You must be in fellowship prior to your Bible study, so that the spiritual information you receive can become a source, of blessing to your soul and produce spiritual growth.
shall be left [`azab] together [yachad] unto the
fowls [`ayit] of the mountains [har], and to the beasts [bahemah]
of the earth ['erets]: and the fowls [`ayit] shall summer [quwts] upon
them, and all the beasts [bahemah] of the earth
['erets] shall winter [charaph.] upon them. KJV-Interlinear
6 They will
be left together for mountain birds of prey, And for the beasts of the earth; And
the birds of prey will spend the summer feeding on them, And all the beasts of
the earth will spend harvest time on them. NASB
The symbolism of the imagery of mans plans and Gods authority, is ended and the reality is now stated. In those final days of history, the plans of man will be interrupted and Gods will, will seize hold of the final events of history.
The powers that be, their armies and their grand schemes, will all come to a sudden end.
The armies will be destroyed in their tracks and they will lay prostrate scattered across the region, unburied and now food for the beasts and birds, not just for a few weeks, but for many months through all the seasons of the year.
And of course we know that the remnant of people will not be enough to bury the dead, but they will have the help of scavenger animals for removing the rot and stench from the face of the earth. This great feast of the scavengers will continue for a long time, through summer and winter.
Where there once was the pride of certain victory for arrogant armies, now is food rotting in the fields. Their plans were corrupt and now their bodies fulfill that corruption.
Do not for a moment begin to think that this principle does not also apply to you. For anyone who does not obey Gods mandate for living in fellowship, for pursuing a daily study, for living the spiritual life as God has designed it, not you, then your end will be no better than the arrogant armies of the future.
We all like to read about things that are future, but we all need to realize that these future events will happen only because the vast majority of people today will put themselves in that position because they have and will reject Gods mandates. That is something that you should not be a part of either directly through your own rejection or pretense, or indirectly through your indifference and apathy.
