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.
11 And he
shall spread forth [paras] his hands [yad] in the
midst [qereb] of them, as he that swimmeth [sachah] spreadeth forth [paras] his
hands to swim [sachah]: and he shall bring down
[shaphel] their pride [ga`avah] together with the spoils ['orobah] of their hands [yad]. KJV-Interlinear
11 And he will spread out his hands in the midst of it as a swimmer
spreads his hands out to swim, but the LORD will lay low his pompous pride
together with the skill of his hands. ESV.
A swimmer, extends his hands, spreads them out, in order to clear away everything in his way so he can advance and continue on his way with his purpose.
And so, it is God, or specifically Jesus Christ, who proceeds with the final judgment of the world. He removed the water or symbolically, anything and everything, that is in His way or that is placed in His way, so as to complete His purpose of judgment.
And just as water poses no obstacle or barrier for a swimmer, so too, nothing in this world poses an obstacle of prevention, so as to deter or undermine Christ’s resolve.
Anything and anyone who rejects Christ and/or Bible doctrine, is rejecting truth. Any rejection of truth by default means that you accept lies as your substitute truth, and that is a function of arrogance. To presume that your beliefs are better than truth.
The world operates on lies, and therefore presumes that anything in the world is fair game and open to them for their possession.
And that is a false presumption.
God created all things for His family, not for His enemies. The new universe will be the ultimate testimony of that purpose. Only heirs or family members will inherit the new universe and eternal life.
And by means of His own hands, God will lay low, destroy and take back, all that those who have rejected Him, have taken for their own.
And all that was taken by those who have no right to anything, will be lost by them, forever.
It is a sad thing to not know what or why you were placed in this world.
It is a sad thing to not know your purpose in this world.
If you were born alive, and exist in this world, then God has a purpose for you. And know this, He intended for you to fulfill your purpose because no one else can do what He intends for you to do. Regardless of your circumstances, there is a reason for them. And you will discover that reason, if and only when you take up your pursuit of spiritual growth, through your daily Bible study.
Without that study, you will likely live in the fog of life and never know the purpose that God intended for you.
And again, regardless of your circumstances, God put you there in order to glorify Him, not you. For it is He who carries you through any and all situations to demonstrate to the world, that He can carry anyone through anything, anywhere, anytime, and there is nothing that the world can do to prevent it.
Only you can prevent your purpose through the arrogant of indifference or pretense or rejection of truth. And then, that arrogance will be eventually be squashed and removed, and you may eventually realize your tremendous mistake, but probably too late. That is if you are rigid and refuse to learn.
