8 It shall
even be as when an hungry [ra`eb] man dreameth [chalam], and,
behold, he eateth ['akal]; but he awaketh [quwts], and his soul [nephesh] is
empty [reyq]: or as when ['aher] a thirsty man [tsame']
dreameth [chalam], and, behold, he drinketh [shathah]; but he awaketh [quwts],
and, behold, he is faint [`ayeph], and his soul
[nephesh] hath appetite [shaqaq]: so shall the multitude [hamown] of all the nations [gowy]
be, that fight [tsaba'] against mount [har] Zion [Tsiyown]. KJV-Interlinear
8 As when a
hungry man dreams, and behold, he is eating and awakes with his hunger not
satisfied, or as when a thirsty man dreams, and behold, he is drinking and
awakes faint, with his thirst not quenched, so shall the multitude of all the
nations be that fight against Mount Zion. ESV
Part 1 of 2
The multitude that fights against Zion, is symbolism of all that is in opposition to truth, all that people pursue in place of truth, and therefore they are asleep, in effect, and dreaming of all that they have or want, but when they awaken, they have nothing.
Bible doctrine is the doorway to truth. It is much more than the words that are in the scriptures, it is the process by which God wants us to live. Namely in fellowship, learning, growing.
There are two environments in which you can live. The first is in this temporal or physical world, and the second is the spiritual realm.
We can see the temporal world around us. We cannot see the spiritual world.
But we can be oriented to the spiritual world when we comply with Gods mandate to study, to learn and to live in accordance with His spiritual process.
That process is first of all, to have believed in Christ. That gains you salvation and entrance into the access of the spiritual world.
The spiritual world is lived in, when you confess your sins. We call that being in fellowship.
Commit a sin and you are out of fellowship. Confess and you are in fellowship.
