when he seeth [ra'ah] his children [yeled], the
work [ma`aseh] of mine hands [yad], in the midst [qereb] of
him, they shall sanctify [qadash] my name [shem], and sanctify [qadash] the
Holy One [qadowsh] of Jacob [Ya`aqob], and shall fear [`arats]
the God ['elohiym] of Israel [Yisra'el]. KJV-Interlinear
23 For when
he sees his children, the work of my hands, in his midst, they will sanctify my
name; they will sanctify the Holy One of Jacob and will stand in awe of the God
of Israel. ESV
From the beginning of the human race, there have been many generations, in all of which there have been, and are, and will still be more, believers in Christ.
From the time of Abraham to the time of Jacob, when the line of Christ was separated out from the rest of humanity and thus distinguished as Gods people, as different from all other peoples, then all of this has been the work of God, not of man.
Left to his own devices, man would have destroyed himself a long time ago and neither you nor I would be here now.
But God can look down through the tunnel of time and see all of the generations and therefore all of those who will believe and therefore all who belong to Him. But more specifically, He sees the Jewish people, who have failed miserably even since Jacob, and have continued to fail in every generation, and will continue to fail up to and including the last generation in human history.
They too, the Jewish race, should have been destroyed long ago, but were it not for Gods grace and Gods hand in controlling history, there would be no final generation of Jews, at the end of time. And yet there will be a generation, the final generation that will finally turn to Christ.
And they will be there despite all of Satans efforts to remove them and prevent them from making it to the end of history.
This accomplishment, will be Gods accomplishment.
And despite their refusal to recognize Christ throughout history, they will then sanctify His name, even the Holy One of Jacob, namely the Messiah, who is Jesus Christ, and stand in awe in His personal presence at the Second Advent and thereafter.
These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.
And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.
To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.
The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.
But you have to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.
