11 Tremble [charad], ye women that are at ease [sha'anan]; be troubled [ragaz], ye careless ones [batach]: strip [pashat] you, and make you bare [`arar], and gird [chagowr] sackcloth upon your loins [chalats]. KJV-Interlinear
11 Tremble, you women who are at ease, shudder, you complacent ones; strip, and make yourselves bare, and tie sackcloth around your waist. ESV
At ease, and complacent, are two terms that describe the carelessness of indifference. Everyone who refuses instruction in the daily study of the word of God, fill this description.
And the warning is that this carelessness will result in your being stripped bare of all of your possessions, and thrown into an atmosphere of deep sorrow and grieving.
Wearing the rags of despair, are in contrast to wearing the fine clothes of prosperity.
When people are in a deep sleep, then it is difficult to arouse them and bring them to a point of conscious awareness. They are in a daze, and the reality around them is like a fog.
Spiritual sleep places one in a daze and in a fog.
Indifference exists when there are no seemingly real threats around you, and you are comfortable and complacent in your life. People don’t take the threats of life, or the threats of eternity, seriously.
The here and now is what is real, and the tomorrows are of no concern.
And therefore the Bible warns, and repeats the warnings, and repeats the threatenings of the repercussions that indifferent complacency will eventually bring into the life.
Those who are indifferent and seemingly comfortable in their worldly life, are told to tremble and shudder. Because they are facing a tremendous loss in their life. A loss that they don’t take seriously, or even believe is real. And for the most part, even though life is filled with the ups and downs of difficulties throughout life, the real disaster typically does not come until the end of ones life. And then it is too late.
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.
