14 Because the palaces ['armown] shall be forsaken [natash]; the multitude [hamown] of the city [`iyr] shall be left [`azab]; the forts [`ophel] and towers [bachan] shall be for dens [ma`arah] for [`ad] ever [`owlam], a joy [masows] of wild asses [pere'], a pasture [mir`eh] of flocks [`eder]; KJV-Interlinear
14 For the palace is forsaken, the populous city deserted; the hill and the watchtower will become dens forever, a joy of wild donkeys, a pasture of flocks; ESV
Indifference which is disguised as interest, desire for doctrine which is described in some form of helplessness, wherein people talk the talk, but won’t do anything themselves, are typical descriptions of a spiritually negative society.
And sooner or later in history, in any given nation, in society, and especially in individuals, destruction comes into the life, when God is not in it.
Destruction plays no favorites. The palaces of magnificence and wealth, the forts and towers of life that people rely on, will all come tumbling down.
When economies fail, when society fails, when nations fail, there is no resource or source of support to look to, whether it be insurance, or possessions, or status, or anything else.
Jesus Christ is the source of all things good.
When Christ is not in your life then you don’t have, all things good, you have the opposite.
And instead of the pleasant things of life, the environment becomes a home of dens of thieves, and the roaming ground of wild animals and nature.
And this is the typical description of a jungle environment, where the rules of life and happiness and safety and hope do not exist.
And so the questions are always before each individual. What do you think of Christ? What do you think of doctrine? Do you care enough to do something about it? And, will you do something?
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.
