10 Now will I rise [quwm], saith ['amar] the LORD [Yahovah]; now will I be exalted [ramam]; now will I lift up [nasa'] myself. KJV-Interlinear
10 “Now I will arise,” says the LORD, “now I will lift myself up; now I will be exalted. ESV
The word now, is repeated three times, and the repetition emphasizes the great force of the transition from the previous verse, to the present verse and those following.
This denotes a period of the deepest and most severe distress that will befall believers in Christ. And though the principle of the verse can be applied to anyone throughout history, its primary intent is for those believers who will be surrounded by evil and the enemies of God, near the end of the tribulation.
The state of Christianity at the end of the tribulation, will appear to be in total and utter ruin.
Satan, through the antichrist, will seemingly be on the verge of destroying and eliminating every believer from the face of the earth, as well as all people of Jewish descent.
And thus, when believers are at their very lowest point of helplessness, it will be then, that God, who has predetermined, that this will be the perfect time for His intervention.
God will arise, and by God we mean Jesus Christ, and arising means He will take action.
God will lift Himself up, meaning He will make Himself visible and known.
God will be exalted, meaning he will receive full credit for His power, for His authority, and for His action.
Study [by instruction],
to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]
a workman [student]
that need not be ashamed [ignorant],
rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]
the word of truth [Bible doctrine].
If you can dream and not make dreams your master,
If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,
If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,
If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,
Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.
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.
