Job 18:14-15



14 His confidence [mibtach] shall be rooted out [nathaq] of his tabernacle ['ohel], and it shall bring [tsa`ad] him to the king [melek] of terrors [ballahah].

15 It shall dwell [shakan] in his tabernacle ['ohel], because it is none [baliy] of his: brimstone [gophriyth] shall be scattered [zarah] upon his habitation [naveh]. KJV-Interlinear



14 'He is torn from the security of his tent, And they march him before the king of terrors. 15 'There dwells in his tent nothing of his; Brimstone is scattered on his habitation. NASB



The destruction of the spiritually negative person is a slow and systematic process, culminating in death. It occurs over the course of ones lifetime. Whether that lifespan is short or long is irrelevant.


There is but one truth in this universe and that truth comes from God and from God alone. Our only access to that truth and truthful view of life comes from our daily study of the Word of God.


It is not necessarily the specific words of the Bible, which teaches us truth, because truth comes in many forms of academic information systems. Science for example, or medicine. Both of these contain many truths from which we learn things about the universe around us.


But our pattern of thought, which is established by our fellowship status in the spiritual life, and our consistent study of the Word of God, opens our eyes to discernment. This promotes thought, innovation, and even imagination in a good way.


But here, Bildad continues to describe the downfall of the spiritually negative person.


And again, there is but one truth in this universe. When a person rejects truth, then he embraces lies. Lies are the opposite of truth and the only thing left for a person to lean on in life. Whatever a person knows, becomes his confidence. Whatever a person achieves, becomes his confidence. Whatever a person believes, becomes his confidence. Whatever a person owns, becomes his confidence. Whatever a person controls, becomes his confidence. And so forth throughout ones life. Things, circumstances, status, all these and more become the basis for a person's confidence.


Even terrorists, knowing that what they are doing is criminal, when constantly exposed to the promises of an afterlife, begin to believe those lies. And they pursue them with vigor, just as a charging herd runs off the cliff to their own death.


Their confidences in life are torn from them. They are torn, ripped off, shredded away in violent terms, when death occurs. And the confidences, their lies, their beliefs, their possessions, their status, their abilities, their earthly attributes whatever they are, are stripped away at the point of death, and their confidences are no more.


Negative volition toward truth, is positive volition toward lies. In these, the person marches toward his certain conclusion to his life, in this life. As a king seizes an accused, with an army of arresting officers, the negative person has nowhere to run, no place to hide. He cannot escape, and he is marched to his execution.


An execution that, remember our previous study, was tailor made just for him, and tailor made by himself.


The king of terrors is the moment of death, and from that there is no worse terror, and there is no escape, there is no recovery. Confidence in this world is confidence in nothing, therefore there are no resources with which to face death. So, the spiritually negative person, though he may try to fake confidence for others, from deep within himself, there will be sheer terror.


Inside his very own home, his soul, his tent, there exists nothing for him to call his own. He invested in the worlds things and academics and philosophies and religions and opinions, and those, all combined, add up to zero. He has nothing with which to face the ultimate challenge to anyone's life. And that is the end of their life.


Brimstone is a term used to describe total desolation. Sodom and Gomorrah were totally destroyed. They have never been located, and never will be located.


And so it will be with the soul of the negative person. And remember we are speaking of spiritual negativity.


When the negative person leaves this life, his soul will be totally vacant of any assets. Sure you will know your name and you will be able to speak. Unbelievers will be screaming and screaming forever. But the desolation of ones soul is not the destruction of the soul. The soul is indestructible and will never be destroyed.


Unbelievers will still possess their soul and human life within it, but they will have nothing else. Nothing to get them into heaven, nothing to keep them out of the Lake of Fire.


As for negative believers, they will leave this world in terror, but will be admitted immediately into heaven where all terror will cease. They will still have no assets, no spiritual resources, to show for their life, except for their belief in Christ. They will stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ, and receive no extended blessings for all of eternity. Their negative attitude in this life will result in their phenomenal loss for eternity.


Their loss is again, of their own making. They will have no excuse.

End Of Lesson

Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
