You must be in fellowship prior to your Bible study, so that the spiritual information you receive can become a source, of blessing to your soul and produce spiritual growth.
15 He hath swallowed down [bala`] riches [chayil], and he
shall vomit them up again [qow']: God ['el] shall cast them out [yarash]
of his belly [beten]. KJV-Interlinear
15 'He swallows riches, But will
vomit them up; God will expel them from
his belly. NASB
The word, 'bala' means to devour with excessive greed,
passion, to devour with a voracious hunger, as with a wild beast that is
extremely hungry and wastes no time in eating its prey.
Such is any person who lacks doctrine within
them. They are hungry, whether they
think of themselves in that way or not.
The soul is a sponge. The soul requires food in order
to survive. Foods for the soul come in
the form of information, and Bible doctrine is the right kinds of foods. Rejection of truth leaves only the poisons of
the world on the table for consumption.
Thus the soul starves, and the more it starves, the more voracious it
becomes over time.
The pleasant things of life whether foods or
horrendous crimes become more and more enticing.
What happens when you eat too fast. You generally will overeat for your system,
and like a dog, you vomit out of an involuntary reaction of the rapid
intake. You aspirate the poison into
your lungs, and then you die.
This is a picture of mans life without Bible
doctrine. Over the course of time,
whether years, or decades, the result is always the same. Lack of Bible doctrine ends up in the death
of a failed life.
Anything, everything you earn, accumulate, attain, are
recognized for in life, will end up as vomit on the ground. This should be an annual awards show. The Annual 'V' Awards!
The ground is dust, and man is dust. Both and dust and his production, which is
vomit, sooner or later mingle in the dust.
And such is the basis for all of mans boasting. That should impress you and make you happy
This all applies to the wicked people of the
world. From those, in the Middle East
and even in some African nations, who are hardly more than a step above animals
with their kidnappings, murders, rapes and so forth, to those who live in more
modern nations, but lack the backbone for fighting such atrocities, to all
those nice people, who firmly believe that what they do seems reasonable and
harms no one. Then all who lack truth in
their souls will end up in the same dust/vomit mixture.
Look in the mirror of the Word of God. See yourself, and don't be one of them.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
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.
