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.
21 There shall none of his meat ['okel] be left [sariyd]; therefore
shall no man look [chuwl] for his goods [tuwb]. KJV-Interlinear
21 'Nothing remains for him to
devour, Therefore his prosperity does not endure. NASB
Just as the spiritually negative person is driven by
the emotions of his belly, by the lusts of his attitude, even the
reasonableness of his invented beliefs, so it is that the things of this world,
the meat, the foods of his voracious consumption, will end.
The day of ones death soon overtakes him. And, if onlookers could see beyond the grave,
then they would see the individual with none of his wealth, none of his
achievements, none of his status, with none of his abilities.
Naked as he came into this world, so too, the
spiritually negative person will leave this world without his possessions.
The things of this world are temporary. They are here to serve us while we grow up in
our spiritual life. God provided us with
phenomenal logistical support to help sustain us through this life.
We call this support, grace.
From the air that we all breathe, to the educations,
and friends, and jobs, and opportunities we stumble onto in life, all of these
and much more, are there for one purpose only, and that is to get us through
this life while we prepare for our next and real and longer life in eternity.
Truth teaches us that this life is not our
destiny. The next life is. Truth teaches us that the many preparations,
responsibilities and so forth that we experience in this life help teach us of
our spiritual obligations.
But unfortunately too many people make this life, the
belly or their only objective.
Cain couldn't have things his way, so he
murdered. Esau thought more of his
hunger, so he traded his future away for a single meal.
And that is exactly what spiritually negative people
do with their lives. They don't consider
Gods way as an important way. Their
emotions, their logic, their reasonableness, their lusts are more real to them
than true responsibility.
Negative people disregard responsibility for what they
want 'now,' or for what they can have 'now.'
The repercussions of their thoughts and actions don't
concern them. And then
Everything for them, everything in their life simply
Now is the time to post a prayer.
