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.
29 This is the portion [cheleq] of a wicked [rasha`] man ['adam] from God ['elohiym], and
the heritage [nachalah] appointed ['emer] unto him by God ['el]. KJV-Interlinear
29 'This is the wicked man's
portion from God, Even the heritage decreed to him by God.' NASB
You have two possible destinies waiting for you in the
future. One with varying decrees of
success, and one with total and utter failure.
As an unbeliever, the total and utter failure is your
only destiny. That is the Lake of Fire. Your attitude toward Christ will determine
whether this destiny will apply to you.
As a believer in Christ, your destiny awaits you in
heaven, but your blessing package will vary based on your spiritual growth and spiritual
production from this life. Your attitude
toward doctrine will determine the degree of your success in life as far as God
And it is God who makes all final evaluations, not
God has foreseen your life and future. He saw this in eternity past. But it is you who will choose your own
The term wicked, applies to anyone who fails in their
spiritual life. Whether believer of
unbeliever, makes no difference.
Wickedness applies to anyone who rejects, ignores, pretends, compromises

And even though Zophar finishes his attack against
Job, with his certain threats of Gods judicial arrangement for the wicked, and

How you fail, is irrelevant. Failure is a fact and by choice. What you
think is what you are, and no one can force or enslave your thinking unless you
give in to them voluntarily. All
thinking is private and hidden from people.
You can certainly fool others, but you cannot fool God.
Where positive volition exists, God provides doctrine
for growth and victory over the evils of this world, no matter what your
circumstances might be.
Where negative volition exists, God does not interfere
with your choice of failure. But He does
provide and prove your knowledge of what it is that you are doing. No one has any excuses.
Job puts forth an endless array of thoughts and
truths, but his friends resist them systematically. Their attitudes remain sealed within their
own beliefs, and in them, they refuse to listen or deviate. And such is the case will all who fail in
their spiritual lives.
Job is suffering yet he keeps an open mind. His friends are not suffering, and yet their
minds are closed despite their academic knowledge of good and evil as they
pretend to be zealous for their beliefs, but are in fact inwardly more insulted
by Jobs comments and warnings, then they are in the correct application of
Their vanity shows in their own words.
Circumstances, environment, advantages or not, are all
irrelevant when it comes to the spiritual life or ones choices against it.
When all is said and done, we can neither earn nor
deserve anything from God, but at the end of the day, there will be those who
will deserve the destiny, which God has waiting for all who saw no importance
for God, or for those who pursued some substitute for God, in their life.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
