29 Lo, all these things worketh [pa`al] God ['el] oftentimes [pa`am] [shalowsh] with man [geber],
30 To bring back [shuwb] his soul [nephesh] from the
pit [shachath], to be enlightened ['owr] with the light ['owr] of
the living [chay]. KJV-Interlinear
29 'Behold, God does all these
oftentimes with men, 30 To bring back his soul from the pit, That he may be
enlightened with the light of life. NASB
God does all of these things, oftentimes, many
times. He does them once, twice, three
times and more, over and over and over again.
God communicates to the consciousness of humanity,
within their deepest of dreams, to their innermost thoughts, to the very
foundation of mans thoughts. God brings
afflictions, trials, tests, barriers, into the paths, the daily lives of
men. God brings a message, from a unique
messenger. Unique so that the message is
lucid and clear and cannot be confused with any other message offered by any
other messenger from this world.
And why does God do all of this, in this world, in
this life? In order to save a person
God does not coerce anyone into believing anything He
says. But God does make it very clear
what the truth of His word is, and what the alternative opinion from this world
God shows the clear differences between truth and the
lies of life. And, God allows man to
make up his own mind, even if man elects to destroy himself.
There are two types of destruction.
The first applies to unbelievers only. Rejection of Christ, the unique messenger,
will lead to the eternal Lake of Fire, to the pit from which there is no
The second applies to believers only. Since all believers will go to heaven, there
is no further condemnation or risk of the Lake of Fire, which would apply to
them, but in going to heaven there will be significant additional blessings
they might receive in heaven. Blessings,
which will last forever.
Rejection of Gods doctrine, failure to advance in ones
spiritual life, will result in the loss of those additional blessings in
heaven. Since they are eternal and since
they are blessings that exist beyond mans thinking or imagination, then they
are phenomenal blessings indeed and their loss will be a vast loss.
So, God warns us repeatedly in order that we might not
lose out on our eternal life and eternal blessings, neither of which can even
be measured by any earthly standard, they are so vast.
