10 He openeth [galah] also their
ear ['ozen] to discipline [muwcar], and commandeth ['amar]
that they return [shuwb] from iniquity ['aven]. KJV-Interlinear
10 'And He opens their ear to
instruction, And commands that they return from evil. NASB
And God opens up their ear to instruction.
This should be very clear for everyone who has the
breath of life in themselves. All that
you do in life points to either truth, or deceptions from truth.
It is your responsibility to give God a hearing, to
listen to the world, to the Word of God, to everything you think, say and do in
life and sort it all out.
You examine all of the religions out there, all of the
philosophies out there, all of the political schemes, marketing schemes, social
schemes, educational schemes and so forth.
You learn from life, on the job so to speak, and you
either figure it all out or you don't.
But God can never be faulted for your failures,
because God always provides instruction.
Instruction, which is clear and easy to comprehend. You, if you listen, will have the resources
to discern between the truth of life and the deceptions.
But then, if you do not listen to God directly
(through the scriptures), then you have the common sense instructions of life
and those also came from God through the divine establishment principles which
were designed for the entire human race.
Establishment principles include - volition, marriage,
family, authority, free enterprise, nationalism, patriotism, due process,
charity, standing up for what is right, and many more.
Each and all of these truths are countered in life by
Satan's evil principles - slavery or tyranny, homosexuality or shacking up,
communes, disrespect for authority or arrogance, the many forms of business
regulation or socialism, internationalism, disloyalty or infidelity or betrayal
or fickleness, vigilantism, greed, cowardice and on and on.
All of these things have their natural power of
clarity. People know the difference
between right and wrong.
Which path they choose depends on their motives,
conveniences, prejudices, and general attitude as to what they will accept for
No one, repeat, no one can go to the end of their life
and say that they did not know.
Whether it is the child, the wife, the husband, or the
nation, it makes no difference. All have
their God assigned obligations, and God makes everything clear to everyone. You have no excuse.
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.
