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.
23 Much [rob] food [okel] is in the tillage [niyr] of the poor [ro'sh] [ruwsh]: but there is [yesh] that is destroyed [caphah] for want [lo] of judgment [mishpat]. KJV-Interlinear 23 Abundant food is in the fallow ground of the poor, But it is swept away by injustice. NASB
Simple little principles of life, but often stumbled over by people who just don't care. The poor are all of us - members of the human race. On the scale of the universe, we are but a speck of dust. We are all poor. We are born poor, having nothing to our name, nor even the power to control our own destiny.
Were it not for God we would not have any opportunity to defeat sin and death. The two basic flaws in our being.
There are two systems of justice (another pair) in this universe. Gods justice, and all other justice. Gods justice is true and fair and the only legitimate justice in existence. The justice of the world is injustice. Anything which rules within the system of the jungle is limited and temporary at best.
We are to live in the environment of the fellowship sphere. We are not to live in the environment of the jungle, or worldliness, or the carnal life. All of which, are living outside of fellowship.
When a person has disregard or disinterest for God and the spiritual life, then all that he has is ultimately forfeit.
God has made tremendous provision for each one of us. That is our fallow ground. Fallow ground is ground which has been laying silent and un-tilled, building up the necessary nutrients to produce a bumper crop.
The tilling here is the first tilling, the first planting, the first access to the ground for production. Each individual in life has a plot of ground, a plan for his own life, which God has preordained specifically for him. That is you by the way.
God has provided all of the necessary resources to give you a fantastic life, but if you ignore God and your spiritual life, then you are in effect allowing the winds of the jungle to blow away all the riches which God has provided. The winds of the jungle are the injustices of sin and death. The environment of the sin nature in which you choose to live your life.
Only you are to blame for your failure.
In order to claim your blessings, you have to be obedient to God. Recall our spiritual life checklist. Revisit it from time to time. Monitor your spiritual status from time to time (daily). Check yourself in the mirror of the Word of God. Make sure that you are not becoming indifferent, complacent, or falling away from your spiritual life because of bitterness toward someone or something, or allowing anything to come between you and your spiritual inheritance.
When God rested on that seventh day, all was in place for each of our individual lives. God has done and is doing, all that is necessary to give us a great life. You have to do your part too, and that is to stick with your daily study, lest your plot of ground gets blown away right out from under you.
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.
