27 Depart [cuwr] from evil [ra`], and do [`asah] good [towb]; and dwell [shakan] for
evermore [`owlam]. KJV-Interlinear
27 Turn away from evil and do good; so shall you dwell forever.
To depart from evil and do good, is a command. This is something that God expects you to do right now. But in this life of flesh and blood, in this Devils world, in our weakness of flesh, how can we obey that command?
And the answer is very simple if you have been pursuing a daily study.
To dwell, means to live in a home, to establish a place of residence where you live and function in your life.
The Levitical offerings teach all of these conditions. The principles taught in the New Testament, teach all of these conditions. They are all one and the same, and have been since the fall of Adam.
In this life we are flesh and blood and burdened with the sin nature. None of that will go away until we leave this world and acquire our resurrection body for the next life.
But until then, we have to function in this life in spite of all of our handicaps and limitations.
God has a plan, and He made provision for all of our weaknesses and deficiencies.
This Psalm is addressed to believers in Christ, or people who are saved. It is not addressed to unbelievers, or people who are not saved.
Salvation, of course, is the prerequisite for the spiritual life. But once a person has been saved, then confession becomes the prerequisite for the functioning spiritual life of the individual Christian.
Therefore, to depart from evil, requires confession, which places one into fellowship and therefore free from the sin nature control of their life, and under the control of the Holy Spirit.
Once you confess, you depart from evil and you become a resident in fellowship, which is the functional part of the spiritual life.
And do good, refers to the production of the functioning spiritual life. Anything and everything that you do while you are in fellowship, becomes the production of good. Good, in this regard, means divine good as opposed to human good.
Human good, is the production of the sin nature, and is typically referred to as wood, hay, and stubble, or things that are easily destroyed and worthless.
Divine good, or the production of the spiritual life is typically referred to as gold, silver, and precious stones, or things that have eternal intrinsic value, and are never without value.
And dwell forever, is the expectation that you will live within the boundaries of the functioning spiritual life, which is a reference to living your life in fellowship with God.
Therefore, if you understand the principle of the promised land, which refers to a place of residence, the place of blessing, the place of peace and security, the place of a relationship with God. Then, living in fellowship is that spiritual promised land within the boundaries of your soul during this life, and of course it will be expanded greatly in the new universe to come.
These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.
And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever. To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.
The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.
But you have to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.
