He Does Not Learn

We come upon  some very serious truths  when we study all  of God’s word  in the Bible.     Judgment is a very serious truth  we all have to face.     The prophet,  Isaiah,  talks about how the LORD will judge absolutely everyone  in the end.

Those who love  and trust  in the LORD’s salvation  through faith  in Christ Jesus  have the peace  of knowing God’s righteousness.     But, even though the wicked might know “about” God,  they refuse  to honor or respect  God’s authority  and wisdom.     So,  they just do whatever they want,  whenever they want  because they feel they have authority  over their lives  and will never have to face  any sort of judgment  because God either doesn’t exist  —  or doesn’t care.

That is why Isaiah 26:10 says  about them,

Though the wicked is shown favor,

He does not learn righteousness;

He deals unjustly  in the land  of uprightness,

And does not perceive the majesty  of the LORD.

 

These truths have been evident  throughout history.     There are wicked people  who seem  to be successful  in everything they want  to do.     They are mean,  nasty,  and belligerent  in everything they want  to do.     And,  they seem to get away with it.     Though they know “about” God,  they couldn’t care less  and refuse  to learn righteousness”.      Many get to be leaders  in the community  and even in the government.     But, their position  of leadership  only serves to make them more arrogant  and defiant.

Because unbelievers are so spiritually stone dead,  God’s word says they will be destroyed  in the end.     But those who believe  and love the LORD will rise  to eternal life.     Those who gladly trust the LORD  see the goodness  of God’s power  in creation  and God’s love  in His plan  of salvation.     That is why  believers love  to learn righteousness”  and want to become righteous  to glorify God’s love and salvation  in Christ Jesus.

So,  what are we gladly learning  as we study God’s word  in the Bible?     We are not  to trust any man’s opinion,  but need to learn righteousness”  through the Bible.     People’s opinions tend to invent all sorts of new rules and regulations  that are not in God’s word.     We need to be intent on learning straight from our LORD  —  and He has promised  to help us  as we look for His leading.

As we see the wondrous love  in all God’s ways,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  Your every word leads us  in learning  Your righteousness!     Blessed be Your Name!”

Love,
