To be in the right place at the right time is one of the highest achievements of life.

The analogy to water in the form of flooding represents a tremendous power of Satan in the form of the attack of his demon assault army.

The land mass represents the power of God, which depletes and neutralizes the violence of historical disaster.

The strong current of the water does not have power over the stable land mass.

“Opened” - aor-act-ind - anoigo = to open.
With conjunction kai = “in fact, the land mass opened.”

Aor-act-ind - katapino = to swallow, drink up, devour.

Flood waters - the power of Satan, the attack of the third demon assault army.

The land mass represents the power of God, protecting Israel in the greatest hour of its need, the holocaust of the Tribulation, the time of the devil’s desperation.

These certain blessings include the fact that they have in the Abrahamic, Palestinian, Davidic, and New Covenants to Israel certain things that are not to be fulfilled until the Second Advent.

All Satanic attacks are made against the grace of God.

One of the greatest of all satanic attacks against the grace of God is religion.

Religion is not the same as Christianity, Rev 17-18; ecumenical religion of the Tribulation, under the power of Satan, is also attacking the grace of God.

He will have the power, the fantastic power of flooding as used here, or a tidal wave, or rapids, or any other form of uncontrolled violence in water.

Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world, 1JO 4:4b.

Not only will they be delivered, but they are going to have one thousand years of great blessing to follow that.

The grace principle is the key to the land mass.

Accusative singular direct object - potamos = the flood waters of the anti-Semitism of the Tribulation.

Those that are disembodied spirits and those that have bodies.

Just as land mass dissipates eventually the power of flood waters or tidal waves or any water type violence, so the land mass as the power of God neutralizes the violent attack of the third demon assault army.

To be in the right place at the right time is one of the highest achievements of life.

Being in the right place at the right time is often the key to success.

Residence, function, momentum inside of the PPOG.

Abraham entered into reversionism from not being in the right place at the right time, GEN 12:10-20, he went to Egypt; and, GEN 20:1-18, Gerar.

David’s real problems began by being in the wrong geographical location, operation Bathsheba, 2SA 11:1, Then it happened in the spring, at the time when kings go out to battle, that David sent Joab and his servants with him and all Israel, and they destroyed the sons of Ammon and besieged Rabbah. But David stayed at Jerusalem.

Many times a geographical change is necessary for spiritual growth.

In the life of Abraham, the change of geographical location was the basis for separating Abraham from his family and relatives.

If believers are doing what God wants them to do, then they will eventually wind up in the place where God wants them to be. Being in the wrong place at the wrong time means no divine revelation.

There are environments and human associations which are detrimental, hazardous, to the concentration of the word of God.

Whether the hindrances are geographical or personal, friend and social distractions which would keep you from the daily function of perception, metabolization and application of Bible doctrine.

There is only one place to be and that is the place where the provision is -the place of wisdom.

You can be in the dungeon during your entire Christian life on this earth, and that means you will be in the right place at the right time for discipline.

David would still be a shepherd and we would never have heard of David, had it not been for the fact that he was in the plan of God.

He had lived in a marvelous state of humility and virtue, and God put him in the right place at the right time.

When there is frustration and anger, arrogance intensifies.

Aor-pass-ind - orgizo = rage, or anger.

Aorist tense - constantive aorist contemplating the action of the verb in its entirety, rage which results from frustrated arrogance.

Frustrated arrogance is motivation for a great percentage of the evils in the world, not just sin, but sin combined into some form of evil.

Passive voice - Satan receives the action of the verb from his frustrated arrogance; he has intense anger, resentment, animosity, wrathful indignation - an angelic tantrum.

Having everything going for him does not in any way imply success.

You can have every talent, every ability, every type of mentality and beauty that is desirable among human creatures and still be a total failure.

Reason: arrogance.

Indicative - orgizo - rage or anger = declarative for the reality of Satan’s extreme anger, and it is directed at Israel.

“With the woman” - epi + locative of gune = being frustrated with a woman; it refers to the woman, or Israel.

The arrogant person, when he attacks someone else and does not succeed in his attack, then he becomes perpetually resentful toward that person.

Satan is changed by his own arrogance and now he blames Israel for his problems.

Frustrated arrogance produces anger, rage, which in turn becomes the motivation for every form of evil and revenge.

Satan failed and now he hates the Jew and he blames the Jew for all of his problems.

When there is arrogance, and arrogance is frustrated, then there is also some form of neurosis, or psychosis.

Once you are in a state of arrogance, and that state of arrogance is frustrated, by some relation with someone, and you become angry or enraged, this becomes motivation for a lifetime of vengeful activity.

Aor-act-inf - poieo = to produce something, to make something.

Preposition meta +
genitive of adjective loipos.
Meta + loipos = those who were delivered and will continue to be delivered, the remnant, the survivors.
