The Hiding Place Prov. 28: 28 CLICK TITLE FOR AUDIO
The doctrinal application of this passage predominately concerns the Tribulation when tribulation saints will hide themselves from the devil and the antichrist who are trying to kill them. The first time we see man hiding himself is in Gen 3, when the wicked devil rose up to tempt Eve and Adam in the garden. After Adam and Eve sinned they tried to hide themselves from God. Men have hidden in several places from the wicked:
Jud 6:1-2 – the children of Israel hid from the Midianites in dens, caves and strongholds.
1 Sam 22:1-2 – David and his men hid in the cave Adullam to hide from Saul.
Jer 41:9 – Asa, the king of Judah, made a pit to hide from Baasha, the king of Israel.
Selah Petra – the place where the Jews will hide from the antichrist during the Tribulation.
Conclusion: But you cannot hide from God – Ps 139:7-12 – though they will try to hide from the Lord during the Tribulation, Rev 6:15-17. The only way to protect yourself is to hide yourself in the Lord Jesus Christ by getting saved, Ps 143:9, 32:7. Soon the earth will be filled with righteousness and there will be no need to hide from any wicked because they won’t be here anymore! Praise the Lord!
