1. Humanity’s Condition - Perishing
Perish = make naked; to uncover; to cast off restraint
Note – To perish means these people are vulnerable to the consequences of breaking the law!
Illustration – Like the outcome of the pilot who broke the law, many people’s lives are broken and hurting because of sin.
2. Heaven’s Concern – Keep the law = happiness
Keepeth—to attend to, to take heed to, to regard
Happy—to be blessed. To have Joy!

3. Heaven’ Cure – Vision
Vision—Revealed Word of God
1 Samuel 3:1—And the child Samuel ministered unto the LORD before Eli. And the word of the LORD was precious in those days; there was no open vision.
