Without God's voice we are no different than those going to the pit. We can rationalize and intellectualize all that we want, but, it is His revelation and answers that separate us. That is not only true if He is silent but, if we are distracted or spiritually deaf. He shall (future tense) destroy them nor build them up. We often see that they do well for themselves on the backs of others; only for this time, they are not built up into the spiritual being that they will need to be in the next life. Where the Lord is everything to His people, He is nothing to them for now.
