My reading of Scripture today was Ezekiel 15 - 16. Chapter 16 describes the sins of Judah and Israel, and why God judged them, the sins of Sodom and their judgment (16:49-50). We can see clearly that God does not tolerate sin. Sin is what God calls sin; it does not matter at all what … Continue reading The Grace of GOD is Greater Far…
"Because, even because they have seduced My people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered morter: say unto them which daub it with untempered morter, that it shall fall: there shall be an overflowing shower; and ye, O great hailstones, shall fall; and … Continue reading The Poverty of Whitewash
"He cried also in mine ears with a loud voice, saying, Cause them that have charge over the city to draw near, even every man with his destroying weapon in his hand. And, behold, six men came from the way of the higher gate, which lieth toward the north, and every man a slaughter weapon in … Continue reading There is Judgment at the House of God
"And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent unto me; and, lo, a roll of a book was therein; and He spread it before me; and it was written within and without: and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe. Moreover He said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this … Continue reading Devour the Word of GOD
"Who is he that saith, and it cometh to pass, when the Lord commandeth it not? Out of the mouth of the Most High proceedeth not evil and good? Wherefore doth a living man complain, a man for the punishment of his sins? Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the … Continue reading The Sovereign Hand of God
Today I want you to compare the life of two rebellious kings. Jehoichin which Scripture tells us "...did evil in the sight of the LORD" and Zedekiah also "...did evil in the sight of the LORD" (2 Kings 24:9, 19). The following verses tell us more of Zedekiah, and chapter 52 of Jeremiah gives us … Continue reading The Life of Two Kings
"The word which Jeremiah the prophet commanded Seraiah the son of Neriah, the son of Maaseiah, when he went with Zedekiah the king of Judah into Babylon in the fourth year of his reign. And this Seraiah was a quiet prince. So Jeremiah wrote in a book all the evil that should come upon Babylon, even … Continue reading So Jeremiah Wrote in a Book…
"In those days, and in that time, saith the LORD, the children of Israel shall come, they and the children of Judah together, going and weeping: they shall go, and seek the LORD their God. They shall ask the way to Zion with their faces thitherward, saying, Come, and let us join ourselves to the LORD … Continue reading The Children of Israel Shall Come
Jeremiah's prophecy is coming to a close. He is closing by preaching God's message that is going to effect the Gentile nations. He will judge them because of their harsh treatment of Judah and Israel. Chapters 46 - 51 gives messages of warning to Egypt, Moab, Edom, Kedar, and to Babylon. Hear the message of … Continue reading The Words of the King
In a world where there are many words spoken. Some religious, some political, much trivial and inconsequential, talk among family and friends of events, church activities, teaching, and on and on we could go. In the prophet Jeremiah's day following the capture of Jerusalem the people chose to disobey God, even though the prophet had … Continue reading Whose Words Shall Stand?
It is not a matter of "If"; it is a matter of when God's word comes to pass. How do you respond to the messenger of God's Word when that word is explained in expositional preaching, and it leaves you feeling guilty of sin, or it seems contrary to what "You believe"? There was a … Continue reading When God’s Word is Fulfilled
We must consider, and realize that every word from God is not pleasant, comfortable, or encouraging. Many times it is not what we want to hear. Hear the word of the LORD through Jeremiah the prophet to king Zedekiah... "Then Zedekiah the king sent, and took him out: and the king asked him secretly in … Continue reading The Word From the LORD
God's covenant with David is eternal. Hear the word from the prophet Jeremiah... "Thus saith the LORD; If ye can break My covenant of the day, and My covenant of the night, and that there should not be day and night in their season; then may also My covenant be broken with David My servant, that … Continue reading Can Day or Night Cease?
Does it seem to you like God does not hear you? Are you going through troubled times? Have illness, and financial loss started troubling you? I am sorry to hear that. Do you question "Why?" or "Why me?" or "Why now?" Me too. Yet, we must trust the LORD to always be there with us, … Continue reading None Shall Make Him Afraid
Jeremiah did not enjoy preaching the message which God gave him to preach. He loved the people, the priests (they were members of his own family), the princes, and the kings. He loved the temple and what it represented. Most of all Jeremiah loved God and His commandments. When Hananiah the prophet preached that God … Continue reading The Teaching of Rebellion
