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 warned them of the consequences of their actions; and went to Egypt. God warned them through the prophet that what they feared was coming to Egypt too. Hear the words of the prophet…
“Yet a small number that escape the sword shall return out of the land of Egypt into the land of Judah, and all the remnant of Judah, that are gone into the land of Egypt to sojourn there, shall know whose words shall stand, Mine, or theirs. And this shall be a sign unto you, saith the LORD, that I will punish you in this place, that ye may know that My words shall surely stand against you for evil…” Jeremiah 44:28-29
When will we learn that it is God’s word that shall stand, and not our own? When will we become the people of God that He desires us to be?
When we hear the word of God, and know, that it is the word of God and God’s word will forever stand, and our words fall away into oblivion. Jesus said,
“This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.” John 6:29
The One whom God has sent is Jesus Christ who died on the cross to save us from sin, redeeming us unto the Father, was buried, and He rose again. That same Jesus will return, and put an end to all vile and evil things. Hear Him His words will stand.
