"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
The prophet Jeremiah was faithful in preaching, in delivering the word the LORD had given to him. It was not a popular word. The destruction of the city of Jerusalem and the temple, the captivity of the people, and it lasting for 70 years was not what they wanted to hear. They had hired prophets, … Continue reading All the People Heard
We first must realize that GOD is holy, righteous, and just. There is no evil in Him, neither can He do evil. He is our creator. He has made all that is, and by Him all things consist (Colossians 1:17). He holds all things together. If He did not do so the Universe would fly … Continue reading Understanding GOD’S Anger
We will not be thinking of the pump which pumps the blood through the human body, through its many miles of arteries and veins. We are speaking of the centrality of the human being, of Adam kind. Hear the word of the LORD concerning the heart of man [generic]. "The heart is deceitful above all … Continue reading The Heart; Who Can Know It?
“Therefore thus saith the LORD, If thou return, then will I bring thee again, and thou shalt stand before Me: and if thou take forth the precious from the vile, thou shalt be as my mouth: let them return unto thee; but return not thou unto them. And I will make thee unto this people … Continue reading For the Faithful Man of God
There is much pride and arrogance in our world today. So much so that many in their pride exalt themselves over others, and especially over God Himself. We can often live as though we know what is best for our lives; better than God knows. We hear it in questions: "Why does God allow that … Continue reading Glory, Wisdom, and Might
