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
"Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein." Jeremiah 6:16 (KJB) In this 21st century it seems difficult at times to find … Continue reading Finding Rest for Your Soul
Sharing with you from 2015. To Lie and Deny “Go ye up upon her walls, and destroy; but make not a full end: take away her battlements; for they are not the LORD’S. For the house of Israel and the house of Judah have dealt very treacherously against Me, saith the LORD. They have belied … Continue reading The Truth is the Truth
It is my heart to believe that according to the writings of the prophets that the kingdoms of Judah and Israel have been one since their return from Babylonian captivity. For one I cannot think of a single time they are referred to as a divided people in the Gospels or all the New Testament. … Continue reading The Attention Jesus Will Receive
“They say to their mothers, Where is corn and wine? When they swooned as the wounded in the streets of the city, when their soul was poured out into their mothers’ bosom. What thing shall I take to witness for thee? What thing shall I liken to thee, O daughter of Jerusalem? What shall I … Continue reading The Promises of God: Negative and Positive
The people of God: Jacob and his descendants are never without the discipline [correction] of God. That correction shows, in fact, that they are the children of God. The same is true of those who are genuine Christians; those who have been regenerated through the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ the Son of … Continue reading I Will Not Leave You Wholly Unpunished
Your prophets have seen for you false and deceptive visions; they have not uncovered your iniquity, to bring back your captives, but have envisioned for you false prophecies and delusions. All who pass by clap their hands at you; they hiss and shake their heads at the daughter of Jerusalem: “Is this the city that … Continue reading When the Enemy Overpowers
"I am the man who has seen affliction by the rod of His wrath. He has led me and made me walk in darkness and not in light. Surely He has turned His hand against me time and time again throughout the day. He has aged my flesh and my skin, and broken my bones. … Continue reading The Anguish and Pain
