The Power of The Potter

"The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, ‘Arise, and go down to the potter's house, and there I will cause thee to hear My words.’ Then I went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in …

My Hope In The Evil Day

"Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the …

The Sovereign Hand 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 …

The Life of Two Kings

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 …

The Words of the King

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 …

Whose Words Shall Stand?

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 …

When God’s Word is Fulfilled

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 …

The Word From the LORD

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 …
