When the Enemy Overpowers

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

The Compassion of the LORD Never Fails

Jeremiah has been lamenting the tragedies of the conquering hordes of Babylon, the captivity of Judah, the fall of Jerusalem - including the temple and the wall of the City; the famine of the people which led to unspeakable acts in order for some to eat.  Yet, in the midst of his grief, and sorrow … Continue reading The Compassion of the LORD Never Fails

They cried unto them, Depart ye; it … Continue reading Sins of the Prophets, and the Priests
