The Grace of GOD is Greater Far…

My reading of Scripture today was Ezekiel 15 - 16.  Chapter 16 describes the sins of Judah and Israel, and why God judged them, the sins of Sodom and their judgment (16:49-50).  We can see clearly that God does not tolerate sin.  Sin is what God calls sin; it does not matter at all what … Continue reading The Grace of GOD is Greater Far…

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.

The Teaching of Rebellion

Jeremiah did not enjoy preaching the message which God gave him to preach.  He loved the people, the priests (they were members of his own family), the princes, and the kings.  He loved the temple and what it represented.  Most of all Jeremiah loved God and His commandments.

"For he clave to the LORD, and departed not from following Him, but kept His commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses." 2 Kings 18:6 (KJB) Old, outdated, and antiquated are words we might hear from some older people about the Bible.  We would probably hear it … Continue reading Old, Outdated, Antiquated???

“And he set captains of war over the people, and gathered them together to him in the street of the gate of the city, and spake comfortably to them, saying, Be strong and courageous, be not afraid nor dismayed for the king of Assyria, nor for all the multitude that is with him: for there … Continue reading The LORD Our God is With Us to Help Us

No Iniquity Found

Do you find yourself to be a sinner?  Have you sinned against God?  There are some who would answer "No" to both of those questions.  Sadly, though, there is no salvation for such a person.  It is possible however for one to experience deliverance from iniquity, forgiveness of sin.  Hear the prophet Jeremiah speak the … Continue reading No Iniquity Found

Judgment of Nations

“Flee, save your lives! And be like the juniper in the wilderness. For because you have trusted in your works and your treasures, you also shall be taken. And Chemosh shall go forth into captivity, his priests and his princes together. And the plunderer shall come against every city; no one shall escape. The valley … Continue reading Judgment of Nations
