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 …

All the People Heard

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, …

Come Out, Be Separate

Yokes are a farming tool from years past where the farmer or wagoneer even would place two animals; for a yoke, it would most generally have been oxen.  The cart, wagon, or plow was usually teamed with an equally powered pair of the animals.  Consider this as we look at the following passage of Scripture. …

The LORD Has Spoken this Word

"Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof. And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so …
