Behold He comes quickly – Jeremiah 7-8

Comments 6 Standard

Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place.” “Behold, you trust in lying words that cannot profit. 
  and then come and stand before Me in this house which is called by My name, and say, ‘We are delivered to do all these abominations’?
I spoke to you, rising up early and speaking, but you did not hear, and I called you, but you did not answer. Do you not see what they do in the cities and in the streets? jer 7-17

  Do they provoke Me to anger?” says the Lord. “Do they not provoke themselves, to the shame of their own faces?” Therefore thus says the Lord God: “Behold, My anger and My fury will be poured out on this place—on man and on beast, on the trees of the field and on the fruit of the ground. And it will burn and not be quenched.”

Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be My people. And walk in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well with you.’  Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but followed the counsels and the dictates of their evil hearts, and went backward and not forward
        ‘This is a nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God nor receive correction. Truth has perished and has been cut off from their mouth.

“They have set their abominations in the house which is called by My name, to pollute it.   Then death shall be chosen rather than life by all the residue of those who remain of this evil family. Jer 7:19-8:3

‘Thus says the Lord:

Why has this people slidden back, in a perpetual backsliding?
They hold fast to deceit,They refuse to return.
I listened and heard, But they do not speak aright.
No man repented of his wickedness,
Saying, ‘What have I done?’
Everyone turned to his own course,
As the horse rushes into the battle.

“Even the stork in the heavens
Knows her appointed times;
And the turtledove, the swift, and the swallow
Observe the time of their coming.
But My people do not know the judgment of the Lord.

“How can you say, ‘We are wise,
And the law of the Lord is with us’?
Look, the false pen of the scribe certainly works falsehood.
The wise men are ashamed,
They are dismayed and taken.
Behold, they have rejected the word of the Lord;
So what wisdom do they have?

                                            Everyone is given to covetousness;
                                               From the prophet even to the priest
                                                         Everyone deals falsely.

Saying, ‘Peace, peace!’
When there is no peace.
12 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination?
No! They were not at all ashamed,
Nor did they know how to blush.
Therefore they shall fall among those who fall;
In the time of their punishment
They shall be cast down,” says the Lord.
13 
“I will surely consume them,” says the Lord.

               My heart is overwhelmed and saddened with the amount of false teaching that is rampant everywhere.  The only way to know right and wrong teaching is to stay in the Word of God. Don’t be led astray- don’t believe every word you hear. This is a warning – many think they are saved and think they are in good standing with the Lord because of the false words of many teachers.

  We must teach every man, in all wisdom and warn every man- for now is the time- that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.

          They hold fast to deceit,They refuse to return.
 I listened and heard, But they do not speak aright.
No man repented of his wickedness,
Saying, ‘What have I done?’
Everyone turned to his own course

Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. Col 2;8

   Is there oil in your lamp? Are you on the narrow path? Have you crucified your old life and accepted your new life in Christ? Have you checked your heart? Have you repented?  Have you been deceived to believe that a lukewarm existence will gain you entrance to God’s Holy Place?

             Today is the day to commit to your Salvation in Jesus Christ, step out of the World and it’s evil ways. For behold – The Lord comes quickly.

          Grace and Peace of the Lord God and His Son Jesus Christ be with you all.
