Jeremiah

Jeremiah 13

Having said that Judah would come under this judgment of Jehovah, in Jeremiah 13 symbolic action is introduced; that is, a sign to show what is coming. "Go and get thee a linen girdle, and put it upon thy loins, and put it not in water. So I got a girdle according to the word of the Lord, and put it on my loins. And the word of Jehovah came unto me the second time saying, Take the girdle that thou hast got, which is upon thy loins, and arise, go to Euphrates, and hide it there in a hole of t...

Jeremiah 12

And then in Jeremiah 12, Jeremiah says "Righteous art thou, O Jehovah, when I plead with Thee: yet let me talk with Thee of Thy judgments: Wherefore doth the way of the wicked prosper? wherefore are all they happy that deal very treacherously? Thou hast planted them, yea, they have taken root: they grow, yea, they bring forth fruit: Thou art near in their mouth, and far from their reins. But Thou, O Jehovah, knowest me: Thou hast seen me, and tried mine heart toward Thee: pull them out like ...

Jeremiah 11

We come now to Jeremiah 11, and there we find a new and very solemn warning to the men of Judah and Jerusalem. As a rule, in all the prophets of Israel progress may be observed in their messages; there is increasing depth in the appeals of the Spirit of God to the people. Here, then, we have "Cursed be the man that obeyeth not the words of this covenant, which I commanded your fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, Obey My voice,...

Jeremiah

 Introduction The Book of the Prophet Jeremiah has a different character from that of Isaiah. It does not contain the same development of the counsels of God respecting this earth that Isaiah does. It is we, that we are told many things in it concerning the nations; but it is principally composed of testimony addressed immediately to the conscience of the people, on the subject of their moral condition at the time the prophet speaks, and with an eye to the judgment with which they we...

Google - Jeremiah 29:13

"And ye shall seek me and find me, when ye search for me with all your heart." Jer. 29:13 Find God. The goal in life is to find God, not once, but every day. We are born lost. We are all born outside the garden. It is our job to find our way back home. Sad are those who are satisfied with where they are. The truth is, as long as we are in this world, we are not home yet. Now I am not talking about heaven. I am not talking about the "sweet bye and bye" sung about by those who think they fo...

Lecture 5 - The Books of the Prophets

We are now to take up the books of the prophets, the third division of the Old Testament, and that in which we are most of all brought face to face with God Himself. The vail is of course not yet removed; yet as more and more the condition of the people was discovered hopeless, and even as judgment more and more, stroke upon stroke, fell upon them, to faith God began to speak with increasing plainness. That the just shall live by faith was witnessed by a prophet, and how full...

The Church Age

Excerpt from The Church Truth Series Many Christians do not understand where the Church fits in God’s time table. Many confuse the New Testament Church with the nation of Israel in the Old Testament. As a result many bring Old Testament law and principles into the New Testament Church. This leads to great confusion and error. It is very important that we see the clear distinction between the Church and Israel. The Bible clearly teaches us that the New Testament C...

Conversion

Conversion, as the word is used in the Scriptures, means— “a turning to God.” Regeneration is a change of nature; the implanting of a new and heavenly life within. Conversion is the outward and manifest turning of the person to God, and as a consequence, from sin and Satan. In every case of genuine conversion, there is a positive and a negative side: the man is turned round to God, to Christ, to holiness; he is turned from the world, from Satan, and from sin. The Necessity of ...
