Jeremiah 6:8-30

Passage: Jeremiah 6:8-30
Service Type:

Bible Text: Jeremiah 6:8-30 | Preacher: Pastor Gene Eberhardy |      Last Sunday the LORD spoke to us from Jeremiah 6.  He showed us His mercy for His people as He pointed out His love.  He plead with His people in verses 8, 10, 16, 17 and 26 warning them of the coming disaster and calamity to come upon their nation because they had turned away from worshiping Him and following His Laws.  They followed their evil desires, the life of the baal gods of the heathens around them.
     Next, He showed us the response of His people to His mercy and His pleading, verses 10, 16, 17 and 19.  He said His people had uncircumcised ears meaning that the ears were covered over with the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and pride of life.  They did not want to hear His Word.  He said to His people His Word was a “reproach” to them.  It was revolting to them.  The LORD spoke to us that it is the same way today.  His people love the words of men but not His Words.  He said it is evident that His people spend more time in FaceBook than in His book, more time in front of the TV than in the study of His Word, more time listening to the words of men than to the Words of the Spirit of God and life.  When most Christians think of Bible study it is like a student in school it is a labor and not a love.
     The LORD cries, “My Word is Life and health to all your flesh Proverbs 4:20-22.  Only those that CONTINUE in His Word shall know the truth of the many things that will come before one each day.  There is nothing that will catch Him off guard or deceive God.  His children are to trust the LORD’s Word and not lean or trust in their own understanding.  Yet with a growing magnitude so many that call themselves Christian don’t read their Bibles and study His Word.  They study and know the words of men.  Let’s be honest it is SOOOOOOO true, isn’t it?
     This is the LORD crying to us now just as He did to Israel.  We need to know, they did not listen to Jeremiah and Babylon and Nebuchadnezzar came, destroyed their temple and city and carried away most of the population to be slaves.  The LORD cries that this will happen to us in America.   The catastrophe of Obama Care is seen on the horizon.  The army of antichrist is now rolling across the nation as the most unspeakable things are being made acceptable such as abortion and gay marriage.
     This antichrist army is made up of people who do not believe in God and Christ Jesus or believe in them but do not know or believe His Word.  They follow the words of man which seem right but the ends of them are death.  They, as the army of Joel 2, are rolling right over the courts of the land.  They are destroying the laws, the cords and bands of God’s morality, Psalm 2, of this once great and beautiful nation making that which was right wrong and that which is wrong right.  All this is happening because the Church, the Christians, that were to know the Words of God and follow them are like Israel, having a form of religion but denying the power of the religion, the Word of God.
     The LORD wants you to know so when this that is coming, you will know why, it is not on Him it is on us.
