Jeremiah 3

They say, If a man put away his wife, and she go from him, and become another man’s, shall he return unto her again? shall not that land be greatly polluted? but thou hast played the harlot with many lovers; yet return again to me, saith the Lord.

Lift up thine eyes unto the high places, and see where thou hast not been lien with. In the ways hast thou sat for them, as the Arabian in the wilderness; and thou hast polluted the land with thy whoredoms and with thy wickedness.

Therefore the showersave been withholden, and there hath been no latter rain; and thou hadst a whore’s forehead, thou refusedst to be ashamed.

Wilt thou not from this time cry unto me, My father, thou art the guide of my youth?

Will he reserve his anger for ever? will he keep it to the end? Behold, thou hast spoken and done evil things as thou couldest.

The Lord said also unto me in the days of Josiah the king, Hast thou seen that which backsliding Israel hath done? she is gone up upon every high mountain and under every green tree, and there hath played the harlot.

And I said after she had done all these things, Turn thou unto me. But she returned not. And her treacherous sister Judah saw it.

And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.

And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones and with stocks.

10 And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not turned unto me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith the Lord.

11 And the Lord said unto me, The backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah.

12 Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the Lord; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith the Lord, and I will not keep anger for ever.

13 Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the Lordthy God, and hast scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green tree, and ye have not obeyed my voice, saith the Lord.

14 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the Lord; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:

15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.

16 And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith the Lord, they shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of the Lord: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more.

17 At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the Lord; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the Lord, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart.

18 In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers.

19 But I said, How shall I put thee among the children, and give thee a pleasant land, a goodly heritage of the hosts of nations? and I said, Thou shalt call me, My father; and shalt not turn away from me.

20 Surely as a wife treacherously departeth from her husband, so have ye dealt treacherously with me, O house of Israel, saith the Lord.

21 A voice was heard upon the high places, weeping and supplications of the children of Israel: for they have perverted their way, and they have forgotten the Lord their God.

22 Return, ye backsliding children, and I will heal your backslidings. Behold, we come unto thee; for thou art the Lord our God.

23 Truly in vain is salvation hoped for from the hills, and from the multitude of mountains: truly in the Lord our God is the salvation of Israel.

24 For shame hath devoured the labour of our fathers from our youth; their flocks and their herds, their sons and their daughters.

25 We lie down in our shame, and our confusion covereth us: for we have sinned against the Lord our God, we and our fathers, from our youth even unto this day, and have not obeyed the voice of the Lord our God.

  1. 22 Return, ye backsliding children, and I will heal your backslidings. Behold, we come unto thee; for thou art the Lord our God.

    It doesn’t matter how far you think you’re from the Lord, Or how much you hurt. He is always faithful to his word he will heal your backsliding heart.

    1 John‬ ‭1:9‬
    “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

    ‭A.L.M.A.S.

  2. Jeremiah 3:13 NLT
    Only acknowledge your guilt. Admit that you rebelled against the Lord your God and committed adultery against him by worshiping idols under every green tree. Confess that you refused to listen to my voice. I, the Lord, have spoken!

    David was a man after Gods heart. Not because of His actions or sacrifices but because he was honest and truthful. Every time he sinned he admitted it and was truthful about it.
    The key to touching God heart is true repentance. When we acknowledge what we gave done and turn away from it then and only then will God operate in our lives.

  3. Thank you Jesus for today – there’s a challenge everyday

    “If a man divorces a woman and she goes and marries someone else, he will not take her back again, for that would surely corrupt the land. But you have prostituted yourself with many lovers, so why are you trying to come back to me?” says the Lord . “Look at the shrines on every hilltop. Is there any place you have not been defiled by your adultery with other gods? You sit like a prostitute beside the road waiting for a customer. You sit alone like a nomad in the desert. You have polluted the land with your prostitution and your wickedness. That’s why even the spring rains have failed. For you are a brazen prostitute and completely shameless.

  4. 14 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the Lord; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:

    15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.

    I thank God for pastor at the POFW!!! Very knowledgeable and understanding with the Word Of God!!
    Thank You Jesus!!

  5. 14 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the Lord; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:

    We serve a merciful God. The Lord is long suffering and is a God of second chances (many chances), and He does not want anyone to perish. Indeed, the lost that suffer the wrath of perdition had many opportunities to be saved.

  6. It is a sad thing to wander off and basically say “no thank” to God. It seems even worse when you see people trying to justify what they are doing to try and continue to please their flesh. I pray for a deeper and closer relationship with my Creator. I pray for revelation to come to each and every person of what the Lord is calling each and every one of us to do. 1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 AMP says “Do not quench [subdue, or be unresponsive to the working and guidance of] the [Holy] Spirit. Do not scorn or reject gifts of prophecy or prophecies [spoken revelations—words of instruction or exhortation or warning]. But test [a]all things carefully [so you can recognize what is good]. Hold firmly to that which is good. Abstain from every form of evil [withdraw and keep away from it].”

  7. Jeremiah 3

    22 Return, ye backsliding children, and I will heal your backslidings. Behold, we come unto thee; for thou art the Lord our God.

    Do we read that the God of Israel and Judah has given his grace to all the 12 tribes of the nation. He is pleading as he is pleading with us to come follow him. The heart of God is not in destruction but the gathering of those who choose him. Let us this day look up to the one who gives us help. Our help comes from the Lord. Choose this day who we shall serve and receive life. There is no life in the advisory but there is life in Jesus. Let our life today be full of life.

  8. 23. Truly in vain is salvation hoped for from The Hills, and from the multitude of mountains: truly in the Lord our God is the salvation of Israel.

    We love you and will do what we can for you, but only God can give you salvation
    😉

  9. Jeremiah 3: 13 ( amp) Only know, understand and acknowledge your inquity and guilt, that you have rebelled and transgressed against the Lord your God,and have scattered your favors among strangers under every green tree,and you have not obeyed My voice,says the Lord.
    This is a heart issue, and true repentance.
    Admit and Acknowledge your sin to the Lord and Truely Repent than God will forgive us.
    Just like David did , He was a man of God’s heart.
    God forgives us when we don’t deserve it, He loves us so much.
    Obeience is better than a sacrifice.
    Thank you Jesus.

  10. “My wayward children,” says the Lord, “come back to me, and I will heal your wayward hearts.” “Yes, we’re coming,” the people reply, “for you are the Lord our God.
    Jeremiah 3:22 NLT

    The book of Jeremiah is full of scriptures and testimonies of God sending out judgments and prophecies of the inevitable defeat Israel / Judah will face for their disobedience and idolatry but it all comes down to his desire for his people to return to him will remaining a righteous judge. All God has ever wanted is for his people to follow him and to remain faithful in the face of wickedness.

  11. There’s several places I would like to comment on verses here, but I am still caught up on last night’s service.
    I love the life God has blessed me with, but I cannot wait until we get to heaven where my physical body will no longer limit my worship. I am so intoxicated with His Good ness and love and mercy. I feel like praise and thanksgiving just needs to explode out of me and my body can’t keep up.

  12. 15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.
    Thank you Lord for providing a faithful shepherd after His own heart to lead and watch over your people.

  13. IWe’re here! We’ve come back to you.
    You’re our own true God!
    All that popular religion was a cheap lie,
    duped crowds buying up the latest in gods.
    We’re back! Back to our true God,
    the salvation of Israel.
    The Fraud picked us clean, swindled us
    of what our ancestors bequeathed us,
    Gypped us out of our inheritance—
    God-blessed flocks and God-given children.
    We made our bed and now lie in it,
    all tangled up in the dirty sheets of dishonor.
    All because we sinned against our God,
    we and our fathers and mothers.
    From the time we took our first steps, said our first words,
    we’ve been rebels, disobeying the voice of our God. I love POFW LIVE JESUS GIVE JESUS 2.

  14. Jeremiah 3:12-13 & 22-23 (NLT)
    12) Therefore, Go and give this message to Israel. This is what the LORD says: O Israel, my faithless people (backsliding people-kjv), come home (return-kjv) to me again, for I am Merciful. I will not be angry with you forever.
    13) Only acknowledge your guilt. Admit that you rebelled against the LORD your God and committed adultery against him by worshipping idols under every green tree. Confess that you refused to listen to my voice. I, the LORD, have spoken!

    22) My wayward children (backsliding children-kjv), says the LORD, come back (return-kjv) to me, and I will heal your wayward hearts. Yes, we’re coming, the people reply, for you are the LORD our God.
    23) Our worship of idols on the hills and our religious orgies on the mountains are a delusion. Only in the LORD our God will Israel ever find Salvation.

    The only way a faithless and backslidden person can Come Back – Return to the LORD is by true REPENTANCE. Acknowledging their sin before God – Admitting to and Confessing what they have done, and when they Acknowledge their sin and Admit to and Confess it, God will be MERCIFUL and turn away his anger and Forgive. 1 John 1:9 tells us, “If we Confess our sins, He is Faithful and Just to Forgive us our sins, and to Cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness.”
    Only in the LORD our GOD will anyone ever find SALVATION. So when His backslidden children Come Back – Return, He will HEAL and RESTORE them back into His Kingdom.

    Thank You JESUS! We are believing for Surprise Harvest – Backsliders Coming – Returning Home and being HEALED and RESTORED back into Your Kingdom!!

  15. A voice is heard on the barren heights, The weeping and pleading of the children of Israel, Because they have lost their way, They have [deliberately] forgotten the Lord their God. “Return, O faithless sons,” [says the Lord], “I will heal your unfaithfulness.” [They answer] “Behold, we come to You, For You are the Lord our God. Truly, [the hope of salvation from] the hill [where idols are worshiped] is a deception, A tumult and noisy multitude on the mountains; Truly in the Lord our God Is the salvation of Israel.
    Jeremiah 3:21‭-‬23 AMP
    https://bible.com/bible/1588/jer.3.21-23.AMP

    Sin is loud, it screams at you sometimes. I find myself searching for the still quiet voice. Salvation is something that is fought for and has great victory when its all said and done. But we are not alone in our battles.

  16. Cheating on your God.

    Just like it’s sinful for a man to “cheat” or to look at another woman and commit adultery. It’s the same way for us committing sin for worshiping another god rather then the Lord. We should be cast to hell immediately. We should be divorced and thrown to the side. But God and his grace allows us to be forgiven. Gif doesn’t work through the social norm that we know. That says once caught never forgiven. No he forgives us. And washes us clean if we come to pure repentance.

    • “Israel treated it all so lightly—she thought nothing of committing adultery by worshiping idols made of wood and stone. So now the land has been polluted.”
      ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭3:9‬ ‭NLT‬‬

  17. ““My wayward children,” says the Lord, “come back to me, and I will heal your wayward hearts.” “Yes, we’re coming,” the people reply, “for you are the Lord our God.”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭3:22‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    His arms are open wide for us to run to Him. He knows of the hurt we’ve caused, the mess we’ve made, the deception we believed. Yet He still tells us to come to Him. Thank You Jesus for being a good Father!

  18. ““If a man divorces a woman and she goes and marries someone else, he will not take her back again, for that would surely corrupt the land. But you have prostituted yourself with many lovers, so why are you trying to come back to me?” says the Lord. “Look at the shrines on every hilltop. Is there any place you have not been defiled by your adultery with other gods? You sit like a prostitute beside the road waiting for a customer. You sit alone like a nomad in the desert. You have polluted the land with your prostitution and your wickedness.”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭3:1-2‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Israel considered their idolatry and sacrifice to pagan gods to be of little consequence. Many of them probably told themselves that they were not forsaking the LORD, only adding the worship of these other gods. God saw their sin for what it was and noted that it polluted the land.

  19. 22 return ye backsliding children
    And I will heal your backsliding
    Behold, we come unto thee for thou art
    The Lord our God.
    —-
    What a merciful God.
    He says: return backsliding 👉🏼 Children.
    Yes, Children. No resentment, whatsoever…
    He is loving, he is merciful, he is patience
    Slow to anger great in mercy.
    He is not willin that anyone should perish
    But that everyone come to repentance.
    🙏.

  20. 14 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the Lord; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:

    15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.

    He heals as we turn our hearts to him. This promise is still for those today that have backslid and I believe we will see many come back home and live for God in these last days. I’m thankful for our Pastor and the men of God he brings to preach to us. We have been so blessed with the understanding and knowledge they impart to us!

  21. iLove the Kingdom of Jesus2
    Lift up thine eyes unto the high places, and see where thou hast not been lien with. In the ways hast thou sat for them, as the Arabian in the wilderness; and thou hast polluted the land with thy whoredoms and with thy wickedness.

    3 Therefore the showersave been withholden, and there hath been no latter rain; and thou hadst a whore’s forehead, thou refusedst to be ashamed.

    If we refuse to look to God, he will refuse us. There will not be rain upon our land and we will be dead and dry.

    • The reason why sin has to judged so strict is because if It is left unjudged, it will grow worse to each generation until there is no hope for the future

  22. LIVE – GIVE JESUS
    MY GOD SENT PASTOR

    15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.

    We learn here the plan of GOD for our Pastor. This verse indicates that JESUS our LORD will give us a Pastor. This verse dispels the idea that we have the option to choose from a Buffett of Pastors. GOD gives us, we don’t pick and choose.

    When we allow our Pastor to shepherd us according to GODs heart instead of our desire, will or opinion, we position ourselves to be VICTORIOUS, PROTECTED and FAVORED.

    I thank JESUS daily for MY GOD SENT PASTOR. I didn’t choose him GOD chose Rev. W S Fielding to be my Moses and lead me out of Egypt and then GOD chose Rev. Tom Foster to be my Joshua and lead me into the promised land of my future.

    Thank you JESUS!

  23. Jeremiah 3:15,19,22
    [15]And I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will guide you with knowledge and understanding.
    [19]“I thought to myself, ‘I would love to treat you as my own children!’ I wanted nothing more than to give you this beautiful land— the finest possession in the world. I looked forward to your calling me ‘Father,’ and I wanted you never to turn from me.
    [22]“My wayward children,” says the Lord, “come back to me, and I will heal your wayward hearts.”
    “Yes, we’re coming,” the people reply, “for you are the Lord our God.

    Oh how wonderful it is to be loved so much by a father that will teach, guide and heal us physically and emotionally. When we have sinned we are forgiven. Our father is so merciful and loves us so much. Thank you Jesus.

    Goodness of God
    I love You, Lord
    For Your mercy never fails me
    All my days, I’ve been held in Your hands
    From the moment that I wake up
    Until I lay my head
    Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God

    And all my life You have been faithful
    And all my life You have been so, so good
    With every breath that I am able
    Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God

    I love Your voice
    You have led me through the fire
    In the darkest night
    You are close like no other
    I’ve known You as a Father
    I’ve known You as a Friend
    And I have lived in the goodness of God (yeah)

    Good Good Father
    You’re a good, good Father
    It’s who You are, it’s who You are, it’s who You are
    And I’m loved by You
    It’s who I am, it’s who I am, it’s who I am

    Because You are perfect in all of Your ways
    You are perfect in all of Your ways
    You are perfect in all of Your ways to us
    You are perfect in all of Your ways
    Oh, You’re perfect in all of Your ways
    You are perfect in all of Your ways to us

    Oh, it’s love so undeniable
    I, I can hardly speak
    Peace so unexplainable
    I, I can hardly think
    As You call me deeper still
    As You call me deeper still
    As You call me deeper still into love, love, love

  24. 22 Return, ye backsliding children, and I will heal your backslidings. Behold, we come unto thee; for thou art the Lord our God.

    Repent. Repent

  25. “And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not turned unto me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith the Lord.”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭3:10‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    As we walk in the newness of Christ we must do it with all of our hearts. It can not be half hearted. We are to love the Lord with all our heart, soul and mind. He must be Lord of all areas of our lives.

  26. 12 Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the Lord; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith the Lord, and I will not keep anger for ever.
    13 Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the Lordthy God, and hast scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green tree, and ye have not obeyed my voice, saith the Lord.

    Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones you have crushed rejoice. Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity. Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me.

  27. Jeremiah 3:13
    Amplified
    ‘Only understand fully and acknowledge your wickedness and guilt,
    That you have rebelled (transgressed) against the Lord your God
    And have scattered your favors among strangers under every green tree,
    And you have not obeyed My voice,’ says the Lord.

    Oh how my heart aches at the fact there are those who have gone into sin amd will not even acknowledge it is sin. There are those who have turned to false teaching and will not acknowledge it .
    We truly must cling to the Word of God and the instruction of the God given shepherd over the flock .

    Verse 15 says And I will give you spiritual shepherds after My own heart (in the final time ) who will feed you knowledge and understanding and judgement .
    This world causes many to have poor judgement. It is truly time to adhere to God’s leaders and be truly obedient to the word of God . My husband never made any major decisions about anything until he had prayed and asked his pastor Warren Green what his thoughts were . Thankfully when he asked about marrying me Bro Green said yes. If we would truly understand that God has given knowledge and wisdom to the under shepherds that HE HAS PLACED
    to lead . If Israel would have kept their life in alignment with the Leader and the Word of God they would not have been called an adulterous nation.
    It is time we serve the Lord and leave all the other stuff along . Thank God for great leadership but ultimately we are the one who has to make the choice to follow.
    Judgement day is coming and we must truly be ready .

  28. 25 We lie down in our shame, and our confusion covereth us: for we have sinned against the Lord our God, we and our fathers, from our youth even unto this day, and have not obeyed the voice of the Lord our God.

    Repent!!! We must repent everyday!!! It’s not a one time deal, it’s everyday, because although we would like to think that we are ok in GOD’S sight I am sure that we do things (unawares) that are not pleasing to GOD and sometimes we forget the fear of the LORD and do things intentionally!!!

  29. 21 A voice was heard upon the high places, weeping and supplications of the children of Israel: for they have perverted their way, and they have forgotten the Lord their God.

    22 Return, ye backsliding children, and I will heal your backslidings. Behold, we come unto thee; for thou art the Lord our God.

    Even though we have sinned doesn’t mean that God has forgotten us or has left us. He is waiting for us to get on our knees and repent, to cry out to him. God is merciful and loving he lets us do what we want to our own accord so we come willingly to him and love him not by force but by our own choice. There is a point in life when enough is enough and it is time to come to God.

  30. 22“My wayward children,” says the Lord,
    “come back to me, and I will heal your wayward hearts.”

    The Lord will always take you back. There’s nothing greater than the Love of Jesus Christ. You and i have never experienced anything like this before and that’s one of the many things that makes this so precious and beautiful. Lets appreciate all that Jesus is doing in our lives today by sharing the gospel and all that hes doing

  31. Jeremiah 3:14,15 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the Lord, for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion: and I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.

    God is our rightful headship in our relationship with Him. He loves us and forgives us, He wants to restore us. Promise of Restoration to repentant people.

    Thank God for blessing me with a Pastor that leads in all righteousness.
    Acts 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
    Ephesians 4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

  32. AMP – 6 Moreover, the Lord said to me in the days of Josiah the king [of Judah], “Have you seen what that faithless Israel has done—how she went up on every high hill and under every green tree, and there she was a prostitute? 7 I thought, ‘After she has done all these things she will return to Me’; but she did not return, and her treacherous (faithless) sister Judah saw it. 8 And I saw [that even though Judah knew] that for all the acts of adultery (idolatry) of faithless Israel, I [the Lord] had [a]sent her away and given her a certificate of divorce, yet her treacherous sister [b]Judah was not afraid; but she went and was a prostitute also [following after idols]. 9 Because of the thoughtlessness of Israel’s prostitution [her immorality mattered little to her], she desecrated the land and committed adultery with [idols of] stones and trees. 10 Yet in spite of all this her treacherous sister Judah did not return to Me with her whole heart, but rather in [blatant] deception [she merely pretended obedience to King Josiah’s reforms],” declares the Lord.

    How many people are just going through the motions of being a christian? Living by rules and regulations and now relationship? It is so dangerous to just pretend to be in obedience – God says its spiritual adultery.

    Time is short. We must get our hearts right and build a relationship that will outlive any rule or regulations we have put in our lives.

  33. “Return home, you wayward children,” says the Lord, “for I am your master. I will bring you back to the land of Israel— one from this town and two from that family— from wherever you are scattered. And I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will guide you with knowledge and understanding.
    Jeremiah 3:14‭-‬15 NLT

    The Lord has truly spoken to us and we would be wise to keep that Word. Stay close to the man of God and tune out all other voices. God is leading and protecting us. We must continue to walk in unity, and continue to stay submitted to have dominion!

  34. “Return, ye backsliding children, and I will heal your backslidings. Behold, we come unto thee; for thou art the LORD our God.”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭3:22‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    The mercy of THE LORD JESUS CHRIST calls out to all. Not everyone can hear, not everyone can see the times that we are currently living in. We must learn to listen for the voice of GOD, when we hear, let us be obedient to HIS voice alone.

    “Long ago the Lord said to Israel: “I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself. Tears of joy will stream down their faces, and I will lead them home with great care. They will walk beside quiet streams and on smooth paths where they will not stumble. For I am Israel’s father, and Ephraim is my oldest child. But now this is what the Lord says: “Do not weep any longer, for I will reward you,” says the Lord. “Your children will come back to you from the distant land of the enemy. There is hope for your future,” says the Lord. “Your children will come again to their own land.”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭31:3, 9, 16-17‬ ‭NLT‬‬

  35. 8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.

    God likened Israel and Judah to two sisters. Judah saw Israel depart from God and commit spiritual adultery and saw the judgement of God fall on her. Yet Judah did not learn from the mistakes of her sister, Israel, and did the same abominations against God. Therefore Judah would receive the same punishment. We should learn from the mistakes of others and not fall into the same mistakes. The writings of the Bible are for ensamples to us that we might learn not to fall into the same sins and reap the same judgements. God loves us and wants to insure that we choose the right path, therefore he is standing near. willing and able to forgive us and guide us in the path of righteousness.

  36. 15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.

    God knows what he is doing. He will send you where he sees the best fit. Too many times we try to choose our own path instead of the path God wants us on. When we choose our own path with Godly intervention, we end up making more trouble for ourselves. Our God is a God of truth. He will not lead us astray or fail us. Trust in him and he will show you what must be done to make it through this earthly life.

  37. 15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.

    The Bible tells us that God’s people perish for lack of knowledge. There is a scripture that says how beautiful are the feet of those that bring the good news of the gospel. It should be that at the heart of every preached word of a pastor we should hear the heartbeat of God. To them that share the revelation, the knowledge and understanding of God’s way it is truly a blessing to have in our lives. For that is exactly the heartbeat of God for us to have knowledge and understanding of HIM. Without your man of God, pastor, in your life how then will you feed? Even when when you learn to eat on your own God will always give something to your pastor to feed you. That is his will. That is his way in the Kingdom. And the word of the King is law in the kingdom. Thus why we are taught to pray, thy kingdom come thy will be done.

  38. 12 Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the Lord; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith the Lord, and I will not keep anger for ever.

    My prayer everyday for the family members that I proclaim to see again in church. Not only at church, but in church!! There is a difference. Lord, I pray they return. He is a great Hod and his anger does not linger or last long term, just as in parenting. Discipline helps teach us.

    15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.

    God put your Pastor in your life to feed you what you need spiritually. Know him and familiarize yourself with him! Your Pastor is not against you, but rather he is a voice of authority put in your life by God. He is given the knowledge and understand to listen and instruct us as well.

  39. 15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.

    God has placed a pastor to watch over us. He is the man of God that we should always listen to and obey. Our pastor had authority over us and can direct us in the right path! We must always listen to him for he knows best no matter what. You have to be willing to sacrifice your own feelings and thoughts if they are going against the man of God’s word because it is not right. I pray tonight that you are listening to what is said over pulpit for they are given instructions to follow by!!!

  40. “And I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will guide you with knowledge and understanding.”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭3:15‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    We need to start focusing on the path that God has for us, he created us with a purpose and the only way to unleash that is for us to follow him and live for him faithfully and full heartedly. God will never take us on a path with trials he know we can’t defeat, everything he has us go through is for us purpose and to make us stronger. I pray no matter what we still continue to grow our faith in God, for he is our one true God and our protector.

  41. 15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.

    I’m so thankful for my Pastor! God knew exactly what I needed when he sent me to POFW!

  42. ““Return, faithless people; I will cure you of backsliding.” “Yes, we will come to you, for you are the Lord our God.”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭3:22‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    It doesn’t matter what bad you have done nor does it matter how far you are away from your relationship with good. When you come with a true repentant heart he will forgive you. He loves you no matter what. He will accept you back but you have to want to come back. You have to want to turn away from the sin and the things that you have out before him. God is an all forgiving god but we just have to be of a true repentant heart.

  43. “Only acknowledge your guilt. Admit that you rebelled against the Lord your God and committed adultery against him by worshiping idols under every green tree. Confess that you refused to listen to my voice. I, the Lord, have spoken!”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭3:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Jesus is a merciful God He will forgive us if we will repent, and not turn back to the ways which God Has delivered us from. Lets allow the voice of God to be first in our life, and give Jesus all the praise and honor for He been better than good to us.

  44. “Yet you say to me, ‘Father, you have been my guide since my youth. Surely you won’t be angry forever! Surely you can forget about it!’ So you talk, but you keep on doing all the evil you can.””
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭3:4-5‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Hmm hmmm… Always looking for forgiveness but never willing to commit. 🤷🏽‍♀️

  45. 1 They say, If a man put away his wife, and she go from him, and become another man’s, shall he return unto her again? shall not that land be greatly polluted? but thou hast played the harlot with many lovers; yet return again to me, saith the Lord.

    We have to be purposeful about what we do. We must stay mindful too, that we not mindlessly become a harlot returning to her lover, upon returning from another…

  46. 14 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the Lord; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:

    15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.

    God loves us so much that he gives us so
    many opportunities to stop rebellion and stop sin. It’s evident that he won’t stop until we turn away from sin and live a righteous life.

  47. 10 And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not turned unto me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith the Lord.

    Repentance is a matter of the heart and mind. If a person is not whole hearted in their repentance then it’s not real. God is seeking our whole heart to be sincere and devoted unto him like a husband would. He sees His people as all the tribes of Israel, however divided in kingdoms they may be. Here the kingdoms are compared as sisters but both belonging to Him. He didn’t call them to be divided nor did He desire them to be backsliders. They turned away from Him unto false gods and yet He willing to accept them back if they repent. They must turn away from their wicked adultery/idolatry and serve their first love the Lord. He is a jealous God as a husband would be and merciful enough to withhold his anger and wrath if she comes back. Some times it takes us looking back to how God lead us and blessed us throughout our history to return to Him with all their heart. This is Israel/Judah’s wake up call before it’s too late.

  48. 12 Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the Lord; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith the Lord, and I will not keep anger for ever.

    Thank God for having mercy on us for once we were lost and now we’re found, we were blind but now we see. Jesus have mercy on our city and find the lost, so they can see.

  49. 7 And I said after she had done all these things, Turn thou unto me. But she returned not. And her treacherous sister Judah saw it.

    8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.

    When we see unfaithfulness as backsliding we may see less people commit to being so stubborn and give in to it. It’s our responsibility to teach this principle to young Christians. We have to to be faithful in all things at al time and when your not that means your not as strong in that area and you have to work harder at keeping it up.

    Doing this and teaching this with love and Grace will help build a foundation of life long happiness and stability in the kingdom.
