Jeremiah 7

1The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,

Stand in the gate of the Lord’s house, and proclaim there this word, and say, Hear the word of the Lord, all ye of Judah, that enter in at these gates to worship the Lord.

Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place.

Trust ye not in lying words, saying, The temple of the Lord, The temple of the Lord, The temple of the Lord, are these.

For if ye throughly amend your ways and your doings; if ye throughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbour;

If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt:

Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever.

Behold, ye trust in lying words, that cannot profit.

Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal, and walk after other gods whom ye know not;

10 And come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, We are delivered to do all these abominations?

11 Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it, saith the Lord.

12 But go ye now unto my place which was in Shiloh, where I set my name at the first, and see what I did to it for the wickedness of my people Israel.

13 And now, because ye have done all these works, saith the Lord, and I spake unto you, rising up early and speaking, but ye heard not; and I called you, but ye answered not;

14 Therefore will I do unto this house, which is called by my name, wherein ye trust, and unto the place which I gave to you and to your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh.

15 And I will cast you out of my sight, as I have cast out all your brethren, even the whole seed of Ephraim.

16 Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up cry nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to me: for I will not hear thee.

17 Seest thou not what they do in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem?

18 The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.

19 Do they provoke me to anger? saith the Lord: do they not provoke themselves to the confusion of their own faces?

20 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold, mine anger and my fury shall be poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn, and shall not be quenched.

21 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Put your burnt offerings unto your sacrifices, and eat flesh.

22 For I spake not unto your fathers, nor commanded them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices:

23 But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.

24 But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.

25 Since the day that your fathers came forth out of the land of Egypt unto this day I have even sent unto you all my servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending them:

26 Yet they hearkened not unto me, nor inclined their ear, but hardened their neck: they did worse than their fathers.

27 Therefore thou shalt speak all these words unto them; but they will not hearken to thee: thou shalt also call unto them; but they will not answer thee.

28 But thou shalt say unto them, This is a nation that obeyeth not the voice of the Lord their God, nor receiveth correction: truth is perished, and is cut off from their mouth.

29 Cut off thine hair, O Jerusalem, and cast it away, and take up a lamentation on high places; for the Lord hath rejected and forsaken the generation of his wrath.

30 For the children of Judah have done evil in my sight, saith the Lord: they have set their abominations in the house which is called by my name, to pollute it.

31 And they have built the high places of Tophet, which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my heart.

32 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that it shall no more be called Tophet, nor the valley of the son of Hinnom, but the valley of slaughter: for they shall bury in Tophet, till there be no place.

33 And the carcases of this people shall be meat for the fowls of the heaven, and for the beasts of the earth; and none shall fray them away.

34 Then will I cause to cease from the cities of Judah, and from the streets of Jerusalem, the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride: for the land shall be desolate.

48 thoughts on “Jeremiah Chapter 7 – Chronological

  1. 19 Do they provoke me to anger? saith the Lord: do they not provoke themselves to the confusion of their own faces?

    Sin may feel right, good or even make us happy in the moment. We want to think that it is just a phase or it will go away in due time, but no!!! When we seek to do our will, we are actually hurting ourselves in the long run!!!

  2. 5 For if ye throughly amend your ways and your doings; if ye throughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbour;

    6 If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt:

    7 Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever.

    8 Behold, ye trust in lying words, that cannot profit.

    9 Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal, and walk after other gods whom ye know not;

    10 And come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, We are delivered to do all these abominations?

    11 Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it, saith the Lord.

    12 But go ye now unto my place which was in Shiloh, where I set my name at the first, and see what I did to it for the wickedness of my people Israel.

    13 And now, because ye have done all these works, saith the Lord, and I spake unto you, rising up early and speaking, but ye heard not; and I called you, but ye answered not;

    14 Therefore will I do unto this house, which is called by my name, wherein ye trust, and unto the place which I gave to you and to your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh.

    15 And I will cast you out of my sight, as I have cast out all your brethren, even the whole seed of Ephraim.

    Their true safety lay in thoroughly turning from sin and living righteously. They thought they could get away with their sins as long as they came to the temple and said we are delivered, our Alford himself whose views of outward religion were like Jeremiah’s used the prophet’s words in verse 11 about the temple being a den of thieves when He cleansed His Father’s house, Matt. 21:13
    Like 19:46. Because Judah had polluted and desecrated the temple, it would be destroyed most as the sanctuary in Shiloh had been.

    A.L.M.A.S.

  3. 23 But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.

    Thank You Jesus!!

  4. Jeremiah 7
    24-26 “‘But do you think they listened? Not a word of it. They did just what they wanted to do, indulged any and every evil whim and got worse day by day. From the time your ancestors left the land of Egypt until now, I’ve supplied a steady stream of my servants the prophets, but do you think the people listened? Not once. Stubborn as mules and worse than their ancestors!’

    Mark 1:15
    Berean Study Bible
    “The time is fulfilled,” He said, “and the kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe in the gospel!”

    Time is truly running out . What will it take for this world to know Jesus is going to pour out His wrath upon this world with its sin.

  5. 3 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place.

    When I led your ancestors out of Egypt, it was not burnt offerings and sacrifices I wanted from them. This is what I told them: ‘Obey me, and I will be your God, and you will be my people. Do everything as I say, and all will be well!’
    Jeremiah 7:22‭-‬23 NLT

    Following God does not have to be this incredulous journey that is always difficult. Being a Christian doesn’t automatically mean that life has to be hard and that you have to always be critical of yourself, God has one purpose for every man and that is to have a personal relationship with him. What we do for him is just a bonus and it’s a way of worship, God just wants relationship. He wants our honesty and our obedience. That doesn’t mean it’s always easy it just means that it’s not as hard as we make it

  6. Verses 3-11 ERV “The Lord All-Powerful, the God of Israel, says: Change your lives and do good things. If you do this, I will let you live in this place.[a] Don’t trust the lies that some people say. They say, “This is the Temple of the Lord, the Temple of the Lord, the Temple of the Lord![b]” If you change your lives and do good things, I will let you live in this place. You must be fair to each other. You must be fair to strangers. You must help widows and orphans. Don’t kill innocent people! And don’t follow other gods, because they will only ruin your lives. If you obey me, I will let you live in this place. I gave this land to your ancestors for them to keep forever. “‘But you are trusting lies that are worthless. Will you steal and murder? Will you commit adultery? Will you falsely accuse other people? Will you worship the false god Baal and follow other gods that you have not known? If you commit these sins, do you think that you can stand before me in this house that is called by my name? Do you think you can stand before me and say, “We are safe,” just so you can do all these terrible things? This Temple is called by my name. Is this Temple nothing more to you than a hideout for robbers? I have been watching you.’” This message is from the Lord.” We have to choose to change our lives and do good things, we have to choose to obey, we have to choose to be faithful and choose not to sin as God is watching us as we choose to LIVE-GIVE JESUS².

  7. Jeremiah 7: 23-24 ( amp ) But this thing I did command them, Listen to and obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be My people; and walk in the way that I command you, that it may be well with you.
    (24) But they would not listen and obey , or bend their ear to Me, but followed the counsels and the stubborn promptings of their own evil hearts and minds, and they turned their back and went in reverse of forward.
    Obeience is better than a sacrifice.
    Read our word daily!
    Crucify our flesh daily!
    Walk with in!
    Think positive not negative things!
    Guard our hearts and minds!
    Pray in the Holy Ghost!
    Pray before speaking !
    In Jesus name.

  8. Jeremiah 7:21‭-‬23 NLT
    This is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, the God of Israel, says: “Take your burnt offerings and your other sacrifices and eat them yourselves! When I led your ancestors out of Egypt, it was not burnt offerings and sacrifices I wanted from them. This is what I told them: ‘Obey me, and I will be your God, and you will be my people. Do everything as I say, and all will be well!’

    We can give all we want. We can serve in church till we are blue in the face. We can sacrifice our time and treasure but if there us not obedience to His Word it is for nothing.
    Obedience is the key to have a blessed life. When we obey Him and seek Him everything else is added to our lives.
    Obedience is greater than sacrifice.

    Matthew 6:‬33 KJV
    But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

  9. 3 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place.

    We serve a God of mercy. All we have to do is follow Him, and if we mess up, rewind and try again. Thank You Jesus for mercy!

  10. Obedece a los mandatos de DIOS y todo nos sera en favor, pero aveces nos ponemos a pensar esto se siente bien si el pecado se puede sentir bien pero esto es como una infeccion a punto de estallar primero no sentimos nada despues es un dolor agudo e intenso hasta que es hora de romper la piel y expulsar todo lo podrido que daremos mejor y luego aunado a la medicina( palabra de DIOS) todo sanara y sera como si nada, gracias senor JESUS.

  11. I love POFW live Jesus give Jesus 2! Be strong in the Lord and he will direct your paths. Obedience to the Lord is the only way. I love my church and I love my pastor and his wife.

  12. 9-10 NLT “Do you really think you can steal, murder, commit adultery, lie, and burn incense to Baal and all those other new gods of yours, and then come here and stand before me in my Temple and chant, “We are safe!”—only to go right back to all those evils again?
    Romans 6:16 NLT “Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living.”
    16 “Pray no more for these people, Jeremiah. Do not weep or pray for them, and don’t beg me to help them, for I will not listen to you.”
    What a dark and lonely place to be when God turns his back on you. Life or death, It comes down to the choices you make.

  13. 1 stand in the gate of the lord house and proclaim there this word and say hear the word of the Lord all ye of Judah that enter in at these gates to worship the Lord.
    —-
    Wow, stand at the gates…
    But stand in the gate, let them hear these words before
    They stepped in….
    Wonder how many went in and how many return.
    How many actually heard it and acted on it.
    Again, the Lord wants to save .
    He is talking to his people, he wants us to get it together.
    Whatever it’s hindering us this time , this season of our lives.
    I need to make it right.
    See? He said, stand in the gate, and proclaim.
    Because he is a good and merciful God.
    He is doing this, because he cares and loves his people.
    🙏
    Hallelujah 🙌
    Blessed be the name of the Lord.

    Thank you Lord for your mercy.

  14. 8 Behold, ye trust in lying words, that cannot profit.
    9 Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal, and walk after other gods whom ye know not;
    10 And come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, We are delivered to do all these abominations?
    11 Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it, saith the Lord.

    Trust in the Lord always for he is the truth the way in the life that we live. There is not anything that he can not do when we trust in him and wait on him.

  15. Say to them, ‘This is the nation whose people will not obey the Lord their God and who refuse to be taught. Truth has vanished from among them; it is no longer heard on their lips.
    Jeremiah 7:28 NLT

    https://bible.com/bible/116/jer.7.28.NLT

    You can only help someone so much who doesn’t want to be taught and is stuck in their wys. I’ve been told you’re either growing or dying. If you’re not improving you’re declining. There is no stagnation. This is my God is always speaking, pressing, loving. He loves us where we’re at but loves us too much to let us stay there.

  16. Jeremiah 7:3 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings and I will cause you to dwell in this place.

    Isaiah 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

    He is a merciful God!

  17. 23 But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.

    This is for us today just as it was for Israel from their prophet. As the world becomes more evil and more distracting, it is the word of God in our hearts and minds that will lead and guide us.

  18. Jeremiah 7:9-10
    [9]Do you really think you can steal, murder, commit adultery, lie, and burn incense to Baal and all those other new gods of yours,
    [10]and then come here and stand before me in my Temple and chant, “We are safe!”—only to go right back to all those evils again?

    You can’t serve 2 Gods- God and flesh.

    • This world offers many paths. Many are short, many are winding, but they are all limited to this world. The Lord’s way is not of this world, because He is beyond this world, and greater than it. Although we live on the earth, Jesus has made it possible to walk in the truth that is God’s way. It is truly a blessing to walk with God.

      Almighty God, I will walk in Your footsteps. I have known the paths of the world and they are but folly. I will only walk with You. I thank you for Your son Jesus who walked this earth and showed the world Your way, and I thank you for Your truth. I will learn Your commands and be better each day, for it is only Your way I pursue. Amen.

  19. 16 Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up cry nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to me: for I will not hear thee.

    The Lord wants everyone to be saved but sometimes people have rejected the Lord’s will, even though they have a form of religiousness. Thusly in that situation the Lord’s patience will run out and He will not hear pleas of prayer for thoes in rebellion.

  20. “But I will be merciful only if you stop your evil thoughts and deeds and start treating each other with justice; only if you stop exploiting foreigners, orphans, and widows; only if you stop your murdering; and only if you stop harming yourselves by worshiping idols. Then I will let you stay in this land that I gave to your ancestors to keep forever.”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭7:5-7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    We notice that of these four aspects of demonstrated repentance, only one of them deals with a man’s relationship with God; three of the four deal with man’s relationship to his fellow man. God cares about how we treat one another, and true repentance will extend into the way we treat each other.

  21. iLove the Kingdom of Jesus2
    What does the Lord really require anyway? 3 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place.

    According to this any many other scriptures, the only thing God really requires is for us to repent. Now while this sounds easy, true repentance isn’t as easy for most. True repentance requires us to destroy the idols in our lives. These idols are “familiar spirits” and most folk don’t know how they will live without these idols

  22. LIVE – GIVE JESUS2
    A CALL TO REPENTANCE

    2 Stand in the gate of the Lord’s house, and proclaim there this word, and say, Hear the word of the Lord, all ye of Judah, that enter in at these gates to worship the Lord.
    3 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place.
    4 Trust ye not in lying words, saying, The temple of the Lord, The temple of the Lord, The temple of the Lord, are these.

    There seems to be a reoccurring principal in the land today. The LORD speaks to and through the prophet to address the attitude and spirit of apathy. The people seemed to believe that going to the Temple was enough to save them and keep them right with GOD.

    BUT

    JESUS spoke through HIS watchmen, the prophet Jeremiah to the people of GOD as a TRUMPET to not be deceived into believing the lie; that just coming to the Temple was all JESUS executed of them.

    The LORD identified some areas of commitment in serving and ministering or The MISSION of the Temple (Church). Lets be intentional today about Impacting Lives to Change the World at The POFW.

  23. Jeremiah 7:23-24
    23) But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.
    24) But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.

    Which direction am I or you going? Backward or Forward?
    Obey God’s voice and Walk in ALL His ways, and you will go Forward.
    BUT
    Hearken not, nor incline your ear, and Walk in your own counsels and imagination of your evil heart, and you will go Backward.

    Seems like the choice would be easy to make, BUT we have to make the choice everyday to do God’s Will or Our Will.
    The sad thing is most people would rather choice Their Will over God’s Will for their life. Then they wonder why their life is going Backward instead of Forward.

    Choose You This Day Whom Ye Will Serve!

  24. 23 But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.

    24 But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.

    God calls to us over and over, but you don’t listen nor hear him because you have drifted away from what God has in stored for you.

  25. 13 And now, because ye have done all these works, saith the Lord, and I spake unto you, rising up early and speaking, but ye heard not; and I called you, but ye answered not;

    The Lord wants us to serve in His Kingdom, but He does not want the service to become the relationship. He wants the fellowship with Him to be the relationship. Fellowship in the word, with the Word and fellowship in Prayer.

    If these two things in our lives our missing, then we are only doing works, which won’t save anyone.

  26. “but this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭7:23‬ ‭KJV

    Raro la cosa que hay multitudes de gente que dicen Dios nunca me bendice, ni a mi familia.
    Desean y quieren los bendiciones de Dios, pero no ser obediente. Aquí el señor Jehová quiere bendecir a su gente, Pero no los que sean rebeldes. Su nombre es Dios todo Poderoso el Salva y perdona.

    “Y con otras muchas palabras testificaba y les exhortaba diciendo: —¡Sean salvos de esta perversa generación!”
    ‭‭Hechos‬ ‭2:40‬ ‭RVA2015‬‬

  27. 3 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place.

    God is saying that if you will turn to me and obey me, and if you will treat your neighbor right, I will allow you to remain in the land of Judah. This reminds me of the scripture in the New Testament: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets (Matthew 22:34-40).

  28. Thank you God for always keeping everyone around me safe I pray that you may please banish all these lingering spirits trying to prevent us from being in the land of Judah.

  29. 23 But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.

    We cannot walk in any other way and be right. We must walk in the way of the Lord. When we walk in God’s way, we receive strength. Take heed to the word of the Lord and he will direct your path. God is good in all he does.

  30. Jeremiah 7

    10 and then come and stand before me in this house which bears my Name, and say, “We are safe”- safe to do all these detestable things?

    Entering the temple of God in such a manner, while worshiping other gods is detestable! The people also felt safe to perform perverted acts. This was such severe negative actions. Wow, I can’t imagine how God must have felt. We love God and must make sure this type of behavior never happens with us.
    Thank you for this day Jesus

  31. 11 Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it, saith the Lord.

    It angers God when people take the holy place and things of God and defile them. He seeks a obedient people not those that seek their own ways and hearts desires. Stubbornness will lead us in the wrong direction but repentance will lead ups to him.

  32. “Don’t you yourselves admit that this Temple, which bears my name, has become a den of thieves? Surely I see all the evil going on there. I, the Lord, have spoken!”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭7:11‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    God seeks those who are truthful and obedient. He sees all that we do so why are we going to try and hide our mistakes from him? It is better to confess our mistakes and ask for forgiveness than try and hide it from him, God has been honest with us and we have to as well. I pray tonight that we start being truthful unto the Lord and go into repentance unto him. For God will honor those who are truthful and obedient.

  33. 11 Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it, saith the Lord.

    We must always be truthful and kind. In your house you should be honest and good. I pray tonight that you are always going the right thing and telling the truth no matter what.

  34. “While you were doing these wicked things, says the Lord, I spoke to you about it repeatedly, but you would not listen. I called out to you, but you refused to answer.”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭7:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    God Grace is sufficient and He reaches out to everyone to return back to Christ Jesus. Don’t be ignorant to word of God for there’s a day coming Jesus will return don’t let a day pass by without being right with Jesus. Follow after Jesus seek first the Kingdom of God and all things shall be add unto you.

  35. Jeremiah Chapter 7

    1The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,

    2 Stand in the gate of the Lord’s house, and proclaim there this word, and say, Hear the word of the Lord, all ye of Judah, that enter in at these gates to worship the Lord.

    3 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place.

    Who is speaking? Who is listening? What is the message?

    1. Who is speaking the Lord (Jesus) For He is Lord of all. J Acts 10:36 The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:)

    2. Who is listening? Jeremiah the Prophet. Jeremiah 7:1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,

    3. What is the message that is being given? The message that is given is for the people of Judah. The message goes as spoken to Jeremiah that he may declare to the nation of Judah. The message is as follows:
    Jeremiah 1.7:3 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place.
    2. For if ye throughly amend your ways and your doings; if ye throughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbour;
    3. Jeremiah 7:4 Trust ye not in lying words, saying, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, are these.
    4. Jeremiah 7:5 For if ye throughly amend your ways and your doings; if ye throughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbour;
    5. Jeremiah 7:6 If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt:
    6. Jeremiah 7:7 Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever
    7. If your disobedient what happens? Jeremiah 7:34 Then will I cause to cease from the cities of Judah, and from the streets of Jerusalem, the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride: for the land shall be desolate.

    God does not play with the disobedient even though he uses His Mercy and Grace. He does not wink at deliberate sin that we know of. That is why he asks us to repent and turn our backs to sin.

  36. “but I gave them this command: Obey me, and I will be your God and you will be my people. Walk in obedience to all I command you, that it may go well with you.”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭7:23‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    Doing what god commands us to do will always have the best benefits. If we follow his word and stay in line we won’t have to worry about. Walking in obedience and in his will is all we have to do. We can’t choose to be in one day and out the other. We just make up in our kind that no matter what we are going to walk in obedience no matter what comes our way.

  37. 5 For if ye throughly amend your ways and your doings; if ye throughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbour;

    6 If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt:

    7 Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever.

    We know that the Lord Jesus is King of the world and the universe. All things submit and were created for him and by him. His words are law. His commandments are his law. Sometimes we people complicate it more than it is. God doesn’t want to be evil with his creation on the contrary he wants us to enjoy the benefits of the Kingdom of God. It is the Father’s good pleasure to give us (little flock) the kingdom. Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added. It’s as simple as seeking his government, and obeying, living right in it. That’s it. Obey his commands, or his words, the laws of his kingdom. Thus living right beige him and He, the Lord, will take care of you. He cannot lie. From the beginnings he sought that we may live right and do right. That we may be blessed.

  38. ““But my people would not listen to me. They kept doing whatever they wanted, following the stubborn desires of their evil hearts. They went backward instead of forward.”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭7:24‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    The delusion that we are making the right decisions when we are only trying to serve our own will and needs is quite a sad life.

    Like the scripture says we think we’re going forward but in reality we’re just going backwards and even in circles.

    I pray we have a deeper revelation of Matt 6:33. To live and give Jesus to not only benefit The Kingdom. As well as our lives with Christ.

  39. “This is what I told them: ‘Obey me, and I will be your God, and you will be my people. Do everything as I say, and all will be well!’”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭7:23‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Many believe living for God is hard when it isn’t. Jesus doesn’t complicate things or orchestrate confusion. He is simple – Do everything as I say and all will be well. We can’t get caught up in what we see because we don’t have the whole picture to frame. We have to trust God and His Word. He is a God who still keeps His promises!

  40. “But my people have not listened to me or even tried to hear. They have been stubborn and sinful—even worse than their ancestors.”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭7:26‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Seems we are living in these times yet again. Our generation has become stubborn, self willed, and refuses to believe in the one true God but instead places all their faith in government entities, science, and strangers on social media. Let’s pray that the hearts of this generation will begin to long for more than what they already know and that they would begin to seek for truth through Him.

  41. ‘The bodies of my people will be food for the vultures and wild animals, and no one will be left to scare them away. I will put an end to the happy singing and laughter in the streets of Jerusalem. The joyful voices of bridegrooms and brides will no longer be heard in the towns of Judah. The land will lie in complete desolation.’

    Jeremiah 7:33-34
    Its no joke how bad God cant stand our sin. The frustration we cause him when we choose flesh over him is something I keep in mind when temptation is to rise. I wanna be a pleaser to God not a pleaser to the things of this world. Jesus dont play with sin..

  42. “But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭7:24‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    We must do His will not our own. We must decrease and he must increase in our lives. It comes with dying daily in prayer, reading and applying the Word and fasting. 

    “(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.”
    ‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭10:4-6‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  43. 2 Stand in the gate of the Lord’s house, and proclaim there this word, and say, Hear the word of the Lord, all ye of Judah, that enter in at these gates to worship the Lord.
    3 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place.

    The fact that everyone needs to hear the simple words of amend your life. Make the necessary changes in life, in your actions, in your doings, etc. We are all human and make mistakes, we have to know when to turn around! We have to strive to do better! Strive to make Him happy and be more like Him.
