Jeremiah 8

At that time, saith the Lord, they shall bring out the bones of the kings of Judah, and the bones of his princes, and the bones of the priests, and the bones of the prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, out of their graves:

And they shall spread them before the sun, and the moon, and all the host of heaven, whom they have loved, and whom they have served, and after whom they have walked, and whom they have sought, and whom they have worshipped: they shall not be gathered, nor be buried; they shall be for dung upon the face of the earth.

And death shall be chosen rather than life by all the residue of them that remain of this evil family, which remain in all the places whither I have driven them, saith the Lord of hosts.

Moreover thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord; Shall they fall, and not arise? shall he turn away, and not return?

Why then is this people of Jerusalem slidden back by a perpetual backsliding? they hold fast deceit, they refuse to return.

I hearkened and heard, but they spake not aright: no man repented him of his wickedness, saying, What have I done? every one turned to his course, as the horse rusheth into the battle.

Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the Lord.

How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain.

The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, they have rejected the word of the Lord; and what wisdom is in them?

10 Therefore will I give their wives unto others, and their fields to them that shall inherit them: for every one from the least even unto the greatest is given to covetousness, from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.

11 For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.

12 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall among them that fall: in the time of their visitation they shall be cast down, saith the Lord.

13 I will surely consume them, saith the Lord: there shall be no grapes on the vine, nor figs on the fig tree, and the leaf shall fade; and the things that I have given them shall pass away from them.

14 Why do we sit still? assemble yourselves, and let us enter into the defenced cities, and let us be silent there: for the Lord our God hath put us to silence, and given us water of gall to drink, because we have sinned against the Lord.

15 We looked for peace, but no good came; and for a time of health, and behold trouble!

16 The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan: the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they are come, and have devoured the land, and all that is in it; the city, and those that dwell therein.

17 For, behold, I will send serpents, cockatrices, among you, which will not be charmed, and they shall bite you, saith the Lord.

18 When I would comfort myself against sorrow, my heart is faint in me.

19 Behold the voice of the cry of the daughter of my people because of them that dwell in a far country: Is not the Lordin Zion? is not her king in her? Why have they provoked me to anger with their graven images, and with strange vanities?

20 The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.

21 For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt; I am black; astonishment hath taken hold on me.

22 Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?

  1. Jeremiah 8:5,18,20-21
    [5]Then why do these people stay on their self-destructive path? Why do the people of
    Jerusalem refuse to turn back? They cling tightly to their lies and will not turn around.
    [18]My grief is beyond healing; my heart is broken.
    [20]“The harvest is finished, and the summer is gone,” the people cry, “yet we are not saved!”
    [21]I hurt with the hurt of my people. I mourn and am overcome with grief.

    Jeremiah is known as the weeping prophet. He was filled with grief because the people of Jerusalem refused to turn from their disobedient ways and follow the Lord’s ways. Because of that they were not saved and didn’t get salvation. We need to be living in the will and the commandments of the Lord and be in his word everyday.

  2. “Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then has not the [spiritual] health of the daughter of my people been restored?”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭8:22‬ ‭AMP

    Sin has a way to seem desirable, fun for the moment. But it is our sin that has separated us from GOD.
    Taking the first steps towards our LORD JESUS and repent will bring healing, health, and restoration.
    Life is full of choices. Death may be for a second, but eternity will be spent somewhere.

  3. Jeremiah 8:20, “The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.”

    The culture that we live in, Yes, the summer is ended. We are now into Fall, and it’s Harvest Time. We cannot afford to let this opportunity of Harvest Time pass us by without souls being saved.
    Jesus said in St. John 4:35, “…behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to Harvest.” The time is NOW! It’s Harvest Time!
    It’s time to Harvest – it’s time to preach, teach, and witness to others about JESUS. It’s time to Harvest – gather in the souls so that they Can Be Saved Now!

    Help us all JESUS to do our part in Harvesting Souls for Your Kingdom!
    LIVE-GIVE JESUS2

  4. 4 Moreover thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord; Shall they fall, and not arise? shall he turn away, and not return?
    5 Why then is this people of Jerusalem slidden back by a perpetual backsliding? they hold fast deceit, they refuse to return.

    There is a saying in the entrepreneurial world that refers to the ones who want it bad enough are the ones that get up after they fail time and time again, because they understand the process of success. It’s not so much in those terms but basically it’s saying this same concept. The ones whose heart are pure and after God are going to correct themselves after seeing that they’ve done wrong or they’re going to get back up after falling. Whenever you truly want something then you’re going to go after it with all of your might. You don’t care how long it takes or how many times it takes, you’re just destined to make it happen. Walking with Christ is no different, you’re not in it for the short gain and you’re not in it just to avoid punishment, you’re following Christ because you love him and you’ll do anything to get near him.

  5. 8 How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain.
    9 The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, they have rejected the word of the Lord; and what wisdom is in them?

    Living your own way and by your own wisdom but rejecting God’s ways is foolishness. We can’t think highly of ourselves or others who don’t regard the wisdom in God’s word. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.

  6. Cuando es tiempo de arrepentirse? Hasta que DIOS propio nos alcanze y nos aviente al propio aviso!! Hagamoslo ahora que es tiempo y por Amor a el y no por miedo Sino que sea gusto propio y Amor de verdad.

  7. I love pofw LIVE JESUS GIVE JESUS 2. If you live for God easy its hard, if you live for God hard it’s easy. I heard Bro. Fielding say this many times. If you think about it how true it is!! So in our reading today it speaks of bodies of unsaved peoples bones spread out as trash and left for dung. How awful is that. I’m good so good with being resurrected when Jesus comes back!!!

  8. “Jeremiah, say to the people, ‘This is what the Lord says: “‘When people fall down, don’t they get up again? When they discover they’re on the wrong road, don’t they turn back? “
    ‘How can you say, “We are wise because we have the word of the Lord,” when your teachers have twisted it by writing lies? These wise teachers will fall into the trap of their own foolishness, for they have rejected the word of the Lord. Are they so wise after all?
    Jeremiah 8:4‭, ‬8‭-‬9 NLT

    https://bible.com/bible/116/jer.8.4-9.NLT

    Brother Azzolini said the other night God told him to stop listening to other preachers during the pandemic. Everyone felt like they were an expert on things so God told him to only listen to his pastor and what came from the pulpit at his home church.
    You have to make a decision to not listen to the voices around you and trust in the voice that is responsible for your soul.

  9. Jeremiah 8: 22 ( amp) Is there no balm in Gilead?
    Is there no physician there? Why then is not the health of the daughter of my people restored ? [ Because Zion no longer had the presence of the Great Physician ! ]
    Exod. 15: 26 ( amp) Saying , If you will diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord your God, and will do what is right in His sight, and will listen to and obey His commandments and keep all His statues, I will put none of the diseases upon you which I brought upon the Egyptians; for I am the Lord Who heals you.
    We are the hospital, for all the hurting and lost souls!
    God gives us power to heal people and all diseases.
    Where your faith ! Just believe and trust in Lord with all your heart and soul and do right.

  10. LIVE – GIVE JESUS2
    GODS PLAN

    22 Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?

    When the people of GOD choose to Pray, go to Outreach, live Faithful, and Worship JESUS only. We are poised and positioned to be healed in the land of the LORD.

    There is a natural balm in Gilead; The CHURCH, the natural balm is the anointing of the Holy Ghost, the SPIRIT of GOD flows through us like an oil of healing. JESUS is our great physician, HE is omnipotent and omnipresent With a daily dose of the Holy Ghost and a daily helping of the Bread of LIFE the BIBLE. We as christian believers should be healthy in Spirit and desire to be with JESUS, to LIVE JESUS and Give JESUS every day.

    GODS PLAN is that we recover from the sickness of sin and backsliding. Returning to JESUS for all that HE has for us.

  11. 20 the harvest is past, the summer is ended and
    We are not saved.
    —-
    The grass dies up and dies
    The flower falls to the ground
    But the word of the Lord
    Last forever.

    The gospel will always be the same.
    It will not changed.
    And repentance is necessary
    The Lord has given everyone a measure of faith..
    So it’s not because lack of faith.

    The Lord gives many opportunities
    The man chooses his path.
    Those who do not want anything with the Lord.
    Rather want what the flesh wants.
    🙏

  12. Jeremiah 8

    20 The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.

    21 For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt; I am black; astonishment hath taken hold on me.

    22 Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?

    The people of Israel continued to sin . They would not turn away from their sin. Sickness and terror all around yet they would not repent. Sadly all they needed was available to them. Peace health life . There is a Balm in Giilead. Why reject the God who has
    given all . Oh the harvest is ended sadly and there will be many lost. God help our life help my life reflect You and share how you have brought me through . Before the harvest is past. In Jesus name

  13. “I hurt with the hurt of my people. I mourn and am overcome with grief.”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭8:21‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Jeremiah had the a Word directly from the Lord and he still mourned for his people. He didn’t puff up and say ‘Oh that’s what they deserve’. He didn’t put them down and see them as lesser than. He hurt for his people. As leaders we have to make sure we stay humbled in our walk with God because those we share the gospel with are worth it. We are no greater than anyone because we were once them. We were all born in sin.

  14. 12 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall among them that fall: in the time of their visitation they shall be cast down, saith the Lord.

    13 I will surely consume them, saith the Lord: there shall be no grapes on the vine, nor figs on the fig tree, and the leaf shall fade; and the things that I have given them shall pass away from them.

    They didn’t turn from their ways after God had shown them mercy so now they have to reap what they sowed.

  15. ‘My grief is beyond healing; my heart is broken. Listen to the weeping of my people; it can be heard all across the land. “Has the Lord abandoned Jerusalem? ” the people ask. “Is her King no longer there?” “Oh, why have they provoked my anger with their carved idols and their worthless foreign gods?” says the Lord . “The harvest is finished, and the summer is gone,” the people cry, “yet we are not saved!” I hurt with the hurt of my people. I mourn and am overcome with grief. Is there no medicine in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why is there no healing for the wounds of my people?’

    Jeremiah 8:18-22
    Jesus loves us. To have a heart after the Lords you must have love like the Lord. Those that aren’t here and those that have left and those that are on the fence about leaving don’t say a word just pray fervently for them and speak the Word of God into the situation. Weep for them but at the same time get up and seek after those that are waiting to be saved that are waiting for a word that are waiting for you to step in and bring light into their dark and helpless situation

  16. 12 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall among them that fall: in the time of their visitation they shall be cast down, saith the Lord.

    13 I will surely consume them, saith the Lord: there shall be no grapes on the vine, nor figs on the fig tree, and the leaf shall fade; and the things that I have given them shall pass away from them.

    This reminds me of the times today. It seems there is no shame… a double morality preach but don’t do or do and don’t preach!!! We sin by sinning or by tolerating the sin… as some of us old timers say “ we are all going to hell in a hand basket”. Oh, but God is love!!! YES HE IS!!! He loves us through His great Mercy given to us by repentance. Some of you will not like me for what I just said, but I have never won any popularity contests and I won’t start now.

    14 Why do we sit still? assemble yourselves, and let us enter into the defenced cities, and let us be silent there: for the Lord our God hath put us to silence, and given us water of gall to drink, because we have sinned against the Lord.

    Let’s run away to a place that we feel safe and stay quiet as we repent or so they can’t hear us when they come for us. Let’s hide from God for He has given us bitter sorrows so May be we can reflect on what we have done. Again sounds like today… Lord knows this plague has brought enough sorrows to the people. And instead of running to God we insist in running away and continue to live in sorrow.

    Psalm 30:11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;

    Jesus Christ is the ONLY ONE that can take the bitterness of gall (bile) and turned it as sweet as honey!!! So why wait??? If I could I would come running to His Mercy Seat!!!!

  17. iLove the Kingdom of Jesus2
    11 For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.

    I wonder how many folks are in trouble for healing hurts that ought not be healed. Some folk need the hurt until they find the Healer. If I would have been bailed out of my hurt by humans, I personally would have never found the Healer and I would still be lost.

  18. AMP – 7 “Even the stork in the sky
    Knows her seasons [of migration],
    And the turtledove, the swallow and the crane
    Observe the time of their return.
    But My people do not know
    The law of the Lord.

    Everything God created was created to worship Him. Yet man was given the power of choice, and unfortunately for most people, they choose to not worship Him, or perhaps they started out living for God and have allowed the cares of life and desire for things of this world to overtake them and they no longer live for the Lord.

    His heart is for all to love Him and live for Him. His desire is for those who have gone astray to return home. It’s time for us to put away things that hinder our walk with God, and live for Him with all our heart, mind and soul. It’s time to grow up in Jesus!

    1 Corinthians 13:11
    When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

  19. 17 For, behold, I will send serpents, cockatrices, among you, which will not be charmed, and they shall bite you, saith the Lord.

    A life of sin has consequences and the anger of the Lord is something to be feared.

  20. “Jeremiah, say to the people, ‘This is what the Lord says: “‘When people fall down, don’t they get up again? When they discover they’re on the wrong road, don’t they turn back? Then why do these people stay on their self-destructive path? Why do the people of Jerusalem refuse to turn back? They cling tightly to their lies and will not turn around.
    Jeremiah 8:4‭-‬5 NLT

    Turn around!! It’s really as easy as that, but our flesh must be crucified and disciplined. Pray daily and consecrate yourself before the Lord. Daily lay yourself upon the altar and let the Lord work on you.

  21. Jeremiah 8:8 NLT
    “‘How can you say, “We are wise because we have the word of the Lord,” when your teachers have twisted it by writing lies?

    One thing is to have the word of the Lord and another is to have in your heart. I can take my bible every where but if I don’t read or study it, then its easy for someone to tell me half truths. Just like the serpent spoke to eve in the garden some can can do the same to us. We must know and do What His Word says.

  22. 10 Therefore will I give their wives unto others, and their fields to them that shall inherit them: for every one from the least even unto the greatest is given to covetousness, from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely

    Covetousness is the cause for lying, divorce, theft, abuse, crime, murder and many more evils. The bible says that the love of money is the root of all evil. One of the 10 commandments is “thou shalt not covet”. We should not covet , but, be content with what we have. The Bible says that “godliness with contentment is great gain”.

  23. The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved

    there is coming a time that we will enter a season of dryness will we come out saved our will we come out lost when the fruits begin to slow and the water begins to dry.

  24. 8 How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain.

    9 The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, they have rejected the word of the Lord; and what wisdom is in them?

    We should never reject what The Word Of God has us to hear and listen. His Word is what gives us wisdom on how to live and continue with the battles that may come to overcome them.
    Thank You Jesus!!!

  25. 20 The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.

    This. This is how quick our life may seem to be. Live in the moment while you can. The coming of the Lord is unpredictable. Your last day on earth is unpredictable. We do not know these things, it’s unfortunate. We must be living the life as His people. There is no time for you to turn your back on God, for He has a plan. I pray tonight that you chose your chose wisely and know…know that your time on this earth is worth every second so spend and chaos it wisely!

  26. “Jeremiah, say to the people, ‘This is what the Lord says: “‘When people fall down, don’t they get up again? When they discover they’re on the wrong road, don’t they turn back?”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭8:4‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    The enemy knows when we have made a mistake, he knows when we are in our lowest mind set, and that is where he will start putting stuff in your head saying God won’t forgive you or you should be ashamed. The enemy will try so many ways to win you over no matter what. But I pray that we realize God is always fighting for us, he will always forgive us and help us get back up from our lowest places and from when we messed up. Trust in God for he sees your purpose and your worth, he is fighting for you for a reason!

  27. 9 The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, they have rejected the word of the Lord; and what wisdom is in them?

    When we reject God’s word, we reject him. Going after what God wants, will get us to where he wants us to be. If we want to succeed in the kingdom of God, we must lay down our own will to accomplish his will.

  28. 5 Why then is this people of Jerusalem slidden back by a perpetual backsliding? they hold fast deceit, they refuse to return.

    This is not the hour to backslide. This is the hour to stand and be apostolic. Stubbornness will lead one down a long sack road but we all must examine our lives and follow the road to return to what God has called us to be.

  29. “Therefore will I give their wives unto others, and their fields to them that shall inherit them: for every one from the least even unto the greatest is given to covetousness, from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭8:10‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    I learned that if you don’t take your blessings god will give it to someone else who will take it

  30. Jeremiah 8

    22 Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?

    I tell you the heart of God is fainting. He is wondering why is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?
    We are a stiff neck people full of pride and wanting our own way. Yet God is asking These Questions that we may see His reaction and sorrow.

    We are not our own. We have been bought with a price of true love and sacrifice. We could not save ourselves because sin suppurated us from Him. Therefore Jesus was the only person who was without sin and
    He is God in the flesh that He may redeem us and that we would be his bride.

    Remember we are eternal beings and our spirits do not die. So we have a choice to make and that choice is a forever choice. Life with Him or life in Hell with out him. Both choices are eternal choices. The word says choose Life. Let us respond positively to His loving gift of love, mercy, and the greatest invitation that is given to mankind. Choose Life!

  31. “I will surely consume them. There will be no more harvests of figs and grapes. Their fruit trees will all die. Whatever I gave them will soon be gone. I, the Lord, have spoken!’”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭8:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    God can give and take away. The words of God will come to pass. Deserve your blessing, and keep your blessing.

  32. “These wise teachers will fall into the trap of their own foolishness, for they have rejected the word of the Lord. Are they so wise after all?”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭8:9‬ ‭NLT

    Don’t exalt yourself above God for He Has all authority, but glorify God for His excellent greatness and all that Jesus Has done for you. Let your heart desire seek first God and obey His word for, His word is a lamp to your feet and a light to your path.

  33. Jeremiah 8

    7 Even the stork in the sky knows her appointed seasons, and the dove, the swift and the thrush observe the time of their migration. But my people definitely do not know the requirement of the LORD.

    The birds followed their instincts to migrate, but the Israelites refused to follow God’s promptings to obey His covenant. God still referred to the people of Judah as my people even though they kept rebelling against the LORD. This showed me how much he loved them even though they rejected the LORD. We have a loving forgiving God. I am so grateful of this.
    Thank you Jesus for this day.

  34. Jeremiah 8:22 Is there no balm in Gilead; Is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?

    Jeremiah is overcome with grief for his people

  35. 5 Why then is this people of Jerusalem slidden back by a perpetual backsliding? they hold fast deceit, they refuse to return.

    Many have come and gone but one thing remains the Lord is faithful and just to forgive. He warns the people of the coming doom though they have turned their back on Him. God knows they aren’t going to listen and He knows the hearts of man. Some may believe they know us but only God knows the true inner man. He will try and work on us and redeem us to himself. It’s up to us to willingly repent.

  36. I listen to their conversations and don’t hear a word of truth. Is anyone sorry for doing wrong? Does anyone say, “What a terrible thing I have done”? No! All are running down the path of sin as swiftly as a horse galloping into battle!
    Jeremiah 8:6 NLT

    Conviction can be a wonderful thing. It brings the heart of man to repentance. Yet it is a terrible thing to not feel any conviction at all. To be so distant that you are numb and no longer feel. When conviction kicks in we take notice of what we have done and ask for forgiveness.

  37. Verse 12 ERV “They should be ashamed of the evil things they do, but they are not ashamed at all. They don’t know enough to be embarrassed by their sins. So they will be punished with everyone else. They will be thrown to the ground when I punish the people.’” This is what the Lord said.” Such a sad place to be when you allow sin to blind you to a point where it doesn’t matter where you are and your basically telling God I refuse your forgiveness and your warnings as it reads in the VOICE version. Sin=Punishment. Heed the warnings and really get to know truth.

  38. 3 And death shall be chosen rather than life by all the residue of them that remain of this evil family, which remain in all the places whither I have driven them, saith the Lord of hosts.
    4 Moreover thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord; Shall they fall, and not arise? shall he turn away, and not return?
    5 Why then is this people of Jerusalem slidden back by a perpetual backsliding? they hold fast deceit, they refuse to return.

    Death. . . Death is chosen when you are not choosing a life for God! A life of a back slider is a path that is headed for death! Black and white scripture passage. So, why do so many choose?? It’s hard to come back with all of that baggage and then with all the feelings of guilt and judgement. Are we there?? Can we do better to accept?? Lord, help us to cleanse our own hearts to do better and know when to not only forgive, but to forget! Lord, I pray that you give us the wisdom for the return of the prodigal.
