Jeremiah Part 5

 

 

*   The parable of Jer 5:1 is an action item.  What are Tekoa and Beth-haccerem representing?

It is a repeat of Jer 4:5-6

 

 

*   Ask for the “old paths”. (Jer 6:16)   

What was good for our forefathers is still good for us.

 

 

*   Proclaim in the gates of the Lord’s House.  No one has an excuse (Jer 7:1-3)

Notice how Israel is again called to repent.

 

 

*   Trust ye not in lying words:  This is the Temple of the Lord.  We will be safe (Jer 7:4-7)

God destroyed the Temple. God can also destroy the Church (Matt 16:18)

 

 

*   Can you trust in God and live like the Devil? (Jer 7:8-11)

Peddling such false gospels makes you a den of robbers (Matt 21:12-13)

Buying and selling false gospels means you are a den of thieves (Rev 13:17)

 

 

*   Look at Shiloh.  Look at Jerusalem.  Look at the Church! (Jer 7:12-15)

The term: “which is called by My Name” applies to the Temple of Jehovah, but it also applies to the Christian Church.

 

 

*   Pray not for this people, for I will not hear thee (Jer 7:16-20)

Because they worship the Queen of Heaven (Jer 7:18, 44:11-30)

What is today’s parallel of  “the Queen of Heaven”?

 

 

*   To obey is better than all burnt offerings and sacrifices

(1Sam 15:22-23, Mark 12:28-34, Jer 7:21-23)

            Why did they not obey? Could God make them obey, and prevent Jerusalem’s destruction?

 

 

*   What does it mean: burn sons and daughters in the fire? (Deut 12:31, Jer 7:31-34, 19:5, 32:35)

Do people do that today?

 

 

*   God indicates that the Prophecy of Jeremiah should be referenced with End-Time events (Jer 7:34, 16:9, Rev 18:23)
