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)
