The Idiocy of Idols & The Greatness of GOD

adam

This is the last chapter of the message GOD told Jeremiah to declare to the people of Judah at the Temple gate which began back in chapter 7. As we shall see, he concluded the message with a poetic section contrasting the vast difference between idols & the living GOD. This is a parenthetical address on the greatness of GOD …

Sifting The Wise & The Fools

adam

The people of Judah thought they were wise; but as time would prove they were fools! They thought they could worship the Lord GOD on their own terms, ignore His Law, & also commit spiritual adultery & somehow continue to experience GOD’s peace & prosperity. Only a fool, someone ignorant of GOD, would believe such lies. But that is what …

Living In A Land Of Lies

adam

GOD had sent His prophets to sow His Word, His Truth, throughout the nation. And GOD gave Judah every opportunity to repent, but she continued to rebel. Over & over GOD came looking for a harvest but could find no souls to reap. And now, the harvest season, representing GOD’s opportunities to repent, was past. By not heeding GOD’s Word …

Is There No Balm In Gilead?

Religion’s Highway To Hell

adam

Hell is an unpopular subject today, even in the church. The world dismisses it as an ancient myth & tragically, within the evangelical community, there is a growing movement to do away with the doctrine of this place of eternal damnation. One of the heretics championing this renewed push to erase the truth about hell from the Bible is Rob …

When Praying Becomes Pointless

adam

Jeremiah preached, but nobody listened. He poured his heart out & preached repent of sin & return to the Lord as best he could by GOD’s help, but the people did not listen. Judah’s heart was far from GOD & she should have heeded Jeremiah’s preaching; but instead the people became angry with Jeremiah. They saw him as their enemy …

The Danger Of Religion

adam

There’s a verse from Jeremiah which we quote all the time which says: Jer 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? It is impossible to know the true condition of our hearts apart from the Lord’s help. Thankfully, there are some external points of examination we can observe which aid us in …
