Discussion for Jeremiah 22

  • TERRY
    Jer 22:26,27 It touches my soul, in our earthly journey, knowing people leave their birthplace for another country where a great possibility we may not be able to return. But thank and glory to God for His people has a greater place prepared by Jesus where He can receive and bring us home and rejoice forever with Him.

    P A R A D O X ! Shalom yedda dim {beloved one}.
  • MIchael C.
    The "Times of the Gentiles" happened because the house of Israel has never been truly converted, nor had "such a heart in them" worthy of the LORD their God. The throne of David was taken away "until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled;" and at the coming of Christ shall be restored, both over Israel and the nations. Why don't Americans and Europeans see their own sin and judgment in the Word?
