Discussion for Jeremiah 4

    THIS CHAPTER SPEAKS ON WHY THE PEOPLE OF THE SLAVE TRADE THAT ARE SCATTERED ACROSS THE WORLD WERE ENSLAVED. YAHUAH SENT PROPHET AFTER PROPHET AND THEY WOULD NOT OBEY TO RETURN TO HIM AND LEAVE OTHER NATIONS IDOLS AND GODS ALONE. SO HE PUT THEM INTO A LONG CAPTIVITY THATS COMING TO AN END. TODAH YAHUAH!!!!!!! SHALOM
  • RNM JER 4-------2
    Going off these old comments, I think we just need to interject some sense, first off, ver.9 it says: And it shall come to pass AT THAT DAY. is usually speaking of the Coming of the Son of God in his Glory and the Glory of the Father and His Angels. There are other references in the bible to this, being a catastrophic worldwide event, all flesh being destroyed like in the flood, except for the children of God that make up the Bride of Christ. The chosen of God. and what I 'm going to say next will offend some who read this but, The Obedient Ones, that 's what makes them different. It is those who believe and live by all ten commandments, including the fourth which is the the 7th day Sabbath, it is the same commandment that the Israelites, perished in the wilderness because of there unbelief. I John 14:15-If you love me, Keep my Commandments. And that 's what He means. AMEN!!

    Mesopotamia was coming to perform the Lord's judgement on Judea and remove it's citizens, tear down the houses of the affluent and, the walls around Jerusalem and destroy the Temple of the Lord. The Lord stopped the rains so the land became desolate and dried-up. It became desolate and was compared to the disarray of Gen. 1:2-3.

    We should interject Jeremiah 4: 23-26 in between Genesis 1:2 and 1:3! Then take a good long studied look at what it now states! And after doing that, take a good very long studied look into the new discoveries and fact being dug up of the last decade, concerning the destruction of earth by a comet that broke into many pieces(the instrument of God's judgment!)that happened back before and during the Younger-Dryas event of 12,900 years ago! That's what I think. There is a 'gap' between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2 but it is not billions, millions or even 100's of thousands of years, but rather only a few thousand, and the recreation from the damage caused by the comet, took God only SIX literal days to restore! That's what I think. God bless!

    This is the 1st Earth Age,
    Genesis 1:1-2
    1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
    2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

    Our Father didnt create nothin "Void" this word was means became that way.
    To understand our Fathers 7 thousand year plan, one must understand the 3- Earth Age's

    The 1000 years is for teaching.the Elect are Priest and teach. Know one, not even the wicked die until the Great White Throne judgment. The wicked maybe in a pit. But after the 1000 years satan will be let out as lucifer the created man and even then it says that some will follow him into the fire. They get lied to again by a man lucifer and they Don't think they will lose. They do! Now in Revelation the acting roll and the power given the false prophet go into the fire but satan goes into the pit until that short season.
