Wesley's Notes for Jeremiah 8:16


8:16 The snorting - The fury of the Chaldeans march is described by the snorting of their horses, which is a noise they make through their nostrils. Heard - Even to Jerusalem. Have devoured - It is spoken in a prophetical style, who use to express the certainty of what shall be, as if it actually were already.

    Was this an event in history, or a prophecy for today?Muslims are known for digging up remains of kings and leaders.It refers to it being in the sight of the hosts of heaven,and their flag is moon and star.Invasion from far North would be Turkey.So many Jews are so by heritage only, and they did refuse to accept the Messiah when He came. "Refine"

    This book is hard for me to enjoy because it is God punishing or letting bad things happen to Judah. He even hired old King Neb to have his way with them because of their noisome disobedience. He removed his protection that King David waxed so poetic about in Psalms. And so it is. Yes, the bible is ancient but the lessons remain quite topical. Follow after idols in any form and you can kiss your blessings goodbye.

    Verse 14, Jesus is the living water and Israel rejects Jesus. Jesus is Peace and Love. That rejection is the sin against the Lord. Therefore, they only have the symbolic water of Satan to drink, which is gall and that represents Hate and War.
  • It is evident that the essence of harvest is not felt in the lives of the people. People are meant to reflect on the literary meaning of harvest but the reverse is the case as people turn harvest to period of meriment and not a period of sober reflection.

    God is showing us signs and wonders, He is telling us the time is very short. It is time to repent of our sins and to encourage others to return to The Lord. Many people are dying needlessly because of sin. But there is hope for many who will look to Jesus.

    Jeremiah 8:15 We looked for peace (worldly peace), but no good came (no peace came); and for a time of health (health care for all), and behold trouble! Instead the deadly Mark of the Beast. Amen
