Wesley's Notes for Jeremiah 32:5


32:5 Until I visit him - Perhaps in mercy; it is certain Zedekiah was not put to death, only carried to Babylon, where some think he afterward found favour with the king of Babylon.

    Praise be to God, who sent forth his word: not only of a new and everlasting covenant but also of Himself through His only begotten Son. That through His sacrifice at the cross and His resurrection we have the Grace needed to live life knowing that we are His beloved.

    one more time or again we see Jehoviah / GOD rightly build then destroy those who sin in the manner as the people in this chapter (whether HIS chosen people or heathen gentiles). Also we see the MERCY of GOD. Thank GOD for HIS MERCY! WOW! WOW! WOW!

    A Bigger Picture of Payment Due. Some Will Enter His Rest. MOST will not. Whosoever's Name is not Written in The Book of Life is Thrown into The Lake of Fire Revelations 20:15 Only Those Who do The Will of The Father, Enter Heaven Matthew 7:21 Where's Your Name?

    I see this as America and Israel going to reap what they have sowen on mankind
    where they could have been a blessing blessing they have been oppressors ...

    This word of GOD speaks to my soul, it tells me I don't need to concern myself about anything. How Great is our GOD, king of Kings Lord of Lords.

    What this means to me is that God is the creator of everything. Every individual, every emotion and everything that works together to push everything forward into the appropriate direction. Until we fully understand that everything that is of existence is in God's hand, we will continue to live in fear of the unknown, not trusting that God knows all, and has everything under control.
