    Insight777; Deuteronomy 28 and Leviticus 26 for starters, tells us quite clearly that defiance and disobedience and indifference incurs God's wrath, especially toward those to whom the most has been entrusted! God is willing to forgive us and save us when we repent and change our ways, for Jesus' sake who loved us and died in our place. But to the defiant and unrepentant wicked no salvation!

    Jer.1:9"Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth" Looks like God speaking through Jeremiah to me. It is the Lord God that plots against Judah. You really should stop putting Satan in God's place in verse by using words: Lord man, "god" to describe Satan.
  • A disciple
    Insight777; 1) Jeremiah was one of the last Prophets to be sent to speak to Judah and Jerusalem, before the carry away of Babylon, and the commencement of the Times of the Gentiles. 2) Jeremiah was of the family of the priests, not Benjamin, and not Judah; our Lord came through the house of Judah. 3) Read the 2nd Psalm; it is God who will set up His King upon the throne of Israel and the world.
  • Insight777
    Jeremiah is a prophet of the future but Jesus said beware of Benjaminite wolves. Is the Lord God speaking through Jeremiah, the Father of Jesus? No. The true God does not plot the destruction of Judah. This Lord man "god" calls for the death of all Jews in order to rule Jerusalem and the world.
  • Tbwright
    The message for this lost and dying world is to preach and teach about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and how He saves!
