Discussion for Jeremiah 1

  • Mary Robertson
    God had called many but has chosen some even before natural birth into this world. God already had saw into your future and knew your heart was to love and you never knew the anointing God had place on your life because of rejection etc and GOD knew you would say what HE SAID and take no GLORY . You would be an instrument used only by GOD wholeheartedly withholding nothing.

    1. We are foreknown of God. 2. We have been created and made to be God's Prophets. 3. The strength of our assurance is that God is with us, and guiding us to do all that He says. 4. It is absolutely imperative that we have His words put in our mouths. 5. The authority of God over all Nations, for the specific purpose of being sent to root out, pull down, destroy and throw down, to build and plant.
  • A disciple
    If in the calling of Jeremiah, we all see our own calling in Christ; it is because of the Divine Calling of the LORD's Anointed the Saviour, the great Antitype of all Prophets and Saints. The things told to Jeremiah, we can and should apply to ourselves; for why else were they written? And they have all their fulfillment in the Lord Jesus Christ! As we study these words, pray them in and believe!
