Discussion for Jeremiah 23:30

  • Jeremiah 23:5-6 is such an encouragement when we would despair because of all that is broken and hurting in our nation and world. The righteous Branch, from the lineage of David, the coming King who will reign and prosper, foresees Christ's second return. He will execute judgment and justice (just in Israel?) no..."in the earth," the whole earth. The whole creation groans and travails together in pain until now (Romans 8:22) and only Christ's return will relieve it. My challenge is not to be overburdened by worry and fear for what is happening, but to endure and wait patiently for Him. He will be called THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS, for we have no righteousness of ourselves.
  • Joclynne white on Jeremiah 23:30
    I agree with this. It is wonderful(funny) how the bible is reference to everything in life. Atleast my life. I can always find something. I am writing a paper on plagarisim.

    Therefore, behold, I [am] against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbour.
