Discussion for Jeremiah 23:5

    Hi Mishael as far as why bad things happen to good people:There are no good people.There are people who do good things.In Mark10:17&18,when the man came running to Him,knelt before Him and asked Him,GOOD TEACHER what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? JESUS said to him Why do you call me good?NO one is good but One,that is GOD.So you see in order to be good you have to be good twenty four hours a day. See we can,t do that,only GOD can do that.But let,s try.

    Hello James,

    I would just like to share what I have learned about Mark 10:17-18. The word good in Verses 17 and 18 is a special word. It is the word AGATHOS. There is another Greek word for the word good, and that word is KALOS. All throughout the bible, the word good is used. But if we just see it in English, we tend to attach one meaning to that word because we don't realize that there are different Greek words for our English word good, and that they have different meanings. You see, we only come away with one meaning for the word good in our English bibles.

    But when I go to the original text, the word AGATHOS is used in both Verses 17 and 18. Jesus is going to say why did you all me AGATHOS? There is only one who is AGATHOS and that is God. Why did you call me AGATHOS? Do you realize what you just called me? You called me God. Why did you do that?

    He is bringing it to this rich man's attention.

    For the longest time I didn't understand these verses. I thought I was a good person, and I knew several good people. And then I read this and it was sort of like letting air out of the tire. I also wondered how others would look at themselves as not being good at all, and how it would make them feel about themselves. But then I learned what was really taking place in these two verses and it made perfect sense. There are good people (KALOS). But no one is good (AGATHOS) but God.

    That is what I've come to learn. This man was referring to Jesus as God, because only God is good (AGATHOS). And Jesus was quick to point out to the rich man that he called him the good that can only be applied to God, which would make Jesus equal to God. But did you notice that Jesus never denied it?

    In Luke 6:45, Jesus said a "A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good;" This tells me that a person can be good, and there are good people, but never AGATHOS! Anyways, I just wanted to share this with you.

    False prophets have been telling lies sense the beginning. What has happen at Samaria, with the idolatry happen everywhere the word was preach. Man are tempted by too many temptations. That why God give us the ten commandments,that we must obey. If God would have punished man for every little thing,on one would be here today. Thank you father for your mercy and grace, you kept given us chance after chance. Now the coronavirus, what a wake up call.if we all shall repent and pray and turn back from our wicked ways the Lord will heal the land. Comment for Jeremiah 23 chapter.
  • Andrew on Jeremiah 23:5
    This Branch is Lord Jesus Christ, in His second coming to rule in the millenium. But Satan is also planning a counterfeit to fool people in the New World Order, to be ruled by some smart, crazy guy, bearing the name of our Saviour.
