Discussion for Jeremiah 29

    In verses 12 and 13, even though the Israelites had repeatedly ignored Jehovah God and left him, He was willing to listen to them and he didn't retaliate by treating them he way they treated him.

    Jer. 29:10 - I've read this and the same message in other places, but what was literally thrown a 'light' on for me is the fact that God knew after 70 yrs. they would be ready to return to Him. He knew how long it would take even before He pronounced this judgment. He did this with me; after 34 yrs. of backsliding He KNEW I was ready to come back. I didn't; It was a surprise to me!!!

    Jer. 29:7 - And seek the peace of the city ..... "; in our day the city is - our home, if someone in it is against God, and it is still literal cities for third world countries where Isis, Al Queada, Boko Haram, etc. are. Pray for their captors to be convicted of sin - THROUGH THEIR RIGHTEOUS WALK BEFORE THEM, even as their prisoners. Just like Paul.
