Discussion for Jeremiah 32

  • A disciple
    Its a lot different dealing with real people, than reading or listening to theories and pontifications from "experts." Its interesting too, that nowhere does the Lord provide for us to work out our salvation by listening to tapes or cd's; but by actually living among other humans, and learning therein how to follow Jesus in His character and conduct, in ordinary day to day circumstances.

    Library Gal; Family problems are private, we all know, but since you brought them to this somewhat anonymous forum; without giving out personally identifying information, is there any helpful advice we can give? Since you don't say any specifics, it wouldn't fair to assume anything: but maybe you could give some hypothetical or generalizations, to describe. Look forward to hearing from you.
  • A disciple
    If we didn't read the whole thing in context, we wouldn't quite know the power in the LORD's words, that He is the God of all flesh, and that nothing is too hard for Him. It's not just for asking things from God, as some might assume but it is about making solid and sure preparations, and taking witnesses to confirm, for things not seen as yet but are spoken and affirmed by the Scriptures. We are building an ark, based entirely on the word of God, about things not seen as yet, to save us from the deluge of destruction coming. And we are going out from a world of heathen culture, unto a place that God has prepared for us, which just now is not seen. The terrible and dreadful time of the end is most definitely upon us, as the Lord has said it would be and He tells us to make preparations for the day following. There is a reason for the world going into cataclysm and catastrophe, and the transgressors loosed from all restraint just as there is reason for us to be tried as gold is tried in the furnace of temptations and tribulations. We take to us witnesses to record, by the course in life we take, before the eyes of all among whom we live and work. We take witnesses to record, as the Angels in charge of writing down in books for the last day and the judgment. We purchase "a field" in the heights, of a country of our own kind to come.

    From verses 17-24 Jeremiah finished his prayer of exaltation and immediately after that prayer the God of all creation confirmed to Jeremiah that indeed He is the great I AM verse 27 "Behold I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me? Omnipotence and righteousness revealed. Praise God!

    Oh God, please bring peace to my family. At the moment family members are not speaking to each other, there is so much tension, and I am expected to fix everything. They are all old enough to do so, but I am looked to for a remedy. I have been through enough. I have faith Lord, and believe that you will bring peace. Thank you God, in Jesus' mighty name, Amen.

    Really needed this verse today. I've been waiting for a long time for an answer to prayer and I have often wondered if it's the Lord's will or not. But this has helped alleviate my discouragement. PTL
