Discussion for Jeremiah 6:27

  • Natasha Johnson on Jeremiah 6:27
    Jeremiah 6 27 "I have made you an assayer and a tester among My people. I believe that God is making someone to be a tester among his people, just like an assayer would test metal but God 's talking about Spiritual testing. He wants them to see and feel what he does, so they can know what he feels about his people. Which is their stubbornly rebellious all of them and their all corrupt and much more.
