    Dgjot...Salvation is for everybody...God so loved the world that he gave his only son...That whosoever believeth in him will neva perish....By 1 spirit are we ALL baptised into the body of Christ whether we be Jew or Gentile bond or free male or female...God is no respector of persons, He is gonna apply the blood of Christ to every person that ever lived....Jesus is gonna see thats its accomplished.

    .....Jesus said if i be lifted up I will draw all men unto me...By his Blood ..Its Jesus that is gonna draw all men unto himself....Thats y saying I was found of them that SOUGHT ME NOT ( the world ) I was made manifest unto them that ASKED NOT after me ( the world ) HUMANITY.....ALL NATIONS....The manchild which is the H.G. IS GONA RULE ALL NATIONS.

    ...God so loved the WORLD..Behold the Lamb of God that taketh away the sins of the WORLD ...When Jesus fed the multitudes he didn't cull not 1 person...He fed them ALL with a Childs lunch...Which is Prophetic of the Manchild the H.G. that is gona rule all nations...And feed all of us with that manna from heaven...The living Word...That new COVENANT which is ALL INCLUSIVE... Jeremiah 31:34...I will know them ALL from the least to the greatest.

    .....But every sinner will have to go thru that lake of fire which his baptism of the H.G. and fire...There has to be judgement ....As our God is a Consuming Fire....Its only the devil and his angels that are gonna be Consumed by this lake of fire...And our old Demonic Adamic Nature that is in rank with Satan...ok lemme go GBU

    Chris gave a good answer, I'd like to add to the discussion. Please note the verse right before, Jeremiah 29:11, Jeremiah 29:10, sometimes we want GOD to change our situations "right now", sometimes HE does, but I believe this promise, is for GOD's people when we need the encouragement for the troubled times & endurance in longer seasons. Notice in Daniel, he & his companions had went through many difficult moments but GOD in miraculous ways delivered them, protected them & even encouraged them. I believe it was after Daniel was thrown in the lions den that he fasted & humbly prayed about the promise made in Jeremiah 29:10,11, Daniel 9:1,2,3, still waiting on that promise of 70 years,

    note Daniel 6:1,2,3, (for why I place the timing, seemingly after lions den) the noted scriptures referring to about Daniel's encouragement, & companions, some say "the greater the trial the greater the miraculous": Daniel 1:8,9,17, Daniel 2:12,13,17,23 Daniel 3:12-27, Daniel 4:19,24,25, Daniel 5, Daniel 6:7,10,16,22,28, Daniel 9:23, Daniel 10:11,12,18, Daniel 11:1,

    Luke 10:19, there are moments that are painful but when we look at Salvation, the pruning, witness to strengthen the Body of Believers, then we realize it didn't "hurt us".

    I hope these scriptures give you strength & hope= 1Peter 4:12,13, 2Corinthians 1:3-7, John 15:1-2, 1Corinthians 4:5, 2Corinthians 3:2, Zechariah 13:9, Malachi 3:3, 2Timothy 2:10, Psalms 30:5,

    In correction= Isaiah 48:10,11, Malachi 3:2, Proverbs 3:11-35, Hebrews 12:7, 2Thessalonians 1:4,

    Endure even undue trials= 2Timothy 2:3, 2Timothy 4:5, remember Timothy was with Paul in ministry during persecution. 1Peter 2:19, Mark 13:13, James 5:10,11,

    James 5:13-18, 2Chronicles 7:14,

    Hopefully these are helpful & encouraging

    @Chris: Thank You so much. That's a great comfort.
  • Chris - in Reply on Jeremiah 29
    That's a good question Dgjot, as sometimes we can misapply Scriptures when they speak to people in various cultures, times & situations. To answer your question, I believe that Jeremiah 29:11 does apply to the one in Christ as well.

    My reasoning on this is: whenever God the Father or His Son speak to 'people' through His Word, I always ask, 'who are They speaking to, what is the matter about, and what is the relevance to any other people or ourselves?'

    Briefly, when matters relate specifically to Israel (e.g. the Law, the Sacrifices, to go & conquer lands or enemies, prophecies concerning them/judgements/punishments, etc.), then I read those verses as given to them, but for my knowledge & learning about the Person of the Godhead. But if verses are directed to Israel (such as the one you quoted), do we see the Character of God & His expressions of love, concern, guidance, & help to both Israel (the elect of God) & in the believer in Christ (having the faith needed to be God's elect: Titus 1:1)?

    Israel, having received that special love of God & His intervention in their lives in so many ways, ought to have been shining beacons to the uncivilized idolatrous world, but they chose to spurn God's Love & to reject His Christ, thereby losing their position before God. Why? Because the righteousness in the Law was not sought by faith ( Romans 9:30-32). Had they believed God & sought Him out in real love & faith, the Truth of Jeremiah 29:11-14 would have been their ongoing experience. But as Israel was cut out of the olive tree ( Romans 11), that we who have come to God IN FAITH might be engrafted into it, the promise in Jeremiah & all the promises in the Bible as pertaining to God's people (Jew & Gentile) in whom He delights, must also be applicable to us.

    So, you can take much comfort in that verse & all verses that give you God's Promises: His Seal is within you, His Love is upon you & His Arms surround you and nothing can separate you from that love.
  • Dgjot on Jeremiah 29
    11 "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."

    Does this just apply to the "Jews" or to any "believer"??

    I always found comfort in this verse, but maybe it doesn't apply to me. :(

    Hello One Eighty,

    Haven't heard from You for a while.

    I am aware of Romans 9 passage. Can you give me any more passages that speaks of God hating humans.

    I know that He hates the wickedness in us and those who are rebellious to Him are not favored by Him. But I do not know if that means He hates these people in ways we hate. I think it says that it is because of His loving kindness that He does not destroy humans because of their sinfulness. I am not saying that God does not hate. But His aim is to redeem as many as will come to Him when the Spirit draws them with the Gospel. So I cannot seem to get that He would hate what He wishes to redeem.

    I know that Romans 9 speaks of some creatures who are targets of His mercy and others who are vessels of His wrath. I am not sure if He is referring only to humans here or if He is referring to humans as objects of mercy and the fallen angels as the vessels of His wrath since the Lake of Fire was prepared before they were even created as the place for them to receive His wrath forever.

    Dear Frederick. I will pray for you today.

    Heavenly Father, Gracious Lord, we come today in Jesus' name asking You to restore to Frederick, myself, my sons, and other's loved by believers all that has been stolen, devoured, or destroyed by the evil one. We know that you can make all things new, bring back from the dead that which is destroyed, recover what is lost, replace blessing for what is meant to harm us, repair all that is broken, uplift all who are downtrodden, redeem all who are astray, and work all things for good for those who love You. So, knowing these things are true, we ask that You indeed hear our prayers and take back from the enemy all that he has done to us and undo all the harm he has brought upon us. We are so thankful for your loving care and faithfulness, LORD GOD. Amen.

    1 Chronicles 16:22 | View whole chapter

    Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

    Psalms 105:15 | View whole chapter

    Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

    One time a prophet wouldn't speak, and God made a donkey speak it out.

    This seems fairly non-debatable. When God corrects a prophet; He does it Himself.
  • Eric Lopez on Jeremiah 29
    So the messengers King Zedekiah sent read Jeremiah's letter?

    My understanding of this chapter:

    Jeremiah tells the captives to build houses and grow gardens and eat the fruits there of to learn peace with God. They will be released from captivity and return to Judah.

    False prophet Shemaiah says God will have them be new priest and officers. They will in-prison those who call themselves prophets. The Lord will punish Shemaiah and his seed for this.
  • Debbie Avery on Jeremiah 29:11
    God is so good to me and He blesses those around me. I love our creator and the amazing miracles he performs in my life and in the lives of my loved ones. We all go through trials and trubulations and He is ALWAYS there. He NEVER gives up on us. Jesus, my savior;God my father. My hope is in Him, my life is His. Thank you Yahweh. You are my anchor, my rock and on the solid rock I stand.

    Simon ,thanks so much for that ,you cheered me up and gave me a kick in the right direction ! I needed it ! Thanks again .
  • Simon - in Reply on Jeremiah 29

    Everyone dislikes theirpredicaments, the constant competition. We've been on trial our whole lives.

    Whatever the jam, it doesn'tmatter to Jesus, except believing He was the son of God who died on the cross for yoursins, and perhaps Matthew 22:36-40, the 2 highest commandments tolive by.

    All along the trail people will nick your gelt, half inch you, surpriseyou with a short sharp shock. Always wear the armour. Show me a saint with an internet connection, and I'll show you a sinner with dereliction.

    Jesus searches theheart to identify family members, He won't have any trouble findingyou.

    Prayer Requests

    I received Jesus as Lord and Savior, at home.

    This is my comment: your beating heart is the Throne that was always meant to belong to the Lord, Jesus. Sometimes when our walk with him gets difficult, or we sin again,

    It's usually because we put ourselves back on that Throne for a moment or until we realize it. Ask for forgiveness and put Jesus back onto the throne of your heart. Read 1 John 1:9

    Start reading about who Jesus is, what he likes and dislikes; how he responded to questions people asked him, what he did, where he went; how and when he prayed, what he prayed for. He is how we are to conform our behaviors to, now.

    I think it is helpful to move next to: 1 John, 2 John and 3 John (near the back of the Bible) next.

    For wisdom: Proverbs

    For comfort & learn what God is like: Psalms

    It's helpful to read 2-3 chapters a day. It's easier to follow stories and movement that way.

    Learn how to use the SEARCH box on this website to access the search engine that will answer many of your questions and curiosity's.

    The Gospel, is the virgin birth of Jesus, his life, his death on the cross for our sins; and his resurrection from the grave.

    At Pentecost, Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to all believers, to be their Teacher, Comforter, convicted when we fall in a ditch, and many more things He helps us with.

    May the Lord guide you in your walk with him. Come back here often and we help all that we can.

    Romans 10:13 says, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."

    That's a promise. You call out to Him and cry out to Him for mercy and to save you, and He will do it, period!

    John 1:12 says, "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:"

    Personally, I like to use the word receive instead of accept, as it says in John 1:12. To accept just means to mentally agree with what Christ did for you. A person must receive Jesus Christ!

    Oh Lisa ,God loves you and your honesty sooo much ! Its a blessing to not be afraid of confessing ,you are showing your faith in Gods mercy and in Christ awesome work on our behalf ,your a star !
  • Sacha - in Reply on Jeremiah 29
    Jesse ,thanks so much for that ,you brought tears to my eyes ,the heart is deceitfull above all things and is desperately wicked ,who can know it ? We must try to know our own heart and recognise our own deceits ,we can fool each other ,we can fool ourselves but we cannot ever fool God ,he knows our end from our begining ,we all are as open books to him ,we must never forget exactly what we are ,i wont say what i know i am but its definately not good ,its a daily battle that we cant ever totally win but we musnt stop trying ,Christ has redeemed us and we are His but He does want us to be as much like Him as we possibly can ,the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak ,thanks again for your encouragement . Much love in Christ .
  • Sacha - in Reply on Jeremiah 29
    Thankyou Unlocked ,you are right ,i think i need to focus more on keeping myself seperate ,i thought i was getting good at it but i realise now that especially during this last year of lockdown i have been turning to a few old wordly habits to comfort me and distract me from my worries , this isnt good ,i need to get back on the straight and narrow and your post has helped me see this ,i got into the habit of turning the t.v. on during the day ,thats stopping now ! I started going on a female social media site for some girl company but there arent too many Christians on it thats for sure ! Thats stops right now ,thankyou again ,i needed your insightfull imput and you have helped clear my mind on a few things more i need to do ,may God continue to bless you .
  • Lisa - in Reply on Jeremiah 29
    Thank you Jesse for your honesty as well.

    I so agree with you that after we are born again and saved by the Atoning Blood of Jesus all sins are wiped away and then when God looks upon us he sees Jesus in us. I too think about that day of the Lord and remember how the Lord told us every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that JESUS IS LORD! What a fearful day for the wicked but a glorious day for the Saints.

    May God bless you as well, especially in these dark days we are in. Our faith will be tried like we have never experienced before and Jesus will carry us all through the storm. Stay faithful and do not fear and cave to the worlds demands. Fear God only not man.

    Our sins are as the East is from the west . Jesus put them away . We should not be concerned about them . God forgives and forgets . And if there is any sin undelt with it needs to be confessed and put away so we can have peace and go on .

    When Christ appears this corruption shall put on incorruption , we shall be changed .

    We will see Jesus without sin . Our hope is to see him but certainly not in our sins .

    When I see him I shall be changed to be like him , I shall love his appearing .

    If sin was a problem I would dread meeting him .

    But Jesus nailed it to his cross and rose from the dead and gives life to those that believe on his work .

    Paul said reckon your self dead to sin and alive unto God . It's by the cross of Christ we can do this . The power of the cross is real . I have overcome many things more powerful than me by trusting in the cross as much as needed to over come the problem .

    Paul said the Cross is to us the power of God .
  • Unlocked - in Reply on Jeremiah 29
    I read what you said about you struggles with your sinful self .

    Yes it's real and you are honest , but you are living a defeated experience, I have a few tips for you , you may consider too help you overcome . I have found very helpful .

    Study what separation from sin is . Where you go who you talk to , what you watch , you must not participate with it or it will defile you . God gets no pleasure in a defiled person . He hopes people will be separated unto him .

    You rarely would hear about this in a church , they do not understand it . Pure religion according to James chapter 1 is to keep your self unspotted from the world . Psalm 1 also talks about this and 1 Corinthians talks about separation from dis honorable vessels in a church setting .

    I hope you get the message , you must be clean from sin as much as possible to have a good relationship with God .

    Our temple must be holy for the lord .

    The word of God cleans us as we meditate on it . So we need it often . Also touching other defiled people or agreeing with errors etc can defile us .

    You can not compromise truth .

    If you spend time studying true separation you will have more desire and success with The Lord . Staying out of sin will make it easier to find the faithful life . Can't do both .

    Gods blessings to you and all that seek to over come .

    Lisa and Sacha,

    I just wanted to say that both your testimonies are a perfect example of humbleness and what it means to be in submission to Christ.

    Oftentimes we let our human pride get in the way and don't want to admit that we are broken vessels in need of mending.

    Even Paul struggled between his flesh and the Spirit of Christ in him, saying that there was nothing good in his flesh.

    But no matter what our past was, Christ forgave us for it. Our sins were nailed to the cross with Him.

    For myself, I truly believe that when I stand before God, I'm going to know that I don't deserve to be there. All my sins are going to be laid out in front of me, and in my case it's probably going to be volumes. What am I going to say? What can we say when we're standing before holiness?

    When we stand before God, He's not going to see any good in us. But what He will see is His Son in us. He's going to see Jesus Christ in us, the one who justified us (Declared us not guilty) the one who sanctified us, and that's how we enter into His presence.

    I think we all can learn from your testimony. I believe the Lord wants those who are willing to confess to Him that they are broken and in need of mending, the person who gets up every morning and says "Lord, I can't do this without you!"

    That should be our confession to our Lord and Savior.

    Thank you both for reminding me that I oftentimes forget what it means to humble myself before the Lord.

    God Bless you both!

    Hello Sacha,

    Thank you for response. I agree with you as well, it is a struggle with our flesh/heart and the only comfort I have is God tells us our flesh and Spirit will battle until we leave this world. The slip ups are so hard on me but Gods grace helps me end my day with his forgiveness and start the next day a new. Hang in there and I will Pray for you :-)
  • Sacha - in Reply on Jeremiah 29
    Lisa ,thankyou so much for your honesty ,i too hate myself and my sinfullness and my cold and selfish heart ,there is no good in me ,i fight my own desires every day ,some times i win some times i loose ,the only thing i take comfort in is the one thing thats shames me most ,God reeeally knows me ,every evil lustfull wordly thought and desire He knows them all and He knows my vileness and HE STILL CARES FOR ME AND ABOUT ME ! God is LOVE and i am evil .
  • Lisa on Jeremiah 29
    According to Gods word we are to seek him and only him with all our hearts. We were created to Love and Worship GOD only, not ourselves! Todays churches teach the Joel Osteen way of love yourself, accept yourself, be yourself etc.this is of satan and why our nation is a huge mess right now because of all the self love and the nurturing of this self love. Self love points to us and not GOD! Satan loved the beauty of who he was and pride entered his heart and he challenged his own creator, sounds familiar doesn't it, it is exactly what man kind has done throughout history and even more so today. There is nothing I love about myself and my sin nature that separated me from GOD. Then GOD showed me his only begotten Son Jesus the Christ and made a way for me to be born again and made new in Jesus Christ. So now I know I am different and do not belong in this current world and I do my best (though I mess up often)to Worship and spend alone time with my GOD. So my testimony is thisI was an adulterous, murdering(abortion), lying, thieving jezebel that desperately needed a Savior and Jesus is my Savior. So as Jeremiah says "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." Jesus is my expected end and everyday I work out my own Salvation with fear and trembling...
  • LACEy on Jeremiah 29:11
    I'vealways felt different. I never was attracted to anyone in a romantic way. Not ever. But i have always loved taking care of animals. I had jobs working with animals. Then i started seeing Jeremiah 29:11 everywhere. I thought it was god's way of telling me that his plans for my life were to have a long-term career working with animals. But those jobs did not last as long as I'd hoped. So now, during this corona virus pandemic, i have been writing in my journal about my own personal memories. Through this process I've uncovered some things about myself that I've always wondered about. Now i realize that this was god's plan for me all along. His plan was for me to find the personal information about my life. Another Bible verse comes to mind. Matthew 7:7. And that's exactly what I'd been doing. I was seeking out information about myself. I was asking myself & god questions about what makes me so different. And suddenly the door was opened wide for me to see the answers to these personal questions I've had about myself. All my life I've wondered & now i have my answers. My prayer is that my story can help someone else who may be feeling different. It's OK to be different no matter what! And it's healthy to accept yourself.
