Jeremiah Chapter 29 Discussion



 
  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Corey,

    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!
  • 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...

    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!

    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 .

    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 .
  • 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 .

    Sacha,

    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.

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

    Dear all. Does anyone know how to read the numbers system in "The table for the order of the Psalmes..."? Every day of the month is with the recommendation of a Psalm, except the number of the Psalm is written as letters: rrrbiii.ribi and so on.

    Legal immigration...LEGAL!. We welcome all who wish to become an American and the first step is to use the LEGAL routes of entry.

    Can I illegally enter God's kingdom? NO. Accepting Jesus Christ as my redeemer gives me legal entry into His kingdom. Without it, I will be cast out where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

    my Q is that,What is the really day of praying.

    is it Saturday or Sunday?
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Jeremiah 29
    Every day is the short answer, But I think you are talking about the gathering together to worship. Jews still use Saturday. Christians use the Lords day Sunday.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Jeremiah 29
    Every day.
  • Pray Without Ceasing - in Reply on Jeremiah 29
    We are to PRAY WITHOUT CEASING.

    1 Thessalonians 5:17

    Pray without ceasing.

    1 Thessalonians 5:25

    Brethren, pray for us.

    (Pray for our ministers that are teaching Gods Word, every day.)

    Matthew 14:23

    And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart TO PRAY: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.

    Matthew 24:20

    But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

    Mark 13:33

    Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

    Luke 6:28

    Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.

    Luke 18:1

    And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;

    >The reason it says pray that your flight be not on the sabbath, is because the Jews can't go over a certain distance. They wouldn't be able to flee to the mountains as another scripture tells us.

    >If we are not living a prayerful lifestyle..we are just fooling ourselves on how spiritual we think ourselves to be. That is Not an accusation.

    If you think that was unkind of me to say that, then go listen to some Charles Stanley sermons on a life of prayer, on YouTube. He teaches on tv every Sunday too.

    Mishael

    Every day should be a day of praying. The day is not the important matter. The important thing is that we have an everlasting relationship with God through Jesus Christ who shed his blood on the cross for our sins and was raised from the dead for our justification.

    Days for worship with others is at our own choosing, whenever we can meet with fellow believers.
  • Pochalla Banak - in Reply on Jeremiah 29
    Hey guy, The real day of the Lord is Sunday.
