Jer 32:3 For Zedekiah king of Judah had shut him up, saying, Wherefore dost thou prophesy, and say, Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will give this city into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall take it;
Jer 32:4 And Zedekiah king of Judah shall not escape out of the hand of the Chaldeans, but shall surely be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon, and shall speak with him mouth to mouth, and his eyes shall behold his eyes;
At the time of this prophecy Jer. was in the court prison, he was taken out of the cistern that would have killed him.
Note: prophets have always been treated this was and always will be. When Judgment is declared most do not want to hear it, it scares them, and they are not one of the lords. This King said, 'Why do you prophecy and say, Thus saith the lord, Behold, I will give into the hand of Babylon, and he shall take it'
The reason was because it was a true prophet declaring a true prophecy. He was no soothsayer as the other false prophets.
Next we read, the king will not escape and see the king of Babylon, mouth to mouth and eye to eyes.
This was completed as said. True prophecy that is predictive will always pan out. In the N.T. prophets, only know in part and prophesy in part, in the O.T. everything they said came to pass, or will shortly.
The one thing that is not in part, the one predictive fact is Judgment is coming, this we know. It is at the door, we have already been taken over, and we are already in the judgments. This message will not change, no matter who does not want to believe it.
It will, and could cost you your life, or imprisonment to declare Judgment on the West and esp. America, you will be chased down like an animal. I wrote before if it is not your time you will not be killed. If it is to glory you go.
You may be in a type of prison now, from non- believers that stay away from you, ministers laugh at you, those who have only a political or program agenda, and nothing else, it is all about the amount of people and the money. The famine of the word is in most Churches, this precedes the famine of food.
The holy remnant are not to be in fear. I do not know how many times I have said we are not to be in fear, I preached and wrote on the Christian Plague of fear, it still is growing, people are scared to death, Christian and non Christian and because everyone knows many things are wrong, and they see all the floods, earth quakes, storms , black outs of power and fear grips their heart. The reason the lord allows this is for the purpose of having people run to him for salvation.
We read later in the chapter a truth , that we can claim, as one of Jehovah’s characters, but in this chapter the verse is saying I can do anything I choose.
Jer 32:27 Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?
Jer 32:28 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will give this city into the hand of the Chaldeans, and into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, and he shall take it:
Nothing is to hard for the lord, he can, and will bring judgment no matter how powerful a nation may think it is, the lord can do anything, nothing is to hard for him and to us, this is also a comfort, as we that are his read these words as words of hope and comfort, I do not care how hard your situation seems, how impossible things look , nothing is to hard for our lord, and this includes his watchful eye, protection and sustenance even in famine.
We read in the mix of the doom, a good and sure word.
Jer 32:17 Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:
Jer 32:18 Thou shewest lovingkindness unto thousands, and recompensest the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them: the Great, the Mighty God, the LORD of hosts, is his name,
Jer 32:19 Great in counsel, and mighty in work: for thine eyes are open upon all the ways of the sons of men: to give every one according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings:
Jer 32:20 Which hast set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, even unto this day, and in Israel, and among other men; and hast made thee a name, as at this day;
Verse 17, says again nothing is to hard for thee, in this context it speaks of on going signs and wonders, the lords loving-kindness, that we do not deserve, He is great in counsel, mighty in work, his eye are on us.
Dear reader this plague of fear continues to spread and that is why I keep trying to teach we are not to fear what the pagans fear nor dread their dread, our rock is not like their rock, and what a rock we have. I am attempting once again to bring hope and truth to what is on us, in Judgment, we are not appointed to wrath, we are in faith and hope, as we read who the lord is.
To the unbelieving believers that are in do nothing apostate churches you will be unprepared, you will freak out, you will be paralyzed as you see with your eyes the judgments and the miracles, as said, the lord still speaks.
To many churches are just going about Church as if nothing is happening at all, this amazes me, yet it is still the majority, we are the minority, so be it.
If you cannot due to poverty, the lord himself will feed you in famine, seems impossible, nothing is impossible for our lord; nothing is too hard for him
