Be Fair. Do Right. Help Rescue Others.

A strong warning to the King’s of Judah..I think we can glean something from this:

RESCUE SWIMMER  ( FOR RELEASE)This is what the  lord  said to me: “Go over and speak directly to the king of Judah. Say to him,  ‘Listen to this message from the  lord , you king of Judah, sitting on David’s throne. Let your attendants and your people listen, too.  This is what the  lord  says: Be fair-minded and just. Do what is right! Help those who have been robbed; rescue them from their oppressors. Quit your evil deeds! Do not mistreat foreigners, orphans, and widows. Stop murdering the innocent!  If you obey me, there will always be a descendant of David sitting on the throne here in Jerusalem. The king will ride through the palace gates in chariots and on horses, with his parade of attendants and subjects.  But if you refuse to pay attention to this warning, I swear by my own name, says the  lord , that this palace will become a pile of rubble.’” Jeremiah 22:1-5

The Lord expects us to be fair..do right..obey..help..rescue..

And He commands us to quit evil and not to mistreat ANYONE..

Then He makes promises.

Then He keeps promises.

I want to be on the right side of those promises.

    Dude! What did God always do to Israel and Judah right before His judgment fell on them? He gave them a bad leader! All of our leaders since the 60’s have had some issues that caused us to question them….and yes, even our beloved Reagan wrote some executive orders that made me do a double take. But now, the current administration?!??!! After 9/11, then the market crash of 2008 and now this administration, I have a feeling God is just about done warning America. I believe “the line has been stretched” across this nation. Get on your knees. Ask God what is your role to play in the “net phase” of this country. Things are going to get very bad and yet God has a plan for His people and true Christ followers will rise and to quote Daniel 12:3 – LEAD THE MANY TO RIGHTEOUSNESS!!! That is what we are here for people!!!!
    Thanks for the post Trey!

    • Yes sir..I believe that regardless of our political landscape, we, as believers, are called to reach the world. Disciple those around us. And GO to those in need of a Savior. Since we are not Israelites, I don’t know how much I would compare America to the “chosen” people to whom most of these prophesies in Jeremiah are intended for. But I DO know we can glean MUCH from these passages and see that God is faithful to keep His promises. And a healthy fear of the Lord is a GOOD thing for all believers.

        By any chance, have you read The Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn and/or read anything about the next 4 blood moons? If you put the two together and get yourself a Hebrew calendar, the series of coincidences (Godincidences) in the past 12 years and the ones coming up in the next two years indicate that “things” are about to get REAL. We are now living in Toccoa and we are trying to get our new church family fired up to start a revival up here! PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW JESUS!!!! Keep writing Trey! I enjoy these post immensely!

          Revelation 13 people, Revelation 13. In the life of the church there will be political/ government powers that will rise up and oppress the church. America is rapidly becoming the beast that is described in Revelation. The role that the church plays in this is to stand up, persevere, be persecuted for Christ, and know that Christ, and therefore the church, has already won in the end. The path is laid out for those who are willing to overcome. The church right now in America has two choices: It can stand up and be who Christ is to the world, or it can dumb itself down for the sake of the world and because of external pressures from the world. It can run from persecution, or it can face it. Unless a great revival happens here, which is completely possible, this is unnavoidable.
