May 19, 2014- Jeremiah 13
The Jars Filled with Wine
“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.James 4:7
Chapter 13, “The glory of the Jews should be marred. (1-11) All ranks should suffer misery, An earnest exhortation to repentance. (12-17) An awful message to Jerusalem and its king. (18-27)” – Matthew Henry Concise
Today we prayerfully continue our Feast reading the book of Jeremiah Chapter 13. Jeremiah teaches by signs. Pride soils Judah and Jerusalem; they are being compared (see Jeremiah 13:1-11) to a soiled loincloth. Because they are unrepentant, prideful sinners God filled (see Jeremiah 13:12-17all who lived in this land with drunkenness to bring about sincere repentance. The prophet Jeremiah is saying that their sin is like cancer, (see Jeremiah 13:18-27) and if they will not repent their sin will kill their very souls. “25 This is your lot, the portion I have measured out to you, declares the Lord, because you have forgotten me and trusted in lies. 26 I myself will lift up your skirts over your face, and your shame will be seen. 27 I have seen your abominations, your adulteries and neighings, your lewd whorings, on the hills in the field. Woe to you, O Jerusalem! How long will it be before you are made clean?”“ Jeremiah 13:25-27 English Standard Versions (ESV). This is the wicked man’s portion from God, the heritage decreed for him by God, death, (see Romans 6:23) while the free gift from God is life everlasting. “But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.“ James 3:17-18 ESV. You and I are the ambassadors for Jesus, sober minded, filled with His righteousness, sharing salvation and hope (see 2 Corinthians 5:19-21) with all who will repent and accept God’s gift.
