May 29, 2014- Jeremiah 23
The Lord Is Our Righteousness
“32 I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.”Luke 5:32
Chapter 23; “The restoration of the Jews to their own land. (1-8) The wickedness of the priests and prophets of Judah, The people exhorted not to listen to false promises. (9-22) The pretenders to inspiration threatened. (23-32) Also the scoffers at true prophecy. (33-40)” – Matthew Henry Concise
Today we prayerfully continue our Feast reading the book of Jeremiah Chapter 23. God promises to restore the lands of His people who declare; (see Jeremiah 23:1-8) “The Lord is our righteousness”. God is angry with the lying Prophets who proclaim that (see Jeremiah 23:9-22) It shall be well with those who do evil and deny God. False prophets share the deceit of their own heart (see Jeremiah 23:23-32) luring God’s people to false gods and destruction. The rewards of false prophet, or priest and those who follow them are (see Jeremiah 23:33-40) to be destroyed along with their false gods; “39 therefore, behold, I will surely lift you up and cast you away from my presence, you and the city that I gave to you and your fathers. 40 And I will bring upon you everlasting reproach and perpetual shame, which shall not be forgotten.“ Jeremiah 22:30 English Standard Versions (ESV). How can we know if a prophet is from God? Hold their words and works up to the light of God’s Word (see 1 John 4:1) do those works bring Glory to God. Look to see if they are behavior has good results (see Matthew 7:15-20) results that bring glory to God today and in the eternal life. “17 But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children, 18 to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.” Psalm 103:17-18 ESV. Our righteousness is in Jesus (see Philippians 3:8-10) and not of ourselves.
