Morning Light – Jeremiah 13 Today: [Jeremiah 13] The Dirty Underwear Prophecy! In this chapter, God tells Jeremiah to wear an unwashed undergarment until it is so soiled it is good for nothing.

Would you be capable of obeying God in some distasteful way should He require it of you? This chapter sets a precedent that God can and does often call upon us to engage in the difficult … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – Jeremiah 12 Today: [Jeremiah 12] Where Does Responsibility Lie? In this chapter, Jeremiah cries out to God that He would have mercy upon the people. The Babylonians have descended, the cities of Judah are being taken one by one. Jeremiah complains to God that wickedness is triumphing over the Lord’s heritage. God’s response to Jeremiah is that the people have set themselves against Him and therefore enmity exists between the Father and the people. Going on to emphasis where the responsibility lies the Father gives an indictment against the leaders of the people, “many pastors” who are … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – May 2nd, 2017 – Jeremiah 11:  Is Repentance Necessary?

Morning Light – Jeremiah 11 Today: [Jeremiah 11] Is Repentance Necessary? In Jeremiah 11 we find the prophet declaring the people excluded from the favor of God because of disobedience. They had generationally drifted from the pure worship of Jehovah in to widespread idolatry and external dependencies. What about today? A demand of obedience implies the existence of an expectation upon our lives on God’s part toward us. What does obedience look like in the New Testament? Is the only requirement to simply be sincere in our love for God or are there specific expectations that dictate a turn (repentance) … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light –  May 1st, 2017 – Jeremiah 10:  The Idolatry of Man’s Wisdom

Morning Light – Jeremiah 10 Today: [Jeremiah 10] The Idolatry of Man’s Wisdom. In this chapter, Jeremiah minutely describes the idols and pagan altars that the people of God have substituted for worship of the one true God. He describes their construction and the materials from which they were formed, declaring them unable to speak, see or hear. The pagan priests of ancient times were very adept at convincing others that their statues and figures of Baal, and Ashteroth were living things. What about our day? If you were under the influence of what amounted to an idol would you … (click link or title to continue)

Did you lose all composure and simply let loose and vented your frustration, grief or anger? Then this chapter is for you.

Morning Light –  April 27th, 2017 – Jeremiah 8:   The Aftermath of Judgment

Morning Light – Jeremiah 8 Today: [Jeremiah 8] The Aftermath of Judgment. In this chapter Jeremiah, almost against his will continues seeing by the Spirit the aftermath of the Babylonian invasion. The Babylonians not only destroy the temple and sack Jerusalem, but dig up the bones of the kings of the line of David and desecrate them before the pagan altars of the gods that these kings worshipped in idolatry. In the midst of this dark picture the question continually put by the Spirit of God speaking through Jeremiah, emphasizes how utterly unnecessary all this is – if the people … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – April 26th, 2017 – Jeremiah 7:  Are You Living in Presumption

Morning Light – Jeremiah 7 Today: [Jeremiah 7] Are You Living in Presumption? In this chapter, Jeremiah reproves the people for presuming they will never be held in account because they are of Jewish lineage. In this chapter, we find the verse that Jesus quoted when He cleansed the temple. That very fact renders this very neglected admonition by Jeremiah extremely relevant to us today as we consider and ask the question are we as Christians presuming upon our inheritance as believers to make excuses for lax or sinful lifestyles?

Morning Light – April 24th, 2017 – Jeremiah 5:  Seeking Judgment and Truth

Morning Light – Jeremiah 5 Today: [Jeremiah 5] Seeking Judgment and Truth. In chapter 5 of Jeremiah the Father excoriates the city of Jerusalem because there cannot be found in it one man that executes judgment or seeks the truth. For us seeking the truth means something somewhat different than what it does from a New Testament perspective. It is important for us to understand this because just as Jerusalem was under the shadow of impending destruction for not seeking truth or executing judgment so we ourselves stand in jeopardy if we fail to respond to the heart of God … (click link or title to continue)
