This chapter will come to pass after the false Christ sits on Mount Zion claiming to be Christ, and after the time Jesus spoke of in Matthew 24:2 "And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down."
This is also after the time when Satan will be cast from heaven upon the earth, and the elect of God will be delivered up to give witness before the world, as the Holy Spirit will speak through the elect. This is speaking of a time when not only the temple but the city and country will be cleansed completely and made perfect for the rebuilding that shall take place after the second coming of our Lord. This is looking then into the Millennium age, and even past into the eternity.
Jeremiah 32:1 "The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD in the tenth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, which was the eighteenth year of Nebuchadrezzar."
This vision came to Jeremiah the prophet during the time of Zedekiah's reign, before the fall of Jerusalem. The "Nebuchadrezzar" spoken of here is the same person as the Nebuchadnezzar that we are familiar with from Daniel. When Zedekiah and his sons were destroyed, the kings of Judah would have come to an end, except for the transplanting of Zedekiah's daughters by Jeremiah into the king lines of Spain and Ireland. In fact the very stone itself that the kings and queens of early Ireland, and later in Scotland, and now England are crowned on, came from Jerusalem and is called Jacob's pillar.
Jeremiah 32:2 "For then the king of Babylon's army besieged Jerusalem: and Jeremiah the prophet was shut up in the court of the prison, which was in the king of Judah's house."
This word of the Lord came to Jeremiah about two years before the third and final siege of Jerusalem. The third siege is when the final destruction of Jerusalem came. It was at this time that king Zedekiah had Jeremiah in prison in the royal palace in the stockade. Even though Jeremiah was put in prison, Zedekiah did not harm Jeremiah, and even allowed him to teach the Word that God had given him. It was during this teaching of the Word that most of the people made fun what Jeremiah had to say and ridiculed him, but Jeremiah still held to the Word.
This is just like it shall be in our generation, when there shall be a few to hold to the truth of God's Word, when the entire religious world will make fun of what they have to say, and make them out to be some sort of a nut. These elect shall stick to the Word of God boldly, exactly as it is meant from the manuscripts. This writing took place two years before the third siege, and it is an example of what shall happen in this generation. It is a type of what shall happen just before the appearing of the Antichrist, in the book of Revelation.
The documentation for this is I Corinthians 10:11 "Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonitions, upon whom the ends of the world are come." If you have eyes to see it will be understandable to you.
Jeremiah 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;"
King Zedekiah got tired of hearing Jeremiah's prophecy about how the city would fall to the and of Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon. This is as it should be taught today also, though most of the church world is tired of hearing their traditions being attacked. They find security in the fly away doctrines, and just don't want to hear that the king of Babylon of the book of Revelation is coming. This is why they desire to block out the entire book of Revelation, and say it is not written for us to understand.
Friend, the king of Babylon did come, and the city was destroyed exactly as Jeremiah said, historically. This is why we should pay attention to what is going on around us today, for the king of Babylon of Revelation will also come and what is written to you by Jeremiah is an example of how it shall be in the final generation. Just like Nebuchadnezzar was the religious head of all governments, so also will will Satan the Antichrist be the religious head of all governments, when the political beast that now exists falls, and the new religious order takes it place. Satan will claim to be the Messiah, and he shall have the supernatural powers to deceive all men and women that do not have the knowledge of the truths of God's Word.
Revelation 13:11 "And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon."
Horns represent power, and the lamb is Jesus Christ. We know the dragon to be Satan, and the power he has appears to make him look like the lamb.
Revelation 13:12 "And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly would was healed."
When the political beast or system that covers falls apart, upon Satan's coming to earth shortly, it shall be put back together again.
Revelation 13:13 "And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,"
We are told in Revelation 9:1 that Satan, the star will be given his power and authority from God to do what he does. Satan uses this power to test those that are not sealed. Friend, you will see that power and great deception when it happens.
Revelation 13:14 "And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live."
Satan will cause you to worship the religious system that will come over the entire earth by the use of those miracles, and the system will in turn declare him to be the Messiah.
It is going to happen in our generation, and Jeremiah is telling these people and king Zedekiah that the Babylon of his day was going to happen also. Why? Because God declared it to be.
Jeremiah 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;"
The Chaldeans are the Babylonians. Jeremiah is telling king Zedekiah that he is going to meet king Nebuchadnezzer face to face. This is not going to be a spiritual event but a physical face to face eye to eye meeting.
When the false messiah returns, God also assures us that we shall also see him as a man, the entire world shall be delivered into his hands, except for God's elect that shall not be deceived. Satan shall come and even claim to be the true Christ.
Jeremiah 32:5 "And he shall lead Zedekiah to Babylon, and there shall he be until I visit him, saith the LORD: though ye fight with the Chaldeans, ye shall not prosper."
Historically when the Babylonians came against the city of Jerusalem for the third siege, the city fell, and Zedekiah tried to escape. The Chaldeans went after him and took Him captive, and put his eyes out. Though this passage seems to go against Ezekiel 12:13, where it declared "He should not see Babylon" Zedekiah was taken to Babylon a blind man, and his sons killed, so both passages are correct, even though one seems to contradict the other.
King Zedikah did meet face to face with Nebuchadnezzar at Riblah and visually faced the Babylonian king, and saw him face to face and eyeball to eyeball, and then was when His eyes were taken, and sight lost [II Kings 25:6, 7]. After this meeting Zedekiah was taken in bondage to Babylon, where He died. However as a type, recorded for our generation, lets look at this in the futuristic sense.
In other words, the New Word Order is coming and it is a reality today. For those that pay attention, it as been in existence for over fifty years, and is called the United Nations. Every nation of the face of the earth has subscribed to its charters, and the power of its agencies now sets rule and order over its member nations. It is a political system that will fall, and be raised again when the Antichrist, the dragon of Revelation 13 comes to deceive many.
Jeremiah 32:6 "And Jeremiah said, The word of the LORD came unto me, saying,"
Jeremiah is speaking part of the prophecy that God has given to him, and now Jeremiah is going to give us some prophecy that is meaningful to us even today.
Jeremiah 32:7 "Behold, Hanameel the son of Shallum thine uncle shall shall come unto thee, saying, `Buy thee my field that is in Anathoth: for the right of redemption is thine to buy it."
God is telling Jeremiah that his cousin is coming to pay him a visit. This then is a lesson that God is using to show Jeremiah another truth. The field is to be redeemed by Jeremiah, as Jeremiah is the kinsman redeemer with the right of redemption.
Anathoth was in the land of Benjamin, that was a city that was called the priest's city. That is where the priesthood had the to live and own property. So we see that Jeremiah had the right to redeem this property because Jeremiah was the head prophet through this particular reign. The city of Anathoth was located about three miles north of Jerusalem.
Jeremiah 32:8 "So Hanameel mine uncle's son came to me in the court of the prison according to the word of the LORD, and said unto me, Buy my field, I pray thee, that is in Anathoth, which is in the country of Benjamin: for the right of inheritance is thine, and the redemption is thine; buy it for thyself. Then I knew that this was the word of the LORD."
Then I know that this was the word of the Lord."
God told Jeremiah that this would come to pass, and now cousin Hanameel is at the prison exactly as God had said he would. He is saying the words that God told Jeremiah would be said, and Jeremiah know that it is of God. This is a second witness from God; God told me he would come, and here he is saying the words that God said he would say.
Jeremiah 32:9 "And I bought the field of Hanameel my uncle's son, that was in Anathoth, and weighed him the money, even seventeen shekels of silver."
"Seventeen" in Biblical numerics is the "testimony of completeness", or it is our "victory in Christ". There is a symbol within this purchase that shows us that we have that victory in Christ, and it also shows us the completeness that we have in Him. When this title is reclaimed, the completeness of God's plan will be present. God's plan will have been fulfilled.
Jeremiah 32:10 "And I subscribed the evidence, and sealed it, and took witnesses, and weighed him the money in the balances."
Jeremiah signed the bill of sale, and sealed it with witness that were present during the agreement. Jeremiah bought the land honestly, and as required by law.
God is going to give this land to the king of Babylon very shortly, in fact within two years, and Jeremiah knew that the land would become a desolation, and part of Babylon. However, the point made here is that no king or no individual can own land, for God owns it all. A person merely buy the right to control the land for a short time, but when the power structure changes, so does the right of control. We will see that this deed will be seal and buried there in Jerusalem, and I believe that after the second advent, this bottle containing this deed will be found. It will then give the priests of the Zadok the right of inheritance to Anathoth.
Jeremiah 32:11 "So I took the evidence of the purchase both that which was sealed according to the law and custom, and that which was open:"
There were two copies to the deed of ownership of the land.
Jeremiah 32:12 "And I gave the evidence of the purchase unto Baruch the son of Neriah, the son of Maaseiah, in the sight of Hanameel mine uncle's son, and in the presence of the witnesses that subscribed the book of the purchase, before all the Jews that sat in the court of the prison."
Jeremiah gave the deeds to his secretary, Baruch. All the men of Judah that were in that courtyard of the prison witnessed the signing of the deed, the giving of the money, and the witnesses signing of the document. Jeremiah purchased the land in the city of Anathoth, which is the land of the priests.
Jeremiah 32:13 "And I charged Baruch before them, saying,"
Jeremiah 32:14 "Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Take these evidences, this evidence of the purchase, both which is sealed, and this evidence which is open; and put them in an earthen vessel, that they may continue many days."
This documentation which is sealed in this earthen vessel is still contained there and will not be revealed until after this age is completed. This is a land mark that gives the evidence of the priesthood, that the land still belongs to the priest of the Zadok. We read about this in Ezekiel 44.
Jeremiah 32:15 "For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Houses and fields and vineyards shall be possessed again in this land."
This is God was of reassuring His people that though the King of Babylon controls it for a time, the land and possessions will be given back in rightful inheritance at the proper time, within the plan of God. In Jeremiah's day it looks toward the end of that seventy year period when the remnant returned out of Babylon to Jerusalem, However, to us it looks toward that time when Satan the Antichrist's reign is over, and Christ has returned to earth to set up His kingdom. That is when the possession of the land will be retaken in inheritance.
This is looking to the Millennium age, because Jeremiah knew that he would not be there to reclaim the land in this flesh age, and it looks to the later age. We know that time will come, because God told us that as long as we have the sun and moon, and the stars, we could count on His Word being true, and coming to pass. God swore to us that we shall live in this place and it shall be ours.
That time will come, and the land will be rejuvenated and made ready to be occupied. When that comes to pass, then this deed will be revealed. This is God's way of promising you that you are going back, and it is yours, that when you trust Him, there will be nothing that can harm you.
Jeremiah 32:16 "Now when I had delivered the evidence of the purchase unto Baruch the son of Neriah, I prayed unto the LORD, saying,"
This is Jeremiah's prayer.
Jeremiah 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:"
Jeremiah is saying there is nothing hidden from God.
Jeremiah 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,"
God has done this already, He has showed His kindness and care for His people.
Jeremiah 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:"
You are aware of everything that we do and think, God, and you are fair in all your ways and judgments.
Jeremiah 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;"
God has set signs around the world to show his handiwork, not just in the land of Egypt and Israel. That sacred name that God has taken; "I AM THAT I AM", makes God available to all men, in however He appears to them. He never changes.
Jeremiah 32:21 "And hast brought forth thy people Israel out of the land of Egypt with signs, and with wonders, and with a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with great terror;"
I Corinthians 15:52 "In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed."
The time of this instant change, and the shedding of all human flesh, is at the last trump, the seventh trumpet. Satan the antichrist comes on the sound of the sixth trump, that is the sixth seal and the thunder. Satan's number is 6 - 6 - 6. Christ comes on the seventh trump. Then instantly, at the wink of an eye all flesh shall be changed.
Incorruptible means your new body will never age, nor get sick. There will be no death during the Millennium age, for this is what age you will be in them. It is not just the Elect of God that are changed but all souls in the human flesh. Satan and his fallen angels will be removed at this time.
I Corinthians 15:53 "For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality."
Remember from verse 50? Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God. Jesus Christ will be on earth and the Millennium age will be here then. This is what Ezekiel 40-48 is all about. It is the time of the kingdom of God.
Those of the elect that stood up to Satan and were sealed in their mind will receive their immortality then. "Mortal" means "liable to die". The new bodies of the soul of the Elect, and those that loved the lord before the coming of the Antichrist will have their immortal body here and now at the start of this Millennium age. Those that bowed to the Antichrist will make it the hard was, they will earn it by their works in the Millennium age, for that is what they will be judged by at the great white throne judgment following the Millennium age. The documentation for this was given earlier from Revelation 20:11-15.
Revelation 20:13 "And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them; and they were judged every man according to their works."
The sea is the one world kingdom of the earth, and the dead are the spiritually dead, that that have not received their immortality until after the Millennium age, and the great white throne judgment.
I Corinthians 15:54 "So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, "Death is swallowed up in victory."
Friend, this is the most joyful time for all souls, for this is the time after the great white throne judgment and all souls living then will have incorruptible and immortal souls, it is truly a time of victory. We will live forever more with our heavenly Father, for all offices of the God head will be present at that time.
Those that refused to love and worship Jesus and His Word, and were judged not worthy will be in the lake of fire, and even the thought of them will be removed from your mind. You may have lived with a spouse for fifty years, and if that soul rejected the Lord and died the spiritual death, which is the second death, it will be as if that soul was never created.
God is one that restores, and in the Millennium age He will restore order to Jerusalem. God does not will anyone to be sent to hell, and that correction is what the Millennium age is all about. It is a time of correction, and discipline, when all souls will be in their incorruptible body, and no handicap, or mental or family problem will distract you from this time. God loves you, my friend, and you will learn of that love from His Word now, or under discipline in the next age.
Jeremiah 32:22 "And hast given them this land, which thou didst swear to their fathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey;"
Jeremiah 32:23 "And they came in, and possessed it; but they obeyed not thy voice, neither walked in thy law; they have done nothing of all that thou commandedst them to do: therefore thou hast caused all this evil to come upon them:
Jeremiah 32:24 "Behold the mounts, they are come unto the city to take it; and the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans, that fight against it, because of the sword, and of the famine, and of the pestilence: and what thou hast spoken is come to pass; and, behold, thou seest it."
Jeremiah 32:25 "And thou hast said unto me, O Lord GOD, Buy thee the field for money, and take witnesses; for the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans."
This verse has an interesting twist, for Jeremiah could be calling attention to the fact that God gave him instructions to buy land with the seventeen pieces of silver, and now these Chaldeans have come and taken the land that you told me to buy. Jeremiah didn't say that. That is the way that modern man of today would think.
Jeremiah had the insight to look into the future, and he saw the prophetic truth that God was showing him. There was a time coming when the field would be returned and claimed as an inheritance. God gave a positive promise that there was as time when he would be coming back, and then he would take possession of what was rightfully his. God told us a few chapters back that at His return the people will not talk about the evil that came upon the earth, but they will be talking about the wonderful way that I cleansed the earth.
There is no one that can straighten out the world situation we are in today, and the things are only going to get worse. The new generation of youth have no respect, because they have not been taught God's ways, but there are few that do have their eyes open. This is an exciting time to live, as we see the signs of the end times coming to pass. Even as the dead sea scrolls were found, and the time is coming when these writings, the deed to Anathoth purchased by Jeremiah will also be found.
Jeremiah 32:26 "Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah, saying,"
This starts a different thought.
Jeremiah 32:23 "Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?"
God is the God of all flesh, of all mankind and of all races. It even includes the animal kingdom, for God made all flesh. The answer to this question is "of course not", in that God created all flesh, he can use Nebuchadnezzar to chastise His own people as He wills. This applies to our generation as much as Jeremiah's generation.
Jeremiah 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:"
In a prophetic sense also Satan shall be kicked out of heaven onto the earth, along with his fallen angels, and they shall reign as God also said they would in Revelation 13:9. Remember that what happened in Jeremiah's day were examples as to what we shall see before and during the time of the reign of Antichrist.
Jeremiah 32:29 "And the Chaldeans, that fight against this city, shall come and set fire on this city, and burn it with the houses, upon whose roofs they have offered incense unto Baal, and poured out drink offerings unto other gods, to provoke me to anger."
God, through His son looks upon His children in the sense of a bride and the bridegroom. When the bride oversteps her bounds of commitment, the bridegroom can become very jealous. Especially when someone is messing around with His virgin bride to be. This is exactly what Satan does when he comes to earth to deceive those Christians, and Jesus tells us in Matthew 24:37, 39 "But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."
The destruction came to all those that were unfaithful to our Heavenly Father in their practice of idolatry, and the deception of our time will come to those that also are wrapped up in all forms of idolatry. God is letting us know His feelings towards those they think can fool around with all sorts of idolatry, and traditions, and think they are worshipping God "in their own way". Friend, you worship God as He set forth in His plan, and not by the imaginations of your own heart. However, when you worship and study to prepare yourself for the deception coming, God will take care of you and open your eyes to the signs of our times, and you will know them when they happen.
Jeremiah 32:30 "For the children of Israel and the children of Judah have only done evil before me from their youth: for the children of Israel have only provoked me to anger with the work of their hands, saith the LORD."
The children of both houses, the House of Israel, the ten tribes known today as the Christian nations, and the House of Judah, the Jews with both Judah and Benjamin, and a mixture of the oriental kenites mixed with them from the the days of Solomon are mentioned here. The entire tribes of Israel from the coming out of Egypt about 1543 B.C., to the final scattering of Judah about 500 B.C. have provoked God to anger. It seems that every thing they do is trying to create some better way to worship, and find a better way to relieve their guilt for their sins.
The almighty Father is God, and there is no other way better than the way He has provided through the shed blood of His son, Jesus Christ. All wisdom comes from God, and man doesn't work for a better way, but we should strive to understand His way, as recorded in His Word. It is just natural that we should love our Heavenly Father for He is the one that created our very soul and spirit. He is our next of kin.
Jeremiah 32:31 "For this city hath been to me as a provocation of mine anger and of my fury from the day that they built it even unto this day; that I should remove it from before my face,"
When the final trumpet sounds the entire city of Jerusalem shall be leveled to nothing but sand, then God will purify the entire city of the evil that shall occupy it. Satan will have sat on the throne in Jerusalem and committed the most abominable thing one could commit, He shall claim himself to be God, which is the Abominable thing one could commit, He shall claim himself to be God, which is the Abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel in Daniel 9:27. Jesus also spoke of it in Matthew 24:15; "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the Prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)"
Satan will destroy everything that is holy and of God, and the men and women of the earth simply will not know the difference. Only God's elect will know what is going on at the time. Then the city and the Temple of Christ shall be rebuilt once the Millennium Age begins.
Jeremiah 32:32 "Because of all the evil of the children of Israel and of the children of Judah, which they have done to provoke me to anger, they, their kings, their princes, their priests, and their prophets, and the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem."
Notice that God is still keeping both the houses separate during this time, for it is not into the Millennium age at this point. This is the time of the end spoken of here, and just like the time prior to the fall of Jerusalem in Jeremiah's day. These sinful acts will be common for everyone from the king and leaders of the church to the men and women on the street. They all will believe that they are safe in the idolatries that they are in, because their false prophets and traditions tell them it is so, and that the king of Babylon is not coming.
God is pointing out here that both the government, the religious community and the community itself will be bound by their traditions to provoke Him. I remind you that Jerusalem is a real special place to our Heavenly Father, and the people today are messing around with God's emotions. That is why it becomes important for us to watch what takes place in Jerusalem, especially from this day forth.
Jeremiah 32:33 "And they have turned unto me the back, and not the face: though I taught them, rising up early and teaching them, yet they have not hearkened to receive instruction."
God has sent teachers, priests and good just people in the community to warn them, and they will not listen, but all turn their backs on God. They love their traditions over God's Word, and that is what is going to make them so open to accepting the false Messiah, because they just will not study to know the difference. God loves His children, and from the beginning of time, when His children have strayed, God sent His prophets to warn them, and they just didn't want to hear the warnings. It seems that they have to suffer the pain before God could get their attention. Time after time, just like Jeremiah, the messenger bringing the message is mocked by all the people.
Jeremiah 32:33 "But they set their abominations in the house, which is called by my name, to defile it."
God's house is in Jerusalem, and it was the temple in Jeremiah's day. It is the religious leaders at the top that set forth the abominations and made all short cuts to God's Word, as they inject their own tradition. They allow their imaginations rule in place of the way set forth in God's Word. We saw the results of this in Jesus day, when the mite infested birds were sold and used as blood sacrifices of the sins, instead of using the clean pure animals and birds as spoken of in Leviticus. Christ took a cat of nine tails whip to drive them out. However, the next time around Christ will level the entire temple, city of Jerusalem, as well as the evil ones doing their deeds there.
Jeremiah 32:35 "And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin."
The "valley of the son of Hinnom" is the garbage pit right outside the gate that had it's fire's burning twenty four hours a day. Christ used this garbage pit as a symbol of Hell. God is comparing this to their practice of building the high places of Baal and the fire that they burned their children unto Molech. This form of religious practice offered their own children as a sacrifice to God, and God is saying that He never told you to do it. The thought of this never entered God's mind.
God is a loving Father and He doesn't like it when you tell your children that God will burn them in hell. That is a form of Molech worship. Never use the threat of God burning them in hell to correct a child. Friend that is the practice of the worship of Molech. You are building your high places of Baal, and God doesn't like it and He will hold you accountable for such words. There is not a burning hell in the time of the Millennium age, for the time of judgment comes after the Millennium Age, after the time of one thousand years of teaching and discipline.
Then comes the time of the great white throne of judgment, when all will be judged according to their works. Then those that have not repented of their sins in Jesus name, believed on Him, and have not bowed a knee to the Antichrist, or taken the Antichrist's name or number will be judged. It is proper to threaten a murder of hell fire, but not a child. Correct a child with the love of God, showing His tender care and mercy. Show the child that God is a forgiving God, and when you do something wrong and sin, that is the time to take it to Him and repent. That child is not yours to keep, but God has given that child to you on loan and he expects you to teach him or her to have respect of Him.
Jeremiah 32:36 "And now therefore thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning this city, whereof ye say, It shall be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence;"
This is concerning Jerusalem. We know that the sword of the Lord is God's Word, and the famine for the end times is not for the bread we eat, but for the hearing of the Word of God.
Jeremiah 32:37 "Behold, I will gather them out of all countries, whither I have driven them in mine anger, and in my fury, and in great wrath; and I will bring them again unto this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely:"
This has not happened yet, and it is spelled out why the deed was necessary. We remember in 1948 when some of Judah returned to establish their tiny nation Israel, and there was some bloodshed. However, the full fury of God's wrath will not come to Jerusalem until after the Antichrist has reigned from Jerusalem, and he has killed the two prophets in the wide place [arena] in Jerusalem. This will be a major time of celebration, and Revelation 11:10 points out;
Revelation 11:10 "And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth."
Revelation 11:11 "And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them."
Friend, it is at this time that the full fury of God will come down on all men on the face of the earth, except for God's elect, for they shall be rejoicing and praising God. This is their time of rewards and the gift of immortal and eternal life that they shall receive. It is this time that Jesus Christ will collect His elect from around the world, and gather them to himself, not in the sky, but in Jerusalem, where the new kingdom of Jesus Christ will be ruled from.
Jeremiah 32:38 "And they shall be my people, and I will be their God:"
God loves those that love Him, and when you tell Him that you love Him, He will bless you. God is looking forward to the gathering of His elect even more that we in the human flesh can understand. In that day when Christ returns, we shall be His people and He shall be our God. It kind of says it all, doesn't it.
This will be a wonderful time, for all those that will be around then will be desiring to learn and keep His Word. They will love the laws and commandments of God, and there will be no threat from any force. all evil forces, and evil elements will be separated from us then. This is the Millennium age, and the greed and much of the evil that is established by the wants of the flesh will not be here. Why? All will be in the spirit body, this is after the close of this flesh age. Paul talks about this in 1 Corinthians 15:
1 Corinthians 15:50 "Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption."
Flesh and blood is "corruption", for these earthly bodies get sick and age. When Christ comes to earth at the last trump, He comes to set up His kingdom. You cannot live in the Millennium age in your flesh and blood body, and this is why the change must come.
1 Corinthians 15:51 "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,"
Paul is going to show us a mystery hidden from the foundation of this earth age. This mystery is the fact that a time is coming when those living in the flesh and bloody body will note die, but instantly all human flesh will be changed instantly to their spirit (also called soul body) or they will not be existing on this earth.
1 Corinthians 15:52 "In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed."
The time of this instant change and the shedding of all human flesh is at the last trump; the seventh trumpet. Satan the Antichrist comes on the sounding of the sixth trump, that is the sixth seal and the thunder. Satan's number is 6 - 6 - 6. Christ comes on the seventh trump. Then instantly the wink of an eye all flesh shall be changed.
"Incorruptible" means your new body will never age, nor get sick. There will be no death during the Millennium Age, for this each soul will be in a mature state and never age during that period of time. It is not just the Elect of God that are changed, but all souls living in their human flesh body at the sounding of the seventh trumpet. Satan and his fallen angels will be removed at this time.
1 Corinthians 15:53 "For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality."
Remember from verse 50? Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God. Jesus Christ will be on earth and the Millennium age will be here then. This is what Ezekiel 40-48 is all about. It is the time of the kingdom of God.
Those of the elect that stood up to Satan and were sealed in their mind will receive their "immortality" then. "Mortal" means "liable to die". The new bodies of the soul of the Elect, and those that loved the Lord before the coming of the Antichrist will have their immortal body here and now at the start of this Millennium age. Those bowed to the Antichrist will make it the hard way, they will earn it by their works in the Millennium age, for that is what they will be judges by at the great white throne judgment following the Millennium age. The documentation for this was given earlier from Revelation 20:11-15.
Revelation 20:13 "And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works."
The sea is the one world kingdom of the earth, and the dead are the spiritually dead, those that have not not received their immortality until after the Millennium age, and the great white throne judgment.
1 Corinthians 15:54 "So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory."
Friend, this is the most joyful time for all souls, for this is the time after the great white throne judgment and all souls living then will have incorruptible and immortal souls, it is truly a time of victory. We will live forever more with our Heavenly Father, for all offices of the God head will be present at that time. Those that refused to love and worship Jesus and His Word, and were judged not worthy will be in the lake of fire, and even the thought of them will be removed from your mind. You may have lived with a spouse for fifty years, and if that soul rejected the Lord and died the spiritual death, which is the second death, it will be as if that soul was never created.
God is one that restores, and in the Millennium age He will restore order to Jerusalem. God does not will that anyone be sent to hell, so the correction is what the Millennium age is all about. It is a time of correction, and discipline, when all souls will be in their incorruptible body, and no handicap, or mental or family problem to distract you from this time. God loves you my friend, and you will learn of that love from His Word now, or under discipline in the next age.
Jeremiah 32:39 "And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me for ever, for the good of them, and of their children after them:"
"Heart" as used here is "mind". In that Millennium age all children of God will have a mind to learn and worship God. At the sound of the seventh trumpet, all souls will bend a knee to Christ, which means that they will worship Him. The only way that God's children will follow will be the way of Jesus Christ. They will revere Christ or they will not be an earth, because they will be removed. What has happened and what is going to happen is going to happen for our own good.
Jeremiah 32:40 "And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put My fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart form Me."
God is promising that in the time He will make a everlasting covenant with all of His children, and every thing in that Covenant will be for their own good. This is future looking to the Millennium age, and this is what your inheritance is, that God will be with you forever and He will place that desire to be with Him in your heart. You will be drawn to His love.
Jeremiah 32:41 "Yea, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will plant them in this land assuredly with My whole heart and with My whole soul.' "
God will replant His people in the very land that He is talking about destroying. This did happen historically after the seventy years of captivity in Babylon, and it shall happen again after the time of the Antichrist, and the sounding of the seventh trumpet. This statement is made by our Heavenly Father, and the commitment is made with His entire heart and soul. You can count on it friend. He swears it by Himself. This is why it is important that you tell Him that you love Him, and try to study His Word and serve Him today. What ever you do is for the positive, and when God corrects you, it shows His love for you.
Jeremiah 32:42 "For thus saith the Lord; `Like as I have brought all this great evil upon this people, so will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised them."
God is telling you, that just as He has allowed the evil to come upon these people for their sins, so also will He bring the Good that He has committed to you. Again you can count on it.
Jeremiah 32:43 "And fields shall be bought in this land, whereof ye say, `It is desolate without man or beast; it is given into the hand of the Chaldeans.' "
Lets move this to the future sense. When Satan and his angels are here deceiving the world and ruling over it with their new world order, it may look to you that it is desolate and without hope. However friend, this is the time to wake up and work in the field. This is the time to get ready for our Redeemer is soon to come. There is only a five month count down, and in the last three and a half days, you can count the last 84 hours. While the world is celebrating over the death of the true prophets that Satan the Antichrist killed, you know that life will come into them in 84 hours, and instantly it is all over.
Remember God gave the order to Satan in Revelation 9:4 to harm not those with the seal of God in their forehead, and now these two prophets were killed by this false Christ, and that marked the end for him. We are going to have the victory over the Babylonians, and they are the forces of Satan and his entire system. We will have a part in the restoration of the New Jerusalem, and this great world. What a time to live.
Jeremiah 32:44 "Men shall buy fields for money, and subscribe evidences, and seal them, and take witnesses in the land of Benjamin, and in the places about Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah, and in the cities of the mountians, and in the cities of the valley, and in the cities or the south: for I will cause their captivity to return, saith the Lord."
Subscribe evidences in a legal sense means to have deeds written out for the possessions that you have. Remember the land of Benjamin is where Anathoth is, the land of the priests, where Jeremiah took a deed legally for the future time when all the children of Israel would return to Israel. God is saying all this to let us know that though He gives it to Babylon, at a future date we will reclaim it completely. The land will be restored, and God is swearing by His own Self, His mind and Soul.
This verse refers to Revelation 13:10 "He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints."
It is telling us that what you do in the time of the great deception, the great tribulation sets your own sentence. You can be held captive by Almighty God, or Heavenly Father, or you can become a captive of the false Messiah, and be taken by his system. You can fall to the point of losing your own soul. This is why it is important to remain in His Word, especially through the time of the great famine for truth that Amos spoke about in Amos 8:11.
Our Heavenly Father is good, and the covenant that He has made with us is good, and he sealed it with his own heart and Soul. It is absolute, and signed with the blood of Jesus Christ. You can begin enjoying those blessing today, and have the peace that only God can give, when you lay your sins upon Christ, through repentance, and your belief in Jesus Christ. Why would you go alone, when Christ will take your load upon His yoke and lighten your burdens of life.
