This chapter is an extension of the last chapter thirty two.
Jeremiah 33:1 "Moreover the word of the Lord came unto Jeremiah the second time, while he was yet shut up in the court of the prison, saying,"
King Zedekiah still has Jeremiah in jail for his prophesying what God told him to say.
Jeremiah 33:2 "Thus saith the LORD the maker thereof, the LORD that formed it, to establish it; the LORD is his name;"
In the manuscripts, the word "Lord" as used here, is the sacred name "YHVH".
Jeremiah 33:3 "Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not."
This is why it is important that you tell our Heavenly Father that you love Him. Call on Him, and when you do, pay attention and see how His Spirit will open your understand to His Word, and do His work in your life. Pray for wisdom, and ask Him for the truths of the "mighty things", which is "the hidden things" to be revealed to you. When you talk to our Lord, you talk to Him in a natural way, like you would a friend. Many people feel that when they talk to the Lord that have to be in a certain religious mode, and use all the right words. Friend, God understands your thoughts before you even form them, but it is you that must express them in your own mind.
God has already placed the hidden things in His Word, the Scriptures, and when we ask for the wisdom to understand those hidden meanings, then understanding comes together. Verses start to relate to one another, and they start to apply to our lives. But there is a condition here, and that is if you will call unto me, and ask me. Anytime you have the word "LORD" in the King James, that means in the manuscripts it is the Sacred name of God, "YHVH", and you are to call on the Father, in Jesus name.
Jeremiah 33:4 "For thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning the houses of this city, and concerning the houses of the kings of Judah, which are thrown down by the mounts, and by the sword;"
God is again telling Jeremiah to remind the king and all the people of Jerusalem, as well as in the land of Judah that the king of Babylon is coming and the mounts, or war wagons are going to burn down your houses. The Hebrew is more specific on the spiritual thought within this, and states: The rubble of your houses, as you have torn them down to make your defense, they will be your defense.
When we take this to our generation as a type of what shall happen, there are many things that this does apply to. As an example of this, When the king of Babylon of our times, Satan the Antichrist is at the gate of Jerusalem, they take the house of God as their defense, but through their traditions, those traditions accepted will become their spiritual death. Remember that the rubble of these houses in Jeremiah's day shot into flames, when the war wagons toss their flames over the wall. The false teachings and traditions that have been established to protect the Christian from Satan, the Antichrist will actually be the flame to deceive and destroy them spiritually, right in the church houses.
Spiritual death is what the apostasy brings about, and that is when you give up your professed belief in the true Christ, and begin worshipping the false Christ thinking he is the True Christ. You also substitute foreign ideas and thought for the Scriptures, and think that these new ideas are of God. You do this in ignorance. The church houses themselves are used to do this, and that is your most personal place, your habitation, and this is where the flame of destruction will strike first.
Jeremiah 33:5 "They come to fight with the Chaldeans, but it is to fill them with the dead bodies of men, whom I have slain in mine anger and in my fury, and for all whose wickedness I have hid my face from this city."
It is because all the people have chosen to go against God's way and instructions that the destruction will come upon them. Because of this turning away from God they will lose everything. Those that chose to fight it became the dead bodies that were stacked at the gates, when the Babylonian army exercised the wrath and fury that God placed with in them.
Looking to the future to our generation, when the Antichrist appears, and sets up his spiritual army to do battle with all mankind, God will give Him the authority to do with mankind as He pleases, except the only ones that are taboo for Satan, are God's Elect. Revelation 9:1-4 lays out the limits of Satan's authority.
Revelation 9:1 "And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit." The fifth trumpet sounds in this earth age, and it announces that the time of the Antichrist, Satan is about to be thrown to earth. We are in this time now. It was God that is going to give Satan the key, or authority to do what he is about to do, because just like Nebuchadnezzar, Satan will do the correcting for God. Included in that authority, is the permission to use his fallen angels in the work of his deceptions.
Revelation 9:2 "And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit."
The smoke that is released is the deception and false teaching that will cover the earth to deceive those with out the seal of God in their minds. The seal is the Word of God.
Revelation 9:3 "And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth; and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power."
This locust army that is coming upon the earth, is the same locust army that Joel speaks of in Joel 1, that comes to devour all the pastures, which is the truths of God's Word. Friend, at Satan's coming with his angels, you will either be sealed, or not, for all spiritual truths will be only in the minds sealed away in God's elect at that time.
Revelation 9:4 "And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads."
This is important to understand, because God's orders to the Antichrist, who is Satan, is that he can do what ever he desires to all mankind, except he is to leave those that have God's seal in their foreheads alone. Touch not mine elect.
Friend, when the Babylonian army went against Jerusalem in Jeremiah's day, there was complete destruction, and even the houses that were dismantled to give protection burned. However the warfare of the end times that we face is not physical, and in a field, but in the minds of Christians. The weapons used are words and concepts, using ideas even from the Word of God, twisted to sound so real and spiritual. The battle is of deception, miracles, and wonders that if possible would even fool the elect: but is not possible. Why? Because the elect of God will have the seal [Word] of God in their minds which is their foreheads.
If you fall for Satan's tricks, it is spiritual death, and when Jesus returns at the seventh trumpet, He will tell you to get out of His sight, for He never knew you. You will be a spiritual harlot before His eyes, not part of His virgin bride to take place in the marriage. There will be many people deceived that are walking on the earth today because they have not been taught God's plan, and they will get in His way. This is the same thing that happened in Jeremiah's day, and God was angry with them.
Jeremiah 33:6 "Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth."
This looks forward to the future. Remember from an earlier chapter, there will be a time coming when a cure will come, and that will be at the second coming of Christ. It will be the starting of the Millennium age. Then a health and cure will come and it is because the flesh body is shed, and we continue on in the incorruptible body. When Christ establishes his Millennium kingdom, there will be true peace and truth on earth.
Keep in mind that in that kingdom age, God will heal those that God placed the spirit of slumber upon during this flesh age, when Satan the Antichrist reigned upon the earth, over all mankind. Remember in the fifth verse, God said; "I caused them to die because of My fury." In the spiritual sense, it is also God that causes the spirit of slumber to come over an individual, and close their minds to being sealed with understanding the times.
God said in Romans 11:7 "What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded" This is referring to our generation, and Israel is the Christian people. The Election are the "Elect", that we read of in Revelation 9:4.
Romans 11:8 "(According as it is written, "God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear"; unto this day." That friend or loved one that just can't understand what you say, when you try to tell them what truths the Spirit of God has revealed to you, is under this spirit of slumber, and only God can remove that spirit.
We can still plant seeds, and water those seeds with prayer, but is God's Spirit that makes it grow, if it is to grow. The word "slumber" in the text translates "stupor" and that is exactly how to describe it. They are blind to the hidden things given in God's Word. In that it was God that sent the stupor, it is God that places the awakening at the coming of the True Christ, and that is why they will see and understand what they have done. That is what causes the great shame to come over them when the spirit of slumber is removed from their eyes. It places a cloak of innocence over them and prevents them from committing the unforgivable sin, during the reign of Antichrist, which is the preventing of allowing the Holy Spirit to speak through them when they are delivered up.
The Millennium age is a time of teaching and discipline and all souls coming to know the truth with full understanding, without the problems of the flesh age. Minds will be at full capacity, and the entire Word, and all hidden meanings will be revealed with understanding to all minds. This is why we can make the statement that there will be more souls saved then in all the time of this flesh age. For there will be no false teachers, nor doctrines of traditions that are not blinding most men and women that call themselves Christians. Even the heathen will understand, and come to know our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Our Father is fair and just, and He doesn't give any free rides.
Jeremiah 33:7 "And I will cause the captivity of Judah and the captivity of Israel to return, and will build them, as at the first."
Notice that the two houses, Judah and Israel are still handled separate in this verse. "As at the first" is in reference to at the start of their existence in this earth age. In the Millennium they will be rebuilt back together as one nation, as in the time of Solomon and David.
Jeremiah 33:8 "And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, whereby they have sinned against me; and I will pardon all their iniquities, whereby they have sinned, and whereby they have transgressed against me."
This statement is the foundation of the blessings of God. Only God can cleanse them from their iniquity, and sin that has been committed against God. You can cleanse your own home, but only God can do it on a national scale. To pardon doesn't mean that the sin did not exist, but it means that the penalty required for that sin is taken from them. This happens at the first day of the Millennium age, and it is from that date forward that at judgment day, they will be judged by their works done while in the Millennium age. Those that are under grace, and did not bow to Antichrist [the elect] will have their immortality at this time, and in this flesh age dispensation, we are forgiven by faith, through the grace that God gives to us.
In the Millennium age, faith is not what saves you, for faith is your accepting as fact something you do not see nor understand. In the Millennium age all souls will see and understand the Lord Jesus Christ, and there will be nothing that is hidden that has to be accepted by faith, that is why you will be accepted or rejected at judgment by your works alone.
It is obvious that this then is an Millennium age Scripture, for it did not happen when the return out of captivity took place. There were only forty two thousand that returned out of the millions that were taken captive, and then half of them were not even of Judah, but Nethinims, Kenites that had infiltrated into the ranks of Judah. That is what this has to be Millennium age prophecy.
Jeremiah 33:9 "And it shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and an honour before all the nations of the earth, which shall hear all the good that I do unto them: and they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and for all the prosperity that I procure unto it."
Today Jerusalem is not a place of joy, but one of the most tense areas of the world. It is the focal point from most of the terror and conflict around the world. In the Millennium age, Jesus will be in Jerusalem with His Temple, and that will be the center of His reign. It will be a place of praise and good for all mankind.
God will cause all the good things to to happen for you. think of the beautiful time that is in store for us, in that kingdom that Christ will rule over. This entire chapter should be an uplift to you, as God instructs us to call on Him and he will hear our requests and give us answer. He will instruct us in hidden things in His word, and take care of the other matters that we face even now.
Jeremiah 33:10 "Thus saith the LORD; Again there shall be heard in this place, which ye say shall be desolate without man and without beast, even in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, that are desolate, without man, and without inhabitant, and without beast,"
In the time following the battle where Judah becomes captive by Nebuchadnezzar and the Babylonian army, the entire land of Judah, including Jerusalem became stripped man and beast and left desolate. In viewing this as a type of the coming of the the false Christ, the desolation is a spiritual desolation. The desolation is not for a lack of food, water, or necessities but for the truth of God's Word, and that will cause a spiritual death.
In Daniel 9:27: "And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.' "
The one confirming the covenant is Satan the Antichrist, and in that Covenant of seven years, the false Christ will cause the sacrifice and oblation to stop. The sacrifice and oblation is what we call "communion", it is what we take in remembrance of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the sacrifice that He made for us. The communion will cease because we were instructed to take the cup and the broken bread in remembrance of his broken body, until His return. Friend, the whole world will think that Jesus Christ has returned, and thus will stop taking communion. All truth will disappear, and when Satan the false Christ declares himself to be Christ, that is the abomination by the desolator, who is Satan.
Jesus spoke of this 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:)"
This is why when Jesus does return, people will be praying for the mountains to fall on them. It is all over then, and nothing but doom and gloom. At this moment in time, all people will know that they had worshipped Antichrist, who is Satan. They will know that they have been deceived. Many of those were good serious Christian people, and when they sat Sunday after Sunday, year after year, they had no idea that what they were taught was tradition, and not God's Word. They were deceived and became part of the abomination of desolation spoken of by Jesus.
Though they think they are on their way to hell by their own teaching, God is going to pick them up.
Jeremiah 33:11 "The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say, Praise the LORD of hosts: for the LORD is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: and of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the LORD. For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at the first, saith the LORD."
It will be the voice of the bridegroom, who is Jesus Christ; and the voice of the bride who is the Elect, those that overcame in the flesh age and did not yield to Satan the Antichrist will be the ones that pick them up. Our Lord is a good and merciful God, and the elect know it absolutely, even though many Christians today are like those in Jerusalem just before the fall. They compare God to their own imaginations of Him, however they will know the truth also upon Christ's return.
The mercies of God include the corrections that He makes on those that He loves. The Father is constant in his love and mercies, and those promises you can count on. God's Word is eternal. The "sacrifice of praise into the house", was the old blood sacrifices, that were done away with at the cross. Now our sacrifices is in the form of taking the cup and the broken bread, in praise for the sacrifice our Lord Jesus Christ made at the cross.
In the expression, "as at the first" is in reference to the restoration of the entire earth, just as it was before the ruin and destruction that ended the first earth age. It was a beautiful place and could be inhabited from pole to pole. God is going to restore the earth to that perfected condition. The land will be restored as it was in the beginning.
Jeremiah 33:12 "Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Again in this place, which is desolate without man and without beast, and in all the cities thereof, shall be an habitation of shepherds causing their flocks to lie down."
Those shepherds are talked about in Ezekiel 44, and they are the Zadok, the elect of this earth age, and their flocks are the people that will be taught by them. That entire chapter addresses the teaching of the Millennium age, who is going to be taught, and what the priesthood will be like. Though there are many shepherds, there will only be one chief shepherd, and that will be Christ Himself.
Jeremiah 33:13 "In the cities of the mountains, in the cities of the vale, and in the cities of the south, and in the land of Benjamin, and in the places about Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah, shall the flocks pass again under the hands of him that telleth them, saith the LORD."
The "land of Benjamin" is the place of the deed, where Jeremiah followed God's instruction, and purchased land in Anathoth, to guarentee that the Levitical priesthood would return here in the Millennium time. We are being told in this verse that in that day all those souls will be accounted for daily, for the entire period, and given protection. They will pass again under the hands of Him, who is Christ. This again deals with the events of the Millennium age which are recorded in the last eight chapters of Ezekiel. In the Millennium age, we are told that our sacrifice is to be our praise to Christ, which is our "love" for Him. That is all you can offer to Him, and God deserves our praise.
Jeremiah 33:14 " Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and to the house of Judah."
This "Good thing" that will be performed, is that "thing" that was promised from the beginning. It did happen, and exactly as promised.
Jeremiah 33:15 "In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land."
That Branch of course is Jesus Christ, and He did come from the seed of Jesse, through David, and David's son Nathan, to be born of the virgin Mary. Jesus was brought forward by the blessings of our Heavenly Father, the only begotten Son of God. That Good thing was Jesus Christ, for He was the Word of God come in the flesh.
John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."
John 1:2 "The same was in the beginning with God."
John 1:3 "All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made."
Jesus Christ is this Word that was with God from the beginning. John establishes this in John 1:14.
John 1:14 "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth."
The Word, Jesus Christ came into the Word, and lived the perfect life, and became the perfect sacrifice to die for our sins. He was perfect. From the time of His blood sacrifices, the blood sacrifices of animals was finished. Jesus Christ paid the price for once and all times, as written in Hebrews 10:5-9.
Hebrews 10:5 "Wherefore when He cometh into the world, He saith, "Sacrifice and offering Thou wouldest not, but a body hast Thou Prepared me:"
Hebrews 10:6 "In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin Thou hast had no pleasure."
Hebrews 10:7 "Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me) to do thy will, O God."
Hebrews 10:8 "Above when He said, "Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offerings from is thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein;" which are offered by the law.;"
Hebrews 10:9 "Then said He, "Lo, I come to do thy will, O God." He taketh away the first, that He may establish the second."
Jesus came to die only once for the sins of the entire World, and that is why our heavenly Father, through Christ can forgive the sins of those that repent in Jesus name. That was the "will" of the Father, and Jesus death fulfilled that will. This is why the Father can forgive the sins of the world on that first day of the Millennium, when every knee will bow to Jesus Christ. This is not the teaching of "the restoration of all things", but this is only, "If you will repent" then the restoration of your soul comes.
That Branch, that "good thing" did this for us so that we could understand that the sacrifice when Christ is here on earth in the Millennium age, we could pour upon Him not the foul odors of dead animals, but praise and love for Jesus Christ our Savior. Our Heavenly Father was good and merciful to each of us when He gave His only Begotten Son, so that whosoever should believe upon Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life. [John 3:16] Their soul should not perish, but would have life eternal.
In the Greek test, "life eternal" continues for the moment God created you soul in the first earth age, right through conception and the living you life in the flesh body. At death of the flesh body that same living soul departs immediately to the Father that created it, and shall never die. That eternal soul receives immortality [shall never die] when Jesus comes at the seventh trump, and all souls are changed in the wink of an eye into their incorruptible bodies. Friend, there is no such thing as "soul sleep", for the whole idea is from the heathen, there simply is no soul resting in the grave, only a dead and decaying body is laid in the grave, the soul has departed to the Father instantly at death. That is the hope of our salvation that we have in Jesus Christ.
God created the flesh through the embryo of the woman, and He places that soul innocent in that embryo. God loves all the souls of His children, and it is His will that all will come to know Him in repentance; but they will not. They will not because God also gave each soul the right to choose God and His ways, or the path to destruction.
Jeremiah 33:16 "In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our righteousness."
"In those days" is the time of the Millennium age, and Judah shall be saved. No one can argue with that. Many church doctrines preach to the contrary, however the only doctrine that matters in the eyes of God is the Word spoken by God, at that is what we are reading in Jeremiah. Though many are well meaning, their doctrines will become a snag to them.
In the Millennium age Jerusalem is rebuilt and the House of Judah shall dwell in it. The city at that time is going to be called "The Lord our righteousness". All people will call Jerusalem "the Lord our righteousness", because Jesus Christ will be there in Jerusalem in person.
Do you remember from the Jeremiah 33:3 what it meant when we see the word "LORD" capitalized in the King James version? It means that in the manuscripts the word "LORD" in the Hebrew original text the work is "YHVH" the sacred name. The beautiful name applied to the city, comes from the name applied to it's King, Jesus Christ. It is to say that everything is right, and everything is just.
Jeremiah 33:17 "For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel;"
Notice this is not directed to the House of Judah, the Jews which is made up of the tribes of Judah, Benjamin, a small part of Levite, and a whole bunch of the Kenites that have attached themselves to Judah from the time of Solomon. This is directed to the House of Israel, those other ten tribes that in all made up the Christian nations of today.
It is important to remember this verse in the study of Jeremiah 35, and from this verse through Jeremiah 34 is the foundation to understanding Jeremiah 35. It is in these passages that many things are nailed down to let you know exactly what is going on today. It lets us know how good God is to us. These promises can be seen today when you try just a little bit to understand where that throne that is sitting over the house of Israel today.
When the ten tribes went north and through the Caucasus Mountains God didn't lose them, it is just that these people of the house of Israel forgot who they are.
Jeremiah 33:18 "Neither shall the priests the Levites want a man before me to offer burnt offerings, and to kindle meat offerings, and to do sacrifice continually."
These burnt offerings have now changed to the mercy offerings of love to the Almighty God, and this looks also forward to the Millennium age.
Jeremiah 33:19 "And the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah, saying,"
Jeremiah 33:20 "Thus saith the LORD; If ye can break my covenant of the day, and my covenant of the night, and that there should not be day and night in their season;"
God is telling Jeremiah that if you can stop the sun from rising in the morning and setting in the evening, and change the times of the day and night and the seasons; if you can change the laws of nature, then this promise can be broken. This promise is just as sure as the laws of gravity, and this absolutely will not happen.
Jeremiah 33:21 "Then may also my covenant be broken with David my servant, that he should not have a son to reign upon his throne; and with the Levites the priests, my ministers."
God has always promised that there would be someone teaching His Word in fact, and in truth, as far as His promises to His people. Romans 11 points out that at all times God will provide a small remnant, according to the election of grace, to have eyes to see and understand His Word. Even when the spirit of slumber covers the entire House of Israel, that election that hath obtained it will see and understand. That spirit of slumber is moving now to cover the entire earth in these final days of this earth age. The truth may not be popular, but it is taught.
Jeremiah 33:22 "As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea measured: so will I multiply the seed of David my servant, and the Levites that minister unto me."
This throne of David is the same throne that now sits over the British people. It is from the throne that sits over the House of Israel that the thrones of the kings of France, Belgium, Austria, Spain, the Scandinavian nations, and even the Russian royalty came.
When King Zedekiah was taken captive, and he and his sons killed, it was Jeremiah that transplanted the daughters of Zedekiah, those tender twigs into the royal households in marriage of Spain and Ireland. That stone of destiny called Jacob's pillar that all kings of Israel were crowned, followed the daughter into Ireland, where the kings of the seed of David continued to be crowned over.
That throne was overturned from Ireland to Scotland, and then overturned again into England, when King James VI of Scotland became King James I of England. This is the same King James I that had the holy Scriptures translated into the English, and placed in the homes of all of his subjects. The reason He writes is that with the Scriptures in the hands of every person, and in their minds, no outside force, which at the time was the Roman Catholic Church, could force itself on them. The Scottish and English people had seen the results of that force under Queen Mary [bloody Mary], and under James the first, we received the "King James version".
Here is a chart from the British Museum which is king line from David to Queen Elisabeth II of England. Click here: THE ROYAL LINE (also located in the table of contents for this chapter 33 of Jeremiah).
Jacob's pillar is the stone that sits under the coronation chair, and every king or queen that is placed into office, takes their oath over that coronation stone. That stone was carried with the migrations of the House of Israel, all the way to the place where it now sits in Westminster Abby. and this stone is also part of the promise that God made in this verse in Jeremiah 33:20. Where many get off the mark today is in their thinking that the Jew carries the promises that God gave to Abraham, but it is not the house of Judah, but the house of Israel, the Christian nations, of which Ephraim, or the English, and Manasseh, which are the American are the house of Israel today.
It is important to remember what Jacob did in Genesis 48:20 "And he blessed them that day, saying, "In thee shall Israel bless, saying, "God make thee as Ephraim and as Manasseh:" and he set Ephraim before Manasseh." This blessing was the right of the first born, the right of the Abrahamic covenant that was passed from Abraham to Isaac, then on to Jacob, who's name was changed by God to Israel.
So what about Judah, and his blessing? Genesis 49:10 gives us his blessing. "The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto Him shall the gathering of the people be." Judah's right is to rule over the House of Israel, that has been placed on the head of Ephraim and Manasseh. Judah has the right of the scepter, and the right to make and enforce the laws of God.
So if you listen to the coronation that is placed on the heads of all Kings and Queens of England taking that scepter, and assuming the right to the throne, the first charge to that king or queen is that they are crowned "King [or queen] of Israel, protector of the faith." That is their first charge of their office.
This is not promoting any such thing as the "British Israelite theory", but is exactly what the throne of England is all about. It is tied directly to this flesh age and the very promise of God to David and the House of Israel. God made the throne of England as absolute as the law of Gravity, the sun rising and falling, and the moon and stars. Friend, when their is no king or queen of England, it means that either the word is under the one world reign of the Antichrist, or we are in the Millennium age, and the King of Kings Jesus Christ is on the throne in Jerusalem. That time you will not see in your flesh body
To deny this is to stick you head in the sand and deny the Word of God, and if that is what you desire to do, don't let me stop you. Sleep on.
It is time to wake up, and see that the House of Israel is as numbered as the stars of the heaven and the sands of the sea. The part of the Covenant that God made with Abraham in Genesis 15:1-5 has come true. "And He brought him forth abroad, and said, "Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them:" and He said unto him, "So shall thy seed be." Abraham believed that it would come true, and God counted His faith for believing for for His righteousness.
You can count the house of Judah, which is the Jews of today, however those ten tribes calling themselves the hose of Israel have lost their identity, and most don't even know who they are, except by their migration event of passing through the Caucasus Mountains when they were scattered just after 722 B.C. Today they call themselves "Caucasians"
King James I was the one man that brought the Word of God down to the level of understanding of the common man. Today any household that desires can have a copy of the King James Bible, and the tools to make that Word come to life in their hearts and lives. God's Word allows us to climb to that place of righteousness. When you call on God, He will show you the hidden things. Remember the third verse of this chapter? "Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not." The things that are hidden from those that do not understand, are blinded by their traditions.
Jeremiah 33:23 "Moreover the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying,"
Jeremiah 33:24 "Considerest thou not what this people have spoken, saying, The two families which the LORD hath chosen, he hath even cast them off? thus they have despised my people, that they should be no more a nation before them."
The two families that God is talking about here are the House of Israel, the Christian nations, and the House of Judah, the Jews. God is saying that the people don't know what they are saying, when they tell you that God has cast off these two families.
God did not cast of the two nations, for He will be there to answer when any of His children call out to Him. When you want to understand the deeper things of His Word, God will make provision for your understanding, but the conditions is that you see Him, and call out to Him. Go back and read Jeremiah 33:3 and see where God is saying that if you call unto Him, He will show you the mysteries and the simplicities that are hidden in His Word.
Jeremiah 33:25 "Thus saith the LORD; If my covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth;"
The Covenant with day and night, is the fact that the Son will always rise and set on flesh man, and the stars will be in the heavens. The "ordinances of heaven and earth" is to say the "natural order of things in nature".
Jeremiah 33:26 "Then will I cast away the seed of Jacob, and David my servant, so that I will not take any of his seed to be rulers over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: for I will cause their captivity to return, and have mercy on them."
God's law of nature is not going to change, and if the other conditions did ever change, man would not live in the flesh. However all these conditions are things that we can count on, right along with the Word of God, and He certainly will not allow anyone else to change them.
The word "Abraham" in the Hebrew tongue means "The father of many nations". The word nations is that same as saying Gentiles. In other words just in the name Abraham, all the peoples or nations will be blessed in the seed of Abraham. In a spiritual sense, it is from the seed of Abraham, through Judah, David and Mary that the Branch came into the World, and became the sacrifice for the sins of all of Gods children, what ever their nation, tongue, or race. It is through Christ only that all spiritual living souls do live. And in a physical sense, today every nation on the face of the earth, is drawing whatever wealth they do have, from the blessings God gave to His People, the House of Israel, along with the house of Judah.
So we see from Jeremiah 33 that the king of Babylon, both of the time of Jeremiah, as well as in the final generation will come. What happened in Jeremiah's day was a type of how it will be just before the Antichrist comes to earth, for God will give control to Satan, and allows Him do do with it as he pleases. That is why Satan is the prince of the power of the air. God will allow Satan to take over whom ever will all themselves to be taken. It is the choice of the individual.
However God's elect will have the seal of God to see right through the deceptions of Antichrist, and we have the strength in Christ to be overcomers. God gives each of His children the power over Satan and all his realm, if they will take that power. That power is in the name of the Branch, which is to say Jesus Christ. In this chapter, God gives us the victory.
When God sends Jeremiah back to give the message out, He promises that Jeremiah will be protected for the destruction that will come upon the rulers, the people, and the land. This protection is extended to those that are living in the time of the spiritual destruction in our generation. The Covenants or promises that are stated in His Word are are save, and we can count of every last one of them. That applies to both the physically Covenants that were promised to Abraham, as well as the Covenants that apply to the Branch, Jesus Christ; that we can repent to the Father, in Jesus name, and be forgiven of sin.
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." That was the reason for the promising of the Branch to be sent, and the fact that you can count on His Word. God love you, and He does not desire that you should perish in the lake of fire.
