Jeremiah

Chapter 8

"Incrimination. Sorrow and Threatenings."

This Bible Study is written by Roger Christopherson, and it's transcription/ location is provided by http://www.theseason.org

Jeremiah 8:1 "At that time, saith the LORD, they shall bring out the bones of the kings of Judah, and the bones of his princes, and the bones of the priests, and the bones of the prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, out of their graves:"

"They are the enemies. In other words, we see a great deal of disrespect within this, but "they" are claiming that these are our fathers. These are our people, and within this is the great apostasy. The great falling away from the Father. Those that cannot see this, must be concerned whether they have eyes to see and ears to hear the Word of God.

Each is claiming responsibility, but are part of the great Apostasy of being Biblically illiterate, of having listening to man and allowing man to do their thinking for them, rather than being taught how to study the Word of God on their own.

Jeremiah 8:2 "And they shall spread them before the sun, and the moon, and all the host of heaven, whom they have loved, and whom they have served, and after whom they have walked, and whom they have sought, and whom they have worshipped: they shall not be gathered, nor be buried; they shall be for dung upon the face of the earth."

This is what they worship, the sun and the moon, "The hosts of Heaven" are Satan's little fallen angels. Hosts is the army of Satan's saints. They even call themselves saints.

Remember in Revelation 12:7-9; "And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,[7] And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.[8] And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.[9]

Satan and his angels are castle out on this earth, and Christ himself warned us in Matthew 24:37 where it is written that it would be as in the days of Noah - "But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." Those fallen angels will be back on earth cohabitating exactly as they did prior to the flood of Noah.

Matthew 24:38-39 "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,[38] And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.[39]

These fallen angels will be back on earth cohabitating with women and men, they will be worshipping them, thinking they are true host of God. Anybody that will not study God's Word, and be able to know and identity those fallen angels and know them as part of Satan's deception, will seek after them in idolatry, worship. They will not be fit for anything but dung on the face of the earth, in the eyes of God.

If you are Biblically illiterate, and have no idea of how the "end times" come together, as to the order of events which are so simply given by Christ himself. If you have been listening to some airbag claiming to be preparing you, and you have not prepared yourself, then you are in trouble, friend. You need to study so that you will not follow the filth and abomination that will walk directly into the house of God in the end time generation. We are in that end generation.

Jeremiah 8:3 "And death shall be chosen rather than life by all the residue of them that remain of this evil family, which remain in all the places whither I have driven them, saith the LORD of hosts."

It is written that God scattered the people over all the earth. Those people of early Israel have left their trail even over most of our country, in their ancient Hebrew and Greek writings, as well as the Ogam and other writings, and it is a thrill that God's Word can be documented that it is true.

Why would this family desire death? Paul talked about this in II Corinthians 11:2 "For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ." Paul desires that at Christ's coming, you may be presented to Christ as his virgin bride, and not whoring into idolatry or some religion.

II Corinthians 11:3 "But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ." Are you going to be seduced by the devil, even as Eve was in the garden of Eden? They will do this because they are ignorant of God's Word. They just don't understand that the son of perdition comes first.

Therefore, as it is written, they will jump in bed with him. Revelation 2:20 "Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols."

They will be ashamed to face the true Father, because they really want to do right. They are church people, Christians, but they just never get around to studying God's Word for themselves. They study only a small part of the New Testament, and they turn their backs on the rest. They forget what Christ is Emmanuel, God with us, in the Old as well as the New Testament. It takes all the prophets as Paul points out in I Corinthians 10:11; "Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come."

What happened in the Old Testament is an example, or type so we could know what will happen to us in these end times.

Jeremiah 8:4 "Moreover thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD; Shall they fall, and not arise? shall he turn away, and not return?"

The Massorah has a text that locks in and calls attention to the fact that of the two words represented by "turn" and "and", the first letter of the second word belongs to the first word; so that this latter will read "Shall they return [to Him].

The question in this in a sense; "Don't they know that when they fall, that they will call back on My name that I will help them?" In the other sense it says; "If a man falls, doesn't he at least try to get up, or shall he turn away, and not return"? It asks the question, when you are heading in the wrong direction, and you know it, why do you keep going in that direction?"

How about you friend? There is major problems in the family, or you know you are heading for trouble, don't you at least try to turn things around in your life? Don't you have enough sense to know that God is not pleased with you, and by turning back to Him, He can bring joy and peace back into your life.

Jeremiah 8:5 "Why then is this people of Jerusalem slidden back by a perpetual backsliding? they hold fast deceit, they refuse to return."

They stick fast to their falsehood, their traditions of flying away, and so on, and they will not turn away from their security blanket of the lies and deceit that they have come to reply upon. When their preacher tells them to never read the book of Revelation, they then tell those that would teach them Revelation "don'g clog my mind with serious thoughts, just let me fly away."

Not only that, but God says that they are going to fly away to the dung heap in the deception of Satan the Antichrist, very shortly. You will be just that, dung on the street, for you will not be fit for much else according to God's Word, if you're that lazy and sluggish. If you don't love God enough to read His Word, you're not fit for His kingdom.

Jeremiah 8:6 "I hearkened and heard, but they spake not aright: no man repented him of his wickedness, saying, What have I done? every one turned to his course, as the horse rusheth into the battle."

I listened and I heard, but no one word of what they were speaking ws the truth. They continue telling the same old traditions in their church houses, and every one continued in their lies. Just like a mounted cavalry horse charging into the battle, those so called Christians charge into the deception, with their minds set on their own destruction. They just love to hear Satan's droppings from his evil spirit touching certain people, and saying, "Thus saith the Lord." When the Lord did not speak to them.

We are in a generation where this is very common, and you had better watch out for those that say they speak for the Lord, but lie through their teeth on spiritual matters. That is why we are to check them all out, including what is written here. Learn to dig it out for yourself. The Lord does speak through certain people, and you had better know how to discern those that do speak for the Lord, and those that mutter words from their own mind.

Jeremiah 8:7 "Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the LORD."

The turtle, crane and swallow all know the times and seasons that they must prepare for; there are people that call themselves of God, that don't even know who they are, where they came from, and they could care less. Though the stork is an unclean bird, at least she has enough natural instinct to trust God that created her, and to the know the time that it is ready for her to head north, or when she should head south for the winter. She has the sense to navigate to the spot where she ought to be.

Do you know where you came from? Do you know where God scattered His people?

Jeremiah 8:8 "How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain."

This loses much in the translation. He is saying here: How can you be wise in God's Word, when your scribes or churches have changed the meaning of God's Word. The false pen of the false scribes or churches have changed the meaning of God's Word. The false pen of the false scribe worketh for falsehood. How in the world, if y ou keep following church systems and their little quarterly scribes who lay out the direction of your path, and keep you from studying God's Word, how are you going to know the truth? Without the truth fixed in your mind, then how are you ever going to discern the truth of God's Word. What are you going to listen to, God speaking from His Word, or the mutterings of some false scribes pen, and his traditions.

This is only directed to those churches that allow abominations, and falsehoods to enter their doors, and be spoken from their pulpits. Religion can really mess you up when you allow religion to come between you and the Word of God.

Jeremiah 8:9 "The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, they have rejected the word of the LORD; and what wisdom is in them?

As in much all wisdom comes from God, and if you reject the very Word of God, and substituted a lot of traditions, then what wisdom do you have? Satan would like nothing better than to trick you. Are you willing to bet your very soul on that? For that is exactly what you are doing. Get back to the Word of God where there is wisdom. Get rid of that substitute trash that is used for a replacement for the Word of God. Get used to thinking for yourself from His Holy Word.

Jeremiah 8:10 "Therefore will I give their wives unto others, and their fields to them that shall inherit them: for every one from the least even unto the greatest is given to covetousness, from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely."

Look at the church world today, wit their begging bags. They give you a verse here, then try to steal the Lords money from the morsels that they threw on the ground for you. Giving has become the center of their ministry, and it has become a game of gimicks. The latest one is "send a check and a prayer, and we will place that prayer at the wailing wall in Jerusalem." They have their causes, and their crises of all sorts. Purchase this trinket or blessed bead to wear to show that you are one of their suckers.

Friend, Christ does the healing, and He will provide for those ministries that He wants, without a begging bag. If there is crises in a ministry, and no Word being taught, let that be a sign to you. What are you trying to support, a losing cause? Don't be ignorant.

What does it mean that "I give their wives unto others, and their fields to them..." Many times people are not wise enough to know when things come to pass. How long has it been that you have sat down and tallied your income? How much income is yours after taxes and the interest you pay on loans or usury? How much income is yours after taxes and the interest you pay on loans or usury? In many cases, there is not much left for the food, and other necessities. Now what about medical? Can you now see how the Kenites, and Satan's lot is trimming your sails? God's people are just not wise enough to know when they are being taken by Satan. Usury is a tool that God says to stay away from. The credit cards are a tool that have done many of God's people in.

You have been eaten up, and you have not been producing any fruit for God. God wants you to be successful even in this earth age. He doesn't like those Kenites to get into your wallets and purses. God teaches you that.

Jeremiah 8:11 "For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace."

They are those false teachers and ministers that try to heal the hurt of God's people by their saying not to worry, you are not going to be here, you will not see the false christ. You will be gone. They give out their false peace and hope then to tell you that you don't have to understand the book of Revelation, or the Old Testament, then their false peace and hope leaves you wide open for the deception that is coming upon the whole earth. Actually, this prophecy is actually the type of what is going to happen tomorrow.

Friend you do need to know. The peace, peace is also referring to the One World System that is present all around us today, and represents the lies that they are giving us as they prepare the way for the false christ.

Jeremiah 8:12 "Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall among them that fall: in the time of their visitation they shall be cast down, saith the LORD."

Of course they were not ashamed, because they have been listening to the false scribes, and the false teachers and preachers. They don't know the Word of God, and in their ignorance they can't blush because they don't even know they did wrong. They are Biblically illiterate, or they would know what tomorrow would bring, and they would have planned for it, and learned the signs and events that Christ, the apostles and prophets warned us to be on watch for. They would be metally and spiritually prepared, but because they are unprepared, they produce no fruit.

Jeremiah 8:13 "I will surely consume them, saith the LORD: there shall be no grapes on the vine, nor figs on the fig tree, and the leaf shall fade; and the things that I have given them shall pass away from them."

Do you remember when Jesus was hungry and He walked up to the fig tree, and there was no figs on it? Jesus knew there were no figs on it, because it was the wrong time of the year. However, He was illustrating the parable of the fig tree, where you are to know from the start, when the appointed time is. It is summer or winter, spiritually speaking.

God is saying here that if you want to be ignorant, I am going to let the enemy overtake you, and come in. What amazes me is how most Christians just don't catch on that there is no change of bodies, to the spiritual incorruptible, until the seventh and last trump. That is when any catching away would happen. We will be caught out of the flesh bodies, and go into spiritual body, that is everyone.

Paul talked of this in 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."

Friend, it at the sounding of the fifth trumpet that the Antichrist first appears, from 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." Satan is coming as Antichrist, the "instead of Christ" with his angels from the bottomless pit.

It is time now to put our Spiritual armour on and have it in place, so upon his arrival and the spiritual warfare that has already started, we an be able to withstand those firey darts of Satan. Many say that the church has never been mentioned beyond chapter three to the end of the book of Revelation. The church is definately present in Chapter 22. It is amazing how most preachers know absolutely nothing about Revelations, and because of their ignorance, they instruct others that it is not necessary for them to know.

Friend, that should be a dire warning to you, to look out for that preacher that tells you that God had time to waste in writing the book of Revelation, as well as the prophets of old. He is telling you that he knows more than God as to what you should and should not know. Look out for that false prophet. The scribe with the false pen. He is telling you that he knows more than God.

Jeremiah 8:14 "Why do we sit still? assemble yourselves, and let us enter into the defenced cities, and let us be silent there: for the LORD our God hath put us to silence, and given us water of gall to drink, because we have sinned against the LORD."

The people that are decieved are asking, "why do we sit still"? The "water of gall" is the poppy seed. Have you ever heard of anyone sniffing that heroine stuff, that is what comes from the poppy seed. Have you ever heard of anyone running to any large city, and trying to find any peace there in this generation. Look around you, wake up.

The false teachers give the people false advice, and their spiritual wound gapes open, and there is no healing at the pen of the false scribe, or the Biblically illiterate preacher. Friend, you are not going to find any healing there. So to go too the big town and staying silent just will not help you. The Lord told you study His Word where you are, and listen to it.

Jeremiah 8:15 "We looked for peace, but no good came; and for a time of health, and behold trouble!"

They say, we went to God's house and prayed for healing, and we didn't get healed. Why? I don't know, what did you do while you were there? Did you listen to God's Word, or did you listen to those one verse preachers. Did you listen to anyone tell you that he is more important than God, and that you didn't need to know part of God's warning? Did he tell you that you are some special cherub of God that was going to fly off into space when God needed His spiritual warriors here on earth where the battle was taking place. The problem is that they didn't know who to pray to for their healing.

If you are setting yourself up to be taken by the first Christ, then you are planning to be taken by the wrong christ, the Antichrist.

Jeremiah 8:16 "The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan: the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they are come, and have devoured the land, and all that is in it; the city, and those that dwell therein."

This day is coming very shortly. There is a teaching within this. Was Dan present with Judah and Benjamin in the time of Jeremiah? If you know anything at all about God's Word, your answer is no. Why then is Dan mentioned? Because Dan, the tribe furthermost to the north, was taken by the Assyrian two hundred years before this.

In other words, it had already happened, and the "Assyrian" by the prophet Isaiah [Isaiah 14] tells us that Lucifer, or by whatever name you will call him, was cast to the earth and would deceive all those on earth. Even the people at the end of this earth age would walk up and ask as they gazed into the pit, is this the man that deceived the whole world? Lucifer at this time is referred to as the "Assyrian".

Let's simplify it a little. The Assyrian is the type of Antichrist, in Isaiah 14. So when you use this as a type of the king of Babylon, you have an absolute proof of what will happen at the time of the end of this earth age.

Jeremiah 8:17 "For, behold, I will send serpents, cockatrices, among you, which will not be charmed, and they shall bite you, saith the LORD."

The serpents and the cockatrices are the Kenites, the sons of Satan, and the false ministers that will bite you, or deceive you with their false teachings, and traditions. They are like the scorpions of Revelation Chapter 9, and God definately tells Satan to go down there and tell your false teachers and leaders to sting the people as the bite of a scorpion, but don't you dare touch my anointed, the elect. Those are the ones that have the seal of God in their foreheads, their minds.

God's elect have studied and they have absorbed the truth, and God said that you will not touch mine elect. That is why God will allow some to believe a lie like you have never heard before. That is what the poison is that comes from those scorpions. If you have ever wondered who would be over this massive group of decievers, he is named in Revelation 9:11"And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon." Friend, that is the name of Satan, the Antichrist.

Jeremiah 8:17 "When I would comfort myself against sorrow, my heart is faint in me."

This is the prophet speaking now, instead of the people. Jeremiah is saying they are past healing. What can I do when there is so much deception taught in the churches of the world, what can I do to correct it? That is Jeremiah speaking.

There are ministries today that are going out to all the earth, and there are many that hear the words of truth and repent, and get into His Word. The teacher of God's Word make the Word come alive to you, whereby you can experience the excitement as it was given to the prophet. He can make you feel the love of God, and he helps those that need help, and they are starving for the truth.

Jeremiah 8:18 "Behold the voice of the cry of the daughter of my people because of them that dwell in a far country: Is not the LORD in Zion? is not her king in her? Why have they provoked me to anger with their graven images, and with strange vanities?"

The graven image that will be here on earth, that dragon, Satan causes the whold world to bow down to them. The false Messiah will make his claims and promises, and all the people of the world will buy into that image. They will bury their tickets on the rapture flight, right into the camp of Satan, in ignorance. That graven image is the image of the beast.

Revelation 13:4 "And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?"

Revelation 13:5 "And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months."

That time was shortened in Revelation 9:5 Who are these that will bow down to Satan and His system?

Revelation 13:6 "And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven."

Friend, if you are not sealed with the knowledge of the truth of God's Word, you will be one of them. All nations, peoples and tongue, that is all on the face of the earth.

Revelation 13:7 "And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations."

They do not know who Satan is, and they will do it in ignorance thinking all the time they are serving God. That is what He is talking about friend. What is sealed in your mind, are you putting anything in there, or are you just planning to buy a rapture ticker. It will be an expensive ticket, of the price is your very soul. Now is the time to at least try.

"Strange vanities" are strange nothingness. It is referring to things that just don't amount to anything, they just have no value. Yet people put those vanities of emptiness up as having great value in their lives. They put those vain things up as being an important way of pleasing God. How would they even know, for they are Biblically illiterate.

Jeremiah 8:19 "The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved."

The harvest is over at this time. There will be no more opportunity in this earth age to become sealed in your mind. You are either sealed with the Word of God in your mind, or you will be part of the masses that we read about in Revelation 13:4-7, that are part of the Antichrist, Satan's realm, worshipping him as the christ, and doing his work. The end has come, and no one flew away. That is when the prayers went out, as was mentioned in the fourth chapter. Death will be sought, by mountains falling on the deceived, but there is no death, only great shame at the coming of our Lord. They will know how to blush then, because they will know that they worshipped Satan, and married the false christ.

Jeremiah 8:20 "For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt; I am black; astonishment hath taken hold on me."

It is real hard to see and hear the others make fun of God's people, but that is exactly what is going to happen with those who do not prepare themselves. "I am black" means that I am in mourning and have the black garb of the mourner.

Jeremiah 8:21 "Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?"

In other words, when those ministers say, be healed, why isn't she healed? The "balm" is from the balsam tree, and it was used for healing. What it is saying here is that the daughter is sick because she has not been nourished, she has not been fed. She is sick and there is no medicine to heal her. They he says, isn't theree a physician to take her to? Friend there is a physician and He is everywhere, there are those who play the role of the physicians which are the ministers, and if those physicians are pouring the balm on the sick, why are they not being healed? It is easy to blame it on the people for not attending the church, but on the other hand, when they do, there is no spiritual food in the trof for them to eat from. That is what is making the daughters sick.

God's Word is the balm, and God is the physican Himself, through the Son, If you want healing, then do it God's way. Not the way of men. When it is God that says it, then it is so. So we see something is wrong, and it is either the healer [the minister], or the medicine [that which he is teaching].

Remember, the physician [ministers] would have learned from the scribe, only the scribe has a bad pen, spiritually speaking. So you know that he is fake, and you know they have aligned themselves up with the wrong tree, because God withdrew the balm from them. So there are fakes all over the place, when they look for healing from the mouth of men, rather then the mouth of God. It should be rather simple to understand.
