My People Have Done Evil Things



Jeremiah has been called to warn the people of Israel. When you read Jeremiah, if you substitute the United States for Israel, you will realize that the Book of Jeremiah is not just historical, but extremely and divinely prophetic. Jeremiah, except for certain verses is rarely taught on today and yet, with the state of the United States as a Nation, we NEED, we MUST take the words of Jeremiah to heart!

Now understand dear readers in posting this, I am looking at this from the standpoint of God’s Creation or even the Nation He has blessed when I refer to the term “People” in the title. God’s true children, born-again, redeemed by the Blood of Jesus Christ and walking righteously are NOT the ones that these Scriptures are targeting in the modern age because we are under the dispensation of Grace. If His true children ARE being rebellious though, maybe you should rethink your stance on God’s Justness and Mercy, for He is STILL a holy and righteous God!

I’m writing this in the middle of the coronavirus panic that has spread all across the United States and other nations, though in truth, the U.S. has hardly been hit at all. Yet hoarding and binge buying of daily necessities have left many vulnerable and in a state of wonderment; YET, our God, Sovereign and Almighty, Who is ever in control will take care of His righteous children, do not be afraid of or doubt the truth of that!

This Nation which has called on God to bless and prosper them has decided they no longer NEED the blessing or intervention of the Almighty, because after all, we as a Nation have grown wiser in “wisdom.” So they think! God MAY be just sitting back and saying, “Okay, we’ll just see.” All the while letting man’s “wisdom” figure this predicament out. God doesn’t have to judge our Nation for it is evident that wherever you look, to the East, the West, the North or South, mankind’s minds have turned in on themselves in panic and the panic is much worse than the actual flu virus, no matter how severe it is. Also, I can just about guarantee you, the politicians who have turned from God unto corruption are trying to figure how to use this to their advantage! They are bringing judgement upon themselves, as most often happens, without God’s help in the least!

“For my people (those who call upon my name as a nation) have done two evil things: They have abandoned Me, the very Fountain of Living Water. And they have dug cracked cisterns (wells of human wisdom) that can hold NO water at all, living or otherwise!” This was stated centuries ago to the rebellious children of Israel. Yet human nature just seems to persist and this is prophetic to what is happening in this very situation we are in right now!

It will be interesting to see what the next few weeks have in store for the world and for the U.S. God’s true children, renewed spiritually and anointed by the abiding Holy Spirit need to continue to pray for one another and those lost and blinded!
