MORE FROM JEREMIAH

WHY AM I IN JEREMIAH, FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT OF THE BIBILE? I AM READING SOME OF MY JOURNALS FROM 201O. SO, THIS SOME OF WHAT I WROTE: I AM READING JEREMIAH. I HAVE TO ADMIT I HAVE GOTTEN AWAY FROM READING THE PROPHETS OF THE OLD TESTAMENT BUT IT IS HISTORY AND I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN TOLD WE SHOULD PAY ATTENTION BECAUSE HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF. SO WE HAVE TO READ HISTORY TO BE WARNED. JEREMIAH WRITES OF THE CORRUPTION AND THE IMMORALITY AND HOW GOD PLEADED WITH THE PEOPLE TO RETURN TO HIM. THEIR SIN WAS TO FOLLOW THE EASY WAY IN LIFE, THE POPULAR WAY, IDOLATRY. IDOLATRY IS ANYTHING WE USE OUR TIME FOR, FORGETTING GOD. IN JEREMIAH 3;17, GOD SAYS RETURN TO ME. THAT WOULD CLEAN UP THIS COUNTRY. JEREMIAH 4:6 GOD SAYS A DESTROYER WAS BEING RAISED UP FOR THE PEOPLE AND THE NATION. HAS IT OCCURED TO US A DESTROYER MAY BE COMING FOR OUR RUIN? BIBLE TEACHER J.VERNON.MCGEE SAID GOD IS BEING REJECTED IN THE LIFE OF OUR NATION TODAY BUT MDANY PEOPLE CLAIM TO BE CHRISTIANS BUT WE CAN'T TELL. wE ARE TOLD WE ARE NOT A CHRISTIAN NATION TODAY. I PRAY THAT IS NOT TRUE AND GOD DOES NOT TURN AWAY FROM US. TAKE CARE, BETTY G YOU CAN TELL I AM FEELING RATHER GLOOMY TONIGHT. i WOULD APPRECIATE HEARING SOME GOOD NEWS FROM SOMEONE. THANK YOU,'BETTY G

LET'S PAY ATTENTION

THIS IS FROM JEREMIAH 6TH CHAPTER, VERSES 16 AND 17. GOD PLEADS WITH ISRAEL TO ASK WHERE THE GOOD ROAD IS,THE GODLY PATHS THE PEOPLE USED TO WALK ON. GOD TOLD THEM THAT IS THE WAY TO REST THEIR SOULS. BUT THEIR REPLY WAS THAT WAS NOT WHAT THEY WANTED. GOD REMINDED THEM THAT HE SET A WATCHMAN OVER THEM TO WARN THEM, "LISTEN FOR THE SOUND OF THE TRUMPET!" THE PEOPLE PROTESTED, "NO WE WON'T PAY ANY ATTENTION!" THIS IS AMAZING. IT IS THE SAME NOW IN THE USA. PEOPLE EVERYWHERE REFUSE TO PAY ATTENTION TO ANY WARNING. NO ONE WORRIES ABOUT DESTRUCTION OF OUR WAY OF LIFE, YET EVERYWHERE THERE IS RAGE AND WE REALLY DON'T KNOW WHY. I FOR ONE BELIEVE AND I AM SURE THERE ARE MANY OTHERS WHO AGREE, ITS BECAUSE WE DON'T LISTEN TO GOD AND WE JUST SIMPLY WON'T ALLOW GOD TO SAY ANYTHING OR DO ANYTHING IN PUBLIC AND EVEN PRIVATELY. GOD IS IGNORED AND CERTAINLY NOT WATCHING OUT FOR US. WE ARE OUR OWN RULERS WITH OUR OWN WANTS. GOD SAYS TO US WAKE UP AND PAY A ATTENTION TO ME. I WILL DO WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU, I LOVE YOU. GOD DOES LOVE US AND HE ALWAYS HAS. TAKE CARE, BETTY G
