The Word

Scripture Reading(Jeremiah: 7: 1-16); (Jeremiah: 7: 23-30)

Trusting in Lying Words: “The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD saying, stand in the gate of the LORD’s house and proclaim there this word, and say: Hear the Word of the LORD, all ye of Judah that enter in at these gates to worship the LORD. Thus says the LORD of hosts, the GOD of Israel: Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place. Trust you not in lying words, saying the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD are these. For if you thoroughly amend your ways and your doings; if you thoroughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbor.

If you oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt: Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, forever and ever. Behold you trust in lying words, that cannot profit. Will you steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Ba’al, and walk after gods whom you know not. And come and stand before me in this house which is called by name, and say, we are delivered to do these abominations?

Is this house which is called by name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it, says the LORD. But go you now unto my place which was in Shiloh, where I set my name at the first, and see what I did to it for the wickedness of my people Israel. And now, because you have done all these works, says the LORD, and I spoke unto you rising up early and speaking, but you heard not: and I called you, but you answered not; therefore will I do unto this house, which is called by my name, wherein you trust, and unto the place which I gave to you and to your father, as I have done to Shiloh.

And I will cast you out of my sight, as I have cast out all your brethren, even the whole seed of Ephraim. Therefore pray not for this people, neither lift up cry nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to me: for I will not hear thee.”  –Jeremiah: 7: 1-16

Obscene Religion:  “But this thing commanded I them, saying, obey my voice, and I will be your GOD, and you shall be my people; and walk you in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well with you. But they hearkened (listened) not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and imagination of their evil heart, and went backward and not forward. Since that day that your fathers came forth out of the land of Egypt unto this day I have sent unto you my servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending them:

Yet they hearkened not unto me, nor inclined their ear, but hardened their neck: They did worse than their fathers. Therefore you shall speak all these words unto them; but they will not hearken to you: thou shall also call unto them; but they will not answer thee. But you shall say unto them. This is a nation that obeyed not the voice of the LORD their God, nor received correction: truth is perished, and is cut off from their mouth. Cut off thine hair, O Jerusalem, and cast it away, and take lamentation on high places, for the LORD has rejected and forsaken the generation of his wrath. For the children of Judah have done evil in my sight, says the LORD they have set their abominations in the house which is called by name, to pollute it.”  —Jeremiah: 7: 23-30

Prophetic Utterance

“Trusting in Lying Words and Obscene Religion”

Thus says, the Spirit of the LORD God of Hosts, Hear the Word of the LORD. You my people who are called by name. Consider your ways, says the LORD. For you have polluted my dwelling places which is called by name.  You polluted my altars with vain petitions and false testimonies.

You have not hearkened (listened) to my Word. I have sent my prophets to you and you have rejected the voice of my commands. Consider your ways—and repent, says the LORD! You have trusted in “lying words, and obscene religion.”  You have put barriers and stumbling blocks before the people. Your sermons and words are from vain lips that utter words of darkness; for you have rejected my light to walk therein.

Consider your ways and repent, says the LORD! You shepherds that hoard over my flock; you false teachers that instruct words of men of knowledge! You men of influence who lay heavy burdens upon the people to give what they have not. My house shall be called a house of prayer; and you have made it a den of robbers.

Behold, my anger and my fury shall be poured upon the houses which are called by name who have rejected my servants; and even my words, says the LORD. It is time now to go up to the high places, and repent with lamentations says, the LORD and turn from your vain worship and religious ways. I will not accept your ways and doings, says the LORD therefore repent!

You oppress the stranger and the fatherless, and widow; and you have not considered the poor and the needy. Your practices have come up to me; and is a stench into my nostrils. Cast out the evil doers and wickedness that is among you; and embrace my people who I have sent. Bind up the brokenhearted, and heal their wounds: Minister to those that hunger for my Word with unconditional love and truth.

Oppress not my people with usury and of tithes and offerings—Allow them to give as I have prospered them to give, says the LORD! For I shall add to the church daily such as to be saved. Preach my Word in truth and not in condemnation says the LORD; for you will be held accountable for every word that have been spoken.

Deliver my people and set them free from the yoke of bondage through vain religious doctrine and the traditions of men. Teach them as with the tongue of the learned that you may know how to speak my word in season unto to them who is weary:

Consider your ways and turn back to me, says the LORD. Obey my voice; and I will be your God, and you shall be my people. And walk in my ways that I have commanded you that it may be well with you.

Walk forward into the light and not backward into darkness: Incline your ear to hear the watchman that I have set in place to see and declare my words. That you be not cast from out of my sight.

So, consider your ways, says the LORD that you continue not to trust in “lying words, and obscene religion” and enter into my presence in the sanctuary that I may deliver and heal you my people, says the LORD GOD Almighty, the LORD of hosts. Selah…#

O’ daughter my Blessed one; “Prepare to Enter into My Presence.” For I shall come unto you and I shall cover you with my divine power and anointing. “Prepare to Enter into My Presence!”  And bring my daughters and royal diadems with you. Call unto me O’ daughter of Zion and I shall answer you and show you great things that you know not.

Devon, I am near; and I shall gather together my people, my anointed ones who are called by name. Prepare my people to enter within. I shall cover them and heal them. Prepare them to call on my name and humble themselves with repentance. For I shall be their substance, I shall be their healer, and I shall be their deliverer. Prepare my people to lift up and call unto me.  Let them know how much I love them.

Let them know that I am here to protect them to guard them, to feed them, to deliver them, to make their way straight and give them the abundance of their hearts. Let them know that I am near and only a prayer away. Let them know that I have summoned to come unto me—to rest in my peace and to rejoice in my presence.

Let them know that their every need shall be met. For I shall give them the gold of Sheba and they shall lay-up gold as dust. Let them know that I shall make their way prosperous and they shall have good success. Let them know if they trust and obey me that no good thing shall I withhold from them.

Let them know O’ daughter that I am the LORD their GOD, The Almighty, the Ruler of the Universe, their Great GOD and King! Let them know that I will bring them out of confusion and disillusionment. Let them know that in me there is no fear. Let them know that my perfect love cast out all of their fears; and that I will give them peace as a river. The waters of life shall flow within them freely and they shall rise up in faith and rejoice in the LORD their GOD. Let them know to put away childish things and become my sons and daughters; to walk upright as trees of righteousness who’s roots that shall not fail.

O’ daughter and greatly beloved. I will come unto you and sup with you. I will shower you with blessings from on high. Yes, O faithful one I shall bring forth in you your season of rest, and blessings. I shall overshadow you with blessings from on high. You shall prosper in all that your hands find to do. Your countenance shall shine as you arise to give me glory. And those who are with you shall shine also. My light shall permeate your being and the people who walk in darkness shall behold your lights.

I will glorify you with the brightness of my rising, says the LORD as you usher yourselves within my presence. For in my presence there is fullness of joy; and at my right hand pleasures forevermore. Come into me, beloved glorify my name; and embrace my light of glory. In me my people shall have all they desire.

Come into me, O’ beloved daughter of Zion and lead my people into my presence. Worship me and praise me with all your hearts. I shall destroy the oppressor and those who would inflict harm unto my servants, my anointed. I will deliver you and bring you to a safe place during the darkness hour that’s soon to come on this earth.

I AM your Savior, and I love you my daughter and those that are with you are my, “called, chosen, and faithful.” My remnant and the anointed ones of the Most High.

Teach them, comfort them, encourage them and build them up. I AM always near for I AM with you always, says the LORD GOD of Hosts.  Selah… (Pause)
