May 22: Jacob’s Trouble – God’s unique relationship with Israel

Israel’s unfaithfulness

Not much has changed.

Jeremiah 2:9-13

 “Therefore I will yet bring charges against you,” says the Lord,
“And against your children’s children I will bring charges.
For pass beyond the coasts of Cyprus and see,
Send to Kedar and consider diligently,
And see if there has been such a thing.
Has a nation changed its gods,
Which are not gods?
But My people have changed their Glory
For what does not profit.
Be astonished, O heavens, at this,
And be horribly afraid;
Be very desolate,” says the Lord.
“For My people have committed two evils:
They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters,
And hewn themselves cisterns—broken cisterns that can hold no water.

Jeremiah 2:19

Your own wickedness will correct you,
And your backslidings will rebuke you.
Know therefore and see that it is an evil and bitter thing
That you have forsaken the Lord your God,
And the fear of Me is not in you,”
Says the Lord God of hosts.

 

PRAY FOR ISRAEL TO RETURN TO GOD ON HIS TERMS, BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH IN YESHUA.
