Jeremiah, Chapter 12
In Chapter 12, we have, (1). The prophet's humble complaint to God of the success that wicked people had in their wicked practices (v. 1-2) and his appeal to God concerning his own honesty (v. 3). He prays that God would, for the sake of the public, bring the wickedness of the wicked to an end (v. 3-4). (2). God rebukes the prophet for his uneasiness at his present troubles, telling him to prepare for yet greater trouble (v. 5-6). (3). We see a gloomy lamentation of the present deplorable state of the Israel of God (v. 7-13). (4). An indication of mercy to God's people, in a condemnation of wrath against their neighbors that helped advance their affliction, that they would be plucked out; but with a promise that if they would at last join themselves with the people of God they would become sharers with them in their privileges (v. 14-17). A return from captivity is promised to those who rerpent.
Chapter 12 brings us to a very evil period in the life of the nation, and the only light remaining, is Jeremiah. Josiah has been killed, Jeremiah has been forced to leave his hometown, and evil men have come to the throne. Conditions seemed only to get worse and worse. At this point in Jeremiah’s life, he has doubts come into his heart. Dark thoughts come into his mind, and he wonders . . . WHY does God allow certain things to happen? I think every TRUE Christian has these same thoughts at certain times in their lives. https://www.godcannotlie.org/true_children_of_god.htm Every pastor or teacher who has ever stood firm for the things of God at times wonders WHY God does not move and make things right. We look around and see that it is the righteous people who suffer the most . . . the godliest people seem to have more trouble than anyone else. WHY does God permits this? Even David questioned God when he saw the wickedness: Ps. 37:35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree. (KJV) And too, Job: Job 5:3 I have seen the foolish taking root: but suddenly I cursed his habitation. (KJV)
Read now as Jeremiah talks to the LORD.
The Success That Wicked People Had in Their Wicked Practices (Jer. 12:1-2)
Jer. 12:1 Righteous art thou, O LORD, when I plead with thee: yet let me talk with thee of thy judgments: Wherefore doth the way of the wicked prosper? wherefore are all they happy that deal very treacherously? (KJV)
Righteous art thou, O LORD, when I plead with thee . . . the prophet begin to recognize God's unquestionable righteousness and justice, in all His wise dispensations in the government of the world.
Yet let me talk with thee of thy judgments . . . Jeremiah is not in any away accusing the LORD of wrong, but for his own satisfaction, is concerned of God’s judicial exemptions in His the governing of the world.
Wherefore doth the way of the wicked prosper? . . . why are all those so happy that deal so wickedy?
Wherefore are all they happy that deal very treacherously? . . . by all they, Jeremiah means most of them, and some think it was to have been spoken with a special relation to the priests at Anathoth, that had conspired against his life. The prosperity of the wicked has always, in all times been a puzzle, and a painful question to the best of God's people: to Jeremiah: (Jer.5:11; 12:1, 6); to Job: (Job 21:7, 13); to David: (Ps. 37:1; 73:3; 94:3-4) and to Habakkuk: (Hab. 1:4-5). Jeremiah says, LORD I know Your ways of providence are just and righteous, but they are dark and hidden from me, I cannot understand why you are doing this.
Jer. 12:2 Thou hast planted them, yea, they have taken root: they grow, yea, they bring forth fruit: thou art near in their mouth, and far from their reins. (KJV)
Here is a people that talk of You, LORD, but one that observe You with their mouths, and would judge You only if You are near to them, and they had communion with You. But You are He that watches their lives can easily see that You are far from their hearts. They have neither fear of You, nor love for You, nor desire for You, nor delight in You, neither are they obedient to You; yet You have planted them by Your power, and by Your providence they thrive, go on and prosper.
*****Oh LORD, these people talk about You, but they are so far from You, and still they prosper. Why do You allow that? That was Jeremiah's question. That is the question many people ask! I certainly do not have the answer, neither were Jeremiah or David ever able to answer it either. God does allow the wicked to prosper, and we all see them spreading themselves like a green bay tree (Ps. 37:35). The only answer I have is:
Isa. 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. (KJV)
Jeremiah’s Appeal to God about His Own Honesty (Jer. 12:3)
Jer. 12:3 But thou, O LORD, knowest me: thou hast seen me, and tried mine heart toward thee: pull them out like sheep for the slaughter, and prepare them for the day of slaughter. (KJV)
But thou, O LORD, knowest me: thou hast seen me, and tried my heart toward thee . . . O LORD, You know the sincerity of my heart before and towards thee, You gave me my prophetical office, and You know me (Ps.139:1). I have been faithful in revealing to the people what You have revealed to me. You have tried my heart (Jer.11:20).
Pull them out like sheep for the slaughter . . . yet for this, they seek my life and want to kill me. Pull out, as a rooted tree (Jer.12:2).
And prepare them for the day of slaughter . . . O LORD, avenge me of this wicked generation, confirm the words against them which I have from You, that condemns.
Prepare is literally, to separate, or set apart as devoted. Day of slaughter (Jam.5:5).
Prayer That God Would Bring the
Wickedness of the Wicked to an End (Jer. 12:4)
Jer. 12:4 How long shall the land mourn, and the herbs of every field wither, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein? the beasts are consumed, and the birds; because they said, He shall not see our last end. (KJV)
How long shall the land mourn, and the herbs of every field wither . . . a land is said to mourn, symbolically, when it is brought to look unpleasant, the grass, green herbs and trees in it being destroyed by enemies, or drought, or vermin. Land mourns: (Isa.24:4; Jer.14:2-6; 23:10).
For the wickedness of them that dwell therein? . . . Jeremiah seems to give a reason of his former passion and prayer against those wicked men he before spoke of, because they were the cause of the nation's ruin, which is also declared by the psalmist (Ps.107:34) and Isaiah (Isa.32:13-15). For the wickedness: Ps.107:34 A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein. (KJV)
The beasts are consumed, and the birds . . . the effects of their wickedness reached to the actual beasts and birds, because these people were so arrogant as to think that they could do well enough on their own, neither the prophet nor any other would see their end. Beasts: (Jer.4:25; Eze.38:20; Hos. 4:3; Zep.1:2-3).
Because they said, He shall not see our last end . . . the people said that the LORD did not know what was about to happen to them (Ps.10:11; Jer. 5:12; Eze.8:12; 9:9). One version says, The prophet (Jeremiah, to whom the whole context refers) shall not see our last end. We need not trouble ourselves about his frightening predictions. We shall not be destroyed as he says (Jer. 5:12-13).
*****How long shall the land mourn . . . in other words, O LORD, why don't You do something? Dear one, I think God's answer to Jeremiah and to us today is one that we need to accept . . . God knows exactly what He is doing, all the time!
Remember how Jeremiah began this passage, Righteous art thou, O LORD. What God is doing today, no matter how strange it may seem to us, is right, and we will be able to see and understand it someday. This is where faith comes in! 2 Cor. 5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) (KJV)
At that particular time, only Jeremiah stood for God. Jehoiakim was a corrupt ruler, and was on the throne. Things are getting worse, and he wonders what is going to happen. God has already assured Jeremiah that He will take care of the situation. Jer. 11:16 The LORD called thy name, A green olive tree, fair, and of goodly fruit: with the noise of a great tumult he hath kindled fire upon it, and the branches of it are broken. (KJV) . . . Paul refers to this saying that the good olive tree has been cut off and set aside. Rom.11:17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; (KJV) . . . That is exactly what God did to these people. And today, out of that same Root, He is bringing forth a wild olive tree . . . that being you and me . . . the church has been grafted into that Root, and that Root is Christ Jesus! He is the root out of a dry ground (Isa.53:2), and He and only He can bring us eternal life in Heaven. God tells Jeremiah that He will take care of this. God has a plan which extends far beyond the circumstances that Jeremiah could see and us as well! We must be wise and trust Him as Jeremiah did!
God's Reply to Jeremiah's Complaint
Jer. 12:5 If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan? (KJV)
That this is the answer of the LORD to the prophet is fairly well agreed by the best interpreters, as also that this is a well-known expression; but as to the application of it in this place, some disagree. Some think it to be: If you do not understand what is done by the people of your own city, how do you think you will be able to understand My wisdom in the government of the world? If you are not able to handle lesser dangers, how will you be able to overcome greater troubles?
The LORD tells Jeremiah that he would have greater dangers to encounter than those he was exposed to at Anathoth. If he was so disturbed with them, who are but as footmen, how wilt you be able to deal with those far greater enemies which you are likely to meet with at Jerusalem?
*****I think this is really what God is saying to Jeremiah: If you are troubled now by what things are going to happen, things are going to get much worse. If you are troubled now, what are you going to do when it really gets bad?
Dear one, things may look bad to us today, but they are going to get worse. I cannot help but think of the following: Gen. 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. (KJV) . . . This seems to be happening today! I hope the knowledge of that will help draw you closer to the LORD God. He does not explain all the details to us as we might wish He would, but He does tell us all we need to know and that we can always trust Him to always do the right thing. God wants only the best for His children. Believe Him (1 Jn.5:10), and have faith in His only begotten Son (Jn.3:16-17), to save you (1 Jn.5:11-13).
1 Jn. 5:10-13 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. 11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. (KJV)
Jn. 3:16-17 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (KJV) . . . See Special Comments at the end of this Chapter for more on things getting worse.
Jer. 12:6 For even thy brethren, and the house of thy father, even they have dealt treacherously with thee; yea, they have called a multitude after thee: believe them not, though they speak fair words unto thee. (KJV)
The men of Anathoth, Jeremiah’s own town and country, were those of his own family, and have conspired evil against him secretly. They had called a multitude to go after him; they had exposed him to the rage and violence of a multitude, and they have accused him to this multitude. Even though they gave him many fair words, yet there was no trust or confidence in them. Jeremiah was not to believe them, but watch out for himself.
Lamentation of the Present Disgraceful
State of the Israel of God (Jer. 12:7-13)
Jer. 12:7 I have forsaken mine house, I have left mine heritage; I have given the dearly beloved of my soul into the hand of her enemies. (KJV)
I have forsaken mine house, I have left mine heritage . . . by Mine House, God here means the Temple, which God is said here to have forsaken with respect to His Gracious Appearances in it to the people that came there to worship Him. By Mine heritage, God means the whole body of the Israelites, called God's heritage not only in this chapter, but in (Jer. 2:7; 12:7-9; 50:11; Joel 2:17; Mic. 7:14; 1 Pet.5:3): whom God threatened to leave with respect to His special providence, by which He had taken care of them . . . upon which reason Canaan is called the land which God cared for (Deut.11:12); so cared for, when compared with them He might seem to neglect all other countries.
I have given the dearly beloved of my soul into the hands of her enemies . . . He had given that nation which was once His dearly beloved into the hands or power of their enemies.
Dearly beloved of my soul . . . symbol of a wife (Jer.2:2; 3:14; 11:15; Isa.54:5; Hos.3:1).
Jer. 12:8 Mine heritage is unto me as a lion in the forest; it crieth out against me: therefore have I hated it. (KJV)
God’s heritage turned against Him, and cried out against Him . . . that being the reason why the LORD’S Heart is alienated from them . . . because they changed from meek sheep of His fold, to a ravaging lion in the forest! Those that were as God’s sheep, followed Him as their Chief Shepherd (1 Pet.5:4) and paid heed to the guidance of the prophets and pastors which He had set over them . . . but now have become like wild, hungry lions roaring against the LORD, and rending, tearing and killing the prophets which God sent to them (Mat.23:31; Lk.11:47). 1 Thes.2:15 Who both killed the LORD Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men: (KJV)
Jer. 12:9 Mine heritage is unto me as a speckled bird, the birds round about are against her; come ye, assemble all the beasts of the field, come to devour. (KJV)
Mine heritage is unto me as a speckled bird . . . speckled in the Hebrew means to dye or color. Interpreters differ here, whether to interpret it of a bird colored by nature, and therefore speckled, or by accident, as ravenous birds are colored by the blood of other birds killed by them.
The birds round about are against her; come ye, assemble all the beasts of the field, come to devour . . . some interpret this as a reflection upon the Jews for their cruelty, colored by their oppression and innocent bloodshed. Others think it is a mixture of superstition and idolatry . . . and could be understood of either, because the Jews were very guilty of both, and it is God that caused the birds to come against her, and the beasts of the field to devour them. Assemble all the beasts of the field . . . the Chaldeans are told to gather the surrounding heathen peoples as allies against Judah (Isa.56:9; Eze.34:5).
Jer. 12:10 Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness. (KJV)
By pastors, most here think this means political persons, not church officers, but they are divided, some interpreting it of the rulers and princes of Nebuchadnezzar's army (Jer.6:3; 12:12), who took Jerusalem, and destroyed Judah, called God's vineyard (Isa.5:1-2, 5). Others think it is the rulers of the Jews, who by their wicked government had ruined their country, and caused God to turn the country which He had chosen for His portion (Deut.32:9; Zec.2:12) and declared such a pleasure in, into a barren, deserted wilderness, not only sparsely inhabited, but completely desolate. Trodden My portion: (Isa.63:18).
Jer. 12:11 They have made it desolate, and being desolate it mourneth unto me; the whole land is made desolate, because no man layeth it to heart. (KJV)
They have made it desolate . . . this is God speaking, so this must be understood either of Nebuchadnezzar, or of the people or the rulers as the cause; and in that remorseful state into which their sins had brought it.
And being desolate it mourneth unto me . . . the land itself cried out to God (Jer.12:4-8; 14:2; 23:10; Zec.7:5).
The whole land is made desolate, because no man layeth it to heart . . . the one great cause of this painful judgment upon the land, was the people not laying to heart (Jer.5:3), not seriously considering, what God was doing against it. Because none by repentance and prayer tried to find a way to stop God's wrath.
Jer. 12:12 The spoilers are come upon all high places through the wilderness: for the sword of the LORD shall devour from the one end of the land even to the other end of the land: no flesh shall have peace. (KJV)
The spoilers are come upon all high places through the wilderness . . . the prophets (as very often) speaks of something as already done, which had not yet happened, but was very shortly to be done.
For the sword of the LORD shall devour from the one end of the land even to the other end of the land: . . . Jeremiah said that they were come up because they would come up, and no place would be too high that they could not climb it, none so strong that they could not subdue them. The sword of the enemy is called the sword of the LORD, because it was the LORD that ordered and was successful in it, even though the enemy was God’s tool.
No flesh shall have peace . . . by no flesh, he means no ranks, no orders of men would have any peace! All would suffer!
Jer. 12:13 They have sown wheat, but shall reap thorns: they have put themselves to pain, but shall not profit: and they shall be ashamed of your revenues because of the fierce anger of the LORD. (KJV)
They have sown wheat, but shall reap thorns . . . the Earth's bringing forth thorns and thistles was part of the curse for the first transgression of man (Gen.3:18). God's attacking the labors of husbandmen is often threatened as a punishment of sin (Lev.26:16; Deut.28:38).
They have put themselves to pain, but shall not profit . . . that they would labor in vain, all the works of their hands, all their counsels and deliberations, would be of no profit or benefit to them.
They shall be ashamed of your revenues because of the fierce anger of the LORD . . . the fierce anger of God against them shall be so revealed, that the returns of their labors or estates, the profits of their trades, would be so small that they shall be ashamed of them.
Mic. 6:15 Thou shalt sow, but thou shalt not reap; thou shalt tread the olives, but thou shalt not anoint thee with oil; and sweet wine, but shalt not drink wine. (KJV)
An Indication of Mercy to God's People,
And Nations Around (Jer. 12:14-17)
Jer. 12:14 Thus saith the LORD against all mine evil neighbours, that touch the
inheritance which I have caused my people Israel to inherit; Behold, I will pluck them out of their land, and pluck out the house of Judah from among them. (KJV)
The LORD will not be angry forever with His own people, nor will He allow the rod of the wicked to rest for ever upon the back of the righteous. Those that are evil neighbors, the nations bordering Judea (which God calls His inheritance), upon which He calls His neighbors, who touched His inheritance, not by living next door, but by greed to do Judah hurt, insulting them when the Hand of God was upon them, and contributing to their affliction and misery by helping their enemies against them, as did the Edomites, Philistines and Moabites. God will also pluck them out of their land, and will bring the sword upon them also, and they shall be led into captivity.
Jer. 12:15 And it shall come to pass, after that I have plucked them out I will return, and have compassion on them, and will bring them again, every man to his heritage, and every man to his land. (KJV)
This not only seems to be a prophecy of the Jews' return to their land after the fulfilling of the years of their captivity, but also of the bringing back of these nations after that they would be plucked up, and seems to tell to the calling of the Gentiles . . . but this prophecy must be limited by what follows in the next verse, and not understood by all the citizens of those nations.
*****The LORD will return, and have compassion on them. This is a Promise of restoration after the captivity, and also is an indication that some of their enemies would turn to the TRUE God with them; learn the ways of His people; specifically, would avoid idols, and take the LORD for their God; and be built in the midst of His people, that is, Jew and Gentile forming ONE Church of the Most High. Gal. 3:25-29 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. 26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. (KJV)
Jer. 12:16 And it shall come to pass, if they will diligently learn the ways of my people, to swear by my name, The LORD liveth; as they taught my people to swear by Baal; then shall they be built in the midst of my people. (KJV)
Even though these people were evil neighbours and heathens, IF they would leave their idolatries and superstitious ways of worship, and learn to worship and serve the TRUE God, as His people do and would worship Him, and swear by His Name, The LORD liveth; and pay that homage to the Living and TRUE God; owning Him alone as the fountain of life (Ps.36:9; Pro.14:27), and searcher of the hearts (Ps.44:21; 64:6; Jer.17:10) . . . for there is a great respect paid to the TRUE God in swearing by His Name only, which reveals the great irreverence and wickedness of other oaths. God said that He will bless and prosper them also, and they shall not only have a portion in the Earth, but also amongst God’s people; which was fulfilled in the conversion of the Gentiles (Rom.11:17); they were originally wild olives, and grafted in among the Jews, and with them made partakers of the root and fatness of the olive tree. Swear by My Name: (Jer.4:2; Isa.19:18; 65:16); meaning to confess seriously the TRUE God.
*****Verse sixteenth is apparently a Promise of the conversion of the Gentiles.
Eph. 2:12-22 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: 13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. 14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; 15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; 16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: 17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. 18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. 19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
Eph 2:20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; 21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the LORD: 22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit. (KJV)
Jer. 12:17 But if they will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, saith the LORD. (KJV)
But for those nations who will NOT obey, whether they be Jews or Gentiles, if they continue in their idolatrous and superstitious courses, if they refuse the Messiah, and continue in unbelief, and if they go on in courses of rebellion and disobedience, saith the LORD, I will utterly destroy that people. Isa. 60:12 For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted. (KJV)
*****Several of them did not obey, and were destroyed. Of the Moabites, Ammonites, and Chaldeans, not one trace remains. Isa. 60:12 For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted. (KJV)
I think this is really what God is saying to Jeremiah: If you are troubled now by what things are going to happen, things are going to get much worse. If you are troubled now, what are you going to do when it really gets bad?
Dear one, things may look bad to us today, but they are going to get worse. I cannot help but think of the following: Gen. 6:5-8 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. (KJV)
When I think of good, righteous Noah, and all that he went through by following the command of God, to build a ‘boat’ in the middle of the desert . . . it amazes me. I wonder how many times that Noah, like Jeremiah, had questions for God. But, like Jeremiah, Noah kept on doing as God had told him to do. Can you imagine the insults, the laughter, the ridicule?
What I am trying to get across to you is this . . . The Passage above in Genesis states: every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually . . . that was in Noah’s time. . . but what about today? Anyone who turns on the news, can clearly see that these same words apply to us today. Wickedness is getting worse and worse with each passing day! Only a meager few (Mat.7:14) survived the Flood. Gen. 7:13 In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark; (KJV)
IF God put an end to wickedness then, why wouldn’t He do it today? My answer. . . He shall do that, in His timing, not ours.
What Are the Bible Signs of the End Times?
When Noah warned the people of God's coming judgment and certain destruction, they would not listen. Instead they treated Noah as a fanatic, building a boat in the middle of the desert. Because the people would NOT listen to the warnings . . . when the destruction he predicted came, the people were not prepared.
Dear one, we no longer have Noah . . . but we do have the Bible, and we do have people who are concerned about lost souls headed for Hell and they too warn of impending judgment that is sure to come. Just as it was in the days of Noah and Lot, the soon Coming of the LORD Jesus will trap people who refuse to heed the warning and give their lives to Him.
Luke 17:26-30 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. (KJV) . . . As it was in the days of Noah, so too it will be when Christ Returns at the Rapture.
PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO GOD! I believe there is amazing evidence that we are living in the end times. The Bible gives us signs that are clear for all to see, even for the scoffers who stubbornly argue against it. Yes. It is true that people throughout history have been proclaiming that they were living in the last days and the end of the world was nigh, and some of the Bible signs have always existed from the early days. 2 Peter 3:8-9 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the LORD as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The LORD is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (KJV) . . . Unbelievers simply refuse to believe what God clearly states in His Holy Word! Jesus WILL Came again! And IF your name is not in the book of life (Lk.10:20; Rev.20:15), you shall be left behind when Jesus comes at the Rapture (1 Thes.4:13-18), and you will have to go through the Tribulation Period (Rev.ch.6-18). You do NOT want to be there!
Never has there been a time before when ALL the events stated in the Bible were evident in so many different places and with such frequency and intensity. Our Generation is the first generation to fulfill ALL the Biblical signs. I have never set dates of times and I never will. Only a fool does that. I simply want to warn anyone who will listen that the Second Coming of Christ Jesus is NEAR!
