205 - Jeremiah's first message

Kathleen's thoughts

Jeremiah 2: 1-37, 3: 1-5
Zephaniah 1: 1-8, 2: 1-15

Israel's early love for God
The sin of Israel's leaders
The Lord's plea
The results of unfaithfulness
The sins of Judah
Judah''s false confidence
Exhortations to repentance
The coming of judgement
A plea for repentance
Judgment against the nations.

When one reads through the scriptures of today's readings it's about the dreadful road the nations walked in over the many years worshipping idols and walking in the evil ways of witchcraft etc and what it caused themselves in the destruction's and God's anger against them because they did evil in the eyes of the Lord God.

Jeremiah 2: 13 For My people have committed a double evil; They have abandoned Me, the FOUNTAIN OF LIVING WATER, and dug cisterns for themselves, cracked cisterns that cannot hold water.
