SRH: Watchman: How Many Weak Christians Were Duped Into Believing That God Would Restore the Greatness of Sodom and Gomorrah, USA? Far Too Many Those Who Remained in the Land (After Requesting Jeremiah to Pray for Them) Refused to Submit to God’s Will or Turn From Their Sins, Even After the Defeat and Destruction of God’s People. The Way Is Constrained and Brief. Do the Majority of Christians in America Genuinely Hold God’s Word to Be True? Job 12:23 and Psalm 9:17 (KJV) Instead, They Put Their Trust in Their False, Worthless Idols.
“Peace, peace,” they say, when there is no peace. (Jeremiah 6:14)
And please make no mistake about who the intended audience was for Jeremiah’s prophecies. His audience was the people of God, those who claimed to serve and worship the Creator of the universe, Yahweh (the LORD), and those who claimed to follow his laws and teachings.
To whom can I speak and give warning? Who will listen to me? Their ears are closed so they cannot hear.
The word of the LORD is offensive to them; they find no pleasure in it.
But I am full of the wrath of the LORD, and I cannot hold it in.
“Pour it out on the children in the street and on the young men gathered together; both husband and wife will be caught in it, and the old, those weighed down with years. Their houses will be turned over to others, together with their fields and their wives, when I stretch out my hand against those who live in the land,” declares the LORD.
“From the least to the greatest, all are greedy for gain; prophets and priests alike, all practice deceit.” (Jeremiah 6:10-13)
Jeremiah stated that all the alleged believers of his day, including their leaders (prophets and priests), were guilty of being “greedy.”
“Greed” is not a sin that is frequently talked about these days, but for the ancient people of God, it was one of the worst sins, and was equated with “idolatry.”
Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming. (Colossians 3:5-6)
They have become callous and have given themselves up to sensuality, greedy to practice every kind of impurity. (Ephesians 4:19)
The English word “greed”, as it is used in modern times, really does not accurately reflect the original biblical language the Bible was written in, where the concept behind the English word “greed” was far more evil.
It is best defined by Jesus himself, who told a “parable” to fully explain the meaning of “greed.”
Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”
And he told them this parable: “The ground of a certain rich man produced a good crop. He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’
“Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods.
And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of good things laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”‘
“But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’
“This is how it will be with anyone who stores up things for himself but is not rich toward God.” (Luke 12:15-21)
The “greed” Jesus explains about here, is not the actual storage of grains and goods, but the motive the man in this parable had in storing more grains and goods than he needed as a hedge against the future so that he could “Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”
We are not supposed to plan on a “life of ease” in this current age and the world system controlled by Satan. We are supposed to have a warrior mindset to do battle against evil, and in this mindset, there is no “peace” in this world system.
Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.
For I have come to turn “a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law– a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.”
Anyone who loves his father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves his son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and anyone who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me.
Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. (Matthew 10:34-39)
This is almost the exact opposite of what American Christianity teaches today.
For those of you still in the corporate churches, when is the last time you heard or read a “Christian” message about opposing your family by treating them as your enemies, or losing your life for the sake of following Christ?
The fact is that most of the teaching in the Christian churches today amounts to greed and idolatry. With this $trillion industry called “Christianity,” the predominant teaching is to obey the Government, store up finances to provide for your children’s education, save up for your eventual “retirement” where you can kick back and “enjoy life,” etc.
But this teaching is found nowhere in the scriptures.
The teaching of Jesus and the other leaders was a teaching of entering into battle, forsaking all earthly riches or ties, including family ties, for the sake of the cause of exposing evil and RESISTING it.
Think about all the heroes of the faith that are portrayed in the Bible, and count how many of those faithful believers had “good Christian” families.
I’ll save you the effort, because I have read and studied the Bible for over 40 years now, and there are no model biological families anywhere in the Scriptures. None. It is a myth.
The life of true believers is always characterized by extreme persecution and suffering, including incarceration and death, because our hope is not in this life, but the life to come.
Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. (Colossians 3:1-5)
“Idolatry” is defined as desiring the things of this world that we do not have, rather than depending upon God to meet all of our needs, knowing that the “easy life” awaits us in the future in the Kingdom of God, and not in this world.
There is no peace for the USA, only judgment. And each day we get closer to that judgment which is imminent now.
But there is peace for those who choose to enter into the battle and forsake idolatry and the things that this world offers.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. (Words of Jesus in John 14:27)
