VERNA’S DAILY DEVOTIONAL

WEDNESDAY JULY 3, 2019

 

JEREMIAH 24:7
I will give them hearts that recognize me as the Lord. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me wholeheartedly.

 

GOD WAS MAKING AN ANALOGY (TO JEREMIAH) ABOUT GOOD FIGS/BAD FIGS, IN REGARDS TO HIS PEOPLE. HE SAID HE WOULD BRING THE “GOOD FIGS” (HIS REMNANT) IN AND GIVE THEM NEW HEARTS, AND THEY WOULD BE HIS PEOPLE, AND HE WOULD BE THEIR GOD. HE WOULD GET RID OF THE “BAD FIGS” (THE UNFAITHFUL) BY SCATTERING THEM, AND SENDING WAR & FAMINE, AND ALL MANNER OF HORRORS UPON THEM.

WE KNOW THAT THIS PROPHECY HAS BEEN FULFILLED IN PART, FOR INDEED THE JEWS HAVE BEEN PERSECUTED, ATTACKED, IN & OUT OF SEVERAL WARS, AND SCATTERED ALL OVER THE GLOBE. 

Pray for the “PEACE of JERUSALEM” for on that GREAT DAY OF THE LORD’S RETURN, there will be lasting PEACE!

ALTHOUGH HE WAS REFERRING TO THOSE WHO HAD BEEN FAITHFUL/UNFAITHFUL TO HIM DURING AND FOLLOWING THE BABYLONIAN EXILE, WE KNOW THAT THERE REMAINS ANOTHER LEVEL OF FULFILLMENT BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY THE ENTIRETY OF THE PROPHECY HAS NOT BEEN FULFILLED – ONLY IN PART.

THE ULTIMATE FULFILLMENT OF HIS PEOPLE, THE FULL REMNANT RETURNING TO HIM WITH THEIR WHOLE HEARTS (NEW HEARTS), MEANS FOLLOWING MESSIAH YESHUA WHICH HAS NOT YET BEEN FULFILLED, AND WILL NOT BE SO UNTIL THE TRIBULATION PERIOD, AND MESSIAH’S RETURN TO SET UP HIS MILLENNIAL KINGDOM ON EARTH, AFTER WHICH ALL THOSE WHO REMAIN WILL FOLLOW HIM.

WHAT A GLORIOUS DAY THAT WILL BE! PRAY FOR THE “PEACE” OF JERUSALEM, FOR THAT IS THAT DAY WHEN MESSIAH RETURNS TO FULFILL THIS PROPHECY TO ITS COMPLETION.
