Jeremiah 22-23/Matthew 10-11
The God of details, He watches over His people.
OT – 23:1 “I will send disaster upon the leaders of my people – the shepherds of my sheep – for they have destroyed and scattered the very ones they were expected to care for,” says the LORD.
:5-6 “For the time is coming, “ says the LORD, “when I will place a righteous Branch on King David’s throne. He will be a King who rules with wisdom. He will do what is just and right throughout the land. And this is his name: ‘The LORD Is Our Righteousness.’ In that day Judah will saved, and Israel will live in safety.”
OT Flash Points
Don’t say, “The Lord said …”
Just repent & do the deeds of the life of repentance
Or you will be disowned
NT – 10:28-31 “Don’t be afraid of those who want to kill you. They can only kill your body; they cannot touch your soul. Fear only God, who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Not even a sparrow, worth only half a penny, can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to him than a whole flock of sparrows.”
NT Flash Point
Revelation comes to those who are helpless, broken, children
Come to Me
God has got you. Not the other way around. He is doing all that He is doing for one purpose – that He can say, This is My man, My woman. We must be in God’s hand so that He can plant men on the Rock as He has planted us.
