If It Was All Over With, Then Why Did The Lord Send A Prophet?

“Stand in the gate of the LORD’s house (and Kings Jeremiah 17:19), and proclaim there this word!” -Jeremiah 7:1

How many times I have heard people give up on their own people and their own country is more than can be numbered.  If it is not the professors in the Church that are saying that this is the end and that there is nothing that they can do, then it is the politicians acting out and parroting the same.  Yet, the reality is that the present position and state of America is the fruit of both (Galatians 6:7), who have left off their own duty and obligations before the Lord.

“Thy way and thy doings have procured these things unto thee; this is thy wickedness, because it is bitter, because it reacheth unto thine heart.” -Jeremiah 4:18

In fact, if what they were saying was true, then the Lord would not have sent a prophet!

In Chapter 7, the word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD was:

“Stand in the gate of the LORD’s house (and Kings Jeremiah 17:19), and proclaim there this word, and say, Hear the word of the LORD, all ye of Judah, that enter in at these gates to worship the LORD.

Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place.

Trust ye not in lying words…

For if ye throughly amend your ways and your doings; if ye throughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbour;

If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt:

Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever.”

I think of the preacher of righteousness, Noah (2 Peter 2:5).  I think of Moses and Joshua, who led the children of Israel into the Promised Land, that is, if they took heed to their leadings (1 Corinthians 10:1-5).  I think of Abraham making intercession for the Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 18:23-33), the prophets sent to preserve His people in the Book of Judges, major prophets such as Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel, the small prophets such as Amos, Jonah, etc…. And in the New Testament, prophets such as Jesus, John the Baptist, Agabus and Peter all bringing forth the same message: “Save yourselves from this untoward generation” (Acts 2:40).

How many countries in the past, and in the present, would the Lord have preserved if only they would have amended their ways before Him?

The message of the prophet sent from the Lord is always clear:  Either accept the message, repent and turn from your wicked ways in keeping His judgments and statutes (Matthew 3:2; Deuteronomy 4:6; Isaiah 58:12), which is the fruit of repentance (2 Corinthians 7:10-11) or reject the message to your own demise.
