We May Speak for God
May 19

Therefore thus saith the Lord, If thou return, then will I bring thee again, and thou shalt stand before me: and if thou take forth the precious from the vile, thou shalt be as my mouth. (Jeremiah 15:19)

Poor Jeremiah! Yet why do we say so? The weeping prophet was one of the choicest servants of God and honored by Him above many. He was hated for speaking the truth. The word which was so sweet to him was bitter to his hearers, yet he was accepted of his Lord. He was commanded to abide in his faithfulness, and then the Lord would continue to speak through him. He was to deal boldly and truthfully with men and perform the Lord’s winnowing work upon the professors of his day, and then the Lord gave him this word: “Thou shalt be as my mouth.”

What an honor! Should not every preacher, yea, every believer, covet it? For God to speak by us, what a marvel! We shall speak sure, pure truth; and we shall speak it with power. Our word shall not return void; it shall be a blessing to those who receive it, and those who refuse it shall do so at their peril. Our lips shall feed many. We shall arouse the sleeping and call the dead to life.
O dear reader, pray that it may be so with all the sent servants of our Lord.

    As students of the Eternal Word of God we know “being asleep” means dead in the grave . Then verse 16 says at that time the Lord will “descend with a shout.” Next we see the passage speaking of those that were asleep being caught up in the clouds with the Lord and then we “shall be caught up together with them in the clouds” to be with Jesus! So I ask.. where are the 7 years? Where are the 3.5 years? as far as I can see there won’t even be 3.5 nano-seconds of time between these prophecied events.

      Beverly, blessings and greetings in our Lord!
      Indeed the “timing” is quite different by His calculations than mankind’s. We keep our lamps full and wait as if the next second we shall see Him! With joy and antisipation! Until then those who have been adopted…SPEAK!! YES?
