THE LAMENTABLE CONDITION OF THE LAND

The lamentable condition of God’s people in Jeremiah’s time surrounds us today. But I said, "Ah, Sovereign LORD, the prophets keep telling them, you will not see the sword or suffer famine. Indeed, I will give you lasting peace in this place.” Then the Lord said to me, "The prophets are prophesying lies in my name. I have not sent them or appointed them or spoken to them. They are prophesying to you false visions, divinations, idolatries and the delusions of their own minds (Jeremiah 14:13-16).

Therefore, this is what the LORD says about the prophets who are prophesying in my name: I did not send them, yet they are saying, 'No sword or famine will touch this land.' Those same prophets will perish by sword and famine. And the people they are prophesying to will be thrown out into the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and sword. There will be no one to bury them, their wives, their sons or their daughters. I will pour out on them the calamity they deserve.

Likewise today the land is full of those who resist the truth under a cloud or words.
“As Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was”. 2 Timothy 3: 8-9.

“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and idle babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness. And their message will spread like cancer. Hymenaeus and Philetus are of this sort, who had strayed concerning the truth, saying that the resurrection is already past overthrowing the faith of some” 2 Timothy 2:15-20.

There is no fate as terrible as that which awaits those who have not only erred themselves, but have caused men to err by placing a stumbling block in the way of God’s people.

Better to be dumb, than speak words that destroy the faith of any. Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands having this seal:

"The Lord knows those who are His," and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity,but in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honour and some for dishonour. Judas’s are always to be found among disciples”.

These days Christians have to negotiate a minefield of error as never before. Corrupt men have crept in unawares says Jude. The doom of these false prophets will be terrible. Their fate will be the more awful because they have run without being sent: and prophesied without having heard or seen a vision. There has been no Divine force energizing their words. Position, prosperity and power are the incentives of their office.

Yet the people are culpable in this matter also because they have loved to have it so. Their corrupt morals have produced a corrupt priesthood, and a crop of false prophets. The men of whom we complain are a product of the stifling corruption of the age in which we live. They have produced a crop that cannot endure the simple truth of Divine word. Because these have refused to put away their sin, and return to the Lord in true repentance and consecration they must be held guilty before Him and suffer the consequences of their sin. “I will make them pay for their wickedness said the Lord” Jeremiah 14:17
