Their Restingplace

November 9 & 10
November 9 – Jeremiah 49-50 / Hebrews 7
November 10 – NO Daily Reading

GOD SAID:

Jeremiah 50:6 My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace.

GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

   Oh what a sad commentary for the children of Israel and Judah in Jeremiah 50:6. God refers to them here as “lost sheep.” They’re still His sheep, but they’ve followed other shepherds. Shepherds, leaders, who have caused them to follow after the wrong things, and to go astray. It says; “they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill,” People of that time burned incense to idols on these hills. God’s lost sheep had followed them to worship one idol on one hill, and then being led by another, to worship another idol on another hill. Never finding contentment. They’d forgotten “their restingplace” in the Lord.

   As I read that verse today I could not help but think of all the Christians and churches, especially in America in the twenty first century. It seems today that the sheep at times are lost. Wandering from this leader to that leader. Following this promise or that. Who has the best show? Who promises ME the most things. It’s not about doctrine anymore. It’s often not even about what the bible says on a subject. It’s simply what makes me feel good today. Then, when that doesn’t satisfy, well, they simply pick up and move to the next church down the road. Mountain, to mountain, to hill. Following man made religion. Until, they become burnt out with church, and just quit altogether. WHY? “…they have forgotten their restingplace.” JESUS!

GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

   In Matthew 11:28 Jesus says; “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” I’m not for re-writing scripture, but this could actually say, come unto me, and I will BE YOUR REST. Don’t forget Jesus, your restingplace.


Have you found that rest?

THE WEEK IN REVIEW:

    God is our refuge and strength. We can trust Him. We saw what happens when people do not Trust In the Lord this week in:

● There Is Hope
● Truth Be Told
● Take Time To Listen
● They Did Not Listen
● Time To Set Sail
● Their Restingplace

    No matter what many may say or promise, it’s always safer and secure when we just learn to Trust In the Lord.


SUNDAY:

        Today we suggest you read and study whatever the Lord has laid on your Pastors heart. Whatever scripture he uses for today’s messages were given to him by God for your specific needs

October 21, 2019 Isa. 59-62 1 Thess. 5
October 22, 2019 Isa. 63-66 2 Thess. 1-2

shall be safe.”

  1. Taking one scripture to suggest jewish people are a seperate group recieving salvation is againt the new covanant. Not only is there no greek or jew prophetically god was about to destroy the world but brought christ instead and divorced both judah and Israel. He cut down the olive tree he is the sprout out of that stump. He jesus is the new david. There is no other kingdom. The temple destroyed the spirit now is in the heart of the converted not in the sanhedren. Heaven is open to all no priest but christ.
