But Jeremiah said, “They will not give you over. Please obey the LORD in what I am saying to you, that it may go well with you and you may live. Jeremiah 38:20
Jeremiah was once again cast into to prison and left for day for speaking the truth of God. However there was one King who actually wanted to know what God had to say and rescued Jeremiah. King Zedekiah told Jeremiah “Do not hide anything from me” (Jeremiah 38:14)
King Zedekiah wanted Jeremiah to give it to him straight about what God had to say. He didn’t want a watered down version, he wanted the Truth. Because Jeremiah told him the truth he saved Jeremiahs life.
The message was simple, Obey God and you will live. If you disobey God you are going to die from the wages of everyones sins
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths. 2 Timothy 4:3-4
Today we have the same issue, nobody wants to hear the truth. Nobody wants to hear the Word of God, and those who do speak truth are persecuted for their faith. Just like Jeremiah, don’t compromise! God will deliver you!
We have many churches and Christians who have “watered down” the gospel or changed doctrines to please or not offend people. Give it to them straight, speak truth. Because when we die its to late , only Jesus Christ can save your soul Amen!
