TOPIC: Limiting God (DCLM Every day Manna 12 July 2022)
TEXT: Jeremiah 25:12-29 (KJV)
12 And it shall come to cross, when seventy years are achieved, that I’ll punish the king of Babylon, and that nation, saith the Lord, for his or her iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans, and can make it perpetual desolations.
13 And I’ll carry upon that land all my phrases which I’ve pronounced towards it, even all that’s written on this ebook, which Jeremiah hath prophesied towards all of the nations.
14 For a lot of nations and nice kings shall serve themselves of them additionally: and I’ll recompense them in keeping with their deeds, and in keeping with the works of their very own palms.
15 For thus saith the Lord God of Israel unto me; Take the wine cup of this fury at my hand, and trigger all of the nations, to whom I ship thee, to drink it.
16 They usually shall drink, and be moved, and be mad, due to the sword that I’ll ship amongst them.
17 Then took I the cup on the Lord’s hand, and made all of the nations to drink, unto whom the Lord had despatched me:
18 To wit, Jerusalem, and the cities of Judah, and the kings thereof, and the princes thereof, to make them a desolation, an astonishment, an hissing, and a curse; as it’s this present day;
19 Pharaoh king of Egypt, and his servants, and his princes, and all his folks;
20 And all of the mingled folks, and all of the kings of the land of Uz, and all of the kings of the land of the Philistines, and Ashkelon, and Azzah, and Ekron, and the remnant of Ashdod,
21 Edom, and Moab, and the kids of Ammon,
22 And all of the kings of Tyrus, and all of the kings of Zidon, and the kings of the isles that are past the ocean,
23 Dedan, and Tema, and Buz, and all which might be within the utmost corners,
24 And all of the kings of Arabia, and all of the kings of the mingled those that dwell within the desert,
25 And all of the kings of Zimri, and all of the kings of Elam, and all of the kings of the Medes,
26 And all of the kings of the north, far and close to, one with one other, and all of the kingdoms of the world, that are upon the face of the earth: and the king of Sheshach shall drink after them.
27 Due to this fact thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Drink ye, and be drunken, and spue, and fall, and rise no extra, due to the sword which I’ll ship amongst you.
28 And it shall be, in the event that they refuse to take the cup at thine hand to drink, then shalt thou say unto them, Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Ye shall actually drink.
29 For, lo, I start to carry evil on the town which known as by my identify, and may ye be completely unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished: for I’ll name for a sword upon all of the inhabitants of the earth, saith the Lord of hosts.
KEY VERSE: “And it shall be, in the event that they refuse to take the cup at thine hand to drink, then shalt thou say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Ye shall actually drink” (JEREMIAH 25:28).
Many don’t get to know the omnipotence of God till they’re mired in near-death adversity. They name upon Him and He mercifully delivers them. That drives them to acknowledge that there’s certainly an omnipotent Lord. Others, like Saul of Tarsus, would solely come to know Him when He intercepts them as they head for a distant land to persecute His folks.
In Jeremiah’s day, the godless nations within the Palestine area, which felt that the sovereignty of the God of Israel was restricted to Jewish territory, skilled His rule over all of the universe. After the Lord gave a cost to Babylon to beat Judah and exile its residents as punishment for its sin towards Him, He despatched Jeremiah to ship a message to different international locations exterior Israel. They have been to drink God’s “wine cup of… fury”. It was heaven’s judgment towards the encompassing nations that maltreated Israel.
God would all the time take care of His folks once they act opposite to His will. However to show that He was not a regional God, He wouldn’t be detached to the ungodly works of these exterior the orbit of Israel. If He didn’t, these nations would suppose that the God of Israel was impotent, with no authority over them.
The God of Israel is the God of all flesh who workouts management over all. Whether or not unbelievers acknowledge Him or not doesn’t detract from His omnipotence. He has an appointed time to terminate man’s evil system. Then would He punish His enemies and reward those that acknowledge Him because the all-powerful Lord.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
God is unstoppable!
