Key Verse: “Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, of Ahab the son of Kolaiah, and of Zedekiah the son of Maaseiah, which prophesy a lie unto you in my title; Behold, I’ll ship them into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon; and he shall slay them earlier than your eyes.” – (Jeremiah 29:21)
The religious environment for Israel on the time of captivity was actually appalling. Most of their religious leaders – the clergymen and prophets like Ahab, the son of Kolaiah and Zedekiah, the son of Maasaiah fouled the religious atmosphere the extra by declaring false prophecies concerning the state of Judah and Jerusalem.
They confused and compounded the issues of the captives who wanted the balm of fact to provoke the therapeutic course of for his or her spiritually wounded souls. Essentially the most excessive God was offended by the actions of those prophets and resolved to get rid of them in an uncommon method – by roasting them within the fireplace.
The Lord our God is a Choose and certainly a consuming fireplace. No man ought to provoke His wrath. He’ll avenge Himself of all who oppose and insurgent towards His will and objective on earth. God’s wrath additionally fell on one other false prophet – Shemaiah the Nehelamite who deceived the remnants with lies and taught insurrection towards God. The Lord punished him by withdrawing from him the ability to supply or increase any male baby in Israel.
Leaders in the home of God, in addition to believers, should take heed to what they do and train among the many congregation as a result of the Lord is the Head and Choose of His home. He won’t spare depraved leaders amongst His individuals.
Thought For The Day: The depraved shall not go unpunished.
