More GREAT QUOTES -Mostly Sermonindex

“I am not permitted to let my love be so merciful as to tolerate and endure false doctrine.

A Word of the Lord in the Time of Captivity

In Jeremiah 32, we find the prophet Jeremiah imprisoned by Zedekiah, King of Judah, for speaking the word of the Lord to him concerning the Babylonian siege of Jerusalem and the impending captivity of the Israelites. At this point in time, the Babylonians have closed in on the city of Jerusalem and in a short while will take control of it and burn it down. Jeremiah, however, in his imprisonment receives a word from the Lord that he is about to be approached by his uncle Hanamel with an invitation… Read more A Word of the Lord in the Time of Captivity
