According to Apostle Paul, Christians inherit from the Jews, the nation God chose to bring Messiah into the world, the spiritual heritage of Almighty God. The thing is, that would mean the good and the bad, right?

So when Jeremiah confronts the Hebrew people, the Jews, does he not also confront us?

Baruch Writing Jeremiah’s Prophecies (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

1 “I wish that my head were {filled with} water
and my eyes were a fountain of tears
so that I could cry day and night
for my dear people who have been killed.
2 I wish I had a place to stay in the desert.
I would abandon my people and go away from them.
They are all adulterers,
a mob of traitors.
3 They use their tongues like bows that shoot arrows.
Lies and dishonesty rule the land.
They go from one evil thing to another,
and they don’t know me,” declares the Lord.
4 “Beware of your neighbors.
Don’t trust your relatives.
Every relative cheats.
Every neighbor goes around slandering.
5 Everyone cheats his neighbor.
No one speaks the truth.
My people train their tongues to speak lies.
They wear themselves out doing wrong.
6 Oppression follows oppression.
Deceit follows deceit.
They refuse to acknowledge me,” declares the Lord.”
(Jeremiah 9:1-6 God’s Word)

Are you the doer, the done to, or the weeper for the people? Or maybe, it depends on which day it is?

One thing is desperately clear, “So, people who think they are standing firmly should be careful that they don’t fall” (1 Corinthians 10:12 God’s Word).
