(ch5) 30 An astonishing and horrible thing Has been committed in the land: 31 The prophets prophesy falsely, And the priests rule by their own power; And My people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end?(ch6) 13 Because from the least of them even to the greatest of them, Everyone is given to covetousness; And from the prophet even to the priest, Everyone deals falsely. 14 They have also healed the hurt of My people slightly, Saying, Peace, peace! When there is no peace. 15 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? No! They were not at all ashamed; Nor did they know how to blush. Therefore they shall fall among those who fall; At the time I punish them, They shall be cast down, says the LORD.
jeremiah 2:19 19Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee. Know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter that thou hast forsaken the LORD thy God, and that the fear of Me is not in thee," saith the Lord GOD of hosts."the fear of Me is not in thee"this phrase stuck out to me. the question we have to ask ourselves are: does our life show the fear of God? does the way we live daily magnify God? if there is no fear of God in our lives or in our churches, then why do we expect the unsaved to fear Him??
