Wanna Get Away? 24-26

Written by Andy Pisciotti | March 11, 2010 | Jeremiah 24 - 26

We are up to chapter 27 now and its easy to feel like you have read the same chapter 27 times. I mean come on people, listen to the man sent by God already! How many more times and in how many more ways can one persuade you to return back to God before you and your whole nation becomes dismantled like rotten figs? Now, we find ourselves at the …

Jeremiah 21-23

Written by Andy Pisciotti | March 10, 2010 | Jeremiah 21 - 23

This whole false prophet thing that Jeremiah is confronted with in these chapters is astonishing to me. Here are a couple questions that come to my mind. Do these guys know they are fooling themselves? Do they know that Jeremiah is right and yet are still speaking lies to the people of Judah? It seems that the false prophets are just telling the people what they want to hear which …

Jeremiah 18-20

Written by Andy Pisciotti | March 9, 2010 |

God has already spoken plenty through Jeremiah, explaining how and where His people have gone astray-  He has also made it plain and clear through which means He plans to judge His people.  The warnings have been straight forward, direct and harsh.  But here, in Chapter 18 we see that through the vision of the potter and the clay- God demonstrates that it is indeed His sovereign right to judge …

Jeremiah 15-17

Written by Joel Schmidgall | March 8, 2010 | Jeremiah 15 - 17

There’s no way to sugar coat the harsh language of Jeremiah 15.  Mathew Henry’s commentary says it well, “We scarcely find anywhere more pathetic expressions of divine wrath against a provoking people than we have here in these verses.”  We see the outcome of the broken covenant.

I’ve had the unfortunate opportunity to walk with some people through the broken covenant of marriage.  Infidelity is a brutal thing. No party …

Jeremiah 11-14

Written by Mark Batterson | March 7, 2010 | Jeremiah 11 - 14

In Jeremiah 11, the Lord tells the Israelites to “obey my voice”, “listen to my voice,” and “incline their ear”. 

I love the simplicity of this.  All we have to do is listen. That’s it.  How do we do that? Well, God speaks in several ways. He speaks through creation. He speaks through Scripture. He speaks in the still, small voice of the Holy Spirit. We’ve got to incline …

Jeremiah 7-10

Written by Heather Zempel | March 6, 2010 | Jeremiah 7 - 10

By Brandt Siegel

These chapters from Jeremiah express such powerful descriptions of God’s anger.  Like Jeremiah (8:18), I find them unnerving.  Why is God so profoundly angry?  Is he too stern?  How do I reconcile the God who died for us with this angry God?

After reading this, I thought of a question Pastor Mark has posed to us.  What makes you cry or pound your fist?  I think …

Jeremiah 4-6

Written by Kari Olney | March 5, 2010 | Jeremiah 4 - 6

I would like to imagine Jeremiah sat at one of our movie theatre at around 3000-2500 years ago, weep as a watchman, he watched the alarmed promised destruction:

In the time of destruction, Judah and Jerusalem are both dispersed. Motorcycles rushed across the bridge, speedboats speeded under, people dived from the cliff, and kayak flipped over to hide. All of sudden, the land is desolated; no one is walking around …

Book Background: Jeremiah

Written by Andy Pisciotti | March 4, 2010 | Jeremiah 1 - 3

The Book of Jeremiah was written roughly between 600 and 550 B.C.E. It was written leading up to and during the Babylonian sacking of Jerusalem and subsequent exile of what remained of Judah. God cries out through Jeremiah for His people to repent, put to death their pagan gods, and return to Him. They don’t listen.

Jeremiah is a prophet and the Book of Jeremiah is a prophetic text. Prophets …

Jeremiah 1-3

Written by Chris Jarrell | March 4, 2010 | Jeremiah 1 - 3

I am so honored to share my thoughts on the first three chapters of Jeremiah.  God used Jeremiah 1 in commissioning me into ministry.  Yes, this is where Jeremiah heard the voice of God speaking to him about his personal calling. God chose to use this in my life to speak to me about my personal calling to step out and be used by him.  Every time I read chapter …
