|Jeremiah 25:33 |
33 And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the earth even to the other end of the earth. They shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground.2
2 As of 2009, this prophecy of destruction of all the evil people of the world has yet to be fulfilled; it references the entire earth and all nations. The Lord is going to destroy all the evil people of the entire world, leaving the world populated only by those who listen to and obey his voice, walking completely in way he commands them. The Lord has destroyed Jerusalem and Judah, and then reasons with us saying how could we expect to escape the same punishment when we are doing the same thing: not seeking him, not listening to his voice, and not obeying him. Almost everyone, so called Christians included, are walking after the imagination of their own hearts, which is worse than worshiping idols and false gods. Unless we are listening to and following the voice of the Lord within our hearts, the Lord is not our God; our god is ourselves, serving our selfish desires, following our lusts of the flesh, lusts of the eye, and pride of life. So to make the Lord our God, you must go to him. You must wait on him — listen silently, with the humility of a sinner in need of his changing power — grace. Wait, watch, listen, hear, obey... wait, watch, listen, hear, obey..... seek, listen, obey. Keep doing this until Christ appears in your heart as a magnificent star. You must persist in doing this and must endure to the end, when Christ brings salvation.
Come, my people, enter you into your chambers and shut your doors behind you; hide yourself, as it were, for a little while, until the indignation is past. The LORD comes out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity. Isa 26:20-21. He shall execute judgment on the nations. He shall fill all places with the dead bodies. He shall crush the rulers across the earth. Psa 110:6. He shall destroy the sinners out of the land. Isa 13:9
These are prophecies of the Lord finally dealing with the iniquity of the earth, to destroy all those who do not listen to his voice and obey him, after every man hears the Voice of the Lord and turns his back on the Lord. This is like the firstborn of Egypt being destroyed; those who ate the Passover supper and had marked their doors with the blood of the lamb, were spared. The spiritual equivalent is all those of the first birth will be destroyed; those who have truly died to the flesh, by crucifying their selfish fleshly life, will be spared; having their consciences sprinkled with the blood of Jesus to be purged of dead works, living only in obedience to serve Living God.
Before this happens, as Jeremiah said in Jer 25:31, "he will plead with all flesh." Related messages from the Word of the Lord within in 2008:
