Topic: Repentance Is Essential

Text: Jeremiah 14:13-22

Key Verse: “We acknowledge, O LORD, our wickedness, and the iniquity of our fathers: for we have sinned against thee” (Jeremiah 14:20).

A particular tribe in Africa has it in their proverb that if one realises his fault early before the cult of elders, he would not be asked to kneel down for long. The excuse that Jeremiah the prophet tried to give to God in defence of his peoples sins and their attendant deplorable state was not tenable before God. Enough warnings had been given to them about the prevalent false prophets who prophesy lies and the deceits of their heart.

Yet, these people bluntly refused to heed His warning. The judgment of God had taken its full course on both the deceiver and the deceived. Swords and famine had swung into operation in Jerusalem. God in His love now directed the prophet to mourn the more grievous experience of famine and sword that would come on them. This was hinged on the notion that his weeping might probably affect them and bring about a change. The prophet mourned, interceded on behalf of the people and expressed their total abhorrence of the gods of the heathen who could not give them rain.

Jesus Christ gives New Testament believers warnings concerning the deceptive activities of false prophets in these last days if they would be delivered from the great tribulation that will come upon the inhabitants of the world. They must be vigilant, sober and prayerful. The Lord has handed over this job of the watchman to us today. And He expects us to move into every area of the world to preach the gospel of salvation. The dying sinful world needs to be told that if they do not repent and accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour, the judgment of God would crash on them. Do not transfer the responsibility. Take it upon yourself to preach the gospel ceaselessly.

Thought for the day: Gods judgment is inevitable.
