Trusting in Lying Words
Jeremiah 7:1The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord (Yᵊhōvâ), saying,
Jeremiah 7:2 “Stand in the gate of the Lord’s (Yᵊhōvâ) house, and proclaim there this word, and say, ‘Hear the word of the Lord (Yᵊhōvâ), all you of Judah who enter in at these gates to worship the (Lord!)’ ”
Jeremiah 7:3 Thus says the Lord of hosts (Yᵊhōvâ ṣāḇā’ ), the God (‘ĕlōhîm) of Israel: “Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place.
- Why does it matter they dwell in this place?
Israel is the center of the world
The Temple is the center of Israel
The Holy of Holies is the center of the temple
Jesus sits on the mercy seat of the Ark of the Covenant in the Holy of Holies, in the center of the temple, in the center of Israel, in the center of the world.
Jeremiah 7:4 Do not trust in these lying words, saying, ‘The temple of the Lord (Yᵊhōvâ), the temple of the Lord (Yᵊhōvâ), the temple of the Lord (Yᵊhōvâ) are these.’
- An unholy trinity: Instead of “holy, holy, holy”, the “temple of the Lord” is repeated three times.
Jeremiah 7:5 “For if you thoroughly amend your ways and your doings, if you thoroughly execute judgment (justice) between a man and his neighbor,
Jeremiah 7:6 if you do not oppress the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place, or walk after other gods to your hurt,
Jeremiah 7:7 then I will cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers forever and ever.
Jeremiah 7:8 “Behold, you trust in lying words that cannot profit.

Jeremiah 7:10 and then come and stand before Me in this house which is called by My name, and say, ‘We are delivered to do all these abominations’?
- Same concept today. Will you lie, cheat, steal, etc. then come before God and declare “We are delivered by Grace to do all these abominations?”
Jeremiah 7:11 Has this house, which is called by My name, become a den of thieves in your eyes? Behold, I, even I, have seen it,” says the Lord (Yᵊhōvâ).

Jeremiah 7:13 And now, because you have done all these works,” says the Lord (Yᵊhōvâ), “and I spoke to you, rising up early and speaking, but you did not hear, and I called you, but you did not answer,
Jeremiah 7:14 therefore I will do to the house which is called by My name, in which you trust, and to this place which I gave to you and your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh.
Jeremiah 7:15 And I will cast you out of My sight, as I have cast out all your brethren—the whole posterity of Ephraim.

Jeremiah 7:18 The children gather wood, the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven; and they pour out drink offerings to other gods, that they may provoke Me to anger.
Jeremiah 7:19 Do they provoke Me to anger?” says the Lord (Yᵊhōvâ). “Do they not provoke themselves, to the shame of their own faces?”
Jeremiah 7:20 Therefore thus says the Lord God (‘ăḏōnāy Yᵊhōvâ) : “Behold, My anger and My fury will be poured out on this place—on man and on beast, on the trees of the field and on the fruit of the ground. And it will burn and not be quenched.”
Jeremiah 7:21 Thus says the Lord of hosts (Yᵊhōvâ ṣāḇā’), the God (‘ĕlōhîm) of Israel: “Add your burnt offerings to your sacrifices and eat meat.
Jeremiah 7:22 For I did not speak to your fathers, or command them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices.
Jeremiah 7:23 But this is what I commanded them, saying, ‘Obey My voice, and I will be your God (‘ĕlōhîm), and you shall be My people. And walk in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well with you.’
Jeremiah 7:24 Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but followed (walked in) the counsels and the dictates (stubbornness or imagination) of their evil hearts, and went (Lit. they were) backward and not forward.
Jeremiah 7:25 Since the day that your fathers came out of the land of Egypt until this day, I have even sent to you all My servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending them.

Judgment on Obscene Religion
Jeremiah 7:28 “So you shall say to them, ‘This is a nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God (Yᵊhōvâ ‘ĕlōhîm) nor receive correction. Truth has perished and has been cut off from their mouth.
Jeremiah 7:29 Cut off your hair and cast it away, and take up a lamentation on the desolate heights; for the Lord (Yᵊhōvâ) has rejected and forsaken the generation of His wrath.’
Jeremiah 7:30 For the children of Judah have done evil in My sight,” says the Lord (Yᵊhōvâ). “They have set their abominations in the house which is called by My name, to pollute (defile) it.
Jeremiah 7:31 And they have built the high places of Tophet, which is in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire, which I did not command, nor did it come into My heart.
- They sacrificed their sons and daughters – no difference than abortion. Everyone knows it is murder but no one wants to admit it. It is used for convenience, medical experimentation, and political money. The internet won’t allow pictures to be posted because pictures are “offensive”. A strange definition for murder calling this “Pro-Choice?”
- The God of heaven will judge the women sparingly but those who built and endorsed the abortion factory have the greatest sin and will also be judged accordingly.
Call it anything you like but it is murder. It is called killing your future.
