Dueling Banjos of Sorts…

There was a time in history (much like today) when phophets only had something good to say.  That is to say, “only good” until Prophet Jeremiah came along.  It was one lone prophet warning of impending disaster if the nation did not turn back to God pitted against a bunch of prophets all foretelling peace and prosperity.  God was ready to puke or at least cause everyone else believing in the false prophets to puke.  He spoke again to Jeremiah.
 
 “Listen, Hananiah! The LORD has not sent you, yet you have persuaded this nation to trust in lies. Therefore, this is what the LORD says: ‘I am about to remove you from the face of the earth. This very year you are going to die, because you have preached rebellion against the LORD.’ ”  In the seventh month of that same year, Hananiah the prophet died.
 
It’s not easy speaking truth.  Much of Jeremiah’s life was spent speaking God’s Word under a direct threat to his life.  How easily are our actions and words impacted by the desire to please others?  There is but one truth and our perceptions do not influence it.

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
