With the voice of God in the lips of the remnant people

With the voice of God in the lips of the remnant people
Says the apostle Paul in his second letter to Timothy, and when you are defining the intimate relationship that should exist between the man of God and the word of God, that "all scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness "(2 Timothy 3:16).
This passage is linked to two others. (Romans 15:4), which says: "For whatsoever things were written before were written for our instruction, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the scriptures might have hope."And (2 Peter 1:20) is added: "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. "
There are seven short principles enclosed in these three verses. I'm talking about the base line (2 Timothy 3:16) and two parallel, (Romans 15:4), (2 Peter 1:20).
1) says that all Scripture is inspired by God. This destroys some still prevailing doctrine that there is an Old Testament speaks of merely historical and literal information that you should read for a New Testament and a little more spiritual. He says that all scripture. And in that moment, the "whole" writing was the Old Testament. The new one was writing.
2) says that all Scripture is useful for teaching. This word comes from the Latin INSIGNARE, and means to point, instruct, give warning or example, indicate, show signs, show something. All scripture.
3) for reproof, it is to discover the hidden and contradictory; make the argument against it does; challenge something that contains a defect. All scripture. Also the books ... poetic.
4) TO CORRECT, AMEND IT IS WRONG, admonish, TEMPLAR, MODERATE. All Scripture is useful for that. Even the ancient genealogies incomprehensible.
5) for instruction in righteousness, that is how to point the possession of vital elements to exercise justice in this case, divine. All scripture.
6) says that all Scripture is inspired by God. The inspired word, here, is the word, and means "divine breath".This is the most important statement of writing about herself, and means that it is the result of the creative Spirit of God. As divine expression in the strict sense, is that it is called "The Word of God." See that man is the image and likeness of God because He blew "Breath of Life". The "divine breath" of creative inspiration and revelation. The incredulous man lives his life, dies and goes to hell without knowing it or without having believed.
All Scripture is God's word. Not containing it, IS. Toda. From Genesis to Revelation. You do not understand! No you have to understand, just read, think and to do. That's where you begin to understand!
7) aims WORD THAT EVERYTHING aimed at a target, the hope, that in this sense has to do with the calm assurance of salvation, something that can not seem to be as important, but that in light of the notorious unbelief outside and inside of the church, grows bigger and takes unexpected value. All scripture.
I will, on this issue, that some passages from the book of Jeremiah, carrying a red flag on the remnant of Jesus Christ. Anyone with a voice of God is not to show off for sustraerle nor power to whoever has it. Not to reap personal followers or disciples, or to cement critical people. Anyone with a voice from God. At this time, it will be to alert people to say: Watch out, what has already been written, as is what the Bible itself says, is not to stay in a historical narrative almost unnecessary, but to be read with the mind set in today.
Thus, the word will, from Genesis to Revelation, useful for: teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.Come from a base: Jeremiah, here you are. And all God tell him, it is telling you. That, of course, if you, before, you said "Lord, here I am." But not talking to you, he is proud to be a member of a particular denominational congregation, or follower of a particular shepherd if you have a heart right before God and white garments of holiness.
(Jer. 1:10) "See, I have set you this day over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant."
THREE GIVE DETAILS very specific in this verse:1) No believer has been placed under slavery of any ruler of any nation on earth, nor, on the spiritual plane, it will be of no kingdom, (both satanic as some of the other animal, vegetable. From here derive the slavery to drugs, alcohol) tells us that we are above all that.
2) He says he is set to start, destroy, destroy and overthrow. Okay, but do all this with what? What you need to start, destroy, destroy and tear down? The world? No. The word is not for the world, is for the church. What you need to tear down and everything else, is the structure, system, both Christian traditions that has fragmented the body of Christ and to the religious status in the so-called "Christian church" of his day.
3) He adds, in the end, you must build and to plant. Is he talking about building new temples and planting, which is rooted, new names born of a dissatisfaction that causes divisions and then to coexist with existing ones? Christ never did that.Jesus built mature lives from the sword of the word and gospel and planted a single doctrine "the doctrine of Jesus" that almost nobody remembers today and almost not preached Jesus as they did: "The kingdom of heaven is at hand: repent ". Today evangelistic systems have produced varied from Evangelism Explosion (That is a very well thought out, really), the witness (who is also a beautiful and necessary), the system of the four truths (which is very witty and engaging) or the new birth, (which is a story of the Lord in the Gospel of John), but we have ignored both the gospel Christ preached, which is the doctrine received from the Father and gave it to the Apostles such as security of that who can convert souls is the Holy Spirit, with conviction and power, not intelligence or strategy men.
In this same book (Jer.18: 7), God says: "The instant I speak concerning a nation and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, tear down and destroy." (Brothers, pray that the eyes of the shepherds are open! Right, pray, but that's not what it says here. Pray that our congregation allow so gay play that music played on other! Start . want no philosophical or poetic reflections, as well as intellectuals, we praise God's word exalt his name. Toppling. Enough disguised slavery humanistic spiritual attachment. Destroy. In the name of Jesus. Without rancor, without hatred, without anger without resentment, without bitterness, but firmly.)
(Jeremiah 2:5) "Thus saith the Lord, What iniquity have your fathers found in me, that is far from me, and have walked after vanity, and are become vain?"
Watch as he tells (Isaiah 5:4) "What else could I do to my vineyard, that I have not done with it? How, I looked that it should bring forth grapes, it yield wild grapes? "(Do you know what a wild grape? A that looks legitimate, but that is sour and is useless). A (Micah 6:3), however, says something very similar: "My people, what have I done, or what have I wearied you? Answer against me. " (This sounds like a father who gives his son all his life up everything you have and that, when he gets old, he sees that the child is going abroad and leaving forgets left to their fate. Almost treason. What have I done, my son?) And finally, we have the same way this is reflected, as history, (2 Kings 17:15) "And they rejected his statutes, and his covenant that he made with their fathers, and testimony that he had prewritten to them, and they followed vanity, and went after the nations that were round about them, concerning whom the LORD commanded them that they should not do like them. "Are you a Christian who sings folk songs of their country, what's wrong? Have a nationality and that is his music. Calm down! Do not go to hell for that!, At least not yet, but will need to review carefully the connotations of that music. It is wise to do so.Nor is it a matter of being sectarian, closed, polled and legalistic. Why should you know, for example, and to have as much as information to help you, that in other countries most of the folk songs they sing praises to the Salamanca Pacha-mama, the PAYE and many others with witchcraft and pacts native quackery. I'm not saying you need to release in primary school because you sang "Zamba, merengue, ballads, reggaeton, cumbias, etc..", What I'm saying is that this case ruled that wearing body called, actually born in Mexico, but the Spirit who dwells in you a citizen of the kingdom of God which has placed you on this earth, just as that divine ambassador nation.
(Jer.2: 8) "The priests said not, Where is the LORD? And those with the law knew me not: the pastors also transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by Baal, and walked after things that do not profit. "
What do you mean by the rebellion of the shepherds? First, remember that the word pastor does not mean a title, a position or an ecclesiastical office, but a function. That is not limited to one of the five ministries (Ephesians 4), but all, as shepherd is to protect, guide, feed and care, and that you can do both the pastor and the apostle, prophet, evangelist or the teacher. Rebellion, then, is to dedicate ourselves to do what we want and ignore what God commanded us to do. It's simple when God commands him to do things that make being nice, charismatic and friendly, but it's not the same when he has to go where you wake reactions, oppositions and even war. Will you pay the price?
In Chapter 10, the same expression would seem to be more clear. At 10:21 says: "For the pastors are become brutish, (make conceited to fall into pride, pride in place) and have not sought the LORD: therefore were not successful (This is being too, today) and all their flocks shall be scattered "(Unfortunately, this is also happening. not you have an idea of ​​how many people do not know where to congregate because it has no spiritual stability.) in Chapter 23 also touched the issue and referred also to the Prophets of Baal, which today would be equivalent to as much people walking by congregations, in favor of a tremendous lack of judgment, with spirits of divination playing the prophets.

In (Jer.23 :1-4) says: "Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! Saith the Lord, 2 Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people: Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not kept. Behold, I will punish the evil of your doings, saith the Lord. 3 And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and bring them back to their homes, and will grow and multiply. 4 And I will set shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the Lord. "And (Jer.23: 13) "in the prophets of Samaria I have seen folly; prophesied in Baal, and caused my people Israel to err." I know from experience that there is nothing that causes more bitterness and helplessness that criticism with some reason for people doing the same thing we do. When people say that Christians are mercenaries, sold, hurts me. I can not help but recognize that there are people like that in the profession of theology, but it hurts because it puts us all in the same bag. I think the same is happening, at this time, with the pastoral ministry. My prayer is that God will bless and forces so many faithful servants, raised by the Lord according to his heart for the ministry of Jesus, suffering and sacrifice for his sheep, and simultaneously put in place by those who personal interests eventually disperse or destroy the flock of Jesus spiritually. The Bible calls them "employees" and that's not ever preach.
(Jer 2:13) "For two evils my people have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns that can hold no water."
The tanks were a deposit made on the ground, pear-shaped, to collect and conserve rainwater. Used to cover her mouth with a rock. Every house had one and became large for public use. Under immense temple was built for the needs of the service. Given the ability of Israel to build using cement to not allow water to seep, allowed them to live in places where there were no natural sources. That made and instead of waiting for the blessing of rain, the most trusted people in their ability to build tanks depositing in them the most confidence. The same thing happens today with much of the church, instead of crying and trust the power of God, has chosen to deliver the gospel to the wisdom of the human sciences: medicine, sociology, philosophy, psychology.
The (Psalm 36:9) speaks of the source of living water is God, when he says: "For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light." Later in (Jeremiah 17:13), says: "O LORD, the hope of Israel! All they let you be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of living waters. " I recordares something: anyone can make something that did not have, and no one can deviate from something which was never. Therefore, this is not for unbelievers who never knew God, but for those who having known, decided to live out their will even continue in the church.
Water has undoubted value in the gospel. Take the water of God in the Old Testament called "source of life", is what a Christian should do. Pretender dig cisterns for ourselves, is to step out of their dependency but also of their coverage. In the New Testament, the figure of the Christ focuses on water, as shown in (John 4:14) "But whoever drinks the water I shall give him shall never thirst but the water that I shall give be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. " Do you understand now what it means to dig cisterns for ourselves? Not having water springing up into everlasting life, nothing less.
(Jer.2: 19) "Your wickedness will correct you, and your backslidings will rebuke; (This clarifies that it is not God who punishes or conviction, are their wickedness and rebellion, if any) know therefore and see that it bad and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the Lord thy God, and that my fear in you, says the Lord, the Lord of hosts. "
In (Isaiah 3:9) there is a reference to sin in the church. A hit me as this text begins: "The show of their countenance doth witness against them ..." Do you know it? To me this has happened to see the face of someone who asks me for spiritual help and perceive sin in that person. Look as follows: "For their sin as Sodom, they hide it not ..." Do you know that this is true? We do not discern before because you look more what it should be or what appears to be, not what it is. "Woe unto their soul! Because piled bad for himself. "But it is much clearer (Hosea 5:5), look: "The pride of Israel testifies to his face; (God and knew he would get pride in their church) Israel and Ephraim fall in their iniquity, and Judah stumble also with them. " One thing is clear. It says in Psalm 36. The wicked sins because he does not fear the Lord. But what about the people of God, for what sins? By the same. But how can that be? That how it can be ... Would you say something you did not receive? when I say that there are people who walk into a temple, which basically does not believe in anything that they say, but they are there for other reasons, or at best, because they are useful or important.
(Jer.2: 21, 22) "I planted you a choice vine, wholly a right seed, how then, thou turned into the degenerate strange vine? 22 Although you wash yourself with lye, and use much soap, the stain of your iniquity is still before me, saith the Lord. "
But then Judah, and a large part of the church now became strange. In (Exodus 15:17), in her song, Moses speaks of the people, and says: "Thou shalt bring them and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, in the place of your dwelling, which thou hast made, O Lord, the sanctuary which thy hands, O Lord, have claimed ". Which shows that this plant is a matter for the people of God, in all times, and not merely historical.
The only way ordained by God to cleanse sin is through the blood of Jesus dare repentance. A congregation may have: good music, great temple, thousands of members, offering abundant, schools, social welfare, healing, deliverance, good economic, social and intellectual and great prestige in society, but if not preached and practiced the doctrine of Jesus Christ, and choose to rely on humanistic factors such as money, politics, philosophy or science, is strange vine branch and nothing but genuine repentance, may remove a destination is lost.
In that sense we read in the (Jer.4: 14) "wash thine heart from wickedness, O Jerusalem, (How many know who is talking about the church?) For you to be saved, (Was not that all churches, with serlos just because of having a number and a name to live on the National Register of worship, were saved? Beware synthesized doctrines, ending with universal voluntarist, which obviously is not Christianity) How long shall in midst thoughts of iniquity. "Shake brother! Do not imagine, or Reason, or think, or use the logic of the soul or intellect to understand what comes from the Spirit. Speaks to you, Church!
(Jer.2: 29) "Why plead with me? All ye trespassed against me, saith the Lord. "Let's look at something else to finish giving theologians bent on conviction to historical and geographical literalness of the word. What is stubborn? Someone who, despite realizing that something is not as I thought it was, and it is like they are saying is, foolishness, decides to stay in his. What is prevaricate? Prevaricate is, says the Bible, more damning than sinning. Because many are sinning in ignorance, because nobody preached the truth, because they do not know. But the transgressor is someone who, knowing what to do, for whatever reason, decided not to. Now, how could persist prevaricate with God or against Him, someone unbelieving world that does not know him?(Jer.5 1,2), says: "Run through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and inquire, seek in their seats to see if they find a man, if there is one that does justice, who seeks truth; And I 2 forgive but say Lord liveth, swear falsely. "
You know what I remember? Have reputation of being alive, but you are dead. And in the (Jer.6: 13,14) is stronger still: "13 For from the least of them unto the greatest (which is to say, from the porter, the usher, which cleanses the temple after worship, to the Chief Minister) each is given to covetousness (which is saved for possessing, as suggested by the world, rather than give to get, says God, be it money, be appropriated, are honors, are entertainments) and from the prophets and priests (Going through all the biblical ministries: apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers) are all deceivers ". Eye'm not talking about the whole church, I'm talking about those whom he calls a strange vine, Christ called Generation of Vipers and Paul, much more direct and with a little more meat to the Lord, called "false brethren ")" 14 and healed the wound of my people (ie: the fraction of it is true, but it needs) slightly, saying, Peace, peace, when there is no peace ". (Here is a listing for the gospel of God "Dietary" low-calorie, full of talk, gestures a lot, laugh a lot, think a lot, think a lot, cries a lot and even yells a lot but, anointed word, says nothing.
On the one hand, says that we should return to the old paths, while the other says that we should not walk in the paths traveled. It would be contradictory, indeed, that, if we take a literal way. But it is for a very simple reason: the old paths, are those of the early church, the Book of Acts, which lived by faith and not knowing what would happen the next minute. It is mostly seen that today, in which everything is predictable, it is sometimes overly tidy, which at times becomes humanly controlled, which no one ever comes out "order of worship" no one knows who invented it, which finished worshiping the assembled structure, above the Creator of life, which focuses your highest expectations in their temples or their names in the presence of the living God in them. This is what is called here "beaten path", preset, predictable routine. Old Paths, for example, is the church of the family homes, open space, the underground church, which does not negotiate with godless society privileges or perks nor official with the religious structure, whether official as their own.
That is why in (Jer.17: 10), God says: "I the LORD search the mind, I try the heart, even to give every man according to his heart, as the fruit of his doings." But where is this more clearly expresses the thought of God and what we see as everyday reality, is in (Hosea 8:4) "They (my people are saying my church) set up kings, (read: governments, leaders ) but not by me made princes (They are leaders because Jesus only called servers) but I did not know, of their silver and their gold This is your economic potential, church) made them idols, (Te remember that idol is anything that takes a first replacing God. Money, power, politics, philosophy, intellectualism, scientism, social action, religious status) to be themselves destroyed. "
(Jer.2: 36) "What discurres much to change thy way? (I pass the basic Spanish: Why all trying to justify that line, with understated elegance, which should be handled with more elements of the world that faith?) Also will be ashamed of Egypt, as thou wast ashamed of Assyria. " (When the church starts Rema the purpose and will of God and choose to "do it", the human, intellectual, mystical super, the scientific, the world's ridicule and shame)
(V-37) "also from there (of shame, ridicule and derision of the world) will come out with your hands above your head (There are two main reasons why you or I put hands on the head: 1) We prisoners and as a sign of unconditional surrender and abandonment of the struggle walked with his hands behind our necks, 2) contemplate the result of our proud and carnal madness and we can only put one hand on each temple, on each side of our head and say: What did I do? What did I do?) For the LORD rejected those in whom you trusted, (Who do you trust? Under governments? Under politicians? Under joints? Under associations? Under charismatic leaders who encourage the glorification of man? In professional anything as better Christians fabricate a university? Under denominations? says God and discarded, and you with them.) And not prosper by them. "
Is it worthwhile to add anything else? Is it worthwhile to remember what kind of food is going to your heart pure, fresh water, green grass, fresh bread? or months saved What nutritious food, green grass or dry leaves? You choose.
