“…Yet a small number that escape the sword shall return out of the land of Egypt into the land of Judah, and all the remnant of Judah, that are gone into the land of Egypt to sojourn there, shall know whose words shall stand, Mine, or theirs. And this shall be a sign unto you, saith the LORD, that I will punish you in this place, that ye may know that My words shall surely stand against you for evil…” Jeremiah 44:28-29 (KJB)
Jeremiah had told these people about God’s word to stay in the land of Judah to live, to work, and to worship God there. They would not hear Jeremiah; thus, they would not listen to, neither hear God. They go down to Egypt despite God’s word to them.
Now they receive word that they will be punished again by Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon. They blamed God for their situation, yet it was their unbelief, their wayward way of life in Judah committing hypocritical worship, feigned worship to the God of Heaven while devoting themselves to idols; worship of foreign gods which were no god at all. The truth had become relative to them.
In 2019 there are far too many professing Christians who believe that there is no absolute truth; except the statement that “There is no absolute truth”. So that nullifies that statement.
Hear the word of the LORD. The word of the LORD will stand. Every word He has spoken will come to pass just as He has said.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God; God who became flesh and dwelt among us (John 1:1, 14). Jesus came to us to die on the cross for our sins. He was buried to take our sin, our shame, our guilt, and condemnation away. He was raised up from the grave and seen of over 500 witness (1 Corinthians 15:1-8).
Whose word will stand? Yours or Gods? I can rest assured that God’s word will stand, and yours will be left in the dust of foolish thought.
