Scripture: Jeremiah 30
"We proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ."
Colossians 1:28 (NIV84)
18"Thus says the Lord: Behold, I will restore the fortunes of the tents of Jacob and have compassion on his dwellings; the city shall be rebuilt on its mound, and the palace shall stand where it used to be. 19Out of them shall come songs of thanksgiving, and the voices of those who celebrate. I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will make them honored, and they shall not be small. 20Their children shall be as they were of old, and their congregation shall be established before me, and I will punish all who oppress them. 21Their prince shall be one of themselves; their ruler shall come out from their midst; I will make him draw near, and he shall approach me, for who would dare of himself to approach me? declares the Lord. 22And you shall be my people, and I will be your God." 23Behold the storm of the Lord! Wrath has gone forth, a whirling tempest; it will burst upon the head of the wicked. 24The fierce anger of the Lord will not turn back until he has executed and accomplished the intentions of his mind. In the latter days you will understand this.
Jeremiah 30:18–24 (ESV)
In chapter 30 the Lord promised to do three things:
1. Restore their PROSPERITY.
2. Restore JUSTICE.
11For I am with you to save you, declares the Lord; I will make a full end of all the nations among whom I scattered you, but of you I will not make a full end. I will discipline you in just measure, and I will by no means leave you unpunished.
Jeremiah 30:11 (ESV)
3. Restore their SPIRITUAL LIFE.
12"For thus says the Lord: Your hurt is incurable, and your wound is grievous. 13There is none to uphold your cause, no medicine for your wound, no healing for you. 14All your lovers have forgotten you; they care nothing for you; for I have dealt you the blow of an enemy, the punishment of a merciless foe, because your guilt is great, because your sins are flagrant.
Jeremiah 30:12–14 (ESV)
God's plan is to RESTORE everything that was lost in the GARDEN of EDEN, which is more than anyone can imagine!
9That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him."
1 Corinthians 2:9 (NLT)
All the healings, blessings, and miracles we see in this age are simply a PREVIEW of what all His people will enjoy when God RESTORES everything in the KINGDOM.
