The Book of Jeremiah
In the last chapter, over the course of 40 verses, Father warned these false preachers of the punishment that they’d receive if they didn’t stop feeding His flock lies and distortions of His Word. And that was written many, many centuries ago and STILL today, the famous rapture theory, the fly-away and any-moment doctrines, are front and foremost within the teachings of established religion.
Millions and millions of souls/people believe these lies wholeheartedly and it’s transferred from one generation to the next, WITHOUT many NOT even going to a church to hear or find out about it. It’s just a part of the religious fabric of this nation.
I personally believe that it’s impossible to change the minds of everybody that believes in these theories and doctrines but if we keep pushing Father’s truth ahead, if we’re as relentless as these false/fake preachers, the Holy Spirit may see a soul that He can touch and take it from Satan’s camp.
Those of us that teach the truth should take no credit at all, if and when, a soul does, finally, see that these traditions are lies. It’s the Holy Spirit that does the changing of heart and opens the eyes and ears of the spiritually deaf and blind.
So, what’s going on in this chapter? Jeremiah is outside the Temple in Jerusalem and Father has presented him with two baskets of figs, so let’s get into it and find out what’s happening and what lessons Father wants us to learn from it.
Jeremiah 24:1 The Lord shewed me, and, behold, two baskets of figs were set before the temple of the Lord, after that Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon had carried away captive Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah, and the princes of Judah, with the carpenters and smiths, from Jerusalem, and had brought them to Babylon.
The captivity is ongoing, most of the people of Judah have been taken from Jerusalem to Babylon, and those that are left are called the REMNANT by our Father and as we discovered in the last few chapters, this REMNANT is quite important to our Father.
These are souls that justified themselves in the first heaven/earth age, during the time that Satan and his followers tried to take control of the Mercy Seat and thus all of heaven.
The VERY ELECT are the 7000 that stood with the Father during that war and they are the counterpart to the 7000 fallen angels that stood with Satan in his attempted coup.
✡ Romans 11:3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.
Verses 3 and 4 are taken from the Old Testament and were spoken by the prophet Elijah.
Verse 4 is Father’s response…
✡ Romans 11:4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal. KJV
This word, men, does not refer to human beings. The word in the Greek is “Anthropos” and it means “man-faced”, as angels look just like us.
These 7000 very Elect will also be here on earth during the five-month tribulation of Satan/Antichrist. Again, the counterpart to the 7000 angels that will be cast to earth with him…
✡ Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. KJV
There will also be those of His Election that will be here during these end times and they will be used by our Father to put forth His truth to counteract the lies of established religion. They will have the seal of God in their minds and know that the coming of the FIRST messiah is a fake, that he is Satan/Antichrist, and they will not be deceived.
✡ Revelation 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. KJV
Don’t misread that, because it’s presented to us as a negative…have not. Satan and his angels can screw around with everybody else EXCEPT those that have His seal in their mind.
ALL of His Election have been chosen in the world that was….
✡ Ephesians 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
✡ Ephesians 1:5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, KJV
He has the right to interfere in their lives without being accused of just that, should a soul fail to make the grade on Judgment Day.
Alright, enough said about the Election and the remnant. Verse 2.
Jeremiah 24:2 One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are first ripe: and the other basket had very naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad.
Father is not talking about fruit or figs here, He’s talking about people. Remember that I said earlier that He uses agriculture to explain things to us? Here is one of those times.
What’s being said is that one basket contains GOOD people while the other basket contains BAD people.
Jeremiah 24:3 Then said the Lord unto me, What seest thou, Jeremiah? And I said, Figs; the good figs, very good; and the evil, very evil, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil.
Jeremiah sees only the physical figs in front of him. Some can be eaten and some cannot.
Jeremiah 24:4 Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
Jeremiah 24:5 Thus saith the Lord, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for their good.
Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah. There you have it from Him...the good figs represent His children of Judah and Jerusalem that have been taken away captive to Babylon.
He has sent them captive to Babylon FOR THEIR OWN GOOD. While there, they will not be whipped or beaten or made to move boulders and construct pyramids. They will be treated fairly well because Father has told them to build houses and raise families while they’re there.
They will also be allowed to worship our Father as they did back in Jerusalem. There will be no religious persecution. We’ll read more about that situation when we get to chapter 29 of this book.
Jeremiah 24:6 For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up.
This began in May of 1948 and will be partially fulfilled up to the coming of our Lord, but it will be during the eternity that it will be fulfilled completely. As I mentioned before, we will all have our own national land upon which to live during the Eternity.
Jeremiah 24:7 And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the Lord: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart.
This has happened to a few people in this life, but they are few in number. How comforting it will be to know that we will have no human hang-ups after this is all over and we’ll be free from the influence of Satan and we can kick back and love our Father freely, with all our hearts.
Jeremiah 24:8 And as the evil figs, which cannot be eaten, they are so evil; surely thus saith the Lord, So will I give Zedekiah the king of Judah, and his princes, and the residue of Jerusalem, that remain in this land, and them that dwell in the land of Egypt:
Here are the “bad figs” that rejected Him in this life.
Zedekiah, the last king of Judah, was a weak and indecisive king and rather than follow our Father, he took up with Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, and became his “puppet king”.
When he finally revolted, he tried to escape, was caught, forced to watch while his sons were executed, then had his eyes gouged out, and dragged off to Babylon, where he subsequently died.
Jeremiah 24:9 And I will deliver them to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth for their hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places whither I shall drive them.
The “good figs” were taken to Babylon for their good, for good, while the “bad figs” were taken to the same place for their hurt.
They ALL revolted and disobeyed Father, but the kings and princes were supposed to be the leaders of the people and all they did was lead them into corruption which is exactly what these false preachers, these little antichrists, do to people of today, with their rapture and fly-away doctrines.
Jeremiah 24:10 And I will send the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, among them, till they be consumed from off the land that I gave unto them and to their fathers. KJV
These preachers will be judged for EACH AND EVERY SOUL that they took to deception but bear in mind that some of these souls are protected by our Father and ALLOWED to believe the deception, only to receive the truth during the Millennium.
And then there are the souls that just flatly rejected Christ and put their own religion together. Do we, as a Christian nation, worship a big-bellied little fat guy called Buddha? Or do we wait for the Messiah to come when He clearly died on the cross already?
As a nation, do we worship sticks and stones that cannot stand or speak on their own?
NO, this is basically a God-fearing/loving nation and we should thank Him for the opportunity to be able to live here.
But there is a growing segment within Congress and among the people at large, the Millennials and the Gen Zers that seem to simply hate everything that is good or those whose actions produce good. They openly vilify the righteous with their message of hate.
Every candidate for president wants socialism to rule this country. They know, just like the rest of us, that socialism has ruined many other countries, Venezuela comes to mind, but they think that the inept leaders are responsible for that and that they will do better once they are in control.
Is Father going to let communism and socialism run this country FOR OUR GOOD as He did to Judah and Jerusalem?
History is repeating itself, right before our very eyes, and it appears that it just might be the case.
