Jeremiah 35:12-17

Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Go and tell the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, Will ye not receive instruction to hearken to my words? saith the LORD. The words of Jonadab the son of Rechab, that he commanded his sons not to drink wine, are performed; for unto this day they drink none, but obey their father’s commandment: notwithstanding I have spoken unto you, rising early and speaking; but ye hearkened not unto me. I have sent also unto you all my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, saying, Return ye now every man from his evil way, and amend your doings, and go not after other gods to serve them, and ye shall dwell in the land which I have given to you and to your fathers: but ye have not inclined your ear, nor hearkened unto me. Because the sons of Jonadab the son of Rechab have performed the commandment of their father, which he commanded them; but this people hath not hearkened unto me: Therefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring upon Judah and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem all the evil that I have pronounced against them: because I have spoken unto them, but they have not heard; and I have called unto them, but they have not answered.

Entonces vino palabra del SEÑOR a Jeremías, diciendo:  Así dice el SEÑOR de los ejércitos, el Dios de Israel: “Ve y di a los hombres de Judá y a los habitantes de Jerusalén: `¿No aprenderéis a escuchar mis palabras?’–declara el SEÑOR.  `Las palabras de Jonadab, hijo de Recab, que mandó a sus hijos de no beber vino, son guardadas. Por eso no beben vino hasta hoy, porque han obedecido el mandato de su padre. Pero yo os he hablado repetidas veces, con todo no me habéis escuchado.  `También os he enviado a todos mis siervos los profetas, enviándolos repetidas veces, a deciros: “Volveos ahora cada uno de vuestro mal camino, enmendad vuestras obras y no vayáis tras otros dioses para adorarlos, y habitaréis en la tierra que os he dado, a vosotros y a vuestros padres; pero no inclinasteis vuestro oído, ni me escuchasteis.  “Ciertamente los hijos de Jonadab, hijo de Recab, han guardado el mandato que su padre les ordenó, pero este pueblo no me ha escuchado.’ Por tanto así dice el SEÑOR, Dios de los ejércitos, el Dios de Israel: “He aquí, traigo sobre Judá y sobre todos los habitantes de Jerusalén toda la calamidad que he pronunciado contra ellos, porque les hablé, pero no escucharon, y los llamé, pero no respondieron.

God is a God of mercy and love, but He is also perfect.

God cannot allow evil to persist. Just like the people of Judah who did not listen to God, many humans are also not listening to God. We wonder why all the problems in the world….it is because we have not listened to God. It is because we have taken Him out of our everyday life.

Lets all come back to God. His ways are far above our ways.

There is no situation in our lives that God cannot heal and mend. The key is: we must allow Him in. In some cases, the fixing needs to hurt to achieve the proper care.

God does care….He cares about each one of us.

I will put it in His hands….Will you?
