Am I a God near at hand, says the Lord, And not a God far off? Can anyone hide himself in secret places, So I shall not see Him? Says the Lord; Do I not fill heaven and Earth? says the Lord. Jeremiah 23:23-24 NKJV
Speaking about false prophets who lead His people astray. God says “I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran. I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in My counsel, And had caused My people to hear My words, Then they would have turned them from their evil way and from the evil of their doings”.
God is against false prophets and evil shepherds because they bring harm to His people.
God tells Israel He is not in a far distant place. He is close enough to see everything. No one can hide from God. His presence fills the heavens and the Earth. God wants His people to know He will hold them accountable for their choices and deeds.
God holds the false prophets and evil shepherds accountable for leading people astray. He holds the people to account for believing the lies of false prophets. He holds the people accountable for following false shepherds who abuse their authority.
God is speaking to us today. Jesus is not far away. He did not create the heavens and the Earth and go away somewhere. Jesus did not create us and leave us to ourselves. Jesus is with us. He sees everything. The Spirit of God fills the heavens and the Earth.
Nothing can exist apart from Jesus. Jesus holds all things together. The Holy Spirit is everywhere people gather in Jesus name today!
God will hold the false prophets of our day accountable for the words they speak in His name. Jesus will hold ungodly leaders to account for leading people astray today.
God sent His people into captivity. His purpose was to draw them back into a loving relationship with Him! Some of us have been led into various forms of captivity. Jesus wants to draw us into a deeper loving relationship with Him today!
The things we do in secret are not hidden from Jesus. Jesus does not want us to be taken captive by sin. Jesus wants us to be free to enjoy an abundant life with Him!
How can we live the abundant life? We can call upon the Lord to bring correction into our lives. We can ask Jesus not to leave us to ourselves. We can ask Jesus to expose false teachers. We can call upon Jesus to bring godly leaders into our lives.
Jesus is near enough to hear you when you call out to Him. He sees the good works you do in secret. Call out to the Lord today. Ask Jesus to give you the wisdom to discern the times we live in. Ask Jesus to send forth His word to cleanse hearts like a refiner’s fire!
Ask Jesus to use you to lead His people into the promised land of abundant living!
