Believing for greatness at Bethel “The Best Is Yet To Come”

Jeramiah, Weeping Prophet, God’s People’s Sin & Rebellion

“WHY, HOW COME, HOW LONG, WHEN

Jeremiah 12:1-5 Righteous are You, O LORD, when I plead with You; Yet let me talk with You about Your judgments.

Why does the way of the wicked prosper? Why are those happy who deal so treacherously? You have planted them,

yes, they have taken root; They grow, yes, they bear fruit.

You are near in their mouth but far from their mind. But You, O LORD, know me; you have seen me, and you have tested my heart toward You. Pull them out like sheep for the slaughter, and prepare them for the day of slaughter.

How long will the land mourn, And the herbs

of every field wither? The beasts and birds are consumed,

For the wickedness of those who dwell there, because they said, "He will not see our final end." 5 "If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, Then how can you contend with horses? Pray & say “Running With Horses” 3x

Jeremiah complained, questioned and even accused God

Anybody here feel like sometime God FORGOT about you

Like a Single person wants to get married, rest are getting married You get movie named after you, “Home Alone”

Everybody else getting promoted, happy, doing good..

You say, I love the Lord but have to pray “78 Toyota cranks

While neighbor polishes the new Cadillac, Ain’t Fair God

1 Righteous are You, O LORD, when I plead with You;

Yet let me talk with You about Your judgments.

God, you done good so far…..BUT Lately “Not so good”

Why does the way of the wicked prosper?

Why do evil/mean people enjoy life. Why are they so happy

Why down road, dig MUD HOLE and crowds swarm

2 You have planted them, yes, they have taken root;

They grow, yes, they bear fruit. You are near in their mouth

But far from their mind. ( God, you are blessing them )

3 But You, O LORD, know me; You have seen me, And You have tested my heart toward You. Pull them out like sheep for the slaughter, And prepare them for the day of slaughter.

God, I’m the Man, Just Kill the Rest. Ever prayed that ???

Maybe not, but prayed, “If they disappear, that will be OK”

4 How long will the land mourn, And the herbs of every field wither? The beasts and birds are consumed, For the wickedness of those who dwell there, Because they said,

"He will not see our final end." (Their blessed my expense)

Get living room ready, I’m coming to where you live.
