Summary: God is the potter and we are the clay. Do we need to go back to the potters house? I asked God a question about are church and the answer that He gave me is recorded in a dream in this sermon.

The Announcement

Jeremiah 18:1-2

1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,

2 Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words.

We live in a day where God really is speaking; God really does have a speaking voice.

From the beginning of time, God has had an announcement that He has been making.

In one way or another, God is trying to give you and me a message.

Are you going to be willing to accept the message that God is speaking or not?

Hebrews 2:1-2

1God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

God spoke in the Old Testament through the Prophets, but has spoken to us through His Son.

Jesus Christ, this morning, is heir of all things, and it was through Him that everything that was created, was created.

In Jeremiah verse 1 says, The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,

The Word was in the beginning with God and all things happened because the Word of God spoke it into existence.

Mathew 8:8-13

8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.

9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.

10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.

12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.

The centurion had an understanding of authority and how true faith in God works.

He knew that if Jesus just spoke the Word then his servant would be healed.

If we, as a people of God, could just grasp the message that was given here, then we would receive God in a deeper way.

Whenever the King speaks, He makes a decree and what He speaks will take place.

Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God, which is found in Romans 10:27.

We have to come to an understanding that their really is healing in the WORD of God.

The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, in this Scripture there is an offer of repentance but again it would be rejected.

Because of the message that Jeremiah was giving their was going to be a greater opposition rise against Him.

Jeremiah 18:2

2 Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words.

God told Jeremiah exactly what to do. Because of the obedience factor, God was going to cause the Prophet to hear God’s Word.

Obedience to the Word of God will always bring about results.

Jeremiah 18:5-7

5 Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying,

6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.

7 At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it;

The Word came to Jeremiah saying, the Word will concern the lesson learned.

What this is saying is, that God who really was in control of Israel, can change the person or the situation that we are in.

The lesson that we must learn is this, God must do it in His own way.

Church, you are the clay and God, this morning, is the potter. Not only did He want to mold Israel, but He still does.

The same thing goes for you and me, He wants you and me to go to the Potter’s house, He wants to change you and He wants to mold your clay if you will let Him do so.

There really is something about the Word this morning.
