Fall before the fallen

Hi, God’s word for me today is in Jeremiah 6:15 which says, “Are they ashamed of their loathsome conduct? No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush. So they will fall among the fallen; they will be brought down when I punish them,’ says the Lord

Wow, the Israelites didn’t even have shame over that? The Lord says that they didn’t have shame and they will fall among the fallen. Because of their sins they will fall among the fallen, that seems harsh. But sins have a consequence, and for them, they ignored God. And like last time I said that they took Him for granted, they do. The Lord said that they would fall among the fallen.

But when the verse talked about the fallen it reminded me of Jesus. I’m not saying that Jesus has fallen or anything like that, what I’m saying is that Jesus came down from Heaven to rescue the fallen. Jesus came down from Heaven and He lived a perfect life after being born of a virgin, and He died on a cross, even though He was (and is) perfect. He died on the cross so we could be saved, but then on the third day He rose. And after being seen by thousands of people, He ascended into Heaven and He is preparing a place for all believers.

Jesus is our deliverance, He died for us, the king of everything died for us! That is amazing!

Are you trusting in Jesus and His sacrifice for us?

Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland.
