See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.
 
Continuing in the context of the previous post, the title statement is Jeremiah 1:10, which defines the chapter centered on the ideas we know are contained in the writer’s name. As we know, Jeremiah means Jehovah will rise, and with His rising will raise us. We see this mission synopsized in verse 10 above, which as we saw in the prior post begins with removing those who have led his people away from Him and into idolatry and desolation. In Judges 6 we saw these idol’s ideas and ways described as the altar of Baal and the men who led and lead therein as groves (of trees) by it. These men are those “rooted out” by the LORD’s rising, and their altars are pulled down and destroyed by the word of His wrath. His foundation is again laid by the same word and built precept upon precept, line upon line. By His Spirit, we are planted and become the new crop, trees of life again planted by rivers of His living water.
 
Jeremiah 1
4 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
5 Before I formed you in the belly I knew you; and before you came forth out of the womb I sanctified you, and I ordained you a prophet unto the nations.
6 Then said I, Ah, LORD God! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child.
7 But the LORD said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for you shall go to all that I shall send you, and whatsoever I command you you shall speak.
8 Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with you to deliver you, says the LORD.
9 Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in your mouth.
10 See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.
11 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what sees you? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree [the first trees to shoot forth life after winter – as in the LORD’s words in Matthew 24:32 and seeing the trees shoot forth life; in the context of life returning to the carcass he spoke of in verse 28].
12 Then said the LORD unto me, You have well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.
After Jeremiah has “well seen” the signs and knows the season’s change is near, the LORD goes on to show him those who will come upon His people from the north. We know this speaks of the route by which the Assyrians (the progressives and communists in our time) come, and have now come. The LORD’s word is spoken against these same invaders and meant for us to know and understand their end.
 
Jeremiah 1
13 And the word of the LORD came unto me the second time, saying, What see you? And I said, I see a seething pot; and the face thereof is toward the north.
14 Then the LORD said unto me, Out of the north an evil shall break forth upon all the inhabitants of the land.
15 For, lo, I will call all the families of the kingdoms of the north, says the LORD; and they shall come, and they shall set every one his throne at the entering of the gates of Jerusalem [against the ways of peace and civilization upon which the LORD founded us], and against all the walls thereof round about, and against all the cities of Judah [against all our leaders].
16 And I will utter my judgments against them touching all their wickedness, who have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, and worshipped the works of their own hands.
17 You therefore gird up your loins, and arise, and speak unto them all that I command you: be not dismayed at their faces, lest I confound you before them.
18 For, behold, I have made you this day a defenced city, and an iron pillar, and brazen walls against the whole land, against the kings of Judah, against the princes thereof, against the priests thereof, and against the people of the land [against all those who have fallen away to the idols/ideas of the invaders].
19 And they shall fight against you; but they shall not prevail against you; for I am with you, says the LORD, to deliver you.
 
In Jeremiah 2, the LORD risen in Jeremiah instructs him to speaks to His people and begins with reminding them of who they are in their relationship with Him. In verse 8 He speaks explicitly of the priest and the prophet no longer calling on or knowing Him but instead speaking the ideas of Baal, which are worthless. The LORD then in verse 18 asks why the people drink the water of Sihor (the Nile), Egypt (captivity), and Assyria (the communists). Again, we see the problem as the words that flow to the masses: now the fake news media broadcasting only what is against our traditional Godly culture and instead by lies and misrepresentation glorify the aberrant and anarcho-communist.
 
Jeremiah 2
1 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
2 Go and cry in the ears of Jerusalem, saying, Thus says the LORD; I remember you, the kindness of your youth, the love of your espousals, when you went after me in the wilderness, in a land that was not sown.
3 Israel was holiness unto the LORD, and the first-fruits of his increase: all that devour him shall offend; evil shall come upon them, says the LORD.
4 Hear you the word of the LORD, O house of Jacob [those calling themselves the LORD’s, who are now unknowingly wrestling with His word and presence], and all the families of the house of Israel:
5 Thus says the LORD, What iniquity have your fathers found in me, that they are gone far from me, and have walked after vanity, and are become vain?
6 Neither said they, Where is the LORD that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, that led us through the wilderness, through a land of deserts and of pits, through a land of drought, and of the shadow of death, through a land that no man passed through, and where no man dwelt?
7 And I brought you into a plentiful country, to eat the fruit thereof and the goodness thereof; but when you entered, you defiled my land, and made mine heritage an abomination.
8 The priests said not, Where is the LORD? and they that handle the law knew me not: the pastors also transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by Baal, and walked after things that do not profit.
9 Wherefore I will yet plead [now – by this word] with you, says the LORD, and with your children’s children will I plead.
10 For pass over the isles of Chittim [the nations in the waters {ideas and ways} that have destroyed them], and see; and send unto Kedar [the darkness of these nations caused by the corrupt waters], and consider diligently, and see if there be such a thing.
11 Has a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which does not profit [My people have changed their gods to those which have destroyed these other nations – which is insane and delusional].
12 Be astonished, O you heavens, at this, and be horribly afraid, be you very desolate, says the LORD.
13 For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.
14 Is Israel a servant? is he a home-born slave? why is he spoiled?
15 The young lions roared upon him, and yelled, and they made his land waste: his cities are burned without inhabitant.
16 Also the children of Noph [those who have grown up {as trees} to rule over the captives] and Tahapanes [whose word turned you away] have broken the crown of your head [have drawn you away from your position with the LORD].
17 Have you not procured this unto yourself, in that you have forsaken the LORD your God, when he led you by the way?
18 And now what have you to do in the way of Egypt, to drink the waters of Sihor [the Nile]? or what have you to do in the way of Assyria, to drink the waters of the river?
19 Your own wickedness shall correct you, and your backslidings shall reprove you: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that you have forsaken the LORD your God, and that my fear is not in you, says the LORD God of hosts.
20 For of old time I have broken your yoke, and burst your bands; and you said, I will not transgress; when upon every high hill and under every green tree you wandered, playing the harlot [were unfaithful to the LORD and your promise].
21 Yet I had planted you a noble vine, wholly a right seed: how then are you turned into the degenerate plant of a strange vine unto me? [Not knowing Him at His appearing.]
 
The word “root out” in the title is from the Hebrew word natach, literally meaning to tear away. It is the equivalent of the Greek word harpazo, which as we know is the word the false prophets have twisted into an off the planet rapture – which in turn causes them and those they mislead to deny the LORD has come to correct their errors. As we know the LORD uses the word harpazo three times in John 10 to give its true and full meaning. It is first used in verse 12 telling of these same events, when the hireling, who isn’t the good shepherd, leaves the flock, and the wolf comes and catches the sheep. This answers the question the LORD rhetorically asks ending verse 21 above: these events are how His sheep have been turned into a degenerate plant of a strange vine to Him.
 
John 10
12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep, and flees: and the wolf catches [harpazo] them, and scatters the sheep.
13 The hireling flees [from the fight], because he is an hireling, and cares not for the sheep.
 
1 Samuel 17
…Your servant kept his father’s sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock:
35 And I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his mouth: and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him.
36 Your servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine [these flesh men wallowing in their mire] shall be as one of them, seeing he has defied the armies of the living God.
37 David said [I say] moreover, The LORD that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine.
 
It is from the hands of these wicked men the LORD comes to gather His sheep again into one flock. This is the mission on which I am sent, and no man will (with lies) rapture the sheep from My hand. Thus says the LORD, “Do you see and hear Me yet?”
 
John
13 The hireling flees, because he is an hireling, and cares not for the sheep.
14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
15 As the Father knows me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
17 Therefore does my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
19 There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.
20 And many of them said, He has a devil, and is mad; why hear you him?
21 Others said, These are not the words of him that has a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?
22 And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.
23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon’s porch.
24 Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long do you make us to doubt? If you be the Christ, tell us plainly.
25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and you believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me.
26 But you believe not, because you are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck [harpazo] them out of my hand.
29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck [harpazo] them out of my Father’s hand.
30 I and my Father are one.
31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do you stone me?
33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone you not; but for blasphemy; and because that you, being a man, make yourself God.
34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, You are gods?
35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;
36 Say you of him, whom the Father has sanctified, and sent into the world, You blaspheme; because I said, I am the Son of God?
37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.
 
In verse 34 above the LORD quotes Psalms 82:6, a Psalm describing when the LORD is in the sanctuary among the mighty. It is the LORD telling us it is His presence as a mighty warrior in us, that delivers the poor and needy (His sheep) out of the hand of the wicked.
 
Psalms 82
1 God stands in the congregation of the mighty; he judges among the gods.
2 How long will you judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.
3 Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.
4 Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.
5 They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
6 I have said, You are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
7 But you shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
8 Arise, O God, judge the earth: for you shall inherit all nations.
 
As we know, the word harpazo appears in Jude 23 telling of using fear to “pull them out” of the fire (remember our discussion in the prior post of Jerubbaal, who is Gideon, using fright to contend with the idol/ideas of Baal). As we know from other discussions, it is these men’s work’s that have caused the fires, in which their ideas are melting away and their works are burning up. Their works are their corrupted ideas, which are described in verse 5 above as these men not having understanding and walking in darkness, of which they are unaware and that are also the cause of the foundations of the earth being out of course.
 
Again, these men need to understand the character and person of the LORD: He has not sent me into the world to destroy them, but to pull them from the fires that will. They should fear the fact they have rejected the salvation He has sent them, and instead choose to trample His grace under their feet.
 
Jude
10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.
11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withers, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;
13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the LORD comes with ten thousands of his saints,
15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince [by this word] all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speak great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage.
17 But, beloved, remember you the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our LORD Jesus Christ;
18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
20 But you, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our LORD Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
23 And others save with fear, pulling them out [harpazo] of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
25 To the only wise God our Savior, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
 
2 Peter 3
5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the LORD as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
9 The LORD is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
10 But the day of the LORD will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements [stoicheion – these men’s foundational ideas] shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements [stoicheion – corrupted ideas] shall melt with fervent heat?
13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwell righteousness.
14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that you look for such things, be diligent that you may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
15 And account that the longsuffering of our LORD is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him has written unto you;
16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrestle, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. [It is their ignorance and lack of knowledge that destroys them: their own ways. They know nothing because the LORD hasn’t shown them, and when He has through these messages they reject it out of hand. They are the mighty, giants among men, and how dare someone as lowly as I seek to correct them; “but I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.”]
17 You therefore, beloved, seeing you know these things before, beware lest you also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness.
18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
 
Hebrews 10
15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,
16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,
20 By a new and living way, which he has consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
21 And having an high priest over the house of God;
22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together [into One body], as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as you see the day [the light] approaching.
26 For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins,
27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
28 He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose you, shall he be thought worthy, who has trodden under foot the Son of God, and has counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and has done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
30 For we know him that has said, Vengeance belongs unto me, I will recompense, says the LORD. And again, The LORD shall judge his people.
31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
 
Ezekiel 19
1 Moreover take you up a lamentation for the princes of Israel [the leaders of God’s people],
2 And say, What is your mother? A lioness: she lay down among lions, she nourished her whelps among young lions.
3 And she brought up one of her whelps: it became a young lion, and it learned to catch the prey; it devoured men.
4 The nations also heard of him; he was taken in their pit, and they brought him with chains unto the land of Egypt [captivity].
5 Now when she saw that she had waited, and her hope was lost, then she took another of her whelps, and made him a young lion.
6 And he went up and down among the lions, he became a young lion, and learned to catch the prey, and devoured men.
7 And he knew their desolate palaces, and he laid waste their cities; and the land was desolate, and the fullness thereof, by the noise of his roaring.
8 Then the nations set against him on every side from the provinces, and spread their net over him: he was taken in their pit.
9 And they put him in ward in chains, and brought him to the king of Babylon [confusion]: they brought him into holds, that his voice should no more be heard upon the mountains of Israel.
10 Your mother is like a vine in your blood, planted by the waters: she was fruitful and full of branches by reason of many waters.
11 And she had strong rods for the scepters of them that bare rule, and her stature was exalted among the thick branches, and she appeared in her height with the multitude of her branches.
12 But she was plucked up [nathash] in fury, she was cast down to the ground, and the east wind dried up her fruit: her strong rods were broken and withered; the fire consumed them.
13 And now she is planted in the wilderness, in a dry and thirsty ground.
14 And fire is gone out of a rod of her branches, which has devoured her fruit, so that she has no strong rod to be a scepter to rule. This is a lamentation, and shall be for a lamentation.
 
Ezekiel 20
1 And it came to pass in the seventh year, in the fifth month, the tenth day of the month [10 May 1994], that certain of the elders of Israel came to enquire of the LORD, and sat before me.
2 Then came the word of the LORD unto me, saying,
3 Son of man, speak unto the elders of Israel, and say unto them, Thus says the LORD God; Are you come to enquire of me? As I live, says the LORD God, I will not be enquired of by you.
4 Will you judge them, son of man, will you judge them? cause them to know the abominations of their fathers:
5 And say unto them, Thus says the LORD God; In the day when I chose Israel, and lifted up mine hand unto the seed of the house of Jacob, and made myself known unto them in the land of Egypt [their captivity], when I lifted up mine hand unto them, saying, I am the LORD your God;
6 In the day that I lifted up mine hand unto them, to bring them forth of the land of Egypt into a land that I had espied for them, flowing with milk and honey, which is the glory of all lands:
7 Then said I unto them, Cast you away every man the abominations of his eyes, and defile not yourselves with the idols of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
 
Revelation 11
15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our LORD, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,
17 Saying, We give you thanks, O LORD God Almighty, which are, and was, and are to come; because you have taken to you your great power, and have reigned.
18 And the nations were angry, and your wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that you should give reward unto your servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear your name, small and great; and should destroy them which destroy the earth.
19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: [this rightly divided word] and there was lightning, and voices, and thundering, and an earthquake, and great hail. [All these are the spiritual effects of the living word, which has been dead and lay in the streets of Egypt until the LORD raised Himself in me and in those who have heard HIM SPEAKING THROUGH ME. Tell the enemies, THIS IS THE SWORD OF THE LORD and of His feller of mighty men.]
