God Told Them “Your Ministry is Like Sodom and Gomorrah”

Jeremiah 23 is blowing my mind right now. Many many gems in this chapter concerning false prophets and priests versus the words of Gods Holiness.

Take a look at this:

Jeremiah 23:14
14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness; they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.

Notice this about Gods view of the profane prophets:
-They committed adultery
-They walked in lies
-They strengthened the hands of evildoers, that none repented from wickedness…

Strengthening the hands of evildoers – supporting them motivating them and bringing profit to them, joining with them, signing with them, “collabing” with them, and partnering with them instead of requiring repentance from them – is seen by God on the same level as adultery and living a lie (hypocrisy). It’s also seen as the ministry equivalent to Sodom and Gomorrah.

So the preacher or artist that commits adultery, the preacher or artist that is exposed as a hypocrite… And the preacher or artist that changes his message from repentance to partnership with evildoers – are the same in Gods eyes – wicked, dangerous, and in need of mercy and repentance before they get destroyed.

Read the rest of Jeremiah 23 for more gems and treasures…
