Today's Reading: Jeremiah 24
Please read Jeremiah 24 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below.

Please click the links below to Jeremiah 24:
This chapter's historical background is the beginning of King Zedekiah's reign. Nebuchadnezzar had just deported King Jehoiachin and many other Israelites to Babylon (597 B.C.). Zedekiah and those who remained behind had been spared God's judgment. For this reason, they arrogantly and mistakenly believed that Jeremiah's prophecies of total destruction were misguided or wrong.
The first basket of figs was considered to contain good fruit. Good in a sense that God would spiritually purify and refine them through suffering during their time in exile 9v.5). After their exile they would return to their homeland (v.6), reject all false gods and turn back to God with all their hearts (v.7).
The second basket contained bad figs (v.2), which represented King Zedekiah and those who remained in Jerusalem after the recent capture and deportation. those left behind would continue to oppose Jeremiah and his message. As a result, they would experience the incredible horrors and disgrace of Jerusalem's fall in 586 B.C..
What has this historical story to do with you today? If you were there, what could be your decision? What is your recent decision to follow God and His prophets guidance?
My Spiritual Journal
What I receive from Jesus is: Follow God and His leaders guidance!
There are lots of signs to let you know who are God's servants and prophets. Once you know they are belong to God you need to follow their advice with faith. Yes, it's not easy to discern who is right and who is wrong at some critical moment.
Let me give some examples:
1. Your church has two groups of people, one is to stay in your church to continue a rent for the third term of another five years, one is to move out, buy a piece of land and build but have not enough money. Which group are you going to vote for?
2. Your church is having a campaign to change all the chairs, all 400 of them. There are two groups of people, one group is for the idea and the other group is to insist on saving money using those torn-up chairs. Which group do you vote for? How can you help the other group to understand your point?
These two situation is just two very small examples, not so serious as that in this chapter, but it happens. So, how can you be certain of your discernment?
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to learn how to discern your will so that we won't be part of those group opposing your lead. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
