Past teaching- [These are parts of my past teaching that relate- Verses below]
Today I spoke on the verses from the Mass- Church Unlimited- and New Christian Harvest.
I already taught on Samuel 1- and will post that below.
In Jeremiah we read-
Jeremiah 20:7 O LORD, thou hast deceived me, and I was deceived; thou art stronger than I, and hast prevailed: I am in derision daily, every one mocketh me.
Jeremiah 20:8 For since I spake, I cried out, I cried violence and spoil; because the word of the LORD was made a reproach unto me, and a derision, daily.
The prophet had received a divine calling from God- to speak his word.
The message was not easy- and like most of us- he figured he would simply call it quits.
But then he realized- he couldn’t!
Jeremiah 20:9 Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.
That’s why he said ‘You God-have tricked me’!
The gifts and callings of God our without repentance- meaning- once your in- there is no way out.
For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
In Matthew we see the rebuke of Peter by Jesus-
Matthew 16:21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.
Matthew 16:22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.
Matthew 16:23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.
Peter was seeing the movement [of Jesus] as a great ministry- I mean he just told Peter he was the rock [His confession actually]. [Some sites see here https://ccoutreach87.webstarts.com/blog/post/sunday-sermon-205 ]
And yet now- because he is thinking in human terms- he is used by satan himself to
