Jeremiah 3:12

 

Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the LORD; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith the LORD, and I will not keep anger forever.

 

 

LESSON

 

Jeremiah was to preach to the remnant left in the Northern Kingdom, and to the exiles from that nation, that they should repent and return to the Lord. Those who had turned away from the Lord should turn back to Him. The Lord would not hold His anger against them “forever,” but would be gracious to them, if they would genuinely repent.

God has set the boundaries for all time, and this most certainly includes us, and we are constantly stepping over the line testing the limits He has prescribed for us. We freely worship everything and everyone except Him.Genuine repentance would have to include realizing and acknowledging that what they had done was iniquity, transgression of covenant commands, apostasy and spiritual adultery, and disobedience to Yahweh’s Word.
