Jeremiah 8:20 

 

The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.

 

 

LESSON

 

The time for divine deliverance had come and gone. The Lord had left them exposed to judgment, as grain left standing after the harvest. “It would appear that we have here a popular proverb used in daily life when men encountered a hopeless situation from which no deliverance or escape seemed possible. Jeremiah pictured the people of Judah as having passed by one opportunity after another to repent of their rebellious ways and so be delivered or saved from coming judgment.

In a real sense, man without God is in captivity. He is captive to his sin. That’s why Jesus came – to set ”the captive free.” In Luke 4:18-1, He said, ”The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.
