JEREMIAH AND PROPHESY III:  After 2 and 1/2 years of the monthly study of
Jeremiah and Prophesy, the conclusions and applications to America and the rest of the
world--after all Jeremiah was designated by God to be a Prophet to all nations-- are coming so
rapidly, that it is almost impossible to patiently deal with them month by month.  To speed up
the study, SunGrist_Bible passes into a new phase called "Jeremiah III" where on this page of
the biblecombibleman.com website, you will be able at your own pace to plunge ahead into
more meaty aspects of "Jeremiah and Prophesy".  However, you that plunge into this more
"post-graduate" level are encouraged to pick up, at your own pace, on the more fundamental
studies,
"Bible Studies in Jeremiah and Prophesy" and the "Advanced Studies in Jeremiah"  
Several realities of the contemporary world demand we do so:  (1) the changing nature of the
Arab world in countries like Egypt, Syria, Tunisia, and others; (2) the overwhelming world and
US calamities of the first and second kind with the confusion  between the two kinds--after all
the word "calamity", and at several levels looms large in Jeremiah as well as the words "idol"
and "idolatry" that often brings calamities of the first kind; (3) the startling similarities between
the false official prophets and priests of Jeremiah that led God's people into idolatry and the
practices and dreams of false prophets and shepherds of today; and (4) related to number 3 is
similarities to the two top level evils of God's people of Jeremiah--forsaking the God of the
living fountain of water and making broken cisterns as substitutes for God, idols if you would,
that can hold no water--to the 5 stages of the great Apostasy called the Falling Away that
Americans are passing through in this generation immediately before the Second Coming of
Christ, along with some of the broken cisterns that shepherds of today offer God's people as
substitutes like Messianic Judaism, Mormonism based on 4 new Bibles not recognized by
Christians, one thousand years on earth,  a predicted and false rapture before the Second
Coming, and the Gospel of Prosperity and Health.  Most of these substitute cisterns of living
water completely ignore the Falling Away  {in fact quite often postulated fictions of revival are
substituted to hide the Falling Away of churches and church members from God, Christ, and
the Bible} and the almost immediate withdrawal of the Holy Spirit from earth!
Prophesy in both the Old Testament, where it was very exclusive as God called only a few men
to receive revelations and where like in the book of Jeremiah all the official prophets and
priests had gone wrong, and prophesy in the New Testament, where it became more
democratic after the Coming of the Holy Spirit and the Ascended Christ appointed prophets like
pastors, teachers, evangelists and apostles; but prophesy then became not new revelations
but rather based on the recorded teachings and messages of Christ and the Apostles and
Prophets.  Thus this democratic nature of prophesy predicted in Jeremiah remained under the
control of God's written book, the Bible, and where the democratic nature of prophesy has
been perverted today is by several methods promoted by Satan:  (1) new revelations that are
falsely claimed, primarily by Pentecostals, but also by Mormons with their four extra Bibles not
accepted by Christians, and high level church leaders like the Pope who try to make extra
revelations by their decrees; (2) reading meaning into the Bible, isogesis, like Scoffield has
misled the fundamentalists, rather than taking the time and effort to do exegesis, "reading the
meaning out of the Bible using the ASPI; and (3) trends of the 5 stage Falling Away that
develops (a) intolerance toward sound doctrine, (b) sanctification of personal driven wants of
church members, (c) heaping up in churches and denominations of "itching ears" Bible
teachers and preachers (II Timothy 4:3,4), and (d) the current general trends of the Falling Away
as the rising tide of the mystery of lawlessness and sin (II Thessalonians) overtakes us, the
love of most Christians waxes cold as Jesus predicted, and the number of disguished false
prophets  increase who prophesy for profit and status, supported by most church members
who are deep into "turning away from truth" and being "turned into fables." And if you have
trouble accepting that this has happened to 21st century Christianity, then just look at what
happened to all God's people in Judah and Israel, including the official prophets and priests,
during the destruction and desolation phases of Jerusalem around 587 B.C.

   Ezekiel.
XI.  Predictive Prophesy in
 Jeremiah.
XII.  King Jesus Predicted, the
Branch of Righteousness
 (Jeremiah 23)
XIII.  70 Years of Desolation
Predicted (Jeremiah
  25:1-14)
"'...behold, I will send and take all the families of the
north', says the LORD, 'and Nebuchadnezzar the king
of Babylon, My servant, and will bring them against
this land, against its inhabitants, and against these
nations all around, and will uttterly destroy them, and
make them an astonishment, a hissing, and perpetual
desolations.'"  (Jeremiah 25:9)
NOTE:  Even as flowers and trees are "annual" or
"perpetual", so this desolation on the Middle East was
determined right here to be permanently perpetual.
XIV.  Cup of Fury on "All
Inhabitants of the Earth"
Predicted (Jeremiah
25:15-38)
"For behold, I begin to bring calamity on the city which
is called by My name, and should you be utterly
unpunished?  You shall not be unpunished, for I will
call for a sword on all the inhabitants of the earth,' says
the LORD of hosts.'"  (Jeremiah 25:29)
"For thus says the LORD God of Israel to me
(Jeremiah):  'Take this wine cup of fury from My hand,
and cause all the nations, to whom I send you, to drink
it.'"  (Jeremiah 25:15)
NOTE:  Upton Sinclair borrowed the phrase "Cup of
Fury" to write a book about all his writing friends like
Sinclair Lewis, Jack London, Ernest Hemmingway,
and many more to were determined to be only social
drinkers of alcohol, but who died an early and
miserable death directly as a result of this booze; but
originally here in Jeremiah it refers to the final
judgment of God, already determined on the whole
earth, when the old earth will be destroyed and the
new earth will be ushered in.
WORLD REVOLUTION OF THE ARAB/MUSLIMS MORE
THAN TERROISM:
Never forget that the final historical act for this old
world, Revelation 20:9, will be as a gigantic army
surrounds Jerusalem and the camp of the saints.
{Granted it is hard to think of the US and the UK as
"saints", but they are the best nations of Christianity
offered today!}  The US now has a big, eligible camp,
like a fortress for spying and warfare in the Middle
East; the Muslim Arabs already have Israel surrounded
north {Lebanon, and Syria}, west {Gaza and Iran}, east
{Jordan}, and south {many countries who like the
Arabs and Muslim both hate Israel and the US {even 6
out of 10 Pakistanis hate the US}, and desire
vehemently the destruction of Jerusalem.  Not to
mention the many countries of the world that might
support the Arab-Muslims in a showdown, looing for
an opening to beat down the US when and if it looks
feasible, like North Korea, Pakistan, China, Russia;
and yes, even France and Italy.  You see we are much
closer to the fulfillment of the predictive prophesy of
Revelation 20:9 than we think, much closer than the
fundamentalists led by Scoffield on eschatology want
us to believe!
As it is developed, see as part of Research and
Development, listed above and right, "
Terrorism Or
Arab/Muslim World Revolution?".  Much of this is based on
personal experience with Arabs and Muslims, teaching in Algeria
and Saudi Arabia, and instructing Libyians and Iranians at Lee
College in Baytown.

Jeremiah and prophesy.  One
of our biggest problems in
American Christianity today is
by those who seek to make a
profit {prosperity} or status out
of their missionary efforts.  It
robs temples (Romans 2:22)
and creates idols and Idolatry.  
It is so dangerous because
Americans have accepted it as
the norm.  The greedy love it!  
There is a vast gap between a
Christian philosophy which
recognizes that "the laborer is
worthy of his fire", that the
Bible does teach satisfaction
with a basic living, and this
false gospel of prosperity and
health of today!  Behind most
of these false leaders who
exemplify the personal goals,
like the savage wolves Paul
condemned  (Acts 20:29,30),
of personal profit {prosperity}
and status!
