Listen quietly to the word of the Lord; discern and listen clearly then preach God’s word bravely.

Let us consider well, obey completely and spread the Lord’s word then the enemies will flee.

Key Verses Genesis 48:11 / Jeremiah 1:7-8

Genesis 48 / Jeremiah 1

1.  Discern and listen clearly

Though Jacob’s carnal eyes were failing, he discerned in the Spirit. He did not submit to man’s will but proclaimed God’s will. He discerned and listened clearly to God’s words. He turned people to the Lord to do His will.

2.  Preach God’s word bravely

He who is called by God must first listen quietly and be filled God’s words. He must see correctly and hear clearly before he is sent by God. If we preach God’s word bravely, God will be with us.

Psalm 48 / Revelation 13:1                             Honor His way / The enemy escapes

Do not fear the enemy though he has ten horns and seven heads. Great is the Lord for he is my fortress. Consider well, obey completely and spread the Lord’s word. When God is with me the enemies will flee.

Genesis 49 / Jeremiah 2 4 paragraphs 8 vs. 9

Blessed is he who departs from evil and honors His way. Disgraced is he who departs from the Lord and turns his back from Him.

Psalm 49 / Revelation 13:2

Worldly prestige and splendor are all in vain. Only through understanding and saving others we will gain eternal life.

Key Verses Genesis 49:10 / Jeremiah 2:13

Genesis 49 / Jeremiah 2

1. Depart from evil and honor His way

He who gratifies his sinful desires loses God’s grace. Cursed are those who follow the flesh and hate people. But those who have another intention – departing from evil and honoring His way, overcoming the enemy by trusting in the Lord will be blessed greatly.

2. Stray from the Lord and be disgraced

When God’s children forsook the Lord, backslid and loved other gods, ran wild as inspired by human desire, and abandoned the living water and dug broken cisterns, they would not succeed but be disgraced.

Psalm 49 / Revelation 13:2                            Eternal life / Worldly splendor

The worldly riches, power and splendor are all meaningless. The result is destruction. When you are rich, pursue understanding quickly. Proclaim salvation widely and lead others to have the true blessing of eternal life.

Key Verses Genesis 50:20 / Jeremiah 3:12

Genesis 50/ Jeremiah 3

1.  Mourn and bury

There was a great mourning at Abel Mizraim. We should confess and contrite, bury our old self and return to the Lord wholeheartedly. He will save us and make us fruitful and increase in number. We will also possess the land of other nations..

2.  Return from rebellion

Return quickly, you who are faithless. Though you have lived as prostitutes, you can return to God.  So long as you confess and seek God earnestly, God will save you and comfort you.

Psalm 50 / Revelation 13:3                            Glorify God / Follow the beast

Even when the whole world is following the beast, God calls on His people to listen to Him. It is not a matter of offering but be sure to remove your wickedness. Be thankful and pay your vows to preach and glorify God.
