Jeremiah 1:19 - With God on your side, you will go through the trials and emerge victorious!
"They will fight against you, But they shall not prevail against you. For I am with you,” says the LORD, “to deliver you.”" (Jeremiah 1:19)
Jeremiah 2:35 - God resists those who are self-righteous who refuse to admit their errors, but He forgives those who repent and submit to Him.
Yet you say, ‘Because I am innocent, Surely His anger shall turn from me.’ Behold, I will plead My case against you, Because you say, ‘I have not sinned.’ (Jeremiah 2:35)
Jeremiah 7:11 - This mirrors what Jesus said when the merchants were desecrating the Temple.
"Has this house, which is called by My name, become a den of thieves in your eyes? Behold, I, even I, have seen it,” says the LORD." (Jeremiah 7:11)
Jeremiah 7:18 - There is no 'queen of heaven'. She is a false god. This is one of the errors that the Catholic Church is guilty of by worshipping the Virgin Mary. She, like us, needs the perfect forgiveness of God through accepting Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior too.
"The children gather wood, the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven; and they pour out drink offerings to other gods, that they may provoke Me to anger." (Jeremiah 7:18)
Jeremiah 7:25-27 - God could have easily destroyed Israel completely seeing them descend into her complete sinfulness, but He has sent prophet after prophet to turn them back to Him. In the same way, our Heavenly Father is incredibly patient and loving towards us, not willing that any of us should perish.
"Since the day that your fathers came out of the land of Egypt until this day, I have even sent to you all My servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending them. Yet they did not obey Me or incline their ear, but stiffened their neck. They did worse than their fathers. “Therefore you shall speak all these words to them, but they will not obey you. You shall also call to them, but they will not answer you. (Jeremiah 7:25-27)
Jeremiah 9:23-24 - The only thing worth glorying in is that we know Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and because we know Him, we continually receive God's loving-kindness!
"Thus says the LORD: “Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, Let not the mighty man glory in his might, Nor let the rich man glory in his riches; But let him who glories glory in this, That he understands and knows Me, That I am the LORD, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight,” says the LORD." (Jeremiah 9:23-24)
Jeremiah 10:3-5 - Idols made by men can neither harm us nor help us. They are not alive. Do not worship them though, it opens spiritual doors for religious demons to attack.
"For the customs of the peoples are futile; For one cuts a tree from the forest, The work of the hands of the workman, with the ax. They decorate it with silver and gold; They fasten it with nails and hammers So that it will not topple. They are upright, like a palm tree, And they cannot speak; They must be carried, Because they cannot go by themselves. Do not be afraid of them, For they cannot do evil, Nor can they do any good.”" (Jeremiah 10:3-5)
Jeremiah 12:7 - God has a soul.
""I have forsaken My house, I have left My heritage; I have given the dearly beloved of My soul into the hand of her enemies." (Jeremiah 12:7)
