1 Peter 5
Throughout history there have been many efforts to destroy the true church of the Lord. We have even experienced major “Christian religions” try to destroy those who follow the inspired word of God. And yet, those attempts have failed. I was reminded of this today when I read Jeremiah’s prophecy. There will always be at least a “remnant” that the Lord can use.
Jeremiah 23: I myself will gather the remnant of my flock out of all the countries where I have driven them and will bring them back to their pasture, where they will be fruitful and increase in number. 4 I will place shepherds over them who will tend them, and they will no longer be afraid or terrified, nor will any be missing,” declares the Lord.
5 “The days are coming,” declares the Lord,
“when I will raise up for David[a] a righteous Branch,
a King who will reign wisely
and do what is just and right in the land
