Seest Thou Not?
| "Seest thou not
what they do in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of
Jerusalem," (Jeremiah 7: 17). What was going on was abominable before
God and obvious for all to see. The wickedness of the people of Southern
Judah provoked God to anger.
Take a look at what goes on in the cities of our country. See what happens among government leaders, colleges, entertainment circles, divorce courts, taverns, even among those who claim to be religious and the majority of people. Do you not see why God's anger at this nation is more than justified?
Did the people who heard Jeremiah pay any attention? Not at all. They, like most today, were set in their own way. God and His will had no place in their lives. God told Jeremiah how they would react (Jeremiah 7: 27).
