Jeremiah Twenty-four: Puhttt-TOOEY!

20140223-135003.jpg

Chapter 24 uses the classic imagery of baskets of fruit. There are two, both filled with figs; the one was filled with good, plump figs, while the other one had nasty figs that could not be eaten.

The object lesson is obvious: Obedience is as pleasant to God as ripe, sweet figs are to us, and naughty disobedience is like nasty fruit which cannot be eaten.

Jesus speaking:

“‘I know your works that you are neither cold or hot.

I wish that you were either cold or hot!

So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold or hot, I will spit you out of my mouth.”
(Revelation 3:15, 16; my version)
