Jeremiah (Program #13) – God’s Economy with His Dispensing in Jeremiah (2)
It seems upon casual reading of the Old Testament that the central focus of the book is the law of Moses. When God brought Moses to the mountain and deliver the ten commandments that surely was a key moment, a key factor in God’s dealing with His people Israel. But in the New Testament, the apostle Paul tells us that the law was not part of God’s original intention for man, rather it was something added due to man’s failures and sins. In Galatians chapter 3 he says, “Why then the law? It was added because of the transgressions until the seed should come to whom the promise was made, it being ordained through angels in the hand of a mediator. ” Actually God’s intention for man has never changed. From the beginning He has desire that He Himself would be everything to man. And Jeremiah, he lamented that His people Israel had forsaken Him, the fountain of living waters. If we have this view of God’s eternal desire, our understanding of such Old Testament books as Jeremiah will be greatly uplifted.
