Mo. 10/6/14: Jeremiah 2:31 – 32 Can a nation forget God?
“O generation, see the word of the Lord!
Have I been a wilderness to Israel,
Or a land of darkness?
Why do My people say, ‘We are lords;
We will come no more to You’?
Can a virgin forget her ornaments,
Or a bride her attire?
Yet My people have forgotten Me days without number.
Can a nation forget God? Yes a nation and an individual could forget God.
Tu. 10/7/14: Jeremiah 23:24, 28 – 30a Can we hide from God?
Can anyone hide himself in secret places,
So I shall not see him?” says the Lord;

“The prophet who has a dream, let him tell a dream;
And he who has My word, let him speak My word faithfully.
What is the chaff to the wheat?” says the Lord.
“Is not My word like a fire?” says the Lord,
“And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?
Can we hide from God? No one hides from God.
We. 10/8/14: Ezekiel 22:13 – 14 Can you endure against God?
“Behold, therefore, I beat My fists at the dishonest profit which you have made, and at the bloodshed which has been in your midst. Can your heart endure, or can your hands remain strong, in the days when I shall deal with you? I, the Lord, have spoken, and will do it.
Can you endure against God? No, God sees all.

Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?
Will a lion roar in the forest, when he has no prey?
Will a young lion cry out of his den, if he has caught nothing?
Will a bird fall into a snare on the earth, where there is no trap for it?
Will a snare spring up from the earth, if it has caught nothing at all?
Can two walk together? Yes, if they agree.
Fr. 10/10/14: James 2:22 – 24 Can faith be without works?
Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect? And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” And he was called the friend of God. You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.
Can faith be without works? No. Even the dying thief showed his faith by telling.
