God’s plans are God’s plans.

Jeremiah 27:14-15 “Do not listen to the words of the prophets who are saying to you, ‘You shall not serve the king of Babylon,’ for it is a lie that they are prophesying to you. I have not sent them, declares the Lord, but they are prophesying falsely in my name, with the result that I will drive you out and you will perish, you and the prophets who are prophesying to you.” Brethren, in this chapter, Jeremiah speaks the Word to envoys of various nations who are convening together to discuss strategies to withstand King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. However, Jeremiah explains that God, in His sovereign will and purpose, has chosen Nebuchadnezzar as His servant to do God’s will. The “prophets” of Jerusalem were prophecying falsely in favor of fighting Nebuchadnezzar but that wasn’t God’s intended plan. All that said to say this. God’s plan for us on earth is not health, wealth, and prosperity. To say that means that you follow the prosperity gospel, and not the true gospel. Our health, wealth and prosperity are all summed up and secure in the God-Man, Jesus Christ. Anything less is idolatry. Sometimes things occur, for example, President Obama, while we all want to loathe the man for being pro-homosexuality, and pro-abortion, he speaks for the overall nation of America, while Christian’s remain silent. Yet God is not OUT OF control. He is willing these things to happen for a purpose that only has me think more and more of Revelation and Christ’s imminent Second Coming. God bless you, and keep your eyes on Jesus Christ and nothing else .
