Jeremiah the Phrophet by Nina Keegan


I love this man of God.. 
He had such a strong anointing and yet he had such inner struggles as to the call on his life…He did not back down no matter his inhibitions..

 Perhaps more than any other book in the Bible, the book of Jeremiah reveals such a broadened inner grapple of a prophet of God. 

Jeremiah would confess candidly the inner turmoil he had concerning his call to prophetic ministry.
Can you imagine the anguish he had over the message of judgment upon the people and the coming destruction of the land that he had to deliver?  Yet, no matter what, he fulfilled his ministry of proclaiming God's judgment against the people of Judah and their lack of faithfulness to God ,their idolatry, and for their continuous disobedience to God's will.
I love the example of Jeremiah because he remained so faithful to God despite his countless hardships. 

Do we remain faithful in the midst of hardships? Or do we jump ship as soon as we think God has not answered us in the way or in the timing that we would've liked..? 

Jeremiah's dialogues ,prayers, and confessions, reveal such a deep understanding that this prophet had in regards to God's character and faithfulness. 

For Jeremiah there was no question… The God of Israel was the undeniable God of all creation!

Jeremih had such a desire to have a deep rooted relationship with God and an understanding of the Word of God. It was the centerpiece of his life in his speech. God himself promised to touch Jeremiah's life and infuse his words into Jeremiah's mind and speech.
From that day forward there was no question this prophets soul would be like an unquenchable fire burning with the words, wisdom  and the heart of God.

Jeremiah was so very aware of the provisions and blessings of the covenant between God and Israel. This was a covenant that bound Israel to God in such a special way. Such a bond of faithfulness, love and hope. But there were two sides to this covenant... faithfulness to the Lord would bring blessings and vast abundance, but disobedience, would result in monumental punishment, exile and complete destruction.

Jeremiah was continually calling people to obey the words of the covenant and to turn from their idolatry and their  unjust treatment of one another (Jer11:6-7)

Jeremiah's message of judgment would also contain strong words of hope... He would tell  of promises that a righteous remnant would be restored!

The land had been so utterly defiled by the people's idolatry. 

Leaders had a literally brought the nation to the brink of ultimate disaster and we're exiled.  But because of God's  pure love for Israel, he promised to bring all of his people back from captivity and restore them to blessings... ultimately Israel's enemies would be annihilated and the people would praise joyfully over the goodness of God's glory and faithfulness.

I see so many correlations between that story and today… We must repent of our disobedience, idolatry sin and unfaithfulness to God!

There are two sides to God's covenant that still remain… We too can be blessed for obedience and we can reap the rewards... or we can reap punishment in the harvest of  disobedience.
God is calling us to heed the warning  ..just like he was calling Jeremiah to sound the alarm… God is sounding an alarm today for us..

Let's stand together and pray that God would indeed restore, bless, and heal our land as we repent and turn away from disobedience. Let's have a call to repentance, and humble ourselves and turn from our wicked ways and let Jeremiah's message of hope serve as a vast message of hope to all today that yes indeed we also would be the righteous remnant that would be restored because of God's everlasting love for us all.
I declare that we will sing joyfully of God's goodness! 

Jeremiah 9:23-26
Let not the Wiseman glory and his wisdom, but not the mighty man glory in his mind, nor let the rich me and glory in his riches, but let him who glories glory in this,
That he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord, exercising loving kindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight, says the Lord.

Hear the word which the Lord speaks to you, or house of Israel. Thus says the Lord

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. NIV

Jeremiah 23:5
"The days are coming," declares the LORD, "when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land." NIV

Jeremiah 17:5
This is what the LORD says: "Cursed are those who trust in mortals, who depend on flesh for their strength and whose hearts turn away from the LORD." NIV
Jeremiah 31:33
"This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time," declares the LORD. "I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.

God bless you all!

Calling All Watchman by Nina Keegan

Calling on the WATCHMAN! 

Isaiah 62:6
I have set watchmen on your walls, oh Jerusalem, they shall never hold their peace day or night. You who MAKE MENTION of the Lord, do not keep silent and give him no rest untill he establishes, and untill he makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

Make mention, it means spring into mind, recollect also to mention meditate on, mark down, recall, and retain in one's thoughts. To remember something or someone is to approve of, to acknowledge as a matter of importance, whereas to forget something or someone is to dismiss or abandon as unimportant. In the new government God promises to never again remember Israel's Sin...

The true spirit of prayer is watchfulness and restlessness… Being a watchmen means "on the Lord's watch"… Isaiah calls intercessors watchmen, noting that they are positioned high on the walls with such a great perspective 
They have an advantage to view and to be prayerfully focused in three directions, in the city, among the nations, and as well as developments in Heaven itself!

Ezekiel 3:17  

“Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel. Whenever you hear a word from my mouth, you shall give them warning from me.


Watchman take stock of all that's going on with a spirit of urgent restlessness, refusing to keep silent before God! 

We must be diligent in prayer, we must go to the throne room of God on our knees and cry out to God for all that we need… We, all together can be the standard God uses against the enemy! 

God says if his people would repent and turn away from their sins, He would hear our cries from heaven and would heal us and restore our land… We must pay attention! We mustn't lose focus, the enemy comes like a thief in the night seeking whom he can destroy!

It seems like our Christianity is under siege… Our very free society is under attack, our first amendment is under attack.. everything seems very different now and it seems like it's all happening under are very noses… The enemy hide in plain sight!

One little trickle of water, one minuscule  crack in a pipe can cause a disaster in the long run.. but at first it seems so slow a leak that you can't see the damage behind the walls ... We can't see what's actually going on behind the walls... 
we can't see what's actually going on behind the scenes... We aren't invited into the meeting rooms were the enemy plans his schemes..
Then before you know it , the tiny leak becomes a flood of damage. ..The damage is Many times irreversible at it comes at an overwhelming cost!

What are we willing to lose?

We must keep an eye out, we must pray, seek God's  face for His divine wisdom, his strategy, his plan, his will, we must cry out to heaven and use our authority against the enemy's plans to destroy us.  We must put on our battle armor, praise and worship the Lord in the heavenly realm and 
Fight the good fight of faith! 

We must take back the land that the enemy has occupied… We must have unity where there is division… A house divided cannot stand! We all live in this nation, this world, we all need to take care of it and respect one another and stand united to keep this nation free, peaceful and just! 
We must get our news from the Lord… His Word be truth and every man a liar! 
There is abundant victory in unity… We are all here for such a time as this… There should be no talk of division… We are all created equally by God.. it doesn't matter what color your skin is because our souls are all the same color!
We all live here,  we all must take care of each other! 
I have been in many Third World countries… I've seen the way some of the corrupt parts of the world live. I've seen great poverty, great starvation, great hunger! I've been in places where Bibles are not allowed, where open worship is not allowed! 
These places are so impoverished, hopeless, and filled with despair.. These places are very dark places to live… I am always so grateful to be back in our free country where we can still openly praise God and stand on his word without fear! 

We must stand strong and not let the enemy's rhetoric divide us… God will settle and solve the cases of his people… He is a just God!
Let's check our hearts, and let's pray for the hearts of all to know the love of God! Hurt people will hurt people! 

Ezekiel 33:6  But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman's hand.

Let's be the watchmen, let's be prayerful, let's be part of the solution .. We are all going to give an account for the things we did do while on this earth, but I also believe we will give an account for the things we did not do! 
 Let's  prayerfully  and powerfully enter the throne room of God and ask God what his plan is, what He would have us do...

Let's sound the alarm, let's let our battle cries be heard in Heaven! 

We are raised up and seated in heavenly places with Jesus at the right hand of our Father… And from there we can rule and reign in life, the enemy is a footstool under our feet… he has no authority, and  at the name of Jesus he must bow down and flee!!!!

No weapon formed against us can ever prosper… The enemy knows his days are numbered… Let's remind him who we all are . WE ARE GOD'S WATCHMAN! Let's agree together that we are delivered from all evil!!!

Isaiah 52:8 

The voice of your watchmen—they lift up their voice; together they sing for joy; for eye to eye they see the return of the Lord to Zion.

God's vision will always be divine truth, God's word will never lie to us!

Habakkuk 2:1-20 

I will take my stand at my watchpost and station myself on the tower, and look out to see what he will say to me, and what I will answer concerning my complaint. And the Lord answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay. “Behold, his soul is puffed up; it is not upright within him, but the righteous shall live by his faith. “Moreover, wine is a traitor, an arrogant man who is never at rest. His greed is as wide as Sheol; like death he has never enough. He gathers for himself all nations and collects as his own all peoples.” 

God bless you all… Please share!!

Check yourself by Nina Keegan


2Timothy 3:1-13
Scripture ...But understand this, that in the last days hard times will come— for people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, hardhearted, unforgiving, backbiting, without self-control, brutal, hating what is good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to an outward form of godliness but denying its power. Avoid these people! For among these are those who slip into households and deceive weak women weighed down with sins, led away by various desires, always learning yet never able to come to the knowledge of truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so do these people oppose the truth, men corrupted in mind and worthless concerning the faith. But these people will not make any more progress—for their folly, like that of Jannes and Jambres, will be obvious to everyone. You, however, closely followed my teaching, manner of life, purpose, faithfulness, patience, love, perseverance— as well as persecutions and sufferings that happened to me in Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra. What persecutions I endured! And the Lord rescued me from them all! Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Messiah Yeshua will be persecuted. But evil men and imposters will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.
2 Timothy 3:1‭-‬13

Paul's reference to the, last days, reveals his sense of urgency. The last days began after Jesus's resurrection when the Holy Spirit came upon the believers at Pentecost. The last days will continue until Christ's second coming. This means that we too are living in the last days and we should make the most of the time that God has given us here on earth.

We all should daily check our lives against Paul's list so we do not give into societies pleasures… We must be ready, vigilant, we never know when Christ will return…

We can read the scripture in Matthew that says in the end, many Christians will fall away… This gives me such pause… We mustn't settle for the comfort without commitment, WE MUST STAND! stand up against evil by living as God would have his people live.

Why is it so tempting to love pleasure rather than God? Sin is fun for a season.. it's a snare!!!  A trap from the enemy!… We may not see the consequences of sin immediately, so we think we have  gotten away with something... God will not be mocked!!! Rest assured, God sees everything, and He knows our hearts! ...Pleasure is something we can control and God cannot be controlled..
We as believers must continuously grow in our knowledge of the Word because ignorance can make us vulnerable to deception… We are in the world, but not of the world!

We must remember that the enemy was once living in heaven… He knows the word and he knows how to twist it… Do not be tricked, know the word for yourself!

The Bible says in 2 Timothy 2:22
That we must run from anything that stimulates youthful lust's. Instead, we must pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts.

It goes on to say in verse 23, again I say, don't get involved in foolish, ignorant, arguments that only start fights.

God is our vindicator, God is our redeemer… Let's plead our cases to God, let's let Him handle and settle all of these injustices!

 2Timothy 2:19
God's truth stands firm like a foundation stone with this inscription, "The Lord knows those who are his and all who belong to the Lord must turn away from evil!"

I pray a fresh alignment and a fresh assignment for each and every one of us as we are God's watchmen on the wall, God is using us to hold open the gates for the gospel!

When the enemy comes in like a flood, God will raise a standard against the enemy, God is using all of us to raise the standard against all evil… Check your hearts, check your minds, what are you thinking on, are you reacting to evil or are you trusting God, we must pray more than we complain.. let's speak the word over evil because in the HOLY NAME OF JESUS ,
The enemy has to flee!!!
It's time, take your authority,!!!

"Lord hear our cries, and help us to stay on your path, help us  to be bold for your name, we pray that what the enemy has meant for harm,  God you will use for good, we pray that we will overcome evil with good, we pray for protection, guidance, and that no weapon formed against your people can ever prosper...
Vindicate, redeem, restore, unite, prosper, heal, and bring peace to your people, this nation, and the world… We repent of our sins and ask you to forgive us this day! Have your way!... Holy spirit come! Let your glory fall like never before!
For we ask this in Jesus name!
Hallelujah! Amen!"

In Matt 24:10 Jesus predicts that in the endtime many will fall away The result is that they will hate one another, wickedness will be multiplied, and love will grow cold. Yet whoever endures in love until the end will be saved (vv. 11, 13)

Ephesians 5:16
Make the most of your time because the days are evil.

2Timothy 2:15
Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval. Be a good worker, one who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly explains the word of truth. Avoid worthless, foolish talk that only leads to more godless behavior.

James 4:7
Submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you
