Jeremiah 13: Symbol of the Linen Sash

Published

on

The linen sash. God commands Jeremiah to illustrate a message to the people through a symbolic act. The prophet was to make a sash of linen, a fine fabric that was used for the priestly garments (Exod. 28.39). It was to be worn as part of his clothing.

When placed on “his loins,” that is, around his waist next to his skin, it would symbolize the intimate communion that the Lord wanted to have with Israel.

The Most High was teaching the man can only have life and fulfill His purposes when he is connected to Him. He also instructed that the sash should not be washed to represent the dirt accumulated from their lack of repentance.

As long as the sash was new and clean, it showed the purity and holiness of their first love. but when it became dirty, it revealed the spiritual and moral filth of those who had broken their Covenant with God. Israel had been chosen by the Most High to be a kingdom of priests, a sign of their spiritual position in the world (Exod. 19.6). Yet they failed by disregarding His Holy Commandments.

The potter and the clay. To emphasize His Message, the Most High sent Jeremiah to the potter’s house.

There, he would clearly understand how God works.

The prophet would see how the potter cleaned the clay, for in its original state, this raw material can never be molded.

He would also observe the ideal measure of moisture to preserve the clay, as well as see the agility and strength of the potter’s hands when molding clay into the desired shape.

Another important detail was to understand the speed of the machine when the pedal was pressed. This would make the wheel spin while the clay was molded.

Lastly, the prophet would understand the importance of the potter’s patience while he dedicated himself entirely to his project. With this, God wanted to show that He has a perfect purpose for His children, but He can only fulfill it when they submit to Him

Haggai 2: The People Are Defiled

Published

Who saw this Temple in its former glory? By comparing the first temple to the second, the Jews became discouraged, because it lacked the splendor and the riches of the first, built by Soloman (Ezra 3.12). God knew that, but by asking who had seen the glory of the first Temple, He wanted to hear the response of the people.

Unable to see with the eyes of faith, the Jews did not believe that the glory of God would come in a much greater way.

They did not understand that the Divine glory was not conditioned to the beauty or physical greatness of the Template, but to complaining, looking at the past , at what they were or what they did, waste the opportunity of seeing the greatness of the Most High in their life. In order not to lose focus or opportunities, we must focus on the direction He has given through His Word, without looking at anything or anyone.

Therefore, restoring the Temple was crucial, for the rebuilding of the place also meant the restoration of the spiritual life of the people.

Through Haggai, the will of the Most High was announced to the leaders of the leader of the people: Zerubbabel, the governor, and Joshua, the high priest. The Jews were encourage to begin the work, but , because of spiritual weakness, they did not complete it and they began actin as if nothing were happening.
