What is the meaning of the Jeremiah 29:11 according to the Hebrew and Greek bibles?
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jer:29:11:
Before I answer I'll like you to read this:
Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools [ 1:7 The Hebrew words rendered [ fool ] in Proverbs, and often elsewhere in the Old Testament, denote one who is morally deficient. ] despise wisdom and discipline.
But When you fear the Lord you will shine with the radiance generated from the spirit of wisdom that will radiate from you, and this will purify your spirit and there by live peacefully and assured protection from the Lord. You will also always achieve your goals.
This is such a beautiful piece of scripture i couldn't help myself.
Jeremiah 29:8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye cause to be dreamed.
(we have this same situation in our societies today: people who interpret dreams that are not sent of God, diviners (witchcraft) false prophets, these are deceiving Gods people as many deceive people today)
Jeremiah 29:9 For they prophesy falsely unto you in my name: I have not sent them, saith the LORD.
(There are many examples of false religions and false beliefs of bad people that wield the christian name and those that use a mask of christian(ity) while accomplishing evil)
Jeremiah 29:10 For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.
(another prophecy, 70yrs in the future and another promise)
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
(God is reassuring his people that he has only good intentions but that this time of trouble and trial will produce a cleansing effect of a purer path which is Gods expected end for them.)
Jeremiah 29:12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
Jeremiah 29:13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with ALL your heart.
(This is where people deceive themselves they say oh there are so many paths to God how am i to tell which one is real? and yet God says here and elsewhere, if a heart look for me i will be found)
Jeremiah 29:14 And I will be found of you, saith the LORD: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the LORD; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.
(This is a terrific verse.. God is doing the work of sending them into captivity, not satan. God did not call upon the evil cosmic arch enemy of God LOL to do this work. God is in full control and needs no help in his lordship over their ways)
