(Please refer to the Preface and Introduction sections found in the Jeremiah Chapter 1 commentary for some general information about this chapter by chapter study of Jeremiah).

Chapter 8

Jer 8:1 At that time, saith the LORD, they shall bring out the bones of the kings of Judah, and the bones of his princes, and the bones of the priests, and the bones of the prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, out of their graves:
Jer 8:2 And they shall spread them before the sun, and the moon, and all the host of heaven, whom they have loved, and whom they have served, and after whom they have walked, and whom they have sought, and whom they have worshipped: they shall not be gathered, nor be buried; they shall be for dung upon the face of the earth.

Either their enemies dug up their graves for possible hidden treasure, or Judah is using the bones for some sort of occultic ritual, but more likely they are simply scattered and unburied, due to so much excess death in the land, in the sight of the host of heaven, which they have worshipped. So much for the promises of the demons to take care of their followers if they would only turn from the living God to satan. He is a liar, his promises are always false, and we can rest assured that all the elite that have given their souls for temporary blessing will end up just like this.

Interesting that California passed a law in 2022 that corpses can now be used as compost. I am quite sure that that promise was not mentioned in their election campaign. Will there never be an end of laws being passed that absolutely no rational person would ever ask for? We are now finding out what it truly is like to live in a Jeremiah society.

Jer 8:3 And death shall be chosen rather than life by all the residue of them that remain of this evil family (tribe or people), which remain in all the places whither I have driven them, saith the LORD of hosts.

Just like the people who are still choosing the death jab even after all the irrefutable evidence of the harm has been made crystal clear. The bible says the wages of sin is death. The truth goes even deeper than that. When you continually exercise your will to reject the ways of the Lord, death becomes more and more the central part of your life. Look at Islam, the ultimate death cult. Can we even begin to understand what goes on in the minds of Hamas, or the Palestinians that mostly cheered and rejoiced over the slaughter of the Jews? We first tolerated abortion. Then we legalized it. The it became commonplace. Then it became celebrated. Then billboards went up stating it was a sacred act. Then we aborted babies so big pharma could dissect them alive, for research, the creation of bio weapons, and of course, big profit. In Canada especially, we now have moved into government assisted suicide. First for the terminally ill. Then for any adult, with limitations. Now for teenagers and even the mentally challenged, with almost no limitations. It is not out of the realm of possibility that eventually euthanasia won’t be voluntary.

Sexual depravity follows along the same lines. No one talks about the actual practices of the sodomites, and I will not mention it here. Suffice it to say, death is greatly accelerated in one’s life who give themselves over to these vile behaviours.

Note that the verse says death shall be chosen rather than life, even by the remnant that have escaped the first few rounds of judgment. This says that judgment does not predominantly bring revival, as the remaining few still choose the way of death rather than life. They simply cannot bear the thought of repenting, admitting they are wrong, and bowing the neck to their creator. Either they hate God because of his just punishments, or love their sin too much, or both. It doesn’t matter where they are. God could of sent them to a Christian country, or a heathen place, they are so far gone that death will still be chosen. This brings us to the doctrine of harem (kheh-rem). In Joshua 6:17 Jehovah states that Jericho is accursed (harem). This means it is a doomed object, marked for extermination, set aside to be utterly destroyed. Sometimes some one, some thing, or some tribe becomes so thoroughly corrupted, that God’s mishpat (his verdict, judgment) is that it has no possible value left, and is good for nothing but to be utterly destroyed. This is why Achan’s sin was so harshly punished (Josh ch 7). He wilfully thwarted God’s mishpat. He saw value in something that God decreed as utterly worthless. What God sets aside as harem is in a sense consecrated to him, and belongs to him and him alone. You have no right to contradict God, and take away what he has set apart. Even as the priests or the lay people could lose their lives when they defiled the holy things of the temple, so too can God strike you down if you decide in your man made idea of compassion and mercy to let the thing or person go free that God had appointed for destruction. Just ask Saul what happens when he decided that Amalek should be spared. It cost him his kingship, his bloodline, his sanity, and most likely, his eternity.

We think we know so much better than God. We think our morality is superior to God’s. Even today, good, solid Christian leaders on alternative media argue that Christians are so much more righteous than the Muslims because we don’t destroy the alphabet crowd like they do. Yet what is God’s mishpat (his verdict) about such people? What is the penalty prescribed for wilful, intentional sexual sin?

Jer 8:4 Moreover thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD; Shall they fall (naphal – be cast down), and not arise? shall he turn away, and not return?

God is astonished that even after so much evil has befallen Judah, they refuse to get up and return to the Father. Punishments often cause us to turn back from our destructive path, but there can come a time when we are so hardened that no amount of correction will cause us to turn back.

It scares me to see several acquaintances who have experienced personal, as well as corporate sorrow due to the evil unleashed since 2020, who cannot even entertain the possibility that God is trying to desperately get their attention to turn back to him before it’s too late.

Jer 8:5 Why then is this people of Jerusalem slidden back by a perpetual (permanent) backsliding (apostasy, turning away)? they hold fast deceit (fraud, delusion), they refuse to return.

They won’t let go of the deception that they cling to, no matter how much evidence to the contrary.

How utterly tragic. We are observing in real time the strong delusion Paul spoke about in Thessalonians.

Recently we entertained some of our siblings. We hadn’t seen these 2 siblings for 4 years or more, due to the plandemic, and the fact that they are totally in bondage to every lie and delusion that the mainstream media have been flooding the planet with. They know of our stance, and have clearly chosen not to hear. Anyway, one of them was speaking of how he had gotten sick (yet again) with covid, and yet he was thankful that he had gotten the jab, or else he believed he would of been even sicker! The more jabs they take, the more frequent they seem to get sick, yet all they can reason is that they need to be thankful to the thing that is supposed to make them immune from what they are regularly getting in the first place!

Another told us that they had collapsed while on vacation. Tests showed that their carotid artery is plugged between 30-70%. Of course, we know what is forming in her veins. Yet both my spouse and I strongly believed that we were to remain silent during this particular visit, so we did.

We are all facing exceedingly difficult moral dilemmas. Do we speak, or keep silent? On the one hand, as we try to restore fragile lines of communication that were cut off during covid, do we want to permanently drive them away by dumping upon them truths that would seem like insanity to them? On the other hand, how can we not warn those we love? Yet, if the foul deed has been done to their bodies and the damage is already in place, is it truly loving to give them nightmares when there is no way they can turn back the clock?

There is no good answer to these things. It still greatly upsets me when I hear of people say that they are so glad that they live in this most exciting of times in history. As if having to make these impossible decisions is exciting. As if having to hear these first hand accounts of loved ones being poisoned, and they still think that they were (are are still) taking life saving medicine. About how extremely unlikely they are to listen to you when you tell them the truth, no matter what argument you choose to use. About how we have prayed day and night for our families for four years, and yet the vast majority do not of seemed to of caught on to the genocidal extermination one little bit.

I have spent much time talking to the Lord about these things. Yet the thought that came into my mind is how come I never felt the same urgency and sorrow and helplessness about their true spiritual state all these years? Why does it take some physical danger to activate my alarm and frustration over my loved ones condition? Were they not just as unsaved before 2020 as after? Even if they have to die early, doesn’t that pale in comparison to the state of their eternal soul? Why haven’t we had the same urgency over their lostness as we do over their health?

Maybe God is using this physical calamity to truly wake us up to our grave responsibility to fight for the souls of these people like we never have before, especially since so many lives are being drastically cut short.

At this moment in time, hundreds of millions, even billions, are holding fast to their delusions. If we look at it from their point of view, we can see a reason for this. Say you have heard some convincing evidence on the real contents and purpose of the jab. Say you have gone all in, jabbed and boosted to the hilt. Say you were one of the first ones to eagerly rush out and take your children to get jabbed. Now you’re hearing that you have possibly poisoned yourselves and your children! How many people without Christ (and even with Christ, for that matter) would be able to face this awful truth? During world war two, just as many Germans would shut down any conversation of the camps that were operating next door. Most people would rather not know the truth, rather than having to work through the implications of what they have just done to themselves and their loved ones. So you see God doesn’t really have to force a strong delusion on many, most will willingly embrace horrible lies, because the alternative is just too traumatic to contemplate.

Jer 8:6 I hearkened (pricked up the ears) and heard, but they spake not aright (rightly): no man repented (was sorry, regretted his behaviour) him of his wickedness, saying, What have I done? every one turned to his course, as the horse rusheth into the battle.

We see God telling us that he was carefully and eagerly listening to what these wayward and rebellious people would have to say, after he sent his prophets and his initial round of judgments to try and save them. He said no man repented. None. A bit of hyperbole perhaps, but the essential truth nonetheless. Perhaps he even saw the way we, the supposed faithful remnant, reacted to his strong words of rebuke. We may of thought we turned to the Lord, but not according to God’s standard that is found in his holy word.

I remember watching some national day of prayer gathering in Washington, DC, a couple months before the 2020 election. There were some powerful exhortations and prayers given. There were moments that seemed like genuine repentance was taking place amongst the large crowd. It was an all day event. Yet the spirit of the Laodicean church rose up at the end of the day, as a false prophet took the stage and started to prophesy utter nonsense about victory and success, and the deluded sheep, who had been fed a lifetime diet of lies and fantasies by these wolves, started jumping up and down and screaming, as if the battle against end time evil had been won, by their one day of prayer and (feigned) repentance. My spirit immediately sank as I watched this spiritual tragedy unfolding before my eyes. How deluded the church had become! How empty and vain the day had turned out to be! Consistent with our tiny attention spans, our inability to pay any price of discomfort, our insistence that all our pastors continually provide us with easy answers for all our troubles, the entire crowd thought that this one day of prayer was all it was going to take to turn back evil from the land and win the day.

I truly believe that in large part, the horrific way the 2020 election turned out was simply God’s crystal clear response as to what he thought about our idea of what repentance truly was. We had not spoken rightly. We all turned to our own way, our own course of life, singlemindedly unable to hear contrary instructions, even as a war horse cannot be turned from the path once he had committed to charge the enemy in battle.

Jer 8:7 Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment (mishpat) of the LORD.

It’s unbelievable how intentionally blind we are to God’s mishpat – his acts of judgment, though the evidence couldn’t be clearer. Even the dumb animals know their appointed times and seasons, yet God’s appointed time of judgment is a universal mystery and a secret to almost all of his body. This is the fruit of false teaching coming home to roost.

Jer 8:8 How do ye say, We are wise (intelligent), and the law (torah) of the LORD is with us? Lo, certainly in vain (a lie) made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain (a lie).

Unrighteous expounders of the word will twist the truth of God’s commandments and make them into a lie.

The wisdom of man is foolishness before God. How can we say we follow the commandments of God when most don’t even read it? God says that we are living a lie, our teachers write and speak lies. If we were all spiritually sensitive and aware, we would clearly see that God’s judgments have fallen, it is the season for it to be so, so obviously we are not walking in Torah, or the holy law and commandments of Jesus. The sermons we are subjected to are all in vain, because they are a lie.

Let me share a couple of scriptures from the last book of the bible, just so you don’t think I am too locked into ancient history:

Rev 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
Rev 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

I would propose that keeping the commandments of Jesus is somewhat equivalent to keeping Torah for the Jew.

Jer 8:9 The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, they have rejected the word of the LORD; and what wisdom is in them?

Where are all the prosperity preachers now? Does anyone listen to the word of faith, mega church, hundred fold return ministers of deceit anymore? When will even the stupidest sheep finally realize that they have been had?

I was a victim of these false teachers back in the 80’s. I came from a dead catholic background. When I was truly born again at age 20, I became on fire with the reality of Jesus. I eagerly searched for fellowship in many groups. Eventually, I settled into a word of faith church. The pastor had a very charismatic personality. He spoke so forcefully and confidently. It all sounded so wonderful and true. To make a long story short, my personal life ended up in a disastrous place, and it took many years to purge the false doctrines completely out of my soul. There was a heavy price to be paid for sitting under and embracing the lies of the slick, false shepherds.

I implore anyone who may find themselves under this evil, selfish, man-centred gospel – run, run before its too late.

Jer 8:10 Therefore will I give their wives unto others, and their fields to them that shall inherit them (to occupy, to drive out previous occupants): for every one from the least even unto the greatest is given to covetousness (plunder, dishonest gain), from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely (is a liar).

Loss of blessing always follows loss of morality. No one is exempt. Our culture is now experiencing the fruits of abandoning the Judeo-Christian culture that made it function, and most have chosen to lie in order to collect a paycheque. It all starts with the church leaders, and what they claim is the word of the Lord for the day. Note divorce is one such judgment. I don’t think it’s much of a stretch to say that the economy is being manipulated to drive down private home ownership as much as possible.

Let us not forget though, that we should not focus on how corrupt those popular church leaders are, because the verse says that the least of us is viewed as equally corrupt. Sometimes we fall to the temptation to think we’re not so bad, simply by looking to those more evil than ourselves.

Jer 8:11 For they have healed the hurt (ruin, breach) of the daughter of my people slightly (in a trifling manner), saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.

This is a repeat of Jer 6:14. To repeat an entire verse word for word is almost unheard of in the scripture, so God must think this is important. It sounds like what is preached is basically trying to reassure the sheep that all is well, it’s not as it seems, God is about to restore all that the locust has devoured. Don’t you know that all the silver and the gold belongs to God? The cattle on a thousand hills? That the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just? It stands to reason that God is about to usher in the greatest revival ever seen! And more such utter nonsense. The sheep are temporarily calmed and made happy, until they step out the door of the church. With their first breath, the chem trails are still being inhaled, the vaxxed are still shedding all over them, new wars are being created out of thin air to deplete whatever resources are still left in our country, your children are being groomed and coerced to cut off their own body parts. But don’t worry, be happy, all is well, according to the same pastors who took money from the wicked rulers to lock you out of church, then tried every manipulation possible to get you to poison yourself. Sure sounds like an exciting time to be alive, doesn’t it?

Will the true words of God found in the scriptures finally penetrate all that brain fog that the false prophets have been injecting into you long before the shots ever did?

Jer 8:12 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall among them that fall: in the time of their visitation they shall be cast down, saith the LORD.

Reminds me of the evil prosperity preachers, still preaching the same swill years into the plandemic, having no shame, no turning back, just like all our evil politicians, who have committed so deeply into the satanic extermination of mankind, that there is no turning back for them.

It’s hard to overestimate the wickedness of the apostate church. Not only did most embrace the jab, but even now no one wants to speak of it, showing that they have no compassion for the millions whose health, lives, and spiritual walk have been utterly ruined by the great deception of 2020. So maybe you were deceived into taking the jab. Maybe you were deceived in initially supporting it. Well, repent, and repent now. There are so many out there that need someone to cry to. Be open to the leading of the Holy Spirit. If the fearful repent, embrace them. Don’t be smug, lest you too be tempted.

I am reminded of an excellent point a preacher recently made. There were three kinds of people who made the wrong choices during the plandemic. There were the Esaus, who sold their eternal inheritance for a paycheque. These were the ones who knew what they were doing was murderous, yet they were willing to abandon all sense or right and wrong, and engage in wilful murder. The doctors and nurses and teachers fall under this category. God said he hates Esau (Mal 1:3). Or rather, he hates those who think so lightly of their eternal inheritance offered by Jesus if they choose to follow him in spirit and in truth, that they are willing to cast all that aside just so they have a sure source of income for the next two weeks.

The second type is the Judas. These are the traitors, the oath-breakers. All our politicians, media, police, and many of the compromised pastors fall into this category. They know what they are signing up for. They receive power for one hour with the beast. Their fate is certain.

The third are the Peters. He denied the Lord out of momentary fear. He let fear of the moment block out every other consideration. With repentance, Peter was restored. Let us not waste our time on the Esaus and the Judases, but let us eagerly seek out the Peters and offer them hope and restoration back into the fold of the master.

Jer 8:13 I will surely consume them (terminate terminate), saith the LORD: there shall be no grapes on the vine, nor figs on the fig tree, and the leaf shall fade; and the things that I have given them shall pass away from them.

Here is the principle that Jesus spoke of that even what you have will be taken away from you if you are found not worthy. Literally we are seeing the poisoning of our atmosphere permanently contaminate our air, soil, water, plants and animals. Only God can reverse this insanity.

This reminds me of something I heard last night. A very intelligent man claimed that what really terrified him was that he could not really discern what was the ultimate end game of these globalists. When you consider the permanent poisoning of all life forms on this planet, what benefit could the elite possibly hope to gain from this? Is their goal utter destruction of every part of God’s creation, leaving the planet as utterly bare as the moon, and then hope to be uploaded into the cloud where they will live happily ever after? Normally a conqueror only destroys what he has to in order to achieve victory, so he then can enjoy the spoils of war. What spoils are to be left if they continue along this path?

Could this be the price that they are forced to pay, in giving their hearts to satan? Total destruction of all life in exchange for unimaginable wealth and power for a season? Do we yet begin to grasp the totality of the horror that these lunatics are engaged in?

Jer 8:14 Why do we sit still? assemble yourselves, and let us enter into the defenced cities, and let us be silent there: for the LORD our God hath put us to silence (made us dumb, caused us to perish), and given us water of gall (poison, even of serpents) to drink (make o potion of), because we have sinned against the LORD.

Can the truth of these words hit any harder than they do here? Go into your 15 minute cities, and be censored while locked in there. God has silenced the voice of righteousness in the land, through fear and censorship and propaganda. He has caused us to perish off the land. He has given us poisonous venom in potions to drink (inject). Why? Because we have sinned against Yehovah. Curse the cabal all you want, expose the murderous injections by all means, but know this: Until we deal with our sin problem in the body of Christ, there is no escape.

Jer 8:15 We looked for peace (shalom), but no good came; and for a time of health (medicine), and behold trouble (fear)!

To end the imaginary medical emergency, we looked for medicine, instead we were given fear, fear, and nothing but fear. The result was not a return to normal, but everything good that we took for granted in our society is now gone.

Jer 8:16 The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan: the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones (abbeer – angel, strong one); for they are come, and have devoured (consumed) the land, and all that is in it; the city, and those that dwell therein.

Dan was the northernmost part of Israel. They did not have the best reputation, even being left the listing of the 12 tribes in certain portions of scripture. Dan would of been the tribal area the Babylonians would of passed through first on their way to destroy Jerusalem. Thus rumours, tales, and speculation would of infused the Judeans with all sorts of fearful thoughts.

God is allowing the enemy to try and squeeze us all together into confined areas. He is allowing the wicked to steal our land, our resources. Our cities are becoming unlivable, yet people are being consumed with excess death counts like never before.


Jer 8:17 For, behold, I will send serpents (nahash), cockatrices (vipers), among you, which will not be charmed (prayed away), and they shall bite you (strike with a sting), saith the LORD.

Nahash comes from a root word nawkhash, which means to whisper a magic spell, to enchant. How we were put under a spell by the covid madness. I did not listen to the mainstream media, but the occasional sound bytes that were played on alternate media made me wonder how could any human withstand to be assaulted with the level of insane, absolutely false propaganda being vomited out 24/7?

The jab was been proven to contain 35 different kinds of venom, of which 21 of them come from deadly snakes.

Jer 8:18 When I would comfort myself against sorrow, my heart is faint (troubled, sick) in me.

Jeremiah sought some relief from the reality his people faced, but could not find it, because he refused to lie to himself, or accept the lying words of those around him, especially the false prophets.

Jer 8:19 Behold the voice of the cry of the daughter of my people because of them that dwell in a far country: Is not the LORD in Zion? is not her king in her? Why have they provoked me to anger with their graven images, and with strange vanities (foreign, heathen things of emptiness)?

Or, behold the cry of them that are in a distant land. We are far from the promised land of blessing and victory in Christ in the western church today. Where is the king of kings? Why isn’t he rescuing us? Why are so many prayers not being answered? Why is the enemy triumphing over us so completely?

God replies to their question with questions of his own. Why are you provoking me to anger with things that are not of my kingdom, that have absolutely no value at all? What heathen vanities are we guilty of? Do our wants and desires revolve around the size of our pensions, our next vacation, even our children above all other things? When was the last time you seriously and completely put the priorities of the king of kings above all else?

Jer 8:20 The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.

Did the latter rain come and go from 1900 to 1980?

This verse has really been burning in my heart for the last four years.

Jeremiah senses that Judah’s window of opportunity has come and gone, and it breaks his heart. Are we possibly in the same boat as Judah?

So many speak of some mythical end time harvest, yet this time is not called the great tribulation for nothing. It is not called the great ingathering. Is the time of harvest over and all that is left is the time of the final judgment?

I am not saying that this is so, I only put it out there for all to take to the Lord, and get really honest with him. Let us stop believing something because we wish it to be true. God will only show the truth to someone who is truly willing to hear it. He does not waste his time on people who are only pretending to want to hear, who will only hear if they like what is said.

Him who has ears to hear, let him hear.

Jer 8:21 For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt; I am black (with dark coloured mourning garments); astonishment (desolation) hath taken hold on me.
Jer 8:22 Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician (cure, healing) there? why then is not the health (soundness, wholeness) of the daughter of my people recovered?

The chapter ends with Jeremiah’s (and God’s) heart laid bare for all to see. Do you think God enjoys sending evil upon his people? Does it not break his heart when sin has gotten so bad that there is no other remedy?

Do not even the most optimistic of us wonder why things are going so bad, so fast? Why there doesn’t seem to be any victories of significance? Why we seem to be in freefall, and the only question is exactly when we hit bottom?

Welcome to Jeremiah’s world.
