Jeremiah 6th Chapter:
16 Thus says the Lord: “Stand in the ways and see, And ask for the old paths, where the good way is, And walk in it; Then you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’ 17 Also, I set watchmen over you, saying, ‘Listen to the sound of the trumpet!’ But they said, ‘We will not listen.’
29 The bellows blow fiercely, The lead is consumed by the fire; The smelter refines in vain, For the wicked are not drawn off. 30 People will call them rejected silver, Because the Lord has rejected them.”
A silver that is rejected by the smelter is called the rejected silver. He sits near by it and refines it well like other metals, but this bunch of metal is not getting purified. Then the smelter rejects it because there is no use for it nor he does not waste his time.
Like this God rejecting many people from his fold because they are constantly refuse to hear Him nor walk in His ways. These rebellious people walk in their own desire of their heart. Wherever their heart desire leads them, that they pursue it. When God sets a watchman and blows the warning sound, they do not hear. They like their own ways and they are oblivious to the impending danger. Their ears only like the message of peace and comfort, but they do not like the message of a doctor who needs to operate on the wound to restore the soul. If only they knew that their soul is suffering, then they might listen to Him. But the ruler of the world blinded their eyes to see the sickness of their soul. My people are perishing cries the Lord. But that cry is ignored by many. So God classified them as rejected silver, after multiple attempt to refine them. They simply do not want to be healed and they like the medicine of the world and happy to live like that.
So dear brothers and sisters we don’t want to be in this lot of rejected silver. Let us stand in the way and see; inquire about the old paths, in which choose the path that leads to life, truth, and healing. That way is in Jesus. Those who are walking in this way will find rest and healing for their souls. They will be called the treasures of God.
Do you know how to walk in this Way? If not, seek it in the word of God and ask Him to open your eyes to show the dross in you, and the Holy Spirit will convict you. You will be sanctified when you confess and ask for forgiveness. When there is time, repent and change your ways. The days are evil and it is not going to get any better. This the hard truth, but most of us thinks happy times are ahead. It may help you psychologically but it will not do any good for your soul. So repent and walk in the right way. If you think Jesus is not the only way, then you are free to choose any way in your life. If you find rest for your souls and measure that the path you chose is the right path, then you can stay on. One’s own measure will be measured back him.
So repent and walk in the right path in Christ Jesus. He will give you rest for the weary and weak. Amen.
Mat 11:28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
