Jeremiah 33* The restoration of the Jews. (1-13) The Messiah promised;happiness of his times. (14-26)1-13 Those who expect to receive comforts from God, must callupon him. Promises are given, not to do away, but to quicken andencourage prayer. These promises lead us to the gospel ofChrist; and in that God has revealed truth to direct us, andpeace to make us easy. All who by sanctifying grace are cleansedfrom the filth of sin, by pardoning mercy are freed from theguilt. When sinners are thus justified, washed, and sanctifiedin the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Holy Spirit, they areenabled to walk before God in peace and purity. Many are led toperceive the real difference between the people of God and theworld around them, and to fear the Divine wrath. It is promisedthat the people who were long in sorrow, shall again be filledwith joy. Where the Lord gives righteousness and peace, he willgive all needful supplies for temporal wants; and all we havewill be comforts, as sanctified by the word and by prayer. 14-26 To crown the blessings God has in store, here is apromise of the Messiah. He imparts righteousness to his church,for he is made of God to us righteousness; and believers aremade the righteousness of God in him. Christ is our Lord God,our righteousness, our sanctification, and our redemption. Hiskingdom is an everlasting kingdom. But in this world prosperityand adversity succeed each other, as light and darkness, day andnight. The covenant of priesthood shall be secured. And all truebelievers are a holy priesthood, a royal priesthood, they offerup spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God; themselves, in thefirst place, as living sacrifices. The promises of that covenantshall have full accomplishment in the gospel Israel. In #Ga6:16|, all that walk according to the gospel rule, are made tobe the Israel of God, on whom shall be peace and mercy. Let usnot despise the families which were of old the chosen people ofGod, though for a time they seem to be cast off.
