A Twisted Crown of Thorns ®

Reformed. Christianity. Evangelism. Modern Culture.

This year I will become a millionaire! It’s in the Bible! Look!

I will tell you how I used to spend the last day of each year. Yup, we would spend it in church quoting Jeremiah 29:11. We would affirm: “This new year I will be prosperous! This is my year of divine destiny! This is my year of health, wealth and prosperity!”

But Voddie Baucham in this clip explains something very important. How I wish I had come across such teaching on exegesis and rightly understanding scripture in context.

Jeremiah 29:11 is just one of many mis quoted verses. Yup, it is shamefully abused. If  it wasn’t for the grace of God I would still be mis quoting and mis applying it too.
