Jeremiah 8:22 (b) This ointment is a figure of GOD's mercy and loving kindness toward His people. His precious promises are all sweet provisions to heal every hurt of the heart of His people. The words of GOD which bring comfort and hope are for mending the wounds which sin and Satan make.
Jeremiah 46:11 (a) Here we understand that there will come a time when GOD's healing ointment of His Word will not avail to mend the wounds of those who deliberately turn away from GOD.
Jeremiah 51:8 (a) We understand by this that GOD does have healing remedies even for His enemies, though they do not want His lovely provision for the needs of their hearts.
