Jeremiah 12:5 (b) A remarkable picture which illustrates the conditions of religious professors. If these worldly religionists are made weary by the feeble Christian influences around them here, what will they do when they are really in the presence of the Lord?

"Footmen" represent Christians in this world who have a feeble, halting walk and yet live very much better lives than the ungodly. "Horses" refer to fully developed Christians who live wholly for the Lord.

Christians on earth are the "footmen" and Christians in Heaven are the "horses." If these empty professors cannot endure the presence and the ministry of the Christians who surround them, then how would they ever endure being with GOD, with CHRIST, and with fully developed Christians? (See under "JORDAN").

Judges 1:3 (a) This describes the attitude that believers should take toward unbelievers in regard to the ministry and propagation of the Word of GOD. Believers should stand actively, boldly, and constantly for the "faith of our fathers."
