v.4- How we Listen
He knows your Location (of where you are)
Because of HIS Love. Even in captivity, God proves His love for us!

Don’t have a short timer’s attitude
Plant Gardens and eat their fruit

V. 8 -9 False Prophets – There are some that are intentionally lying and spreading false doctrines and then there some that simply want good, so they enfold the good they want and say its from God. The Lord calls it a vain imagination. The intentions may be right or even sincere, but they are wrong. We can know the difference by staying close to God.
Discernment – Is not the difference between right and wrong but the difference between right & almost right.
Delusional – to know right from wrong and still choose wrong.
Truth – Objective Truth & Relative Truth (My truth, your truth)
Psalms 11:3 – If the Foundations be destroyed what can the righteous do?
V10-11 – Key Text
v.12- Don’t lose yourself while you are in the mist of the Location!
You’re going into captivity but do what you know to do.
The Israelites had ways that they used to build; to plant, ect.
*Remember the offerings, remember the things I’ve set before you.
*Israel Prospered Under Pressure in the place that God Had prophesied that they would be, and that place was captivity. No matter the pressure, you must remember the promise God has given you.
Today’s Pressure requires a true commitment to God!
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized room or tube. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a well-established treatment for decompression sickness, a hazard of scuba diving. Other conditions treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy include serious infections, bubbles of air in your blood vessels, and wounds that won’t heal as a result of diabetes or radiation injury.
In a hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber, the air pressure is increased to three times higher than normal air pressure. Under these conditions, your lungs can gather more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure.
Your blood carries this oxygen throughout your body. This helps fight bacteria and stimulate the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing.
