Jer 36:5 And Jeremiah commanded Baruch, saying, I am shut up; I cannot go into the house of the LORD:
Jeremiah was prevented from going to church. It wasn't that he was in prison, for he was not at this time. But something providentially hindered him from church. He could have been unclean in some fashion, or, the king commanded him not to be there. But believe me, he desired to be there and his heart was there.
We say, "See you at church, the good Lord willing and the Creek don't rise."
"Creek" by the way, refers to an Indian tribe, which, if they did rise (cause a stir), travelers were prevented from passing through their territory.
Thing is, the good Lord is willing that we get our sorry carcasses out of bed and get down to the house of the Lord for services. And I have another clue for you, there probably ain't no Creek gonna rise where you live!
So quit forsaking the assembly, making lame excuses, and get to church for prayer meeting, Sunday school and worship!
