SPEAKING TRUTH can be dangerous. The last days of Judah’s independence before the destruction of the Temple by Nebuchadnezzar are chronicled in this week’s study of the book of Jeremiah.
We discuss the message given to the prophet by God and what happened as a result. It’s a reminder that preaching the actual Word of God is not a path to popularity and prosperity.
THE PROPHETS didn’t have easy lives. Today’s study follows Jeremiah through the last years of the kingdom of Judah, and the message God gave the prophet wasn’t popular.
Because of his warnings of the imminent invasion by Babylon, Jeremiah was mocked and threatened with death even after Nebuchadnezzar had carried off the king of Judah and most of the country’s ruling elites! We discuss parallels with our day, messianic prophecies within Jeremiah’s warnings, and subtle references to Mount Hermon and enemies from the north, which were probably meant to indicate supernatural foes as well as the invaders from Babylon.
