Jeremiah Sees Spiritual Restoration Under the Messiah

“God says that the new kingdom will last forever, that a son of David will always be on Israel’s throne, that Israel will enjoy continuous peace, and that sin will never again separate Israel from God.

All of this will cause great confusion to future generations of Hebrews who read the restoration promises of Jeremiah, Isaiah, and the other prophets, yet continue to see a hostile world about them.  Many of them will keep vigil for the coming of a political Israel which will truly have lasting peace and prosperity.  Many will look for a country whose geographical boundaries are clearly delineated and secure.  Yet Jeremiah suggests that their attitude toward the coming kingdom is misguided.”
