Tag Archive: Jeremiah 15

“God’s response is that the nation is condemned for its corporate sins.  Judgment against the nation of Judah has been accruing for many years, particularly since Manasseh reintroduced idolatry.  Moreover, God knows that many people who have sincerely turned to him for a time will later backslide and turn away.  God’s compassion at this time in history is cautious.

Because of this, Jeremiah finds it necessary not only to rebuke the wicked but also to tell believers that even their prayers may not be answered positively.  Jeremiah is obviously exasperated by the weight of it all.”

Read:  Jeremiah 15:10-21

“At the very time he is most discouraged, Jeremiah is instructed that more sacrifice is in store.  He is not to marry, attend funerals, or join in festive celebrations.”

“To Jeremiah’s credit, he rises to the 0occasion and subordinates his personal feelings.  Of course, Jeremiah’s persevering character was known to God, and that may be why God called him to this demanding ministry.  So it is that Jeremiah resumes his ministry and brings God’s message to his people.”

“How often Jeremiah longs for his mission to conclude!  The cynics and scoffers mock him by asking when all this wrath is going to happen.  It is probably such taunting that prompts the following prayer form Jeremiah.”

“When Jeremiah prophesies about Judah’s impending peril, the people turn to other prophets.  After all, in an age of prophets, with many speaking in God’s name and many claiming to know his will, it is not that easy to distinguish the true from the false.  The people, therefore, search for a message more favorable and comforting than that of Jeremiah.  Jeremiah puts the question to God and receives a clear response.”

Read:  Jeremiah 14:13-18

“Surely there are righteous individuals left in this sinful nation who are still trying to do God’s will, and praying fervently for God to refrain from bringing judgment against Judah.  Why, they ask, must they be punished at a time of righteous renewal?  Jeremiah frames the issue in the form of a prayer, and receives what appears to be a harsh answer.”
