Jeremiah’s Prophecies During Siege

“With Nebuchadnezzar;s army just outside the walls, Zedekiah realizes that it is time to consult God.  But the answer from Jeremiah is to surrender or be destroyed.”

Read:  Jeremiah 21, 22:1-9

“Zedekiah chooses not to surrender, and the siege continues,  All but a few of the other fortified cities in Judah have been taken when God sends Jeremiah to Zedekiah with a message about Zedekiah’s personal future.”

Read:  Jeremiah 34:1-7

“Zedekiah is angered and places Jeremiah under house arrest.  it is during his own confinement in the royal palace, and Jerusalem’s confinement as well, that Jeremiah goes to great lengths to reassure the people of Jerusalem that, after the city’s fall and an appropriate time of national penitence, both Jerusalem and all of Israel will be restored.  So that there is no mistake about it, God reveals the good news through Jeremiah not once but twice.”

The Great Deportation

“Upon the death of his father, eighteen-year-old Jehoiachin ascends the throne of Judah, but he reigns for only three months.  Nebuchadnezzar is not about to allow a second king of Judah to defy him, so he comes to lead the new king away as a captive.

Jehoiachin’s fate is linked to the fate of thousands of God’s people.  There have been many deportations already, and more will follow, but this is to be by far the greatest deportation of them all.  Significant among the royal and priestly captives is a man by the name of Ezekiel, who will soon be called by God to be a prophet among his fellow captives in Babylonia.”

Reign of Zedekiah

“With the great deportation under way and young King Jehoiachin being taken to Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar sets up Jehoiachin’s uncle Mattaniah to be a puppet king.  Nebuchadnezzar calls Mattaniah by the name of Zedekiah, and that is how he will be remembered throughout history.  The 11 years of his reign will come to a disastrous end with the fall of Jerusalem.”

Jehoiakim’s Last Years

“Jehoiakim must have a death wish.  He has callously burned God’s written Word, and now, with the strength of a mouse pursuing a lion, Jehoiakim has the audacity to rebel against Nebuchadnezzar.  Fortunately for Judah, Nebuchadnezzar does not react with immediate military force, at least not directly.  However, he may well be the motivating force behind the attacks against Judah by several of its neighbors over a four-year period of inconclusive war.”

Read:  2 Kings 24:1-4

“Perhaps it is during these years of conflict with old enemies of Judah that Jeremiah brings the following judgments against those enemies.”

Read: Jeremiah 48, 49

“But Jehoiakim will not live to see vengeance brought on his enemies.”

Assyria Falls and Babylonia Emerges

“Already the prophecies about the nations are coming true.  There is foreign unrest everywhere.  Just as Jeremiah was beginning his ministry, Nabopolassar rebelled against Assyria and established the Babylonian Empire.  Now the time has come for the prophecies regarding Nineveh’s fall to be fulfilled. 

The incidental result for Judah is loss of its good king Josiah.  Here now is the record of Josiah’s untimely death and of the brief reign of his son Jehoahaz before being replaced by his brother Eliakim, whom the pharaoh Necho calls Jehoiakim.”

Read:  2 Kings 23:29-37, 2 Chronicles 35:20-25, 2 Chronicles 36:1-5, Jeremiah 22:10-17

Jeremiah Faces Charges

“Now that Josiah’s good influence is gone and his sons have once again let Judah become corrupt, Jeremiah is in more jeopardy than he might otherwise have been.  He is reminded of this by a confrontation in which he barely escapes with his life.”
