Jeremiah 25 Part 1
§ Jeremiah 25 is an earthshaking chapter
What happened in the fourth year of Jehoiakim? (Jer 25:1)
Where in the Bible is that found?
§ Did Jeremiah speak to ALL the people of Judah? (Jer 25:2)
From the 13th year of Josiah ® the 23rd year (Jer 25:3)
How do you reconcile this arithmetic?
Did anyone hearken, or believe him? Why not?
§ Whom did the Lord send? (Jer 25:4)
There were six recorded who prophesied the destruction of Jerusalem by Babylon.
§ What did the prophets say? (Jer 25:5, Isa 55:6-7, Jer 4:1, 7:3-7, 35:15)
Every one? Was that required?
Why would God be angry with Judah and not with the heathen? (Jer 25:6)
Why does God use these words: “Provoke me to anger”? (Jer 25:6-7)
§ Because ye have not heard my words. What words? (Jer 25;8)
Behold, I will send and take all the families of the North (Jer 25:9)
What have “families” to do with this warfare?
Is the peace of God conditional?
What is God’s intent with the message of verses 5-9?
Who is going to get hurt? (Prov 8:36)
§ Why is Nebuchadnezzar called “My servant”? (Jer 25:9)
Because ye have not heard my words, I will destroy this land, and all these nations round about.
What is God’s logic for doing that?
