Jeremiah

By Scott Brown, 2017/08/03

Jeremiah, “the weeping prophet,” was one of the greatest (and most “unsuccessful”) prophets who crossed the pages of Scripture. He was arrested, thrown into prison, slapped in public, his writings were burned, and he almost drowned in muck and mud at the bottom of a well. No one listened to him. God commanded him to stay unmarried (16:2). He was alone in life without a companion, he was despised, and was seemingly friendless. Jeremiah sees Nebuchadnezzar’s army at the gates of Jerusalem as God’s vengeance comes down. Jeremiah weeps. He was despised and yet he did not take back one word or compromise his message.
