Jeremiah has been called to warn the people of Israel. When you read Jeremiah, if you substitute the United States for Israel, you will realize that the Book of Jeremiah is not just historical, but extremely and divinely prophetic. Jeremiah, except for certain verses is rarely taught on today and yet, with the state of the United States as a Nation, we NEED, we MUST take the words of Jeremiah to heart!
One thing is certain about God Almighty, He is patient, gracious and merciful BUT He is absolutely JUST in His Character. When God says He is going to do something, He WILL accomplish it. History, if nothing else has taught us this fact. When God says that judgement will come upon a people who have rejected Him and His ways, judgement will undoubtedly come. In God’s eyes, when a Nation claims to belong to Him, He will NOT put up with evil. Evil to the Lord is rejecting Him and His ways and worshipping other things that have replaced Him as God. Idols are anything that you create; Israel created them with their hands, but in America, what idols have we created not just with our hands, but in our hearts?!
