  • The LORD says, The time is coming when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and with the people of Judah. It will not be like the old covenant that I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand and led them out of Egypt. Although I was like a husband to them, they did not keep that covenant. The new covenant that I will make with the people of Israel will be this: I will put my law within them and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. None of them will have to teach a neighbor to know the LORD, because all will know me, from the least to the greatest. (Jeremiah 31:31-34 GN)

  • What accusation did your ancestors brings against me? What made them turn away from me? They worshiped worthless idols and became worthless themselves. They did not care about me. (Jeremiah 2:5,6 GN)

  • You have brought this on yourself by abandoning the LORD your God when he led you on his wayYour own wickedness will correct you, and your unfaithful ways will punish you. You should know and see how evil and bitter it is for you if you abandon the LORD your God... (Jeremiah 2:17-19 GN)

  • Judah, you have brought this on yourself by the way you have lived and by the things you have done. Your sin has caused this suffering; it has stabbed you through the heart. (Jeremiah 4:18 GN)*
  • Slide 14
  • We are not to regard God as waiting to punish the sinner for his sin. The sinner brings the punishment upon himself. His own actions start a train of circumstances that bring the sure result. Every act of transgression reacts upon the sinner, works in him a change of character, and makes it more easy for him to transgress again. By choosing to sin, men separate themselves from God, cut themselves off from the channel of blessing, and the sure result is ruin and death. Letter 96, 1896

  • I will fight against you with all my might, my anger, my wrath, and my fury. I will kill everyone living in this city; people and animals alike will die of a terrible disease. Anyone who stays in the city will be killed in war or by starvation or disease. But those who go out and surrender to the Babylonians, who are now attacking the city, will not be killed; they will at least escape with their life. I have made up my mind not to spare this city, but to destroy it. It will be given over to the king of Babylonia, and he will burn it to the ground. I, the LORD, have spoken. (Jeremiah 21:5,6,9-10 GN)

  • Listen to what I, the LORD, am saying. See that justice is done every day. Protect the person who is being cheated from the one who is cheating him. If you dont, the evil you are doing will make my anger burn like a fire that cannot be put out. You, Jerusalem, are sitting high above the valleys, like a rock rising above the plain. But I will fight against you. You say that no one can attack you or break through your defenses. But I will punish you for what you have done.

(Lamentations 2:1 GN) Why have you abandoned us so long? Will you ever remember us again? Bring us back to you, LORD! Bring us back! Restore our ancient glory. Or have you rejected us forever? Is there no limit to your anger? (Lamentation 5:20-22 GN)

  • LORD, you understand. Remember me and help me. Let me have revenge on those who persecute me. Do not be so patient with them that they succeed in killing me. (Jeremiah 15:15 GN)
  • Slide 27
  • Then the people said, Lets do something about Jeremiah! There will always be priests to instruct us, the wise to give us counsel, and prophets to proclaim Gods message. Lets bring charges against him and stop listening to what he says. So I prayed, LORD, hear what I am saying and listen to what my enemies are saying about me. Is evil the payment for good? Yet they have dug a pit for me to fall in. (Jeremiah 18:18-20 GN)
  • Slide 28
  • Curse the day I was born! Forget the day my mother gave me birth! Curse the one who made my father glad by bringing him the news, Its a boy! You have a son! May he be like those cities that the LORD destroyed without mercy. May he hear cries of pain in the morning and the battle alarm at noon, for not killing me before I was born. Then my mothers womb would have been my grave. Why was I born? Was it only to have trouble and sorrow, to end my life in disgrace? (Jeremiah 20:14-18 GN)

  • Slide 32
  • The commanding officer took me aside and said, The LORD your God threatened this land with destruction, and now he has done what he said he would. All this happened because your people sinned against the LORD and disobeyed him. Now, I am taking the chains off your wrists and setting you free. If you want to go to Babylonia with me, you may do so, and I will take care of you. But if you dont want to go, you dont have to.

  • Slide 35
  • I will pray to the LORD our God, just as you have asked, and whatever he says, I will tell you. I will not keep back anything from you.

Whether it pleases us or not, we will obey the LORD our God, to whom we are asking you to pray. All will go well with us if we obey him. (Jeremiah 42:1-6 GN)

I said to them, The LORD, the God of Israel, to whom you sent me with your request has said, 'If you are willing to go on living in this land, then I will build you up and not tear you down; I will plant you and not pull you up. The destruction I brought on you has caused me great sorrow. Stop being afraid of the king of Babylonia. I am with you, and I will rescue you from his power.
