The Book of Jeremiah
Well, we come to the Book of Jeremiah, the last of the major prophets for us to study. Again, what makes Daniel, Isaiah, Ezekiel, and Jeremiah MAJOR prophets? Simply because the books are longer in length than the twelve MINOR prophets. Their prophecies are of no less importance or relevance.
The name “Jeremiah” means “who Yah raises up” and he was chosen by our Father before he was even placed in his mothers’ womb, which means what, exactly? He was one of those souls that stood with our Father during the attempted overthrow by Satan and his angels in the first heaven/earth age.
Therefore, even with freewill, Father knew that He could trust him to do His work, and so He did.
There will be 51 prophesies given throughout this book, all of which are important to us because much of what’s happening today can be found in those prophesies.
Let’s look at the prophets that prophesied simultaneously with Jeremiah: Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Daniel, Joel, Ezekiel, Obadiah, and possibly Haggai, all prophesied for some length of time, AT THE SAME TIME.
Jeremiah, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah began approximately in 518 B.C.; Daniel in 495 B.C.; Joel in 488 B.C.; Ezekiel in 484 B.C.; and Obadiah and Haggai around 482 B.C.
Alright, chapter 1.
Jeremiah 1:1 The words of Jeremiah the son of Hilkiah, of the priests that were in Anathoth in the land of Benjamin:
The father of Jeremiah, Hilkiah, was not the high priest with the same name that was of the line of Eleazar.
Anathoth is a city about three miles northeast of Jerusalem and it was a priest’s town. It was there that Jeremiah was persecuted before he prophesied in Jerusalem.
Jeremiah 1:2 To whom the word of the Lord came in the days of Josiah the son of Amon king of Judah, in the thirteenth year of his reign.
Jeremiah began to prophecy in the days of Josiah and was very young when he did. Some accounts say that he was only twenty-one years of age.
Jeremiah 1:3 It came also in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, unto the end of the eleventh year of Zedekiah the son of Josiah king of Judah, unto the carrying away of Jerusalem captive in the fifth month.
The line of kings during Jeremiahs’ prophesies begins with Josiah, then Jehoiakim, and then Zedekiah. You’ll notice that Jehoahaz and Jehoiachin are not included because they only reigned for three months each.
Jeremiah 1:4 Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
Father begins to speak to Jeremiah, giving him the first prophesy.
Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
Father didn’t just pick Jeremiah from a group of guys standing outside a 7-11 convenience store, waiting for work. He chose him before He breathed his soul into the embryo within his mothers’ womb.
Jeremiah must have stood very tall beside our Father in that first heaven/earth age, when Satan and his cohorts tried to take control of the Mercy Seat and all of heaven. And even with freewill, Father knew that He could trust and depend on him.
Jeremiah 1:6 Then said I, Ah, Lord God! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child.
When Jeremiah first heard the Father speak he was already shying away from whatever it was that Father wanted him to do. How do I know that? Because of the word Ah.
✡ Ah_ OT:162 'ahahh (a-haw'); apparently a primitive word expressing pain exclamatorily; Oh!:
It’s a word that expresses grief or distress and then he follows with an excuse, completely true by the way, that he is like a child, because he is only twenty-one years old.
Jeremiah 1:7 But the Lord said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.
And whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak. Does that sound vaguely familiar to you? It should because it’s written in the book of Mark, chapter 13. The Holy Spirit will put the words into Jeremiahs’ mouth as will happen to those Elect that will be delivered up before the councils of Satan/Antichrist, during the five months of his tribulation.
✡ Mark 13:11 But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost. KJV
Don’t even THINK about speaking words from your own brain and mouth.
Jeremiah 1:8 Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord.
These same words were spoken to Ezekiel when he began to prophesy…
✡ Ezekiel 2:6 And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house. KJV
You know how people can look at you with disdain on their faces, the upper lip curling somewhat in disgust. It’s all about intimidating the one speaking because they don’t want to hear what they have to say.
Jeremiah 1:9 Then the Lord put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the Lord said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth.
Here Father touches Jeremiahs’ mouth with His hand but with Isaiah, a hot coal was used instead:
✡ Isaiah 6:6 Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:
✡ Isaiah 6:7 And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. KJV
The Holy Spirit will now relieve any anxiety that Jeremiah might still have for it will be the Spirit of God that will speak the necessary words.
Jeremiah 1:10 See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.
Notice that the word nations is plural, meaning ALL the nations on earth should listen to the words spoken by Jeremiah. These prophecies are not reserved strictly for Judah but for the entire world.
To root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down. To take the lies and deceptions of religious organizations and expose them for what they are. Tell the people that there will be no rapture, there is no flying-away at any moment.
There is no place called purgatory where venial sins are burnt away, and the soul is cleansed to the point that it can now enter into Paradise.
The words of men coming from the houses of men, when it SHOULD be the Words of our Father from HIS house.
Jeremiah 1:11 Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree.
Here comes the second prophecy.
I see a rod of an almond tree. This word rod is not used to measure, as we saw it’s use in Ezekiel but it’s a shoot off of a tree…
✡ Rod_ OT:4731 maqqel (mak-kale;); or (feminine) maqqelah (mak-kel-aw'); from an unused root meaning apparently to germinate; a shoot, i.e. stick (with leaves on, or for walking, striking, guiding, divining):
Why would Father use an almond tree as opposed to some other fruit tree? Because the almond tree is known as the “wakeful tree”. It “awakes” from the sleep of winter earlier than any other tree, flowering in January, and bearing fruit in March.
Fathers’ Elect should be a wakeful tree during these days and times, to bring forth the truth of His Word early so people can accept it and live it and be prepared for the coming deception of Satan/Antichrist.
This rod could also be looked at as a rod of correction.
Jeremiah 1:12 Then said the Lord unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.
Fathers’ Word will be performed early, and Jeremiah, you’re going to be the one to do it.
Jeremiah 1:13 And the word of the Lord came unto me the second time, saying, What seest thou? And I said, I see a seething pot; and the face thereof is toward the north.
In the vision, Jeremiah is shown a boiling pot.
And the face thereof is toward the north. What is the face of a pot? Does that mean the spout from which the contents are poured? No, it’s the face of the one that the pot REPRESENTS.
Jeremiah 1:14 Then the Lord said unto me, Out of the north an evil shall break forth upon all the inhabitants of the land.
Indeed. The “north” has always been the place of our Father and Satan has always wanted to control the north side. It’s also from where the enemy comes. Remember Ezekiel, chapters 38 and 39, where we found out about “rush”, or “russ”, and then finally, Russia?
Two plus two equals four.
Jeremiah 1:15 For, lo, I will call all the families of the kingdoms of the north, saith the Lord; and they shall come, and they shall set every one his throne at the entering of the gates of Jerusalem, and against all the walls thereof round about, and against all the cities of Judah.
The enemy is coming. Spiritually, it was Nebuchadnezzar, and in actuality, you should watch Jerusalem.
There is great unrest in the Middle East today. Iran is literally poking the United States and her allies in the eye by bombing international trade ships and shooting down a $130 million-dollar drone. Iran is begging us to attack her.
Our Navy is well positioned in the Mediterranean Sea, we have thousands of troops on the ready, hundreds of fighter jets standing by and President Trump has already told the Ayatollah that if war happens, he will obliterate the entire country.
But who gets hurt the most? Israel. Before we are able to bomb Iran back to the Middle Ages, they will attack Israel with everything they’ve got and who’s to say that they DO NOT have a nuclear device ready?
Jeremiah 1:16 And I will utter my judgments against them touching all their wickedness, who have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, and worshipped the works of their own hands.
This is not talking about the armies from the north, this is talking about Judah.
And worshipped the works of their own hands. Grove worshipping. They cut down trees, trimmed off the branches, shaped the end to look like the head of a penis and worshipped it. That sounds pretty vulgar, doesn’t it? Well, Google it and you can see for yourself.
What do we worship today, what do we build with our own hands? Space probes that go out into the universe searching for the beginning of life. It’s called panspermia. Oh, they’ll sell it as looking for a place for humans to live because we will eventually destroy this planet, they’ll look for signs of water and it’s the most expensive piece of nonsense going.
If Father wanted us to live on another planet, or in another galaxy, He would have given us the means of overcoming time, because that’s what will stop any mass exodus into the galaxy.
Lightyears. A lightyear is the distance that light will travel in one year, at a velocity of 186,282 miles per second, which is about 6 trillion miles.
We have done some amazing things, as far as exploring our solar system and beyond, but we will live and die on this planet.
Jeremiah 1:17 Thou therefore gird up thy loins, and arise, and speak unto them all that I command thee: be not dismayed at their faces, lest I confound thee before them.
Stand up, Jeremiah, pull your robe between your legs and tie it with a rope around your waist, and get going, and don’t be deterred by the dirty looks on their faces, or the leering in their eyes, or their shouts and jeers. I’m with you and I’ll protect you.
Lest I confound thee before them. Lest I make you appear to be confounded and confused.
Jeremiah 1:18 For, behold, I have made thee this day a defenced city, and an iron pillar, and brasen walls against the whole land, against the kings of Judah, against the princes thereof, against the priests thereof, and against the people of the land.
I have made you AS a defenced city, strong as an iron pillar and as strong as walls made out of metal.
Jeremiah 1:19 And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail against thee; for I am with thee, saith the Lord, to deliver thee. KJV
They’re not going to like what you say, they like and enjoy the life that they lead, and you will be a thorn in their side by telling them that what they are doing is against the commandments of God. But you be strong, Jeremiah, and I will have your back, I will have your six, no matter what they do or say.
I will get you safely through it, saith the Lord God.
