233 - The promised Messiah

Kathleen's thoughts

Jeremiah 32: 6-44, 33: 1-26, 34: 1-1-7, 38: 1-13.

Jeremiah buys a field God told Jeremiah to purchase his cousins field. He did this with a written contract of the purchase which was sealed and put into a earthen storage jar which will last for a long time. The witness to this was "And gave the purchase agreement to Baruch in the sight of my cousin Hanamel, the witnesses who were signing the purchase agreement, and all the Judeans sitting in the guards courtyard. This is what the Lord of Hosts, the God of Israel says; Houses, fields and vineyards will again be bought in this land.

Jeremiah's prayer 
The Lord's answer

The Lord's promise Now therefore, this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says to this city about which you said; It has been handed over to Babylon's king through sword, famine, and plague; I am about to gather them from all the lands where I have banished them in My wrath, rage, and great fury, and I will return them to this place and make them live in safety. They will be My people, and I will be their God. I will give them one heart and one way so that for their good and for the good of their descendants after them, they will fear Me always.

The restoration of the Jews While he was still confined in the guards courtyard, the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah a second time. The Lord who made the earth, the Lord who forms it to establish it, the Lord is His name, says this.
Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and wondrous things you do not know.

The promised Messiah Look, the days are coming - this is the Lord's declaration - "when I will fulfill the good promises that I have spoken concerning the house of Israel and the house of Judah. In those days and at that time I will cause a Branch of righteousness to sprout up for David, and He will administer justice and righteousness in the land. In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will dwell securely. This is what she will be named; The Lord is Our Righteousness.
the Levitical priests will never fail to have a man always before Me to offer burnt offerings to burn grain offerings and to make sacrifices;

The hosts of heaven cannot be counted; the sand of the sea cannot be measured. So too, I will make the descendants of My servant David and the Levites who minister to Me innumerable.

A message for Zedekiah Zedekiah comes face to face with the king of Babylon.
God also says that he will die peacefully.

Jeremiah in the well Because of the prophesy that was spoken against the king the warriors said that Jeremiah ought to die so king Zedekiah here he is He's in your hands since the king can't do anything against you. So they took Jeremiah and dropped him into the cistern of Malchiah the king's son, which was in the guards courtyard, lowering Jeremiah with rope's. There was no water in the cistern, only mud, and Jeremiah sank in the mud.
So Ebedmelech a Cushite court official who was employed in the king's palace heard that Jeremiah was put into the cistern went to King Zedekiah and told him his men have done evil to the prophet,
So the king commanded Ebedmelech, to take 30 men and under his authority to pull Jeremiah the prophet up from the cistern before he dies. This he did and Jeremiah continued to stay in the guards courtyard.

Consider it a great joy, my brothers whenever you experience various trials knowing that hte testing foyer faith produces endurance. But endurance must do its complete work, so that you may be mature and complete lacking nothing. James 1: 2-4
