Just as it was in the days of Jeremiah, today the warnings of God’s messengers and prophets are being met with ridicule, indifference, and rebellion against God Himself. This is “never a shock or a surprise” to the Master of all that is and was and is to come, but a spiritual reality that God has already made provision for from the beginning of time.

His Watchmen Have Been Sent

Though the prophet Jeremiah would not be able to stop the imminent invasion that God had determined to bring upon them from their powerful northern neighbors, he would be able to deliver a message declaring the Justice of His Judgements. –Judgments that the prideful and arrogant believer still feels they can question to this day.

Even in the face of the mass scale escalation and destruction that is coming to us now –God is still ‘just and faithful’ and will never act with sending a warning ⚠️ and even final opportunities for hearts to come clean, even when He knows they will not be received. Like Judah, the great majority of God’s people today will still reject His great chastening and will earn their final sentence which has been written with a pen of iron.

The Cry and Declaration of the Prophet
Declare in Judah and proclaim in Jerusalem, and say: “Blow the trumpet in the land; Cry, ‘Gather together,’ And say, ‘Assemble yourselves, And let us go into the fortified cities.’6 Set up the standard toward Zion. Take refuge! Do not delay! For I will bring disaster from the north, And great destruction.”7 The lion has come up from his thicket, And the destroyer of nations is on his way.

Surely You have greatly deceived this people and Jerusalem, Saying, ‘You shall have peace,’ Whereas the sword reaches to the heart.”11 At that time it will be said To this people and to Jerusalem, “A dry wind of the desolate heights blows in the wilderness Toward the daughter of My people– Not to fan or to cleanse–12 A wind too strong for these will come for Me; Now I will also speak judgment against them.”13 “Behold, he shall come up like clouds, And his chariots like a whirlwind. His horses are swifter than eagles. Woe to us, for we are plundered!”14 O Jerusalem, wash your heart from wickedness, That you may be saved. How long shall your evil thoughts lodge within you?15 For a voice declares from Dan And proclaims affliction from Mount Ephraim:16 “Make mention to the nations, Yes, proclaim against Jerusalem, That watchers come from a far country And raise their voice against the cities of Judah.17 Like keepers of a field they are against her all around, Because she has been rebellious against Me,” says the Lord.18 “Your ways and your doings Have procured these things for you.
