The message of Jeremiah

  • Idolatry and disloyalty to God invite punishment

  • Yet the people would not finally be outcast from the grace of God

  • Exile as a discipline would be remedial

    • The State was doomed

    • The Temple would be destroyed

    • Personal faith in God was the key


JEREMIAH 23:1-8


JEREMIAH’S MESSAGE

  • True shepherds bring together, lead, and cherish their flock.

  • Judah’s Kings were doing the reverse. They were destroying, scattering and generally failing to care.


JEREMIAH’S MESSAGE

  • Conduct has consequences (v. 2).

  • These Kings, who had abused the trust bestowed upon them, would be punished for their evil.


JEREMIAH’S MESSAGE

  • True security is to be found in relationship with God (verses 3-4).

  • Just as God rescued His people from Egypt, so too will God rescue His people from exile.


JEREMIAH’S MESSAGE

  • “I myself will gather the remnant of my flock out of all the countries where I have driven them ….”


JEREMIAH’S MESSAGE

  • “The days are coming … when I will raise up a descendant of King David … who will reign wisely … and do what is right in the land … and whose name will be indicative of his nature … the Lord Our Righteousness.”


JEREMIAH’S MESSAGE

The different layers foreshadow the Kingdom

which … (then) … was to come

which … (now) … has come

  • God will raise up a King, Jesus

  • He will reign, wisely

  • If we live under His rule, we will be secure

  • We do not deserve to live in His Kingdom, but by grace he has made it possible.


JEREMIAH: APPLICATION

  • Where may true security be found?

  • How can I support the Create leaders?

  • Is God perhaps calling me to be a leader?


JEREMIAH 23:1-8

  • A righteous “branch”

    “The days are coming … when I will raise up from David’s line a righteous Branch, a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land. … This is the name by which he will be called: The Lord Our Righteousness.”
