1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, after that Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard had let him go from Ramah,

 when he had taken him being bound in chains among all that were carried away captive of Jerusalem and Judah, which were

 carried away captive unto Babylon.

2 And the captain of the guard took Jeremiah, and said unto him, The Lord thy God hath pronounced this evil upon this place.

3 Now the Lord hath brought it, and done according as he hath said: because ye have sinned against the Lord, and have not obeyed

 his voice, therefore this thing is come upon you.

4 And now, behold, I loose thee this day from the chains which were upon thine hand. If it seem good unto thee to come with me

 into Babylon, come; and I will look well unto thee: but if it seem ill unto thee to come with me into Babylon, forbear: behold, all

 the land is before thee: whither it seemeth good and convenient for thee to go, thither go.

5 Now while he was not yet gone back, he said, Go back also to Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son of Shaphan, whom the king of

the guard gave him victuals and a reward, and let him go.

- Jeremiah 40:1-5 KJV

  Jeremiah’s Prophecies 

“A Call to Faithfulness and Hope”


January 25, 2024


Reverend Danny Rhoades

Good day Brothers and Sisters. Today my Daily Devotional is going to be about the Jeremiah's Prophecies to the Remnant.

Jeremiah, was one of the major prophets of the Old Testament, played a crucial role in delivering prophecies to the remnant of Israel during a time of great turmoil and uncertainty. In this devotional, we will delve into the prophecies of Jeremiah from chapters 40 to 45, along with references from 2 Kings 25:22-26 and Isaiah 1:9. These prophecies focus on various aspects, including Jeremiah's role in the liberation of the remnant, the significance of the regathering of the Jews, the revelation of a plot against 


the remnant, and the profound implications of these prophecies for both the remnant of Jeremiah's time and for us today. Let us explore the depths of these prophecies and uncover their profound messages of hope, restoration, and lessons for the remnant and beyond.

Jeremiah, known as the "weeping prophet," lived during a tumultuous period in ancient Israel's history. He prophesied during the final years leading up to the destruction of Jerusalem and the Babylonian exile. His prophecies were directed primarily to the remnant, a small group of faithful Jews who would survive the impending disaster.

Jeremiah's prophecies to the remnant served as a message of hope and encouragement amidst the impending doom. They reassured the remnant of God's faithfulness and promised a future restoration. These prophecies provided guidance, comfort, and a vision for the remnant's role in the rebuilding of Jerusalem and the restoration of the nation.

Jeremiah's journey as a prophet began with a divine call from God. Reluctant at first, he eventually embraced his role and fearlessly delivered God's messages to the people. His prophetic voice became instrumental in liberating the remnant, inspiring them to stand firm in their faith and trust in God's promises.

Amidst the despair and destruction, Jeremiah's prophecies offered a glimmer of hope. He assured the remnant that God would not abandon them forever and would eventually restore their fortunes. Jeremiah's messages painted a vision of a renewed Jerusalem, a rebuilt temple, and a reconciled relationship between God and His people.

Jeremiah's role extended beyond his prophetic words. He actively demonstrated his unwavering faith in God's promises through his actions. Jeremiah boldly confronted the corrupt leaders of Israel, challenged the false prophets, and even purchased a piece of land as a sign of his belief in the future restoration. His unwavering commitment to the remnant's liberation inspired others to join the cause.

The regathering of the Jews holds profound historical significance. Following the Babylonian conquest and the subsequent exile, the Jewish people were scattered throughout various regions, known as the Jewish Diaspora. The regathering refers to the return of the dispersed Jews to their homeland, marking the end of exile and the beginning of a new chapter in Jewish history.

Jeremiah, along with other prophets like Isaiah, foretold the regathering of the Jews. These prophecies served as a source of hope during the darkest times of exile. They spoke of God's plan to gather His people from all corners of the earth, reuniting them as a nation in their homeland. These prophecies became a beacon of hope for the remnant, fueling their dreams of restoration.

The regathering of the Jews took place in multiple stages throughout history. The first significant wave occurred after the Babylonian exile when a remnant returned to Jerusalem under the leadership of Ezra and Nehemiah. However, the ultimate fulfillment of these prophecies came centuries later when, in 1948, the State of Israel was established, marking the mass return of Jews from all corners of the world to their ancestral land.

Jeremiah encountered numerous adversaries who sought to undermine his efforts to liberate the remnant. These included corrupt officials, false prophets, and foreign powers with vested interests in maintaining control over Judah. Identifying these actors was crucial in understanding the challenges the remnant faced in their journey towards restoration.

The motives behind the plot against the remnant were complex. The corrupt officials sought to maintain their power and control over the people, while the false prophets deceived the nation with promises of security and prosperity. Foreign powers aimed to exploit the weakened state of Judah for their own strategic interests. Uncovering these motives shed light on the underlying forces working against the remnant's liberation.

Jeremiah, with his prophetic insight, recognized the plot against the remnant and tirelessly warned the people. He spoke out against the corrupt leaders, exposed the lies of the false prophets, and urged the remnant to remain steadfast in their faith. Jeremiah's unwavering commitment to the truth and his courageous actions in confronting the plot were instrumental in protecting the remnant and guiding them towards their promised restoration.

When Jeremiah delivered his prophecies to the remnant, their response was mixed, to say the least. Some scoffed and dismissed his words as mere ramblings of a deluded man, while others took his warnings to heart and repented. The remnant faced a crucial decision: whether to heed the prophet's message or ignore it at their own peril.

In their skepticism, some may have questioned Jeremiah's credibility or even his sanity. After all, it is not easy to accept harsh truths when they contradict one's own desires and beliefs. However, those who chose to listen and act on Jeremiah's prophecies were given an opportunity to find hope amidst the impending destruction.

The prophecies of Jeremiah hold valuable lessons and applications for the modern reader. While we may not be facing the same circumstances as the remnant in Jeremiah's time, the underlying principles remain relevant.

Firstly, Jeremiah's prophecies remind us of the importance of heeding warnings and not dismissing them lightly. It is easy to fall into the trap of complacency or denial when confronted with uncomfortable truths, but history has shown that ignoring warning signs can have dire consequences.

Secondly, Jeremiah's prophecies teach us the power of repentance and the possibility of redemption. Even in the face of impending doom, the remnant had the opportunity to turn away from their sinful ways and seek reconciliation with God. This serves as a reminder that it is never too late to change course and find redemption in our own lives.

Lastly, the prophecies of Jeremiah highlight the enduring nature of hope. Despite the bleak outlook presented, there was always a glimmer of hope for the remnant. This serves as a reminder that even in the darkest of times, hope can provide the strength and motivation to persevere.

In conclusion, Jeremiah's prophecies had a profound impact on the remnant, shaping their response and ultimately their fate. The lessons and applications derived from these prophecies hold relevance for the modern reader, reminding us of the importance of heeding warnings, embracing repentance, and clinging to hope in the face of adversity. So let us take a moment to reflect on the profound wisdom contained in these prophecies and apply them to our own lives. In conclusion, the prophecies of Jeremiah to the remnant hold tremendous significance and relevance, both in their historical context and for us today. They demonstrate the faithfulness of God in fulfilling His promises, the importance of heeding His warnings, and the power of hope and restoration even in the midst of difficult circumstances. Jeremiah's role in the liberation of the remnant, the regathering of the Jews, the exposure of a plot against them, and the profound implications of these prophecies serve as a reminder of God's unwavering love and guidance. May we glean wisdom and insight from these prophecies, applying them to our own lives and finding hope in the midst of challenges.
