First let's get something clear about erroneous notions of Paul and his founding a new religion, which he didn't. True, the halakhah of his Judaism switched from the Pharisaic oral law to the Ruach Hakodesh, but his religion was still one of the Judaisms of the time, not a new non-Judaism Gentile religion.
The g-dly king Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign
(640 B.C.E.) and forty years old when he was killed (609 B.C.E.).
Around Josiah's 21st year of life, the young prophet Jeremiah
was called to preach. He was to have many years of preaching ministry,
during the following: first, the reign of the Josiah's 23 year-old son
Jehoahaz (609 B.C.E.) who ruled only three months in Judah and,
after being deposed and exiled by Pharaoh Necho, died in Egyptian
Jehoiakim (609 B.C.E.), who was installed as king over Judah at
the age of 25 and ruled 11 years; then, the reign of Jehoiachin (598
B.C.E.), who was installed at age 18 and ruled little more than 3
months before he was taken prisoner to Babylon by King
Nebuchadnezzar; the reign of Zedekiah (597 B.C.E.) who was 21
years old when he began to reign and was blinded by
Nebuchadnezzar shortly before the fall of Jerusalem in 586 B.C.E.
The evil reigns of these miserable sons of Josiah were prophecied
by Isaiah who said, "I will make boys their princes, and babes
burning the Bible.
Jeremiah objected to G-d at his call that he was too young to
preach, but G-d silenced him (1:2). G-d appointed him to be a
preacher who would "pluck up and pull down, destroy and
preaching would cause stumbling blocks (6:21), testing and
refining the people (6:27). Fire would come out of his mouth and
would be neither rain nor dew except at Elijah's word (I Kings
17:1), so Judah would be uprooted and taken into Exile and then
(70 years later-- 25:11) Judah would be planted back in Israel
(31:28), but these cataclysmic events would happen only at
Immediately in Jeremiah's ministry G-d shows him the coming
crisis, represented by a "boiling pot, tilted away from the
north" (1:13). This pot was going to boil over and pour its hot
lava of destruction as foreign soldiers came down on Jerusalem
persons of King Nebuchadnezzar's Babylonian soldiers. G-d is
telling Jeremiah to preach that there is no escape from these
soldiers. The people have broken G-d's Law and now G-d is sending
His divine marshalls to put the people under arrest and take them
off to Babylon to serve a 70 year prison sentence in Exile. Go
peaceably, Jeremiah preaches, and you will live. If the nation
humbles itself and waits on the L-rd, the nation will return. But
whoever attempts to resist the divine arrest will be put to
death. They will be like bad figs (24:8), and because of their
disobedience G-d will not give them a heart to know Him (24:7).
This was Jeremiah's hard message, which cost him dearly, and
brought great persecution down on his head. But, ironically,
weak, isolated Jeremiah, the maggid with the dangerous and
wrath-provoking message, is in much safer hands than the
sonerous-voiced false prophets and power weilding political
leaders, who stir up violence against Jeremiah as a traitor. For
the L-rd promises to protect Jeremiah but to put to death these
enemies of his, both Jews and Gentiles, with judgment beginning
shepherds" (25:35), a prophecy that proved true for fleeing King
Zedekiah, the last king of Judah (52:1-11). All the wicked must
drink the lethal cup of judgment that is coming (25:28), even
ultimately that anti-Moshiach the king of Babylon (Jer. 25:26).
The reason for the coming Babylonian Exile is given in 5:18-19,
the land of Israel was full of elilim (idols). See also 9:12-16;
especially child sacrifice (Jer. 7:30-34) brought great national
disaster of Judah, just as the abortion holocaust will bring
great grief on America. Consequently, G-d's wrath burns against
her, and G-d is going to turn Jerusalem into an abortion and it
will be no place to marry or to bear children (16:3-4).
because she has stubbornly rejected the L-rd, her true husband,
and has given herself in spiritual adultery to false g-ds, the
Baals and all the worthless foreign idols that have taken over
her land. Nothing short of the Babylonian exile would cure her
of this sin of changing her g-ds (2:11). What is amazing is that
the kingdom of Judah does not learn her lesson by seeing the
idolatrous northern kingdom of Israel go off (722 B.C.E.) into
a similar punishment herself to get cured of idolatry. But, to
put it simply, the main fault that brought all this punishment on
G-d's people was refusal to listen to the prophetic Word of the
Jeremiah did not have a popular message to preach (look at it--
hear someone prophesy massacre and national desolation (see, for
some men from Jeremiah's home town (Anathoth near Jerusalem) were
so embarrassed and infuriated by his preaching that they started
stupid, because they did not inquire of the L-rd (10:21); also
the wise, because they had rejected the Word of G-d (8:9). And
the rest of the people either scoffed at all preaching (5:12-13)
or championed the false prophets who contradicted Jeremiah's
message predicting war and judgment. Jer. l4:16 says that people
who listen to false prophets will be destroyed with them (so take
heed, you in the cults, or you who love your rabbi or your
priest). The false prophets were incompetent to warn against
coming disaster because G-d had not sent them (14:14) and they
had no knowledge (14:18). These spiritually stupid false
shepherds assured the people of peace even while the flames of
beyond understanding (17:9). Other lying false prophets in
Jeremiah are Pashhur the false kohen (20:1), Chananyah the false
Maaseiah (see 29:21-23 which says that a sexually immoral
preacher is by definition a false prophet). And look what
happened to Shemaiah of Nehelam who wrote a scathing letter from
the Exile against Jeremiah (29:24-32). False teachers (scribes,
rabbis) nullified the Word of the L-rd by their lying pen with
which they handed down their own traditions (see Jer. 8:8). A
true scribe (like Baruch) does not seek great things for himself
tribulation world that is on the brink of destruction (45:5).
Because of these false political and religious shepherds (23:1-2
refused to know G-d (9:6). The time of repentance and revival in
Israel had past (8:20); doom and judgment were inevitable on
king, kohen, prophet, and inhabitant of Jerusalem (13:13). But
Jeremiah saw beyond the Exile and the Return and he had in view
raise up at that time: "I will give you shepherds after my own
heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding (3:15;
see also 23:3-4)."
With the ominous look of a weeping undertaker (9:1) called to
preside over the funeral and burial (in Exile) of the whole
nation, Jeremiah comes on the scene and makes his doleful
appearance (see 15:17. Jerusalem and its neighboring towns are
to celibacy (since what is going to happen to Judah now will make
it no place to raise children), Jeremiah is also instructed by
G-d that his devastatingly sad message will close down wedding
chapels (7:34). He is to shake the dust or the mourner off his
feet (16:5), since deaths en masse will now be divine punishment.
Mourning is futile when death is judgment and is coming like an
epidemic on the entire population. However there will be a
she'erit Yisroel (remnant of Israel), because G-d will not make a
end-time Exodus from the north is predicted in Jer. 16:14-l5;
31:8, which is a prophecy that is not exhausted by the Return
from Babylon but must surely also include Soviet (now Russian) Jews returning
from the former Soviet Union (due north of Israel) in the greatest
Exodus ever, one that will shortly double the population of
Israel in our own time. The prodigal nation will come home
(31:13--"I will turn their mourning into joy") and will be
ultimately reconciled to G-d and to His Moshiach (33:14-18; cf.
(32:39), the way of the new birth circumcision of the Brit
Because of the pressure that was on him, Jeremiah was tempted to
wallow in self-pity and to speak bitterly. But G-d promises that
if he will "utter worthy words" G-d will protect him and make him
a "fortified wall of bronze" (15:19-20). But the true prophet
must speak G-d's word faithfully (23:28).
We see Jeremiah as a type of the Moshiach (compare Jer. 11:19 to
Jeremiah is a kinsman-redeemer (32:7), showing that G-d will
ultimately redeem his exiled land, showing hope in the midst of
bitter tragedy (32:24-25). He prophesied Et-Tzarah (the "time of
Jacob's trouble"--30:7) and the destruction of the Beis Hamikdash
who will be "raised up" out of this tribulation (30:9), just as
Yehoshua prophesied the destruction of the Beis Hamikdash and the
Jeremiah buried in mud but then raised to the right hand of power
(given favor with both King Zedekiah and King Nebuchadnezzar) in
Jer. 42:18 shows the folly of relying on the deceptive "help" of
Egypt. Here we see that we must not look at events or people but
listen to the word of the L-rd and rely on Him. When it comes to
Egypt, even after the Exile, some people never learn (44:7-10).

Historical facts and dates: 640 B.C.E. King Josiah, an
eight-year-old child, begins his reign. He will only live to be
40 years old and will be killed in battle by the Egyptians, but
during his reign there will be a breath of both revival and
627 B.C.E. Jeremiah is called of G-d to be a prophet. Ashurbanipal, last
of the great Assyrian rulers, dies. Judah is under tribute to
Assyria whom power was beginning to wane.
626 B.C.E. Nabopolassar begins neo-Babylonian Empire, revolting against
Assyria and beginning his 21-year reign. His son Nebuchadrezzar
would destroy the Jerusalem Beis Hamikdash in 586 B.C.E. 621 B.C.E.
Discovery of the book of the Law in the Beis Hamikdash (Jer.
612 B.C.E. Ninevah, the capital of Assyria, is sacked by the Babylonians
and Medes as Nahum predicted.
609 B.C.E. King Josiah is killed at Megiddo by Necho of Egypt who was on
his way to fight to rescue Assyria from Babylon. This is believed
to be the famous site known as Armageddon, where Revelation 16:16 says
the final battle will take place.
609 B.C.E. Jehoahaz (Shallum) ruled Judah for three months before being
deposed by Necho and taken to Egypt in chains as collateral to
assure high indemnity payments.
609-598 B.C.E. Jehoiakim reigns over Judah as Egyptian vassal enthroned
by Pharaoh Necho. He was an evil king (see Jer. 22:21). 605 B.C.E.
is the year of the Battle of the Assyrian city of Carchemish
(the ruins of which are on the Euphrates in what is today Syria
and Turkey) which fell when the Assyrian Empire finally succumbed
in defeat. Nabopolassar sent his son Nebuchadnezzar to defeat the
Assyrian ally Pharoah Necho and the Egyptians there (the
Egyptians had occupied the city but lost the war--see Jer. 46)
and then Babylonian soldiers entered Israel, taking Daniel etc
hostage (II Kg. 24:1). Jehoiakim abandoned Egyptian suzerainty
and became a vassal of Babylon. Because the people of Judah had
seen a few temporary victories of the Egyptians, they refused to
believe Jeremiah's prophesies about Babylon destroying Judah and
this brought persecution on Jeremiah. But Jeremiah trusted in no
foreign alliances, especially with Egypt (44:26,27). Later the
Pharoah Hophra did prove useless in protecting Jerusalem from the
angry hand of Nebuchadnezzar when he began his siege in January
of 588 B.C.E.
inspired to write it again, this time with a judgment upon
601 B.C.E. Because of a temporary victory of Egypt against Babylonia, the
pro-Egyptian party in Jerusalem persuades Jehoiakim that Judah
should side with Egypt again in spite of Jeremiah's warning
(Jeremiah 22:13-19). This act of rebellion against Nebuchadnezzar
spelled Jehoiakim's downfall, and he received the burial not of
an honored king but of a donkey (22:19), for Judah's enemies were
armed by Nebuchadnezzar to attack her (II Kings 24:2).
597 B.C.E. Jehoiakim dies. Eighteen-year-old Jehoiachin (Coniah), who
only reigned three months, is captured. Nebuchadnezzar captures
Jerusalem and deports King Jehoiachin to Babylon with many
others, including Ezekiel. Nebuchadnezzar replaces Jehoiachin
with Zedekiah (II Kings 24:17). Zedekiah, a third son of Josiah
to come to the throne, soon after permits nationalistic minded
nobles to imprison Jeremiah.
589 B.C.E. Zedekiah's revolt begins.
586 B.C.E. Nebuchadnezzar again occupies Jerusalem because Zedekiah had
entered into negotiations with Egypt (II Kings 25:1-7).
586 B.C.E. Destruction of Jerusalem. Zedekiah tries to flee but is
captured and taken to Nebuchadnezzar's throne in Riblah (in
modern Syria) and Zedekiah's family is slain and he is blinded
and taken in chains to Babylon where he died (39:6-7). Jeremiah
is released from prison by the Babylonians and given to the care
586 B.C.E. Gedaliah appointed governor of Judah and assassinated.
Jeremiah is taken to Egypt where he predicts the conquest of
Egypt by Nebuchadnezzar (43:8-13), fulfilled 568-567 B.C.E.. 585 B.C.E.
Jeremiah in Egypt.
Jeremiah was "a man of strife and dissension for all the land"
(15:10), a prophet nailed by the driving, firey hammer of G-d's
Word, a lonely, weeping prophet of vision who stood out against
the shallow optimism and political expediency that would lull his
nation into the inevitable divine judgment of war and national
disaster. But like Moshiach Yehoshua/Yeshua, Jeremiah was without honor
in his own hometown (11:21), which was three miles northeast of
Jerusalem, a village called Anathoth. He belonged to the tribe of
What does G-d require of you? To feed on his Book until you get
'My words into your mouth'--then preach them. You are called to preach. We want the L-rd's
ministries to grow numerically and we want to do all we can to
see new people discipled, but we need to remember that Jeremiah's
message was so strident (judgment, defeat, impending death and
disaster) that only a small number of people were friendly with
him. Ahikam hid Jeremiah when he would otherwise probably have
been killed after his third Beis Hamikdash sermon (Jer. 26:24)
Hilkiah was the g-dly kohen who discovered the book of the Law
during the early part of Jeremiah's ministry, and Huldah was the
prophetess who helped to spark Josiah's reforms because she
prophesied disaster would overtake his nation (II Kings 22:16;
After Josiah died, real persecution was in store for this lonely
prophet of G-d.
A key theme verse is 1:10. G-d has the nations in his hands like
a potter (18:5-10) molding clay pottery and when they displease
him, he can squeeze them into destruction like he did Nazi
Germany. In the same way G-d has uprooted and then replanted the
nation of Israel (31:27). Here is his promise: Stay in G-d's will
and under his discipline and he "will build you and not
overthrow, plant you and not uproot" (42:10). But here is his
warning: "I am going to overthrow what I have built, and uproot
what I have planted--this applies to the whole land. And do you
expect great things for yourself? Don't expect them. For I am
going to bring disaster upon all flesh--declares the L-rd--but I
will at least grant you your life in all the places where you may
The maggid (preacher) is not ignorant of what G-d is doing in the
world, and as a co-worker with G-d, the maggid's (preacher's)
words are actually G-d's hammers and planting forks.
Jeremiah foresees G-d's nemesis, Babylon, coming (just as
Yochanan in Revelation saw eschatological Babylon coming). And Jeremiah
sees that since Babylon is G-d's marshall, the only thing for the
Jewish people to do is to put their hands up and submit to the arrest of
exile, the arrest of the Golus; otherwise, they will be fighting G-d and will be
destroyed. His message sounded like treason to unregenerate ears,
and most people would not listen to him though he preached for over 40
years. (See 25:3-14 for a sample of his main message.) How would
you like to preach 21:8-10? The seventy year Golus (Exile) was an awesome
punishment, a virtual life imprisonment away from one's homeland.
Note: "For I am summoning the sword against all the inhabitants of the
earth" (Jeremiah 25:29). Jeremiah preached to the g-dless that
you have rejected the Word of the L-rd, so your wisdom amounts to
(But can you say all this with tears? See 8:19-23.)
Unregenerate men are repulsed by a Jeremiah. Unregenerate men are
not interested in what G-d is doing, only what man is doing
the unregenerate loves a G-d, he loves a strange one. He says,
"It's no use" and joins the vast millions involved in the cults.
The Jews in Egypt told Jeremiah, "I can't give up my cult because
I'm so blessed by it" (chapter 44). The unregenerate follows the
willfulness of his own evil heart. The unregenerate person is
described in 4:22. Even if he is wealthy and cultured, he is
still a low-life rebel (5:4-5). He is persistent in rebellion,
clings to deceit, and refuses to repent (8:5).
A heart circumcision is needed, opening the heart and cutting
away the thickness. Moshiach is the living Torah who cuts the
Brit Chadasha (Jeremiah 31:31-34) and only he can cut us with the
new creation circumcision. A hellish reprisal awaits all those
who refuse to submit to his circumcision and believe on Moshiach
shows us what the sacrifice of G-d (climaxing at Moshiach's Etz)
means: repent or this will happen to you!
Do you realize that you are being raised up as G-d's watchmen?
(6:17) You are to watch and pray until you have a word from the
L-rd. You are to stand in the council of the L-rd, and see and
hear his Word, and then you are to proclaim it and obey it
(23:18,22) and turn his people back from their wicked ways. A
true maggid (preacher) has a true burden from the L-rd; it is the
application of a text to the discerned needs of the people he is
addressing. A maggid (preacher) can pray and get a word from the
L-rd for the people (42:4).
You are to tell people, "Don't trust your religion. Don't say,
"I'm Catholic! I'm Jewish!" (7:3) "I attended mass! I went to
High Holy Day Services! (7:8-10). And don't say a word about 'The
Queen of Heaven!' (7:18). In Jeremiah's third Beis Hamikdash
speech (Jer.26) he warned that G-d was going to make the Beis
Hamikdash like Shiloh. From the time of Joshua until the time of
Eli, Shiloh had been the place of Jewish worship. But remember
Eli and Eli's wicked sons (I Sam. 2:12) who ministered there?
Consequently, the L-rd allowed the Philistines to destroy Shiloh
and Jeremiah is pointing to another army coming to do the same
thing to Jerusalem if the people do not repent.
Jeremiah is an example of a prophet who is a virtual refugee from
the existing authorities, both religious and political. We learn
a lot about the ministry from him. 22:13-17 reflects by contrast the
sacrificial lifestyle of a man of G-d. He is faithful and
fearless for the sake of the flock. Hasn't G-d given you a little
flock? Do you let them stray and scatter? Get a partner and pray
about your little flock, pray about specific people and then go
together and minister to that person together. If you can be
trusted with one, G-d will add to your flock.
Who will shepherd the Israelis? (See 23:1-4)
Jeremiah did prophetic "street theatre" mimes, interpreted
dramatic actions, and he was not afraid of the "flesh" of his
loincloth in chapter 13 and the interpreted mime with the yoke in
commanded him to stand out-of-doors and preach in the open air.
He could do it because he knew he was sent (26:15). Has G-d sent
you to New York? To some other city?
Why can't we have a street dance company (with musicians)? See
Jeremiah 30:7 calls the tribulation the "time of Jacob's
trouble", but see 31:7-9. During Hitler's Holocaust the ships
started arriving in Israel. G-d was providing a haven of refuge
even during such tribulation.
The Israel of G-d is eternal (31:36); we have been grafted in and
so also will the remnant of all peoples and the last days
remnant of the Jewish people. The Brit Chadasha kehillah is a
miraculous fellowship of Jacobs and Ruths. However, the Jewish nation
is an esohatologically significant people group--see 46:28.
Notable verses: Jeremiah predicts who will defeat Babylon
Notable themes: The reversal of the imprisoned prophet who is
obedient to G-d and freed while the disobedient people go off in
chains to exile is a key picture here. Thinking of Jeremiah in
the dungeon of King Zedekiah must have comforted Shliach Sha'ul
in the dungeon of Nero in Rome.
Zedekiah had to be physically blinded to realize he was
spiritually blind, as was also true of Saul.
We see what Nietzsche, Sartre, Lenin, etc., would like to do to
the Bible when King Jehoiakim cuts it up and burns it without
fear in chapter 36.
The Brit Chadasha kehillah needs kiruv outreach societies,
shlichut agencies, and other Brit Chadasha kehillah
organizations and sodalities. An example of such an organization is found in
chapter 35. It is a "second decision" organization, requiring
commitment to a certain "mandate" and membership involves one in
committed activity beyond normal congregational life. The prophet
Jeremiah and Baruch constitute a sodality as well. A sodality is
a grouping together based on common purpose or interest. Rav
Sha'ul's company in Acts 13:13 is another example.
The local Brit Chadasha kehillah sometimes does not see this
structure in the Bible and tries to control and destroy the
autonomy and legitimacy of these sodalities, which also sometimes
abuse their autonomy and fall into disrepute because they do not
realize that they are servants of the local Brit Chadasha
kehillah and not beyond its correction.
Sodality members who have leaders with no accountability vis-a-vis a larger
body are following a potential independent rebel who is
unaccountable to anyone. This is how cult leaders and all manner of
cults and scandalous failures begin and is not Scriptural.
Get a prayer partner and start doing visitation outreach together
with the people you pray for. Follow Jeremiah's model and prepare

Notice the very important prophesy that the exile would last for
Jeremiah's real estate inheritance activities are his prophetic
verification that the word of G-d regarding the restoration of
Jer. 21:8 says that there are two ways, the Derech HaChayim, the
way of life, the way of covenant blessing, and the Derech
Hamavet, the way of death, the way of the covenant curse. The
fool chooses the way of death. He knows about the rental covenant
he signed with the Landlord, but he says, "I don't have to read
it, or study the fine print, I can forget about the rent due
notices, I can lay around in filth and create a fire hazard, I
can have noisy parties all night long and walk the dog without
going outside (I once had a neighbor who did that--but he was
very clean, he always insisted on hosing down the floor once a
day, no matter what the tenant below him screamed as his
apartment was flooded)." He never worried about the rent
covenant. No covenant curses will ever cross my threshold! he
said, as he hosed down his dogs and his living room floor. But
G-d's Word shows us something different. The wrath of the Lamb,
the covenant reprisals of the Lamb, those curses that crossed the
threshold to destroy the Egyptians, will not pass over you unless
you come out from among them and stand under the blood mark of
the Lamb. When we celebrate Pesach, we need to also celebrate Jeremiah's
Brit Chadasha and our redemption from the plagues of Egypt by the
Moshiach-Lamb who took our plagues.
Notice that G-d gave Jeremiah a very important and shocking, even
enraging, message and then did not tell him to share it with
Baruch and a few kindly souls in a quiet, sympathetic, Brit
Chadasha kehillah audience. No, G-d commanded Jeremiah to go
into the "lion's den" and preach in the Beis Hamikdash area
itself where a riot was inevitable (read very, very carefully
Jer. 26:2). This is our model of what preaching is, not a Brit
Chadasha kehillah ritual performed tamely between the offering
and the benediction for the benefit of a few religious folk, but
a dangerous, life-or-death confrontation ordered by G-d at a
particular place where G-d's enemies are given one final warning
before G-d's judgment disastrously falls upon them.
If we have any illusions that humanism is right when it says that
us otherwise. The heart of man is desperately wicked--who can
know it? (Jer. 17:9) If Man were good, surely these "good" people
would say, "Jeremiah, we know you are a true prophet. We've seen
all that you prophesied in the last nearly 40 years come true. As
you predicted, Judah is now in exile in Babylon. Therefore, we
will listen to G-d and respect and obey you as G-d's prophet."
Instead read Jer. 43:2 to find out what they did say. Here we
see that man needs a supernatural miracle in his heart to bring
him to the point where he can know G-d and stop rebelling against
G-d's word (Lam. 1:18).
Behold, the days come, saith the L-rd, that I will raise unto
Dovid a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper and
shall execute judgement and justice in the earth.
In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely:
and this is the name whereby he shall be called, The L-rd Our
Behold (Look). the time is coming, saith the L-rd, that I will
make a Brit Chadasha with the house of Israel, and with the house
Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in
the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the 2
land of Egypt; which my covenant they broke, although I was a
husband unto them, saith the L-rd:
But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of
Israel; After those days (after that time), saith the L-rd, I
will put my torah within them (in their volitional thoughts and emotional will)
and write it in their hearts; and will be their G-d, and they
shall be my people.
And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every
man his brother, saying. Know the L-rd: for they shall all know
me. from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the
L-rd: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember
their sin no more.
[Notice this passage is talking about an intimate, inward
knowledge of G-d, of a sense of relationship, even fellowship
with G-d, as well as the assurance of forgiveness of sins; in
short, regeneration. Jeremiah foresaw Brit Chadasha Jews and he
understood that the Word of G-d would somehow effect the miracle
of the Brit Chadasha "in their hearts." Have you become a Brit
