The Israelites Had Lived In The Promised Land (The 2nd Time) For Close To 900 Years.
Lead By A Godly Joshua Who (With 1 Foot In The Wilderness And 1 Foot In The Promised Land} Challenged The Children Of Israel To Choose This Day …They Crossed Over & Conquered The Promised Land
Period Of Judges
3 Kings United Kingdom
However …. Continued Further And Further From God …
By The Time Of Our Texts For Today …The Kingdom Of Israel Had Already Been Carried Off By The Assyrians …As Prophesied By Isaiah
Then … Just Before 600 BC … A Young Man Was Born In Anathoth (3 Miles NE Of Jerusalem) To A Priest. God Had Chosen Him Before He Was Conceived
And Set Him Apart Before He Was Born To Be 1 Of The Major Characters Of Old Testament History.
As It Turned Out … His Life Was To Be A Lonely Life Of Dedication To God’s Service. He Could Attend No Feasts. He Could Take No Wife For Himself. Have No Children (Therefore No Lineage Of His Own). His Love Would Be God’s People. His Life Would Be Wrapped In Their Future
However As Sad As That Life Sounds … It Was Only The Beginning Of An Even More Unpleasant Ministry. His Message Was So Negative / Unpopular / Dismal That He Wanted To Quit Preaching. His Message Was 1 Distasteful Prediction Of Slaughter And Destruction After The Other. His Own Words Were So Unpleasant (By His Own Evaluation) That He Decided To Prophesy No More.
However He Could Not Carry Out His Plan Because The Word Of God Became Like A Fire In His Bones And Although He Continued To Prophesy What God Wanted … He Wished He Had Never Been Born.
His Overall Message Of 45 Years Was Doom & Gloom. God’s People Had Forsaken Him. She Followed After Other Gods (That Were No Gods At All). God’s People Had Abandoned Justice / Mercy. They Forgot The Fatherless / Widows. They Loved Money And Were Greedy For It. They Were About To Be Invaded And Conquered. Their Capitol Jerusalem Was Soon To Fall. And It’s Destruction Would Not Be Pretty Or Pleasant
