Bible study # 67: Jeremiah’s words made Daniel repent in Babylon

How do we know the Bible is the truth? Just read about Daniel who found a promise of God in the book of Jeremiah.

Do not miss out that the Messiah is both the Lion and the Lamb.

Daniel was a refugee. But in the castle of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon,  the Jew from the tribe of Judah got his hand on the Prophetic scroll of the Prophet Jeremiah.

 Daniel 9:2
in the first year of his reign I, Daniel, understood by the books the number of the years specified by the word of the LORD through Jeremiah the prophet, that He would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.

Jeremiah was called to be a prophet just before the city of Jerusalem fell into the hands of the Babylonians. He was called to tell the King of the southern Kingdom of Judah. He was troubled by a priest, who also was a false prophet called Pashhur. This priest told the King what pleased his ears.

 Jeremiah 20: 1-6

Now Pashhur the son of Immer, the priest who was also chief governor in the house of the Lord, heard that Jeremiah prophesied these things.  Then Pashhur struck Jeremiah the prophet, and put him in the stocks that were in the high gate of Benjamin, which was by the house of the Lord.

And it happened on the next day that Pashhur brought Jeremiah out of the stocks. Then Jeremiah said to him:

“The Lord has not called your name Pashhur, but Magor-Missabib. For thus says the Lord: ‘Behold, I will make you a terror to yourself and to all your friends; and they shall fall by the sword of their enemies, and your eyes shall see it. I will give all Judah into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall carry them captive to Babylon and slay them with the sword.

Moreover I will deliver all the wealth of this city, all its produce, and all its precious things; all the treasures of the kings of Judah I will give into the hand of their enemies, who will plunder them, seize them, and carry them to Babylon.

And you, Pashhur, and all who dwell in your house, shall go into captivity. You shall go to Babylon, and there you shall die, and be buried there, you and all your friends, to whom you have prophesied lies.’”

This priest Pashhur claimed to know “God”, but had corrupted him self. He told King Zedekiah what pleased the King. Even though the king did evil.

 2 Kings 24:17-19
Then the king of Babylon made Mattaniah, Jehoiachin’suncle, king in his place, and changed his name to Zedekiah.

Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he became king, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Hamutal the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah.

He also did evil in the sight of the Lord, according to all that Jehoiakim had done.

When Jeremiah was called, God told Him to write down the messages He received. These Words were later read by Daniel.

 Jeremiah 36: 1-3

 Now it came to pass in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, that this word came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying:  “Take a scroll of a book and write on it all the words that I have spoken to you against Israel, against Judah, and against all the nations, from the day I spoke to you, from the days of Josiah even to this day. It may be that the house of Judah will hear all the adversities which I purpose to bring upon them, that everyone may turn from his evil way, that I may forgive their iniquity and their sin.”

Daniel knew that King Zedekiah had done evil. The King was also exiled to Babylon. Jeremiah escaped the captivity, but left His scroll behind. In the scroll Daniel found Gods warning to the King, which was completely overruled.  Daniel also found the promise from God, that the exile would last 70 years.

Daniel repented, also on behalf of the Jewish people.

  Daniel 9:8

   “O Lord, to us belongs shame of face, to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, because we have sinned against You.

Please read His prayer all over again in Daniel chapter 9.

The Jews were all punished. All of them were exiled. God can bring down nations, even destroy His own temple.

 Jeremiah 25:10-12

 Moreover I will take from them the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones and the light of the lamp. And this whole land shall be a desolation and an astonishment, and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.

 ‘Then it will come to pass, when seventy years are completed, that I will punish the king of Babylon and that nation, the land of the Chaldeans, for their iniquity,’ says the Lord; ‘and I will make it a perpetual desolation.

The prophet Jeremiah had risked His own life in a bid to call the King to repent, or face stern punishment from God.
 

 Jeremiah 36:19-36

So Baruch answered them, “He proclaimed with his mouth all these words to me, and I wrote them with ink in the book.” Then the princes said to Baruch, “Go and hide, you and Jeremiah; and let no one know where you are.”

The King Destroys Jeremiah’s Scroll

 And they went to the king, into the court; but they stored the scroll in the chamber of Elishama the scribe, and told all the words in the hearing of the king. So the king sent Jehudi to bring the scroll, and he took it from Elishama the scribe’s chamber. And Jehudi read it in the hearing of the king and in the hearing of all the princes who stood beside the king.

Now the king was sitting in the winter house in the ninth month, with a fire burning on the hearth before him. And it happened, when Jehudi had read three or four columns, that the king cut it with the scribe’s knife and cast it into the fire that was on the hearth, until all the scroll was consumed in the fire that was on the hearth.

 Yet they were not afraid, nor did they tear their garments, the king nor any of his servants who heard all these words. Nevertheless Elnathan, Delaiah, and Gemariah implored the king not to burn the scroll; but he would not listen to them. And the king commanded Jerahmeel the king’s son, Seraiah the son of Azriel, and Shelemiah the son of Abdeel, to seize Baruch the scribe and Jeremiah the prophet, but the Lord hid them.

(end of scripture).

The rejection of the Word of God by King Zedekiah had devastating consequences for the Jewish kingdom. God the Holy Spirit left the Temple in Jerusalem, and permitted it to be destroyed.

In a similar way, the Kingdoms of the World has no respect for the Word of God. Priests and false prophets of different kinds, tell lies to the leaders and the people. They have cancelled the judgment that is coming.

Let me give you all a prophecy:

Salvation is available for all who accept Jesus the Messiah as God and Master.

Those who delete the Word of God found in the Bible, shall not be sent in a temporarily exile for 70 years. They shall all face judgment. The penalty will be everlasting separation from God, and a horrific eternity in Hell.  There is no exit to be found. Only pain and agony without end.

We wise. Surrender to the Word of God today.

  1. Take heart brothers and sisters, the Lord God reveals to His servants His promises. Despite what our rulers do, the agreements and schemes they may be making between themselves, Gods servants know none of it will last.

    Thanks Ivar for pointing us back to Daniels prayer, as the worlds rulers and false prophets do what they do, we have to remember that this is Gods world, salvation comes from Him and through the blood of His beloved Son Jesus Christ, as He reveals more truth that prayer will once again be said by His servants and He will answer.

  2. The leaders of today are nothing but blind guides, most of whom are profoundly wicked.
    I live in Barney Franks district. Hear is a leader who is a jew, who daily makes a mockery of the Torah. Thanks to him we have the destruction of the housing market. When elections roll around he makes his usual worn out Rabbis’ and bacon jokes, which is nothing more than a reminder to the jewish community, awink and a nod, if you will, that he is also a jew, and as such, most jews continually support him. This man is so arrogant that when he announced his retirement, he actually made a public announcement that he would no longer have to pretend to like his constituents. In an added jesture, again mocking G’d”s laws, he has announced that he will now marry his long time boy friend. These are the leaders that we the people vote into office. Is it any wonder that G’d is going to render judgement against this nation.

    1. TODD IS CORRECT HE IS NOT A JEW ,,,, A JEW FOLLOWS GOD NOT MAN ROMANS 2:29 I KNOW THE JEWS DO NOT BELIEVE THE NEW TESTAMENT BUT THEY WILL SOON SEE THE FULFILLMENT IS COMING AND IT INCLUDES ALL OF THE BIBLE BEFORE AND AFTER CHIRST ON THE CROSS, 490 YEAR PROPHECY CAME TRUE AND SO WILL THE PROPHECY OF DANIEL AND REVELATION , NO HOPE IN THIS WORLD , CREATION WILL GO BACK TO NULL AND VOID AS IT WAS BEFORE BUT THE NEW HEAVEN AND NEW EARTH AS IN ISAIAH 22For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain. THIS MATCHES REVELATION 21:1And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

      2And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

      2000 YEARS TO THE FLOOD , 2000 YEARS TO THE CROSS 2000 YEARS TO THE END.SAME AS 6 DAYS FOR GOD,,, 1000 YEAR REST BEFORE THE NEW HEAVEN AND NEW EARTH COME DOWN FROM GOD ,,, THE 1000 YEARS IS THE 7TH DAY REST AS WE KNOW 1000 YEARS IS LIKE ONE DAY TO GOD,2 Peter 3:8
      But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

        Greetings in Christ Jesus
        Your response is a faith bulder to me. Thank you my brother.
        So many do not see the truth
        Consider this if you might. There are times in scripture when the words “heaven and earth, and New heaven are used. As I have meditated on those words the Lord Jesus has brought me to an understanding that goes beyond the letter of his word but to the spirit of it. I have begun to believe that often but not always when he speaks of heaven and earth he is referencing the :Old covenant” and when he says new heaven and new earth he is referencing the “New Covenant”. We know that the Old Covenant has passed away and the New Covenant has come to take its place.In Speaking of the Old and New Covenants the writer of the book of Hebrews (who is ultimately Jesus)said that the old is fading and will soon pass away. This spiritual thinking does fit the idea. There is a spiritual letter to Gods word. The teachers of the law only saw the letter of God’s word and therefore did not know scripture and were blind guides.
        Jesus even said to them when they asked him a question regarding marriage in heaven” If you knew scripture you would know the answer to that question”. They did not know scripture.
        They only considered the letter of the law and not the spirit of it
        Bless you today my brother

      2. interesting but sometimes when GOD SAYS A WORD IT MEANS WHAT IT SAYS,,, AFTER THE 1000 YEARS THE DEAD REMAIN DEAD REVELATION 20:5 AND 6 THE NEW HEAVEN AND NEW EARTH OF REVELATION 20:1 AND 2 HAPPEN THERE IS NO NEW COVENANT FOR GODS PEOPLE THEY HAVE BEEN IN HEAVEN FOR 1000 YEARS AS IT SAYS IN REVELATION 20:4 AS DOES 1ST THES. 4: 16 AND 17 WE ARE IN THE CLOUDS NOT ON EARTH … THE SCRIPTURES SAY WHEN 2 OR 3 AGREE AS DOES ISAIAH 66:22 AND REVELATION 21:1 AND 2 AGREE THEN THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS WITH THE SCRIPTURES LIKE GENESIS 1 THE EARTH WAS NULL AND VOID SO AS THE REST OF THE DEAD LIVE NOT AGAIN UNTIL THE 1000 YEARS ARE OVER REVELATION 20:5 AND 6 THE EARTH IS WITHOUT PEOPLE OR ANIMALS ITS VOID UNTIL REVELATION 21:1 AND 2THE NEW HEAVEN AND THE NEW EARTH COME DOWN FROM GOD IN HEAVEN

      3. Roger
        keeping in mind that the book of revelation begins by saying “blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy,….because the time is near. I believe near meant near,soon to take place.Some will argue that point alone giving many different opinions as to how soon is soon. I tend greatly to believe he meant soon and very soon.Verse 19 chap1 Write,therefore, what you have seen(past tense,)what is now,(present tense)and what will take place later. Prophecy is the telling of something that is going to happen in the future. Jesus said in the first words of his prophecy that the time is near for them to be fullfilled.Rev.22 vs 12 the words of Jesus himself;
        ” behold I am comming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done. Again the spirit in us searches all things and asks even the deep questions of God. What did Jesus mean when he said I am comming soon. Is soon very close or is soon more than 2000 years. I tend to believe it is soon from the time of writing. I don’t believe that word means something other than what it means. There is a spirit in his word. Seek it and you will find it

      4. Roger
        One more thing. The New Covenant by the time of the writing of Revelation has already been established. Heb 8;6 But the ministry Jesus has recieved is as superior to theirs(old covenant priests)as the covenant of which he is mediator is superior to the old one and it is founded on better promises. vs. 13. By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete. and what is obsolete and aging will soon dissappear. This is the covenant that that Jeremiah and the other prophets spoke of. Their is no other covenant to come. At least this is the way I see it. If there is another covenant to come I can’t find it. Jesus made a covenant with his people

      5. NO MORE COVENATE WILL COME ONLY THE FULFILLMENT OF THE SIGNS OF THE PROPHECY OF THE END,,,A GATHERING TIME OF PEOPLE SEEKING GOD BUT HAVE BEEN LIED TO ROMANS 1:25 WILL HAPPEN WHEN THE OTHER ANGLES IS GIVEN THE COMMAND TO LIGHTEN UP THE EARTH WITH THE TRUTH REVELATION 18:1 BUT WE HAVE MORE CALAMITIES AND ECONOMIC BAD TIMES COMING BEFORE THE NATIONS UNITE UNDER A FALSE RELIGIOUS POWER TO FORCE RELIGIOUS BELIEFS ON THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD REVELATION 17:4And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

        5And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

        6And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

        7And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. (NOTICE THE WOMAN IS CARRIED BY THE BEAST ) MEANING A RELIGIOUS POWER WILL UNITE WITH THE WORLD GOVERNMENTS TO CREATE PEACE (BUT THIS WILL FAIL)16And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

        17For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. ;;WHEN THEY THINK THEY HAVE PEACE 1 Thessalonians 5:3For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
        ALL HAVE CHOSEN GOD OR THE FALSE RELIGION FORCED ON THE WORLD REVELATION 22:10And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.

        11He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

        12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

        13I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. (NOTICE IN VERSE 10 THE BOOK OF THE PROPHECY IS NOT CLOSED YET ,,,BUT AFTER THE FAILURE TO UNITE UNDER THE CREATOR GOD THE PROVISION ON THE WORLD IS CLOSED AND THE GATHERED FAITHFUL WILL BE SEALED REVELATION 12:17And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.FOR THE LAST PHASE REVELATION 16,,,,

      6. Interesting discussion Roger. I see and read that you study these things in depth. To me there is nothing that fills my soul than to read and study Gods word. Keep it up my brother. I trust that even today you will find a gold nugget of truth that you had not seen before
        Bless you today

      7. THANKS BROTHER ,,, SO MANY LIES TOLD IN THE WORLD ,, I DO AS ACTS 17:11These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. I KNOW SATAN HAS SET UP A LIE TO THE WORLD ,,, AND SAD TO SAY RELIGION ACCEPTS THE LIE OVER THE TRUTH MORE THAN PEOPLE SEE,ROMANS 1:25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. FROM THE MOUTH OF PAUL THE JEWISH PEOPLE DID NOT KNOW THEY WERE WORSHIPPING THE ONE GOD SATAN NOT THE TRUE GOD OF CREATION AS JESUS WAS KILLED FOR BLASPHEMY TRYING TO TELL THE JEWS ABOUT GOD AND HIM AND THE HOLY SPIRIT ROMANS 1:20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

        21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

        22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

        23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

        24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
        REMEMBER IN THE SCRIPTURES THEY WERE GIVING SACRIFICES TO IDOLS THIS WAS THE JEWS THEY HAD REMEMBERED THE GOLDEN CALF THEY MADE IN THE WILDERNESS Acts 15:20
        But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood.
        Acts 15:29
        That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.
        1 Corinthians 8:1
        Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth
        THIS IS CALLED TODAY ARIANISM BECAUSE ARRON ALLOWED THE IDOL WORSHIP. AND THE ONE IN 2ND THESS 2:4Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. IS THE ONE GOD SYSTEM IN THE WORLD TODAY AS ALL NATIONS ARE UNITING UNDER ONE GOD,,, BUT THE BIBLE TELLS WHAT JESUS WAS TRYING TO TEACH THE JEWS IN ROMANS 1:20,21 AND 25 AND ALSO 1ST JOHN 5: 7For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
        VERY CLEAR GOD IS THE GODHEAD TRINITY THAT THE WORLD IS REJECTING AND WORSHIPPING THE CREATURE RATHER THAN THE CREATOR , GOD BLESS YOUR STUDY

      8. I AM NOT JEWISH AND I DO KEEP THE HOLY SABBATH SET UP BY GOD AT CREATION ,THE 7 DAY CREATION ENDED WITH THE SABBATH DAY REST , AND THE END PEOPLE WILL DO THE SAME AS REVELATION 12:7And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.(WHO KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD AND THE SESTIMONY OF JESUS) WHAT ARE THE TESTIMONY’S REVELATION 19:10And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. (ITS THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY WE FOLLOW THE SPIRIT OF JESUS WHO KEPT THE LAWS OF HIS FATHER AS OUR EXAMPLE ((SAME AS GOD WAS THE FIRST TO KEEP THE SABBATH HOLY AS OUR EXAMPLE IN EDEN GENESIS 2:1Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

        2And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

        3And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. ((NOTICE IN VERSE 2 GOD ENDED HIS WORK WHICH HE HAD MADE, AND HE RESTED THE SEVENTH DAY))) THEN—- VERSE 3 AFTER HE RESTED THE FULL SABBATH HE BLESSED AND SANCTIFIED THE 7TH DAY ,,,,,, MEANING CREATION WAS NOT COMPLETE UNTIL GOD KEPT THE SABBATH HOLY AS AN EXAMPLE TO THE WORLD,,,,
        THE WHOLE WORLD HAS TURNED THIER BACKS ON GOD TO WORSHIP THE SUN JUST AS THE JEWS DID BEFORE CHIRST,
        EZEKIEL 8:16And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD’s house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.
        NOTICE THE UNFAITHFUL JEWS OF IDOL WORSHIP TURNED THIER BACKS ON GOD TO WORSHP THE SUN god OF BABYLON ,, THIS WORSHIP IS THE GENTILE FULFILMENT IN TIME AS BABYLON WILL FALL AGAIN,REVELATION 14: 8And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. ((THE TIME OF THE TRAMPELING OF THE LAW IS ALMOST FINISHED )LUKE 21:24And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. LOOK AT THE WORLD TODAY THEY HAVE THROWNED DOWN GODS LAWS AND SAID THEY ARE NOT INEFFECT NOW SO THEY STEAL , LIE , KILL , DISHONOR THERE PARENTS AND THINK GOD WILL SAVE A UNREPENTED WORLD BY GRACE ITS THE REPENTANCE GOD SEEKS FROM MAN AND THAT IS THE ONLY HEARTS THAT WILL BE SAVED
        IN CHRIST GOD BLESS YOUR STUDY

    1. He is not a Jew. To be a Jew he must be one by birth. This is not physical birth as some think. Gal.2:15 says; We who are Jews by birth….. know that a man is not justified by observing the law,but by faith in Christ.So we too have put our faith in Christ.
      Simply; unless he has received the washing of rebirth,Titus 3:5
      he is not a Jew. Jesus told Nicodemus that he must be born again. Paul admits that he also put his faith in Christ. Being born physically as an Israelite or Jew today does not one a Jew.
      Jesus is King of the Jews. He is king of people who have been
      reborn into his kingdom. These know and understand fully that justification comes through faith in Christ.In chap. 3 he goes on to clarify that the children of Abraham are those who believe.
      If one is not by birth a Jew ,then he is a gentile sinner.ch.2 vs.15.
      I hardly think that Barney understands any of this,therefore he has not been born christ’s kingdom and is therefore a sinner.”a gentile sinner.Thats why he mocks the torah.True Jews do not.
      To neglect Jesus as Messiah is to mock Jesus Everything about the Torah points to Jesus. He is a fake. I know and understand that justification comes through faith in Christ. What does that make me? and you

    2. Barneys followers are also not Jews.
      They are just Jew-ish and are gentile sinners who reject Jesus which in turn brings upon them eternal judgement
