Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

August 5 - Evening

" 'Get yourself ready!
Stand up and say to them whatever I command you.
Do not be terrified by them,
or I will terrify you before them.

Today I have made you a fortified city,
an iron pillar and
a bronze wall to stand against the whole land
— against the kings of Judah, its officials, its priests and the people of the land.

They will fight against you
but will not overcome you,
for I am with you and will rescue you,'

declares the Lord."

- Jeremiah 1:17-19

Jeremiah's Call and Commission    

Jeremiah’s commission includes three commands which combined commands, warnings and promises:

  1. “Get yourself ready” – from the idiom “gird up your loins: which comes from the need to tie the long robe around the waist in order to work or run feely. This is seen in 1 Kings.18:46
    and 2 Kings 4:29.
  2. “Stand up and Say to them whatever I command you” –
  3. “Do not be terrified by them, or I will terrify you before them” – “terrify” is literally “to shatter” or “to break in pieces.” According to translators and commentators God is sayings:
    1. “Trust me and do not let the people “shatter” you , or else I will “shatter” you myself!
    2. “Don’t lose your nerve, or I will shatter your nerve” (J. Bright)
    3. “Do not let your spirit break at sight of them, or I will break you.” (NEB)
    4. “Do not be panicked, or I will give you something to fear!”
    5. “Do not break down, or I will break you!” (NRSV

Jeremiah is given promises:

  1. I have made you a fortified city – Jeremiah would be like a walled city that could not be broken into. Although Jerusalem’s walls would fall, Jeremiah’s walls would stand firm.
  2. I have made you an iron pillar
  3. I have made you a bronze wall to stand against the whole land
    1. To stand against the kings of Judah
    2. To stand against the officials of Judah
    3. To stand against the priests of Judah
    4. To stand against the people of Judah

These same images and metaphors, such as “bronze wall” and “iron pillar”, are used
by Thutmose the III to describe himself to present the appearance of being undefeatable.


  1. They will fight you
  2. They will not overcome you
  3. I am with you
  4. I will rescue you
  Christian Quote from Church History
"[The 4 spiritual laws and sinner's prayer] is not the gospel of Jesus Christ, and that methodology and envangelism has done more to hurt this country than every heresy introduced by every cult combined. Millions of people in this country whose lives have never been changed believed themselves born again because we have so reduced the gospel of Jesus Christ that it means now nothing more than simple decision that will only take five minutes of your time."
- Paul Washer

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Hapax (Gr) – once (Eng) – the Greek word hapax means “once,” and “one time.”
is used in the Greek to mean “once” or “one time” in 2 Corinthians 11:25 and Hebrews 9:7.
The same word hapax is used to express the meaning of a final decision or
absolute validity that will not need to be reinvestigated or repeated when hapax is
translated “once for all” in Hebrews 6:4; Hebrews 10:2; 1 Peter 3:18 and Jude 3.


A pillar in Capernaum made in the 300’s AD preserves the family name of John and James with a Hebrew inscription that says, “Alphaeus the son of Zebedee, the son of John, made this column, may it be a blessing to him.” This seems to indicate that the family name (Son of Zebedee) and names of family members that were used repeatedly (John) connect this family back to the first century family of James and John
(Matthew 4:13-22).
