Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

August 7 - Evening

"(Jeremiah prays and intercedes for Judah:)
"Have you rejected Judah completely?
Do you despise Zion?
Why have you afflicted us
so that we cannot be healed?
We hoped for peace
but no good has come,
for a time of healing
but there is only terror.
We acknowledge our wickedness, Lord,
and the guilt of our ancestors;
we have indeed sinned against you.
For the sake of your name do not despise us;
do not dishonor your glorious throne.
Remember your covenant with us
and do not break it..."

(The Lord's reply:)
"Then the Lord said to me:
'Even if Moses and Samuel were to stand before me, my heart would not go out to this people.
Send them away from my presence!
Let them go! And if they ask you,

"Where shall we go?"
tell them, This is what the Lord says:

"Those destined for death, to death;
those for the sword, to the sword;
those for starvation, to starvation;
those for captivity, to captivity."

'I will send four kinds of destroyers against them,' declares the Lord, 'the sword to kill and the dogs to drag away and the birds and the wild animals to devour and destroy.'

- Jeremiah 14:19-21; 15:1-3

Hopelessness Occurs When the Lord Decides it is Hopeless    

Jeremiah prays for Judah. Jeremiah sincerely voices the necessary elements of a prayer of repentance and a call for God to rise up to fulfill his covenant obligations.

  • Confession of sin (14:20)
  • God’s Reputation is at stake (14:21)
  • Concern for the weak people (14:21)
  • An appeal to the Lord’s covenant with Israel (14:21)

Jeremiah’s words are similar to the words prayed by the people of Judah in Jeremiah 14:7-9. But, this time it does not work. The Lord has already made his decision and the process of judgment has begun.

The people of Judah are praying because judgment is moving into their lives. They are feeling the
early stages of the social confusion, the economic collapse and the pains of famine have set in. (Jeremiah 14:1-6)

The Lord tells Jeremiah that no prayer or repentance can save this people. The judgment has been decreed and the decision for each of individual has been decided. (This is not speaking of predestination, but of a judicial sentence that has now been decreed.)

This calamity is not a matter of faith or a need for more fervent prayer. The Lord says that even if
men who prayed like Moses and Samuel (both of whom received answers to prayer for a
generation of people that the Lord had announced judgment) where now interceding the
decision to send judgment has already been made and the process has begun.

All that is left now is the manifestation of the judgment decreed. The people may ask the prophet:
"If the Lord is not going to answer, where should we go?" (Jeremiah 15:2-3).
The Lord gives them a very sarcastic answer:

  • Those who have been sentenced to death should go to death
  • Those who have been sentenced to death by the sword should go to the sword
  • Those who have been sentenced to death by starvation should go to starvation
  • Those who have been sentenced to be taken captive into Babylon should go to Babylon

For the individuals in Jeremiah’s generation things are hopeless!
God is not answering the prayers of this nation.

  Christian Quote from Church History
"According to Carl Sagan, the universe (cosmos) 'is all that is or ever was or ever will be.' However, the idea that the universe is all is not a scientific fact, but an assumption based upon materialistic naturalism. Since Carl Sagan's death in 1996, new discoveries in physics and cosmology bring into questions Sagan's assumption about the universe. Evidence shows that the constants of physics have been finely tuned to a degree not possible through human engineering."

Something to Ponder??

Cholera and Typhoid is transmitted by drinking contaminated water. With the advancement of modern science and the development of the twentieth-century sanitation the impact of these diseases fell sharply. When God was establishing rules and guidelines for his new nation of Israel in Leviticus 11:33-36 he forbid them to drink stagnant, standing water or water in a vessel that had been in contact with a dead animal.
