Putting the Word into Action

Jeremiah began to hear from the LORD during the 13th year of Josiah's reign and he continued to receive his prophecies even five months after the first captives of Jerusalem had been taken away. Remember that Josiah was the king who instituted reforms and revival in Judah and who was told by God that he would not witness the destruction from Babylon. This means that Jeremiah prophesied for several years before the calamity. He prophesied in the time of revival and he prophesied in the time of trouble. That's because the message does not change no matter what the times! We have a message to tell also. We need to spread the word to everyone we know to repent because the kingdom of heaven is at hand. We might appear to be just as insubordinate as Jeremiah, but God does not fret over political situations.
