Jeremiah 30:1
Deliverance from Captivity Promised

      1The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 2“Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, ‘Write all the words which I have spoken to you in a book. 3‘For behold, days are coming,’ declares the LORD, ‘when I will restore the fortunes of My people Israel and Judah.’ The LORD says, ‘I will also bring them back to the land that I gave to their forefathers and they shall possess it.’”

      4Now these are the words which the LORD spoke concerning Israel and concerning Judah:

      5“For thus says the LORD,
         ‘I have heard a sound of terror,
         Of dread, and there is no peace.

6‘Ask now, and see
         If a male can give birth.
         Why do I see every man
         With his hands on his loins, as a woman in childbirth?
         And why have all faces turned pale?

7‘Alas! for that day is great,
         There is none like it;
         And it is the time of Jacob’s distress,
         But he will be saved from it.

      8‘It shall come about on that day,’ declares the LORD of hosts, ‘that I will break his yoke from off their neck and will tear off their bonds; and strangers will no longer make them their slaves. 9‘But they shall serve the LORD their God and David their king, whom I will raise up for them.

10‘Fear not, O Jacob My servant,’ declares the LORD,
         ‘And do not be dismayed, O Israel;
         For behold, I will save you from afar
         And your offspring from the land of their captivity.
         And Jacob will return and will be quiet and at ease,
         And no one will make him afraid.

11‘For I am with you,’ declares the LORD, ‘to save you;
         For I will destroy completely all the nations where I have scattered you,
         Only I will not destroy you completely.
         But I will chasten you justly
         And will by no means leave you unpunished.’

12“For thus says the LORD,
         ‘Your wound is incurable
         And your injury is serious.

13‘There is no one to plead your cause;
         No healing for your sore,
         No recovery for you.

14‘All your lovers have forgotten you,
         They do not seek you;
         For I have wounded you with the wound of an enemy,
         With the punishment of a cruel one,
         Because your iniquity is great
         And your sins are numerous.

15‘Why do you cry out over your injury?
         Your pain is incurable.
         Because your iniquity is great
         And your sins are numerous,
         I have done these things to you.

16‘Therefore all who devour you will be devoured;
         And all your adversaries, every one of them, will go into captivity;
         And those who plunder you will be for plunder,
         And all who prey upon you I will give for prey.

17‘For I will restore you to health
         And I will heal you of your wounds,’ declares the LORD,
         ‘Because they have called you an outcast, saying:
         “It is Zion; no one cares for her.”’

Restoration of Jacob

18“Thus says the LORD,
         ‘Behold, I will restore the fortunes of the tents of Jacob
         And have compassion on his dwelling places;
         And the city will be rebuilt on its ruin,
         And the palace will stand on its rightful place.

19‘From them will proceed thanksgiving
         And the voice of those who celebrate;
         And I will multiply them and they will not be diminished;
         I will also honor them and they will not be insignificant.

20‘Their children also will be as formerly,
         And their congregation shall be established before Me;
         And I will punish all their oppressors.

21‘Their leader shall be one of them,
         And their ruler shall come forth from their midst;
         And I will bring him near and he shall approach Me;
         For who would dare to risk his life to approach Me?’ declares the LORD.

22‘You shall be My people,
         And I will be your God.’”

23Behold, the tempest of the LORD!
         Wrath has gone forth,
         A sweeping tempest;
         It will burst on the head of the wicked.

24The fierce anger of the LORD will not turn back
         Until He has performed and until He has accomplished
         The intent of His heart;
         In the latter days you will understand this.

Millions of voices of the dead Reply from heaven or hell. All these were living at the birth Of the departed year; They all have vanish'd from the earth, We fill their places here.

The Time of Trouble
"At that time shall Michael stand up, the great Prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, everyone that shall be found written in the book." Daniel 12:1. When the third angel's message closes, mercy no longer pleads for the guilty inhabitants of the earth. The people of God have accomplished their work. They have received "the latter

Light through Darkness
The dark years of destruction and death marking the end of the kingdom of Judah would have brought despair to the stoutest heart had it not been for the encouragements in the prophetic utterances of God's messengers. Through Jeremiah in Jerusalem, through Daniel in the court of Babylon, through Ezekiel on the banks of the Chebar, the Lord in mercy made clear His eternal purpose and gave assurance of His willingness to fulfill to His chosen people the promises recorded in the writings of Moses. That

The Twofold Testimony of John - the First Sabbath of Jesus's Ministry - the First Sunday - the First Disciples.
THE forty days, which had passed since Jesus had first come to him, must have been to the Baptist a time of soul-quickening, of unfolding understanding, and of ripened decision. We see it in his more emphasised testimony to the Christ; in his fuller comprehension of those prophecies which had formed the warrant and substance of his Mission; but specially in the yet more entire self-abnegation, which led him to take up a still lowlier position, and acquiescingly to realise that his task of heralding

God's People Delivered
When the protection of human laws shall be withdrawn from those who honor the law of God, there will be, in different lands, a simultaneous movement for their destruction. As the time appointed in the decree draws near, the people will conspire to root out the hated sect. It will be determined to strike in one night a decisive blow, which shall utterly silence the voice of dissent and reproof.

The Unseen Watcher
[This chapter is based on Daniel 5.] Toward the close of Daniel's life great changes were taking place in the land to which, over threescore years before, he and his Hebrew companions had been carried captive. Nebuchadnezzar, "the terrible of the nations" (Ezekiel 28:7), had died, and Babylon, "the praise of the whole earth" (Jeremiah 51:41), had passed under the unwise rule of his successors, and gradual but sure dissolution was resulting. Through the folly and weakness of Belshazzar, the grandson

Covenanting Provided for in the Everlasting Covenant.
The duty of Covenanting is founded on the law of nature; but it also stands among the arrangements of Divine mercy made from everlasting. The promulgation of the law, enjoining it on man in innocence as a duty, was due to God's necessary dominion over the creatures of his power. The revelation of it as a service obligatory on men in a state of sin, arose from his unmerited grace. In the one display, we contemplate the authority of the righteous moral Governor of the universe; in the other, we see
John Cunningham—The Ordinance of Covenanting

The interest of the book of Jeremiah is unique. On the one hand, it is our most reliable and elaborate source for the long period of history which it covers; on the other, it presents us with prophecy in its most intensely human phase, manifesting itself through a strangely attractive personality that was subject to like doubts and passions with ourselves. At his call, in 626 B.C., he was young and inexperienced, i. 6, so that he cannot have been born earlier than 650. The political and religious
