June 6, 2021 – Jeremiah 46-52

The book of Jeremiah ends with an historical note: “This is the number of the people whom Nebuchadnezzar carried away captive: in the seventh year, 3,023 Judeans; in the eighteenth year of Nebuchadnezzar he carried away captive from Jerusalem 832 persons; in the twenty-third year of Nebuchadnezzar, Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried away captive of the Judeans 745 persons; all the persons were 4,600” (52:28-30). So much trouble! For forty years, Jeremiah had told the people of the coming exile. He simply spoke the words that God gave him. The people and the kings seemed to think they could avoid the day of reckoning, but God had spoken through his prophet. God’s word is true!


In another time of trouble, several years ago, Dr. Albert Mohler wrote, “In the midst of so much trouble, the one who trusts in God finds in him a safe resting place. We must pray for our nation and communities.… And we must point to the cross.” The cross! We find our hope in the cross!


We used to wander alone and unloved

Searching for purpose

Where there was none

Now You've crowned us heirs and sons

This is the hope of the cross.


One life given for us

Mercy poured out from

The depths of His scars

One love conquering all

This is the hope of the cross. –“The Hope of the Cross”
