What is In the Old Testament "FOR" us?
September 30, 2007
In It "FOR" Us?
Now all these things happened unto them
for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition,
upon whom the ends of the world are come.
I Corinthians 10:11
whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning,
we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
"Ensamples" from whom to learn, not
for us to follow!
Buys a Field
This was a year
before Jerusalem fell. The burning of the city and desolation of Judah
was almost at hand. Amid the gloom and despair of the hour, Jeremiah
was commanded of God to buy a field, in public ceremony, and to put away
the deed for safe keeping, to emphasize his prediction that the captives
would return, and the land again be cultivated.
to Jeremiah's prayer
Note the new covenant
- 31:31-34 -
Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant
with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to
the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them
by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they
brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:
But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel;
After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts,
and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be
my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour,
and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know
me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD; for
I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
Prison Time of Jeremiah Under Zedekiah
didn't like Jeremiah
hands of the men of war
he did not seek
the welfare of this people, but the hurt!
him in prison - sunk in the mire!
Another of Jeremiah's
Helpers - Ebed-melech the Ethiopian
with the Kings permission
wants to hear from God, through Jeremiah
Secretly, of course
the typical response
Then Jeremiah said unto Zedekiah, If
I declare it unto thee, wilt thou not surely put me to death? and
if I give thee counsel, wilt thou not hearken unto me?
- Keep it quiet, Jeremiah - and if anyone does ask, keep the main content
away from them!
... the matter was not perceived - so he kept it quiet.
II Kings 25:7
- And they slew the sons of Zedekiah before
his eyes, and put out the eyes of Zedekiah, and bound him with fetters
of brass, and carried him to Babylon.
- Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God
of Israel, of Ahab the son of Kolaiah, and of Zedekiah the son of Maaseiah,
which prophesy a lie unto you in my name; Behold, I will deliver them into
the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon; and he shall slay them before
- And Zedekiah king of Judah shall not
escape out of the hand of the Chaldeans, but shall surely be delivered
into the hand of the king of Babylon, and shall speak with him mouth to
mouth, and his eyes shall behold his eyes;
- Then the king of Babylon slew the sons
of Zedekiah in Riblah before his eyes: also the king of Babylon slew all
the nobles of Judah.
- Moreover he put out Zedekiah's eyes,
and bound him with chains, to carry him to Babylon.
- And the king of Babylon slew the sons
of Zedekiah before his eyes: he slew also all the princes of Judah in Riblah.
- Then he put out the eyes of Zedekiah;
and the king of Babylon bound him in chains, and carried him to Babylon,
and put him in prison till the day of his death.
