October 4, Reading 2 – Jeremiah 37


Audio, Visual

SAA Notes

We think we’re in bad times with poor church attendance, rising crime and violence etc. Jeremiah lived in equally depressing times – even more so. He ended up in prison because of his faith. “Though troubles assail us and dangers affright, though friends should all fail us and foes all unite, yet one thing secures us: ‘the LORD will provide’.” John Newton

SJA Notes

* God Above, please show us here below Your word today.

“Where are your prophets who prophesied to you, saying, ‘The king of Babylon will not come against you and against this land’?”

There is truth and there is lie.

In today’s passage we see the reality of the dramatic difference between the two.

When the armies of Nebuchadnezzar were far off – The lies were abundant and EASY TO HEAR.

When the might of Babylon was near – What of the lies, those words like honey?

They were shown for the lie, the truth was clear.

And where were those who spoke the lies, the easy-to-hear words?


There is truth and there is lie.

For God’s people, what comes out of our mouths reflects on our King.

Are we speaking truth or lies today?

* God of Truth,

Please put within us Your Spirit, that we might discern what is true and what is not.

Please write Your word upon our, that it might show us the truth of who You are, who we are, of our desperate and utter need of You.

For Your word is TRUTH!

And Hallelujah for that!
