Today's reading Jeremiah 23:9- Jeremiah 33:22
"And the word of the Lord came unto Jeremiah saying." Jeremiah 33:19 KJB
Jeremiah was God's prophet and he was trying to convince the Israelites that what he was saying was true. He had two obstacles though:
1. The news he was telling them was not good news. They had to go to Babylon and be in bondage.
2. Hananiah, another prophet, was saying that what Jeremiah was saying was not from the Lord. Which the people liked hearing.
Now today we do not have to wonder if what we are hearing is from God or not because we have God's words in the King James Bible. We can compare what we are hearing to what God has told us in his Bible and then we will know the truth. Even if it is something we do not want to hear.
