Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, saying, Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me? Jeremiah 32:26 NKJV
Yes, I will rejoice over them to do them good, And I will assuredly plant them in this land, with all My heart and with all My soul. Jeremiah 32:41 NKJV
God judged the nation of Israel. God gave Israel into the hands of the Chaldeans. God spoke through Jeremiah the prophet. He would send the King and many of the people of Israel into captivity in Babylon.
God instructed Jeremiah to buy property in Jerusalem. Jeremiah did not understand.
Why would God tell Jeremiah to by property in a city that would be conquered by a merciless enemy? The Chaldeans would not honor Jeremiah’s property rights. Jeremiah prayed for understanding.
God told Jeremiah He would gather His people together and bring them back into the land the Lord gave them. The people of God would dwell in safety again. God said, “They shall be My people, and I will be their God.”
