It's Your Choice Lesson Scripture: Jeremiah 7:1-15 By the end of this lesson, we should ? Recognize the God holds the individual and the leaders accountable. ? Repent from evil and resolve to do better. ? Rejoice that God always gives us hope. Background: Israel, the Northern Kingdom, was crushed by the Assyrians in 722 BC. Many prophets from God warned them to repent but the warnings fell on deaf ears. At the same time. God sent prophets to Judah, the Southern Kingdom, with the same message. The prophets spoke to the kings, priests, judges, and false prophets because they were responsible for the masses. Now don't get too comfortable because the mes sage applied to the people as well. God gave humanity a brain and a heart to be used in all situations! Previous lessons this quarter delved into the spe cific sins of the people. Jeremiah's prophecy began sometime between 640-609 BC and lasted beyond Judah's fall in 586 BC. Often called "the weeping prophet" he expressed his sorrow publically over Judah's actions and her fate. They must turn trom evil or be captured by Babylon. Jeremiaih's sermon today was given during one of the Jewish festivals where the people traveled to Jerusalem to worship in the Temple.
