It's Your Choice

resolve to do better.
? Rejoice that God always

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

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.
