Jeremiah's Service to His Nation.
Jeremiah was one of the last proph
ets of Judah. He saw the nation go
into the Rahylonlnn Captivity and Je
rusalem destroyed, after which he
went Into ICgypt. lie was a lonely,
misunderstood and unpopular prophet.
He was most bitterly hated and per
secuted. Ills own countrymen turned
against him. He was placed In stocks
and then thrown Into a horrible dun
geon from which he narrowly escaped
with his life. The teacher should glvo
u little sketch of his life. The ol
lowing Is suggested :
His Call (1:2-10).
His ConunNsion (1 :1Mf0.
His Sympathetic Heart (1:10).
1113 Croat Sorrows (10:1."-21).
,r. The Divine Power Winch I rged
Illni Forward and Sustained Him
Recauso he was called upon to
prophesy against his own nation and
nt tho conmand of God urged them to
surrender to the Rabylonlans, he was
regarded us n traitor guilty of treason
against his own nation.
I. The Rschnbltes' Test (vv. 1-.").
In tho da.vs of .leholaklm, the Lord
charged Jeremiah to bring the Reclia
blto Into the house of the Lord anil
test them regarding the drinking of
wine. This he did in n place when)
the pt-uplo might behold them, the aim
being to teach Judah by example.
Tho father of tho Rechahltes hail
given command that they should not
drink wine. Their filial obedience
put to shame the children of Judah
for their lnck of obedience. .Tonadah,
the father of the Rechahltes. was only
n man imt the one whose commands
Judah disregarded was the Almighty
God. their Creator and Snvlor. It Is
God's plan thnt every man he tested.
Relng a freo agent, he can have clutiy
ncter only through testing.
II. The Filial Loyalty of the Rec
habltes (vv. 0-11).
Though they were out of their own
country In the midst of a foreign peo
ple they refused to drink wine, de
claring that they had been true to tho
Instructions of Jonadah all their lives.
It is n fine thing when children re
member their fnthers and render
obedience to their commands.
III. The Loyalty of the Rechahltes
In Contrast With the Disloyalty of
Judah (vv. 12-10).
1. The Appeal (vv. IT?. 1 1). ITo
made the appeal on tlie basis of tho
filial loyalty of the Rechahltos. Ho
also reminded them thnt he had
spoken to them In person, rising up
early to do ?o.
2. The Ministry of the Prophets
(vv. l.r, 10). When the people fnllwl
to render obedience to God, ho sent
to them the prophets, who pleaded
with them to amend their ways hy
turning nway from their idols. Mat
thew Henry Indicates the points oC
contrast somewhat as follows: (1)
Tho Re-iinbltos were obedient to one
who was hut n man; the Jews dis
obeyed the Infinite nnd eternnl God.
(2) Jonadah was dead and could not
fcnovv of their disloyalty or correct
them for it. Clod Is nil-knowing nnd
lives forever and will punish for dis
obedience. (3) The Rechabltos were
never reminded of their obligations,
but God sent Ills prophets to speak
to Ills people. (!) Jonndah left the
charge but no estate to support the
charge, hut God gave the people n
goodly land and prospered them In It.
(ft) God never assigned Ills people n
task as hard as Jonadah's, hut God's
people disobeyed Him while tho
Rechahltes obeyed their father.
IV. Judgment Upon the Jews for
Disobedience (r. 17).
God declared thnt lie would bring
Judgment upon thorn according to
what He hnd snld. Judgment Is lnld
upon those who dlFobey and rebel
V. Reward of the Rechabltos for
Their Loyalty (vv. IS. 10).
Uecnuso they had been true to the
commnnds of Jonadah, they should
always have a representative before
God. God hns Mich a regard for filial
obedience that Ho lets no act go un.
