The prophets prophesy falsely, And the priests rule by their own power; And My people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end? Jeremiah 5:31
None righteous; 5:1-31 Jeremiah searches desperately through the streets of Jerusalem for one righteous person. But there is none to be found. Judgment on such a nation and people is a moral necessity! Like a ravaged grape arbor, or a woods consumed by a forest fire, Judah will crumble. Yet even the coming cataclysm will not destroy all. When at last God’s people, captives in a foreign land, pause to ask “Why?” they will recall Jeremiah’s message. The judgment has come because Judah forsook the Lord to serve foreign gods, and as a result slipped into a life of wickedness and evil.
⇒ Now I understand why Jeremiah was a “weeping” prophet. All Christians should be weeping like him in this post-Christian times.
