By Don Ruhl

Did you know that the Lord declared that something astonishing and horrible had happened in Israel? What situation could arise that the Lord would say something of that nature? Listen to Him as He directed Jeremiah to write to His people:

“An astonishing and horrible thing has been committed in the land: 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 5.30–31).

From prophet to priest to people, they were all corrupt and enjoyed being that way! Amazing. We may wonder how it could have gotten that way, but it did.


  • How is it that a once holy nation becomes corrupt?
  • What do you want preachers to do?
