Old Testament: Jer 36.29–31
To read the Bible in a year, read Jeremiah 36–37 on November 3, In the year of our Lord Christ 2020
By Don Ruhl
The Lord had Jeremiah dictate the word to Baruch who wrote down the messages that we now have as the Book of Jeremiah. Then the Lord wanted Baruch to take the scroll and to read it to the leaders of Judah. When the king heard it, he cut up the scroll and threw it into the fire. Not a good thing to do!
And you shall say to Jehoiakim king of Judah, “Thus says the LORD: You have burned this scroll, saying, ‘Why have you written in it that the king of Babylon will certainly come and destroy this land, and cause man and beast to cease from here?’” Therefore thus says the LORD concerning Jehoiakim king of Judah: “He shall have no one to sit on the throne of David, and his dead body shall be cast out to the heat of the day and the frost of the night. I will punish him, his family, and his servants for their iniquity; and I will bring on them, on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and on the men of Judah all the doom that I have pronounced against them; but they did not heed.’”
– Jeremiah 36.29–31
The king of Judah learned that you do not destroy the word of God. Yet, the world has not learned this lesson. Many scribes over the years have made copies of the Scriptures for us, and the world tries constantly to silence the word of God, but it will never work, and eventually the word of God will silence them.
