"Then the Lord said unto me, Proclaim all these words in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, saying, Hear ye the words of this covenant, and do them."
Continued 1st section of 2 sections in this chapter, verses 1 - 17;
Then the Lord said unto me, Proclaim all these word in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, - word/phrase study - And God said/spoke (2); word study - all the words that start with "P", proclaim; word study - all; God declares to Jeremiah the prophet, his responsibility and duty to speak His words to His people about their covenant. They are to hear the word of the Lord. They are to know what God has said and remind them of what they had said. God gives Jeremiah the directive of what to do, Proclaim. And God directs Jeremiah where to do this, the place, cities and streets of Judah and Jerusalem. God will give them one more moment of invitation and opportunity to respond rightly. This is God's mercy and lovingkindness reaching out to them to hear and respond before it is too late.
The duty, privilege, opportunity and responsibly of every church and Christian is the same, proclaim and go. Proclaim what? Proclaim the Gospel; teach the people the covenants of God. Proclaim the whole Word of God; for faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Go where? Go in to Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and unto the uttermost parts of the world. Go near and go far with the Gospel. Go to those you know and those you don't know; but go. It is the confession of most Christians and churches of this day, they don't proclaim the whole counsel of God, nor do they know the counsel of God. Ravenhill: "WE don't know the Word of God, nor do we know the God of the Word.": Confession from far too many is they do not proclaim to their loved ones, their friends. It is as great a sin of this hour of prayerlessness as that of silence from Christians. It is our prayer to give us boldness to proclaim and to go. We are to found obedient unto this heavenly calling.
