Almost all of the prophesies that Jeremiah has delivered until these two chapters were fulfilled long ago. But as you listened to chapters 31 and 32 today, you probably heard some things that made you say, “I don’t think that has happened yet.” And you would be right.
God gave Jeremiah prophecies of the New Covenant. Yes, THE New Covenant. The promise of salvation through faith in the Redeemer. Of course, that was begun with the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus.
And also, there were prophecies of the perfect unity of mankind. For certain, that has not yet happened on planet Earth, has it? But it is coming when Jesus returns, a day that is coming at some time in the future. A future that I believe is getting close, my brothers and sisters. And given the divisions and hatred that is rampant all around the world at this point in our history, now would be a good time. Of course, God knows the time and his timing is always perfect, but I’m saying, “Oh Lord. How long must we wait?”
