Word of God

Take again another scroll and write on it all the former words that were on the first scroll which Jehoiakim the king of Judah burned. Jeremiah 36:28

The Word of God was given to the Prophet Jeremiah who then had written down by Baruch, it was then read to King Jehoiakim who didn’t like what God had to say and burned it in his fireplace. According to the Bible King Jehoiakim was a wicked man (2 Kings 23:37) who was also guilty of killing prophet Uriah (Jeremiah 26:20-23)

So its no surprise King Jehoiakim would reject the Word of God and try to destroy it. The Kings followers were just as bad, as they showed no fear in Gods word and they didn’t react when he burned the scrolls (Jeremiah 36:23-24) However as we know, God will not be mocked, and his Word remains forever

And concerning Jehoiakim king of Judah you shall say, ‘Thus says the LORD, “You have burned this scroll, saying, ‘Why have you written on it that the king of Babylon will certainly come and destroy this land, and will make man and beast to cease from it?'” Jeremiah 36:29

God commanded the scroll to be rewritten, but he also God passed judgment down upon King Jehoiakim for his blasphemy. This prophecy came true as King Jehoiakim when the Babylonians overtook Jerusalem and Jehoiakims body was thrown over the city wall in a disgraceful death

The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever. Isaiah 40:8

Today there is still a lot of people like King Jehoiakim trying to remove and destroy the Word of God. But the Word of God will stand forever! Truth is truth, regardless if you try to ignore or deny it. 1+1 will always equal 2, just as the Word of God will always stand Amen!
