The contextual and situational intensity of the prophecies and events which take place before, within, and after Jeremiah 14:1-17:18 are exceedingly profound. In a staggering series of events before and within this situation, we see: an incomplete revival, a completely successful apostasy, an unprepared Prophet, a deviation from Covenantal Ideals, and a Redemptive Purpose that is largely unexplained. Having just personally confronted King Jehoiakim (Jer. 36:29-31), the LORD does herein confront the false Prophets who had roused themselves in partnership with and in confirmation of the King’s apostate actions (Jer. 14:12-18). These two, the King and the false Prophets, were the primary mediums through which damnation was secured.
