Jeremiah was sent by God to pronounce judgment upon Judah and to offer a way of escape for those who would listen. But at every step, Jeremiah found himself at odds with the popular false prophets who promised peace and prosperity for Jerusalem. It's easy to see why they were popular. In the same way, the simple Gospel of Christ suffering God's wrath for sinners is a stumbling block to those who are proud and in love with their sin. It's much easier to find a prophet who will speak ear tickling falsehoods. But God's people must reject these wolves and keep on proclaiming Christ without fear.
