“The Lord said to me, “Proclaim all these words in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem: ‘Obey the words of this covenant and carry them out.’” (Jeremiah 11:6)
God was concerned that the people of Israel might forget the terms of the covenant He had made with them and which they agreed to.
So to help them remember, he sent the prophets, so Israel could never claim they didn’t know what the terms are.
What can we take away from this?
“God keeps account of how long we have enjoyed the means of grace and how effective those means have been, how often we have been not only spoken to about our duty but also urged to do it.”
