Jeremiah was a hero. God called him to be a prophet to the nations (Jeremiah 1:5). For 40 long years Jeremiah had spoken to God’s people, but no one paid attention. He was opposed, persecuted and imprisoned. With no sign of a successful ministry, God then directs him to speak to the nations (Jeremiah 46:1-2, 47:1, 48:1, 49:1, 7, 23, 28, 34). Jeremiah’s point is clear – God is over all nations. There is a clear message for us too!
