Prophecy --Prediction

Question: From which direction did God tell Jeremiah to warn Jerusalem and Judah that destruction would come?

2. True or false? Because of Judah's sins, God told Jeremiah to prophesy to them concerning their coming destruction, "Nevertheless in those days--- I will make a complete end of you."

3. Fill in the blank: To indicate to Jeremiah that He was ready to perform His word, God showed Jeremiah a branch of an ------- tree, the first to blossom in the spring.

1. The north (Jer. 4:6 )

2. False. "I will not make a complete end of you" (Jer. 5:18 )

3. Almond (Jer. 1:11). This was reminiscent of Aaron's rod which budded with almonds to confirm his priesthood over any challenger from another tribe (Num. 17:1-8 ).
