God’s Word is eternal and cannot be destroyed nor changed. We saw in the book of Jeremiah where the prophet was commanded by God to write His words on a roll of paper of the coming judgements upon Israel, Judah and all the nations if they had refused to repent and return to the true and living God.ย

Jeremiah’s scribe Baruch wrote down all the words the Lord filled the prophet’s mouth with on the roll for at that time the prophet was shut up (imprisoned) in the king’s court and couldn’t go down to the house of the Lord to deliver the imminent message from the Lord, so he requested Baruch to go and he obeyed. {See verses 5-8}ย

Baruch went and read the words of the Lord’s prophecies before Gemariah the son of Shaphan in the house of the Lord before all the people that were gathered there on the fasting day.

Upon reading it Michaiah the son of Gemeriah requested him to bring the book that he read from unto the princes so that he can read it unto them. {See verses 11-15}

After he read it they got afraid and vowed to go tell the king.

They then enquired how he wrote the words and Baruch explained it to them as seen in verse 18 above.ย 

The princes then told Baruch for him and the prophet to go and hide and let no man know where they be, from the hands of death that were upon them at that moment but the greater hand of the Lord was upon them that delivered them from the hands of their enemies.

The princes went in unto the king without the words of the Lord in their hand but from in their heart as they told it to him. I can tell that they were sore afraid. The king probably didn’t believe them, so that’s why he sent Jehudi to bring the roll from out of the chamber of Elishama; where the princes had placed it. {See verses 19-21}

When Jehudi began reading the words to him he took a penknife and sliced the pages into pieces and casted them into the fire as it consumed all the words of the Lord. {verses 22-23}ย  This was a very disrespectful and petty reaction of the king. Due to that behavior it shows that he was convicted by the truth that he didn’t displayed from the outside but inwardly he was afraid. The others that stood with him were afraid inwardly too I’m sure although they didn’t show it outwardly. {verse 24}

The king disobeyed the command Elnathan, Delaiah & Gemariah gave him not to burn the scroll in {verse 25} We see pride here and also the hardness of his heart.

He ordered some of his men to get rid of Baruch and Jeremiah but God hid them. {verse 25}ย  This made things worse for the house of Israel and Judah as it already was.

We saw in the ending verses where God commanded his prophet to go and take another roll and write the same words He told him to write before and where we saw the king’s fatal punishment was added to it.

You see, none can’t change God’s word nor destroy it. It’s eternal. What He says goes and no one can stop His will from being fulfilled. In this world there are many nowadays Jehoiakim’s that is trying to expel God’s holy laws for it testify of their sins and the sins of the nations, for it’s the ONLY truth that can set all free. But sadly they’ll be very unsuccessful and will be judged justly by God if they don’t repent from their wickedness; for none can destroy His eternal words of life and salvation. Glory to God! โค Thank you Jesus! ๐Ÿ˜€ย
