Exile Is Coming! Word Search
Jeremiah was a prophet to the southern kingdom of Judah for a while before and after 600 B.C. He lived during the tumultuous time leading up to and following the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple. Jeremiah was called on by God to deliver a very unpopular message. “Destruction is coming! Exile is coming!” The final destruction inevitably did come when Jerusalem and the temple were destroyed and only a few people escaped deportation to Babylon. Jeremiah saw it all, and while he escaped deportation, he was finally carried to Egypt (against his will) by other surviving Jews where he continued his unhappy ministry of prophecy against God’s sinful people and its leaders as well as Egypt itself.
