Pastors Corner 12-2-2012
Here are some clues to another person in the bible. He was the son of the priest Hilkiah who lived in Anathoth. According to a dictionary his name means, “whom Jehovah has appointed.” God saw him in his mothers womb and ordained him as a prophet. He told God that he could not speak because he was afraid of the people and the Lord touched his mouth with his hand. He prophesied the ruin of Jerusalem and that they would go into captivity. Irijah, who was a captain accused him of being a trader and had him put into a dungeon. After Nebuchadrezzar, the king of Babylon, conquer Jerusalem he freed him and sent him back home to his people. After this he wrote in a book all the evil that would come upon Babylon. This is just a little bit of all that the Lord revealed to him and the prophesies that he proclaimed for God. Who is this prophet?
