4 Jeremiah 17 Outline Sin of idolatry (17:1-4) Jeremiah 17:1 The sin of Judah is written with a pen of iron, and with the point of a diamond: it is graven upon the table of their heart, and upon the horns of your altars;

6 Jeremiah 17 Outline Sin of ill-gotten gain (17:9-11) Jeremiah 17:11 As the partridge sits on eggs, and hatches them not; so he that gets riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool.

10 Jeremiah for Today We are like clay in the potter’s hand (Jer. 18:6; Rom. 9:21)
11 We are like clay in the potter’s hand Jeremiah 18:6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? Saith the Lord, behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.
12 We are like clay in the potter’s hand Romans 9:21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honor, and another unto dishonor?
13 Jeremiah for Today God’s wants all men to repent (Jer. 18:8; 2 Pet. 3:9)
14 God’s wants all men to repent Jeremiah 18:8 If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them.
15 God’s wants all men to repent 2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

17 Tophet (Topheth) in the valley of the son of Hinnom. Tophet was the place in that valley where the continual fires were kept up, in and through which they consecrated their children to Moloch. “Topheth” (fireplace, Isa.30:33) was a high place in the Valley of Hinnom just south of Jerusalem where child sacrifices were offered to Molech 2 Kings 23:10 “Topheth” in Jeremiah 7:31-32 and 19:6-14
18 “Topheth” in Jeremiah 7:31-32 and 19:6-14 Jeremiah 7:31 And they have built the high places of Tophet, which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my heart.
19 2 Kings 23:10 And he defiled Topheth, which is in the valley of the children of Hinnom, that no man might make his son or his daughter to pass through the fire to Molech. “Topheth” in Jeremiah 7:31-32 and 19:6-14
21 Isaiah 30:33 For Tophet is ordained of old; yea, for the king it is prepared; he hath made it deep and large: the pile thereof is fire and much wood; the breath of the Lord, like a stream of brimstone, doth kindle it. “Topheth” (fireplace, Isa.30:33) was a high place in the Valley of Hinnom just south of Jerusalem where child sacrifices were offered to Molech 2 Kings 23:10 “Topheth” in Jeremiah 7:31-32 and 19:6-14
22 Jeremiah for Today Doing something without God’s expressed permission is unauthorized and sinful (Jer. 19:5; Col. 3:17)
23 Without God’s permission is sinful Jeremiah 19:5 They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into my mind:
24 Without God’s permission is sinful Colossians 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
25 Jeremiah for Today God will break all who oppose him like pottery is broken (Jer. 19:11; Rev. 2:27)
26 God will break all who oppose him Jeremiah 19:11 And shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Even so will I break this people and this city, as one breaks a potter's vessel, that cannot be made whole again: and they shall bury them in Tophet, till there be no place to bury.
27 God will break all who oppose him Revelation 2:27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
28 Jeremiah 20 Outline Jeremiah’s persecution (20:1-6) Pashhur persecutes (20:1-2) Pashhur will be persecuted (20:3-6) Jeremiah’s passion (20:7-13) Jeremiah’s preaching (20:7-10) Jeremiah’s praise (20:11-13) Jeremiah’s pity (20:14-18) Jeremiah pities the day he was born (20:14-17) Jeremiah pities the day he preaches (20:18)
30 Preaching brings persecution Jeremiah 20:7-8 7 O Lord, thou hast deceived me, and I was deceived: thou art stronger than I, and hast prevailed: I am in derision daily, every one mocks me. 8 For since I spake, I cried out, I cried violence and spoil; because the word of the Lord was made a reproach unto me, and a derision, daily.
31 Preaching brings persecution 1 Corinthians 4:12-13 12 and labor, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it: 13 Being defamed, we entreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the off scouring of all things unto this day.
32 Jeremiah for Today We should have a burning desire to preach God’s word (Jer. 20:9; Ac. 4:20; 1 Cor. 9:20)
33 Burning desire to preach Jeremiah 20:9 Then I said I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.
34 Burning desire to preach Acts 4:20 For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard. 1 Corinthians 9:19 For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.
