In the book of Deuteronomy, long before Jeremiah was called upon to prophesy, God gave His Word to a great leader by the name of Moses. In the 28th chapter of Deuteronomy we can read where God stipulated what would happen to His chosen people if they would obey His Word and what would happen if they chose not to obey His Word.
Knowing then that God will bless us when we obey by providing us a home with Him in heaven (Ephesians 1:3), and also knowing that we will be punished with everlasting destruction if we do not obey, what is the condition of our “Jerusalem?” Will it stand in eternity with God? Or will it fall, even though we have been warned and warned by God’s Word what will happen if we do not obey? The outcome of our “Jerusalem”(our soul) is totally up to us!
