New Message of Restoration and Blessing
1. The call to pray and Jerusalem’s overthrow (Jeremiah 33:1-5 )
2. Future blessing and glory (Jeremiah 33:6-14 )
3. The Branch of Righteousness; Jerusalem’s new name (Jeremiah 33:15-18 )
4. Jehovah’s faithfulness (Jeremiah 33:19-26 )
Jeremiah 33:1-5 . Jeremiah is still in prison, as we learn from the first verse. The siege of Jerusalem is on. Then the Lord said, “Call unto Me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” What an offer and what an assurance! Then the Lord speaks of the great and mighty things, announcing first the overthrow of Jerusalem. The demolished houses of Jerusalem are coming to be used in the defense to serve against the mounds and the sword. There will be great slaughter. (The Hebrew text of Jeremiah 33:4 and Jeremiah 33:5 has many difficulties.)
Jeremiah 33:6-14 . The next great and mighty things revealed are the future blessings and glory. Health and cure, abundance of peace and truth, a complete return from the captivity of both Judah and Israel, cleansing from all their iniquity, complete forgiveness, all are promised; and let it be remembered none of these promises has been realized. Jeremiah 33:9-13 also concern the future restoration of the land and the city. What a day is yet to come when “the voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say, Praise the LORD of Hosts” is heard, when Zion sings her beautiful redemption songs. “Behold the days come, saith the LORD, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and the house of Judah.” The delay may be long and still deferred according to His eternal purposes; but at the appointed time these days will surely come.
Jeremiah 33:15-18 . “In those days” in the coming days, the days of blessing and glory, when Christ comes the second time, He, the Branch of Righteousness will occupy the throne of His father David. (See Luke 1:32 .) Then salvation for His people will have come, and the city will receive a new name, the name of Him whose glory covers it, “THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.” Likewise will the temple worship be restored. (See annotations on Ezekiel’s millennial temple.)
Jeremiah 33:19-26 . This is similar to Jeremiah 31:35 , etc. His gifts and calling are without repentance. The Davidic covenant stands. He does not cast away His people.
