This is the first characteristic of Babylon. Harlot is an outdated word for prostitute, a woman who has sex for money; but sometimes the Bible uses this word figuratively to describe spiritual harlotry, which is the abandoning of our first love, a pure, genuine faith, and faithfulness to God.

The Early Church was born pure and remained pure for as long as it was persecuted by Roman emperors.

But the devil changed his strategy when he saw that the more he persecuted and killed Christians, the more they grew in numbers and in faith.

From the moment on, the Church plunged into the Dark Ages. It did not follow the Gospel proclaimed by the Lord Jesus and His apostles and turned into a cruel and profane religious system.

“Perhaps the Lord will deal with us according to all His wonderful works.”

This was the king’s desire, but he and the people were more concerned about being delivered from their why they received a big “No” for an answer and also heard from the prophet that the most High would fight against them with an outstretched hand and with a strong arm, even in anger and fury and great wrath!

The indignation of the Lord against Judah was so deep that He called Nebuchadnezzar “My servant” to complete that mission (25:9). It is foolish to disobey the Most High, for those who oppose Him become His enemy, and this means having no chance to prevail (Isa. 42.13).

Jeremiah 20: The Word of God to Pashhur

Published

on

Pashhur was a common name at the time and also a title indicating a high position inside of the Temple. The son of the priest immer had this title, which meant that he was a descendant of an important lineage of priests from the time of David (1 Chron. 24.14).

Pashhur used his authority to order the guards of the silence to prophet by condemning him hastily, for he was denouncing the sins of the religious leaders.

Jeremiah was arrested, beaten, and put on the stocks to be tortured, but he remained steadfast.

So not even all the suffering, injustices, and mistreatments were able to make the prophet’s faithfulness and zeal diminish.

On the contrary, he was courageous to raise his voice and say that everyone was on their way to destruction. As for the unrighteous Pashhur, he attracted the wrath of God. In addition to going into captivity, he, his family, and friends were violently killed (v.4).
