God is going to speak what He has already spoken. Apostle asked, “Why did Jeremiah have to send a letter to those that were in Babylon?” The answer, because Hananiah spoke falsely to the people, telling them that the king of Babylon’s yoke upon them would be broken in two years. When in fact, God had already spoken about them remaining there for 70 years.
As it was in their day, even so it is in our day. We are going through circumstances and situations, but God won’t bring us out until we have learned what we need to learn. This prophet told them not to believe what Jeremiah said. They had the assurance that God would bring them out but not until the time he had set. When we want relief from what we are going through, often, we will believe a lie, just like the people believed the lie of Hananiah. Keep in mind, when we make decisions and plans based upon a lie, then everything that is birthed from that lie is false. We must know, just like Jeremiah, that we are anchored in what God has spoken, and don’t allow anyone to add to that truth.
