In between the Apostle Paul’s second letter to the Thessalonians and his first letter to Timothy we read one chapter of Proverbs and two chapters if Jeremiah.
Proverbs 15, Proverbs of Solomon. Solomon speaks of the value of following the LORD and the pursuit of righteousness and virtue as opposed to folly, pride and wickedness, all of which God hates.
Jeremiah 3. Israel was shamelessly unfaithful, yet God was merciful and called Israel to repent and return to the LORD.
Jeremiah 4. God made one final call for Israel to repent, but, and this is the prophecy, there would be an imminent invasion and the nation was to be doomed.
