Prophetic Witness - March 2013
by Jon Ikin
How many times have you or I ever been confused with the Lord Jesus Christ? Not as many times as we would like, that's for sure! Yet when the Lord Jesus asked His disciples who men thought He was, they said, "... Jeremiah or one of the prophets." (Matt. 16: 14). That spoke well of Jeremiah, didn't it? The people evidently saw things in the Lord Jesus that reminded them of him. In this short article we are going to examine some of the amazing parallels between the Lord Jesus and this great Old Testament prophet, so that we can also appreciate just how much this man was a foreshadow of our Saviour.
First of all, Jeremiah was evidently a man chosen by God for his ministry. In Jer.1:4-5 we read, "Then the LORD came to me, saying: 'Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations. "' Here we see the Lord revealing something of His eternal plan to Jeremiah, which included setting him apart to be His inspired spokesman to Israel and even the Gentile nations (Jer.25)! He was a man chosen by God. 'Appointed and anointed,' as we might say.
