“Then came the word of the LORD unto the prophet Jeremiah, saying, ‘Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; Thus shall ye say to the king of Judah, that sent you unto Me to enquire of Me; Behold, Pharaoh’s army, which is come forth to help you, shall return to Egypt into their own land. And the Chaldeans shall come again, and fight against this city, and take it, and burn it with fire.'” Jeremiah 37:6-8 (KJV)
When GOD speaks He is to be heard. The puppet king of Judah wanted to hear what God said, but he did not want to hear the above.
The words spoken above seems negative to the rebellious ear; but rest in this knowing that GOD fulfills, and performs every word He speaks; and that is positive.
