The prophets words, God’s words have been judgmental, even harsh; however here we can get a glimpse of a brighter future, and of the bigger picture; the picture which God always has in view.  This is a word of promise.  When you think about it; what good is a promise if there are not moments of judgment, darkness, and despair?

The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, “Thus speaks the LORD God of Israel, saying: ‘Write in a book for yourself all the words that I have spoken to you. For behold, the days are coming,’ says the LORD, ‘that I will bring back from captivity My people Israel and Judah,’ says the LORD. ‘And I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.’ ” Jeremiah 30:1-3 (NKJV)

Let me give you a study note from the PROPHECY STUDY BIBLE on Jeremiah 30:1-3…

“Jeremiah is specifically instructed by the Lord to write these things in a book.  This would include a scroll as noted in Jeremiah 36:2.  This prophecy concerning the return of Israel has in mind a still-future time when both the Northern and Southern Kingdoms will be fully restored to their land (Jer. 29:10; Amos 9:14; Rom. 11:26).  Israel’s possession of the land in this sense refers to the nation obediently keeping the land specifications of the Mosaic covenant.  This will take place during the Millennium.” PROPHECY STUDY BIBLE, pg. 789

GOD never has broken a promise.  He always keeps His word.  Not one word the LORD has spoken will ever fail.  Not one.  There is no longer a divided kingdom or kingdoms.  They were joined together when they returned from Babylon; but there  are Jewish people scattered all around the earth who will be restored to their Land of Promise.  Jesus even said,,,

“Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.” Luke 21:33; Mark 13:31; Matthew 24:35

If you do not believe Gods word, His promises, or His judgments; you do not believe Him, therefore you are His enemy.  However, He does love so much that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but will have everlasting life.
