The Consequences of Persecuting God's Preachers

Jeremiah spoke the word of God. The priest, Pashhur, did not like what he heard. He struck Jeremiah and threw him into prison. This happened next, “And it happened on the next day that Pashhur brought Jeremiah out of the stocks. Then Jeremiah said to him, “The LORD has not called your name Pashhur, but Magor-missabib” (Jeremiah 20:3).
Magor-Missabib means, “Terror on every side.” Jeremiah explained to Pashhur what those terrors would be. He would be a terror to himself, to his friends, and he would witness the killing of his friends. God would give Judah to Babylon, and Pashhur would die in Babylon, because he had stopped Jeremiah from prophesying and Pashhur had prophesied lies (Jeremiah 20:4-6).
I do not recommend that you persecute anyone who speaks the word of God!
