I will give them singleness of heart and action, so that they will always fear me for their own good and the good of their children after them. I will make an everlasting covenant with them: I will never stop doing good to them, and I will inspire them to fear me, so that they will never turn away from me. I will rejoice in doing them good and will assuredly plant them in this land with all my heart and soul.
Nine times God says, "I will", and much of this is yet unfulfilled prophecy. Some of it is even now in the process of being fulfilled: the planting the Jews back in the land with all God's heart and soul. We see this playing out in the news daily, even as many powerful political leaders attempt to stop it with the "peace process" and the "road map". So even though Jeremiah's possession of the deed was a token indicating return from Babylonian captivity, it is even a stronger indicator of the modern return and restoration.
Once we understand this, the additional details provided in the story suggest what I think may be an exciting future discovery. Look at the description of the transaction: "So I bought the field at Anathoth from my cousin Hanamel and weighed out for him seventeen shekels of silver. I signed and sealed the deed, had it witnessed, and weighed out the silver on the scales.
I took the deed of purchase--the sealed copy containing the terms and conditions, as well as the unsealed copy-- and I gave this deed to Baruch son of Neriah, the son of Mahseiah, in the presence of my cousin Hanamel and of the witnesses who had signed the deed and of all the Jews sitting in the courtyard of the guard. If those copies of the deed, placed in a clay jar according to God's instructions so that they would last a long time, are primarily symbolic of end-times developments, specifically, the promise of the modern repossession of all the covenant land, then that jar may yet be found!
It is never again mentioned in the Bible; there is no indication it was ever rediscovered. Why would God tell the prophet to preserve the deed copies to "last a long time" unless they are destined to be discovered? Therefore, I will make a daring prediction: this actual deed of Jeremiah's transaction will one day be found! If so, it will be a spectacular, stunning witness to the infallibility of God's promises. It will also be a stern, irrefutable Divine rebuke to the arrogant parties who now shamelessly try to wrest that land from Israel.
If I was in Israel now myself, I would start looking around caves near Anathoth for the clay jar containing those copies of the deed. That discovery, if it happens, may be the most sensational archaeological find ever , especially given its direct relevance to the most critical political issue of our day. Now while purchasing usually is better than renting, renting in Jerusalem is not a bad deal.
And at a time like this, when Israel is becoming increasingly isolated in the world and international investors are pulling out their money, one has to wonder whether real estate can fall much further. But I believe that God has called us to be a prophetic voice to this nation. And just as Jeremiah bought property at the worst of times to bring a message of hope, I believe we should do the same.
Buy The Field
He actually bought land that was virtually worthless, and we discover that Jeremiah never did get to enjoy his property personally. But his investment paid another kind of dividend. Jeremiah spoke to the nation at its darkest hour, as a man of hope who practiced what he preached. Taxes are killing my business. The finance minister needs to go. And it is our plan to buy his property — at a time when fewer and fewer people believe that the land of Israel is going to have increasing value — that is giving him hope.
What is your perspective these days concerning Israel and Jerusalem? Are you hopeful or are you beginning to doubt the promises of God?
Enduring Word Bible Commentary Jeremiah Chapter 32
Are you taking concrete steps to increase your investment in this land, whether this means investing time, investing efforts to build relationships with the people of this land, or even — as some of you are doing — investing your money in this land, in the hope that God will bless this land in spite of the dark clouds on the horizon?
Someone once asked the famous evangelist Billy Graham if he was an optimist or a pessimist. God is restoring His people. He has been bringing His people back to this land. He is keeping his promises. The people of this nation are looking for a sign of optimism, a sign of hope.
You and I have true hope. Our hope is in God. Our hope is in the covenant promises of the God of Israel, who disciplines His people, but not for their destruction, rather to cause them to fulfill their destiny.

My message is simply this: To be a prophetic people among the nation of Israel we need to bring a message of hope. Besides merely speaking, being a prophetic voice means taking tangible steps that prove that we have thrown in our lot with this nation. A prophetic people are willing to work alongside this nation, willing to sacrifice for this nation, and willing to invest in this nation.
