Not only were the symbols of dreams and visions in accord with present reality, they were in accord with future events that God brought to pass. God has a plan of judgment for the wicked and a plan of redemption for those who trust in him, and he faithfully carries those plans out. The book also highlights the effectiveness of prayer as a means: 1 to discover the will of God; 2 to obtain courage to make a total commitment regardless of circumstances; 3 to obtain assurance that God will be with those in danger even unto death; 4 to confess one's own sins and the sins of one's people; and 5 to petition God for fulfillment of the prophecy of a previous prophet, in this case Jeremiah The book testifies that these prayers were heard and answered by a gracious God in his own remarkable way.
