Jeremiah prophesied for over forty years.

Jeremiah's message was primarily violence and outrage. He became extremely unpopular and according to tradition was killed by his own people. The nation seemed to listen to him at first, but later they refused to repent and therefore died in their sins.

By worldly standards, Jeremiah lived and died a failure. By God's standards, Jeremiah was victorious because he remained faithful.
