I WILL SPEAK HIS NAME NO MORE
The mission to be a prophet, a speaker for God, can be a great burden. Many of them were cursed for their words and others were beaten, even killed. Jeremiah is a perfect metaphor for the suffering Christ. His book is highly introspective and often bitter about his calling. He says that he keeps making up his mind not to utter God's words. He cannot resist the call to prophecy. It is like a fire burning inside of him until the message is released. Several prophets expressed that same compulsion to preach.
