To speak for God in a world that hates Him is a daunting task. Jeremiah was called from his birth to speak for God. The more that culture turns from God, the more unpopular speaking God’s Word is.
Jeremiah was under a death threat because he spoke God’s judgment on Jerusalem. These Old Testament prophets had to bring unpopular messages but when people rejected the message, it did not mean the message was untrue.
When God speaks, even through His servants, it is truth. Never get to the point that you ignore God’s Word and go your own way. It will only end in destruction. Israel learned this time and time again.
