23 Years (Jeremiah 25:3)
But alas how many listened and amended their ways and returned to God? “yet you have not listened to Me, says the Lord, that you might provoke Me to anger with the works of your hands to your own hurt” (25:7). As it is said of the prophets that they rise early and the Lord sends them (25:3). Why do prophets rise early? Early hours in the morning are the best times to listen to the voice of the Lord. Upon hearing the word of the Lord, the prophets will deliver what God tells them often at the risk of danger and at the threat of their lives due to a recalcitrant people.
