Babylon gets theirs

Jeremiah 50:1-3 (JDV)

Jeremiah 50:1 This is the word Yahveh spoke about Babylon, the land of the Chaldeans, through the prophet Jeremiah:
Jeremiah 50:2 Report to the nations; announce and raise up a signal flag; announce it, and hide nothing. Say, “Babylon is captured; Bel is put to shame; Marduk is terrified.” Her idols are put to shame; her false gods, devastated.
Jeremiah 50:3 You see, a nation from the north will attack her; it will make her land desolate. No one will be living in it – both people and animals will run away.

Babylon gets theirs

Nobody expected Jeremiah to say something like this. He was widely criticized because he had predicted that his own nation would be defeated, captured and exiled by the mighty armies of Nebuchadnezzar.

But God was going to use Babylon to render his punishment to all the nations. When their time came, they would get theirs too.

Fast forward to the New Testament. The book of Revelation speaks of the destruction of Babylon. It is a symbol of all the terrible means whereby God would judge the nations through other nations during this age. But at the end, even the great Babylon will get theirs.

When God sets up his new sky and land, there will be no Babylon the Great. All means of destruction will be destroyed, then our God will be all in all.

Lord, thank you for your eventual destruction of all things that destroy.
