Jeremiah 47:1 – 49:22
Judgement, Judgement, Judgement….
The nations around Israel are about to cop it.
At the hands of the Lord, because of their sin and their treatment of Israel.
47:7 But how can it rest when the LORD has commanded it, when he has ordered it to attack Ashkelon and the coast?”
48:26-27 Make her drunk, for she has defied the LORD. Let Moab wallow in her vomit; let her be an object of ridicule. Was not Israel the object of your ridicule? Was she caught among thieves, that you shake your head in scorn whenever you speak of her?
49:1-2 1 Concerning the Ammonites: This is what the LORD says: “Has Israel no sons? Has she no heirs? Why then has Molech taken possession of Gad? Why do his people live in its towns? 2 But the days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when I will sound the battle cry against Rabbah of the Ammonites; it will become a mound of ruins, and its surrounding villages will be set on fire. Then Israel will drive out those who drove her out,” says the LORD.
Praise God that gentiles (non -Jews) like me can be forgiven for our rejection of God, through God putting on flesh and taking the punishment that I/we deserve.
