Babylon found its doom

Jeremiah Bible Background

11.09.2017 – Old Testament: Jer 51.27–32

To read the Bible in a year, read Jeremiah 51–52 on November 9, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

The Lord used Babylon to punish the nations, such as Judah, but Babylon would soon suffer for its own sins,

Set up a banner in the land,
Blow the trumpet among the nations!
Prepare the nations against her,
Call the kingdoms together against her…

For every purpose of the LORD shall be performed against Babylon,
To make the land of Babylon a desolation without inhabitant…
(Jeremiah 51.27–32) 

And so it happened. No nation is too strong to withstand the Lord and His truth. If a nation sins and does not repent, it shall meet its end even as Babylon did.

Questions:

  • Do you pray for your nation?
  • What do you pray for on behalf of your nation?
