The 70-Year Captivity Foretold

The Lord sent prophets to Judah constantly, looking for the nation to repent of their sins. However, they would not turn from their sins. Therefore, Jeremiah told the nation what Yahweh of hosts said, “‘Because you have not heard My words, behold, I will send and take all the families of the north,’ says the LORD, ‘and Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, My servant, and will bring them against this land…'” The Lord explained that the Babylonians would so destroy Judah that it would become an astonishment and a hissing, that no more sounds of celebration would be heard in it, and that the Babylonians would carry captives back to Babylon and keep them there seventy years (Jeremiah 25:8-11).
It happened according to the words of the prophet.
The Lord has told us another destruction is on the way. This time it will be global. At that time He will send Jesus, who will gather up all His elect, but He will send to everlasting punishment those who, just like Judah, would not obey the words of the Lord.
Are you prepared for that day?
