No Cure Exists Against the Lord's Curse

Jeremiah 46 speaks of the Lord’s judgment against Egypt. Verse 2 reveals that Nebuchadnezzar had defeated the Egyptian army at the Euphrates River. The whole thing was of the Lord, who gave this command, “Order the buckler and shield, and draw near to battle…for this is the day of the Lord GOD of hosts, a day of vengeance, that He may avenge Himself on His adversaries” (Jeremiah 46:3-10).
The destruction coming from Babylon against Egypt would be so overwhelming that nothing could help. Therefore, the Lord said further,
“Go up to Gilead and take balm,
O virgin, the daughter of Egypt;
In vain you will use many medicines;
You shall not be cured.”
(Jeremiah 46:11, 12)
When the Lord strikes, we have no invention to prevent it. The only cure is repentance.
