Babylon Had the Chance

History shows that Babylon was one of the greatest empires ever on earth, but it no longer exists. The Lord said of the empire,
“We would have healed Babylon,
But she is not healed.
Forsake her, and let us go everyone to his own country;
For her judgment reaches to heaven and is lifted up to the skies.”
(Jeremiah 51:9)
Babylon could have lasted, and the Lord would have fixed her serious problems, but she wanted nothing to do with it, and so the Lord ordered people away from the empire, the city in particular.
We can say the same about people, that we do not have to fail in life, we can do well, if we follow the Lord and His prescriptions for life.
