Judgment Arrived

For a long time the Lord had spoken through His prophets of the impending judgment against His people by means of the Babylonians. Then the time for delay had run out,
“Behold, the day!
Behold, it has come…
The time has come,
The day draws near.”
(Ezekiel 7:10-12)
The Jews pushed it to the limit and so the Lord could no longer tolerate them in the land, but had to remove them. As we know from both biblical and non-biblical sources, the Lord truly did send Babylon against His precious land, and the Jews paid a heavy price for their insistence on worshiping false gods.
He keeps His promises both of blessing and cursing. Which one do you want and what are you doing to be sure you receive what you want?
