All nations are accountable to the Lord

People often say that the Old Testament was only for Israel, but consider what the Lord had Jeremiah do, after telling the prophet to take a wine cup of the Lord’s fury from His hand,

“Then I took the cup from the Lord’s hand, and made all the nations drink, to whom the Lord had sent me: Jerusalem and the cities of Judah, its kings and its princes, to make them a desolation, an astonishment, a hissing, and a curse, as it is this day; Pharaoh king of Egypt…all the kings of the land of Uz, all the kings of the land of the Philistines…Edom, Moab, and the people of Ammon; all the kings of Tyre, all the kings of Sidon, and the kings of the coastlands which are across the sea; Dedan, Tema, Buz, and all who are in the farthest corners; all the kings of Arabia…all the kings of Zimri, all the kings of Elam, and all the kings of the Medes; all the kings of the north, far and n ear, one with another; and all the kingdoms of the world which are on the face of the earth…” (Jeremiah 25:17-26).

Every nation needs to know the God revealed in the Old Testament, that everyone may know the Son of God revealed in the New Testament, because He can deliver us from the wrath to come upon the whole world.
