Jeremiah 49-50 The Bible once again proves to be true. Jeremiah prophesies against the nations surrounding Israel for their aggression against her when she needed help against King Nebuchadnezzar. Centuries later, when Saddam Hussein was in power in Iraq, he saw himself as a modern reincarnation of Nebuchadnezzar. To prove it, he spent millions building a massive reconstruction of Babylon. But, as Jeremiah prophesied, Babylon would never be rebuilt but be a habitation of jackals. “For out of the north a nation has come up against her, which shall make her land desolation, and none shall dwell in it; both man and beast shall flee away.” [Jer 50:3] One of the tour guides laments; history is a poignant reminder; nothing built by men lasts forever.
Men seek to play God, and God reminds us over and over:He will never share his glory with another. [Is 42:8] Again, Psa 20:7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
Where do you put your trust?
