You are listening to “When God Judges A Nation” sermon 5 of the series, “The Church in Babylon”
Jeremiah had been warning Judah for decades. Since the people did not hear and their leaders did not repent, judgment came. They had bought into the pleasing lies of false prophets, simultaneously persecuting the prophet of God who bore the truth.
The lessons for America are many. While we pray for revival in our land, a nation can reach a point of no return. We do not know if we have reached it, and so we must continue to pray for our nation and speak the truth, remembering that God will always stand with His people.
What comes to mind when you hear the name Babylon? Babylon is often used as a symbol of man’s rebellion against God. Thanks to their rebellion, the Jews were eventually carried off into Babylon, where they tried to maintain their faith in the midst of a pagan culture. These messages from the book of Jeremiah walk through what happened before the coming of the Babylonians and the destruction of Jerusalem. We will see parallels to our own nation; more importantly, we will look into our own hearts and see that we, like generations before us, must prepare for dark and difficult days. These messages are intended to motivate us to be faithful in a pagan culture that is under the judgment of God.
