Babylon in The News: Famine

 Jer 50

“Do everything I have commanded you.

22The noise of battle is in the land,

the noise of great destruction!

23How broken and shattered

is the hammer of the whole earth!

How desolate is Babylon

among the nations!

24I set a trap for you, Babylon,

and you were caught before you knew it;

you were found and captured

because you opposed the Lord.

25The Lord has opened his arsenal

and brought out the weapons of his wrath,

for the Sovereign Lord Almighty has work to do

in the land of the Babylonians.

26Come against her from afar.

Break open her granaries;

pile her up like heaps of grain.

Completely destroy her

and leave her no remnant.

27Kill all her young bulls;

let them go down to the slaughter!

Woe to them! For their day has come,

the time for them to be punished.

Who else in the history of the world could be called (legitimately) the hammer of the whole earth?  From North to South and East to West from the farthest reaches in each direction Babylon has exerted its influence.

Now, concerning Babylon in the news today, the war on our food supply.  The Lord told us above in Jer 50 what would happen.  The key to understanding all this is its no one or two things written about Babylon taking place in our headline news, its everything...

We need to pray.  We need the Lord's guidance and His strength.  The events around us make alot more sense when you consider it all is a Divine trap set for Babylon.  None of us would want to live in Babylon at the time of its judgement but we are here serving at our Lord's pleasure in the season He has ordained for us.  We are here for a reason so come what may, let us be found doing our job and doing that while in constant communication with Him about what to do, where to go and what to say on a daily basis.

We will need our Lord's help more than ever before for the days ahead.

Glory to God

grace and peace
