by Rev Joel Yong
Neither the kings of the earth nor anyone living on earth could believe that enemies or invaders would ever get through the gates of Jerusalem. They got through because of the sins of Jerusalem’s prophets and the crimes of its priests, who spilled the blood of righteous people within it.
Once an impenetrable fortress- the city now lies in ruins.
The prophet is clear.
It happened only because of Israel’s sin.
Not because of the military prowess of the enemy.
He is clear.
A city’s success or failure is dependent upon God. He raises it up or wills its destruction.
People would do well to remember this and honor God for who He is.
Rather than mock Him and treat Him as if He is blind or deaf to what they do.
We reap what we sow.
