As Jeremiah begins to close out his book, God is using him to pronounce judgment upon all the nations that have practiced wickedness. The words of Jeremiah that were specifically assigned for the Egyptians were “the swift cannot flee away, nor the warrior escape” (Jeremiah 46.6). As I read these, I can’t help but be reminded of the judgment that this world will have when Christ returns. In the New Testament concerning judgment day, we see it will come as a “thief in the night” (Matthew 24.43; I Thessalonians 5.2; Revelation 16.15). We also see it will be an exercise of “vengeance” and retribution (2 Thessalonians 1:5-12). It will be a day in which no soul will be able to escape (2 Corinthians 5.10). If there is anything that is certain concerning our Lord, He will not allow the wicked to go unpunished. Therefore, we should use every resource at our disposal to make sure we are following the path that Christ would have us to take, to ensure that we do not have to face the similar fate of these wicked nations.
