Wednesday, June 20

Whoever is for the captivity, to the captivity!—Jer. 15:2.

 

In 607 B.C.E., a massive Babylonian army under the command of King Nebuchadnezzar II invaded the city of Jerusalem. Regarding the bloodbath that followed, the Bible says: “[Nebuchadnezzar] killed their young men with the sword in the house of their sanctuary; he felt no compassion for young man or virgin, old or infirm. . . . He burned down the house of the true God, tore down the wall of Jerusalem, burned all its fortified towers with fire, and destroyed everything of value.” (2 Chron. 36:17, 19) The destruction of Jerusalem should have come as no surprise to its inhabitants. For years, God’s prophets had warned the Jews that if they continued to disregard God’s Law, they would be delivered into the hands of the Babylonians. Many Jews would die by the edge of the sword; any who escaped death would likely have to spend the rest of their lives in exile in Babylon. w16.11 4:1, 2

Jehovah always gives people a fair warning, but when he acts, he acts quickly. I try to think of that in the urgency of our ministry. We're giving people a chance, now, but that can change, literally, overnight. Am I doing everything I can right now to reach and teach people?
