Jeremiah 51:45-47

‘‘Get out of Babylon, my people, and run for your lives, before I strike the city in my anger! Don’t be afraid or lose hope, though year after year there are rumors of leaders fighting for control in the city of Babylon. The time will come when I will punish Babylon’s false gods. Everyone there will die, and the whole nation will be disgraced.’’ Jeremiah 51:45-47

Jeremiah was preparing a people for the experience of exile. He knew it would not be an easy life. He knew there would be great issues to face, suffering of an oppressed population, and the loss of home, freedom, and identity. They would be heartbroken over leaving their land and all it symbolized in terms of the blessing and provision of Yahweh. He also knew there were greater dangers than these.

II Corinthians 2:7-8

‘‘When people sin, you should forgive and comfort them, so they won’t give up in despair. You should make them sure of your love for them.’’ 2 Corinthians 2:7-8

Ours is a violent society. Our nation was birthed in the context of war and the struggle for power, wealth, and independence from competing claims for our submission and allegiance. Settlers from England fought to take land from native peoples, from competing European powers, then for independence from the dictates of an English king.
