In today’s QT, Babylonians destroy Judah as the LORD said. The destruction in today’s QT isn’t the cost of rebellion against Babylon, but rather the it’s the cost of rebellion against the LORD.
It might seem like God’s wrath on Judah is evil-ish in some ways, but it’s actually just hard discipline. HE has the right to just completely destroy everything, except Noah as HE did in the past with the flood, but he doesn’t as HE promised himself that HE wouldn’t. HE has the right to do whatever he wants, and HE’s choosing to keep some of them alive, which is better than a total destruction.
There’s no way I could survive God’s wrath for my sins. I should be dead if it wasn’t for Jesus’s sacrifice. It doesn’t mean I can do whatever I want though. It means so much more. For one, I can be with God even when I’m failing Him. Another, I have hope even if I am a total failure. Yet another, I can continue to become what HE wants me to be with the strength HE gives me. There’s so much more.
