Announce in Egypt, and proclaim it in Migdol; proclaim it also in Memphis and Tahpanhes; Take your positions and get ready, for the sword devours those around you. Why will your warriors be laid low? They cannot stand for the LORD will push the down.
Egypt, Babylon, foreign nations, foreign cities, ruled by the will of God: the LORD has knocked them down. then vs. 27 Do not fear, O Jacob my servant, for I am with you, declares the LORD. Though I completely destroy all the nations among which I scatter you, I will not completely destroy you.
Do not be afraid. Let the nations of our time shake their fists at Him – God laughs. Let them say “There is no God” That does not change the truth of the Lord or His sovereignty. Let them say that Biblical principles are outdated, puritanical and do not apply in a modern world. The truth doesn’t change: God’s presence, God’s perfect plan, God’s wisdom. These are eternal.
