Jeremiah 40:3 Now the LORD hath brought it, and done according as he hath said: because ye have sinned against the LORD, and have not obeyed his voice, therefore this thing is come upon you.
Nebuzar-adan, the captain of the guard, must have known what Jeremiah had prophesied. He realized that even the wicked things he was doing were God’s judgment on His people. I am doing it but you brought it upon yourselves. You sinned against God. You would not obey His voice. This is happening because of what you did.
Don’t try to blame God or anyone else. You were warned. You decided to take your chances and now you are suffering. How embarrassing to hear a lost man tell them what the man of God had been saying for years.
You can know that what God says will come true. You must decide to hear and act on it before it is too late!
