Jeremiah 44:22 So that the LORD could no longer bear, because of the evil of your doings, and because of the abominations which ye have committed; therefore is your land a desolation, and an astonishment, and a curse, without an inhabitant, as at this day.
There is no way you can continue to do wrong and not expect horrible consequences. God gets to the point here that He merely will no longer put up with their actions. They were doing wrong. They were evil. They were doing things that He hated. They continued in their sin.
Their continual rebellion and sin led to the destruction of their homes. Their punishment, the destruction of their city, was so horrible it put people in shock. There was no solution.
Do you not realize that if you do not trust Christ as your Savior that you will suffer beyond your wildest imaginations. You can ignore the truth. You can rebel against the truth, but you will suffer for it. This passage is a picture of what will happen to you if you do not turn to the One that loves you and offers you new life.
Trust Christ today. Be saved. Realize that you have sinned and separated yourself from God but that He loves you and is offering you a free gift of salvation right now. Trust Christ and be saved today!
