Jeremiah chapter 50
A century before it occurred, Jeremiah accurately predicted the sudden fall of Babylon.
How? God's prophet foretold that her protective waters would be "dried up," and her mighty men would not fight. (Jer.50:38; 51:30) These prophesies were fulfilled in detail when the Medes and the Persians diverted the Euphrates River, waded across its bed, and then entered the city, taking the Babylonians by surprise. Also, it was prophesied that the city would become an uninhabited wasteland. (Jer 50:39;51:26) To this day, the desolate condition of once-mighty Babylon testifies to the accuracy of divine prophecy.
But what is the significance of this prophecy in our day?
Does the prophecy of the fall of Babylon with the release of God's people affect us today?
