Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

August 15 - Evening

"Put salt on Moab,
    for she will be laid waste;
her towns will become desolate,
    with no one to live in them.

'A curse on anyone who is lax in
doing the Lord’s work!
    A curse on anyone who keeps their
sword from bloodshed!'

Moab has been at rest from youth,
    like wine left on its dregs,
not poured from one jar to another —
    she has not gone into exile.
So she tastes as she did,
    and her aroma is unchanged."

- Jeremiah 48:9-11

Jeremiah was called by the Lord to be a prophet to the nations, not only a prophet to Israel.

I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” – Jeremiah 1:5

Jeremiah gave prophecies to the following nations, and Baruch wrote many of them down on scrolls to be given their ambassadors when they visited Jerusalem (Jeremiah 27:3-15).

Baruch’s brother, Seraiah, read Babylon’s prophecy (Jeremiah 50-51) to Babylon while Seraiah was in Babylon in 594 BC (Jeremiah 51:59-64). 

The words in the prophecy against Moab in Jeremiah 48:9-11 call for salt to be covered on the land to make it worthless and unproductive (see example in Judges 9:45). The Assyrian king, Tiglath-pileser, scattered salt over the runis of conquered cities during his reign during the days of the Judges (1100 BC). The prophecy comes with a curse on the man or the nation who does not follow through with covering the land with salt and who does not use their sword to slaughter Moab. In this prophecy the Lord’s work is the destruction of Moab with salt and sword. The man who is lax, sloppy, negligent in this work of the Lord is cursed!

Wine in the ancient world came from the juice of crushed grapes that was poured into large clay jars that were sealed. A small vent hole allowed the fermentation gases to escape to prevent the clay jars from exploding. The wine would rise to the top and the dregs would settle to the bottom. For the fermentation process to be completed the wine would be poured from the original clay jars into new jars and the dregs would be strained out. Then the strained wine would be left in the new jars (without the dregs) to finish fermenting.

The problem with Moab Jeremiah says is they are like wine that is still in setting in the same jar as the dregs. They have not progressed, but are going to be ruined because of their lack of progress or movement. Jeremiah indicates that an exile into a foreign country will be what the Moabites need. The Moabites need to be separated from their past, placed in a new culture and continue to ferment, or develop, there in a foreign land.

The Lord says that the best thing for Moab is to spend some time with Nebuchadnezzar in Babylonian exile.

  Christian Quote from Church History

“The corrupt pattern of this age not only molds people into wickedly immoral lives, but also teaches them to reject the good and decent
in exchange for an
ascetic life style.”

- Galyn Wiemers

Something to Ponder??

Genesis 7:6 says that Noah was 600 years old when he built the ark. After the Flood Noah lived 350 more years which means he would have still been alive during the first half of Abraham’s life. Noah died at the age of 950. (Genesis 9:29)

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Dietia (Gr) – two years (Eng) – the Greek word dietia is a compound word made up of dis meaning “twice” and etos meaning “year.”  Dietia refers to the space of two years as in Acts 24:27.
The adjective form dietes means “lasting two years” and
refers to being two years old in Matthew 2:16.

  Daniel's writing and history confirmed in with archaeological finds proving Nabonidus and Belshazzar. They are both named on cylinders from their own time. They can be seen HERE. (Also, HERE and HERE)
Confession to Action   Facts and Information
I will not be complacent, but will seek to improve, change and develop.
I will become more useful and productive for the Lord.
  "Better a little with the fear
of the Lord than great
wealth with turmoil."
