FEAR NOT: God’s Children are Corrected; God’s Enemies are Annihilated

‎”But FEAR NOT thou, O my servant Jacob, and be not dismayed, O Israel: for, behold, I will save thee from afar off, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and be in rest and at ease, and none shall make him afraid.
FEAR thou NOT, O Jacob my servant, saith the Lord: for I am with thee; for I will make a full end of all the nations whither I have driven thee: but I will not make a full end of thee, but correct thee in measure; yet will I not leave thee wholly unpunished.” ~ Jeremiah 46:27-28

FEAR NOT: God’s Children are Corrected; God’s Enemies are Annihilated

Notice, in our text, the phrase, “for I will make a full end of all the nations whither I have driven thee: but I will not make a full end of thee”.

God destroyed the nations that held Israel captive, but He never destroyed Israel. The Babylonians were completely wiped out as a people: Babylon existed where there is modern-day Iraq. However, the people of Iraq are not descendants of the Babylonians, they are all gone.

The message for us is straightforward: God disciplines/corrects His children: “I will… correct thee in measure; yet will I not leave thee wholly unpunished”. BUT, He removes/annihilates His enemies.  Where do you stand?

Children of God: FEAR thou NOT!
Enemies of God: FEAR a LOT!”

This post is a part of a series on several of the “FEAR NOT” sayings in the Bible.
