Babylon Will Be Destroyed (Day 75)

Read Jeremiah 51:1-19
   Winnowers worked to separate the wheat from the chaff. When they threw the mixture into the air, the wind blew away the worthless chaff while the wheat settled to the floor. Babylon would be blown away like the chaff in the wind. In Matthew 3:12, John the Baptist says Jesus will separate the wheat from the chaff. 
   Cyrus, king of Persia, had allied himself with Babylon to defeat Nineveh in 612 B.C. Then the Medes joined Persia to defeat Babylon in 539 B.C. 
   It is foolish to trust in man-made images rather than in God. It is easy to think that the things we see and touch will bring us more security than God. But things rust, rot, and decay. God is eternal. Why put your trust in something that will disappear within a few years?
