Then tell them, ‘This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Drink, get drunk and vomit, and fall to rise no more because of the sword I will send among you.’But if they refuse to take the cup from your hand and drink, tell them, ‘This is what the LORD Almighty says: You must drink it! See, I am beginning to bring disaster on the city that bears my Name, and will you indeed go unpunished? You will not go unpunished, for I am calling down a sword on all who live on the earth, declares the LORD Almighty.’(Jeremiah 25:27-29)
Arise, get you up unto the wealthy nation, that dwelleth without care, saith the LORD, which have neither gates nor bars, which dwell alone.And their camels shall be a booty, and the multitude of their cattle a spoil: and I will scatter into all winds them that are in the utmost corners; and I will bring their calamity from all sides thereof, saith the LORD. And Hazor shall be a dwelling for dragons, and a desolation for ever: there shall no man abide there, nor any son of man dwell in it.(Jeremiah 49:31-33)
Jeremiah 46-51 takes us on an amazing survey of Judgments upon the nations surrounding Israel. There is an immediate as well as a final eschatological sense to these prophecies. Some of these Judgments were executed in the time of Jeremiah and Nebuchadnezzar, and some are reserved for the last days of human history.
We have already looked at the Judgments coming upon Ammon,Moab and Edom,(Jeremiah 49, north,central and southern Jordan). Also at the sentence passed upon Damascus(Syria, Jeremiah 49), and the Philistines(West bank ,and Gaza, Jeremiah 47). Jeremiah’s prophecies were vindicated in his lifetime, but there are elements of them that have yet t come to pass.
The Land we call Saudi Arabia is called Midian, Meshech, Keder, and Dedan in the bible, and is slated for Judgement. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is the guardian of Mecca and Medina, and chief proponent of Wahabi Islam, a hyper puritanical and violent sect. The Kingdom has used its immense oil wealth to propagate Wahhabism throughout the World, building lavish Mosques, and madrassa’s throughout the third world.
The Royal family have successfully leveraged their wealth to influence the foreign policy of Europe and the USA against Israel. They have literally purchased the western Media and Academia to do the same. This is the most adamantly anti Israel nation on the face of the earth, not allowing a Jew, or anyone with so much as an Israeli stamp on their passport to step foot on Arabian soil!
Therefore according to Genesis 12:3 “I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you…”, their time of judgment draws nigh.
In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and he heard me. Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue.What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee, thou false tongue? Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper. Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar! My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.(Psalm 120)
The first of the prophetic “psalms of ascent” is a prayer for deliverance from the lies and implacable enmity of those whom Israel lives among, from “Meshech… and the tents of Keder”. No matter how much negotiation Israel makes in her endless quest for peace with her fierce neighbors, there is no ‘good faith’ for they lie, and are truly “for war”.
What shall be done unto these liars who refuse peace with Israel ? “Sharp Arrows and coals of Juniper”are to be dealt to them. The arrows are obvious but what is implied in the expression,’ coals of Juniper’?
The expression “coals of juniper” used in Psalms 120:4 — “burning coals” in Moffatt, “live broom coals” in Goodspeed, “coals of broom” in Jastrow, and “coals that lay waste” in Douay — refers to the fact that the wood of white broom is used extensively for making charcoal. The Royal psalmist avows that the coals of this plant afford the fiercest fire of any combustible matter that was to be found in the desert, and on this account would provide the most fitting punishment for deceitful tongues. From Plants of the Bible, H.N. & A.L. Moldenke, article “175. Reama raetam (Forsk.) Web. & Berth.”
Jeremiah agrees telling us that Keder , (Saudi Arabia), the wealthy nation that dwells without a care… is destined to be rendered uninhabitable in parts, even throughout the millennium!
Arise, get you up unto the wealthy nation, that dwelleth without care…And Hazor shall be a dwelling for dragons, and a desolation for ever: there shall no man abide there, nor any son of man dwell in it.(Jeremiah 49:31, 33)
The Saudi’s swim in wealth and by it they have corrupted the whole earth to hate Israel, and their leaders to prostitute themselves for oil. They have pressured Europe into foisting upon their populations vast influxes of Muslim immigrants who are literally tearing their host societies to pieces. The Saudi’s don’t care.
By their wealth the Saudi’s pour fuel on the fire of Muslim populations all over the world fomenting bloody revolt, church burning and insurrection by radicalising Muslims into the rabid Wahhabi version of Islam…The Saudi’s don’t care.
The Saudi royalty could easily assimilate the so-called hundreds of thousands of “Palestinian refugees” who were rendered homeless in the late 1940’s, when they listened to the Arab leaders who promised to wipe Israel off the map, rather than listen to the Israeli government who promised them equal rights.
Leaving these miserable people (who are their Muslim brothers) in , festering ,squalid ‘no mans land ‘refugee camps for sixty years is more useful to the Arabs purposes, the miserable young men caught in a dead-end, make for ideal suicide bombers… this wealthy nation doesn’t care.
The way the wealthy nation without a care has been able to keep it’s restive, murderous malcontents at bay, has been by financing and exporting the Bin Ladens of this world elsewhere. For example, 19 of the twenty hijackers of our 9-11 nightmare were Saudi nationals. The debauched hypocritical Saudi leadership doesn’t care as long as the terrorists play elsewhere.
But He that sits in the heavens cares deeply, therefore the “wealthy nation without a care” is going to be visited with Judgment.
