Jeremiah 45:5 ‘But you, are you seeking great things for yourself? Do not seek them; for behold, I am going to bring disaster on all flesh,’ declares the LORD, ‘but I will give your life to you as booty in all the places where you may go.'”
These words that Jeremiah spoke to Baruch on behalf of the Lord are relevant to us today – for we live in the day of the Lord. The “disaster on all flesh” speaks of the judgment that is upon the earth. Our “life” speaks to us of the grace the Lord gives us in the midst of this judgment – we who look to Him and live righteously for His sake.
Christ is our Passover (1 Corinthians 5:7). Thus the “disaster on all flesh” passes over us as we enjoy fellowship with the Lamb of God.
