“You, therefore, shall prophesy against them all these words, and say to them: “‘The Lord will roar from on high, and from his holy habitation utter his voice; he will roar mightily against his fold, and shout, like those who tread grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth.
Jeremiah 25:30 ESV
“These words” refer to the previous verses, which talk of the cup of the Lord’s wrath, which all the nations of earth were forced to drink, even Babylon, the instrument of God’s wrath. It’s reminiscent of Jesus praying in Gethsemane garden, “Father, if it is possible, let this cup be taken away from me, yet not my will, but yours be done”.
For those who trust in Jesus, He bears God’s wrath upon them for their sinfulness. But for those who don’t, the Lord roars from on high. He’s the lion of the tribe of Judah. If His people are against Him, He will roar against them.
From His holy habitation the Lord utters His voice. When God speaks, things happen. When God says “let there be light”, there is light. When He commands judgement upon us, we are judged.
God is against His people when they rebel against Him. He’s like a lion in a sheepfold when He comes in judgement. But it’s not just personal against His people, He judges the inhabitants of the whole earth, like someone treading out grapes to make wine.
“God Almighty, we don’t want to fall into Your hands of judgement. We trust that Christ has taken the cup of Your wrath upon us, for us. Help us now to live lives that are pleasing to You, by Your Holy Spirit, amen”
