God’s Opposition to Idolatry
Jeremiah 50:25 (KJB) The LORD hath opened his armoury, and hath brought forth the weapons of his indignation: for this is the work of the Lord GOD of hosts in the land of the Chaldeans.
God has an assortment of both spiritual and physical weapons stored in His armory.
This verse is speaking of a time when God was outraged with the Chaldeans. This ancient people group chose to strive in opposition to Him in the land of Babylon. They ignored His truth by acclimating themselves to serving various gods of idolatry.
No person or group of people can choose to live in opposition to God and expect not to face His wrath. God must always take a stand against sin because it strives as an enemy against His Word. It is in disagreement with everything His righteousness embodies, both in this world and for all eternity.
