Well, there has been a lot of build up and it actually happened. Jerusalem fell and the Temple was desecrated. All the instruments of worship were taken away and most likely melted down for used in making idols. All seems to be lost…repentance will not save Jerusalem now. The days of exile have begun again like the days of Egypt. I think God has their full attention…too bad it took all of this to get it.
