God's Message: "Because of the three great sins of Judah - make that four - I'm not putting up with them any longer. They rejected God's revelation, refused to keep my commands. But they swallowed the same old lies that got their ancestors onto dead-end roads.
For that, I'm burning down Judah, burning down all the forts of Jerusalem." Destroyed from the Roots Up
