2 Chronicles says, “…the wrath of the LORD arose against His people, till there was no remedy.” God is love and if His wrath is released, He is still love. The LORD desired to save His people and bring “remedy” to Israel, but they refused. He continued to release judgments in stages trying to awaken them and cause them to repent, but they hardened their hearts further. Finally, the time came where things could not be remedied and the only thing that could be done was to bring swift severe judgment to the land. The LORD has no delight in the death of any person (see Ezekiel 33:11); He waits with longsuffering for people to repent, but there comes a time when things can’t be fixed any other way except by judgment.
