For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.”
“For thus says the LORD, ‘When seventy years have been completed for Babylon, I will visit you and fulfill My good word to you, to bring you back to this place. ‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. ‘Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.…” Jeremiah 29:11 (Ref Daniel’s 70 Weeks on this Blog)
