“Helping People Fulfill God’s Plan For Their Lives Through Business”


Who carried you into Babylon?

4 This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says to all those I carried into exile from Jerusalem (your Spiritual home) to Babylon (your home on earth):

What are you supposed to do in Babylon?

5 “Build houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what they produce. 6 Marry and have sons and daughters; find wives for your sons and give your daughters in marriage, so that they too may have sons and daughters. Increase in number there; do not decrease. 7 Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.”

Who are you supposed to not listen to and follow?

8 Yes, this is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: “Do not let the prophets and diviners among you deceive you. Do not listen to the dreams you encourage them to have. 9 They are prophesying lies to you in my name. I have not sent them,” declares the LORD.

What are God’s plans for you in Babylon?

10 This is what the LORD says: “When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will come to you and fulfill my gracious promise to bring you back to this place. 11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

What is the condition for finding God?

12 “Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”

What happens when you find God?

14 “I will be found by you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.” Jeremiah 29:4-14

God’s ultimate plan while you are in Babylon is for you to find HIM, for you to work and grow, and for you to prosper in the hope of the Lord.
