The Lord WIll Punish the Wicked that He Uses to Punish Other Wicked

Today I read Jeremiah 25 where the Lord tells Jeremiah how He will use the unrighteous nations of the earth to punish the Israelites.  He then goes on to tell how He will then punish those unrighteous nations.  I think it is easy to forget that even though He is using them to punish the wicked of the House of Israel, those other nations are still wicked and will be punished.  It is really easy to forget that I think and fall into the trap of thinking that they get a free pass because the Lord is using them for His own purpose.  But the Lord doesn't let any wicked go unpunished forever, everyone will receive the reward based on what they did and how they performed.  We cannot escape the judgement of God forever, it will catch up with us.  Until tomorrow.
