Could Jealousy be spiritually speaking of God using Babylon against the Church?


Nu 5:27 And when he hath made her to drink the water, then it shall come to pass, that, if she be defiled, and have done TRESPASS against her husband, that the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall rot: and the woman shall be a curse among her people.

Jealousy appears to be a judgment-only term pointing to God’s use of Babylon against the church in anger. Christ is the judge and therefore Jealousy would also point to Him on the judgment side. The salvation aspect of Jealousy seems point indirectly to God redeeming the Elect out of Babylon at the same time He destroys the Church.
