Jeremiah Chapter 46 Discussion

    Hi Eric. It's my understanding that in Jeremiah 46:11,19,20,24 where the 'daughter of Egypt, virgin daughter, fair heifer' are mentioned, they speak of only Egypt, as a land that up to this time had never been conquered.

    But Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon would come during the reign of Jehoiakim of Judah, & Egypt would be delivered into Babylon's hands. Jeremiah prophesied this a few years prior to the arrival of Nebuchadnezzar, in 605 BC. Jeremiah 46:2 speaks of the battle being in Carchemish, which was in present-day southern Turkey. Apparently, Egypt had rule over that city & that's where Babylon met Egypt in battle. Ezekiel also mentions this battle in chapter 30 (if you want to read ahead from your present studies).

    So, the 'virgin daughter of Egypt' implies the unconquered state of the land Egypt & therefore the 'daughter of Egypt' would be all those in Egypt awaiting their fate (i.e. the take-over of Babylon) as the battle at Carchemish would be lost & they would become vassals of Babylon. You're doing a good job with your studies, Eric.

    Is daughter of Egypt suppose to mean something? Like the holy people left that dwell in Egypt?

    28 above. Fear thou not, O Jacob my servant, saith the LORD: for I am with thee; for I will make a full end of all the nations whither I have driven thee: but I will not make a full end of thee, but correct thee in measure; yet will I not leave thee wholly unpunished. ( 2018; GOD still build-up and tear-down, release HIS wrath or have MERCY. WOW! WOW! WOW!

    Why are the ancient words and dealings of God in ancient times and long past peoples recorded in the Book of God? That we may read and hear of them and learn to fear the LORD our God, so that we do not as our wicked ancestors did to defy the LORD's commandments, and provoke Him with their sinning till He was left no choice but to take them all away in His wrath. His Word is eternal.

    Servant of Jacob's

    Are you calling Yeshua (Christ) the Anti-christ? That is what it seems by your post, or am I misunderstanding something?

    Are you Orthodox by any chance?

    the servant of Jacob is an ordinary man Messianic of the loins of Judah who has known who the man of perdition is from his first office[was] then removed[was not] returning by smooth words[was again]31 March 2009 without the honour of kingship as he lost the election but promised to bring Peace- he lied.His name/ number is 666 in Hebrew counting-gematria.I have spoken publically about this man who magnifies himself equal to the commander of the host i.e. Jesus Christ-king of the Jews.I believe the last week started from his return; concluding 31 March 2016 which is time[God measures in days-24 hours] times [24 hours] & X 1/2 divided time[God divides into 70 weeks of 7; 1/2 one is 3.5years]=24 x24 x3.5=2016a.d. the one time scale you will understand as 'no man shall know the month day or hour' but 'I will says YHWH' reveal then WHEN [ Dan 12,7] at endtime-now.I have been called a 'mental case' for my view but in light of the fact I speak on behalf of a man who says He is the son of God & even YHWH incarnate[I believe Him] I am not so crazy.I am Isaiah 46,11.
    Maranatha, Shalom.
