  1. love your videos! The only thing I’m skeptical about is your subtle hints of social justice or social injustice. But this has inspired me to read the scriptures in detail to find out if what you’re saying is true. God bless you!

    • Kirsty McAllister Because Justice is a virtue that is complete in and of itself. There’s no need to add any descriptors to it. The term “social justice” was invented by marxists and is propagated by people who tend to hate or at least demonize the wealthy. Back when the Bible was written the term “social justice” would have been completely absurd. There was simply Justice.

    • You add adjectives to qualify things. Justice can be applied in different realms. In order to talk about justice between groups of people like between “Widows and strangers” and “leaders and Princes” for example we call it social justice to differentiate it from things like “criminal justice” that would more so be Justice in how we deal with crimes. Social Justice is really Justice applied to relationships between social groups like “orphans” or “priests” etc etc..

    • Take heed brother this is all true read with an open heart and mind. Jesus is near, Justice is near! “Social Justice” is treating everyone equal, with the love that God has commanded his people. We all must be aware and a do what we’ve been called. Bless you!

    • Ivy Primrose Thank you for the encouraging words! I hear you! I just don’t understand why you need to add a quantifier to the word justice. Justice is an attribute of God in and of its own. it’s all encompassing in its own right and doesn’t need subcategories. God bless!

  2. This just helped me this morning to at least see the UA as a possible Babylon figure and also that we are in the range of the 70 years (one generation) in todays history – 1948-2018.

  3. I listen to your work on the books often, it helps with my studies. I did wonder why you kept saying he was called to warn “Israel” – should it be better understood to say “Judah” since Jeremiah prophesied to the southern kingdom, that being Judah? Although called to the nations?

  4. Thank you! We’re studying a small section from Jeremiah and this is perfect for giving an overview of what the whole book is about, to put things in context. Succinct, easy to understand and visual. 🙂

  5. I’ve had many prophets come to me and prophesy that I am like Jeremiah, that god has planned my destiny for me before I was in my mothers womb. Its sort of scary because I’ve have many pastors tell me the same verse from the book of Jeremiah and tell me the same message. I don’t know what to do. I’m not perfect, how can I be a vessel for him?? Apart from that, God told Jeremiah what to do… but what do I do?

  6. The reformers found metaphorical Babylon to be a metaphor for ‘false religion’. ..rather than the “rebellious nations” as you described it.
