"Live by God's Every Word"  Ma 4.4


The PLACE & TIME of Jeremiah's Babylon

Jeremiah 50:1
The word which the LORD spoke concerning Babylon, 
the land of the Chaldeans, [10 references to 51.54]
through Jeremiah the prophet:

Jeremiah 50:4
"In those days and at that time," declares the LORD, "the sons of Israel will come, both they and the sons of Judah as well; they will go along weeping as they go, and it will be the LORD their God they will seek.

Jeremiah 50:5
"They will ask for the way to Zion, turning their faces in its direction; they will come that they may 
join themselves to the LORD 
in an everlasting covenant that 
will not be forgotten.

The PLACE is made clear in this passage...

"the land of the CHALDEANS", i.e., 

                                        Babylon in modern Iraq

The TIME is announced in this passage...

The TIME is given in this passage (following up on the announcement in the previous verse...

  "join themselves to the LORD 
in an everlasting covenant"  

...at the SALVATION of the JEWS at the End of the Tribulation, as announced by the Apostle Paul in Romans 11:25-27.


Babylon will be the LAST City on Earth to Fall. This is in perfect agreement with Revelation 16:19 and chapter 18. Note in verse 12 below the PLACE of Babylon--" land of the Chaldeans"--modern-day Iraq. Note in the TIME of Destruction--when"all the nations" are Destroyed (v. 12 and 15, "everlasting desolation", the Great Tribulation). Note the SPECIFIC TIME of the Destruction of Babylon--"after" all the nations Fall, v. 26.

Jeremiah 25:12
'Then it will be when seventy years are completed I will punish the
king of Babylon and that nation,'
declares the LORD, 'for their iniquity,
and the land of the Chaldeans;
and I will make it an everlasting desolation.
Jeremiah 25:15
For thus the LORD, the God of Israel, says to me, "Take this cup of the
wine of wrath from My hand, and cause all the nations, to whom I send you, to drink it.
Jeremiah 25:22
and all the kings [kings of the nations, and] the kings of the coastlands which are beyond the sea;
Jeremiah 25:26
and all the kings of the north, near and far, one with another; and
all the kingdoms of the earth which are upon the face of the ground,

and the king of Sheshach [= Babylon, Je 51.41] shall drink after them.
