"Rapture foreshadowed in Jeremiah?"

Dear John and Doves, etc. -
 
Neil's item references Supreme Court takes up censorship on TV and brought to mind Jeremiah's tribulation recorded in Jeremiah 38:6-13.
 
Jeremiah being drawn out of the mire in the dungeon -- suggestive to me of the sanitation system then in use -- made me think of us being drawn out of the moral cesspool in which we find ourselves.  I won't run with the possible symbolism of "thirty men" or "old clothes and old rags" or even that Jeremiah was mired under the treasury.  Suffice it to say, Jeremiah was glad to be pulled out, and I will be, too.
 
I sure hope Ron Reese is right.
 
Best,
 
Steve
