"to Leigh re: "All Doves""

When I read your first post of 11-18 I got my Bible and read the passages you referenced.  A few minutes later I opened your second post and saw Jeremiah 50.  I though to myself, isn't that about the destruction of Babylon, and don't a lot folks now believe that America is modern-day Babylon? (I'm American, by the way)  Picked my Bible up again and went to flip to it - it opened to Jeremiah 50.  I literally gasped!

It's a long chapter, but this is the section I flipped straight to:

35“A sword against the Babylonians!”

declares the LORD—

“against those who live in Babylon

and against her officials and wise men!

36A sword against her false prophets!

They will become fools.

A sword against her warriors!

They will be filled with terror.

37A sword against her horses and chariots

and all the foreigners in her ranks!

They will become women.

A sword against her treasures!

They will be plundered.

38A drought ond her waters!

They will dry up.

For it is a land of idols,

idols that will go mad with terror.
