Nope. I already debunked that. Jeremiah said that he saw the earth WITHOUT FORM (or a watery mess). Judah flooded by water anytime after Jeremiah made this statement up to the present day. It can't be about Judah.
B. W. wrote:no mention of people, human beings ever existing pre-gap time, yet the context is plain.
Except in Jeremiah 4. How many times does God have to mention something before it becomes true?
B. W. wrote:Human beings existing an in all places in Judah and Jerusalem before the Gap and were created before God said man was. Wow that is a stretch...
The angels are often called "men" in scripture.
B. W. wrote:Jer 4:3 For thus says the LORD to the men of Judah and to Jerusalem, "Break up your fallow ground, And do not sow among thorns.
Jer 4:4 "Circumcise yourselves to the LORD And remove the foreskins of your heart, Men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem, Or else My wrath will go forth like fire And burn with none to quench it, Because of the evil of your deeds."
Jer 4:5 Declare in Judah and proclaim in Jerusalem, and say, "Blow the trumpet in the land; Cry aloud and say, 'Assemble yourselves, and let us go Into the fortified cities.'
Jer 4:6 "Lift up a standard toward Zion! Seek refuge, do not stand still, For I am bringing evil from the north, And great destruction. NASB
That is the context - and notice these verses: Isa 24:19-23; Eze32:7-8; Joel 2:10, Joel 2:30-31, Joel 3:15-16; Amos 8:9; Mat 24:29,35; Mark 13:24-25; Luke 21:25-26; Acts 2:19-20 about end time events too.
But that is NOT the VISION Jeremiah had later in the chapter. "I BEHELD the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light." (Jeremiah 4:23). Yes, as I have already stated, the context is for Israel. But in verse 23, Jeremiah begins seeing a VISION that is demonstrably about the Genesis 1:2 earth desgined to warn the Jews about what God can do to destroy sinners.
B. W. wrote:Notice Verse 28 which is after verse 26...
Jer 4:26 I looked, and behold, the fruitful land was a wilderness, And all its cities were pulled down Before the LORD, before His fierce anger.
Jer 4:27 For thus says the LORD, "The whole land shall be a desolation, Yet I will not execute a complete destruction.
Jer 4:28 "For this the earth shall mourn And the heavens above be dark, Because I have spoken, I have purposed, And I will not change My mind, nor will I turn from it."
Look at the underlined part and notice that this is not about a pre-adamic world for if it really was God would have used other words like - I destroyed it when I spoken and did not change my mind... ie using past tense and not future tenses.
But look at verse 27 in the KJV, "For thus HATH the LORD said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end." That's past tense. In other words, because of what the Lord JUST SAID in verses 23-26, the whole land would become desolation, etc. Because God was just enough to destroy the entire earth with water to make it without form, He will destroy Judah for their sins, but not as much as He did in Genesis 1:2, "yet will I not make a full end." (Jer. 4:27).

Quoted from the Summarized Bible Below
Contents: Jeremiah’s second message, continued. Warning of the consequences of sin and exhortation to return to God.
Characters: God, Jeremiah.
Conclusion: It is the evil of men’s doings that kindles the fires of God’s wrath against them and brings destruction upon the land. That which is to be before He moves, which makes a way of escape for those who will sincerely turn to Him and receive His mercy.
Dreaded above everything else is the wrath of God, but God always warns
Key Word: Desolations, Jer 4:7.
Strong Verses: Jer 4:22.
Summaries are no replacement for the actual words of God.

Best I can do is for anyone coming to this post thread and see the error of using this chapter to support Gap theory... and come to his or her own conclusions...
Again, I strongly disagree.
