“No, he is speaking to a future event, when the Sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give her light, when the mountains and hills will tremble.”
By referencing the past event:
From the Amplified Bible:
[In a vision Jeremiah sees Judah laid waste by conquest and captivity.] I looked at the land, and behold, it was [as at the time of creation] waste and vacant (void); and at the heavens, and they had no light.
“I think you may find more information in studying the words tohu and bohu in Hebrew.”
From Strongs, to’-hoo and bo’-hoo defined, used in both Genesis 1:2 and Jeremiah 4:23:
From an unused root meaning to lie waste; a desolation (of surface), that is, desert; figuratively a worthless thing; adverbially in vain: - confusion, empty place, without form, nothing, (thing of) nought, vain, vanity, waste, wilderness.
From an unused root (meaning to be empty); a vacuity, that is, (superficially) an undistinguishable ruin: - emptiness, void.
“I find ‘gap theory’ to be a tired extrapolation with very little evidence, whose sole purpose is to shoehorn evolution into Christianity.”
If there’s any gap theorists pushing evolution then they’re not reading the bible correctly either, although I have yet to see many promoting evolution theory. Most do not. Evidence you say? What I find tiring are buffoons who deny scientific evidence that the earth is older than 6,000 years old, and believe that man walked along side dinosaurs. Read the Bible correctly and you will see that it matches that evidence.
