Don’t Be Tophet!

Posted in RELIGION by Uncle Jaque on 04/18/2017

Jeremiah 18:12

“Thus will I do unto this place, saith the Lord, and to the inhabitants thereof, and even make this city as Tophet:
13. And the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses of the kings of Judah, shall be defiled as the place of Tophet, because of all the houses upon whose roofs they have burned incense unto all the host of heaven, and have poured out drink offerings unto other gods.”

The Prophet seems to have been using “Tophet” as an example – a warning – to the reprobate Hebrew population of his day.

So – what and where was this “Tophet”?

Apparently YHVH had an issue with it and inflicted some kind of judgement on it, along the lines of Sodom and Gomorrah I assume.
We certainly don’t hear much about Tophet in the news today, do we?

It seems as though the Prophet was warning the ancient Tribes of Israel; “Don’t be Tophet!”.

Could his warning yet echo through the catacombs of the ages to the United States of America?

Wherever this Tophet is, I don’t think we really want to go there.
