Literal Babylon?

Q. In your latest article, The Return Of The Medes, you said; ‘Jeremiah’s two cryptograms can be found in Jere. 51:4 where Leb Kamai is code for Chaldea and in Jere. 51:41 where Sheshach is code for Babylon. I believe he did this to make it unmistakably clear that he was referring to an end times version of Biblical Babylon.’

How does using cryptograms make it clear that Jeremiah was referring to an end times version of Biblical Babylon?

A. Jeremiah was writing about a destruction of Babylon that has never taken place yet. But it will because in effect Daniel 9:24 says that all end times prophecy will be fulfilled before the end of Daniel’s 70th week. By using cryptograms that referred only to Babylon itself, and have never been used to symbolize any other place, he was saying that his prophecies referred to Biblical Babylon, the ancient home of the Chaldean people.
