The United States, Latin America, Europe, The Middle East, India and China are all set for civil war. Some of that will be like the war fought between the North and the South in the (somewhat less) United States during the 1800s. But, most of it will be social upheaval, ethnic strife and general stupidity.
It’s bad now, but when economic difficulty sets in… it will become catastrophic. Nothing turns a man or woman violent like hungry children. And, when the rule of law finally collapses, those without children will turn violent when others have something that they do not have.
Any history. Any country. All of it is completely insane. Thousands upon thousands of years of complete and utter madness.
Read the Bible.
How is it possible for the Children of Israel – in the wilderness – to be so crazy as to rebel against God?
Read your newspaper.
On second thought… don’t. The WRITERS of newspaper articles are certifiably insane, already. But, current events are even MORE insane.
It’s as if we have all been overcome by a mass psychosis. And, it’s all so very stupid. Mind-boggling idiocy. The mindless, brainless, knee-jerk absurdity of it all is almost beyond my ability to understand.
With the horrifying events that are bearing down upon us, you desperately need to understand WHY Israel is at the center of it all. And, it is the center of it all.
Please understand that we are at the end of history. Everything that has gone before, has been leading up to this moment in time. Yes, the war was won 2000 years ago, but the fighting isn’t over. And, I was deeply impressed by a presentation given by a neighbor of mine, from Jerusalem.
This presentation illustrates THE POINT. And, you need to get that POINT, to navigate the events that we are about to experience.
We are beset with lies. They surround us. They attempt to invade everything that we do. They try to divert our attention. They trip us up when we try to make intelligent decisions. And, the lies are so much more fun than the TRUTH.
That’s why the truth is such a challenge. It’s painful. It’s ugly. It holds a mirror up and shows us that we aren’t as strong or as beautiful as we would like to be.
So, I understand why TRUTH is such a challenge. But, if you want to live long and prosper… If eternity is your destination… you’d better accept the challenge of accepting the TRUTH.
We find the term, Jacob’s Trouble, in Jeremiah 30:7. And, it’s placed in the midst of a chapter that speaks of great calamity and great salvation. And, it is because of that great judgment and calamity, that we think of Jacob’s Trouble as being a part of The Great Tribulation.
After all, ‘trouble’ and ‘tribulation’ are similar words. And, Jeremiah 30:7 mentions the trouble as there being none like that day. So, it’s easy to assume that Jacob’s Trouble and the Great Tribulation are the same.
You’d be wrong, but you would have a good excuse for being wrong.
