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 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.
I can’t believe that I had to write that as the title. But, what I heard over the past few days, leads me to make that statement.
I would love to believe that he has just gone insane, or that his hatred of the Jews and Israel has consumed his mental faculties. But, I can’t make that assumption. The evidence from his own mouth condemns him, and I do not have any other way to think about this.
No follower of Christ deliberately lies about another Christian – especially, in an attempt to deceive other Christians.
I certainly welcome your thoughts on this, once I have laid out what I have seen and heard.
Of all the years that I’ve been writing articles, I believe that 2017 is the most important. And, I’ve been writing since the mid ’90s. Only time will tell, whether I’m right (and write). And, 2018 might be even MORE momentous.
However, we’ll deal with 2018 later. Right now, we need to look back at this past year and examine what was important. But, I want to do that a bit differently than I normally do, at this time of year.
I want to look at the articles that YOU thought were important, and a few that I thought to be important.
Christians have been talking about the Great Tribulation from the moment that Christ proclaimed its coming. It will be the most horrifying and awful moment in time, since the beginning of Creation. It will be so bad, that you would rather die than go through it.
That is COMPLETELY understandable.
Likewise, it is completely understandable to want to know how long the Great Tribulation is. If you are going to go through it, you’d like to know how long it will last.
Horrible times are always more bearable, when you know when they will end.
With all that is happening right now, you would think that a book review would be the last thing for me to talk about. But, it is precisely because there is so much going on that I must do this book review.
Spiritual blindness is the one thing keeping Christians from seeing what is happening and what is about to happen. If our brothers and sisters were spiritually awake and following the Holy Spirit, I would not need to tell you anything.
But, I believe that this book is vital for many to read. So, bear with me as I discuss A Bucket Full of Holes.
We live in the Age of Deception – a fact that I’ve been repeating ad nauseam. And, I will keep repeating that, since this appears to be a truth that seems especially hard to accept. In fact, I repeat this as much for my own edification as yours.
The problem is that this deception has reached into our midst, and it’s poisoning our own ability to see the truth of what is happening around us. I am very distressed by this, since you are the target of this deception.
Satan wants YOU destroyed, and he has sown the seeds of your destruction in the hearts of many that you love and trust.
The immediate future is beyond awful. In fact, when I look out over the course of current events it is difficult to see ANY good news in our future. War, corruption and the vilest of evils weigh so heavily upon our future that I cringe at the thought of what is coming.
Yet, there is hope.
Unfortunately, the context of that ‘hope’ will be the death of a billion people. But, those who have prepared for that ‘hope’ will have the opportunity to fulfill their destiny in service to God.
Those who ignore the need to prepare will experience horrors beyond my willingness to contemplate.
