And, those of us who understand that we are in the Last Days… well …we are very interested in how this period of time will unfold. After all, we are at the ground zero of history, and our personal survival is at stake.
More importantly, the Last Days will challenge our ability to serve God, and we want to do the best that we can, while we can – so that we will hear “Well Done”, when we stand before Jesus in the First Judgment.
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 was not intending to write a Part II, when I wrote last week’s article. But, a few things popped up that demonstrated a need to continue down this line of thought.
This really is a ‘perfect storm’. There are so many threats that have moved into view, that I am surprised that we do not see some real hysteria over it all. Of course, the problem is our ‘dumbed-down’ population and the evil cooperation by the morons in the mainstream press.
Add in the Universities and their attempts at ‘social engineering’, and you truly have a recipe for disaster. So, let’s look at some of the other pieces in our Apocalypse Puzzle.
The evidence of impending doom increases every day. Every week, something unexpected hits the headlines, adding stress to an already over-stressed financial system. Soon, one of those headlines will be the last straw for the poor camel.
China devalued their Yuan. Freight transportation indexes have collapsed. Idiots in the EPA ‘accidentally’ released a mountain of poison into the Animas River. Syria has continued to collapse, and Islam rises in the West. And, as if that wasn’t enough, we have racist idiots fouling the efforts of those of us trying to get the truth into your hands.
The drumbeat for war is accelerating. And, it is NOT a coincidence that the financial system appears to be ready for a complete collapse.
Bix Weir said that this financial collapse will happen within the next four months, and the evidence indicates that he’s right. And, others have echoed his sentiments. Of course, he and these same ‘others’ have made this prediction before – and were wrong. The reason why they were wrong is solely due to the herculean efforts by the banksters to artificially prop up the financial system.
However, there is a limit to how long they can keep the system from collapse. And, if they see a collapse coming… well …they’ll take us to war.
God ALWAYS fulfills His word. By the time the final end arrives, every promise made by God will have been fulfilled to the very letter – and beyond. It’s one of the reasons why I always analyze events according to what the Bible says will happen – not just by what I see in the newspapers.
This is the reason for the straight line that I’ve drawn from what I said on Monday, to what I’m saying today. The events in between may turn out somewhat differently, but the results will be the same. And, I stand on much firmer ground when I talk about what the Bible has told us.
It should be clear to all of you by now, that I am NOT a Dispensationalist. In fact, I didn’t really understand what dispensationalism was, until a friend ambushed me one day in church – demanding to know if I followed such an idea.
Russia is an interesting place with an interesting history. Few countries in the world have as difficult a geopolitical situation, as Russia. But, it has made the best of its circumstances and carved out a name for itself.
President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin understands Russia’s place in history and knows how to ensure a future for his vast country. So, even though the psychopaths of the New World Order sought to challenge Russia in her own back yard, Putin chose a measured response to their outrageous provocations.
Unfortunately, it’s one step closer to the biggest catastrophe since Noah’s Flood – Ezekiel’s Fire.
The coming of Gog and Magog will be a horrifying catastrophe for the world. At the very least, it will mean that America will be so weak, that Russia and her allies will feel like they have a free hand to do what they want. That’s bad, but what appears to be much worse is this fire that God sends upon those who dwell carelessly or securely (Ezekiel 39:6).
If that’s a Solar EMP, Europe and North America will be toast. And, I’m not sure what else it COULD be, so you need to be prepared for that. But, there is one thing that is far more important to me than all of that – the salvation of Israel.
Growing up, I didn’t really spend that much time talking about End Times prophecy with other believers. I just assumed that people ‘got it’. Then, when I was living in Israel, there were so few Christians around, that the same situation applied. However, one day, I stumbled over someone who was talking about the pre-tribulation rapture theory.
When I quizzed him on the implications, I finally got the picture. Pre-trib people believe that Israel is saved DURING the Tribulation.
This is what happens when you don’t read your Bible, carefully. And, it also forces us to focus on Israel FIRST, if we are to discuss a prophecy timeline.
