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.
Turkey is preparing for war and is gathering allies to do so. And, this growing alliance appears suspiciously close to that of the Gog and Magog alliance.
Is Turkey the Land of Magog?
It’s actually hard to say. And, I find that difficulty to be very interesting. It’s as if God were providing us with a test – a test of our willingness to love the Truth, instead of our own intellect. And, I am finding a LOT of ‘self love’ among the intellectuals making spurious claim after spurious claim about Magog.
This week, Israel is 70 years old, and the hatred against her grows worse and worse, and the lies grow even faster. So, as someone who knows Israel from the inside out, I am committed to bringing you the truth to help neutralize those lies and that hatred – lies and hatred that will do great damage to your soul and even… your life.
And yes, I know the truth.
I know the history, the language and the people. I lived there for 15 of my 23 years in Asia. More importantly, I know the Bible and God’s plans for that tiny patch of land.
Please understand that, because you could die if you don’t. It’s why I wrote Ezekiel’s Fire, to help you survive what Isaiah described in chapter 30 – the same event described in Jeremiah 30. That event is the coming of Gog and Magog, and Iran’s attack on Israel is a signal that we are closer to that cataclysm than some might think.
The good thing is that there are some who understand all this, and when I run into them… well …it’s a HUGE relief. And, I did that just yesterday.
Remember the name Dalton Thomas. You’ll be hearing more about him in the future.
The world is preparing for war. Some hope to stay out of it. Some push for it. Some fear losing it. And, you can tell that it’s coming because of what the players are doing to move into what they think is the best position for winning this war.
The fear in everyone’s heart is that this will be a World War that will engulf the globe. And, that’s a valid fear, since the great powers are the ones doing the maneuvering.
Unfortunately, the focus is – and will be – Israel.
She didn’t start out as ‘the focus’. She certainly doesn’t want to be the focus. But, she’ll be the focus. And, the world will be shaken by what happens.
Three eleven. That’s what we – in East Asia – call the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami of March 11th, 2011. The rest of you think of it as the time when the Fukushima nuclear reactors melted down and blew up.
However, it’s more than a disaster. It’s also an allegory of the future – an allegory that we need to pay attention to. Those who do not internalize this warning about the future, will be lucky to survive when that future arrives.
Why do I say this?
Most who died in the 3/11 Tsunami, did so because they ignored the warning – or didn’t hear it.
I am so bad at prognostication, that I won’t really try to tell you what WILL happen. The best that I can do is describe the threats. These threats have been looming larger and larger with each passing year. And, some of them are new.
Please treat these seriously.
My hope is that we will have another year where we successfully dodge the bullets being fired at us. But, there is a limit to how often we can do that.
Daniel 8 is a tough chapter to work through, and I believe that it was done that way on purpose. But, since it is an important chapter in an important book, it is worth our time to try and understand it.
And, I believe that we have some ability to piece together what can and cannot be the correct interpretation of Daniel 8.
So, let’s try to figure out if the Antichrist MUST come from the region in and around the Middle East – including Greece and parts of central Asia.
Donald Trump just did the one thing that I did not expect him to do:
Recognize Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel
He promised to do that during his campaign, and he delivered on that promise. And, I’m not used to American Presidents doing that – especially, when it comes to Jerusalem.
The side-effect of this event, will be a heating up of conflict in the Middle East and an acceleration of The Last Days. I believe that this is a very big deal, and I suspect that you will agree, when you see the evidence that I see.
