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.
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.
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.
I’m always on the lookout for those who transcend the constraints of popular thought and allow the Holy Spirit to direct their understanding of the Last Days. I have found very, very few who have enough of that ‘Last Days’ understanding to be able to give them more than the briefest of mentions.
Well, I can now say that I’ve found one name that is worthy of great commendation:
I stand amazed at the speed with which tyranny grows and the ignorance that has allowed it to prosper. We abandoned clear thought and sound ideas for the dubious illusions of our ‘advanced’ civilization. We will reap the reward for that all too soon, because yes, there is a God, and He is not amused by our foolishness.
God is even less amused by our willingness to condemn the innocent and forget the truth.
God left us with carefully worded messages that lay out the future and His plans, but we no longer read the Bible. So, we can no longer see what is coming.
My most recent addition to Ezekiel’s Fire also deserves to be on Omega Shock. This summary of the Biblical proof for Ezekiel’s Fire requires your attention – because if you don’t prepare, you will probably die.
And, I really, really do not want that.
Of course, I also don’t want Ezekiel’s Fire, but God did not ask for my opinion on this. In fact, I believe that this is a test of your faith.
I want to believe that America can be rescued. I want America to be that shining city on a hill that beckons the nations of the world to truth, righteousness and freedom. I want her to be one nation under God. I want her to be the country that demonstrates the love of Christ to the world.
Unfortunately, America is NOT that country, and cannot be that country unless the Body of Christ in America turns from their wickedness, asks forgiveness from God and sincerely follows the Lord, in humility and truth.
Until that happens, there can be no hope of rescue for our beloved country. And, I do not see evidence that any of this is happening. If I did, I would be far more optimistic.
By now, most of you have probably figured out that where you live is not safe. And, you face the challenge of what to do about that. As I have said repeatedly…
…if you can’t trust your neighbors, it’s time to get new ones.
And, getting new neighbors means moving to a place where you CAN trust your neighbors, or where situation isn’t so dire – or both.
I recommend the ‘both’ part, but that means leaving the United States – a very daunting prospect for anyone with an ounce of sanity. But, I am an example of someone who has done that, and – by the grace of God – lived to tell the tale.
So, let me take this time to tell my own story of relocation.
