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.
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.
Thursday marked the 100 year anniversary of the Balfour Declaration. It laid the groundwork for the completely legal distribution of land rights to the Jews, as the foul and evil Ottoman Empire was being dismembered. And, make no mistake, the Ottoman Empire was truly corrupt and Satanic.
(Remember the Armenian Genocide?)
It was also a moment in time that marked the spread of the idea of the Nation State. The monarchies were dying. The ‘divine right of kings’ was losing recognition. And, it was the high water mark for Christianity in Europe and North America. After that, it was downhill.
Never forget that the founding of the State of Israel and her success has been entirely due to the Christians.
Karen J sent an email, asking me to talk about Zionism. Then others challenged me on other issues about Israel. So, I find myself – yet again – addressing the most important patch of land in the world.
And, it is vital that you get this.
Jesus spoke of Jerusalem – also known as Zion – as a key identifier of the Last Days. The prophets of the Old Testament who are the biggest source of information on the Last Days, also write about the physical land of Israel being key to the Last Days.
Yet, there are so many lies being told about Israel, that I am forced at least once a year to dispel the lies being told about a place that I lived in for 15 years.
Many Christians now realize that we live in the Last Days. It’s a reluctant acknowledgement because no one really wants to go through the horrors that await us. We shy away from contemplating the wholesale destruction of our civilization, but it comes, no matter how we feel about it.
However, those of you who have come to the realization that we live in the last days must now think more carefully about WHERE we are in the Last Days. So many lies have been preached that it’s hard to even SEE the Last Days at all.
There appears to be no country on Earth more reviled than the Jewish State. To hear her detractors speak, you would think that she was responsible for every evil in the world, from crop failures in Zambia to smog in California.
The antisemitism has grown to a crescendo, and I find myself deafened by it. You must be as well, so I thought that I would lay out some of my own observations about Israel, having lived there for 15 years – and with family STILL living there.
Most important of all, Israel is the key to the prophecies of the days that we live in, the Last Days.
I was a guest on the Hagmann and Hagmann Report, Friday night for the full three hours, and it was an interesting conversation. We covered a wide range of topics, and I was at my tangent-following, rabbit-chasing best.
We started out by discussing the events and background of the Syrian civil war. We mentioned Pope Franky and the reasons why the Jesuits are so evil. I even mentioned the Jesuit connection to Hitler. I brought up Isaiah 17, Isaiah 19, Ezekiel 38 and 39 – as well as Luke 21:24.
If you suffer from such a doubt, read on. But, let me warn you:
You will NOT like what you see.
God chose us to live at this pivotal moment in time. He needed representatives to show His people the way to eternal safety, in the days of suffering that lie ahead. We were chosen for this. You and me.
We just had the anniversary of the beginning of the days that we live in, and we need to remember it, every year.
Because it means that we are one year closer to our final mission.
