Jesus answered them and GAVE THEM THE SIGN: “When ye therefore shall see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)...” Mark reported: “But when ye shall see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand)” Luke's Report TELLS US PLAINLY what we're supposed to "UNDERSTAND": “And WHEN YE SHALL SEE JERUSALEM COMPASSED WITH ARMIES, THEN KNOW that the DESOLATION THEREOF is nigh.” The END-TIME ANNIHILATION of JERUSALEM IS THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION!! (Mat 24:15, Luk 21:20, Mar 13:14) ..... Let's TURN ON THE NEWS and see if armies are CURRENTLY surrounding Jerusalem?? --clark

Jacob's Trouble



Jacob’s Trouble

The introduction follows:

Most evangelical Christians believe, that in the last seven years, we will experience the period we call The Great Tribulation.  Most modern-day religious Jews (primarily Tribe of Judah) do not use or understand the New Testament.  Most have not yet accepted their Messiah Jesus Christ.  Their Hebrew Torah is translated from the same records that make up the Old Testament of our Christian Bible.  Acknowledging the prophesies of the Torah, these Jews teach and understand that they will soon be facing this Great Tribulation:

Jewish Torah, Jeremiah Chapter 30 יִרְמְיָהוּ :

“The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying:  'Thus speaketh the LORD, the God of Israel, saying: Write thee all the words that I have spoken unto thee in a book.  For, lo, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will turn the captivity of My people Israel and Judah, saith the LORD; and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.'

And these are the words that the LORD spoke concerning Israel and concerning Judah. For thus saith the LORD: We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child; wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness?

Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it; and it is a time of trouble unto Jacob, but out of it shall he be saved." (v.1-7)

The Christian King James translation calls this: “the time of Jacob's trouble” (Jer 30:7)”:

The scripture very plainly states that this “time of Jacob's trouble” pertains to both the Jews (Judah) and the entirety of Israel:

“these are the words that the LORD spoke concerning Israel and concerning Judah”

The scripture says “it is a time of trouble unto Jacob, but out of it shall he [Jacob] be saved.”  Jacob is Israel:  All 12 Tribes!  Currently, in 2010 A.D. all Tribes, except for part of Judah, are scattered. 

Below I will show, among other things, how the last-day prophesies teach us that the entire world is now facing The Great Tribulation.  I also will show how and when The Lord will stop scattering, and “save” 12,000 members from each of the 12 Tribes during the Tribulation.  I’ll also show that the 144,000 Israelites will be saved and sealed as they walk the earth during The Tribulation… all remaining born-again Christians (who are sealed by the Holy Spirit), both alive and dead, will be raptured/resurrectedat the last [7th] trump.”

About 536 BC (KJV, Daniel Chapter 10) the Angel Gabriel appeared to Daniel in a vision.  Daniel collapsed flat to the ground in fear.  Gabriel strengthened and encouraged him.  The angel explained how he and another angel ("Michael, one of the chief princes") had been fighting together against spiritual wickedness in high places.  Then Gabriel spoke a single sentence to Daniel and again he collapsed to the ground.  The words were:

"Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days. (Dan 10:14)"

Daniel's “people” consist of the same people mentioned above by Jeremiah, namely:  Jacob, more exactly described as "the 12 Tribes of the House of Israel."  Daniel was about to be told, by God's angel Gabriel, what would happen to these 12 Tribes in the last days... again, the angel spoke, saying:

“I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth…”

Daniel still could not handle the stress…about 14 years later (about 522-521 BC) Daniel was given another chance.  Gabriel again returned to Daniel:

“Yea, whiles I [Daniel] was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning [see above], being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation.  And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding.  (Dan 9:21-22)”

Here Daniel is shown “The 70 Weeks [weeks of years] Vision” (Dan 9: 24-27).  The end of this vision (v.27) describes the final Seven Years (containing the Great Tribulation):

“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.”

Read it again with my added emphasis:

And he [“Messiah the Prince”] shall confirm the covenant with many for one week [7 years] : and in the midst of the week [7 years] he [“Messiah the Prince”] shall cause the sacrifice[God’s sacrifice] and the oblation [Gods oblation] to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it [“thy holy city” Jerusalem] desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. [Israel’s “holy city” Jerusalem will be completely, utterly, and altogether annihilated at the end of the Great Tribulation.]

This particular vision occurred “In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, of the seed of the Medes (Dan 9:1).”  We need to jump ahead to Chapters 11 & 12 to read the remainder of this vision.  Chapters 11 & 12 & 9 are dated the same:

Also I in the first year of Darius the Mede, even I, stood to confirm and to strengthen him.  And now will I shew thee the truth. Dan 11:1-2)”

By this time Daniel had been waiting 14 years to “understand what shall befall thy people [12 Tribes of Israel] in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days. (Dan 10:14).”  Chapter 11 details the rise of the antichrist.  Chapter 12 focuses on the Great Tribulation:

“there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people [All 12 Tribes of Israel] shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.”

In verse 6 one of the angels asks:  “How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?” 

To be continued...
