Jacob’s Great Tribulation is the third great tribulation mentioned in the Bible. It will dovetail the Heptad Great Tribulation. Also known as Jacob’s trouble, this great Tribulation will affect Jews in a horrible manner.
“For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.”
“At that time Michael shall stand up, the great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation, even to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone who is found written in the book.
Jewish nation and people worldwide will bear the brunt of this tribulation judgment. “Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined, is poured out on the desolate.” (Dan 9:27)
This Middle East ‘covenant’ is for seven years. It is the pivot of the great deception upon the Jewish people. Jesus said: “I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive.” (Jn 5:43)
Russia and her allies will attempt to invade Israel through the Golan Heights after three and a half years of signing the Accord.
The Man of Peace will move his headquarters and forces from Brussels to Jerusalem apparently in defence of Israel. God will supernaturally intervene and destroy one-sixth of the invading forces. The Man of Peace repudiates the Covenant and becomes the antichrist, the first Beast.
Jacob’s trouble is the last three and a half years of the Jewish heptad, which is also the second half of the seven year Heptad Great Tribulation period. The first half is the great deception to the Jews. It will be used to rebuild the Temple, reintroduce animal sacrificial system in order for the Jews to accept the ‘man of peace’ as their Messiah.
To preserve a remnant of Jews for the kingdom age.
“Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.” (Rev 12:6)
