Jacob’s trouble also known as the desolation is a large era in prophecy often talked about by the Old Testament prophets. Interestingly, It is a topic that is rarely (if ever) preached about in Christian churches today largely because many pastors see it as an event in the gloomy apocalypse to come. Instead, the emphasis is on the time of the gentiles, the era of grace for the salvation of the heathen.
This post shows that neither Jacob’s trouble nor the time of the gentiles represent what they have been portrayed as. Jacob’s trouble speaks of slavery, oppression, sickness and death at the hands of the heathen. An unbiased understanding of Jacob’s trouble will help identify who the true Israelites are. The time of the gentiles on the other hand speaks of the rise and rule of the gentiles over Jerusalem; the elect of the Most High. That oppression will only end when the heathen (gentile) nations are destroyed.
Finally, this article puts an emphasis on the fact that not only are we in the time of the gentiles, but Jacob’s trouble is already in its twilight years. The time of the gentiles ushered in the enslavement of Jacob’s seed and the end of Jacob’s trouble will be the fulfillment of the time of the gentiles. I show through scriptures that the one brings about the other and both therefore run concurrently. Together, they form the two sides of the same coin; the wrath of the creator.
I watched a YouTube video a while ago where the presenter was teaching that Jacob’s trouble began in 1922. His argument was based on a calculation of the weeks according to the book of Daniel. He also stated that the bloodiest time in the history of the world started after this period.
I didn’t quite agree with his analysis for numerous reasons but I will present here only a discussion on very fundamental elements of the topic.
Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it. – Jeremiah 30:7
The Jeremiah 30 prophecy
The whole of Jeremiah 30 is a prophecy about the sufferings and servitude of both houses of Israel and Judah. They had been in captivity and were serving strangers. The Most High had punished his people; he had bruised and wounded them. Because of their sin, the Almighty had spoiled them and caused the enemy to devour them like prey. That period is what we know as the time of Jacob’s trouble.
But the same chapter talks about the promise of restoration. He promised that a day will come when He would break the yoke off Jacob’s neck and burst his bonds. The Most High vowed to turn the captivity of Jacob and to punish the nations that had afflicted them.
This sounds fascinating, but the question is this, what is Jacob’s trouble. The best way to understand this is to go back to the text from where it was taken.
Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it. For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him: But they shall serve the Lord their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them. Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the Lord; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid. For I am with thee, saith the Lord, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished. For thus saith the Lord, Thy bruise is incurable, and thy wound is grievous. There is none to plead thy cause, that thou mayest be bound up: thou hast no healing medicines. All thy lovers have forgotten thee; they seek thee not; for I have wounded thee with the wound of an enemy, with the chastisement of a cruel one, for the multitude of thine iniquity; because thy sins were increased. Why criest thou for thine affliction? thy sorrow is incurable for the multitude of thine iniquity: because thy sins were increased, I have done these things unto thee. Therefore all they that devour thee shall be devoured; and all thine adversaries, every one of them, shall go into captivity; and they that spoil thee shall be a spoil, and all that prey upon thee will I give for a prey. For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after. Thus saith the Lord; Behold, I will bring again the captivity of Jacob’s tents, and have mercy on his dwellingplaces; and the city shall be builded upon her own heap, and the palace shall remain after the manner thereof. And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small. Their children also shall be as aforetime, and their congregation shall be established before me, and I will punish all that oppress them. And their nobles shall be of themselves, and their governor shall proceed from the midst of them; and I will cause him to draw near, and he shall approach unto me: for who is this that engaged his heart to approach unto me? saith the Lord. And ye shall be my people, and I will be your God. Behold, the whirlwind of the Lord goeth forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked. The fierce anger of the Lord shall not return, until he have done it, and until he have performed the intents of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it. – Jeremiah 30:7-24
Verse 7 says that Jacob shall be saved from his trouble. The subsequent verses then proceed to enumerate what he will be saved from. So to understand Jacob’s trouble, we must reverse engineer the situation based on what he is saved from.
It is important to first know who the text is addressed to. Jeremiah’s ministry began just before the Babylonian exile. The Northern tribes of Israel had already been exiled off into Assyria. His prophesy through the book was however addressed to both kingdoms of Judah and Israel.
The people of the book
The identity of the tribes is therefore crucial to identifying when or what Jacob’s trouble is. This is the point in my opinion where all the confusing description of Jacob’s trouble come from.
People who identify the Jewish people as the house of Jacob make such claims as the holocaust of WWII being Jacob’s trouble. Those who identify the European nations as the houses of Judah and Israel often claim that Jacob’s troubles began at the start of the 20th century. This conclusion is based on the unprecedented death of Europeans in the various world wars. Interestingly these proponents of the European Jacob conveniently overlook the unprecedented prosperity as well as the reduction in the number of conflicts fought on the continent compared to previous centuries.
Unfortunately, none of these troubles described above fits the description of the Jeremiah 30 trouble. Let’s take a look.
Jacob will be under a yoke
For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him. – Jeremiah 30:8
During this time of trouble, Jacob would be under a yoke to a different master. So, what is a yoke?
There are several words used to describe a yoke, some of these include: to be bound, under control, to be robbed etc. Basically, this passage is saying that Jacob will be under the control and authority of another. Their fate, success or peace will not be within their own power to decide. They will be constantly robbed and never given credit for their accomplishments. Someone else will claim their success and achievements. They would be worked like cattle for the profit of another people.
Jacob will be bound together with someone under whose yoke they will be placed. They will carry the burden of another and do the heavy lifting for him. Even though he may yearn to be free from this burden, he will be unable to do so. Jacob will be the solution to his master’s problem. Yet his own problems will go unsolved. This is Jacob’s trouble, the beginning of sorrows.
And will burst thy bonds
To burst is to break suddenly and violently apart releasing the contents of a container. Bonds represent a chain that holds down or entraps. A bond prevents us from being free to be or express ourselves. It prevents us from being who we were made to be.
Jacob’s trouble comes with bonds attached. Jacob (Israel) will not have the same liberties that other people in the land have. There will be no free speech or equal rights for the sons of Jacob. The host nation as well as foreigners will seek to put Jacob ‘in his place’ at all times. He will not have the same ‘priviledges’ as other people in the land.
No matter how hard Jacob tries, regardless of all the civil rights movements, those bonds will remain. When he seems to be making a headway, his oppressor will swoop down and cut him back to size, with violence if necessary. Though Israel shall struggle or strife to break loose, he shall remain under bondage until the day of trouble is past. But when the day is accomplished, the Most High will set the nation free with an outstretched arm.
Jacob’s oppressor in turn shall meet a very violent and sudden end. Just as the Almighty destroyed Egypt at the exodus, so will Israel’s oppressor be destroyed at the end of his trouble.
Strangers shall no more serve themselves of him
At the end of Jacobs trouble, strangers will no longer profiteer or feed off him. Until then, the heathen will use Israel to accumulate wealth and build their cities. They will make him work for little or no payment at all. They will plunder her cities and steal her resources. Israel will be a servant spoiled by lazy priviledged people. Just as in Egypt where Israel built the cities and ushered the nation into greatness, so will strange people achieve greatness on the back of the house of Jacob. Israelites will work and not receive compensation.
Though slavery is illegal around the world, Israelites will be indiscriminately locked up and made to serve strangers with no compensation. That is what the private prison complexes are all about. And yes, prisoners are sent to work on plantations till this day.
Emancipation Proclamation in the USA
In the fall of 1862, America was in the throngs of a bloody civil war. To break the backbone of the rebellion, Abraham Lincoln threatened to emancipate the slaves in states that did not return to the Union. None of the confederate states complied and on January 1 1863, Lincoln signed the emancipation proclamation. This was basically a promissory note to free the Negro slaves after the war. Naturally, this galvanized the slave population to boost the ranks of the Union army thus tipping the balance in favour of the union army. By the fall of 1864, victory was certain and in April 1865, the Confederate General Lee surrendered.
The 13th Amendment to the USA Constitution effectively abolished slavery in the United States. It however inserted a technicality or clause for legal slavery. It states that
”Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.”
The result of this technicality is that former Negro slaves were indiscriminately rounded up and convicted for divers crimes after the war. Various states passed laws that made it a crime to loiter or be unemployed. Freed slaves had no businesses and no white employer was going to offer a Negro paid employment in the South. Consequently, Negros were rounded up en masse and carted off to jail. There, they were put to work in various mines, fields and plantations all over the state -without compensation. Through the court convictions, many of the states immediately sent the now freed former slaves back into slavery after the civil war.
Other Negro crimes
Though the Negros worked seven days as a slave, they were soon labelled as lazy and criminals. Under the Jim Crow laws, they were locked up for crimes such as speaking to a white person with a wrong tone, drinking at a fountain for whites only, looking admiringly at a white woman or simply just walking into the ‘wrong’ environment. There are many cases of Caucasian women accusing Negro men of rape or attempted rape. In modern times, many such cases have been dismissed with DNA evidence. However, such evidences only emerged after several decades of unjust incarceration.
In the 1970’s the crimes changed to drug related ones. Cocaine and marijuana decimated Negro populations across America. With it came widespread convictions for drug possession and trafficking. Drug addiction was rampant and the arrests destroyed the black family unit. It is therefore ironic that today, heroine addiction is ravaging Caucasian homes in North America, but there are no arrests. Instead, funds are being mobilized to tackle the crises as a public health issue. Worse still was the revelation that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) had played a central role in flooding black communities with illegal crack cocaine in the 1970’s and 80’s.
Prison statistical observations
Overall, blacks are five times more likely to be incarcerated than whites for the same offense. In Oklahoma and New Jersey, that figure goes up to ten times. In 11 states of the federation, 1 in 20 black men were in prison (see here). Between the ages of 20-34, that figure rises to 1 in 9 black men (see here). The black man spends his prime and most productive years in a correction facility as a slave of the system.
There are more African American males in prison than in universities and colleges nationwide. The main reason for the disproportionate number of African American incarceration is the war on drugs that started in the 1980’s under Ronald Reagan. Six years after Reagan’s term, a grant was filed offering monetary reward to prisons that increased their prison population. This turned the prisons into one huge plantation in need of more slave labor.
Ohio State University law professor Michelle Alexander showed that there are more blacks in US prisons or under the justice system watch now than there were slaves in 1850 (see here).
What these all mean is that due to incarcerations, the Negro is working for no compensation for long periods of his life. This puts him and his family at great economic disadvantage compared to other racial groups in America.
Looting of Africa
It is not a secret that African economies have been mostly hijacked by Western powers (sometimes at gun point literally). That was the whole point of colonialism. When European Monarchs finally left the continent, those countries already owed massive debts, which have not been fully paid off till this day. Right from independence, these African nations became subservient to the West. To get out of debt, many of these countries have had to sell off their resources to Europe.
Europe has never served another
If the troubles and wars of Europe are Jacob’s trouble, which foreign entity brought it upon them? Europe’s wars are wars of greed. They have been slaughtering each other since before Alexander the great. Powerful families tried to gain control of the continent by force of arms. Europe has never been servants to non-Europeans; the contrary was the case. Even under Moorish rule, Europeans were free. They are neither genetically built for the outdoors nor for hard labor.
The First World War was fought to gain control of the non-European ‘middle east’ and its vast oil resources. The second war was fought because Germany and its allies wanted to be the power and master race to rule the whole world.
Before both of these ‘world’ wars, Europeans invaded Asia, the Americas, Australia and Africa. After the second world war, states with Europeans in power (USA, Nato etc) invaded the Koreas, Vietnam, Iraq, Iran and financed many more insurgencies all over the world. The reality is that since 1922, trouble did not come to Europe. Rather, Europe exported terror to the rest of the world after.
I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity
Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the Lord; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid. – Jeremiah 30:10
During the time of trouble, Jacob will be away from the land of Israel and in captivity. Many of the promises given to Israel were tied to their possession of the land in Canaan. By expelling them from the land, those promises automatically became unattainable to the people.
Regarding the time of trouble starting in 1922, that is just not reality since it is during this time that the Caucasian Ashkenazis began returning to Jerusalem as Jews. That return still continues to this day. By itself, it is strong evidence that the Ashkenazi Jews are not the descendants of Biblical Israel. We will see more of that under the section of the time of the gentiles.
Jacob shall return and be in rest, be quiet and unafraid
Israel (except a small remnant) is either in captivity or out of the promised land for the entire duration of his trouble. Therefore at the end of this very difficult time, the Most High will bring the people back. They will not only return, but they will be at rest, be quiet and none will make them afraid again.
Here is the question, what is all the noise coming out of the Middle East these days? If the Europeans ‘returning’ to the land are a fulfilment of Scriptures, why are there so many wars in the Middle East? Why are there so many bomb shelters all over the state of Israel? Why is every boy and girl mandated to go through military conscription for two or three years depending on your gender? Why is Israel compelled to be one of the very few nuclear armed countries? In all, the state of Israel has fought eight wars, two Palestinian intifadas and a number of broader Arab-Israeli conflicts since 1948. That is not a nation at rest, not a people who are quiet and unafraid.
The Europeans are therefore not the seed of Jacob nor their presence in the land a fulfilment of Scripture as they claim. Neither is the holocaust the trouble spoken of in the Bible. None of the features described so far in this article bear witness to it.
End of all nations whither I have scattered thee
For I am with thee, saith the Lord, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished. – Jeremiah 30:11
After the Egyptian captivity in the book of Exodus, the Most High destroyed Egypt. First, at the red sea, then the Persians arrived, then the Greeks, Romans, Arabs and finally the British. These empires gradually destroyed Egypt and today, you will scarcely see any of the original black Egyptians left in the land.
In Jeremiah 30, the Most High is saying that he will destroy the nations in which the seed of Jacob has been afflicted. This destruction will involve many nations not just one as was the case in Egypt. Every nation that was involved in bringing the trouble to Jacob will meet a very violent end.
He that leads into captivity shall go into captivity and he that kills with the sword shall be killed with the sword (Revelation 13:10). With what measure we mete to others, so shall it be measured unto us too (Matthew 7:2). He who has an ear let him hear for the Most High is not mocked. What men sow is what they will reap (Galatians 6:7). If you deal violence, you will meet violence.
So here is another question. If Jacob’s trouble is the European fatalities since 1922, which nations are to be destroyed according to Jeremiah 30:11? That’s right, no one knows because Europe was afflicting itself. Europeans were not taken captives or exiled anywhere outside of European borders. The theory that Hitler moved to Argentina and died in old age doesn’t count. If he did go there, it wasn’t as a slave.
Japan, Germany and Italy were the ‘primary’ aggressors during the second world war. Have they been destroyed? Certainly not, instead, they are ranked the 3rd , 4th and 9th biggest economies in the world today. Other than the dropping of atomic bombs, these countries have profited the most from WWII.
There is none to plead thy cause
For thus saith the Lord, Thy bruise is incurable, and thy wound is grievous. There is none to plead thy cause, that thou mayest be bound up: thou hast no healing medicines. – Jeremiah 30:12-13
During the time of trouble, Jacob will be afflicted physically and subjected to all manner of diseases. Nobody will be interested in pleading their cause or relieving their pain. Instead, they will only seek to make it worse. American history is full of atrocities committed against the Negro. We have read about black babies used as alligator bait. Negros were used for all kinds of experiments including the infamous Tuskegee syphilis experiments. As far back as the 19th century, slaves were routinely bought specifically for the purpose of medical experimentation. Countless slaves were operated upon without anesthesia simply as an anatomy exploration. In modern times, these experiments are carried out on the African continent. An example is the clinical trials of trovafloxacin (Pfizer) for the treatment of meningitis in Kano, Nigeria in 1996.
Though slavery officially doesn’t exist, we have seen the images and reports of Arabs in Libya selling Negroes as slaves in recent months. This is 2018 not 1818 yet nobody is doing anything about it. After a few politically correct statements for the optics, nobody really cares; there is none to plead thy cause.
Murder in the Hospitals
That thou mayest be bound up: thou hast no healing medicines
It is also known that in some places, Negros are denied required medication simply because those are reserved for non-colored people. I personally met a dear lady in Europe who was a victim of the system. She was a kind woman who opened her home for immigrants, students and poor locals who came to her for help. She would feed them and temporarily house them without receiving payment. Unfortunately, years earlier, she had a blood transfusion and acquired hepatitis C at the local hospital. When the hospital error was detected and compensation paid out to the predominantly Caucasian patients, she was not contacted. After reporting to hospital with features of hepatitis, she was told the itching was an allergy and given antihistamines with advice to be drinking glucose drinks.
At the time I met her, she was in liver failure, itching, swollen all over and having regular nose-bleeds. I asked her to request for a liver scan; which she did and was told everything was normal. I informed her that they were lying to her. She therefore flew to the USA to see a distant relative who was a physician. He repeated the scan and informed her she had probably 2-3 months left to live. She died less than two months after.
The astonishing thing about this is on her return, when she told the hospital she went to do a scan abroad, they wouldn’t let her see her physician again, they sent her to a different doctor. They were aware of what they had done to her, but they refused to give her healing medicines. She was a Nigerian by birth.
There is none to plead thy cause, that thou mayest be bound up: thou hast no healing medicines. – Jeremiah 30:13
I have often heard Caucasians ridicule blacks by calling them disease infested. The basis of this is the number of infectious agents and diseases that they are subject to.
The devastation of AIDS is still fresh in our memories. Many African villages were left with populations of only the elderly and very young. This was resulting from the high infection rate and fatality of the HIV virus among young adults of reproductive age. For many years, AIDS was untreatable and later on, the cost of treatment was unaffordable for most.
The prevalence was supposedly so high that as far as in Northern Europe, blood banks refused blood donations from Negros. They were automatically assumed to be carrying the virus.
Sickle cell disease and Ebola
HIV today is not the scary monster it once was. In its place has emerged the Ebola virus, which ravaged West Africa in 2014. There is no cure available, the mainstay of treatment is containment.
These are not the only sicknesses that afflict the Negro. There are other endemic ones like the sickle cell anemia. This is an exclusively Negroid inherited disorder. An estimated 250,000 children are born worldwide annually with this disorder. And in America, 1 in 500 African American babies are born with the disease while 1 in 13 carry the sickle cell trait. At the end of 1995, the mortality rate of black children with sickle cell disease was 1.5%. Intervention is focused on preventing crisis outbreaks by early treatment of the underlying precipitating conditions like infections and dehydration. There is no cure… thou hast no healing medicines.
We have probably heard about the biological weapons programs that were initiated by a number of western countries including the USA. I know there are some who claim this is all a conspiracy theory. However, documented evidence indicates that the Europeans used smallpox to depopulate the Americas and Australia. The colonials sent blankets spiked with the smallpox virus to the natives at winter. The rest as they say is history.
We should therefore not be surprised that Africans and the third world claim that AIDS, Ebola and the Zika virus are biological weapons designed to decimate their populations. The CCR5-Δ32 mutation in the CCR5 gene gives immunity against many strains of the HIV AIDS-causing virus, the plague and smallpox. Is it a coincidence that this mutation is found only in Europeans (Including Ashkenazi Jews), 2% of West Asian and North African populations. It is completely absent in East Indians, black Africans and Native American Indians.
The US special Virus programme
I found an interesting article on HIV and the US special virus programme; here is a quote from it:
The United States narrated in 1971 in one of the 15 progress reports of the development of HIV/AIDS, that Nazi sheep VISNA Disease, which had not YET been associated with human disease. See page 39, progress report #8 (1971), U.S. SVCP (1948 – 1978). Shortly thereafter, the United States was ready to associate the Nazi sheep disease, VISNA with human disease. That disease is HIV, according to the United States from their official proceedings. See, PROC NAS Vol. 83, pp. 4007 – 4011, June 1986. The science paper concludes ‘HIV/AIDS evolved from Nazi sheep VISNA disease’. To further show the co-mingling of HIV/AIDS and VISNA, Dr. Robert Gallo displays electron microscopes of the ‘identical’ nature of the HIV/AIDS and VISNA at Science, Vol. 223, pp. 173 – 177, January 1985.
Dr. Boyd Graves sued the US claiming the government created the deadly disease (HIV) in a secret program designed to kill African-Americans.
Various people have claimed that the global reach of AIDS happened because the incidence of CCR5-Δ32 mutation among Caucasians was much lower than previously expected. This made them also susceptible to the virus. It is worth noting that the cure for AIDS had been patented well over 10 years before it became available to the public.
An enemy will wound thee
All thy lovers have forgotten thee; they seek thee not; for I have wounded thee with the wound of an enemy, with the chastisement of a cruel one, for the multitude of thine iniquity; because thy sins were increased. – Jeremiah 30:14
During these times of trouble, Israel will no longer be recognised by her former allies, they are forgotten.
How will all these afflictions come? It is by the wound of an enemy. I used to think that this passage was saying that the Most High will be an enemy to Israel. But that is not so. He is saying that he will use an enemy (a very cruel one) to inflict the blows that will bring Jacob to his knees.
Has there ever been more cruelty shown to a people that surpassed the slave trade in Europe, Arabia and especially America? Every atrocity committed against Jacob would be through an enemy, an old one at that.
The emergence of an old enemy
Here is an interesting fact; the Israelites were enslaved in Egypt under the invading Hyksos dynasty. These foreign Pharaohs had the same Y-DNA haplogroup as modern Europeans. They made the first failed attempt at blanqueamiento in Egypt. Note that the Hyksos came first as traders, then invaded Egypt before enslaving the Israelites (see here). They were not enslaving the Native Egyptians.
Likewise, the European colonials came to America as traders, invaded the land and shipped slaves in from the West African Kingdom of Juda. This article has a map used by the slave traders to find Israelites in West Africa.
The Hyksos were identified as Canaanite tribes that came from the east of Egypt. They had Canaanite names and worshipped Canaanite gods. After they were driven out, they went eastwards and later Northwards into Europe. There they mixed with the Japhetic bloodline and formed part of the European race of today. How am I so sure of this?
Canaan dwells with Shem and Japheth
And he said, Blessed be the Lord God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. – Genesis 9:26-27
Canaan is therefore joined to both Shem and Japheth.
The segment of humanity that will be claiming other nation’s territory around the world is Canaan (book of Jubilees). He is however mixed with Japheth according to Genesis 9. They are literally inseparable (except by Y-DNA). We are able to identify the presence of Canaan because the Hyksos were identified as such before they merged with Japheth.
Perhaps you don’t believe me? Ask yourself this question: why would a people call themselves by the name of a Phoenician (Canaanite) goddess Europa? Why would there be so much representation of the Canaanite god baal (bull, Odin, Zeus) all over the continent. Why is there a bull and girl in front of the NYSE? Why would Europeans claim to have evolved from cave dwelling ancestors? According to the Bible, there is only one known people who dwelt in caves for a prolonged period. They were Canaanites (Job 30:5-9), the same people who now address the Negro using bywords. Together with Japheth, they are later referred to in the Bible as gentiles or heathen. Their time and rise to dominance is simultaneous with Jacob’s trouble.
One with Esau
Canaan is also one with Esau (Shem) through marriage (Genesis 36:2). The bloodlines are however not so simple and straightforward. We know from the book of Jasher that Esau-Canaan also went to the gentile Isles and merged with Japheth. I explained that union here. It is why geneticists have been able to identify three distinct genetic pools intermixed in modern Europeans. A very reliable marker to identify Canaan is the Neanderthal gene. It is the reason why all racial groups except sub-Saharan Africans have this gene that confers a pale skin and bright colored eyes and hair to its carriers. The original Neanderthals like Biblical Canaanites were cave dwellers in the Mediterranean region. Their gene was transferred to the offspring from their union with Japheth and Esau.
Through European expansion, Japheth-Canaan has enlarged his tent fulfilling Genesis 9:27. Through the Ashkenazi posing as Jews, Japheth-Canaan (Y-DNA haplogroup J) now dwells in the tent of Shem in Israel.
They that spoil thee shall be a spoil
To spoil someone is to loot their home and resources. This can be done directly under the threat of a gun, or by deception (fine print anyone?).
The first example that comes to mind is the sub-prime mortgage crisis that brought down the financial markets in the fall of 2008. The banks selectively issued toxic loans primarily to African Americans knowing that they could not repay it. In essence, they were spoiling the Negro, bankrupting him. When the markets crashed, Most of these homeowners owed more than the house was worth, so they just walked away from their houses and the banks simply sold it to someone else. To top it all, the banks were still compensated by the government. They called it a stimulus package. It was nothing but a massive transfer of wealth, the looting of a people.
How about Africa? There are many Israelite tribes still living in Africa. The land, oil, gold, diamond and even Uranium are being taken over by European and now Chinese corporations. The locals just do not have the resources to compete against the multibillion-dollar corporations. Africa and the Negro has been looted non-stop since the time of the transatlantic slave trade. This is Jacob’s trouble. It is a time to be spoiled.
They called thee an outcast
Since the trump presidency began, it is a common thing to hear racial slurs on the streets, classrooms and mall. Many African Americans are now harassed regularly and taunted to go back to Africa. Problem is, they haven’t been in Africa for almost 400 years and it’s doubtful whether they can even integrate there. They are essentially outcasts whose identities were stolen from them. They cannot trace their lineage beyond three or four generations. They even bear the paternal surname of the guy who probably raped one of their maternal ancestors.
They were snatched from their ancestral homes and their adopted home is attempting to vomit them out of the land.
They are a people with no home and a family with no father. The Most High will therefore be their Father and their home. He will be both their judge and their healer.
I will bring again the captivity of Jacob’s tents
The Most High will once again save Israel from captivity. And as in Egypt, He will severely punish the captors and oppressors of his people. The waste places will be rebuilt and the nation shall come to the Almighty with thanksgiving. Jeremiah 31 talks about the restoration that will take place at the end of this time of trouble. Both the exiled and captives will be redeemed by their redeemer King (Jeremiah 31:11). At that point, Jacob’s trouble will be over and so will the time of the gentiles.
Summary so far
To tie up this segment, Jeremiah 30 makes it clear that Jacob’s trouble is not a time of war, but of bondage, captivity, oppression and slavery. It is not talking about the European struggle for territory, but the captivity and afflictions of the Negro by foreign powers.
It ends badly for the wicked
Behold, the whirlwind of the Lord goeth forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked. The fierce anger of the Lord shall not return, until he have done it, and until he have performed the intents of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it. – Jeremiah 30:23-24
Though the seed of Jacob suffers, the Most High will not forget him. Vengeance belongs to the Almighty, and He will not hold His peace forever. His anger and wrath will be visited on the oppressor and all that afflicted Israel. The Most High will not rest until they all pay for what they did to the apple of His eyes.
This ending bears a very eerily similar conclusion to the prophecy in Genesis 15:
Judgement after 400 years of affliction
And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, AN HORROR OF GREAT DARKNESS fell upon him. And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a STRANGER IN A LAND THAT IS NOT THEIRS, and SHALL SERVE THEM; and they SHALL AFFLICT THEM FOUR HUNDRED YEARS; And also that nation, whom they shall serve, WILL I JUDGE: and afterward shall they come out with great substance. And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age. But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for THE INIQUITY OF THE AMORITES IS NOT YET FULL. – Genesis 15:13-16
Abraham was making a covenant with the Most High. In the process, he had a terrible nightmare about the horror to come. The Almighty explained; your seed will run into trouble. They will be taken to a strange land where they will suffer terribly. They will be servants, they will be afflicted, but I will judge the people that oppress your descendants. That judgment will come when your enemy’s cup is full; when the iniquity of the Amorites is fulfilled.
An assurance was given to Abraham that though a terrible thing would befall his seed, they would be delivered and overcome. This is saying the same thing described in Jeremiah 30.
With each atrocity committed against Abraham’s descendants, the cup of wrath against their oppressors got fuller. The Most High has not forgotten what they did; He is waiting for their cup to run over. Then His wrath will be unleashed like a destructive and consuming fire.
There is never a power vacuum
All through biblical history, a fierce battle has raged between good and evil, between Israel and the heathen. When Israel rises, the heathen fall and vice versa. By its very definition, to rise means you are getting above something or someone. So, naturally, when you rise, those below you become subject to you. The difference in outcome depends on how those above treat the ones below them.
Israel rose above the heathens
We read about the wisdom of King Solomon and how the Queen of Sheba famously came to test his wisdom (1 Kings 10:1-3). Solomon played along and answered all her questions. I can’t imagine Donald Trump reacting the same if an African princess came to the white house just to quiz him.
So king Solomon exceeded all the kings of the earth for riches and for wisdom. And all the earth sought to Solomon, to hear his wisdom, which God had put in his heart. – 1 Kings 10:23-24
He was very rich and powerful, yet he was approachable by all peoples. 1 Kings 4:24 says that Solomon had peace all around him and Israel dwelt in safety. He treated the people right, so, they had no problems with him. This is the result of good rising above evil.
There is never a vacuum in leadership on earth. Remember the story of Noah after the flood? There was always a bird ruling the sky (see here). If it wasn’t the bird of peace (dove), it was that of death and the curse (raven).
When the wicked rule, people mourn
When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn. – Proverbs 29:2
When the reign of Solomon came to an end, good fell and evil prevailed. The Solomon era peace has never returned to this earth till this day. What we see is evil rulers who oppress the people provoking revolt and turmoil. The powerful put the weak in chains and force them into servitude. In the process, they loot or destroy the home of the oppressed. They dish out pain and tragedy; the people mourn, but the oppressor does not care.
There are no people on earth who have experienced this brutality more than the Israelites. It happened in Egypt, Babylon and under the Romans. Yet, none of these fits the Genesis 15 prophecy more closely than the transatlantic slavery. Why do I say this?
Well, Joseph and his brethren had lived in Egypt for three generations before slavery started (Genesis 50:23). So, Egypt could not have been a strange land to them as described in Genesis 15. Practically all the people that were enslaved were ‘Egyptians’ by birth. Furthermore, the book of Jasher makes us to understand that Moses brought out the Israelites after 210 years of affliction in Egypt (not 400). The Babylonian captivity was for 70 years (not 400) while the Roman affliction was primarily in Judea their homeland (not a strange land). America on the other hand was a place that had never been their home and one where they arrived on slave ships (Deuteronomy 28:68). The affliction /slavery is in its 399 year now.
The Most High sees everything
What the wicked forgets is that the eyes of the Most High is constantly watching.
For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars. – 2 Chronicles 16:9
Because evil rulers do foolish things, then their lives are full of wars. The wars of Europe are not Jacob’s troubles, but the result of foolish and greedy men acting unwisely. Jacob’s trouble is all about slavery and oppression, but the Most High will deliver them at the end. He is patiently watching and measuring the acts and iniquities of the heathen.
The wicked is the tool that brings Jacob’s trouble
Reading through Jeremiah 30, we observe that Jacob did not afflict himself. He did not put a yoke or bond on himself. Neither did he poison his own food and drink to make himself sick. The enemy referred to as the wicked did all of that. Jacob was not a servant to himself, neither did he prey on himself. Therefore the teaching that Europeans killing Europeans, or that Irish indentured service was Jacob’s trouble is nothing but hogwash. The oppressor was a different people, an enemy bloodline.
Therefore the Most High will deliver Jacob from his oppressor. Nowhere in Jeremiah 30 does the Scripture indicate that the Almighty will deliver Jacob from himself. Rather, it says that through his troubles, the wicked will rule over him and afflict him. But when his time is up, when his iniquity is full, he will be destroyed and Jacob set free.
The overlap of Biblical prophecy
When we study scriptures, we realize that prophecies overlap quite often. For instance, we know that the house of Israel was prophesied to go into exile and peace would be lasting when they return to their land afterwards. We see this in Ezekiel 20:23, Zechariah 10:9, Jeremiah 30:10 and Jeremiah 31:10 among others. But many of those prophecies also point to the enslavement of Judah in the four corners of the earth. This is a prophecy overlap that I believe also works in the case of Jacob’s trouble. Both houses are affected. The northern kingdom is exiled as a large bloc from the land while the southern kingdom is scattered worldwide through slavery.
The times of the Gentiles
Traditionally, the time of the Gentiles is associated with grace, mercy and salvation for a people previously deemed unworthy of it. The Christian church teaches that under the old covenant the Gentile is condemned. Under the New covenant, grace for salvation is available through Christ to all. Though grace may indeed be available for all, this however is not the Biblical description of the time of the Gentiles. Let’s take a look.
Jacob’s trouble overlaps with the time of the gentiles
The most quoted reference for the time of the Gentiles is seen in the New Testament.
And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that THE DESOLATION THEREOF IS NIGH. Then let them which are in Judæa flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and WRATH upon this people. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the TIMES OF THE GENTILES be fulfilled. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. – Luke 21:21-28
The time of desolation occurs at the same time as that of the Gentiles beginning. The desolation had been prophesied in Genesis 15, Jeremiah 30 and Ezekiel 30 (more on this chapter later). It is a time of wrath upon the people. This Scripture in Luke indicates that Jacob’s trouble and the time of the Gentiles are the same entity.
Parallels between Jeremiah 30 and Luke 21
Several things are common to both passages. This time in the Israelite history will be a time of distress, of enslavement and death at the hands of an enemy. The people would be kicked out of the land because the Most High is angry with them. In their place, another will possess the land for a while. The enemy would rule (it will be his time). The Gentiles would tread down on the land and the people; this is the times of the Gentiles. At the end of it all, the time of this enemy is completed or fulfilled (full in Genesis 15:16) and the Israelites would be freed. And there will be distress among all the Nations that afflicted them. Those nations that oppressed the Israelites (Judeans) would then be judged and the Israelites would be redeemed at the return of their redeemer kinsman and King.
The main difference here is that the Scripture in Luke 21 identify this enemy as the Gentile nations.
The oppressors are a mingled people
The Genesis 15 and the Luke 21 accounts appear to identify two different nations as the oppressors. The former identifies the Amorites (Canaanites), while the latter identifies the Gentiles (Japhetic bloodline). The Amorites are a Canaanite people who several scholars have identified as the Aryan race. History further teaches us that the Aryans moved to the island of the Gentiles with who they are now intermixed.
Knowing this, we then realize that the references to Jacob’s troubles in Genesis and Jeremiah are not contradictory at all. The Amorites became Gentiles and are now identified as a part of the European family.
These are the people who enslaved Israel and brought about Jacob’s trouble. By scanning history to identify who the Europeans enslaved, it is easier to Identify who Jacob really is.
Both times are two sides of the same coin
Jacob’s trouble is brought about by the Gentiles/heathen. Consequently both occur at the same time. As the house of Israel falls, the heathen nations of the Gentile isles rises. The same prophecy brings about both, and neither can exist without the other. We saw it in Genesis 15 and Jeremiah 30. Then it was further expounded in Luke 21.
An era of wrath, not of grace
In all the three chapters that we have seen so far, the time of the Gentiles is a time of wrath and vengeance. It is not the time of grace that the Church has traditionally taught.
We have been told that the time of grace/Gentiles is for the heathen to get saved. And when that time is over, no gentile will be saved again. When we study the passages of scripture, we know that Jacob’s trouble ends with Israelites returning to the land. When that happens, the time of the Gentiles will be over and the Most High will focus on Israel alone.
The problem with this teaching on grace is that the Jew-ish people moved into Israel in 1948. If those were the Israelites, then the supposed time of grace has been over for 70 years. The question then is why is the Church still evangelizing? How is it that there is still grace to save the gentiles? This doesn’t add up, something is wrong with the traditional interpretation.
What is grace?
According to the dictionary, grace has a few definitions. The first is elegance, or refinement of movement. It is a poise, finesse, agility or nimbleness. It is an ability to do things better with less friction. The opposite of this is stiffness. It is interesting that the Most High often complained about Israel being a stiff-necked people. It makes sense that they would need grace.
Another definition of grace is a period allowed for payment of a debt or compliance with a Law. It is an extension granted as a favour. It is a deferment, postponement or reprieve. Compliance with the Law is still mandatory. Grace is not a license for lawlessness, neither is it an escape from judgement. It is just a stay of execution of a sentence.
This would explain why Paul asked the question “Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?” (Romans 6:1).
The Law is still in effect
Contrary to Church teachings, none of the definitions of grace actually means that the Law of Moses is no longer in effect. If anything, it means you are given an ability to obey the Law by the indwelling of the Spirit.
How can I be sure of this? Well, the Messiah himself said that if you love me, you will obey my commandments (John 14:15). What commandments was he referring to? He meant the Law of course.
We see this even more clearly in the story of the rich young man.
And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but IF THOU WILT ENTER INTO LIFE, KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS. He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. – Matthew 19:16-21
If you will enter into life, you must keep the commandments. In case we are confused about which of the commandments, he lists some of them to be clear. That is the Instruction from the Messiah. The first thing is to keep the Law. Then if you wish to be perfect, give everything up and follow Him into ministry.
Is the Law really done away with?
This is a very popular teaching in Christianity today. So where in the scriptures does it say so? The Messiah definitely never said it. We just saw in Matthew19:16-21 where he said you must keep the commandments to enter into life.
This popular teaching on the Law has its foundation in Ephesians 2.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. – Ephesians 2:8-9
This passage is actually saying that the Law itself has no power to save a man, because salvation is a gift.
If we continue reading this chapter till the 15th verse, we see a passage that people routinely take out of context.
Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace. – Ephesians 2:15
This passage has often been interpreted to mean the law is done away with. To me, in the context of the chapter, all this verse says is that the enmity between Jew and Gentile is done away with through Christ. That’s why the chapter talks about reconciliation of both bloodlines into one. The law of commandments is talking about those rules that say a Jew should not sit beside a gentile, nor share a meal with him etc. They are not the commandments, but the social laws that were enacted to enforce the commandments. law of commandments contained in ordinances are the Jewish traditions that created a perennial enmity with the Gentiles.
The Law is not the enemy of the Most High, sin is. This passage in Ephesians 2 indicates that Christ abolished the enmity through those Jewish ordinances that caused the people to sin by hating the Gentiles. How am I sure he was not referring to the whole Law?
The Law is not abolished
Well, here is what he said earlier:
Think not that I am come to DESTROY the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till ALL be FULFILLED. – Matthew 5:17-18
EVERY law will be in place until EVERY law is fulfilled; It is an all or none situation. Abolish is the same as destroy the Law. The Messiah knew that people wanted the easy way out. They did not want the responsibility of obedience. There was a desire to live as they wished (just like the heathen) and still enjoy the benefits of redemption.
The Messiah simple told them – don’t use me as your excuse; the Law will still stand till the end (paraphrased).
I expect some people to say that this statement was before his death after which he fulfilled all things. To that I will say, what about Luke 21:7-28? Were those things fulfilled when he died? When were there earthquakes in divers places? Was the desolation fulfilled at His death? Are you now redeemed from the earth? If all those things were not fulfilled, then the Law still stands.
In Acts 10:10-17 Peter had an experience with unclean animals. In a trance he was commanded to kill and eat them; which he refused to do. This incidence has often been cited as the Most High telling us that the unclean meats can now be eaten. To understand a vision, it is often reliable to see what the receiver of the vision thought. The interpretation to eat unclean animals seems like the most obvious interpretation. However, Peter didn’t seem to think so.
Now while Peter doubted in himself what this vision which he had seen should mean, behold, the men which were sent from Cornelius had made enquiry for Simon’s house, and stood before the gate. – Acts 10:17
He apparently doubted the most obvious interpretation. While he waited, the Spirit gave him the true interpretation. – The gentiles could receive salvation.
The rest of the chapter was describing how gentiles could also receive salvation just as the people of Nineveh (Jonah 3:5-10). It does not describe how to eat grilled pork chops or deep fried calamari.
Some even claim that Peter’s refusal to kill and eat resulted in the Most High rejecting him and choosing Paul to reach the gentiles. That is false, according to acts 10, Peter did preach to gentiles. Also see acts 15:7, where he states that he was chosen to convert gentiles.
Time of gentiles is a cloudy day
For the day is near, even the day of the Lord is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time of the heathen. – Ezekiel 30:3
The time of the gentiles (heathen) is not the great period we have been told it is. It is a cloudy day, a dark day, a day the Most High will vent His rage upon the people. This is not a blessed day, but an evil one.
The time of the heathen does not speak of salvation, but of the sword, of fire, captivity and much pain. It is a time of affliction in Egypt, Ethiopia, Libya, Lydia(Turkey), Pathros, Sin, Zoan, Noth and several other Islands.
Why is the fury of the Most High poured on these people? What did they do and why are they set out for special punishment. I am certain most of us can understand the case of Egypt for enslaving Israel. But Noth? We probably never even heard of these places. Even if we have, they weren’t even the worst people on earth. Note that in Ezekiel 30:12, the Egyptian land will be sold into the hands of the WICKED. Let me rephrase that – the wicked will own the deeds to the land of Egypt, the Egyptians were nice fellas compared to these new guys coming.
In my previous article on the Hyksos of Egypt, I showed that the Pharaohs who enslaved Israel were immigrants, and not the native Egyptians. This is important for those wondering why the original black people of Egypt have become almost extinct from the land. The original people on these lands were not even the wicked, so the new guys must be worse. But who are the people in these lands that were being punished?
A time to afflict Israel
The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the Jews which dwell in the land of Egypt, which dwell at Migdol, and at Tahpanhes, and at Noph, and in the country of Pathros, saying. – Jeremiah 44:1
Many of the people dwelling in those lands were Israelites. They were being punished because they came short when much was expected of them.
But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. – Luke 12:48
It is for this reason that the Israelites are punished while the much more wicked heathen possess their habitation instead.
Here is a passage that confirms that the Most High was removing Israelites from those lands.
And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the SECOND TIME to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. – Isaiah 11:11
The people would be removed from the land more than once.
Jerusalem is not the dirt, but the people.
And Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the TIMES OF THE GENTILES be fulfilled.
I have often heard people commenting about this passage stating that this prophecy is still ongoing because the Ashkenazi are not in total control of Jerusalem. The Palestinians still have access to the Al-Aqsa Mosque; so the gentiles are still treading on Jerusalem they say.
In my understanding however, that passage in scripture is not just talking about the dirt on the ground, but on the people. How do I know? Take a look at the passage below:
O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not – Mt 23:37
Jerusalem is described as killing the prophets and stoning the messengers. The last time I checked, the dirt on the ground doesn’t do these nor have children or form opinions. Do you see where I am going with this? When the Bible talks about Jerusalem, it is the Judean people that are being referred to. When the Most High wants to talk about the land, He simply calls it ‘the land’.
Therefore, when the Scripture says that Jerusalem is trodden down of the Gentiles, It is saying that the Gentiles will be afflicting and oppressing the sons of Jacob. Why? Because it is the times of the Gentiles.
Time of gentiles does not mean grace to save
There is no place in Genesis 15, Jeremiah 30 or Ezekiel 30, where the Bible says that the time of gentiles is a time of salvation. In fact, it is a time of destruction, death and desolation of the Israelites. It certainly doesn’t mean the salvation of the Amorites or the heathen.
Don’t get me wrong, gentiles and the heathen can be saved when they are aligned with true Israel. They thus bring themselves in alignment to the blessings of Abraham through being engrafted into Israel. It is impossible for the Gentile to be saved while severed from the Israelite body. Even the New Testament talks about this. You cannot hate the children of the Most High and claim salvation through grace from their Father. To think this is possible is mere folly.
I believe the misguided understanding of grace is why many will find the broad way that leads to destruction (Matthew 7:13). Only few will find the straight way and the narrow path to eternal life.
One shall rise, another shall fall
In Ezekiel 30, we see the fall of Egypt, Libya and the other nations and cities. But at the same time, we see the rise of the heathen that put Egypt to the sword.
Jeremiah 30 talks about the afflictions of Jacob. He is oppressed, enslaved and put to the sword in the day of his trouble. Yet all his sorrow and pain arises through a nation that shall put a yoke upon him. Jacob shall be spoiled and oppressed by those who a fore times were not a people. In other words, a-nobody became ruler over Israel.
In the same day, in one generation and one era, a people went into captivity and another rose to power in their stead. Both are opposites, like two sides of the same coin. According to the Scriptures we have read in Genesis, Jeremiah and Ezekiel, that coin will be flipped again in the future.
Times of the Gentiles is multiple events
The rise of the gentiles didn’t just start in one night, it is a multi-stepped event. It began when the Romans invaded Judea (Luke 21), and continued as the Romans pursued the fleeing Israelites around the Mediterranean and into North Africa. Many years later, the Europeans went into West Africa. There they captured people from the West African kingdom of Juda for the slave markets of Europe and the New World.
We have all read about the afflictions of the Negro in America; the emancipation, the Jim crow era and the war on drugs. These are all phases in the afflictions of the Negro. It is for this that the Scriptures calls it the TIMES (not time) of the Gentiles. The yoke was laid in stages until there was nowhere for the people to go.
Everywhere on earth, the negro is despised and ridiculed, they are afflicted and oppressed. But let everyone be aware, the Elohim of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is watching. And the iniquity of the Amorites is almost full.
Understanding the times and the seasons
And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do. – 1Chronicles 12:32
Many things were written about the different tribes of Israel. However, only one tribe was acknowledged as being populated by men of understanding. They were men who were full of wisdom and who could discern the move and will of the Most High concerning His people.
Do such men still exist today? Are there any watchmen left in Israel who keep watch over the people? Or have they all been swept away by the wave of the prosperity gospel?
The spirit of the Most High is on the move
There is a move in the spirit realm. The ministering Spirits are racing at a frantic pace all over the world. They are crying with a loud voice ‘Arise o house of Jacob, your afflictions are coming to an end’.
The Israelites are waking up in the Americas and beyond. The people are beginning to obey the Law of their Elohim again. A massive gathering of the people of the book has begun. Even the book of the last generation (book of Enoch) has been rediscovered.
Let him that have an ear hear. The times of the gentiles is coming to an end and the house of Jacob is set for redemption. Let every Israelite take heed, it is time to sow in righteousness and to reap in mercy. Let us break up our fallow ground: for it is time to seek the Most High, till he come and rain righteousness upon us (Hosea 10:12).
Hold fast, hold steady and keep the faith of our fathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
