Introduction 4.3

Seven years before Jesus returns, "the beast" (who is also called the Antichrist) will make a covenant with Israel, and at the middle of that period he will break that covenant by interfering with the temple sacrifices (Daniel 9:27), and will sit in the temple of God, showing himself to be God (2 Thessalonians 2:4). At this time, approximately three and a half years before Jesus returns, the Jews will reject the Antichrist, and the great tribulation on the Jews will begin. It is also referred to as "the time of Jacob's trouble" (Jeremiah 30:7). This bible study gives scriptural proof for the end-time tribulation on the Jews.

#4.31 The promises and prophesies of tribulation on the Jews

JEREMIAH 30:4-7
4 And these are the words which the LORD spoke concerning Israel and concerning Judah.
5 For thus says the LORD; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace.
6 Ask now, and see whether a man travails with child? Why 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: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.

DANIEL 7:19-22
19 Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, who was different from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, broke in pieces, and stamped the remainder with his feet:
20 And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spoke very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows.
21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;
22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.

Hebrew - Daniel 8:23-24 - English
וּבְאַחֲרִית מַלְכוּתָם כְּהָתֵם הַפֹּשְׁעִים יַעֲמֹד מֶלֶךְ עַז-פָּנִים וּמֵבִין חִידוֹת. 23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.
וְעָצַם כֹּחוֹ וְלֹא בְכֹחוֹ וְנִפְלָאוֹת יַשְׁחִית וְהִצְלִיחַ וְעָשָׂה; וְהִשְׁחִית עֲצוּמִים וְעַם-קְדֹשִׁים. 24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and shall practice, and shall destroy the mighty and holy people.

DANIEL 11:32-35
32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
33 And those who understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by plunder, many days.
34 Now when they shall fall, they shall be helped with a little help: but many shall cling to them with flatteries.
35 And some of them of understanding shall fall, to test them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.

Hebrew - Daniel 12:1 - English
וּבָעֵת הַהִיא יַעֲמֹד מִיכָאֵל הַשַּׂר הַגָּדוֹל הָעֹמֵד עַל-בְּנֵי עַמֶּךָ וְהָיְתָה עֵת צָרָה אֲשֶׁר לֹא-נִהְיְתָה מִהְיוֹת גּוֹי עַד הָעֵת הַהִיא; וּבָעֵת הַהִיא יִמָּלֵט עַמְּךָ כָּל-הַנִּמְצָא כָּתוּב בַּסֵּפֶר. 1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince who stands for the children of your people: and 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 your people shall be delivered, every one who shall be found written in the book.

ZECHARIAH 14:1-2
1 Behold, the day of the LORD comes, and your plunder shall be divided in the midst of you.
2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

Greek - Revelation 12:17 - English
καὶ ὠργίσθη ὁ δράκων ἐπὶ τῇ γυναικί καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ποιῆσαι πόλεμον μετὰ τῶν λοιπῶν τοῦ σπέρματος αὐτῆς τῶν τηρούντων τὰς ἐντολὰς τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ ἐχόντων τὴν μαρτυρίαν τοῦ ἰησοῦ χριστοῦ 17 And the dragon was angry with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Note: It is generally recognized that the Jews will go through great tribulation in the last days, and these scriptures point to the worst time of tribulation on this earth that man has ever known (Daniel 12:1; Matthew 24:21; Mark 13:19). On top of all the persecution, there will also be God's two witnesses prophesying to them, who will have power to prevent rain, to turn water into blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues as often as they will (Revelation 11:3-6). We must remember also, that the Jews who suffer this will be part of the body of Christ (#7), and many will die (Daniel 7:21; 8:24; 11:33-35). They will be resurrected with all the other believers on the last day of this present age (#3.1), at Jesus' second coming (#3.2), after the tribulation on the church (See #3.4). This whole section (#4) has refuted the error that only the Jews will go through tribulation in the last days, and therefore confirms that the teaching concerning a pre-tribulation rapture of the church is erroneous.
