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.
Here is SOP...
As the approach of the Roman armies was a sign to the disciples of the impending destruction of Jerusalem, so may this apostasy be a sign to us that the limit of God's forbearance is reached, that the measure of our nation's iniquity is full, and that the angel of mercy is about to take her flight, never to return. The people of God will then be plunged into those scenes of affliction and distress which prophets have described as the time of Jacob's trouble. The cries of the faithful, persecuted ones ascend to heaven. And as the blood of Abel cried from the ground, there are voices also crying to God from martyrs' graves, from the sepulchres of the sea, from mountain caverns, from convent vaults: "How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost Thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?" 5T 451
About four months since I had a vision of events all in the future. I saw the time of trouble, such as never was. Jesus told me it was the time of Jacob's trouble, and that we should be delivered out of it by the voice of God. Then I saw the four angels cease to hold the four winds. And I saw famine, pestilence and sword--nation rose against nation, and the whole world was in confusion. Then we cried to God day and night for deliverance, until we began to hear the bells on Jesus' garment. And I saw Jesus rise up in the Holiest, and as he came out we heard the tinkling of the bells and knew that our High Priest was coming out. Then we heard the voice of God which shook the heavens and the earth, and gave the 144,000 the day and hour of Jesus coming. Then the saints were free, united, and full of the glory of God, for he has turned their captivity. And I saw a flaming cloud come where Jesus' stood. Then Jesus laid off his priestly garment and put on his Kingly robe, and took his place on the cloud which carried him to the East, where it first appeared to the saints on earth--a small black cloud which was the sign of the Son of Man. While the cloud was passing from the Holiest to the East, which took a number of days, the synagogue of Satan worshipped at the saint's feet. Portland, April 6, 1846. BROADSIDE1 APR.06,1846
Jacob's experience during that night of wrestling and anguish represents the trial through which the people of God must pass just before Christ's second coming. The prophet Jeremiah, in holy vision looking down to this time, said, "We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. . . . 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." Jeremiah 30:5-7. PP 201
The path to freedom from sin is through crucifixion of self, and conflict with the powers of darkness. Let none be discouraged in view of the severe trials to be met in the time of Jacob's trouble, which is yet before them. They are to work earnestly, anxiously, not for that time, but for to-day. What we want is to have a knowledge of the truth as it is in Christ now, and a personal experience now. In these precious closing hours of probation, we have a deep and living experience to gain. We shall thus form characters that will insure our deliverance in the time of trouble. RH AUG.12,1884
As the members of the body of Christ approach the period of their last conflict, "the time of Jacob's trouble," they will grow up into Christ, and will partake largely of his Spirit. As the third message swells to a loud cry, and as great power and glory attends the closing work, the faithful people of God will partake of that glory. It is the latter rain which revives and strengthens them to pass through the time of trouble. Their faces will shine with the glory of that light which attends the third angel. RH MAY 27,1862
This, will be the time of Jacob's trouble, (Jer. 30:5-8) out of which, the saints will be delivered by the voice of God. WLF 12
A Crisis Makes God's Interference More Marked
From time to time the Lord has made known His manner of working. He is mindful of what is passing upon the earth. And when a crisis has come, He has revealed Himself and has interposed to hinder the working of Satan's plans. He has often permitted matters with nations, with families, and with individuals to come to a crisis that His interference might become marked. Then He has let the fact be known that there was a God in Israel who would sustain and vindicate His people.
When the defiance of the law of Jehovah shall be almost universal, when His people shall be pressed in affliction by their fellow men, God will interpose. The fervent prayers of His people will be answered, for He loves to have His people seek Him with all their heart and depend upon Him as their Deliverer.--RH June 15, 1897.
For a time the oppressors will be permitted to triumph over those who know God's holy commandments. . . . To the last, God permits Satan to reveal his character as a liar, an accuser, and a murderer. Thus the final triumph of His people is made more marked, more glorious, more full and complete.--3SM 414 (1904).
Affliction Purifies God's People
Soon there is to be trouble all over the world. It becomes everyone to seek to know God. We have no time to delay. . . .
God's love for His church is infinite. His care over His heritage is unceasing. He suffers no affliction to come upon the church but such as is essential for her purification, her present and eternal good. He will purify His church even as He purified the temple at the beginning and close of His ministry on earth. All that He brings upon the church in test and trial comes that His people may gain deeper piety and more strength to carry the triumphs of the cross to all parts of the world.--9T 228 (1909).
Afflictions, crosses, temptations, adversity, and our varied trials are God's workmen to refine us, sanctify us, and fit us for the heavenly garner.--3T 115 (1872).
Greater Jacob's trouble is a process, not an event. Many SDA will wake up expecting an event, but as the event goes away they are lulled back to sleep... we are expected to wakeup follow Jesus, get out of the cities and start growing our own food. This is what Jacob's Trouble is for, there is another Jacob's trouble where we are forced to flee into the mountains, with nothing but Jesus and ourselves, to escape the death decree.
In the mean time, come on SDA people wake up, get out of the cities, start growing your own food...as Jesus to heal you, get rid of your doctor drugs...
So come on SDA people wake up, get out of the cities, start growing your own food...as Jesus to heal you, get rid of your doctor drugs...
My thoughts as well as yours. Except the only difference was this, "get rid of your doctor drugs..."
Thanks so much.
Too premature. For some of us that have clinical disabilities.
Here is the latest this morning...
"Dow Jones in Freefall as Wall Street Begs for Stock Market Shutdown
Asset managers reportedly urged the Bank of England to shut the stock market to stop panic selling. Will the U.S. follow suit?"...https://www.ccn.com/dow-jones-in-freefall-as-wall-street-begs-for-s...
Panic stuff aside, has anybody done a clinical and technical study of the SARS COV19 virus, how it spreads, animal to human, nobody knows for sure if it spreads through the air on nano drops or dust, so all we are doing is washing our hands etc. Why would a disease outbreak in 2003, and also 1960, be a virus unknown to human immune systems before? Created in a lab? For example I use Avast virus software to attack brand new created viruses which it can as long as the new virus follows the program rules of older similar viruses. So the anti virus program attacks brand new unknown viruses with fair success. Our immune systems would do a similar job. Adding a slightly different 3D structure to a strange shape is not going to be a deter white cells from not recognising foreign invaders. Can find any technical journals on this.. can't find anything on the virus from a science viewpoint at all.
This is similar to the terrorists who knocked down the twin towers. It's a government ploy to bring on One world Government, the Bible speaks of the Lamb like powers globally speaking like a dragon. If this doesn't wake up SDA people, I don't know what will.
What does the Bible and SOP say about this?
Re 18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
The rich merchants are running this world into a deliberate crash, controlled to rob the last assets from the baby boomers, so what does Scripture say:
Come out of her, my people,
Get out into the country, away from the 5G, away from shops without food, into the country soil, where you grow your own food, live away from the 5G, and violence and other evils in the city. SDA layman Dave Westbrook out of cities message describes the SOP experiences best. Watch all his videos.
Well, looks like they will try this for a least 15 days, then we shall see how it plays out...
"Trump Announces New 15-Day Coronavirus Guidelines
Here is a good explanation in this study...
"THE LITTLE TIME OF TROUBLE
The great time of trouble, culminating in Jacob's trouble comes after the general
close of probation. But the little time of trouble occurs prior to that general close, and simultaneously with the giving of the loud cry by the faithful; see EW 85-86, 33.
In summary, the little time of trouble will bring trouble in several ways:
(1) The wicked will war against one another, although to a lesser extent than they
did before and after the loud cry.
(2) As the protecting Spirit is poured out on God's people, it is withdrawn from the
world. This gives Satan greater freedom to bring intensified crises to his own followers.
(3) Satan will bring desolations and natural disasters which will occur in various
places throughout the world.
(4) Satan, his demons, and his agents will blame Sabbathkeepers for the
disasters. This enrages the wicked against Sabbath keepers.
(5) Sunday law legislation will return power into the hands of Rome, and it will
use it to persecute Sabbathkeepers.
(6) The righteous will be persecuted by both Catholics and Protestants.
(7) Because of the no-buy-sell proviso, Sabbath keepers will suffer hardship to
one degree or another. "...http://www.sdadefend.com/MINDEX-E-F/End%20Time%2011.pdf
Does this sound like the COV19 global issue?
