The Messiah Warned...

by Mark Basden


The Messiah warned, "For in those days there will be tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the creation which God created until this time, nor ever shall be" (Mark 13:19). The prophet Daniel described it, "And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation, even to that time" (Dan. 12:1).

Jeremiah declared of this period of time, "Ask now, and see, whether a man is ever in labor with child? So why do I see every man with his hands on his loins like a woman in labor, and all faces turned pale? Alas! For that day is great, so that none is like it; and it is the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it" (Jer. 30:6-7).

God says of our end-time generation of His people, "Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: 'Because you have multiplied disobedience more than the nations that are all around you, have not walked in My statutes nor kept My judgments, nor even done according to the judgments of the nations that are all around you' - therefore thus says the Lord GOD: 'indeed I, even I, am against you and will execute judgments within your midst in the sight of the nations. And I will do among you what I have never done, and the like of which I will never do again, because of all your abominations. Therefore fathers shall eat their sons in your midst, and sons shall eat their fathers, and I will execute judgments among you, and all of you who remain I will scatter to all the winds.

"...'One third of you shall die of the pestilence, and be consumed with famine in your midst; and one-third shall fall by the sword all around you; and I will scatter another third to all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them. Thus shall My anger be spent, and I will cause My fury to rest upon them, and I will be avenged; and they shall know that I, the LORD, have spoken it in My zeal, when I have spent My fury upon them'" (Ezek. 5:7-13).

Hell on earth is about to erupt! We have been warned! God means what He says! And says exactly, precisely what He means to do!

The War to End All Wars

But the world, and God's people will be saved out of this excruciating time of horror and terror and woe. Jacob will be saved from utter destruction.

At the last moment, when all seems lost and the game is over, then God will intervene to SAVE His people! As Jeremiah said, "It is the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it" (Jer. 30:7). As Daniel said, "And at that time your people shall be delivered, every one who is found written in the book" (Dan. 12:1).

Then Christ will make war with the nations of the earth, bringing all the nations in compliance with the Kingdom of God, which we read in Jeremiah 25:29-33: "For, lo, I begin to bring evil (disaster) on the city which is called by my name, and should you be utterly unpunished? You shall not be unpunished: for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, says the Lord of hosts. Therefore prophesy you against them (mankind) all these words, and say unto them, The Lord shall roar from on high, and utter [text ends]
