Is It Really Jacob's Trouble Or Worldwide Trouble?

Will Gentiles Be Saved During Great Tribulation?

Question : Will Gentiles be saved during the time of Great Tribulation as it is specifically called as "Jacob's trouble"?

Answer : Greetings in Jesus wonderful name! I agree that the main purpose of the Great Tribulation is to turn the Jews towards God and make them repent and supplicate with mourning to help them receive their Messiah Jesus Christ
(Zech 12:10-14). At the same time we should understand that this point of view is seen by God according to the Jews and not according to the Gentiles. In other words, God is telling the Jews his plan for their lives and for the life of their nation.

Here is what the prophet Jeremiah says,
"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" (Jer 30:7, KJV). The end of all the trouble that the nation of Israel will face during this time of trouble is a glorious deliverance, the Lord promises He will save Jacob (referring to Judah and Israel) out of this time of great trouble. There has never been such a time that will be like this, even the Holocaust in which 6 million Jews were killed brutally by Hitler will not be that serious when compared to the end time trouble that will come. Even the evil man Hitler will look like a choir boy compared to the intensity of Great Tribulation that the nation of Israel will face from the hand of Anti-christ as the Bible says, "That day is great, so that none is like it.” (Jer 30:7).

We know that the Lord will first pick a people for HIS NAME from the Gentiles and along them a few Jews until the fullness of the Gentiles will be over and done in which the Church will be raptured to the New Jerusalem to be rewarded and live with the Lord forever and ever
(Acts 15:14; 2 Cor 5:10; 1 Thess 4:17; John 14:2-3). The time of the Gentiles will end with final kingdom of Antichrist (Luke 21:24; Rev 11:1-2; Daniel 7:24-25, 26-27), but the fullness of the Gentiles will end with the rapture of the Church before the Great Tribulation starts (Rom 11:25). After the Church is gone, God will return and rebuild the tabernacle of David which has fallen down in Jerusalem which is the capital of the nation of Israel (Acts 15:15-16). The rebuilding of the ruins and the setting up of the tabernacle will first start spiritually through cleansing the people of the nation of Israel through the severe tribulation of the Antichrist, through which God will separate the rebels from the elect who will go in to the Millennium, and purge all uncleanness of the nation of Israel from its midst in which two third will die and only one third of the entire population will be left as elect (Ezek 20:38; Zech 13:8, 9). The blinders upon the nation of Israel will start to come off by the outpouring of God's Spirit that will be poured on them during the Tribulation of those times to bring spiritual salvation first which will culminate in the physical salvation of Israel from the hand of Antichrist on the day of Armageddon in which Jesus the Christ will destroy the uncircumcised Assyrian and so all Israel will be saved on that day politically and also physically from annihilation and total destruction (Rom 11:26-27; Zech 14:3-4, 5, 9; Rev 19:19, 20-21, 16, 14; Isa 10:12; 14:24-27; Ezek 44:7-8; Mic 5:5-6). Both should not be mixed and confused.

We know as the Church will be raptured before the Great Tribulation will start within the second half of the Daniel's 70th Week, those who will choose to live within the Church in the unregenerate state of religiosity will not escape the Great Tribulation that will come as a snare upon the whole wide world
(Luke 21:34-35, 36). All those who will be left behind will come to see themselves as hypocrites at that time and many will only be given two choices to choose from, either to accept the seal of Antichrist on their forehead or their right arm and worship Antichrist or risk their life being beheaded as martyr for the testimony of God and His Christ (Rev 13:3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 10). At that time the believing Jews who will trust Christ for the first time in their lives during that time by the out pouring of the Holy Spirit, being deceived by the Jewish Rabbi's who will take up side deceitfully with the Jewish false prophet will try to bring great destruction upon his own people just for him to maintain his standing and friendship with Antichrist and continue to gain and amass riches and honor before the whole world (Zech 11:17; Rev 13:3, 11-12). He will deceive the Jewish population and the whole earth along with them to make them believe that he is the real Elijah that God has sent to Israel to reveal the true so called messiah the Antichrist, by bringing fire from heaven as Elijah of old did during his time on earth to draw the nation of Israel towards their Jehovah God and turn them away from the idols (Rev 13:13-14; 1 Kings 18:24, 36-39; 2 Thess 2:9-10, 11-12; Zep 3:11-12, 13). As the Jews always look for a sign by neglecting the doctrine which God has told them to watch out behind the sign of the prophet (1 Cor 1:22, 20-21; Deut 13:1-14, 15, 16-18; 18:15-22), as they will fail in their duty to watch and pray, they will be deceived by the deception that God will send towards them and once they will be deceived, they will have no option but to worship the image of the beast which is an idol or die as martyrs in which many will die (Rev 13:16-17, 18, 15). The remnant of Israel which will be purged through the Great Tribulation and supernaturally be protected by God will be one third of the entire population of the nation of Israel (Zech 13:9). These one third of the Jews will be protected supernaturally under the protection of the hand of God through the powerful ministry of the two prophets who will have the power of God in their hand to torment all those in all the earth who will want to kill them all who want to act against God's purpose and try to destroy the remnant, within which those one lakh forty four thousand Jews from the twelve tribes who will be converted through the ministry of the two prophets in their initial days on earth will act as the servants of God in spreading the message of Jesus Christ the Messiah of the whole world under the supernatural protection of the prophetic ministry of Elijah and Enoch. I believe that as the human striving through bio-medical tests to determine the twelve tribes of Israel and separate them will not fully succeed, Jesus will be the first person to reveal Himself supernaturally and will also reveal the tribes from which they have all come in to existence. Hence 12000 from each tribe will become end time chosen servants of God along with the two prophets upon whom no harm has power, for them to do the work of the ministry of the revelation of Jesus Christ through proclaiming him to all the earth from Jerusalem (Rev 7:3-8). Before Israel as a nation could be saved physically from the clutches of the evil power of Antichrist, I believe that at the end of three and a half years as the world will try to kill the prophets and slay them in streets of Jerusalem (Rev 11:7-10), at that time just like the living generation that was caught with the Church went on to be with the Lord directly before the Great Tribulation has started (1 Thess 4:16-17), these 144,000 servants of God as the firstfruits to God and to the Lamb will likewise be translated to go to heaven being redeemed from the earth as they all have not defiled with the religious woman of the abomination of desolation within the Jewish temple, but have stayed as virgins by speaking no deceit and living in holiness without fault by the power of the Gospel before God by choosing to follow the Lamb wherever he goes (Rev 14:1-8). Christ was the firstfruits to God when He rose from the dead along with the saints of Old Testament (1 Cor 15:20; Matt 27:52, 53), so also will be the 144,000 servants of God from the 12 tribes who are followers of Christ will be raised by God as firstfruits from the nation of Israel at the end of the Great Tribulation (Rev 14:1-5).

The angelic ministry of heaven will work along with these people and the Antichrist and the Jewish False Prophet will not be able to destroy them till the very end of the three and half year period of the Daniel's second half of time gets over after which they will be killed, and after three and half days they will rise up and be caught up to heaven
(Rev 11:3-6, ; 7:1-8, 7-10). Before the Great Tribulation starts within the time frame of the second half of the Daniel's 70th Week, the angelic proclamation and warning against worshiping the beast and his image by accepting to take the mark on his/her forehead or on his/her hand will happen through out the whole world through a complete angelic ministry that will work along with the Lamb from heaven and his 144,000 messengers who will work along with them to spread the message for the saints to persevere and keep the faith of Jesus around the world even at the cost of their own lives so that their labors and works might follow them (Rev 14:1-13). Many people who will help the saints through the Great Tribulation to give shelter and protect them through their faith in Christ among the Gentiles will be saved and enter the Millennium rule of Jesus Christ the Messiah at His Second Coming to the earth (Matt 25:31-46). The Gentiles who were spiritual harlots in their past days, but who will choose to stand for their faith and help the Jews who will be looking for survival through the Great Tribulation, will be accepted by the Lord in to the fold of His earthly Kingdom right in to the Millennial life of Glory (Matt 25:8-13; Heb 11:31; Jos 2:1-24; 6:17, 22-25).

Has Jesus spoken to the Church about the Great Tribulation and warned them?

Yes indeed, to the messenger of the sixth Church of Philadelphia Jesus said,
"Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth." (Rev 3:10). From the above verse we can clearly say that the truth of the Great Tribulation and the purpose for it does not end just in purifying the Jews through a test (Zech 13:9; Isa 48:10; Daniel 11:31-35), but it will also be a worldwide phenomenon where God will test the Gentiles and will give them a last chance to salvage the eternal life of Jesus Christ His Son in all the world before the Millennial judgment of all nations will begin in which the lambs and the goats will be separated forever (Matt 25:31-46).

The writer of all the Gospels including John who wrote his Gospel to prove the deity of Christ, have all mentioned of the worldwide Great Tribulation that will happen anytime after the abomination of desolation of which they have all warned the Church to avoid being left behind by being watchful and prayerful enough through salvation experience to get raptured when Jesus comes to take His Bride for Himself to His Father's house in heaven
(Matt 24:15-28; Mark 13:14-23, 32-37; Luke 17:20-37; 21:24, 25-27, 28, 29-33, 34-36; John 14:1-4). There is a elect among the Gentiles who will become martys by refusing the seal of Antichrist upon them and they will be called as the Tribulation-Saints.

Here are the number of Gentiles who will believe the Lord Jesus and risk their lives for Him :

"8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear. 10 He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints." (Rev 13:8-10)
. In other words as shown in the above verse, those Tribulation saints whose name is written in the Book of Life of the Lamb will not accept the mark of the beast which will be given to those who worship the image of the beast, and therefore they will all be killed as martyrs for the faith through their patience to choose death over life expecting the Lord to come again and raise them to live in the first resurrection for a thousand years with Him on earth and to continue this forever in the new earth (Rev 13:15-17; 14:9-13; 20:4-6; Heb 11:35, 36-37, 38-39). A Multitude from the Great Tribulation consisting of all the other Gentile nations as an innumerable multitude, will die for their faith patiently and will stand before the throne, clad in white robes, and palms in their hands, expecting themselves to be resurrected in their glorious body in a moment of time when Jesus will be returning back to the earth to rule for a thousand years.

The above scenario was what John the apostle saw and understood,
"13 Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?” 14 And I said to him, “Sir, you know.” So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. 16 They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; 17 for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”" (Rev 7:13-17).

John the apostle further foresaw when he said,
"14 Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle. 15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, “Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” 16 So He who sat on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped." (Rev 14:14-16). Thus the harvest of all the souls during the Great Tribulation will be the greatest soul harvest of all time till that date.

God call for humans to be saved before Millennial filtering of unbelievers and sending them to eternal damnation is this final harvest of souls
(Matt 25:31-46; 13:36-43, 47-52). This will be the last lifeline of God for all Gentiles to receive eternal life (Rev 14:6-7, 9-13; 1 John 5:11, 13; John 17:3).

So even if a person has been deceived by the falling away from the faith during the last moments before the rapture takes place, and therefore are left behind, even though they have missed the first chance, God's merciful second and last chance to receive eternal life will be given, and they will have the last great opportunity to accept the faith of Jesus and die as martyr for him during the Great Tribulation and therefore come again with Jesus to be resurrected and live with Him for a thousand years in His temple on earth
(2 Thess 2:3, 6-7, 8; Rev 20:4, 5-6; 1 Cor 15:50-58).

Thus I conclude to say that the Great Tribulation is mainly for the Jews, but it doesn't stop there, it will also be for the Gentiles to make them repent and receive the last chance of God to receive eternal life through martyrdom by faith and thus continue to enjoy the eternal friendship with God forever and ever. As the Church will be taken out of this earth before the Tribulation begins
(John 14:1-4), the Tribulation saints are never part of the Church but they will be separate body and a entity that will be given a special privilege to live and reign with Christ a thousand years in the temple of God on earth in their glorious body (Rev 20:4-6; 7:13-14, 15-17; Luke 12:37, 43-48).      

Much Blessings....
