The Time of Jacob's Trouble
What did Jeremiah mean by the time of Jacob's Trouble when he said, "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) Join Dr. Anne Davis as she takes us on a journey to uncover the deeper meaning of Jeremiah 30:7 and the time of Jacob's trouble.
Session 1: Life Application – Dr. Davis takes us to the time of Jacob’s trouble in Genesis. The story tells
us what causes Jacob’s trouble, which we can apply to our own lives. Then we learn how to
deal with distress. Finally, God tells us how to turn lemons into lemonade.
Session 2: Commentary in the Prophets – Passages about the Time of Jacob’s Trouble appear in
Jeremiah, Isaiah, Zephaniah and Joel. They are typically preceded by “language of
judgment”, which may sound condemning to our modern, western ears, but is an ancient
Hebraic form of exhortation and instruction. We are drawn to the rich information that
follows, which informs us about the role of the remnant in the end of time. The purpose of
these provocative passages is to encourage us to stand faithful for God today, so perhaps
God will find us worthy to participate in the remnant with the Messiah as our king and
Session 3: New Testament Commentary – The New Testament authors pondered over prophetic words
from the Hebrew Scriptures about the “Time of Jacob’s Trouble”. They identified some
passages that have already been fulfilled through Christ, at least in part, and others that are
still future. This session will explore both the present and the future New Testament
commentary as it relates to the Time of Jacob’s Trouble.
Session 4: Fulfillment in Revelation – Dr. Davis finds fulfillment in the Book of Revelation of prophetic
passages we found earlier in the Hebrew Scriptures and the New Testament. She discusses
several interesting topics including the disciples to whom Revelation is specifically written,
and the instruction that encourages these disciples to stand in the face of severe adversity.
Those who do may be declared worthy by God to participate in the remnant, which will
defeat Satan’s army under the leadership of Yeshua the Messiah during the Great Tribulation.
