Beginning Of Sorrows/Jacob’s Trouble
Jesus explained to his disciples about the end-times on the Mount of Olives. He referred to these events as ‘the Beginning of Sorrows.’ “And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows, Matthew 24:4-8
Sorrow: Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance – pain, sorrow, travail. Akin to odune; a pang or throe, especially of childbirth — pain, sorrow, travail.
This time is compared to birthing pangs of a woman who is about to give birth. She will have one hard labor pain and then it will subside, only to be followed by more and harder pains until the baby is born. This time is also called Jacob’s Trouble. Jeremiah 30:7 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.
For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:3.
A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world. John 16:21
And these are the words that the LORD spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah. For thus saith the LORD; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore 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. Jeremiah 30:4-7.
