Once the warning message is given to Israel, there will be a wave of events which will occur on the modern day nations of Israel.  God is very fair, He sends His watchman to give a warning message to the Nations of Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain, Canada, and the United States of America


Isa 9:8  The Lord sent a word against Jacob, And it has fallen on Israel.


The warning message tells of the sins of the nations and how they must repent and return to following and believing God.  If the nations will not repent and return to God then they will bear the brunt of Godís wrath this is in the form of four judgments which will kill 2/3rds of Israel with the plague, famine, wild beasts and war, the remaining 1/3rd will go into captivity.  Only 1/10th of Israel will actually come out of captivity.


Before this happens God warns the nations through His watchman. 


Eze 3:1  Moreover He said to me, "Son of man, eat what you find; eat this scroll, and go, speak to the house of Israel."


The scriptures reveal that the above destruction comes in waves, each one becoming worse, each time God waits and looks for Israel to repent and return to Him.  If they do not do this, the next wave of events will be worse than the one before it.  The following scriptures describe this terrible time just ahead of us now. 



Lev 26:16  I also will do this to you: I will even appoint terror over you, wasting disease and fever which shall consume the eyes and cause sorrow of heart. And you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.

Lev 26:17  I will set My face against you, and you shall be defeated by your enemies. Those who hate you shall reign over you, and you shall flee when no one pursues you.

Lev 26:18  'And after all this, if you do not obey Me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins.


Isa 9:10  "The bricks have fallen down, But we will rebuild with hewn stones; The sycamores are cut down, But we will replace them with cedars."

Isa 9:11  Therefore the LORD shall set up The adversaries of Rezin against him, And spur his enemies on,

Isa 9:12  The Syrians before and the Philistines behind; And they shall devour Israel with an open mouth. For all this His anger is not turned away, But His hand is stretched out still.


Amo 4:6  "Also I gave you cleanness of teeth in all your cities. And lack of bread in all your places; Yet you have not returned to Me," Says the LORD.


Deu 28:22  The LORD will strike you with consumption, with fever, with inflammation, with severe burning fever, with the sword, with scorching, and with mildew; they shall pursue you until you perish.

The 1st wave of events


Enemies rule over Israel.
Flee when none pursues.
Enemies will devour Israel.
Food shortage.
Consumption, fever, inflammation, and extreme burning.
Sword, blasting, mildew.


The Syrians before and the Philistines behind.


The above events do not paint a very nice picture, and yet this is only the 1st of the waves of events.  The time is indeed terrible.
Israel does not return to God and so we see that it is necessary for the 2nd wave of events to occur.



Isa 9:14  Therefore the LORD will cut off head and tail from Israel, Palm branch and bulrush in one day.

Isa 9:15  The elder and honorable, he is the head; The prophet who teaches lies, he is the tail.

Isa 9:16  For the leaders of this people cause them to err, And those who are led by them are destroyed.

Isa 9:17  Therefore the Lord will have no joy in their young men, Nor have mercy on their fatherless and widows; For everyone is a hypocrite and an evildoer, And every mouth speaks folly. For all this His anger is not turned away, But His hand is stretched out still.


Amo 4:7  "I also withheld rain from you, When there were still three months to the harvest. I made it rain on one city, I withheld rain from another city. One part was rained upon, And where it did not rain the part withered.

Amo 4:8  So two or three cities wandered to another city to drink water, But they were not satisfied; Yet you have not returned to Me," Says the LORD.


Deu 28:23  And your heavens which are over your head shall be bronze, and the earth which is under you shall be iron.

Deu 28:24  The LORD will change the rain of your land to powder and dust; from the heaven it shall come down on you until you are destroyed.


Lev 26:18  'And after all this, if you do not obey Me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins.

Lev 26:19  I will break the pride of your power; I will make your heavens like iron and your earth like bronze.

Lev 26:20  And your strength shall be spent in vain; for your land shall not yield its produce, nor shall the trees of the land yield their fruit.

A list of the 2nd wave of events


Break the pride of your power.
Withholding of rain.
Rain will be powder and dust.
Heaven as iron, earth as brass.
Trees will not yield their fruit .


If Israel does not repent then God sends the 3rd wave of events



Amo 4:9  "I blasted you with blight and mildew. When your gardens increased, Your vineyards, Your fig trees, And your olive trees, The locust devoured them; Yet you have not returned to Me," Says the LORD.


Deu 28:26  Your carcasses shall be food for all the birds of the air and the beasts of the earth, and no one shall frighten them away.


Lev 26:21  'Then, if you walk contrary to Me, and are not willing to obey Me, I will bring on you seven times more plagues, according to your sins.

Lev 26:22  I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, destroy your livestock, and make you few in number; and your highways shall be desolate.

List of the 3rd wave


Blasting and mildew.
Palmer worm eats vineyards.
Beasts of the earth and birds shall eat man.
Wild animals will kill man and eat livestock.
Seven times more plagues.



Isa 10:1  "Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees, Who write misfortune, Which they have prescribed

Isa 10:2  To rob the needy of justice, And to take what is right from the poor of My people, That widows may be their prey, And that they may rob the fatherless.

Isa 10:3  What will you do in the day of punishment, And in the desolation which will come from afar? To whom will you flee for help? And where will you leave your glory?

Isa 10:4  Without Me they shall bow down among the prisoners, And they shall fall among the slain." For all this His anger is not turned away, But His hand is stretched out still.


Amo 4:10  "I sent among you a plague after the manner of Egypt; Your young men I killed with a sword, Along with your captive horses; I made the stench of your camps come up into your nostrils; Yet you have not returned to Me," Says the LORD.


Deu 28:27  The LORD will strike you with the boils of Egypt, with tumors, with the scab, and with the itch, from which you cannot be healed.


Lev 26:23  'And if by these things you are not reformed by Me, but walk contrary to Me,

Lev 26:24  then I also will walk contrary to you, and I will punish you yet seven times for your sins.

Lev 26:25  And I will bring a sword against you that will execute the vengeance of the covenant; when you are gathered together within your cities I will send pestilence among you; and you shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy.

Lev 26:26  When I have cut off your supply of bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall bring back your bread by weight, and you shall eat and not be satisfied.

A list of the 4th wave


Oppress the widow and the needy.
Plagues of Egypt.



Isa 10:5  "Woe to Assyria, the rod of My anger And the staff in whose hand is My indignation.

Isa 10:6  I will send him against an ungodly nation, And against the people of My wrath I will give him charge, To seize the spoil, to take the prey, And to tread them down like the mire of the streets.

Isa 10:7  Yet he does not mean so, Nor does his heart think so; But it is in his heart to destroy, And cut off not a few nations.

Isa 10:8  For he says, 'Are not my princes altogether kings?

Isa 10:9  Is not Calno like Carchemish? Is not Hamath like Arpad? Is not Samaria like Damascus?

Isa 10:10  As my hand has found the kingdoms of the idols, Whose carved images excelled those of Jerusalem and Samaria,

Isa 10:11  As I have done to Samaria and her idols, Shall I not do also to Jerusalem and her idols?' "

Isa 10:12  Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Lord has performed all His work on Mount Zion and on Jerusalem, that He will say, "I will punish the fruit of the arrogant heart of the king of Assyria, and the glory of his haughty looks."

Isa 10:13  For he says: "By the strength of my hand I have done it, And by my wisdom, for I am prudent; Also I have removed the boundaries of the people, And have robbed their treasuries; So I have put down the inhabitants like a valiant man.

Isa 10:14  My hand has found like a nest the riches of the people, And as one gathers eggs that are left, I have gathered all the earth; And there was no one who moved his wing, Nor opened his mouth with even a peep."


Amo 4:11  "I overthrew some of you, As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, And you were like a firebrand plucked from the burning; Yet you have not returned to Me," Says the LORD.

Amo 4:12  "Therefore thus will I do to you, O Israel; Because I will do this to you, Prepare to meet your God, O Israel!"

Amo 4:13  For behold, He who forms mountains, And creates the wind, Who declares to man what his thought is, And makes the morning darkness, Who treads the high places of the earth The LORD God of hosts is His name.


Eze 24:21  'Speak to the house of Israel, "Thus says the Lord GOD: 'Behold, I will profane My sanctuary, your arrogant boast, the desire of your eyes, the delight of your soul; and your sons and daughters whom you left behind shall fall by the sword.


Deu 28:53  You shall eat the fruit of your own body, the flesh of your sons and your daughters whom the LORD your God has given you, in the siege and desperate straits in which your enemy shall distress you.

Deu 28:54  The sensitive and very refined man among you will be hostile toward his brother, toward the wife of his bosom, and toward the rest of his children whom he leaves behind,

Deu 28:55  so that he will not give any of them the flesh of his children whom he will eat, because he has nothing left in the siege and desperate straits in which your enemy shall distress you at all your gates.

Deu 28:56  The tender and delicate woman among you, who would not venture to set the sole of her foot on the ground because of her delicateness and sensitivity, will refuse to the husband of her bosom, and to her son and her daughter,

Deu 28:57  her placenta which comes out from between her feet and her children whom she bears; for she will eat them secretly for lack of everything in the siege and desperate straits in which your enemy shall distress you at all your gates.


Lev 26:29  You shall eat the flesh of your sons, and you shall eat the flesh of your daughters.

Lev 26:30  I will destroy your high places, cut down your incense altars, and cast your carcasses on the lifeless forms of your idols; and My soul shall abhor you.

Lev 26:31  I will lay your cities waste and bring your sanctuaries to desolation, and I will not smell the fragrance of your sweet aromas.

Lev 26:32  I will bring the land to desolation, and your enemies who dwell in it shall be astonished at it.

Lev 26:33  I will scatter you among the nations and draw out a sword after you; your land shall be desolate and your cities waste.

Lev 26:34  Then the land shall enjoy its sabbaths as long as it lies desolate and you are in your enemies' land; then the land shall rest and enjoy its sabbaths.

Lev 26:35  As long as it lies desolate it shall rest for the time it did not rest on your sabbaths when you dwelt in it.

Lev 26:36  'And as for those of you who are left, I will send faintness into their hearts in the lands of their enemies; the sound of a shaken leaf shall cause them to flee; they shall flee as though fleeing from a sword, and they shall fall when no one pursues.

Lev 26:37  They shall stumble over one another, as it were before a sword, when no one pursues; and you shall have no power to stand before your enemies.

Lev 26:38  You shall perish among the nations, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up.

Lev 26:39  And those of you who are left shall waste away in their iniquity in your enemies' lands; also in their fathers' iniquities, which are with them, they shall waste away.

Lev 26:40  'But if they confess their iniquity and the iniquity of their fathers, with their unfaithfulness in which they were unfaithful to Me, and that they also have walked contrary to Me,

Lev 26:41  and that I also have walked contrary to them and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if their uncircumcised hearts are humbled, and they accept their guilt

Lev 26:42  then I will remember My covenant with Jacob, and My covenant with Isaac and My covenant with Abraham I will remember; I will remember the land.

Lev 26:43  The land also shall be left empty by them, and will enjoy its sabbaths while it lies desolate without them; they will accept their guilt, because they despised My judgments and because their soul abhorred My statutes.

Lev 26:44  Yet for all that, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, nor shall I abhor them, to utterly destroy them and break My covenant with them; for I am the LORD their God.

Lev 26:45  But for their sake I will remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the nations, that I might be their God: I am the LORD.' "

Lev 26:46  These are the statutes and judgments and laws which the LORD made between Himself and the children of Israel on Mount Sinai by the hand of Moses.

A list of the 5th wave


God sends Assyria to invade Israel.
Profane thy Sanctuary.
Run when no one pursues.
Pine away in your sins.


These waves of events take us from the start of Jacobís trouble, to the time of captivity.

The above 5 waves are also described as Godís judgments on Israel and Judah.


Eze 14:21  For thus says the Lord GOD: "How much more it shall be when I send My four severe judgments on Jerusalem the sword and famine and wild beasts and pestilence to cut off man and beast from it?


Eze 5:12  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.


Godís four judgments cause 2/3rds of Israel, and Judah to perish. Rev 6 v 8 shows that the Jacobís trouble effects ľ of the worldís population. The present world population is approximately 5.65 billion people. ľ of this population is 1.42 billion people  these are the ones that the fourth seal affects, now this will include gentiles who are intermingled with Israel, there are currently about 440,000,000 people in English speaking countries of Israel, Australia, New Zealand, America, Great Britain, Canada, at present. The amount of people who will die in Jacobís trouble, before they go into captivity, is about 294,000,000 people.  This represents 2/3rds of English speaking Israel and Judah.


I will repeat that figure, about 294,000.000 people will die in Jacobís trouble.  About 146,000,000 will go into captivity, but only 1/10 will come out of captivity that means about 14,600,000 will come out of this terrible time alive. 


The following scriptures show that only 1/10th of Israel and Judah will come out of captivity alive.


Isa 6:11  Then I said, "Lord, how long?" And He answered: "Until the cities are laid waste and without inhabitant, The houses are without a man, The land is utterly desolate,

Isa 6:12  The LORD has removed men far away, And the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land.

Isa 6:13  But yet a tenth will be in it, And will return and be for consuming, As a terebinth tree or as an oak, Whose stump remains when it is cut down. So the holy seed shall be its stump."


Isa 10:20  And it shall come to pass in that day That the remnant of Israel, And such as have escaped of the house of Jacob, Will never again depend on him who defeated them, But will depend on the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.

Isa 10:21  The remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, To the Mighty God.

Isa 10:22  For though your people, O Israel, be as the sand of the sea, A remnant of them will return; The destruction decreed shall overflow with righteousness.


When in captivity Israel and Judah suffer extreme loss of life.  As shown above approximately 131,400,000 people die whilst in captivity.
This dreadful death toll happens for a reason. Israel and Judah have turned away from their God and practiced all kinds of abominations, forgotten Godís laws, ordinances, statutes and judgments. They are a rebellious and stiffnecked people.


While in captivity, Elijah goes to them and turns their hearts to God, and Godís heart to them, notice the following scriptures.


Mal 4:5  Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.

Mal 4:6  And he will turn The hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.


It is very interesting to note that when Israel go into captivity they are taken firstly to Egypt.  They are taken there by ships and then sold to their enemies.


Deu 28:68  "And the LORD will take you back to Egypt in ships, by the way of which I said to you, 'You shall never see it again.' And there you shall be offered for sale to your enemies as male and female slaves, but no one will buy you."


As the following scriptures shows, Israel will have a changed mind when they come out of captivity and notice how God feels towards them.


Jer 31:9  They shall come with weeping, And with supplications I will lead them. I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters, In a straight way in which they shall not stumble; For I am a Father to Israel, And Ephraim is My firstborn.


Even though the loss of life and devastation to Israel is horrendous, the following scripture shows that it had to happen to ensure Israel had a changed heart because of it.  They would not obey God or follow His laws or believe Him, prior to Jacobís Trouble, but now they will be comforted when they see the change in Israel, they will understand it had to happen for Israelís sake.


Eze 14:22  Yet behold, there shall be left in it a remnant who will be brought out, both sons and daughters; surely they will come out to you, and you will see their ways and their doings. Then you will be comforted concerning the disaster that I have brought upon Jerusalem, all that I have brought upon it.

Eze 14:23  And they will comfort you, when you see their ways and their doings; and you shall know that I have done nothing without cause that I have done in it," says the Lord GOD.


Once Israel have been released from captivity, they have their children restored to them.  The people who took them captive, will become the slaves of the Israelites. They fight a number of battles on their way back to Israel.  They are led back by the Father and King David, and the firstfruits, they are then given the plans for the temple to build that for God.


Notice the following scripture.


Eze 43:10  "Son of man, describe the temple to the house of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities; and let them measure the pattern.

Eze 43:11  And if they are ashamed of all that they have done, make known to them the design of the temple and its arrangement, its exits and its entrances, its entire design and all its ordinances, all its forms and all its laws. Write it down in their sight, so that they may keep its whole design and all its ordinances, and perform them.

Eze 43:12  This is the law of the temple: The whole area surrounding the mountaintop is most holy. Behold, this is the law of the temple.


We have articles at this site which follow on from this time.  We have Israel Returns from Captivity Then What? and The Temple, plus many other topics for the end time.
