Sermon:
JUDGMENT # 4--THE JUDGMENT OF ISRAEL, THE TRIBULATION- 8-16-08 JER.30:1-7
Today we’ll continue our study of the 7 judgments we find in the Bible. Although this horrible time of the Tribulation is directed toward Israel, it will affect the entire world.
Let me give you the names again of these 7 judgments.
#1-{the judgment of sin,} this took place on the cross of Christ.
#2- {self-judgment of our daily sins}, after we’re saved. The other 5 judgments are after the rapture of the Church.
#3- {the judgment seat of Christ}, where all that are saved will be judged for our stewardship, our works after we were saved and thus rewarded accordingly, this is after the rapture of the Church}-
And #4-{-the judgment of Israel, Jacobs Trouble, Jer. 30:7, “name-Gen.32:28--35:10” and this has to do with the Tribulation period. The Tribulation is “Jacobs trouble”. But it will affect all the earth.
-#5-{the judgment of the nations}, this takes place after Christ returns and has defeated His enemies at Armageddon, at the end of the 7 year Tribulation, “Rev.19:” but just prier of Him setting up His Kingdom, the 1000 year reign of Christ.
-#6-the judgment of the fallen angels}-

And #7 is of coarse, {the White Throne judgment}, this is when all the lost souls are brought out of hell and judged according to their wickedness, and according to the degree of their wickedness be tormented in the lake of fire, there are not any saved people judged at this judgment, these are all lost.
Listen as I read today’s text found in Jeremiah 30: 1The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 2Thus speaketh the LORD God of Israel, saying, Write thee all the words that I have spoken unto thee in a book.
3For, lo, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the LORD: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.
4And these are the words that the LORD spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah.
5For thus saith the LORD; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace.
6Ask 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?
7Alas! 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.
Lets remember, “Jacob” and “Israel are the same man.
Gen.32:28 Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel—the name “Israel” means, (A prince of God) also in Gen. 35:10.
In case there might be some one listening that doesn’t understand, the man “Israel”, had 12 sons and these 12 sons make up the 12 tribes of the nation Israel. When we speak of Israel, we’re really talking about Jacobs 12 sons,
