The following is a video of a speech that was given by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, author of “The Harbinger,” at the Presidential Inaugural Prayer Breakfast in Washington DC on January 21, 2013.  This is a VERY IMPORTANT MESSAGE for all Americans and, in my opinion, a dire warning.  Please consider the words being said.

 1The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.

 2Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.

 3A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about.

 4His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.

 5The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

 6The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.

 7Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all ye gods.

 8Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of thy judgments, O LORD.

 9For thou, LORD, art high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods.

 10Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

 11Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.

 12Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

                                                                                  ~ Psalm 97

     There can be no peace on earth until the Messiah returns.  Man is incapable of attaining peace in and of himself.

     You can issue as many resolutions and sanctions as you want. There will be no peace until the Messiah returns. ~ You can sing “We are the World” and “Kumbaya” all  you want.  There will be no peace until the Messiah returns. ~ You can empty your mind, chant, and meditate on the light of candles all you want.  Still… there will be no peace until the Messiah returns. ~ Why do you think He’s called “The Prince of Peace?”  (See Isaiah 9:6)

     The following is just one of the passages which describe what the earth will be like when the Messiah sets up His Kingdom.  Read it and be encouraged.

~~~~~

    And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:

    And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;

    And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:

    But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth: with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.

    And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.

    The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

    And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.

    And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den.

    They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.

    And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

    And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

    And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

    The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim.

    But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them.

    And the LORD shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dryshod.

    And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.

    And in that day thou shalt say, O LORD, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me.

    Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.

    Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.

    And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted.

    Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth.

    Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.

                                                                           ~ Isaiah 11 & 12

This is the sixth installment in the series entitled “Are We Living in the End Times?” which centers around discovering if we could possibly be living in the times spoken of by Jesus Christ during His discourse on the Mount of Olives.

Previously, we discussed a warning followed by various signs that were mentioned in Matthew 24:4-7.  In the second installment to this series, “Take Heed that No One Deceives You,” we considered the origins of deception and the importance of discerning truth from error.  We followed this up in the next article by proving why there can only be one person who fulfills the qualifications for being the Messiah, the Christ, the Savior of mankind, and who this person is.  This article is entitled “For Many will Come in My Name.”  The next article, “Wars and Rumors of Wars,” discussed the remarkable increase in worldwide conflicts over the past 100 years or so.  And in the last article, “For Nation will Rise against Nation,” we addressed the increase in ethnic and civil unrest around the globe.

Then, in the very next verse, Jesus made a very thought-provoking statement which pertains to the previous list of things just mentioned.  He said, “All these are the beginning of sorrows.” (Matthew 24:8) This is the topic of discussion in this article.

As mentioned above, there are numerous catastrophic events that were discussed and which we elaborated on in the previous articles.  One might ask, “If these events are the beginning of sorrows, how much worse could the actual full-fledged sorrows be?”  Unfortunately, the Bible says that they will be considerably worse.  In fact, no other time in the history of the earth will be as bad as this future time spoken of by Jesus – so bad that Jesus Himself said, “Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”  (Luke 21:36)

Now, let’s take a look at the word “sorrows.”  Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines this word as “a cause of grief or sadness.”   In some Bible translations, though, the phrase “birth pains” is used in the Matthew 24:8 passage instead of “sorrows.”  I believe this phrase helps us to better understand the broader meaning that Jesus wanted to convey in this passage.

For instance, every woman who has experienced birth pains – or in today’s terminology, labor pains – during childbirth can relate to the gradual succession of events during labor which culminate with the birth of a child.  At first it starts off as a dull, intermittent hint of pain caused by contractions of the womb housing the baby.  These contractions are spaced far apart in the beginning, but as the labor progresses, the pains occur with greater frequency and intensity until the birth of a child results.

Consequently, what is being described in verses 4 through 7 are the initial, intermittent events that have to happen in order for the full birth of the desired end of the age, which is the coming reign of the Messiah.  However, between this time period referred to as “the beginning of sorrows” and the coming of the Messiah, will be a time of great sorrow or tribulation which the world has never experienced before nor will ever experience again.  (Matthew 24:21)

So, what will this time of tribulation be like?  The next set of verses gives us the answer to this question beginning in Matthew 24:9.  This passage of scripture solemnly states, “Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.” We will carefully examine this statement in the next installment of this series.
