Two Trains – Introduction

Two Trains


The Rise of Anti-Semitism

The End from the Beginning – Isaiah 46:10 “Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things that are not yet done …”

The 7 Year Tribulation – The Time of Jacob’s trouble – Day of the Lord “Alas! For that day is great, So that none is like it; And it is the time of Jacob’s trouble, But he shall be saved out of it.” Jeremiah 30:7

 Where is the Church? Rapture

  • Post-trib
  • Tribulation is over
  • Pre-trib – Day of Christ

Revelation 3:10 – The Faithful Church  “Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.”

Revelation 4:1 “After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, “Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.” The Church is gone from the earth in the New Jerusalem – God turns His attention to the salvation of the Jewish People Rise of Antichrist – Revelation 13 – Antichrist 666

  • Purpose – Eradicate the Jews from the earth
  • Time frame – 7 years
  • Outcome – Failure – “Jacob will be saved out of it”

Anti-Semitism In The Church Age – The Mystery of iniquity

 “For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way” 2 Thessalonians 2:7.

  • Replacement Theology: 2-5th century AD – God changed His mind and transferred the blessings of the Abrahamic Covenant to the church
  • Blood Libel: 12th-14th – Jews accused of using blood of Arab children to make Matzoh
  • Spanish Inquisition: 15th century – Convert to Catholicism or die
  • Reformation: 16th-17th century – Protestant/Catholic churches continue Replacement Theology
  • Covenant (Reformed) Theology: 16th century to today –  Protestant shift  ‘the church is Israel’
  • Pogroms: 18-19th century Russia – government sanctioned murder of Jews
  • Nazism: 20th century “Final Solution” – 6 million Jews are murdered
  • EU Boycott Divest Sanction: 21st century against products made in Israeli settlements
  • US Democrat Party: 21st century House of Representatives condones anti-Semitic tropes against Israel

 Global resurgence in anti-Semitism as we near the Tribulation – God is calling His chosen home, Ezekiel 39:28: “… then they shall know that I am the Lord their God, who sent them into captivity among the nations, but also brought them back to their land, and left none of them captive any longer.”
