Beginning of the birth pangs of the #Messiah #Tribulation #Messianic Era

 

 

Jesus In the Gospels in Matthew 24:4- 8 ( and also in Mark 13:5- 8 ) begins outlining and giving an "overview" of the beginning of the first half of the tribulation period / Daniel's 70th week starting in verse 4 to verse 8 which is the beginning of sorrows",which in Judaism is called the Birth pangs of the messiah ( Some bible translations use "birth pangs" instead of "sorrows" ). Then Jesus in Matt. 24:9says..."Then they ( the nations ) will deliver you totribulation , and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations on account of My name."  

 

 Jesus in Matt. 24:9 then begins to describe the beginning of the "last half" of the tribulation periodwhen the man antichrist will "break his covenant" ( Dan. 9:27 ) and will commit the "abomination that causes deslation " ( Matt. 24:15 ) which will begin the great persecution of Israel known as "the time of Jacob's trouble."  Therefore Jesus in Matt. 24:9 to 30is describing the last half of the seven year tribulation period which will conclude with Christ's return to the earth in verses 29 and 30.

 

 

Matthew 24:8.....All these ( The things Jesus mentions from Matt 24:4 to 7 ) are the beginning of sorrows.

 

 

Mark 13:8........For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings ofsorrows ( the beginning of the birthpangs of the Messiah ).

 

 

The "beginning of sorrows" is called the "Birthpangs of the Messiah" in Judaism, and of which is mentioned in the Babylonian Talmud by the Jewish sages. These "sorrows / birthpangs" will begin with the "opening of the "first seal" judgment" ( Rev. 6:1). The last prophetic week of Daniel ( 70th week / seven years ) then begins once Christ has broken thefirst seal.  These seal seven seal judgments coincide with the judgments which Jesus begins to outline in Matt. 24:4- 8 which is describing the first half of the tribulation period.  Then He picksup with verse 9of Matt. 24 and describes the "last half" of the tribulation which climaxes and concludes with His return to the earth.

 

 

 Here is a quote from a very good Scholar Dr. Renald Showers from His book..."Maranatha Our Lord, come!"

 

Quote from Page 21.

 

Birth Pangs in Judaism.........."Ancient Judaism taught that a seven-year period of time will immediately precede the Messiah's coming to rule the world.  The babylonian Talmud states,..."Our Rabbis taught: in the seven-year cycle at the END of which the son of David will come....At the conclusion of the septennate the son of David will come."  

 

 Raphael Patai, writing on the "Messianic texts," said,..."The idea became entrenched that the coming of the Messiah will be preceded by greatly increased suffering....This will last "seven years."  And then, unexpectedly, the Messiah will come."

 

According to "The Babyalonian Talmud",....."The advent of the Messiah was pictured as being preceded by years of great destress." The Dead Sea Scrolls and other literature called the severe troubles of the seven years before the Messiah's coming "The birth pangs of the Messiah."

 

Millar Burrows pointed this out in his book on theScrolls:..."A prominent feature of Jewisheschatology, as represented especially by therabbinic literature, was the time of trouble preceding Messiah's coming.  It was called..."The birth pangs of the Messiah," sometimes more briefly translated as "The Messianic Woes."

 

 

 Why call these future troubles "the birth pangs of the Messiah"?  Because travail precedes birth, and thistravail precedes the birth of a new era", theMessianic Age.  Just as a woman must go through a period of agony before her child is born into the world, so the world will go through birth pangs before the Messianic Age is born into the world........Some rabbis have taught that the Messiah will NOT comeUNTIL the birth pangs become so severe that the Jews will "despair of the Redemption....when, as it were, Israel will have neither supporter nor helper."....( end quote ).

 

 I wanted to share this important commentary with all of you so that you might get a better understanding of the "Olivet Discourse" in Matthew 24 in which Jesus is outlining the wholetribulation period beginning with Matt. 24:4- 8 ( first half of the tribulation ) which is the beginning of these birth pangs, and from Matt. 24:9- 30 in which Jesus is describing the last half of the tribulation period which concludes in verses 29, 30.

 

Now look at this amazing gematria below which I just found!
