I was asking the Lord in much prayer to give me a word in my King James Version Prophecy Study Bible and He opened me to a Study page speaking of Jeremiah 30:7 what we know to be as the 7 year tribulation FOLLOWING the rapture event.
Here is commentary notes on Jeremiah 30:7 by Ray Stedman the Lord opened me to just a minute ago:
"A time of trouble such as never has been in the history of the world and never will be again."
Those words are very dramatic. In their possibilities and we tried to take a look at what the Scripture calls them. Jeremiah for instance calls them, "The time of Jacob's trouble," which highlights the fact that this will be an especially serious time for the Jewish people, for Israel as a nation. We are all aware, of course, of the terrible injustice and awful slaughter that the Jews went through in the Holocaust after WWII started, the like of which had probably never been seen on earth before. Yet judging from the record of Scripture, the time that lies ahead for Israel is even worse than that. A time anti-Semitism of our day is indicative of the approach of this time when Jews will be hated of all nations, not for any reason in themselves but because they are the chosen people of God. The Jewish people are the apple of God's eye.
In the book of Revelation this time of trouble is called "The harvest of the earth." It is the time when God is going to at last correct the injustices, the wickedness of men. I am often amazed at the patience of God when you think of how many times everyday His name is blasphemed, His ideas are laughed at, His own person and power scorned and mocked and set aside, His values ignored and His warnings totally ignored as well. It is amazing, when you think God has always promised that there is coming a day of recompense; a day when God will at last avenge Himself for all the injustices that man has perpetrated upon Him. This is the nature of the great time of trouble that is soon coming.

My commentary on this word for all faithful watchers who use this blog. The Lord also opened me to 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 and reminded me that The day of the Lord is nigh at hand and the Man of Sin will soon officially reveal himself. The Lord has reminded me that 2 Thessalonians 2:2 saying the day of Christ is in fact at hand, just like the note from the Tennessee wild fire said last year in November 2016. (See below)
