Begin study:


There have been several deportations with regard to Israel. Assyria, and Babylon both initiated massive deportations, moving people out of Israel and Judah, as well as the Romans many hundreds of years later.

But this is not the end of Gods disciplinary policy against a spiritually negative nation.

We know that the nation of Israel is symbolic of the nation of believers which God calls His nation. And when Gods own nation falls away from truth, then these judgments fall on the believing population in order to get them back on track with doctrine.

Nevertheless, this judgment also points to the last and final great judgment against Israel, which will occur in the Tribulation.

We know from our studies of Revelation, that at the mid-point of the Tribulation, there will be a great abomination occurring when the newly rebuilt temple is dedicated. At that time, the Bible warns all to leave immediately, if they have not yet already left Jerusalem and the nation. One would think that if people are aware of this prophecy they would have left, but then there will be many who will disregard the prophecy and warning, but then the warning is not really for them, but for our understanding of this event.

For it will be followed by an unleashing of the single most violent period in all of Israel’s history.

And we have those days being revealed in these verses.

The violence will be phenomenal, the arrests will be massive, the movements or deportation of people out of the area will be thorough. None will remain, except a very, very small number.

But remember that there is a three and a half year window between the mid-point of the Tribulation and the Second Advent of Christ. That is a very long time for the suffering and atrocities that will be occurring. And this verse ends with the description that the suffering will be great.

Great desolation or forsaking, means desertion, emptying out, vanishing. And in that regard, people will be vanishing because they will be dead, dying, carted off for death sentences and worse.



End of study





Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
