I love opinionated non-PC people. This blog is to vent my opinions on life, the universe and everything. Which is 42 which in gematria is "My Heart" (LBY) according to Rabbi Abulafia. The Divine Heart is the centre of everything.

23 September Alignment, Jacob's Trouble and Divine Will:A Hebrew Catholic Reflection

The unique stellar alignment occurred yesterday which many Christians have linked to the Great Sign in Apocalypse 12. Many believe that this begins a period called Jacob's Trouble (Jeremiah 30:7) which is connected to the Heavenly sign of the Woman in Labour or Travail. This Woman is Our Lady as Mother of the Church and the Woman of Israel. Thus a period of trouble for the Church will begin. Jacob represents all the Israelites - the Jews (House of Judah) and the lost Tribes (Ephraim, Joseph or House of Israel which is the Church on a mystical level). Thus Jacob's Trouble is a time of great troubles or tribulations for both Jews and Christians.

Strangely enough an event did occur on the 23 September 2017 last Saturday and that was the release of the  document by 60 ultra-traditionalist Catholic theologians of an accusation of heresy against the Pope. Thus this new Donatist movement that accuses the very foundation rock of the Church may begin a period of 7 years tribulation for our holy mother the Church. This indeed may herald a major schism in the Church which eventually may bring to "birth" the Pope-son who will rule the nations with a rod of iron (measuring rod) in Apoc.12:5. This measuring rod is also mentioned in Apoc.11:1 and alludes to the number 36 and the living in the Divine Will. Thus this may be the Pope who lives in Divine Will who Luisa Piccarreta wrote about in her writings.

Others have suggested some kind of significant event occurring on Michaelmas (September 29) which this year is also the eve of Jewish Yom Kippor. Others also expect something significant occurring on October 13 2017 on the 100th anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima. I personally believe that we have entered into a 7 year period of greater tribulations for the Church and Israel in which Our Lady will play a central role. This will include political turmoil and natural disasters getting even worse than the previous 7 years. The good news is that these tribulations will usher in a period of worldwide peace for many years and a new springtime for the Church and the Jewish people. This will see the two sticks of Judah (the Jews) and the stick of Ephraim (the Great Monarch) in the hand of Joseph (the Church) reunited into one Body. "Thou, son of man, take one stick and write upon it: To Judah, and to the sons of Israel his companions; then take another stick and write upon it: To Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and to all the house of Israel his companions: and join them one to another that they might become one; and they shall be one in thy hand." (Ezekiel 37:16-17)

"Ask now, and see whether the man doth travail with child? for I have seen that every man has his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail; and all faces have turned pale. Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it." (Jeremiah 30:6-7)

"For I have heard a voice as of a woman in travail, the anguish as of her that brings forth her first child, the voice of the daughter of Zion, that bewails herself, that spreads her hands, saying, Woe is me now! for my soul is faint because of the murderers." (Jeremiah 4:31)

"We have heard the fame thereof; our hands wax feeble; anguish has taken hold of us, and pain as of a woman in travail." (Jeremiah 6:24)

"Thou didst inhabit Lebanon, thou didst make thy nest in the cedars. How shalt thou cry out when pangs come upon thee, the pain as of a woman in travail!" (Jeremiah 22:23)

"Behold, he shall rise up and fly as the eagle and spread his wings over Bozrah; and at that day the heart of the mighty men of Edom shall be as the heart of a woman in her pangs." (Jeremiah 49:22)

"Be in pain, and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail; for now thou shalt go forth out of the city, and thou shalt dwell in the field, and thou shalt go even to Babylon; there shalt thou be delivered; there the LORD shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies." (Micah 4:10)

"Now thou shalt be besieged by armies, O daughter of the army: he shall lay siege against us; they shall smite the judge of Israel with a rod upon the cheek. But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be Lord in Israel; and his goings forth are from the beginning, from the days of the ages. Therefore he will give them up until the time that she who travails has brought forth; then the remnant of his brethren shall return with the sons of Israel." (Micah 5:1-3)

"...The length of the rod is six cubits. Each cubit is six handbreadths. See, therefore, how all the lights are bound together in this light, which is called "All," since all are contained within it. There are six directions [the six ketzavot, alluding to the six sefirot from Chesed to Yesod, all of which are included in Yesod], and when they are all connected to one another, they make thirty-six, corresponding to the length of this rod [36 handbreadths]. (see the writings of Rabbi Moshe Hayyim Luzzato (Ramchal) in "The Future Temple" ).
