This volume journeys through the seven years of the Birthpains from Jewish sources. With this overview many of the questions and controversies concerning the timing of the Gathering are resolved. Of particular interest is a segment on the 144,000 and where this is found in the Tanach. Also key in this Volume is the discussion of the rise of the False Messiah and how this is essential in determining whether the Gathering precedes, is at the beginning, middle, or end of the Birthpains. This information is continued in Volume Seven.
