The Coming Holocaust


This powerful e-book will inform you, shock you, amaze you and give you wonderful encouragement in these days.

These events are about to unfold on the world stage, the Middle East and in Israel. This is like a giant play, enough to put a thousand Shakespeare's to shame...except this is no play! In fact it's already starting to unfold.

This book is full of incredible revelation.

The book reveals many amazing repeating patterns and shows just why the coming holocaust is inevitable.

You will be involved, if only by opinion!

G. Zunckel:

Dear Joel, A really huge thank you for your book! I have read through it – its real and gripping!! I have found myself re-reading chapter after chapter. I follow your belief and Holy Spirit inspired words. Wow what a wake-up call to the world and the church in general.

B. Currie:

Shalom Joel. Your book blew me away.   I loved the way you dovetailed everything. There is no reason for anyone to be offended by the book because it’s straight truth. As you kept on saying the Jews did nothing to deserve this favour of God and yet people despise them even though it’s not their choice. I am saying that they are God's people and we had better love them! I enjoyed the history and the meaning of words. Highly recommended was the way you supported your statements with Scripture.   A sterling work!

J. Pasma:

I have read your book and have learned a few things that I did not know before. This book should be read by every truly born-again saint of God, if for no other reason than to strengthen belief in Israel's right to their God-given land and God-given promises. Please keep on writing the Prophetic Scroll. After I read the "the interviews” section, I was shocked by comments from people who claimed to be believers, even more so by those who said they were pastors.


Joanne Smith (Ringwood, NJ, USA)   9/11/12

The Coming Holocaust is much like reading the book of Isaiah; it is a mind-boggling compilation of every book of the Bible purposefully pointing toward the Messianic age. That said, you can read this book and read your newspaper headlines almost side by side with the incomparable benefits of Mr. Joseph’s scholarly expository skill and his exhaustive investigation of the historical roots of just about any major player on the world stage.

Ever mindful of the title of this book, Mr. Joseph zooms in and out of the patterns and parallels throughout history that foreshadow the final battle for human souls that will result in a holocaust of unprecedented proportion and climax in a real-time Valley of Decision. He emphasizes that every single person alive is brought to reveal his/her decision if by nothing more than one’s opinion. As he explains,

“In this day, you must know and understand these things, otherwise you’re

in infinitely more danger than you can imagine. If you don’t understand what

is about to unfold, you’re in danger of being swept away in a tidal wave of

Satanic influence, opinion and intent. These very issues will lead a great

many people into hell.”

The most important changes I made after reading The Coming Holocaust are two unwavering decisions which I now can explain clearly. My first is to recognize that God’s roadmap to peace is not up to man nor can it be. It has always been up to God. It is the cross of Christ. And it is none other than this same Yeshua who will fully answer the cries of His Jewish people and similarly enable their recognition of Him. The true Messiah says “My peace I give to you; not as the world gives”. My other decision honors the eternal covenant with Israel as divine and not open to human revision. Again, here is the clearest explanation ever given to me:

“The very essence of all sin, is the doubting or denial of God’s word,

will and ways. God has made an eternal covenant with Israel. So what

does the modern world do? It says, ‘Has God said?’

This will be the very issue of separation and division between the

eternal purposes of the living God and the short-term doomed purposes of

Satan himself. You will go with one or the other, believe it or like it or not!”

(Joel Joseph, p5)

The best description I can give this body of work is that of a compass needle that will reliably point true North no matter who you are, where you stand, what clouds your visibility and above all how lost you‘ve become.


Nature Environment Wilderness and animals in prophecy

It covers much that is truly wonderful, some material that is frightening and much that is little or completely unknown in modern times.

This book will inform you, amaze you, shock you and give you great comfort.

In this book I’ve covered many exciting issues from stewardship of nature, to environment and health, to terrible man-made tragedies.

I’ve covered the interesting subject: “Do pets go to heaven?” and some indictments on hunters and Christian hunters in particular

I’ve covered the full circle of the perfect pre-Adamic creation, through the fall of man and curse on nature, to the liberation of nature and its complete return to perfection.

I’ve looked into “Glimpses of the future” and the terrible regret of the unsaved.

The book ends off with a collection of my own photographs and art works.

Be very sure of one thing; this book will move you!

This website is distinctly Messianic, comprising the Abrahamic expression of faith, which is to the Jew and the Gentile with a Hebraic character. We affirm the fullness of absolute truth contained in the Bible, embracing the cross and identifying with the convocations of the Lord as seen in the Feasts, the Sabbath and Passover. We reject the legalism of many in the Messianic movement. We reject the Babylonian Pagan traditions of the church. We consider all people Jews and Gentiles and those in all churches who are truly born of the Spirit of the living God to be one family. We reject institutional organised denominationalism (division). We foresee a great falling away of much of the church in these days, while at the same time a great restoration of part of the church. We affirm and identify with God's plan and call to the Jewish people in these days and will support and stand with them as future brothers and sisters. We stand happily with pre / mid/ and post tribbers. Our slant is cautiously pre-trib, but hey, post're still family! Today much error has been added to Christendom and much truth has been removed. The Prophetic Scroll's aim is to deal with these issues and assist you on your road to glory.

I was saved in 1976 and became extremely interested in Bible prophecy, being an ex war-correspondent and photographer. My calling and aim is to share the dramatic and all-important issues of prophecy relating to our day. This is a calling to unfold and share the wisdom of God as contained in His word. There is also much teaching in these pages for your heart. It’s not all prophecy! Please study these things further yourself and understand that the format is non-exhaustive. Please search the scriptures to “see if these be true.” This is a "watchman" and Bible prophecy teaching website.

The US sends “warning” messages to Syria by way of missiles and to Afghanistan and ISIS by way of the MOAB bomb and to North Korea and Russia by way of words of warning. One wonders what is next! Could it be Iran? It’s all warming up!

a Sabbath Report2Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah and to identify the rift, and the needed restoration. There is much in the church that needs to change before it can be fully reconciled with the Jew. Likewise, changes in Jewish thinking are also needed. 

21st April 2017

Shabbat Shalom to all:

War, stress and peace:

We are in such a volatile world situation. All it will take is for one madman with itchy fingers to hit the big red mushroom button and boom – we have a mushroom cloud. Then the response will come and we will have a big war. It’s not unrealistic or far off!

This will be a big war, but will only be a precursor to world war like never seen before, in the soon-coming tribulation period.

There most certainly is a foreboding, ominous wind blowing!

We have a few “madman” candidates in North Korea, Syria, Iran and Russia, with China in the same boat although trying to be a friend of the West right now. It won’t last. All are on the stage.

Europe is a simmering time-bomb with its Muslim migrants waiting for the “jihad” button to be pressed! Smaller incidents like the Paris police shooting remind us of the heart of terror.

The US is in a similar boat with their migrants, but they seem to be realising, and rightly so, that Trump is no Obama and they will get nailed quickly if they even think of jihad in America.

The eurozone is a giant failure and some members want out, Spain is the latest. This all means that the fragile bonds holding it together may break at any moment, throwing Europe, and the euro into a catastrophe. Only a big reform will be the option. Prophecy awaits this fulfilment!

Have you noticed that with all these world tensions on the go now, Israel is more or less out of the picture? At this time, the Second Exodus is gaining momentum in a big way. It’s good that Israel remains off the main stage now, but we all know she will be dragged onto centre-stage soon.

It is news events like these mentioned that increase the stress levels of many people, even if they are far removed from the actual hot spots. The point is that in many cases, it’s the news itself that is the cause of the stress and not so much the events.

What a wonderful privilege we have as believers in our Lord to be able to live free from stress, at least with much less of it than those with no hope in this world or the world to come!

The biggest stress-killer is the rapture.

We must understand that the rapture of the church is not an isolated event. It is a dispensation change. It ends the church age and starts the next, which is the seven-year tribulation period, which itself is the close of the Old Covenant.

The rapture is directly linked to the start of the tribulation. There is no gap between the end of one dispensation and the start of the next. There is no scripture supporting it, only some stretched interpretation to make way for the largely erroneous “imminence” doctrine.

There has been an age old argument and discussion on the possibility of knowing when the rapture is to happen. There’s nothing wrong with that desire. Everyone wants to know.

But there are no independent signs of when it is going to happen. But what about the tribulation period, are there signs we can look for?

As I have said many times recently, there will be signs of the coming tribulation. If so, obviously the timing of a pre-tribulation rapture is knowable!

Yes, yes, I know all about the Revelation 12 sign. I haven’t rejected it completely nor accepted it. I have it on the shelf. It would really be cool if everyone was wrong and we went in the rapture well before the sign!

Okay, so what are those signs of the coming tribulation?

2 Thessalonians 2:3 “Don’t be deceived, for this day (the whole tribulation) will not come, unless the falling away (departure or rapture of the church) happens and the man of sin is revealed.” (I’ve applied the correct translation of the words in this verse. If you’re not familiar with them – look them up.)

Here we see the greatest sign of the coming tribulation and preceding rapture of the church. It is the arrival, releasing and identifying of the antichrist by the signing of a peace covenant.

As said many times, this will not suddenly happen overnight! Plans are made ahead of time for these things. They will be announced in the press, well beforehand.

May 3rd sees a meeting between Palestinian leader Abbas and President Trump in the White House, to discuss a new peace initiative between them and Israel. Will this be the final deal? No it won’t, but my point is that we see the meeting coming now.

We will see huge prophesied wars taking place before the tribulation begins. These could be part of the motivation for the Daniel 9:27 peace treaty. These wars will be the pre-cursor to a much bigger world war and conflict in the tribulation.

So, will we see the tribulation coming? The answer is yes. So, will we know when the rapture is coming? Again the answer is yes.

I’ve gone a rather long route to get to the point of this report:

Stress is all around us, and it’s going to increase exponentially. But so is beautiful, glorious peace, in these days of turmoil.

Has the world and the fear of coming troubles clouded your vision and taken away your joy?

Psalm 51:12 “Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and uphold me with Your generous Spirit.”

Peace will flow like refreshing waters for those who fear and know their God.


Psalm 42:5-8 “Why are you cast down, O my soul? Why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God...O my God, my soul is cast down within me; therefore I will remember You...Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; all Your waves have gone over me. The Lord will command His loving-kindness in the daytime and in the night; His song shall be with me – a prayer to the God of my life.”

Proverbs 10:25 “When the whirlwind passes by, the wicked is no more, but the righteous has an everlasting foundation.”

Proverbs 15:24 “The way of life winds upward↑↑↑ for the wise that he may turn away from hell below.”

Finally, concerning the seeking Jews in these dangerous days:

Romans 11:28 “Concerning the gospel they (Jews) are enemies for your sake, but concerning the election, they are beloved for the sake of the fathers.”

My Jewish friends, all these dramatic events before us will involve you. You can choose to seek and find your Jewish Messiah right now and escape the tribulation, or you can choose to find your Messiah in the tribulation period. The former is far better than the latter!

Shalom Joel.

Edition 210. June 4th 2014

Post-tribulation rapture problems:

Post-tribulation rapture problems:



See also rapture editions: 199 190 175 127

For easy understanding I’ll refer to the two rapture views as “post- trib” and “pre-trib”.

The pre or post tribulation rapture debate is an enduring issue. Both sides have legitimate Biblical “proofs.” Both sides have certain valid positions, but both can’t be right.

In this edition I want to look primarily at the post-tribulation rapture position, their key verses and their major thesis. You will see why their position is so persuasive and seems to be right. You will also see why they are wrong and only the pre-tribulation rapture fits together perfectly like a giant jig-saw puzzle.

This is an investigative critical look, but let me say right up front that I respect the post-tribulation rapture crowd and see us all as brothers and sisters in the Lord.

I’ve really looked into these issues with an open mind, laying aside all preconceived beliefs, although I have studied the subject since the 1980s. I’ve really tried to see the issues from the post- trib viewpoint.

Neither the pre-tribbers nor post -tribbers have a clear 100% guaranteed position.

If we get into the tribulation and there has been no rapture – what will that do to your faith? I know what it will do for me. It will change nothing except that I was wrong and now need to change that position. My faith will remain strong, as it has been. Faith should be built on our Lord alone and not on the pre or post trib position.

Impossible scenarios:

Many rapture verses could go either way, pre or post, but there are some pieces of the puzzle that will never fit into the post- tribulation rapture position, whichever way you cut it!

1 Thessalonians 1:10 “He delivers us from the wrath to come”. If we are to have a post- trib rapture, what “wrath to come” is this? A post-trib rapture is followed immediately by the Millennium and not wrath!

Revelation 3:10 “Because you have kept My word to persevere, I also will keep you from (Lit = clean out away from) the hour (Lit =- wider time period) of trial which shall come upon the whole world to test those who dwell on the earth.” If we have a post-trib rapture, what trial is this? A post-trib rapture would mean that believers are kept clean out away from the trial which is the Millennium!

2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 “Now concerning the coming of the Lord and our gathering together to him, we ask you not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the Day of the Lord had come. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition.”

 Due to persecution, the believers at Thessalonica thought they were in the tribulation and had missed the rapture. If we have a post- trib rapture, why would that be an issue, why would you be troubled by a letter saying that you are going through the tribulation at the end of the tribulation?

Luke 21:28 “Now when these things (tribulation) begin to happen look up and lift your heads, for your redemption draws nigh”. If we have a post- trib rapture this verse makes no sense.

If we have a post- trib rapture, sinners are cast into hell and all believers raptured at the Second Advent, therefore we will have an empty earth. Who then are the believers on earth in natural bodies during the Millennium and released to Satan’s temptation at end of the Millennium.

1 Corinthians 15:22-24 “As in Adam all die, even so in Messiah all shall be made alive. But each one in his own order: Christ the first fruits, afterwards those who are Messiah’s at His coming. Then the end shall come...”

The above verse is amazing indeed. It shows a rapture order. First of all the first fruits, who are the Church, then afterwards (note the afterwards) comes another group of believers. These are those who will be on earth during the tribulation and are His at His coming. This very clearly speaks of two groups of believers. If we extrapolate this to a post- trib rapture, nothing makes sense or fits together! There would be no “order” of events in a post- trib scenario.

The big post- tribulation rapture arguments:

Post -tribbers use the stories of Noah and Lot to ‘prove’ that believers will go through the tribulation, but will be protected as Noah and his family and Lot were protected. They rightly claim that the righteous were not removed from the judgements of God, just protected through it.

Where- o- where do you find believers being protected in the tribulation period? They will be exposed to the wrath of God in all the natural upheavals, the wrath of Satan and the wrath of man.  Tribulation saints (those saved in the tribulation) will become the very subject of massive persecution, including beheading. Many will be tortured and savagely killed just like they were by the Catholic popes in the inquisitions.

Revelation 13:7 “It was granted to him (antichrist) to make war with the saints and overcome them.” Where does protection fit into this?

overcome saints

Only a selected few will be preserved for a specific purpose during the tribulation. These are the 144,000 and the two witnesses.

One has to ask the question, if so many believers will be viciously killed during the tribulation period, where is the Holy Spirit who is the protector and comforter? I think you know the answer to that! He, as the restrainer of evil, is removed at the beginning of the tribulation. (His removal or operation is partial, in that He indwells the Church who is removed by rapture.) There will still be a limited operation of the Holy Spirit on earth during the tribulation.

The verse below is the argument used by the post-tribbers to claim protection through the tribulation. This verse applies generally and not to the tribulation at all. It is not in that context.

John 17:15-17 “I do not pray that you should take them out of the world, but that you shall keep them from the evil one.”...Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.”

The known and unknown day:

The Second Advent will be a surprise to no one. The exact days of the tribulation period are numbered from the start to the finish. The Bible declares that “Everyone will see His coming” (Second Coming) (Revelation 1:7)

The Bible says that He will return in just the same way as He left. This was a slow ascension into the clouds with all eyes watching. (Acts 1:10-11)

The manner of the Second Advent is described in these two verses above. If we have a post-trib rapture, at the Second Coming, we have a contradiction to deal with. The rapture takes place on a day and hour which is unknown, and it takes place in an atomic moment (Greek=atomo.) No one will see it.

The Second Advent as mentioned in the above verses takes place gradually with everyone seeing it.

There is no rapture to meet the Lord in the air at the Second Advent, as claimed by the post-tribbers. At the Second Advent “His feet touch the Mount of Olives” (Zechariah 14:4). This does not occur at the rapture, where our Lord does not return to the earth.

The verses below speak of a post- trib event – no doubt at all. But note that all the tribes (including the unsaved) see this event. At the pre-trib rapture no one but believers will see it. The people being saved here are not raptured so to speak, but “gathered together”. These are tribulation saints being gathered for their future Millennium ministry on the earth. We can’t say that they are the same group as the Church at a pre-trib rapture. That doesn’t fit.

Matthew 24:29-31 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. The sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory and He will send His angels with the great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”

The two big post-trib arguments:

1) The Last trumpet: (Greek=Salpigx)

Those who equate the rapture trumpet of 1 Corinthians 15:52 with the tribulation Seventh trumpet of Revelation 11:15-18 fail to take into account the fact that Paul could not have been referring to the Seventh trumpet because the book of Revelation had not yet been written. John wrote the Revelation 40 years after Paul wrote to the Corinthians.

Paul must have been referring to the silver trumpets.

Numbers 10:1 “Make two trumpets of hammered silver to summon the community. When both are sounded with long blasts, the entire community is to gather...”


We have a “last trumpet” for the Church age and a “last trumpet” for the close of the tribulation, which is the end of the Old Covenant. 1 Corinthians 15:52 sees the last trump of the Church era. We also hear a rapture trumpet for John the apostle in Revelation 4:1, and trumpet blasts of judgement upon the earth in Revelation 11:15-18 as well as in Revelation 7. We hear a trumpet of war in Ezekiel 33:1-6.

We also have the very important trumpet blasts of Rosh Hashanah.

It’s important to note that biblical trumpets have numerous uses and application. They are not all the same. You can’t take one and use it for all. I encourage you to study the different trumpets; their meanings and uses are very interesting. (You can do this through any concordance search.)

trumpets mix2

2) The Last day:

Post-tribbers claim that that the rapture will occur on the “last day”. They are right, but which last day?

The argument is the same as that for the trumpets above. There is a “last day” for the Church age and a “last day” for the tribulation and closing of the Old Covenant.

In the verse below we see a “last day” for the unbeliever as well. They are not all the same day!

John 12:48 “He who rejects Me and does not receive My words, has that which judges him – the word that I have spoken will judge him on the last day.”

Is the pre-trib position a new doctrine?

Those who believe that the rapture is a modern doctrine invented by Darby in 1830 are not worthy of addressing as they are in rank ignorance of the historic facts. I won’t address it because it is so stupidly short- sighted. If you want to look into it, have a look at the following video clip, Here

The rapture sequence of events:

2 Thessalonians 2:1-7 “Now brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord and our gathering together to Him (rapture)  we ask you not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us as though the Day of the Lord had already come. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away (apostasy) comes first and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition...and now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way.”

So, from these verses we see this sequence concerning our gathering to Him, or the rapture.

There must be a falling away or apostasy first. There are two interpretations of this. It can refer to an apostasy within the church or it can refer to the rapture itself. It makes no difference really because the context of the whole portion of scripture is “our gathering together to him”, or the rapture.

Then the man of sin or antichrist is revealed.

Then the restrainer of evil is removed.

In context, these things all occur together or within a very short time period like a day or so.

Now, take this lot and extrapolate it into a post -trib rapture scenario. Can you see that nothing fits? Why would the antichrist be revealed at the end of the tribulation? Why would the restrainer of evil be removed at the end of the tribulation?

The nature of the tribulation:

Many people mistakenly believe that the tribulation will only be really bad in the second half. Some in fact claim it will only be really bad right at the end of the second half.

I have shared on this in numerous editions on this so I’ll just touch on it again.

The four riders of the Apocalypse ride throughout the seven year period. Death and destruction on a massive scale begins immediately. The second half will be a lot worse, but it will be worse than extremely bad beforehand!

The antichrist tries to make peace at the beginning. This is a political peace in Israel only and has nothing to do with wars in other places and the natural upheavals and dramas on other fronts.

Very few people have any idea of the severity of the tribulation period. They compare it in their minds to events we have seen in the last 2000 years. It will be a” time as never has been nor ever will be”!

Scrolls horses

The tribulation will have a dramatic effect on untold millions of people, who will be shocked into repentance and many into outright rebellion against God. Our Lord does not deal with His family like this - it is way out of character. It may not be so if you think the tribulation is going to be some Mickey Mouse event.

Our Lord deals with us in mercy and grace through the power of His Holy Spirit.

Nahum 1:2-3 “He reserves His wrath for His enemies. The true Church is not His enemy! Hallelujah!

The character of the post-tribbers:

The post- trib position is the primary doctrine of the Catholic church and all the denominational churches with the exception of just a few. (The Catholic church invented the post-trib doctrine of purgatory.)These churches all have the same characteristics of being supporters and perpetuators of division in the church (denomination means division.) They are all consistent in their denial of the baptism of the Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit, especially the revelatory gifts.

Post tribulationism is found consistently amongst Messianic believers who are law-keepers and those trying to bring others under the law. These are our modern Judaisers. Their fruits are what gives them away! If you are under the law you are not under grace. These people operate in a legalistic world in the energy of the flesh.

Law-keepers reject Bible dispensations, although they are found in a number of places in the New Covenant epistles (which they downplay). They reject the dispensation of grace, believing that law-keeping has been and still is the continuous norm. (We believe in the law of the Spirit in our hearts.)

The primary character found amongst law-keepers is judgmentalism, pride and angry arrogance. These are the very things that blind you.

John 5:16 “The Jews (Pharisees) persecuted Jesus for this reason, and sought to kill Him, because He had done these things on the Sabbath.”

Here we see that the so-called law-keepers tried to kill our Lord because He didn’t keep His law, their way.

Paul also calls those who have come under the law, “bewitched.”  So we see anger and bewitched hostility as characteristics of law-keepers.

Many post- tribbers (not all by any means) cast a dark cloud over their own doctrine with these rotten fruits of character. One then has to wonder where their doctrine comes from.

Many post-tribbers condemn to hell those that don’t support their view. I have many emails from these types slandering, condemning and judging me to hell because I’m of the pre-trib persuasion. A tree is known by its fruit, my friends!

Please always remember this one giant very important thing: Your doctrine will always be a reflection of you and your inner heart! I could write a book on that one statement!


There is a well known idiom out there. “Misery loves company.”  Anything or any behaviour or belief that separates you from the world and the masses, is normally hated. The post-trib crowd fit this idiom perfectly!


A common criticism thrown at the pre-tribbers is that our position is all escapism. I’ve never understood such short-sighted criticism.

 Luke 21:36 “Watch therefore and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things (tribulation events) that will come to pass and stand before the Son of Man.” If we have a post- tribulation rapture, what “things” would we be escaping? That would mean that we would need to escape all the terrors of the Millennium!

The word “escape” in the verse above is very interesting. It’s not the normal word for escape. It is Strongs G1628 “ekpheugo”. It means, “To escape, flee or escape by flight

Thank our Lord we will escape all these things that will come to pass!

Now have a look at the ones who will not escape the events of the tribulation!

1Thessalonians 5:1-6 “Concerning the times and seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord comes as a thief in the night. For when they say peace and safety, then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labour pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We are not of the night or darkness, therefore let us watch.”

The tribulation will be so horrendous, even many who are saved in it will give up.

So, do you want to escape the tribulation or not?

What you must do:

The pre or post -trib differences are not soul damning. But post- tribber heads will roll – literally! I’d rather keep my head thank you!

I think it is good to strengthen you faith and love for our Messiah either way!

Keep informed by the “informer” (the Holy Spirit) and selected spiritual ministries who will warn you, lead, and really help you in these days.


As you see, rather than argue just for a pre-trib rapture, I’ve looked into the post-trib position objectively and the result is that some verses fit and many don’t. A general rule of interpretation is that all scripture must harmonise. You can’t have one position drawn from some scriptures and contradicted by others.

So, putting it all together, the scale tips in favour of the pre-tribulation rapture.

But be warned, Joel Joseph and all other pre-tribbers; the post tribbers have some convincing arguments.

I took this picture in the middle of a 15,000sq km desert in Botswana. This is a group of seven massive Baobab Trees that were known as the “sleeping sisters” but since the 1800s and since Thomas Baines painted the trees, the trees have become known as Baines Baobabs. They are in a unique, sublimely beautiful part of 4x4 country. They are about 3000 years old and speak of endurance and being deeply rooted in God in these days.
