|This ministry has a distinct kingdom, Messianic vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for the Jewish people and the church. My position is pre-trib! Personally: I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share these great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God.|

Shabbat (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.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
God, the nations and man:
There are many parallels and principles in the Bible, both Old Covenant and New, that strongly relate to each other and work in the same way. In this report I want to share some parallels between God’s dealing with a nation and with an individual.
A nation under God is built on three godly pillars: ●State (government) ●church and ●family. All three are under massive attack, for the satanic purpose of undermining and bringing a nation down.
Within these three areas, the attacks expand into other related areas which also undermine and eventually bring down a nation. These include: ●Open borders, ●unchecked state corruption, with no accountability, ●exploding government and personal debt, ●cutting down military expenditure. ●the rejection and loss of biblically-based morality and values. ●rampant aggressive sin on all fronts.
And it’s all related in many ways to the casting down of the word of God. (Hosea 4:1-2)
It is not just a nation that is subject to these things. It all relates in the same way to you as an individual. Have a look at the items under the bullet points above again and now apply them spiritually, to the individual. Do you see how well all the principles fit?
The day you push the word of God aside is the day you enter spiritual darkness and step onto Satan’s slippery slope. The further down the slope you go, the more slippery it becomes and the harder it is to get back.
Psalm 35:6 “Let their way be dark and slippery, and the angel of the Lord pursue them.”
You may think you are fine due to your education, the opinions of the media, your peers and friends, which you join in thinking and action. No matter how eloquent, they are they are no substitute for revelation knowledge of the Spirit of God in His word.
Much of your success as a Christian begins with your thinking. It is so important to think right and in line with God’s word.
Right doctrine in the right Spirit, with right thinking and acting produces right living, as we cultivate truth, and actively root out error.
New world thinking has stormed into the church – unannounced! These so-called Christians of mixed spiritual breeding walk in the light and darkness! But the Bible says that light and darkness can have no fellowship with each other. (2 Corinthians 6:14)
It is Satan who makes you stupid. He easily controls idiots. So he makes people idiots en masse, by having them cast down the truth in unison. The first work of Satan is to disguise himself to the masses. Then he advances like a deadly Trojan horse, and enslaves people with his group thinking and group speak.
Tragically many wolves in pulpits are making things much worse. They give no warning to the sheep of the dangers out there for fear of offending them. Offence-less Christianity is a lie from hell.
So many wolf-led churches are collapsing today – and then the wolves run away.
John 10:12-13 “He who is a hireling and not the shepherd, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf captures (harpazo / raptures) the sheep and scatters them. The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep.”
This tragic verse above spells out some shocking facts that are so relevant to today!
Note that the concern of the wolf is immediately for himself. He runs away and Satan raptures the saints and it’s not to heaven! The false teacher scatters the sheep!
How can you repent if you are taught that sin is not sin anymore, but a human right!
Enslavement to sin is endemic in our day. Once you submit your thinking to it, it’s like an open tap that floods sin into your life, and the group thinking of the deceived masses is the strength behind it.
The answer is not to turn a blinded eye to it or to legitimise sin. The stress and torment and tyranny created by sin in an entire nation or an individual can only be killed by the cross and true deep repentance, resulting in a change of thinking and actions.
Sin floods your thinking, but eventually it leaves you in a dry desert of desolation.
I have become most shocked to see how many ministries these days have welcomed in a mixture of God’s word and witchcraft. Once the door has been opened to witchcraft (in any of its forms) an illegitimate authority comes into play and the people become enslaved.
This is especially endemic in Africa, South America, China and other nations.
It is repentance and correction that cleans the slate and brings an ocean of refreshing into your life.
Here is the glorious course for the repentant believer, in three verses:
Acts3:19 “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.
Isaiah 42:16 “I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known, I will make darkness light before them and crooked places straight.”
Matthew 13:16 “Blessed are your eyes for they see and your ears for they hear.”
The world rejects the ways of the word, but many Christian reject the fullness of the ways of the Lord and mix in all sorts of philosophies, false doctrines and demonic trash.
Mixture produces a hazy, cloudy unclear position. The ungodly part of the mixture nullifies, neutralises and invalidates the whole – always.
1 Corinthians 10:21 “You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the Lord’s table and the table of demons.”
Your prophetic food:
Part of a pure, full gospel means accepting, and believing Bible prophecy, which makes up one third of the content of the Bible. It is God’s seal and stamp of the veracity of His word. Those without it are their own authority in a world of variables, full of confusion, incomplete, and powerless.
You can set your course after the Son of man, or the son of sin! One will save you and set you free and the other will enslave, you, capture you, and destroy you.
You can sit down at a beautiful “table in the wilderness” of this evil world and be thoroughly fed, filled, nourished and refreshed by our Lord.
Psalm 78:19 “They spoke against God: They said, “Can God prepare a table in the wilderness?”
Psalm 23:5 “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.”
What a surprise:
Hebrews 10:35 “Do not cast away your confidence (thoughts), which has great reward.”
This verse above is truly incredible – thank you Lord! The word “confidence” is associated with your thoughts. Note that even your right thinking has great reward coming for you. How amazing is that.
Edition 7. 11th August 2009
By Joel Joseph
May you be blessed of our Lord, Saviour, Father and Great God and be inspired in some way to move forward into the glorious things He has prepared for you.
In this edition:
●The great apostasy of the church
●The salvation of the Jews at large
●Obama and Oprah's terrible religion
Isaiah 62:1 "For Zion's sake I will not shut up and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until her Righteousness goes forth as brightness and her salvation burns as a lamp. The gentiles shall see your righteousness"
These are headlines and news snippets that have some prophetic significance, which I discuss briefly in the "commentary" section below. Very little of this will be found in the mass media.
● American Christians are falling away from the truth at an incredible rate. The article below in non-Christian Newsweek is horrifying indeed. Amazingly this warning is not being preached in any churches today and yet they are the subject. Most are asleep! But this is not only the case in the US it's worldwide
"The historic foundation of America's religious culture is cracking" says Newsweek. Two thirds of American Christians now believe that the US is no longer a Christian nation. The same number now believes that Christians are losing their influence in society.
58% of American Christians now believe that there are many ways to God and all other religions are equally valid.
Obama has made various hints that he is not a Muslim and is a Christian. His recent visit to the Pope is one of these. But what does he believe? The Chicago Sun reports that Obama is a Christian, but then adds "I believe that there are many paths to the higher power"
Stephen Strang of Charisma magazine wrote after meeting with Obama last month "He is a universalist for sure" "He believes that everyone will be saved"
This is the view of Oprah and sharply increasing numbers of Christians. Here is what Oprah believes as reported in many media (Interview on You Tube) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JW4LLwkgmqA and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecRnSTtOwcw
"No belief is required". "The man on the cross is an archetypal image, he is every man and every woman, there are many paths and many ways to God."
Churches in Britain are falling away from the truth at an alarming rate declares many publications. Old Anglican church buildings are increasingly being sold or rented out for rave party venues, bottle stores and the like. This is according to their own in house publication.
I have just researched the subject of the decline of Christianity and read many publications dealing with the same thing all around the world. I must say that I feel quite sick just reading it. Some of it is so bad I will not even write the words!
The truth will set you free declares the Bible. I wish to declare that seeking, finding and being in the truth is deeply satisfying, restful, fulfilling and brings oceans of peace and ends all stress.
Obama and Oprah are leaders of the great apostasy!
Oprah is a monumental deceiver. There are dozens of portions of scripture making it very clear that Jesus is the only way and only path to salvation. The one enormous bottom line is that if there are any other ways, then the cross of Christ was irrelevant and meaningless as was His shed blood.
Both of the links above have many other links within them to other similar satanic views by this queen of hell.
Oprah and Obama have the same religion...born in hell and destined for hell. Don't be deceived by the idea that being good without being born again of the Spirit of God can get you to heaven. That's pure humanism. The great tragedy is that the great apostasy of the church is starting to gather momentum right now.
Imagine the shocking catastrophe of stepping into eternity and then finding out that the Bible is true and it was right before your eyes in life and you rejected it!
It's vitally important to know where we are on the prophetic map.
Two of the great prophetic events to occur just before the coming of the Lord are the subject of this edition. One is the great apostasy of the church and the other the coming salvation of the Jews en masse.
There are many portions of prophetic scripture painting a horrific and tragic near future for much of the church. If you have any interest or concern for your eternal future please take these deadly serious warnings to heart now.
The Christian culture of the US is now post-Christian. As goes the spiritual so goes the natural. Is it any wonder that many American Christians now believe that they have lost the battle over many issues like abortion, same sex marriage etc.
Many churches are growing in numbers around the world, but at the same time many of these are growing in dangerous deception. They have moved so far away from the truth that they would not even recognise it!
The Bible paints the picture of the condition of the world and the church just before the coming of the Lord very clearly indeed. Let's have a look at a few of these dire warnings.
Perhaps the most important verse of scripture relating to current time period is found in Isaiah 59:14 which declares "Truth is cast down in the streets...so truth fails"
When we become weak spiritually and cast down truth, we open the door for all sorts of satanic advances. Is it any wonder that the great apostasy of the church and within the church is directly associated with the revealing of the antichrist and start of the tribulation period!
Here are some shocking truths...ignore them at your peril!
2Thes 2:3 "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 be revealed the son of perdition."
1Tim 4:1 "The Spirit expressly says that in the latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons" Verse 3 goes on "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine and with itching ears they will heap up for themselves teachers and turn from the truth."
2Thes 2:10 "Because they did not receive the love of the truth, God sent them strong delusion so that they would believe the lie!"
Matt 24:12 "The love of many will grow cold" (This is one of our Lord's warnings relating to the time period of His second coming)
Romans 11 Warns that God will "cut off" the gentile church if they come against His plan to re-graft the Jews back into salvation
The Revelation of Jesus Christ paints a picture of the church from its foundation to its end. The letters to the seven churches are very revealing indeed. Of the seven there are two that relate to this article. The church of Philadelphia is the church that goes from strength to strength. It is the church that "kept My word" On the other hand the church of Laodicea is the church that our Lord says he will "spit out of His mouth". This is the lukewarm church! And it is lukewarm to TRUTH that is the problem!
There are many other portions of scripture dealing with the same issue. What is important to note is that in the time period just before the coming of our Lord a large part of the church will "fall away" be in "apostasy", will "grow cold", will become "lukewarm" and "spat out" and will be "deceived" by numerous false teachers. Some will "depart from the faith" and many will be "deluded" and those that adhere to replacement theology will be "cut off"
There are two verses above that are so very important: The truth cast down or receive the love of the truth! Both have monumental consequences! TRUTH is the main thing, it must not be rejected, interfered with and become relative. Truth must be interpreted to your heart and mind by the author, the Holy Spirit and not the letter of the word.
The tragedy of our time is that there is a great apostasy just getting started now of the church and within the church, from the truth.
Let me make it very clear. God will not allow all of the church to fall away. There has always been and always will be a remnant of believers who will believe Gods word and stay true to Him. These will grow in glory, love, peace and joy as The Day approaches.
There is one all-important way to know the truth. Obviously study is involved, but it's the application of the cross that does it. As I die to self, so Christ lives and Christ has got it all! Less of me and more of Him is the way to absolute safety and security.
Much of the church has and is standing in the way of God's glorious new work in bringing the Jews to salvation. Lets bear in mind that the order as revealed in the Bible is "to the Jew first and then the Gentiles"
It is God Himself who is doing this new work. Church be warned...don't come against what God is doing. If He is stripping out the occult traditions like Christmas, Easter and the like, which all come straight from Babylonian occult worship...then I say "glory to God" We all like to say that God will come for a purified church, but many don't want to forsake their traditions!
The coming salvation of the Jews:
The above diagram displays the portion of scripture in Romans 11 in graphic form. The story is this. The natural olive branches (the Jews) were cut off because of unbelief in the Messiah. God grafted into the tree wild olive branches (the Gentiles). BUT then it goes on to say that God will re-graft the natural branches (the Jews) back into their own tree and will cut off many wild branches (Gentiles) as they reject what God is doing.
Gentile church, can you see the danger you are in if you accept replacement theology or come against this great, final work of God? You may say, "well I'm not coming against it" Then why are you doing nothing for it. Why do you continue to play your nice pointless little Christian games, when God is moving fast in the direction that you have no part in?
Let me remind you that Jesus says, "If you're not for Me you're against me" There's no neutrality!
We are now just starting to enter into the very exciting time of the re-grafting of the Jews back into their olive tree. We are starting to see Jews come to salvation around the world in ever growing numbers. It's just the start of a wave that can't be stopped.
This does NOT mean that the Jews are joining churches and becoming Christianised. The Messianic movement at large has its own identity, which keeps the Jewishness of the gospel. This is producing a wonderful new (old actually) expression of faith. It's just like the early church was in the first 300 years or so, before it took on the influences of Babylon and Rome.
Here are some amazing, little know portions of scripture relating to this incredible and exciting time we are going into now as Jews begin to recognise their Messiah.
Romans 11: 25, 26 "Don't be ignorant of this mystery...that hardening in part has happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved"
Jeremiah 30:17, 22 "This is Zion...and you shall be my people and I will be your God" (Context of end times)
Ezekiel 11:16-19 "Although I have cast them far off among the Gentiles...I will gather you from the peoples...and I will give you the land of Israel. Then I will give them one heart and I will put a new spirit within them and take away the stony heart..."
Jeremiah 31:31,34 "Behold the days are coming says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah" "For I will forgive their iniquity and their sin I will remember no more." (This is in the context and time period just before the coming of the Lord)
Ezekiel 20: 41,42 "I will accept you as a sweet aroma when I bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you have been scattered, and I will be hallowed in you before the Gentiles. Then you shall know that I am the Lord, when I bring you into the land of Israel"
Ezekiel 36: 24-27 " I will take you from among the nations...and bring you into your own land. Then I will sprinkle clean water on you and you shall be clean...I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you" (End time context)
Ezekiel 37:12-14 I will bring you into the land of Israel, then you shall know that I am the Lord...I will put My Spirit in you and you shall live and I shall place you in your own land" (This is the "dry bones" end time prophecy)
Zechariah 12:19 "I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of Grace and supplication, then they will look on Me whom they have pierced. They will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son. 13:6 "and someone will say to him , 'What are these wounds in your hands?' Then he will answer, 'Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends" verse 9 says "I will say, 'This is My people and each one will say, 'The Lord is my God'"
Zechariah 8:13 "It shall come to pass that just as you were a curse among the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you and you shall be a blessing" (All in the context of the soon coming coming of the Lord)
Zechariah 8:23 "In those days ten men from every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man saying, "Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you" (Context is the time period just before the coming of the Lord.)
Hosea1:10 "It shall come to pass in the place where it was said to them (children of Israel) 'You are not My people' It shall be said 'You are the sons of the living God'"
Isaiah 60:14, 15 "The sons of those who afflicted you shall come bowing to you (Germany too) and all those that despised you shall fall prostrate at your feet and they shall call you The City of the Lord, Zion of the Holy One of Israel"...I will make you an eternal excellence"
There is a strong consistency throughout the scriptures on this subject. You need to be either deceived or uninformed not to see it all. Try reading just the minor prophets right through...you can't miss it!
The above verses of scripture are just a handful of many more dealing with the new great work of God in bringing salvation to the Jews. We are at the start of a paradigm shift for the church as well. It needs to get with what God is doing or run into big trouble. Much needs to change drastically within the church. A fast growing number are starting to run with our God, but alas many would rather remain in their comfortable traditions of deception and ignorance.
The close of the present age will be marked by a great falling away of much of the church. Simultaneously part of the church will become purified and grow in glory while a large part will be spat out and rejected by God. At the same time a great re-gathering in salvation of the Jews at large will occur.
Sadly much of the church will become the enemy of Israel, the Jews and the work of God! In fact its already happening on a large scale.
What amazing drama this is. Shakespeare would never have been able to even think of such drama! It really is exciting times. Dangerous times and glorious times. Be sure you are on God's side. A number of portions of scripture declare that this issue invokes the fury of God and will bring terrible judgement on those who stand in His way.
These are vitally important issues, please don't be complacent with them.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and hang in there!
