|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.|
►We have now reached 45 million regular visitors.
►Next Edition, Lord willing: "Golan Gaza and more."
•Live "Breaking News" tickers - click the button top left, or Here.
- Gaza is in the spotlight. Golan is about to be in the spotlight. You may be amazed to see what Bible prophecy reveals about these two regions, as well as the timing. Stay tuned!
- Israel attacks dozens of targets in Gaza in response to their rocket fire into Israel.
- President Trump signs declaration that Golan is Israeli territory, with Netanyahu watching.
- US Republican Party to introduce two new bills outlawing anti-Semitism as the Democrats welcome anti-Semites into their party.
Eternal enemies with an eternal hatred without reason are proof of God’s choice and plan. Satan would not bother with Israel if God had finished with her.
We are seeing a global eruption of the world’s most unfair, “ancient hatred”, now being perpetuated by Islam, The British Labour Party, much of the US Democratic party and almost all of Europe. (Ezekiel 35:5-6, 25:15-16) Ditto for the rising persecution of Christians.
Moses said to Pharaoh, “Let My people go”. The call today is just the same: “Let My people go from anti-Semitism, hostility, persecution and hatred.” Our job as Christian ‘My people,’ is to “Let My people know”!
Isaiah 57:14 “...Prepare the way, take the stumbling block out of the way of My people.”
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.
22nd March 2019
Shabbat Shalom to all:
The devolution and decline of society:
We have just started the season of the feasts of the Lord, with Purim a few days ago. Purim is all about the failure of Israel’s enemies to defeat her. Purim is centred on Esther, who was chiefly responsible for saving her people. Are you called to be a modern “Esther?” Many readers are!
●Passover April 19-27. ●Pentecost June 8-10 ●Rosh Hashanah Sept 29th October 1st ●Atonement Oct 9. ●Tabernacles October 14-20
The spirit of error, untreated, advances like a cancer and mutates into a curse. Teachers or leaders who’ve fallen under a curse then become cult-like with an equally deceived following. I have witnessed many people fall right into this trap of late.
Some have turned on me with a vengeance calling me various names because I don’t and won’t support their doomed error, and because I warned them many times!
When you constantly resist and reject the things of God in favour of error, or rampant sin, you get “handed over.” (Romans 1:24-26) At this point, pride takes control and your conscience is seared and your free will becomes an enslaved, slave, controlled and dominated by the god of sin.
Enduring error, because it is a spirit, produces strife, stress and argument with God. “There is no peace for the wicked,” (Isaiah 48:22) no matter how much they cry, “Peace, peace!” (Ezekiel 13:10)
As goes the spiritual, so goes the natural! This is a spiritual principle. A lot of the reason for the chaotic, devolving world is the compromise of the modern church! For example the sequel or fallout of replacement theology in the church is seen in anti-Semitism in the world.
When God and His word are cast down by society, it has terrible knock-on effects. The nation begins to fall. A nation under God does not mean a born-again nation as such. It is a nation which has employed, elevated, and respects general godly biblical principles for a nation.
Throw God’s word out and the slippery slope of doom begins. Life becomes valueless except as a political football to score points, as we see so clearly in the mass-media.
The world walks over God’s word, which they have cast down. But the believer walks through God’s word ingesting it, consuming it and filling himself with wisdom and light!
In a world where God has been cast out, godless educational institutions become the gates of hell for the youth.
When God is removed from society, law becomes lawlessness driven by the law of sin and death. The church becomes a democracy and a dead tool of the system. When you forsake the law you are a law unto yourself and “yourself,” is fully blinded to spiritual reality.
When God and His word are cast down, Israel would have to fit in with the world-system and submit to the evil god of inter-faith and to Islam’s goal. The Jews would become nothing more than political chess-men, and Jerusalem becomes the devil’s pawn.
When God and His word are removed from society, the true born-again Christian must also be rejected or removed by persecution and martyrdom.
When God’s word is cast down, salvation becomes a mere, dead word and nothing more than a change in political ideology to suit the god of the world and his doomed hordes.
Right now we are seeing a massive worldwide spike in the martyrdom of Christians. The mass-media keeps their biased mouths closed, resulting in few being aware of it.
The mass-media hates God and His own. Their bias has turned from prejudice to hostility and now open hatred. This is clearly seen in their silence on the massive increase in the killing of innocent Christians worldwide.
►For the true Christian, martyrdom is the ultimate slap in the face for their murderers and supporters by the surrogation of silence. The martyr is promised special eternal reward, over and above other rewards he will receive.
The martyr dies, but receives the eternal Crown of Life!
It is the unsaved Jew, the Muslim, the counterfeit Christian, and the like, who should weep and howl and mourn with many tears when they are killed or die. They are not saved. Don’t cry for the true Christian martyr! Cry for yourself, lying mass-media, and destroyers - you are the ones who need a lot more than sympathy!
Here are just a few verses I’ve put together which succinctly describe the course of this present world. I’ve not included any comment. They speak volumes:
●Those who forsake the word (law of God) will praise the wicked”. (Proverbs 28:4) ●“There is no truth or mercy, or knowledge of God in the land, people break all restraint, with bloodshed after bloodshed and the land mourns.” (Hosea 4:1-2) ● Righteousness stands afar off, for truth has been cast down in the street”. (Isaiah 59:14) ●“Horror has taken hold of me because of the wicked who forsake your word (the law of God)”. (Psalm 119:53).
2 Thessalonians 2:11 “For this reason (not receiving the love of the truth), God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie.”
Job 38:15 “From the wicked their light is withheld...”
Psalm 36:9 “In your light we see light.”
You can’t live in peace in error! You can’t make peace with the devil, especially on his terms, and in violation of God’s word. There is a peace with the devil, which comes about when he has conquered a human heart, he has victory then, but it is the victory of hell. (Isaiah 14:9)
Psalm 43:3 “Send out Your light and Your truth; let them lead me and bring me to Your holy hill.”
Psalm 60:4 “You have given a banner to those who fear You, that it may be displayed because of the truth, that your beloved may be delivered.
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!
