●The US election remains undecided as the legal battle gets underway. Anywhere God’s ways are revealed, it all comes under attack. The battle at the moment is for biblical principles in the land (at least some) and the ways of the wicked. The US has had the privilege of having God’s word define family. His word defines a male and female. His word defines where life begins. His word defines what sin is, righteousness and holiness is. The removal of the Bible from society opens people for the evil and wickedness to manifest and grow unhindered. (Jeremiah 17:9) Removing God removes restraint and puts the masses in terrible agreement, awaiting judgement. (Hosea 4:1-2) The US Democratic Party and all liberal left movements around the world are collectively orchestrating their own demise. There are far bigger things at work than politics!
Job 12:24-25 “He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, and makes them wander in a pathless wilderness. They grope in the dark without the light; he makes then stagger like a drunken man.” (So now you know why Joe must go!)
This election is far from over, and may spring a surprise soon!
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose of this report is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
What is the Salvation of a nation?
Isaiah 32:18 “My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places.”
1 Timothy 2:2 “Pray for kings and all who are in authority, that you may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.”
As Christians we are ambassadors for Messiah’s kingdom, sent to the darkness to shed God’s light in it. Of course, there is a limit to that, because Satan is the god of the world, but nevertheless we do need to be God’s torch-bearer.
Jeremiah 29:7 “Seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive and pray for it, for in its peace you will have peace.”
There’s a distinction between God’s requirements for personal salvation and for the salvation of a nation. The scriptures need to be applied to each. So many, including pastors go off into a ditch on one side of the road, and essentially loose the plot!
It’s not so much about Trump or Biden, but more about spirits and biblical issues.
It’s not so much about the personalities but the policies and principles they represent.
In supporting one candidate, by default you are rejecting the other. So if one candidate represents a whole lot of biblical issues and the other, the opposite, you are standing for the policies much more than the personality. You cannot support one candidate and not all of his policies.
What’s different now is that God’s judgement has entered front stage. The call for repentance on the big world-influencing issues like abortion and moral degeneration is being echoed by all men of God, in tune with God, and even most rabbis.
If the call for repentance goes unheeded, judgement is on the doorstep. The liberal left parties, worldwide are not only ignoring God’s call, but making the situation far worse, by intensifying their rebellion on the very issues that have caused God’s judgment.
Psalm 58:2 “In heart you work wickedness. You weigh out the violence of your hands in the earth.”
We as believers are to go into the world from a position of being separate from it. I heard one pastor say the other day: “O well let’s just forget about Trump and focus only on Jesus.” When you throw in the towel of your ambassadorship you are capitulating to the devil. (2 Corinthians 5:20)
I’m not by any means suggesting that Christians become politicians, or go overboard on these things.
The Bible divides us into spirit, soul and body. The Bible says we are in this world but not of it.
It is our soul and body that is in this world with the nations. It is our spirit that is born again and seated in heavenly places.
We are not to be in friendship with the world and entangled in it, but to operate as agents of the kingdom of God, bringing both light and warning to the nations.
Multitudes are in the valley of decision not just about politics but their eternal life. Many are going to come like a flood into the kingdom in coming days, and many will be swept away like a flood!
I have written much on this subject, but the Bible is full of it. Here are more appropriate verses:
Proverbs 24:21 (Amp) “My son, reverently fear the Lord and king, and do not associate with those who are given to change of allegiance, and are revolutionary.”
Proverbs 28:28 (Amp) “When the wicked arise, men hide themselves, but when they perish, the righteous increase and become many.”
Proverbs 28:2 (Amp) “When a land transgresses, it has many rulers, but when the ruler is a man of discernment, understanding and knowledge, its stability will long continue.”
Proverbs 29:16 (Amp) “When the wicked are in authority transgression increases, but the righteous shall see the fall of the wicked.”
Isaiah 60:12 “The nation and kingdom that will not serve you shall perish; those nations shall be utterly laid waste.”
Psalm 9:17 “The wicked shall be turned back into Sheol (hell), even all the nations that forget God.”
Nehemiah 4:14 (Amp) “Do not be afraid of the enemy, remember the Lord great and terrible, and imprint Him on your minds, and take from Him courage to fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives and your homes.”
1 John 4:4 “Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.”
If President Trump is returned to office, the world may get a respite and holding off of judgement for a while, but it won’t override God’s overall purpose of bringing the rebellious world to its knees! If Biden ends up on the throne, it will expedite and hasten the terror to come.
You can and must secure your salvation now. If you are not sure or not saved, now is the time – not tomorrow! As you will see in the new edition, “Contrasting new world orders,” we are on the very verge of some things that will shock, stagger, surprise and stun you!
Edition 6. 28th June 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 world declares..."stop the settlements".
●Syria threatens to take back the Golan by force.
●Tony Blair, the Middle East envoy says peace comes by capitulation.
● The worlds kings and our soon coming King who is alive and very well!
●Will the world end soon? yes it will, no it won't! Define your terms correctly.
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.|
●Massive, sudden pressure on Israel to capitulate to the Palestinians. G8 nations, plus nations of USA, Russia and EU collectively demand Israel freeze all settlements and tear down those built since 2001! (AP, Jerusalem Post June26.)
●Syrian officials now threatened to take back the Golan Height by force, if agreement not reached with Israel. Syria calls the Golan "Syrian land" (Haaretz.com June26th)
●Syria: Obama acts to restore relations. The first stage is to send an ambassador to Damascus. (CNN June 25)
●The world worships their dead king of pop.
Syria is playing with fire! Isaiah 17 declares in a prophecy yet to be fulfilled that Damascus, the capital of Syria will "cease from being a city and will lie a ruinous heap..." This nation has a prophetic destiny soon to hit the headlines. Damascus is not a good place to buy property!
Syrian leader Assad has just rejected attempts to resume peace talks with Israel. The Syrian leader has said that they will take back the Golan Heights by force from Israel, now that peace talks are no more.
Syria has been off the radar screen of late, but is now awaking to a shattering, future. Damascus has never been destroyed before. The context of this prophecy relates to end time events. I'm not saying that this is it, but it's not far off. Syria is already part of the Arab alliance, now ring fencing Israel with greater audacity. the Bible declares that it's days are numbered. Keep an eye on this dark horse in the near future!
Syria is part of the ancient land of Persia, which was present day Iran, Syria and a few other smaller parts of neighbouring nations. Persia is described in various Biblical prophecies relating to an attack on Israel in the latter days. The giant war of Ezekiel 38 and 39 is one of them. After incredible destruction and with God's help Israel emerges victorious, but heavily damaged.
This is most probably the time period in which God lifts the veil of spiritual blindness on the Jews at large. This is already starting to happen now.
Isn't it interesting that now is the time Obama decides to normalise relations with Syria and set up diplomatic ties, by first of all deploying an ambassador to Damascus!
What to me is so interesting is that world alignments are shifting and falling into place like a giant jigsaw puzzle, painting a clear picture, already outlined in Bible prophecy, written thousands of years ago! Amazing indeed, oh and did I mention exciting as well!
G8 quartet in new settlement freeze demand:
Never in the history of the world has a nation built another nation within its borders, and from the destruction of the Temple 2000 years ago, no nation has ever claimed Israel or part of it as its own. The notion that Israel belongs to the Palestinians is a giant disastrous mistake based on deception, lies and ignorance.
The fresh demands from the major nations of the world that Israel cease building so-called settlements (even natural growth) and evict those in so-called settlements since 2001 is a travesty of international law and justice, but much worse than that is that it places the world on an ever-increasing slippery slope to the fury and judgement of God.
This G8 meeting was held in Rome, and will be followed up with another one in which the Arab-League nations will join in. Israel has not been invited although the purpose is to discuss Israel's settlements!!
No worldly leader has the right or authority to declare and determine the boundaries of Jerusalem or Israel. This flies in the face of God's eternal covenants, but it also confirms that Bible prophecy is unfolding fast before our eyes.
The incredible thing about all of this is that precious-few churches are even aware of the situation. Most that are aware are in fact supporting the forces of darkness...what a tragedy! The amazing thing is while most churches continue in blindness and deception, preaching self- promotion and self-motivational rubbish, the Glory of God is working in the hearts of those who are open to Him. They see and understand clearly the urgency of the time.
The problem is that the world-view of most churches is one of growing prosperity, happiness, and success in and of the world. With this being the case obviously the unfolding of prophecy upsets their apple-carts! It throws a huge spanner in the works of a world of peace and happiness.
Tony Blair has just declared..."Peace in the Middle East is now within reach, if Israel compromises"! Oh yes, Tony, do you think God is going to compromise on His covenants and plans, just for you? Listen, Tony, even if you do get Israel to surrender to the devil, you have no chance of even getting to chat with God on the issue. You Tony, together with your other bunch of merry men don't even know that you are messing with the "apple of God's eye" You are on the wrong side of His choice and as a result have a terrible destiny ahead of you.
The problem is that you, Tony and your merry bunch of marauding butchers will either lead or force Israel to slaughter. Eventually, the world at large and most of the church will betray Israel and only God and His servants with a heart for His plans will stand with Israel as they face a second Holocaust.
Tony, let me appeal to you...if you want to be the world's Middle East envoy, you should try finding out at least the basics of Gods plans for the close of age. After all He has the keys for your eternal destiny as well.
Israel beware, Tony Blair is your enemy, a dangerous enemy who comes in the name of peace.
In relation to the current time period, Isaiah 59:14 "Truth has fallen in the street"
Here are some of Israel's new modern enemies: Obama, Clinton, Sarkozi, Merkel, Carter. They are playing with fire!!
Joel 3:2,4 "I will enter into judgement with all nations on account of My people and My heritage Israel whom they have scattered among the nations, they have also divided up My land...Will you retaliate against Me, swiftly and speedily I will return your retaliation upon your own heads. Vs 9 "Prepare for war...beat your ploughshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears. Assemble and gather all you nations...multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision for the Day of the Lord is near"
Zechariah 12:3 "...All the nations of the world are gathered against Jerusalem"
Zechariah3:2 "The Lord said to Satan, The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you"
Zechariah 8:2,3 "I am zealous for Zion with great zeal (lit. fury), with great fury I am zealous for her. I will return to Zion and dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. Jerusalem shall be called the City of Truth"
The kings of the world:
The King is alive and coming soon. Oh yes He is! The world system has it's kings too. King Elvis died broke in a drugged out state of drunkenness. The actual cause of his death was drowning in his vomit. Now comes the death of the king of pop. He died broke, in debt and with a squandered, wrecked life lived for self. We don't know all the details yet, but early reports say that he had three drug injections a day, plus a whole lot of daily drugs, and drink, which most probably killed him.
These are the world's kings and the world worships them as gods!
Thank God for our eternal, soon coming King of Kings and Lord of Lords! He died too, an innocent man, who gave His life for the salvation of whosoever would believe in Him. Our King rose from the dead to Glory, while the world's kings live forever in hell!
Speaking of the Great White Throne Judgement, which is the final judgement of all the unsaved, The book of Revelation says, Rev 20:11, 15: "I saw the dead both great and small standing before God... and anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire".
Worldly greatness saves nobody. If it could, the cross of Calvary would have been meaningless!
The world will end soon / will never end!
No, I'm not confused. I thought that this presented a good opportunity to briefly discuss this somewhat controversial subject. Some people quote verses of scripture implying that the world will never end, while others, like myself say it will end very soon.
Both are right to a degree. We need to look at the original words used in the scriptures to get clarity.
The Greek word in the Bible for world is the word 'kosmos' while the Greek word for earth is the word 'ge'. Simply, 'ge' is derived from soil and applies to the physical earth, the mountains, rivers, sea etc. The word 'kosmos' means the adorning of the earth with its socio-political world. It refers to the man-made aspects of life upon the earth. It has it's kings and it's god. Satan is called the god of the world and the world-power.
Our Lord will renovate the world at His soon coming and prepare it for the millennial age.
So, the world (more correctly, the earth) will never end, while the world that now is, will come to a bitter end soon. It's all about defining your terms!
Satan is called the world-power or 'kosmokratos' in Greek. 'Kosmos' is the word for world, while 'kratos' is the word for power.
There is another amazing descriptive word from the Greek. It is the word "Hupokrites." Yes the word hypocrite is derived from it, but it's origin is very interesting. Hupokrite is a theatrical word. In ancient Greek theatre the hupokrite would come onto the stage to introduce the next act. If a comedy, he would wear the smiley mask. If the next act was a tragedy he would wear the frown mask. We still have these two masks today representing theatre.
The point is that the word hupokrite means the one behind the mask is not the same as the mask he portrays.
Now isn't that very interesting indeed. Satan comes as an angel of light, with many masks. both good and bad but he is the deceiver behind the world. The world-power (kosmokratos) is none other than the great two-faced deceiver. (hupokrite)
If you look back at previous editions you will see that so many of the pieces of the prophetic jigsaw puzzle are falling into place before our eyes. This edition simply makes the picture a little clearer. Of course, I am presuming that you have at least a basic understanding of prophecy in the first place. If you are new to our Lord's Kingdom, I encourage you to study God's Word with urgency.
If you are a long-standing believer who has neglected these things, I encourage you to repent and get your priorities sorted out and study God's Word now.
Job says "I consider Your Word more than my necessary food."
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and hang in there!
