|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.|

What the world wants is a better place. They are working to try and bring peace to the world. They want a better life. Satan will oblige – for a while! Then comes swift, sudden destruction. The funny thing is that the people of God have already found what they’re looking for: Eternal peace, victory and joy. God’s “better place” is already here! The kingdom of peace is here, in our hearts and is soon coming in full universal manifestation!
Colossians 3:1-3 “If then you were raised with Messiah, seek those things which are above...set your mind on things above, not on things of the earth.”
1 Corinthians 2:12 “We have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from 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:
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!

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 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!
