- The Kushner / Trump Deal of the Century has had its initial section released for discussion, dubbed “The Peace to Prosperity Plan.” This will be a workshop in Bahrain on June 25-26. It is aimed at raising international investment for the Palestinians. Little appetite for it so far.
- Hamas says: “No ceasefire with Israel.” Iran says: “We chose the path of resistance only.”
- Tensions in the Persian Gulf remain extremely high.
People seek affirmation and acceptance. They seek approval and assurance, looking for validation and value. But they seek it in the world and in their own selves (flesh or sin nature) and there they encounter the father of lies, telling them that they’re okay. It is the world and self that must die on the cross! So why go to those sentenced to death for their sin, for approval? (Galatians 2:20, 6:14)
People must decide on the inherent goodness of man or the inherent wickedness of the heart of man. If the latter, a saviour is needed. (Jeremiah 17:9)
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!
A most dramatic prophecy:
I really do expect many big prophetic things to break onto the world stage within days, weeks and perhaps a few months. Now is the time to be ready and stay spiritually tuned in!
Tread carefully when the warning trumpets are warming up and the warning bells are ringing. Today, I want to put before you a dramatic prophetic warning about to break onto the world scene. With so many ducks in row – wake-up time!
Today there is an explosion of interest in end-time things and the spirit of error is there to provide the deceived with more deception, and Spirit of truth is there to lead the genuinely humble into all truth.
If all these events which are happening were not recorded in the Bible, and someone recorded them now, they would look exactly like Bible prophecy! But the unsaved world simply does not have spiritual eyes and ears to see any of it, or know it. They are wandering blindly in confusion.
Have a careful look now at the following few verses, they are dramatic to say the least!
Isaiah 44:28, 45:1-3 “(The Lord) says to Cyrus, he is My shepherd, and shall perform all My pleasure, even saying to Jerusalem, you shall be built, and to the temple, ‘your foundation shall be laid.’ Thus says the Lord to His anointed, to Cyrus whose right hand I have held – to subdue nations before him and loose the armour of kings, to open before him the double doors, so that the gates will not shut...I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places...”
These few verses above, speak prophetically of: ●The status of Jerusalem. ●The beginning of the building of the third temple. ●Subduing nations, weakening or causing their submission. ●Conflict with surrounding nations, ●Keys to double-door access to Jerusalem. And ●Oil!
But there is more: “Double doors” represent strongly secured doors or access. The context here is Jerusalem. Revelation 3:7 speaks of the faithful church being given the “key of David” which opens and no one shuts.”
This “key of David” is a reference to Isaiah 22:20-22 where Eliakim becomes a political leader, with God’s favour on him. He is given the “key of David” to open to the “inhabitants of Jerusalem.”
The name “Eliakim” means “God will raise him up.”
Cyrus was a godless leader, but God used him for His purposes. Here we see both Cyrus and Eliakim being examples in type of President Trump.
Remember last time I said that the decree of Cyrus to rebuild the temple happened as the seventy-year Babylonian captivity ended. In terms of our analogy in type, that is now!
Deuteronomy 33:24 “Asher is most blessed of sons; let him be favoured by his brothers, and let him dip his foot in oil.”
The land of the Hebrew tribe of Asher is foot-shaped, right in the north of Israel bordering the coastline, which is exactly where the huge, recently discovered “Leviathan” oil and gas fields are, which are already in operation. (“Asher” means: Blessed.)
There was also a recent large oil discovery in the Negev Desert. Israel is already supplying oil and gas to Europe and other neighbours. Iran and Russia do not like this one little bit.
Some 30% (18.5 million b/d) of the world’s oil passes through The Straits of Hormuz, a chokepoint in the Persian Gulf, controlled by Iran, on its way to the west.
This single spot has the potential to cripple the world’s economy if its life-blood, oil, is stopped. Iran knows this and has threatened to close the Straits before. But now so many other things are all lining up and cornering Iran like a rabid dog.
Bear in mind that Iran has just repeated its threat to attack Israel if the US attacks it. That’s like going to your next door neighbour on the right and punching him out because your neighbour on the left got on your nerves!
Actually, it’s all about dancing, deceiving, demons and devils in Iran’s head.
It is the modern Cyrus who will get all these things going. And yes, there is enough biblical evidence to identify President Trump as that man.
Israeli leader Netanyahu has compared King Cyrus to President Trump. Numerous Bible prophecy buffs have done the same. This is all analogy, type and shadow in operation, which I agree with here.
There is a rule in applying type to a biblical situation. Never take the analogy too far. It may be only certain aspects of the biblical source that apply in type.
Most importantly it is must have the leading and revealing of the Spirit of God behind it.
Bear in mind that those outside of the leading of the Spirit, or who have their own agendas, generally see nothing in the types and often resist them.
So, let’s see what we have:
We have President Trump’s backing, and securing of Jerusalem as belonging to Israel. This applies to Golan too. We will soon have the laying of the foundation of the temple. That is still to come. We have the subduing of nations through agreement like with Saudi Arabia and war coming with others like Iran. And we have the oil issue. We have the key to Jerusalem’s double doors being kept open.
This current prophetic scenario includes: ●Iran resumption of its nuclear weapons program, which is underway again. ●Iran’s repeated hatred for Israel, and threats against her. ●Iran’s crashing economy and currency, ●Iran’s attack on four ships (so far) in the Persian Gulf and its threat to use the closure of the Straits of Hormuz as a weapon against the world economy. ●A new 10-nation military confederacy in Europe has just been put together by Macron of France. ●Syria continues to sizzle ahead of its total destruction.
The law of war is not enshrined in the courts of the UN, the World Court, the EU, the UK, the US or Israel or any other nation. It is enshrined in the word of God. “The Lord of hosts” is used hundreds of times in the Bible. “Hosts” is the word for armies – the armies of our Lord.
The purpose for prophesied war and all these end-time upheavals is to bring in true world peace, righteousness and glory!!
Beware - many of these things will be coming with sudden shock.
Edition 5. 22nd 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 Temple in the news!
● The soon coming Temple on the Temple Mount.
●So many prophetic things dove-tailing together at once!
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.
●Former US president Carter says he loves the Palestinians so much and will encourage Obama to remove Hamas from the "terrorist organisation" list. Attempt to blow up Carter foiled as he entered Gaza.
●Now Iran's Ahmadinejad, joins the world leader chorus calling for a new world order. He says the US is in decline and a dramatic new deal is needed. He makes agreement between Russia, China and Iran to trade using their own currencies and not the dollar any more. (Press TV June17)
●Brazilian president calls for a new world order (June 17 AP)
●Russia to increase nuclear weapons four fold. Obama launches effort to reduce US nuclear arms (Msnbc)
●Obama promises the Palestinians, "Jerusalem will be yours" (Newsvine). Netanyahu says Jerusalem will never be divided. (Jerusalem Post)
●Only 6% of Americans now consider Obama pro-Israel (Jerusalem Post 19 June)
●Netanyahu says Obama will try to internationalise the Temple Mount. (Arutz Sheva)
●Jewish leaders are worried Obama will force us to divide Jerusalem and will cede the Temple Mount to the Palestinians. (Ynet News June 5)
●Netanyahu wants to re-build the Temple on the Temple-mount, says Palestinian sheik. He says there was never a Jewish temple on the mount. (June18 Arab News.com)
●Islamic leader Raed Salah says at Haifa University conference, "Netanyahu wants to rebuild the Temple. If they want us to give up our holy sites, we would rather die and we will welcome such death." (Ynet News 17 June)
The calls for a new world order and a new form of currency are growing almost daily now. What is happening is that this is "priming" the world to accept it when it becomes a major move of the devil. After all, look how often it has been spoken of and look at how many world leaders support it! Perhaps what is most shocking is that nobody so much as raises an eye- brow anymore. This says to me that, as in the days of Noah, untold millions or even billions are on the very brink of hell.
I outlined this in a previous edition, so I'll just briefly explain again. Building a new world order of peace is exactly what the Babylonians tried to do. God destroyed it than and will do so again, only this time the coming destruction will be a lot more widespread. The Bible shows that this new world order will work initially, but then all hell will break out further down the line. You need to build God's way and using His plans. Peace without the Prince of Peace at the helm will never endure!
The soon coming Temple:
Before we go on let me dismiss a myth being taught in many churches now. This dangerous deception is actually part of the whole "replacement theology" doctrine, which in a nutshell presumes that the church had replaced Israel and as such there is no place for Israel and the Jews besides them becoming part of the church.
No sir! God has a wonderful plan for both Jew and gentile that has distinctly different characteristics.
Many churches teach that God has no need of another temple, because we the church are that temple. They go on to teach that there is no need for the re-introduction of temple sacrifices, because our Messiah was the sacrificial lamb.
Yes true we are living temples and He was our once for all sacrifice, but we need to understand the prophetic scriptures. The Bible declares that God will bring the Jews back to the land of Israel first in their blindness and then this veil of blindness will be lifted and they will see that their Messiah has indeed paid the full price for redemption.
Besides this the re-introduction of sacrifices in the Temple may be a backward looking Holy convocation similar to our communion. We break the body and drink the blood of our Messiah in communion, but we do this as a convocation looking back to the full and complete work of our Messiah. No we don't believe that the actual breaking of bread and drinking of wine saves us. It was His sacrifice that saves us. In a similar way this could be what will be meant by the re-introduction of sacrifices in the coming temple.
Today there 12 groups working in preparation for the rebuilding. Even genetic line testing has been done to verify those that would become the priests. God anointed Aaron and his sons to be the priests. Aarons family name was HaCohen. Today the Cohen lineage has been traced back to Aaron!
They have already re-instituted the Sanhedrin, just recently. The job of the Sanhedrin will be to decide on the exact location of the new temple and to oversee the entire process.
Preparations for the coming temple to be built on the Temple Mount are well under way. In fact every item to be used has already been made and is simply waiting for the day. Here are some pictures from the Temple Institute of some of these items. On the left is David's harp, then is the pure gold Menorah (60kgs of pure gold) and inset is the pure gold crown (tzitz) just completed, to be worn by the High Priest in the temple. All the other temple items, implements, Holy vessels, garments etc have been made perfectly according to Jewish law. They can be seen on the Temple Institute's web site.
The Ark of the Covenant was the only object in the Holy of Holies in the temple. There are a dozen stories around of what happened to it. I think the most probable is that which is upheld by the Temple Institute, who say that after King Josiah had it removed fearing it's capture, it was hidden in a chamber deep beneath the Temple Mount. They maintain that its exact location is known.
An exact replica of the Ark of the covenant:
The Temple Mount:
Could this be a before and after situation? Here is an artist's mock-up of the new temple (below). Note the golden gate at the extreme right of the wall. This is the gate which the Bible says will be closed until the Messiah comes and walks through it into the temple at His second coming. The golden gate has been sealed shut for hundreds of years. The Muslims did this believing that this would prevent this portion of scripture from being fulfilled! The top picture is of the current dome of the rock on the Temple Mount. The bottom picture is the artists impression of the soon-coming temple.
I think what is interesting about both of these pictures is that they have a very stormy sky! We are going to see a lot more big storms over this issue!
The current dome of rock has the words "God has no Son" around the inside, cast in stone.
Ps125:2,3 "The sceptre of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous forever."
Today the world's attention is pointing to and zooming down from Israel to Jerusalem to the Temple Mount. This will be a growing centre of conflict, ultimately resulting in the manifestation of the Glory of God
There is of course one remaining major issue at stake, with the potential for a major conflict and this is the exact location of the new temple. This will be a major obstacle, because of Muslim domination of the Temple Mount today, but it's worth remembering that God has worked side by side with Israel on many occasions in the face of major odds and obstacles. The story of David and Goliath comes to mind.
Goliath the 666 enemy:
Oh, and by the way that story is very interesting. Goliath was six cubits tall, had six pieces of armour and had a sword weighing six hundred shekels. In terms of type and shadow, Goliath who represents the satanic enemies of Israel was therefore attached to 666, while tiny (in comparison) David, who represents Israel won the victory, with God's help. The modern David and Goliath battle has not ended, but I know won and who wins in the end!
All that remains of the last temple (above)...the Western Wall on the side of the Temple Mount.
What the Bible says about the coming third Temple:
Amos 9:11,12 and repeated in Acts 15:16 (relating to the restoration of Israel in the last days) "I will raise up the tabernacle of David which has fallen down and repair its damage. I will raise up the ruins and rebuild it as in the days of old. vs15 "I will plant them in their land and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord."
Revelation 11:1,2 speaking of the soon coming tribulation period, "Rise and measure the temple of God and the alter and them that worship therein, but the court that is outside the temple do not measure it, for it has been given to the gentiles and they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty two months"
2Thes 2:1,4 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...who sits as God in the temple of God showing himself that he is God." vs 8 "And then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will consume with the brightness of His coming"
Isaiah 2:1-3 "Now it shall come to pass in the latter days, that the mountain of the Lords house shall be established on the top of the mountains and shall be exalted above the hills and the nations shall flow to it, many shall say come and say let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob..."
The Bible teaches that the antichrist will declare himself as God in the temple. It also teaches that our Lord, at His second coming will go straight to the Temple and destroy the antichrist. Believe what you like, there will be a temple on the Temple Mount soon...one of the great signs of the soon coming of our Messiah.
What is very important here is that we are not far off from these things being fulfilled. As with previous editions, I am drawing your attention to the urgency of the time. You can disregard all of these things...at your own peril!
It really is amazing how so many things are dove-tailing together and starting to fall into place like a giant jigsaw puzzle. The picture is becoming more and more clear and the time is getting shorter. Please go back and look at previous editions and note how many prophetic things are lining up.
The world today is being primed for the soon arrival of its lord and god, Satan himself, who will manifest as the antichrist god of peace. Thankfully there are more and more believers being primed for the soon arrival of our great God King and Saviour!
The powers of deception are great and growing. We are fast entering a period which will see a growing outpouring of the spirit of antichrist and the Spirit of our Lord, King and Saviour. I appeal to you from the bottom of my heart, don't underestimate the evil powers at work and do soften your heart to our Lord and His word and ways.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and hang in there!
