|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.|

- Israeli election: The final result is still up in the air, but it seems like Netanyahu will be able to put together a coalition favouring Likud and himself, as at 21st September.
- Oil wars have the potential to cripple the world economy. When the US attacks Iran, Iran will attack Israel and "pop goes the weasel!"
- New US imposed sanctions on Iran's banking fraternity will further cripple their collapsing economy. = Hooks in jaws? (Ezekiel 38:4)
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
Isaiah 42:16 “I will bring the blind (Israel) 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.”
Micah 7:8-9 “Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; when I fall I will arise, when I sit in darkness the Lord will be a light to me...He will bring me forth to the light, and I will see His righteousness.
Isaiah 29:18 “In that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of the obscurity of darkness.”
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.
20th September 2019
Shabbat Shalom to all!
The exciting wait:
We remain in an impasse relating to the Israeli election outcome, and many other prophetic developments.
It’s as though God has put His finger on the pause button. It won’t be for long!
Don’t you just wish things would get moving and hurry up?
We must not try to ‘move’ things ourselves, in our time instead of looking to God to move in His time. But to be fully on His side, we need to grin and bear it!
I do expect things to suddenly escalate, perhaps in a most unexpected and dramatic way. Once the ball does get rolling, it is likely to roll very fast. One thing I do know for sure is that at the end of the day, everything will have worked out God’s way exactly and in His exact time. So we can rest (impatiently) in that!
The recent Iranian attack on Saudi oil Installations needs to be addressed.
Why did Iran hit Saudi Arabia? These two nations have been at each other’s throats for years. They have a deep rooted ancient hatred for each other’s brand of Islam. It is primarily a religious conflict.
Saudi Arabia was the home of the queen of Sheba in the Bible. It is identified as the land of Sheba and Dedan (Ezekiel 38:13), which is WW111 also called Gog and Magog. (Dedan is Yemen today)
Interestingly, the Ezekiel prophecy aligns Sheba (Saudi Arabia) with a group of nations which can be identified as the major western nations including the USA of today. This alliance is Israel-friendly as revealed in that prophecy, as they come to Israel defence.
What is so interesting about this is that only a few years ago this sort of alliance (Saudi Arabia, the US, Israel) would be so far out of the question!
The point is that Iran with pre-loaded religious hatred for the Saudi’s, now sees this alliance with whom they call the “great Satan” and the “lesser Satan,” the US and Israel.
Add to this Iran’s attempts to hit the world economy through its lifeline of black gold – oil.
Add to this the consistent, repeating statements of extreme hatred for Israel by Iran. If you have an arch-enemy who repeatedly says he is going to destroy you, that should raise you to action.
And then finally, what Iran really hates is the fact that Israel has been chosen by God for His purpose and that the US has been chosen by God to stand with Israel. So it’s a conflict with strong spiritual undertones as well.
Now, let’s add to this the fact that Bible prophecy has a 100% fulfilment record. I think it’s not a good idea to own property in Iran now!
So, looking at all of these factors, I hope you see how volatile, unsettled, unstable and explosive it is.
In these days particularly, we are in desperate need of prophetic glasses. We need to see, know and understand what the ancient scriptures have to say. If not danger of deception lurks!
Israel is the real target. That’s not surprising.
Tragically, and unbeknown to them, the churches of replacement theology are allies of Iran and enemies of God’s plan for Israel. Many churches are silent on the issue. Silence is tolerance and compliance!
Baa, baa black sheep have you any wool? Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full – all full of deceptive disease. That’s the state of many ministries today relating to Israel!
So, how do you think it will all play out? The Bible tells us.
The Jews have a chilling chant relating to the Holocaust – “never again” but tragically, the Bible does reveal that a new holocaust, very different to the original will occur on Israel’s way to glory. The world has learnt nothing and neither has much of the church!
Israel please know and understand that there is a fast growing community of Christians who love you, and God’s plans for you, who stand with you and for you, and pray and fast for you regularly.
Iran is stirring in her final hatred for Israel. Iran has said numerous times that it wants to wipe Israel off the map. Well, guess who gets wiped off the map?
Jeremiah 49:36-37 “Against Elam (modern Iran) I will bring the four winds from four quarters of heaven and scatter them towards those winds. There shall be no nation where the outcasts of Elam will not go. I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies and before those who seek their life. I will bring disaster upon them, My fierce anger says the Lord; and I will send the sword after them, until I have consumed them.” (Ezekiel 38:5 = parallel.)
And here is a message to Iran about Israel from God:
Isaiah 61:7 “Instead of your shame (Israel) you shall have double honour, and instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess double; everlasting joy shall be theirs.”
That's God’s “final solution:” Iran get's wiped off the map and Israel gets double honour!
Jeremiah 24:7 “Then I will give them (Israel) a heart to know Me...”
Do you hear the trumpet? Do you hear the knocking at the door of your heart to be ready?
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!
