Israel: Elected, rebelled, rejected, regathered, repented, received, realised plan.

This is the greatest drama in all world history – ever! It is all succinctly contained in the string of words above. For you benefit and study, I have compiled a few of the thousands of verses dealing with this great drama into a compact, concise grouping.

They shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and all the prosperity that I provide for them.”

Poetry is not really my thing. But I do recall lots of poetic thoughts as I walked around the streets of Jerusalem some time ago. I was awe struck not by where our Messiah walked, but the thrilling thought of where He will walk. The dusty streets, stones and walls became the subject of some paintings I did later. But I’m now going to wax lyrical. I’ve put together a painting of words – for your benefit.

Ancient stones are whispering silent soliloquies, among the sun-burnt walls. Corner-stones of spiritual stability and strength, still stand secure, riddled with holes of the ancient hatred’s bullets, and stained with dried blood of ages past, and present times too.

These stones of Jerusalem’s protection are stones of separation – holy, immovable stones, seemingly dead, but breathing life of living history. The moss-dripping masonry are milestones, with living, green twigs in crags - walls of ruined relics, written into eternity’s word.

Listen to the stones; put your ear to the walls of wisdom. Do you hear the cries of the dead? Do you hear the shrieks of celebration? Do you hear the rocks, the great carved boulders, and the pebbles, anointed with glorious and fearful prophecy?

The scarred stones of poetic justice are again announcing judgement soon to fall. The ancient stones are echoing the warnings of God. No other city-stones speak thus.   

Sin's offering, the offspring of evil, will soon yield frightful fruit: Fear, horror, terror and panic. Even the beautiful aged stones of Jerusalem will shiver and shake under earth’s soon quaking!  

Yet the calm, confident, contentment of fearless holiness, and eternal beauty will stand secure amongst the strain and stress of destruction's dread.

Sin’s eternal separation from the victory and glory-producing suffering of Calvary will soon be the shock of all shocks to the sin-filled world of self-worship.

Do you see the lion on the wall? Do you hear the eternal Lion, and His severe message? Do you hear God’s trumpets under His Lion’s feet and in His roar?

Can you distinguish between the Lion of God and the roaring counterfeit lion frightening only the spiritually frightened and fragile?  

Sound the trumpet! Sound the glistening terrible trumpet. Sound the trumpet of ingathering. Sound the trumpet of great victory! The world’s blinded ears see nothing – fools of tragic fools - deceived in the midst of God’s shining love – rejected!

Sound the trumpet! Sound David’s harp, and raise the golden sword of glorious victory!

The sword of Satan has pierced the Shepherd, but soon the Shepherd’s sword shall strike the roaring serpent and the people will scatter to a certain hell, with all the sin-filled nations drowning in their doomed sin. Babylon’s man-made, imposter-made,confused bricks of mortar will be no more.

Sound the trumpet. Raise the alarm, raise the sword of glory, and roar, Lion of Judah - roar! Awaken your people from fateful slumber, to their coming Lamb.

The stonework of the stonemasons of Jerusalem speaks of salvation past, present, and soon to come. The stones of Jerusalem contain a living message, a message of life, eternal life, freely given but of utmost cost and glorious value.

But you must bow your speak to the speak of these sculptured, weathered  virtues. You must fall on your face in the dust before the message of these rocks of ages. As you do, salvation speaks, and soon shouts, lighting the core of your life with unquenchable, immortal fire – the fire of God!

These old speaking stones sing a new song of stern severity, of great gravity. They are sharp, hard stones, but soft and gentle to His own. They are stones of solid prophecy. They will fall on and crush the nations. They speak of things to come, and very soon too.

As we see the spectacular, dramatic, majestic message of the walls of Jerusalem, Let’s take a glimpse into the exclusive, holy, eternity of eternities:

There will be stones of pure silver, streets of glorious gold. All around, imbedded in gates and walls, always open, will be unimaginable jewels. They will be jasper, sapphire, emerald, pearls, topaz, beryl, amethyst, rubies diamonds, and more.

There will be no sun or moon - the light of God’s glory will be everywhere, forever – always.

There will be the tree of life, next to crystal rivers, each tree yielding fruit once a month and there shall be no more curse! Lions shall be your friends.

The army of the Lord will now be the bride of Messiah, bedecked in righteousness, with incorruptible crowns of untarnished magnificence, ready - forever and ever.

Isaiah 9:7 “Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end...”

The Lion of lions, the Lamb of God, the sword of pure peace, will be our very comfort and eternal grace. Stones once silent, will serenade and sing with a song of songs and a descant that will reverberate through the universe.

Are you ready for the great grandeur - the glory to come?

Shalom...Joel.


Suicide:

This is a huge, very fast growing problem worldwide today.

Suicide is generally a capitulation to the pressures of stress anxiety, despair, helplessness and more. All suicide surrenders to the enemy – death.

Suicide involves a turning away from God to a focus on self.

Proverbs 1:32-33 “The turning away (from God) of the simple will slay (Lit=kill) them...But whoever listens to Me will dwell safely, and will be secure, without evil.”

Self must go to the cross, where it dies - not at your own hand! Cross-death always results in resurrection to newness of life.

Suicide is often caused by and related to demonic curses at work. Suicide itself, almost always generates generational curses in the families of those left behind. These forces need to be dealt with, addressed and broken through spiritual warfare.

I don’t know what the numbers are, but I can tell you, according to numerous Bible verses, that huge amounts of psychological problems are caused by involvement in the occult, and all related activities. This always brings demonic activity.

I am now going to build a scenario based on some all-important verses. Don’t stop reading now!

1 Corinthians 3:16 “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you. If anyone defiles (Lit = destroys) this temple of God (the body), God will destroy him...”

This is the famous verse used to suggest that those who commit suicide, killing the body, will be spiritually destroyed by God. It is the verse that has created the suicide-stigma for ages.

There really is no other interpretation of the verse. So, that simply means, - don’t gamble with it! What if it means exactly what it is saying?

Now let’s have a look at an incredibly deep and far reaching verse:

2 Corinthians 4:17-18 “Our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”

This verse says that all our problems no matter how big, are temporary. They are in fact “light afflictions” while we look at what we can’t see – heaven and our future glory. There will be no problems in heaven. There will be no sin in eternity. All sin, problems, and the like, belong to this temporary realm.

If we endure through them, a miraculous thing happens. Instead of a heavy weight of stress and problems, we receive an eternal, heavy weight of glory as reward.

As said, all our problems are related to sin somewhere in the chain, and all sin is of this temporary world. Now have a look at this verse:

Daniel 9:24 “Seventy weeks are determined for your people and for your holy city, to finish transgression (Lit=sin), to make an end of sins, to make reconciliation for iniquity (sin), to bring in everlasting righteousness...”

So this is saying and confirming that all sin will be forever destroyed, and everlasting righteousness is coming. How wonderful is that?

So why swop a glorious eternity where there will be no sin or problems of any sort for a temporary realm of sin and problems?

Problems are temporary, even if they last all your life on earth that is still temporary. Why cause yourself eternal problems based on a temporary situation?

Do you see how unwise it is to focus on the temporary and miss out on the eternal?

You see, in this life we always have a chance to go back, repent, or change things. Suicide though, is final and complete. If you have made a huge mistake by committing suicide, you can’t go back and change things. It’s done!

The verses I’ve used here say: Suicide will get you destroyed (in hell). All problems which are sin-related are temporary. In eternity (not far off) all sin will be gone and everlasting righteousness will be here. Endurance through all problems and looking to eternity, will make your problems a “light affliction” and give you an eternal reward of glory!

Joy is found in and emits for your spirit. Happiness or unhappiness are temporary and originate in the physical and bodily areas.

1 John 2:17 “The world is passing away and the lusts of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever,”


The Great Nibiru deception:

The word “Nibiru” comes from the ancient Akkadian language and it means “The crossing, transition point.” In ancient history it was the common name for the planet Jupiter and no other.

Planet Nibiru is also called Planet X, and Planet Nine. It is presumed to be a large planet in a very large irregular orbit. According to Satan’s servants, it is going to strike the earth soon.

Some predicted with “100% certainty” that it would strike the earth in 2003 and others said July 2012! Other poor, deceived, gullible, liars responding to fake news websites have claimed that NASA knows about it and is covering up the whole story. They claim that Nibiru is now going to hit the earth this month (December 2016). Some claim other future dates.

Only insane liars with cell-phone cameras have been able to “find” and “identify” Nibiru! No bone fide, trustworthy, reputable amateur or professional astronomer, or government observatory has ever been able to find any trace of it.

Here is a video clip of how you too can deceive everyone by creating your Nibiru with your spectacular, all-seeing, rubbish cell-phone camera. This way you can join the lunatic fringe and spread the deception far and wide as well. (There are many other similar videos) Click HERE.

Bear in mind that every space-body, be it an asteroid, planet or star has its own unique radio frequency or signature, just like a finger print, which can be identified by radio-telescopes. So even if the object can’t be seen through a normal optical telescope it can be identified by radio-telescope.

If you are going to claim that this planet is going to hit the earth or come anyway near us, at a particular time, you simply have to have the trajectory and the speed of the object.

You CAN’T send someone in a rocket to the moon if you don’t know the moon’s trajectory, and speed, and your vehicle’s speed. That is elementary grade 0.

All these stupid, deceived Nibiru hunters seem to have forgotten that, proving just how ignorant they are.

Origins are important: In 1976 a man named Zachria Sitchin claimed that an unearthed Sumerian tablet spoke of this planet. He claimed that Nibiru first came softly to the earth 450,000 years ago and offloaded a bunch of technologically advanced little green men called Anunnaki’s, who then evolved into humans! Sitchin predicted that Nibiru would come to earth again in the year 2900! (Yes correct)

Now we have a God-denier named Nancy Lieder, an alien contactee with the so-called ability to hear messages from extra-terrestrials. She predicted that Nibiru would hit the earth in 2003. It didn’t so she moved her date forward to 2012 to coincide with the end of the Mayan calendar.

Since then hordes of Internet fools empowered by deceiving spirits have jumped onto the sorry bandwagon headed for outer darkness just like Santa in his open sleigh.

Enter Google Sky and the missing blank rectangular spots.

Our very clever, deceived, conspiracy theorists now come up with the presumption that NASA is trying to hide Nibiru by blanking out a spot in a photographic image which makes up their overall night-sky image. Well it is Google Sky that has these blanked out spots and Google has nothing to do with NASA. Other software programs like Sky Search have no blanked out spot in this same area, so you can see what is missing in Google Sky.

Surprise, surprise, there is nothing out of the ordinary in the Google Sky blanked out spot besides normal distant stars, as can be seen in Sky Search.

Goole itself has explained the blank spots, of which there are many. They are simply areas where the software programs were unable to fully “stitch” the many images together used to create the large, single end result. This is because the original images were two-dimensional and flat and then loaded onto a round 3D final source. This is why there are missing spots.

It’s like trying to cover a ball with a flat cloth. You end up with creases.

There is no conspiracy here except in the lunatic minds of the uneducated or deceived followers of Nibiru. You can see more at “Nut with a theory” HERE

You also have to wonder just why NASA, in cahoots with Google would try to hide Nibiru. That would backfire on them, because of all the other astronomers out there, who would find it. NASA never hid other close calls by asteroids. So why would they shoot themselves in the foot?

By now Nibiru should have hit the earth or at least be at our galactic back-door, easy to find and identify.

Nibiru is out of sight and can’t be found (except by dung-heads with cell phones cameras) because it does not exist. Of course it does exist right in the forefront of the minds of the gullible, the deceived, the deceivers, the liars, fakes, flakes and frauds. It exists in their minds because they want to believe the deception and reject the truth.

The Bible does talk about meteors and asteroids (plural) hitting the earth in the second half of the tribulation period – not before. Some will be big and cause much damage. None are called a planet, and none are called Nibiru , Planet X, or have any name associated with them. The use of the word "wormwood" in the Bible, describes some sort of destructive fall-out from one of these earth-strikes in the Revelation, but as said, only well into the tribulation period.

Of course you must understand that those who continue in this great deception are simply adding to the fake-news flood and cheapening the internet, making it more and more unreliable and discrediting themselves.

The problem is not the deception of Nibiru. It is that it is the crossing point into many other deceptions. It opens you up to all sorts of errors.

Ignorance and arrogance are the backbone of the gullible.

Bear in mind that all of the great deceptions out there especially on YouTube and the like, have the sale of books or advertising associated with them. Deception is a very profitable business, because ignorance is a very fertile ground for deception to grow in.

The need for repentance is always before us. The problem is that many people are so entrenched in deception that they won’t repent. As a result, they are always the ones who get led from deception to ever greater deception. My friends, these things are not static. Error always advances unless its power is broken, and then all is well.

I feel very sorry for Christians in these days going forward who are missing the needed gifts of the spirit to discern and identify these things and block them from advancing into your life.

Shalom Joel.
