Hosea 4:1-2 “The Lord brings a charge against the land: There is no truth or mercy or knowledge of God in the land. By swearing, lying, killing and stealing and committing adultery they break all restraint, with bloodshed after bloodshed...And the land mourns."
Isaiah 59:14 “Justice is turned back and righteousness stands afar off; for truth is fallen in the street.”

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!
Signs of numerous times:
Biblical signs are designed to draw people in to the kingdom of God and to our grand Messiah. They are not designed to promote the pomp of pastors and teachers. Biblical signs will get the attention of some and others will never respond or believe.
Far too many teachers use signs which are not true signs to elevate themselves.
Signs do not take the place of the Holy Spirit who is the primary agent in these things.
True biblical signs can be very exciting indeed.
But don’t go overboard looking for signs everywhere. Your faith is much more important.
There are signs relating to almost every subject of the Bible:
There are numerous signs of the times we are in now. There are signs of The Lord’s coming, signs of the coming tribulation, signs of the veracity of the Bible itself, and of false prophets, teachers and deception. There are examples of erroneous signs, and signs of biblical truth. We see signs of the antichrist arising and many signs of anti-Semitism and replacement theology in the world and the church.
They are all there if you honestly look for them, led by the Spirit. Signs are really for those who want to see! If you genuinely encounter the Spirit of God, He will firstly cause you to repent. If you really see the true signs, you will repent.
Signs presented as from the Lord, which fail, are in themselves a sign - a sign of a false teacher. These failed signs instead of causing repentance cause mocking, scoffing doubt, discouragement, disbelief and falling away! (Deuteronomy 18:21-22, Jeremiah 23:30-32)
Great discernment is needed in these things, it’s no small issue!
Micah 3:6-7 (Amp) “It shall be night to you and you shall have no vision, yes it shall be dark without divination (comprehension) and the sun shall go down on the false prophets...and the seers shall be put to shame...for there is no answer from the Lord.”
Jeremiah 14:14 “The Lord said to me, ‘The prophets prophesy lies in my name. I have not sent them...”
Signs and Israel:
Isaiah 8:18 “...We are for signs and wonders in Israel, from the Lord.”
The greatest sign is Israel’s journey to salvation, and yet most can’t see it at all! They think it’s just the normal progression of history.
We are now, even within the next few weeks, at the point where signs for Israel are about to break and come into play. (1 Corinthians 1:22)
Of course regular readers know just how it will work out in the end:
Isaiah 66:19 “I will set a sign among them (Jews)...they shall declare My glory among the Gentiles.”
Funny things this: The world calls the Palestinian territories the “occupied territories.” But have a look at the verse below and see what God says!
Deuteronomy 1:8 “See I have set the land before you; go in and possess (Lit=occupy) the land which the Lord swore to your fathers – to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give to them and to their descendents after them.”
Other verses show that these areas to be occupied by Israel are in fact today’s so-called West Bank, Jordan Valley and surrounds.
So, Netanyahu promises to annex these very areas, and the world comes against it!
Beware of disinformation and collusion alliances! These are the methods of the media to entrap you.
Bible teachers today, more than ever, need to be full of great truth. The secret key is to teach the full gospel as led by the Spirit. (Hebrews 6:1-2) If you do it will contain within it a powerful method of checking. It will show Israel is: ●Elected ●Rebelled ●Rejected ●Regathered ●Repented ●Accepted.
Any doctrine that does not include all of the above bullet points, in that order is suspect!
Today many teachers stop short at “Rejected.” You can hear them and tell them a long way off. They make derogatory remarks about Israel and her fall and never have any good thing to say about what is coming for Israel. Their teaching will not bear witness in your heart. Obey that still small voice.
When the Jews come to spiritual life, it will be a great sign for the world and in fact for themselves also. It will be “Life from the dead!” (Romans 11:15)
When you are fully surrendered to our great King and Lord, everything in your life’s doing goes through the cross and is approved by our enthroned King. When not, life is a hit and miss affair founded on all that is shifting and shaking, surrendered to your own pride!
►Psalm 82:5 “They do not know, nor do they understand; they walk about in darkness. All the foundations of the earth are unstable (Lit=moving).”
Proverbs 4:19 "The way of the wicked is like darkness, they do not know what makes them stumble."
The great shaking is beginning. We see it as we look at the sudden deterioration of law and order, morality and political chaos in the world. World war is on the horizon. Will you be able to stand securely, if we are not snatched out of here before?
Will you be able to help others see and stand in these days?
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!
