    Each episode is just getting better and better, Joel! This is my favorite thus far!

    When you end with encouraging your viewers to be diligent about sharing the good news of the gospel of Jesus and not just a personal understanding of end-times events in and of itself because as I see it, we are the generation that will see the return of Jesus! Therefore, the urgency to make known the plan of salvation to those who are spiritually lost is why your readers study end-times!

    Oh, and p.s. glad you added theme music to your program! I made a comment about you doing that on Twiiter when I saw your pilot episode and it just needed a little something. Now, it is just right!

    So your new studio is your old tool shed in your backyard????? Hey, that is convenient! But what did you do with all those useless tools, they have no home now???? LOL! See, I was listening via the Internet on Saturday when you were at ESM. Careful what you say, some of us actually listen!! LOL!

    Blessings!

    This really encourages me. I love watching these every week. I also heard you at the Prophecy Summit Northwest and it was great. My 3 favorite teachers/pastors. You’re a normal down to earth guy. I love it. I got a chance to visit El Shaddia and talk with Pastor Mark and he is the sweetest guy. I appreciate your attitude towards muslim non-believers. I admit I get caught in the feeling of wanting to fight and avenge my brothers, but thanks to your preaching of the Word, I’m more focused on trying to gain more brothers and sisters in Christ. God is doing a mighty work.

    Joel, this is excellent. I am brought to tears by the last part of the prophecy in Isaiah 19. I also recall in a previous presentation of yours that you said Egyptian Christians are learning Hebrew based on the prophecy of the flight into the wilderness; so they are preparing in advance to shelter the Jews. Egypt is where Mary and Joseph and the infant Jesus found refuge from Herod. Joseph’s family was saved from starvation because of the efforts of Joseph in Egypt.

    As we pray for the Egyptian people, let’s also pray for President el-Sisi’s protection, and that he will come to receive Jesus as his Savior. He is a courageous leader.

    I feel relief after seeing this video messages.

    A large part of my upbringing and thinking about the end times always was concentrated on the evil that is coming upon us, on the dangers and pitfalls, and on all disasters that are going to happen. Interesting and sensational, but also making me fearful and depressed – and for these reasons often reluctant to share it with others.

    You now help open my eyes to a perspective on good that is also going to happen, even during the very difficult times, and to a perspective on the even better things after the ordeal.

    Even Jesus himself needed to focus on his future glory to endure his ordeal. So need we. Your message helps me focus on this more.

    Your calm and un-sensational presentation also is a relief to me. And it makes you more convincing either.

    Thanx and keep up the good work.

    Joel
    I’ve been following you for quite some time and find your videos, articles, and books the work of a true lover of Christ.
    As someone who believes Biblical scripture to be true, and teachers I trust few, I request you consider answering the following two questions. I will understand, given the current social climate, if you don’t.
    My understanding of scripture makes homosexuality a sin. In your opinion is that view correct? Is it possible that inherited sin or some other biological factors make this common homosexual statement true “I was born this way”?
    I ask these questions because much “turmoil” exists within my country (Canada) around this issue.

    Blessings on you, your family, and your ministry.

    Anthony,

    Not sure why you are asking me, but yes, homosexuality is sinful. Period. While I am sure some are born a bit more prone to particular sins than others, I do not believe a single person is born gay. Never have.

    Of course, like anything else, we are called to love those who struggle with these sins. God loves them and deeply desires their repentance etc.

    Blessings, Joel

    @Anthony- I know you didn’t direct your question at me, but I want to jump in. I think we’re all-in a certain sense- “born that way.” Sinners. The question of precisely how innate a particular sin is is (in my opinion) just a red herring. “Born that Way” is not an excuse, it’s just the fact of the matter.

    We’re all born sinners in need of a Savior. That’s what makes Jesus’s sacrifice necessary.

    Joel, this was very good information and so good for the soul. Appreciate what you are doing with this program. I love the way you are connecting the dots in the middle east. The history of the M.E. was written centuries ago.

    Keep up the good work, I will spread the word about your program!

    Joel – great stuff and spot on. We are praying for your work. I met you at the NW Prophecy Summit – enjoyed the messages and the brief tape from the Middle East. Looking forward to your work with FAI as well. And hope you enjoy the two books by George Peters – we all need a real Kingdom focus in these days – that is where we are headed – the return of the King.

    Hi Greg,

    Thanks so much for the books. Genuinely appreciated.

    Will dig in for sure. Remind me again of the link to the site where other such works are available.

    Bless you!

    Adamant’s comments also made me realize how good it is to see video on Bible Prophecy THAT DOESN’T HAVE CHEESY ORCHESTRAL APOCALYPTIC MUSIC SCREAMING IN YOUR FACE THE WHOLE TIME!!!

    Hahaha! When is THAT trend going to die?

  • Joel
    Posted at 21:07h, 31 July

    Ha. Finding good appropriate music that one can use is so hard. I’ve spent countless hours trying to find the right stuff. But I really like what we found for the Underground. Mildly techno, not quite dub-step. Dalton’s music and sound effects in Covenant and Controversy are simply outstanding.

    Blessings Joel – you display the heart of God. I hear it when you teach and read it in your books! Thank you for getting to the heart of the matter! Your book “When A Jew Rules The World” was so informative- but I cried and felt like I had just walked thru Yad Vashem again to think of ‘Jacobs Trouble’.
    You have given me wisdom to pray better – for a “Paul” to rise up out of ISIS – for the church ( my brothers and sisters) in Iraq and Iran and throughout the Middle East and for Israel – that Abraham’s seed would have their ears and eyes opened to recognize Yeshua our Messiah!
    God Shalom be yours,
    Kelly

    Greg Parker,

    I want to thank you for sharing the book, The Theocratic Kingdom by George Peters, with us. I went and downloaded the kindle version of it, at a faction of the usual cost, and have consumed it already.

    Since Mr. Peters lived and died in a time before Israel became came a nation it was quite unique watching his foreknown wisdom, and faith, from this side of the establishment of Israel, because he knew without a doubt it was coming.

    The kingdom that is discussed, God’s Kingdom, is that kingdom that shall be preached unto all the world for a witness, and then the end shall come, is it not? How timely the majority of the scriptures are all pulled together into one place within this labor of love for us, painting a complete picture of the fulfillment of the covenants given to the fathers Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and David.

    Joel’s last video talked about balance. How it is good to balance the right before Christ’s return with Christ’s return and after. Given even that it’s the return and after that the whole world groans for and all the covenants, prophets, Apostles, and Jesus point to.

    We are indeed a blessed generation who are alive to witness these things written about come to pass. Thanks again George, and also Joel.

    In Christ

    Cathy

    The cloud’s that we are talking about in scripture of the LORD’s coming is the Shekinah the cloud that was with us at the wilderness time and not heavenly clouds check it out.

  • Joel

    And after He had said these things, He was lifted up while they were looking on, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. And as they were gazing intently into fnthe sky while He was going, behold, two men in white clothing stood beside them. They also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into fnthe sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.” Acts 1:9-11

    Hi Joel,
    Dan. 11:41, “He will also invade the Beautiful Land…” My understanding is that the Beautiful Land is Israel. Are you familiar with that rendering and do you subscribe to it?….and your rational.

    Yes.
