    Good stuff bro! Really enjoyed everything at the OneKing 2016. Can’t recommend this trip enough to others. It was a blessing from the sites & Brandon’s insights, to the teaching at the conference, to the fellowship & worship, to the intensity in my heart/spirit walking through the streets of the Old City in Jerusalem, to hearing the stories from Jewish & Arab believers, etc. I thank God for the blessing of getting to go. To Anyone able & interested, I would seriously pray about going for it. It was awesome. Really enjoyed your fellowship too Bro. A kindred heart/spirit indeed. Till the whole world hears the good news, the harvest is complete & our Lord splits the skies & returns on that Great Day!
    God Bless – Jeff M

    Hi Joel!

    Now I understand why you were so excited about going to One King Global when I saw you in April. It was such a blessing to hear both you and Sam speak about what God is doing in his city, Jerusalem. I agree with you, the worship there in Israel is like no other that I have ever experienced when we toured Israel last November. It was for me too, one of the memorable highlights being on the worship boat on the Sea of Galilee at sunset. Just seeing Jerusalem again as your show’s back drop was fun for me to know that I also have walked there and hope someday to go back.

    Blessings!

    Wow, the sound of the sermon in the background was chilling. Imagine being a Jew living there and hearing that. I would love to go there. After watching the Global Jesus Revolution I was moved to tears. I want to be where the action is. I don’t care how dangerous it is, I want to see God’s actions right in front of my face. I want to see people who search for a God and then they finally find him, I want to see them transformed. I feel so stagnant in the numb United States. Nobody here cares it seems, but in the Middle East they are searching, they are finding him and things are happening so fast! They are not afraid, they don’t care if they are persecuted, they truly love Jesus. Truly eye opening.

    Joel,
    Sharon and I and my boys enjoyed your talks so much at the OneKing conference in Jerusalem. It was life changing in many ways and I want to thank you for your work and writings. The reality that God has a plan for the people of the Islamic world just as he does (maybe more so) for us typical Christian Gentiles. Powerful and impactful stuff!
    God Bless you.

    SO great to meet you on the trip Joel! It was an honor. Thank you for your devotion to God and His work. It has changed our lives. Like I told you on the trip… I need your next book ASAP! I will take an ARC with a million typos if I have to:) Haha! Love you brother! LOVED the One King trip so much. Miss everyone already.

    Hi Sheila,

    It was great to meet all you as well. I had a great time, even if I was exhausted much of the time. Thanks for the encouragement.

    Bless you!

    God bless you guys,
    The Islamic noise was crushing, and distracting from your message. It is awesome that you had the time to share and encourage believers in Jerusalem and I look forward to going some day.
    I have only just found your ministry and watched another episode. Just wondered that in Daniel 11:37 that the scripture says the antichrist shows no regard to the God of his fathers, nor the Messiah, nor any other god; which from both Daniel 7&8, seems to indicate that this little horn will be atheist, not Islamic(come from Javan/Turkey/Assyrian ). I would doubt that the Jewish leadership or even Israel would trust an Islamic leader to be a messiah, unless he was like Jesus and areligious.
    Love to chat,
    Praise the Lord,

    Hi David,

    I hear these specific objections frequently. First, Daniel 11 says the AC shows no regard for “elohim ab.” That refers to the God of the Bible, the God of the fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He shows no regard for the God of the Bible, nor the Messiah, nor any other god, however, he does honor a “god of fortresses” whom he hours and pays heed to with gold, silver, etc., as traditional worshippers do. So he is certainly not an atheist.

    Likewise, the Bible no where says or even infers that Israel will trust Antichrist as a Messiah. No where. The Antichrist will not be viewed as the Messiah of Israel. Rather he is a foreign invader who begins with deceit and deception. Israel regularly entrusts itself to various Muslim leaders with regard to treaties etc. Arafat being an obvious recent example.

    I would encourage you to get my book Mideast Beast. I am sure it will answer many of your questions.

    Blessings,
    Joel

    Isaiah 62:1-7, and especially verses 6&7, comes as joy to my ears after hearing the background adversary noise. God bless you and prayers of protection in the turmoil

    Joel, I throughly enjoyed this Undergroud episode recapping the Jerusalem One King Recap. I find it exciting to see and to hear what God is doing in these last days. Reseeing the temple mount with the Dome of the Rock glistening in the sunlight and hearing the prayers of Muslims all mocking the Lord Jesus added an eerie flavor to the episode. You mentioned Jaye Thomas leading the praise and worship. I had the priveledge of watching, Jaye, and his brother, Jonathan, grow up. They attended our summer camp every year, and in their later teens worked with us as cabin directors. Out of the thousands of kids that have attended our camp the past 42 years, we are proud to see hundreds of them like, Jaye, and, Jonathan, serving the Lord in worldwide ministries. But then to God we live in a very small world.

    HI O.A.

    Thats fantastic. Yes, they were both in J’lem. Two exceptional brothers.

    Bless you!

    Yeah amen, I Didn’t get to spend much time personally with Jaye, but his leading of worship was definitely anointed. I did get to spend a pretty good amount of time hanging out & fellow-shipping with Jonathan. A great brother in the Lord indeed. I can see clearly that God is going to use that man for his purposes in the days ahead for sure. A really neat brother.

    Joel. Maybe you address this in one of your books but I’m curious about your take on the false prophet. Do you think he is a Jew or gentile. He seems to get less attention than is deserved as the deception danger he poses seems very significant. Do you think he calls down fire in the sight of men as an attempt to validate the third temple, in copy cat fashion to the way God answered Solomon at the inauguration of the first temple?

  • Joel
    Posted at 11:11h, 10 July

    Hi Marcus,

    Its a mystery. The issue of the false prophet is particularly tough as it is a subject that finds no solid basis in the Old Testament. Thus it is largely a new revelation and we are given limited information. We can only speculate.

    Hi Joel.
    It was great meeting you and Samuel and the team in Israel. Watching this weeks episode brought back the amazing feelings and memories that Mimi and I will keep forever. I preached on Israel today and shared some of our experiences and the presence of God was so beautiful that we kept worshipping way after the service was supposed to finish. Thanks for all you brought to the conference. There were so many highlights and insights. Shalom. Mark and Mimi.
    PS. If punching a great white shark is still on your bucket list, come over. Probably should’nt make it the first item on your list though, you may not get to the rest.

    I have heard theories explained that it is “the evil/last pope”, that it is a false Islamic “Jesus” (Isa Al Masih) who performs miracles (lying signs and wonders) & points people to follow the Islamic Mahdi, & I have heard theories of it being an ecumenical Orthodox Jew. If it turns out that the antichrist is Islamic & is their Mahdi, the fake Jesus (Isa Al Masih) seems to make the most sense. At that point I can “assume” he’d be Jewish? Even still, that’s a speculative guess, eh? Maybe it’s a Jewish Pope named Isa that performs lying signs & wonders & tells the word to follow the Islamic Mahdi & satisfies all 3 theories? ????

    Its the second to last on my list. ; )

    It was a real pleasure meeting you and Mimi as well brother. I really hope to see you both again. Stay in touch.

    Sorry I had to leave before you spoke, Joel. But thanks for the time in the courtyard.

    Hope to see you again some time, and I will certainly be visiting you through your blog and documentaries.

    Blessings of shalom and many more.

    The whole trip was just an absolute blast. Going to Israel is awesome enough, but doing it with such a great group of brothers and sisters just made it that much better. Jeff! How you doing, bro?!

    It’s funny but I don’t ever remember hearing all that noise when we were there. Not sure how I missed that.

    Joel, it was an honor to meet you. Look forward to keeping in touch. Praying for you and the debate.

    Just got to watch this last night. Powerful. I have been reaching out to a young Muslim colleague (“Y”) at work. He is quite open to discussions with Christians. Your comments on the spiritual battle over the Temple Mount and the antichristic “God has no son” assertion of Islam helped clarify the nature of the spiritual struggle that Y is currently experiencing. The account of the OneThing intensive was inspiring. Did you by any chance meet a young man named Paul who is from the Ottawa area? He is a friend of mine.

  • Joel

    I did meet Paul, and loved him. He is an exceptional guy who I hope to be able to see more of.
