    An excellent point regarding Jeremiah’s lamenting over Jerusalem’s destruction Joel. Before one even goes into a ‘deep’ study, the notion of the angels rejoicing over Jerusalem’s destruction is instinctively at odds with God’s love for the city expressed in scripture.

    The a c is called the rod of God’s anger, not the weapon of his eternal destruction.
    Looking forward to next episode.

    Love it bro! This type of examination & of comparing scripture with scripture in their argument is very helpful & necessary to the one who wants to defend their position Biblically against these positions of error. I think God can, & will, use humble men who love Him & His Word/Heart to steadily turn the tide of all the new, trendy, intellectual positions of preterism/historicism one person at a time through a thorough, humble & prepared defending of judeo-centric premillennial futurism, & you’re equipping the saints for the task through this type stuff right here. Keep it up, keep it coming, stay humble & keep looking up! Blessings in Jesus!

    Well done once again Joel, you presented a good and Scriptural against Preterist and also against Jerusalem being MYSTERY Babylon.

    Tishri 1, 2020 is the day the order will go forth to restore and build Jerusalem, including the temple on the temple mount. After that day there will be much to reveal.

    Hello Joel,

    I’m halfway through your book so it seems you are saying Mecca is the whore. I’m also reading a book by Mark Davidson called Iran’s Great Invasion. Mr. Davidson thus far has given mention to you favorably and says that the next prophetic event will be Iran’s invasion of the entire middle east, including south towards Saudi Arabia. How do you view Mr. Davidson’s predictions? Would you agree this is likely the next event on the prophetic calendar? Will Mecca just have a change in landlord (Sunni to Shia)?

    Hi David,

    I have not yet read Mark’s book, but I am looking forward to it. I do agree that Daniel 8 very well may be the next major prophetic event to unfold in the region. To some measure, we could say it is already presently unfolding. To the degree that we know exactly what that will look like and the various specifics, I tend to be a bit more cautious than Mark, but I think I do generally agree with him here and think I do think folks should carefully consider his perspective for sure.

    Hi Joel,

    I was privileged to read the advance copy of Mark Davidson’s book, “Iran’s Great Invasion” based upon his research of what he believes is the “second sign post” in his four sign post theory from his other book, “Daniel Revisited” leading up to the revealing of the biblical anti-christ. It is very reasonably priced book which is a narrative, fictionalized format making for a quick read. I found it very compelling and current as it relates to global events as we look out over the prophetic horizion regarding Iran.. This small book which lends itself to a serial book set for his other sign posts makes for a good start for those who are beginning to look at biblical prophecy being relevant to them and their lives, but overwhelmed at where to start. Prophecy is daunting for many who have not studied it and are intimidated by it, and this could be helpful to them. It is biblically based, but not over anyone’s head. I enjoyed the book.

    I love you newr book, “Mystery Babylon” as well. I think we have in both books an appetizer (Mark’s) and a main entree’ (yours) for biblical prophecy connoisseurs.

    Isaiah 50:1
    This is what the LORD says: “Where is your mother’s certificate of divorce with which I sent her away?” Doesn’t His question imply that there is no certificate because God has never rejected his people ? That’s what it looks like to me.
    God bless

    Joel, a very good presentation. If you have not read Dr. Ken Johnson’s translation of the Book of Gad, the Seer, you should. In approximately 1,000 BC King David’s Seer, Gad, dealt with the issue of replacement theology. It is a very interesting real. it is not long.
    I agree with you on the Islamic Antichrist. It is pretty clear he will be an Assyria, from what was Assyria or descended from the Assyrians.

    I really appreciate the heart-felt appeal for God’s love for the city upon which He has placed His name. Jerusalem has another 1000 years to look forward to, and she will be called YHVH Is There! (Ezek 48:35) May we see it in our generation!

    Hi Joel, I have an unrelated question but cannot find another place to post it. Do you have a place to post general questions on prophecy?

  • Penelope L
    Posted at 11:18h, 21 March

    Hi Joel!

    Do you think there is any correlation or significance to Jerusalem described as an adulterous wife in Ezekiel 16, Jesus’ lament for Jerusalem in Matthew 23:37, the two witnesses of Revelation 11:7-8 lying exposed on the streets of Jerusalem (the great city which is allegorically called Sodom and Egypt), and Mystery Babylon being called also “that great city…”?
    Any importance of Jerusalem being home to the Dome of the Rock and Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which coincidentally has recently restored what they claim to be the tomb of Jesus?

  • Joel
    Posted at 13:05h, 21 March

    Hi Penelope,

    I address most of this in the book. Ezekiel 16 ends with the Lords plans to restore Jerusalem, despite her unfaithfulness. Babylon however is destroyed forever.

    Joel, your posts on The Harlot of Revelation have been most informative!

    By the way, you may be interested in this article from The American Spectator today, “Erdogan’s Caliphate Threatens NATO”. Since you’re traveling you may not have seen it.

    Thanks Joel,
    I certainly do not need an answer quickly. So thankful for your ministry in the Middle East. We are praying for you, the people you will be working with and also your wife and family while you are away.
    My question is concerning the “restrainer” and “the man of lawlessness” in II Thess. 2. I have only heard one interpretation–that the restrainer is the Holy Spirit, and He will be removed at the rapture since He dwells in believers. The man of lawlessness is the Antichrist, thus the Antichrist will not be revealed until after the rapture. Not sure if I agree with that. But I would like to hear your interpretation and reasoning behind it simply because is I appreciate your very careful exegesis when it comes to prophecy. I will be teaching II Thess. in the near future and would like to be able to handle this scripture rightly.

    Hi Joel

    I was looking at the word for ‘sacrifice’ in Daniel 8 and Daniel 11 and comparing this to Daniel 9:27 when looking at the terminology for a different study, Daniel 8/11 refers to the daily sacrifice where the word ‘sacrifice’ includes the daily sin offering, whereas Daniel 9:27s, the term ‘sacrifice’ has an equivalent term as the passover sacrifice in Exo/Lev, and the wording does not include ‘daily’. Do many authors hold to an interpretation that the day that the AC will ‘put a stop to the sacrifice’ will fall on passover, leading to more evidence that the start of the tribulation will fall 3.5 years earlier, i.e. on one of the Sept/Oct feasts?

    I would like to comment on your response to Penelope, which seems to suggest that present day Jerusalem cannot be .Mystery Babylon because one has a very bright future while the other’s is very dark and foreboding.. Yet aren’t there two distinct and completely contradictory Jerusalems ,which even the plural nature of the Hebrew name implies?
    Isn’t present day Jerusalem represented in allegory, as Hagar, who is permanently excluded from the camp of Abraham and by extension, the blessing which God has given him?
    I’ll admit that every possible candidate for the city of ill repute seems to have major theological problems but I guess that is why God has said:
    It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.
    Be blessed in all things Joel.

    Excellent teaching Joel! I especially appreciate you expounding on what the New Covenant is, and that it hasn’t been fulfilled as of yet.

    I would like to make an important point though. And that was in regards to your discussion on God divorcing Israel. While it is true that God did not divorce the southern kingdom of Judah, Jeremiah 3 clearly outlines God’s divorce from the House of Israel (the northern 10 tribes).

    8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.

    Not only is this a critical point, but it also explains why Jesus said he was sent to the House of Israel, when clearly they had already been scattered among the nations by the time He had arrived on the scene. I won’t comment more on this now, but there is so much here to unpack and understand.

    Thanks again.

    Joel I’ll ‘try’ not to post you anything else, but thought you may be personally interested in this piece about micheal Flynn.

    Erdogan must be gutted he’s gone, it would seem Flyn discussed whisking Gullen to Turkey without following any legalities. You were so right about calling him out.

    I’ve read both “When a Jew rules the World” and “Islamic Anti-Christ” and I am very intrigued by the idea of a Muslim/Islamic anti-Christ. I know Joel and Walid Shoebat have considered Erdogan as a potential candidate, however, I’d be curious to know what they think of Assad as a potential candidate…2 curious things stand out to me about Assad: 1. He was born on September 11 (potential significance of astral signs on September 11 3 BC with regard to Jesus’ birth) and 2. He will be 62 (age of king Darius when he was made king) in 2027 which I personally think may be a potential year for the rise of the anti-Christ/the desolation. Thoughts?

    Hi Michal,

    The Antichrist has yet to be revealed in my opinion. The Lord will make it clear at the proper time.
