Hello everyone! Isn’t it great to get together with other believers like this and fellowship and share the Word together? That’s what I like to think I’m doing as I write these posts every week. Part of the dialogue we share together is comparing notes with what we’ve learned since the last time we were together. That’s especially true of those who have a great passion for Bible prophecy -the study of what is happening in the world and how it lines up with world events. We compare notes and see what each other thinks. You agree up to now, correct? 🙂
I just say that to encourage you NOT TO SCOFF at those who are watching and share that they suspect that a certain time period is a high-watch time. None of the Bible prophecy teachers I follow dogmatically say that a certain day is definitely the day of the Rapture. They’ve said that it’s strongly a high-watch period based on Biblical statements compared with things in the world. That should tell us that they are serious watchers. Are you watching as closely as they’ve been? I doubt if any of us are.
Now, of course if someone DOES say that Jesus absolutely IS coming back for His church on a certain date, do not listen to them. PRAY FOR THEM. Listen carefully to what they say. If they seem puffed up and arrogant about it, I don’t listen to them nor will I share their messages here on my blog. If they seem to be humble and seriously seeking and not dogmatically insisting on an exact date (not just a high -watch time), I respect them for the effort they’re putting in to watch and keep us informed. They should be prayed for especially because the world and many many Christians are scoffing at them and slandering them with others.
DON’T YOU BE ONE OF THEM! Pray for them! Love them, love ON them. Show them the love of Jesus. They truly need it. Be wise and not arrogant. Don’t be all puffed up yourself! I’ve had a handful of Facebook friends laughing and taunting these teachers and sharing memes full of images and words that make fun. When I see that I think of the pharisees. Don’t be one! If you have been, please reconsider your actions and repent and be loving from now onward.
Be an ambassador for Jesus. Represent Him well because the world is watching! The Bible tells us that they will know we are Christians by their love for one another. Are they seeing love from you towards these watchers? Think about it!
Please listen to the first part of Pastor J.D. about the September 23rd rapture watching. Thank you for your kindness, pastor J.D. So many believers are being so cruel to those who honestly thought it would happen. Be kind to each other, everyone!
(no new videos that I could find this week, but I really encourage you to follow his blog posts HERE and HERE).
Joel is very intelligent and up to date on current events involving Israel (where he and his family now live), the Middle East, Russia, and others. I own every book he’s written and have learned a great deal from him. You can find his books HERE, which I highly recommend!
Joel has a new book coming out in March called The Kremlin Conspiracy I’ve already pre-ordered on Amazon ? Check it out! –>
