Where are the Saints in the End Times – Joel 2 by Pastor Don Moore
Bible study taught Friday July 29, 2011
With the Coming of the Lord, where are the saints?
God picked the smallest tribe and blessed them and they have remained in existence to this day.
Everyone under covenant with God is protected by God. satan tried to destroy the line that led to the birth of Jesus and in this day and age, the devil is trying to destroy the Jews for if there are no Jews then the Messiah will not come again –
Most Christians forget that Jesus was a Jew. The Jews were looking for the Jewish Messiah and Jesus did not come the way they expected – they wanted a conquering King and the first time He came, the Messiah came as a suffering servant. His second coming will be as a conquering King.
Just as the prophecies stated, the nation of Israel is surrounded by enemies, and their enemies are getting more and more aggressive. The main enemy, satan, is trying to wipe out the Jews, but the Lord has promised that a remnant will remain. If satan could wipe out the Jews, then there would be no Jews on earth to say, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord,” as the prophecy states the Jews will do.
God does not lie, so His Word will come true, and therefore there must remain Jews on the earth to fulfill this prophecy.
Mount Zion is going to split, an earthquake will cause it to split in half. Geologists have shown that there is a fault line running through this mountain and there is also a tunnel running under it.
The evil of satan will not manifest until there is world domination, the new world order.
We took a glance at the one dollar bill and saw the pyramid with the all-seeing eye of osirus, baal. The pyramid represents the world and when the all-seeing eye rests upon the world then the one world government of Revelation 13 will emerge.
Over the pyramid are the words:annuit coeptis – which has to do with Jupiter, he (satan, jupiter) agrees with the cause which has started, the secret plan to take over America and the world.
Novus Ordo Seclorum – the new order of the ages is a code name for the new world order.
Notice that the Roman numerals are for 1776 but May first is the birth date of the illuminati, not July 4 which is our Independence Day.
We spent a bit of time talking about how the Federal Reserve is not federal and not part of our government. Its manipulation of money is part of what is making the new world order more feasible. The United Nations is also pushing for more of a one world government. Those in power in our government are also in line with this premise.
Joel 2:1 Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; for the day of the LORD is coming, for it is at hand:
The Day of the Lord when God wrecks vengeance on the earth for what people did to Jesus, to those who rejected the salvation Jesus died to provide for us.
Joel 2:2 A day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, like the morning clouds spread over the mountains. A people come, great and strong, the like of whom has never been; nor will there ever be any such after them, even for many successive generations.
The people are going to come like we have never seen again, even after a series of generations. This is a near prophecy of the destruction of Israel, but also an end time prophecy with an enemy that is going to come to destroy Israel
Joel 2:3 A fire devours before them, and behind them a flame burns; the land is like the Garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; surely nothing shall escape them.
This evokes memories of Moses in the wilderness with the fire that was before them to lead, but now the fire devours leaving desolation behind it.
Joel 2:4-6 Their appearance is like the appearance of horses; and like swift steeds, so they run. With a noise like chariots over mountaintops they leap, like the noise of a flaming fire that devours the stubble, like a strong people set in battle array. Before them the people writhe in pain; all faces are drained of color.
This will be the fate of those left on the earth in the end days, the people who are not the Bride of Christ, and they will suffer – believers and nonbelievers, for the tribulation will be tremendous.
Joel 2:7-8 They run like mighty men, they climb the wall like men of war; every one marches in formation, and they do not break ranks. They do not push one another; every one marches in his own column. Though they lunge between the weapons, they are not cut down.
This is the army of the Lord which will not break ranks, these are obedient people who are disciplined. The war goes on, and they obey the orders of the Lord.
Joel 2:9 They run to and fro in the city, they run on the wall; they climb into the houses, they enter at the windows like a thief.
They enter all parts of the city like a thief.
Joel 2:10-11 The earth quakes before them, the heavens tremble; the sun and moon grow dark, and the stars diminish their brightness. The LORD gives voice before His army, for His camp is very great; for strong is the One who executes His word. For the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; who can endure it?
This is the Lord’s army in the last days after the rapture.
Joel 2:12-13 “Now, therefore,” says the LORD, “turn to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.” So rend your heart, and not your garments; return to the LORD your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness; and He relents from doing harm.
God wants the people to repent, to return to the Lord prior to Armageddon.
Ezekiel 38 speaks of the nations that seek to surround and destroy Israel. Five years ago the muslim nation was not as strong as it is today. Today Israel is surrounded by people seeking to destroy Israel.
