IRANIAN REGIME’S VIDEO SAYS, THEIR MESSIAH IS ABOUT TO APPEAR

Iranian Regime's Video Says, Their Islamic Messiah (The Mahdi) Is About To Appear.

Dear Joshua Family Subscribers:

Today, I wanted to share with you some of the latest developments in the Middle East along with a link to a video, which I believe every Christian and Jewish person needs to see. The propaganda soon to be released by the Iranian regime, depicts the current revolutions and chaos taking place in the Middle East and Northern Africa as positive evidence that, their messiah, (the Mahdi) who will be their Twelfth Imam, is right on the verge of appearing on the world scene.

This is the one, who supposedly would lead Islam and it's armies in the end-time to defeat Israel, America, and other non-Muslim countries, and to bring peace (with the sword), to the rest of the world under the domination of Islam.

Note: The radical fundamentalist Islamic idea of peace is to conquer and annihilate the Jews, Christians, and all other non-Muslims who will not submit to Islam.

Recently, Erick Stakelbeck, a reporter for CBN, released an article and included video footage, of the Iranian regime's video production on the Middle East and North African revolutions, which claims those chaotic events go right along with certain Islamic Prophecies, and will accelerate the soon return of their Messiah, the Mahdi. To read the recent CBN article and to watch the video footage, Go Here: Video-Says-Mahdi-is-Near

The name of the Iranian regime's video is entitled, The Coming is Near. They also believe that Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadenijad, will overtake Jerusalem before their Mahdi appears on the scene. Although this is obviously a propaganda video to be distributed to all Middle-East Arab countries by the Iranian regime, it strongly indicates that they are currently in a planning-to-strike war mode with the intent of conquering Jerusalem, and to hasten their (Twelfth Imam) Mahdi's soon appearance.

However, the God of Israel is watching over the affairs of His Chosen people and His Promised land, allowing only that which will bring forth the fulfillment of Prophecy for the End times. Israel will likely hit Iran first as a preemptive strike on Iran's nuclear facilities, with her superior defense technology, which is some of the most advanced in the world today.

To read more on Iranian Leaders plans, and to watch the regime's video-full version (translated into English) on Reza Kahlili's website (former member of Iran's Revolutionary Guard), Go Here: Iran Leaders

Watch this most informative video, as Joel Richardson compares the similarities of the Islamic Mahdi to the Anti-Christ on Glenn Beck's Show. This was very informative--Watch here: Islamic Mahdi -on GB

Here is yet, another video of Joel Richardson on Sid Roth's program. A somewhat different view on End time prophecy, Mystery Babylon and the Beast nations. Watch as the mysteries unfold from the books of Daniel and Revelation. Will Islam play a major role during the Great Tribulation? Will the Anti-Christ be a muslim messiah? Watch this amazing, eye-opening video on what may take place in the very near future. Joel Richardson on It's Supernatural .

PSALMS 83 WAR, GOG AND MAGOG INVASION, THE FINAL BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON

Joshua Apostolic Prophetic Network

THE THREE WARS: PSALMS 83 WAR, GOG AND MAGOG INVASION

AND THE FINAL BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON

~ L.D. Oxford

In end time Bible prophecy, there seems to be a clear indication that the countries surrounding Israel will be dealt with first. with the use of weapons of mass destruction. These nations include those common-border arab countries surrounding Israel, which is also close to the same prophetic time-table when Damascus, Syria will be destroyed along with those other surrounding parts of arab countries, that will be left uninhabited. Not long after this, Israel will have expanded, secured her borders, and will live in relative peace and security for a season, before the the actual invasion of Gog and Magog occurs.

Therefore, this is clear enough evidence, that Iran will not succeed in destroying Israel as they claimed they would do recently. They may threaten and make attempts, but their ultimate plans for the annihilation of Israel will somehow backfire, due to the timely protection of the God of Israel.

When The Gog and Magog Invasion finally does take place, there shall be horrific events that will take place in Israel, such as a devastating earthquake, including fire and brimstone falling from the skies upon these enemies of Israel, [Gog and Magog, Persia (Iran), with the other muslim-allied countries.]

They shall be defeated and destroyed on the mountains of Israel and on the open field according to Ezekiel 39. And note, that this War is not the final Battle of Armageddon, but appears to take place some time before the abomination of desolation and Armageddon according to the order of end time events. Notice what happens here in Ezekiel 39:1-6 (read the entire chapter)

“Son of man, prophesy against Gog and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am against you, Gog, chief prince of Meshek and Tubal. 2 I will turn you around and drag you along. I will bring you from the far north and send you against the mountains of Israel.

3 Then I will strike your bow from your left hand and make your arrows drop from your right hand. 4 On the mountains of Israel you will fall, you and all your troops and the nations with you. I will give you as food to all kinds of carrion birds and to the wild animals.

5 You will fall in the open field, for I have spoken, declares the Sovereign LORD. 6 I will send fire on Magog and on those who live in safety in the coastlands, and they will know that I am the LORD. - niv

Review: Sequence of the Three Main Wars:

1. First, Psalms 83 War: See Psalms 83: Israel will defeat those arab countries on it's common-borders.

Following videos mention the Prophetic Psalm 83 War [deals with immediate surrounding arab nations who trouble and despise Israel] Also see Isaiah 17 - A prophecy against Damascus.

Videos: Watch "War" parts 1-2 -- Shows Psalms 83 war which will lead up to the War of Gog and Magog

Video: War - Part 1 - Watch here

Video: War - Part 2 - Watch here

2. Gog and Magog Invasion: Read Ezekiel Chapters 38 -39 - Sets the stage for the horrific coming events of the Great tribulation -- with Russia, Iran [Persia], Libya, Ethiopia along with other muslim allied armies defeated on the mountains and on the open fields of Israel. This is not Armageddon at the end of the Great Tribulation. It will take seven months+ to bury the bodies, and seven years to burn the weapons from this war, to be used as fuel.

Note: There will also be other resistant battles between the Gog and Magog War, and those leading up to Armageddon found in the scriptures. Some have tried to prove that the Gog-Magog invasion and the Battle Armageddon, are one in the same. but it is just not true. All that one would need to do is to have a look at the nations involved and the geographical locations for each battle to know that there is a distinct difference.

According to some Bible prophecy scholars, Armageddon will come through a series of stages [a progression] leading up to the final Battle of Armageddon. To read more about those stages, I found one website that lays out more of an explanation, and with scripture references for this. Feel free to go there, to study more on this. On Armageddon

3. The Final Battle - Armageddon - on the plain of Megiddo - other names [the Plain of Esdraelon, Valley of Jezreel] Rev. 16:16 - The gathering of all the armies of the nations near the close of the Great Tribulation, followed by the return and appearing of Jesus Christ with the armies of Heaven, where He destroys all of these world armies. Many millions will die in this final battle.

Then, Rev 19:20 tells us, the Antichrist and the False Prophet will be thrown into the lake of fire.

Rev. 20:1-3, the devil will be thrown into the bottomless pit.

...and then, the Lord of Lords and King of Kings will set up His Millennial Kingdom to rule and reign for a thousand years upon the earth.

The Good News: Because Jesus Christ wins, we win too! - L.D.

THE DEAD FISH PHENOMENON, JAPAN EARTHQUAKE, PROPHECY UPDATE


Joshua Apostolic Prophetic Network

THE DEAD FISH PHENOMENON, JAPAN EARTHQUAKE, AND PROPHECY UPDATE

Dear Joshua Family Subscribers:

I remembered back a few days before the Japan Earthquake took place, another strange event happened, where millions of fish were found dead that washed into the King Harbor Marina of Redondo Beach coast, in Los Angeles County, California. They were reported to be sardines and anchovies.

Some believed that it could have been either strong winds, or suffocation from lack of oxygen causing the fish to die. And still others had no idea, as to how they got there. There were so many of these fish, that it made it very difficult for the boats to get out, and back into the harbor.

It was only a few days after the dead fish phenomenon, that the devastating Japan Earthquake and Tsunami took place which lead me to wonder, if the fish were somehow disturbed, or driven by some type of underwater volcanic or seismic activity, since California is also on the Pacific Ring of Fire. Seems more likely to fit the scenario of what may have very well caused this.

Yesterday, I received yet, several other urgent prayer alerts from some of our friends in other ministries, asking us to pray and to intercede for the west coast of America. [especially for California and the Northwest coast.] And then, there are others, who have also been concerned about the New Madrid fault line.

It has been reported, that about every 18 months the fault releases a shock of 4.0 or more, which can cause local damage. 5.0 or greater happens about once every 10 years, which can do increased damage, and can be felt in surrounding states.

Late last night, I found a new Prophecy Update written by Perry Stone, which had additional interesting insight, that I would like to share with you here today. I really liked what Perry had to say in his update, and especially what He had to say about David Wilkerson being a true prophet, and about his prophecies from the 1970s still unfolding over the years.

Then, he went on to address self-acclaimed prophets and seers who usually only have about a 50% accuracy rate, which is ridiculously low. Personally, I would not receive a prophetic word from someone unless they had a high and proven track record of prophetic accuracy.

It seems that almost every time there is a disaster, volcanic eruption, earthquake, or hurricane, there are 50-100 different people claiming to be prophets, come out of the woodwork to give their take [usually with conflicting words] on how they prophesied it before it happened [and on how accurate they were], but unfortunately did not make it clear to the public 'until after' the event took place.

Many of those prophecies have proven to be either untrue or to have a very low level of accuracy. The very same thing happened with the Hurricane Katrina Words in August of 2005, that were all over the internet. Only a very few had any high level of accuracy.

But, my stance is this: If it was really God who said it would happen a certain way, then He will do it. And, if He does genuinely tell them something, then He should be the only one receiving the credit, honor, and glory for it anyway.

In our day, there seems to be an excessive amount of pride, showmanship, and selfish ambition in much of today's prophetic movement. What I have found is that the true prophets, are not hitting and missing it most of the time, like what we see today in many of the more popular prophetic ministries of today.

From what I have seen and read over the past decade and have also documented -- There are very few prophecies from some of the more popular ministries that ever do come to actual fulfillment. And from that evidence, I believe that I can safely say, that there are a lot of people in prophetic ministry out there, who are probably not really hearing anything significant from God. Now, don't get me wrong, because there are some out there ... but what I am saying here, is that they are few and far between.

On the other hand, many are usually prophesying peace, prosperity, wealth transference and money, money, money, or either prophetically flattering their favorite friends on-stage, which is a sure sign that something is terribly wrong in a large portion of the prophetic movement.

The problem is, that a lot of people who are in it, just can't see it, and follow some of these ministries blindly into the ditch, which is a very dangerous place to be spiritually, indicating strong signs of delusion. But, there are some, who are truly hungry and seeking after the heart of God, who are beginning to see this though, and it doesn't make them more popular when they do! Yet, they are only a remnant of God's people.

If you have any of David Wilkerson's books, I would strongly suggest that you go back and read some of them, as his prophecies from the 70s continue to unfold. You can also find some of his writings and prophecies online. Just Google it! Note, that Wilkersons writings are not well-received by many of today's Emergent and Post-modern ministries, as they are for the most part, not considered relevant in today's more seeker-friendly environments.

Also, if you are interested in learning more on Bible Prophecy and Endtime events, check out Perry Stones website, his teachings, and prophecy updates. You can also find more of his messages in the media section of his website, and with more of his videos on YouTube. He studies the scriptures from a Hebraic perspective, and you can learn a lot from him, as he really does his research!

The Strange Signs of the Dead Fish

~ Perry Stone

Resources: http://www.voe.org/

Several days ago, while watching Fox News, I saw an odd sight being reported from California. There were millions of small dead fish that had washed ashore in a marina just south of Los Angeles on March 7th. Experts said the fish may have died from a lack of oxygen due to algae, as there appeared to be no toxins in the water to cause the large number of deaths.

Prior to the earthquake in Japan, a fish called the oarfish, which has a long body and almost resembles a snake, suddenly began to wash ashore in Japan. Fisherman in Japan also began to catch it in their fishing nets. According to traditional Japanese lore, the fish rise to the surface and beach themselves to warn of an impending earthquake.

There are also scientific theories that bottom-dwelling fish may be susceptible to magnetic movements in seismic fault lines, and act in uncharacteristic ways in advance of an earthquake. In ancient times Japanese people believed that fish, particularly catfish, warned of coming earthquakes.

The old timers in America had many legends and traditions, and could monitor the activity of animals and nature to predict famines, long cold winters, or droughts in the summer. When the mountain men saw the squirrels finding their food early and over long periods of time, they knew the winter world be long and harsh.

They also noted that dogs will howl or bark moments before an earthquake, and animals will move away from water prior to a tsunami, as the elephants did in Sri Lanka prior to the tsunami.

One man (I didn’t get his name) on a major news channel has been tracking the strange events in nature over the years – such as dead fish appearing on the water. He said that he believes this has been an indicator of a major plate in the ocean or a fault line getting ready to give way. Many would mock his theory, but I believe God has set warnings in nature to let us know prior to the occurrence of tragic events.

Recently there has been a major quake in Chili, New Zealand, and now Japan. These regions are part of the famous “ring of fire” along the Pacific Rim, where the majority of the world’s volcanoes exist. If the pattern continues, the next major quake could happen in the United States, perhaps the West Coast or the area of the New Madrid fault line. I believe it is time to pray!

I was sharing with the people at the prophetic summit that, in the book he wrote in the 1970s, David Wilkerson saw a vision of a major quake coming to America. He wrote that he felt it would follow an earthquake in Japan. I have always believed that David Wilkerson is a true prophet from the Lord. He saw events in the 1970s that have continually happened and are still occurring – including conflict with the labor unions.

I do not pay attention to self-acclaimed prophets who give out words and miss their predictions half the time. My dad always said, “The REAL Holy Ghost never misses it, and if God didn’t say it, keep your mouth shut!”

However, I will pay attention to those who fast, pray and live right, but not those self-anointed seers who spend their free time getting drunk and then claiming they heard from God, when things they speak seldom happen. Even a psychic can hit it 50% of the time, and any man who misses it 50% of the time is no more anointed that a secular psychic.

Wilkerson is a true prophet of God. Pay attention and prepare. Most of all, pray about what is currently happening and what is on the horizon for America and the rest of the world. Despite the many negative events, I am not afraid because I know how the story ends! - Perry Stone

PROTECTION FROM DECEPTION

Joshua Apostolic Prophetic Network

PROTECTION FROM DECEPTION

Dear Joshua Family Subscribers:

Tonight, I sensed from the Lord, the need to share with you the following important teaching by Derek Prince, that was published about 15 years ago, but is still, just as relevant for God's people today. Especially, during this most crucial time, where there has been such an increase of supernatural activity, and world-wide promotions of Sign and Wonders.

Some of this phenomena is of God's Spirit, while some is not, and in the Charismatic and Pentecostal movements, we all need to understand the difference of what truly is from God, and what may be from end time seducing, and deceptive spirits, so that we may guard our hearts from any potential delusion, or deception. From what I have observed and discerned personally, there is a mixture of both happening simultaneously in some of today's movements.

The title of this topic is Protection From Deception: On navigating through the Minefield of Signs and Wonders. So, basically, this is an in-depth teaching on how to discern manifestations of the Holy Spirit from other counterfeit occurences that are passed off as being genuine.

There is also, an excellent audio teaching on this. The entire three chapter book is available to read in text/or to listen to in audio at the following UK website DPM-UK. I strongly recommend that all of you please read and listen to this. It will answer most of the questions that you may have, and will bring clarity to many things that you need to know concerning this topic. I have provided a link below for you to go there directly.

I would love to know how this teaching helps you and impacts your life, so please feel free to leave your comments on the weblog here, to let me know, ok? Would love to hear from more of you, who haven't written in for a while. Bless you, and love you, Family of God! ~ L.D.

WARRIOR'S CALL TO PRAYER

Joshua Apostolic Prophetic Network

Home Central: www.joshua-ap.net/


*WARRIOR'S CALL TO PRAYER - L.D.

*RING OF FIRE LISTS FOR 2010 & 2011

***

Dear Joshua Family Subscribers:

This has been one of the most distressing and heartbreaking past few days of my life, as I have had a heart for Souls--for Asia since the 1980's. I spent a total of seven years of my life on Asian soil living, teaching, and winning Chinese, and other Asians to Christ as a part of my calling to Missionary Evangelism.

I had also, taken a number of trips to Japan and had visited some of the cities and the people there, quite a few times over the years, therefore, Asia is very close to my heart.

It was very difficult for me to even put this letter, and other info together today, due to a heavy and troubled heart for Japan. We also experienced a temporary power failure from the local power company here today, and I lost about 3 hours worth of work that I had typed up on the computer.

My Word document was not finished, so all of it was lost when the power went off, and I had to start from scratch all over again. So, today was not one of my better days, but I am happier and relieved now, to be able to pull it all back together, and to get these writings out to you, amongst other things that need to be posted.

If you can remember, I sent an article out to you last year on the Ring of Fire. Well, it is already getting a lot worse than what we perceived, or thought. Usually when the Lord speaks to me, it is not about date setting, but is more often about a season that we are entering into.

And, now that the season is here regarding the acceleration of happenings around the Pacific Ring of Fire, I could sense such an urgency, that the Lord is calling many of His people to commit to pray for Nation of Japan, and for the Japanese people.

Even, yesterday I was talking to the Lord about this, and I strongly sensed that this is only the beginning of what is soon to take place around the Ring of Fire, which surrounds the entire Pacific Basin like a massive horse-shoe.

And this activity is not going to stay only on the Asian side either. While the massive earthquake and Tsunami in Japan was taking place, other places were beginning to shake as well. It was reported, that two volcanos in the Far East of Russia, and another in Indonesia began to erupt.

Then, a huge volcanic eruption in southern Japan took place -- a very large eruption with Lightning bolts seen in the blast, and with wide flows of lava. Just like something you might see out of a science fiction movie! Very mind-boggling to watch! I have a few links of what has been taking place for you to see further below.

I just really sense in my heart, that the corporate Body of Christ needs to come closer together as family, and to begin to pour out our hearts in prayers and intercession to the Lord on the behalf of what is now taking place in Japan, and also, in some of the other places around the Ring of Fire, that have been experiencing extreme hardships.

I have observed over the past few years in America, what seems to be, way too much apathy, and lip service to God, without real heart commitment to the Lord, in the Body of Christ. It is very obvious and so easy to identify, even in some of the local churches.

So many have been in Churches for many years, just sitting in the pews, waiting for the next big thing to come to town, or waiting for someone new to bring them something sensational, that feeds their fleshly desires. Something to Wow, or to entertain them. It's so sad, and so grieves the Spirit of God.

And, Sometimes, it has been like pulling teeth to try to get christian believers to come together for a solemn assembly and some serious prayer these days. And, at least a hundred people who I know would say a big amen to that, because it is so true in our day! Amen???

And note, that I am not talking about saying repetitious prayers in a religious atmosphere, but I'm talking about focused heart-rending prayer and intercession, and doing some of it together as corporate groups in the Body.

What I see that we need to do now, is to begin to call people together into small groups, since it is so difficult to get those larger groups together. And each of us can begin to do this right where we live.

I just know in my heart, that those Japanese people would just love, and so appreciate to be covered with our prayers, and to receive reinforcement from God's people during this time, even if they do not understand the God who we serve. God will move mightily when we uphold them in our prayers.

Most often, it is during the worst times of hardship that God will perform the greatest miracles and transformation of lives, when His people would only commit themselves to pray and to intercede for others.

I am expecting much divine intervention and miracles for the people of Japan, as many of us would begin to pray fervently during this week, and as long as the Lord moves and directs us to do this.

I know from my own experience, that when I have gone through seasons of the greatest weakness, hurt, and distress in my life, that God would manifest Himself in miraculous ways. Even, when I felt like I just didn't have the strength to go on another day. And, I could always tell when people were praying for me, and knew that God was hearing all of those prayers and answering many of them.

So here I am, still alive and well today in 2011, when, I might otherwise have been totally wiped out from despair, and could have died from extreme grief and pain in some instances. But, He always rescued me during those times, and to this day, I have experienced so many miracles, that I could no longer count them from over the past 20 yrs. or more. God is so wonderfully Good! Praise you Jesus!

I am saying all of this prayerfully, so that God may begin to mobilize many of you out there to gather together in small groups to pray for those hurting people of Japan this week. They really need our love, prayers, and reinforcement during this time.

Below, I am including a few links of some of the other things that have happened before and after the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, just in case you hadn't heard about some of them.

These are all ring of fire disastrous shakings and eruptions that have taken place this year.

I have also included a short list of 2010 shakings and eruptions that took place last year for you to see. I thought that this would show and help you to better understand the intensity of what has taken place since 2010.

Also, remember to uphold us here in your prayers during this time, as well. I have several projects that the Lord has given me to work on over the past six months, and we are still short on the monthly funds to finish up what has already been started.

We have been in warfare here too, and need some back-up prayer and reinforcement from more of you prayer warriors. It would be so greatly appreciated. Please write in and let me know if you will be one of those, so that i will know for sure, who is actually praying. It would be a tremendous encouragement to know during this time. Thanks, L.D.
