What is Joel’s Army?


Jackie Alnor shared the link to this excellent video/expose at FaceBook. Watching it all in one sitting may not be possible, but check it out. Perhaps, if interested, you may want to watch it in segments. So, what is Joel’s Army?

  1. Well, I thank the Lord that I have the time to sit down and watch this video from start to the end.

    Obviously they are amiss and go beyond the Truth stepping outside the boundaries of Christ’s doctrines established by the Holy Spirit through the Scripture.

    There are just three Scriptural references I would leave in here after watching this video.

    One,

    Dan 12:1 “At that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time. But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone whose name shall be found written in the book.
    Dan 12:2 And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
    Dan 12:3 And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.
    Dan 12:4 But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”

    Consider in those Words a couple of obvious realities. One, “Michael” is the great prince who has charge of His people. This personality, Michael, is an Angel not a human, and apparently he has the ability to read in the “Book” the names of those who are to be delivered in this tumultuous time from the others whose name is not. Further, also at this period in history it is those who are wise who shall shine like the brightness of the sky turning many to Christ, Who is Our Righteousness.

    Two,

    Mat 13:28 He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ So the servants said to him, ‘Then do you want us to go and gather them?’
    Mat 13:29 But he said, ‘No, lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them.
    Mat 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.'”

    Mat 13:36 Then he left the crowds and went into the house. And his disciples came to him, saying, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the field.”

    Mat 13:40 Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the close of the age.
    Mat 13:41 The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers,
    Mat 13:42 and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
    Mat 13:43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.

    In this “companion” parable, a companion to the Daniel scriptures above it, Jesus makes clear “who” the army is that is doing the damage. It’s the Elect Angels and interestingly, Jesus instructs these Angels to “leave” the weeds alone until the end of time letting them grow up together with the Saints. This Scriptural witness stands in stark contrast to what is being taught and implied in the video.

    Three,

    2Jn 1:6 And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it.
    2Jn 1:7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Such a one is the deceiver and the antichrist.
    2Jn 1:8 Watch yourselves, so that you may not lose what we have worked for, but may win a full reward.
    2Jn 1:9 Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son.

    The part of these verses that I want to highlight is verse 9. It seems apparent to me after watching this video that these folks go ahead of Christ’s teaching and stir up trouble for themselves and sadly, for unsuspecting ignorant Saints as yet trained to discern between good and evil.

    At the end of the day, Christ is still on His Throne having died already for His people, every one of them knowing everyone of them by Name as Michael, the great prince, the Elect Angel with all the servant Angels of God do!

    I think it would be better that we struggle to enter into the Sabbath Rest and rest from our own works as this Word teaches us from the Book of Hebrews:

    Heb 4:8 For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken of another day later on.
    Heb 4:9 So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God,
    Heb 4:10 for whoever has entered God’s rest has also rested from his works as God did from his.
    Heb 4:11 Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience.

  2. Not accepting this teaching about God’s northern army (North America perhaps – I personally believe it could be – the whole ‘Toronto Blessing’ deception, false deliverance ministry, and word of faith movement) being God’s people, inpart led to me being expelled from a fellowship fifteen years ago. To me, it was clearly not God’s people that made up ‘Joel’s army’ as it has become quite wrongly named, regardless of whether Gwen Shaw (who requires people to take 33 vows to join her group – Lord Jesus says do NOT vow) says it is.
    Some points of interest:
    The book of Joel, and the gradual taking away of what I believe to be God’s Word, and with it, His blessing, and the help, hope, and joy we find within His Word, and of course, when it comes to the new Testament – Savation – for what we do not know, cannot save us – faith comes by hearing (as does deception also), and it maybe significant I think, that in Joel, it is the “new wine” that is cut off, but it makes sense that it must be the new wine, for the time of these events, is within the New Testamant. This removal of God’s Word, if that is what it is, and I sincerely believe it is, can be compared to MATTHEW 13, as can the destruction of the northern army, see MATT 13 v 37 – 43.
    As for the ‘Toronto ‘Blessing,’ I sincerely belive it to be the “powerful deception” of 2 THESSALONIANS 2, a test of our love and sincerity towards God, and can be likened to DEUTERONOMY 13.
    Also, the manifestations of the ‘Toronto Blessing,’ which I took part in for five years; the manifestations as they are called, are nothing more that temptations, and work in exactly the same way as any other temptation, they are acts we all know how to perform, there is nothing miraculous about them, spiritual yes, miraculous, no! They are just temptations that satan persuades people to put into actions.
    The GOD GIVEN GIFT of tongues is miraculous, and a wonderful GIFT of encouragement, and witness, from God, to ourselves – ACTS 10 v 44 – 48. see also 1 CORINTHIANS 13 v 5 – 6. 1 JOHN 4 v 13. LUKE 12 v 49 – 53. JOHN 14 v 15 – 20. ACTS 1 v 4 – 8. ACTS 2 all. MATTHEW 3 all. JOHN 3 all.
    The GIFT of tongues is wonderful! But the GIFT (miracle) of tongues, must NEVER be taken as evidence of a continued love for, and obedience to God, only our doctrine, behaviour, beliefs, and opinions are to be taken as evidence of a continued love and obedience towards God.
    “Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord,’ ……………and I will declare to them, ‘I never Knew you…..” KNOW “If we do not love, we do not KNOW God, for God is love.”
    “Love God with all of your heart, and love your neighbour as you love yourself.”
    “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.”
    The God given GIFT of tongues,is given as a result of obedience to be baptized (we can still later turn away from God, and into deception), the manifestations of the ‘Toronto Blessing,’ take place for no given Scripural reason at all, and are not fortold by Scipture, as any kind of blessing, or encouraging event. The fact that so much doctrinal error, and wrong behaviour, accompanies the ‘Toronto Blessing,’ should I think provoke us to ask ourselves the question – how can God show His approval of our error, by sending a ‘blessing.’ God will never encourage our error! He will never share in our sins, or encourage us to continue in them!

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby

I Was a Teenage Dispensationalist

It's the end (of the end) of the world as we know it...
