When You See THIS

     Last month (January) we all experienced an "uncovering" of Bible Prophecy that I know that I am still "chewing on" and absorbing!  There was just SO MUCH THE LORD gave us as The Body Of Christ!  If you have not read January 2015's Monthly Teaching Letter, please pick it up or go to our WebPage and read it.  If you did read it, join me in reading it again!  There is so much The Master told us, it is alot to "digest" in one "sit down."   Again, no one knows the day or hour of the Rapture, but we are to know the Seasons or Times that we are living in! (That's why Jesus, Himself told us in great lengths and details what would be happening and what it would look like in the Earth in These Lasts Days!)  He wanted us to be able to know and realize the Season that we were in and to be ready!

      This month we are going to dissect many verses in The Bible within one Chapter.  The Holy Spirit has led me to write to you about Joel Chapter 2.  And while reading and praying over this Chapter, much has been pointed out to me.  Yet, before we go straight to Joel, let's go over something that we have went over and over through the Monthly Teaching Letters here at JCM.  For, ONE CANNOT TRULY KNOW WHAT JOEL CHAPTER 2 IS TELLING US FOR THESE LAST DAYS UNLESS YOU KNOW THIS ONE THING!  And that is who are "The Locusts" in Joel 2?

      As many of you know The Lord spoke to me a Message for His Church in 2011 that was, "The Locusts Are Coming!"  And after many months of research I found out that "The Locusts" were not a WHAT but A WHO!  Very briefly, this is WHO THE LOCUSTS ARE.
WHO Are The Locusts of
 JOEL 2?

     Just to begin as to Who "The Locusts" are, they are the People and the descendants of Ishmael.  Ishmael was the son of Hagar, the handmaiden of Sarah (Abraham's Wife) who Abraham had a child by. (Abraham and Sarah were told that they would have a baby by God, but they chose to not wait and Abraham slept with Hagar and she became pregnant with Ishmael.)  Ishmael is recognized as an important prophet and patriarch of the religion of Islam.  Ishmael is recognized by Muslims as the ancestor of several prominent Arab tribes and the Muslims see Ishmael as being the Forefather of Muhammad, their Muslim prophet. 
*  To continue in Who God is speaking of when He is foretelling us about "The Locusts" that will rise, we see in the Word of God that God tells us in Judges 7:12 (ESV) that, "And the Midianites and the Amalekites and all the people of the East lay along the valley like locusts in abundance, and their camels were without number, as the sand that is on the seashore in abundance."
*  The Midianites come from Abraham's other wife, whose name was Keturah, that he took after Sarah died.  Keturah and Abraham had six sons, Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak and Shuah.  The Midianites came from this son, Midian.

*  The Amalekites are decendants of Esau, the twin of Jacob, who later was named Israel!  (Esau and Jacob-Israel were the twins of Isaac, Abraham's son.)  Amalek is a son of Esau's first-born son Eliphaz, from where the Amalekites come from.

The Midianites and the Amalekites and "all the people of the East" are like Locusts The Bible says!  The people of the East, are just that, the people who are from the Eastern part of the World.  We, the People of The West know this part of the World to be, "The Middle East."

     Quite simply, "The Locusts" are the People of Islam.  (ISIS, ISIL,   Al-Qaeda, Hamas, all People following the Muslim religion . . . these are the People that God calls in The Bible, "The Locusts."
The Locust's Are Swarming!
     The Bible speaks many, many times prophetically that there is a People that will rise and God calls them, "Locusts."  The Bible talks about these "Locusts" that will rise in The Last Days in Joel and even in The Book of Revelation. “Then out of the smoke locusts came forth on the earth, and such power was granted them as the power the earth's scorpions have. . . . 7 The locusts resembled horses equipped for battle. On their heads was something like golden crowns. Their faces resembled the faces of people." (Revelation 9:3,7 (AMP)) The People or "The Locusts" and ways of Islam will be greatly used by the Anti-Christ during his “rulership.”  “Great Power” will be given to them by the devil through the Anti-Christ. This army of Locust, the People of Islam will become the ones to be used to enforce, destroy and control all in the Earth.
To Understand!
     This Islam religion believes and teaches that through uprisings, chaos and revolutions their messiah, which they call the Imam Mahdi - "The Guided One" will arise to power and will lead the World to become Muslim.  The Islam religion also believes that the Mahdi or their messiah will have a Chief Lieutenant with him and he will enforce the will of the Mahdi.  The Islam people believe that this Chief Lieutenant that will serve the Mahdi or the Islam messiah will be named the Prophet Jesus or what the name will call him is "Isa!"
      The People God calls, "The Locusts" will be deceived yet will believe this "Prophet Jesus" that will serve with the Mahdi or the Islam messiah which they call, "Isa" is OUR Jesus of Nazareth!  Again, this one called, "Isa" will lie and say that he is God's Son, Jesus, The Christ that died for us and the people will believe him!
     This “False Prophet” that will be known to the Islam believers as the Prophet Jesus or “Isa,” will tell the people that (1) he was born of a virgin named Mary.  (2) He did walk on the Earth and did do many miracles with Allah’s help when he was on the Earth many years ago.  (3) This Islam False Prophet they call “Isa” will proclaim that he is a prophet, (4) but he will proclaim that he is not the son of God! (Remember, For Allah (Islam’s God) does not have children.)   This “False Prophet,” or “Isa” (the Islam Prophet they will call “Jesus”), (5) will state that he did not die on a cross and that he had an imposter take his place and he watched it all happen.  (6) That he wished he had never began Christianity and (7) that he has been with Allah and he has been sent back to Earth to tell everyone the truth and (8) and that truth is that Muslim is the true religion! The Prophet Jesus will also be the one to enforce and carry out the Mahdi’s laws, which is total Islamic Shariah Law (the religious law of Islam.) The Mahdi will be the Anti-Christ and the Islam Prophet Jesus or “Isa” will be the False Prophet that our Bible has told us about! 
     We are witnessing at the time of the writing of this Teaching Letter many Uprisings in many different forms and places by the Islam People.  Just some of the ruthless activity of this People God calls, "The Locusts" are taking people hostage, beheading individuals, brutally killing children, kidnapping girls, raping young boys, young girls and men and women in the public and in private, group rapings, mutilization of body parts (cutting off hands, feet and mutilating sexual organs) of people, crucifying people, ransacking and destroying Villages, destroying homes and Churches, stealing all of Towns and Villages belongings, giving people the choice to convert to Islam or pay them a Tax or be killed and on a huge scale taking over Cities, Providences, Towns, Governments and Leaders.  We are witnessing so much “activity” from "The Locusts" all over the World!  This is a Great Sign for us of the Timing of Biblical History that we are living in.  The Rapture of The Church is very near, for even the rise of "The Locusts" is obvious.  And The People God calls "The Locusts" will pay a leading role in the Anti-Christ’s rule.

     Again, as of the writing of this Teaching Letter, Islamic Terrorists have taken over the President and Government of Yemen (which has no Leader now).  Iran is now in control of four (4) Arab Capitals, (Baghdad, Damascus, Beirut and now Sana'a).  Islamists are shooting and stabbing people in stores, in the streets and at places that are pre-planned all over the World.  ISIS has control of 1/3 of Iraq and 1/3 of Syria.  Saudia Arabia's President has died and that Nation is changing.  And Israel has spotted on surveillance satellite that Iran has another Missile that has the capabilities to go further than what anyone knew ofMost of the East is being taken over by Hamas,      Al-Queda, ISIS and many other Sects . . . all of them fighting to be the Leader, ALL OF THEM ISLAM!  The Lord specifically told us that, "The Locust Are Coming!" in 2011 and now we are seeing this Word from Him manifest in a mighty way!  In fact, one could really say that, The Locust have now arrived and are truly swarming And the Locusts and their power will grow and in accordance to Revelation Chapter 9 for, power is granted to them.
Joel Explains It
Even More
     The Lord begins in the Book of Joel, Chapter One by giving us a Message about this People, God again calls, "The Locusts."  "The word of the Lord that came to Joel the son of Pethuel. 2 Hear this, you aged men, and give ear, all you inhabitants of the land! Has such a thing as this occurred in your days or even in the days of your fathers? 3 Tell your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation. 4 What the crawling locust left, the swarming locust has eaten; and what the swarming locust left, the hopping locust has eaten; and what the hopping locust left, the stripping locust has eaten. . . ."For a [heathen and hostile] NATION [of locusts, [illustrative of a human foe] has invaded My land, mighty and without number; its teeth are the teeth of a lion, and it has the jaw teeth of a lioness. 7 It has laid waste My vine [symbol of God's people] and barked and broken My fig tree; it has made them completely bare and thrown them down; their branches are made white.” Joel 1:1-4,6-7 (AMP).
      Remember Beloved of God, the “vine” is us, Christians grafted into Jesus and the “fig tree” is always the symbol of Israel.  And God said "The Locusts" were coming after and invading “My vine [symbol of God’s people]” and “My fig tree;”  To put it bluntly, "The Locusts" (the People of Ishmael, which are the People of Islam or Muslim) will and do have the MISSION to “lay waste” the Christians (the Vine) and Israel (The Fig Tree.)  "The Locusts" will also destroy anyone who is not a “believer” in Muslim and their brutal ways in the future.  And we see very clearly in Joel Chapter One, that God is identifying that these People He calls "Locusts" are to be talked about.  In fact, God says to us, "Hear this, you aged men, and give ear, all you inhabitants of the land! Has such a thing as this occurred in your days or even in the days of your fathers? 3 Tell your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation. (Joel 1:2-3)  God is communicating to us LISTEN!  LISTEN YOUNG AND OLD!  NO SUCH THINGS HAS EVER OCCURRED LIKE THIS!  TELL YOUR CHILDREN AND HAVE THEM TO TELL WHAT "THE LOCUSTS" HAS DONE AND NOW IN THESE LAST DAYS . . . WHAT THEY WILL DO!  YOU MUST NOT FORGET WHAT THEY HAVE DONE, OR YOU WILL NOT RECOGNIZE THEM AND WHO THEY ARE RIGHT NOW IN OUR DAYS, THESE LAST DAYS WE'RE IN CHURCH! 
It's Time In History To
 Sound The Alarm!
     I have, by The Grace of God done many, many hours of studying and researching.  And it is my honor and assignment to do so.  As I am studying, one thing that aids me so much is looking at various Translations of The Bible to receive comprehension and a complete understanding of what I am reading.  What we are going to do is look at Joel Chapter Two (2) and see what The Holy Spirit is telling us IN CONTINUANCE of what He is saying from Chapter One (1).  We will look at these various verses in different Translations as we go.  Remember, in Joel Chapter One we have been told that there are a People called "Locusts" that God says to tell everyone, your children, your elders and everyone about!   And these "Locusts" are A NATION OF LOCUSTS!  (Let us not forget we are seeing the forming of ISIS and ISIL (The Islamic State or Nation!)  "For a [heathen and hostile] NATION [of locusts, [illustrative of a human foe] . . . "
      In Joel 2:1 (NLT) it reads, "Sound the trumpet in Jerusalem!  Raise the alarm on my holy mountain!  Let everyone tremble in fear because the day of the Lord is upon us." Joel 2:2 (AMP), "A day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and of thick mists and darkness, like the morning dawn spread upon the mountains; so there comes a [heathen, hostile] PEOPLE numerous and mighty, the like of which has never been before and shall not be again even to the years of many generations."  (As you can see, Joel 2:2 is referring back to Joel 1:2-4,6 (see above)).  (Joel continues this prophecy about these "heathen, hostile people" that will become and display themselves in a way and AT A LEVEL that has never been!  And this is to take place, "because the day of the Lord is upon us." )
     In Joel 2:3 (AMP) we see, "A fire devours before them, and behind them a flame burns; the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yes, and none has escaped [the ravages of the devouring hordes]."  (Here we see more details that describe the Islam terrorists.  The Towns, Villages, Cities, Governments and parts of Nations that they come into are destroyed. The homes, Churches and buildings of that place is destroyed in their path.)
    Joel 2:4 (AMP), "Their appearance is like the appearance of horses, and like war horses and horsemen, so do they run."  (Why Verse 4 is so important to us to look at is that "The Locusts" are also described in The Book of Revelation as THE SAME AS WE SEE HERE IN JOEL).   "The locusts resembled horses equipped for battle.  On their heads was something like golden crowns.  Their faces resembled the faces of people." (Revelation 9:7 (AMP)).  (The People of "The Locusts" in Joel are the same as "The Locusts" in The Book of Revelation!  And Revelation is written to us for The Last Days.)

     Joel 2:5 (NLT)) "Look at them as they leap along the mountaintops.  Listen to the noise they make - like the rumbling of chariots, like the roar of fire sweeping across a field of stubble, or like a mighty army moving into battle.  (We can see and say that there is truly an "Army moving into battle"  within "The Locusts" People all over the World!  They are continually forming this Army!) 

     Joel 2:6-9 (NLT)) "Fear grips all the people; every face grows pale with terror. 7 The attackers march like warriors and scale city walls like soldiers.  Straight forward they march, never breaking rank. 8 They never jostle each other; each moves in exactly the right position. They break through defenses without missing a step. 9 They swarm over the city and run along its walls. They enter all the houses, climbing like thieves through the windows."  (Now that we have identified WHO "The Locusts" are, we can see so clearly by what we see on a daily basis the People of Islam and their actions of destruction manifest.  All the people that they come upon have to face either torture, kidnapping, stealing of their property, kidnapping of themselves or family members and terrorizing while they "swarm over" their homes and their cities. "The Locusts" People have developed themselves into "warriors" and "soldiers" all pledging
allegiance to the cause to control, literally the World.)  This Scripture (Joel 2:6-9) is manifesting before our eyes, Church!)

     Then we see in Joel some good news!  The LORD says HE will bring His Army into the situation at an appointed time! Hallelujah!  And The Lord tells us in Joel 2:25 (AMP)), "And I will restore or replace for you the years that the locust has eaten—the hopping locust, the stripping locust, and the crawling locust, My great army which I sent among you".

      Now, THE TIMING OF ALL OF THIS IS SO IMPORTANT!  Because we have seen that the People God calls "The Locusts" that we have seen in Joel and in Revelation are TO RISE UP AT A SPECIFIC TIME IN HISTORY!  AND THAT SPECIFIC TIME IS "BEFORE THAT GREAT AND TERRIBLE DAY OF THE LORD ARRIVES!"  Joel 2:31-32 (NLT) shouts to us, "THE SUN WILL BECOME DARK, AND THE MOON WILL TURN BLOOD RED BEFORE THAT GREAT AND TERRIBLE DAY OF THE LORD ARRIVES. 32 But everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved, for some on Mount Zion in Jerusalem will escape, just as the Lord has said. These will be among the survivors whom the Lord has called."

    WHEN YOU SEE THE PEOPLE OF "THE LOCUST" RISING AND DOING ALL THAT WE HAVE SEEN IN THE BIBLE AND ON TV RIGHT NOW IN HISTORY . . . AND THE SUN TURNING TO DARK AND THE MOON TURNING BLOOD RED . . . . KNOW CHURCH IT IS TIME FOR THE LORD TO ARRIVEThe Word of God is VERY CLEAR at WHAT will be happening and WHO will be on display for the Earth to see!  The People of "The Locusts" have risen and are still rising.  We have already had two (2) Blood Moons last year in 2014 (14 April 2014 and 08 October 2014) and NASA has told us that there will be a Total Solar Eclipse ("the sun will become dark,") on 20 March 2015!  And NASA has predicted two (2) more Blood Moons ("the moon will turn blood red") this year on 04 April 2015 (Passover) and 28 September 2015 (Feast of Tabernacles.)  All Of These Are "BEFORE THAT GREAT AND TERRIBLE DAY OF THE LORD ARRIVES!"

     All THE QUESTIONS that the World is looking for and asking about, “Why is all of this happening with Islam?” . . . The Answers are right in front of our eyes!  It is Bible Prophecy Being Fulfilled!  Yet, what is so crucial is that what we are witnessing was told to us would happen BEFORE THE LORD ARRIVES!  It is TIME to throw out your NETS and bring in THE PEOPLE INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD!  And if you are not where you need to be with The Lord, then this is your time and this is your day of salvation!  If you have walked away from God and are not fully committed or fully surrendered to Him or if you have never turned your
life over to Him, then The Bible says, "that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."  This means that you will be “Born Again” into The Kingdom of God.  So, your job is to believe with all that's inside of you and confess with your mouth.  Just say these words to God and believe them with all your heart.

"Jesus I come before You right now and I know that I have sinned against You and your Ways. I ask You, Jesus to forgive me of all the wrong I've done and come into my life and save me. I renounce my past and the sin of it.  I'm finished with it!  Please do something with my life.  I make You, Jesus The Lord of my life! Please fill me with Your Holy Spirit and Power in Jesus Name!  I believe I receive!  I am Born Again and a Child of The Most High! Amen!"
