Welcome to this Site of Encouragement!

What you will find in the pages on this site will amaze you, thrill you, and prepare you for the awesome global events coming in your lifetime.

Here in this website you will discover new dimensions of understanding that will encourage you to live your life with enthusiasm, with a lifelong driving purpose, with peace of mind, and with an overflowing joy that will abide with you till your last breath.

This is a site of pragmatic living – accepting that life is full of troubles and sorrows, but knowing that in the midst of all the troubles and sorrows you encounter you can live your life with joyous enthusiasm. And your joy and enthusiasm will overflow into the lives of your loved ones.

You can live this joyous life because you have discovered the specific purpose of your existence and you know where you and your loved ones are headed. You can live with growing excitement and awesome anticipation because you know with absolute certainty where the present world events are leading to.

Above all, you can live your life with surpassing joy and assurance because you have been given unbreakable promises by the One who controls every event in your life and in this world – promises for your and your family’s lifelong protection, promises of deliverance from every great and little trouble, promises to fulfill every single desire you ask God to grant you.

The Great God who saved me and my family from the brink of death, has given me the gift of deeply understanding his revelation to man – the Bible – and he has also given me the gift of making his revelation plain to his people everywhere. Why he has chosen me only God knows, for I was among the chiefest and vilest of sinners in this generation. But because he forgave me more I love him more, and I desire nothing else in this life but to show his love and salvation to his children worldwide whom the Lord is drawing to him through this ministry. I consider them my children in the Lord.

God’s revelation is given to us in the 66 books of the Bible. In this site, as much as God enables me, I will make plain every prophecy, every law, every teaching intended for man. It’s God’s will that every Bible believer not only believes every word in his Word but also understands every word in it. Where he does not want man to understand some aspect of his Word, he has concealed it, as in Revelation 10:4.

‘Now when the seven thunders uttered their voices, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, “Seal up the things which the seven thunders uttered, and do not write them.” ’

But for the rest of the Scriptures, this is what God desires:

‘Then the Lord told me: “I will give you my message in the form of a vision. Write it clearly enough to be read at a glance. At the time I have decided, my words will come true. You can trust what I say about the future. It may take a long time, but keep on waiting – it will happen!’   Habakkuk 2:2-3 CEV

But what do we see among God’s people today. A lack of clarity of God’s revelation to man. Apart from the core doctrine that salvation is impossible apart from Christ, I think in almost every other aspect of Christianity, there are differing and opposing doctrines.

One church believes in the Trinity, and another doesn’t. One thinks God wants his people to be fully immersed in water to be baptized, but the majority of Christians think sprinkling some water on an infant suffices. There are then the Sabbatarians who believe that the seventh day is the Lord’s holy day, and there are the Sundayarians, who believe that Christians should not observe the Jewish Sabbath, but only the first day of the week. I could go on an on.

Our Lord is not responsible for his churches’ confusion. Just as in worship, God expects order and soundness in the understanding of his Word.

‘And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. 33 For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.’ 1 Corinthians 14:33

Now, there is one book in the Bible that is indeed unique. This book sums up and concludes the entire teachings, prophecies and hope that are in the other books. It is the only book that specifically pronounces a blessing on those who read it, and a curse on those who dare to alter it in any way.

This book is The Revelation of Jesus Christ. It is only in this book that the order of coming world events is given in chronological order. It is also the one book that Christians in general find the most ununderstandable of all the books in the Bible. Yet that book begins with the words:

‘The Revelation of Jesus Christ which God gave Him to show His servants – things which must shortly take place’.

God gave the revelation to Jesus Christ for what purpose? To show His servants what’s coming upon this earth ‘shortly’! This book is meant to be understood by God’s people more than any other book in the Bible. And, as I mentioned earlier, this is the only book in which God gives a special blessing to those who read it and heed those things which are written in it.

‘Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophesy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.’  Revelation 1:3

The revelation in this book, and in the rest of the books of the Bible, is God’s supreme gift of understanding to you, ready to be personally handed to you by Jesus Christ. If you are ready to receive this gift from him, then you can receive understanding of what’s going to happen soon to this world and where you and your family will be in the coming years.

God’s revelation will open your eyes to the child-simple truths that many of the great theologians of this world are grappling with. God’s precious promises in his revelation will encourage you to seek his protection and guidance for yourself and your loved ones through the cataclysmic events that has already begun to sweep through the whole world and which will increase in intensity and scope till they are ‘such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be’. Matthew 24:21

But there’s more. God’s awesome gift of revelation will also show you how to enjoy your daily life to the full, how to excel in your work, how to take care of your body, how to keep your marriage and family life safe, how to parent your children without the least remorse later on – in one phrase, how to have the supremely abundant life even as you go through life’s many troubles and sorrows.

This website will very likely transform your thinking process. If God is calling you to be a regular visitor to this site, it is very unlikely you can continue to live in the same dimension you are living now. Your mind will reach presently inconceivable heights of understanding. Your heart will be filled with the ‘deep things of God’. You will have frequent encounters of a kind that ‘eye has not seen, nor ears heard nor have entered into the heart of man’. But your eyes and ears and heart can receive the ‘things which God has prepared for those who love him’.  1 Corinthians 2:9

I look upon everyone who is encouraged by the messages in this site as a precious child of God whom the Lord has given me as one of my worldwide children in the family of God. I’d be happy to hear you call me ‘Pappa Joseph’, like some young people I know call me affectionately (a name that reminds me of ‘Papa Mueller’, as George Mueller – one of my greatest spiritual mentors – was called by many who were encouraged by him)…unless of course you are around my age or older than I (in my 60s as I write this), in which case you may call me Brother Joseph, or just Joseph.

God will bless you and prepare you for what’s coming soon as you humbly allow him to give you his gift of revelation through the pages of the Bible, which I am making plain in the messages in this website. I truly believe the Lord has many awesome things to reveal to you in the coming months and years. I pray that your association with me through this website will remain long, and that my messages will always be a source of encouragement, comfort and guidance to you.

Lord, keep this precious child of yours who is reading this welcome message safe in your care till the return of your Son.

 

Pappa Joseph
