An Enduring Faith that will sustain and keep you safe

Part of the mission of the Joseph Plan is to help the body of Christ be aware of the events and sorrows mentioned in Matthew 24 that we are experiencing today. These all must happen before the day of our great Hope and Promise. All saved Christians being united for eternity with the Lord in heaven.

Another great hope is Gods’ promise to spare His children from the wrath of God that will be poured out during the great tribulation. That is called the rapture.

The Joseph Plan will always stay on top of world developments and the status of God’s jewel, Jerusalem. But our mission is much bigger than that. Physical preparation is carnal. It is smart and important, but it is only part of the answer.

Our greater mission is found inside Matthew 24:13  He who endures to the end, the same shall be kept safe. (Some versions say saved, instead of safe. But in the original language safe is totally correct,) A primary focus of ours will be on the word “endures”. It’s a very big word. We believe that all of us who are saved, will be saved from the demonic attacks of Satan by our faith and the terrible wrath of God by the rapture.

Mat 24:22  And unless those days should be shortened, no flesh would be saved. But for
the elect’s sake, those days shall be shortened. 
He who endures……..shall be kept safe! Safe from the evil one and his minions.
Endures means to Endure In Faith! Endures means to “not lose faith”! Endures means to walk the  walk of a true believer with An Enduring Faith!A Sustaining Faith! A Faith that overcomes!
Enduring to the end is–Living our lives in the liberty and freedom of An Enduring Faith to our appointed time! Depending and relying on the Lord for our protection and guidance. God tells us that the spirit within us is more powerful than any spirit of the world. That is part of the anointing all saved Christians receive when they are reborn and baptized. We are overcomers. Overcomers of the world.
Luke 21:34 And take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts are weighed down with headaches and drinking and anxieties of this life; and that day should suddenly come on you;

Luke 21:35 for it shall come as a snare on all those sitting on the face of the whole earth.

Luke 21:36 Watch therefore, praying in every season that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things which shall occur, and to stand before the Son of Man. 

1Th 4:13 But I would not have you ignorant, brothers, concerning those who are asleep, that you be not grieved, even as others who have no hope.

1Th 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will also bring with Him all those who have fallen asleep through Jesus.

1Th 4:15 For we say this to you by the Word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord shall not go before those who are asleep.

1Th 4:16 For the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ shall rise first.

1Th 4:17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air. And so we shall ever be with the Lord.

He or she that walks and lives with an Enduring Faith will be kept Safe! Safe from temptation and safe from the acts of the evil one. This is one of  the great promises of God in Matthew 24. His coming back, in the flesh, is the greatest.

 Endures to the end! End of what? End of time? End of the age? End of the tribulation?

He or she that walks and lives with an Enduring Faith to our appointed time, will be kept Safe!

Developing and living In “An Enduring Faith” is the rest of The Joseph Plans mission.

The most important question we all need to ask ourselves is: Are we saved? Are we guaranteed eternal salvation through the saving grace of Jesus Christ?

A faith in Jesus Christ and with the knowledge that He is fully God! A faith that the Lord has accomplished everything. There is nothing we can accomplish or work for that will earn our way to heaven. A faith that assures you that your sins have been forgiven, once you have repented. A faith that will sustain, carry and guide you through all hardship!

A faith that will sustain and keep you for your promised eternal destiny!
Ps 55:22 (NIV) Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.
Rom 10:13  For everyone, “whoever shall call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Rom 6:23  For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Luke 21:28 “And when these things begin to happen, then look up for your redemption draws near.”
John 6:47  Truly, truly, I say to you, He who believes on Me has everlasting life.

Soon we will be studying various biblical lessons on this, including the book of Acts!
What is your thinking? We ask all to participate.

How to walk each day in an ENDURING FAITH that Jesus Christ CAN and WILL protect and guide us through these times will be the theme of this new section of The Joseph Plan.               

We will be exploring the core teachings of the Holy Word that instructs us in how to live with an Enduring Faith that will sustain and protect you.                                                                    

But this has never been done before and the Joseph Plan does not pretend to have all the answers. God didn’t sit me down one day and explain all the ultimate truths for surviving the end times. I read the same bible you do. I pray to the same God you do and am guided by the same spirit. But many of us have different gifts. 

At least in the beginning, we will focus our attention on God’s core precept teachings. These are the teachings that God wants us to understand are primary tenants of our faith. They would include tenants like salvation or the grace of God or our sin nature. They each pass the three way test. Each of these are stated in the old testament, preached by Jesus and explained in the epistles. The teachings that meet this three part test should be at the core of an Enduring Faith. The entire bible is, of course, totally relevant and we will need the entire consul of God to maintain our faith and survive the upcoming hard times. 

The armor of God is a core teaching that we should all endeavor to put on each and every day. Simply knowing about it will not be enough. Believing that they are God’s word and thinking about them will not help you or me to Endure in our faith. We each will have to believe in them as tools that God has provided us and actually DO Them! Not just on Sundays or at a bible study meeting.

I have posted a vast number of core bible verse teachings that are and will be invaluable. Feel free to download them and use them. It is recommended that we each try to memorize as many of these as possible and I will be reminding you about this a lot. The Lord tells us on a number of occasions that we are supposed to take the word inside of ourselves. He even suggests that we go so far as to eat it, if that is what we need to do to have it become part of us.  Living a life IN the word does not mean carrying a bible around in the back seat of your car.

There are many other bible learnings that we can and will be discussing, along with some practical, worldly suggestions and techniques that will benefit us all.

My friend, Are you confident where you are going to spend eternity when this all ends? There is an end for all of us some day. Some of us even tomorrow.

There is only one way to know and be assured– Ask our Father in heaven, in Jesus Christ’s name, in prayer today!

Are You Saved from the eternal fate of so many? Are you sure? Ask Him. Find out and be assured.

Rom 8:16  The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that  we are the children of God.

When we ask the Lord, in Jesus Christ’s name, He assures us with His peace and understanding. If for any reason you question your salvation, go to a quiet place, alone, and talk to Jesus. Repent of your sins and commit your life to Him. Then go to a bible believing church and get baptized.

He is faithful! He always listens and always responds!

The Salvation Prayer (click here) is in the Blog in the right column of this page. You can walk without fear. Start nurturing An Enduring Faith, today.

    Thank-you Paul.

    The Joseph Plan has received a number of letters from these people also.
    I am reprinting your warning as a service to the rest of the Christian community.

    Take heed everyone. We did and trashed their mail.

    God Bless,
    Pastor Thomas

  2. Paul says:


    I am writing to warn of a great evil in this request for assistance by “Evangelist Joshua Udegbejejemi” of “Omugegion Community Church”:

     43, Olugegbeu Avenue GOP 8950,

    Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria

    This man requested 21 large print Bibles, plus monies to pay
    for import duties as well assist children of a fake orphanage. Right now he is
    claiming one of the orphans was abducted – the victim of a rape crime.

    Fake details associated with the above you may come across in any communications:


    *Mobile: 234 802 358 8917

     *“Sandra Omosigho” (orphan victim).


    Bambay Hospital

    192 Siluko Rd, Benin City,Edo State,Nigeria.

    Phone numbers : +234 812 825 0655

    +234 809 704 8566

    “Dr. Kingsley 

     This is part of a network of ‘Bible scams’ – thieves exploiting
    religious compassion to obtain Bibles to sell, then attempting to elicit money directly (via Western Union).

    A good website exposing these scams (there are many others):

    May these thieves repent to obtain mercy.

    Please be warned.

    The ministry of The Joseph Plan received the following letter from a fellow brother in Christ in Nigeria on Sept. 28, 2013,

    Dear Beloveth in Christ,
    Greetings to you in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.I am glad writing
    you this letter.By the grace of God,I am the Founder of Omugegion
    Community Church. I am married with children.I am age 51 and my Wife is 48
    years Old. My occupation is farming.Eight years after giving my life to
    Christ I had a divine call from God to start a Church here in my
    Community. Initially I  resisted but when God started moving and dealing
    in my life,and I obeyed Him.
    Omugegion is a rural community of about 6,000 inhabitants. It is a typical
    traditional community. In recent years the village has been greatly
    stroked by the Aids epidemic which has killed many and made many children
    orphans. The elders of my Community never wanted the Church the Lord Has
    given to me to start and they did every possible thing to stop it,even
    tried to take my life to stop the preaching of the gospel. But they all
    failed. The Bible says in Isaiah 59:19, "When the enemy shall come in like
    a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him." And
    I John 4:4 says, "Greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the
    world." When we recognize the reality of God’s word in these chapters the
    devil is no match for us.
    Today we have about 340 members in our Church.The love in our Church made
    the elders to relent in their fight against us, even some of them have
    been converted. Three years ago we started an orphanage home where
    children without parents and support are given to them . We have 18
    children in the home. 15 of these children’s parents have died from aids.
    Our love and support for these orphans is a surprising issue to the
    elders. It is amazing the way God has met the demand of  the orphans and
    other persons in our midst.The financial status of the people here are
    very low due to unemployment. They do farming work not for commercial
    purposes but for life sustaining using manual labor and crude equipment
    like cutlasses and hoe. Only the government and few wealthy individuals
    have mechanize farming here. We are totally poor in our midst. The
    Children in our Orphanage are in need now and whatever the Lord tells you
    to do for them will be appreciated especially regarding Food.
    I am writing to request for a Study Bible for myself. We have 21 old men
    and women in our church and they can read English Language and I am using
    this means to appeal to you and your Church to help us with Giant Print
    Bibles for them. We are praying everyday here that God will supply you and
    your  Church the means of buying these Bibles for us. And I am using this
    opportunity to invite you to come visit us here in my Country in 2013.
    What do you have to say beloveth ?
    God Bless you. I hope to hear from you soon.
    Yours in Christ,
    Evangelist Joshua Udegbejejemi
    Omugegion Community Church
    43, Olugegbeu Avenue GOP 8950,
    Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria.
