Dear Partners and Friends,

I am writing to you this month with a sense of awe while beholding something so surreal that it is hard to relay everything this experience has imparted to me. From the Eastern edge of Turkiye, in a location from where we can nearly look over the border into Iran, we are at the site of what is arguably the most globally recognized story in history.

As listed in the Book of Genesis, the story of Noah and the account of a giant ship he built has been around since the beginning of recorded antiquity. The story has several iterations in a variety of ancient literature, but uniquely, they all share a similar historical narrative. As I started writing this, I realized that we are where many believe we come from, where God started over, right here at the final location of Noah’s Biblical Ark.

After spending a few days in this location, it has become very compelling that this is most likely the final resting place of the great ark Noah built in the Book of Genesis. 

While preparing to visit this location, the Holy Spirit began ministering to me. I had been asking myself how to present irrefutable proof that this is Noah’s Ark and make it clear to the world that this is indeed the most monumental location in history! 

The Spirit ministered to me to convey what I have seen and how it impacted me. Trying to make an argument that this is the ark of Noah is not the ultimate purpose of this journey or prophetic assignment. Without a revelation, any information that points to the truth will fall on deaf and cynical ears. Only those with ears to hear and great sensitivity to the Holy Spirit will hear what is being said to a generation through this magnificent sign to our time. 

As you may recall, on April 8, we started a prophetic assignment that would begin by going to all seven churches in the Book of Revelation. Midway through, we spent time in Russia for filming and had the opportunity to minister along with Rick for Moscow Good News Church and additional church meetings until we ultimately ended up at Noah’s Ark in the mountains of Ararat, at the Iran border. 

Why a prophetic journey? To answer this, it is essential to understand that sometimes, in scripture, we see prophets sent by God to do what is called a prophetic act. You find this most often in the Old Testament and highly displayed by the strange activities of the prophet Ezekiel who, for lack of a better description, would act out God-directed prophetic pantomimes to make statements and convey the heart of God toward any particular matter on the mind of the Lord.  The purpose was to be a sign to the nation and its people. For the masses, in part, it was like drawing in crayon so those hearing or witnessing the dramatic, sometimes vulgar, expression could get God’s point on the most basic level. 

In the New Testament, one clear example is the prophetic act of the prophet Agabus taking Paul’s belt and wrapping his wrists with it to show this would happen to the belt’s owner. 

And as we stayed many days, a certain prophet named Agabus came down from Judea. 11 When he had come to us, he took Paul’s belt, bound his own hands and feet, and said, “Thus says the Holy Spirit, ‘So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man who owns this belt, and deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.’ “

—Acts 21:10-11  

Sometimes, a prophetic act or prophetic assignment involves visiting a location or meeting a person or group. Such was the case when Saul was told to go to a street called Straight, as we see in Acts 9:11, “So the Lord said to him, “Arise and go to the street called Straight, and inquire at the house of Judas for one called Saul of Tarsus, for behold, he is praying.” Or the time when Peter, after a trance, was told by the Spirit that there were men downstairs and that he was to go with them. Ultimately, Peter was given a prophetic assignment to go to Cornelius’s house. 

While Peter thought about the vision, the Spirit said to him, “Behold, three men are seeking you. 20 Arise therefore, go down and go with them, doubting nothing; for I have sent them.” 21 Then Peter went down to the men who had been sent to him from Cornelius, and said, “Yes, I am he whom you seek. For what reason have you come?”

—Acts 10:19-21

This was the purpose of going to each location of the seven churches in the Book of Revelation. Rick Renner was a wonderful host, walking us through each location. In my spirit-man, I kept hearing the powerful words spoken by Jesus in Revelation, “He who has an ear to hear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” Jesus wants His Church to hear what He said to these seven churches over 2000 years ago. There is something to take away from each church, individually and corporately.

Demystifying the Prophetic – Now Available!

Never before has culture had a greater need for clear, prophetic insight, while never before has so much prophetic error and controversy swirled around us to discredit legitimate prophetic voices. Now, more than ever, true biblical prophecy must take its place at the forefront.

Joseph Z—an international prophetic voice—began encountering the voice of God from a young age through visions and dreams. With wisdom, accuracy, biblical balance, and experience, Joseph offers powerful keys to help you unlock the revelation, interpretation, and application of prophecy.

In Demystifying the Prophetic, Joseph Z will teach you how to:

  • Identify real and false prophets
  • Activate a clear-minded prophetic lifestyle
  • Master your gifts and experiences
  • Interpret trances, dreams, entities, déjà vu, and strange phenomena
  • Recognize four types of prophets operating in the Church, government, and marketplace
  • Discern the signs of the times

Mature prophecy in its pure operation stands unrivaled in power and accuracy against all counterfeit voices. The Church and the world desperately need and deserve this better class of prophetic experience. Jesus desires to work through you and equip you to prophetically navigate these last days!

After going through the seven churches, we went to Moscow, Russia, along with Rick and Denise, to minister for Pastor Paul Renner several times at the Moscow Good News Church. We even became members of that church! Being there again was a testimony of God’s faithfulness, for He spoke to me about that church for years. I knew we had a prophetic assignment with Rick for the past 15 years. 

We also had the great privilege of ministering together with Rick for other meetings that were very cautious of prophets from previous bad experiences. However, we were able to serve that body of believers with solid preaching and prophetic ministry. They were so grateful, and so were we! We spent time strategizing and walking through history all over Saint Petersburg, Russia, with Rick and Denise before returning to Turkiye in preparation for our journey to the site of Noah’s Ark. 

It was a cross-country journey to the farthest eastern border of Turkiye, still held by many as Armenia. 

While at the site, revelation after revelation of God’s goodness was present, as well as a revelation of the extremes He went through to preserve humanity and keep the bloodline clear for the coming of Jesus! 

An experience I will never forget as long as I live was when we hiked down into the valley leading to the site far below. There were streams and ravines to cross over. At one point, when we came around a corner, we were taken aback because suddenly, we saw the site in its entirety close up. From the back to the front, we could see the whole vessel! It was recognizable plain as day and was breathtaking to behold. That is when it struck Heather.  I looked over at her to see tears gushing down her cheeks. I walked over to her and asked what was happening. She replied through quiet sobs, “This is where we all come from and where we began, and He began again with us.” It was overwhelming momentarily, to the point that it also got Rick’s attention. 

The following day, we were able to journey in a wagon behind a tractor much higher into the mountains of Ararat. We passed through what was arguably the oldest town in the entire world to get there. Once we could go no farther due to the tractor nearly getting stuck in the mud, we climbed out of the wagon we were all heaped in. It was the location of the landing. The Ark would have landed at the high point before sliding down the mountains to where it now resides. We crossed the ancient Silk Road to arrive at this location, which was mind-blowing for me as I studied the ancient Silk Road and even wrote about it in my book Breaking Hell’s Economy. Some accounts suggest, and even more, that travelers would come along the Silk Road to see the Ark as part of their journey and even take relics of it and timbers. Pieces of it have been reported in ancient churches and other locations.

We were also directed to a location a ways off to the side of the gigantic area with a perpetual mudslide that glided the Ark to its final resting position. As we walked to this area of intrigue, I was told that this was what was referred to as the altar of Noah. You could see within it the gouges where blood flowed from sacrifices. It was at this location that Noah could have seen God’s covenant rainbow. We not only saw all these sites, which included us going to the headwaters of the Euphrates River, the house of Noah, but also witnessed the giant drogue stones that were left behind as the Ark dropped them, making its way through the flooded valley to the mountains of Ararat. All of it was overwhelming. 

After seeing it all, it began to dawn on me why the Lord had sent us here. The prophetic sign for us being in these locations was to point out His plan for man again and again. His plan is always redemption! I began to see even in destruction that is beyond words and the magnitude of a global flood, God is not willing that any would perish. He is so long-suffering, and even in the midst of it all, is preparing us to experience His redemption in the coming storms and days of high challenge. The journey to the Ark was a sign of our time to me.

We have an upcoming LIVE prophetic broadcast in which I will expound on what I believe this prophetic act means for the United States and God’s future plans. Remember, it is a plan of redemption, even if that means redemptive instability. One thing I know: The 40-day journey we went on will never leave me. 

I look forward to having you join me live on June 11th at 7 PM Colorado time for a special prophetic word about this journey and the future of our nation! 

There is so much more to come! Thank you, partners, for your support and standing with us. Together, we will raise a million to reach a billion, and I believe we can truly impact the world. 

For Jesus, 

Joseph Z
