Pastor Joe was born in the little town of Crasna (Romania). Ever since he was a child, he has been fascinated by the unique connection between pastors and their special book, the Bible. When at the age of 7 he received his first little Bible from a brave pastor who was able to procure it for him in spite of the interdictions of the communist regime, he felt special and decided one day he would become a pastor.
After serving as a Pastor for 8 years in Romania, in 2013 he immigrated to the USA. He currently serves as Lead Pastor of Plantation Seventh-day Adventist Church. Along with his wonderful wife Anda and their gorgeous daughter Alessandra, he enjoys proclaiming God’s grace and ministering to his fellows.
Pastor Joe is currently enrolled in a doctoral Program (DMin in Preaching) with Andrews University. His hobbies are languages, music, and poetry.

One day, in the midst of a deep existential crisis I rediscovered this verse of my childhood. When the boat of my life was sinking, in the darkness of my distress, discouragement and despair, it became a lighthouse!
For me, this passage is the key for understanding of the book of Revelation. It is located at the intersection of two important sections: the seven churches and the seven seals. It is a bidirectional passage, because it concludes what precedes and introduces what follows.
The victors of each of the 7 churches receive great promises. But the promise that goes to the victor of the 7 th church (the one called wretched and miserable…) is a conclusion, culmination and consummation of all promises! To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne… This is the same as: He who overcomes shall inherit all things! (21:7)
This verse does not only conclude the section of the 7 churches; it also ushers in the following section: the 7 seals! Scholars have called these bidirectional passages springboard passages… Because they function like a springboard… You come running…, jump on the springboard and it springs/launches you forward…
How did Jesus overcome? William Penn said it: “No pain, no palm; no thorns, no throne; no gall, no glory; no cross, no crown.” The enemy repeatedly tried to crown Jesus’ before the cross! When he performed miracles, the crowd wanted to crown Him forcefully as their King.
Rev. 5:5. The lion of the tribe of Judah is the same as the lamb “as if slain”. Before becoming a lion, he had to be a lamb…! Being a lamb, he became worthy to become a lion! He knew: No thorns, no throne;
No cross,no crown! His victory is the model of our victory.
