This website is distinctly Messianic, comprising the Abrahamic expression of faith, which is to the Jew and the Gentile with a Hebraic character. We affirm the fullness of absolute truth contained in the Bible, embracing the cross and identifying with the convocations of the Lord as seen in the Feasts, the Sabbath and Passover. We reject the legalism of many in the Messianic movement. We reject the Babylonian Pagan traditions of the church. We consider all people Jews and Gentiles and those in all churches who are truly born of the Spirit of the living God to be one family. We reject institutional organised denominationalism (division). We foresee a great falling away of much of the church in these days, while at the same time a great restoration of part of the church. We affirm and identify with God's plan and call to the Jewish people in these days and will support and stand with them as future brothers and sisters. We stand happily with pre / mid/ and post tribbers. Our slant is cautiously pre-trib, but hey, post tribber...you're still family! Today much error has been added to Christendomand much truth has been removed. The Prophetic Scroll's aim is to deal with these issues and assist you on your road to glory.
I was saved in 1976 and became extremely interested in Bible prophecy, being an ex war-correspondent and photographer. My calling and aim is to share the dramatic and all-important issues of prophecy relating to our day. This is a calling to unfold and share the wisdom of God as contained in His word. There is also much teaching in these pages for your heart. It’s not all prophecy! Please study these things further yourself and understand that the format is non-exhaustive. Please search the scriptures to “see if these be true.” This is a "watchman" and Bible prophecy teaching website.

70 years since the Holocaust and the world (Particularly Europe) has learnt nothing! The Jews have been unanimous with their chant “never again.” But here we are with anti-Semitism rising fast and spreading throughout Europe. Jews again fear for their lives! A new Holocaust is coming, this time led by Islam and backed by the world.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my own personal love for God’s word on the Jews. I will always stand with my Lord for Israel and against His and Israel’s enemies.
Edition 244. January 28th 2015
What if the Bible is true?
What if the Bible is true?
In this edition I want to have a look at what the implications would be if the Bible is true and isn’t true.
The question on the veracity of the Bible really goes to the veracity of God Himself. God and His Word are one. So if our risen Messiah is real and true, so is His Word.
Today there is a huge move amongst many churches to de-throne the Bible, to play it down, and with some, even to discredit it. There is a huge move away from the literal interpretation and plain meaning of the scriptures.
Satan must shoot as many holes in the Bible as he can to achieve his purposes. Today it’s fashionable to cast down the truth of the scriptures and dismiss all absolutes. But make no mistake, anyone doing so does so to his eternal detriment.
Psalm 117:2 “The truth of the Lord endures forever.”
These truth-destroyers will themselves be destroyed by the very truth they cast down.
The Bible has produced more deception, division, hatred, death, mass murder, and conflict than any other book in the world ever. This same Bible has also produced unity, love tolerance, harmony, peace and the very essence of life - eternal life at that!
Who is doing the interpretation is the big issue. If modern man is doing the interpretation of the Bible – I feel sorry for you. If your local minister is doing it according to his denominational views, again, I feel sorry for you. If your interpretation is of Calvin or the early-church so-called fathers, I feel terribly sorry for you.
Now have a look at the amazing verses below. It is referring to prophecy, but it applies perfectly to all interpretation of doctrine.
2 Peter 1:19-21 “We have the prophetic word made more sure, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts; knowing this first that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.”
Do you see it? So, who is the only valid interpreter? Yes, it’s the Holy Spirit Himself. Do you see that this verse alone shows that all denominations and divisions are caused by Spiritless men?
Just look at what Spiritless men have done with the Bible. They have produced some 30,000 different so-called ‘Christian’ denominations and divisions. And here’s God’s desire, plan and will:
1Corinthians 1:10 “Now I plead with you brethren, by the name of our Lord, Yeshua the Messiah, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgement.”
James 3:15-17 speaks of the wisdom from below which is demonic and produces strife, bitterness, self-seeking, confusion and every evil thing. By contrast the wisdom that is from above is pure, peaceable, gentle, yielding, and full of mercy and good fruits.
So, in these verses we see that for the Bible to be true, it must be interpreted by the Holy Spirit. It will then have Godly results and fruits.
Do you know why some ministers create division, disunity and all sorts of doctrinal error using the Bible to back themselves up? It is because they can’t see! They are “the blind leading the blind.” They don’t have the God-given tools to rightly divide and apply the scriptures.
Now, have a look at these profound verses below:
John 8:42-44, 47 If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceed forth and came from God, nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me. Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. You are of your father the devil...there is no truth in him. He who is of God hears Gods words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God.”
2 Corinthians 4:4 “The god of this world (Satan) has blinded the minds of them who believe not.”
So now in these verses above we see that unbelievers are unable to see, understand and hear the true word of God. By contrast here is the exact opposite:
John 8 31-32 “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed, and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
So, how can this be? The answer is that the Bible is a supernatural book. It is essentially Spirit and Life. It requires supernatural gifts to see and understand its mighty revelations which cause it to come alive and speak like no other book ever has or can.
The Bible says of itself, “The letter (of the word) kills, the Spirit gives life.” (2 Corinthians 3:6) So there we have it from the Bible itself. It says it will produce death or life!
The Bible speaks of the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error. Biblical truth and error are essentially spirits! (1 John 4:6)
You see, some people are “always learning, but never coming to the truth.” (2 Timothy 3:7) We must be in the Spirit and test the spirits!
Job 38:15 “From the wicked their light is withheld...”
It is God who is in the blinding business. A powerful example is in the blinding of the Jewish people. Because they “believed not” in their Messiah, God blinded them and deluded them. It is God who gives light and sight!
Here is the right attitude to the word of God:
Job 42:5 “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my spiritual eye sees You. Therefore I abhor myself and repent in dust and ashes.”
Matthew 4:4 “It is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.”
If the Bible is true here are some staggering implications:
If the Bible is true, you were called into salvation before the foundation of the earth. This is the purpose and meaning for your life – to find and walk in His call for you. This is the answer to the modern stressed out life of variable values and variable everything else.
I recall standing at a woman’s bedside some years ago. She was about to die. She said to me that her life had been an aimless mess and that she was just a piece of rubbish. She had stolen her life from God to live for herself all her days.
I told her that even at that very late stage she could turn things around completely, accept the salvation of the Lord and could still have purpose in her life even if it were just in prayer. She died that night without making right with our Lord.
If the Bible is true, you need to be born-again to even see the kingdom of heaven.
1 Corinthians 2:14 “People who are not Christians cannot understand these things; they are foolishness to them. They cannot understand them because they are spiritually discerned.”
If the Bible is true, hell is real, eternal and its coming soon! And all the verses speaking of it that nobody preaches on these days are true and real.
Do you know that all but two of the warnings about hell from our Lord were given to believers?
If the Bible is true all religions are invalid and salvation is through the cross and shed blood of our Messiah only and exclusively.
If you do not know and believe the Bible you will not be ready for what is coming. Numerous verses paint a horrific picture of many Christians who will be overcome. Just have a look at these verses below:
2 Peter 2:21 “It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them.”
2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception, among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they may be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion that they should believe the lie that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
Matthew 24:12 “Because of the increase in lawlessness, the love of many will grow cold.”
Today we have a church full of the knowledge of the world and ignorant of the word of God. Many have cast aside the word of God in favour of their own stupid satanic philosophies!
Romans 1:18 “The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness.”
Isaiah 59:14 “Truth is fallen in the street.”
If the Bible is true:
You can try all you like to prove the Bible true. You can use Bible numerics, science, archaeology and many other such things – all valid. But you still can’t make it come to life. You can’t breathe that living revelation knowledge into it. The book remains dead, just like any edition of Shakespeare!
The most powerful proof of the veracity of the Bible is not fulfilled prophecy, numerics or the like. It is the testimony of radically changed lives. Only the Spirit of life produces radically changed lives. Likewise, proof of the veracity of the Bible also lies in death and destruction, the savage killing of multitudes by the Catholics in the name of a religion born out of the misuse of the Bible.
If the Bible is true, those who call us “religious bigots” will forever regret that they weren’t one of us.
If the Bible is not true – anything goes and who cares! If the Bible is not true, what CNN, BBC, SKY, and others say matters.
If the Bible is true, and it is alive in your heart, it will produce a restraint in you. (Hosea 4:1-2)
Psalm 25:5, 10 “Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation. All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth.”
If the Bible is not true:
●There will be no understanding or urgency relating to end-time events. ●You will be able to assimilate perfectly with and into the world. It will be your very good friend. ●You will not see any division between the world system and the kingdom of God and will have no insight into the demonic. ●You will have the wisdom of the world’s media as your informer and source of knowledge. ●You will be just like them. ●You will be able to merge with other religions and be involved in inter – faith. ●You will be free from having to deny yourself, and take up any cross of any sort. ●You will be strong in the power of self effort and worldly wisdom. ●You will be free to live for self, full of self-indulgence. ●You will not see the necessity of being holy. ●You will be full of stress. ●You will not see the difference between truth and error. They will blend and merge together. ●You will not see or believe in coming judgement. ●You will not see your own judgement coming. ●You will believe in the rights of the Palestinians to the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem, or at least a part of it. ●You will think the two-state solution is the right way.
The correct use and application of the Bible:
This will always produce these fruits or effects:
●You will have a longing for His appearing. ●You will always have conflict with some of those outside of the cross and Spirit. ●You will be in unity of faith and experience an increase in faith. ●You will lose your love for the world system. ●You will desire to crucify self. ●You will have increasing victory over the demonic. ●You will have a love for the salvation of the lost. ●You will grow in holiness, righteousness, and experience rivers of peace. ●You will increase in Godly wisdom. ●You will have strength through knowing God ●You will see the signs of the times. ●You will experience a glorious sense of being known and accepted by Our Lord as His friend. ●You will know and see truth and error. ●You will walk in safety from deception. ●You will love God’s plan for Israel and stand for Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews. ●You will see and understand coming judgement. ●You will have a fear of the Lord. ●You will love all of God’s natural creation.
Proverbs 23:23 “Buy the truth and do not sell it, also wisdom, instruction and understanding.”
Isaiah 26:2 “Open the gates that the righteous nation which keeps the truth may enter in.”
The big take-away:
If the Bible is true, the biggest catastrophe ever, for many people is on the doorstep. It is the reality of eternal judgement. Eternal judgement is one of the major doctrines of Messiah. (Hebrews 6:2)
►May I share with you two short (true) stories?
One comes from an individual who has spent much of his life, a lot of money and effort trying to prove the Bible wrong. His famous presumption is that the ark of Noah, according to the Biblical dimensions, would have been far too small to contain two of each animal.
Then someone told him that the Bible actually doesn’t say that. It says “two of every kind” in the original. So it was not two of all antelope types, but two of the antelope species alone. Now that changes the entire picture completely! In fact another scholar has worked out that two of every kind (Species type) fits perfectly into the ark dimensions! (You will find this in the Amplified version of the Bible and by doing a word study in Strongs.)
Imagine the futility, and now the horror of discovering that all your life’s efforts are destroyed by one sentence of Biblical truth!
The other story comes from someone I know who similarly has been trying to prove the Bible wrong. His thesis is that the world is much older than 6000 years, which is the period revealed in the genealogies of the Bible. “All you need to do is look at the fossil record and the dinosaurs to see that science proves a world many millions of years old.” He claims.
Big mistake he made! Again imagine being so dumb as to try and prove God’s word wrong. The answer is right here in the Bible.
I’m not going to go into all the amazing, wonderful details here now as it’s not our main subject, but essentially the Bible reveals that there was a pre-Adamic world, which Lucifer was in charge of. It could have existed many millions of years ago. It was destroyed by a flood for its evil.
The earth rising out of the waters in Genesis is not creation, but re-creation. The Biblical account from Adam to present is 6000 years, but there was much more, including the dinosaurs long before that. Again, it’s not very clever to try and prove God wrong!
I have done some work on the pre-Adamic race in Edition 37 which you can find HERE.
The second big take away:
If the Bible is true, end-time prophecy is true. All fulfilled Bible prophecy was fulfilled in a literal manner, meaning that unfulfilled prophecy will continue to be fulfilled in the same manner and it is!
All these ‘mad’ watchmen yelling about things to come very shortly are in fact the ones to listen to. The words they speak make a mockery of the world’s mass media – the deception speakers and the “scoffers” who believe that “everything will continue as always.” (2 Peter 3:3-4)
The entire Biblical end-time scenario with all its drama will play out exactly as foretold in the scriptures.
If the Bible is true God’s plan for Israel, Jerusalem and the Jewish people is on track (as it is). The prophesied failure of the Jews to recognise their Messiah is true. The prophesied destruction of the Temple in 70AD is true. The reclaiming of Jerusalem in 1967 is true. The prophesied birth of the nation of Israel in a single day is true. The prophesied revival of Hebrew, the pure language, is true.
The regathering to the land initially in blindness is true and the prophesied soon-coming lifting of the veil of blindness is true. The prophesied dividing of the land and city of Jerusalem which will bring major,massive war and not peace is all true.
If the Bible is true the terrible reality of the Jews rejecting their Jewish Messiah is quite true.
Matthew 23:37-38 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! See your house is left to you desolate!”
If the Bible is true, this is not the end of the story; the following verse reveals the glorious end:
Jeremiah 31:31 “Behold the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.”
If the Bible is true; God will bring the Jews back to their land in blindness, then open their spiritual eyes, then use them as His instruments to bring salvation to a world in tribulation, or at least those who will respond.
Of course the Bible is true, but that’s only the beginning. You need it to come alive and speak to you. It must lead you and guide you from within your own heart.
If you have desired and embraced the truth and are seeking it and it is coming to life in your heart you will notice a few things. You will become wise. You will experience an inner joy and peace and you will always be a bit mysterious.
Proverbs 3:32-35 “His secret counsel is with the upright. The curse of the Lord is on the house of the wicked, but He blesses the house of the just. Surely He scorns the scornful, but givers grace to the humble. The wise shall inherit glory, but shame shall be the legacy of fools.”
Psalm 1:1 “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands with sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful, but his delight is in the Word of the Lord.”
I did this mixed media painting combining various texture effects following an ethnic theme.
I took this picture deep in the Tsitsikamma Forest. This is the beautiful Fraser Falls. There are no paths - its arm-ripping thorns all the way!
Shalom and grow in grace!
Edition 243. January 20th 2015
What are the Israel signs now?
What are the Israel signs now?
The title image above shows the interior of the Holocaust Museum, Yad Vashem in Jerusalem and the exterior of the Shrine of Book museum in which the Dead Sea Scrolls are housed, also in Jerusalem.
The Shrine contains the words of prophecy that predicted the Holocaust, which are seen here in the victims now enshrined in Yad Vashem. The Shrine also contains the prophecies of the soon-coming Holocaust!
The Isaiah Scroll is one of the Dead Sea Scrolls. It is virtually the entire book of Isaiah, which goes a long way to proving the veracity of the Bible. Isaiah contains many prophecies of the sufferings of the Jews. It also contains the answer which is our substitute, the suffering servant, our Lord Yeshua in Isaiah 53.
Many of the prophecies of Isaiah contain a double reference and relate to times past and times now and just ahead.
This most certainly is the greatest drama the world has ever seen or known and it is all about to intensify. The stage is set, the actors are in place, the orchestra is warming up and the curtain is just starting to rise.
This drama sees more death and destruction upon this world than ever before, but it has a most glorious, wonderful conclusion, which we will have a brief look at. Unfortunately the political leaders of the day won’t be looking at this story of truth even though they the devil’s disciples are players themselves.
Whenever God moved with Israel in the past, Satan arose and tried to prevent it. This is the case now. The Jews are about ready to come to salvation in large numbers and we see Satan working through his chief agents - the mass-media and the world’s politicians.
Now have a look at this amazing prophecy:
Jeremiah 16:16 “Behold, I will send for many fisherman, says the Lord, and they shall fish them (Jews); and afterwards I will send for may hunters and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.”
The recent events of France and the soon coming anti-Semitic events of Europe and other nations are in fact the beginning of this verse of prophecy in Jeremiah. Fishermen lure and draw their prey, but hunters drive their prey. We are now at this changeover point. The Jews have been and are still being lured back to their land and hunted and driven back.
Wouldn’t it be something if a cartoon led to Jews returning to Israel in large numbers!
The shock of the nations and the Muslims:
Imagine going on a life’s journey and getting to the end and finding you were on the wrong road all along? I’m not talking here of a little mistake, but an enormous, massive mess-up that has resulted in millions of deaths and will result in many millions more!
This is the great mistake of the Pharaohs, the Caesars, all the Popes, Hitler, the denominational churches, many Charismatic churches, the world’s politicians, all the world’s mass media and all Muslims.
They all thought they could make world peace their way. In our day this is seen in the many efforts to divide and share Israel and Jerusalem among the peoples. Dividing the land in our day is seen in Joel 3:2. Note that it brings war and not peace. Dividing the city of Jerusalem is seen in Zechariah 12:2-3 and also brings war and not peace.
In a few previous editions, I’ve shared with you how the Muslim Quran instructs its followers to behead their enemies. I’ve shared on the Quran’s hatred for dogs. Now let me share with you what the Muslim Quran says about the ownership of Israel and who really owns the land, which would obviously include Jerusalem.
Here it is: “Allah gave the land of Israel to the Jews and will restore them to it in the end of days.” Sura 28: 5-6 “Allah gave the persecuted people (the Jews) dominion over the eastern and western lands, which we have blessed (East and west banks of Jordan River). Thus your Lord’s gracious word was fulfilled for the Israelites.”
Sura 17:104 “Before the end of days, God will bring the children of Israel to re-take possession of the land, gathering them from many different countries and nations.”
The two logos below, of the Palestinian Authority and Hamas are wrong by the confession of the Quran (above). Note the maps of Israel in green. They imply that all of Israel is theirs – the Palestinians!
Now let me give you a brief lesson from our Bible:
Ezekiel 20:41-42 “I will accept you (Israel) as a sweet aroma when I bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you have been scattered; and I will be hallowed in you before the Gentiles. Then you shall know that I am the Lord when I bring you into the land of Israel, into the country for which I lifted My hand in an oath to give to your fathers.”
Isaiah 11:11-12 “It shall come to pass in that day that the Lord shall set His hand a second time to recover the remnant of His people who are left...He will set up a banner for the nations, and will assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.”
There’s so much more to this story. If you want to look it up yourselves, you will see that the state of Palestine never existed. There are no real Palestinians from Palestine. These people are Arabs of numerous origins. There is no legitimate legal claim of the Palestinians to any territory within the borders of Israel. The borders of Israel will expand, not contract, by huge amounts in the near future. Do you think there’s a bit of controversy there? Go and look it all up – you will be shocked, and then excitied!
Genesis 17:7-8 “I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant to be God to you and your descendants after you. Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession, and I will be their God.”
Judges 2:1 “...I will never break My covenant with you.”
1Chronicles 16:17-18 “The covenant which God made with Abraham and his son Isaac and confirmed to Jacob as a statute, to Israel for an everlasting covenant, saying, to you I will give the land of Canaan as the allotment of your inheritance.”
So why do Muslims believe and act on the Quran’s command to kill the infidels, to kill dogs and yet they disbelieve its word on the ownership of Israel? You tell me! They will tell you that the later surahs and fatwas supersede the earlier ones, but nonetheless here we have it.
Wait! There’s more:
So now we see what our Bible has to say about God’s covenant promises to the Jews. But the Bible spells out just how it will take place as well. It speaks of the massive world-wide opposition in numerous verses, but also, much to the disgust of the mass-media, the mass-church, the masses of stupid politicians and all the world’s intellectuals, the Bible shows just how Israel will prosper while its Arab neighbours suffer.
Joel 3:18-20 “It shall come to pass in that day that the mountains shall drip with new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and the brooks of Judah shall be flooded with water...Egypt shall be a desolation and Edom a desolate wilderness because of violence (Lit-Chamac, Hamas in English) against the people of Judah, for they have shed innocent blood in their land. But Judah shall abide forever and Jerusalem from generation to generation.”
Obadiah 1:10 “For violence (Lit-Chamac, Hamas in English) against your brother Jacob (Israel) shame shall cover you and you shall be cut off forever.”
Isaiah 35:1-2 “The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them (Jews), and the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose; it shall blossom abundantly and rejoice...”
Ezekiel 36:35 “They will say, ‘This land that was desolate has become like the garden of Eden.”
Amos 9:13 “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him who sows seed; the mountains shall drip with sweet wine.”
And yes, there’s much more, but enough for now. You get the picture.
So, now we have an astonishing thing! The Quran and the Bible say exactly the same thing about the ownership of Israel. I wonder why CNN, BBC, SKY, NBC and the host of others dance to their own demonic tunes?
Imagine being so dumb, stupid, naive, blind, ignorant, and deceived as to think you know better than God! Let me tell you something CNN, BBC, SKY and others of the mass media – you are preparing the biggest killing fields in history.
Your boss, Adolf, would be very proud of you!
Here are two Hitler quotes that are so applicable to the modern media:
“If you tell a big enough lie, and tell it often enough, it will be believed.”
“How fortunate it is for leaders that the masses do not think.”
Appeasement and peace-making with Islam has never and never will work. The Bible tells me so!
Right now we see sympathy for the Jews because of the Paris attacks. It won’t last. The Bible predicts the exact opposite. Very soon the nations of the world will turn against Israel with a vengeance.
It was born in a day, just as the Bible said it would be (Isaiah 66:8).The pure language of Hebrew would be restored (Zephaniah 3:9). The Jews will return from the four corners of the world, first in their blindness. (Isaiah 11:11, Jeremiah 31:7-8). Jerusalem shall be restored to the Jews (Luke 21:24) All nations will come against Jerusalem to divide it. (Zechariah 12:2). Israel will be divided causing massive war (Joel 3:2). Israel will ultimately be invincible (Zechariah 12:6-9). The Jews will recognise their Messiah on their return to the land (Romans 11:25-26 and many others.)
As we look into the history of Israel and the Jewish people we see the supernatural hand of God at work. Do you think that’s suddenly going to stop now? Never – it is about to become even more miraculous, but with great trouble on the way, just as the Bible predicts.
The fall of Israel:
Exodus 34:11-14 “Observe what I command you this day. Behold I am driving out from before you the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite. Take heed to yourself, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you are going, lest it be a snare in your midst. You shall destroy their altars, break their sacred pillars and cut down their wooden images, for you shall worship no other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous is a jealous God.”
The people mentioned in the verse above are all the descendants and originators of the Arab peoples and through them the ‘Palestinians’ today. Do you see that section of the verse in “bold”? Look at it again. Netanyahu – go and look at the verse! Israel, do NOT make a covenant with them.
Exodus 23:32-33 “You shall make no covenant with them, nor with their gods. They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against Me. For if you serve their gods, it will surely be a snare to you.”
Unfortunately we know that Israel will make a deadly peace covenant of sorts with them. This will open the gates of tribulation, death and destruction on a massive scale.
This is where I believe the rapture takes place, just before the tribulation period begins. According to my calculations based on the scriptures, 4.5 billion people will die in the seven-year tribulation.
Micah 7:8-9 “Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; when I fall I will arise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord will be a light to me. I will bear the indignation of the Lord, because I have sinned against Him, until He pleads my case and executes justice for me; He will bring me forth to the light, and I will see His righteousness.”
Amos 9:15 “I will plant them in their land, and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord your God.”
Israel will soon fall hard, but she will arise – it’s coming soon.
Anti-Semitism will die:
Being on the losing side is such a failure. It’s fine to mess up, and fail and then get up, change direction and go the winning way. It’s not fine to fail and stay a miserable failure on the wrong course until you arrive in hell.
Today we are seeing a massive rise in anti-Semitism worldwide, but especially in Europe. You would think that Europe would have learnt from its past! No such luck! Europeans used to call Africa the “dark continent.” What an amazing turn of events. Europe today is more spiritually dark than the dark side of the moon!
With their dark demonic influences has come this new anti-Semitism and appeasement of the Muslims. We have not seen anything yet – it’s just starting up!
Of course it will backfire on them. It will simply chase the Jews back home, which the Bible predicts anyway. Europe, did you know you are helping God’s work?
Obviously it’s not just Europe. When the heat is really on it will be the whole world. Right now it’s Europe and the Muslim nations leading the anti-Semitism charge.
Do you want to see the futility of anti-Semitism? Let me show you the end of them:
Isaiah 60:14-15 “The sons of those who afflicted you shall come bowing to you, and those who despise you shall fall prostrate at your feet; and they shall call you the City of the Lord, Zion of the Holy One of Israel. Whereas you (Jews) have been forsaken and hated, I will make you an eternal excellence, a joy of many generations.”
Jeremiah 30:16-17 “All those who devour you shall be devoured; and all your adversaries, every one of them, shall go into captivity; those who plunder you shall become plunder, and all those who prey upon you, I will make a prey. For I will restore health to you and heal your wounds, says the Lord, because they called you an outcast.”
There are many more similar verses, but I hope, just from these two, you can see who the winning side is and who the big eternal losers are. Do you see the miserable end of anti-Semites here?
Why pray for peace of Jerusalem:
Psalm 122:6 “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May they prosper who love you.”
When we pray for the peace of Jerusalem we are praying for the return of our Lord and Saviour. The only way peace will come to Jerusalem is when the Prince of Peace walks in! So, in fact we are praying for all the events leading up to this to transpire quickly.
You can’t separate Jerusalem from Israel. The two are inextricably linked forever. All the covenants and blessing to Israel in the Bible obviously include Jerusalem even if it is not mentioned.
Genesis 12:3 “I will bless those who bless you (Israel) and I will curse those who curse you.”
Praying for the peace of Jerusalem is a critical prayer. It involves blessings and curses.
Psalm 132:13-18 “The Lord has chosen Zion; He has chosen it for His habitation: This is My resting place forever; Here I will dwell for I have desired it. I will abundantly bless her provision; I will satisfy her poor with bread. I will also clothe her priests with salvation...His enemies I will clothe with shame, but upon Himself, His crown shall flourish.”
Finally, praying for the peace of Jerusalem is not praying for a city. It is praying for the salvation of the people of Jerusalem – the Jews.
Why does the majority of the church sit back and have little or nothing to do with Israel especially in these days? It is because they are thieves. They have stolen all of God’s grace for themselves, thinking that they are the beginning and end of everything! They think that God has no real purpose for the Jews now or into the future.
Open your eyes church, there is so much more to the kingdom of God than your little institution.
The amazing, incredible, tragic, wonderful conclusion:
“Hell has opened her arms to receive you at your coming”, says the Bible. “Multitudes, multidudes in the valley of decision”, says the Bible. “I will open the spiritual eyes of the Jews, I will save you and you will be a blessing” says the Bible.
These are all critical issues – don’t underestimate them and don’t underestimate your own personal propensity to fall under the strong delusions and deceptions around today. You must use God’s provided weapons of spiritual warfare and you must know your Bible – led by the Spirit.
Zechariah 8:13 “It shall come to pass that just as you were a curse among the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you and you shall be a blessing.”
The Eye, the ear, the voice, the hand, and the sleeve:
Zechariah 2:8 “Thus says the Lord of hosts: He has sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you, for he who touches you (Jerusalem) touches the apple of His eye.”
Isaiah 55:3 Incline your ear, and come to Me. Hear and you shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you.”
Deuteronomy 4:30 “When you are in tribulation and all these things come upon you in the latter days, when you turn to the Lord your God and obey His voice, He will not forsake you, nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them.”
Isaiah 49:16 “See I have inscribed you (Zion) on the palms of My hands; your walls are continually before Me.”
Zechariah 12:10 “And I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me who they have pierced; they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son.”
Zechariah 8:23 “For thus says the Lord of hosts: “In those days ten men from every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, “Let us go with you for we have heard that God is with you.”
Today you can give yourself to the wisdom of the beast – the mass media (all of them) or to the wisdom of the living God. I tell you now, the words of the media are not just words; they are charged with the spirit of death and Satan himself.
In utter humility and with tears in my eyes, I say what a wonder it is to be on God’s side – the ultimate winning side.
O how I love my Lord and His word of truth and wisdom.
More and more, the mass- media is becoming the clear mouthpiece of Satan. They are Satan’s banner for the nations. You need to know these things.
But God has set up a banner for the nations. His banner is the opposite! His banner is everywhere the word of God is. It will prevail.
By the way, the reading of just these verses in this edition completely destroys the deadly deception of Replacement Theology.
I did this painting using various mixed media effects, blending abstract and organic themes together. I’ve used thin pieces of coloured glass in some areas.
I took this picture in a local game reserve close to my home. This is a White Rhino which is highly endangered but a little less so than the Black Rhino. It has a distinguishing big square lip and is quite docile compared to the aggressive Black Rhino. The horn is valued at $67,000 per kg. (More than gold). At the current rate of decline these magnificent animals will be extinct within a few years.
Shalom and grow in grace!
Edition 242. January 14th 2015
Where are we on the prophetic clock now?
Where are we on the prophetic clock now?
Many people, including myself, have an insatiable desire to know where we are on the prophetic map and time clock. We desire to be with our Lord and see the end of this entire world’s garbage.
But we must not jump the gun and we must be true to the word of our Lord. There are far too many dramatists out there manipulating people just to get followers instead of following our Lord’s word.
As with a natural birth, labour pains intensify nearer the birth. So it is the situation now and it’s going to all speed up very quickly.
Watching and waiting:
There is a big difference between date-setting and watching. The problem is that many people throw the baby out with the bathwater. For fear of date-setting, many won’t watch for the signs.
No, we should not set dates for the coming of the Lord and yes we must watch for all the signs of His coming. If we are truly obedient to the letter of the Word we can possibly know the time to within a very close time-frame. We won’t know the “day and hour”, but that’s a very short time-frame. Who says we are forbidden from knowing within a week, month or year?
It all depends on how you say things and what your motivations are. If you are dogmatic on a specific day, you are likely to be wrong. If you are trying to prove yourself special with God, right and above others, you are definitely going to be wrong.
The simplest is just to come in humility before our Lord and ask Him to show us what we are entitled to know. That’s it! What we must do then is sit back wait and watch!
There is absolutely no harm in watching, searching out the scriptures and coming up with possibilities and probabilities and presenting them as such.
As we get nearer to the rapture of the church, the start of the tribulation period and all the surrounding events, like an opening scroll, our Lord will reveal more and more to us. We must not jump the gun.
The disciples were told: “It is not for you to know the times and seasons the Lord has put in His power...” (Acts 1:7) Obviously this was an address to those disciples at that time, and is most certainly not the case now. Then we see in Daniel 12:4 that in the last days, knowledge will increase.
Finally as we move right into the end-time scenario Luke 21:25-27 says there will be signs in the sun moon and stars and on the earth.
Matthew 24: 32-33 (Amp) “From the fig tree learn its lesson: As soon as its young shoots become soft and tender and it puts out its leaves, you know of a surety that the summer is near. So also when you see these signs all taken together coming to pass, you may know of a surety that He is near, even at the very doors.” The word “know” as used here is in the imperative tense and is in fact a command. It should say, “I command you to know the time.”
1 Thessalonians 5:1-4 “Concerning the times and season brethren, you have no need that I write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord comes as a thief in the night. For when they say ‘Peace and safety!’ then sudden destruction comes upon them as labour pains upon a pregnant woman and they shall not escape. But you brethren are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.”
Matthew 24:42-44 (Amp) “Watch therefore – give strict attention, be cautious and active – for you know not in what kind of a day (near or remote) your Lord is coming. But understand this: Had the householder known in what part of the night or morning the thief was coming, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. You also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not expect Him.”
The problem with not watching is very serious. It may be deadly for you. Not watching has parallels with blindness. Being blind at a time of massive increase in deception, and being blind when God is showing us many things is a sure way to disaster. Not watching means you will not be ready.
Today many Christians are starved of these end-time truths. They are staggering around in ignorance. Their church leaders are more to blame than they are.
What to watch for:
What I’ve done now, for your benefit, is strung together a number of signs from the Bible and presented them in one paragraph. It gives you a nice encapsulated view. There are many more, not included.
►There will be perilous times. People will be lovers of themselves and pleasure rather than of God. People will be full of covetousness, boasters and proud. Their children will be disobedient to parents. People will be unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, despisers of those who are good. There will be a massive rise in sexual immorality, aggressive homosexuality, and violence (terrorism). People will fall under the seduction of evil spirits and doctrines of demons. There will be an extinction of species and a massive rise in natural disasters of all types. False Christs and false prophets will arise on the wings of much deception and false doctrine. There will be famines and pestilences. There will be a massive increase in Christian martyrdom. There will be a massive world economic collapse. There will be a huge drive for a multi-faith, one-world religion and a big push for world peace.
Many of the above points will occur in the tribulation period, but many will begin to be formed and take shape now in the forerunner and labour pains time-period.
►I would like to briefly have a look at a few of the above points.
●On the point above on world peace and the Inter - Faith movement:
The people of the world backed by Satan think they can bring in world peace by uniting people and religions. I know many ministries that are going full speed down this road.
As the “labour pains” intensify and terror, strife and world conflict increase, so the call for world peace will intensify. It is so even now.
What is the main obstacle to world peace? It is all the differences people have in religion, politics and everything in between. So what is the answer? It is to get rid of those differences. People must be made to be subservient to a larger, bigger goal. They must lay aside their differences so that they can be one.
We have just seen a classic example of people of many persuasions coming together as one in Paris.
There is one great big, huge, monumental difference between true Biblical Christianity and all other religions, philosophies and thinking, that forever separates us from the rest. It is the cross of Calvary and the shed blood of our Lamb.
To unite true believers with the unsaved, you have to get rid of the cross. This would make Christianity an acceptable world religion, together with Islam, Judaism and all the others. This is exactly why cross-less Christianity is already on the interfaith bandwagon.
To unite us with others you must get rid of the cross. Sorry, the truth is the other way around. For true everlasting peace, God will get rid of all and everything outside of the cross!
Imagine spending your life as a so-called believer working for world peace and religious harmony by removing the cross and then God fries it all forever! Imagine it no more –that’s what’s coming - a giant fire and frying pan!
1 Thessalonians 5:3 “When they say peace and safety, then sudden destruction comes.”
The verse above is such a slap in the face to all these Universalists and interfaith types and world peace organisations. They think they’re doing good. “We’re working for peace and safety” they say! Have they got a surprise coming!
I have said a dozen times and say it again. World peace is coming – God’s way, which is the way of the cross through to resurrection.
●On the point above on martyrdom, the statistics are already terrible and we’re not even in the tribulation yet. In researching this, the figures are all over the place. I think this is obvious because it’s difficult to know just who a Christian is and it’s also difficult to get consistent numbers from many isolated places. But God knows everyone.
2014 saw the largest number of Christians martyred ever in one year!
The single bottom line is that it is increasing at a dramatic rate. This is prophetic.
“Martyrdom” of animals by Muslims:
I have always been an animal lover. I have owned quality red setters all my adult life. I’ve been involved in conservation and protection of endangered species and the richness of bio-diversity in general.
I can’t tell you how angered and furious I was recently to see a video clip of Muslims chasing a dog in their vehicle and running it over numerous times until it was dead. Do you know why Muslims hate dogs? Let me give you some information from their prophet and their book:
Their prophet said “Angels do not enter a house wherein there is a dog.” And- “Whoever keeps a dog except for farming purposes will see his deeds decrease every day.” “Then on that very morning Muhammad commanded the killing of the dogs, except the ones for work in the fields.” “A puppy deterred the Archangel Gabriel from entering the house.”
The British House of Commons did launch an investigation into the sign above. A little sign on a park fence in London is not the issue; it’s the much bigger picture that is of importance.
Here are a few verses showing what God thinks of animals:
Deuteronomy 25:4 “You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain.”
Proverbs 12:10 “A righteous man regards the life of his animal, but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.”
Proverbs 6:17 “Hands that shed innocent blood are an abomination to our Lord.”
So, what then does this have to do with end-time events? Glad you asked. It is essentially wrapped up in one verse:
Revelation 11:18 “God will destroy them that destroy the earth.” This obviously includes the full spectrum of bio-diversity.
It is essentially Satan who is the hater and killer of God’s creation. But God will also destroy those people who have been cruel to His creation! To me that is a great and comforting thought.
It is a wonderfully inspiring thought that the future universe with Satan bound will be holy, pure, true and without any evil.
More Muslim murders will be the mark of the times and this year in particular. We are going to see their trademark – mass murders intensifying greatly.
Israel remains the focus:
The focus of all end-time events is Israel and not the US, Europe or anywhere else. They will play their part, but the main stage of events is the Middle East.
I’ve seen reports of ISIS moving towards Israel. We have a political situation in Israel that is now shaking. We have big dramas within the Palestinian Authority and its leadership. We have nation after nation turning against Israel. We have church after church turning against Israel, with the Presbyterians and Methodists leading the way.
We have Russia in economic turmoil and getting worse fast. We have the Russia / Ukraine situation brewing and shaping up for war.
We have the entire Middle East in the middle of the oil-price dramas, which will spark conflict very soon.
So with all of this intensifying, we see a message in the labour pains. Our Messiah is coming soon.
What must still transpire?
Has the gospel been preached in all the world? (Matthew 24:14.) We will never know exactly but we can presume that it has through missionary work including radio and TV broadcasts.
Although the Bible is not very clear on the exact timing of these terrible wars, it seems probable that they will occur before the tribulation begins.
Still to come we have a massive war in which a confederation of Arab nations tries to wipe Israel off the map. This is revealed in Psalm 83.
The war in which the capital city of Syria, Damascus is destroyed with sections of Jordan is still to take place. This is revealed in Isaiah 17.
Then of course we have the massive war of Gog and Magog, generally referred to as WW111. This is revealed in Ezekiel 38 & 39.
The Bible shows the order of things to come. Some things which must still fall into place include:
The signing of a pseudo-peace covenant between Israel and the person who will become the antichrist is still to take place. This also includes “The many” which may be the UN.
As this event takes place, the “restrainer of evil” will be removed. So if you think the world is full of evil now – it’s going to get much, much worse. (But this will be as the tribulation period begins.) This is when I believe the rapture will take place as well.
We also need to see the formalisation of a ten-nation confederacy in the general area of the ancient Roman Empire. This includes modern Europe and the eastern Muslim portion of that ancient empire, which would be Turkey and surroundings through the Levant and around to Libya.
We are going to the falling away from the church gather steam as well. Today we are in a situation where a great deal of the church has already forsaken the truth and effectively fallen away – although they can’t even see it themselves.
So as you see, we’re not quite there yet.
But do remember that many of these things can and will happen fast.
Could it be this year?
This could be the year of the rapture and start of the tribulation. If it is not this year, I don’t believe there will be more than a few more years left. That is also the consensus opinion of many prophecy teachers and reputable watchmen. In this regard you need to take note when the watchmen are saying the same thing!
There are a number of people claiming to know that it will be this year. I’ve read some of the reasoning. I’m happy to leave this door open. We will know when the signs speak.
I don’t have any word from the Lord or anywhere else that it will be this year for sure. But at the same time it could be.
Either way it is very wise to be ready all the time. How much time do you spend thinking about eternity and all things related? Do you deliberately expand your horizons into the realm of eternity?
I took the image above in a section of the massive Namib Desert. I would frequently go off for weeks on end into this beautiful orange desert, over a thousand kilometres long, on photographic trips, but also just to be there and expand my horizons with my God. I would spend much time in prayer, often on a fast as well, seeking our Lord.
Lying in the desert at night was the most surreal horizon-expanding experience ever. The stars would sing and I could almost feel eternity. (I’ve superimposed an image of me rejoicing in the desert.)
Colossians 3:2 “Set you mind on things above and not on the things of this earth.”
Think about all that is involved in stepping into eternity. The big thing is that everything reward-related is over. There is no going back to do things again. There is no second chance. Do you know that your eternal reward-state is set forever as you cross the finish line? You can’t go back and run the race again!
You can run the race again now. You have a second chance now, but not on the other side! It’s always good to expand your horizons and think about eternity. You will live forever my friend – think about that amazing thought.
Do you think it’s worth giving your all to our Lord for His plan and purpose for your life?
One thing you can be absolutely sure of that is birth pangs will intensify. We are going to an escalation in wildly dramatic, most severe events on all fronts. This will include social, political, economic and environmental.
Matthew 24:44 “You also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not expect Him.”
I did this mixed media painting by moulding the leaf from a real one and printing it onto the canvas a number of times using different colours with each print. The rest of the painting is a celebration of colours and textures in abstract style. The Baobab tree at the top is a collage element merged into the painting. I’ve used other trees that are similar in other paintings as well.
I took this picture at night. I set the camera on a tripod with the shutter open for two minutes. I went around the flower with a little hand-held halogen torch “painting” it with light from behind and in front. Voila!
Shalom and grow in grace!
Edition 241. January 7th 2015
The average, nondescript, conformist Christian.
The average, non-descript, conformist Christian:
This edition should be seen together with Edition 208 Entitled “The normal and the abnormal.” Click HERE.
To even begin to look into this subject, we need to establish what the measurement of average is. Quite simply it is the masses of conformists. It is those who, without question follow the crowd in all their ways. Their pre-supposition is that because it’s what everyone thinks, believes and does it must be right.
The most powerful, liberating and stabilising thing for anyone is to understand that you are not your own, and you were made, fashioned and created by God for a purpose of His own. Talk about bringing meaning and purpose into your life!
Knowing God and His call and plan for your life is the most deeply satisfying thing imaginable. It is the destroyer of psycho-babble, and their philosophies of life.
As we move ever closer to the coming of our Lord, the revealing of the antichrist and a flood of evil being poured out on this earth, we can and must secure and anchor ourselves in the love of our Lord.
Bible prophecy predicts a great falling away of the church in these last days. It uses phrases like “The love of many growing cold” and the last days church being “spat out” of God’s mouth. We see terms like: “You will be cast into great tribulation” and others.
The Bible doesn’t give us numbers but the terms used to describe this falling away are frightening indeed.
So, who then are these masses who will fall away? Can we know anything about them and why they grow lukewarm and cold? Can we know and take heed of hidden warnings in the scriptures and in reality all around us?
The danger of being Mr. or Mrs. Average is that you’re in a spiritual environment and climate and your life is a target. The forces are getting so much stronger. As an average half-baked believer you will not be able to withstand these great end-time, satanic powers.
Identifying the problem:
How do you establish what is average? It would have changed with every generation and within different cultures. There is one universal measure of what average is. It is the world now. That’s obviously the measure for the unsaved, but unfortunately it is also the measure for many churches today.
To become an average nothing you need to do nothing. Just go with the flow. Jump into the boat and go with the world. It will form you, design you and make you...to your great regret.
To become something from God’s perspective, much work is needed on your life. Complete “renovation” is needed; a big fight with all those who want you in their boat of conformity is required. You must break the powers of the demonic and set the course of your life on this new path of glory.
It takes determined effort, and many battles – but it is so incredibly rewarding now and will be in time to come.
Do you know why so many Christians are average, non-descript conformists? Simply because that’s what they have been taught and led into by their churches. They compare themselves among themselves. And they are simply lazy and don’t pursue Bible study themselves.
Tell me now, when last did you hear your leader teach you on any of the following verses in the paragraph below dealing with the world? (I’ve just strung them together for your benefit.)
The world’s works are evil. The whole world lies under the power of the evil one. Friendship with the world is enmity with God. The world cannot receive the spirit of truth. The wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. Hate your life in the world. Do not love the world nor the things of the world. I’ve been crucified to the world and it to me. We are to be aliens and exiles in the world. We must escape the corruption in the world. Don’t become entangled in the world again after escaping it. Set your mind on the things above and not on the world. If you are born of God you will overcome the world.
Here are a few more just to seal it all:
John 12:25 “He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.”
Galatians 6:14 “God forbid that I should glory except in the cross of our Lord Yeshua Messiah, by whom the world has been crucified to me and I to the world.”
Colossians 3:2 “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”
Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
Do you get the picture?
►Appeasement means making concessions to an enemy to bring in a state of peace. Hilary Clinton says “peace only comes when you empathise with the enemy.” But the great tragedy of modern life is that the Christian world has more in common with Clinton that our Lord. They appease the world...God’s enemy all the time!
You can only have true peace in the world and within yourself if Satan is not the god of the world and does not operate in self or the flesh. So what must you do to have true deep Godly peace? You must kill the devil! Yes, that’s right, but do it through the cross of Calvary. The cross has crucified you to the world and the world to you – isn’t that just incredible. How powerful is that? (Galatians 6:14)
You also do this in spiritual warfare by binding the works of the devil.
So many Christians today are one with the world. They have not applied the cross to their own lives or the world.
May I share some personal testimony with you? As a journalist and photographer travelling the world in my younger days, it was my playground. I loved the world greatly. It was my job to love it, find it, experience it, ride and flow with it, and support its ways and then bring all that news to the people.
I lived on the cutting edge of the extremes of the good the bad and the ugly and I loved it to be so. Sometime after being saved, I began to see through the world. I began to become deeply disturbed by it. Shortly after winning some journalistic awards, I resigned and went full - time into Bible College. At the same time I did two correspondence courses. I spent all my waking hours praying, fasting and studying.
This was a time of dramatic change. It was the best time ever. My entire life’s course changed very deeply and quickly.
I recall discovering that I must apply the cross to self and the world. I recall discovering with revelation, the verse “If you find your life in the world you will lose it”. That verse was an abomination to me back then. Today it is my passion.
I recall reading Watchman Nee’s amazing book “Love not the world” for the first time. I couldn’t believe that I had been on the wrong course all my life. That book and others by Nee, Tozer, and Finny shattered my life - and not gently I might add.
I came to the conclusion very dramatically that I was not valuable and precious as I had been taught, but useless scum before my Lord. The greatest and most powerful experience and revelation of my entire life was coming to this shattering brokenness and realisation that I was nothing.
The Bible speaks of the wonderful story of an alabaster box or pot being broken so that the inner perfume could be used to anoint our Lord. That is the message of brokenness. As we break, so the Spirit of the living God “perfumes” us with the mysteries of God.
Through much fasting, studying and prayer I began to hear the voice of our Lord through His word. Only after all the brokenness, re-focusing and resurrection I was ready to be used by God His way. This process began nearly 40 years ago.
God will not share you with the god of the world. You can become valuable and precious to the world and its god, Satan, or you can become a broken vessel before our Lord. It’s only as you die to self, the world and the demonic that you become an instrument in His hands.
The nature you are subservient to forms you. The nature you feed will dominate your life.
Sadly most Christians love the world. They want to be a part of it. The reason is because they can’t even see it. They can’t see kingdoms in conflict. They don’t have the spiritual eyes to see.
For years, maybe, you have tried fruitlessly to exercise control over yourself, and perhaps this is still your experience; but once you see the truth, you will recognize that you are indeed powerless to do anything. Such discovery brings human striving and self-effort to an end.
Revelation is the first step to glory and consecration is the second. A day must come in our lives, as definite as the day of our conversion, when we give up all rights to ourselves and submit to the absolute Lordship of Yeshua our risen Messiah.
As the cross works in us, we see that we are not our own anymore. We see that we are forgiven, purified and made holy. As we look to the cross, out of the mists and clouds comes a spectacular earth-shattering view of our Lord on the throne.
We are humbled and brought down to the ground in repentance, but at the same time, as the mists dissipate we see ourselves raised up to glorious newness of life. The cross kills those who apply it, but the resurrection places us at the threshold of eternity and all things new.
God empowers us for His will, not our own worldly will. God does all of this so that we may be acceptable servants in His kingdom, not for Satan’s world.
Here’s your big choice in life. You can be an average, non-descript, half - baked Christian, who might make it to heaven and also might not. Or you can be a radical Christian, a modern-day disciple of our Lord. To become part of the former – do nothing. To become part of the latter - prepare for the most wonderful, frightening, critical, up-rooting, journey ever! It’s a journey to put all other journeys to shame.
Isaiah 48:18 “Oh that you had heeded My commandments! Then your peace would be like a river and your righteousness like the waves of the sea.”
How to bypass your church minister:
It’s not my place or right to instruct anyone to leave their church. But this I will say: You can leave your church in your dust! If your minister doesn’t preach the full truth, you can still get it all yourself. You can fly high above your church minister (not from a competitive point of view) and experience the fullness of what God wants for you.
Don’t let your church hold you back or bring you down to its experience of God. Set your sights and your goals in the land of the radical. Fly high with our Lord.
We need to become worthy to hear the voice of God.
No, I’m not talking about works-based salvation. But I am talking about all diligence in your walk. I am talking about a consecrated, separated life and a radical life. Today far too many people claim to hear the voice of God. Some have the audacity to say that God speaks to them in an audible voice. Many have ministries and claim that God has revealed this or that to them.
But their lives are shallow. They go to the movies and pay money to sit and suck in blasphemy and foul language and the demons of the directors. They worship the gods of Hollywood and the entire entertainment world.
These people are worldly-wise and have Jesus in their back pocket as fire insurance or a convenient sponsor to be brought out just at the right time and then returned to the dark pocket. These people claim God speaks to them! Liars -all of them.
Put very simply, Satan's power in the world is everywhere. Yet wherever men and women walk in the Spirit, sensitive to the anointing they have from God, that power just evaporates.
Truth does not negotiate, consult, bargain or compromise. Truth and holiness are family. They are twins.
Complacency is the deadly enemy of consecration and spiritual progress.
Today most churches have unknowingly “baptised” their members into the world. They are now dead to the full truth of God’s world and very alive to the things of the world. This modern church claims to have power, but it is the deadly, deceptive energy of the flesh.
With this superficial sorrow-less, self-confident church come many evils including the worship of men. Golden calf, Sunday churchianity is the way of the average so-called believer today. Amusement-mad pagan-filled, Spirit-less churches are everywhere you look.
Yes there are a few here and there fulfilling God’s true call and purpose.
Today we are in a world of horrifying evil on every front including the church. There is no restraint because there are no consequences. The people want to have it so.
The holiest and freest are those who know God and are free from the real slavery of the world and the dictates of its media.
Proverbs 3:32-35 “His secret counsel is with the upright. The curse of the Lord is on the house of the wicked, but He blesses the house of the just. Surely He scorns the scornful, but gives grace to the humble. The wise shall inherit glory, but shame shall be the legacy of fools.”
Colossians 2:8 (Amp) “See to it that no one carries you off or captivates you by so-called philosophy and intellectualism and vain deceit, following human traditions, men’s ideas of the material word, following the elemental teachings of the universe and disregarding the teachings of the Messiah.”
Whose tune are you singing to, and whose step are you marching to?
Today the pressures to conform to the world and all its ways are powerful indeed. Most Christians have no hope at all of escaping the world-power. I have seen that first hand just recently in how many of my own Christian friends celebrate anti-Semitic, pagan-filled Christmas.
They don’t stop to question things that are so obviously suspect to start with. They are blind sheep. Many of them have been saved for ages. It really is these sorts of things where you can see the true heart of the individual.
May I say to my own Christian friends reading this, who participated in all the witchcraft of Christmas – you are an open, defenceless target for the devil. When the pressure is really on, you will go with the devil. You are already a betrayer of our Lord’s truth.
Deuteronomy 7:25-26 “You shall burn the carved images of their gods with fire; you shall not covet the silver and gold that is on them (Lit=decorations), do not take it for yourself, lest you be snared by it; for it is an abomination to the Lord your God. Nor shall you bring an abomination (Lit=idol) into your home, lest you be doomed to destruction like it; but you shall utterly destroy it and utterly abhor it, for it is an accursed thing.”
The verse above leaves no door open for the devil. You could apply Christmas to that verse or Easter or any of the convocations of the church rooted in Babylonian, Catholic paganism.
Note the most important fact of the verse. “You shall utterly destroy and abhor” all forms of idolatry.
Christians (including some of my own friends) participate in idolatry because they love it. They don’t “abhor” it.
Notice is being given. My own list of friends has just been reduced. I know some of them, the world-lovers, will be quite happy to see me go!
“Oh, we love the Lord”, they say – you liars, you don’t. You love the Lord of your own creation, with all manner of evil mixed in.
By the way, you Christmas celebrating half-baked sell-outs, did you know the name attributed to Santa, St. Nick is an ancient name for Satan? “Oh we don’t mean that when we indoctrinate our kids, we just use the name.”
Exodus 23:13 “Be circumspect and make no mention of the name of other gods, nor let it be heard from your mouth.”
You know what really is a tragedy of monumental proportions? Santa is supposed to be for kids. I have some Christian friends (ex now) who are over 50 years old with no kids and their lives and homes are full of little Santa’s at Christmas time!
Again I say, you will go with the devil when the pressure is on. You have demonstrated where your real alliances are. You are no different from the world; you are sell-outs singing, “Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way. Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh.” - With your Santa Satan.
Find and follow your unique calling:
The Bible speaks of “the course of the world.” Its direction is set. Do you know the direction and course of your life?
“To whom much is given much is required and to whom little is given, little is required” says the Bible.
Everyone’s calling is different. But no one is called to be an average nothing. Everyone is called to holiness. Everyone is called into the truth. That alone makes you different and sets you on a radical course. But how we all fit together as the body of Messiah is obviously different.
The first step in finding your calling is wanting to find it, and being prepared to pay the price for such a great and wonderful thing.
Imagine the incredibly great shock of discovering that God had a brilliant, wonderful plan for your life and you missed it totally. For a great many this is not an imaginary scenario – it is frighteningly real.
You can and must seek out and find your own special calling and place in the body of Messiah.
John 15:19 “If you were of the world, the world would love its own, yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.”
Being right with God is often an inconvenience and makes you wrong with the world.
Write and pray your way out of the average and into the radical. In 1980 I wrote my vision down, which was a denial of self list while on a long fast. Today every point on my list is reality. I’ve shared it once or twice only to find it hated by many!
You see when you do and don’t do certain things, it generally shows others up. They don’t like the fact that you’re not like them!
To pursue God is easy if we want to. He isn’t hiding. In fact He is seeking us and wants to bring us into His plan.
After the storm!
One morning I took a walk outside after a night-time storm. A large Stralitzia leaf had blown over and this was the detailed view on top of the leaf.
Shalom and grow in grace!
Edition 240. December 31st 2014
False end - time doctrines:
False end – time doctrines:
As we head into what will be an extremely critical year for the world, there are many things we must take heed of in our preparation for our Lord. No, I’m not saying the rapture / tribulation will begin in 2015 although it most certainly could, I am saying the time is very short. If it’s not this new-year it won’t be more than a few more.
This edition is not about false doctrines in general, but those that have specific relationship to these end days. They are not all outright heresy or error. Some are just twists in the truth as you will see.
There are a number of false doctrines that have specific relevance to the end-time scenario. These are the big ones of our day that will intensify and become deadly and dangerous.
I’ll first of all list them and then we can speak about them.
Today we are in a dangerous world of the arising of billboard Jesus – another Jesus – your own personal sponsor for your own life. This billboard Jesus in not holy and pure, and is full of error. He is a creation of the modern church – just for you. He can fit in nicely without interference.
There are so many churches that can’t change even if they wanted to. Their ways are so deeply entrenched in the ways of the world; they are one with it and its god.
The call and cry for repentance and a return to the pure undefiled gospel is falling on deaf, dead ears.
1 John 4:6 “We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error.”
The list of false end-time doctrines:
●Deception today is no different from the past and no big deal if you’re saved.
●Satan is not the god of this world, Jesus is!
●The world will continue as always.
●Jesus is coming back to offer love and forgiveness.
●You can help create a world of peace now.
●Doctrine is not important, just love one another.
●Jezebel in the church.
●Israel is of no consequence. The Palestinians must have half of Jerusalem and the land of Israel.
●You do not need the baptism in the Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit to see and deal with demons.
●Jesus was married.
Identifying last-days deceptions, heresies and false doctrines:
The false doctrines of our day will relate to the important biblical doctrines of our day.
Satan is the god of confusion says the Bible, and of course he is going to obscure himself and his operations and spread confusion in the things of God’s prophetic word.
Revelation 12:12 “Therefore rejoice O heavens and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows he has a short time.”
The verse above will intensify incredibly in the tribulation period, but we are in the labour pains now and forerunner period to the tribulation. We are in a spiritual environment of intensifying battle.
The deadly false doctrines of today will glorify Satan in disguise, cast down God’s eternal truths and exalt the things of the devil.
The devil attacks the Christian through the world system, the flesh-nature and the demonic. The big heresies of today will most certainly include error relating to these three things.
●Deception today is no different from the past and no big deal if you’re saved.
On the Mount of Olives our Lord warned five times of end-time deception during His discourse with the disciples. If you blindly accept everything and you do not question and search for biblical truth, you must be, will be, and deserve to be deceived.
2 John 1:7 “Many deceivers have gone into the world who do not confess Yeshua the Messiah as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.”
Revelation 13:14 “And he (Satan) deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which were granted him...”
2 Thessalonians 2:9 “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs and lying wonders.”
Matthew 24:4 (Description of end times) “Take heed that no one deceives you, for many will come in My name saying I am the Christ and will deceive many. Verse 11: “Many false prophets will arise and deceive many.”
Psalm 119:118 “You reject all those who stray from Your statutes, for their deceit is falsehood.”
2 Timothy 3:13 “Evil men and imposters will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.”
2 Timothy 3:1-5 “In the last days perilous times will come, for men will be lovers of themselves...having a form of godliness but denying its power...From such people turn away.”
So, just in these few dramatic verses above, and there are many more, we see a pattern, a very dangerous, deadly pattern! It’s all about end-time deception.
If your church is not teaching you about deception and warning you of its danger – be careful of that church! Be careful of any church that does not teach on God’s enemies, who, by default, are your enemies.
Revelation 12:9 speaks of the “beast that deceives the whole world.” This is a tribulation verse but do you see that immense power here?
We are in a time period of increasing deception - not the other way around.
This is the urgent message of the day. It is urgent. It is happening even right now.
●Satan is not the god of this world, Jesus is!
For God so loved the world He would never harm a flea! Sounds funny, but that is the exact lie a growing number of people believe. They believe that Satan is in hell or out there somewhere, or something, anything – just not that Satan is the god of this world. (2 Corinthians 4:4)
“How can Satan be the god of my world to have fun in?” This is the unwritten question of most people today!
Satan has power and authority in this world system. He is its god.
According to 2 Corinthians 4:4 God has blinded the eyes of the world. Do you know that? Do you understand that? The world is blind. It is blind to its demise. All of its ways emanate from spiritual blindness. It’s heroes, celebrities, leaders are all blind. The world can’t receive the Spirit of truth. Its works are all evil, it is at enmity with God. We are “not to love the world.” We are to come out of its domain and be separate.
If they could see into the spiritual realm for 1 minute, they would all fall on their faces in repentance!
By the way, the earth is not the world. The world is the socio-political, economic area and the dealings of man. We could say that the earth is adorned or dressed with the world. The earth, although it still has the curse upon it will continue, later restored and glorified. The world will be destroyed soon, never to arise again.
The great end-time deceptions and heresies relating to the world will be those that obscure Satan, keep him hidden, concealed and out of the picture. It is this world that we as believers are commanded to “hate” and “die to.” (John 12:25, Galatians 2:20)
A great coming heresy will be taught by many churches, especially all the orthodox churches. It will be that the world can come together as one in peace and make world peace. This will all be the work of Satan in disguise.
●The world will continue as always.
2 Peter 3:3-4 “Scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, saying ‘where is the promise of His coming? All things will continue as they were from the beginning of creation.’”
It is the end-time scoffers who believe that world will continue as always. That’s actually quite logical if the Lord is not coming back to judge the world, it must continue as always.
If the world will continue as always, there has to be a very strong focus on preserving it, saving it and making it a better place. None of these things are part of the great commission for the true disciple of Messiah.
If nobody knows the time of the coming of the Lord, you must have the world as your playground. There will be little division between the world and the kingdom of God in your view.
This is exactly why so many churches are full of worldly heresy.
●Jesus is coming back to offer love and forgiveness.
People of the world are blind spiritually, uninformed, falsely taught and in all error. They believe that Jesus was some Gentile, gentle guy who was full of love for everything and everyone. Hell is foreign to them.
You would be shocked to know how many intelligent, educated people believe that if this Jesus is coming back again, he will come back as Mr. Nice Guy in love, forgiveness and compassion.
Let me tell you this. Yeshua, the Jewish Messiah, the King of all Kings is returning in love. He is returning to destroy the entire world polluted by Satan, and all its unsaved people, who will be cast into hell. This is pure love in action. Setting up a new world order, a universe of holiness, purity with no sin or evil in absolute glory – is an act of incredible love.
More sure than anything you can imagine, is the coming judgement. It is coming to every human being that ever lived. Every unbeliever will be judged to hell. Every believer will be judged and assessed for reward and loss of reward.
The idea that no judgement is coming or it will be a picnic is an evil heresy.
●You can help create a world of peace now.
The apostate church will remove end-time teaching and all that relates to Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews. It will remove all things relating to end-time judgement, severity, destruction, doom and terror.
With all teaching on the rapture, the tribulation and the second coming, all neatly removed, the Inter-faith world-church will push for world-peace in a big way. Satan will be the driving force.
They will draw in most churches. Already there is a big move in this regard. The stage is being prepared even now.
As in the times of Babylon and all the other fallen world empires, they will think they can build a world of peace.
The push for unity amongst all religions and churches will be a major end-time heresy. Be careful of having anything to do with it. World-peace is coming – God’s way. It is called the Millennium and it is coming on the destruction of all that is not of God and has not gone though the cross of Messiah.
Anything and everything to do with multi-faith is to be avoided. It is ultimately doomed!
●Doctrine is not important, just love one another.
Acts 20:27-28 “I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God. Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock...for I know that after my departure, savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock.”
2 Timothy 4:3 “The time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers and turn from the truth to fables.”
Isaiah 59:14 (End-time context) “I looked and saw the truth cast down in the street”.
2 Thessalonians 2:10 “Because they did not receive the love of the truth, God will send them strong delusion. (End-time context).
2 John 1:10-11 “If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your home nor greet him.”
1 Timothy 4:1 “The Spirit expressly says that in the latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons.”
The verses above need no explanation. They are powerful indeed. Today we are in an environment where doctrine is being sidelined and replaced with, “Just love one another.”
●Jezebel in the church:
This is one of the many deadly, evil spirits in the end-time church. The Jezebel spirit is all about illegitimate domination and control, designed to bring down or nullify church leadership. The tragedy is that few church leaders these days are even aware of this demon spirit.
It attacks families and anywhere where God’s authority structure is found as well.
You do not make peace with Jezebel – you kill her violently. (Not the individual but the spirit).
I have done an entire edition on this subject which you can find HERE. (It is the most hated edition so far.)
●Israel is of no consequence. The Palestinians must have half of Jerusalem and the land of Israel.
This will become the big issue of the end-times. Many churches teach that because Israel rejected our Lord, God has rejected them and is finished with them.
Of course God did reject them, but that’s not the end of the story.
God brings the Jews back into their land in spiritual blindness and when this is complete He lifts that blindness and completes His original call and work with the Jews.
If God is finished with the Jews, then the Palestinians have a legitimate right to the land in terms of democracy and internationalism.
The false doctrines around this issue will spark the next Holocaust and be the dividing fence between heaven and hell for many people.
●You do not need the baptism in the Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit to see and deal with demons.
Please be very sure of one thing. Satan does not operate alone. He has a host of multitudes of demons working with him. Because you can’t see them does not mean they are not there.
You need spiritual equipping, certain tools and weapons to see and deal with unseen demons.
The baptism in the Spirit supplies these weapons of spiritual warfare.
The baptism in the Spirit is also for your edification, to speak mysteries to God, to magnify God, for assurance of faith, unity, protection, discernment, stability, power, authority, endurance, self control, prophetic insight and more.
These attributes and more can be found in the following verses:
Acts 1:18, Acts 19:1-7, Acts 2:38-39, Acts 10:44-47, Acts 2:18, John 14:16, Acts 2:3-4, 1 Corinthians 1:7, 1 Corinthians 14:4, 1 Corinthians 12:12, Romans 12:2.
Many who come against the baptism in the Spirit use the following verse. They say, “You see tongues will cease” But the question is when. The verse is very interesting. It indicates that tongues will cease but knowledge will vanish away. In the original, the word for ‘cease’ means an immediate cessation, while “vanish away” means over a time period.
This verse actually implies a pre-tribulation rapture. That is when tongues will cease in an instant.
1 Corinthians 13:8-13 “Love never fails, but whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues they will cease; whether there is knowledge it will vanish away. When that is perfect is come, then that which is in part will be done away with...For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know as I am known.”
These last days are a time of immense spiritual conflict. If ever there is a time for the full equipping of God’s provision it is now.
►By the way, I distance myself from the ministries that abuse the gifts and have turned them into a lying, magic circus performance. The likes of Benny Hinn and others – I stand completely aloof from.
●Jesus was married.
This may seem somewhat obscure, but it may also be very important. The Dan Brown heresy centres on one main theme, which is that Jesus was married and had kids.
If that were so, there would be people around today who have pure undefiled blood in them with no Adamic curse. The one thing that did make our Lord Yeshua different from all other human beings is that He was born of a virgin with no earthly father, thus sidestepping the curse of the sin-nature that came to us all through Adam.
The logical conclusion of Brown’s deception is that there are people now with the pure blood, Arian, Christ-blood in them. This then makes them divine and equal with the deity of God. Do you see where this is going?
This is important in that sometime soon an individual will arise claiming to be God in the flesh. This will be the antichrist. He will be able to demonstrate in some way that he is pure and has no Adamic curse in him and therefore he will have the ability to be as God, including miracle working.
So, Dan Brown, did you know that you were preparing the way for the devil himself? By the way Dan, I have never and never will read one of your cursed words.
Those who have the unredeemed blood of Adam in them see those with the redeeming blood of Messiah in them as the evil enemy.
There is a similar evil doctrine in the Catholic church.
The Catholic church claims Mary was conceived without original sin. On the Catholic feast of so-called Immaculate Conception, the Catholics repeat the blasphemous phrase; “Oh Mary, our mother, today the people of God, in celebration, venerate you, the immaculate, preserved from the contagion of sin from the beginning. The full story is Here.
Catholicism has thousands of fathers, many are homosexuals wearing frocks. It has a mother who is not a virgin. None of them – not one is my father or mother. I reject them all – every one! (Matthew 23:9)
How to prevent deception:
You can’t in your own strength. You can’t as a compromised Christian. You can only do so through the power of the cross and the shed blood, together with the full equipping of God and the use of His provisions and gifts.
You must know your Bible very well under the leading and guiding of the Spirit of God. If you feed your spirit with the good food of God’s word it will begin to dominate your life. If you feed your spirit with the cursed garbage of the world – it will dominate your life.
The good news:
Very soon Satan will be cast out and bound. The future universe will go through one more brief rebellion at the end of the Millennium, but for all true believers, the second we step into eternity – that’s it! Our glorious future is signed, sealed and delivered forever.
Personally, it is an accomplished fact now, but the full manifestation is at the salvation or glorification of our bodies.
If you want to get a brief glimpse of the glory that awaits us please have a look at edition 197 entitled “The glory of the future universe”. Click Here.
Proverbs 1:28-29 “Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; they will seek Me diligently, but will not find Me, because they hated knowledge (of God) and did not chose the fear of the Lord.”
I created this image from a number of bits and pieces of art work blended into one. The theme is the cross with death on one side of the cross and life on the other.
