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.

My e-book "The Coming Holocaust" (available here and on Amazon) has had some real rave reviews on a number of radio stations including "Christian United Broadcasting Network, "Radio Preacher Man" and about five others. You need to know this subject in these times. It will all blast onto the world stage very soon!
My new e-book, "Nature, Environment, Wilderness and Animals in prophecy" is now available here on the left hand side, below the Coming Holocaust book. This book covers a great many things from the pre-Adamic creation right through to the Millennium and beyond. I've gone on the war-path against many!
***Both of these e-books have a "read out loud" feature as well. You can simply click the button and the book will be read to you. This is very helpful if you are doing other things and its also a great facility for the blind.

The next edition will be entitled "All about judgment." Due to the fast changing prophetic scenario, this may change.
Isaiah 52:8 “Your watchmen shall lift up their voices, with their voices they shall sing together; for they shall see eye to eye when the Lord brings back Zion.”
These “watchmen” are a treasure in these days. They are not blind wolf-criers like so many and we may not agree on every little detail, but these men of God have an important message.

The purpose of the Prophetic Scroll is to teach and shares on Bible prophecy, but also to comment on present news events, and to warn of what is coming in a timely manner.
There entire prophetic jigsaw continues to fall into place at an alarming rate. You may have noticed that in the previous few editions I have been sharing and warning on these things. They are due to explode dramatically very soon.
Israel is being surrounded more tightly by more radical Muslim elements. We are about to see new fronts open in the north, the West Bank. Keep an eye on Egypt and Jordan in the very near future.
Please don’t miss the next few editions. I will be addressing these things in greater depth and also making a strong attack on the world’s mass media.
Nations beware! When Israel is in a time of severe testing, God takes note of who is with her and who is against her. Nations that come against Israel at a time like this normally see big nasty things happen within days!
Edition 218. July 30th 2014
Images of Israel:
Images of Israel:
For a change, especially at this time, I’ve designed this edition as a visual representation and tribute to the Israeli Defense Force.
The purpose of this edition is again to show my own personal extreme bias in favour of God’s word for Israel and to identify myself and the Prophetic Scroll unambiguously with God’s word in this regard.
Amos 9:15 “I will plant them (Jews) in their land, and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord your God.”
Psalm 129:5 “Let them all be confounded and turned back who hate Zion.”
Some quick definitions that I will refer to:
●Déjà vu, means, “already seen” or that “Been there before” feeling.
●Jamais vu, means, “Never seen before”, or “not recognised.”
●Presque vu, means, “almost seen” or, “on the tip of recognition.”
All my life, even before I had been to Israel, I was in the “Presque vu” camp. I knew all about Israel. My mother had brought me up with a love for Israel and the Jews. I could always “see” Israel in my mind’s eye.
Then when I went there the first time, I had a dramatic experience. I can only describe it as a powerful Déjà vu. I had the sense that that I had been there before and everything was familiar. On top of this Déjà vu, I had a powerful Presque vu feeling as well, realising that I was on the edge of eternity, looking towards many powerful things to come.
I realised pretty quickly that I was seeing with a spiritual eye and seeing things from God’s point of view. Especially around Jerusalem, I had a powerful sense of excitement. I saw in my mind’s eye, terrible war, conflict and destruction. I “saw” the pride and resulting blindness of the Jews.
I “saw” the “eternal hatred” of the Arab people for the Jews. I saw their jealousy and their regret that they had “sold their birthright for a meal”.
In my mind’s eye I looked back to our Lord looking over Jerusalem with tears in His eyes, for His people who had rejected Him and what it would take to bring them to repentance.
Then just as quickly my fertile mind was in the future and I “saw” our Great King of Majesty, retuning to these dusty streets to welcome His now- repentant people, but not after great calamity, war and revolt.
The problem is that too many people in this world have only “Jamais vu” in their heads and can’t see or recognise anything at all relating to Israel. Their deceived teachers have taught them nothing of the Lord’s compassion for His people in the past and their dramatic coming to salvation in the near future.
Some people are just on the edge, in a world of “Presque vu” – on the tip of recognising God’s great plans for Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews.
The big enemy of Presque vu and Déjà vu is “Jamais vu” as perpetrated by the world’s mass media. They are the true enemies of God and friends of the world. As such they can’t see any of God’s plans for Israel. Their job is to inform the people, but because of their blindness, they do so with error, satanic prejudice and miss-information.
Israel’s journey has been like no other – it is almost at its most magnificent and dramatic conclusion! It’s been a journey of rebellion, obedience, love, punishment through wars, with all the odds stacked against her. But God has been there and still is there for her.
So with this in mind, I want to present and share with you some images of Israel in conflict now. These have been taken by some top press photographers. They reveal times of gravity, severity and drama.
A tribute to the Israeli Air Force:
A tribute to the Israeli Defence Force:
A tribute to the girls of the Israeli Defence Force:
Israel, be strong and courageous, the near future is going to see intensifying conflict. Satan will turn up the heat as he sees you open your eyes to your Messiah of Glory – Yeshua.
These are dramatic days of destiny and the unfolding of God’s plans and the attacks of the devil.
A tribute to the steadfastness and glory of Hashem, our God of glory:
Zechariah 8:13 “It shall come to pass that just as you were a curse amongst the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you, and you shall be a blessing. Do not fear, let your hands be strong.”
Obadiah 1:10 “For your (Esau – a type of the modern Palestinians) violence against your brother Jacob (Jews) shame shall cover you, and you shall be cut off forever.”
Genesis 15:18 “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river Euphrates.”
Genesis 17:7-8 “I will establish My covenant between Me and you (Abraham) and your descendants for an everlasting covenant, also I will give to your descendants the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan as an everlasting possession and I will be their God.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
Edition 217. July 23rd 2014
The tragic consequences of removing Bible prophecy:
The tragic consequences of removing Bible prophecy:
If you remove, downplay or allegorise Bible prophecy, there are many tragic consequences.
Let’s define our terms: Bible prophecy is also referred to as “end-time” teaching, or “last- days” teaching, or its theological name, “eschatology” which is simply the study of end-time Biblical events.
It includes the study and teaching of all the Bible verses that have a predictive nature to them. This includes verses relating to the close of the Church age, the rapture, the tribulation period, the coming of antichrist, all the events of the tribulation period, the wrath of God, the Second Coming, the Millennium and the eternity of eternities. It includes the study of heaven, hell and all other things relating to our near and long-term future.
27% of the Bible is prophetic in nature. It begins in Genesis and is found in every book of the Bible. Not all unfulfilled Bible prophecy is eschatological though.
Bible prophecy in history:
Bible prophecy in the Old Covenant has a 100% literal fulfilment record. Not one missed and many were very detailed. Bible prophecy of the New Covenant which has been fulfilled up to this point in time also has a 100% literal fulfilment record.
Now as we look at the prophecies of the entire Bible, we see a consistent pattern of literal fulfilment with not one miss. This has powerful implications for the remaining prophecies still to be fulfilled. You are gambling against immeasurable odds if you think the self-same pattern of 100% literal fulfilment will not continue!
Amazingly, we are seeing these remaining, unfulfilled prophecies starting to come about now.
Bible prophecy in many ways is the eyes of the Church.
The prophecy of the world:
If you reject or downplay Bible prophecy you will, whether you like it or not, be subject to the “prophecy” of the world – and that’s a guarantee!
God’s prophecies come from His heart and mouth and are true. The world’s prophecies are formed and fashioned by the god of the world – Satan and are the root of error.
Here are some of the world’s prophecies: ●All roads lead to God. ●The Bible has no validity in today’s world. ●What is important is the group-speak of the world in which the world’s mass-media is the supreme guide of virtues and values and what is right or wrong. ●Do what the majority says. ●Hollywood and its celebrities must be well-worshipped. ●Give the Palestinians what they demand and want because it is legitimate. ●God has no future plans of any description for Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews. ●World peace is coming soon on the wings of a two-state solution for Israel and the Palestinians. ● Islam is a peace-loving religion. ●Biblical Christianity is the true enemy and must be destroyed.
Bible prophecy is supernatural and miraculous in origin and fulfilment. If you remove it, not only will your world be filled with deadly error, it will also have an element of emptiness about it.
The big central issue:
►If you have no end- times, you do have continuing times. That’s logical isn’t it?
If you have a world of continuing times, you have to make it pretty! You must love your world and make it sustainable, not so? You must make peace with your continuing world.
2 Peter 3:3-4 “In the last days scoffers will come saying, ‘where is the hope of His coming? all things will continue as they have...”
The removal of end times – is the most dangerous thing you can do.
Partial removal of eschatology is just as big a problem. You’ve heard all the, “no one knows the time” chants? They believe in certain things about end- time prophecy, but have this universal wolf-cry, “No one knows the time, brother!” What they are really saying is “don’t bother trying to know – all things will continue as normal”!
If you reject Bible prophecy you will have to be led, by the world’s media. The media will be your eyes and ears. They will tell you what’s going on out there. The god of this world, Satan, will be your guide and instructor.
He will use his servants in the media to inform you and fill you with his ways.
Many with no knowledge of prophecy will give up on God when the great shaking of the whole world begins.
Evil will soon reach epic proportions, never before seen. Are you ready?
1 Corinthians 15:19 “If Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins...if in this life only we have hope in Christ we are of all men most pitiable.”
The verse above is the lot of many, or should I say even most people today. Without the wonderful prophetic truths of God’s word alive in your heart, you are most pitiable!!
The prophetic time clock
Bible prophecy has its dramatic, monumental climax in the very soon- coming destruction of Satan’s world with all his demonic cohorts. It is a burning fuse! If you play around with a bomb and you don’t know or can’t see that the fuse is burning, you are going to get blown up.
Bible prophecy is God’s safety net. It is His miraculous rescue plan. It is His act of love.
Remove Bible prophecy and you will see none of this.
How many churches do you know that continuously preach the same world-friendly messages week after week in the face of current unfolding prophetic events? What a disgusting shame! How many churches do you know, who in this day, constantly preach on self-esteem, self-motivation, self, glorification, self love and worldly success, while Bible prophecy begins to unfold around us? What a disgusting situation!
Prophecy and time:
A hundred or thousand years ago the issues of the coming of our Lord were not as important as they are now. As we get closer to the time, so our Lord reveals more and more about the time and the urgency to be ready.
Daniel 12:9 “Go your way Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.”
Prophecy is sealed until the time of the end, but bear in mind that there is another side to the story. If you are not open to God you are in danger. Both Satan and God will blind you!
As our Lord pours out His Spirit of understanding of end-time things, so the spirit of antichrist pours out his understanding, designed to lead you astray.
Do you think God would not blind people? Think again and read on!
The following verses are shocking and little known in this day:
2 Corinthians 4:3-4 "Our gospel is hidden to them that are lost in whom the god of this world (Satan) has blinded the eyes of them who believe not."
2 Thessalonians 2:11 “God will send them strong delusion so that they will believe the lie.”
Isaiah 44:18 “They do not know nor understand, for He (God) has shut their eyes so that they can’t see and shut and darkened their hearts so that they can’t understand.”
Obadiah 3 “The pride and arrogance of your heart has blinded and deceived you.”
Proverbs 1:24-26 “Because I have called and you have refused, I have stretched out My hand and no one regarded, because you have disdained all My counsel , and would have none of My reproof . I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your terror comes.”
Isaiah 1:15 “When you spread out your hands, I will hide My eyes from you; even though you make many prayers, I will not hear you. Your hands are full of blood.”
Isaiah 59:2 “Your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.”
Jeremiah 14:10-11 “They have loved to wander and have not restrained their feet, therefore the Lord does not accept them...Do not pray for this people, for their good.”
Do you see that there are qualifications before you can hear the voice of God? Do you also see that both God and the devil are in the business of blinding and closing the ears of certain types?
With Bible prophecy missing in your life, you are an empty gong, with as much significance. You will go into the future as a rudderless ship. You will be unholy and dirty and will always battle to overcome evil and sin.
Your opinions on most things will be meaningless.
If you are not open to receive all Bible prophecy willingly, unambiguously and immediately, you will also be a doubter and rejecter of many other Biblical truths. You need to have an open heart to allow God into every “room” of your life.
Prophecy as law:
Bible prophecy is the grand “I told you so.”
You can’t be fined for breaking a law of the road that doesn’t exist. But you can be fined for breaking a law that is in the statute books and displayed on the road signs!
Bible prophecy plots the course of the age (Ephesians 2:2) and all the details in between. The Bible says of the unbeliever that “they are without excuse.” (Romans 1:20)
The purpose of Bible prophecy is to lead, guide, inform, warn, judge, reward and prove the veracity of God’s word.
There is a powerful evil spirit at work behind the removal of Bible prophecy. It leaves you in a world of lawlessness, where there are no absolutes and anything goes. You can’t live right with wrong believing and thinking.
When people stand before God in judgment, they will have no legitimate excuse. Ignorance of the law (God’s word) is not acceptable.
Everyone who rejects any aspect of the word of God has a big surprise coming with eternal consequences.
You can’t break God’s law. It will break you!
How many times have you said to yourself, “If I knew that I wouldn’t have done it” or “If only I could turn the clock back?” It is Bible prophecy that alerts us to things to come, giving us confidence to go forward.
The most powerful quotes in the world:
These are the words of Adolf Hitler. They are the principles of CNN, Sky, BBC and all the world’s mass media. They all use these Hitler- principles repeatedly and few can even see it. The modern media have a secret agenda. They all have the desire to do and present the desire of their boss- Satan.
These are the unseen tools of the modern media’s trade, fermented in the heart of Hitler. They are designed to manipulate you into and under their control. Ancient Jezebel spirits, Sodomite spirits and the evil spirits of a host of evil gods hidden in camouflage are behind the news media of this day.
Hitler: “Make the lie big, make it simple and keep saying it, and eventually the people will believe it. Tell the lie big enough and frequently enough and it will be believed.”
“How fortunate for governments that people don’t think! It is not truth that matters, but victory.”
These simple but profound Hitler quotes are at work in the world’s media and are as real today as ever!
Nearly everyone blindly accepts these Hitler methods today and they can’t see it. This is the power of Satan’s prophecies at work. If you know Bible prophecy you have less chance of being influenced by the spirit of Hitler in the mass media.
How to judge Bible prophecy teachers:
Beware of those who claim that the Lord speaks to them in an audible voice. Beware of male ministers in dresses. Beware of those who insist on being called by special titles like “father, mother” or others.
Beware of novices in the Lord, claiming to be teachers, who do not know their Bible backwards and do not know the voice of the Spirit of God. Beware of those who use manipulation to gain a following.
If you have avoided Bible prophecy out of ignorance or because you are a new convert, or the like, that’s fine. But if you ignore and remove Bible prophecy deliberately due to the fact that you don’t like it or you are under the deception of your church, you are almost beyond help!
One of the ways of examining or judging a church to see if you should get involved is this: What is their attitude to and place of Bible prophecy?
We don’t all need to agree on every little detail, but the major issues and milestones of prophecy, there must be agreement on.
This is the forerunner era of prophetic fulfilment. The great tragedy of the time is that very few churches include anything at all on prophecy. They are the blind leading the blind!
Too many, especially pastors, are too deeply entrenched in Babylon to change and many are too chicken to do so anyway! So they toe the line of denominationalism, or of the church fathers, or of the anti-Semite reformers and they remain trapped, powerless and blind. Of course they would never admit it. “We believe the Bible”, they proclaim, but as with most, its only the bits that suit them and support their beliefs.
Pastors if you do not teach Bible prophecy you are responsible for blinding your flock. You have stabbed them in their eyes! Prophecy is the eyes of the church. We are commanded to “know the time and season.” I remember the first time I read the Bible from cover to cover I was shocked. “Why is most of this foreign in the church”, I thought. “Why have I never heard one word of these things preached or taught?”
At this critical, dramatic juncture in world history, God is pouring out His knowledge more and more. He is revealing many things, previously unknown, especially in the area of prophecy. But this is also the time of growing deception and deep spiritual darkness
The TBN founder forbade their members from saying anything critical of Islam a few years back. Now his mascara-laden wife, the new head of the organisation, has taken it one deadly step further by forbidding members from preaching on eschatology.
To remain silent is in the face of evil implicates you as a participant. To say nothing is to speak! To do nothing is to act!
Very soon we will see many of the TBN group of churches go the wrong way in their new- found blindness. We will see many of them become anti-Israel, pro-homosexual and standing for Interfaith.
Turning against Israel has a spiritual root. It is all part of the giant “spirit of error”. It is essentially rejection of God’s choice.
Bible prophecy and Israel:
Bible prophecy outlines and speaks of the miracle of Israel and the Jewish people. It speaks of the blood-stained thread from Adam to Abraham, to Israel, to the Messiah, and to the Second Coming of Messiah.
If you remove all of this you are going to be in a world of confusion ruled by the opinions of man rooted in Satan.
You may have noticed the amazing quantity and frequency of mass-media bias, junk, hogwash and pure error about Israel on the go now. And people swallow the garbage.
You may have noticed that I’ve intentionally presented you with God’s plan for Israel in the last few editions. I’ve clearly laid out the origins of the conflict and the answer as revealed in dozens of prophecies.
The previous editions, “I stand with God’s word for Israel”, “The principles of war,” and “Deadly messages from antiquity” have a flow to them. They all deal with God’s supernatural plan and purposes for Israel in the past, present and into the future. If you have not done so, please read those editions, they are of major importance now.
Israel is the spine of prophecy and if the spine is out of place, the other skeletal bones will also be out. If Bible prophecy relating to Israel is out of place, your entire world will be disjointed! If the spine is in place, everything else is securely in its right place.
Make no mistake; we are now on the edge of the most dramatic times the world has ever seen. You had better know your stuff. You had better know spirits and how to identify and deal with them. These critical days will see many people swept into hell. We are the terminal generation!
Winston Churchill “Some people like the Jews and other do not. But no thoughtful man can deny the fact that they are, beyond doubt or question, the most formidable and most remarkable race which has appeared in the world.”
A distorted world-view:
With Bible prophecy and all of its implications removed you will have a distorted world view. You will see the world through your own eyes. You will not see all the dangers.
If you are in the light you are not in the darkness! Before you scream at me for stating the obvious – it is so far from the obvious, you have no idea!
If you are truly surrendered in brokenness and humility to the Spirit of the living God, you will see things His way. You will gain knowledge, understanding and wisdom and you will see wonderful things too magnificent to describe. Confusion will die and glorious clarity will spring to life.
You will be amazed that others can’t see the light or the darkness. You will wonder why they don’t see the devil lurking in the four corners of the world! As you grow in the wonderful things of God, you will see with clarity! Your eye-sight will become magnificently clear.
The Bible deepens with age. The Bible does not reveal its secrets to the casual enquirer or the curious!
The miracle of Bible prophecy:
Bible prophecy is one of the most important “tools” for proving the veracity of the Bible. It is one of the most powerful “tools” of evangelism today, simply because everyone wants to know what is in the future for them.
Past prophetic fulfilment is truly miraculous. Only our God who knows the end from the beginning could proclaim it in His word.
So, with this miracle in mind, if you remove it, you remove the supernatural element to prophecy and end up with your own blind, essentially dumb, stupid, worldly views and opinions of things. You are then simply as boring as a man-made brick.
What you must do:
Seek God and accept His salvation offered to each one as a free gift. The set your heart and soul to study and know God’s prophetic word. Align yourself with our Lord and His truth. Find some of the deeper teachers on prophecy and study them. The monumental book “Things to come” by Dwight Pentecost (Zondervan), is a good place to start.
All roads do not lead to Rome! All roads lead to judgement – The Bible tells me so! Bible prophecy spells out the glorious future for those who are His, and the terrible, disastrous eternity for those who reject God and His word.
The Bible gives purpose to living. There are many things in the Bible that you do need to understand, but there some things you dare not misunderstand!
Don’t mess with Bible prophecy! You are messing with God!
The Lion of the tribe of Judah:
Revelation 5:5 “Do not weep. Behold the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the root of David has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seals.”
Romans 11:12 “Consider both the goodness and severity of God.”
I took this picture in the beautiful Namib Desert, Namibia, in one of the numerous dead tree pans. I used a Hasselblad medium format camera. If you would like to see some more pictures of this incredible desert, click Here.
Isaiah 43:19 “Behold I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth, I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the deserts.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
Edition 216. July 16th 2014
I stand with God’s word for Israel:
I stand with God’s word for Israel:
This edition is my own personal thoughts and stand on these issues.
In so doing, I wish to renew my commitment to God’s word for the Jews as huge pressure begins to mount. I want to simply identify myself unambiguously with God’s word for Israel, and against their and God’s enemies.
I want to take it further though and give you the opportunity to do the same if you feel so led. All you need to do is go before our Lord in prayer and reinforce your agreement with His word. It’s also a good idea to write the vision and speak it. Make a proclamation of it. The spirit world has ears and eyes! Do take a deliberate calculated stand for God’s word; He will take note of it.
By way of testimony, I often used to take a group up to the top of high mountains and we would sit there and speak, sing and shout our proclamations into the spirit-filled air. Sometimes I would go up into the mountains alone for this purpose.
Your silence or disagreement with God’s word is also a stand – make no mistake!
You can just read this edition, or let it have eternal consequences for you by your identification with our Lord and His present and future plans.
Who started the fight?
When I was at school occasionally the fight would be sorted out behind the school! One would say, “He started the fight”, and the other would say, “No he did”. Either way, it got sorted out via fisticuffs and blood noses.
We need to go back to origins to find out who started it, but let’s also get into a time-machine and see who ends the fight and why, as well.
If we have both the historical and future factors in favour of one side, the evidence demands a verdict in favour of the one and not the other. Let’s remember that we are now not dealing with the opinions of some insane God-rejecting, homosexual- loving, European or US government member, but God Himself and His word.
Born badly deformed:
Today most Christians are born-again in some church and become fashioned and formed into a half- body. They have little or no identification with their origins in the Jews, the Jewish Messiah, the soon to be saved Jews and the coming Jew of all Jews, the King of Kings.
If our Lord were to walk into most churches today, He would not know what sort of place it is!
The so-called church fathers, the reformers and modern churches have been very successful in re-characterising the church. It has been painted with a Catholic brush, instead of the original Hebraic brush.
As such, the modern church is largely blind to Bible prophecy being fulfilled right now. But because of this, the church has also turned against God’s plans specifically for Israel in this regard.
If you haven’t realised it yet, almost all of Bible prophecy relates to and is centred around the Jews and their land.
A big abortion:
The church is performing the world’s biggest ongoing abortion right now! It is the rejection of the unborn Jews!
The new birth is a birth. It’s a spiritual birth into the Olive tree, which is a type of God’s kingdom. But the Olive tree has two types of branches. Romans 11 speaks of the natural branch and the wild olive branch. It identifies the natural branch as Jews, temporarily cut off from the tree, later to be grafted in, and the wild olive branch, which are the Gentile believers, now grafted in by grace. The roots and the tree trunk are the Kingdom of God.
It is only true born-again believers, Gentiles and Jews, who make up the branches.
Please note that Gentile believers are grafted into this Jewish tree, full of Hebraic characteristics. Jews are not grafted into some Gentile Catholic or Calvinist tree!
Today the church is largely deformed. It has rejected its Hebraic roots and the Jewish branches, which are about to be grafted in again. In many ways, the Jews at large are today in the womb, so to speak. They are soon to come to salvation.
Today we see significant prophetic developments in the Middle East and Israel in particular. How many churches do you know teaching and preaching God’s word on this current, now-subject? How many messages do you hear on the subject on Christian radio and TV? There are almost none!
But these blind preachers continue to preach and teach on how you can have your needs met, on how to make prayer work for you, on how to find your life in the world and be a nice happy Christian chappie! They ignore and reject what God is doing now, prophetically.
They have no idea how far they have missed God.
In many ways we are part of Israel, so its a lot more than an external issue. As true believers we join Jewish believers and become the true Israel of God. This doesn’t mean that God doesn’t deal with the Jew and the Church separately. In fact the truth is the opposite of replacement theology.
The true spiritual Jew is the Gentile and Jewish believer. It is restrictive and not inclusive as in replacement theology.
If you have seen the light you are not in the dark!
2 Corinthians 4:3-4 “Even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of the age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Messiah, who is the image of God, should shine in.”
Isaiah 44:18 “They do not know nor understand, for He has shut their eyes, so that they cannot see, and their hearts so that they cannot understand.”
If you are still in the dark, you have not seen the Light, no matter what you might think. Those of and in the flesh can’t see the Spirit or the things of the Spirit of God.
Abraham had a child of the flesh and a child of the Spirit. The one produced the Arab nations and the other the Jews. Those in and of the flesh always see the rights of the Palestinians and not the rights and place of the Jews! What you believe on this issue shows whether you are in the Spirit or the flesh!
The big problems today are ignorance of God’s word, the love of the world’s word and a hard heart before God and His word. These together will guarantee your blindness and free ride to hell.
Isaiah 8:20-22 “...If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them...Then they will be enraged and curse their king and their God and look upward. Then they will look to the earth, and see trouble and darkness, gloom of anguish; and they will be driven into darkness.”
Spiritual blindness and the spirit of error go together with the antichrist spirit. The spirit of antichrist is preparing his people and the apostate church for the coming of antichrist. The world cannot receive the Spirit of truth, but it automatically receives the spirit of error. God hardens the hearts of those who reject the truth!
Before the return of our Lord, there will be and is already a famine of the word of God.
The Jews are a people of destiny with an eternal enemy:
The diagram below shows God’s choice in blue (children of the Spirit).The names in red are those who were not chosen by God to fulfil His covenant (children of the flesh).This is not a complete representation.
The Jews have one distinctive feature, so powerful they are loved and hated by the whole world. The Catholic church hates the Jews as a result and have tried to steal this treasure exclusively for themselves. The treasure is our Messiah. That is the mark of distinction upon the Jews past, present and future.
The entire issue surrounding the regathering of the Jews to their land and the coming of the Jewish Messiah is spiritual. Satan opposes this return, just as he did the first coming. You can’t separate the issue of the Jews, their land, and Jerusalem from the coming of Messiah. The Book, the People and the Land are inextricably linked.
Here are some of the many verses which make up the diagram above.
Genesis 27:38-41 “Then Isaac the father (of Esau) said: ‘Behold your dwelling shall be of the fatness of the earth, and of the dew of heaven above. By your sword you shall live, and you shall serve your brother (Jacob)...so Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing with which his father had blessed him (Jacob)...the days of mourning for my father are at hand; then I will kill my brother Jacob.”
Genesis 17:19-21 “Sarah, your wife shall bear a son and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him. And as for Ishmael, I have heard you. Behold I have blessed him and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall beget twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation. But My covenant I will establish with Isaac.”
The two sons of Abraham, Esau and Jacob were at odds with each from the womb, but the antagonism really developed when Esau sold his birthright to Jacob for a meal.
Obadiah 1:10 “For your violence (Esau) against your brother Jacob, shame shall cover you and you shall be cut off forever.” (The original word for “violence” is ‘Hamas’)
Obadiah 1:15-18 “For the day of the Lord upon all nations is near; as you (Arabs) have done, it shall be done to you; your reprisal shall return upon your own head. For as you drank on my holy mountain, so shall all the nations drink continually and they shall be as though they never had been. But on Mount Zion there shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness, the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions. The house of Jacob shall be a fire and the house of Joseph a flame; but the house of Esau shall be stubble...and no survivor shall remain of the house of Esau, for the Lord has spoken.”
Here is the end game!
Ezekiel 35:5-6 “Because you have an ancient hatred, and have shed the blood of the children of Israel by the power of the sword at the time of their calamity , when their iniquity came to an end, therefore as I live says the Lord God, ‘I will prepare you for blood and blood will pursue you...”
The common cries of the world’s wolves:
As we look to the Israeli / Palestinian issues unless, you have been on Mars for the last few years, you would know that there are many consistent, infuriating, recurring themes and statements, supported and in many cases perpetrated by the world’s mass media, like CNN:
●The problem is the Israeli occupation.
●The Jews are racists.
● Israel is an apartheid state.
● Israel is to blame for the aggression and collective punishment of the Palestinians.
●The Palestinians are innocent victims of illegitimate racist settlers.
●If Israel is to use any response it must use a proportional response.
●The world must intervene to stop Israel.
The Palestinians and their satanic brothers, the mass media, are universally consistent in these chants!
These are the days of the greatness of God, victory for His family, excitement, depth, destiny, drama, gravity. These are the days of seriousness, holiness and of great glory.
These are the days of destruction, defeat, deception, depravity, failure, error, evil, hatred, regret and tragedy. These are the days of unfolding fierce, fiery wrath. These are the days of the bewitchment of self- obsession and emptiness.
These are the days of screeching, howling wolves in the pulpit, fulfilling the ways of the world, the flesh and the demonic.
These are the days of God’s quiet whisper of truth into your heart, and the outpouring of His love and grace to those who are His, and would open themselves to it.
Isaiah 62:1 “For Zion’s sake I will not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her righteousness goes forth like brightness and her salvation as a lamp that burns.”
The world’s mass media is Satan’s voice. They hear him, do his will and serve him excellently.
It’s very easy to get the world to support the Palestinians against Israel because the world is stupid! The world serves a god who hates them and will suck them into hell. That’s not very clever is it? The world’s media indoctrinates you from the cradle to the grave, unless you see it and break from its stronghold.
Proverbs 28:4 “Those who forsake the law (word of God) praise the wicked.”
Blindness and deafness come by following the media, but according to the verses above they come from God and the devil as well. Talk about being blinded!
Israel’s biggest enemies:
It’s the church! Do you know how many churches teach and prepare their people for these things? How many do you know who preach on these things? I know some pastors personally and know of many others who would never dare touch these subjects!
They preach on faith, prayer, prosperity, personal success, motivation, self gratification and all such things. God is working to bring His people, the Jews to salvation and the church sits in its cursed pews with its stupid mouth shut except for its messages of self-indulgence.
These churches howl from the pulpit that they have access to God. “Your prayer will create your world for you”, they say. “We have the power to get wealth,” they say. But why do they remain silent on the issue of Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews – just as the Catholics were silent in the Holocaust?
God’ work of judgment and salvation is about to go into high gear and the church who can influence both is playing games with itself and the devil, avoiding, ignoring and even coming against God in these things!
You churches of replacement theology – you are God’s enemy and the devils friend and you can’t even see it!
Perhaps the largest community of witchcraft- driven deception in the world are the churches of Europe.
The churches (all of them) now on TBN have come under the spell of their mascara-laden lady leader. She has forbidden them from preaching on eschatology (end-time events). Of course the reason for this is that without teaching on these things your focus switches to the continuing world.
TBN is now silent on this the most important and dramatic time of world history. Silence makes you complicit. It does not make you innocent.
The Lion is coming and He’s a Jewish Lion and He is angry!
Zechariah 2:8 “...He who touches you (Israel) touches the apple of His eye.”
Israel will be punished:
The title of this edition is not “I stand with Israel.” It is “I stand with God’s word for Israel.” There is a big difference. You see, it’s not going to be plain sailing for Israel. God will bring them to victory ultimately and to glorious salvation, but at the same time God will use in the most terrible times ever to bring the Jews to repentance.
Jeremiah 46:28 “Do not fear, O Jacob My servant, says the Lord, for I am with you; for I will make a complete end of all nations to which I have driven you, but I will not make a complete end of you, I will rightly correct you, for I will not leave you wholly unpunished.”
Ezekiel 20:34 “I will bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you are scattered, with a mighty hand, with an outstretched arm, and with My fury poured out.”
The answer is peace. It is not a two-state solution. It is not an Arab solution, nor is it the solutions of the UN nor the US or the UK. It is God’s one-state solution – His way. That is the way to peace.
Psalm 21:8-12 Your hand will find all Your enemies; Your right hand will find those who hate You. You shall make them as a fiery oven in the time of Your anger; The Lord shall swallow them up in His wrath, and the fire shall devour them. Their offspring You shall destroy from the earth, and their descendants from among the sons of men. For they intended evil against You; they devised a plot that they were not able to perform. Therefore You will make them turn their backs; You will make ready Your arrows on Your bowstring towards their faces.”
2 Chronicles 15:3-4 “For a long time Israel has been without the true God, without a teaching priest and without the law. But when in their trouble they turned to the Lord God of Israel, and sought Him, He was found by them.”
This Israel issue is of monumental importance. It is a heaven or hell issue. It’s all deeply spiritually charged and you need spiritual eyes to even see it in the first place. In the coming days, it will become a lot more spiritually charged.
What you must do:
Study your Bible. Read Bible prophecy. Read and study the major and minor prophets. Pray about it all. Identify yourself with God’s word. Do it demonstrably!
Understand that the invisible forces surrounding these issues are far stronger than you. Know that you have no chance at all to stand against them in your own strength, power or reasoning.
Understand that this is all an issue of spiritual warfare, with a glorious end result!
Before our Lord’s first coming, Herod had all the male Jews under two killed to prevent His coming. Don’t you think the modern Herods will try the same thing? They most certainly will do so, led by their gods, the modern media.
Will you stand with your soon –to- be- born, coming brothers and sisters?
The Olive Tree.
Jeremiah 17:8 “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is in the Lord. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its root by the river, and will not fear when heat comes...nor will cease yielding fruit.”
Luke 6:43 “For a good tree does not produce bad fruit, nor does a bad tree produce good fruit.”
I took this picture in the spectacular Etosha Game Reserve, one of the biggest in the world (22,200 sq.km), in Namibia. This picture speaks of desolation. If you would like to see some more pictures of this amazing place, click Here.
Deuteronomy 8:2 “You shall remember that the Lord your God led you all the way these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you and test you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
Edition 215. July 9nd 2014
Post tribulation rapture problems: Part two:
Post tribulation rapture problems: Part two:
In this edition I want to look at further post- tribulation rapture arguments and show just how they fail. Some of the arguments they present are compelling and some extremely short-sighted and not even worthy of comment.
If you combine this edition with 210, which is part one, the evidence in favour of a pre-tribulation rapture becomes overwhelming.
Enoch and the rapture:
Enoch is by far the best type of the pre-tribulation rapture. He was raptured alive in a flash into heaven, before God’s flood of judgment upon the earth in Noah’s time. I don’t believe that God does things like this without a significant purpose or message.
Genesis 5:24 “And Enoch walked with God; and he was not for God took him.”
Hebrews 11:5 “By faith Enoch was translated so that he did not see death, and was not found because God had translated him; for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.”
The word ‘Enoch” means ‘dedicated.’
Now, let’s look a little deeper into Enoch.
Jude1:14 “Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men, also, saying, ‘Behold the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgment...”
In this verse Enoch sees the Second Coming judgement on the ungodly, the depraved, and the doomed. But note that our Lord is seen returning with many “saints”. The original word used here is never used for angels. It is only used for true believers and this is consistent!
“Saints,” used here is the Greek word ‘Hagios’ (Strongs G40 = Holy one), one separated from sin and dedicated to God.
There is no doubt that this word refers to true believers and not angels as is claimed by some post- tribbers.
Note that it is Enoch, the dedicated one, who himself was raptured before judgement on the world, who now teaches that the dedicated separated ones (saints) return with our Lord at the Second Coming! That, of course can only occur if these saints are in heaven to start with!
This verse alone is a powerful supporter of the pre-tribulation rapture.
Post-trib rapture rubbish:
●One of the arguments presented by the post tribbers is that the promise of land to Israel was fulfilled in 1350BC by Joshua and Solomon. The presumption is that none of the Biblical land promises are relevant today and Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews are simply the same as any other nation.
Obviously this is one of the roots of replacement theology, but more than that, it denies dozens of prophetic scriptures. They use this argument to claim that God will not rapture the Church as a separate entity from the Jews at large. They claim that the church is spiritual Israel. They like to claim the blessing of God but ignore the associated curses.
The church is not spiritual Israel and never has been. Israel is never used in scripture as the church. Israel is used in a restricted sense. In other words only those Jews who have faith in Messiah are part of the Church and not other way around. See Romans 9:6, Galatians 6:16.
●Another common post-trib view is that Christians are God’s true Jews and there is therefore no specific separate dealing with the Jews.
For this to be possible, allegorical interpretation of scripture must be applied and hundreds of verses just explained away.
●Many people surprisingly point to rapture prediction failures as a reason to claim that there will be no pre-tribulation rapture.
Yes there have been many predictive failures, but that does no harm to the command of God in numerous passages to watch, pray, and be ready. In fact the Bible says that as we approach the time, His watchmen will “see eye to eye” (Isaiah 52:8).Today there are more and more watchmen appearing on the scene and in agreement on a pre-tribulation rapture.
The above post-trib points require the dangerous allegorical method of interpretation to get rid of Israel and replace her with the church. These individuals become God’s editor!
Perhaps the biggest problem with the above points is that all fly in the face of exactly what is happening before our eyes now in reality. They would say that it’s just coincidence.
Matthew 19:28 “Assuredly I say to you, that in the regeneration, when the Son of Man sits on the throne of His glory, you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.”
Tribulation saints go into the Millennium with resorted longevity, but still with natural bodies. If we are to have a post- tribulation rapture, this means all believers will be in the same boat. But what do you do with all the verses of true believers receiving glorified, supernatural bodies?
Scripture requires people with supernatural, resurrected bodies and people in natural bodies in the Millennium.
Post tribbers have no explanation for the giant U-turn!
The image above explains the two views succinctly.
There are far too many verses of scripture that simply don’t fit the big U-turn belief, besides the fact of its pointlessness.
Daniel chapter nine explains the all-important seventy- weeks prophecy.
It is speaking of weeks of years, not days. I’m not going to get into all the calculations here; suffice to say that the Bible divides the time into sixty nine weeks of years and the final seven weeks of years. The first sixty nine weeks of years deal specifically with the Jews and Israel. The last seven weeks of years are clearly the tribulation period.
Although there is a separation between the sixty nine and the seventieth, they are the same in character. In other words, both deal exclusively with the Jews. The Church is not in the sixty nine weeks of years, nor will it be in the seventieth.
That’s an odd heading isn’t it?
The rapture of the Church as described in 1 Corinthians 15:51 takes place in a “moment in a twinkling of an eye” The original Greek word used for “moment” is “atomo” which is the shortest or quickest instant in time. It is an “atomic” moment. It occurs so fast no one sees it.
Believers are snatched up to meet the Lord in the air in an atomic moment. He descends into the clouds for this event, but does not return to the earth.
Now, at the Second Coming the picture is completely different!
Our Lord descends in the same manner as He departed, which is slowly, through the clouds with all eyes upon Him. He returns to and puts His feet on the Mount of Olives, from whence He left.
There is an irreconcilable difference in the description of these two events. They can’t be and are not the same event. They are distinctly separate by the speed of the events, the place of the events and the people concerned.
The first is for the Church, the second is with the Church.
The great realisation:
A pre-tribulation rapture will produce a great shock on all those left behind. They will have to come up with some explanation. The devil may provide this in the form of a UFO invasion which has taken born-again believers or something like that.
The immediate disappearance of true believers will cause a sudden searching of hearts by all left behind. But it will also turn many against God. Later in the tribulation we see the full manifestation of this as people, knowing that God is causing the judgements, curse and blaspheme God:
Revelation 16:21 “...They blasphemed God because of the plague...”
►The rapture will be a big shock for many. It will bring them to the instant realisation that God judges and they have been found wanting! The rapture itself will be one of the big causes of mass repentance upon this world.
There is no rapture at the end of the tribulation!
The Bible does not describe a rapture at the end of the tribulation anywhere. There is no such verse. There are verses showing the “rapture” of the wicked into hell, but nothing that can be described as an atomic snatching to meet the Lord in the air.
The only way the post-tribbers can “meet the Lord” is by taking pre-tribulation verses and making them fit at the end of the tribulation... and they simply don’t fit!
Post- tribbers have to use an illogical argument. They must believe that our Lord descends from heaven, then somewhere around cloud height the rapture must take place. They must then take part in a marriage feast in heaven, be rewarded and have a good time in heaven. This must all take place in the time- period between our Lord’s descent to earth, and His feat touching the Mount of Olives. (See the giant U-turn diagram above.)
Why does the Bible differentiate between the two comings with our Lord’s feet? Why does the Bible say our Lord’s feet actually touch the Mount of Olives at the Second Coming? It’s to make a clear difference between the two comings. At the rapture our Lord’s feet do not come into the picture. He descends as far as the clouds to receive us into heaven.
A short-sighted injustice:
After the messages to the seven churches in the opening three chapters of the book of Revelation there is no further account of the Church on the earth. Chapter four onwards describes the tribulation period. We do see many people being “saved” in the tribulation, but these are not part of the Church. These are what we call tribulation saints.
From chapter four onwards we see saved Jews performing the work of evangelism. We see a distinctly Jewish flavour of the time. There are no apostles, evangelists, pastors etc. There are 144000 saved Jews, and two Jewish witnesses all doing the work of the ministry. Where is the Church?
The absence of the Church and presence of the Jews doing the work of the Church in the tribulation verses is of profound importance. Don’t let people fool you into believing otherwise. (I have never read or heard a reasonable explanation for this from the post- tribbers – ever!)
A fact just as important is the presence of the Church in heaven during this time, being rewarded and participating in the “marriage feast.”
Some post -tribbers explain the absence of the Church in the Revelation from chapter four onwards this way: They say that Revelation is not in chronological order, so you can’t refer to believers in heaven, because that could fit in anywhere in time, because there is no chronological order.
Sorry, that’s not true. It most certainly is in chronological order from day one to the end, 2520 days later. The Revelation begins with the tribulation, runs through all the judgements to the mid- tribulation point, and ends with the climactic events of the Second Coming.
Obviously there are some things that are allegorical and apply to any time- period, but you can’t apply allegory to whatever suits you!
The big shock
The rapture will not be for all professing Christians. It will only be those truly born of the Spirit of God and those who are truly His. (eg. Matthew 7:21-23.)The rapture will show who is who in the zoo! It will separate between so-called believers who have no experience of an indwelling Lord. It will separate between the human good and the Godly good!
The rapture will not be for all those who believe in God. It will be for those who are born- again by the Spirit of God and those who believe in Yeshua as the one and only God. It will only be for those who have been saved by the shed blood of Yeshua and the work of the cross of Calvary.
It will not be for those who believe in many ways to God. It will not be for those who believe that other gods have a valid road to heaven.
The rapture will not be for vampire blood-drinkers or cannibals. It is the Catholic church that believes in transubstantiation, which is the wine becoming the actual blood of Yeshua when they drink it at communion. They believe that the bread becomes the actual body of Messiah when they eat it (or Him)!
The Catholics do not teach a pre-tribulation rapture. They believe in the witch-tale of purgatory as a purifying force.
Isaiah 42:16 “I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known; I will make darkness light before them."
1Thessalonians 5:4 "You brethren are not in darkness that the Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all children of light."
1 Corinthians 2:9 “Eye has not seen nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those that love Him”
I took this picture early in the morning on foot in my favourite place, the world’s biggest inland river delta, the Okavango in Botswana. I’ve been fortunate to travel and work (photo/journalism) there hundreds of times. I’ve also led and been involved with numerous mission trips to the surrounding villages as well as to the secretive, nomadic, Xuun (Kung) river Bushmen, who dwell on some of the large islands. (The 15,000sqkm Okavango has just become a world heritage site.) If you want to see some more images of this amazing place, click Here.
Isaiah 44:22 “I have blotted out like a thick cloud, your transgressions and like a mist, your sins. Return to Me for I have redeemed you.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
Edition 214. July 2nd 2014
The principles of war:
The principles of war:
This is a very important and timely edition. We are on the verge of major prophesied wars breaking out in the Middle East and between Russia and surrounding nations. The US will be drawn in. Israel will be drawn in. World war is on the doorstep.
I’m bringing you this edition now to lay a foundation for the dramatic times we are about enter.
Imagine going to war where the outcome has been pre-determined and spelt out with 100% accuracy! Talk about having the odds stacked against you!
In this edition I want to have a look at the principles of war – all from a biblical perspective. Much of this will surprise you. You have most probably never read or heard a teaching like this before!
We will look at some incredible verses of Bible prophecy that will strengthen your faith or turn you against God.
Psalm 120:7 “I am for peace but when I speak they are for war.”
A nation under God:
God, in His wisdom has set up principles for a strong nation. They still do apply, but today few nations are “under God” and are set for destruction as a result.
Isaiah 60:12 “For the nation and kingdom that will not serve you (Israel) in that day shall perish; yes they shall utterly be laid waste.”
I’m not talking about a theocracy, but there are certain Biblical principles which need to be applied by any nation. The constitution of a nation must have a higher “court”, which is God’s word. In fact all law in all western nations comes from and was founded on the Ten Commandments.
Church, state and family are the foundational pillars on which a nation stands. Today all three institutions have been eroded, attacked and interfered with. If you remove any one of the three legs of a tripod it will fall.
A nation under God will be one in which freedom and liberty is present. But beware; freedom is not freedom if it allows freedom to be destroyed. Freedom and liberty must be preserved by and through the principles of God’s word relating to the nation and government.
This is the job of the church. Today in our post-modern world, the church has capitulated and handed its task over to the devil himself.
Here are a few powerful verses of scripture.
Psalm 33:12 (Amp) “Blessed, fortunate and to be envied is the nation whose God is the Lord...”
Proverbs 28:28 (Amp) “When the wicked arise, men hide themselves; but when they perish, the consistently righteous increase and become many.”
Proverbs 28:2 (Amp) “When a land transgresses it has many rulers; but when the ruler is a man of discernment, understanding and knowledge, its stability will long continue.”
Proverbs 24:21 (Amp) “My son, reverently fear the Lord and king, and do not associate with those who are given to change of allegiance and are revolutionary.”
Job 12:23-24 (Amp) “He makes nations great, and He destroys them, He enlarges nations and shrinks them. He takes away understanding from leaders and causes them to wander in the wilderness where there is no way.”
In the past, the US was a nation under God. Since God and His word were removed from government, legislature, and society, it has fast become a nation under the god of this world - Satan! The mesmerising power of the Godless media fans the flames of hatred towards those who love the Lord and His word. What you see on Godless TV is the way to be, says the world’s god.
It is only the true believers in the US that are preserving it from falling, but even this has a time-stamp on it!
Israel is not a nation under the true God – Yeshua -yet, but it is very different from other nations in that it is a nation in waiting for her Messiah. She is about to have her eyes opened.
God has an irrevocable calling on Israel. It is throughout the scriptures.
This is a problem of epidemic proportions within the church world, largely because of false teaching.
Most ministries have done you a terrible disservice in the name of our Lord. They have led you astray. They have and continually are preaching a half-baked gospel. They preach about the Lamb of God, but very seldom do you hear preaching about the Lion of God! Both are needed for a well balanced, full gospel. I guarantee you that if you only have one, you are unbalanced and deceived.
On top of this omission is the sin of pure error. Pacifists use the following verses incorrectly.
The statue above stands in front of the UN building. It has these words from the verse below on the side of the sculpture.
Isaiah 2:4 “...They shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks; Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.” The heading of this chapter is “The Future House of God.”
This verse will not come to pass until the Millennium! In the mean time this is the verse that applies to the world now – which you will not find anywhere near the UN!
Joel 3:9 “Proclaim this among the nations: prepare for war! Wake up the mighty men, Let all the men of war draw near, beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears; let the weak say, I am strong.”
Here is another verse commonly used by Christian pacifists:
Genesis 4:15: “Whoever kills Cain (after he had killed his brother Able) vengeance will be taken on him sevenfold, and the Lord set a mark on Cain, lest anyone finding him should kill him.”
They say that this verse above comes against capital punishment and war. But the law against murder only came about 490 years later. God could not make a law retro-active long before it came into existence. The “mark” on Cain would be a type of the prison system.
Many years later the law came along and this is what it says:
Genesis 9:6 “Whoever sheds man’s blood, by man his blood shall be shed.”
Pacifists also use the following verse to justify their position.
Exodus 20:13 “Thou shalt not kill.”
That is a terrible miss-translation of the King James Version. The original word is ‘homicide’. What it says is, “You shall not commit murder.” (Premeditated homicide)
Romans 11:22 “Consider both the goodness and severity of God.”
“The war was of God.”
War is such a messy, costly and dirty business, how could it be of God? Well, we firstly need to look at God’s word and secondly look at the nature of threats.
Have a look at these profound verses of scripture:
1 Chronicles 5:22 “Many fell dead because the war was of God.”
Psalm 68:30 (Amp)”...Scatter the people who delight in war.”
Psalm 55:21 (Amp) “The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart; his words were softer than oil, yet they were drawn swords.”
Psalm 140:1 (Amp) “Deliver me, O Lord, from the evil man; preserve me from the violent man. They continually gather together to stir up wars.”
These important verses above demonstrate clearly the nature of many people in this world. The response in God’s word is the following:
Psalm 144:1 (Amp) “Blessed be the Lord my rock and my keen and firm strength, who teaches my hands to make war and my fingers to fight.”
2 Samuel 22:35 “He trains my hands for war, so that my hands can bend a bow of bronze.”
You may protest and say that this is Old Covenant. Okay, well here’s the New:
Romans 13:3-4 “Rulers (of Godly government) are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authorities? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good, but if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain (war / capital punishment), for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practises evil.”
So, the principle of war is the same in both covenants.
The verses above are earth shattering – literally! They speak volumes and need little commentary. Note that there are people with war in their hearts, delighting to stir up wars and the instructions from God are to counter attack!
You may not like it, but the machinery and conduct of war is of God and perfectly justified in defensive and sometimes offensive situations.
Please understand that it is God who raises up nations and brings them down, and He does so on the basis of whether or not that nation is under God or has rejected God in favour of its spiritually bankrupt, demon possessed leaders.
Isaiah 60:12 “The nation and kingdom which will not serve you shall perish, and those nations shall be utterly ruined.”
Daniel 2:20-21 “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, for wisdom and might are His. He changes the times and seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings...”
Hosea 4:1-3 “There is no truth or mercy or knowledge of God in the land. By swearing, lying, killing and stealing and committing adultery, they break all restraint with bloodshed after bloodshed. Therefore the land will mourn and everyone who dwells there will waste away with the beasts of the fields and the birds of the air, even the fish of the sea will be taken away.”
The Bible term, ‘Lord’ or ‘God of hosts’ is a military term with “hosts” meaning ‘armies.’ Believe it or not, there is a war on the go in the invisible spiritual realm between all the forces of God and the devil. It is in fact this, which manifests in the natural realm.
In this particular day we must be aware that Satan is the chief instigator of war. He is moving behind the scenes to bring about his world of chaos.
In this day, God has a plan for the Jews, Israel and Jerusalem. Because of this, so does Satan.
The nature of the Palestinians:
Now that we understand that there are people with war in their hearts, continually gathering to make war, let’s look into the heart of the Palestinian people (and most Arab nations).
Explanation: There is no Palestinian nation or people. They originated from numerous Middle Eastern lands, excluding Israel. The word “Palestinian” is a transliteration of “Philistinos”, the Greek word for Philistines, who originated from numerous lands. They are true Arabs. From a Biblical point of view, the Palestinians can be identified with the Arabs / Philistines. In more modern times, the Palestinians emerged from Jordan (Edom, Moab, Ammon).
Political leaders and military generals would do well to study the following verses!
Ezekiel 36:2-5 “Thus says the Lord God: ‘Because the enemy has said of you, (Israel) Aha! The ancient heights have become our possession, therefore prophecy and say, ‘thus says the Lord God, because they made you desolate and swallowed you up on every side, so that you became the possession of the rest of the nations, and you are taken up by the lips of talkers and slandered by the people (UN)’...vs. 5 “Surely I have spoken in my burning jealousy against the rest of the nations and against all Edom (Palestinians today), who gave My land to themselves as a possession, with wholehearted joy and spiteful minds, in order to plunder its open country. (God’s fury and wrath follows).’”
Ezekiel 35:5-6 “Because you (Palestinians today) have an ancient hatred, and have shed the blood of the children of Israel by the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, when their iniquity came to an end. Therefore as I live says the Lord God, ‘I will prepare you for blood and blood shall pursue you; since you have not hated blood, blood will pursue you.”
Micah 4:11-12 “Now many nations have gathered against you (Israel), who say, ‘let her be defiled and let our eye look upon Zion.’ But they do not know the thoughts of the Lord, nor do they understand His counsel; for He will gather them like sheaves to the threshing floor.”
Joshua 15:20, 47 “This was the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Judah according to their families...vs. 47 “Ashdod with its towns and villages, Gaza, with its towns and villages – as far as the brook of Egypt and the great sea with its coastline.”
Amos 1:6-8, 13 “Thus says the Lord: For three transgressions of Gaza and for four, I will not turn away its punishment, because they took captive the whole captivity, to deliver them up to Edom (Palestinians today). I will send fire on the wall of Gaza...and the remnant of the Philistines (Palestinians) shall perish, says the Lord God...vs. 13 “I will not turn away the punishment of the people of Ammon (Jordan / Palestinians), because they ripped open the women with child in Gilead, that they might enlarge their territory.”
Amos 1:6-7 “I will not turn away the punishment of Gaza, because they took captive the whole captivity to deliver them up to Edom (Palestinians). I will send fire on the wall of Gaza...”
Joel 3:2 “I will also gather all nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat (Lit=judgment), and I will enter into judgement with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land.”
Zephaniah 2:4, 8-9 “For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon desolate...O Cannaan, land of the Philistines (Palestinians), I will destroy you. Vs.8-9 “I have heard of the reproach of Moab (Palestinians) and the reviling of the people of Ammon, with which they have reproached My people, and made arrogant threats against their borders. Therefore as I live, says the Lord of hosts (armies), the God of Israel, surely Moab shall be like Sodom and the people of Ammon like Gomorrah ...”
Zechariah 9:5-6 “Gaza shall be very sorrowful...A mixed race shall settle in Ashdod, and I will cut off the pride of the Philistines (Palestinians.)”
So, from the above verses we see that the Palestinians fit the bill perfectly of people with war in their hearts and their target is God’s choice – Israel. Please note also how many prophecies of doom there are against Gaza. Watch for big developments in Gaza very soon! In fact watch for the Psalm 83 war, the Isaiah 17 war and Ezekiel 38 & 39!
A discourse on the Aryans:
There was an Aryan race that existed 4000 years ago in the Nordic regions and migrated down to Persia (Iran) where they settled. The Aryan became the ideal of a perfect man with no Jewish blood or ancestry in him. Hitler was the one who took the whole idea further. He wanted a 1000-year reign of Nazi peace where the Aryans would populate the world, but the Jews stood in his way.
Now here is a surprise: The word Iran is the Persian word for “land of the Aryans.” In fact Iran is a transliteration from Aryan. It may also surprise you to know that the ancient Aryans or Persians, now Iranians, used the Swastika as a symbol long before the Germans. The Swastika is still highly revered in Iran and is many art works of antiquity.
The image below shows the oldest Aryan symbol, the Swastika / wheel of Mithra and the sun.
So now we have a connection between Iran / Aryans / Nazi Germany / Swastika and hatred for the Jews! It’s interesting that that the word “Holocaust” means, “Great sacrifice by fire”, and it is Iran who wants to build a nuclear bomb to bring another Holocaust upon Israel!
World War 11 ended with a great nuclear fire. Could it be that World War 111 begins with a great nuclear fire? What Iran has forgotten is that Israel has nukes! But don’t tell them!!!
Iran’s Revolutionary Guard published a book distributed in the hundreds of thousands entitled “The last Six Months.” (WND)
The book describes what Islamic soldiers need to do in the last six months before the appearance of their Islamic Messiah, the Mahdi. The book encourages attacks on Syria and Iraq. Iran will be the centre, according to the book.
The Shiites believe that the Mahdi will only appear when Israel is destroyed and the US is brought to its knees. They believe that the Mahdi will be the “perfect person and will unite all religions.”
Hitler wanted a 1000 years of peace without any Jews.
This is the desire of Iran and the Muslim Mahdi as well.
Israel must respond militarily, even if she stands alone. But God will be with her and against all her enemies!
Why is Jerusalem the choice and desire of the devil, the Catholics, the Palestinians and others? It’s because God has chosen Jerusalem.
Psalm 132:13 “For the Lord has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His habitation.”
Zechariah 3:2 “And the Lord said to Satan, the Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem.”
But Israel messed up with God and fell out of favour, until this time now.
Matthew 23:37-38 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her, how often I have wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks, but you were not willing! See your house is left to you desolate.”
Not only did Israel mess up, but the nations of the world have messed up relating to Jerusalem. It will have dramatic consequences:
Zechariah 12:2-3 “I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all people and all who would heave it away (divide it) will surely be cut in pieces, though all the nations of the earth are gathered against it.”
The world will not repent, but Israel will and God’s ultimate purpose for Jerusalem will finally come about.
The end game:
Know and understand that we are at the beginning of the Biblical end-time drama and many nations are going to be brought down. God has sealed their fate. We are on the verge of all of this exploding onto the world stage.
Church leaders, you can continue with your replacement theology or repent and line up with God’s word. Political leaders, you may say that you don’t believe in God or the devil. You are about to find out otherwise to your eternal detriment.
Prime ministers, Presidents, Kings, Queens, savage dictators, and other political leaders, you are tragic fools of immense proportions to come against or even ignore God’s word on Israel. You are children of hell already.
Ezekiel 20:41 “I will accept you (Jews) as a sweet aroma when I bring you out of the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you have been scattered; and I will be hallowed in you before the Gentiles.”
Isaiah 60:14 “The sons of those who afflicted you (Nazi Germany included) shall come bowing to you, and those who despised you shall fall prostrate at the soles of your feet; and they shall call you the City of the Lord, Zion of the Holy One of Israel.”
Amos 9:15 “I will plant them (Jews) in their land, and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord God.”
An address to Israel’s political and military leaders:
Be strong and courageous. Your God is with you. Do not be deterred by the foolish wisdom of the world. Beware of lurking enemies in the Christian church. Your God’s eternal covenant with you still stands. (Judges2:1) Open your hearts to your Messiah and He will reveal Himself to you.
Deuteronomy 7:6 “For you are a holy people to the Lord your God. He has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the people on the face of the earth.”
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.”
What you must do:
Be warned, because certain wars are “of God,” you can’t win if you’re on the wrong side. It is impossible to win a war backed by the Lord’s hosts. It is far wiser to surrender now, throw in the towel, capitulate and give up, than to fight God.
Lining up with God’s word will bring you His favour.
Isaiah 25:8 “He will swallow up death forever, and the Lord God will wipe away tears from every face; the rebuke of His people He will take away from all the earth.”
Colossians 2:15 “He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, triumphing over them.”
Deuteronomy 20:4 “For the Lord your God is He who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to give you victory.”
I took this picture in a strange mountainous desert called Richterveld in the west of South Africa. It is beautiful beyond words, silent, barren, inhabited only by wildlife, permanently drought stricken, full of weird plants. It is unforgiving for those not prepared. It reminds me of the desolation after nuclear war! If you want to see some more images of this amazing place, click Here.
Isaiah 35:1 “The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, and the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
