Why The Prophetic Scroll will never be main-stream:
►Don’t forget to spread around The Prophetic Scroll’s new You Tube Channel. It contains each main edition presented in audio format. HERE
Most people, since the invention of the pop-up toaster want their Christianity the same way, which is instant, pop-up results without going through the discipleship and maturing process, and without having the carpet pulled out from under them, defeating their self-life, ego and dethroning their pride.
The ministry office of the evangelist throws the seed out and it brings the people in to the kingdom. But you can’t live there. You need to move on to the ministry of the teacher / pastor, and become a disciple, which is much more than a convert.
This is where you have to sit down, shut up and be taught the deeper things of God. You need to move from milk to meat. This is where you pay the price, and it costs you everything you are.
The problem is that either the modern teacher is too shallow and spineless, or the recipient is, and he just doesn’t want to pay any price at all.
Matthew 28:19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations...teaching them all things I have commanded.”
Luke 9:23 “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me.”
Luke 14:33 “Whoever of you does not forsake all that he has, cannot be My disciple.”
The original word for “Disciple” is Strong’s G3101, ‘Mathetes’. Meanings: Subjected pupil learner.
We could rightly say that the word means to be subjected under the authority of another, for instruction, correction, and training in righteousness.
The Lord makes converts and then disciples of those converts. Being a subjected pupil learner takes time and it takes sacrifice. Note the conditions for discipleship in the verses above. They are foreign to today’s pop-up superficial, clown-like Christian.
The image below is a compilation I put together of various artist impressions of the disciples. (I will share the other six soon) Bear in mind that these men gave their lives to serve our Lord and finally were all martyred in horrific manners, except for John. I have to say that the renaissance artists captured perfectly the drama and emotion of it all. (Brings tears to my eyes.)
The Prophetic Scroll has always endeavoured to bring you a mix of exciting prophetic material, relevant to today, as well as with a lot of “hard sayings” thrown in, for your edification and growth. “Consider both the goodness and severity of God”, says the Bible.
But, you see, too many want their ears tickled and are only interested in flashy, shouty, stage-stomping entertainment with a few pretty verses thrown in. And of course bright lights and sound effects too - to manipulate the masses.
Main stream Christianity is for those going with the flow. Present worldly Christianity is their measure. True Bible-based Christianity is for those going against the flow, with their ‘sail’ tacking into the wind!
A yacht can go fast with the flow of the wind with its spinnaker up. But it can also move forward into the wind with the sail set correctly. Evangelism is fast, discipleship is slow.
The winds of the world are blowing towards hell, and many lukewarm, compromised, half-baked, partly counterfeit churches too.
Those with the wind in their face are few in number. It’s always been that way. But remember the ultimate, great assessment by our Lord is coming up. No one will escape it.
Is the wind at the back of your head as you go with the flow, or in your face? Oooo – it’s so nice and cool with the wind in your face as you go forward with our Lord at the helm.
I once heard an ill-equipped minister, Rev, Harry Halfbaked, who produced a great many Christian failures (that he thought were a success) teach graduating ministers how to evangelise. He used all the methods of self promotion, self exaltation, self-esteem and worldly ways of promotion, all designed to manipulate and entertain the masses.
The ministry of the cross, brokenness and repentance were totally foreign, as they are in so many churches today.
Those who have cut their spiritual teeth on the old-school teachers and the hard sayings of hell-fire and brimstone preachers of old, or no-compromise teachers are the ones who grow into stable Christians. The big thing is to have the carpet pulled out from under you early in your walk.
If not you will always be a squirmy half dead Christian living in a cloud-cuckoo – never never land, in the realm of the half-baked wishy-washies.
Don’t be afraid to be hard on yourself, particularly in these days. Don’t be afraid of the cross, it is the only way to glory. Surrender and submit to the leading of the Spirit and follow His prompting.
There is a fatal satanic attraction in the error of superficiality. When it manifests it’s like glue, and the majority get stuck in the rut. Don’t mess with it!
No one will ever approach God on their own terms! Even though there is little time left, God will not compromise on the character of His disciples.
Edition 550: December 1st 2020.
Peace and stability.
On YouTube: Here
Don’t worry, be happy, ooh, ooh, oo-ooh!
Shaking causes a reach for stability. Stability endures.
Stability is needed when things are shaking. The shaking has begun! “I will shake all nations and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory.” (Haggai 2:7)
Isaiah 33:6 “Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times and strength of salvation. The fear of the Lord is His treasure.”
Revelation 6:4 “Another horse, fiery red went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth and that people should kill one another, and there was given to him a great sword.”
The real intense shaking will occur in the tribulation period, through which we will not go. But it won’t all begin on day one. We are now in the forerunner period.
In these troubled times the heart of man is being shaken. People are coming apart at the seams like never before and that includes many Christians.
Here’s the staggering contrast in these two verses below.
Isaiah 2:19 “They shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, from the terror of the Lord and the glory of His majesty, when He arises to shake the earth mightily.”
Daniel 2:44 “In the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed...it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms and it shall stand forever.”
We are heading for 2021. Interestingly the number 21 has biblical meaning “great wickedness!” The number 20 representing this year 2020 has a biblical meaning of “Completed waiting period.” The number 19 for 2019 and Covid-19 means “Judgement.” You can find more on this Here.
Are these things coincidence? I think not. But don’t go overboard on them.
What is interesting to me is that there are so many of the solid Bible teachers today speaking of great dramas about to fall upon this world. I concur!
The prophetic ducks are all lining up in a row fast. The world has been consumed with the pandemic and the US elections, but the next of the forerunners to the tribulation is about to break out and that is war. It is already simmering. It will create a massive shaking.
Covid-19 is increasing fast, but bear in mind that it is just the vehicle that is being used to bring in world control on a massive basis. It is the forerunner in some way of the mark of the beast.
James 1:5-8 “If any of you lacks wisdom let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea tossed about by the wind. Let that not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord. He is a doubled minded man unstable in all his ways.”
Isaiah 7:9 “...If you will not believe, surely you will not be established. (Stabilised).
For stability in the Christian life, you need to have a revelation of God Himself, of heaven, of hell, and the eternal reward state.
Stability comes from knowing where you come from, and where you are going. We come from “before the foundation of the earth”, we are “seated in heaven” and we are going to “rule and reign” with God in a kingdom of eternal glory. (Try telling that to the local shrink!)
When the believer retreats into his soul for sustenance, he finds a well of godly, stability and peace amongst all the turmoil.
When an unbeliever retreats into his soul for sustenance, he finds the instability of the uncrucified self, the world and a host of demons.
It is the self-life that is unstable, being linked in many ways to the god of confusion and instability – Satan.
Here is a most important key:
When you look into a mirror do you see your goodly self looking back? Or you may see the Lord looking back. If so you are a victim of deceived teachers. If you see Barabbas looking back, you have been taught right!
You see, Barabbas was a liar a thief and a murderer, just like you and me. He side-stepped execution, and like a scapegoat, fled into the world.
When you see Barabbas looking back you can execute him on the cross and then arise to newness of life.
No cross, and Barabbas rules your life, believe it or not. We are at peace with God, with self on the cross.
The world is the home of Barabbas. We are to die to self and the world and to come out and be separate. We are to cleanse ourselves and not touch what is unclean, and then the Lord will be a special Father to us. (2 Corinthians 6:1)
Proverbs 4:23 (Amp) “Keep your heart with all vigilance and guard it for out of it flow the springs of life.”
Peace: Strong’s H7965, “Shalom.” Meanings: Safety, prosperity quiet, tranquillity, contentment, lack of war. Covenant relationship with God.
Luke 2:14 “Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace towards men (that are His)”
Here now is the amazing thing about this often misunderstood verse above. People believe that Yeshua has come to bring peace to the world system. Have a look at the amazing meaning of the word “peace” used in this verse:
Peace: Strong’s G1515, “Eirene.” Meanings: Messiah’s peace, the peace of Christianity, peace through salvation, state of tranquillity, exemption from war, havoc and rage and harmony between individuals. The blessed state of devout and upright men of God after death.
Yeshua did not come to bring peace to the world, but peace with God through the cross. If you could have world-peace now your world would be in a cross-less world full of sin, just as it is.
“In Me you will have peace.” (John 16:33)
The work of the cross produces eternal glorious life, peace, holiness, strength, reality of the supernatural, stability security, freedom and victory – forever.
Be careful of love, peace and unity at any cost. Based on that, you may end in hell! All of the fruits of the Spirit must be attached to tree of truth otherwise they may be rotten!
Without the cross all of these things are a cheap, deceptive counterfeit. Tragically, many Christians are enemies of the cross too. Enmity towards the cross often grows.
Enemies of the cross are friends of sin by default.
Philippians 3:18 “Many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping; they are enemies of the cross of Messiah.”
Galatians 6:14 “God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, by whom the world has been crucified to me and I to the world.”
Peace without the cross is the antichrist’s “peace.” It is the “peace” of hell. True peace only comes by the new birth as does the entrance to the kingdom of God.
Peace is a person who now lives in your heart, the fruits flow outwardly. “He is our peace.”
Let’s have a look at some glorious verses on peace:
Psalm 85:10-11 “Mercy and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. Truth shall spring out of the earth, and righteousness shall look down from heaven.”
Psalm 37:37 “Mark the blameless man, and observe the upright; for the future of that man is peace.”
Romans 8:6 “To be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”
2 Peter 1:2 “Grace and peace be multiplied to you, in the knowledge of God and Yeshua the Messiah.”
The kingdom of God is in righteousness and peace.
God’s programme is to bring in a new world through the Prince of peace. Satan’s program is to try to bring peace to this old world through the antichrist.
Liberalism is not just another socio-political way to peace. It is a spirit of error as can be seen in its consistent, never ending attacks on the virtues of biblical morality. It is a curse, supposedly bringing unity and peace, which it does not! It produces enslaved control.
Socialism makes the state a god. In so doing; and of necessity it must get rid of the true God of peace.
Socialism is the big force creating togetherness, equality and oneness, with sin intact. Biblical Christianity is the great separator.
The meaning of the word “holy” is “apart!”
2 Peter 2:12-14 (False teachers) “Like natural brute beasts, they speak evil of things they do not understand...they cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls...they are accursed children.”
1 John 5:4 “Whatever is born of God overcomes the world.”
The spirit of heaviness today:
With all the stresses and strains of today, and an extremely bleak outlook for the world, many are suffering from numerous psychological disorders.
Psalm 42:5 “Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God!” (Verse 11 – repeats this, as does Psalm 43:5)
The Bible talks of the “spirit of heaviness.”
The heaviness could be well-described as stress, strain, anxiety, torment and the like.
But note that it is caused primarily by a spirit! This is the key to victory – not the local shrink! Psychology does not recognise or deal with spirits! There is no pill you can take to get rid of spirits. Often when you are under a cloud of psychological problems they rub off on others.
Malachi 2:8 “You have departed from the way; you have caused many to stumble at the law (word)...”
You need to be equipped in spiritual warfare to identify spirits and then cast them out.
People under severe stress tend to be inward looking. “Woe is me” is their chant. As you look inward you look to self and Barabbas sitting on your throne. Guess what the answer is? Kill Barabbas! Execute him.
When you apply the cross to self, you die to all these stresses and strains and are on the way to victory.
John 16:1 “These things I have spoken to you, that you should not be made to stumble.”
The wisdom of God in your heart mind soul, and in your very veins sets you on fire, glowing with the things of God. It makes you passionate, zealous, strong, stable and hotly holy! It also makes you a fierce opponent of sin, evil and wickedness.
Job 33:33 “Hold your peace (shut up) and I will teach you wisdom.”
Job 15:8 “Have you heard the (secret/hidden) counsel of God? Do you limit wisdom to yourself?”
The example of the disciples:
They really were a mixed bunch of ordinary men of the day. They were unstable initially, until they really encountered the living God through their varied ways. Twelve men produced an “army” that tuned the world upside down.
They were greatly loved by the early church and greatly hated by the devil’s crowd. They ended up being stable to the point of terrible martyrdom (except for John). What turned Peter the one who denied the Lord earlier, to save his skin, into a willing martyr?
Martyrdom today is on the rise dramatically. It will become far worse in the tribulation, but even now the numbers are horrific.
A martyr is one who refuses to give up, renounce, or change his beliefs even unto death. That is why Christianity has been so successful through the church age. In fact Christianity thrives and grows in the face of persecution, which also has the effect of creating unity.
The more the devil tries to stamp out pure Christianity, the more it thrives! World history is littered with popes, presidents, kings, tyrants and the like who tried to destroy blood-bought Christianity and failed.
If we could see the end from the beginning, we would be totally secure and stable.
Job 22:21-28 “Acquaint yourself with Him and be at peace; thereby good will come to you. Receive please, instruction from His mouth, and lay up His words in your heart. If you return to the Almighty, you will be built up; you will remove iniquity far from your tents...Yes the almighty will be your gold and your precious silver...You will make your prayer to Him and He will hear you...So light will shine on your ways.”
The way of the world:
The world has a way to peace. I’ve watched it all my adult life. It fails all the time, on every front just like the world’s big peace efforts as seen in the Tower of Babel, Rome, Hitler’s planned 1000 years of peace and all new-world order attempts.
Our Lord, Him in us, His word, the cross and Israel are all true peace bringers.
True peace comes on the wings of judgement. Only then do you have human evil rooted out. For the Christian we have already received judgment through the substitution of the cross. For those outside of the cross, their terror-judgement remains ahead.
Bear in mind that the meaning of the word “Noah” is “rest and peace.” The ark came to rest, after judgment on Mt. Ararat. This word means: “The curse is reversed.” Coincidence? – I think not!
World peace does not come through the gun, the tank, the submarine, or the atom bomb. It comes through the violence of the cross of Messiah. World peace through military conquest and control is the way of the world.
Missiles, big guns and atom bombs can’t fix or deal with the sin issue. It can’t make people perfect and holy.
Isaiah 59:8 “The way of peace they have not known, and there is no justice in their ways; they have made themselves crooked paths; whoever takes that path will not know peace.”
Wickedness, evil, sin and violence will suddenly explosively escalate as peace is removed from the earth and the restrainer is removed in a rapturous flash.
Israel and the true church are the greatest obstacles to one-world “peace,” but soon the church will be gone, leaving Israel to man God’s fort and bring salvation to the tribulation masses (saints).
Having Israel in her correct prophetic place produces rest like the right piece of a jigsaw puzzle falling into place.
Isaiah 26:12 “Lord, you will establish peace for us, for You have done all our works in us.”
It is the truth of God’s word that is the ultimate pillar of strength and stability for us.
1 Timothy 3:15 “...The church of the living God is the pillar and foundation of the truth, which brings us the mystery of godliness.”
“Don’t be afraid” occurs in the Bible 365 times! There’s a message in that!
The Bible says there is pleasure in sin for a season. But there is pleasure in righteousness for eternity. What a wonderful life we have!
Psalm 121:7-8 “The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in, from this time and forevermore.”
John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither be afraid.” – Don’t worry, be happy, ooh, ooh, oo-ooh!
This is one of my semi-abstract, mixed media art works.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 549: November 24th 2020.
Contrasting new world orders:
“The soon coming real New World Order is the Millennium. It will be pure and holy and filled with eternal glory, joy, peace and love.
It will have no sickness, disease, tears or any of the troubles that we know so well in this world. It will be filled with the purpose and meaning for which you were created, and seen by our Lord in eternity gone by.
Did you know that you were chosen before the foundation of the world to be holy and blameless? (Ephesians 1:4, Romans 8:29)
The essence of the new world order is a one-world government, a one-world, religion and currency. Bringing people into a world of equality on all fronts is one of the goals. This they believe is the way to universal peace. They have a surprise coming!
In many ways there is a new world order for the Christian as an individual. He is under the unified government of God. (Isaiah 9:6-7) He is truly international, with full equality between all who are saved. (Hebrews 2:11) In spirit the Christian is neither Jew nor Gentile, male or female. He is truly androgynous (in spirit). (Galatians 3:28) He has one true single religion, as seen in the work of the cross. (Ephesians 2:6) He has one currency called faith. The Christian is in a world of peace. (John 16:33)
But before we get there we are seeing the early stages of the development of the counterfeit new world order of horror and terror. Although it will fully manifest in the tribulation period, we are seeing forerunners now.
Satan’s sick new world order:
“Stop the world I want to get off” was a 1966 musical too early for its time!
Man’s new world order is seen in numerous passages in the Revelation, Daniel and others. An excellent summation is in the four riders of the Apocalypse of Revelation 6
The new world order must destroy opposition to itself. That constitutes wickedness. “There is no peace for the wicked”, says the Bible (Isaiah 48:22). The new world order built on wickedness!
The world is being conditioned on multiple fronts for the soon coming new world order, and most can’t see it!
There is absolutely no doubt that a lot of the Covid-19 statistics and actions have been a total overblown exaggeration and lie in many cases. Some of the responses by authorities belong in a circus. But, the disease is real and is about to humiliate the World Health Organisation and friends.
The problem with a vaccination is that the world will think that they are now in the clear with God!
►Now, be prepared to be shocked by God!!
Exodus 23:24-26 “You shall not bow down to their gods (foreigners), nor serve them, nor do according to their works, but you shall utterly overthrow them and completely break down their sacred pillars. So you shall serve the Lord your God and He will bless your bread and water. And I will take sickness away from the midst of you. No one shall suffer miscarriage or be barren in your land...”
Notice in this most appropriate verse above that God says He will remove the sickness of the land, when conditions are met. They are to repent of idolatry false gods, and to utterly get rid of them. Both abortion and homosexuality are seen in a number of scriptures as idolatry. They are hinted at in this verse above in the original Hebrew.
If there is no repentance and “normal” continues:
Deuteronomy 28:58-59 “If you do not carefully observe all the words of this law that are written in this book, that you may fear this glorious and awesome Lord Your God. Then the Lord will bring upon you and your descendents extraordinary plagues – great and prolonged plagues and serious and prolonged sickness.”
It is God who brings the demand for repentance and judgement, through his word, prophets and watchmen.
Leviticus 26:14-19 “If you do not obey Me and do not observe all these commandments, and if you despise My statutes, or if your soul abhors My judgements and break My covenant, I also will do this to you: I will appoint terror over you, and wasting disease and fever, which shall consume the eyes and cause sorrow of heart...Those who hate you shall reign over you...I will punish you seven times more for your sins. I will break the pride of your power.”
Hosea 9:7-8 “The days of punishment have come; the days of recompense have come. Israel knows! The prophet is a crazed fool, and the inspired man is a mad fanatic, because of the abundance of your iniquity, enmity, hostility and persecution...They have deeply corrupted themselves
Do you see how precarious these things are and how serious they are?
It’s difficult to put exact numbers on these things, because it’s all still in a state of flux, but the big picture is clear and relevant.
We now have just over 1,400,000 million corona deaths worldwide. The world population is 7,800,000,000. (7.8bn) Some claim it is 8bn. The corona deaths are therefore 0.016% of the world population. (I hope my calculations are correct!)
Here’s the big shock: As the tribulation gets underway, according to the verse below, one fourth of the world’s population will die from disease! That’s about 2bn, just from this pale horse rider:
Revelation 6:8 “I looked and behold a pale (sickly) horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him and power (authority) was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, and hunger, with death, (with plague pestilence and disease, -Amp) and by the beasts of the earth.”
The word “Beasts” above is Strong’s G2342: “Therion” Meanings: Diminutive, dangerous little beast, wild animal. Do you see that the word could also apply to a virus?
(The deaths are also from the sword, but this is not the sword of war, because that is addressed in Revelation 6: 4. So this must be a sword of fighting relating to the disease. Either way it’s not pretty)
So now, you tell me, will these vaccines be successful? Have these stupid masks worked? It will never come anywhere near stopping this plague.
We are about to see a massive escalation in deaths. Granted the big total is in the tribulation, but that’s not all going to happen overnight. We are seeing the build up and forerunners right now.
►The number has to jump from 1.4 million virus deaths to 2bn in a few short years!
Bear in mind that the 2 billion deaths are just from the pale horse rider and not the others. The total killed in the tribulation is two thirds (66.6%) of the world population that will die taking them all into account. That’s 5,194,800,000 (5.19 billion) people! Note the message in the familiar number 66.6
All of this says to me that neither the world, nor a part of the church will repent.
So you think the tribulation won’t be so bad, you’ll take the chance and stay unsaved! Auschwitz during the Holocaust saw the gas chambers at work for 3½ years. The second half of the tribulation is also 3½ years. In the tribulation 2½ million die every day. At Auschwitz 1000 died every day. The number that died every day at Auschwitz will die every 30 seconds in the tribulation!
Note that all of these shocking numbers right out of the Bible characterise man’s new world order, which goes into high gear in the tribulation.
The major characteristic of man’s new world order in the tribulation is death. Don’t you think it’s interesting that man’s rebellion to God is reflected in the deaths of millions of unborn babies?
Remember that it is the antichrist, the first of the four riders of the Apocalypse that rides onto the world stage, on a white horse with a bow and no arrows, speaking of deception, and he is given a crown, which means corona. (Revelation 6:2)
But then the great white horse Rider at the end of the tribulation:
Revelation 19:11-15 “I saw heaven opened and behold, a white horse and he who sat on him was called Faithful and True and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire and on His head were many crowns...And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean followed Him on white horses. Out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He may strike the nations...”
Do you see the amazing contrast? The antichrist rides to set up his new world order, with tools of disease, murder, death and deception and our Lord rides from heaven with the church who have been in heaven for seven years. He has many crowns speaking of victory and great authority as He returns to ‘strike the nations’.
God’s glorious New World Order:
Glory: Strong’s H3519 - “Kabowd” Meanings: Shine, honour, abundance, splendour, dignity.
Technically, the Millennium is God’s New World Order, but we can extend all these principles and things into the entire kingdom of God as well, which includes the eternity of eternities, the entire new universe and other worlds.
The principle of the new world order is equality. The principle of God’s New World Order is inequality. We are and will all be equal in terms of the foundation of salvation, but we will be eternally different from each other, based on what we built on our foundation in this life. That’s not works-based salvation, but Spirit-led works based reward.
Where is sin? It reigns in our mortal bodies. At the new-birth our spirit is made perfect. But at the rapture our mortal bodies are transformed. So there will be no sin in us at all.
Philippians 3:21 “He will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body.”
Our eternal state will be truly glorious and beyond our wildest imagination. We, in new bodies, will inhabit a new universe order!
Here are just some of our new, incredible characteristics shown in the Bible:
Revelation 21:5 “He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new...”
The eternal kingdom and the resurrection body: ●The resurrection body will be just like that of our Lord in resurrection. (1 John 3:2) ●The resurrection body will be eternal. ●It will be imperishable without aging, decay, injury, impurity, sickness, deformity, tears or pain (1 Corinthians 15:52, Revelation 21:4) ●It will be a body of glory. (1 Corinthians 15:43) ●The resurrection body will be powerful. (1 Corinthians 15:43) This power will be physical as well as spiritual. ●The resurrection body will know all things past present and future. ●The resurrection body will be holy and pure (1 Corinthians 15:44). ●He will not sin. ●The resurrection person will have a new name and pure language. ●The resurrection body will be able to switch between the physical and spiritual realm. ●The body will be able to travel supernaturally at the speed of thought. ●The resurrection body will be able to transcend different dimensions in time and space. ●The resurrection body will be equal with others in terms of salvation but will be eternally different from each other as a result of eternal rewards. ●The resurrection body will be eternally crowned with authority in some way in relation to their reward. ●The resurrection body will not be confined to earth or heaven alone, but will rule and reign in the universe with our Lord from His throne of authority. ●The new body is beyond our imagination. (1 Corinthians 2:9)
Think of Moses after an encounter with our Lord of glory. His face shone brightly. Think about Paul being struck down and blinded by the glory of the Lord for a while when he encountered the Lord on the Damascus road. Think about the transfiguration. Peter James and John witnessed our Lord shining with bright, radiant glory.
Revelation 21:27 “There shall by no means enter it (New Jerusalem) anything defiles or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.”
2 Peter 3:13 “We, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.”
Isaiah 32:16-17 “Then justice will dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness will remain in the fruitful field. The work of righteousness will be peace and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever.”
2 Corinthians 5:1-2 “Now we know that if our earthy house (tent) is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. In this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven.”
It’s encouraging to note that numerous scriptures hint at and imply other inhabited world’s out in the universe.
Here are a few verses:
Hebrews 1:2 “In these last days His son whom He appointed to be heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds.” (plural)
Hebrews 11:3 “By faith we understand that the worlds (plural) were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.”
Hebrews 12:1 “We are surrounded by so great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off every weight and sin that ensnares us.”
Isaiah 45:12 “I have made the earth and created man on it. It was I. My hands stretched out the heavens, and all their host I have commanded.” (“Host” means: Organised group for service as in an army.)
God hates sin and man loves sin, which is why man hates God, particularly His word. Why does man love sin? Because his heart is wicked! So he needs a new heart. Then you will begin to hate sin and love God. You cannot truly love God with a wicked heart.
Take a moment to contrast in your mind all the horrors of the new world order and all the glories of the New World Order and then choose.
The true New World Order is made of ancient truth, while the counterfeit is made of new ‘truth’ which is a violation of God's truth.
The great terror for the unbeliever will be to see and know all these things, but from the inescapable, eternal prison of hell.
We have a glorious eternal future with heavenly homes built by our Lord. The New Jerusalem, the earth in the Millennium and so much more are before us. It will be a time of full knowledge, purity, holiness, peace, joy rest comfort abundance and freedom.
Mathew 6:19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasure upon this earth, but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven.”

Edition 548: November 17th 2020.
The war of the lions:
“The clash of the Titans” was an old movie based on ancient Greek mythical lion-like creatures. It was a remake of the “Wrath of the Titans.”
Today we have a lot more than a movie before us. We are witnessing the clash and the wrath of the lions as revealed in the Bible, with two big losers and two big winners.
This edition is about the ●Lion which is the Lamb of God. It is about the ●Lion of the tribe of Judah (Israel). It is about the ●lion of Babylon and Rome. It is about the ●devil who is like a lion.
On numerous occasions I have witnessed at close range, sometimes while on foot in the wild, the clash between lions, as their territory is invaded by an unwelcome lion. I can tell you it is an incredible experience. They fight, often to the death, with bloodcurdling, thunderous roars and with the wrath of giant teeth, jaws and claws in full attack mode.
Lions are territorial! The lion is the king of the beasts. Groups are sometimes referred to as a kingdom of lions. It is a ferocious killer with a roar that can be heard for many miles. That roar bites, devours and shreds its enemies. A lion has no natural enemies besides other lions.
Proverbs 30:30 “A lion, which is mighty among the beasts, does not turn away from any!”
The lion is a symbol of strength, beauty, power, fearlessness, and dominance. A lion can be described as an observant watchman. He is a judge with whom you do not negotiate. He is king, with a voice that silences all others. He is a silent stalker, producing fear when in protection mode. Lions are soft and gentle with their young.
Proverbs 19:12 “The king’s wrath is like the roaring of a lion, but his favour is like the dew on the grass.”
The Bible often uses an animal to describe a person because of similar characteristics.
●Our Lord and Saviour is described as a Lion, but with Lamb characteristics towards those that are His within His kingdom.
●Our Lord is described as the Lion of Israel. One of the emblems of Jerusalem is a lion. In fact all around the ancient walls of Jerusalem you will see sculptures and friezes of lions.
●The lion is a symbol of ancient Babylon. It represented the King of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar who is a type of the antichrist soon to be revealed. His lion emblem was meant to put fear in his enemies. Out of Babylon came Rome with its religion. The Roman Emperor Nero was a terrible killer, also a well-known type of the antichrist.
Babylon is a very clear and important type of the end-time world system, which will be headed by the antichrist for a short season.
●Satan is described in the Bible “as a roaring lion”. (1 Peter5:8)
The true church and Israel are inextricably linked to the Lion of all Lions – the winning Lion.
The end-time world system is inextricably linked to a lion of deception, a looser.
Let’s look now at all four lions:
The church’s Lion:
Our Lion has already turned into a Lamb. The true born-again church will never see the wrath of the Lion. He has already paid the price for us and ripped sin from us.
The Lord reserves His wrath for His enemies. (Nahum 1:2)
Here is our great victory: Revelation 19:14 “The armies in heaven clothed in fine linen, white and clean followed Him on white horses.” So, the picture is a whole lot of lion cubs riding white horses.
We, as Lion cubs can rest assured and in confidence that our Father the Lion of God is our God, our Father, and great friend forever.
John 1:29 “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world!”
But if you won’t receive the Lamb slain and raised, He will be a raging Lion to you.
The big problem with the modern church is that it has become too lambified. It has forgotten how to roar when needs be.
Proverbs 28:1 “The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion.”
Yeshua called two of His disciples “Sons of thunder” James and John wanted to call down fire to destroy some Samaritans (Luke 9:54) There were other instances where the thunder-like character of these two was evident. In today’s terms they could also be called “fire and brimstone” preachers.
Mark 3:17 “James and John the brother of James were called “Sons of thunder.”
Job 37:4-5 “A voice roars; He thunders with His majestic voice with no restraint when His voice is heard. God thunders marvellously with His voice. He does great things which we cannot comprehend.”
Much of the church today, instead of roaring, has its back to the enemy and is blind to what’s coming. How can you resist an enemy you refuse to see or address?
Does it matter if as a Christian you are uninformed or misdirected in these days?
Have a look at this informative picture below. The tourists are looking one way, but don’t see the lions coming up behind them. Guess who is in for a surprise in two seconds time!
This picture illustrates the importance of being vigilant and being fully informed by teachers and watchmen today. The unexpected can do you much harm if you are not ready. Being taught untruthful error is often a misdirection to set you up as devil-bait.
Israel’s Lion of Judah:
Genesis 49:9 “Judah (Israel) is a lion’s cub. From the prey, my son, you have gone up. He bows down and lies down as a lion; and as a lion, who shall rouse him?”
Israel’s Lion is our Lion too, but the scriptures reveal that the Lion operates differently with Israel. The Lion of Judah roars for Israel and defends her. (Revelation 5:5)
Micah 5:8 “The remnant of Jacob (Israel) shall be among the Gentiles in the midst of many peoples. Like a lion among the beasts of the forest, like a young lion among the sheep, passing through, he treads down and tears in pieces and no one can deliver.”
Even in their rebellion and subsequent dispersion The Lion preserves Israel.
If you mess with a lion while it is in full roar, it will attack you. The Lord’s roar is a sounding trumpet calling Jews home. Don’t get in the way.
Joel 3:16 “The Lord will roar from Zion and raise His voice from Jerusalem, heaven and earth will tremble. But the Lord will be a refuge to His people, a stronghold for the people of Israel.”
Hosea 11:10 “They (Israel) shall walk after the Lord. He will roar like a lion. When he roars, his sons will come trembling from the west.”
But Israel has rejected their Messiah. Their teachers and leaders have led them astray. Many churches of replacement theology have also set Israel up for slaughter.
Ezekiel 22:25-26 “The conspiracy of her (Israel’s) prophets in her midst is like a roaring lion, tearing the prey and devouring the people...Her priests have violated My law and profaned My holy things. They have not distinguished between the holy and the unholy and the clean and the unclean...”
Bear in mind that God’s purposes and plans for Israel will not cease. He brings them back to their land in spiritual blindness ready to open their eyes when home. This is why God required Israel never to assimilate into the nations when in dispersion.
That is one of the prime reasons the world at large hates Israel, and why the new world order crowd want so desperately for Israel to assimilate into their hell-bound “Babylon the Great.”
Ezekiel 11:16 “Thus says the Lord God: “Although I have cast them far off among the Gentiles and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet I shall be a little sanctuary for them in the countries where they have gone.”
►God forbade Israel from assimilating into the nations when in exile. We as Christians are to “come out and be separate” from the world too. (2 Corinthians 6:17)
The lion of Babylon / Rome:
Psalm 46:6 “The nations raged (roared), the kingdoms were moved. He uttered His voice and the earth melted.”
The duty of the true watchmen of the Lord is to see and proclaim the destruction of end-time Babylon – the world system.
Isaiah 21:8 (Set up a watchman.) “Who cries, ‘a lion my Lord!’ I stand on watch in the daytime and at night...He said ‘Babylon is fallen is fallen.’”
Amos 3:8 “A lion has roared! Who will fear? The Lord has spoken! Who can but prophesy.”
Babylon was a great city with a tower attempting to reach God, made with man-made bricks. The temple in Jerusalem was made with God-made stone hewn and cut at the quarry, away from the temple, so that no man-made workings would be heard near the temple. (1 Kings 6:7)
God destroyed Babylon and the tower of Babel, while Babylonian man destroyed God’s temple in Jerusalem.
The Tower of Babel corresponds to the Revelation 18 “whore of Babylon”. Babylon was deeply entrenched in witchcraft, paganism, occult practises and forbidden religion.
The Catholic church has a close identification with Babylon and its tower, which was an attempt to reach God man’s way.
The point of all of this is that man thinks his man-made life’s beliefs and religions are all good and acceptable to God. Man thinks that God looks down on his great achievements and good works with favour. But God will destroy all that is man-made without God in it.
Mankind has always wanted to set up a man-made new world. Of course these attempts were and are all failures. God’s kingdom and future Millennium is the true New World Order of peace.
●It was Mohammad, the father of Islam who had a dream in which he says Gabriel appeared to him and told him to conquer the world. ●It was the Roman Emperor Constantine, a father of Catholicism who had a dream of a cross in the sky, with the words above it: “In this sign conquer the world”. ●It was Hitler and his Nazi Party of WW11 that wanted to create a thousand-year new world order, by conquering everyone that did not meet their “Aryan” race objectives.
Rome under its ten successive Emperors murdered untold millions of people. Religious Rome under the popes, murdered millions in their “Holy Inquisitions,” as they tried to control the world. Islam has murdered millions in their quest for world domination. Hitler murdered millions in his quest for a new Aryan world order.
The end-time counterfeit new world order comes in on the wings of mass murder – of the unborn
The common denominator in all these attempts at a new world order is mass murder of those in opposition or who got in the way. Do you think it will be any different with the coming new world order – revived Babylon?
Babylon was made with man-made bricks and destroyed by God. Goliath’s weapons were made by man, but a God-made stone destroyed him. All the world empires in Daniel’s giant image are destroyed by a Stone from heaven.
All the nations of the world will gather to fight against Israel and Jerusalem in the final battle, with all their man-made weapons, but God will destroy them. (Zechariah 12:2-3)
The war of the Lions:
Choose your lion carefully!
The roaring fake lion of Babylon / Rome is about to attack the true Lion of the tribe of Judah on the battlefields of Israel. Who do you think will win this territorial battle?
The devil, as a roaring lion, with the lion of Babylon (end-time world), are at war with the Lion of Israel and the Lion of the church. The winner is obvious, but the losers are, and will create as much havoc along the way as they can.
If you are not saved, you have been deceived by a counterfeit roar. Your journey to hell begins in a valley – “the valley of decision.” (Joel 3:14) Your decision leads you into the “valley of the shadow of death.” (Psalm 23:4) You then progress to the valley of Jezreel, (Joshua 17:16) which is the valley of slaughter (Jeremiah7:32), and then finally to the valley of dead bodies (Jeremiah 31:40)
Do you know how stupid it is to back a loser when the war has already been fought and won by the Lion of Israel who is the Lamb of the church?
My friends the war is increasingly for your very heart mind and soul. You have the King of the beasts, the King of Kings and the Lord of the Lions on your side. You have no excuse to give up.
An insightful symbol:
Speaking of symbols, there are so many subliminal 666s around in logos today. There are also many symbols in the logos of the media companies, which speak volumes. I saw one the other day – a logo of a church organisation that was a clear 666!
The peacock was a Babylonian pagan symbol of pride. We know how Babylon’s pride ended and will end again! Many mass media companies have a peacock in their logo or emblem! Below are some 666 logos and the NBC / MSNBC/ Comcast media logo of a peacock of pride.
The ultimate foolishness is to reject something you nothing about. You will pay for your defiance of God. Be absolutely sure of that. As an unbeliever you will pay with eternal punishment. As a Christian, you pay with loss of eternal reward, but still be saved.
The mass media in their exalted pride are the devil’s mouthpiece and servant.
Psalm 94:20 “Shall the throne of iniquity, which devises evil by law, have fellowship with You?”
Amos 6:3 “Woe to those who put far off the day of doom and who cause the seat of violence to come near.”
Today like never before there is a great danger in rejecting the things of God.
●If you get rid of God you will get the anti-God. ●Get rid of the word of God and you will get the variable, lying word of the world and its media. ●Get rid of the kingdom of God and you will get Satan’s new world order. ●Get rid of the Holy Spirit and you get unholy, demonic spirits. ●Get rid of biblical doctrine and you will get false doctrine and the philosophy of man. ●Get rid of salvation and you will get self-exalted social justice. ●Get rid of heaven and you will get hell. ●Get rid of eschatology and you prove what an idiot you are.
The world thinks it will have peace if it kills the Lion, which is the Lamb. It thinks it can subdue the Lion of Israel! The world thinks it can get rid of the true church, Israel and the word of God. The world has the nastiest surprise of all surprises coming soon!
Proverbs 20:2 “The wrath of the king is like a roaring lion, whoever provokes him to anger sins against his own life.”
Deuteronomy 33:27-28 “The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. He will thrust out the enemy from before you, and will say, ‘Destroy!’ So Israel dwells securely...”
My friends, you are in the everlasting arms of a Lamb, which is in fact is your great friend - a Lion. That’s a picture of comfort and security.
This is a game lodge owner and conservationist friend of mine resting in the arms of one his lions at Mabula Game Reserve - Limpopo Province.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 547: November 10th 2020.
Ecclesiastes 8:5 “A wise man’s heart discerns both time and judgement.”
Note well from the verse above, that we are to know where we are in biblical or prophetic time. Note that a wise person knows and discerns coming judgement as well. Stupid people would ignore or avoid these things.
Discernment chooses which doors you will go through. Some doors you will be eternal grateful for going through, others will lead people on a magical mystery tour to hell.
The definition of discernment is: The ability to judge well; to be spiritually guided and led. It is to determine God’s will and desire, and it is to have understanding of spiritual forces of good and evil.
There are essentially two types of discernment, both of which are critically important and needed. Discernment of spirits is an exclusive revelatory spiritual gift, which comes only to those baptised in the Spirit. (1 Corinthians 12:10)
Then there is a more general from of discernment, which we could also call insight or deeper knowledge. This secondary discernment is made much more acute and active when discernment of spirits is at work as well.
Discernment of spirits must be a major weapon in your armoury and a close friend in these days. It gives insight into the invisible.
- The gift of discernment is a deception killer.
Unique to the end-time scenario is the intensified action of Satan, the activity of demons and spiritual forces of wickedness. Unique to these times is the arising of false teachers, prophets, watchmen and supernatural miracle workers that are counterfeits.
Unique to this time is the building of end-time Babylon (a new world order) with a new one-world religion and currency.
The issues all around us today, especially relating to the US election have become so intense, polarised, anger and hate filled. Have you wondered why?
They are a manifestation on earth of the giant clash in the spirit realm as prophetic things to come rattle the cages of demon spirits. Can you see this spiritual battle royale?
It is so important to have Spirit enlightened discernment today!
If you put two piles of things on a table with an invisible sign behind each, one says: “Things of God” and the other “Things of Satan.” Unredeemed man would automatically choose the ‘things of Satan,’ because he is blind to the sign. Redeemed man with discernment would choose the ‘things of God’!
Discernment of spirits is no magic wand though. Sometimes it just doesn’t work. That’s normally because our turkey brains gets in the way. But over time you become more sensitive to it.
There is an available, powerful anointing on the word of God, but beware there is also an unwritten, deceptive ‘anointing’ on the word of the world, man and the devil. Discernment is needed to see which authority is at work.
The humiliation of politicians:
Politicians of the world take note of what God is about to do, and without your approval or vote: He is going to destroy your attempts at world peace and put “hooks” in the jaws of many military masses and draw them into the great and terrible war of Gog and Magog. (WW111) (Ezekiel 38:4)
God will “finish the world’s transgression” and “make an end of sin”. He will bring in “everlasting righteousness”. “The government shall be upon His shoulders.” (Daniel 9:24)
God will be King, full of glory. His dominion will be everlasting! (Daniel 7:14)
Can you imagine these things being the mandate of a politician?
God will create a New World Order (the Millennium) that will humiliate and annihilate all mans attempts at all new world orders through history.
►Unsaved man’s god is self. His kingdom and government is the world. His spirit is the demonic realm. His word is the word of the media, politicians and all their puppets.
Can you see these things? Can you understand them? The Bible says that if you are not born again you cannot even see the kingdom of God. And that goes for Satan’s kingdom too.
Tragically, few have biblical discernment as they head down the road to doom.
Discernment, the deception killer:
Perhaps the greatest end-time deception is: “Everything will continue as it always has”. (2 Peter 3:4) This goes hand in hand with the great deception that there are in fact no end times coming anytime.
1 Timothy 4:1-2 “The Spirit expressly says in the latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons....having their conscience seared.”
2 Timothy 3:13 “Evil men and imposters will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.”
Colossians 2:4, 8 “This I say, lest anyone should deceive you with persuasive words...Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the traditions of men, according to the principles of this world, and not according to Messiah.”
Ephesians 4:14 “We should no longer be children tossed to and fro, carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in cunning craftiness, by which they lie in wait to deceive.”
You can and must use your gift of discernment as a tool of evangelism. When you can see the reasons for this or that and know the answers, while everyone is clamouring in the dark, you are a most valuable and effective witness. You can cause many to come to know the Lord.
Jeremiah 9:6 “Your habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know Me says the Lord.”
Witchcraft in the world and in the church is a great deception. Don’t think because you are not directly exposed to witchcraft that it is not a big end-time problem. And by the way, witchcraft is not just the traditional view, although those things are true too.
Intense rebellion to God is also categorised as witchcraft.
1Samuel 15:23 “Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft.”
These verses below are just a few of the many condemning all forms of witchcraft. (mouse-hover)
Leviticus 20:6, Deuteronomy 18:10-11, Isaiah 8:19-22, Revelation 18:23 21:8, Acts 19:19 8:11
There are some nations where witchcraft is a normal way of life. Europe today is becoming entrenched in witchcraft. Even Presidents, Prime Ministers, Kings and the like are steeped in witchcraft today – and it is growing to pandemic proportions.
The only way you can identify the spirit of witchcraft is through discernment of spirits.
There are none so tragic as the self-deceived! People are demonically deceived; they get deceived by the word of the world, and by false prophets and teachers.
1 Corinthians 3:18 “Let no one deceive himself...becoming wise in the world.”
Discernment based on biblical truth is your only hope, help and friend in these days.
As we head deeper into dark days you need every ounce of truth-backed discernment that is available to you to stay safe.
If truth is the new hate speech for the world, its new truth is untrue, error, wrong, transgression, false, variable, ever-changing, uncertain, and more.
You need to see these things clearly so that you can endure and stand strong and securely.
Psalm 112:4-8 “Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness...The righteous will be in everlasting remembrance. He will not be afraid of evil tidings. His heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord...He will not be afraid.”
How’s this for an epitaph? “Here lies Oupa. He was a good man.” Well, sorry Oupa, not good enough! You needed to be born again.
Amazingly every true Christian will never have a real epitaph because we will never die. God will give us a new name as we step into eternity. (Revelation 2:17) But look at the verse above again, and note - “The righteous will be in everlasting remembrance.”
Do you know that you will never ever be forgotten – forever! How amazing is that! People today get stressed out because they are not noticed and get rejected.
So, in these tough times, as a righteous one moving from darkness to light, if you could be given an epitaph it would say: “Remembered forever.”
There is such a proliferation of false teaching and false doctrine in the church today it is of utmost importance to be spiritually discerning in this regard.
Many times a big deception comes about in a church not by what they preach, but by what they don’t preach. This creates a half-baked Christian.
It is contemptuous to see that most of the word / faith prosperity churches continue with the same well-worn doctrine, while saying nothing on end time events, thus leaving their flock totally unarmed and unprepared and ignorant of two thirds of the Bible.
I fully believe the word / faith message, but now it has far too many missing ingredients for comfort.
“Those who have this hope (of the Lords coming), purify themselves.” (1 John 3:3)There is a powerful force in eschatology (end times). This is why churches that avoid eschatology are in so much trouble and becoming unholy rebels fast.
How can you live today without the anchor of hope of His coming, and the truth of all of God’s word alive and active in your life?
Discernment and sin:
Today like never before the world, including much of the church has enshrined sin. They love sin and evil. They do it, they proclaim and they spread it.
John 3:19 “This is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil (sinful).”
One of the most incredible statements by God relating to these end times and coming judgement is:
Revelation 22:11 “He who is unjust let him be unjust still. He who is filthy, let him be filthy still. He who is righteous, let him be righteous still; He who is holy, let him holy still.”
That means that these people have simply been given over. There hope is lost. Please be on the side of the righteous and holy!
Far too many Christians are being overtaken by sin and evil. It need not be so for you.
Isaiah 30:1 “Woe to the rebellious children, says the Lord, who take counsel, but not of Me, and who devise plans, but not of My Spirit, that they may add sin to sin,”
As you move closer and deeper into the things of God, something miraculous happens. You begin to overcome sin and you end up even hating sin!
Yes sin is removed through the cross, but we still have to actively avoid it.
Can you say this in agreement with the Psalmist?
Psalm 119:53 “Indignation (horror) has taken hold of me, because of the wicked who forsake your Word.”
Take note of these incredible verses below:
Psalm 119:11 “Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You.”
Psalm 51:4 “Against You only have I sinned, and done this evil in Your sight...”
Genesis 39:9 “...How can I do this wickedness and sin against God?”
1 John 5:4 “Whatever is born of God overcomes the world.”
When you see sin as an affront to God, you are on the way to victory, but to even begin to see these things you need spiritual discernment! You need to become one of those strange Bible loving freaks.
Spirit led truth is your best friend and comforter. The spirit of error will also be a friend to you and a comforter, but only for a while, and then it will kill you.
1 Corinthians 2:13-14 “These things we speak not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual, for the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God for they are foolishness to him, nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
Deception is designed to lead you astray and rob you of your victory. It is designed to rob you of your eternal rewards that are laid up for you. “Let no one rob you of your reward” (Colossians 2:18)
Colossians 1:28 “Him we preach, warning every man and teaching everyone in all wisdom, that we may present everyone perfect in Messiah.”
It’s a wonderful thing to be wrong and a Christian open to correction. That means you are about to be wonderfully right! Being corrected offends your ego and self-importance. So if you lay that down and yield to correction you are on the road to glory.
Discernment and Israel:
1 Chronicles 12:32 “The sons of Issachar had understanding (discernment) of the times, to know what Israel ought to do...”
We are about to see Israel come under pressure from her regular enemies, and maybe one of her lifelong friends, if the US election finally delivers the one-worlders.
Like the sons of Issachar you had better know your position on Israel well. There are evil forces trying to drag her into a new world order.
These things are all of major importance today.
This US election just passed is a classic example of a large group of people with no discernment at all. They can’t see what is right or wrong, good or evil. They cannot see the destructive end of their direction, vote and choice.
They have voted for Israel’ enemies! They will pay the price.
Discerning who to receive from:
Beware of the transfer of spirits!
Often evil spirits or spirits of error will transfer to a person without discernment and who has those doors open.
Many times a teacher or watchman who is repeatedly wrong has a group of followers, all wrong too, but very much of the same spirit. Beware who you give yourself to.
Matthew 24:4, 11 “Take heed no one deceives you...Many false prophets will rise and deceive many.”
2 Corinthians 11:13-14 “Such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Messiah. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into and angel of light”.
At the end of the day you become, to a degree, what you believe. Who you receive from is of great importance. Much of what your teacher says, rubs off on you.
Teachers and watchmen can influence the course of your life.
The church or ministry that has nothing to say on end times, or Israel, is to be avoided like the plague. Their silence is the deception.
Test the spirits. Know and be informed. Know the truth.
Today people run to the media for their advice and input. They run to their peers and friends who all feed off the same poison, then like blinded rats, they follow the piper.
Set your mind on things above.
The battle today begins and ends with the battle for your mind and thinking. For you benefit, I’ve just touched on the main points of these verses below to paint a picture:
“Think on these things”. (Philippians 4:8). “Cast down imaginations that exalt against God.” (2 Corinthians 10:5) “Set your mind on things above”. (Colossians3:2-5). “Renew your mind.” (Romans 12:2). “Keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You” (Isaiah 26:3) “Take every thought captive to the obedience of Messiah” (2 Corinthians 10:5-6). “Keep your heart (mind) with all diligence, for from it springs life”. (Proverbs4:23) “Renew the spirit of the mind” (Ephesians 4:22)
My friends, the way to discernment is firstly by believing God word and rejecting the world’s word. Seek discernment, desire it, and pay the price for it (knowing God’s word). Just do it!
People without discernment are like a ship tossed all over the place by every wind and opinion of man. They are easy to sway, influence, corrupt and be lead astray.
But for you, what is before you is the abounding great grace of God in the midst of an evil and crooked generation. Grace abounds, but judgement is coming in leaps and bounds for those who reject the grace of God.
Don’t miss the great opportunity to grow into a glowing eternally bright light, and remember that you will be remembered for time everlasting!
I took this picture of the beautiful rock-breaker fig tree on the side of cliff in the Limpopo region.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 545: October 27th 2020.
Newish world order (2):
The trumpets of doom are already sounding around the world, but the people are deaf to them. The trumpets of victory are already sounding for the church and we hear them! The Trump of the White House is getting ready to sound – again!
What goes around comes around!
So, the world thinks it can blow its trumpet of judgement on God, His word and His people! Biiiig mistake! It will and is already coming full circle back on their heads. “What a beautiful world” has become “what a stupid world”! The world has become a sick, crippled rat in the face of the Lion!
The days are noisy with trumpet blasts, and soon the big one is going to sound and we will be going – no jet plane required! Go we will – no looking back! Good, good-bye cruel world. I can almost see the Son in the clouds.
The US election:
If you’re an undecided voter, vote for the principle of God.
This is not a national election it is a world election! This election is about a new evil world coming fast, or being stopped in its tracks and being slowed down. This is no longer about Democrats or Republicans. It is about unrestrained devils and demons or a nation under God (to some degree.)
It’s about the world economy, it’s about Israel, and the approaching new world order.
This election is about the overthrow of the American dream and way of life and the forced bowing of the knee to socialist slavery in the guise of freedom.
Bowing the knee has become a politically charged symbol. But it was stolen from God.
Who will you bow the knee to? Think about it hard and long, because you will bow the knee. Every human will bow the knee. True believers have already bowed the knee at the foot of the cross.
Far too many have bowed the knee at the foot of demons arising from the dark steaming streets of evil politics. They will bow the knee to the living God – too late.
This election is about the war of the gods producing the war of the world!
►This election is about ancient she-priests arising in their androgynous, demonic form, creating a gateway to hell lined with transgenderism, genderless, bisexual, intersexual, ambidextrous, mechanised monster-men, gender -designed and engineered. This hybrid, soul-less monster-man is the creation of the ideals of the liberal left.
But there is nothing really new about it all. It’s as ancient as the world and was probably one of the reasons for the destruction of the pre-flood, pre-Adamic world.
It is all spiritually charged and represents Satan’s conquest of man and his attempt to create a better creation than God did. But this new liberal man, like the image of the beast, is dead inside. This new man is the walking dead.
Like the image of the beast it will be given the breath of a life form. But it will be the breath of the dragon!
On one hand the liberal left kills God’s creation in murder factories called abortion clinics, and on the other they are trying to create a new human, who would be nothing but a soul-less animal.
I say all of this, because it is happening right now and it is all being done by people of the liberal left. This election is about tripping up this endeavour.
This election is a referendum on whether America is a nation under God, founded to stand with God’s purposes for Israel, or a nation under Satan – doomed to bring down Israel and themselves.
One very powerful insight is that, according to prophecy, Israel will persevere and survive, but through turmoil. That means that the US, Israel’s prime pillar of support may just see the same fate.
The Democratic Party is leading a revolution of the redistribution of ideology and godliness values.
What is shocking is to see that many can’t see the spirits at work.
This US election, because of its place in time, is about so much more than a vote. You must understand that the Democratic Party is Satan’s “fall guy.” Poor old Joe is the front man of fall men.
A Trump win will see a delay in the march to the new world order. These are all very important issues. We await the answer with expectation.
The new world order has behind it the desire to create a new world of peace in sin. It is to create an order / home for sin to dwell in, because only the cross removes sin. It must therefore banish holiness, created by the cross, and its people.
The new world order must be exclusive. No cross-purified people allowed! No holy people welcome!
Think about this: Replacement theology replaces Israel with the church. The antichrist replaces the true Christ with the false Christ. Satan replaces holiness with sin. The new world order replaces the kingdom of God. But none will ultimately replace anything that is of God.
The pathway to hell:
The path is manipulation, intimidation, domination, to produce control. But control necessitates the nullifying or removal of choice. That sees the replacement of your choice, with the devil’s choice.
Mankind with free choice removed, or at least controlled, is like a leper – dead to pain. His conscience has been deadened and removed. That is the pathway to destruction.
Your role is significant as a believer. Understand the value of your Bible-based conscience and is effects in the nation and the world.
Does God destroy a nation because of its sin? If you listen to some of the always-wrong brigade out there who have nothing but negative things to say, you would have to yes.
But God does not destroy a nation because of its sin. Yes, sin will have effects and weigh down, and curse the nation, but we saw that God said He would not destroy the evil cities of Sodom and Gomorrah even if there were ten righteous people left in the city.
That is the key. You as a born again believer are the light and the salt of the nation. So, God destroys a nation because of its sin only when the light has gone out and when the salt has lost its savour. America, you are at this crossroad now. The Dems want to kill all that is of God so that the very conscience of the nation can be seared.
America is going down the tubes, but it may be that God will look on the remaining light and salt, to defer judgment. Don’t underestimate your importance, Chrisitan.
This lot is all being prefigured in a classic battle on the go now in California. This was the place of California dreaming, hippies with flowers in their hair, bikini girls, California surfing and more. Now there is an exodus of people trying to get out of the Democratic Party-created migrant stench and nightmare of lawlessness.
Back in the day, San Francisco, California was a real cool happy, hippy place. I spent some time there in the 70s with hair down to my elbows. I think it is encapsulated well in this song, “San Francisco” by Scott McKenzie. HERE
But, you see the hippie movement (and I was one) in those days was all about freedom, but freedom is not freedom if it allows freedom to be destroyed. There were few restraints and the occult came in like a flood! Think about that song and then watch Pastor Tom Hughes update on California today, below!
But, in the midst of the demonic Democratic madness the light and salt is at work amongst some great, powerful Spirit filled and led churches. Jack Hibbs is one and Tom Hughes is another. Well done Pastor Tom – brilliant!

At the end of the day, no one can stop the approaching tribulation period. (Thankfully no one can stop the rapture too) It is coming and perhaps in less than a year.
The tribulation of horror is coming. The verse below spells out the economic hardship and effects that will strike the world. But this will be after the rapture:
Isaiah 10:13-14 “By the strength of my hand (antichrist) I have done it, and by my wisdom for I am prudent; also I have removed the boundaries of the people and have robbed their treasuries; so I have put down the inhabitants like a valiant man. My hand has found like a nest the riches of the people, as one gathers eggs that are left, I have gathered all the earth, and there was no one who moved his wing, nor opened his mouth with even a peep.”
Romans 1:18-24 “The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which may be known of God is manifest in them. They knew God but glorified him not...and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man. God gave them up.”
Note in the verse above that God calls these people “fools”.
The Bible has an enormous amount to say about fools, particularly in these times. Here are few verses for your consideration:
Psalm 14:1 “The fool has said in his heart, ‘there is no God.’” Proverbs 11:29 “The fool will be servant to the wise in heart.” Proverbs 12:15 “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes. He who heeds counsel is wise.” Proverbs 14:3 “In the mouth of a fool is a rod of pride.” Proverbs 18:2 “A fool has no delight in understanding, but in expressing his own heart.” Proverbs 29:9 “If a wise man contends with a fool, whether the fool rages or laughs, there is no peace.” Ecclesiastes 10:2 “A wise man’s heart is at his right, but a fool’s heart is at his left.” Luke 12:20 “God said to him, ‘You fool! This night your soul will be required of you...”
The loving, forgiving arms of our Lord, the Lamb of God, remain open, forgiving, and welcoming to the flood of new believers coming into the eternal kingdom of deep peace. But don’t be complacent, and don’t delay. If you have not be born-again, beware, the Lamb is about to reveal that He is the Lion. This Lion will put all lions to shame!
The Bible talks of the wrath of the Lamb, evident in the tribulation period. The term, ‘wrath of the Lamb’ is out of character and out of place. It means that you are a fool to underestimate this Lamb!
The new world order and the New World Order:
To see what the end-goal of the new world order is we need to go back and see what the goal was of the original attempt at a new world order. It was the plan of Lucifer to exalt himself above God, usurp God’s position, be God, and receive worship. (Isaiah 14:12-17)
This was repeated in the Garden when Lucifer who had now fallen and became Satan, beguiled Adam and Eve into thinking they could “become like God” (Genesis 3:5) Then we saw the same pattern repeated in Babylon at the tower of Babel and numerous times since. (Genesis 11:4)
God cast Lucifer down. He cast Adam and Eve out of the garden. He cast Babel down to the ground and all the others. We see the same end in the scriptures for the current new world order attempt – end-time Babylon (world system).
The new world order crowd hate us because they know that our New World Order is eternal and deep down they know that theirs will last only seven years. They think we are a counterfeit of theirs. The truth is the opposite!
They can’t get rid of sin. They are married to sin. We have already got rid of sin through the cross.Sin has lost its power.
It is only the true born-again Christian that is like God. The Bible declares to the Christian: “Messiah in you the hope of glory.” (Colossians 1:27) Now the world wants the same thing. They want their god in them the hope of “glory” and world peace, but in continued sin and evil! It will never be.
The end goal of the new world order today is control and worship. But how do you get the world to worship you? You bring them under control and remove their free choice. That makes you a machine. They have to get rid of the choice-machine in people.
What is the choice machine? It is: “I have set before life and death, blessing and curse, choose life! (Deuteronomy 30:19) So, it is God who is the manufacturer of choice. So, to get rid of this, you must get rid of God and His word.
Far too many teachers, preachers and watchmen are talking all the time about the coming destruction. What destruction? No destruction at all is coming! Yes you read right; there is no destruction of any sort coming – to the Kingdom of God!
Oh yes, plenty is coming to the world and very soon. But where is your home? You had better worry if your home is the world! But what lies ahead for all who have the power of the cross working in them, is untold glory, rivers of peace, and all things spectacular, holy, and true. Can you see it? You must at least sense it.
The rapture is not primarily to remove true Christians from the wrath to come. It is also to switch from the times of the Gentiles to the times of the Jews. In fact one of the greatest pre-tribulation rapture verses is, “Jews will take salvation to the world in the tribulation”. This is the job of the church, but the church will be gone before the tribulation.
Isaiah 62:2-4 “The Gentiles shall see your (Jews) righteousness and all kings your glory. And you shall be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord will name...You shall be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord...You shall no longer be termed forsaken...You shall be called Hephzibath and your land Beulah, for the Lord delights in you.” (The name “Hephzibath” is an ancient Hebrew name meaning: “My delight is in her.”. The name “Beulah” means: “The land shall be married.”)
The true end-time message is the most positive anyone could ever imagine! In a nutshell it sees the destruction of all evil, the evil world system and all sin. It sees the coming of untold majesty, magnificent, and eternal victory in holiness forever.
The end result is a holy, pure, righteous glorious supernatural, miraculous existence in a supernatural body, built by God for eternity, in a home of amazement, built by God, and all of this, in a new world of glorious creatures, and plants, strange angelic beings, and red setters.
If there is a Trump Landside victory, don’t for one moment think the devil will sit back in defeat. He will be back. The US will be given a reprieve again, but the big end-time train is rolling – ready or not.
Galatians 6:7 “Be not deceived, God is not mocked...”
American, you can go forward into the deep, dark, demonic night with fear and trepidation, or you can stand against the evil with your vote.
“Do not go gentle into the night...rage, rage against the dying of the light.” (Dylan Thomas 1930)
I took the picture of the king protea in my garden and mixed in the other. I did both using the light-paint technique.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
