|This ministry has a distinct kingdom, Messianic vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for the Jewish people and the church. My position is pre-trib! Personally: I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share these great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God.|

What the world wants is a better place. They are working to try and bring peace to the world. They want a better life. Satan will oblige – for a while! Then comes swift, sudden destruction. The funny thing is that the people of God have already found what they’re looking for: Eternal peace, victory and joy. God’s “better place” is already here! The kingdom of peace is here, in our hearts and is soon coming in full universal manifestation!
Colossians 3:1-3 “If then you were raised with Messiah, seek those things which are above...set your mind on things above, not on things of the earth.”

Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah and to identify the rift, and the needed restoration. There is much in the church that needs to change before it can be fully reconciled with the Jew. Likewise, changes in Jewish thinking are also needed.

Shabbat Shalom to all:
The devolution and decline of society:
We have just started the season of the feasts of the Lord, with Purim a few days ago. Purim is all about the failure of Israel’s enemies to defeat her. Purim is centred on Esther, who was chiefly responsible for saving her people. Are you called to be a modern “Esther?” Many readers are!

The spirit of error, untreated, advances like a cancer and mutates into a curse. Teachers or leaders who’ve fallen under a curse then become cult-like with an equally deceived following. I have witnessed many people fall right into this trap of late.
Some have turned on me with a vengeance calling me various names because I don’t and won’t support their doomed error, and because I warned them many times!
When you constantly resist and reject the things of God in favour of error, or rampant sin, you get “handed over.” (Romans 1:24-26) At this point, pride takes control and your conscience is seared and your free will becomes an enslaved, slave, controlled and dominated by the god of sin.
Enduring error, because it is a spirit, produces strife, stress and argument with God. “There is no peace for the wicked,” (Isaiah 48:22) no matter how much they cry, “Peace, peace!” (Ezekiel 13:10)
As goes the spiritual, so goes the natural! This is a spiritual principle. A lot of the reason for the chaotic, devolving world is the compromise of the modern church! For example the sequel or fallout of replacement theology in the church is seen in anti-Semitism in the world.
When God and His word are cast down by society, it has terrible knock-on effects. The nation begins to fall. A nation under God does not mean a born-again nation as such. It is a nation which has employed, elevated, and respects general godly biblical principles for a nation.
Throw God’s word out and the slippery slope of doom begins. Life becomes valueless except as a political football to score points, as we see so clearly in the mass-media.
The world walks over God’s word, which they have cast down. But the believer walks through God’s word ingesting it, consuming it and filling himself with wisdom and light!
In a world where God has been cast out, godless educational institutions become the gates of hell for the youth.
When God is removed from society, law becomes lawlessness driven by the law of sin and death. The church becomes a democracy and a dead tool of the system. When you forsake the law you are a law unto yourself and “yourself,” is fully blinded to spiritual reality.
When God and His word are cast down, Israel would have to fit in with the world-system and submit to the evil god of inter-faith and to Islam’s goal. The Jews would become nothing more than political chess-men, and Jerusalem becomes the devil’s pawn.
When God and His word are removed from society, the true born-again Christian must also be rejected or removed by persecution and martyrdom.
When God’s word is cast down, salvation becomes a mere, dead word and nothing more than a change in political ideology to suit the god of the world and his doomed hordes.
Right now we are seeing a massive worldwide spike in the martyrdom of Christians. The mass-media keeps their biased mouths closed, resulting in few being aware of it.
The mass-media hates God and His own. Their bias has turned from prejudice to hostility and now open hatred. This is clearly seen in their silence on the massive increase in the killing of innocent Christians worldwide.
►For the true Christian, martyrdom is the ultimate slap in the face for their murderers and supporters by the surrogation of silence. The martyr is promised special eternal reward, over and above other rewards he will receive.
The martyr dies, but receives the eternal Crown of Life!
It is the unsaved Jew, the Muslim, the counterfeit Christian, and the like, who should weep and howl and mourn with many tears when they are killed or die. They are not saved. Don’t cry for the true Christian martyr! Cry for yourself, lying mass-media, and destroyers - you are the ones who need a lot more than sympathy!
Here are just a few verses I’ve put together which succinctly describe the course of this present world. I’ve not included any comment. They speak volumes:
●Those who forsake the word (law of God) will praise the wicked”. (Proverbs 28:4) ●“There is no truth or mercy, or knowledge of God in the land, people break all restraint, with bloodshed after bloodshed and the land mourns.” (Hosea 4:1-2) ● Righteousness stands afar off, for truth has been cast down in the street”. (Isaiah 59:14) ●“Horror has taken hold of me because of the wicked who forsake your word (the law of God)”. (Psalm 119:53).
2 Thessalonians 2:11 “For this reason (not receiving the love of the truth), God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie.”
Job 38:15 “From the wicked their light is withheld...”
Psalm 36:9 “In your light we see light.”
You can’t live in peace in error! You can’t make peace with the devil, especially on his terms, and in violation of God’s word. There is a peace with the devil, which comes about when he has conquered a human heart, he has victory then, but it is the victory of hell. (Isaiah 14:9)
Psalm 43:3 “Send out Your light and Your truth; let them lead me and bring me to Your holy hill.”
Psalm 60:4 “You have given a banner to those who fear You, that it may be displayed because of the truth, that your beloved may be delivered.
Edition 31. February 28th 2010
In this edition:
●The power of the cross
●The power of the human
Godism or humanism
1Corinthian 2:2-4 "For I determined not to know anything among you except Christ and Christ crucified. I was with you in weakness in fear and trembling and my speech and preaching was not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and power...Your faith should not be in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God"
Two ways before us:
If you read the verse above again, you'll note that there are two life options being presented by Paul the apostle here.
The first is: I am a crucified person, laying aside my wisdom and human knowledge, which leads to Godly wisdom and power. The second is to have a lot of persuasive wisdom in line with human thinking. This way is devoid of God's power. It has an illegitimate power source.
Obviously this relates to everything in life and not just prophecy, but I want to point out how different the two are in relation to prophecy and why many misguided Christian leaders will actually be responsible for leading many to hell.
The big error is to ignore or avoid the application of the cross.
Yes salvation comes through believing in the crucified, risen, coming - again Messiah once and for all, but there is a continuing work of the cross after salvation. Paul says "I die daily" He says in another place "Its not I that lives but Christ who lives through me". He says "I must decrease and He must increase"
Jesus says "If you want to be My disciple you need to take up your cross daily and follow me".
So we see that there is a vital, daily, ongoing work of the cross that needs to be applied. The main area of this application needs to be into the mind or thinking realm.
There is so much "I think" in Christian circles and very little "this is what God says"
The world the flesh and the demonic:
The devil works in the lives of believers through an attachment to the world, the flesh nature and the demonic. Unfortunately we are all subject to this through birth into the family of Adam.
We need to apply the cross to get victory in these areas on a regular basis. If we don't they will grow in power and eventually defeat us. We need the ongoing work of the cross in our lives.
If not, you will be no different to the world. You will still be drawn to the ways of the world, the flesh and have demonic powers at work. Your thinking will be in line with all the good ideas of the world. Your wisdom will be the wisdom of the world. Your entertainment will be that of the world. You will be full of the bondages of the flesh and you will be empowered by the devil.
Matthew 10:38, 39 " He who doesn't take up his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me .He who finds his life will lose it and he who loses his life for My sake will find it."
John 5:35 "You can of your own selves do nothing" The self life has to be laid down and replaced with Gods ways.
The above two verse are key to success in this life. These verses use a play on the original words for life. "Lose your life" uses the word 'psuche' which is the word for soul life. The word psychology is derived from it. Then it says that if you lose this soul area of life you'll find life. Here the original word is 'zoe' which refers to eternal life of the spirit. So to find and grow in the God kind of life we need to lose or replace our human reasoning and the soul life with His way of thinking.
Galatians 2:20 "I've been crucified to the world and the world to me."
There is an exchange that takes place. As I (soulish) decrease, He increases!
The entire Christian life needs to be motivated through the energy of the Spirit rather than through the energy of the flesh.
The prophetic Word spells out the rise of humanism in these days. 2Timothy 3:1 "In the last days perilous times will come, for men will be lovers of themselves (or big mouth lovers of self opinion)"
The Humanist Manifesto declares "Man is finally becoming aware that he alone is responsible for the realisation of the world of his dreams, and that he has within himself the power for this achievement." This sounds great but its the way to hell.
Only true Biblical Christianity stands against the exaltation and glorification of self.
Self is a powerful deceptive, counterfeit authority and power.
If your church does not teach and preach the application of the cross on a regular basis run away from it fast.
If you think these things are not important how about this: Revelation 12:9 speaks of the "beast who deceives the whole world" This is in the tribulation period, not far from now.
The impact of cross-less Christianity on prophecy:
Today much of the institutionalised, organised corporate church is prophetically stone deaf! Satan has replaced the prophetic Word with his word. It comes in the form of a great successful long - term future, devoid of coming judgement on the world. Christian humanists have presented a complete mischaracterisation of the entire prophetic plan of God. They've taken out everything that they deem objectionable.
Satan's plan for mankind is deceptive, it comes dressed as good. It' essentially born in the mind of Satan and manifests in the human mind or un-crucified self-life.
Let me give an example. A few days ago I was in a restaurant waiting for my order. I well dressed man came in, stood around and then walked up to me. Out of the blue he started telling me about a number of very great things that were shortly going to happen in my life. Then he tried to give me his card and get me to come with him so that he could give me a full fortune telling reading. I said no thank you and he left.
That was the a Satanic attempt to get me into his world, tempted by good things.
This is exactly the way of humanism in prophecy. It gets rid of all judgement, and essentially says that everything is going to be good and alright. You don't need to repent or get right with God or go His exclusive way. You don't need to 'deny self', 'come out and be separate from the world'!
You can do it, yes you can, you can be successful says the devil and I agree, yes you can, but it's the way of futility if its through self effort.
The Bible clearly teaches through many prophecies that judgement is coming on a Christ-rejecting world. It's human good and its evil will all come under His judgement soon.
Amos 3:7 The Lord does nothing unless He reveals it to His servants the prophets first
John 15:15 "All things I have heard from the Father, I have made known to you."
Jeremiah 23:22 "If they had stood in My council, then they would have announced My words to My people, and would have turned them back from their evil ways and deeds."
The above three verses are deeply profound. God is not confused. His prophetic Word has been given. He has spelt it out. It's not His fault if many Christians water down His prophetic Word and apply all sorts of allegorical interpretation.
Its not God's fault if the divided church speaks with an unclear sound or voice. God has spoken!
1 Corinthian 14:8 "For if a trumpet makes an uncertain sound, who will prepare himself for battle?"
She believed that it was her duty to help dying people in her hospice. If they were Hindus, Muslims or Buddhists or anything else, her job was not to interfere with this, but to comfort them in their slide into a Christ-less eternity. Before she died she rejected her faith in a letter to the Pope saying that Christianity was too exclusive. Many people think she was great because of her works.
Jesus lays out what discipleship is. He says, "Go into all the world making disciples among all nations, teaching them to observe all things I have commanded you."
This way of truth is often very different from the world's ideas of things!
True Success the Bible way:
There is a very good way to know if you are on the road to Godly success or living essentially for self.
The Godly way may not be easy at first. It involves much re-adjustment and much forsaking and denial and pain that comes from the application of the cross. BUT it is the way of inner joy and inner peace. The Spirit of God will bear witness in your own spirit that you are on the right track.
Proverbs 14: 12 "There is a way that seems right to man, but it's end is the way of death."
Tragically, I heard a friend say that he only really got to know God and His prophetic Word after he left his previous church!
The perilous times and dark days that are coming are a result of humanistic self-orientated believers leading the church into ever-increasing apostasy.
The ways of modern man and much of the modern church will lead you to great counterfeit success! It will lead you away from the ways of God and potentially to hell.
Modern humanistic psychology has entered the church in a big way. It ignores the application of the cross. It dethrones prophecy and presents it as allegory if at all. The humanist way is the way of self love, self glorification, self motivation and ultimately paves the way to hell.
John 16:33..."In Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world"
2 Peter 1:4 "You have been given exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust."
Heaven or hell:
Old man, one day soon you'll have a new body that will not ever be bent over with heavy burdens. It will be a body that will never age and will live forever. But what an enormous burden you'll have forever if your new body is imprisoned in hell because you rejected the free gift of salvation offered by Yeshua / Jesus.
Young woman, I don't know what your burden is, but I do know the answer. Its the peace and joy of God that comes from knowing our wonderful forgiving Messiah. His ways are the ways of release from stress and bondage. His love will set you above the ways of the world and give you hope and victory.
In closing this edition here is a painting by Marc Chagall showing the crucified Christ above a throng of people. The cross is the answer to all the arguments and opinions of man.
|I have walked with our King, Lord and Saviour since 1976 and can testify to the fact that He is eternally faithful, all loving and ultimately the very essence of life itself. Things get better, deeper, richer and filled with purpose as we go forward into all the glorious new things that He has laid up for us|
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace!
