|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.|

- Iran says: “The world knows we are not pursuing nuclear weapons.” So, why do want to destroy Israel, as you have said many times.”
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!
“Expectation”: One simply little word with so much meaning!
Bible prophecy creates in us great expectation and excitement and hope. It brings things from the spiritual dimension into reality.
But as you can imagine, it does the opposite when the expectation is built on false prophecy, error and pure lies. It then all works in reverse. The failure kills the expectation, the excitement and hope. It actually goes much further in wrecking evangelism and other related Christian issues.
So when these Christian counterfeits come up with all these new dates for the rapture and others things found in prophecy, do they think of the damage they are causing to others? Of course not! – All they think of is themselves on a pedestal.
Rather than enhancing the gospel, they are attacking it!
Well, we have just had the giant failure of the July 17th 2019 rapture predictions made by many of those who published You Tube videos and teachings on how “for certain” this was! “It’s 100% for sure,” they said. “The Lord told me” they said. “I had a dream about it” they said. The rapture is July 17th2019 they assured all their gullible fans.
Their evidence was of course totally shockingly inadequate, superficial and absurd, to say the least!
The problem is their influence on the weak and gullible.
Let me clarify my position on the rapture again. Firstly I which it was yesterday!
►I believe that the most possible scenario is on the Feast of Trumpets. This would be one in which the other prophecies on the ground all dovetail. The Feast of Trumpets qualifies because it is the only one of the seven that could start over one of two days. Remember the Hebrew idiom and name for the Feast of Trumpets: “The Feast of which no one knows the day or hour!” This is because “No one knows the day or hour of the New Moon’s sighting. It does not mean: “No one knows the time!”
There are many other amazing aspects to The Feast of Trumpets and its associated meanings and applications, which I deal with as we get closer. But again, I say, there are many things that must be dovetailing together, otherwise – back to the drawing board!
With all of these date-setting failures in mind and the multitude of other attacks on Christians and the word of God, it has and will thrive until its grand conclusion!
Just think of it: Christianity began with 12 ordinary people, they were all martyred for their faith. The gospel spread around the world at lightning speed, and is still doing so today. And yes you are one of the participants of it all.
- Heaven is already rejoicing at your coming! (Luke 15:7)
- Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming...” Isaiah 14:9
You will receive a welcome into eternity! Which of the two verses above will be your welcome?
When the good news of the Kingdom arrives it marches in and kills the evil spirits of witchcraft and creates and makes new communities of glory growing forever outwards.
Do not grow discouraged by failed date-setters. Protect your faith and strengthen it. Keep your expectations and hope high. Be very discerning. Be holy now.
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 be holy still.”
Edition 35. April 4th 2010
In this edition:
●The Nostradamus (and others) Deception
●You may have noticed that I've removed all Google ads from this website. The reason is that certain cults, disguised as Christian, repeatedly change their names so that they could be "allowed". As soon as I blocked one, it re-appeared with another name. So Google isn't that clever after all!
The Nostradamus deception:
●I would encourage you to read edition 23 on the power of the media as a supplement to this edition.
This article is the result of a flood of new documentaries recently aired worldwide on the History Channel. Some titles include "Nostradamus 2012", "The Nostradamus effect" and others dealing more generally with 2012 and related subject matter. I believe that Hollywood has also jumped on the bandwagon with some similar movies, which I'll ignore.
One thing you can be very sure of is that the unsaved world is incapable of being led by the Spirit of the living God. Hollywood in particular is a total playground of demons. It is led by the spirit of its god, the devil himself all the way through.
●The History Channel (broadcast on various cable / satellite TV networks worldwide) is not much better. It mixes truth, error and deception to suite the story. Sensationalism sells, but we need to bear in mind that truth is the issue. Yes the Bible is full of incredible sensationalism, but IT alone is the full truth. Mixing truth and error is much the same as mixing poison into a good steak.
●Programs being broadcast on National Geographic are more and more becoming a disguised attack on truth. There have been new programs giving credence to other books that the Holy Spirit did not include in the original Bible, like the gospel of Thomas and others. Other programs examine things like the flood of Noah, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. They come up with so-called natural phenomenon explanations. This of course denies the supernatural, and most importantly the judgement of God. National Geographic is a champion of the devil's religion of humanism.
James 3:11, 15 "Does a spring send forth fresh water and bitter from the same opening...this wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic."
The History Channel presents the teachings of Nostradamus, the Mayans, the Aztecs, the Hopi Indians the ancient Egyptian and Islam as collective truth. These may have some similar tenants to Bible prophecy but this does not make them the truth. Satan is a deceiver and comes an an angle of light.
Who was Nostradamus?
He was a French seer of the 1500s with Catholic roots. He was also well known for his research and manufacture of various herbal mixtures. He was expelled from university for this. He then moved into the study of the occult and changed his name to Nostradamus. He wrote 6,338 prophecies, some in trance-state. Many were based on various end-time prophecies of the Bible, which he knew well, but he twisted and added to them in various ways. He hired himself out to give psychic horoscopes. One of his clients was queen Catherine de Medicis. He admitted that his primary source was the occult.
Most ignorant people point to some prophecies of Nostradamus that were supposedly fulfilled and then give him huge credit. The truth is that most of his prophecies are so vague and nebulous that you can make them say almost anything! The fulfilment rate is therefore just as nebulous.
The images or paintings and sketches recently unearthed that are now being called the "Lost book of Nostradamus" are equally as vague. you can read all sorts of things into them.
I most certainly understand that Satan does know much about the future as well and does "share" his knowledge with his disciples, but beware, there is poison mixed in here.
The world will not end in oblivion as claimed in these programs. The present world system (socio, political, economic) or order will end with the second coming of our Lord and then a whole new world order of glory, peace, love and joy will come into place for 1000 years on this same earth. It will be purified and restored to the way it was supposed to be, and the way it was before the fall. The curse on nature that came about at Adam's fall will be lifted. Everything that is wrong with the environment will be put right by our Messiah.
Yes monumental troubles are coming first, and yes billions will be killed in the tribulation period, but there will also be a great revival during the time period, which of course these programs say nothing about. They are spin- doctors of fear, hopelessness and failure.
The Armageddon deception:
The battle of Armageddon will not occur in 2012! It will have no similarities with the Nostradamus prophecies at all. Armageddon occurs right at the close of the seven-year tribulation period. If it is to occur in 2012, we would be well into the tribulation now, which we are not in any way. Armageddon is a very short conflict in Israel, which sees our Lord destroy all the armies of the world and enemies of God gathered in Israel then.
Christ Himself puts an end to Armageddon, not the military powers of any nation.
Armageddon will involve demon spirits of various forms manifesting in various ways and satanically charged armies of people. It will culminate in their destruction and the setting up of the millennium and the reign of righteousness for 1000 years.
These programs present doom and gloom without hope and coming glory. They show and present a world deteriorating fast largely at the hand of man. They're mostly right about that, but what they don't show is the fact that Christ paid for the sins of man on the cross. He paid for all the evil, all hatred and all conflict on the cross. Our Messiah will return not with a crown of thorns but a crown of eternal glory.
He will not return as a gentle Lamb with forgiveness but as a roaring lion with judgement. Now is the time for forgiveness and salvation, don't wait until it's too late! "The Spirit of God will not strive with man forever" says the Bible. By the time the world gets to Armageddon it will be too late.
Other deceptions in these programs:
Satanic cults, the Aztecs, the Mayans, the Hopi Indians ancient Egyptians and Islam are some of the others quoted in the History Channel programs. Credence is given to them above God's word! They all have some prophecies of coming destruction. This does not make them right. For example one program declares that Jesus will return to the earth with the Muslim Mahdi and put an end to war, setting up a world of peace. What they don't tell you is that Islam believes this, but that Jesus, the prophet, will be subject to the Islamic Mahdi! (have they got a surprise coming!)
The Bible truth:
The Bible shows very clearly in thousands of portions of scripture that huge conflicts, upheavals, disasters, and destructions are coming soon. It is all part of the judgement of God on a Christ rejecting world. Many of them will be far worse and severe than presented in these programs.
Gods time clock for all of the end time events to kick off, is Israel and not earthquakes and natural upheavals. Yes nature will throw a wild tantrum as these things approach, but the only time that they are significant is when aligned and combined with all the prophecies relating to Israel.
Biblical evidence supports 2011 rather than 2012 as the start of these events, or the start of the tribulation period. See edition 9 for more on this.
Conclusion...The bottom line:
The big satanic bottom line presented by the History Channel is this: They say to prepare for the coming of Armageddon you need to be good. Do good works they say. They close the programme by quoting from Islam..."you need to be and do many good works."
The big Godly bottom line is that you need to be saved and set free. You need to know our Lord and His word. Good works are only acceptable to God after salvation and once you've been born into His family.
The big Godly bottom line is that the Bible reveals massive disasters, troubles and judgements of God coming soon, while hope, comfort and peace is coming to those that are His. The Bible reveals that you had better be filled with fear and terror if you are not born into God's family. Gods word is true. It reveals what is coming, how its coming, when its coming and what you can do about it. Only the fullness of Bible prophecy adds up and falls into place like a giant jig saw puzzle.
The big bottom line is that only the true God offers real hope in His salvation plan. None of these false prophets offer any such thing! None but the Bible shows how to be gloriously saved and walk in freedom, victory and joy!
What is the point in being warned about the coming antichrist, wars, tribulations and troubles and remaining unsaved, destined for for hell?
Be warned on this: Adding to or taking away from Gods word always produces a cursed result! A little bit of truth doesn't make error right.
Seek our Lord and His truth:
The entire end-time message if rightly and fully understood and presented is a very powerful tool of evangelism. Everyone wants to know about the future. It is up to the believers to study these things out, to know all about them, to be able to offer a defence and correct interpretation of the soon-coming earth-shaking events and to offer salvation, hope and victory to those that are searching
Romans 8:18-21 "For I consider the sufferings of this present age, not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of all creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God...because the creation itself will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God."
1Thessalonians 4:17,18 "Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and thus we shall always be the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words."
Nahum 1:2 "He reserves His wrath for His enemies."
Heaven or hell:
"Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision" says the prophet Joel (3:14). There will be multitudes who will look on the horrors that are coming and be very sorrowful. They will reject salvation and trust in themselves. Many will curse God because of His judgements on the world. This will be the beginning of their eternal suffering, which will be far worse than the seven-year troubles coming upon the world soon. These troubles are for a short season. Hell is for eternity.
Great multitudes will look to our mighty God for salvation in the coming cataclysmic days and find it. They will leap for joy as the true and living God of glory brings hope, peace and promise into their lives. They will cry with excitement, knowing that our Messiah, King of the universe is about to judge the world and bring in everlasting glory.
In closing this edition here is a painting done by Michelangelo of the prophet Joel. He was given incredible insight into the close of this age and coming world conflict. He saw the judgement of God on the nations at the time when the world was trying to divide the land of Israel (Joel 3:2) He is the prophet who declares: "Prepare for war, wake up the mighty men...let them beat their ploughshares into swords. But unlike Nostradamus, Joel says: Turn to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping and with mourning".
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace!
