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!

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.

●Truth and Error
●The rapture and second coming compared.
What is truth
Most people are unaware that the entire time period relating to the coming of our Lord on the wings of truth, also has with it the coming of the devil or antichrist as a counterfeit lord, whose entrance onto the stage will be with all error, unrighteousness and deception.
In many situations, truth is illusive, but it is of monumental importance in this day. According to Bible prophecy it will become more and more attacked, questioned, rejected and replaced. The Bible says that "truth will be cast down in the streets." The only way the devil will be able to "deceive the whole world" (Revelation 12:9) during his final performance will be by interfering with and casting down truth.
The measure of all things is Godly truth. It is not your church doctrine. It is not the beliefs of this denomination or that. It is not all the Babylonia occult- errors of the Catholics and their evil twin the Anglicans. It is the pure Word of God straight and neat!
Amos 7:7 "Behold the Lord stood on the wall made with a plumb line and with a plumb line in His hand....Behold I am setting a plumb line in the midst of My people Israel; I will not pass by them anymore." The plumb line hangs straight and shows if the wall is also straight or not. God's plumb line is His word. Truth is exact.
We are to build our lives with the plumb line of God's truth.
Truth and error travel the same highway, but are inspired by two different Gods. In this edition I want to have a brief look at both truth and error and the many incredible things associated with the subject.
Our Messiah said "I have come to establish the truth."
Truth and error are essentially spirits. The Bible talks of the "Spirit of Truth and the spirit of error". (1John 4:1-6)
One day you will not stand before your priest, pastor, reverend or rabbi. You will not stand before any Hollywood celebrity or hero. You will stand before the living God and judgement will be "according to truth" If that is the case (and it is, mark my words) don't you think it's kind of important to examine the subject and be calmly settled in truth?
In the last days "lawlessness (no truth) shall abound and the love of many will grow cold" (Mathew 24:12) We are heading for dangerous days.
Bible truth must be read or interpreted in a literal way as much as possible. The allegorical method of interpretation foist into it anything the interpreter desires. Obviously there is allegory in the scriptures. For example Yeshua / Jesus is called the "Lamb of God". He is not a lamb. That is allegory. But you can't apply allegory to anything you like.
The key to all interpretation is within the Bible itself. Bible prophecy was fulfilled in an exact literal way and will continue in that manner. Many church leaders today have appointed themselves as God's editor! They have a shock coming!
Characteristics of truth:
There are many characteristics of truth, but here are just a few:
Truth is clean, it's holy and pure. Truth will always leave you deeply satisfied. Truth sets you free indeed. Truth is not variable or relative, it is absolute. You can't have 2+2=4 and 2+2=5. One is absolute truth and the other not. Truth can never sit comfortably with error.
Truth has triplets which accompany her. They are the indwelling Spirit, love and mercy. "When He the Spirit of truth has come He will lead you into all truth."(John 16:13) Without the fullness of the indwelling Spirit through the baptism of the Spirit, there is no guarantee to be led into truth! Truth without love and mercy becomes legalistic. The Spirit of God leads you into truth and love and mercy tempers the application of truth.
Spirit led truth may show mercy and tolerance. It may operate in love towards an enemy, but it will not bend the truth. The person may be shown love but that doesn't mean he is not an enemy anymore (although that may be the end result)
Not one of us has ever come to the full truth immediately. It's a progressive journey of wonderful discovery. God does not blow us away because we are ignorant of truth. The key is to be open to it and humble before our Lord. Then He will lead us in love and mercy into all truth.
Truth without love becomes legalistic, while love without truth becomes tolerant of all evil. Truth and legalism are terrible twins.
Truth sets free!
"God gives grace to the humble and resists the proud" (James 4:6) The key is to maintain an attitude of humility before God and His word. The big thing that humility does is that it allows you to see clearly. It opens the door to spiritual light and sight!
The way to truth and preservation of the truth within you is actually very simple indeed. All you need is a soft broken heart before our Lord and then simply ask Him for understanding and wisdom.
The Bible declares that a "tree is known by its fruit" Truth has many wonderful glorious fruits. Some include: Unity. love. joy, peace, kindness, goodness, gentleness, self control, understanding and wisdom.
God's will is not for all people to be saved. "God desires all people to be saved AND come to a knowledge of the truth." (1 Timothy 2:4)
Characteristics or error:
If truth comes through humility before God then error comes through pride before God.
The spirit of error is unclean, it accommodates and tolerates all types of evil. It will lead you astray. The spirit of error may sit comfortably with many other errors, but it will never sit comfortably with the truth. The spirit of error will always persecute or attack the Spirit of truth. The spirit of error is the way of the majority
Accidental error always has hope of correction, but the real danger with error is that it almost always comes in on the wings of pride and arrogance. All heresy and false doctrine is birthed in pride. The big thing that pride does is blind you. So if you are essentially spiritually blinded, you are in greater danger than you can imagine.
Haven't you ever been amazed at just how difficult it is to get unsaved people to see the truth?
John 8:43 "Why do you not understand My word? Because you are not able to listen to My word. You are of your father the devil."..."He who is of God hears God's word." (vs 47)
2 Corinthians 4:4 "Whose mind the god of this age has blinded who do not believe lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ who is the image of God should shine on them."
2Thesselonians 2:1-11 "Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him...let no one deceive you...The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan with all power and lying signs and wonders and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth that they may be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie."
The above three verses are absolutely frightening! Can you see it? In each case a lack of belief results in being blinded by the devil and by God! If both are at work preventing you from coming to the truth, you will not see truth, no matter how hard you try. Can you see how important it is to have a soft heart of belief towards God and His word?
Truth and error have nothing to do with how clever you are. Many very clever people are in rank error when it comes to the all important things of God. It's all about the condition of your heart!
Error always leads to confusion enslavement and imprisonment. But beware, if your heart is hard towards God, you will also "sear your conscience" and be in much greater danger than you can imagine. That's like having no nerves in your hand. You won't feel any pain when you put your hand on a hot plate! A person with a seared conscience sees, feels, knows or cares about nothing but himself.
Error leads to confusion!
If a "tree is known by its fruit" then error has many of them.
One important fruit of error can be seen in the un-teachable attitude of these people. It is seen in their bad character traits as well.
On a church level, today many are filled with the rotten fruits of Babylonian occult practises that have filtered down through Catholicism. These trees of error have poisoned a great many.
Fruits of religious error are also manifest in the appearance of pope's, priests and bishops. Their symbols and dress is nothing but the pride of separation above the people.
Another major fruit of Catholicism was the dark ages and the imprisonment and mass murder of a great many Jews and others in the inquisitions. (I will soon do an edition on some of the horrifying Satanic icons, statues and images depicting Lucifer in the tunnels and secret rooms under the Vatican.)
The biggest danger is truth mixed with error:
Religious error is a product of "Another Jesus" (2 Corinthians 11:4) He is a counterfeit and of another spirit and his 'truth' comes very close to the real thing.
A huge danger facing the world is truth mixed with error. Obama and his evil 'sister' Oprah are at the forefront of this. The bottom line behind their religion (born in hell) is that there are many ways to God. Each person has their own idea of God and way to God and all are equally valid. This is like religious communism. "Of course a loving God would never send anyone to hell, all will be accepted," they say. The work of the cross and the blood of Yeshua / Jesus is meaningless for salvation, they believe.
This is very widespread and growing. They take many verses of scripture relating to love and things like that and twist the context. They exclude other portions of scripture, which doesn't fit with their ideas. It looks good because it has bits of so-called truth mixed in.
Truth presented in a legalistic way is just as wrong as error. Some may have just the right words, but they use them as a baseball bat! There may well be a time to use truth as a sword, but it must be through the clear leading of the Spirit. In fact this is only for more mature believers. The job of a baby is to eat the right food and grow up. Adults play baseball!
The mixture of truth and error doesn't sanctify the error. Truth may tolerate error for a short while, but the error will always remain so.
The Bible declares "Does a spring send forth fresh water and bitter from the same opening?"
Think about these things:
Truth produces unity. 2+2=4. That's it. We who believe this are in unanimous automatic untiy.
Error produces confusion and division (denominations). 2+2=4, 5, 9 anything you believe.
I was chatting to a friend the other day, who had just got saved. She said, "it's so confusing trying to find a church". She was very right! Many church leaders will encounter the "terror of the Lord" one day soon as they stand in judgement for the mess they have created.
The pursuit of truth:
A person may be known by what consumes their thoughts and actions. In a day with so many divisions and errors all around us in the religious world, the pursuit of truth is vital. The very first thing we need to do is make sure that me, myself, I is on the cross. The way into the depths of God's truth can only be found with self on the cross. In fact it is the absence of the cross that has produced so many divisions and denominations! The modern divided church is the product of proud man's best shot.
As we grow in the grace of God's wisdom and truth, it's a mighty, wonderful thing. When we see something from God's treasure trove we are often surprised that others can't see it also. "Can't you see it, don't you understand you dumb idiot"
We need to be careful of the attitude which easily springs up in us of trying to prove others wrong and ourselves right. If this is our motivation we are equally as guilty. Now, of course its good to be right, but how we handle it is the issue.
Examples and dangers:
Imagine setting off on a journey to a city 1000kms to the south. You intend to obey the rules of the road. When you get close to your destination you see a sign saying 50kms to a city 1000kms north of your starting point. You did well, you obeyed the rules of the road. The only problem is that you went in the wrong direction. This is the great tragedy of a great many people! They are just going along blindly with the flow, presuming that their leaders are going the right direction.
The answer is to wipe the slate clean, take off your religious glasses and begin afresh with God's word as the supreme thing.
I recall being completely deceived by a religious crowd way back in the late 1970s. I quickly lay myself before our Lord and began to study His word. I read my Bible cover to cover three times, which took about three weeks each time. This really was the start of a glorious walk to freedom. I then began to study it in depth and still do to this day.
A good very simple example of truth and error and the massive impact on untold millions of people is in the translation of one word in the Bible. The Old King James version, is a translation from the Latin. It is venerated by the Catholics. It uses the word 'Easter.' in Acts 12:4. The New King James version, which is translated from the original and is the best by far, uses the word 'Passover.' The original word used is Pesach, which means 'Passover'. Then in 1Corinthians 5:8 we are told "Let us keep the feast." The original word here is Pesach meaning Passover.
Easter is derived from the Babylonian sex goddess Ishatar. This is why rabbits and eggs are part of it. They are both symbols of fertility. (See edition 21 for much more)
The Catholic Pope of the day excommunicated some poor guy called Anatolia for celebrating Passover and not Easter, many moons ago! Way to go Anatolia!
Today virtually the whole Christian world practises or celebrates Easter and not Passover and on a different day!
Many believe the great error that infant sprinkling (baptism) saves you. This error comes from a Babylonian occult practise!
The truth is that adult baptism after conversion, through the new birth is required. That makes many people mad!
Beware when your measure of truth is church tradition!!
Unfortunately many people will hate you with a passion when you challenge or reject their traditions. But let's see what God says: "You make the word of God of no effect through your traditions handed down." (Mark 7:13)
Some priests, bishops, and pastors will go to hell because they are not saved and teach others that salvation comes by being basically good and becoming a church member!
The Bible says that the salvation plan is so simple that a "child and a wayfaring man will not go wrong in it." You need to be born again it says. You need regeneration, not church laws.
I don't know how many times I've sat in some dumb church and left thinking "Is that all there is. Is that all they have to offer" and what they did offer was just some motivational ear-tickling rubbish!
The church is supposed to be the bastion and protector of truth. I would encourage you to read edition 11 on the seven messages to the churches in the Revelation "glory and horror"
Truth according to the mass media is pure error. Satan is the god of this world and the media is his mouthpiece. Of course the media may report truthfully on something like an accident, but they will almost always be wrong on anything with spiritual overtones. Their agenda is that of the devil himself.
Case in point: The world's road map to peace in Israel presented by the media is pure error. It's the road map to war actually. In many situations if you apply the opposite you will be nearer the truth. For example CNN may present Obama's "many ways to God" in a story. The opposite is the truth. There is one way to God.
The danger is that many people erroneously think that because something is in print or on TV or the movies or comes from some celebrity it must be true. Error has huge masses of gullible followers!
Truth opens your eyes and lets God into your life, error blinds you and lets the devil in and keeps God out.
Truth will always leave you fulfilled and deeply satisfied while error will always leave you unfulfilled, uncomfortable, uneasy, unsure and stressed. (Unless you have seared your conscience)
Bible prophecy is truth and is essentially the eyes of the believer. If you are not in this truth, you are in danger. You wont know where you are going or what's coming and will be ill-prepared.
The pursuit and finding of the gospel truth will give you glimpses into eternity and lead you in the beauty of holiness. It will strengthen you and inspire you on your journey to perfection. You will be able to face the future and face God with confidence, while much of the church and the world around us gets shaken to its very foundation in the coming days.
The big question is...are you free? are you truly free indeed? Are you free from the devises of religious divisions or denominationalism? Are you free from the devises of the god of this world? Are you free from trying to prove others wrong and yourself right? Are you free from the bondages of sin? Are you free from the entrapments created by celebrity and Hollywood and the opinions of man? Are you growing in the truth?
If so, then you can say "The truth has made me free indeed." (John 8:32)
Psalm 25:9 "The humble He teaches His truth. All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth."
Jeremiah 29:13 "You will find Me when you search for Me with all of your heart"
Jeremiah 15:16 "I found Your words and I ate them and Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart."
Heaven or hell:
Old aboriginal man, our God has made a way for you to be saved. You need to get saved to go to heaven. Your occult errors and traditions handed down from generation to generation have not made you free. You are in a prison of your own making, which will be immeasurably worse in hell, unless you break free from the chains of bondage and accept the work of the cross and the cleansing blood of our Lord.
Young kid...what is in your future? Will you go blindly the way of your fathers and ancestors or will your beautiful eyes look upon our magnificent Messiah as He welcomes you into His glorious Kingdom. Will our Lord say to you one day, "well done good and faithful servant" or "depart from Me into eternal hell." Please make the right decision when required!
"Till we all come to knowledge of the truth" This is the Isaiah Scroll, one of the dead sea scrolls containing the book of Isaiah in its exact form. I've superimposed into it the painting by Rembrandt of a rabbi. Today there is a growing number of rabbis who believe in Yeshua Ha'Mashiach (Jesus the Messiah) Soon there will come a time when Jews will come to the knowledge of the truth in great numbers. It is written!
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace!
