15th January 2021
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Who owns your truth?
Jeremiah 2:11-13 “Has a nation changed its gods, which are not gods? But My people have changed their glory, for what does not profit. Be astonished O heavens at this, and be horribly afraid. Become very desolate says the Lord. For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters and hewn for themselves broken cisterns that can hold no water.”
Many people are at a crossroad right now. Which way they go will bring them great victory or deep darkness!
Jeremiah 13:15-16 “Hear and give ear; do not be proud, for the Lord has spoken. Give glory to the Lord your God, before He causes darkness, and before your feet stumble on the dark mountains, and while you are looking for the light, He turns it into the shadow of death and makes it dense darkness.”
Job 21:14 “They say to God, ‘depart from us, for we do not desire the knowledge of Your ways.’”
We have a growing divide right now between the godless liberal left and those that stand for a nation under God. The divide is actually correct, because “two can’t walk together unless they be agreed.”
O f course political parties don’t agree that’s normal, but all should agree on one ultimate authority and provider of truth – God and His word. The basic principles of the virtues of God should be held in esteem above the law of the land or politicians in all nations.
The removal of the word of God from society places it in godless jeopardy with Satan and his word now the authority. Pelosi is a good example of that. So many things get removed from society when the Bible is removed including the all important four swords revealed in the Bible:
●The sword of murder, ●the sword of Capital punishment, ●the sword of war, ●the sword of the Spirit.
If you remove the Bible’s definition of murder (homicide) it sends a message of tolerance with crime and destroys deterrence. If you remove the sword of capital punishment, you meet out injustice to the victim. If you remove the sword of war, you create a nation of push-over pacifists. If you remove the sword of the Spirit, you remove the authority of the believer and make him defenceless.
This is the way to weaken a nation right at its foundation. It is the way of liberals!
You need to be aware of this and the intensifying evil spirits at work otherwise, you are in big danger.
The great reset will produce the great eternal regret at the end of the day.
You can attack the truth, but remember, God owns the truth. You are attacking Him. The Bible may bleed for a few seconds, but it will be you who will eventually and eternally!
God owns the truth, and if the truth is in you are owned by Him and are unshakable, safe and secure. The truth is unbreakable and unchangeable. It will break those who try to break it, it always does.
The political mayhem is one side of the present day troubles. The mutating virus is the other. Both are changing the very face of the world right before us.
On top of the socio-political upheavals on the go, the virus is mutating and spreading faster than before. These things are all causing great stress in the world.
►Will things return to normal? Absolutely not! A vaccine is not a substitute for repentance. You can’t take a pill or get a vaccination to remove the results of the disease of sin! (I am in no way coming against those who take the vaccine. I’m talking generally)
Will God accept a vaccination instead of repentance?
Things can only return to normal if we are far from the whole end-time train rolling in. We are not far, but very close to the whole picture unfolding.
Why is God calling loudly for repentance now through so many of His voices? It is because time is running out fast and He wants people as holy as possible, ready for heaven at the rapture. He is also preparing Israel for a sudden return to holiness, so that they can be effective witnesses and evangelists in the tribulation period.
It’s also because the world’s wickedness has gone into overdrive and is speeding up. It’s because of where we are on the grand prophetic calendar.
(By the way, I have some incredible revelation of some familiar verses on the rapture and Israel, which I will share soon. It will destroy some deeply held, but incorrect views.)
Don’t you think it’s interesting that the church has failed in her commission to the Jew, while the Jew in the tribulation will be very successful in taking the gospel to the Gentile!
The big reason for the rapture is not the great escape, although that is quite true. It is to bring in the last Gentile and then see the veil removed as the gospel goes to the Jew.
Matthew 23:37-38 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often have I want to gather your children together like a hen gathers her chicks under her wings. But you were not willing! See your house is left to you desolate.”
When Bible prophecy is on the march, what a terrible thing to be left behind and right out of it, with no idea of its existence and relevance!
►1 Thessalonians 5:20 “Do not despise prophesies.”
The word “despise” is Strong’s G1848 ‘Exoutheneo.’ Meanings: Despise, set at nought, make contemptible, not to be esteemed.
This verse above means you had better wake up fast to Bible prophecy, even if your parrot behind the pulpit won’t touch prophecy.
Most importantly, it also means that presumptuous, always-wrong prophecy teachers and watchmen are the very ones causing prophecy to be “set at nought” and “made contemptible, not to be esteemed”
False watchmen are prophecy killers and faith killers!
Proverbs 12:19 “The truthful lip shall be established forever, but a lying tongue is but for a moment.”
For your edification:
You need to be spiritually strong in these days. You must be clearly defined in who you are spiritually and in all areas of your life.
We have as part of the church the happy clappies and hands up church (me included) and the no-happy, no-clappies, hands down, boring, dead, denominational non-spirit filled crowd, with no insight except that of the world.
Even if you are not in a local church you need to be demonstrative in your walk with our Lord. Once you are Spirit filed, even in your home alone, raise your hands in prayer and clap your hands, and if your dog bites you, serves you right for hiding your spirituality.
Edition 69. 14th January 2011
In this edition:
●Wise words of old (part three)
Wise words of old (part three)
●This edition is aimed more at your heart than your head. You can know many things and still have a rotten heart. You can have a heart after God and be in ignorance of much truth. Both a soft heart and a head of wisdom are needed. Please also see: "Wise Words of Old" parts one and two. They are: edition 17 and edition 40.This is the third in the "Wise Words" editions. I've divided it into two sections. The first is a collection of some of my favourite words, from God. These are living words that have become a part of my life. They are more important than any words that have ever come from the mouth of any human being ever.
The second section is a collection of quotes from one of my favourite men of God. These are men who've been influential in moulding the foundations of my life. They're old-school disciples, who are long gone, but with a living, deep message. If these words were relevant back then, they are much more so for the neglected hearts of today's superficial, self-centred believers.
*** Please be aware that many of these quotes are from memory as the original books are long gone. Therefore they may not be word for word. It's the message that counts.

Psalm 30:10-12 "You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, to the end that my glory shall sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God I will give thanks to You forever."

Jeremiah 33:3 "Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty which you do not know."
Wise words from men of God:
A.W. Tozer (1897-1963)
●"If I see aright, the cross of popular evangelicalism is not the cross of the New Testament. It is rather, a new, bright ornament on the bosom of a self-assured and carnal Christian. The old cross slew men, the new cross entertains them. The old cross condemned; the new cross amuses. The old cross destroyed confidence in the flesh; the new cross encourages it."
●"The world is perishing for lack of the knowledge of God and the church is famished for want of His presence."
●"As sunlight falls on an open field, so the knowledge of the holy God is a free gift to men who are open to receive it. But this knowledge is difficult because there are conditions to be met and the obstinate nature of fallen man does not take kindly to them."
●"These quasi Christians follow a quasi Christ. They want His help, but not His interference. They will flatter Him but never obey Him."
●"To be Bible taught and not Spirit taught is a great error."
●"The Pharisees looked straight at the light of the world for three years and not a single ray of light reached their inner beings. The gospel is light but only the Spirit gives sight."
●"Self is the opaque veil that hides the face of God from us. It can only be removed by spiritual experience, never by mere instruction. There must be a destructive work of God in us before we are free. We must invite the cross to do it's deadly work within us."
●"The man who takes up his cross will soon find that he is moving away from the grave. Death is behind him now and a joyous increasing life is before him."
●"Because the world is whitewashed, blind people posing as believers can't see it at all.
●"A whole new generation of believers has arisen believing that it is possible to accept Christ without forsaking the world."
●"To accept Christ means that we are to accept His friends as ours, His enemies as ours, His ways as ours, His rejection as ours, His cross as ours and His future as ours."
●" When we are too glib in our prayers we are speaking to ourselves."
●"We can prove the quality of our truth by its effect on our self-life God must have our full consent to kill and displace our self-life with Person of Christ. Another certain test is this: What is its effects on our relationship to the world. A further test of the genuineness of our spiritual experience is its effects on sin and our desire for holiness."
●"Our Lord cannot fully bless and use a person until He has fully conquered him."
●" You can and must make your thoughts a clean sanctuary. Our thoughts are the decorations inside the sanctuary where we live. Your thoughts pretty much decide the mood and climate of your heart."
●"Be hard on yourself, easy on others. Bear your own cross, but don't lay one on another's back."
●"Compromise will take the pressure off. Satan will not bother a person who has quit fighting. The cost of quitting will be a life of peaceful stagnation...a cost we cannot afford."
●"Satan cares little whether we go astray in false doctrine or become stagnant. Either way he wins."
●"It would be near impossible today to get anyone to attend a meeting where the only attraction is God and a cross of death to be taken up."
●"Grace saves, but it doesn't save you and your idols."
●"If your life does not worship God, your lips do not worship God either."
●"It doesn't matter how many times you've been through the Bible. It's how many times its been through you.".
●"Refuse to be average, let your heart soar as high as it will and your roots be grounded in God. This is the way to an abundant, fruitful life."
Derek Prince (1915-2003):
●"Islam has 99 names for God, none of then - Father"
●"When God promises to bring Israel back to their land at the close of the age, He still calls it "your own land". In God's sight the ownership of the land has never changed or never will."
●"The Bible never reveals it's secrets to the casual enquirer, the curious or the irreverent sceptic. To them its foolishness."
●"When you fear God you fear nothing else".
●"We must push alone into God's glorious divine presence. Moses was branded by God as he sought Him alone. Jacob wrestled alone with God before becoming Israel. Paul sought the Lord alone in the desert for 14 years before his ministry really began. Daniel had dramatic celestial encounters alone with God. Jesus fasted alone in the desert for 40 days. John saw into the future alone on Patmos".
●"The need for solitude and quietness was never greater than it is today."
●"The Bible is the prison window of this world through which we can see the glories of eternity. If you have the Bible deeply embedded in your heart you are truly free from the world's prison."
●"A single sentence from the mouth of God has more wisdom than all the books of the world."
●"All roads but one lead to Rome and eternal judgement. Only the road lit by God's word leads to eternal glory."
●"We need to understand that God doesn't just tolerate us, His favour is upon us! He is passionately committed to us. We don't have any reason to doubt our access to Him."
●"I'm convinced from the scriptures, that poverty is a curse. If not, why do you work so hard to get rid of it? If it's a blessing, why not pursue it."
●"Satan makes slaves, God makes sons."
●"Our basic problem is that we don't realise how valuable we are."
●"The key to happiness is not being loved, but having someone to love."
●"God is concerned with the restoration of two peoples to whom He's related by covenant, which He has declared He will never break. The first is Israel and the second is the church."
It's only with a heart and soul surrendered to our Lord and His word that we're really able to soar like an eagle and break free from the chains of bondage, depression, stress and everything else that comes with the territory of this world.
It takes time and diligence and denial of self to break into this glorious liberty, but, it's worth every little bit.
we are fast entering what the Bible calls "perilous times". This will seen on every front and will cause many to fall away and become spiritually shipwrecked. This tragic time will deter many from their God-given calling and place in our Lord's body.
This is the time to strengthen your foundation and everything that's been built upon it by God. The storms are coming!
In the midst of spiritual anarchy, chaos on every front, and terrible times, God has a plan of victory for those that will walk in His ways. Please don't neglect your heart. Cleanse it and fill it with our wonderful Messiah's word and ways.
The most important thing of life, with eternal consequences is to know God and be known by Him. How do we get Him to know us? 1Corinthians 8:3 "If anyone loves God, this one is known by Him". Here is the amplification of the original words used. "If anyone loves God truly, with affectionate reverence, prompt obedience and grateful recognition of His blessing...he is known by God."
The frightening opposite to this is recorded in a number of verses relating to professing Christians standing before God in judgement- "Depart from me, I never knew you."
Jeremiah 5:22 "Do you not fear Me, says the Lord, will you not tremble at My presence."
Daniel 2:22 "He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him."
Heaven or hell:
Old man, you've been blessed with a very long life. What did you do with it? Did you live for yourself or did you live for our Lord? Did you take the trouble to know God? Did you prepare yourself for eternity. Did you simply follow the traditions of your people or did you break free into God's plan for your life? Once you step over the line into eternity, it's too late to make any changes!
Old lady you.ve also been blessed with a long life. What did you do with it? What a tragedy to be given a long life and waste it all. What a tragedy to have many years of potential growth in the grace of Gods will and to miss it all and be cast out into an eternal hell. Very soon you will know whether you've made the biggest mistake anyone can ever make or not!
Here is a painting representing the Apostle Paul by Rembrandt.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace!
