- Israeli election: The final result is still up in the air, but it seems like Netanyahu will be able to put together a coalition favouring Likud and himself, as at 21st September.
- Oil wars have the potential to cripple the world economy. When the US attacks Iran, Iran will attack Israel and "pop goes the weasel!"
- New US imposed sanctions on Iran's banking fraternity will further cripple their collapsing economy. = Hooks in jaws? (Ezekiel 38:4)
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
Isaiah 42:16 “I will bring the blind (Israel) by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known, I will make darkness light before them and crooked places straight.”
Micah 7:8-9 “Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; when I fall I will arise, when I sit in darkness the Lord will be a light to me...He will bring me forth to the light, and I will see His righteousness.
Isaiah 29:18 “In that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of the obscurity of darkness.”
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.
20th September 2019
Shabbat Shalom to all!
The exciting wait:
We remain in an impasse relating to the Israeli election outcome, and many other prophetic developments.
It’s as though God has put His finger on the pause button. It won’t be for long!
Don’t you just wish things would get moving and hurry up?
We must not try to ‘move’ things ourselves, in our time instead of looking to God to move in His time. But to be fully on His side, we need to grin and bear it!
I do expect things to suddenly escalate, perhaps in a most unexpected and dramatic way. Once the ball does get rolling, it is likely to roll very fast. One thing I do know for sure is that at the end of the day, everything will have worked out God’s way exactly and in His exact time. So we can rest (impatiently) in that!
The recent Iranian attack on Saudi oil Installations needs to be addressed.
Why did Iran hit Saudi Arabia? These two nations have been at each other’s throats for years. They have a deep rooted ancient hatred for each other’s brand of Islam. It is primarily a religious conflict.
Saudi Arabia was the home of the queen of Sheba in the Bible. It is identified as the land of Sheba and Dedan (Ezekiel 38:13), which is WW111 also called Gog and Magog. (Dedan is Yemen today)
Interestingly, the Ezekiel prophecy aligns Sheba (Saudi Arabia) with a group of nations which can be identified as the major western nations including the USA of today. This alliance is Israel-friendly as revealed in that prophecy, as they come to Israel defence.
What is so interesting about this is that only a few years ago this sort of alliance (Saudi Arabia, the US, Israel) would be so far out of the question!
The point is that Iran with pre-loaded religious hatred for the Saudi’s, now sees this alliance with whom they call the “great Satan” and the “lesser Satan,” the US and Israel.
Add to this Iran’s attempts to hit the world economy through its lifeline of black gold – oil.
Add to this the consistent, repeating statements of extreme hatred for Israel by Iran. If you have an arch-enemy who repeatedly says he is going to destroy you, that should raise you to action.
And then finally, what Iran really hates is the fact that Israel has been chosen by God for His purpose and that the US has been chosen by God to stand with Israel. So it’s a conflict with strong spiritual undertones as well.
Now, let’s add to this the fact that Bible prophecy has a 100% fulfilment record. I think it’s not a good idea to own property in Iran now!
So, looking at all of these factors, I hope you see how volatile, unsettled, unstable and explosive it is.
In these days particularly, we are in desperate need of prophetic glasses. We need to see, know and understand what the ancient scriptures have to say. If not danger of deception lurks!
Israel is the real target. That’s not surprising.
Tragically, and unbeknown to them, the churches of replacement theology are allies of Iran and enemies of God’s plan for Israel. Many churches are silent on the issue. Silence is tolerance and compliance!
Baa, baa black sheep have you any wool? Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full – all full of deceptive disease. That’s the state of many ministries today relating to Israel!
So, how do you think it will all play out? The Bible tells us.
The Jews have a chilling chant relating to the Holocaust – “never again” but tragically, the Bible does reveal that a new holocaust, very different to the original will occur on Israel’s way to glory. The world has learnt nothing and neither has much of the church!
Israel please know and understand that there is a fast growing community of Christians who love you, and God’s plans for you, who stand with you and for you, and pray and fast for you regularly.
Iran is stirring in her final hatred for Israel. Iran has said numerous times that it wants to wipe Israel off the map. Well, guess who gets wiped off the map?
Jeremiah 49:36-37 “Against Elam (modern Iran) I will bring the four winds from four quarters of heaven and scatter them towards those winds. There shall be no nation where the outcasts of Elam will not go. I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies and before those who seek their life. I will bring disaster upon them, My fierce anger says the Lord; and I will send the sword after them, until I have consumed them.” (Ezekiel 38:5 = parallel.)
And here is a message to Iran about Israel from God:
Isaiah 61:7 “Instead of your shame (Israel) you shall have double honour, and instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess double; everlasting joy shall be theirs.”
That's God’s “final solution:” Iran get's wiped off the map and Israel gets double honour!
Jeremiah 24:7 “Then I will give them (Israel) a heart to know Me...”
Do you hear the trumpet? Do you hear the knocking at the door of your heart to be ready?

News events and comment.
●Turkey says Syria is at the 'point of no return' and could drag the whole region into conflict.
●Netanyahu warns: "Arab Spring is pushing the Middle East backwards."
●Russia's PM, Medvedev is at war with the missile defence systems of the US and Israel! "Russia beating the war drums" says the Debka Files. Medvedev announces measures to ensure that they can destroy the command and control systems of the US anti-missile defence systems in Europe. Those systems are also linked to Israel's defence systems.
●The "Occupy Wall Street" movement reveals it's true colours. The Miami, US version says" Israel should be nuked" and the "Jews should go back to the ovens." Anti-Semitic chants have occurred in numerous other "Occupy" events
●Egypt: At the Muslim Brotherhood rally on Friday 25th November Chants are heard. " One day we will kill all Jews."
●Iranian General, Yadollah Javano threatens: " We can strike anywhere in Israel".
●Iran's parliament votes to downgrade Britain .Then parliament erupts with chants "Death to Britain."
●German Die Welt says North Korea is supplying Syria with nuclear technology.
●Syria says that new sanctions imposed on it are a "declaration of economic war." As the Arab-led sanctions against Syria were announced Russia sent a new shipment of missiles to Damascus. Russia opposes sanctions against Syria.
The image above is particularly interesting to me. On the right is a giant image printed onto fabric of Gaddafi. It was rolled out at a rally while he was still in power. On the left is Syria's Assad surrounded by his followers at a recent rally.
Only a megalomanic psychopath would see himself as so big and important. Assad is a more dangerous psychopath than Gaddafi was, because he is secretive, quiet and calculating, while Gaddafi was an in-your-face madman. Iran's Ahmadinejad (picture with nuclear symbol) is also deeply psychologically disturbed. He is another classic megalomanic psychopath. Mega means big and the definition of a psychopath is one who is emotionless in his pursuit of domination and control. Dangerous people!
A new Hitler is emerging. Iran's Ahmadinejad will have allies with him!
The world, it's end and new beginning
What is the world?
It amazes me how little of this subject is known or recognised by the modern professing church. Modern churchianity just isn't on the cutting edge of Biblical truth. They continuously spit out the same traditional stuff. Of course the Bible says that the "lukewarm church" will be spat out by God.
The world is not the earth.
The world was made by man while the earth was made by God.
The two original words used in the Bible are completely different. The word for world means the socio / political / economic order. We could say that the earth is dressed with the world. The word for earth means the physical earth including the land, sea, mountains etc.
Some say the world will never end. They are right and wrong. This current world order will end soon and a new one is coming under the government of our Lord and Messiah.
The nature and characteristics of the world:
1 John 5:19 "The whole world lies under the power of the wicked one."
2 Corinthians 4:4..."whose minds the god of this world has blinded..."
Revelation 12:9 "So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world."
1 John 2:15 "Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him."
Romans 12:2 "Do not be conformed to the world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind."
John 15:18-19 "If the world hates you, you know that the world hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own
James 4:4 "Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God."
John 12:25 "He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life."
John 16:33 "These things I have spoken to you that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."
1 Corinthians 3:19 "For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God..."
1 Corinthians 2:12 "Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God..."
Colossians 3:2 "Set your mind on things above, not on things of the earth."
1 John 5:4 "Whoever is born of God overcomes the world."
Lets string together the main points from these verses:
Satan is the world's deceiving god. It's wisdom is foolishness. The world loves its own. Believers are in the world but not of it or it's spirit.
Perhaps the most amazing verse above is 1 John 5:4 In the original it implies direction. That is most important. This is one of the prime ways and methods to evaluate your own spiritual life and that of others (not from a condemning point of view but from a pure Biblical point of view. "A tree is know by its fruit.")
Can you see how powerful that verse is especially in today's lukewarm spiritual climate? If you are truly born of the Spirit of the living God, you will be overcoming the world and its ways!!! If you are no different to the world and you love its ways, you are not born a again! Don't argue with me and send me emails. Argue with God. That is what He said plain and clear!
Today most Christians are completely one with the world. They're nicely comfortable within its traditions, entertainment and all its ways. They are no different to the world except for a few words that they say.
At a critical time like this many don't know what real genuine repentance is or means in relation to the world. Many churches don't preach or teach or even touch on this subject. Their churches are no better than a Mickey Mouse circus.
The world loves its own and inspires them through the media, traditions, entertainment and the like. (Please see Edition 23 titled "The power of the media" for more on this)
Very few Christians realise that they are slaves of the world and it's god, Satan.
Now of course we are in the world, but we are not to be of its spirit. There must always be a tension between you and the things of the world.
When we are moving in the right direction we will know it deep within our hearts We will have that still small voice guiding us and leading us. We will be filled with the fruits of the Spirit.
The ways of the world are a cheap substitute for the fruits of the Spirit of the living God.
Will the world end?
The earth will not end, but the world will soon come to a bitter, bitter, terrible, terrifying, horror-filled end.
Because the world is the product of Satan it will end in judgement. God's new world will be one of perfection, purity, holiness, glory, and restored creation.
You may be thinking "I thought the Bible says that God loves the world" It says no such thing. The Bible says God so loved the world THAT He sent His Son to save whosoever would believe on Him out of the world. It goes on to say that he that doesn't believe is already condemned with the world!
"How can two walk together unless they are agreed?" says the Bible. The answer is they can't! Satan's world and God's world will never agree.
Only that which has gone through the purifying work of the cross of Calvary is in agreement with God and will endure.
The present evil world will end before many think. It's time is running out fast.
Almost every Bible believing preacher these days is unanimous on the fact that we are in the very latter part of the latter times for this world. We can't know the time exactly but we can know a great amount about the season.
You may not believe all these things, but I tell you, you are a fool if you don't prepare your heart and mind for the soon coming of our Lord.
How will the world end?
The world is essentially a product of its evil god, Satan. It must be judged and destroyed. The final destruction of all evil, demons, fallen angles, Satan himself and all the unsaved, is part of God's love, as He purifies the universe for an eternity of holiness.
The creation of hell is all part of greater love. The original word 'Agapao', means to 'love with social and moral implications'. It's much like the traffic cop dishing out speeding fines. That's part of the creation of a safer world. It's love in action towards the law abiding drivers and citizens. (That reminds me, I must go and pay my speeding fine.)
We are very close to the most dramatic events in all time. The final catastrophic climax of the ages will be played out, culminating in the seven-year tribulation period. This will be ended by the Second Coming of our Lord. At this time every remaining unsaved person on this earth will be cast out to hell.
The stage for the climax of the ages will be the Middle East and Israel in particular, but the whole world will be involved.
Zechariah 14:2 "For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem; The city shall be taken, the houses rifled and the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into captivity, but the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city."
Zechariah 12:2-3 "Behold I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem and it will happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all people; and all who would heave it away will be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it."
Joel 3:2 "I will also gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat and I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land."
The above three verses reveal prophetically that all nations will come against Israel and in fact all nations will come against God and His plan.
This is the big stage where the world will see its end. It will all happen in the final seven year tribulation period.
This seven year period will not only involve the world in military conflict, but it will also see the most incredible judgements of God on the world. This will include the fury of nature unleashed like never before as well as huge purely supernatural events.
There are many believers who have no idea, not the foggiest idea of what the tribulation period will be like. The judgements of God will run through the full seven years, but intensifying in the second half.
I really hope and pray that those who believe in a post tribulation rapture do not get what they want! The tribulation will be pure terror on earth.
You see, this will be an event incomparable to any that the world has seen.
Let's try and put things in context.
The world was shocked at the Nazi Holocaust, where some six million Jews died. The world was shocked at the 2004 Tsunami which killed 250,000 people.
How many will die in the tribulation?
The first thing that we must know is that although there will be numbers killed that are too hard to fathom, it will at the same time be the metamorphosis of the Jewish people at large. This will be when the Valley of Dry Bones miraculously comes to life. Ezekiel 37:11 "These bones are the whole house of Israel."
This will come as a huge shock to many. Others will simply refuse to believe it and return their heads to the sand.
Please don't send me emails saying that this is not love or you don't agree with the Bible numbers. Rather send your emails to God and let Him speak to you.
It's obviously impossible to know the exact numbers, but the Bible gives us many insights into this nightmare to end all nightmares.
The numbers will also be dependent on whether there is a pre-tribulation rapture or not. If there is a pre-trib rapture (as I believe) a huge number of people will be gone before the tribulation. Again it's impossible to know the exact number.
Let's use the Bible numbers and figures.
Isaiah 24:6 "Therefore a curse has devoured the earth, and those who dwell in it are desolate. Therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned and few men are left."
Jeremiah 25:33 "In that day the slain of the Lord will be from one end of the earth to the other. They shall not be lamented or gathered, or buried; they shall become refuse on the ground."
Revelation 6:8 "I looked and behold a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him and power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with the sword, with hunger, with death and by the beasts of the earth."
Revelation 9:15 "So the four angels who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill one third of mankind."
Zechariah 13:8-9 "And it shall come to pass in all the land, says the Lord that two thirds in it shall be curt off and die., but one third shall be left in it. I will bring the one third through the fire, will refine them as silver is refined and test them as gold is tested.. They will call on My name and I will answer them. I will say 'This is My people'; and each one will say, 'The Lord is my God.'"
The above verses use one quarter, one third and two thirds. The two thirds of Zechariah applies to the land of Israel, where the campaign of Armageddon will take place. The others most certainly relate to the whole world.
Of course it's impossible to know the exact numbers, but what we can see is that the sort of numbers place these events as the worst in world history by a long shot (with the exception of the flood of Noah)
Many rightly say that the six million killed in the Holocaust was a huge number or the 230,000 killed in the 2004 Tsunami was a huge amount.
Today we have 7 billion people on earth. The verses above show that about two thirds will die in the tribulation. That would be about 4 billion people.
This equates to 2.5 million a day who will die. Just to put this in context, in the Holocaust less than a thousand a day died.
It's important to understand that these huge numbers will be killed by the "sword" which relates to war in general, and by the biggest famines the world has ever seen and by pestilence or perhaps demonically inspired beasts. This will be a time of incredible supernatural activity. This is the time culminating in the wrath of God, the wrath of Satan, the wrath of man and the wrath of nature.
Isaiah 12:6-9 " Wail for the Day of the Lord is at hand! It will come as destruction from the Almighty, therefore all hands will be limp, every man's heart will melt and they will be afraid. Pangs and sorrows will take hold of them...their faces will be like flames. Behold the day of the Lords comes, cruel with both wrath and fierce anger to lay the land desolate and He will destroy its sinners from it."
The above speaks of untold horror. (Please read the previous edition titled "The Lamb and the Lion of God.")
The entire prophecy of Ezekiel's dry bones (Ezekiel 37) coming to life is fulfilled in the tribulation period. We are seeing forerunners now, but the main thing is still ahead of us.
That incredible prophecy shows how the Jewish people at large come to spiritual life and salvation. That's the ultimate slap in the face for the devil.
When will the world end?
We don't for sure, but we do know that we are in the season. There are very few true Bible believing teachers who don't believe this. We have almost unanimous agreement that we are in the season.
In numerous previous editions I've pointed out that the tribulation will begin on a feast a trumpets. 2014 is the most likely, but we can't be 100% sure.
Looking at the very many pieces of the jig-saw puzzle all falling into place at great speed, it most certainly is the season!
The world's new beginning
The word dispensation, which is used nine times in the New Testament is the original word "Oiknomia" from which the word 'economy' is derived. It means that God worked in different ways at different times with man, just like different economies work in different ways.
The Millennium kingdom is the next dispensation. It is the time of our Lord's Kingly rule on this earth. This is the true new world. It will be here soon. The Second Coming of our Lord wraps up the seven-year tribulation period and brings in this magnificent new world.
Nature itself will be "released from the bondage of corruption" or the Adamic curse. It will be changed supernaturally in a flash and see a perfect creation in place for a thousand years.
The Bible gives so many wonderful descriptions of the coming new world scattered all around. Some of these go into detail and some just paint a brief picture. Either way, what is coming is beyond imagination. Those that miss out, because they are unsaved, will no doubt have a knowledge of this spectacular glory, but from the eternal regret of hell.
If you are unsaved and reading this now, I strongly encourage you, plead with you, not to gamble with your eternal destiny. You need to repent and be born of the Spirit of the living God now! Don't wait, don't delay, you don't know when you will step into eternity.
Very few people have any concept of the greatness of God. The world has dimmed their eyes and replaced God's glory, filling their heads with the cow dung of Hollywood, celebrity and other creations of devils and demons.
The coming glory is so great it is beyond imagination. It is so pure, clean and wonderful that it fills me with excitement just thinking about it. (If you want to be shocked please read edition 96 tilted "Holiness")
The new world in the Millennium will have only one religion. There will be no Methodists, Anglicans, Catholics and the like. By this time all false religions and counterfeits will have been cast into hell. There will be no unbelievers on the earth. Those who were saved in the tribulation will continue on in their bodies, but with longevity restored. Those who were saved before the tribulation will be in glorified supernatural bodies.
The religion of the Millennium will be centred around the worship of our Messiah with no divisions.
As we look at the current world events we see the stage being set with the actors waiting in the wings.
The world is going like a train, firmly on track towards it's meeting with doom.
Why hang on to what is doomed?
You know, oddly, people say its not love to speak about these things. The exact opposite is the truth. It is pure hatred not to warn someone that the bridge just down the track is missing...not so!
The good news is that our great King and Messiah has provided the answer and given to us real peace.
As mentioned I believe as do many others in a pre-tribulation rapture of the church. If you want to see more on this, please ready edition 89 titled "Pre, mid or post tribulation rapture."
Jeremiah 7:23 "This is what I commanded them saying, 'Obey My voice and I will be your God, and you shall be My people and walk in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well with you."
Heaven or hell:
Military man of the Israeli Defence Force do you know who you are praying to and will He hear you? There's good news and bad! The good news is that our Messiah will hear the cries of the Jewish people as they respond to Him. The bad news is that if you don't know that His name is Yeshua (Jesus) He will not hear you ever!
Young Palestinian kid, you are being used as a pawn. You are being brought up to hate the people that God will use to bring destruction on the Arab world. But the good news is that you can change sides easily. You need to be born again. Do you know that a large number of Arabs will be saved in the soon coming tribulation? Will you be one of them?
Here's a painting by Miriam Brysk titled "Children of the Holocaust."
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace!
