- Iran / US / Israel tensions rise as Iran says it will strike Israel if attacked by the US as more military hardware pours into the region. Today (15 May) Iran offically begins unlimited production of enriched uranium.
- Anti-Semitic rhetoric continues to rise in US Democratic Party, without any of them calling for a cessation or change, meaning their silence is agreement.
- Today (14th May) is the actual anniversary of Israel’s independence.
People seek affirmation and acceptance. They seek approval and assurance, looking for validation and value. But they seek it in the world and in their own selves (flesh or sin nature) and there they encounter the father of lies, telling them that they’re okay. It is the world and self that must die on the cross! So why go to those sentenced to death for their sin, for approval? (Galatians 2:20, 6:14)
People must decide on the inherent goodness of man or the inherent wickedness of the heart of man. If the latter, a saviour is needed. (Jeremiah 17:9)
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!
A most dramatic prophecy:
I really do expect many big prophetic things to break onto the world stage within days, weeks and perhaps a few months. Now is the time to be ready and stay spiritually tuned in!
Tread carefully when the warning trumpets are warming up and the warning bells are ringing. Today, I want to put before you a dramatic prophetic warning about to break onto the world scene. With so many ducks in row – wake-up time!
Today there is an explosion of interest in end-time things and the spirit of error is there to provide the deceived with more deception, and Spirit of truth is there to lead the genuinely humble into all truth.
If all these events which are happening were not recorded in the Bible, and someone recorded them now, they would look exactly like Bible prophecy! But the unsaved world simply does not have spiritual eyes and ears to see any of it, or know it. They are wandering blindly in confusion.
Have a careful look now at the following few verses, they are dramatic to say the least!
Isaiah 44:28, 45:1-3 “(The Lord) says to Cyrus, he is My shepherd, and shall perform all My pleasure, even saying to Jerusalem, you shall be built, and to the temple, ‘your foundation shall be laid.’ Thus says the Lord to His anointed, to Cyrus whose right hand I have held – to subdue nations before him and loose the armour of kings, to open before him the double doors, so that the gates will not shut...I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places...”
These few verses above, speak prophetically of: ●The status of Jerusalem. ●The beginning of the building of the third temple. ●Subduing nations, weakening or causing their submission. ●Conflict with surrounding nations, ●Keys to double-door access to Jerusalem. And ●Oil!
But there is more: “Double doors” represent strongly secured doors or access. The context here is Jerusalem. Revelation 3:7 speaks of the faithful church being given the “key of David” which opens and no one shuts.”
This “key of David” is a reference to Isaiah 22:20-22 where Eliakim becomes a political leader, with God’s favour on him. He is given the “key of David” to open to the “inhabitants of Jerusalem.”
The name “Eliakim” means “God will raise him up.”
Cyrus was a godless leader, but God used him for His purposes. Here we see both Cyrus and Eliakim being examples in type of President Trump.
Remember last time I said that the decree of Cyrus to rebuild the temple happened as the seventy-year Babylonian captivity ended. In terms of our analogy in type, that is now!
Deuteronomy 33:24 “Asher is most blessed of sons; let him be favoured by his brothers, and let him dip his foot in oil.”
The land of the Hebrew tribe of Asher is foot-shaped, right in the north of Israel bordering the coastline, which is exactly where the huge, recently discovered “Leviathan” oil and gas fields are, which are already in operation. (“Asher” means: Blessed.)
There was also a recent large oil discovery in the Negev Desert. Israel is already supplying oil and gas to Europe and other neighbours. Iran and Russia do not like this one little bit.
Some 30% (18.5 million b/d) of the world’s oil passes through The Straits of Hormuz, a chokepoint in the Persian Gulf, controlled by Iran, on its way to the west.
This single spot has the potential to cripple the world’s economy if its life-blood, oil, is stopped. Iran knows this and has threatened to close the Straits before. But now so many other things are all lining up and cornering Iran like a rabid dog.
Bear in mind that Iran has just repeated its threat to attack Israel if the US attacks it. That’s like going to your next door neighbour on the right and punching him out because your neighbour on the left got on your nerves!
Actually, it’s all about dancing, deceiving, demons and devils in Iran’s head.
It is the modern Cyrus who will get all these things going. And yes, there is enough biblical evidence to identify President Trump as that man.
Israeli leader Netanyahu has compared King Cyrus to President Trump. Numerous Bible prophecy buffs have done the same. This is all analogy, type and shadow in operation, which I agree with here.
There is a rule in applying type to a biblical situation. Never take the analogy too far. It may be only certain aspects of the biblical source that apply in type.
Most importantly it is must have the leading and revealing of the Spirit of God behind it.
Bear in mind that those outside of the leading of the Spirit, or who have their own agendas, generally see nothing in the types and often resist them.
So, let’s see what we have:
We have President Trump’s backing, and securing of Jerusalem as belonging to Israel. This applies to Golan too. We will soon have the laying of the foundation of the temple. That is still to come. We have the subduing of nations through agreement like with Saudi Arabia and war coming with others like Iran. And we have the oil issue. We have the key to Jerusalem’s double doors being kept open.
This current prophetic scenario includes: ●Iran resumption of its nuclear weapons program, which is underway again. ●Iran’s repeated hatred for Israel, and threats against her. ●Iran’s crashing economy and currency, ●Iran’s attack on four ships (so far) in the Persian Gulf and its threat to use the closure of the Straits of Hormuz as a weapon against the world economy. ●A new 10-nation military confederacy in Europe has just been put together by Macron of France. ●Syria continues to sizzle ahead of its total destruction.
The law of war is not enshrined in the courts of the UN, the World Court, the EU, the UK, the US or Israel or any other nation. It is enshrined in the word of God. “The Lord of hosts” is used hundreds of times in the Bible. “Hosts” is the word for armies – the armies of our Lord.
The purpose for prophesied war and all these end-time upheavals is to bring in true world peace, righteousness and glory!!
Beware - many of these things will be coming with sudden shock.

The world, it's end and new beginning
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!
