Psalm 78:31-34 “The wrath of God came against them...in spite of this they still sinned, and did not believe in His wondrous works, therefore their day He consumed in futility and their years in fear. When He slew them, then they sought Him; and they turned and sought diligently for God.”

Shabbat Shalom to all!
Generally speaking firstly:
I have shortened the main editions from an average of 3500 words to about 2500 words. This makes for easier reading without skipping sections, which people do, if it’s long. The Sabbath Report remains at about 1000 words on average. I have also increased the font size slightly.
Don’t miss Edition 510, the new one, entitled “Falling away from what?” I have some exciting material on prophecy and the rapture for you amongst some other things.
Dealing with Bible prophecy is very exciting and extremely important, but we also need to know how to sit down, shut up, and wait as well. (Believe me, I don’t like waiting either.)
The problem is if we don’t wait when required, we can get bent out of shape with all sorts of strange, untrue revelations and presumptions which are way off. It’s easy to get ahead of things and into trouble.
Right now we are in the waiting room on the railway siding. What’s that puffing sound I hear getting closer?
Okay, let’s get into today’s message:
How to go to hell - It’s very easy!
■Firstly, you must believe that there is no hell, and that even if there is, a loving God would not send anyone there. That’s your first giant step to hell.
■Stay ignorant of the truth and deny that God-created little voice in your heart saying that He and His word is truth. – “Suppress the truth in your unrighteousness.” (Romans 1:18)
■Use your human reasoning to get rid of your conscience.
■Exalt and enthrone yourself and your opinions as a god.
■Deny and cast down the essential, truth of the cross of Calvary and the resurrection.
■Deny the fact that God calls sin – sin! Be a law unto yourself, with your own worldly-wise ways. Grey out biblical light and merge it with darkness.
■Believe that you are very important, and in no need of repentance and correction. Just stay as you are – you can be wonderfully successful and happy on your own – you can do it.
■Believe that God, (if there is a God) will save you because you are more good than bad.
■Deny the existence of Satan and his power. Deny the existence and influence of demons.
■Deny the truth that salvation is exclusive and only for those who are truly born-again of the Spirit of God. While you’re about it, you might as well deny Yeshua, God, and the Holy Spirit.
■Obey the voices and actions of the masses. Be informed by them. Follow their traditions customs, ways, entertainment, fun and doings. Be one of the crowd and don’t rock the boat.
■Believe the mass-media and surrender to their authority.
■Believe that all religions are equal with their own legitimate way to the same God.
■Give yourself to ministers who themselves are not born again and Spirit filled.
■Believe that you’re a Christian because you went to church on Easter and Christmas.
■Learn how to lie to yourself, trust in yourself, and believe the lie that you don’t need a Saviour.
■Live for the here and now, and focus all your attention on money and materialism. Live for “me now”.
■Love the world and it’s wisdom and serve it unquestioningly.
■Believe in and exalt all gods, read your horoscopes, uplift your fortune teller, clairvoyant and witchdoctors.
■Flaunt your sexual adventures, practises, and beliefs. Give yourself over to lust.
■Deny God’s definition of family and in fact God’s definition of everything!
■Learn how to hate Jews and real Christians.
■Thrive on pride and live a carefree life. Live in external peace getting rid of anything that convicts your conscience.
Here are some of the matching verses: James 4:4, Romans 12:2, Mark 8:36, John 16:33, 1 John 2:16 and many more.
How to get to heaven:
●Only the love of God demonstrated upon the cross can save you. ●Take up your own cross daily once His cross has saved you. ●Recognise that you are incapable of saving yourself, a sinner in need of repentance. ●Call on our Lord in all sincerity, to save you. ●Be baptised in water and in the Spirit. ●Reject all your rubbish that has kept you away from God. ●Make it your determined effort to follow our Lord, believe and do His word. ●Fully surrender to the truth of the Bible. It is true even if no one in the world believes it! ●Set your heart to love and get to know our Lord more and more. ●Get into fellowship with like minded believers. ●Ignore the rejection of friends of the world. ●Take up and use your spiritual gifts and weapons. ●Write down your vision, progress and spiritual goals and desires. ●Do something memorable, dramatic and demonstrative at your major spiritual milestones. ●Be different.
Love the Lord with all your heart mind soul and strength.
Pray for our Lord to cleanse and re-sensitise your conscience. Then Your renovated conscience, in tune with the Holy Spirit will lead you and approve you before God.
The most incredible thing is that when you get saved, God does not count or remember any of your sins. The slate is clean so that you can move forward unhindered and in confidence. But for those who remain unsaved, they are dead in their sins, weighed down and fully condemned forever. (2 Corinthians 5:19, John 3:16-19)
The greatest tragedy of all is that most people carry on living for self. without even questioning which road they're on!
New and old believers, welcome to glory and eternity.
Edition 105. January 10th 2012
Love or truth or both!
News events and comment.
●Syrian dictator, Assad may be the next tyrant to topple. All of the Arab Spring dictators were overthrown or killed by their own people. Assad will be next if he doesn't first of all attack Israel, which he has promised to do. This would initiate the war of Isaiah 17 in which Damascus "lies a ruined heap." The other possibility is that Assad is overthrown and Syria becomes another pawn in the Arab Spring game. The Damascus war would then follow. Either way it's coming!
●Russian and French warships have now moved into positions off Syria while US drones fly over the Iranian coast.
●The US has just deployed a large number of troops into Israel for joint operations relating to oil-wars or any other conflict- escalation. A US aircraft carrier will be joining the deployment offering air and missile support in conjunction with Israel.
●We're on the brink of major prophetic developments in the Middle East!
Love or truth or both!
1 John 3:18 "...Let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and truth."
Why is this issue so important?
One of the major characteristics of the time period near the Lord's return is a huge, monumental, satanically driven attack on truth.
If you're standing on a railway line and your eyes are misty and there's a lot of noise around, how can you see or hear the train coming? Seeing and hearing and knowing the truth is so vital in the face of the coming onslaught.
If Satan can cast down, confuse or obscure the truth in your life, he has a major highway right into your heart.
If you go into the zone where nuclear radiation is all over the place, you need protective clothing. Who removed the sign saying "Protective clothing needed?" A great part of the church did. They say: "Don't worry about doctrine or truth, just love everybody right now." "All is clear in the world", they say. They're leading you to disaster in the name of love!
Today's church leaders fit into one of these categories: Stupid leaders, clever leaders or dangerous leaders.
Stupid leaders don't question things. They just accept and regurgitate what they've been taught. Like their flock, they have the pandemic called spiritual laziness. Cleaver leaders question things especially traditions. They measure everything against the word of God with the Spirit's leading. Dangerous leaders have questioned things, they know the truth, but they ignore it and go with the dictates of their people and the world's traditions.
Today many have become their own false gods. Their eyes are blinded to truth. They're wrapped up in their own deceived ideas, measuring themselves among themselves.
Today most Christians have been completely woven into the very fabric of the world and it's god Satan. They're blind to their own state.
There is only one narrow, valid way to glory and that is the way of the cross of Christ. The world and a fast growing number of churches today believe that God word is not valid and the wide road of tolerance is right. They contradict God and His word.
Proverbs 21:30 "There is no wisdom or understanding or counsel against the Lord."
Please understand that I have no interest in proving myself right and others wrong. I have no interest in towing your church line either. I'm consumed with a passion for truth and to see you well-prepared to meet our Lord of glory without regret and loss of eternal reward.
The big tree:
Love is one of the fruits of the Spirit. Fruits grow on trees, so what is the tree? The tree is obviously the Spirit. Or we could rightly say; Spirit led truth. You can't exalt a fruit above the tree itself.
If you ignore or lessen the importance of the truth-tree and exalt the fruit of love above it, here's what happens: You can then join all things together in unity.
You see, truth divides and separates, between right and wrong. Truth says 2+2=4 not 5. Take away truth in the name of love and 2+2 = anything you want.
Truth is the great divider, so if you want overall religious unity, you must get rid of truth.
You absolutely can't have love and truth if you support the Multi-Faith movement today. You can only have love, with truth cast aside.
Love without truth is humanism and is ultimately the road to hell.
If you're going to have unity based on your love, you have to equally love Buddha, Mohamed, Jesus and all others. If you have unity based on truth, you can still love the people of other religions, but you're only united with those who love Yeshua /Jesus exclusively.
2 Thessalonians 2:9-11 "The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs and lying wonders and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth that they might be saved. And for this reason God sent them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie."
2 Timothy 3:13 "Evil men and imposters will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived."
2 Timothy 4:3-4 "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers...and they will turn from the truth."
Love says: "God would not send anyone to hell, all religions are valid".
Truth says: "Unless you are born again you will not see the Kingdom of God".
Love and truth says: "You must be born again. Your growing love for our Messiah will then transform you into vessel of His love".
Love says: "God is love and therefore can't be full of wrath".
Truth says: "God is love therefore His wrath is revealed against all sin, hatred and un-holiness."
Romans 2:2 "We know that the judgement of God is according to truth..."
Romans 1:18-25 "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness."
We're entering a time of immense spiritual conflict. Most people will not see it, because it is primarily being fought in the spiritual realm. It's consequences are and will become more and more evident as we go into this monumental time.
The battle is for the minds and hearts of people, but especially true believers.
2 Peter 3:3-4 "Knowing this first; that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts and saying where is the promise of His coming...all things will continue as they have."
Isaiah 59:14 "...For truth is fallen in the street and cannot enter."
2 Timothy 3:1-7 "In the last days perilous times will come...for men will be lovers of themselves...always learning and never coming to a knowledge of the truth."
We're headed for catastrophic times. Regular readers will know that I've pointed out a few times approximately how many will die in the soon coming tribulation. Here's an even bigger shock, which you do well to take heed of: I know of a number of accounts of people who've had near death experiences or actually died and been brought back. Some of them speak of having encountered many spectacular and wonderful things. Some have remarked on the fact that only about 2% of the professing church made it! This is extra-biblical, so we don't put undue weight on it, but if it's only vaguely true...Yikes!!!!
In Matthew we have the well-known parable of the sower. Three out of four who heard the truth, turned it down! That's 75%. Of course this is a parable, but the point is that the larger majority are destined for hell.
The tragedy of our day is that billions of people are completely blind to their own state, but what is an even greater tragedy is that the church itself has largely cast aside truth in the name of love. It is being led by the nose-ring to the slaughter.
Galatians 5:7 "You ran well, who hindered you from obeying the truth."
Proverbs 1:25-26 "Because you disdained all My counsel (truth), and would have none of My reproof, I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your terror comes."
Today a great part of the church is in total darkness about what is coming, when, why and how. They're in ignorance of the state of their own hearts and completely in the dark about the spiritual war for their own eternal state. Why is this? It's the leaders that are to blame.
Hosea 4:9 "And it shall be like people like priest, so I will punish them for their ways, and reward them for their deeds."
The verse above is the terrible truth. The verse below is the exact opposite and the way of the diligent, with a heart after our Lord.
Jeremiah 4:19 "O my soul, my soul! I am pained in my very heart! My heart makes a noise to me; I cannot hold my peace, because you have heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war."
This verse is amazing. It was written thousands of years ago by Jeremiah. If ever there is a verse of scripture that grabs me personally...this is it! By the way, this verse is my heart's desire for you as well.
Of course love without truth would throw that verse out and say: "Just pray for money and be happy now."
I was chatting to a friend who I hadn't seen for some time a while ago. He's been a believer for many years. He goes to a normal ordinary spineless church. I was amazed that he didn't even know what the Arab Spring is.
The way ahead
The glorious church is the one that's moving ever forward with our Messiah in all truth and love
We need to "take heed that we're not deceived" That means we need to be vigilant. Actually the original word for "take heed" is an agricultural term. It means we need to pull out the weeds, water and nurture the plant well.
John 18:37 "...Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice."
3 John 3-4 "For I rejoiced greatly when brethren came and testified of the truth that is in you, just as you walk in the truth. I have no greater joy to hear that my children walk in the truth."
Here is the way of the word. This is the way to safety:
2 Peter 1:12 "Therefore I will not be negligent to remind you always of these things though you know them and are established in the present truth."
2 Timothy 2:15 "Be diligent to present yourselves approved unto God, a workman who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
The above verses are a true delight. They speak of continuing in the word of truth and not giving up. They speak of the very opposite of today's pandemic - spiritual laziness.
Don't take these things lightly, we're in a world of spiritual conflict and we need to be prepared to stand against the onslaught and move forward with our Lord.
The biggest error and deception that's coming, is peace created by loving people. They'll try to bring peace to the world. In fact the world's "Roadmap to peace" for Israel is a perfect example. To bring peace, they say divide up the land of Israel. God's truth says that's the way to war! (Joel 3:2)
The fast growing apostasy of the church is directly related to false doctrine and the perversion of truth.
Truth will "out" in the end...always and absolutely. Don't you think it's kind of wise to line up with it now?
Truth without Spirit-led love creates the bondage of legalism.
Love without truth makes you a humanist with a low view of God and a high elevated view of yourself.
At the end of the day it must be Spirit-led love together with Spirit-led truth that will keep you safe and moving forward with our great Messiah, King, Lord and God.
Isaiah 13:6 "Wail for the day of the Lord is at hand! It will come as destruction from the Almighty."
Here's a painting by Giovanni Francesco Barbieri depicting the apostle Matthew.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace!
