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.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
Signs of numerous times:
Biblical signs are designed to draw people in to the kingdom of God and to our grand Messiah. They are not designed to promote the pomp of pastors and teachers. Biblical signs will get the attention of some and others will never respond or believe.
Far too many teachers use signs which are not true signs to elevate themselves.
Signs do not take the place of the Holy Spirit who is the primary agent in these things.
True biblical signs can be very exciting indeed.
But don’t go overboard looking for signs everywhere. Your faith is much more important.
There are signs relating to almost every subject of the Bible:
There are numerous signs of the times we are in now. There are signs of The Lord’s coming, signs of the coming tribulation, signs of the veracity of the Bible itself, and of false prophets, teachers and deception. There are examples of erroneous signs, and signs of biblical truth. We see signs of the antichrist arising and many signs of anti-Semitism and replacement theology in the world and the church.
They are all there if you honestly look for them, led by the Spirit. Signs are really for those who want to see! If you genuinely encounter the Spirit of God, He will firstly cause you to repent. If you really see the true signs, you will repent.
Signs presented as from the Lord, which fail, are in themselves a sign - a sign of a false teacher. These failed signs instead of causing repentance cause mocking, scoffing doubt, discouragement, disbelief and falling away! (Deuteronomy 18:21-22, Jeremiah 23:30-32)
Great discernment is needed in these things, it’s no small issue!
Micah 3:6-7 (Amp) “It shall be night to you and you shall have no vision, yes it shall be dark without divination (comprehension) and the sun shall go down on the false prophets...and the seers shall be put to shame...for there is no answer from the Lord.”
Jeremiah 14:14 “The Lord said to me, ‘The prophets prophesy lies in my name. I have not sent them...”
Signs and Israel:
Isaiah 8:18 “...We are for signs and wonders in Israel, from the Lord.”
The greatest sign is Israel’s journey to salvation, and yet most can’t see it at all! They think it’s just the normal progression of history.
We are now, even within the next few weeks, at the point where signs for Israel are about to break and come into play. (1 Corinthians 1:22)
Of course regular readers know just how it will work out in the end:
Isaiah 66:19 “I will set a sign among them (Jews)...they shall declare My glory among the Gentiles.”
Funny things this: The world calls the Palestinian territories the “occupied territories.” But have a look at the verse below and see what God says!
Deuteronomy 1:8 “See I have set the land before you; go in and possess (Lit=occupy) the land which the Lord swore to your fathers – to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give to them and to their descendents after them.”
Other verses show that these areas to be occupied by Israel are in fact today’s so-called West Bank, Jordan Valley and surrounds.
So, Netanyahu promises to annex these very areas, and the world comes against it!
Beware of disinformation and collusion alliances! These are the methods of the media to entrap you.
Bible teachers today, more than ever, need to be full of great truth. The secret key is to teach the full gospel as led by the Spirit. (Hebrews 6:1-2) If you do it will contain within it a powerful method of checking. It will show Israel is: ●Elected ●Rebelled ●Rejected ●Regathered ●Repented ●Accepted.
Any doctrine that does not include all of the above bullet points, in that order is suspect!
Today many teachers stop short at “Rejected.” You can hear them and tell them a long way off. They make derogatory remarks about Israel and her fall and never have any good thing to say about what is coming for Israel. Their teaching will not bear witness in your heart. Obey that still small voice.
When the Jews come to spiritual life, it will be a great sign for the world and in fact for themselves also. It will be “Life from the dead!” (Romans 11:15)
When you are fully surrendered to our great King and Lord, everything in your life’s doing goes through the cross and is approved by our enthroned King. When not, life is a hit and miss affair founded on all that is shifting and shaking, surrendered to your own pride!
►Psalm 82:5 “They do not know, nor do they understand; they walk about in darkness. All the foundations of the earth are unstable (Lit=moving).”
Proverbs 4:19 "The way of the wicked is like darkness, they do not know what makes them stumble."
The great shaking is beginning. We see it as we look at the sudden deterioration of law and order, morality and political chaos in the world. World war is on the horizon. Will you be able to stand securely, if we are not snatched out of here before?
Will you be able to help others see and stand in these days?
Edition 197. March 5th 2014
The glory of the future universe:
The glory of the future universe:
The purpose of this edition is to increase your hope, faith and love for our great King and Saviour. It is to stretch your beliefs and expand your horizons into our spectacularly magnificent eternal future, bedecked with glory and wonder. Oh yes, and it’s also to scare the hell out of you – literally.
There is incredible design in God’s creative work from atoms to insects to the human form, to the earth, to the solar system, to the entire universe and to crown it all – heaven. And it is all about to get even more magnificent!
Of course most of this is beyond our imagination, but the Bible does give us insights and brief glimpses into the glory of these things – enough to put NASA and SETI (Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence) programs to shame.
Much of this edition flies in the face of modern thinking and even teaching in the church. It is way ahead of NASA, SETI and others. It also puts all science fiction to shame, and attempts by Hollywood to look into the future. In fact Hollywood’s eternal destruction is revealed right here – with all your favourite celebrities.
Some of these things you may never have heard of, or even imagined, but it’s all right here in God’s word. Hallelujah!
Other worlds with life upon them:
Are there other worlds out there in the universe? There are untold numbers of other worlds.
Is there life out in the universe and does it matter?
Let’s see what God’s word has to say.
Hebrews 1:1-2 “God who at various times (dispensations) and in different ways spoke in times past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds.”
Hebrews 11:3 “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.”
Isaiah 45:12 “I have made the earth and created man on it. It was I – My hands - that stretched out the heavens, and all their host I have commanded.” The word “host” means: (Strongs, H6633) “army” “service”, “intelligent beings.” cf. Ps.115:16.
Colossians 1:16 “By Him all things were created that are in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.”
The verses above all imply other worlds out there, and also worlds with some form of life upon them.
God contains time and space, so when we consider this question, we need to realise that life includes unimaginable things. It includes an entire dimension which transcends both space and time.
Are we the privileged planet? We most certainly do have perfect conditions on earth to sustain life. But what if there are other planets that have life forms that are radically different from ours? What if there are other planets that have spirit-type beings living there, in which physics doesn’t matter?
The issue is that we don’t know the full extent of what’s out there. We have not even been able to explore our own solar system with much more than a super- charged magnifying glass!
Our modern astronomers have come up with “educated guesstimates” of how big the universe is. They are educated fools for even trying! No matter what the size is they conjure up, what’s on the other side, what’s beyond that?
Job 26:7 “He hangs the earth on nothing.”
Are we alone in the universe? God’s nature and purpose behind all creation is ultimately to have communion, fellowship, relationship and community. God’s eternal, universal creation is in line with His character. The universe and all in it were created for loving relationships. Because God placed man on this earth, Yeshua died here once for all; otherwise He would be careering all over the universe from world to world, and re-enacting the Cross…..
It is so inconceivable that we are alone in the universe. There is a universe beyond our comprehension, of spectacular, magnificent wonder out there. It is full of life! It has no end and will never end!
We are now at the delightful dawn of our entry into this universe filled with God’s love – a place of placid tranquil peace.
Transformation of the body:
Philippians 3:21 “He will transform our lowly body that it may be confirmed to His glorious body.”
1 Corinthians 15:40-49 “There are also celestial bodies and terrestrial bodies, but the glory of the celestial is one and glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun and another glory of the moon and another glory of the stars, for one star differs from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown in corruption and raised in incorruption...it is sown a natural body and raised a spiritual body...We shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.”
At our resurrection, we disciples of Yeshua, will be instantly changed. We will go from limited understanding to unlimited, having full knowledge. We will have full mental capacity. We will be changed from corruptible to incorruptible in a flash.
Our new supernatural bodies will have both physical and spiritual dimensions. We will be able to transcend both dimensions at will, being able to manifest and appear somewhere, and in a flash somewhere else. We will be able to eat, touch and smell. We will be able to travel through the universe at the speed of thought.
We will have full brain power. In our current state we only use a very small percentage of our brain power. But this will all change in a flash. We will have the very wisdom of God. We will know all things!
Our future eternal bodies will be set at about 30 years old. Medical science has recently discovered that DNA stops ageing at about 30. This is also more or less the time our Lord was crucified and rose again. The priesthood of all believers – priests were appointed at age 30.
All impurities, sickness and deformity will be instantly removed. Our eternal future state will be perfect.
We will differ from each other based on our works done while alive on earth and in response to God’s call and leading.
We will reign with Him:
2 Timothy2:12 “If we endure, we shall reign with Him.”
Revelation 20:4 “...Those who have been beheaded for their witness to Yeshua and for the word of God...they lived and reigned with Messiah for a thousand years.”
Revelation 22:5 “And there shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever.”
Daniel 7:18 “The saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever.”
Revelation 3:21 “To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.”
Daniel 7:27 “Then the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall obey and serve Him.”
These verses above (and there are many more) are wonderful and earth shattering! They speak of our co-reign with our Lord on this earth in the Millennium. They also speak of our co-reign with our Lord in the entire universes for all eternity! Did you catch the power of that last sentence?
If we are to reign in the universe, of course there is life out there. Will our reigning in the universe be limited or unlimited? I don’t know, I’ll tell you in a thousand years time.
The amazing eternal creation:
Isaiah 9:7 “Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end.”
Psalm 19:1 “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork.”
Psalm 148:2-6 “Praise Him in the highest! Praise Him all His angels; Praise Him all His host! Praise Him sun and moon; Praise Him all you stars of light! Praise Him you heavens of heavens, and you waters above the heavens! Let them praise the name of the Lord, for He has commanded and they were created. He has also established them forever and ever. He has made a decree which shall not pass away.”
Psalm 8:3-6 “When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the starts, which You ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the Son of man that you visit him, for you have made him a little lower than the angels, and you have crowned him with glory and honour. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet.”
The great eternal regret:
In contrast to this magnificent glorious future, beyond our imagination there is a horror beyond our imagination as well.
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 38:15 “From the wicked their light is withheld...”
This place is called hell and will be the eternal dwelling place of Satan, his demons, fallen angels, popes, presidents, prime ministers, kings, queens, company CEO’s, celebrities, heroes, Hollywood directors, actors, media owners, journalists ,and other important people. The pro-abortionists and all those yelling for gay rights will be there. It will also be the eternal dwelling place of toilet janitors, cleaners, servants, blue-collar workers, union members, drunkards, murderers, thieves, prison inmates and all the scum of the earth.
The point is, that all of those outside of the saving grace of the cross and shed blood of our Messiah will end in hell. You can also reverse these roles mentioned above, because there are individuals saved in all categories of life. No one will ever be saved based on how good they were!
All humans live forever. All will see God. All unbelievers will have a glimpse of this universal glory. All unbelievers will be raised into a new incorruptible body as well. They will see God and perhaps a section of heaven at the Great White Throne Judgment. They will retain and perhaps be given full knowledge like us. BUT it will be too late for the unbeliever.
Their horror is that they will be imprisoned in the dungeon of hell for eternity, unable to escape the dark clutches of Satan, his demons and fallen angels. They will be in a supernatural prison of untold horror. This place is a creation of the living God, to forever keep all that is unholy, unclean and evil out of the universe.
You may want to keep that in mind when you try to justify what God calls sin!
Only those cleansed by the blood of our Lord have access to the future eternal universe of great glory.
Don’t be fooled by the stupid reverend at a funeral service saying, “He was a good man, and now O Gawd, we commend him into your presence.”
The wise person outside of the saving grace of God and the fool will be forever imprisoned.
1 Corinthians 1:19 “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
Psalm 14:1 “The fool has said in his heart there is no God.”
Who will inhabit this future wonder world?
Revelation 21:1-4 “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I John saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be with them and be their God.”
It will only be those born of true love, the saving love of our Lord through the shed blood and the cross of Calvary. True love includes the eradication of sin, evil and the wicked. True Godly love is the place of supreme holiness and perfection. In this new world of glory there is no sin, no evil, no fear, no stress, no sickness and no imperfection of any sort, nor any death.
Those who are saved now will rule and reign on this earth with our Lord from a base called the New Jerusalem, which will descend from heaven and float in the air above Israel for a thousand years. Those who are saved in the tribulation period will be the inhabitants of the earth, but still in natural bodies.
What you must do:
●Give yourself fully to our Lord in humility and He will give you beauty for ashes.
●Realise that your future is far more wonderful and glorious that you can imagine.
●Know that our Lord has the most magnificent plan for you for all eternity.
●Understand that you are a living treasure of great price.
●If you are suffering now, realise that you will very soon be released into a wonder-world of perfection.
Isaiah 57:15 “Thus says the High and Lofty One who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place, with him who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble.”
2 Corinthians 7:1 “Since we have these promises, beloved let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”
Hebrews 12:1 “We also are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses; let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.”
●The only way you can help the world is by staying above it.
●Walk circumspectly, and don’t sell yourself to the world. Don’t be reasoned into wrong by the council of the ungodly. Be radical on the right side. Be a testimony. Stand as a testimony in this evil hour.
Romans 8:19,21 “For the earnest expectation of the creation waits for the revealing of the sons of God...because the creation itself will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.”
Here is my song and prayer.
Great and marvellous are Your works; just and true are Your ways King of the saints; we glorify Your name and fear and tremble at your presence. You are set-apart, pure righteousness and holiness. Your judgements are manifest and magnificent. You are gloriously triumphant. My strength and courage is in You my great God.
You Lord are the warrior of all warriors and will soon destroy all warriors set against Your ways and works. Your right hand is all powerful, shattering the enemy. In your great majesty You overthrew Your adversaries and loosed Your wrath. At the breath of Your anger and fall of Your sword, Your enemies are consumed.
The wind of Your word is a terror, consuming and melting away evil spirits and storm- riders. You are the worker of terrors and wonders. The nations will soon quake in anguish at your voice. Dreadful regret will sink them in shame.
The people You have made Your own and Your inheritance, are now filled with your sustenance and glory in the presence of Your sanctuary of love. You have established us forever. We shall reign with You forever.
Numbers 14:21 “As I live all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord.”
Ephesians 3:8-9 “That I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Messiah, and to make all people see what is the dispensation of the fullness of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages, has been hidden in God who created all things through Yeshua Messiah.” (Dispensation hid in God= hidden from the ages / eons of time).
Ezekiel 10:9-11 “I looked and there were four wheels by the cherubim , and one wheel by one cherub and another wheel by each other cherub; the wheels appeared to have the colour of a Beryl stone. As for their appearance they all four looked the same, as it were a wheel within a wheel. When they went they went towards any one of their four directions; they did not turn aside when they went, but followed in the direction the head was facing.”
I took this picture of the massive Augrabies falls in full flood. The waterfall is right in the middle of desert terrain. It speaks of refreshment and abundance.
Isaiah 41:18 “I will open rivers in desolate heights, and fountains in the midst of the valleys; I will make the wilderness a pool of water and the dry land springs of water.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
