Shabbat Shalom to all!
When the pressure is on:
What do you really do in thought and action when the pressure is really on and all things begin to shake?
It’s like the good -old toothpaste tube law: When you squeeze it, what’s inside comes out. This is when you see what’s really in your heart! “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” (Matthew 12:34)
Out of the heart under strain do you hear the mouth speak, shout, screech, swear, stress out, or be silent? Is your thinking stained, strained and stretched by stress?
Pressure sharpens your focus! It can cause you to curse or cause incredible blessing, if you change your focus to the things of God. Yes, a virus can change your focus to victory.
Tests create endurance, or in some cases cause people to give up.
Today we have a multitude of spiritually superficial, shallow shepherds, blind as a bat and deaf as a doornail to the voice of God, and with the mouth of many parrots leading their blind flock.
A lot of what you believe is related to the spiritual input from your spiritual fathers are and who you hang around with and identify with. In this day, you need to make sure who your spiritual friends are! You need to forsake many, and gather new ones.
I would feel a lot safer learning from a hell-fire and brimstone preacher of the cross than the modern, be blessed, be prosperous, be happy, positive-only preachers.
To construct this modern positive-only gospel, you have to remove all the “hard sayings and severity of the gospel. Their gospel becomes a half-baked ear-tickling tickle.
Endurance produces character. This is why a lot of the modern church is so spineless.
Some churches, you dare not walk into. They need a big sign outside saying “Enter at your own risk” or better still, “Danger, do not enter”
James 1:3 “Know that the testing of your faith produces patience (Lit=endurance) “
When the pressure is on beware of the pressure to err! Many times pressure causes you to run away and take the easy, wide road with the multitudes. That’s when you fall into error and then fear. When you have decided to take the easy erroneous road, don’t think God will help you along.
Isaiah 30:28 “His breath is like an overflowing stream, which reaches up to the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of futility; and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err.”
If your heart is not right with God, why should He lead you into all truth? The verse above applies to the world, but the principle is universal.
We are seeing a massive rise in deceptive teachings particularly relating to Israel, to the pre-tribulation rapture and the tribulation period.
As God prepares to move in new ways with Israel, there will be alarming and dramatic signs. The thrilling sounds of the shofar are shattering the midnight sounds of silence over Jerusalem even right now. (Literally!) The alarm of awakening is sounding; the ancient walls of Jerusalem are vibrating and reverberating with the breath of the Lion of the tribe of Judah – arising ready to roar onto the stage!
This is the time to reach out to the Jews with the good news of salvation in their Jewish Messiah – our Messiah. This is the time to throw out and destroy the obstacles to them coming in to the kingdom, created by the church.
If God has finished with the Jews, as many teach, how do you explain the great regathering to the land? Do you think that is just God having fun, or that it’s just meaningless coincidence?
In this day you are in trouble if you do not know how to discern the voice of truth.
You cannot obey the voice of the Lord if you can’t hear the voice of the Lord. The voice of the letter of the word is not the voice of the Lord. It is dead letter and produces death, legalism and bondage. (2 Corinthians 3:6, Galatians 5:9)
These are very dangerous days, not so much because of any virus, but because required repentance is being ignored and the source of “truth” for the people is the devil’s deceivers – the media.
A good starting presumption is not to trust the mass-media. Regard it with automatic suspicion. Obviously I’m not talking about a hard news event, but all their “exalted” opinion pieces.
Isaiah 2:12 “The day of the Lord of hosts shall come upon everything proud and lofty, upon everything lifted up.”
What follows is some of the sermon or book titles of my own spiritual fathers. I cut my spiritual teeth on this lot, starting in the late 70s. Some of these great men of God would be scorned and rejected today. But their work stands with transforming power, for the few that find them.
These wonderful discipleship teachers of old, pulled the rug out from under you, condemned the hell out of you, and often times left you floored, in surrender to our Lord, in a manner that caused you to be so very thankful! I would trust my life with them!
My aim is to show that just in the titles alone, you can see that they are of another glorious world: (My library contains thousands more.)
Derek Prince: ●Fierce times are coming. ●I will shake all things – the nations, the church and Israel. ●Facing the last days without fear. ●Living in a world falling apart. ●Evil forces of the end times. ●The Spirit of Antichrist ●Disasters that are about to come upon the earth. ●Facing God’s judgment.
Watchman Nee: ●Not I but Christ. ●The messenger of the cross. ● A living sacrifice. ●The spirit of judgement. ●Salvation of the soul. ●Love not the world.
Charles Finney: ●How to be free from the world. ●Victory over the world.
AW Tozer: ●That incredible Christian. ●The divine conquest. Gems from Tozer.
Looking at the titles should give you an idea of the content. How many of these titles do you hear preached today? By the way I have ‘devoured’ these books, tapes and teachings and thousand more about eight times each. I have about 300,000 pages of hand written notes from them.
Be blessed as you prepare your heart mind and soul for the glorious appearing of our Lord – soon and very soon!
Edition 219. August 6th 2014
All about judgment:
All about judgment:
Malachi 3:18 “Then you shall again discern between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not.”
The issues of today are defining of the prophetic time we are in.
Today most of the church is an ineffective dead duck. Its pastors and leaders are excellent propagators of Satan’s “dance in the dark with the world.” They have produced a flock of puppets of the world.
As we charge forward into the early stages of end-time prophetic fulfilment there are many things we must know very well and be sure of. There are many things we need to judge. Some of these things we must judge for our own benefit and others that we must judge to take a larger stand on certain issues.
Amongst your greatest enemies are those who say “Do not judge.”
One of the biggest lies in town is “Do not judge.” Many ignorant people, saved and unsaved have seen or heard about some verse somewhere that says something like that. The spirit of pride in them jumps on the bandwagon and now you have a bunch of blind puppets participating in this dangerous deception.
Matthew 7:1 “Judge not that you be not judged.”
This verse above is the one! But what does it really mean? In the original, the verse has a “continuous tense” aspect to it. Quite simply it means that we should not get into a continuous judgment of people in which we put them down and elevate ourselves. It is all about being self-righteous, proud and arrogant on a continuous basis.
It does not mean don’t judge between right and wrong, truth and error or even certain people.
Here is “judgment” from our Lord’s point of view:
John 5:30 “I can of My own self do nothing. As I hear I judge; and My judgment is righteous because I do not seek My own will, but the will of the Father who sent me.”
John 7:24 “Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.”
1 Corinthians 2:15 “The spiritual man judges all things, but he himself is judged by no one.”
So, we see now that there’s much more to the subject.
Who must judge?
1 Corinthians 2:15 “The spiritual man judges all things, but he himself is judged by no one.
You don’t want a little kid running around with a loaded firearm. The verse above says it is the “spiritual man” who is to judge. Obviously this relates to the bigger issues of life and where other people are involved.
As far as we ourselves are concerned personally, we must all judge ourselves against the word of God.
2 Corinthians 13:5 “Examine (judge) yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Prove yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Yeshua the Messiah is in you, unless indeed you are disqualified?”
1 Corinthians 11:31“For if we would judge ourselves we would be not judged.”
There are over 700 Bible verses dealing with our needs to judge!
So, all of us need to judge ourselves regularly against the word of God in faith and it is only the spiritually mature who are to judge “all things.”
What we must judge:
Quite simply we must judge all the things that the Bible commands us to judge. Most believers today are ignorant of their Bible except of course for “Do not judge!”
The most important and biggest thing is doctrine. Contrary to popular belief, the Bible has plenty to say on this and it is extremely strong! It must be the cause of separation. Did you know that? Here are some shocking verses for you:
2 Timothy 3:5 “Having a form of godliness, but denying its power, from such turn away.”
1 John 4:1 “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”
Romans 16:17 “Now I urge you brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.”
1 Corinthians 1:10 “Now I plead with brethren by the name of our Lord, Yeshua, that you all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and judgment.”
We must judge current affairs. We must judge the moral issues of our day. We must speak God’s word into these things and be separate from the evils of the world. We must judge into the most important issue of our day, which is Israel, Jerusalem, the Jews and God’s word on the issues.
The terrible danger of not judging:
Matthew 12:30 “He that is not with Me is against Me.”
Isaiah 59:8 (A Psalm of separation from God). “The way of peace they have not known, and there is no justice in their ways; they have made themselves crooked paths; whoever takes that path shall not know peace.”
Why is it that not judging is so dangerous? It is simply because God requires that we do. You will be wide open to all manner of error, false doctrine and other garbage if you do not judge rightly.
In this day we are seeing an outpouring of deception, which our Lord warned against many times. One of the major characteristics of the end time scenario is deception.
But more than that we are also in a world of moral collapse, where Biblical virtues are being attacked and thrown out. If you do not judge / discern into these situations, you are complicit by your silence and a spineless push-over for the devil. He will capitalise on your capitulation and you will regret it forever!
Let me share with you a terrible example from hell itself. I know this individual who believes that all people want peace. He believes that peace is the big thing and everything must be bent and twisted so that world peace can be created! Sounds good hey?
►If it is possible to have world peace now, God and Satan would have to make peace! Think about that for a while. Peace will never come to this world until the world’s “peace-maker”, Satan is destroyed.
Here is the only way to world peace. Do you see that peace of any description, especially world peace can only be achieved through the cross of Messiah?
Colossians 1:20 “He has reconciled all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of the cross.” Anything or anyone that has not gone through the work of the cross is impure.
The safety of judgment:
Psalm 37:30 “The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom, and his tongue talks of justice.”
When you are in a world that has borders and barriers, you feel safe, unless you’re a skydiver!
The one who knows experientially the judgment of God is pure and of great value in God’s hands. Taking God’s word and judging yourself in line with it, will make you different, glorious, wonderful, safe, secure, confident and give you great insight into so many things. God Himself will open to you the secrets of His wisdom.
The word in your heart is your greatest comfort and security. Inviting the word into every aspect of your life is the best thing you can ever do. Apart from the safety it creates, it gives you confidence to go forward, knowing that you are clean and holy.
In fact holiness, righteousness and judgment are synonymous in many respects.
I warn you:
What you believe and allow into your life now in terms of the Middle East situation is a rising fence between heaven and hell. It is all a deadly, dangerous spiritual conflict that most people are blind to. If you are blind to a very big enemy, you are in trouble.
There are very big judgements coming from God on the whole world in relation to these things very soon. You had better be on the right side! We are in a situation where God is pouring out His grace and goodness on those who are His. He is also delivering “strong delusion” on those who are not with Him.
Please bear in mind that there is no middle ground. Our Lord says, “If you are not with Me, you are against Me. Do you want to be against God in these days?
You must know your Bible well in these days. You must see with spiritual eyes and you must see the hosts of demons at work to bring you to great success with the god of the world. If you can’t see spiritual forces at work you are in danger and you know what you must do to get spiritual eyes.
Your biggest enemy:
You feed from your biggest enemy every day! Of course its fine to get the news in the broader sense from the mass media, but most people have no idea at all that they are dealing with Satan himself in his “angel of light,” disguise!
The most dangerous people on earth today are the journalists, editors and bosses of the mass media. They are driven by disguised gods, and demons to influence and change you. I will have much more to say about this in the next edition.
It is the Godly, the strong and those who are right with God who judge rightly all the time. It is the spineless and weak who do not judge.
You must be different! Not in the energy of the flesh, but by and through the Spirit of God working in you. What you tolerate and what you allow into your life speaks volumes.
2 Corinthians 6:17 “Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you.”
I took this picture in spectacular Namaqualand. This area springs to life with billions of wild flowers for a short time over an area stretching more than 1000 kms.

Shalom and grow in grace!
