|This ministry has a distinct kingdom, Messianic vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for the Jewish people and the church. My position is pre-trib! Personally: I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share these great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God.|

- The Kushner / Trump peace initiative’s first stage has been largely rejected by the Arab nations. The Palestinians responded by setting fire to pictures of Trump and Netanyahu and launched a three day protests at the same time (against $50bn being offered in aid).
- The Iran situation is getting HOT! President Trump’s new economic sanctions on Tehran will further force them into a corner. Iran’s response has been more threats of military retaliation and aggression. Iran is now moving ever closer to her oft-stated intention to bring about Hitler’s “final solution” by wiping Israel out! Iran has an Israeli surprise coming!!This situation, when it escalates will involve proxies and allies on both sides. Israel will be drawn in – Israel is the prophetic key!
There are so many things of prophetic significance on the horizon right now – I will add these items as and if required – stay tuned.
The new agenda for the “good" of all is a globalist, socialist, one world order, with an inter-faith religion, and the mass-media as its voice. All these have a powerful unifying spirit at work in them – the spirit of antichrist. Socialism, like the Stalinist is of Satanism. You can never get rid of poverty by giving someone money. Poverty is a spiritual force essentially rooted in a curse from which deliverance is needed.
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!
The walls of Jerusalem:
Poetry is not really my thing. But I do recall lots of poetic thoughts as I walked around the streets of Jerusalem some time ago. I was awe struck not by where our Messiah walked, but the thrilling thought of where He will walk. The dusty streets, stones and walls became the subject of some paintings I did later. But I’m now going to wax lyrical. I’ve put together a painting of words – for your benefit.
Ancient stones are whispering silent soliloquies, among the sun-burnt walls. Corner-stones of spiritual stability and strength, still stand secure, riddled with holes of the ancient hatred’s bullets, and stained with dried blood of ages past, and present times too.
These stones of Jerusalem’s protection are stones of separation – holy, immovable stones, seemingly dead, but breathing life of living history. The moss-dripping masonry are milestones, with living, green twigs in crags - walls of ruined relics, written into eternity’s word.
Listen to the stones; put your ear to the walls of wisdom. Do you hear the cries of the dead? Do you hear the shrieks of celebration? Do you hear the rocks, the great carved boulders, and the pebbles, anointed with glorious and fearful prophecy?
The scarred stones of poetic justice are again announcing judgement soon to fall. The ancient stones are echoing the warnings of God. No other city-stones speak thus.
Sin's offering, the offspring of evil, will soon yield frightful fruit: Fear, horror, terror and panic. Even the beautiful aged stones of Jerusalem will shiver and shake under earth’s soon quaking!
Yet the calm, confident, contentment of fearless holiness, and eternal beauty will stand secure amongst the strain and stress of destruction's dread.
Sin’s eternal separation from the victory and glory-producing suffering of Calvary will soon be the shock of all shocks to the sin-filled world of self-worship.
Do you see the lion on the wall? Do you hear the eternal Lion, and His severe message? Do you hear God’s trumpets under His Lion’s feet and in His roar?
Can you distinguish between the Lion of God and the roaring counterfeit lion frightening only the spiritually frightened and fragile?
Sound the trumpet! Sound the glistening terrible trumpet. Sound the trumpet of ingathering. Sound the trumpet of great victory! The world’s blinded ears see nothing – fools of tragic fools - deceived in the midst of God’s shining love – rejected!
Sound the trumpet! Sound David’s harp, and raise the golden sword of glorious victory!
The sword of Satan has pierced the Shepherd, but soon the Shepherd’s sword shall strike the roaring serpent and the people will scatter to a certain hell, with all the sin-filled nations drowning in their doomed sin. Babylon’s man-made, imposter-made,confused bricks of mortar will be no more.
Sound the trumpet. Raise the alarm, raise the sword of glory, and roar, Lion of Judah - roar! Awaken your people from fateful slumber, to their coming Lamb.
The stonework of the stonemasons of Jerusalem speaks of salvation past, present, and soon to come. The stones of Jerusalem contain a living message, a message of life, eternal life, freely given but of utmost cost and glorious value.
But you must bow your speak to the speak of these sculptured, weathered virtues. You must fall on your face in the dust before the message of these rocks of ages. As you do, salvation speaks, and soon shouts, lighting the core of your life with unquenchable, immortal fire – the fire of God!
These old speaking stones sing a new song of stern severity, of great gravity. They are sharp, hard stones, but soft and gentle to His own. They are stones of solid prophecy. They will fall on and crush the nations. They speak of things to come, and very soon too.
As we see the spectacular, dramatic, majestic message of the walls of Jerusalem, Let’s take a glimpse into the exclusive, holy, eternity of eternities:
There will be stones of pure silver, streets of glorious gold. All around, imbedded in gates and walls, always open, will be unimaginable jewels. They will be jasper, sapphire, emerald, pearls, topaz, beryl, amethyst, rubies diamonds, and more.
There will be no sun or moon - the light of God’s glory will be everywhere, forever – always.
There will be the tree of life, next to crystal rivers, each tree yielding fruit once a month and there shall be no more curse! Lions shall be your friends.
The army of the Lord will now be the bride of Messiah, bedecked in righteousness, with incorruptible crowns of untarnished magnificence, ready - forever and ever.
Isaiah 9:7 “Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end...”
The Lion of lions, the Lamb of God, the sword of pure peace, will be our very comfort and eternal grace. Stones once silent, will serenade and sing with a song of songs and a descant that will reverberate through the universe.
Are you ready for the great grandeur - the glory to come?
Edition 225. September 17th 2014
Rest in peace!
Rest in peace:
The biggest most tragic lie in the world is found on the tombstones of untold millions of people. Rest in Peace or RIP is an absolute lie, except for the few who were genuinely saved. There is no rest for the wicked, says the Bible and there is no peace in hell.
The great majority of those in the graves under the sign “RIP” are in great torment in hell.
Because you place “RIP” on a tombstone, do you think that makes any difference to the person’s life while he was here? Who do you think you are – God?
Do you think a person rests in peace in death because he or she was a good person as proclaimed by the minister at the funeral?
We are heading fast for the seven-year tribulation. About 4 billion people will die unnatural deaths in the seven year period! I believe, in a pre-tribulation rapture, but we will all still see the birth-pangs and forerunners.
With all this in mind, in this edition I want to direct you into your own heart, beliefs, experiences and actions in preparation for our Lord.
The power of the cross:
The greatest deceiver in the world is your own self. Self will always tell you that you’re okay and you can do it. You don’t need the cross, no dying for you, have fun in the world. Do you know that anything in this world can be turned into an idol by a self-ruled heart, and every idol needs to be destroyed! It will either be destroyed by you or ultimately by God.
The false, counterfeit minister will always lead you away from cross-bearing into idolatry. The true minister will see your need for the cross, brokenness and surrender.
Today the cry of the shallow shepherds is “come to God and have a jolly good time, full of worldly pleasures.” They say, “Come to God and find self-fulfilment, self-love, self motivation, self esteem, and self glorification – all with God, your sponsor leading the way!
Yes, come to God for salvation, but don’t think He owes you anything and don’t think that you’re coming to God because you’re so special that He needs you! You must come to Him in helpless surrender and repentance, and then God will kill you!
He will say to you, “You are useless to Me.” He will say to you, “That cross lying there is what you must take up daily. You must die daily”!
Don’t get me wrong, if you have sincerely come to our Lord for salvation and you get run over by a bus before you even touch your own cross, you will be saved. What I’m talking about here is discipleship and moving along the road to deeper victory through and in the salvation of the soul.
You must consciously apply the cross of Messiah to your life and take up your own cross daily. The cross is the great killer. It is the killer of death itself. It is the killer of sin and evil. Yes, the power of sin has been defeated by the cross of Calvary, but we still need to deal with the lingering effects of sin in our lives by taking up our own cross.
● In a certain sense, we are going from His victory in us to our victory in Him.
●You must see and sense that you are moving from death into resurrection life. The cross is the killer; the resurrection is the life- giver.
●We must see our Lord on the cross paying the price for our sin, and be co-crucified with Him. We must then see our Lord on the throne; this is the way to victory forever.
A major characteristic of self on the throne is that it will keep you from taking up your cross and denying self! You can’t take up a cross while self is seated on the throne! This will keep you under the sway and power of the devil.
Are you becoming holy? Are your sins dropping off? Is your life moving from cross-death to the reality of resurrection life? My friends, resurrection life is all about a new world of rest and peace forever.
You see, as the cross saves us, destroys self-love, world-love and the demonic in us; we are delivered to holiness and His resurrection life. This is true power. This is why people who have gone this way are hated by the devil and those who are enemies of the cross of Messiah.
Holiness has a very special beauty and attraction to it, but it is hated by the counterfeit Christian and the disciples of the devil.
The army of God is a bride of purity. These are the ones who are needed in this day. God will not use people who worship the true God and the god of this world.
Exodus 33:13-14 “If I have found grace in Your sight, show me now your way, that I may know You and that I might find grace in your sight...And He said, ‘My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.’”
Those who have found their lives in the world have missed it! They unwittingly present to everyone this false “salvation”. Success in the world is the way to be, they say!
The success of the atheist is failure. The success of the celebrity is failure. The success of the whole world is failure, because it has not been purified by the cross.
Imagine driving down a road to an expected destination, and you’ve been on the wrong road all along, with a map book on the seat next to you which you didn’t even open.
Far too many are trying to attain all the promises of God - His goodness and provision - but they are ‘thieves’. They think they can get all the good fruits of knowing God without coming to God His way. The reality is that you can’t steal anything from God. Almost all the unsaved of the world want God’s salvation, but they don’t want God’s interference in their lives. They want forgiveness without repentance.
People spend their lives striving for their own breed of perfection, success and happiness. It’s mostly based on materialism, but essentially on what the media says you must be. Imagine striving all your life for perfect peace and landing in hell! Measuring up to the world does not crack it with God!
If you’re not preparing yourself for Messiah with the leading of the Spirit, you will be led and prepared by the apostate spirit of the false church, for the antichrist!
Isaiah 44:18 "They do not know nor understand, for He has shut their eyes so that they can't see and shut and darkened their hearts so that they can't understand."
2 Corinthians 4:3-4 "Our gospel is hidden to them that are lost in whom the god of this world has blinded the eyes of them who believe not."
When the church makes sense to the world it has fallen!
To know truth you must want to know it, and be prepared to change your tune.
Believing will not get you saved. Millions go to church every Sunday believing that they are saved because they believe in Jesus. You must be born again. There is a huge difference between believing and being born-again. All those who are born-again are believers, but not all those who believe are born-again! Believing happens in your head while the new-birth happens in your heart with a new creation being the result, filtering through to the mind.
Even the devils and demons believe, but are most certainly not saved! (James2:19)
Believing, for the true born-again Christian is all about a broken contrite heart and Spirit- led truth. Believing, for the professing non-born again Christian is a doorway for all manner of spirits of error and demons especially in this day.
2 Corinthians 5:15 “He died for all that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.”
John 12:43 “They loved the praise (approval) of men more than the approval of God.”
Galatians 1:10 “Do I now persuade men or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a servant of Messiah.”
Rest and peace in these end-times:
The soon coming tribulation period will be exactly that – a time of unprecedented trouble, tribulation, war, conflict, death and destruction. As regular readers know, I believe in a pre-tribulation rapture (See editions dealing with this in the “Editions by subject” index.) I also believe, as do many others, that the tribulation will begin on a Feast of Trumpets. It could be this one on the 25th, but now looks more likely to be the next.
Either way, it’s all rolling along very soon. With these terrible times will come terrible times in the hearts and minds of most people.
Are you living for our Lord or for yourself? Our deep rest lies in surrender and looking to our Lord away from yourself. It’s a liberating great thing when you discover that you are no longer your own but His, for His purposes.
When you realise that you were created for a purpose, you are on the way to living with purpose. (And no I’m not talking about the damned “purpose driven life” of the cursed emergent church frauds.)
As you realise you were created for a purpose, God begins to prepare you for that purpose. What a wonderful story. Your eyes are opened more and more, the veil is parted more and more and magnificent things begin to happen in the core of your being.
1 Corinthians 2:16 “To one we are the aroma of death to death and to the other the aroma of life.”
Think of everything God has done, think of every atom in the universe. Think of time, space, judgment, love, holiness. Think of the One who knows everything that there is to know. Think of God’s grace and mercy. How can you not be dramatically affected forever by an encounter with this God?
As the world races towards its greatest and most tragic appointment and encounter with the Judge of all judges, turmoil, tragedy, stress and conflict will intensify and be the order of the day.
Revelation 6:4 “The fiery red horse went out and it was granted to him who sat on it to take peace from the earth.”
Revelation 12:12 “Rejoice O heavens and all who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea, for the devil has come down to you having great wrath, because he knows that his time is short.”
Into this great drama you are appointed to do the work of the great King and bring the rest and peace of God to multitudes in the valley of decision.
Peace in these days:
In these days of turmoil, you can be and must be different. You must be our Lord’s messenger, but you must be the message yourself! What an amazing privilege we have bestowed on us!
Have a deep look into these verses:
Psalm 119:165 “Great peace have those who love Your word and nothing causes them to stumble.”
Isaiah 48:18 “Oh that you had heeded My commandments! Then your peace would be like a river and your righteousness like the waves of the sea.”
Isaiah 26:3 “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You.”
Psalm 147:11-14 “The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him, in those who hope in His mercy...He makes peace in your borders.”
Proverbs 3:13-17 “Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding...All her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her and retain her.”
John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither be afraid.”
No peace in these days:
Christianity has been so infiltrated with the spirit of the world that it’s poisonous. Motivational self-orientation and superficial stimulation is needed to keep the so-called converts content. These self-confident, sorrow-less fools masquerading as Christians claim to have power, but they are full of evil and a counterfeit power.
The worldly wolves behind the pulpit have modified the cross to suit their own golden-calf pleasures.
God is the author of truth and He leads into truth. Self, the world, the media and the demonic create error and lead you into it.
God is not confused. So how did we end up with 30,000 ‘Christian’ denominations? It’s a result of the cross being cast aside and self-will ruling the roost.
Today there is no restraint, because there are no absolutes or consequences. The preaching of the law as a schoolmaster has long gone. In its place has come the preaching of tolerance of sin and excessive grace and liberty.
Jeremiah 14: 13-14 “The prophets say to them, you shall not see the sword nor famine but I will give you assured peace in this place. And the Lord said, ‘the prophets prophesy lies in My name. I have not sent them...”
Here are a few tragic verses of great significance:
Proverbs 29:18 “Where there is no vision (prophetic revelation) the people cast off restraint.”
Deuteronomy 29:19-20 “I shall have peace even though I walk in the imaginations of my own heart...The Lord would not spare him.”
Isaiah 57:20-21 “The wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no peace says my God for the wicked.”
Isaiah 59:8 “The way of peace they have not known, they have no justice, their paths are crooked; whoever takes that way shall not know peace.”
Daniel 8:25 “Through his (antichrist’s) cunning he will cause deceit to prosper under his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart. He shall destroy many in their peace and prosperity. He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without human hand.”
1 Thessalonians 5:3 “When they say peace and safety, then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labour pains upon a pregnant woman, and they shall not escape.”
How to know if you’re saved and on the right track:
●You know that you’re different and something changed in your heart.
●Your thought life changes. You are willing to repent. A pure heart with pure thoughts leads you to a holy and pure life.
●You begin to see the word of the world and its mouthpiece, the mass media, as your enemy.
●There must be a noticeably devastating effect on your relationship with the world, self and the demonic.
●You will be led to have no relationship with the super dragon-church with two horns like a lamb, the vampire blood drinkers and cannibal flesh-eaters (Eucharist), the sex-goddess worshipers (Ishstar or Easter) and sun god of Christmas. You will be led to identify and remove what that the evil Catholic church has brought into the world. (Oh did you know Saint Nick is an ancient title for Satan?)
●You will see the darkness. Being in the light, you will see clearly where you are going and how to get there.
●You will be growing and glowing in holiness. The word ‘holiness’ means “separation”, or to be “apart from.” It means to be separate from the spirit of the world, Satan, the demonic and all such things. It means to be cleansed, set apart and different from all that has not gone through the cross of Messiah.
●If God is at work, He will lead you with others in unity into all truth. It is truth that creates peace. When you discover that 2+2=4 and not 5 you rest in peace.
●You will be a great friend to Israel and the Jewish people in spite of their warts and in spite of the majority of churches turning against them.
Here are a few powerful verses for your meditation:
Revelation 18:4 “And I heard another voice from heaven saying, ‘come out of her (Babylon) My people lest you share in her sins, and let her receive of her plagues.’”
1 Corinthians 1:18 “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved, it is the power of God.”
Philippians 3:10 “That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death.”
Psalm 55:18 “He has redeemed my soul in peace from the battle which was against me, for there were many against me.”
The shed blood of Messiah is the antithesis of the blood of Satan flowing in the veins of all who are outside of the cross of Messiah. The shed blood of Messiah can only come into your life and bring with it its dramatic effects by choice at the new birth. The unrighteous blood of Satan flows in the unsaved automatically, by natural birth. The difference is as far as distance between heaven and hell.
One comes by natural means and the other by supernatural means. One sets truly free while the other is inbred slavery. One loves the other, while the other hates the One!
Do you think you will be saved because you are good? You fool! Satan has tried to get mankind to “be as God” since that day in the garden! So many are full of the knowledge of the tree of good and evil, they are full of knowledge and wisdom. That good will get you a one way ride to hell.
If you are on the right track, you will be moving forward with our Lord from the dimension of rest and peace to the next – forever forward!
The pursuit of God is easy if you want to. Many people secretly love sin and have no chance of getting near God in that state. If you look for the truth you will find comfort. If you look for comfort you will find neither.
What must you do?
There is so little time left. As the things of this world begin to shake, masses will come looking for the truth.
Can God use you? Is your life usable in a true Biblical sense? Are you prepared to pay the price to become one of God’s servants at this exciting time?
What is your life? Who are you? Have you come to God’s kingdom to find His purpose for creating you? Or have you been moulded and created by the media for hell?
Acts 20:24 “I do not count my life dear to me, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Yeshua, to testify to the grace of God.”
I took this picture in a mangrove swamp. Those are roots and a new plant springing up.
Ephesians 5:8 “You were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of the light.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
