|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.|

- US Ambassador to Israel says Trump will not evict Jews from Judea and Samaria (so-called West Bank) Pompeo says US “fully prepared for military action in Middle East.”
- US Democratic candidate, Elizabeth Warren plans to withhold aid to Israel because of the “settlements.” The anti-Israel bias is showing in the Dems again!
- Netanyahu gives up effort to form a government on his 70th birthday and returns mandate to President Rivlin, who will now give the mandate to Gantz for a try.
- Syrian Kurds call on Israel to take action against Turkey! Pompeo says Trump ready to use military force against Turkey if needed.
- Numbers of Arab states are simultaneous “warming” towards Israel. These nations are Iran’s enemies. This is a fulfilment of Bible prophecy. (Isaiah 19) Some are: Saudi Arabia (Sheba) UAE (Part of Dedan), Bahrain, Oman, and other Gulf States. Washington is pushing for these Arab states to unite in support of Israel, creating an anti-Iran alliance. There are many reasons why this would be good, for the region, including economic and strategic in relation to the Gulf of Mexico as a prime oil-tanker route.
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
Isaiah 56:5 “...I will give them (Israel) an everlasting name that they should not be cut off.”
Isaiah 66:8 “Who has heard of such a thing, shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation (Israel) be born at once?”
Hosea 11:1 “When Israel was a child, I loved him...”
Exodus 4:22 “Thus says the Lord: ‘Israel is My son, My firstborn.”
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.
18th October 2019
Shabbat Shalom to all!
- There is still no Israeli government in sight as Bennie Gantz rejects Netanyahu’s latest offer to form a unity government. But Gantz says he is thinking about it. It is this impasse that is delaying the release of the “Deal of the Century.”
- AThe US brokered ceasefire in Syria is falling apart one day after it was instituted! Mike Pompeo tells Netanyahu this morning (18th October) that the US will still support Israel.
- Late breaking news is that this morning 18th October, the ceasefire has broken down with renewed fighting, shelling and bombing in the region of the ceasefire as smoke rises from towns.
- Iran says it will continue to violate the nuclear deal as it moves to higher levels of uranium enrichment, provoking the world and Israel in particular.
- The Russian bear is making serious, strategic advances in Syria and in the wider Middle East. Iran and Turkey are fateful players, preparing the way for WW111 (The war of Gog and Magog, Syria and others. We are witnessing a very fast reshuffling of the stage.
- What we are seeing in the Middle East is battle for power and control – all perfectly prophesied!
Israel has a beady eye on it all. Prophetically, Israel must be a key component of these wars. It really doesn’t matter who does what, because prophecy will and is being fulfilled!
By the way, because the Bible prophecies certain things that does not mean it is sanctioning those things. They will come to pass right or wrong.
Bible interpretation and application:
In this report I want to draw your attention to some very important issues relating to our understanding of the Bible. These issues have always been important, but now as we head into these dangerous end-times, it is of critical importance.
We need to understand that Bible prophecy comes in various forms. Sometimes it is written directly for the present time exclusively. For example, the prophecies of Isaiah 17 relating to the soon coming destruction of Damascus, Syria, have never had an occurrence in history. Therefore its interpretation and application is for one point in time – now.
Then, we have many prophecies that were events that took place historically. That would be the interpretation. But they may have application to future events. This is called prophecy with a double reference. In these cases you need to be well disciplined in your application. Never take and application or analogy too far!
In dealing with prophetic application you must always be on guard against presumption. You really do need the gifts of the Spirit to correctly see into prophecy. Bear in mind that the word of God is useless, dead letter, or it is alive and presently speaking. The baptism in the Spirit makes the difference.
Sometimes a prophetic vision or message may be built on a number of different sources, and like a grand conductor, the Spirit of God puts it all together.
Prophetic interpretation and application must not contradict any verse in the Bible.
There is much to be said about prophetic dreams and visions. Personally, I don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater, but I’m very cautious. More so from whom they originate.
But, the Bible says that there will be an increase in dreams and vision as the end approaches. We must be watchful, but also watchful in relation to whom these dreams and visions come from, because many, in their pride, are on the manipulation band wagon!
The central purpose behind all prophecy is to reveal and inform us about the coming of our Lord, It is o give us knowledge, understanding, wisdom and sight of His soon coming and all the events surrounding His coming. It is bring Israel face to face with her Messiah.
Bible prophecy also reveals the work of the enemy. It reveals the modern kiss of Judas in replacement theology!
Time is very short!
We must always beware of spiritual novices with some of these gifts. Many of them create a big mess, which has to be unravelled.
We must always be aware of the spirit in and behind certain Bible teachers and ministers. Too many have a pride and ego problem, which the devil uses to bring in great error. Too many are subtly creating division, which becomes a sect and finally a cult!
Beware of those who come with forcefull "private or personal interpretations". (2 Peter 1:20)
Here is a shocking portion of scripture:
1 Corinthians 1:10-13 “I plead with you brethren, by the name of our Lord, 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 in the same judgement...Now I say to you this, that each of you says, ‘I am of Paul’, or ‘I am of Apollos’, or ‘I am of Cephas’, or ‘I am of Christ.’ Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptised in the name of Paul?”
This scripture above is a terrible indictment on the church. Today we see so clearly, the disastrous effects of a church divided. Yet we still the proud and arrogant, trying to “capture” and control people in their divisive sects.
There is strength in unity. There is extra strength in godly unity. In these days a solid Spirt-led knowledge of God’s word is an absolute necessity and a safety net
You should listen to no one who has does not have the evidence and fruit of listening to, and understanding the voice of God. There are many voices out there, all vying for your attention. Learn to be discerning and shut off the voices of the world.
In your pursuit of God and in your own study time, you need to be seriously disciplined. I heard someone say the other day: “They’ve taken away discipline in the schools now the children don’t respect us, their parents anymore.”
How true and tragic that statement is. It applies jus as well to your relationship with our Lord. No discipline no respect for Him and don’t expect to get anything from Him.
Part of our discipline involves waiting patiently for our Lord. What alternative do we have? But keep your spiritual eyes and ears open. Things may suddenly develop very fast!
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!
