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.”

21st February 2020
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 250. March 11th 2015
The prophetic future of Iran:
The prophetic future of Iran:
We have heard what Netanyahu has to say about Iran and we know what Obama has to say. But what does God have to say? You may be shocked and amazed!
It is of course more important to know what our Lord says on any issue. Most times, especially on important biblical issues it’s the opposite of what CNN, the mass-media and the world thinks and believes.
Identifying Iran in the Bible:
Many say that Iran is ancient Persia in the Bible. That is true, but the Bible also breaks it down into smaller areas which are within modern day Iran. In fact Iran is a modern name. The nation was always called Persia until 1935.
Elam is within modern day western Iran, in the region of the Persian Gulf.
Jeremiah 49:34-39 “The word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah the prophet against Elam...Behold I will break the bow of Elam, the foremost in their might. Against Elam I will bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and scatter them towards all those winds; there shall be no nations where the outcasts of Elam will not go. For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies, and before those who seek their lives. I will bring disaster upon them, My fierce anger says the Lord; and I will send the sword after them until I have consumed them. I will set My throne in Elam, and will destroy from there, the kings and the princes, says the Lord. It shall come to pass in the latter days.”
The last part of the verse above gives the time frame. It is to occur in the “last days”. All commentators agree that this verse has not yet been fulfilled.
Our Lord says, “He will break the bow of Elam (Iran). “Bow” would refer to weapons of warfare. In modern terms, it could be a missile launcher or the like. “The four winds” could be literal, but are more likely to be a reference to international military forces including air forces. The verse says that the people of Iran will flee to all nations. It is very clear that the Lord’s fierce anger is involved here and the result will be huge destruction, but not the complete destruction of Iran.
Iran your days are numbered!
The above verses relating to Elam may be added to the verses of Ezekiel 38 & 39, which describe what is well known as WW111. Persia (Iran) is the subject of these verses as well, but here we see Iran completely destroyed, while the verses in Jeremiah imply a partial destruction.
Another significant difference between the wars of Jeremiah and Ezekiel is the fact that Israel is the main defender in Ezekiel while Jeremiah does not name Israel.
The ‘Elam’ war verses above may occur before WW111, but may also be part of it...we will have to wait and see.
Elam includes the area where the Iranian nuclear power generator is. This is a highly active seismic spot with numerous earthquakes. The power station has been down more than it has been operating due to many technical and other problems. Any big accident or even attack on the power station would cause a huge Chernobyl-type event
Zechariah 1:14 “The angel spoke with me and said proclaim, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘I am zealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with great zeal. I am exceedingly angry with the nations at ease...”
What’s in a name?
The name Iran comes from the word “Aryan”, the two even sound similar. “Aryan” should be ringing bells.
1935 was the year the Nuremberg race laws in Germany were introduced against the Jews. These laws identified the Jews as an “inferior race” that could never be part of the Aryan race.
The proposal to change the name of the country then called Persia to Iran was in 1935 but didn’t become official until 1939. Now isn’t that incredible? That’s just when World War Two (WW11) was getting underway (1939 – 1945). So, Persia became Iran or ‘Aryan’ just as Hitler was preparing to create an Aryan world by exterminating the Jews.
You may be interested to know that the Swastika is a well used symbol in Iran. It was used by the ancients Aryans 3000 years ago!
You may be very surprised to know what the word ‘Swastika’ means!
Actually, it’s made up of a number of root words, “su,” “asti,” and “ka.” These words mean “good to be.” In other words it means, “To be good.” The word has within its root-meaning the humanistic attempt to be good or have a good future world. It became the symbol of an ongoing world of peace.
The symbol is rooted in the occult, ancient paganism and devil worship.
The Swastika originally represented the revolving sun of Mithra’s wheel. This Aryan symbol occurred first in ancient Persia where it represented infinite, continuing recreation producing a good future. In fact the Swastika even looks like a revolving turning wheel.
Another meaning of the Swastika is “Evolution of the universe.”
Here’s the amazing thing. It represents the Aryan evolution to a perfect world of peace! It represents peace and well-being in revolving, evolutionary transition.
In some pagan beliefs the four arms represent the revolving sun. In others, the four arms represent the four corners of the world and the four stages of life toward perfection.
In ancient Persia among the Aryans, the Swastika also represented the power of “sacred fire” in sun-god worship. Their worship demanded sacrifice by fire to their sun-god, so they could come to ultimate perfection. By the way, the word ‘Holocaust’ comes from the root word ‘Holokaustum’ meaning ‘great sacrifice by fire.’
In Buddhist theology the Swastika represents the harmony and balance of opposites and the coming together of good and evil to produce ultimate world peace.
So now we have a fateful connection between Iran / Aryan / Nazi Germany / the Swastika and our present situation. Can you see how significant this is? Is it all coincidence? I think not!
●The flag of Iran has the words “Allah Akbar” repeated 22 times above the central sword. In Bible numerics the number 22 refers to ‘disintegration’. (22 is also 2x11, with 11 being a key occult number.)
Have you ever wondered why Iran wants to wipe Israel off the map? We know that it’s tied up in the ultimate goal of Islam, but it’s also because Iran has the same visions of grandeur that Hitler had, which was to produce a perfect world and in their eyes the only way that can be done is without Jews.
The various sects of Islam hate each other, but they’re united in their hatred for Israel and the Jew. In fact the source of the hatred is Satan himself.
The signs and what Israel must do:
1 Chronicles 12:32-33 “Of Issachar, men who have understanding (Lit= to have insight) of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, 200 chiefs, and all their kinsmen were under their command. Of Zebulun there were fifty thousand who went out to battle, experts in war with all weapons of war, stouthearted men who could keep ranks.”
The sons of Issachar knew the celestial signs. This applies to the prophetic importance of the lunar cycles and the Feasts of the Lord and would include signs such as the lunar eclipse tetrad, solar eclipses and the like.
Israel’s military machine will be “experts in warfare”, highly disciplined “people who can keep rank”. In other words they will be loyal to God’s covenants and not be influenced by the opinions of the world.
Israel will be brought to our Lord and Messiah soon, but it will be through great catastrophe. The following verses are monumental, tragic, frightening, exciting, and full of gravity and severity:
Isaiah 31:5, 9 “Like birds flying about, so will the Lord of hosts defend Jerusalem. Defending, He will also deliver it; passing over He will preserve it...The Lord’s fire is in Zion and whose furnace is in Jerusalem.”
Isaiah 48:10 “Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction.”
Ezekiel 22:20-21 (Israel in the furnace) “I will gather you into the midst of Jerusalem. As men gather silver, bronze, iron, lead and tin into the midst of a furnace to blow fire on it to melt it, so I will gather you in my anger and in my fury and I will leave you there and melt you.” (The rest of this portion of scripture speaks of the unholy priests and prophets leading Israel into un-holiness like wolves.)
These verses above, and there are many more like them, show the rough road Israel will go down to meet her Messiah. At times it will appear that it’s all over for Israel. But we know the wonderful outcome!
Please don’t believe the many out there who are saying that God will just destroy all Israel’s enemies and bring her smoothly through. Yes that will be the ultimate outcome, but it will involve great tribulation to get there and a second Holocaust.
What Obama, Kerry and his friends are missing is Iran’s repeated statements on wiping Israel off the map. This desire was renewed by Iran only a few days ago. Interestingly the current nuclear negotiations with Iran are about her uranium enrichment desires, but not about her desires to ‘wipe Israel off the map.’ Shouldn’t that be the foremost issue and focus?
That’s like sitting around negotiating on what calibre of gun to give an unrepentant psychopathic mass-murderer.
I notice that Iran has not once been brought to book for these statements. What is really shocking is that Kerry and the European negotiators are trying to strike a deal with a nation whose immediate intentions are out there for everyone to see.
Let me give you a little clue – you can’t make peace with the devil...it will backfire on you!
Iran’s big nuclear lie swallowed by the Muslim liar in the White House:
Iran does not need nuclear power. It has more than enough oil. It needs fuel for its single nuclear generator. It does not need to produce this fuel. All countries with nuclear power, besides the few producers of the fuel, can and do buy their nuclear fuel commercially from any one of a number of suppliers.
So why then does Iran have to create so much controversy over its enrichment program and desires? None of the other countries running peaceful nuclear plants have the same dilemma on the go, not one!
If your intentions are for peaceful nuclear power, what is there to negotiate over?
Iran is a liar. Its intentions are to create weapons grade nuclear fuel. That is what the negotiations have been about – to limit this. And then Kerry, Obama and his brigade of liars tell the world it’s all for peaceful purposes. Those who are discerning would have noted the big slip by Obama when he admitted on the news that Iran was enriching to “dangerous” levels.
Do you want to see it yourself? The relevant section starts at 2.38 minutes in the clip HERE.
In terms of Iran’s intentions here is another shocker:
Iranian Finance Minister says of Netanyahu; “He sees peace as an existential threat.” What a perfect example of what I’ve been saying for many years: Peace in Islamic terms is the absence of resistance to itself and the implementation of Sharia law worldwide! Please remember that. Peace is the absence of resistance to Islam, in their eyes.
The Obama administration has now thrown Israel under the bus and befriended Iran. These giant shifts in allegiance will have drastic, dramatic effects on the US, the Middle East, Israel and the world!
Within the US there are many who will stand with Israel. Do not change that position. The next few months are going to be monumental – be prepared and strengthen your faith and friendship with Israel.
Nukes in the Bible:
“Megaseismos” is the Biblical word meaning “great shaking” It can be used for great earthquake, or volcano, or atom-bomb!
Here are some verses where this could be the case:
Isaiah 29:6 “You (Jerusalem) will be punished by the Lord of hosts with thunder and earthquake and great noise, with storm and tempest and the flame of devouring fire.”
Ezekiel 38:19 “For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath, I have spoken: Surely in that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel.”
Zechariah 14:12 “This shall be the plague with which the Lord will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, and their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths.”
Some nuclear facts: Pakistan created 18 nuclear bombs with 6000 centrifuges. Iran is being allowed to run 6500 centrifuges. According to Kerry and Obama this is not enough to make a nuclear bomb! Someone is lying!
The image below came to me as a real shock. It was taken on the day of Purim (a few days ago) and shows Netanyahu holding a silver megillah, with the scroll of Esther protruding from it. The megillah is the container for the biblical scrolls. But it has a secondary meaning which is why it came to me as a shock at this particular time. There is a tragic message wrapped up here.
For the sake of space and so as not to repeat the whole story, I refer you to edition 147 on this website, where I discuss the entire story of the flying megillahs. It is under the headline “I have found WMD” and you find it HERE.
The biggest lie in the world coming from Iran, the Palestinians, other Arab nations, Obama, Kerry, CNN and others of the mass-media is that they want peace with Israel.
My friends, time is running out. We could be on the doorstep of monumental prophetic events. There is so much on the go now. Wait until you see what is going to be happening in September? I’ll share some of those things with you soon.
I did a few paintings similar to this, mixing and matching the various elements. I think the best description would be, abstract, ethnic, organic.
I took the picture below on the edge of the giant salt pan at Etosha, Namibia.

Shalom and grow in grace!
