Shabbat Shalom to all!
Who owns your truth?
Jeremiah 2:11-13 “Has a nation changed its gods, which are not gods? But My people have changed their glory, for what does not profit. Be astonished O heavens at this, and be horribly afraid. Become very desolate says the Lord. For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters and hewn for themselves broken cisterns that can hold no water.”
Many people are at a crossroad right now. Which way they go will bring them great victory or deep darkness!
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 21:14 “They say to God, ‘depart from us, for we do not desire the knowledge of Your ways.’”
We have a growing divide right now between the godless liberal left and those that stand for a nation under God. The divide is actually correct, because “two can’t walk together unless they be agreed.”
O f course political parties don’t agree that’s normal, but all should agree on one ultimate authority and provider of truth – God and His word. The basic principles of the virtues of God should be held in esteem above the law of the land or politicians in all nations.
The removal of the word of God from society places it in godless jeopardy with Satan and his word now the authority. Pelosi is a good example of that. So many things get removed from society when the Bible is removed including the all important four swords revealed in the Bible:
●The sword of murder, ●the sword of Capital punishment, ●the sword of war, ●the sword of the Spirit.
If you remove the Bible’s definition of murder (homicide) it sends a message of tolerance with crime and destroys deterrence. If you remove the sword of capital punishment, you meet out injustice to the victim. If you remove the sword of war, you create a nation of push-over pacifists. If you remove the sword of the Spirit, you remove the authority of the believer and make him defenceless.
This is the way to weaken a nation right at its foundation. It is the way of liberals!
You need to be aware of this and the intensifying evil spirits at work otherwise, you are in big danger.
The great reset will produce the great eternal regret at the end of the day.
You can attack the truth, but remember, God owns the truth. You are attacking Him. The Bible may bleed for a few seconds, but it will be you who will eventually and eternally!
God owns the truth, and if the truth is in you are owned by Him and are unshakable, safe and secure. The truth is unbreakable and unchangeable. It will break those who try to break it, it always does.
The political mayhem is one side of the present day troubles. The mutating virus is the other. Both are changing the very face of the world right before us.
On top of the socio-political upheavals on the go, the virus is mutating and spreading faster than before. These things are all causing great stress in the world.
►Will things return to normal? Absolutely not! A vaccine is not a substitute for repentance. You can’t take a pill or get a vaccination to remove the results of the disease of sin! (I am in no way coming against those who take the vaccine. I’m talking generally)
Will God accept a vaccination instead of repentance?
Things can only return to normal if we are far from the whole end-time train rolling in. We are not far, but very close to the whole picture unfolding.
Why is God calling loudly for repentance now through so many of His voices? It is because time is running out fast and He wants people as holy as possible, ready for heaven at the rapture. He is also preparing Israel for a sudden return to holiness, so that they can be effective witnesses and evangelists in the tribulation period.
It’s also because the world’s wickedness has gone into overdrive and is speeding up. It’s because of where we are on the grand prophetic calendar.
(By the way, I have some incredible revelation of some familiar verses on the rapture and Israel, which I will share soon. It will destroy some deeply held, but incorrect views.)
Don’t you think it’s interesting that the church has failed in her commission to the Jew, while the Jew in the tribulation will be very successful in taking the gospel to the Gentile!
The big reason for the rapture is not the great escape, although that is quite true. It is to bring in the last Gentile and then see the veil removed as the gospel goes to the Jew.
Matthew 23:37-38 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often have I want to gather your children together like a hen gathers her chicks under her wings. But you were not willing! See your house is left to you desolate.”
When Bible prophecy is on the march, what a terrible thing to be left behind and right out of it, with no idea of its existence and relevance!
►1 Thessalonians 5:20 “Do not despise prophesies.”
The word “despise” is Strong’s G1848 ‘Exoutheneo.’ Meanings: Despise, set at nought, make contemptible, not to be esteemed.
This verse above means you had better wake up fast to Bible prophecy, even if your parrot behind the pulpit won’t touch prophecy.
Most importantly, it also means that presumptuous, always-wrong prophecy teachers and watchmen are the very ones causing prophecy to be “set at nought” and “made contemptible, not to be esteemed”
False watchmen are prophecy killers and faith killers!
Proverbs 12:19 “The truthful lip shall be established forever, but a lying tongue is but for a moment.”
For your edification:
You need to be spiritually strong in these days. You must be clearly defined in who you are spiritually and in all areas of your life.
We have as part of the church the happy clappies and hands up church (me included) and the no-happy, no-clappies, hands down, boring, dead, denominational non-spirit filled crowd, with no insight except that of the world.
Even if you are not in a local church you need to be demonstrative in your walk with our Lord. Once you are Spirit filed, even in your home alone, raise your hands in prayer and clap your hands, and if your dog bites you, serves you right for hiding your spirituality.
Edition 266. July 1st 2015
Prophecy from above, prophecy from below:
Prophecy from above, prophecy from below:
►This is a very important edition!
James 3:15-17 (Amp) “This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual sensual, demonic.”
I’m using this verse above as our title verses because it lends itself well to the play on words. As there is wisdom from above and wisdom from below, so there is biblical prophecy from above and “prophecy” from below, or the world and its god Satan.
Bible prophecy has numerous unique aspects to it, including its plot of world history, the people of God and the unsaved world.
We can trust it and rely on it.
The world and its fallen masses also have “prophecies” that at the end of the day, amount to wishful thinking. They contradict the prophecies of the Bible totally.
The world follows their gods blindly and they hear its voices clearly. We as believers follow our God knowingly and wisely and we know His voice.
Prophecy from above:
Psalm 119:140 “Your word is very pure, therefore Your servant loves it.”
Proverbs 30:5 “Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him.”
Psalm 12:6-7 “The words of the Lord are pure words, like silver tried in a furnace of the earth, purified seven times. You shall keep them O Lord; You shall preserve them from this generation forever.”
Psalm 18:30 “As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.”
Prophecy from above (of the Bible) is unique in a number of ways. ●It has a 100% fulfilment record. ●It is only Bible prophecy that plots the entire course of world history from beginning to end. ●It is only Bible prophecy that predicts the entire miraculous journey of the Jews to their final salvation. Included are hundreds of prophecies on the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem. ●It is only Bible prophecy that speaks of you personally and your eternal destination. ●Bible prophecy is of great value and is most precious.
Isaiah 46:9-10 “Remember the former things of old, for I am God and there is no other; I am God and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure.”
Prophecy from below -or the world:
The “prophecies” of the world are the great big belief systems that the unsaved world universally adheres to.
They are all the wishful hopes and promises that they make to each other. They are all the results of academic thinking and enterprise to make the world a better place.
These “prophecies” are the promises of the world’s politicians, scientists, inventors, and great thinkers.
The “prophecies” from below obviously fly directly in the face of the prophecies of the word of God. They exclude God. They favour universality and the collective “speak” and morality of the world.
The world’s “prophecies” are inoffensive to the world, accommodating multitudes of opinions and beliefs.
The world’s “prophecies” are impure, full of pure humanism, and the efforts of fallen man. They are the world’s attempt to better themselves, based on democracy, human rights and everything outside of the word of God.
Here are a few examples:
●A world-prophecy is this: You’re okay because you fit in with everyone. Just look at everyone else. They all believe and do the same things therefore you must be okay, because you’re one of the crowd.
●A world prophecy is this: There is no eternal judgement coming. God is love and would never send anyone to hell because that’s not love.
●A world prophecy is this: Because you’re essentially good, with good motivations and you’re essentially loving, giving and caring, you’re okay. If there is a God He will save you based on all your good works. (This is actually the belief of the majority.)
●A world prophecy is this: Because you were infant-sprinkled (baptised) as a little child and go to church every once in a while – you’re okay.
●A world prophecy is this: The world, over time will get better and better, because people are so clever they know how to fix the world.
●A world prophecy is this: The morality of the world is okay because it’s what the majority wants.
And of course there are thousands more.
The biggest failure of democracy – the biggest victory ever!
The greatest failure of democracy ever was the choice given to the masses at the trial of our Lord and Saviour, Yeshua. Pilate asked the people who they wanted released to them. With a universal decision and voice, they all said, “No, not Yeshua, give us Barabbas!” (John 18:40). Then Pilate asked, “What must I do with this innocent man (Yeshua)?” and the whole crowd said – “Crucify him.”
This was perhaps the greatest example of a failed democratic vote. But as we know, it led to the greatest victory ever which was the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and the payment for sin in wonderful salvation.
Public opinion is organised mass delusion. People have succumbed to the devils political propaganda. The collective, common belief is now political correctness. Mass thinking is the result of pure brainwashing.
The reality of the godless is a short-lived futile fantasy. Their freedom is in fact a prison of their own making.
Isaiah 59:14 “...I saw the truth cast down in street.”
Now, let’s return to the court of Pilate.
A Passover custom was to release one prisoner. We know the story. The crowd cried for Barabbas to be released. The name Barabbas in the original (Strong’s G 912) means “Son of the father or master.”
But what very few people know is that the first name of Barabbas, the son of his father, was Jesus!
Barabbas was an imprisoned leader of a rebellion, a thief and murderer. Interestingly, some original manuscripts include his full name, Jesus Barabbas! Tradition claims that his full name was left out of the King James Version (which is full of errors) in honour of the real Jesus. If you want to check this name, click HERE.
But more than this, it is Satan, the ultimate rebel, whom the Bible calls the “thief and the murderer”!
Be thankful though, that it was Barabbas that went free and not our Lord. You see, you don’t even know what your name is. Your name is Barabbas. You are him! If our Lord wasn’t executed, you and I would have no saviour who could save! We are all Barabbas, full of sin, and we go free thanks to the true and innocent Saviour of the world who was accused and crucified in our place.
Yeshua the Son of His Father was an innocent man and stood before Pilate and the world, about to be murdered, while Jesus Barabbas, the murderer, son of his father, Satan, was set free.
Do you see it? Jesus Barabbas is the son of his father the devil. He is one of the great types of the antichrist to come.
It is of great importance to note the difference between the two. On the one hand we have Jesus, the son of his father and on the other we have Jesus, the Son of His Father. The former is a Jesus without a cross!! The latter is a Jesus with a cross.
If we embrace our Messiah with a cross we will be forever separated from the world and its ways. If we embrace the messiah without a cross, we will remain forever joined to, and in unity with the world and its ways awaiting judgement.
One Messiah saves empowers and cleanses the other can’t save, he curses and dooms. One sets truly free, the other imprisons in camouflaged freedom. One gives spiritual insight, knowledge, understanding and wisdom. The other blinds you to God, deludes you and makes you spiritually ignorant. One is pure, holy and righteous; the other leaves you unclean and full of evil.
Jesus Barabbas is exactly what the Bible calls “another Jesus.” Galatians 1:8 “Even if we or an angel from heaven preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you let him be accursed.” (2 Corinthians 11:4)
You can choose Jesus, Son of His Father, King of the Jews, or Jesus Barabbas, king of murderers and rebellion. Be warned, if you do not choose the right king, by default you have already chosen the other.
It wasn’t Pilate who released Barabbas; it was the crowd’s choice. They yelled “give us Barabbas”. The world got what they wanted. The world today is trying desperately to get rid of the true Jesus again, so that they can accept the rebel murderer-messiah again – the one with no values, morals or virtues!
The cry is not only “give us Barabbas” but “crucify the Messiah”. As you chose one you reject and kill the other.
►Here’s a glorious sideline snippet: The original languages of the Bible were alpha-numeric. Each letter has a number value, so you can simply add up the numeric value of a word. In the Bible, numbers have meanings. For example 1=unity, 2=division, 3=trinity, 4=world, 5=grace, 6=man under sin, seven = perfection, 8=resurrection and so on. The number 13 means rebellion.
Do you know that the numeric value for every single enemy of God in the Bible adds up to a multiple of 13? Do you know that every single title and name for our Lord adds up to a multiple of 8 except for one? Yes there is one title for our Lord that adds up to a multiple of 13! It is the title that was nailed to the cross above His head! It was on the cross that He became our sin and rebellion!
The characteristics of Jesus Barabbas:
“Give us Barabbas!” (Painting by James Tissot- 1836)
The soon coming Jesus Barabbas will not set you free. He went free but if you follow the new Barabbas, he will lead you right into hell.
He represents the world’s salvation, which is salvation without a cross. He was full of violence murder and rebellion (terrorism).
In Matthew 27:16 Barabbas is described as “notorious” or “notable”. The world will instantly fall in love with this new notable Jesus, the son of his father. They will be falling headlong for the devil himself in disguise – the antichrist!
He will prophesy peace and safety, love and truth. He will promise world peace and harmony on a grand scale, but he will bring the wrath of God upon himself and all his followers.
Calling for our Lord to be crucified, the crowd said, “Let His blood be upon us and our children and our children’s children.” That tragic self-imposed curse remains on the Jews today. By default, it extends to the whole unsaved world. It came by their own choice!
When you reject the free gift of true love – the salvation of our Lord, you are also saying, “Let His blood be upon us and our children!” You are cursing yourself!
The crowd believed they were doing God a service by getting rid of this Messiah character. Faced with same choice again, what will you do? Will you rush to give yourself to the antichrist? Or will you sit back and wash your hands of the situation? Pre-tribbers need not be concerned!
Don’t do it – you are about to choose Jesus Barabbas again!
The greatest prophecy of the world is that you can save yourself. Yes you can, you can do it. Just get into positive thinking, self motivation. Listen to the world’s disciples preaching nice inoffensive, self-motivational sermons one after the other and you will be fine.
You don’t need that offensive, cruel, cross. You don’t need to take up your own cross, an instrument of death. You don’t need to “hate your life in the world”. Just be happy and you’ll be okay. Just follow the crowd; after all, the crowd is so clever! Jesus has done all the dying, no more dying needed!
The world will soon face a similar tragic situation, and again they will choose Jesus Barabbas – the antichrist! The coming of the antichrist will be accompanied with numerous powerful supernatural signs, which will deceive the masses. (2 Thessalonians 2:9-11)
It’s not so much that they choose the counterfeit but that they hate the true Messiah, the one that condemns homosexuality, abortion and all sin because true love is holy and righteous.
Another of the huge, great big “prophetic” lies of the world is that you can be “as God”. If ever there is anything that appeals to pride this is it.
Genesis 3:4-5 “The serpent said to the woman, you shall not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
The tragedy of this lie is that in going your own way independent of God, your eyes will not be opened! In fact they will be closed and you will not even see that you are on the wrong road, heading to hell. “God will send you strong delusion so that you will believe the lie.” (2 Thessalonians 2:11).
Today the force and power behind collective, universal rejection of God’s word and ways is so very powerful. It is led and spearheaded by Satan’s prime tool, the mass-media. You are in grave danger without the full spiritual compliment of supernatural gifts in these days.
►►Revelation 17:13-14 “These (nations) are of one mind and they will give their power and authority to the beast. These will make war with the Lamb and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is the Lord of lords and the King of kings and those who are with Him are called chosen and faithful.”
How easy it is to make war with a lamb. You can kill it with one shot! But in the verse above we see a great surprise coming. This Lamb, Jesus, the Son of His Father will overcome them all!
But just look at the great universal deception! All the nations willingly give their power and authority to the antichrist!
Do you know how stupid it is to choose the losing side, when you know ahead of time that they are going to lose? Just think about for a while!
Jesus is one of the masks that Satan, the great deceiver wears!
The tragic “prophecy” of the homosexual world:
Homosexuals believe their “prophecy” that they’re okay and will not be judged. After all, Christians keep telling them that God loves them.
The universal flag of the homosexual is called the rainbow flag because it displays the colours of the rainbow. The rainbow first appeared after the judgement of God on the evils of the then world which included rampant homosexuality.
The rainbow is the promise of God that He will never judge the whole world again with water. That does not mean He will not judge the world again! The rainbow IS a sign and proof of judgement! The rainbow says “God judges sin.”
The world’s homosexuals are flying the flag which proclaims their own judgement.
By the way they recently changed their flag to include only six colours instead of seven. But they still call it the rainbow flag. Six, is that fateful number of man under sin.
The LGBT flag has six colours with indigo being removed. Some have remarked that INDIGO also spells “GOD IN I”.
And another thing: A central key tenant of the homosexual movement is pride. Do you know that the first sin of the universe long before the creation of the world was pride? Do you know that the second sin of the universe was pride? The former was at the fall of Lucifer, and the latter at the fall of Adam! Do you know that God hates pride? (Proverbs 6:16).
And they think they’re all going to be okay because the Christians tell them God loves them!
By the way, Christian; why single out homosexuals and tell them God loves them but hates their sin. What about the heterosexual? Do you see your problem? You are you showing particular partiality to one group.
To tell someone that God loves them when discipline and correction is needed is to participate in damning that person’s soul.
The world has a religion:
Because the world system has a god it has a religion. (2 Corinthians 4:4)
The world’s religion has no cross of sacrifice for sins. It is forever trapped in its sin and unable to get out – ever. The world’s religion includes a mix of all religions including the Christian religion. If you have not realised it yet, true Biblical Christianity is not a religion, but a relationship which you can only be born into through blood, faith and grace. All religions are based on law and works.
The very essence of the world’s religions is “You can do it.” They operate in the power of self-effort. Their objectives are worldly and material. They’re riddled with demonic spirits.
The world’s Christian religion believes in and loves Jesus but denies the Father / Son relationship and that Yeshua is God. This is the spirit of antichrist. The spirit of antichrist arises in direct association with the church.
Love is the big thing in the world’s Christian church, but it is counterfeit love. It is love that doesn’t interfere with their lifestyles. It is love that costs nothing. It is love with no Spirit, no judgement, no correction or discipline, no power, no cleansing of the cross.
Their love is all encompassing and accommodating. It is not the love of God as described in the Bible. The Bible describes this worldly form of love as “hatred”. (Look it up.)
It is not love that will make you right with God or save you, but love of the truth and the application of it that will save you and secure you in Him in these days.
One of the world’s major central “prophecies” is that peace will come to the Middle East and the world, once Israel and Jerusalem are divided. We know very well that Islam does not want a divided Israel. They want all of it, with the Jews destroyed.
Jeremiah 30:3-5 “’Behold, the days are coming’, says the Lord that I will bring back My people, Israel and Judah, and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers...We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear and not of peace...”
As revealed in the verse above and many others, our Lord will bring back the Jews to their land and it will not be in peace. It will be in enormous conflict and war.
The true prophecies of the Bible show that peace will come to the Middle East when the Prince of peace returns to an undivided Israel and Jerusalem, with Islam annihilated.
The big take-aways:
The big take-away is that all the “prophecies” of the world will fail – every one of them!
All the prophecies of the Bible will come to pass – every one of them!
The big take-away from this edition is the fact that the world’s prophecies of love and peace are lies. They’re a smokescreen to hide Satan and his demons from you.
The big take-away is that any form of religion without the centrality of the cross is a dangerous counterfeit and is about to rise in new spiritual power and strength...that of the devil himself.
Bible prophecy is the anchor of your soul. It is unique, pure, tested and true. It continues to be fulfilled completely accurately. Do you want to gamble against those odds?
The prophecies of the Bible are true, holy, pure and right.
I took this picture from the side of a mountain looking over the Savuti Channel, between the Okavango and Chobe in big game country, Botswana. Shortly after this, the river disappeared never to appear again. It was due to seismic activity.
