|This website comprises the Abrahamic Expression of faith, which goes to the Jew and the Gentile, with a Messianic slant. I affirm the fullness of biblical truth, embracing the cross of Calvary. I reject Babylonian paganism in the church and the legalistic excesses of the Messianic Movement. This ministry has a distinct kingdom vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for the Jewish people. My position is pre-trib! Personally: I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My interest in Bible prophecy was instant. My calling came soon afterwards. It is to share this great drama, to stand watching and to glorify my God.|

●Gaza is again erupting in conflict with Israel. More than 370 rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel. Most were intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome defence system, but some got through. The IDF has just hit 150 terror targets in Gaza. A ceasefire of sorts has just been reached, but generally don't last!
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.
Edition 278: September 23rd 2015
Signs of your salvation:
Signs of your salvation:
►Please don’t miss next week’s edition which will be entitled: “What now, what’s next?” It is very important prophetically.
In this day many of the fruits of the world system are a growing rotten stench. The fruits and signs of your salvation must be related in contraposition to the present world.
You must have a position on the major issues of the day. Your position must reflect the biblical position and if the issue is not in the Bible, God speaks by His Spirit on everything, including all the issues of the day.
There are many signs and fruits in the believer’s life that are universal and timeless, but there are some that are unique to this time period.
These are the things I’ll be addressing in this edition.
The big signs and fruits:
As the coming of our Lord draws ever nearer, we need to repent! Repentance is obviously one of those universal, timeless things, but it is urgent now. We must ask our Lord to shine His light onto and into every aspect of our lives so that we can see what we need to repent of.
What is sin and what is not is the question. Don’t come up with your own ideas - let our Lord show you. You will be surprised at just how many things you need to change.
You have less than 12 months.
As the world draws nearer to its god, Satan, the signs and fruits are intensifying all around us. What was once unheard of is today acceptable. The unclean stench of Satan has rubbed off into the church, causing many to be swept away, even though they think they are plain-sailing with God!
No you can’t:
If you think you can run your life in these days – no you can’t. Yes you can say things like you believe in God, and yes you can do churchy things and be religious. You must not only believe in our Lord Yeshua, but you must believe everything He has said about you and the world. Only as you embrace the cross in your life, can you see what you really need to do.
Today the hearts of most believers are overrun with a forest of weeds of the world. The great errors of the ways of the world are mistaken for truth, because people are far from God even though they say they believe in God.
It’s easy to compromise and that will take the pressure off. You will then see clearly just what the world wants you to see and the things of God will become misty and clouded.
The depths of experience in Messiah are our goal and really, if you think about it, it’s not that difficult because everything around us is so shallow.
But you can’t go deep with God with self intact. Our Lord must kill you with His cross and you must then take up your own cross, putting self to death as you go. Only with self conquered can you enter the secret presence of our Lord and see things His way.
Most Christians today look at the Light and see nothing, so they manufacture their experiences. Brain-power is their source and their own thoughts are what they think is the leading of the Spirit.
The Bible puts many things the other way around! The world says, “Exalt yourself”. The word says, “If you exalt yourself you will be humbled and brought down!” The word says “Humble yourself in His sight and He will lift you up.”
At this time God’s watchmen have been speaking and blowing the trumpet of warning. Many are listening and preparing themselves. Many others are blind and deaf to God. Others have become directly hostile to the watchmen.
I will label these people as sceptics and scoffers. They repeatedly delight in trying to prove God’s watchmen wrong, but at the same time, they are interfering with the message of repentance and soon-coming judgment.
Be very careful when you accept the criticism of those who have a spirit of criticism working in them. Also please be careful of those who criticise and condemn all those who bring an unpopular or hard message in these days.
The essential message of the sceptics and scoffers (although they won’t admit it) is - don’t repent and don’t bother about getting ready because everything will carry on as normal!
I heard one of these seminary-educated scoffers say recently that these messages of warning must be rejected because they are not “love” and make the congregation uncomfortable and filled with worry!
You sceptics and scoffers interfering with the message of repentance – you have blood on your hands. You are no better than a murderer. (Ezekiel 33:6)
It is the word of the true watchmen of the Lord that will endure and bear fruit, the fruit of repentance, and the word of sceptic and scoffer that will fizzle and come to nothing except God’s judgment.
In the next edition, I will show you just how right God’s watchmen are – you will be shocked and amazed!
My friends let me say it again. The central message right now from the prophets and watchmen is repent.
Oh, you will repent! Yes, everyone will bow the knee to our Lord in repentance. But for all the unsaved, that will be too late. You will bow the knee in useless repentance on your journey to hell, where you will be forced to bow your knee to Satan your revealed, eternal god.
Today there is a huge weight of false teaching under the guise of truth leading you away from repentance and getting ready for our Lord. Of course I’m not suggesting that that is the only message, but it is little heard these days, and it is these days where it is needed the most.
The message of Yom Kippur:
Yom Kippur, also called the Day of Atonement is upon us. This closes the “Days of Awe” which began on the Feast of Trumpets. It is the most solemn of the seven feasts.
This feast originated in the cry of repentance for the idolatry of the worship of the golden calf. The feast is also called, The Day of Atonement, representing the atonement for the sin of idolatry.
Because the most of the church has replaced the feasts with occult practices, they know little of the message of repentance as contained in Yom Kippur. Is that perhaps why so much of the church is full of idolatry?
Traditionally, the book of Jonah is read on Yom Kippur, because the symbolism speaks of man’s inability to escape the reach of God’s hand. There is also a message in the people of Nineveh being spared judgement as they repented, albeit only for a time.
White is worn on Yom Kippur symbolising purity created by repentance.
Prophetically, many, including myself believe that this feast will mark the beginning of the mass repentance of the Jews as they find forgiveness in their Messiah.
This particular Day of Atonement may just turn out to be the great turning point for the Jews.
This is the time of and for repentance for the Jews, but also for everyone. The unsaved need to get saved fast, and the saved need to repent for all sin in their lives.
The fruits and signs of Satan:
The fruits are all around us and have infiltrated into the lives of many believers through self, the world and the demonic.
We are in the midst of an outpouring of deception. Demons and fallen angels are about to be released like never before creating massive deceptions. They will come as angels of light, as ministers of the gospel and as so-called believers.
Many of the ministers who are not open to the fullness of the Spirit of God in these days will become agents of Satan.
Here is a list of some of the signs and fruits of Satan today:
He appears as God. ●He is the god of pride. ●He is an angel of light. ●He is the king of rebellion. ●He is the accuser of the brethren ●He is a deceiver, imitator and counterfeiter. ● He is the god of human good and evil. ●He is a murderer and oppressor. ●He is a perverter and twister of truth. ●He is the tempter. ●He is the thief. ●He is the despiser of truth and the destroyer of doctrine. ●He is the king of lusts.
The terrible god – self:
Self is a terrible god. It always guides you with its demons to the world and its ways. It makes you acceptable and comfortable to and in the world.
Self says, “Me, me, me”, where the crucified self says, “you, you, you”! Self says, “Give me.” The crucified self says, “May I give to you”. Self demands while the crucified self yields.
We as true believers have been saved through the suffering and shed blood of our Lord and Saviour. We have been given the free gift of salvation and all that it entails. We have been given the power to be holy and right with God.
All unbelievers will go through their “cross” shortly. It will be the blood-shed and suffering of the tribulation period and wrath of God. It will not save them. It will not empower them to walk free and in holiness. It will destroy them on their way to eternal destruction.
The glorious Millennium will be the reward of the millions who got saved in the tribulation, while hell will be the reward of those who didn’t.
The Bible says, “As a man thinks in his heart so is he.” Stop for a moment and think about whom you are and what you have become. Stop and think about your own transformation. Don’t compare yourself with your friends or the world or even the church. Compare yourself with the purity of God’s word. Are you battling to move forward with our great King and Saviour now? That’s fine. It’s good to battle, but you must make headway.
It’s not fine to go with the flow! What is your life? What consumes your thoughts?
When you set your heart to know our Lord you will begin to bask in His presence. That silences you. No prayer, no words are needed, just an awareness of the closeness of God.
The crucified self:
Imagine getting to the end of your life, being delivered into eternity and you suddenly see everything with utmost clarity. You see what a terrible god, self was, and that you have blindly served this god all your life. At the same time you see that God Himself was ready all along to place Himself in you, re-create you and make you the most incredible creation, fit for the King forever!
After the new-birth, baptism in water and in the Spirit, the believer is now empowered to take up his own cross and deny himself. The Spirit of God in you will always lead you towards the kingdom of God and the goodness of heaven. Angles are your friends and helpers.
So, self leads you into the world with the help of demons, and the crucified self leads you towards heaven with the help of angels. Both have fruits that are evident.
If you really have encountered the living God in salvation and are building your life under His leadership, you will soon become filled with desire and a deep yearning to be holy, clean, right with God in heart and doctrine. You will soon become filled with a fire that will consume the rubbish in your life, purify you and fill you with this strange new delightful fruitfulness. You will be filled with a desire to be with our Lord.
When our Lord is at work the battle becomes easier. Our thoughts become filled with His thoughts. They become a clean sanctuary, while the scum of the world gets worse and worse all around us.
Repentance leads to a clean sin-slate. Draw near to the Lord. Tell Him your deepest fears, desires and wishes. Tell Him you are now embracing Him as never before and never to let go. Separate yourself from those who pull you back.
Repentance is a humbling thing. It means you were wrong or did wrong. It is the great “I’m sorry” and now I’m going in a new direction. It is the way to peace with God and personal stability.
The lack of a walk of repentance means that you think you are fine. You think you are perfect. – You big fool!
The force of two raptures:
You will go forcibly in one of two raptures. You will be snatched by force out of the hands of the devil’s world or you will be sent by force to hell.
In both of these raptures, supernatural force will be evident. You will not be able to resist either. Of course believers won’t want to resist the force of their rapture, but unbelievers at the Second Coming will wish they could resist the force that will clean this earth of all unbelievers and their evil.
All unbelievers are eternally trapped in their sins. They have rejected the cross of Calvary, the one and only, magnificent, cruel sin-removing instrument ever. They can try to be good, but even their good is bad. It is unacceptable to God.
Do you recall, that way back in the Garden, Satan said to Adam, “If you do things my way, you will be as God knowing both good and evil.” Did that work? Of course it didn’t. That is the origin of humanism.
These two raptures will result in eternal judgement. One will be for reward and the other for horrific punishment. God will not judge you fairly. It will be fair from His point of view and not the way you think you should be judged. There will be no democratic vote.
It never ceases to amaze me how many people think they are fine because they are more good than bad. It never ceases to amaze me that most people think there is salvation outside of the cross.
Let’s have a look now at a few typical people in the church and their fruits:
Please meet the people:
Nicky Nikolaitan: Poor Nicky! He wants to control everyone. He elevates himself above others in his dress and appearance, thinking that this is the way to respect and the way to God’s favour. Jessie Jezebel is the wife of many ministers in the church. Jessie is a controller. She wants to put out the light of the Spirit. She wants to kill the work of God in her husband. She wants to destroy God’s kingdom. She is a fraud and is seated comfortably in many churches.
Lizzy Lezzie is a growing “force”. She is filled with extreme lust. In fact she has been given over to spirits of lust. She hates the word of God. Her friend Freddie Fagot, just like Lizzie, has been given over to powerful demon forces of lust. He doesn’t know where to draw the line. He gets so frustrated with life and tries to repent, but finds no place for it. He is a suicide candidate.
Gary Godly is a true saint! He has followed the Lord for many years. The world thinks he is boring. But he is a superstar in God’s book. In fact God will use Gary as a foundation in his eternal temple. Bernie Burntout was really going for it. He went overboard on everything. But because he didn’t work on his roots, he burnt-out and backslid. Now he is a worldly wise, desperately unhappy individual. Remember though that God loves the backslider. He will come back.
Winnie Witch is a popular girl. No one knows she is a witch. Her friends just think she is a great fortune teller and spiritualist. She resents judgment on anything or discipline and correction. She loves to rule the roost and dominate. She is sitting in every church.
Harry Holy is one of God’s favourites. He is unseen at the moment. No one knows much about him because he is simply waiting in the wings. His time is almost here. God will use him mightily.
We could talk of some of the others in the church, but because of space we’ll just name them. They are: Flossie Fleshly, Susan Stupid, Carol Careless, Beryl Bitch, Wally Wantmore, Woody Works, Debbie Demon and Les Legal.
I’m sure you recognise at least some these people in the church. The amazing thing is that the power of the resurrection can and does transform all types into believers who are just right. And then there are many who never change!
You have been called to transformation. You have been called to go through a metamorphosis just like a beautiful butterfly that starts off as a worm. Everyone’s calling is different, but everyone’s calling has certain aspects that are just the same, and metamorphosis is one of them.
Some Christians will never be transformed. They are too deeply set in their ways. Others can’t because they have already been handed over to delusions and given up to exchange the truth for a lie.” (Romans 1:24-26)
How can you repent when you believe you are right and God is wrong? How can you repent when both Satan and God have blinded and deluded you? (2 Corinthians 2:11, 2 Corinthians 4:4)
We are on the verge of an outpouring of evil and sin like never before. But shortly afterwards there will be a release of holiness and purity in the Millennium like never before. Are you right with our Lord? Are you right with His word? Or are you right with the word of the world and the intensifying evil and sin?
I know someone who has been saved since the 1970’s and she supports the LGBT agenda! Obviously it’s not even sin to her! To get her on the path of repentance she must first know that it is sin. Only then can you start the walk of repentance. How can you repent over something you think is a basic human right and is just fine?
The world’s agenda, group speak, package of morality, virtues and values is nothing but the manifestation of Satan today. A lack of restraint in behaviour does not produce joy and peace but stress, judgement and destruction.
May I inform you that our Lord has never been wrong on anything – ever! His 100% perfection and all the fruits of it are all available to you. Don’t reject Him and His fruits.
Today we are in a world characterised by the casting down of the word of God (Isaiah 54:19). The truth of God has been exchanged for a lie, as self seekers reject God’s absolutes. The council of the evil, ungodly, the scoffers, sceptics and scorners is being exalted.
Wrath is coming soon to this world as a result. Many will fall in repentance. In fact the good news is that many are falling in repentance right now before the wrath even comes thundering in.
Do yourself the biggest favour you ever could – reject the wilful king and His word and delight yourself in the word of the living God.
I took this picture of this spectacular enormous 3000-year old Baobab tree named the Sagole giant after a torturous 4x4 drive to get there. It has a circumference of 40 metres!
