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

- Military threats escalate along Israel’s borders.
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
This verse, below was given to me by our Lord in December last year to give to you as the crowning verse for 2020. This was just before the corona-virus became a world pandemic:
The heading is, “Babylon humiliated.” End-time Babylon is the modern world system:
Isaiah 47:10-11 “You have trusted in your wickedness. You have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you; You have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one besides me.’ Therefore evil shall come upon you and you shall not know from where it arises, and trouble shall fall upon you. You will not be able to put it off, and desolation shall come upon you suddenly.”
Romans 14:11 “For it is written, as I live says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me and every tongue shall confess to God.”
Psalm 86:9 “All nations who you have made, shall come and worship before you, O lord and glorify Your name.”
Psalm 72:11 “Yes, all kings shall fall down before Him, all nations shall serve Him.”
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose of this report is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah.
31st July 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Transforming light, life and power:
How do you know that you are solidly in the Lord’s kingdom, saved and growing in Him? What is you measure of salvation and victory?
It really is all about your transformation and it’s working from inside your heart to the outside. Do you have a growing love for holiness or do you still secretly love evil?
So much in the world is falling apart and creating a nightmare of stress and strain.
Growth in the Lord encompasses standing securely, in victory, in times of troubled waters.
A deathly, dark, demonic deception has descended upon the world, painting its beauty with an unholy ugliness.
The raging nights are thick with sick! Even the stars seem sterile and twinkle-less, hiding behind wafts of mysterious mist as we await the great twinkling-eye signal in the clouds.
This is actually the calm before the storm, the storm before the eternal calm. Yes the storm is calm compared to what’s coming and very soon. In fact comparatively, the world is now a teddy bears’ pick nick – a Mickey Mouse party.
Sounds of sirens reverberate, but are gutted and defunded. Their terror has been stolen from them by the terror of insurrection, revolt, mutiny and anarchy.
Romans 13:3 Rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authorities? Do what is good and you will have praise from them...But if you do evil, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain, for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practises evil.”
The cops are to be a terror to evildoers. If not the terrible reversal takes place and the evildoers become the terror to the cops and all civilised society!
The incidents of insurrection are growing, worldwide. The numbers are growing too. Historically, God acts when many people are affected and influenced by an evil work.
There is no safety in the numbers of rebels. There is only real safety in truth, holiness and righteousness.
Like our Lord in hell as a victor, before His resurrection, so we await our resurrection in a world turned to hell on earth.
Why is the champion of love, the God of all grace and mercy hated so much these days?
There is “another Jesus” who is not hated by the world. He has no cross and no Spirit! (2 Corinthians 11:4)
John 7:7 “The world hates Me because I testify that its works are evil.”
John 15:18 “If the world hates you, know that it hated Me before it hated you.”
Psalm 97:10-11 “You who love the Lord, hate evil! He preserves the soul of His saints; He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked. Light is sown for the righteous...”
The modern materialistically orientated church teaches you to “find your life in the world.” (Luke 17:33) They teach you to accept all the things that Satan offered our Lord, and he rejected.
►But, there is great safety in and amongst the ministers of the gospel that are close to our Lord. Those who know Him well, and walk with Him are safe and secure. Their light shines in the dark.
As the world prepares for its new world ruler, soon to emerge, know that there are many that you cannot trust anymore. Politicians, billionaires, businessmen, medical men, media, scientific experts and many worldly religious leaders are all tools of the devil in these days.
The one thing you absolutely cannot do at all these days is trust the media. They are driven by a demon monkey on their backs.
The materialistic orientated churches and all the Spirit-less churches are mostly devoid of any end-time understanding. For that reason alone, you need to be careful of them. It’s also no coincidence that they avoid anything on Israel, and even come against God’s plans for Israel.
►Love for the world of necessity means rejection of Israel! The reason is because Israel is God’s chosen “weapon” to destroy the world.” People may not know that, but spirits do!
God’s light must shine by His Spirit to offer real insight into all things related to Israel.
There are tragic effects of coming against Israel: You will be blinded to the truth, made deaf, have your heart hardened, receive a voice of confusion, and be distressed. You will have your neck under God’s knee and laughed at and scoffed at by God and be broken by Him. (There are verses for all of those things)
It’s no good just having a collection of verses in front of you. You need the light of God to receive His sight and insight, especially today. This is the way of godly metamorphosis.
Only the resurrection power of God through the work of the cross produces godly light and sight which is revelatory and transforming. There is a deceptive light as well, born in pride. Dark light is emitted from the absence of the cross and the Spirit of God.
Lucifer means “light bringer” but his light is dark light. Dark light blinds. “Be careful that the light in you is not darkness.” (Luke 11:35)
Job 18:5 “The light of the wicked indeed goes out, and the flame of his fire does not shine.”
John 9:4 “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.”
1 Corinthians 2:7 “We speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory.”
Things today are headed for a climax. Can you see it?
The end of the new world order is a world built and formed by Satan and with the fruits of Satan: Killing, stealing, destroying and lying. The end of God’s new world – the Millennium is a world built on righteousness, peace, holiness and all things glorious.
►If the world is going to simply recover from the pandemic, which many are hoping for and even some Christians are praying for, and the riots will just go away, and the locust plagues will just disappear, and everyone can get back to their normal life of murdering the unborn, homosexuality and other sin, then that would obviously mean that the rapture / tribulation start is a long way off.
That would mean that “All things are going to continue as they have done.” (2 Peter 3:4)
No, world, your day is done, your cake is cooked, your song is sung!
Jeremiah 50:23 “How the hammer of the whole earth (Babylon / end time world) has been cut apart and broken! How Babylon has become a desolation among the nations!”
You have nothing to lose by surrendering to our Lord now, and everything to gain – for all glorious eternity!
Edition 292: December 30th 2015.
Are you really saved?
Are you really saved?
As we head into a new year full of enormous troubles on almost every front, we will see the beginning of a “great shaking” worldwide. (See next edition for more on this.)
Many will have their very foundations shaken and many will come, as it is said, as “Multitudes in the valley of decision.”
Many will come looking for salvation and many will come wanting to kill those who are saved. The stirring amongst the Jews is going to escalate and dramatically increase.
You need to be secure in your salvation and foundation. You need to be strong in the Lord for your own sake and for the sake of helping others.
This is not about doubting your salvation, but really about securing your salvation so that you can move forward with our Lord in strong confidence.
It’s about removing doubt and it’s about growing strong. It’s about destroying the works of the devil.
It’s about knowing exactly what God has to say on these critical, vital issues and applying them. It’s also about rejecting the garbage taught by many churches and ministers these days.
In fact many people in these days have no idea what salvation actually is and what its powerful implications are.
What salvation is and is not:
Right up front let’s define our terms exactly, so that there is no ambiguity or misunderstanding. Please don’t take any of these things lightly, you only get one life! Once you have stepped over into eternity, that’s it. You can’t go back and do it again!
Salvation is not believing in Yeshua. It is to believe in Him as well as acting upon His instruction to be born again and then to follow Him. Here it is from the Bible:
Romans 10:9-10 “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Yeshua, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved, for with the heart one believes to righteousness and with the mouth confession is made to salvation.”
Romans 1:16 “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Messiah, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also for the Greek (Gentile.)”
Romans 3:20 “By the deeds (works) of the law shall no flesh be justified in His sight.”
Romans 6:23 “The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Yeshua our Lord.”
Acts 4:12 “There is no salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven, by which we must be saved.”
Acts 2:21 “Whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
1 Peter 1:23 “Having being born-again not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever.”
2 Peter 3:9 “...The Lord is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”
2 Timothy 1:9 “Our Lord has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace...”
Matthew 7:13-14 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction and there are many who go in by it, because narrow is the gate and confined is the way which leads to life and there are few who find it.”
2 Corinthians 5:17 “If anyone is in Messiah he is a new creation; old things have passed away; and behold all things have become new.”
John 3:3 “Unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
John 3:36 “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
John 8:23-24 “You are from beneath, I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins forif you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.”
John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
1 John 5:12 “He who has the Son has life; He who does not have the Son of God does not have life.”
Titus 2:11 “The grace of God that brings salvation, has appeared to all men.”
Hebrews 7:25 “He is able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him...”
1 Corinthians 3:11 “For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Yeshuah the Messiah.”
John 3:36 “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and He who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” (Just after John 3:16)
In summary, note the key words from the verses above:
●One is saved at a specific point in time by believing in Yeshua, confessing with your mouth that He was raised from the dead and that He is God. ●It is not by any works of law or good deeds or any such thing. ●It is a free gift of God for the lost sinner. ●There is no salvation in any other person, god or name or thing. ●No one comes to the Father but by the Son. Salvation is exclusive. ●The word of God is the life-seed of our salvation. ●You can’t dismiss the veracity, use and application of the Bible once you are saved. ●There are few you will be saved. ●Our salvation is holy. ●If you are not saved, you can’t even see the kingdom of God. ●Everlasting wrath abides on those not saved. ●Salvation is always to the Jew first and then the Gentile.
This encapsulates the foundation and beginning process. This is what salvation is. We have been planned, born and called for His great purposes from before the foundation of the earth and we’re heading for eternal majesty and glory.
Adult water baptism:
After salvation through the new birth comes adult water baptism and Spirit baptism. If you do these things sincerely by faith your salvation will be secure.
Note that I am not referring to infant sprinkling, which is a demon-originated tradition. The very word “baptism” tells the story. Baptism means full immersion and comes from the burial ritual in which a dead person is totally immersed in the ground and not sprinkled with dirt.
It is only for adults, because choice is required. You must choose it after salvation. If you do not, your salvation will always be incomplete and insecure.
Baptism puts you out of reach by the church as an institution or organisation. Baptism immerses you into the kingdom of God and not some business-like institution, with desires to control you their way. This is why it is a hated practise by many churches. In fact, some will excommunicate you if you have been adult water baptised!
Baptism is a sign to the people standing around watching and to the entire spirit world that you are now a kingdom child and you have died to the kingdom of the world.
Mark 16:16 “Whoever believes and is baptised will be saved...”
Acts 10:47 “Can anyone forbid water that these should not be baptised who have received the Holy Spirit just like we have?”
John 3:5 “Yeshua answered, ‘truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.’”
Romans 6:4 “We were buried with Him by baptism into death, in order that just as Yeshua was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.”
Galatians 3:27, Colossians 2:12, Acts 8:38, Acts 2:41
These verses above will rock the boats of many traditional churches.
Baptism in Spirit:
Baptism in the Spirit is similar. It is an immersion into the fullness of the Spirit with numerous evidences making you a kingdom child in a very real way, even with a kingdom language that no one on earth can understand.
Baptism in the Spirit is all about faith. It comes about in faith, operates through faith and has many powerful evidences and results, some of which we will only discover in eternity.
Here are some of the many verses:
Hebrews 6:1-2 “...The foundation towards perfection is repentance from dead works, faith towards God, the doctrine of baptisms (plural), of laying on of hands (for use of the gifts), of resurrection from the dead and of eternal judgement.”
Acts 19:5-6 “When they heard this they were baptised in the name of Yeshua, and when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied.”
Acts 2:18 “...In those days I will pour out My Spirit and they shall prophecy.”
1 Corinthians 1:7 “Pray that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for the revealing of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.” (The gifts are in operation until the coming of the Lord.)
Acts 2:4 “They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.”
John 14:16-17 “I will pray the Father and He will give you another Helper and He may abide with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive.”
1 Corinthians 14:4 “He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophecies edifies the church.”
The new birth, water baptism and Spirit baptism all come by choice. That may seem obvious, but thanks to the anti-Semite John Calvin, one of the so-called reformers, he invented a doctrine which goes by the acronym, TULIP. The bottom line is that his doctrine claims that man does not have free choice.
There are millions of deceived Calvinists out there believing that God even decides the eternal destiny of everyone.
It is widespread, but thankfully is a fast declining erroneous doctrine in all its forms.
Now let’s see what the Bible says on free choice:
Deuteronomy 30:19 “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.”
Proverbs 1:28-29 “Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; they will seek Me diligently, but will not find Me, because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord.”
Joshua 24:15 “If it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served or the gods of the Amorites. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
Judges 10:13-14 “You have forsaken Me and served other gods, Therefore I will deliver you no more. Go and cry out to the gods which you have chosen; let them deliver you in your time of distress.”
Once saved always saved and the loss of salvation:
This is a controversial doctrine, but if we go straight to the scriptures without any fancy interpretation and just let them speak, it will lead us into truth.
John 10:28 “I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.”
Romans 8:38-39 “I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels, nor principalities nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in our Messiah, Yeshua the Lord.”
These two verses above seem to fully support the once saved always saved belief. Let me add here that I believe in eternal security in all cases but one. I do not believe that the backslider has lost his salvation.
The one single thing that causes a person to lose salvation is not addressed in those two verses above. It is you the individual. If you decide through your choice to reject and eject the Holy Spirit and your salvation – you are forever lost and will never get your salvation back again.
Hebrews 6:4-6 “It is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame.”
1 Corinthians 3:16 “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone destroys this temple of God, God will destroy him, which temple you are.”
1 Corinthians 15:1-2 “I declare the gospel which I preached, which you also received ,in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.”
2 Peter 2:20-21 “If after they have escaped the pollutions of the world, the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Yeshua the Messiah, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end for them is worse than the beginning, for it would have better for them not to have know the way of righteousness, than having known it and turned from it.”
There are a few references in the Revelation to being removed from the Lamb’s book of life. Here is one of them:
Revelation 3:5 “He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.”
Do you know that all but two of the warnings about hell from our Lord were given to believers?
Testing your salvation:
Remember that it only the Bible that really is cast in stone in whichever shape or form it comes. You can safely put all your trust in all of it!
There are many methods to test your own salvation. I strongly suggest you seriously examine yourself and measure yourself against the scriptures.
You can’t put your hand up in a church service and respond to an altar call, go out and say you are saved. That may well be the case, but there will be and must be evidences and changes down the line. After all, the real spirit-you has died and been born again. “A tree is known by its fruit.”
If you were sincere at and about your conversion, something mysterious will happen. Something wonderful happens in your heart and soul.
Romans 8:16 “The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God.”
This verse above is so incredible isn’t it? No religion, no set of laws and works or any such thing can do this. In fact the verse above is a clear reason why true Christians are hated by the world and so much of the religious world. As believers, we are now suddenly in a new invisible family of God!
1 John 5:4 “For whoever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world – our faith.”
The verse above is one of many describing a powerful evidence of true salvation. This overcoming of the world and its influences doesn’t happen overnight. It takes a long time and involves the renewing and exchanging of our minds and thought life for His.
The Bible says that we are to examine ourselves to see if we are in the faith (2 Corinthians 13:5). It says that we are to judge ourselves according to the standard of the Word, so that we will not be judged. (1 Corinthians 11:31).
The secret key to the Christian life lies in moving forever forward, getting to know our Lord deeply, personally and intimately. This wonderful knowledge comes only by revelation and has little to do with words concepts letters on a page and legalism of any and all forms.
It comes by surrendering every aspect of life to Him. It only comes by the application of the cross in our lives as we “die daily and follow Him”.
It produces in you safety, security, strength, purpose, meaning, endurance, victory, courage, restraint and the anger of God –at and for the right circumstances.
Being a spirit led and informed believer makes you wise. Wiser than any man made institution can make you! Is this happening with you? Are you starting to see with new eyes?
Going the right way:
Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
You can only really go the right way with our Lord by revelation. We must have His light, His word and His will guiding us.
One of the great tragedies of the age is that many will go the wrong way! They will go back to Egypt (the world.) They will backslide and many will abandon their faith altogether. These people will have certain similar characteristics. They will have no fear of the Lord and no deep knowledge of Him and far too much pride!
Jeremiah 3:17 “Have you not brought this on yourself in that you have forsaken the Lord your God when He led you in the way? And now why take the road to Egypt...your own wickedness will correct you, and your backsliding will reprove you...and the fear of Me is not in you.”
John 15:2 “Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
John 15”6 “If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire and they are burned.”
Psalm 36:9-12 “In your light we see light. Oh continue your loving-kindness to those who know you and your righteousness to the upright in heart. Let not the foot of pride come against me and let not the hand of wicked drive me away. There the workers of iniquity have fallen; they have been cast down and are unable to rise.”
This is a critical time. We are seeing an intensity of attacks from the devil, his demons, the unsaved world, political leaders, religious leaders, many church denominations, families, the workplace and just about everywhere that there are human beings!
These things are not going to get better. The Bible plots the course of the fallen world exactly. It is only the kingdom of God which is going to get better, brighter and stronger. But it will be a small component of the whole!
I took this picture in the beautiful Namaqualand.
Shalom and grow in grace!
