Amos 9:15 “I will plant them (Israel) in their land, and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord God.”
Isaiah 41:11 “Behold all those who were incensed against you (Israel) shall be ashamed and disgraced; they shall be as nothing, and those who strive with you shall perish.”
Isaiah 44:18 “They do not know nor understand; for He has shut their eyes so they cannot see, and their hearts so they cannot understand.”
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.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
The tree-huggers delight:
The Bible uses plants, trees, colours, animals, birds, numbers and more to describe people and nations. It is the subliminal symbols that are of great significance and meaning, especially in relation to Israel.
Did you realise that the entire course of Israel’s history is plotted in the trees? There is much more to these symbols and metaphors - for another time.
Here are some amazing messages blowing in the wind, relating to Israel.
►The Olive tree: (Romans 11)
These trees have very deep, well established roots. They are sometimes called eternal trees, because they are so hardy; they live for many thousands of years. An ancient olive tree appears to die, but then miraculously, new shoots appear out of the dead wood continuing its existence.
The olive tree produces a rich olive oil which has numerous uses, but is also a type of the Holy Spirit. Olive oil is required to keep the temple menorah flames burning. This symbolises light. Olive tree leaves are symbols of peace. Remember the dove bringing back an olive branch to the ark after the flood of judgement.
The root of the olive tree is symbolic of God Himself. The root is called, “holy.”
Biblically, there are two olive trees of importance. The natural olive tree, is symbolic of Israel, and the wild olive tree, is symbolic of the church. The wild olive branch was “grafted” into the natural olive tree, thus partaking of the goodness of the root.
The national emblem of Israel includes two olive branches.
An ancient olive tree grove:
►The Fig tree:
The fig tree is symbolic of spiritual fruitfulness after severe pruning or judgement. It relates to Israel in the tribulation period, awakening to spiritual life.
The fig tree is unique in that its blossoms appear before the leaves. It should have fruit appearing before the leaves. This is why our Lord cursed the unfruitful fig tree, causing it to die. The root was not destroyed though, and a new tree full of fruit, is about to appear.
When the disciples asked out Lord what would be the sign of His coming, He listed a number of judgements to fall on the world. But one of these was the sign of the fig tree.
Matthew 24:32-34 “learn the parable of the fig tree: When is branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that the summer is near. So also you when you see all these things, know that it is near, even at the very doors. Assuredly, I say to you, ‘this generation (of Jews) will be no means pass away till all these things are fulfilled.’”
Present day Zionism and the awakening of the Jews, as well as modern anti-Semitism are signs of the fig tree putting forth leaves and about to produce much spiritual fruit.
►The Almond tree:
The almond is the first tree to flower in its season, which at the end of winter. The flower has five petals to it, five being the number of grace. The temple menorah, a symbol of light, has oil cups or containers in the shape of almond flowers.
The Hebrew word for “almond” is “shakeid” which also means to “awake” and “watch”.
The almond is symbolic of Messiah’s resurrection. It speaks of the supernatural power of God as seen in Aaron’s almond branch that budded in one day. (Numbers 17:8)
Jeremiah 1:11-14 “The word of the Lord came to me saying, ‘Jeremiah, what do you see?’ I said, ‘I see the branch of an almond tree.’ Then the Lord said, ‘you have seen well for I am about to perform My word.’ And the word of the Lord came to me a second time, saying, ‘what do you see? And I said, a boiling pot and it is facing away from the north.’ Then the Lord said to me: ‘Out of the north calamity shall break forth on all the inhabitants of the land.’”
The message here is that as the almond (Israel) flowers and buds she will be plunged into the tribulation period.
Jeremiah 31:28 “It shall come to pass that as I have watched over them to pluck up, to break down, to throw down, to destroy and to afflict them, so I will watch over them to build and plant says the Lord. In those days they shall say no more, ‘The fathers have eaten sour grapes...’”
Psalm 80:8-9 “You have brought a vine out of Egypt, You have cast out the nations and planted it. You prepared room for it, and caused it to take deep root and it filled the land.”
This vine, Israel, is described as “the choicest vine.” But it is a vine that also has within it a “winepress.” (Isaiah 5:1-2) The “winepress” speaks of the crushing tribulation to come!
God planted Israel as a “noble vine” of the highest quality, yet it became an alien, degenerate vine. This speaks of Israel's rebellion to Messiah. (Jeremiah 2:21)
As with the olive and the fig tree, the vine will bear its good fruit in its time, which is just around the corner!
►Other trees symbolic of Israel:
Joel 1:12 (Context: Israel is invaded in the tribulation period) “The vine has dried up and the fig tree has withered; and the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the apple tree. All the trees of the field have withered. Surely joy has withered away from the sons of men.
But we know that Israel's story does not end in the tribulation. Joy will return.
The Cedar: Symbol of power, royalty and majesty. The Oak: Symbol of strength and stability. The Palm: Symbol of military victory and victory in Messiah. The Pomegranate: Symbol of abundance and joyfulness. The Acacia: Symbol of beauty. The Myrtle: Symbol of God’s favour and blessing.
The grand summary:
Israel is: Deeply rooted in God with an eternal future. Israel contains the light-producing oil of the Spirit of God and soon will be Messiah’s light of the world! Israel will be at peace soon. The church is a “wild” family member of Israel through our joint root in God. Israel will become fully fruitful after pruning. Israel’s ripening fruit is a sign of Messiah’s coming. Israel will bud and come to life supernaturally in a day and then bring the light of salvation to the Gentile world. Israel will go through the winepress of tribulation, be attacked from the north and fall under calamity, because she was the choicest, noble vine and yet gave herself to paganism. (Baal) Finally Israel will fulfil God’s call and plan in power, majesty and strength, abundance, and blessing.
All of this is revealed in the nature of this forest of trees, and the corresponding Bible verses. How can you not be a tree-hugger!
Edition 302: March 9th 2016
Anti-Semitism in the church:
Anti-Semitism in the church:
This is a shocking, terrible, tragic but true subject. It is worsening all the time. Its evil tentacles have spread so far and so deep you will be amazed to see how it has infiltrated so many lives – perhaps yours too. The good news is that you can cleanse yourself now from all this spiritual dirt and be clean and free.
You can’t have anti-Semitism in the church without an anti-Semitic Christ. So, churches of anti-Semitism have a foreign Christ at their head. They have a false Christ, “another Jesus”, and they don’t even know it!
Our Lord and Messiah is not, and never has been anti-Semitic – ever. The exact opposite is the truth. The spirit of anti-Semitism in the church has changed and diminished the Jewish identity of our Messiah, to a jolly Christmas Christ – a fraud.
In this edition, my intention is to bring you a crystal clear message on this subject with no ambiguity and no place to hide if you are against it. My intention is to rebuke, warn and guide.
Have you been influenced by anti-Semitism in the church?
The definition of anti-Semitism:
Anti-Semitism is defined as prejudice and discrimination against the Jews. It manifests as outright hatred leading to murder, and sometimes it just simmers as pride of heart. Its origin is purely spiritual arising in the heart of Satan.
Its ultimate purpose and agenda is to destroy, hinder or obstruct God’s plans for the Jews, Jerusalem and Israel.
In the church, anti-Semitism is closely related to replacement theology. They are brothers in the devil’s arms. Replacement theology believes that Israel has been replaced by the church, and God is now finished with the Jews. But it goes further and replaces the truths of God’s word with this evil error and replaces the true Jewish Messiah with a Christmas Christ who is no Jew at all.
Interestingly, those who replace Israel with the church, and the Jewish Messiah with the Christmas Christ also remove 27% of the Bible from their preaching and teaching. It is Bible prophecy that constitutes 27% of the Bible. It is this Bible prophecy where all the ins and outs of Israel in these last days are spelled out.
If you don’t know biblical truth, how can you spot the lie? How can you prevent your deception?
Most of the modern church is full of half-baked truth mixed with pure error, rendering it powerless. It’s one thing to have a church full of spineless weak modern pagans, but it’s another to have pulpits filled with wolves, goats, and pigs.
Replacement theology masquerades as a peaceful theology, while anti-Semitism knows no bounds in terms of expression including mass murder and war.
The history of anti-Semitism in the church:
The biggest lie emerging from the churches of anti-Semitism is the claim that the Jews killed our Lord. Their view is that the Jews were and still are cursed, evil and inferior to themselves.
Replacement theology began in early-church days. Constantine and then the Catholic church and the so-called church fathers constructed this far reaching theology designed to re-characterise the church and de-Judaise it. What they did, perhaps unintentionally, was re-characterise the head of the church, our Jewish Messiah – Yeshua.
The works of the Catholic church in re-characterising the early church was based on their hatred for the Jews.
Make no mistake, the reformers were just as anti-Semitic and simply continued and entrenched the Jew hatred of the Catholics.
This can be seen in numerous revolting, sickening works of art, sculpture, stained glass windows and paintings. Most of these vomit-producing art works, hailed by the churches of England and Europe, still stand proudly today. But little do these churches know that their revolting art is a testimony to Satan’s intervention in these churches. Most of them are denominational churches.
Anyone with any sensitivity to God would rip these art works down destroy them and assign them to same waters as Osama!
●Ecclesia et Synangoga is the title for a group of art works depicting the church proud upright and confident looking down on the Jew, blindfolded, with a broken staff, hiding her Bible (Old Covenant) behind her in shame.
●Wittenberg, Germany is famous as the place where Matin Luther nailed his 95 point thesis to the church door. But it is less known for the revolting work of art called Judensau (Jew’s sow). These art works, and there many, have been there since 1305 and shows Jews sucking at a sow (pig) from behind and below.
●The “blood libel” of Europe was a false allegation that the Jews murdered Christian children so that they could use their blood to make matzos. The Fresno below is one of these lie-perpetuating art works depicting Jews killing a child to get his blood.
There are so many more horror art works, mainly in Europe still standing that today are not an indictment on the Jews as intended, but on the church leaders who continuously flaunt their evil monstrosities to the world – a true reflection of their continuing evil hearts.
The de-Judaising of Germany led to mass murder. But the de-Judaising of the church by the Catholics and the reformers has led to the eradication of the Jewish Messiah and replaced Him with the Christmas Christ.
The lack of resistance and criticism from the church gave the Nazi’s a “licence” to go ahead with the Holocaust. Today the world is again being influenced by the spirits of anti-Semitism and the church, in most cases, is silent or even in agreement just as in Nazi days.
The Deutsche Church went as far as disassociating its brand of Christianity from the Old Covenant completely. They published their de-Judaised New Testament. Churches in Europe in the WW11 era were seedbeds of anti-Semitism and Jew-hating preaching – just like many of them are today again.
The churches of Europe should have been standing with the Jews in WW11! They should have recognised the Messiah’s will to save the Jews. They should have seen the Jews as future brothers in the Lord!
Some were full of anti-Semitic ranting and some were silent in the face of the Holocaust. Both were fully complicit and completely condemned as they are again today for the same reasons!
Most of the churches of Europe are evil cesspools of no morality, no holiness, no righteousness, no salvation, no biblical doctrine and the works of the devil in replacement theology, which leads to replacement reality – anti-Semitic attacks.
Do you really think God does not take notice of all these things?
Job 34:21 “His eyes are on the ways of man, and He sees all his steps. There is neither darkness nor shadow of death where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves.”
This is a Latin phrase. I have no love for Latin, but I love these two words!
The definition is: “By the scriptures alone.” This means the supreme authority of all matters is the Bible. (2 Timothy 3:16, Acts 17:11)
Sola Scriptura must have an added element, which is revelation knowledge. Ordinary head knowledge is dead letter and not good enough. We must have the element of knowledge above knowledge which is what we call revelation knowledge – bringing the word to life.
The true Christian is Sola Scriptura. He is one with the Lord and His word. This is what makes him a radical and a revolutionary, hated by the world.
Anything short of this is a fraud, a failure and leads to “Sola Satan”.
Spirits of truth and error:
1 John 4:6 “We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.”
What a powerful and far reaching verse that is!
Anti-Zionism is Satan’s attempt to discredit and undermine God’s word. It is unbiblical and “un-God” in the extreme. No subject in the Bible is given greater prominence than the restoration of Israel in these days.
Error does not become truth by popular demand or by the word of an evil wolf in the pulpit, declaring it to be so. The anti-Semites, led by the spirit of error, have replaced the true God with a God of their creation - an imaginary God.
The worldly church does not win the world, the world wins it! Compromise with any of the ways of the world shows you up as true spineless sell-out.
God is a biblical Zionist. You can’t study or know the Bible and come to any other conclusion. Many wolves claim that the New Covenant has replaced the Old and therefore the word of the prophets of old is irrelevant today.
You can’t dispense with the Old Covenant prophets. Yeshua rebuked those who did not believe everything the prophets wrote.
The spirits behind antichrist, anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism, and anti-God’s word are all of the same. ISIS is anti-Semitic, just the same as the anti-Semitic spirit in numerous churches.
Our Lord said this, not to poor people in general as is often quoted, but to the Jews. “What you do to the least of these, My brethren (Jews), you do to Me.” (Matthew 25:40)
Do you see the danger of anti-Semitism wrapped up in that verse? Replacement theology pastor, minister, bishop, do you see that you are a detestable affront to our Lord and His attacker from your very pulpit?
But don’t for one moment think that because in the church, it is passive and harmless! In fact the replacement theology of the Catholic church and their so-called church fathers led directly to the Catholic mass murder of millions of Jews in the Inquisitions.
The replacement theology of the reformers, Luther in particular, contributed to the Holocaust. Hitler often quoted from Jew-hater Luther. Now here we are with replacement theology arising in just about all of the denominational non-spirit-filled churches and some spirit-filled churches. If this is the passive stage, what will the active anti-Semitic stage be?
By the way, all of the reformers besides the Wesley brothers were anti-Semitic. (Look it up).
Churches of replacement theology and anti-Semitism, you preach love and tolerance but you are the Jewish Messiah- killers of this age. – You murderers dressed in your Nicolaitan, Laodicean, fancy garb to give you a false sense of importance.
The people, the land and the city:
The Jewish people, the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem are all the subject of replacement theology and anti-Semitism in the church (and outside). But let’s have a look at what God’s word says about the people, the land and the city. Is the church right in their anti-Semitism?
Psalm 48:1-2 “The City of the Great King of the Jews. (Jerusalem)”
Zechariah 3:2 “The Lord said to Satan, the Lord rebuke you Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you!”
2 Samuel 7:23-24 “Who is like your people, Israel, the one nation on the earth whom God went to redeem for Himself...for You have made your people Israel Your very own people forever; and You O God have become their God.”
1 Kings 8:53 “You separated them (Jews) from among all the peoples of the earth to be Your inheritance...” 1Kings 10:9 “...The Lord has loved Israel forever...”
Psalm 135:4 “The Lord has chosen Jacob (Israel) for Himself, Israel for His special treasure.”
Jeremiah 31:3-4 “Yes I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with loving kindness I have drawn you. Again I will build you, and you shall be rebuilt, O virgin Israel...”
Jeremiah 3:14 “Return O backsliding children (of Israel), says the Lord; for I am married to you. I will take you one from a city and two from a family, and bring you to Zion.”
In these wonderful verses above (and numerous more) we see that Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews are God’s choice. He loves them. We see that it is Satan who opposes what God has chosen.
Here’s the big all important question. The Bible reveals right here what God has chosen and what He loves. How can you as a believer or minister of God not love what God loves? The living God asks you the same question.
A church that does not preach on what God loves and is doing, and is silent on the attacks of the devil on the Jews, Israel and Jerusalem is a sell out. Too many of today’s churches preach sickly sweet, self motivational sermonettes to their half-baked, blind, worldy lambettes, when they should be arising as a lion from the pulpit and standing for God’s full word.
I wouldn’t like to put a number on it, but the majority of church leaders today have stolen their pulpit. They are self-appointed. They are true wolves!
So many ministers today hate what God loves. They love what the devil loves and have chosen what the devil has chosen and rejected what God has chosen.
How can you say you love our Lord, but not His word (all of it)? What is a Christian who does not believe the Bible? - A fraud through and through.
As a minister, in any form of ministry, you do not and must not give yourself to your people. You give yourself fully and completely to our Lord and His word and He “distributes” you to whom He wants and when. Far too many have given themselves to the hierarchy of their denomination or the so-called church fathers or the doctrine of the church and of course, the opinions of the masses.
Untold masses of ministers in these days are ignorant of the Bible, especially on issues relating to Israel. They are uniformed. Some, who know the Bible, only know the dead letter of it and have no revelation.
The future of anti-Semitism in the church:
The future of anti-Semitism in the church is identical to the course of this world, and the fall of Satan’s world under the judgement and wrath of God.
Right now we are seeing a dramatic increase in anti-Semitism in the church. Even some of the evangelical churches, which were traditionally Biblical Zionist, are now turning against Israel.
It is one of the many proofs of the truth of Bible prophecy and of the soon coming of our Lord. Satan is going into fast-mode, because he knows his time is short. (Revelation 12:12)
Anti-Semitism in the church is a church-wrecker. It wrecks the church from the inside. From God’s point of view, these churches have been handed over – they are finished.
The anti-Semite minister is a killer of God’s church from within.
They hide behind the cloak of intellectualism. They hide behind the cloak of love. To go from replacement theology, to anti-Semitism is no giant leap. It’s a very small and quick step, especially when empowered by the evil spirits of Babylon, Rome, Hitler and now Europe and her new lovers Islam.
One of the most horrific things imaginable is to be handed over by God to spirits of the devil.
When you have been handed over to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, you will not get out of those clutches easily if at all. You are on a slippery slope and your doom is racing towards you.
The great tragedy is the message which these churches give out to the world. They essentially are proclaiming that the world is right. Satan’s choice has been right all along!
This is all a spiritual war above all else. You need the spiritual protection, armaments and weapons to deal with and defeat these enemies.
The final end of anti-Semitism in the church and its fall:
Genesis 12:3 “I will bless those who bless you (Israel), and I will curse him who curses you.”
Psalm 129:5 “Let them all be confounded and turned back who hate Zion.”
Jeremiah 6:16-19 “Stand in the ways and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’ Also I set watchmen over you, saying, ‘Listen to the sound of the trumpet!’ But they said, ‘We will not listen.’ Therefore hear you nations and know, O congregation, hear O earth! Behold I will certainly bring calamity on this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not heeded My words, nor My law, but rejected it.”
Anti-Semitism in the church fits so well into this verse above. If you are in a church of replacement theology / anti-Semitism please have a look at your future as revealed in the verses above. Your wolf in the pulpit is leading you to destruction.
Ezekiel 35:13-14 “With your mouth you have boasted against Me and multiplied your words against Me and I have heard them. Thus says the Lord God, the whole earth will rejoice when I make you desolate.”
Church of anti-Semitism, your days are numbered. The writing is not on the wall it is in The Bible – you are doomed. The only spirit that is in you is the spirit of Satan masquerading as the spirit of God.
The church of anti-Semitism has failed with God and failed its own people it was entrusted with. The people were too afraid to rock the boat of complacent, spineless error. They were too afraid to speak up against their evil wolves in the pulpit.
John 16:1 “These things (prophetic word) I have spoken to you, that you should not be made to stumble.”
The final end of the true church:
John 18:37 “...Everyone of the truth hears my voice.”
Anti-Semitism has a clearly defined satanic purpose which is undeniable. It is to destroy God’s purposes and plans for the Jews and let’s throw in the true Christians too. Anti-Semites in the church, this is what you are working for!
The true church will roar the victor’s roar, while the church of anti-Semitism screams under the judgement of the Lion in the destruction of their own making. The true church believed, applied and loved the word of God.
The true church is impossible to destroy. Truth is impossible to destroy. They will endure, while error and the false dies a terrible death at the hands of the devil himself.
For all eternity every human being that ever lived including all anti-Semites, Hitler too, will believe every word of the Bible – but for all the unsaved it’s too late!
More deadly than ISIS, Hamas, Al-Qaida, BDS and in fact the whole lot put together is anti-Semitism and its expression in the church – replacement theology. It is the underlying root of all enmity towards Israel. “The axe is laid at the root of the tree” says the Bible. Those wishing to take action for our Lord – go to the root!
If your preacher hates what God loves and preaches against what God loves, tell him so and ask him why. If your church minister is silent on these things, ask him why.
I encourage true believers to take a stand against their church leaders who are entrenched in replacement theology / anti-Semitism. Separate yourselves from them and do not be silent. You need to gracefully encourage them to get out of the pulpit, and step down.
If your church leader loves what God loves (as revealed in the scriptures) and preaches exactly that, encourage him, thank him and tell him that you stand with him, God and Israel.
I declare to you with the full authority of the living God: His grace and mercy is reaching out. There is time to change your ways now, although not much. There is time to cleanse yourselves spiritually. There is time to distance yourselves from the love of what God hates. God’s grace will soon run out. Your time is just up already. Be wise, choose what God has chosen. Do it now!
I took this picture from a micro-light flying over a section of the enormous Okavango Delta in Botswana. It is about 15,000 sq. kms, the largest inland delta in the world, and is home to more animal species than you can imagine. The Okavango is entirely within the Kalahari Desert Sands complex covering four nations with glorious desert! The Okavango is like a giant, wild oasis.
