The following verses apply well to the mass media:
Job 9:4 “Who has hardened his heart against Him and prospered?”
Isaiah 43:13 “...I work and who can reverse it?”
Philippians 1:9 “I pray that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and all discernment...”
Jeremiah 7:28 “You shall say to them, ‘This is a nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God, nor receive correction. Truth has perished and been cut off from their mouth.”
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 remnant church:
Be careful of cutting yourself off and becoming an independent island. We must know where we fit in and where we don’t, but don’t use this difference as a weapon. Don’t cause division. If the truth is in you and causes division, so be it. This must humble you and not fill you with pride.
Knowing these things may save your faith or at least strengthen it, in these particular troublesome times of doctrinal heresy, error and deception.
We all want to be right and not wrong, but be careful of weaponising your right with a wrong attitude of self-exaltation.
The remnant church is not a new separate entity. It is not a defined new organisation, institution, or denomination. It is a loose term for a grouping or collection of like-minded believers in love with the full truth of God and His word.
The biggest characterising mark of the remnant believer is his fear of the Lord.
Part of the end-time reality is that there will be a remnant of true believers in the midst of a fallen, false, counterfeit church of the masses. If you know that, and how to identify the counterfeit church, and the true remnant church, you are already on solid ground.
The remnant precedent is biblically set in relation to Israel. Is it any surprise that there is a remnant within the church as well?
Here, in the verses below we see this incredible remnant pattern for Israel:
Jeremiah 23:3 “I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all countries where I have driven them and bring them back to their folds and they shall be fruitful and increase.”
Isaiah 37:31-32 “The remnant of those who escaped out of Judah, shall again take root downward and bear fruit upward. For out of Jerusalem will go a remnant...the zeal of the Lord shall do this.”
Micah 7:18 “Who is a God like You, pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression of the remnant of His heritage?”
“All Israel will be saved? (Romans 11:26) It is “all” who make up the remnant!
Now, have a look at the two verses below and note well what the remnant of Israel will be doing in these end-times. They are the ones who God will use as His battle axe! (Jeremiah 51:20)
Micah 5:7-8 “Then the remnant of Jacob (Israel) shall be in the midst of many peoples, like dew from the Lord, like showers on the grass...and the remnant shall be among the Gentiles, like a lion among the beasts of the forest, who both treads down and tears in pieces...All Your enemies shall be cut off.”
Zephaniah 2:9 “Moab (Jordan / Palestinians today) shall be like Sodom, and the people of Ammon like Gomorrah...The residue of My people shall plunder them, and the remnant of My people shall possess them.”
These verses above (and many more) make it abundantly clear that God’s special chosen people are not every last Jew but a remnant amongst them. This pattern is repeated in the dispensation of the church.
We see clearly in the messages to seven churches, and other scriptures that a great number of churches are condemned by God. Only a small minority in the church are without any condemnation. (Don’t argue with me about that word “condemnation” – Read the ltetters to the seven churches)
The Prophetic Scroll will continue to draw attention to the remnant church. There is much more to come on the subject.
The remnant is becoming easier to identify as the Christian masses follow each other the wrong way and the minority remnant get’s God’s green light to go forward.
In many respects it is the minority remnant that is the pillar holding up the building.
There is a big sign playing out now in US politics. One party (Republicans) upholds the Bible and the principles of a nation under God, the other casts it down. One upholds biblically based laws and values. The other casts them down. “If you forsake the word / ways/ law of God you will praise the wicked.” (Proverbs 28:4) When you cast down the truth, “The land will mourn.” (Hosea 4:1-2)
The remnant church upholds our Lord and His word – all of it, rightly applied, as led by the Spirit of God. There is something unshakable, deeply imbedded in the hearts of the remnant believer. It is the exaltation and elevation of truth and its application.
The fall of modern man is succinctly plotted in 2 Timothy 3:1-5. (Please read it) But as we get to the last verse of this discourse we see the reason. “They have a form of godliness but deny its power - from such people turn away.” It is powerless false religion that leads to moral and ethical decay.
Note the terrible twins: “●a godly form” but “●deny its power.” Isn’t that the truth of the Spirit-less church today – the majority of them anyway?
We are in a fast deteriorating world. It is not static by any means! You need to have your heart anchored into the truth, by the Spirit, otherwise the coming storms will wreck you.
2 Timothy 3:13 “Evil men and imposters will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.”
The remnant are stable and strong. It’s good to know that if you find difficulty fitting in with much of the modern church, you are not alone. There are great many who are like you and with you.
I know that with most people, it is not at all from a position of rebellion, independence or pride. It is from a position of knowing and growing in the truth, while others grow in error and worldliness.
►Thankfully there are many congregations, and ministries which, even as a whole, are part of the remnant. God will always have His remnant at work in the kingdom.
Here is the remnant’s amazing book:
Note that this glorious “book of remembrance,” is exclusive. It’s only for the few who fear the Lord! (This is not the Lamb’s book of life of the Revelation. It is a special book of rewards for those who meet the conditions.)
Malachi 3:16-17 “Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another and the Lord listened and heard them. So a book of rembrance was written before Him, for those who fear the Lord and meditate on His name. They shall be mine, says the Lord of hosts, on the day that I make them My jewels, and I will spare them.”
Note that God eve drops on this remnant that fears Him as they speak and communicate with each other. And note the end result!
Do you think God notices what we are saying right here and communicating with each other? I think so!
Rest in the exciting truth my friends!
Edition 333: October 12th 2016
World peace Man’s way or God’s way:
World peace Man’s way or God’s way:
Before we begin, this is edition 333. Ezekiel 33:3 “When he sees the sword coming upon the land, he must blow the trumpet to warn the people...” Jeremiah 3:33 “Call to Me (Israel) and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” Isaiah 33:3 “At the noise of the tumult (tribulation) the people shall flee; when You lift Yourself up, the nations shall be scattered.”
Everyone wants to live in peace. Everyone wants to be able to put their head down at night and sleep peacefully. Logically, this desire for personal peace must extend outwards to the nation and the world.
Here’s the interesting conundrum: You can have peace God’s way or you can have peace man’s way and end in hell, which is the very antithesis of peace.
We are in a time now of accelerating prophetic events, including massive wars and conflicts and everything but peace. New wars are about to break out. Huge dramas in the geo-political arena are going to rock, shake and rattle the world. A new world economic catastrophe will soon hit.
There are some incredible, powerful, wonderful keys of truth right before us that can and will produce the goods in the face of everything falling apart. But there is a master deceiver, with his plan camouflaged and hidden, as a deadly trap right before everyone too.
The original ISIS terrorist:
A man once wanted a world of peace. The early Christians stood in his way, so he massacred and killed them. One day, he set off down the road from Aleppo, Syria, to Damascus, the Syrian capital, to murder more Christians.
What he didn’t count on was bumping into God on the Damascus road. God threw him to the ground and struck him blind, leaving him grovelling in the dirt. His name was Saul of Tarsus! The city of Tarsus is next door to Aleppo and Antioch, although today they’re technically on the border of Turkey. That area, in those days was known for its violence and what we would call today, pure terrorism. Saul of Tarsus was a Jew, but not your happy friendly type that you could go and eat bagels with. He had a lot in character with ISIS today.
Interestingly, ISIS was founded in this very same area and today is trying to set up dominance and a caliphate right along the sides of the road to Damascus with Jews and Christians dead.
We know the story – Saul suddenly realised that something supernatural had happened. “A light from above fell on him.” (Acts 9:3) Something outside of, and above his understanding had knocked him flying to the ground – blind! As he looked up, expecting the next blow, perhaps to kill him, he heard the voice of the Lord.
Saul, full of fear, said, “Lord what do you want me to do?” (Acts 9:6)
This was what we know as the Damascus road conversion. His name became Paul and he became the killer of devils and demons, with a God-given, commission, and supernaturally equipped ministry of salvation, victory and peace to his previous “infidel” Gentile enemies.
Not even 1000 Shakespeare’s could have come up with such incredible drama and even with a touch of satire to it!
This is the road to peace! It is to be struck blind to your own ideas and goals. It is to be knocked flat to the ground in brokenness and surrender. It is to be supernaturally converted, hearing God’s voice and rising in obedience to it. It is to now see with new God-given eye-sight.
Peace the world’s way
Many years ago I was commissioned to cover, journalistically and photographically, a massive World Council of Churches conference in Rustenburg South Africa, called “The Road to Rustenburg”. This was all about churches coming together in unity to create a new world of peace. The title of the conference was a play on “The road to Damascus.”
The essential big-ticket item was this: We are all going down the road to Damascus. We need a socio-political change. We need to join the oppressed, which would then bring world peace.
Many similarities with the road to Damascus story were presented by many keynote speakers. Every single one of them had one missing ingredient, which was the supernatural conversion of Saul.
One of the speakers even likened his road to Damascus interpretation with the rebuilding of Babel, citing Genesis 11:6 “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language , and this is what they begin to do; now nothing they propose to do will be withheld from them.”
He went on to point out the power in unity and when all become one with a single purpose. He kind-of forgot about the fact that God destroyed it all, like he did with the plans of Saul of Tarsus.
So this then is the world’s way to peace. It excludes the genuine new-birth and supernatural conversion and leaves all participants as demon filled, blind to the things of God, continuing down the road to Damascus (or Babel) with socio-political motivations, objectives and inspirations.
Little do they know, see or understand the soon coming total annihilation of Damascus (Isaiah 17), or remember the destruction of Babel.
Peace man’s way excludes the required supernatural God-created metamorphosis to new-birth. It will bring you peace alright – peace with the world, peace with Damascus and Babel, and have you got a nasty surprise coming!
Those who are of this world-peace, must “bomb” God’s word, His people, the Jews, and true biblical Christians, because their way to peace is totally different, separate and unacceptable to them.
Messages of doom:
Do you know Bible numbers have meanings? For example: 1=unity, 2=division, 3=trinity, 4=world, 5=grace, 6=man under sin, 7=spiritual perfection and completion, 8=resurrection and so 4th!
When these numbers appear in three’s they are more important.
●4 is the number of the world.
●444 is the gematria of Damascus.
In Strong’s concordance we see additional interesting snippets. “G” in front of a Strong’s number means the original word is in Greek and “H”, in Hebrew.
●G444 is the number of the word, “Anthropos”, means: human being.
●H444 is the number of the word, “Alach”, meaning: Becoming morally corrupted.
●The word “Syria” is Strong’s H759, “Aram”, Meaning = “Exalted” (as in pride).
So now putting this together we see a powerful message:
The city of Damascus, capital of Syria, symbolic of the world, is doomed to total and complete destruction, “never to rise again” (Isaiah 17). The number 4 (world) is engraved into Damascus and Syria. Proud, corrupted, unsaved human beings are inextricably linked to it all in their doom.
Building peace the wrong way:
An insane German, worse than any terrorist, tried to build a perfect world of peace, to last for 1000 years! God’s chosen people, the Jews, stood in his way, like the Christians did for Saul of Tarsus. Hitler was his name.
The reason why Hitler hated the Jews was because God loved them and has His own plan for world peace involving them.
Let me give you some shocking news:
●The word, “Iran” comes from the word “Aryan”. These were an ancient Germanic people of an area in present-day Europe called Germany. They then moved down and assimilated with the Persians.
●The word “Aryan” means “noble” and was associated with perfection in nobility.
The Aryans were associated with human perfection in bodily form, which is why Hitler was so obsessed with them and believed he could create his new perfect world of noble peace with Aryans.
●The name “Adolf” means “The noble wolf.” How many “Adolfs do we have behind pulpits? Hoooo boy!
►Interestingly one of the gematria calculators set to Hebrew calculates the number of “Aryan” as 522 and the number of “Holocaust” as 522.
●The term in the Greek for “burnt offering” in the New Covenant, is the word: “Holokaustoma” (Strong’s G3650). It is the word from which “Holocaust is derived.”
Genesis 22:3-8 speaks of Abraham offering his son Isaac as a “burnt offering” to the Lord. Some translations define this “burnt offering” as a “Holocaust”. On the cross, our Lord became the “sin-offering” and the “burnt offering” for all.
Tragically, in spite of the massive price paid by the Jews in the Holocaust, they have still not paid the price for sin required by God. Our Lord Himself became the “Holocaust” for us and the Jews. He was our “burnt offering”, and through Him alone comes salvation.
My Jewish friends and brothers and sisters in waiting, your Jewish Messiah was your Holocaust! He paid the price completely for your salvation. If you reject Him again and again, the Bible declares that another Holocaust is coming your way. Please make the right choices now!
No salvation, no eternal peace:
So, we have seen a deadly link and association with the doom of Damascus, the doom of the world, the doom of man’s way to peace. We have amazing connections with Iran, Syria, the Holocaust, and the Holocaust to come, and many other things I’ll not get into now in this edition.
The unsaved hate us because they’re ugly, earthy, hell-bound larvae, and we’ve been transformed and made beautiful and perfect by God-given metamorphosis – the new-birth!
The unsaved believe world peace will come by unity and an inter-dependent human family, with universally accepted ideas. Their morality is variable, relevant for today, all inclusive, with no absolutes, virtues or values. There is no such thing as sin for them, and obviously no true holiness.
The world thinks: “Be like us. Then you will be one of us.”
World peace mans way, is man-made.
The power of the true Christian comes from the cross. That is His cross and your own cross taken up daily. The cross gives you the power to be different to the world and keeps you from integration into the world and its ways and thinking.
You know the stupid, insane statement, “He’s so heavenly minded. He’s no worldly good”? It’s a great lie. It has the bad, fiery breath of Satan on it. The truth is this: The worldlier you are, the more powerless you are. The more worldly you are, the greater your friendship with Satan and the more an enemy of God you are.
Worldliness in your life is a great and powerful measure of your walk with our Lord. “If you are born of God you will overcome the world.” (1 John 5:4)
The masses want an unholy God. They want a God that they can give birth to, manufacture, control and dictate to. They want a God that they can “edit” and judge. They want a God that’s not essentially different to them. You see people hate it when you’re not like them or you show them up by the things you do or won’t do.
People hate God’s holiness working in people. They say they love God, but actually hate His holiness. The reason is because the “heart of man is desperately wicked” says the Bible and they secretly love sin, wickedness and evil.
They don’t know it yet but they love Satan, not God!
The mass-media – the world’s voice:
The love of God gets rid of sin and is holy. The love of the world accommodates and includes sin.
The world’s mass media are the architects of world peace. The world’s politicians are the builders using these plans of the architect. But neither of them are aware that they are deluded, blind, demon-inspired puppets of hell, building a world for destruction.
The world’s mass media are perhaps the most evil of all institutions in the world. They have prepared for themselves the worst corner of hell! They have led more people there than any others. They have cursed God more than any others.
The world’s mass-media hates you in the name of love. Actually their love is so shallow it’s a joke. The mass-media wants to control you through misinformation and error which is their truth!
Their biggest cursed acts are seen in their redefining of what godly holiness is. They have redefined truth! They have redefined sin and destroyed holiness.
They have killed the conscience of the world.
The god of this world, Satan, with his co-workers the mass-media and much of the church, is responsible for the de-valuing, de-sensitising and the making of monsters out of the people.
Tragically, much of the church has done exactly the same thing, working blindly in cahoots with the media and its god, Satan. Instead of confronting sin, the church now teaches how to accommodate sin. Today most Christians think that if they fit in with the world, they’re okay with God. That’s the unadulterated garbage they’ve been taught, by their Spirit-less Adolfs!
Proverbs 28:4 “If you forsake the law (word) of God, you will praise the wicked.”
Peace never comes in wickedness.
1Thessalonians 5:3-4 “When they (unsaved) say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labour pains upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you brethren (saved) are not in darkness, so that this day should overtake you as a thief.”
It is Satan himself, as the antichrist that comes with promises of peace, just like he has done with past empires. And has the world learnt?
Daniel 11:21 “In his place shall arise a vile person, to whom they will not give the honour of royalty; but he shall come in peaceably, and seize the kingdom by intrigue.” (The word “intrigue” here is Strong’s H2519 meaning “fine promises of peace.”)
Daniel 8:25 “Through his cunning he will cause deceit to prosper under his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart. He shall destroy many in their prosperity (peace). He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without human hand.”
You would think that the world would have learnt from Babel. You would think that the world would have leant from every war Israel has fought in – winning them all! You would have thought the world would have learnt from the Nazi’s, who failed to destroy the Jews.
Do you think the world has leant from Babel? Here we have the nations of the world in unity trying to create peace again, in the near future: Revelation 17:13-14 “These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. They will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them...”
The world led by its voice of evil – the mass-media, has learnt nothing and is about to plunge headlong into its final huge, monumental, prophesied eternal destruction. Amazingly, the answer is right before the world – it is the truth of the Bible. Amazingly, the answer is being ignored again as the world chooses Satan, at the command of the mass-media. “Give us Barabbas”, they say!
Every single time Israel ceded land for peace it brought conflict and not peace – not one exception. That alone should speak loudly.
God has given the land to Israel with covenant promises. It must be, and remain a Jewish state, for God’s final purposes.
Land for peace is the way, plan and action of Satan working through his chief agents, the world’s politicians, religious leaders and mass-media.
How can you have land for peace, in rebellion to God ever produce peace?
How to kill God:
You can go down the road to Damascus or a new Babel of peace, to create world peace, by killing God’s people, but you must kill God as you encounter Him. You must kill His word.
Many entire nations like France, the Netherlands and others in Europe are prime leaders in the attempted murder of God. Many nations like those of Europe, once had the fire and light and God burning bright within them. They tried to kill God, because they loved sin more. They killed His word. They are now empty, dead shells of depression, futility and hopelessness.
They have been handed over to the gods of sex, the gods of humanism, the gods of Babylon and Babel and the gods of Islam and multi-faith with all it’s stinking stench! Their peace is a lie, that’s why so many of them commit suicide. You don’t mock God and His word and get away with it.
●To have peace man’s way, you must accept sinful lifestyles in the name of human rights.
●You must acclimatise yourself to sin, and accommodate it.
●You must remain in ignorance to the unseen world of demons.
●You must kill your conscience, and sensitivity to our Lord and His word.
●You must kill the cops. They represent the authority structures of God – like it or not. (Romans 13)
●You must kill God’s law, because it identifies what sin is demanding punishment for it.
●You must kill Bible prophecy, because it spells out your doom.
●You must kill God, so that your pride, ego, self reliance, own opinions and love for evil can flourish.
●You must kill God because He has the keys of hell, your eternal destination.
►Have you God killers got a big surprise coming! There is still time to cast your pride down and humble yourself before God.
Everlasting righteousness and holiness:
The future world will be contained in a universe of eternal, everlasting righteousness and holiness. Isn’t that something?
Only that which has gone through the cleansing, purifying, sin-removing, Holocaust-removing work of the cross will be part of the eternal glory, soon to come.
Daniel 9:24 “Seventy weeks are determined upon your people and for your holy city, to finish transgression and make an end to sins, to make reconciliation for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness...”
Psalm 119:142 “Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness and Your law / word is truth.”
Romans 6:22 “Now having being set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life.”
Everlasting peace for any individual is inextricably linked to salvation, everlasting righteousness and everlasting holiness.
Isaiah 32:17 “The work of righteousness will be peace and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever.”
Psalm 119:165 “Great peace have they that love Your word and nothing causes them to stumble.”
Isaiah 54:10 “The mountains shall depart and the hills be removed, but My kindness shall not depart from you, nor shall My covenant of peace be removed.”
My friends, the world is on its road to Damascus, carrying bricks to build the new tower of Babel – a bridge to heaven and world peace.
Unless you, personally, get struck down and are left blinded to your garbage, grovelling in the dirt, you are doomed. Unless you see a “great light” shining from above and arise and say “Lord what must I do,” you will go the way of the worldly crowd.
Peace comes on the wings of the final death throes of self under the discipline of God.
Unless you swiftly change sides from “killer” of God’s word and His people, in the name of world peace, to God’s side, His way – your doom is fast approaching!
The cross of Calvary saw the Jewish Messiah of majesty and glory, become your Holocaust! Reject Him and an eternal far worse Holocaust is coming your way! Don’t put it to the test!
I took this picture of this massive, old, beautiful, strange Baobab tree in a private game reserve in the Limpopo province, north of where I live.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
