Jeremiah 5:31 “The prophets prophecy falsely, and the priest rule by their own power; and My people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end.”

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 course of Israel and the church:
The course of Israel has a number of parallels with the course of the church, and many direct opposites to the course of the world.
I have compiled a few of the many verses relating to God’s relationship with Israel and the church – for your benefit. In this day, pressure is mounting on both. In reality it is mounting on God’s relationship with the two. The course of the world must be considered too.
It’s of great importance to know these things and to know them well. Do not be neutral! If you are, you will succumb to increasing satanic pressure and are likely to turn and come against the work of God, beginning your ride down a slippery slope.
Have a look at these amazing verses below and note the progression, as seen in the words in bold.
Exodus 4:22 “Say to Pharaoh, ‘Israel is My son, My firstborn.”
Hosea 11:1 “When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called My son.”
Romans 9:26 “It shall come to pass where it was said to them (Israel), ‘you are not My people’, there they will be called, sons of the living God.’”
Numbers 6:27 “So they shall put My name on the children of Israel and I will bless them.”
Hosea 2:19 “I will betroth you (Israel) to Me forever; yes, I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in loving kindness and mercy.”
Jeremiah 31:4 “Again I will build you and you shall be rebuilt, O virgin of Israel...You shall be adorned.”
Isaiah 54:5-6 “Your maker (Israel) is your husband, the Lord of hosts is His name...He is called the God of the whole earth.”
There are many similarities in these verses with God’s work in the church, but please note that most of these verses and terms above relate to family. This indicates a warm, personal relationship. It is not a cold religious law and works-based relationship.
So, God has a family called Israel as well as the church. You don’t want to mess with God’s family! Only the blind or stupid would do so.
As we see in these verses above, the course of Israel goes from the call to leave Egypt to birth, to child, to son, to virgin, to marriage, to receiving His name, to husband. What an incredible journey!
Do you see the course of the church right here too.
The church is called out of Egypt (the world) as we are born-again. We begin life at this new-birth. We are the children of God, we are virgins in spirit, (and are born of the One who was born of a virgin). We are betrothed and soon to sit at the “marriage feast of the Lord.” We have received His name upon us – Christian (Acts 11:26) Christian = Christ in us. We are the bride of our Husband of glory.
In the verse below we see that the marriage relationship – a covenant, lasts for a thousand generations. In other words, it’s ongoing. No, God has not cast away His people. (Romans 11:2, 25)
Deuteronomy 7:9 “God is a faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations, with those who love Him and keep His word.”
The verse below shows that the world is on another course, but it is a planned and plotted course,
Ephesians 2:2-3 “You once walked according to the course of this world, according to the power of the prince of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience.”
The course of the world led by its prince of darkness, is into Egypt (the world-system) ending in hell. The course of the world is lined with disobedience and rebellion to God.
The course of Israel and the church is out of Egypt, which is a type of the world – to glory!
The course of saved Israel and the church, places us in family relationship now. The course and destiny of the church including born-again Jews is heaven, while those saved in the tribulation will be on course for the Millennium, but then at the end of it all – the grand eternal plan of God comes about, which is ultimate, union of God’s entire family forever in the eternity of eternities.
Set your eyes upon these things. Bow down your heart and mind to our Lord and His word and you will see great and mighty things! It’s all by divine design!
Edition 363: May 10th 2017.
A message to all in authority:
A message to all in authority:
Ezekiel 3:17 “I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel, hear My word and give warning for Me.”
Today, many governments and their leaders and all their related bodies are heading for their greatest ever catastrophe and they’re largely blind to it. It is coming soon!
I’ve included the mass-media in the subject material because of their major influencing power.
These messages are for all leaders, in an office of authority. It can be applied right down to family structures as well. The principles are universal.
This is a warning to the leaders of the nations and churches and those in authority everywhere.
God’s new work:
Our Lord is doing a new work. It’s just starting to gather momentum. As in times past many stood in God’s way, trying to obstruct His plans as they were motivated by the powers of Satan.
Most amazingly, many in power, authority and leadership in the nations have learnt nothing at all from the past, and it’s all about to backfire on them again, with terrible consequences.
God’s new work is with Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews. He is preparing to bring the Jews to their new Promised Land, which is salvation in Yeshua. The veil of their spiritual blindness is lifting.
This entire plan involves bringing the Jews back to their land and city – Jerusalem, first, in spiritual blindness, and then opening their eyes in these days.
Isaiah 29:18 “In that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of the obscurity of darkness.”
This work of God also signals the soon coming of the rapture, and the tribulation period. This work also signals the soon coming of the great work in which the Jews will become the custodians of truth and the messengers of the cross of Yeshua, and the deliverers of salvation to the Gentile world!
In these few sentences above, I hope you see why this is such an important time and issue. It is in fact the culmination, the apex, the climax and the crown of the greatest drama of all the ages!
This is the fulfilment of the original plan of God with and for the Jews and the world, and it’s all prophesied exactly and succinctly in the Bible.
But, there is growing, great opposition to this new work!
The veracity of Bible prophecy:
It can be demonstrated that Bible prophecy given in the past and fulfilled in the past has a 100% fulfilment record. Historic Bible prophecy relating to these days is continuing to be fulfilled in the same manner – exactly.
The veracity of the Bible, and its relevance today, is being thrown out of society more and more. Its powerful words of prophecy for these days and beyond are largely unknown. All its wonderful, incredible benefits are being lost only to be replaced with the “benefits” of the fallen world, the demonic and Satan himself.
But the Bible, the words of God stand forever!
The mass media is a leading voice and authority in the world.
In many ways the mass-media is like an orchestra. It has an invisible conductor to keep it all consistent and in harmony. But it is the orchestra of hell, performing the music of the underworld!
The mass media are the disciples of Satan in this world. They are the voice of the world. They are the chief influencing force in the world. They have power to influence and affect the lives of all from the man in the street to the queen on the throne.
You must learn how to filter out what is of the devil in the media and the entertainment world.
Have a look at this shattering verse below, which speaks for itself:
Job 42:7 “...My wrath is aroused against you and your friends, for you have not spoken of Me what is right as my servant Job has.”
In the story above, the people that did not speak right things about God were cursed with following failure. Job blew it also, but he spoke right and ended in great blessing.
The media is the chief speaker of things not right about God, concerning His plans and ways. This amazing verse has applications in so many other areas too!
Now, let’s continue with this theme:
Jeremiah 6:19 “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.”
Jeremiah 8:8-9 “How can you say, ‘we are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us’? ‘Look, the false pen of the scribe certainly works falsehood. The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken. Behold, they have rejected the word of the Lord; so what wisdom do they have?’”
What a powerful verse (above)!
Matthew 7:29 “For He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes (media).”
And now we see (below) the command to the people of God in relation to the ways of the world:
Exodus 23:1-2“You shall not circulate a false report. Do not put your hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness. You shall not follow the crowd to do evil...”
So, you think you can come against God!
Ezekiel 13:18 “Woe to the women who sew magic charms on their sleeves and hunt souls! Will you hunt the souls of My people and keep yourselves alive?
You can’t negotiate with God on things that He has declared. His plan for the close of the age has been written and proclaimed and it will come to pass exactly.
In fact right now, as I write I see with my spiritual eye some who will have read these words, standing at the Great White Throne Judgement of God, being condemned to hell, because although they knew God, they rejected His word. (Romans 1:21)
I do know a number of people in high places of authority including two Presidents and Prime Ministers who are regular readers of this website. I know many military top-brass in various nations, including Israel are regular readers.
Will you read these things and ignore them, or not?
Let’s take a brief look at some in authority, who rejected the ways of God:
The Golan Heights example:
In the Bible the word for “Golan” is “Bashan.”
Numbers 21:33 speaks of the king of Bashan coming down to attack the children of Israel, just as they were to enter the Promised Land. God told Moses not to fear them because He had prepared the way for their utter defeat, with no one surviving. The children of Israel would then take control of Basham.
Interestingly, this king’s name was “Og,” which means “baked in ashes”
Do you see the modern application? As the Jews prepare to enter their Promised Land of salvation, their enemies gather to attack from the Golan Heights. Syria and her allies will be destroyed. This speaks of the Isaiah 17 destruction of Damascus, Syria and surroundings.
This is all powerful typology and points towards this war taking place before the Jews begin to be saved en masse, which could be another indicator of a pre-tribulation rapture.
The Gaza / Hamas example:
On the day of Israel’s celebration of independence a few days ago, the population reached 8.6 million, and growing fast. This is 43% of the world’s Jews. This was the day the terror organisation Hamas released to the world, its new charter.
It will not accept or recognise the state of Israel. It will continue the armed struggle against the Zionist State. They stated that “Every inch” of the land of Israel is the Palestinian homeland, with all of Jerusalem as the Palestinian Capital, defined by the 1967 borders. “All claims to Jerusalem by Israel are null and void.” Hamas rejects all previous peace efforts like the Oslo accord. In the new charter, Hamas continues to reject the Zionist states right to exist. The claim to the land of Israel is “our (Arabs) and Islam’s right.”
Hamas now calls on world leaders to join them in standing against the Zionist state. The only thing new is in the wording of the new charter is the claim that their enemy is not the Jews but the “Zionist entity”. Hamas says, “We will end the Zionist occupation for all Arabs and Islam. It is our right”
The new Hamas charter speaks of tolerance, co-existence, freedom and peace in one breath, and armed struggle against the Zionists in the next.
This new face on terror is cannon fodder for the mass media, which will “buy it” hook, line and sinker and poison the gullible world with their continued satanic garbage.
The word “Hamas” means “violence!”
This Charter has the same patterns of the great troubles Satan will launch against Israel soon.
The NOW example:
As I write, I see a news item coming across my screen saying: “Israeli ministers push for new legislation which will define Israel as the nation-state for Jews.” In other words - a Zionist State. At the same time the cursed UN group UNESCO, the EU and others are saying the opposite.
God declares the “end from the beginning!” That’s what Bible prophecy is. So let’s see what the Bible shows to be the end of Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews.
Zechariah 12:3 “It shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples and all who would heave it away, will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.”
Zechariah 14:2-3 “For I will gather all nations to battle against Jerusalem...”
Zechariah 3:2 “The Lord said to Satan, the Lord rebuke you Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you.”
Zechariah 8:8 “I will bring them (Jews) back, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. They shall be My people and I will be their God, in truth and righteousness.”
2 Chronicles 33:4 “...The Lord said, My name shall be in Jerusalem forever.”
1 Chronicles 23:25 “David said, ‘The Lord God of Israel has given rest to His people that they may dwell in Jerusalem forever.”
1 Chronicles 21:1 “Now Satan stood up against Israel...”
In these amazing verses above, do you see the importance prophetically of Jerusalem and Israel?
God’s reasons for destroying the end-time nations are clearly given, so no one has an excuse.
The coming Holocaust for the world:
The word “Holocaust” in Greek is “Holocaustum”, which means, “Fiery Sacrifice.”
Psalm 21:8-12 “Your hand will find all Your enemies; Your right hand will find those who hate You. You shall make them as a fiery oven in the time of Your anger; The Lord shall swallow them up in His wrath, and the fire shall devour them. Their offspring You shall destroy from the earth, and their descendants from among the sons of men. For they intended evil against You; they devised a plot that they were not able to perform. Therefore You will make them turn their backs; You will make ready Your arrows on Your string towards their faces.”
Isaiah 24:1-6 “Behold, the Lord makes the earth empty and distorts its surface. It shall be; as with the people, so with the priest...The earth mourns and fades away, the world languishes and fades away; the haughty (proud) people of the earth languish. The earth is defiled under its inhabitants...they have broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore the curse has devoured the earth...therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned and few are left.”
There are hundreds of verses showing the destruction of the nations of the world in the soon-coming tribulation period. The Bible shows that nearly two thirds of the world’s population will be killed in that time.
God’s end-time Holocaust will be upon the nations who came against Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews. It will be against all sin, evil and wickedness, and all the devil’s disciples.
The fiery Holocaust to come:
The Bible contains a well known story of a “fiery furnace”, that is “seven times hotter”! The story in Daniel of the three Jews thrown into the fiery furnace has many incredible types associated with it.
All the great leaders were summoned to worship the king of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar’s golden statue at the sound of the trumpets. This image of gold was sixty cubits high, six cubits wide, and to be worshipped with six musical instruments. (666)
The three Jews refused to bow down and worship it.
They were thrown into this seven times hotter, “Holocaust” oven for this. Daniel was not there! Where was he?
Daniel represents the church, while the three Jews represent Israel. The church is raptured before the seven year fiery tribulation period! The Jews are saved right in it!
In the tribulation period people will be compelled to worship the “image of the beast” and those that don’t will be killed.
Note that in the story, Nebuchadnezzar looked into the fiery holocaust and saw the Angel of the Lord with the Jews. He had the three Jews brought out and they were fine, not even having the “smell of fire upon them!”
Here is a wonderful tribulation-period application of that:
Zechariah 8:22-23 “Many peoples and strong nations shall come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the Lord. In those days, ten men of every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, ‘Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.”
It was at the close of WW11 and the Holocaust that Jews began to be saved. This was also when Israel became a Zionist nation.
The terrible, horrific end of those in authority who reject God’s authority:
Revelation 17:13-17 “These (nations of world) are of one mind and they will give their power and authority to the beast. They will make war with the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them for He is Lord of lords and King of kings...For God has put it in their hearts to fulfil His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast.”
In these tragic verses above we see the nations of the world wilfully give their authority to the world’s leader, Satan himself. Now, (below) we see the end of the individual leaders, represented by “the great people”:
Revelation 20:12-15 “I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life, and the dead were judged according to their works...and anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.”
In these verses above, “great people” are found to have rejected the salvation of the Lord. They are then judged on their own book of works. Their tragedy is that they didn’t realise that the passing grade was 100% and were cast into hell. Our Lord’s 100% is given freely to true believers!
Here now are a few very powerful end-time verses to consider:
Psalm 9:17 “The wicked shall be turned into hell and all the nations that forget (Lit=reject) God.”
Joel 3:1-2 “In those days and at that time, when I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem. I will gather all nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgement with them there on account of My people, My heritage, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations. They have also divided up My land.”
Psalm 83:3-5 “They (Leaders of Arab nations) have taken crafty counsel against Your people and consulted together against Your sheltered ones. They have said, ‘Come, let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more...They form a confederacy against You.”
Isaiah 54:15-17 “Indeed they shall surely assemble, but not because of Me, whoever assembles (UN) against you (Israel) shall fall for your sake...No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgement, you shall condemn.”
Joel 3:4 “...Will you retaliate against Me? But if you retaliate against Me, swiftly and speedily I will return your retaliation upon your own head.”
The ways of God:
Psalm 33:12 “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, and the people whom He has chosen as His own inheritance.”
Isaiah 42:6 “I the Lord have called you (Jews) in righteousness, and will hold your hand; I will keep you and give you as a covenant to the people, as a light to the Gentiles.”
All of the ways of God will come to pass exactly! What is coming to Israel is great glory, righteousness, universal holiness, purity and the majesty of God.
Government leaders -you mass murderers!
We know the Bible prophesies the mass murder and martyrdom of perhaps many millions of tribulation saints, both Jews and Gentiles. Who do you suppose it is who murders all these people?
It can only be the leaders of the nations of the day! They will have given their authority to Satan and it will be him working through them in the final attempt to stamp out the remaining enemies of Satan - God’s servants.
The hatred of the devil for God will finally fully manifest. The hatred of the world for the Kingdom of God will finally manifest as the leaders of the world’s nations become mass murderers – Satan’s agents.
Believers in our Lord:
Are you on the right track? Are you moving forward with our Lord in His ways? If so there will be signs in your life. You will be overcoming the world, not joining it! And here is a shocking verse for you:
Psalm 119:53 “Indignation (horror) has taken hold of me, because of the wicked who forsake your law / word.”
Are you shocked at the condition of the world? Are you shocked at the condition of the leadership of the world? – You should be.
What you believe matters! Leaders and those in authority, what you believe will not only affect you, but your nation or institution to some degree! You have little time left to get your acts together!
There is much I have not even touched on relating to the judgement of the nations, the sheep and goat nations and much more. Leaders, the weight on your shoulders is enormous! You will be safe following the God of the Bible.
Leaders, what you can also do if you don’t like this, is just tear all these verses out of the Bible, or throw your Bible out. Oops, sorry, I forgot, most of you would not even have one!
At the end of your day, it will change nothing!
I took the White Rhino picture in a local game reserve and the zebras in another. I’ve merged them together for effect.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
