- Iran / US / Israel tensions rise as Iran says it will strike Israel if attacked by the US as more military hardware pours into the region. Today (15 May) Iran offically begins unlimited production of enriched uranium.
- Anti-Semitic rhetoric continues to rise in US Democratic Party, without any of them calling for a cessation or change, meaning their silence is agreement.
- Today (14th May) is the actual anniversary of Israel’s independence.
People seek affirmation and acceptance. They seek approval and assurance, looking for validation and value. But they seek it in the world and in their own selves (flesh or sin nature) and there they encounter the father of lies, telling them that they’re okay. It is the world and self that must die on the cross! So why go to those sentenced to death for their sin, for approval? (Galatians 2:20, 6:14)
People must decide on the inherent goodness of man or the inherent wickedness of the heart of man. If the latter, a saviour is needed. (Jeremiah 17:9)
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!
A most dramatic prophecy:
I really do expect many big prophetic things to break onto the world stage within days, weeks and perhaps a few months. Now is the time to be ready and stay spiritually tuned in!
Tread carefully when the warning trumpets are warming up and the warning bells are ringing. Today, I want to put before you a dramatic prophetic warning about to break onto the world scene. With so many ducks in row – wake-up time!
Today there is an explosion of interest in end-time things and the spirit of error is there to provide the deceived with more deception, and Spirit of truth is there to lead the genuinely humble into all truth.
If all these events which are happening were not recorded in the Bible, and someone recorded them now, they would look exactly like Bible prophecy! But the unsaved world simply does not have spiritual eyes and ears to see any of it, or know it. They are wandering blindly in confusion.
Have a careful look now at the following few verses, they are dramatic to say the least!
Isaiah 44:28, 45:1-3 “(The Lord) says to Cyrus, he is My shepherd, and shall perform all My pleasure, even saying to Jerusalem, you shall be built, and to the temple, ‘your foundation shall be laid.’ Thus says the Lord to His anointed, to Cyrus whose right hand I have held – to subdue nations before him and loose the armour of kings, to open before him the double doors, so that the gates will not shut...I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places...”
These few verses above, speak prophetically of: ●The status of Jerusalem. ●The beginning of the building of the third temple. ●Subduing nations, weakening or causing their submission. ●Conflict with surrounding nations, ●Keys to double-door access to Jerusalem. And ●Oil!
But there is more: “Double doors” represent strongly secured doors or access. The context here is Jerusalem. Revelation 3:7 speaks of the faithful church being given the “key of David” which opens and no one shuts.”
This “key of David” is a reference to Isaiah 22:20-22 where Eliakim becomes a political leader, with God’s favour on him. He is given the “key of David” to open to the “inhabitants of Jerusalem.”
The name “Eliakim” means “God will raise him up.”
Cyrus was a godless leader, but God used him for His purposes. Here we see both Cyrus and Eliakim being examples in type of President Trump.
Remember last time I said that the decree of Cyrus to rebuild the temple happened as the seventy-year Babylonian captivity ended. In terms of our analogy in type, that is now!
Deuteronomy 33:24 “Asher is most blessed of sons; let him be favoured by his brothers, and let him dip his foot in oil.”
The land of the Hebrew tribe of Asher is foot-shaped, right in the north of Israel bordering the coastline, which is exactly where the huge, recently discovered “Leviathan” oil and gas fields are, which are already in operation. (“Asher” means: Blessed.)
There was also a recent large oil discovery in the Negev Desert. Israel is already supplying oil and gas to Europe and other neighbours. Iran and Russia do not like this one little bit.
Some 30% (18.5 million b/d) of the world’s oil passes through The Straits of Hormuz, a chokepoint in the Persian Gulf, controlled by Iran, on its way to the west.
This single spot has the potential to cripple the world’s economy if its life-blood, oil, is stopped. Iran knows this and has threatened to close the Straits before. But now so many other things are all lining up and cornering Iran like a rabid dog.
Bear in mind that Iran has just repeated its threat to attack Israel if the US attacks it. That’s like going to your next door neighbour on the right and punching him out because your neighbour on the left got on your nerves!
Actually, it’s all about dancing, deceiving, demons and devils in Iran’s head.
It is the modern Cyrus who will get all these things going. And yes, there is enough biblical evidence to identify President Trump as that man.
Israeli leader Netanyahu has compared King Cyrus to President Trump. Numerous Bible prophecy buffs have done the same. This is all analogy, type and shadow in operation, which I agree with here.
There is a rule in applying type to a biblical situation. Never take the analogy too far. It may be only certain aspects of the biblical source that apply in type.
Most importantly it is must have the leading and revealing of the Spirit of God behind it.
Bear in mind that those outside of the leading of the Spirit, or who have their own agendas, generally see nothing in the types and often resist them.
So, let’s see what we have:
We have President Trump’s backing, and securing of Jerusalem as belonging to Israel. This applies to Golan too. We will soon have the laying of the foundation of the temple. That is still to come. We have the subduing of nations through agreement like with Saudi Arabia and war coming with others like Iran. And we have the oil issue. We have the key to Jerusalem’s double doors being kept open.
This current prophetic scenario includes: ●Iran resumption of its nuclear weapons program, which is underway again. ●Iran’s repeated hatred for Israel, and threats against her. ●Iran’s crashing economy and currency, ●Iran’s attack on four ships (so far) in the Persian Gulf and its threat to use the closure of the Straits of Hormuz as a weapon against the world economy. ●A new 10-nation military confederacy in Europe has just been put together by Macron of France. ●Syria continues to sizzle ahead of its total destruction.
The law of war is not enshrined in the courts of the UN, the World Court, the EU, the UK, the US or Israel or any other nation. It is enshrined in the word of God. “The Lord of hosts” is used hundreds of times in the Bible. “Hosts” is the word for armies – the armies of our Lord.
The purpose for prophesied war and all these end-time upheavals is to bring in true world peace, righteousness and glory!!
Beware - many of these things will be coming with sudden shock.
Edition 413: April 17th 2018
Israel: Born in a day - twice!
Isaiah 66:8 “Who has heard of such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? As soon as Zion travailed, she gave birth to her children.” Vs 10 “Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad with her, all you who love her...”
Before we even begin, I must go on record again and reject with total and utter contempt every teaching claiming that this verse above is for the church. It was popularised by the deceived Revelation 12 - sign teachers. That is all pure replacement theology and totally false, as was their entire premise.
Israel born in a day, attacked in a day – twice:
The official birthday of the modern state of Israel is 14th May 1948. The next day, the 15th is Palestinian Nakba Day. This word means, “Day of Catastrophe.” The day after Israel’s birth, she was attacked by six well-equipped Arab nations from every side, when she had only a very small rag-tag defence force. Israel won – with God’s help.
The miracle of Israel’s birth in a day will soon have a powerful likeness as she is born spiritually in a day. Not every last Jew will be born spiritually in a day, but there will be a huge amount that will:
Zechariah 3:9 “...I will remove the iniquity of that land (Israel) in one day.”
Something incredible will happen to cause this. I believe it will be the rapture of the church that will immediately cause the Jews to become angry and jealous at the same time as they, the chosen people are left behind. It will be the pre-cursor to the opening of the veil of blindness.
If not the rapture it will be something else that will happen on the first day of the tribulation.
The day of the rapture will be the day the tribulation begins. Remember that as Israel, the nation was born; she was attacked the next day, by hordes of Arab armies. Now as Israel sees her Lord in one day, she will be attacked by Satan, the antichrist and his armies of the world right away.
Israel born physically in a day has a precedent and parallel in being born spiritually in a day.
Passover is all about the children of Israel being released from Egyptian slavery - Egypt, being a type of the world-system. Passover saw great liberation and great death and destruction to the enemy.
Israel’s 70th year anniversary is all about Israel’s release form the bondage of Egyptian and Babylonian captivity. Babylon is another type of the world-system.
Does this mean that huge wars and attacks are about to begin? I believe so!
Tomorrow, the 18th April, sees a huge celebration and festive outpouring in Israel marking Israel’s 70th birthday. The day is being tagged by Israel as “A nation born in a day.” (Isaiah 66:8)
All of this is part of the massive, glorious unfolding of God’s wonderful plans.
Here are some 70’s for you:
●70 is the number of completeness. It is the number of judgement relating to Israel.
●70 is also the number of release relating to Israel.
● “70 sevens are determined upon the Jewish people.” (Daniel 9:24) That is “70 sevens” of years until the judgement of the tribulation, which also sees the release of the Jews from blindness.
●Israel was originally made up of 70 (Genesis 46:27, Exodus 1:5 Ruth 4:11.)
●Israel fell into captivity in Babylon for 70 years –then released.
●The Jewish temple was destroyed in 70AD.
●70 Jewish disciples were sent out by Luke 10:1,17
God’s final purposes for Israel are about to take place!
Isaiah 49:6 “Is it too small a thing that you (Israel) should be My Servant...I will also give You as a light to the Gentiles, that You should be My salvation to the ends of the earth.”
Israel will receive the “comfort” of bombs and the “love” of hell again before receiving the comfort and love of God.
Tumultuous times of temples, gore and glory are coming fast.
The attack on Israel is on the go already. It began with the Roman Emperor Constantine in 300AD, it went on and still is on the go from the Catholic church, who hates the idea that Israel is under the control and choice of God and not them.
It is on the go in and through the Palestinians and the religion of Islam.
It is on the go through much of the church in the form of replacement theology.
But the attack will be sharp and furious as soon as the tribulation begins – in fact just before.
Israel is not a land issue, it’s a Satan issue. The entire Israeli – Palestinian problem is a God-said / Satan-said, issue, just as in the Garden! God said to the children of Israel, “dispossess the land and settle in it.” This is for God’s ultimate grand purposes. (Ezekiel 34:11-13, Deuteronomy 1:8).
By the way, “Jerusalem” is mentioned 660 times in the Old Covenant and the synonym, “Zion” is mentioned 158 times. In the New Covenant, Jerusalem is spoken of 146 times and “Zion” 7 times. Total = 971 times. In every single case – no exceptions, God speaks of Jerusalem as His and for His people the Jews.
“Jerusalem” is not even mentioned once in the Quran – not once! Funny thing that the clever fools of CNN and others in the media don’t or won’t acknowledge that!
The name “Jerusalem,” means “City of peace.” The Prince of peace is coming, but on the wings of war, because of the world’s stubbornness and enslavement to Satan.
World peace can only come about in world righteousness. And world righteousness will only come about when Israel is in her rightful, God-ordained place. All of these things are about to explode into horrific world war. God will “put hooks into the jaws” of His enemies and draw them in!
Russia, how do you think you can get those God-hooks out of your jaw? (Ezekiel 38:4)
When will this all occur?
Ezekiel 39:22-29 “So the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day forward...after they have borne their shame...When I have brought them back from the peoples and gathered them out of their enemy’s lands and I am hallowed in them in the sight of many nations, then they shall know that I am the Lord their God...And I will not hide My face from them anymore; for I shall have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel, says the Lord God.”
The verse above is very powerful indeed and very clear as to what it is speaking about. It is referring to the spiritual blindness of Israel being lifted, and there coming salvation in a day. –Not so? If you think otherwise – you’re an idiot!
So where is the timing in this verse?
Glad you asked! This is one of the closing verses of the great war of Gog and Magog – the Russian invasion of Ezekiel 38 & 39.
Most analysts (including myself) refer to this as WW111. Other verses describe it as extremely intense and furious, but short. The nations of Russia, Iran, Syria, Turkey and Israel are key players, together with some other nations.
We have a very strange verse in this discourse. It says that after the war, they will burn the weapons for “seven years” and mark them out in the fields, going back later to clean up. That seems to imply nuclear fallout or chemical contamination of some sort. (Ezekiel 39:9-12)
The “seven years” is important.
Ezekiel declares that the war will be in the latter years (Ezekiel 38:16). It will be after the great re-gathering of Israel to their land, which is now. (Ezekiel 38:8)
We know that the tribulation is seven-years long. There is no indication anywhere in the Bible that weapons of any sort will be burnt and destroyed for seven years in the Millennium!
That means that this war has to take place at or very close to the start of the tribulation period. I hope your mind is doing a double take now!
We know from the verse above that the timing of the salvation of the Jews en-masse is right from day one of the tribulation.
Do you see how close we are to doubly dramatic times!
Beloved brethren, we are on the very verge of eternity! Does that excite you? It does me – intensely! If it doesn’t, may I suggest you go and dip your head in a bath of ice-water to wake you up!
God has exercised His choice:
The biggest and most stupid fools on the planet are the world’s elite politicians and members of the press – the mass-media. They are the epitome, personification and description of true fools.
They think they can override God’s choice and chose their own deluded ways and then spread that to the masses.
For your benefit here are a few verses that it is wise to know well in these days:
2 Chronicles 6:6 “I (God) have chosen Jerusalem that My name may be there...”
Zechariah 3:2 “The Lord said to Satan, The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you!
1 Chronicles 21:1 “Now Satan stood up against Israel...”
Isaiah 66:5 “Hear the word of the Lord, you who tremble at His word: ‘Your brethren who hated you (replacement theology), who cast you out for My name’s sake...you shall be ashamed.’”
Isaiah 29:5 “The multitude of your (Israel) foes shall be like fine dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passes away; yes it shall be in an instant, suddenly.”
Isaiah 41:11-16 “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...Behold, I will make you into a threshing sledge with sharp teeth...the whirlwind shall scatter them; you shall rejoice in the Lord and glory in the holy one of Israel.”
God’s plan for Abraham’s family:
This is a summary of the main points of God’s plan for Israel, the Arabs and the church. It is most important to understand all of this very clearly, because it is God’s plan and will work out exactly this way! World – sit up and take note!
The world rejects this plan and replaces it with its own Satan-inspired plan. But guess which plan will endure, and which will end in total destruction?
Israel, born of God through Abraham was to be a righteous nation, holy and pure. Israel was given covenants with God relating to their salvation and to the land. The brother of Israel – the people that became the Arabs (and Palestinians) rejected this plan of God and set themselves in enmity to it.
Various Arab tribes had settled in the land of Israel previously.
God commanded the children of Israel to settle in the land of Israel and dispossess it of the people who were there and totally destroy them and their evil religion, worship, practises and altars. (That would relate to modern Islam.)
If they did not complete this destruction of these heathen nations and their worship, as they settled in the Promised Land, God said that, these people to be dispossessed, would become irritants to Israel and thorns in their side, or should we say that they would become thorns in the apple of God’s eye. Not a good idea! (Numbers 33:50-55)
The children of Israel only partially destroyed these nations as they moved into the land. They disobeyed God.
The entire Arab / Israeli problem today is a manifestation of Israel’s failure to completely obey God.
God’s covenant promises to Israel remained in force and He eventually led Israel to become a nation in one day in 1948 and restored Jerusalem to Israel in 1967.
God declared in His word that He would bring Israel back to their land in their spiritual blindness and open their eyes when they were back. (Isaiah 42:16, Micah 7:8-9)
Numerous prophesies show the many hardships and sufferings the Jews would go though caused by the nations of the world on Israel’s journey to final victory.
The coming of our Lord birthed the church which is also an offshoot of father Abraham. God, through the new-birth, made the church pure and holy in spirit and separate from the world. The church was commissioned by God to take the good news of salvation to the nations and also the warnings of coming judgement.
The church was always to stand with Israel and make her jealous. The gospel was to go to the Jew first and then the Gentiles. (Romans 11:11, Romans 1:16)
Suddenly, in a twinkling of an eye, God is going to remove the church from the world by rapture to heaven while the seven year tribulation and wrath of God occurs on earth, devastating the world.
The Jews, en-mass will be saved, in the tribulation period, but technically not born-again as the church is. Righteousness will be imparted to them as it was with Abraham.
The Arabs, including the Palestinians, will be hostile to the Jews, and try to destroy them and take over Jerusalem and the land. If they succeeded, this would be a triumph for Islam, and the defeat of God’s plan, which He will not allow.
In the tribulation period, the Jews will destroy those that come against them. The Arab nations will be crushed by Israel. Throughout the tribulation, the Jews will be extremely successful in evangelism and taking the gospel to the Gentile nations. Many Arabs get saved in the tribulation period, but not the majority of them.
Ultimately, right at the end of the tribulation, the nations make their final assault against Israel and Jerusalem. With God’s supernatural help Israel destroys all her enemies that attack her. This brings about the climax of the ages and the Second Coming. The church returns with our Lord and a great reunion of Abraham’s children takes place.
The unsaved of the world remain blinded to all of this and especially to the fact that it is all predicted and prophesied in the Bible, even though this grand drama is occurring right before their eyes.
The world and the worldly church have a very good way of getting around all of this. The practitioners of anti-Semitism and replacement theology simply take a sharp pair of satanic scissors and cut all of the verses relating to God’s end-time plan for Israel out of the Bible.
They replace all of God’s promises for Israel with the church. They can’t see that their satanic scissors have gorged their own eyes out!
Now they present their poisoned, satanic hogwash to the world and their congregations! You can’t grow on spiritual poison!
If Bible prophecy reveals all of this up to where we are now, simple logic says that the rest will be fulfilled exactly, and literally, just as it has done in the past.
Do you see what a huge gamble, against immeasurable odds, everyone is taking who rejects or modifies God’s prophetic word?
At the end of this, the greatest drama of all time, all the saved children of Abraham will come together forever as one glorious family of God, while all the children of the devil, the unsaved of the world, unite in hell.
What incredible drama!
Right now we are on the eve of destruction. We are at the dawn of world war. We are at the threshold of the rapture and the beginning of the intense tribulation period. We are at the start of the greatest drama ever to unfold!
Of course our Lord is the God of perfect healing. Why then does He appear, well after the resurrection with scars in His hands? Why will He soon appear to His people the Jews, with wounds in His hands? (Zechariah 13:6)
It is so that there will no ambiguity or mistake in them seeing who their Messiah really is and what suffering He endured for them all!
I took this picture of sparring zebras at Etosha and the background picture and merged them.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
