Shabbat Shalom to all!
When the pressure is on:
What do you really do in thought and action when the pressure is really on and all things begin to shake?
It’s like the good -old toothpaste tube law: When you squeeze it, what’s inside comes out. This is when you see what’s really in your heart! “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” (Matthew 12:34)
Out of the heart under strain do you hear the mouth speak, shout, screech, swear, stress out, or be silent? Is your thinking stained, strained and stretched by stress?
Pressure sharpens your focus! It can cause you to curse or cause incredible blessing, if you change your focus to the things of God. Yes, a virus can change your focus to victory.
Tests create endurance, or in some cases cause people to give up.
Today we have a multitude of spiritually superficial, shallow shepherds, blind as a bat and deaf as a doornail to the voice of God, and with the mouth of many parrots leading their blind flock.
A lot of what you believe is related to the spiritual input from your spiritual fathers are and who you hang around with and identify with. In this day, you need to make sure who your spiritual friends are! You need to forsake many, and gather new ones.
I would feel a lot safer learning from a hell-fire and brimstone preacher of the cross than the modern, be blessed, be prosperous, be happy, positive-only preachers.
To construct this modern positive-only gospel, you have to remove all the “hard sayings and severity of the gospel. Their gospel becomes a half-baked ear-tickling tickle.
Endurance produces character. This is why a lot of the modern church is so spineless.
Some churches, you dare not walk into. They need a big sign outside saying “Enter at your own risk” or better still, “Danger, do not enter”
James 1:3 “Know that the testing of your faith produces patience (Lit=endurance) “
When the pressure is on beware of the pressure to err! Many times pressure causes you to run away and take the easy, wide road with the multitudes. That’s when you fall into error and then fear. When you have decided to take the easy erroneous road, don’t think God will help you along.
Isaiah 30:28 “His breath is like an overflowing stream, which reaches up to the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of futility; and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err.”
If your heart is not right with God, why should He lead you into all truth? The verse above applies to the world, but the principle is universal.
We are seeing a massive rise in deceptive teachings particularly relating to Israel, to the pre-tribulation rapture and the tribulation period.
As God prepares to move in new ways with Israel, there will be alarming and dramatic signs. The thrilling sounds of the shofar are shattering the midnight sounds of silence over Jerusalem even right now. (Literally!) The alarm of awakening is sounding; the ancient walls of Jerusalem are vibrating and reverberating with the breath of the Lion of the tribe of Judah – arising ready to roar onto the stage!
This is the time to reach out to the Jews with the good news of salvation in their Jewish Messiah – our Messiah. This is the time to throw out and destroy the obstacles to them coming in to the kingdom, created by the church.
If God has finished with the Jews, as many teach, how do you explain the great regathering to the land? Do you think that is just God having fun, or that it’s just meaningless coincidence?
In this day you are in trouble if you do not know how to discern the voice of truth.
You cannot obey the voice of the Lord if you can’t hear the voice of the Lord. The voice of the letter of the word is not the voice of the Lord. It is dead letter and produces death, legalism and bondage. (2 Corinthians 3:6, Galatians 5:9)
These are very dangerous days, not so much because of any virus, but because required repentance is being ignored and the source of “truth” for the people is the devil’s deceivers – the media.
A good starting presumption is not to trust the mass-media. Regard it with automatic suspicion. Obviously I’m not talking about a hard news event, but all their “exalted” opinion pieces.
Isaiah 2:12 “The day of the Lord of hosts shall come upon everything proud and lofty, upon everything lifted up.”
What follows is some of the sermon or book titles of my own spiritual fathers. I cut my spiritual teeth on this lot, starting in the late 70s. Some of these great men of God would be scorned and rejected today. But their work stands with transforming power, for the few that find them.
These wonderful discipleship teachers of old, pulled the rug out from under you, condemned the hell out of you, and often times left you floored, in surrender to our Lord, in a manner that caused you to be so very thankful! I would trust my life with them!
My aim is to show that just in the titles alone, you can see that they are of another glorious world: (My library contains thousands more.)
Derek Prince: ●Fierce times are coming. ●I will shake all things – the nations, the church and Israel. ●Facing the last days without fear. ●Living in a world falling apart. ●Evil forces of the end times. ●The Spirit of Antichrist ●Disasters that are about to come upon the earth. ●Facing God’s judgment.
Watchman Nee: ●Not I but Christ. ●The messenger of the cross. ● A living sacrifice. ●The spirit of judgement. ●Salvation of the soul. ●Love not the world.
Charles Finney: ●How to be free from the world. ●Victory over the world.
AW Tozer: ●That incredible Christian. ●The divine conquest. Gems from Tozer.
Looking at the titles should give you an idea of the content. How many of these titles do you hear preached today? By the way I have ‘devoured’ these books, tapes and teachings and thousand more about eight times each. I have about 300,000 pages of hand written notes from them.
Be blessed as you prepare your heart mind and soul for the glorious appearing of our Lord – soon and very soon!
Edition 421: June 12th 2018
Peace, peace – destruction!
Today’s denuclearisation and peace summit between President Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un and the soon coming summit between Russia’s Putin and the US points to something much larger and more significant for the whole world.
The summit produced excitement, elation and emotion. It’s better to have peace than war.
The N. Korea summit took place on an island in Singapore called Sentosa. Previously, it was called, “The Island of Death!” Now, this new name means “Peace.” From death to peace is the inference!
The details of the summits although important, are not the main issue, and not what I’m referring to in this edition at all. I am speaking of a far more important, soon-coming summit!
1 Thessalonians 5:3-4 “When they say, peace and safety! Then sudden destruction comes upon them as labour pains, and they will not escape. But you brethren are not in the darkness that this Day should overtake you as a thief.”
Daniel 9:27 “Then he shall confirm (sign) a covenant with many for one week (of years)...”
The word “confirm,” in the verse above is Strong’s H1396 – “gabor.” The meanings are: “To make strong or prevail”, to “act in pride”, or to “show oneself mighty.”
Because of the context, and the other parallel verses on this subject, using the term, “signing a peace treaty at a summit” is perfectly legitimate.
Daniel 11:21 “In his place shall arise a vile person (antichrist) to whom they will not give the honour of royalty. He shall come in peaceably (making peace) and seize the kingdom (Israel) by intrigue.”
The actual event that reveals the antichrist, removes the restrainer, and begins the seven-year tribulation period, is a summit of some sort involving world powers and Israel, to bring peace to the Middle East and the world.
I am suggesting that the peace summit we have seen today between the US and N. Korea and the upcoming summit with Russia, are in fact forerunners to the big summit of Daniel 9:27, which will see the antichrist revealed and tribulation begin.
These current summits are to prep the world for the big one; and to get the world ready and used to the idea that world-peace is just a summit away!
Is world peace coming? Are we to see peace, unity, conciliation and pacification or distress and discord of nations, division, dissention, friction, and antagonism?
The role of world religion:
World religion, which is totally of a false spirit, will work hard to bring the antichrist onto the stage. The spirit of antichrist, which works with this spirit of error, does not deny God or the Son, but the Father – Son relationship. (1 John 2:22)
The antichrist arises in association with the church in some way. (1 John 2:18-19)
The antichrist is seen in his characteristics. He desires respect and worship. He is called “the son of perdition,” and the “man of sin,” and the “lawless one.”
The name “son of perdition,” given to both Judas and the antichrist, means “son of destruction.” Yeshua said to Satan, “Get behind Me Satan.” The original words mean: “Follow behind Me.” So, Satan follows the work of Yeshua and the church with his destruction!
“He (antichrist) exalts himself above all that is of God and is worshipped, so that he sits exalted in the temple...” (2 Thessalonians 2:3) He is revealed as being full of pride, demanding respect.
The only thing preventing the revealing and release of the antichrist is the cross of Calvary in the hearts of true believers. The cross-enlivened church, the dwelling place of the Spirit of God is the restrainer of the antichrist.
Most ecumenical churches and orthodox churches, and all Spirit-less churches are entertaining false spirits relating to Israel. It’s all because God has chosen Israel and Jerusalem and Satan is following behind with attempted destruction. His trap is called “entrapment”
Entrapment: “The act of tricking the gullible, through deception into committing a crime in order to secure their position.”
Today, the world is being entrapped by false beliefs and presumptions that the Palestinians have a right to Jerusalem and Israel. The world thinks that this brings in world peace!
We saw this entrapment at work in this terrible statement from the Nazi leader:
Hitler: “Make the lie big, keep saying it and eventually the masses will believe you.”
Tragically, many churches are blind to whom they are really serving!
Prepping for the antichrist:
I don’t know this for sure, but it is a very real possibility: If President Trump’s recent cancelling of the summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un was a bluff, meaning he was going to restore it, as he did, that was a brilliant strategy.
It had the effect of elevating Trump before the summit even began. It put him in a position of power to win and get what he wants, because of the strong-man implication.
President Trump is organising a major summit between himself and Russia’s Putin.
No, no, I’m not suggesting that Donald Trump will be the antichrist. That is impossible for numerous biblical reasons. But he may well be the final agent of high-stakes manoeuvrings, and the facilitator of the coming antichrist summit. He would now be seen as the one who can do it.
It will not be Europe who will organise and get the Daniel 9:27 summit on the go, because Israel does not trust Europe at all anymore – and rightly so.
Israel does trust the US now.
Perhaps we will not see the actual antichrist summit, due to the rapture, but we will see the summit coming, just as we saw the North Korea summit coming before it happened.
Big rocket-man (Trump) tamed little rocket man and is now the boss of the rockets!
The USA and the Third Temple:
What is a certainty is that there will be a temple on the Temple Mount in the tribulation period. It is required and spoken of in numerous verses.
What follows is a possible application of these verses. It is not cast in stone, just possible and probable. I put it before you for your consideration:
Isaiah 18:1-7 “Woe to the land shadowed with buzzing wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia, which sends ambassadors by sea...Go swift messengers, to a nation tall and smooth of skin, to a people terrible from their beginning, a nation powerful and treading down, whose land the rivers divide. All inhabitants of the world: When he lifts up a banner on the mountains you see it; and when he blows a trumpet you hear it...In that time a present (gift) will be brought to the Lord of hosts from a people tall and smooth of skin...To the place of the name of the Lord of hosts, (Lit=place of worship) to Mount Zion.”
Many commentators and analysts believe that these verses above are referring to the US because of the descriptions used, which could fit the US.
If this is so, the very last part of this discourse is important. The “gift” seems to be connected with the place of the name of the Lord which was most certainly the temple!
Here is another rather surprising verse. It may well have strong prophetic overtones. Again, this is implied and not cast in stone:
Zechariah 6:15 “Even those who are far away shall come and build the temple of the Lord. Then you shall know that the Lord of hosts has sent Me to you...”
Could this be referring to the soon-coming Third Temple – prophetically? If so, who are the “people from far away?”
It seems from these verses, and there are quite a few more, that the coming temple will be facilitated in some way by the US. It may well all be part of the upcoming antichrist summit!
Jerusalem is stirring:
Jerusalem is stirring. She is joining all creation, stirring in anticipation of the coming of the Lord. Even the wilderness is warming up for the greatest celebration of all time – the Millennium.
Distress of nations is coming first and fast. But the peace of God for those that are His is already here in spirit.
The Bible speaks of Jerusalem being surrounded by enemies. Then destruction is near. Today the battle is on for Jerusalem. She is surrounded! It’s not a military conflict yet, but that’s what’s coming soon.
Gaza and the Golan (Syrian side) have Jerusalem in their sights. The Vatican, UN, EU and many nations are in collusion. The liberals of the US have Jerusalem in their sights. The world’s mass-media have Jerusalem in their sights.
But it’s always wise to weigh up your odds of winning a war before you set out! Only a stupid, ignorant, nation would go out to war knowing that their eternal defeat is in their own hands!
Isaiah 29:5 “The multitude of your foes (Jerusalem) 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.”
Zechariah 12:9 “It shall be in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.”
The entire history of Israel is foretold in detail in Bible prophecy with not one miss! And every single prophecy was fulfilled literally! So, you want to war with Israel and Jerusalem? You fool of all fools!
The Jews are stirring:
Please consider the following in prayer and all seriousness. It is not just a collection of words on a page. It is most important for you and the Jews at this junction.
Jews are soon to start being saved en masse. The majority will be saved in the tribulation period, but many will be saved before. You as a believer have a role to play in prayer.
Christians are not to try and “Christianise” Jews or make them part of traditional churchianity with all its idols of Babylon. Christians with a heart for the Jews must know and distinguish between New Covenant doctrine (Hebrews 6:1-2) and church tradition, especially that which originates in Babylon, perpetuated by the Catholics.
The Jews know all about Babylon! It held them in captivity once before. The church must not take them there again.
Most Jews identify Christianity with Babylonian Christmas and Easter. Most believe Hitler was a Christian, because he often quoted Luther.
Some Jews think that Christians want to take them to destruction again! That’s thanks largely to the Catholic and other orthodox churches and those of replacement theology.
True Bible-based Christians have a lot to undo in this regard, which by the way, is part of the call of The Prophetic Scroll.
We are to turn Jews to the truth, with all error stripped out. That is where the Spirit of God dwells and operates.
The coming mass salvation of the Jews will be a supernatural work of the Spirit of God, but we are our Lord’s co-workers, this side of the tribulation.
When the Jews start seeking the Lord and many Christians continue to seek the Lord, we will find each other too. The “twain shall meet!” – Wonderful!
The rapture of the church:
This is a bit of pure and simple logic:
A profound truth is that in the seven-year tribulation, many people, Jews and Gentiles will be saved. Who will the agents of salvation be? If the church replaces Israel, it will be the church.
If the church is the main instrument of God in the tribulation, obviously, the church goes through the tribulation. But many scriptures, not just a few, speak very clearly of saved Jews being the agents of God in the tribulation!
The reason is because the church is missing – or should I say – truly and really found!
I have mentioned this many times before, and will continue to do so. Of all the arguments for a pre-tribulation rapture, and there are many, this is undisputable.
The peace accord of horror:
The coming peace summit that will reveal the antichrist will seem like the arrival of world peace. It will not! It will be made between Israel and the world - liar, deceiver, murderer and destroyer. Here is the doom of the summit:
Daniel 8:23-25 “In the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors have reached their fullness, a king shall arise (antichrist), having fierce features and understanding sinister schemes. His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power (It will be Satan’s). He shall destroy fearfully, and shall prosper and thrive. He shall destroy the mighty and also the holy people. (Jews and trib saints) Through his cunning he shall call cause deceit to prosper under his hand, and he shall magnify himself in his heart. He shall destroy many in their prosperity (Lit=peace). He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; but he will be broken without human hand.”
The world powers in their foolishness will finally be brought face to face with their intense stupidity and ignorance. They will be brought face to face with the truth of God’s word, which they have rejected in their Satan-led blind deception.
The world has seen Israel in their blindness and has a supernatural hatred for them because of the coming truth of prophecy – their light, sight and salvation!
Isaiah 43:8-9 “Bring out the blind people who have eyes and the deaf who have ears. Let all the nations be gathered together and let the people be assembled. Who among them can declare this and show us former things? Let them bring out their witnesses that they may be justified; or let them hear and say, ‘It is the truth.” You (Israel) are My witnesses says the Lord.”
So, in this incredible prophecy above, the blind nations of the world are asked if they can justify their foolish beliefs about Israel in the face of Bible prophecy. They will finally have no option but to admit that it is the truth!
Alas, too many will fulfil this prophecy above, and say: “It is the truth.” But it will be too late to miss the tribulation period.
Imagine how stupid you have to be to sign a covenant rejecting God’s ways and ensuring the launch of seven-years of absolute hell on earth, the likes of which have never been seen before, nor ever will be again! (Matthew 24:21)
To the shock and shame of the world, there is a new world empire coming. It will be headquartered in Jerusalem. It is called the Millennium! Yeshua, the King of kings and Lord of lords will be the supreme head. Satan and his antichrist empire will be cast out to hell.
The role of the mass-media:
God sends hunters and fishermen to bring His people in and back to the land of Israel. (Jeremiah 16:16) Satan sends the Palestinians to hunt, and fish for God’s people and to replace them with themselves. Satan uses his hunters in the UN, the EU and many nations of the world and of course the mass-media.
The problem today is that collective, worldwide group-speak and false belief-bias about Israel is fuelling the attacks. Group-speak without God in the equation, becomes Satan-speak.
The mass-media is Satan’s stooge, pawn and puppet!
If Israel were to be defeated, world apostate religion, and Islam would triumph. Of course the media can’t see that because they are working, blindly for it! But God saw it thousands of years ago and His scribes wrote and warned against it all.
Did you know that there are some incredible verses in the Bible showing the soon coming total destruction of Islam at the hands of the Jews? I will share them with you soon.
The reason for the coming tribulation:
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.”
Okay, so now we see that one of the main reasons for the coming tribulation period is the breaking of God’s covenant with Israel. The new antichrist peace summit will be its replacement!
Here is God’s peace-“summit” with Israel:
Genesis 17:7-8 “I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant to be God to you and your descendants after you. Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession, and I will be their God.”
So, look beyond the peace summits. Their message is – the big summit is coming soon.
Satan’s greatest act ever, will be a covenant of peace made with Israel. It will be the work of the beast, the dragon, the sneaky snake, the deceiver of the whole world.
World peace through the antichrist produces world tribulation. The tribulation period, produces world peace – the Millennium. Hell will be the home of God’s enemies. The world’s mass-media, you can say “Oops” now!
Romans 11:15 “If their (Israel) being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?”
If you could have world peace now, there would have been no need for the cross and no need for the Second Coming. There would be no need for Israel. It is Israel in the Millennium under Messiah that will be the manifestation of world peace.
The present evil age must end with either the destruction of Israel or the destruction of Satan. There will be a big fight! Amazingly, the victor has in fact already won – according to prophecy!
I took the background picture of Augrabies Falls – the waterfall in the desert, while it was in flood, and the King Protea in my garden, and merged them together.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
