Shabbat Shalom to all!
Some mistakes and presumptions:
My job is not just to go with the flow. It is to help, inspire and lead us into all truth. That involves identifying error.
My job is to stick a sword in your heart (sometimes) and make you feel good about it.
In these days, doctrinal error is a pandemic. It need not be so for you. Our God is not a God of confusion. Satan is!
There are doctrinal errors that are not of importance. Others can rock your faith!
Some are a real game changer, when you see the truth in them!
Here are a few end-time errors doing the rounds today. Some are important and some not so:
●Without the centrality of the cross you can get by: No you can’t. This is the single biggest error ever, which will send you on a roller-coaster to hell. Without it and its personal application, in daily cross-bearing, you will be left powerless and under the deception of your own power of self and human reasoning.
●The absence of the baptism in the Spirit will get you by: It will get you by as a failure. The application of and use of the gifts and the armour of God is an error that will see you deceived and defeated in these days – for sure!
●Mistake = “The great apostasy”: The term is not in the Bible! (2 Thessalonians 2:3) “The falling away,” correctly interpreted means the departure, or removal of the church in rapture. (See edition 517 for more) Some other verses do speak of deteriorating faith amongst certain churches.
●Mistake= “No one knows the day or hour” of the rapture: The term is not in the Bible! (Matthew 24:36) “Of this day and hour, no one knows,” is the correct term. If you read all the surrounding verses, they refer to the condition in the tribulation period. In context, it has nothing at all to do with the rapture – go and read the chapter, not just the verse.
●Mistake= The rapture is imminent; it could happen anytime as there are no signs for it: This is wrong. There are numerous signs for of the tribulation period and the dispensation change from the church age to the final seven years. A pre-tribulation rapture therefore has all of those signs as well.
If the rapture / tribulation start does not occur on a feast of trumpets, it would leave that feast unfulfilled and the remaining ones out of sync. That alone is a huge weight of evidence. The pattern of exact, to the day, literal fulfilment of the prophetic aspect of the feasts is clearly revealed in the fulfilments of the previous five feasts.
●Mistake= “The days of the tribulation will be shortened”: (Matthew 24:22) No they will not be shortened. The word usage means that the days of the tribulation period are cut out in time. The seven year period is the cut-out period. It does not mean actual days will not be 24 hours anymore. (Numerous commentaries support this)
●Mistake= “End-time knowledge shall increase: (Daniel 12:4) this, quite simply means that knowledge of these particular end-time events will increase as they near. General knowledge of all sorts, expanding over time, is no sign at all. It is obvious.
●Mistake= “The antichrist will confirm an existing peace treaty / covenant: (Daniel 9:27) so, what covenant would that be? There is no existing seven-year covenant, which identified the antichrist, which involves the rebuilt temple, or fits the requirements of Daniel 9:27 and others.
The word means to make a “strong covenant.” The Amplified Bible has it right – read it.
●Mistake= The Abrahamic Accords are the Daniel 9:27 peace treaty, because they use the term, “peace and safety”. That is pure short-sighted hogwash, presented largely by the always wrong brigade. (I have much more, shocking and very surprising things to share on this. I just need to find a place to fit it in.)
●Mistake= The cause of end-time judgements: There is a great variety of opinions here, some are most reasonable, some are not, and some are plainly insane. The general consensus among the mature, long standing pastors and teachers, which I fully concur with, is that the reasons are that “light” and “salt” (the church) has gone dim relating to the worldwide pandemic of abortion, homosexuality and other sins of rebellion to the word of God.
The insane presumption is that God has brought all the world troubles, like the corona virus on the world, because Trump divided Israel. Trump has not divided Israel, the “Deal of the Century” has not been ratified and is null and void.
To say that God brought the virus and other judgments on the world because Trump divided Israel is to play right into the hands of the devil and make a mockery of God. It is misdirection away from the real causes.
●Mistake= “The blood will run to the horses bridles for 1600 stadia (1 stadia =630 ft. The length is 1,008,000 ft.) (Revelation 14:20) This does not mean that the blood will run that deeply during the wrath of God. It is physically impossible for blood to run that far and deep.
The verse likens the situation to a horse trampling the grapes under a tribulum (wine press), which gets splattered with grape juice up to the horses bridles. (Isaiah 63:2, Revelation 19:13)
●Mistake= End-time signs are for the church: This is a widespread and deeply entrenched error. The truth is that end-time signs are primarily for Israel, and the unbeliever, and occur within Israel’s divided dispensation (Old Covenant and seven-year tribulation.) True signs are supernatural events. The church is not to be led by signs! We are led by the Spirit of God. If it’s a true supernatural sign, it will influence and draw people in to be saved. If it’s a lying sign it will wreck the faith of many, when discovered as a lie. (The classic was the Revelation 12-sign – lie, which wrecked the faith of many when it failed.)
Bear in mind that biblical truth roars. It bites and devours as it confronts. It also comforts and edifies, when you’re on the right side. The Jewish Lion and the Lamb is the essence of truth! It is not to be taken lightly, trivialised or changed. Truth is the Lamb and the Lion, not the Catholic ham and bunny.
If you are out in the wild African bush, there is a continuous symphony and chorus of natures beautiful sounds. When a nearby lion begins to roar, all else falls silent. I have observed that personally many times – it’s incredible. When the King speaks even the air reverberates and others shut up.
Today we are not seeing very much talk or teaching on the growing proliferation of demonic activity. This sets up many for defeat.
These are the days in which you need full on spiritual warfare.
The message of the word to the world must be alive with the Spirit of God, and when rightly applied it will convict, rebuke, alarm you, disturb you, and pull the carpet out from under you.
Soon coming judgement could be the day of your greatest rejoicing ever, or the beginning of you eternal regret. It will be one or the other, you can bank on that and you will not wiggle out of it.
The prophetic word is a navigator in troubled times. But today the prophetic word is being assaulted from without and within.
Edition 435: September 18th 2018
O Jerusalem, Jerusalem!
Matthew 23:37-39 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I have wanted to gather you as a hen gathers her chicks, but you were not willing! ‘See, your house is left to you desolate.’ I say to you, ‘you shall see Me no more, until you say, Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.”
Romans 11:25-26 “I do not desire brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you be wise in your own opinion, that hardening in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so, all Israel will be saved.”
Replacement theology teaches that you must take all the verses applying to Israel and Jerusalem and replace them with the church. In other words, God has no specific, defined dispositional plan for the Jews. They must all just become happy, ham-eating, Easter bunny-hugging, Christians going Ho, ho ho on Christmas day! I say Voetsak! (Afrikaans for “get out of here.”)
But it is actually the Jews who have replaced their own Jewish Messiah. They have rejected Him and chosen dead religion, humanism, or all the philosophies of the world instead!
The Jews have slapped our Lord in the face!
We can’t prevent being slapped on the cheek. It is turning the other cheek that is our choice.
The Jews have slapped the Lord in the face for nearly 2000 years. He is now preparing to turn the other cheek! He has already been pierced and crucified for mankind. What mercy this is, now to turn back to His people who rejected Him!
The Jews will soon, suddenly know who this Yeshua is, and they will dare not raise a hand or a voice against Him in hostility ever again. They will find glorious forgiveness and love.
It is the reasonable way of the world to retaliate when offended. That makes our Lord most unreasonable and this is perhaps one of the reasons the world hates Him.
Every knee, willing or not, will bow to the King of kings. Israel will soon be ready to willingly bow the knee to our Lord, as He turns the other cheek. Tears of love will fill our Lord’s eyes as He sees that His own "other cheek" will now be kissed and not slapped by His own people this time! (Psalm 2:12)
Bowing the knee to someone is humbling and sometimes even humiliating, but when we bow to our Lord it elevates us and we grow tall in His grace, with eternal effects.
This grand plan of restoration involves God’s covenants to the people, the land and the city.
The Davidic Covenant:
This is an unconditional covenant promise made by God to David. The promise involves David’s “seed,” the Jewish Messiah who will be established in Jerusalem forever. (2 Samuel 7:10-13)
This covenant is also called the Jerusalem covenant and as such includes all the promises of God to the Jews relating to Jerusalem as their God-given city. It would include the rebuilding of the temple. This is why there is so much conflict around Jerusalem.
2 Chronicles 6:6 “I (God) have chosen Jerusalem that My name may be there; and I have chosen David to be over My people, My people – Israel.”
1 Kings 11:36 “My servant David may always have a lamp before Me in Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen for Myself to put My name there.”
And of course we see Satan’s involvement and God’s rebuke. It’s a pitty the media are blind to this:
Zechariah 3:2 “The Lord said to Satan, The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you!
Daughter of God, daughter of a whore:
The daughters of God:
The “daughter of Zion” is a term for the offspring of Israel. It relates to the Jewish people in general. The “daughter of Jerusalem” is a term describing the Jews as well, but it is more specific including Jerusalem, as part of God’s covenant promises.
Luke 23:28 “Yeshua, turning to them said, ‘Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for Me, but weep for yourselves and for your children.”
Zechariah 9:9 “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, lowly and riding on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey.”
Here we see glorious salvation coming to the daughters:
Zephaniah 3:14-15 “Sing, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O Israel! Be glad and rejoice with all your heart, O daughter of Jerusalem. The Lord has taken away your judgements; He has cast out your enemy. The King of Israel, the Lord is in your midst; you shall see disaster no more.”
Zechariah 13:1 “In that day a fountain shall be opened for the house of David and for the inhabitants of Jerusalem, for sin and uncleaness.”
The daughters of a whore:
Now, I’m going to make some people angry:
Who is the “daughter of Babylon” as spoken of numerous times in the Bible?
Babylon, the religious system, is clearly defined as the church of Rome (and other similar orthodox churches) This is the “whore of Babylon”, the “mother of harlots.” (Revelation 17 and 18) The daughter of the whore is none other than the Protestant churches of the Reformation. The mostly denominational, Spirit-less churches.
As we look back into history we see the “Mother of Harlots” giving birth to her daughter. These Reformation churches rebelled against Rome, closing the dark ages, and brining in the spiritual age of enlightenment, the reformation, and industrial revolution.
They restored salvation by grace and faith to the church. But they could not shake off the results of being “raped” by Rome. Although the reformation was a work of God, it was incomplete and continued the Babylonian, pagan practises of their “rapists”. The overall, behind the scenes work of Babylon in these churches is replacement theology, and coming against God’s work with Israel.
The desire of Satan was to stamp out the early church by persecution. He failed and went on to his attempt to stamp out the prophesied work of God with Israel. Satan produced the Babylon religion. He produced the counterfeit church of Rome which was all manifest in the worst time of mass torture and mass murder of Jews ever, in the Catholic-led inquisitions.
The religion of Babylon morphed into the religion of Rome becoming a stench in the nostrils of God, which is just why it was prophesied to be the “mother of whores.” But mothers have daughters, don't they?
The break-away daughters never got rid of their Roman rapists! They flirted with paganism and welcomed it in. God, in His mercy used these churches anyway. But those days are over!
Have you noticed how evil many of these dead, denominational churches have become? Have you noticed how anti-Semitic and full of replacement theology, many have become? Have you noticed how many of the God-instituted laws and convocations of the Bible they now come against?
It’s not my desire to name any churches besides the Catholic ring leaders of the “depths of Satan”, because, thankfully, many churches are seeing the light, and changing. Others will do so soon too.
Isaiah 47:1-11 “Come down and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon. Sit on the ground without a throne, for you shall no more be called tender and delicate...Your shame shall be seen. I will take vengeance and will not arbitrate with man. As for our Redeemer, the Lord of hosts is His name, the Holy One of Israel. Sit in silence, and go into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans (Babylonians) for you shall no longer be called The Lady of Kingdoms. I was angry with My people and have given them into your hand. You showed them no mercy and you said, ‘I shall be a lady forever.’ But these two things will come to you in a moment, in one day; the loss of children and widowhood. They shall come upon you in their fullness...You have said in your heart, ‘I am and there is no one else besides me...And desolation shall come upon you suddenly.”
Zechariah 2:6-12 “Up, up, flee from the land of the north, says the Lord; for I have spread you abroad like the four winds of heaven. Get up Zion! Escape you who dwell with the daughter of Babylon...He who touches you (Israel) touches the apple of His eye...Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion! For behold I am coming and will dwell in your midst...Many nations shall be joined to the Lord in that day, and they shall become My people. Then you will know that the Lord has sent Me to you...and the Lord will again choose Jerusalem.”
Do you see cursed replacement theology, now the anchor of the daughters of Babylon, being rejected in these verses above?
Babylon, Rome, and the daughters of Babylon are all corrupted. Do you want to know what the single evidence is of a daughter of Babylon becoming a daughter of Zion or Jerusalem is? It is that church rejecting all forms of replacement theology, and becoming pro-God’s work with the Jews, Jerusalem and Israel in these days.
These things are all extremely important right now. They are all full of drama, severity and excitement. They will all come to pass just as they are written! We will see big things even in the next few days!
Psalm 137:8 “O daughter of Babylon, who are to be destroyed, happy shall he be who repays you as you have served us (Israel)...”
Revelation 18:2 “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a habitation of demons...”
Revelation 18:9-10 “The kings of the earth who committed fornication with and lived luxuriously with her (Babylon the Great, mother of harlots) will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning, standing at a distance for fear of her torment saying, alas, alas, that great city Babylon, the mighty city! For in one hour your judgement has come.”
●Babylon is the mother of harlots, the city of Satan. ●Jerusalem is the city of God and will soon be the Holy City! Where do live in heart? Babylon, Rome or Jerusalem?
We must see Babylon as fallen and never to rise again. Not as many do – being rebuilt. Those that believe Babylon will be rebuilt are generally those that practise the pagan traditions of Babylon like Christmas and Easter.
Jeremiah 51:8 “Babylon has suddenly fallen and been destroyed...”
Jeremiah 50:39-40 “...Babylon shall be inhabited no more forever, nor shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation. It will be as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, no one shall be there.”
So, in these verses (and many others) we see the fall of Babylon the city, never to rise again and the prophesied application by God of religious Babylon as well as socio / political Babylon – the modern world-system.
No, the city has not been rebuilt – look it up!
Here in the Bible we have mothers, fathers, sons, daughters and whores! It is important to identify them. Those of God are dancing the divine dance and those of the devil are dancing the despicable dance even now.
It’s wise to love and choose what God loves!
Exodus 4:22 “Thus says the Lord: ‘Israel is My son, My firstborn.”
Hosea 11:1 “When Israel was a child, I loved him...”
Oh, yes and let’s not leave out the sheep of the settlements:
Ezekiel 34:11-13 “Thus says the Lord God: Indeed I Myself will search for My sheep and seek them out...I will bring them out from the peoples and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land; I will feed them on the mountains of Israel, in the valleys and in all the places (Lit= settlements) of the country.”
The heavenly Jerusalem, the city of eternal peace:
Our citizenship is in heaven – the heavenly Jerusalem, made and constructed by our Lord with pure gold, silver and jewels. It has incredible trees producing 12 types of pure fruit. It has birds, animals and really weird, crazy, but holy flying, multi-winged creatures. It has dogs and cats too.
It has a bunch of things so glorious and wonderful, we can’t even imagine!
The end time kingdoms of the world are made of “clay and iron” which does not mix. (And it stinks of dung!) Babylon represents the world. It was made of man-made clay bricks. It is full of sin and all sorts of abominations!
Ezekiel 20:41-42 “I will accept you (Jews) as a sweet smelling aroma when I bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you have been scattered; and I will be hallowed in you before the Gentiles...”
So many intellectual idiots of this day are trying to work for world peace. They come up with all sorts of clever, futile, hogwash ideas. Some churches are striving for world peace. They will all fail, ●firstly because they are blinded by their pride (Psalm 10:4), ●secondly because they’re blinded by God (James4:6, Proverbs 26:12, 2 Thessalonians 2:11) and ●thirdly because they are blinded by Satan (2 Corinthians 4:4). They think they know better than God.
►You can’t build peace with unity or love. You can’t build peace with any sort of economic, social, or political model. You can only build peace with righteousness.
Let me say that again: You can only build peace with righteousness. That is on a personal level, a larger family level, a national level and a world level.
Psalm 72:2-3 “He will judge Your people with righteousness...and the mountains shall bring peace by righteousness.”
Isaiah 32:17 “The work of righteousness will be peace and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever.”
Jerusalem will be pure and holy in the Millennium. The New Jerusalem will be closely associated, but flying above it. (No wonder some people think we are crazy!)
There is glorious beauty in true holiness.
The New Jerusalem will be The Holy City. It will be inhabited by saints! Do you know what a saint is?
“Saint”: Strong’s G40 – Hagios. Meanings: Holy, pure, most holy thing.
So, it will be you, you holy thing, living in a holy city forever! How ‘bout them apples!
1 Peter 2:9-10 “You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people, His own special people. He called you out of darkness into His marvellous light.”
“Peculiar”: Strong’s G4041. Meanings: Distinct and noticeable, separate, to be possessed by God.
Are you noticeable by your distinctness? Are you possessed?
True holiness is a unique aspect of the character and nature of God, with no parallels. How good it is to be peculiar!
Isaiah 52:1 “Awake, awake! Put on your strength, O Zion; put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city! For the uncircumcised and the unclean, shall no longer come to you.”
Revelation 21:1 “I John saw the holy city, the New Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.”
The tribulation terror:
The removal of restrainer is directly linked to the immediate release of the antichrist.
You can’t have the antichrist present with the restrainer here at the same time.
Personally, in the past, I’ve worked on programs to save the endangered cheetah and endangered species. I’ve stood right next to a capture box with a wild cheetah inside - the fastest land animal on earth, as it was being released to its new environment. The restraining door slides open, and it’s gone in a flash! No more restraint!
There will still be limited operations of the Holy Spirit in the tribulation.
As with the cheetah, we will see the preparations coming for the release of the antichrist. This will be when the rapture takes place and the tribulation begins.
By the way, I’ve learnt more spiritually, from lions roaring out in the wilds, and from cheetahs charging through the bush, from birds in my garden and all my dearly departed dogs, than from most churches in regards to eschatology.
The restrainer of sin, the Spirit indwelt church, will be removed. There will be no restraint of evil. Under those conditions, things will be unimaginably terrible. The Bible’s numerous descriptions of this time are an eye-opener of shock and awe!
After the Second Coming as we go into the Millennium there will also be no restrainer! Satan the hater of holiness will be bound. There will be no restraint of holiness, glory, wonder, magnificence and all things godly – forever! The Bible’s numerous descriptions of this time are an eye-opener!
Eyes to see:
The eye sees for the whole body. So, if your eye is bad your whole body is in danger! You are in danger of deep end-time darkness - deception! (Matthew 6:22-23)
Proverbs 13:20 “He who walks with wise men shall be wise, but he who associates with self-confident fools, will be a fool himself, and shall suffer, and be destroyed for it.”
Isaiah 50:4 “The Lord God has given me the tongue of the learned...He awakens my ear to hear as the learned.”
Here are a few nice happy, loving, beautiful comments from our Lord to put in your promise box:
“Woe to you, blind guides.” “Fools and blind.” “You blind Pharisees.” “You are dark and blind.”
So, it seems to me that our Lord is not very impressed with spiritual blindness and foolishness!
A major aspect of the Christian life now, and it is intensifying, is conflict as we endure. We really need to see clearly and to have courage to stand securely in these days of deep deceptions.
The revelation of the things of God in a believer is His measure of your value. This revelation establishes your authority over your own life and others, with who you have influence.
Numbers 16:3-5 “Moses fell on his face and said, ‘the Lord will show who are His and who are holy.’”
Know this one thing, if you are saved now, you will be living in the New Jerusalem, and it just may be a lot a sooner than most people think! It won’t be New York, London, Paris or Blikkiesfontein, to which the Christians of Blikkiesfontein say, “Thank the Lord for that!”
Colossians 3:3-4 “For you died and your life is hidden with Messiah in God. When Messiah appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.”
We are seated in heavenly places – the heavenly, New Jerusalem (Ephesians 2:5-7) – not Rome!
Only the wisdom of God makes you eternally wise! May your name be sealed in the eternal book of life forever and ever!
I took the background picture from a chopper flying over Cathedral Peak in the Drakensberg Mountains, one misty morning and the baobab tree, one misty morning in the Limpopo region. This is called “the communion tree”
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
