- 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.
17th May 2019
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 450: January 1st 2019
We get ready, the world get’s “ready”
The Bible verse for the year 2019 is:
Proverbs 28:4 “If you forsake the word of God you will praise the wicked.”
That verse above, can be applied to so many situations. I am applying it to 2019
Isaiah 30:8 “Now go and write it before them on a tablet, and note it on a scroll that it may be for time to come – forever and ever.” (This verse was foundational for this ministry – still is.)
We get ready because we see our Lord’s coming getting closer every day. We also see the world’s god, Satan getting closer. The world gets ready for the antichrist in total blindness. They don’t even acknowledge his existence, nor see our Lord’s soon coming.
The unsaved don’t know that they are getting ready! They don’t know that spiritual forces of wickedness are leading them, and driving them down, down, down. They “praise the wicked.”
Their “readiness” leaves them unready, empty, exposed and open for the coming slaughter!
The year ahead for the world:
The defining moment of 2018 is the announcement of the US withdrawal from Syria.
It has profound 2019 implications. It will result in a most important war prophetically. It will end in the destruction of Damascus, (Isaiah17) which will lead to the Ezekiel 38&39 war dubbed WW111, which will be just before or just into the tribulation period.
As regular readers know, I place the rapture of the true church here, before the tribulation.
Both of these wars, and others prophesied for this time period, will involve Israel and see the start of her large scale spiritual eye-opening and veil-lifting.
2 Chronicles 20:29 “The fear of God was on all those kingdoms of those countries when they heard that Lord had fought against the enemies of Israel.”
This will not be a year of love and peace for the world. It will be a year of hate and war – intensified. Hatred by the unsaved for the saved, and for Israel, will escalate dramatically.
This will be the year of war! It will be war amongst nations, war against Israel, war against the true church and its truth, and war for your soul.
This will be the year of an increase in witchcraft and occult activity of various sorts. These satanic activities have the goal of controlling people. Much of it will filter into the compromised church.
“Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft.” (1 Samuel 15:22-23) Where there is rebellion to God witchcraft follows. This is the lot for the end-time world.
Witchcraft is a cursed work in the church too. (Galatians 3:1-10) “Who has bewitched you?” It substitutes grace for rules. The result of all manifestations of legalistic witchcraft in the church is a curse, not just an error. You don’t get free without specific spiritual deliverance.
Man thinks that man’s problems are due to his environment, both on a personal and a macro level. But the truth is; all man’s problems are due to sin in the heart and this is increasing dramatically in these days.
This will be the year the mass-media manifests the beast in its heart shamelessly and blatantly. The world is programming its own, through the media, with its own “truth” emanating from the “father of lies.”
For world peace, the world’s way, the cross which is exclusive, must be removed and the law of God must be cast down so that the law of the world and its god can come in.
The law of the world is: “Do what you will” and “Me now.”
This is going to be a year of upheavals in the natural world like never before.
The only solution is the cross.
The year ahead for believers:
John 12:13 “They took branches from the palm trees and went out to meet Him crying, ‘Hosanna, blessed is the king of Israel that comes in the name of the Lord.”
●Hosanna (Strong’s G 5614): The word comes from the Hebrew root word - Strong’s H 3467, “Yasha.” Meanings: Salvation, set us free, victory, preserved, avenged!
The palm tree and branches are biblical symbols of victory, triumph and eternal life. Do you see how the symbol of the palm ties up with the word meanings above?
Hosanna is forever tied to our Lord’s entrance to Jerusalem.
2019 will mark the entrance of our Lord into Jerusalem, not physically yet, but by His Spirit in relation to His saving work with Israel. Hosanna to the Lord!
This will be the year for many Christians to experience “Hosanna” in its fullness.
As we get near to Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets) we will see and know if all theses word meanings above are about play out in rapture. I think so!
Revelation 7:9 “After these things I looked and behold, a great multitude, which no one could number, of the nations, tribes, peoples and tongues, standing before the throne of the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands.”
Palm branches are etched into the Millennium temple (not the third temple) Ezekiel 40 – 44.
Many believers will move forward in leaps and bounds with our Lord this year, the wave of salvation sweeping the eastern half of the world, and the Middle East will increase.
Job 36:7 “He does not withdraw His eyes from the righteous; but they are on the throne with kings, for He has seated them there forever, and they are exalted.”
Many sleeping Christians will awake with a huge jolt, but others will go to satanic sleep!
Many will backslide and fall away due to the intense pressures of this year. (Applied pressure strengthens some, and causes some to give up.)
Backsliding always begins in the heart.
Job 8:12-13 “While the plant is yet green and not cut down, it withers before any other plant. So are the paths of all who forget God. The hope of the hypocrite shall perish.”
The judgement of rewards for believers will show how much you have been conformed to Him.
This will be the year of a clash of truths -The real truth and the watered down compromised truth, which is a real lie. The true wisdom of God has stood forever and will continue to stand. All those who mess with it will fall.
1 Corinthians 2:7-8 “We speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew, for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.”
We have been hidden in Messiah. (Colossians 3:3) When He appears we will be like Him. (1 John 3:2) We will appear fully saved, body, mind and spirit and full of glory.
Be careful of the company you keep! It does have effects on you. Be careful of the customs and traditions you participate in – they do have effects on you. Even the city you live in may have effects on your spiritual progress.
It is vital as a believer, especially a young believer, to have a spiritual father, be it a church a ministry or a person.
The greatest problem in the Christian world today – by far, is ignorance of the word of God, inspired and led by the Spirit. This creates an ill-prepared and equipped army in the face of the biggest troubles ever to hit the world.
The root cause is no fear of the Lord.
Don’t water down the fear of the Lord or change its meaning as many do. You will never even see the benefits if you do. When you put all the verses together relating to the fear of the Lord, it will produce in you: The terror of the Lord, trembling, repentance, and brokenness.
Multitudes of incredible, deeply rooted benefits stem from the fear of the Lord.
You don’t go to heaven in the rapture because you believed everything correctly about the rapture! You go to heaven because your heart is right. Your heart can be right with God from day one of salvation, while other things get in line and follow along.
One of the beautiful aspects, of the glory of eschatology is not just the coming of the Lord, but it is also the destruction of the final enemy which is death itself and Satan’s fruits of sin, temptation, disease, war, hatred, murder, lies, and all things not of God.
Isn’t it wonderful when you meet someone and discover that they’re a brother or sister in the Lord? It’s as though you’ve known them all your life. Then you discover that they know nothing about eschatology and have no interest because their church has formed them that way! It spoils your day.
It’s becoming quite rare to find people with a fully open heart to God and all of His word.
Treasure people that strike you in the heart! It is God’s doing.
The year ahead – Admonitions and warnings:
As the birth of our Lord approached, the message from the prophets was “Repent for the kingdom is at hand.” (Matthew 3:2) That is the case now. There is no neutrality. Repent or perish. (Luke 13:5)
Repentance, much like the fear of the Lord, produces many wonderful things including stability.
This year will see a flood of false prophets, false teachings and heresy, all trying to attack God in you.
Beware of those with private and new interpretations of scripture, especially when they contradict other doctrines or verses. Beware of those who blindly follow other blind guides. “Fools feed on foolishness.” (Proverbs 15:14)
Beware of new doctrines. New doctrines are always false!
Beware of those in pride seeking admiration. They and their wolflings are in grave danger.
Beware of all teaching and doctrine that interferes with Gods’ call and plan for Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews. In many cases it’s subliminal.
Beware of all ministries that are silent on God’s plans for Israel. Run, run as fast as you can to get away from all ministries of replacement theology! If you get on the wrong side of God on this issue at this time, it will have eternal consequences for you!
Don’t join or follow a cut-off, severed branch – there are many, especially on YouTube!
Beware of ministries not centred in the New Covenant epistles. Beware of ministries of pride, in legalism and trying to bring you under the law. They are cursed, and will get worse.
Beware of ministries that won’t touch eschatology.
Beware of complacency with God. We are at the very tail end of the grace of God in terms of a dispensation. We are close to the transition time to wrath. God can, does, and will cause an entire rebellious nation to fall into greater error! Have a look at the verse below!
Isaiah 30:28 “His breath is like an overflowing stream, which reaches 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.
The “bridle” above, is their own pride and rebellion to God.
God’s response to the world’s rebellion is most politically incorrect. He laughs at the nations raging at Him. (Psalm 2:1-5) He does not open a dialogue of discussion, After a good laugh at them, He destroys them in His wrath!
Beware of love and good: The modern humanism-based church has set up good as God and love as a means to salvation.
People talk a lot about love. They say – all you need is love. Then everything will be okay.
People say that love is of God and God is love, so that’s all we need. They are right, but so wrong! Love is a person. In fact more than that, love is a crucified and resurrected person. If God is love, without the cross that love is hatred and ends in hell.
What is love? The Bible says: “Greater love has no man than he lay down his life for another.” So love is the cross of Calvary – the only, exclusive instrument of salvation.
Goodness and love are fruits. Fruits do not save you because they didn’t die for you.
The new church in line with new world thinking, does not recognise absolute truth. It has no fear of the Lord. It has no division between the holy and the unholy. It has no repentance, no obedience. It believes more in Santa Clause than the cross of Calvary! It is inoffensive to all but God.
There is an amazing principle of deterioration revealed in Ezekiel 22:25-29. It shows corruption setting in from the prophets to priests to princes to the people! How amazing, and how true!
It’s good to always bear in mind that as goes the spiritual, so goes the natural!
Israel is awakening:
Proverbs 25:11 “A word fitly (timely) spoken and in due season is like apples of gold.”
Israel, here is your apple of gold:
Israel, it is your time. Your enemies surround you, but your God is with you and for you and on your side. You, together with your God, will have the last laugh! (Psalm 2:4)
Psalm 17:8-9 “Keep me as the apple of Your eye; hide me under the shadow of Your wings, from the wicked who oppress me, from my deadly enemies who surround me.”
Zechariah 2:8 “He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you (Israel) touches the apple of His eye.”
The “church” never defended the Jews when they were persecuted, particularly in the Holocaust. In fact, the Catholic church murdered millions of Jews in the inquisitions.
The silent churches have shown their colours – the flag of surrender and capitulation to the world and its god. (Luke 11:23)
Now, you spineless churches - don’t stand in Israel’s way when they, with God’s backing, defend themselves! In fact many churches today are stumbling blocks to Israel.
I see many believe that the USA will not stand with Israel when she is in conflict. I do not believe that. Yes President Trump has ordered the Syria pullout. But when things really heat up the US will be there. Either way, Israel will prevail.
Ezekiel 37:10 “So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them (dry bones), and they lived and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.”
Note in this amazing verse above, of the valley of dry bones (Israel in rebellion) coming to life, we see more than that. They arise as a great army. The timing is not coincidental.
In 1948 one day after Israel’s miracle birth in a day, (Isaiah 66:8) five Arab armies attacked her in what became known as the War of Independence. Israel, surprisingly won with a rag-tag volunteer army. This was an exact parallel of the Egyptian armies pursuing the children of Israel immediately after they were let go by Pharaoh.
This will be the case again as Israel comes to salvation, beginning in one day. The world will immediately attack, beginning the seven-year tribulation in which the whole world will lose.
Remember that God directed David’s stone to the head of Goliath, killing him. The same will be true as God defends Israel in coming conflicts.
The two verses below show the tragedy of Israel’ rebellion causing them to become a “reproach” and then the spectacular turn around as she is regathered and comes back to life:
Daniel 9:16-17 “O Lord, according to Your righteousness, I pray, let Your anger and Your fury be turned away from Your city, Jerusalem, Your holy mountain; because of our sins and the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and Your people have become a reproach to all who are around us...Cause Your face to shine on Your sanctuary, which is desolate.”
Zephaniah 3:20 “At that I will bring you back and gather you. For I will give you (Israel) fame and praise among all the peoples of the earth...”
Let’s have a look at another incredible portion of end-time scripture relating to how God will bring Israel back, save her and use her as an instrument of destruction and war on many nations:
Micah 4:11-13 “Many nations have gathered against you (Israel), who say ‘Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion.’ But they do not know the thoughts of the Lord, nor understand His counsel. He will gather them like sheaves to the threshing floor. Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion; for I will make your horn iron, and I will make your hooves of bronze; you shall beat in pieces many peoples. I will consecrate their gain to the Lord, and their substance to the Lord of the whole earth.”
“Iron” in the verse above is a type of crushing strength in the Bible and “Brass” a type of judgement.
Jeremiah 31:4 “Again, I will build you, and you shall be rebuilt, O virgin of Israel! You shall again be adorned with your tambourines, and shall go forth in the dances of those who rejoice (Lit= dance of the merrymakers.)
Isaiah 35:10 “The ransomed of the Lord will return and come to Zion with singing, with everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.”
Please don’t ever forget this simple, yet most profound collection of just a few words. These few words are more important than all the books on world history ever written! These few words will have massive, eternal consequences for those that believe them and those that reject them:
Israel:●Elected ●Rebelled ●Rejected ●Regathered ●Repented ●Accepted ●Used of God.
►Pray, praise and proclaim the word of God .Prayer must be warlike but with tears! Be vigilant, watchful, defensive and offensive to the enemy in your prayer.
Be eagerly expectant of the Lords coming. That rules out the majority!
Daniel 11:32 “...The people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.”
Eschatology is absolutely vital for your spiritual health. It is becoming more and more significant and important now, even as it is attacked and cast down.
To ignore prophecy is to ignore God. There is a great danger in ignorance of prophecy. “If you won’t hear Yeshua the prophet – you will be utterly destroyed! “(Acts 3:23)
Our rewards are compared to a number of things in the Bible. One of them is a wedding garment! Some will have a pure white wedding garment full of big holes!
Hosanna, hosanna – many blessing to you!
Strength for the year! This is a mix of an elephant and baobab tree picture of mine.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
