- US Ambassador to Israel says Trump will not evict Jews from Judea and Samaria (so-called West Bank) Pompeo says US “fully prepared for military action in Middle East.”
- US Democratic candidate, Elizabeth Warren plans to withhold aid to Israel because of the “settlements.” The anti-Israel bias is showing in the Dems again!
- Netanyahu gives up effort to form a government on his 70th birthday and returns mandate to President Rivlin, who will now give the mandate to Gantz for a try.
- Syrian Kurds call on Israel to take action against Turkey! Pompeo says Trump ready to use military force against Turkey if needed.
- Numbers of Arab states are simultaneous “warming” towards Israel. These nations are Iran’s enemies. This is a fulfilment of Bible prophecy. (Isaiah 19) Some are: Saudi Arabia (Sheba) UAE (Part of Dedan), Bahrain, Oman, and other Gulf States. Washington is pushing for these Arab states to unite in support of Israel, creating an anti-Iran alliance. There are many reasons why this would be good, for the region, including economic and strategic in relation to the Gulf of Mexico as a prime oil-tanker route.
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
Isaiah 56:5 “...I will give them (Israel) an everlasting name that they should not be cut off.”
Isaiah 66:8 “Who has heard of such a thing, shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation (Israel) be born at once?”
Hosea 11:1 “When Israel was a child, I loved him...”
Exodus 4:22 “Thus says the Lord: ‘Israel is My son, My firstborn.”
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.
18th October 2019
Shabbat Shalom to all!
- There is still no Israeli government in sight as Bennie Gantz rejects Netanyahu’s latest offer to form a unity government. But Gantz says he is thinking about it. It is this impasse that is delaying the release of the “Deal of the Century.”
- AThe US brokered ceasefire in Syria is falling apart one day after it was instituted! Mike Pompeo tells Netanyahu this morning (18th October) that the US will still support Israel.
- Late breaking news is that this morning 18th October, the ceasefire has broken down with renewed fighting, shelling and bombing in the region of the ceasefire as smoke rises from towns.
- Iran says it will continue to violate the nuclear deal as it moves to higher levels of uranium enrichment, provoking the world and Israel in particular.
- The Russian bear is making serious, strategic advances in Syria and in the wider Middle East. Iran and Turkey are fateful players, preparing the way for WW111 (The war of Gog and Magog, Syria and others. We are witnessing a very fast reshuffling of the stage.
- What we are seeing in the Middle East is battle for power and control – all perfectly prophesied!
Israel has a beady eye on it all. Prophetically, Israel must be a key component of these wars. It really doesn’t matter who does what, because prophecy will and is being fulfilled!
By the way, because the Bible prophecies certain things that does not mean it is sanctioning those things. They will come to pass right or wrong.
Bible interpretation and application:
In this report I want to draw your attention to some very important issues relating to our understanding of the Bible. These issues have always been important, but now as we head into these dangerous end-times, it is of critical importance.
We need to understand that Bible prophecy comes in various forms. Sometimes it is written directly for the present time exclusively. For example, the prophecies of Isaiah 17 relating to the soon coming destruction of Damascus, Syria, have never had an occurrence in history. Therefore its interpretation and application is for one point in time – now.
Then, we have many prophecies that were events that took place historically. That would be the interpretation. But they may have application to future events. This is called prophecy with a double reference. In these cases you need to be well disciplined in your application. Never take and application or analogy too far!
In dealing with prophetic application you must always be on guard against presumption. You really do need the gifts of the Spirit to correctly see into prophecy. Bear in mind that the word of God is useless, dead letter, or it is alive and presently speaking. The baptism in the Spirit makes the difference.
Sometimes a prophetic vision or message may be built on a number of different sources, and like a grand conductor, the Spirit of God puts it all together.
Prophetic interpretation and application must not contradict any verse in the Bible.
There is much to be said about prophetic dreams and visions. Personally, I don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater, but I’m very cautious. More so from whom they originate.
But, the Bible says that there will be an increase in dreams and vision as the end approaches. We must be watchful, but also watchful in relation to whom these dreams and visions come from, because many, in their pride, are on the manipulation band wagon!
The central purpose behind all prophecy is to reveal and inform us about the coming of our Lord, It is o give us knowledge, understanding, wisdom and sight of His soon coming and all the events surrounding His coming. It is bring Israel face to face with her Messiah.
Bible prophecy also reveals the work of the enemy. It reveals the modern kiss of Judas in replacement theology!
Time is very short!
We must always beware of spiritual novices with some of these gifts. Many of them create a big mess, which has to be unravelled.
We must always be aware of the spirit in and behind certain Bible teachers and ministers. Too many have a pride and ego problem, which the devil uses to bring in great error. Too many are subtly creating division, which becomes a sect and finally a cult!
Beware of those who come with forcefull "private or personal interpretations". (2 Peter 1:20)
Here is a shocking portion of scripture:
1 Corinthians 1:10-13 “I plead with you brethren, by the name of our Lord, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgement...Now I say to you this, that each of you says, ‘I am of Paul’, or ‘I am of Apollos’, or ‘I am of Cephas’, or ‘I am of Christ.’ Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptised in the name of Paul?”
This scripture above is a terrible indictment on the church. Today we see so clearly, the disastrous effects of a church divided. Yet we still the proud and arrogant, trying to “capture” and control people in their divisive sects.
There is strength in unity. There is extra strength in godly unity. In these days a solid Spirt-led knowledge of God’s word is an absolute necessity and a safety net
You should listen to no one who has does not have the evidence and fruit of listening to, and understanding the voice of God. There are many voices out there, all vying for your attention. Learn to be discerning and shut off the voices of the world.
In your pursuit of God and in your own study time, you need to be seriously disciplined. I heard someone say the other day: “They’ve taken away discipline in the schools now the children don’t respect us, their parents anymore.”
How true and tragic that statement is. It applies jus as well to your relationship with our Lord. No discipline no respect for Him and don’t expect to get anything from Him.
Part of our discipline involves waiting patiently for our Lord. What alternative do we have? But keep your spiritual eyes and ears open. Things may suddenly develop very fast!
Edition 461: March 19th 2019
Deal of the Century:
These are words of life!
This is also a message to presidents, kings, leaders and all in authority.
Peace in the Middle East and the ancient related prophecies of this event is the subject.
The Trump / Kushner “Deal of the Century” will be released just after the Israeli election in April. At this stage no one except a few insiders, know what the deal contains. There’s been much speculation, which I’m not interested in.
We do know for a fact that the deal will include a wider Middle East peace plan between the Arab nations, the Palestinians and Israel. We do know that it would include some form of land for peace arrangement. The timing of this is all very important.
Due to the details of Bible prophecy, we do know that this “Deal of the Century” cannot be the Daniel 9:27 peace treaty / covenant between Israel and “the many.”
But there is plenty of evidence to presume that this will be a pre-cursor to Daniel 9:27.
With that in mind, I believe it is timely to look into the subject now, ahead of time.
For some odd reason, many Christians believe that this peace deal will be of God. Perhaps that’s because of the Trump / Kushner involvement. Yes, I believe God has and will still use President Trump for many things; just He used the Persian king – Cyrus.
But make no mistake, this deal is pure satanic, and will lead to the unveiling of the antichrist.
We all know Jarred Kushner had his offices in number 666 Fifth Avenue New York. This was where he sat working on the deal when it all started up. That is a bit more than a subliminal sign! No, he is NOT the antichrist!
Due to original words used, this is NOT the reviving of an existing peace treaty like the Oslo Accord and others. They are all long gone and stone dead. Their details are not relevant anymore either, meaning they would have to be totally re-negotiated.
What we need to watch for, when the deal is released, and if accepted by the parties, is the response to it. Will it lead to the big Daniel 9 covenant, which could come within months afterwards, perhaps on Rosh Hashanah in September!
Daniel 9:27 “Then he (antichrist) shall confirm a covenant with many for one week (of years); but in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wings of the abomination shall be one who makes desolate...” (See also Daniel 8:25, 11:21)
The timing is important, because so many other prophetic ducks are lined up in a row too!
Bear in mind that we are in strange days these days. So far there has been rejection of any sort of deal with Israel, by the Palestinians. But as, said, these days are of supernatural occurrences. Something will cause them to melt!
The deal will include aspects relating to Jerusalem or parts of it. It will also include something relating to the rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem.
The biggest issue of all; and the very reason for the start of the tribulation period and God’s fury and anger, is the subject of the rest of this edition – a peace covenant.
The coming Deal of the Century and what it leads to will be a stumbling block for Israel!
Leviticus 19:14 “...You shall put no stumbling block before the blind, but shall fear the Lord your God. I am the Lord.”
The pre-existing, eternal covenant:
Ezekiel 37:26-28 “I will make a covenant of peace with them (Israel) and it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: I will establish them and multiply them and set My sanctuary in their midst forevermore. My tabernacle will be with them; indeed I shall be their God and they shall be My people. The nation s also will know that I, the Lord sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forevermore.” (The following verses describe the Gog and Magog war, or WW111.)
Please note very well that God has an existing, eternal peace covenant with Israel.
Tragically, prophecy reveals that Israel will break God’s covenant and replace it with the doomed, death, peace covenant with the antichrist.
The violation of God’s covenant:
Exodus 23:32-33 “You shall make no covenant with them, nor with their gods. They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against Me. For if you serve their gods, (Islam) it will surely be a snare to you.”
Isaiah 28:15 “You have said, ‘We have made a covenant with death, and with hell we are in agreement. When the overflowing scourge (tribulation) passes through, it will not come to us, for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood we have hidden ourselves.’”
The verses above and below reveal, Israel’s greatest mistake.
Isaiah 28:18 “Your covenant with death will be annulled, and your agreement with Sheol (hell) will not stand; when the overflowing scourge passes through, then you will be trampled down by it.”
Amazingly, we see from the two verses above, that Israel will make a covenant with the antichrist, thinking it will spare them from God’s wrath in the tribulation. But what happens is just what is revealed in numerous other prophecies: The covenant with hell gets broken and they do get “trampled” by the tribulation period!
Here are more of the tragic covenant-breaking verses:
Hosea 8:1-3 “Set the trumpet to your mouth! He shall come like an eagle against the house of the Lord, because they have transgressed My covenant and rebelled against My law. Israel will cry to Me, ‘My God, we know You!’ Israel has cast off the good; the enemy will pursue him.”
Daniel 11:32 “Those who do wickedly against the covenant, he (antichrist) will corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong and carry out great exploits.”
So, God has an existing eternal covenant with Israel, which Kushner and co. Have totally ignored and or rejected in favour of their own!
To accommodate Jews being saved, now before the tribulation, they come into the New Covenant, as revealed below.
Jeremiah 31:31-33 “Behold the days are coming says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel...I will put My law in their minds and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God and they will be My people.”
Isaiah 54:10 “My kindness shall not depart from you (Israel), nor shall My covenant of peace be removed.”
Preparation for the world ruler:
The coming world-ruler needs a world that he can rule. Socialism unites people offering the united masses to the devil on a tarnished silver platter, with true biblical freedom destroyed.
It’s all a centrally orchestrated move. None of what is happening is by chance. The world will, very suddenly, and powerfully snap into socialist unity the instant the Bible and its believers are silenced, or removed by rapture.
Islam will be an instrument to bring chaos to the world ahead of the release of the antichrist.
Let’s have a look at a picture painted by some word meanings:
►The word “Islam” means “submission or surrender”
►The word “Palestinian” comes from the root Hebrew word, “Plishtim” which means “Invaders.”
►The word “Hamas” is a Hebrew word meaning “violence.”
►The word “Jihad” means “The exertion of power,” “struggle by the sword, “holy war”.
►Abraham means: “Father of multitudes”.
►Isaac means: “Laughter”.
►Jacob means: “Supplanter” or replacement. (Jacob became Israel)
►Israel means: “Prince with God.”
In these name meanings we see a pathway of hatred, revenge, war, violence and hostility from Islam. And we see a totally different character in the Jews.
The world sees Israel as the aggressor and the Palestinians (Islam) as the victim! The Bible shows the opposite.
God’s will for Israel:
God has brought Israel to their knees and to captivity many times, because of their sin and rebellion. But He has never rejected them and will complete and bring His plan to pass.
Even when Israel was in captivity, God kept them as His own, knowing that there would come a time when they would repent on a massive scale.
►The place of Israel and the Jews in a nation is that nation’s own insurance policy from God. Israel is the safeguard. This is profound and far reaching. Israel is their safeguard because God has placed His name, word and will in the heart of Israel. His major work with Israel is still ahead.
Here is God’s word relating to the Jews in dispersion amongst the nations:
Jeremiah 29:7 “Seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace you will have peace.”
Here is the contrast as revealed in the Islamic Quran:
“I charge you to immigrate and wage jihad for the sake of Allah.” (Hadith 2863, the sayings of Muhammad.) Quran (Sura 8:74) “Those who believed and emigrated and performed jihad for the sake of Allah, and those who gave you help are the true believers. They will receive forgiveness.”
The purpose of Islamic migration is for subversion. It is for jihad to achieve ultimate world domination and to bring in world Sharia law.
Of the 99 names of Allah, none are “Father.”
Number 10 = “The most proud and dominant.”
Number 61 = “The destroyer and inflictor of death.”
Number 91 = “The distressor.”
Here is nature of the Arab’s (Islam) as revealed in the Bible:
Genesis 27:40-41 “By your sword you shall live, and you shall serve your brother, and it shall come to pass when you become restless, that you shall break his yolk from your neck. So Esau hated Jacob (Israel)”
Genesis 25:30-34 “Esau (father of the Arabs) said to Jacob, ‘please feed me with that same red stew, for I am weary.” Therefore his was called Edom (meaning red). But Jacob said, ‘Sell me your birthright today’...so he sold him his birthright...Thus Esau hated (rejected) his birthright.’”
The Deal of the Century will be a work to restore at least part of Esau’s birthright, which was sold to Jacob (Israel) in a legal transaction, confirmed by God’s covenant!
Right now, the world and its media puppets of their puppet master, Satan, can’t see through their deep, dark veil of blindness!
God’s will for Israel is to stand firm and separate from the world. The Deal of the Century will want to draw Israel fully into the world and separate them from God! Remember that Islam is forever advancing. It wants world domination and in particular domination of Israel.
The Deal of the Century will mobilise and facilitate Israel to become a slave of the world and its doomed peace.
God’s deal and the world’s deal:
Will the Deal of the Century affect any of the following, and what are the central issues within God’s covenant promise to Israel?
- God’s deal is eternal and must never be broken.
- God’s deal is to bring peace to Israel, through Messiah.
- God’s deal includes the land of Israel, its borders, the city of Jerusalem and the Jewish people.
- God’s deal is to prepare Israel to take salvation to the world.
Exodus 34:11-14 “Observe what I command you this day. Behold I am driving out from before you the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite. Take heed to yourself, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you are going, lest it be a snare in your midst. You shall destroy their altars, break their sacred pillars and cut down their wooden images, for you shall worship no other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous is a jealous God.”
In the verse above, we see God’s command to drive out various nations; some are the originators of the Palestinian people today. The instruction of God is not to make any sort of covenant with them!
Isaiah 9:16 “The leaders of this people (Philistines – modern Palestinians) cause them to err, and those who are led by them are destroyed.”
The deal will divide the land:
To appease and please the devil and his hordes, The Deal of the Century will have to include dividing some sections of the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem.
This does NOT bring peace but war and judgement!
Joel 3:2 “I will gather all nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat; I will enter into judgement with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land.”
Daniel 11:39 “Thus he (antichrist) shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god (Satan), which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory and he shall cause them to rule over many and divide the land for gain.”
Deuteronomy 27:17 “Cursed is the one who moves his neighbour’s landmark. And all the people say, amen!”
Leaders of the world:
If you are a leader of any sort in any nation, please read the following verses and note that they are addressed to you. Note and understand the severity of God upon you, and please note that you will pay for your choices, especially, but not exclusively, relating to Israel.
Job 12:24-25 “He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, and makes them wander in a pathless wilderness. They grope in the dark without the light; he makes then stagger like a drunken man.”
Revelation 20:12-15 “I saw the dead small and great, standing before God and books were opened, and another book was opened which is the Lamb’s Book of Life, and the dead were judged according to their works, by the things that were written in the books...And anyone not found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.”
Isaiah 14:9 “Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming. It stirs up the dead for you. All the chiefs of the earth it has raised up from their thrones and all the kings of the nations.”
Isaiah 24:21 “It shall come to pass in that day that the Lord will punish on high the host of the exalted ones, and on the earth the kings of the earth.”
Jeremiah 50:41-42 “Behold, a people shall come from the north, and a great nation and many kings shall be raised up from the ends of the earth. They shall hold the bow and lance; they are cruel and shall show no mercy. Their voice shall roar like the sea; they shall ride on horses set in array, like a man of battle, against you O daughter of Babylon.”
Lamentations 4:12-14 “The kings of the earth and all the inhabitants of the world, would not have believed that the adversary and the enemy could enter the gates of Jerusalem – because of the sins of her prophets and the iniquities of her priests, who shed in her midst the blood of the just. They wandered blind in the streets...”
Zechariah 12:2-3 “Behold I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem and it will happen in that day, that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples. All who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.”
Political leaders of the world, here is the crown and pinnacle of your creation and your doings. You are the cause of this:
Isaiah 24: 4-6 “The earth mourns and fades away; the world languishes and fades away. The haughty people of the earth languish. The earth is also defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinances, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore the curse has devoured the earth, and those who dwell in it are desolate...”
Part of the need for a Jewish state is for them to have a secure place away from anti-Semitism and domination by Islam, and the ways of the world.
Isaiah 51:18 “There is no one to guide her among all the sons she has brought forth; nor is there any who takes her by the hand among all the sons she has brought up.”
The constitution of a nation is an insight into its foundation. Here are two real examples of the opening preamble of two of them: ●“In submission to Almighty God, we declare that...” ●“We the people declare that...”
It’s interesting that most nations that have had a godly national constitution of some sort, have historically been pro-Israel, and the others not. It all has spiritual roots!
Right now, before it all begins, true Christians are God’s peace offering to Israel!
I hope you see why the peace of Jerusalem is only possible with the Prince of Peace resident and not the Peace deal of the Century!
The peace Deal of the Century is way to war, wrath, tribulation and judgement.
This is the end of man’s best efforts, -all cursed just like Adam’s best effort!
►I and The Prophetic Scroll, again affirm our commitment to stand with and for Israel in these dangerous days ahead.
Isaiah 49:3 “He said to me, ‘You are My servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.’”
Amos 9:15 “I will plant them (Jews) in their land, and they shall no longer be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord your God.”
Ezekiel 13:18 “...Will you hunt the souls of My people and keep yourselves alive?”
I took this picture of an immature crowned eagle in a forest nearby, and mixed it with a baobab tree.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
