|This ministry has a distinct kingdom, Messianic vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for the Jewish people and the church. My position is pre-trib! Personally: I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share these great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God.|

- 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 464: April 9th 2019
A world de-wormed:
These are words of life!
Babies have to be de-wormed sometimes, and so do dogs.
Psalm 22: 6-7 “I (the Lord) am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men and despised of the people. All those who see Me laugh Me to scorn...”
The word “worm” in the verse above is the original word “towla.” It is a specific worm found in the Middle East. In pupa from it clings to a tree and as it dies on the tree, it turns pure white. It was also used to dye very expensive cloth, a unique, rich crimson colour which oozed from it when crushed.
As you see this is no ordinary worm! Psalm 22 above is rich with descriptions of the crucifixion of our Lord, and these details of the “towla’ are pretty spectacular in type!
Yeshua, our Lord died for and paid for the sins of the world on the cross. (1 John 2:2) The unsaved world has to actively receive it for it to become personal salvation. But the price was paid for all.
There is a degree of rub-off in a nation relating to how much of the things of God they allow into society. This causes them to be a nation under God or not.
►You don’t want to de-worm the world of this worm, tuned King of kings!
De-worming the world of this worm is de-wording the world!
Hebrews 10:29 “How much worse punishment do you suppose will be for him who thought it worthy to trample the Son of God underfoot, and who counted the blood of the covenant a common thing and insulted the Spirit of grace?”
Isaiah 59:4-10 “No one calls for justice, nor does any plead for truth. They trust in empty words and speak lies to conceive evil and bring forth iniquity...They hatch viper’s eggs and he who eats them dies...Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they have not known...They have made themselves crooked paths, where there is no peace...Therefore they look for light but there is darkness for brightness, they walk in blackness...as dead men in desolate places.”
Isaiah 59:14 “...The truth is fallen in the street and cannot enter.”
Isaiah 5:20-23 “Woe to those who put good for evil and evil for good; who put darkness for light and light for darkness...Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes...Who justify the wicked for a bribe, and take away justice for the righteous man.”
Isaiah 10:1 “Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees, who write misfortune, which they have prescribed, themselves.”
Jeremiah 7:28 “You shall say to them, ‘This is the nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God nor receive correction. Truth has perished and been cut off from their mouth.’”
These verses above, when strung together, paint a terrible picture. It is a picture of the entirety of today’s world stripped of the things of God! How accurate the Bible is!
Remember my verse for the year: “When you forsake the word, you praise the wicked!”
Prophecy spells it all out:
Bible prophecy is thrilling. It takes you on a wonderful journey to great glory. It speaks now about now, and the near, and the distant future. It warns rebukes, encourages, strengthens, guides and sets the heart of man on fire, giving great, valuable wisdom. Without it you are thin ice!
The stupid, intellectual elite in the nations of the world have tried hard to remove the word of God from society and public life. It is the main gospel message of salvation that is under attack, simply because the god of this world does not want people getting saved and leaving his evil kingdom.
But it is also Bible prophecy that the devil’s world hates, because it plots the course of all things, including the demise of the devil, sin, evil and all enemies of God. It gives light and sight and shows what to avoid, and where to go, and what is coming and when.
Bible prophecy spells out the failure of man to save himself, and bring world peace to the planet in turmoil. (Revelation 12:12)
Bible prophecy gives us hope, sustains us, motivates us and fills our lives with purpose.
I expect that very soon we will see “multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision” because of the great shaking that is beginning now. (Joel 3:14)
Yes, many will remain blind and many will become outright enemies of God and His people, but exiting times are here!
As the turmoil in the world grows, you can grow in turmoil too, or you can see the world as “crucified to you”, and let it grow strangely dim as you grow brighter.
We lose interest in the world when we see that it is dead. It too loses interest in us when it sees us as crucified with Messiah. (Galatians 2:20)
Only those in darkness continue to live according to self and self’s reasoning in this world.
Do you think you will be rewarded in eternity for living for yourself? You have no chance!
One of the greatest terrors for the unsaved is that God knows their future. He knows exactly who will turn to Him for salvation and who will not!
Be careful of agreement with the world’s god and its voice, the media! There is unseen power in unity and agreement. (Genesis 11:6) The agreement of silence on many of the world’s major issues by much of the church, demonstrates spinelessness, but it does not exonerate it from blame.
Agreement with the world in many respects is agreement with hell.
The world is preparing its own destruction:
How to send the world the hell: Make them stupid. The word of God makes you wise. So, remove it and you become stupid, even as an intellectual. Perhaps you don’t know it, but clever, unsaved people go to hell, with clever, unsaved kings and those in authority.
Remove sin, even in word, and there is no need for a Saviour. What do you need to be saved from? The world thinks that they are okay and because human rights have been elevated above God, almost anything is acceptable.
Trying to make truth fit our modern culture is a minefield. You can’t do it. One has to give!
The light of the world and of Israel:
The world’s light is growing strangely dim as more and more of it is extinguished by society at large.
The light of the believer will never go out, and the light of Israel is about to be turned on brighter than ever!
Isaiah 62:1 “For Zion’s sake I will not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her righteousness goes forth like brightness and her salvation as a lamp that burns.”
Isaiah 42:16 “I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known, I will make darkness light before them and crooked places straight.”
Micah 7:8-9 “Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; when I fall I will arise, when I sit in darkness the Lord will be a light to me...He will bring me forth to the light, and I will see His righteousness.
Proverbs 4:18-19 “The path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day. The way of the wicked is like darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble.”
►I have constructed the following sentence purely from Bible verses strung together:●With God removed, the world praises the wicked. ●When there is no knowledge of God in the land, there is no more restraint and the land mourns. ●From the wicked their light is withheld. ●There is no peace for the wicked. ●The intensions of the heart of man are all deceitful and wicked. ●The world stumbles ahead in blindness. ●There is no more horror at the wickedness of the wicked.
The myth of man:
The myth of man is that he can save and manage himself! His own ways are manifest in the fruits of modern unsaved man. They are all the fruits of the law of sin and death. The fruits of Satan are “killing, stealing, destroying, lying and deceiving.”
The myth of man is a mystery. (2 Thessalonians 2:7) You can only see the mystery, when in Him!
People always look for acceptance and affirmation. They look inwardly and find only turmoil within. That is because fallen man is one with Satan in spirit. But when the true, practising Christian looks inwardly he finds the God of love who has accepted him through the forgiveness of the cross.
The problem for the unsaved is that they can search as deeply into themselves for answers as they like, but will always end up finding the deceiver. They can look outwardly to all sources in the world and will always find the deception of the deceiver, the god of the world.
The Bible believing Christian looks inwardly and finds our Lord enthroned on his life. He looks upward and finds all the glories of the kingdom of God.
Unsaved man cannot even see the kingdom of God. (John 3:3)
The myth of humanism says man is inherently good. If so the world would be a better place! If so, sin would be good, because sin resides in the heart of man. If so, man would be able to get better by looking internally to cure his psychological stress and anxiety.
►Secular psychology prescribes pills to get psychologically better! God prescribes the cross of Calvary, His word and repentance for all sin.
We need our living Saviour and His living doctrine to know and see sin and righteousness.
God’s anger at sin fell upon Yeshua on the cross. If you remove the cross, God’s anger must fall on you! David said: “Against You alone have I sinned.” (Psalm 51:4) Remove “You” and sin must fall upon you without “You” of Calvary as Saviour.
Why socialism is godless?
As the god of the world, de-worms the world and eliminates the things of God from society, a sick, diseased world full of maggots comes in. A new world order called humanistic socialism comes in.
The goal of socialism is control and domination. Socialism violates the laws of liberty and freedom. It also violates the law of sowing and reaping. Always bear in mind that the end result of Satan’s control, is to deliver you to hell.
Socialism in its various forms is man’s best effort to save himself .It replaces freedom with equality. It ‘elevates’ man to the lowest common denominator. It makes man a god, blind to god and God.
People have a built in need to be to be dependent on something, some system or someone. Socialism creates this dependence.
Internationalism, globalism and socialism (all linked) brings everyone down under the spirit of Satan and sin. God lifts us to the highest and seats us in heavenly places, holy, righteous and making us pure.
Religion without the true, living God is a dead, cursed, mechanism of control and domination, just what socialism needs.
Why would Satan be pro the interfaith movement as part of his one-world order? Every religion in the world can quite easily unite, except for the true born-again, blood-washed and cross-forgiven Christian. They are exclusive and forever separate from all religions.
Many “Christian” religions with the cross sidelined, can easily fit in with all religions. They are all counterfeits and born of Satan in the first place. They are his puppets. When they come together, they form a united front, which is easy for the devil to control.
Many churches are enemies of the cross. (Philippians 3:18)
A godless world in psychological turmoil:
Most people are feelings orientated and never go to the root of their problems. Psychologists are forever dealing with feelings (fruits) and the world’s opinions.
The self-life camouflages the sin-nature which is in its heart. It hides the enemy within.
►If you can’t see God because He has been removed from society, you can’t see the enemy either!
When you forsake the law of God, (His word) you are a law unto yourself and “yourself” is actually full of the law of sin and death, so how can you even see your problem, never mind fix it!
Pure unadulterated truth will corner you and then bring you down to your knees; then it will fill you with God and lift you up high, to the very throne of God. Have you been cornered and floored by God?
The problem of modern society is that it has been de-wormed and de-worded. It has stabbed itself in both eyes, and shot itself in both feet, and then in the head!
When you remove God from society, you also remove the very conscience of society. Have you notice the gradual change? There was once a time when people would fear getting caught in some sin or crime. Now, there is no more shame anymore!
It is primarily the liberal left and intellectual elite that have cast down the word of God in the nations and destroyed the virtues of God. Did you know that there were no liberal lefties in God’s workers?
The liberal left worldwide, US Democratic Party, British Labour Party, and others, together with their umbilicaly connected mess-media, have shot themselves in the foot for one big reason: They have underestimated how many Christians there are in their lands, with godly influence.
►They have not realised that you can’t kill God or His word! They will be devoured by the Lion of all lions! They think this Lion is a little harmless worm, or a fairy with a gruff voice!
The reality of the saved, righteous man is evident in his fruits, which are the fruits of the Spirit of life in Him. These godly fruits rub off and transmit into society and into a nation under God.
Today left wing and right wing politics are becoming polarised. They are both of the spirit of the world! Personally, I’m not a left winger, right winger or middle winger, I’m a God winger! That’s where the good fruits are.
We are to take every thought captive. (2 Corinthians 10:5) That is freedom and victory. And let me tell you something: It is not difficult to radically change your thinking.
Unity with the ungodly is easy - just cast down the word of God and your turmoil will begin. Once we die, or the Lord comes, we can’t go back and change things. Our eternal destiny is set, signed, sealed and delivered! Don’t underestimate the gravity of that!
If our Lord does not come first, we will all croak, (that does not mean standing in a corner making a noise like a frog.) We are getting older and hopefully wiser, but we will not go on forever in this life! Every day we live, we live for the potential to add height and stature to our eternal status.
Many years ago, I used to be a skydiver having great fun jumping out of aeroplanes. Now when I pull into a parking lot and jump out of my car and remain in the upright position – I have done well, and have more time to glorify our Lord.
Eliminating God’s influence from your life is the worst, most dangerous thing you could ever do. It may give you a fools euphoria and exuberance on your way to hell.
►I have put together the following two sections. They are pure verses with no commentary. It is very good to read them just as they are, one after the next, because they paint a very clear picture:
The nature of the World: ●It has a spirit. (1Corinthians 2:12) ●It cannot receive the Spirit of truth. (John 14:7) ●Its works are evil. (John 7:7) ●It lies entirely under the power of the devil. (1 John 5:19) ●It hates Messiah and Christians. (John 15:18) ●It is at enmity with God. (James 4:4) ●It is filled with tribulations. (John 16:33) ●It lives but is dead. (1Timothy 5:6) ●It is full of corruption. (2 Peter 1:4) ●It has a doomed philosophy and traditions. (Colossians 2:8) ●The world does not know us. (1 John 3:1) ●It is on course. (Ephesians 2:2) ●Its wisdom is foolishness. (1Corinthians 3:19) ●It has been judged. (John 12:31) ●As you gain the world, you lose your soul. (Matthew 16:26) ●The world is crucified to us. (Galatians 6:14)
Our response to the world: ●We receive not the spirit of the world. (1 Corinthians 2:12) ●We overcome the world. (1John 5:4) ●We escape the world’s corruption. (2 Peter 1:4) ●We love not the world, nor its things. (1John2:15) ●We hate our lives in the world. (John 12:25) ●We are in the world but not of it. (John 17:14) ●We have no friendship with it. (James 4:4) ●We live as exiles in the world. (1 Peter 2:11) ●Greater is He in us than he in the world. (1 John 4:4) ●We use the world, but do not abuse it. (1 Corinthians 7:31) ●We are not conformed to the world. (Romans 12:2) ●We pray not for the world. (John 17:9) ●For God so loved the world that He sent His Son. Salvation must be received or hell awaits; as revealed. (John 3:16-19)
I received an email from a reader recently. She said that she was “so done with the world.”
We are seeing the great push back of the ways of God like never before. The world, to its own terrible detriment, is de-worming itself of the Worm (Towla) of all life and filling itself with dirty rotten maggots of death and defeat.
Psalm 73:6 “Pride serves as their necklace; violence covers them like a garment.”
God is not going to save and redeem this world. We are called to come out of it because it is soon going to be destroyed in judgement – just like Lot had to get out.
We are to judge ourselves now so that we will not be judged or condemned with the world.
I took the background picture in the Mnweni region of the Drakensberg Mountains from a chopper and the black egret and merged them. (Mnweni means, “place of needles.”)
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
