|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 465: April 16th 2019
The Court of the ages:
These are words of life!
These are the issues of eternal life. You will face them soon, like it or not. It is wise to know what’s coming, why, when and what you must do now to prepare!
This edition is primarily aimed at those in authority in various forms. That would be for political leaders down to leaders of their own family and even to you as leader of your own life. There is great responsibility in leadership and authority. We will be judged accordingly.
The Court of the ages: In the dock are all Presidents, Prime Ministers, Kings, Queens and all in governmental authority. In the dock are all the lawyers and judges of the world’s courts. In the dock is the mass-media of the world and all celebrities and entertainers. In the dock is everyone with influential authority – you too!
In the Judges seat is the King of kings and Lord of lords, and Judge of judges.
Daniel 7:9-10 “The Ancient of Days was seated. His garment was white as snow, and His hair was like pure wool. His throne was a fiery flame, its wheels a burning fire. A fiery stream came forth before Him. A thousand thousands ministered to Him; ten thousand times ten thousand, stood before Him. The court was seated, and the books were opened.”
Imagine the horror of getting to the end of your Christian life and discovering that you were in a race all along. Not so much against others but against yourself, and that there were huge rewards laid up for you, which no one had even told you about!
The Courts of God:
The Bible speaks of a number of courts of God, which each have eternal outcomes. The Bible also identifies a number of God’s record books.
Here are some of God’s record books and the things contained therein:
●Your physical features before you were even born. (Psalm 139:16) ●The number of the hairs on your head. (Matthew 10:30) ●All your tears. (Psalm 56:8) ●God’s plans for you. (Psalm 139:17) ●Every thought of man. (Psalm 139:2, Hebrews 4:12) ●Every word you have spoken. (Matthew 12:36) ●Everyone’s works. (Revelation 20:12) ●Your godly works and loves. (Hebrews 6:10, 1 Corinthians 3:14-15) ●Your life’s priorities. (Matthew 6:20) ●Those who have nurtured and developed the fear of God. (Malachi 3:16)
Unlike worldly courts, these will contain perfect judgements - absolutely pure and true. There will be no defence team in these courts, because the Judge will be all knowing! Those who have the work of the cross in their lives will be proclaimed – not guilty of all sin.
All humans are equal in that we are born of sinful Adam. Only true believers have the potential within them, through the new-birth to escape that anchor, and be set free. But the believer still has to work internal salvation to the outside, through correct application of the things of God.
If you commit a great crime and you get away with it for years and years, you may feel invincible. But don’t be fooled, you will stand before the all-knowing, all-seeing Judge of all. At the end of the day, no one gets away with anything, except true born-again Christians! We get away with everything – free, and no price to pay for all our sin!
People go to incredible lengths to justify themselves and cover their sins and lies. They see things only from their own perspective, but God sees even your thoughts and motivations.
In our lives, as Christians, we have to work out perfect inner salvation through to the outside. This begins even in our thoughts!
Some thoughts on thoughts:
“My thoughts are not your thoughts, says the Lord”. (Isaiah 55:8-9) “The thoughts that I have towards you are only good”. (Jeremiah 29:11) “Guard your thoughts”. (Proverbs 4:23) “Take every thought captive and cast down imaginations that exalt against God”. (2 Corinthians 10:5) “Think on these things”...All good and true! (Philippians 4:8)
Beware who you compare yourselves with, and who you aspire to in your thought life. The true Christian is to measure himself by the word of truth, its fruits and blessings. Not by the world, the church, modern man. This produces endless curses.
Proverbs 21:2 “Every way of man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the hearts.”
Proverbs 14:12 “There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is the way of destruction.”
Here’s a very short sweet extremely powerful verse for you. Put it into practise. (I have done so ages ago and renew it often – and it works wonders!)
Job 31:1 “I have made a covenant with my eyes; why then should I look upon a woman (with lust).” (Proverbs 4:25) Obviously this applies to men and women.
Make a covenant and decree with your eyes! By obvious extension, that would include your ears and your thought life. Don’t let your thoughts become a runaway train – it will crash!
This involves you become a strange oddball in the world’s eyes, but a dear, close, good, best friend forever, of the living God.
Let the Spirit of the Lord be your primary instructor:
The media’s men are Satan’s yes men. Hitler could tell you about that! In fact the mass-media are under the same control-spirits as Hitler, just in civilian clothes.
People put their leaders on a pedestal. They give their thoughts and lives to political leaders. They elevate them, just like gods, and it infuses into their psyche and culture.
As a true born-again, Spirit-filled Christian in these days, you need to consciously separate yourself from the spirit of the world, the counterfeit church, and the demonic. You must actively throw off your close identity with the world and its traditions and ways.
The world’s traditions are rooted in error, or the occult. You can’t feed and eat error, and stay spiritually healthy. Being released from it, releases you from invisible curses, and weights.
Applied truth changes you dramatically, making you strangely fireproof! Even as you step into eternity and your unforgiving works are hit by the fire of God’s judgement at the Judgement Seat of Messiah, it quickly dissipates into a puff of smoke! (1 Corinthians 3:14-15)
The importance of knowledge of true history is absolutely vital. Your history is the anchor and foundation of your culture and traditions. Some things within it are fine, others not.
Culture and worship are directly associated, make sure that the Spirit of God enlightens you as to what you may accept and what you must cast out! This is all dramatically important.
Proverbs 5:21-23 “The ways of a man are before the eyes of the Lord, and He ponders all His paths. His own iniquities entrap the wicked man, and he is caught in the cords of his sin. He shall die for lack of instruction, and for the greatness of his folly, he shall go astray.”
Reject Gods wise counsel, and the world will rule you:
I have included the mass-media in this section, because they are the voice of the world and its leaders. They are the voice of their ultimate leader – Satan:
●“The ruler of this world.” (Satan) (John 12:31) ●”The prince of the power of the air.” (Satan). (Ephesians 2:2) ●“The god of this world.” (Satan) (2 Corinthians 4:4). ●“The whole world is in the power of the evil one”. (1 John 5:19)
The media speaks many voices: ●Feeling – the feel-good voice of the body. ●Reason – the voice of “it seems right to me, it must be.” ●Conscience – the modern, variable voice of godlessness. ●Democracy - the collective voice of the masses.
The world and its god will not determine your destiny unless you turn away from the Lord. Hope in the future is in the heart of man. But what a futile hope it is when it is in the world.
Counterfeit Christianity perpetrated by the mass-media must be inoffensive, and cross-less, so that it can easily mix with other religions, rather than be separate.
Deception in all these things is at plague-level. It causes tunnel vision. You can only see your own stupid, cursed hobby-horse and its insane godless riders of demented destruction.
The judgement on the world’s leaders:
I don’t want to add any commentary to these profoundly important verses below. Just read them, simply as they are, taking specific note of the bold sections.
Proverbs 29:12 “If a ruler pays attention to lies, all his servants become wicked.”
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 chief ones (leaders) of the earth it has raised up from their thrones. All the kings of the nations shall speak and say, ‘Have you become like us?”
Isaiah 5:14 “Hell has enlarged itself and opened its mouth beyond measure; their glory (leaders)and their multitude and their pomp, and he who is jubilant, shall descend into it.”
Ezekiel 32:21 “The strong among the mighty shall speak to him out of the midst of hell...”
Psalm 110:6 “He shall judge among the nations, He shall fill the places with dead bodies. He shall execute the heads of many nations.”
Psalm 146:3 “Do not put your trust in princes (political leaders)...”
Isaiah 40:23 “He brings the princes to nothing; He makes the judges of the earth useless.”
Revelation 6:15-17 “The kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said the mountains and rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb, for the Day is great and who is able to stand?’”
The judgement upon Christian leaders:
1 Peter 4:17 “The time has come that judgement must begin in the house of God.”
James 3:1 “Let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we will receive a stricter judgment.”
Jeremiah 23:1-4 “Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture, says the Lord...I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all the countries where I have driven them and bring them back to their folds, and they shall be fruitful and increase. I will set up shepherds over them who will feed them; and they shall fear no more...”
Revelation 2:2 “I know your works, your labour and your patience, and you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who call themselves apostles and are not, and have found them to be liars.”
The court of great reward:
The judgment seat of Messiah is the grand court-room in which all believers (no unbelievers) appear before our Lord for eternal rewards. Everyone who appears in this court for judgement is already pure and perfect through the salvation of the cross.
All unbelievers appear at the Great White Throne Judgement, where there will be no believers. (Revelation 20:11-15)
This is a court for the exclusive issuing of eternal reward for works done in response to the call of God in the believer’s life.
This glorious court sees our majestic King of glory, enthroned and awarding spectacular rewards to perfect people! Oh yes, my friend, don’t let anyone tell you, that as a believer you are not perfect, through the work of the cross!
Hebrews 12:23 “To the general assembly of the church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the just Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect.”
2 Corinthians 10:17-18 “Let him who glories, glory in the Lord. It is not he who commends himself who is approved -but whom the Lord commends (judges).”
1 Corinthians 3:11-15 “If anyone builds on this foundation (Yeshua) with gold silver precious stones, wood, hay, straw, his work will become manifest in the Day. It will revealed by fire and the fire will test the quality. If anyone’s work endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss, but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.”
1 Corinthians 15:41-42 “There is one glory of the sun, another of the moon and another of the stars; for one star differs from another in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead...”
Daniel 12:3 “Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever.”
Do you think you will be rewarded for answering and obeying the devil’s call on you, and the call of the world and the media? Think again, buddy – and start crying!
Thieves of your reward:
These days you have to hunt far and wide for anything in the news media that is based on truth. The mass-media today are all totally blindly biased, and driven by a monkey on their back named Satan, with a frog in their throats named Diabolical Devil.
Deuteronomy 27:18 “Cursed is he who makes the blind to wander out of the way of God.”
Isaiah 9:16 “The leaders of this people cause them to err, and those who are led by them are destroyed.”
The mass-media are spiritually charged with the evil plans of their god and they don’t know it, nor can see it, but make no mistake – spirits are using them! They will lead you to miss God’s mark!
Even the compromised, sickly sweet church and its hordes of the deceived, will lead you to miss God’s mark for you!
Ezekiel 22:26 “Her priests have violated My law and profaned My holy things. They have not distinguished between the holy and the unholy, nor have they made known the difference between the unclean and the clean...”
Today we are in a world which neutralises right and wrong! If they can’t bring down your salvation, they will have their best shot at bringing down and neutralising your eternal reward state.
Throw them out of your lives.
The primary job of the mass-media, being the voice of the world, is to get rid of and devalue the pure, unadulterated truth of the Bible and replace it with the counterfeit lie of false, Christianity – that of “another Jesus.”
You must see the world as a ticking time bomb! If you don’t see it, you will befriend a big bomb, that will blow more than your head off.
The world is its own wrecking ball, with all its leaders swinging it like giant fools.
The US Democratic Party has become its own wrecking ball, as has the British Labour Party, and the EU, and the New Zealand government. The issue is that when God swings the wrecking ball, pop goes all the wacko weasels!
John 9:39 “For judgement I have come into this world.”
Isaiah 1:4 “Alas sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a brood of evil doers...They have forsaken and turned away from the Lord.”
Proverbs 29:16 “When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increases, but the righteous will see their fall.”
Did you know that there are some indications that saved, rewarded believers in heaven will witness in some way, the Great White Throne Judgement of all unbelievers? That’s a frightening thought! Imagine witnessing someone you have loved, but who remained unsaved, being cast into hell! – Yikes!
Judgement is the big comeuppance, the just punishment and retribution of those who reject His mercy and grace. It is the final merciless blow with hell to pay – and they will!
The world deemed fit to banish the Judge of all judges and in His place has come the god known as the one who comes to kill, steal, destroy, lie and deceive!
Here is the reward of the unsaved:
Romans 2:5 “In accordance with your hard and impenitent heart, you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgement of God.”
Psalm 9:8 “He shall judge the world in righteousness, He shall administer judgement for the peoples in uprightness.”
Psalm 9:19 “Arise O Lord, do not let man prevail; let the nations be judged in Your light.”
Know this: Don’t ever become blasé or apathetic about judgement. It is all part of righteousness and holiness. It is to be revered, feared, respected and honoured.
It is something we as believers have been through once for salvation, and will go through once for reward, and then never again.
An often heard criticism of Bible prophecy is that it puts fear in people. You can get rid of fear in your life now and live in ostrich land, but great, real fear will come your way soon.
I’ll chose the fear and terror of the Lord now, and be safe later!
Everyone will believe the Bible at judgement day, as they bow the knee to Messiah – too late for the unsaved! Too late for most – too late, too late!
World peace, like peace in your own life, is only possible with Satan, sin and evil removed, and that is only possible through the cross of Calvary and the application of it as you take up your own cross daily.
Colossians 3:23-24 “Whatever you do, do it heartily, as so to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord.”
How absolutely wonderful to go forward to glory with abundant confidence, hope, and anticipation! How wonderful to know that all our sins are forever gone and how wonderful to know that such great reward is laid up for the enduring believer!
I took the background picture of the Augrabies Falls, texturised a leaf and stuck in the flower.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
