- The Kushner / Trump peace initiative’s first stage has been largely rejected by the Arab nations. The Palestinians responded by setting fire to pictures of Trump and Netanyahu and launched a three day protests at the same time (against $50bn being offered in aid).
- The Iran situation is getting HOT! President Trump’s new economic sanctions on Tehran will further force them into a corner. Iran’s response has been more threats of military retaliation and aggression. Iran is now moving ever closer to her oft-stated intention to bring about Hitler’s “final solution” by wiping Israel out! Iran has an Israeli surprise coming!!This situation, when it escalates will involve proxies and allies on both sides. Israel will be drawn in – Israel is the prophetic key!
There are so many things of prophetic significance on the horizon right now – I will add these items as and if required – stay tuned.
The new agenda for the “good" of all is a globalist, socialist, one world order, with an inter-faith religion, and the mass-media as its voice. All these have a powerful unifying spirit at work in them – the spirit of antichrist. Socialism, like the Stalinist is of Satanism. You can never get rid of poverty by giving someone money. Poverty is a spiritual force essentially rooted in a curse from which deliverance is needed.
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.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
The walls of Jerusalem:
Poetry is not really my thing. But I do recall lots of poetic thoughts as I walked around the streets of Jerusalem some time ago. I was awe struck not by where our Messiah walked, but the thrilling thought of where He will walk. The dusty streets, stones and walls became the subject of some paintings I did later. But I’m now going to wax lyrical. I’ve put together a painting of words – for your benefit.
Ancient stones are whispering silent soliloquies, among the sun-burnt walls. Corner-stones of spiritual stability and strength, still stand secure, riddled with holes of the ancient hatred’s bullets, and stained with dried blood of ages past, and present times too.
These stones of Jerusalem’s protection are stones of separation – holy, immovable stones, seemingly dead, but breathing life of living history. The moss-dripping masonry are milestones, with living, green twigs in crags - walls of ruined relics, written into eternity’s word.
Listen to the stones; put your ear to the walls of wisdom. Do you hear the cries of the dead? Do you hear the shrieks of celebration? Do you hear the rocks, the great carved boulders, and the pebbles, anointed with glorious and fearful prophecy?
The scarred stones of poetic justice are again announcing judgement soon to fall. The ancient stones are echoing the warnings of God. No other city-stones speak thus.
Sin's offering, the offspring of evil, will soon yield frightful fruit: Fear, horror, terror and panic. Even the beautiful aged stones of Jerusalem will shiver and shake under earth’s soon quaking!
Yet the calm, confident, contentment of fearless holiness, and eternal beauty will stand secure amongst the strain and stress of destruction's dread.
Sin’s eternal separation from the victory and glory-producing suffering of Calvary will soon be the shock of all shocks to the sin-filled world of self-worship.
Do you see the lion on the wall? Do you hear the eternal Lion, and His severe message? Do you hear God’s trumpets under His Lion’s feet and in His roar?
Can you distinguish between the Lion of God and the roaring counterfeit lion frightening only the spiritually frightened and fragile?
Sound the trumpet! Sound the glistening terrible trumpet. Sound the trumpet of ingathering. Sound the trumpet of great victory! The world’s blinded ears see nothing – fools of tragic fools - deceived in the midst of God’s shining love – rejected!
Sound the trumpet! Sound David’s harp, and raise the golden sword of glorious victory!
The sword of Satan has pierced the Shepherd, but soon the Shepherd’s sword shall strike the roaring serpent and the people will scatter to a certain hell, with all the sin-filled nations drowning in their doomed sin. Babylon’s man-made, imposter-made,confused bricks of mortar will be no more.
Sound the trumpet. Raise the alarm, raise the sword of glory, and roar, Lion of Judah - roar! Awaken your people from fateful slumber, to their coming Lamb.
The stonework of the stonemasons of Jerusalem speaks of salvation past, present, and soon to come. The stones of Jerusalem contain a living message, a message of life, eternal life, freely given but of utmost cost and glorious value.
But you must bow your speak to the speak of these sculptured, weathered virtues. You must fall on your face in the dust before the message of these rocks of ages. As you do, salvation speaks, and soon shouts, lighting the core of your life with unquenchable, immortal fire – the fire of God!
These old speaking stones sing a new song of stern severity, of great gravity. They are sharp, hard stones, but soft and gentle to His own. They are stones of solid prophecy. They will fall on and crush the nations. They speak of things to come, and very soon too.
As we see the spectacular, dramatic, majestic message of the walls of Jerusalem, Let’s take a glimpse into the exclusive, holy, eternity of eternities:
There will be stones of pure silver, streets of glorious gold. All around, imbedded in gates and walls, always open, will be unimaginable jewels. They will be jasper, sapphire, emerald, pearls, topaz, beryl, amethyst, rubies diamonds, and more.
There will be no sun or moon - the light of God’s glory will be everywhere, forever – always.
There will be the tree of life, next to crystal rivers, each tree yielding fruit once a month and there shall be no more curse! Lions shall be your friends.
The army of the Lord will now be the bride of Messiah, bedecked in righteousness, with incorruptible crowns of untarnished magnificence, ready - forever and ever.
Isaiah 9:7 “Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end...”
The Lion of lions, the Lamb of God, the sword of pure peace, will be our very comfort and eternal grace. Stones once silent, will serenade and sing with a song of songs and a descant that will reverberate through the universe.
Are you ready for the great grandeur - the glory to come?
Edition 468: May 7th 2019
Israel under the bus:
These are words of life!
“Israel being thrown under the bus,” is a recent term, but the overall reality of it began when Pa fell off the bus, many ages ago!
The modern-day Goliath is in fact, Esau, with an ancient hatred, still trying to negate and reverse the sale of his birthright to Jacob / Israel, signed in porridge! Today, fiery rockets are his signature - the kiss of death to his brother.
Strangely, these fiery rockets are finding support for the Palestinian cause, making Israel the aggressor. That’s like Islam’s justification of rape in the name of expanding Islam. Those that obstruct the rape are the aggressors!
But as with Goliath, Israel’s missile defence system called “David’s Slingshot” combined with their smart “Iron Dome Defence System,” produces the protection against the terror.
Israel today is feeling extremely vulnerable! Here it is succinctly described thousands of years ago:
Psalm 57:4 “My soul is among lions; I lie among the sons of men who are set on fire, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.”
Psalm 64:5-7 “They (Israel’s enemies) encourage themselves in an evil matter, they talk of laying snares secretly; they say, who will see them? They devise iniquities; ‘We have perfected a shrewd scheme. The inward thought and heart of man are deep. But God will shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly, they shall be wounded. They will be made to stumble over their own tongue and all who see them shall flee away.”
By the way, it is the UN and EU nations specifically, have been, and are funding the Palestinians, while the US has killed its monetary aid to them, which of course lands up as rockets and bombs.
In this edition I will address the issues of throwing Israel under the bus.
I will also look at the terrible rise in Christian martyrdom, and the unifying force behind persecution.
What is the “bus?”
The bus is the vehicle going down the highway to hell! It is the collective ways of the world-system. It is the opinions of the world, especially related to Israel. Satan is the bus driver. He wants all nations on board, including Israel.
The bus is world domination and control under a new world political, religious and economic order, led by God’s arch-enemy – Satan.
Islam is already seated comfortably on the bus next to multitudes of religions including apostate churches. Churches of replacement theology are already on the bus, and the interfaith movement are in their seats. The Catholics the Anglicans and numerous Spirit-less churches are right up front next to the driver.
Satan uses his own tools, the media, the masses and the compromised cross-less church. The media’s message is the sacrosanct, consistent message – Do it my way!
Are all aboard and ready to roll? Yes they are, except Israel and the true church!
“The wheels of the bus go round and round, round and round. The wheels of the bus go round and round...and run you over flat, if you’re not on the bus!
Israel won’t get on the world’s bus, because she is already on another bus, driven by the King Lion.
Satan and his bloated busload of buffoons don’t like the fact that Israel won’t get on their bus, so they throw a fiery tantrum of rockets, and try to throw Israel under their bus.
In reality, you can’t throw Israel under the bus. You may be able to do so, when they, in their blindness tear up God’s bus ticket, given to them – His covenant promises, and replace it with Satan’s lying peace covenant. But that will only have limited, very short-term success.
The wheels of the bus go round and round, but remember - what goes around comes around! Those who try to throw Israel under the bus will soon find themselves under the bus. In the tribulation period, God will cast Satan’s entire bus into a flaming fire of His making!
If you try to throw Israel under the bus, you had better like the view from under the bus, because that is where you will land up, before being put on the train to tribulation.
What does it mean to throw Israel under the bus?
Throwing Israel under the bus includes all attacks against her that cause her harm. That would include verbal, political views, and church views of replacement theology in particular. It would include all military action, anti-Semitism and terrorism against Israel and the Jews.
Throwing Israel under the bus, includes throwing stumbling blocks in front of her.
Isaiah 57:14 “...Prepare the way, take the stumbling block out of the way of My people.”
This verse relates to the time period of Israel’s repentance and return to the Lord. Like any birth, this is a critical time. It speaks to the church and her influence on Israel now.
The church is commissioned to “Comfort My people” in these times. It is commissioned to make the “Jew jealous” and take the true clean, pagan-less gospel to the “Jew first!” (Isaiah 40:1, Romans 1:16, 10:19, 11:14)
Throwing Israel under the bus has been a favourite pastime of many churches, particularly those who are enslaved and dedicated to the evil pagan practises of Babylon and Baal worship. This includes the customs of Easter, Christmas and the like.
Don’t think that those convocations don’t identify you, especially amongst the Jews. Throwing Israel under the bus includes trying to poison them with paganism.
The blind church says: “Give the Jews an Easter egg, a hot cross bun and a ham sandwich. And present the children to ‘ho,ho, ho’, the satanic slob Saint Nick”!
●Hosea 2:17 “I will take from her (Israel) mouth the names of the Baals (Easter etc) and they shall be remembered by their names no more.”
Islam is a champion at throwing Israel under the bus. They believe in world domination. The surprise is that world domination will occur in the Millennium led by the Jews.
Who are you throwing under the bus?
Israel is God’s ●Child, ●Son, ●Wife, ●Bride, ●Husband, ●Divorced partner being reunited. ●Chosen people, ●God’s name is on them. ●Israel is God’s ●Servant, ●Army, ●Witness.
Israel is: ●Elected ●Rebelled ●Rejected ●Regathered ●Repented ●Accepted.
The above are found in the following verses (and others):
(Hosea 11:1, Exodus 4:22, Jeremiah 3:8-22, Hosea 2:19, Numbers 6:27, Isaiah 54:5-6, Isaiah 40:1, Jeremiah 31:4. Deuteronomy 7:6)
Israel is the “apple of God’s eye.” Zechariah 2:8)
Israel’s name is written indelibly on the palms of Messiah’s hands. (Isaiah 49:16)
Numbers 6:27 “So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.”
Throwing Israel under the bus makes you a champion of ignorance, or arrogant audacity!
Israel’s coming holiness:
One thing the world (and most of the church) can’t see or understand is that as the veil of blindness lifts from Israel, and they recognise their Messiah, they will be shattered right into a powerful holiness producing repentance.
Zephaniah 3:13 “The remnant of Israel shall do no unrighteousness and speak no lies, nor shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth...”
Deuteronomy 14:2 “For you are a holy people to the Lord your God, and the Lord has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth.”
Joshua 7:13 “...Thus says the Lord God of Israel: There is an accursed thing in your midst O Israel; you cannot stand before your enemies until you take away the accursed thing from among you.”
Isaiah 43:12 “I have declared and saved, I have proclaimed, and there was no foreign god among you; therefore you are My witnesses, says the Lord.”
Beloved brethren, it is part of your called duty to stand with Israel, to pray for them and to pray for their city. It your duty to stand before them pure and holy!
Church, you can repent for your brethren to be. Stand in the gap for them! Identify yourself with them now.
Job 22:30 “He will even deliver one who is not innocent; yes he will be delivered by the purity of your hands.”
The great bus crash.
As the world’s bus gets to the tribulation period it will crash. Untold millions of passengers will repent and come to the Lord in that time, betraying the bus driver – Satan.
Many will be killed in that great crash and end in an eternal prison, and many will rebel against God.
Isaiah 54:15-17 “Indeed they shall surely assemble, but not because of Me, whoever assembles (UN) against you (Israel) shall fall for your sake...No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgement, you shall condemn.”
Deuteronomy 30:7 “The Lord God will put all these curses on your enemies and all those that hate you and persecute you. And you (Israel) will again obey the voice of the Lord...”
Psalm 68:1 “Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: Let them that hate Him flee before Him.”
Isaiah 66:14-16 “The hand of the Lord shall be known to His servants and His indignation to His enemies. For behold the Lord will come with fire and with His chariots like a whirlwind, to render His anger with fury and His rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire and by His sword the Lord will judge all flesh; and the slain of the Lord will be many”
After the great bus crash:
“Father forgive them for they don’t know what they do.” “It is finished.” These were the words of the Lord from the cross to His own people. It still stands today! After the great world bus crash, the Jews will suddenly “Know what they have done!”
“They will look upon the One whom they have pierced and mourn for Him.” (Zechariah 12:10)
Exodus 6:6-7 “I will bring you (Israel) out from under the burdens (bus) of the Egyptians (type of the world), I will rescue you from their bondage and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm, and with great judgements. I will take you as My people, and I will be your God, then you shall know that I am the Lord...”
Daniel 12:7 “...It shall be for a time, times and half a time (3 ½ years) and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished.”
Isaiah 56:5 “...I will give them (Israel) an everlasting name that they should not be cut off.”
How stupid can you be to try and throw Israel under the bus when she is God’s agent of salvation in the tribulation? People need evangelists to show you how to be saved.
You can’t save yourself. All your good works mixed together can’t save you.
Human rights can do what it likes, but it can’t get God to save you. No human has any democratic human right to be saved.
Democracy, do you really think you will be able to vote on your eternal destiny? Do you think you will be able to vote yourself out of hell? You absolute fool!
It’s wise to choose the winning side! Our side may appear small and persecuted now, but it’s not going to stay that way forever!
God’s bus ride to glory:
God’s will, ways and word are the supreme eternal victor. All of man’s self-exalting ways, philosophies, and beliefs amount to a big zero in the face of the living God of all glory!
God’s glory will expand through the universe. True believers have the incredible privilege of working on our upcoming glory right now. You can make it grow and expand, and it will endure forever.
Isaiah 9:6-7 “Unto us a Child is born and Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder, and His name will be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father Prince of Peace. Of the increase (Lit=increasing greatness) of His government and peace there will be no end...”
Proverbs 4:18 “The path of the just (righteous) is like the shining sun that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day...”
Job 17:9 “The righteous will hold to his way, and he who has clean hands will be stronger and stronger.”
Daniel 9:24 (To be brought in): “An end of sin and everlasting righteousness...”
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.”
1 Corinthians 15:41-42 “There is one glory of the sun, another glory of the moon and another glory of the stars; for one star differs from another in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead.”
This group of verses above are so very deeply satisfying and stabilising in this forever deteriorating, devolving and forever dimming world.
The family of God are attacked when there is no longer restraint in the land. (Hosea 4:1-2) The reason is because God and His word are the authority of the universe and it is this restraining authority that is always attacked. When authority in the land breaks down, anything goes.
When people can’t turn on, and attack God because they can’t reach Him, they turn on His people and His word.
You cannot serve God and come against the Jews. You are serving a different foreign god headquartered in the offices of CNN.
Satan must remove all obstacles to him taking control of the world. Christianity is not an obstacle to Satan, It is the Spirit-filled, empowered, holy, separated Christian that is. Just as the Jews will be!
The true, born-again Christian is separated from the world by birth. He is holy by birth. The umbilical cord to the world has been cut!
Christians damage the world by getting people saved out of it. It will be the same for the Jews, who will be God’s evangelists in the tribulation.
One of the big reasons for the hatred of God and His people is that they are saved out of the world. Yes we are in it, but not of it. Satan wants us in his world and of it.
One of the unwritten, unseen reasons for persecution of Jews and Christians is the fact that God is a Jew! Many people can’t get their heads around that because their heads are in the sand with Satan!
One big reason the world hates Christians is because they have perfection in their hearts, while the world has a heart filled with sin, evil and wickedness, which they are married to and can’t get rid of.
Persecution of Christians worldwide, but particularly in the Middle East and Eastern nations has reached “genocide” proportions according to a number of reports from agencies independent of each other. The word’s media is silent, but not God’s media – the Bible!
●The Bible speaks of a church group “drunk on the blood of the martyrs.” (Revelation 17:6) Most analysts, me included, believe this speaks of the Catholic church in the tribulation period, killing the tribulation saint, who are Jews and Gentiles saved at that time.
Many times it is Catholics who are martyred. Those doing the killing don’t distinguish. They think they are killing ordinary Christians. Actually, we should stand in sympathy with Catholics who are martyred, because they are not being killed for being Catholics, but Christians. So that does put a different spin on it.
Persecution is a unifying force. The family of God will be increasingly united as persecution intensifies. Christians as the family of God will be increasingly united with Jews – the coming family of God!
One of the insane reasons the Catholic church keeps using for the hatred of the Jews, is that according to them, the Jews killed Jesus! Our Lord was no martyr. His death, burial, resurrection and ascension were the very reason He came, and the essence of salvation.
Today, we are seeing the spirit of martyrdom arising like never before. The world can’t get rid of God, but they can “martyr” the word of God and attack His people.
Genesis 22:18 “In you (Israel) all the nations shall be blessed.”
A prophetic word of warning:
Part of the new world that much of the church has become champion of, is a world of ever increasing sin and evil, justified, and sanctified by the sick, spineless, Spirit-less church.
- A prophetic word of warning to those in and under the spirit of replacement theology: Get out now! It is about to mutate into a more deadly, evil spirit. You will soon be trapped. The spearhead of anti-Semitism is replacement theology in the church. It always has been. The principle is: “As goes the spiritual, so goes the natural.”
- To those under the power of Babylonian customs and Baals: You will begin to weaken now.
- An appeal to teachers and preachers of the truth: Get you prayer warriors and teams to support, protect and strengthen you, to fortify and keep you in all truth. You are the foundation, custodian and pillar of truth in these dangerous days. (1 Timothy 3:15)
The world’s greatest, act of forgiveness is about to be seen. This will be the greatest act of triumph, mercy, grace and drama ever seen. Our Lord will pour out His forgiveness on Israel and open their blind eyes. They will dance in the streets as wildly as David did as they see their Messiah with arms outstretched.
The dance of delight:
Dance with Me Israel, O My lover, to the song of all songs, romance Me, lover of My soul to the song of all songs. To Me you have run, My beloved, you’ve captured My heart, with you I will go...dance with Me!
I took the background picture in the Drakensberg Mountains and the dead tree in the Namib Desert.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
