●With more and more Covid vaccines being developed, we could be close to the objective of the World Health Organisation of getting the whole vaccinated! This brings up all the issues of massive control and the coming of the mark system. The control aspect will only come into force in the tribulation period, but we are seeing what could turn out to be the forerunner of it all.
●The next of the major forerunners still “run” is war. It is coming soon.

What is the Salvation of a nation?
Isaiah 32:18 “My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places.”
1 Timothy 2:2 “Pray for kings and all who are in authority, that you may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.”
As Christians we are ambassadors for Messiah’s kingdom, sent to the darkness to shed God’s light in it. Of course, there is a limit to that, because Satan is the god of the world, but nevertheless we do need to be God’s torch-bearer.
Jeremiah 29:7 “Seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive and pray for it, for in its peace you will have peace.”
There’s a distinction between God’s requirements for personal salvation and for the salvation of a nation. The scriptures need to be applied to each. So many, including pastors go off into a ditch on one side of the road, and essentially loose the plot!
It’s not so much about Trump or Biden, but more about spirits and biblical issues.
It’s not so much about the personalities but the policies and principles they represent.
In supporting one candidate, by default you are rejecting the other. So if one candidate represents a whole lot of biblical issues and the other, the opposite, you are standing for the policies much more than the personality. You cannot support one candidate and not all of his policies.
What’s different now is that God’s judgement has entered front stage. The call for repentance on the big world-influencing issues like abortion and moral degeneration is being echoed by all men of God, in tune with God, and even most rabbis.
If the call for repentance goes unheeded, judgement is on the doorstep. The liberal left parties, worldwide are not only ignoring God’s call, but making the situation far worse, by intensifying their rebellion on the very issues that have caused God’s judgment.
Psalm 58:2 “In heart you work wickedness. You weigh out the violence of your hands in the earth.”
We as believers are to go into the world from a position of being separate from it. I heard one pastor say the other day: “O well let’s just forget about Trump and focus only on Jesus.” When you throw in the towel of your ambassadorship you are capitulating to the devil. (2 Corinthians 5:20)
I’m not by any means suggesting that Christians become politicians, or go overboard on these things.
The Bible divides us into spirit, soul and body. The Bible says we are in this world but not of it.
It is our soul and body that is in this world with the nations. It is our spirit that is born again and seated in heavenly places.
We are not to be in friendship with the world and entangled in it, but to operate as agents of the kingdom of God, bringing both light and warning to the nations.
Multitudes are in the valley of decision not just about politics but their eternal life. Many are going to come like a flood into the kingdom in coming days, and many will be swept away like a flood!
I have written much on this subject, but the Bible is full of it. Here are more appropriate verses:
Proverbs 24:21 (Amp) “My son, reverently fear the Lord and king, and do not associate with those who are given to change of allegiance, and are revolutionary.”
Proverbs 28:28 (Amp) “When the wicked arise, men hide themselves, but when they perish, the righteous increase and become many.”
Proverbs 28:2 (Amp) “When a land transgresses, it has many rulers, but when the ruler is a man of discernment, understanding and knowledge, its stability will long continue.”
Proverbs 29:16 (Amp) “When the wicked are in authority transgression increases, but the righteous shall see the fall of the wicked.”
Isaiah 60:12 “The nation and kingdom that will not serve you shall perish; those nations shall be utterly laid waste.”
Psalm 9:17 “The wicked shall be turned back into Sheol (hell), even all the nations that forget God.”
Nehemiah 4:14 (Amp) “Do not be afraid of the enemy, remember the Lord great and terrible, and imprint Him on your minds, and take from Him courage to fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives and your homes.”
1 John 4:4 “Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.”
If President Trump is returned to office, the world may get a respite and holding off of judgement for a while, but it won’t override God’s overall purpose of bringing the rebellious world to its knees! If Biden ends up on the throne, it will expedite and hasten the terror to come.
You can and must secure your salvation now. If you are not sure or not saved, now is the time – not tomorrow! As you will see in the new edition, “Contrasting new world orders,” we are on the very verge of some things that will shock, stagger, surprise and stun you!
Edition 486: September 10th 2019
These are words of life!
The Feast of Trumpets, also called Rosh Hashanah (The Jewish New Year) occurs this year on September 29th – October 1st (Leviticus 23:23-25) The seven feasts of the Lord are filled with idioms and important messages that we dare not avoid or ignore.
They plot the course of Israel from Passover to their coming salvation, and they plot the course of the work of God from the cross to the throne, they also plot the course of the major events of Bible prophecy, with many astounding, hidden messages within.
Each of the feasts, in biblical order, has a historic fulfilment as well as a prophetic fulfilment.
The feasts are: ●Passover (the cross), ●Unleavened bread (holiness) ●Firstfruits (resurrection) ●Pentecost (church age) ●Trumpets (rapture /tribulation start) ●Atonement (wrath judgement) ●Tabernacles (Messiah dwelling with us).
In these amazing feasts we see history from the original Passover, representing the events of the cross, the course of the church age, the rapture, the tribulation, the Second Coming and Millennium.
We see the grand plan for Israel from being elected, rejected, regathered, repented and to finally being accepted.
In the feasts we see God’s plan through the ages for Israel and for the church!
In terms of fulfilment, right now we are at the transition from the first four feasts, fulfilled in the events of the cross. We will shortly see the close of the church age and the start of the tribulation period, which are seen the final three feasts. The next due for fulfilment is The Feast of Trumpets.
This may be the most important Feast of the Lord! In this edition, I will outline a few biblical basics and present you with some pure logic, and reveal some amazing messages. We must know what to be aware of, what to look for and what to avoid and ignore.
Basics of the Feast of Trumpets:
Here are some of the meanings of this feast:
Rosh Hashana: Head of the year. Yom Teruah: Day of shofar blowing. Yom Hadin: Day of Judgment. Yom Hazikaron: Days of awe. Yom Hakesesh: Day of concealment. Yom Ha-Zekaron: Day of remembrance. The feast is characterised by: The coronation of the King, the Resurrection day.
This feast day is also known as “The day of which no one knows the day and hour,” because it begins on one of two days - when the new-moon is sighted.
The feast is the start of the “high holy days of awe.”
Leviticus 23:2 “Speak to the children of Israel and say to them: The Feasts of the Lord are, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, these are My feasts.”
Colossians 2:16-17 “Let no one judge you in food or in drink or regarding a festival or a new moon or Sabbaths, which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Messiah.”
We see in the verses above that they are the feasts of the Lord. They are a holy convocation and that they are the shadows of things to come. We dare not remove them or change their order.
By the way you could quite accurately say that the Babylonian / Catholic created feasts of Easter and Christmas in which the pig is substituted for lamb at the main meal, is of the false, counterfeit lord!
1 Corinthians 10:11“All these things (Old Covenant) happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages has come.”
The feasts are not exclusively for Israel as some teach. Our Lord, as well as the apostles and the early church all participated in the feasts. The rejection of the importance of the feasts is a brick in the wall. We must tear it down to build up. (Jeremiah 31:28)
I’m not suggesting that born-again Christians need to partake in the feasts in a legalistic manner, but we should know them, know their messages, approve of them, bless them and support them. For the many that do practice them – they already know that there is a blessing upon it.
The Hebrew month of Elul (preceding Rosh Hashanah, which begins in the month of Tishrei.) traditionally sees the trumpet blown once a day to warn the people to be ready and return to the Lord. However on one day the trumpet is not to be blown. This is called the “hidden day” Elul 29, the day of release at end of a Shemita year. The symbolic reason is to hide the coming event from Satan. This also ties in with the words of our Lord: “No one knows the day or hour.”
Traditionally, on this feasts, apples dipped in honey are eaten. Pomegranates are eaten. The crown of the pomegranate when viewed from above forms a perfect Star of David pattern. In fact that is the origin of the national symbol of Israel, which comes from the pomegranates attached to the robe of the high priest.
The Feast of Trumpets begins as the new moon is sighted, beginning the Hebrew New Year. It is the only feast that begins at a variable time. It could be one of two days, because the sighting of the new moon could be on either day.
So, no one knows the exact day or hour. When the new-moon is sighted by two witnesses, the Shofar sounds and the Feast begins.
The word “Shofar” (trumpet) in Hebrew is Strong’s H 3104 – Yowbel. Meaning a rams horn trumpet. But did you know that “Yowbel” is also the word for “Jubilee?” There’s a message in that!
Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s new book, “The Oracle” is excellent. He deals with some of this tie up between jubilee and shofar in the book.
There is a very interesting Greek word used for “trumpet” on some occasions in the Bible:
Trumpet: Strong’s G4536 – Salpigx: Meaning a shaking, quivering or reverberating sound.
This word refers more to the sound than the trumpet itself. In other words a shofar can make a salpigx sound if blown accordingly.
This feast is full of trumpets blasts, more than one hundred, all of incredible meaning.
Here’s the interesting thing: At the end of the trumpet blasts the last trump sounds. It is a slow, shaking, quivering reverberating sound.
But why that and what does it mean? Read on!
The last trumpet and the twinkling eye:
1 Corinthians 15:51-52 “Behold I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep (die) but we shall be changed, in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye, at the last trump. For the trumpet will sound and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”
In this exciting discourse above, Paul is using analogies that would be very familiar to the early church, with its largely Jewish membership and background. He is using the lingo of the feasts!
Some say that the “last trump” is the same last trump used by John on Patmos in the Revelation. Quite simply, the Revelation had not yet been written when Paul was writing, so he could not have been referring to that “last trump” There is a last trump for Israel at the end of the tribulation and a last trump for the church age.
Let’s step back a moment. There are 101 trumpet blasts to be made on the Feast of Trumpets. They are required to have a variety of durations, with the last blast, being the long quivering blast.
Here are the blasts:
Tekiah = 1 long blast. Shevaim = 3 short blasts Teruah- 9 quick blasts in quick succession. The three groups of blast are repeated three times and then again eleven times. This adds to 99 blasts. The one missing blast would make it 100. So, the last trump is the 100th.
The term “last trump” is very specific. In fact the word is “trump” and not trumpet, which could mean any trumpet. The word “trump” in the Oxford Dictionary refers to a particular blast or sound from a trumpet.
This is very important! Why must the last trump be the long shaky, reverberating, quivering blast? It is because it represents a powerful, great shaking! It represents the start of the tribulation period, where everything that can be shaken will be shaken. The rapture occurs right at the beginning of this great world shaking!
The last trump then, is distinct from all the other trumpet sounds or notes of the Feast of Trumpets.
Let’s go back to our key verse above (1 Corinthians 15:51-52). The word “moment” in the original is “atomo” – the smallest division of time possible. That’s how quick the rapture will be. Then we see another interesting phrase – “twinkling of an eye.”
This is also a powerful idiom originating in the Feast of Trumpets. It relates to when the rapture will happen. The twinkling of an eye is that time period at dusk, just as the sun sets on the horizon forming a brief twinkle.
Is this giving us another clue that this feast will be marked by the rapture, and even that the rapture will occur in the early evening?
So, Paul is using the language and idioms of the Feast of Trumpets in his rapture discourse of 1 Corinthians 15!
Here we see, that the rapture will occur in a blinding flash and then the slow drawn out shaking and quivering of the world in tribulation will begin.
The restrainer of evil, the Spirit filled church will be gone in a flash, with all the God haters rejoicing. This will usher in the greatest shaking and manifestation of evil ever seen.
I suspect that in the tribulation, many who hated the church will wish that it was still here to bring at least some sort of restraint into the world! (Matthew 24:21, Joel 2:2)
Don’t be fooled, the last trump is the great sign and a massive wake-up blast to the Jews, and those left behind.
1 Thessalonians 4:16 “The Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Messiah will rise first, then we who are alive and remain, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.”
US President Trump:
With all the "trumps" of this feast, some would wonder about the relevance or tie-up with President Trump. I would not go too far with this, but I for one, most certainlt don't think it is a coincidence that we have modern day Trump blast, friendly to Israel at this particular time!
After all it is God who raises up national leaders and brings them down for His ultimate purposes, in His time. (Daniel 2:21)
The nay sayers:
These are the days of required discernment in times of terrible trickery.
As with all important things of God, the devil confuses and brings in doubt, denial and deception.
Jeremiah 6:17 “I have set watchmen on your walls saying, ‘listen to the sound of the trumpet’! But they said; we will not listen.”
Be very sure of this one fact: If there is no last trump to end the church age, the church goes through the tribulation! You can’t have a dispensation of grace still within the Old Covenant dispensation. One must end before the next begins (immediately)
There are many Bible teachers out there who are spiritually banished to Palooka Island. They have no insight and are of the spirit of the world and all its error. Leave them. Even in this issue of the feasts there is a lot of dangerous error out there.
For some reason they hate the Feast of Trumpets most.
If you deny the importance and relevance of the last trump, the reason is generally because you are of replacement theology.
The reason some reject the Feast of Trumpets or change the order of the feasts is to get rid of the pre-tribulation rapture.
There are many familiar verses of scripture written by Paul where he uses very familiar idioms known and respected by the early church, which was mostly Jewish. Today, thanks to the evils of the Catholic church, these idioms and symbols are unfamiliar to the modern church except for some.
Many simply follow each other in the errors. They have come under the same spirits.
Many teach that the rapture will be fulfilled by and in the Feast of Pentecost. If that is so, everything in this edition is meaningless trash. If that were so, what would fulfil trumpets? The order would be out and many things will not add up.
The original Feast of Pentecost was about the giving of the law on this day when Israel was at the foot of Mt. Sinai. Moses came down the mountain with the law in stone on this day. It is therefore prophetically symbolic of the law being changed from “in stone”, to “in our hearts” which occurred on the New Covenant day of Pentecost as the church age began. Acts 2:1-4
The Feast of Pentecost, logically and in order, comes as the Old Covenant closes and the New begins. There are certain aspects of Pentecost that could associate it with the rapture, but then there are also aspects that fit any of the feasts.
The Feast of Pentecost was fulfilled by Pentecost – simple!
And now just to confuse the crowd that say “no one knows the day or hour, not even the Lord.” Here is a verse from the Bible for them to put in their promise box:
Zechariah 14:7 “It shall be one day which is known to the Lord, neither day nor night, but at evening time it shall happen.”
Much false doctrines and errors have the purpose of changing established doctrine and getting rid of key elements of our Christian life. It always knocks on to other doctrines.
God’s desire is for all to be saved. He knows what’s coming and when!
1 Thessalonians 5:9 “God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation.”
Imagine having a terrible life with all sorts of tragedies and things going wrong, remaining unsaved, and then going to hell! Imagine also having a terrible life with all sorts of things going wrong, but getting saved and then going to heaven forever!
The Feasts of Trumpets proclaims the rapture and hell on earth, for seven years. It intensifies to the wrath of God represented in the Feast called Yom Kippur (Days of Awe), but then comes the Feast of Tabernacles, where our God Himself lives with His own family in a whole new dispensation.
What an incredible journey!
The family of God in the very near future will all be united in supernatural wonder and glory – ready or not. (Better to be ready!)
1 Thessalonians 4:14 “For if we believe that Yeshua died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep (have died) in the Lord.”
Psalm 37:18 “The Lord knows the days of the upright and their inheritance shall be forever.”
By obedience to your calling you can live a fulfilled life with meaning purpose plan direction, discipline expectation mission and reward at the end of it all!
I took these two pictures in one of my old favourite places – the Drakensberg Mountains.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
