This verse, below was given to me by our Lord in December last year to give to you as the crowning verse for 2020. This was just before the corona-virus became a world pandemic:
The heading is, “Babylon humiliated.” End-time Babylon is the modern world system:
Isaiah 47:10-11 “You have trusted in your wickedness. You have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you; You have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one besides me.’ Therefore evil shall come upon you and you shall not know from where it arises, and trouble shall fall upon you. You will not be able to put it off, and desolation shall come upon you suddenly.”
Romans 14:11 “For it is written, as I live says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me and every tongue shall confess to God.”
Psalm 86:9 “All nations who you have made, shall come and worship before you, O lord and glorify Your name.”
Psalm 72:11 “Yes, all kings shall fall down before Him, all nations shall serve Him.”
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose of this report is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah.
31st July 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Transforming light, life and power:
How do you know that you are solidly in the Lord’s kingdom, saved and growing in Him? What is you measure of salvation and victory?
It really is all about your transformation and it’s working from inside your heart to the outside. Do you have a growing love for holiness or do you still secretly love evil?
So much in the world is falling apart and creating a nightmare of stress and strain.
Growth in the Lord encompasses standing securely, in victory, in times of troubled waters.
A deathly, dark, demonic deception has descended upon the world, painting its beauty with an unholy ugliness.
The raging nights are thick with sick! Even the stars seem sterile and twinkle-less, hiding behind wafts of mysterious mist as we await the great twinkling-eye signal in the clouds.
This is actually the calm before the storm, the storm before the eternal calm. Yes the storm is calm compared to what’s coming and very soon. In fact comparatively, the world is now a teddy bears’ pick nick – a Mickey Mouse party.
Sounds of sirens reverberate, but are gutted and defunded. Their terror has been stolen from them by the terror of insurrection, revolt, mutiny and anarchy.
Romans 13:3 Rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authorities? Do what is good and you will have praise from them...But if you do evil, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain, for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practises evil.”
The cops are to be a terror to evildoers. If not the terrible reversal takes place and the evildoers become the terror to the cops and all civilised society!
The incidents of insurrection are growing, worldwide. The numbers are growing too. Historically, God acts when many people are affected and influenced by an evil work.
There is no safety in the numbers of rebels. There is only real safety in truth, holiness and righteousness.
Like our Lord in hell as a victor, before His resurrection, so we await our resurrection in a world turned to hell on earth.
Why is the champion of love, the God of all grace and mercy hated so much these days?
There is “another Jesus” who is not hated by the world. He has no cross and no Spirit! (2 Corinthians 11:4)
John 7:7 “The world hates Me because I testify that its works are evil.”
John 15:18 “If the world hates you, know that it hated Me before it hated you.”
Psalm 97:10-11 “You who love the Lord, hate evil! He preserves the soul of His saints; He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked. Light is sown for the righteous...”
The modern materialistically orientated church teaches you to “find your life in the world.” (Luke 17:33) They teach you to accept all the things that Satan offered our Lord, and he rejected.
►But, there is great safety in and amongst the ministers of the gospel that are close to our Lord. Those who know Him well, and walk with Him are safe and secure. Their light shines in the dark.
As the world prepares for its new world ruler, soon to emerge, know that there are many that you cannot trust anymore. Politicians, billionaires, businessmen, medical men, media, scientific experts and many worldly religious leaders are all tools of the devil in these days.
The one thing you absolutely cannot do at all these days is trust the media. They are driven by a demon monkey on their backs.
The materialistic orientated churches and all the Spirit-less churches are mostly devoid of any end-time understanding. For that reason alone, you need to be careful of them. It’s also no coincidence that they avoid anything on Israel, and even come against God’s plans for Israel.
►Love for the world of necessity means rejection of Israel! The reason is because Israel is God’s chosen “weapon” to destroy the world.” People may not know that, but spirits do!
God’s light must shine by His Spirit to offer real insight into all things related to Israel.
There are tragic effects of coming against Israel: You will be blinded to the truth, made deaf, have your heart hardened, receive a voice of confusion, and be distressed. You will have your neck under God’s knee and laughed at and scoffed at by God and be broken by Him. (There are verses for all of those things)
It’s no good just having a collection of verses in front of you. You need the light of God to receive His sight and insight, especially today. This is the way of godly metamorphosis.
Only the resurrection power of God through the work of the cross produces godly light and sight which is revelatory and transforming. There is a deceptive light as well, born in pride. Dark light is emitted from the absence of the cross and the Spirit of God.
Lucifer means “light bringer” but his light is dark light. Dark light blinds. “Be careful that the light in you is not darkness.” (Luke 11:35)
Job 18:5 “The light of the wicked indeed goes out, and the flame of his fire does not shine.”
John 9:4 “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.”
1 Corinthians 2:7 “We speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory.”
Things today are headed for a climax. Can you see it?
The end of the new world order is a world built and formed by Satan and with the fruits of Satan: Killing, stealing, destroying and lying. The end of God’s new world – the Millennium is a world built on righteousness, peace, holiness and all things glorious.
►If the world is going to simply recover from the pandemic, which many are hoping for and even some Christians are praying for, and the riots will just go away, and the locust plagues will just disappear, and everyone can get back to their normal life of murdering the unborn, homosexuality and other sin, then that would obviously mean that the rapture / tribulation start is a long way off.
That would mean that “All things are going to continue as they have done.” (2 Peter 3:4)
No, world, your day is done, your cake is cooked, your song is sung!
Jeremiah 50:23 “How the hammer of the whole earth (Babylon / end time world) has been cut apart and broken! How Babylon has become a desolation among the nations!”
You have nothing to lose by surrendering to our Lord now, and everything to gain – for all glorious eternity!
Edition 488: September 24th 2019
These are words of life!
We have one week to go until the Feast of Trumpets, which is the next of the seven to be fulfilled. (30th September – 1st October.) It will see prophetic fulfilment in the ending of the church age and the start of the tribulation period. This is also where the rapture takes place.
It is looking less likely that this feast in a week’s time will be it. A lot still has to be fulfilled. Things can of course all happen very quickly, but if it not now, I will continue to watch and pray for insight.
On the other hand this could be the most exciting week in history! Either way, time is short and we need to be ready now for what is coming. It will come soon!
Last time, I looked at the parallels between the various “end-times” that have shaped world history. The big common denominator being the arising of pride and rebellion. I looked at the “I wills.”
For the believer, the opposite is true. As our Lord approaches, humility towards Him is required.
Proverbs 18:12 “Before destruction, the heart of a man is haughty, and before honour is humility.”
1 Peter 5:5-6 “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble, therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time.”
James 4:10 “Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord and He will lift you up.”
Some definitions of humility: ●A low view of yourself. ●Freedom from pride and arrogance. ●Being dependant on someone else. ●It is lowliness of mind in the sight of God and His word. It is not grovelling in the dirt. ●The humble have a regular diet of humble pie!
True biblical humility is total surrender to the will, ways and word of God and resistance to the ways, will and word of the world! We are never to humble ourselves to the world-system, the dictates of the flesh and the demonic.
We are to resist the devil, bind the devil and his works, and cast him out. Don’t go on a witch hunt after devils and demons everywhere, but do take required biblical action when necessary. (James 4:7, Mark 16:17, Mark 3:27)
We are to come out of the world, hate our lives in the world and die to the world. Likewise we are to die to self and the flesh nature through the work of the cross. (2 Corinthians 6:17, John 12:25, Colossians 2:20)
None of these things above are defined as humility. So, we need to correctly apply the word to pride and sin and to our lives before Him in humility.
Please understand that as these end-times develop, mankind arises in pride towards God. As Satan sees his demise coming, he pours out wrath and persecution. (Revelation 12:12-13) At the same time, the wise exercise great humility towards God and His word.
Humility before God is a choice. It must be your choice. It is the required ingredient to have God’s knowledge, understanding and wisdom, especially for these end- times.
By the way, Spirit led knowledge is God’s input. Understanding is God’s organising of the knowledge, and wisdom is the application of it all. “Gnosis” is one of the original words for knowledge, but “epi-gnosis” is the word for knowledge that comes from above, by revelation. Similarly, “logos” is the word for ordinary words and “rhema” is the word for the word enlightened by God.
Proverbs 11:2 “When pride comes, then comes shame; but with the humble is wisdom.”
The Bible makes it very clear that there are two sources of wisdom:
James 3:15-17 “This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthy sensual and demonic...But the wisdom that is from above is first pure...”
1 Corinthians 1:19“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent...God has made foolish the wisdom of the wise.”
Surrender in humility to God involves surrender to His word. That means to surrender to the full doctrine of Messiah (Hebrews 6:1-2). It means surrender to a “fully preached gospel” (Acts 20:27), which is the “pillar of all truth” (1 Timothy 3:15).
Obviously this includes the 35% or so of biblical eschatology!
In this time, tragically, more and more spineless, deceived pastors and teachers are not only avoiding eschatology, in their pride – they are even coming against it.
Much of the church today is ignorant and deceived about all these end-time things. They have become targets for the devil! They are moving in pride and not humility! They are surrendered to the god of self and of the world and they can’t even see it.
You need to find reliable sources of eschatology and value them as gold.
Guidance and safety in these dangerous days:
We all need guidance because we are all on an incredible journey. Some will end in eternal suffering and some will end in untold glory – forever.
Psalm 25:9 “The humble He guides in justice, and the humble He teaches His way.”
The world is frantically trying to build its new Babylon – the kingdom of the world. Their new kingdom, just like Babylon is full of sin, and evil, which they rename and then accept.
The kingdom of God is in righteousness and peace. (Romans 14:17)
Satan is the god of this world and also the god of unsaved man. He has always tried to exalt himself and his world above God. His agents – the world-system, fallen man and the demonic are his prime tools to build his new world of counterfeit peace.
Remember that Satan wants to turn mankind into a god that he can control, and he wants a world that he can control. Now have a look at these verses:
Satan said to Eve, “You will be like God” if you eat of the tree. (Genesis 3:5) That was a big lie. But here is the truth: God says to us: “We will be like Him!” (1 John 3:2)
What an amazing thing: “You will be like God” or “You will be like God!”
Do you see it? “You will be like God”, Satan’s way, without the cross, is the way to be like the god of this world – Satan. But those who humble themselves now in this life under the true God will be like God in the resurrection! How amazing is that? (Yes it is already a done deal in Him, but we still await the manifestation of it.)
Not only will we be like Him, our new world is something so glorious in every respect that we can’t even fully imagine it! Our new world that is coming soon will be the most exquisite splendid, superb, flawless, incomparable creation ever.
Psalm 149:4 “The Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation.”
Satan’s new world, like his new man, will be a failure. His new tribulation-filled world will be the protective home of sin, evil and wickedness, all with the common purpose of exalting and worshipping Satan and dethroning God.
Be sure of this: There are two kingdoms and you will be part of one of them forever.
One of the many required ways to spiritual safety in this day is to fall before the entire word of God. You need to receive it all and not edit out, what you don’t like. You are not to remove or change any part of scripture. You are not to avoid Bible prophecy.
1 Thessalonians 5:19 “Do not quench the Spirit, do not despise prophecies.”
May I share a personal testimony: Early in my Christian life, I was told of and realised the importance of the Bible. I often walked around holding my Bible on top of my head. I often bowed down on the floor to it. For me that was symbolic of the realty of surrender to the word. For me doing something demonstrative accompanied by radical prayer – worked. I often do demonstrative things with other things too. It works and also makes people think you’re nuts, which I like, because it means they’re nuts. I have now studied my Bible for over 40 years and still can’t get enough!
You don’t just drift out of sin in your life. Yes it has been defeated once and for all by the cross, but in our flesh or soul-life the battle must still be fought. And let me tell you that it is not a hard battle when you begin by changing your thought life and you are led by the Spirit.
Our new world will be characterised by holiness forever. The world’s new world will be a stench of sin. The new world of the unbeliever will last for a very short time and then it will last for a very long time in hell itself.
The “glory” of this world will go up in the smoke of judgment. The destruction of God will show no respect for all the Ferrari’s and Lamborghini’s in the world. Everything that man esteems highly will become a pile of ashes. Go tell that to your local Ferrari dealer!
There are so many pressures today from so many sources. There is really only one way to safety and that is through humility and its product of applied knowledge, understanding and wisdom of God’s word.
You must know your Bible, led by the Spirit extremely well in these days. You must be radical about it! You must be diligent in the extreme. Days of great regret and many tears lie ahead for many Christians who have been slobs in their seeking of our Lord.
Many so-called Christians who get left behind at the rapture will become angry with God instead of themselves. They will turn to the occult, witchcraft and deceivers. Of course many will repent and become tribulation saints. They will still have an opportunity to shine like jewels before God.
Have a look at this astounding portion of scripture:
Malachi 3:16-17 “Those who feared the Lord spoke to one another and the Lord listened and heard them. So a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the Lord and who meditate on His name. They shall be mine, says the Lord of hosts, on the day that I make them My jewels and I will spare them as a man who spares his own son who serves him.”
The following verses have the headline: “The Great Day of God.” So, one could extrapolate from this that those written in this book are those who are “spared” and are those of the pre-tribulation rapture.
Note the key points: ●They feared the Lord (humility before Him). ●They spoke with one another (had like-minded fellowship) ●They were known for knowing the word.
This is not the Lamb’s book of life. This is a special book for those who have specially excelled! Don’t you think it is amazing that God Himself would write a book with the names of His favourites in it? He calls the “jewels.”
Don’t tell me that God does not have favourites. That’s your tradition. Yes He has no favourites in terms of the foundation of salvation, but He most certainly does in other areas.
I believe that many reading these words are already written indelibly, by God in this book!
People today live in a world of usurped authority and as a result, they are led into misinformation, myths, evil traditions and pure deception. They have opened themselves to be controlled by the ultimate, secret, camouflaged controller.
Submission and obedience to God’s authority is a very wonderful thing. It actually sets you free in liberty from the dictates of the flesh and the world, and above all it gives you spiritual insight.
In the tribulation period, people will be exposed to the mark of the beast, which will be a control mechanism and a unifier to create subservience. The new digital man is dead, hell-bound puppet.
Humility and Israel:
Humility is required to see God’s call and plan for Israel.
Jeremiah 13:15-16 “Hear and give ear; do not be proud, for the Lord has spoken. Give glory to the Lord your God, before He causes darkness, and before your feet stumble on the dark mountains, and while you are looking for the light, He turns it into the shadow of death and makes it dense darkness.”
Ezekiel 7:7, 10-11 “Doom has come to you, you who dwell in the land, the time has come, a day of trouble is near and not of rejoicing...Behold the day! Behold it has come! Doom has gone out; the rod has blossomed, pride has budded. Violence has risen up into wickedness.”
In these two dramatic verses above, we see the blinding effects of pride relating to Israel and her fall. The same is true for the world and its blinding pride on Israel’s coming repentance and salvation.
Just like the keyword for homosexuality is “pride” the keyword for anti-Semitism and replacement theology is “pride” resulting in the blindness it creates.
How can you go into spiritual warfare in ignorance and blindness to God’s choice and will? Show me an anti-Semite or minister of replacement theology and I will show you a blind, ignorant, deceived man, riding the beast into his own personal soon-coming Holocaust.
►2 Chronicles 6:6 “I (God) have chosen Jerusalem that My name may be there...”
►Zechariah 3:2 “The Lord said to Satan, the Lord rebuke you Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you.”
►1 Chronicles 21:1 “Now Satan stood up against Israel...”
►Job 41:34 “Satan is king over the children of pride.”
These few verses above should shock a bit more than the socks off the anti-Israel crowd. It should shock them to their boots, but alas, they are too thickly blinded and deceived to even know that their boots are standing in an ocean of cow dung.
Suffering, signs, spirits, eyes, rapture and glory!
Zechariah 3:8-9 “Hear O Joshua the high priest, you who have companions who sit before you, for they are a wonderful sign; for behold, I am bringing forth My Branch. Behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua: Upon the stone are seven eyes. ‘Behold, I will engrave its inscription,’ says the Lord of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.”
I have never seen an appropriate analysis of the verse above. Perhaps it is because it is for this time!
►Who are Israel’s “companions?” This is often a term for Gentile believes who are companions of the Jews. Can we say that they are the born again church? – Yes we can.
►What is the “wonderful sign” that they are? It is the recognition by the Gentile church of the Jewish Messiah as theirs, but it will also be a spectacular unprecedented sign to the Jews, when the church is taken in rapture.
► “Bringing forth My Branch” is the return of the Lord.
► “Seven eyes upon a stone,” is symbolic of the seven Spirits of the Lord, the seven gifts of the Spirit in the church, and the seven churches of the Revelation. We the church, are built on the “stone (Rock). We the church, are also called “living stones.” That would give us “eyes upon a stone”! This also has connotations of spiritual insight and wisdom.
Now comes the spectacular dramatic event that will crown history!
► “I will take away the iniquity of the land (Israel) in one day.”
How can that be? How can the sin of a nation (Israel) be removed in one day?
How long does the rapture take? It happens in a split second on one day. The church will be gone that quickly. What a shock those who are still unsaved in Israel will get! If ever there is something that will cause immediate repentance and salvation, it will be the fact that God has taken the church and left them – the chosen people!
We know that God is opening the veil of blindness. We know that He is doing the work, which began when Israel was born in one day in 1945 (Isaiah 66:8).
Did God give us a precedent? Did He show us things to come beforehand? Yes He did. Israel’s national salvation in one day was a precedent and forerunner of their soon coming spiritual salvation in one day too! (John 16:13, Isaiah 42:9)
Isaiah 66:8-10 “Who has heard such a thing? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion travailed she gave birth to her children...Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad with her, you who love her...”
If you have been influenced by the deception of the Revelation 12 sign teachers, please wipe your mind clean. If not it will cloud your vision. The nation giving birth in a day is Israel, not the church.
Here is an interesting exposition of the word “travailed” from the verse above:
Travailed: Strong’s H2342 –“Chuwl.” Meanings: Travail, writhe, twist, suffer, torture, distress, fear, tremble, be in great pain. (These are characteristics of the tribulation.)
This has a double reference to it. The verse is speaking of Israel’s national birth in a day as well as Israel’s coming spiritual birth in a day caused by the shock of the rapture – as she goes into the tribulation period!
Do you see how neatly that all fits together?
Isaiah 66:19 “I will set a sign among them (Jews)...they shall declare My glory among the Gentiles.”
Your life and set of circumstances is ordained of God in the sense that what you do with it all determines your eternal state. You only have one life to make your choices. They are more important than you can imagine.
Psalm 145:1 “I will exalt You, my God, O King and I will bless Your name forever and ever.”
Proverbs 3:34-35 “Surely He scorns the scornful, but gives grace to the humble, the wise shall inherit glory, but shame shall cover the legacy of fools.”
Psalm 40:4 “Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust, and does not respect the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.”
Can you hear the trumpet? Can you hear the knocking on your door?
I took this picture at sunset on the Chobe River – Botswana.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
