Some mistakes and presumptions:
My job is not just to go with the flow. It is to help, inspire and lead us into all truth. That involves identifying error.
My job is to stick a sword in your heart (sometimes) and make you feel good about it.
In these days, doctrinal error is a pandemic. It need not be so for you. Our God is not a God of confusion. Satan is!
There are doctrinal errors that are not of importance. Others can rock your faith!
Some are a real game changer, when you see the truth in them!
Here are a few end-time errors doing the rounds today. Some are important and some not so:
●Without the centrality of the cross you can get by: No you can’t. This is the single biggest error ever, which will send you on a roller-coaster to hell. Without it and its personal application, in daily cross-bearing, you will be left powerless and under the deception of your own power of self and human reasoning.
●The absence of the baptism in the Spirit will get you by: It will get you by as a failure. The failure to use the gifts and the armour of God is an error that will see you deceived and defeated in these days – for sure!
●Mistake = “The great apostasy”: The term is not in the Bible! (2 Thessalonians 2:3) “The falling away,” correctly interpreted means the departure, or removal of the church in rapture. (See edition 517 for more) Some other verses do speak of deteriorating faith amongst certain churches.
●Mistake= “No one knows the day or hour” of the rapture: The term is not in the Bible! (Matthew 24:36) “Of this day and hour, no one knows,” is the correct term. If you read all the surrounding verses, they refer to the condition in the tribulation period. In context, it has nothing at all to do with the rapture – go and read the chapter, not just the verse.
●Mistake= The rapture is imminent; it could happen anytime as there are no signs for it: This is wrong. There are numerous signs for of the tribulation period and the dispensation change from the church age to the final seven years. A pre-tribulation rapture therefore has all of those signs as well.
If the rapture / tribulation start does not occur on a feast of trumpets, it would leave that feast unfulfilled and the remaining ones out of sync. That alone is a huge weight of evidence. The pattern of exact, to the day, literal fulfilment of the prophetic aspect of the feasts is clearly revealed in the fulfilments of the previous five feasts.
●Mistake= “The days of the tribulation will be shortened”: (Matthew 24:22) No they will not be shortened. The word usage means that the days of the tribulation period are cut out in time. The seven year period is the cut-out period. It does not mean actual days will not be 24 hours anymore. (Numerous commentaries support this)
●Mistake= “End-time knowledge shall increase: (Daniel 12:4) this, quite simply means that knowledge of these particular end-time events will increase as they near. General knowledge of all sorts, expanding over time, is no sign at all. It is obvious.
●Mistake= “The antichrist will confirm an existing peace treaty / covenant: (Daniel 9:27) so, what covenant would that be? There is no existing seven-year covenant, which identified the antichrist, which involves the rebuilt temple, or fits the requirements of Daniel 9:27 and others.
The word means to make a “strong covenant.” The Amplified Bible has it right – read it.
●Mistake= The Abrahamic Accords are the Daniel 9:27 peace treaty, because they use the term, “peace and safety”. That is pure short-sighted hogwash, presented largely by the always wrong brigade. (I have much more, shocking and very surprising things to share on this. I just need to find a place to fit it in.)
●Mistake= The cause of end-time judgements: There is a great variety of opinions here, some are most reasonable, some are not, and some are plainly insane. The general consensus among the mature, long standing pastors and teachers, which I fully concur with, is that the reasons are that “light” and “salt” (the church) has gone dim relating to the worldwide pandemic of abortion, homosexuality and other sins of rebellion to the word of God.
The insane presumption is that God has brought all the world troubles, like the corona virus on the world, because Trump divided Israel. Trump has not divided Israel, the “Deal of the Century” has not been ratified and is null and void.
To say that God brought the virus and other judgments on the world because Trump divided Israel is to play right into the hands of the devil and make a mockery of God. It is misdirection away from the real causes.
●Mistake= “The blood will run to the horses bridles for 1600 stadia (1 stadia =630 ft. The length is 1,008,000 ft.) (Revelation 14:20) This does not mean that the blood will run that deeply during the wrath of God. It is physically impossible for blood to run that far and deep.
The verse likens the situation to a horse trampling the grapes under a tribulum (wine press), which gets splattered with grape juice up to the horses bridles. (Isaiah 63:2, Revelation 19:13)
●Mistake= End-time signs are for the church: This is a widespread and deeply entrenched error. The truth is that end-time signs are primarily for Israel, and the unbeliever, and occur within Israel’s divided dispensation (Old Covenant and seven-year tribulation.) True signs are supernatural events. The church is not to be led by signs! We are led by the Spirit of God. If it’s a true supernatural sign, it will influence and draw people in to be saved. If it’s a lying sign it will wreck the faith of many, when discovered as a lie. (The classic was the Revelation 12-sign – lie, which wrecked the faith of many when it failed.)
Bear in mind that biblical truth roars. It bites and devours as it confronts. It also comforts and edifies, when you’re on the right side. The Jewish Lion and the Lamb is the essence of truth! It is not to be taken lightly, trivialised or changed. Truth is the Lamb and the Lion, not the Catholic ham and bunny.
If you are out in the wild African bush, there is a continuous symphony and chorus of natures beautiful sounds. When a nearby lion begins to roar, all else falls silent. I have observed that personally many times – it’s incredible. When the King speaks even the air reverberates and others shut up.
Today we are not seeing very much talk or teaching on the growing proliferation of demonic activity. This sets up many for defeat.
These are the days in which you need full on spiritual warfare.
The message of the word to the world must be alive with the Spirit of God, and when rightly applied it will convict, rebuke, alarm you, disturb you, and pull the carpet out from under you.
Soon coming judgement could be the day of your greatest rejoicing ever, or the beginning of you eternal regret. It will be one or the other, you can bank on that and you will not wiggle out of it.
The prophetic word is a navigator in troubled times. But today the prophetic word is being assaulted from without and within.
Edition 505: January 21st 2020.
Amazing hidden prophecies:
These are words of life!
Knowing and understanding who the biblical end-time players are as revealed by their ancient names, gives us some incredible insights. Most people would simply read over or not understand them without the knowledge of their present identity and role.
There is never a problem in applying modern day names to ancient nations or applying modern day terms to ancient factors. For example; modern day weaponry can be used instead of arrows, spears, horses and the like, when it is prophetic. Troops “flying like a cloud” would be a reference to aircraft. But be careful not to go beyond pure face-value logic.
Interpretation of Bible prophecy is normally straight forward, but application of that prophecy to modern events gives it a double reference, and that’s where we need to be very careful.
Come with me on an adventure into little-known, but amazing Bible prophecies for today.
What follows relates to Israel’s rebellion, rejection and soon coming salvation, and those who stand with her.
Israel in rebellion:
Hosea 13:3 (Sin of Israel) “Therefore they shall be like the morning cloud, and the early dew which vanished away, like chaff blown off from a threshing floor and like the smoke of a chimney.”
The cloud, dew, chaff and smoke all dissipate quickly. This was a picture of Israel being influenced by the Babylonian sins of Baal worship introduced by Ephraim.
Note that the morning cloud and dew refer to Israel in rebellion, when they should be for growth. Then we see the chaff of the threshing floor and the smoke of burning, which are prophetic types of the Holocaust and the tribulation period, and the Holocaust to come!
Hosea 14:1-2-5 “O Israel, return to the Lord your God, for you have stumbled because of your iniquity. Take words with you, and return to the Lord, and say to Him, ‘Take away all iniquity (repentance); receive us graciously, for we will offer the sacrifices of our lips...I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely, for My anger has turned away from him. I will be like the dew to Israel, he shall grow like the lily...His roots and branches shall be strong and spread, his beauty shall be like the olive tree.”
Note the incredible contrast between the disappearing dew of Hosea 13:3 and the dew which produces godly growth as Israel’s rebellion turns to repentance.
Who is Ephraim?
Joseph had a Gentile (Egyptian) wife who bore him two sons – Ephraim and Manasseh The name “Ephraim” means: “God has made me fertile.”
Ephraim became one of the 12 tribes of Israel. He got into all sorts of occult and pagan troubles. He was credited with leading the children of Israel astray. (Hosea 9:10-11)
Hosea 5:3-5 “I know Ephraim, and Israel is not hidden from Me; for now O Ephraim, you commit harlotry; Israel is defiled...The pride of Israel testifies to his face; therefore Ephraim and Israel stumble in their iniquity; Judah also stumbles with them.”
The failure of Ephraim to remove the Canaanites (origins of Palestinians) from the Promised Land as commanded by God is the very reason for the present day Palestinian problem. It is also the tragic reason the church is filled with Babylon! It has not purged out paganism. (Judges 1:29, Joshua 16:10.)
Hosea 7:8-9 “Ephraim has mixed himself with the nations. Ephraim is a cake half baked. Aliens have devoured his strength, but he does not know it...”
Ephraim was guilty of “baking cakes to the queen of heaven” (Jeremiah 7:15), which provoked the Lord to anger. Cakes to the queen of heaven are associated with Easter, hot cross buns and the Catholic wafer.
It is mixture with paganism that leaves God’s children half-baked and prepared on one side only, and “devours” their strength. In fact the word “Babylon” means “mixture.”
Psalm 106:35-36 “They mingled with the Gentiles and learned their works; they served their idols, which became a snare to them.”
But Israel will return to the Lord and repent and Ephraim will be involved!
Jeremiah 31:19-20 “Surely after my turning, I repented and after I was instructed, I struck myself on the thigh. I was ashamed, yes, even humiliated...I will surely have mercy on Ephraim says the Lord.”
The identity of Ephraim in modern times is prophetically important. (Genesis 41:50-53. Genesis 48:17-20) Ephraim today has been swallowed up by the Gentile nations. Only a spiritual identity fits Ephraim today. Many believe that Ephraim is the largely Gentile church with a heart for Israel.
The descendants of Ephraim are predicted to become a “multitude or fullness of the nations.” (Genesis 48:19) This ties in with Romans 11:25-26 speaking of the partial hardening of Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles comes in.)
Jacob prophesied over the two sons of Joseph, Ephraim and Manasseh, and made the sign of the Hebrew letter “tav” (similar to an “X” or a cross), as he spoke. This letter is also called “The sign of the covenant. But it is also in the form of a cross.
This implies that Ephraim’s end-time identity will be associated with the cross.
Genesis 48:14-16 “Then Israel stretched out his right hand and laid it on Ephraim’s head, guiding his hands knowingly, for Manasseh was the firstborn...The Angel (Lord) who has redeemed me from all evil, blessed the lads, saying: ‘Let my name be named among them, and the names of my fathers, Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.” (Lit= “fish in the midst of the land.”)
Two sticks become one:
Ezekiel 37:16-17 “Son of man, take a stick for yourself and write on it: ‘For Judah and the children of Israel, (and) his companions, then take another stick and write on it’, ‘for Joseph the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel,(and) his companions.’ Then join them one to another for yourself.”
Ezekiel 37:19 “Surely I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his companions; and I will join them with it and make them one stick and they will be one in My hand.”
These two verses above are profound indeed! They speak of Judah and Israel being joined as one, but with them in the joining, are the “companions!” Who are these companions? They are not Judah and Israel. They can only be the spiritual friends of Judah and Israel – the pro-Israel, largely Gentile church, which is Ephraim today. Note that they all become one.
The two sticks becoming one is a parallel with the wild olive branch (the church) being grafted into the natural olive tree. (Israel)
The Ekklesia is Ephraim the “commonwealth of Israel” who are saved Jews and Gentiles.
Zechariah 9:13-15 “I have bent Judah My bow, fitted the bow with Ephraim, and raised up your sons, O Zion, against your sons O Greece, and made you like the sword of a mighty man.”
In the verse above we see that Ephraim assists Israel in becoming a “mighty man.” This may be in warfare, but must certainly is in spiritual warfare, as many who are awake to God are already engaged in by“standing in the gap” for Israel.
Jeremiah 31:6 “There shall be a day when the watchmen shall cry on Mount Ephraim, ‘Arise and let us go up to Zion, to the Lord our God.’”
Who are the watchmen of Mount Ephraim (above)? There is no Mount Ephraim in Israel, so this is speaking symbolically of the end-time watchmen who stand for Israel. It excludes all those who think they are watchmen for the Lord but have an open or hidden anti-Israel bias – and there are many of them! They are true traitors in the Trojan!
Some believe Ephraim is only one of the 10 lost tribes of Israel. Some believe Ephraim is Britain, some the US, and some the church. Ephraim refers to one of the tribes, but most certainly to the pro-Israel church as well. That would include some of the church in Britain, the USA and everywhere, but not the churches of replacement theology anywhere.
Zechariah 10:6-9 “I will strengthen the house of Judah, and will save the house of Joseph. I will bring them back because I have mercy on them. They shall be as though I had not cast them aside; for I am the Lord their God and I will hear them. Those of Ephraim shall be as a mighty man, and their heart shall rejoice as with wine. Yes the children shall see it and be glad; their heart shall rejoice in the Lord...they will remember Me in the far countries.”
A strong rapture prophecy:
What follows is very interesting. Strong’s concordance is not the inspired word of God at all, but there many hidden meanings and messages in numbers and word-meanings. Is it just a coincidence? I think not:
Strong’s uses the letter “H” to signify that the following word is in Hebrew and “G” to signify Greek or the New Covenant.
Enoch was raptured 669 years before the flood of Noah. Enoch represents the rapture of the mostly Gentile church, being a Gentile himself. Strong’s H669 is the word “Ephraim.” The word to describe the birth of the church at Pentecost (Acts 2:4) is the word “utterance” Strong’s G669.
Now have a look at this 669:
Isaiah 66:9 (Zion travails and gives birth) “Shall I bring to the time of birth and not cause delivery? Says the Lord...”
This verse speaks of Israel being born in a day and has a double reference to her soon coming spiritual birth, which will take place en masse after the rapture. In fact the rapture will be the chief cause for Israel’s sudden repentance as they realise they were left behind.
The Hebrew Bible mentions Jerusalem 669 times.
So, we see a clear association of 669 with Israel, her coming spiritual birth, the pro-Israel church, the rapture, and even Jerusalem.
Many of the things relating to God’s plan for Israel appear to be hidden because they’re scattered in verses all over the Bible. So what I’ve done now, for your benefit, is compiled this insight – all in one place, and all from Bible verses. I’ve put them together as an evolving story.
These are Bible verses, just without the chapter and verse numbers included, for easy reading:
●Israel will be regathered and at that time repent. ●Her iniquity will not be found anymore due to God’s pardon. ● God Himself will seek Israel for redemption. ●Israel shall never be ashamed or disgraced again – forever. ●They will never again be cut off, and shall receive an everlasting name. ●The iniquity of Israel will be removed in one day! ●Israel shall be to God a special treasure above all people - a kingdom of priests. ●Israel shall be to God a sweet smelling aroma. ●Israel will recognise that the Lord is in this place and they did not know it. How awesome is this place (of knowing God). ●The Lord will defend Jerusalem like birds flying about. ●All Israel’s enemies will be confounded. ●God’s redemptive work with Israel will be as a banner to the nations, which banner the nations, shall be afraid of. ●Israel will suddenly become a light to the Gentile nations, to the ends of the earth, because He has glorified them. ●Israel will walk in holiness and the fear of the Lord. ●Shame will cover the heads of her enemies, who will put their hands over their mouth in shock and they shall lick the dust in great fear. ●Some will grab the sleeve of a Jew because God is with them. ●The earth will shake when Israel repents. ●Israel will say that God is our God and God will say, Israel is My people. ● God will set a plum line in Israel for her growth. ●God will give truth to Israel. ●They shall be the branch of His planting and be glorified by God. ●They will be beautiful like an olive tree, purified and refined. Israel will not reckon itself with the nations and will be separate - a holy people. ●They will be a joy, a praise, and an honour. ●Not one word of God’s promises to Israel will fail.
But Israel will go through great fiery trouble on her way to victory:
Isaiah 4:2-4 “Those of Israel who have escaped and those who remain in Zion and Jerusalem, will be called holy, when the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion and purged the blood of Jerusalem, by the spirit of judgement and by the spirit of burning.”
Ezekiel 22:20 “As men gather silver, bronze, iron, lead and tin into the midst of the furnace, to blow fire on it to melt it, so I will gather you in My anger and fury and I will leave you there and melt you.”
Zechariah 13:9 “I will bring one third through the fire and will refine them as silver is refined and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, and I will answer them and say, ‘This is My people, and each will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’”
Isaiah 31:9 “...The Lord’s fire is in Zion and His furnace is in Jerusalem.”
Isaiah 48:10 “Behold I have tested you in the furnace of affliction.”
These last few verses offer a terrible insight into Israel in the tribulation period. Please note that it is all of the remnant of Israel who will be brought through and saved.
These are all deadly serious issues. The world is about to be confronted with it all.
Our Lord and Saviour is looking for those who will stand with Him and His work with Israel. He is looking for fellow workers of the truth.
There are so many who are seeing these things with new eyes, and so many who want to do the right thing answering their call. There are also many manipulators and those with ulterior motives, that are also on board. May they repent.
Zechariah 8:3 “I will return to Zion, and dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. Jerusalem will be called the City of Truth, the Mountain of the Lord of hosts, The Holy Mountain.”
All of Israel – the entire land, will be united as one in the regathering. There will be no Palestinian state – the two sticks say so!
Ephraim, the true church aligned with Israel, will be raptured and one of the causes of Israel’s veil of blindness lifting.
What exciting times we live in!
I took these pictures in our local forests.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
