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 512: March 10th 2020.
Churches in the tribulation:
I believe strongly in a pre-tribulation rapture of the true church. But not all the church is the church! Many who think they Christians will go into the tribulation.
In this edition, my aim is to help you know that your salvation is secure. But we need to clearly identify what salvation is and what it is not. It’s all very liberating indeed, but also a severe warning to the complacent and presumptuous. Don’t mess with your eternity.
What (who) is the true church?
Simply put, the true church are those genuinely born-again of the Spirit of God, through the redeeming blood and work of the cross of Calvary. They are a “new creation.” This new creation produces changes in that person and produces fruits for all to see.
The original word for “church,”- ekklesia, means “the called out ones.” That is called out of the world and into the kingdom of heaven.
A true Christian is one who progressively overcomes the world. (1 John 5:4)
Sitting in any church building on a Sunday would be true born-again Christians and professing, unsaved Christians.
A Christian is not one who says he is a Christian, because he is not a Jew and goes to church. Today the church has many professing Christians within it, who are not born again.
It is the true born-again church that will be taken by rapture at the start of the tribulation.
The unsaved “Christian” will go right through into the tribulation period, with all the unsaved.
Presumption – the great big danger for many!
What a terrible thing to presume that you are saved based on the opinions of man and much of the dead church.
Perhaps the best example was Judas. We could presume he was saved, being one of the disciples. He did not endure to the end and allowed Satan to lead him to suicide. (Matthew 10:22.)The Bible says he ended in hell.
I have compiled the following Bible verses with the intention of shocking you. Denying them, or burying your head in the sand, won’t change anything or make them go away.
If you read carefully, you will note many consistencies through these verses. They either directly claim that the people involved were or are Christians. Some verses just imply that.
Please note the gravity and seriousness of all these verses, especially when read together.
Romans 1:28 “Even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting.”
Romans 1:32 “These knowing the righteous judgement of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but also approve of those who practise them.”
Romans 2:3-5 “Do you think, O man, you who judge those practising such things and do the same, that you will escape the judgment of God...Do you not know that the goodness of God leads to repentance? But in accordance with your hard and impenitent heart you are treasuring up for yourselves wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God.”
Ephesians 4:18-19 “This I say, you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles do in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardening of their heart; who being past feeling (no conscience) have given themselves over to licentiousness to work all uncleanness with greediness.”
Hebrews 6:4-6 “It is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the age to come, if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame.”
Mark 3:29 (Addressed to the disciples and not the Jews as some claim). “He who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit, never has forgiveness, but is subject to eternal condemnation.”
1 Timothy 4:2 “The Spirit expressly says that in the latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy having their own conscience seared with a hot iron.”
Hebrews 3:12-15 “Beware brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God...Today if you will hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”
Here is a summary of the main points of the verses above:
■ “God gave them over.” ■ “They knew God’s judgement yet approve of the sin”. ■ “They will not escape.” ■ “Their treasure is God’s wrath.” ■“Their understanding became darkened as they hardened their hearts.” ■ “It is impossible for them to repent. ■ “They have eternal condemnation” ■ “Their conscience was seared.”
The messages to the seven churches of the Revelation:
We come now to Gods great summary of all churches. These seven letters speak to seven historic churches, to the church at present and have a powerful prophetic, future message in the plot of the church age.
Every church that ever existed can find its identity within one or more of these seven letters. This is God’s view of His church, the body of Messiah.
Revelation 2:5 (To the loveless church of Ephesus) “Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lamp stand from its place unless you repent.”
Revelation 2:16 (The compromising church at Pergamos) Repent, or I will come to you quickly and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth.”
Revelation 2:21-22 (To the corrupt church at Thyatira) “I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality and she did not repent. Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds.”
Revelation 2:23 “I will kill her children with death and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts...”
Revelation 3:1-3 (To the dead church of Sardis) “...I know your works that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead...Remember how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I come upon you.”
† Revelation 3:10 (The church at Philadelphia) “Because you have kept My word to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.”
Revelation 3:17 (To the lukewarm church of Laodicea) “Because you are neither cold nor hot, I will spew (Lit=vomit) you out of My mouth.”
In these messages to the churches above, God uses some totally politically incorrect terminology. It’s as if He simply doesn’t care at all about offending your feelings!
Here is a summary of the main points:
■“I will remove your lampstand (light). ■“Repent.” ■“I will cast her into a sickbed and come upon you as a thief and cast you into great tribulation.” ■“I will kill your children with death.” ■“You are dead while you live – repent.” ■“I will spew (vomit) you out of My mouth.”
When you consider the two sets of bullet points above, there is no doubt at all that these so-called Christians will go into the tribulation period. They will not go in the rapture.
I know that is controversial, but you should know that I feel nothing for controversy or offending political correctness.
Of course there is a merciful, forgiving side to our Lord, but that is not what I am dealing with now. You can’t cut out or deny the severe side. In fact those that embrace the goodness and severity of God are most wise and end up being well balanced in God’s scales.
I recall often being shocked when I sat down to study the Bible myself, without the input of others and second-hand revelation. On many occasions it rattled my cage for the good, but I had to change my thinking on many things – also for the good!
Amazingly people don’t want to hear the best news ever. They are too in love with their sin and blinded by it to see what they need. Sin blinds people not only to God, but to the devil and to the beauty and wonder of the kingdom.
Today we have a soft, sleepy, shock-less church. It is cross-less and Spirit-less – with a few wonderful exceptions.
Zechariah 7:12 “Yes they made their hearts like flint, refusing to hear the law and the words which the Lord of hosts has sent by His Spirit through the former prophets. Thus great wrath came from the Lord of hosts.”
The reason why all these verses is such a shock to the modern church, is because it, led by the spirit of error, except for some wonderful exceptions, has edited out of the modern gospel all these verses and “hard saying.”
The true, real watchmen are called and sent of the Lord.
The duty of the watchmen is no just to watch. It is to know what to watch for and what not to watch for. It is to hear and see by the spiritual gifts of revelation. It is to speak the word of God and to shut up!
Many so-called watchmen out there waste their time on things that are of no consequence. And many never tire of being wrong over and over again.
Some self appointed and proclaimed watchmen / Bible teachers are so ignorant of the scriptures, you dare not follow them.
It is time to be discerning. Don’t swallow everything that comes your way. Wisdom spits out much.
Saved by the antichrist or The Christ.
We are fast approaching the greatest drama of all time. The true church will become the greatest object of evangelism, with the most powerful message ever. It will be raptured.
What an incredible message that will be for the world and the Jew!
Christians will speak to the world very soon with one most powerful, united voice. It will be the rapture itself that will speak. That will be the greatest, “I told you so!” The rapture itself will be the voice of God to awaken Jews and Gentiles!
But then the antichrist and his false prophet will walk onto the stage and begin to draw many away.
There will be a great many who will become converts of the false prophet and antichrist.
At the same time many Jews and Gentiles will accept the true Messiah as the greatest revival of the Jews in history occurs. They will suddenly “see” their Messiah, right next to the antichrist!
God Himself will be the chief evangelist of and to the Jews.
Ezekiel 34:11 “Thus says the Lord God: Indeed I Myself will search for My sheep and seek them out.”
Catholics, other orthodox churches and those without the new birth, will become the antichrist’s evangelists, while Jews become God’s evangelists.
In the tribulation period, there is only a limited operation of the Holy Spirit. The restrainer (The church indwelt with the Holy Spirit) is gone. At the same time the satanic spirit of evil is intensified.
Revelation 12:12 “Rejoice O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”
2 Timothy 3:13 “Evil men will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.”
How difficult it will be for the tribulation saints to maintain their strength.
The great replacement theology backfire:
Replacement theology essentially replaces Israel with the church, claiming all the promises of God are for the church and all the curses for Israel. They claim that God has finished with Israel and now has only one agent – the church!
Talk about a humiliating backfire!!
God will use Israel in the tribulation period as His evangelists and not the church. The true church will have raptured and the false church will become the evangelists of the antichrist.
They churches of replacement theology, many who will be in the tribulation, are most likely to accept the antichrist and work for his evil kingdom.
Mense, dit is tyd om wakker to skrik!
Our Afrikaans language is very expressive! The above headline means, “People, it’s time to be shocked awake!
Israel is very soon going to be shocked awake – big time! Many churches are already wide awake. The Spirit of God has “electrified” them.
Many churches are going to remain asleep and fall right into the tribulation period, where they will be shocked beyond belief, but because of their own deception!
It’s not all over for them, as many would have you believe. In the tribulation everyone, besides those who have taken the mark, will be able to get shocked into becoming tribulation saints. However their destiny will be the Millennial earth.
Hell is the destination of all those who reject salvation right up to the last point and there will be many!
An unshakable foundation:
What Christians today need is a solid, unshakable foundation. Whatever you build, if not built on a solid foundation will fall when the shaking really intensifies, and its coming soon.
It’s time to fortify your heart!
There is something perceptible and identifiable in the ministry of many of the old-school fire and brimstone preachers. They may not have had their eschatology ducks in line, but back then it wasn’t an issue anyway. They had revelatory insight and power to deliver people from self, the world, and the demonic.
Today there are very few with such a foundation in their lives.
The tragedy of the day is that many of today’s Christians are no different from the world.
As you read the verses in this edition please note that this is no game. I hope you can feel the gravity of it all.
In the verses I’ve used here, we see many times that God has given over certain people. Personally, when I first studied these verses many years ago, I was shocked indeed. I heard none of them proclaimed in the church.
So, today you can choose your happy, ho, ho, ho Santa Clause Jesus, or the Frankenstein Jesus, or the true Jesus who is full of true love, which includes goodness, severity, holiness, hard sayings, easy sayings, correction, and encouragement all rightly divided and applied.
Job 9:4 “God is wise in heart and mighty in strength. Who has hardened his ways against Him and prospered.”
Do you have that sizzling sort-of feeling that we are getting very, very close to all things breaking out? I hope you do. Time is short my friends, glory is around the corner!
This lion is owned by a friend of mine who was a fashion model; then she became Miss South Africa. Then she ditched that world and bought a game reserve, and has been involved in conservation ever since. I took the picture of this guy yawning, one of five of her lions. I took the picture of the giant sycamore tree in the Ndumu Game Reserve and merged the two together.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
