Shabbat Shalom to all!
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 application of and use of 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 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!
