A weight of glory:
In coming reports and editions I will correct some of the following common, modern errors:
•The great apostasy. • No one knows the day or hour. •The days will be shortened. •The confirming of an existing covenant. •Imminence. •The identification of end time Babylon. •The curse of the Revelation 12-sign and related issues. •The cause of end-time judgments. •End-time knowledge shall increase. •The greatest modern day frauds like Ron Wyatt. •The sons of Abraham (the accords)and more.
2 Corinthians 4:17 “Our light affliction which is but for a moment is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.”
Note that glory is tangible, it has weight. That most certainly is evident in the glorious, eternal rewards laid up for the believer who meets the conditions. They are likened to gold, silver, precious stones, shining stars and many crowns of victory.
Hebrews 12:1 speaks of the weight of sin which can ensnare us as we run for victory.
Let me warn you and admonish and encourage you: To be safe in these end times you need to know doctrine, Spirit led! Not signs and wonders. The enemy will be a champion of lying, counterfeit signs and wonders in the end days, but he can never be a champion of Spirit-led doctrine.
Your entire life will be judged with doctrinal truth as the measure. The two verses below speak volumes:
Job 31:6 “Let me be weighed in a just balance, that God may know my integrity.”
Daniel 5:27 “...You have been weighed in the balances and found wanting.”
Now, with this in mind have a look at these two choices in the verses below:
Psalm 119:11 “Your word (doctrine) I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You.”
It is the power of right doctrine that creates right living and eternal reward of great glory.
Jeremiah 9:6 “Your dwelling place is in the midst of deceit. Through deceit they refuse to know Me.”
Do you see how the power of deceit and lies can keep you from God?
Hold fast to the stabilising force of doctrinal truth, in these dangerous, stormy days. Doctrine must be Spirit lit, enlivened and led, otherwise its dead letter. (2 Corinthians 3:6)
Hold fast as you reach for shining stars of glory, full of eternal richness. Your light shines forever. You are more valuable than gold to God, His kingdom and many other people.
There’s a strong evil, satanic force at work today trying to cast down the importance of doctrine, and to undermine it and its authority. There’s a strong end-time force even within a large section of the church to cast down doctrine and vilify it.
The original word for doctrine is “dogma” from which we get the word “dogmatic.” Biblical doctrine is dogmatic. If you cast it down you are casting down what is dogmatic, meaning you are a spineless, lump of soggy, floppy jelly – and you don’t even taste nice!
Because the world is casting down doctrine today, it means it must be of great importance. Thank you world for pointing that out!
What the world wants is for you to join them in casting off restrain and casting down the living God. They want a world where sin can flourish and grow, because they are slaves to sin (John 8:34)
John 3:19 “This is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather light, because their deeds were evil.”
John 7:7 “The world hates you because it hates Me because I testify that its works are evil.”
Sometimes, there are hidden gems in a verse, that are right there staring at us in the face and we don’t see them at first. Here is one of them:
“They are wilfully ignorant”. (2 Peter 3:5)
Do you see it? These people out of choice have chosen the way of ignorance. They have chosen to be stupid. They have chosen to ignore God in disobedience! This isn’t talking of ignorant people. It is talking of those who have chosen the way of the devil!
Satan loves stupid people. He loves those who have chosen him, because they are then soft and pliable in his hands and unusable by God.
The real shocking thing is that there is more than enough spiritual food out there to feed everyone, but few take it.
There’s a very big difference between hearing opinions and hearing Spirit-led truth! People think they’re okay because they’re not big sinners, but the self life (sin nature) is fallen! Even its good is sin, if God is not there.
Has the world lost its mind? Yes it has and it has been replaced with the mind / spirit of Satan and people don’t know it and can’t see it. They get further blinded as they go on in their wilful ignorance!
Revelation 17:13 (The ten horns) “These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. These will make war with the Lamb and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are called chosen and faithful.”
Notice in the verse above that the nations of the tribulation period end up being of one, unified mind of wilful ignorance as they surrender to the antichrist. That is reminiscent of Babel. Their intension is to get rid of our Lord and His word and ways.
The world is creating almost machine-like slaves right now in their deliberate wilful ignorance.
Puppets are easy to control! In fact puppets, pawns parrots and paupers are easy to control. This is what you are without God!
Here’s a closing thought to boggle you mind:
Nobody is dead.
Everyone lives forever. Some, in terrifying regret, some in heaven but shining like a dim, barely visible light, and some shining gloriously, as brightly as the stars – forever.
Rewards are given for things done as a response to God’s call and for overcoming. Rewards are exclusively for the believer. Rewards for believers are lost for being a dumb turkey.
If you think that’s not politically correct, you will have a long time to argue your stupid point with God and try to convince Him that your politically correct, dumb ‘doctrine’ is better than His doctrine of eternal truth and bright shining glory!
Edition 513: March 17th 2020.
The Incredible Journey:
Job 23:10 “He knows my journey; when He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold.”
Psalm 66:10 “You, O God have proved us; You have refined us as silver is refined.”
When you see that you are on an incredible journey, you are on the road to glory.
The world is temporary and due for destruction. (2 Corinthians 4:18) The spiritual dimension is more real than the physical world, and is eternal as you are, born for unimaginable magnificent majesty.
God planned and called you, before the foundation of the world! Your journey will never end, but it will be fulfilled as you go, culminating at the birth of the eternity of the eternities!
Our journey in a nutshell:
●Our journey begins before the foundation of the earth, when we were conceived and planned by God (Ephesians 1:4). ●It moves on to our natural birth into this fallen world. ●It moves on to our death on the cross with Messiah and resurrection in Him (2 Timothy 2:11). ●Then we die or are raptured, which sees our bodies instantly transformed into eternal spiritual bodies with all sorts of qualities and dimensions, too wonderful to express (1 Thessalonians 4:17). ●Our journey then goes on to ruling and reigning with our Lord on this earth, and in the universe (Revelation 20:4-6, 2 Timothy 2:12). ●Our journey “ends” in a new beginning called the eternity of eternities. (2 Peter 3:10-12 Isaiah 34:4)
So our journey begins before the foundation of the earth, and “ends” at the foundation of a new universe and creation.
On your journey you will encounter angels, strange and beautiful, magnificent creatures, pure sound, sight, smell, touch, taste, all knowledge of all things. You will share our Lord’s throne. You will participate in ruling and reigning in the entire universe with Him. You will encounter and experience life on other worlds, all pure and holy.
Please don’t think for one minute that you are unimportant in this grand scheme of things.
Colossians 3:2 “Set your mind on things above, not on things of this earth.”
1 Corinthians 2:9 “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for Him.”
The following verses speak of other worlds: Hebrews 1:1-2, Hebrews 11:3 Isaiah 45:12.
The often-used word “hosts” is Strong’s H6633, meaning “army, intelligent beings”.
How can we be alone in the universe when heaven is out there, angels and incredible beings?
The following verses imply our eternal future in the universe: (Hover your mouse over them)
2 Timothy 2:12, Revelation 22:5, Daniel 7:27, Isaiah 9:7, Hebrews 12:1, Romans 8:19-22.
The amazing benefits:
You are no accident and there is no trivial purpose for your existence...Be holy now it pays great, eternal, incorruptible dividends!
●Man’s way to holiness: Try to be good. Work it from the outside to the inside.
●God’s way to holiness: You are perfect inside by the new-birth, and now work it to the outside.
Man’s way is cursed and is a failure, and has been from the day dot.
God’s way is the way to eternal riches.
Psalm 119:142 “Your righteousness (holiness) is an everlasting righteousness...”
Psalm 111:3 “His righteousness endures forever.” (When it’s in us, we endure forever.)
So, to get that inner spiritual perfection from the inside to the outside we need to take up our cross daily, and put to death that which is not of God. The Bible way is death to self, the world and the sin created by the demonic forces.
If you die to self, the world and the demonic, what’s left? Nothing much is left, except all the marvels of the kingdom of God, holiness, and a grand, great, glorious future forever and ever.
The end of all things satanic is eternal destruction. The end of all things temporal is destruction. A life’s journey chasing material goods, pleasure, and happiness is the way to great regret.
Hebrews 11:25 “...There is pleasure in sin for season.”
A kingdom journey growing in the knowledge of Him has a deep peace surrounding it with many great eternal rewards soon to manifest.
Our incredible journey means that we have to change and re-prioritise many things as we go down this road of dramatic discovery. We must re-calibrate and re-adjust our lives and priorities. We must be prepared to fall flat (literally) on our faces in repentance and receive correction from the Lord.
The enemy of your journey:
Biblical Christianity is a danger to the world, the self-life and the demonic, all saturated with Satan.
The unsaved hate true biblical holiness, but it is absolute true love. You can only see that when your life is in Him.
We must tear our heart open to God and His word. That produces a change in your thinking and desires. That then changes your words which creates your reality.
You can’t just pray, name and claim prosperity for your greed. You can pray, shout, yell, scream swing from the chandeliers, and get nothing from the Lord. But when you have had your beliefs and thinking radically smashed and changed by the work of the cross, then you will be praying in line with God’s will for you.
When you have no active knowledge of God and His word, you are an island to yourself, adrift in an ocean of uncertainty and variables. Your conscience is in tune with the god of this world and his will you do. You are blind and deaf to the beautiful voice of God and the all the glories of holiness.
The biggest motivation of fallen man is to replace the things of God with materialism. Money is his faith! Modern man wants money, and possessions. He wants pleasure with no pain. “Me now”, is his chant. But true biblical truth and reality is to set your eyes and heart on that which is above.
The world of materialism is temporal. Yes we sanctify what we need to function as believers, but the world is not our source.
Proverbs 23:5 “Will you set your eyes on that which is not? For riches certainly make themselves wings. They fly away like an eagle towards heaven.”
Psalm 119:37-38 “Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things and revive me in Your way. Establish Your word to Your servant, who is devoted to fearing You.”
The big enemy attack on believers is against the truth. It comes from pulpits, teachers, YouTube ministries (not all), and others who are of the spirit of error.
When no one knows what truth is anymore, value goes out of the window. Truth and value go together. Truth is liberating and never confusing.
Blind acceptance of the world and its ways is a great enemy. Blind acceptance of much that comes from the pulpit is also your enemy. Today you need discernment like never before.
Too many are shallow, and superficial, with no depth, no strong solid foundation, and no cross. They are impersonators of each other, parrots and plagiarists. They are a fake knock-off of the original error, no different to a copy machine. They are phoney forgers with the insight of Polly the parrot.
These mimicking monkeys have a growing group of devoted disciples. They rehash and regurgitate error disguised as truth.
The biblical watchman has a vital role for the church today. In many ways, he is like the eyes and ears of the church, especially as we move into prophetic times like never before. Obviously, the watchman is an enemy of the devil and his world.
Tragically, the ministry of the watchman has become polluted by many false watchmen, and by attacks from within segments of the church itself – especially the denominational, Spirit-less churches.
Of the many rewards and crowns that will be given to believers who meet the conditions, one is specifically for the watchmen and others who watch for the coming of the Lord.
Those who come against the watchers, and there are many, including ministers, are in Satan’s service trying to rob the watchmen of their crown! They are sneaky thieves!
“Take heed no one robs you of your reward!” (Colossians 2:8, Revelation 3:11)
Are you a shining light?
■The world measures success in material terms. ■The Christian will have success measured by eternal brightness!
The ultimate measure of the success of your journey will be seen by everyone, for all eternity. The measure is likened to the brightness of a light.
Daniel 12:3 “Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever.”
Matthew 13:43 “The righteous shall shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He, who has ears to hear, let him hear!”
Proverbs 4:18 “The path (journey) of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.”
Ecclesiastes 8:1 “Who is like a wise man and who knows the interpretation of a thing? A man’s wisdom makes his face shine, and the sternness of his face is changed.”
Philippians 2:15 “Become blameless and harmless children of God, without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world.”
Job 11:17-18 (Repentance) “Your life would be brighter than noonday. Though you were dark, you would be like the morning, and you would be secure, because there is hope...”
The Christians measure of your success is seen biblically as your eternal brightness. (Daniel 12:3, 1 Corinthians 15:41, 1 Corinthians 3:13, Philippians 2:15)
Paul compares the things of the material word to cow dung! (Philippians 3:8)
The world’s measure of success is how much cow dung you have accumulated. Your material wealth is the world’s measure.
That’s quite a contrast: A bright godly light or cow dung!
I recall, a long time ago, someone being asked if he could have anything he wanted, what it would be? He said a red Ferrari. What an absolute idiot! I was not far behind in the “idiot” stakes! Shortly after that I did have a red Ferrari in my garage. It belonged to a friend whose driveway was too high for the low car, so I had it “beautifying” my garage, but without the keys. (At least I did sort-of have a Ferrari for a while!)
I can assure you that my priorities have long since changed – radically. Today if someone gave me a red Ferrari, I’d drive the hell out it and then sell it – now with it being sanctified!
Romans 8:6 “To be Ferrari (carnally) minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”
I have lived a thrill-filled life of many incredible journeys into the wilds, forests and deserts of Southern Africa, working on endangered species, always with an element of excitement. I have journeyed to many of the world’s most beautiful places, but none comes anywhere near this spiritual, eternal journey.
We will soon receive the full manifestation of our salvation, new bodies, holiness, righteousness and eternal victory as we are transformed.
1 Corinthians 15:41-42 (The glorious body) “How are the dead raised up? All are not the same...there are celestial bodies and terrestrial bodies. The glory of the celestial one and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars. For one differs from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead...”
Our rewards for what we did on this earth in response to God’s call, will be built into our very being for all to see forever. Our brightness will shine from within us
Job 5:8-9 “As for me, I will seek God, and to God I will commit my cause – who does great things and unsearchable, marvellous things without number.” (Job 37:5-15)
The end of our journey:
The end of our journey as believes is magnificent beyond description.
As we see all these things with our spiritual eyes, we get to the place where we bring others along the journey too. Our job is to assist them in having their eyes opened to this new holy kingdom of glory. We are pearls of great price, and jewels of tremendous value in God’s kingdom.
Malachi 3:17 (The book of remembrance) “They shall be Mine says the Lord of hosts, on the day that I make them My jewels.”
Isaiah 61:10 “I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation. He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorns herself with jewels.”
Time is your friend or foe:
Psalm 60:4 “You have given a banner to those who fear You, that it may be displayed because of the truth.”
Our time is running out fast. It’s not just that our time is running out, but that the opportunity to shine brightly forever is running out and our ability to influence others. Some will be saved with great reward and others with no rewards at all, but will still be saved. (1 Corinthians 3:15)
Our time here on earth is finite and it’s the “dial” to our eternal brightness!
The average person breathes 672,768,000 times in an 80-yr lifetime. Then he stops, but in reality he lives forever. Each breath can have accumulating value for you!
Our journey takes us more deeply into holiness, honour and beauty, and all things of God, with eternal consequences. It’s time to wake up!
Psalm 13:3 “Consider and hear me, O God; enlighten my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death.”
Psalm 119:18 “Open my eyes that I may see wondrous things from Your word.”
Job 22:28 “You shall declare a thing and it shall be established for you; so light will shine on your ways.”
I want to assure you that I and The Prophetic Scroll are in this with the main purpose of glorifying our God and His kingdom, and assisting you on your glorious journey.
Acts 20:24 “I do not count my life dear to me, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Yeshua, to testify to the grace of God.”
2 Peter 1:2-3 “Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord. His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue.”
This incredible journey is an amazing adventure.
Are you an incitement to others to join you on the incredible journey? Are you a “banner of truth to the nations?”
Mix of some of my pix, blended together.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
