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 515: March 30th 2020.
These are the words of life!
Things are not out of control! God has ultimate control. God reveals His will in His word and law. He brings warning for the purpose of repentance and correction. If rejected, judgement comes and finally punishment comes.
In this edition I want to look at God’s judgement upon this world, culminating in the seven-year tribulation period, and then come forward to today, so that we can see just how accurately the forerunners to the tribulation, fit in to the big picture.
Right up front - we are not in the tribulation yet, as some are teaching, but we are not far off!
We are in the forerunner period. This is the time of foreboding forewarnings, foreshowing and foreshadowing the greatest nightmare the world will ever see. The things we are seeing now are an ominous omen, a harbinger and a precursor!
Before the unsaved world is horror and terror and great glory and peace for the Christian.
The way God works:
Again, God’s method to produce repentance and correction is: His law and warnings, then judgement and then punishment.
Jeremiah 6:10 “To whom shall I speak and give warning, that they may hear? Indeed their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot give heed. Behold the word of the Lord is a reproach to them. They have no delight in it.”
God’s law defines sin and holiness, and His word shows the way to be free from sin and the way into holiness. This is the work of the cross, but God also requires the nations to have a degree of righteousness in them, by upholding God in a more general way.
Throughout the scriptures we see examples of individuals, and entire nations repenting and turning to God in the face of His judgements. We also see many turning away from God, rejecting repentance and God’s ways.
So, it is repentance or rejection of it.
For all true believers, our Lord has paid the price for our sins through the judgement upon Yeshua at the cross, so we are free indeed. The age of grace has also affected the world. But be aware that the age of grace is coming to an end, and the world will fall under judgement and punishment.
Forewarning creates division between those who heed the warnings and those who reject them. It’s like the judge in a court room. The guilty can admit their guilt, repent, and may find some mercy.
If God defines sin and says there will be consequences for your indulgence in sin. You can’t blame God for the consequences. That’s the same as blaming gravity when you hit the ground after falling.
It really is the job of the church to bring notice to the world of what sin is, and their need to repent.
There is coming a time when the wickedness of man reaches fullness. That is when the grace of God runs out. Of course, personal, individual repentance always produces the goods. But worldwide sin will soon see warning change to judgement and then to disastrous punishment.
Many people will turn to God in repentance in the tribulation, producing the greatest revival in history. At the same time many others will turn against God and curse Him for spoiling their day, their lusts, pleasures and idolatry.
What is the time please?
We are now at a critical point in time! The Bible says that the Lord knows the time. (Zechariah 14:7) We are commanded of God to know the time of His coming. (Matthew 24:33)
We can see the numerous signs of the coming seven-year tribulation period all around us. That obviously means we can extrapolate from it, the time of the pre-tribulation rapture.
Any and all major world catastrophes at this point in time, are of major importance. It’s all because of exactly where we are on God’s prophetic time clock and map.
There continues to be a terrible deception created by many minsters who repeatedly screech like parrots that no one knows the time. That creates the impression that no one knows the time of any of these end-time events, so why bother even looking. Apart from that being a contradiction of verses like “I command you to know the time” it causes an end-time lethargy, denial and scoffing.
There are numerous signs of the coming tribulation, the arising of the antichrist and coming salvation of Israel. We are commanded to know both the “time” and the “season”.
I have said many times recently that things are about to develop suddenly. In fact Edition 503 is entitled “Suddenly” and was on this subject alone. I have mentioned in many Sabbath Reports that we are on the verge of these things breaking out suddenly.
Psalm 73:17-19 “When I went into the sanctuary, I understood their end, You set them in slippery places; You cast them down to destruction, O how they are brought to desolation suddenly. They are utterly consumed with terrors.”
God always warns before judgment (Amos 3:7-8). Legally, you can’t judge someone where there is no law to warn people. We see warnings with Noah, Lot, Babylon, Jericho, and Nineveh. In fact all the world empires were warned of their impending destruction.
The true believer is guilt-free through the cross, but still needs to repent when he falls. National repentance is also required, albeit slightly different.
Here is an example of national repentance in Israel. First we see her condition and then the answer in the verse below it:
Isaiah 59:9-10 “...We look for light, but there is darkness! For brightness, but we walk in blackness...We are as dead men in desolate places.”
Micah 7:19-20 “God will again have compassion on us, and will subdue our iniquities. You will cast our sins into the depths of the sea. You will give truth to Jacob (Israel)...”
In the verse below we see rebellion and rejection of the word of God by Egypt’s leader. We know where that ended!
Exodus 5:2 “Pharaoh said, ‘Who is the Lord that I should obey His voice to let Israel go.’”
That verse above has such profound prophetic implication for today as well!
Here is the shocking end result of proud arrogant end-time man and his rejection of warnings and repentance, and the love of himself and his sin, during the tribulation:
Revelation 9:21-22 “The rest of mankind who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone and wood which can neither see nor hear nor walk; and they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.
Revelation 16:11 “They blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores and they did not repent of their deeds.”
Today masses of people are turning to the occult for solutions.
Isaiah 47:12-15 “Stand now with your enchantments and the multitude of your sorceries in which you have laboured from your youth...You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators (fortune tellers) stand up and save you from these things that shall come upon you...The fire shall consume them...No one shall save you.”
Genuinely stupid people blame God for bringing or allowing judgement and for upsetting their lifestyles. Wise people repent.
Revelation 18:4 “I heard another voice from heaven saying, ‘Come out of her My people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive her plagues.”
Acts 2:40 “...He (Peter) exhorted them, saying, ‘Be saved from this perverse generation.”
Wisdom from ancient times is your refreshing, loving friend full of promise and victory.
When it comes to big worldwide catastrophes we need to look at the cause, and the effects as revealed in the Bible.
The ultimate cause of the judgements and wrath of God in the tribulation period is the sin and rebellion of man to God, His word, as well as their treatment of Israel.
We are now on the very verge of the long-suffering of God coming to an end.
Genesis6:3 “My Spirit will not strive with man forever...”
I’ve compiled this insight of God’s view of fallen man reaching his catastrophic end:
Isaiah 24:1-23 (Summarised) “The Lord makes the earth empty and distorts its surface and scatters its inhabitants. It will be so, with the people, so with the priest...The earth mourns and fades away, the haughty (proud) people of the earth languish. The earth is defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the laws (of God) and broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore the curse has devoured the earth and few are left. All joy is darkened and the mirth of the land is gone. In the city, desolation is left...The foundations of the earth are shaken and the earth is violently broken. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard. Its transgression shall be heavy upon it and it shall fall and not rise again. It shall come to pass in that day that the Lord will punish on high the exalted ones (demonic) and on the earth, the kings of the earth...The Lord of hosts will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem and before His elders gloriously.”
Now, along the same lines, let’s look at the four riders of the apocalypse in Revelation 6:1-8.
This remarkable passage begins with the white horse rider which is widely held to be the antichrist, representing deception. Then we see the immediate release of the other deadly riders. They are: The rider on the fiery red horse who takes peace from the earth and causes masses of people to kill each other in war. Then we see the black horse rider with a pair of scales in his hand representing world-wide scarcity and poverty. Then we see the pale horse rider whose name was “death,” and hell followed him and power was given to him to kill a fourth of the inhabitants of the earth with hunger, and the beasts.
Let me summarise for you the main points of the four riders:
Deception is the first big one. This parallels with the first warning of the end times from our Lord – “Take heed that you are not deceived.” (Matthew 24:4) Today we are seeing deception amongst the masses really intensifying. Many will fall for the antichrist. Then we have peace taken away and war arising, killing many. Right now, the wars we are seeing are Mickey Mouse affairs compared to what’s coming. Then we see large scale starvation, pestilence and the like. These are arising now, but again in a limited form compared to what’s coming.
The four riders of the apocalypse are the riders of the ultimate storm – a perfect storm. Many people will send out a mayday call to God, some will call to the devil and some will just give up and go with the flow.
These events above, clearly take place in the tribulation period, from which the church will be spared due to the pre-tribulation rapture.
But many of the events of the tribulation have forerunners.
The effects of forerunners are a call to repentance now and a warning of coming judgement and punishment. This is where we are now!
What comes next?
The effects of the Covid 19 virus are already being seen in a call for a new world order by some, a cashless society and population marking and control mechanisms. These are all tribulation occurrences, but we see them appearing in infancy now.
A new one-world-system with a united world religion reaching to ‘victory’, just like Babel, is the goal.
●Isaiah 10:13-14 Speaks of the worldwide massive economic control system instituted by the antichrist in the last days. ●Deuteronomy 28:15-68 speaks of the curses that come about as a result of disobeying God. ●Matthew 24:7-8 Speaks of nations rising up in war, and the ●increase of pestilence and earthquakes.
These all have forerunners to them. Can you see them?
If our Lord is coming soon, so is the tribulation period and the arrival of the antichrist. That means the forerunners are: An outpouring of the Spirit, tribulation-like judgements in infancy, and the spirit of antichrist deception.
The next big thing to strike the world will be a sharp rise in food prices causing starvation – thanks to the effects of Covid 19 and massive locust plagues beginning now from North Africa, through to the Middle East, Asia and India.
Earth’s upheavals will continue to increase.
The guns of war worldwide have been silent during the pandemic. That is about to change.
Israel is about to blast back onto centre-stage again.
A principle was established by God, bringing diseases and calamities on the Egyptians because they had held the children of Israel captive. (Exodus 9:14-16, Deuteronomy 28:22)
Only a deceived idiot messes with God’s plans for Israel.
It is inconceivable that with all the judgements that are here and coming, that there will not be a huge world revival. It is in fact evident already in the east. Combined with the coming salvation of the Jews – exciting times are around the corner!
We must “discern the times” (Luke 12:56).
Yeshua says you’re a hypocrite if you don’t discern the times!
Esther 4:14 “For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”
The key, main points of this edition are:
God’s law warns; then comes judgement, which then morphs into punishment when no repentance is achieved.
Many individuals and many nations will repent. Many will not. Many people feign repentance simply to return a life of pleasure in sin. Many will curse God for the coming troubles. The wise will curse their own wickedness!
Many will suddenly see that they have been nothing but a cog and a pawn in the machinery of Satan’s agenda, and will repent.
The easiest people to deal with are those who repent big and believe big. The two are related!
Time is running out fast. Forerunners are forewarning now!
Things are not going to get better; they are going to get far worse suddenly! Yes the Covid19 virus will go away, but many more catastrophes are lining up at the door!
Psalm 56:3-4 David: “When I’m afraid, I will trust in You. In God I will praise His word. In God I have put my trust. I will not fear. What can flesh do to me?
The above is a heart cry from none other than David in the fearful face of trouble. Make this a proclamation, a confession and decree.
The good news for a little while longer is: “Where sin abounds grace does much more abound”.
I mixed some of my old pictures together to form this new image.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
