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 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!
