Shabbat Shalom to all!
Let My son go!
God told Moses to tell Pharaoh to “Let My people,” referring to the children of Israel in Egypt. Pharaoh repeatedly refused. Finally, at the persuasion of ten plagues, he conceded and let them go, but then changed his mind and pursued the children of Israel who had already been supernaturally protected through the plagues. Now they were miraculously delivered as they went through the Red Sea, which closed in on the Egyptians and killed them. That’s the story everyone knows. But what about the full story?
Exodus 4:22-23 “You shall say to Pharoah, ‘thus says the Lord: Israel is My son, My firstborn. I say to you, ‘Let My son go, that he may serve Me. If you refuse, I will kill your firstborn.’’”
Pharaoh was in fact not holding Israel captive, but God’s son! He was preventing the full manifestation of Messiah in and through the Jews.
“Let My people go” = “Let My son go”.
Here we have an amazing prophecy, written many years before Messiah’s birth.
Hosea 11:1 “When Israel was a child I loved him and out of Egypt I called My son.”
This verse refers to the original Exodus, but also to the infant Yeshua being “called” out of Egypt with Mary and Joseph after fleeing from Herod. Both Pharaoh and Herod were types of antichrist.
Understand that God equates the children of Israel – the Jews, with His Son – singular. This means that there is a vital identification of Israel with Messiah. It’s all wonderfully prophetic!
But there is also a hidden terror in this alliance. Those who come against Israel and those who obstruct Israel from her journey to the Promised Land, are coming against God and setting themselves up for the greatest ever judgments of all time – the tribulation - a sea of blood!
They are setting themselves up as enemies of God’s Son!
There is a most powerful modern application of “let my people go. / Let My son go.”
Here it is: ●Pharaoh = antichrist. ●Egypt = the world. ● Israel = Israel and the Jewish Messiah.
Not all Jews now are holy and Messiah-like by any stretch of the imagination. But there is a prophetic “down payment” for the salvation of a great many Jews in the end times. Many will come as returning prodigal sons. Besides, God says they are My son!
But have you wondered why God aligns and identifies His own Son with Israel? It is because His own Son, our Messiah was a perfect Jew! He kept the holy Torah. In so doing He identifies what sin is and holiness is.
Messiah was perfect and a similar holiness is coming to the Jews (not that anyone will be totally perfect this end of resurrection.)
Isaiah 4:2-4 “Those of Israel who have escaped and those who remain in Zion and Jerusalem, will be called holy, when the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion and purged the blood of Jerusalem, by the spirit of judgement and by the spirit of burning.”
Isaiah 60:21 “Your people (Israel) shall all be righteous; they shall inherit the land forever, the branch of My planting, the work of My hands, that I may be glorified.”
Israel is the son of God. The Catholic church is the counterfeit son, the son of Babylon, with its multitudes of institutional sins, none, of which will be practised or sanctioned by the true Son of holiness, God’s Son.
The son of Babylon is also referred to as the daughter of Babylon and the great whore of Babylon. (Isaiah 47:1, Psalm 137:8, Revelation 17:1)
We as Christians are grafted into the tree of Israel, rooted in Messiah. We are part of the “commonwealth of Israel” – not the commonwealth of Rome!
Ministries with no heart for Israel do have a heart for a foreign god.
Image below: various Renaissance artists’ renditions of some of the apostles.
In these days you need to have your heart open to the full, undefiled, ancient truth, without any pagan or otherwise influences. You need to be clean and holy in doctrine as well as action and even thought.
Jeremiah 6:16 “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it. Then you will find rest for your souls. But they said, we will not walk in it.”
It is only the undefiled truth that will stand and produce the best fruits.
The disciples of old had to often contend for the truth, on many occasions giving their lives for their unflinching stand. Those who were double minded and mixed with the errors of Babylon and the occult, were the ones who fell away. The same is the story today! (John 6:66)
Many are “saved” by a cross-less god - a fun-filled, jolly father Xmas god, forever giving and demanding nothing, who in fact is “another Christ”, a foreign god a liar and deceiver.
Today Satan and his disciples want to remove Messiah in you. They want to remove and destroy the word of God in you and then they will spit you out like used bubble gum.
They want to strip Messiah out of Israel, but they can’t because God calls Israel My son! With Messiah removed from Israel, it would become a son of Babylon in a flash.
The wisdom of Babylon is the wisdom of the world, which is the wisdom of Satan and the wisdom of ultimate failure.
No one is truly wise without the knowledge of God. This knowledge of God is the input, understanding is the arrangement, and wisdom is the output, and it must all be orchestrated by the Spirit of God.
The outcome of the blessing of the Lord is revealed by Moses just before he died. Deuteronomy 28:10 “Then all the peoples of the earth will see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they will fear you.”
Let My people go – to Messiah. Let the Jewish Messiah go - to My people, Jew and Gentile, in these end times!
Edition 524: June 2nd 2020.
Why am I here?
These are the words of life!
Statistics reveal that there is a huge surge in suicides worldwide in these days. For some biblical advice on it: Click HERE.
I wrote this edition in March last year well before the virus or these present troubles hit: “Disorder out of chaos” Click HERE.
What is the purpose of life and why am I here? All the craziness is accelerating. So many things are in upheaval, but in the midst there is available peace beyond measure.
All the psychologists, psychoanalysts, shrinks and bespectacled intellectuals in the world, can’t answer the question: “Why am I here?” But God has the answer and it is right here!
Modern life is like a confining, constricting maze and the pressure is increasing ever day! It’s like a dark cloud is hanging over the world.
At the end of the day it is all going according to revealed prophecy. That should speak volumes to you. God’s Spirit is being poured out and satanic spirits are becoming more entrenched in society, and it’s all heading to a grand, sudden climax!
The fallout is stress, depression, despair, despondency, desperation, discomfort, dejection, discouragement, downheartedness, disquiet and more.
But the fallout can also be peace, calmness, hope, joy, comfort and more.
The inevitability of Bible prophecy:
Firstly, everything that is going crazy now is prophesied in the Bible. God, in His foreknowledge, knew it all and said this is the way it will be. That alone is comforting.
Bible prophecy is inerrant. It has never been wrong. There are a few prophecies that contain a degree of variability and conditionality, but most are cast in stone and will transpire.
Bible prophecy so succinctly reveals the end of man the rebel, going his own way.
“The whole world lies under the power of the evil one.” (1 John 5:19) “Satan deceives the whole world.” (Revelation 12:9)
You must be born again to even see the kingdom of God and that goes equally for the kingdom of the world. The world doesn’t want you to see its god. If you can’t see the true God because He has been removed from society, you can’t see the world’s god either, and you doomed.
Job 12:24-25 “He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, and makes them wander in a pathless wilderness. They grope in the dark without the light, he makes then stagger like a drunken man.”
Unsaved man is equal under the sin of Adam. All man’s works good and bad can’t save you. With a heart full of sin, including all your good sin, you can’t fix the world or anything at all in the kingdom of God, because you will poison it, with your fallen nature.
All the opinions of man are in fact a powerful force of influence, if you are not strong in the Lord, and tragically, few are in these days when it is needed more than ever.
The values of hell are arising in the world and taking root on the elimination of the values of God’s word. New, wicked, behaviour and actions always arise on the acceptance of ‘new’ revolutionary theory, which is disguised and dispensed to the masses by the media.
●The spirit of the world is one with the spirit of evil. It ridicules the things of God, glorifies man and the world-system, and blinds people to sin, righteousness and coming judgement.
●The Spirit of truth reveals God, glorifies Messiah and convicts of sin, righteousness, and judgement.
Jeremiah 10:23 (Amp) “O Lord, I know the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man, even a strong man and man at his best to direct his own steps.”
Like two railway tracks incorrectly laid, with a growing distance between the widths, they soon end up far apart. This is the lot of modern man. He is so far from God, and getting further apart, and he doesn’t even know it.
Life’s big question:
Okay, so, the modern post-God world has created a new godless world, but it is stressed out, afflicted, anxiety-filled, like a freaked out monster of a man, in distress and disquiet.
Modern man sits back and asks – why? What’s it all about? Is it worth carrying on? Why am I here, and in so much anguish? ‘There must be a better way’, he says to himself.
He thinks: “If only I could have some delight, joy, peace, calmness and blessing in my life. If only I could have some assurance that I have some value and worth. Why am I here in this mess”?
The big answer to the question is: We are here because we are destined to ‘drip’ with the abundance of all things glorious, to rule and reign with our Lord forever. We are here because we have a grand purpose, beyond our wildest imagination. We are here being preparing for it all now.
The devil and his people know that, although they won’t say it. They create the opposition that we must face and overcome, making us strong in the process.
We are to overcome all obstacles to our faith. There is nothing laid up for the non-over comer. Great reward is laid up for the victor.
Seeking reward out of selfish ambition is wrong, but seeking reward because it fulfils God’s purpose is right. It is a powerful motivation for service, holiness, endurance.
The church today is on the brink of its greatest victory ever. Many will get shot down and fall by the wayside in the attacks, but many will arise as strong as a lion and do great exploits for our Lord.
Everyone who enters heaven will be extremely grateful, but there will be regret also, as some look back and see that their entrance was not as “abundant” as it could have been. (2 Peter 1:11)
The answer to the big ‘why’ question lies in the stunning, wonderful, prophesied future, which is what we must look to now. (2 Corinthians 4:18)
The soon coming Barabbas:
The same people that cried “Hosanna” to our Lord riding a foal cried “give us Barabbas!”
The name “Barabbas” means ‘son of his father.’ One Bible manuscript indicates that his first name was, “Jesus.” But this Jesus, son of his father, came to kill, steal and destroy. These were the things he was in prison for. These are the very characteristics of Satan.
Nothing has changed! Today the world is again crying, ‘give us Barabbas’. They don’t know that they are crying for the Satan himself. And they will get him with all his lies, killing, stealing and destroying!
The world is trying to re-define God and His truth, on their terms while kicking out the true God and His ways. The spirit of Barabbas, the antichrist himself, with no cross of cleansing is soon to ride into a world crying for him in there thick blindness.
“If you forsake the word of God, you will praise the wicked.” (Proverbs 28:4)
It is Yeshua, the sin free One with the cross of salvation, or Barabbas, the sin-filled one, with no cross and a counterfeit salvation for his followers. Imagine being so blind as to pick Barabbas!
It is Yeshua or Barabbas, the Christ or the antichrist, the white horse rider (Revelation 6:2 )or the white horse Rider. (Revelation 19:11)
People reject the cross of Calvary and God the Judge. They condemn God for bringing judgement. They want a god who does not judge sin. They need a true sinner for that. They end up with the murderer, thief and destroyer, the one who judges God!
There is extreme danger in rejecting God and His word, because you also reject His love and His judgement. You therefore become the supreme judge – doomed!
●Mankind without God is in command of his future and destiny – or so he thinks, but he will run into God the judge of all.
●Man without God is in command of his money and the economy, but he will run into God the judge and the banks and the economy will collapse.
●Man without God is in command of his entertainment, education and information, but he will run into rejection from the true God and become a subject of Satan.
●Man without God is a blind, machine, being driven by hosts of spirits.
Isaiah 30:1-2 “Woe to the rebellious children, says the Lord, who take counsel, but not of Me, and who devise plans but not of My Spirit, that they may add sin to sin. They go down to Egypt (world in type) and have not asked My advice. They strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh (antichrist in type)
Please take note of the gravity of this verse above!
To have a truly godly life in these days you must separate yourself from the spirit of the world and from the cry for Barabbas.
Psalm 94:20 “Shall the throne of iniquity, which devises evil by law, have fellowship with You?”
Why the outpouring of sin and wickedness now?
The current world situation of chaos on so many fronts is interesting. I have maintained for some time now that we are seeing the forerunners to the four runners of the apocalypse. If there are forerunners to the big four horsemen, it would not be surprising that there are forerunners to other tribulation events too.
The Bible speaks of the restrainer of evil being removed so that antichrist can be revealed. The restrainer is the Spirit-filled church and the removal is the rapture. Our presence in this world, with the indwelling Spirit in us, is a form of restraint of evil.
What we are seeing now is the forerunner of the removal of the restrainer. What we are seeing is a very light taste of the release of evil, compared to what is coming in the tribulation!
Here is one of the tribulation riders. We are now seeing the forerunner to this:
Revelation 6:4 “Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another, and there was given to him a great sword.”
When you remove God from society, you remove God’s law which defines what sin is and you become the judge. But it is you who is one with Satan, if not born again! So in fact Satan in you becomes the judge of God, and sin flourishes!
Where we are today is a Mickey Mouse situation compared to what’s coming in the tribulation. If you are not saved and you have any common sense in you, you need to get saved now.
The search for answers:
People now are searching for answers. This means there is a great responsibility on Bible teachers to be right and led by the Spirit. There is also great condemnation on false teachers, prophets, false watchmen, and frauds, and there are many!
It is the false shepherds, false prophets and teachers that talk much about love, but without corresponding correction, judgement and holiness.
The more you set yourself to be in line with God’s truth, word and Spirit, the more meaning and purpose you find to your life. The more you do it, the stronger you become and the more of a bright shining light of wisdom available through you, for other to benefit from.
To be truly, successful with eternal results you must set your heart mind and soul to return to ancient paths. This is where the great keys to the kingdom lie. (Jeremiah 6:16)
Jeremiah 31:21 “Set up signposts, make landmarks, set your heart towards the highway...turn back to these your cities (of truth).”
There are certain ancient keys to spiritual success and answers that only they will unlock.
The ancient keys open the doors to the correct course of your life. The keys of the kingdom lead to the good road of eternal glory.
The more you get into the Bible, led by the Spirit, the more you see how well Satan has deceived the world. We are not called to win the world to a world-like church! We are called to testify against the world and to expose its evil.
We shine Gods light into its dirt, which causes the dirt to flee. Reassuring the world that everything is fine is how to curse it and yourself!
The times they are a changing! This is the season of sudden shocks and you must be prepared to stand strong, even though the time is very short.
Someone said of the astronauts who have just left the earth – ‘Good choice!’ Well, I say of all true believers, we are not astronauts, we are astro-somethings and where we are going shortly comes by our good choice and, you can’t come unless you have the right ticket!
Poor astronauts, they go to a stupid tiny, wonky space station and then they have to come back to a broken, hell-filled earth. We come back to a fixed, holy, pure, godly, glorious earth after seven years in heaven.
Even nature itself is barking with joy, in anticipation of our return and we haven’t even left yet! (Romans 8:18-19)
Beware of finding your answers for life with the masses. The masses become a defined entity, with an illegitimate, stolen authority. They are seldom right!
Beware of finding your purpose for life with the materialistic, money mad preachers of today.
Biblical salvation is the new birth, which comes with purity, holiness, perfection and God’s glory. Satan’s ‘salvation’ is an awakening to his godless ways, and life, with sin and evil entrenched.
- The true Christian has “peace that surpasses understanding”! (Philippians 4:7)
- “There is no peace for the wicked.” (Isaiah 48:22)
- “Wickedness is in the heart of man.” (Genesis 6:5, Jeremiah 17:9)
We are to judge ourselves now so that we will not be judged or condemned with the world.
The majority consensus is a lie. The masses are always blinded by their prejudice and tunnel vision, based on group think and speak.
Isaiah 7:9 “...If you will not believe, you will not be established.”
Isaiah 54:14 “In righteousness you shall be established. You shall be far from oppression and you shall not fear, nor from terror for it will not come near you.”
Today’s watchmen, Bible teachers and counsellors.
I encourage you to read and study the following verses. Know them well!
Joel 3:14 “Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision, for the day of the Lord is near.”
Proverbs 14:25 (Amp) “A true witness delivers souls, but a deceitful witness speaks lies and endangers lives,”
Proverbs 11:14 “Where there is no counsel the people fall; but in the multitude of counsellors (godly) there is safety.”
Isaiah 33:6 “Wisdom and knowledge (of God) will be the stability of your times, and the strength of your salvation. The fear of the Lord is his treasure.”
Genesis 6:3 “My Spirit will not strive with man forever.
►On the subject of the current social unrest and riots, Romans 13 says that the office of the authorities is of God. If an authority messes up, deal with it, but do not disrespect the office of the authorities.
What we are seeing is the rejection of God’s authority structures, which is in itself a rejection of God. This of course, makes way for the acceptance of evil and the antichrist.
It’s not about cops or criminals, or black lives matter or human rights. It’s not about Covid-19, lockdown, economic collapse, or any of these things. It’s about the vehicles for control, preparing for the antichrist to ride onto the stage.
When we see and know these things we know the answer to big question - Why?
When we know why, we rest, and instead of being stressed out. We have peace.
Why are you here? You are here to fulfil God’s call and plan for you and it is a plan of great glory. You cannot live in the peace of God and be fulfilled, if you live for self. Remember that self’s home is the world, and both have been infiltrated by Satan. We are to die to self and the world.
Psalm 18:32 “It s God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect.”
Isaiah 43:7 “Everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him.”
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace, not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
This is a combination of some of my pictures and my semi-abstract art.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
