Shabbat Shalom to all!
Who owns your truth?
Jeremiah 2:11-13 “Has a nation changed its gods, which are not gods? But My people have changed their glory, for what does not profit. Be astonished O heavens at this, and be horribly afraid. Become very desolate says the Lord. For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters and hewn for themselves broken cisterns that can hold no water.”
Many people are at a crossroad right now. Which way they go will bring them great victory or deep darkness!
Jeremiah 13:15-16 “Hear and give ear; do not be proud, for the Lord has spoken. Give glory to the Lord your God, before He causes darkness, and before your feet stumble on the dark mountains, and while you are looking for the light, He turns it into the shadow of death and makes it dense darkness.”
Job 21:14 “They say to God, ‘depart from us, for we do not desire the knowledge of Your ways.’”
We have a growing divide right now between the godless liberal left and those that stand for a nation under God. The divide is actually correct, because “two can’t walk together unless they be agreed.”
O f course political parties don’t agree that’s normal, but all should agree on one ultimate authority and provider of truth – God and His word. The basic principles of the virtues of God should be held in esteem above the law of the land or politicians in all nations.
The removal of the word of God from society places it in godless jeopardy with Satan and his word now the authority. Pelosi is a good example of that. So many things get removed from society when the Bible is removed including the all important four swords revealed in the Bible:
●The sword of murder, ●the sword of Capital punishment, ●the sword of war, ●the sword of the Spirit.
If you remove the Bible’s definition of murder (homicide) it sends a message of tolerance with crime and destroys deterrence. If you remove the sword of capital punishment, you meet out injustice to the victim. If you remove the sword of war, you create a nation of push-over pacifists. If you remove the sword of the Spirit, you remove the authority of the believer and make him defenceless.
This is the way to weaken a nation right at its foundation. It is the way of liberals!
You need to be aware of this and the intensifying evil spirits at work otherwise, you are in big danger.
The great reset will produce the great eternal regret at the end of the day.
You can attack the truth, but remember, God owns the truth. You are attacking Him. The Bible may bleed for a few seconds, but it will be you who will eventually and eternally!
God owns the truth, and if the truth is in you are owned by Him and are unshakable, safe and secure. The truth is unbreakable and unchangeable. It will break those who try to break it, it always does.
The political mayhem is one side of the present day troubles. The mutating virus is the other. Both are changing the very face of the world right before us.
On top of the socio-political upheavals on the go, the virus is mutating and spreading faster than before. These things are all causing great stress in the world.
►Will things return to normal? Absolutely not! A vaccine is not a substitute for repentance. You can’t take a pill or get a vaccination to remove the results of the disease of sin! (I am in no way coming against those who take the vaccine. I’m talking generally)
Will God accept a vaccination instead of repentance?
Things can only return to normal if we are far from the whole end-time train rolling in. We are not far, but very close to the whole picture unfolding.
Why is God calling loudly for repentance now through so many of His voices? It is because time is running out fast and He wants people as holy as possible, ready for heaven at the rapture. He is also preparing Israel for a sudden return to holiness, so that they can be effective witnesses and evangelists in the tribulation period.
It’s also because the world’s wickedness has gone into overdrive and is speeding up. It’s because of where we are on the grand prophetic calendar.
(By the way, I have some incredible revelation of some familiar verses on the rapture and Israel, which I will share soon. It will destroy some deeply held, but incorrect views.)
Don’t you think it’s interesting that the church has failed in her commission to the Jew, while the Jew in the tribulation will be very successful in taking the gospel to the Gentile!
The big reason for the rapture is not the great escape, although that is quite true. It is to bring in the last Gentile and then see the veil removed as the gospel goes to the Jew.
Matthew 23:37-38 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often have I want to gather your children together like a hen gathers her chicks under her wings. But you were not willing! See your house is left to you desolate.”
When Bible prophecy is on the march, what a terrible thing to be left behind and right out of it, with no idea of its existence and relevance!
►1 Thessalonians 5:20 “Do not despise prophesies.”
The word “despise” is Strong’s G1848 ‘Exoutheneo.’ Meanings: Despise, set at nought, make contemptible, not to be esteemed.
This verse above means you had better wake up fast to Bible prophecy, even if your parrot behind the pulpit won’t touch prophecy.
Most importantly, it also means that presumptuous, always-wrong prophecy teachers and watchmen are the very ones causing prophecy to be “set at nought” and “made contemptible, not to be esteemed”
False watchmen are prophecy killers and faith killers!
Proverbs 12:19 “The truthful lip shall be established forever, but a lying tongue is but for a moment.”
For your edification:
You need to be spiritually strong in these days. You must be clearly defined in who you are spiritually and in all areas of your life.
We have as part of the church the happy clappies and hands up church (me included) and the no-happy, no-clappies, hands down, boring, dead, denominational non-spirit filled crowd, with no insight except that of the world.
Even if you are not in a local church you need to be demonstrative in your walk with our Lord. Once you are Spirit filed, even in your home alone, raise your hands in prayer and clap your hands, and if your dog bites you, serves you right for hiding your spirituality.
Edition 529: July 7th 2020.
Peace or torment:
Peace is coming. Universal, supernatural peace is coming soon. Peace is a fine, loving, comforting friend. Torment, stress and anxiety are peace-killers. Both are on the stage.
In this edition I have some very comforting peace-producing snippets on the peace-tribulation rapture for you.
Psalm 85:10 “Mercy and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.”
Both peace and torment are fruits of either God, or a god manifesting in you. There are two forms of peace. One is a natural peace, the absence of trouble, and the other is a deep inner God-rooted peace, which is exclusive to believers.
The definitions and meanings of the two words, “peace” and “torment”, speak volumes.
Peace: Strong’s H7965: “Shalowm”. Meanings: Peace (inner), peace (from war), completeness, soundness, safety, prosperity, quiet, calm, tranquillity, friendship.
Torment: Strong’s G929: “Basanismos”. Meanings: Inflicted tormenting on-going torture, agony. A testing touchstone of black siliceous stone used to test the purity of gold or silver by rubbing and stressing, (tormenting) the gold on the stone.
Torment has some similar characteristics to stress and anxiety, but it is generally more intense. Torment and fear are associated. Torment is often directly associated with demon spirits.
1 John 4:18 “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. He who fears has not been made perfect in love.”
In relation to the world, peace is coming, but peace comes after judgement cleans up the mess. We saw that so clearly with the ark of Noah, when the peace-dove returned and the ark came to rest on Mt Ararat after the judgement of God. Ararat means: “The curse is reversed.”
There is also a counterfeit peace in the world. (John 14:27)
The tribulation of torment:
The soon coming tribulation period will be a time of extreme torment and stress. So much so that people will try to kill themselves to escape it, but “death will flee from them.” (Revelation 9:6)
Revelation 9:5 “They (locusts) were commanded not to harm the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. They were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. And their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man.”
Revelation 14:11 “The smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever and they do not rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”
Zephaniah 1:14-18 “The great day of the Lord is near. (Tribulation period) It is near and hastens quickly. The noise of the day of the Lord is bitter; there the mighty men shall cry, that the day is a day of wrath a day of trouble and distress, a day of devastation and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness. A day of trumpet and alarm, against the fortified cities and high towers! I will bring distress upon men and they will walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord. Their blood shall be poured out like dust. Neither shall their silver nor gold deliver them, in the day of the Lord’s wrath.”
Many reading these words right now need to see and understand the foreboding gravity of the situation. If not saved, you need to get saved now. You do not need to go through the tribulation!
John 16:33 “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you might have peace. In the world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer for I have overcome the world.”
God won't override your choice. If you go through the tribulation it will be your fault!
Proverbs 1:24-29 “Because I have called and you have refused, I have stretched out My hand and no one regarded, because you have disdained all My counsel, and would have none of My reproof, I also will laugh at your calamity and I will mock when your terror comes...The they will call on Me but I will not answer; they will seek Me diligently, but they will not find Me, because they hated knowledge (of God) and did not choose the fear of the Lord.”
Value accurate spiritual teaching:
Psychology, philosophy, ideologies, and your world-view are not the same anymore. Today they are all spiritually charged minefields.
Your teaching is vitally important. It lays your foundation and sets your course. It is the real cause of the degree of your spiritual eyesight and insight. It leads you into all truth or repeatedly into error.
Your teaching decides your worldview. It leads to victory or failure. It prepares you for heaven or the tribulation and then hell.
Seeing these things in the world is not good enough; you must have God’s light in your sight to see rightly. You must see things from His perspective, in the confusion.
Colossians 1:28 “Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Messiah.”
Torment and terrible trouble is just around the corner for many masses of people.
You cannot stop Bible prophecy. It is destined to occur. But you can stop and protect yourself for the affects of it.
To be protected, you need to know your enemy, and you need to know how to protect yourself. You absolutely need the gifts of the Spirit, and the spiritual weapons of warfare. All of these come from accurate Spirit-led teaching.
Please note the word the Lord gave me for this year, (Isaiah 47:10-11) at the top of the page. This verse is addressed to end-time Babylon, which is the modern world socio / economic and political order. The verse says that the world cannot stop the troubles from coming.
The people of the world think that everything will carry on as normal and they won’t go into terrible torment or see great sorrow. How wrong they are:
Revelation 18:7-8 “In the measure that she (Babylon the great) glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow, for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as a queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’ Therefore her plagues will come in one day, - death mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.”
Now is not the time to give up or take it easy. Now is the time of salvation. Israel! Now is your time of salvation. Wake up from you deep sleep.
►The big sign of the Lord’s soon coming for the church is Israel’s awakening. The big sign for Israel’s awakening is the church raptured!
Joel 3:14 “Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.”
Exciting days are here. Times of great conflict are here. Times of great clashes in the spirit realm are here – manifesting all around us.
We are to be a blazing fire of enthusiasm and excitement for our Lord. A bright fire produces light and also burns up garbage.
The true church is the verge of her greatest victory ever. We are about to enter the eternal kingdom of eternal peace.
A big slap in the face for communism / socialism, which is trying to create a new world of peace and equality, is the eternal state of the true Christian. We will not be equal!
We will be as different as the stars and as different as gold silver and precious stones. We will only be equal in the foundation – the cross.
What a terrible thing to get to the end of your life, having done your very best all your life, and find it all rejected by God, because salvation is not works-based.
A minister full of life is a fraud. He must be full death and life. He must be full of the work and effects of the cross on the flesh and the results of the cross which are resurrection, pure life in Him.
Great, powerful proofs of a pre-tribulation rapture:
Some of these things are so obvious, yet they have eluded so many Bible teachers.
►One of the great proofs of a pre-trib rapture is the fact that the church does not appear in any of the verses dealing with the tribulation in the book of Revelation, after the messages to the seven churches, until the return from heaven at the end of the tribulation.
►Why in the tribulation period is there no evidence of the celebration of the Lord’s Table? There is only record of the celebrating of the Lords feasts? Communion is specifically a church-age convocation. Its absence in the tribulation speaks!
Does that imply that the church is missing from the tribulation? It most certainly does, especially when added to the other points.
►There is also no evidence of the laying on of hands to impart spiritual gifts amongst the tribulation saints. Again, that silence speaks.
►There is no evidence of the gift of tongues, a church-age gift, being used in the tribulation period. In fact quite the opposite is the case. “Tongues will cease” in an instant. (1 Corinthians 13:8) That will be at the rapture.
These things are distinctly church age characteristics, missing in the tribulation period!
►The Bible talks of the separating of the sheep nations and goat nations in Matthew 25:33. This event clearly takes place at the end of the tribulation, at the Second Coming and not before. So, who then are the sheep nations?
They are the none other than the tribulation saints, which includes all those who were saved during the tribulation period, both Jews and Gentiles.
If there were to be a post-tribulation rapture, this would mean that the sheep nations must include the church. It would mean that the church goes from the tribulation into the Millennium to repopulate the earth in natural bodies, with longevity restored.
That creates havoc with numerous other verses; these ones below are a case in point:
►The church in heaven at the marriage feast, is identified as those wearing “fine linen, clean and white, which is the righteousness of the saints”. (Revelation 19:8) Then a few verses on, we see a great company of saints on white horses again wearing clean, white, fine linen accompanying our Lord on a white horse back to the earth at the Second Coming (Revelation 19:14)
We see saints in heaven in clean white linen, saints on horses in clean white linen returning to earth at the end of the tribulation. That can only point to a pre-tribulation rapture.
►At the Second Coming only the saved are left on earth to go into the Millennium. Sheep are saved and goats (unsaved) go into the lake of fire. At the rapture the unsaved are left on the earth. (Tribulation saints get saved as the tribulation continues).
►There is a remarkable and great difference between the coming of the Lord at the rapture and at the Second Coming. The former is secretly in the air, in a flash of time, in a moment, and the latter sees our Lord slowly, gradually returning to the Mount of Olives, as He left. The verse remarkably seems to stress the point that His feet touch the ground.
That means you can’t mistake the one for the other.
As you look at these points above, and there are many more that I’ve spoken of in numerous previous editions, you should be comforted that we are not going through any part of the tribulation period. You may rest well, at peace knowing these things.
After the rapture there will be some who didn’t believe in the rapture, at the marriage feast. They will be easily identified by the egg on their faces.
Prophetic expectation causes excitement and diligence in watching. So watch and don’t let your heart be troubled, don’t get sidetracked being a turkey. (At the marriage feast you don’t want to be served a dish of flavoured turkey food!)
Biblical Spirit-led truth is peace-producing, genuine love in action, but the world has turned it into hate speech! Don’t fall for that. Be bold, be strong.
There is no peace for the wicked (Isaiah 48:22)
These verses below show the horror of those who think they can build a new world of peace their way, without sin being removed by the cross!
Jeremiah 23:16-17 “Do not listen to the words of those who prophecy to you. They make you worthless; they speak a vision of their own heart, not from the mouth of the Lord. They continually say to those who despise Me, ‘The Lord has said you shall have peace’. And to everyone who walks according to the imagination of his own heart,’ no evil shall come upon you.’”
Ezekiel 13:10 “They (prophets) have seduced My people saying ‘peace’, when there is no peace – and one builds a boundary wall and they plaster it with untempered mortar...it will fall.”
Isaiah 59:6-8 (Separated from God) “...Their works are works of iniquity, and violence is in their hands. Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood. Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they have not known, and there is no justice in their ways. They have made themselves crooked paths; whoever takes that way shall not know peace.”
The peace of God:
Isaiah 9:7 “Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end...”
Psalm 37:37 “Mark the blameless man and observe the upright; for the future of that man is peace.”
Psalm 119:165 “Great peace have they that love your word and nothing causes them to stumble.”
Isaiah 32:17 “The work of righteousness will be peace and the effects of righteousness quietness and assurance forever.”
Peace matters. Eternal life in peace matters.
Being warned so that you are not caught unaware and prepared is extremely positive, not negative!
How good it is to have a world view and in fact a general philosophy of life that is laced with living truth. Imagine getting to the end of your life and finding out that you were right with God, and not only that, but that you will be rewarded with eternal rewards!
Imagine getting to the end of your life and being greeted and welcomed by the King of Kings and Lord of lords, - the King of the universe.
Imagine getting to the end of your life, and the grandstands of heaven give you a standing ovation to welcome you in. (Hebrews 12:1)
How wonderful to cross the line into eternity and the light shines on your life and you have a few regrets, now forgiven, and an ocean of comfort, peace and beautiful immortal majesty. How amazing is the thought of paradise soon to come, with brilliant radiance, deep joy, and peace.
You can sense it when someone wants to be your friend. Often times you can just sense it! Well the King of the universe wants to be your best friend and give you peace.
Romans 13:12 “The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness and let us put on the armour of light.” (1 Corinthians 9:24)
To embrace God’s truth is to put your arms around it and embrace peace.
How thrilling and exciting it is to be in service of our Lord and to be secure in His kingdom of glory.
I took the picture of the stralizia in my garden. I Imprinted the leaf into some liquid rubber, painted and texturised it and merged the two.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
