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 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!
