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 failure to use 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 535: August 18th 2020.
Knowing the time (Part 2)
In the last edition (“Knowing the time Part 1”) I spoke of knowing the time through the prophetic times of the seasons, the Feasts of the Lord, the progressive revealing of end-time details, and more.
I want to continue the theme, but with an emphasis on what is about to break out.
But before we continue:
There is only one way to stay safe in these days. It is to know your Bible thoroughly and to know its author personally and have Him at work by His leading in your heart, through His gifts of the Spirit. All of this takes extreme diligence and a life of time. Many say that they don’t have the time for all of that. That’s exactly why they are a spiritual nothing!
More on the error of “no one knows the time:”
Now, all you end time teachers, and preachers of “No one knows the time” (Matthew 24:36) I’m going to rattle your cage – are you ready?
If you read the “Of that day and hour, no one knows” verse of Matthew 24:36 and the surrounding verses to get the context, you will note that they are all talking of the conditions prevalent during the tribulation. Then after our key verse, all the way to the end of the chapter, the subject remains the conditions of the tribulation period.
So Reverend minister; are you telling me that one single verse in the middle of an entire discourse of 51 verses dealing with the tribulation, suddenly switches to the church age and the rapture, when everything else is speaking of the tribulation?
In terms of Bible hermeneutics, exegesis and logical laws of interpretation, you can’t do that. You must keep things in context.
To be consistent with the context, “no one knows”, has nothing to do with the rapture. It is speaking of the conditions that will occur in the tribulation.
By the way, the entire seven-year tribulation is referred to in some verses as the Day of the Lord and the hour of trial. So there is your “day and hour.”
You can use this verse in application to the Feast of Trumpets, which is also called “The feast of which no one knows the day or hour.” But that is application and not interpretation.
But all is not lost. There will still be a pre-tribulation rapture. You just can’t use that verse for the rapture. If you do, you are wrong!
The real big sign for the rapture is the awakening of Israel and the approaching of the antichrist and his peace covenant. (This is absolutely not any previous covenant arising to be confirmed, or any existing deal, or anything close to the Deal of the Century.)
It is very important to know and understand what the antichrist peace deal will be and what it won’t be, because these things are all spiritually charged.
The peace plan of the antichrist: (Daniel 9:27, Daniel 8:25, Daniel 11:21-24)
Let’s look now at the antichrist’s peace plan, so that we can see what it contains, what is still needed to come about and what it is not.
●It will include the breaking of the Abrahamic, eternal covenant God made with Israel. (Isaiah 42:6, 28:18) ●It will include an international Jerusalem (all of it) with a temple on the Temple Mount. ●It will include peace with the Palestinians and Arab neighbours. ●It will include the end of war with Israel’s haters. ●It will involve dividing up the land in major divisions. ●Perhaps the greatest achievement of the antichrist deal will be the establishment of a temple on the Temple Mount and the conversion of Jerusalem into an international city. ●The main thing of the antichrist’s peace deal is that it will be accepted and immediately and come into play, right from day one. ●All nations will be in agreement with it.
The individual who gets this peace plan up and working will be revealed as the antichrist.
The Trump / Kushner Deal of the Century is no such thing.
If you claim that the Deal of the Century is it, then you are saying: ●Trump is the antichrist. ●The Temple Mount is ready for the new temple as per the agreement (of which there is no provision in the Deal of the Century). ●You are saying that all nations (“the many”) have already agreed to this Deal. ●You are saying that Palestinians have accepted the Deal. ●You are saying that peace in the Middle East has been achieved ●You are saying that Jerusalem proper (not a little spot east of East Jerusalem) has been divided out for a Palestinian capitol. And much more, that simply isn’t in the Deal of the Century!
Again, let me remind you that the Deal of Century is null and void because of its rejection by almost all nations, including the Palestinians.
Some say the antichrist deal will be the confirming of the Oslo accord. Others say it will be the confirming of the Deal of the Century. – Hogwash to both!
The original word used for “confirm a covenant” means “to establish a strong deal.” The word does not mean the resurrection of an old null and void deal.
The Oslo accord is so far dead in the water that it could never be resurrected. So many things have changed since then anyway. The Deal of the Century does not fulfil any of the requirements of the biblical, antichrist deal. It would also have to be totally re-negotiated. It is dead in the water.
The Deal of the Century, although rejected, may be revised, to some degree, or see some parts of it being implemented, but as a whole, it does not fit the bill at all.
We have just seen a peace deal between Israel and the UAE, brokered by the US come about. It too has been rejected by the Palestinians. Interestingly there is a peace deal being planned now between Saudi Arabia and Israel and some other smaller Arab nations, including Bahrain, Oman, Morocco and Qatar.
Lebanon may join the peace effort according to flying rumours.
These, collectively may become part of a bigger peace deal, but as said, the antichrist deal revealed in the Bible must include all of the items I’ve mentioned above.
►These individual peace deals with Israel are prepping the world for the big one, but none are the big one yet.
The coming Peace Covenant:
This is what may transpire: It may occur very suddenly – and probably will. It will bring the antichrist onto the stage. It will immediately produce a deceptive peace pact or covenant.
There will be a huge war called the war of Gog and Magog (Ezekiel 38 & 39). It may include the war of Damascus (Isaiah 17) and the Psalm 83 war altogether. It will be WW111.
The end of this war in which God and His Israel are the victors sees the beginning Israel’s eyes being opened to Messiah, which also signals the end or near end of the church age. It also marks the start of a great many of Gentile nations turning to the Lord in the tribulation. (Ezekiel 38:23, Ezekiel 39:29)
This war will break out very soon, and will be hugely devastating. It appears to be a very short and swift war in time. It does contain a familiar “seven-year” period of cleaning up after the war.
The war, in which Damascus and Amman, Jordan are destroyed, will be so intense and devastating that it will last one day. It will be when Israel’s economy is waning, as it is now. (Isaiah 17:4, 14) (See also Jeremiah 49:2, 23) There is much more on the destruction of Jordan (Moab) in Isaiah 16. This could all be part of the Ezekiel war.
Most wars lead to a peace treaty. Out of this war will come the Daniel 9:27 peace agreement and antichrist - inspired real peace deal!
By the way, many biblical scholars claim that these three wars are all separate events because some have different nations involved. All three wars have this phrase somewhere: “And many nations with them.” So you can’t separate the wars by identification of the participants, because many are unnamed. When you look at the geographic locations of the wars, they could quite easily all be the same war, just being spoken of differently by different authors.
A WW111 scenario is the most likely. That is what I sense the Spirit of the Lord is saying.
I have written about exactly this in numerous editions going back 20 years or more, so it’s nothing new for me. What is new is that we are seeing so many of the ducks all lining up in a row to get their heads blown off!
One big reason why these peace deals now can’t be the big one is because war is prophesied to be next on the prophetic agenda. Peace comes after war not before it.
Truth in these days:
In all these things we desperately need the full truth and the leading of the Spirit. We are in a world of growing deception and multitudes of opinions.
The truth is free, but it is of great cost. It will revolutionise you, shatter you and remake you. It will shine on you and give you glorious light. It is absolutely essential.
The ancient walls of Jerusalem are a very present “Bible” full of bullet holes of hatred. They are speaking the eternal truth of God. That truth is cast in those stones and hidden in the Dead Sea pots, now revealed, inscribed on rocks of ages and emblazoned in the Tzizi of the Hebrews.
All these things are coming to life now.
The truth of God’s word has stood securely since the day dot, and now speaks to millions who have ears to hear and eyes to see. Its ancient prophetic predictions are being revealed in our day.
Amazingly, the group-speak, in error, of the masses, and hordes of hell, led by evil spiritual forces, think they can nullify and overthrow the ancient truth and the Ancient of Days as well as the “Desire of All Nations”, (Israel) (Daniel 7:9-10, Haggai 2:7)
We are advised to return to the “ancient paths, where the good way is, where you will find rest for your soul.” (Jeremiah 6:16)
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.”
Truth makes you strong. Error makes you stupid. Removing God’s truth from society puts the masses in terrible agreement! (Hosea 4:1-2)
The masses are of an illegitimate, stolen authority, a lie! They are never right!
The stability of a nation and the whole world in fact, is seen in a number of factors. They are: ●A strong church. ●Strong family units defined by God. ●Protection of the unborn. ●A strong god-fearing government. ●Secure property rights and ownership. ●Strong borders. ●Business friendly laws. ●A strong police force and legal system. ●Strong godly morality in the nation. ●Freedom of worship in all forms for the church. ●Protection of the environment (and red setters)
If you look at what’s going on in the world today, do you see the spirit of Satan at work?
Things are coming together very fast:
Many things are falling into place very fast!
I have just seen a report indicating that a peace deal of some sort is about to come into being between Saudi Arabia and Israel. That’s a big one and would fulfil the prophecy of Ezekiel 38 in which “Sheba” (Saudi Arabia) is seen as an ally with Israel in WW111.
These peace deals with Israel are hated by the militant Arab nations and the Palestinians and their servants and slaves, the EU and UN.
They are important now, because of their frequency and timing, but as said, none are the antichrist peace treaty yet. But they all have a sinister, hidden agenda behind them.
When is the time?
Knowing the truth without the leading and enlightening of the Spirit by the gifts of the Spirit, is knowing “dead letter.” You will get as much inspiration as you’ll get from a Mickey Mouse comic.
2 Thessalonians 2:3-8 “Let no one deceive you by any means, for that Day (tribulation) will not come unless the falling away (departure of the church) occurs first and the man of sin is revealed...And now you know what is restraining, that he (antichrist) may be revealed in his own time...He (the church filled with the Spirit) will restrain until He is taken out of the way (rapture). And then (Lit=immediately after) the lawless one will be revealed...”
I’ve included (in brackets) some key explanations of the words used in the verse above. It paints an extremely dramatic picture doesn’t it? Please read it again and again!
So, what is coming next? When will these things take place?
It is war that is coming next and very soon. It is WW111.
Matthew 24:7-8 “Nation will rise up against nation and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pangs.” (Tribulation)
What this verse is saying is that the birth pangs will precede the tribulation. That is a perfect parallel with what I have called the forerunners of the four riders of the apocalypse.
We are now in the final stretch of birth pangs and forerunners!
►Note that the birth-pangs include war! This points to the fact the war comes first, then a peace deal as a result of the war and then the world goes into the tribulation.
The rapture takes place as this lot begins.
When the time is absolutely not!
The time is not when the “always wrong” brigades of YouTube ministries say it will be.
It will not be way off in the distant future sometime.
It will not be when anyone who says “no one knows the day or hour,” says it will be. It can’t be because of their own confession.
It is very important to properly distinguish between what is going on and what is not. Case in point: Many say the church is in great trouble and falling into apostasy. Many talk of great revival on the go right now, with some churches springing up with over 300,000 members. (India)
Both are true. Some of the churches, particularly in the western nations, and amongst the non-Spirit filled denominational churches, are already stone dead. But others are growing fast, particularly in the eastern nations.
Many are falling away and many are standing strong. It’s all a matter of focus. Don’t focus on one side only, it will mess your balance up and your objectivity.
You see that picture I made up at the top with all the clocks? One of them at the bottom is not a clock but a compass. Just as important as knowing the prophetic time, is knowing the direction you are going!
If we see no sign of the arriving of the antichrist, who will be pre-announced by a coming peace treaty, involving the biblical components mentioned here, within a few weeks, we will have to be prepared to wait another year!
So far we are on track for a “Trumpets” departure. (I hope)
This is one of my earlier paintings done with a palette knife and some softening techniques.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
