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 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!
