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 538: September 8th 2020.
Trumpets now or next!
The rapture, now or then!
Regular readers know that I (and many others) maintain that the rapture will take place on a Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah). In fact I have maintained that it is impossible for it to take place at any other time. Of course the big question is which Feast of Trumpets?
I began my journey into the Feasts of the Lord when I was about 2 years old! I grew up in a Jewish neighbourhood. My mother taught in a Hebrew nursery school, so I was thrust into Hebraic culture from the day dot. The fridge was often full of gefilter fish! But it really all came alive to me in the early 80s.
So the feasts are nothing new to me. I have shared on their importance since TPS began.
We are ten days away and closing in fast on this year’s two-day event.
It is still possible for us to fly away this Feast of Trumpets, but it is increasingly less likely.
The all important dispensation transition:
The seven feasts are in fact an astonishing, miraculous picture-type of the major world prophetic peaks. They reveal the great dispensation changes from the Old Covenant to the New, back to the culmination of the Old Covenant as seen in the seven year tribulation, and then the transition to the dispensation of the Millennium.
But here is the all-important, severe and critical point: The feasts annihilate and destroy anti-Semites and “Christians” in replacement theology!
Passover, Unleavened bread, Firstfruits and Pentecost, were prophetically fulfilled by the work of the cross, through to resurrection and the church age. These collectively relate to the church.
The Feast of Trumpets through Atonement to Tabernacles relates primarily to Jewish time, and the events of the tribulation, leading to the Millennium. (See diagram below.)
Many say that all the feasts were prophetically fulfilled by the church. You are then saying that the last three feasts (in blue below) have no required fulfilment by Israel. You are simply replacing Israel with the church, making you a pure proponent of cursed replacement theology.
We are now on the very doorstep of the great transition, just like the seasons, from one dispensation to the next. The big question now is: Are you truly saved?
The professing, confessing, non-born again, so-called Christians who will be left behind at the rapture will suddenly be faced with their most heart-wrenching question ever: “Why me? I’m not a Jew or a Muslim; I’m a Christian, why was I left behind?”
The rapture will reveal what real salvation is and isn’t. It will reveal how far from repentance the left-behind crowd are. It will reveal who truly loves the Lord and His word. It will reveal in an instant the shocking truth of God’s word. It will reveal who has sold their soul to the devil, knowingly or not.
Many Christian leaders say that the feasts are for the Jews and we have our own convocations, like Christmas and Easter. Of course they don’t know the origin of their pagan convocations. They were founded by the early Catholic church and introduced to keep the Jews out of the church.
The command of God is to make the Jews jealous and to take the gospel to them first, not keep them from the church! (Romans 1:16, 10:19)
Isaiah 57:14 “...Prepare the way, take the stumbling block out of the way of My people.”
The Bible speaks of one of the beasts of Daniel (Rome) being given power to deceive by changing times and seasons. This would refer to changing the Gregorian (Catholic) calendar, changing the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday and the introduction of Babylonian Christmas and Easter.
I was listening to a Messianic Rabbi the other day, bemoaning the terrible curse the church has inflicted on the Jews, by removing the feasts and replacing them with the pagan festivals of Easter and Christmas. He said there were very few Jews in Israel that would ever identify with and participate in these Babylonian pagan practises.
Jews had already been in Babylonian captivity once before!
Christians who participate in and support Christmas and Easter are participating in paganism. They do so because their good friend, the world does so very well.
The church has an amazing blind-spot in this area. The blind-spot has developed over time into a belief-bias. They think that Christmas and Easter are of God.
They have fallen for the group-speak of the world. Tragically, group-speak becomes group-permission and belief!
Here is one of many verses that kicks group-speak in the head:
2 Corinthians 10:12 “We dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves, but they, measuring themselves by themselves and comparing themselves among themselves are not wise.”
The verse below is the glorious opposite of the world’s group-speak, belief, and blind-spot bias:
Jeremiah 6:16-17 “Stand in the paths and see, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is, and walk in it, then you will find rest for your souls...They said, ‘we will not listen to the watchmen.’”
When Israel returns to the Lord, they will be pure and holy!
Zephaniah 1:4 “...Against the inhabitants of Jerusalem, I will cut off every trace of Baal from this place, the names of the idolatrous priests, with the pagan priests.” (Baal = pagan, Babylonian custom.)
Some key names and terms for the Feast of Trumpets:
The feast begins on one of two possible days, when the new moon is sighted. It is therefore called the feast of which no one knows the day or hour.
If I said to you that the rapture / tribulation start will occur on a Feast of Trumpets, I cannot be setting a day or hour!
Anyone who says the rapture will take place on a Feast of Trumpets can’t be accused of date-setting!
The feast takes place in the “twinkling of eye.” This is a Hebrew idiom referring to that brief time when the sun sets over the horizon, producing a last twinkling. Do you see the relevance?
The feast is also known as: The opening of the gates of heaven. (Psalm 118:19-20, Isaiah 26:2, Revelation 3:7) But Israel remains on earth to fulfil the final feasts prophetically, so who are the gates of heaven opened for? Hmmmm, I wonder!
The Feast of Trumpets always occurs on Tishrei 1st, the beginning of the Hebrew New Year. The word “Tishrei” means dissolving sins. It also means “you shall begin.” It is the time of the ultimate new beginning for Israel and the church in their new bodies and new locale – faaaaar away!
This feast is also known as the feast that confuses the devil, because of its variable starting date.
There are many more incredible factors, parallels and types. You will find some of them under the link on the right, headed “Editions by subject” and “Feasts of the Lord.”
The timing of the rapture / tribulation start:
Romans 11:25-26 “I do not desire brethren that you be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel, UNTIL the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And then all Israel will be saved.”
The word used for “come in” is Strong’s G1525: “Eiserchomai”. Meanings: To go into, as food enters the mouth; To arise and come into a new existence; To come to life.
We can write the verse this way: “Blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles (church) has gone in the rapture. And then all Israel will be saved...”
It is Israel that comes to life, and the church that comes to a new resurrection life – fully completed for ever!
The prophet Habakkuk asked the Lord: ‘How long, O lord, until these things (violence and treachery of the wicked) come about?’”
Habakkuk 2:2-3 “The Lord said, ‘write the vision and make it plain on the tablets that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak and will not lie...’”
We see that we can know the time. Note the Lord’s answer: “It will speak and not lie.”
That simply means that we are to wait until He speaks or shows us.
The Lord may speak within the next few days leading up to Trumpets. I am listening. I am also not going to lie and make up all sorts of things to make a case, when the Lord is silent on the issue right now.
Only the remnant few will be ready and go in the rapture. Many who think they are saved are not!
The glory of the Feast of Trumpets:
It is the only feast that recognises and identifies the end of the times of the Gentiles and the start of the time for the Jews.
It is the only feast that effectively condemns replacement theology.
The hidden gems in this ancient feast are truly marvellous and quite shocking for those who have been kept in the dark about it all by their church leaders.
The Feast of Trumpets is marked by 100 trumpet blasts in various patterns. The trumpet is the shofar. Some of these shofar blasts represent:
●The anniversary of the creation of the world. ●A call to repentance. ●Hearing God’s voice. ●Calling to Messiah to come quickly. ●The day of judgement to start. ●The ingathering of Israel. ●The awakening of the dead.
Have a look at this amazing, prophetic verse below. Note that masses will come to worship on the Temple Mount. That should tell you a thing or two about the future of the Mount!
Isaiah 27:13 “In that day, the great trumpet will be blown, they will come who are about to perish in the land of Assyria and they who are outcasts of Egypt, and shall worship in the holy mount at Jerusalem.”
Generally, I don’t put a lot of weight on things like this, but this is interesting so I will just touch on it:
From the Feast of Pentecost this year to the Feast of Trumpets, is 113 days. This number 113 represents the “long hot summer” and speaks symbolically of the length of the church age. Just to see what would come up, I typed into the search engine, “Prophetic meaning of 113” This is what came up: “The snatching away of the saints.”
Psalm 113:7-9 “He raises the poor out of the dust, and lifts the needy out of the ash heap, that He may seat him with princes – with the princes of His people.”
“Shortened day” – Wrong!
I have seen so many fancy, astronomical, mathematical, exercises of linguistic gymnastics trying to show how the days of the tribulation are shortened. (Matthew 24:22)
So severe will the tribulation be that people will seek death. It will be a time like never was, or ever shall be, in its terrible severity.
It will be so severe that the Bible says, the days will be “shortened” (That is an incorrect translation.) They will not be shortened. The days are clearly numbered, measured, given and determined. If it is shortened it is not seven years long.
The correct translation of the word “shortened” is “cut out in time.”
Once saved always saved – Wrong!
In these dangerous days where the suicide rate is dramatically escalating and many believers are giving up, it is important to address this subject now.
It’s always good to know what constitutes salvation and where the limits and boundaries are. It goes to your spiritual preparedness.
Those who claim ‘one saved always saved’ are doing you a disservice, as you drop your defences!
When you are truly born-again, the Bible says that nothing or no one can snatch you out of the Lord’s hands. This all goes to eternal security for the true believer. But there is one missing candidate in the verses that can cause you to lose your salvation.
It is you, yourself. You can willingly, by choice reject the Spirit of God from yourself.
You do not drift in and out of salvation. Sin does not cause you to lose your salvation, neither does a backslide. But beware of the following verse!
I have never heard an acceptable explanation for this frightening verse from any proponent of ‘once saved always saved’:
Hebrews 6:4-6 “It is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit (believers) and have tasted of the good word of God and powers of the age to come, if they fall away (complete), to renew then again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame.”
Not only does this verse show that you can lose your salvation, it shows that if you do, you can never get it back again! There are others like it too.
Revelation 3:5 “He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life, but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.” (This implies that you can have your name removed.)
Interestingly, the Bible says that sin has been removed by the cross. That is past tense. It is a done deal. The problem with sin in the believers life is that it resurrects what God has removed by the cross, effectively nullifying the work of the cross in that area!
Sin has been removed, but your resurrecting of it slowly eats into your very being. Walking in holiness is the way to go!
Too many come looking for salvation as a sort of sponsorship, or cheap insurance policy or some sort, like a commodity, but they will not die to self, the world and the demonic.
Then there are the untold masses who think they are saved, because they put their hand up in church and said a sinner’s prayer.
There are many fruits of salvation. “A tree is known by its fruit.” If you are truly saved it will be seen in your fruits and in your ongoing relationship to the world, the flesh and demonic, and of course, in your thinking:
►World: 1 John 5:4 “Whatever is born of God overcomes the world.”
►Demonic: 1 John 2:13 “You have known Him, and you have overcome the wicked one....”
► Flesh: Galatians 2:20 “I (self / flesh life) have been crucified with Messiah...He live through me.”
►Thinking: 1 Corinthians 2:16 “...We have the mind of Messiah.”
Salvation is free, but it is extremely costly. Salvation of the soul (not spirit) is where the work is required. Do you know the terror of the Lord? (2 Corinthians 5:11)
The good news is that when the blessed hope of our salvation is complete, we will be just like our Lord – fully glorified! (Romans 8:30, 1 John 3:2)
The trumpet / shofar of God is about to sound: Exodus 19:16 “The sound of the trumpet (shofar) was very loud, so that all the people that were in the camp trembled, and Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet with God...”
If it’s not this year, it will be next – stay tuned. I can assure that I will be keeping a very close, prayerful watch, and will keep you on the cutting edge too. Be blessed dear friends!
