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 550: December 1st 2020.
Peace and stability.
Don’t worry, be happy, ooh, ooh, oo-ooh!
Shaking causes a reach for stability. Stability endures.
Stability is needed when things are shaking. The shaking has begun! “I will shake all nations and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory.” (Haggai 2:7)
Isaiah 33:6 “Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times and strength of salvation. The fear of the Lord is His treasure.”
Revelation 6:4 “Another horse, fiery red went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth and that people should kill one another, and there was given to him a great sword.”
The real intense shaking will occur in the tribulation period, through which we will not go. But it won’t all begin on day one. We are now in the forerunner period.
In these troubled times the heart of man is being shaken. People are coming apart at the seams like never before and that includes many Christians.
Here’s the staggering contrast in these two verses below.
Isaiah 2:19 “They shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, from the terror of the Lord and the glory of His majesty, when He arises to shake the earth mightily.”
Daniel 2:44 “In the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed...it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms and it shall stand forever.”
We are heading for 2021. Interestingly the number 21 has biblical meaning “great wickedness!” The number 20 representing this year 2020 has a biblical meaning of “Completed waiting period.” The number 19 for 2019 and Covid-19 means “Judgement.” You can find more on this Here.
Are these things coincidence? I think not. But don’t go overboard on them.
What is interesting to me is that there are so many of the solid Bible teachers today speaking of great dramas about to fall upon this world. I concur!
The prophetic ducks are all lining up in a row fast. The world has been consumed with the pandemic and the US elections, but the next of the forerunners to the tribulation is about to break out and that is war. It is already simmering. It will create a massive shaking.
Covid-19 is increasing fast, but bear in mind that it is just the vehicle that is being used to bring in world control on a massive basis. It is the forerunner in some way of the mark of the beast.
James 1:5-8 “If any of you lacks wisdom let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea tossed about by the wind. Let that not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord. He is a doubled minded man unstable in all his ways.”
Isaiah 7:9 “...If you will not believe, surely you will not be established. (Stabilised).
For stability in the Christian life, you need to have a revelation of God Himself, of heaven, of hell, and the eternal reward state.
Stability comes from knowing where you come from, and where you are going. We come from “before the foundation of the earth”, we are “seated in heaven” and we are going to “rule and reign” with God in a kingdom of eternal glory. (Try telling that to the local shrink!)
When the believer retreats into his soul for sustenance, he finds a well of godly, stability and peace amongst all the turmoil.
When an unbeliever retreats into his soul for sustenance, he finds the instability of the uncrucified self, the world and a host of demons.
It is the self-life that is unstable, being linked in many ways to the god of confusion and instability – Satan.
Here is a most important key:
When you look into a mirror do you see your goodly self looking back? Or you may see the Lord looking back. If so you are a victim of deceived teachers. If you see Barabbas looking back, you have been taught right!
You see, Barabbas was a liar a thief and a murderer, just like you and me. He side-stepped execution, and like a scapegoat, fled into the world.
When you see Barabbas looking back you can execute him on the cross and then arise to newness of life.
No cross, and Barabbas rules your life, believe it or not. We are at peace with God, with self on the cross.
The world is the home of Barabbas. We are to die to self and the world and to come out and be separate. We are to cleanse ourselves and not touch what is unclean, and then the Lord will be a special Father to us. (2 Corinthians 6:1)
Proverbs 4:23 (Amp) “Keep your heart with all vigilance and guard it for out of it flow the springs of life.”
Peace: Strong’s H7965, “Shalom.” Meanings: Safety, prosperity quiet, tranquillity, contentment, lack of war. Covenant relationship with God.
Luke 2:14 “Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace towards men (that are His)”
Here now is the amazing thing about this often misunderstood verse above. People believe that Yeshua has come to bring peace to the world system. Have a look at the amazing meaning of the word “peace” used in this verse:
Peace: Strong’s G1515, “Eirene.” Meanings: Messiah’s peace, the peace of Christianity, peace through salvation, state of tranquillity, exemption from war, havoc and rage and harmony between individuals. The blessed state of devout and upright men of God after death.
Yeshua did not come to bring peace to the world, but peace with God through the cross. If you could have world-peace now your world would be in a cross-less world full of sin, just as it is.
“In Me you will have peace.” (John 16:33)
The work of the cross produces eternal glorious life, peace, holiness, strength, reality of the supernatural, stability security, freedom and victory – forever.
Be careful of love, peace and unity at any cost. Based on that, you may end in hell! All of the fruits of the Spirit must be attached to tree of truth otherwise they may be rotten!
Without the cross all of these things are a cheap, deceptive counterfeit. Tragically, many Christians are enemies of the cross too. Enmity towards the cross often grows.
Enemies of the cross are friends of sin by default.
Philippians 3:18 “Many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping; they are enemies of the cross of Messiah.”
Galatians 6:14 “God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, by whom the world has been crucified to me and I to the world.”
Peace without the cross is the antichrist’s “peace.” It is the “peace” of hell. True peace only comes by the new birth as does the entrance to the kingdom of God.
Peace is a person who now lives in your heart, the fruits flow outwardly. “He is our peace.”
Let’s have a look at some glorious verses on peace:
Psalm 85:10-11 “Mercy and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. Truth shall spring out of the earth, and righteousness shall look down from heaven.”
Psalm 37:37 “Mark the blameless man, and observe the upright; for the future of that man is peace.”
Romans 8:6 “To be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”
2 Peter 1:2 “Grace and peace be multiplied to you, in the knowledge of God and Yeshua the Messiah.”
The kingdom of God is in righteousness and peace.
God’s programme is to bring in a new world through the Prince of peace. Satan’s program is to try to bring peace to this old world through the antichrist.
Liberalism is not just another socio-political way to peace. It is a spirit of error as can be seen in its consistent, never ending attacks on the virtues of biblical morality. It is a curse, supposedly bringing unity and peace, which it does not! It produces enslaved control.
Socialism makes the state a god. In so doing; and of necessity it must get rid of the true God of peace.
Socialism is the big force creating togetherness, equality and oneness, with sin intact. Biblical Christianity is the great separator.
The meaning of the word “holy” is “apart!”
2 Peter 2:12-14 (False teachers) “Like natural brute beasts, they speak evil of things they do not understand...they cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls...they are accursed children.”
1 John 5:4 “Whatever is born of God overcomes the world.”
The spirit of heaviness today:
With all the stresses and strains of today, and an extremely bleak outlook for the world, many are suffering from numerous psychological disorders.
Psalm 42:5 “Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God!” (Verse 11 – repeats this, as does Psalm 43:5)
The Bible talks of the “spirit of heaviness.”
The heaviness could be well-described as stress, strain, anxiety, torment and the like.
But note that it is caused primarily by a spirit! This is the key to victory – not the local shrink! Psychology does not recognise or deal with spirits! There is no pill you can take to get rid of spirits. Often when you are under a cloud of psychological problems they rub off on others.
Malachi 2:8 “You have departed from the way; you have caused many to stumble at the law (word)...”
You need to be equipped in spiritual warfare to identify spirits and then cast them out.
People under severe stress tend to be inward looking. “Woe is me” is their chant. As you look inward you look to self and Barabbas sitting on your throne. Guess what the answer is? Kill Barabbas! Execute him.
When you apply the cross to self, you die to all these stresses and strains and are on the way to victory.
John 16:1 “These things I have spoken to you, that you should not be made to stumble.”
The wisdom of God in your heart mind soul, and in your very veins sets you on fire, glowing with the things of God. It makes you passionate, zealous, strong, stable and hotly holy! It also makes you a fierce opponent of sin, evil and wickedness.
Job 33:33 “Hold your peace (shut up) and I will teach you wisdom.”
Job 15:8 “Have you heard the (secret/hidden) counsel of God? Do you limit wisdom to yourself?”
The example of the disciples:
They really were a mixed bunch of ordinary men of the day. They were unstable initially, until they really encountered the living God through their varied ways. Twelve men produced an “army” that tuned the world upside down.
They were greatly loved by the early church and greatly hated by the devil’s crowd. They ended up being stable to the point of terrible martyrdom (except for John). What turned Peter the one who denied the Lord earlier, to save his skin, into a willing martyr?
Martyrdom today is on the rise dramatically. It will become far worse in the tribulation, but even now the numbers are horrific.
A martyr is one who refuses to give up, renounce, or change his beliefs even unto death. That is why Christianity has been so successful through the church age. In fact Christianity thrives and grows in the face of persecution, which also has the effect of creating unity.
The more the devil tries to stamp out pure Christianity, the more it thrives! World history is littered with popes, presidents, kings, tyrants and the like who tried to destroy blood-bought Christianity and failed.
If we could see the end from the beginning, we would be totally secure and stable.
Job 22:21-28 “Acquaint yourself with Him and be at peace; thereby good will come to you. Receive please, instruction from His mouth, and lay up His words in your heart. If you return to the Almighty, you will be built up; you will remove iniquity far from your tents...Yes the almighty will be your gold and your precious silver...You will make your prayer to Him and He will hear you...So light will shine on your ways.”
The way of the world:
The world has a way to peace. I’ve watched it all my adult life. It fails all the time, on every front just like the world’s big peace efforts as seen in the Tower of Babel, Rome, Hitler’s planned 1000 years of peace and all new-world order attempts.
Our Lord, Him in us, His word, the cross and Israel are all true peace bringers.
True peace comes on the wings of judgement. Only then do you have human evil rooted out. For the Christian we have already received judgment through the substitution of the cross. For those outside of the cross, their terror-judgement remains ahead.
Bear in mind that the meaning of the word “Noah” is “rest and peace.” The ark came to rest, after judgment on Mt. Ararat. This word means: “The curse is reversed.” Coincidence? – I think not!
World peace does not come through the gun, the tank, the submarine, or the atom bomb. It comes through the violence of the cross of Messiah. World peace through military conquest and control is the way of the world.
Missiles, big guns and atom bombs can’t fix or deal with the sin issue. It can’t make people perfect and holy.
Isaiah 59:8 “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 path will not know peace.”
Wickedness, evil, sin and violence will suddenly explosively escalate as peace is removed from the earth and the restrainer is removed in a rapturous flash.
Israel and the true church are the greatest obstacles to one-world “peace,” but soon the church will be gone, leaving Israel to man God’s fort and bring salvation to the tribulation masses (saints).
Having Israel in her correct prophetic place produces rest like the right piece of a jigsaw puzzle falling into place.
Isaiah 26:12 “Lord, you will establish peace for us, for You have done all our works in us.”
It is the truth of God’s word that is the ultimate pillar of strength and stability for us.
1 Timothy 3:15 “...The church of the living God is the pillar and foundation of the truth, which brings us the mystery of godliness.”
“Don’t be afraid” occurs in the Bible 365 times! There’s a message in that!
The Bible says there is pleasure in sin for a season. But there is pleasure in righteousness for eternity. What a wonderful life we have!
Psalm 121:7-8 “The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in, from this time and forevermore.”
John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither be afraid.” – Don’t worry, be happy, ooh, ooh, oo-ooh!
This is one of my semi-abstract, mixed media art works.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
