Personally: I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share these great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God.|

Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah and to identify the rift, and the needed restoration. There is much in the church that needs to change before it can be fully reconciled with the Jew. Likewise, changes in Jewish thinking are also needed.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
“Expectation”: One simple little word with so much meaning!
Bible prophecy creates in us great expectation and excitement and hope. It brings things from the spiritual dimension into reality.
But as you can imagine, it does the opposite when the expectation is built on false prophecy, error and pure lies. It then all works in reverse. The failure kills the expectation, the excitement and hope. It actually goes much further in wrecking evangelism and other related Christian issues.
So when these Christian counterfeits come up with all these new dates for the rapture and others things found in prophecy, do they think of the damage they are causing to others? Of course not! – All they think of is themselves on a pedestal.
Rather than enhancing the gospel, they are attacking it!
Well, we have just had the giant failure of the July 17th 2019 rapture predictions made by many of those who published You Tube videos and teachings on how “for certain” this was! “It’s 100% for sure,” they said. “The Lord told me” they said. “I had a dream about it” they said. The rapture is July 17th2019 they assured all their gullible fans.
Their evidence was of course totally shockingly inadequate, superficial and absurd, to say the least!
The problem is their influence on the weak and gullible.
Let me clarify my position on the rapture again. Firstly I which it was yesterday!
►I believe that the most possible scenario is on the Feast of Trumpets. This would be one in which the other prophecies on the ground all dovetail. The Feast of Trumpets qualifies because it is the only one of the seven that could start over one of two days. Remember the Hebrew idiom and name for the Feast of Trumpets: “The Feast of which no one knows the day or hour!” This is because “No one knows the day or hour of the New Moon’s sighting. It does not mean: “No one knows the time!”
There are many other amazing aspects to The Feast of Trumpets and its associated meanings and applications, which I deal with as we get closer. But again, I say, there are many things that must be dovetailing together, otherwise – back to the drawing board!
With all of these date-setting failures in mind and the multitude of other attacks on Christians and the word of God, it has and will thrive until its grand conclusion!
Just think of it: Christianity began with 12 ordinary people, they were all martyred for their faith. The gospel spread around the world at lightning speed, and is still doing so today. And yes you are one of the participants of it all.
- Heaven is already rejoicing at your coming! (Luke 15:7)
- Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming...” Isaiah 14:9
You will receive a welcome into eternity! Which of the two verses above will be your welcome?
When the good news of the Kingdom arrives it marches in and kills the evil spirits of witchcraft and creates and makes new communities of glory growing forever outwards.
Do not grow discouraged by failed date-setters. Protect your faith and strengthen it. Keep your expectations and hope high. Be very discerning. Be holy now.
Revelation 22:11 “He who is unjust, let him be unjust still: He who is filthy, let him be filthy still. He who is righteous, let him be righteous still. He who is holy, let him be holy still.”

May you be blessed of our Lord, Saviour, Father and Great God and be inspired in some way to move forward into the glorious things He has prepared for you.

●Dire USA warning
●Why the Iran election result was no surprise
Isaiah 62:1 "For Zion's sake I will not shut up and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until her Righteousness goes forth as brightness and her salvation burns as a lamp. The gentiles shall see your righteousness"
These are headlines and news snippets that have some prophetic significance, which I discuss briefly in the "commentary" section below. Very little of this will be found in the mass media.
●The US may stop supporting Israel at the UN. Obama says this may be the best way to punish Netanyahu because of his refusal to to meet his demands on the abolishment of settlements.(Israel Today June 1st)
●Obama reshuffles America's Middle Eastern allies
●US to send military team to Syria. This is to improve relations. But some analysts see it as a strategic move to further ring-fence Israel. (Reuters)
●Now the US tries to stop Israel from building a hotel on it's municipal owned land in Jerusalem, calling it a "settlement" (AP)
●Israeli PM says, "we will not stop settlements for natural growth, despite Obama's pressure" (Jerusalem Post)
●Obama says Iran has the right to have nuclear power (Washington Post June 2nd)
●Iran could have a nuclear bomb this year, says report in Israel Today (June 1st)
●Russian expert says nuclear bomb catastrophe "inevitable" (Professor Vladimir Kulagin, Moscow University)
●Iran now has enough low-grade uranium for a single nuclear bomb.(IAEA 5thJune)
●IAEA finds more uranium at second site in Iran (June 6th)
●Obama to Netanyahu: So, what about my peace plan? The US intends "strong arming" Israel into accepting their peace plan within two years. (Netanyahu aide)
●Israeli PM Netanyahu to make major policy speech within days. Hamas to make major policy announcement next week.
●Ahmadinejad wins Iran election.
Iran: The Iran election results were no surprise. Ahmadinejad is now back at the helm and ready to fulfil his ill-fated destiny. He believes that he is the forerunner to the coming of the Islamic Mahdi who will unite the Islamic world and form an army to defeat all the enemies of Islam.
His mystical pre-occupation with the so-called coming of the Mahdi and his desire to eliminate Israel places him in the same position as the Nazi dictator. This makes him an extremely dangerous character who could trigger all sorts of prophetic events.
Iran's Ahmadinejad seen skipping through the fields after his election win:
The headlines I have chosen above are only a small snippet of thousands all declaring much the same thing. When you see one or two headlines you may miss the significance and if you don't know at least the basics of Bible prophecy, you will definitely miss the significance.
I have deliberately chosen and presented these headlines like this, because they make the significance a lot clearer. It is not just this presentation though, there are so many other things all dove-tailing together now, that the situation is becoming a little more than URGENT. (Have a look at the headlines in previous editions as well, they add more weight to these issues).
America, be warned your days are numbered! "Mene, mene, tekel, upharsin" These strange words became known as the "writing on the wall " from God warning of Babylon's soon demise. Daniel interpreted them as, "God has numbered your days and brought you to an end, you are weighed in the balances and found wanting" Mighty unsinkable Babylon came to an end just after this.
Aspects of America could be described as modern Babylon. It's judgement is long overdue because it's modern Christians have become tolerant of all things evil. In the name of tolerance tyranny now awaits them. There has been one and only one reason why the USA has remained largely free, prosperous and secure in the face of their evil, and this is simply because they have been a bit more than a friend to Israel. They have the stood by Israel in their six wars since independence and in many other ways. God has blessed America for being Israel's primary friend and He has stayed long overdue execution for all their incredible evils. (God says if you bless Israel you will be blessed and if you cures Israel you will be cursed)
Now the story is changing before our eyes and it is changing fast! The one thing that has been the salvation of the USA is now being eroded. America, the writing is on the wall, for you now!
America's Obama is shifting allegiances in the name of world peace. He is not only turning his back on Israel, as he tries to befriend the Arab world, he is actually obstructing Israel's own future.
Another thing worth remembering is that peace means different things to different people. Peace to the world of Islam means, an Islamic world. Peace to Islam means surrender of everything that is not Islamic. Islam believes it is the final work of God and He is now finished with Moses and Jesus and therefore the Jews and the Christians have no legitimacy. You don't believe me? I dare you to research it!
Peace with the true, living God comes from knowing Him, being known by Him and following Him and His ways.
Don't get me wrong, I love America. It has done more for the world in terms of science, technology, medicine, evangelism, and just about everything you can think of, it's evils aside. But all of this is about to come crumbling down as they run headlong into the fury of God. No it won't happen in five minutes, but time is short!
The Bible declares that Gods anger will arise as the nations try to divide the land of Israel. This will bring war and not peace! (Joel 3) and dividing or "moving" Jerusalem will bring all nations into conflict (Zachariah 13)
It's not just America though, in fact they are late arrivals. Most of the nations of the world are now on this deadly road as they unite to pressurise Israel into a satanically inspired soon coming disaster. The nations of the European Union were the main instigators of the world's roadmap to peace, and have now been joined by the US.
Isn't it interesting that the EU headquarters as seen from above is in the shape of the satanic broken cross or so-called peace sign:
If you don't already know, let me remind you that this sign is not the peace -sign it is the hell-sign! It originates from satanic worship and occult practices where the arms of a cross are broken, representing rejection of the true cross and it's meaning.
The roadmap to peace is the roadmap to war:
Why then is the world's "roadmap" the path to war and not peace for the Middle East? Well, it's simple...God's word declares the land of Israel (all of it) was given by Him in an "eternal" covenant to the Jews. The covenant, which includes the blood line of our Jewish Messiah comes through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and not Ishmael (Arabs). Part of the plan of God for the close of the age involves the Jews in their land, coming to salvation and being the bearer of truth that they were originally called to be.
There is a often miss-applied portion of scripture in Romans 11 which speaks of the calling of God being without repentance. The correct application and context (derived from previous verses) is referring to the calling of God to Israel. It will be completed!
In the Bible we see the Abrahamic, Davidic covenants and others all with reference to the Jewish people in their God-given land and it's all for God's own grand purpose. Modern man's roadmap to peace is perhaps one the greatest deceptions of our day and flies in the face of God's choice.
Just have a look at these incredible portions of scripture relating to the land of Israel and Gaza! Talk about throwing a cat amongst the pigeons!
Joshua 15 speaks of the inheritance of the children of Judah which includes Gaza!
Amos 1:6,7 speaks of the destruction of Gaza because they (Philistines) tried to take it captive. vs13 widens this to include other Arab nations, who "will be destroyed because they tried to enlarge their territory" (The Philistines relate to the Palestinians. In fact in Greek the word Philistinos is the same as Palestinian)
Zech 9:5 and on speaks of the fact that Gaza will be very sorrowful and it further says that God will cut off the "pride of the Philistines"
Judges 2:1,2 "I led you from Egypt and brought you to the land which I swore to your fathers and said I will never break My covenant with you, and you shall make no covenant with the inhabitants of this land. You shall tear down their alters..."
This amazing portion of scripture foreshadows the terrible and tragic, soon coming peace treaty to be signed between Israel and the person who will be revealed then as the antichrist. This will launch the most severe judgements of God on the world ever known to man called the "tribulation". The first three and a half years will see terrible geological upheavals, with a dangerous socio-political peace and then all hell breaks out in every sphere for the remaining three and half years.
Ezekiel 11:17-19 "I will gather you from the nations and peoples where you have been scattered and I will give you the land of Israel...then I will put a new spirit within them and take out the stony heart out of their flesh"
A frightening portion of scripture declares that the person that will become the antichrist will "divide the land of Israel for gain" Dan11:39 This will most probably be related to the coming peace treaty.
Ps 83:4, "Come let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more." Oh yes, we will see!
The world has forgotten that the Bible also declares in Zechariah 51:19,20 "Israel is the tribe of His inheritance and you are my battle-axe and weapons of war, with you I will break the nations in pieces"
Zechariah 2:8 Speaking of Israel "He who touches you touches the apple of My eye"
Here is a very interesting snippet of information: The Nazi's tried to destroy the Jews and they were destroyed. The US actually helped in their destruction by putting an end to the second world war with an atom bomb or two. Germany was already finished by this stage, but the US was involved anyway. Very shortly afterwards, the US was involved in the most amazing fulfilment of prophecy by setting up the UN whose, first major act was to pass a resolution recognising a Zionist state...the nation of Israel. Yes that's right! The UN actually gave birth to the Israeli state.
A few days later the Arabs revolted and the war of independence broke out. A small ill-equipped rag- tag army crushed many invading Arab nations. The US came to Israel's aid then and in all the wars since. Israel with the help of God and the US won all six wars against incredible odds.
Now the story is changing fast as the US changes it's tune and the UN, the EU and the rest of the world all turn their backs on Israel.
We are now seeing the futile attempts of the whole world to bring about peace, which will result in catastrophic judgements from God and it's not far off!
Gods roadmap leads through the golden gate of His choosing into peace and glory now and in time to come.
I did say last time that I would present you this time with a teaching on the "the timing of the coming of our Lord and saviour. It is not quite ready, so you will get it next time.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and hang in there!
