- US Ambassador to Israel says Trump will not evict Jews from Judea and Samaria (so-called West Bank) Pompeo says US “fully prepared for military action in Middle East.”
- US Democratic candidate, Elizabeth Warren plans to withhold aid to Israel because of the “settlements.” The anti-Israel bias is showing in the Dems again!
- Netanyahu gives up effort to form a government on his 70th birthday and returns mandate to President Rivlin, who will now give the mandate to Gantz for a try.
- Syrian Kurds call on Israel to take action against Turkey! Pompeo says Trump ready to use military force against Turkey if needed.
- Numbers of Arab states are simultaneous “warming” towards Israel. These nations are Iran’s enemies. This is a fulfilment of Bible prophecy. (Isaiah 19) Some are: Saudi Arabia (Sheba) UAE (Part of Dedan), Bahrain, Oman, and other Gulf States. Washington is pushing for these Arab states to unite in support of Israel, creating an anti-Iran alliance. There are many reasons why this would be good, for the region, including economic and strategic in relation to the Gulf of Mexico as a prime oil-tanker route.
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
Isaiah 56:5 “...I will give them (Israel) an everlasting name that they should not be cut off.”
Isaiah 66:8 “Who has heard of such a thing, shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation (Israel) be born at once?”
Hosea 11:1 “When Israel was a child, I loved him...”
Exodus 4:22 “Thus says the Lord: ‘Israel is My son, My firstborn.”
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.
18th October 2019
Shabbat Shalom to all!
- There is still no Israeli government in sight as Bennie Gantz rejects Netanyahu’s latest offer to form a unity government. But Gantz says he is thinking about it. It is this impasse that is delaying the release of the “Deal of the Century.”
- AThe US brokered ceasefire in Syria is falling apart one day after it was instituted! Mike Pompeo tells Netanyahu this morning (18th October) that the US will still support Israel.
- Late breaking news is that this morning 18th October, the ceasefire has broken down with renewed fighting, shelling and bombing in the region of the ceasefire as smoke rises from towns.
- Iran says it will continue to violate the nuclear deal as it moves to higher levels of uranium enrichment, provoking the world and Israel in particular.
- The Russian bear is making serious, strategic advances in Syria and in the wider Middle East. Iran and Turkey are fateful players, preparing the way for WW111 (The war of Gog and Magog, Syria and others. We are witnessing a very fast reshuffling of the stage.
- What we are seeing in the Middle East is battle for power and control – all perfectly prophesied!
Israel has a beady eye on it all. Prophetically, Israel must be a key component of these wars. It really doesn’t matter who does what, because prophecy will and is being fulfilled!
By the way, because the Bible prophecies certain things that does not mean it is sanctioning those things. They will come to pass right or wrong.
Bible interpretation and application:
In this report I want to draw your attention to some very important issues relating to our understanding of the Bible. These issues have always been important, but now as we head into these dangerous end-times, it is of critical importance.
We need to understand that Bible prophecy comes in various forms. Sometimes it is written directly for the present time exclusively. For example, the prophecies of Isaiah 17 relating to the soon coming destruction of Damascus, Syria, have never had an occurrence in history. Therefore its interpretation and application is for one point in time – now.
Then, we have many prophecies that were events that took place historically. That would be the interpretation. But they may have application to future events. This is called prophecy with a double reference. In these cases you need to be well disciplined in your application. Never take and application or analogy too far!
In dealing with prophetic application you must always be on guard against presumption. You really do need the gifts of the Spirit to correctly see into prophecy. Bear in mind that the word of God is useless, dead letter, or it is alive and presently speaking. The baptism in the Spirit makes the difference.
Sometimes a prophetic vision or message may be built on a number of different sources, and like a grand conductor, the Spirit of God puts it all together.
Prophetic interpretation and application must not contradict any verse in the Bible.
There is much to be said about prophetic dreams and visions. Personally, I don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater, but I’m very cautious. More so from whom they originate.
But, the Bible says that there will be an increase in dreams and vision as the end approaches. We must be watchful, but also watchful in relation to whom these dreams and visions come from, because many, in their pride, are on the manipulation band wagon!
The central purpose behind all prophecy is to reveal and inform us about the coming of our Lord, It is o give us knowledge, understanding, wisdom and sight of His soon coming and all the events surrounding His coming. It is bring Israel face to face with her Messiah.
Bible prophecy also reveals the work of the enemy. It reveals the modern kiss of Judas in replacement theology!
Time is very short!
We must always beware of spiritual novices with some of these gifts. Many of them create a big mess, which has to be unravelled.
We must always be aware of the spirit in and behind certain Bible teachers and ministers. Too many have a pride and ego problem, which the devil uses to bring in great error. Too many are subtly creating division, which becomes a sect and finally a cult!
Beware of those who come with forcefull "private or personal interpretations". (2 Peter 1:20)
Here is a shocking portion of scripture:
1 Corinthians 1:10-13 “I plead with you brethren, by the name of our Lord, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgement...Now I say to you this, that each of you says, ‘I am of Paul’, or ‘I am of Apollos’, or ‘I am of Cephas’, or ‘I am of Christ.’ Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptised in the name of Paul?”
This scripture above is a terrible indictment on the church. Today we see so clearly, the disastrous effects of a church divided. Yet we still the proud and arrogant, trying to “capture” and control people in their divisive sects.
There is strength in unity. There is extra strength in godly unity. In these days a solid Spirt-led knowledge of God’s word is an absolute necessity and a safety net
You should listen to no one who has does not have the evidence and fruit of listening to, and understanding the voice of God. There are many voices out there, all vying for your attention. Learn to be discerning and shut off the voices of the world.
In your pursuit of God and in your own study time, you need to be seriously disciplined. I heard someone say the other day: “They’ve taken away discipline in the schools now the children don’t respect us, their parents anymore.”
How true and tragic that statement is. It applies jus as well to your relationship with our Lord. No discipline no respect for Him and don’t expect to get anything from Him.
Part of our discipline involves waiting patiently for our Lord. What alternative do we have? But keep your spiritual eyes and ears open. Things may suddenly develop very fast!
Edition 482: August 13th 2019
Stop in your tracks!
These are words of life!
Stop – take stock! Take heed. Check yourself, examine your faith. Are you a Christian? Are you standing solidly and securely with our Lord in these days of shaking? Or are you blindly following the masses and the opinions of man and the traditions and culture of society?
John 11:25 “I am the resurrection and the life whoever believes in Me shall never die.”
“You will never die.” What an incredible statement!
Yes “You will never die.” But – “You will be changed.” (1 Corinthians 15:51) And “You will be like Him.” (1 John 3:2) What a difference that makes!
The implications of never dying are far above all we can even imagine with our own intellect. Do you know that it is above your ability to even imagine the glory of what lies ahead for true believers? (1 Corinthians 2:9)
We will not all be the same in the resurrection. We will, in terms of foundation, but what each one has built on the foundation of salvation will vary as the stars in brightness.
There are some very sobering facts about what lies ahead in resurrection for believers.
“God will judge the secrets of men. Every man’s work will be manifest”. (Romans 2:16) “God will bring every secret, hidden deed into judgement.” (Ecclesiastes 12:14)
Everything will be manifest, even our secret thoughts, then will come great reward and the new super-clean, super righteous you – forever!
Time is running out. We will all stand before the Lord in judgement for reward, or loss of reward. (2 John 1:8, 1 Corinthians 3:12-15, 2 Corinthians 5:10) The Bible also warns of “No one taking your crown.” (Revelation 3:11)
You can lose your potential reward now, by giving in the devil, but not once it has been issued in heaven. (Colossians 3:23-24, Hebrews 10:35)
Please get your head around the wonderful fact – “Your reward will never fade!” (1 Peter 5:4 Matthew 6:20)
I know I have spoken a lot about these things of late, but it is for a very powerful reason. You are on the doorstep of your eternal state! You can’t change it once done. You can change things now!
Peter said, “I will not cease to put you in remembrance of these things, though you know them.” (2 Peter 1:12)
Some personal testimony:
I’m always cautious of personal testimony, because pride sneaks in. So, I share this with you cautiously!
Many years ago I realised that the sin issue begins in the thought realm and then through to actions. To my amazement I discovered that it was not very difficult to control thoughts. In fact I can show you how now:
Cast down imaginations that exalt against God (without argument or reasoning) (2 Corinthians 10:5) do it whenever needed. Replace those thoughts with godly thoughts and do it whenever needed. (Philippians 4:8) Pretty soon clean thoughts become habitual.
Clean thoughts lead to clean hands. That then extends to your whole life.
Of course it all needs to be done with determination and prayer.
Psalm 18:20 “The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands, He has recompensed me.”
1 Corinthians 9:25 “I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.”
When you stand before the Lord, you will not be able to blame those that influenced you the wrong way. You are guilty for your own thoughts and actions.
Today, I can safely say that my life’s passion is to walk in holiness with our Lord, to know Him more and the power of the coming age.
These issues are for all time, but the Bible stresses them with greater urgency and importance as the end-time battle for the mind and the hearts of the believers goes into high gear. As the end of the age nears, these things are all magnified greatly.
This is the time when so many of these things are being thrust into frontline battle, through the media, the entertainment world and multitudes of invisible evil spirits.
Revelation 12:12 “Rejoice O heavens and you who dwell in them, but woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”
You must know your enemy. You must how he works, to be victorious over him. Satan operates through the world, the flesh-nature and the demonic.
You can’t separate the world and man’s flesh or self-nature. They are inextricably linked.
People always say, “Go to the root of the problem.” They are right. But when you get to the root of self and the world, there sits the devil, and you are stumped!
The flesh or sin-nature is drawn to the world-system. The command of God to us as believers is not to try and conquer them, but to die to them. That is the way to victory! (Galatians 2:20)
So, with these things in mind, we do not have much time left. Time for the church may well run out on The Feast of Trumpets this year. That’s the end of September. (Note I said “may”) Either way time is short to change your Christian act!
Comfort My people or kill My people! (Isaiah 40:1)
Israel is stirring, with many Jews coming to spiritual life now ahead of the tribulation. It’s in the air!
On this subject, here’s a thought to think: If God is finished with Israel as all those in replacement theology claim (and a growing number of others), that means the church goes through the tribulation and remains God’s agents of work and evangelism in the tribulation.
So what do you then do with the hundreds of verses showing that Israel is God’s chief agent in the tribulation. What do you do with all the verses about the importance of Jerusalem, a coming temple and more? Why would there have needed to be a return to the land?
The answer (for them) is, just change those verses and insert the church where you see Israel! Yet the Bible itself forbids changing even one word of the Bible!
So, you just get rid of the Jews with a fancy theology and spread it around. The churches of replacement theology do that systematically in their “respectable” neat suits.
If the church goes through the tribulation, Israel’s only function would be to disappear as a prophetic entity and become part of the church.
If God is finished with the Israel, His word can’t be trusted! Guess who is the author of that?
True Christians are the greatest friends the Jews have. Are you a friend of God’s work in this regard?
If the objective of Satan was to get rid of the Jews because out of them would come the Messiah and His church, why then does this eternal hatred still continue, now that Messiah has already been? What purpose would the Jews have to deserve being Satan’s enemy number one?
It’s simply because God has not finished with Israel! We ought to take the gospel to the Jew first and to make them jealous. We ought to stand with them and let them see that their Messiah is our Messiah too. We ought to present to them the good news of their coming salvation.
False teachers and prophets have one major characteristic. Their failed doctrine produces discouragement. They are the discouragers of the people. They encourage the lack of watchfulness and awareness.
The shining sign: (Daniel 12:3)
Isaiah 11:12 “He will set up a banner for the nations...”
We will all be displayed and known forever by the brightness of our eternal reward state. (1 Corinthians 15:41) We will be revealed without sin.
If all is to be manifest and all revealed, to whom will we be revealed in our full perfect glory?
It will be to all the family of God who know us, including those of our own personal family. We will be revealed to all believers of all ages. Abraham, Moses, David, Paul, the prophets, and all who are in heaven. The real, deep, inner you, fixed, changed and glorified will be on God’s banner for all in the universe to see and know.
All the devils, demons, fallen angels, witches, Jezebels and the entire unsaved world will see us in our complete full, rewarded, glorified state. All who have been cruel to animals and intentionally harmed the environment, will see us. They will see us with great trepidation from the wrong side of the impassable gulf!
All of creation will see us, as full completed loving true tree-huggers. All animals will see us fully revealed in shining, warm, friendly glory. (Romans 8:19)
The shocking truth:
There is so much glory that lies ahead, too much to comprehend, but what if the very basic foundational presupposition of what a Christian is, is wrong?
What constitutes a true Christian? It is not one who claims to be so. It is one who claims to be so, which is seen in his obedience to the Lord and His word.
It is one who has spiritual authority.
Obedience to our Lord also means disobedience to the word of Satan operating in the world and sin-nature of man. Disobedience to the world only needs to manifest when in direct contradiction of the word of God.
Many people say that they are believers. A true believer is one who obeys the Lord!
Obedience is pro-active and not just an academic belief. A powerful example affecting billions of people is seen particularly in the rural areas of the world’s nations. It is clearly evident in Africa. Out in the rural communities witchcraft is often predominant.
Many of these people believe in Jesus and believe that they are Christians, but they will not forsake their witchcraft beliefs and practices as well. They want both!
►Witchcraft plus Christianity = a curse!
Wherever you see a prominence of poverty in a community, you can be sure curses are at work.
Modern Christianity has sold its soul to the flaky church. They have sold their soul to deceived and ignorant teachers, and sold their soul to the opinions of modern man. For them to break free is like moving a mountain! Yes it can be done in faith, but why make your life difficult for yourself?
Many Christians only want the shallow, superficial things of God, because they won’t break with the world and its influences. That is one of the curses of today.
How difficult it is to obey our Lord when you have the modern world’s low view of Him. Vision of the true, high and exalted God, full of authority and glory, must cause you to fall down as dead before Him. All our arguments and reasoning’s must fade away in the light of His glory.
The more we live in His glory, the less we live for self, the world and its fancy reasonings.
Don’t trivialise your eternal potential and value. Don’t underestimate your importance.
These things should be a wake-up call to you!
►The way to know God is not intellectually or academically. It is in obedience to Him. Only the obedient know Him! Others are the great pretenders! Disobedience to God is replaces His wisdom with human reasoning, and pride.
Even true worship is lost and meaningless when there is no obedience.
Eve fell into the trap of reasoning rather than obedience. Your own human reasoning can easily become a stronghold of the devil, multiplying and expanding its rebellion as it goes.
Obedience to our Lord goes hand in hand with a number of synonymous doctrines. Brokenness is one of them.
The doctrine and experience of brokenness is so important in these days. It is a precursor to walking in obedience to our Lord. We need to be broken to the power of sin in us.
In many ways brokenness is like a baptism. Baptism is a type of death, burial and resurrection. This baptism of brokenness breaks open the outer-shell of man releasing the Spirit of God within, in a wonderful undefiled manner.
The unbroken cannot release the life of God effectively. On top of this, the unbroken are often still full of internal problems and tend to be distant and unapproachable.
►Brokenness releases light and the glorious aroma of the perfume that is contained in the alabaster box! (Mark 14:3) It is this perfume of God that also speaks of and even spreads holiness.
Before anyone can work for our Lord he must be broken by the authority of God. We are then stripped of our rights and self-effort and we encounter and obey His glorious authority. Then we will see sin as He does, and undergo a drastic change. We will see the rebellion of man’s heart.
Salvation under the microscope:
To be saved you must be 100% perfect and holy in every respect. All religion, including Christian religiosity, tries to make you good and right with God. Go and study they say, do this and don’t do that, try and try again.
Then along comes Jimmy the idiot, and some pastor in a beautiful shirt says, you need to be born-again, it’s as simple as ABC. So Jimmy gets saved and viola – he is no more an idiot! Now, he is perfect! But that perfection is on the inside. Now, he moves on and grows and matures in his faith, and the perfection in him, begins to work from the inside to his whole being. He correctly started with ABC and now everyone finds out that his name really is Jimmy Wiseman!
His friends are now amazed at his wisdom and they go to him for spiritual advice.
True, biblical spirituality is active, alive, and visible and can be encountered. Above all it results in growth, real growth in glory!
Only the new-birth kills you dead and re-births you – perfect. No religion can do that!
As your salvation matures, you must be growing in love and in hatred. Of course we don’t hate people themselves, but there is a great difference between hating people and the fruits – their sin!
Salvation today is far too soft on sin, which is why it is comfortably accommodated in so many churches.
Sin weakens you and specifically weakens your prayer. Your sin can also weaken others. If you are standing in the gap for others or praying for someone who needs your help, while you are in known unrepentant sin – you will not be heard. When one is weakened, so is the whole body, it knocks on!
Yes sin damages you, but have you thought of the extended damage it does to the whole body of Messiah?
The most important ingredient of your salvation is determined faith. It is almost blindly believing and lining up your life in obedience.
The verse below is totally shocking. To me it’s so simple and so profound.
Isaiah 46:10 “God declares the end from the beginning and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand.’”
What is this verse above really saying? It is saying: “Shut up news media. Shut up world”
Yet today the world and so many in the church have opted for the ways of the world instead. You tell me, is this verse below an incredibly accurate description of today’s world?
Isaiah 3:5 “The people will be oppressed, everyone by another and everyone by his neighbour. The child will be insolent towards the elder, and the base towards the honourable.”
Armour for today:
The biblical armour of God is closely related to the gifts of the Spirit. The two are essentials in these troubled end-times.
The Bible likens the armour of God to that of a soldier.
Ephesians 6:14-18 “Stand, having girded your waist with the truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness , and shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer in the Spirit...”
Here is a list of the various gifts of the Spirit:
Prophecy, serving, teaching, exhortation. Leadership, mercy. Word of wisdom, word of knowledge, special faith. Healings, miracles, discernment of spirits, tongues, interpretation of tongues. (Romans 12:6-8 1 Corinthians 12: 8-10)
So if we put the armour and the gifts together, we are well equipped for these end-times. We are a formidable foe to the enemy! But Satan has been successful in neutralising much of the church by keeping certain of these items away through false teaching!
It’s interesting to me that the churches that are falling away are those who have rejected much of these things of the Spirit, and those that are and will still stand strong are those who receive and practice the above.
The test of error:
Does the presenter have a track record of truth? Does it harmonise with all scripture. It must not be of private interpretation? Does it come to pass if it is predictive? Does it glorify and exalt our Lord? Does it contain legalistic bondage? Does it bear witness within? It must in no way cause hero worship of the presenter? Does it contain God’s complete plan for Israel?
Philippians 3:14 “I press towards the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Messiah.”
You must stop in your tracks and note the focus of your life. Do you look more and more at the unseen than at the seen things of the world? The more you focus on what you can’t see the brighter you will be! (2 Corinthians 4:18)
I took the picture of the black rhino in the Umfolozi Game Reserve and combined it with a giant baobab tree at sunset.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 481: August 6th 2019
Missing from action!
These are words of life!
A journalist, editor or artist often omits certain things – to emphasise or stress other things.
The Bible does just the same thing sometimes. It’s not a mistake. It shines a mysterious light on other important truths.
There is informative power in words, but also great instruction in “missing” words or phrases.
In this edition I will look at a few “missing” words and phrases that absolutely require a pre-tribulation rapture of the church.
The rapture is referred to as one of the great mysteries of the Bible. (1 Corinthians 15:51) The church age itself is also called a “mystery.”
Revelation 3:10 “Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.”
The term “keep you from” is Strong’s G1537: “Ek” Meaning “Clean out away from.”
Now, isn’t this interesting? The word “Church” is the original word: “Ekklesia” which comes from the same root word as “Ek.” In other words the church is a separate body out, away and distinct from unsaved Israel or any other body.
But within these word meanings we see the church itself and the rapture of the church linked with the same root meaning. The church is destined for the rapture – it’s in the name!
The book of Revelation contains seven letters to the seven churches of Asia Minor in that day. These seven are distinct in that all churches throughout history may find their identity somewhere in the descriptions of at least one of the seven.
We see our Lord walking magnificently around the seven lamp stands which are the seven churches, as the Revelation opens in chapter one. John then records the messages to the seven churches.
Then suddenly John is caught up into heaven where he receives the rest of the book of Revelation and sees many incredible things, mostly in chronological order. (Revelation 4:1) This is where the tribulation period begins on the earth.
From here onwards the church is not seen again on earth while the tribulation is on the go. It is seen in visions by John in heaven.
Does the absence of the church in the Revelation after chapter four, and the presence of the rewarded 24 elders in heaven, and believers in heaven, prove a pre-tribulation rapture? It most certainly does.
Israel suddenly becomes God’s chief agent of evangelism on earth during the tribulation.
Many people use the “so what” argument for the church being missing during the tribulation action on earth. They come up with all sorts of reasons, proving only that they have a few screws missing!
Whichever way you look at it, the conclusion drawn by the missing churches in the Revelation is very powerful indeed. They are not here on earth. Those being saved on earth in the tribulation are not the body called the church.
A most dramatic missing phrase:
All seven of the letters to the seven churches conclude with the phrase: “Let him who has an ear, hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
That’s a kind of obvious statement meaning the churches are the focus.
What is most interesting is that after Revelation 4:1, we see the tribulation on earth and saints in heaven. But as we go deeper into the tribulation that same phrase occurs again: “Let him who has ears hear.” But it stops right there. The words, “What the Spirit says to the churches”, are absent, or should we say – missing from action!
Revelation 13:9 “If anyone has an ear, let him hear.”
This is a great omission, or is it?
It would seem very odd that the remainder of the earlier-used phrase is just left out. It’s not a translational error because it is the same in all Bibles.
What does this mean?
It means that the rest of that phrase, “What the Spirit says to the churches,” is no longer valid, relevant or true for the church. Why? You guessed it – because the church is missing. It is in heaven at this time during the tribulation period on earth.
This means that this verse (Revelation 13:9), is addressed to the tribulation saints, and to Israel, God’s new saints, but who are distinct from the church.
►Also please note that the chronologically of this missing phrase places it well before mid-tribulation, placing the rapture well before mid-trib!
So, the simple “omission” of the term, “What the Spirit says to the churches” after Revelation 4:1 offers great insight.
Let’s turn it around and see what would happen if the opposite were true. If the term, “Anyone who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches” was the discourse of Revelation 13:9, it would most certainly mean that the church is being addressed, on earth during the tribulation!
My friends, this is no small issue!
Others who are missing in action:
Many Christian leaders today are missing in action, because God has sidelined them.
Many have no input of value in the Lord’s army. They are friends of the enemy and silent in their ignorance of battle strategies. They don’t even know the basics of the Bible, and some stand in a stolen “presumed” pulpit. Their authority is a lie.
Before you can work for our Lord you must be radically overturned by His authority. Only then do we see things His way!
There is some excellent preaching and teaching out there, but it just seems that the majority have no authority of God anymore. Some preach total hogwash. Some preach deafening silence. Some preach wonderful glorious truth setting people free indeed.
Remember that your silence especially on major issues of the day, announces you loudly!
Jesus has become nothing but the sponsor of ideologies and theologies, and philosophies. He is the back-pocket sponsor of many beliefs, customs and traditions. He is modern man’s agent and rubber stamp. And this is all from a low, worldly view of our Lord.
The world today is speaking, singing, shouting and screeching for Satan and they don’t even know it!
Do you know that deception is the greatest end-time plague and danger – according to our Lord, not the A-bomb! (Matthew 24:4)
Galatians 6:7 “Be not deceived”– That is a command. It is in the continuous, imperative tense. This means it is present and ongoing. So not being deceived is more radical that you can imagine. Rooting out deception must go right to the very root and continue.
I warn many of you messing with terrible false doctrine right now. You are in danger! (you know who you are!)
Too many Christians today are of the spirit of raving riff raff, and the two-step dancer of compromise. They are of the flaming flamenco and of the tango, going every which way that there is. They are the wizards of the waning world!
To adjust your life to the measure of God’s Spirit-enlightened word becomes more and more difficult the further away from God you move, and the world is moving fast – the wrong way! It is on course!
The kingdom of God is righteousness and peace – not unrighteousness and peace. That is the way of the world’s kingdom. In fact, to qualify for the world’s kingdom you must be unrighteous and full of sin, it is the licence to be a fully fledged participant of the world.
Here is a great piece of legal logic:
The tribulation is a sin judgment, upon those of this evil world that have finally rejected our Lord’s salvation offer and plan.
True Christians were judged for all sin on the cross of Calvary. Christians cannot be judged twice for the same thing. That is called the law of “double jeopardy,” and it is almost universal. Our Lord was found guilty of the sins of the world! He became sin for us.
And we are in Him. We were crucified with Him. (Galatians 2:20)
If you are truly saved, you have been declared not guilty and set free.
You cannot be judged twice. The tribulation is a judgment on all who have rejected the judgment of the cross on our Messiah.
The tribulation is the coming judgement on all who are guilty! As a Christian, you are free, my friend – free forever and ever!
The chameleon and the butterfly:
You had better be a butterfly rather than a chameleon!
One changes colour to blend in with, and identify with the changing surroundings. But nothing within the chameleon has changed. It changes superficially, externally at will.
The butterfly changes totally, from the inside out, not only in appearance, but in form also. It is changed by suffering – the suffering of death. Only then does the beauty emerge from the pupa.
Sin is like a chameleon. (Apologies to chameleons) It alters its appearance and blends in with the changing times. It changes colour according to whatever beast it is riding. Even a white chameleon is still a chameleon! It is Satan who masquerades as an “angel of light.” (2 Corinthians 11:14)
You need to be crushed like a worm before mutating to a beautiful new species – a butterfly. Chameleons don’t like that. They say – “No need to die and No need of the cross” Just come and play happy rainbow coloured games with us in our church.
- Suffering is involved in the production of new life. Ask any woman who has had a baby.
- It was the suffering of the Holocaust that brought Israel out to be a winning nation. Israel will soon see her “pierced” Messiah and understand His suffering, leading them to a new Promised Land!
- It was the suffering of the cross that produced the resurrection and the ascension and all the glory that is to come for believers. (Hebrews 5:8-9)
Can a chameleon become a butterfly? Can a leopard change its spots? The answer is no – not in the natural, but yes, very much so in the world of the supernatural.
Today’s spineless, shallow Christians are in a blurred twilight zone of indifference and compromise, riding the beast to what think is victory! Their lives are propped up with the lie of self-esteem, taught by their worldly host. Truth cannot enter such a person and if it could, it is soon surrendered to the world and its billions of lies.
True peace comes when self is on the cross and pride on the floor. The secret of saintliness is surrender to the living God, His ways and plans for you.
We need to learn how to stand in peace now. Big troubles are coming very, very soon.
The ways of war:
We are on the brink of massive world upheavals and war. It’s on the doorstep! Demons are gearing up for war. There is an order of military rank in the demonic realm, just like in the natural.
We have: The private, the corporal, the sergeant, the lieutenant, the captain, the major, the colonel and the general. This rank is evident in the demonic realm. The Bible outlines it. Most Christians are totally unaware of the enemy.
War consolidates opinions and brings them to the surface, it shows sides and takes sides, and reveals hearts. War gets things moving fast.
The military order of the spirit realm wants Israel to join its circus of the dammed. What Satan is doing now is trying to break the bonds between Jews and Gentile Christians. Satan is doing it with the help of the media and many churches, and YouTube ministries.
The Kushner “Deal of the Century” has not got off to a good start. It already has a whole lot of resistance, before even being fully announced.
►I am now more convinced this entire peace plan will amount to nothing much more than a big zero.
►I am more and more convinced that a peace plan will arrive suddenly on the wings of massive war, as people clamour for peace and a new peace treaty. It will not be this deal.
This “Deal of the Century” may be the vehicle to start WW111, or it may even start up before then.
Bear in mind that the biblical peace treaty (Daniel 9:27) does not bring peace. It brings war on a massive scale, drawing Israel in.
The four riders of the apocalypse ride for all seven years. Yes, the last half is the worst, being the “wrath of God”, but that does not make the first half a time of peace.
Many don’t speak of Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews, some out of ignorance, and some who are out of their depth, some because they are enemies of God in their support of Palestinian claims.
How will Israel be brought into the soon coming war of Gog and Magog? Iran has already decided that. Iran says that if it is attacked by the US, They will “destroy Israel within days”. Well, what’s so surprising about that? Iran has said just that a dozen times before, only to be met with deep, stupid, stunning silence by the mass media and their demon-inspired friends.
How can you have a peace treaty made with the “father of lies,” which violates God’s already existing eternal peace treaty? This peace treaty breaks God’s treaty and is the very cause for His anger, fury and wrath.
Warning: The progression of error:
In these days you had better not believe anything and everything that people spew out.
Note in the familiar verse below that we are to be protective over any crown of reward that may be due to us for our work for Messiah. In other words, take heed you are not deceived or led astray.
Revelation 3:10-11 “Because you have kept My word to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Behold, I come quickly, hold fact what you have, that no one may take your crown.”
Have you ever wondered why it’s the same people who fall into the same traps of false doctrine and grave error? Many have not repented of previous error. Many have no depth of experience with our Lord and don’t know better. Many are just looking for fame.
Beware of those transmuting, transforming into replacement theologians. It is often evident in a few minor things, but then the Jew hatred grows and becomes dominant.
The greatest decision you can ever make as a Christian is to humble yourself and get off your throne of pride. That is the way to grace. The greatest sin for the believer is to continue in pride. This is the generator of all sin, which turns that which is of God to that which is of Satan.
In every heart there is a throne of pride and a cross of humility.
When things really heat up, your focus changes! You care less about entertainment and fun in the sun. You priorities shift fast and you bind together in unity with the like-minded.
I encourage you to keep a note book or some record of the main points of revelation which our Lord brings your way, from this ministry or others. It is important to measure and mark the milestones of your spiritual life.
Job 19:23-24 “Oh that my words were written! Oh, that they were inscribed in a book, that they were engraved on a rock with an iron pen and lead – forever.”
Habakkuk 2:2 “Write the vision, make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it, for the vision is but for an appointed time. At the end it will speak.”
This is one of my paintings representing organic and ethnic elements. I’ve used mixed media, gold leaf and stained glass. It is entitled, “V” for Victory!
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 480: July 30th 2019
Great glory to come!
These are words of life!
Isaiah 43:7 “Everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him and made him.”
Glory: Strong’s (Hebrew) H3519 – “Kabowd”. Meanings: Glory, honour, riches, abundance, splendour, dignity, purity, reverence.
Glory: Strong’s (Greek) G1391 – “Doxa”. Meanings: Judgement, splendour, brightness, magnificence, majesty, excellence, pre-eminence, perfection.
The Judgement seat of Messiah is also be called the glory seat. It is the seat of the handing out of glorious, eternal, incorruptible rewards.
The word “glory” has really been cheapened these days, so it is of great importance to understand it from a biblical point of view. As you see from these definitions, “glory” relates strongly to our future, rewarded, position in Messiah. The outworking of it now in our lives is just as important.
Glory is revealed in us slowly as we mature and move from perfection to deeper perfection.
An atomic explosion “atomo” is coming, which will transform our lowly bodies into a new body just like that of our Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:52). Right now we have, “this treasure in earthen vessels”. (2 Corinthians 4:7)
The spectacular, earth shattering revealing of the great glory of God which He ordained for us before the foundation of the world, comes together with the great forgetfulness of God – of all our sins! (Ephesians 2:10)
You do not just drift into God’s glorious plan for your life. It is a calculated choice, and decision based on the revelation of His plan for you. It comes as a response to Him. Do you think you will be rewarded because you thought of running a race? You must run the race and finish it well.
I once saw a dog running an obstacle race, and get sidetracked because someone put a piece of steak next to a jump. Do you think that dog got a reward? – Not a chance!
To get the complete picture we must also look at the opposite side of the coin.
Obviously, we can just take the words of definition of glory and apply the opposite. But there is more to it. The glory to be revealed involves defeating the enemy and destroying the sins that so easily “beset and befall us”!
The glory to be revealed involves the manifestation of truth in us - His truth, His way, tailor-made for us, as part of our calling! All things must get out of the way that stand in the way of us fulfilling God’s plan for us. That’s the difficult thing in these days!
It’s easy to “put on” all the rubbish of the world, but far more difficult to “put off” the world, once we have “put it on.”
You will need to give an account to God of how diligent you were in removing the obstructions to God’s call on your life? It’s not an inconsequential question! It will affect your eternal future.
We must understand that there are almost always two sides to our obedience to Messiah. One is doing His will and the other is not doing the will of the enemy, and Christians are so good at hiding the works of the devil!
True, biblical Christianity involves drastic change in your life. The longer you delay it, the harder it becomes. Just do it – now!
We must clearly identify the works of darkness. These are: The works of Satan himself, all demons, fallen angels, witchcraft, Jezebels, warlocks, wizards, people of pride, false prophets, and false teachers and preachers. You can add to the list sin, evil, unrighteousness, wickedness, and error.
In fact, as the full glory of God is revealed it necessitates the destruction of the entire universe, and every “corner” into which Satan, and his demons had access. A new universe will be created then.
The coming glory of Israel:
A military attack, or the continuous verbal attacks on Israel from the UN and others is one thing, but the sick, spineless attacks of many ministries on Israel is a stench in the nostrils of our God.
We are seeing more and more of these subtle, anti-Israel attacks coming from the church.
Just listen to a minister with little or nothing to say on Israel, and I tell you that very soon he will be a minister of replacement theology, under the auspices of the spirit of Hitler! Silence in a spiritually charged environment means you need to get out of ministry.
We all know how Israel missed her calling. We all know the consequences. But many even with a teaching ministry, want to keep Israel down, out and under their cursed wings. They think God now has His church, and is finished with Israel.
God has a great, great plan. He is going to glorify Israel! He will bring Israel to her knees, clean her up, save her and use her as an instrument of His own, to bring salvation to the world, after the rapture, in the tribulation period.
The verses below all relate to Israel’s grand, soon-coming glory, to be revealed:
Isaiah 60:1-3 “Arise shine, for your light has come! For the glory of the Lord has risen upon you (Israel) The glory of the Lord will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your brightness, and kings to the brightness of your rising.”
Isaiah 49:3 “You are My servant O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.”
Deuteronomy 30:7 “The Lord God will put all these curses on your enemies and all those that hate you and persecute you. And you (Israel) will again obey the voice of the Lord...”
Zephaniah 3:13 “The remnant of Israel shall do no unrighteousness and speak no lies, nor shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth...”
Isaiah 66:19 “I will set a sign among them (Jews)...they shall declare My glory among the Gentiles.”
By the way, there are hundreds of verses similar to these few above, in the Bible.
These three verses below could only be addressed to God’s other people – the Gentile church:
Isaiah 57:14 “...Prepare the way, take the stumbling block out of the way of My people.”
Romans 1:16 “Salvation is for the Jew first and also the Greek...”
Romans 11:11 “I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not, because through their fall, to provoke them (Jews) to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles.”
So, has God finished with the Israel?
Salvation is of the Jews and salvation will be of the Jewish Messiah in the tribulation period.
►What would be the motivation of the Bible ‘teacher’ who supposedly knows the word, and is silent on Israel, when God says that we are to make the Jew jealous, and take the gospel to the Jew first? It’s obviously to get rid of the Jews.
What follows is most important. Don’t underestimate this:
The attack upon the glory of Israel:
If the prophetic word and plan of God for Israel can be stopped or hindered, Satan would have a legitimate right to prevent his own judgement, because, legally, he will say, “God did not bring His word to pass for Israel.”
This is one of the dangers of replacement theology. It plays right into the hands of the devil.
Today, I warn you afresh! There are many ministries out there who are openly into replacement theology. But there are many just awakening to their inglorious, detestable, reprehensible role. They have no Spirit of God leading them, only spirits of ancient dictators and antichrists.
If you receive from the teaching of some, of these spiritually deceived tricksters, trying to prove themselves right and everyone else wrong, especially relating to Israel, you will come under their spirit, and your eternal reward and glory will go up like a puff of smoke.
►When you try to get rid of the Jews theologically, you are Hitler without the gas ovens – yet! You are Hitler in the pulpit and on YouTube - just firing up. You are the protagonist and champion of the “new” eternal hatred. (Ezekiel 35:5)
Jeremiah 31:1-3 “I will be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be My people...Yes I have loved you with an everlasting love.”
Hatred is in fact supreme love of self in action, which will not share its glory. But when it comes to the replacement or removal of Israel, it is a satanically inspired! Run away from it!
The prayer of glory:
There is great power in prayer, but there is more in the power of the prayer of agreement, where two or more pray and stand together in unity. It is greater still when accompanied with fasting and the gifts of the Spirit.
Effective prayer obviously necessitates insight and discernment, so that we know the strategies of the devil and be effective in combat.
Prayer within disagreement or no spiritual insight produces a big zero and leaves many doors to the enemy wide open.
In my own prayer life, I always like to begin with a time of simple exalting and uplifting our Lord. I declare to Him, His own word. This is not a prayer for things. It is to simply reflect on who our Lord is. When possible, I like to make my prayer demonstrative, by bowing down, lying down on my face, raising arms and hands, and the like.
There is something special about verbalising the glory of the Lord!
Don’t ever lose sight of the importance of the coming glory and the rewards that will be given to those who earned them. Make sure it is a part of your prayer life.
We must always remember that as we come before our Lord it has consequences. If most people could have just a small peek behind the veil of glory into eternity, their lives would forever be drastically and radically changed.
When you see who really are and what you are going to be – forever, it can only slay you!
The crowns of reward are most amazing and awe-inspiring! They are exclusive and not for all believers. All true believers will be saved, but not all will be rewarded.
The Bible has so many wonderful, rich descriptions of the eternal state – some of these are seen in these crowns of reward.
The crowns are: ●The Incorruptible crown, given for conquering the flesh. (1 Corinthians 9:24-27) ●Rejoicing and soul winning. (1Thessalonians 2:19-20) ●The crown of life, given for endurance of trails (James 1:12, Revelation 2:10) ●The crown of glory, given for those who disciple and steward God’s people. (1 Peter 5:2-4) ●The crown of righteousness, given for those who long for His appearing. (2 Timothy 4:8)
The effect of persecution:
In most cases when the church is under attack, it causes people to come together in a new unity. It causes many niggly little differences to evaporate!
Persecution is a form of judgment on the church. It has the effect of revealing the glory within!
Very often when a church is under attack you see real miracles taking place. I’m not talking about all sorts of unverifiable circus-type claims!
Persecution consolidates your beliefs, and reveals in you what you are really made of! It identifies you with the others as well. It also awakens the Lion in the church! (It’s a bit risky getting too near a lion that has just woken up – you don’t know what side of the bed he got out of)!
I don’t believe we will see the intense form of persecution of the tribulation period, but even now, the church is under growing attack. So, I believe that this will be one of the factors causing unity in the church in these days.
It will be limited, as some of the die-hards and those deeply ingrained in their anti-Israel stance harden their hearts even further.
The great wild glory to come:
Personally, I’m a lover of nature and all things wild, although I haven’t been able to hug a tree much these day. But I can already begin to imagine the glory that awaits us out there. Romans 8:19 speaks of the great manifestation and revealing of the glory of the saints.
Perfect, new, holy environment is coming. Renewed animals with a new nature are about to stomp the earth.
Imagine a Spiny Lumpsucker that doesn’t suck your blood, or a grove full of raspberry armadillos?
Our Lord, God and King is the artist of all artists and He doesn’t have a bad day!
One of the passions that led me into the art world many years ago was the ‘allure’ and ‘mystery’ behind artists, in that they created something beautiful out of nothing, a glory still to be revealed!
You can assist in the glory of others, which will be manifest, or you can be to them a hindrance and stumbling block.
Tragically, the horror of hell is also going to be revealed!
Ezekiel 22:30 (Due to Israel’s wicked leader) “So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall and stand in the gap, before Me on behalf of the land; that I should not destroy it; but I found none.”
The Prophetic Scroll will stand with and for Israel and God’s pure and perfect plans for them in their coming troubles. I will stand (increasingly) against those who come against Israel. And as always will stand with and for the true church of the living God.
Glory in the highest, glory in the highest!
I took this picture hanging out of a chopper early one frozen morning, flying over the Dragon’s Back in the Drakenberg Mountains, with cascading, whirlpools, and falls of mist. Interestingly, the circular rainbow around the chopper’s shadow is called the “Pilots Glory!”
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 479: July 23rd 2019
Great end-time conflicts:
These are words of life!
Fortify the wall, get your spiritual weapons lined up and cleaned up ready to be brought into service.
You need to have defensive and offensive weapons on all sides, except your back! It is the Lord Himself that will be “your rear guard.” (Isaiah 52:12)
The greatest error of our time is not to see. It is to be blinded by the light! It is the error of seeing things from the wicked world’s point of view. In the sanctuary of darkness, your conscience will be seared, and you will be a vulture’s prey.
It’s okay to have spiritual hiccups for a short season and lose focus, but be careful out there, get rid of those hiccups quickly. They’re dangerous in these days.
Those who draw from polluted waters will themselves become polluted and then pollute others, and end up with more than a frog in the throat, or spiritual hiccups!
Many are inwardly drawn to error and have a natural propensity to be at home with it is. It’s always the same ones! You can be very sure that they are drawing form a polluted source!
Many of you out there would do well to throw out the polluted waters of your spiritual source.
A broken and clean heart before our Lord and the full acceptance of the work of the Spirit of God is the way to see clearly and with purity.
I recall way back in the 70s being fascinated with a piece of paper that had a silver emulsion on one side. When it was exposed to a controlled light and placed in developer, suddenly an image began to appear. You could manipulate the image intensity in various ways, but you were stuck with it once it had gone into a bath of fixer and then washed.
Back in those days that was the essence of how photography worked. Today we do most of these things digitally.
It is the Light of God that enlightens the image. But He shuts off its making as well.
The point for us all is that once the image of our lives has been reflected onto God’s eternal “paper” and been fixed, it’s a signed, sealed and delivered situation.
This, my friends is like the light of your glory. It will appear and it will last forever. It will not fade! Once your glory has been revealed by God’s light – that’s it, you can’t do it again.
Silver-coated photographic paper works only once!
Colossians 3:4 “When Messiah who is our life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.”
Isaiah 60:20 “Your sun shall no longer go down, nor shall your moon withdraw itself, for the Lord will be your everlasting light and the days of your mourning shall be ended.”
1 Thessalonians 5:5 “You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We are not in the night or darkness, therefore let us not sleep as the others do, but let us keep watch and be sober.”
Don’t waste your time on the rubbish the world has to offer. We don’t know how long we have? Of course there are some whose focus must legitimately be in success in the world, but it is always with the kingdom of God as a priority in their lives.
Personally, I have just had a terrible health “encounter” that I did not think I would come out of. Only a week or two later, after some cracking prayer from friends and my prayer partners, I’m almost back to normal again.
I would like to thank those who selflessly stood in the gap for me.
In fact I can now see the other side of the story. I have endeavoured to turn this around on the devil’s head and come out stronger for our Lord.
So, to me it is now already like a new milestone. I dedicate myself afresh to serving you.
Conflicts are ramping up!
The Straits of Hormuz are becoming the battle-waters of coming great conflict.
It’s not so much about oil-tankers carrying black gold from the deep to the west. It’s not so much about Iran and the US or Islam against Israel. It is about Satan and God!
Satan knows that one little spot – a choke-hold, a strangle-hold sees about 30% of the world’s oil need flow through Hormuz. That can disrupt the world economy in a flash if interfered with.
I’ve said for many years and do so again, this will be the nasty trigger to Gog and Magog and the other wars of prophecy in the region.
The question is not what you or I think on these issues, but whose side are you on in spiritual terms. (Revelation 12:12-13)
Where God goes and is acknowledged, and recognised, upliftment comes along. New vision and understanding comes along. It always works in the larger picture too. In other words, upliftment of society as a whole takes place – all for the betterment of mankind.
The source can even be one small ministry, which then spreads outwards. It is evil spreads in a lack of godliness in the nation.
Think of this: The USA has always been a “nation under God” to some degree. The US has always stood with and for Israel. You could see it in the inventiveness and success through their times.
Pretty soon the Space race began.
“Reach for the stars – reach for the final frontier” they said, and off they went in funny space suits to the final frontiers, the conquest of paradise, even though it amounted to not much more than a paradise ball of cheese in the sky!
►But the godless reject the ways of God and are drawn down! Relating to Israel we have the final frontier now being turned by the world-system to the “final solution again”!
As God’s glorious plan of salvation for the world flies through history, we see the wonderful plan encapsulated in:
Israel is: ●Elected ●Rebelled ●Rejected ●Regathered ●Repented ●Accepted.
On May 14th 1948, the Lion nation, soon to release the Lion of the tribe of Judah, became a nation, which was part of this process above. Israel reached for her lost Star in blind obedience to God’s prompting. The final frontier beside one arrived - their national Promised Land. (Their salvation in Messiah being the last frontier.)
But what happened the very next day? On May 15th 1948, the Palestinians declared it “Nakba” day. Meaning: “The day of catastrophe.”
If you seriously look at these two issues you can see those who have chosen heaven and those who have chosen hell!
It is: “Bless Israel and be blessed” – God. Or “Let’s wipe Israel off the map.” – Iran.
Who do you think will come out on top here? A lot more half the world have become thicker than 26 planks. – And many churches too.
Today, more and more, people have become so junk-filled that they can’t distinguish between what is right, holy and what is of the devil anymore.
Many times when you are an advocate and practitioner of God’s holiness, and His ways, people look at you funny! But don’t be concerned about that. God will look at them through eyes of fire and fury – soon – not very funny!
Rend you hearts! Be clean...you are in conflict even now.
Joel 2:13 “So, rend your hearts and not your garments; return to the Lord your God...”
Job 17:9 “The righteous will hold to his way, and he who has clean hands will be stronger and stronger.”
Psalm 24:4-5 “He who has clean hands and a pure heart and has not lifted his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully, will receive blessing from the Lord.”
2 Samuel 22:21 “The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness and according to the cleanness of my hands.”
Don’t ever get the idea from anyone that all you do even in sincerity is of God and will be rewarded. Those who are carnally minded and have built their lives on the errors of the day will have it all stripped away – forever.
Many people are storing up a pile of rotten, dead works in their lives. It actually goes frighteningly further “Being carnally minded makes you an enemy of God!” (Romans 8:6-8)
For the active believer caught up in glorious truth – great glory awaits. Even nature itself is stirring ahead of the revealing of the saints!
When you are on the right path, you will have an inner witness and peace will be your end.
This is a mix of a cheetah picture, a lion and a baobab tree. I took the the pictures in Botswana some years ago.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 478: July 15th 2019
Great end-time errors:
These are words of life!
►They were almost my last words! I apololgise for this edition going out at first with many problems. I have had a major heart isue, leaving me in and out of consiousness and wiping me out. I am on the road to healing.
In many of these things, we need to define our terms exactly, and clearly indicate what we are saying, because often times, when we explain things, from different stand-points with different application it may changes things. We must always be very clear on the differences of truth and error. They are spirits with their own rights,
We must be open to spiritual reality and be discerning, standing in the gap for others. Only truth endures and carries the full blessing of our Lord.
The pursuit of God:
This is perhaps the most noble pursuits, of all and is fraught with many dangers. Don’t get ahead of God. You will take the wrong road if you do, and don’t think you can do without His spiritual equipping in these dangerous days.
Ignorance of God’s word, enlightened by Him, is a modern-day plague in the church. Even the various translations of the Bible have brought much division and confusion in.
Some Bibles deliberately present an anti-Israel slant, enhancing this confusion.
For example, some say the early King James Versions of the Bibles, before a certain time period, presented a preamble to many texts of the Old Covenant, saying that wherever you read about Israel, the Jews or Jerusalem you just replace this with "the church"This is how so much anti-Semitism infiltraded the church.
It was the so-called "authority" of this King James Version that had brought it in through their inserted headlines.
This simple error was part of the cause for WW11, and is again fermenting ahead of WW111.
Date setters delight.
This little lot obviously comes down to basic logic, understanding of language and the Bible itself.
What is date setting? And what it is not.
As I’ve pointed out many times before a doctrine must be accepted and harmonise with all scripture for it all add up.
There are many verses that become contrardicictory, if we’re not led by the Spirit. They will not make sense.
We are literally “commanded” to know the time of our Lord’s coming in judgement. (1 Thessalonians 5:1)
We are commanded to know the times and the seasons. We must know the times of the Gentiles. We must know where Irsrel, God's prohetic clock is
Those with no spiritual authority are not to be trusted. They are sent, just to trip us up if they can, making a big mess of things, presenting a terribly distorted message.
We all know the failed dates: – Do you see tomorrow’s date (as of writing) here below also?
There are again a gaggle of goose-setters out there who have come up with the July 17th for the rapture!
May 21st 2011, September 23rd 2017 May 14th 2019 and now the new one July 17th 2019 (tomorrow)
Those not to trust
►Don’t trust those who say “The Lord told me", "I had a dream," and "100% for sure.
►People call God into their predictions and say “God told me”, which in fact is simply shifting responsibilty and call God' authority in because they don't have any. But when things don’t come to pass we see that it is the god of error at workand now they dump the blame on him. Satan will reward them for that by deceiving them even more.
Of course the Lord the does give dreams and speaks in many, sometimes quite supernatural ways. But great discernment is needed here,
Be careful of defining or renaming error as biblical truth. For example: The term “witchdoctor” is common throughout Africa and in many cultures. Today that word has been changed to “traditional healer,” although nothing at all changed within the witchdoctor. It simply gives respectability, acceptance, and authority to the devil and continues the enslavement of the masses.
►The failed predictor casts doubt on God and perpetuates his non-repentance.
I fully accept the repentant teacher and the one who stumbled, and through repentance came right.
Prophecy proves and affirms the veracity of God’s word. Failed prophetic utterances affirms the spirit of error and acts as a great distracter. Don’t listen to them.
You need to be well aware of those who constructe dangerous, erroneous teachings that don't harmonise.
Can you know the eaxact date – Most probably not. Can you know the time – Yes.
Can you say: "We will see the date of the Feast or Trumtes 2019 approaching?" Yes! That is the key!
The illogical error of Imminence is – wrong!
I will deal with these things some more next week.
In looking to identify error, the first thing you must do is check the inner witness in your heart. Then check the track-record of the presenter, and his his claims.. Then look for tell-tales signs of manipulation, and self-seeking or promotion.
If a prophecy is of the Lord, it will come to pass. If it does not come to pass that person is a liar, deceiver and of the spirit of error and must be avoided . The character of the devil is lying in pride.
Don’t open your heart to everyone! Don't receive from anyone.
Proverbs 27:12 “A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself...”
Proverbs 25:12 “Like an earring of gold and an ornament of fine gold, is a wise reprover to an obedient ear.”
The ancient keys to much blessing:
Matthew 16:19 “I will give the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
Revelation 1:18 “I am He who lives and was dead and behold I am alive forevermore, amen. I have the keys of Hades and of death.”
Jeremiah 6:16-19 “Ask for the old paths, where the good way is and walk in it, then you will find rest (blessing) for your souls. But they said, ‘we will not walk in it.’ Also, I set watchmen over you, saying, ‘listen to the sound of the trumpet.’ But they said, ‘we will not listen...Hear O earth, certainly, I will bring calamity on the people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not heeded My words.”
Return to the ancient ways. (Lend Me your ears and "I Ifill them with glory)
Fancy new doctrines are the fashion of the day - beware of them and the maner in which they are presented to today's lazy, sleeping church.
Most fancy new doctrines are – shot in the head, before they are even born. They carry the spirit of death upon them. But they are appealing to the spirit of pride in self-made man pride and arrogance right from the outset!
Bear in mind that there are a number of types of pride out there that appeal to the spiritually juvenile! The pride of life and self-importance, the pride of appearance.
Basically, God blesses His truth and not error. God never blesses pride!
