Assimilation is the opposite of separation. Islam wants world assimilation into Sharia law. Socialism wants assimilation into a borderless world and economic control. The devil wants assimilation into his evil system. The Bible forbids Jews from assimilating into the nations when they were scattered. (Ezekiel 11:16) The Bible demands that Christians don’t assimilate into the world and remain separate. (2 Corinthians 6:17)
Zechariah 10:9 “I will sow them (Israel) among the peoples, and they shall remember Me in the far countries. They shall live together with their children, and they shall return.”
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:
The Bible reveals a controversy in the heart of the born-again believer. We are dead to self and sin, yet we keep arising, like dead men, to sin. (Romans 7:19) The work of the flesh wants to keep resurrecting sin in our lives, but when we see and understand the depth and power of the cross, self and sin stay dead.
You can’t beat sin’s power! That is a great revelation. You can only die to it.
Trying not to sin is the way of useless religion. It is the way of defeat and makes people subservient to the power of self / flesh.
Sin is a law, which always wins, just like gravity. You will be defeated and demoralised by trying to overcome it! It can only be overcome by a superior law – the law of life.
Romans 6:7 “He who has died has been freed from sin.”
Yes it’s all done for us in the spirit. But in the soul is the sneaky, sin-loving swine that needs to be defeated as we go forward.
The great exchange of our life for His life through the cross is only found in the New Covenant epistles. When it is at work, God’s way, it yields peace and many other glorious, good fruits.
A good measure of your progress in the Lord is seen in how often you say “thank you”, “please” and how often you yield, apologise and forgive others. It is also seen in how immovable you are on basic Bible truth. It is also seen in who your friends are and are not.
Getting slapped in the face is good for your progress. Actually, the slap is God’s doing, but turning the other cheek after being slapped, is our business. Turning the other cheek is our great opportunity for progress and service. It yields results.
The works of the law are about doing and not doing things. The law of life is all about being!
Many believers remain defeated at the foot of the cross. They believe in and apply the blood, which forgives sin, but they do not apply the cross, or their own daily cross, which strikes at the very root of sin. So they end up forgiven and burnt out from always trying to be holy.
The tragedy of superficiality today, is that many have tasted, received and applied some truth, but have not progressed far enough. Be careful out there, because not going far enough with our Lord is the first giant step to going backwards!
I love the Latin term, “Quo Vadis,” which means: “Where are you off to?” This was what our Lord said to Peter, who had basically given up following Him.
John 6:67 “Then Yeshua said to the twelve, do you also want to go away? Then Simon Peter said, ‘Lord to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.’”
We all need to progress beyond this devastating situation and the sooner the better! We have nowhere else to go, but to the devil and his world of perpetual, worsening evil. No way, no way! We must reach out always to our Lord, looking back with great thankfulness for His saving grace, and forward to the glory that lies before us.
►To the unsaved: Your time to reach out to our Lord for salvation is running out fast. What terrible regret there will be for those who miss their true golden opportunity! If God would allow you to come back and be saved after death, that would make the cross a mockery! Now is the time!
►To the backslider: Be careful...you are on very thin ice. Yes, the Lord loves the backslider, but He loves them to return. There are many big, hidden dangers for the backslider, especially in these days.
2 Peter 2:21 “It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn away from it.”
For the pilgrim’s progress, many times our will must be crushed because we are not weak enough in and of our own strength. “O wretched man that I am” (Romans 7:24) and “I must decrease” (John 3:30) are powerful biblical proclamations! Out of that comes: “I am more than a conqueror in Him.” (Romans 8:37)
The essence of the Christian life is not a changed life, but an exchanged life.
Our end is God’s beginning, for us, and for His kingdom, and for the eternal universe!
When you effectively die to self, you are free to progress fast, motivated by the approval of God alone and not man.
Psalm 62:5 (Amp) “My soul, wait only upon God and silently submit to Him; for my hope and expectation is from Him.”
When you get your doctrine right, with a right heart, and the leading of the Spirit, it will fast-track and streamline your progress to perfection and victory, which will even be evident in your own thought life, which leads to your words and actions.
There is great importance in being tested. Every academic student gets tested. God tests the faith of His own. The end result of the test is pass or fail.
God sent Israel into the wilderness to “test them to humble them, to see what was in their heart, to do them good in the end. But they tested God in the wilderness, so He gave them their desires but sent leanness into their soul!” (Deuteronomy 8:2, 16, Psalm 106: 14-15)
2+2 = anything you want it to, if there is no truth. If there is, it is dogmatically: 2+2=4!
We must be especially on guard now in these times against the spirit of error within the church. It is becoming a fast moving plague in many churches. Just as the Bible predicts, there is also a great many progressing well and flying high with the Lord.
If you follow false teachers for any amount of time you will become a false Christian and you will soon become incapable of knowing the truth. Evil spirits of error will distort you.
It is most important who you receive from and who’s teaching you must reject. The spirit of error is very powerful, don’t underestimate it. Even its “truth” is pride-filled error.
Be careful of those who repeatedly come up with “private interpretations” which is condemned, or those who always go for fringe doctrines. (2 Peter 1:20)
Beloved brethren, you have arrived already and are arriving daily as you progress to soon coming glory!
Edition 441: October 29th 2018
How long, O Lord?
The big question every believer wants to know is how much longer until the coming of the Lord? So many prophetic things are all lined up and ready to go. It’s like all the actors are in the wings, the lights are dimming but the curtain is still down.
Prophetic events are like a fuse burning, a ticking time bomb; a clock with one minute to go! It’s like an elastic band stretched out and wound up. It’s like the ultimate war-lord with a hand hovering over the big red button.
So here we sit waiting patiently and some like me, not so patiently. Will someone please hit that big red button already! But do not become discouraged. Our Lord’s will, must not offend.
Acts 17:31 “He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness, by the Man whom He has ordained.”
Zechariah 14:7-8 “It shall be one day which is known to the Lord...and in that day living waters shall flow from Jerusalem...And the Lord shall be King over all the earth.”
Hebrews 10:25 “...As you see the Day approaching.”
1 Thessalonians 5:4-5 “You brethren are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. Therefore let us not sleep as others do, but let us watch and be sober.”
As we look at the verses above, we see that our Lord knows the exact day, and that we are to be in the light in this regard. That does not means we will know the exact day, but to fulfil these verses, it will have to be very close to the exact time.
(The verse that speaks of the Lord not knowing the day, applied to the time-period when He was here on this Satan-infested earth.)
I think there is very little time left. Personally, I doubt we can go any further than the Feast of Trumpets next year. That is already stretching things! It is more likely that we will see things develop very rapidly now, and perhaps within months.
As you see, I’m avoiding actual date setting, down to a day, but not the wider time period.
Habakkuk 1:2 “O Lord, how long shall I cry, and You will not hear? Even cry, ‘Violence!’ and you will not save.” The Lords reply: “Look among the nations and watch – be utterly astounded! I will work a work in your days which you would not believe, though it were told you. For indeed, I am raising up the Chaldeans (Babylonians)...”
The verse above has a prophetic dimension to it, with Babylon being a type of the modern world. It must become fully “ripe.” That’s happening right now!
►James 5:7-8 “Be patient brethren, until the coming of the Lord...Be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.”
I really don’t like the first part of this verse above. I don’t want to be patient! But I suppose that’s just tough, so I have to grin and bear it! But the second part of the verse, I really do love. So, let’s just get on with the job, but always with a keen, impatient eye on prophetic developments.
You know that lousy feeling when you run out of time to complete something, wishing you had started sooner? That feeling should motivate us now to establish our hearts and be ready.
Isaiah 49:23 “...They shall not be ashamed who wait for Me.”
Establish (sanctify) your hearts...urgently:
So, we are told to “establish our hearts” while we wait for the Lord.
If you are saved your heart is already established. But “heart” sometimes refers to our soul, or self-life which is where we must do the work of sanctification. This word means “to make as a saint.”
●Holy: Strong’s H6944. “Qudesh.” Meanings: Apart, separate, pure, sacred.
●Saint: Strong’s G40. “Hagios.” Meanings: Holy, set apart, pure.
Sanctify, is the same root word as saint, which is the same root word as holy.
Leviticus 20:7 “Sanctify yourselves and be holy, for I am the Lord your God.”
Now, let’s look briefly at one of those wonderful, strange ways of God’s working:
Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you. Before you were born I sanctified you.”
Apart from destroying the abortionist view that life only begins at birth, this verse above, is mysterious! Before we were born, we were sanctified – made holy! How can anything be done for us before we were born?
It’s all related to one little word – foreknowledge. God knew us before the foundation of the earth, never mind before being born! (Ephesians 1:4) He knows what choices you will make in the future, even now. We can’t comprehend that.
So, now we have to establish our hearts renew our minds and sanctify ourselves. But how much easier when we know that God knows that we will do it and walk in ways He has already prepared.
Acts 20:32 “I commend you to God and to His word of grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.”
When you have spent half your life or more studying all about our Lord, led by His Spirit, praying and growing, you can do nothing but love Him more. The more you draw near to Him, the greater you fear Him as well. But this is a safe fear. It neutralises all other fears and gives birth to many wonderful things.
The unsaved don’t sanctify themselves. Manu believers too are in love with the world and do nothing to prepare themselves for eternity.
Psalm 52:3-4 “You love evil more than good, and lying rather than speaking righteousness. You love all devouring words, you deceitful tongue.”
Jeremiah 14:10 “Thus says the Lord to the people: They have loved to wander, they have not restrained their feet. Therefore the Lord does not accept them. He will remember their iniquities now, and punish their sins.”
2 Timothy 3:4 (Amp) “They will be treacherous, betrayers, rash and inflated with self-conceit. They will be lovers of sensual pleasures and vain amusements more than lovers of God.”
●The course of this temporary world is down. (Ephesians 2:2) It is getting worse, with no restraint. Life’s journey in the world is towards increasing darkness, because that is the nature of the god of the world.
●The course of this eternal kingdom is up. (Daniel 2:44) It’s a journey in the light, towards the light. It is a journey of increasing holiness, consciousness and resentment of sin, with growing multi-dimensional peace.
The world can’t do it, because the key to the end of sin does not come by trying to be good, but by death. Death to sin occurs on the cross only! Only the cross creates true holiness.
In this shocking verse below (and there are many other similar verses), we see the end result of not giving attention to sanctification:
Revelation 3:4 “You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments, and they shall walk with Me in white for they are worthy.”
The previous verses call for watchfulness and repentance! Note well that only a few were worthy!
The mind of modern man thinks he is invincible and needs no guidance and especially, no judge. That’s just why the world is in a mess and deteriorating.
Most people are seeking a better life in the world. They are seeking some reward at the end of the rainbow. But outside of God, when they find the end, they find they’re in hell.
Do you dream of being wonderfully, truly wealthy with God, forever in eternity? Is your treasure laid up in heaven?
Modern man has reduced himself to the level of a robot, cold and dead, but blindly alive to the devil. In his deep darkness he can’t even see that the family of man are charging down the wrong road.
With the world of digital automation has come the loss of dirty, muddy kids, which are healthy kids. ‘Automated’ modern kids are destitute of character, forever spoilt.
The unsaved can’t see their own dark kingdom, because their “lamp” emits darkness!
Luke 11:34-35 “The lamp of the body is the eye. When your eye is good, your whole body is full of light, but when your eye is bad, your whole body is full of darkness. Take heed that the light that is in you is not really darkness.”
Only in His light do we see the kingdom of God and also the kingdom of darkness. If you only see one, your light is faulty. Light shows up the devil, evil and sin. Light shows us holiness.
Proverbs 20:27 “The spirit of man is the lamp of the Lord, searching all the inner depths of his heart.”
The one who judges himself and examinses himself in line with the word is full of God’s light! (2 Corinthians 13:5, 1 Corinthians 11:31,)
We need the spirit of wisdom and revelation now like never before. We need to put on the whole armour of God now! It’s easy to become discouraged when having to wait, but wait and stay strong.
The time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine. (2Timothy 4:3) Deceiving imposters will grow worse and worse, deceiving many. (2Timothy 3:13-14) Error will overthrow the faith of some! (2Timothy 2:15-18) That means that false doctrine lets the enemy in. (Acts 20:27)
Standing with Israel:
Israel is God’s time clock. We must hear its heartbeat!
If you have a valuable treasure chest and you’ve lost the key, and then suddenly you find the key, you will love it, and value it. The Jews are that key! They are the key to open the treasure of salvation to themselves and all others who would be saved in the tribulation.
Our job as Christians is to recognise them as a highly valuable key, but more than that – to love them. Your love for the Jews is also a key to the treasure chest of eternal reward for you!
We see that the church of Philadelphia in Revelation 3:7 has this key. Here it is called the “key of David,” and is directly associated with those who help (father) Jerusalem. (Isaiah 22:21-22)
God’s purpose is to graft the Jews back into their olive tree again. (Romans 11:24-25)
Because of Israel’s fall they were cut off from their own olive tree and grace went to the Gentiles in a new dispensation.
God brings Israel out of the world to bring them into their land and then His kingdom. That’s just the same for us. We are brought out of the world, by new-birth, into a cross-cleansed kingdom within us, and then to heaven at the rapture.
The world and the worldly church will meet their god with his feet on the cursed dust of the ground. We, the true church, will meet our Lord in the air, putting superman to total shame.
Numbers 23:9 (Amp) “From the top of the hills, I see Israel, the people, dwelling alone. They shall not be reckoned among the nations.”
Do you see this incredible verse above? That’s why Israel is hated by the world! It can’t and won’t assimilate into the world because God has a separate, holy plan for them.
If you can’t see yourself as a Christian in this verse above too, you better go back to the drawing board! We are not reckoned with the nations!
►We are about to see the Trump / Kushner “deal of the century” to bring peace to Israel by forcing some sort of assimilation on them. It will lead to the soon coming deal with the antichrist!
The real reason behind anti-Semitism and its evil twin, replacement theology, is because Israel can’t fit in with the nations and the world-church. The god of the world, doesn’t like that, but God’s plans will win through.
Psalm33:4 “The word of the Lord is right and all His work is done in truth.”
Jeremiah 31:13 “...I will turn their mourning into joy.”
Standing against Israel:
If you are a church of replacement theology, you must go through the tribulation. If the church has replaced Israel and Israel is the key to the salvation of the Gentiles in the tribulation – that’s you!
Apart from being blind and ignorant of the scriptures, you will be under a curse as you stand against Israel. That curse will deepen your blindness and compound your problems.
These issues are major spiritually charged end-time issues and dramas. Be warned.
Powerful occult forces, curses and doctrines of demons will intensify greatly in the coming days around this subject – Israel.
►Israel is the ultimate prodigal son! God has not forsaken Israel. Israel will be in trouble with God “until!” (Romans 11:25)
Micah 7:9-10 “I (Israel) will bear the indignation of the Lord because I have sinned against Him, until He pleads my case and executes justice for me. He will bring me forth to the light, and I will see His righteousness. Then my enemy will see and be covered with shame...”
God has always treated Israel’s rebellion severely. That’s because He has put His name, His glory and His honour in them (Including Jerusalem.) But God knows that they will soon repent and be restored. The world does not know that and can’t see it.
Outside of God, man can’t know any of these things. He can’t know God, His nature or character, or His judgements, or His righteousness, or holiness.
The wonders of Bible prophecy:
Prophecy is the missing element from all world religions. But one third of the Bible deals with prophecy in some way. That means that the churches that won’t touch Bible prophecy are of the world’s spirit. You can see it many other areas too.
Bible prophecy deals with the coming of the Lord, judgement, heaven, hell and much more!
Bible prophecy distinguishes the true Messiah from the antichrist.
One of the main objections Jews have to Yeshua being the Messiah is that He did not bring peace to the world as prophecy requires. Have a look at the following verse:
Matthew 4:8 “The devil took Yeshua up an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, ‘All these things I will give to you, if you will fall down and worship me.’ Then Yeshua said to him, ‘Away with you Satan, for it is written, you shall worship the Lord your God only and Him only will you serve.’”
Satan has executive authority (Strong’s G1849 “Exousia) over the kingdoms of the world. (Ephesians 2:1-3, 6:12) But, God’s kingdom is now in Spirit and in our hearts. So, peace is here now. Only at the Second Coming, when the world-system is destroyed, will full world-peace come.
Another often mentioned objections to Yeshua being the Messiah is that If He is, why have Christians persecuted millions of Jews for so long?
That is a deep tragedy. The answer is two-fold. It is that much of the persecution occurred at the hands of counterfeit Christians. The Catholics of the dark ages were far from being Christians! The second response is that cursed replacement theology has infiltrated much of the church in these days. Replacement theology leads to replacement reality!
According to prophecy, the antichrist will promise to bring in world peace in unity and love.
The antichrist will say that he is here to bring love, peace, harmony and unity to the world. Yeshua will bring war, wrath, and destruction to the world. He will then create a new born-again world, an Eden on earth, a paradise of glory and deep eternal peace.
If you go through life without the knowledge of Bible prophecy, you have no concept of what sin is or righteousness and judgement. You are adrift in a storm without a rudder.
Genesis 28:16 “Then Jacob arose from his sleep and said: ‘Surely the Lord is in this place and I did not know it.’”
The verse above speaks of Jacob who became Israel, but it applies excellently to all who awake to spiritual sight. Suddenly, they see the “Lord in this place!”
●Do not delay your repentance. Do not delay your pursuit of God through His word. The Lord is already “in this place!”
The current situation:
The biggest return of Jews to Israel will be from the USA. The murderous shooting of Jews at Pittsburgh recently may well lead to the start of the great prophecy in which our Lord “roars and brings His sons home from the west.” (Hosea 11:10)
Right now Russia, Iran, Syria, Gaza, Golan, Lebanon / Hezbollah and the Palestinians are all waiting in the wings. They are all aligned ready and waiting. I’m not really interested in all the minor news events relating to these issues. It’s the big picture that is of vital importance.
We are seeing a worldwide, consistent development amongst liberal, lefties. They are all quickly consolidating into beasts. They are all raging with the same voice. They and their leaders are all raging in unison against the virtues and values of our Lord.
Psalm 33:16 “No king (world leader) is saved by the multitude of an army, or a mighty man delivered by great strength. (in numbers)
We will see the preparations for the soon-coming antichrist summit. We will see the beginning of the major wars of prophecy, starting up.
The entire Middle East is ticking and tocking! The picture is becoming amazingly clear.
So, in our wait for our Lord of glory, we sanctify ourselves urgently. We line up with God’s word on Israel, we watch for the main prophetic events.
How long, O lord? Soon and very soon!
People who are truly godly cause others to see a glimpse of God and to turn to and reflect on God. It often causes the unsaved to stop and think, even if they don’t respond now.
The unsaved have to try to be self-important and self-sufficient in their pride. Their pride is linked to the world-system which is the great manifestation of pride – all doomed
►Pride is trying to be someone you’re not. We, as true Christians are becoming someone we are!
This is composite of a few of my pictures: Sunset, olive tree, kokerboom, elephant.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 440: October 23rd 2018
Eternal worlds to come:
It’s a terrible, fast-deteriorating world descending like lightning into the pits!
The world is doomed to hell. The world is destined for glory.
Well, which is it? Glad you asked!
The world is moving faster and further away from all that is truly godly. We are in what the Bible calls “perilous times,” These end days are succinctly described in the Bible as the rapid deterioration of godly character, with the love of sin self and the world coming in like a flood.
“He has set eternity in our hearts.” People, worldwide at least sense coming eternity.
Everything God does has eternal consequences, especially relating to judgement upon sin.
The Christian can’t fit in with this world because he is holy, and because the world’s heart is not. We are essentially two people. Born of man and born of God. We are becoming more like what we have already become in heart. Tragically many Christians are becoming more like the world of man!
Are you treasuring up for yourself wrath, or are you treasuring up for yourself gold, silver and precious stones – forever? Are you drawn to the world or to overcoming the world?
There are a number of occasions in the Bible where God has supernaturally destroyed entire cities, as well as the entire world of that day.
It’s instructive to look at the reasons and see what we can learn for our day.
Bear in mind that all of these supernatural events occurred in Old Covenant times. God does not operate that way today in the church age, but will again very soon in the tribulation period, which technically, is the closing of the Old Covenant.
●The world in Noah’s day:
The world was destroyed by the supernatural act of God in a flood in the days of Noah. The reasons were many, including: Increasing wickedness, violence and perversions, occult and demonic activity.
2 Peter 2:5 “God did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly.”
There was a terrible spirit of complacency amongst the people then as well. They presumed that everything would continue as it had always done.
Matthew 24:37-39 “As in the days of Noah, so shall it be at the coming of the Son of Man, for they were eating, drinking, marrying, and giving in marriage until the day Noah entered the ark, and they did not know until the flood took them all away, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.”
The overall purpose of the flood was to cleanse the earth of all evil and restore it to righteousness.
●Sodom & Gomorrah were destroyed by instant supernatural fire because of the sin of homosexuality and excessive sexual perversions as well as with angelic beings manifesting as humans. Genesis 19:1-29,
Jude 1:7 “As Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality, and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”
2 Peter 2:6 “God turned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterwards would live ungodly.”
●Babylonwas destroyed for widespread sin, 2500 years ago, and the pride of the people (Chaldeans pride.) The city was never to rise again. (Isaiah 13:20-22, Jeremiah 51:64) But we see “Babylon the Great,” rising to be destroyed at the Second Coming. Here, Babylon is clearly a type of the end-time world-system and its orthodox religions.
The chief reason for its destruction was the pride of its elevated materialism and its commercial success. (This was the same reason for the fall of Lucifer.)
Babel, the same original word for Babylon, was a humanistic attempt to reach God by human works (building a tower of man-made bricks.) Babylon comes from the name Bab-ilim, meanings “gateway to God”. In Hebrew it means “confusion.”
Note in the verse below, Babylon is a clear type of the world system.
Isaiah 13:11 (Verse 1) “The burden against Babylon, which Isaiah saw.” “I will punish the world for its evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; I will halt the arrogance of the proud, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.”
Babylon and its tower represent the supernatural final destruction of God upon the whole world and their humanistic religions in the tribulation. (Revelation 17 &18)
Babel was made of man-made bricks – the dust of the earth. The curse upon Lucifer / Satan was that he would eat the dust of the earth as a serpent.
Genesis 3:14-19 “...You shall eat the dust all the days of your life...For dust you are (man) and to dust you shall return.”
Again we see the association of Babylon with the world in the word, ‘dust.’
●Egypt: It was destroyed because they refused to “Let My people go.” (The Jews) And when they finally did, they pursued them, wanting to bring them back to Egypt.
Egypt is a type of the world, and here the story speaks of the world coming against God’s plan for Israel by preventing the modern Jewish homeland from full Jewish ownership and possession, and pursuing the Jews militarily, and by the acts of the Palestinians and their evil sponsor the UN.
Exodus 3:7 “The Lord said, ‘I have surely seen the oppression of My people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows.’”
Exodus 7:4 “Pharaoh will not heed you (and let My people go), so I will lay My hand on Egypt and bring My armies and My people, the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments.”
●Jericho was destroyed supernaturally by God, (Joshua 6) because they stood in the way of, and obstructed the children of Israel on their way into the Promised Land. The city was also full of evil and the occult as well.
The walls of Jericho were a testimony to its proud fortified strength and protection of the evil within. God had told the children of Israel to destroy these evil nations that stood in their way.
Joshua 6:17-18 “Now the city shall be doomed by the Lord to destruction, it and all who are in it. Only Rahab the harlot shall live, she and all who are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers who were sent.”
●The world today:
Micah 5:15 “I will execute vengeance in anger and fury on the nations that have not heard (of God’s promises to Israel).”
Jeremiah 48:8 “The plunderer shall come against every city; no one shall escape...”
Isaiah 26:5 “He brings down those who dwell on high. The lofty city He lays low, to the ground, to the dust.”
The entire chapter of Isaiah 24 deals with the horrific destruction by God of the entire end-time world. It pulls no punches!
The list of horror:
So, let’s list the main causes and reasons for these huge supernatural judgements of God. You tell me if they bear any semblance to us today!
●Escalating wickedness, ●iniquity, sin, ●violence, ●homosexuality and perversions. ●Occult and demonic activity. ●Complacency, pride, and self-exaltation above the ways of God. ●Unholiness and unrighteousness.
●Standing against Israel. ●Obstructing the Jews. ●Coming against Jerusalem and supporting Israel’s enemies.
Note that the reasons for God’s supernatural judgement upon cities and the world fall into three main categories: (1) Sin. (2) Satanic. (3) Israel.
Does all of this above, paint a picture of today? You bet it does – exactly! These issues all brought supernatural judgement. Do you think that anything has changed? Note well that some of the verses I’ve used, above, declare that this is all an example for us today.
Has the world learnt anything from these horror judgements of God? Not a thing! The only thing you can do is change in yourself and be right with God.
It’s all due to go bang big time! Then, like the dove returning to the ark with an olive branch of peace, the true new godly world-order will be here in all its majestic glory – forever.
The world today has had judgement, signed, sealed, and passed on it for all the above reasons collectively. But the judgement is now stayed, even from a legal viewpoint, because the world still has time to repent and change its ways. We know prophetically, that this won’t happen, but God does things decently, in line with truth and in order.
Spirits over cities
Many cities of the world have distinct spirits over them. As we have seen in the examples above, it was an entire city that had the problem.
Today, cities like San Francisco, Cape Town and others have a new-age, homosexual spirit over them. Of course not every person is subject to those spirits, but there are distinguishable consistencies.
Many towns, cities and provinces in Africa and Asia have witchcraft spirits over them. Many others have a spirit of poverty over them. Many cities in Europe have a liberal godless spirit over them.
It’s actually the same for individuals. It’s called a transfer of spirits. Most of these cities need heavy deliverance, change, and large-scale spiritual warfare to set them free.
In most of these cities where these spirits cover the whole place, you see very little true spiritual activity and growth. Sometimes you see missionaries, in spiritual authority, breaking those spirits. That is when you do see spiritual growth as a result.
Proverbs 29:2 “When the righteous are in authority the people rejoice; but when a wicked man rules, the people groan.”
Proverbs 28:28 “When the wicked arise, men hide themselves, but when they perish, the righteous increase.”
Today this situation is becoming much more apparent than before.
The price has been paid:
Yeshua died and paid the price for your sins. But it goes further. He died for the “sin of the world.” (John 1:29) What is the “sin of the world?” It is every aspect of the root of all sin, evil and unrighteousness. It includes the curse on nature and all mankind originating with Adam.
But, as an individual, you still need to receive the payment for your sins, before it becomes effective. Likewise, the world needs to receive the payment to become a world of nations under God.
Isaiah 35:8-10 “A highway shall be there, it shall be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean shall not pass over it...The ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with singing, with everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.”
Jeremiah 31:4 (ESV) “I will build you up and you shall be built, O virgin Israel! Again you shall adorn yourself with tambourines and you shall go out in the dance of the merrymakers.”
Psalm 96:9-13 “Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before Him all the earth. Let the heavens rejoice and the earth be glad, let the sea roar; let the fields be joyful, then all the trees of the woods will rejoice before the Lord, for He is coming to judge the earth in righteousness and with His truth.”
The word “eternity” (Strong’s H 5703) has both the dimensions of time and space associated with it: It means, everlasting, eternal, evermore, continuous existence. The concept does continue beyond the realms of time and space.
2 Thessalonians 1:8-9 “In flaming fire, our Lord will take vengeance on those who do not know God and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord. These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power.”
Psalm 52:5 “God shall likewise destroy you forever.”
Psalm 92:7 “When the wicked spring up like the grass, and when all workers of iniquity flourish, it is that they may be destroyed forever.”
You and God own your life in a joint partnership of eternal glory.
When you walk along a dark path on a moonless night with a lamp in your hand, the light spreads all around you. But as you move on, the darkness reclaims the area you have just left. Darkness retreats in light but then advances in the absence of light.
We are the “light of the world.” (Matthew 5:14) The light will go out in a blinding flash at the rapture. Then the new light upon the Jews will shine upon the Gentiles and into this dark, dark world. (Isaiah 60:3)
The world’s honeymoon with the devil is just about over. Deep, deadly, eternal darkness is just on the horizon. Now, the world’s destruction and eternal marriage in hell lies just ahead.
John 3:19 “This is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather that light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.”
The winds of the world are hurricanes of evil, blowing to hell. We must have the wind in our face.
Pray for revelation of heaven and hell and of judgement to come. Pray for the fear of the Lord – the ultimate protection against all other fears!
As a believer, hold on tight to all that is secure. Don’t turn away with the world. It’s time to be strong and endure. It’s time let God work deeply in every atom of your being.
Galatians 4:9 “Now, after you have known God, or rather, are known by God, how is it that turn again to the weak and beggarly elements to which you desire again to be in bondage?”
Do not fear correction, or discipline at the hand of God.
►Discipline gives you value and importance. If you are not disciplined you feel that you are not worthy to be corrected. It devalues you. This is why the Bible says that parents, who won’t discipline their children physically, hate them.
True love warns of hell. True hatred never speaks or teaches on it.
Understanding of hell is vital to one's spiritual health and stability. Reward and punishment are both major doctrines of God.
Today’s world is sin-mad and rejects the law of God, judgement, and hell to come. The world thinks that their perception is truth! They have nasty surprise coming.
Grace leads to repentance, but hell must be integrated to show up grace.
Jeremiah 15:17 “I did not sit in the assembly of the mockers, nor did I rejoice; I sat alone because of your hand, for you have filled me with indignation.”
John 12:31 “Now is the judgement of this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out.”
Luke 12:49 “I came to send fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled.”
Galatians 1:4 “He gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age.”
Eternal destruction is a result of the eternal judgement of God. (Hebrews 6:2) There is no mercy once His grace has run its course!
The judgement to come upon you and me as individuals will be eternal. The judgement upon the world and its nations and cities will be eternal. The world is soon to be judged in the seven-year tribulation and at the Second Coming. It will never rise again.
The “smoke” of its judgement will rise forever.
Proverbs 11:11 “By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted, but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked. “(Media!)
Malachi 3:18 “You shall again discern between the righteous and the wicked, between the one who serves God and the one who does not.”
When truth has been perverted, diluted, changed, and ignored for so long and so deeply, when it does appear, it will be seen as a huge, shocking and preposterous lie.
Eternal safety and glory:
Safety is stepping out every day in righteousness and holiness. Safety is on the far side of the cross. Being safe and secure is psychologically good. Safety creates assurance, confidence, stability, endurance, rest and peace.
The knowledge of Bible prophecy is like knowing the road map to a foreign destination. You can’t be safe without it. One third of the Bible deals with prophecy. Within that the breakdown is five in one, for prophecy of all end-time events compared to the first coming of our Lord.
Isaiah 57:15 “Thus says the high and lofty One who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place with him who has a contrite and humble spirit.”
Deuteronomy 33:27-28 “The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms; He will thrust out the enemy from before you, and will say, ‘Destroy!’ Then Israel shall dwell safely...The heavens also shall drop dew.”
Everything in creation is spinning, singing and dancing. In eternity, man is going to be conductor of this spectacular symphony. But man today, is singing his own tune to his own beat, out of harmony and sync. It’s a symphony of discord, of fools professing themselves to be wise!
Exodus 15:18 “The Lord shall reign forever and ever.”
Some strange and wonderful thing unites and ‘ignites’ people who have prophecy alive and shining in their hearts, like a star. (2 Peter 1:19)
Those that love Bible prophecy, see something terrifying in the hearts of those who don’t love it. All Christians should be involved in some way with ministries that have a prophetic aspect to them.
Those who reject or downplay Bible prophecy are blindfolded, walking a fraying tightrope, with thin ice beneath them!
I took the background picture in the Namib Desert and the King Protea in my garden.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 439: October 16th 2018
Esther the magnificent:
This Bible story is so full of rich, powerful symbolism and typology for our day, and the church, as well as the false church – and the false Messiah, and also for Israel.
If you think you know the story – I bet you don’t...read on my friends and be amazed!
The story in a nutshell:
Main points: The king had a banquet and wanted to display queen Vashti to his guests. But she was having her own banquet at another location, so refused the summons of the king. Vashti was then rejected as queen and banished, never again to come into the king’s presence. Messengers were then sent into all the land to find another queen for the king. They found Esther, an orphan raised by her Jewish uncle Mordechai .
She was given the herb, myrrh to be prepared for the king. She was brought before the king who showed favour to her. She became the new queen and shared the king’s throne. At this stage the king did not know that Esther was a Jew.
The king appointed the Hitler-like Haman, to be prime minister over Persia. Haman ordered all of Persia to bow down to him.
Mordechai refuses to bow down to Haman, enraging him. He then hatched a plot to kill Mordechai and all the Jews of the Province. Esther helped Mordechai uncover a plot. Haman then constructed a large gallows to hang Mordechai on, but ended up being hung on his own gallows after Esther told the king of the plot. Then Mordechai became the king’s new counsellor.
The Jews, then with the king’s authority, massacred all of Haman’s agents (about 75,000).
The story ends with the celebration of Purim, also called the “Fast of Esther,” at which the “Scroll of Esther” is read. Even today it is a public holiday and includes a dawn to dusk fast. It is symbolic of the destruction of the enemies of the Jews, and a celebration of coming liberty and joy.
Aspects of the characters:
The name Vashti means: “Outward beauty”.
Vashti was a beautiful woman, but her beauty was all superficial and exterior.
Vashti hated the Jews. She brought Jewish women before her and forced them to break the Sabbath to show that she was superior, in her pride.
She hated the Jewish women even more when she could not make them unholy, showing that she could not conquer them.
Vashti is a type of Eve rebelling against God. She is a powerful type of all Jezebels. She is well accepted as a type of the false, counterfeit church and the churches of replacement theology amongst us today.
She is a symbol of arrogance and pride and self-centredness.
The Talmud explains Esther 1:12, where Vashti refuses the summons of the king. It says, she sent him humiliating, insulting and undermining messages, thus kindling his wrath.
►In Hebrew, one of the words for “evil” is kelipa meaning an outer shell. For evil to exist it must be ‘clothed’ and ‘protected’ by its shell. The beauty of evil is in its outer appearance. The shell restricts the light and the true nature of what is underneath it. Take it away, and you meet its ugly heart.
Sin is the clothing of evil.
Vashti represents the reign of evil in the world, in its beautiful deception.
Vashti is a perfect example of the Jezebel spirit ruling in the church today (both female and male.) The desire of the Jezebel spirit is to conquer God, usurp His authority and ways.
Vashti was a Babylonian. Her grandfather was Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, who destroyed the Jewish temple. Her father was Belshazzar who threw a party and invited guests to drink out of the stolen temple vessels. “Drink of the god’s of gold and silver,” he said. This was when the writing appeared on the wall saying, “God has numbered your days and brought your kingdom to an end.” Babylon then fell to the Persians (modern day Iran). Vashti was the only survivor.
Babylon is one of the types of the world-system. When Babylon was destroyed, the Bible says it was never to rise again, which is a type of the soon-coming total destruction of this world-system, never to rise again, Vashti came out of this. Vashti was forbidden from ever entering the king’s presence.
►The Talmud records that Vashti refused to come before the king when summoned saying to him, “You were my father’s stable boy!”
Bear in mind that our Lord is the ultimate “stable boy,” the real king, born in a manger!
Hebrew legend claims that Vashti developed a skin disorder and grew a tail. There’s some interesting typology there! What you can say is – so much for her beauty!
►In Hebrew, the word “skin” is the same word for “blindness.” Note the similarity with word evil, meaning “outer shell” (above.)
Spiritual blindness is incredibly dangerous because it blinds you to truth, to error and to sin. In so doing it kills your conscience. Blindness silences and sears the conscience.
You know the term “thick skinned?” In truth, it also means thickly blinded!
Blindness almost always results in self-exaltation, because you must then elevate yourself to make up for your ignorance created by blindness.
Vashti represents all the churches of replacement theology and anti-Semitism.
Vashti represents the outwardly beautiful, evil slut, the whore of Babylon / Rome.
You can be born outwardly pretty like the whores of Hollywood, but you can’t be truly beautiful. Only after being born-again, are you thoroughly and enduringly beautiful.
Vashti was stripped of her royalty and her beauty and became truly ugly.
Vashti ended up joining the ranks of all other Jew haters, like Goliath and many churches today, destroyed or headed for destruction. They are all responsible for their own destruction.
The name Esther means: “Star.”
Genesis 26:4 “I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands, and in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed.”
In Hebrew Esther’s name is: “Hadassah.” This name means, “Myrtle,”- a beautiful tree.
When Esther was preparing to meet the king she was given the herb myrrh. Although it is bitter to taste, it has a beautiful aroma to it. Myrrh is a resin which turns to oil which bleeds from the injured branch of the Commiphora tree, which is also where frankincense comes from.
Myrrh is a herb used to prepare dead bodies for burial. It was brought to our Lord by the wise men. He was prepared for burial with myrrh.
(The church of Smyrna bears the name “myrrh” within it, and in the Revelation it is the church of suffering and martyrdom.)
The branches of the myrtle tree are to be used for the construction of the “booths” used at the Feast of Tabernacles. Interestingly; this command includes the branches of the olive tree too. (Nehemiah 8:15) So, here we see Esther associated with the myrtle tree, the olive tree and the herb, myrrh.
The olive tree in Romans 11 represents Jewish believers and Gentile believers, and the Feast of Tabernacles (booths) is symbolic of and will be fulfilled at the Second Coming and the Millennium.
Esther is a type of the true end-time church, with a pro-Israel bias.
Esther was inwardly beautiful. She was humble and ended up highly exalted to the throne. She was a true hero of God.
Esther is symbolic of, and represents the bride of Messiah.
Esther is all about a most beautiful woman, a true “virtuous woman”, with a beautiful mind. (Proverbs 31)
Esther and the Feast of Tabernacles:
Esther is associated in name and type with the myrtle tree and the olive tree, used for the construction of the “booths” of the Feast of Tabernacles. (Nehemiah 8:15)
The myrtle is a beautiful, low shrub-like tree, found in the desert regions of Israel, with a beautiful aroma coming from it. It contains within it a rare, expensive oil. It represents the beauty of humility.
The myrtle tree is known for being drought resistant growing within rocks and rocky outcrops. It is a tree “built” on the rock!
The flowers of the myrtle tree look like shining stars. (The name Esther means “star.”)
The image below shows the myrtle tree, its flowers and the blood red resin myrrh.
What’s in a name, you say? Well, as you can see plenty!
The olive branch of the tabernacle booth, also speaks of the olive tree and oil, which is anointing oil of the Bible, and represents both Jewish and Gentile believers in Romans 11.
The olive branch comes from the root which goes down deep – all the way to Adam!
The great mystery-miracle of the ages is seen in the cut-off, now dead branches of an olive tree, suddenly, like the “dry bones”, coming to life – new godly, spiritual life, as God grafts them back into their own tree again.
As this great miracle takes place, wild olive branches, grafted in, are cut off and fall dead to the ground because they became jealous of God grafting in the natural branch again. This represents much of the modern church of replacement theology.
Vashti represents the cut off branches and Esther the living, true branches?
Please note that three of the seven churches of the Revelation, will go into the tribulation period. They are Thyatira, Laodicea and Sardis. (There are only some in these churches who will be saved.)
Are you an apostate broken branch, with no oil? Are you a friend of the whore Vashti and the Hitler-style antichrist, Haman - Esther’s enemy? Are you a thorn in the side of Israel?
Isaiah 55:12-13 “You shall go out with joy, and be led out with peace; the mountains and the hills will break forth into singing and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn, shall come up the cypress tree, and the myrtle tree; and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”
Haman the Agagite:
Haman means: “The rager, the mad one, tumult”.
Agagite (Agag of the Amalekites) means: “Higher than high, powerful.”
The Agagites were the people who were arch-enemies of Israel. Haman came from them.
Interestingly, the Agagites were one of the Arab tribes which God had told the children of Israel to destroy as they went into the Promised Land. They only partially fulfilled this.
Numbers 33:50-55 (Instructions for the conquest of Canaan): “Moses, speak to the children of Israel and say to them: When you have crossed the Jordan into the land of Canaan, then you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, destroy all their engraved stones, destroy all their moulded images and demolish all their high places...but if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then it shall be that those who let remain, shall be irritants in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they shall harass you in the land where you dwell.
Thorns are a type of the curse!
Today Israel is plagued with many Arab “thorns” in their side, because they only partially obeyed God, when told to destroy these people. Note again in Isaiah 55 above, that when the Lord plants the myrtle tree it will be with no thorns!
If you don’t thoroughly destroy what God has told you to, it will come back to haunt you!
Today, Haman is a type of Hitler and all the world’s anti-Semites.
God made sure that Haman’s plan to kill the Jews would backfire on him, as it will on all those today of a similar ilk!
The great grand, glorious conclusion:
Esther had a secret relationship with the Jews which was not public knowledge. Esther was an orphan adopted by the Jew Mordecai. We too are adopted sons, adopted by Israel, grafted into the Jewish olive tree. (Romans8:17, 11:17)
If we disclaim, disown or replace our Jewish heritage and relationship, we will be cut off. That warning is mentioned twice in Romans 11!
To stand with and for Israel does not mean being anti-Arab. But it does mean being anti-those who are anti-God’s plans for Israel. In the final days, many Arabs will come to the Lord. (Isaiah 19)
The Gentile church was grafted in as a wild olive tree branch, and the Jews will be re-grafted in as much of the church is cut off for resisting God’s plans.
What to me is so shocking is that Romans 11 is so clear and such a powerful warning and so few pay any attention to it at all.
The application for today:
►Israel was created, elected, rebelled, rejected, repented, regathered, and accepted.
Those few words above, spell out the world’s greatest, most powerful, wonderful drama ever!
Those few words spell out the course of the history of this world from beginning to end. Those few words speak of untold millions of people going to hell and others to heaven – forever.
Vashti and Haman represent all the enemies of God’s plan for Israel in and out of the church.
Vashti will join the reign of the false prophet and the antichrist.
We are to repent on behalf of the Jews for all the damage the church has done to them. You may say that the Jews are guilty of so many things, but let me tell you that so are you! You and I are guilty as charged, but now forgiven, made right, pure and holy.
It is not just for our own good that we have been purified by the cross of Calvary, it’s to be transmitted to others.
Job 22:30 “He will even deliver one who is not innocent; yes he will be delivered by the purity of your hands.”
Isaiah 52:1-2 “Awake, awake! Put on your strength, O Zion; put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem the holy city! For the uncircumcised and the unclean shall no longer come to you. Shake yourself from the dust, arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem; release yourself from the bonds of your neck, O captive daughter of Zion!”
To fulfil God’s great, dramatic plan and purposes for Israel and the world, Israel is about to “awake, awake! And you and I can be part of that process. The way for the church is the way of Esther. It is to “comfort My people.” (Isaiah 40:1)
Numbers 24:9 “He (Israel) bows down and lies down like a lion. Who will rouse him? Blessed is he who blesses you, and cursed is he who curses you.”
►The most important verse in the book of Esther and one which my Lord lit up like a godly fire for me personally and The Prophetic Scroll is:
Esther 4:14 “If you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place...Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for a time such as this?”
Today the burial place and tomb of Queen Esther and Mordechai is located in Hamandan, Iran (Persia of old) It is a place revered by the Jews. The epitaph on the grave of Esther reads “Esther the righteous,” and on the grave of Mordechai, “The holy ark of Mordechai, the righteous.”
The walls around the tomb are inscribed with verses from the “Scroll of Esther.”
An ancient Hebrew tradition claims that the large hole between the two graves leads to Jerusalem. When Messiah comes the Jews of Persia will migrate to Jerusalem through it.
Iran recently downgraded the tomb from a World Heritage site.
A very good idea:
It’s an excellent thing to find out how things end before putting all your eggs in the stupid-basket! And God tells us just how things will end!
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.”
Vashti and Haman were heroes – of the devil himself, with all his characteristics. They are “heroes” now seen in the likeness of the modern media and many political leaders.
These are critical and important days and times. Because we are now in the lull before the storm, does not mean that these things are less important. They are all likely to break out onto the world stage with great drama very soon and suddenly.
Vashti the Jew-hater was banished from ever appearing before the king again. The proud, arrogant Haman was unceremoniously executed, and then had all his merry men killed by the Jews. Its not clever coming against God's choices and ways!
Esther was given the golden sceptre of authority and was dressed as royalty. She shared the king’s throne. The end of our faith is not resurrection but ascension to the throne of God as a co-heir and ruler as Esther was.
A Jewish couple recently had children. They named their son, Mordechai and their daughter Esther. Talk about having God on your side!
The Prophetic Scroll, is an Esther ministry, so if you want to get in its way – good luck!
I know many people who are of the Esther spirit. One in particular is my friend Joanne Smith in New York! I don’t think she knows how valuable her work has been for God’s kingdom and His people. She will be bright star shining forever!
I took these pictures in a fever-tree forest in KwaZulu/Natal.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 438: October 9th 2018
Psychological victory for today:
This edition flies in the face of much modern thinking.
I have written extensively on this subject in numerous editions, which you will find under the “Editions by Subject” button. But this is mostly new material (with oceans more still to come). The deep psychological problems of today will intensify greatly. A correct diagnosis is needed for a correct cure.”
The principles contained in this edition are age old and well-tested. I have fine-tuned them for today and the dayssoon to come. As we approach the end of this age of grace, these issues will multiply at an astounding rate. There is wonderful, glorious victory, exclusively for those who are of God.
Blessing, calm collected confidence, contentment, peace, tranquillity are here!
Sin, evil wickedness, judgement, truth, righteousness, holiness:
The headline, above and the image below, very succinctly describe and define the entire problem, solution, answer and the result.
The cross is the barrier, the impassable gulf, which separates the red from the blue. If you remove the cross you can’t get to the blue - ever! (Luke 16:26)
●The word sin means, “to miss the mark”, or “wander from the path” or “to violate God’s law.”
●The word evil means, “rooted in sin, bad, morally diseased, blind in a spiritual sense.”
●The word wicked means “guilty one, criminal, morally wrong, condemned, ungodly”.
These are not just word meanings! These, in particular have a powerful evil ‘anointing’ behind them creating slavery!
So, that’s man’s problem and everyone is born into the problem. The only way to deal with it all is through judgement. The cross is the instrument of judgement to salvation for the believer. Unbelievers await a terrifying judgement with no salvation, still to come.
Evil is essentially a person. His name is Satan. He does not like being restrained. That’s like keeping him in hand-cuffs.
Evil has many ‘sons’ which rear their cursed heads along the way. It is our job to behead them. If not they escape detection and cause much chaos.
The oldest son of Evil is named ‘pride.’ He is sneaky and deadly.
Pride is Satan’s ‘anointing’ on people! It flows down, lubricating the victim to serve Satan.
Many Christians mistake pride in a minster for anointing. They will both fall in the ditch.
Even the disciples did not see or recognise the proud traitor Judas, in their midst. (Joh17:12)
The world will fall for the antichrist. They will think his pride is God’s anointing! (1 John 2:18)
The wonderful, hidden safety net for today:
The world is going crazy. Many Christians are jumping on the crazy-wagon too. If ever there is a time for urgent, protective armour it is now. If you do not have this spiritual armour, I wish you the best of luck on your journey to crazy-land - psychological hell!
Spiritual armour is kept for distribution at God’s military depot called “The Armoury of Gifts.”
A most important, critical, yet largely ignored, piece of armour is your conscience. It is part of the “helmet of salvation.” (Ephesians 6:17)
A godly conscience is one of the convicting forces in your heart. Set it over your thoughts.
Your conscience is your very own judge residing in your heart. You can accept its ruling, or reject it. It doesn’t make decision for you, it just enlightens or condemns. A seared conscience is a most dangerous thing. It leaves you aimlessly adrift in this crazy world. (1Timothy 4:2)
A seared conscience is like leprosy, which deadens your nerve receptors to pain, leaving you vulnerable to much injury.
How do you sear your conscience? You do so by turning away from God’s word and comparing yourself with others and the world around you. You use your intellect and reason, above God’s word, and you do it often. You refuse to repent and obey the still-small voice in your heart.
If you have seared your conscience as a believer, it will be replaced with Satan’s conscience, which will alert you to the will of the masses, while you turn against God.
The believers conscience is one with the Holy Spirit, and alive to God. But when seared, you become alive to Satan’s will and program. A godly conscience is one of your saving graces in this day!
This is especially evident in teachers of the gospel. Once they have seared their conscience, their hearts are hardened in their pride. They then change established doctrine and attack those not in their sinking ship with them.
The majority of Christians today have a seared conscience. You can see it by what they listen to, watch, spend their time on, and by their neutrality on the big sin-issues of the day. They have no compunction, remorse, contrition and no repentance. They have stabbed their own conscience in the heart.
A seared conscience makes you delusional with a propensity to become a moral monster. It gives you a false sense of security, a false peace, and keeps guilt entrenched in you. The end result is that you will be totally useless to God and His kingdom.
A seared conscience opens the door to much demonic activity, and leads you right into many curses. If you are silent in the face of so much evil and error today, that is proof enough that your conscience is seared and you are on the doorstep of hell.
We see a classic case of people with a seared conscience in Romans 1:18 and onwards, where these people who practise or support homosexuality have been handed over to be controlled by their lusts. Three times in this one chapter they are handed over! Their conscience is gone.
In the tribulation period we see masses tuning on God and cursing Him because of the judgements, – all a sign of people with a seared conscience!
Here is a great description of a person with a seared conscience (In contra-position):
Psalm 119:53 “Indignation (Lit=horror) has taken hold of me because of the wicked who forsake your word.”
That shows David with a godly conscience. Those with a seared conscience have no horror at the world’s wickedness and are therefore totally useless to God’s kingdom, although they dance and prance around the pulpit, leading their blind ones.
Today the world is speeding into unrestrained evil and doom, and yet most of the church sits idly by, giving silent, moral support to the devil, because they have no conscience anymore. With your conscience seared you are well on the way to becoming a Christian psychopath!
The good news is that you can get a godly conscience back again, if you have seared it. But it is very costly. You will have to change your ways, your friends, your thinking and all your priorities. Our Lord is the God of many second chances!
The restrainer of evil:
The well-taught Christian knows well that they themselves are the biblical “restrainer”. The true church, filled with the Spirit of God restrains the antichrist from being released into the world, which is soon to come. (2 Thessalonians 2:6)
In a certain wonderful sense, a godly conscience is our own personal restrainer. Do you see why a seared conscience is so dangerous? It’s because the family of Satan – sin, evil and wickedness, come in like a flood.
I hope you see where else this takes us!
A pre-tribulation rapture of the restraining force – the church, must occur before the antichrist can even appear on the world stage.
The rapture leaves the world with no conscience and no restraint of evil! Yes, Israel will take over the great commission in the tribulation, but in the face of terrible evil.
The heart of the criminal mind is to come against its restrainer of evil, which to them is the law. If you remove the restraining law, you have anarchy and a world of evil and sin. In this regard, the law of the land is a type of the Spirit-filled church – the restrainer.
The Old Covenant law was also a restrainer of evil. On the day of Pentecost, it was removed and shifted into the hearts of believers. What happened then? The dispensation changed to the church age. Now we are on verge of the rapture of the church – those with the law in their hearts. What will happen? How right you are! Yes, the dispensation will change again, completing Daniel’s 70th week, amidst unrestrained evil and wickedness!
The end result of the effects of the cross and the Great White Throne judgment is: An end of transgression and sin and everlasting righteousness. (Daniel 9:24)
Modern man – with the heart of a dumb turkey:
Jeremiah 10:23 “O Lord, I know the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man who walks to direct his own steps.”
Jeremiah 17:5 “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart departs from the Lord.”
Note the two verses below:
**Isaiah 7:9 “...If you will not believe, you will not be established.”
**Isaiah 54:14 “In righteousness you shall be established.”
Note the two verses below:
**Isaiah 59:8-9 “They have made themselves crooked paths; whoever takes that way shall not know peace. Therefore justice is far from us. We look for light, but there is darkness! For brightness but we walk in blackness.”
**Isaiah 32:17 “The work of righteousness will be peace and the effects of righteousness quietness and assurance forever.”
So, in these four verses above we see two clear cut distinct ways and options, with no middle ground and with clear results.
I often wonder why God said in His word “I set before life and death, blessing and cursing – choose life.” (Deuteronomy 30:19) Well, isn’t that obvious! Why say “choose life”? Apparently people are dumb turkeys and need a little help from their God.
The value of the counsel of the secular psychologist is no more than gobble, gobble, gobble!
Biblical psychology blows secular psychology out of the water – never the twain shall meet!
At the end of the day, secular psychology makes you hard-hearted. Biblical psychology makes you humble-hearted and a recipient of the miracle workings of the cross.
The main thing with all forms of secular psychology is not to make you better, but to change your value system under the auspices of the chief shrink – Satan. All modern psychology tries to take you back into the recesses of your mind to find things, situations or people to pin the blame on for your erratic behaviour or stress.
We go back too, all the way to the cross. We pin all the blame for all our sin on that cross and we are free indeed – forever!
The only way you can fix all the psychological problems of mankind is by going back – far back and being unborn of Adam and then being born-again of the “last Adam.” Then you can receive and know the counsel of God and His wonderful ways.
Psalm 50:15 “Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you and you shall glorify Me.”
No matter how far back you go, you run into Adam! His unredeemed blood is actually the root of the problems and only the blood of Messiah at the cross can fix it. That’s why secular psychology fails totally – they go back and look in the wrong place!
When your psychologist takes you back to find someone to blame, you end up blaming them and holding them in unforgiveness. You charge them and hold them guilty, but it makes you a monster, because unforgiveness makes you guilty and that eats you alive and makes you a hot-head!
Bear in mind that the believer going to the unbelieving psychologist receives a transfer of illigitimate spirits as well, further compounding his problems. When, in counsil, we go back to our Lord and His word, we receive the additional transfer of His pure Spirit.
Only the Bible under the leading of the Spirit of God has all the answers to man’s problems.
Man is accountable for his own actions. People don’t like that. They want to pin the blame on others so that their own sin-nature can go free.
Psalm 18:1-6 “I will love You, O Lord my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; my God, my strength...In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried out to my God. He heard my voice from His temple and my cry came before His ears.”
Psalm 18:20 “The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands, He has recompensed me.”
If you are born again of the Spirit of God, learn to beat a path to your heart. There you will find a wellspring of pure undefiled holy truth, stillness and quiet. It’s there – right in your heart.
The unbeliever beats a path to his heart and finds it pumping Adam’s sin-filled blood, polluted with the law of the sin-nature, which is sin and death.
With a clear, well-defined, biblical point of reference in our lives for all things we can fly high and right. Our world view becomes clear and we are free.
I recall in my younger days as a pilot, we were taught always to turn to, and trust our instruments when we couldn’t see the horizon clearly, due to imbedded clouds. Sometimes as I looked out of the cockpit, I would see false horizons in the clouds, which normally cause you to trim the aircraft wrongly. But the instruments said: “Hey watch out buddy, your eyes are deceiving you!”
In this day of many dark dangerous clouds, only the ‘instruments’ of God’s word are truly correct and safe to keep you secure and right with God. He is our glorious reference point for all things.
Isaiah 33:6 “Wisdom and knowledge (of God) will be the stability of your times and strength of salvation; the fear of the Lord is His treasure.”
What an amazing verse (above.) We need this stability in these end-times! That word “stability” comes from the root word for “gyro.” Gyroscopic instruments are used to set the course of an aircraft as well as giant ships, sailing through the storms.
Human rights and the media:
People get easily offended and become a lit fuse when their human rights, especially the ones given by Satan, are challenged.
You may get your rights, but beware, one of these days you will be shown no mercy. You will get justice for all your hidden sin!
When you yield to a situation it brings in grace. It releases forgiveness and makes right. When your self-life is offended try yielding!
Obviously we don’t yield to the devil, but in personal relationships, it works wonders.
When you won’t let an offence against you go, you are harbouring bitterness, and it will bounce back on you. A root of bitterness poisons many! (Hebrews 12:15)
Psalm 119:165 “Great peace have they that love Your word and nothing causes them to be offended.”
The mark of godly maturity is when we don’t please self, but deny and die to self. Taking up our cross means laying down our lives for others.
The mass-media teaches you unforgiveness and revenge. They make you hard hearted and proud. They lead you to the heart of the devil. The true work of the cross does not enter the hard-hearted. Ask Israel about that!
Isaiah 30:1 “Woe to the rebellious children, says the Lord, who take counsel, but not of Me, and who devise plans, but not of My Spirit, that they may add sin to sin.” (Media)
“Taking counsel, not of Me,” is taking counsel from the media and the masses. Note that the sin they produce expands, grows and intensifies!
Jeremiah 7:28 “You shall say to them, ‘This is a nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God, nor receive correction. Truth has perished and been cut off from their mouth.’” (Media)
The media can only lead you the wrong way because they are born of Adam and driven by the proud god of this world – Satan. They are 'annointed' by him!
How do you know whether you are on the right track? ●You will overcome Satan, sin, the world, the flesh and the demonic. ●You will live with a deep inner contentment and inner peace. ●Your lifestyle will be holy. ●You will be led out of all error and into all truth and ●see things to come.
In my own case, personally, because I believe we are very close to all these end time events breaking out, I have spent a lot of prayerful time in general repentance, fasting, and examining my faith, with special emphasis on cleaning up every aspect of my thought life.
Those going the wrong way will always be unstable, have an inner restlessness, and never be satisfied. They will be unable to overcome sin and the world, and will be blind to biblical things to come.
A wrong diagnosis will result in a wrong cure, which exacerbates the problem!
Genesis 6:5 “The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continuously.”
Man is accountable. The secular psychologist will never use the word sin. They pass no judgement on sin. Renaming sin is legitimising it.
Psalm 51:4 David: “Against You only have I sinned.”
Renaming sin does not remove its heart and change it to righteousness. Only the cross removes sin and delivers you to righteousness. If you remove the cross, you have to replace it with something. Psychologists replace the cross with useless psycho-babble!
If the psychologist could have total success with someone, that person would still end in hell.
1 John 3:21 “If our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God.”
Satan, with his agents, the media and the secular psychologist, camouflage the sin-nature and disguises it, making it your great friend! But that nagging guilt hangs in there, refusing to go, and wreaks havoc.
Modern thinking has simply removed the word sin, or rationalised it, but its heart remains evil, full of Satan and his ways!
If you reject the ways of God, you have to believe that man is inherently good.
The fear of God is the way to stability. The fear of God includes the fear of hell! That is the way to mental health.
The closer to God you get, the more dramatic the changes will be in you and the more rocked, shocked and astounded you will be...all for glory!
It’s a true glory story!
Psalm119:108 “Teach me your judgements, Lord and I will learn righteousness.”
There is a way out of stress, strain and anxiety. You can leave your mental ball and chain behind. Stop playing the blame game – there are no winners.
Our Lord is calling you to a new holiness a new dimension of your walk with Him. You must be different, above, flying higher than before. Turn your back on the cowards of the word walling in the cow-dung
Isaiah 43:13 “...I work and who can reverse it?”
So, just join the winners! – Choose life.
I took the background picture in the Okavango Delta and combined it with one of my elephant sunset pictures.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 437: October 2nd 2018
Destroying God’s institutions:
This edition will give you a fresh look at what is happening in the world now. It will give you eyes to see clearly into some of these hidden things. It should inspire you to be ready and get ready for the last days of this era of madness, and hope of glory soon to come.
A nation under God stands on a tripod of three major institutions. They are church, family and state. That’s God’s will. But Satan will have numerous, temporary so-called victories along the way. That shouldn’t bother us too much because we are called out of his world, which is soon to be destroyed.
So, it’s all going to be dissolved, but that does not mean we should just become totally passive about Satan’s advance, because eternal lives are at stake. There are numerous lessons to be learnt.
Those who go into the tribulation will see very clearly why they are there and how it went wrong for them. The hand of the Lords still holds out grace to those who would repent.
With many of these institutions it is already too late to rescue them, but as you identify them, you can individually and personally avoid the traps and live right with God.
The big issue with God’s institutions is that they come from God and are backed by His authority. (Romans 13:1-2) All authority is from God. This simply means that authority structures in a nation are ordained of God to preserve law and order and common decency.
If you can get rid of, or neutralise God’s institutions, you get rid of His authority. That is the open door for Satan to come in and take control. He will gain control of the world in the seven-year tribulation. Godly institutions will be perverted and changed producing satanic control. (Isaiah 10:14)
What we are witnessing today is the demon door-keeper forcing the doors open wider and wider for the antichrist to walk in.
Political correctness is the veil of Satan – cursed by God in many cases. If we are not careful, we will be blinded too by this subtle veil and be weighed down and crippled!
The institutions of God:
The institutions of God in a nation and even the whole world, are all about structure, stability, order and authority. They are about moral decency, the preservation of liberty and freedom within a nation under God. They are about prosperity, flourishing business and economies.
The institutions that are really under serious attack are all those that are clearly outlined in the Bible.
What follows is some of the godly institutions and principles being eroded and attacked today. They all fall into either of the three overall institutions, church family and state:
●Capital punishment (Genesis 9:6.) ●God-defined marriage. ●Discipline of the young. ●God-defined gender identity. ●Abortion (murder of the innocent) ●Homosexuality and perversions. ●The overthrow of Bible- founded law and order. ● Arising socialism. ●Arising anti-Semitism.
There are many more.
The methods of madness:
When God’s institutions are neutralised it does not leave a vacuum. Satan comes in like a flood. God’s authority is replaced with that of the world and its god.
World peace is one of the world’s stated goals. But the Bible says “there is no peace for the wicked.” (Isaiah 48:22). To have true peace you must get rid of wickedness and only the cross does that! Rather than get rid of wickedness, the world gets rid of the cross!
The world’s effort at peace will last a terrible seven years. The word’s way will last forever!
Isaiah 9:6-7 “Unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given and the government shall be upon His shoulder. His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end...”
Satan’s overall method of dooming the world is to remove the Bible from society, and then bit by bit introduce a new thinking – post truth thinking. New, post-truth, modern thinking is as old as Lucifer!
What follows are some of the many socio-political terms relating to these things, which are well worth knowing and knowing them well in this day.
Naive realism: Believing what you see and hear is real. It operates on majority consensus, which believes that if the majority thinks a thing is right therefore it must be right. If the world perceives something to be truth, the perception makes it right and true! To “naive realism,” I say: Absolute hogwash!
Blind spot bias: Failure to see the impact of your own error, while seeing only your view. This is the curse operating in the proud.
Group speak: This is crowd psychology or the belief that collective crowd thinking is the confirmation of being right. In the church it is called “band-wagon theology.”
Political correctness has become the devil’s Trojan horse. It is for brainless boneheads, numskulls and morons. You will also find it amongst intellectual screwballs.
The mass-media has the role of disclosing and declaring the ways of the devil, and attacking those who are not in their deadly cul de sac with them.
The media is the demon-infested gatekeeper of hell. They are the keepers of the collective mindset of the world. They are the authority of the world-system. The mantra of the media-machine is to delegitimize the authority structures of God and exalt those of their god.
The media claim to be independent. There is no such thing. Everyone is dependent on God or god!
The media are disseminators of entrapment. They are the gods of reliable lies.
Satan is the true enemy of the people therefore the media, is the trumpet of that enmity.
Are you listening to and receiving the shrieks of the media, or the warning shrill of the shofar?
Stand apart and separate:
Galatians 1:10 “Do I seek to please men? If I still pleased men, I would not be a servant of Messiah.”
2 Corinthians 10:12 “We dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves, but they, measuring themselves by themselves and comparing themselves among themselves are not wise.”
2 Corinthians 13:5 “Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith...”
The world is headed for global rule. You need to be an insulated isolationist by faith!
There are very few blowing the trumpet of warning these days, even within the church. Yes there are some, thankfully, and they are doing an excellent job, but generally speaking there is no mayday call, no SOS and no siren sounding. They world at large is oblivious to impending destruction.
Today there is no shame, no consciousness of incredible evil all around. The world, full of contamination, is on a crusade against all that is of God.
The world can only deteriorate and devolve because of who its god is. If its god was the Lord, it would be improving and getting better with reflections of that in society, in morality and holiness.
The world led by its media-mouth believes that they are on the way to creating a better world because they believe in the inherent goodness of man!
If the inherent goodness of man were true, it would mean that Satan is ultimately good and Adam needs no redeemer. It means Satan is a saviour. It actually makes God the villain.
Many churches are already on this bandwagon, inside the Trojan horse!
Let’s go to the theatre:
►This play will be on stage for seven years. There are warm-up performances on the go.
Act one opens with a tragic concerto to the devil’s drum beat. The dance of imbeciles is on stage. They are to be joined by wailing wizards, and witches on a doom-stick. The spotlight falls on devils and demons in the dark.
Act two opens with fools and fairies of hell - real dancing demons. “The carnage of carelessness” is the song playing.
Act three of the play is: “Tricked and trapped by the devil’s deceptions.” The sound of the terrible, chilling, chattering, vultures is all around.
The final act of the tragedy is “Welcome to hell!” acted out to the “The dance macabre.”
►In the age old theatre on the other side of the road, called “The Alpha & Omega” an ancient play is on stage, full of glorious drama. It is an ecstatic rhapsody-romance. It is playing to a much smaller crowd. A symphony of majestic, magnificent melody is being heard. It will soon reach its crescendo of grandeur in celebration.
The final act of this play will continue for all eternity.
Which theatre are you sitting in? “Ask for the old paths, where the good way is, then you will find rest for your souls.” (Jeremiah 6:16)
The final response and act of God to sin is judgement. Then comes immediate righteousness and holiness. For true Christians that is all contained in the cross. For those not born again – good luck!
Choose your judgement – past or future!
Choose the cross of Calvary or the Great White Throne from which all unbelievers are cast into hell.
Judgement is a purifying thing. It is love in action. It produces righteousness and holiness.
The church should be way ahead of the world, seeing what’s coming, warning and preparing the brethren. It should be on the cutting edge! Yet much of the church is stone dead to prophecy and others give it a passing mention on their way to games of worldly prosperity.
Of course prosperity is right and godly when under the control of a Spirit-led individual.
It’s important to know that the entire book of Acts is all about the early apostles building the early church and coming against opposition to it. Today the situation is exactly the same. The church has been built, partially destroyed through the dark ages, and is now being rebuilt.
What follows are some verses relating to the early church dealing with opposition to God’s work:
Acts 13:8-11 “...Then Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, looked intently at him and said, ‘O full of all deceit and fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord? And now indeed the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you shall be blind not seeing the sun for a time.’ And immediately a dark mist fell on him and he went around seeking someone to lead him by the hand.”
Acts 20:30-31 “I know that after my departure, savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Also from among yourselves, men will arise speaking perverse things to draw away the disciples after themselves.”
Romans 16:17 “Now I urge you brethren, note those who cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which you learned and avoid them.”
2 Peter 1:12 “...Be established in the present truth.” (New Covenant epistles.)
2 Thessalonians 3:14 “If anyone does not obey our word in this epistle, note that person and do not keep company with him, that he may be ashamed.”
2 Timothy 3:13 “Evil men and imposters will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.”
2 Timothy 4:3-4 “The time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers ...but you be watchful in all things.”
2 John 1:10 “If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your home, nor greet him.”
Colossians 2:8 “Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit according to the traditions of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Messiah.”
John 9:39 “For judgement I have come into this world, that those who do not see may see, and those who see may be made blind.”
What an incredible verse (above). It is all wrong according to the world, who thinks that they can see. The world hates the judgement of God because it takes away their corrupted judgment. God has blinded them. Their truth is a great lie with its source in the world, the flesh and sin nature – In the heart of Satan!
John 7:24 “Do not judge according to appearances, but do judge with righteous judgement.”
Romans 2:2 “The judgement of God is according to truth against those who practise such things.”(Homosexuality – previous chapter)
1 Corinthians 2:15 “He who is spiritual judges all things, yet himself is rightly judged by no one.”
Sin will be eternally removed, but not the loss of reward. That will manifest in us eternally.
The church must stand securely like a pillar in the temple. Those that pollute the truth are the devils’ secret disciples. Beware of them!
1 Timothy 3:15 “The house of the living God, the church, is the pillar and foundation of truth.”
What eventually will manifest is who you really are, and not who you think you are. We will ultimately all know who we really are, by God’s estimation of us, as seen in our eternal reward state. Everyone of heaven will see and know!
A borderless world with no barriers, restraint, punishment, no private ownership of wealth, are all the flavour of the democratic day. Today, we are seeing humanism’s last stand.
Don’t allow yourself to be drawn into the devil’s devises.
Too many chameleon Christians, are piggybacking on the beast!
The failed Spirit-less, divided churches are unwittingly supporting a new one-world divided against God. They have a one-world conference on the go now. The keynote speakers are:
Rev. I.N. Sane, Rev A.B. Normal, Rev, I.M. Nuts, Rev M.E. Lunatick, Bishop A.M.A. Piggy.
We need the living light of God in our lives now like never before, by His Spirit.
The Spirit of God, when He has come personally into your life, “shows you things to come.” (John 16:13) The spirit of the world and its god shows you great things to come too– all a lie! They will not come. Destruction will come!
Those with no interest in eschatology do not have the Spirit of God at work in them (in these areas). You need it all to be stable and to endure in these dangerous days. It’s one thing to be attacked, but not to be able to see that you are being attacked – Oi Vey!
Job 24:13 “There are those who rebel against the light; they do know its ways nor abide in its path.”
When you are far from the truth and in the dark, these things will be foreign to you, when they do approach you will reject God’s ways.
Today we are in a world that rejects godly correction and discipline. It is foreign to most parents today. They have bought into the post-truth world of no discipline for the young. That is why their children have no respect for authority structures and have no barriers or borders in their lives.
These parents say that this is the way of love. Little do they know that they truly hate their children! (Proverbs 13:24) Likewise, if you are exposed to a gospel that removes discipline, correction, rebuke and the like, you are sitting under hatred in action!
The cross of Calvary is in fact the most powerful, supernatural thing ever. It kills the past, purifies the present, delivers from evil and paves the way to golden glory – forever! That old wooden cross is the licence and key to the most incredible, ever imagined city – the New Jerusalem.
Imagine an eternal home built by the one who created and built every single atom in the universe and in fact the universe! Satan builds too. He builds down towards hell, with tools of destruction, rebellion, anarchy, disorder, lawlessness and chaos.
We will have a King of glory and a new world of godliness in the Millennium and beyond. There will be no democracy, no human rights council or courts. There will be no level playing field of values and opinions. It will be truly a world under God. It will be a universe under God! One God, one truth!
The Spirit of God in man convicts us of sin, righteousness and judgement. In the unsaved, man is blinded to these things. The unsaved have a great chant: “All things will continue as they always have. (2 Peter 3:4) It’s all going to fall down – all fall down!
►When you see the world with godly revelation you see Humpty Dumpty.
The feasts of horror and glory:
Revelation 19:17-18 “...Come and gather together for the supper of great God, that you may eat the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave both small and great.”
Ezekiel 39:17-18 “Assemble yourselves and come, come gather together from all sides to My sacrificial meal which I am sacrificing for you (Israel), a great meal on the mountains of Israel, that you may eat the flesh and drink the blood. You shall eat the flesh of the mighty, drink the blood of the princes of the earth...”
Revelation 19:7 “Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.”
Revelation 11:15 “Then the seventh angel sounded, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying. The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Messiah, and He shall reign forever and ever.”
So, mass-media, world-system, world church, and all the unsaved, enjoy your short-lived (seven-year) victory over God. It is seven years of hell on earth and eternity in hell, or seven years in heaven and then in eternal, absolute glorious, all-new victory!
I took these two pictures some time ago in our beautiful wilds and merged them.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
