- US Ambassador to Israel says Trump will not evict Jews from Judea and Samaria (so-called West Bank) Pompeo says US “fully prepared for military action in Middle East.”
- US Democratic candidate, Elizabeth Warren plans to withhold aid to Israel because of the “settlements.” The anti-Israel bias is showing in the Dems again!
- Netanyahu gives up effort to form a government on his 70th birthday and returns mandate to President Rivlin, who will now give the mandate to Gantz for a try.
- Syrian Kurds call on Israel to take action against Turkey! Pompeo says Trump ready to use military force against Turkey if needed.
- Numbers of Arab states are simultaneous “warming” towards Israel. These nations are Iran’s enemies. This is a fulfilment of Bible prophecy. (Isaiah 19) Some are: Saudi Arabia (Sheba) UAE (Part of Dedan), Bahrain, Oman, and other Gulf States. Washington is pushing for these Arab states to unite in support of Israel, creating an anti-Iran alliance. There are many reasons why this would be good, for the region, including economic and strategic in relation to the Gulf of Mexico as a prime oil-tanker route.
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
Isaiah 56:5 “...I will give them (Israel) an everlasting name that they should not be cut off.”
Isaiah 66:8 “Who has heard of such a thing, shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation (Israel) be born at once?”
Hosea 11:1 “When Israel was a child, I loved him...”
Exodus 4:22 “Thus says the Lord: ‘Israel is My son, My firstborn.”
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah and to identify the rift, and the needed restoration. There is much in the church that needs to change before it can be fully reconciled with the Jew. Likewise, changes in Jewish thinking are also needed.
18th October 2019
Shabbat Shalom to all!
- There is still no Israeli government in sight as Bennie Gantz rejects Netanyahu’s latest offer to form a unity government. But Gantz says he is thinking about it. It is this impasse that is delaying the release of the “Deal of the Century.”
- AThe US brokered ceasefire in Syria is falling apart one day after it was instituted! Mike Pompeo tells Netanyahu this morning (18th October) that the US will still support Israel.
- Late breaking news is that this morning 18th October, the ceasefire has broken down with renewed fighting, shelling and bombing in the region of the ceasefire as smoke rises from towns.
- Iran says it will continue to violate the nuclear deal as it moves to higher levels of uranium enrichment, provoking the world and Israel in particular.
- The Russian bear is making serious, strategic advances in Syria and in the wider Middle East. Iran and Turkey are fateful players, preparing the way for WW111 (The war of Gog and Magog, Syria and others. We are witnessing a very fast reshuffling of the stage.
- What we are seeing in the Middle East is battle for power and control – all perfectly prophesied!
Israel has a beady eye on it all. Prophetically, Israel must be a key component of these wars. It really doesn’t matter who does what, because prophecy will and is being fulfilled!
By the way, because the Bible prophecies certain things that does not mean it is sanctioning those things. They will come to pass right or wrong.
Bible interpretation and application:
In this report I want to draw your attention to some very important issues relating to our understanding of the Bible. These issues have always been important, but now as we head into these dangerous end-times, it is of critical importance.
We need to understand that Bible prophecy comes in various forms. Sometimes it is written directly for the present time exclusively. For example, the prophecies of Isaiah 17 relating to the soon coming destruction of Damascus, Syria, have never had an occurrence in history. Therefore its interpretation and application is for one point in time – now.
Then, we have many prophecies that were events that took place historically. That would be the interpretation. But they may have application to future events. This is called prophecy with a double reference. In these cases you need to be well disciplined in your application. Never take and application or analogy too far!
In dealing with prophetic application you must always be on guard against presumption. You really do need the gifts of the Spirit to correctly see into prophecy. Bear in mind that the word of God is useless, dead letter, or it is alive and presently speaking. The baptism in the Spirit makes the difference.
Sometimes a prophetic vision or message may be built on a number of different sources, and like a grand conductor, the Spirit of God puts it all together.
Prophetic interpretation and application must not contradict any verse in the Bible.
There is much to be said about prophetic dreams and visions. Personally, I don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater, but I’m very cautious. More so from whom they originate.
But, the Bible says that there will be an increase in dreams and vision as the end approaches. We must be watchful, but also watchful in relation to whom these dreams and visions come from, because many, in their pride, are on the manipulation band wagon!
The central purpose behind all prophecy is to reveal and inform us about the coming of our Lord, It is o give us knowledge, understanding, wisdom and sight of His soon coming and all the events surrounding His coming. It is bring Israel face to face with her Messiah.
Bible prophecy also reveals the work of the enemy. It reveals the modern kiss of Judas in replacement theology!
Time is very short!
We must always beware of spiritual novices with some of these gifts. Many of them create a big mess, which has to be unravelled.
We must always be aware of the spirit in and behind certain Bible teachers and ministers. Too many have a pride and ego problem, which the devil uses to bring in great error. Too many are subtly creating division, which becomes a sect and finally a cult!
Beware of those who come with forcefull "private or personal interpretations". (2 Peter 1:20)
Here is a shocking portion of scripture:
1 Corinthians 1:10-13 “I plead with you brethren, by the name of our Lord, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgement...Now I say to you this, that each of you says, ‘I am of Paul’, or ‘I am of Apollos’, or ‘I am of Cephas’, or ‘I am of Christ.’ Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptised in the name of Paul?”
This scripture above is a terrible indictment on the church. Today we see so clearly, the disastrous effects of a church divided. Yet we still the proud and arrogant, trying to “capture” and control people in their divisive sects.
There is strength in unity. There is extra strength in godly unity. In these days a solid Spirt-led knowledge of God’s word is an absolute necessity and a safety net
You should listen to no one who has does not have the evidence and fruit of listening to, and understanding the voice of God. There are many voices out there, all vying for your attention. Learn to be discerning and shut off the voices of the world.
In your pursuit of God and in your own study time, you need to be seriously disciplined. I heard someone say the other day: “They’ve taken away discipline in the schools now the children don’t respect us, their parents anymore.”
How true and tragic that statement is. It applies jus as well to your relationship with our Lord. No discipline no respect for Him and don’t expect to get anything from Him.
Part of our discipline involves waiting patiently for our Lord. What alternative do we have? But keep your spiritual eyes and ears open. Things may suddenly develop very fast!
Edition 462: March 26th 2019
The deal of the ages:
These are words of life!
You are of enormous eternal value – potentially!
As the world races off faster and faster to its doom, stress, anxiety and all their offshoots are also racing ahead. The world is trying very hard to rescue the world! That’s like trying to lift yourself up by your shoelaces! You just can’t do it.
The “Deal of the Century” will be the world’s attempt to bring peace to the Middle East, the world’s way, but in the heart of the deal is Satan enshrined, enthroned, but camouflaged.
But the deal of the ages is another story!
Many Christians ignore Bible prophecy to their detriment. Many have been led that way by wolves in pulpits, and many have themselves to blame, being weakened by their neglect.
Most people live for themselves and their home – this world, and have no idea about eternity.
Many worldly Christians are not interested in the things of God. In fact if our Lord was here now in the flesh, they would reject Him for obstructing their fun in the sun. They would choose the criminal, Barabbas again!
Many are pursuing, the ways of Barabbas and his fruits! You can cast down the word of God in the street, or see it as your necessary food, to eat now! (Job 23:12, Jeremiah 15:16)
The deal of the ages begins by design, plan and promise in eternity past and moves through to the cross of Calvary, where the deal was signed in the blood of the Lamb, and on through to eternity, where believers will rule and reign in the universe with our Lord.
God’s deal of the ages:
It all began before the foundation of the world – when our Lord was crucified! (1 Peter 1:20) The deal of the ages is only for the saved.
In the eternal scheme of things, our Lord’s crucifixion runs through all ages. That’s not easy to understand, but it’s the way it is!
John 6:54 “Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood (the cross) has eternal life.”
►Eternal: Strong’s 166 – “Aionios,” Meanings: Ages, everlasting, without end, never ceasing.
Titus 1:2 “God, who cannot lie, before time began, promised us our hope in eternal life.”
Ecclesiastes 3:11 “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has put eternity in their hearts.”
John 10:27-28 “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me and I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.”
John 12:25 “He who loves his life (soul) will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.”
2 Corinthians 4:17-18 “Our light affliction which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things seen are temporary, but the things not see are eternal.”
2 Corinthians 5:1 “We know that if our earthly house, this tent (body) is destroyed, we have a building from God, not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.”
God’s deal of the ages is all about eternity!
No peace for the world:
The world cries “peace, peace,” as it works for world peace. There is a peace that the world gives. It is of the god of the world. It’s a lie and a fraud.
John 14:27 “Peace I leave you; My peace I give to you, not as the world gives...”
Isaiah 48:22 “There is no peace, says the Lord, for the wicked.”
John 16:33 “In Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation.”
The unsaved are infused with the fallen, sin-impregnated, unredeemed blood of Adam. The born-again Christian also has the blood of Adam in him, but in his blood is the invisible, sin-free, spiritual, supernatural blood of Messiah!
When you study all the verses relating to destruction of the world-system and compare them to the glory that lies ahead for believers, you can see how far apart these worlds are.
The promise of God to those who are saved is the metamorphosis from this life to glory!
That which God has attached to Himself by word, promise or covenant is of great value. God has placed His own name in Jerusalem, making it of great value, for His purposes. He has attached Himself to Israel, the remnant Jews and to Christians by covenant promise. We are of great value.
We see this in the parable of hidden treasure, where a man finds great treasure hidden in a field and goes and sells everything he has to buy the field, with the treasure therein. A man finds a pearl of great price and sells all that he has to buy it. (Matthew 14:44-46)
This is all about your priorities and what you attach value to.
Paul says that he considers the things of this world as dung compared to the excellence of the knowledge of God. That’s exactly what far too many Christians have attached value to – cow dung!
The Bible says that qualifying believers will receive eternal rewards described as great valuable treasure, gold and silver. The rewards are described as the brightness of the stars. They are also described as valuable, eternal crowns. They are described as the victory prize.
These rewards are not for all Christians. They are exclusively for those who meet the requirements. This is obviously not a salvation issue, but an issue of rewards for those who are already saved.
The five crowns:
●The incorruptible crown. (1 Corinthians 9:25). ●The crown of righteousness. (2 Timothy 4:7-8) ●The crown of life, also called the martyrs crown. (James 1:12 Revelation 2:10) ●The crown of joy. (Philippians 4:1 1 Thessalonians 2:9) ●The crown of glory. (1 Peter 5:4)
There are different degrees of punishment in hell as revealed in numerous verses.
Israel and the Millennium:
Israel is the main theme and subject of the Millennium. The Jews saved in the tribulation period go through into the Millennium, with Gentiles who are also saved then. But the Millennium is the crowning glory for Israel.
At the end of the Millennium all believers of all ages go through into the eternity of eternities.
Psalm 50:2-6 “Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God will shine forth. Our God shall come, and shall not keep silent. A fire shall devour before Him, and it shall be very tempestuous all around Him. He shall call to the heavens above, and to the earth that He may judge His people. Gather together My saints to Me, those who have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice. Let the heavens declare His righteousness. For God Himself is Judge.”
Isaiah 66:12 “Thus says the Lord: Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles, like a flowing stream...So I will comfort you; and you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.”
Ezekiel 37:26 “I will make a covenant of peace with them (Israel), and it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; I will establish them and multiply them and I will set My sanctuary in their midst forevermore...The nations also shall know that I the Lord, sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forevermore.”
Ezekiel 36:35 “They will say, ‘This land that was desolate has become like the garden of Eden.”
Job 5:22-23 “You shall not be afraid of the beasts of the earth, for you shall have a covenant with the stones of the field; the beasts of the field shall be at peace with you.”
Isaiah 65:24-25 “It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear. The wolf and the lamb shall feed together; the lion shall eat straw like an ox...”
In the Millennium: ●The Holy Spirit is poured out on all flesh. (Joel 2:28, Isaiah 32:15, Ezekiel 39:29) ●The knowledge of the glory of the Lord covers the whole earth. (Habakkuk 2:14) ●There is no more war. (Isaiah 2:4) ●The whole earth is in singing and praise. (Isaiah 14:7) ●The nature of animals is changed (Isaiah 11:6-9) ●There is perfect environment. (Isaiah 30:26, 35:6-7) ●The deserts will bloom. (Isaiah 35:1)Longevity will be the norm. (Isaiah 65:22)
In the Millennium Satan all demons, fallen angels and evil spirits are cast away. (Matthew 13:41)
Details of the deal:
Note in the verse below that the deal of the ages includes many things most people have no idea about at all. Please note the wonder and magnificence of what is to come.
Philippians 3:21 “He will transform our lowly body that it may be confirmed to His glorious body.”
Note in the verse above that our resurrection bodies will be as supernatural as our Lord’s was after His resurrection. Note in the verse below that the “host” implies various forms of intelligent beings out there in the universe.
Isaiah 45:12 “I have made the earth and created man on it. It was I – My hands that stretched out the heavens, and all their host I have commanded.”
“Host”: Strong’s, H6633 “army” “service”, “intelligent beings.”
1 Corinthians 15:40-49 “There are also celestial bodies and terrestrial bodies, but the glory of the celestial is one and glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun and another glory of the moon and another glory of the stars, for one star differs from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown in corruption and raised in incorruption...it is sown a natural body and raised a spiritual body...We shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.”
Authority, ruling and reigning in eternity:
Note in the verses below that only those who meet the conditions qualify. They all relate to our future. As you read them allow them to expand your faith.
2 Timothy2:12 “If we endure, we shall reign with Him.”
Daniel 7:18 “The saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever.”
Daniel 7:27 “Then the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall obey and serve Him.”
Revelation 3:21 “To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.”
“Throne”: Strong’s H3678 “Kicce”. Meanings: Seat of honour, authority, tribunal, royalty, power.
Isaiah 9:7 “Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end.”
Romans 8:19, 21 “For the earnest expectation of the creation waits for the revealing of the sons of God...because the creation itself will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.”
There is much glory in these verses above, that we don’t have understanding of, this side of resurrection. But one thing is clear: Believers who meet the requirements will have authority over all sorts of things in the entire universe.
The principle of authority in eternity is much the same as it is now. Only when we wilfully submit into God’s authority can we have authority. Those who seek and claim authority now have none.
You need to have spiritual eyes to see God’s authority. When you do you will see it in everything from the instinct of a puppy to a king on a throne.
Rebellion to authority is rooted in the fall of both Lucifer and Adam. Their sin was merely a fruit of their deeper rebellion to God’s authority. Rebellion is contagious! When you reject God’s authority you are on a slippery slope, driven by the devil and his demons.
How did Adam and Eve break God’s first covenant (The Edenic covenant)? They were promised many blessings in the garden, but forbidden from eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which would have made them wise.
There was nothing wrong with the tree! The lesson was that wisdom outside of God is fallen, unredeemed and develops into sin.
We see the great, majestic final triumph of the ages wrapped up the spectacular last chapter of the Bible. Here the forbidden Tree of Life becomes the essential tree of our eternal wisdom. It is seen together with the Book of Life – eternal life for the believer.
Revelation 22:1-3 “He showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of its street and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits each tree yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse...”
Revelation 2:7 “He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give to eat from the tree of life which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.”
The universal church – the kingdom of God is headquartered in heaven. It operates as a theocracy under the King of kings. True believers in local churches are automatically members of the universal church. There are no divisions of any sort.
The end of the Christians life is ascension to the throne of God and ruling and reigning in authority on the earth,and in the universe.
“We are joint heirs of all things”. (Romans 8:17)
“We are partakers of His divine nature”. (2 Peter 1:4)
Ephesians 2:6 “We have been raised up together and made to sit together in the heavenly places in Messiah.”
Matthew 19:28 “Assuredly I say to you, that in the regeneration, when the Son of Man sits on the throne of His glory, you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.”
1 Corinthians 6:2 “Do you not know that the saints will judge the world?”
God’s glorious, majestic deal of the ages is on offer. Some of God’s covenant promises are unconditional. Rewards are not. God will keep His side of the deal, but your participation is conditional on your own doings and response.
God’s glorious deal of the ages involves your eternal “brightness,” and how bedecked in gold, silver and jewels (symbolism) you will be forever.
Your body soul and spirit will all be perfect. Your new home in heaven will be perfect and magnificent beyond imagination. Your new home in your new world – heaven will not be made with hands but with glory. (2 Corinthians 5:1)
Your character and personality will be pure and holy and forever sin-free. In fact all your sin will be forever forgotten. You will have no sickness, stress, anxiety, depression and the like. You will live in eternal, tangible peace, in perfect environment.
You will be commissioned with authority to co-reign and rule with Messiah and perform tasks in the entire universe in which you will be able to travel at the speed of thought. The next time you look up at the stars, just remember that all of that is part of God’s kingdom and were created for us all.
Your body will be set as ageless at perhaps around the equivalent of our 30 yrs old. (This is where DNA stops growing) Your body will be able to transition between a natural state and a supernatural state in an instant.
There is much more coming that is beyond our imagination! When you consider all these magnificent things, and then you look to the world trying to construct a world of peace, but full of sin – then you know why the world hates us!
1 Corinthians 2:9 “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
Our Lord of glory:
Our Messiah is the essence, origin and very definition of life, light and wisdom. He is distant yet so very close. He is transcendent, and everywhere and yet removed. He sees all, knows all, judges, loves and shows mercy. He destroys and builds up. He is pure holy power.
He looks at you and into you. He knows you better than you know you. He knows all about you. He knows your every thought. He chooses to love you, forgive, you, show you mercy, raise you up, enthrone you, and give you great wonderful life forever.
We must rule and reign in our lives now too, but it’s all far removed from what is to come.
Be circumspect, examine yourselves as you go, flee all sin, pursue holiness, seek the Lord always, draw near to Him, and you will be on the right path.
The Bible surprisingly says, “Be diligent to enter His rest.” (Hebrews 4:11)
Who is building you? Who do you really hear from? Who do you see and follow?
Psalm 97:10-11 “You who love the Lord, hate evil! He preserves the souls of His saints; He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked. Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.”
This evil world will soon be destroyed, as in the days of Noah. The ark came to rest on Mt. Ararat. The word means: “The curse reversed.” As believers we are now dead to the world and in peace.
What lies ahead for the world is world war, whining, wailing, whimpering and conflict, terror and disaster. What lies ahead for the believer is peace that surpasses understanding, victory, triumph, exaltation, grandeur, jubilation and much more!
Spiritual beauty attracts and inspires and causes desire and emulation.
I took the background picture at sunset, flying above the clouds in the Drakensberg Mountains in a chopper, and the sunrise picture in the Namib Desert and mixed them for effect.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 461: March 19th 2019
Deal of the Century:
These are words of life!
This is also a message to presidents, kings, leaders and all in authority.
Peace in the Middle East and the ancient related prophecies of this event is the subject.
The Trump / Kushner “Deal of the Century” will be released just after the Israeli election in April. At this stage no one except a few insiders, know what the deal contains. There’s been much speculation, which I’m not interested in.
We do know for a fact that the deal will include a wider Middle East peace plan between the Arab nations, the Palestinians and Israel. We do know that it would include some form of land for peace arrangement. The timing of this is all very important.
Due to the details of Bible prophecy, we do know that this “Deal of the Century” cannot be the Daniel 9:27 peace treaty / covenant between Israel and “the many.”
But there is plenty of evidence to presume that this will be a pre-cursor to Daniel 9:27.
With that in mind, I believe it is timely to look into the subject now, ahead of time.
For some odd reason, many Christians believe that this peace deal will be of God. Perhaps that’s because of the Trump / Kushner involvement. Yes, I believe God has and will still use President Trump for many things; just He used the Persian king – Cyrus.
But make no mistake, this deal is pure satanic, and will lead to the unveiling of the antichrist.
We all know Jarred Kushner had his offices in number 666 Fifth Avenue New York. This was where he sat working on the deal when it all started up. That is a bit more than a subliminal sign! No, he is NOT the antichrist!
Due to original words used, this is NOT the reviving of an existing peace treaty like the Oslo Accord and others. They are all long gone and stone dead. Their details are not relevant anymore either, meaning they would have to be totally re-negotiated.
What we need to watch for, when the deal is released, and if accepted by the parties, is the response to it. Will it lead to the big Daniel 9 covenant, which could come within months afterwards, perhaps on Rosh Hashanah in September!
Daniel 9:27 “Then he (antichrist) shall confirm a covenant with many for one week (of years); but in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wings of the abomination shall be one who makes desolate...” (See also Daniel 8:25, 11:21)
The timing is important, because so many other prophetic ducks are lined up in a row too!
Bear in mind that we are in strange days these days. So far there has been rejection of any sort of deal with Israel, by the Palestinians. But as, said, these days are of supernatural occurrences. Something will cause them to melt!
The deal will include aspects relating to Jerusalem or parts of it. It will also include something relating to the rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem.
The biggest issue of all; and the very reason for the start of the tribulation period and God’s fury and anger, is the subject of the rest of this edition – a peace covenant.
The coming Deal of the Century and what it leads to will be a stumbling block for Israel!
Leviticus 19:14 “...You shall put no stumbling block before the blind, but shall fear the Lord your God. I am the Lord.”
The pre-existing, eternal covenant:
Ezekiel 37:26-28 “I will make a covenant of peace with them (Israel) and it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: I will establish them and multiply them and set My sanctuary in their midst forevermore. My tabernacle will be with them; indeed I shall be their God and they shall be My people. The nation s also will know that I, the Lord sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forevermore.” (The following verses describe the Gog and Magog war, or WW111.)
Please note very well that God has an existing, eternal peace covenant with Israel.
Tragically, prophecy reveals that Israel will break God’s covenant and replace it with the doomed, death, peace covenant with the antichrist.
The violation of God’s covenant:
Exodus 23:32-33 “You shall make no covenant with them, nor with their gods. They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against Me. For if you serve their gods, (Islam) it will surely be a snare to you.”
Isaiah 28:15 “You have said, ‘We have made a covenant with death, and with hell we are in agreement. When the overflowing scourge (tribulation) passes through, it will not come to us, for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood we have hidden ourselves.’”
The verses above and below reveal, Israel’s greatest mistake.
Isaiah 28:18 “Your covenant with death will be annulled, and your agreement with Sheol (hell) will not stand; when the overflowing scourge passes through, then you will be trampled down by it.”
Amazingly, we see from the two verses above, that Israel will make a covenant with the antichrist, thinking it will spare them from God’s wrath in the tribulation. But what happens is just what is revealed in numerous other prophecies: The covenant with hell gets broken and they do get “trampled” by the tribulation period!
Here are more of the tragic covenant-breaking verses:
Hosea 8:1-3 “Set the trumpet to your mouth! He shall come like an eagle against the house of the Lord, because they have transgressed My covenant and rebelled against My law. Israel will cry to Me, ‘My God, we know You!’ Israel has cast off the good; the enemy will pursue him.”
Daniel 11:32 “Those who do wickedly against the covenant, he (antichrist) will corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong and carry out great exploits.”
So, God has an existing eternal covenant with Israel, which Kushner and co. Have totally ignored and or rejected in favour of their own!
To accommodate Jews being saved, now before the tribulation, they come into the New Covenant, as revealed below.
Jeremiah 31:31-33 “Behold the days are coming says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel...I will put My law in their minds and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God and they will be My people.”
Isaiah 54:10 “My kindness shall not depart from you (Israel), nor shall My covenant of peace be removed.”
Preparation for the world ruler:
The coming world-ruler needs a world that he can rule. Socialism unites people offering the united masses to the devil on a tarnished silver platter, with true biblical freedom destroyed.
It’s all a centrally orchestrated move. None of what is happening is by chance. The world will, very suddenly, and powerfully snap into socialist unity the instant the Bible and its believers are silenced, or removed by rapture.
Islam will be an instrument to bring chaos to the world ahead of the release of the antichrist.
Let’s have a look at a picture painted by some word meanings:
►The word “Islam” means “submission or surrender”
►The word “Palestinian” comes from the root Hebrew word, “Plishtim” which means “Invaders.”
►The word “Hamas” is a Hebrew word meaning “violence.”
►The word “Jihad” means “The exertion of power,” “struggle by the sword, “holy war”.
►Abraham means: “Father of multitudes”.
►Isaac means: “Laughter”.
►Jacob means: “Supplanter” or replacement. (Jacob became Israel)
►Israel means: “Prince with God.”
In these name meanings we see a pathway of hatred, revenge, war, violence and hostility from Islam. And we see a totally different character in the Jews.
The world sees Israel as the aggressor and the Palestinians (Islam) as the victim! The Bible shows the opposite.
God’s will for Israel:
God has brought Israel to their knees and to captivity many times, because of their sin and rebellion. But He has never rejected them and will complete and bring His plan to pass.
Even when Israel was in captivity, God kept them as His own, knowing that there would come a time when they would repent on a massive scale.
►The place of Israel and the Jews in a nation is that nation’s own insurance policy from God. Israel is the safeguard. This is profound and far reaching. Israel is their safeguard because God has placed His name, word and will in the heart of Israel. His major work with Israel is still ahead.
Here is God’s word relating to the Jews in dispersion amongst the nations:
Jeremiah 29:7 “Seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace you will have peace.”
Here is the contrast as revealed in the Islamic Quran:
“I charge you to immigrate and wage jihad for the sake of Allah.” (Hadith 2863, the sayings of Muhammad.) Quran (Sura 8:74) “Those who believed and emigrated and performed jihad for the sake of Allah, and those who gave you help are the true believers. They will receive forgiveness.”
The purpose of Islamic migration is for subversion. It is for jihad to achieve ultimate world domination and to bring in world Sharia law.
Of the 99 names of Allah, none are “Father.”
Number 10 = “The most proud and dominant.”
Number 61 = “The destroyer and inflictor of death.”
Number 91 = “The distressor.”
Here is nature of the Arab’s (Islam) as revealed in the Bible:
Genesis 27:40-41 “By your sword you shall live, and you shall serve your brother, and it shall come to pass when you become restless, that you shall break his yolk from your neck. So Esau hated Jacob (Israel)”
Genesis 25:30-34 “Esau (father of the Arabs) said to Jacob, ‘please feed me with that same red stew, for I am weary.” Therefore his was called Edom (meaning red). But Jacob said, ‘Sell me your birthright today’...so he sold him his birthright...Thus Esau hated (rejected) his birthright.’”
The Deal of the Century will be a work to restore at least part of Esau’s birthright, which was sold to Jacob (Israel) in a legal transaction, confirmed by God’s covenant!
Right now, the world and its media puppets of their puppet master, Satan, can’t see through their deep, dark veil of blindness!
God’s will for Israel is to stand firm and separate from the world. The Deal of the Century will want to draw Israel fully into the world and separate them from God! Remember that Islam is forever advancing. It wants world domination and in particular domination of Israel.
The Deal of the Century will mobilise and facilitate Israel to become a slave of the world and its doomed peace.
God’s deal and the world’s deal:
Will the Deal of the Century affect any of the following, and what are the central issues within God’s covenant promise to Israel?
- God’s deal is eternal and must never be broken.
- God’s deal is to bring peace to Israel, through Messiah.
- God’s deal includes the land of Israel, its borders, the city of Jerusalem and the Jewish people.
- God’s deal is to prepare Israel to take salvation to the world.
Exodus 34:11-14 “Observe what I command you this day. Behold I am driving out from before you the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite. Take heed to yourself, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you are going, lest it be a snare in your midst. You shall destroy their altars, break their sacred pillars and cut down their wooden images, for you shall worship no other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous is a jealous God.”
In the verse above, we see God’s command to drive out various nations; some are the originators of the Palestinian people today. The instruction of God is not to make any sort of covenant with them!
Isaiah 9:16 “The leaders of this people (Philistines – modern Palestinians) cause them to err, and those who are led by them are destroyed.”
The deal will divide the land:
To appease and please the devil and his hordes, The Deal of the Century will have to include dividing some sections of the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem.
This does NOT bring peace but war and judgement!
Joel 3:2 “I will gather all nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat; I will enter into judgement with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land.”
Daniel 11:39 “Thus he (antichrist) shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god (Satan), which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory and he shall cause them to rule over many and divide the land for gain.”
Deuteronomy 27:17 “Cursed is the one who moves his neighbour’s landmark. And all the people say, amen!”
Leaders of the world:
If you are a leader of any sort in any nation, please read the following verses and note that they are addressed to you. Note and understand the severity of God upon you, and please note that you will pay for your choices, especially, but not exclusively, relating to Israel.
Job 12:24-25 “He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, and makes them wander in a pathless wilderness. They grope in the dark without the light; he makes then stagger like a drunken man.”
Revelation 20:12-15 “I saw the dead small and great, standing before God and books were opened, and another book was opened which is the Lamb’s Book of Life, and the dead were judged according to their works, by the things that were written in the books...And anyone not found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.”
Isaiah 14:9 “Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming. It stirs up the dead for you. All the chiefs of the earth it has raised up from their thrones and all the kings of the nations.”
Isaiah 24:21 “It shall come to pass in that day that the Lord will punish on high the host of the exalted ones, and on the earth the kings of the earth.”
Jeremiah 50:41-42 “Behold, a people shall come from the north, and a great nation and many kings shall be raised up from the ends of the earth. They shall hold the bow and lance; they are cruel and shall show no mercy. Their voice shall roar like the sea; they shall ride on horses set in array, like a man of battle, against you O daughter of Babylon.”
Lamentations 4:12-14 “The kings of the earth and all the inhabitants of the world, would not have believed that the adversary and the enemy could enter the gates of Jerusalem – because of the sins of her prophets and the iniquities of her priests, who shed in her midst the blood of the just. They wandered blind in the streets...”
Zechariah 12:2-3 “Behold I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem and it will happen in that day, that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples. All who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.”
Political leaders of the world, here is the crown and pinnacle of your creation and your doings. You are the cause of this:
Isaiah 24: 4-6 “The earth mourns and fades away; the world languishes and fades away. The haughty people of the earth languish. The earth is also defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinances, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore the curse has devoured the earth, and those who dwell in it are desolate...”
Part of the need for a Jewish state is for them to have a secure place away from anti-Semitism and domination by Islam, and the ways of the world.
Isaiah 51:18 “There is no one to guide her among all the sons she has brought forth; nor is there any who takes her by the hand among all the sons she has brought up.”
The constitution of a nation is an insight into its foundation. Here are two real examples of the opening preamble of two of them: ●“In submission to Almighty God, we declare that...” ●“We the people declare that...”
It’s interesting that most nations that have had a godly national constitution of some sort, have historically been pro-Israel, and the others not. It all has spiritual roots!
Right now, before it all begins, true Christians are God’s peace offering to Israel!
I hope you see why the peace of Jerusalem is only possible with the Prince of Peace resident and not the Peace deal of the Century!
The peace Deal of the Century is way to war, wrath, tribulation and judgement.
This is the end of man’s best efforts, -all cursed just like Adam’s best effort!
►I and The Prophetic Scroll, again affirm our commitment to stand with and for Israel in these dangerous days ahead.
Isaiah 49:3 “He said to me, ‘You are My servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.’”
Amos 9:15 “I will plant them (Jews) in their land, and they shall no longer be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord your God.”
Ezekiel 13:18 “...Will you hunt the souls of My people and keep yourselves alive?”
I took this picture of an immature crowned eagle in a forest nearby, and mixed it with a baobab tree.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 460: March 12th 2019
Disorder out of chaos
These are words of life!
“Ordo ab chao” is Latin for “Order out of Chaos.” It is an ancient occult slogan used by many world empires to signify their conquest of the world. It is the slogan of 33rd degree Free-Masons. This was a slogan used by Hitler. He used it as a motto for his plan to bring about an Aryan Nazi-ruled millennium of world peace with no Jews.
The emblem, below, is interesting. It incorporates the double-headed eagle, another ancient occult symbol used to signify world domination. It originated in Babylonian pagan worship, where it first appeared with a twisted Swastika at its centre, thousands of years ago.
Nazi Germany used the double-headed eagle as the symbol of their Third Reich. It is also common in Catholic heraldry. It was used in the era of the Inquisitions.
It is still used today in Russia, the Catholic church, Islam, Free Masonry and others with a world-domination bent.
The double-headed eagle (above) represents the coming together of political and spiritual powers, and the coming together of God and Satan and sometimes, church and state.
Janus is another two-faced demon god of some 200 years BC. The name means “archway” or “gateway” He symbolises deception and the dual nature of good and evil, together as one. Other titles for this god include, “The earl of hell,” and “The god of chaos.”
The ‘archway’ or ‘gateway’ refers to the gateway into a new world order of new beginnings. Entrance to this new world comes on the wings of chaos and mixture of good and evil. Janus is the origin of “January” the entrance or gateway to a new year.
The “order out of chaos” principle is that when the world is in chaos, people will capitulate and clamour for order, which elite, one-world organisations will then use to bring about control on a grand scale. Some of them are believed to be behind-the-scenes creators of the chaos itself.
In world of war and general chaos people give up, thinking they have nothing left to lose.
The phrase is however, incorrectly named. It should be “disorder out of chaos,” because the coming chaos will produce the biggest disorder the world has ever seen, through ●the wrath of God, ●the wrath of Satan, ●the wrath of man and ●the wrath of nature, all running simultaneously!
There is strength and power in unity but in the disorder of disunity and division there is weakness and an easy prey.
The truth of the matter is that we only get true order out of the chaos through the cross of Calvary and nothing else. It is the exclusive, godly order-creator through the chaos of crucifixion. Of course those who reject the cross will have total disorder and extreme, eternal chaos!
When Hitler set off to kill the Jews in the Holocaust, his worshippers cried, “Heil Hitler”, as they did the satanic Aryan salute - another Babylonian practise. Today the blind masses of the world are proclaiming, “Heil, New World Order of peace.” Soon they will screech, “Heil, the (false) Christ and his prophet.”
The behind-the-scenes spirits of evil are already at work creating chaos. Out of that will come God’s fury, wrath judgement, fiery destruction and every sort of upheaval imaginable!
Then, after God’s devouring judgement will come true, holy order, calm, peace, safety and all things of God in His exclusive new world order . The Kingdom of God will be a world of order, purity, beauty, serenity, tranquillity, harmony and placidity.
There will be no order out of chaos for the world.
Order out of chaos is simply another term for the devils method of control and domination.
How many times have you heard it said that if only Adam had not sinned, we would be in a perfect world? I’ve heard it a thousand times. Well, God is going to destroy Adam’s sin created world, and the curse he produced and create a perfect world! It’s coming soon.
Hebrews 1:10-12 “...The foundation of the earth and the heavens are the work of Your hands; they will perish, but You will remain; and they will all grow old like a garment. Like a cloak You will fold them up, and they will be changed...”
From God’s order, to the world’s disorder, to destruction, to God’s new order. That's the path!
What on earth is going on and on?
We are seeing the blending of all things satanic. Many of these things are synthesising, amalgamating, integrating, and merging together at the same time worldwide. And the media gives it all a voice, like a repulsive orchestra of discord, led by a deranged conductor!
The way of God for our personal lives, in the face of these things, is to disconnect, separate, un-mix and disharmonise. Yes of course, “where sin abounds grace does much more abound”, which creates great evangelism opportunity.
Deception and disinformation are rampant and shrouded in what seems right, but is untruth. Concealed and camouflaged, the father of lies has laid a million ambushes for the unsuspecting and spiritually blind. Today there is a conspiracy of trickery and treachery, of collusion and complicity. We must know it, see it, and avoid it!
The liberal left and its voice have created delusions of their own grandeur and importance – a fool’s paradise of misinformation, all flying in the face of the living of God. The liberal left are finally revealing their true colours – the colour of hell.
The mass-media creates a new godless world and then they measure society by their new evil ways.
The devolution of morality and the constant attack on the order of God, is in itself proof of disorder on the march, as the media ridicules the things of God and then marginalises them, and then removes them! They think by removing God from society, they have removed God. Do they have a surprise coming or what!
So, as God is removed more and more from society, the god of the world floods in with more and more of his evil fruits, works and ways. It is all speeding up.
The problem is that when you let the genie out of the bottle, you can’t put it back in. When you shake out a feather pillow in a hurricane, you can’t get all the feathers back again.
Only grand-scale national repentance will save this world, and prophecy shows that this proud world will not repent before judgement strikes.
►The message to individuals of the unsaved world is: Wake up fast, your time is running out. Repent, while you have time and be converted. The love of and grace of God is available now, but know this:
Genesis 6:3 “The Spirit of God will not strive with man forever.”
Psalm 40:4 “Blessed is the man who makes the Lord His trust and does not respect the proud, nor such as turn away from the Lord.”
Isaiah 26:2-3 “Open the gates that the righteous nation which keeps the truth may enter in. You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.”
Israel and the world:
I have warned for years of the advance of anti-Semitism. (I became aware of its spiritual force back in the 1970’s.) It is now in overdrive! Suddenly the world is awakening to anti-Semitism, with many on both sides of the fence.
When you kick God out of society, you are not left with a vacuum. Satan takes that place. The US Democrats and the British Labour Party cast down God’s word long ago. Now the fruits are emerging. They try to deny it all, but their god’s godless fruits keep manifesting!
The US Democratic Party and the British Labour Party have tagged themselves with anti-Semitism. In trying to trap others in this evil, they have shot themselves in the foot, with the majority of the population and with God! They will fall into a big ditch!
Psalm 57:6 “They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down; they have dug a pit before me. Into the midst of it they themselves have fallen.” (Psalm 7:15, 35:8, 141:10)
Europe has been in this evil boat for a long time already, but it is worsening fast.
It’s interesting to me that anti-Semitism is a characteristic of socialism, and seldom the free-market systems of the world. The spirits are arising!
All political parties, worldwide with a left wing socialist and anti-Semitic bent are inviting their own chaotic destruction to come in. Then Satan’s attempted order and control will follow and fail, and then God’s destruction of the whole lot will be here.
Why would Satan be so consumed and obsessed with wiping out the Jews, especially if God is finished with them as replacement theology presumes? It’s because God’s big purpose for them still lies ahead.
If God had chosen the Zulu’s to bring salvation to the world, they would be the target of the devil just like the Jews! Satan hates and opposes God’s choice.
The fact that the Jews have never been able to assimilate into the world (by God’s command) is further proof of God’s distinct plan and call upon them.
Ezekiel 11:16 “Thus says the Lord God: “Although I have cast them far off among the Gentiles and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet I shall be a little sanctuary for them in the countries where they have gone.” (No assimilation possible)
Hosea 1:10 “Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea which cannot be measured or numbered. And it shall come to pass in the place where it was said to them, ‘You are not My people,’ there it shall be said to them, ‘you are the sons of the living God.”
Isaiah 49:8...”I will preserve you (Israel) and give you as a covenant to the people to restore the earth.”
If you want to know what is very important from a spiritual, doctrinal point of view, just look at what Satan constantly attacks and what the mass-media always attacks!
Hitler failed his master. He failed to bring order out of chaos - a new one-world. The master of evil will try again and again until the master is masterfully cast into hell with all his slaves.
A true new world order of true peace can only come about with sin removed. Not one person or institution of this world has the ability to remove sin.
►Sin always advances aggressively, until it meets the cross. Holiness rests in risen glory, righteousness and peace.
Egypt, Babylon, Rome, the Catholics, the Nazis, the Muslims and the new world order crowd can’t create true holiness and purity. They’re all dead in their sins.
Islam believes that their coming messiah, the Mahdi will be the “perfect human being.” That ring a bell! Sounds like Hitler’s “perfect” Aryan man, and the Catholic’s “perfect” pope!
True Christians are perfect in the spirit-man and as such can be used by God to spread salvation to the world. Jews saved in the tribulation will also have God’s perfection in them in some form, as they take the gospel to the world in the tribulation.
Right now we are to recognise the importance of God’s work with the Jews. True Christians are to be the ones who “Comfort My people says the Lord.” True Christians should be the ones “making the Jews jealous” and taking the “gospel to the Jew first.”
But here is the tragic reality:
Isaiah 51:18 “There is no one to guide her among all the sons she has brought forth; nor is there any who takes her by the hand among all the sons she has brought up.”
►If you remove God from society there is no godly value to life. Abortion is then just mechanical, so is euthanasia. Sex is anything your lusts desire. God’s word on Israel, Jerusalem and the coming salvation of the Jews then amounts to nothing. No wonder Satan hates the Bible!
Powerful curses and judgements:
The funny thing is that the world will be working for world peace just as God removes peace from the earth and begins to pour out destruction. (Revelation 6:4)
If the world could talk, now would be a good time for it to say – OOPS!
So, world, you think you can bring in order? Here is your coming disorder:
Jeremiah 25:31-33 “A noise will come to the ends of the earth, for the Lord has a controversy with the nations; He will plead His case with all flesh. He will give those who are wicked to the sword. Behold disaster shall go forth from nation to nation and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the farthest parts of the earth. On that day, the slain of the Lord shall be from one end of the earth even to the other...”
Nahum 1:6 “Who can stand before His indignation, and who can endure the fierceness of His anger? His fury will be poured out like fire”.
Nahum 1:8 “Darkness will pursue His enemies”.
Nahum 1:2 “The Lord will take vengeance on His adversaries. He reserves His wrath for His enemies.”
Romans 3:5 “Is God unjust who inflicts wrath? - Certainly not!”
Part of the big reason for the judgments of the tribulation period is due to the world’s treatment of Israel and rejection of God’s promises to them. Israel will also bear some guilt for her rebellion and for what I will deal with in the next edition!
But know this all you anti-Semites and replacement theologians: When you come against Gods plans for Israel you are sticking your cursed finger in His eye! (Zechariah 2:8)
Deuteronomy 30:7 “Also the Lord God will put all these curses on your enemies and on those who hate you (Israel) and persecuted you.”
Isaiah 34:5 “For My sword shall be bathed in heaven; indeed it shall come down on Edom (Includes modern day Palestinians), and on the people of My curse for judgement.”
Even right now as you read these very words, there is a deprogramming on the go. It is designed to de-link you from the living God and His word. There is a battle on the go now to make you spiritually deaf and blind and to kill your conscience.
The entire thrust of all the world’s learning agencies is towards godless re-education.
The US Democratic Party is to strike “So help me God” from the oath taken in front of the House of Representatives. That will have numerous negative spiritual consequences!
When God is removed, peace is created between you and sin and the god of sin. This is the ultimate desire of Satan – it is to make you like a passive lump of wobbly jelly in his hands. It is all designed to ultimately bring about control of the wobbly world.
Once you have had your conscience seared, and been desensitised, you are psychopath in the making. Then everything becomes tolerable and permissible. I once heard an idiot minister say, ‘we must make the gospel tolerable and relevant to society’s norms today’! – Hogwash, you blind fool!
The gospel is full of numerous glorious intolerances!
Everyone will know the full truth! The instant each person steps into eternity, spiritually blind and ignorant eyes will open – too late for the unsaved. For the majority it will be the most shocking experience of their lives ever! What an incredible shock the truth will be to so many, as they see that it was right in front of them all their lives, and they rejected it.
►Spiritual ignorance blinds even great intellects! (1 Corinthians 3:19-25, Isaiah 29:14)
When the mind has spiritually leprosy, your eyes, ears and intellect are useless. Your god is the spirit of the world – the spirit of error and deception - and he is your controller!
The cost of sin and its blindness, and its error is enormous, with eternal effects.
Isaiah 2:12 “For the day of the Lord shall bring down everything proud and lofty and everything lifted up shall be brought low.”
Disorder is coming out of chaos! It will all come very soon and very suddenly!
When we know these things we are strengthened and untied and filled even more with the Spirit of the living God.
Don’t be an idiot in these dangerous days! There are dangers in not responding to God:
Isaiah 66:4 “I will choose their delusions, and bring their fear upon them, because when I called no one answered, when I spoke they did not hear; but they did evil before My eyes and chose that in which I do not delight.”
Remember my verse for the year: “When you forsake the word of God, you praise the wicked”! (Proverbs 28:4) How profoundly relevant to these things!
I took these pictures in the Naukluft Mountains in the Namib Desert and at Kubu Island Botswana.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 459: March 5th 2019
The final conflict:
As you read this edition please remember my verse for the year: Proverbs 28:4 “Those who forsake the word will praise the wicked!” It applies deeply and completely.
We see it being manifest everywhere!
These are words of life.
The final countdown and conflict is underway. It will intensify dramatically, culminating in the calamitous final seven-year tribulation period. We are almost there.
Many nations are having elections within the next few months. Many nations are facing a clash and conflict between the liberal left, the right, and the moderate middle. Many reading these very words will decide for a satanic system and some for a godly system.
My aim in this edition is to influence as many as possible towards a godly choice.
The end-time system:
The Bible clearly reveals the terrible system of one-world, socialist control in the end days. It will fully manifest in the tribulation period where it will meet its final destruction. But these things are brewing and developing now.
Forewarned is forearmed!
Here is the world’s system of control in the end times:
Isaiah 10:13-14 “By the strength of my hand (antichrist), I have done it. I have removed the boundaries of the people and have robbed their treasuries...My hand has found like a nest the riches of the people, and as one gathers eggs that are left. I have gathered all the earth, and there was no one who moved his wing, nor opened his mouth with even a peep.”
Revelation 17:13 “These were of one mind and they will give their power and authority to the beast.”
So, here we see a system of control which includes economic socialism, control of freedom of speech and even control of movement or travel, influencing commerce and industry. This will be the system of the tribulation period, especially the latter half.
The problem is that very few people know the problem or can see it. ●The heart of man is desperately wicked. ●He is sin-filled. ●He loves evil. ●He hates the truth. ●He loves darkness and hates the light. ●His mind has been blinded. ●God has deluded them. (Jeremiah 17:9, Mark 7:21, John 3:19, John 3:20, Luke 11:35, 2 Thessalonians 2:10-11, 2 Corinthians 4:4.
There are two clear distinct sources of wisdom revealed in the Bible. The one is from below and the other from above. (James 3:17-18) There is no neutrality.
Malachi 2:17 “You have wearied the Lord with your words saying ‘Everyone who does evil is good in the sight of the Lord, and He delights in them.” (Isaiah 5:20)
Habakkuk 1:4 “The wicked surround the righteous, therefore perverse judgement proceeds.” (Proverbs 28:28, Proverbs 29:2)
The character of Satan is revealed. It is to kill, steal, destroy and lie. (John 10:10, John 8:44) These traits are evident in various forms, in all that is outside of the cross. It is seen in political systems.
Abortion and anti-Semitism:
What has the one got to do with the other, you ask? Plenty – read on!
Why is abortion becoming such a favoured thrust of the liberal left in these days? It is the same reason that everything else the Bible declares as godly, is under attack. They hate God and all His ways, which includes the fact that life, begins at conception.
God’s plan for Israel is to see them return to the land in blindness, and then to bring spiritual sight and life to them, and then for them to take that life to world, as His evangelists. God’s plan for Israel in His word, is their “birth certificate.” (Isaiah 42:16, Isaiah 29:18 Micah 7:8-9,)
Not very long ago Israel was a foetus, and today is a foetus again!
Isaiah 66:8 “...Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Shall a nation (Israel) be born at once? As soon as Zion travailed, she gave birth to her children.”
Israel was born as a nation in one day in May 1948. She was born just after Satan’s attempted abortion that was the Holocaust of WW11.
Dr. Evil Devil, the abortionist, tries to kill God’s plan to bring life to the world, even while in the womb of incubation. There is nothing new about this.
Israel is again a foetus, and awaits spiritual birth, to fulfil God’s plan of bringing salvation to the world. (Ezekiel 37:14) Anti-Semitism is the new attempted abortion. WW111 and the tribulation period will be a much more severe abortion attempt, but it will fail again.
The end of anti-Semitism is war with Israel and her God - never a clever move! The attempted abortion of the Jews in Hitler’s Holocaust brought about prophetic, poetic justice.
The funny thing is that Israel had the last laugh after the abortion attempt failed to destroy the Jews. It saw Israel born as a nation in one day, just after WW11 ended.
Again, the funny thing for all those babies created by God, and born to die in abortion, is that they will have the last laugh too! Logic says that the great majority of women who have abortions would not be believers, and therefore destined for hell, where they will meet up with Hitler.
Their murdered child (yes abortion is murder) is innocent and automatically sent to heaven. There, untold millions of them will be laughing, and dancing forever, with great joy.
I got an email from a friend on this subject a few days ago. She said, “These innocent babies are received into an awaiting Parent’s arms!”
Anti-Semitism is of the spirit as abortion. Rage against the Jews, and rage against the unborn, rage against the living God! “Why do the nations rage and take counsel together against the Lord and His anointed saying let us break their bonds (of truth). He who sits in the heavens shall laugh. He shall hold them in derision and pour wrath upon them.” (Psalm 2:1-4)
The living dead murdering the alive unto God try to absolve and dissolve their guilt, because duped society and the legislation of the nation, says it’s all okay with us.
Here is a surprising end-time verse, speaking of Palestinian expansionism into Israel, linking it with their cruelty in the form of murdering the unborn:
Amos 1:13 “To the people of Ammon (Palestinians today), I will not turn away its punishment, because they ripped open the women with child in Gilead, that they might enlarge their territory.”
►Bible verses dealing with and abortion:
Genesis 1:27, Deuteronomy 24:16, Exodus 4:11, Exodus 20:1, 13, Psalm 22:10, Psalm 100:3, Psalm 127:3, Psalm 139:13-16, Job 31:15, Isaiah 49:15, Isaiah 64:8 44:24, Jeremiah 1:15, Luke 1:41-44, Galatians 1:15, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Satan has deliberately turned democracy into a tool of his trade. He has caused it to mutate into a beast. When you remove God from society, an osmosis-like metamorphosis takes place. Satan gets soaked and saturated into the fabric of society.
Then people vote and think what they come up with is right and true! Democracy only works in a nation under God.
Satan, the vote-master wants you! At the end of the day, he uses then kills his slaves.
The state as the representative of the world-system, with God removed, then becomes a god to the masses. Likewise, culture and tradition become gods.
The failure of democracy is that it has no truth in and of itself. Its truth is what the majority say it is. It’s variable and always changes.
The masses as a defined entity, receive an illegitimate, stolen authority. They replace God with themselves. They are never right!
The quantity of the people in agreement is important in democracy. The more there are the more influential they become, no matter how wrong.
The one-world organisations are hell bent on creating a one-world government of control. To achieve it, they use consent or conquest. Consent is their method with the ignorant masses. Where that won’t work conquest will be their final solution, but God’s final solution will be their final end!
Socialism’s gigantic failure:
The central thrust behind socialism in all its forms, is the creation of equality.
Centralised control of the masses is needed in socialism. To control someone you must make them subservient and defenceless. You must make them godless puppets.
Socialism’s primary method is by command economics. They must silence and then take over the free-press, replacing it with centrally controlled information. They must destroy freedom.
To create equality they must redistribute wealth.
Socialism kills initiative and incentive to profit, scorns the rich and favours the poor.
Poverty is a curse. Enriching the poor always leaves them poor with benefits to no one!
The job of the state is to protect freedom, not to create equality. The rich must be free to get rich and the poor must be free to be poor. Helping the poor is a virtue, but always on a voluntary basis. Our Lord said: “The poor you will have you always.” (Mark 14:7)
Equality is unfair, because people are not equal. Some are born entrepreneurs, some are born brilliant whizz-kids, some are born creative, some have a high IQ and others not. Some have success built into their DNA and others not. God has made us all different.
Satan hates that because it’s God’s way, and tries to destroy it and force equality on everyone.
Equality robs people of their true intrinsic value and makes them dumb, slaves of the state.
Socialism violates the biblical law of sowing and reaping.
Christians will not be equal for all eternity. We will have a foundation that is universally equal – the cross. But we will be as different as the stars are from each other. (1 Corinthians 15:41)
The people of the world are blind to these truths. They are ●blind to God, ●blind to His word, and ●blind to the cross of Calvary! – Three times blind! Talk about thickly blind!
“Three blind mice...see how they run, right into the wall!”
There was not one liberal lefty in the Lords army of workers, disciples and close followers, Old Covenant and New! That should tell you something!
The free market system is revealed in the Bible. (Matthew 25:14-30) Here, ten talents (money), five talents, and one talent are distributed. The first two doubled their talents through work or investment and were praised and rewarded.
The last person, who had only one talent, hid it until the master returned. It was taken away from him and given to the one with ten talents! He was condemned and told that the least he could have done was invested it.
Interestingly this one talent was given to the one with ten. That should open many eyes. The world’s way is to give to those who have nothing or little. But bear in mind that there is always a reason for poverty. It is almost always a spiritual reason. So giving to someone who is unable to do much with it is counterproductive.
The free market principle is not the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer. It is the rich get richer and the poor getting richer.
The answer of course is the distribution of the knowledge of God into society. This creates a strong nation under God.
Again, giving to the poor and helping them on a personal level is God ordained and always a good thing, but what I’m talking about here is a national, controlled system.
The removal of God’s principles from society opens people for the evil and the wickedness in their own heart to manifest unhindered. (Jeremiah 17:9) Removing God removes restraint and puts the masses in terrible agreement! (Hosea 4:1-2) ●Please read this profoundly important scripture 10 times over!
The values of hell arise and take root on the elimination of the values of God’s word. New, wicked, behaviour and actions always arises on revolutionary theory, which must first be disguised and then dispensed to the masses by the media.
Man’s conscience is inextricable linked to his belief system, and is very important in creating his world. His conscience decides what he deems to be acceptable. A seared conscience is immediately filled with Satan’s no-conscience. Doom is just down the road.
Man left to his own devices, with God removed from society, becomes a savage.
The world doesn’t want you to see its god for who he is. If you can’t see the true God because He has been removed from society, you can’t see the world’s god either. All you see is Satan’s dark light. “He comes as an angel of light” - to the fool the world. (2 Corinthians 11:14)
The press have moved beyond being pure news reporters, and are now opinion makers, propaganda dictators, and have become Satan’s collective organiser, planner and agent.
You can manipulate the truth for the ignorant masses with volume, balloons and bright flashing lights and then repeat the process over and over until they believe.
Internationalism, globalism and socialism (all linked) brings everyone down to the lowest common denominator. God brings us to the highest value and seats us in heavenly places, holy and pure.
The world can try as it may to create a new world order of peace. It can use the free market system, democracy, theocracy, socialism, communism, capitalism, tyranny or anything it likes, but it can’t get rid of sin! It is forever doomed to be eternally united with sin.
When you “find your life in the world you will lose it.” (Matthew 10:39)
I would never interfere in a person’s personal political choices, but it’s time to spell out clearly what the issues and consequences are, which is what I have done here in a limited way.
You must know that politics is not going to save the world. You must shine like a light in the world, but keep your distance too! Be aware that the entire system is doomed and on short-notice.
►God has and will still use President Trump for His purposes, but don’t put all your trusted eggs in that basket! The US Democratic Party has changed its face to match its heart. It is a seed-bed of evil, these days. The Labour Party in the UK is fast going off the rails, as it identifies with the evil plague of anti-Semitism. Imagine being so stupid as to be willingly tagged with that!
The fruits should speak volumes as they are seen in political parties all around the world. These issues are no longer party political differences. They are spiritual. That is not going to change. It will surface more and more. You must decide which spirit you are going to support!
We are not called to reform the world. We are called to die to it, and come out of it. (2 Corinthians 6:17, Galatians 6:14) Our world is not of this world. Our world is perfect and sin free. It is called “The Kingdom of God.” We are called to come out of because it is soon going to be destroyed in judgement – just like Lot had to get out.
Then God will create a new world order called the Millennium, built on bricks of purity.
The true Christian has “peace that surpasses understanding”! (Philippians 4:7) “There is no peace for the wicked.” (Isaiah 48:22) Our future is peace, theirs is torment!
We are to judge ourselves now so that we will not be judged or condemned with this world.
“The whole world lies under the power of the evil one.” (1 John 5:19) “Satan deceives the whole world.” Revelation 12:9
We as believers live in two worlds. We are to influence the kingdom of the world as best we can, but never join it. We are above it now and forever! The kingdom of God is within you, and the kingdom of the world is without you and that’s the way it is.
The mission and message to the world from the ambassadors for Messiah is: “Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Matthew 3:2, 4:17)
Decide your fate now:
John 9:4 “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.”
Isaiah 55:6 “Seek the Lord while He may be found.”
John 12:35-36 “A little while longer the light is with you. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you. He who walks in darkness does not know where he is going. While you have the light, believe in the light...”
Amos 9:11 “Behold the days are coming says the Lord God, that I will send a famine on the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord.”
Psalm 36:9 “In your light we see light.”
Job 38:15 “From the wicked their light is withheld...”
John 18:37 “...Everyone of the truth hears my voice.”
The final conflict is underway. Satan believes that anyone who opposes him is the enemy and true villain. This is the why the battle between godly right and satanic wrong will never end until God’s judgment.
Satan, soon to infiltrate the antichrist, needs you. He will feign love for you, as a charm offensive, to get your support, for his evil purposes, but he truly hates you. He will use you as his useful idiot and then kill you.
Beware of any political system that ridicules the things of God rather than protects them. Beware of any that casts down the things of God.
God loves you supremely. He died for you. He gave you His own word filled with numerous glorious promises. How wonderful that is! But to some people, they want to kill you for that!
“Messiah is in us – the hope of glory.” So, it is the crucified and risen Lord in us that makes us untouchable by the devil and his world, unless we let him in.
The cross in me is the barrier, an immovable rock, an un-crossable gulf. Rejoice in the Lord and again I say – rejoice!
I took the camel thorn tree picture in the Namib Desert, removed the colour and gave it some texture. I took the background picture of the side of an old rusty steam engine, as well as the flower and mixed them all, for effect.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 458: February 26th 2019
What’s coming next?
There are so many things all ready to roll! How much longer can it be before the great drama goes into high gear? We don’t know exactly when the rapture will be, but the time clock is ticking away! The alarm is sounding, great glory is coming, and so is the theatre of tears and tragedy.
Our days are all numbered!
In this edition, I will look at some of the indicators and scenarios. No, I’m not setting a date – just looking and watching as we are commanded to do. We are to know the season, and to know the time. We are to watch and pray and make sure that we are not caught off guard.
The kingdom of this world is on very short notice. Its doom has been proclaimed by our Lord in hundreds of passages of scripture. A new dispensation – the tribulation of wrath is around the corner and then, the Millennium of world peace.
Above all, we are to be ready!
Our Lord is:
Lord, Lamb, Lion, Servant, Man, Eagle, Shepherd, Saviour, Star, Sun, Son, King, Priest, Prince, Prophet, Healer, Bread, Rock, Cornerstone, Door, Dove, Pearl, Rose, Tree, Counsellor, Advocate, Judge, He is the way the truth and the life, the first and last – and much more!
Each of these titles above speaks of specific characteristics of our Lord.
As He approaches, vultures gather around, for their great feast of the dead. (Matthew 24:28)
The wheat and the tares ripen under the same sun. The wheat will meet the Son of Righteousness and the tares the son of darkness. Their destinations are worlds apart.
Many don’t know they’re in the dark because it’s dark. They can only see their darkness in the light.
Ephesians 5:13 “Whatever makes manifest is light.”
A light on a hill is visible to all, but if society puts that light out, they create their darkness! (Matthew 5:14) They soon begin to love the darkness and become enemies of the light.
In all of these things the Spirit of God is right there close at hand – a helping hand of guidance. In fact you can take all these end-time pressures and let them work great eternal glory for you.
The full truth is frightening for the lost. For the saved, truth is welcoming deep peace and rest.
The set of the stage:
Next on the biblical agenda of prophetic things to come is:
- The Isaiah 17 Damascus war.
- The Ezekiel 38 & 39 war of Gog and Magog (Russia, Iran).
- The Trump / Kushner “deal of the century.” This is the peace initiative for Israel and the Middle East. It looks set for released just after the Israeli election in April.
It will not be the Daniel 9:27 peace agreement. It probably will be the preliminary event that leads to the big one.
There are many peripheral prophetic issues and developments along the way, but all have a lesser degree of importance than these three mentioned above. There are also many totally false prophetic presumptions, which we need not be concerned about at all.
When we see the convergence of these prophetic events, we know the real biggie is about to occur. This is the rapture of the church and salvation then going to the Jews.
Regular readers know that I have my eye on Rosh Hashanah / Feast of Trumpets this year. At this stage, it’s too early to put more than an eye on it. We will see as we go – won’t we?
It is most important who you receive from, and their track record in prophecy. Do your own homework well!
A big sign:
We are now just beyond the 70-year period since the birth of the nation of Israel in 1948. It is also the closing of the 70th jubilee of Daniel’s 70-weeks prophecy. There are many other significant 70-year indicators as well.
I don’t want to get into all the different views, calendars and dates. What I have noted from all of them is that they are very close. Some differ by a few months and some by a year or so. All in all, the grand conclusion is - we are at the very door!
70 is a biblical number of significance. It is the number of Jerusalem. It is the number of judgement. It is the number of tribes that formed Israel. The world was repopulated from a root of 70 nations after the flood. It is the number of disciples our Lord sent out.
In Hebrew, the word for “wine” is “yayin.” It has the gematria of 70. Hebrew scholars say: “We take wine when we want to ascend from one spiritual level to another.” Wine is used at the beginning and end of Shabbat. Our Lord spoke of His blood being the wine of salvation.
At a Hebrew wedding, wine is dispensed. The first miracle our Lord performed was at a wedding, which was the turning of water into wine. The wedding feast takes place in heaven right after the rapture of the church.
Interestingly the Hebrew letter Ayin (Y) which means 70, can also be rendered according to the spelling of its Hebrew letters. This spells “Eye.” It is also a reference to spiritual sight.
Israel spent 70 years in captivity in Babylon because of her rebellion to God. Babylon is a type of the world-system, as is Egypt, Sodom and others. Here, 70 is used in association with judgement.
Israel is now 70 years old as an independent nation in the world (Babylon).
Jeremiah 29:10-12 “Thus says the Lord: After 70 years are completed at Babylon, I will visit you (Israel) and perform My good word towards you and cause you to return to this place...Then you will call on Me and I will listen to you...I will be found by you...”
If we apply this verse to the present 70-year position, it says “after the 70 years are completed.” That could mean days, weeks, months or a year. Logically, it would not be more than that. This could take us up to Rosh Hashanah / Feast of Trumpets this year.
So are we in the time frame? Yes we are...right at the end of it!
The sign of anti-Semitism:
Anti-Semitism seeks to get rid of the Jews and their ownership of the land of Israel, and the city of Jerusalem. Anti-Semitism, by default, would then facilitate or allow Islam to fill the land of Israel.
That would of course, thwart God’s plans as revealed in His word.
Anti-Semitism replaces Israel with the world. Replacement theology replaces Israel with the church. The antichrist spirit replaces the true Messiah with the false. The anti-God spirit replaces God’s holiness with sin and evil in society. They are all of the same satanic spirit, the spirit of antichrist.
Please know and understand that God has placed His own name in Jerusalem. He has placed Himself by covenant promise in Israel and the Jews. He has placed His plan for the salvation of the world in the Jews.
The following verses speak succinctly of this:
- 2 Chronicles 33:4 “...The Lord said, My name shall be in Jerusalem forever.”
- Isaiah 43:1 “Thus says the Lord who created you, O Jacob, and He who formed you O Israel: Fear not, for I have redeemed you: I have called you by your name; you are mine.”
- Isaiah 60:3 “The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.”
Logic dictates that as God’s entire plan and program approaches, Satan tries to stop it. He is using anti-Semitism, replacement theology and anti-God principles to do it. He is using the unsaved and the deceived and blind within the church.
“The spirit of antichrist went out from us (the church) but was not of us”. (1 John 2:19)
The verse below is a terrible indictment upon the end-time leaders of the nations. It is all starting to come pass now. World leaders – take note of your God-declared doom:
Job 12:24-25 “He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, and makes them wander in a pathless wilderness. They grope in the dark without the light; He makes then stagger like a drunken man.”
You say, “God does not do that.” I say, “He does”! He does so because they have first of all hardened their hearts and rebelled from His ways.
Jeremiah 5:3 “O Lord, are not Your eyes on the truth? They have refused to receive correction. They have made their faces harder than rock. They have refused to return.”
How perfectly these verses relate to the, blinded world leaders and their position on Israel!
Anti-Semitism is a sign. It is the initial manifestation of the spirit of antichrist. Bear in mind that the sign preceding the Holocaust of WW11 was anti-Semitism in Europe and elsewhere. Bear in mind that WW11 led to the birth of the nation of Israel in one day, just after the Holocaust ended.
These things are patterns for the present time. Anti-Semitism in its various forms is the sign of the soon coming antichrist, the tribulation period, WW111, and the salvation of the Jews.
Anti-Semitism worldwide, is also one of the “hunters” to drive God’s people back to their land. (Jeremiah 16:16)
The anti-Semitic Amalakite spirit is seen in many Muslim organisations and peoples, like the Palestinians. It is an anti-Semitic spirit, but manifests specifically in acts of cruelty and cowardice.
Here is God’s answer to them: “The Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.” (Exodus 17:16) God says of them: “I will utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek for under heaven.”
The hour is approaching. The hour-glass is timing out. Time is running out. Eternity beckons. The Lion of the tribe of Judah is coming, full of wrath and fury to the world and to bring salvation to His own.
These are not words to impress. These are words of great gravity and monumental, eternal significance. These are words of life! If you ignore them, you are in dangerous peril!
The mass-media monster:
Be very sure of this: The objective of the media and its behind-the-scenes god, is not to inform you. It is to change you. It is to kill your godly conscience and turn you into one of their animals.
Modern man is becoming a monkey. He is being trained to become Satan’s useful idiot.
What’s coming now and is already at work, is a very hostile media towards the things of God and the plans of God for Israel. The mass-media are morphing into a true beast before our eyes!
The mass-media derives its world-view from two sources – theirs and Satan’s! The true Christian derives its world-view from one narrow-minded side – God’s!
- God’s word is the Christian’s media. ●Satan’s word is the mass-media. Satan knows his time is short. (Revelation 12:12) So he has to turn up the volume now in his voice.
The Christian sees the God's kingdom and the world's kingdom. The unbeliever sees neither!
It’s all about kingdoms in conflict, the spiritual forces at work, and the ability to see them.
There are thousands of verses that apply perfectly to the mass-media, some more directly than others. But there are some amazing consistencies.
Here are some verses that apply perfectly to the mass-media in our day:
Ezekiel 35:13-14 “With your mouth you have boasted against Me and multiplied your words against Me and I have heard them. Thus says the Lord God, the whole earth will rejoice when I make you desolate.”
2 Kings 19:22-23 “Whom have you reproached and blasphemed? Against whom have you raised your voice, and lifted up your eyes on high? Against the Holy One of Israel! By your messengers you have reproached the Lord...”
Isaiah 8:9-10 “Be shattered, O you peoples, and be broken in pieces! Give ear all you from far countries. Gird yourselves, but be broken in pieces. Take counsel together, but it will come to nothing; speak your word but it will not stand, for God is with us.”
Satan’s scribes unknowingly present a front of pretence and lies to the people, and the people buy into it with their whole lives. The mass-media gives lip service to their god, and the people give them ear-service and then heart service, and down the tubes they go!
This is particularly related to their opinion presentations, and not ordinary hard news.
Most people have been and are being groomed by the mass-media and their god. They’re being desensitised and dehumanised. Beware of the subliminal messages of the media.
Beware the dark tomb of silent lies! Silent lies are those that come in the form of a presumed, but unsaid conclusion. (Presumptive reasoning)
A good example of the above was seen in the presumption by the children of Israel that there were more enemies against them than not. The truth was, “There are more with us than with them,” (2 Kings 6:16) referring to an entire sky of unseen spiritual forces with them.
There is a danger in editors who use selective editing to paint a picture. What they leave out, because it doesn’t suit their agenda, perverts or changes an entire meaning of a “truth.”
Exodus 23:1-2 “You shall not circulate a false report (fake news) or follow an unrighteous witness. You shall not follow the crowd to do evil.”
Here are some more shocking verses relating to the media today:
Jeremiah 9:5 “Everyone will deceive his neighbour and not speak the truth. They have taught their tongue to speak lies...”
Psalm 56:5 “All day long they twist my words; all their thoughts are against me for evil.”
Proverbs 28:2 “Because of the transgression of a nation, many are its princes.” (Multitudes of voices and opinions)
►It is perfectly scriptural to bind the works of devil in the media by prayer. You can’t stop them, but you can hinder them and stop them from influencing you and others. You can decree: So far and no further. As a Spirit-filled Christian in these days, your spiritual warfare must include the silencing of the influence of the media in your life.
Its good practise to take verses of scripture, personalise them, pray them and proclaim them.
Psalm 55:9 “Destroy, O Lord and divide their tongues, for I have seen violence and strife in the city.”
Psalm 64:5-8 “They encourage themselves in an evil matter, they talk of laying snares secretly; they say, who will see them? They devise iniquities. ‘We have perfected a shrewd scheme.’ Both the inward thought and the heart of man are deep. But God will shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly, they shall be wounded. So He will make them stumble over their own tongue.”
The true radical Christian should be immune to the influenced by the media:
Isaiah 50:4-5 “The Lord has given me the tongue of the learned that I should know how to speak a word in season to him who is weary. He awakens me morning by morning. He awakens my ear to hear as the learned. The Lord has opened my ear.”
Today the wisdom from below is surfacing with a stench. (James 3:15) But remember, “Where sin abounds, grace does much more abound.” (Romans 5:20)
The world is preparing the rope, Satan will hang them with! Many are already in the prison of subservience to their ultimate dictator.
You must live in this present society – free from the influence of society at large! It’s no accident that the god of this world is called the “beast!”
Arising Simonised Christianity:
As these end-times race towards their conclusion we see a great rift in the church. It is intensifying now. It comes in many forms. Simonised Christianity is just one them.
This is found amongst those who seek to impress people, and of whom the people say, “This is the great man with the power of God.” He is secretly, money hungry, manipulative and will even use lying signs and wonders to achieve fame. (Acts 8:9-11, Acts 8:20-21)
Much of modern Christianity has become a new “golden calf” religion, full of pretty, dead sheep, driven by the spirit of the world. Pride rules them.
Polished, performance is generally powerless. The people are fun-fed, but dead on their feet. Their leaders think they hear from God, but many don’t even know the basics of the Bible! No one in leadership that does not know his Bible backwards in these days, has any right to hear from God – and won’t!
Status-seeking, shallow shepherds are blind to their own Laodicean state. They produce pure pride, after their own kind. They have cast aside the cross. A need of outward pleasurable performance shows their inner bankruptcy.
Of course there are some wonderful exceptions to the above few paragraphs.
Right in the middle of this superficiality there are many who seek to go deep with God. They are sincere and want nothing less than all of what God wants for them. They are willing and eager to die, to take up their cross, to “put off” the things of the world and “put on” the things of God.
They see the fast approaching kingdom of God and the fast deteriorating kingdom of the world. They want out of the one and want in of the other!
Every Christian will enter eternity being eternally grateful, but many will also realise how they missed so many God-called and ordained opportunities in their lives. Yes, obviously heaven will be unimaginably magnificent, but the loss of reward will be regretfully a reality!
One of my main aims is to encourage and motivate believers to be their best, so that when they step into eternity it will be with no regrets at all.
Be serious with all things spiritual, be slack in nothing!
I took the waterfall picture in the Mpumalanga Province and the Baobab tree in the Limpopo Province and merged them together.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
