This website is distinctly Messianic, comprising the Abrahamic expression of faith, which is to the Jew and the Gentile with a Hebraic character. We affirm the fullness of absolute truth contained in the Bible, embracing the cross and identifying with the convocations of the Lord as seen in the Feasts, the Sabbath and Passover. We reject the legalism of many in the Messianic movement. We reject the Babylonian Pagan traditions of the church. We consider all people Jews and Gentiles and those in all churches who are truly born of the Spirit of the living God to be one family. We reject institutional organised denominationalism (division). We foresee a great falling away of much of the church in these days, while at the same time a great restoration of part of the church. We affirm and identify with God's plan and call to the Jewish people in these days and will support and stand with them as future brothers and sisters. We stand happily with pre / mid/ and post tribbers. Our slant is cautiously pre-trib, but hey, post tribber...you're still family! Today much error has been added to Christendom and much truth has been removed. The Prophetic Scroll's aim is to deal with these issues and assist you on your road to glory.
I was saved in 1976 and became extremely interested in Bible prophecy, being an ex war-correspondent and photographer. My calling and aim is to share the dramatic and all-important issues of prophecy relating to our day. This is a calling to unfold and share the wisdom of God as contained in His word. There is also much teaching in these pages for your heart. It’s not all prophecy! Please study these things further yourself and understand that the format is non-exhaustive. Please search the scriptures to “see if these be true.” This is a "watchman" and Bible prophecy teaching website.

(My comment in italics)
●Israeli / Iran relationship heats up as Iran warns Israel to respect the nuclear agreement. Iran unveils new “smart missiles”. This while an ISIS terrorist is discovered plotting chemical attacks in Israel (Israel National News, 20th February)
●Syria fires missile into Israel which lands harmlessly in the Golan, but infuriates Israel. (19th February)
●Israel attacked with missiles fired from Sinai region. (There has been a large increase in missile attacks on Israel, since Netanyahu declared “A new day of friendship with the US.”)
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.
Edition 307: April 13th 2016
The information highways:
The information highways:
We are all products of the information highway that we are on.
It was Clark Gable as Rhett in the 1939 classic movie, Gone with the Wind, who was the first to utter a swear word on the big screen. He famously said, “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn.” In those days, that was outrageous and caused a public stir.
I would like to presume that it was this event that signalled the world’s one giant step onto a slippery slope from which it can never recover.
That incident very quickly became acceptable and then the standard. Then the acceptable norm was stretched further and further, as the Bible was removed more and more, and now we’re in a world with no restraint, no biblical values or virtues, all in the name of human rights. But its human rights without God and His rights.
Evil, unchecked, will always advance, speaking great words of tolerance, until it is dominant. Because evil and error are spiritual forces they must always silence opposition to themselves as they gather momentum.
Psalm 74:20-23 “...For the dark places of the earth are full of the habitation of cruelty...The tumult of those who rise up against You, increases continually.”
Subtly, and un-announced, evil of all forms with no restraint is here. The people of the world blindly accept what the media highway decides is normal.
The great tragedy, which everyone will soon wake up to, is that “normal” has been decided for them by Satan, the godless standard setter, who is the god of this world.
Often when I look into the face of a complete stranger I wonder to myself if that person will go to heaven or hell. Every time I look into the face of a CNN, SKY, BBC or other mass media anchor, I know I’m looking at someone destined for hell.
Sometimes I think...if only they knew. If only I could get them to see it!
Yes, some of them might get saved, but none will be secure in salvation if they remain a product of their media industry and bosses.
A very simple daily analogy is this: Almost everywhere there are escalators with one going up next to one going down. The same is evident on every highway – one lane goes one direction, right next to one going the other way.
This is a reflection of everyone’s lives. People are going one way or the other whether they admit it, know it, or not. Its heaven or hell and everyone is on one of those two highways.
Modern science, technology, medicine, education, communications, and just about every aspect of life has really advanced and matured, making our lives so much better and more convenient. But one thing modern man has not been able to improve, is the heart and morality of mankind.
Hearts can be fixed by heart surgeons, but the moral heart of man remains “desperately wicked” and is getting worse fast. (Jeremiah 17:9) The heart of fallen man pumps the sin-filled blood of Adam.
The highway to hell has upon it many, many more people than the highway to heaven.
How do I get onto the right highway?
To get onto the big highway to hell, with the great majority of people on it – do nothing.
To get onto the highway to heaven, you must make the conscious, wilful choice, get saved, which is free and then spend everything you have and are to keep going along the highway to heaven to the wonderful destination.
Don’t get me wrong, yes there is a heavy price to pay, but what you get in return is priceless beyond measure!
Check and guard your influences:
1 Corinthians 15:33 “Do not be deceived, evil company corrupts good habits.”
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.”
John 12:43 “They loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.”
The fear or approval of men, friends, peers, or the world is a deadly force. It creeps up on you. A great big bull with a ring through its nose and rope tying it to a pole is going nowhere. The bull has the strength, to break free, but the nose-ring does the job. It’s too sore to pull away, so it stays put.
That’s just like far too many people. They are attached to opinions of man, the ways of the world and the group-speak of the media and they can’t break free because it’s too sore for their ego and pride.
The highway to heaven has you attached by a nose-ring to God and His truth, but the spectacular difference is that it reforms, reconstructs and changes you into a glorious instrument of the living God.
The world’s nose-ring is dirty, evil, sin-filled, wicked and tormenting. God’s nose-ring is a graceful, majestic, pure, instrument of wonderful transformation into holiness.
Proverbs 13:20 “He who walks with wise men shall be wise, but the companion of fools will be destroyed.
Psalm 26:4-5 “I have not sat with idolatrous mortals (people), nor will I go in with hypocrites. I have hated the congregation of evildoers, and will not sit with the wicked.”
John 5:41 “I do not receive honour from men.”
Acts 5:29 “We ought to obey God rather than men.”
Too many measure themselves among and by themselves instead of the entire pure doctrine of the Bible itself.
Psalm 119:160 “The entirety of Your word is truth, and every one of your righteous judgements endures forever.”
Too many are products of their church minister and the church denominations and divisions, none of which are of God. (1Corinthians 1:10-11)
The calling of The Prophetic Scroll:
This publication is an information highway. It’s loved by most readers and hated by some. It is designed to fill many missing gaps in today’s modern ministries. It’s aimed at your head and your heart! It’s designed to stand as a ministry of watching and warning relating to all things prophetic and more as our Lord leads.
Part of the call is to present the Spirit of truth to today’s world and attack the spirit of error.
Part of the call of The Prophetic Scroll is to offer the stability of the truth. It is to present the knowledge of what’s going on and why and how to find your way to victory. It is to dispel and cast out fear with knowledge and understanding of the truth, led by the Spirit of God.
Part of the call is to look for repeating patterns in history, signs, numbers, dates and more all as the Spirit leads. It is to deal effectively with the 27% of the Bible which constitutes prophecy – and much more.
●To be on the cutting edge of all things prophetic as revealed in the scriptures.
●To feed you with this rare food.
●To help you prepare for eternity, not just in terms of salvation, but eternal reward.
●It is to attack, criticise, warn, and rebuke the great errors of our day. It is to come strongly against the works of the devil in many false doctrines. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
●It is to confront and clash with religion, the biggest lie of the age and to warn others to flee.
●It is to say what the Holy Spirit is saying now in these critical days. It is to present the depths of the love of God in biblical goodness and severity.
●It is to be straight, honest and personal with no airy fairy, wishy-washy, half-baked hogwash in these perilous times.
●Above all it is to present the offence of the cross in your face, so that you can only accept it or reject it.
●It is to identify, stand with and walk with other watchmen as led by the Spirit.
1 Chronicles 26:16 (Temple Gatekeepers) “...At the West Gate, on the ascending highway you shall have watchmen opposite watchmen.”
If you have “watchmen opposite watchmen” you fill in the gaps. What one does not see the other will, so you will have full, well-rounded coverage and insights into the things of God.
The call of the Prophetic Scroll to Israel:
This part of the call is to stand with and make known God’s word to Israel in these days. It is to stand with Israel and to come against their enemy, as our own.
Israel is the only nation on earth with a direct clear title deed from God to ownership of the land and city. This is one of the reasons why they are hated with a supernatural hatred.
The deepest and longest hate campaign in the world is against the Jews. It is so because it is also the deepest and longest love story in the world, with soon-coming great and dramatic results!
The central key verses of this section of the calling are:
***Ezekiel 3:17 “I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel, hear My word and give warning for Me.”
***Esther 4:14 “For if you remain silent at this time; 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?”
***Isaiah 62:1 “For Zion’s sake I will not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her righteousness goes forth like brightness and her salvation as a lamp that burns.”
Very soon there will be great danger, terror and judgement upon all who oppose and come against God’s work with Israel today. Almost the whole world will be on the receiving end! Many churches, even some ministers reading these words, are about to be cut off by God ahead of the terror that awaits them.
The future of the BDS Movement and everyone in the camp of replacement theology are in for the greatest shock they will ever have. It will send shudders of shock, through them. It will soon be too late for them to change course.
Isaiah 41:11 “Behold, all those who were incensed against you (Israel) shall be ashamed and disgraced; they shall be nothing, and those who strive with you shall perish.”
Psalm 129:5 “Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.”
What to me is simply outrageous and tragically funny is to hear so many ministers proclaim that they are Bible believers, blessed by God, doing His work while at the same time proclaiming replacement theology or support for the BDS Movement or other anti-Semitic activity.
They are blessed alright – blessed of the devil himself.
What is your life?
Do all roads in your life lead to the cross? Is self, the world and the demonic crucified in your life?
The most important question you can ever ask yourself is the same question God will ask you! “What is your life?”
Psalm 144:3-4 “Lord what is man that You take knowledge of him? Or the son of man that You are mindful of him? Man is like a breath; his days are like a passing shadow.”
Yes our lives are like a breath and passing shadow, but this is in terms of time in the universal, eternal scale of things. We have the opportunity now to create eternal jewels out of “shadows” and pure gold out of “breath”.
Colossians 3:4 “When Messiah who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.”
Why are so many careless and unconcerned about their eternal state and spiritual lives, when truth is actually so exciting, revolutionary and radical? It’s because their leaders, church, peers or close friends are spiritually lukewarm or dead!
When dealing with spiritual issues there is no neutrality.
If you as a minister present a half truth, or half of the gospel, the other half will be filled with presumption and error.
Ephesians 5:15-16 “See that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.”
Proverbs 19:8 “He who gets wisdom loves his own soul; he who keeps (acquires) understanding will find good.”
Proverbs 15:24 “The way of life winds upwards for the wise; that he may turn away from hell below.”
Why it’s all so important today:
It’s always important to have spiritual eyesight and know where you are and what’s going on. But there is one point in time identified in scripture as the most decisive and critical time ever in history and that is now.
We all get the news from our choices of media. The mass media is the only place we can get world news from. Receiving pure hard news from these sources is fine, but we dare not receive into our hearts the opinion-reports.
If you know your Bible well as taught by the Holy Spirit, you will see how deceived mass-media news anchors are. You will have a true measure of all things in your heart and you will not fall for the garbage-opinions of the media.
If you are ignorant of the Bible, you have no measuring standard, and you are in a world of variables where anything goes. You are then gullible and open to being led and formed by the devil-led opinions of the media.
Bear in mind that the mass-media has to keep itself in business and make itself believable. Bear in mind also that the opinions of the media are in fact the opinions of their bosses and their boss-Satan. Don’t underestimate the power of the media.
All forms and sources of input into your heart must be filtered through and measured by the word of God and the living Holy Spirit.
I’ve shared this many times before, here it comes again:
In the ancient Greek the word “hoopocrites” is the origin of the word “hypocrite”. The “hoopocrite” was the person in ancient theatre, who would come onto the stage to introduce the next act. If it was to be a tragedy, he would wear the reverse-smile mask. If a comedy, he would wear the smiley mask. We still have these two masks today representing theatre. But, the real meaning of the word is the person behind the mask is not the same as the mask.
The biblical original word “kosmokratos” means “world power”. It is used to describe Satan.
It is Satan who is the world power, the original “hoopocrite” wearing a smiley mask or a tragedy mask. He is the world power behind the masks. He is not the same as the masks. He is the true hypocrite, the master of camouflage.
Satan is so clearly seen as this world power and “hoopocrite” in the mass media.
One day we will all stand before the living God in judgement, not some swine media boss or reporter. Your eternal destination and your eternal reward-state, depends on which highway you are on.
Bear in mind that truth and error often travel the same highway with error camouflaged as truth.
Truth and error are not matters of opinion. They are not matters of some private interpretation. Have you ever listened to critics of the truth declare that it’s all a matter of interpretation and opinion – fools! Next time you hear that take note that the next thing out of that person’s mouth will be support for the devil.
We are on a narrow highway of and to the beauty of holiness righteousness and purity. Most are on the wide-road, the highway to hell!
***Isaiah 5:14-16 “Sheol (hell) has enlarged itself and opened its mouth beyond measure....”
***Isaiah 14:9-11 “Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming; It stirs up the dead for you, all the chief ones of the earth; it has raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. They all shall speak and say to you: ‘Have you become as weak as us? Your pomp (pride) is brought down to Sheol (hell).’”
The dark, deadly highway:
The verse below (and others like it) speaks of a frightening time that lies ahead:
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.”
The majority of this will be fulfilled in the tribulation period, but we could see a fair amount beforehand.
What event could prevent the gospel from going out? It could be mass government control. It could be the results of an EMP attack. It could be a result of any number of large geo-political events. Let’s remember that Satan is alive and well and is intensifying his works in these days, because he knows his time is just about up. (Revelation 12:12)
The big bottom line is, are you ready? Do you know our Lord and His word? Do you know how to stand against the devices of the devil?
The true, full, undiluted gospel is the super, super-highway! It is the greatest and most powerful source of all truth, righteousness and holiness. Church doctrine is a highway as well, but the way the gospel is treated, cut, edited and selected is where the problems lie.
My friends, the kingdom of God is so much bigger, larger, deeper and richer than any church and its doctrine.
Of course churches are fine that see themselves as part of this giant enormous kingdom rather than through churchy tunnel vision.
The deadly media:
Today the mass media is a different animal. It is deadly dangerous. It operates in your life in what we call gradualism. Little bit by little bit, it changes your beliefs and values.
►You must know and understand how the spirit of antichrist works. It must come against and replace the true Messiah, and then the door is open for the false Messiah. That’s how replacement theology works. It comes against the truth that God has a wonderful plan for the Jews and then it replaces them with the church. That is also how anti-Semitism works. It comes against God’s plan for Israel and then replaces Israel with the Arabs / Palestinians.
That, my friends is just how the mass media works today. It comes against the truth then fills it in with all their satanic deceit, lies, presumptions and garbage.
Don’t underestimate this...don’t do it!
I’ve said this a dozen time recently. I don’t know exactly what is coming and exactly when, but I have a very strong inner witness, feeling that something big is about to break on the world prophetic front.
I’m not one who goes around saying, “the Lord told me”. But I know when I have this strong inner witness in my heart, not to ignore it. It’s always right.
Now is the time to stand strong. Now is the time to fully surrender all aspects of your lives to our Lord. Don’t wait till the shaking starts. Do it now.
Proverbs 27:19 “...A man’s heart reveals the man.”
I took this picture of the giant Makuku Makete Baobab tree, some 3000 years old in one of our private game reserves. That’s my niece, to offer some perspective. This tree had a 40m circumference! This tree and many others in the area are no more. They died due to local drought.

Shalom and grow in grace!
Edition 306: April 6th 2016
Oceans of peace in a world of violence:
Oceans of peace in a world of violence:
Today there are many major end-time pressures including stress, torment, anguish, misery, suffering, unhappiness, self righteous pride, rebellion against God and many other such things affecting people personally, and it’s getting worse fast!
On a wider level, violence, terrorism, mass murder, torture and the like are reaching shocking depths of depravity and it’s getting worse fast – all as prophesied in the Bible.
Of course there is the other side of the story all around us too. The outpouring of the Spirit of God is at work and on the go. Masses are getting saved especially in the Asian nations and the Middle East.
We must be aware of both. We need to take end-time pressures and make them work for us. We need to be conduits of the Holy Spirit in His work. We must be aware that our lives, when stable and full of God’s fruit are a living testimony to others around us, who are falling apart.
Oceans of internal peace are available and right before us, in this insane world, but there are conditions to be met.
Let’s identify the world of violence firstly:
There are many masses of people out there who love killing, and death. “War is in their hearts.” Islam is particularly a major problem today, because it combines the Qurans instructions to murder, kill and rape with its deceptive religion. It is all coming to its great end-time prophetic fulfilment and conclusion.
Violence and terrorism today:
Violence: Strong’s H 2555 = Chamac (Hamas –derivative). The meanings are: Violence, terrorism, cruelty, damaging, destruction, injustice.
Genesis 6:5-13 “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 continually. The earth was corrupt before God and the earth was filled with violence...and God said to Noah, ‘The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence...I will destroy them with the earth.”
That’s quite an amazing verse, which at that stage was prophetic. We know the story, it came to pass exactly. But, we are now in the “days of Noah,” version two! Do those verses above in Genesis describe our world today? They do exactly.
Today the word of God has been so universally rejected and cast down by governments, society, educational institutions, entertainment, religious institutions, even commerce and industry.
The effects of casting down God’s word on a national or even an international scale are extremely dramatic to say the least. The single big effect is the casting off of restraint.
Rather than give you my explanations, I’m presenting you now with a whole bunch of Bible verses on this exact subject. Don’t gloss over them, read them, study them and let them speak to you:
Hosea 4:1-3 “There is no truth, or mercy or knowledge of God in the land. By swearing, lying, killing and stealing and committing adultery, they break all restraint, with bloodshed after bloodshed. Therefore the land will mourn and everyone who dwells there will waste away with the beasts of the field, the birds of the air and the fish of the sea.”
Psalm11:5 “The Lord tests the righteous, but the wicked and the one who loves violence, his soul He hates.”
Psalm 73:6 “Pride serves as their necklace; violence covers them like a garment.”
Obadiah 1:10 “For your violence against your brother Jacob (Israel), shame shall cover you and you shall be cut off forever.”
Proverbs 6:17 (Seven things that are an abomination to God.) “A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood.”
Proverbs 28:28 “When the wicked arise, men hide themselves; but when they perish the righteous increase.”
Psalm 9:17 “The wicked shall be turned into hell and all the nations that forget (forsake) God.”
Psalm 68:30 “...Scatter the people who delight in war.”
Psalm 140:1-2 “Deliver me O Lord, from evil men; preserve me from violent men, who plan evil things in their hearts; they continually gather together for war.”
Psalm 55:21 “The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart; his words were softer than oil, but they were drawn swords.”
Isaiah 60:12 “For the nation and kingdom that will not serve You shall perish, and those nations shall be utterly ruined.”
Note the central points of the verses above in bold. You tell me, do they relate to today?
“My glittering sword”
Deuteronomy 32:41-43 “If I sharpen My glittering sword, and My hand takes hold of judgement, I will render vengeance to My enemies, and repay those who hate Me. I will make My arrows drunk with blood, and My sword shall devour flesh...rejoice O Gentiles with His people; for He will avenge the blood of His servants...He will provide atonement for His land and His people.”
These three verses above are most profound and important. Firstly they are a slap in the face for the pacifists. Secondly, they imply spectacular judgement coming from God. Perhaps the full extent of this sort of judgement will only come about in the tribulation period, but there will be birth pangs and forerunners.
Now let’s examine the main message: God speaks here about His people (Jews) and His land (Israel). But note that there is also a group of Gentiles mentioned here who are rejoicing with His people the Jews.
Who is this group of Gentiles? It can only be those who stand with Israel and God’s end-time saving work with the Jews. It can only be true Gentile Christians with a heart for Israel. It can only be Christian Zionists.
Note who God’s enemies are! They are those who hate Him, but would most certainly include those that hate His people and His work with His people and the land! His “enemies” would be the anti-Semites of the world, including those within the church. His enemies would most certainly include those of replacement theology. (If you would like to see much more on the subject of replacement theology, just have a look in the “Index by Subject” link.)
If God has selected and chosen a “glittering sword” to be drenched in the blood of His and His people’s enemies, don’t you think it’s worth getting on the right side of God?
I say again: The vengeance and judgement of God, according to this verse above, is coming not only on His enemies, but on the enemies of His people and land!
If the living God has decided to bring severe judgement into a situation, that makes it an act of righteousness, and in fact holiness. His judgement is always upon sin, evil and wickedness. His judgement always has the end purpose of restoring or establishing holiness.
If you want to know what sin is from God’s perspective – and you should, just look at what God brings vengeance and judgement on.
What an incredible shock awaits so many people!
Isaiah 48:22 “There is no peace, says the Lord, for the wicked.”
Matthew 10:34 “Do not think I came to bring peace on earth, I came to bring a sword.”
Oceans of peace:
So now we see an end-time world of violence, terror and many evils, but in the midst of it all there is another wonderful world available. It’s hidden to most, but it’s there...its right here!
As we get closer to our Lord we encounter His character, His ways and fruits.
There is always something mysterious and majestic about knowing God deeply and intimately.
You can’t draw near to, and experience God without a dramatic encounter with deep peace and all the other fruits that are of Him and in Him. So even in world shaking, and about to be judged, peace can be your lot.
Now have a look at the verses below; they are so comforting and true. These verses must become more than words on a page – they can and must become your lot. Again don’t gloss over them, read and study them.
It’s a good idea to take these verses, and your own and make them regular prayers and proclamations:
Isaiah 48:18 “Oh that you had heeded My commandments! Then your peace would be like a river and your righteousness like the waves of the sea.”
Psalm 147:11-14 “The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him, in those who hope in His mercy...He makes peace in your borders.”
John16:33 “These things I have spoken to you that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
Philippians 4:7-9 “The peace of God which surpasses understanding will guard your hearts and minds through Yeshua Messiah....the things which you leaned and received and heard and saw, these things do, and the God of peace will be with you.”
Romans 8:6 “To be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”
1 Corinthians 14:33 “God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.”
Isaiah 66:12 “Behold I will extend peace to her (Israel) like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream.”
Psalm 4:8 “I will sleep and lie down in peace, for You alone O Lord, make me dwell in safety.”
Job 5:23 “You shall have a covenant with the stones of the field, and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with you.”
Job 22:21 “Acquaint yourself with Him and be at peace. Thereby good (prosperity) will come to you.”
Proverbs 16:7 “When a man’s ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.”
I’ve called this edition “Oceans of peace” simply because oceans are so big and so deep. They have so much to them that is hidden and below the surface.
There is no limit to the experience of God. There are no limits to the depths of joy, peace and stability in Him.
A little known, or spoken of fruit of knowing Him is restraint in your life. Restraint then produces peace. This is the opposite of the fruit of the world. – The exact opposite!
Let me say it again. Knowing God produces restraint and restraint produces peace.
The only way to live in real deep peace is to know the word of the Lord inspired and led by the Spirit.
Looking in the wrong place:
Most people look in the wrong place for peace and relief from stress. They think that money and worldly goods will produce the spiritual goods. Remember that verse above? “In the world you will have tribulation, but in Me you will have peace.”
Too many think that if only they can be successful in the world and have lots of money they will be in peace. I know many who think that, but not one ever has ever encountered the deep peace of God, by looking for it in the world.
The more you fill your life with the ways and things of the world, the more of an idiot you are. You will never ever get free from stress and be in godly peace!
The funny thing is people in stress and torment try to pull us down who live in peace! They want us to become stressed out just like them. If that’s you – listen up. I’ve been there, just where you are. Do you think I don’t know what a lot of rubbish your worldly lives are? Sorry – been there, done that – you’re too late to try and bring me down into your heap of worldly cow dung!
Of course I’m not suggesting that we don’t need the things of the world. We are in the world but must beware of being trapped by it or consumed by it. We must see and know its spirit!
Your life is a testimony to many. With some, you are the only “Bible” they will ever read. Many times people don’t like or won’t believe the verses of the Bible, but they like the fruits they see in you. Often it’s the fruit of peace that they can’t get their heads around, but are attracted to.
Peace comes from fitting your life into the truth. It’s really frustrating trying to make a jigsaw puzzle piece fit that doesn’t. But when the right piece is in place, you rest and go ahh – that’s it. Now I see the picture!
Personally, I gave up looking for peace in this world ages ago. I live in peace and would not exchange it for anything, thank you very much.
Light, darkness, peace and torment:
The Bible talks of the “truth being cast down in the street,” in these last days! (Isaiah 59:14) But what this really means is that the truth will be cast down in people’s hearts. They will reject the truth and its vital life-line and messages for today.
When you cast down the truth you have no direction finder or indicator. You are lost!
You don’t have to believe this, but it’s the truth. In these days very few people know the Bible adequately enough to give them vital direction.
My friends the time is coming soon where spiritual darkness and accompanying torment will be here. It just may come suddenly. You need to know our Lord now. You need to be deeply rooted in Him now, not when the shaking begins.
It’s too late to look for the light when the darkness is here.
Jeremiah 13:15-16 “Hear and give ear; do not be proud, for the Lord has spoken. Give glory to the Lord your God, before He causes darkness, and before your feet stumble on the dark mountains, and while you are looking for the light, He turns it into the shadow of death and makes it dense darkness.”
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.”
Psalm 74:20-23 “Have respect to the covenant; for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitation of cruelty...The tumult of those who rise up against You increases continually.”
Romans 13:12 “The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armour of light.”
The peace of forgiveness:
Being unforgiven creates a force or weight of stress. Even if you are not aware of it, the pressure is there. You know that when you are out of favour with someone for some reason, it creates stress. But when forgiveness is spoken out or requested, the situation calms down and peace comes along.
The same is true with God. The unsaved are not right with God. They are unforgiven. There is an inner stress that they might not even be aware of. Coming into the experience of forgiveness produces peace with God.
The unforgiven have an inner fear in their lives whether they can identify it or not. Fear, especially enduring fear always produces stress.
Ecclesiastes 10:4 “...Conciliation pacifies great offences.”
Peace in this day of violence:
The world is not getting better and better. The world has shot itself in the foot by kicking God out. It will never be healed. But oceans of peace are available and will get better and better as we grow in His grace and die to the world.
Violence, terror and all manner of horrors will be the world’s adorning. Like that verse says above, “Violence will be the world’s necklace and garment.” The story will be radically different in the Millennium. That will be because Satan will be bound and out of the picture. The world will then be a world of glorious peace.
The principle works now too. You can live in a “Millennium” of peace now, with Satan largely out of your personal picture. We can’t be rid of him now completely, but with the spiritual weapons and armour supplied through the gifts of the Spirit we can go a long way towards living in peace.
This day of violence will soon come to a bitter end, but this day of peace is endless.
Personally, I live in peace. Very little rocks that boat. I don’t allow it to, but what about living in a physical place of peace?
We all need to live somewhere. It’s really not so much about where in the world we live, but where we live with our experience of God. He can and will bring peace into our homes and dwelling places.
For me, I have a number of regular prayers as well other daily prayers as led. One regular prayer is over my home – to keep it safe and in peace. You can have a dwelling place of peace even in a place where war is on the go.
1 Timothy 2:1-2 “I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and the giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all in authority, that we might live a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence .”
The verse above is actually the will of God for governments. It is their duty to set up and create an environment of peace. You can add Romans 13 to this, speaking of the powers of governmental authority, even the death penalty, to preserve a nation of peace under God.
Many world leaders will soon arrive at a destination with a big banner out front saying – “Welcome to hell.”
In the bigger picture there are some places where nothing but trouble is coming because they have capitulated to the enemy and kicked God out insulting His word. (Remember that “glittering sword”)
Europe has not paid yet for its modern-day anti-Semitism and pressure on Israel to capitulate to Islam. God has not turned a blind eye. Europe is about to pay a very heavy price. The “glittering sword” is coming your way Europe!
The current wave of Islamic terror is just the very beginning. Europe can do very little about it, because they have thrown down and thrown out God and His word. In Europe we see an expression of the wicked heart of man, now taking over in the form of violence.
The amazing, incredible thing is that Europe has kicked out the living God and His word and invited in the inherently violent with their evil word of death and destruction. Europe has kicked God out so who do they have as their defender? Only their enemy Satan, whom in their blindness, they have befriended.
Freedom is not freedom if it allows freedom to be destroyed. You can’t have freedom or peace, by welcoming in your worst nightmare!
Colossians 1:20 “He has reconciled all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross.”
At the end of the day, the most violent act of torture, death and bloodshed, the cross of our Messiah was the actual instrument of life and peace. There is no alternative or other way to peace with God.
Without the cross you have the devil in numerous forms of disguise that you need special, supernatural glasses to even see, never mind deal with.

Edition 305: March 30th 2016
The danger of gullibility:
The danger of gullibility:
Proverbs 14:15 “The simple (Lit=gullible) believes every word (anything). But the prudent man considers well his steps.”
A gullible person can be described as one who is easily tricked, cheated, manipulated or deceived. These are people who are naive, easily taken in, or hoodwinked. They repeatedly fall hook, line and sinker for anything presented as truth. They are susceptible, ignorant suckers.
The opposite is a person who is astute, knowledgeable, with deep understanding, caution and wisdom...one who is discerning, perceptive and solid as a rock.
We are now in dark days of deception and its going to get a lot worse very fast. We are now in days of the outpouring of the spirit of Satan, with all his tricks, schemes and plans to keep people unsaved and to neutralise certain believers.
We are in days of extreme evil because the heart of man is wicked internally, and Satan is at work externally, because his days are just about up. (Revelation 12:12)
We need more than ever to go deep in experience with our Lord. We need to go deep into the knowledge and understanding of His word as led and inspired by the Spirit. We need to become radical.
We are in a world that operates on instant, pop-up results. Digital everything lends itself to high-speed results. But it’s all shallow in character.
Our Lord will never compromise on the character of His servants.
The cause of gullibility:
Proverbs 1:32 “...The complacency of fools will destroy them.”
Of course there are many causes of, and different degrees or depths of gullibility, but there are a few big causes that are consistent in most victims. The verse above identifies complacency as one of these causes.
Complacency is really a sense of smugness or security in ones present state of ignorance. Today, huge numbers of people fit the ‘complacent’ bill. Are you content and complacent in your present position? Do you want to push ahead with our Lord, forever forward? If you don’t you just might get stuck in a rut of your own making, going nowhere fast.
The gullible never mature properly, which takes time and effort, because they want it all now and are too shallow to submit to God. There is no depth of spiritual root in them. As a result they are tossed about with every wind of doctrine, fancy idea and error of the devil. (Ephesians 4:14)
Proverbs 14:18 “The simple (naive) inherit folly, but the prudent are crowned with knowledge.”
“Prudent” means: Wise, well-judged, well advised, acting with care and thought for the future.
An inheritance is something that is your birthright, bequested to you. Note in the verse above that simple, naive people inherit foolishness, but you don’t have to take the inheritance! You can choose to leave it aside and be “crowned with knowledge”. How much better that is!
My friends, knowledge understanding and the wisdom of God don’t come cheaply. They will cost you everything you are, and ultimately reward you more than you can imagine.
The verse below is tragic indeed. Do you see how dangerous it is to be influenced by the unsaved world or unsaved friends? This is a certain cause of gullibility.
Habakkuk 1:4 “For the wicked surround the righteous; therefore perverse judgment proceeds.”
Whatever the world esteems highly soon becomes the esteem of the church... in a short time! That’s if you’re not diligent.
There is another frightening cause of gullibility – God Himself! (2 Thessalonians 2:11). (See further down for more on this.)
Why is gullibility such a dangerous problem today?
Proverbs 1:22 “How long, you simple ones (naive ones), will you love foolishness? Scorners (mockers) delight in their scorning and fools hate knowledge.”
The above verse is a perfect description of the workings of pride. How many people do you know who love to mock, they rise up in their scorning. It’s so easy to mock and scorn something or someone that you don’t understand.
The biggest problem facing the unsaved and the gullible Christian today is spiritual blindness. Pride always causes spiritual blindness. Our Lord is coming soon. The world’s lord is coming soon too. Can you see them? Can you see the signs of both approaching?
I have such a perfect example here in my home. I have a beautiful dog that recently went blind. She now has full sight restored. But in her blindness, which came about suddenly, I often watched her walk right into a wall, or a hedge, and saw her fall into my pool twice. She was totally blind to all dangers and obstacles. Thankfully, the story now is the opposite.
But that’s the case for the spiritually blind – no different! How absolutely shocking to be in that position! How amazing it is to see people blunder on ahead straight into the obstacle and trap the devil has lain.
If you get your news from the deceived, spiritually blind, news media, please tell me what’s going on with Islamic terror at the moment? Well, you would say what the media says. It’s all about a few who have been radicalised. But not one of them knows why.
We, who know the Bible and the Spirit of our God, know that all who believe the Quran must ultimately become radical enforcers of Sharia law. We know that a grand Islamic strategy is on the go to spread fear so that Sharia law can come in without too much resistance. We know that a grand strategy is on the go to “soften” and deal with other Muslim nations, to bring them all fully into their fold.
We also know that this is all a pre-cursor strategy to their great overall, end-time purpose of defeating Israel, and the Jew, which is on hold right now, while these other strategies take precedent.
We know that the USA is a key target of Islam and will soon experience terror like never before. We know that it’s all part of the grand strategy of Satan to control and dominate the world. We also know that Islam will be defeated by Israel in the tribulation period – how about that!
We know that all of this means our Lord is coming very soon. It’s all a fast approaching glory story!
You see, if you know these things and can see them, you will not be filled with fear. You will not be gullible and fall for all the clever rubbish of the media and the self-motivation ministers.
Knowing God’s word and Spirit is the way to victory. It is the hope of the world. It is the answer.
Proverbs 21:10-11 “The soul of the wicked desires evil...when the wise is instructed he receives knowledge.”
There is something in the hearts of the unsaved, but also in many believers that secretly loves evil. They reject God’s wisdom. And they remain trapped in their evil, full of blindness and gullibility.
Don’t let the pride of the gullible stand in the way of your growth in the Lord.
More on gullibility:
Perhaps one of the most powerful revelations you can receive from our Lord and His word is that truth and error are spirits. Gullibility is a form a deception and a spirit of error.
Isaiah 5:13 “My people have gone into captivity because they have no knowledge ...” The word “knowledge” is Strong’s H1847 meaning “perceptive, discerning” knowledge.
Proverbs 1:28-29 “Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; they will seek Me diligently, but will not find Me, because they hated knowledge (discerning godly knowledge) and did not chose the fear of the Lord.”
Job 17:9 “The righteous will hold onto his ways, and he who has clean hands will be stronger and stronger.”
The tragedy of our day is that most Christians live on second-hand revelation, that of others and not necessarily from the Spirit of the Lord speaking to them directly in their own studies and prayer. You can’t live on other people’s revelation for long.
Some examples of modern deceptions that the gullible fall for include the new Christian belief in a flat earth (not a joke – look it up). Nibiru (Planet X) is a fast growing modern internet hoax with no scientific or astronomical supporting evidence.
There are many other doctrinal heresies and imbalances out there.
We are commanded to “take heed” that we are not deceived.
You can’t hide gullibility. Eventually it will show and identify you. You will be known by the friends you keep. The gullible are always drawn to others who are in the same boat, because the same spirit is at work.
One of the main characteristics of the gullible is that they ignore the facts and the truth as they build their hobby-horse. Their hobby-horse becomes their supreme god, but it is a Trojan horse with the deception of the devil inside. They end up being blind to all but their hobby-horse.
There are no gullible, deceived people who know their Lord well and who know the word very well.
The closer you get to the living God the more clearly you see Him. You will see a Lamb change into a Lion. You will see the depths of His love and severity. You will see truth and error clearly. You will not be gullible.
The further away from our Lord you move the more difficult it is to see Him and His characteristics, His requirements and His holiness. Because you are now in relative darkness, your world now becomes a polluted, poisonous mess, and you can’t even see it. Truth and error become blurred.
It’s a great tragedy to have someone behind a pulpit present to you a Jesus that He himself can’t see because he is too far from Him on every front. So the Jesus you are presented with is manufactured by church doctrine.
The person, who knows our God well, is marked by that knowledge. He is a mystery in many ways. He is attractive and to be feared. He is humble and a strong, fighting defender of truth. He is everything but gullible!
Why do some have a propensity for gullibility? One of the reasons is that some believers have a real desire to serve the Lord and they get in there too quickly and they’re not ready yet. The Lord has not released them, so they are open to all sorts of presumptions, errors and false spirits.
Others have been plagued with rejection all their lives and now find acceptance in the family of God. But they are really there for the ulterior motive of getting rid of rejection. So they don’t mature in the Lord. They stay in realms of superficiality.
The following verses are insightful in regard to our walk with our Lord:
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; and turn their ears away from the truth.”
Colossians 2:8 “Beware lest anyone cheat you (take you captive) through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the traditions of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Messiah.”
Psalm 119:130 “The entrance of your words gives light. It gives understanding to the simple.”
1 Corinthians 3: 19 “The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. It is written – He catches the wise in their own craftiness. The Lord knows the thoughts of the (worldly) wise, that they are futile.”
Many will be shocked:
●What an incredible shock to die and immediately find out that you were on the wrong road all your life.
●What a shock to find out that the Bible was true and right all along and available to you.
●What a shock to find out that heaven was so close and is now too far.
●What a shock to find that there are no human rights and no democracy in hell and you are there forever.
●What a shock to know that you were born with a magnificent plan and purpose of God, thought out before the foundation of the world, and you rejected it in your ignorance!
●What a shock to find out that you have stolen and wasted your life on self and the devil’s world!
●What a shock to discover that you are the subject of God’s judgement without an advocate or Saviour.
●What a shock to meet up with all your very “clever” unsaved friends who have passed on.
●What a shock to find out that your close friends were all wrong and that the media, which you trusted is really the word of the devil.
●What a shock to find out that you will not rest in peace for one second.
Of course none of this needs to be your lot!
The beauty of growth and stability while the world is shaking:
When the pressure is on you will see where people’s hearts really are. It’s like the toothpaste tube law: When you squeeze it, you see what’s inside!
How to know if you are growing, being led by the Spirit of God:
●You will always be led into all truth. You will grow in a love for the truth. You will identify with the truth and others who love it. You will delight in doing it, and be free as a result.
●You will see and know many things to come, both personally and on the big, world, prophetic stage.
John 16:13 “When He the Spirit of truth has come, He will guide you into all truth...and He will show you things to come.”
●The beauty of holiness will be your lot.
Psalm 96:9 “Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before Him all the earth.”
●You will begin to see the world for what it is, and you will overcome it. You will see self and it’s “doctrines” as your enemy and you will see devils and demons.
1 John 5:4 “Whoever is born of God overcomes the world...”
As we draw nearer to our Lord, so we overcome the world more and more. Yes it’s all done already in the spirit, but not in the soul. Overcoming the world and worldliness is a most wonderful thing. It lifts you into another world!
The world system is doomed. All sin is doomed. All wickedness will soon be gone. All evil has a time-stamp on it! The terror of man and the terror of God are about to collide. Those who know their God and live in holiness are safe.
The way to victory:
2 Thessalonians 2:8-11 “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs and lying wonders, with all unrighteous deception among those who did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. For this reason God will send them strong delusion...”
Right from the beginning of this edition you would have noticed that the main problem and causes behind gullibility are foolishness, ignorance, error, naivety, and spiritual blindness. We are dealing primarily with spirits. Truth and error are spirits.
We need and must have the revelatory gifts of the Spirit at work in us to see and identify evil spiritual forces so that we can deal with them properly.
You can try until you are blue in the face to fix and deal with these issues with ordinary head knowledge. Even if you do find the answer, it will have a death-spirit over it and will not lead you into full and true deliverance.
God did not give us the gifts of the spirit to deal with the works of the devil for us to say we don’t need them.
Some idiot ministers of the gospel repeatedly say that the gifts of the Spirit were only needed in the apostolic era to establish faith and the word of God. The gifts then passed away with the last apostle. What absolute hogwash!
If ever there is a time when faith, and the truth of the word needs to be established it is now. It is under attack now more so than ever before.
By the way, the church really did well after the last apostle died and the gifts “ceased”! Without the gifts, especially the revelatory gifts, the church became hijacked by Rome, Babylon and all manner of evil. The popes all became mass murderers of note, killing millions in the inquisitions. The church without the gifts became an institution of mass control and domination, no different at all to ISIS. Without the gifts, the churches of the reformation produced over 30,000 denominations! (God’s requirement is unity!)
Without the gifts the church became a seed bed of anti-Semitism and hatred for the Jew and God’s plans for them, their city and land – just like the Spirit-less BDS Movement today and the other anti-Semitic denominations and churches.
If you are a Christian in today’s world without the gifts of the Spirit – good luck. You are going to need it in coming days. Luck will be your big helper.
My friends, to escape the trap of gullibility, you need to study your Bible well under the guiding and inspiration of the Holy Spirit. You need to turn in repentance, surrender and humility to our Lord. You need the full complement of the gifts, especially the revelatory gifts.
You need to separate yourself and study the word well for much time.
You can be free from gullibility. You must strengthen yourself, studying the word for much time and getting to know our Lord well. This will pay wonderful dividends.
The answer to gullibility is knowledge, understanding and the wisdom of God built up into your life. Draw near to Him and away from the world and its ways.
You must apply and use the gifts of the Spirit, especially the revelatory gifts.

Edition 304: March 23rd 2016
The Jewish Messiah or the Roman Christ:
The Jewish Messiah or the Roman Christ:
This year Easter is on March 27th and Passover is on April 22nd.
The two have no similarities at all when going back to their origins. Easter is 100% pagan and occult in nature, while Passover is 100% biblical. Easter is celebrated by the world at large (except the Jews) while Passover is rejected by the world, and is celebrated by the Jews and a handful of Messianic believers.
There is immense importance in the difference between Easter and Passover as you will see, and no doubt you will be shocked at my conclusion, which you will not be able to refute.
I’ll give you a clue up front, so that you can leave this website now if this makes you angry.
Easter will lead you into the loving arms of the antichrist and Passover will lead you into the loving arms of our true Lord and Saviour, the Jewish Messiah of all glory – Yeshua.
The big problem with Easter:
The word “Easter” is not in the Bible. It is in the King James Version, which is full of errors. The original word used is “Pascha” which is the Greek version of “Pesach” in Hebrew, meaning “Passover” in English.
Some claim that the use of “Easter” is correct in the King James because it refers there not to Passover by the pagan festival. Either way, Easter is unacceptable to God.
The word Easter comes from the Babylonian goddess of sex, “Ishtar”, the wife of Tammuz, killed by a wild pig. The Catholic church originally introduced “Easter” for the purpose of re-characterising the Hebraic-flavoured early church and making it hostile to the Jews. This was done in 321AD. Easter became a “floating” convocation so that the date could be moved around so that it never falls on Passover, for the same reason as above.
All the rituals of Easter come directly from the pagan, Babylonian worship of Ishtar, the sex goddess. Rabbits and eggs are fertility symbols. The eating of the Easter ham comes from the belief that a wild pig with supernatural powers killed Tammuz, the so-called husband of Ishtar, who was then resurrected.
Ishtar was always seen in the nude, accompanied by a wild pig, rabbits and eggs.
Borrowing from Satan:
The ethics of borrowing traditions or even names from occult traditions is never okay with God. You can’t take something forever cursed by God and “Christianise” it. But why would you want to anyway? Oh yes, I forgot – people prefer to trust in what Satan produces – the world has proved that.
Leviticus 19:4 Deuteronomy 28:64, Galatians 1:8
You can’t put truth and error together, they do not mix, it doesn’t work. One will have to flee.
Do you actually believe, like almost the whole world that Easter bunnies, eggs and ham have anything to do with the resurrection. The tragedy is that most ministers, pastors and church leaders perpetuate these gross errors, because they are too chicken to come against the devil’s world, or are just as blind as the world.
The image above shows some sketches of Babylonian eggs used in Baal and Ishtar worship. (Astarte is one of the names for Ishtar) The sketch on the left shows the crescent moon, then the snake and a large egg used for killing infants.
I continue to be shocked at how strongly most ministers come against those trying to get rid of these evil, occult, pagan practices in the church that are an abomination to the Lord and to the Jew. These same ministers are just as strong and vociferous on maintaining these pagan traditions in their churches.
The influence of Easter on the Jews:
1 Samuel 7:3-4 “Then Samuel spoke to all the house of Israel, saying, ‘If you return to the Lord with all your hearts, then put away the foreign gods and the Ashtoreths from among you, and prepare your hearts for the Lord, and serve Him only; He will deliver you from the hand of the Philistines.’ So the children of Israel put away the Baals and Ashtoreths and served the Lord only.’”
The verses above are profoundly insightful and important. Don’t miss the meanings. Firstly they mean exactly what they say. But who are the Ashtoreths? The name Astoreth is simply the Hebrew form of the Babylonian goddess of sex, fertility and war, Ishtar, or Easter in English. She was the supreme female counterpart of Baal also condemned in the verse. It can be demonstrated that the Catholic church is full of Baal worship today.
You can find more on this HERE.
Note in the verses above that the children of Israel had been commanded to forsake totally all worship and involvement with Ishtar, Baal and the gods of Babylon. In fact their deliverance from the Philistines (Palestinians in today’s terms) depended upon it, as it does today again.
And the church wants to bring Jews getting saved into Babylonian occult, pagan, satanic worship and the service of Easter!!
►Jewish readers please take note of Samuel’s instructions above and don’t be influenced by the traditional, Babylon-influenced church in this regard. Jewish believers don’t have anything to do with Easter, Lent, Christmas and the like. You have been in Babylonian captivity once before – don’t go there again!
►Jewish readers, you know better than all Gentiles of the conflicts on the go with the Palestinians. You need to be pure and separated from these occult things to assist in your deliverance from their coming onslaughts and attacks against you, as revealed in 1 Samuel 7:4.
Jewish readers may I summarise the verse in today’s terms? Stay removed and separate from the occult Easter and other pagan practises and God will deliver you from the Palestinians.
Deuteronomy 7:25-26 “You shall burn the carved images of their gods with fire; you shall not covet the silver and gold that is on them (Lit=decorations), do not take it for yourself, lest you be snared by it; for it is an abomination to the Lord your God. Nor shall you bring an abomination (Lit=idol) into your home, lest you be doomed to destruction like it; but you shall utterly destroy it and utterly abhor it, for it is an accursed thing.”
The verse above can be applied to the decorations and idolatry of Easter and Christmas. Burn them!
Exodus 23:13 “Be circumspect and make no mention of the name of other gods, nor let it be heard from your mouth.”
The verse above forbids the use of the names of these false gods. So Mr. Minister, when you say that you and your church don’t believe the false gods, you just use their names, what are you going to do with this verse, and others like it? Well, I’ll tell you...You must cut it out of your Bible, or obey it!
Deuteronomy 27:18 “Cursed be he who makes the blind to wander out of the way of God. Bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of our Messiah.”
The tragedy of today is that many ministers of the gospel think that they are answerable to their blind sheep. They are not! They are answerable to the living God, then to the people, and to the Jews – to make them jealous. Instead they are chasing the Jews away by perpetuating the slaughter of all things Hebraic and blessed.
Sadly it’s not just the world turning against Israel. The church is doing the very same thing by entrapment and placing pagan obstacles in front of them.
Much of the church has and is betraying our Lord again. They are betraying His work with His people. They are not going to the Jew first as commanded, or making the Jew jealous as commanded. (Romans 1:16, Romans 11:11)
Do you think you could be a betrayer of our Lord? Before you answer, remember Peter. Today all the churches of replacement theology, various forms of anti-Semitism, including the BDS Movement are modern betrayers of our Lord, and they are not repenting and coming to their senses like Peter did.
They have a lord that they think is just like them.
The Easter Jesus, like the Christmas Christ, is a Babylonian /Roman Catholic creation replacing the true Jewish Yeshua, who is directly linked in His return to the Jews, Jerusalem and the land of Israel, which the Bible declares through eternal covenant, belongs to the Jews.
If you get rid of and replace the Jewish Messiah with the Roman Christ, you also must get rid of what He is inextricably linked to, and part of, which is the land of Israel and Jerusalem.
You can’t separate the true Jewish Messiah from His plan for the Jews. To get rid of God’s plans for the Jews, the land and the city, you must create another god and get rid of the true God.
Throughout its history the Catholics have tried to get rid of the Jews. They tried through the terrible inquisitions in which they murdered millions of Jews. Every one of the so-called early church fathers, were anti-Semitic in the extreme. The reformers were all anti-Semitic as well.
Today the Catholic church and all its influences in the modern church has successfully “killed off” the Jewish Messiah and replaced Him with the Roman anti-Israel Christ.
When Jews get saved, do they come to a Jewish Messiah with Hebraic characteristics? Or when Jews get saved, do they come to a Roman Christ, rejecting the Hebraic traditions and fully filled with Gentile, Roman / Babylonian traditions?
It’s was the Pharisees who tried to kill our Lord because He did not keep their traditions their way. (John 5:18)
The Catholic pig:
The Bible talks about the Lamb of God not the ham of God. There’s a clue right there!
We know through dozens of verses that the pig (swine) is a type of the devil. We also know through dozens of verses that the lamb is a type of our Lord. The Bible commands the eating of lamb at Passover because of this type. (Exodus 12:8, Mark 14:12).
So then why at both Christmas and Easter did the Catholics stop the eating of lamb and replace it with the eating of ham (pig)? The Easter ham has pagan origins. Tammuz was killed by a wild pig. Ishtar then designated a 40-day period to mark the death of Tammuz. She proclaimed that a pig was to be eaten on the Sunday (Easter).
Tradition claims that Tammuz, killed by the wild pig, was raised from the dead on “Easter Sunday”. You can find more on this HERE.
Most are not aware that part of these occult, pagan traditions claim that the sex-goddess, Ishtar, set up a new religion using all of these occult influences together in a grand mixture, much like inter-faith today.
By removing the pure biblical Passover and replacing it with this rotten, evil pig-eating celebration, and all the other evil practices rooted in Satan, they are giving us a powerful clue as to who their Lord is.
How long was it from crucifixion to resurrection?
Was it two days and nights or three? Don’t miss the importance of this!
If as claimed by now entrenched Catholic doctrine in the convocation of Easter, our Lord was crucified on Friday afternoon and raised on Sunday, that makes two days and nights.
The Bible says that it was three days and nights (Matthew 12:40). If He was raised on the Sabbath afternoon, that would put the events of the cross on Wednesday.
The Easter timing is all wrong. The Easter Christ is all wrong, as is the Christmas Christ who was not born on December 25th. Numerous pagan gods were.
It adds more weight to the fact that the Easter, Roman Christ is a false Christ, loved and served by worldly Christians, the unsaved world and those who couldn’t care at all about truth.
There are two things in this regard that make people angry. Coming against their satanically rooted errors and traditions, and secondly, trying to replace the erroneous tradition with the true!
Satan’s big goal is not just to come against the coming of the Lord and related issues, but it is to obscure this Lord, change Him and strip away His Jewish identity so that in fact, another Jesus, a harmless lord full of error, is expected.
One of the obvious reasons for having a harmless, jolly, lord is so that the world does not need to fear him or repent. A repentance-free world is a gift to Satan, his kingdom, and hell.
It is our Jewish Messiah coming back to Israel, Jerusalem and for the Jewish people and He is coming back as the Lion of the tribe of Judah.
The replaced Yeshua:
By changing Yeshua, the true Jew of all Jews into the Gentile, Catholic, Christian, Christmas Christ, many shocking results and far-reaching effects come about which most people do not even realise or consider. You do not need to be a Catholic to have this foreign lord as your god!
By the way, the two-finger salute as seen in the images above is of satanic origin. It was used extensively by the Nazi’s as well.
Replacement theology replaces the church with Israel, believing that God is finished with the Jews. Easter replaces our Jewish Messiah with a false lord.
Do you see how well the two fit together?
Hitler and Jesus:
For argument sake, if our Lord, Saviour and King was in Germany during the Nazi era, what would Hitler have done with Him. We know that Hitler was full of evil spirits, but we also know that he was inspired by the anti-Semite, Martin Luther.
The Jews, even today believe Hitler was a Christian. We know better, but again, what would Hitler have done with our Jewish Messiah?
He would have killed Him. He would have gassed Him, or shot Him. Why would he have done that? Not because He was the Lord, but because He was a Jew! The same spirit of anti-Semitism works today in the modern Jew – hating new Nazi’s and in Islam and in much of the church.
If the church can remove the Jewishness of our Messiah they can make Him fit into all their Babylonian traditions!
Come on now, you can’t have it both ways, you replacement theologians! You must kill our Jewish Messiah. You must get rid of Him because He is still a Jew and will always be a Jew. If you are even vaguely anti-Semitic, you must kill the head, the leader, the true King of the Jews – the Jew - Yeshua!
Oh, didn’t I tell you – He is still alive! God raised that Jew from the dead. Oh, didn’t I tell you, that Jew is coming back again to the Jewish homeland – Israel.
How does that make you feel, European? How does that make you feel, Anglican, Catholic, Presbyterian, Methodist and all the other BDS, Jew haters out there? How does it make you feel to know that my Lord, Yeshua, the Jew of all Jews, is the King of the universe and you can’t kill Him or change His identity?
If you can change His identity or character, it’s a different lord, the one whom you are the god of.
The only thing you can do is create a new non-Jewish lord.
Evil churches of replacement theology, you are ultimately trying to strip Israel and Jerusalem of the Jews and the Jewish King, so you can replace Him with your false ham-eating, sex maniac king of evil!
Zechariah 13:2 “It shall be in that day, says the Lord of hosts, ‘that I will cut off the names of the idols from the land, and they shall no longer be remembered. I will also cause the prophets and the unclean spirits to depart from the land.”
The funny thing is that the New Covenant epistles (1 Corinthians 5:8) command us to “keep the feast.” (Passover.) So these Easter ministers, in effect are telling God to shut up, while they serve and do the work of the devil!
The Easter and Christmas Christ can fit in perfectly with the world and in fact with world religion. The Jewish Messiah of Passover can’t. The Jewish Passover Messiah is associated with the most violent terrible death on a cross and resurrection. The Easter Christ is associated with painted eggs, chocolate bunnies, rabbits symbolising sex and fertility, and pigs (the Easter ham.)
Passover sees a resurrection from the Lamb of God to the Lion of the tribe of Judah. There is no Lion in the Easter, Christmas Christ.
Some say Easter is a celebration of the cross and resurrection. But the key is in their two days and nights from the cross to resurrection, instead of the Biblical three days and nights. That should be a warning sign that theirs is false.
Why is the Christmas Christ and the Easter Jesus such an offence to the Jews? Simply because that is not the true Messiah! It’s a changed lord into a Catholic Christ. But beware; this Catholic Christ just might turn out to be the antichrist! The true Messiah is coming back, a Jew, a Jewish Lion!
If I had the choice of going with the flow of the masses of Christians who have been hoodwinked into believing in the Christmas / Easter Jesus, or the true Jewish Messiah believed in by a much smaller group, I would choose the latter, as I have done. I’ve not only chosen the Jewish Messiah, but I’ve rejected the Roman Christmas and Easter Christ.
“You can’t serve two masters”.
The children of Israel had a number of romances with Ishtar, Baal and other gods, each time invoking the anger and fury of God. Why do you think that it’s any different now?

“I’m coming back”
The folded napkin left by our Lord in the tomb is actually a well known Jewish custom (John 20:7). If the owner of the home did not fold the napkin, it was a message to the servants that he was finished and they could clear the table. If the master left the table and the napkin was left folded, it means that the owner is coming back!
In summary, the Roman, Easter Christ is characterised by the pig and not the lamb. He is characterised by two days from the cross to resurrection instead of three days and nights. He is characterised by fertility and sex symbols. He is characterised by numerous other Babylonian pagan practises. And above all, the Roman Easter Christ has no association with the coming salvation of the Jews, the one-state solution and the eternal city belonging to the Jews.
Most of this terrible error is so clear and in-your face, its amazing people can’t see it!
Truth lifts you up in holiness. Error always brings you down in uncleanness.
The best way to counteract a lie is with the truth. In many respects it’s a great fight because so many love the lie.
When you move further away from the cross, a great blending begins to takes place. It’s like a giant liquidiser. All religions become valid, barriers and borders begin to blur and truth becomes variable and really doesn’t matter.
The longer in time you are in a particular deception the stronger it becomes and more difficult to break down. The more you listen to some ministers the more you would think we “don’t need to take heed that we’re not deceived!”

Edition 303: March 16th 2016
Major thinking errors of today:
Major thinking errors of today:
The world is full of variable values and thoughts on just about everything. The “doctrine” of the world system is a mess of monumental proportions.
Unfortunately much of the church is also a mish-mash of mixtures of truth, error, man’s opinions, and a few of God’s opinions.
But there are some flawed thoughts, ideas, and doctrines which are deadly and will lead you further and further away from God. These giant errors have become mainstream in many cases, and unless you identify them and deal with them, they will pull you down.
When the church “borrows” or takes its lead and gets its ideas from the world, it has fallen.
Very few people today have any idea how deeply they are controlled by their poisoned thinking, which has come straight from the depths of the world system and its god.
The good news is that you can change and control your thinking! If you don’t, it will control you!
It all begins in your thoughts:
Proverbs 4:23 “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it springs the issues of life.”
The verse above uses the word “keep”. It’s an agricultural word and means to tend as a gardener would tend his garden, ripping up and removing weeds and nurturing what he wants. There are two distinct sides to the meaning of “keep”!
Proverbs 23:7 “As a man thinks in his heart so is he”
Psalm 10:4 “The wicked, in his proud countenance does not seek God; God is none of His thoughts.”
When you remove biblical principles from society, satanic forces gradually creep in. There is a slow, steady, progressive degeneration of virtues, values and behaviour. Wickedness becomes the norm. Perhaps the main reason it can’t be seen is because it’s essentially spiritual in nature.
The world can’t see or understand the things of the spirit of God or the spirit of Satan. They are blind to all these spiritual forces. This is why they’re trapped. In fact, the same principle applies to the non-spirit filled churches.
Once the Bible has been cast down, human experience gets lifted up. It becomes the new norm and sin, evil and wickedness have no judge anymore. It’s not long before sin becomes a logical part of society.
Functional blindness occurs when biblical principles are removed. Errors in thinking then become logical fallacies.
The masses are always wrong in every generation said Tozer. But I tell you, if that was true for a man who’s ministry was in its element 100 years ago, how much more today!
One of the terrible, shocking, so true, descriptions in the “perilous times” discourse, is that people become “lovers of themselves...always learning and never coming to the knowledge of the truth.” (2 Timothy 3:7).
You can learn until you are blue in the face, but you will not be learning truth while self and worldliness are on the throne!
John 14:17 “He will give you the Spirit of truth whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him for He dwells with you and will be in you.”
Don’t you sometimes wish you could shake someone so hard that their teeth rattle, when trying to get them to believe or just see the truth? Well guess what? God is about to do that! He will shake everything that can be shaken and a lot more than teeth will rattle!
His shaking will cause many to arise in fury and anger at God, and others will melt in repentance.
Isaiah 5:13 “My people have gone into captivity because they have no knowledge ...” The word “knowledge” is Strong’s H1847 meaning –“perceptive, discerning knowledge”. We call this revelation knowledge.
Isaiah 55:6-7 “Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, who will abundantly pardon.”
Major errors in modern thinking and God’s truth on the subject:
►For the sake of space, I have not written out the verses opposing the statements below. Please just hover your mouse over them and they will appear.
●God loves everyone. The Bible says: John 3:18-19.
●God would never send anyone to hell, because He is love. The Bible says: Luke 16:23, John 3:36 Revelation 20:15, 21:8.
●At the end of the day everyone will be saved because all people are essentially good. The Bible says: Revelation 20:12.
●Jesus has the nature of a lamb. The Bible says: Jeremiah 25:38.
●Do not judge because the Bible says don’t judge. The Bible says: John 7:24, 1 Corinthians 2:15. (The verse saying “don’t judge” applies to personal pride and putting other down. It has nothing to do with judging doctrine, truth and between right and wrong.)
●The feasts (Passover etc) are Jewish and not for Christians. The Bible says: 1 Corinthians 5:8, Acts 18:21.
●We don’t need to be concerned about Bible prophecy, because everything will continue as normal, as it always has. The Bible says: 2 Peter 3:3-4, 1 John 2:17, 1 John 3:3, Revelation 3:3.
●All religions are valid and have a legitimate claim to salvation and God’s presence. The Bible says: Acts 4:12, John 3:3, John 14:6
●Capital punishment is archaic and invalid today as a form of punishment. The Bible says: Romans 13:4, Genesis 9:6.
●Corporal punishment of kids is invalid today for the same reason. The Bible says: Proverbs 13:24. Proverbs 23:13, Proverbs 19:18.
●Homosexuality is okay because God made gays that way and it’s their choice. The Bible says: Romans 1:26-28 (Homosexuals were not made that way, they have given themselves over to demonic forces, which they can’t see or know exist. Three times in these verses it says they have been “handed over.”)
●Human rights are sacrosanct, because the human is supreme. The Bible says: Malachi 2:17, Isaiah 5:20.
●The Palestinians have a legitimate right to part of Israel and Jerusalem. The Bible says: Ezekiel 36:2, 5, Genesis 17:19-21, Ezekiel 35:5-6.
●Dividing the land of Israel and Jerusalem will bring world peace. The Bible says: Joel 3:2, Zechariah 12:2-3.
●God will not destroy the world in judgement. The Bible says: Psalm 21:8-12.
●An inscription at the UN in New York says, “They will beat their swords into plowshares and there spears into pruning hooks. Nation shall not lift up sword against nation neither shall they learn war anymore” (Isaiah 2:4). So, world peace is coming! The Bible says: Joel 3:9-10 (The Isaiah verse occurs in the Millennium.)
●Our politicians, scientists, economists will save us from economic collapse, a global water and food crisis, species extinction, global warming and the like. The Bible says: Hebrews 12:26.
●With all our modern technology, education and invention, the world is a much better place and getting better. The Bible says: Isaiah 60:12, Nahum 1:6, 1 John 5:19, 2 Timothy 3:13, Isaiah 24:4-6.
●The world will save itself bringing in world peace because it will ultimately come to its senses. The Bible says: 2 Timothy 3:13, Colossians 2:20, Isaiah 13:11-13, 1 Thessalonians 5:3, Jeremiah 30:5.
●The mass media, the entertainment world, celebrities are all our educators. The Bible says: Ecclesiastes 7:21, Isaiah 30:1.
●You should not have old-fashioned fear of God. He’s your jolly friend. The Bible says: Proverbs 1:7, 19:23, Psalm 25:14.
●The world can have peace if only nations would come together. The Bible says: Acts 17:26 Revelation 6:4.
●Easter and Christmas are Christian convocations. The Bible says: Jeremiah 2:10, Deuteronomy 12:30-31, Exodus 23:13.
●We come from the evolution of apes. The Bible says: John 1:3, Genesis 1:26-27, 2:7. By the way, if we come from the evolution of apes, how come we still have apes?
Luke 16:15 "You are those who justify yourselves among men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God."
The wide road or the narrow road:
Some very stupid people, mostly intellectuals, think that because they believe and accept all religions, the truth will be somewhere in the mix and they’ll be okay! It’s a narrow road my friends and there is only one way.
Bible prophecy is the great “I told you so”! Tragically, this will be a realisation that will come too late for most. You can ignore it, and cast it down, but, surprise, surprise, it will not ignore you and it will cast you down in wrath and vengeance!
True, real Christianity is not another religion or some philosophy; it is the very essence of life, eternal life! All religions are based on law and works. They try to make some angry God smile down on you if you obey enough laws and are more good than bad.
True, real Christianity is based on faith and grace – all a free gift. The true believer is one who has been born-again. The work of the cross and shed blood of Messiah are the key “ingredients” of the new life in the new family of God. You can only be born into this family.
Too many are feeding on a cursed diet, which is thinking that they can please God by being good and keeping laws and performing works. That is a diet full of poison and death. You can only begin to please God once you are His through birth.
A slave of the devil or a slave of God!
Everyone on this planet has their thinking influenced, by the machinery of Satan’s world or the word of the living God.
When you cast down the word of God, you are casting down the 27% of it that constitutes prophecy. You are now the champion and architect of your own “prophecy” and opinions. They become elevated in your thinking and sacrosanct. Self is now elevated to the place of a god. But you are not in la-la, happy land. You are now a slave of your god that you can’t see or even believe exists!
You are a slave, a servant, a workhorse, a skivvy, a toiler, and a prisoner of Satan.
Jeremiah 6:10 (Amp) “To whom shall I speak and give warning, that they may hear? Their ear is uncircumcised, (never brought into covenant with God, or consecrated to His service), and they cannot hear or obey. Behold the word of the Lord has become to them a reproach and the object of their scorn. They have no delight in it.”
Do you see what an incredible verse this is above? How amazing is this! Do you see what it is saying? Do you know why most people can’t see the truth and the warnings of God? Read it again!
End-time prophecy includes many wars and conflicts as we are well aware, but perhaps the biggest end-time war is for the hearts and minds of people. Satan wants your thoughts. He wants to control and dominate you. He wants to bring you into his domain.
He already has the unsaved, so the real big battle is for the minds of believers. If he can get at your thinking, he has an inroad to your very spirit, where he can do immense damage.
Most of the big end-time events won’t suddenly just appear out of the woodwork (although some will), they will have been brewing in the minds of political leaders, economic leaders, religious leaders, military men and the like for a long time already.
Imagine spending your entire life fashioning yourself after the ways of the world and endearing yourself to its opinions, and then finding out when you step into eternity that you were on the wrong, tragic, fiery road all your life!
1 Corinthians 3:19 “The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.”
2 Timothy 2:7 “Consider what I say, and may the Lord give you understanding in all things.”
Why is the truth so important? People generally don’t get deceived and led astray by error in one big shot. Most times it creeps in slowly. But it begins by stepping onto a slippery slope. This is why it is so important not to tolerate or allow any error into your life.
To be led, informed and influenced by the living God and His word is revolutionary, radical and will make you odd in the world’s eyes, but a champion in God’s eyes forever!
To be led, informed and influenced by the godless mass-media is a great, fearful evil that will leave you full of regret forever. To be a slave of the devil and his word imprisons you in darkness and kills your freedom. It makes you dirty and unholy.
To go into this immediate future before us without an active, alive relationship with our Lord and His word is a terrifying thought.
Free speech comes from free thinking. There is nothing wrong with either when under the influence of God’s word and the Spirit of God. Released from that, people fall under the dominion of their own heart, which, as the Bible says “is desperately wicked.” Freedom gradually becomes tyranny, oppression, bondage and despotism.
The truth of God’s word inspired and enlightened by the Holy Spirit and alive in your heart is safe, secure, producing sheltered protection, in these evil days.
Becoming a slave of God, imprisoned by His word, sets you truly free and gives you real liberty and victory.
The greatest cause of all these errors in thinking:
Isaiah 59:14-15 “Justice and judgement are turned away and righteousness stands afar off; for truth has fallen in the street and honesty has been outlawed. So, truth fails and he who departs from and shuns evil, becomes a prey. Then the Lord saw it and it displeased Him that there was no more judgement.”
The verses above (compiled from a few translations) speaks so succinctly to today’s world. It shows the effects of casting down the truth (Bible). The glorious, powerful force of judgement is now removed and a new evil comes into operation. Those who resist this new evil and don’t participate in the new godless world become the prey of the evil forces.
It’s not so much the removal of the Bible from society that is the problem; it is removal of the authority of God, which is essentially what the Bible is. When you remove the authority of God, you are left with the authority of demon possessed political leaders, intellectuals, educators, criminals and liars in authority.
The removal of biblical values from society can be so clearly seen in the modern entertainment world. You can see how Satan’s gradualism has perverted the world as the word of God is cast down.
The removal of biblical principles in the name of separation of church and state has produced ungodly government, ungodly constitutions, ungodly politicians and authority systems based on the evil heart of man.
This removal of the things of God has resulted in the Bible being perceived as irrelevant. The end result is total ignorance of the Bible. The most shocking thing ever is the absolute rank ignorance of the Bible, interpreted by the Spirit of God, in the pulpits of the modern church.
Very few pastors, ministers and leaders in the church today have studied their Bible thoroughly. They have studied their familiar verses so they can all say the same thing. They have studied what others say about the Bible. They have studied their church doctrine through those doctrinal glasses.
They perpetuate their errors and man-made theologies, except of course for a whole bunch of ministries flowing with the Spirit of the Lord.
Another thing worth considering is that because the preaching of the law has all but disappeared today, people don’t even know what sin is. I’m not suggesting coming under the law, but the proper use of it, which is the schoolmaster pointing to the answer as a result of the problem – sin.
What should be done to bring correction?
Corrected thinking is the answer:
Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind...” The original word, “renewing” used here also means “exchanging”. We are to exchange our thinking for His!
Colossians 3:2 “Set your mind on things above and not on things of this earth.”
The Bible says that we can control our thoughts. It commands us to cast down thoughts and exultations against Him and His word (2 Corinthians 10:5).The Bible commands us to “think on these things” which are thoughts of truth, purity (holiness) excellence and the like. (Philippians 4:8)
So here we have both the negative and positive. We are told to cast down wrong thinking and to think according to God’s truth. Don’t tell me you can’t control your thoughts. Yes you can. The good news is that the more you do it, the sooner you become a master of your thinking and enter a new world of holiness.
The very first thing people serious about the Lord need to do is separate themselves in prayer and fasting to study and read their entire Bible from cover to cover, without the influence of church doctrine.
They need to restore the virtues and values of the Bible without church doctrine mixed in. They need to repent before God. They need to become “arrested” and “imprisoned” by the liberty of the full word of God.
There is no shortcut to sanctification and this also applies to the leadership. Most are too busy to obey and follow our Lord and others want it as quickly as pop-up toast or some modern digital experience.
Yes you can change your thinking, which will change your actions, but it’s nothing but Buddhism if it’s not Spirit led, and inspired.
Is your Lord a Lion and a Lamb? Is He wonderful and terrible?
Is your Lord full of love and full of judgement? If so you are safe.
Is your pastor, minister or leader a lion and a lamb?
I’ve always been a lover of all things beautiful including art, music, architecture, environment, animals, nature, landscape and the like. I’ve always had a hatred for destroyers of beauty and since 1980 a specific hatred for destroyers of biblical truth which is the only way to true holiness.
One day I know I will be overjoyed at the destruction of the destroyers of this beauty, and all of God’s creation, truth and all holiness.
Zechariah 14:9 The Lord shall be King over all the earth.”
Psalm 149:4 “He will beautify the humble with salvation.”
Philippians 2:15 “Will you become blameless and innocent children of God without fault in a crooked and perverse generation among whom you shine as lights in the world?”
