Psalm 78:31-34 “The wrath of God came against them...in spite of this they still sinned, and did not believe in His wondrous works, therefore their day He consumed in futility and their years in fear. When He slew them, then they sought Him; and they turned and sought diligently for God.”
Isaiah 5:20 “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness; who put sweet for bitter and bitter for sweet! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes.”
Jeremiah 23:22 “If they had stood in My counsel, and had caused My people to hear My words, they would have turned them away from their evil ways and doings.”
1 Corinthians 2:15 “He who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one.”

21st February 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Generally speaking firstly:
I have shortened the main editions from an average of 3500 words to about 2500 words. This makes for easier reading without skipping sections, which people do, if it’s long. The Sabbath Report remains at about 1000 words on average. I have also increased the font size slightly.
Don’t miss Edition 510, the new one, entitled “Falling away from what?” I have some exciting material on prophecy and the rapture for you amongst some other things.
Dealing with Bible prophecy is very exciting and extremely important, but we also need to know how to sit down, shut up, and wait as well. (Believe me, I don’t like waiting either.)
The problem is if we don’t wait when required, we can get bent out of shape with all sorts of strange, untrue revelations and presumptions which are way off. It’s easy to get ahead of things and into trouble.
Right now we are in the waiting room on the railway siding. What’s that puffing sound I hear getting closer?
Okay, let’s get into today’s message:
How to go to hell - It’s very easy!
■Firstly, you must believe that there is no hell, and that even if there is, a loving God would not send anyone there. That’s your first giant step to hell.
■Stay ignorant of the truth and deny that God-created little voice in your heart saying that He and His word is truth. – “Suppress the truth in your unrighteousness.” (Romans 1:18)
■Use your human reasoning to get rid of your conscience.
■Exalt and enthrone yourself and your opinions as a god.
■Deny and cast down the essential, truth of the cross of Calvary and the resurrection.
■Deny the fact that God calls sin – sin! Be a law unto yourself, with your own worldly-wise ways. Grey out biblical light and merge it with darkness.
■Believe that you are very important, and in no need of repentance and correction. Just stay as you are – you can be wonderfully successful and happy on your own – you can do it.
■Believe that God, (if there is a God) will save you because you are more good than bad.
■Deny the existence of Satan and his power. Deny the existence and influence of demons.
■Deny the truth that salvation is exclusive and only for those who are truly born-again of the Spirit of God. While you’re about it, you might as well deny Yeshua, God, and the Holy Spirit.
■Obey the voices and actions of the masses. Be informed by them. Follow their traditions customs, ways, entertainment, fun and doings. Be one of the crowd and don’t rock the boat.
■Believe the mass-media and surrender to their authority.
■Believe that all religions are equal with their own legitimate way to the same God.
■Give yourself to ministers who themselves are not born again and Spirit filled.
■Believe that you’re a Christian because you went to church on Easter and Christmas.
■Learn how to lie to yourself, trust in yourself, and believe the lie that you don’t need a Saviour.
■Live for the here and now, and focus all your attention on money and materialism. Live for “me now”.
■Love the world and it’s wisdom and serve it unquestioningly.
■Believe in and exalt all gods, read your horoscopes, uplift your fortune teller, clairvoyant and witchdoctors.
■Flaunt your sexual adventures, practises, and beliefs. Give yourself over to lust.
■Deny God’s definition of family and in fact God’s definition of everything!
■Learn how to hate Jews and real Christians.
■Thrive on pride and live a carefree life. Live in external peace getting rid of anything that convicts your conscience.
Here are some of the matching verses: James 4:4, Romans 12:2, Mark 8:36, John 16:33, 1 John 2:16 and many more.
How to get to heaven:
●Only the love of God demonstrated upon the cross can save you. ●Take up your own cross daily once His cross has saved you. ●Recognise that you are incapable of saving yourself, a sinner in need of repentance. ●Call on our Lord in all sincerity, to save you. ●Be baptised in water and in the Spirit. ●Reject all your rubbish that has kept you away from God. ●Make it your determined effort to follow our Lord, believe and do His word. ●Fully surrender to the truth of the Bible. It is true even if no one in the world believes it! ●Set your heart to love and get to know our Lord more and more. ●Get into fellowship with like minded believers. ●Ignore the rejection of friends of the world. ●Take up and use your spiritual gifts and weapons. ●Write down your vision, progress and spiritual goals and desires. ●Do something memorable, dramatic and demonstrative at your major spiritual milestones. ●Be different.
Love the Lord with all your heart mind soul and strength.
Pray for our Lord to cleanse and re-sensitise your conscience. Then Your renovated conscience, in tune with the Holy Spirit will lead you and approve you before God.
The most incredible thing is that when you get saved, God does not count or remember any of your sins. The slate is clean so that you can move forward unhindered and in confidence. But for those who remain unsaved, they are dead in their sins, weighed down and fully condemned forever. (2 Corinthians 5:19, John 3:16-19)
The greatest tragedy of all is that most people carry on living for self. without even questioning which road they're on!
New and old believers, welcome to glory and eternity.
Edition 504: January 14th 2020.
What’s really going on?
These are words of life!
The ticking clock is counting down; crunch time is coming, as your day of reckoning approaches. For whom does the bell toll? For whom is the alarm sounding and the shofar blowing?
It is time for your final preparations. At zero hour it is too late! At the point of no return, there is no turn-around; there is no recount, redo, remake or retake! Be ready now. Be holy!
Those who are wise will be repentant- ready. They will have a glorious flying start! Their words will have spoken and will be known by God, heaven and hell.
Don’t trivialise or underestimate your importance, value, and worth to His kingdom.
So, what’s it all about?
Why is everyone getting so hot under the collar? Why are the nations raging? Why all the new enmities and why are the world’s masses rebelling like never before? (Psalm 2:1)
It’s Satan’s attempt to preserve his world and his people his way. It’s Satan’s attempt to rise above God and receive the world’s worship. It’s the battle between truth and deceptive error. It’s kingdoms in conflict coming to a climax. It’s the depravity of the heart of man trying to dominate. It’s a world of demonic forces and powers fighting their last stand.
It’s all about the last days of the church and the approaching first days of Israel as God’s replacement of the church, as His evangelists in the tribulation period.
What is going on is the dumbing down and blinding of the masses to Satan’s works by Satan, as his time begins to run out. (Revelation 12:12)
What’s going on is the preparations for an enslaved world, controlled by the antichrist.
The devil’s quotes for today:
These quotes were said ages ago, but are so very relevant for the world today. They were all spoken by the devil himself in disguise!
They are all aimed at the ultimate goal of Satan which is to kill, steal and destroy, by creating a utopian world of “peace”.
Firstly, Socialism and communism are the same. They intend producing a common, society of equality, which would bring world peace – so they would have you believe!
The main architects of socialism and communism were, Marx, Lenin, and Stalin. Today, all the liberal left wing parties maintain a social agenda. Governments utilising massive state control are communist or a mix of socialism and communism.
“The goal of socialism is communism”. (Lenin)
Hitler said that the goals of Marxism, Leninism Stalinism will be our “achievable goal.”
“The devil is on my side” (Stalin)
“Communism must abolish biblical truth and morality.” (Communist Manifesto)
“Communism must destroy churches in favour of atheism, the opium of the people” (Marx).
“Communism must destroy all systems in which godly authority is instituted, so that the state can become supreme and all controlling.” (Lenin)
“Communism must destroy all hierarchy’s morality, tradition, and truth driving towards moral and social desolation, upon which the state seizes control.” (Lenin)
“The abolition of private property ownership, independent nations and independent thinking, including education of the masses is included in the goal of communism.”
“Conflict leads us forward” (Karl Marx)
►In effect both communism and socialism is the practice social, economic, and political failure by the demon possessed.
As you can see from these quotes, we are now in a world where many of these things, in various forms are now being implemented in many nations – right before our eyes.
So, at the end of it all, these systems are designed to bring about powerful executive control of the masses by a few. It is presented as a utopian dream, which is a giant lie, only believed by the ignorant or demon possessed! It is an offense to God and His ways.
The Bible predicts an end-time world socialistic government of mass control (Isaiah 10:13-14) Why this? It is because the masses don’t know any better. They have been dumbed down and blinded.
Taking from the rich and giving to the poor is the idealism of economic fools. It never works. Giving to the poor and needy is good, but always from a voluntary point of view, not a central, state-controlled thing.
Socialism seduces the spiritually ignorant, and in the end produces slavery to the state. Socialism will lift you up so that you can fall very far down!
Socialism promises peace and happiness but produces disaster and turmoil. The reason is because it is of the “father of lies.”
Ecclesiastes 10:2-3 “A wise man’s heart is at his right hand, but a fool’s heart is at his left. Even when a fool walks along the way, he lacks wisdom, and he shows everyone that he is a fool.”
What an amazing identification of the right and liberal left politically speaking!
Now we come to the god of the modern world – democracy.
The lie of democracy, that almost everyone falls for all the time, is that a majority of people are right. But what is right or wrong? If the absolute guide – the Bible has been removed from society, there is no right or wrong then, except in your own amoral, blinded mind’s eye.
Democracy is fine and works in a nation under God, where His values are still found.
At the end of the day, godless democracy will fall and fail – big time. The nations will vote Satan and his puppet, the antichrist into world power!
Democracy is actually a threat to the world. Satan is the god of the world and he is using democracy as a smoke-screen and shield to bring himself to power as the antichrist. He will not share rulership with anyone when he comes to world power! He will devour democracy.
Socialism and communism and democracy, ultimately has to be anti-Semitic, because God’s call for Israel is not to assimilate into the nations. God will deal with Israel separately and in a different manner to the world. In a sense Israel is going to become God’s new “church.”
Numbers 23:9 “From the hills, I behold him, (Israel) a people dwelling alone, not reckoning itself among the nations.” Zechariah 10:9
The mass media:
The media is Satan’s great tool for fools. It has speedily evolved into a monster of manipulation. It never used to be so spiritually charged and evil in earlier days.
Propaganda is a triumphant tool to seduce and control the ignorant, and properly ill-informed. So who wields the tool? It is the master of mankind and the world - Satan.
When you listen to Satan, you always lose your free will and choice. He rules you like a slave driver. Choice is under attack. When your choice becomes hijacked, you become a tool of the tool-wielder.
In the kingdom of God there is: Peace, righteousness and joy. It is as “valuable as a pearl”. It is not of the world, and it shall “break all other kingdoms in pieces.” (Various verses)
In the kingdom of the world there is: Sin, unrighteousness, unholiness, distress, disquiet, sorrow and more.
Yet the media attacks and belittles the things of God’s kingdom and exalts the things of the world’s kingdom!
So, what’s really going on with the mass-media?
The age-old Hitler-used principle “Repeat the lie often enough and the masses will believe it,” is the principle of the media today.
Satan makes you stupid, and he is working overtime to make the masses a gullible, defenceless instrument of his choosing. The price you pay for this is unimaginably high!
The easiest people to dupe are the spiritually ignorant, with no knowledge of God. The only way to be truly spiritually wise and ready for the kingdom, is to be grounded in the word of God.
Now is the time to know what’s going on, or at least the basics. It is vitally important to know the author and interpreter of the Bible - the Holy Spirit. These are the days of massive, growing ignorance fuelled by Satan.
Satan’s attacks on the true, awake church will not succeed, but his attacks on the spineless, unarmed, unprepared church will succeed! He is using many methods to neutralise the church and make it ineffective.
Watering down the gospel and making it appealing to the masses is occurring, and is the very reason for the decline of Christianity in the West.
Much of the church is sinking because it is being re-characterised as it loses its shining light of holiness in favour of all manner of evil.
The devil can’t stamp the true church out, but he can kill its fruits of holiness.
The rejection and persecution of Christians is primarily for the reason of their fruits of holiness. It is Satan’s attempt to strip Christians of their godly identity. This makes them fit in with the world.
It really is this holiness in you that the world hates with a passion. It’s their way of attacking our Lord. Holiness is a product of God, of the new-birth. Unrighteousness and sin is a product of fallen man and Satan himself.
Romans 6:22-23 “Now being made free from sin, and becoming servants of God, you have fruit unto holiness and the end everlasting life...”
►Holiness is the ground in which you grow in grace and glory!
Today we are in a world of unholy Christians – sold out to the spirit of the world, with a few verses added to give the right appearance.
Worldlifying churchianity is what is really on the go now. Much of the falling church is now identified with, and has more in common with sin than holiness.
Their yapping, prancing pastors and leaders have taught them that materialism is central.
The biggest idol in the world is the love of the world. This why the Bible says friendship with the world is enmity with God. You cannot be a friend of God and the world!
The warnings from God always come before judgement! Much of the church has ignored he warnings for too long. “Judgement begins in the house of God.” (1 Peter 4:17)
Do you want to know if you are on the right road? Just look at how many are on the road of mixture and how many stand separated. The right road is the narrow road with few on it. The wide road to destruction is the dark road in which the lights have gone out!
Are you amongst the Christian majority? If so, you are on the wrong, wrong road.
In fact a much more telling and deadly issue is the fact that those on the wide road have left the cross aside! They walk right past it every day instead of picking it up! The cross of Calvary together with your own daily cross, are the instruments of true, separate holiness and discipleship.
God wants you to be separate from worldliness in as many ways as possible. The devil and his wolves in pulpits want you to be joined together with worldliness – to fit in well and comfortably.
As a true, on fire believer, you will be known by your fruits, which are far different to those of the world. You will be a glorious, shining oddball. And yes you will be creating “sparks” which will set some on fire for our Lord, and cause great trouble with others!
Job5:7 “Man is born into trouble, as the sparks fly upwards.”
Many unsaved people that get to know you will hate you because you are a reflection of what they are not and can’t be no matter how hard they try.
Israel and the sign of earthquakes:
There are so many end-time signs, but there is one with a unique message to it. It is little known, but of great importance. It is the sign of earthquakes.
The earthquake sign is primarily for Israel and signals her repentance and salvation, when the shofar sounds at the twinkling of sunset.
“The stones will cry out” (Luke 19:40) and the earth will shake. The world will know that Israel’s dry bones are arising and coming to life.
God often uses earthquakes as a sign. Most are simply a natural phenomenon. But earthquakes, especially mentioned in the Bible have prophetic meaning.
Let’s have a look at this most interesting situation:
●When Israel left Egypt for the Promised Land in the great Exodus, an earthquake struck just as Moses was instructed to go up Mount Sinai.
Exodus 19:18 “Mount Sinai was completely in smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire. Its smoke ascended like the smoke of a furnace and the whole mountain quaked greatly.”
●At the crucifixion an earthquake struck, as the temple veil was split from top to bottom:
Matthew 27:51 (Amp) “At once, the curtain veil of the sanctuary of the temple, was torn in two from the top to the bottom. The earth shook and the rocks were split.”
●At the resurrection, an earthquake struck:
Matthew 28:2 (Mary came to the tomb) “And behold there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone from the door and sat on it.”
●At the dispensation change from the church age to the tribulation an earthquake strikes:
Revelation 6:12 (At tribulation start) “I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair and the moon became like blood.”
●At the start of the great war of Gog and Magog (WW111) an earthquake strikes:
Ezekiel 38:18-19 “It will come to pass at the same time, when Gog comes against the land of Israel, says the Lord God, that My fury will show in My face. For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath, I have spoken. Surely in that day there will be a great earthquake in the land of Israel.”
This earthquake occurs when Israel turns to the Lord en masse (Ezekiel 38:23, 39:7, 29)
●As the two Jewish witnesses are raised from the dead and raptured to heaven at some point beyond mid-tribulation, there will be a great earthquake:
Revelation 12:13 “They (two witnesses) heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them ‘Come up here.’ And they ascended to heaven in a cloud and their enemies saw them. In the same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. In the earthquake seven thousand men were killed, and the rest were afraid and gave glory to God of heaven.”
•We see an earthquake strike early in the Exodus as the children of Israel travel to the Promised Land. •We see an earthquake strike as our Lord was crucified. •We see an earthquake strike as the temple veil, which symbolises blindness on the Jews, is torn from top to bottom. •We see an earthquake strike as the resurrection occurred. •We see an earthquake strike as the church age ends and the tribulation begins. (Time of Jacob’s – Israel’s trouble) •We see an earthquake strike as the war of Gog and Magog gets underway, which is when the Jews begin to be saved en masse. •Finally we see an earthquake strike as the Jewish two witnesses are raptured.
All of this paints an incredible, amazing picture, of which you should take note! Do you see it? I hope you do!
►For Israel, the Promised Land is a type of their coming salvation. The cross is the only way of salvation and not the temple or law. The resurrection makes it all totally supernatural. The tribulation start, the war of Gog and Magog, and salvation of the Jews all occur in very close proximity to each other.
These events are all marked by an earthquake.
Gog and Magog – not yet:
Don’t jump the gun. I see many are saying that we are in the Gog and Magog war of Ezekiel 38 & 39 (WW111). We are not. We are in the build-up to it. We are in the forerunner period.
There are some very distinctive evidences of WW111 in the Bible. They are not here yet.
Egypt is always a type of the world and a type of Israel in bondage. “Let My people go” out of Egypt to the Promised Land, is a type of Israel’s salvation still to come.
Who starts WW111 (Gog and Magog)? It is not President Trump! It is God!! He (God) will put “hooks in the jaws” of Russia and her allies and draw them into the conflict. Note that it was God who drew Pharaoh and his armies to their death. It is God who starts WW111!
Pharaoh eventually did yield to Moses and agreed to “Let My people go.” That is a type of the antichrist’s peace treaty. God hardened Pharaoh’s heart so that he would go after the Jews to kill them after he had let them go. The antichrist will make a peace treaty with Israel, and then turn against them to kill them.
As Pharaoh and his armies were killed in the Red Sea, so the armies of the world will meet their fate too in a sea of blood, surrounding Jerusalem.
Yes we are seeing the convergence of, and aligning of nations and preparations for this great war, and it will begin suddenly, but it’s not just yet.
What is really going on?
God’s glory is arising, the world is falling, the counterfeit church is sinking; the media is becoming Satan’s mouthpiece. The true Christians are getting stronger and stronger even in weakness.
►You can’t kill the resurrected Lord and His word. You can only kill yourself trying! In fact, if the Bible is the word of God, it is the only resurrected book in history and you can’t kill it!
Only those with a small, insignificant God can criticise the things of God and His word.
We must have our spiritual eyes opened to see into the spirit realm, to see demonic attacks, to see the operations of the kingdom of the world, and to see into the word of God, to see prophetic things to come, and the timing of those things, and to see that we are the victors.
We must have spiritual eyes and ears in the face of the anti-God onslaught.
►The truth will set you free”, says the Bible. But the truth in the devil’s hands will bring you into bondage in the name of freedom!
In summary: The devil operates through the self life or sin nature of man, the world-system, and the demonic. All three are arising in their last stand of intensified rebellion against the living God, before their ultimate demise.
The god of this world and its media-voice are trying to strike a death blow to the godly principles of a nation under God.
Heaven is coming soon. Keep your spiritual eyes tuned in.
Think about this:
In heaven there will be no relationship breakdowns, no stress, anxiety, or trouble. There will be no loneliness, and no purposelessness. There will be no equality, except in that we all have the same foundation. We will be as different as the stars are from each other forever. We will be known by our differing brightness.
Be mightily blessed and stand strong.
I took these two pictures in the beautiful Namib Desert.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 503: January 7th 2020.
These are words of life!
How quick is “suddenly”? What does it mean? Why suddenly? Who will be suddenly affected?
These are some of the exciting issues for this edition.
•Sudden destruction is coming to this world – very soon. •The rapture will be sudden. •The salvation of Israel and her coming holiness and peace will be sudden. •Peace will come suddenly to the world.
A fuse is short, small and insignificant, but when it goes off it creates a very sudden response.
My main message to you from the Lord for the year ahead is two-fold. It will be a year of great growth in the Lord in the short time left for some, and it will be a year of fierce, terrible times for the unsaved.
As I look back to the year just passed, I am eternally grateful and thankful to our Lord for bringing us forward into so many new things, and a greater depth of experience with Him. And of course for all the wonderful and incredible mercies He has bestowed on us.
As I look ahead, I get a feeling of great excitement and also of ominous, foreboding, and impending disaster for the world. The divide between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of the world is widening, and it must be so.
I must tell you that most times, when I sit down to write these editions and reports I have a tingling fear in my heart. It’s here now – big time!
Sudden signs of the times:
Right now we are seeing the Middle East situation turn explosive quickly. For a long time, Iran has believed that the US is the great Satan and Israel is the little Satan. In Iran’s perverted view, the US and Israel are directly linked – joined at the hip.
But at the push of one button, a US strike killed an Iranian commander, more strikes followed and the world, Israel in particular, awaits Iran’s response. It all happened suddenly!
The Bible lists signs of the times and signs in the run up to the tribulation period. Some of the signs have been brewing and stewing for a while, but many will come upon the world suddenly.
- Economic collapse will occur so that the antichrist can seize and control the world economy. This sort of thing normally comes about gradually, but all financial markets are based on confidence, fear or greed and those can disappear in a flash.
- Natural upheavals have been increasing over the years, but these also have a very sudden element to them. Floods, wildfires, disease, famine, earth’s upheavals and more, are examples.
- Moral decay comes in slowly, but is escalating now like never before.
- Wars and conflicts often occur after a lengthy build up, but also often blast onto the stage suddenly.
- The gospel is going to all nations of the world, as prophesied, much faster than ever before. The Prophetic Scroll is evidence of that.
- A large part of the church is falling into gross error and deception very quickly, and many are simply falling away completely. Please bear in mind that God’s grace can be removed suddenly from a person a church or even an entire nation.
Psalm 73:17 “When I went into the sanctuary, I understood their end...O how they are brought to desolation in a moment. They are consumed with terrors.”
This profound verse above has one very important element to it: It is that we only really see the end of all these things when we are in God’s sanctuary, or Spirit-led word. Otherwise it’s just multitudes of man’s opinions – all dead, meaningless and boring.
Sudden war and destruction:
Since the killing of the evil Iranian commander, Soleimani, by the US, world war and conflict is suddenly a lot closer.
Hatred poisons you. It makes you bitter, which spreads to others. But worse is that it blinds you too, because it is a form of pride, which always blinds you.
Islam and its proxy nations like Iran are blinded by their pride. Their pride wants to put down all others who won’t submit to the ultimate goal of Islamic world domination.
Iran has declared its desire numerous times to wipe Israel off the map. In all of these situations, the nations have sat back and done nothing. The stupid leaders of many nations now say that the Iran nuclear deal is under threat or dead.
How dumb can you be? If Iran had any intention of ceasing its nuclear aspirations it would have simply done so. What is there to negotiate about? The EU and UN are blind in their arrogant deception.
Here are some possible responses from Iran: They will attempt to hurt the US. This may be through oil wars in the Straits of Hormuz, or oil tankers or refineries being hit. This would send the oil price way higher and potentially cripple the world economy.
But Iran knows well that it can get at “the great Satan” by hitting the “little Satan” – Israel, which is now a target.
This may develop into the early stages of the Ezekiel 38 & 39 war of Gog and Magog. (More on that soon, with some surprises!)
The big thing here is that all of this has and is happening suddenly!
By the way, the war of Isaiah 17 in which Damascus is destroyed, culminates suddenly, in one day (Isaiah 17:14)
The sudden rapture:
The rapture will take in a “moment, in the twinkling of an eye.” (1 Corinthians 15:52)The word “moment” is the Greek word “atomo” and means and atomic moment, or the shortest division of time possible.
That’s spectacular news for those on the receiving end, but why so quickly?
►Firstly it’s to make a clear distinction between the rapture and the Second Coming, which will be a much slower process, with all eyes on our Lord’s return, just as our Lord left.
►Secondly, it is to end the church dispensation as quickly as it started, making a distinction between dispensations, separating them and their members from each other.
Here is the verse showing the sudden start of the church age at Pentecost:
Acts 2:2-4 “Suddenly, there was a sound from heaven as a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house and they were filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.”
The rapture of Elijah happened suddenly:
2 Kings 2:11 “Then it happened, as they continued and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.”
A lightning fast rapture will leave behind everyone who is not ready beforehand!
The church age began on the day of Pentecost with the outpouring of the Spirit, the arrival of tongues and the gifts of the Spirit.
Tongues are in fact a unique identification and characteristic of the entire church age.
1 Corinthians 13:8 “Love never fails, but where there are prophesies, they will fail (dissipate), where there are tongues, they will cease, and where there is knowledge it will vanish away.”
Here is the interesting thing: The word “cease” in the verse above, means to suddenly cease or come to an end. The word “vanish” refers to a gradual vanishing away over some time. So tongues, the sign of the church age will end suddenly, with the church in rapture, while the others continue into the tribulation period.
That’s a somewhat obscure, but amazing indication of a pre-tribulation rapture.
Suddenly – the new you:
The word, “sudden” carries the connotation of the unexpected and without warning.
Often times, death comes suddenly. In my days as a journalist / photographer covering wars and conflicts, I often saw instant death right before me. I always wondered where those people had gone! For most, it would have been too late to make right with God.
Even when death comes slowly, so many people do not make right with God.
But for true believers, death marks an instant sudden, supernatural, miraculous and glorious transformation into an eternal state beyond imagination.
It will not take an age for you to acquire eternal youth! You will be changed in an atomic moment. You will then be eternally young, fully healthy, with no impurities, fully complete and with full knowledge of all things. You will have choice and free-will, all purified.
All the positive aspects of your character and personality will continue – but purified.
You will never age. You will be set at around 30 years old or so, in today’s terms, although that is speculation. Your appearance will have certain characteristics that will make you identifiable to all who know you, but with no blemishes of any sort.
You will have interchangeable physical and spiritual properties, which will be able to manifest separately and together, just like our Lord after His resurrection.
You will be a perfect being.
You will be a great friend of renewed nature and environment everywhere in the universe and it will be your great friend too.
You will be surrounded by angelic beings and creatures of great wonder. You will have our Lord Himself as your Father and close friend.
You will be known forever by your “countenance.” This is your reward state or “brightness.”
1 Corinthians 2:9 “Eye has not seen nor ear heard, nor entered into the heart of man the things God has prepared for those that love Him.”
Isaiah 65:17 “Behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former shall not be remembered or come to mind.”
Israel’s sudden repentance:
The temple veil represents the veil of blindness on the hearts of the Jews to their Messiah. The veil did not take a long time to split. It happened suddenly. Yes it has already happened, but the Jews are still to see it.
This veil of spiritual blindness on their eyes is starting to lift, even now. The Jew’s are beginning to see with new eyes!
Note in the verse below that the temple veil was torn suddenly
Matthew 27:51 (Amp) “At once, the curtain veil of the sanctuary of the temple, was torn in two from the top to the bottom. The earth shook and the rocks were split.”
2 Corinthians 3:16 “When one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.”
The point is that the temple veil was removed suddenly, but you need to have repentant eyes to see it! Sight will come to Israel suddenly as they suddenly repent. But is it all Israel who will be saved? It is all of the remnant that will repent!
The book of Revelation opens with our Lord walking majestically between seven golden lampstands. (Menorah) The lampstands are the seven churches. (Revelation 1:20)
The messages to the seven churches are profound in meaning, coving the past, present and future. It is the now-message and the future-message we are concerned with.
Only two of the seven churches are clean and pure and without condemnation. Does that offer some insight and advice to you?
Note the horror declared to some churches: “I will come and remove your lampstand.” “I will vomit you out of My mouth.” (Revelation 2:5, 3:16) These are the unrepentant, lukewarm churches.
Many churches have had their light removed and now they are ministries of dark light!
The message to the church at Philadelphia is a perfect example of the successful end-time remnant church with a heart for Israel. (Revelation 3:7-13)
This is all an excellent type of God’s work with Israel too. They are His lampstand. Only a remnant of the Jews will be saved and become God’s light to the Gentiles. Do you see the frightening parallel?
The menorah was first given to Israel signifying that its light is the light of the world. The church then became that light as Israel rebelled, but Israel will again, suddenly become a living menorah to the world!
Numbers 8:2 “Speak to Aaron, and say to him, ‘when you arrange the seven lamps they give light in front of the lampstand.”
This verse above means that God’s light goes forth ahead of Him, and ahead of His people. God lights the path forward He has for you.
The menorah or lampstand is seen in Zechariah 4:1-10 as the plum-line, which is like a light-beam, which is the eyes of the Lord scanning through the whole earth.
Isaiah 10:17 “So the Light of Israel will be for a fire, and the Holy One for a flame. It will burn and devour His thorns and briers in one day.”
It will be the sudden rapture of the church that will cause the repentance of the left behind Jews.
The two verses below reveal God’s emotions with Israel. Do you see the great contrast?
Jeremiah 5:22 “...My soul will weep in secret for your pride; My eyes will run down with tears because the Lord’s flock has been taken captive.”
Zephaniah 3:17 “The Mighty One will save you (Israel). He will rejoice over you with gladness. He will quite you in His love. He will rejoice over you with singing.”
God’s own tears and weeping will turn to singing and rejoicing. In fact this same principle applies to the church as well, and especially to prodigal backsliders returning.
Some incredible “suddenly” verses relating to Israel:
Isaiah 66:8-10 “Who has heard of such a thing, who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day, or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion (Israel) travailed, she gave birth to her children...rejoice, O Jerusalem and be glad with her, all you who love her.”
Jeremiah 6:26 “O daughter of My people, (Israel) clothe yourselves with sackcloth, and roll about in ashes! Make mourning as for an only son, most bitter lamentation; for the plunderer (tribulation) will suddenly come upon us.”
Zechariah 3:9 “Behold the stone I have laid before Joshua; upon the stone are seven eyes. I will engrave its inscription says the Lord of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land (Israel) in one day.”
Ezekiel 37:7 “I prophesied as I was commanded and there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling and the bones (Israel) came together bone to bone.”
Isaiah 48:3 (Israel refined for God’s glory.) “I have declared the former things from the beginning; they went forth from My mouth, and I caused them to hear it. Suddenly, I did them and they came to pass.”
Isaiah 29:5 “The multitude of your (Israel) foes shall be like fine dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passes away; yes it shall be in an instant, suddenly.”
Many times explaining Yeshua to a Jew is like describing a beautiful painting - the work of a great master. But imagine this: You are explaining some details of the painting and suddenly his eyes open and there the real thing is before his eyes – he sees it in full glory! That is exactly what is coming! And He is no painting!
The sudden fall of the end-time world (Babylon the Great):
Revelation 18:10-11 (The kings of the earth see her burning) “...Alas alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgement has come...And he merchants of all the earth will weep and mourn over her...”
Jeremiah 51:8 “Babylon has suddenly fallen and been destroyed...”
Isaiah 47:9-11 “These two things shall come upon you in a moment, in one day; the loss of children and widowhood. They shall come upon you in fullness, because of the multitude of your sorceries, for the great abundance of your enchantments. For you have trusted in your wickedness; you have said, ‘no one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you, and you have said in your heart, ‘I am and there is no one besides me.’ Therefore evil will come upon you...and desolation shall come upon you suddenly, which you shall not know.”
The great tragedy for the world is that they will say “All things are going to carry on as normal – where is the hope of His coming?” (2 Peter 3:4)
Is this verse below, the now-word of the Lord for the world, Israel and the church? You bet it is:
Ezekiel 12:23-28 “...But say to them, ‘the days are at hand, and the fulfilment of every vision. For no more shall there be any false vision or flattering divination within the house of Israel’...’The word which I speak will come to pass and not be postponed any more’...’None of My words will be postponed anymore, but the word which I speak will be done, says the Lord God.’”
Yes, we are suddenly on the brink of great, glorious, mighty and terrible things!
With “suddenly” being such a central theme in the scriptures, for me it bring home one major issue: You need to be prepared and ready now, before “suddenly” arrives at your door.
You need to have a strong, solid foundation in the shaking, even if we only go through the forerunners to the tribulation.
Of all the people saved, I think most will be with regrets for a half-baked life while here on earth. Don’t be one of them wishing you could have your life over again - if you could!
Do you see that little title-picture at the top? After all is said and done – peace, eternal peace that surpasses understanding will be here. That is our future. That’s where it’s all leading to. What good news that is! (Philippians 4:7)
I took this picture in the beautiful Etosha Game Reserve early in the misty morning.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 502: December 31st 2019
Words for the year:
These are words of real life!
Firstly, may I wish all readers a blessed and glorious new year.
This edition is about words I believe will apply and relate dramatically to the year ahead in some prophetic way. The verses I’ve used are relevant and from the Lord. These are exciting times – we are on the brink of eternal victory!
The word for the year 2019 was: Proverbs 28:4 “Those who forsake the law (word) will praise the wicked, but such as keep the word will contend with them.”
If ever there was a true word for the year that was it! We saw the values and virtues of the word cast down and rampant evil flood into every area of life like never before.
Will we get through the year 2020?
I don’t think we will make it through the year, but I’m not suggesting that is a word from the Lord (yet). That’s what I sense now. We will see as we go. I will not get ahead of things, nor will I capitulate to the error of “no one can know the time.”
I will not follow or repeat what others say in this regard, especially those with a track record of failed predications, and those seeking superiority through their manipulation.
Like never before it is time to know who you can trust. Know your worthy teachers.
The Prophetic Scroll (TPS) will always put God’s glory first. TPS is enslaved to Spirit led truth and the narrow road to glory.
Stay tuned right here.
The cross will put you on the narrow road, and make you an enemy of those on the wide road. Rejoice in that!
2020 – Generally speaking:
▪This will be a time of all things speeding up, being stepped up, and being magnified and intensified.
▪As our Lord draws nearer, so His provision, security and safety will be available for His people. His fruit of holiness will be seen more and more in those who are His.
▪As Satan draws nearer his works of deception will intensify in his people. His fruits of sin will be seen more and more in his people.
▪People will cast off restraint like never before. (Hosea 4:1-2) A new hatred will emerge for all things of God, including His people (both Israel and the church). Hate speech will become anything that does not conform to the world’s view of a common human good.
▪We will see the war in Syria finally reach its prophesied Damascus conclusion and the war of Gog and Magog get underway.
▪We will see global climate change become a hot, politically charged, rotten potato.
▪People-power and mob-rule will intensify worldwide and be crushed in many nations.
▪Natural upheavals and disasters will increase in intensity and frequency.
▪We will see the US and the UK stand with Israel in her time of trouble.
▪Israel will finally get a prophetically important new government.
▪Anti-Semitism will rise in the world, and in the church, like in the days prior to the Holocaust.
▪The peace “Deal of Century” will be released with a response that will lead to conflict.
▪There will be an outpouring of truth and of error, of angelic work and of demons.
▪There will be peace that surpasses understanding for some, and great stress, torment and despair.
▪There will be extreme sin and righteousness, wheat, tares, tears, sheep and goats.
▪There will be betrayers betraying and prodigals returning.
This will be the year of glory and terror!
►The glory of the Lord in His people is going to be revealed.
Romans 8:18 “I consider the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”
►The terror of the Lord in the world is going to be revealed.
2 Corinthians 5:11 “Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men...”
Glory and terror in the church:
The glory of the Lord will grow substantially in the church on the narrow road. This will be the church of the few. It will be the remnant church.
Colossians 3:4 “When Messiah who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.”
The word of God will be welcomed, received, studied, exalted and uplifted as the remnant church’s “necessary food.” (Job 23:12, Jeremiah 15:16)
The true, on fire, Spirit led believer will maintain his anchor in the Lord. His “template” will be the Spirit-led word of God. That will be his role model, his blueprint and pathfinder.
Psalm 16:11 “You shall show me the path of life. In your presence is fullness of joy, at your right hand are pleasures forever more.”
Psalm 5:12 “You O Lord will bless the righteous. With favour you will surround him as with a shield.”
The church on the narrow road will remain a friend of Israel, even as this is tested. The contrast between the churches who stand with God’s plan for Israel and those who don’t will become like bright light and deep darkness.
Let me do a detour here and mention this:
Churches reveal their identity visually as well as in word. You can walk into almost any church building and tell what sort of church it is by the decor. We as Christians are called to make the Jews jealous, especially now as the veil of blindness upon their eyes is being removed more and more.
Tragically, some churches have more in character with Babylonian and Roman customs as seen in their decor. Thankfully, there is a growing number who display various Hebraic items as well as Christian decor.
Churches which recognise that they are born out of Israel and our Jewish Messiah are far more open to being pro-Israel and visually Hebraic, but not Babylon / Rome churches.
Don’t go overboard with these things, but they do carry some weight.
Okay, back to the main subject:
There is already a growing terror in much of the church. It is going to intensify.
So many churches use the things of the world as their template, and yardstick. They mingle and mix the ways of the world into their ways and doctrine.
The majority of churches are already on the wide road to destruction. They have removed the centrality of the cross. Their gospel is of “another Jesus” – an all accepting and accommodating Babylonian Jesus. (Ho, ho, ho!)
The removal of the cross, removes the fear of God, and the awesome terror of God. It casts out the “hard sayings” and the “severity of God” in favour of mixture with the world.
Jeremiah 5:21-22 “Hear this now O foolish people, without understanding, who have eyes and do not see and ears and do not hear. ‘Do you not fear Me?’ says the Lord. Will you not tremble at My presence...But the people have a defiant and rebellious heart. They have revolted and departed.”
Jeremiah 13:15-17 "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 light, He turns it into the shadow of death and makes it dense darkness. If you will not hear, My soul will weep in secret for your pride; My eyes will weep bitterly and run down with tears, because the Lord’s flock has been taken captive.”
Pressure on pastors to compromise, will reveal what they’re made of, and who the counterfeits are.
Witchcraft, sorcery of many types, addictions and drug usage will be a fast-growing plague in the church worldwide.
The words of the false prophets in 2020:
We have far too many false teachers and prophets in the church toady. It is going to get a whole lot worse – quickly. Satan knows that he can dupe and deceive unarmed Christians with his authority. It’s plain simple logic that if Satan’s time is running out fast, he will intensify his works. (Revelation 12:12)
Psalm 56:5 “All day they twist my words; all their thoughts are against me for evil.
Jeremiah 23:21-22 “I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran. I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. If they had stood in My counsel and had caused My people to hear My words, then they would have turned them from their evil ways and doings.”
The true prophets and analysts of the prophetic word, will come under attack by those who do not “love the truth” deeply and unreservedly.
Jeremiah 18:18 “They said, ‘Come let us devise plans against Jeremiah; for the law shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come and let us attack him with the tongue, and let us not give heed to any of his words.’”
This will be the year of the false prophets. It will be a year of new, true signs and wonders and great deceptive, false signs that will sweep many away.
Psalm 36:1-2 “Concerning the transgression of the wicked: There is no fear of God before his eyes. He flatters himself in his own eyes.”
The terror of the world:
We are now very close to the dawn of the seven-year tribulation period for the world. The true church on the narrow road will not go through the tribulation.
The verse below is of the Lord for the year ahead:
►Isaiah 47:10-11 “You have trusted in your wickedness. You have said, ‘no one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you; and you have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one besides me. Therefore evil shall come upon you and you shall not know from where it arises, and trouble shall fall upon you. You will not be able to put it off, and desolation shall come upon you suddenly.”
The verse below is a most appropriate verse for 2020. We are already seeing it manifest very powerfully in so many nations:
►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.”
People won’t come to God because He is holy and they love their sin. They will flock to the antichrist because he will be full of sin and require no holiness or repentance.
Any morality goes for the world except biblically induced holiness, because it’s the fruit of another root. The world does not require repentance because it rejects God’s definition of sin. But one thing sin always does is leave you under stress.
The only way you can have real peace is by drawing near to God. The only you can do that is in holiness producing repentance!
Invincible, unconquerable Israel – the Star!
This new-year will be the time the Star of Israel becomes God’s star! Israel, it’s your time!
So many world leaders, rulers, clergy, despots, academics, intellectuals, and other idiots have tried to destroy God’s plans for Israel, by destroying Israel or the Jews or certain aspects of them. They have all failed – every one, and will continue to fail.
The Nazi-prescribed and hated Yellow star, and armbands of identification which Jews were forced to wear under Hitler ahead of the Holocaust, are now long gone. The terrible yellow star has morphed and transformed into the rich cobalt-blue Star of David on the Israeli flag.
The star has come a long way, originating from God’s word, in the design of the crown (calyx) of the pomegranate. (Little golden ones were attached to the priestly garments). Then Satan’s word through Hitler transformed it to a dirty Holocaust-yellow.
But is the fiery hell-red Swastika about to return and bring back the hated yellow star?
Yes it is, but it won’t be in the same form. It is the ancient, age old hatred against Israel by many nations, Islam and much of the church, all led by the father of lies.
For your benefit I’ve put together this brief run through world history looking at this very thing: Note that the former item was or will be destroyed and the latter is of God.
●It’s the Nazi enforced Yellow Star transformed to the Blue Star of the Israeli flag. ●It’s the Swastika superseded by the Menorah. ● Its Hitler’s dead dream of a millennium of millions of Nazi’s, or Israel - numbered as the Sand of the Sea. ●It’s the Third Reich’s failed, final solution -the Holocaust, or Israel – God’ eternal people. ●It’s Islam’s repeated death chants to the Jews, or God’s – “You shall be My light to the Gentiles”. ●It’s the church’s evil replacement theology and God’s acceptance of the Jews and cutting off of those churches. ●It’s a one-world system or God’s One World with Jerusalem as its capital – at peace. ●It’s the antichrist’s false peace covenant and God’s eternal peace covenant with Israel. ●It’s Babylon the Great or the New Jerusalem.
So, church leaders of replacement theology (and the others mentioned above) do you think you can come against and defeat God’s plans and purposes for Israel? You fool of all fools!
The line of words below is the most important line of words you will ever find in the whole world. The working out of these words will be the cause of millions going to hell and millions to heaven. It will be the cause of the greatest wars and calamities ever.
But have a most careful look at the second line of words, and note the difference. That is the line for the churches of replacement theology!
►Israel: ●Elected ●Rebelled ●Rejected ●Regathered ●Repented ●Accepted.
►Israel: ●Elected ●Rebelled ●Rejected ●Israel remains rejected. ●Church replaces Israel.
The churches of entrenched replacement theology are no different to Hitler’s Nazis. Except that they kill the Jews with their words and verses.
The battleground for Israel is about to intensify like never before.
Ezekiel 34:11 “Thus says the Lord God: Indeed I Myself will search for My sheep and seek them out.”
Zephaniah 3:17 “The Mighty One will save you (Israel). He will rejoice over you with gladness. He will quite you in His love. He will rejoice over you with singing.”
Babylon and the New Jerusalem
Many erroneously teach that the original city of Babylon in present day Iraq, will be rebuilt and become the greatest trading, industrial and commercial city in the world. They are wrong. If Babylon the Great (end-time Babylon) is a rebuilt city in Iraq, firstly, it would contradict the verses that say Babylon will never rise again – ever, after her destruction, and secondly, that would mean that real end-time Babylon - the world-system get’s off the hook.
This would also mean that Iraq would have to become a world leader in economic, industrialisation, travel and all the trappings of modernity. That would take 50 years of more to accomplish.
There’s one major issue here and that is that Babylon the Great- the new world-system and its commercial and religious arms, are going to be totally destroyed, never to rise again, like their brother-in-arms, original Babylon.
Here are some of the many characteristics of soon to be destroyed Babylon the Great:
The nations and kings of the earth have drunk the wine of her wrath and committed fornication with her. Her plagues will come in one day. In one hour such great riches came to nothing. In one hour she is made desolate.
Witchcraft and sorcery were tools Babylon and are again tools of the tribulation trade! (Revelation 18:2-3, 7, 17-18.)
Now, I want to take you briefly to the New Jerusalem.
The New Jerusalem:
Do you know what the word, “anisotropic” means? I bet you don’t.
Anisotropic is a fairly new word describing just a handful of specific gems or precious stones. Anisotropic gems have the unique feature of reflecting the full spectrum of the rainbow under a beam of white light.
Amazingly, all twelve of these gems are the very ones – all of them, that make up the foundation stones of the New Jerusalem as revealed in Revelation 21:17-21. As said, this is a new discovery. And here it is in the Bible written ages ago! The mathematical odds of all twelve foundation stones being anisotropic would be astronomical!
But there is more: The Bible shows that the streets of the New Jerusalem are made of, pure gold.
But there is more: The gates of the New Jerusalem are made of pearl, but not lots of pearls, - one giant pearl for each gate! (Revelation 21:21) Have you ever looked at the beauty of a pearl?
But there is more: The city has a river of crystal clear water with proceeding from the throne of God. In the middle of the street and on either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve different fruits every month. Revelation 22:1-2) And there shall be no more curse!” Revelation 22:3)
Okay, so you think that’s all great, but how’s this: This city is about 2,200 miles long wide and high. (Revelation 21:16-17). It would be 600,000 stories high.
Then on top of this, the city is located in heaven now, but will soon “float” down to the earth and hover just above the earth. It will be no UFO! (I think I understand why some people think we’re mad).
But there is more: Yes there is much more that our natural minds can’t even imagine or comprehend the glory that lies ahead.
You see, the problem is that we can only think in terms of what we know now. This city, like our Lord, and like we will be in resurrection, has spectacular trans-physical properties. It’s a lot more than a Superman, super-city!
The New Jerusalem, some wonderful characteristics:
”There will be no more tears, no more death, and no more pain, no more curse.” (Revelation 21:4, 22:3) The city will have no need of the sun because the glory of the Lord will be its light. (Revelation 21:23) The city will be pure and holy. “Nothing that defiles shall enter it.” (Revelation 21:27) The city will be exclusively for those written in the Lamb’s Book of Life” (Revelation 21:27)
The New Jerusalem is also called, “The Holy City”, the “City of God”, the “Celestial City, the “Foursquare City” and the “Heavenly Jerusalem”
Note that the Vatican is also called “The holy city! What a revolting, ugly counterfeit!
It is perfectly biblical, and in fact commanded to know the time and to know the season. So, here at The Prophetic Scroll you will always find the results of looking, watching, praying, and studying for the signs of the Lords coming – and much more.
I took the background pictures of Baobab trees and the saddle-billed stork in Botswana’s Okavango and mixed them together into one.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 501: December 24th 2019
The End and the Beginning:
These are words of life!
This edition is about breaking with the past and moving into all things new. For new things to begin, old things must die and come to an end. We can’t build upon old foundations.
Jeremiah 1:10 “See I have set you this day over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out and pull down, and destroy and to throw down, to build up and to plant.”
“Babylon the Great” is the biblical title for the end-time world.(Revelation 18:2) It consists of a religious aspect with its customs, an economic aspect, a social aspect, and an environmental aspect. All is revealed in end-time Babylon verses in Jeremiah, Isaiah, the Revelation and others.
Just as the original city was destroyed, so is end –time Babylon going to be destroyed soon. It is up to us to destroy as much of it as possible from our lives now.
As a believer it is always good to have a point of identification or a milestone that we can look back to as a major turning point or beginning of a new dimension in our spiritual lives. This is a time to set new radical goals, objectives and plans for our lives because time is running out fast.
“Blow the trumpet in Zion.” Blow the trumpets of victory in your own personal life!
As we approach the end of this year, sit back and take stock. Have you really moved forward with our Lord? Have you cleared out the obstacles in your path? Are you spiritually clean? Have you removed pagan and occult-founded traditions and customs? Have you thrown out your idols?
The world-system is a powerful anaesthetic, but it is a tranquiliser of its soon coming great terror, which it is about to wake up to!
Personally, I believe we are on the edge of glory! If so, when we cross the line, bear in mind that you can’t go back and change things that you should have.
How wise it is to pay the price and get your life lined up with God’s word now!
In this edition, I’m going to challenge you using some biblical material I’ve not used before, and some plain logic.
My position is not to bring anyone under condemnation but simply to present the truth and leave it in your hands.
The mixed up church of today:
The word “Babylon” means “mixture.” Mixture of right and wrong, sin and holiness, truth and error, pagan customs and true biblical customs, light and dark and more are the big issues.
Mixing the sacred and profane does not produce blessing.
One thing you can never do is mix heaven and hell!
Many traditions are fine, but when tradition is founded in the occult, and has many dubious activities associated with it, you need to steer clear.
The majority of today’s churches are filled with worldliness of all descriptions. Many of them talk the right talk but have no power. That is because they have sidelined the source of power – the cross.
Sin and idolatry always obscures the cross and nullifies its power in the individual.
The two main products of Babylon in the church today are Christmas and Easter.
The problem with Christmas:
Christmas is the time when the world cries for world-peace. But the world is about to be destroyed in judgement. Have a look at the most Christmas-quoted verse below and note what it really says:
Luke 2:14 (Amp) “Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace among men with whom He is well-pleased, men of good will and of His favour.”
World peace is not for those who love Santa; it is for those who are His.
There is no doubt that the traditions, of Christmas and Easter, the names also, come out of Babylonian pagan worship. I’m not getting into all of that now. It’s undisputed. – Look it up.
There is also no dispute that Babylonian paganism, Baal worship and idolatry, and much about Christmas and Easter are directly associated - Look it up. (Just type into Google: “Christmas, Baal worship.” You will be shocked.)
1 Kings 18:21 “Elijah came to all the people and said, How long will you falter between two opinions? If the Lord is God – follow Him, but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered not a word.”
Christian leaders that celebrate and promote Christmas, Easter and other Babylonian Catholic pagan customs, and say that they’re just using the pagan names, then use all the pagan items like the Christmas tree, gold and silver balls, which represent sun and moon worship, the Christmas and Easter ham instead of lamb and much more.
The idolatry of Christmas and Easter is so hard for Christians to forsake because their leaders won’t forsake them, and in fact they justify them.
Now let’s look at some shocking verses relating to all forms of idolatry:
- Mark 7:13 “You make the word of God of no effect through the traditions which you have handed down, and many such things you do.”
- Jonah 2:8 “Those who regard worthless idols, forsake their own mercy.”
- Psalm 115:8 (Idols) “Those who make them are like them, so is everyone who trusts in them.”
- 1 Corinthians 10:14 “Beloved, flee from idolatry.”
- 1 John 5:21 “Little children, keep yourselves from idols.”
- Ezekiel 14:3-5 “Son of man, these men have set up idols in their hearts, and put before them that which causes them to stumble into iniquity. Should I (Lord) let Myself be inquired of at all by them?
- Zechariah 13:2-4 “In that day says the Lord of hosts, 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 spirit to depart from the land...Every prophet shall be ashamed of his vision when he prophesies and speaks to deceive.”
- Luke 6:46 “Why do you call me Lord, Lord and not do what I tell you?”
Matthew 5:19 “Whoever breaks one of these least commandments and teachers others so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches other so will be called greatest.”
God is a jealous God. Idolatry of any sort separates you from God. (Isaiah 59:2)
I have never heard one single reason or justification from any of the Christmas clergy and teachers that makes biblical sense – not one.
What is the end of Christmas and Easter? Do you think our Lord will celebrate His own so-called birthday on the 25th December in the Millennium and beyond? You have got to be stark raving mad!
Isaiah 46:10 “...I am God and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand.”
The secret of your spiritual, power and position in the eternal kingdom to come is set by your radical determination to follow our Lord in cross-bearing and consuming of the word of God now.
The curse of Christmas:
Few are aware that Christmas is the Catholic Christes Maesse or Christ Mass. This Mass perpetuates the continuing, repeating death sacrifice of our Lord and has nothing to do with a birth.
The Catholic clergy believe that the Eucharist’s transubstantiation at communion, sees the bread and wine, literally become the body and blood of Christ, and is not just symbolic. This of course means that Christ is forever on the cross always dying.
In fact, “merry Christmas,” in reality then means - merry Christ’s continuing death – Ho, ho, ho!
It’s interesting that the Bible says that our Lord died as a sacrifice “once and for all.” (Romans 6:10) Then He was raised from the dead. I wonder why the Catholics always have Christ still on a cross forever dying?
So, the Christ Mass is about a Jesus who is forever dying! That is "another Jesus" (2 Corinthians 11:4, Galatians 1:8)
The church’s influence on Israel:
Hanukkah is in the Bible and was therefore pure. (John 10:22) Hanukkah is a celebration of the cleansing of the temple from all pagan influences which had come in. Hanukkah is about the survival of a remnant of Jews. Hanukkah celebrates the very survival of the Jewish people in their land.
The central message of Hanukkah is against assimilation, and cleanliness from all paganism.
The Hanukkah menorah is a symbol of the light of God to the world and of dedication.
In total contrast, Christmas is full of paganism in the church. Some of the Christmas pagan traditions have filtered through into Hanukkah, but they will be destroyed.
The Catholic church re-characterised the early church by the removal of the God-ordained feasts and traditions and replaced them with Babylonian-founded pagan traditions intended amongst other things, to keep the Jews out of the church.
You become what you believe and you influence others accordingly. If you believe mixing truth and error is okay, you will become a messenger of mixture – neutralised, with no power. Anything to do with paganism defiles you.
Over time, the Jews picked up many of the evil customs of the nations that hosted them in the diaspora. Even some of the idolatrous practises of Baal worship in the form of Christmas has entered Hanukkah and other Hebraic customs.
Psalm 106:35-36 “They mingled with the Gentiles and learned their works; they served their idols, which became a snare to them.”
Deuteronomy 12:29-32 “When the Lord your God cuts off the nations which you go to dispossess, and you displace them and dwell in their land, take heed to yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed, and that you do not enquire after their gods, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their gods? I also will do likewise.’ You shall not worship the Lord your God in that way...Whatever I command you be careful to observe it. You shall not add to it nor take away.”
But in these end times, the Jews are going to be made spiritually clean and free from all paganism and all forms of idolatry.
Hosea 2:17 “I will take from her mouth (Israel), the names of all the Baal’s and they shall be remembered no more.”
Ezekiel 36:24-26 “I will take you from among the nations, gather you from all countries and bring you into your own land. Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you. I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.”
Isaiah 43:12 “I have declared and saved, I have proclaimed, and there was no foreign god among you; therefore you are My witnesses.”
Israel in the tribulation period will be spiritually clean, and that will cause God to use them as His witnesses. How many lessons there in that!
If Israel is going to be cleansed from all forms of idolatry when she becomes “My witnesses,” don’t you think the same should apply to the church now?
The Xmas clergy are in fact throwing stumbling blocks in the way of the Jews, rather than “making them jealous”. They are contributing to keeping the Jews out of their Babylonian flavoured churches.
The seven Feasts of the Lord will be observed in the Millennium. The two pagan-filled “Christian” traditions, the Christ Mass and Easter will not! Think about that for a while!
Why the insane anger?
People with worldly traditions embedded in their lifestyle take great offence at those traditions being attacked or even questioned by the truth.
There is a particular, terrible hatred that comes from these people. Their traditions and customs have become sacrosanct and so much a part of their very existence that they rise to kill all opposition, if only by word.
They sought to kill our Lord because He didn’t follow their traditions!
John 5:18 “The Jews sought all the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God.”
By the way, I have no problem with people who are not aware of these things celebrating Christmas. What I’m speaking of here is those that know these things and still ignore them.
Can you separate yourself in heart and soul from the spirit of Christmas and still go and have a family gathering and meal? Sure you can if you don’t want to rock any boats.
The powerful, holy church of today:
In a nutshell, the powerful church is the clean and holy church with Babylon (the world) fallen from its lofty position.
How do you know when you are advancing in the Lord? You simply do know if you are taking up your cross daily or not. You will know by the things of the world getting dimmer and the things of the kingdom getting brighter. You will know by just getting sick and tired of the world and its ways.
You will know by your inner rejoicing at your own growing and expanding holiness.
The major work of God in the Christian is holiness, which is separation from the world’s ways. The word “holy” means – “apart or separate.” It’s really a heart thing.
In the final truth of God’s light all will be revealed, which includes your significance in God’s kingdom. Were you determined to follow Him and pay the price, is the question!
Job 17:9 “The righteous will hold to his way, and he who has clean hands will be stronger and stronger.”
A teacher must use wisdom to warn and win. Another thing worth considering is that before your works stand the test for eternity, they must stand the test of fire! This fire is fair! God gives rewards, but also His fire to test them!
Eden smashed and restored:
“Babylon the Great,” – the end-time world-system includes new-age environmentalism. It’s all around us. The world complains about global warming, destruction of habitat, extinction of species and the like.
So much of the natural world has already been smashed up by fallen man, and is now the world’s new political agenda. But so much is a natural phenomenon of which man can do nothing.
So much of the natural world will be destroyed in the tribulation period, but it will make way for Eden restored – worldwide, wonderful, a wonderland soon to dawn.
Nature, environment and all biodiversity must also be cleansed. It has the scars of Adam’s sin upon it, even though God pronounced it “good” at creation.
The world is about to be shaken to its foundation, including the environment.
Joel 2:3 “A fire devours before them and a flame behind them burns. The land is like the Garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness.”
The “triumph” of Satan-led man is the creation of a desolate wilderness, soon to be totally destroyed in the tribulation period.
Isaiah 51:3 “The Lord will comfort Zion, He will comfort all her waste places; He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord. Joy and gladness will be found in it, thanksgiving and the voice of melody.”
Ezekiel 36:35 “So they will say, “This land that was desolate has become like the garden of Eden; and the waste, desolate and ruined cites are now fortified and inhabited.”
Job 39:8 “The range of the mountains is His pasture, and He searches after every green thing.”
A world with the living God removed has no awe and wonder to it. You awaken fully to the beauty of creation in the light of the Creator. Remove God and nature comes down to man’s level. It is then essentially dead and open to miss-use and abuse.
When you are alive to God you see and hear nature’s pain. You see it abused by cruelty and the godless world. You join nature in “groaning”! (Romans 8:22)
Even now under the curse on the earth, nature still contains much glory. God can be seen in His creation. He is not the creation, but can be found in it. (Romans 1:19-20, Revelation 21:27) And once the curse has been lifted – it will be even more magnificent.
These things may be a dream to most, but dream on – dear dream-child. Dream on peace-child, a new world of peace beyond imagination is coming soon.
At the fall of man the earth sprang forth with thorns – a sign of the curse running through to nature itself. At the cross, our Lord, the King of the Jews, became King of the curse, taking the curse on nature upon Himself, in the crown of thorns – the symbol of the curse. (Genesis 3:18)
The tribulation is nature’s death convulsions and birth pangs before its “new-birth” in the Millennium. The crown of thorns will soon manifest in perfect environment.
Those who are enemies of the cross of Messiah are in fact also enemies of the coming liberty and redemption of all nature. It is only the cross that removes the curse.
Isn’t it interesting: The world’s environmentalists hate us Christians, but it is us Christians who carry the cross of the curse’s destruction, which will really set the environment free!
We have the answers! Please read Romans 8:18-22
It’s all going to come to a climax soon. (No you didn’t read it – go back and read it!)
The world is trying to find peace and acceptance and never will because they are looking in the wrong place. They are looking for peace in what is condemned of God and has the curse flowing in it.
If you are in tune with God and His Spirit, you will have a deep identity with, and compassion for nature. You will be sensitive to the agony of creation and astounded by its marvels.
Proverbs 12:10 “A righteous man regards the life of his animals, but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.”
Do you know about the New Covenant? Sure you do. Do you know about the new covenant God will make with Israel? I hope you do. Do you know about the new covenant God will make with nature? – Few do!
Hosea 2:18 “In that day I will make a covenant for them, with the beasts of the field and with the birds of the air, and with the creeping things of the ground. Bow and sword of battle I will shatter from the earth, to make them lie down safely.”
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.”
Isaiah 11:6-9 “The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the young goat, the calf and the young lion together; and a little child shall lead them...The lion shall eat straw like an ox.”
The very purpose of all creation is to glorify God. Satan has hijacked it, but God’s ultimate new eternal, perfect world is coming soon on the wings of destruction of the old.
We are to love God’s creation because He does. Only the saved can see that and do it.
The glory of creation must be received alongside art, music and other things of civilized culture. It is part of the soul of creation.
Have you ever noticed that it is an awesome thing to see into the future! It is shattering, fearful, terrifying, humbling and wonderfully encouraging.
Psalm 119:30-32 “I have chosen the way of truth. Your judgements I have laid before me. I cling to Your testimonies, I will run in the way of Your word. For You shall enlarge my heart.”
Isaiah 48:3 “I have declared the former things from the beginning, they went forth from My mouth and I caused them to hear it. Suddenly, I did them and they came to pass.”
In the soon-to-come glorious eternal future we will all be free of all sin. We will be like Him. (1 John 3:2) We will be holy and pure. How wise it is to go that path now.
One early morning while strolling along in one of our game reserves, looking for photographic matter, I came across these happy, harmless lions. Happy and harmless because they had just had their morning feed on a wildebeest they had killed earlier.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 500: December 17th 2019
Wisdom for the world today:
These are words of life!
This is edition 500! Thank you Lord – We have come a long way!
This edition is about the current fast-moving ways of the world and the stable ways of the word, or alternatively, the clash between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of the world. (The menorah, which I use images of frequently, is a symbol of the Light of the world.)
It’s of great importance to know where we are in the great scheme of things, and to know exactly where the world-system is going. We must know all about the kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness at this time. Knowing these things gives us stability and purpose.
Globalism is arising, and global anarchy is on the march. There is a reason behind it all. In this edition, I will identify some of these issues on the go now and where they are heading and why.
With spiritual blindness comes the death of discernment and a deadly false sense of security, which is a huge death-trap particularly at this time as spiritual forces intensify their warfare.
The biblically informed and Spirit-led will go through temporary hardship, but they can never be totally enslaved.
The attack on the cross:
The cross of Calvary was and is the only great instrument of salvation. It is the great sin-eliminator and holiness generator.
The cross of Calvary is the source of real power – resurrection power! (Philippians 3:10)
Sin is an affront to the holiness of God. It is an affront and attack on the cross of Calvary. Sin nullifies this all-important work of the cross and its power in the believer.
The agenda of the evil one is to desensitise the Christian to sin. Satan’s agenda is to obscure and remove the cross, creating a cross-less world religion, acceptable to the blind, deceived masses.
The spiritually blind can’t see the hidden agenda of the god of this world, because they can’t see him. They can’t see that the world is a kingdom with the sin-laden character of its god, which is to kill, steal, destroy, deceive and lie. (That is the same as the character of the the fallen self-life.)
It is only the cross of Calvary that removes all sin. Nothing else does. Unsaved people, who are essentially good, are full of good sin.
Globalism or internationalism has got rid of God’s definition of sin, so that a new world order can come in that would be universally acceptable. Sin is part of the new world order, because it has rejected the definition of sin, and the work of the cross.
Sin in fact is the world’s happiness. Ours happiness is holiness!
The new world’s definition of sin is godly holiness! All that God defines as holy is now the world’s unhappy unholiness.
The new world’s definition of “holiness or godliness” is enslavement to the ideals of its god - the god of the world!
To see these things and to see the kingdoms in conflict, you must have spiritual eyes. If not you cannot see them.
“You must be born-again to even see the kingdom of God,” and the kingdom of the world. (John 3:3)
When you can’t see either kingdom, you are doomed and you can’t even see it.
The cross of Calvary, the new-birth and the knowledge of God, supplies ongoing power, victory and deliverance from the grip of Satan and his world of sin.
The cross has destroyed sin, but as we know sin sneaks up on us when we refuse to take up our own cross. The results of the cross obscured are always seen in the manifestation of sin.
“Sin shall not have dominion over you.” (Romans 6:14)
Defining the course of the world:
We are seeing the final efforts of Satan to deceive the whole world ahead of the tribulation period. There is a universal, consistent theme playing out simultaneously all around the world today. Very few are aware of it!
Old school, hard-line Marxist / Leninism and communism, would have little chance of making any headway in most nations today. But we are seeing most of the deadly principles and strategies of these old systems, simply change face and come in the back door, camouflaged as a new ideal socio-political system.
Communism is in effect ‘commonism’ or materialistic equality. The god of socialism is equality, which can only be brought in through massive control mechanisms of the state. Equality sounds good, but being controlled does not. It is control that the world will get in the name of equality.
The goal of socialism / communism is the same as that of the antichrist. It is to make you one with sin and to get the masses to worship him and the powers that be in the state.
The end game of the antichrist / Satan is to exalt himself as God and to receive worship. He will do it through his evil methods. He comes to kill steal and destroy. He is the father of lies and the deceiver of the whole world.
Satan enslaves the masses by force or by their wilful surrender to him, led by the evil puppet-master, the mass-media.
Today, socialism is coming in through the ballot box. In the soon-coming tribulation it will come in through the bullet box and the brutal box. Brute force will be the order of the day.
We are seeing a growing attack on all the biblical principles that produce a nation under God. As these principles are cast down, the door is open for a nation under Satan!
The verse below is the tragic outcome of man’s best efforts, led by his wicked god. This will fully manifest in the tribulation period, but we are on the way already.
Isaiah 10:13-14 “By the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom, for I am prudent. 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.”
Note that resistance to this socialism is crushed.
The world’s wisdom:
The world is led by politicians and they in turn are led by the world of intellectuals.
The world of academics and intellectuals are in fact great deceivers. Their wisdom in most cases is hostile to God. It is the wisdom from below and not above. (Obviously, I’m not talking about general education, which has no moral or biblical aspects to it.)
James 3:15-17 “This wisdom does not come from above, but is earthly (worldly), sensual (soulish), demonic...but the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.”
Note the descending path of the wisdom from below!
Intelligence grown in the seedbed of rejection of God’s word makes your intellectualism pure, real stupidity!
The masses are easily fooled by the world’s wisdom, because they are of the same root, and have no spiritual defences or discernment. The world’s wisdom has never endured and will be short-lived!
The world’s wisdom has a deceptive authority to it. A little old learned, bespectacled, highly educated man, redefining marriage, for example, carries this automatic reverence and unwritten authority in the eyes of the masses. But he is a leading champion of fools.
Isaiah 29:14 “...The wisdom of the wise shall perish and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hidden.”
1 Corinthians 1:19 “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
Jeremiah 8:9 “The wise men are ashamed, behold, they have rejected the word of the Lord; so what wisdom do they have?”
Our Lord is preparing for Himself a bride, whom He will love forever. The antichrist is preparing his bride, whom he will rule with force and then kill. What a terrible tragedy for the unsaved to find that out – when it’s too late!
As the world descends and deteriorates fast, how important it is to: ●“Love not the world.” (1 John 2:15) And to: ● “Hate your life in the world.” (John 12:25) And: ●“Not to find your life in the world.” (Matthew 10:39)
There was a time not long ago when many nations were under God to some degree. They were morally great! The same is true for the church worldwide! Now the pulpit has been taken over by the pew and the results are evident.
Because something is accepted by the masses does not mean it is biblically or morally right.
Socialist political orders have no patriotism or love for country in their belief systems. The goal of socialism is command economics, state control and a new one-world government.
The masses become a defined entity, with an illegitimate, stolen authority, not emanating from God.
The failure of democracy is that it has no inherent truth. Its truth is what a majority says it is. It always changes according to the changing times.
Democracy did not vote the Bible out of society. So, who did? It was Satan masquerading as a political VIP, an academic intellectual.
Corrupted sin-filled minds are blinded, pliable and easy to corrupt further and subjugate to the will of the state, and the traditions of the world and the fallen church.
The only hope of the nations is the light of the true, Bible-believing church, and that will soon be gone in a flash! Deep darkness full of terror will descend after our “ascension”!
One absolute, universal, truth is that man cannot run his own life outside of God. He is about to find that out the hard way - the too-late way!
Man’s conscience, 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. In fact most people today including many Christians have a seared conscience. Doom is just down the road.
The mass-media have moved beyond being pure news reporters, and are now opinion makers, propaganda dictators, and have become Satan’s collective organiser, planner and agent. They are leading the world into a new socialist dictatorship, which will turn out to be worse than that of Hitler, Stalin, Marx and other mob maniacs.
The equality big lie:
The communistic / socialistic principle of redistribution of wealth in the name of equality kills the goose that lays the egg. It kills initiative and incentive and makes everyone equal – broke! It also creates a world in which people become dependent upon government and lose their motivation for personal betterment.
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. Some have delivered themselves over to curses, others to blessing.
Equality robs people of their true intrinsic value and makes them dumb, slaves of the state. Equal opportunity yes, but that’s a different thing.
The answer of course is the distribution of the knowledge of God into society. This creates a strong nation under God and allows for people to become what they are born to be.
The free market principle is not the rich get richer and the poor getting poorer. It is the rich get richer and the poor get richer. (With the exception of those under the curse of poverty, or those who want to stay enslaved to poverty.)
Yeshua said, “The poor you will have with you always.”
Internationalism, globalism and socialism (all linked) brings everyone down to the lowest common denominator under the spirit of Satan while remaining slaves to sin. God brings us up to the highest value and seats us in heavenly places, holy, righteous and pure.
Socialism violates the biblical law of sowing and reaping. The overall goal of socialism is control and domination, the very goals of Satan.
The new world and Israel:
When a church won’t touch eschatology, by default it won’t touch God’s plan for Israel and they become ministers of social justice, and see things through Palestinian eyes.
Satan’s plan is to destroy Israel. God’s plan is to restore Israel! Satan’s plan is to defeat the church. God’s plan is to manifest her as “more than a conqueror.”
Israel can’t assimilate into the world because of God’s call and plan for her. The same is true for the church! This is why we are to come out of, and die to the world!
The new world has no place for Israel, who will be God’s chief evangelists in the tribulation period. The new world has no place for the church now either, except for the cross-less church as a political entity to further the aims of a one-world religion and the new-world state.
So, Satan uses the church to get rid of and replace Israel, just like Hitler did, but without gas ovens. Replacement theology is the devil’s weapon of choice for the compromised church, against Israel.
By the way, if the church has replaced Israel then the whole world is the Promised Land and can easily be moulded and controlled by the god of the world.
God will use Israel’s military in a major way and will include nations allied with Israel.
Jeremiah 51:20 “You (Israel) are My battle-axe and weapons of war. For with you I will break the nations in pieces. With you, I will destroy kingdoms.”
Isaiah 60:8-10 (Gentiles bless Zion) “Who are these who fly like a cloud, and like doves to their roosts? Surely the coastlands shall wait for Me...The sons of the foreigners shall build you up your walls.”
The future of the world:
There are two “worlds”. The future of the ungodly new world order is total destruction and annihilation. The future of the new world order under God – the Millennium is pure glory!
Here is how we are to deal with the world now:
“The world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” (Galatians 6:14)
But hang on a minute, the cross led to resurrection. So is the world going to rise again? Yes and no, is the answer. It is going to be destroyed and will rise again in total newness of life, God’s pure and holy life. The new world will be on the far side of the cross! What a wonderful world that will be!
If the world has been crucified to me, it means that it is dead to me. In death it has all its evil stripped out. But crucifixion is only one side of the coin. Resurrection is the other. Interestingly, no human being can create resurrection, so all eco-efforts are ultimately doomed until the Millennium.
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, liberation theology, capitalism, tyranny or anything it likes, but it can’t get rid of sin! It is forever doomed to be united with sin until its destruction.
We are not called to reform the sin-filled world, or to redefine sin. We are called to die to it and come out of it. Our world is not of this world. Our world is perfect and sin free. It is called “The Kingdom of God.”
Our kingdom only shines into the world in its separation from the world.
The Spirit of truth reveals God, glorifies Messiah and convicts of sin righteousness and judgement.
Political leaders that have forsaken the ways of God, are a very great danger to the masses, and especially to Christians and 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.”
►Psalm 94:20 “Shall the throne of iniquity, which devises evil by law, have fellowship with You?”
Think about this:
There was not one liberal lefty in the Lords army of workers, disciples and close followers! That should tell you something!
Voting for the left wing parties of the world today is voting for ultimate tyranny, command economics, and domination. Beware there are spirits at work in all these things and they will soon manifest!
We are to judge ourselves now so that we will not be judged or condemned with the world.
There is little difference in the rebellion of Lucifer, Adam and Eve, Babylon, and all the godless empires right up until today.
The ultimate secret, hidden, non-said goal and agenda of Satan is to create an unrestricted road of “freedom” all the way to hell.
The world today is fast approaching tribulation readiness!
The Christian was born equal under the sin of Adam. Through the new-birth we are born-again, equal in terms of foundation. But what we build on our foundation is as different as the stars!
The unbeliever is born into the sin of Adam and there he stays, blinded to kingdoms in conflict and forever imprisoned, dominated and controlled.
Knowing what’s going on gives you some degree of stability. You can rest in God’s truth, even while the world is going to hell in a hand-basket of its own making. You can be that pillar of stability and truth for others to lean on. (1Timothy 3:15)
With God’s answers, under your belt, you can be His own missionary, evangelist, and warning light to many. And let me tell you – they need you!
I took these pictures flying over the Cathedral Peak range in the Drakensberg Mountains. The inset picture is the Dragons Back, also from the air. (If you look carefully, just above the Bell you can see two other choppers.)
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
