18th September 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Watch the watchmen:
But first: Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s prayer meeting, “The Return” will be held on the Washington Mall, Washington DC, on the 26th September. This day is known as Shabbat Shuvah. Interestingly the Bible reading for the day is, “Return O Israel, to the Lord your God.”(Hosea 14:2-10 Micah 7: 18-20 Joel 2:15-27) It’s all centred on a global call for the church to return to the ways of God, and for Israel’s return to Messiah.
Today is the beginning of Rosh Hashanah / Feast of Trumpets, depending on the sighting of the new moon. ●This is NOT the rapture time and start of the tribulation.
The current peace efforts between Israel and some Arab nations is NOT the final antichrist peace deal - not by any means. What they are is incremental peace efforts.
This is NOT the “peace and safety, then sudden destruction” verse coming about. That verse relates to the Daniel 9:27 peace deal and the tribulation.
But these things collectively are important in that they present a new dawn for the Middle East. The knock-on effects and influence of these peace efforts are causing others to want to jump on the band wagon too.
Because these are such critical and dangerous times, this is a more important time than ever to be led correctly by men of God who are led by the Spirit and have a history of accuracy and stability. There are many amongst the riff raff.
So many wannabe watchmen and teachers are leading people astray with inaccurate, wrong pronouncements. Some are so outrageous! A watchman of the Lord is not one who watches for possibilities. He knows where to look and what to watch for and is led by the Spirit of God, therefore he is right.
I was given some “100% for sure” information in charts and numbers and various things as to why this would be the rapture time – for sure 100%! It didn’t sit right. When checking it out myself nothing added up!
Because a blind, always-wrong watchman says something is a sign; that does not make it so, by any means.
Being wrong destroys your authority and credibility, and damages the prophetic word and the faith of others, especially new believers.
Being wrong on major biblical things means one thing for sure – absolutely: You have not heard from God and you speak your own opinions.
The Spirit led teacher / watchman will have a history of godly stability and is therefore trustworthy.
Discernment is more critical than ever in the face of fast growing deception.
Ezra 3:13 (Temple rebuilt) “The people could not discern the noise of the shout of joy from the noise of the weeping of the people...”
Error becomes an immovable mountain if not dealt with, because it is formed and secured on the pillar of pride.
Spirit led, and inspired knowledge, understanding and wisdom endures and produces godly fruit.
One way to know a false teacher: When brought to correction, they will turn on you because you won’t join them in propping up their pride!
The Spirit of God in your heart is the umpire. He brings peace when you are on the right track. But you need the baptism of the Spirit. If not your umpire is you, yourself.
The condition of the end-time church:
There is a powerful prophetic message for the end-time church hidden in the messages to the seven churches in Revelation 2 & 3. They were seven historic churches. All seven contain truth for us, but prophetically, they also plot the course of church history.
The first three churches, Ephesus, Smyrna and Pergamos speak of the times gone by. The last four plot the course of the end time church and run concurrently. They are Thyatira, representing the Catholic and other orthodox churches. (They are cast into the tribulation) Sardis is the church that has a “name to live but is dead”. They are told that Lord will come upon them as a thief and they won’t know when! This represents the denominational Spirit-less churches. (With a few exceptions) Then comes the glorious church – the church of Philadelphia. They have the key of David, opening the doors to the Jews. (Isaiah 22:22) This church keeps the word and is promised to be kept out of the tribulation. Finally we have the lukewarm church of Laodicea, which is spiritually blind. God “vomits them out of His mouth.” “Laodicea”: Strong’s G2993, “Laodikeia” From two root words: ‘Laos’ = people and ‘Dike’ =Ruling. This is the people ruled” or “people/self opinionated church.
The pictures below show all that remains of Laodicea today. The Spirit of God flew away from this church and God spat them out of His mouth. (Revelation 3:16) The pillars still standing represent truth, but all else is gone.
1 Timothy 3:15 (Amp) “You know how people must conduct themselves in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and stay – the prop and support of the truth.”
So, what we see here is a very powerful and accurate picture of the end-time church. Some of it is the walking dead. Some are a horror of evil. Some are cast into the tribulation, spat out and condemned. And right in the midst is the church who keeps and loves the word and is pro-Israel.
Bear in mind that there is a terrible, tragic church and a glorious, growing powerful church side by side in these days. Don’t get tunnel vision for just one side of the coin.
The Bible speaks of a great end-time revival (the latter rain) in the last days. (Joel 2:23, Hosea 6:3) and in many other verses.
A major prophetic mark of the times is increasing deception in the church. You can’t have increasing deception without increasing deceivers and that’s where the problem lies.
Satan used deception to try to stamp out the early church because he knew it would wreck his kingdom. Now we have the same scenario again. Sometimes you have to be severe in your dealings.
Acts 13:9-11 “Then Saul, also called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit looked intently at him and said, ‘O full of all deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all unrighteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord? And now indeed the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you shall be blind, not seeing the sun for a time, and immediately a dark mist fell upon him...”
It is most important to know prophetic things to come, but also the timing of those things, to avoid deception. You must see with spiritual eyes today.
A Spirit-led and inspired watchman / teacher is always restrained in what he sees and says. He is led by the restrainer.
We are now at the start of the new Hebrew year 5781. It will end and change to 5782 on Rosh Hashanah 2021. That is September 7th - 8th 2021. That’s a very important date!!
This year, 5781 is going to be year like no other. It’s going to be a wild time of stress, strain and pressure. But in the midst there will be islands of peace amongst the pillars of truth.
The good news is that we are on the verge of great revival. We are seeing it in many nations of the east. Of course there will always be churches deteriorating and dying.
Many of those who have gone off into a ditch will repent and return. Many will continue to slip and slide further away.
As we enter the beginning of these wild times, I want to assure you that The Prophetic Scroll will be your place of spiritual stability and rest.
Edition 539: September 15th 2020.
Goodbye and good riddance! Goodbye world, hullo Lord – next year!
The world stage is set for the greatest drama of all time!
For many of the Christian remnant, we said “goodbye cruel world” a long time ago! As part of the ingredients of the salvation of our soul, we have died to the world, the flesh / sin nature and the demonic influences and activities in the world - all through the cross.
Now many are suddenly jumping on the Christian dead-wagon to be carted off to the local dump. Dying to self and the world releases us from its grip and brings peace.
As a Christian we die and are born again (spirit). We die to self as an ongoing experience (soul). We will soon “die” as these mortal bodies are changed into immortal bodies in a flash. (body)
If you thought by “goodbye world” I meant now at the Feast of Trumpets in a week, you are wrong!
I did say weeks ago, that we will see if it is this year’s feast, as the time approaches.
I can safely say now, that it will not be this year but next.
►Don’t miss next week’s edition. I have some remarkable things to share!
These are tempestuous, violent times. As we approach the rapture of the true church the world approaches the tribulation period. As the Lord’s wrath approaches (Revelation 16:1), the wrath of Satan approaches (Revelation 12:12), the wrath of man intensifies and the wrath of nature waits in the wings.
These are crushing times! Did you know that the meaning of the Hebrew letters of their new year 5781, coming next week is: To be “pressed” or “crushed.”
The Feast of Trumpets:
►Firstly, there will be no blowing of the shofar / trumpets at this feast of trumpets next week. This is because shofar / trumpet blowing is forbidden when the feast falls on a Sabbath. (Look it up).
This Friday 18th at sunset, the feast begins and lasts to Sunday 20th. It’s been very encouraged to see so many wake-up to the fact that the Feast of Trumpets will herald the rapture and tribulation start. I have stood almost alone in this view since the 1980’s, except for a few of us die-hards.
The rapture / tribulation will begin on a Feast of Trumpets, but I need to share why I believe it is not this one, but the next one – Monday 6th September to the 8th 2021.
The two main requirements for the tribulation to begin are the revealing of the antichrist by and through the signing of a peace deal, revealed in Daniel 9:27, Daniel 8:25 and others.
The main biblical ingredients of the peace deal will be: ●Signing by the person to be revealed as the antichrist. ●The breaking of God’s eternal covenant with Israel. ●It must be a seven year covenant. ●The handing over of much of Jerusalem to the Palestinians. ●A temple to be built on the Temple Mount. ●A peace treaty with Israel and Arab neighbours. ●It will involve dividing the land of Israel.
Once again let me say that the US Deal of the Century does not fulfil any of these requirements and is in fact no deal at all, because it was not ratified and never came into being.
That Deal of the Century, did not divide Israel. Israel was and is already divided. Israel was divided by the Turks, the Jordanians, and the British. That’s what Gaza and the West Bank is! There is no other peace deal or covenant that fulfils the above requirements.
So if you say, as many do, the antichrist confirms an existing covenant (wrong interpretation), what covenant is that? The correct interpretation of Daniel 9:27 is the Amplified Bible’s position:
Daniel 9:27 (Amp) “He (antichrist) shall enter into a strong and firm covenant with many for one week (of years)...”
At the time, or very shortly after the tribulation begins, the ten-nation revised Roman Empire comes into play.
At the time, or perhaps just before the tribulation begins, the big prophesied end-time wars take place.
As you see, we are close to some of these things, but none are in place and ready to roll and there is one week to go! These things can all happen quickly, but there is too much that needs to be fulfilled.
The current peace initiatives between Israel and various Arab nations are not it either.
The peace deals on the go now with the minor Arab nations of the region are of no prophetic consequence on their own. All together, they point to a shifting tide in the Middle East, which is good. But beware - the heart of Islam has not changed.
These peace initiatives with smaller Arab nations have a sting in the tail!
The sting in the tail is this: It dupes the world into thinking it can create peace. But the world’s peace is always a deception awaiting destruction.
Some are saying that these mini-peace deals are the fulfilment of “When they say peace and security, sudden destruction comes.” (1 Thessalonians 5:3)
Not so! The peace that is being referred to here is the coming Daniel 9:27 peace deal, and that is not here yet. A whole bunch of Arab nations making peace deals with Israel would most certainly be significant and a forerunner of the big one to come, but it is not the big one yet.
The “sudden destruction” is most certainly the as yet unfulfilled prophesied wars in the Middle East.
The Bible speaks of “wars and rumours of wars” as part of the “birth pangs” and “beginning of sorrows,” and “the end is not yet.” (Matthew 24:6)
We are not seeing these wars just yet.
There is little sign of required repentance, especially in the church for the big culprits of the current upheavals, which is the mass murder of the unborn, aggressive, expanding homosexuality and the like. To say ridiculous things like all these troubles in the world are because Trump divided Israel is an outrageous misdirection.
There is danger in jumping the gun. We would all like to go home next week, me included, but beware that you don’t get on the wrong train and lose hope!
If you have none of the revelatory gifts of the Spirit operating in you, especially as a teacher or watchman, you will have no spiritual revelation of your own. You will then constantly have your own self and personal experience (“private interpretation”) to go on, and you will always be borrowing second hand revelation from others. You will be known by that!
Some are calling for the rapture at almost every turn and always fail like ghost riders in the sky!
Israel’s new Promised Land:
The most amazing, and little-known type in the Bible is seen in the journey of the children of Israel from Egyptian captivity, through the Red Sea, into the wilderness and finally into the Promised Land.
The type is this:
Israel was let go from Egypt, a type of the world.
The Red Sea crossing is a type of Israel’s miraculous victory in the War of Independence and subsequent birth as a nation. That occurred in 1948 when Israel became a nation in a day, perfectly fulfilling Isaiah 66:8.
The time in the wilderness is a type of Israel now. She is independent and free, but not in her spiritual Promised Land yet.
Along the way to the Promised Land, Israel had to deal with much opposition like Jericho which obstructed her path and journey. That is a type of all Israel’s opposition today including from the church in the form of replacement theology.
Did Israel finally make it to the Promised Land? You bet she did. Will she make it to her spiritual Promised Land? You bet she will!
I’ve included the following verses without commentary. A simple reading of these verses is very powerful, and paints a most dramatic picture. Read them!
Micah 7:19-20 “God will again have compassion on us, and will subdue our iniquities. You will cast our sins into the depths of the sea. You will give truth to Jacob (Israel)...”
Isaiah 60:21 “Your people (Israel) shall all be righteous; they shall inherit the land forever, the branch of My planting, the work of My hands, that I may be glorified.”
Hosea 14:4-6 “I will heal their backsliding. I will love them freely, for My anger has turned away from him. I will be like the dew to Israel...His beauty shall be like an olive tree.”
Zephaniah 3:13 “The remnant of Israel shall do no unrighteousness and speak no lies, nor shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth...”
Deuteronomy 14:2 “You (Israel) are a holy people to the Lord your God, and the Lord has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the earth.”
Numbers 23:9 “From the hills, I behold him, (Israel) a people dwelling alone, not reckoning itself among the nations.”
Jeremiah 24:7 “Then I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am the Lord; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God, for they shall return to Me with a whole heart.”
Isaiah 45:17, 25 “Israel shall be saved by the Lord with an everlasting salvation and shall not be ashamed or disgraced forever and ever...In the Lord all the descendants of Israel shall be justified and shall glory.”
Jeremiah 50:19-20 “I will bring back Israel to his habitation...In those days and at that time, says the Lord, the iniquity of Israel shall be sought, but there shall be none; and the sins of Judah, but they shall not be found; for I will pardon those whom I preserve.”
The coming US election:
Here is a likely scenario for the US: The Democratic Party has all but shot itself in the foot, handing victory to Trump. This is because the majority of people have a basic Christian worldview in them, even if not practiced actively.
One should never underestimate the importance of having a biblical worldview, which supports a nation under God. That does not mean that everyone who holds to those views is personally saved, but when the pressure is on it reveals what people are made of.
Big pressure is here with more coming, but don’t throw in the towel USA! Turn to those long held biblical principles which the liberals are trying to destroy.
USA, and nations with large Jewish populations, please bear this severe biblical principle in mind:
►There is a repeating principle revealed in the Bible: God punishes Israel for their rebellion by bringing them into captivity by the nations. But then when the job is done, God destroys the very nation that held the Jews captive.
The US and others are not holding the Jews physically captive, but they are in the sense of lifestyle and sinful behaviour, which is keeping them blinded.
The reason is simple. When in captivity, the children of Israel were influenced by the sin, paganism, and evil of the nations holding them captive.
Matthew 18:7 Woe to the world for its stumbling blocks (offences). They must come, but woe to that man through who they come.”
Ezekiel 23:30 “I will do these things to you, because you have gone as a harlot after the Gentiles, because you have become defiled by their idols.”
Deuteronomy 12:30-31 “Take heed to yourself (Israel) that you are not ensnared to follow after them (false gods) ...That you do not inquire after their gods saying we will do likewise. You shall not worship the Lord your God in that way.”
Today we see Israel captive to the western world system and being influenced by the entire world’s ungodliness. Soon the Jews will be released to enter their new spiritual Promised Land. They will be holy and clean. God will then destroy the current world system.
This has major implications for the world today. The ways of the world that have flowed into Israel have prevented them from going, holy and pure, into their new Promised Land of salvation.
Here is another amazing type revealed in the great Exodus:
►Pharaoh finally let God’s people go, but then changed his mind, pursued the children of Israel, and the Egyptian armies were killed in the Red Sea, as the Jews went on their way to the Promised Land. This is a type of the antichrist, making a peace covenant with Israel. He will then pursue them to his own detriment.
The Second Exodus is not complete yet. It will be soon, as Israel comes to salvation. Guess what is about to happen to the captors?
The world’s job in holding Israel back is just about done. Goodbye, cruel world!
This is one of the reasons why the world will not go back to normal, until it has been fully destroyed and then cleansed!
The world is about to get stoned, in a bit more than a puff of smoke. All the world’s empires are going to come crashing down suddenly as the Stone shatters their feet to pieces. (Daniel 2:34, Isaiah 60:12)
Isaiah 8:9-10 “Huddle together, O peoples, and be shattered; pay attention all you distant lands; prepare for battle and be shattered, prepare for battle and be shattered! Devise a plan, but it will be thwarted. State a proposal, but it will not happen, for God is with us.”
Zechariah 2:5 “For I, says the Lord, ‘will be a wall of fire around her (Jerusalem) and I will be the glory in her midst.’”
Tragically much of the western church has been dumbed down to the true things of God and of Bible prophecy, by their own dummies in the pulpit.
The youth of today have been dumbed down by the world and in many cases their own parents. They have been denied discipline and miss-educated, re-educated, with new age and new world thinking, devoid of God, creating a true lost generation, ready for hell.
The good news:
God makes things new! He made us new, He will make us newer. He will make Israel new. He will make the all things new. (Revelation 2:17, 3:12, 21:5)
The good news is God is just, holy and righteous and He is going to create just those characteristics forever in the entire universe, in which we will have full access.
In a constantly changing world you lose your sense of direction and stability. Only by hanging onto, and applying the age-old principles of the scriptures can this be fixed with peace and stability?
He is coming for a glorious church. Israel too will end up being glorious. He is coming soon! We will continue to watch and pray!
If there are any major, significant developments on the prophetic scene within the next week, I’ll report on them here in the “Prophetic News” section above. So stay tuned.
I will not report on or even mention, things that are of no prophetic consequence and there are many. I will also not report on the many things floating around today that are total error and a big distraction for the truth.
I took the background picture from a chopper in the Drakensbeg Mountains and a martial eagle with my motorised Hasselblad.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 538: September 8th 2020.
Trumpets now or next!
The rapture, now or then!
Regular readers know that I (and many others) maintain that the rapture will take place on a Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah). In fact I have maintained that it is impossible for it to take place at any other time. Of course the big question is which Feast of Trumpets?
I began my journey into the Feasts of the Lord when I was about 2 years old! I grew up in a Jewish neighbourhood. My mother taught in a Hebrew nursery school, so I was thrust into Hebraic culture from the day dot. The fridge was often full of gefilter fish! But it really all came alive to me in the early 80s.
So the feasts are nothing new to me. I have shared on their importance since TPS began.
We are ten days away and closing in fast on this year’s two-day event.
It is still possible for us to fly away this Feast of Trumpets, but it is increasingly less likely.
The all important dispensation transition:
The seven feasts are in fact an astonishing, miraculous picture-type of the major world prophetic peaks. They reveal the great dispensation changes from the Old Covenant to the New, back to the culmination of the Old Covenant as seen in the seven year tribulation, and then the transition to the dispensation of the Millennium.
But here is the all-important, severe and critical point: The feasts annihilate and destroy anti-Semites and “Christians” in replacement theology!
Passover, Unleavened bread, Firstfruits and Pentecost, were prophetically fulfilled by the work of the cross, through to resurrection and the church age. These collectively relate to the church.
The Feast of Trumpets through Atonement to Tabernacles relates primarily to Jewish time, and the events of the tribulation, leading to the Millennium. (See diagram below.)
Many say that all the feasts were prophetically fulfilled by the church. You are then saying that the last three feasts (in blue below) have no required fulfilment by Israel. You are simply replacing Israel with the church, making you a pure proponent of cursed replacement theology.
We are now on the very doorstep of the great transition, just like the seasons, from one dispensation to the next. The big question now is: Are you truly saved?
The professing, confessing, non-born again, so-called Christians who will be left behind at the rapture will suddenly be faced with their most heart-wrenching question ever: “Why me? I’m not a Jew or a Muslim; I’m a Christian, why was I left behind?”
The rapture will reveal what real salvation is and isn’t. It will reveal how far from repentance the left-behind crowd are. It will reveal who truly loves the Lord and His word. It will reveal in an instant the shocking truth of God’s word. It will reveal who has sold their soul to the devil, knowingly or not.
Many Christian leaders say that the feasts are for the Jews and we have our own convocations, like Christmas and Easter. Of course they don’t know the origin of their pagan convocations. They were founded by the early Catholic church and introduced to keep the Jews out of the church.
The command of God is to make the Jews jealous and to take the gospel to them first, not keep them from the church! (Romans 1:16, 10:19)
Isaiah 57:14 “...Prepare the way, take the stumbling block out of the way of My people.”
The Bible speaks of one of the beasts of Daniel (Rome) being given power to deceive by changing times and seasons. This would refer to changing the Gregorian (Catholic) calendar, changing the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday and the introduction of Babylonian Christmas and Easter.
I was listening to a Messianic Rabbi the other day, bemoaning the terrible curse the church has inflicted on the Jews, by removing the feasts and replacing them with the pagan festivals of Easter and Christmas. He said there were very few Jews in Israel that would ever identify with and participate in these Babylonian pagan practises.
Jews had already been in Babylonian captivity once before!
Christians who participate in and support Christmas and Easter are participating in paganism. They do so because their good friend, the world does so very well.
The church has an amazing blind-spot in this area. The blind-spot has developed over time into a belief-bias. They think that Christmas and Easter are of God.
They have fallen for the group-speak of the world. Tragically, group-speak becomes group-permission and belief!
Here is one of many verses that kicks group-speak in the head:
2 Corinthians 10:12 “We dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves, but they, measuring themselves by themselves and comparing themselves among themselves are not wise.”
The verse below is the glorious opposite of the world’s group-speak, belief, and blind-spot bias:
Jeremiah 6:16-17 “Stand in the paths and see, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is, and walk in it, then you will find rest for your souls...They said, ‘we will not listen to the watchmen.’”
When Israel returns to the Lord, they will be pure and holy!
Zephaniah 1:4 “...Against the inhabitants of Jerusalem, I will cut off every trace of Baal from this place, the names of the idolatrous priests, with the pagan priests.” (Baal = pagan, Babylonian custom.)
Some key names and terms for the Feast of Trumpets:
The feast begins on one of two possible days, when the new moon is sighted. It is therefore called the feast of which no one knows the day or hour.
If I said to you that the rapture / tribulation start will occur on a Feast of Trumpets, I cannot be setting a day or hour!
Anyone who says the rapture will take place on a Feast of Trumpets can’t be accused of date-setting!
The feast takes place in the “twinkling of eye.” This is a Hebrew idiom referring to that brief time when the sun sets over the horizon, producing a last twinkling. Do you see the relevance?
The feast is also known as: The opening of the gates of heaven. (Psalm 118:19-20, Isaiah 26:2, Revelation 3:7) But Israel remains on earth to fulfil the final feasts prophetically, so who are the gates of heaven opened for? Hmmmm, I wonder!
The Feast of Trumpets always occurs on Tishrei 1st, the beginning of the Hebrew New Year. The word “Tishrei” means dissolving sins. It also means “you shall begin.” It is the time of the ultimate new beginning for Israel and the church in their new bodies and new locale – faaaaar away!
This feast is also known as the feast that confuses the devil, because of its variable starting date.
There are many more incredible factors, parallels and types. You will find some of them under the link on the right, headed “Editions by subject” and “Feasts of the Lord.”
The timing of the rapture / tribulation start:
Romans 11:25-26 “I do not desire brethren that you be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel, UNTIL the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And then all Israel will be saved.”
The word used for “come in” is Strong’s G1525: “Eiserchomai”. Meanings: To go into, as food enters the mouth; To arise and come into a new existence; To come to life.
We can write the verse this way: “Blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles (church) has gone in the rapture. And then all Israel will be saved...”
It is Israel that comes to life, and the church that comes to a new resurrection life – fully completed for ever!
The prophet Habakkuk asked the Lord: ‘How long, O lord, until these things (violence and treachery of the wicked) come about?’”
Habakkuk 2:2-3 “The Lord said, ‘write the vision and make it plain on the tablets that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak and will not lie...’”
We see that we can know the time. Note the Lord’s answer: “It will speak and not lie.”
That simply means that we are to wait until He speaks or shows us.
The Lord may speak within the next few days leading up to Trumpets. I am listening. I am also not going to lie and make up all sorts of things to make a case, when the Lord is silent on the issue right now.
Only the remnant few will be ready and go in the rapture. Many who think they are saved are not!
The glory of the Feast of Trumpets:
It is the only feast that recognises and identifies the end of the times of the Gentiles and the start of the time for the Jews.
It is the only feast that effectively condemns replacement theology.
The hidden gems in this ancient feast are truly marvellous and quite shocking for those who have been kept in the dark about it all by their church leaders.
The Feast of Trumpets is marked by 100 trumpet blasts in various patterns. The trumpet is the shofar. Some of these shofar blasts represent:
●The anniversary of the creation of the world. ●A call to repentance. ●Hearing God’s voice. ●Calling to Messiah to come quickly. ●The day of judgement to start. ●The ingathering of Israel. ●The awakening of the dead.
Have a look at this amazing, prophetic verse below. Note that masses will come to worship on the Temple Mount. That should tell you a thing or two about the future of the Mount!
Isaiah 27:13 “In that day, the great trumpet will be blown, they will come who are about to perish in the land of Assyria and they who are outcasts of Egypt, and shall worship in the holy mount at Jerusalem.”
Generally, I don’t put a lot of weight on things like this, but this is interesting so I will just touch on it:
From the Feast of Pentecost this year to the Feast of Trumpets, is 113 days. This number 113 represents the “long hot summer” and speaks symbolically of the length of the church age. Just to see what would come up, I typed into the search engine, “Prophetic meaning of 113” This is what came up: “The snatching away of the saints.”
Psalm 113:7-9 “He raises the poor out of the dust, and lifts the needy out of the ash heap, that He may seat him with princes – with the princes of His people.”
“Shortened day” – Wrong!
I have seen so many fancy, astronomical, mathematical, exercises of linguistic gymnastics trying to show how the days of the tribulation are shortened. (Matthew 24:22)
So severe will the tribulation be that people will seek death. It will be a time like never was, or ever shall be, in its terrible severity.
It will be so severe that the Bible says, the days will be “shortened” (That is an incorrect translation.) They will not be shortened. The days are clearly numbered, measured, given and determined. If it is shortened it is not seven years long.
The correct translation of the word “shortened” is “cut out in time.”
Once saved always saved – Wrong!
In these dangerous days where the suicide rate is dramatically escalating and many believers are giving up, it is important to address this subject now.
It’s always good to know what constitutes salvation and where the limits and boundaries are. It goes to your spiritual preparedness.
Those who claim ‘one saved always saved’ are doing you a disservice, as you drop your defences!
When you are truly born-again, the Bible says that nothing or no one can snatch you out of the Lord’s hands. This all goes to eternal security for the true believer. But there is one missing candidate in the verses that can cause you to lose your salvation.
It is you, yourself. You can willingly, by choice reject the Spirit of God from yourself.
You do not drift in and out of salvation. Sin does not cause you to lose your salvation, neither does a backslide. But beware of the following verse!
I have never heard an acceptable explanation for this frightening verse from any proponent of ‘once saved always saved’:
Hebrews 6:4-6 “It is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit (believers) and have tasted of the good word of God and powers of the age to come, if they fall away (complete), to renew then again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame.”
Not only does this verse show that you can lose your salvation, it shows that if you do, you can never get it back again! There are others like it too.
Revelation 3:5 “He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life, but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.” (This implies that you can have your name removed.)
Interestingly, the Bible says that sin has been removed by the cross. That is past tense. It is a done deal. The problem with sin in the believers life is that it resurrects what God has removed by the cross, effectively nullifying the work of the cross in that area!
Sin has been removed, but your resurrecting of it slowly eats into your very being. Walking in holiness is the way to go!
Too many come looking for salvation as a sort of sponsorship, or cheap insurance policy or some sort, like a commodity, but they will not die to self, the world and the demonic.
Then there are the untold masses who think they are saved, because they put their hand up in church and said a sinner’s prayer.
There are many fruits of salvation. “A tree is known by its fruit.” If you are truly saved it will be seen in your fruits and in your ongoing relationship to the world, the flesh and demonic, and of course, in your thinking:
►World: 1 John 5:4 “Whatever is born of God overcomes the world.”
►Demonic: 1 John 2:13 “You have known Him, and you have overcome the wicked one....”
► Flesh: Galatians 2:20 “I (self / flesh life) have been crucified with Messiah...He live through me.”
►Thinking: 1 Corinthians 2:16 “...We have the mind of Messiah.”
Salvation is free, but it is extremely costly. Salvation of the soul (not spirit) is where the work is required. Do you know the terror of the Lord? (2 Corinthians 5:11)
The good news is that when the blessed hope of our salvation is complete, we will be just like our Lord – fully glorified! (Romans 8:30, 1 John 3:2)
The trumpet / shofar of God is about to sound: Exodus 19:16 “The sound of the trumpet (shofar) was very loud, so that all the people that were in the camp trembled, and Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet with God...”
If it’s not this year, it will be next – stay tuned. I can assure that I will be keeping a very close, prayerful watch, and will keep you on the cutting edge too. Be blessed dear friends!
This is a mix of my pictures: Elephants, sunset and purple gallinule – Okavango.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 537: September 1st 2020.
Knowing the time (Part 4)
The next few editions are critically important. I strongly suggest that you pay careful and close attention to every word. Of course, the previous “Knowing the time” editions are important as well. We are now in times of rapid prophetic fulfilment.
If you know your Bible very well, you will know the time!
●The Bible says our Lord will “show us things to come.” (John 16:13) ●The Bible says He will “show you things before they come to pass.” (John 14:29) ●The Bible says we are to “know the time” (It’s a command). (Matthew 24:32-33) ●The Bible says we are to “know the times and season.” (1 Thessalonians 5:1) ●The Bible says that a ripening fig tree (Israel) will show us when the end is near.” (Matthew 24:32)
●The Bible declares that the “secret things belong to the Lord, but other things He has revealed to us.” (Deuteronomy 29:29) ●The Bible says that He will “reveal these things to His sons, the prophets.” (Ephesians 3:5, Amos 3:7) ●The Bible says that “we are not in darkness that this day should overtake us.” (1 Thessalonians 5:4)
In this edition I will deal briefly with the arising of false prophets / watchmen. The duration and timing of the coming wars of prophecy, the nations involved, what weapons will be used, what the outcome will be and who is victor.
False teachers, prophets and watchmen:
The collective, compromised church has opened the door for the devil. They have empowered the god of this world to defeat the church if only partially.
The true church has an enormously high calling and responsibility. It is the guardian of morality, of culture and of truth. It is the light of the world.
1 Timothy 3:15 “That you might know how you ought to conduct yourself in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar, prop, support and foundation of truth.” (Amp)
Do you know what happens when you remove the pillar, prop, support and foundation of a building? It is not going to stand in the storms.
Over time the church has become consumed with the world’s materialism and how to be blessed with cars, boats, planes and lots of financial prosperity. Thankfully today, their superficial gospel has become so transparent it is exposing the mega-frauds in the pulpits.
(I believe in biblical prosperity and the need for certain material things, but it is the excessive over-balance and the manipulation involved that I’m at war with.)
With a focus on the very things Satan, as the god of this world, offered our Lord on the mountain of temptation, the church has accepted it all and failed to see the enemy coming in with his agenda.
The reason these days are dangerous is not just because of the onslaught of the evil one again Israel and the church, It is because the evil has secretly infiltrated some churches, like a cancer.
Vipers in the pulpits and their parrots in the pews have been singing “me, myself, I and my money.” The church has fought for money while its freedom is being eroded from under its nose.
How do you release the power of the devil into the church? – Just do nothing. As you lay down your spiritual armour and weapons, your focus shifts and the enemy becomes your friend. You become truly spiritually blind, and a sitting duck for the devil, or a falling Humpty.
Self is the god that displaces God in man. The un-crucified self has Satan in camouflage in the driving seat. A key to identifying self and his Satan in the church is the absence of the cross and holiness.
We are now seeing an abundance of false prophets and false watchmen, who see nothing but their own thoughts, in their blinded and confused eyes.
Identifying false prophets: They are seldom right. They never admit their error. They are self orientated, blind to the full truth, legalistic in opinions. They are soft on sin. They reject the authority of other mature solid men of God. They cause division. They do not have the fruit of the fullness of the Spirit. They use manipulative words. They are unable to see the damage they do to the prophetic word and the church. And much more!
Amazingly all these false watchmen never ever apologize for being continuously wrong and the damage they do.
Teachers must learn what is of prophetic significance and what is not.
The return of the cursed Nibiru:
The Revelation 12-sign teachers blindly followed each other in proclaiming that the world was to be annihilated by the planet Nibiru (twice the size of Jupiter) that was hurtling through space and due to strike the earth on some particular date, back then.
Of course it did not, or on any of the numerous other dates that they then put forward as impact date - because the planet does not exist.
Regular readers know that I warned of the curse attached to Nibiru over and over again.
Well, nothing has changed. Some watchmen / teachers have revived Niburu as a threat to the earth.
Nibiru is not a planet! It is a Babylonian satanic god who rides and arranges and organises the constellations to produce signs. He is the god of “crossing over” or “transition”. He was known in mythology as the “great heavenly sign”.
Nibiru is also known as Marduk, who brought the half human Annuaki hybrid humans to the earth when a giant planet approached and hung over the earth, to offload these hybrid humans in pre-adamic times. This is a counterfeit of the Adam and Eve story.
Marduk /Nibiru, was also known as “King of the earth,” because he stayed behind on the earth to create a “global human elite, with these new people when the UFO-like planet left the earth.
These Nibiru descendants were known in Egypt as the “guardian watchmen”. They were the watchmen of the signs in the stars. By the way, “Babylon” in Hebrew means “The gateway of the gods.”
One of gods of the Anunnaki people is “Anu” , known as the Great sky father, whose daughter was Ishtar (Easter)
There is much more to these myths and legends, but let me warn you that if you get into this stuff in any depth you are messing with strong curses. – Good luck!
So, why the return of the great Nibiru deception now, to the big fools?
It is because we are in the era of great deception, great evil signs, great misdirection, great lies and importantly, a UFO excuse for the rapture! “Nibiru took them”!!
Occultation is an astronomical term describing a situation when one object is obscured by another. It applies to the blind-spot area of the observer.
Many of these modern teachers and watchmen are under the spell of occultation!
Prophesied wars and Nuclear war:
Firstly, the coming wars, including WW111 are not the same as the war of Armageddon. The former occur just before or right at the start of the tribulation, while the latter is right at the end. But there are some similarities, which is why I have combined these wars in this discourse.
The reasons for the big wars to come are all related to Israel. In the war of Gog and Magog it is because the invading nations come to take plunder. This is primarily agricultural plunder, livestock and gold and silver, which relates to things of value.
But the primary reason is because God puts “hooks in the jaws” of Russia and draws them in! (Ezekiel 38:4)
By the way, many teachers are claiming that the nations allied with Israel, do nothing but sit on the sidelines and protest. (Ezekiel 38:13) But the protest “Have you come to take plunder,” can just as easily be a cause for their military involvement! In fact this is implied in the remaining verses.
The following verses speak of these prophesied, wars as taking place very suddenly.
Isaiah 29:5 “The multitude of your 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.”
Jeremiah 6:26 O daughter of My people, clothe yourselves in sackcloth and roll about in ashes! Make mourning as for an only son, and most bitter lamentation, for the plunderer will suddenly come upon us.”
Revelation 18:8 “Her plagues will come in one day – death and mourning and famine, and she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.”
►The following verses imply nuclear warfare. If not, they relate to massive destruction:
Zechariah 14:12 “The people who fought against Jerusalem will be struck. Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, and their eyes and their tongues.”
Zechariah 5:1-11 The entire discourse relates to possible nuclear war. (More in Edition 206. HERE)
Isaiah 13:13 “I will shake the heavens and the earth will move out of its place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts in His fierce anger.”
Isaiah 66:15-16 “The Lord will come with fire and with His chariots like a whirlwind, to render His anger with fury and His rebuke with flames of fire...The slain of the Lord shall be many.”
Ezekiel 39:9, 12 “Those who dwell in the cities of Israel shall go out and set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and arrows, the javelins and spears, and they will make fires with them for seven years...For seven months the house of Israel will be burying them, in order to cleanse the land.”
Micah 1:4 “The mountains will melt under Him, and the valleys will split like wax before the fire...”
Joel 2:29-30 “...I will pour out My Spirit in those days, and I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, fire, and pillars (column) of smoke.”
The original word for “pillar / column” is: Strong’s H8490, “Tiymarah”. Meanings: Column, pillar with smoke at the top like a palm tree. (More in Edition 206. HERE)
Ezekiel 38:9 “You will ascend coming like a storm, covering the land like a cloud, you and all your troops and many peoples with you.”
Ezekiel 38:16 The war of Gog and Magog sees the enemy nations, “a mighty army coming against Israel like a cloud to cover the land.”
These two verses above are a clear reference to air-power.
Joel 2:20 “I will no longer make you (Israel) a reproach among the nations. I will remove far from you the northern army (Russia) and will drive him away into a barren and desolate land, with his face towards the eastern sea and his back towards the western sea. His stench will come up, and his foul odour shall rise, because he has done monstrous things.”
The duration and end outcome of the war:
The antichrist is not seen in WW111 (Gog & Magog) while he is at Armageddon. Yeshua is not seen at WW111, while He is at Armageddon, standing on the Mount of Olives.
►Ezekiel 38:8 Maintains that this war takes place when Israel is “dwelling safely”.
This original word is “betach” and can mean a feeling or sense of safety. Today those returning to Israel do so because they feel safe.
►Ezekiel 38:11 maintains that the war occurs when Israel is a “land of un-walled villages, without bars and gates.”
This term is comparative. In Ezekiel’s days, almost every city and village had a large wall around it with secure big heavy gates that were closed at night. This has not been the case for modern Israel at all. The verse in no way refers to the barriers to keep Palestinian militants out.
Ezekiel 39:9 speaks of a period of seven years for the burning of the weapons used in this war. That implies nuclear weapons, but it also gives us a substantial clue to the duration of the war. The war would obviously have ended at the time the seven year cleaning up begins. That means the duration of the war was extremely short.
The war occurs when Israel has been regathered in the later times / end-days. The results of the war see the spiritual awakening of Israel. (Ezekiel 39:29) So we know that it is in our day and has not happened yet.
We see the same outcome here with the Psalm 83 war, which is why I maintain that it has not occurred yet. It may well be part of the Ezekiel 38 &39 war. Note the outcome in the verse below:
Psalm 83:18 (End of war) “Men will then know that You, whose name alone is Lord, are the Most High over all the earth.”
Ezekiel 38:23 “I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the Lord.” (Ezekiel 39:7, 21)
We know that the tribulation period will be filled with war. We know that the end outcome of the tribulation will be the ultimate victory of our Lord and His “battle axe” – Israel. We know that the end outcome of the tribulation will be the Millennium of peace.
The Bible makes it clear that huge numbers of Jews and Gentiles will be saved in the tribulation. We know that the salvation of the Jews goes into overdrive right through the tribulation period.
The greatest end results of all these wars will be the sudden eye-opening, veil-removing and salvation of the Jews, so that they can become God’s great evangelists throughout the rest of the tribulation period.
The wars happen suddenly. The eye opening to Messiah happens suddenly! What incredible drama!
Isaiah 66:8 “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? As soon as Zion travailed (tribulation) she gave birth to her children...Rejoice with Jerusalem...”
(Let me say again, that this verse above is not the church being born-again as the blind Revelation 12-sign teachers, and other proponents of cursed replacement theology teach. It speaks of Israel!)
Zechariah 3:9 “...I will remove the iniquity of that land (Israel) in one day.”
The ultimate victorious outcome of all future prophesied wars is right here:
Deuteronomy 33:29 “Happy are you O Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by the Lord, the shield of your help and the sword of your majesty! Your enemies shall submit to you, and you shall tread down the high places.”
Only a dispensational, Zionist Judeo Christian biblical worldview works, with all the pieces of the puzzle fitting together perfectly.
In this edition I have presented to you the very likely order of very soon-coming events, with numerous verses to back up each major point. There may be some variety in the order, but it won;t be much.
In all of this you can and must live in peace. Ultimate, everlasting peace is the final outcome of all the drama. But you can walk it now to an extent. Die to self, the world and the demonic and you are free and at peace!
This is one of my early elephant paintings combined with one of my eagle photographs.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 536: August 25th 2020.
Knowing the time (Part 3)
We are in the era of the forerunners of the four riders of the apocalypse. These four riders will bring with them great tribulation, troubles death and dramas. They are also seen as the “seal judgements” being opened by our Lord, for release, in the Revelation.
The Bible is a powerful road map showing us the end from the beginning. (Isaiah 46:10) God also reveals to a few of His servants the timing of these end-time things.
The characteristics of this time period:
It is very important to know the devil’s devices and to know what is about to transpire and why, so that we may know the time and know how to avoid the pitfalls. We must know and take hold of God’s provisions for us through His word and His gifts of the Spirit.
Things are dovetailing together now, or should we say, vulture-tailing!
The greatest end time sign is deception. Our Lord warned of it numerous times, specifically related to these end days. We are not in the tribulation yet, but we are in the forerunner period.
We are seeing deception increase at a phenomenal rate.
Matthew 24:24-25 “False christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders, so as to deceive, if possible even the elect, see I have told you beforehand.”
Daniel 8:25 “Through his cunning he (antichrist) shall cause deceit to prosper under his hand, and he shall magnify himself (pride) in his heart. He shall destroy many in their prosperity (peace). He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without human hand.”
Revelation 13:14 “He (antichrist) performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.”
Great signs and wonders are not always a sign of the truth. Correct doctrine is.
We are now in the post-God, me - now era. This of necessity means we are in the post-truth era. How true that is! It. Pride’s doctrine is: “I am”, “I will”, “me now.”
Biblical doctrine must be divisive. Truth must sting like a bee. It must take exception to a world of error! It must take you down, clean you up, reconstruct you, and then lift you up. That is the work of the cross.
Deceptions works through: Pride, Laziness, ignorance, renouncing the truth, false doctrine, demons, occult, curses, elevating traditions of man, elevating the group speak of peers and the world.
We need a plumbline of truth so that we can build our lives according to its truth.
Identifying deception’s food – pride:
At this time, the pride of man is a pandemic! That is a mark of the times. Today pride is ultra-dangerous. It is spiritually charged like never before.
Pride always rejects the work of the cross. It is, “you can do it, and yes you can.” It is, “me now” gone to pot. It is self glorified.
How to identify a minister or ministry full of pride: ●They have very little to say or teach on the power of the cross. ●They will speak a lot about themselves and what they think, and their own experiences. ●The living power of the Spirit of God will be absent. ●They will be full of error with no repentance. ●Normally, they are not baptised in the Spirit and even come against it.
You can tell which teacher of the word to trust. ●They must have a track record of being right and not wrong especially about prophecy. ●They must know the Bible backwards, but also know the author – the – the Spirit of God. ●They must be free from hobby-horse doctrines. ●They must produce healthy, good fruit that endures, amongst their flock.
They will be in agreement with other solid, safe Spirit-led Bible teachers and ministers.
Be careful of those who are never regarded but the deep, mature teachers and leaders. We need the plurality of mature elders, to be in agreement. (Not necessarily on every minor point.)
The Spirit of truth is your great friend, lover and comforter. The spirit of error is your secret enemy, masquerading as your friend. He truly hates you.
►The great big fruit of truth is being right with God.
►The big fruit of the spirit of error is being wrong!
►Error attaches itself like a virus to the pride in man.
►Humility opens the door for God. Pride shuts it and opens the door for Satan.
►There is always great peace in holiness, because holiness is of God.
►There is great stress in sin because sin is of its god Satan.
►Sin’s god is Satan. Sin is service to Satan.
If you think the truth will just descend upon you in these days, because you’re special or something, think again. You must fight for (contend for) the faith. (Jude 1:3)
A teacher in pride attracts like-minded little exclusive clublets called “the wrong brigade.” They feed off each other. They can’t take correction. They bite when rebuked.
In their pride these teachers can’t see their own failures. Far too many have a false idea of their self-importance, thinking that they are God’s voice for the entire church!
Most of the “always wrong brigade” never learns. They keep coming back with more harm to inflict on the gullible, and the new Christian. They think they are serving God.
►Do you really think God is going to give someone who is always wrong, and who is ignorant of the entire Bible a great message for the whole church?
Dressed up deception:
Deception has many dresses. The dangerous, ugly dresses have “truth” emblazoned all over the garment. It is only when the Spirit of God shows you the power of deception, in the various manifestation of pride, and its evil power – sin, then you can be free.
There is an available power that comes to believer through the application of the cross. There is a power of evil deception that comes through the failure to apply the cross. (1 Corinthians 1:18, Philippians 3:10)
Listen for the key words of deception in a minister. They will often be words or behaviour of pure manipulation. Be careful of people who always go outside of the scriptures for their “truth”. That amounts to condemned, “private interpretation.” (2 Peter 1:20)
100% of rapture dreams and rapture utterances prefaced with, “the Lord told me,” have been wrong. Every single one! None have come to pass in spite of the many who preface their garbage with: “It’s 100% for sure!”
Being repeatedly wrong on rapture predictions cheapens the entire doctrine and identifies you as a wolf-crier, not a watchman. It demonstrates perfectly that you have no biblical authority or Spirit leading.
If a watchman sees the wrong thing he shoots himself and the people in the foot.
1 Corinthians 14:8 “If a trumpet makes an uncertain sound, who will prepare for battle?”
Jeremiah 5:31 “The prophets prophecy falsely, and the priest rule by their own power; and My people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end.”
Those who don’t know the time of the Lord’s coming are described by God Himself in His word. He calls them “blind guides,” “the wicked servant”
But in all these things, don’t go into the ditch on the other side of the road, rejecting all watchmen. Keep a solid Spirit led approach and focus.
Replacement theology disguised:
At this time you need to steer clear of all those portraying doctrines of replacement theology, even in partial form, because there is a most powerful evil spiritual, demonic force behind it.
Firstly, I’m not into naming names, unless the Lord says so, but I most certainly will name, identify and come against false doctrine or the spirit of error.
The Revelation 12-sign teachers were all wrong. Today some still flog that dead dangerous horse of subliminal replacement theology.
Almost every verse used by the Revelation 12-sign crowd was in error. It was replacement theology from beginning to end, with many dangerous, cursed deceptions thrown in like Nibiru.
If you read the surrounding context of their verses, you will see that they apply to Israel and not the church. Isaiah 66:8 was the classic. (Read it and the following verses.)
The church is not in the book of Revelation after chapter 4. So why then has the church replaced Israel in chapter 12, according to the Revelation 12-sign teachers?
The warning is that replacement theology grows deadly ugly legs!
There is a danger in getting the feasts of the Lord wrong too.
Those who say the seven feasts have all been fulfilled in the events of the cross are obviously proponents of subliminal replacement theology. The Feast of Trumpets marks the dispensation shift from the church age to Israel’s time – the tribulation period.
Every single proponent of a post-tribulation rapture ignores the feasts, because they signal the dispensation shift at “trumpets.”
If you claim that the Feast of Trumpets has already been fulfilled, you are getting rid of Israel’s time.
If you dislike the Jews, be very careful, because you will be led to the Christian Hitler in the pulpit or on YouTube, where you will find many verses being stamped with an invisible Swastika. You will find no cross of Calvary being presented, but the modern gas chambers of replacement theology!
It’s a good idea to set your heart to love and choose what God has!
The only way to be truly safe and protected from becoming anti-Semitic with its terrible consequences is by knowing God’s prophetic word on Israel. If not, you do and will know the word of the world and its god, and him you will follow!
Joshua 11:20 “It was of the Lord to harden their hearts, that they should come against Israel in battle, the He might utterly destroy them, and that they might receive no mercy, but that He might destroy them, as the Lord had commanded Moses.”
The hookers are coming:
Israel, it’s your time. The great clock of ages is ticking. The great clock signalling the big dispensation change is casting its beautiful, fearful and golden light over your ancient walls and gates – about to open to your Messiah – our Messiah!
The Prince of peace is coming, but only after the hookers!
The hookers are coming with big hooks to hooks in the jaws, to draw the people into war! The fateful hooks of great terror will draw the nations into the battle ground of WW111. (Ezekiel 38:4, 29:4-5)
Whichever way you look at it, this war is coming, ready or not, peace treaty or not!
The world cries for peace, but I say: “Peace, peace when there is no peace.” (Jeremiah 6:14)
The true Christian can be likened to an invisible spy in the enemy’s war room! We know what is coming. War and then peace is the set of the clock.
We are now seeing a most important forerunner. It is the forerunner of the antichrist peace treaty. This is the smaller Arab / Israeli peace deals. It is a forerunner of the big one, but not the big one yet.
We have seen the forerunners of locust plagues, famine and disease. The big forerunner still to run is war. The big one, WW111, can blast onto the scene any day now.
Staggering insights into WW111:
Ezekiel 38 speaks of this war in which Russia and her allies come against Israel and her allies. But as we look further into Ezekiel 39, we see how this war will end and what will be the consequences. We see some remarkable things relating to the timing of it!
“Fire is sent on Magog and the coastlands. The dead bodies cover the mountains of the Golan. It takes seven years to clean up after the war and seven months to bury the dead, just where they fell, implying some sort of radiation. (Ezekiel 39:9, 12)
Ezekiel 39:22-29 “So the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day forward. The Gentiles shall know...I will not hide My face from them anymore, for I shall have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel.”
As this war ends, we see Israel being saved en masse. As the war ends, even some Gentile nations recognise the hand of God in it all.
This war is not Armageddon, which is ended by the Second Coming. This war is ended by Israel and the veil being lifted off the eyes of the Jews.
For this reason and others, I say that this war will take place right at the start of the tribulation period or just before. Hundreds of other verses reveal that the salvation of the Jews goes into overdrive for the seven-year period.
Do you see what this means? We are close! Israel, it’s your time!!
The wise will heed the warnings, and get, and be ready.
The world is about to get frog marched, with many doing the goose step, with controlling hooks in jaws, while wolves in pulpits, left behind, howl as they all ride the storm of tribulation, charging to disaster.
Isaiah 42:6 “I the Lord have called you (Israel) in righteousness, and will hold your hand. I will keep you and give you as a covenant to the people, as a light to the Gentiles.”
Isaiah 60:3 “The Gentiles shall come to your light and kings to the brightness of your rising.”
All the troubles today and soon to come are because of the world’s rebellion to God.
Life’s biggest mistake is to ignore the warnings of God.
The police, the military and all authorities are being made impotent, defrocked and defunded. “The office of the authorities is of God.” (Romans 13:1-2) What a surprise the liberal left brigade has coming: You don’t defund God!
The Spirit-less church is a dead temple made with dead stones and dead hands. Babylon and its tower were made with man-made bricks and mortar, while the temple in Jerusalem was made with stone not cut near the temple. This speaks of God made stone and man’s futility. (1 Kings 6:7, Acts 17:24)
Best is to do things God’s way!
Psalm 33:10-11 “The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing. He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect. The counsel of the Lord stands forever.”
Psalm 46:6 “The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved. He uttered His voice and the earth melted. The Lord of hosts, the God of Jacob (Israel) is our fortress.”
World, you will soon be lamenting: Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away!
World, the ominous writing is on the wall. You have been weighed in the balances and found wanting. The harbinger of your destruction has spoken.
The prophetic clock is ticking, chiming, and alarming, the pendulum swings ominously. The hour hand approaches the dreaded midnight hour and the minute hand proclaims the end.
I took the background picture in one of our giant sycamore tree forests and inserted the Namaqualand flowers.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 535: August 18th 2020.
Knowing the time (Part 2)
In the last edition (“Knowing the time Part 1”) I spoke of knowing the time through the prophetic times of the seasons, the Feasts of the Lord, the progressive revealing of end-time details, and more.
I want to continue the theme, but with an emphasis on what is about to break out.
But before we continue:
There is only one way to stay safe in these days. It is to know your Bible thoroughly and to know its author personally and have Him at work by His leading in your heart, through His gifts of the Spirit. All of this takes extreme diligence and a life of time. Many say that they don’t have the time for all of that. That’s exactly why they are a spiritual nothing!
More on the error of “no one knows the time:”
Now, all you end time teachers, and preachers of “No one knows the time” (Matthew 24:36) I’m going to rattle your cage – are you ready?
If you read the “Of that day and hour, no one knows” verse of Matthew 24:36 and the surrounding verses to get the context, you will note that they are all talking of the conditions prevalent during the tribulation. Then after our key verse, all the way to the end of the chapter, the subject remains the conditions of the tribulation period.
So Reverend minister; are you telling me that one single verse in the middle of an entire discourse of 51 verses dealing with the tribulation, suddenly switches to the church age and the rapture, when everything else is speaking of the tribulation?
In terms of Bible hermeneutics, exegesis and logical laws of interpretation, you can’t do that. You must keep things in context.
To be consistent with the context, “no one knows”, has nothing to do with the rapture. It is speaking of the conditions that will occur in the tribulation.
By the way, the entire seven-year tribulation is referred to in some verses as the Day of the Lord and the hour of trial. So there is your “day and hour.”
You can use this verse in application to the Feast of Trumpets, which is also called “The feast of which no one knows the day or hour.” But that is application and not interpretation.
But all is not lost. There will still be a pre-tribulation rapture. You just can’t use that verse for the rapture. If you do, you are wrong!
The real big sign for the rapture is the awakening of Israel and the approaching of the antichrist and his peace covenant. (This is absolutely not any previous covenant arising to be confirmed, or any existing deal, or anything close to the Deal of the Century.)
It is very important to know and understand what the antichrist peace deal will be and what it won’t be, because these things are all spiritually charged.
The peace plan of the antichrist: (Daniel 9:27, Daniel 8:25, Daniel 11:21-24)
Let’s look now at the antichrist’s peace plan, so that we can see what it contains, what is still needed to come about and what it is not.
●It will include the breaking of the Abrahamic, eternal covenant God made with Israel. (Isaiah 42:6, 28:18) ●It will include an international Jerusalem (all of it) with a temple on the Temple Mount. ●It will include peace with the Palestinians and Arab neighbours. ●It will include the end of war with Israel’s haters. ●It will involve dividing up the land in major divisions. ●Perhaps the greatest achievement of the antichrist deal will be the establishment of a temple on the Temple Mount and the conversion of Jerusalem into an international city. ●The main thing of the antichrist’s peace deal is that it will be accepted and immediately and come into play, right from day one. ●All nations will be in agreement with it.
The individual who gets this peace plan up and working will be revealed as the antichrist.
The Trump / Kushner Deal of the Century is no such thing.
If you claim that the Deal of the Century is it, then you are saying: ●Trump is the antichrist. ●The Temple Mount is ready for the new temple as per the agreement (of which there is no provision in the Deal of the Century). ●You are saying that all nations (“the many”) have already agreed to this Deal. ●You are saying that Palestinians have accepted the Deal. ●You are saying that peace in the Middle East has been achieved ●You are saying that Jerusalem proper (not a little spot east of East Jerusalem) has been divided out for a Palestinian capitol. And much more, that simply isn’t in the Deal of the Century!
Again, let me remind you that the Deal of Century is null and void because of its rejection by almost all nations, including the Palestinians.
Some say the antichrist deal will be the confirming of the Oslo accord. Others say it will be the confirming of the Deal of the Century. – Hogwash to both!
The original word used for “confirm a covenant” means “to establish a strong deal.” The word does not mean the resurrection of an old null and void deal.
The Oslo accord is so far dead in the water that it could never be resurrected. So many things have changed since then anyway. The Deal of the Century does not fulfil any of the requirements of the biblical, antichrist deal. It would also have to be totally re-negotiated. It is dead in the water.
The Deal of the Century, although rejected, may be revised, to some degree, or see some parts of it being implemented, but as a whole, it does not fit the bill at all.
We have just seen a peace deal between Israel and the UAE, brokered by the US come about. It too has been rejected by the Palestinians. Interestingly there is a peace deal being planned now between Saudi Arabia and Israel and some other smaller Arab nations, including Bahrain, Oman, Morocco and Qatar.
Lebanon may join the peace effort according to flying rumours.
These, collectively may become part of a bigger peace deal, but as said, the antichrist deal revealed in the Bible must include all of the items I’ve mentioned above.
►These individual peace deals with Israel are prepping the world for the big one, but none are the big one yet.
The coming Peace Covenant:
This is what may transpire: It may occur very suddenly – and probably will. It will bring the antichrist onto the stage. It will immediately produce a deceptive peace pact or covenant.
There will be a huge war called the war of Gog and Magog (Ezekiel 38 & 39). It may include the war of Damascus (Isaiah 17) and the Psalm 83 war altogether. It will be WW111.
The end of this war in which God and His Israel are the victors sees the beginning Israel’s eyes being opened to Messiah, which also signals the end or near end of the church age. It also marks the start of a great many of Gentile nations turning to the Lord in the tribulation. (Ezekiel 38:23, Ezekiel 39:29)
This war will break out very soon, and will be hugely devastating. It appears to be a very short and swift war in time. It does contain a familiar “seven-year” period of cleaning up after the war.
The war, in which Damascus and Amman, Jordan are destroyed, will be so intense and devastating that it will last one day. It will be when Israel’s economy is waning, as it is now. (Isaiah 17:4, 14) (See also Jeremiah 49:2, 23) There is much more on the destruction of Jordan (Moab) in Isaiah 16. This could all be part of the Ezekiel war.
Most wars lead to a peace treaty. Out of this war will come the Daniel 9:27 peace agreement and antichrist - inspired real peace deal!
By the way, many biblical scholars claim that these three wars are all separate events because some have different nations involved. All three wars have this phrase somewhere: “And many nations with them.” So you can’t separate the wars by identification of the participants, because many are unnamed. When you look at the geographic locations of the wars, they could quite easily all be the same war, just being spoken of differently by different authors.
A WW111 scenario is the most likely. That is what I sense the Spirit of the Lord is saying.
I have written about exactly this in numerous editions going back 20 years or more, so it’s nothing new for me. What is new is that we are seeing so many of the ducks all lining up in a row to get their heads blown off!
One big reason why these peace deals now can’t be the big one is because war is prophesied to be next on the prophetic agenda. Peace comes after war not before it.
Truth in these days:
In all these things we desperately need the full truth and the leading of the Spirit. We are in a world of growing deception and multitudes of opinions.
The truth is free, but it is of great cost. It will revolutionise you, shatter you and remake you. It will shine on you and give you glorious light. It is absolutely essential.
The ancient walls of Jerusalem are a very present “Bible” full of bullet holes of hatred. They are speaking the eternal truth of God. That truth is cast in those stones and hidden in the Dead Sea pots, now revealed, inscribed on rocks of ages and emblazoned in the Tzizi of the Hebrews.
All these things are coming to life now.
The truth of God’s word has stood securely since the day dot, and now speaks to millions who have ears to hear and eyes to see. Its ancient prophetic predictions are being revealed in our day.
Amazingly, the group-speak, in error, of the masses, and hordes of hell, led by evil spiritual forces, think they can nullify and overthrow the ancient truth and the Ancient of Days as well as the “Desire of All Nations”, (Israel) (Daniel 7:9-10, Haggai 2:7)
We are advised to return to the “ancient paths, where the good way is, where you will find rest for your soul.” (Jeremiah 6:16)
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.”
Truth makes you strong. Error makes you stupid. Removing God’s truth from society puts the masses in terrible agreement! (Hosea 4:1-2)
The masses are of an illegitimate, stolen authority, a lie! They are never right!
The stability of a nation and the whole world in fact, is seen in a number of factors. They are: ●A strong church. ●Strong family units defined by God. ●Protection of the unborn. ●A strong god-fearing government. ●Secure property rights and ownership. ●Strong borders. ●Business friendly laws. ●A strong police force and legal system. ●Strong godly morality in the nation. ●Freedom of worship in all forms for the church. ●Protection of the environment (and red setters)
If you look at what’s going on in the world today, do you see the spirit of Satan at work?
Things are coming together very fast:
Many things are falling into place very fast!
I have just seen a report indicating that a peace deal of some sort is about to come into being between Saudi Arabia and Israel. That’s a big one and would fulfil the prophecy of Ezekiel 38 in which “Sheba” (Saudi Arabia) is seen as an ally with Israel in WW111.
These peace deals with Israel are hated by the militant Arab nations and the Palestinians and their servants and slaves, the EU and UN.
They are important now, because of their frequency and timing, but as said, none are the antichrist peace treaty yet. But they all have a sinister, hidden agenda behind them.
When is the time?
Knowing the truth without the leading and enlightening of the Spirit by the gifts of the Spirit, is knowing “dead letter.” You will get as much inspiration as you’ll get from a Mickey Mouse comic.
2 Thessalonians 2:3-8 “Let no one deceive you by any means, for that Day (tribulation) will not come unless the falling away (departure of the church) occurs first and the man of sin is revealed...And now you know what is restraining, that he (antichrist) may be revealed in his own time...He (the church filled with the Spirit) will restrain until He is taken out of the way (rapture). And then (Lit=immediately after) the lawless one will be revealed...”
I’ve included (in brackets) some key explanations of the words used in the verse above. It paints an extremely dramatic picture doesn’t it? Please read it again and again!
So, what is coming next? When will these things take place?
It is war that is coming next and very soon. It is WW111.
Matthew 24:7-8 “Nation will rise up against nation and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pangs.” (Tribulation)
What this verse is saying is that the birth pangs will precede the tribulation. That is a perfect parallel with what I have called the forerunners of the four riders of the apocalypse.
We are now in the final stretch of birth pangs and forerunners!
►Note that the birth-pangs include war! This points to the fact the war comes first, then a peace deal as a result of the war and then the world goes into the tribulation.
The rapture takes place as this lot begins.
When the time is absolutely not!
The time is not when the “always wrong” brigades of YouTube ministries say it will be.
It will not be way off in the distant future sometime.
It will not be when anyone who says “no one knows the day or hour,” says it will be. It can’t be because of their own confession.
It is very important to properly distinguish between what is going on and what is not. Case in point: Many say the church is in great trouble and falling into apostasy. Many talk of great revival on the go right now, with some churches springing up with over 300,000 members. (India)
Both are true. Some of the churches, particularly in the western nations, and amongst the non-Spirit filled denominational churches, are already stone dead. But others are growing fast, particularly in the eastern nations.
Many are falling away and many are standing strong. It’s all a matter of focus. Don’t focus on one side only, it will mess your balance up and your objectivity.
You see that picture I made up at the top with all the clocks? One of them at the bottom is not a clock but a compass. Just as important as knowing the prophetic time, is knowing the direction you are going!
If we see no sign of the arriving of the antichrist, who will be pre-announced by a coming peace treaty, involving the biblical components mentioned here, within a few weeks, we will have to be prepared to wait another year!
So far we are on track for a “Trumpets” departure. (I hope)

Shalom and grow in His Grace!
