This verse, below was given to me by our Lord in December last year to give to you as the crowning verse for 2020. This was just before the corona-virus became a world pandemic:
The heading is, “Babylon humiliated.” End-time Babylon is the modern world system:
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; 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.”
Romans 14:11 “For it is written, as I live says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me and every tongue shall confess to God.”
Psalm 86:9 “All nations who you have made, shall come and worship before you, O lord and glorify Your name.”
Psalm 72:11 “Yes, all kings shall fall down before Him, all nations shall serve Him.”
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose of this report is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah.
31st July 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Transforming light, life and power:
How do you know that you are solidly in the Lord’s kingdom, saved and growing in Him? What is you measure of salvation and victory?
It really is all about your transformation and it’s working from inside your heart to the outside. Do you have a growing love for holiness or do you still secretly love evil?
So much in the world is falling apart and creating a nightmare of stress and strain.
Growth in the Lord encompasses standing securely, in victory, in times of troubled waters.
A deathly, dark, demonic deception has descended upon the world, painting its beauty with an unholy ugliness.
The raging nights are thick with sick! Even the stars seem sterile and twinkle-less, hiding behind wafts of mysterious mist as we await the great twinkling-eye signal in the clouds.
This is actually the calm before the storm, the storm before the eternal calm. Yes the storm is calm compared to what’s coming and very soon. In fact comparatively, the world is now a teddy bears’ pick nick – a Mickey Mouse party.
Sounds of sirens reverberate, but are gutted and defunded. Their terror has been stolen from them by the terror of insurrection, revolt, mutiny and anarchy.
Romans 13:3 Rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authorities? Do what is good and you will have praise from them...But if you do evil, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain, for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practises evil.”
The cops are to be a terror to evildoers. If not the terrible reversal takes place and the evildoers become the terror to the cops and all civilised society!
The incidents of insurrection are growing, worldwide. The numbers are growing too. Historically, God acts when many people are affected and influenced by an evil work.
There is no safety in the numbers of rebels. There is only real safety in truth, holiness and righteousness.
Like our Lord in hell as a victor, before His resurrection, so we await our resurrection in a world turned to hell on earth.
Why is the champion of love, the God of all grace and mercy hated so much these days?
There is “another Jesus” who is not hated by the world. He has no cross and no Spirit! (2 Corinthians 11:4)
John 7:7 “The world hates Me because I testify that its works are evil.”
John 15:18 “If the world hates you, know that it hated Me before it hated you.”
Psalm 97:10-11 “You who love the Lord, hate evil! He preserves the soul of His saints; He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked. Light is sown for the righteous...”
The modern materialistically orientated church teaches you to “find your life in the world.” (Luke 17:33) They teach you to accept all the things that Satan offered our Lord, and he rejected.
►But, there is great safety in and amongst the ministers of the gospel that are close to our Lord. Those who know Him well, and walk with Him are safe and secure. Their light shines in the dark.
As the world prepares for its new world ruler, soon to emerge, know that there are many that you cannot trust anymore. Politicians, billionaires, businessmen, medical men, media, scientific experts and many worldly religious leaders are all tools of the devil in these days.
The one thing you absolutely cannot do at all these days is trust the media. They are driven by a demon monkey on their backs.
The materialistic orientated churches and all the Spirit-less churches are mostly devoid of any end-time understanding. For that reason alone, you need to be careful of them. It’s also no coincidence that they avoid anything on Israel, and even come against God’s plans for Israel.
►Love for the world of necessity means rejection of Israel! The reason is because Israel is God’s chosen “weapon” to destroy the world.” People may not know that, but spirits do!
God’s light must shine by His Spirit to offer real insight into all things related to Israel.
There are tragic effects of coming against Israel: You will be blinded to the truth, made deaf, have your heart hardened, receive a voice of confusion, and be distressed. You will have your neck under God’s knee and laughed at and scoffed at by God and be broken by Him. (There are verses for all of those things)
It’s no good just having a collection of verses in front of you. You need the light of God to receive His sight and insight, especially today. This is the way of godly metamorphosis.
Only the resurrection power of God through the work of the cross produces godly light and sight which is revelatory and transforming. There is a deceptive light as well, born in pride. Dark light is emitted from the absence of the cross and the Spirit of God.
Lucifer means “light bringer” but his light is dark light. Dark light blinds. “Be careful that the light in you is not darkness.” (Luke 11:35)
Job 18:5 “The light of the wicked indeed goes out, and the flame of his fire does not shine.”
John 9:4 “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.”
1 Corinthians 2:7 “We speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory.”
Things today are headed for a climax. Can you see it?
The end of the new world order is a world built and formed by Satan and with the fruits of Satan: Killing, stealing, destroying and lying. The end of God’s new world – the Millennium is a world built on righteousness, peace, holiness and all things glorious.
►If the world is going to simply recover from the pandemic, which many are hoping for and even some Christians are praying for, and the riots will just go away, and the locust plagues will just disappear, and everyone can get back to their normal life of murdering the unborn, homosexuality and other sin, then that would obviously mean that the rapture / tribulation start is a long way off.
That would mean that “All things are going to continue as they have done.” (2 Peter 3:4)
No, world, your day is done, your cake is cooked, your song is sung!
Jeremiah 50:23 “How the hammer of the whole earth (Babylon / end time world) has been cut apart and broken! How Babylon has become a desolation among the nations!”
You have nothing to lose by surrendering to our Lord now, and everything to gain – for all glorious eternity!
Edition 533: August 4th 2020.
TPS Peace Plan!
This is The Prophetic Scroll’s (TPS) Peace Plan for Israel, the Palestinians and the Middle East and ultimately the whole world. This is the TPS ‘Deal of the Century’!
It’s a play on the Trump / Kushner Deal of the Century, except this is no play. All of these things are of major importance now, because they are about to blast onto the scene.
There is a peace plan for Israel that will absolutely work. It is fully revealed in the Bible. The Prophetic Scroll’s peace plan is this biblical peace plan, nothing more or less.
The Trump ‘Deal of the Century’ contains many aspects of this biblical peace plan as we will see, and a few points that are not. The final antichrist peace plan will also contain many biblical aspects to it, because mixing truth with error is a method of deception.
It is important to know what brings trouble with God. Few people know these things.
My aim is for you to have some basic biblical understanding of these things, so that you will not be easily led astray. This is a playground of confusion.
God’s plans for Israel are already blessed and successful and over 4000 years old!
Israel was created by God as a people for a purpose. The purpose was to be a separated, holy people taking the good news of salvation to the nations.
Israel disobeyed God, rejected the Messiah and was sidelined, as God moved to a new dispensation called the church. The church age is now just about over and God’s purpose for Israel will resume.
Due to these factors, the land of Israel is different, set apart and has a unity within it on these issues which creates strength and a defined purpose.
The dividing of the land of Israel is a major component of the peace plan.
The reason for the land to be essentially undivided is the same as the reason for the church to be united and not divided! (1 Corinthians 1:10)
There is strength in unity and weakness in division. The dividing of the church into factions, sects denominations, cults and more has weakened it.
The land and the city of Jerusalem are to be forever Israel’s because the Jews are called to return to a land friendly and protective of them, for their end-time purpose.
Control of Israel and the city must remain a sanctuary of protection and provision for the Jews even while in spiritual darkness. The land must remain a military stronghold and fortress against enemies.
The land and city is to remain Zionist and not Islamic. Zionism will soon be headed by Messiah Yeshua. Islam is and will remain headed by Satan.
Note in the verse below that God has blessed the Arabs too and made them a mighty nation with much land, but not in the land of Israel:
Genesis 17:19-20 “I will establish My everlasting covenant with Isaac and his descendents and as for Ishmael (father of the Arabs), I have blessed him and will make him fruitful and will multiply him exceedingly. I will make him a great nation. But My covenant I will establish with Isaac...”
Key points Of the Trump / Kushner Deal of Century:
●Israel retains 20% of the West Bank and loses a small amount of Negev Desert near Egypt. ●Palestinians get a pathway to their fragmented territories. Israel maintains control of all borders and military instillations. ●The Palestinians get a small part of land east of East Jerusalem, which is technically not inside the municipal boundary of Jerusalem, thus leaving Jerusalem undivided. ●Israel retains the Jordan Valley and the so-called settlements in Samaria, but Israel will not be able to build new homes here for the next four years. ●The Israeli Defence Force (IDF) will have unlimited access to and control of the settlements, right through to the Mediterranean. ●Israel is cleared to apply sovereignty to Judah and Samaria. ●The plan does not include an immediate Palestinian state but expects Israel to negotiate and plan for it which can only start in four years time on condition that Hamas and Islamic Jihad lay down their weapons. ●A limited number of refugees will be allowed to return but none into Israel itself. ●The plan provides for certain “swop” arrangements to be negotiated in time to come.
This plan does not come anywhere near the Daniel 9:27 peace deal.
The Deal of Century has one large looming omission. It has no leader, proposed or otherwise on the horizon.
This plan really does make the best of an already partially divided Israel. But it doesn’t meet all biblical requirements. To be accepted it would have to be re-negotiated.
Strangers in the night:
Micah 7:8-9 “Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; when I fall I will arise, when I sit in darkness the Lord will be a light to me...He will bring me forth to the light, and I will see His righteousness.
Isaiah 42:16 “I will bring the blind (Israel) by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known, I will make darkness light before them and crooked places straight.”
In these two verses above we have the grand end-time theatre of God encapsulated.
But while Israel sits in her spiritual night, in the dark, strangers and foreigners have walked into the land. These strangers would be all immigrants, which would include the Arabs / Palestinians.
Ezekiel 47:21-23 “You shall divide this land among yourselves according to the tribes of Israel. You will divide it by lot as an inheritance for yourselves, and for the strangers who sojourn among you and who bear children among you. They shall be to you as native-born among the children of Israel. They shall have an inheritance with you among the tribes of Israel. And it shall be that in whatever tribe the stranger sojourns, there you shall give him an inheritance, says the Lord God.”
Leviticus 19:33-34 “If a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not mistreat him, but the stranger who dwells among you as one born among you, you shall love him as yourself; for you were strangers in the land of Egypt, I am the Lord your God.”
But, there are certain conditions upon the strangers / foreigners in the land:
Exodus 12:49 “One law shall be the native born among you and for the stranger who sojourns among you.”
Ezekiel 44:9 “Thus says the Lord God: ‘No foreigner, uncircumcised in heart or flesh, shall enter My sanctuary, including any foreigner who is among the children of Israel.” (No prominence of Islam!)
Isaiah 56:6-7 “The sons of the foreigner who join themselves to the Lord, to serve Him, and to love the name of the Lord, to be His servants; everyone who keeps from defiling the Sabbath, and hold fast My covenant, even them I will bring to My holy mountain, and make them joyful in My house of prayer...”
Deuteronomy 2:5 (To the children of Israel) “Do not meddle with them (Esau / Arabs) for I will not give you (Israel) any of their land, no, not so much as one footstep, because I have given Mount Seir to Esau as a possession.” (Mount Seir is in Jordan)
Here we see that it is fine for the land to contain some foreigners, but they are to fall under Israel’s jurisdiction, occupation, and to honour their host.
Today far too many Christian teachers and preachers are proclaiming that God brought the corona-virus (and other troubles) on the whole world because “Trump divided Israel.” They are all wrong.
Who divided the land?
Israel is already divided. It began with the children of Israel themselves.
Jerusalem has been seized, divided and destroyed many times. She has been destroyed twice, besieged and divided 23 times, attacked 52 times and captured 44 times.
Numbers 33:50-55 Instructions for the conquest of Canaan: “Moses, speak to the children of Israel and say to them: When you have crossed the Jordan into the land of Canaan, then you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, destroy all their engraved stones, destroy all their moulded images and demolish all their high places...but if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then it shall be that those who let remain, shall be irritants in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they shall harass you in the land where you dwell.
Take careful note of this most important verse above. It was the children of Israel themselves, in their disobedience to God, by not driving out those people, that we have the Palestinian problem today and the land and city problem.
One wonders why God did not blindly punish the whole word when Britain divided Israel, and the Ottoman Turks and Jordan!
I’ve said many times that the dividing of the land / peace treaty that is cursed occurs in the tribulation by the antichrist. (Joel 3:2, Daniel 11:21)
You can’t simply erase this history. It has to be taken into account in some way. But it must be in a godly way, preserving the integrity of Israel. Obedience to the mentioned verses about the “strangers” would resolve this.
The Peace Plan of The Prophetic Scroll:
Certain land can be used by foreigners. This would not be on a permanent ownership basis but something like a lease-hold arrangement, where Israel maintains overall ownership.
Israel is not to surrender any part of Jerusalem, defined by its borders to any ‘strangers.’ The Deal of the Century sets apart a small area outside the actual borders of Jerusalem.
Israel is to reclaim sovereignty over Judea and Samaria adding to the control of the Golan.
Israel must maintain all security endeavours including the military. There is to be no infiltration of Islam into Israel proper.
Israel is to be kind and helpful to ‘strangers in the land.’
Israel must beware of the ultimate goal and motivation of Islam, which is to destroy her, and take action where appropriate. Israel is to be the worst nightmare of Hamas, Hezbollah, the PA, and other Muslim-based terror organisations.
Israel is to ignore the threats of the world and call out to the Lord for ultimate protection.
Israel is unique among the nations and has a unique plan of God in the tribulation period.
Israel is to open her spiritual eyes!
Peace comes to Israel / Jerusalem as she opens her eyes to and follows her Messiah, our Messiah – the Prince of peace.
How Israel is to treat her enemies:
If you were honest with yourself and rightly discerned the wrong media, you would know that Israel does exactly as is revealed in the three verses below. Yes there are a few exceptions, but Israel is in fact one of the few nations that treats their prisoners well!
You won’t see this with your head in the mass-media toilet.
Exodus 23:4 “If you meet your enemy’s ox or donkey going astray, you shall surely bring it back to him again.
2 Kings 6:22-23 “You shall not surely kill them (enemies). Would you kill them that you have taken captive with your sword and bow? Set food and water before them that they may eat and drink and go to their master. Then he prepared a great feast for them...
Proverbs 25:21-22 “If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat, and if thirsty, give him water, for so you will heap coals of fire on his head and the Lord will reward you.”
Obviously military defence by Israel when attacked is legitimate. In fact from a point of view of international law, a nation is entitled to defend itself militarily even when constantly being threatened with annihilation, as is the case with Iran.
The mark of the mask:
The Nazi’s introduced the forcible wearing of a yellow cloth star by all Jews to identify and segregate them for discrimination and ultimately their deaths.
The wearing of virus masks today may or may not be effective, but it most certainly has been jumped on by the New World Order crowd as a control mechanism of sorts. This hasn’t fully flourished yet, but it’s on the way.
The masks are a subliminal prepping of the world for the transition of mask to mark of control, which will segregate people and set them apart for discrimination and death.
If you can’t see a coming, renewed Holocaust upon God’s people, which is where all these things are heading, you need to bang your head on the wall a bit to wake yourself up.
Revelation 13:16-18 “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or foreheads and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who understands calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is 666.”
There has been so much speculation about the mark of the beast in the church. It will only appear in the tribulation period, where it will become a mark of identification with the antichrist of some sort.
There is more to it. Look at the words in bold in the verse above and note the words “or”. So it’s not just a mark. People will be given a choice of three things – a mark, or a name or a number.
So what could the three options be? Well, we don’t know yet, but it’s all very likely to be associated in some way with the virus and a coming vaccination.
At this point in time the wearing of masks, vaccinations and the like are not the spiritually charged mark, but it is all preparatory. The church will not be here to see it in finality.
All these things can and most probably will happen very fast and suddenly. I believe that a catalyst will be involved that we do not see yet.
Peace God’s way.
All the world’s troubles are not because Trump divided Israel. They are because Satan wants to stop God’s call upon Israel to salvation and as ministers of the good news to the world. They are because Satan wants to destroy God’s authority and replace it with his.
Yes, dividing the land is risky business, but as you see there is a godly side to the story as well. Peace comes when you do things God’s way.
What a shock to have murdered someone, only to see that person rise from the dead, turn to you, the murderer, and forgive you, and set you free from yourself, and then still give you great eternal rewards of pure glory.
Zechariah 12:10 “I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication. Then they will look upon Me whom they have pierced and mourn for Him as for an only son.”
Now is the time of salvation. Do not wait! The sun is setting on this world!
Bear in mind that two out of ten spies were accepted. Five out of ten virgins were accepted and eight out of the world were saved in the ark.
The point is that a great many who think they are deserving of salvation will not be.
To find out more on salvation, have a look at the “Salvation” link on the right.
This is one of my elephant pictures, which I’ve spiced up with some added inserts.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 532: July 28th 2020.
Prophetic word for the the rest of the year:
As the world spins out of control on many fronts, confusion and distress abound. It’s undoubtedly a unique time in world history. It’s going to get a lot worse fast, but for the believer with a heart after the Lord, it’s an opportunity to grow and stand strong.
Knowledge of what is going on and why is key.
It’s good to know what some people think. Others – it’s a waste of time. It’s excellent to know what the Bible thinks on things. It’s even better to have the Spirit of God reveal relevant Bible verses to you, applied for today.
This edition is most important, containing much insight and serious gravity-filled warning!
Words from the Lord:
The prophetic word the Lord gave me for you for 2019 was Proverbs 28:4 “If you forsake the word you will praise the wicked.” That played out perfectly, but it was a very general word and applies almost all the time to numerous situations. However it did indicate a transitional milestone for 2019.
In December last year the Lord gave me the verse for this year, 2020. It is Isaiah 47:10-11. The key points: Man has trusted in his wickedness, thinking that God will not see him. His wisdom has become warped and corrupted and he proudly proclaims: “I am” (One of God’s titles (Exodus 3:14)). Big troubles will come upon him and “You will not be able to put it off.” Desolation shall come upon the world suddenly!
Obviously this word has turned out to be most appropriate and accurate, especially seeing as it was given to me before any of the current events came about.
But now, I sense that the Lord has an additional word for the remainder of the year. This does not replace the current word, it runs concurrently.
Here it is:
Psalm 2:1-9 “Why do the nations rage and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against His anointed, saying ‘let us break their bonds in pieces and cast away their cords from us,’ He who sits in the heavens shall laugh, the Lord shall hold them in derision (scoff at them). Then He shall speak to them in His wrath and distress them in His deep displeasure. ‘Yet I have set My King on My holy hill of Zion.’ I will declare the decree that the Lord has said to Me, ‘You are My Son, today I have begotten You. Ask of Me and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron; you shall dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.’”
Please note that the words “Break their bonds,” offer incredible insight in the original. The Amplified Bible translates the verse this way: Psalm 2:3 (Amp) “Let us break their bands of restraint and cast their cords of control from us.”
“Their bands of restraint” are nothing but the restraining influence of the Spirit of God in the believer. Some analysts also see this as the unity of “bonds” and “cords” between like minded nations and Israel.
These people want no restrainer. They want nothing of God, His word or His people, controlling them.
Notice God’s response: He will answer them with wrath. He will laugh at them and scoff at them! God Himself will distress them, and break them!
You say that’s politically incorrect. You know what I think of that, but can’t say it here!
Read on my friends, because the second part of the new word for the remainder of the year is another shock:
►Micah 2:1-3 “Woe to those who devise iniquity and work out evil on their beds, because it is the power of their hand. They covet fields and take them by violence and houses and seize them, a man and his inheritance. Therefore, thus says the Lord, ‘behold, I am against them (evildoers), I am devising disaster, from which you cannot remove your necks; nor shall you walk haughtily, for this is an evil time.’”
I hope the gravity and relevance of this verse above hits home!
Perspective: The Prophetic Scroll rejects defunding the police anywhere, and befriends the police, and also stands with Israel as a friend.
So, why do the nations rage in this evil time?
Romans 13 likens the authorities, which would include the police and all government and municipal authorities, to God. They are not God, but their office is of God.
The nations are raging to get rid of every trace of God in every sphere possible.
They rage because they want a world where wickedness has no restraint. For this to happen they must get rid of even the definition of sin, righteousness and judgement.
Knowing these things is what makes Christians unequal with the world, and separates us above it.
They must get rid of Israel, because Israel is chosen by God, and called for a godly purpose, and is therefore not equal with the world.
They are raging against Israel’s future role as His chief evangelist and judge during the tribulation. Israel will be God’s “battle-axe to shatter the nations.” (Jeremiah 51:20)
Psalm 83:3-5 “They have taken crafty counsel against Your people and consulted together against Your sheltered ones. They have said, ‘Come let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more...They have formed a confederacy against You.”
The nations are raging because what is of God is not equal with the unrighteous world.
If equality brings peace, there will never be peace, because people are not equal. They are free. To establish equality, freedom must be destroyed so that equality can be force-created. “There is no peace for the wicked”. So welcome, world, to your equality-based nightmare future.
National equality with freedom removed brings a putrid stench and the fruits of Satan.
What Satan wants is subservience, which is his perverted form of receiving worship.
►Where is all the anarchy heading? What is the goal? The end result is: “You will be as God.” But without God and with god! It’s all heading to the big, tragic replacement of God with god.
Genesis 3:5 “(Satan speaking) “For God knows that in the day you eat of it, your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
This is a repeat of the fall of Lucifer in pre-Adamic times. He said: “I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God, I will sit on the mount of the congregation, I will ascend above the heights of the clouds. I will be like the Most High, yet you shall be brought down to hell.” (Isaiah 14:13-15)
This was reflected in the rebellion of Adam and Eve and their attempt to be as God, led by the word of Satan.
This was then reflected in the attempt by the people of Babylon in their building of a man-made tower to reach God, their way, only to be destroyed by God.
This is where the nations are today – not much has changed!
God’s correct actions:
God will bring evil upon the wicked evildoer, suddenly and they will not be able to put off the troubles. With God’s knee on the unbeliever’s neck – they won’t get it off!
God will laugh at them. He will scoff at the scoffer. He will bring wrath upon them and distress them. He will break them with a rod of iron. God will devise disaster upon them.
So, Mr. Evildoer, you think you can come against the living God? – You fool! You want to get rid of godly restraint, so that your ways can flourish? – You fool!
Nations of the world, you will soon try your stinking hand of death at destroying Israel, because she has God’s will and way embedded in her heart. Have a look at how ‘well’ that will work out for you:
Joshua 11:20 “It was of the Lord to harden their hearts, that they should come against Israel in battle, that He might utterly destroy them, and that they might receive no mercy, but that He might destroy them, as the Lord had commanded Moses.”
God is not initiating all these things. They are all a response to man’s rebellion.
The world at war:
Today the world is at war with God, His word, ways and people. They are at war with righteousness and holiness. They are at war with the prophetic word.
This edition is about a prophetic word for the remainder of the year.
World war is next on the prophetic agenda. It will come in waves and in various hotspots as they flare up. It will all culminate in seven years time at the end of the tribulation period. (No we are not in the tribulation just yet).
It will all ultimately centre on Israel. But we will see political ideologies at war worldwide. We will see wars for land, for agriculture and produce; we will see wars for religion.
The next to make their fateful entrance to the world at war will be Iran, Syria, Russia, Turkey and “many nations with them.” (Ezekiel 38:6, 9, Isaiah 17:4)
People generally don’t like to hear the truth if it hurts or gets them out of their comfort zone. Much of the church has fallen in love, hook line and sinker with money, materialism and everything that makes up the world. They have been led that way by their blind guides whose main aim is to fleece the flock.
But these days are coming to an end. The people have become aware of the frauds masquerading as friends in the pulpits. So, many people are now after a deeper walk with our Lord. The superficial, the Spirit-less, and the counterfeits can’t produce the goods.
Galatians 4:16 “Have I become your enemy because I tell you the truth?”
The world at peace:
Finally at the end of the tribulation, the Millennium will be here. It will be a thousand year rule and reign of pure peace.
Here is something to rattle your cage (positively).
Do you know that when the Lord returns to this earth to judge and clean up the world, you will be with Him and have a role in it?
Revelation 19:14 “And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.”
Revelation 20:4 “And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. And I saw the souls of them who had been beheaded...”
1 Corinthians 6:3 “Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more the things that pertain to this life?”
How much longer, O Lord?
There are many blind parrots and puppets today who continuously chant the same garbage that the Feasts of the Lord have all been fulfilled. That’s not what they mean. Their intention is ruled by the spirit of error that they submit to. What they mean is the major, important prophetic relevance of the feasts have no more prophetic significance.
The seven feasts are now at a major transitional point between the church dispensation and Israel’s time.
Those who claim the feats have been fulfilled are of hidden replacement theology.
The Feast of Passover was fulfilled literally in time and space by the cross of Calvary. The next few feasts were fulfilled in the same manner- literally and exactly by real events. Pentecost is the middle feast and just about to end. It was fulfilled in the establishment of the church age.
If the final three, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Tabernacles were totally fulfilled in the events of the cross, that means their true fulfilment by the events of the tribulation, Second Coming and Millennium are null and void or simply allegorical.
This allegorical method of interpretation opens the door for all sorts of fancy speculation and makes the interpreter a proud, blinded god.
The fulfilment of the first five feasts reveals the only interpretation method you can use, which is literal and physical.
All of this means that the next feast to be fulfilled is Rosh Hashanah (Trumpets). This is where the rapture takes place; the tribulation begins, leading to the wrath of God, the Second Coming and the Millennium.
Rosh Hashanah is where church time switches over to Israel’s prophetic time and the tribulation.
Rosh Hashanah is coming up at the end of September.
Will it be this one or the next? Stay tuned!
The USA in grave danger from the church and the world:
One thing that has bothered me for a long time is the verse that calls Jews home to Israel from the West specifically. That obviously means the US, but also other western nations. Jews are happily seated in the West. What would cause them to come fleeing back to Israel?
The Bible says it will be the ‘roar of the Lion’ that brings them back. But that also implies that the US is not going to be a secure home for them for much longer. (Hosea 11:10)
By the way, this is one of the many prophecies identifying the United States in Bible prophecy!
As goes Israel so goes the world. As goes the US, so go the nations also.
The big reason for the dramas in the world today, is not because Trump divided Israel!! They are revealed right here in Psalm 2 as the reason for the raging nations. The nations want President Trump to drop the “key of David”, which is his support for Israel.
If the nations are raging and the virus is raging all because Trump divided Israel, which He did not do, that means you must pray for America’s downfall and destruction.
If Trump is guilty, of having divided the land, how can you pray that there are no consequences for the US?
►But if the big cause of the nations raging is the attempted breaking of the cords between the US and Israel, you are absolutely right to pray for that attack to fail, and for the survival of the US.
Here’s a thought: If President Trump is born-again as many claim, and if there is a Feast of Trumpets rapture, he won’t be winning any November election - O no, ha ha, he he!
The nations are raging to get their necks out from under the knee of God, but they can’t!
The world is on track for tumultuous times! The god of revolution is marching – right into many pulpits and thousands of pews warmed by idiots.
At the same time world revival is brewing!
One thing I really love more and more about our God is that He is so politically incorrect! Yet it is He, who will be the “political” head of the universe forever! (Isaiah 9:7)
Man’s biggest problem is that he thinks God is like him and therefore has no accountability. Biiiiig mistake! (Psalm 50:21, Psalm 10:13)
The biggest bombshell anyone could have is stepping into eternity and suddenly seeing how wrong they were, and how right they were on some things, and how meaningless their ‘right’ is, without being saved!
In these days there is something very comforting about and in truth as revealed by the Spirit of God.
Don’t delay! Now is the hour of salvation! Now is the hour to wake up fast, repent of all sin, and walk clean, holy and right with God.
This is a collection of some of my art works. I “printed” the leaves into a liquid rubber, painted and texturised them and inserting a blue tree.

Edition 531: July 21st 2020.
Who may abide in the secret place of God’s presence and dwell with Him in safety, security, protection and love in these times? Who may be hidden, secretly in Him and filled with His knowledge, understanding and wisdom?
There are many things hidden to man and kept secret, from the very foundations of the earth, that are to be revealed by our Lord to a few, qualifying people in these days?
These are days of great excitement!
Matthew 13:35 “...I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.”
Job 11:6 “That He would show you the secrets of wisdom...”
Job 15:8 “Have you heard the secret counsel of God? Or do you limit your wisdom to yourself?”
The Bible is full of secret, hidden wonderful gems and treasures of truth. All hidden from the pride and arrogance of man! Hidden from the Spirit-less big deals!
Secret: Strong’s H5641: “Cathar.” Meanings: hidden, concealed. Greek = “krypto”
The meaning of “secret” is krypto! And krypto means: Hidden. Not openly revealed. High quality marijuana of Florida. Superman’s superdog. Okay, you get the whiff!
You need to be well qualified to see, receive and understand these deep secrets. The qualifications are: humility before God, a passionate desire to know Him and them, a passionate desire to enter and dwell in the secret place of His presence.
There are many who meet these conditions for a deeper walk with our Lord, but not the majority by any means. When our Messiah becomes your all, all your troubles seem so far away! The things of the world grow strangely dim, and you will see what a wonderful new world is ahead for you.
Even the trees will dance before you!
But there are many bad things hidden in secret places as well.
Secret deadly horses:
I have spoken much about the forerunners of the four riders of the apocalypse, who release various sets of plagues and judgements upon the earth. It’s worth bearing in mind that we do not see the full effects of all the deadly forerunners yet, never mind the main riders.
But beware; when the starting gates fly open, all the forerunners will be riding into the storm suddenly!
We have seen the forerunner to the antichrist’s deceptions in many areas. We have seen his forerunner, the “crown” (Corona) given to him. (Revelation 6:2) We have seen the forerunner to plagues, diseases, to massive locust invasions, to nations rising against nations. (Ethnic)
Secretly waiting in the wings are the forerunners of war and of natures wrath.
Revelation 6:8 “I looked and behold, a pale (green) horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him, and power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with the sword, with hunger, with death and by the beast of the earth.”
Pale (green) horse: Strong’s G5515 – “Chloros.” Meanings: Green, tender green grass.
This word “chloros” is used in a number of other verses for green grass, shrubbery, trees or bushes.
The verse speaks undoubtedly about the soon coming wrath of nature and environment itself. Many other verses point to and confirm this.
The tribulation will see the wrath of God, the wrath of Satan, the wrath of man and the wrath of nature all on the stage together.
What we have been seeing in terms of nature’s upheavals over the last 2000 years or so, is nothing compared to this. These events will kill one fourth of the world population - a few billion people.
The rider of specific end-time war is still to come. This is of course reference to the big future wars of the Middle East and WW111.
Israel in the secret place:
It’s no secret that God has a chosen plan for His chosen people, the land and the city. But it is a deep hidden secret to the world and many Christians motivated by the blinding power of antichrist spirit.
It’s no secret that I reject totally the short-sighted philosophy doing the rounds today that all the virus problems, ethnic troubles and others are God’s judgement on the world because President Trump divided the land of Israel.
Bongo Bongo Land had no part in the Kushner / Trump Deal of the Century. Why would God bring Covid-19 on them as a judgement for Trump’s supposed action?
Legally, morally and from a common sense point of view, you can’t bring judgment on anyone for a crime that hasn’t been committed yet.
If all the current world troubles are because Trump divided Israel, then he is the antichrist, and on the stage already, because the dividing of Israel in these days becomes an issue when it is done by the antichrist as the tribulation begins. (Daniel 11:39, Daniel 9:27, Zechariah 12:3 Joel 3:2, Amos 1:13)
Study these verses above and their surrounding context. They are all tribulation verses.
If you are teaching and spreading the huge message that the corona virus etc is God’s judgement on the world because Trump divided Israel (which he has not done), you obviously have to have heard such big important news for the world from God.
Some of the teachers, who are repeatedly teaching this, have never been right once on prophetic utterances – never! Their track record is total failure.
If it’s all Trumps’ fault, you are uniting many people around a real false case and you are distracting from the real reason, which is where the attention needs to be.
What then is happening? What is causing the troubles with the virus, the civil unrest and the like?
►It is the attempts by Satan to pry open the hands of nations that hold the “key of David” which is friendship with Israel. Satan wants them to drop that key! (See edition 509 for more, HERE
You must bear in mind that the USA has a long standing, God-ordained and organised relationship with Israel. God has a long standing and organised plan for Israel and her blessed friends!
If you decide to assist the devil in breaking that relationship, by claiming that these big world troubles are because Trump divided Israel – you are going to need a lot more than good luck in the future.
Those constantly pushing the error that Trump divided Israel, thus causing all the world’s current problems are speaking a lie, designed to hurt, injure and bring down the US. These pastors and teachers are working for the downfall of the US.
►In fact I predict that many of those who are so anxious to see the US fall on its head because “Trump divided Israel” will become all out ministers of replacement theology and agents of Satan very soon!
I say it again: The Trump / Kushner Deal of the Century was not ratified or accepted. It is null and void at this stage. To become effective it will have to be largely renegotiated. It must be accepted by all parties to become effective. It is not the antichrist deal of Daniel 9:27, because we are not in the tribulation yet. The condemnation by God for dividing Israel takes place by the antichrist as the tribulation begins.
Let me also say that the Deal of Century may at some future time morph and mutate into a ‘dividing the land’ issue. It is not anywhere near it now. If anything, Trump has been un-dividing the land that the Turks and the British did.
So what is the big cause of all the big worldwide problems?
The call today is the same as in antiquity: “Let My people go!” Not “let My people go” into the arms of Islam, or the world-system (Egypt) But “Let My people go,” to the secret new spiritual Promised Land of salvation.
The reason for all the big trouble is the world and much of the church is holding Israel back. They are trying to wipe Israel off the map of God’s map of soon coming salvation.
Remember how the ‘clever’ people of Jericho tried to stand in the way of the children of Israel on their way to the Promised Land? That worked out well for them didn’t it!
God’s map of Bible prophecy wipes Israel’s enemies off the map!
It is the “father of lies” who has made the big lie acceptable in the world’s sight, which is, that the Palestinians and their religion, Islam have a legitimate right to Israel.
Goebbles, one of Hitler’s Nazi sidekicks and architects of the Holocaust, said “Speak a lie often enough to the masses and they will eventually believe it.” This is the method of the media today. It works!
Applied to Israel, the Jews and the Palestinians - nothing has changed. The EU, the UN and most of the world have fallen under the deadly spell of Satan’s repeating lie! The media is the mouthpiece.
The mass-media is Satan’s keyboard and megaphone.
At the end of the day, you will follow the spirits you have let into your life!
The greatest weapon and defence system Israel has is the Bible in their own hands and in the hands of their supporters, the Israel-friendly church and nations.
God’s word is a secret fiery light regarding Israel. It sheds light, and burns away the junk!
The secret fiery light of the temple menorah is beginning to reveal the cross of Calvary to Israel. Soon they will see it clearly. It will be out in the open – no more a secret for just a few! They will see their Messiah "pierced" for them. (Isaiah 53:5)
Israel’s great awakening is under threat. It is being challenged by the devil and may Christian ministers of the gospel. (Isaiah 52:1, Joel 3:12)
Secret evil places.
Today the church world is filled with terrible, increasing false teachers, charlatans, liars, frauds, false prophets / watchmen, leading the gullible into dangerous error. (But a lot more and that soon.)
The gullible are easy to find and manipulate. They are everywhere.
Proverbs 14:15 “The simple believes every word.”
But beware, Christian leaders who use the gullible:
Deuteronomy 27:18 “Cursed is he who makes the blind to wander out of the way of God.”
Psalm 64:5 “They encourage themselves in an evil matter, they talk of secretly laying snares; they say, ‘who will see them.’ They devise iniquities. ‘We have perfected a shrewd scheme...”
If you are a regular, willing receiver of the ministry of the Christian counterfeits and frauds, beware, they are soon going to be used for the final great deception, filled with evil spiritual power.
Do you really think that at this point in time on the prophetic calendar, God is going to suddenly allow everything to return to normal without large scale repentance in the church and secondly in the nations?
In the church age, God has not been judging nations and cities like He did in the Old Covenant. This has really been the age of grace in that regard. But things are about to change dramatically, with the soon coming dispensation change.
All these things now are the forerunner to the dispensation change.
Acts 17:30 “These times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands men everywhere to repent.”
Acts 14:16 “In past generations, He let all nations go their own way.”
Genesis 6:3 “My Spirit will not strive with man forever.”
►Shaking causes repentance and revival! Don’t miss the opportunity!
Will you keep and hold your faith asthe world falls apart? Don’t lose sight of the supernatural, and its sustaining power, which is going to be needed more and more.
In fact forgiveness of sin is supernatural. Freedom and liberty in Him in His secret place is supernatural. Healing is available and is supernatural. Financial provision is supernatural.
Comfort in distress:
For those in urgent need of psychological help or counsel, or know of people who are in need, please refer to the editions under the “Editions by subject” tab, on the right and under “Counsel.” Edition 83, which I wrote in 2011 is one of them which is most appropriate for today: “Counselling believers in perilous times.” HERE
The great secret to the Christian life is that you can’t do it. The secret is the indwelling God! He is the essence of life. Only He can live the Christian life.
The disciples soon saw the main thing. They noticed that Yeshua had someone else living inside of Him – God. “The Father abides in Me. It is He who does the work”, He said. (John 14:10) This is the secret. It is not performance or formulas, but God in you.
As you take up your cross daily, you die and you decrease and He lives and increases in and through you. It is only as you progressively die to self that you walk secretly in resurrection life, while all else around you falls apart.
Brain power and human reasoning must be defeated before God and in His presence. Brain power is fine in subjection to God otherwise it is the counterfeit of the leading of the Spirit.
The counterfeit of the power of the cross is mind games, intellect and human reasoning.
►Pride squeezes out the cross, and the cross squeezes out pride.
Talk about the biggest mistake the unsaved can make!! Here it is:
Psalm 10:13 “Why do the wicked renounce God? He has said in his heart, You will not require an account!” (Oops!)
1 Corinthians 2:6-7 “We speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory.”
Psalm 31:20 “You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence from the plots of man, you shall keep them secretly in a pavilion (shelter), from the strife of tongues.”
Proverbs 3:32 “His secret counsel is with the upright.”
►One who touches spiritual reality in the secret place will always have an air of difference about them. They will automatically identify with another who has touched the same.
You must at some time go willingly to your own secret Gethsemane. But remember that Gethsemane was part of the final journey to the cross. You must see your need to die successfully!
Only then can you say, “I have been crucified with Messiah.” And remember that crucifixion was for criminals. That’s what you are before crucifixion.
Too many are great spiritual failures because they think they are worthy and good.
Our death to self is not to pay for sins, but to pay for the salvation of our souls. (Mind)
Only in God’s light can you see yourself as one in desperate need, totally undone, and then glorious victory.
Now more than ever, you need to have your own special secret place.
Job 11:6 “Oh that He would show you the secrets of wisdom! For they would double your prudence! Know therefore that God exacts (requires) from you less than your iniquity deserves.”
There is a secret place of great peace in the truth with the King of kings available to you, or you can accept the world’s attempted peace plans which incorporate destroying God’s word and bringing Him under your judgement, with all your kings of fools!
Spirit inspired and led study of God’s word is your greatest hope and your great anchor of the kingdom of godly life. It is your sustaining power and the grace of God to keep you and preserve you.
This is a collection of some of my elephant pictures taken in Botswana.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 530: July 14th 2020.
Censoring God is for dummies. So, this edition is about stupid, dumb people. How about that for a “politically correct” opener?
Censoring God uncensores the devil and releases a terrible symphony of evil on the world.
The definition of censorship is the suppression of, or removal of parts of news, a book or work. It involves the removal of information to change the meaning of the original and replace it with the thoughts and views of the censor or interpreter. Censorship is normally against what is deemed offensive.
Censorship takes many forms and is seen in many things like entertainment, politics, and religion. Perhaps the most sinister form of censorship is seen in skewed Bible interpretation. You can easily change the meaning of a doctrine by editing in or out various things.
In dealing with the Bible we must understand certain principles. Interpretation must be literal and exact except when obvious, as in a parable. Application of a verse is much broader. But in both cases the leading of the Holy Spirit is essential.
2 Peter 1:20 “Know this first, that no prophecy of scripture is of any private interpretation.”
The Bible itself absolutely forbids censorship of itself, and curses those who do so by changing the truth in any way.
Deuteronomy 4:2 “You shall not add to the word which I commanded you, nor take away from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord.”
Revelation 22:18-19 “I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues that written in this book and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part in the from the Book of Life, from the holy city and from the things written in this book.”
The end objective of censoring God is to silence His word and, replace His word with another god and another word masquerading as truth.
Today we see the destruction and removal of everything that is of God and was founded in God. The world is trying hard to censor God and get rid of His word and people, so that another god can come in unrestrained.
The non literal, allegorical, spiritualization of prophecy is censorship. It makes the presenter God’s editor! The success of the early church is traceable to its literal interpretation of scripture. It was the Catholics that brought in the allegorical method.
The unseen purpose of the allegorical method is not to interpret scripture, but to pervert its meaning, making it subject to the interpreter. The authority of scripture becomes the perverted mind of the sin-filled interpreter, opening the door for Satan.
The literal, uncensored, unchanged approach to prophecy does not rule out the use of allegory, symbols or figures of speech and types when obvious.
The great, classical evidence for the literal method of interpretation is seen in the use the New Covenant makes of the Old Covenant, which was literal, meaning that the literal method will continue.
The serious Bible student must not surrender to the ever-changing allegorical interpreter. He will then become handcuffed vulture-food.
You cannot unite man-made philosophy with Spirit inspired revelation. You cannot and dare not use interpretation to support local church orthodoxy.
Jeremiah 23:14-17 “I have seen a horrible thing in the prophets of Jerusalem...They strengthen the hands of the evildoers, so that no one turns back from his wickedness. All of them are like Sodom to Me and her inhabitants like Gomorrah ...Do not listen to the words of these prophets who prophesy to you. They make you worthless. They speak a vision of their own heart, not from the mouth of the Lord...They say, ‘you shall have peace’, to those who walk after the imagination of their own heart. ‘No evil shall come upon you’, they say.”
A friend of mine was recently bemoaning all the big troubles on the go in the world today. She is a half-baked, half- committed, liberal Christian of sorts. (But not a blonde) I asked her three questions:
Do you think homosexuality is a basic human right? Do you think abortion is a basic human right? Do you thing the Palestinians have a basic human right to part of Israel? She said ‘yes’ to all three.
The answer to these questions is: No they are not basic human rights, they are big-time sin.
I said to her, “With views like yours, do you see why these troubles are here and going to get a lot worse”. The big needed fix is repentance, which she could not even see!
Here is the sad state of just what is happening in the world now:
Jeremiah 11:19 (Jeremiah’s life threatened :) “I was like a docile lamb brought to the slaughter and I did not know that they had devised schemes against me...Let us cut him off from the land of the living, that Jeremiah’s name be remembered no more.”
They tried to get rid of the prophetic voice of Jeremiah, calling for repentance! In effect they tried to cut out and censor the voice of God!
Psalm 119:11 “Your word I have hidden in my heart so that I might not sin against you.” (Psalm 37:31)
Do you remember the word given to me by our Lord for the year of 2019? It was “If you forsake the word of the Lord you will praise the wicked”. (Proverbs 24:24) How appropriate that was and still is!
The modern world wants us not to question their wickedness, disinformation and lies! They want us to join them in praising and partaking in wickedness!
Proverbs 4:19 “The way of the wicked is like darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble.”
Job 18:5 “The light of the wicked indeed goes out, and the flame of his fire does not shine.”
Proverbs1:33 “Whoever listens to Me will dwell safely and be secure, without fear of evil.”
How to censor God just like a prime idiot:
●Remove the Bible from society. ●Shut or restrict church activity and evangelism. ●Change the Bible, and remove what you deem objectionable. ●Remove prophecy and introduce allegorical interpretation rather than literal interpretation. ●Introduce false teachers, false prophets and blind, proud watchmen. ●Keep the church divided. ●Reject what God loves and chooses. ●Get rid of Israel’s prophetic role. ●Remove the cross of Messiah and the need to take up your own cross. ●Remove the gifts of the Spirit and spiritual weapons of warfare. ●Give authority to the world and the mass media.
When God censors the devil all is well. When the devil censors God, hell lies just ahead.
Isaiah 30:1 “Woe to the rebellious children, says the Lord, who take counsel, but not of Me, and who devise plans, but not of My Spirit, that they may add sin to sin,” (Media)
Proverbs 17:15 “He who justifies the wicked and condemns the just, both of them alike are an abomination to the Lord.” (Media)
Isaiah 44:18 “They do not know nor understand; for He has shut their eyes so they cannot see, and their hearts so they cannot understand.” (Media)
Matthew 7:29 “For He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.”(Media)
Luke 22:2 “The chief priests and the scribes (Media) sought how they might kill Him...” (The context here is because Yeshua did not do things their way!)
Censoring the things of God is also a form a brain washing. It is the brainwashing of the brainless and those without the fullness of the Spirit in them.
When your brain has been washed of the things of God, your brain is as dirty as a scummy, rabid rat.
Where’s it all going?
I know I’ve used this so many times but it is the truth and needs repeating.
All the big issues on the go now are important in that they are all a vehicle for ultimate control of the masses by a new world order which will create worship of the antichrist.
The virus and surrounding issues, the race riots, the anti-Semitism are all vehicles with Satan in the driver’s seat.
There is an unsurprising consistency in the radical left, the secularists, the socialists, Marxists, communists, atheists, agnostics, and globalists, since the same driver is in the seat of them all.
What an incredible shock they all have coming when they are run over by our driver, the King of kings, the King of all the earth, the King of the Jews, the King of Israel, the King of glory!
If your goal is to find your life in this God forsaken world, you had better start panicking.
Frankie said, “I did it my way”. God will say, ‘sorry, you should have done it My way, now go to hell.’”
You can’t lift yourself by your shoe strings!
Why can’t man save himself? Because he has Lucifer’s sin, transferred to Adam, in his heart and he can’t get rid of it. Man really wants to be like God. Satan, the liar, told Adam, he could be like God. The Babylonians built Babel to reach and be like God. But man can’t get rid of lingering, inbred sin.
What’s this I see? Who’s this emerging from the Garden with a crown of thorns on His head? Why, it’s the Second Adam, with salvation in His wings. Satan lied to man, and in his pride he bought it, but the Messiah tells the truth.
You can reach and approach God only through God’s ordained sacrifice – the cross and the perfection it creates in you through the resurrection.
One of my spiritual fathers, Derek Prince, often spoke of the five prides: The pride of race, the pride of grace, the pride of place, the pride of face and the pride of life. You can write a book on each of these, but in a nutshell they are the problem of modern man. Pride squeezes God out, and elevates himself. Humility before God, squeezes self out and enthrones God.
Pride universally blinds you. It blinds you to God and His ways, to God’s righteousness and to coming judgement. Pride separates you from God and unites you to the king of pride – Satan. (Job 41:34)
Censoring God on Israel:
How you see Israel and God’s plans for the land, the city and the people, identifies very much about you. What you don’t see, speaks volumes about you too.
If you are anti-Israel, anti-Zionist, anti-Jew, you are ignorant of the scriptures, ignorant of God’s will and plans and a simple fool possessed by the spirit of antichrist. You will be blinded to many things.
Far too many Christians today are dead to God’s word on Israel. Their eyes are shut tight; they are therefore pawns in a playground of demons.
As we look into the future through crucified eyes we see correctly and accurately.
It bothers me no more:
We all know about the soon coming war in which Israel destroys the city of Damascus and a few others in Syria and Jordan. The familiar story is that Damascus is the oldest continuing city in the world never to have destroyed in war. Therefore, prophetically, the war must still lie ahead.
That’s all fine, but there was one verse in the Isaiah 17 discourse that always bothered me. No more!
Isaiah 17:3-4 “The fortress also will cease from Ephraim, the kingdom from Damascus and the remnant of Syria will be as the glory of the children of Israel...”In that day it shall come to pass that the glory of Jacob (Israel) shall wane, and the fatness of his flesh shall grow lean.”
Since Israel’s independence she has not waned. In fact she has waxed strong in many areas. But suddenly Israel is in trouble. Covid-19 has devastated the country and the economy in particular. Israel is now sitting with an unemployment rate of 18% and it is worsening fast. Lockdown has done a deadly work (and it may be coming back).
Israel is better off than her neighbours and many other nations, but she is waning! Iran and Syria are just about at their all time worst economically and in other areas.
The stage is suddenly set.
But let’s look a bit further. The verse speaks of the “fortress (military) of Ephraim ceasing.”
Who is end-time “Ephraim”?
I’m not getting into all the details here and now, because it is lengthy. Most Bible interpreters / analysts (including me) believe that Ephraim and Manasseh, sons of Joseph, are end-time USA and Britain. This would include the commonwealth nations. Some believe that these two refer to the Christians of the West.
These are also the “young lions” of Ezekiel 38:13
The important issue is that as Israel is waning, it suggests that Ephraim will cease to be a military fortress at the time of this war.
I believe, with many others, that the Damascus war will not be isolated. It may be part of the Gog & Magog war of Ezekiel 38 &39, as well as part of the Psalm 83 war. Iran is most certainly included in the Psalm 83 war. (Verses 6 &7)
►Could it be that this terrible virus plays a part in the timing of this end-time war - WW111? I would say yes!
It may of course be the war itself that causes Israel and Ephraim to wane, but when combined with the other references in Jeremiah 49, it seems that a sudden external issue is the cause.
Hosea chapters 5 and 6 offer further insights into the relationship between Israel and Ephraim.
Obviously all those who have censored Israel out of their theology and the end-time scenario, would not see or understand any of this.
I do believe that as more of these end-time events begin to play out on centre stage, that more and more Christians wake up and come searching for answers. In repentance they will find them. Without repentance they will go deeper into the thick mud.
The popular, deadly, evil replacement theology is pure censorship of God’s prophetic word on Israel.
Get the garbage out of your eyes:
Revelation 3:18 “ I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in fire, that you may be rich, and white garments that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye-salve that you may see.”
Eye Salve: Strong’s G2854 “Kollourion.” Meaning: A preparation rubbed onto the eyes to clean them and prevent the eye lids from dropping closed.
This is our business today. We must all keep our eyes open and stop them from dropping off to sleep in the midst of great battle for the souls of man.
By the way, times of great persecution always see times of great revival.
This is all extremely serious business!! We are changing people, drawing them upwards with eternal consequences. The stakes are high very high, as high as heaven.
There is no such thing as a godless person! You have God or god in your heart. Heaven or hell is your future!
The true church has Spirit led and inspired watchmen as their guards, with wide open eyes. The counterfeit church has sleeping blind men as their guards!
As God’s editor and censor, you will become filled with the spirit of killing, stealing, destroying and lying - the primary characteristics of Satan! The mass-media are already victims, being supporters of the wicked.
Bear in mind that the ultimate goal of censorship in the wrong hands is the normalisation of sin and false doctrine.
The answer is humility before God, surrender in brokenness before God, and standing impenetrably against the wiles of the devil. Yield to God, resist the devil and you will grow strong in glory.
This is one of my abstract mixed-media paintings incorporating collage elements.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 529: July 7th 2020.
Peace or torment:
Peace is coming. Universal, supernatural peace is coming soon. Peace is a fine, loving, comforting friend. Torment, stress and anxiety are peace-killers. Both are on the stage.
In this edition I have some very comforting peace-producing snippets on the peace-tribulation rapture for you.
Psalm 85:10 “Mercy and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.”
Both peace and torment are fruits of either God, or a god manifesting in you. There are two forms of peace. One is a natural peace, the absence of trouble, and the other is a deep inner God-rooted peace, which is exclusive to believers.
The definitions and meanings of the two words, “peace” and “torment”, speak volumes.
Peace: Strong’s H7965: “Shalowm”. Meanings: Peace (inner), peace (from war), completeness, soundness, safety, prosperity, quiet, calm, tranquillity, friendship.
Torment: Strong’s G929: “Basanismos”. Meanings: Inflicted tormenting on-going torture, agony. A testing touchstone of black siliceous stone used to test the purity of gold or silver by rubbing and stressing, (tormenting) the gold on the stone.
Torment has some similar characteristics to stress and anxiety, but it is generally more intense. Torment and fear are associated. Torment is often directly associated with demon spirits.
1 John 4:18 “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. He who fears has not been made perfect in love.”
In relation to the world, peace is coming, but peace comes after judgement cleans up the mess. We saw that so clearly with the ark of Noah, when the peace-dove returned and the ark came to rest on Mt Ararat after the judgement of God. Ararat means: “The curse is reversed.”
There is also a counterfeit peace in the world. (John 14:27)
The tribulation of torment:
The soon coming tribulation period will be a time of extreme torment and stress. So much so that people will try to kill themselves to escape it, but “death will flee from them.” (Revelation 9:6)
Revelation 9:5 “They (locusts) were commanded not to harm the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. They were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. And their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man.”
Revelation 14:11 “The smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever and they do not rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”
Zephaniah 1:14-18 “The great day of the Lord is near. (Tribulation period) It is near and hastens quickly. The noise of the day of the Lord is bitter; there the mighty men shall cry, that the day is a day of wrath a day of trouble and distress, a day of devastation and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness. A day of trumpet and alarm, against the fortified cities and high towers! I will bring distress upon men and they will walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord. Their blood shall be poured out like dust. Neither shall their silver nor gold deliver them, in the day of the Lord’s wrath.”
Many reading these words right now need to see and understand the foreboding gravity of the situation. If not saved, you need to get saved now. You do not need to go through the tribulation!
John 16:33 “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you might have peace. In the world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer for I have overcome the world.”
God won't override your choice. If you go through the tribulation it will be your fault!
Proverbs 1:24-29 “Because I have called and you have refused, I have stretched out My hand and no one regarded, because you have disdained all My counsel, and would have none of My reproof, I also will laugh at your calamity and I will mock when your terror comes...The they will call on Me but I will not answer; they will seek Me diligently, but they will not find Me, because they hated knowledge (of God) and did not choose the fear of the Lord.”
Value accurate spiritual teaching:
Psychology, philosophy, ideologies, and your world-view are not the same anymore. Today they are all spiritually charged minefields.
Your teaching is vitally important. It lays your foundation and sets your course. It is the real cause of the degree of your spiritual eyesight and insight. It leads you into all truth or repeatedly into error.
Your teaching decides your worldview. It leads to victory or failure. It prepares you for heaven or the tribulation and then hell.
Seeing these things in the world is not good enough; you must have God’s light in your sight to see rightly. You must see things from His perspective, in the confusion.
Colossians 1:28 “Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Messiah.”
Torment and terrible trouble is just around the corner for many masses of people.
You cannot stop Bible prophecy. It is destined to occur. But you can stop and protect yourself for the affects of it.
To be protected, you need to know your enemy, and you need to know how to protect yourself. You absolutely need the gifts of the Spirit, and the spiritual weapons of warfare. All of these come from accurate Spirit-led teaching.
Please note the word the Lord gave me for this year, (Isaiah 47:10-11) at the top of the page. This verse is addressed to end-time Babylon, which is the modern world socio / economic and political order. The verse says that the world cannot stop the troubles from coming.
The people of the world think that everything will carry on as normal and they won’t go into terrible torment or see great sorrow. How wrong they are:
Revelation 18:7-8 “In the measure that she (Babylon the great) glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow, for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as a queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’ Therefore her plagues will come in one day, - death mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.”
Now is not the time to give up or take it easy. Now is the time of salvation. Israel! Now is your time of salvation. Wake up from you deep sleep.
►The big sign of the Lord’s soon coming for the church is Israel’s awakening. The big sign for Israel’s awakening is the church raptured!
Joel 3:14 “Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.”
Exciting days are here. Times of great conflict are here. Times of great clashes in the spirit realm are here – manifesting all around us.
We are to be a blazing fire of enthusiasm and excitement for our Lord. A bright fire produces light and also burns up garbage.
The true church is the verge of her greatest victory ever. We are about to enter the eternal kingdom of eternal peace.
A big slap in the face for communism / socialism, which is trying to create a new world of peace and equality, is the eternal state of the true Christian. We will not be equal!
We will be as different as the stars and as different as gold silver and precious stones. We will only be equal in the foundation – the cross.
What a terrible thing to get to the end of your life, having done your very best all your life, and find it all rejected by God, because salvation is not works-based.
A minister full of life is a fraud. He must be full death and life. He must be full of the work and effects of the cross on the flesh and the results of the cross which are resurrection, pure life in Him.
Great, powerful proofs of a pre-tribulation rapture:
Some of these things are so obvious, yet they have eluded so many Bible teachers.
►One of the great proofs of a pre-trib rapture is the fact that the church does not appear in any of the verses dealing with the tribulation in the book of Revelation, after the messages to the seven churches, until the return from heaven at the end of the tribulation.
►Why in the tribulation period is there no evidence of the celebration of the Lord’s Table? There is only record of the celebrating of the Lords feasts? Communion is specifically a church-age convocation. Its absence in the tribulation speaks!
Does that imply that the church is missing from the tribulation? It most certainly does, especially when added to the other points.
►There is also no evidence of the laying on of hands to impart spiritual gifts amongst the tribulation saints. Again, that silence speaks.
►There is no evidence of the gift of tongues, a church-age gift, being used in the tribulation period. In fact quite the opposite is the case. “Tongues will cease” in an instant. (1 Corinthians 13:8) That will be at the rapture.
These things are distinctly church age characteristics, missing in the tribulation period!
►The Bible talks of the separating of the sheep nations and goat nations in Matthew 25:33. This event clearly takes place at the end of the tribulation, at the Second Coming and not before. So, who then are the sheep nations?
They are the none other than the tribulation saints, which includes all those who were saved during the tribulation period, both Jews and Gentiles.
If there were to be a post-tribulation rapture, this would mean that the sheep nations must include the church. It would mean that the church goes from the tribulation into the Millennium to repopulate the earth in natural bodies, with longevity restored.
That creates havoc with numerous other verses; these ones below are a case in point:
►The church in heaven at the marriage feast, is identified as those wearing “fine linen, clean and white, which is the righteousness of the saints”. (Revelation 19:8) Then a few verses on, we see a great company of saints on white horses again wearing clean, white, fine linen accompanying our Lord on a white horse back to the earth at the Second Coming (Revelation 19:14)
We see saints in heaven in clean white linen, saints on horses in clean white linen returning to earth at the end of the tribulation. That can only point to a pre-tribulation rapture.
►At the Second Coming only the saved are left on earth to go into the Millennium. Sheep are saved and goats (unsaved) go into the lake of fire. At the rapture the unsaved are left on the earth. (Tribulation saints get saved as the tribulation continues).
►There is a remarkable and great difference between the coming of the Lord at the rapture and at the Second Coming. The former is secretly in the air, in a flash of time, in a moment, and the latter sees our Lord slowly, gradually returning to the Mount of Olives, as He left. The verse remarkably seems to stress the point that His feet touch the ground.
That means you can’t mistake the one for the other.
As you look at these points above, and there are many more that I’ve spoken of in numerous previous editions, you should be comforted that we are not going through any part of the tribulation period. You may rest well, at peace knowing these things.
After the rapture there will be some who didn’t believe in the rapture, at the marriage feast. They will be easily identified by the egg on their faces.
Prophetic expectation causes excitement and diligence in watching. So watch and don’t let your heart be troubled, don’t get sidetracked being a turkey. (At the marriage feast you don’t want to be served a dish of flavoured turkey food!)
Biblical Spirit-led truth is peace-producing, genuine love in action, but the world has turned it into hate speech! Don’t fall for that. Be bold, be strong.
There is no peace for the wicked (Isaiah 48:22)
These verses below show the horror of those who think they can build a new world of peace their way, without sin being removed by the cross!
Jeremiah 23:16-17 “Do not listen to the words of those who prophecy to you. They make you worthless; they speak a vision of their own heart, not from the mouth of the Lord. They continually say to those who despise Me, ‘The Lord has said you shall have peace’. And to everyone who walks according to the imagination of his own heart,’ no evil shall come upon you.’”
Ezekiel 13:10 “They (prophets) have seduced My people saying ‘peace’, when there is no peace – and one builds a boundary wall and they plaster it with untempered mortar...it will fall.”
Isaiah 59:6-8 (Separated from God) “...Their works are works of iniquity, and violence is in their hands. Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood. Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they have not known, and there is no justice in their ways. They have made themselves crooked paths; whoever takes that way shall not know peace.”
The peace of God:
Isaiah 9:7 “Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end...”
Psalm 37:37 “Mark the blameless man and observe the upright; for the future of that man is peace.”
Psalm 119:165 “Great peace have they that love your word and nothing causes them to stumble.”
Isaiah 32:17 “The work of righteousness will be peace and the effects of righteousness quietness and assurance forever.”
Peace matters. Eternal life in peace matters.
Being warned so that you are not caught unaware and prepared is extremely positive, not negative!
How good it is to have a world view and in fact a general philosophy of life that is laced with living truth. Imagine getting to the end of your life and finding out that you were right with God, and not only that, but that you will be rewarded with eternal rewards!
Imagine getting to the end of your life and being greeted and welcomed by the King of Kings and Lord of lords, - the King of the universe.
Imagine getting to the end of your life, and the grandstands of heaven give you a standing ovation to welcome you in. (Hebrews 12:1)
How wonderful to cross the line into eternity and the light shines on your life and you have a few regrets, now forgiven, and an ocean of comfort, peace and beautiful immortal majesty. How amazing is the thought of paradise soon to come, with brilliant radiance, deep joy, and peace.
You can sense it when someone wants to be your friend. Often times you can just sense it! Well the King of the universe wants to be your best friend and give you peace.
Romans 13:12 “The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness and let us put on the armour of light.” (1 Corinthians 9:24)
To embrace God’s truth is to put your arms around it and embrace peace.
How thrilling and exciting it is to be in service of our Lord and to be secure in His kingdom of glory.
I took the picture of the stralizia in my garden. I Imprinted the leaf into some liquid rubber, painted and texturised it and merged the two.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
