What the world wants is a better place. They are working to try and bring peace to the world. They want a better life. Satan will oblige – for a while! Then comes swift, sudden destruction. The funny thing is that the people of God have already found what they’re looking for: Eternal peace, victory and joy. God’s “better place” is already here! The kingdom of peace is here, in our hearts and is soon coming in full universal manifestation!
Colossians 3:1-3 “If then you were raised with Messiah, seek those things which are above...set your mind on things above, not on things of the earth.”

Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah and to identify the rift, and the needed restoration. There is much in the church that needs to change before it can be fully reconciled with the Jew. Likewise, changes in Jewish thinking are also needed.

Shabbat Shalom to all:
The devolution and decline of society:
We have just started the season of the feasts of the Lord, with Purim a few days ago. Purim is all about the failure of Israel’s enemies to defeat her. Purim is centred on Esther, who was chiefly responsible for saving her people. Are you called to be a modern “Esther?” Many readers are!

The spirit of error, untreated, advances like a cancer and mutates into a curse. Teachers or leaders who’ve fallen under a curse then become cult-like with an equally deceived following. I have witnessed many people fall right into this trap of late.
Some have turned on me with a vengeance calling me various names because I don’t and won’t support their doomed error, and because I warned them many times!
When you constantly resist and reject the things of God in favour of error, or rampant sin, you get “handed over.” (Romans 1:24-26) At this point, pride takes control and your conscience is seared and your free will becomes an enslaved, slave, controlled and dominated by the god of sin.
Enduring error, because it is a spirit, produces strife, stress and argument with God. “There is no peace for the wicked,” (Isaiah 48:22) no matter how much they cry, “Peace, peace!” (Ezekiel 13:10)
As goes the spiritual, so goes the natural! This is a spiritual principle. A lot of the reason for the chaotic, devolving world is the compromise of the modern church! For example the sequel or fallout of replacement theology in the church is seen in anti-Semitism in the world.
When God and His word are cast down by society, it has terrible knock-on effects. The nation begins to fall. A nation under God does not mean a born-again nation as such. It is a nation which has employed, elevated, and respects general godly biblical principles for a nation.
Throw God’s word out and the slippery slope of doom begins. Life becomes valueless except as a political football to score points, as we see so clearly in the mass-media.
The world walks over God’s word, which they have cast down. But the believer walks through God’s word ingesting it, consuming it and filling himself with wisdom and light!
In a world where God has been cast out, godless educational institutions become the gates of hell for the youth.
When God is removed from society, law becomes lawlessness driven by the law of sin and death. The church becomes a democracy and a dead tool of the system. When you forsake the law you are a law unto yourself and “yourself,” is fully blinded to spiritual reality.
When God and His word are cast down, Israel would have to fit in with the world-system and submit to the evil god of inter-faith and to Islam’s goal. The Jews would become nothing more than political chess-men, and Jerusalem becomes the devil’s pawn.
When God and His word are removed from society, the true born-again Christian must also be rejected or removed by persecution and martyrdom.
When God’s word is cast down, salvation becomes a mere, dead word and nothing more than a change in political ideology to suit the god of the world and his doomed hordes.
Right now we are seeing a massive worldwide spike in the martyrdom of Christians. The mass-media keeps their biased mouths closed, resulting in few being aware of it.
The mass-media hates God and His own. Their bias has turned from prejudice to hostility and now open hatred. This is clearly seen in their silence on the massive increase in the killing of innocent Christians worldwide.
►For the true Christian, martyrdom is the ultimate slap in the face for their murderers and supporters by the surrogation of silence. The martyr is promised special eternal reward, over and above other rewards he will receive.
The martyr dies, but receives the eternal Crown of Life!
It is the unsaved Jew, the Muslim, the counterfeit Christian, and the like, who should weep and howl and mourn with many tears when they are killed or die. They are not saved. Don’t cry for the true Christian martyr! Cry for yourself, lying mass-media, and destroyers - you are the ones who need a lot more than sympathy!
Here are just a few verses I’ve put together which succinctly describe the course of this present world. I’ve not included any comment. They speak volumes:
●Those who forsake the word (law of God) will praise the wicked”. (Proverbs 28:4) ●“There is no truth or mercy, or knowledge of God in the land, people break all restraint, with bloodshed after bloodshed and the land mourns.” (Hosea 4:1-2) ● Righteousness stands afar off, for truth has been cast down in the street”. (Isaiah 59:14) ●“Horror has taken hold of me because of the wicked who forsake your word (the law of God)”. (Psalm 119:53).
2 Thessalonians 2:11 “For this reason (not receiving the love of the truth), God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie.”
Job 38:15 “From the wicked their light is withheld...”
Psalm 36:9 “In your light we see light.”
You can’t live in peace in error! You can’t make peace with the devil, especially on his terms, and in violation of God’s word. There is a peace with the devil, which comes about when he has conquered a human heart, he has victory then, but it is the victory of hell. (Isaiah 14:9)
Psalm 43:3 “Send out Your light and Your truth; let them lead me and bring me to Your holy hill.”
Psalm 60:4 “You have given a banner to those who fear You, that it may be displayed because of the truth, that your beloved may be delivered.
Edition 56. 22nd October 2010
In this edition:
●The me-now generation
The me- now generation
The great error of this day is: "Yes you can." I've got news for you. "Yes you can't"
How many times have you heard: "God wants you to have it all, He wants you to live an abundant successful life"?
Well, this may come as a shock: God wants to kill you!
All those who want to die, please stand in a line right here.
Why is this line so short?
You see, the modern church has failed to "rightly divide the word of God" We need to make a clear distinction between temporal and positional truth. If not we will get all sorts of things wrong, mixed up and out of context.
Let me explain. Temporal truth is all the Bible verses that relate to 'self' or to my pride. Positional truth is all the verses that relate to my position in Christ or in Him. It relates more to spiritual reality.
Positional truth Temporal truth
We have the mind of Christ
Have a mind to suffer
We are alive with Christ
I die daily
We are seated in heavenly places in Christ
Take up your cross daily
We have abundant life
If you find your life you will lose it
We are more than conquerors in Him
O wretched man that I am
Greater is He in me
In me dwells no good thing
We are joint heirs of all things
I count all things as loss
I am strong in the Lord
I must decease
These look like big contradictions, but they are not. Its all about applying scripture to the right areas of life. Almost all of the "In Him" or "in Christ" verses relate to our glorious raised position in Christ and in His kingdom. As you can see we need to apply the right verses to the right areas of our being. It is the self-life that needs to die, decrease and suffer under our cross.
In the original, the Bible uses a number of different words for the English word life. "Psuche" refers to our psychological state or soulish realm. It's the domain of our mind and thinking. The word "zoe" means spiritual life. This refers to our new re-created spiritual state. "Bios" is the word for biological life and "biotokis" is the word used meaning lifestyle. They all have different meanings and applications.
Where the Bible says "Identify yourselves with the humble" It uses the word for lifestyle which is "biotokis"
It is our "psuche" that needs to decrease and die daily. It is our "zoe" that is already re-created and risen. You need to apply the right versus to the right areas.
Romans 8:6 "To be carnally (soulish) minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace, because the carnal mind is enmity against God, for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can it be."
If the "carnal or soulish mind is death", obviously this is where the problem lies and this is the area that needs to "die daily"
It's only when the cross has done its deadly work in the self life that we are ready to be messengers of the cross.
If you apply all the positional truth scriptures to the temporal or self life area you will get completely out of balance, just like the modern prosperity bunch.
If you only see all the temporal truth scriptures, you will be overbalanced and a dreary, legalistic turkey.
If you try to apply all the positional truth scriptures to the temporal or soulish area, you will become extremely self- orientated. You will believe that it's all about "me now" and "my rights."
Of course God does want us to have a successful life, but success God's way involves death to self!
When I am dead to self I will have no trouble exalting the virtues and rights of God. I will see things His way and when the ways of the un-regenerate world contradict God's ways, I reject one and chose the other.
God's rights verses human rights:
The top image is of one of the EU buildings. It's surprisingly similar to the Babel painting.
Europe was once in the dark ages. The light of reformation and spiritual enlightenment came its way. Now Europe at large is the world centre of spiritual darkness.
The word Babylon or Babel means confusion. But if you study it you will see it means more than that. It means to 'mix together'. This was just what Babylon was renowned for. They mixed together all sorts of beliefs thinking that this was the way to God and to peace. God destroyed them.
The main issue with human rights today is that it mixes all sorts of values and things together thinking that this is the way to God and world peace. Human rights presume that all have equal rights and that there are no absolutes.
Now, of course human rights are right in many areas. Racism for example is unbiblical.
But there are many areas where human rights conflict with God's rights.
The ultimate end of human rights is the removal of God, His word and his family.
Humanism and atheism are twins of hell.
Human rights of the modern era are born in the godless religion of humanism. Humanism is a Christ-rejecting, satanically inspired religion in which the human being is exalted as supreme.
Here's a good example. Do the Palestinians have human rights? Yes of course they do, just the same as anyone. Do the Palestinians have rights to part of Jerusalem and Israel? Absolutely not. God has chosen this for the Jews. This isn't because the Palestinians are less important. It's simply because this was and is God's choice! This seemingly little issue of the human rights of the Palestinians to part of Israel will soon become such a big issue it will draw in the whole world and divide it.
There will be a few (like myself) who will stand with God and His word against the human rights of the Palestinians to the land of Israel.
God has set up three institutions for a strong nation. These are family, church and government. Homosexuals want to redefine family. Homosexual rights were born in pride. Church and government are both under attack as well. Can a nation run by humanism survive? Never! These issues are a lot more than human rights. They are essentially devil-rights to and will result in the downfall of many nations. Those three institutions, family church and state are like a tripod. If you take out one leg its going to fall over.
2 Timothy 3:1 "In the last days perilous times will come, for men will be lovers of themselves..."
God sees abortion as murder. When pregnant Mary met with pregnant Elizabeth, unborn John the Baptist "leapt with joy" in her mother's womb. There are many other examples of a foetus being a living person in the Bible. Humanism sees abortion as a woman's right. Ironically, many who support the murder of the unborn reject the Biblical command to discipline their children. They say they believe in "children's rights"! They believe in children's rights but also murder them!
The national constitution of the country in which I was born used to begin with the words: "In submission to almighty God we declare that..." It has since been re-written and changed. It now begins with: "We the people declare that..." There were many things that needed to be changed, but not the replacement of God with "we the people". Guess who will have the last laugh?
Psalm 2:1-4 "Why do the nations rage and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves and take counsel together against the Lord...He who sits in the heavens shall laugh. Then He will speak to them in His wrath."
There is a very powerful principle relating to government revealed in Hosea 4:1-10 "There is no truth or mercy of knowledge of God in the land" It goes on to reveal the end result speaking of the "breaking of restraint", the "land mourning" because of the questioning of the authority of the priest.
I could go on and on, but the bottom line is that we need a Biblical world view. I'm not talking about a theocracy, but a world view in which Gods rights are recognised and exalted above the rights of the state and humanism.
The Ten Commandments (all ten of them, which includes keeping the Saturday Sabbath holy) used to form the basis of the legal and political systems. Today the world system is built on sand and a huge storm is coming fast.
Actually the real reason the world has become dominated by the variable values of humanism is because the church has slinked away from its responsibility. In its quest to become relevant, the church has become tolerant of the world and it's ways. Tolerance, my friends is the last evil virtue of a collapsing society. Because the church no longer defines right and wrong and it accepts the garbage of the world, the world itself can't see the difference.
We are called the "light of the world". The light of the church today is darkness. Its a self obsessed, consuming, me-now light of confusion.
If our Lord preached the same message as many churches do today, He would never have been crucified.
I was chatting with a friend the other day and he said he wished I wouldn't be so dogmatic about these things. "Other religions have equal rights to God and heaven, All roads leads to Rome" he said!
All roads lead to Rome!!! Oh yes. If you're on the road to Rome you're on the road to hell!
I got an email from a reader the other day saying: "I wish you wouldn't talk about hell so much" No, is the answer.
"The axe is laid at the root of the tree" declares the Bible. If you kill the tree at the root all the fruits and branches die. Not just one or two. When you apply the axe to the root of the tree of self and me-now, all the fruits of humanism and everything else that's not right die. This allows God's ways to develop fully in us with His fruits.
Here are some characteristics of the me-now generation:
●They're in love with the things of the world.
●They're in love with their own selves and their own opinions and ways.
●They're essentially greedy and misers.
●They are blind to prophecy and the signs of the times.
●They will be filled with pride.
●They will be inconsistent, unstable and sufferers of stress.
●They will be blind to their own critical situation.
●They will have no understanding of or fear of hell.
●They will have no fear of God
Here are some characteristics of a spiritual person:
●They will walk in the fear of God and in humility before Him.
●They will be full of all the fruits of the Spirit.
●They will be in inner rest and without stress.
●They will have a desire to please others.
●They will walk in truth, and see error while being led by the Spirit.
●They will be dead to the ways of the world.
●They will be holy and forgiving
●They will accept Gods authority and will themselves have authority.
The revival cry:
Today the church world is screaming about revival. It's a revival of me-now, self-obsessed ways.
Real revival is nothing but a new beginning in obedience to God. This is why the great majority of the church will be led astray by the false prophet in the coming days. They are entrenched in their half baked ways.
For revival to hit this world the church needs to be revived into the truth first. A revival of the same old garbage dressed slightly differently is a waste of time. The church needs to get rid of all humanistic thinking and the re-gurgitation of their Babylon-based ways.
Truth is the big thing. Truth is the daughter of God. Truth rightly divided and applied is safety. Truth is the enemy of error. Truth is the way to peace. Truth is the way foreword. (Bible truth that is)
The church needs to prepare for a great revival which God Himself is just starting to initiate. Its a revival involving the Jews coming to salvation. Unfortunately much of the church will stand in God's way and proclaim that its ways are right and it has the answer. They will not change. They will be cut off.
Romans 11 speaks of the re-grafting of the natural olive branch that was cut off, back into the tree. This it says is the Jews. It goes on to warn the wild olive branches that were grafted in (the Gentile church) that they will also be cut off if they come against Gods new work with the Jews! Verse 22 "You also will be cut off"
I wonder how many church leaders today know of the severity of this warning?
Not only will much of the church stand in God's way, it will be part of the coming persecution of the Jews.
There will be no revival until there is a return to truth. Be very careful of many of the modern revivals. They are revivals of half truths, church doctrines exalted above God's word and revivals of barriers to the Jews coming to our wonderful Jewish Lord and Messiah.
Why is the church silent on Israel? Why will much of the church stab Israel in the back?
They will do so because they will follow blindly the satanically driven world drive to give the Palestinians their human rights.
The Messianic movement today rejects the traditions and convocations of the church. They will be an inviting and welcoming home for the Jews.
If you want to get someone really mad, just come against their traditions. Wars have been fought over this. Tell a nice happy traditional church member that his traditions of replacement theology, Christmas, Easter and many others are born in the occult and he gets mad!
Church beware...God is just beginning to do a new thing which includes none of the old church traditions. His new thing will involve the Jews en-mass. Are you ready church for this. Are you ready to change your traditional make up drastically? Are you ready to welcome the Jews into your new church with new Hebraic traditions?
The church needs to repent of being an obstacle to the salvation of the Jews. They need to repent to the Jews.
Unfortunately much of the church will be cut off. They will go with their dead humanistic, Babylonian traditions. they will try to revive their dead ways and they will come against those who are moving with God in His new ways.
Much of the church will be like the older brother, getting jealous over the returning prodigal son.
Others will welcome the Jews in, but will tragically try to mould them into their evil old traditional ways. "Come now Jew boy, now that you're saved have a ham sandwich."
Thankfully many others will throw a party like you've never seen before, with no ham!
What I've just spelt out is exactly what is revealed in prophecy.
The me-now generation runs deeply into all areas of modern life, the church included. Me-now thinking dominates in the form of humanism and human rights exalted above God's rights. It all operates through 'self' gone to pot. In the church, the lack of the application of the cross leaves 'self' on the throne. This is the surest way to deception.
The answer is the cross and death to self and a return to truth.
Isaiah 54:13 "All your children shall be taught by the Lord and great shall be the peace of your children. In righteousness you shall be established."
John 14:27 "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you, not as the world gives you, give I to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither be afraid."
Isaiah 48:22 "There is no peace says the Lord for the wicked."
Heaven or hell:
Young woman there is only one way to heaven. Yes you had better ponder the issue because your eternal destination depends on your choice! Don't follow the masses blindly. What if you do and they are wrong? Once you step into eternity, you won't be able to change your mind. Please make the right choice, I think I would like you for an eternal sister.
These people all thought they were right as they welcomed Hitler into Berlin. I wonder how many of those people in this image are now in hell. The point is simply that the majority are not always right. If you put your trust in the majority consensus you are in grave danger. Tragically, this is all coming again soon, with a large part of the church waving the anti-Israel flag again!
This is one of my own paintings. Its loosely based on the menorah. The menorah is a symbol of light. In Zechariah 4: 1-6, Zechariah has a vision of a menorah. Then God interprets it in verse 6 saying "Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit says the Lord. This is a mixed media collage in which I've used multiple layering techniques.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace!
