|This ministry has a distinct kingdom, Messianic vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for the Jewish people and the church. My position is pre-trib! Personally: I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share these great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God.|

- The Middle East flare up has calmed down for now. The oil price has retreated hard, the gold price has fallen a little too as international pressures ease. We are back into prophetic limbo – for now.
- Iran nuclear deal on brink of collapse as Britain, France and Germany trigger "dispute" mechanism to confront Iran directly.
- Iran sees largest conversions to Christianity in world in percentage terms. Afghanistan is second, and Egypt next. Anti-Semitism worldwide, continues to grow – inexplicably!

Time the eternal element:
Time is a most precious gift. Be careful to divide you time wisely and spiritually productively.
A long time school friend of mine, an ex airline captain and legendary acrobatic pilot was killed a few weeks ago as his plane crashed. I had met with him recently and knew he was not saved then.
The point is that our time is of utmost value and can get snatched away from us in a flash. – Ready or not!
I can’t imagine the horror of the unsaved, stepping into eternity and then discovering that the price for their salvation had already been paid, and they refused it.
I have come to a hairs breadth of losing my life back in the 70s before I was saved. When I think back of that it makes me shudder! In fact if you’re not saved, and if you step out of bed, you are on thin ice with a fire below it!
So many people spend their time on futile, purely materialistically orientated things. They have wasted their lives and sold themselves to self, the world and the demonic, knowingly or not.
But know this: Your great gift of time has a time-stamp on it which is running out!
There is great security in knowing that our God knows all about us and what we will do with the time He has blessed us with, which makes you a very important person! Those struggling with purpose, meaning, and “who or why, am I” questions, this is for you:
The following is a compilation of the entirety of Psalm 139, showing your value and importance to the kingdom:
“O Lord you have searched me and know me, you understand my goings and my thoughts. You are acquainted with all my ways. Every word on my tongue, You know altogether. You have hedged me in from behind and before. Where can I go from Your Spirit? Your right hand shall hold me and lead me. I am fearfully and wonderfully made. You saw me before I was formed, and in Your book I am written. How precious are your thoughts to me? Search me O God and see if there is any wicked way in me and lead me in the way everlasting.”
I hope the above Psalm is music to your ears and light to your life.
You are of major importance to our Lord and you need Him more than you may think!
The greatest hoax in world history is that God is not, and you don’t need His salvation and holiness! The greatest hoax is “Tomorrow is another day; everything will carry on as normal.” If you are not saved or just living for self – you have been solidly hoaxed, hoodwinked and hooked!
Most people today are rebels to the living God and His word and don’t even know it. But He knows it and knows it well – every little bit!
Dealing with end-time rebellion to God, and homosexuality in particular, these amazing verses below offer quite an incredible insight! You would be wise to take heed.
“God gave them up to uncleanness and the lusts of their heart”. (Romans 1:24) “God gave them up to vile passions, exchanging what is natural for that which is against nature (women with women, likewise men with men) Even as they would not retain God in their knowledge; God gave them over to a debased mind”. (Romans 1:26, 28)
And now observe the ending this discourse:
Romans 1:32 “These knowing the righteous judgement of God, that those who practise such things are worthy of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practise them.”
Here we see a clear condemnation of those who simply “approve” of these sins. Be careful what you agree with and give your approval to, because God puts you in the same boat as them! In the verse below we see the positive side of what we approve.
Philippians 1:9-10 “I pray that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offence until the day of Messiah.”
Today the world is on short-time fuse, spiralling downwards. Firstly they overlook evil, then permit it, then legalise it, then promote it, then celebrate it and then persecute those who still call it evil!
What a mess this world is in and it’s time is just about up! The shofar is blowing!
The cross produces resurrection which saves and makes holy. Those who are enemies of the cross are by extension not saved and are unholy. Those of “another Jesus” are cross-less and in the same situation. They must save themselves. They are cursed. (Galatians 1:8, 2 Corinthians 11:4)
You can’t kill a resurrected Lord and His word! The Bible therefore, is the only truly resurrected book in the world, being the word of the living God. That also means that all things related to God’s call and plan for Israel is found in resurrection, so to speak. You can’t kill that which is resurrected!
Many ministers of the gospel are primed to be great end-time deceivers, especially those who justify and approve the mixture of paganism and truth, and those who approve of replacement theology. All ministers who lessen the importance of the cross and resurrection are a dangerous commodity!
In these end times, as prophesied, we are seeing a massive increase in lying, deception, false prophets, and seducing perverse spirits all in rebellion to God and His word.
Unsaved, be careful, your time is almost up. The fire below is burning a big hole right through the thin ice you are on! And there is a welcoming party of horror and terror awaiting your arrival! In your welcome party are many leaders, celebrities, peers and people of note - the ones who you respected and followed all your life.
Isaiah 14:9 “Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming. It stirs up the dead for you, all the chief ones of the earth, it has raised up from their thrones, all the kings of the nations.”
Isaiah 5:14 “Sheol (hell) has enlarged itself and opened its mouth beyond measure. Their glory and multitude and pomp, and he is jubilant shall descend into it.”
It’s time to know God deeply and intimately. It’s time to be known by our Lord, it’s time to stand out from the crowd, be holy and different. Time is running out!
Edition 58. 7th November 2010
In this edition:
●Summary of pointers towards the Lord's coming
Jerusalem Post launches new "Christian edition"
●This new monthly edition is a response to the "love shown the Jews by many Christians" The editors say: "It is our hope and wish that Christians and Jews get a lot closer together." The Jerusalem Post is a respected, but secular newspaper. It is now going to facilitate this hope. The latest edition runs this story: "Could Zionist Christians be the lost tribes of Israel" It's a powerful story!
●I will be presenting the Jerusalem Post editor with material for this new, exciting publication.
Summary of signs of our Lord's coming
With so much information on the coming of our Lord scattered in many editions, It's appropriate to do a summary of all the major points in one edition, so here we go. (I've added some new material as well.)
Isaiah 33:6 "Wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of your times and the strength of your salvation. The fear of the Lord is His treasure." The original word used here for 'stability' comes from the root word for a gyro. In the old days they had big gyros (flywheels) in the hull of ships. They would start these gyros spinning and waves or storms could come from either side, and the ship would stay on course. It is wisdom and knowledge of God's word that will keep us stable and on course through the intense storms that are coming.
Much more important than knowing all the ins and outs of prophecy is knowing our Lord and being known by Him!
Can we trust Prophecy?
Yes we can, but more than that, prophecy speaks to the authenticity of the scriptures in a larger sense as well.
There is an absolutely astounding aspect to number in scripture. People are still finding more and more of these incredible intricacies in the Bible. The Bible was originally written in three alpha-numeric languages. This means that the letters of the alphabet also have numeric values. So you can add up the numeric value of a word. Numbers also have meanings in the scriptures. For example 1 is unity 2 is division 3 is trinity 4 is the world 5 is grace 6 is man under sin 7 is spiritual perfection 8 is resurrection 13 is rebellion and so on.
Every single title for our Messiah in the Bible adds up a multiple of 8. Every single name of the enemies of God in the Bible adds up to a multiple of 13. There are many thousands of others. The bottom line is that these point to the fact that the Bible is miraculous and supernatural. The mathematical odds of this being coincidence are monumental. More on this in edition 13
Prophecy itself also speaks of the veracity of the scriptures. All of the prophecies of the Old Testament fulfilled in Old Testament times were fulfilled 100% literally with not one miss. All of the prophecies of the Old Testament fulfilled in the new were also fulfilled in the same manner. Some were very detailed like all of those of the coming Messiah.
All of the New Testament prophecies fulfilled in this era were also fulfilled exactly. The most important ones here relate to Israel becoming a nation again and Jerusalem being restored to the Jews.
If prophecy was fulfilled literally and exactly in time and space then obviously the remaining prophecies will be fulfilled in the same manner.
Those who claim that the Bible (including prophecy) is all open to interpretation and allegorical have no answer for this.
You are gambling against immeasurable odds if you reject the literal meaning and message of prophecy.
Our Messiah is coming soon:
Many have set dates for the coming of the Lord and missed. We are commanded to look for the coming of our Lord and to know the signs. If a date setter gets it wrong, what have you lost? Nothing at all. I would rather look and be wrong than not look at all and be blind to the signs! There are some whose date setting material has been very superficial, but others who have put much prayerful work into their analysis. They were wrong on the date, but they caused me to give their view serious consideration.
The big things is...what if one of the views is correct? Think about those words for a moment!
The problem with setting any exact date is that there are different calendars and time frames out there. We have the Jewish calendar which had a 360 day year and the Gregorian calendar which has a 365 day year.
So which do we use? And then there are leap years to take into consideration. And then do we factor in the fact that both calendars have been changed along the way? Can you see the problem?
But there is a very easy way of cutting through all the variables.
Our Lord says that He will return during the generation that sees Israel become a nation again. The Bible declares in Psalm 90:10 that a generation is 70-80 years long. The most agreed upon consensus is 70 years. Israel became a nation in 1948, so if we add 70 to that we come to 2018. Then we have to subtract 7 years for the tribulation period, which brings us to 2011 for the start of the tribulation and rapture (if you believe in it).
Now, if we use the 360-day calendar then the end of the 70-year generation after Israel's birth will be 2016. Come forward 7 years for the tribulation comes to 2009! We are most certainly not in the tribulation period now, so this view is wrong. (If we use the 80-year generation, it's still way ahead)
There are numerous other views out there of how long a generation is, so it's difficult to be 100% sure which one is right. One of them is right! Anyway, who cares, the main ones are near enough! Of course it's nice to know as much as our Lord permits us to know, but really, the actual day is not the most important issue. Getting, and being ready is!
Having said that there is a very strong possibility that the tribulation will begin on a the feast of trumpets in 2011. (See edition 41 for more) if not, I will continue to look, watch and be ready. (Note I said possibility!)
What to look for:
There are two comings of the Lord. One for His church and one back to the earth with His church to set up the Millennium. The great majority of the prophecies relating to the second coming of Our Messiah fall in the seven year tribulation period. It's important though to realise that some of these events will have forerunners or "birth pangs"
It's important to know what to look for in regard to the coming of all these events.
There is one single big thing. Israel is Gods time clock. It's not the stars or planetary alignments or some stupid Mayan calendar...its Israel. Everything hinges on and centres around Israel Jerusalem and the Jewish people. Yes there are many other signs of the times, but Israel is the clock.
The main signs that will occur shortly before the coming of the Lord
These are some of the main prophecies I've dealt with in previous editions:
●The birth of the nation of Israel in a day in 1948 and the return of Jerusalem to the Jews in 1967. This is found in many prophecies of the Old and New Testaments. (Isaiah 66:7-8, Amos 9:14-15, Matthew 24:32.)

Who is this soon coming Messiah?
He is not some gentle Jesus that you can bring down to your level. He is returning as the God of the universe, all creation and every atom of your being. He is the supreme judge of all and has the keys of heaven and hell. He is a jealous God and a consuming fire.
Before He created the heavens He was. He holds the universe together with His word. He is entirely Holy. His Kingdom is eternal. He is the Prince of Peace, the King of all kings, Lord of all lords, King of glory, the King of the Jews. He is the beginning and end of all things. All will fear and fall before Him, for some too late. His Kingdom will never be destroyed. He is the one who gave you your life, for His purposes and plans. His word is supreme, the highest of all words. He is the One and only way to salvation.
If you do not bow before this Great God now, you will later on at the Great White Judgement in shame, regret, weeping and wailing, but it will be too late.
All arguments against Him will cease in His presence. All the opinions of the world and all it's evil ways will be silenced and destroyed by our King of holiness. Glory, majesty, holiness, peace and victory are the characteristics of the future.
The prophecy jigsaw puzzle is falling into place rapidly painting a clear picture. Only some can see it. Too many, like in the days of Noah, couldn't care less. In fact that itself is an amazing end time prophecy.
In these days of prophetic fulfilment, we need to be ready in heart and be prepared with Spirit-led knowledge. Amazingly very few churches these days preach or teach on these subjects, just at the time they should be! They are preparing their flocks to be lukewarm to the things of God and on fire for materialism and the things of the world.
It all begins and ends with God's work in the promised land, and with the people of promise and the city of Jerusalem. There are far too many ducks lining up in a row now for it all to be coincidence.
This really is the most exciting time to be alive. We have purpose, meaning, hope and a deep inner peace in these dangerous, perilous days!
Hebrews 9:28 "To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time."
Hebrews 10:25 "Exhort one another, so much more as you see the Day approaching."
Matthew 16:3 "You hypocrites, you know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times."
Isaiah 62:1 For Zion's sake I will not hold my peace and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest until her righteousness goes forth as brightness and her salvation burns as a lamp."
Heaven or hell:
Shock and awe is coming. When you stand before the soon coming saviour of the world with the keys of hell in His hands, what will be the expression on your face? Will be shocked like never before? A great many will be shocked in disbelief, but it will be too late. Disbelief should have been belief in our Lord and exclusive salvation through the cross of Christ
When you stand before the King of the universe soon, will it be with too-late tears of regret or tears of unspeakable joy as our God welcomes you into His kingdom? I can't imagine the shock and regret that will befall all the unsaved! The only way to stand before our great God and King with confidence is by bowing down to Him now.
This is a Gustave Dore woodcut representing Joseph revealing himself to his brothers. What incredible drama this event must have been. Much more dramatic than this is the soon coming recognition by the Jews of their own Jewish Messiah, Yeshua /Jesus
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace!
