|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.|

- Netanyahu speaks with Trump about annexing the Jordan Valley, to bring it under Israeli control. It is the area running from the Sea of Galilee to the Dead Sea, now part of the so-called West Bank, occupied by the Palestinians.
- UK elections on December 12th are tainted with the anti-Semitism of the Labour Party. (Israel’s Chief Rabbi)
- We continue to “tread water” prophetically, with no new major events. Things continue to race ahead generally, but await the next big moves.
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
Isaiah 30:10 “They say to the seers, ‘Do not see’ and to the prophets, ‘do not prophecy to us right things; Speak to us only smooth things, prophecy deceits’.
Jeremiah 5:31 “The prophets prophecy falsely, and the priest rule by their own power; and My people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end.”
Jeremiah 9:6 “Your habitation is in the midst of deceit. Through deceit they refuse to know Me, says the Lord.”
Proverbs 12:1 "Whoever loves instruction, loves knowledge, but he who hates reproof is stupid."
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!
God, the nations and man:
There are many parallels and principles in the Bible, both Old Covenant and New, that strongly relate to each other and work in the same way. In this report I want to share some parallels between God’s dealing with a nation and with an individual.
A nation under God is built on three godly pillars: ●State (government) ●church and ●family. All three are under massive attack, for the satanic purpose of undermining and bringing a nation down.
Within these three areas, the attacks expand into other related areas which also undermine and eventually bring down a nation. These include: ●Open borders, ●unchecked state corruption, with no accountability, ●exploding government and personal debt, ●cutting down military expenditure. ●the rejection and loss of biblically-based morality and values. ●rampant aggressive sin on all fronts.
And it’s all related in many ways to the casting down of the word of God. (Hosea 4:1-2)
It is not just a nation that is subject to these things. It all relates in the same way to you as an individual. Have a look at the items under the bullet points above again and now apply them spiritually, to the individual. Do you see how well all the principles fit?
The day you push the word of God aside is the day you enter spiritual darkness and step onto Satan’s slippery slope. The further down the slope you go, the more slippery it becomes and the harder it is to get back.
Psalm 35:6 “Let their way be dark and slippery, and the angel of the Lord pursue them.”
You may think you are fine due to your education, the opinions of the media, your peers and friends, which you join in thinking and action. No matter how eloquent, they are they are no substitute for revelation knowledge of the Spirit of God in His word.
Much of your success as a Christian begins with your thinking. It is so important to think right and in line with God’s word.
Right doctrine in the right Spirit, with right thinking and acting produces right living, as we cultivate truth, and actively root out error.
New world thinking has stormed into the church – unannounced! These so-called Christians of mixed spiritual breeding walk in the light and darkness! But the Bible says that light and darkness can have no fellowship with each other. (2 Corinthians 6:14)
It is Satan who makes you stupid. He easily controls idiots. So he makes people idiots en masse, by having them cast down the truth in unison. The first work of Satan is to disguise himself to the masses. Then he advances like a deadly Trojan horse, and enslaves people with his group thinking and group speak.
Tragically many wolves in pulpits are making things much worse. They give no warning to the sheep of the dangers out there for fear of offending them. Offence-less Christianity is a lie from hell.
So many wolf-led churches are collapsing today – and then the wolves run away.
John 10:12-13 “He who is a hireling and not the shepherd, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf captures (harpazo / raptures) the sheep and scatters them. The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep.”
This tragic verse above spells out some shocking facts that are so relevant to today!
Note that the concern of the wolf is immediately for himself. He runs away and Satan raptures the saints and it’s not to heaven! The false teacher scatters the sheep!
How can you repent if you are taught that sin is not sin anymore, but a human right!
Enslavement to sin is endemic in our day. Once you submit your thinking to it, it’s like an open tap that floods sin into your life, and the group thinking of the deceived masses is the strength behind it.
The answer is not to turn a blinded eye to it or to legitimise sin. The stress and torment and tyranny created by sin in an entire nation or an individual can only be killed by the cross and true deep repentance, resulting in a change of thinking and actions.
Sin floods your thinking, but eventually it leaves you in a dry desert of desolation.
I have become most shocked to see how many ministries these days have welcomed in a mixture of God’s word and witchcraft. Once the door has been opened to witchcraft (in any of its forms) an illegitimate authority comes into play and the people become enslaved.
This is especially endemic in Africa, South America, China and other nations.
It is repentance and correction that cleans the slate and brings an ocean of refreshing into your life.
Here is the glorious course for the repentant believer, in three verses:
Acts3:19 “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.
Isaiah 42:16 “I will bring the blind 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.”
Matthew 13:16 “Blessed are your eyes for they see and your ears for they hear.”
The world rejects the ways of the word, but many Christian reject the fullness of the ways of the Lord and mix in all sorts of philosophies, false doctrines and demonic trash.
Mixture produces a hazy, cloudy unclear position. The ungodly part of the mixture nullifies, neutralises and invalidates the whole – always.
1 Corinthians 10:21 “You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the Lord’s table and the table of demons.”
Your prophetic food:
Part of a pure, full gospel means accepting, and believing Bible prophecy, which makes up one third of the content of the Bible. It is God’s seal and stamp of the veracity of His word. Those without it are their own authority in a world of variables, full of confusion, incomplete, and powerless.
You can set your course after the Son of man, or the son of sin! One will save you and set you free and the other will enslave, you, capture you, and destroy you.
You can sit down at a beautiful “table in the wilderness” of this evil world and be thoroughly fed, filled, nourished and refreshed by our Lord.
Psalm 78:19 “They spoke against God: They said, “Can God prepare a table in the wilderness?”
Psalm 23:5 “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.”
What a surprise:
Hebrews 10:35 “Do not cast away your confidence (thoughts), which has great reward.”
This verse above is truly incredible – thank you Lord! The word “confidence” is associated with your thoughts. Note that even your right thinking has great reward coming for you. How amazing is that.
Edition 69. 14th January 2011
In this edition:
●Wise words of old (part three)
Wise words of old (part three)
●This edition is aimed more at your heart than your head. You can know many things and still have a rotten heart. You can have a heart after God and be in ignorance of much truth. Both a soft heart and a head of wisdom are needed. Please also see: "Wise Words of Old" parts one and two. They are: edition 17 and edition 40.This is the third in the "Wise Words" editions. I've divided it into two sections. The first is a collection of some of my favourite words, from God. These are living words that have become a part of my life. They are more important than any words that have ever come from the mouth of any human being ever.
The second section is a collection of quotes from one of my favourite men of God. These are men who've been influential in moulding the foundations of my life. They're old-school disciples, who are long gone, but with a living, deep message. If these words were relevant back then, they are much more so for the neglected hearts of today's superficial, self-centred believers.
*** Please be aware that many of these quotes are from memory as the original books are long gone. Therefore they may not be word for word. It's the message that counts.

Psalm 30:10-12 "You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, to the end that my glory shall sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God I will give thanks to You forever."

Wise words from men of God:
A.W. Tozer (1897-1963)
●"If I see aright, the cross of popular evangelicalism is not the cross of the New Testament. It is rather, a new, bright ornament on the bosom of a self-assured and carnal Christian. The old cross slew men, the new cross entertains them. The old cross condemned; the new cross amuses. The old cross destroyed confidence in the flesh; the new cross encourages it."
●"The world is perishing for lack of the knowledge of God and the church is famished for want of His presence."
●"As sunlight falls on an open field, so the knowledge of the holy God is a free gift to men who are open to receive it. But this knowledge is difficult because there are conditions to be met and the obstinate nature of fallen man does not take kindly to them."
●"These quasi Christians follow a quasi Christ. They want His help, but not His interference. They will flatter Him but never obey Him."
●"To be Bible taught and not Spirit taught is a great error."
●"The Pharisees looked straight at the light of the world for three years and not a single ray of light reached their inner beings. The gospel is light but only the Spirit gives sight."
●"Self is the opaque veil that hides the face of God from us. It can only be removed by spiritual experience, never by mere instruction. There must be a destructive work of God in us before we are free. We must invite the cross to do it's deadly work within us."
●"The man who takes up his cross will soon find that he is moving away from the grave. Death is behind him now and a joyous increasing life is before him."
●"Because the world is whitewashed, blind people posing as believers can't see it at all.
●"A whole new generation of believers has arisen believing that it is possible to accept Christ without forsaking the world."
●"To accept Christ means that we are to accept His friends as ours, His enemies as ours, His ways as ours, His rejection as ours, His cross as ours and His future as ours."
●" When we are too glib in our prayers we are speaking to ourselves."
●"We can prove the quality of our truth by its effect on our self-life God must have our full consent to kill and displace our self-life with Person of Christ. Another certain test is this: What is its effects on our relationship to the world. A further test of the genuineness of our spiritual experience is its effects on sin and our desire for holiness."
●"Our Lord cannot fully bless and use a person until He has fully conquered him."
●" You can and must make your thoughts a clean sanctuary. Our thoughts are the decorations inside the sanctuary where we live. Your thoughts pretty much decide the mood and climate of your heart."
●"Be hard on yourself, easy on others. Bear your own cross, but don't lay one on another's back."
●"Compromise will take the pressure off. Satan will not bother a person who has quit fighting. The cost of quitting will be a life of peaceful stagnation...a cost we cannot afford."
●"Satan cares little whether we go astray in false doctrine or become stagnant. Either way he wins."
●"It would be near impossible today to get anyone to attend a meeting where the only attraction is God and a cross of death to be taken up."
●"Grace saves, but it doesn't save you and your idols."
●"If your life does not worship God, your lips do not worship God either."
●"It doesn't matter how many times you've been through the Bible. It's how many times its been through you.".
●"Refuse to be average, let your heart soar as high as it will and your roots be grounded in God. This is the way to an abundant, fruitful life."
Derek Prince (1915-2003):
●"Islam has 99 names for God, none of then - Father"
●"When God promises to bring Israel back to their land at the close of the age, He still calls it "your own land". In God's sight the ownership of the land has never changed or never will."
●"The Bible never reveals it's secrets to the casual enquirer, the curious or the irreverent sceptic. To them its foolishness."
●"When you fear God you fear nothing else".
●"We must push alone into God's glorious divine presence. Moses was branded by God as he sought Him alone. Jacob wrestled alone with God before becoming Israel. Paul sought the Lord alone in the desert for 14 years before his ministry really began. Daniel had dramatic celestial encounters alone with God. Jesus fasted alone in the desert for 40 days. John saw into the future alone on Patmos".
●"The need for solitude and quietness was never greater than it is today."
●"The Bible is the prison window of this world through which we can see the glories of eternity. If you have the Bible deeply embedded in your heart you are truly free from the world's prison."
●"A single sentence from the mouth of God has more wisdom than all the books of the world."
●"All roads but one lead to Rome and eternal judgement. Only the road lit by God's word leads to eternal glory."
●"We need to understand that God doesn't just tolerate us, His favour is upon us! He is passionately committed to us. We don't have any reason to doubt our access to Him."
●"I'm convinced from the scriptures, that poverty is a curse. If not, why do you work so hard to get rid of it? If it's a blessing, why not pursue it."
●"Satan makes slaves, God makes sons."
●"Our basic problem is that we don't realise how valuable we are."
●"The key to happiness is not being loved, but having someone to love."
●"God is concerned with the restoration of two peoples to whom He's related by covenant, which He has declared He will never break. The first is Israel and the second is the church."
It's only with a heart and soul surrendered to our Lord and His word that we're really able to soar like an eagle and break free from the chains of bondage, depression, stress and everything else that comes with the territory of this world.
It takes time and diligence and denial of self to break into this glorious liberty, but, it's worth every little bit.
we are fast entering what the Bible calls "perilous times". This will seen on every front and will cause many to fall away and become spiritually shipwrecked. This tragic time will deter many from their God-given calling and place in our Lord's body.
This is the time to strengthen your foundation and everything that's been built upon it by God. The storms are coming!
In the midst of spiritual anarchy, chaos on every front, and terrible times, God has a plan of victory for those that will walk in His ways. Please don't neglect your heart. Cleanse it and fill it with our wonderful Messiah's word and ways.
The most important thing of life, with eternal consequences is to know God and be known by Him. How do we get Him to know us? 1Corinthians 8:3 "If anyone loves God, this one is known by Him". Here is the amplification of the original words used. "If anyone loves God truly, with affectionate reverence, prompt obedience and grateful recognition of His blessing...he is known by God."
The frightening opposite to this is recorded in a number of verses relating to professing Christians standing before God in judgement- "Depart from me, I never knew you."
Jeremiah 5:22 "Do you not fear Me, says the Lord, will you not tremble at My presence."
Daniel 2:22 "He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him."
Heaven or hell:
Old man, you've been blessed with a very long life. What did you do with it? Did you live for yourself or did you live for our Lord? Did you take the trouble to know God? Did you prepare yourself for eternity. Did you simply follow the traditions of your people or did you break free into God's plan for your life? Once you step over the line into eternity, it's too late to make any changes!
Old lady you.ve also been blessed with a long life. What did you do with it? What a tragedy to be given a long life and waste it all. What a tragedy to have many years of potential growth in the grace of Gods will and to miss it all and be cast out into an eternal hell. Very soon you will know whether you've made the biggest mistake anyone can ever make or not!
Here is a painting representing the Apostle Paul by Rembrandt.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace!
