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

The spread-rate of the coronavirus is starting to turn down as can be seen in this graph for the US. What adds more weight to it is the fact that this is a repeating pattern in many other places. Its early days, and it is still spreading, but it seems to have peaked.
- Some tribulation verses imply that people will carry on as normal with marrying, commerce and industry and the like. This is not a picture of lockdown!
- Gordon Brown calls on world leaders to form a “temporary” world government to resolve the medical and economic crisis.
- Now that Netanyahu is finally confirmed as the President of Israel for the next 18 months, expect some action against Palestinian aggression.
- Jews and Bible believing (evangelical) Christians are being blamed for Covid 19 by an article in The New York Times albeit indirectly.
- Two nights ago I was awakened suddenly at 2.30am by a loud sharp alarm bell of sorts going off. It was nothing I had heard before, or was from the area. It was so loud and vivid it shook me. I have had a similar experience before with a trumpet blast. I’m no dramatist with things like this. The sense I got in my spirit was one of urgency!

Shabbat Shalom to all!
When the pressure is on:
What do you really do in thought and action when the pressure is really on and all things begin to shake?
It’s like the good -old toothpaste tube law: When you squeeze it, what’s inside comes out. This is when you see what’s really in your heart! “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” (Matthew 12:34)
Out of the heart under strain do you hear the mouth speak, shout, screech, swear, stress out, or be silent? Is your thinking stained, strained and stretched by stress?
Pressure sharpens your focus! It can cause you to curse or cause incredible blessing, if you change your focus to the things of God. Yes, a virus can change your focus to victory.
Tests create endurance, or in some cases cause people to give up.
Today we have a multitude of spiritually superficial, shallow shepherds, blind as a bat and deaf as a doornail to the voice of God, and with the mouth of many parrots leading their blind flock.
A lot of what you believe is related to the spiritual input from your spiritual fathers are and who you hang around with and identify with. In this day, you need to make sure who your spiritual friends are! You need to forsake many, and gather new ones.
I would feel a lot safer learning from a hell-fire and brimstone preacher of the cross than the modern, be blessed, be prosperous, be happy, positive-only preachers.
To construct this modern positive-only gospel, you have to remove all the “hard sayings and severity of the gospel. Their gospel becomes a half-baked ear-tickling tickle.
Endurance produces character. This is why a lot of the modern church is so spineless.
Some churches, you dare not walk into. They need a big sign outside saying “Enter at your own risk” or better still, “Danger, do not enter”
James 1:3 “Know that the testing of your faith produces patience (Lit=endurance) “
When the pressure is on beware of the pressure to err! Many times pressure causes you to run away and take the easy, wide road with the multitudes. That’s when you fall into error and then fear. When you have decided to take the easy erroneous road, don’t think God will help you along.
Isaiah 30:28 “His breath is like an overflowing stream, which reaches up to the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of futility; and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err.”
If your heart is not right with God, why should He lead you into all truth? The verse above applies to the world, but the principle is universal.
We are seeing a massive rise in deceptive teachings particularly relating to Israel, to the pre-tribulation rapture and the tribulation period.
As God prepares to move in new ways with Israel, there will be alarming and dramatic signs. The thrilling sounds of the shofar are shattering the midnight sounds of silence over Jerusalem even right now. (Literally!) The alarm of awakening is sounding; the ancient walls of Jerusalem are vibrating and reverberating with the breath of the Lion of the tribe of Judah – arising ready to roar onto the stage!
This is the time to reach out to the Jews with the good news of salvation in their Jewish Messiah – our Messiah. This is the time to throw out and destroy the obstacles to them coming in to the kingdom, created by the church.
If God has finished with the Jews, as many teach, how do you explain the great regathering to the land? Do you think that is just God having fun, or that it’s just meaningless coincidence?
In this day you are in trouble if you do not know how to discern the voice of truth.
You cannot obey the voice of the Lord if you can’t hear the voice of the Lord. The voice of the letter of the word is not the voice of the Lord. It is dead letter and produces death, legalism and bondage. (2 Corinthians 3:6, Galatians 5:9)
These are very dangerous days, not so much because of any virus, but because required repentance is being ignored and the source of “truth” for the people is the devil’s deceivers – the media.
A good starting presumption is not to trust the mass-media. Regard it with automatic suspicion. Obviously I’m not talking about a hard news event, but all their “exalted” opinion pieces.
Isaiah 2:12 “The day of the Lord of hosts shall come upon everything proud and lofty, upon everything lifted up.”
What follows is some of the sermon or book titles of my own spiritual fathers. I cut my spiritual teeth on this lot, starting in the late 70s. Some of these great men of God would be scorned and rejected today. But their work stands with transforming power, for the few that find them.
These wonderful discipleship teachers of old, pulled the rug out from under you, condemned the hell out of you, and often times left you floored, in surrender to our Lord, in a manner that caused you to be so very thankful! I would trust my life with them!
My aim is to show that just in the titles alone, you can see that they are of another glorious world: (My library contains thousands more.)
Derek Prince: ●Fierce times are coming. ●I will shake all things – the nations, the church and Israel. ●Facing the last days without fear. ●Living in a world falling apart. ●Evil forces of the end times. ●The Spirit of Antichrist ●Disasters that are about to come upon the earth. ●Facing God’s judgment.
Watchman Nee: ●Not I but Christ. ●The messenger of the cross. ● A living sacrifice. ●The spirit of judgement. ●Salvation of the soul. ●Love not the world.
Charles Finney: ●How to be free from the world. ●Victory over the world.
AW Tozer: ●That incredible Christian. ●The divine conquest. Gems from Tozer.
Looking at the titles should give you an idea of the content. How many of these titles do you hear preached today? By the way I have ‘devoured’ these books, tapes and teachings and thousand more about eight times each. I have about 300,000 pages of hand written notes from them.
Be blessed as you prepare your heart mind and soul for the glorious appearing of our Lord – soon and very soon!
Edition 80. June 8th 2011
The deeper, glorious Christian life.
●See also edition 45 titled "Secret keys to spiritual success."
What a terrible thing it will be to face the horrible times we're going into without a deep knowledge of our great King and saviour Yeshua / Jesus. To know Him and be known by Him is the way to peace and joy and the knowledge of His amazing grace.
There's a very easy way to stay blinded to the need for a real active, deep relationship with our Lord and that's simply to do nothing and carry on as always.
Once you apply the cross of Christ into your life and set your heart and mind to know Him, a great awakening begins. You begin to see things in a whole new way...God's way! Radical changes begin. Evil starts to flee and visions of great glory and wonder start to dominate your life. A God-ordained identity crisis begins in every area of your life.
Victory over sin becomes much easier. Your entire life's focus changes from a 'me now' life to an outward focused life where a true genuine Biblical compassion for others takes over.
You begin to see what holiness is and what sin is. You begin to see and understand why God has, and will judge all sin and unrighteousness. You'll even see and understand why hell is a necessary creation of God to protect universal holiness.
You begin to see kingdoms in conflict, you see the war on the go in the spirit realm for the eternal lives of people. You'll see how evil works, how Satan operates.
Perhaps the most important and wonderfully devastating thing that happens when you embrace the cross, is God opens your eyes to see how much you need Him and how hopelessly lost you are without Him.
The cross is an instrument of death; as you take it up, it delivers you to death. It kills you and brings you down into brokenness and humility. It leaves you helpless and worthless. This is great enlightenment! From here God Himself begins to bring you to resurrection life; His life of victory. God will never bless you with this glorious life until He has conquered you.
Now of course, God brings us to spiritual salvation the moment the new-birth occurs, but we're talking about the salvation of the soul...the ongoing daily work in our lives.
You can't know this incredible resurrection life without the taking up your own cross willingly and dying to self and the world.. These keys to victory are conditional.
Satan operates in the life of the believer through the self or flesh nature, the world system and the demonic. You can't even see this without the destroying work of the cross in your life.
Yes our Lord paid the full price on His cross. We can't add to that. His cross positionally paves the way for us. But we must take up our cross daily. We must die daily. We must decrease so that He increases.
You can't defeat the devil or even see him and his ways in your own self effort or strength. The amazing thing is that it's impossible to live the Christian life! Nobody can live it. Our risen, resurrected Lord of glory can live this life perfectly. Paul the apostle, gives us the answer. He says..."its therefore not I that live but Christ who lives in me." So as "I decrease, He increases". This then brings me to increasing glory, victory and success.
With the power of the cross in your life you get eyes to see these things and the supernatural strength and authority to overcome the works of the devil. You quickly see the total futility of the world's ways.
Another aspect to taking up your cross is called self-denial. Self-denial outside of the kingdom is useless. That's the same as Buddhism. Self denial with God working in your life produces wonderful healthy God-created fruit. Outside of God it's pure, worthless humanism.
Self denial is not easy. It takes guts to stand against the forces of Satan in the world. But as we do it, a miracle starts to happen. It gets easier because we start seeing with new eyes...His eyes and Bible-based eyes.
The most incredible example of this is in the powerful discourse by the apostle Paul who after many years of cross bearing says; "I count all things as dung compared to the excellence of the knowledge of Him."
This is all contrary to the way of the world and also to much modern church doctrine.
Today we're in a world of superficiality, of cheap, shallow, cross-less Christianity. We're in a world of increasing evil where the church is unable to do anything about it, because it's become compromised, neutralised and forsaken the cross of Christ. Many Christians today are not enemies of Christ, but they're enemies of the cross of Christ. They are counterfeit Christians.
Yet in the midst of this evil generation our God has raised up some who are a beacon of light in the darkness.
The measure of growth:
There's a simple yet profound way of measuring or knowing if you're growing in the grace of God. Are you moving forward with our magnificent Messiah? Here's the measure:
●Do you still love the things of the world?
●Do you desire to be free from the dictates of the flesh.
●Can you see the devil at work in the good and bad in you and the world?
●Can you see and understand the brokenness produced by the cross working in you?
●Do you desire the exchanged life that come from the cross. Your life for His?
●Do you desire above all things to move forward with our Lord and to know Him more deeply?
●Do you love the pure truth of the gospel, all of it, with a growing passion?
Rightly dividing the truth.
It's important to understand that our lives are made up of three areas. These are body, spirit and soul. Many verses of scripture relate to one area and not another. We must rightly divide and apply these. Some seem to be contradictions, but they're not. They just apply to different areas of our lives.
We can call the divisions, positional truth and temporal truth. Positional relates to our spiritual position in Christ. It's all the "in Him" and "in Christ" scriptures, while temporal relates to the area of soul or self. Positional has been done for us already at the new birth. Temporal is what we have to do now.
Many get overbalanced in one area. For example the prosperity bunch don't like the temporal truth verses. Both are needed if we are to be Biblically balanced.
Here are some of the Holy "contradictions" between temporal and positional truth revealed in the Bible:
►I've come that you may have abundant life. / If you find your life you'll lose it.
►I'm alive with Christ. / I die daily
►We are new creatures in Christ. / Hate your life in the world.
►Greater is He that is in me. / In me dwell no good thing.
►We are free in Christ. / We are bond slaves of the Lord.
►I am strong in the Lord. / Death works in me.
►God so loved the world. / Love not the world.
►I can do all things thru Christ. / You can of your own selves do nothing.
Believing and applying both positional and temporal truth to the right areas of our lives is the way to victory. It's one of the great secret, powerful keys to the Kingdom. It's what we need now in these days, more than ever.
My friends, we're about to enter a time where everything that people put their trust in will be shaken. People's lives will be wrecked. Will you be ready to offer the way to victory?
The dawn of eternity
We are now very close to the dawn of eternity. The morning star has already arisen in the darkness.
What a tragedy it will be for many as they step into eternity and realise that they've stolen their lives from God and His purpose for which they were all created!
Isaiah 43: 7 "Everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes I have made him."
Many have stolen their lives for their own purposes and many have taken and given their lives to the evil manmade traditions of churchianity.
All the divisions and denominations on this earth are a result of manmade tradition. They're man's best effort. Many churches are no different to the local sports club. All manmade sectarianism will fail. In many cases it's already failed. Many church divisions are a dying dinosaur. Many are sitting ducks waiting for Satan's false prophet to empower them, fulfil his purpose, and ultimately lead them to hell.
The Kingdom of God is above division and sectarianism. It's ONE in perfection. On top of this, surprise, surprise...it has one doctrine!
●The true church of the living God is one in Christ.
●It is Messianic in character and nature. (That means it's expression is Hebraic with a heart for the Jew and the Gentile.)
●You can't join it, you can only be it.
●It will be powerful and controversial.
●It cannot be defeated.
●It will stand against the works of the devil in the world.
●It will be small in size but big in influence.
●It will uphold and preach the full gospel...all of it!
●Because it will see the coming judgement and hell itself, it will be full of deep real love, compassion and warning.
●It will offer no hiding place for those motivated by the love of money, the flesh and things that today are totally demonic.
●It will be hated by the world system and loved by many, who have a love for truth or even an awakening of that love for truth.
John 15:18 "If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of this world the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of this world it hates you".
There are many great catastrophes and monumental disasters coming very soon. The greatest catastrophe ever will be when many step into eternity and meet the Lord face to face. Do you know that our great Messiah created every single atom and molecule in your body. He create un-creatable life. He created every star and galaxy for His and our pleasure! He created you for a specific purpose. He had a plan for your life before the foundation of the earth.
Imagine the incredible shock of seeing our Lord's plan for your life, knowing that you ignored it and went your own way! You followed the crowd. You allowed group-think and group-speak to dominate you. You were a sheep alright, but the devil's sheep. You listened to the masses you did the done thing. Your life had more good than bad in it, so you think God will smile on you!
Imagine the shock of standing before our Lord who has the keys of heaven and hell in His hands and hearing Him say; "Depart from me I never knew you."
Imagine the incredible, magnificent wonder of standing before the Lion of the tribe of Judah and hearing Him say; "Well done good and faithful servant enter into the eternal Kingdom" There is so much out there in eternity that our human minds can't even imagine it!
Imagine the shock that many pastors, teachers and leaders will get when they stand before God and He says; "all you did was perpetuate manmade religion and the traditions of men, while I gave you My word and put the author in your heart!"
The most profound prophecy ever:
This website is dedicated to prophecy, but this edition speaks more to your heart. Let me tell you though, that this is the most profound gravity-filled prophecy you will ever hear. God created you for His purpose, and with a plan for His ultimate glory. Finding it, knowing it and fulfilling it is the way to a purpose filled life and one that will have rewards lasting for eternity. You can't go back and do it again! Now, this side of eternity is your only chance, but your choice will last forever!!
Don't waste your lives. Seek our Lord's purpose and plan for your life and walk in it. Just do it!
Job15:8 "Have you heard of the secret council of God, or do you limit your wisdom to yourself."
Psalm 25:4 "Show me Your ways Lord and teach me Your paths."
Isaiah 50:4..."He awakens my ear to hear as the learned."
Heaven or hell:
Young man, you are imprisoned by the teachings of your elders. Don't think that because there are many like you that you're safe. You've been led onto a road to hell. Luckily it's not a one-way road. You can repent and turn at any time, unless of course you reach the end of the road first. God's road for you will be found by you if you want to honestly search for it.
Woman you are veiled in deception. You're in a prison just like the young man next to you. You are God's enemy. Our Lord's love has a plan for you, which will set you free indeed, with wonderful eternal consequences. The cross of Christ will clean you and free you spiritually and empower you to bring others with you to glory.
We're at the dawn of eternity! This is one my own pictures which I shot at sunrise in the desert.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace!
