Amos 9:15 “I will plant them (Israel) in their land, and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord God.”
Isaiah 41:11 “Behold all those who were incensed against you (Israel) shall be ashamed and disgraced; they shall be as nothing, and those who strive with you shall perish.”

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 tree-huggers delight:
The Bible uses plants, trees, colours, animals, birds, numbers and more to describe people and nations. It is the subliminal symbols that are of great significance and meaning, especially in relation to Israel.
Did you realise that the entire course of Israel’s history is plotted in the trees? There is much more to these symbols and metaphors - for another time.
Here are some amazing messages blowing in the wind, relating to Israel.
►The Olive tree: (Romans 11)
These trees have very deep, well established roots. They are sometimes called eternal trees, because they are so hardy; they live for many thousands of years. An ancient olive tree appears to die, but then miraculously, new shoots appear out of the dead wood continuing its existence.
The olive tree produces a rich olive oil which has numerous uses, but is also a type of the Holy Spirit. Olive oil is required to keep the temple menorah flames burning. This symbolises light. Olive tree leaves are symbols of peace. Remember the dove bringing back an olive branch to the ark after the flood of judgement.
The root of the olive tree is symbolic of God Himself. The root is called, “holy.”
Biblically, there are two olive trees of importance. The natural olive tree, is symbolic of Israel, and the wild olive tree, is symbolic of the church. The wild olive branch was “grafted” into the natural olive tree, thus partaking of the goodness of the root.
The national emblem of Israel includes two olive branches.
An ancient olive tree grove:
►The Fig tree:
The fig tree is symbolic of spiritual fruitfulness after severe pruning or judgement. It relates to Israel in the tribulation period, awakening to spiritual life.
The fig tree is unique in that its blossoms appear before the leaves. It should have fruit appearing before the leaves. This is why our Lord cursed the unfruitful fig tree, causing it to die. The root was not destroyed though, and a new tree full of fruit, is about to appear.
When the disciples asked out Lord what would be the sign of His coming, He listed a number of judgements to fall on the world. But one of these was the sign of the fig tree.
Matthew 24:32-34 “learn the parable of the fig tree: When is branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that the summer is near. So also you when you see all these things, know that it is near, even at the very doors. Assuredly, I say to you, ‘this generation (of Jews) will be no means pass away till all these things are fulfilled.’”
Present day Zionism and the awakening of the Jews, as well as modern anti-Semitism are signs of the fig tree putting forth leaves and about to produce much spiritual fruit.
►The Almond tree:
The almond is the first tree to flower in its season, which at the end of winter. The flower has five petals to it, five being the number of grace. The temple menorah, a symbol of light, has oil cups or containers in the shape of almond flowers.
The Hebrew word for “almond” is “shakeid” which also means to “awake” and “watch”.
The almond is symbolic of Messiah’s resurrection. It speaks of the supernatural power of God as seen in Aaron’s almond branch that budded in one day. (Numbers 17:8)
Jeremiah 1:11-14 “The word of the Lord came to me saying, ‘Jeremiah, what do you see?’ I said, ‘I see the branch of an almond tree.’ Then the Lord said, ‘you have seen well for I am about to perform My word.’ And the word of the Lord came to me a second time, saying, ‘what do you see? And I said, a boiling pot and it is facing away from the north.’ Then the Lord said to me: ‘Out of the north calamity shall break forth on all the inhabitants of the land.’”
The message here is that as the almond (Israel) flowers and buds she will be plunged into the tribulation period.
Jeremiah 31:28 “It shall come to pass that as I have watched over them to pluck up, to break down, to throw down, to destroy and to afflict them, so I will watch over them to build and plant says the Lord. In those days they shall say no more, ‘The fathers have eaten sour grapes...’”
Psalm 80:8-9 “You have brought a vine out of Egypt, You have cast out the nations and planted it. You prepared room for it, and caused it to take deep root and it filled the land.”
This vine, Israel, is described as “the choicest vine.” But it is a vine that also has within it a “winepress.” (Isaiah 5:1-2) The “winepress” speaks of the crushing tribulation to come!
God planted Israel as a “noble vine” of the highest quality, yet it became an alien, degenerate vine. This speaks of Israel's rebellion to Messiah. (Jeremiah 2:21)
As with the olive and the fig tree, the vine will bear its good fruit in its time, which is just around the corner!
►Other trees symbolic of Israel:
Joel 1:12 (Context: Israel is invaded in the tribulation period) “The vine has dried up and the fig tree has withered; and the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the apple tree. All the trees of the field have withered. Surely joy has withered away from the sons of men.
But we know that Israel's story does not end in the tribulation. Joy will return.
The Cedar: Symbol of power, royalty and majesty. The Oak: Symbol of strength and stability. The Palm: Symbol of military victory and victory in Messiah. The Pomegranate: Symbol of abundance and joyfulness. The Acacia: Symbol of beauty. The Myrtle: Symbol of God’s favour and blessing.
The grand summary:
Israel is: Deeply rooted in God with an eternal future. Israel contains the light-producing oil of the Spirit of God and soon will be Messiah’s light of the world! Israel will be at peace soon. The church is a “wild” family member of Israel through our joint root in God. Israel will become fully fruitful after pruning. Israel’s ripening fruit is a sign of Messiah’s coming. Israel will bud and come to life supernaturally in a day and then bring the light of salvation to the Gentile world. Israel will go through the winepress of tribulation, be attacked from the north and fall under calamity, because she was the choicest, noble vine and yet gave herself to paganism. (Baal) Finally Israel will fulfil God’s call and plan in power, majesty and strength, abundance, and blessing.
All of this is revealed in the nature of this forest of trees, and the corresponding Bible verses. How can you not be a tree-hugger!
Edition 81. June 20th 2011
Christian mass murderers.
●The media has coined the term for the uprisings in the Middle East: "The Arab spring" They are quite right! It's just the start of the popular uprising. But what will follow is the problem. Yes they will get a new political dispensation as their dictator-leaders are overthrown. But the following summer will immediately turn into a nightmare winter!
●The spiritual forces at work in the background will cause Middle Eastern Arab countries to unite in some way and form a new large, hostile conglomeration of anti-Israel Arab nations. This will happen soon. It's not a matter of if but when!
●At the same time we are on the verge of seeing the breakup of Europe. The PIIGS (Portugal, Italy, Ireland and Spain) are on the verge of default. This will cause an economic tsunami to hit the entire banking world of Europe, which will then knock on to banks worldwide. Europe may break up as a result. If it does so, you can be pretty sure that a new smaller, more powerful Europe will be formed. This will most probably fit the prophetic bill exactly.
●Awaiting a leader: The uprisings in the Middle East has been to bring down their dictator leaders. It's almost as if they're all awaiting one new leader. Europe is in a similar position. It is starting to implode. Again it's almost as if Europe is awaiting one strong leader. Both the Middle East and Europe may just get a new leadership soon...the antichrist!
●The US is also in huge financial trouble. It's stronger than Europe, but will not escape the domino effect of another financial crisis, led by a collapse in the European banking system. Many of their banks have already been downgraded by ratings agencies as they become more stressed.
●The emerging market economies have been doing very well, but they are all just slowing down right now and won't escape the problems of the developed economies.
●At this point in time we are heading for another world economic meltdown and financial crisis. This may be the situation that will lead to a new world currency and global economic control system which is prophesied in the Bible.
●We need to watch for two main big things on the prophetic scenario. The Middle East uprisings are not of importance until Israel is dragged into the fray. Then it all becomes of major prophetic importance. The other nations to watch are China and Russia. Both of these nations are key participants in the great war of Gog and Magog in Ezekiel 38 and 39.
●A few days ago Iran's Ahmadinejad joined Chinese and Russian leaders for a rare joint summit.
●According to the Debka File: "Hamas has stock piled 10,000 missiles" recently.
Christian mass murderers
This edition is going to make a lot of people angry. If your blood boils at me, please forgive. It's not my intension to make anyone mad. If the truth offends you then so be it. I challenge anyone to refute one word of these facts.
Yes I know this is all shocking, but the reason is prophetic. It's all coming again!.
John 8:44 "You are of your father the devil...he was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him..."
●Please keep the above verse in mind as you read on.
This is one of the most profound verses of scripture in the Bible. It reveals the source of murder and the reason for it.
This verse reveals that Satan is the source of murder from the "beginning." and the reason for his murder, which is because "There is no truth in him." He hates the truth. This is why he has inspired people to murder the truth itself and those who are of the truth, throughout history.
Romans 2:2 "The judgement of God is according to truth."
In this edition we're going to be talking about:
►Murder of truth,
►Murder of the soul or mind.
Truth is Satan's enemy. It always has been and always will be. Truth reveals God's ultimate glorious victory and Satan's ultimate defeat and eternal doom.
Satan has always worked to destroy the truth because he knows The Truth will destroy him at the appointed time.
Truth in a man or a group like the church is equally Satan's enemy.
Satan has always tried to stamp out the truth. He started this way back in Eden with a great deceptive lie. Genesis 3:4 "You will not surely die" He succeeded in bringing in his lie against the truth of God who had said "you will surely die." (if you eat of the tree)
He tried to destroy God's truth working in the children of Israel many times. He tried to destroy The Truth Himself, our Messiah, by killing all the boys under 2 years old. He tried to destroy The Truth by crucifying the Lord of truth. All of these backfired on Satan.
Then God miraculously birthed the true church, also called the Body of Christ. For the first 300 years or so this church was Messianic in character. It was partly Jew and partly Gentile, but with a distinct Hebraic flavour. It practised the Feasts, Sabbath (Saturday) and had no pagan influences. It was full of supernatural power.
Satan tried through a succession of 10 evil Roman Emperors to stamp out the church. The early church was a bastion of the truth. Satan hated it. It's unknown how many were savagely and brutally murdered, by the Romans, but it was a great deal.
Satan was unable to defeat the truth being carried in the early church.
Then he came up with his master plan, which was to introduce error, paganism and devil worship. From around 300 ad onwards, the truth was murdered by Constantine and others. The truth was watered down and mixed with paganism and devil worship. Easter, Christmas, the replacing of the Saturday Sabbath with Sunday and many other practises all rooted in Babylonian and Egyptian devil worship were introduced into the church to make it more agreeable to the masses.
Another reason for the introduction of Babylonian paganism into the church was to keep the Jews out. Satan knew that the Jews went into Babylonian captivity before and they wouldn't want that again. Satan also knows that the Second Coming revolves around the salvation of the Jews en mass. So if he can change the entire character of the church and fill it with Babylonian paganism, he can keep the Jews out and delay them coming to salvation, delaying the Second Coming and his own eternal judgement.
Those who opposed this new pagan-identified church were murdered.
This began the dark ages. By 600ad the Roman Catholic church had been born and the era of mass murder by the Popes began. The Popes became tools in the hands of Satan. They re-created the church, enforcing this new pagan-style flavour. The pure Messianic, Hebraic truth was removed, and replaced. This began the bloodiest period in world history. It's not known exactly how many people the Popes murdered, but it's easily in the millions.
The Roman church in the dark ages murdered more people than Hitler did.
The murdering reformers:
The image below represents pope, Calvin and Luther.
The reformation was incomplete. It brought back some long lost truths, but it perpetuated the murder of the truth introduced by the Catholics. Easter, Christmas, infant sprinkling and a host of other traditions of Babylon were simply carried over from the dark ages to the reformation period.
Glimmers of truth shone in the darkness, which God most certainly used, but the truth at large was not brought back. In fact some of the so-called great reformers were mass murderers. Again they hated the truth and murdered people that came against them. All of the reformers were anti-Semitic.
Calvin and Luther were examples of this. Today Christianity is riddled with Calvinism and it's off-shoot, reformed theology. Little do they know that their founding hero, John Calvin was a mass murderer...one who loved torture.
John Calvin had 58 people murdered who came against him. One of them, Michael Servetus was tortured to death at Calvin's command. Some believe that he had many more murdered.
The following link is titled "The Anti-Semitism of the church fathers" It's a shocking chronology of church hatred for the Jews throughout the ages. It's no wonder Jews will spit before walking into a church.
From the above website, here is terrible quote from John Calvin. It could just as well have been made by Hitler.
►"Their (Jews) rotten and unbending stiffneckedness deserves that they be oppressed unendingly and without measure or end and that they die in their misery without the pity of anyone."
Martin Luther produced a series of documents that prefigured the Holocaust almost exactly. Hitler loved Luther and often quoted from him.
Luther proclaimed of the Jews:
They should be considered “Christ killers” and should be mistreated accordingly.
“A miserable and accursed people. They are a great vermin of humanity”
In his published tracts on the Jews Luther stated:
"Their synagogues and schools should be burned and not a cinder of them should remain."
"Their houses should be destroyed."
"Their Talmudic writings should be confiscated."
"Their Rabbis should be forbidden to teach."
"Their money should be taken from them."
"They should be compelled into forced labour."
Hitler hero worshipped Luther, referring to him in his book Mein Kampf as the "great warrior".
Keep in mind that Hitler was a professed Christian. In 1924 at a Christian gathering in Berlin, Hitler spoke to thousands and received a standing ovation when he made the following proclamation: “I believe that today I am acting in accordance with the will of Almighty God as I announce the most important work that Christians could undertake - and that is to be against the Jews and get rid of them once and for all.” Hitler then proceeded to talk about the influence of Luther on his life: “Martin Luther has been the greatest encouragement of my life. Luther was a great man. He was a giant"
Today Lutheran churches are proponents of replacement theology.
The Holocaust was the product of 1,900 years of virulent Christian anti-Semitism.
You can find much more on the subject here:
The coming pope:
The final pope will either be the false prophet or be aligned closely with him. He will be a mass murderer of those who oppose him in the tribulation period.
The hatred of the Jews by Rome through the dark ages was carried on through the reformation period culminating in the Holocaust. It is still perpetuated today by many thousands of churches who propagate the false doctrine called replacement theology. This essentially replaces the Jews, Israel and Jerusalem with the Christians and the church.
Replacement theology led to replacement reality (the Holocaust) and will again in the near future!
The truth is that the Jews will again return to the Lord in our day, paving the way for the Second Coming. Satan hates this truth and will oppose it with a soon coming new Holocaust. The many Christians who've become Messianic and stand with the Jews will also be persecuted.
Satan will continue to murder the truth and those who hold to it.
Now as we come to the present time, thankfully we see many with an insatiable love for our Lord and the truth...all of it. We're now seeing just the start of the "great restoration" as many churches cast off the Babylonian / Rome-based paganism and traditions, replacing them with those rooted in Biblical truth. This is the new, exciting work of God in this day. This is the truth and it will endure.
But there are many who are possessed by pagan-traditionalism and will continue to hate and resist this wonderful new work of God in our day.
Spiritual mass murder:
Today the murder has become more subtle. It's shifted to spiritual murder.
Let me explain: If you change the truth and say things like there is no hell and no eternal judgement or you dethrone the importance of the cross and shed blood of Christ, or if you dethrone the veracity of the Bible, you are murdering the truth. Why do you need to be born again if there is no hell and all people will be saved anyway?
The emergent church movement:
The modern emergent church movement is the most evil, hate-filled group of spiritual murderers around today. They are responsible for the mass spiritual murder of untold millions. Under the leadership of Satan they've removed the Biblical doctrine of eternal judgement, eternal hell and have ridiculed and downplayed the cross. They deny the absolute veracity of the scriptures.
They believe that God will not send anyone to hell. they believe there is no hell. They believe that people of other religions are equally saved. They reject the substitutionary work of the cross. In fact they recently proclaimed that their churches should remove all crosses.
The emergent church movement is a return to darkness in the name of postmodernism.
It is NOT love to remove God's warning signs. False doctrine is never loving or helpful. It's a slippery slope to much greater problems.
Some of the leaders include Rob Bell. Rick Warren, Brian McLaren, Tony Campolo, Richard Foster and many more. In fact this movement is represented in many churches throughout the world. It is growing fast and is very attractive to modern liberal, humanist thinking. Romans 1:22 "Professing to be wise they became fools."
They believe that all religions are legitimate. Salvation for them simply means joining their way of thinking. They've murdered the truth and in so doing spiritually murdered untold millions, who now come under their spell of misguided theology and believing.
Those of the evil, humanistic, Satanic, emergent church movement are big on John 3:16, but reject John 3:17-21!
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." That all sounds just great, but let's read on:
John 3:17-21 "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn it, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; BUT he who does not believe is already condemned because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has gone into the world and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practising evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed."
Some take verse 17 out of its context. They say that "God did not send His Son into the world to condemn it". That's where they stop. But here's the truth: God didn't send His Son into the world to condemn it at the first coming, simply because the world is already condemned from way back at the fall of Adam. The first coming was for salvation. At the Second Coming, He completes the full condemnation and judgement on the world. You can't take verse 17 out of the overall context.
So in full context, John 3:16 does not teach universal love and salvation. It teaches just the opposite! It teaches that God loved the world enough to offer the way of salvation. But, if you don't believe it and receive it you are condemned to hell already.
THOSE IN THE EMERGENT CHURCH MOVEMENT WILL ACCEPT ANYTHING AND ANYONE, EXCEPT THOSE THAT PROCLAIM THE TRUTH. THESE THEY REJECT. Later on when fully empowered by Satan, as part of the greater false prophet, they will become mass murderers of those that hold to old school truth.
It's all coming again:
As we head into the period called the "wrath of God" the Bible spells out a prophetic horror that will soon play out.
It begins with the words of our Messiah when asked by the disciples about the signs of the end of the age. amongst the signs is this shocking statement Matthew 24: 9 "Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you and you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake. And then many will be offended and will betray one another and will hate one another." This verse speaks of believers betraying one another even unto death.
Then further into the tribulation, we see the shocking verse in Revelation 20:4 "And I saw thrones and they that sat on them and judgement was committed to them. And I saw the souls of them that had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God..."
Here we see that many will be martyred, murdered and killed during the tribulation because they held to Jesus and the word of God.
►Here right at the end of the age we see the same thing that we've seen right through time. we see Satan murdering truth and those that hold to the truth.
I do not believe that we will be here in the tribulation. The believers being spoken of here are those who get saved during the tribulation.
So whichever way you cut it, the same old devil will continue to hate the truth and kill those who hold to it, right to the end.
Truth stands supreme. it always will. it will endure forever. But stupid people motivated and driven by Satan himself have always tried to resist and come against the eternal truth of our glorious Messiah.
It's the truth that Satan hates and kills. As far as the true church goes, which is Messianic in character, we've seen how he tried to physically kill the early church. We've seen how he then succeeded in killing true doctrine creating the dark ages. We've seen how the reformation failed and produced sectarianism and error on a large scale as well as the murder of those that opposed them, just like their predecessors the Catholics.
Now we're in the end time era of the great final restoration. We're in the era of the formation of the true end-time Messianic church. But here's the amazing thing...The new Messianic movement is not new at all! It's a "great restoration" of the early church prior to the influence of Rome.
►The Messianic movement is simply a return to the early church, the way it was before Constantine and the Popes came along.
Again let me quickly identify what the Messianic movement is: It's the Abrahamic expression of faith, which is to the Jew and Gentile. It is Hebraic in character. It rejects the pagan flavour of the church.
It's no surprise then that this Messianic movement will be the subject of mass murder again. As the Messianic movement becomes bigger and stronger it will reject the devil's Babylonian captivity of the church. Satan won't take that sitting down!
Satan gets into and defeats the Christian in the areas of the world system, the flesh or soul life and the demonic. These areas can only be dealt with by the ongoing application of the cross. Christians who are not applying the cross into their lives can't even see these things and are open to be used by Satan.
What makes a true disciple of our Lord?
The following verses make it very clear what or who a true disciple is. These verses also spell out what it means to love our Lord. Today many so-called disciples or leaders claim to love the Lord, but they've changed and removed large parts of the truth.
Matthew 28:19-20 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit., teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you..."
John 14:15 "If you love Me keep My commandments".
John 14:21 "He who has My commandments and keeps them is he who loves Me and will be loved by My Father and I will love him and manifest Myself to him".
John 14:21 "If anyone loves Me he will keep My word and My Father will love him, and We will come and make Our home with him."
The final end time assault on truth and those who keep it will be led by the false prophet and antichrist. The false prophet will be an individual, but he will represent an entire religious movement. The word antichrist means to come against and replace. So the spirit of antichrist at work today in so many Christian leaders, first of all comes against the truth. They say things like "we need to be relevant to today" Please remember that it was Satan in the garden who said "Has God said" Once the these deceived leaders get people to question the truth and come against it, they replace it with a deadly lie.
This is the work of the false prophet and antichrist: It's to come against the truth and then replace it. The tragedy though is that the antichrist, when fully manifest will replace Yeshua / Jesus with himself and many will fall for it.
These emergent truth leaders and those proclaiming replacement theology can't see the truth, because they are not of the truth. they are of their father the devil and his works murderous works they will do.
John 8:43-44 " Why do you not understand Me? Because you are not able to listen to My word. You are of your father the devil and his desires you will do."
John 14:16-17 "...He will give you another Helper, and He will abide with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him."
Note that the Holy Spirit is called the Spirit of truth in the above verse and note that the world cannot receive or even see Him.
3 John 4 "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in the truth."
John 3:3 "Unless you are born again you cannot see the Kingdom of God".
John 16:13 "When He the Spirit of truth has come, He will lead you into all truth"
Yeshua / Jesus the example:
It's very important to look to our Lord Himself for the example in dealing with dangerous error. Please read edition 14 for more on the subject of judgement and should we or shouldn't we judge. It will surprise you!
Our Lord acted with very severe judgement on all those who polluted the truth. The book of acts is full of the same thing. He was very loving and forgiving towards those caught in sin, bringing them to repentance, but He only had severe condemning words of judgement on those who interfered with truth.
The big, main, universal character of the era we're in now could be described as; the era of variable values, where there are no absolutes anymore.
The world is charging headlong into the wrath of God and judgement. In fact the soon coming tribulation period is called the "wrath of God", the "wrath of Satan" and the "wrath of man." All three "wraths" run side by side. "God is not mocked" says the Bible. His truth will endure and triumph. How stupid it is to come against it.
Today there is a very big need for true believers to embrace, apply and hold to the truth. It is being polluted, cast down despised and destroyed all around us. Unfortunately those who are so stupid as to do that will be destroyed by the Truth.
There is only one way to deep peace and inner joy and that is to receive, embrace and practice the truth. The world today is characterised by stress, depression, and the very opposite of peace. The world will never find or know peace. Many Christians will also never know it because they're in love with themselves and the world.
The tragic truth revealed prophetically is that Satan will again use his disciples to murder millions who hold to the truth, but the truth will never ever be defeated or put down.
Psalm 119:165 "Great peace have they that love the word (truth) and nothing causes them to stumble."
John 16:33 "These things I have to you that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer for I have overcome the world."
Proverbs 28:4 "Those who forsake the word (truth) will praise the wicked."
Heaven or hell:
Sir, you will be bound by the "spirit of heaviness" outside of God's way and word. And then when you are brought before our Lord in judgement, your eternal regret and suffering will just be starting. Because many don't believe in hell, that's not going to make it go away!! Don't be so foolish as to gamble eternity on the rubbish being proclaimed in the emergent church movement!!
Those who've surrendered and bowed their entire lives to our Messiah and His word have a heart full of joy. They've entered true rest. One day not too long from now they will all leap for joy in a most spectacular way as they're summoned into great eternal glory by our King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Here's a painting by Michael Tursosky representing the suffering of the Holocaust.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace!
