|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.|

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.

●Russia warns Israel that it would be making a "big mistake" if it attacks Iran.
●The suspension of Syria from the Arab League and the international focus on Iran's nuclear program will cause both nations to take a hostile "injured" stance like a wild animal cornered.

The tragedy of a failed church.
Of course God doesn't fail and the "gates of hell will not prevail" over what He has and is building. The message to the church of Philadelphia in the Revelation of Jesus Christ is a picture of glorious success and victory, but that's only one small section of the church.
If you read God's own assessment of the church in chapters two and three of the Revelation, you be shocked!
Of course all those who are born of the Spirit of the living God in all churches are His family. He only has one body, not many. But we also need to look deeply into the scriptures and heed the many warnings of impending doom for a large part of the church.
One of the big reasons why the true church of the living God will forever be hated by the false church, and the world for that matter is because it forever stands exclusive, separate and holy unto God. It will never assimilate and merge with the multi-faith movement. There is an impassable gulf (Luke 16:26) between heaven and hell, the saved and the unsaved The cross of our Lord is the great divider.
The reason why the antichrist will be accepted with open arms is because he comes making peace, offering love acceptance, coexistence and tolerance of all religions. If all religions are equally valid, then the cross of Christ and shed blood of our Messiah was meaningless!
2 Corinthians 6:15-16 "What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever ? and what agreement has the temple of God with idols, for you are the temple of the living God."
You see, the world has elevated democracy to such a high level that the church has simply adopted it into the realm of religion as well. Because the majority thinks all religions are equally valid does not make it so. Of course we respect the people of other religions, but that's a different thing.
The great tragedy is that the world together with a great multi-faith religious movement will welcome the antichrist onto the world stage and give themselves to him. But if you think he will uphold true democratic values, have a look at these verses showing that he will quickly introduce a system of domination and control:
Isaiah 10:14 "By the strength of my hand (antichrist) I have done it, and by my wisdom for I am prudent; I have removed the boundaries of the people, and have robbed their treasuries...My hand has found like a nest the riches of the people, as one gathers eggs that are left. I have gathered all the earth; and there was no one who moved his wing, nor opened his mouth with even a peep."
Revelation 13:17 "He caused all both small and great, rich and poor, slave and free to receive a mark...and that no one may buy or sell except the one who has the mark..."
Rather than universalism, equity, democratic values and equality of all faiths, the antichrist will form a massive system of world control and domination, perhaps even worse than Marxist /Leninism. The nations of the world will be fooled by this "christ" and run to give their nations over to his control.
The multi-faith church will spearhead Satan's plan to control the world, but those who are truly born of the Spirit of God and are following Him, will see red lights flashing and separate themselves.
Yeshua / Jesus says "If you're not with Me and for Me you're against Me. (Matthew 12:30)
You cannot serve two masters. (Luke 16:13) You will love one and hate the other.
Note this very important issue in this amazing verse below. People can and will pretend to be true believers. They know all the right words and sayings, but their hearts are wrong.
Psalm 81:15 "The haters of the Lord would pretend submission to Him, but their fate would endure forever."
The Bible itself is God's handbook and instruction manual on how the church should be run.
1Corinthians 1:10 "Now I plead with brethren by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and same judgement." Verse 13 "Is Christ divided?"
Amos 3:3 "How can two walk together lest they be agreed". Disunity in the church is the largest cause of its failure.
One of the great tragedies of the failed church is that it is deaf to God's warnings!
Truth unites all those that love it, but truth in this modern day and age offends many people.
The truth is designed to offend. It offends the pride of life, so that it can be dealt with.
1 Peter 2:7-8 "The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone, a stone of stumbling and a rock of offence."
Truth shows how helpless you are in and of your own self effort. Truth illuminates Satan in the world and his host of demons. Truth shows that you need the cross of Christ. So what does the church do? It removes the offence. Galatians 5:11...The offence of the cross..."
I've said many times, it's very easy to spot the counterfeit. He has no cross, nor the marks of the cross on his daily life!
If you remove the cross and its effects on your life, you will easily fit in with the world and its traditions, religions, entertainment, and its ways. You will soon become accepted as one of them. You won't even see who's really pulling the strings in the background.
Luke 6:26 "Woe to you when all men speak well of you."
Proverbs 21:27 "The sacrifice (works) of the wicked is an abomination".
2John 1:6 "This is love, that we walk according to His commandments (truth / word)". What a staggering verse! How amazing is that? You know how many times people come up with, "that's not love". I don't know how many times I've been accused of not walking in love because I won't join my Christian friends worshipping the great Satanic god Hollywood! Well, here's one of the great definitions of what it means to walk in love! To walk in love is to walk in truth!!!!
Joshua 24:14-15 "Now therefore fear the Lord and serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods that your fathers served...Serve the Lord."
An easy way to get rid of counterfeits and troublemakers in the church is simply to preach the true gospel of offense. Preach Christ and Him crucified. Preach the need to take up your cross daily. They will quickly leave. Who is left behind is who you can really walk with on our journey.
The way of the truth is narrow...not wide all encompassing and universal. (John 14:6) The way of the modern church is all accommodating...destined for the wide open arms of the antichrist and an eternal hell.
There is only one narrow road to heaven, but millions of wide open roads to hell. (and Rome of course)
The entirety of the work of God with man starting in Eden all culminates in the cross of Calvary. It is the cross that is the great divider. It is the ongoing work and power of the cross that gives true insight, understanding and power to live a successful life God's way!
The way of God is this. Take up your cross daily and follow our Lord (Matthew 16:24)
"The message of the cross is foolishness to them that are perishing". So they remove it and become "enemies of the cross of Christ." (1 Corinthians 1:18) You can easily remove the cross, but you can't remove "the perishing" as a result!
Luke 11:35 "Beware that the light that is in you is not really darkness". Many preachers today preach Jesus in the church, but it's another Jesus! It's a jolly Santa Clause Jesus
If you set off on a very important one way once-in-a-lifetime very long journey, wouldn't you like to know that you're on the right road? Too many today are blind sheep, following their leaders in hope that he knows where he is going.
John 4:24 "Those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."
Mark 7:7 "This people honours Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. In vain they worship Me teaching as doctrines the commandments of men."
Oh Europe your eternal doom is before you!
►Here is an absolutely shocking, revolting, sickening program broadcast on BBC a few weeks ago on the state of the church in Europe, the new dark continent. (There's a video clip of some of the program on this website as well, just click play.) As I watched the full program on BBC, I could continuously almost hear the future screams from hell of the people and counterfeit ministers in the program.
This is all about atheists in the pulpit: (click the link below)
This program is shocking indeed, but it is all prophesied in the scriptures.
Here is another shocking bit of news on the state of the modern church. This link will take you to a story on the move from Christian Zionism to Christian Palestinianism.
The move away from God's plans for Israel, the Jews and Jerusalem is really speeding up. The Methodist, Presbyterian, Lutheran and many others are at the forefront.
A very easy way to get rid of all the confusion and to allow atheists in the pulpit, and to basically allow anyone to have their own democratic voice in the church is simply to say "Don't judge"
Those who say don't judge, have only one motivation and that is to allow evil and sin to flourish. Imagine saying to a judge "Don't judge." The Bible does not say "don't judge" It says "don't judge after the flesh"
(Please have a look at Edition 14 tilted "To judge or not to judge")
The truth is being cast down.
Isaiah 59:14 "...Righteousness stands afar off for truth is fallen in the street."
We are heading fast into a world of tremendous evil. The truth has been "cast down in the street" The cross is being removed more and more so that evil can flourish.
The church has failed in its responsibility to restrain evil.
Is your church teaching truth and growing in holiness and the fear of the Lord, or is it acceptable to the world?
We are to grow in the fear of the Lord and not the fear of the church fathers, reformers and the like.
Beware: Matthew 24:12 "Because lawlessness shall abound the love of many will grow cold."
Jeremiah 5:31 "The prophets prophecy falsely, and the priests rule by their own power; and My people love to have it so."
2 Corinthians 10:12 "We dare not compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they measuring themselves by themselves and comparing themselves among themselves are not wise."
Matthew 6:23 "If your (spiritual) eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is really darkness, how great is that darkness.!"
Isaiah 5:20 "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness."
The word 'contaminate' means to mix with the impure and unclean. That's the state of much of the modern church!
Deuteronomy 12:29-32 "When the Lord God cuts off from before you the nations which you go to dispossess, you shall displace them and dwell in their land, take heed to yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them...and that you do not inquire after their gods saying "How did these nations serve their gods? I also will do likewise. You shall not worship the Lord your God in that way...whatever I command you, be careful to observe it; you shall not add to it nor take away from it."
Leviticus 18:30 "Therefore you shall keep My commandments, so that you do not commit any of these abominable customs (traditions)"
Truth is not variable, it's absolute.
The old ways
The old ways are the new ways for many who've left the old ways and gone of astray. The old ways are the new ways for many who want to liven up and invigorate their spiritual lives. Isn't it amazing that here we are in 2011 talking about how radical the 2000 year-old Bible is. You see, the major issues of life don't change or get old and out of date. Life and it's principles are eternal. "The word of God is life"
Jeremiah 6:16 "Stand in the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls..."
We have an immensely important and enormous responsibility to God to the unsaved, to saved and to Israel. We dare not interfere with the truth and make it relevant to a fallen world
●The truth may hurt but lies will comfort you on your journey to hell. A classical example of this was the work of mother Theresa. Her philosophy was to comfort people of other faiths, dying in her hospice, without even attempting to convert them.
There are many churches who are led by mature men who know our Lord and His word. They are doing their job very well. They are able to see the attack of the enemy and defend themselves and their flock. They are well able to lead many people into all truth. They are becoming the minority.
It's a real blessing and privilege to know our Messiah, to follow Him and His ways. In this day that will make you a minority and a complete oddball, but it will make you a friend of the living God.
In closing you might like to (please do) watch / listen to this clip by Grace Williams tilted "Hide me now." it's a beautiful piece of music.
Psalm 118:19 "Open to me the gates of righteousness; I will g through them, and I will praise the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord, through which the righteous shall enter."
Psalm 119:1-2 "Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord! Blessed are those who keep His testimonies , who seek Him with a whole heart."
Heaven or hell:
Young woman you had better be worried if you have not accepted the finished work of the cross of Calvary. You friends may tell you that there are many ways to be saved. They may tell you that God would not send anyone to hell. They are wrong. Now while you are alive you can change your mind, not afterwards!
The way of our Lord is the way to glorious victory now and in time to come. It really is a celebration. Oddly, submitting to God is the way to real liberty and freedom.
Here's a painting by El Greco done in 1580 depicting Christ carrying His cross.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace!
