- The Kushner / Trump Deal of the Century has had its initial section released for discussion, dubbed “The Peace to Prosperity Plan.” This will be a workshop in Bahrain on June 25-26. It is aimed at raising international investment for the Palestinians. Little appetite for it so far.
- Hamas says: “No ceasefire with Israel.” Iran says: “We chose the path of resistance only.”
- Tensions in the Persian Gulf remain extremely high.
People seek affirmation and acceptance. They seek approval and assurance, looking for validation and value. But they seek it in the world and in their own selves (flesh or sin nature) and there they encounter the father of lies, telling them that they’re okay. It is the world and self that must die on the cross! So why go to those sentenced to death for their sin, for approval? (Galatians 2:20, 6:14)
People must decide on the inherent goodness of man or the inherent wickedness of the heart of man. If the latter, a saviour is needed. (Jeremiah 17:9)
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!
A most dramatic prophecy:
I really do expect many big prophetic things to break onto the world stage within days, weeks and perhaps a few months. Now is the time to be ready and stay spiritually tuned in!
Tread carefully when the warning trumpets are warming up and the warning bells are ringing. Today, I want to put before you a dramatic prophetic warning about to break onto the world scene. With so many ducks in row – wake-up time!
Today there is an explosion of interest in end-time things and the spirit of error is there to provide the deceived with more deception, and Spirit of truth is there to lead the genuinely humble into all truth.
If all these events which are happening were not recorded in the Bible, and someone recorded them now, they would look exactly like Bible prophecy! But the unsaved world simply does not have spiritual eyes and ears to see any of it, or know it. They are wandering blindly in confusion.
Have a careful look now at the following few verses, they are dramatic to say the least!
Isaiah 44:28, 45:1-3 “(The Lord) says to Cyrus, he is My shepherd, and shall perform all My pleasure, even saying to Jerusalem, you shall be built, and to the temple, ‘your foundation shall be laid.’ Thus says the Lord to His anointed, to Cyrus whose right hand I have held – to subdue nations before him and loose the armour of kings, to open before him the double doors, so that the gates will not shut...I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places...”
These few verses above, speak prophetically of: ●The status of Jerusalem. ●The beginning of the building of the third temple. ●Subduing nations, weakening or causing their submission. ●Conflict with surrounding nations, ●Keys to double-door access to Jerusalem. And ●Oil!
But there is more: “Double doors” represent strongly secured doors or access. The context here is Jerusalem. Revelation 3:7 speaks of the faithful church being given the “key of David” which opens and no one shuts.”
This “key of David” is a reference to Isaiah 22:20-22 where Eliakim becomes a political leader, with God’s favour on him. He is given the “key of David” to open to the “inhabitants of Jerusalem.”
The name “Eliakim” means “God will raise him up.”
Cyrus was a godless leader, but God used him for His purposes. Here we see both Cyrus and Eliakim being examples in type of President Trump.
Remember last time I said that the decree of Cyrus to rebuild the temple happened as the seventy-year Babylonian captivity ended. In terms of our analogy in type, that is now!
Deuteronomy 33:24 “Asher is most blessed of sons; let him be favoured by his brothers, and let him dip his foot in oil.”
The land of the Hebrew tribe of Asher is foot-shaped, right in the north of Israel bordering the coastline, which is exactly where the huge, recently discovered “Leviathan” oil and gas fields are, which are already in operation. (“Asher” means: Blessed.)
There was also a recent large oil discovery in the Negev Desert. Israel is already supplying oil and gas to Europe and other neighbours. Iran and Russia do not like this one little bit.
Some 30% (18.5 million b/d) of the world’s oil passes through The Straits of Hormuz, a chokepoint in the Persian Gulf, controlled by Iran, on its way to the west.
This single spot has the potential to cripple the world’s economy if its life-blood, oil, is stopped. Iran knows this and has threatened to close the Straits before. But now so many other things are all lining up and cornering Iran like a rabid dog.
Bear in mind that Iran has just repeated its threat to attack Israel if the US attacks it. That’s like going to your next door neighbour on the right and punching him out because your neighbour on the left got on your nerves!
Actually, it’s all about dancing, deceiving, demons and devils in Iran’s head.
It is the modern Cyrus who will get all these things going. And yes, there is enough biblical evidence to identify President Trump as that man.
Israeli leader Netanyahu has compared King Cyrus to President Trump. Numerous Bible prophecy buffs have done the same. This is all analogy, type and shadow in operation, which I agree with here.
There is a rule in applying type to a biblical situation. Never take the analogy too far. It may be only certain aspects of the biblical source that apply in type.
Most importantly it is must have the leading and revealing of the Spirit of God behind it.
Bear in mind that those outside of the leading of the Spirit, or who have their own agendas, generally see nothing in the types and often resist them.
So, let’s see what we have:
We have President Trump’s backing, and securing of Jerusalem as belonging to Israel. This applies to Golan too. We will soon have the laying of the foundation of the temple. That is still to come. We have the subduing of nations through agreement like with Saudi Arabia and war coming with others like Iran. And we have the oil issue. We have the key to Jerusalem’s double doors being kept open.
This current prophetic scenario includes: ●Iran resumption of its nuclear weapons program, which is underway again. ●Iran’s repeated hatred for Israel, and threats against her. ●Iran’s crashing economy and currency, ●Iran’s attack on four ships (so far) in the Persian Gulf and its threat to use the closure of the Straits of Hormuz as a weapon against the world economy. ●A new 10-nation military confederacy in Europe has just been put together by Macron of France. ●Syria continues to sizzle ahead of its total destruction.
The law of war is not enshrined in the courts of the UN, the World Court, the EU, the UK, the US or Israel or any other nation. It is enshrined in the word of God. “The Lord of hosts” is used hundreds of times in the Bible. “Hosts” is the word for armies – the armies of our Lord.
The purpose for prophesied war and all these end-time upheavals is to bring in true world peace, righteousness and glory!!
Beware - many of these things will be coming with sudden shock.
Edition 105. January 10th 2012
Love or truth or both!
News events and comment.
●Syrian dictator, Assad may be the next tyrant to topple. All of the Arab Spring dictators were overthrown or killed by their own people. Assad will be next if he doesn't first of all attack Israel, which he has promised to do. This would initiate the war of Isaiah 17 in which Damascus "lies a ruined heap." The other possibility is that Assad is overthrown and Syria becomes another pawn in the Arab Spring game. The Damascus war would then follow. Either way it's coming!
●Russian and French warships have now moved into positions off Syria while US drones fly over the Iranian coast.
●The US has just deployed a large number of troops into Israel for joint operations relating to oil-wars or any other conflict- escalation. A US aircraft carrier will be joining the deployment offering air and missile support in conjunction with Israel.
●We're on the brink of major prophetic developments in the Middle East!
Love or truth or both!
1 John 3:18 "...Let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and truth."
Why is this issue so important?
One of the major characteristics of the time period near the Lord's return is a huge, monumental, satanically driven attack on truth.
If you're standing on a railway line and your eyes are misty and there's a lot of noise around, how can you see or hear the train coming? Seeing and hearing and knowing the truth is so vital in the face of the coming onslaught.
If Satan can cast down, confuse or obscure the truth in your life, he has a major highway right into your heart.
If you go into the zone where nuclear radiation is all over the place, you need protective clothing. Who removed the sign saying "Protective clothing needed?" A great part of the church did. They say: "Don't worry about doctrine or truth, just love everybody right now." "All is clear in the world", they say. They're leading you to disaster in the name of love!
Today's church leaders fit into one of these categories: Stupid leaders, clever leaders or dangerous leaders.
Stupid leaders don't question things. They just accept and regurgitate what they've been taught. Like their flock, they have the pandemic called spiritual laziness. Cleaver leaders question things especially traditions. They measure everything against the word of God with the Spirit's leading. Dangerous leaders have questioned things, they know the truth, but they ignore it and go with the dictates of their people and the world's traditions.
Today many have become their own false gods. Their eyes are blinded to truth. They're wrapped up in their own deceived ideas, measuring themselves among themselves.
Today most Christians have been completely woven into the very fabric of the world and it's god Satan. They're blind to their own state.
There is only one narrow, valid way to glory and that is the way of the cross of Christ. The world and a fast growing number of churches today believe that God word is not valid and the wide road of tolerance is right. They contradict God and His word.
Proverbs 21:30 "There is no wisdom or understanding or counsel against the Lord."
Please understand that I have no interest in proving myself right and others wrong. I have no interest in towing your church line either. I'm consumed with a passion for truth and to see you well-prepared to meet our Lord of glory without regret and loss of eternal reward.
The big tree:
Love is one of the fruits of the Spirit. Fruits grow on trees, so what is the tree? The tree is obviously the Spirit. Or we could rightly say; Spirit led truth. You can't exalt a fruit above the tree itself.
If you ignore or lessen the importance of the truth-tree and exalt the fruit of love above it, here's what happens: You can then join all things together in unity.
You see, truth divides and separates, between right and wrong. Truth says 2+2=4 not 5. Take away truth in the name of love and 2+2 = anything you want.
Truth is the great divider, so if you want overall religious unity, you must get rid of truth.
You absolutely can't have love and truth if you support the Multi-Faith movement today. You can only have love, with truth cast aside.
Love without truth is humanism and is ultimately the road to hell.
If you're going to have unity based on your love, you have to equally love Buddha, Mohamed, Jesus and all others. If you have unity based on truth, you can still love the people of other religions, but you're only united with those who love Yeshua /Jesus exclusively.
2 Thessalonians 2:9-11 "The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs and lying wonders and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth that they might be saved. And for this reason God sent them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie."
2 Timothy 3:13 "Evil men and imposters will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived."
2 Timothy 4:3-4 "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers...and they will turn from the truth."
Love says: "God would not send anyone to hell, all religions are valid".
Truth says: "Unless you are born again you will not see the Kingdom of God".
Love and truth says: "You must be born again. Your growing love for our Messiah will then transform you into vessel of His love".
Love says: "God is love and therefore can't be full of wrath".
Truth says: "God is love therefore His wrath is revealed against all sin, hatred and un-holiness."
Romans 2:2 "We know that the judgement of God is according to truth..."
Romans 1:18-25 "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness."
We're entering a time of immense spiritual conflict. Most people will not see it, because it is primarily being fought in the spiritual realm. It's consequences are and will become more and more evident as we go into this monumental time.
The battle is for the minds and hearts of people, but especially true believers.
2 Peter 3:3-4 "Knowing this first; that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts and saying where is the promise of His coming...all things will continue as they have."
Isaiah 59:14 "...For truth is fallen in the street and cannot enter."
2 Timothy 3:1-7 "In the last days perilous times will come...for men will be lovers of themselves...always learning and never coming to a knowledge of the truth."
We're headed for catastrophic times. Regular readers will know that I've pointed out a few times approximately how many will die in the soon coming tribulation. Here's an even bigger shock, which you do well to take heed of: I know of a number of accounts of people who've had near death experiences or actually died and been brought back. Some of them speak of having encountered many spectacular and wonderful things. Some have remarked on the fact that only about 2% of the professing church made it! This is extra-biblical, so we don't put undue weight on it, but if it's only vaguely true...Yikes!!!!
In Matthew we have the well-known parable of the sower. Three out of four who heard the truth, turned it down! That's 75%. Of course this is a parable, but the point is that the larger majority are destined for hell.
The tragedy of our day is that billions of people are completely blind to their own state, but what is an even greater tragedy is that the church itself has largely cast aside truth in the name of love. It is being led by the nose-ring to the slaughter.
Galatians 5:7 "You ran well, who hindered you from obeying the truth."
Proverbs 1:25-26 "Because you disdained all My counsel (truth), and would have none of My reproof, I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your terror comes."
Today a great part of the church is in total darkness about what is coming, when, why and how. They're in ignorance of the state of their own hearts and completely in the dark about the spiritual war for their own eternal state. Why is this? It's the leaders that are to blame.
Hosea 4:9 "And it shall be like people like priest, so I will punish them for their ways, and reward them for their deeds."
The verse above is the terrible truth. The verse below is the exact opposite and the way of the diligent, with a heart after our Lord.
Jeremiah 4:19 "O my soul, my soul! I am pained in my very heart! My heart makes a noise to me; I cannot hold my peace, because you have heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war."
This verse is amazing. It was written thousands of years ago by Jeremiah. If ever there is a verse of scripture that grabs me personally...this is it! By the way, this verse is my heart's desire for you as well.
Of course love without truth would throw that verse out and say: "Just pray for money and be happy now."
I was chatting to a friend who I hadn't seen for some time a while ago. He's been a believer for many years. He goes to a normal ordinary spineless church. I was amazed that he didn't even know what the Arab Spring is.
The way ahead
The glorious church is the one that's moving ever forward with our Messiah in all truth and love
We need to "take heed that we're not deceived" That means we need to be vigilant. Actually the original word for "take heed" is an agricultural term. It means we need to pull out the weeds, water and nurture the plant well.
John 18:37 "...Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice."
3 John 3-4 "For I rejoiced greatly when brethren came and testified of the truth that is in you, just as you walk in the truth. I have no greater joy to hear that my children walk in the truth."
Here is the way of the word. This is the way to safety:
2 Peter 1:12 "Therefore I will not be negligent to remind you always of these things though you know them and are established in the present truth."
2 Timothy 2:15 "Be diligent to present yourselves approved unto God, a workman who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
The above verses are a true delight. They speak of continuing in the word of truth and not giving up. They speak of the very opposite of today's pandemic - spiritual laziness.
Don't take these things lightly, we're in a world of spiritual conflict and we need to be prepared to stand against the onslaught and move forward with our Lord.
The biggest error and deception that's coming, is peace created by loving people. They'll try to bring peace to the world. In fact the world's "Roadmap to peace" for Israel is a perfect example. To bring peace, they say divide up the land of Israel. God's truth says that's the way to war! (Joel 3:2)
The fast growing apostasy of the church is directly related to false doctrine and the perversion of truth.
Truth will "out" in the end...always and absolutely. Don't you think it's kind of wise to line up with it now?
Truth without Spirit-led love creates the bondage of legalism.
Love without truth makes you a humanist with a low view of God and a high elevated view of yourself.
At the end of the day it must be Spirit-led love together with Spirit-led truth that will keep you safe and moving forward with our great Messiah, King, Lord and God.
Isaiah 13:6 "Wail for the day of the Lord is at hand! It will come as destruction from the Almighty."
Here's a painting by Giovanni Francesco Barbieri depicting the apostle Matthew.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace!
