|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!
●Passover April 19-27. ●Pentecost June 8-10 ●Rosh Hashanah Sept 29th October 1st ●Atonement Oct 9. ●Tabernacles October 14-20
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.

The curse of ignorance in this day:
News events and commentary:
My comment begins with ***
●AlQaeda is again actively recruiting suicide bombers for new missions.
●Iran’s economy is on the brink of collapse! This will further corner the angry beast!
●Most Israeli born Arabs want to continue living in Jerusalem and Israel. (Jerusalem Post)
●The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt says when they come to power they will turn their attention to Israel. “Egypt’s capital will no longer be Cairo but Jerusalem.” ***What an amazing insightful statement! More and more their intentions are emerging from the smoke screen which still blinds the West! (Israel Today June 10th)
●The EU leaders are plotting a new “superstate” This will include a fiscal union with Germany in charge. (Mail Online June 6th 2012)
●The highest ranking Muslim cleric Sheik Abdul Abdullah, in Saudi Arabia again calls for all churches to be destroyed in the Middle East. He says this is the will of Mohammad. This must be done to prepare for Sharia law to be introduced in the whole of the Middle East.
The curse of ignorance in this day:
Ephesians 4:17-18 “Do not walk as the rest of the Gentiles do in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardening of their hearts.”
Very rarely have I seen one single verse of scripture that so succinctly analyses and summarises the condition of the unsaved, as in this verse above!
We’re in the early stages of some of the most dramatic times this earth has seen...all spelt out in Bible prophecy.
Ignorance in this day means that you will not be ready! You will be caught unaware of the dramas about to fall on you!
We’re in a time of rapidly escalating conflict in the unseen spiritual realm.
We’re in the time of the great battle for the hearts and souls of people and their eternal destination.
Why the profound ignorance?
If you are blind to a big hole in front of you, you just may fall into it.
If your enemy knows his time is just about up he’s going to fight a lot harder just towards he’s demise.
Satan knows full well that his days are numbered and he knows that by blinding people they will be harmless to him and he will be able to draw them easily away from the true and living God. That really is the story in a nutshell.
The tragedy though is that untold billions of people will soon be swept away to an eternal hell.
What is true ignorance and its opposite?
True Biblical ignorance locks you up and enslaves you to the ‘darkness’ that is in the world. It imprisons you to the world and its ways. True Biblical ignorance prevents you from seeing and preparing to meet our Lord.
We’re not talking about ignorance in the intellectual sense here, although some degree of literacy is important.
We’re really talking about the most important thing in life and that is ignorance of the true and living God, the way of salvation and the leading of the Spirit of God particularly through the word of God.
The three verses below really pin-point true ignorance. As you see it really has little to do with intellectualism but rather your source and fuel for your life’s journey.
You can be very clever and very worldly operating in the energy of your own flesh and self effort. This will not save you!
Romans 1:22 “Professing to be wise they became fools.”
1 Corinthians 3:19 “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.”
Jeremiah 10:23 “O Lord, I know the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man who walks to direct his own steps.”
The Godly side of things:
The Bible uses three words which are progressive.
They are: ‘knowledge’ ‘understanding’ and ‘wisdom’
Knowledge is the simple intake of Godly knowledge, while understanding is the discerning and dissemination of it and wisdom is the application of it.
Here’s the catch: You can’t learn these at school or college! These three wonderful gifts of God come primarily by opening your heart to our Lord in brokenness and humility.
And what shall we say of holiness? Yes sir...it’s required to hear from God.
Proverbs 3:32 “His secret council is with the upright.”
Of course Bible study, prayer and other factors come into the picture as well, but you can really soar and fly high with our Lord and Saviour just with a heart fully surrendered to Him. What I love about that is that it takes growth in our Messiah out of the realm of exclusivity.
Even the uneducated can be strong in the Lord if they want to.
In fact a person with a low intellectual level can fly way above the proud university graduate any day!
One of the Bible words for ordinary head-knowledge is “gnosis” But then we also have “epi-gnosis” the latter being knowledge that is above knowledge. In other words, this would be what we call revelation knowledge or God-breathed and spoken knowledge.
The following verse really describes what this revelation knowledge is:
1 Corinthians 2:7-10 “Eye has not seen nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him. But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit, for the Spirit searches all things, yes the deep things of God.”
This is what sets the true believer apart from all others...He hears God speak and knows His voice! (I’m not talking about hearing audible voices.)
How glorious, wonderful and full of life is God-breathed revelation knowledge, especially in this day of rampant evil and confusion on every front!
James 1:5-6 “If anyone lacks wisdom let him ask God...but let him ask in faith with no doubting.”
Deuteronomy chapter 28 lists the blessings and curses of obedience and disobedience to God. Here are just a few of the curses. I’ve strung them together for better insight.
Cursed shall be in the city and in the country. Cursed shall be when you come in and go out. The Lord will send on you cursing confusion and all that you set your hand to do will be destroyed. The Lord will cause you to be defeated. The Lord will strike you with confusion of heart. And it goes on and on.
The point is that ignorance of God and his ways will lead you into many curses that will come upon you and you won’t be able to shake them off. Unfortunately many people don’t know and can’t see that they’re under a curse.
Even if you manage to live a successful life outside of God...you’ve got a terrible surprise coming as you enter eternity!
James 3:17 “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits...”
What are the consequences?
Acts 17:30-31 “Truly these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness.”
Hosea 4:6 “My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge, because they rejected the knowledge (of God) I also will reject them.”
My friends, time is running out! Yes, things may continue for a while, but did you realise that your time is running out to get your life completely right with God? Did you realize that you will be rewarded for your response or lack of it to God’s calling and prompting in your life?
The big eternal consequence for the unsaved is hell, but just look at the verse above in Acts. Note that God isn’t giving the end-time world a gentle suggestion! The command is to repent because the Lion of the tribe of Judah is coming to judge the world. There’s no argument or discussion about this!
The only issue is: Are you going to repent now and be ready for what’s coming, or are you going to carry on in your worldly ignorance?
The verse in Hosea is truly frightening isn’t it?
You see, today we’re in a world of staggering ignorance among the well educated. They’ve been blinded and neutralised by the media and they’re all following like stupid blind sheep.
Ignorance of Bible prophecy is one of the main issues that Satan uses to lead people to himself.
Bible prophecy is the “eyes” of God’s people. It spells out where we’re going, what’s coming and why. It’s all for a very valuable purpose.
Bible prophecy is God’s roadmap to victory.
Satan’s roadmap is the opposite of God’s in many ways, particularly in regards to coming war and peace. God says that dividing the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem will bring war to the world. Satan’s roadmap says, divide them and that will bring peace!
Let’s ask the question: Is Obama an ignorant idiot? Obviously not! He’s highly intelligent. But he is ignorant of God truth and ways. Even if he knows about God’s word on the subject, he’s in Satan’s camp on the issue! (Of course he may change his position down the line)
Satan will soon capitalise on the world’s ignorance of Bible prophecy relating to Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews. Satan will use this mass ignorance to lead the whole world against God’s revealed will and plans.
Will you be one of the worldly-wise, filling your head with the ways of the world, inspired by God- haters and devil-evil lovers...particularly those of the media?
Ignorance of the fact that you can’t get rid of the Jews has and will lead many millions of people straight to hell! Hitler tried and failed, simply because God’s plan is superior and way above anything that man can come up with.
The terrible consequences of ignorance of God’s ways and plans are about to explode onto the world stage!
The majority, in their pride arrogance and rejection of God, will follow the liar, deceiver, fraud, and counterfeiter!
Perhaps the biggest thing lacking in the church today is a spirit of repentance and humility.
Job 37:5 “God thunders marvellously with His voice; He does great things which we cannot comprehend.”
The secular media of the world is the very voice of the god of the world!
Political correctness and human rights have superseded the living God and His word.
But it’s more than that...unfortunately much of the church has capitulated to the self same spirit and is no different to the world. In fact Satan himself as god of the world is leading and directing much of the church in the disguise of their leaders.
They’ve become acceptable to the world and the world tolerates them because they don’t rock the world’s boat!
The church today does not “thunder marvellously with God’s voice” as in the verse above. Today a lot of the church is the voice of a spineless compromised wimp!
So, is it all the fault of the spineless priests of the day? Well, no, not so. It’s just as much the fault of the people at large!
Jeremiah 5:31 “The prophets prophecy falsely and the priest rule by their own power; and My people love to have it so.”
Hosea 4:9 “And it shall be: like people, like priest.”
It’s well worth remembering that one of the marks of a false prophet, and an easy way to identify him or her is in their prophesying the wrong thing at the wrong time. The prophets of peace in times of impending world catastrophe are the false prophets of the day.
Jeremiah 6:14 “They have also healed the hurt of My people slightly, saying peace, peace, when there is no peace.”
I’m not for a moment suggesting that we can’t and shouldn’t walk in deep personal peace even in perilous times. Regular readers know full well that that's one of my main themes.
But the prophets who say that soon coming world catastrophe is not coming are the deceived false prophets and liars.
Why it’s all so important?
My friends, the fence is rising higher and higher. A great shaking is coming. Fence sitters will be shaken off onto one side or the other. Unfortunately the great majority will go with Satan.
Bible prophecy is not for our amusement or even to prove God right and the world wrong. The primary purpose of Bible prophecy is to knock you and me off our perches! It is to defeat us and leave us speechless. It is to bring us to surrender and into the loving arms of the living God...His way!
The first and foremost purpose of prophecy is to break us! It’s to break dependency on self and to break our attachment to the world system.
Only then can we see things God’s way. You see, this is the place where all argument has ceased. All doubting is gone in this glorious secret place!
Obviously this prepares us well to meet our Messiah in confidence, but it also prepares us to be Godly servants having Godly authority!
Acts 14:22 “Paul, strengthened the souls of the disciples, exhorting them to continue in the faith, and saying: “We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God.”
Knowledge of at least some aspect of Bible prophecy is not only vital in this day for your own development in our Lord, but it’s one of the most powerful tools of evangelism. More and more, people want to know what tomorrow holds for them.
I’m fully aware that most would rather go to the fortune teller or read Nostradamus or the Mayan prophecies or the like, but there are many who will respond to the truth if it were presented to them.
The most amazing and terrible thing about spiritual ignorance is that it is actually means you are wise in your own eyes and this blinds you two times over! It blinds you to God’s kingdom and also the kingdom of the devil!
John 3:3 “I say to you, unless one is born again you cannot see the kingdom of God.”
2 Thessalonians 2:10-11 “They did not receive the love of the truth that they might be saved and for this reason God will send them strong delusion that they should believe the lie.”
2 Corinthians 4:3-4 “Our gospel is hidden to them that are lost in whom the god of this world has blinded the eyes of them who believe not.”
So here we have...blinded by God and blinded by the devil!
If you could see only one of these kingdoms you would get saved in a flash!
By the way, a number of people object to the fact that I speak about hell and Satan.
If I did not I would be betraying my God and betraying you! Let me share with you an amazing fact. As you get to know the living God more and more, He gets to know you more and more and he opens up much of the spirit realm to you. You end up looking into great wonderful glory and into the kingdom of darkness.
That’s not for our amusement, but for our edification and for our warning! Sorry guys, you’ll get both here. If you don’t like that rather than send me emails, just click the little ”X” at the top of page.
See edition 54 for more on spiritual blindness, here
Discernment of Spirit is the enemy of ignorance in this day.
God has provided all that’s necessary for His church to be successful. He’s provided the five-fold ministry gifts, which include the prophet!
1 Corinthians 12:1-11 speaks of the gifts of the Spirit of God to fully equip His servants. They are needed today more than ever!
Here they are:
● The word of wisdom.
● The word of knowledge.
● Special faith.
● Discernment of spirits,
● Interpretation of tongues.
The church is incomplete with any of these missing and Satan will capitalise on the holes in the armour! You can very sure of that!
I heard one pastor arguing against some of these above mentioned gifts, saying that they’re not for today. His church is divided against others, weak and ineffective, just as he is!
Job 11:7 “Can you search out the deep things of God? Can you find the limits of the Almighty?
Psalm 139:5-6 “You have hedged me behind and before and laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me.”
Proverbs 3:13-18 “Happy is the one who finds wisdom and gains understanding, for her proceeds are better than profit of silver and fine gold...she is a tree of life to those who take hold of her and happy are all who retain her.”
Here’s the beautiful Gabriel Stone.
It’s being called the Dead Sea Scroll in Stone!
The stone found in the Dead Sea region predates the time of Christ. It contains ‘Gabriel’s vision’ which contains 87 lines of text and speaks of the coming Messiah, the Son of David and the Messiah the Son of Joseph. The Son of David relates to the return of Messiah as a military King in judgement of the world. “He will make His enemies His footstool” Son of Joseph relates to the suffering Messiah who came, died and rose again. Interestingly, both are contained in the stone.
Shalom and grow in grace!
