|This website comprises the Abrahamic Expression of faith, which goes to the Jew and the Gentile, with a Messianic slant. I affirm the fullness of biblical truth, embracing the cross of Calvary. I reject Babylonian paganism in the church and the legalistic excesses of the Messianic Movement. This ministry has a distinct kingdom vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for the Jewish people. My position is pre-trib! Personally: I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My interest in Bible prophecy was instant. My calling came soon afterwards. It is to share this great drama, to stand watching and to glorify my God.|

●Gaza is again erupting in conflict with Israel. More than 370 rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel. Most were intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome defence system, but some got through. The IDF has just hit 150 terror targets in Gaza. A ceasefire of sorts has just been reached, but generally don't last!
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.

►Exciting new things coming to the website!
●How Christians lose credibility with Israelis. When Israel is forced into military action such as Operation “Pillar of Cloud” in Gaza, most churches are always quick to respond negatively.
For Israelis, outlandish condemnations by mainstream Church leaders send a clear message that Christians are opposed to the Jewish state. There is no differentiation between Catholics and Protestants; from an Israeli point of view they are speaking for all Christians.
Many Israelis are unaware of the worldwide support for Israel among born-again Christians who stand on God’s Word and promises to the Jewish people. Negative statements against Israel by senior clergy are reminiscent of Church history and cause all Christians to lose credibility in the eyes of the Jews. And once lost, such credibility is difficult to win back (Israel Today)
●The Simon Wiesenthal Centre released its annual list of the world’s worst anti-Semites. Top of the list is the Muslim Brotherhood’s supreme guide Mohamed Badei, and second goes to Iran’s Ahmadinejad. ***Isn’t it interesting that the stupid media of the world still thinks the Muslim Brotherhood is a peace-loving organisation because it said so!
●Syria’s death toll now over 60,000.
●Israel is preparing hospitals for chemical weapons victims.
●Gaza will again be in conflict with Israel – soon!
●Last time I shared a map from a British school text book in which Israel had been replaced. The publisher has now apologised. ***Good for him.
●Washington is to appoint Chuck Hagel as new secretary of defence. He is no friend of Israel, pro-Hamas and opposes sanctions on Iran.
A prophetic word of importance: This website is truly Messianic. The true Messianic call is to the children of Abraham, the Jewish believer, the Gentile believer including the Arab believer, all to be reconciled in faith in our great Lord, King and Saviour. My friends, we have seen very much in terms of the reconciliation of Jews and Gentiles, but the Arabs have largely been left out. I see now with a prophetic eye a new move of God in which the Arab people will begin to find Messiah in much greater numbers. Their eyes are about to open. It most certainly won’t be all but a large number. Let me also make a clear distinction between Muslims and Arabs. Not one single Muslim will ever be saved and can’t be. Islam (Muslims) is the religion and not the people. To say a Muslim will be saved is the same as saying witchcraft will be saved. The Arabs who will be saved will drop Islam.
Amazing messages in colour and number!
Firstly, do not go overboard with these things. These messages apply to Bible issues and should not be taken further.
As you read the verse below please note how well it applies to the satanic pagan practise of Christmas. As you know, pagan Baal worship is behind Christmas. As you know. According Jeremiah 10, the gold and silver balls decorating the Christmas tree originate in the worship of sun and moon gods. Molech was the god to whom the people would sacrifice their children by fire. This corresponds to Santa coming down the chimney and the children being indoctrinated with satanic Santa. Of course you know that St. Nick is an old English term for Satan. (Look it up) This verse closes with “foreign apparel”
Zephaniah 1:4-8 “I will cut off every trace of Baal from this place, the names of the idolatrous priests with the pagan priests, those who worship the hosts of heaven (sun and moon gods) on the housetops and those who swear oaths by Milcom (Molech), and those who have turned back from following the Lord and have not sought the Lord nor enquired of Him. Be silent in the presence of God; for the Day of the Lord is at hand, and it shall be in the day of the Lord’s sacrifice that I will punish the princes, the kings children and all such as are clothed with foreign apparel.
What is the “foreign apparel”? Well, it doesn’t mean clothing bought in China! It is apparel and clothing items foreign to those ordained by God for the children of Israel. Let’s have a look at some verses:
Numbers 15:38-39 “Speak to the children of Israel and tell them to make tassels on the corners of their garments, throughout their generations and to put a blue thread in the corners, and you shall do this so that you will remember all the commandments of the Lord when you look at the blue tassels.
Exodus 28:36 “You shall make a plate of pure gold and engrave on it “HOLINESS TO THE LORD” and you shall put it on a blue cord on the front of the turban.”
Exodus 39:21 “And they bound the breastplate by means of its rings to the ephod with blue cord.”
Rev 9:17 “I saw horses in the vision, those who sat on them had breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue and sulphur yellow.”
Exodus 28:31-33 “You shall make the robe of the ephod all blue.”
Exodus 26:4 “You shall make loops of blue yarn on the edge of the curtain.” (For the Tabernacle)
Numbers 4:7 “On the table of showbread, they shall spread a blue cloth...” Verse 11 “Over the golden altar they shall spread a blue cloth.”
Ezekiel 1:26 “Above the firmament was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like a blue sapphire stone...”
In these verses above notice how the colour blue is linked to so many things.
Blue symbolises priestly robes and garments, the Tabernacle, the Temple, heaven, the children of Israel and curtains and table cloths of the holy things of God.
Blue is associated in other verses with divinity, God’s people, royalty, and God’s purposes, healing and holiness.
In the secular world blue is associated with the sky, the sea, calmness, and the flag of Israel, the emblem of Israel and much more.
This Biblical colour blue comes from a dye found in a very rare mollusc or snail. It appears naturally every seventy years then just disappears. It has recently appeared again. The prayer shawl or ‘tallit’ and the ‘tzitzit’ or the blue-dyed fringes, are important. These are symbolic of God’s purity and holiness. In fact the word ‘tallit’ comes from two words meaning “small tent” So, when the tallit is worn, it symbolises being encapsulated by God.
This beautiful blue therefore relates to so many things all of a positive nature.
Do you know that when Moses went up the mount to receive the Ten Commandments he saw God standing on a sapphire blue paving?
These associations do not mean that Israel is perfect or without flaws. It means that God’s choice in it all will turn out to be right, good and perfect at the end of the day.
This deep beautiful Godly blue is the opposite and antithesis of all that is of Satan and his colour – red.
Red / scarlet.
In witchcraft circles the high priests are always clothed with red or items of red. One of Satan’s high priests that many Christians know well and serve, is name, Santa. And what colour is he associated with?
Now let’s look at the colour red.
Revelation 17:3-6 “I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast, which was full of names of blasphemy ...On her forehead was written MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunk on the blood of the saints.”
Psalm 75:8 “In the hand of the Lord there is a cup and the wine is red and fully mixed. He pours it out; surely all the wicked of the earth shall drink down its dregs.”
Revelation 12:3 “Another sign appeared in heaven; behold a great fiery red dragon...”
Isaiah 1:18 “Come now let us reason together says the Lord, though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow, though they are red like crimson.”
Revelation 14:20 “The winepress (red) was trampled outside the city and blood came out of the winepress up to the horses bridles...”
Revelation 6: 4 “And another, a fiery red horse went out and it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth and that people should kill one another...”
The verses above associate the colour red with the religion of Babylon which is today manifest largely in the orthodox churches, primarily the Catholics.
Red is associated here with the murder of the saints, the red dragon which is Satan himself and all sin. Red is associated with the wrath of God.
Red is also associated with, hell, demons, war, wrath, sin, evil, rage. Red is associated with God’s enemies and the unsaved. Red is associated with harlotry and whoredom in the Bible.
In secular terms red is associated with prostitution, harlotry, whoredom, flesh, blood, communism, domination and control.
Red is associated with Christmas and its god Satan / Santa.
Here is the official emblem of Israel with the traditional blue yamulka and the traditional Papal emblem of the Vatican and the traditional red skull cap:
This is little-known and goes unnoticed, but there is a big movement within celebrities worldwide to wear a red string at certain times on their wrist.
The red string is a satanic symbol of power and domination. Again if you don’t believe me look it up. So you think celebrities are to be looked up to!
Numbers in the Bible have important meanings associated with them. Here is a basic look at the first few.
1= unity. 2=division. 3= trinity. 4= the world. 5= grace. 6= man under sin. 7= spiritual perfection. 8=resurrection. 9 = finality. 10= divine order. 11= disorder. 12= governmental perfection.
Wouldn’t it be interesting if the “good” numbers had an association with blue?
Blue is associated with the divine numbers 5, 7, 8 as we will see.
The number 666:
Six is the number of man under sin. When it is used as 66 or 666 it adds gravity to the whole situation.
We all know the number 666 is Satan’s number or the number of the “Beast,” in the Revelation, but let’s dig a little. It's also interesting to note that six is one short of seven, This relates to Satan's attempt to be as close to God as a possible.
Revelation 13:17-18 “No one may buy or sell except the one who has the mark or the number of the beast or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who understands calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is 666.”
This gives us a deadly serious warning with eternal consequences against receiving the “mark of the beast or his number.”
Revelation 14:8-9 “Another angel followed, saying Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city because she has made all nations drink of the wine (red) of the wrath of her fornication. A third angel followed saying, “If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on his forehead or hand, he himself shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God...” Here we see an association with Babylon, its religion, 666, the mark of the beast.
Revelation 17:2 She is referred to as “Mystery Babylon. The Great whore”. This is a universally agreed reference to false religion.
There is absolutely no doubt that “666” is directly linked with religious Babylon, which today is the orthodox churches, with the Catholic church being the main one.
Do you know that the Bible instructs people to “come out of her”?
The conclusion is that Satan himself is behind the whole system of religious Babylon. The number 666 is stamped all over it and the colour red drips over it like blood!
The number 66!
The UN Palestinian bid for statehood last year was the 66th session of the UN. (This was the failed bid). The UN granted Israel official statehood in 1948, much to the disgust of the Palestinians. They call it the “great catastrophe.”
Immediately after the 1948 declaration of Israeli statehood, Syria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and a few others Arab nations attacked Israel. Israel did not even have an official army then, yet God led her to a miraculous victory.
The war ended with an armistice agreement in which Jerusalem was divided, with Jordan controlling the east and Egypt controlling Gaza and the West Bank.
It will be 66 years from the Israeli War of Independence in 1948 until 2014.
Now here we are 65 years later and we have Syria, Egypt, Jordan, Gaza, the West Bank all in play again. The dividing of state of Israel and the city of Jerusalem is on the stage again.
A new statehood bid is coming up next year. 2014 will be 66 years since independence! Has the UN suddenly forgotten that they gave statehood to Israel? 66 years ago? How the times have changed! Or have they! Joel 3:2 is ringing in my head!
Don’t you think it’s very interesting that all these things are on the stage together? In fact so many other things are all dovetailing together as well!
How much longer can things go on to keep to the Biblical “generation” in which these things must be fulfilled?
Here are a few verses tied to 666 and 66:
Psalm 66:6 “He turned the sea into dry land. They went through on foot. There we will rejoice in Him. Verse 12 “You have caused men to ride over our heads; we went through the fire and through water; but you brought us out to rich fulfilment.”
Isaiah 66: 5-8 “Hear the word of the Lord, you who tremble at His word; your brethren who hated you, who cast you out for My Name's sake. Let the Lord be glorified, that we may see your joy, but they shall be ashamed...Who has heard such a thing, shall a nation be born at once (lit=day)” That was independence nearly 66 years ago.
Can you see the tie up with 66? In Psalm 66 it’s about the miraculous deliverance of Israel from the Egyptians. (Remember that Egypt is often a type of the world) In Isaiah 66 it’s about Israel struggle finally to be given independence in a day! Now nearly 66 years later the parallels are too much to be coincidence!
Here is another tragic verse: John 6:66 "From that time on, many of His disciples turned back and followed Him no more."
The number of blue:
Our Messiah wore a prayer shawl at times. This would have been exactly as designed in the Old Testament. It would have had blue in it and blue tassels. So we have a connection between the number 888, blue and our Messiah.
The “blue” number eight:
In terms of Bible numerics, the name in Greek (an alpha numeric language) of our Jewish Messiah, Jesus, adds up to 888. (Eight is the number of resurrection.) This is in dramatic contrast to the devil's number 666! (Six is the number of man under sin.)
How does the number of resurrection, eight relate to blue and the Jewish people?
Okay we know eight is the number of resurrection and is tied to our Lord and Messiah. We also know from very many verses in the Bible that the Jews will soon have the veil of blindness lifted and they will be raised to new life in the Spirit. This is a form a resurrection all right. The Jews are the only nation on earth to whom our Lord promises large scale almost national salvation in Messiah. We’ve seen that the Jews, Israel and Messiah are deeply linked to the colour blue.
Seven is the number of spiritual perfection. There are dozens of scriptures relating our Lord to the number seven.
So, we can deduce that seven and eight are identified with blue, our Lord and Israel.
So, we can deduce that blue, eight, resurrection and salvation of the Jews are all linked.
Babylon- never to be rebuilt:
The original city of Babylon will not be fully rebuilt.
Some say that building of Dubai is modern Babylon. It is close, but not on the original site. There are some small buildings near the original site, which in no way could resemble anything like “Babylon the Great”. These are like a little monument, which have not been completed anyway, after the demise of Saddam.
Here is the present status of Babylon:
Jeremiah 50:38-39 “For it (Babylon) is the land of carved images and they are insane with their idols, therefore the wild desert beast shall dwell there...it shall be inhabited no more forever, nor shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation.”
This most certainly also relates to religious Babylon.
In chapter 51 we see that we have double reference in relation to end-time Babylon.
Jeremiah 51:6 “Flee from the midst of Babylon” And verse 49: “As Babylon has caused the slain of Israel to fall, so at Babylon the slain of all the earth shall fall.”
Our Lord destroyed ancient Babylon and will soon destroy modern Babylon, the world system, and its mother religion (and affiliates) again.
At the Second Advent our Messiah destroys all of the modern world and its religions and casts all the unsaved off this earth.
Three temples of doom!
The image below shows an artist’s rendition of the Temple on the Temple Mount, Jerusalem and the temple of Babylon, with the tower in the background, and the Catholic “temple” (Vatican City) from the air, which you may notice is in the shape of the male sex organ.
Why are these doomed? Well obviously Babylon is long gone...God destroyed it. The Vatican will most certainly be destroyed at the Second Coming. The next Temple soon to be built on the Temple Mount, will house the Jews at first, but the first god to enter into it will be Satan in the form of anti-Christ or anti-Messiah. He will proclaim himself to be God in this temple. At the Second Coming our Lord will return to the Mount of Olives and then destroy this temple because it has been polluted by Satan.
Our Lord Himself will “supervise” the building of the Millennium Temple on the same spot. This is found in Ezekiel chapters 40 right through to 48.
Here are just a few things that you may not be aware of relating to the Vatican (The religion of Babylon)
The leaders declared themselves to be gods. They declared themselves infallible and that they had the power to forgive sin. The Leaders hated Bible believing Christians. They believe that they have supreme power over all churches. They believe that they have the power to change God's laws and holy days. They have a hatred for the 7th day Sabbath (Saturday). They believe that salvation is only found in membership of their church. And much more!
Here is the “blue” Temple Priest and -in contrast- the fat satanic slob whom most Christians have given their children to:
What then can we conclude from all of this?
These things should not be primary as with our faith, but secondary and supportive of faith.
Firstly, none of these relationships between colours, numbers, people, clothing and places is co-incidental. It’s all part of God’s wonderful plan. He is giving us insight, albeit not in a regular way, into His miraculous word and ways.
He is giving us His ‘rubber stamp’ of proof and approval of His word and ways.
He is warning us and in particular warning those enslaved to and bound by the traditions, to come out of them.
Now, as I said up front, don’t go overboard and get rid of your red clothes and change your phone number because it has a six in it! Don’t paint your local fire engine blue. On second thoughts, if you have a red overall with white trimming on it...that one you can burn!
There is wonderful design, structure and meaning in all of God’s work. This edition only touches on this massive subject. Dozens of books have been written on these subjects. Some include: “Number in scripture.” (EW Bullinger) “The Seal of God” (FC Payne)
There are other codes and much that is unfolding now in scientific circles, proving the veracity of the Bible.
At the end of the day, according to Romans 1:19-20 “Everyone will be without excuse”
Isaiah 48:11 “I will not give My glory to another.”
2 Corinthians 6:14-17 “What fellowship can light have with darkness...Come out from among them and be separate and do not touch what is unclean.”
Galatians 4:8-11 “When you did not know God or are known by Him, how is it that you turn back to the weak and miserable elements, to which you again desire to be in bondage? You observe special days, months and seasons and years.”
I took this picture recently from a helicopter looking down on a sea of cloud early in the morning!
Job 39:8 “The range of the mountains is His pasture and He searches after every green thing.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
