|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.|

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.
19th July 2019
Shabbat Shalom to all!
“Expectation”: One simple little word with so much meaning!
Bible prophecy creates in us great expectation and excitement and hope. It brings things from the spiritual dimension into reality.
But as you can imagine, it does the opposite when the expectation is built on false prophecy, error and pure lies. It then all works in reverse. The failure kills the expectation, the excitement and hope. It actually goes much further in wrecking evangelism and other related Christian issues.
So when these Christian counterfeits come up with all these new dates for the rapture and others things found in prophecy, do they think of the damage they are causing to others? Of course not! – All they think of is themselves on a pedestal.
Rather than enhancing the gospel, they are attacking it!
Well, we have just had the giant failure of the July 17th 2019 rapture predictions made by many of those who published You Tube videos and teachings on how “for certain” this was! “It’s 100% for sure,” they said. “The Lord told me” they said. “I had a dream about it” they said. The rapture is July 17th2019 they assured all their gullible fans.
Their evidence was of course totally shockingly inadequate, superficial and absurd, to say the least!
The problem is their influence on the weak and gullible.
Let me clarify my position on the rapture again. Firstly I which it was yesterday!
►I believe that the most possible scenario is on the Feast of Trumpets. This would be one in which the other prophecies on the ground all dovetail. The Feast of Trumpets qualifies because it is the only one of the seven that could start over one of two days. Remember the Hebrew idiom and name for the Feast of Trumpets: “The Feast of which no one knows the day or hour!” This is because “No one knows the day or hour of the New Moon’s sighting. It does not mean: “No one knows the time!”
There are many other amazing aspects to The Feast of Trumpets and its associated meanings and applications, which I deal with as we get closer. But again, I say, there are many things that must be dovetailing together, otherwise – back to the drawing board!
With all of these date-setting failures in mind and the multitude of other attacks on Christians and the word of God, it has and will thrive until its grand conclusion!
Just think of it: Christianity began with 12 ordinary people, they were all martyred for their faith. The gospel spread around the world at lightning speed, and is still doing so today. And yes you are one of the participants of it all.
- Heaven is already rejoicing at your coming! (Luke 15:7)
- Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming...” Isaiah 14:9
You will receive a welcome into eternity! Which of the two verses above will be your welcome?
When the good news of the Kingdom arrives it marches in and kills the evil spirits of witchcraft and creates and makes new communities of glory growing forever outwards.
Do not grow discouraged by failed date-setters. Protect your faith and strengthen it. Keep your expectations and hope high. Be very discerning. Be holy now.
Revelation 22:11 “He who is unjust, let him be unjust still: He who is filthy, let him be filthy still. He who is righteous, let him be righteous still. He who is holy, let him be holy still.”
Edition 185. December 15th 2013
The end is at hand:
“Please stop this, you are scaring me.” This was the comment from a friend of mine while we were discussing eschatology! The things that are coming are a terror and nightmare of grand proportions for the unsaved world. “Stop this” will not make them go away. How much better to develop a fear of our Lord!
Let me assure that a healthy fear of the Lord is a requirement of His, and is desperately needed. Let me also tell you just who it is that has no fear of the Lord. Obviously it is the unsaved, but within the Church it is those who do not teach, preach or know Bible prophecy!
Fear of the Lord is one of your best friends! (Proverbs 1:7)
Excuse me for saying this, but I must assure you that teaching and sharing on these terrible and wonderful things to come humbles me greatly. I often feel so inadequate and so small in light of these great things of God. On the other hand, I don’t care if I end up standing alone; I will speak the word of God as I hear it.
I will not say like many liars that the Lord has spoken to me with an audible voice. But I will say I hear a “still small voice” in my heart about these things. I have been praying for a long time about them all.
I spent some time working in London many years ago. I stayed across the road from Speakers’ Corner in Hyde Park. Many crackpots wandered around there with signs saying “The end is at hand” and “The end is nigh.”
I thought that would be an appropriate title for this edition because it’s been so trivialized and it also gets rid of the sceptics and scoffers.
Biblical signs fall into the categories of; Signs in nature or the natural world. Signs in the sky, falling into the categories of sun moon and stars. This includes asteroids, comets, meteors etc; Signs in the political and religious fields; Signs in wars and rumours of wars.
We must never look to one or two signs of the coming of our Lord. We must look at the whole lot together. It’s like a giant jigsaw puzzle. All the pieces are needed for the picture to be complete.
In this edition I want to deal with just a few signs.
How soon O lord:
Let’s make the assumption that the tribulation period will begin on the Feast of Trumpets September 24th 2014 (5775 Hebrew calendar). If that is so, the Bible says that God will send many warning signs. That has been God’s character throughout history.
Amos 3:7 “The Lord does nothing unless He reveals His secrets to His servants the prophets first.”
Is it reasonable to presume that the tribulation will begin on the Feasts of Trumpets 2014?
If you believe in a pre-tribulation rapture, as I do then it will occur on or very close to the tribulation start. No I’m not date setting, I’m watching as commanded by my Lord.
The biggest sign of all is contained within the peace talks between the Palestinians and Israel, due to be completed just before the Feast!
The peace talks sign:
Peace between the Palestinians and Israel is so remote, most people think it will never happen. But God’s word predicts a peace covenant of some sort will happen and will in fact be the event that will start the seven-year tribulation period and the outpouring of the wrath of God.
As you well know we have peace talks on the go now, set for completion any time before the Feast of Trumpets (The nine-month deadline has been extended by John Kerry).
Do you know what the coming peace pact will be all about? It will be primarily about the two-state solution. It will be about dividing the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem. It will be about appeasing the Palestinians, the world and the counterfeit church. It will be about peace for land. It will be about all these things that God has condemned in His word.
There will be no lasting two-state solution – ever! There will be a short, interim two-state solution to appease the world.
The goal of the Palestinians is a ONE STATE Palestinian Islamic state! They will accept a TWO-STATE solution as a vehicle to total take- over.
But God’s word declares that both the world’s TWO STATE and the Arab ONE STATE solutions will explode and be replaced by GOD’S ETERNAL ONE STATE SOLUTION.
Joel 3:2 “I will gather all nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat (in Jerusalem) and I will enter into judgement with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land.”
Zechariah 12:2 “Behold I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. It shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away (Lit = divide it) will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations are gathered against it.”
So we have two ONE-STATE solutions on a collision course. You see, God knows that the Arab / Palestinian TWO-STATE solution is only a step to the Arab desire to control all of Israel and destroy the Jews.
How wise it is to line up with God’s word from the start!!
Here is a message to the soft, spineless sceptics out there, to the world’s political leaders and the leaders of much of the church, you lovers of the Palestinian word – watch this short video clip: One State in their own words.
You do not make peace with Goliath!
Israel is in growing danger from her own neighbours, from the nations of the West and from a growing number of Christian denominations and organisations. This betrayal of Israel is prophecy in the making.
The Iran nuclear sign:
Isn’t it interesting that John Kerry is the key figure in the Palestinian / Israeli peace talks and the peace deal with Iran? Of course Obama is the main figure, but Kerry is the man on the job.
It recently emerged that John Kerry is a Jew of European decent. He is a practising Catholic.
Iran has kept her word! They said they would not stop uranium enrichment and that is exactly the case. No access to secret underground facilities by inspectors has taken place. Even if it were to happen now, Iran has had more than enough time to hide things.
●A few days ago Iran announced that it had terminated and pulled out of the nuclear talks sponsored by John Kerry. They say that the tougher sanctions imposed on them by the US was the death blow.
This issue will not go away – mark my words! It will end in the soon coming war of Gog and Magog (Ezekiel 38 and 39)
It is getting closer and closer.
The comet Ison sign:
This might be a very dramatic sign or it may fizzle out. Ison has already become the sign by arriving at perihelion on Hanukkah. It is heading back away from the sun, and the earth is due to go through the tail from December 28th on through early January.
Bear in mind that the name Ison is also a form of the name Joseph, a type of our Lord and His coming to and for the Jews. The word also means “destruction” so we may be getting two important signs from Ison.
This could be a “birth pang” of the coming tribulation.
The comet has now broken up into many pieces after going through the tail of comet Lovejoy and its dive too close to the sun. The danger now is that the many small pieces can potentially do a lot more damage to the earth than one single object passing by.
The earth will now be passing through the remnants of the nucleus! So, not the tail, but the huge rocks and metal pieces which made up the original core, that could be damaging.
The individual pieces are enormous and much larger than initially thought. Some are the size of Australia!
The remnant pieces of Ison have fanned out and changed course, making the previous models wrong! So we will have to wait and see what occurs in January! Remember that if we are heading for a tribulation start at the next Feast of Trumpets, we will get a flood of signs before.
There will be huge asteroid and meteor strikes in the tribulation, so this may be a forerunner.
The Bible talks about the enemy attacking the Christian in three main areas and ways. These are through the love of the world, the flesh, and being open to the demonic. All three are closely linked and operate in concert.
Christians secretly or openly in love with the world will be gullible and glorify its heroes. Unknowingly, they will be accommodating the demons behind these “heroes” as well.
John 15:18-25 “If you were of the world the world would love its own.”
1 John 4:5 “They are of the world, therefore they speak as of the world and the world hears them. We are of God. He who knows God hears us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error.”
Those believers and ministers who are in love with the world, will be known by a number of “fruits” apart from their love of the material things of the world. They will never or very rarely talk, or teach, on hell. They will be blind to the deceptive devices of the devil and blind to the deceptions of the demonic. They will be blind to eschatology and all end-time warnings and events.
The Francis sign:
This man, the leader of the Catholic church, has just become the Time magazine “Man of the Year.” What is most interesting about this to me and those who elected him, is the speed at which he has risen to and been elevated to world – hero status, capturing the imagination of the world.
This is one of many signs that our Lord is coming soon. This apostate church and its leader are making cross-less Christianity the acceptable world norm. This man Francis is essentially telling the world that good works without salvation through the cross and shed blood of Messiah are just fine.
I am NOT coming against good works but the idea that good works without being led by the Spirit of God through and as a result of salvation means anything.
There is a subtle unsaid message here that salvation is based on works. There is also a subtle unsaid rejection of true Biblical Christianity, which separates and divides between itself and everyone outside of the cross.
Francis has told the world’s rich to share their wealth. This is pure socialism and paves the way for the extreme socialism of the coming antichrist.
There is a new powerful force being unleashed on the world now in and through this man. It is the force of unity and acceptance of all ways to God. (All roads lead to Rome!) This is universalism in its true form. It is 100% of the devil himself.
Just as huge crowds were gathering to worship Mandela in South Africa on his death, Francis was named the Time Magazine “Person of the year.” In a speech the next day he condemned the inequality between the rich and the poor as well as the “manipulation of nature.” This is pure Marxism.
Our Lord says “The poor you will have with you always.” The Bible also declares that poverty is essentially a curse and not a lack of money (Deuteronomy 28.) The Bible also gives us humans the charge to “steward nature.”
Francis is due to make some important speech and comments on these things on “World Peace Day”, January 1st 2014.
World Peace Day will have the Prince of Peace ripped and torn out of its celebrations. World Peace Day will be just like the day of Babel. World Peace Day will have the false man of peace at the helm.
Mandela, a type of the soon to be revealed antichrist:
First things first: Mandela was a peacemaker of note and a key figure for reconciliation and forgiveness in South Africa, no denying that, but we must look deeper into the issue.
The soon to be revealed antichrist, a political individual, empowered by Satan himself will charge onto the world scene as a hero, making peace.
On a smaller scale we have just seen a similar thing with Mandela. On his death, he was instantly elevated to world-hero status and almost worshipped even by Christians.
Huge numbers of the ignorant and gullible immediately proclaimed that Mandela was now in heaven. There is no doubt about the good works of the man Mandela. But most people, except atheists, think that good works automatically make you saved, and right with God –WRONG!
Interestingly by his own confession and in many stories, he rejected faith in the cross of Messiah because it was exclusive of other religions and ways. He was a universalist and humanist believing in the universal validity of all religions and the ultimate coming together of everything in one. He also participated in and venerated ancestral worship.
Mandela’s prison number was 46664. That number has significance. Four is the number of the world and we know who the number 666 relates to. This confirms the type. Of course he did not give himself that number, but the symbolism is interesting.
Mandela was also a 33rd degree freemason. Masons themselves deny this, but there is much evidence from numerous other sources. He was a “Knight of Malta.”
So, was he saved? Of course not. Nobody is saved based on their good works. We are saved through the willing acceptance of the exclusive work of the cross and shed blood of Messiah.
Mandela loved the Jews and the Palestinians, but favoured the Palestinians. He hated God’s word relating to the Jewish state. He was an enemy of God’s word in all things relating to Israel, the city of Jerusalem, and the Jewish people as contained in Bible prophecy.
The Mandela funeral:
The funeral had two aspects to it. One was for the public and the other, the actual burial was a private affair in which a bull was slaughtered and numerous other traditional, but witchcraft practises occurred. Hebrews 10:4 “For it is not possible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.”
One of the traditional leaders referred to Mandela as the “king of kings.” (Broadcast on Sky News) What blasphemy!
Judges 10:13-14 “You have forsaken Me and served other gods, Therefore I will deliver you no more. Go and cry out to the gods which you have chosen; let them deliver you in your time of distress.”
The public side of the Mandela funeral had to be completed before the sun reached its apex at midday so that the private, traditional burial and bull slaughter could take place then, according to their tradition. At the noon bull-slaughter, certain guests drank its blood.
The event took place today as I write, on December 15th. This is one day away from an important day in South Africa’s history. December 16th was originally a public holiday to mark the “Battle of Blood River” and the victory of the white Afrikaner over the original black tribes. The holiday has since been changed to “The Day of Reconciliation”.
The Voortrekker Monument in Pretoria was built to commemorate the Battle of Blood River. It is riddled with freemasonry and other occult symbols, particularly Egyptian. On the 16th December every year at midday, a sun ray disc falls onto a marble stone cenotaph through a small opening in the Egyptian patterned roof.
Both the symbolisms around the Voortekker Monument and the Mandela funeral are entrenched in the occult.
The message we get from the link between the bull-sacrifice at midday on the 15th and the midday sun- ray at the Voortrekker Monument on the 16th is that both right wing domination or the liberal left’s ways are riddled with the occult and neither can save you.
Mandela was really a forerunner of the coming antichrist. And Francis just might turn out to be the very false prophet, who will unite religions, peoples, and eventually direct all worship to the antichrist.
Was Mandela a great world leader and reconciler? Yes of course he was. But was he saved? And are you saved, is the bigger question?
John 3:3 “Unless one is born again he will not even see the kingdom of heaven.”
John 3:36 “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and He who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
John 14:6 “Yeshua (Jesus) said to him, I am the way, the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father except through Me.”
Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace you have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works lest anyone should boast.”
1 Corinthians 1:18 “The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”
Revelation 20:12-15 “I saw the dead, small and great standing before God and books were opened and the Book of Life was opened...and anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.”
So with these few verses alone (and there are hundreds more) we get a clear insight and understanding of true Biblical salvation and what it is.
Mandela, by his own confessions and by these verses, was not saved, unless he called out to our Lord in all sincerity before he died.
Mandela’s great friend, Anglican leader Tutu: ●Denies the virgin birth. ●Believes that the shed blood of Messiah is of no effect. ●Believes thatthere was no bodily resurrection of our Lord. To him resurrection means arising to a new socio-political persuasion. Is this Anglican leader saved?
Mandela’s great friend Oprah has this to say about salvation and true Biblical Christianity:
●Who you are requires no belief. ● Heaven is not a location but the inner realm of your consciousness. ●The man of the cross is an archetypal image. ●He is every man and every woman. ●My salvation comes from me. ●There is no sin. ●Jesus is not the only way. ●There are many paths to God. ●The cross is of no effect and must be overcome.
Having said all of this South Africa is one of the most wonderful nations on earth in spite of the flaws. It is a nation of goodwill and wonderful people of all races. There will always be problems where you get first-world and third-world living in each other’s pockets. But that’s what makes us strong.
I am a born and bred South African and have worked all over the world, but no place comes anywhere near this place of great opportunity and spectacular environment.
I have a sneaking feeling that South Africa is on the way to much better times. And by the way, We and our neighbouring countries are wide open to the gospel with a wave of spiritual outpouring bringing revival to many little villages and big towns.
The coming antichrist:
Very soon another individual will become known. He will be hero-worshipped by the world and by many reading these words. He will be exalted and worshipped as the saviour of the world. He will be the ultimate peace maker and reconciler. He will unite peoples, nations, governments, religions, and economic systems. He will be a true world hero.
This is the person the Bible calls “THE ANTICHRIST” All of those characteristics are right there in the Bible. The antichrist spirit is at work now in many people, but will soon manifest in one person. Others of the same antichrist spirit include Obama, Oprah, Tutu, and a host of others – including celebrities of the entertainment world.
The world loves to create heroes and in the process it must and does reject and hate the true disciples of our Lord.
John 15:18-25 “If you were of the world the world would love its own.”
1 John 4:5 “They are of the world, therefore they speak as of the world and the world hears them. We are of God. He who knows God hears us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error.”
People venerated by the world, almost without exception, are one with the god of this world. The world and its god loves its own and knows its own well.
Please don’t send me emails on Mandela; I will delete them before reading them.
The kingdom of the world is doomed and it will soon be destroyed and replaced with the Kingdom of the Living God and His saved ones.
It is only through the suffering on the cross of our Lord and shedding of His blood and the offer of miraculous salvation that hope arises. What a powerful, wonderful glorious, miraculous kingdom we have!
In closing here is some powerful, good news revealed in a worm:
The incredible, rare Tola:
Psalm 22:6 “I am a worm and not a man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.”
This verse is prophetic of the cross. Yeshua calls himself a worm, but the normal Hebrew word for a worm is “rimmah”. Here the word “Tola” is used (image above.) This word means “crimson or scarlet” - the colour of blood.
This worm clings to a tree where it dies giving birth to its young. At the same time, crimson blood oozes from the worm, staining its young permanently. Then, three days later the worm’s crimson blood dries into a pure white colour, with the young ones now red.
Isaiah 1:18 “...Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow...”
What an incredible prophecy contained in one small animal. Our Lord died on the tree. His blood was shed for His young (all of us). The blood of our Lord forever marks us, and our scarlet sins have been made white by His sacrifice.
What you must do:
●Give your life firstly to our God and not any cause or person, or ideology. Give yourself over in total surrender to our great God. He will use you as you become usable in His hands. He will NOT use you if you have not first laid down every aspect of your life to Him.
●Allow our Lord to break and re-make you His way. What safety there is in that, what glory!
●Do not be so gullible as to accept everything the world throws at you.
●Do not love the world.
In the natural environment we see signs threatening the earth. We see wars and rumours of wars heating up in the Middle East. We see the very thing that will start the tribulation period- the peace talks right on track. We see the prophesied isolation of Israel heating up. We see classic types of the antichrist and his sidekick the false prophet in Mandela and Tutu and in Francis, the leader of the Catholic church.
Isaiah 60:14-15 “The sons of those who afflicted you shall come bowing to you and those who despised you shall fall prostrate at the soles of your feet; and they shall call you the City of the Lord, Zion of the Holy One of Israel. Whereas you have been forsaken and hated, I will make you an eternal excellence, a joy of many generations.”
Micah 7:8 “Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; when I fall I will arise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord will be a light to me.”
Ezekiel 37:12-14 “Prophecy and say to them, thus says the Lord God: “Behold O My people, I will open your graves and cause you to come up from your grave and bring you into the land of Israel. Then you shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up from your graves.” “I will put My Spirit in you and you shall live...”
I took this picture of the Augrabies Falls in full flood. As I approached, on foot, I could feel the air vibrating. This is like what the word of God is to me.
Isaiah 41:18-20 “I open rivers in desolate heights, and fountains in the midst of valleys; I make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water. I will plant in the wilderness the cedar and the acacia tree...The hand of the Lord has done this, and the Holy One of Israel has created it.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
