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!
Help in troubled times:
The US economy is strong, as are the major world economies, but we are seeing critical cracks in then all as they slow! Technical indicators are pointing to a world recession. The most reliable indicator is the US bond-yield curve inversion. I won’t go into details, because, it’s not our thing. It is a reliable recession indicator.
The timing of this lines up with so many other prophetic events, soon to come. Once a recession begins it escalates into many other areas.
A recession does not mean a market crash is on the horizon, although that’s always possible, based on sudden falling sentiment, which spreads like lightning. It means hard times are coming.
Why mention this? It is because these things affect the whole world, including Christians. Are you able to withstand coming troubles? Yes, the worst will be in the tribulation, but we are in the forerunner period now.
Many believers will be casting out economic recession demons, to no avail. Many will be asking why, why, why! It’s often a different story when your own family is involved. Are we as believers all family?
It’s difficult to recognise other believers as such, and as part of our very own family, with who we will be spending eternity. Through the new birth, we are brought together by the blood of our Lord.
Troubles in the world demand your attention and focus, but if you let them eat into you, they will damage you, discourage you, lead you astray and rob you of your coming reward. These troubles in the world will be temporary and will soon make way for a new glorious eternity!
The things of the Spirit of God are real and alive. You can’t think through to spiritual reality with your intellect or understanding, but you can and must see and get rid of the obstructions to the Spirit of God being released in and through you to other people.
God’s word – the truth, is your anchor and your hope. It is your reality and it is the source of your help and for others in trouble. It is His ancient word, a miracle and a mystery that is still so relevant today, in interpretation and application! What is amazing to me is that God’s word is so ancient, yet so true. It outlines the very reason why fallen modern man will reject it. It shows that modern man has another, modern gospel, chopped and changed to suite the sin-loving, compromised masses!
Ancient metal Bibles found in Jordan:
John 6:63 “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you, they are spirit and are life.”
Proverbs 23:23 “Buy the truth and do not sell it, also wisdom, instruction and understanding.”
Psalm 62:5 “My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him.”
Note the amazing things in the verses above: Truth, wisdom, instruction and understanding are essential in these days. The source is exclusively, the Spirit of God, turning words to life!
In the face of troubles, people run to all sorts of sources for help, including the occult. There they find comfort and relief from Satan himself, in disguise, for a short while – then he kills!
But people also run to stable believers for help, are you able to really help them in the things of God and the things that will matter for eternity?
Whatever remains untouched by the work of the cross and the Spirit in of God in you, remains untouched in others too. It is the way of the mystery of the work of the cross that draws people to our King and Lord. These, the broken ones, carrying their cross, are the beautiful ones in these days.
Psalm 42:7 “Deep calls under deep!”
You can do many good things in life, all devoid of the Spirit of God and amounting to a big zero.
2 Corinthians 4:10 “We carry around in our body the death of Yeshua, so that His life may revealed in our bodies.”
What a staggering verse that is? We carry death to produce life!
Have you thought of the fact you are walking containers of the mystery of the death of our Lord – salvation for others?
Romans 6:5 “If we have been united with Him in His death, we will also be united with Him in resurrection.”
Are you able to accurately help seeking believers on all the issues of Israel, Jerusalem, the Jews and the plan of God for them? I tell you, we might know these things well, but the great majority of believers worldwide are in the dark on this incredible and exciting subject.
As a result of their darkness they are vulnerable to be Satan’s “light.”
Edition 197. March 5th 2014
The glory of the future universe:
The glory of the future universe:
The purpose of this edition is to increase your hope, faith and love for our great King and Saviour. It is to stretch your beliefs and expand your horizons into our spectacularly magnificent eternal future, bedecked with glory and wonder. Oh yes, and it’s also to scare the hell out of you – literally.
There is incredible design in God’s creative work from atoms to insects to the human form, to the earth, to the solar system, to the entire universe and to crown it all – heaven. And it is all about to get even more magnificent!
Of course most of this is beyond our imagination, but the Bible does give us insights and brief glimpses into the glory of these things – enough to put NASA and SETI (Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence) programs to shame.
Much of this edition flies in the face of modern thinking and even teaching in the church. It is way ahead of NASA, SETI and others. It also puts all science fiction to shame, and attempts by Hollywood to look into the future. In fact Hollywood’s eternal destruction is revealed right here – with all your favourite celebrities.
Some of these things you may never have heard of, or even imagined, but it’s all right here in God’s word. Hallelujah!
Other worlds with life upon them:
Are there other worlds out there in the universe? There are untold numbers of other worlds.
Is there life out in the universe and does it matter?
Let’s see what God’s word has to say.
Hebrews 1:1-2 “God who at various times (dispensations) and in different ways spoke in times past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds.”
Hebrews 11:3 “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.”
Isaiah 45:12 “I have made the earth and created man on it. It was I – My hands - that stretched out the heavens, and all their host I have commanded.” The word “host” means: (Strongs, H6633) “army” “service”, “intelligent beings.” cf. Ps.115:16.
Colossians 1:16 “By Him all things were created that are in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.”
The verses above all imply other worlds out there, and also worlds with some form of life upon them.
God contains time and space, so when we consider this question, we need to realise that life includes unimaginable things. It includes an entire dimension which transcends both space and time.
Are we the privileged planet? We most certainly do have perfect conditions on earth to sustain life. But what if there are other planets that have life forms that are radically different from ours? What if there are other planets that have spirit-type beings living there, in which physics doesn’t matter?
The issue is that we don’t know the full extent of what’s out there. We have not even been able to explore our own solar system with much more than a super- charged magnifying glass!
Our modern astronomers have come up with “educated guesstimates” of how big the universe is. They are educated fools for even trying! No matter what the size is they conjure up, what’s on the other side, what’s beyond that?
Job 26:7 “He hangs the earth on nothing.”
Are we alone in the universe? God’s nature and purpose behind all creation is ultimately to have communion, fellowship, relationship and community. God’s eternal, universal creation is in line with His character. The universe and all in it were created for loving relationships. Because God placed man on this earth, Yeshua died here once for all; otherwise He would be careering all over the universe from world to world, and re-enacting the Cross…..
It is so inconceivable that we are alone in the universe. There is a universe beyond our comprehension, of spectacular, magnificent wonder out there. It is full of life! It has no end and will never end!
We are now at the delightful dawn of our entry into this universe filled with God’s love – a place of placid tranquil peace.
Transformation of the body:
Philippians 3:21 “He will transform our lowly body that it may be confirmed to His glorious body.”
1 Corinthians 15:40-49 “There are also celestial bodies and terrestrial bodies, but the glory of the celestial is one and glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun and another glory of the moon and another glory of the stars, for one star differs from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown in corruption and raised in incorruption...it is sown a natural body and raised a spiritual body...We shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.”
At our resurrection, we disciples of Yeshua, will be instantly changed. We will go from limited understanding to unlimited, having full knowledge. We will have full mental capacity. We will be changed from corruptible to incorruptible in a flash.
Our new supernatural bodies will have both physical and spiritual dimensions. We will be able to transcend both dimensions at will, being able to manifest and appear somewhere, and in a flash somewhere else. We will be able to eat, touch and smell. We will be able to travel through the universe at the speed of thought.
We will have full brain power. In our current state we only use a very small percentage of our brain power. But this will all change in a flash. We will have the very wisdom of God. We will know all things!
Our future eternal bodies will be set at about 30 years old. Medical science has recently discovered that DNA stops ageing at about 30. This is also more or less the time our Lord was crucified and rose again. The priesthood of all believers – priests were appointed at age 30.
All impurities, sickness and deformity will be instantly removed. Our eternal future state will be perfect.
We will differ from each other based on our works done while alive on earth and in response to God’s call and leading.
We will reign with Him:
2 Timothy2:12 “If we endure, we shall reign with Him.”
Revelation 20:4 “...Those who have been beheaded for their witness to Yeshua and for the word of God...they lived and reigned with Messiah for a thousand years.”
Revelation 22:5 “And there shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever.”
Daniel 7:18 “The saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever.”
Revelation 3:21 “To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.”
Daniel 7:27 “Then the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall obey and serve Him.”
These verses above (and there are many more) are wonderful and earth shattering! They speak of our co-reign with our Lord on this earth in the Millennium. They also speak of our co-reign with our Lord in the entire universes for all eternity! Did you catch the power of that last sentence?
If we are to reign in the universe, of course there is life out there. Will our reigning in the universe be limited or unlimited? I don’t know, I’ll tell you in a thousand years time.
The amazing eternal creation:
Isaiah 9:7 “Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end.”
Psalm 19:1 “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork.”
Psalm 148:2-6 “Praise Him in the highest! Praise Him all His angels; Praise Him all His host! Praise Him sun and moon; Praise Him all you stars of light! Praise Him you heavens of heavens, and you waters above the heavens! Let them praise the name of the Lord, for He has commanded and they were created. He has also established them forever and ever. He has made a decree which shall not pass away.”
Psalm 8:3-6 “When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the starts, which You ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the Son of man that you visit him, for you have made him a little lower than the angels, and you have crowned him with glory and honour. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet.”
The great eternal regret:
In contrast to this magnificent glorious future, beyond our imagination there is a horror beyond our imagination as well.
Jeremiah 13:15-16 “Hear and give ear; do not be proud, for the Lord has spoken. Give glory to the Lord your God, before He causes darkness, and before your feet stumble on the dark mountains, and while you are looking for the light, He turns it into the shadow of death and makes it dense darkness.”
Job 38:15 “From the wicked their light is withheld...”
This place is called hell and will be the eternal dwelling place of Satan, his demons, fallen angels, popes, presidents, prime ministers, kings, queens, company CEO’s, celebrities, heroes, Hollywood directors, actors, media owners, journalists ,and other important people. The pro-abortionists and all those yelling for gay rights will be there. It will also be the eternal dwelling place of toilet janitors, cleaners, servants, blue-collar workers, union members, drunkards, murderers, thieves, prison inmates and all the scum of the earth.
The point is, that all of those outside of the saving grace of the cross and shed blood of our Messiah will end in hell. You can also reverse these roles mentioned above, because there are individuals saved in all categories of life. No one will ever be saved based on how good they were!
All humans live forever. All will see God. All unbelievers will have a glimpse of this universal glory. All unbelievers will be raised into a new incorruptible body as well. They will see God and perhaps a section of heaven at the Great White Throne Judgment. They will retain and perhaps be given full knowledge like us. BUT it will be too late for the unbeliever.
Their horror is that they will be imprisoned in the dungeon of hell for eternity, unable to escape the dark clutches of Satan, his demons and fallen angels. They will be in a supernatural prison of untold horror. This place is a creation of the living God, to forever keep all that is unholy, unclean and evil out of the universe.
You may want to keep that in mind when you try to justify what God calls sin!
Only those cleansed by the blood of our Lord have access to the future eternal universe of great glory.
Don’t be fooled by the stupid reverend at a funeral service saying, “He was a good man, and now O Gawd, we commend him into your presence.”
The wise person outside of the saving grace of God and the fool will be forever imprisoned.
1 Corinthians 1:19 “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
Psalm 14:1 “The fool has said in his heart there is no God.”
Who will inhabit this future wonder world?
Revelation 21:1-4 “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I John saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be with them and be their God.”
It will only be those born of true love, the saving love of our Lord through the shed blood and the cross of Calvary. True love includes the eradication of sin, evil and the wicked. True Godly love is the place of supreme holiness and perfection. In this new world of glory there is no sin, no evil, no fear, no stress, no sickness and no imperfection of any sort, nor any death.
Those who are saved now will rule and reign on this earth with our Lord from a base called the New Jerusalem, which will descend from heaven and float in the air above Israel for a thousand years. Those who are saved in the tribulation period will be the inhabitants of the earth, but still in natural bodies.
What you must do:
●Give yourself fully to our Lord in humility and He will give you beauty for ashes.
●Realise that your future is far more wonderful and glorious that you can imagine.
●Know that our Lord has the most magnificent plan for you for all eternity.
●Understand that you are a living treasure of great price.
●If you are suffering now, realise that you will very soon be released into a wonder-world of perfection.
Isaiah 57:15 “Thus says the High and Lofty One who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place, with him who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble.”
2 Corinthians 7:1 “Since we have these promises, beloved let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”
Hebrews 12:1 “We also are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses; let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.”
●The only way you can help the world is by staying above it.
●Walk circumspectly, and don’t sell yourself to the world. Don’t be reasoned into wrong by the council of the ungodly. Be radical on the right side. Be a testimony. Stand as a testimony in this evil hour.
Romans 8:19,21 “For the earnest expectation of the creation waits for the revealing of the sons of God...because the creation itself will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.”
Here is my song and prayer.
Great and marvellous are Your works; just and true are Your ways King of the saints; we glorify Your name and fear and tremble at your presence. You are set-apart, pure righteousness and holiness. Your judgements are manifest and magnificent. You are gloriously triumphant. My strength and courage is in You my great God.
You Lord are the warrior of all warriors and will soon destroy all warriors set against Your ways and works. Your right hand is all powerful, shattering the enemy. In your great majesty You overthrew Your adversaries and loosed Your wrath. At the breath of Your anger and fall of Your sword, Your enemies are consumed.
The wind of Your word is a terror, consuming and melting away evil spirits and storm- riders. You are the worker of terrors and wonders. The nations will soon quake in anguish at your voice. Dreadful regret will sink them in shame.
The people You have made Your own and Your inheritance, are now filled with your sustenance and glory in the presence of Your sanctuary of love. You have established us forever. We shall reign with You forever.
Numbers 14:21 “As I live all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord.”
Ephesians 3:8-9 “That I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Messiah, and to make all people see what is the dispensation of the fullness of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages, has been hidden in God who created all things through Yeshua Messiah.” (Dispensation hid in God= hidden from the ages / eons of time).
Ezekiel 10:9-11 “I looked and there were four wheels by the cherubim , and one wheel by one cherub and another wheel by each other cherub; the wheels appeared to have the colour of a Beryl stone. As for their appearance they all four looked the same, as it were a wheel within a wheel. When they went they went towards any one of their four directions; they did not turn aside when they went, but followed in the direction the head was facing.”
I took this picture of the massive Augrabies falls in full flood. The waterfall is right in the middle of desert terrain. It speaks of refreshment and abundance.
Isaiah 41:18 “I will open rivers in desolate heights, and fountains in the midst of the valleys; I will make the wilderness a pool of water and the dry land springs of water.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
