|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.|

- The Kurds in Syria call on Russia and the Assad regime for help. Bear in mind that this stage of the war broke out on Yom Kippur, the day of the anniversary of the Six-Day War, which was essentially about getting Jerusalem back into Jewish hands.
- Although the US withdrawal from Syria has thrown the region into chaos, from a biblical, prophetic point of view, we are seeing an alignment of prophetic wars and their involved nations, all lining up. These are the wars of Syria / Damascus, (Isaiah 17) Gog & Magog (Ezekiel 38 &39 and Psalm 83. There are 10 nations mentioned in the Psalm 83 war and nine nations in the Gog / Magog war. Some of the nations overlap indicating that this could all be one big war.
- Russia comes in to fill the void left by the US in Syria."Jerusalem spooked by Russia's growing control over the Midle East." (Times of Israel 18 October.)
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
Matthew 21:15 “When the chief priests and the scribes (Media) saw the wonderful things that He did...they were indignant.”
Matthew 23:13 “Woe to you scribes, (Media) Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven for men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.”
Deuteronomy 27:18 “Cursed is he who makes the blind to wander out of the way of God.” (Media)
Jeremiah 8:6, 9 “Everyone turned to his own course... Look the false pen of the scribe certainly works falsehood...The wise men are ashamed, and dismayed and taken. Behold, the have rejected the word of the Lord; so what wisdom do they have.” (Media)
Isaiah 30:1 “Woe to the rebellious children, says the Lord, who take counsel, but not of Me, and who devise plans, but not of My Spirit, that they may add sin to sin.” (Media)
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.
18th October 2019
Shabbat Shalom to all!
- There is still no Israeli government in sight as Bennie Gantz rejects Netanyahu’s latest offer to form a unity government. But Gantz says he is thinking about it. It is this impasse that is delaying the release of the “Deal of the Century.”
- AThe US brokered ceasefire in Syria is falling apart one day after it was instituted! Mike Pompeo tells Netanyahu this morning (18th October) that the US will still support Israel.
- Late breaking news is that this morning 18th October, the ceasefire has broken down with renewed fighting, shelling and bombing in the region of the ceasefire as smoke rises from towns.
- Iran says it will continue to violate the nuclear deal as it moves to higher levels of uranium enrichment, provoking the world and Israel in particular.
- The Russian bear is making serious, strategic advances in Syria and in the wider Middle East. Iran and Turkey are fateful players, preparing the way for WW111 (The war of Gog and Magog, Syria and others. We are witnessing a very fast reshuffling of the stage.
- What we are seeing in the Middle East is battle for power and control – all perfectly prophesied!
Israel has a beady eye on it all. Prophetically, Israel must be a key component of these wars. It really doesn’t matter who does what, because prophecy will and is being fulfilled!
By the way, because the Bible prophecies certain things that does not mean it is sanctioning those things. They will come to pass right or wrong.
Bible interpretation and application:
In this report I want to draw your attention to some very important issues relating to our understanding of the Bible. These issues have always been important, but now as we head into these dangerous end-times, it is of critical importance.
We need to understand that Bible prophecy comes in various forms. Sometimes it is written directly for the present time exclusively. For example, the prophecies of Isaiah 17 relating to the soon coming destruction of Damascus, Syria, have never had an occurrence in history. Therefore its interpretation and application is for one point in time – now.
Then, we have many prophecies that were events that took place historically. That would be the interpretation. But they may have application to future events. This is called prophecy with a double reference. In these cases you need to be well disciplined in your application. Never take and application or analogy too far!
In dealing with prophetic application you must always be on guard against presumption. You really do need the gifts of the Spirit to correctly see into prophecy. Bear in mind that the word of God is useless, dead letter, or it is alive and presently speaking. The baptism in the Spirit makes the difference.
Sometimes a prophetic vision or message may be built on a number of different sources, and like a grand conductor, the Spirit of God puts it all together.
Prophetic interpretation and application must not contradict any verse in the Bible.
There is much to be said about prophetic dreams and visions. Personally, I don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater, but I’m very cautious. More so from whom they originate.
But, the Bible says that there will be an increase in dreams and vision as the end approaches. We must be watchful, but also watchful in relation to whom these dreams and visions come from, because many, in their pride, are on the manipulation band wagon!
The central purpose behind all prophecy is to reveal and inform us about the coming of our Lord, It is o give us knowledge, understanding, wisdom and sight of His soon coming and all the events surrounding His coming. It is bring Israel face to face with her Messiah.
Bible prophecy also reveals the work of the enemy. It reveals the modern kiss of Judas in replacement theology!
Time is very short!
We must always beware of spiritual novices with some of these gifts. Many of them create a big mess, which has to be unravelled.
We must always be aware of the spirit in and behind certain Bible teachers and ministers. Too many have a pride and ego problem, which the devil uses to bring in great error. Too many are subtly creating division, which becomes a sect and finally a cult!
Beware of those who come with forcefull "private or personal interpretations". (2 Peter 1:20)
Here is a shocking portion of scripture:
1 Corinthians 1:10-13 “I plead with you brethren, by the name of our Lord, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgement...Now I say to you this, that each of you says, ‘I am of Paul’, or ‘I am of Apollos’, or ‘I am of Cephas’, or ‘I am of Christ.’ Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptised in the name of Paul?”
This scripture above is a terrible indictment on the church. Today we see so clearly, the disastrous effects of a church divided. Yet we still the proud and arrogant, trying to “capture” and control people in their divisive sects.
There is strength in unity. There is extra strength in godly unity. In these days a solid Spirt-led knowledge of God’s word is an absolute necessity and a safety net
You should listen to no one who has does not have the evidence and fruit of listening to, and understanding the voice of God. There are many voices out there, all vying for your attention. Learn to be discerning and shut off the voices of the world.
In your pursuit of God and in your own study time, you need to be seriously disciplined. I heard someone say the other day: “They’ve taken away discipline in the schools now the children don’t respect us, their parents anymore.”
How true and tragic that statement is. It applies jus as well to your relationship with our Lord. No discipline no respect for Him and don’t expect to get anything from Him.
Part of our discipline involves waiting patiently for our Lord. What alternative do we have? But keep your spiritual eyes and ears open. Things may suddenly develop very fast!
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!
