Shabbat Shalom to all!
But first: The American vote: A vote for the Democrats is a vote to rebuild Babylon (which God destroyed) and a vote for the Republicans is a vote for a reprieve for the world, and for many kingdom of God principles.
Walking right in a crooked world:
Romans 12:3 “I say to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one the (a) measure of faith.”
The original word used for a ‘measure’ of faith is “Metron,” meaning a determined, measured -off extent.
This applies particularly well to teachers, watchmen and the like. They get given a “spear” and sceptre of authority and influence, which is limited.
But God can change the limit or measure depending on the obedience of the subject.
Many in ministry have no “metron” of God at all but only presumption. There ‘metron’ is manipulative, deceptive, which has no authority or ‘spear’ behind it at all.
As a teacher, you can become the “deceiver of the brethren” and nothing but a control freak if you’re not within your limit of authority.
Many in ministry have had a spiritual gift imparted to them through the laying on of hands. That is perfectly biblical, but as with all things true, be careful, there is a counterfeit too. Laying on of hands can transfer the spirit of the imparter.
The laying on of hands by a false teacher also lays on you false words of false authority. I once heard a prophetic anointing being given to a minister by another false minister, who said at the time of laying on of hands that the recipient would have massive influence and authority around the world. Shortly afterwards he was dead!
Don’t let anyone “lay hands on you suddenly”, which means too quickly without full discernment. It is your job to see to that.
You can receive a false anointing, or mantle of demons from the laying on of hands by a false teacher.
Following a false leader will lead you astray eventually. You must test the spirits. When you come into agreement with a false teacher you have opened a door that you will find very hard to close.
As the world has left the word and is experiencing the dramatic consequences, so the same is true for a section of the church, which has left the word. It has left the literal interpretation and Spirit-led application of the word – disaster has come to those churches.
Those churches then operate in a false ‘anointing’, with no ‘metron’ at all.
Don’t underestimate the power of going off into error. It can wreck you. You will not live right on wrong doctrine. It’s progression will destroy you spiritually.
The only unified, universal message of the unsaved is that sin is okay and the Bible is not.
When you affirm that some sin like homosexuality is a basic human right and then go honestly to the Bible, you will notice that never the twain shall meet! (And I’m not talking of the Moody Blues!) You have to throw out one or the other.
Have you noticed that we are seeing so much fake news today? These things are all spiritually charged and on course – the wrong course.
Trust in the media is declining fast. The world’s mega media empires have been uniting and merging. This has seen a dramatic escalation in unified misinformation and fake news. But most people eventually see the hidden agenda behind the mass media and reject it.
The mass media have shot themselves in the foot. You can’t hoodwink people forever, except the uneducated, fools and the possessed.
Tragically, the same is happening in many churches who have a message that just doesn’t fly anymore, and disillusioned people just give up.
The image below is your key to a successful Christian life, even in these times. It is the light of life (to the Jew and Gentile) represented in the menorah, the truth of God’s word (all of it), and the application of the cross.
►Here is a most important sign to stay safe in these dangerous days of deception: Who else shares and agrees with what you have been taught. There is always a group of mature, deeply spiritual, highly informed Spirit-led pastors, leaders, and teachers out there. They are your spiritual measuring rod. They are your safety net.
In these days of much resistance, perhaps the greatest opportunities to grow your faith in our Lord, loom large!
You can change your future now. When you get there, it’s a done deal, over and out - no going back! There will be tears of regret, gnashing of teeth or wonderful relief in eternal victory. You will be met with: “Well done good and faithful servant, or the terror of “depart from Me, I never knew you!”
“The fire will test each one work of what sort it is.” (1 Corinthians 3:13)
The battle is for your mind. Your mind is the great aggregator, sifter and decider of what you think say and do. But inside your mind is your own “holy of holies” That is your choice-centre. If the devil can get in there he will defeat you.
You must fill your heart and mind with the word.
Your mind is the doorway to your spirit – the ultimate target and goal of the devil.
What often angers me no end, is the presumption by the shallow prophets that they are hearing God for you. You must listen to them, as though they, in all their error and failed predictions, hear God speaking to them. They think that others don’t have ears to hear God. In reality God is speaking to some of them and telling them to get out of ministry.
It’s a very serious thing to lead someone astray.
Be careful when you say you speak for God! Of course there is nothing at all wrong with saying that you believe, God is saying this or that, or that you feel impressed by Him about this or that.
So much of “the Lord told me to tell you,” and “I had a dream” is pure garbage.
If you put all the rapture dreams everyone and his auntie is having these days into a big aggregator machine, the machine would explode, because they’re all so different, with different time lines, accompanied with “the Lord told me, its 100% true.” The machine would spit smoke and say, “sorry, no comprehendo”. So you take out the instruction manual and it says: “This machine does not work and will self destruct if fed lies.”
Deuteronomy 13:1-3 “If there arises among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams and he gives you a sign and a wonder ...and it is in error, you shall not listen to his words.”
Jeremiah 23:25-32 “I have heard what the prophets have said who prophecy lies in My name, saying, ‘I have dreamed, I have dreamed!’...Indeed they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart...I am against the prophets who steal My words from his neighbour. I am against the prophets who use their tongue and say, ‘The Lord says.’ I am against those who prophesy false dreams, and tell them and cause My people to err...I did not send them...”
Don’t throw the baby out with the whiskey. There are occasions – few of them, where dreams may have some relevance.
The jury is still out on Pastor Dana Coverstone’s dreams as their fulfilment still lies ahead. He most certainly does not come across as one looking for self-affirmation though.
Edition 205. April 23rd 2014
The tragic church of the last days:
The tragic church of the last days:
The last days are characterised by a huge false or counterfeit church, which is part of the satanically led interfaith movement. It will contain the members of the World Council of Churches, the denominational churches, those of the Inter-Faith Movement, Chrislam and many others. It will be the majority with many members.
At the same time there will be a solid, Godly, pure, holy, true, glorious Church led by the Spirit of the Living God. It will have few members compared to the false- indeed, just a remnant.
Because the tragic end-time church avoids and won’t have anything to do with God’s plans for the last days it will become a significant participant of Satan’s plan. Blindly, it will follow the devil’s devices.
While preparing their flock for the wolves of the world, modern ministers shield and protect the flock from solid Biblical truth and the cross of Messiah and its revolutionary work.
Gone are the days when the religious churches tried, albeit half- heartedly to overcome the world; they now happily join the world using their own reasoning and intellect, thinking that this is the right way to go. Because the effervescing life of Messiah is not in their hearts, the doomed devil is their guide!
Many churches are spiritually blind, but the big mistake they make is being blind to the fact that Satan is not! If you are spiritually blind because of your own doings you will be led into error. When you are in error you are on Satan’s territory and God is not obliged to “lead you into all truth.” (John 16:13).
Obadiah 3 “The pride and arrogance of your heart has blinded and deceived you.”
The character of these times:
The curse of instant everything is today’s hallmark. It’s very easy to get instant knowledge with the advent of digital everything. It most certainly makes study a lot easier. But godly character doesn’t come that way. It can take years to get one single verse into your head, heart and character!
The big mistake the modern church is making is that it wants people to feel good. Its primary motivation is for its blind sheep to carry on carrying on, and to have a nice motivational uplifting Sunday sermon to give them assurance that they can carry on regardless.
Modern Christianity is so incredibly far below the New Covenant standard that the ways of the world in the church are no longer even disguised! True Biblical Christianity has been so infected that it is poisonous. The modern church has created a world and a god in its image.
Before you sit there and say “don’t be critical”, let me share with you a few of the many verses of heavy criticism of the end-time church from our Lord.
Matthew 24:12 “...The love of many will grow cold.” Revelation 3:16 Those of the “lukewarm church of Laodicea will be spat out.” Romans 11:22 The wild olive branches, grafted in, will be cut off as they come against God’s work of restoring the true olive branch (Israel.) 2 Timothy 4:3 “The time will come when people will reject sound doctrine and heap up for themselves teachers of their own.” Timothy 4:1 “In the latter times some will depart from the faith giving heed to seducing doctrines of demons.” 2 Thessalonians 2:11 “God will send them strong delusion because they did not receive the love of the truth.”
Now here are some key words from some of these verses relating to the end-time church: ●Love grows cold, ● lukewarm, ●spat out, ●depart from the faith, ●cut-off, ●deceived, ●doctrines of demons, ●perilous times, ●apostasy, falling away, ●strong delusions, and ●end-time scoffers.
Our Lord warns five times in the Olivet discourse of end-time deception!
Romans 16:17 “Now I urge you brethren, note those who cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.”
2 Timothy 4:3 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine...”
Be aware that the devil makes Christians too. They are full of love but not truth.
We are in a world where love of the world is the all encompassing big thing. The deception is – forget the details, for the greater good of the world. What the world thinks, believes and does is sacrosanct! This is the doctrine of CNN and the world’s media...and many churches!
Malachi 2:17 “You have wearied the Lord with your words...in that you say everyone who does evil is good in the sight of the Lord and He delights in them.”
The call of the Berean:
Acts 17:10-11“The brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea. When they arrived they went into the Synagogue of the Jews. These were more fair minded that those of Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.”
The duty of the church is to produce Bereans not those who blindly follow wolves. The duty of the Church is to lead people into all truth and not just aspects of it:
Acts 20:27-29 “For I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God...For I know that after my departure, savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock.”
The duty of the Church is to lead you to glory. It is to lead you to experiential Passover, then to Pentecost and to Tabernacle with God. The duty is to lead the people into the experience and presence of the living God now – right into that secret place where no one outside of the cross can go.
Psalm 27:5-6 “For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock. And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes I will sing praises to the Lord.”
The biggest danger to your Christianity is some of today’s churches. Many people give themselves to the wisdom of the minister, but in many cases he doesn’t even know the difference between God and the devil! How many preachers do you know who blindly support the occult practices of Christmas and Easter and reject participation in the Feasts?
True discipleship is cross- bearing and brokenness and the application of it. It is getting self off the throne of your own life. Only these will experience the depths of Messiah.
Brokenness means sorrow for sin and all the pride of life. It is only after the alabaster box of perfume was broken that the fragrance filled the air. Brokenness is not an end but the start of a wonderful journey full of glory.
The secret key to an incredible, purpose-full Christian life is taking all of God’s word at face value and applying it.
The prime aim of the church is not to meet the needs of the people and keep the institution going. The aim is not to tickle the ears of the members and give them peace, peace and more peace. The aim is not to give them prosperity so that they can finance the excessive, exorbitant, luxury lifestyles of Mrs Barbie Mascara and her friends.
2 Corinthians 5:15 “He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves, (cross bearing) but for Him who died for them and rose again.”
1 Corinthians 1:18 “For 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.”
The way to receive truth is to want it and then to be open to it, and then be open to change accordingly. God will not give you His truth without you meeting His requirements. This is exactly why many minsters of the gospel can do nothing but lead you astray. They themselves are driven by the ulterior motives of their own worldly financial success.
The blind and deaf will not give you the news. They will give you what they think you need /want to hear, so that they can continue to be elevated in their office.
This may sound odd, but do you know what one of the secret keys is to evaluating a pastor or minister? It is how passionate he is for the things of the Lord, and how filled with hatred he is!
You can’t love everything and you mustn’t. You must love and hate the opposite. Your love attachment to our Lord must burn away all the rubbish in your life. That won’t happen until you hate the evil in your life. If the Holy Spirit is at work, He will do just that. If not, you have other spirits at work in you.
Those who say they love everyone are liars. Everyone outside of the cross hates the cross of Messiah and people who are of the cross!
The church has moved in line with the virtues and values of the world so that it can stay relevant. Do you think that’s of God? Do you think that has helped the church? It has turned the church into “Laodicea”; ready to be spat out of the mouth of God. The secularisation of the church is never justified and always weakens it. Christian compromise is everywhere. It has a deadly price!
The ecumenical and interfaith movement does not strengthen the church it weakens it and seperates it from the Godly power, which only comes through the cross.
Mixture of truth and error is a deadly, dangerous disease. That’s like mixing milk and petrol. Your car will not go.
Deuteronomy 27:18 “Cursed be he who makes the blind to wander out of the way.”
Romans 1:18 “The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness.”
Romans 2:8 “To those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness – indignation and wrath.”
The ministers of many churches intend to keep the people stupid, simple and uniformed. This enslaves the people to them. The Catholics have perfected this for 1500 years! In fact they are preparing their people to open wide their arms for the antichrist!
To be part of the bride of Messiah you must divorce the god of this world and his agents.
Most people who don’t believe in hell don’t believe in sin! They can’t see what sin is because they are in spiritual darkness.
Let me tell you that hell and sin go together. If you remove hell from your doctrine, as most church ministers do today, you are automatically playing down sin and their world is then full of sin and evil. And if you don’t believe in sin and hell, why bother to believe in heaven?
Psalm 97:10 “You who love the Lord, hate evil! He preserves the souls of His saints; He delivers them from the hand of the wicked.”
The church’s end-time duty:
Think of a three act play. You go in and sit through the first act, which is the Old Covenant. Then you go and get popcorn at intermission. Now you come in and watch the second act which is the New Covenant. Then its popcorn time again. But what’s this I see? You now get in your car and go home before the third act which is where the greatest drama of all time is wrapped up. The third act is the culmination and completion of the Old Covenant and the New all in seven years.
The final act of the greatest drama of all time is just beginning. The curtains have opened, the actors are on the stage and the monumental events are starting to unfold. The play is on! And you Mr. Idiot have walked out and gone home before the curtains went up!
Now what’s this I hear? You sit at home and bark at those who sat through the whole play. You have your dumb, stupid ideas of what you know nothing about because you were too much of a slob to watch the third act.
Let me ask you, why did you walk out of the theatre before the third act? Whaaaat! You walked out because your minister told you not to get into that end- time stuff! – You really are an idiot! O, and by the way, your minister is a wolf- pack leader. He was a shepherd of sheep, and then he became a wolf-leader of sheep. Now he’s a wolf-pack leader of wolves! You gave yourself to wolves, just when the climax of the ages was being unfolded!
You got deceived just as magnificent, perfect peace, righteousness and holiness were breaking out on the world-stage for a thousand years!
Do you know how to spot a wolf-pack leader? He listens to other wolves and studies under them. He leads you to and leaves you with the other wolves! He makes sure you are unprepared for our Lord at His coming, and are well prepared for the false prophet. He ignores and teaches you to ignore all that end-time stuff!
The end-time Church’s attack on the Bible:
The Bible says more about the end- time scenario than any other subject including the life of Messiah on earth. About 27% of the Bible relates to and contains end -time prophecy.
Amazingly most of the professing church today cuts out end-time prophecy. This is far more common than you believe.
The most bizarre example was when the new head of TBN, the wife of the now deceased head, barred all end-time preaching and teaching by any participants on TBN. As I’ve said before this amounts to nothing but stabbing yourself in the eyes.
Sound doctrine is impossible with one third of the Bible removed. Sound living is even less likely! There is a spiritual ulterior motive in removing end-time teaching. They want their people to continue supporting their exorbitant lifestyles.
When you get saved you come into a package deal. The Bible is not only part of the deal, but it is in fact one with Messiah. If you remove parts of the Bible you have massacred the Lord Himself. How can you say you love someone, but not all of His word – you raving hypocrite! You must say you only love the aspects of the Lord that suit you!
It is our job to search for, to receive with joy, and to apply all of God’s word. There are always consequences for not doing so.
The image below is a composite of direction finding and searching instruments:
Beware the King James only cult:
There is a large group of Christians out there who have fallen prey to the cult of King James Onlyism! They teach and believe that the King James Version of the Bible is the only inspired version. But they don’t stop there; they then go on to claim that all other translations are the work of Satan. They don’t stop there either. They go on to claim that anyone who does not use the King James Version is not saved and goes to hell.
This cult is born in extreme pride and arrogance. They effectively throw God off His throne and put themselves there deciding who goes to hell based on what translation they use. I know this sounds comical, but you would be surprised at how many are totally deceived by this unbelievable ignorance and arrogance.
The single greatest characteristic of this cult is that they are blind. They have been blinded by God. They can’t see the depths of their error. I don’t want to go into the origins here because it makes me so angry and I want to have a good day.
The danger is that they influence other people and try to bring them into their evil web of judgementalism and control. They are evil control freaks – all of them.
When you encounter King James onlyism, switch off, run away, shut them up, don’t have anything to do with them.
How to pick a church:
●It must have all three acts of the play (above)! It must preach and teach the centrality of the cross, the fear of the Lord, hell, and repentance. ●It must preach the full doctrine of Christ as represented in Hebrews 6:1-2. ●God’s church must take a stand and be against replacement theology. ●It must have all five of the ministry gifts in operation especially the prophet / watchman in this day. ●The Church must set you on fire for our Lord and the knowledge of God. ●It must ground you in Biblical wisdom for life today. ●It must come actively against the major work of the devil today which is interfaith. ●The minister must know he is not employed by the people, but by God. ●He must not be relevant to the world but to God’s word. ●God’s Church must create in you a broken, humble and soft heart before our Lord and His word. ●There must be a clear distinct cut and separation from false doctrine. ●Do you know that the Bible has many “hard sayings” within it? God’s Church will not remove them.
Today there are a fast growing number of people who legitimately can’t fit in with their local church. It is the fact that many churches have become nothing more than institutions, rather than living organisms. In essence there is no such thing as the un-churched. We are all members of the Church of the living God. Are you moving forward with our Lord? That is the prime issue.
A snippet of testimony:
All my life I’ve been a searcher for beauty and perfection. I’ve looked for it in many places and through many experiences. My understanding of what that even is has gone through a radical metamorphosis. Only in the last 25 years or so, have I seen glimpses of the magnificence of God’s perfection.
Of course there is a danger of going overboard, but then don’t fall into the ditch on the other side! You may have heard the well-known cliché, “God is not looking for perfect people, just forgiven people.” It’s not so much, “are you perfect”, but do you want to be. I most certainly do want to be perfect. That set’s you on the right road.
That love as with any love, must be tempered, disciplined and refined by the Spirit of the living God. Love matures as we move forward in holiness. Sin begins to drop off and becomes repulsive. Joy fills our lives. Experience of the glory of God is exclusive and costly. It takes time to develop and requires radical, deep change, but it is so, so worth it!
Psalm 119:63 “I am a companion of all those who fear You and of those who keep Your precepts.”
Psalm 15:1-2 “Lord who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill? He who walks uprightly, and works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart.”
Psalm 25:14 “The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him and He will show them His covenant.”
What you must do:
●There are two distinct churches in the end days. One is a tragic counterfeit and the other is a glorious masterpiece! Decide for yourself which one you want to be part of!
●Many will repent in these days, but scripture warns that the majority won’t. Do you want to go with the flow of the majority? Do you want to sail with the wind or set your sail against the wind of the world?
●Do you want to fit in with the majority, or do you want to be part of Gods glorious “few”?
●Do you feel connected to and with the world – you need to be disconnected.
●Do not have a servant attitude to Satan and his world and word.
The tragic church of the last days is blind to the last days. They are unprepared for Messiah and well prepared for the counterfeit Messiah. They are full of a mixture of truth and error. They are on the broad way full of human rights and reasoning at the expense of God’s rights. They are of the spirit of darkness and the god of this world.
The modern church has become relevant to the world by becoming relative in doctrine. Absolutes have gone out of the window and in their place has come the absolute authority of the human based on human experience, grown and nurtured in the world system.
The modern church has the power of persuasion, but lacks the authority of God! Hell from beneath is excited to meet you at your coming! (Isaiah 14:9)
The great end-time tragic church, empowered by the god of this world, is ready for its final rebellion against God.
1 Peter 4:7 “The end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayer.”
2 Samuel 22:28-29 “You will save the humble people; but Your eyes are on the haughty, that You may bring them down. For You are my lamp O Lord; The Lord shall enlighten my darkness.”
Psalm 97:11 “Light is sown for the righteous and gladness for the upright in heart.”
Psalm 89:15 “Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! They walk O Lord in the light of Your countenance.”
I took this picture sitting at a waterhole in the Etosha desert as thousands of zebras streamed in over the horizon. The symbolism is: Are you a blind follower, or a follower of our Lord and His herds?
Isaiah 43:20 “The beasts of the field honour Me, the jackals and the ostriches, because I give waters in the wilderness and rivers in the desert, to give drink to My people, My chosen.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
