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.

The tragic consequences of removing Bible prophecy:
The tragic consequences of removing Bible prophecy:
If you remove, downplay or allegorise Bible prophecy, there are many tragic consequences.
Let’s define our terms: Bible prophecy is also referred to as “end-time” teaching, or “last- days” teaching, or its theological name, “eschatology” which is simply the study of end-time Biblical events.
It includes the study and teaching of all the Bible verses that have a predictive nature to them. This includes verses relating to the close of the Church age, the rapture, the tribulation period, the coming of antichrist, all the events of the tribulation period, the wrath of God, the Second Coming, the Millennium and the eternity of eternities. It includes the study of heaven, hell and all other things relating to our near and long-term future.
27% of the Bible is prophetic in nature. It begins in Genesis and is found in every book of the Bible. Not all unfulfilled Bible prophecy is eschatological though.
Bible prophecy in history:
Bible prophecy in the Old Covenant has a 100% literal fulfilment record. Not one missed and many were very detailed. Bible prophecy of the New Covenant which has been fulfilled up to this point in time also has a 100% literal fulfilment record.
Now as we look at the prophecies of the entire Bible, we see a consistent pattern of literal fulfilment with not one miss. This has powerful implications for the remaining prophecies still to be fulfilled. You are gambling against immeasurable odds if you think the self-same pattern of 100% literal fulfilment will not continue!
Amazingly, we are seeing these remaining, unfulfilled prophecies starting to come about now.
Bible prophecy in many ways is the eyes of the Church.
The prophecy of the world:
If you reject or downplay Bible prophecy you will, whether you like it or not, be subject to the “prophecy” of the world – and that’s a guarantee!
God’s prophecies come from His heart and mouth and are true. The world’s prophecies are formed and fashioned by the god of the world – Satan and are the root of error.
Here are some of the world’s prophecies: ●All roads lead to God. ●The Bible has no validity in today’s world. ●What is important is the group-speak of the world in which the world’s mass-media is the supreme guide of virtues and values and what is right or wrong. ●Do what the majority says. ●Hollywood and its celebrities must be well-worshipped. ●Give the Palestinians what they demand and want because it is legitimate. ●God has no future plans of any description for Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews. ●World peace is coming soon on the wings of a two-state solution for Israel and the Palestinians. ● Islam is a peace-loving religion. ●Biblical Christianity is the true enemy and must be destroyed.
Bible prophecy is supernatural and miraculous in origin and fulfilment. If you remove it, not only will your world be filled with deadly error, it will also have an element of emptiness about it.
The big central issue:
►If you have no end- times, you do have continuing times. That’s logical isn’t it?
If you have a world of continuing times, you have to make it pretty! You must love your world and make it sustainable, not so? You must make peace with your continuing world.
2 Peter 3:3-4 “In the last days scoffers will come saying, ‘where is the hope of His coming? all things will continue as they have...”
The removal of end times – is the most dangerous thing you can do.
Partial removal of eschatology is just as big a problem. You’ve heard all the, “no one knows the time” chants? They believe in certain things about end- time prophecy, but have this universal wolf-cry, “No one knows the time, brother!” What they are really saying is “don’t bother trying to know – all things will continue as normal”!
If you reject Bible prophecy you will have to be led, by the world’s media. The media will be your eyes and ears. They will tell you what’s going on out there. The god of this world, Satan, will be your guide and instructor.
He will use his servants in the media to inform you and fill you with his ways.
Many with no knowledge of prophecy will give up on God when the great shaking of the whole world begins.
Evil will soon reach epic proportions, never before seen. Are you ready?
1 Corinthians 15:19 “If Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins...if in this life only we have hope in Christ we are of all men most pitiable.”
The verse above is the lot of many, or should I say even most people today. Without the wonderful prophetic truths of God’s word alive in your heart, you are most pitiable!!
The prophetic time clock
Bible prophecy has its dramatic, monumental climax in the very soon- coming destruction of Satan’s world with all his demonic cohorts. It is a burning fuse! If you play around with a bomb and you don’t know or can’t see that the fuse is burning, you are going to get blown up.
Bible prophecy is God’s safety net. It is His miraculous rescue plan. It is His act of love.
Remove Bible prophecy and you will see none of this.
How many churches do you know that continuously preach the same world-friendly messages week after week in the face of current unfolding prophetic events? What a disgusting shame! How many churches do you know, who in this day, constantly preach on self-esteem, self-motivation, self, glorification, self love and worldly success, while Bible prophecy begins to unfold around us? What a disgusting situation!
Prophecy and time:
A hundred or thousand years ago the issues of the coming of our Lord were not as important as they are now. As we get closer to the time, so our Lord reveals more and more about the time and the urgency to be ready.
Daniel 12:9 “Go your way Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.”
Prophecy is sealed until the time of the end, but bear in mind that there is another side to the story. If you are not open to God you are in danger. Both Satan and God will blind you!
As our Lord pours out His Spirit of understanding of end-time things, so the spirit of antichrist pours out his understanding, designed to lead you astray.
Do you think God would not blind people? Think again and read on!
The following verses are shocking and little known in this day:
2 Corinthians 4:3-4 "Our gospel is hidden to them that are lost in whom the god of this world (Satan) has blinded the eyes of them who believe not."
2 Thessalonians 2:11 “God will send them strong delusion so that they will believe the lie.”
Isaiah 44:18 “They do not know nor understand, for He (God) has shut their eyes so that they can’t see and shut and darkened their hearts so that they can’t understand.”
Obadiah 3 “The pride and arrogance of your heart has blinded and deceived you.”
Proverbs 1:24-26 “Because I have called and you have refused, I have stretched out My hand and no one regarded, because you have disdained all My counsel , and would have none of My reproof . I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your terror comes.”
Isaiah 1:15 “When you spread out your hands, I will hide My eyes from you; even though you make many prayers, I will not hear you. Your hands are full of blood.”
Isaiah 59:2 “Your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.”
Jeremiah 14:10-11 “They have loved to wander and have not restrained their feet, therefore the Lord does not accept them...Do not pray for this people, for their good.”
Do you see that there are qualifications before you can hear the voice of God? Do you also see that both God and the devil are in the business of blinding and closing the ears of certain types?
With Bible prophecy missing in your life, you are an empty gong, with as much significance. You will go into the future as a rudderless ship. You will be unholy and dirty and will always battle to overcome evil and sin.
Your opinions on most things will be meaningless.
If you are not open to receive all Bible prophecy willingly, unambiguously and immediately, you will also be a doubter and rejecter of many other Biblical truths. You need to have an open heart to allow God into every “room” of your life.
Prophecy as law:
Bible prophecy is the grand “I told you so.”
You can’t be fined for breaking a law of the road that doesn’t exist. But you can be fined for breaking a law that is in the statute books and displayed on the road signs!
Bible prophecy plots the course of the age (Ephesians 2:2) and all the details in between. The Bible says of the unbeliever that “they are without excuse.” (Romans 1:20)
The purpose of Bible prophecy is to lead, guide, inform, warn, judge, reward and prove the veracity of God’s word.
There is a powerful evil spirit at work behind the removal of Bible prophecy. It leaves you in a world of lawlessness, where there are no absolutes and anything goes. You can’t live right with wrong believing and thinking.
When people stand before God in judgment, they will have no legitimate excuse. Ignorance of the law (God’s word) is not acceptable.
Everyone who rejects any aspect of the word of God has a big surprise coming with eternal consequences.
You can’t break God’s law. It will break you!
How many times have you said to yourself, “If I knew that I wouldn’t have done it” or “If only I could turn the clock back?” It is Bible prophecy that alerts us to things to come, giving us confidence to go forward.
The most powerful quotes in the world:
These are the words of Adolf Hitler. They are the principles of CNN, Sky, BBC and all the world’s mass media. They all use these Hitler- principles repeatedly and few can even see it. The modern media have a secret agenda. They all have the desire to do and present the desire of their boss- Satan.
These are the unseen tools of the modern media’s trade, fermented in the heart of Hitler. They are designed to manipulate you into and under their control. Ancient Jezebel spirits, Sodomite spirits and the evil spirits of a host of evil gods hidden in camouflage are behind the news media of this day.
Hitler: “Make the lie big, make it simple and keep saying it, and eventually the people will believe it. Tell the lie big enough and frequently enough and it will be believed.”
“How fortunate for governments that people don’t think! It is not truth that matters, but victory.”
These simple but profound Hitler quotes are at work in the world’s media and are as real today as ever!
Nearly everyone blindly accepts these Hitler methods today and they can’t see it. This is the power of Satan’s prophecies at work. If you know Bible prophecy you have less chance of being influenced by the spirit of Hitler in the mass media.
How to judge Bible prophecy teachers:
Beware of those who claim that the Lord speaks to them in an audible voice. Beware of male ministers in dresses. Beware of those who insist on being called by special titles like “father, mother” or others.
Beware of novices in the Lord, claiming to be teachers, who do not know their Bible backwards and do not know the voice of the Spirit of God. Beware of those who use manipulation to gain a following.
If you have avoided Bible prophecy out of ignorance or because you are a new convert, or the like, that’s fine. But if you ignore and remove Bible prophecy deliberately due to the fact that you don’t like it or you are under the deception of your church, you are almost beyond help!
One of the ways of examining or judging a church to see if you should get involved is this: What is their attitude to and place of Bible prophecy?
We don’t all need to agree on every little detail, but the major issues and milestones of prophecy, there must be agreement on.
This is the forerunner era of prophetic fulfilment. The great tragedy of the time is that very few churches include anything at all on prophecy. They are the blind leading the blind!
Too many, especially pastors, are too deeply entrenched in Babylon to change and many are too chicken to do so anyway! So they toe the line of denominationalism, or of the church fathers, or of the anti-Semite reformers and they remain trapped, powerless and blind. Of course they would never admit it. “We believe the Bible”, they proclaim, but as with most, its only the bits that suit them and support their beliefs.
Pastors if you do not teach Bible prophecy you are responsible for blinding your flock. You have stabbed them in their eyes! Prophecy is the eyes of the church. We are commanded to “know the time and season.” I remember the first time I read the Bible from cover to cover I was shocked. “Why is most of this foreign in the church”, I thought. “Why have I never heard one word of these things preached or taught?”
At this critical, dramatic juncture in world history, God is pouring out His knowledge more and more. He is revealing many things, previously unknown, especially in the area of prophecy. But this is also the time of growing deception and deep spiritual darkness
The TBN founder forbade their members from saying anything critical of Islam a few years back. Now his mascara-laden wife, the new head of the organisation, has taken it one deadly step further by forbidding members from preaching on eschatology.
To remain silent is in the face of evil implicates you as a participant. To say nothing is to speak! To do nothing is to act!
Very soon we will see many of the TBN group of churches go the wrong way in their new- found blindness. We will see many of them become anti-Israel, pro-homosexual and standing for Interfaith.
Turning against Israel has a spiritual root. It is all part of the giant “spirit of error”. It is essentially rejection of God’s choice.
Bible prophecy and Israel:
Bible prophecy outlines and speaks of the miracle of Israel and the Jewish people. It speaks of the blood-stained thread from Adam to Abraham, to Israel, to the Messiah, and to the Second Coming of Messiah.
If you remove all of this you are going to be in a world of confusion ruled by the opinions of man rooted in Satan.
You may have noticed the amazing quantity and frequency of mass-media bias, junk, hogwash and pure error about Israel on the go now. And people swallow the garbage.
You may have noticed that I’ve intentionally presented you with God’s plan for Israel in the last few editions. I’ve clearly laid out the origins of the conflict and the answer as revealed in dozens of prophecies.
The previous editions, “I stand with God’s word for Israel”, “The principles of war,” and “Deadly messages from antiquity” have a flow to them. They all deal with God’s supernatural plan and purposes for Israel in the past, present and into the future. If you have not done so, please read those editions, they are of major importance now.
Israel is the spine of prophecy and if the spine is out of place, the other skeletal bones will also be out. If Bible prophecy relating to Israel is out of place, your entire world will be disjointed! If the spine is in place, everything else is securely in its right place.
Make no mistake; we are now on the edge of the most dramatic times the world has ever seen. You had better know your stuff. You had better know spirits and how to identify and deal with them. These critical days will see many people swept into hell. We are the terminal generation!
Winston Churchill “Some people like the Jews and other do not. But no thoughtful man can deny the fact that they are, beyond doubt or question, the most formidable and most remarkable race which has appeared in the world.”
A distorted world-view:
With Bible prophecy and all of its implications removed you will have a distorted world view. You will see the world through your own eyes. You will not see all the dangers.
If you are in the light you are not in the darkness! Before you scream at me for stating the obvious – it is so far from the obvious, you have no idea!
If you are truly surrendered in brokenness and humility to the Spirit of the living God, you will see things His way. You will gain knowledge, understanding and wisdom and you will see wonderful things too magnificent to describe. Confusion will die and glorious clarity will spring to life.
You will be amazed that others can’t see the light or the darkness. You will wonder why they don’t see the devil lurking in the four corners of the world! As you grow in the wonderful things of God, you will see with clarity! Your eye-sight will become magnificently clear.
The Bible deepens with age. The Bible does not reveal its secrets to the casual enquirer or the curious!
The miracle of Bible prophecy:
Bible prophecy is one of the most important “tools” for proving the veracity of the Bible. It is one of the most powerful “tools” of evangelism today, simply because everyone wants to know what is in the future for them.
Past prophetic fulfilment is truly miraculous. Only our God who knows the end from the beginning could proclaim it in His word.
So, with this miracle in mind, if you remove it, you remove the supernatural element to prophecy and end up with your own blind, essentially dumb, stupid, worldly views and opinions of things. You are then simply as boring as a man-made brick.
What you must do:
Seek God and accept His salvation offered to each one as a free gift. The set your heart and soul to study and know God’s prophetic word. Align yourself with our Lord and His truth. Find some of the deeper teachers on prophecy and study them. The monumental book “Things to come” by Dwight Pentecost (Zondervan), is a good place to start.
All roads do not lead to Rome! All roads lead to judgement – The Bible tells me so! Bible prophecy spells out the glorious future for those who are His, and the terrible, disastrous eternity for those who reject God and His word.
The Bible gives purpose to living. There are many things in the Bible that you do need to understand, but there some things you dare not misunderstand!
Don’t mess with Bible prophecy! You are messing with God!
The Lion of the tribe of Judah:
Revelation 5:5 “Do not weep. Behold the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the root of David has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seals.”
Romans 11:12 “Consider both the goodness and severity of God.”
I took this picture in the beautiful Namib Desert, Namibia, in one of the numerous dead tree pans. I used a Hasselblad medium format camera. If you would like to see some more pictures of this incredible desert, click Here.
Isaiah 43:19 “Behold I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth, I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the deserts.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
