- The Kushner / Trump Deal of the Century has had its initial section released for discussion, dubbed “The Peace to Prosperity Plan.” This will be a workshop in Bahrain on June 25-26. It is aimed at raising international investment for the Palestinians. Little appetite for it so far.
- Hamas says: “No ceasefire with Israel.” Iran says: “We chose the path of resistance only.”
- Tensions in the Persian Gulf remain extremely high.
People seek affirmation and acceptance. They seek approval and assurance, looking for validation and value. But they seek it in the world and in their own selves (flesh or sin nature) and there they encounter the father of lies, telling them that they’re okay. It is the world and self that must die on the cross! So why go to those sentenced to death for their sin, for approval? (Galatians 2:20, 6:14)
People must decide on the inherent goodness of man or the inherent wickedness of the heart of man. If the latter, a saviour is needed. (Jeremiah 17:9)
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!
A most dramatic prophecy:
I really do expect many big prophetic things to break onto the world stage within days, weeks and perhaps a few months. Now is the time to be ready and stay spiritually tuned in!
Tread carefully when the warning trumpets are warming up and the warning bells are ringing. Today, I want to put before you a dramatic prophetic warning about to break onto the world scene. With so many ducks in row – wake-up time!
Today there is an explosion of interest in end-time things and the spirit of error is there to provide the deceived with more deception, and Spirit of truth is there to lead the genuinely humble into all truth.
If all these events which are happening were not recorded in the Bible, and someone recorded them now, they would look exactly like Bible prophecy! But the unsaved world simply does not have spiritual eyes and ears to see any of it, or know it. They are wandering blindly in confusion.
Have a careful look now at the following few verses, they are dramatic to say the least!
Isaiah 44:28, 45:1-3 “(The Lord) says to Cyrus, he is My shepherd, and shall perform all My pleasure, even saying to Jerusalem, you shall be built, and to the temple, ‘your foundation shall be laid.’ Thus says the Lord to His anointed, to Cyrus whose right hand I have held – to subdue nations before him and loose the armour of kings, to open before him the double doors, so that the gates will not shut...I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places...”
These few verses above, speak prophetically of: ●The status of Jerusalem. ●The beginning of the building of the third temple. ●Subduing nations, weakening or causing their submission. ●Conflict with surrounding nations, ●Keys to double-door access to Jerusalem. And ●Oil!
But there is more: “Double doors” represent strongly secured doors or access. The context here is Jerusalem. Revelation 3:7 speaks of the faithful church being given the “key of David” which opens and no one shuts.”
This “key of David” is a reference to Isaiah 22:20-22 where Eliakim becomes a political leader, with God’s favour on him. He is given the “key of David” to open to the “inhabitants of Jerusalem.”
The name “Eliakim” means “God will raise him up.”
Cyrus was a godless leader, but God used him for His purposes. Here we see both Cyrus and Eliakim being examples in type of President Trump.
Remember last time I said that the decree of Cyrus to rebuild the temple happened as the seventy-year Babylonian captivity ended. In terms of our analogy in type, that is now!
Deuteronomy 33:24 “Asher is most blessed of sons; let him be favoured by his brothers, and let him dip his foot in oil.”
The land of the Hebrew tribe of Asher is foot-shaped, right in the north of Israel bordering the coastline, which is exactly where the huge, recently discovered “Leviathan” oil and gas fields are, which are already in operation. (“Asher” means: Blessed.)
There was also a recent large oil discovery in the Negev Desert. Israel is already supplying oil and gas to Europe and other neighbours. Iran and Russia do not like this one little bit.
Some 30% (18.5 million b/d) of the world’s oil passes through The Straits of Hormuz, a chokepoint in the Persian Gulf, controlled by Iran, on its way to the west.
This single spot has the potential to cripple the world’s economy if its life-blood, oil, is stopped. Iran knows this and has threatened to close the Straits before. But now so many other things are all lining up and cornering Iran like a rabid dog.
Bear in mind that Iran has just repeated its threat to attack Israel if the US attacks it. That’s like going to your next door neighbour on the right and punching him out because your neighbour on the left got on your nerves!
Actually, it’s all about dancing, deceiving, demons and devils in Iran’s head.
It is the modern Cyrus who will get all these things going. And yes, there is enough biblical evidence to identify President Trump as that man.
Israeli leader Netanyahu has compared King Cyrus to President Trump. Numerous Bible prophecy buffs have done the same. This is all analogy, type and shadow in operation, which I agree with here.
There is a rule in applying type to a biblical situation. Never take the analogy too far. It may be only certain aspects of the biblical source that apply in type.
Most importantly it is must have the leading and revealing of the Spirit of God behind it.
Bear in mind that those outside of the leading of the Spirit, or who have their own agendas, generally see nothing in the types and often resist them.
So, let’s see what we have:
We have President Trump’s backing, and securing of Jerusalem as belonging to Israel. This applies to Golan too. We will soon have the laying of the foundation of the temple. That is still to come. We have the subduing of nations through agreement like with Saudi Arabia and war coming with others like Iran. And we have the oil issue. We have the key to Jerusalem’s double doors being kept open.
This current prophetic scenario includes: ●Iran resumption of its nuclear weapons program, which is underway again. ●Iran’s repeated hatred for Israel, and threats against her. ●Iran’s crashing economy and currency, ●Iran’s attack on four ships (so far) in the Persian Gulf and its threat to use the closure of the Straits of Hormuz as a weapon against the world economy. ●A new 10-nation military confederacy in Europe has just been put together by Macron of France. ●Syria continues to sizzle ahead of its total destruction.
The law of war is not enshrined in the courts of the UN, the World Court, the EU, the UK, the US or Israel or any other nation. It is enshrined in the word of God. “The Lord of hosts” is used hundreds of times in the Bible. “Hosts” is the word for armies – the armies of our Lord.
The purpose for prophesied war and all these end-time upheavals is to bring in true world peace, righteousness and glory!!
Beware - many of these things will be coming with sudden shock.
Edition 266. July 1st 2015
Prophecy from above, prophecy from below:
Prophecy from above, prophecy from below:
►This is a very important edition!
James 3:15-17 (Amp) “This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual sensual, demonic.”
I’m using this verse above as our title verses because it lends itself well to the play on words. As there is wisdom from above and wisdom from below, so there is biblical prophecy from above and “prophecy” from below, or the world and its god Satan.
Bible prophecy has numerous unique aspects to it, including its plot of world history, the people of God and the unsaved world.
We can trust it and rely on it.
The world and its fallen masses also have “prophecies” that at the end of the day, amount to wishful thinking. They contradict the prophecies of the Bible totally.
The world follows their gods blindly and they hear its voices clearly. We as believers follow our God knowingly and wisely and we know His voice.
Prophecy from above:
Psalm 119:140 “Your word is very pure, therefore Your servant loves it.”
Proverbs 30:5 “Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him.”
Psalm 12:6-7 “The words of the Lord are pure words, like silver tried in a furnace of the earth, purified seven times. You shall keep them O Lord; You shall preserve them from this generation forever.”
Psalm 18:30 “As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.”
Prophecy from above (of the Bible) is unique in a number of ways. ●It has a 100% fulfilment record. ●It is only Bible prophecy that plots the entire course of world history from beginning to end. ●It is only Bible prophecy that predicts the entire miraculous journey of the Jews to their final salvation. Included are hundreds of prophecies on the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem. ●It is only Bible prophecy that speaks of you personally and your eternal destination. ●Bible prophecy is of great value and is most precious.
Isaiah 46:9-10 “Remember the former things of old, for I am God and there is no other; I am God and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure.”
Prophecy from below -or the world:
The “prophecies” of the world are the great big belief systems that the unsaved world universally adheres to.
They are all the wishful hopes and promises that they make to each other. They are all the results of academic thinking and enterprise to make the world a better place.
These “prophecies” are the promises of the world’s politicians, scientists, inventors, and great thinkers.
The “prophecies” from below obviously fly directly in the face of the prophecies of the word of God. They exclude God. They favour universality and the collective “speak” and morality of the world.
The world’s “prophecies” are inoffensive to the world, accommodating multitudes of opinions and beliefs.
The world’s “prophecies” are impure, full of pure humanism, and the efforts of fallen man. They are the world’s attempt to better themselves, based on democracy, human rights and everything outside of the word of God.
Here are a few examples:
●A world-prophecy is this: You’re okay because you fit in with everyone. Just look at everyone else. They all believe and do the same things therefore you must be okay, because you’re one of the crowd.
●A world prophecy is this: There is no eternal judgement coming. God is love and would never send anyone to hell because that’s not love.
●A world prophecy is this: Because you’re essentially good, with good motivations and you’re essentially loving, giving and caring, you’re okay. If there is a God He will save you based on all your good works. (This is actually the belief of the majority.)
●A world prophecy is this: Because you were infant-sprinkled (baptised) as a little child and go to church every once in a while – you’re okay.
●A world prophecy is this: The world, over time will get better and better, because people are so clever they know how to fix the world.
●A world prophecy is this: The morality of the world is okay because it’s what the majority wants.
And of course there are thousands more.
The biggest failure of democracy – the biggest victory ever!
The greatest failure of democracy ever was the choice given to the masses at the trial of our Lord and Saviour, Yeshua. Pilate asked the people who they wanted released to them. With a universal decision and voice, they all said, “No, not Yeshua, give us Barabbas!” (John 18:40). Then Pilate asked, “What must I do with this innocent man (Yeshua)?” and the whole crowd said – “Crucify him.”
This was perhaps the greatest example of a failed democratic vote. But as we know, it led to the greatest victory ever which was the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and the payment for sin in wonderful salvation.
Public opinion is organised mass delusion. People have succumbed to the devils political propaganda. The collective, common belief is now political correctness. Mass thinking is the result of pure brainwashing.
The reality of the godless is a short-lived futile fantasy. Their freedom is in fact a prison of their own making.
Isaiah 59:14 “...I saw the truth cast down in street.”
Now, let’s return to the court of Pilate.
A Passover custom was to release one prisoner. We know the story. The crowd cried for Barabbas to be released. The name Barabbas in the original (Strong’s G 912) means “Son of the father or master.”
But what very few people know is that the first name of Barabbas, the son of his father, was Jesus!
Barabbas was an imprisoned leader of a rebellion, a thief and murderer. Interestingly, some original manuscripts include his full name, Jesus Barabbas! Tradition claims that his full name was left out of the King James Version (which is full of errors) in honour of the real Jesus. If you want to check this name, click HERE.
But more than this, it is Satan, the ultimate rebel, whom the Bible calls the “thief and the murderer”!
Be thankful though, that it was Barabbas that went free and not our Lord. You see, you don’t even know what your name is. Your name is Barabbas. You are him! If our Lord wasn’t executed, you and I would have no saviour who could save! We are all Barabbas, full of sin, and we go free thanks to the true and innocent Saviour of the world who was accused and crucified in our place.
Yeshua the Son of His Father was an innocent man and stood before Pilate and the world, about to be murdered, while Jesus Barabbas, the murderer, son of his father, Satan, was set free.
Do you see it? Jesus Barabbas is the son of his father the devil. He is one of the great types of the antichrist to come.
It is of great importance to note the difference between the two. On the one hand we have Jesus, the son of his father and on the other we have Jesus, the Son of His Father. The former is a Jesus without a cross!! The latter is a Jesus with a cross.
If we embrace our Messiah with a cross we will be forever separated from the world and its ways. If we embrace the messiah without a cross, we will remain forever joined to, and in unity with the world and its ways awaiting judgement.
One Messiah saves empowers and cleanses the other can’t save, he curses and dooms. One sets truly free, the other imprisons in camouflaged freedom. One gives spiritual insight, knowledge, understanding and wisdom. The other blinds you to God, deludes you and makes you spiritually ignorant. One is pure, holy and righteous; the other leaves you unclean and full of evil.
Jesus Barabbas is exactly what the Bible calls “another Jesus.” Galatians 1:8 “Even if we or an angel from heaven preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you let him be accursed.” (2 Corinthians 11:4)
You can choose Jesus, Son of His Father, King of the Jews, or Jesus Barabbas, king of murderers and rebellion. Be warned, if you do not choose the right king, by default you have already chosen the other.
It wasn’t Pilate who released Barabbas; it was the crowd’s choice. They yelled “give us Barabbas”. The world got what they wanted. The world today is trying desperately to get rid of the true Jesus again, so that they can accept the rebel murderer-messiah again – the one with no values, morals or virtues!
The cry is not only “give us Barabbas” but “crucify the Messiah”. As you chose one you reject and kill the other.
►Here’s a glorious sideline snippet: The original languages of the Bible were alpha-numeric. Each letter has a number value, so you can simply add up the numeric value of a word. In the Bible, numbers have meanings. For example 1=unity, 2=division, 3=trinity, 4=world, 5=grace, 6=man under sin, seven = perfection, 8=resurrection and so on. The number 13 means rebellion.
Do you know that the numeric value for every single enemy of God in the Bible adds up to a multiple of 13? Do you know that every single title and name for our Lord adds up to a multiple of 8 except for one? Yes there is one title for our Lord that adds up to a multiple of 13! It is the title that was nailed to the cross above His head! It was on the cross that He became our sin and rebellion!
The characteristics of Jesus Barabbas:
“Give us Barabbas!” (Painting by James Tissot- 1836)
The soon coming Jesus Barabbas will not set you free. He went free but if you follow the new Barabbas, he will lead you right into hell.
He represents the world’s salvation, which is salvation without a cross. He was full of violence murder and rebellion (terrorism).
In Matthew 27:16 Barabbas is described as “notorious” or “notable”. The world will instantly fall in love with this new notable Jesus, the son of his father. They will be falling headlong for the devil himself in disguise – the antichrist!
He will prophesy peace and safety, love and truth. He will promise world peace and harmony on a grand scale, but he will bring the wrath of God upon himself and all his followers.
Calling for our Lord to be crucified, the crowd said, “Let His blood be upon us and our children and our children’s children.” That tragic self-imposed curse remains on the Jews today. By default, it extends to the whole unsaved world. It came by their own choice!
When you reject the free gift of true love – the salvation of our Lord, you are also saying, “Let His blood be upon us and our children!” You are cursing yourself!
The crowd believed they were doing God a service by getting rid of this Messiah character. Faced with same choice again, what will you do? Will you rush to give yourself to the antichrist? Or will you sit back and wash your hands of the situation? Pre-tribbers need not be concerned!
Don’t do it – you are about to choose Jesus Barabbas again!
The greatest prophecy of the world is that you can save yourself. Yes you can, you can do it. Just get into positive thinking, self motivation. Listen to the world’s disciples preaching nice inoffensive, self-motivational sermons one after the other and you will be fine.
You don’t need that offensive, cruel, cross. You don’t need to take up your own cross, an instrument of death. You don’t need to “hate your life in the world”. Just be happy and you’ll be okay. Just follow the crowd; after all, the crowd is so clever! Jesus has done all the dying, no more dying needed!
The world will soon face a similar tragic situation, and again they will choose Jesus Barabbas – the antichrist! The coming of the antichrist will be accompanied with numerous powerful supernatural signs, which will deceive the masses. (2 Thessalonians 2:9-11)
It’s not so much that they choose the counterfeit but that they hate the true Messiah, the one that condemns homosexuality, abortion and all sin because true love is holy and righteous.
Another of the huge, great big “prophetic” lies of the world is that you can be “as God”. If ever there is anything that appeals to pride this is it.
Genesis 3:4-5 “The serpent said to the woman, you shall not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
The tragedy of this lie is that in going your own way independent of God, your eyes will not be opened! In fact they will be closed and you will not even see that you are on the wrong road, heading to hell. “God will send you strong delusion so that you will believe the lie.” (2 Thessalonians 2:11).
Today the force and power behind collective, universal rejection of God’s word and ways is so very powerful. It is led and spearheaded by Satan’s prime tool, the mass-media. You are in grave danger without the full spiritual compliment of supernatural gifts in these days.
►►Revelation 17:13-14 “These (nations) are of one mind and they will give their power and authority to the beast. These will make war with the Lamb and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is the Lord of lords and the King of kings and those who are with Him are called chosen and faithful.”
How easy it is to make war with a lamb. You can kill it with one shot! But in the verse above we see a great surprise coming. This Lamb, Jesus, the Son of His Father will overcome them all!
But just look at the great universal deception! All the nations willingly give their power and authority to the antichrist!
Do you know how stupid it is to choose the losing side, when you know ahead of time that they are going to lose? Just think about for a while!
Jesus is one of the masks that Satan, the great deceiver wears!
The tragic “prophecy” of the homosexual world:
Homosexuals believe their “prophecy” that they’re okay and will not be judged. After all, Christians keep telling them that God loves them.
The universal flag of the homosexual is called the rainbow flag because it displays the colours of the rainbow. The rainbow first appeared after the judgement of God on the evils of the then world which included rampant homosexuality.
The rainbow is the promise of God that He will never judge the whole world again with water. That does not mean He will not judge the world again! The rainbow IS a sign and proof of judgement! The rainbow says “God judges sin.”
The world’s homosexuals are flying the flag which proclaims their own judgement.
By the way they recently changed their flag to include only six colours instead of seven. But they still call it the rainbow flag. Six, is that fateful number of man under sin.
The LGBT flag has six colours with indigo being removed. Some have remarked that INDIGO also spells “GOD IN I”.
And another thing: A central key tenant of the homosexual movement is pride. Do you know that the first sin of the universe long before the creation of the world was pride? Do you know that the second sin of the universe was pride? The former was at the fall of Lucifer, and the latter at the fall of Adam! Do you know that God hates pride? (Proverbs 6:16).
And they think they’re all going to be okay because the Christians tell them God loves them!
By the way, Christian; why single out homosexuals and tell them God loves them but hates their sin. What about the heterosexual? Do you see your problem? You are you showing particular partiality to one group.
To tell someone that God loves them when discipline and correction is needed is to participate in damning that person’s soul.
The world has a religion:
Because the world system has a god it has a religion. (2 Corinthians 4:4)
The world’s religion has no cross of sacrifice for sins. It is forever trapped in its sin and unable to get out – ever. The world’s religion includes a mix of all religions including the Christian religion. If you have not realised it yet, true Biblical Christianity is not a religion, but a relationship which you can only be born into through blood, faith and grace. All religions are based on law and works.
The very essence of the world’s religions is “You can do it.” They operate in the power of self-effort. Their objectives are worldly and material. They’re riddled with demonic spirits.
The world’s Christian religion believes in and loves Jesus but denies the Father / Son relationship and that Yeshua is God. This is the spirit of antichrist. The spirit of antichrist arises in direct association with the church.
Love is the big thing in the world’s Christian church, but it is counterfeit love. It is love that doesn’t interfere with their lifestyles. It is love that costs nothing. It is love with no Spirit, no judgement, no correction or discipline, no power, no cleansing of the cross.
Their love is all encompassing and accommodating. It is not the love of God as described in the Bible. The Bible describes this worldly form of love as “hatred”. (Look it up.)
It is not love that will make you right with God or save you, but love of the truth and the application of it that will save you and secure you in Him in these days.
One of the world’s major central “prophecies” is that peace will come to the Middle East and the world, once Israel and Jerusalem are divided. We know very well that Islam does not want a divided Israel. They want all of it, with the Jews destroyed.
Jeremiah 30:3-5 “’Behold, the days are coming’, says the Lord that I will bring back My people, Israel and Judah, and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers...We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear and not of peace...”
As revealed in the verse above and many others, our Lord will bring back the Jews to their land and it will not be in peace. It will be in enormous conflict and war.
The true prophecies of the Bible show that peace will come to the Middle East when the Prince of peace returns to an undivided Israel and Jerusalem, with Islam annihilated.
The big take-aways:
The big take-away is that all the “prophecies” of the world will fail – every one of them!
All the prophecies of the Bible will come to pass – every one of them!
The big take-away from this edition is the fact that the world’s prophecies of love and peace are lies. They’re a smokescreen to hide Satan and his demons from you.
The big take-away is that any form of religion without the centrality of the cross is a dangerous counterfeit and is about to rise in new spiritual power and strength...that of the devil himself.
Bible prophecy is the anchor of your soul. It is unique, pure, tested and true. It continues to be fulfilled completely accurately. Do you want to gamble against those odds?
The prophecies of the Bible are true, holy, pure and right.
I took this picture from the side of a mountain looking over the Savuti Channel, between the Okavango and Chobe in big game country, Botswana. Shortly after this, the river disappeared never to appear again. It was due to seismic activity.
