- US is to impose sanctions on Turkey for their action in Syria. This as the Kurds 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.
- Lightning strikes mosque on the Temple Mount as The Feast of Tabernacles gets underway. (BIN 16th October)

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!
The amazing feast season:
We come now to the end of the feast season for this year, with the last of the seven feasts Tabernacles (Sukkoth) beginning on Sunday 13th October.
This report is an overview of the seven feasts, and what is of major importance, and what it all points to in the near future, prophetically.
The seven feasts contain the four spring feasts and the three fall feats, with the Feast of Pentecost in the middle.
The Spring Feasts are Passover (the cross), Unleavened bread (holiness), First fruits (resurrection) and Pentecost (the church age). These four feasts occur in quick succession because the historic events of the cross through to resurrection and the coming of the Holy Spirit occurred in quick succession. (Keep that in mind)
The Fall Feasts are Rosh Hashanah (Trumpets.) Yom Kippur (Atonement), Sukkoth (Tabernacles.) These three fall feasts have not yet had their prophetic fulfilment. They also occur in quick succession of each other.
Rosh Hashanah begins the time period known as the “days of awe,” which refers to the solemn period of introspection, judgement and new beginnings.
Yom Kippur occurs eight days after Rosh Hashanah. It symbolises divine judgement and forgiveness, so that the individual may be cleansed of sin. In fact, in practice it is a day of fasting. It is the most solemn of the feasts of the Lord.
The Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkoth), occurs five days after Yom Kippur. This feast commemorates the historic original Exodus from Egypt into the wilderness. Prophetically it points to the coming spiritual exodus of the Jews from the Egypt, which is the world – to their Messiah and their eternal dwelling with Him. Temporary shelters are built symbolising Israel’s temporary dwelling in the wilderness on the way to The Promised Land and prophetically to the Millennium.
Many people especially the Catholics, reject the feasts and many change the order in violation of Leviticus 23:4 (Amp) “These are the set feasts or appointed seasons of the Lord, holy convocations you shall proclaim at their stated times.”
The feasts are permanently “set” in the times God has stated for them.
Christians do not need to celebrate the feasts in a legalistic manner, but we must at least identify with them and know well the major, important messages contained in them. (It is a blessing to celebrate them). You may not disregard their prophetic importance or change the order.
The feasts are not for the Jews only. The Bible calls them the Feasts of the Lord. But think about this: If you, as many do, say that the feasts are for the Jews only, then you have to say that the events of the cross are for the Jews only! Sorry Reverend Dumbish, you can’t cherry pick what suits you.
Amazing patterns in the Feasts:
There are many who teach that the rapture of the church will happen on one of days of Pentecost, because of certain associations of the rapture with Pentecost. They are all wrong.
Before we go any further please have a very good look at this diagram above.
I have pointed out before that Pentecost is a trumpet-less feast. The final three feasts are all associated with trumpets. The rapture is associated with trumpets. The rapture can only be on a Feast of Trumpets. There are many other reasons. But consider this:
I have mentioned the time periods between the feasts (diagram), for a good reason.
The time period between the first feast, Passover (the cross) and Pentecost (The church age), is very short. Then from the Feast of Pentecost to the next one, Rosh Hashanah (trumpets) is a long four months. That time period between the spring feasts and the fall feasts is called, “The long hot summer.” We are right now at the very end of the long hot summer, which ends with Rosh Hashanah (trumpets) and the final two in quick succession.
The reason for the long hot summer is because the church age is a long period of time compared to the time intervals between the other events, signified by feasts.
Do you see why the rapture can’t occur on a Feast of Pentecost? No it can’t - it just doesn't fit! The Feast of Pentecost was fulfilled by the start of the church age. It has been prophetically fulfilled. We are now at the very end of the long hot summer! There is no such thing as a feast having two prophetic fulfilments.
If the rapture has to happen on a Feast of Pentecost that would mean that the previous feast, Firstfruits, would have been fulfilled by the start of the church age! That would throw everything out of sync and make them all nonsensical.
It is most important to understand that the first four feasts, Passover to Pentecost were fulfilled by the events of the cross and the coming of the Holy Spirit. In terms of prophetic fulfilment these four feasts were and are for the born-again church exclusively.
Now as we come to the final three feasts a great, dramatic switch takes place. The coming fulfilment of these final, fall feasts are fulfilled by Israel and are for Israel.
Rosh Hashanah starts the tribulation; Yom Kippur will be fulfilled by the judgment of the wrath of God, and Sukkoth by the end of the tribulation, Second Coming and Millennium.
The church is not awaiting the tribulation, judgment on sin. That’s a done deal – at the cross. The church is not awaiting the tribulation and the wrath of God. The church is not awaiting the Second Coming. We will be returning with our Lord at that time. That’s all a done deal through the cross!
So the application and fulfilment of the fall feasts can only relate to Israel in the tribulation. The first four feasts are within the “mystery” that is the church and the three final feasts are outside of the mystery which is the church.
This is one of many reasons why Rosh Hashanah has to see the removal of the church, ending the church age and starting the tribulation.
This Rosh Hashanah went by uneventfully, but not Yom Kippur, which is also the anniversary of the Yom Kippur War of 1967 in which Jerusalem was restored to Jewish control. Now on this Yom Kippur, we saw the actual invasion of northern Syria by Turkey begin – on the very day! This will, no doubt lead to the Isaiah 17 war and other prophesied wars into which Israel will be dragged in.
Do you see how amazing this is? Do you see how accurately and well the whole gigantic story is spelt out and plotted? How accurate the Bible is.
And the Catholics and their half-baked masses get rid of the feasts and replace them with the unholy, occult, pagan, satanic, pig-eating feats of Easter and Christmas, which have no prophetic message at all.
Bear in mind that Bible calls the Feasts of the Lord “Holy convocations!” Pagan practices that are world-based, originating in Babylon are all cursed!
Godly wisdom, like gold is the purest, oldest form of genuine wealth there is. It is an immense store of value that is indestructible. It pays great dividends! Follow those who have it and beware of those with a handful of glittering fool’s gold.
►There is a very interesting biblical alignment between these seven feasts and the seven mysteries of the Bible, which I’ll touch on in the new edition.
Edition 272. August 12th 2015
Do you see it, do you hear it?
Do you see it do you hear it?
There are always two conflicting words out there. The word of the living God has been delivered and is always alive now through His Spirit. It’s always available to those who meet the conditions. The word of the god of this world, Satan is also always out there and available, no conditions needed!
Which word do you hear? Who do you see at work in these days of unfolding prophecy?
There’s a reason why people see and hear only one.
The unsaved automatically hear the word of their god and can’t hear the word of the living God.
Believer, try as you may, you can’t know God, see Him, understand Him without certain conditions being met. Oh yes you can know general things about Him, but that deep sustaining revelation only comes to the few!
You can scream the odds against that, but the better thing to do is become one of the few!
First of all let me clear up the one thing that rattles the cages of many. Yes salvation is free, but the salvation of the soul is not!
It is vitally, critically important to know, hear and see the Spirit of God at work today....more so than ever before.
Global deception is here already.
It is impossible for many people to see or hear the things of God in these days because they have been twice blinded.
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." (The context of this verse relates to false worship and idolatry.)
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."
Talk about being blinded! Here we have people whom God has blinded for many reasons. They have also been blinded by Satan from seeing the road to salvation.
Let’s dig a bit deeper:
There are far too many verses dealing with spiritual blindness and the causes to list here. So what I’ve done for you benefit, is list just a few of these verses. For the sake of space, I’m not writing them out. Just hover your mouse over them to see the full verses.
I’ve then compiled one big profound statement extracted from the verses.
Exodus 23:1-2 , Exodus 23:32-33, Job 38:15, Jeremiah 1:16, Jeremiah 2:21, Jeremiah 6:10, Jeremiah 6:17-19, Jeremiah 8:9, 2, Jeremiah 13:15-16, Chronicles 36: 15-16, Zechariah 7:12-13, Romans 1:26-28, Romans 2:8, Isaiah 1:15, Isaiah 28:2, Isaiah 44:18, Isaiah 57:20-21, Isaiah 59:2, Isaiah 59:8.
A most powerful compilation from these verses:
If you forsake God or His word, or His messengers, you will be full of wickedness, sin and evil. If you harden your heart and turn a deaf ear to our Lord, you will become dark and degenerate and God will not hear you. You will become an unrighteous witness. If you embrace idolatry and exchange the truth of God for the lies of the world, both God and Satan will blind your eyes and minds. If you are self-seeking, with no fear of God in you, your future is terror, disaster and destruction. If you are disobedient to the truth, and are lacking in faith and do not endure, you will go down the crooked path with no light, no peace, stumbling along and becoming ensnared by sin and unrighteousness.
I’ve compiled the answer to these problems from other verses:
It is Godly sorrow that leads to repentance. It is the wilful choosing of the fear of the Lord that draws Him to you and opens the eyes of your understanding and comprehension of the scriptures. It is walking in the beauty of holiness that empowers you, giving you endurance. It is being separate from sin and the ways of the world that endears you to our Lord and causes you to be fruitful. It is walking in humility before God that causes His grace to fall on you. Being upright opens to you the secret council of God.
The importance of seeing, knowing and hearing God’s word on Israel:
The entire issue surrounding Israel, Jerusalem and the Jewish people is not only about them. It is about you! You will rise or fall depending on what you see now! The fence of division is rising higher and higher and you will fall one side or the other. You spiritual future depends on what you see now!
Great, powerful spiritual forces are at work and we can’t see them. The entire issue is spiritual first and physical second. Leaders of demon forces – generals so to speak, are at work in the unseen realm.
God has revealed his plans clearly for all to see in His word and made them alive by His Spirit.
We are right on the doorstep of the Middle East exploding:
Do you know how wrong the world is and its church? Do you know how ignorant most people are on this subject?
Just take the following word meaning as an example!
The word ‘Palestinian’ in Hebrew is “Plishtim” which means “Occupier” or “thief”! The name in Greek is the word “Peleshet” and means “migrant invader”.
Neither the original Philistines nor the modern Palestinians were born in the land of Israel.
If you listen to the mass media and their church, you would have thought that Israel is the “occupier” and “thieves of Palestinian land”!
Do you see it? The Bible proclaims the exact opposite!
The two-state solution is another perfect example of a massive delusion, contradicting God to His face! (Joel 3:2).
Goliath of Gath:
Goliath of the city of Gath is believed to be a myth just like Noah and his Ark according to many, or should we say most! Even many Christians see Bible stories like this as allegorical. The story is found in 1 Samuel 17:4-23.
A week ago, a giant gate was unearthed at the recently discovered remnants of the city of Gath, the home of Goliath and numerous other giants of the day. The archaeological discover is important because it goes to proving that the city did exist and it was the home of giants.
The meaning of name Goliath (Gala) is found in Strong’s H1555. It means “splendour”. Some Lexicons list the meaning as “to remove”.
Goliath in his splendour tried to remove David and the children of Israel. We know the story: David picked up five stones (five is the number of grace.) One of those five stones backed by the grace of God brought down the giant.
Gath was a Philistine city. It was a city of giants. Gath comes from the root word “Gat” meaning “winepress”. (Strong’s H1661) ”. This has Armageddon connotations!
1 Chronicles 20:6-8 reveals that another giant of the city of Gath who had 12 fingers and 12 toes defied Israel. Jonathan, the son of Shimea David’s brother killed him.
Goliath and the giants of Gath were Philistines. The name Palestinian is a transliteration of the word Philistinos. The Philistines were undoubtedly Arabs. Today it would be no injustice to align the Philistines with today’s Arab Palestinians.
The Bible also identifies Goliath the fateful number 666. He was six cubits tall, had six pieces of armour and his sword weighed six hundred shekels of silver. In contrast, the believer has seven items of spiritual armour. Seven is the number of perfection.
Muslims believe 666 to be a holy number. In fact there’s much linking the Quran and Allah to 666.
Why is this important now?
The “winepress” has just been discovered! The gate to Gath has risen from the dust. Goliath is arising again, linked with 666 again. The giant of world opinion against diminutive David (Israel) is getting louder and louder, fuelled by Mr. 666.
David will again destroy Goliath in these last days. Israel backed by God’s plan will finally bring down the Palestinians backed by their false god. It’s all about to explode onto the world stage now.
Isaiah 34:5 “For My sword shall be bathed in heaven; indeed it shall come down on Edom, (original home of most Palestinians) and on the people of My curse for judgement.”
The world has learnt nothing from the story of David and Goliath. The world and its church are totally blind to it all even though they are the real “giants” ready to attack again. The “giants” of world opinion, the giant size of the Arab nations surrounding Israel and all the giant enemies of Israel are doomed. It’s always been that way!
David represents Israel, but also our Messiah, while Goliath and the Philistines represent the Palestinians backed by the whole world. Goliath also represents the world in all its proud glory and its blind rebellion to God.
Yes, the stone of David’s sling will again bring down giant opposition to Israel. But another stone will soon bring down all the kingdoms of this world!
Daniel 2:31 speaks of the beauty of Nebuchadnezzar’s giant image / statue. It says it that this great image was full of “splendour”. Do you see the parallels with Goliath?
The image of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream represents the empires of the world through the ages. A stone, just like with Goliath, brings it down. This stone is none other than our Lord at His return!
Nebuchadnezzar’s statue represents the destruction of the world at the Second Advent of our great Jewish Messiah, while Goliath represents the destruction of the Arab world coming against Israel.
David represents Israel today while Nebuchadnezzar’s giant represents the whole word. David’s stone represents the will, word and plan of God, while the stone destroying Nebuchadnezzar’s giant is our Lord and saviour at the Second Advent – no one will escape.
The odds of the unsaved world escaping eternal destruction and judgment are zero. The odds of the Palestinians overthrowing God’s word are zero. But Israel will very soon make its biggest mistake ever, although it will be short-lived.
Tragically, the world backed by its god will soon force or trick Israel to make a fateful covenant with the one who will be revealed as the antichrist in the process!
Look at what God says about making covenants against His will.
Exodus 23:32-33 “You shall make no covenant with them, or with their gods. They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against Me. If you serve their gods, it will surely be a snare to you.”
Exodus 34:11-14 “Observe what I command you this day. Behold I am driving out from before you the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite. Take heed to yourself, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you are going, lest it be a snare in your midst. You shall destroy their alters, break their sacred pillars and cut down their wooden images, for you shall worship no other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous is a jealous God.”
God is about to turn up the heat:
This time period is characterised by the final death throes of Satan in his conflict with the living God. It is a time when this great battle, invisible to us, manifests all around us in the world.
It is a time of mass confusion, and mass falling away of believers. It is also a time of great victory for many believers and the mass salvation of Jews and Gentiles.
It is the time of Bible prophecy unfolding and escalating like never before. It is a time of war and destruction as the worldwide call for peace grows stronger. It is the time of stress, desperation and despair in the lives of many.
What if the world is wrong?
What if the word of the world is wrong and God’s word is right?
That little statement has enormous implications for most people in this world today. They have been led astray and made slaves of god of the world and they can’t even see it!
What if the world led by its god Satan is wrong? Many think that there’s safety in numbers. They think that the world must be right, because they have the majority in their camp! What if this assumption is wrong? What if you have been on the wrong road all along and God is right?
What a frightening thought!
As a believer you can chose to hate your life in the world or hate the life God has laid out for you.
If all your life you have believed that 2+2=5 because someone told you so, imagine the shock of discovering that 2+2=4! Although you would feel like an idiot when you actually see it, this is nothing compared to the shock that many will have when they discover that God and His word was absolutely right all along and your entire life’s belief system and journey has been wrong.
You will discover that truth is truth. Everyone will. There is no greater truth than that! It all depends when you discover it. If it is one second after you step into eternity, it is too late. If it is one second before you die and you manage to call on our Lord in repentance, you will be very lucky indeed.
It’s actually quite humiliating discovering that you have been wrong on something that you were very sure you were right about. Most people have thrown their lives away.
►So what are some of the big things the world is wrong about? They are the big things the Bible is clear and strong on. Homosexuality is wrong, condemned and judged in both the Old and New Covenants. Abortion is murder according to the Bible. The abolition of the death penalty is wrong. Failure to physically discipline young children is wrong. Appeasement of the Palestinians is wrong. The Two-State solution is wrong.
The world’s course / agenda is a world of peace, but without sin removed.
To create world unity and peace the world’s way, you must remove judgement, severity, separation, restraint, holiness and the like so that it can all unify with sin, evil, error and all that is of the god of the world.
There are two types of unity. One is unity with God, His word and ways of love, holiness and purity. The other is unity with man and his word and ways of love, sin and evil. One is heaven bound the other is hell bound.
People will always look for the cheap way to God, the easy way with no price to pay. They never find or enter the depths of experience with our Lord and are vulnerable to falling away or backsliding as a result. In these days you need some depth of root.
God’s word contains everything that we need in life. It defines holiness, sin, evil error, truth, and instructions in righteousness. It includes within its pages the victory of all victories, the cross and its power. If you cast down or water down God’s word these are the things that you will battle with.
The world church’s Bible is nearly the same as God’s Bible. It has all the verses on love, unity, peace, forgiveness, tolerance and mercy. But it has all the verses on correction, severity, judgement, discipline and separation removed.
If you change or water down any doctrine of Messiah, what happens is that you will have to remove many other verses or at least ignore them, because so much of God’s word is inter-connected. What will also happen is you will have to add the word of the god of the world in its place!
The world’s word has a powerful unseen but evil authority behind it.
The world church’s Bible enshrines the word of CNN, BBC, Sky, NBC, ABC, Hollywood, entertainers, authors, academics and educated intellectuals, the opinions of housewives sitting around a restaurant table, the opinions of work friends and neighbours. In fact the world’s Bible includes the opinions of everyone outside of true Spirit-led biblical Christianity.
The world church’s Bible has no end-time prophecy in it because it is world-now, focused.
The world church’s Bible allows undisciplined children to rule the roost at home. It tolerates and even encourages Jezebel wives and daughters.
A tragic testimony:
A friend of mine whom I’ve known for many years always appeared to be a strong a believer. After her marriage fell apart, her spiritual life also began to shake. Suddenly, out of the blue, she started questioning even the Bible’s basics.
On the brink of suicide she went to see a secular psychologist. By now she had forsaken much of God’s word and council as she stepped onto a slippery slope. Things went from bad to worse quickly. She then started talking about metaphysics and other practises of spirit strange spirits. Right now she is a total wreck.
Coming great repentance:
For many it will all be too late and for many they will carry on motivated, empowered and led by Satan himself, headlong into conflict with God.
But many people, in fact great masses, will soon turn in repentance to our Lord. What is it that causes people to repent? It is the goodness of God, but it also judgment and shaking of everything once secure.
We don’t know if the goodness of God or the severity of God will cause someone to repent. So what’s the best option? Present both!
Psalm 145:18 “The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth.”
Trying to prove other wrong and yourself right seldom works, but when people see and understand truth, that is what gets them!
I created this picture from one of my originals taken in Botswana, in honour of the rhino, currently on the brink of extinction thanks to the psychopathic hunters and savage poachers. They are being slaughtered at one every eight hours.
Shalom and grow in grace!
