- Due to the fast changing prophetic news environment, check back here for any new or urgent updates that are important.
- The event at the Washington Mall in front of Capitol Hill, by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn called “The Return” was a brilliant all day call to world, national and personal repentance for the sins of abortion, homosexuality and others. It was one of the largest ever Christian events, streamed worldwide and watched by many hundreds of millions. What a truly amazing, powerful event! You can watch the 12 hour event HERE
- The US moves to re-impose sanctions on Iran against the wishes of the UN and EU.
- The Arab nations lining up for normalisation deals with Israel are all enemies of Iran. Could this be the spark that lights the fuse? Hmmm!
- Various Arab nations line up to make peace deals with Israel. Interestingly they are not nations mentioned in the war of Ezekiel 38 & 39. (Neither are the Abrahamic Accord two, or Egypt and Jordan, who have existing peace deals with Israel.) The alignment forming divides between Iran’s foes and friends – right in line with Gog and Magog!
- Egypt and UAE push to be “pillars of stability” in Middle East, as Egypt signs new gas deal with Israel.
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose of this report is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah.
25th August 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Accords make them mad!
The Abrahamic Accord recently signed at the White House, and those upcoming are NOT the Daniel 9:27 peace covenant. They are no covenant at all and make no reference to a temple, the land or Jerusalem. They were made between nations that were not major enemies of Israel in the first place. They are what would be called “normalisation agreements.
Far too many church leaders and teachers are following each other claiming that these agreements are the big one.
Let me tell you how this will all play out. These normalisation deals have already angered the Palestinians. They have angered Iran and they have angered Syria, Hezbollah and some other arch-enemies of Israel.
Once you get a whole lot of rabid, wild, angered dogs in a corner, you are likely to get your backside bitten if you try to pet them. These accords are not ‘Trump dividing Israel’, as the blind, always-wrong brigade keeps chanting.
They are instruments cleverly being used to freak-out the Palestinians and allies. It is designed to isolate the Palestinians, Iran and allies. Yet many in the church are the ones being angered! Of course we know it will ignite WW111, coming soon to stage near you. I say, “freak them out some more”, so we can get this show on the go, and over, and go home!
Are we heading towards the big prophetic events? Yes absolutely, but this is not it yet.
Some believe that a rather obscure verse now places Rosh Hashanah on the same day as Yom Kippur (28th) and this is now when the rapture will occur.
The problem with that is that requited, as yet unfulfilled events are still at large, so it changes nothing.
The other problem is that it is the always- wrong Revelation 12-sign teachers, putting it forward. They also claim that the Abrahamic Accord just signed, is the antichrist covenant of Daniel 9:27. They also claim the Deal of the Century was the antichrist covenant too.
Every single verse used by the Revelation 12-sign crowd is wrongly used. The verses are of replacement theology. This is important now because they seem to be making a resurgence, with this offence to the Jews continuing.
When Jews see their own scriptures perverted, turned on their heads and used to get rid of them, they react with horror. And those of the church who do this – know that there will be consequences.
Their replacement theology classics are: The Revelation 12 male Child (capitalised), is the church and not Messiah – Israel. They replace the Israel with the church in Isaiah 66:8 (read the surrounding verses), and others.
You may not be aware that the Catholic church invented replacement theology to get rid of the Jews. Here are some of the tenets of the Catholic Council of Laodicea in 363 AD:
●Outlawing of the keeping of the Sabbath. ●Changing the Sabbath to Sunday. ●Heretics and Jews were forbidden from entering the church. ●The 60th canon removed the entire book of Revelation from the New Testament. ●Communion was to be denied those who had been baptised by full immersion. ●Christians must not Judaize by resting on the Sabbath. ●It is unlawful to participate in any of the Feasts of the Jews, or to feast with them. ●Only baptism into the Catholic faith is allowed and to be accompanied with learning by heart of the Catholic creed. ●The laity may not read the scriptures.
Some of these (above) have changed since then, but some have not. The same spirit resides there.
We are now in the birth pangs of Israel’s spiritual birth. This is a most important and critical time.
In many ways Israel is like a pearl of great price, hidden in a field, or like a diamond in the rough! “Diamonds are forever,” sang Shirley Bassey and how right she is.
Israel will finally triumph over all her enemies in victory, with God’s help, in spite of those in and out of the church that place obstacles in her path.
Isaiah 26:17-18 “As a woman with child is in pain and cries out in her pangs, when she draws near the time of delivery, so have we (Israel) been in Your sight, O Lord...we have as it were, brought forth wind; we have not accomplished any deliverance in the earth, nor have the inhabitants of the earth fallen.”
Much of the church has been a stumbling block to Jews. As the Jews come to repentance, many will come to repentance for their evil against the Jews, but many will be led deeper into enmity by the spirits controlling their heritage of heresy.
Replacement theology leads the Jews away from the truth and their spiritual Promised Land. Messianic believers lead them to the truth and their spiritual Promised Land.
You should not be surprised to see that most false doctrine affects Israel in one way or another, and knocks on to other doctrines.
Israel is still in the birth canal. She has been born as a nation, but not spiritually yet. She is still blind to her Messiah and in rebellion. God has chosen some to speak to Israel, to call her to repentance and to encourage her.
The prophet Jeremiah was given a message from God to His people in rebellion.
Jeremiah 1:18-19 “I have made you (Jeremiah) this day a fortified city and an iron pillar, and bronze walls against the whole land...They will fight against you, but they shall not prevail, ‘for I am with you’, says the Lord.” (Isaiah 66:8-9)
The metals mentioned above have meaning. Iron = strength or crushing. Bronze= judgement on sin, and a pillar represents support and stability.
The Prophetic Scroll aligns totally with Jeremiah in this monumental endeavour.
Interestingly, at this particular time, many Christian churches and ministries are seeing and recognising the place of Israel in prophecy. And of course the division remains with those stuck in their ditch.
The repentance of Israel:
Micah 7:9-10 “I (Israel) will bear the indignation of the Lord because I have sinned against Him, until He pleads my case and executes justice for me. He will bring me forth to the light, and I will see His righteousness. Then my enemy will see and be covered with shame...”
God knows and we know that Israel will finally fulfil God’s purpose and calling for them as they repent in large numbers.
►In ancient Hebrew the word “repent” is made up of the two letters, ‘Shin and Beyt’ Shin is a picture of flames of fire or teeth. Beyt is a picture of a house or tent.
The word has the pictographic meaning of burning the house down as you leave and go forward. This means you have no intention of going back! You have burnt your bridges to sin! That’s what true repentance is. How amazing!
Anyone out there in the process of divorce, please don’t burn the house down as you leave. You’ll have a tough time explaining Beyt Shin to the judge.
Edition 282: October 21st 2015
Lies and Truth of today:
Lies and truth of today:
Psalm 119:29-30 “Remove from me the way of lying and grant me your law (word) graciously. I have chosen the way of truth; Your judgements I have laid before me.”
Proverbs 28:4 "If you forsake the law (word) you will praise the wicked."
Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision and shall we also say, in the valley of deception! (Joel 3:14). Multitudes are in the valley of ignorance, misinformation and plain carelessness. Satan himself knows his time is limited (Revelation 12:12) and is intensifying his efforts to spread mass confusion and distortion of truth.
Today we are in a world where truth, lies and error travel the same highway, with lies masquerading as truth and error camoflaged to appear as right and good.
Lies are the fuel of fools. It’s one thing to be uniformed, but quite another to informed and fed by the father of lies and deception.
The deceptions of the day are intensifying and have great consequences for the whole world and eternal consequences for untold billions of people.
These are big, giant issues. These are not issues to be trifled with. These issues will send you to heaven or hell! The fence is rising higher and higher – fence-sitting is no longer an option.
Can you hear and see the truth?
John 8:43-47 “Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. You are of your father the devil...there is no truth in him...when he speaks a lie he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of lies. But because I tell you the truth, you do not believe Me...He who is of God hears God’s words; therfore you you do not hear, because you are not of God.”
1 John 4:6 says that truth and error are spirits! There is great revelation in that. You can’t educate error without dealing with the spirit of error!
Please read those shocking verses above in John 8 again. They are profound indeed. Do you know why you are wasting your time speaking about the things of God with many people? It’s all wrapped up in those verses!
This prinicipel applies to everyone including your own friends, family members, entire nations, presidents, prime ministers, kings and queens.
It is impossible to grow in the things of God without knowing Him personally and intimately through the new birth as your starting foundation.
Satan, lies, deception and error are all cursed brothers and are in you if you are not saved.
After the new-birth, on the other hand, you are one with the living God, His truth and blessing, which is all in you by His Spirit. Of course it has to be worked from the inside to the outside, which is often a battle and takes time.
There are many so-called believers out there who are pure frauds. They are religious Christians and not true born-again Christians at all. It is impossible for them to operate in the truth. Their truth is rooted in Satan. Their truth is a lie.
Let’s have a look now at some of the world’s biggest lies specifically as they apply to the world’s biggest issue now – Israel.
The big lies relating to Israel, Jerusalem and Jewish people.
●The two-state solution in Israel will bring peace.
●The Palestinians have a right or inheritance to part of Jerusaelm.
●The Palestinians have ownership of the Temple Mount including the Al-Aqssa Mosque and Dome of the Rock.
●The Palestinians have a legitimate claim and inheritance to the so-called West bank.
●The Jews are the occupiers of the “settlements”.
The statements above are all big lies, but read on my friends as we break this down and look more deeply into some of these issues.
Who owns the land of Israel and the Temple Mount?
Zechariah 1:16 “I am returning to Jerusalem with mercy; ’My house shall be built in it,’ says the Lord of hosts, and a surveyors line shall be stretched over Jerusalem.”
This verse above is one of the many implying the rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem.
Nehemiah 2:19-20 (Nehemiah comes to Jerusalem and views the wall to be rebuilt) “But when Sanballat the horronite, Tobiah the Ammonite official and Geshem the Arab heard of it they laughed us to scorn and despised us saying, ‘What is this thing that you are doing? Will you rebel against the king?’ So I answered them and said to them, ‘The God of heaven Himself will prosper us; therefore we His servants will arise and build, but you have no heritage or memorial in Jerusalem.”
Note that the Arabs mocking the Jews, Nehemiah and his party, in the verse above, are told in no uncertain terms that they have “no heritage (inheritance) or memorial in Jerusalem.” No memorial in Jerusalem!! What! What is this? No Arab or Islamic memorial in Jerusalem and no inheritance in Jerusalem! What is this? And it’s right out of the Bible! Of course this has major prophetic implications for today!
So then, who has the inheritance of the land of Israel?
1Chronicles 16:17-18 “The covenant which God made with Abraham and his son Isaac and confirmed to Jacob as a statute, to Israel for an everlasting covenant, saying, to you I will give the land of Canaan as the allotment of your inheritance.”
And what about the ownership of the city of Jerusalem?
Zechariah 2:12 “The Lord will take possession of Judah as His inheritance in the Holy Land and will again choose Jerusalem
Zechariah 3:2 “The Lord said to Satan, The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you!
And you, presidents and kings of the world, want to mess with and change God’s choice!!!!! Boy, O boy, do you have guts!
Now let’s go a bit further and see what God calls the people who mess with His choice:
Jeremiah 12:14-17 “Against all My evil neighbours who touch the inheritance which I have caused My people Israel to inherit. Behold, I will pluck them out of their land and pluck out the house of Judah from among them. Then it shall be after I have plucked them out that I will return and have compassion on them...and bring them back to their land.”
This verse above is speaking of the dispersion of Israel and ultimate regathering back to God’s ultimate choice. But Israel’s neighbours and those who change God’s choice are called evil!
Now let’s have a look at an incredible covenant, made by the Jewish people:
Isaiah 28:15-18 “Because you have said, we have made a covenant with death, and with Sheol (hell) we are in agreement. When the overflowing scourge passes through, it will not come to us, for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood we have hidden ourselves.”
This is not necessarily a covenant in the regular sense, although it could refer to the coming Daniel 9:27 peace covenant or treaty with the antichrist. Either way it’s an agreement made by Israel with lies and death. Sorry, Israel, your road to victory is going to be hindered by your own attempted crafty agreement with the UN or Iran or the Palestinians, or Jordan or some “peacemaker.” Who is a liar at heart seeking your death!
Ezekiel 13:18-19 “Woe to the women who sew magic charms on their sleeves and hunt souls! Will you hunt the souls of My people and keep yourselves alive? Will you profane Me among My people for handfuls of barley and pieces of bread, killing people who should not die and keeping people alive who should not live, by your lying to My people who listen to lies.”
Israel, stick to God’s word, especially now, if you don’t you will regret it. Do not respond to the liars out there!
Israel, look at these verses above, study them! Do you see the inheritance of the land and the city is yours and not the Palestinians?
Israel, do you see that there are people out there who are liars at heart and want to deceive you? Do not make any form of agreements with them.
Now let’s look at some amazing current events.
Joseph’s bones cry out:
The attack and setting fire to Joseph’s tomb a few days ago was no spontaneous or random event. There are deep spiritual reasons for it. In fact the reasons are just the same as the reasons for the recent attacks (and coming attacks) on the Temple Mount. They are all related.
Obadiah 1:17-18 “On Mount Zion there shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions. The house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame: but the house of Esau (Arab / Palestinians) shall be stubble...and no survivor shall remain of the house of Esau, for the Lord has spoken.”
Islam has an insatiable, satanically driven desire to dominate and conquer all the sacred sites of Jews and Christians. Joseph’s bones, at his own request when he was alive, were taken from Egypt to Sachem (Nabulus today). They become a very real testimony and prophecy of the Israeli ownership and possession of the land.
Do you see the prophecy in the verse above, that the Arabs / Palestinians shall become “stubble” and be destroyed?
Joshua 24:32 “The bones of Joseph, which the children of Israel had brought up out of Egypt, they buried at Shechem (Nabulus today) for one hundred pieces of silver, and which had become an inheritance of the children of Joseph.”
This incredible verse above speaks of this area becoming an inheritance of the children of Israel. This is not Palestinian territory, it is owned by Israel!
So why do the Palestinians hate Joseph’s tomb containing his bones? Why have they set fire to it a few times in the recent past? Why is this important now?
They know that God’s word declares in no uncertain terms that the tomb and its surroundings are owned by Israel!
Do you see the timing of this in the verse further above in Obadiah? Note that the house of Joseph becomes a flame at the time when there is “deliverance for the Jews on Mount Zion” Note that this also marks the time period in which the Arabs (Palestinians) will be destroyed!
The “house of Joseph” symbolised by his tomb, is also a reference to the end-time uniting of Israel and also speaks of the unity between Ephraim and Manasseh which relate to Gentile believers and Jews.
Joseph’s bones contain a powerful living secret message! This is why Satan hates Joseph’s tomb! As Joseph is a dramatic, powerful type of our Messiah and the salvation of Israel, so in his death, we see that his body was removed from Egypt, a type of the world. This speaks of the dead in Messiah being raised at the rapture.
That little fire at Joseph’s tomb was small in the big scheme of things, yet it is rich in symbolism and biblical messages.
By the way, note that Joseph’s tomb contains the bones of Joseph. Joseph’s tomb in Jerusalem where our Lord was buried contains no bones – they are risen! Also please note that the “dry bones of the whole house of Israel” are in the process of coming to life now. No grave can contain them. Also please note that the bones of Moses were “taken by God” – yet another type of the dead in Messiah being raised at the rapture.
The discovery of the ruins of Sodom:
In the last few weeks a major archaeological discovery has been made.
Before I go any further I need to completely reject all the work and claims of the false archaeologist, the late Ron Wyatt. People in the know refer to him as the greatest fraud of the century. He was a liar, and deceiver. The reason I’m making an issue of this is because so many gullible Christians today, have been drawn into his deception. He has claimed to have found Noah’s Ark, the Ark of the Covenant, and even claimed to have found the shed blood of Messiah. He claimed to have discovered the remnants of Sodom (in the wrong area.) Not one of his “discoveries” has ever been substantiated by his peers or by the industry. He was rejected by all archaeologists with any validity.
I suggest you look up all the claims and lies, but do NOT send me emails supporting this fraud. (By the way, I have tons of information on this, being personally involved in some of these things some time ago.)
A few months ago the ruins of a city in southern Jordan were discovered. This site is approximately where original Sodom once stood in its pride. Archaeologist Dr. Steve Collins has been working on the site for ten years and has only now come to the conclusion that it is the remnants of Sodom.
The excavations reveal that life and the city came to an abrupt end, consistent with the biblical account.
So, why is the archaeological discovery important at this point in time?
The Bible declares that time period of the coming of the Lord will be “as in the days of Noah and Lot.” (Luke 17:26-28) and also Jude 1:7.
We know the story of Lot being removed from the homosexual capital of the then world, Sodom, before its fiery destruction by God because of its evil homosexuality and pride. (Ezekiel 16:49.)
Furthermore, the archaeological discovery brings to the surface the reality of God’s judgement on sin, homosexual sin in particular.
The days of Noah are also compared with the days of the coming of the Lord. (Matthew 24:38,
Putting the verses dealing with the days of Noah and Lot together, this is what we come up with: They were days of aggressive homosexuality, pride, wickedness, evil imaginations, self-seeking, and hearts of evil, corruption, violence and terrorism, fornication, sex with “strange flesh.” We see the rejection of God’s warnings, we see life going on as normal, content with the world of evil.
In fact it was only Lot who was “oppressed with the filthy conduct of the wicked.” (2 Peter 2:7).
Be aware of the numbers involved. There were only eight righteous people left in Noah’s day and Lot and his family in their day. This speaks of almost the whole world being under the dominion of the lies of Satan today and only few who are right with God!
Do you see the gravity of the situation? The whole world will be deceived by the liar Satan and his voice the mass-media in the coming days.
Who do you get your information from? Who do you get your values system from? Who do you align your life and lifestyle with? Are you one of the crowd? Are you offended by the wickedness, evil, lies and errors of today?
Psalm 119:53 “Indignation and horror has taken hold of me because of the wicked who forsake your law.”
How is your heart?
When your heart has been mashed and moulded by our Lord and you move forward in Him and with Him, your options in the world decrease, as the road ahead becomes narrow, but at the same time your wisdom increases dramatically and you change from an an insinificant, small person to an important, big, powerful person from eternity’s point of view and from God’s point of view.
God’s giants are the world’s insignificant fools!
1 Corinthians 1:18-19 “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. I will destroy the wisdom of the wise.”
What glory to see a life change from insignificance, a follower of the crowd, to a life of purpose, meaning and stability, secure in God and His eternal purposes.
But for many, their hearts are hard, moulded by the father and power of lies. Do you know that some types of people can pray and call out to the Lord all they like, but He turns away? They are trapped in their life of lies.
Zechariah 7:12-13 “They made their hearts like flint, refusing to hear the law and the words which the Lord of hosts had sent by His Spirit through the former prophets. Thus great wrath came from the Lord of hosts. Just as He proclaimed and they would not hear, so they called out and I would not listen, says the Lord of hosts.’”
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. Your hands are full of blood. Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. Cease to do evil.”
The evil day:
Ephesians 5:14-16 “Awake sleeper, arise from the dead...see that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming (buying back) the time, because the days are evil.”
The evil days are not going to get better. As the restrainer is removed in the approaching tribulation they will get terribly worse.
We are now in the run-up to the full manifestation of the evil day! It is the day of the championships of error, evil and lies. This is the day of Christians being rocked to sleep and rocked to their very foundations. This is the day the devil gains victory over those of weak faith and double minds and standards.
Galatians 5:7 “You ran well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth?”
I know personally many believers who have become shipwrecked. I know some who are running well – very well, moving forward with our Lord towards untold glory. The numbers are interesting. It’s the good old story of the many and the few. Many are rocking, teetering, stumbling and falling. Few are enduring well.
Backslider, God loves you. He will keep the door open for you to return from the pigsty, but becareful out there wallowing in the cow-dung - the end of a backslide is not God giving up on you, but you giving up on Him – with eternal consequenses.
This is the day when huge numbers will get saved and huge numbers will fall away. You had better make your decisions and intentions clear to the spirit world.
We are on the cusp of the fullness of the evil day and the fullness of the Day of the Lord. Both the purposes and plans of God and the devil are starting to collide and explode. Secure your foundation. Examine your faith, strengthen your faith. Set your heart and minds to know our Lord and His word. Be radical! Be an extremist! Be God’s warrior. Be His lover, soldier and bride!
We see rising troubles centred on the Temple Mount ahead of the prophecy of a coming new Jewish, temple to be built on the site. We see Joseph’s tomb becoming a “flame of fire” because it affirms Israel’s ownership of the whole area. We see the timely discovery of what may be the remains of the evil city of Sodom, which is linked to the whole end-time scenario.
In all of these things we see Satan’s advocate, the world’s mass media, supporting the Palestinian cause and agenda, directly against God’s word, plan and agenda! We see the lies of Satan, the god of lies being elevated to “normality”, rejecting God’s definition of marriage.
We see a large part of the church complicit with the devil, by their silence on these things and in many cases directly supporting Satan’s agenda.
All of these things point to where we are on the prophetic map, to say nothing of all the other dramatic events like wars, conflicts and new alignments of nations.
We really need to stand strong in expanding, growing faith in our Lord and His word in these days. If not, we will grow in faith of father of lies Satan.
Imagine being so stupid as to think you know better than God!
I took this picture north of my home. It’s an appropriate named rock-breaker wild fig growing out of a rock cliff-face. Today we need a strong, deeply rooted system in our Lord as the world cracks up around us.
Shalom and grow in grace!
