|This ministry has a distinct kingdom, Messianic vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for the Jewish people and the church. My position is pre-trib! Personally: I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share these great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God.|

If you see a speed limit sign and there are cops around, you obey it and you think you are good. If there is no sign and no cops around and you obey the general speed limit, because something in your heart says it’s the right thing to do – that’s good.
If the gospel is not changing you radically, you are receiving a false gospel or it is powerless due to legalism, or your own heart is wrong.
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 waiting game!
Waiting can be time wasted! Waiting in expectant anticipation, preparing your heart in diligence, is another story!
In many ways, waiting is a reprieve, giving us extra time to build up our eternal reward, allowing us to prepare and be ready, before the big atomic bang to meet the Lord in the sky.
Waiting, changing, growing and preparing will be rewarded, and what a reward it will be, with no regret in sight. I can’t wait!
The entire end-time drama is unwinding. Things are converging, they are imminent and impending. Time is running out fast.
There is a mature waiting! It is cautious, but produces an inner, satisfying calm, and an excitement of heart.
Waiting can create anxiety and stress. Waiting can create impatience. But waiting at the instruction of the Lord, strengthens us. (Isaiah 40:31)
Eyes and ears are opening! The eyes of the Jews are opening to their heaven-born Jewish Messiah. Their eyes are fluttering and blinking as many begin to see a glimpse of glory through the opening veil. Dry bones are rattling.
The veil of blindness on the multitudes of the unsaved remains closed, obscuring their hell-destined messiah. Now their veil of darkness is growing thicker and darker.
These are the days when we must see with spiritual eyes and hear God’s plan for us. Yet most are deaf and blind to the things of God and alive to the plans of the devil.
These are the days of grafting in and cutting off! (Romans 11:17, 22) The true Jewish olive branch is being grafted in and the many of the wild olive branches (the church) are cut off.
Waiting for Israel:
Isaiah 35:1 “The wilderness and the desert shall be glad in them (Israel) and the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose; it shall blossom abundantly.”
Awake, awake O Zion. Arise and shine. Awake, O sleeper from the dead! Your dead will live! Wake yourself and stand up, O Jerusalem. They will arise and shout for joy. Awake my harp and lyre – I will awaken the dawn.
I compiled the above phrase from Ephesians 5:14, Isaiah 26:19, Isaiah 51:17, Isaiah 52:1 Isaiah 60:1 and Psalm 108:2
Romans 13:11 “It is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.”
If Israel would hurry up and awake – we can get this whole show on the road!
The shock of all shocks:
The world is being overrun with the satanic, sin, evil, socialism and numerous enemies of God. Satan and his hordes are surrounding the world with their chariots of evil fire.
2 Kings 6:16-17 (When surrounded by enemies) “Elisha said, ‘Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those with them.’ And Elisha prayed that the Lord would open his eyes that he may see.’ Then the Lord opened his eyes and he saw a mountain full horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.”
It doesn’t matter how long we have to wait. At the end of the day, “there are more spiritual forces with us than with them!” The story is simple: We win! The unbelieving world can’t see that they have lost already!
“Now is the judgement of the world.” (John 12:31)
Imagine the absolute shock the unbeliever will get when his eyes are really opened as he enters hell, – too late!
Imagine the shock of knowing that there was a book available to them all their lives saying that they are doomed which showed the way to be free, and they kept it closed, scorned it and rejected it.
Imagine the unbeliever’s shock of finding out one day that the skies are full of invisible godly forces, surrounding those who are His!
It’s not wise to be on the wrong side, especially in these days!
Psalm 46:5-6 “God is in the midst of her (Jerusalem), she shall not be moved. God shall help her, just at the break of dawn. The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted.”
Jeremiah 10:10 “The Lord is the true God; He is the living God and the everlasting King. At His wrath the earth will tremble and the nations will not be able to abide His indignation.”
The world can try as it may to create a new world order of peace. It can use the free market system, democracy, theocracy, socialism, communism, capitalism, tyranny or anything it likes, but it can’t get rid of sin in the heart of man! It is forever doomed to be eternally united with sin.
We are not called to reform the world. We are called to die to it, and come out of it. Our world is not of this world. Our world is perfect and sin free. It is called “The Kingdom of God.”
That does not mean that we remain passive in the face of godlessness in the world.
The true Christian has “peace that surpasses understanding”! (Philippians 4:7) “There is no peace for the wicked.” (Isaiah 48:22) “Wickedness is in the heart of man.” (Genesis 6:5, Jeremiah 17:9)
►The world doesn’t want you to see its god. If you can’t see the true God because He has been hidden and removed from society, you can’t see the world’s god and you can’t see the fiery gulf into which you are headed.
The wait is almost over:
When all the arrows are collectively pointing in one direction and the time clock is ticking away and the Spirit of God in the hearts of those with eyes and ears all unanimously see and hear the same thing that means the train is almost here!
Edition 286: November 18th 2015
The spirit world:
The spirit world:
In this edition I want to deal with an important issue. Most people don’t think so because they can’t see the world of demons, angels, the Spirit of God and Satan.
In fact the spirit world is very real indeed and although we can’t see them with our eyes, we most certainly do see the results of their works. The spirit world is going to become a lot more important as we head for major prophetic times.
In fact you are wall to wall spirit. If you were to step out of your body now, a spirit would be standing right there.
After resurrection you will live forever in a new body made up of spirit. It will be pure and holy, with all the impurities and faults removed. It will be a body that can manifest physically and then de-materialise at will. It will be a body with full, complete knowledge. You will know everything.
You will be a true time traveller and be able to travel at the speed of thought. You will not be bound to any of the laws of physics although you will be able to transcend both the physical and spiritual. You will be eternally young and totally healthy in every way possible.
You will be given authority over various situations or tasks or even other worlds.
Talk about putting science fiction to shame! My friends this is what is coming.
(Please see edition 197 HERE for more)
Spirits of truth and error:
God is a Spirit, Satan is a spirit and you are a spirit. All will live forever. All have doctrines and belief systems associated.
1 John 4:6 “We are of God. He who knows God hears us, he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.”
Note in the verse above that both truth and error are spirits! They manifest in the natural and physical realms, but they are essentially spirits. This means that they are alive! Obviously this also means that one is of the living God and the other of the devil.
The spiritual forces of truth and error have enormous power of persuasion, because they have real spirit beings behind them. This is why the unsaved and the unequipped Christian are sitting ducks for the devil.
You may know the following verse well, but please read it again and take note of the implications:
Ephesians 6:10-17 “Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armour of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood , but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age and against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places...take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God...”
The verse goes on to describe the main pieces of spiritual armour which the believer, especially in these end days of intensifying spiritual conflict, must wear. Three of these items are defensive and one, the sword, is offensive. But note what the sword actually is - it is the “word of God.”
So we are to go on the attack, using the word of God and not our own ideas or those of the mass- media and the world. Yes we do all in love, but sometimes that love must have a severe dimension to it. Cutting out cancer is painful, but is actually love in action.
The Bible commands us to “consider the goodness and severity of God” (Romans 11:22)
Today a huge number of churches are big trouble. They have capitulated to the god of this world. So many of them have rejected the fullness of the baptism of the Spirit, which includes the gifts the armour and the spiritual weapons needed to stand against the devil.
Their congregations are getting smaller as people fall away, while other spirit-filled churches are growing fast.
Have you ever noticed that those who come against the baptism in the Spirit never talk of or teach on spiritual warfare and the use of spiritual weapons?
Those who come against or are neutral to the baptism in the Spirit are always silent on casting out demons. You will rarely hear them address anything to do with spiritual warfare simply because they are blind to it all and ill-equipped to deal with it.
Mark 16:17 “These signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues.”
The teaching of these spirit-less Christians is always dead. There is no spark, no real life, its dead letter and it’s boring. Their teaching is never really pre-emptive or prophetic but in most cases backward looking. It’s always analysis after the fact.
The shocking thing revealed in the word of God about the church is that only a small part of it is doing just fine. The rest of the church is in great trouble as revealed in our Lord’s messages to the seven churches in the opening chapters of the Revelation.
Here are two verses that are a bit of a shock!
Revelation 2:13 “I know your works and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is...”
Revelation 2:24 “To you I say and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as who do not have this doctrine, and who have not known the depths of Satan...”
Do you see that these churches actually have a close identity with Satan himself! Of course they can’t see that, but God can!
Please don’t go chasing after angels, demons or any spirits all over the place. Don’t go looking for spirits behind every item of furniture. Just be aware of them. Let God show you what is needed.
Do not receive everything that comes dressed up in religiosity! Beware of many (not all) of the Youtube ministries. Some of them are deadly. Some appear to be so good but there are always tell-tale signs of false spirits at work.
These are normally seen in people who use manipulation to gain a following.
1 John 4:1 “Do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”
2 Corinthians 11:14 “Satan himself transforms himself into and angel of light.” (Context is ministers.)
The Spirit of truth:
The Spirit of truth will always manifest in you in pure holiness. He is a Holy Spirit. He will always have the characteristics revealed in the Bible. He will always be full of good fruit.
When He the Spirit of truth is at work there will liberty, freedom and peace. When the spirit of error is at work there will be bondage, evil, sin. James 3:15 “This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic.
If the Spirit of truth is in you, active and alive, you will always have a forward-looking orientation. You will always have an exciting dimension to your life, because our Lord will be showing you things to come! You will always be anchored and balanced in the truth.
John 16:13 “When He the Spirit of truth has come, He will guide you into all truth...and He will tell you things to come.”
My friends, the Spirit of truth is selective. He won’t share His truth with the devil. He won’t share or reveal to you His truth if He knows you won’t use and apply it.
Beware the spirit of Obama:
I’ve just noticed a subtle, but excellent example of what this edition is about, in US President Obama. He speaks with a forked tongue! He speaks pure rubbish, designed to appease the gods he serves and he most probably isn’t even aware of it.
Obama condemned the Paris terror attacks calling the perpetrators “terrorists”. Sounds good hey? But he said nothing of Islam or Muslims.
Yes they are terrorists, but that word is so nebulous and can refer to such a wide range of issues. You see, these were not just terrorists. They are people who love the jihad of the Quran!
Obama and his puppet, UK’s Cameron, speak the same ill-informed error coming right from the god of error. They repeatedly call Islam a religion of peace. If they took the trouble to look up what the Quran says in numerous places about killing the infidel, including beheadings and other such things, they would have a real tough time explaining it. So they lie!
They speak the words of the father of lies. They create an incorrect picture and understanding. They appease the very source of the trouble.
Please always remember that what Islam means by peace is the ultimate eradication of resistance!
What’s life all about?
Too many people look at their circumstances and say to themselves, “What’s life all about”? Life is making money buying some happiness for a while until it runs out and then doing it all again! People wonder why buying happiness never produces deep fulfilment.
It’s because whatever you can buy is essentially dead (unless you’ve just bought a puppy). All goods, even a red Ferrari is dead and empty. Your Ferrari can’t give you true deep love and comfort. It can only give five minutes of empty, shallow happiness. Even the Ferrari has no spirit – it’s dead.
How come very few very wealthy people have internal joy? Most people struggle to be happy and then they die. They say, “Surely there has to be more to life than this rat race to keep up with the rats next door – the Joneses.” The reason they will never find true deep joy is because they’re living for self and deep within the bowels of self is Satan! You can never satisfy Satan!
You see, Satan’s evil grows. It’s always hungry. It advances and it feeds on you and then advances some more. It eats into your very purpose for being. So like cancer, if you don’t remove it will kill you.
By the way, if anyone wants to buy me a red Ferrari (or any colour), I’ll say, thank you very much.
You were known before the foundations of this earth, says the Bible. What sort of madness is that? God knew you way back in the eternal past before you even thought of. Okay we can only superficially understand that, but stop and think about it for a moment.
If God knew you way back then, has He forgotten you now? Of course not! What this means is that God created you with a plan and purpose wrapped up in His will and plans. You are not some afterthought, you are not some afterbirth. You are not some random creation with no more meaning than a Walt Disney drawing.
If God knew you millions, billions trillions and quadrillions of years ago and here you are now walking around on this earth, that means you have incredible purpose to your life. You are much more than valuable and precious! You are part of an eternal plan that is just beginning.
So many people can’t see these things because they can only see the material, physical realm. They can only see the here and the now. They can’t see the reality of eternal spiritual life. They can’t see and don’t even believe that they are an eternal spirit!
1 Corinthians 6:19 “Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own.”
Next time you look in a mirror say hullo to the real you! Not that person looking back at you, the one you can’t see the real one who will live forever.
Next time you’re having a bad day, think about these things. Cast your thoughts way out into eternity. Cast your thoughts towards a future so majestic, spectacular, wonderful and eternal. Cast your thoughts way back to long before you were invented by God and remember that He knew you, was thinking about you; looking forward to meeting with you and coming to visit you in the most incredible home in the universe that He has made for you anyway.
All these things are coming.
If you don’t have eyes for the things of the Spirit, you are vulnerable and will lack endurance and stability.
Many people are and will continue to fall away from the truth in these days. They are being led by spirits they can’t see and can’t deal with because their stupid minister wearing a frock hasn’t taught them or prepared them.
1 Timothy 4:1 “The spirit expressly says that in the latter times, some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons.”
There’s a stirring in the air!
Right now spirits are becoming restless. They’re stirring and arising for battle. There is war in the heavenly realm. It’s beginning to intensify. The terror attacks of recent days are just the beginning. We are now going to see many of these things go into high gear.
Europe and the US are the main targets. It is all Satan’s work.
Because of the very limited time that is left before the coming of the Lord, these things have to intensify now. The world is about to be rocked by unseen spirits, devils, demons and their servants.
It’s time for true believers to examine themselves, to check their faith-status, to get their lives right.
It is time to cast off the sins that beset and to walk in holiness. It is time to surrender every area of your heart to the Lord. Open every door of your heart and clean out the garbage and let the Holy Spirit flood in.
It is time to know who you really are. It is time to realise that you have an eternal plan, destiny and reason for being here now. The least you can do is repent for all known sin and freshly dedicate your life to our King of kings and Lord of lords.
It is time to humble yourself before the mighty God, fall on your face in surrender to Him. It is time to harden your hearts to all the schemes of the devil.
Do not fall asleep in the light (That was the title of a Keith Green song.) The light will not be here or not be clearly visible for much longer.
At this time, I give you warning. The spirits of evil and deception are going to begin major deceptive works.
The works of deception will be powerful, strong and completely convincing. There will be people arising within the church claiming to be the two witnesses. They will be supernaturally empowered by spirits of pride and evil.
There will be major deceptions of sight and sound and signs in the sky.
If you have been involved in the occult, you need to seek complete and full deliverance, because you will have doors open! If you know beyond any doubt that you are clean and free – well and good, but know that you will targeted again much more powerfully.
Jihad, terror, and even WW111 are before us, can you see it stirring?
Finally the big prize of the devil is Israel. We are on the cusp of huge dramas with Israel. The Spirit of God is about to bring them to punishment for all their rebellion, even the great sins of Israel’s capital of homosexuality – Tel Aviv, will be brought down.
Satan will use the Arab nations, Europe, the UN and the US to cause much harm to Israel, as prophesied in numerous verses. Also as prophesied, these nations will in the process, bring wrath upon themselves.
In the midst of all of this God will lift the veil from the Jewish remnant bringing them to salvation.
What incredible drama this all is!
The voice of the devil:
Beware the mass media! They are inspired, orchestrated and led by Satan himself. They don’t even know that, but it is true. They are about to fulfil their tragic, deadly roles for which they were created. The mass media will be directly responsible for the biggest miss-information program, and all out lies the world has ever seen.
The mass media will contradict God again and again, making a mockery of His word. All the big-ticket items of God’s word they will come against. These are things needed for a strong nation under God. The attacks will be against God’s word on abortion, capital punishment, homosexuality and LGBT, discipline of children, the call of the Jews to salvation, their return to and ownership of all of the land of Israel, the dividing of land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem and much more.
Here’s a simple example of how the voice of the devil has infiltrated modern thinking: Today, the media says that homosexuals were born that way. No they weren’t! At some point they opened some doors to the devil in which there was vulnerability, then Satan and demon forces came in and took possession.
That’s how it works. That’s why these people can’t get free. There are a million hallmarks and characteristics of demon possession and activity in homosexuals. They need deliverance to be free.
The media will spear-head all of Satan’s plans.
Here is verse that will include the media. They will show and tell of these things. They will be involved in spreading the great deceptions of the end-times.
Revelation 13:13-14 “He (antichrist) performs great signs, so that he makes fire come down from heaven upon the earth in the sight of men, and he deceives those who dwell on the earth by these signs, which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast...”
Made by Israel, Made by Islam:
I saw a cartoon the other day with the above title. It got me to thinking. How come Israel has invented, constructed, made, manufactured, grown and produced more good stuff for the good of the whole world than any other nation on earth?
How come Islam has done nothing for the good of the world at all ever? If you can think of one thing, please let me know! Of course Islam has murdered as many as the Catholic church. Islam has created and manufactured great numbers of suicide vests, terror weapons, misery, domination and control of people’s minds and actions.
Bless Israel, you’ll be blessed. Curse Israel and you’ll be cursed, says the Bible. This verse and other like it show and demonstrate that God has His favour on what is of Him in the first place. That which comes from the Spirit of God has success and abundance attached to it.
1 John 3:2-3 “...We know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.”
There is such great glory coming to those who endure to the end. There are so many who will fall away who need not. They will be full of eternal regret.
I think the following few verses are amongst the greatest in the Bible. How amazing is this, and its all true!
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 "We do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction is but for a moment and is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things are seen, but at the things which are not seen, for the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal."
I took this picture with my Hasselblad remote controlled on the nest of a Black Eagle.
Shalom and grow in grace!
