- The Kurds in Syria 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."Jerusalem spooked by Russia's growing control over the Midle East." (Times of Israel 18 October.)
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
Matthew 21:15 “When the chief priests and the scribes (Media) saw the wonderful things that He did...they were indignant.”
Matthew 23:13 “Woe to you scribes, (Media) Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven for men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.”
Deuteronomy 27:18 “Cursed is he who makes the blind to wander out of the way of God.” (Media)
Jeremiah 8:6, 9 “Everyone turned to his own course... Look the false pen of the scribe certainly works falsehood...The wise men are ashamed, and dismayed and taken. Behold, the have rejected the word of the Lord; so what wisdom do they have.” (Media)
Isaiah 30:1 “Woe to the rebellious children, says the Lord, who take counsel, but not of Me, and who devise plans, but not of My Spirit, that they may add sin to sin.” (Media)
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.
18th October 2019
Shabbat Shalom to all!
- There is still no Israeli government in sight as Bennie Gantz rejects Netanyahu’s latest offer to form a unity government. But Gantz says he is thinking about it. It is this impasse that is delaying the release of the “Deal of the Century.”
- AThe US brokered ceasefire in Syria is falling apart one day after it was instituted! Mike Pompeo tells Netanyahu this morning (18th October) that the US will still support Israel.
- Late breaking news is that this morning 18th October, the ceasefire has broken down with renewed fighting, shelling and bombing in the region of the ceasefire as smoke rises from towns.
- Iran says it will continue to violate the nuclear deal as it moves to higher levels of uranium enrichment, provoking the world and Israel in particular.
- The Russian bear is making serious, strategic advances in Syria and in the wider Middle East. Iran and Turkey are fateful players, preparing the way for WW111 (The war of Gog and Magog, Syria and others. We are witnessing a very fast reshuffling of the stage.
- What we are seeing in the Middle East is battle for power and control – all perfectly prophesied!
Israel has a beady eye on it all. Prophetically, Israel must be a key component of these wars. It really doesn’t matter who does what, because prophecy will and is being fulfilled!
By the way, because the Bible prophecies certain things that does not mean it is sanctioning those things. They will come to pass right or wrong.
Bible interpretation and application:
In this report I want to draw your attention to some very important issues relating to our understanding of the Bible. These issues have always been important, but now as we head into these dangerous end-times, it is of critical importance.
We need to understand that Bible prophecy comes in various forms. Sometimes it is written directly for the present time exclusively. For example, the prophecies of Isaiah 17 relating to the soon coming destruction of Damascus, Syria, have never had an occurrence in history. Therefore its interpretation and application is for one point in time – now.
Then, we have many prophecies that were events that took place historically. That would be the interpretation. But they may have application to future events. This is called prophecy with a double reference. In these cases you need to be well disciplined in your application. Never take and application or analogy too far!
In dealing with prophetic application you must always be on guard against presumption. You really do need the gifts of the Spirit to correctly see into prophecy. Bear in mind that the word of God is useless, dead letter, or it is alive and presently speaking. The baptism in the Spirit makes the difference.
Sometimes a prophetic vision or message may be built on a number of different sources, and like a grand conductor, the Spirit of God puts it all together.
Prophetic interpretation and application must not contradict any verse in the Bible.
There is much to be said about prophetic dreams and visions. Personally, I don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater, but I’m very cautious. More so from whom they originate.
But, the Bible says that there will be an increase in dreams and vision as the end approaches. We must be watchful, but also watchful in relation to whom these dreams and visions come from, because many, in their pride, are on the manipulation band wagon!
The central purpose behind all prophecy is to reveal and inform us about the coming of our Lord, It is o give us knowledge, understanding, wisdom and sight of His soon coming and all the events surrounding His coming. It is bring Israel face to face with her Messiah.
Bible prophecy also reveals the work of the enemy. It reveals the modern kiss of Judas in replacement theology!
Time is very short!
We must always beware of spiritual novices with some of these gifts. Many of them create a big mess, which has to be unravelled.
We must always be aware of the spirit in and behind certain Bible teachers and ministers. Too many have a pride and ego problem, which the devil uses to bring in great error. Too many are subtly creating division, which becomes a sect and finally a cult!
Beware of those who come with forcefull "private or personal interpretations". (2 Peter 1:20)
Here is a shocking portion of scripture:
1 Corinthians 1:10-13 “I plead with you brethren, by the name of our Lord, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgement...Now I say to you this, that each of you says, ‘I am of Paul’, or ‘I am of Apollos’, or ‘I am of Cephas’, or ‘I am of Christ.’ Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptised in the name of Paul?”
This scripture above is a terrible indictment on the church. Today we see so clearly, the disastrous effects of a church divided. Yet we still the proud and arrogant, trying to “capture” and control people in their divisive sects.
There is strength in unity. There is extra strength in godly unity. In these days a solid Spirt-led knowledge of God’s word is an absolute necessity and a safety net
You should listen to no one who has does not have the evidence and fruit of listening to, and understanding the voice of God. There are many voices out there, all vying for your attention. Learn to be discerning and shut off the voices of the world.
In your pursuit of God and in your own study time, you need to be seriously disciplined. I heard someone say the other day: “They’ve taken away discipline in the schools now the children don’t respect us, their parents anymore.”
How true and tragic that statement is. It applies jus as well to your relationship with our Lord. No discipline no respect for Him and don’t expect to get anything from Him.
Part of our discipline involves waiting patiently for our Lord. What alternative do we have? But keep your spiritual eyes and ears open. Things may suddenly develop very fast!
Edition 291: December 23rd 2015
The curse of Christmas:
The curse of Christmas:
My aim in this edition is not to offend anyone, but to simply present the truth. If you are offended by the truth, or would rather have me not deal with issues that may rock your boat – then I can’t help you.
The main thrust of this edition is identifying and dealing with curses. We need to be aware of how they come about, and what God (not me) has to say on these important issues.
This subject is liberating. It just may set you on a new road. In fact, once you have dealt with these curses sincerely, you will find yourself in a new world spiritually. Your very identity and spiritual character will change for the good.
I am including Easter with Christmas in this edition because of the self-same roots and the same curses involved.
Please read all the Bible verses in this edition.
If you end up rejecting all of this, and still celebrate Christmas and Easter, I will still walk happily with you as a believer.
The people who condemn us who come against the paganism of Christmas and Easter, wrongly assume that we are coming against the birth, death and resurrection of Messiah and that we are enemies of Christ. No sir, by no means! Our aim is to believe all the things of the Bible in a clean and holy manner as commanded in scripture.
If you celebrate Christmas, I challenge you to read every verse in this edition honestly and you will see exactly where we are coming from.
You should never be offended at the truth, which is always liberating, sets free and even has a healing power to it.
But some get extremely offended. They are actually offended more by their own tradition being confronted than anything else.
Obviously those who are offended at their traditions being confronted don’t love the truth. They would say that they do, but they don’t.
Psalm 119:165 “Nothing causes those who love the truth to be offended.”
Another reason why people get so offended by the evil traditions being confronted is that they can’t believe they have been wrong. They can’t believe they have been hoodwinked and duped by the devil. They can’t believe that they’ve been on the wrong road all this time!
Some will never be free of these curses because they love the evil. You can’t ever get free from what or who you love. You must make error your enemy to be free.
You can’t Christianise evil! You can’t construct an idol image of Satan and call it Yeshua. You must destroy the idols in your life. You must “come out and be separate.”
►Let me add here that there are some preachers and ministers whom I greatly respect, who do celebrate Christmas and Easter. This is not a salvation issue and not a separation issue. I will continue to walk happily with them and respect them as always. We just go different directions on this issue.
The pagan origins of Christmas and Easter:
Every single little and big aspect of Christmas is rooted in Babylonian pagan worship, even the date. There is so much that has been done on this, that I’m not going to spend time getting into all the details (Look up “Origins of Christmas and Easter”.
The degree to which the church has been hoodwinked is so shocking it’s almost unbelievable.
You can see some of the details in the following video clip and website:
●The pagan origins of Christmas: Part One. HERE
●The abdominal sacrifice of a pig on Easter: HERE
There is no denying all of this.
Why did the Catholic’s introduce Christmas and Easter?
There is one very simple, overriding reason and that is to keep the Jew’s out of the church. At the time, Constantine’s Rome was full of pagan devil worshippers. He believed that to make this new enforced Christianity more palatable to the people, mixture with pagan worship would do the trick. It did.
The secondary reason of keeping the Jews out of the church came about in a number of early Catholic Councils. I’m not going to go into it all now, as I have done in a number of previous editions. But be sure of this, the Catholics have always hated the Jews and tried to keep them out of the church.
They removed the seven feasts of the Lord ordained by Him and replaced them with these Babylonian occult convocations believing that the Jews would be aware of the Babylonian practises because they were once captive in Babylon and would go nowhere near it again.
The following is a shocker indeed. It chronicles and lists the Catholic timeline of its anti-Semitism from beginning to end! Click HERE
Christmas and Easter have characterised the church since Constantine. They have made it a Babylon rooted, Catholic institution despised by the Jews at large. They have been very successful not in going to the “Jew first” and not in making the “Jew jealous”, but in going to the Jew to kill him and making the Jew run away from the church.
Christmas and Easter forever united:
It’s very important to see and understand the Christmas and Easter are eternally united in Babylon. They both have every single aspect of the traditions, rituals and practises rooted in pagan, devil worship.
Have you ever wondered why Israel is supernaturally hated by the world? It’s because the Jews have the call of God upon their lives. The same is true with those of us trying to restore purity and holiness to the things and practises of God. We are often hated by those who love the world’s ways.
Colossians 2:8 “Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit according to the traditions of men, according to the basic principles of the world and not according to Yeshua.”
The curse of Santa Clause:
Did you know the name and title “Saint Nick” is an old British term for Satan? Did you know that the connections between Satan and Saint Nick go back even further in time? Simply look up “Satanic origins of saint Nick” and you will be surprised!
Did you know that the origin of the red suit comes from a sponsorship from Coke!
While you’re looking up the Satanic origins of Santa Clause please note how much material there is out there on the direct satanic involvement in so much relating to this evil figure.
The Christmas pig is part of the deal! It is called the Yule ham. It appears again at Easter, while at Passover God commands the eating of lamb. The Yule goat originates from the German (not lamb) and the pagan god Odin (Yule father). The key animals of Christmas are the pig and the goat.
What is a curse?
Curses are generated in people’s lives for many reasons. The most common reason is witchcraft of all forms, direct devil worship, false religion including clear-cut false doctrine and participating in convocations and traditions born of paganism and the occult.
Curses are like dark clouds with invisible fingers reaching down to you entrapping you. You can’t get free from them, no matter how hard you try without genuine repentance and the uses of the gifts of the Spirit.
All curses lead away from God and not to Him. They will lead you to spiritual sterility, dryness and the inability to endure. They will exhaust you, exasperate you and leave you full of stress, depression and deception. They will lead you into enslavement to the “god of this world.”
Curses will hinder your work in the Lord, and will kill your calling.
Isaiah 43:12 “...There was no foreign god among you; therefore you are My witnesses says the Lord.”
When was Yeshua born?
There is more than enough evidence that He was born on the feast day of Sukkoth also called the Feast of Tabernacles. He was not born on the satanic feast day of Saturnalia (25th). That should be more than obvious!
Again, I’m not going to spend time on this. If you’re interested just look it up.
Our Lord was crucified on the day of Passover and NOT on the day called Easter. This is the name of the Babylonian goddess of sex. As you know Easter is a “floating” holiday designed as such by the Catholics so that it would never fall on the same day as Passover, again with the intent of distancing itself from Jewish convocations.
But have you ever thought of the implications? If Easter is not on any set day it waters down the entire story of the cross!
The Great lie:
Those who celebrate Christmas always say the same thing: Jesus came to bring peace on earth. According to Luke12:51 and others, “He came to bring a sword!”
Our Lord came to bring peace on earth to those that are His!! It is only those who have gone through the cross, who are truly His.
Luke 2:14 (Amp) “Glory to god in the highest and on earth peace among men with who He is pleased...”
You can’t have peace on earth without the cross. All attempts have and will fail. You can’t have peace on earth by mixing paganism with truth. You can’t Christianise the devil!
You can’t Christianise Babylonian paganism. But the more important question is, why would you want to?
Please remember that the depth of your relationship with our Lord will always be evident in what you do and don’t do.
The true believers in our Lord who celebrate Christmas proclaim a mixture of truth and error. They have no explanation for the dozens of pagan practices that they participate in and no answer to the Bible verses condemning it all.
The true Christian is not commanded to celebrate the birth of Yeshua anywhere in the Bible. But he is commanded to identify with the Feasts of the Lord, Passover being the most solemn. He is required to change.
Christmas has no power of God in it, but only the power of the god of this world, which is why the unsaved of the world happily participate in it and why it so completely materialistic.
Here is the root source of Christmas and Easter:
So, what’s in a name?
Many say and claim that they do not worship the devil in all these things but they have just imported the pagan names and have Christianised these names and dates.
Christmas is actually the Christ mass. This is the annual Catholic convocation in which the Eucharist (bread and wine) is held up while they believe it turns into the actual body and blood of Jesus.
They in fact are crucifying their Jesus over and over again. That is pure blasphemy.
I’ve heard so many ignorant, uninformed believers saying that we need to “put Christ back into Christmas.” What hogwash! How can you put Christ back into something He was never in and condemns those who participate in paganism?
So, what’s in a name?
Deuteronomy 12:2-3 “You shall utterly destroy all the places where the nations which you shall dispossess served their gods, on the high mountains and on the hills and under very green tree. And you shall destroy their altars, break their sacred pillars, and burn their wooden images; you shall cut down the carved images of their gods and destroy their names from that place.”
Zephaniah 1:4 “...Against the inhabitants of Jerusalem, I will cut off every trace of Baal from this place, the names of the idolatrous priests, with the pagan priests.
Exodus 23:13 “Be circumspect and make no mention of the name of other gods, nor let it be heard from your mouth.”
Note how strongly the Bible condemns even the use of the names of false gods.
As I said earlier, you can’t Christianise evil. You must root out all forms, even the names of idolatry.
So, Mr. Minister, you say that you just use the names. What do you do with these three verses? O yes and there are more!
So, now we’ve looked at the use of pagan originated names alone, let’s move on to the actual pagan, demonic, false gods and how and what generates curses:
Here are some examples of Bible curses:
Deuteronomy 27:18 “Cursed be he who makes the blind to wander out of the way of God. Bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of our Messiah.”
Galatians 1:8 “Even if we or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached, let him be accursed.”
Deuteronomy 7:25-26 “You shall burn the carved images of their gods with fire; you shall not covet the silver and gold that is on them (Lit=decorations), do not take it for yourself, lest you be snared by it; for it is an abomination to the Lord your God. Nor shall you bring an abomination (Lit=idol) into your home, lest you be doomed to destruction like it; but you shall utterly destroy it and utterly abhor it, for it is an accursed thing.”
Jeremiah 10:1-4 this portion of scripture condemns the cutting down and decorating of the fir tree.
Luke 16:15 “You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of the God.”
Ezekiel 22:26 “Her priests have violated My law and profaned My holy things; they have not distinguished between the holy and the unholy, nor have they made known the difference the unclean and the clean; and have hidden their eyes from My Sabbaths, so that I am profaned among them.”
Leviticus 10:10 “You must distinguish between the holy and the unholy, and between the clean and the unclean.”
2 Corinthians 6:14-17 “...What communion has light with darkness...and what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God...come out from among them and be separate says the Lord and do not touch what is unclean and I will receive you.”
Judges 10:13-14 “You have forsaken Me and served other gods, Therefore I will deliver you no more. Go and cry out to the gods which you have chosen; let them deliver you in your time of distress.”
2 Kings 17:32-34 “...Priests of the high places sacrificed in the shrines of the high places. They feared the Lord, yet served their own gods according to the rituals of the nations...to this day they continue practicing their former rituals; they do not fear the Lord...”
There are a few monumental, giant, all important keys in these verses above. If you are ever going to walk free with our Lord. Knowing Him deeply and personally and hearing His voice you MUST apply these:
You must judge and distinguish between the unholy and the holy. You must come out from among all forms of idolatry (names included).This is not politically correct in this day!
We need to be aware of what our witness is. The demons know, the spirits see. The Jews know and see too. If you have no foreign gods in or about you, then you are My witnesses, says the Bible. Can we also apply the inverse? Sure we can!
There is always a curse on those who remove or ignore or change God’s word – always.
Most of the happy Christmas people out there are just plain uniformed and ignorant of the truth. Another large percentage knows the truth, but are too bound in the curse of these traditions to do anything about it. Another group would be those who know the truth on these things and deliberately ignore it.
In defence of Christmas:
Some are thinking that this headline is a misprint!
Today there is an all out assault on the gospel of Messiah and all things Christian. So when Christmas is attacked by the people of the world, and especially by the likes of the Obama Government, they think they are attacking Christianity.
I stand with and for Christians. I stand against any form of attack on Christianity. So when people attack Christmas because they think they are attacking Christianity, Christmas, I’m with you!
I didn’t think I’d ever say that!
The character of the church:
As a child your very character, personality and identity is formed by the input and beliefs the child learns and picks up and is exposed to. Likewise a believer is characterised in many ways from the input of his beliefs and practices.
The Christmas / Easter believing and practising Christian is a world-church Christian. He doesn’t care much for truth. He cares more for tradition, being accepted by the world and its ways and following the crowd. He cares about the approval of man rather than of God, although he would never admit it. He fears the rejection of man and the world and has no fear of the Lord. He cares nothing for his witness to the Jews or their coming salvation.
The Christian, who rejects Christmas and Easter, becomes a new form of Christian. His character identity and witness changes dramatically. Holiness, usefulness, witness become new things in his life. He identifies with Hebraic convocations and ways.
He develops a fresh pure and holy love for the word of God. It all becomes more real. He instantly loves the Jews and has a strong compassion for them and their calling to salvation.
He becomes saturated with a new feeling of cleanliness and being right with God in a more significant way than before.
Truth is costly, and makes you a hated individual and a much loved creation of the living God.
The big keys of this edition are: ●You can’t Christianise evil. ●You must distinguish and separate between the unholy and the holy. ●You must be separate from all that is not of God.
Exodus 23:1-2“...Do not put your hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness. You shall not follow the crowd to do evil...”
1 John 5:4 “Everyone who is born of God overcomes the world.”
I took this picture of two sparring giraffes in the Mkuzi Game reserve.
Shalom and grow in grace!
