The new agenda for the “good" of all is a globalist, socialist, one world order, with an inter-faith religion, and the mass-media as its voice. All these have a powerful unifying spirit at work in them – the spirit of antichrist. Socialism, like the Stalinist is of Satanism. You can never get rid of poverty by giving someone money. Poverty is a spiritual force essentially rooted in a curse from which deliverance is needed.
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 walls of Jerusalem:
Poetry is not really my thing. But I do recall lots of poetic thoughts as I walked around the streets of Jerusalem some time ago. I was awe struck not by where our Messiah walked, but the thrilling thought of where He will walk. The dusty streets, stones and walls became the subject of some paintings I did later. But I’m now going to wax lyrical. I’ve put together a painting of words – for your benefit.
Ancient stones are whispering silent soliloquies, among the sun-burnt walls. Corner-stones of spiritual stability and strength, still stand secure, riddled with holes of the ancient hatred’s bullets, and stained with dried blood of ages past, and present times too.
These stones of Jerusalem’s protection are stones of separation – holy, immovable stones, seemingly dead, but breathing life of living history. The moss-dripping masonry are milestones, with living, green twigs in crags - walls of ruined relics, written into eternity’s word.
Listen to the stones; put your ear to the walls of wisdom. Do you hear the cries of the dead? Do you hear the shrieks of celebration? Do you hear the rocks, the great carved boulders, and the pebbles, anointed with glorious and fearful prophecy?
The scarred stones of poetic justice are again announcing judgement soon to fall. The ancient stones are echoing the warnings of God. No other city-stones speak thus.
Sin's offering, the offspring of evil, will soon yield frightful fruit: Fear, horror, terror and panic. Even the beautiful aged stones of Jerusalem will shiver and shake under earth’s soon quaking!
Yet the calm, confident, contentment of fearless holiness, and eternal beauty will stand secure amongst the strain and stress of destruction's dread.
Sin’s eternal separation from the victory and glory-producing suffering of Calvary will soon be the shock of all shocks to the sin-filled world of self-worship.
Do you see the lion on the wall? Do you hear the eternal Lion, and His severe message? Do you hear God’s trumpets under His Lion’s feet and in His roar?
Can you distinguish between the Lion of God and the roaring counterfeit lion frightening only the spiritually frightened and fragile?
Sound the trumpet! Sound the glistening terrible trumpet. Sound the trumpet of ingathering. Sound the trumpet of great victory! The world’s blinded ears see nothing – fools of tragic fools - deceived in the midst of God’s shining love – rejected!
Sound the trumpet! Sound David’s harp, and raise the golden sword of glorious victory!
The sword of Satan has pierced the Shepherd, but soon the Shepherd’s sword shall strike the roaring serpent and the people will scatter to a certain hell, with all the sin-filled nations drowning in their doomed sin. Babylon’s man-made, imposter-made,confused bricks of mortar will be no more.
Sound the trumpet. Raise the alarm, raise the sword of glory, and roar, Lion of Judah - roar! Awaken your people from fateful slumber, to their coming Lamb.
The stonework of the stonemasons of Jerusalem speaks of salvation past, present, and soon to come. The stones of Jerusalem contain a living message, a message of life, eternal life, freely given but of utmost cost and glorious value.
But you must bow your speak to the speak of these sculptured, weathered virtues. You must fall on your face in the dust before the message of these rocks of ages. As you do, salvation speaks, and soon shouts, lighting the core of your life with unquenchable, immortal fire – the fire of God!
These old speaking stones sing a new song of stern severity, of great gravity. They are sharp, hard stones, but soft and gentle to His own. They are stones of solid prophecy. They will fall on and crush the nations. They speak of things to come, and very soon too.
As we see the spectacular, dramatic, majestic message of the walls of Jerusalem, Let’s take a glimpse into the exclusive, holy, eternity of eternities:
There will be stones of pure silver, streets of glorious gold. All around, imbedded in gates and walls, always open, will be unimaginable jewels. They will be jasper, sapphire, emerald, pearls, topaz, beryl, amethyst, rubies diamonds, and more.
There will be no sun or moon - the light of God’s glory will be everywhere, forever – always.
There will be the tree of life, next to crystal rivers, each tree yielding fruit once a month and there shall be no more curse! Lions shall be your friends.
The army of the Lord will now be the bride of Messiah, bedecked in righteousness, with incorruptible crowns of untarnished magnificence, ready - forever and ever.
Isaiah 9:7 “Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end...”
The Lion of lions, the Lamb of God, the sword of pure peace, will be our very comfort and eternal grace. Stones once silent, will serenade and sing with a song of songs and a descant that will reverberate through the universe.
Are you ready for the great grandeur - the glory to come?
Edition 299: February 17th 2016
Why Europe is doomed.
Why Europe is doomed:
Let’s be very clear, this title applies to a lot more than Europe. In fact it applies to almost the whole world. I’m centring in on Europe because it is all so clear.
Every nation in the world needs to learn these lessons well, but according to prophecy we know they won’t.
Europe is not doomed because it is letting in millions of Quran-based Muslim migrants. It is not doomed for its massive increase in anti-Semitism. It is not doomed because its economy is struggling.
Europe is doomed because God has doomed it!
The question is why is this so?
The Bible contains many well-known prophecies of the place of Europe in the tribulation period. All of these prophecies reveal a final great destruction of Europe by the wrath of God in the closing stages of the great tribulation.
So even if you reject the content of this edition, Europe is doomed anyway.
The world hates the God of the Bible – that’s why they are blind and full of hate for God’s plans and people.
God has a plan and purpose for the world. He has planned for world peace His way. His plan will ultimately come to pass – with Israel as the head of the world!
Isaiah 14:27 “For the Lord of hosts has purposed, and who will annul it? His hand is stretched out and who will turn it back?”
Psalm 10:13 “Why do the wicked renounce God? Because they have said in their hearts, ‘You will not require an account.’”
In the Bible we see God’s plan unfolding through time. It involves the Jews from beginning to end! We see the captivity and suffering of the children of Israel in Egypt under Pharaoh. We see the Great Exodus as Moses said “Let my people go.” We see Pharaoh and his army now with hardened hearts of hatred towards the Jews pursuing them and being killed themselves.
We see the Babylonian captivity of the children of Israel because of their sin, but then it was Babylon which was destroyed, never to rise again. (Jeremiah 51:64, Jeremiah 50:39)
Now in our era, we see the great dispersion (diaspora) of Jews because of Israel’s unbelief, which began almost 2000 years ago. (This is not a “captivity” in the traditional sense, because the Jews are free to return from most nations.)
Almost all the nations of the world took in numbers of Jews. The US hosts the most, and Europe the second largest number.
God knew that this would happen so He planned for it. We are now in the next stage of His plan which is the great regathering and return to the land of Israel.
“Let My people go” version two, is now on the go. This is the great second Exodus back to the land. God brings the Jews back to their land in spiritual blindness first and then the veil of blindness is lifted. We are in the early stages of this now.
Europe was named after the ancient mythical princess Europa. She is seen in numerous art works, sculptures and stories. The story goes that she was abducted by the god Zeus in the guise of a bull.
►The word “Europa” means “wide open.”
Zeus manifesting as the bull, is the Greek god of thunder and lightning and is typed with Satan. Zeus is also known as the god of violent weather.
Many have noted the similarity and comparison with the woman riding the powerful satanic beast of Revelation 17 to her eternal doom. In this account the woman riding the beast is world religion, Catholicism in particular.
If we apply this to Europa it would mean that the humanistic religions of Europe and all their offshoots, are riding Satan himself onto the stage. In these last days, could the association of Europe with Zeus mean that extreme, violent weather will be part of the coming judgement?
A history lesson appropriate for today:
It can be demonstrated that God has blessed every nation to some degree, where Jews have been present. God even blessed Egypt while Joseph was there.
This is revealed in the Genesis principle: “If you bless Israel you will be blessed, if you curse Israel you will be cursed.” (Genesis 12:3)
The heart and root of anti-Semitism is cursing Israel! You can apply that to the cursed BDS Movement and the cursed ministries who support it. You can apply that to historic and modern Nazism. You can apply it to the anti-Israel slant of CNN, BBC, SKY and almost all of the world’s mass media.
You can apply that to Europe – every single nation of Europe.
Anti-Semitism is defined as prejudice, hatred, hostility, and discrimination against the Jews as individuals or a group. It may manifest in physical hostility such as attacks or covertly, hidden in the heart.
It is based on an ancient hatred of the Jews by the Arab peoples. (Ezekiel 35:5). It sees the Jews as enemies of the world. It is a pure racial hatred. It is enflamed by jealousy of God’s choice of the Jews above any other nation. It is also because God has chosen the Jews to bring the good news of salvation to the world, which will be ultimately completed.
Anti – Semitism has its roots deep in the heart and mind of Satan himself and all his host of demons.
All anti – Semites, from Princes to paupers to Kings and Queens, to Prime Ministers, to Presidents, pastors and celebrities and everyone in between are ignorant of God’s word. If you simply read the Bible especially the prophets, you can never come to the conclusion of anti-Semitism.
You have one of three choices. You must remain ignorant of the Bible, or you must reject the validity of the Bible or you must surrender to it and know it, acting in accordance with it.
You may ask, why then are so many ministers of the gospel especially the non-spirit- filled crowd, anti-Semites or at least anti-Israel and pro Palestinian? I have just given you the answer. They are all ignorant of the scriptures. Let me add that there is a special sort of biblical ignorance, called spiritual blindness. These can’t see the truth even if they want to.
The example of Egypt:
Because of Pharaoh’s anti-Semitism, God hardened his heart, just as he let the Jews go. Today Europe is in a similar position. The Jews of Europe are beginning to flee and head home.
Europe has seared its own conscience in this regard. Europe has hardened its own heart to the plans of God. So God has now hardened Europe’s heart!
Ephesians 4:17-18 “...Do not walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardening of their heart.”
Isaiah 7:9 “If you will not believe, surely you shall not be established.”
Isaiah 6:10 “Make the heart of this people dull, and their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see and hear and understand and return and be healed.”
It’s not a good idea to mess with the things of God! He does not give grace to the proud! Believing and repenting of your evil is the right way. If you try to do your own thing your own way – you will have your heart hardened and be blinded!
Europe has not repented for any of its anti-Semitism. Some nations like Germany are currently making new trade deals with Israel, but nothing has changed in Germany’s pro-Palestinian, two-state solution, anti-Semitic undertone.
Was it fair of God to harden Pharaoh’s heart? Surely that makes God accountable! Well, not so fast. You see, the Egyptian captivity was nothing but ancient-time anti-Semitism. It was contrary to God’s desire, wishes and plans.
God hardened the heart of Pharaoh and messed up the wheels of the chariots after they had imprisoned the Jews, tortured them and put them to hard labour in Egypt. The Egyptian pursuit of the Jews after their release was the final act of the Exodus and the final demise of Pharaoh.
If you continue to harden your heart towards God and oppose His will and plans you are in grave danger of searing your conscience!
1Timothy4:1-2 “The Spirit expressly says that in the latter times some will depart from the faith giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy having their own conscience seared with a hot iron.”
A seared conscience is a hardened heart.
Europe is not just coming against God’s will and plan for the Jews with their anti-Semitism, but they are supplanting and replacing God’s will with that of Quran-based Islam. It is the Quran that “hates the Jews” and commands their deaths.
Isn’t it interesting that Europe is “letting My people go”, but instead of blessing them, they are “pursuing them with anti-Semitism, the BDS Movement, replacement theology, and everything besides the ovens of Auschwitz!
I am constantly amazed at the depth and extent of anti-Semitism in Europe, and it’s getting worse fast. The media of Europe are as biased and blind as Hitler was.
Europe has now opened wide the door to masses of Quran-based Muslims. And instead of believing the truth about Islam, they believe their liars and deceivers in the media that Islam is a religion of peace.
Remember what the word Europa means – “wide open!” Europe is now wide open to Muslim migrants and wide open to her soon coming doom.
Do you think God is going to sit back and do nothing? Europe, your days are numbered, the writing is on the wall!
***Ezekiel 13:18 “...Will you hunt the souls of My people and keep yourselves alive?”
Europe is turning into “Pharaoh” and will pursue the fleeing Jews in many ways. Today the cry should be “Let My people go and do not pursue them.”
The “missionary” strategy of Islam:
●It is first to gain a significant presence in the target nation. At this stage the Muslims are tolerant and willing to blend in to a degree. ●Then they begin to make demands for their religious rights and their freedoms. ●As they grow from over 2% of the population, they begin recruiting from wherever they can. ●Above 5% they begin to become more militant with their demands especially regarding Sharia law. ●Above 10% of the population the militancy becomes greater including rioting and the destruction of Christian churches and Jewish Synagogues. ●Creeping Sharia law has never created peace in one single nation anywhere ever. All it has created is slaves of Allah.
Rape on demand:
Muslims are encouraged to live in the manner Muhammad did, who was a slave owner. The Quran allows for slave owners to have sex with their slaves. (Quran 4:24 and many others) “Slaves” extends to the capture and ownership of women in any conflict situation.
The funny thing is that Europe is now complaining about the massive increase in rape they have invited in! Amazingly, Europe is not only ignorant of the Bible, but ignorant of the Quran.
The strategy of God:
God’s word reveals His strategy for His people when they are in captivity, or are migrants, immigrants or have become residents in nations other than Israel. This would apply to all those in the diaspora (dispersion.)
►Jeremiah 29:7 “Seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace you will have peace.”
Contrast this verse above with the words below from the Quran!! Do you see the shocking, incredible difference? Never the twain shall meet!
Muslim immigration, shocking revelations:
The great end-time Trojan horse to end all Trojans is now in Europe with its leader, the mass media, the lying, doomed puppets of the devil.
Where you can’t establish Islam by force, immigration offers Muslims an alternative, with the same end in view. It is one of the means of conquest and domination of the world.
The purpose of Islamic migration is to supplant Quran-based Islam in those nations and ultimately to bring in Islamic domination and Sharia law. Mass Muslim immigration is Islamic expansionism.
Very few people are aware that Muhammad forbade immigration for personal gain or benefit. Muslims are forbidden from “integrating” with the host nation. But Muhammad taught that it was the “religious duty” of Muslims to spread Islam by immigration. The Muslim is permitted to “fake” integration for the purpose of fooling the host nation.
Here is what the Quran says:
► “I charge you to immigrate and wage jihad for the sake of Allah.” (Hadith 2863, the sayings of Muhammad.) Quran (Sura 8:74) “Those who believed and emigrated and performed jihad for the sake of Allah and those who gave you help are the true believers. They will receive forgiveness.”
Contrast this with the position of the Bible above in Jeremiah 29:7.
The purpose of Islamic migration is for subversion. It is for jihad (al Hijrah) to achieve ultimate domination of the world and to bring in world Sharia law.
Right now we are in the lull before the storm. The world and its possessed puppet masters, the media think they have done the migrants a humanitarian favour. Islam will soon press the big red button launching orchestrated jihad from within Europe.
The coming doom:
Europe has long been anti-Semitic and pro-Palestinian. Because of Europe’s resulting hardened heart and total spiritual blindness it has now opened the flood gates to its own doom.
Europe is sowing the seeds of its coming destruction now. Zeus, the god of violent weather is about to awake with storms like never seen before. Jihad is coming to Europe. Watch for the big red button!
Europe will very soon see other enormous catastrophes as God’s plans come to pass. We are about to see a Europe-led banking crisis and economic disaster hit hard.
Europe is in an existential threat from within right now like never before. You only have to turn on the news to see that it is crumbling from within. 28 nations and half a billion people are at the crossroads. What may emerge very soon is the prophesied 10-nation confederacy within the approximate borders of the ancient Roman Empire. This incorporates the borders of Europe as we know it, plus some eastern Muslim nations.
This will set the stage for the arising of the antichrist, the one-world government, the single world currency and the system of massive control all spelt out in the Bible.
I expect we will also soon see the wrath of nature and cataclysmic, catastrophic environmental disasters.
All this time, Europe will remain anti-Semitic, with a hardened heart towards God, bringing in more waves of judgement.
Europe has invited in the hunters of the Jews (Jeremiah 16:16). The Jews are responding. 8000 have returned from France alone. 700,000 Jews have applied to return to Israel in recent months. Europe has invited in the source of her own destruction.
How interesting that all of Europe’s military hardware, might and skill may become meaningless in the face of jihad, terror, suicide vests, knives and hand guns. And of course violent weather!
The humiliation of Europe:
Isaiah 30:1-3 “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; who walk to go down to Egypt (type of the world), and have not asked My advice, to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shadow of Egypt. Therefore the strength of Pharaoh shall be your shame, and trust in the shadow of Egypt shall be your humiliation.”
Isaiah 60:14 “Those who afflicted you (anti-Semitism) shall come bowing to you (Jews), and those who despised you, shall fall prostrate at the soles of your feet; and they shall call you, ‘the city of the Lord, Zion the Holy One of Israel.”
Zechariah 8:22-23 “Many peoples and strong nations shall come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the Lord. In those days, ten men of every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, ‘Let us go with you, (Jews) for we have heard that God is with you.”
The anti-Semites of Europe want the Jews out of their land. The Hamas leader said a few days ago, “We will remove the Jews from our land.” God has a different story and it will come to pass at the eternal regret of His enemies.
Job 12:23-25 “He makes nations great, and destroys them; He enlarges nations and guides them. He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, and makes them wander in a pathless wilderness. They grope in the dark without light. He makes them stagger like a drunken man.”
Europe may say “God, why won’t you just leave us alone?” God may say, “Europe, why won’t you leave My people alone? Do you think I haven’t seen your evil BDS Movement and your anti-Semitism and your favour to the enemies of My people? Shut up Europe, and prepare to meet your doom.”
Only God can give you a real love for the truth. Only God can change your heart and give you a passionate love for His plans and His people, Jew and Gentile. Only God can open your eyes. In fact the entire issue of Israel and the Jews really comes by a “birthing”. But you must move first in repentance.
It is repentance that softens your heart and opens the door for God.
Will Europe make right with God? The answer, tragically is no. Bible prophecy reveals that Europe will land up hook line and sinker in the heart and hands of the devil himself.
The good news is that individual European people most certainly can make right with God. Small groups of believers or churches that have not sold out to the god of the world can and must separate themselves from the spirits of Europe unto God.
There is an easy way to see if a European has truly repented. Do they still have anti-Semitic roots and feelings? Can they now bless Israel freely and willingly?
Psalm 29:10-11 “The Lord sat enthroned at the flood and the Lord sits as King forever. The Lord will give strength to His people. The Lord will bless His people with peace.”
