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 324: August 10th 2016
The drama of the Temple:
The drama of the Temple:
This is a highly controversial issue, full of incredible drama, symbolism and warnings! But it is also liberating. It is a major part of God’s prophetic plan for the close of the age and the next one!
The prophesied Third Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem is coming very soon. Don’t go there! Steer clear! Guard your heart! Don’t follow anyone who will lead you to the new temple in Jerusalem.
The Temple Mount was the choice of God for the temples. It began when David offered a sacrifice there; fire came down and consumed it. As a result he said, “Surely this is the house of God.” (1 Chronicles 21:26, 22:1).
When King Solomon dedicated the temple to the Lord, fire came down and consumed the offering. (2 Chronicles 7:1)
Revelation 13:13-14 (The beast or antichrist) “He performs great signs so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, and he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs...”
The coming Third Temple will be announced by fire, but this time it will be a satanic fire! The nations will fall for the delusion.
I tell you that the Third Temple will not be the house of God but the house of Satan! Untold millions will be deceived right here!
Although not inspired writing, we are told in the book of Maccabees 2:1-13, that Jeremiah the prophet said that the Ark of the Covenant would be unearthed in the last days and installed in a temple in Jerusalem and that fire would come down from heaven as a “confirming” sign.
But there is so much more to the temples, previous and to come that we must know and look into.
Who owns the Temple Mount?
Muslims claim that the Temple Mount is theirs. They claim that the Jews have no rights to it. The Jews claim that the Mount is theirs and was given to them by God’s own covenant. Catholic and other orthodox Christians claim that they have a right to a presence on the Mount.
So who is right?
2 Chronicles 3:1 “Now Solomon began to build the house of the Lord at Jerusalem on Mount Moriah, where the Lord had appeared to his father David...”
Nehemiah 2:19-20 (Nehemiah comes to Jerusalem and views the wall) “But when Sanballat the Horonite, 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.”
These verses above are so profound they need no explanation at all. Palestinians, Arab nations, Europe, mass-media, do you want to come against God’s revealed will? You are thieves and the writing of your destruction is on the wall!
Thieving from God is not very clever, but then what do you expect from these blind fools.
Denying the existence of the Jewish temples by Islam is the same as Holocaust denial!
Some organisations working for the rebuilding of the temple include:
●The Temple Institute.
●The Temple Mount Faithful.
●The Descendants of King David. Click HERE.
●Many in the Israeli Government and the recently constituted Sanhedrin are also calling for the rebuilding of the temple now.
The Third Temple is coming soon:
Amos 9:11 “On that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down, and repair its damages; I will raise up its ruins, and rebuild it as in days of old.”
Daniel 9:27 “He (antichrist) shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering, and on the wings of abominations shall be one who makes desolate.”
2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away (departure) comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or is worshipped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”
But what about the following two verses?
Revelation 21:22-23 “I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God almighty and the Lamb are its temple and the city (New Jerusalem) had no need of sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of the Lord illuminated it and the Lamb is its light.”
This verse above relates to the New Jerusalem in ages to come, which will not be upon the earth, but above it during the Millennium.
1 Corinthians 3:16-17 “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles this temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.”
This verse above relates exclusively to those who are born-again of the Spirit of God and no one else.
The purpose of the temples:
In one word it is holiness!
Every little detail of the construction of the Tabernacle, the Ark of the Covenant, the temple and even the instruments and temple implements, were to be made to 100% perfection according to highly detailed plans. All of this speaks of the holiness of God.
The Third Temple will contain a Holy Place, but without the presence of the Holiness of God.
That will be the key missing component.
The Third Temple will be a perfect example of modern unsaved man. It will represent mans attempt to be right with God, but with Satan ruling his life. The Third Temple will be a tribute to fallen man, to humanism, to failed religion, to all that is unholy.
Let me do a detour here to inform you that there are many who claim that the Ark of the Covenant has been found, or is hidden under the Temple or is in Ethiopia, or who-knows where. It makes no difference because the Spirit of God is not there! So even if it were to appear, it will be an empty shell.
It became a meaningless relic when the temple veil was torn by God from top to bottom on the day of the cross. It may still contain the Ten Commandments in stone, but as said, we now have the law in our hearts.
Jeremiah 3:16 “Then it shall come to pass, when you (Israel) are multiplied and increased in the land in those days says the Lord ‘that they will say no more, ‘The ark of the covenant of the Lord.’ It shall not come to mind, nor shall they remember it, nor shall they visit it, nor shall it be made anymore.’”
Please don’t pay any attention to the world’s biggest fraud and liar (proved to be so), the late Ron Wyatt, who claimed to have found both Noah’s Ark, the Ark of the Covenant, dried blood of Yeshua and numerous other things that were all a grand deception. Please don’t send me emails on this – look it up!!
Temples of stone:
The end of the road for the Ark of Covenant which contained the law written in stone was a temple building made of stone. It had its purpose, as does the law. But both ended in destruction, with the presence of God being transferred to the believer’s heart.
The temple in stone and the law in stone have similar meanings and implications and relate to a heart of stone, whereas the law now given in our hearts refers to the torn veil, and the empty temple. (Hebrews 10:16)
Bear in mind that a heart of stone goes to hell. (Ezekiel 36:26)
With the temple veil torn, an empty temple without the presence of God will be open to contain the presence of the world’s god - Satan. It will become a universal place of worship to the god of hell and will become a testimony to world-unity based on all that is unholy.
Acts 17: 24-25 “God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands, nor is He worshipped with men’s hands...”
The 9th of AV:
This year, the Hebrew 9th of AV falls on August 13th. That’s in a few days time. This day is called Tisha b’Av and commemorates the destruction of the first temple and the second which both occurred on the 9th Av. Other severe tragedies and catastrophes to befall the Jewish people have been added to the commemoration, the Holocaust being one of them.
As we approach this day again, could it be significant in relation to the new coming temple in some way? Maybe, we will have to wait and see.
The tearing of the veil:
The Holy of Holies was separated from the Holy Place with a thick veil, whose purpose was to hide, separate and divide sinful man from the presence of the most Holy God. In fact anyone entering this place, besides the High Priest, who had gone through a cleansing ritual before, and on the Day of Atonement, would be struck dead immediately by God.
When our Lord was crucified, as He died, the temple veil was torn from top to bottom, by a supernatural act. It was extremely thick and 60 ft high and torn from top to bottom. It was 30 ft wide and 1 inch thick. It needed an army to put it up. No man could tear a thing like that.
The fact that is was torn from top to bottom again points to a supernatural act of God.
This amazing miracle now left the Holy of Holies open and exposed for all to see and enter in. (Hebrews 6:19-20, Hebrews 10:19-22)
At the crucifixion, the temple veil was torn. At the Second Coming, the temple itself will be torn down as the earth quakes with a huge earthquake with an epicentre right under the Mount of Olives, overlooking the Temple Mount.
If I can put it this way: Those of the new temple have rejected the torn veil. But the veil is torn. So now all their sacrifices, offerings, prayers in the temple amount to crucifying our Messiah again and again.
The veil is torn...you can’t do it again and again. You can’t crucify our Lord twice! (Hebrews 6:6). Perhaps the Catholics and Anglicans should learn that lesson, because that is what they do in the eucharist! Every mass they partake in, including the Christ mass is crucifying our Lord again. Some of them may lean that lesson the hard way in the tribulation!
God does not dwell in a building and does not require, praying hands and priests to be dressed in pretty frocks wearing stupid hats called Mitres, dedicated to the fish-god. No priest stands between God and man. No priest can offer salvation. No priest is holy because he is a priest. No priest of any description is your “father”. (Matthew 23:9)
To presume all of the above is to un-tear the temple veil and to nullify the work of the cross!
Now everyone who had a heart of stone, and now has a soft, Spirit-filled heart, who wants to, can come into the glorious presence of God, unrestricted, with no priest anywhere in sight, and wearing a T-shirt and blue jeans. That’s why those still bound up behind an un-torn veil and in a pretentious building full of evil, priests, hate us.
It is only the work of the cross and the shed blood of the Lamb that “tears the veil.”
The High Priest could only enter through the veil with the shed blood of a sacrificed lamb. (Hebrews9:7)
Hebrews 6:19 “This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil.”
But be careful how far you take this amazing supernatural story. The eternal Holy of Holies (God’s presence) can only be entered by those with the sacrificial blood of the Lamb in their hearts. Outside of that (unbelievers) will still be struck dead and cast into hell at the presence of God.
You cannot stand in the presence of God without a torn veil in front of you.
The significance of the torn veil and the entrance into God’s presence is exclusively for those who have accepted and believe in the work of the sacrificial blood of our Jewish Messiah and His cross.
So, how do the Rabbis explain the teaing of the veil? They believe that the Roman Emperor, Titus removed it with the other sacred vessels when the temple was destroyed. The main point is that they reject the fact that it was torn from top to bottom by God.
Of course, this means that they reject the cross, as they do. This has massive implications for the Third Temple and the religion of the Rabbis. A Third Temple with an untorn veil or no veil speaks satanic volumes!
There are two massive, all-important messages here specifically for the Jews. Your exciting, end-time redemption draws nigh - very nigh! Secondly, your Rabbis and leaders who reject Yeshua the Messiah and the cross are far-removed, and hell-bound. Jews, please make the right choice!!
The Third Temple and dispensations:
Although the temple, like the law, had a universal purpose of indentifying God’s holiness, it is primarily for the Jews. Temple worship was destroyed at the start of the church age. The law was transferred from the temple to our hearts at the start of the church age.
We can say then that the coming Third Temple will again signal a dispensation change. This will mark the completion of the seventy weeks of Daniel.
It will be marked with the Third Temple. This will be the tribulation temple – in more ways than one!
The Third Temple will be a terrible demonstration of the fact the Jews at large; will still be in unbelief at that time. Their temple sacrifices will be a rejection of the sacrifice of Messiah and the torn veil. This is why they will experience ever increasing wrath at that time.
This is the “wrath-temple.” It is a rapture clock!
It is the rapture that is holding back this new doomed, temple of doom!
The Third Temple, Islam and the antichrist:
“The new temple will be a place of worship for all people!” Oh how sweet! The news media will cry out loud and long about that when time comes.
It is no accident that the Muslims claim the Temple Mount as theirs. It is no accident that the Muslim Dome of the Rock stands where the Jewish Temples once stood. It is no accident that Islam will be part of the new world order’s one-world religion. Jews (unsaved), nominal-professing Christians and Muslims will make up the central core of this evil, satanic, one-world religion.
Is it then any wonder or surprise that the antichrist, most probably a Muslim, will be able to walk into the new temple, unrestricted, to proclaim himself as God?
Today, The Temple Institute has made ready all implements, materials, convocations and even the Temple Priests for the Third Temple. They have drawn up the plans. They have the entire Temple ready and waiting for construction and operation.
But the Temple Mount is no longer, consecrated, holy ground! It is defiled and polluted with Islam. It is soon to be even more polluted, with interfaith religion and its desire for world ruler ship from that Mount.
O yes, the Third Temple is coming and it will be consecrated afresh, cleansed and prayed over by rabbinical priests. But they have no spiritual power. And then it will become intensely polluted by the antichrist himself at the half way mark through the tribulation period.
The deep satanic spiritual pollution of interfaith, Islam, Rabbinical Judaism, and nominal Christianity / Catholicism will all collectively exalt the Third Temple, but it will be a stench in the nostrils of God.
By the way, the Bible speaks of Jews who are not saved as the Synagogue of Satan. (Revelation 3:9)
Europe’s resistance to God is another nail in its coffin.
Europe’s desecration of God’s will, and disgusting, shameful condemnation of so-called Israeli settlements in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, the Golan and the West Bank, in effect hands the Temple Mount to the Palestinians.
Europe and the UN for that matter have in effect made a mockery of the outcome of the 1967 war in which Jerusalem (all of it) was returned to the Jews, in line with God’s word.
Europe and the UN have declared that East-Jerusalem, which includes the Temple Mount, as “occupied territory.” Islam, by numerous “fatwah’s “ has done the same.
Today, the unashamed goal of Europe and the UN is to make Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount, a world-religion capital, but given to Palestinian claims first.
Here is a powerful answer to Europe, the UN and all nations and people opposing God’s will and plans. You can add to this Psalm 83!
Isaiah 8:9-10 “Be shattered, O you peoples, and be broken in pieces! Give ear, all you from far countries; gird yourselves, but be broken in pieces. Take counsel together, but it will come to nothing; speak the word, but it will not stand, for God is with us.”
The destruction of the new Third Temple:
Many people, Jews in particular, will be horrified at that headline above. They’re waiting for and expecting the Third Temple to be built and I’m talking about its destruction!
The Third Temple will be built and soon, but it will be the shortest surviving temple. It will last for three and a half years only.
And who will destroy it? It won’t be the Muslims! It will be our Lord Himself at the Second Coming. Do you think our Lord will use the temple, polluted by inter-faith, Islam and the antichrist for His rule and reign for a thousand years? Never!
We don’t know this, but it’s also possible that the earthquake that will strike the Mount of Olives and surrounding areas at the Second Coming also knocks down the temple.
Zechariah 14:4 “In that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, making a very large valley; half of the mountain will move towards the north and half towards the south.”
The two verses that imply our Lord will return to the Mount of Olives and then proceed through the now-closed Golden Gate into the temple should be taken cautiously. If you read the context surrounding them, they refer to the “east gate” of the Millennium temple, not even in Jerusalem.
It’s an amazing fact that the dispensation of the law, the sixty nine weeks of Daniel, was characterised by two temples. The dispensation of the tribulation, the seventieth week of Daniel, will be characterised by a temple. Then we go into the Millennium and there is no temple on the Temple Mount anymore.
You have to be blind, deceived or plain ignorant not to see dispensations here.
The Millennium Temple:
This temple will not be built in Jerusalem on the Temple Mount. It will be built 16 miles or 25 km to the north out in the desert. It will not be built with regular methods. It will be built by our Lord Himself at the command of His word.
Someone once said, “Oh that’s a long way off, so we don’t need to be concerned with it.” What if the Millennium is only seven or eight years away!
Ezekiel chapters 40 to 48 describe the Millennium temple.
Zechariah 6:13 offers more insight into this temple.
This is a huge subject. I’ll be doing a separate edition on it soon.
Possible Temple scenarios:
We are racing towards the close of the age and the start of the tribulation period, which requires a temple in Jerusalem, at least at the half way mark through the seven years.
●One very real, possible scenario is for war to break out and the Dome of the Rock to be a “victim”, clearing the mount for the Third Temple.
●Another possible scenario is for that war, or the ongoing conflict between Arabs and Jews, to result in a peace declaration or covenant of some sort which would contain a peace deal involving the Temple Mount. This could be part of Daniel 9:27.
●Another possible scenario is for a world inter-faith organisation to create a deal in which the Temple Mount and coming temple is shared between the major religions and becomes the desire and hope of the nations, the bridge between religions.
Any of these or a mix of them are real possibilities.
The issue with this entire subject is that it all points to the fact that time is just about up. If all the other signs and pointers are before us, this means that we will see all these begin to take place very soon.
Beware: The appearance of the Third Temple is prophesied. It will be built very soon. All those under the law will run to it, accept it and venerate it. Beware, my Messianic friends. Some of you are under the law and you know it. You are on thin ice!
I took this picture in a weird and wonderful, beautiful spot in the enormous Makgadigadi Desert, called Kubu Island. This is an awe-inspiring, spectacular and strange place. It’s all 4X4 territory and then only if it’s not flooded. There are no roads facilities or infrastructure at all. This desert is over 20,000 sq km in size.

Shalom and grow in His Grace!
