Shabbat Shalom to all!
Seeing is not believing!
Message to committed Christians: Your presence in your nation is its light.
Isaiah 14:12 “How you have fallen from heaven O Lucifer, son of the morning and how you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations.”
In the verse above we see that one of the major desires of Satan is to weaken the nations. If he can do that, he has little obstruction to his big plans of disruption and control.
Satan was originally called Lucifer, which means “light bearer,” before his fall.
The same principle works in believers. We are the light of the world (nations) but be careful out there, if we fall we effectively weaken the nation because our light goes out.
Bear in mind that light always pushes darkness into retreat. Darkness can never push back the light, unless the light is not really light but darkness! (Luke 11:35)
There’s an old song that speaks of the things of the world growing strangely dim in the presence of the glory of the Lord. That is so true, but it works in reverse too. The things of the world become bright when there is no real glory of God.
There are many things that may leave you still a Christian, but will put your light out or make it dim and partially hidden. In the haziness and obscurity of dim light, devils and demons run riot.
Some factors that darken your light are: ●False or presumed doctrinal light. ●That which is of the spirit of error and pride. ●All forms of replacement theology, anti-Semitism will put your light out. ●Worldliness and imbedded sin will obscure your light. ●Ignorance of the truth is a sure way to be blinded. ●Church or even national traditions and customs can be a light killer (Not all are so.) ●The opinions of man, the world, your peers, friends and sometimes family, can be a hindrance. ●All forms of pride extinguish your light. That is pride of race, face, place, grace and more.
It is the light of God that gives sight. All other lights give sight of the material world.
Do you see the things not seen by the eye? Can you hear the things the not heard by the ear? (1 Corinthians 2:9) You see, what you see with your natural eye is temporary It will soon be gone. (2 Corinthians 4:18) What you see is therefore deceptive because it’s only partly real.
The world has eyes that cannot see and ears that cannot hear! (Jeremiah 5:21, 6:10, Psalm 135:16) Seeing is not believing! Believing is seeing!
The world is lost because it has ears that cannot hear. It needs ears of the heart! The world has eyes that cannot see. It needs eyes of the heart to see the kingdom of God and true light. They want to see and hear according to the wickedness of their fallen heart and of the world.
Sin, righteousness and judgement is what you must see and hear. (John 16:8) Your eyes and ears then become sensitive to God and His word.
The Spirit of wisdom and revelation is needed but is only known by revelation. (Ephesians 1:17)
Luke 24:45 “He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the scriptures.”
The world has made gods of what it sees and hears. That’s all from the voice of the fallen light bearer – Satan himself. This is the reason the world is against Israel. It just can’t see the truth.
Satan is increasingly producing voices of chaos, antagonisms and troubles in this world. He thrives on anarchy – that’s his best weapon for gaining control of the masses. The world thinks it can see clearly enough to fix its problems! That’s just why the world is destined for doom!
To be free from the knowledge and will of God is to be a prisoner of the knowledge of the world and the propaganda and proper evil of it. That’s the way to be a slave of sin.
There is a new heaven and earth coming where righteousness dwells. (2 Peter 3:13)
There is a new Babylonian world coming where wickedness and destruction dwells!
Being in right standing (righteousness) with God, and His way is deeply, heavenly refreshing with sensitivity to our Lord and majestic King.
Righteousness: Strong’s G1343, “Dikaiosyne”. Meanings: Acceptable to God, integrity, virtue, purity, holiness, correct thinking.
There are few people on this earth who do not take counsel from somewhere or someone.
Don’t be reasoned into being wrong because the counsel of the masses thinks they are right. They are building their own tower of Babel again.
Psalm 1:1 “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path with sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful.”
As the counsel of the ungodly comes into your life, so the counsel of God goes out.
Psalm 5:9-10 “There is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is destruction; their throat is an open tomb; they flatter with their tongue. Pronounce them guilty, O God! Let them fall by their own counsels...”
Psalm 26:5-6 “I have hated the congregation of evildoers, and will not sit with the wicked. I will wash my hands in innocence...”
Psalm 119:104 “Through the counsel of Your word I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way. Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
Jeremiah 15:16-17 “I found Your words and I ate them, and Your word was to me the rejoicing and joy of my heart; for I am called by Your name. I did not sit in the assembly of the mockers, nor did I rejoice. I sat alone because of Your hand, for you have filled me with indignation.”
How to be led astray:
- Ignore the necessity of being Spirit-filled, led and taught, with His inner witness.
- Don‘t discern between those of the Spirit of truth and those of the spirit of error.
- Give yourself to false prophets and those with a history of failed predictions.
- Just be a lazy slob and blindly follow what you’ve been taught without question.
- Exalt and elevate preachers and teachers, giving their words unchecked authority.
- Don’t check out and study the scriptures yourself; don’t pray over your study.
- Maintain an attitude of know-it-all pride. Go along the wide road with everyone else.
- Exalt church tradition and customs above God and His word and ways.
It’s time to be ready and let your light shine. Things are about to happen suddenly.
Pray for your light to shine brightly continuously. Pray for your nation to be open to light.
Edition 347: 18th January
7, 70 & 777 Unfolding!
7, 70 & 777 Unfolding
I did say that this edition would be on the “error of imminence”, but due to the urgency of the current events, this must take precedent.
The number seven is called the perfect number. It is the seal of God as found in numerous places in the Bible. It’s like the watermark of God. As always, don’t go overboard with these things. Numbers, signs and symbols should always be secondary to pure doctrine, but don’t go into the ditch on the other side of the road and throw it all out. Signs are important at the right time.
7 is important on its own. 70 is an important prophetic number as is 777. Each have their own meanings and applications.
I’ve reported before on the following, as have a number of others, but it bears repeating:
●2017 is the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, which paved the way for Israeli statehood. (100 is the number of promise.)
●2017 is the 70th anniversary of UN resolution 181 in 1947, again paving the way for Israel’s statehood in 1948. (70 is the number of the restoration of Israel, and is also seen many times in relation to punishment.)
●2017 is the 50th anniversary of Jerusalem being re-captured by the Jews in 1967. (50 is the number of the Spirit of God and Pentecost.)
►Donald Trump is the 45th US President. In Hebrew the gematria of the number is the word “Abi-albon” meaning “father of strength” (one of David’s heroes). 45 is also the biblical number of preservation. You can find more on this HERE and HERE.
►Some have pointed out the following in relation to Donald Trump: In his first day in office, he will be 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old.
2017 is the 70th jubilee since the Exodus, the 120th jubilee since Adam and the 40th jubilee since the cross. Yes, I know about the controversy of the timing of the jubilee. Some believe the last jubilee was last year, and some believe its timing is out by a year and will be over in the 2017 – 2018 time period. It’s interesting, but don’t put too much weight on the jubilees.
Numbers, glorious numbers:
Before we go further, let me explain the significance of the numbers in the rest of this article.
Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic, the original languages of the Bible, are alpha-numeric. This simply means that each letter of the alphabet has a numeric value. So you can in fact add up the numeric value of a word.
In the Bible numbers have meanings as well, which are derived from the uses of those numbers in the verses concerned.
Then when we come to Hebrew, we also have additional elements. For example the number “7” can be expressed like that or as “seven”. Then, by adding up the numeric value of each letter in “seven,” we get another meaning, which would be the gematria or the numeric value of “seven.”
On top of this, Hebrew contains pictograms within the letters and numbers. In other words each Hebrew letter looks in picture form like an object.
The picture at the top of this edition shows the number “zayin” (7), which is also a pictogram. It shows a crown on top of a sword.
God has done this. He has hidden many of these wonderful mysteries just below the surface for the diligent to dig them out.
Some of these numbers and meanings in scripture are so incredible and marvellous; they are an all out miracle, proving the veracity of the Bible.
1 Corinthians 14:40 “God does things decently and in order.”
The numbers 7, 70, and 777:
●The Hebrew number “7” is “Zayin.” The pictograph of the Zayin is remarkable. It has a crown on top of the base which looks like a sword. There is a straight line from the sword through to the crown. This is referred to as the light from God (crown) to man. So, “Zayin” represents the light of God and the sword of God towards man.
You can find more on Zayin HERE.
●The number “70” has a clear reference to Jerusalem (Jeremiah 25:11) Daniel 9:24 “Seventy weeks (of years) are determined for your people and for your holy city...”
The meanings of 70 are “completeness” and “judgement”. It is related to the punishment and restoration of Israel.
70 is also the number of nations and languages that were the origin of all nations of the world today. So, 70 is a reference to the nations of the whole world.
●777 has a number of meanings. It is associated with the genealogy of Yeshua.
The word Yeshua Messiah has the numeric value of 777.
The gematria of the words “God, heaven and earth” in the first verse of the Bible, adds up to 777.
The Hebrew sages don’t use the “thousand” part of the Hebrew year 5777. They simply say it is the year 777. So, this is the Hebrew year 5777 or simply 777 which ends on Rosh Hashanah in September.
Hebrew sages believe that this Hebrew year 5777 is the year of the sword, as mentioned above, but some of them also believe that this is the year of the “olive leaf”, believing that it is the year of the Messiah and world peace. I think all you can really say is that we are on the edge of many things playing out!
The unfolding of prophecy:
►Remarkably, the great war of Gog and Magog in Ezekiel 38 & 39, which many refer to as WW111, has the numeric value in Hebrew of 70! You can find much more on this HERE.
Do you see that the 70-nation UN meeting just ended in Paris, discussing the dividing of Jerusalem and Israel, may lead to the war of Gog and Magog very soon?
We are now just a few days beyond the “Fast of Tevet” (10th Tevet), which is a commemoration of Nebuchadnezzar’s siege of Jerusalem. This led up to the destruction of the Temple for the first time.
Bear in mind that Nebuchadnezzar was the king of Babylon. Therefore he was in fact king over the Jews for 70 years of captivity!
Ezekiel 37:27-28 “My tabernacle (temple) shall be with them (Israel); indeed I will be their God, and they shall be My people. The nations shall know that I, the Lord, sanctify Israel when My sanctuary is in their midst forever.”
Very few people understand what this verse above is actually saying! It is quite clear!!
My friends, the nations of the world, with many churches are ready to perform their fateful act of dividing Israel and Jerusalem.
Imagine being so incredibly stupid as to divide Israel for what will be very short-term, supposed gain, only to pay for your ignorance for eternity, while God’s will and ways continue “forevermore!”
Bear in mind that the Second Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed in 70 AD.
The 70-nation UN sponsored conference in Paris:
A few days ago (Friday 15th), 70 nations came together to decide what to do about ownership of Jerusalem and the age old Palestinian / Israeli conflict. The meeting ended up with no real substance to it and nothing new. It was just a bunch of taking hot-heads, seeking to delegitimize Israel and enthrone the Palestinians.
The much bigger problem though is what this meeting leads to. Firstly, it’s yet another brick in the wall of dividing Jerusalem and Israel. Their agenda is not a Palestinian state living in peace side by side with the state of Israel, but instead of Israel!
This spineless UN conference has already backfired in that the nations there have identified themselves fully with Satan and against God. And by the way, that goes for all the churches supporting the Palestinian cause above God’s.
The Paris 70-nation conference has produced a resolution that may be taken further at a later time.
But don’t jump the gun here. I’ve read the entire resolution which has been drawn up and is to be adopted. It really amounts to zero in terms of prophecy and just affirms the same old story of blaming Israel for everything.
There are no actions to be taken in the resolution. It’s just the re-affirming of the Two-State Solution and “need for a negotiated agreement” and all the same old hogwash.
But, we will watch to see what else this all leads to. One thing that is most certainly of importance is the timing of it all. If it leads to actual actions to be taken, which it may do, then it’s a different story.
Noah’s father speaks from the grave!
In the book of Genesis we see that Lamech (Noah’s father) was 777 years old when he died, which was 5 years before the flood. (Genesis 5:28-31). This can also be written then as 7775. Right now we are in the Hebrew year 5777. So here we have the number 7775 associated with the flood of Noah, which was the wrath of God on evil, and the mercy of God on Noah and his family and then the new dispensation which resulted.
The Bible says that the coming of the Son of Man will be “as in the days of Noah.” (Matthew 24:37)
7775 signalled a new dispensation. Will 5777 see a new dispensation, as in the days of Noah?
The number 7775 in Strong’s concordance is attached to the word “Shavah” which means “A cry for help.” If the world would sincerely cry for help from God now ahead of coming judgement, it would receive it, but it is crying for God to punish it in its rebellion!
The Rabbi’s believe that this year is the year of the sword, with some believing it is also the year of the olive leaf. So if we put them together, it was in fact the “sword” of God in the judgement of waters at the flood that produced the olive leaf and the new dispensation.
One thing the Rabbi’s are wrong about is that world peace, symbolised in the olive leaf, is not going to bring the Messiah onto the stage until the end of the tribulation.
Moving to divide, moving to secure:
We’re seeing some interesting moves right now!
The Vatican has recently opened an Embassy in East Jerusalem, which is the subject of disputed Palestinian territory. The Vatican has most certainly cast their lot in with the Palestinians and confirmed their enmity to God and His plans.
They are preparing for their role to divide Jerusalem!
And this applies to the other orthodox churches as well like the Anglicans.
Interestingly, Francis calls Abbas an “angel of peace.” In his explanation, just like the mass-media, he said that Abbas would be the mover and maker of peace.
In a reciprocal move, last week the Palestinians opened an Embassy right inside the Vatican. At the inauguration, the PA leader told Francis that Jerusalem is the capital of the Palestinians.
Did you know that the meaning of the word “pope” is “father” and the Bible forbids us to call anyone father! Did you know that the meaning of the word “Abbas” (PA leader) is “father?” So, here we have to fathers of error, deception working together!
So. Let’s just look at this again. These two “fathers” open Embassy’s in each other’s back yards, the one calls the other the peace making angel and the other calls out that “Jerusalem is ours”!
The Catholic church has begun its transformation into the tribulation-bound beast. No I’m not saying Francis is the antichrist beast, although I do believe he will become part of the beast trinity or at least some significant part thereof.
In case you were wondering, I have the utmost disrespect and contempt for the Catholic and other orthodox churches.
President Trump has indicated that he is going to move the US Embassy now in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem – a mighty symbol of identification with Israel’s eternal ownership of Jerusalem. He will move the US Embassy in solidarity with and to secure Jerusalem as Israeli property.
Do you see how quickly Jerusalem is becoming the centre of the world?
While the world tries to divide Israel and Jerusalem, God has brought Israel back to the land as one. Israel was divided between Judah and Israel, but in the regathering and return to the land, look what happens:
Ezekiel 37:16-17 “Son of man, take a stick for yourself and write on it: ‘For Judah and the children of Israel, his companions. Then take another stick and write on it, ‘for Joseph the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel, his companions.’ Then join them one to another for yourself into one stick, and they will become one in your hand.’”
Ezekiel 37:21-22 “Surely I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, wherever they have gone and will gather them from where they have gone to their own land; and I will make them one nation in the land...nor shall they be divided again.”
By the way, the verses above speak favourable of Israel’s “companions.” Who are they? It is the Gentiles, who are of God and His word. It is a reference to Christian Zionists.
Are you a companion of Israel and God’s will, word and ways? I hope you are, but if you are be prepared to stand as a hated minority. I know all about that first hand!
Your choice is God’s will and way, or the will, way and opinions of the scum organisation called the UN and its evil plans, and of course its spiritual leader – Satan.
What does it all mean?
●It means that God’s eternal peace treaty with Israel is under threat by Satan and his peace treaty.
●It means that Satan will soon create war so that he can make “peace” and deceive the world!
●It means we are about to see Jerusalem in conflict, the Temple rebuilt and the nations of the world becoming supernaturally charged with madness in relation to Israel like never before.
●It means the sword is about to fall.
●It means we are close to the veil of spiritual blindness lifting from the eyes of the Jews much faster.
●It means that the mass-media will become even more satanically empowered. It means that a great proportion of the church will fall for the multitude of deceptions out there.
●I expect to see things escalate quickly. Much prophecy still needs to be fulfilled, but it will happen fast now.
Any of these above-mentioned facts on their own, may not carry too much weight. But when combined and all put together in God’s giant blender – watch out.
You and I are called to be ready all the time. We are called to study to show ourselves approved unto God. We are called to keep clean from deception in all its forms. So it really doesn’t matter if all things are delayed. Be ready now and always.
You can ignore this if you want. The wise will not. This is a warning from God:
I warn you that we are now entering a time in which the spiritual conflicts and great deception around Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews will become so strong, powerful and intense that you will be sucked into an ever deepening decent, if you do not set your heart after God’s truth on these issues.
You must know, receive and believe all of God’s word on these vital issues now. This is the only way to safety.
Be warned: “God is not mocked” the world is about to learn many lessons very quickly – the hard way!
Some will not escape. They will become empowered by forces that they can’t see and didn’t even know exist.
Jeremiah 31:31-36 “Behold the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah...I will put My law in their minds, and write on their hearts; and I will be their God and they shall be My people...If those ordinances (the sun, moon, stars, roar of the seas) depart from Me says the Lord, then the seed of Israel will cease from being a nation before Me forever.”
This incredible verse above, speaks of God’s eternal will and plan for Israel. When last did your church minister preach and teach on this verse and others just like it?
If you want to mess with Jerusalem and God’s plans, you will get a lot more than your fingers burnt!
I took this picture of a magnificent kudu and a little impala in the Etosha Game Reserve, Namibia.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
