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

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!
Help in troubled times:
The US economy is strong, as are the major world economies, but we are seeing critical cracks in then all as they slow! Technical indicators are pointing to a world recession. The most reliable indicator is the US bond-yield curve inversion. I won’t go into details, because, it’s not our thing. It is a reliable recession indicator.
The timing of this lines up with so many other prophetic events, soon to come. Once a recession begins it escalates into many other areas.
A recession does not mean a market crash is on the horizon, although that’s always possible, based on sudden falling sentiment, which spreads like lightning. It means hard times are coming.
Why mention this? It is because these things affect the whole world, including Christians. Are you able to withstand coming troubles? Yes, the worst will be in the tribulation, but we are in the forerunner period now.
Many believers will be casting out economic recession demons, to no avail. Many will be asking why, why, why! It’s often a different story when your own family is involved. Are we as believers all family?
It’s difficult to recognise other believers as such, and as part of our very own family, with who we will be spending eternity. Through the new birth, we are brought together by the blood of our Lord.
Troubles in the world demand your attention and focus, but if you let them eat into you, they will damage you, discourage you, lead you astray and rob you of your coming reward. These troubles in the world will be temporary and will soon make way for a new glorious eternity!
The things of the Spirit of God are real and alive. You can’t think through to spiritual reality with your intellect or understanding, but you can and must see and get rid of the obstructions to the Spirit of God being released in and through you to other people.
God’s word – the truth, is your anchor and your hope. It is your reality and it is the source of your help and for others in trouble. It is His ancient word, a miracle and a mystery that is still so relevant today, in interpretation and application! What is amazing to me is that God’s word is so ancient, yet so true. It outlines the very reason why fallen modern man will reject it. It shows that modern man has another, modern gospel, chopped and changed to suite the sin-loving, compromised masses!
Ancient metal Bibles found in Jordan:
John 6:63 “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you, they are spirit and are life.”
Proverbs 23:23 “Buy the truth and do not sell it, also wisdom, instruction and understanding.”
Psalm 62:5 “My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him.”
Note the amazing things in the verses above: Truth, wisdom, instruction and understanding are essential in these days. The source is exclusively, the Spirit of God, turning words to life!
In the face of troubles, people run to all sorts of sources for help, including the occult. There they find comfort and relief from Satan himself, in disguise, for a short while – then he kills!
But people also run to stable believers for help, are you able to really help them in the things of God and the things that will matter for eternity?
Whatever remains untouched by the work of the cross and the Spirit in of God in you, remains untouched in others too. It is the way of the mystery of the work of the cross that draws people to our King and Lord. These, the broken ones, carrying their cross, are the beautiful ones in these days.
Psalm 42:7 “Deep calls under deep!”
You can do many good things in life, all devoid of the Spirit of God and amounting to a big zero.
2 Corinthians 4:10 “We carry around in our body the death of Yeshua, so that His life may revealed in our bodies.”
What a staggering verse that is? We carry death to produce life!
Have you thought of the fact you are walking containers of the mystery of the death of our Lord – salvation for others?
Romans 6:5 “If we have been united with Him in His death, we will also be united with Him in resurrection.”
Are you able to accurately help seeking believers on all the issues of Israel, Jerusalem, the Jews and the plan of God for them? I tell you, we might know these things well, but the great majority of believers worldwide are in the dark on this incredible and exciting subject.
As a result of their darkness they are vulnerable to be Satan’s “light.”
Edition 349: 1st February 2017
The Strategic Grand Plan of the Ages:
The Strategic Grand Plan of the ages:
In this edition I want to lay out before you some of the big issues of Satan’s grand plan of the ages and God’s Grand Plan of the Ages. Both are coming to a head right now and into the months ahead. I’ll look at the agenda’s and strategies that we need to be aware of now.
These are some of the big-ticket items for the soon coming close of the age.
There is great and growing danger out there, intensifying and already swallowing up many people into ever deepening deception. This is the time to know God and His word, like never before.
Satan’s major overall strategy is to destroy what God has done, is doing and will do. Of course he can never win, but he has and can cause great problems along the way, especially as his end approaches.
Satan’s strategy is to get the Christian to believe that he doesn’t need the gifts of the Spirit today. (I have a number of articles on this website on the lies of cessationism).
At this time, the attacks are intensifying and will become a lot more powerful very soon. The Bible describes the love of many believers “growing cold” and the “shipwreck” of the faith of multitudes in these end times.
Disarming the innocent is actually arming the guilty and opening the door for the works of the devil to flood in.
In the same way, ignorance of God’s word and casting down the spiritual gifts of warfare weapons is disarming the Christian in the face of a terrible spiritual onslaught.
If Satan can disarm the Christian he has basically won the battle over that person! Do you think Satan and his demons and disciples are going to lay down their weapons as their demise approaches? You have to be stark raving mad!
In the church, Satan’s big ticket items are ignorance of the Spirit-led word, deception and disunity.
God’s word warns all over the Old Covenant and the New of the dangers of these times specifically. Sometimes His warnings are direct and in your face and sometimes hidden in signs, symbols, parables, poetry and prophecies.
God’s innuendos and insinuations are no whispers of illusion and not to be taken lightly.
The power of prophecy shows you what’s coming but also calls the believer to repentance, correction, action and then ultimate victory.
The Deceiver and the deceiver’s disciples:
Many people don’t deliberately set out to deceive others, but they don’t realise that they are blinded to and in their deception. They don’t realise that they are doing the devil’s work, while in this ignorance.
But there are many with ulterior motives out there who do set out to deceive. They are sensation seekers, manipulators out to get the approval of man, to boost their self importance and their bank accounts. Those operating in this world of self-importance and self-exaltation are always driven by the god of this world and powerful demonic forces – always!
Satan has a host of his deceiving disciples inside and outside of the church. Satan knows who the gullible are and he always targets them.
Another big reason why so many people get deceived is that they are cursed. They have entertained demons, witchcraft, Satan-worship and the like and are not free from its lingering effects. Others are simply under generational curses, which they don’t even know exist. Others have a natural propensity to always be drawn into false teachings or the beautiful side of evil and get themselves cursed.
I strongly suggest that you look up and watch a video or two of Derek Prince’s excellent teaching: “From curse to blessing.”
Deception throws your balance off. You may be saved, but you are unbalanced and can never fulfil God’s wonderful plans for you.
Some of today’s great deceptions and errors include:
● The preaching of heaven without hell.
● A cross-less Messiah.
● A lack of teaching of the fear of God.
● Salvation without repentance.
● Thinking that you’re above correction and rebuke.
● The arrogance of thinking that you can live without knowing God’s word.
● Spirituality devoid of the power that only comes in the baptism of the Spirit.
● Resistance and rejection of God’s plans for Israel.
● The love of self, the world and the demonic.
● Tolerance of all things right and wrong.
Deception is proof supreme of a person who does not know God and has no fear of God.
Deception is always condemned in the Bible. It is the number one major sign in these end-times. It is rooted in the spirit of error which is cursed! It has a nasty habit of enslaving its victims. It’s like a dark cloud over them causing them to make the wrong choices and decisions. It ultimately leads into the grip of Satan.
Many people are too afraid to break out from the chains of crowd bias and what the majority thinks and does. They are influenced, led and bound by the approval and fear of man.
If you have not discovered it by now, true biblical Christianity is for the brave, the strong and the pure radical.
Satan’s agenda is to brand you if you don’t fit his mould. You can see this in the mass-media. For example: Those who oppose homosexual marriage from a biblical point of view are branded “homophobic.” The word is immediately given negative overtones and used literally as an identifying brand.
Basically anything that is not in line with the agenda of the media is branded. A shocking but true example is this: The media freaks out when anyone condemns the Quran, but it scorns those who believe the Bible!
The media wants to form your thinking and change your actions. The media wants you to be one of their products – a product of their boss, Satan.
I count it an honour to be branded by them!
If you were to read the book of Acts from beginning to end, you would be shocked to see how the early disciples dealt with deception and the attacks of the devil. The situation today, according to the Bible, is worse, and the church does nothing but appease the devil.
How to be free from deception:
Deception and being deceived is no small issue. Unfortunately, if you have been a victim of major deception, it will always hang like a mist over you. You are “tagged” so to speak. Of course you can get free in the truth of the Lord’s word, but the “mist” remains, which is clearly seen by others and not yourself.
To be free, firstly, admit to yourself that you are ignorant of God’s word. Repent of your ignorance and under the inspiration of the Spirit of God, in the Fear of God – “Study the word to find yourselves approved.” (2 Timothy 2:15)
There is no substitute for knowing your Bible thoroughly in these days. If you have not spent many years separated unto intensive study of the Bible, you are not qualified to be in any form of ministry.
Learn what true doctrine is and you will spot the false.
You will know the deceivers by their fruits. Listen to the way they speak, the way they subtly elevate themselves. Listen to their manner of speech. They use manipulation, shouting, and phrases like “I’m telling you this” as though they have God’s authority behind them. They say, “God told me.”
They are not open to rebuke, repentance or correction. Many are pure false prophets and refuse to get out of ministry immediately as they must.
They try to get you to recognise God’s authority in them. My friends, you either have it or you don’t! You can’t manufacture it. If you really have God’s authority in your life you will be hated before you will be accepted! But it will be seen and known by the fruits.
Be careful of people always after new, secret revelation with personal, private interpretations. Any new doctrines or interpretations must find agreement with other mature disciples.
Perhaps the greatest reason why there are so many deceivers out there is because the church is so terribly divided.
Deception within the church promotes confusion within the church. It elevates the deceivers and those who propagate the deception further. They must be struck down and thrown out of the church just like Jezebel of old.
This is the season of great things in our Lord. It is also the season of great deception and its twins - ignorance and arrogance.
Hold the cross high in your life. Embrace it, take it up daily and let it crucify you, destroying the sin in your life. It is only the cross and shed blood of Yeshua that truly cleanses from all sin including deception.
The spirit of liberalism:
Liberalism is one of the big strategies of Satan in these days.
Liberalism is a spirit...an evil spirit!
Liberals have to be controllers to further their causes. They are sore losers when they can’t get their way.
Liberals are masters of deception and they mostly don’t even know it. Their underlying beliefs and philosophies are very noble and “good”.
I hope you have learnt by now that human good is unacceptable to God. Good must go through the cleansing work of the cross!
The heart of the liberalism is equality. That sounds good, but what they mean and how it always works out is equality between right and wrong, sin and holiness. Equality must always be forced into being and controlled.
In trying to justify and make right and wrong equal, they end up glorifying sin and putting down holiness and righteousness.
The enemy is globalism, socialism and equality as opposed to freedom, which exalts choice and independence.
Crowd-speak and crowd-confirmation bias is very powerful if you are weak and ignorant of God’s word and without His spiritual gifts. I could name you many people who I know personally that have been swallowed up by the devil when they fell for the voice of the majority.
The biggest lie perpetuated by the liberals is peace comes by appeasement of the evil of the devil. Of course they don’t see their ways as evil, they can’t see because God has blinded their eyes. They think that what the Bible calls evil is just human rights.
The liberal left in the church:
The liberal Christians are especially dangerous, because they must deny the power of the cross, which is the instrument that separates between sin and holiness.
What follows is an indictment on liberalism generally and specifically in the church. Once you read this, your only way forward as a liberal is repentance, or to continue under the dark cloud of the devil himself into ever-deepening curses.
If you have any traces of these things, you need to root them out of your life with a passion!
The prime goal, motivation and principle of the liberal left, including the mass-media of the world, is that equality is the fundamental principle of life. This is justice they say! The left always believes that inequality is evil.
This ignores and gets rid of the real reasons for inequality, poverty, failure, and the like, which is spiritual. It is a result of curses, of sin and wickedness. This is why secular psychology always compounds your problems and doesn’t help you. It’s because they reject sin, curses and ultimately the devil.
Globalism means no borders. To go with the full idea of globalism there must be a borderless value-system and morality-system decided upon by the gods of globalism, the mass-media and the political liberals.
A globalist world is a cloak of camouflage for the devil to walk right in, undetected.
To go with the idea of globalism, there must be a universal religion, an inter-faith religion, which can mix in with the globalist world view and its values. The only ones excluded from this would be those who are truly born again of the shed blood of Messiah and with the separating work of the cross evident in their lives.
God is not removing borders. He is raising borders! Acts 17:26 “God has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation.”
Physical borders are being referred to in the verses above, but it is the cross and our spiritual warfare that is our “border and defence.”
The inter-faith movement destroys these godly borders and blends and merges together all ways to God, sin, holiness, wickedness, and evil into one big melting pot. What they don’t know is that they will be melted in the fury of God in the tribulation!
You can’t have world peace outside of the cleansing work of the cross!
You can’t have peace with sin. Sin is alive and forever marching forward in ever greater leaps and bounds. It is the great destroyer. Sin dwells in the blood of mankind – the blood of Adam. So you must get rid of sin.
You have one of two ways to get rid of it. You can get a blood “transfusion”, infusing the sinless, pure blood of Messiah into your heart...which we do by faith.
Or you can simply rename sin and call it good. You can rename it as the media does and call it an acceptable human behavioural right. You can just say that it’s okay.
Do you think that renaming it deals with the sin problem? You see, the blood of Adam has the curse of God flowing in it. Just like Adam’s curse spread to all of nature, seeing it spring up with thorns as a result, so the cursed blood of Adam in every human is full of the “thorns” of sin.
Mark 7:21-23 “From within, out of the evil heart of men, proceed evil thoughts...all evil things come from within and defile a man.”
How tragic it will be for all these globalists, when they find out that the world peace they were working for gets totally destroyed by God; and God Himself brings in world peace in the Millennium, on the wings of all things truly pure and holy...all things that have gone through the cross!
The fulfilment of Bible prophecy brings one shocking truth to everyone. It means eternal judgment is near – very near. Time is almost up.
Do you know why most people reject eschatology, end-time teaching and Bible prophecy? It’s because it all means that God is a judge and judgment is coming. People like a happy little gentle Jesus they can control and put away in their back pocket when not needed. People like the Lamb but not the Lion of the tribe of Judah.
Christian ministers love to preach on the Lamb and ignore the Lion, as if that will make the Lion go away!
Today we are seeing the radically different ideologies of the people begin to clash, and clash they must. The age-old strategy of the devil is to clash with God in whatever ways he can. The pressures being brought to bear are having a very powerful effect right before our eyes.
Do you know the toothpaste tube law? When you squeeze it, what’s inside comes out! All these pressures arising today are identifying just who is who in the zoo. The pressure is also “discovering” the heart of many so-called Christians. It is showing them up as true disciples of the devil, hell bound while they think they are serving God.
What is coming?
Psalm 2:2-3 “The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against His anointed, saying, ‘Let us break their bonds in pieces.”
Psalm 1:1 “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law of the Lord.”
The nations will conspire to get rid of God’s ways. It’s coming soon.
Globalism is coming. Trump may force it back into retreat for a while, but it will be a short while. Does that mean Trump must change his tune? Most certainly not! It means that he could be overthrown or forced out somehow.
There will be a global economic and religious system in operation in the tribulation. You can’t stop it. It is Satan’s last stand.
A peace system or covenant of some sort with Israel and “the many” will come about. (Daniel 9:27) You can’t stop it – it is coming. That will bring the tribulation period to the world and the rapture of the church.
The above factors are coming. They are the main big items of Satan’s strategy and agenda for the near future.
Ultimately, all of Satan’s plans will be destroyed in great judgement and all of God’s plans will endure. Don’t you think it’s wise to get on the winning side?
It’s very easy to let your focus on knowing and pursuing God slip away in the face of all these pressures and multitudes of opinions, but don’t do it.
Great and exciting times are coming. The world will soon erupt in fury, and God’s word will go out. Right now we are seeing the clash of the cultures of Satan and God arising.
We are heading for the days the prophets of old looked forward to. Great and terrible days are coming soon.
Matthew 13:17 “Many prophets and righteous men desired to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear and did not hear it.”
It’s time to activate, awaken and ignite the fire of God’s Spirit in your heart to deal with the fiery darts of the devil.
Truth is pure, holy, secure, loving and fulfilling, because it cleanses and makes you right. It makes you 100% right. It’s only hated by those led by Satan.
Do you know how nice it is to be right? Okay, not from a pride point of view. It is so good to be on the winning side! And that means the winning side with God, His word which is truth, and with Israel.
The winners are clean, pure, holy, true and right and will be full of glory forever!
I took this picture of the orchid using the light-paint technique. I laid the orchid on a mirror at night outside, sprayed with water, set the shutter to open for 2 minutes and “painted” with the light of a little halogen torch, in front and behind.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
