- US is to impose sanctions on Turkey for their action in Syria. This as the Kurds call on Russia and the Assad regime for help. Bear in mind that this stage of the war broke out on Yom Kippur, the day of the anniversary of the Six-Day War, which was essentially about getting Jerusalem back into Jewish hands.
- Although the US withdrawal from Syria has thrown the region into chaos, from a biblical, prophetic point of view, we are seeing an alignment of prophetic wars and their involved nations, all lining up. These are the wars of Syria / Damascus, (Isaiah 17) Gog & Magog (Ezekiel 38 &39 and Psalm 83. There are 10 nations mentioned in the Psalm 83 war and nine nations in the Gog / Magog war. Some of the nations overlap indicating that this could all be one big war.
- Russia comes in to fill the void left by the US in Syria.
- Lightning strikes mosque on the Temple Mount as The Feast of Tabernacles gets underway. (BIN 16th October)
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.

Jeremiah 8:6, 9 “Everyone turned to his own course... Look the false pen of the scribe certainly works falsehood...The wise men are ashamed, and dismayed and taken. Behold, the have rejected the word of the Lord; so what wisdom do they have.” (Media)
Isaiah 30:1 “Woe to the rebellious children, says the Lord, who take counsel, but not of Me, and who devise plans, but not of My Spirit, that they may add sin to sin.” (Media)
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah and to identify the rift, and the needed restoration. There is much in the church that needs to change before it can be fully reconciled with the Jew. Likewise, changes in Jewish thinking are also needed.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
The amazing feast season:
We come now to the end of the feast season for this year, with the last of the seven feasts Tabernacles (Sukkoth) beginning on Sunday 13th October.
This report is an overview of the seven feasts, and what is of major importance, and what it all points to in the near future, prophetically.
The seven feasts contain the four spring feasts and the three fall feats, with the Feast of Pentecost in the middle.
The Spring Feasts are Passover (the cross), Unleavened bread (holiness), First fruits (resurrection) and Pentecost (the church age). These four feasts occur in quick succession because the historic events of the cross through to resurrection and the coming of the Holy Spirit occurred in quick succession. (Keep that in mind)
The Fall Feasts are Rosh Hashanah (Trumpets.) Yom Kippur (Atonement), Sukkoth (Tabernacles.) These three fall feasts have not yet had their prophetic fulfilment. They also occur in quick succession of each other.
Rosh Hashanah begins the time period known as the “days of awe,” which refers to the solemn period of introspection, judgement and new beginnings.
Yom Kippur occurs eight days after Rosh Hashanah. It symbolises divine judgement and forgiveness, so that the individual may be cleansed of sin. In fact, in practice it is a day of fasting. It is the most solemn of the feasts of the Lord.
The Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkoth), occurs five days after Yom Kippur. This feast commemorates the historic original Exodus from Egypt into the wilderness. Prophetically it points to the coming spiritual exodus of the Jews from the Egypt, which is the world – to their Messiah and their eternal dwelling with Him. Temporary shelters are built symbolising Israel’s temporary dwelling in the wilderness on the way to The Promised Land and prophetically to the Millennium.
Many people especially the Catholics, reject the feasts and many change the order in violation of Leviticus 23:4 (Amp) “These are the set feasts or appointed seasons of the Lord, holy convocations you shall proclaim at their stated times.”
The feasts are permanently “set” in the times God has stated for them.
Christians do not need to celebrate the feasts in a legalistic manner, but we must at least identify with them and know well the major, important messages contained in them. (It is a blessing to celebrate them). You may not disregard their prophetic importance or change the order.
The feasts are not for the Jews only. The Bible calls them the Feasts of the Lord. But think about this: If you, as many do, say that the feasts are for the Jews only, then you have to say that the events of the cross are for the Jews only! Sorry Reverend Dumbish, you can’t cherry pick what suits you.
Amazing patterns in the Feasts:
There are many who teach that the rapture of the church will happen on one of days of Pentecost, because of certain associations of the rapture with Pentecost. They are all wrong.
Before we go any further please have a very good look at this diagram above.
I have pointed out before that Pentecost is a trumpet-less feast. The final three feasts are all associated with trumpets. The rapture is associated with trumpets. The rapture can only be on a Feast of Trumpets. There are many other reasons. But consider this:
I have mentioned the time periods between the feasts (diagram), for a good reason.
The time period between the first feast, Passover (the cross) and Pentecost (The church age), is very short. Then from the Feast of Pentecost to the next one, Rosh Hashanah (trumpets) is a long four months. That time period between the spring feasts and the fall feasts is called, “The long hot summer.” We are right now at the very end of the long hot summer, which ends with Rosh Hashanah (trumpets) and the final two in quick succession.
The reason for the long hot summer is because the church age is a long period of time compared to the time intervals between the other events, signified by feasts.
Do you see why the rapture can’t occur on a Feast of Pentecost? No it can’t - it just doesn't fit! The Feast of Pentecost was fulfilled by the start of the church age. It has been prophetically fulfilled. We are now at the very end of the long hot summer! There is no such thing as a feast having two prophetic fulfilments.
If the rapture has to happen on a Feast of Pentecost that would mean that the previous feast, Firstfruits, would have been fulfilled by the start of the church age! That would throw everything out of sync and make them all nonsensical.
It is most important to understand that the first four feasts, Passover to Pentecost were fulfilled by the events of the cross and the coming of the Holy Spirit. In terms of prophetic fulfilment these four feasts were and are for the born-again church exclusively.
Now as we come to the final three feasts a great, dramatic switch takes place. The coming fulfilment of these final, fall feasts are fulfilled by Israel and are for Israel.
Rosh Hashanah starts the tribulation; Yom Kippur will be fulfilled by the judgment of the wrath of God, and Sukkoth by the end of the tribulation, Second Coming and Millennium.
The church is not awaiting the tribulation, judgment on sin. That’s a done deal – at the cross. The church is not awaiting the tribulation and the wrath of God. The church is not awaiting the Second Coming. We will be returning with our Lord at that time. That’s all a done deal through the cross!
So the application and fulfilment of the fall feasts can only relate to Israel in the tribulation. The first four feasts are within the “mystery” that is the church and the three final feasts are outside of the mystery which is the church.
This is one of many reasons why Rosh Hashanah has to see the removal of the church, ending the church age and starting the tribulation.
This Rosh Hashanah went by uneventfully, but not Yom Kippur, which is also the anniversary of the Yom Kippur War of 1967 in which Jerusalem was restored to Jewish control. Now on this Yom Kippur, we saw the actual invasion of northern Syria by Turkey begin – on the very day! This will, no doubt lead to the Isaiah 17 war and other prophesied wars into which Israel will be dragged in.
Do you see how amazing this is? Do you see how accurately and well the whole gigantic story is spelt out and plotted? How accurate the Bible is.
And the Catholics and their half-baked masses get rid of the feasts and replace them with the unholy, occult, pagan, satanic, pig-eating feats of Easter and Christmas, which have no prophetic message at all.
Bear in mind that Bible calls the Feasts of the Lord “Holy convocations!” Pagan practices that are world-based, originating in Babylon are all cursed!
Godly wisdom, like gold is the purest, oldest form of genuine wealth there is. It is an immense store of value that is indestructible. It pays great dividends! Follow those who have it and beware of those with a handful of glittering fool’s gold.
►There is a very interesting biblical alignment between these seven feasts and the seven mysteries of the Bible, which I’ll touch on in the new edition.
Edition 353: March 1st 2017
Sky signs, earth signs, heart signs!
Sky signs, earth signs, heart signs:
The Bible talks of many end-time signs in the sky relating to our Lord’s coming. It speaks of numerous signs on the earth and in the world. It speaks of the condition of the heart of man in these times, both of the saved and the unsaved.
This edition is to inform you, help you, bless you and warn you of the pitfalls and dangers now and in the short time ahead, which are all escalating and intensifying.
Impending, ominous, doom looms large for many, and they can’t see it. At the same time, great joy, glory, majesty, honour, triumph and exaltation from our Lord is fast approaching for many.
Signs are to warn us, but also to show us which way to go. Signs are not to be ignored as most of the church does today, thanks to their blind guides. But we must not get the signs wrong either and go off in the wrong direction.
Thankfully we have seen that the Bible signs and prophecies that have already come to pass and been fulfilled, have done so perfectly with not one miss. So we can absolutely trust every word. If we are on the right road, it will be seen and be evident in the hearts of those on the journey.
The hearts of those who are right with God and on the right road will be full of good fruit and their lives will in fact be a banner and a sign to the world as well.
A bad or wrong heart will absolutely get you to see the wrong thing in the signs and go the wrong way, taking others with you.
1 Chronicles 26:16 (Temple Gatekeepers) “...At the West Gate, on the ascending highway you shall have watchmen opposite watchmen.”
Psalm 119:148 “My eyes are awake through the night watches, that I may meditate (know) on Your word.”
What is most important is to know and understand that we are to be watchful for all the signs. We are to know the signs in the sky, the signs in the world and in our hearts!
There is a very great danger evident in so many right now. I’ve mentioned it before. It is that too many are putting all their eggs in one basket. Far too many are looking at the coming signs in the sky, specifically the Revelation 12 sign, with tunnel vision.
If the earth and world signs are not running parallel to the Revelation 12 sign, as we approach the time – forget any message in the sky!
I am watching the Revelation 12 sign cautiously. I have not thrown it out, but I see some very real dangers that many are simply ignoring.
Personally, in the past I’ve looked at, and presented you with rapture-time scenarios and possibilities. With every one, I’ve said that they are possibilities and, if memory serves, I’ve also said just what I’m saying here now: All the ducks must be lined up in a row!
Amazingly, so many in the past have found this or that great secret as to when they think the rapture will be, and held to it right up to the day – but the other main signs have been missing! They all end up with a bit more than egg on the face!
I recently saw a video clip by some fool-Jezebel type woman who claimed that Nibiru would hit the earth this last Christmas day, but it would be okay because the rapture would happen right then too.
The incredible thing was that so many deceived, blind, fools bought right into her satanic garbage.
When something is of our Lord, there will be confirmations in the Bible itself as well as amongst certain types of mature believers. I can’t stress how important this is.
Let me start by offending many. If you look at those who confirm, accept and promote the Nibiru / Planet X deception, you are more gullible than you can imagine. Only a certain type of gullible, person falls into those traps with an occult source.
Most of the Nibiru supporters have no idea of the occult origins and involvement.
Many people are also falling into the trap of “private, personal interpretation”, relating to many other things, which is not only wrong, but forbidden in 2 Peter 1:20-21.
Look for what finds acceptance and bears witness with mature believers with a track record of stability and endurance. Beware of that which changes long accepted, Bible-proven interpretation. That's not to say a new revelation can't come along, but if it's of God it will be confirmed by the right people.
The Revelation 12 sign dangers:
There are a few big problems with the general interpretation of and application of the Revelation 12 sign, which require a lot of explanation, so I won’t go into it all now.
The biggest issue of all lies in the fact that the “great sign” of Revelation 12 may well turn out to be a supernatural sign and event in the sky and have nothing to do with any computer program called Stellarium or any other.
Many say that the Bethlehem star was a comet. I reject that. Many say that the darkness that fell when our Lord was crucified was an eclipse. Since when do eclipses last for nine hours? Both were supernatural events.
People don’t like that idea, because it takes them out the picture, and they like to have a natural, physical explanation for everything, so that they can put it to rest in their simple minds.
So, what I am saying is – be careful out there, don’t put your entire trust in one thing that may or may not turn out as expected.
I have said and will say again and again that all the other signs must be in place, and then we’ve got it – not before or without them all lining up.
The earth signs:
I have mentioned these signs in previous editions, so this is a brief overview of what must be in place at the same time as the sky signs.
By the way, the Bible says “I will not be negligent to remind you always of these things, though you know them...” (2 Peter 1:12) So, repetition and hearing things a few times is a good method of learning!
●A pre-tribulation rapture requires the start of the tribulation period as a new dispensation at the same time. There is no inter-dispensational time period – that’s biblically impossible.
Therefore we must have some sort of international peace agreement on the table ready for signing. That is a major world-sign. (Daniel 9:27, Daniel 11:21, 1 Thessalonians 5:3)
This coming peace treaty must be new and not some old agreement revived, as many teach. It must be new because it is a seven-year agreement. No other, like the Oslo Accord, or any other, was specifically a seven-year agreement.
All other older peace agreements are null and void because they were never ratified and would have to be re-negotiated, because so much has changed since.
There will be no rapture and no tribulation start without this major world-sign in place, no matter what any sign in the stars or anywhere else points to.
●We must see the ten-nation European confederacy with an eastern and western leg in place or at least close to being formed. It is required by prophecy soon into the tribulation.
●We must see the emergence of a one-world, one-currency, and one-religion system. These things don’t happen overnight. They are tribulation events, but must be at least in sight, being prepared at the tribulation start.
●We must see the preparations for the building of the Third Temple on the Temple Mount. It is required at mid-tribulation, so must be in sight well before.
There is very little time left for all of these signs to appear. Yes things can happen fast, but they need to happen very, very fast.
There are numerous other signs that need to be in place too.
Signs in the heart of man:
Proverbs 27:19 “...A man’s heart reveals the man.”
Perhaps the biggest end-time sign in the heart of man is pure deception!
A soft, broken and teachable heart is a pre-condition for seeing correctly and being led into all truth.
The end-time heart signs revealed in the Bible are: People being in love with themselves, in love with money, despisers of the ways of God, superficial, filled with great continuing and steadily worsening deception.
People will be worshipping the gods of Babylon and Baal and all its offshoots. People will ignore, or be ignorant of the word of God, even though it’s more available now than ever before, and is right in front of them!
A big and real end-time sign is more and more people becoming more and more involved in the occult, witchcraft, fortune telling, spiritism, sorcery, and the like. (Deuteronomy 18:9-12).
The Bible is the source of the signs we are interested in. But there are different levels of Bible understanding.
●Firstly there is the dead-letter version, which the Bible itself describes as spirit-less understanding. (2 Corinthians 3:6). This way has produced all the divisions we have in the dead denominational churches.
●Then there is spirit-led and informed understanding and interpretation, which is absolutely necessary. This is where our Lord proclaims that “He will show you things to come.” (John 16:13).
●Then there is the understanding coming from the living words of the living God speaking now in your own heart, which is only available to those who qualify and meet the conditions.
Job 28:12-28 “Where can wisdom (of and from God) be found? And where is the place of understanding? Man does not know its value, nor is it found in the land of the living. Behold the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom, and to depart from evil, that is understanding.”
Proverbs 9:10 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”
Psalm 25:14 “The secret counsel of the Lord is with those who fear Him and He will show them His covenant.”
Today we are in a world with no fear of God. The result is ignorance of God, presumption, man-made doctrines and idiots with no revelation knowledge of God.
No one can know God without the fear of God and this has many evidences in your life. In many respects, the fear of God compares to taking up your own cross. Today many have removed the cross and others have modified it to suit themselves.
The cross of self-denial is before all believers. You can take it up or flee it.
Cross-less Christianity is a modern curse and a sign of hearts being far from the living God.
In all of our hearts there is a throne of pride and a cross lying on the ground in front of us. You have to get off your throne and bow down to pick up the cross.
We must go through the soul-agony of loss of all our ideas and idols. We must become detached and removed from our self-will and exaltation. We must be silent before God and shut up, before we can know and speak His revelation-word.
To really encounter the living God is shattering. It breaks you down, so that He can lift you up without all your garbage, presumption, sin and un-holiness.
Job 42:5 “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my (spiritual) eye sees You and I abhor myself and repent in dust and ashes.”
We are entering a time of universal darkness, emptiness, barrenness and dryness. But there are those who hunger and thirst for the purity, holiness and righteousness of God. They will be filled.
Self and sin and the world’s ways is the veil that hides the face of God. Only the cross breaks these enemies in our lives.
Many want to be saved but won’t surrender fully. They end up as twilight Christians half in the shadows. Their sick religion offers plenty and demands nothing.
The truth they have soon erodes away as it must into the mist of this universal darkness and a religious, hazy half-light. It is like lukewarm light! It will poison and kill you!
The more at home you are in this world, the greater your problem and the greater the work you will have to do to die to it.
Many of today’s “successful” preachers are failures and leading others to failure. They teach that a Ferrari is valuable.
In many cases, the problem is not so much the signs or the content of the message, but the messenger! They are not messengers of the cross! Many are superficial frauds, looking for the approval of man. I always automatically reject the messages from these types, without question.
Most times I can tell in the first sentence whether a person is to be switched off or not.
Israel as a signs:
***Isaiah 66:19 “I will set a sign among them (Jews)...they shall declare My glory among the Gentiles.”
The “sign” in the verse above is the miracle people, the Jews themselves! This sign has other implications as well, which I won’t go into now, except to say that it relates to war of Gog and Magog). I’ll share more on this another time.
Here we have a magnificent, far reaching verse, with so many dramatic implications attached to every word!
Do you know that the many fulfilled prophecies relating to Israel are a great sign in themselves? (Isaiah 11:12) Israel’s birth, Jerusalem’s restoration, the Second Exodus, the land never to be lost again, and many more have all been fulfilled in our day. What a sign!
But the sign continues to speak! The Jews will be God’s chief evangelists to the Gentiles in the tribulation period. That means a pre-tribulation rapture. All from a few words in that incredible verse!
A message for the Jews: You are going to return to your Messiah. You will soon see with new eyes. It was written ages ago in Bible prophecy...it will happen. But when you return be careful not to return to the old ways. Return to your Lord who has many new things for you.
Church and Gentiles in general, know that to stand with and for Israel and the Jewish people is to be God’s own personal, close friend!
Psalm 60:11 “Give us help from trouble, for vain is the help of man. Through God we will do valiantly, for it is He who shall tread down our enemies.”
1 Samuel 2:9 “The Lord will guard the feet of His saints, but the wicked will be silent in darkness. For by strength no man shall prevail.”
Israel, Your God has been with you through the ages, even when you turned against Him, and were blinded as a result. But your eyes even now, are opening to your soon coming Jewish Messiah. Many forces, led by Satan, even some which you may think are too big for you to handle, will come against you. But fear not!
Look at that verse above again. “By (human) strength no man shall prevail against you". You have already won, so to speak! You are already the brothers and sisters of all Christian Zionists, who love you and stand with you.
My Jewish friends, you are God’s great sign in this world, of His soon return in judgement and love.
Anti-Semitism and its religious twin, replacement theology, are intensifying today. It is such a huge problem for its adherents because our Lord and Saviour is Jewish! That makes salvation a real obstacle for them. So, the anti-Semitic world is really shooting themselves in the head!
On the eve of destruction, most church ministers are playing ostrich, ostrich and wouldn’t dare pull their wolf-heads out of the sand to teach, inform and warn their blind sheep about the soon coming disasters.
The “Jerusalem” pictogram sign:
Amazingly, the pictograms of each Hebrew letter of the word “Jerusalem” paints a stunning picture. When the pictograms are put together this is what is contained in the name:
“A Prince is coming to do a mighty work, to accomplish a divine deed. It is to crush and destroy the voice of authority that is causing chaos confusion and death.”
That’s all hidden below the surface in the name alone...and people want to mess with Jerusalem!
●This is a short video clip on the meaning of Jerusalem: HERE
Signs will arise:
Be confident of this: It’s not our Lord’s character to catch us out or leave us uninformed. The signs will arise at the right time. It may be this year. If not, I doubt it would be longer than next.
The Revelation 12 sign may turn out to be right on the mark, as all the other ducks line up in a row. If not, it would not rock your boat because; you would not be putting all your trust in it. – Not so?
Please do yourself a favour and broaden your vision as far as the signs go and be honest with yourself. Look for all the signs together.
This great end-time drama is like a huge jig-saw puzzle. All the pieces must be there, and in place.
Please be discerning in these days!
Psalm 139:23 “Search me O God, and know my heart; try me and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
Jeremiah 29:13 “You will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all of your heart, I will be found by you says the Lord.”
Titus 2:13 “We look for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Saviour Yeshua the Messiah.”
We have so much, of such incredible value and importance lying just before us, don’t give up!
Our bodies will be transformed in a flash and conformed to the body of glory of our Lord. It will be incorruptible, full of power. It will be a spiritual body able to transcend the physical and spiritual dimensions at will. We will have full and complete knowledge of all things. We will “bear the image of the heavenly Man.” (1 Corinthians 15:42-49, Philippians 3:21)
Our future eternal bodies will be sickness and deformity free, ageless, never to see death.
Psalm 139:16-17 “Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they were all written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them. How precious are Your thoughts towards me, O God!
If you reject Bible prophecy and its signs, apart from rejecting one third of the Bible, you will receive the devil’s prophecy! Do you know what the devil’s prophecy is?
It’s anything you want it to be!
It’s the word of man, the word of the world and the word of the demonic. It’s all around us today!
Psalm 119:160 “The entirety of Your word is truth, and every one of your righteous judgements endures forever.”
I took this picture in the desert section of Etosha Game Reserve.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
