|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.|

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 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!
