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 395: December 12th 2017.
Embassies of more nations are now announcing they are moving to Jerusalem, which is an act of recognition of the city as the capital of Israel. This does have huge implications prophetically. Do not neglect to read this entire edition. It is much more important than you may think!
Is this the beginning of the “shaking of all things” leading to the tribulation period, a peace covenant, the coming temple, and of course the rapture? It could be! It most certainly brings the entire end-time picture into focus, shining the spotlight on it, and thrusting it onto centre-stage.
The great awakening is gathering momentum!
What is happening now is the sceptre of wickedness, (Islam) over Jerusalem, the rod of its authority, is being broken. (Psalm 125:3) The nation born in a day – Israel, (Isaiah 66:8) and its eternal city is travailing before its spiritual birth. And before the male Child – Yeshua, arrives and begins His glorious work amongst the Jews.
Is your church enlightening you on these issues? If not, it’s high time to awaken to the Spirit of God, hear His word and do His will. Beloved brethren, these things are vitally important. Spiritual forces are at work and are intensifying even now!
You will overcome, or be overcome in these coming times! You must have a solid, strong foundation to stand in the coming storms.
End Time Jerusalem:
The recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is a landmark milestone, and watershed. It is the beginning of the end-time prophecy train. It is a great sign to be noted...a true sign of the times.
Amongst other things, it shines the spotlight on God’s truth and the veracity of His word. It identifies His enemies in the world and in the church and brings them out into the open!
The Trump decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital has “doomed the peace process,” say the Palestinians, and many of their puppets, the world’s leaders. Actually, when you think about it they are quite right, but they won’t like what I’m about to say and neither will many churches!
The world-peace process is doomed! True godly peace is now coming – on the wings of the destruction of the world’s useless efforts to create Middle Eastern peace, and world peace, which flies in the face of God’s way to peace.
The name “Jerusalem” comes from two root words: “Jeru” and “Shalom”. Jeru means “king” and Shalom means “peace”. The Hebrew name: “Yerushalayim” means: “The foundation of peace”.
Jerusalem is referred to as “The city of God” in the Bible. (Psalm 46:4, Psalm 48:1-3)
Jerusalem is also referred to as the city of David in the Bible. (2 Samuel 5:7) David is a type of our Lord and Saviour.
Jerusalem is also referred to as the city of Zion in the Bible (1 Kings 8:1) “Zion” means fortification.
Jerusalem is also referred to as “the city of the Great King”, “the city of peace”, “and the stumbling stone of the nations” in the Bible.
If we put this lot together we have:
Jerusalem is the city of the King of peace, the foundation of peace, the city of God, the city of the Great King, the city of David, the city of Zion and the city over which the nations shall stumble! What sort of incredible city is this?
It is the city of huge prophetic significance in reality and in type.
God moved His Embassy to Jerusalem long ago!
God chose Jerusalem and He inscribed His name upon the city.
Isaiah 49:16 “See, I have inscribed you (Jerusalem) on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me.”
But why did God place His “Embassy” in Jerusalem and why did He choose that old city?
Was it because the Jews are chosen and are special? Was it because that’s where so many biblical things occurred? Was it because the city itself is special?
No sir- none of the above!
Do you think the Jews are special? Here is what God thinks of His chosen people the Jews:
Jeremiah 17:1 “The sin of Judah (Jews) is written with a pen of iron, with the point of a diamond it is engraved on the tablet of their heart, and on the horns of your altar.”
The “point of a diamond” in the verse above refers to the hardness of this engraving instrument, which also speaks of the hardness of Israel’s heart. This deadly pen does not write on paper or papyrus. It engraves on Jewish stone-hearts, and you can’t erase it! Or can you?
The cross of Messiah is the great eraser! It erases sin and re-writes lives. Now sins are re-written with invisible ink!
Jews – soon your sins which were like “scarlet will be white as snow” – invisible and erased! (Isaiah 1:18)
We have been “crucified with Messiah” and as such, we have a book containing clean, holy, indelible records, written with God’s diamond-tipped, fiery pen. Yes, God has been writing our autobiography every day of our lives with purity, light and truth! What a wonderful diary that will be for many!
We are the living epistles of God, known and read of all men, now and forever. (2 Corinthians 3:2)
The world has its doom written out with God’s diamond-tipped pen of fire. It is the “writing on the wall” declaring its destruction and soon-coming end. The world has no cross to erase this writing!
So, the sins of the Jews are seen by God just as they are for all others, there is no difference. God chose the Jews simply because that was His choice and He, in His foreknowledge, knew that the Jews would finally recognise Him and fulfil His calling and plan to take salvation to the nations.
2 Corinthians 5:20 “We are ambassadors for Messiah...We implore you, “Be reconciled to Messiah” (Jew and Gentile)
Ambassadors hang out in Embassies. We are the walking Embassies of God!
For us as believers, God has placed His name in our hearts by the new-birth, and Satan always tries to rip it out and destroy us.
Isn’t that just what is happening now in Israel?
God put His name In Jerusalem:
2 Chronicles 6:6 “I (God) have chosen Jerusalem, that My name may be there, and I have chosen David to be over My people, My people – Israel.”
2 Chronicles 7:16 “Now I have chosen and sanctified this house, that My name may be there forever; and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually.”
2 Chronicles 33:4 “...The Lord said, My name shall be in Jerusalem forever.”
When you put your name to something, you are imparting to it your authority. The Bible is Israel’s mandate and authority. If you reject that, Satan becomes Israel’s mandate for you, promulgated by the world and the world church.
The word “author” in the Bible is the same as the word for “authority.” The authority of any work is that of the author. So when we come to God’s prophetic word, we must remember that we are dealing with God’s own “breathed” word by His Spirit and that is the final authority!
God put His name in Jerusalem, with His authority, word and plan – exclusively!
What, do think God put His name in Jerusalem, but not His will and word? Do you think He put His name there with Muhammad’s? To believe that, you have to be stark raving mad in the head, or a member of the Emergent Church movement!
Because God put His name there by His authority, Satan tries to do the same:
Zechariah 3:2 “The Lord said to Satan, ‘The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you..!
1 Chronicles 21:1 “Now Satan stood up against Israel...”
Do you know why Satan stands against Israel? The answer below is indeed profound!
●Exodus 4:22 “Thus says the Lord: ‘Israel is My son, My firstborn.”
●Hosea 11:1 “When Israel was a child, I loved him...”
Why did God choose Jerusalem?
God chose Jerusalem to be home for the Jews returning to the land. He chose it because He knew the Jews would awaken to, and recognise Yeshua their Messiah and that they would then, in the tribulation period, take salvation to the Gentile nations of the world.
Zechariah 12:10 “I will pour on the House of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look upon Me whom they have pierced...”
Isaiah 28:16 “Behold, I lay in Zion (Jerusalem) a stone for a foundation, a tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation...”
But there’s a much more important and deeper reason why God chose Jerusalem.
He chose to put His name in our hearts as believers, in anticipation of our coming transformation and glorification. Jerusalem, in a sense, is in the same situation. God put His name there in anticipation of its future transformation into the glorious New Jerusalem – still to come!
Israel is still blind:
Many Jews and Christians are awakening to God’s great end-time plans, which will absolutely come to pass. “The Word cannot be broken.” (John 10:35)
But today most Jews, although positive about their land and city, can’t see why and what it’s all about.
Luke 19:42 “If you had known, even you (Jerusalem), especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now your peace (Shalom) is hidden from your eyes...because you did not know the time of your visitation.”
The “peace of Jerusalem” is still hidden from their eyes. They are still blinded by their sin.
Jeremiah 4:16-17 “Make mention to the nations yes, proclaim against Jerusalem, that watchers come from a far country and raise their voice against the cities of Judah. Like keepers of a field they are against her all around, because she has been rebellious against Me, says the Lord.”
But Israel will soon open her spiritual eyes, have her sins erased and be the world’s greatest evangelists!
Isaiah 62:6-7 “Watchmen on the walls of Jerusalem: Make mention of the Lord, do not keep silent, and give Him no rest till He establishes and makes Jerusalem a praise in all the earth.”
Jeremiah 33:16 “In those days Judah will be saved, and Jerusalem will dwell safely, and this is the name by which she will be called: ‘The Lord our Righteousness’”
Today, people blindly follow the masses. They follow group speak, belief bias, crowd psychology, confirmation bias, and the collective consciousness of the doomed soon to be destroyed masses and their leaders the mass–media.
Many churches today follow the media’s advice and information and have written it into their stupid, band-wagon theology.
The whining, whimpering, wailing, snivel-drivel of the mass media is what influences the world. But God’s handwriting is on the wall! World, your gloomy - doom looms large!
Zechariah 12:3 “It shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away (move its boundaries) will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.”
Joel 3:2 “I will bring all nations down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgement with them there on account of My people Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations. They have also divided up My land.”
The world thinks dividing and sharing the land and the city will bring peace. It will bring war and judgement.
The world thinks capitulation, compromise, placating, and appeasement is how to deal with terrorists and bring peace! How can that bring peace? They will not stop the terror. Throw them out!
Is peace coming to Jerusalem?
The answer is no and yes. In the short term, war is coming in the name of peace!
God’s word declares that His will is for the salvation of the Jews, in their land and in their city, after their return, and that will ultimately bring world peace – the Millennial age.
But Satan opposes that with war and destruction first.
In the longer term, the Prince of Peace is coming with great peace. That will be at the end of the tribulation period.
Satan has his name imbedded in Islam, and like a giant Trojan horse, he forces his way into Israel and Jerusalem by occupation!
But the real occupation is by God! All other “occupations” are illegitimate. The Palestinians have created a fantasy reality, believing that Israel and Jerusalem is theirs. Because the world is of the same god, it supports that in its blindness.
Peace the world’s way brings war with God. Peace God’s way brings Satan to war with God. Ask Babylon about that!
War is coming to Jerusalem well before peace:
Jeremiah 4:7-15-16 (Amp) “Behold the enemy comes up like the clouds, his chariots like the whirlwind; his horses swifter than eagles. Woe to us, for we are ruined – destroyed! O Jerusalem, wash your heart from wickedness, that you may be saved. Warn the neighbouring nations that our adversary is coming; announce to Jerusalem that besiegers are coming from a far country, shouting against the cities of Judah.”
We are to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. It is coming – God’s way!
Isaiah 61:3 “The Lord will console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called the trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He might be glorified.”
By the way, USA, you can expect some sort of significant blessing to come your way now as a result of blessing Israel.
The claim of the enemies of God:
If you claim something that’s not yours is your own, and the rightful owner is standing right there, you can say that they are occupying your property. But you know that you are a thief and a liar. And just because the media supports the cause of the thief, that does not make them right. They are all of the same evil spirit!
Just to take this a step further: We as true cross bearing believers are born-again and occupied by our rightful owner God. Satan, his demons and puppets, hate that, and want to rip the cross out of us and occupy us with their devil instead!
Claiming that something is yours repeatedly does not make it your own. That was the strategy of Hitler (and of Satan.) He said: “Make the lie big, keep saying it and eventually the masses will believe you.”
How to pray for Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews:
In your prayer, quote the scriptures. Make them proclamations. Write them down. Pray them with like-minded believers too. Fast and pray. Pray to keep from falling into deception; pray that God keeps your spiritual eyes open. Pray often and regularly on these things. Pray in the fear of the Lord.
Here are just a few verses to pray:
Genesis 12:3 “I will bless those who bless you (Israel), and I will curse him who curses you.”
Psalm 122:6 “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; may they prosper who love you.”
Psalm 129:5 “Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.”
Psalm 68:1 “Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: Let them that hate Him flee before Him.”
Isaiah 41:11 “Behold, all those who were incensed against you (Israel) shall be ashamed and disgraced; they shall be nothing, and those who strive with you shall perish.”
Hosea 11:10 “They shall walk after the Lord. He will roar like a lion. When He roars then His sons shall come trembling from the west.”
Nehemiah 2:20 “The God of heaven Himself will prosper us; therefore we His servants will arise and build, but you (descendants of the Arabs) have no heritage or memorial in Jerusalem.”
Isaiah 14:1 “The Lord will have mercy on Jacob and still choose Israel, and settle them in their own land. Strangers (Gentiles) will be joined to them and they will cling to the house of Jacob.”
Zechariah 8:13 “It shall come to pass that just as you (Israel) were a curse among the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you and you shall be a blessing. Do not fear and let your hands be strong.”
Isaiah 43:1 “Thus says the Lord who created you, O Jacob, and He who formed you O Israel: Fear not, for I have redeemed you: I have called you by your name; you are mine.”
How to face the end-times fear-free!
A major characteristic of the great shaking soon to come is fear.
Fear is a spirit. I’m not talking about just getting a fright. I’m talking about an enduring, overhanging, tormenting fear. It actually hinders your walk with the Lord and much more.
The Bible talks of the “spirit of fear” in numerous places.
2 Timothy 1:7 “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and a sound mind.”
Hebrews 13:6 “The Lord is my helper, I will not fear.”
●Do you know how to be truly wonderfully fear-free? Then fear!
Proverbs 19:23 “The fear of the Lord leads to life. He who has it will abide in satisfaction and will not be visited with evil.”
Please understand the incredible power in that simple verse! Do you want abundant life, a life of satisfaction? In these coming days of the outpouring of evil, do you want to be free from evil? Then fear the Lord!
Isaiah 33:6 “The fear of the Lord is His treasure.”
Are you a special treasure to God? You are not if you don’t actively fear Him!
The great bottom line in all of this is: God has chosen / Satan has chosen! Pick your choice wisely beloved brethren!
There is no neutrality or middle ground!
It’s all about what God says, thinks, has done and will do, which is fully contained in His word. That’s the beginning and end of it all!
So pick your choice – but choose carefully –you will be identifying yourself as a giant fool of the world, or a wise child of God!
There is no neutrality!
The Palestinian concerto of lies, its war of words, its hatred in the name of peace, fools the blind media and the world. Their bloodshed, hostility and contention is now clashing, and crossing swords with God: Carnage is coming.
This began as an art work with leaves “stamped” onto the canvas. I superimposed the acacia-tree sunset over the art – viola!
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
