|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!
“Expectation”: One simple little word with so much meaning!
Bible prophecy creates in us great expectation and excitement and hope. It brings things from the spiritual dimension into reality.
But as you can imagine, it does the opposite when the expectation is built on false prophecy, error and pure lies. It then all works in reverse. The failure kills the expectation, the excitement and hope. It actually goes much further in wrecking evangelism and other related Christian issues.
So when these Christian counterfeits come up with all these new dates for the rapture and others things found in prophecy, do they think of the damage they are causing to others? Of course not! – All they think of is themselves on a pedestal.
Rather than enhancing the gospel, they are attacking it!
Well, we have just had the giant failure of the July 17th 2019 rapture predictions made by many of those who published You Tube videos and teachings on how “for certain” this was! “It’s 100% for sure,” they said. “The Lord told me” they said. “I had a dream about it” they said. The rapture is July 17th2019 they assured all their gullible fans.
Their evidence was of course totally shockingly inadequate, superficial and absurd, to say the least!
The problem is their influence on the weak and gullible.
Let me clarify my position on the rapture again. Firstly I which it was yesterday!
►I believe that the most possible scenario is on the Feast of Trumpets. This would be one in which the other prophecies on the ground all dovetail. The Feast of Trumpets qualifies because it is the only one of the seven that could start over one of two days. Remember the Hebrew idiom and name for the Feast of Trumpets: “The Feast of which no one knows the day or hour!” This is because “No one knows the day or hour of the New Moon’s sighting. It does not mean: “No one knows the time!”
There are many other amazing aspects to The Feast of Trumpets and its associated meanings and applications, which I deal with as we get closer. But again, I say, there are many things that must be dovetailing together, otherwise – back to the drawing board!
With all of these date-setting failures in mind and the multitude of other attacks on Christians and the word of God, it has and will thrive until its grand conclusion!
Just think of it: Christianity began with 12 ordinary people, they were all martyred for their faith. The gospel spread around the world at lightning speed, and is still doing so today. And yes you are one of the participants of it all.
- Heaven is already rejoicing at your coming! (Luke 15:7)
- Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming...” Isaiah 14:9
You will receive a welcome into eternity! Which of the two verses above will be your welcome?
When the good news of the Kingdom arrives it marches in and kills the evil spirits of witchcraft and creates and makes new communities of glory growing forever outwards.
Do not grow discouraged by failed date-setters. Protect your faith and strengthen it. Keep your expectations and hope high. Be very discerning. Be holy now.
Revelation 22:11 “He who is unjust, let him be unjust still: He who is filthy, let him be filthy still. He who is righteous, let him be righteous still. He who is holy, let him be holy still.”
Edition 407: March 6th 2018
God’s truth / Satan’s truth:
This edition may be shocking to some.
I will deal with some of the big underlying spiritual moves and forces at work in the world today. Some of these include: Globalism, Universalism, Post-truth and Interfaith. These things are flooding the world now at great speed, together with many other dangerous false doctrines. Be aware of what is going on, so that you can be pro-active.
Defining the term:
God’s truth is unchanged and has always been revealed in His word by His Spirit. It has the goal of leading us to the cross and beyond, defining our walk, and much more. It comes with defined fruits of the Spirit.
Satan’s truth is just the same! Satan uses pure error, but his big deception lies in his use of biblical truth, but always with the cross missing. It comes with fruits of his spirit – poison.
The cross is the holiness-creator for us. The word “holiness” is rich in meaning:
Holiness: Strong’s H6944 “Qudesh”. Meanings: Apartness, separation, sanctification, pure.
Satan’s truth can include many biblical concepts like love, peace and unity, but all without the cross and the holiness it creates.
Cross-less, unholy Christianity is Satan’s counterfeit.
●The cross is the greatest obstacle to globalism, a new world order, and world peace simply because the cross is the great separator. It only unifies those who have received it and now embrace it.
●The second greatest obstacle to globalism is Israel. Like the cross of God, the call of God to the Jews, indentifies and separates them from the nations of the world, for God’s exclusive plan. The Bible forbids the Jews from assimilating into the nations, even in their dispersion.
Globalism must get rid of the cross and God’s call for Israel.
We, as true believers, must be led by the Spirit, but in this day that must include the Sword too! The Sword of the Spirit is severe. It is two edged, separating and dividing.
Today, too many are led by the Sprit of truth mixed with Satan’s truth and purposes, too many are misrepresenting pure biblical truth, and bringing it into disrepute. (2 Peter 2:1-3) A mixture of God and the devil will never ever work or produce godly results.
●The end goal of God’s truth is the coming of Messiah and a new world, pure and holy.
●The end goal of Satan’s truth is the coming of his messiah and a new world full of sin.
Satan’s authority to create his world is a well camouflaged lie and a deception. His selective use of scripture is in fact the essence of heresy. He uses many minsters and platforms like YouTube.
Satan’s use of teachers:
Some teachers of the gospel may have started well, but somewhere down the line, pride came in and the deception-door was opened! In these last days there will be thousands of them!
The nature of the false teacher is to draw away disciples after themselves. (Acts 20:30) But what they are doing is drawing people into the clutches of Satan.
The false teacher will try to get you to be led by him.
There are only two sources of revelation. One is the Holy Spirit and the other is Satan. Revelation correctly used, produces knowledge, understanding and wisdom by grace, with accompanying biblical fruits.
Revelation used by someone backed by Satan produces legalistic, judgemental control. It is actually the power of witchcraft at work.
“Witchcraft is the control of people by a spirit, which is not the Spirit of God”. – (Derek Prince)
Satan’s teachers are inside and outside of the church.
The mass media like CNN, Sky and all the others, are no longer news channels. Now, they shape the news, so that they can shape you. But it’s their big boss, Satan doing the shaping! Satan is shaping you to fit in with his globalist, evil agenda.
Part of the globalist world-agenda is to de-moralise society. They do this by constantly moving the acceptable limits of morality a bit further down, then a bit more. The world, in its ignorance, buys it all. Then they say it’s all acceptable, because the world thinks so.
Before Satan can change your morality, he must alienate your affections for God, His word and His holiness, which are all inextricably linked. He does this gradually, although now it’s all speeding up. You must know God’s word extremely well in these days, and apply it.
The word of the media and all the institutions of the world, traditions, and cultures, take pre-eminence when God is removed from society.
Politics, property, money, materialism, entertainment and all the ways of the world, become a god when God is gone. Culture and tradition takes the place of faith. They require no moral repentance and are therefore unholy in nature. People these days don’t like anything that requires deep repentance!
Ignorance of the word of God, led by the Spirit of God, is a most dangerous thing, today.
Biblical truth comes with a package which including morality. People don’t like that. They want the truth, but the not the lifestyle of the truth.
The true teacher will not yield to that. He will teach the truth with its morality and the severe consequences of avoiding it.
God’s true teachers will be led by the Spirit and therefore will be led into all truth. They will be expositors of real, complete truth. (Acts 20:27) They will preach and teach all of the truth and not selected items.
The true teacher will show you the right way, which is through repentance, to the cross, and on to glory! He will present to you the goodness and severity of God. (Romans 11:22)
A true, Spirit-led teacher will always leave you changed. You will feel clean and right.
The principle of cross-created and inspired repentance is that it creates holiness inside, and is a border and barrier keeping evil out. Repentance is a daily walk.
Globalism, war and sin:
A satanically created globalist world must be amoral. It must cast down the values, virtues and holiness of the word of God. Holiness comes exclusively from God. It has no place in Satan’s world.
Remember the great prophecy of Isaiah 59:14 “I looked and saw the word (law) cast down in the street.”
You do not cast the word down without consequences! The tragic result is that the word of the world and its god, Satan, is then exalted in the streets of the world!
Not too long ago we had many nations “under God.” Today many of those nations are under Satan. You can see it in the fruit.
Hitler had a globalist agenda. He wanted to create a thousand-year Nazi-ruled world in which they would dominate. The Jews stood in his way, because they are biblically and prophetically destined never to assimilate into the world.
The purpose today of all churches of replacement theology and various forms of anti-Semitism is no different than that of Hitler!
When you go into a church of replacement theology, do you see the swastika on the pulpit? If you don’t, you need to open your spiritual eyes! It’s right there.
Globalism involves a great change from nations under God, to nations under Satan and a hot church to a lukewarm institution of devils and demons.
Please bear in mind that globalists don’t just want you on board with them. They want to change and shape you into a piddly little creature that fits nicely into a slot in hell.
●War is a tool of globalism.
Wars are essentially fought over territory or religion. War creates chaos, fear and anarchy. The answer is a one-world system and a one-world religion. That then, gets rid of independent territories and religions. That should open the door for peace, they think!
War creates fear which creates the desire for peace. When the war is severe enough, it will be peace at any cost that will be accepted. That will include surrender to Satan’s antichrist.
Satan’s global, new world order will never be able to get rid of sin, so it is simply renamed and removed as an issue. Sin is gradually accepted and enshrined and becomes a basic human right.
The final end result of Satan’s new one world order is the enthronement of sin. No wonder the Bible calls the antichrist, “the man of sin.”
Guard your life:
Guard your hearts. What is in your heart sets and determines the course of your life!
Like never before, we need to be vigilant. We need to be discerning in identifying all the attacks upon us, and we need to be personally thorough and severe in removing the dangers.
Proverbs 4:20-23●“Give attention to My words. ● Incline your ear to My sayings. ●Do not let them depart from your eyes and ●keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all your flesh. ●Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it springs the issues of life.”
The two verses below are so profound and far reaching. They should be on top of your “Daily Bread” promise-box!
Job 20:5-6 “The triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite (Lit=godless) is but for a moment. Though his haughtiness mounts up to the heavens, and his head to the clouds, yet he will perish forever like his own refuse.”
Job 17:9 “The righteous will hold to his way, and he who has clean hands will be stronger and stronger.”
A Post-Truth World!
►The “Word of the Year” for 2016, according to the Oxford Dictionary was “Post Truth.” Their definition is: “Circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.”
The graph below shows the increasing frequency of the term “post truth” in recent years:
“Post truth!” You have to be totally stark-raving mad, and insane to believe that! Yet this is the way of the world’s deluded intellectuals, crackpot clever people, mass-media mugs, lamebrain liberal politicians, and other blinded, devil-deceived and empowered fruitcakes.
The true, repentant, faith-filled believer, on the other hand, stands securely in the temple of glorious, unchangeable, eternal truth, celebrating its awesome wonder, splendour, majesty and miraculous magnificence, transforming us from glory to glory!
Psalm 60:4 “You have given a banner to those who fear You, that it may be displayed because of the truth.”
You can’t redefine truth because it’s absolute and of God. You can only redefine yourself. It is modern humanity that is the fast-deteriorating problem.
Truth is not words and concepts although they are involved. Truth is a living Spirit – the Spirit of God. Truth is alive and well and will endure forever!
A “post truth” world of necessity means a sin-filled world of variables where anything goes. It is only God’s truth that identifies sin and deals with it through the cross. A post-truth world implies that truth is obsolete and something else has replaced it.
What has replaced it? No-truth, no absolutes, no authority structures based on God’s word. No family values, no virtues, no manners, no restraint from evil, and no Jewish Israel!
The Ten Commandments are of God. They define sin and point the way to the answer – the cross. A post-truth world rejects them and contains the commandments of Satan and points the way to hell.
Here are just a few of Satan’s commandments:
Do what you will.
Isaiah 14:13-15 “I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will sit on the mount of the congregation. I will ascend above the clouds. I will be like the Most High.’ Yet you shall be brought down to hell.’”
Today, many people would take God to court for violating their rights in this new post-truth world.
Post-truth is for brainless, hell-bound fools and politicians. Tragically many churches and their wolf-leaders are wallowing in the post-truth cow dung too.
The damage done:
A move away from God and His word kills your conscience. A damaged conscience is dangerous and makes you a moral psychopath. Actually, it’s like leprosy killing your feelings and emotions – preparing you for your ride to hell. (That’s just why leprosy is a type of sin in the Bible.)
●God’s new world order is full of holiness. ●Satan’s new world order is full of sin. Satan’s work is to make his new world order acceptable to all. The problem though is that sin almost always comes with many other satanic commodities like sickness, depression, stress, poverty and more.
Pride causes rebellion to God and refusal to repent. Humility causes submission to God and repentance. Have you ever noticed that proud and arrogant people are so blind to truth and often filled with many hang-ups, and obsessions?
Many people want to be saved, but they don’t want holiness. They are so deeply entrenched in sin that it’s normal to them. In fact it draws them forever downward. The funny thing is that holiness is powerful in its attraction. It draws you higher and fills you with all things good.
Matthew 23:12 “Whoever exalts himself will be abased, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
Obadiah 1:3 “The pride of your heart has deceived you...”
Psalm 10:4 “The wicked in his proud countenance does not seek God; God is in none of His thoughts.”
Be careful what you let into your heart, because it will grow and expand. Error grows. The Bible says “tend your heart.” That is an agricultural term meaning that we are to tend our hearts as a gardener. Rip out the weeds and nurture the good.
Most Christians are more concerned about the approval of their peers, finding favour with the world, measuring themselves amongst themselves, with the media as their standard, rather than the requirements of God.
God’s requirements have not changed one bit. They are the cross applied to the flesh, the world and the demonic! They are humility before our Lord, brokenness, surrender and an ongoing walk of repentance.
●The world’s no-cross is the great evil-maker. No-cross leaves you full of sin. Even your good is sin. ●The cross is the self - killer and holy - maker.
There is a unique power available exclusively to Christians walking in fellowship with our Lord. It’s a secret, hidden, but glorious power. It is called the power of the cross. (Philippians 3:10) This power gives us the strength die self and to walk free from sin.
Dead, hell-bound digital truth:
Today we are in a world of digital data and artificial intelligent design. Algorithms and centralised processing is being set up to produce digital dictatorships! Who controls data controls humanity!
The digital world is amoral they say. No it is not!
Satan has access to wherever God has been removed.
The digital world does what its creators make it do. It therefore takes on the morality of its creator. It is engineered to suit the globalist agenda. The control of data is a powerful means of controlling the future of humanity and the masses. Data is a control mechanism in the wrong hands!
The digital data world is and will become the power of the 666 system.
Hacking human brains is the next big thing.
For you, dear believer, the globalist agenda will not get’s its hands on you. For you it will fail miserably. The rapture will take care of that. For the unsaved it will be a huge success, only for a short time!
God’s response to Satan’s “truth”
Satan’s use of God’s truth to deceive the masses will not last. But being aware of the problem and how it works, gives you a huge advantage. God’s age old word is more than enough to defeat the devil on every front.
Proverbs 1:25-27 “If you disdain My counsel, I will laugh and mock when your terror comes. When you call on Me, I won’t answer because you did not choose the fear of the Lord. Whoever listens to Me will dwell safely and securely.”
Isaiah 5:20-24 “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness...Woe to those that are wise in their own eyes...Therefore as fire devours stubble, and flames consume the chaff, so their root will be a rottenness, and their blossom will ascend as dust; because they have rejected the law (word) of the Lord.”
Psalm 139:21-24 Do I not hate your enemies...I hate them with perfect hatred, I count them my enemies...Search me, O God and know my heart; try me and know my anxieties; see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
Satan once before got the masses to accept the way of peace without the sin-removing cross. The world will again receive Barabbas, but they won’t see that he is the antichrist!
The opposite of the cross of Calvary is worldly humanism. The cross slays self-effort, humanism glorifies it.
As we go forward nearer and nearer to our glorious eternity, we must remain vigilant, holy, pure and wise to the devil’s devices. Stay clear of globalism in all its forms including liberal politics. Let you life be an impenetrable barrier and border to all of these globalist endeavours.
Thankfully a number of churches and ministries are teaching and preaching some excellent material on these things. Others continue like stupid ostriches with their heads in the sand.
I took the background picture of a giant baobab tree in the Limpopo Province and combined it with one of my own art works also of a baobab. (I guess you’ve figured out that I love these trees!)
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
