●The US election remains undecided as the legal battle gets underway. Anywhere God’s ways are revealed, it all comes under attack. The battle at the moment is for biblical principles in the land (at least some) and the ways of the wicked. The US has had the privilege of having God’s word define family. His word defines a male and female. His word defines where life begins. His word defines what sin is, righteousness and holiness is. The removal of the Bible from society opens people for the evil and wickedness to manifest and grow unhindered. (Jeremiah 17:9) Removing God removes restraint and puts the masses in terrible agreement, awaiting judgement. (Hosea 4:1-2) The US Democratic Party and all liberal left movements around the world are collectively orchestrating their own demise. There are far bigger things at work than politics!
Job 12:24-25 “He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, and makes them wander in a pathless wilderness. They grope in the dark without the light; he makes then stagger like a drunken man.” (So now you know why Joe must go!)
This election is far from over, and may spring a surprise soon!
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose of this report is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
What is the Salvation of a nation?
Isaiah 32:18 “My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places.”
1 Timothy 2:2 “Pray for kings and all who are in authority, that you may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.”
As Christians we are ambassadors for Messiah’s kingdom, sent to the darkness to shed God’s light in it. Of course, there is a limit to that, because Satan is the god of the world, but nevertheless we do need to be God’s torch-bearer.
Jeremiah 29:7 “Seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive and pray for it, for in its peace you will have peace.”
There’s a distinction between God’s requirements for personal salvation and for the salvation of a nation. The scriptures need to be applied to each. So many, including pastors go off into a ditch on one side of the road, and essentially loose the plot!
It’s not so much about Trump or Biden, but more about spirits and biblical issues.
It’s not so much about the personalities but the policies and principles they represent.
In supporting one candidate, by default you are rejecting the other. So if one candidate represents a whole lot of biblical issues and the other, the opposite, you are standing for the policies much more than the personality. You cannot support one candidate and not all of his policies.
What’s different now is that God’s judgement has entered front stage. The call for repentance on the big world-influencing issues like abortion and moral degeneration is being echoed by all men of God, in tune with God, and even most rabbis.
If the call for repentance goes unheeded, judgement is on the doorstep. The liberal left parties, worldwide are not only ignoring God’s call, but making the situation far worse, by intensifying their rebellion on the very issues that have caused God’s judgment.
Psalm 58:2 “In heart you work wickedness. You weigh out the violence of your hands in the earth.”
We as believers are to go into the world from a position of being separate from it. I heard one pastor say the other day: “O well let’s just forget about Trump and focus only on Jesus.” When you throw in the towel of your ambassadorship you are capitulating to the devil. (2 Corinthians 5:20)
I’m not by any means suggesting that Christians become politicians, or go overboard on these things.
The Bible divides us into spirit, soul and body. The Bible says we are in this world but not of it.
It is our soul and body that is in this world with the nations. It is our spirit that is born again and seated in heavenly places.
We are not to be in friendship with the world and entangled in it, but to operate as agents of the kingdom of God, bringing both light and warning to the nations.
Multitudes are in the valley of decision not just about politics but their eternal life. Many are going to come like a flood into the kingdom in coming days, and many will be swept away like a flood!
I have written much on this subject, but the Bible is full of it. Here are more appropriate verses:
Proverbs 24:21 (Amp) “My son, reverently fear the Lord and king, and do not associate with those who are given to change of allegiance, and are revolutionary.”
Proverbs 28:28 (Amp) “When the wicked arise, men hide themselves, but when they perish, the righteous increase and become many.”
Proverbs 28:2 (Amp) “When a land transgresses, it has many rulers, but when the ruler is a man of discernment, understanding and knowledge, its stability will long continue.”
Proverbs 29:16 (Amp) “When the wicked are in authority transgression increases, but the righteous shall see the fall of the wicked.”
Isaiah 60:12 “The nation and kingdom that will not serve you shall perish; those nations shall be utterly laid waste.”
Psalm 9:17 “The wicked shall be turned back into Sheol (hell), even all the nations that forget God.”
Nehemiah 4:14 (Amp) “Do not be afraid of the enemy, remember the Lord great and terrible, and imprint Him on your minds, and take from Him courage to fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives and your homes.”
1 John 4:4 “Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.”
If President Trump is returned to office, the world may get a respite and holding off of judgement for a while, but it won’t override God’s overall purpose of bringing the rebellious world to its knees! If Biden ends up on the throne, it will expedite and hasten the terror to come.
You can and must secure your salvation now. If you are not sure or not saved, now is the time – not tomorrow! As you will see in the new edition, “Contrasting new world orders,” we are on the very verge of some things that will shock, stagger, surprise and stun you!
Edition 414: April 24th 2018
What is real Messianic faith?
“Real Messianic faith” implies there is an “unreal” or “untrue” side to the story too. We will look at that as we go. I am a Messianic believer – with many qualifications of that definition.
The times are exciting, the days are evil, and the time is short. We must know where we stand. We must purify ourselves now and be ready for the incredible things that lie ahead for the world, the Jew, the Christian and our eternal state.
There is soon to be great overpowering, supernatural forces at work. Some will be captivated by the glory of the living God and some will fall apart, as they are bewitched, beguiled and controlled by the consuming forces of darkness. Anguish of soul and many sorrows will swamp many.
Many others will lament in pangs of penitence and repentance, and will find wonderful release, forgiveness and freedom in these critical days.
We need purity of faith. We need clean doctrine. We need to be right with God on all fronts. We need to be right in heart, in head and belief.
Psalm 19:9 “The fear of the Lord is clean enduring forever.”
Many people today don’t like this verse above. They love the dirt.
Job 17:9 “The righteous will hold onto his ways, and he who has clean hands will be stronger and stronger.”
Ezekiel 36:25-27 “I will sanctify My great name, which has been profaned among the nations, which you (Israel) have profaned in their midst. The nations shall know that I am the Lord, when I am hallowed in you before them. I will take you from among the nations and gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land. Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you...I will put My Spirit within you...”
Please take careful note of the extreme severity of just what it is to be wrong with God, as revealed in the rest of this edition.
The big bottom-line definition of Messianic faith:
The short and sweet, simple definition is this: The Messianic believer is one who adheres to the Abrahamic expression of faith. This is the gospel to Abraham’s children, Jacob> Israel (the Jews) > the largely Gentile church > and the Arabs who become saved.
True Abrahamic faith sees God’s work beginning with Abraham and threading through to the ancient Jews and now through to the modern Jews to the completion of the age.
Catholic Christianity, the counterfeit, and much of denominational Christianity remove and reject the modern Jews from this equation and replace them with themselves. This is the essence of replacement theology - a fully cursed practise.
The impure Christian line:
Just as there is an impure, rejected line in the diagram above, there is an impure line, a counterfeit line within the church. The divisions all began when Constantine introduced and mixed Babylonian paganism into the church in 300AD. Here it is:
The line on the right, represents the pure un-paganised truth while the messy “failure of Christianity” on the left, represent Babylon-infested Christianity.
●I must clearly state that those in both lines who are truly born-again, are saved and part of the church.
The Messianic, Abrahamic expression of faith includes all Bible prophecy rightly divided and applied to the dispensations for the Jews and the church.
What Messianic belief is not:
Legalism in any doctrinal issue makes it similar to witchcraft. You may recall that the Judaising Pharisees “sought to kill our Messiah because He worked on the Sabbath” and therefore did not keep their rules their way.
There is no difference today – the same thing applies to all legalism. Some of them today, even have the audacity to decide for God, who is saved and who is not, based on their legalist use of Hebrew names!!!
Most people under the bondage of legalism hate and resist anything that tends towards liberty. The evil spirits in them want to control you! Flee from them all!
All forms of faith that exclude God’s end-time work with and for the modern Jews is not true Messianic faith of any description.
Repentance is a wonderful, powerful thing! You can be wrong on so many things, and one simple, sincere act of repentance can fix a lifetime of wrongs, all in a flash! Likewise the failure to repent can have disastrous, eternal consequences.
Hooks, hooks and more hooks:
Do you know what a fish-hook is? I think everyone does. It is a sharp hook that acts as a lure and lodges in the jaw of the fish. The fish is then entrapped, ensnared, and caught. God has a “tackle-box” full of hooks that are eternally deadly!
If God puts a hook in your jaw – that’s it – it’s a done deal, it’s all over. And let’s remember that God is eternally just. If He puts a hook in your jaw – it was the right thing! Understand that you will not escape from God’s hook in your jaw.
God puts His hooks in the jaws of certain types of people.
Anti-Semitism in the world, and its evil twin, replacement theology in the church causes God to put His hooks in their jaws.
At some point, God inserts the hooks. I don’t know where that point is, and neither do you, but there is a point! You will then be drawn to destruction and it will be the living God doing it. That may not agree with your theology, but who cares?
Having God put hooks in your jaw is similar to the New Covenant issue with homosexuality. At some point these people are “handed over” to Satan. (Romans 1:24, 26, 28) Once you have been handed over, that’s it. It’s now too late. It’s also similar to the New Covenant situation of being “handed over to strong delusion” (2 Thessalonians 2:11) because they were sold-out on the lies of the devil.”
Hooks in the jaws of Syria and Russia:
Isaiah 30:27-28 (Judgment upon Assyria /Syria today) “The Lord comes burning with His anger and His burden is heavy; His lips are full of indignation and His tongue like a devouring fire; His breath is like an overflowing stream, which reaches up to the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of futility and there shall be a bridle (hooks) in the jaws of the people, causing them to err.”
The discourse above relates to end-time Syria, prophetically.
Note the great horror in the verse: The nations who get involved will be caused by God to err! That is the result of the immovable hooks in their jaw placed there by God. Again, that may not tally with your theology – but who cares?
We don’t know exactly what the hook-caused error of the nations will be, but according to other prophecies, it will be something that will involve mass-destruction and perhaps, together with the Ezekiel 38 / 39 WW111, Psalm 83 and others will lead into the soon coming tribulation period.
Bear in mind that in the great Ezekiel war (Ezekiel 38:4) we also see “hooks placed in the jaw” of Gog / Magog (Russia). Again, this is God who “turns them around,” drawing them into the war with hooks in the jaw.
Hooks in Egypt’s jaw – the jaws of the unsaved!
The following verses relate in type to the unsaved of the world (Egypt), but amazingly, they relate to the hopelessness and utter destruction of the world’s participants in anti-Semitism, which would also include replacement theology.
Ezekiel 29:2-12. Here are some of the salient features of this incredible discourse:
“O Pharaoh, king of Egypt and all Egypt, I (God) will put hooks in your jaws. I am against you king of Egypt, (world-system in type) O great monster who lives in the Nile River, who has said – ‘This is my river; I have made it for myself.’ But I will put hooks in your jaws and bring you up out of the rivers...and I will leave you in the wilderness; you shall fall on the open field. I have given you as food for the beasts and the birds. Then all the inhabitants of Egypt shall know that I am the Lord, because they have been a staff of reed for the house of Israel, when they took hold of you with the hand, you broke and tore their shoulders. (Anti-Semitism / replacement theology)When they (Jews) leaned on you, you broke and made all their loins shake. Therefore, I will bring the sword upon you and cut you off and the land of Egypt shall become desolate.
This speaks of demon powers arising from the waters. It speaks of demon forces of hatred for God’s ways. It speaks of the enemies of God and the Jews.
Here are some headings from the rest of this discourse: “Egypt (unsaved world in type) and her allies will fall”. “Egypt will be cut down like a great tree”. “Egypt and her friends are consigned to the pit”.
I hope you see the severity of resisting God’s end-time plans for Israel. I hope you see the doom of anti-Semitism and the destructive desolation of replacement theology!
As the world and much of the church chooses to go the way of Satan, they can’t even see invisible hooks being placed in their jaws by God.
Esau will send you to hell!
►This is all-important – it is important, important, and important again!
God has a glorious plan. If you reject His plan and choose Satan’s counterfeit plan, you are on thin ice. If you don’t get off it – your destination is hell.
The godly line is Abraham> Isaac> Jacob> Israel of old> the church> Israel now> heaven.
The counterfeit line is Abraham> Ishmael> Esau> Palestinians> Islam> hell.
Of the twin brothers, Esau and Jacob, Esau was born first, giving him the traditional birthright. This birthright included: ●The physical land of Israel. ●It even extended to lordship of other nations. ●It included direct blessing from God and ●agricultural prosperity. ●It included divine protection. ●It included the city of Jerusalem.
Once the birthright blessing had been given by the father, he could not take it back. It was legal tender – a legal covenant. (Genesis 27:28-29) Read it!
We know the story: Esau (who became the Arabs and now Palestinians by extension), sold the birthright to Jacob for a single meal. This was a legal transaction and could not be reversed.
Esau, realising his far-reaching mistake, sought to reverse the transaction. “He sought repentance, but found no place for repentance though he sought it with tears.” (Hebrews 12:17) God rejected his tearful repentance attempt!
Beloved brethren, don’t mess with God. There are some limits to repentance, as revealed here. There are seven others. There are some things that will get you hooks in your jaw!
After the sale of the birthright to Jacob, the long list of blessings now fell upon Jacob / Israel and Esau was cut off. He did receive some other blessings, but nothing that was part of the inheritance that now went to Israel – the Jews.
●What if Esau sought repentance and found it? Would that remove Jacob / Israel / Jews from the birthright covenant? No sir, it would not.
●What if Esau just ignored the sale of the birthright and claimed the entire blessing upon Jacob / Israel / Jews as his, repentance or not? Would that restore the birthright to Esau? No never!
●What if Jacob / Israel / Jews themselves gave up their legal birthright and gave it back to Esau / Arabs / Palestinians in violation of God’s covenant and will?
That would not nullify God’s covenant with Israel, from His side, but it will break it from the Jewish side. That would immediately, before the ink on the signed paper was dry, infuriate, enrage, and madden God into wild wrath in a flash – the tribulation period.
Do you see where I’m going with this? I hope you do!
Almost all the nations of the world have sided with the unjust, immoral, illegal claims of Esau, against Jacob / Israel / Jews. That’s the whole story of the Palestinians! But tragically, and very soon, Jacob / Israel / Jews will enter the fray on the side of the antichrist.
Isaiah 28:15-18 “Because you have said, ‘we (Israel) have made a covenant with death, and with Sheol (hell) we are in agreement. When the overflowing scourge (tribulation period) passes through, it will not come to us, for we have made lies our refuge and under falsehood we have hidden ourselves’... (God says :) ‘Your covenant with death shall be annulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand. When the overflowing scourge (tribulation period) passes through, then you shall be trampled down by it.’” Verse 22 “Destruction is determined, even upon the whole earth.”
This is one of the most tragic portions of scripture in the Bible (above). It brings tears to my eyes!
Here the Jews sign a covenant which they believe will bring them peace and safety. But God calls it a “covenant with death” The Jews believe that this will keep them from the tribulation. God says that He will annul and cancel this covenant with the antichrist, and the result will be them (Israel) going headlong into the tribulation, and not being spared from it!
In a sense, God will put hooks in the jaws of the Jews and draw them into the tribulation because they violated God’s covenant of life and peace with them and instead chose the covenant of death and war with the anti-Semites of the world.
This death-covenant that the Jews will sign is also revealed in Daniel 9:27. This so-called peace covenant will in fact be a satanic attempt to roll back the birthright to Esau...The Palestinians!
What incredible drama – It’s just warming up!
By the way, the Palestinians came up with the slogan: “Kill the Jews.” It is actually saying – “Kill God’s ways and let Islam live!” It is saying, “Gods promise is to Ishmael, Esau, the Palestinians, and not Isaac, Jacob, Israel, and the Jews.
Here is the shock of all shocks: God’s way will endure. In the process He will put hooks in the jaws of the anti-Semitic nations of the world. He will put hooks in the jaws of the churches of replacement theology and draw them all onto the stage of slaughter in the tribulation period.
The true church will go to eternal peace. The counterfeit church will go into the tribulation and then eternal suffering if they do not repent in the tribulation.
Do you know that there is a giant sculpture in front of the UN building of a man beating a sword into plowshares? It has this Millennium verse cast in metal, on the side:
Micah 4:3 “...They shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.”
Poor anti-Semitic UN! Poor conglomerate of fools with hooks in their jaws!
The verse that comes first is this one:
Joel 3:9-10 “Proclaim this among the nations: ‘Prepare for war! Wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near, let them come up. Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears...’”
Do you know that God will have the last laugh? But His laugh will be the echoing, reverberating, shattering shock of all shocks to the nations!
Isaiah 60:14 “Those who afflicted you (including Germany) shall come bowing to you (Israel), and those who despised you, shall fall prostrate at the soles of your feet; and they shall call you, ‘the city of the Lord, Zion the Holy One of Israel.”
Numbers 23:20 “Behold, I have received a command to bless (Israel), He has blessed and I cannot reverse it.”
►May I address the political leaders of the world? Some of you have such nice sweet, smooth cheeks. Hooks in jaws will destroy you and your looks forever – and O boy – is it coming soon?
Who will God use?
God will use big guns and big fish -hooks to get His people, the Jews back into their land – firstly in spiritual blindness, and when all are back, He will open their eyes fully.
Jeremiah 16:16 “Behold, I will send for many fishermen, says the Lord and they shall fish for them; and afterwards, I will send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them...”
The fish-hooks lure the prey, and the hunter drives the prey with guns. Both will be at work in this huge regathering of the Jews. Today there are 8.8 million Jews back in the land. There are 14 million Jews worldwide, so a lot still have to come back.
God will use Israel as His “battle-axe,” His weapon of war. He will use hooks in jaws to entrap His and Israel’s enemies.
Our Lord will use His servants who are spiritually clean for evangelism to the Jews and Gentiles. He will use Israel in the tribulation period because they will be the only nation on earth who will be spiritually clean! Isn’t that a surprise!
God will approve, commend, exalt, favour, glorify, honour and use His own.
What we see now is a great falling away of multitudes of Spirit-less, denominational-type Christians and their leaders. They do not have the power or strength to endure. Why would God use them? Quite simply – He won’t. Satan is using them.
Why would God use any church that resists His plans for Israel? He won’t. Satan is using them.
God will only use those with hooks in their jaws to draw them to destruction!
God will use His people who know, accept and proclaim Bible prophecy.
True Messianic faith is the Abrahamic expression of faith – to the Jews old and new, to the true, clean church, to the coming salvation of many Arabs, to all of Bible prophecy rightly divided and applied. True Messianic faith rejects all anti-Semitism, replacement theology and has an eye on God’s tackle-box of big hooks!
True Messianic faith is an anchor for your soul in these troubled times.
Psalm 24:3-4 “Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? It is he who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the Lord.”
Deuteronomy 23:14“The Lord your God walks in the midst of your camp, to deliver you and give your enemies over to you; therefore, your camp shall be holy, that He may see no unclean thing among you and turn away from you.”
I created this image, darkening it to give a moody, angry feel. This represents God, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, who has chosen Jerusalem.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
