- After going through the news networks, we are still in this prophetic impasse. There are of course many things happening here and there, but nothing of major prophetic immediacy.
- Turkey threatens to launch "imminent operation" in Syria provoking Russia's anger! Echoes of Eekiel 38! (19 February)
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
Psalm 78:31-34 “The wrath of God came against them...in spite of this they still sinned, and did not believe in His wondrous works, therefore their day He consumed in futility and their years in fear. When He slew them, then they sought Him; and they turned and sought diligently for God.”

Shabbat Shalom to all!
Seeing is not believing!
Message to committed Christians: Your presence in your nation is its light.
Isaiah 14:12 “How you have fallen from heaven O Lucifer, son of the morning and how you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations.”
In the verse above we see that one of the major desires of Satan is to weaken the nations. If he can do that, he has little obstruction to his big plans of disruption and control.
Satan was originally called Lucifer, which means “light bearer,” before his fall.
The same principle works in believers. We are the light of the world (nations) but be careful out there, if we fall we effectively weaken the nation because our light goes out.
Bear in mind that light always pushes darkness into retreat. Darkness can never push back the light, unless the light is not really light but darkness! (Luke 11:35)
There’s an old song that speaks of the things of the world growing strangely dim in the presence of the glory of the Lord. That is so true, but it works in reverse too. The things of the world become bright when there is no real glory of God.
There are many things that may leave you still a Christian, but will put your light out or make it dim and partially hidden. In the haziness and obscurity of dim light, devils and demons run riot.
Some factors that darken your light are: ●False or presumed doctrinal light. ●That which is of the spirit of error and pride. ●All forms of replacement theology, anti-Semitism will put your light out. ●Worldliness and imbedded sin will obscure your light. ●Ignorance of the truth is a sure way to be blinded. ●Church or even national traditions and customs can be a light killer (Not all are so.) ●The opinions of man, the world, your peers, friends and sometimes family, can be a hindrance. ●All forms of pride extinguish your light. That is pride of race, face, place, grace and more.
It is the light of God that gives sight. All other lights give sight of the material world.
Do you see the things not seen by the eye? Can you hear the things the not heard by the ear? (1 Corinthians 2:9) You see, what you see with your natural eye is temporary It will soon be gone. (2 Corinthians 4:18) What you see is therefore deceptive because it’s only partly real.
The world has eyes that cannot see and ears that cannot hear! (Jeremiah 5:21, 6:10, Psalm 135:16) Seeing is not believing! Believing is seeing!
The world is lost because it has ears that cannot hear. It needs ears of the heart! The world has eyes that cannot see. It needs eyes of the heart to see the kingdom of God and true light. They want to see and hear according to the wickedness of their fallen heart and of the world.
Sin, righteousness and judgement is what you must see and hear. (John 16:8) Your eyes and ears then become sensitive to God and His word.
The Spirit of wisdom and revelation is needed but is only known by revelation. (Ephesians 1:17)
Luke 24:45 “He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the scriptures.”
The world has made gods of what it sees and hears. That’s all from the voice of the fallen light bearer – Satan himself. This is the reason the world is against Israel. It just can’t see the truth.
Satan is increasingly producing voices of chaos, antagonisms and troubles in this world. He thrives on anarchy – that’s his best weapon for gaining control of the masses. The world thinks it can see clearly enough to fix its problems! That’s just why the world is destined for doom!
To be free from the knowledge and will of God is to be a prisoner of the knowledge of the world and the propaganda and proper evil of it. That’s the way to be a slave of sin.
There is a new heaven and earth coming where righteousness dwells. (2 Peter 3:13)
There is a new Babylonian world coming where wickedness and destruction dwells!
Being in right standing (righteousness) with God, and His way is deeply, heavenly refreshing with sensitivity to our Lord and majestic King.
Righteousness: Strong’s G1343, “Dikaiosyne”. Meanings: Acceptable to God, integrity, virtue, purity, holiness, correct thinking.
There are few people on this earth who do not take counsel from somewhere or someone.
Don’t be reasoned into being wrong because the counsel of the masses thinks they are right. They are building their own tower of Babel again.
Psalm 1:1 “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path with sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful.”
As the counsel of the ungodly comes into your life, so the counsel of God goes out.
Psalm 5:9-10 “There is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is destruction; their throat is an open tomb; they flatter with their tongue. Pronounce them guilty, O God! Let them fall by their own counsels...”
Psalm 26:5-6 “I have hated the congregation of evildoers, and will not sit with the wicked. I will wash my hands in innocence...”
Psalm 119:104 “Through the counsel of Your word I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way. Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
Jeremiah 15:16-17 “I found Your words and I ate them, and Your word was to me the rejoicing and joy of my heart; for I am called by Your name. I did not sit in the assembly of the mockers, nor did I rejoice. I sat alone because of Your hand, for you have filled me with indignation.”
How to be led astray:
- Ignore the necessity of being Spirit-filled, led and taught, with His inner witness.
- Don‘t discern between those of the Spirit of truth and those of the spirit of error.
- Give yourself to false prophets and those with a history of failed predictions.
- Just be a lazy slob and blindly follow what you’ve been taught without question.
- Exalt and elevate preachers and teachers, giving their words unchecked authority.
- Don’t check out and study the scriptures yourself; don’t pray over your study.
- Maintain an attitude of know-it-all pride. Go along the wide road with everyone else.
- Exalt church tradition and customs above God and His word and ways.
It’s time to be ready and let your light shine. Things are about to happen suddenly.
Pray for your light to shine brightly continuously. Pray for your nation to be open to light.
Edition 417: May 15th 2018
Shut your mouth:
Isaiah 52:15 “He shall startle many nations. Kings shall shut their mouths at Him. What they had not been told, they shall see and what they had not heard they shall hear.”
This edition is primarily aimed at the mass-media and your own personal responses to, and use of it all, specifically in these days relating to Israel, the Middle East right now.
I was involved in the media world as a journalist and photographer all my working life, so I know it well, although many things have changed significantly since then. The same spirits are still at work.
If the media can create thinking, opinions and hence actions of people, it is extremely powerful. Don’t believe for a moment that Satan doesn’t have power. (2 Thessalonians 2:9, Acts 26:18) His power is limited though, in scope and time. (Revelation 12:12)
We must know what is happening:
To effectively know what is happening in the Middle East now, as Israel gets drawn onto the stage, we must know many elements of history, both ancient and recent as well as the prophetic future.
We must know what is happening in the spirit realm, how it worked out then, and how it is repeating now and into the future.
Satan is going to prison shortly. He doesn’t want to! He is throwing his toys out of the cot. That’s what it’s all about. And he will create as much violence, havoc and chaos in the process, although the world and its blinded media think that all of this will bring order out of the chaos! It won’t.
Let’s dig a little and see some incredible repeating patterns from history:
Hitler then and today:
Hitler is long gone, but the spirits behind him are far from gone. They are about to make their “grand” return. The mass-media will be in its same role, but disguised as it was in WW11.
Hitler’s propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, restricted press freedom unless it supported the Nazi’s. He had nights of “Bible burning!” This included Christian and Jewish magazines and other literature. It was all to produce tight control and bring about the “final solution.”
The “final solution” was not the eradication of the Jews. It was the eradication of the Jews, to pave the way for a thousand-year Nazi rule of world peace.
Few know that the fiery deaths and tragedy of the Holocaust was supposed to be the first step towards this Jew-less millennium of Nazi-world rule. Few know that this was also to be the final solution for Christians.
Here are some Hitler and Nazi quotes:
“A real leader is one who can move the masses.”
“The victor will never be asked if he told the truth.”
“We will not capitulate. If destroyed, we will drag the world down in flames with us.”
“Make the lie big, and simple, and keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.”
Hitler’s name for his new Aryan age was “New World Order.” He first used it in 1941. He believed he could create a new world of peace, with a supreme, master-race, the Aryans. But the Jews stood in His way. He was wrong! God, with His plans for the Jews stood in his way. He went the way of Judas!
Hitler’s key strategy was to make full use of the media, military and the youth.
Hitler led the world to war, which was ended by nuclear bombs. WW111 may well be started with nuclear weapons flying around. We will soon see!
The Allies had a few round-table meetings with Hitler trying to get him to disarm. They used nice words and deals. Hitler never kept his word.
Today we have exactly the same thing on the go with Iran and the nuclear deal. Disarming Iran is like trying to disarm Satan! You are dealing with a nation speaking the words of the “father of lies.”
The world’s media says they must negotiate with Iran, as they did to set up the original nuclear deal, and as Churchill did with Hitler, trying to make peace. Hitler’s peace talk was a deception and lie.
What an insane thing! Negotiate what? How far to drive the Jews into the sea? Any meaningful negotiation by anyone with brains needs to start at the beginning with the big, important issues. These include Iran’s stated intention and desire to annihilate the Jews, which was repeated again only a few days ago!
If you can’t get past that hurdle (Iran’s stated intentions), how on earth can you negotiate anything else – unless of course you are the lap-dogs of devils and demons!
The media is being used by the terrible-user to streamline the coming wars in the name of peace! They are being used to consolidate and unify the world’s attack on God’s word and choice of Israel for His purposes.
The media is creating group-speak, blind-spot bias (see below) and support for Satan.
The mass-media is preparing the way of mass-murder on a monumental scale – WW111.
Israel’s modern wars:
God has often used the nations to punish Israel for her rebellion, but never to the point of annihilation. Many nations of the world on the other hand, led by the "god of the world", have on numerous occasions tried to destroy Israel and the Jews, to the point of annihilation.
This is always where God comes to Israel’s defence and destroys or defeats those nations.
In these six wars Israel was victorious against great odds:
1948 – War of Independence. (Lasted 10 months)
1956 – War called The Syrian Campaign. (Lasted 100 hours)
1967 – The Six Day War. (Lasted 6 days)
1970 – War of Attrition. (Lasted 18 months)
1973 – Yom Kippur War. (Lasted 21 days)
1982 – Galilee War. (Israel withdrew) (Lasted 4 months)
All previous attempts to destroy the Jews throughout ancient history, also failed.
Nations of the world, do you want to gamble against those odds? Even your devil-leader won’t be able to help you defeat God! “Why do the nations rage and take counsel together against the Lord and His anointed.” (Psalm 2:1-4) Because they are such fools, “the Lord sits and laughs at them.”
The role of the mass-media:
The mass-media tries to be a hero-maker. They unknowingly try to make Satan and his disciples the world’s hero’s. But these will be short-lived and then the masks and veils will come off!
The role of the media has become to deny God’s truth, and replace it with their own. It is in fact to deny the power of the cross and replace it with Satan’s power. It is to blind people to the truth rather than reveal it. Their role is to lead the masses to hell under the auspices of their big-boss.
The media today is much more influential than in years past. It is much larger, more centralised in policy, ownership and purpose, and more evil. The quality of its material is deteriorating fast. It is to be treated with suspicion, and should automatically be rejected as the world’s deceiver-in-chief.
As a side-note, obviously, I’m not talking about media coverage of general hard news events. It’s anything that is opinion-based which is problematic.
The media is the architect of an immoral, godless world, believing that they are the final authority of what is right and acceptable, and what is not. They are spiritually blind, deaf and dumb.
The authority of the mass-media is the powerful authority of the “father of lies.” (John 8:44) If your source is the father of lies – you are a big liar, a puppet-reporter of real fake news!
How can you trust the media, especially on important biblical issues? The only way you can do that is by calling God a liar and Satan the author of truth!
Who is the “pillar and foundation of truth?” God and His church or Satan and his church the mass-media? (1 Timothy 3:15)
The world’s mass-media, unwittingly (or maybe not) is guilty of the attempted great heist of truth. But try as they may, they simply can’t turn the pillar of truth into a lie! They can do so for themselves and blindly believe that their “truth” is a huge towering pillar, when in fact it is a temporary little insignificant molehill, here today, gone soon forever!
It is the mass media – Satan’s voice of the world, that first blinds people, then binds them, and makes them stupid – then subservient to the spirit of error!
The media, think they are gods. They are “gods of the world”! (2 Corinthians 4:4)
Dancing deceived puppets:
A puppet has no mind of its own; it is enslaved to its master. Some can even speak. They are called ventriloquists, but the stupid, puppets still have to spend most of their days in a dark box.
If the world’s media is your feeder and leader, you soon become a monster-puppet under the swing of the strings of Satan.
As living, mindless marionettes, and zombie-puppets, you follow your feeder-leader. He praises the wicked and so do you! (Proverbs 28:4) Without the mass-media there would not be such a worldwide, universal acceptance and praise of evil and wickedness.
●Jeremiah 7:28 “This is the nation (the media) that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God, nor receive correction. Truth has perished and has been cut off from their mouth.”
Now, may I invite you to the real-deal puppet show?
Isaiah 18:3 “All inhabitants of the world and dwellers on the earth; when He lifts up a banner on the mountains, you see it; and when He blows a trumpet you hear it.”
The verse above can relate to the media that does speaks the truth in these last days.
Ask yourself this: Do you see the Lord’s banner relating to Israel? Do you hear His voice and trumpet-warning? If not, you need to kill your puppets. (Demons)
The macabre dance of the half-baked:
Too many Christians today are ill-prepared and incomplete, because too many pastors, teachers and leaders have made them so. The teachers themselves are half-baked and they present a half-baked, incomplete gospel with all the “hard sayings”, and “severity” removed. (Hosea 7:8, Romans 11:22)
In Hosea (above), “half-baked” or “unturned” means cooked on one side only. In other words, they have removed from their gospel what they don’t like!
►The half-baked are always half-blind! The half-baked and half-blind are always half-hearted!
Tragically, the half-baked believer will get completely fried in the fires of wrath to come.
The ghastly, grim dance of the half-baked is in fact the same, terrible dance of the lukewarm, spewed out, slipping and sliding to hell! (Revelation 3:16)
Some helpful, insightful, important terms:
Naive realism: This is the psychological term for the human tendency to believe that what they see and hear is real and true. Those who disagree with them are branded irrational, biased or heretics. Naive realism entrenches systematic error based on false majority consensus. They believe that they are the only really objective ones. (I could give you a million examples!)
Belief bias or Blind spot bias: Simply, this is failure to see the impact of their own error and judgment. They see only their own view through tunnel vision. It often leads to other biases.
Group speak: Crowd psychology or confirmation bias, are terms for the collective thought and action of a crowd. Collective consciousness sees a crowd often take on a life-force of its own, which is very seldom of God.
Constancy bias or perpetual bias: All things will continue as before. There is no dramatic change coming to the world or people. There is no judgement coming.
Many people get a false comfort by these psychological conditions. They think that everyone is like this! But when it comes to eternal judgement, there will be no such thing as collective anything! All coming judgement will be upon you alone and your own individual choices, words and actions.
If collective thinking and action was valid there would be no liability or accountability and therefore no judgement – exactly what Satan wants you to believe!
Mixing truth and error results in watered down, lukewarm, spineless people of no consequence! Mixing truth and error results in an impossible marriage between Satan and God. That’s just why so many Christians are just as unstable and stressed out as the world!
Jeremiah 8:8-9 “How can you say, ‘we are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us’? ‘Look the false pen of the scribe certainly works falsehood (and fake-news). The wise are ashamed, dismayed and taken. Behold, they have rejected the word of the Lord; so what wisdom do they have?’”
Proverbs 21:2 “Every way of man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the hearts.”
The great curses of today and tomorrow:
So you want to be a media man / woman? You might like to read the verse below from the Bible, I’ve selected, jut for you:
Deuteronomy 27:18 “Cursed is the one who makes the blind to wander off the road.”
Coming against God’s plans for Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews always invokes a curse. Bear in mind that a curse is not just some little erroneous belief. It carries enormous, long-lasting, heavy consequences. (Numbers 24:9, Genesis 12:3)
Many times curses filter through even to innocent generations beyond.
God’s enemies, which include the enemies of Israel, have tried to eliminate God’s plans since the days of Abraham. They have always got themselves a bit more them clobbered in the process.
Listen to the voices of God’s enemies – the mass media. They are still striving to destroy the Jews, while the Jews are thriving. They are still striving to hand the land to Islam!
Little do they know that Islam will be defeated, the Jews will thrive and soon see their Messiah – our Messiah – Yeshua and work with Him to bring salvation to the world in great tribulation!
Yes the Jews are still to come under great persecution from Islam, the world-system and the churches of replacement theology. But the coming troubles are temporary and part of their rocky road to righteousness.
►I warn you now: Many Christians will celebrate when Israel comes under God’s disciplinary judgement. Do not be one of the devil’s disciples in so doing.
Micah 7:8-10 “Do not rejoice over me, my enemy. When I fall, I will arise. When I sit in darkness, the Lord will be a light to me. I will bear the indignation of the Lord, because I have sinned against Him, until He pleads my case and executes justice for me. He will bring me forth to the light and I will see His righteousness. Then, she who is my enemy will see, and shame will cover her...Now she will be trampled down like mire in the streets.
“Mire” is swampy, bog which gets you struck, sinking and trapped in the mud and stench. This is the future of the Christians of replacement theology and all enemies of God’s way and choice.
Note in the verse above that God calls these people “enemies!”
There are so many other verses condemning Israel’s enemies in the strongest terms, in the Bible.
How to get and be ready:
Be discerning and selective in your study and source material. Do not receive from the great, growing wolf-pack out there.
Discern between the wolf-criers and those who are very careful how they speak. I’m not talking about a teacher never making a mistake, but those who repeatedly jump on the wrong band-wagon!
The command of God is to “fully preach the gospel.” That includes the 30% or so, of the Bible that makes up eschatology. (Acts 20:27)
Too many preach nice happy, smiley sermons in the face of Satan’s growing wrath. There is of course, nothing wrong with nice happy, smiley sermons, plus eschatology – all of it!
Today there are many preaching great, wonderful stuff, getting many saved and delivered, but there is something missing – eschatology!
Check yourself. Examine your faith, repent, walk humbly and study until you are blue in the face.
What is your life? For many, it is what the world’s media says it is, or what their customs and traditions dictate. If your life is what the world says it is, because that’s what you see, hear and follow, then it is your authority. Your life’s authority is Satan’s by default.
Set your heart to deeply love our Lord and pay the price.
Love is always a choice. In divorce or separation, people always say: “I don’t love him / her anymore.” Of course there are extreme exceptions, but generally, they are saying: “I’ve decided by choice, not to express love anymore. Their choice is based on their feelings.
Loving God is just the same! You need to know as much as you can about Him, and then as an act of wilful, deliberate choice, in faith, say: “I’m going to love Him, and increase and improve that love as long as I live”! Feelings, beloved brethren, don’t come into the picture much at all.
Every media man / woman and all the people of the nations from VIP’s to paupers will soon suddenly see the truth. It will be too late for them.
►Isaiah 52:15 “He shall startle many nations. Kings shall shut their mouths at Him. What they had not been told, they shall see and what they had not heard they shall hear.”
The winds of WW111 are blowing hard. Sticks, stones, slings, arrows, axes and F35s and flying Megillah’s are all getting ready. The stage is set. (More about flying Megillah’s another time!)
The world and some of the church are already having a new veil of blindness cast over them, while the veil of blindness on the Jews is lifting.
In all of this, the Spirit of God is working in the hearts and minds of His saints to bring them to great, glorious victory. Will you be one of them? I hope so!
I’ve “booked” a table in heaven for us to sit down and have a great talk. Angels will be all around. It won’t be long now!
I took this picture in a forest of giant sycamore trees while walking along a river-bed in the Ndumu Game Reserve, one misty morning. Ndumu has the highest bird species count in South Africa. It is once again home to the big five – elephant, lion, buffalo, leopard and rhino.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
