- Iran, Germany, France and UK set up trading and payment channel to circumvent US sanctions.
The new agenda for the “good" of all is a globalist, socialist, one world order, with an inter-faith religion, and the mass-media as its voice. All these have a powerful unifying spirit at work in them – the spirit of antichrist. Socialism, like the Stalinist is of Satanism. You can never get rid of poverty by giving someone money. Poverty is a spiritual force essentially rooted in a curse from which deliverance is needed.
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 walls of Jerusalem:
Poetry is not really my thing. But I do recall lots of poetic thoughts as I walked around the streets of Jerusalem some time ago. I was awe struck not by where our Messiah walked, but the thrilling thought of where He will walk. The dusty streets, stones and walls became the subject of some paintings I did later. But I’m now going to wax lyrical. I’ve put together a painting of words – for your benefit.
Ancient stones are whispering silent soliloquies, among the sun-burnt walls. Corner-stones of spiritual stability and strength, still stand secure, riddled with holes of the ancient hatred’s bullets, and stained with dried blood of ages past, and present times too.
These stones of Jerusalem’s protection are stones of separation – holy, immovable stones, seemingly dead, but breathing life of living history. The moss-dripping masonry are milestones, with living, green twigs in crags - walls of ruined relics, written into eternity’s word.
Listen to the stones; put your ear to the walls of wisdom. Do you hear the cries of the dead? Do you hear the shrieks of celebration? Do you hear the rocks, the great carved boulders, and the pebbles, anointed with glorious and fearful prophecy?
The scarred stones of poetic justice are again announcing judgement soon to fall. The ancient stones are echoing the warnings of God. No other city-stones speak thus.
Sin's offering, the offspring of evil, will soon yield frightful fruit: Fear, horror, terror and panic. Even the beautiful aged stones of Jerusalem will shiver and shake under earth’s soon quaking!
Yet the calm, confident, contentment of fearless holiness, and eternal beauty will stand secure amongst the strain and stress of destruction's dread.
Sin’s eternal separation from the victory and glory-producing suffering of Calvary will soon be the shock of all shocks to the sin-filled world of self-worship.
Do you see the lion on the wall? Do you hear the eternal Lion, and His severe message? Do you hear God’s trumpets under His Lion’s feet and in His roar?
Can you distinguish between the Lion of God and the roaring counterfeit lion frightening only the spiritually frightened and fragile?
Sound the trumpet! Sound the glistening terrible trumpet. Sound the trumpet of ingathering. Sound the trumpet of great victory! The world’s blinded ears see nothing – fools of tragic fools - deceived in the midst of God’s shining love – rejected!
Sound the trumpet! Sound David’s harp, and raise the golden sword of glorious victory!
The sword of Satan has pierced the Shepherd, but soon the Shepherd’s sword shall strike the roaring serpent and the people will scatter to a certain hell, with all the sin-filled nations drowning in their doomed sin. Babylon’s man-made, imposter-made,confused bricks of mortar will be no more.
Sound the trumpet. Raise the alarm, raise the sword of glory, and roar, Lion of Judah - roar! Awaken your people from fateful slumber, to their coming Lamb.
The stonework of the stonemasons of Jerusalem speaks of salvation past, present, and soon to come. The stones of Jerusalem contain a living message, a message of life, eternal life, freely given but of utmost cost and glorious value.
But you must bow your speak to the speak of these sculptured, weathered virtues. You must fall on your face in the dust before the message of these rocks of ages. As you do, salvation speaks, and soon shouts, lighting the core of your life with unquenchable, immortal fire – the fire of God!
These old speaking stones sing a new song of stern severity, of great gravity. They are sharp, hard stones, but soft and gentle to His own. They are stones of solid prophecy. They will fall on and crush the nations. They speak of things to come, and very soon too.
As we see the spectacular, dramatic, majestic message of the walls of Jerusalem, Let’s take a glimpse into the exclusive, holy, eternity of eternities:
There will be stones of pure silver, streets of glorious gold. All around, imbedded in gates and walls, always open, will be unimaginable jewels. They will be jasper, sapphire, emerald, pearls, topaz, beryl, amethyst, rubies diamonds, and more.
There will be no sun or moon - the light of God’s glory will be everywhere, forever – always.
There will be the tree of life, next to crystal rivers, each tree yielding fruit once a month and there shall be no more curse! Lions shall be your friends.
The army of the Lord will now be the bride of Messiah, bedecked in righteousness, with incorruptible crowns of untarnished magnificence, ready - forever and ever.
Isaiah 9:7 “Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end...”
The Lion of lions, the Lamb of God, the sword of pure peace, will be our very comfort and eternal grace. Stones once silent, will serenade and sing with a song of songs and a descant that will reverberate through the universe.
Are you ready for the great grandeur - the glory to come?
Edition 429: August 7th 2018
E=MC² and more.
This edition is about the great breaking. It’s about the great atomic explosion and its meanings. It relates to the smallest atom, to the human being, to the rapture, to the destruction of the world and of the heavens and everything in between. It’s about what’s coming soon.
Humans are made out of atoms. - WRONG!
Humans are made partially out of atoms. But we are made primarily out of eternally existing, invisible spirit! You are wall to wall spirit with a few atoms and goodies thrown in. Don’t believe the lying media when they say that all you are is a piece of meat on some bones!
Very soon, God, the great atom smasher, will destroy our atoms with an atomic explosion releasing great power that will transform our bodies instantly into a very odd, strange mix of new, incorruptible physical form, which will have supernatural, spiritual qualities and dimensions that will put all science fiction to shame!
If anyone wants to award me a new “You’re mad” badge, thanks, I have many!
Modern man has discovered the great power residing in the tiny atom. But, true to form, his best is Hiroshima, deadly ICBM’s and nuclear submarines!
The power of E=MC²:
Within the heart of an atom (matter) is great energy. This energy is released when the atom is smashed at the speed of light, under certain conditions.
We see this in Einstein’s famous formula: E=MC² In which “E”= energy, “M”= matter and “C²= light squared (or the speed of.) Contained within every atom is a nucleus a proton and an electron. All held together by a powerful, invisible, electrical force.
But to get that power out of an atom it must be smashed and broken. Then the immense power is released and is available to be tapped.
If physical E=MC² is the release of energy contained in an atom by smashing it, then spiritual E=MC² must be the release of tremendous spiritual power in the believer’s life through the brokenness of the cross of Calvary, which produces resurrection power.
Now let’s look at some world meanings:
●Death: Strong’s G2288, “Thanetos”. Meaning: The separation of soul from body, through a force of power.
●Power: Strong’s G1411, “Dynamis.” Meanings: Miracle power, explosive power like dynamite.
Do you see it? In these two word meanings, above, we see the great breaking and the release of spiritual power.
If we could compare the entire universe to an atom, we see the same thing again: At the great eternal judgement, as our Lord re-creates the universe, when we go into the eternity of eternities, the entire universe will be broken, and a new universe with new worlds comes about.
Every trace of every spot where Satan had once been will be renovated and made new.
The grand purpose of E=MC² is the destruction of matter, producing energy.
The grand purpose of spiritual E=MC² is the destruction of sin, Satan and creation of newness of life.
Life is in the blood (and power!)
Now, let’s look into the heart of blood itself in the Bible. We will see an incredible message:
●Blood: Strong’s H1818, “Dam,” Meaning: “Essence of life.” It is made up of two root words:
1) Root word H119, “Adam,” Meaning: “Red, blood.”
2) Root word H1826 “Damam,” Meanings: “Cut-off, silent, cease, quieted.”
Here is something incredible indeed:
●“Dam-ah” (Strong’s H1819) Meanings: To be like, to be equal, or to resemble.
We can then presume from these word meanings that the blood of fallen, unredeemed Adam creates his “cut-off” status, while “Dam-ah” relates to saved man, being like God.
So, it is Adam or Dam-ah – Unsaved and saved!
When the Hebrew letter “Heh” is added to a name it means that God-breathed life is now in it. For example: Abram's name changed to Abraham after God’s covenant promises to him.
Adam was a different sort of being before he sinned. It was sin that cut him off and got him cursed. We see this, incredibly, in the meanings of the word “blood”, above.
Blood carries oxygen in it to every cell, but born-again blood carries oxygen, recreated spirit, and incorruptible, eternal life in it.
Leviticus 17:11 “The life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls, for it is the blood that makes atonement for your soul.”
The miraculous blood of our Lord is seen in a wonderful and humbling verse. We are told that the blood of the Lamb washes our robes (lives) white. (Revelation 7:14)
It is the unredeemed blood of Adam that “washes” us red with sin! It is the redeemed blood of Adam (Dam-ah) that gives us salvation, through our Lord.
Here is the sad state of those born of the unredeemed blood of Adam, and remain unsaved. They are the living dead:
James 2:26 “As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead.”
And again, the glorious contrast in the verse below:
1 Corinthians 15:22 “As in Adam all die, even so, in Messiah all shall be made alive.”
Adam’s blood can’t forgive sin. Our Lord’s blood was free from sin. It was like Adam’s blood before he fell. Like our Lord, Adam was not born of a woman, but of supernatural creation by God. This is why his blood was different before he fell.
In the new Garden of Eden there will be no fallen Adam, and no Satan and no curse.
In communion we drink the Lord’s "blood", - symbolic of its pure miraculous, saving, eternal life giving ability, unlike the blood of bulls and goats which is drank at ceremonies of pagans.
The most contagious disease ever known in the universe is sin. Only our Lord never caught the disease! Only He can cure it safely. He does it in a remarkable way: He kills you dead on His cross and then gives you new life.
You can do well as a child of Adam with his unredeemed blood in you, many do. But it will all be blown up by God one of these fine days!
Spiritual E=MC² releases the Spirit of God and gives us new, clean, pure, sin-free blood, if only by our position in Messiah now, ahead of the rapture, when it all becomes a glorious reality in every way.
Living with the fallen blood of Adam in you, leaves you under the dominion of the law of sin. It is a law, just like gravity – even its good is under the law of sin. You need a higher, new, explosive law to overthrow it, the law of the Spirit of life in Messiah.
This new law releases the Spirit of God in the human spirit of those born-again of God.
“I have been crucified with Him” says the Bible. I’ve got news for you! If you have been crucified with Him, you have also been raised with Him and you are now truly born-free!
John 3:3 “Unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
I walked away from my own funeral:
After I died and was buried, back in the 70s, I suddenly arose and walked away from my own burial, with guests standing around looking on. Have you been to own funeral yet? – You need to. Of course I’m talking about water baptism and the powerful symbolism and testimony contained within it.
The word “baptismo” means to fully immerse like you would do with a coffin. It is not “sprinkling!”
After our Lord’s baptism the Holy Spirit descended and remained on Him. The Spirit of God alights on, and remains on holiness!
The entire earth had its baptism in water in the days of Noah. Death killed the sin of the world. The peace dove returned after the judgement. But sin returned and now judgement is coming again, this time by supernatural fire.
Be aware that Satan is the god of peace too. But his peace is full of sin and evil and unredeemed blood. Our God is the God of true, deep peace and righteous judgement, and war on all sin.
After the whole world goes into the brokenness of its soon coming judgement and destruction, out of that comes a new, pure, sanctified, world – the Millennium, which will be glorious.
We see the same principle of death producing life in many things. Fruit is fully contained in “embryo” form, within the seed. It goes into the ground, dies and then only do we see and taste the good fruit. The fruit bears no resemblance to the seed. It is totally different, yet related by birth.
And modern man thinks he’s okay in his own strength? Crazy, I say!
The rapture is the ultimate spiritual E=MC².
1 Corinthians 15:51-52 “Behold, I tell you mystery; we shall not all sleep (die) but we shall be changed – in a moment in a twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet, (for church age) for the trumpet will sound and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”
This is amazing! Now let’s look at the incredible meaning of the word “moment” above:
●“Moment” Strong’s G823, - “Atomos.” Meaning: The smallest division of time possible, or an ‘atom’ of time. This word is derived from G5114 – “Tomos.” Meaning: Sharp, single instant stroke or blow.
It's the only occurrence of this word in the Bible, and there will only be one atomic rapture!
The end of the end-times will see the world go - atomic bang (E=MC²) But before it does, true Christians will go - atomic bang (E=MC²)! The former will be destructive and the latter constructive. The former will be from atomic bombs and warfare, the latter will be the rapture!
The dead in Messiah will be raised to glorious new life at rapture too.
Hosea 13:14 “I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death. O death, I will be your plagues! O grave, I will be your destruction.”
“O death where is your sting?” (1 Corinthians 15:55)
Habakkuk 3:3-4 “His glory covered the heavens and the earth was full of His praise. His brightness was like the light; He had rays flashing from His hand, and there His power was hidden.”
Our Lord will soon descend to cloud level, hold out His miraculous, supernatural, cross-marred hands, now full of incredible power and say:
“Come up here!” (Revelation 4:1)
1 Corinthians 6:14 “God raised up the Lord and will also raise us up by His power.”
The world and its media-mouth, uses intellect and reason to further its cause, as if that is a god. They think, like the Babylonians that they are building a life-tower to God! But it’s all rotten to the core – born of cursed dust, fallen blood, sweat and tears of useless grief – all destined for hell.
The bricks of Babel, made with mud, mixed with sin-sick blood, tried to reach God in the clouds. Actually, they tried to be a god! Contrast all of that with the real deal, true, miraculous rapture of believers cleansed by spiritual E=MC²!
Our truth is alive, full of light, and full of spiritual power, building for eternity.
All of creation (natural) is awaiting the manifestation of the sons of God. (Romans 8:19-21) Note that the expectation of creation is not anything the unsaved can do, or have done with all their environmentalism and “save the world” efforts.
All creation is awaiting us at the rapture and beyond, because that is when nature will be born free.
The great, mysterious power of the cross of Calvary, working in us, gives us power to die to self and the world, power to become the children of God, power to live, power to heal, power over the enemy, the power of wisdom, and much, more.
Our Lord will soon fly out of heaven to meet us in the air. We will then return with Him to Jerusalem seven years later, all riding on mysterious, flying, supernatural white horses. But before all of this, our Lord rode into Jerusalem on a donkey. The donkey comes before the miraculous white horse.
This is a type of the cross coming before supernatural resurrection. So, for now, we too ride our donkeys waiting for the atomic explosion that will rock will the world and leave donkeys in the dust.
We can still live our donkey-lives now in victory, if we apprehend and apply the biblical principles contained in us by promise and by our position in Messiah. If not, we will stagger through the world like an exhausted donkey about to die.
Living under the power of this evil age produces stress and anxiety. That’s because the primary source of sustenance is the cursed dust of the ground in Adam’s unredeemed blood.
Today, many have no hope. They are bound to a donkey. They have no sight of eternal glory. They are feeding of cursed ground resulting in stress, anxiety, disquiet and misery.
So many people around the world speak of a sense of foreboding, of impending doom but they don’t know why, or what to do about it.
I’ve put the following verses together from Psalm 102, including only the main points. This pre-figures the Holocaust, but also the personal psychological stress of people falling apart at the seams.
Psalm 102:3-11 “My days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned. My heart is stricken like withered grass. My bones cling to my skin. I lie awake like a bird alone. My enemies reproach me all day long. Those who deride me, swear an oath against me. I have eaten ashes for bread and mixed my drink with tears. Your indignation and wrath have cast me away. My days are like a shadow that lengthens, and I wither away like grass...”
The answer is death and new-birth - death to self, the world and the demonic, and then new thinking, new acting and newness of life. As things grow darker for the world the light will grow bright. Where sin abounds, grace does much more abound.” (Romans 5:20)
Many have a superficial idea that Christianity is designed to make them a better person. It is not. Any religion can do that, and they do! It’s designed to kill you, raising you up a new type of person!
The rapture of the church is an instant stroke of atomic destruction of our present material creation, leaving behind the flesh nature, the world-system and the demonic.
When you taste of the age to come, you quickly lose your taste for this world, and rightly so. Let me tell you that it is impossible to love the world and remain fully faithful to the Lord.
Here we have no continuing city. Man can continue to build as many Babel’s of betterment as he likes, but thank God for the soon coming New Jerusalem which continues forever.
You don’t compromise with the power of a cross! The compromiser has no cross. He is an enemy of the cross. (Philippians 3:18)
I took these pictures in the spectacular Makgadikgadi Desert. It is the largest salt pan in the world, surrounded by incredible wildlife and wilderness. This is Kubu Island.
