- The Kurds in Syria call on Russia and the Assad regime for help. Bear in mind that this stage of the war broke out on Yom Kippur, the day of the anniversary of the Six-Day War, which was essentially about getting Jerusalem back into Jewish hands.
- Although the US withdrawal from Syria has thrown the region into chaos, from a biblical, prophetic point of view, we are seeing an alignment of prophetic wars and their involved nations, all lining up. These are the wars of Syria / Damascus, (Isaiah 17) Gog & Magog (Ezekiel 38 &39 and Psalm 83. There are 10 nations mentioned in the Psalm 83 war and nine nations in the Gog / Magog war. Some of the nations overlap indicating that this could all be one big war.
- Russia comes in to fill the void left by the US in Syria."Jerusalem spooked by Russia's growing control over the Midle East." (Times of Israel 18 October.)
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
Matthew 21:15 “When the chief priests and the scribes (Media) saw the wonderful things that He did...they were indignant.”
Matthew 23:13 “Woe to you scribes, (Media) Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven for men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.”
Deuteronomy 27:18 “Cursed is he who makes the blind to wander out of the way of God.” (Media)
Jeremiah 8:6, 9 “Everyone turned to his own course... Look the false pen of the scribe certainly works falsehood...The wise men are ashamed, and dismayed and taken. Behold, the have rejected the word of the Lord; so what wisdom do they have.” (Media)
Isaiah 30:1 “Woe to the rebellious children, says the Lord, who take counsel, but not of Me, and who devise plans, but not of My Spirit, that they may add sin to sin.” (Media)
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.
18th October 2019
Shabbat Shalom to all!
- There is still no Israeli government in sight as Bennie Gantz rejects Netanyahu’s latest offer to form a unity government. But Gantz says he is thinking about it. It is this impasse that is delaying the release of the “Deal of the Century.”
- AThe US brokered ceasefire in Syria is falling apart one day after it was instituted! Mike Pompeo tells Netanyahu this morning (18th October) that the US will still support Israel.
- Late breaking news is that this morning 18th October, the ceasefire has broken down with renewed fighting, shelling and bombing in the region of the ceasefire as smoke rises from towns.
- Iran says it will continue to violate the nuclear deal as it moves to higher levels of uranium enrichment, provoking the world and Israel in particular.
- The Russian bear is making serious, strategic advances in Syria and in the wider Middle East. Iran and Turkey are fateful players, preparing the way for WW111 (The war of Gog and Magog, Syria and others. We are witnessing a very fast reshuffling of the stage.
- What we are seeing in the Middle East is battle for power and control – all perfectly prophesied!
Israel has a beady eye on it all. Prophetically, Israel must be a key component of these wars. It really doesn’t matter who does what, because prophecy will and is being fulfilled!
By the way, because the Bible prophecies certain things that does not mean it is sanctioning those things. They will come to pass right or wrong.
Bible interpretation and application:
In this report I want to draw your attention to some very important issues relating to our understanding of the Bible. These issues have always been important, but now as we head into these dangerous end-times, it is of critical importance.
We need to understand that Bible prophecy comes in various forms. Sometimes it is written directly for the present time exclusively. For example, the prophecies of Isaiah 17 relating to the soon coming destruction of Damascus, Syria, have never had an occurrence in history. Therefore its interpretation and application is for one point in time – now.
Then, we have many prophecies that were events that took place historically. That would be the interpretation. But they may have application to future events. This is called prophecy with a double reference. In these cases you need to be well disciplined in your application. Never take and application or analogy too far!
In dealing with prophetic application you must always be on guard against presumption. You really do need the gifts of the Spirit to correctly see into prophecy. Bear in mind that the word of God is useless, dead letter, or it is alive and presently speaking. The baptism in the Spirit makes the difference.
Sometimes a prophetic vision or message may be built on a number of different sources, and like a grand conductor, the Spirit of God puts it all together.
Prophetic interpretation and application must not contradict any verse in the Bible.
There is much to be said about prophetic dreams and visions. Personally, I don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater, but I’m very cautious. More so from whom they originate.
But, the Bible says that there will be an increase in dreams and vision as the end approaches. We must be watchful, but also watchful in relation to whom these dreams and visions come from, because many, in their pride, are on the manipulation band wagon!
The central purpose behind all prophecy is to reveal and inform us about the coming of our Lord, It is o give us knowledge, understanding, wisdom and sight of His soon coming and all the events surrounding His coming. It is bring Israel face to face with her Messiah.
Bible prophecy also reveals the work of the enemy. It reveals the modern kiss of Judas in replacement theology!
Time is very short!
We must always beware of spiritual novices with some of these gifts. Many of them create a big mess, which has to be unravelled.
We must always be aware of the spirit in and behind certain Bible teachers and ministers. Too many have a pride and ego problem, which the devil uses to bring in great error. Too many are subtly creating division, which becomes a sect and finally a cult!
Beware of those who come with forcefull "private or personal interpretations". (2 Peter 1:20)
Here is a shocking portion of scripture:
1 Corinthians 1:10-13 “I plead with you brethren, by the name of our Lord, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgement...Now I say to you this, that each of you says, ‘I am of Paul’, or ‘I am of Apollos’, or ‘I am of Cephas’, or ‘I am of Christ.’ Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptised in the name of Paul?”
This scripture above is a terrible indictment on the church. Today we see so clearly, the disastrous effects of a church divided. Yet we still the proud and arrogant, trying to “capture” and control people in their divisive sects.
There is strength in unity. There is extra strength in godly unity. In these days a solid Spirt-led knowledge of God’s word is an absolute necessity and a safety net
You should listen to no one who has does not have the evidence and fruit of listening to, and understanding the voice of God. There are many voices out there, all vying for your attention. Learn to be discerning and shut off the voices of the world.
In your pursuit of God and in your own study time, you need to be seriously disciplined. I heard someone say the other day: “They’ve taken away discipline in the schools now the children don’t respect us, their parents anymore.”
How true and tragic that statement is. It applies jus as well to your relationship with our Lord. No discipline no respect for Him and don’t expect to get anything from Him.
Part of our discipline involves waiting patiently for our Lord. What alternative do we have? But keep your spiritual eyes and ears open. Things may suddenly develop very fast!
Edition 436: September 25th 2018
Plagues for today:
This edition may shock you. It should. But that is fine, because there is another glorious, positive side to this tragic story. My prayer for you is that these things profoundly impact you for our Lord’s glory.
Stand tall modern man! God will strike you down soon!
Plagues: Strong’s H4046 “Maggephah.” Meanings: divine judgement, slaughter, strike down.
History repeats itself. Mankind is slow to learn from mankind’s history. The clever intellectuals are the slowest to learn from history – always. They should learn that it is the spirit in them mixed with pride, which is the origin of their big problem.
The things in this edition reveal a consistent thread running through the ages.
The ten plagues of Egypt:
Exodus 14:7 to Exodus 11:36.
The ten plagues of Egypt were: ●Water tuned to blood. ●An invasion of frogs. ●An infestation of lice. ●Wild animals gone wild. ●Diseased livestock. ●Boils. ●Storms, hail and fire. ●An invasion of locusts. ●Darkness that could be felt for three days. ●Death of firstborn.
The plagues had the effects of: Causing thirst, starvation, sores, sicknesses, injury, blindness, deaths, stress, distress and despair.
These plagues are again found amongst the seven end-time plagues of the book of Revelation. They are also found in various forms amongst the curses of Deuteronomy 28 and Hosea 4.
Biblical plagues and curses are very similar. Plagues tend to be of a shorter duration, while curses can last for many generations.
The seven plagues of the Revelation include great earthquakes, much demon activity and false signs.
The plagues of Egypt were upon Egypt for their refusal to release the Jews. Today, the coming plagues will be up the whole world, of which Egypt is a type.
What are the modern plagues?
They will be much the same. They may manifest differently and there will be extras thrown in. The effects will be the same, but more dramatic, as the tribulation period gets underway.
Drug use is one the extra, modern plagues about to go into overdrive, but have a look at this:
Sorcery: Strong’s G5331: “Pharmakeia.” Meanings: “Sorcery, witchcraft, poisoning, drugs, seduction, magical remedies. The word “pharmacy” or “chemist” is derived from this word.
Mind alerting drugs of any type are aligned biblically with sorcery and witchcraft. This is why so many hooked on drugs always spiral downwards.
The reason for the plagues of Egypt:
There is one huge, enormous, overpowering lesson to be learnt from the plagues. Few know it, and few have learnt the lesson – to their shocking soon-coming detriment.
It’s all about the treatment of Israel, and standing in the way of God’s plans for Israel.
The plagues are coming again for the exact same reasons as the original ones!
Exodus 8:1, 9:1, 10:3 “The Lord spoke to Moses and said, go to Pharaoh and say to him, ‘Let My people go that they may serve Me. But if you refuse to let them go, these plagues will come upon you...’”
Pharaoh refused to repent and let them go, so God hardened his heart, which is always a dangerous by-product of lack of repentance.
The call to Pharaoh was to let the children of Israel go so that they could serve and worship the true God. The call was to release them from socio-political slavery and religious bondage to idolatry.
The children of Israel were finally free and on their way to the Promised Land. It is not clever to pursue them, or obstruct God’s plans! Yet the world is doing just that today!
The Egyptian army pursued them after their release, and suddenly found out that they couldn’t live underwater for long.
Jericho also got in the way of the children of Israel, on their way to the Promised Land and soon became a pile of blasted trumpet-rubble.
Judgement is a most holy thing. It is righteous, positive and loving. It releases truth!
The reasons for the return of the plagues today:
The end-time plagues will be major worldwide components of the seven year tribulation.
The plagues of Egypt were to “let My people go so that they could worship Me.”
The end-time plagues will be all about “letting My people” to their land for final salvation.
The world has already made up its mind about Israel. Like Pharaoh, they now have hard hearts! Today, the world refuses to “let My people go” to Israel, so that they can serve the Lord only. The world wants “My people” under Islam!
Satan’s plan is to create one world under the antichrist. Gods plan is to create one Israel under Him, taking salvation to those who will repent.
Israel must forever be the home of the Jews. It must be independent from the world’s one-world under Satan. It must not be taken over by Islam. That is not God’s plan. Islam can live in Israel, but under the control of Israel and the Jews.
Exodus 19:5-6 “Now, if you (Israel) will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people, for all the earth is Mine. And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priest and a holy nation...”
●Moses, the servant of God, delivered the ten plagues to Egypt. ●Moses, the servant of God, delivered the Ten Commandments to the children of Israel. The plagues came because Egypt had kept the children of Israel captive and would not let them go. The Ten Commandments came on the release of the Jews to keep them pure and holy.
The typology here is of major significance:
Everything of Egypt (a type of the world) is cursed to ultimate judgement by terrible destruction. The Ten Commandments, a type of salvation, is offered to all. But beware, the world will still come after you, but will run into God’s judgement!
So, the story is simple: Rejoice as Israel goes free and now sits on the Sinai of spiritual salvation. Don’t be so dumb as to try and prevent it, or stand in God’s way.
More than half the world is blind and deaf to their own stupidity in this regard. They can’t see that they are Egypt heading for a bloody Red Sea drowning, in terror and tribulation.
Here is the first amazing prophecy in the Bible of the tribulation and Israel’s victory. The word “distress” here is the tribulation:
Deuteronomy 4: 30-31 “When you are in distress and all these things come upon you in the latter days, when you turn to the Lord your God and obey His voice, He will not forsake you, nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers, which He swore to them.”
The result of the great end-time distress will be: “Let My people go,” to fulfilment in their salvation.
So, Moses as the agent of God told Pharaoh, the agent of Satan, to “Let My people go.” He would not, so God sent terrible plagues on Egypt, the agent of the world-system.
Now, many moons later, Moses as one of the two witnesses, will tell the antichrist – the god of the world, again to let My people go from slavery to worldliness, the approach of Islam and the rule of internationalism. Again the answer from the world is, no! So God sends tribulation, - the Great Tribulation, and a heap of end-time plagues upon the world!
Israel goes free and fulfils God’s purposes to the horror of the world and its media-mouth, and its religious wolves, all drowning in the blood-red sea of their own foolishness.
So, did the world learn anything from the history of Egypt and Moses back then? Naw not at all! Like modern day Pharaohs bedecked in intellectual pride, exalted above God, the EU, the UN and the many nations line up like rabid wolves to be led to God’s plague-filled Holocaust upon them.
You know world; if you weren’t so stupid, blind and deceived by the devil, you would not have to go to your atomic Holocaust and end up as radio-active vulture food!
Thankfully, the true church of the living God will go in the atomic rapture first. See Edition 429 HERE.
These three scriptures below, describe God’s coming Holocaust of plagues and destruction upon the world in the tribulation period. You should know them well, in spite of idiots who say, don’t read things like this! These verses are God’s warnings of love to you. His love is just and holy!
Psalm 21:8-12 “Your hand will find all Your enemies; Your right hand will find those who hate You. You shall make them as a fiery oven in the time of Your anger; The Lord shall swallow them up in His wrath, and the fire shall devour them. Their offspring You shall destroy from the earth, and their descendants from among the sons of men. For they intended evil against You; they devised a plot that they were not able to perform. Therefore You will make them turn their backs; You will make ready Your arrows on Your string towards their faces.”
Isaiah 2:10-12 “Enter into the rock, hide in the dust from the terror of the Lord and the glory of His majesty. The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day. For the day of the Lord of hosts shall come upon everything lifted up...”
Zephaniah 1:15-17 “That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of devastation and desolation , a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, a day of trumpet and alarm against the fortified cities and against the high towers. I will bring distress upon men, and they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord; their blood shall be poured out like dust, and their flesh like refuse.”
Our Lord is a God love, mercy and forgiveness but you must include, justice. That completes the picture. Leave that out and it all becomes messy and relative to man.
For the church, justice is the cross of Calvary, and the result is holiness.
It is love to warn someone of impending danger!
Deuteronomy 30:19 “...I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may live.”
Joel 3:14 “Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.”
All the socio-political, economic and religious aspects of the world now, are heading fast for the great separation. The world is heading for the banquet of thieves, the feast of vultures (Matthew 24:28), while the godly are heading for the Lamb’s banquet and marriage feast. (Revelation 19:6-7)
One of the commands given by Moses to Pharaoh was this:
Exodus 5:1 “Thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘Let my people go, that they may hold a feast to me in the wilderness.”
Today, Satan’s plan for Israel, constructed and inspired by the liberal left, and promoted by the masters of fake news – the mass media, is to create a one-world government, a one-world currency and a one-world religion headed by none other than the media’s best friend to be, – the antichrist.
This is why the world is opposed to independent nationalism in favour of internationalism. The liberal left are working with Satan now, unbeknown to them.
Unity, universalism , love, happiness, wild unrestrained homosexual sex, virtues of the pits, values of the scum of the earth, are all the ingredients for the new post-truth, one-world of ‘peace’, which they say must include Israel!
They have a nasty shock coming – horror of horrors and plagues! Their world will go up in stench-filled smoke. They all become a feast for vultures! (Matthew 24:28) No gurney required!
The plague-carrying United Nations (UN):
The United Nation (UN) Headquarters in Israel is built right on the “Hill of Evil Council.” This hill is so named because it was where the palace of Pontius Pilate once stood. This was where Judas met him to plan the betrayal of our Lord. Not much has changed, I would say!
Talk about having your home on cursed ground!
Even after Pharaoh let the children of Israel go due to the plagues, they still pursued Israel. That is a powerful type of the UN’s recognition of the State of Israel in 1948, but still pursuing them today.
Guess where the UN is going to end up?
The UN is the prince of pretenders. They are the backstabbers of God’s word. They are the swindler-swines, and phony charlatans of the devil’s world and plans.
Remember, sweet world, that you will soon be stained red with your own blood!
The Red Sea event was a type of the tribulation period which will kill the world in pursuit of Israel, and lead to the mass salvation of the Jews. It will most certainly be a “sea turned to blood.”
A new Promised Land lies before Israel. It is called the Millennium or the New Jerusalem for those who get saved before the tribulation.
World, before you is the gate of glory or the gate of tears and hell! Pick your choice wisely!
Much of the church with Egypt and Babylon still inside of them, are the restrainer of Israel coming to the Lord. They have polluted the church with paganism, which keeps the Jews out!
The Roman church and its sidekicks have come against God’s plans for Israel since their cursed birth. They, like Egypt refuse to “let My people go” to their God ordained purpose plan and destiny. They have violated God’s word from the start and popularised anti-Semitism and replacement theology amongst all churches influenced by their Babylonian mixture.
God’s word says to take the gospel to the Jew first, then the Gentile. (Romans 1:16) God’s word says that we are to make the Jews jealous, with our knowledge of God. (Romans 11:11)So the Catholic church and its offshoots and especially all those of replacement theology, don’t obey that, but actually do the opposite!
They don’t take the gospel to the Jews at all and they make the Jews hate Christians because of their Babylonian paganism!
The return of the plagues:
The seven end-time plagues of the Revelation are likened to the destruction of Babylon. They are identical to the 10 plagues of Egypt, but remember that both Egypt and Babylon are types of the end-time world.
The following verses all describe various aspects of the next round of plagues:
Revelation 18:8 “Her (Babylon’s) plagues will come in one day – death and mourning and famine, and she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.”
Revelation 18:4 “I heard another voice from heaven saying, ‘come out of her (Babylon) My people, lest you share in her sins and lest you receive of her plagues.’”
Revelation 16:9 “Men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory.”
Revelation 11:6 “These (2 witnesses) have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues as often as they desire.”
Revelation 9:20 “The rest of mankind who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, they should not worship demons and idols of gold, silver, brass, wood and wood, which can neither see, nor hear nor walk.”
Jeremiah 50:13 “Because of the wrath of the Lord, she (Babylon) will not be inhabited, but she shall be wholly desolate. Everyone who goes to Babylon shall be horrified and hiss at all her plagues.”
The plagues and the rapture:
As soon as the tribulation begins the end-time plagues mixed with curses, scourges, and infestations will begin. Ancient plagues will be back – a deadly contagion of death, ravaging the world with the ●wrath of God, ●the wrath of Satan, ●the wrath of man and ●the wrath of nature.
The battle for Israel, Jerusalem and the salvation of the Jews will be underway.
The ten plagues of Egypt and others mentioned in the Old Covenant – were just that. They were part of the methods God used to deal with the world in pre-church era days. There is no biblical account or prophecy of any biblical-style plagues in the church age.
Yes there have been plagues in the last 2000 years, but none prophesied in the Bible. All modern plagues had no direct link to letting Israel go to serve the Lord.
But now we see the return of the biblical plagues – all in the tribulation period or dispensation.
That is a powerful proof of a pre-tribulation rapture. In the tribulation, things go back to that Old Covenant method of dealings and judgement.
There is a most powerful voice today, soon to be gone! That is the voice of the pro-Israel, anti-replacement theology, church standing with and for Israel in these days. This is a voice crying in the wilderness. Soon this voice will be silent, and saved Israel will be the new voice in the wilderness.
Isaiah 51:3 “The Lord will comfort Zion, He will comfort all her waste places; He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord; joy and gladness will be found in it, thanksgiving and the voice of melody.”
2 Chronicles 20:29 “The fear of God was upon all the kingdoms of those countries when they heard that the Lord had fought against the enemies of Israel. Then the Lord gave rest and quiet all around.”
Hosea 13:14 “I will ransom them (Israel) from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death. O death I will be your plagues! O graves, I will be your destruction!”
I took the background picture from a chopper flying over the Cathedral Peak range in the Drakensberg Mountains.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
