- US is to impose sanctions on Turkey for their action in Syria. This as the Kurds 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.
- Lightning strikes mosque on the Temple Mount as The Feast of Tabernacles gets underway. (BIN 16th October)

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 amazing feast season:
We come now to the end of the feast season for this year, with the last of the seven feasts Tabernacles (Sukkoth) beginning on Sunday 13th October.
This report is an overview of the seven feasts, and what is of major importance, and what it all points to in the near future, prophetically.
The seven feasts contain the four spring feasts and the three fall feats, with the Feast of Pentecost in the middle.
The Spring Feasts are Passover (the cross), Unleavened bread (holiness), First fruits (resurrection) and Pentecost (the church age). These four feasts occur in quick succession because the historic events of the cross through to resurrection and the coming of the Holy Spirit occurred in quick succession. (Keep that in mind)
The Fall Feasts are Rosh Hashanah (Trumpets.) Yom Kippur (Atonement), Sukkoth (Tabernacles.) These three fall feasts have not yet had their prophetic fulfilment. They also occur in quick succession of each other.
Rosh Hashanah begins the time period known as the “days of awe,” which refers to the solemn period of introspection, judgement and new beginnings.
Yom Kippur occurs eight days after Rosh Hashanah. It symbolises divine judgement and forgiveness, so that the individual may be cleansed of sin. In fact, in practice it is a day of fasting. It is the most solemn of the feasts of the Lord.
The Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkoth), occurs five days after Yom Kippur. This feast commemorates the historic original Exodus from Egypt into the wilderness. Prophetically it points to the coming spiritual exodus of the Jews from the Egypt, which is the world – to their Messiah and their eternal dwelling with Him. Temporary shelters are built symbolising Israel’s temporary dwelling in the wilderness on the way to The Promised Land and prophetically to the Millennium.
Many people especially the Catholics, reject the feasts and many change the order in violation of Leviticus 23:4 (Amp) “These are the set feasts or appointed seasons of the Lord, holy convocations you shall proclaim at their stated times.”
The feasts are permanently “set” in the times God has stated for them.
Christians do not need to celebrate the feasts in a legalistic manner, but we must at least identify with them and know well the major, important messages contained in them. (It is a blessing to celebrate them). You may not disregard their prophetic importance or change the order.
The feasts are not for the Jews only. The Bible calls them the Feasts of the Lord. But think about this: If you, as many do, say that the feasts are for the Jews only, then you have to say that the events of the cross are for the Jews only! Sorry Reverend Dumbish, you can’t cherry pick what suits you.
Amazing patterns in the Feasts:
There are many who teach that the rapture of the church will happen on one of days of Pentecost, because of certain associations of the rapture with Pentecost. They are all wrong.
Before we go any further please have a very good look at this diagram above.
I have pointed out before that Pentecost is a trumpet-less feast. The final three feasts are all associated with trumpets. The rapture is associated with trumpets. The rapture can only be on a Feast of Trumpets. There are many other reasons. But consider this:
I have mentioned the time periods between the feasts (diagram), for a good reason.
The time period between the first feast, Passover (the cross) and Pentecost (The church age), is very short. Then from the Feast of Pentecost to the next one, Rosh Hashanah (trumpets) is a long four months. That time period between the spring feasts and the fall feasts is called, “The long hot summer.” We are right now at the very end of the long hot summer, which ends with Rosh Hashanah (trumpets) and the final two in quick succession.
The reason for the long hot summer is because the church age is a long period of time compared to the time intervals between the other events, signified by feasts.
Do you see why the rapture can’t occur on a Feast of Pentecost? No it can’t - it just doesn't fit! The Feast of Pentecost was fulfilled by the start of the church age. It has been prophetically fulfilled. We are now at the very end of the long hot summer! There is no such thing as a feast having two prophetic fulfilments.
If the rapture has to happen on a Feast of Pentecost that would mean that the previous feast, Firstfruits, would have been fulfilled by the start of the church age! That would throw everything out of sync and make them all nonsensical.
It is most important to understand that the first four feasts, Passover to Pentecost were fulfilled by the events of the cross and the coming of the Holy Spirit. In terms of prophetic fulfilment these four feasts were and are for the born-again church exclusively.
Now as we come to the final three feasts a great, dramatic switch takes place. The coming fulfilment of these final, fall feasts are fulfilled by Israel and are for Israel.
Rosh Hashanah starts the tribulation; Yom Kippur will be fulfilled by the judgment of the wrath of God, and Sukkoth by the end of the tribulation, Second Coming and Millennium.
The church is not awaiting the tribulation, judgment on sin. That’s a done deal – at the cross. The church is not awaiting the tribulation and the wrath of God. The church is not awaiting the Second Coming. We will be returning with our Lord at that time. That’s all a done deal through the cross!
So the application and fulfilment of the fall feasts can only relate to Israel in the tribulation. The first four feasts are within the “mystery” that is the church and the three final feasts are outside of the mystery which is the church.
This is one of many reasons why Rosh Hashanah has to see the removal of the church, ending the church age and starting the tribulation.
This Rosh Hashanah went by uneventfully, but not Yom Kippur, which is also the anniversary of the Yom Kippur War of 1967 in which Jerusalem was restored to Jewish control. Now on this Yom Kippur, we saw the actual invasion of northern Syria by Turkey begin – on the very day! This will, no doubt lead to the Isaiah 17 war and other prophesied wars into which Israel will be dragged in.
Do you see how amazing this is? Do you see how accurately and well the whole gigantic story is spelt out and plotted? How accurate the Bible is.
And the Catholics and their half-baked masses get rid of the feasts and replace them with the unholy, occult, pagan, satanic, pig-eating feats of Easter and Christmas, which have no prophetic message at all.
Bear in mind that Bible calls the Feasts of the Lord “Holy convocations!” Pagan practices that are world-based, originating in Babylon are all cursed!
Godly wisdom, like gold is the purest, oldest form of genuine wealth there is. It is an immense store of value that is indestructible. It pays great dividends! Follow those who have it and beware of those with a handful of glittering fool’s gold.
►There is a very interesting biblical alignment between these seven feasts and the seven mysteries of the Bible, which I’ll touch on in the new edition.
Edition 438: October 9th 2018
Psychological victory for today:
This edition flies in the face of much modern thinking.
I have written extensively on this subject in numerous editions, which you will find under the “Editions by Subject” button. But this is mostly new material (with oceans more still to come). The deep psychological problems of today will intensify greatly. A correct diagnosis is needed for a correct cure.”
The principles contained in this edition are age old and well-tested. I have fine-tuned them for today and the dayssoon to come. As we approach the end of this age of grace, these issues will multiply at an astounding rate. There is wonderful, glorious victory, exclusively for those who are of God.
Blessing, calm collected confidence, contentment, peace, tranquillity are here!
Sin, evil wickedness, judgement, truth, righteousness, holiness:
The headline, above and the image below, very succinctly describe and define the entire problem, solution, answer and the result.
The cross is the barrier, the impassable gulf, which separates the red from the blue. If you remove the cross you can’t get to the blue - ever! (Luke 16:26)
●The word sin means, “to miss the mark”, or “wander from the path” or “to violate God’s law.”
●The word evil means, “rooted in sin, bad, morally diseased, blind in a spiritual sense.”
●The word wicked means “guilty one, criminal, morally wrong, condemned, ungodly”.
These are not just word meanings! These, in particular have a powerful evil ‘anointing’ behind them creating slavery!
So, that’s man’s problem and everyone is born into the problem. The only way to deal with it all is through judgement. The cross is the instrument of judgement to salvation for the believer. Unbelievers await a terrifying judgement with no salvation, still to come.
Evil is essentially a person. His name is Satan. He does not like being restrained. That’s like keeping him in hand-cuffs.
Evil has many ‘sons’ which rear their cursed heads along the way. It is our job to behead them. If not they escape detection and cause much chaos.
The oldest son of Evil is named ‘pride.’ He is sneaky and deadly.
Pride is Satan’s ‘anointing’ on people! It flows down, lubricating the victim to serve Satan.
Many Christians mistake pride in a minster for anointing. They will both fall in the ditch.
Even the disciples did not see or recognise the proud traitor Judas, in their midst. (Joh17:12)
The world will fall for the antichrist. They will think his pride is God’s anointing! (1 John 2:18)
The wonderful, hidden safety net for today:
The world is going crazy. Many Christians are jumping on the crazy-wagon too. If ever there is a time for urgent, protective armour it is now. If you do not have this spiritual armour, I wish you the best of luck on your journey to crazy-land - psychological hell!
Spiritual armour is kept for distribution at God’s military depot called “The Armoury of Gifts.”
A most important, critical, yet largely ignored, piece of armour is your conscience. It is part of the “helmet of salvation.” (Ephesians 6:17)
A godly conscience is one of the convicting forces in your heart. Set it over your thoughts.
Your conscience is your very own judge residing in your heart. You can accept its ruling, or reject it. It doesn’t make decision for you, it just enlightens or condemns. A seared conscience is a most dangerous thing. It leaves you aimlessly adrift in this crazy world. (1Timothy 4:2)
A seared conscience is like leprosy, which deadens your nerve receptors to pain, leaving you vulnerable to much injury.
How do you sear your conscience? You do so by turning away from God’s word and comparing yourself with others and the world around you. You use your intellect and reason, above God’s word, and you do it often. You refuse to repent and obey the still-small voice in your heart.
If you have seared your conscience as a believer, it will be replaced with Satan’s conscience, which will alert you to the will of the masses, while you turn against God.
The believers conscience is one with the Holy Spirit, and alive to God. But when seared, you become alive to Satan’s will and program. A godly conscience is one of your saving graces in this day!
This is especially evident in teachers of the gospel. Once they have seared their conscience, their hearts are hardened in their pride. They then change established doctrine and attack those not in their sinking ship with them.
The majority of Christians today have a seared conscience. You can see it by what they listen to, watch, spend their time on, and by their neutrality on the big sin-issues of the day. They have no compunction, remorse, contrition and no repentance. They have stabbed their own conscience in the heart.
A seared conscience makes you delusional with a propensity to become a moral monster. It gives you a false sense of security, a false peace, and keeps guilt entrenched in you. The end result is that you will be totally useless to God and His kingdom.
A seared conscience opens the door to much demonic activity, and leads you right into many curses. If you are silent in the face of so much evil and error today, that is proof enough that your conscience is seared and you are on the doorstep of hell.
We see a classic case of people with a seared conscience in Romans 1:18 and onwards, where these people who practise or support homosexuality have been handed over to be controlled by their lusts. Three times in this one chapter they are handed over! Their conscience is gone.
In the tribulation period we see masses tuning on God and cursing Him because of the judgements, – all a sign of people with a seared conscience!
Here is a great description of a person with a seared conscience (In contra-position):
Psalm 119:53 “Indignation (Lit=horror) has taken hold of me because of the wicked who forsake your word.”
That shows David with a godly conscience. Those with a seared conscience have no horror at the world’s wickedness and are therefore totally useless to God’s kingdom, although they dance and prance around the pulpit, leading their blind ones.
Today the world is speeding into unrestrained evil and doom, and yet most of the church sits idly by, giving silent, moral support to the devil, because they have no conscience anymore. With your conscience seared you are well on the way to becoming a Christian psychopath!
The good news is that you can get a godly conscience back again, if you have seared it. But it is very costly. You will have to change your ways, your friends, your thinking and all your priorities. Our Lord is the God of many second chances!
The restrainer of evil:
The well-taught Christian knows well that they themselves are the biblical “restrainer”. The true church, filled with the Spirit of God restrains the antichrist from being released into the world, which is soon to come. (2 Thessalonians 2:6)
In a certain wonderful sense, a godly conscience is our own personal restrainer. Do you see why a seared conscience is so dangerous? It’s because the family of Satan – sin, evil and wickedness, come in like a flood.
I hope you see where else this takes us!
A pre-tribulation rapture of the restraining force – the church, must occur before the antichrist can even appear on the world stage.
The rapture leaves the world with no conscience and no restraint of evil! Yes, Israel will take over the great commission in the tribulation, but in the face of terrible evil.
The heart of the criminal mind is to come against its restrainer of evil, which to them is the law. If you remove the restraining law, you have anarchy and a world of evil and sin. In this regard, the law of the land is a type of the Spirit-filled church – the restrainer.
The Old Covenant law was also a restrainer of evil. On the day of Pentecost, it was removed and shifted into the hearts of believers. What happened then? The dispensation changed to the church age. Now we are on verge of the rapture of the church – those with the law in their hearts. What will happen? How right you are! Yes, the dispensation will change again, completing Daniel’s 70th week, amidst unrestrained evil and wickedness!
The end result of the effects of the cross and the Great White Throne judgment is: An end of transgression and sin and everlasting righteousness. (Daniel 9:24)
Modern man – with the heart of a dumb turkey:
Jeremiah 10:23 “O Lord, I know the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man who walks to direct his own steps.”
Jeremiah 17:5 “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart departs from the Lord.”
Note the two verses below:
**Isaiah 7:9 “...If you will not believe, you will not be established.”
**Isaiah 54:14 “In righteousness you shall be established.”
Note the two verses below:
**Isaiah 59:8-9 “They have made themselves crooked paths; whoever takes that way shall not know peace. Therefore justice is far from us. We look for light, but there is darkness! For brightness but we walk in blackness.”
**Isaiah 32:17 “The work of righteousness will be peace and the effects of righteousness quietness and assurance forever.”
So, in these four verses above we see two clear cut distinct ways and options, with no middle ground and with clear results.
I often wonder why God said in His word “I set before life and death, blessing and cursing – choose life.” (Deuteronomy 30:19) Well, isn’t that obvious! Why say “choose life”? Apparently people are dumb turkeys and need a little help from their God.
The value of the counsel of the secular psychologist is no more than gobble, gobble, gobble!
Biblical psychology blows secular psychology out of the water – never the twain shall meet!
At the end of the day, secular psychology makes you hard-hearted. Biblical psychology makes you humble-hearted and a recipient of the miracle workings of the cross.
The main thing with all forms of secular psychology is not to make you better, but to change your value system under the auspices of the chief shrink – Satan. All modern psychology tries to take you back into the recesses of your mind to find things, situations or people to pin the blame on for your erratic behaviour or stress.
We go back too, all the way to the cross. We pin all the blame for all our sin on that cross and we are free indeed – forever!
The only way you can fix all the psychological problems of mankind is by going back – far back and being unborn of Adam and then being born-again of the “last Adam.” Then you can receive and know the counsel of God and His wonderful ways.
Psalm 50:15 “Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you and you shall glorify Me.”
No matter how far back you go, you run into Adam! His unredeemed blood is actually the root of the problems and only the blood of Messiah at the cross can fix it. That’s why secular psychology fails totally – they go back and look in the wrong place!
When your psychologist takes you back to find someone to blame, you end up blaming them and holding them in unforgiveness. You charge them and hold them guilty, but it makes you a monster, because unforgiveness makes you guilty and that eats you alive and makes you a hot-head!
Bear in mind that the believer going to the unbelieving psychologist receives a transfer of illigitimate spirits as well, further compounding his problems. When, in counsil, we go back to our Lord and His word, we receive the additional transfer of His pure Spirit.
Only the Bible under the leading of the Spirit of God has all the answers to man’s problems.
Man is accountable for his own actions. People don’t like that. They want to pin the blame on others so that their own sin-nature can go free.
Psalm 18:1-6 “I will love You, O Lord my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; my God, my strength...In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried out to my God. He heard my voice from His temple and my cry came before His ears.”
Psalm 18:20 “The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands, He has recompensed me.”
If you are born again of the Spirit of God, learn to beat a path to your heart. There you will find a wellspring of pure undefiled holy truth, stillness and quiet. It’s there – right in your heart.
The unbeliever beats a path to his heart and finds it pumping Adam’s sin-filled blood, polluted with the law of the sin-nature, which is sin and death.
With a clear, well-defined, biblical point of reference in our lives for all things we can fly high and right. Our world view becomes clear and we are free.
I recall in my younger days as a pilot, we were taught always to turn to, and trust our instruments when we couldn’t see the horizon clearly, due to imbedded clouds. Sometimes as I looked out of the cockpit, I would see false horizons in the clouds, which normally cause you to trim the aircraft wrongly. But the instruments said: “Hey watch out buddy, your eyes are deceiving you!”
In this day of many dark dangerous clouds, only the ‘instruments’ of God’s word are truly correct and safe to keep you secure and right with God. He is our glorious reference point for all things.
Isaiah 33:6 “Wisdom and knowledge (of God) will be the stability of your times and strength of salvation; the fear of the Lord is His treasure.”
What an amazing verse (above.) We need this stability in these end-times! That word “stability” comes from the root word for “gyro.” Gyroscopic instruments are used to set the course of an aircraft as well as giant ships, sailing through the storms.
Human rights and the media:
People get easily offended and become a lit fuse when their human rights, especially the ones given by Satan, are challenged.
You may get your rights, but beware, one of these days you will be shown no mercy. You will get justice for all your hidden sin!
When you yield to a situation it brings in grace. It releases forgiveness and makes right. When your self-life is offended try yielding!
Obviously we don’t yield to the devil, but in personal relationships, it works wonders.
When you won’t let an offence against you go, you are harbouring bitterness, and it will bounce back on you. A root of bitterness poisons many! (Hebrews 12:15)
Psalm 119:165 “Great peace have they that love Your word and nothing causes them to be offended.”
The mark of godly maturity is when we don’t please self, but deny and die to self. Taking up our cross means laying down our lives for others.
The mass-media teaches you unforgiveness and revenge. They make you hard hearted and proud. They lead you to the heart of the devil. The true work of the cross does not enter the hard-hearted. Ask Israel about that!
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)
“Taking counsel, not of Me,” is taking counsel from the media and the masses. Note that the sin they produce expands, grows and intensifies!
Jeremiah 7:28 “You shall say to them, ‘This is a nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God, nor receive correction. Truth has perished and been cut off from their mouth.’” (Media)
The media can only lead you the wrong way because they are born of Adam and driven by the proud god of this world – Satan. They are 'annointed' by him!
How do you know whether you are on the right track? ●You will overcome Satan, sin, the world, the flesh and the demonic. ●You will live with a deep inner contentment and inner peace. ●Your lifestyle will be holy. ●You will be led out of all error and into all truth and ●see things to come.
In my own case, personally, because I believe we are very close to all these end time events breaking out, I have spent a lot of prayerful time in general repentance, fasting, and examining my faith, with special emphasis on cleaning up every aspect of my thought life.
Those going the wrong way will always be unstable, have an inner restlessness, and never be satisfied. They will be unable to overcome sin and the world, and will be blind to biblical things to come.
A wrong diagnosis will result in a wrong cure, which exacerbates the problem!
Genesis 6:5 “The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continuously.”
Man is accountable. The secular psychologist will never use the word sin. They pass no judgement on sin. Renaming sin is legitimising it.
Psalm 51:4 David: “Against You only have I sinned.”
Renaming sin does not remove its heart and change it to righteousness. Only the cross removes sin and delivers you to righteousness. If you remove the cross, you have to replace it with something. Psychologists replace the cross with useless psycho-babble!
If the psychologist could have total success with someone, that person would still end in hell.
1 John 3:21 “If our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God.”
Satan, with his agents, the media and the secular psychologist, camouflage the sin-nature and disguises it, making it your great friend! But that nagging guilt hangs in there, refusing to go, and wreaks havoc.
Modern thinking has simply removed the word sin, or rationalised it, but its heart remains evil, full of Satan and his ways!
If you reject the ways of God, you have to believe that man is inherently good.
The fear of God is the way to stability. The fear of God includes the fear of hell! That is the way to mental health.
The closer to God you get, the more dramatic the changes will be in you and the more rocked, shocked and astounded you will be...all for glory!
It’s a true glory story!
Psalm119:108 “Teach me your judgements, Lord and I will learn righteousness.”
There is a way out of stress, strain and anxiety. You can leave your mental ball and chain behind. Stop playing the blame game – there are no winners.
Our Lord is calling you to a new holiness a new dimension of your walk with Him. You must be different, above, flying higher than before. Turn your back on the cowards of the word walling in the cow-dung
Isaiah 43:13 “...I work and who can reverse it?”
So, just join the winners! – Choose life.
I took the background picture in the Okavango Delta and combined it with one of my elephant sunset pictures.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
