Shabbat Shalom to all!
Who owns your truth?
Jeremiah 2:11-13 “Has a nation changed its gods, which are not gods? But My people have changed their glory, for what does not profit. Be astonished O heavens at this, and be horribly afraid. Become very desolate says the Lord. For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters and hewn for themselves broken cisterns that can hold no water.”
Many people are at a crossroad right now. Which way they go will bring them great victory or deep darkness!
Jeremiah 13:15-16 “Hear and give ear; do not be proud, for the Lord has spoken. Give glory to the Lord your God, before He causes darkness, and before your feet stumble on the dark mountains, and while you are looking for the light, He turns it into the shadow of death and makes it dense darkness.”
Job 21:14 “They say to God, ‘depart from us, for we do not desire the knowledge of Your ways.’”
We have a growing divide right now between the godless liberal left and those that stand for a nation under God. The divide is actually correct, because “two can’t walk together unless they be agreed.”
O f course political parties don’t agree that’s normal, but all should agree on one ultimate authority and provider of truth – God and His word. The basic principles of the virtues of God should be held in esteem above the law of the land or politicians in all nations.
The removal of the word of God from society places it in godless jeopardy with Satan and his word now the authority. Pelosi is a good example of that. So many things get removed from society when the Bible is removed including the all important four swords revealed in the Bible:
●The sword of murder, ●the sword of Capital punishment, ●the sword of war, ●the sword of the Spirit.
If you remove the Bible’s definition of murder (homicide) it sends a message of tolerance with crime and destroys deterrence. If you remove the sword of capital punishment, you meet out injustice to the victim. If you remove the sword of war, you create a nation of push-over pacifists. If you remove the sword of the Spirit, you remove the authority of the believer and make him defenceless.
This is the way to weaken a nation right at its foundation. It is the way of liberals!
You need to be aware of this and the intensifying evil spirits at work otherwise, you are in big danger.
The great reset will produce the great eternal regret at the end of the day.
You can attack the truth, but remember, God owns the truth. You are attacking Him. The Bible may bleed for a few seconds, but it will be you who will eventually and eternally!
God owns the truth, and if the truth is in you are owned by Him and are unshakable, safe and secure. The truth is unbreakable and unchangeable. It will break those who try to break it, it always does.
The political mayhem is one side of the present day troubles. The mutating virus is the other. Both are changing the very face of the world right before us.
On top of the socio-political upheavals on the go, the virus is mutating and spreading faster than before. These things are all causing great stress in the world.
►Will things return to normal? Absolutely not! A vaccine is not a substitute for repentance. You can’t take a pill or get a vaccination to remove the results of the disease of sin! (I am in no way coming against those who take the vaccine. I’m talking generally)
Will God accept a vaccination instead of repentance?
Things can only return to normal if we are far from the whole end-time train rolling in. We are not far, but very close to the whole picture unfolding.
Why is God calling loudly for repentance now through so many of His voices? It is because time is running out fast and He wants people as holy as possible, ready for heaven at the rapture. He is also preparing Israel for a sudden return to holiness, so that they can be effective witnesses and evangelists in the tribulation period.
It’s also because the world’s wickedness has gone into overdrive and is speeding up. It’s because of where we are on the grand prophetic calendar.
(By the way, I have some incredible revelation of some familiar verses on the rapture and Israel, which I will share soon. It will destroy some deeply held, but incorrect views.)
Don’t you think it’s interesting that the church has failed in her commission to the Jew, while the Jew in the tribulation will be very successful in taking the gospel to the Gentile!
The big reason for the rapture is not the great escape, although that is quite true. It is to bring in the last Gentile and then see the veil removed as the gospel goes to the Jew.
Matthew 23:37-38 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often have I want to gather your children together like a hen gathers her chicks under her wings. But you were not willing! See your house is left to you desolate.”
When Bible prophecy is on the march, what a terrible thing to be left behind and right out of it, with no idea of its existence and relevance!
►1 Thessalonians 5:20 “Do not despise prophesies.”
The word “despise” is Strong’s G1848 ‘Exoutheneo.’ Meanings: Despise, set at nought, make contemptible, not to be esteemed.
This verse above means you had better wake up fast to Bible prophecy, even if your parrot behind the pulpit won’t touch prophecy.
Most importantly, it also means that presumptuous, always-wrong prophecy teachers and watchmen are the very ones causing prophecy to be “set at nought” and “made contemptible, not to be esteemed”
False watchmen are prophecy killers and faith killers!
Proverbs 12:19 “The truthful lip shall be established forever, but a lying tongue is but for a moment.”
For your edification:
You need to be spiritually strong in these days. You must be clearly defined in who you are spiritually and in all areas of your life.
We have as part of the church the happy clappies and hands up church (me included) and the no-happy, no-clappies, hands down, boring, dead, denominational non-spirit filled crowd, with no insight except that of the world.
Even if you are not in a local church you need to be demonstrative in your walk with our Lord. Once you are Spirit filed, even in your home alone, raise your hands in prayer and clap your hands, and if your dog bites you, serves you right for hiding your spirituality.
Edition 444: November 20th 2018
A rapture ready heart:
Many people have tunnel vision as far as the rapture is concerned. They don’t want to pay the price to get their heart right before our Lord. It is much more important than you can imagine. Of course, the rapture is very important, but according to numerous (unpopular) verses, there will be far fewer that will be saved, and therefore rapture-ready than most people believe!
The soon-coming rapture will be a great shock for many who think they are right with God, who will be left behind to go through the seven-year tribulation period. Others will be saved, but will receive a puff of fast-disappearing smoke for their reward. Some will be richly, eternally, rewarded.
Don’t minimise the prize giving! “Run in such a way as to win the prize.”(1 Corinthians 9:24)
Job 27:6 “My righteousness I hold fast to, and I will not let it go. My heart shall not reproach me as long as I live.”
You can be rapture-ready or tribulation-ready! You are destined for the Throne or Rome!
Isaiah 29:15 “Woe to those who seek deep to hide their counsel far from the Lord, and their works are in the dark. They say, ‘who sees us and who knows us?’”
What a big mistake!
Presumption, based on the opinions of the masses, is a very costly mistake.
Many study the letter of the word (logos) and in their pride, gain much knowledge, “puffing themselves up.” They think they are seeking God, but they mix their knowledge in the blender, with worldly philosophy, and end up worse than before. (Colossians 2:8)
Job 40:8 (Amp) “Will you annul and render void My judgement? Will you condemn Me that you may appear righteous and justified?”
Note in the verse above that when people try to justify themselves and their worldly ways, they have to come against God.
Psalm 50:21 “You thought I (God) was altogether like you, but I will reprove you.”
Psalm 10:13 “Why do the wicked renounce God? He has said in his heart, ‘You will not require an account.”
These verses above are a shock indeed. They succinctly spell out the error of modern thinking. Tragically, a lot of these thoughts have come over into the church. In most cases, it is the counterfeit church, where these mistakes are found.
The pride of life:
A life of pride is a life exalted above God and His ways. It is deadly. (1 John 2:16)
Pride was the very sin that brought down Lucifer, Adam and numerous others. Lucifer was the highest of the arch-angels. He was the light-giver. Pride turned him into the deliverer of darkness, the chief of devils and demons, and the king of hell.
Pride in you gradually raises a veil of blindness over your understanding and squeezes the life of God out, leading you to destruction. (“God resists the proud.” James 4:6)
Pride distributes hell into your life, little bit by little bit.
Be aware that both pride and humility are active, powerful transforming agents. Practised humility has devastating effects on pride and its related sins.
Pride blinds and blindness leaves you with no light, and this sets you up for great deception!
Job 18:5-7 (Amp) “The light of the wicked indeed goes out and the flame of his fire does not shine. The light shall be darkness in his dwelling...The steps of his strength shall be shortened, and his own counsel in which he trusted, shall bring about his downfall.”
Job 18:18 “He is driven from light into darkness...”
Psalm 97:11 “Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.”
No rapture, they say!
One of the biggest deceptions is that there will be no rapture. “Everything will continue as it always has done!” (2 Peter 3:4)
Interestingly, many of those who believe these things also reject the reality of hell and eternal judgement. (Hebrews 6:2)
If people don’t teach on the rapture, or know about it, according to the scriptures, they will have no hope of His coming and no expectation. (1 John 3:3) You may think that’s fine. It is not! You will then have your hope anchored in the world!
Hebrews 6:19 (Amp) “We have this hope as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, which cannot break; a hope that reaches the Presence, behind the veil.”
“Reaching the Presence” here could well apply to the rapture!
Interestingly there are many consistencies amongst those who deny the rapture. Almost without exception they are absolutely wrong on all prophecy relating to Israel and that’s a huge amount! They normally have hearts in tune with the world, the media, the movies and the like.
They are products of a well mixed, wishy-washy, worldly, compromised gospel of hogwash.
Did you know that there is a rapture at the end of the tribulation – at the Second Coming? It’s a rapture to hell of all unbelievers. The Bible also refers to it as: “The feast of vultures!”
To be a victim of the vultures you just need to be yourself, and flow with the masses.
The rapture ready heart:
It is so important to have a ready heart. If we have to wait a little longer, we will be ready.
Psalm 24:3-4 “Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord, or stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart...”
Psalm 15:1 “Lord, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill? It is he who walks uprightly (holy) and works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart.”
Psalm 17:15 “As for me, I will see Your face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied when I awake in Your likeness.”
Hosea 10:12 “Sow for yourselves in righteousness; reap in mercy. Break up your fallow ground, (hard hearts) for it is time to seek the Lord, till He comes and rains righteousness on you.”
If saved, you are already right with God in spirit, but we all need to be right in soul as well. The key words from these verses above are: ●Clean hands, ●a pure heart, ●walking in holiness, ●working righteousness, ●speaking truth, ●living in His likeness ●breaking of hard hearts.
In search of quality!
Jeremiah 2:21 “I have planted you, a noble vine, a seed of the highest quality.”
1 Corinthians 3:13 “Each one’s work will become manifest: For the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work of what sort (Lit=quality) it is.”
As a believer, you are all called to change and transfer the quality in your heart to your soul.
If you seek the Lord and refuse to change, you won’t find Him. He is not there.
Quality people are those who have depth of experience with God. You transmit and impart what you are, which comes from whom or what you submit to and how much renewal you have achieved.
John 17:19 “For their sakes, I sanctify (set apart) Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth.”
The working “tools” God has given us are His cross and our own cross to take up daily. His tools include pure undiluted, Spirit-led truth – all of it.
Messing with the truth is one of the sure ways to blurred, hazy, foggy, neutralised, lukewarm Christian hogwash.
God gave us the cross and the cross applied, now gives us God, pure and holy.
Proverbs 27:7 “To a hungry soul even the bitter is sweet.”
“Be perfect” is the command of our Lord. It is not, become perfect, but be perfect. It is Messiah in you the hope of glory. He is in you and we are to reproduce the original!
Through the cross we as Christians died, were buried, were resurrected from the dead, are seated in heaven, justified and made holy. And technically, it all happened before the foundation of the world!
Here is good news to anyone who has been involved in curse-generating activities, or even has generational curses over them: “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree.” (Galatians 3:13) Our Lord has taken that curse upon Himself at the cross. You are now free indeed, through the cross.
To add to all of this, the kingdom of God has been deposited in our hearts as believers. This kingdom and its fruits must displace the kingdom of the world in us, through Adam.
The amazing Temple of quality:
The meaning of the word “temple” is: “Consecrated or sacred, a separated place” (Strong’s G2411)
This word meaning is incredible indeed. It relates to the physical temple in Jerusalem, but the Bible calls the believers heart – the temple of the Holy Spirit. (1 Corinthians 6:19) So, we are the temple of God. But please note the meanings!
Now let’s go a little further:
The word “Salvation” in Hebrew is “Yeshua.” In Greek it is “Stoteria.” It means “Set apart” or “deliverance.”
The words, Holy, Saint, Sanctify, Salvation, and Temple, all have the same root meaning which is: “Separate, Apart.”
Do you see the incredible consistency? Do you see why we have no truck with the world?
As true end-time temples of the Lord we are to be separate and apart from the world-system and its ways and influences. If you are truly born of the Spirit of God you will see and understand these things – you will overcome the world. (1 John 5:4)
It’s important to know that true biblical Christianity is radical and different, compared to the spiritual climate of the day. You won’t find it in many churches today. Our Lord Himself would not be welcome in many churches! They would throw Him and His radical ways out.
Everyone will have all their beliefs corrected by God soon. For many – too late!
You don’t have to have every last detail of your beliefs correct right now, although that is first prize, but you do have to bow your heart in humility and surrender now. Every knee will bow...every one!
►The new believer with a heart bowed to our Lord will be rapture ready. The Christian deeply rooted in the word of God, led by the Spirit, will be safe and rapture ready.
The cross roads:
The roads to eternity cross each other at the great wide gulf or chasm which is impassable. The cross stands right there at the edge. To cross the valley of destruction you have to embrace, wear, take-up, and eat the cross, getting it on the inside of you. (Jeremiah 15:16)
You can only be safe in the world in the cross!
We see this pathway in the Lamb, the Lion and the Dove. Our Lord went like a “lamb to the slaughter” and paid the extremely high price for our salvation. But He is also the Lion of the Jews and a Lion to all who won’t receive Him. The Dove of the Holy Spirit represents the coming of peace after judgement, as it was in the days of Noah.
Those who reject the Lamb, the Lion and the Dove, will by default receive the beast, the dragon and vultures.
Make sure you choose the right road!
The heart of the believer:
Hebrews 4:12 (Amp) “The word of God speaks, is alive and full of power – making it active, operative, energising and effective. It is sharper than any two edged sword, penetrating to the dividing of the breath of life (soul) and the immortal spirit and the body, exposing and sifting and analysing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.”
Today the very heart of Christianity is under attack. You must be aware of the devil’s devices and his methods of getting at your heart to bring you down. One of the powerful, evil spirits at work is the Jezebel spirit, which operates mainly through women but is also clearly evident in men and in church leadership.
●The Jezebel spirit is alive and well and at work in most churches today. This spirit is designed to bring down God’s authority structures and replace them with illegitimate ways.
●The word “Jezebel” (Lyzebel in Hebrew) means “Baal exalts.” The word, “Baal” means, “lord.” Obviously this is the false lord!
This spirit is all about control – exalted satanic control. It is identifiable (not exclusively) in some surprising ways.
2 Kings 9:30 “When Jehu had come to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it, and she put paint on her eyes and adorned her head...”
Hebrew word studies reveal that the “paint on her eyes” was a thick mascara of sorts, curving up an outwards from the corner of the eyes, giving a false sense of attention-demanding importance.
There is a spirit behind this form and style of make-up and dress.
You must renounce the spirit, seek deliverance from it, and cast it out, which most time involves throwing the individual out of the church, banishing them.
The Jezebel spirit is closely associated with the Nicolaitan spirit. Both want control and domination. This spirit is seen in the leadership. It operates in pride and lies, using false humility. It pits people against each other. It targets the gullible amongst the laity. It has an appearance of exalted authority.
●The Nicolaitans (Revelation 2:6, 2:14-15) were established in the church. The word means “to conquer the laity or people.” They taught that grace meant total liberty and licence. They were distinguished by clothing or appearances that separated them “above” the laity, giving them a false sense of pride-based authority.
The Nicolaitan spirit is seen in ministers who separate themselves above the laity in dress, titles, mannerisms or appearance or authority.
The Jezebel and Nicolaitan spirits are twins trying to usurp spiritual authority to bring down the work of God in an individual’s heart or the church corporately.
Note that our Lord says that “He hates the deeds and the doctrines of the Nicolaitans! (Revelation 2:6, 2:14-15)
Examine your heart
Jeremiah 17:9 “The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked, who can know it?”
Jeremiah 29:13-14 “You will seek Me and find Me when you seek for Me with all of your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord...”
Psalm 119:162 “...My heart stands in awe of Your word.”
There is a very sure way to examine and know your heart. Go to the Lord in sincere prayer and ask Him to show it to you. Tell Him that you are choosing the fear of the Lord in the process. You will soon see your own heart and what is required.
The heart of the world:
1 John 5:19 “We know that we are of God and the whole world lies under the power of the wicked one.”
It’s not parts of the world that are under the dominion of Satan – it’s the entire world system.
The world can never create true world peace. It is of the wrong spirit!
We pursue that which we value. “Where your treasure is there your heart will be." Too many have the world’s materialism and ways as their treasure! Their hearts are rotten.
Most are not living, they’re just existing in a superficial digital, automated world with no heart. They have no depth of life. Their lives are filled with illegitimate things. Their drugs, sex and rock and roll, can’t fulfil them, and never will.
These days so many are so shallow, but sometimes you find someone that really strikes you, and immediately your hearts bond.
The heart of Israel:
Deuteronomy 4:29-31 “You (Israel) will seek the Lord your God and you will find Him, if you seek Him with all your soul. When you are in distress (tribulation) 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 His covenant with you.”
Israel’s harlotry and disobedience is well documented in the scriptures. Because of it she has brought judgement on herself, BUT there is always a BUT!
Ezekiel 16:38 “I will judge you (Israel) as women who break wedlock or shed blood are judged: I will bring blood upon you in fury and jealousy!”
BUT, just a few verses on:
Ezekiel 16:60 “Nevertheless, I will remember My covenant with you in the days of your youth, and I will establish an everlasting covenant with you.”
Many say that Jews must convert to Christianity! Well if that is so, is it Catholicism, maybe Calvinism. Perhaps they must become Methodists or Anglicans or, or, or! Well, at least they must celebrate Christian Christmas and pagan Easter and eat a ham sandwich!
To the shame of Christianity, there are over 35,000 denominations (including the splits.) Most are full of Babylonian paganism of sorts.
No, Jews are to convert to their Jewish Messiah, who is our Messiah and return to pure sin-free, denomination (division)-free worship.
To be silent on Israel in these prophetic days is to side with God’s enemy.
►Israel’s anthem is beautiful.
I’ve adapted some of the phrases into the following “poem” for your benefit.
The ancient hope of Israel is not lost. As long as the precious wall remains and the humbled gates beckon, the eyes will well up with tears. The daughter of Zion, of Jerusalem speaks and calls for peace. The voice of God in the veins of Jewish blood, cries out for ultimate victory. The spilt blood of the defenders of God’s call to return; turns to dewdrops of coming fertility. The living God is your healer and peacemaker, O Israel.
Isaiah 8:14 Amp “He shall be for a sanctuary – a sacred indestructible asylum to those who reverently fear and trust in Him...”
Psalm 27:4 “One thing I have desired of the Lord, that I will seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord.”
1 Peter 1:8-9 “Now you do not see Him, yet believing you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith – the salvation of your souls.”
I took these two pictures at Etosha, Namibia and blended them together.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
