|This ministry has a distinct kingdom, Messianic vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for the Jewish people and the church. My position is pre-trib! Personally: I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share these great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God.|

If you see a speed limit sign and there are cops around, you obey it and you think you are good. If there is no sign and no cops around and you obey the general speed limit, because something in your heart says it’s the right thing to do – that’s good.
If the gospel is not changing you radically, you are receiving a false gospel or it is powerless due to legalism, or your own heart is wrong.
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 waiting game!
Waiting can be time wasted! Waiting in expectant anticipation, preparing your heart in diligence, is another story!
In many ways, waiting is a reprieve, giving us extra time to build up our eternal reward, allowing us to prepare and be ready, before the big atomic bang to meet the Lord in the sky.
Waiting, changing, growing and preparing will be rewarded, and what a reward it will be, with no regret in sight. I can’t wait!
The entire end-time drama is unwinding. Things are converging, they are imminent and impending. Time is running out fast.
There is a mature waiting! It is cautious, but produces an inner, satisfying calm, and an excitement of heart.
Waiting can create anxiety and stress. Waiting can create impatience. But waiting at the instruction of the Lord, strengthens us. (Isaiah 40:31)
Eyes and ears are opening! The eyes of the Jews are opening to their heaven-born Jewish Messiah. Their eyes are fluttering and blinking as many begin to see a glimpse of glory through the opening veil. Dry bones are rattling.
The veil of blindness on the multitudes of the unsaved remains closed, obscuring their hell-destined messiah. Now their veil of darkness is growing thicker and darker.
These are the days when we must see with spiritual eyes and hear God’s plan for us. Yet most are deaf and blind to the things of God and alive to the plans of the devil.
These are the days of grafting in and cutting off! (Romans 11:17, 22) The true Jewish olive branch is being grafted in and the many of the wild olive branches (the church) are cut off.
Waiting for Israel:
Isaiah 35:1 “The wilderness and the desert shall be glad in them (Israel) and the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose; it shall blossom abundantly.”
Awake, awake O Zion. Arise and shine. Awake, O sleeper from the dead! Your dead will live! Wake yourself and stand up, O Jerusalem. They will arise and shout for joy. Awake my harp and lyre – I will awaken the dawn.
I compiled the above phrase from Ephesians 5:14, Isaiah 26:19, Isaiah 51:17, Isaiah 52:1 Isaiah 60:1 and Psalm 108:2
Romans 13:11 “It is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.”
If Israel would hurry up and awake – we can get this whole show on the road!
The shock of all shocks:
The world is being overrun with the satanic, sin, evil, socialism and numerous enemies of God. Satan and his hordes are surrounding the world with their chariots of evil fire.
2 Kings 6:16-17 (When surrounded by enemies) “Elisha said, ‘Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those with them.’ And Elisha prayed that the Lord would open his eyes that he may see.’ Then the Lord opened his eyes and he saw a mountain full horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.”
It doesn’t matter how long we have to wait. At the end of the day, “there are more spiritual forces with us than with them!” The story is simple: We win! The unbelieving world can’t see that they have lost already!
“Now is the judgement of the world.” (John 12:31)
Imagine the absolute shock the unbeliever will get when his eyes are really opened as he enters hell, – too late!
Imagine the shock of knowing that there was a book available to them all their lives saying that they are doomed which showed the way to be free, and they kept it closed, scorned it and rejected it.
Imagine the unbeliever’s shock of finding out one day that the skies are full of invisible godly forces, surrounding those who are His!
It’s not wise to be on the wrong side, especially in these days!
Psalm 46:5-6 “God is in the midst of her (Jerusalem), she shall not be moved. God shall help her, just at the break of dawn. The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted.”
Jeremiah 10:10 “The Lord is the true God; He is the living God and the everlasting King. At His wrath the earth will tremble and the nations will not be able to abide His indignation.”
The world can try as it may to create a new world order of peace. It can use the free market system, democracy, theocracy, socialism, communism, capitalism, tyranny or anything it likes, but it can’t get rid of sin in the heart of man! It is forever doomed to be eternally united with sin.
We are not called to reform the world. We are called to die to it, and come out of it. Our world is not of this world. Our world is perfect and sin free. It is called “The Kingdom of God.”
That does not mean that we remain passive in the face of godlessness in the world.
The true Christian has “peace that surpasses understanding”! (Philippians 4:7) “There is no peace for the wicked.” (Isaiah 48:22) “Wickedness is in the heart of man.” (Genesis 6:5, Jeremiah 17:9)
►The world doesn’t want you to see its god. If you can’t see the true God because He has been hidden and removed from society, you can’t see the world’s god and you can’t see the fiery gulf into which you are headed.
The wait is almost over:
When all the arrows are collectively pointing in one direction and the time clock is ticking away and the Spirit of God in the hearts of those with eyes and ears all unanimously see and hear the same thing that means the train is almost here!
Edition 452: January 15th 2019
Treasures of prophecy for today:
Psalm 119:162 “I rejoice at Your word as one who finds great treasure.”
In this edition I will share with you some startling and little-known prophecies and scriptures that relate accurately to today’s world situation on many fronts, including moral, political, and military, Israel, the church and much more.
There are many verses that are directly prophetic, but also many others that can have a prophetic application, or a double reference. So we need to hear the leading of the Spirit.
We need to be open to the Spirit of God shedding fresh light on verses that we think we know.
This edition may seem disjointed, but that is because I have much revelation, contained in so many verses for you, and I want to get as much as possible to you in this and the next edition.
Idiots and idols:
Idols are illigitimate or forbidden things people worship, but opinions can just as easily become idols of enslavement too.
This world is absolutely filled with all types of idolatry and some of it is in the church.
Consider these profound verses below, and note the effects:
Jeremiah 10:8 “They (who worship idols) are altogether dull hearted and foolish.”
Proverbs 14:18 “Fools mock at sin, but among the righteous there is favour.”
Isaiah 32:6 “The foolish person will speak foolishness, and his heart will work iniquity, to practice ungodliness, to utter error against the Lord...”
Proverbs 15:14 “The heart of him who has understanding seeks knowledge, but the mouth of fools feeds on foolishness.”
Ephesians 4:18 “Their understanding was darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardening of their heart.”
As you read these verses above, please note idolatry brings foolishness into your heart. Satan makes you stupid. It makes you a true idiot. You then mock at sin, just like the media does. You then become full of sin, feeding on the world’s foolishness and it gets progressively worse.
Their hearts are then hardened and they are in a terrible state.
These few verses, above are a treasure-chest of truth relating to the whole unsaved world today. They apply succinctly to individuals and entire nations. Tragically, they apply to many modern churches today. Or should I say; counterfeit churches.
►If the church was doing its job properly; there would be far fewer professing Christians. These are the ones who profess belief but have no enduring fruit or biblical evidence of new-birth. They are frauds and the churches today are full of them!
The cross identifies you. But where there is no cross, self-opinion, idolatry, and foolishness rule and take over.
An incredible verse:
James 1:12 “Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been proved, he will receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to those that love Him.”
As we move forward in the Lord, we all encounter temptation. With some, it is an absolute battle, because they have yielded to sin so frequently. Those who are truly saved, know all about battling to be released from the grip of sin.
Your battle against sin can be quite easily overcome by the correct application of the cross.
But revealed, like hidden treasure, the verse above shows something quite incredible. When you endure temptation and overcome it, you will receive a reward! This reward is called “The crown of life.” Like all rewards from our Lord, it is eternal. It identifies you in God’s eternal kingdom in a most powerful way, forever and ever.
Do you think it is worth it, to endure and overcome temptation? – You bet!!
Just think about that. Your battle is for a brief moment in time, but your reward is forever and ever. That makes our Lord’s grace and mercy, totally unreasonable - positively!
Psalm 19:9-11 “The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; His judgements are true and righteous altogether...By them Your servant is warned, and in keeping them there is great reward.”
Note again, “great reward” for heading warning!
Some terrible “treasure” of the tribulation period:
The unbeliever will curse himself to eternal hell by receiving a mark on his forehead or hand. (Revelation 13:16, 14:11) But have a look at this bit of majesty:
Revelation 22:4-5 “They (believers) shall see His face, and His name shall be upon their foreheads, and there shall be no night there: They need no lamp, nor light of the sun, for the Lord gives them light, and they shall reign forever and ever.”
What a thing this is! Those who take the mark of the beast are sent to an eternal hell. Those who take the mark of the cross of Calvary, which will show in a godly mark on their foreheads, shall reign with our Lord forever and ever!
The unsaved go into unquenchable fire.
Isaiah 34:10 (Day of Lord’s vengeance) “The burning will not be quenched (Lit=unquenchable) night or day; its smoke shall ascend forever...”
“Quenched” (Strong’s G762) is “Asbestos” meaning, “not extinguishable”. You can hit asbestos with fire and it never gets quenched or consumed. In other words, this fire of God’s judgement never comes to an end.
The world can never have true peace. Peace is a person, a crucified and risen person, whom the world has rejected. The world’s peace is manufactured, temporary, external, superficial and in fact a lie. The world’s peace is soon to be hit with unquenchable fire!
Today we are seeing the rapid devolution of man on all fronts, including social, art, music, morals, religion and more. The funny thing is that true “evolution” is only for the serious Christian! God lifts him up, changing him, while those in Satan’s kingdom are always brought down to the lowest common denominator.
We are seeing the devolution of the world without God right now. It’s all unwinding fast. It is degenerating and getting ready to go to hell in a hand-basket.
Yes, there are some things in the world getting better, but not in the big issues like morality.
Why is “perilous times” a key prophecy of these times? (2 Timothy 3:1-2) As the verse reveals, it is simply because of the degeneration of character.
The internet has been so very successful, or has it? It has made many things easier, especially the spread of gospel. But it has speeded up the stupefying of the masses fast. It has revolutionised the moral degeneration of man.
The various media internet companies have set their algorithms to generate and give you not what you want, but what they want. It’s all about manipulation which will lead to global satanic control.
Due to the world’s idolatry, foolishness and blindness, they have charged headlong into many curse generating activities and beliefs. They don’t see it until it’s too late and they trapped in an ever worsening situation like a drug addict bearing the brunt!
●Curses can come from generational ancestry. ●Curses come from certain types of sinful behaviour like homosexuality. ● Curses can come from leaders, particularly some types of Christian leaders who are representing Satan, unknowingly, like all those in replacement theology. ● Curses are sometimes self-inflicted by one’s own words. ●Curses continue until revoked.
●Curses always operate through the following activities: Clairvoyants, mediums, fortune tellers, witchdoctors, and certain false prophets. (Deuteronomy 18:10-12)
Today these things are at plague-status!
The Bible says that none of these are to found in you!
Proverbs 26:2 “Like a flitting sparrow, like a flying swallow, so a curse without a cause will not alight.”
Here is a method and prayer of release:
Pray the scriptures and use divine decrees in your God-given authority, backed by your spiritual gifts of warfare.
Job 22:28 “You will declare a thing (make a decree), and it will be established for you; so light will shine on your ways.”
For example, you can take this verse below, personalise it, make a decree, confess and proclaim it.
Psalm 125:3 “The sceptre of wickedness shall not rest on the land (or me) allotted to the righteous, lest the righteous reach out his hand to iniquity.”
If you under a curse you can be released from it by:
●Forsake and repenting. Forsaking involves burning all contact items, books etc and the people with who you were involved in these things. ●Renounce totally and verbally all such activity and related issues. ●Pray the blood of the cross of Calvary over the situation. ● Forgive those involved, but do not resume contacts. ●Have communion over the issue. ●Be thankful for all your mercies.
True, deep repentance is required.
Repent: Strong’s G3340 Metanoeo. Meanings: Change one’s mind; heartily amend with abhorrence and sorrow for sin.
A great treasure trove of victory:
Positive confession, visualisation, self-esteem programs and the like are all self and world-focused.
The prosperity preachers shout a lot about the “wealth of the world being laid up for them.” (Proverbs 13:22) Actually, the wealth of the world is laid for the antichrist! All will finally be delivered to our Lord’s kingdom in the Millennium. (Joel 3:5)
We are to lay up for ourselves treasure in heaven! (Matthew 6:19-20)
There is nothing essentially wrong with the gist of the word / faith, prosperity message, except that it is overbalanced, and avoids a large section of truth, like that which relates to dying to self, and the world, and pays little attention to cross-bearing.
It’s easy to take a collection of Bible verses and go overboard on them, which turns truth into error.
I find it interesting that most of these churches and ministries, because their orientation is “success in the world,” have little or nothing to say about Israel, because that is going to upset the world’s applecart – big time!
Materialistic, money focused Christianity, with no soul-price to pay won’t endure.
It is the teaching and application of the cross that breaks the self life and your connection to the world system.
The cross deals with: ●The flesh or sin nature. (Galatians 5:24) ●The world-system. (Galatians 6:14) ●The evil age (Galatians 1:4) ●The law (Galatians 2:19-20)
So, it is self and its connection to the world that must be broken. Self becomes obstinate and doesn’t like to be told it has to be broken and die!
You need something hard to break a hard-boiled egg, not a toothpick, or cotton wool.
The self-life has been infiltrated by the evil one, just like the world has. Paul says: “In me (self) dwells no good thing.”) In his spirit dwells a very good person!
In Hebrew, one of the words for “evil” is “kelipa” meaning an outer shell. For evil to exist, it must be ‘clothed’ and ‘protected’ by its shell, which in this case is the self-life. The deceptive “beauty” of this evil is in its outer appearance.
That hard shell restricts the light from getting in, and hides the true nature of what is underneath it.
“My strength is perfected in weakness”, says the Bible. (This is self-effort being made weak.)
“We have no confidence in the flesh” (self esteem) (Philippians 2:3)
We must understand the difference between positional truth and temporal truth. Positional truth relates to our position in Him. It includes all the “in Him” verses. It is a done deal – done completely at the new birth.
Temporal truth relates to this temporary life, the life of the flesh and self (soul). It is not a done deal at salvation and is where the main work in our lives must be done.
Consider these amazing, so called contradictions which I’ve taken from verses relating to positional and temporal truth:
●We have abundant life / Loose your life. ●We’re seated in heavenly places. / Take up your cross daily. ●We are alive with Messiah / I die daily. ●We are more than conquerors. / O wretched man that I am. ●Greater is He that is in me. / In me dwells no good thing. ●We are joint heirs of all things in Him/ I count all things as loss. ●I am strong in the Lord / I must decrease. ● I can do all things through Him / You can of your own self do nothing. ● I am complete in Him / Death works in me.
Do you see it now? I hope you do.
These are total contradictions, but none of them are contradictions, because the first set relates to our done-deal, position in Messiah, and the second applies to the self or soul realm and the work we must do. There are very many more.
You see the word /faith prosperity guys centre on positional truth, trying to confess it into being, while it’s done already. They almost totally ignore the temporal verses, which is why their flock are so materialistic and worldly and seldom endure.
What is needed is the correct teaching and application of both sets of truth, rightly divided and applied. That produces the full, balanced truth.
Please don’t take this lightly. It is revolutionary and will set many people free. There is great rest and peace in correct application.
By the way, none of this means you need to walk around poor. It’s just a matter of correcting terrible excesses and overbalanced preaching, and seeing how it all fits together.
If God wants you to be wealthy, for His purposes, well and good – rejoice in it.
Israel: Prophetic treasures:
1 Chronicles 17:21-22 “Who is like Your people Israel, the one nation on the earth that God went to redeem for Himself as a people- to make for Yourself a name by great and awesome deeds, driving out nations before Your people whom you redeemed from Egypt. For You have made Your people Israel Your very own people forever, and You Lord, have become their God.”
Exodus 19:5 “Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then You shall be a special treasure to Me above all people.”
Deuteronomy 26:18 “The Lord has proclaimed you to be His special people, just as He promised you, that you should keep all His commandments,”
In these verses above, we see that Israel is totally unique among the nations. The world will understand this the hard way! Because God Himself is in His word and call, Israel cannot be defeated, except for temporary set-backs, which are prophesied anyway.
This portion of scripture below is prophetic. It is shocking indeed and wonderful:
Micah 4:6-8 “In that day, says the Lord, ‘I will assemble the lame (of Israel), I will gather the outcast and those whom I have afflicted (allowed to be); I will make the lame a remnant , and the outcast a strong nation; so the Lord will reign over them in Mount Zion, from now on, even forever. And you, O tower of the flock, the stronghold of the daughter of Zion, to you it shall come, even the former dominion shall come, the kingdom of the daughter of Jerusalem.”
We did see a partial prophetic fulfilment of this in the War of Independence in 1948, when Israel was born as a modern nation. One day after independence she was attacked by numerous Arab nations and with a broken, quickly put together, volunteer, rag-tag army (and God’s help) Israel won!
This is coming again. Israel will be hit hard in the early part of the tribulation period, but by the end, with a “lame, remnant, outcast”, army – a “strong nation”, she will defeat her enemies.
You are a total idiot to stand against God’s plans for Israel. I’m constantly amazed at how many do; even some churches! The duty of the church in these days is found in this verse below:
Isaiah 57:14 “...Prepare the way, take the stumbling block out of the way of My people.”
The entire UN, the EU, many nations, many churches practising Babylonian customs and replacement theology, the mass-media and more, are present day stumbling blocks to Israel.
By the way, worldly people and worldly Christians don’t like us coming against the Babylonian, pagan customs of Christmas and Easter, because it reveals that they are man and world- pleasers and they reject the warnings of the word of God on these things.
When considering these things it’s good to remember that God destroyed Babylon in its entirety and specifically said it was never to rise again. (Jeremiah 51:64) So when the church practises forbidden Babylonian customs it is resurrecting what God has destroyed.
The Bible says in a number of places, “Don’t even use the names of the pagan gods”. (Exodus 23:13, Zephaniah 1:4, Jeremiah 10:2, Deuteronomy 12:30-31, 2 Kings 17:33-34)
Isaiah 44:25-26 “I am the Lord who frustrates the signs of the babblers, (rubbish talkers) and drives diviners mad; who turns wise men (worldly wise) backwards, and makes their knowledge foolishness; who confirms the word of His servant, and performs the counsel of His messengers; who says to Jerusalem, ‘You shall be inhabited.’”
Here is pure treasure:
Jeremiah 33:8-9 “I will cleanse them (Israel) from all their iniquity by which they have sinned against Me, and I will pardon all their iniquities. Then they shall be to Me a name of joy, a praise and an honour, before all nations of the earth, who shall hear of all the good that I do to them. They shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and all the prosperity that I provide for them.”
Can you imagine the media in fear and trembling because of the Lord’s plans for Israel working out just He said they would? I can’t wait to see that!
Isaiah 43:12 “I have declared and saved, I have proclaimed, and there was no foreign god among you (Israel); therefore you are My witnesses, says the Lord.”
Storms are soon to hit this earth! Storms show your foundation.
Let your foundation be strong and secure, build on it and strengthen it.
