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!
“Expectation”: One simple little word with so much meaning!
Bible prophecy creates in us great expectation and excitement and hope. It brings things from the spiritual dimension into reality.
But as you can imagine, it does the opposite when the expectation is built on false prophecy, error and pure lies. It then all works in reverse. The failure kills the expectation, the excitement and hope. It actually goes much further in wrecking evangelism and other related Christian issues.
So when these Christian counterfeits come up with all these new dates for the rapture and others things found in prophecy, do they think of the damage they are causing to others? Of course not! – All they think of is themselves on a pedestal.
Rather than enhancing the gospel, they are attacking it!
Well, we have just had the giant failure of the July 17th 2019 rapture predictions made by many of those who published You Tube videos and teachings on how “for certain” this was! “It’s 100% for sure,” they said. “The Lord told me” they said. “I had a dream about it” they said. The rapture is July 17th2019 they assured all their gullible fans.
Their evidence was of course totally shockingly inadequate, superficial and absurd, to say the least!
The problem is their influence on the weak and gullible.
Let me clarify my position on the rapture again. Firstly I which it was yesterday!
►I believe that the most possible scenario is on the Feast of Trumpets. This would be one in which the other prophecies on the ground all dovetail. The Feast of Trumpets qualifies because it is the only one of the seven that could start over one of two days. Remember the Hebrew idiom and name for the Feast of Trumpets: “The Feast of which no one knows the day or hour!” This is because “No one knows the day or hour of the New Moon’s sighting. It does not mean: “No one knows the time!”
There are many other amazing aspects to The Feast of Trumpets and its associated meanings and applications, which I deal with as we get closer. But again, I say, there are many things that must be dovetailing together, otherwise – back to the drawing board!
With all of these date-setting failures in mind and the multitude of other attacks on Christians and the word of God, it has and will thrive until its grand conclusion!
Just think of it: Christianity began with 12 ordinary people, they were all martyred for their faith. The gospel spread around the world at lightning speed, and is still doing so today. And yes you are one of the participants of it all.
- Heaven is already rejoicing at your coming! (Luke 15:7)
- Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming...” Isaiah 14:9
You will receive a welcome into eternity! Which of the two verses above will be your welcome?
When the good news of the Kingdom arrives it marches in and kills the evil spirits of witchcraft and creates and makes new communities of glory growing forever outwards.
Do not grow discouraged by failed date-setters. Protect your faith and strengthen it. Keep your expectations and hope high. Be very discerning. Be holy now.
Revelation 22:11 “He who is unjust, let him be unjust still: He who is filthy, let him be filthy still. He who is righteous, let him be righteous still. He who is holy, let him be holy still.”
Edition 466: April 23rd 2019
Prophecy in the Feasts:
These are words of life!
The devil would have great success if he could trip up and sidetrack true Christians on the last stretch of their race to glory. The real victory is at the finish line!
We are now in the last stage of the final lap of our race home. Beware of the present dangers!
There are always consequences for removing or changing biblical truths, convocations and, verses.
We are not to mix the word of God with the word of man! The word, “Babylon” means mixture. The words, “holiness”, “saint”, “sanctify” all mean, separation.
What you do, including the things you celebrate and participate in, as part of your life’s customs and belief -system, shows how sold out you are on the world or the word.
In this edition, I want to have a look at the very powerful biblical, prophetic symbolism contained in the seven feasts of the Lord. I will also touch on some other most interesting aspects of prophecy, which relate to us all now.
What was, is and will come
The seven feasts of the Lord:
The feasts are: ●Passover, ●Unleavened bread, ●First fruits, ●Pentecost, ●Trumpets, ●Atonement, and ●Tabernacles. The Bible calls the feasts – holy.
The order of the feasts is most important, as they plot the course of history, besides, God’s word condemns changing, or removing any part of the word or the feasts!
The feasts support dispensationalism and a pre-tribulation rapture.
It was, and still is the Catholic church and all those of replacement theology, who omit or change the feasts, as well as the order. This is primarily to attack God’s word of prophecy upon Israel and keep the “ancient hatred” alive.
Contained in the feats in symbolic form, starting at Passover is: ●The release of the Jews from Egyptian slavery. ●The deaths of Israel’s Egyptian captors, and gods. ●The Exodus, the Red Sea crossing and the destruction of the Egyptians in pursuit. ●The cross of salvation as seen in the death angel passing over. ●The remembrance of the law giving on Sinai and the dispensation change of the law now given in the hearts of believers at the birth of the church. ●The next dispensation change at the rapture and the entrance to the tribulation period. ●The awe-filled national repentance of Israel as they recognise their Jewish Messiah. ●The entrance into the new Promised Land, Millennium, with the Jews, as the boss.
Do you see why these feasts are so very important? They plot the course of God’s prophetic word right through to the Millennium. Please note the central theme of the feasts, which is the place of Israel in God’s entire plan. It is Israel that is the golden, scarlet thread through it all.
Of course the church is right here in the feasts too, but the prophetic fulfilments for the Jews is of major importance in the grand plan, from Egypt to the wilderness, to the Promised Land, to the great spiritual awakening, to the cross of Messiah, to the tribulation, the second advent and the Millennium.
In fact, for the false, lying doctrine of replacement theology to really work, they must get rid of the Jews, and obviously all these symbolic, prophetic references in the feasts.
In many ways the feasts are the blessing of God, now turned into a curse for the Jews by large sections of the church, who remove and change these things.
I hope you see the dramatic, significance and importance of all these things together.
Prophetic wonders of Passover:
Passover is always has and still is celebrated with Matzos, being unleavened bread, scarred and spiked. Leaven is a type of sin in the Bible. So this alone speaks wonderfully, albeit symbolically of the purity of the believer.
The last item of the Passover celebration meal is called the afikomen. It is a piece of matzos inserted in a three-compartment linen bag, and hidden away in the home, until the kids are sent to look for it, at the end of the meal. When found it is broken and each member gets a piece.
This speaks of the three days and nights of our suffering servant and His being broken, striped and whipped for us. Of course, the Jews, in their blindness, by and large have not seen this yet. But this practise and many others at Passover speak of great prophetic things to come.
Bear in mind that Easter celebrators reject all of this and send their kids out to search for hidden Ishtar (the sex goddess) eggs, which has nothing in the world to do with the cross.
Some say, well at least the children have fun with Easter eggs and hot cross buns. Well, you could just as well give them a bottle of Bells to go with the bun!
Passover also sees the tradition of “zeroa” take place in which the shank-bone of a lamb is placed on the table. (Note that Catholics use a pig in their Easter and Christmas meal celebrations.) The lamb obviously points to the Lamb of God – Yeshual
The Passover meal always has an empty chair at the table. This is called “Elijah’s chair.” It speaks of the prophecy saying that Elijah will appear and announce the coming of the Lord, just like John the Baptist did. As the meal end someone goes to the front door, looks both ways, comes back in and says to all: “No he’s not here yet.”
This speaks wonderfully of hope and expectation for the coming of the Jewish Messiah! It is all far removed from anything to do with Easter!
The Passover meal is ended with the participants saying, “Next year in Jerusalem.” Again it speaks prophetically and of course is missing in Easter.
Prophecy in the feasts of the Catholic church:
The Catholic church celebrates only some of the feasts, but greatly changed, and on the wrong days, with the wrong names and associations.
I’m not going to go into it all here, but most of these big changes and omissions were done by the Catholic church with the express purpose of keeping the Jews out of this so-called church. Those interested, jut look it up!
One of the edicts of the early Catholic church, which most blinded Christians faithfully observe, even today, came from the Council of Nicea in 325 AD: “Christians were to have nothing to do with the odious Jews by commemorating Passover.”
But here is what the Bible says:
1 Corinthians 5:7-8 “Let us purge out the old leaven, for indeed Messiah our Passover was sanctified for us. Therefore let us keep the feast...”
The Catholic wafer, used by most churches today, is not Matzos, with the spikes and stripes representing the cross on it. That speaks of a cross-less symbolism. It speaks of “another Jesus!”
The ten plagues of Egypt are represented in Passover, but we see then again appear in the tribulation period as part of the wrath of God. The Days of Awe are also called the ten days of repentance. I wonder why these are cast down in significance by the Catholic church?
It is primarily the Catholic church that will be the centre of the wrath of God in the tribulation!
Obviously, the removal of the Days of Awe is saying that there will not be a large scale repentance of the Jews.
The Days of Awe leads to the feast of Tabernacles, which represents the Millennium dwelling just after the Second Advent, which will be Jewish led.
►Let’s not forget that the Catholics created the occult feats: ●Halloween. ●Valentine’s Day, ●Easter, ● Christmas. (look it up!)
Pentecost occurs 50 days after Passover, by command of God. (Leviticus 23:16)
Catholic Pentecost is 50 days after Easter. This makes everything out of sync with the Bible command not to change the Bible, including the feasts in any way. Of course this is totally ignored and cast out by all Catholics and the majority of Christians.
The removal of the book of Revelation:
In the fourth century the book of Revelation was removed from Catholic liturgy because it, too closely identified the Catholic church under judgement, being cast into the tribulation. (Revelation 2:22) The Revelation also speaks of a Jewish led Millennium. That is an anathema to the Catholics! Today the Revelation is in their Bible, but greatly downplayed, discouraged and avoided.
The great veil:
Repentance produces awesome light and sight.
2 Corinthians 3:14-16 “Their (Jews) minds were hardened. For until this day, the same veil remains un-lifted in the reading of the Old Covenant, because the veil is taken away in Messiah...When one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.”
Isaiah 35:5 “The eyes of the blind (Zion) shall be opened and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.”
Isaiah 42:16 “I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, and crooked places straight, and not forsake them.”
The supernatural tearing of the temple veil was a great miracle. Most people think of some flimsy little chiffon bridal veil. The temple veil was 60 feet long, 30 feet wide and 4 inches thick. It took 300 priests to move it!
At the instant of the cross of Calvary this enormous veil was supernaturally torn from top to bottom, without hands. (Matthew 27:50-51) The veil was torn from top to bottom, indicating that no man, only God did this, now giving all of God’s people entrance into His presence. (Hebrews 10:19)
The greater miracle is the mystery of Israel’s blindness. The Jews, including the priests saw the veil was torn, yet they still refused to repent and remained blind to all of this.
But the day of light and sight is soon coming!
The supernatural call of God:
The Jews, Jerusalem and Israel, have the call and covenant promise of God upon them, for His incredible soon-coming prophetic purposes. God has put His name on them all. Of course the world hates this, because they hate God.
The world has tried to kill the Jews right from their very foundation, because the greatest drama of all time is wrapped up in them.
So, how do you get rid of the Jews? Well, you kill them. If that doesn’t work, like it didn’t with Hitler, and the mass-murdering popes of the Inquisitions, then you assimilate them into the nations.
And if that doesn’t work, like it never has, because the Bible says it is impossible, then, like the mass media, you continue talking a mixture of hogwash and garbage, and act like an ostrich, with your stupid head in the sand.
Likewise, how do you get rid of true Bible believing Christians, who love and stand with our Lord and Israel? Well, you kill them of course – just martyr them. If that doesn’t work, just assimilate them into the world and make them no different.
They must hide their light and shut their mouths. If that doesn’t work, they can assimilate into the dead, counterfeit, cross-less, spineless, flamboyant church of pomp and pride.
Perhaps, someone needs to tell CNN, the BBC, SKY, NBC and others that you can’t kill God or His word or work. All you can do is get yourselves destroyed for trying.
The Red Sea is about to close in on the world’s mass-media. I wonder how many can swim!
The spirit of antichrist is the spirit that comes against the Messiah, replaces Him, and also comes against the Jews Jerusalem and the land of Israel, because these have the name of God and work of God in their midst. This spirit also comes against all that is of God, including His authority structures in the nations of the world.
Daniel 8:23-25 “In the latter times of their kingdoms (world empires), when the transgressors have reached their fullness, a king shall arise, having fierce features, who understands sinister schemes (the antichrist) His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power. He shall destroy fearfully, and shall prosper and thrive; he shall destroy the mighty and also the holy people...He shall even rise against the Prince of princes, but will be broken without human hand.”
The genocide, mass extermination, and massacre of the Jews that became known as Hitler’s “final solution” – the Holocausts of history, are now fermenting in the world, and organisations like the US Democratic Party, the British Labour Party. It is fermenting in New Zealand and others. The ancient seeds are being sown again.
The forerunner to the Holocaust - Zeus:
The name Zeus is also associated with the name Satan.
The Holocaust did have a number of precedents in history.
The word, “Holocaustum,” means “sacrifice by fire.”
This evil Temple of Zeus was the place where Christians, like Antipas were martyred, by being burnt alive inside metal bull-shaped ovens, with fires beneath.
The Temple of Zeus, the crowning glory of ancient Pergamum, was later deconstructed and moved to Berlin, Germany, where it was commissioned by Hitler in 1930, just before the Holocaust.
Hitler staged a number of ‘light spectaculars” from the platform of the Temple of Zeus.
Hitler called one of them the “Cathedral of light,” with 150 search-lights all pointing skywards from the Zeus pulpit, where, just below, the “holy oath” of the Nazis was taken by the masses, to exalt Nazism and denigrate the Jews. The oath said: “Blazing flames hold us together into eternity.”
The tragedy is that it’s all coming back! The same spirits are still alive and being used.
Revelation 17:3 speaks of the mother of harlots being drunk on the blood of the saints and the blood of the martyrs.” Most commentators (including myself) believe that the “mother of harlots”, here is a reference to the Catholic church, and others like it, in the tribulation period.
Relating to these churches in the tribulation period, the Bible speaks of them as knowing the depths of Satan. (Revelation 2:24)
The angel of death passed over the Jews in Egypt, and again stood before Israel, in the form of ●Hitler’s final solution, ●Islam’s final solution – death to the Jews, and the ●Catholic church’s solution of replacing the Jews with themselves.
The trumpets are sounding, the shofar of warning is blowing and Israel’s captors, haters and enemies will soon fall into the same fate as all of them in antiquity. Why does the world not learn?
Teachers of light and of darkness:
Bible prophecy warns of perhaps the greatest end-time sign – deception!
Candidates for deception include: ●Those ignorant of the Bible, ●those who elevate their teachers, putting them on a pedestal. ●Those who elevate their traditions and customs above God’s word. ●Those who refuse to deny self, and take up their cross daily. ●Those who don’t have time to study and pursue our Lord and His word. ●Those who mix the occult into the truth and those who have given themselves thoroughly to false teachers.
False teachers have a false authority and illegitimate power, but there is an authority there, which you dare not submit to for one second.
All false teachers spread spiritual darkness, but do not see everyone that disagrees with you as a false teacher! False teachers are of a false spirit, which you should be able to identify.
Spiritual darkness is a driving force. It is alive.
There are a number of original words used for darkness. Here are some meanings:
Obscurity, destruction, heaviness, ignorance, wickedness, gloominess, and calamity.
Isaiah 8:21-22 “Then they shall be enraged and curse their king and their God and look upward. Then they will look to the earth and see trouble and darkness, gloom and anguish, and they shall be driven into darkness.”
Jeremiah 23:12 (False prophets) “Like slippery ways in the darkness, they shall be driven forward and fall; for I will bring disaster on them.” (Zephaniah 1:15)
God’s word turns darkness into light and sheds light in the shadows of evil and death.
The truth will set you free! It will set you free from yourself and your desire to be right and make God wrong. It will make you free from sin. It will set you free from the domains of invisible demons. It will make you free from oppressive ignorance, and make you wise!
Acts 26:18 “...Turn them from darkness to light and from the power of Satan, to God...”
Under whose authority does the mainstream church remove 27% of the Bible, which is prophecy, and doom their pew - warmers to pure ignorance? If you don’t know the full truth, how can you spot a lie? Or how can you prevent deception?
Acts 17:30-31 “Truly these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness.”
The intense hatred for Christians will manifest as they stand for Israel, when her time of trouble approaches. Much of Israel’s coming trouble in the tribulation period will be because of her own rebellion to God and His judgement, but much will be caused by the world, its god – Satan, and the counterfeit church.
It is time for the church to stand with Israel – now. It is time for the church to get rid of its paganism and be clean.
I’m not talking about getting into legalism. That is the ditch on the other side. I’m talking about seeing, knowing and standing with and for our Lord’s great works soon to intensify.
Exodus 6:6-7 “Say to the children of Israel: ‘ I am the Lord; I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, I will rescue you from their bondage, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and great judgements...Then you shall know that I am the Lord.’”
This is a composite of a few of my pictures, to create a dreamy effect.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
