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 469: May 14th 2019
Israel – The Sign:
These are words of life!
Next in the great drama: The rapture of the church, the Lion of Judah is recognised by the Jews, as the seven-year tribulation period begins with wars and great turmoil.
The great shock will be when the Jews see that their Messiah is not a Catholic, but a Jew! I think the Catholic church will get as great a shock when they finally see that their Christmas Jesus is the antichrist and the real Messiah is a Jew!
The tribulation period is about to begin!
Jeremiah 30:3-7 “I will bring back from captivity My people Israel and Judah, says the Lord, and I will cause them to dwell in their land...Alas for that day is great, so none is like it; and it shall be the time of Jacob’s trouble. (Tribulation period)
Note in the verse above the link between the return of the Jews to their land and the tribulation period. We could accurately call the present return to the Promised Land, the spiritual awakening or return as well, which, in fact is just beginning now.
You have to correctly identify the major types and shadows of the Bible. If you don’t, you will miss-apply many scripture and in many cases land in error.
End-time Babylon can only be the world-system as a whole. That would include the political, commercial, military and religious elements. A clear reading of all the verses in the Bible relating to end-time Babylon absolutely proves this.
There are a few die-hards out there who continue to identify end-time Babylon as literal rebuilt Babylon in Iraq. Nothing could further from the truth. Don’t just take what others say.
The Bible also speaks of Jerusalem, in type as being “Babylon, Egypt and Sodom”.
Revelation 11:8 “Their dead bodies (2 witnesses) will lie in the street of the great city which is spiritually called, Sodom and Egypt where also our Lord was crucified.”
Egypt (with Babylon) is another clear type of the world system. Israel had become paganised with all sorts of worldly influences. Sodom is a clear reference to the sin of homosexuality for which Israel, particularly Tel Aviv, is renowned today.
The verse above refers in type to the work of the cross covering the sin of the world, and that Israel has become worldly, although her physical return to the land is still on the go.
Before we continue, please understand that the number seventy is the number of judgement. It is also connected with Jerusalem.
The number seventy one in Hebrew means: “Fullness, Holy Spirit, Dove!”
The declaration and the decree:
●Israel declared independence as a state on May 14th 1948. The declaration was confirmed by the UN (League of Nations back then). The very next day, six Arab armies attacked Israel, in what became known as the War of Independence. But it was only on January 25th 1949 that Israel became an official state with David Ben-Gurion being elected Prime Minister.
Yes, independence took place in May 1948, seventy one years ago, but the workings of it only came about in 1949, seventy years ago. So, is it seventy or seventy one years? I think it doesn’t really make that much difference, since both are significant.
Does this mean that the full seventy years are not quite up yet? My point is that in God’s scheme of things everything will work out perfectly. Our Lord always does things decently and in order and sometimes we only see this after the fact. (1 Corinthians 14:40)
Anyway, Israel has been a nation of the world for seventy years give or take an inch.
Here now is an item of great interest: Israel went into Babylonian captivity for seventy years due to her rebellion and sin. Babylon is always a type of the world.
So, we can accurately say that Israel has been in modern day captivity to the world and its ways for seventy years, hence the comparison.
●The decree of Cyrus: (Ezra 1:1-11, 5:17, 2 Chronicles 36:23 Isaiah 44:28, 45:1)
The Babylonian captivity ended with the decree of Cyrus. He ordered that the temple be rebuilt in Jerusalem on the Temple Mount and that the children of Israel return to their Promised Land.
The purpose of ending the captivity was related to the rebuilt temple. In other words, it was so that Israel could return to holiness. Don’t miss that point! At the same time, the walls of Jerusalem were ordered to be rebuilt.
During the exile many Jews had fallen into pagan worship. The return to the land with a new temple ended this.
We see the same principle in the great Exodus from Egypt: Exodus 7:16 “And you (Moses) shall say to him (Pharaoh) Let My people go, so that they may serve Me in the wilderness...”
So, now as we look at these powerful types and shadows, do you see what I see?
Immediately after the captivity the command to rebuild the temple comes along, for the reason of Israel’s return to holiness, just like the Exodus.
Now, with that in mind, have a look at this verse below and note the time frame.
Jeremiah 29:10 “Thus says the Lord: ‘After seventy years are completed at Babylon, I will visit you and perform My good word toward you, and cause you to return to this place.”
At the same time and perhaps part of the modern “decree of Cyrus” will come the fateful peace covenant with the antichrist, kicking off the seven year tribulation period as the restrainer – the true church, is removed from the earth, before the tribulation.
But something will cause Israel to immediately become jealous and angry (Romans 10:19). That can only be the rapture, with them being left behind. Whatever this great sign is it will also cause Israel to immediately repent and become holy.
Isaiah 66:19 “I will set a sign among them (Jews)...they shall declare My glory among the Gentiles.”
The word “sign” above, (Strong’s H226) means a supernatural, miraculous sign, event or warning. It is the same word used in the verse below:
Isaiah 7:14 “The Lord Himself will give you (O house of David) a sign: Behold the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son and shall call His name Immanuel.”
This is a parallel to the sign of Revelation 12:1-5 which is Israel giving birth to the Jewish Messiah (not the church.) A further great parallel is found in Isaiah 66:8 speaking of a nation (Zion) being born in a day. Again this is NOT the church as taught by the deceived. Verses 10, and 13 confirm this identifying the subject as Jerusalem, Israel and the not the church.
We don’t know exactly what this future sign will be that God will place in Israel, but we do know it has to be of supernatural origin.
I believe this sign to the Jews, will be the rapture of the church, and then sudden insight of who their Messiah is. The veil of spiritual blindness on the Jews is a supernatural mystery. (Romans 11:25) It will be removed suddenly.
At this time, the dreadful Revelation riders of the storm will ride into a dark, dark world. “Hello darkness my old friend,” will be the unsaid chant of the tribulation masses.
“I can see clearly now the veil is gone,” will be the song of the Jews! What incredible joy this time will be, (as well as suffering)! Tribulation arises and long awaited repentance falls on Israel – glory!
The sign is the rapture, but the more detailed sign is the Jews seeing a virgin-born Jewish Messiah, whom they “pierced.” (Zechariah 12:10) They will suddenly understand what that means. If there is no virgin birth, there is no Messiah and no salvation. They cannot look upon their Messiah and not see the virgin-born, sinless, crucified, risen and coming again Yeshua Ha Mashiach !
By the way, if you are born-again you are virgin-born, with no sin in your spirit. – Think about it!
The main point here is that if the Babylonian captivity is represented in Israel’s 70 years as a nation, we are right at the very end, and in fact on borrowed time. If this analogy is true, it also suggests that the time will end with a fresh “decree of Cyrus” to build the temple. It suggests that we are right on the very verge.
Add to this all the other requirements of prophecy like the war in Syria reaching its dramatic climax, the war of Gog and Magog (Russia, Iran and others) the war of Psalm 83 and much more.
The doom of the nations:
Be absolutely sure of one thing: God will deal severely in judgement with all the nations that have negatively influenced and affected Israel. Nations that have led them deeper into sin, will pay the price. Churches that have done the same, are in the same boat!
I strongly suggest that you read well and study out the following portions of scripture. They have a powerful prophetic message for today. You can’t join all the Spirit-less idiots of the world and say – you didn’t know about these things.
Isaiah 49:22-26 “Behold, I will lift My hand in an oath to the nations and set up My standard (Lit=banner /sign) for the peoples; they shall bring your sons (Israel) in their arms and your daughters shall be carried on their shoulders...they (the nations) shall bow down to you (Israel), with their faces to the earth, and lick up the dust of your feet. Then you will know that I am the Lord...I will contend with him who contends with you. I will feed those who oppress you with their own flesh...All flesh shall know that I the Lord am your Saviour, and your mighty Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob (Israel)
Jeremiah 30:11 “For I am with you (Israel) to save you; though I make a full end of the nations where I scattered you, yet I will not make a complete end of you.”
Jeremiah 30:14-17 “All your lovers have forgotten you...your sins have increased and your sorrow is incurable...Therefore all those devour you shall be devoured and all your adversaries, every one shall go into captivity...because they called you an outcast, saying: ‘This is Zion, no one seeks her.’”
Jeremiah 31:31-33 “Behold the days are coming says the Lord, when I make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah...I will put My law in their minds and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God and they shall be My people.”
A lot of people say (rightly) that the coming tribulation judgements are because of the sin of the world and that God’s grace has run out, but there is another overlooked, very important reason: It is because of the sin of the world against Israel, and the influence of the world’s sin on her!
Revelation 18:21-24 “A mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence the great city Babylon, shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore...For by your sorcery all the nations were deceived, and in her was found the blood of prophets and saints, and of all who were slain on the earth.”
By the way, if you are one of those who believe that end-time Babylon is literal Babylon in Iraq, please explain to me the above verse!!
The tribulation period sees a number of churches on earth serving Satan during this time. They are primarily the Catholic church and other orthodox churches as well as any and all that do not preach and teach salvation exclusively through the cross, which is the death, burial and resurrection.
The Feast of Trumpets:
The Feast of Trumpets is the next of the seven feasts to find its prophetic fulfilment.
Personally, I love classical trumpet music. I love the sound of the shofar properly blown. They are all spine tingling. No wonder the Bible is full of trumpets and shofars, they are sensational, producing sounds of warning, calling, and of freedom, liberty and glory!
We see what can only be a description of the rapture occurring with a trumpet blast in Revelation 4:1-2, 1Corinthians 15:52, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17.
There is so much of such value wrapped up in the Feast of Trumpets, but I will share some more as we get closer to the coming, last one. (September 29th) Yes I did say “last one.” That’s just to spark some debate and cause some arguments out there.
As we see this Feast approaching, we will know much more. It is of major importance.
There is a sign coming that will cause the metamorphosis of the Jews into children of God.
Ezekiel 37:25-28 “Then they shall dwell in the land that I have give to Jacob My servant...I will make a covenant of peace with them...My tabernacle (temple) also shall be with them. Indeed, I shall be their God and they shall be My people. The nations shall know that I the Lord sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forever more.”
The rapture of the true church, and Israel being saved is the milestone, the banner to the nations and the great sign.
False doctrines with dangerous tentacles:
Very often false doctrine becomes worse due to the knock on effects to other doctrines and verses, and tentacles of error that cause problems. Sometimes these knock effects are only seen further down the line when they actually knock on and appear.
Sometimes they are taught inadvertently. But almost always they are as a response to a spirit of error, in the teacher.
Some errors are just personal differences and no big deal. Others are curse producing, and others will land you in hell.
In these days, because we are in a highly spiritually charged environment, where Satan knows his days are numbered, (Revelation 12:12) we must be more vigilant.
Perhaps the biggest and worst false doctrine is replacement theology. It is highly toxic.
Replacement theology teaches that the church has replaced Israel. But, know this: This doctrine is not static. It is about to go through a revolutionary metamorphose into a far worse and deadly beast. It will swallow all of its present adherents and end up taking more than half the world to hell. I will soon share more on this terrible soon-coming deadly transformation.
If you, Mr. Wolf in the pulpit, preach and teach replacement theology in its current form, I have one very simple question for you:
Israel will soon repent and be saved. If the church is Israel, that then should mean that the church has to repent and be saved? How can the church, which has already been saved on repentance, be saved on repentance?
Know this and know it very well. Replacement theology is an evil spirit. It is a high ranking evil spirit with hordes of demons under its control.
Be warned again of the coming mutation of replacement theology, Satan’s spearhead.
Satan and his world will do all they can to get rid of Israel. He knows the plan of God to bring them to salvation and use them as His agents in the tribulation period. If Satan can neutralise the Jews, make Israel part of a normal godless world he will. He will use the compromised, spineless, weak church as one of his arsenal of weapons.
The pagan, Babylonian, Baal worship doctrines of Easter and Christmas are not only false doctrines and pure heresy but are deeply offensive to Jews. They are barriers, obstacles and stumbling blocks to the Jews and pollute their view of Messiah.
Be discerning! Do not touch the teachings of those who have been in great error and not repented and broken free.
Alternatively, deep repentance is a wonderful cleanser. Truth is the only solid foundation. All error is like quicksand! You need the fullness of the Spirit to lead you and guide you. (John 16:13) Don’t be afraid of those who have gone off the rails a little and repented, made right and come back. Many times they have a whole lot more to offer than before.
We could call the seventy years of Israel’s independence, their modern captivity to the world’s ways. But more than that it is their time of pregnancy and hibernation! It is their time of incubation.
Israel is on the verge of repentance. Repentance is a powerful regenerative force. It lifts you up and renews you and cleans you up. It makes you right now even when you were wrong. It is empowering. Above all, repentance produces acceptance and deep rest.
The entire world will soon see the results of large scale national repentance and renewal in Israel.
Even nature itself is anticipating and awaiting these things. It is groaning under the sin of man as it waits.
The beautiful, peaceful calls of the birds and insects and things natural are presently being subdued by the shattering piercing, howling sirens of sin. Soon – great peace!
The question is: Are you ready? If not why, and what are you going to do about it?
It’s a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God!
The trunk of the elephant and the baobab tree are similar. They are both beautiful giants of the African landscape and amongst my favourites! I took these two pictures in Botswana and the Limpopo region, respectively and blended them together.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
