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!
Help in troubled times:
The US economy is strong, as are the major world economies, but we are seeing critical cracks in then all as they slow! Technical indicators are pointing to a world recession. The most reliable indicator is the US bond-yield curve inversion. I won’t go into details, because, it’s not our thing. It is a reliable recession indicator.
The timing of this lines up with so many other prophetic events, soon to come. Once a recession begins it escalates into many other areas.
A recession does not mean a market crash is on the horizon, although that’s always possible, based on sudden falling sentiment, which spreads like lightning. It means hard times are coming.
Why mention this? It is because these things affect the whole world, including Christians. Are you able to withstand coming troubles? Yes, the worst will be in the tribulation, but we are in the forerunner period now.
Many believers will be casting out economic recession demons, to no avail. Many will be asking why, why, why! It’s often a different story when your own family is involved. Are we as believers all family?
It’s difficult to recognise other believers as such, and as part of our very own family, with who we will be spending eternity. Through the new birth, we are brought together by the blood of our Lord.
Troubles in the world demand your attention and focus, but if you let them eat into you, they will damage you, discourage you, lead you astray and rob you of your coming reward. These troubles in the world will be temporary and will soon make way for a new glorious eternity!
The things of the Spirit of God are real and alive. You can’t think through to spiritual reality with your intellect or understanding, but you can and must see and get rid of the obstructions to the Spirit of God being released in and through you to other people.
God’s word – the truth, is your anchor and your hope. It is your reality and it is the source of your help and for others in trouble. It is His ancient word, a miracle and a mystery that is still so relevant today, in interpretation and application! What is amazing to me is that God’s word is so ancient, yet so true. It outlines the very reason why fallen modern man will reject it. It shows that modern man has another, modern gospel, chopped and changed to suite the sin-loving, compromised masses!
Ancient metal Bibles found in Jordan:
John 6:63 “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you, they are spirit and are life.”
Proverbs 23:23 “Buy the truth and do not sell it, also wisdom, instruction and understanding.”
Psalm 62:5 “My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him.”
Note the amazing things in the verses above: Truth, wisdom, instruction and understanding are essential in these days. The source is exclusively, the Spirit of God, turning words to life!
In the face of troubles, people run to all sorts of sources for help, including the occult. There they find comfort and relief from Satan himself, in disguise, for a short while – then he kills!
But people also run to stable believers for help, are you able to really help them in the things of God and the things that will matter for eternity?
Whatever remains untouched by the work of the cross and the Spirit in of God in you, remains untouched in others too. It is the way of the mystery of the work of the cross that draws people to our King and Lord. These, the broken ones, carrying their cross, are the beautiful ones in these days.
Psalm 42:7 “Deep calls under deep!”
You can do many good things in life, all devoid of the Spirit of God and amounting to a big zero.
2 Corinthians 4:10 “We carry around in our body the death of Yeshua, so that His life may revealed in our bodies.”
What a staggering verse that is? We carry death to produce life!
Have you thought of the fact you are walking containers of the mystery of the death of our Lord – salvation for others?
Romans 6:5 “If we have been united with Him in His death, we will also be united with Him in resurrection.”
Are you able to accurately help seeking believers on all the issues of Israel, Jerusalem, the Jews and the plan of God for them? I tell you, we might know these things well, but the great majority of believers worldwide are in the dark on this incredible and exciting subject.
As a result of their darkness they are vulnerable to be Satan’s “light.”
Edition 470: May 21st 2019
These are words of life!
We are now in prophetic times of great importance with many powers, spiritual forces of deception and many spiritual dangers. What is your world-view and against what or whom is it measured? (2 Corinthians 10:12)
When you let a cat out of the bag, you can catch it and put it back again. When you let a genie out of the bottle, its smoke dissipates like a prowling, stalking ghost and you can’t put it back again.
Modern man, unrestrained is getting worse fast, and its spreading just as fast. (Hosea 4:1-2) Only active spiritual warfare will keep you safe. Don’t underestimate the dangers.
There is a new end-time hostility between the politics of the left, the right and the centre. There is another position though, and that is to be a non-participant! But you can and must always be a prayer warrior in these things.
The end of end-time politics will demonstrate perfectly the failure of the left, the right and the centre. It will demonstrate the failure of the god of democracy itself, because its major participant the true God has been replaced.
It will demonstrate the failure of super-weapons, the A-bomb, stealth and cyber technology. It will usher in great destruction, and it will demonstrate the full and final victory and triumph of the kingdom of God.
Of course God does use politicians for His purposes. He is using President Trump now. God raises up and brings down world leaders according to His will. (Daniel 2:21) Generally, they will all fail!
End-time politics will finally prove once and for all that fallen man is fallen and cannot save himself. It will demonstrate how incredibly dangerous it is to be in battle, blind as a bat and ignorant as hell.
For the believer the contrast could not be more startlingly different.
“We will be like Him” says the Bible, in supernatural, incorruptible, resurrection bodies. We will “know all things.” We will be totally invincible. We will have arrived!
People want to be right. True believer will soon be right, never wrong on anything again ever.
We as true believers are the right light shining in the world warts and all.
One of the main reasons the world must get rid of God and His people is so that no light shines into the world’s darkness.
Politics believes it can bring a better life, liberated from its problems.
The lie of the liars of liberation is that they can and will bring liberation to the masses. All they can and will do is bring deeper bondage and captivity of the masses to their cursed god of curses.
There are certain things that are politically and spiritually neutral, but there are some things that bring specific curses with them. How can a politician promise blessing from a cursed source? (Some issues that generate curses include: Promotion of homosexuality and LGBT, coming against Israel, all forms of witchcraft, legalism and much more).
The evil agenda:
The purpose of devil is to break the world (or a nation under God) free, from moral anchors of God.
Satan as the god of this world, (including politics) comes to “kill, steal, destroy and lie”. With these traits come the fruits of pride, stress, anxiety, guilt, hatred and much more.
The end of the socialist agenda and the work of the devil is control, but it is actually more than that. It is control so that he can kill and destroy that which is of God. He can’t get to the heart of the believer, but he causes his destruction all around and in the world.
Our Lord is the way the truth and the life. (John 14:6) With this come the fruits: Love joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. (Galatians 5:22-23) Humility before God and His word generates peace and calm.
Satan’s way (and the way of religion) is to work from the outside to the inside. It is to get the individual to do and obey certain laws, beliefs and principles of the world, so that he tows the line.
The born-again Christian has within him, the perfection of God in his spirit. The fruits of this then diffuse from the inside to the outside in our lives. If this is so, which it is, the rapture of the church will remove all of this in a blinding flash. Do you see what I see?
This is exactly what Satan wants in the world. He wants to destroy this perfection of God and its fruits and its people. Tragically, for the world left behind after the rapture, Satan will use those left behind to form his new godless world, rich in sin and evil and now with no resistance, because the church has gone.
Think about this: To “advance” Satan must get people to come together, believe and do the same things; all influenced externally, hence the media!
The curse of the media:
The media has is Satan’s mouthpiece to the masses, because he is the god of the world.
Today the media is a willing, leading participant in casting down the truth of God’s word, making a mockery of those who believe it. Here is a classic example of how the media twists things.
Choice involves discrimination. If you chose a purple balloon instead of a green one, that is discrimination against the green balloon. But it is only a “charged” issue when it is made a socio-political issue by the media. They believe in free choice, as long as the choice is theirs. If your choice is not their choice, you are accused of discrimination against green balloons.
Misinformation is a curse of the media, but no information is just as bad resulting in masses going astray. The mass-media are experts at selective journalism to paint their picture their way.
Spiritual ignorance will keep you in bondage to the world and its demons.
If the world knew what was good for it, it would preserve and protect biblical truth, even if they are not saved themselves!
Why should the world protect and preserve Christians and Jews: They have the blessing of God upon them and locked into them. That blessing spreads into families, businesses, entire communities and nations. It is contagious and can transform an entire nation from curse to blessing. God’s word has every answer to all your problems.
Yet today the politics of the world is coming against God and His own people!
►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.
Some churches today are doing wonderfully and serving the Lord for His glory, but many others, particularly in the west have become flea-ridden. (Fleas come from wolves)
There are two questions you should ask your pastor: “What are your views on homosexuality? What are your views on the Palestinians?” One relates to morality and the other to the socio-political prophetic realm. Both offer great insights into where he stands with God.
The answer to these two questions alone, demonstrates if he exalt human rights and the opinions of man above God’s word, which itself demonstrates much more about him.
If you go home after church scratching like crazy, you’ve got fleas, and you know where they came from! Time to find a clean church!
Today there is a big push to get rid of obstacles to Satan’s new world order of so-called peace. To them, peace is the absence of resistance and opposition, especially from God and His holiness.
The world has become dedoctrinated of God’s word, and indoctrinated with complacency mediocrity and evil. (The word “dogma” is the word for doctrine.) It is dogmatic.
The mass-media is not the defender of human rights. It is the defender of godless human rights. Have you ever heard the media criticise Satanism? The hidden agenda of the media is to create blindness, to all things spiritual and of God, so that a nation under God can be transformed into a nation under Satan, ready to be controlled, and then ultimately destroyed.
►Truth’s attackers, the mass-media, the liberal left, and offshoots like Hollywood, and the so-called intelligentsia, all have the same agenda born in the heart of Satan. It is to prepare the way to hell.
Politics can be a prison of pride and lies. Most politicians promise a paradise but deliver nothing but enslavement to more of the same. And the people buy it all because it is their god. Politics is the world’s way to management of itself. Today it is mostly spiritually bankrupt.
I’m not suggesting a theocracy here this side of heaven, but with God and His word on the outside – you are in a prison of your own making, with some pretty nasty comrades in sin inside with you.
You can’t destroy God and His word. You can try all you like, but like everyone from Lucifer, to Adam, to the antichrist and all in between, you will only destroy yourself. Not very clever!
As the doom of the devil approached his efforts to destroy and silence God are in high gear. We need to be aware of his evil devices and stand against them as prayer warriors.
A shocking new law from the US Democratic Party:
National religious freedom includes the right to worship freely, but also to express that worship in its manifesting fruits. We are now seeing what the Bible calls sin, enshrined in law in many nations. But like the smoke of the genie it is spreading further.
Acts 5:28-29 “Did we not strictly command you not to teach in this name? Look you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and you intend to bring this Man’s blood upon us. Then Peter and the other apostles said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.”
A new bill drawn up by the US Democratic Party been passed in the Democratic led House of Representatives called the HR5 Equality Bill. It still awaits confirmation by the Republican controlled Senate, where it is likely to fail.
►The bill normalises and legalises LBGT behaviour in private homes and businesses of all people, making them fully equal in all respects. But that is not the problem. The bill essentially criminalises opposition to it wherever it is expressed. That violates the believer’s conscience. That criminalises holiness!
Another problem with this evil bill is that if it is fully adopted by all, and becomes law, it will knock on to other nations, becoming the new norm of a nation / world under Satan.
Why is biblical holiness so hated? It is because, as a fruit of the new-birth, it is a ticket and key to God’s glorious eternal, exclusive, rewards and exaltation by Him. Holiness is also hated because the fruits of the world can never compare or produce even one of them.
Holiness is also hated because it is the way to pure peace of mind, which the world can’t achieve.
Russia: A new anti-terrorism law signed by Putin sounds good at face value. But there is something else smelly, smeared in this face! ●The law prevents foreign guests from speaking in Russian churches unless they have a work permit. ●Sharing your faith with non-believers will be punishable. ●Religious activity is no longer permitted in homes. ●Every citizen is obliged to report those who break these new laws. ●You may not pray or study the Bible in the presence of a non-believer. ●Church alter calls are no longer permitted. – And more.
7000 Russian evangelical churches and pastors have come together to pray and fast against these new laws. (Charisma News)
There is a new bill in the works in South Africa to regulate religion. It will have the same effects as some of these points above. (South African Christians did successfully pray into nullification, another similar bill a while ago.)
►At the end of the day, Christians around the world need to mobilise in prayer against all these similar laws coming about worldwide right now.
Remember my verse for year and just how appropriate it has been to multitudes of situations: “If you forsake the ways of God you will praise the wicked.” Proverbs 28:4
The veracity of Bible prophecy:
Satan removes God from society just when He is needed most. The reason is to blind the masses to his work of producing control, and also most importantly, to blind the people to the veracity of Bible prophecy, which is the ultimate proof of the truth.
If Bible prophecy is true, you are going to hell, if not born again! That is just as prophetic as other, regular prophesies. Likewise, if Bible prophecy is true, you are destined for unimaginable, eternal glory if you are saved.
Politicians are prophets in a sense (fallen ones). They promise what prophecy does. They say that if you vote for them, you will be “saved” from this or that and have a real good life, and if you’re not a supporter then you will suffer. They are all pitiful liars!
To get anywhere, the politician must be bound by the fear and approval of man and not necessarily God. They are spiritually destitute and have no prophetic insight. (With a few exceptions)
As peoples lives progressively fall apart we are presented with great evangelistic opportunities. “Where sin abounds, grace does much more abound!”
Powers that be:
We must see into the spirit realm that there is a giant spiritual conflict on the go. It is a conflict of powers. The Bible is full of these meanings.
To offer some insight, here are some of the original words and applications for “power.” There are many more right through the Bible:
Strong’s H 3581 “Koach” Meanings: Power of God, of angels, great strength,
Strong’s H3027 “Yad” Meanings: Power of man, fractional part of power.
Strong’s H6184 “Ariyts” Meanings: Political, violent oppressor, terror-striking.
Strong’s H2428 “Chayil” Meanings: Military power, force, valour, mighty strength.
Strong’s G1325 “Didomi” Meanings: Power to deliver one. To give over.
Strong’s G2904 “Kratos” Meanings: Dominion, strength, force.
Strong’s G1849 “Exousia” Meanings: Executive jurisdiction, authority. (Satan’s power)
Strong’s G1411: “Dynamis.” Meanings: Moral, miracle, explosive as in dynamite.
Here are a few applications: Proverbs 18:21 (H3027) 2 Timothy 3:5 G1411) Philippians 3:10 (G1411)
●All the power of politics can’t get rid of sin. ●The power found in science and technology can’t get rid of sin. ●Medicine can’t get rid of sin. ●Psychology and its words can’t get rid of sin. ●Strong, powerful emotions, can’t get rid of sin. ●Socio-political laws, actions and philosophies can’t get rid of sin. ●Ethnic culture can’t get rid of sin. ●Religion, keeping laws and doing works can’t get rid of sin.
So, you are doomed – or are you?
Yes you are doomed outside of the cross of Calvary. It is the only thing that gets rid of sin. But it is drastic! It kills you the sinner, dead! Then it raises you up to sin-free newness of life, in your spirit, with an internal power to work it all from the inside to the outside.
The greatest demonstration of supernatural power evervwill be at the rapture.
There is another eternal power still to be fully manifest. It is far superior and far above all we can imagine!
Hebrews 6:5 “...The powers of the age to come...”
There is power in light. But beware; there is an illegitimate power in darkness too:
Colossians 1:13 “He has delivered us from the power of darkness and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of His love.”
After the rapture, the Jews will be the “light of the world” and the “light to the Gentiles.” (Isaiah 49:6 42:6, 60:3) Satan wants these lights put out fast.
Israel will become holy in a flash. She will become the “light of the world” as quickly as it takes to hit the switch!
Deuteronomy 28:9-10 “The Lord will establish you (Israel) as a holy people to Himself...Then all the peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by My name, and they shall be afraid of you.”
Ezekiel 36:25-27 “Then I shall sprinkle clean water on you and you shall be clean...I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you...I will put My Spirit in you...”
Isaiah 4:3 “It shall come to pass that he who is left in Zion and he who remains in Jerusalem, will be called holy...”
Fulfilled Bible prophecy is one of the most powerful verifications of the veracity of God’s word. It has never failed. Logic dictates that it never will.
Have you ever sat down and thought about who controls your mind? Very few have.
Our Lord will be your Lord of glory forever, or your supreme, terrifying Judge!
Do you think our Lord will congratulate you the unbeliever, for all your excellent, good, loving, caring, compassionate, successful work you did in your life, as you are sent to hell for not having your name in the Lamb’s Book of Life?
The world calls itself a “brave new world.” Let me tell you- they are right! You need to be extremely brave to launch yourself on a one way journey to hell!
The problem with politics and the very core of democracy is that it has become the machinery of the god of this world and people treat it like a god. It has become the delivery vehicle of many cursed beliefs and practises.
The thinking is that if a majority agrees on any issue it is right. How wrong that is!
Many people think God is democratic and then equate democracy with God making the two one!
In these end-days, politics, like the media and entertainment world, is all a lot more evil, aggressive, confrontational and forceful than before. It is spiritually charged.
Democracy only works in a nation under God, because that is the constitutional, superior standard and backstop, albeit in the background.
The crowning glory of Satan’s seven-year triumph – the tribulation period, will be the destruction of free-will politics, democracy and the rise of the tyranny of one-worldism, all to be destroyed by the wrath of God.
Be sure of this one thing: The mass media will mutate and transform themselves into Satan’s promoters, advocates, ambassadors and publicist all the way to their fiery end.
Jeremiah 17:5-7 “Cursed is the man who trust in man and makes flesh his strength ...He shall be like a shrub in the desert and not see good when it comes. Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is in the Lord.”
Psalm 1:1-3, Psalm 92:12, Proverbs 3:33, Ezekiel 47:12
I took these two pictures in the beautiful Namib Desert.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
