●The US election remains undecided as the legal battle gets underway. Anywhere God’s ways are revealed, it all comes under attack. The battle at the moment is for biblical principles in the land (at least some) and the ways of the wicked. The US has had the privilege of having God’s word define family. His word defines a male and female. His word defines where life begins. His word defines what sin is, righteousness and holiness is. The removal of the Bible from society opens people for the evil and wickedness to manifest and grow unhindered. (Jeremiah 17:9) Removing God removes restraint and puts the masses in terrible agreement, awaiting judgement. (Hosea 4:1-2) The US Democratic Party and all liberal left movements around the world are collectively orchestrating their own demise. There are far bigger things at work than politics!
Job 12:24-25 “He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, and makes them wander in a pathless wilderness. They grope in the dark without the light; he makes then stagger like a drunken man.” (So now you know why Joe must go!)
This election is far from over, and may spring a surprise soon!
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose of this report is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
What is the Salvation of a nation?
Isaiah 32:18 “My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places.”
1 Timothy 2:2 “Pray for kings and all who are in authority, that you may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.”
As Christians we are ambassadors for Messiah’s kingdom, sent to the darkness to shed God’s light in it. Of course, there is a limit to that, because Satan is the god of the world, but nevertheless we do need to be God’s torch-bearer.
Jeremiah 29:7 “Seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive and pray for it, for in its peace you will have peace.”
There’s a distinction between God’s requirements for personal salvation and for the salvation of a nation. The scriptures need to be applied to each. So many, including pastors go off into a ditch on one side of the road, and essentially loose the plot!
It’s not so much about Trump or Biden, but more about spirits and biblical issues.
It’s not so much about the personalities but the policies and principles they represent.
In supporting one candidate, by default you are rejecting the other. So if one candidate represents a whole lot of biblical issues and the other, the opposite, you are standing for the policies much more than the personality. You cannot support one candidate and not all of his policies.
What’s different now is that God’s judgement has entered front stage. The call for repentance on the big world-influencing issues like abortion and moral degeneration is being echoed by all men of God, in tune with God, and even most rabbis.
If the call for repentance goes unheeded, judgement is on the doorstep. The liberal left parties, worldwide are not only ignoring God’s call, but making the situation far worse, by intensifying their rebellion on the very issues that have caused God’s judgment.
Psalm 58:2 “In heart you work wickedness. You weigh out the violence of your hands in the earth.”
We as believers are to go into the world from a position of being separate from it. I heard one pastor say the other day: “O well let’s just forget about Trump and focus only on Jesus.” When you throw in the towel of your ambassadorship you are capitulating to the devil. (2 Corinthians 5:20)
I’m not by any means suggesting that Christians become politicians, or go overboard on these things.
The Bible divides us into spirit, soul and body. The Bible says we are in this world but not of it.
It is our soul and body that is in this world with the nations. It is our spirit that is born again and seated in heavenly places.
We are not to be in friendship with the world and entangled in it, but to operate as agents of the kingdom of God, bringing both light and warning to the nations.
Multitudes are in the valley of decision not just about politics but their eternal life. Many are going to come like a flood into the kingdom in coming days, and many will be swept away like a flood!
I have written much on this subject, but the Bible is full of it. Here are more appropriate verses:
Proverbs 24:21 (Amp) “My son, reverently fear the Lord and king, and do not associate with those who are given to change of allegiance, and are revolutionary.”
Proverbs 28:28 (Amp) “When the wicked arise, men hide themselves, but when they perish, the righteous increase and become many.”
Proverbs 28:2 (Amp) “When a land transgresses, it has many rulers, but when the ruler is a man of discernment, understanding and knowledge, its stability will long continue.”
Proverbs 29:16 (Amp) “When the wicked are in authority transgression increases, but the righteous shall see the fall of the wicked.”
Isaiah 60:12 “The nation and kingdom that will not serve you shall perish; those nations shall be utterly laid waste.”
Psalm 9:17 “The wicked shall be turned back into Sheol (hell), even all the nations that forget God.”
Nehemiah 4:14 (Amp) “Do not be afraid of the enemy, remember the Lord great and terrible, and imprint Him on your minds, and take from Him courage to fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives and your homes.”
1 John 4:4 “Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.”
If President Trump is returned to office, the world may get a respite and holding off of judgement for a while, but it won’t override God’s overall purpose of bringing the rebellious world to its knees! If Biden ends up on the throne, it will expedite and hasten the terror to come.
You can and must secure your salvation now. If you are not sure or not saved, now is the time – not tomorrow! As you will see in the new edition, “Contrasting new world orders,” we are on the very verge of some things that will shock, stagger, surprise and stun you!
Edition 473: June 11th 2019
The Rapture and replacement theology.
These are words of life!
Replacement theology is the erroneous teaching that the church has replaced Israel. Wherever you find Israel, or Jerusalem mentioned in the Bible, especially in a prophetic sense, you replace them with the church. It also presumes that all the blessings, promised to the Jews, now come upon the church, while the curses come upon the Jews.
This heretical teaching was first developed by the early Catholic church, to keep the Jews out. An extension to this was the replacing of the Saturday Sabbath with Sunday, and the replacement of the Feasts of the Lord with the pagan feasts of Christmas and Easter – again for the reason of keeping the Jews out of the church. (Look these things up if you don’t believe me.)
Replacement theology is of the same spirit as Nazism. The former gets rid of the Jews theologically and the latter physically. But it’s the same spirit at work. In fact it is of the same spirit as Judas and ultimately of antichrist, which is seen when you put all its workings and conclusions together.
Why replacement theology?
The reason is of course spiritual in origin. The word “antichrist” means to come against and replace with the false Messiah. In the same way, replacement theology must do both. It must come against the truth and replace it with error.
God’s great work of grace is the glorious church. But it’s not His only work. He has, is, and will complete His biblically revealed and promised work with the Jews. Many in the church, due to their pride can’t or won’t see that. They are blinded by their pride and hence deceived.
God’s final work of the ages includes regathering, saving and using Israel to bring salvation to the world in the tribulation and the defeat of Satan and the world's armies. Satan obviously does not like this and tries to stop it, especially as his defeat approaches.
The satanic purpose of replacement theology is to get rid of the God-chosen vehicle of Satan's defeat – Israel. (Jeremiah 51:20)
The Catholic desecration of the Jews:
A major purpose of the Catholic church from its foundation, has been to get rid of the Jews. It has had an obsession with domination of the world at the expense of the Jews. The reason is the same as that of the Nazis and Hitler, whose desire was world domination and to create a one thousand year Nazi-ruled millennium of peace.
The Catholic obsession with the removal of the Jews reached its climax in the inquisitions during which millions of Jews were murdered by the popes.
But the precedent began long before this.
In 170BC Antiochus arose to power with a satanic hatred for the Jews. His full name was Mithridates Antiochus which means: “Given by the deity Mithra”. Mithra is believed to be one of the angels cast out of heaven at the fall of Lucifer. He is closely associated with the satanic god, Zeus and also the popes. He is also believed to be linked to the coming antichrist. (That’s another story, which I’m not getting into now.)
For three years the temple was desecrated by Antiochus who also erected an altar to Zeus (a type of Satan) ordering that pigs be sacrificed on it. Antiochus hated the Jews and introduced other measures to humiliate them and prevent Jewish custom from spreading, including the burning of all copies of the Hebrew law.
Burning Bibles owned by Jews, the laity and other religious books was an active pastime of the Catholic’s in the dark ages.
The practises of Antiochus were a type in some respects of the coming “abomination of desolation” to be set up in the new third Temple in Jerusalem.
It’s interesting that the practice of sacrificing a pig to Zeus instead of a lamb is still seen today in the form of the Easter Ham and the Christmas Ham, instituted by the Catholics. There is much more on the sacrificing of pigs in many Babylonian customs too. That’s the origin of the glazed ham on the table.
So, the next time your piggy pastor instructs you to prepare the Easter or Christmas ham for the family table, you know the origin of the evil tradition. We need obedience to God and His word and not to Catholic deception.
By the way, this has nothing to do with the discussion of eating ham generally, just this specific custom and tradition born in hell.
I have maintained before that replacement theology is about to mutate into a much more vicious, virile, dangerous beast. We’re already seeing the manifestation of it in many churches.
But why now? The answer is simple: Soon and very soon it will be the time of Jacob’s trouble – the tribulation period. We are very close. This will be the time when Israel replaces the church, not the other way around, because the church will be gone.
There is no way theologically, that replacement theology can accommodate a pre-tribulation rapture, or even a mid-trib rapture. The only view that works doctrinally for them is post trib.
As the church disappears in rapture, Israel becomes the central focus of God’s work, as He brings them to salvation through glorious awakening, as well as many tribulation judgements. But if the church replaces Israel, that means that the church will be awakened to be saved in the tribulation! It does not make sense!
But a large part of the church has become pro-Israel and pro-God’s plans for them. The rapture is coming soon, with the big swing to Israel. So, these pro-Israel churches, many who will even put their own lives on the line for Israel, must be seen as a very great threat to the replacement crowd!
If you believe in replacement theology, you must get rid of Bible dispensations. You then have a problem with the verses themselves speaking of, and identifying dispensations. (Ephesians 1:10, Hebrews 1:1, Colossians 1:25) You then have a great problem with numerous end-time verses and cannot make them fit. This is why churches of replacement theology are absolutely useless in the area of eschatology.
Replacement theology is Spirit-less and spirit-full. (No Spirit of God and of the spirit of error.)
Replacement theology, because it is a giant error, will rob you of your alertness, awareness and kill your defences. It will in fact cause you to change sides, from God to the devil, further down the line.
Replacement theology is a powerful blinding force. It blinds you to a huge amount of Bible prophecy.
Replacement theology creates doubt in the uninformed and spiritually ignorant. In the tribulation period Israel will be of most importance and significance. The doubt created only plays into the hands of the enemy – just what he wants!
The way of replacement theology ends with acceptance of the antichrist. The pro-Israel view ends with a pre-tribulation rapture and a marriage feast with our Lord in heaven.
Error + repentance = the road to truth. Error +pride = the road to antichrist.
Replacement theology and its evil twin anti-Semitism:
The two portions of scripture below relate to the tribulation period and the Satan-empower antichrist. If ever there were two clear scriptures outlining end-time anti-Semitism, these are them.
Revelation 12:17 “The dragon was enraged with the woman (Jews) and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Yeshua the Messiah.”
Daniel 8:23-25 “In the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors have reached their fullness, a king shall arise, having fierce features, who understands sinister schemes. 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. Through his cunning he shall cause deceit to prosper...he shall destroy many in their prosperity. He shall even rise against the Prince of princes, but shall broken without hand.”
Note the course and the cause of the events:
In the Revelation verse, the cause is God’s protection upon Jews fleeing persecution. This enraged the antichrist and he went off to kill more Jews, and by implication, Gentile tribulation saints, who are have become believers.
In the Daniel verses we see that the time period is when sin in the world has reached a pinnacle. He turns on and makes war with the holy people. Note the contrast: It is the fullness of the world’s sin and the holiness of the trib saints.
Revelation 13:7-8 “It was granted to him (antichrist) to make war with the saints (trib) and to overcome them, and authority was given him over every tribe tongue and nation, and all who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb, slain from the foundation of the world.”
Who replaces whom?
The list below flies in the face of replacement theology – totally:
Israel is: ●Elected ●Rebelled ●Rejected ●Regathered ●Repented ●Accepted.
The rapture replaces the church with Israel and the Catholic church goes into the tribulation period, with other similar orthodox churches. (Revelation 2:22, 17:5)
As the church is removed from the earth at the start of the tribulation, Israel sees and recognises her Messiah and becomes God’s chief agent for His work in that time.
But at the same time, the compromising, and counterfeit church, which most certainly includes those of replacement theology, goes right into the tribulation period. Remember that replacement theology also claims that all the blessing come upon them and the all the curses upon the Jews.
This is what you call a grand oops!
Yes those in the tribulation do get the chance to be saved and become tribulation saints, but many actually become Satan’s workers killing the saints!
While the tribulation is on the go the true church are in fact spectators from heaven. (Revelation 3:10)
Many have tried to replace Israel using their own demon-inspired intellect, just like all the clever idiots today. Israel still stands and thrives – with a few bullet holes!
Isaiah 18:3 “All inhabitants of the world and dwellers on earth: When He lifts up a banner on the mountains, you see it; and when He blows a trumpet, you hear it.”
There are a number of different trumpet types in the Bible and a number of different uses. You can’t lump them all together. In some cases the original words used differ, and in some cases you need to apply correct context and historic precedent in your application.
Here is an excellent example of what I mean:
Numbers 10:2-3 (Amp) “Make two trumpets of silver, of hammered, turned work (from one piece of silver), that you may use them, to call the congregation together and for the breaking of camp. When they both are blown, all the congregation shall assemble before you at the door of the tent of meeting.”
Two priests, who were sons of Aaron, were to blow the silver trumpets.
The name “Aaron” means, “Light bringer.” (H 175) Today the sons of the light bringer are ready to sound the alarm! Can you hear them yet? Can you see the light? Can you understand their message?
The temple menorah was to be hammered from a single, piece of gold. Only Aaron and his sons could light the menorah. (Exodus 25:31-37 Numbers 8:1-2, Revelation 1:12-20, 4:5)
Here we see Aaron and his sons were involved in the construction of both the silver trumpets and the golden menorah, both out a single huge piece of pure silver and of gold. This symbolises unbroken holiness, righteousness and purity. It symbolises extremely great value.
Both silver and gold are precious metals, of great value. They are reflective of God’s glory and it represents righteousness in the Bible. (Proverbs 10:20, 12:6, 25:11)
Bear in mind that the two silver trumpets were initially used to call the assembly together for the journey to the Promised Land. That speaks symbolically of Israel entering her spiritual promised land of salvation beginning at a Feast of Trumpets.
The two silver trumpets are blown on Rosh Hashanah, the Feast of Trumpets. They are the initial gathering call of the great assembly of God’s people.
Then as we go into the various celebrations and messages of this incredible significant and symbolic feast, the shofar trumpets are blown in sequence. I (I won’t go into all the amazing details now, but will keep it all for a later edition as we approach the feast.
The reason for sharing these things up to this point is because I and numerous other Bible teachers, scholars and analysts place the rapture right here at Trumpets.
We have the Feast of Trumpets coming up on September 29th / Ocober 1st
The Feast of Trumpets is the next in line of the seven feasts to find its prophetic fulfilment. It will mark the end of the church age, the beginning of the tribulation period and the rapture.
As always, the prophetic events on the ground all need to dovetail together before we can look at anything related to timing. What we can say now, is that we are close. Many things are in line, but some things are not.
I would safely say – we are close and it’s time to be ready one way or another. If we have to wait, so be it, (mutter mutter)
Psalm 130:5-6 “I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His word do I hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning – I say, more than those who watch for the morning.”
A rapture note of interest:
As we get closer, the details of the rapture and surrounding events become more important. With this in mind, I am going to do a fairly in-depth look at the pre-tribulation rapture, the mid-trib view and the post trib view for a soon-coming edition or two.
I can tell you now that I have no belief at all in the post trib view. I reject it all. The mid-trib view has some very convincing arguments in favour of it, but for me the scale tips to the pre-trib position.
This entire area requires some hefty diligent, study, prayer and knowledge, and a head with some empty spaces that God can fill.
1 Corinthians 15:52 “In a moment, in a twinkling of an eye, at the last trump, for the trumpet shall sound and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”
The peace treaty:
The coming peace “Deal of the century” has been thrown a curved ball by the upheaval in Israeli politics right now. I don’t believe that the Kushner / Trump plan is the Daniel 9:27 deal, but I do believe it may be a path to it.
However there is another very real possibility, which I have mentioned before.
The Kushner / Trump deal may end up being irrelevant.
If there is a big outbreak of war in the Middle East now involving Israel and her neighbours, that is always in itself, a call for peace. That could result in a peace deal being struck of which we know nothing right now, because it hasn’t happened.
So, what I’m saying is the “Deal of the Century” is not cast in stone, as the only one to look out for.
The cost of replacement theology is great. It knocks on to so many other doctrines, creating confusion and in fact nothing but a curse. It is a ‘glue’ from evil spirits, entrapping many.
Those of replacement theology will go into the tribulation period. Some will become persecutors of the tribulation saints. They are enemies of God’s ways and workings today and into the near future.
The rapture will replace the church with Israel as they fill out their prophetic destiny and ultimately become one with all true believers.
These are dangerous days of great deception. The ill-informed are most vulnerable.
The truth will bless you or crush you. Error will crush you or crush you!
Please bear in mind that history repeats itself, when written in the Bible, and modern man learns nothing from God’s history book. Israel wins!
You will be known by your fruits that remain. (John 15:16)
I took this picture of the fish eagle on a river bank nearby.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
