Shabbat Shalom to all!
Time the eternal element:
Time is a most precious gift. Be careful to divide you time wisely and spiritually productively.
A long time school friend of mine, an ex airline captain and legendary acrobatic pilot was killed a few weeks ago as his plane crashed. I had met with him recently and knew he was not saved then.
The point is that our time is of utmost value and can get snatched away from us in a flash. – Ready or not!
I can’t imagine the horror of the unsaved, stepping into eternity and then discovering that the price for their salvation had already been paid, and they refused it.
I have come to a hairs breadth of losing my life back in the 70s before I was saved. When I think back of that it makes me shudder! In fact if you’re not saved, and if you step out of bed, you are on thin ice with a fire below it!
So many people spend their time on futile, purely materialistically orientated things. They have wasted their lives and sold themselves to self, the world and the demonic, knowingly or not.
But know this: Your great gift of time has a time-stamp on it which is running out!
There is great security in knowing that our God knows all about us and what we will do with the time He has blessed us with, which makes you a very important person! Those struggling with purpose, meaning, and “who or why, am I” questions, this is for you:
The following is a compilation of the entirety of Psalm 139, showing your value and importance to the kingdom:
“O Lord you have searched me and know me, you understand my goings and my thoughts. You are acquainted with all my ways. Every word on my tongue, You know altogether. You have hedged me in from behind and before. Where can I go from Your Spirit? Your right hand shall hold me and lead me. I am fearfully and wonderfully made. You saw me before I was formed, and in Your book I am written. How precious are your thoughts to me? Search me O God and see if there is any wicked way in me and lead me in the way everlasting.”
I hope the above Psalm is music to your ears and light to your life.
You are of major importance to our Lord and you need Him more than you may think!
The greatest hoax in world history is that God is not, and you don’t need His salvation and holiness! The greatest hoax is “Tomorrow is another day; everything will carry on as normal.” If you are not saved or just living for self – you have been solidly hoaxed, hoodwinked and hooked!
Most people today are rebels to the living God and His word and don’t even know it. But He knows it and knows it well – every little bit!
Dealing with end-time rebellion to God, and homosexuality in particular, these amazing verses below offer quite an incredible insight! You would be wise to take heed.
“God gave them up to uncleanness and the lusts of their heart”. (Romans 1:24) “God gave them up to vile passions, exchanging what is natural for that which is against nature (women with women, likewise men with men) Even as they would not retain God in their knowledge; God gave them over to a debased mind”. (Romans 1:26, 28)
And now observe the ending this discourse:
Romans 1:32 “These knowing the righteous judgement of God, that those who practise such things are worthy of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practise them.”
Here we see a clear condemnation of those who simply “approve” of these sins. Be careful what you agree with and give your approval to, because God puts you in the same boat as them! In the verse below we see the positive side of what we approve.
Philippians 1:9-10 “I pray that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offence until the day of Messiah.”
Today the world is on short-time fuse, spiralling downwards. Firstly they overlook evil, then permit it, then legalise it, then promote it, then celebrate it and then persecute those who still call it evil!
What a mess this world is in and it’s time is just about up! The shofar is blowing!
The cross produces resurrection which saves and makes holy. Those who are enemies of the cross are by extension not saved and are unholy. Those of “another Jesus” are cross-less and in the same situation. They must save themselves. They are cursed. (Galatians 1:8, 2 Corinthians 11:4)
You can’t kill a resurrected Lord and His word! The Bible therefore, is the only truly resurrected book in the world, being the word of the living God. That also means that all things related to God’s call and plan for Israel is found in resurrection, so to speak. You can’t kill that which is resurrected!
Many ministers of the gospel are primed to be great end-time deceivers, especially those who justify and approve the mixture of paganism and truth, and those who approve of replacement theology. All ministers who lessen the importance of the cross and resurrection are a dangerous commodity!
In these end times, as prophesied, we are seeing a massive increase in lying, deception, false prophets, and seducing perverse spirits all in rebellion to God and His word.
Unsaved, be careful, your time is almost up. The fire below is burning a big hole right through the thin ice you are on! And there is a welcoming party of horror and terror awaiting your arrival! In your welcome party are many leaders, celebrities, peers and people of note - the ones who you respected and followed all your life.
Isaiah 14:9 “Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming. It stirs up the dead for you, all the chief ones of the earth, it has raised up from their thrones, all the kings of the nations.”
Isaiah 5:14 “Sheol (hell) has enlarged itself and opened its mouth beyond measure. Their glory and multitude and pomp, and he is jubilant shall descend into it.”
It’s time to know God deeply and intimately. It’s time to be known by our Lord, it’s time to stand out from the crowd, be holy and different. Time is running out!
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!
