|This ministry has a distinct kingdom, Messianic vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for the Jewish people and the church. My position is pre-trib! Personally: I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share these great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God.|

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 479: July 23rd 2019
Great end-time conflicts:
These are words of life!
Fortify the wall, get your spiritual weapons lined up and cleaned up ready to be brought into service.
You need to have defensive and offensive weapons on all sides, except your back! It is the Lord Himself that will be “your rear guard.” (Isaiah 52:12)
The greatest error of our time is not to see. It is to be blinded by the light! It is the error of seeing things from the wicked world’s point of view. In the sanctuary of darkness, your conscience will be seared, and you will be a vulture’s prey.
It’s okay to have spiritual hiccups for a short season and lose focus, but be careful out there, get rid of those hiccups quickly. They’re dangerous in these days.
Those who draw from polluted waters will themselves become polluted and then pollute others, and end up with more than a frog in the throat, or spiritual hiccups!
Many are inwardly drawn to error and have a natural propensity to be at home with it is. It’s always the same ones! You can be very sure that they are drawing form a polluted source!
Many of you out there would do well to throw out the polluted waters of your spiritual source.
A broken and clean heart before our Lord and the full acceptance of the work of the Spirit of God is the way to see clearly and with purity.
I recall way back in the 70s being fascinated with a piece of paper that had a silver emulsion on one side. When it was exposed to a controlled light and placed in developer, suddenly an image began to appear. You could manipulate the image intensity in various ways, but you were stuck with it once it had gone into a bath of fixer and then washed.
Back in those days that was the essence of how photography worked. Today we do most of these things digitally.
It is the Light of God that enlightens the image. But He shuts off its making as well.
The point for us all is that once the image of our lives has been reflected onto God’s eternal “paper” and been fixed, it’s a signed, sealed and delivered situation.
This, my friends is like the light of your glory. It will appear and it will last forever. It will not fade! Once your glory has been revealed by God’s light – that’s it, you can’t do it again.
Silver-coated photographic paper works only once!
Colossians 3:4 “When Messiah who is our life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.”
Isaiah 60:20 “Your sun shall no longer go down, nor shall your moon withdraw itself, for the Lord will be your everlasting light and the days of your mourning shall be ended.”
1 Thessalonians 5:5 “You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We are not in the night or darkness, therefore let us not sleep as the others do, but let us keep watch and be sober.”
Don’t waste your time on the rubbish the world has to offer. We don’t know how long we have? Of course there are some whose focus must legitimately be in success in the world, but it is always with the kingdom of God as a priority in their lives.
Personally, I have just had a terrible health “encounter” that I did not think I would come out of. Only a week or two later, after some cracking prayer from friends and my prayer partners, I’m almost back to normal again.
I would like to thank those who selflessly stood in the gap for me.
In fact I can now see the other side of the story. I have endeavoured to turn this around on the devil’s head and come out stronger for our Lord.
So, to me it is now already like a new milestone. I dedicate myself afresh to serving you.
Conflicts are ramping up!
The Straits of Hormuz are becoming the battle-waters of coming great conflict.
It’s not so much about oil-tankers carrying black gold from the deep to the west. It’s not so much about Iran and the US or Islam against Israel. It is about Satan and God!
Satan knows that one little spot – a choke-hold, a strangle-hold sees about 30% of the world’s oil need flow through Hormuz. That can disrupt the world economy in a flash if interfered with.
I’ve said for many years and do so again, this will be the nasty trigger to Gog and Magog and the other wars of prophecy in the region.
The question is not what you or I think on these issues, but whose side are you on in spiritual terms. (Revelation 12:12-13)
Where God goes and is acknowledged, and recognised, upliftment comes along. New vision and understanding comes along. It always works in the larger picture too. In other words, upliftment of society as a whole takes place – all for the betterment of mankind.
The source can even be one small ministry, which then spreads outwards. It is evil spreads in a lack of godliness in the nation.
Think of this: The USA has always been a “nation under God” to some degree. The US has always stood with and for Israel. You could see it in the inventiveness and success through their times.
Pretty soon the Space race began.
“Reach for the stars – reach for the final frontier” they said, and off they went in funny space suits to the final frontiers, the conquest of paradise, even though it amounted to not much more than a paradise ball of cheese in the sky!
►But the godless reject the ways of God and are drawn down! Relating to Israel we have the final frontier now being turned by the world-system to the “final solution again”!
As God’s glorious plan of salvation for the world flies through history, we see the wonderful plan encapsulated in:
Israel is: ●Elected ●Rebelled ●Rejected ●Regathered ●Repented ●Accepted.
On May 14th 1948, the Lion nation, soon to release the Lion of the tribe of Judah, became a nation, which was part of this process above. Israel reached for her lost Star in blind obedience to God’s prompting. The final frontier beside one arrived - their national Promised Land. (Their salvation in Messiah being the last frontier.)
But what happened the very next day? On May 15th 1948, the Palestinians declared it “Nakba” day. Meaning: “The day of catastrophe.”
If you seriously look at these two issues you can see those who have chosen heaven and those who have chosen hell!
It is: “Bless Israel and be blessed” – God. Or “Let’s wipe Israel off the map.” – Iran.
Who do you think will come out on top here? A lot more half the world have become thicker than 26 planks. – And many churches too.
Today, more and more, people have become so junk-filled that they can’t distinguish between what is right, holy and what is of the devil anymore.
Many times when you are an advocate and practitioner of God’s holiness, and His ways, people look at you funny! But don’t be concerned about that. God will look at them through eyes of fire and fury – soon – not very funny!
Rend you hearts! Be clean...you are in conflict even now.
Joel 2:13 “So, rend your hearts and not your garments; return to the Lord your God...”
Job 17:9 “The righteous will hold to his way, and he who has clean hands will be stronger and stronger.”
Psalm 24:4-5 “He who has clean hands and a pure heart and has not lifted his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully, will receive blessing from the Lord.”
2 Samuel 22:21 “The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness and according to the cleanness of my hands.”
Don’t ever get the idea from anyone that all you do even in sincerity is of God and will be rewarded. Those who are carnally minded and have built their lives on the errors of the day will have it all stripped away – forever.
Many people are storing up a pile of rotten, dead works in their lives. It actually goes frighteningly further “Being carnally minded makes you an enemy of God!” (Romans 8:6-8)
For the active believer caught up in glorious truth – great glory awaits. Even nature itself is stirring ahead of the revealing of the saints!
When you are on the right path, you will have an inner witness and peace will be your end.
This is a mix of a cheetah picture, a lion and a baobab tree. I took the the pictures in Botswana some years ago.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
