|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.|

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 482: August 13th 2019
Stop in your tracks!
These are words of life!
Stop – take stock! Take heed. Check yourself, examine your faith. Are you a Christian? Are you standing solidly and securely with our Lord in these days of shaking? Or are you blindly following the masses and the opinions of man and the traditions and culture of society?
John 11:25 “I am the resurrection and the life whoever believes in Me shall never die.”
“You will never die.” What an incredible statement!
Yes “You will never die.” But – “You will be changed.” (1 Corinthians 15:51) And “You will be like Him.” (1 John 3:2) What a difference that makes!
The implications of never dying are far above all we can even imagine with our own intellect. Do you know that it is above your ability to even imagine the glory of what lies ahead for true believers? (1 Corinthians 2:9)
We will not all be the same in the resurrection. We will, in terms of foundation, but what each one has built on the foundation of salvation will vary as the stars in brightness.
There are some very sobering facts about what lies ahead in resurrection for believers.
“God will judge the secrets of men. Every man’s work will be manifest”. (Romans 2:16) “God will bring every secret, hidden deed into judgement.” (Ecclesiastes 12:14)
Everything will be manifest, even our secret thoughts, then will come great reward and the new super-clean, super righteous you – forever!
Time is running out. We will all stand before the Lord in judgement for reward, or loss of reward. (2 John 1:8, 1 Corinthians 3:12-15, 2 Corinthians 5:10) The Bible also warns of “No one taking your crown.” (Revelation 3:11)
You can lose your potential reward now, by giving in the devil, but not once it has been issued in heaven. (Colossians 3:23-24, Hebrews 10:35)
Please get your head around the wonderful fact – “Your reward will never fade!” (1 Peter 5:4 Matthew 6:20)
I know I have spoken a lot about these things of late, but it is for a very powerful reason. You are on the doorstep of your eternal state! You can’t change it once done. You can change things now!
Peter said, “I will not cease to put you in remembrance of these things, though you know them.” (2 Peter 1:12)
Some personal testimony:
I’m always cautious of personal testimony, because pride sneaks in. So, I share this with you cautiously!
Many years ago I realised that the sin issue begins in the thought realm and then through to actions. To my amazement I discovered that it was not very difficult to control thoughts. In fact I can show you how now:
Cast down imaginations that exalt against God (without argument or reasoning) (2 Corinthians 10:5) do it whenever needed. Replace those thoughts with godly thoughts and do it whenever needed. (Philippians 4:8) Pretty soon clean thoughts become habitual.
Clean thoughts lead to clean hands. That then extends to your whole life.
Of course it all needs to be done with determination and prayer.
Psalm 18:20 “The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands, He has recompensed me.”
1 Corinthians 9:25 “I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.”
When you stand before the Lord, you will not be able to blame those that influenced you the wrong way. You are guilty for your own thoughts and actions.
Today, I can safely say that my life’s passion is to walk in holiness with our Lord, to know Him more and the power of the coming age.
These issues are for all time, but the Bible stresses them with greater urgency and importance as the end-time battle for the mind and the hearts of the believers goes into high gear. As the end of the age nears, these things are all magnified greatly.
This is the time when so many of these things are being thrust into frontline battle, through the media, the entertainment world and multitudes of invisible evil spirits.
Revelation 12:12 “Rejoice O heavens and you who dwell in them, but woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”
You must know your enemy. You must how he works, to be victorious over him. Satan operates through the world, the flesh-nature and the demonic.
You can’t separate the world and man’s flesh or self-nature. They are inextricably linked.
People always say, “Go to the root of the problem.” They are right. But when you get to the root of self and the world, there sits the devil, and you are stumped!
The flesh or sin-nature is drawn to the world-system. The command of God to us as believers is not to try and conquer them, but to die to them. That is the way to victory! (Galatians 2:20)
So, with these things in mind, we do not have much time left. Time for the church may well run out on The Feast of Trumpets this year. That’s the end of September. (Note I said “may”) Either way time is short to change your Christian act!
Comfort My people or kill My people! (Isaiah 40:1)
Israel is stirring, with many Jews coming to spiritual life now ahead of the tribulation. It’s in the air!
On this subject, here’s a thought to think: If God is finished with Israel as all those in replacement theology claim (and a growing number of others), that means the church goes through the tribulation and remains God’s agents of work and evangelism in the tribulation.
So what do you then do with the hundreds of verses showing that Israel is God’s chief agent in the tribulation. What do you do with all the verses about the importance of Jerusalem, a coming temple and more? Why would there have needed to be a return to the land?
The answer (for them) is, just change those verses and insert the church where you see Israel! Yet the Bible itself forbids changing even one word of the Bible!
So, you just get rid of the Jews with a fancy theology and spread it around. The churches of replacement theology do that systematically in their “respectable” neat suits.
If the church goes through the tribulation, Israel’s only function would be to disappear as a prophetic entity and become part of the church.
If God is finished with the Israel, His word can’t be trusted! Guess who is the author of that?
True Christians are the greatest friends the Jews have. Are you a friend of God’s work in this regard?
If the objective of Satan was to get rid of the Jews because out of them would come the Messiah and His church, why then does this eternal hatred still continue, now that Messiah has already been? What purpose would the Jews have to deserve being Satan’s enemy number one?
It’s simply because God has not finished with Israel! We ought to take the gospel to the Jew first and to make them jealous. We ought to stand with them and let them see that their Messiah is our Messiah too. We ought to present to them the good news of their coming salvation.
False teachers and prophets have one major characteristic. Their failed doctrine produces discouragement. They are the discouragers of the people. They encourage the lack of watchfulness and awareness.
The shining sign: (Daniel 12:3)
Isaiah 11:12 “He will set up a banner for the nations...”
We will all be displayed and known forever by the brightness of our eternal reward state. (1 Corinthians 15:41) We will be revealed without sin.
If all is to be manifest and all revealed, to whom will we be revealed in our full perfect glory?
It will be to all the family of God who know us, including those of our own personal family. We will be revealed to all believers of all ages. Abraham, Moses, David, Paul, the prophets, and all who are in heaven. The real, deep, inner you, fixed, changed and glorified will be on God’s banner for all in the universe to see and know.
All the devils, demons, fallen angels, witches, Jezebels and the entire unsaved world will see us in our complete full, rewarded, glorified state. All who have been cruel to animals and intentionally harmed the environment, will see us. They will see us with great trepidation from the wrong side of the impassable gulf!
All of creation will see us, as full completed loving true tree-huggers. All animals will see us fully revealed in shining, warm, friendly glory. (Romans 8:19)
The shocking truth:
There is so much glory that lies ahead, too much to comprehend, but what if the very basic foundational presupposition of what a Christian is, is wrong?
What constitutes a true Christian? It is not one who claims to be so. It is one who claims to be so, which is seen in his obedience to the Lord and His word.
It is one who has spiritual authority.
Obedience to our Lord also means disobedience to the word of Satan operating in the world and sin-nature of man. Disobedience to the world only needs to manifest when in direct contradiction of the word of God.
Many people say that they are believers. A true believer is one who obeys the Lord!
Obedience is pro-active and not just an academic belief. A powerful example affecting billions of people is seen particularly in the rural areas of the world’s nations. It is clearly evident in Africa. Out in the rural communities witchcraft is often predominant.
Many of these people believe in Jesus and believe that they are Christians, but they will not forsake their witchcraft beliefs and practices as well. They want both!
►Witchcraft plus Christianity = a curse!
Wherever you see a prominence of poverty in a community, you can be sure curses are at work.
Modern Christianity has sold its soul to the flaky church. They have sold their soul to deceived and ignorant teachers, and sold their soul to the opinions of modern man. For them to break free is like moving a mountain! Yes it can be done in faith, but why make your life difficult for yourself?
Many Christians only want the shallow, superficial things of God, because they won’t break with the world and its influences. That is one of the curses of today.
How difficult it is to obey our Lord when you have the modern world’s low view of Him. Vision of the true, high and exalted God, full of authority and glory, must cause you to fall down as dead before Him. All our arguments and reasoning’s must fade away in the light of His glory.
The more we live in His glory, the less we live for self, the world and its fancy reasonings.
Don’t trivialise your eternal potential and value. Don’t underestimate your importance.
These things should be a wake-up call to you!
►The way to know God is not intellectually or academically. It is in obedience to Him. Only the obedient know Him! Others are the great pretenders! Disobedience to God is replaces His wisdom with human reasoning, and pride.
Even true worship is lost and meaningless when there is no obedience.
Eve fell into the trap of reasoning rather than obedience. Your own human reasoning can easily become a stronghold of the devil, multiplying and expanding its rebellion as it goes.
Obedience to our Lord goes hand in hand with a number of synonymous doctrines. Brokenness is one of them.
The doctrine and experience of brokenness is so important in these days. It is a precursor to walking in obedience to our Lord. We need to be broken to the power of sin in us.
In many ways brokenness is like a baptism. Baptism is a type of death, burial and resurrection. This baptism of brokenness breaks open the outer-shell of man releasing the Spirit of God within, in a wonderful undefiled manner.
The unbroken cannot release the life of God effectively. On top of this, the unbroken are often still full of internal problems and tend to be distant and unapproachable.
►Brokenness releases light and the glorious aroma of the perfume that is contained in the alabaster box! (Mark 14:3) It is this perfume of God that also speaks of and even spreads holiness.
Before anyone can work for our Lord he must be broken by the authority of God. We are then stripped of our rights and self-effort and we encounter and obey His glorious authority. Then we will see sin as He does, and undergo a drastic change. We will see the rebellion of man’s heart.
Salvation under the microscope:
To be saved you must be 100% perfect and holy in every respect. All religion, including Christian religiosity, tries to make you good and right with God. Go and study they say, do this and don’t do that, try and try again.
Then along comes Jimmy the idiot, and some pastor in a beautiful shirt says, you need to be born-again, it’s as simple as ABC. So Jimmy gets saved and viola – he is no more an idiot! Now, he is perfect! But that perfection is on the inside. Now, he moves on and grows and matures in his faith, and the perfection in him, begins to work from the inside to his whole being. He correctly started with ABC and now everyone finds out that his name really is Jimmy Wiseman!
His friends are now amazed at his wisdom and they go to him for spiritual advice.
True, biblical spirituality is active, alive, and visible and can be encountered. Above all it results in growth, real growth in glory!
Only the new-birth kills you dead and re-births you – perfect. No religion can do that!
As your salvation matures, you must be growing in love and in hatred. Of course we don’t hate people themselves, but there is a great difference between hating people and the fruits – their sin!
Salvation today is far too soft on sin, which is why it is comfortably accommodated in so many churches.
Sin weakens you and specifically weakens your prayer. Your sin can also weaken others. If you are standing in the gap for others or praying for someone who needs your help, while you are in known unrepentant sin – you will not be heard. When one is weakened, so is the whole body, it knocks on!
Yes sin damages you, but have you thought of the extended damage it does to the whole body of Messiah?
The most important ingredient of your salvation is determined faith. It is almost blindly believing and lining up your life in obedience.
The verse below is totally shocking. To me it’s so simple and so profound.
Isaiah 46:10 “God declares the end from the beginning and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand.’”
What is this verse above really saying? It is saying: “Shut up news media. Shut up world”
Yet today the world and so many in the church have opted for the ways of the world instead. You tell me, is this verse below an incredibly accurate description of today’s world?
Isaiah 3:5 “The people will be oppressed, everyone by another and everyone by his neighbour. The child will be insolent towards the elder, and the base towards the honourable.”
Armour for today:
The biblical armour of God is closely related to the gifts of the Spirit. The two are essentials in these troubled end-times.
The Bible likens the armour of God to that of a soldier.
Ephesians 6:14-18 “Stand, having girded your waist with the truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness , and shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer in the Spirit...”
Here is a list of the various gifts of the Spirit:
Prophecy, serving, teaching, exhortation. Leadership, mercy. Word of wisdom, word of knowledge, special faith. Healings, miracles, discernment of spirits, tongues, interpretation of tongues. (Romans 12:6-8 1 Corinthians 12: 8-10)
So if we put the armour and the gifts together, we are well equipped for these end-times. We are a formidable foe to the enemy! But Satan has been successful in neutralising much of the church by keeping certain of these items away through false teaching!
It’s interesting to me that the churches that are falling away are those who have rejected much of these things of the Spirit, and those that are and will still stand strong are those who receive and practice the above.
The test of error:
Does the presenter have a track record of truth? Does it harmonise with all scripture. It must not be of private interpretation? Does it come to pass if it is predictive? Does it glorify and exalt our Lord? Does it contain legalistic bondage? Does it bear witness within? It must in no way cause hero worship of the presenter? Does it contain God’s complete plan for Israel?
Philippians 3:14 “I press towards the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Messiah.”
You must stop in your tracks and note the focus of your life. Do you look more and more at the unseen than at the seen things of the world? The more you focus on what you can’t see the brighter you will be! (2 Corinthians 4:18)
I took the picture of the black rhino in the Umfolozi Game Reserve and combined it with a giant baobab tree at sunset.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
