This verse, below was given to me by our Lord in December last year to give to you as the crowning verse for 2020. This was just before the corona-virus became a world pandemic:
The heading is, “Babylon humiliated.” End-time Babylon is the modern world system:
Isaiah 47:10-11 “You have trusted in your wickedness. You have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you; You have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one besides me.’ Therefore evil shall come upon you and you shall not know from where it arises, and trouble shall fall upon you. You will not be able to put it off, and desolation shall come upon you suddenly.”
Romans 14:11 “For it is written, as I live says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me and every tongue shall confess to God.”
Psalm 86:9 “All nations who you have made, shall come and worship before you, O lord and glorify Your name.”
Psalm 72:11 “Yes, all kings shall fall down before Him, all nations shall serve Him.”
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.
31st July 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Transforming light, life and power:
How do you know that you are solidly in the Lord’s kingdom, saved and growing in Him? What is you measure of salvation and victory?
It really is all about your transformation and it’s working from inside your heart to the outside. Do you have a growing love for holiness or do you still secretly love evil?
So much in the world is falling apart and creating a nightmare of stress and strain.
Growth in the Lord encompasses standing securely, in victory, in times of troubled waters.
A deathly, dark, demonic deception has descended upon the world, painting its beauty with an unholy ugliness.
The raging nights are thick with sick! Even the stars seem sterile and twinkle-less, hiding behind wafts of mysterious mist as we await the great twinkling-eye signal in the clouds.
This is actually the calm before the storm, the storm before the eternal calm. Yes the storm is calm compared to what’s coming and very soon. In fact comparatively, the world is now a teddy bears’ pick nick – a Mickey Mouse party.
Sounds of sirens reverberate, but are gutted and defunded. Their terror has been stolen from them by the terror of insurrection, revolt, mutiny and anarchy.
Romans 13:3 Rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authorities? Do what is good and you will have praise from them...But if you do evil, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain, for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practises evil.”
The cops are to be a terror to evildoers. If not the terrible reversal takes place and the evildoers become the terror to the cops and all civilised society!
The incidents of insurrection are growing, worldwide. The numbers are growing too. Historically, God acts when many people are affected and influenced by an evil work.
There is no safety in the numbers of rebels. There is only real safety in truth, holiness and righteousness.
Like our Lord in hell as a victor, before His resurrection, so we await our resurrection in a world turned to hell on earth.
Why is the champion of love, the God of all grace and mercy hated so much these days?
There is “another Jesus” who is not hated by the world. He has no cross and no Spirit! (2 Corinthians 11:4)
John 7:7 “The world hates Me because I testify that its works are evil.”
John 15:18 “If the world hates you, know that it hated Me before it hated you.”
Psalm 97:10-11 “You who love the Lord, hate evil! He preserves the soul of His saints; He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked. Light is sown for the righteous...”
The modern materialistically orientated church teaches you to “find your life in the world.” (Luke 17:33) They teach you to accept all the things that Satan offered our Lord, and he rejected.
►But, there is great safety in and amongst the ministers of the gospel that are close to our Lord. Those who know Him well, and walk with Him are safe and secure. Their light shines in the dark.
As the world prepares for its new world ruler, soon to emerge, know that there are many that you cannot trust anymore. Politicians, billionaires, businessmen, medical men, media, scientific experts and many worldly religious leaders are all tools of the devil in these days.
The one thing you absolutely cannot do at all these days is trust the media. They are driven by a demon monkey on their backs.
The materialistic orientated churches and all the Spirit-less churches are mostly devoid of any end-time understanding. For that reason alone, you need to be careful of them. It’s also no coincidence that they avoid anything on Israel, and even come against God’s plans for Israel.
►Love for the world of necessity means rejection of Israel! The reason is because Israel is God’s chosen “weapon” to destroy the world.” People may not know that, but spirits do!
God’s light must shine by His Spirit to offer real insight into all things related to Israel.
There are tragic effects of coming against Israel: You will be blinded to the truth, made deaf, have your heart hardened, receive a voice of confusion, and be distressed. You will have your neck under God’s knee and laughed at and scoffed at by God and be broken by Him. (There are verses for all of those things)
It’s no good just having a collection of verses in front of you. You need the light of God to receive His sight and insight, especially today. This is the way of godly metamorphosis.
Only the resurrection power of God through the work of the cross produces godly light and sight which is revelatory and transforming. There is a deceptive light as well, born in pride. Dark light is emitted from the absence of the cross and the Spirit of God.
Lucifer means “light bringer” but his light is dark light. Dark light blinds. “Be careful that the light in you is not darkness.” (Luke 11:35)
Job 18:5 “The light of the wicked indeed goes out, and the flame of his fire does not shine.”
John 9:4 “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.”
1 Corinthians 2:7 “We speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory.”
Things today are headed for a climax. Can you see it?
The end of the new world order is a world built and formed by Satan and with the fruits of Satan: Killing, stealing, destroying and lying. The end of God’s new world – the Millennium is a world built on righteousness, peace, holiness and all things glorious.
►If the world is going to simply recover from the pandemic, which many are hoping for and even some Christians are praying for, and the riots will just go away, and the locust plagues will just disappear, and everyone can get back to their normal life of murdering the unborn, homosexuality and other sin, then that would obviously mean that the rapture / tribulation start is a long way off.
That would mean that “All things are going to continue as they have done.” (2 Peter 3:4)
No, world, your day is done, your cake is cooked, your song is sung!
Jeremiah 50:23 “How the hammer of the whole earth (Babylon / end time world) has been cut apart and broken! How Babylon has become a desolation among the nations!”
You have nothing to lose by surrendering to our Lord now, and everything to gain – for all glorious eternity!
Edition 495: November 11th 2019
The breaking dawn:
These are words of life!
This follows-on from the previous edition, “The setting sun,” in some respects. It is a stand-alone edition, but many of the principles and major messages continue the theme.
As with sunsets, the breaking dawn is a beautiful time. It has elements of glowing, gleaming, beaming, newness, freshness and cleanness. But you may miss the breaking dawn if you are asleep and trapped in the misery of the enduring dark night of the devil’s nightmares.
In a sense, the breaking dawn is also a metaphoric metamorphosis, like a butterfly, leaving behind the old, as all things become new.
There is a breaking dawn for the born-again, true church, for the false church, for Israel, and for the world, all of which I’ll deal with in this edition.
One thing about the setting sun and the breaking dawn is that you can’t stop them. They are coming, ready or not! There is an absolute permanence about them too, you can’t wind them back.
The dawn speaks of approaching light and all things new. But it also speaks of terrible, terrifying regret as the intensifying light of God exposes the deep darkness in the dead of the world’s night.
Unless you are stone dead to the things of God, you would be well aware of the absolute critical times we are in. Too bad that many have settled for the worsening world and have become acclimatised to it and at ease in it, and joined to its deadly ways.
Now is the time to know the truth, led by the Spirit, It is your armour and shield.
Godly spiritual knowledge, understanding and wisdom are all progressive, like a new dawn. We also see a downward progression of ungodly wisdom from the earthly (worldly), to the soulish, to the demonic. (James 3:15) Take good note of this!
As the emergency sirens scream all around the world, God is intensifying His provision for His people to stand securely against the onslaught.
Beware the false dawn:
In my flying days, many years ago, as a pilot, I was taught how to identify a false horizon in a hazy sky. If you trim your aircraft to a false horizon, you will end up being far from straight and level. Thick haze sometimes contains imbedded thunderstorms, which you can’t detect until too late. These situations can lead you to believe that all is okay, when you are actually about to hit trouble.
Likewise, we have false spiritual horizons, and spiritual haze full of storms. People think they are in the light, straight and level, with everything being okay, when in fact, they are on thin ice, and on the verge of hell!
Do not believe everything you see and hear, even from many pulpits and ministries. Do not compare yourselves amongst yourselves. Do test the spirits and do always embrace the cross. You can embrace a dead corpse in a mortuary, which is like clinging to the world, or you can embrace the life-giving cross of crucifixion, and resurrection.
The dawn for the true church:
This dawn speaks wonderfully of a deeply maturing church ready to be snatched out of darkness into His glorious light – forever. The rapture itself is most certainly a spectacular, dramatic dawn, from darkness to light.
Colossians 1:13 “He has delivered us from the power of darkness, and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of His love.”
John 12:36 “While you have light, believe in the light that you may become sons of the light.”
1 Peter 2:9 “You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvellous light.”
This dawn is exclusive. It is only for those who meet the conditions.
It is possible to walk in this new dawn even now, to an extent, by applying the resurrection power of the cross even now, but what a wonderful, glorious future hope we have too!
The dawn for the false church:
The dawn of deception is the hallmark of the counterfeit church.
The counterfeit church is the church that rejects the centrality of the cross of Calvary and its application. It is the church of “another Jesus.” It is measured by how well it fits in with the world. These churches are actually “enemies of the cross of Messiah.” They are not enemies of of our Lord, just the cross – which identifies them as counterfeits. (Philippians 3:18)
Be aware that God does have a limit to His grace. He is the God of many new chances, but be careful out there - there is a dead-end road of no return.
The word “denomination” means division. It is the exact opposite of the requirement of God for His church, which is unity based on Spirit-led truth. Truth is not divided.(1 Corinthians 1:10, Ephesians 4:11-13, John 17:23)
“How can a house divided against itself stand”, especially in the coming greatest ever storms and flood of deception? (Mark 3:25)
A divided church will not stand, even if it takes 2000 years to teeter and fall. We are seeing, right now, the final fall of much of the church. It must be so, because division has no power over the powers of darkness.
How did the church become so divided?
Jude 1:19 “These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit.”
That’s it. One very short, very simple verse which explains 2000 years of church division! – Amazing indeed! Isn’t it interesting that the divided denominational churches are in unity about one thing – The elimination of the baptism in the Spirit.
You can build all sorts of man-made institutions, full of great ideas, but outside of the fullness of the Spirit they are all man-made idols for destruction. Yes God has used many of them (sometimes) but do you think there will there be divisions (denominations) in eternity? Of course not!
The problem, especially today is that those outside of the fullness of the Spirit of God will only be partially led by the Spirit and in grave danger of being deceived. Great deception in the church is one of the biblical hallmarks of the time.
Let me add that if you reject the fullness of the Spirit of God in these days, you will become an enemy of the fullness of the Spirit and you will be led by man and the world, into the coming darkness. You can bet on that!
The dawn for Israel:
This dawn broke in 1948 as national independence was granted to Israel in one day. But that is just the forerunner of the monumental spiritual birth of Israel still to come. (Isaiah 66:8)
The prophetic dawn began in 1948. It became more visible in 1967, and is getting brighter all the time now as the world gets darker.
Here is a powerful rebuke to the proponents of replacement theology:
Isaiah 66:5 (The Lord vindicates Zion) “Hear the word of the Lord, you who tremble at His word: Your brethren who hated you, who cast you out for My name’s sake, said, ‘Let the Lord be glorified, that we may see your joy.’ But they shall be ashamed.”
Do you see it? These are the people coming against God’s call upon Israel. They “hated Israel” and wanted their own joy to be the big thing. Well, God says that they “will be ashamed.” It’s not very clever to come against God’s word and be led by Satan rather than God in these dangerous days!
Continuing with Isaiah 66:
Isaiah 66:6 (Note that number) “...The voice of the Lord was heard, who fully repays His enemies.”
The verse above is yet another in this short discourse coming against those of replacement theology and anti-Semitism.
Isaiah 66:7-13 Here we see Israel being born in a day, which has reference to her natural birth and with a double reference in application to her spiritual new birth. We then see Jerusalem rejoicing and finally, Jerusalem becomes the place of comfort for the Jews and Gentiles.
Isaiah 66:14-15 (The reign and indignation of God) “When you see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like grass. The hand of the Lord shall be known to His servants, and His indignation to His enemies. Behold, the Lord will comes with fire...to render His anger with fire and His rebuke with flames of fire.”
This speaks prophetically of the tribulation period, but yet again we see another sharp rebuke and warning of destruction to those of replacement theology etc.
I have said many times that you better sit up in terror when the Lord warns a number of times in one discourse about something.
- The Lord warns three times against replacement theology in this discourse above in Isaiah 66.
- The Lord warns three times in one chapter, against homosexuality (Romans 1:24-29)
- The Lord warns five times against replacement theology in the discourse of Romans 11.
- The Lord warns five times against deception in the end-time discourse on the Mount of Olives. (Matthew 24:4-26)
The dawn for Israel will take her into the tribulation period and finally out and into the new Millennium of great glory.
Isaiah 9:2 “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, upon them a light has shined.”
Isaiah 62:1-3 “For Zion’s sake I will not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a lamp that burns. The Gentiles shall see your (Israel) righteousness, and all kings your glory and you shall be called a new name. You shall also be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord...”
What an amazing turn of events! Israel is to become “brightness like a lamp” to the Gentiles! Note that “kings” – political leaders will come to Israel’s glory. Note that Israel shall be a “crown of glory” in the Lord’s hand. What drama this is!
Israel will soon be: The Lord’s battle axe, the messenger of salvation to the nations and world-leaders. She will be brightness to the Gentiles world. Israel will be the Lord’s “crown of glory.”
The dawn for the world:
It is the dawn of troubles like never seen before. (Matthew 24:21, Daniel 12:1, Jeremiah 30:7) It is the dawn of massive wars between the nations.
Ancient enemies of God, Israel and the church will attack. New, modern enemies will join in.
The dawn of deep, intensifying darkness is the lot for the world. It’s a progressive darkness that comes with the approach of Satan and the antichrist. It is a dawn of blindness. This is a terrible, eternal night full of wars, disasters, cataclysmic calamities, creature of the night – devils and demons.
Yes there is such a thing as dark light! “If the light in you is really darkness, how great is your darkness.” (Matthew 6:23)
“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who turn darkness into light and light into darkness.” (Isaiah 5:20)
The world’s brightest light is deep darkness. It’s a deadly spiritual darkness caused by God, the devil, demons and the world-system.
The unsaved of the world think that they’re okay and don’t need a saviour. They think they can save themselves. They think that their good works will be noticed by God.
The great deception of the day is: “I’m okay, I can do it. I have no need for a saviour with a cross.” “Give us Barabbas,” is the cry. (Luke 23:18) “Come down from the cross,” they say. (Mark 15:30) That is the cry from the heart of Satan and his mouthpiece, the mass-media.
By the way, the name “Bar Abbas” means “son of the father.” The first name of Barabbas is revealed in some original manuscripts but not all. It was “Jesus.” So your choice is Jesus, the son of the father, a common criminal with no cross, or Jesus the Son of God, the perfect One, who became sin for us on the cross!
The ways of the world are doomed. Its future is fire! It’s wise to come out from among them now!
Romans 13:12 “The night is far spent, the day is at hand, therefore let us cast off the works of darkness” and let us put on the armour of light.”
As the light gets dimmer, you can see less and less. Progressive darkness occurs because the “prince of darkness” (Ephesians 6:12) is drawing nearer and nearer. But tragically, the closer the world gets to Satan the more its people become blinded, and you can’t see even if you want to.
With the dawn of darkness and its accompanying blindness, comes growing great deception! And while this is all on the go things get brighter for the true believer!
This dawn of darkness, blindness and deception is accompanied with deep personal torment as seen in numerous verses in the Bible.
Jeremiah 10:10 “The Lord is the true God; He is the living God and the everlasting King. At His wrath, the earth will tremble and the nations will not be able to abide His indignation.”
Psalm 33:10-12 “The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; He makes the plans of the people of no effect. The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the plans of His heart to all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, and the people whom He has chosen as His inheritance.”
The verse above is a good one to send to the United Nations as a special gift!
Finally, the dawn will break as a new world comes about in the Millennium. but not before.
How to stay in the light:
There is a biblical formula for good, clean spiritual health and sight. It is “repent and believe”!
If your heart is right and full of humility before God, with all pride removed, He will draw and lead you into all truth. All the divisions and errors in the body of Messiah, every one of them, comes from people of personal pride, and those who have rejected the fullness of the Spirit.
The way to glory is the way of humility before our Lord, embracing the cross.
John 16:13-15 “When He the Spirit of truth has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will tell you things to come...He will take of mine and declare it to you.”
Note in the verse above that to be led into all truth, hearing the voice of God through the Spirit of God is required. People outside the fullness of the Spirit of God get their “leading” from man. You can tell by all the personal opinions, divisions, and the absence of the radical teaching of the cross.
Have you ever noticed that those of replacement theology hardly ever (some never) preach or teach on the cross! That should be a red light flashing, and bell ringing – stay away!
2 Peter 1:19 “We have the prophetic word made more sure, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts.”
Note in this beautiful verse above that it is the prophetic word itself that will lead you into intensifying light. It is a glorious light and it is required, therefore, take heed!
The morning star which arises in your heart is the realisation that Bible prophecy is the “most sure thing.” It can happen suddenly and knock you right off your perch as it did with me!
Do you have a bright star – the morning star, alive and shining in your heart?
Personally, I recall the day the morning star arose in my heart, back in the late 70s. It changed me dramatically, radically and suddenly! I know, because I freaked out some of my friends back then, because they only had a dark star in their hearts and they couldn’t see what I could see.
Some of your friends may think you’re strange already, but if you really want to entrench it in them, just let that morning star shine and shout!
Once this morning star has arisen in your heart, it remains there. It gets brighter. It keeps you in the light of God’s glorious word and ways. It is a sign of the approaching day.
The tree of life:
The ultimate tree of life was the cross of Calvary, but there is a similar life-producing tree in the Bible.
There is no dawn in the land of this tree! It’s light is the light of God – forever. (Revelation 21:23)
The tree of life may be symbolic or a metaphor, but don’t miss its incredible supernatural magnificence. The main symbolism of the tree of life is that it represents the supernatural life creating and sustaining power of God.
Revelation 2:7 “He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.”
Revelation 22:2 “In the middle of the street and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month, and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.”
This fruitful tree of life is mirrored in Ezekiel 47:12.
What we are told is that it is a key component of the eternal “Paradise of God!”
We are just given glimpses and hints of this wonderful thing to come. But even glimpses of eternity’s wonders should inspire and motivate you to take full advantage of the glory to come, even now.
1 John 2:8 “...The darkness is passing away and the true light is already shining.”
Philippians 2:15 “Become blameless and harmless children of God without fault in the midst of a cooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world.”
We as believers await this “true light.” It is already shed abroad in our hearts, but the full manifestation is coming soon. We are the triumphant!
Yes Lord – let your unshakable kingdom come – quickly – very quickly!
I took these pictures in the wilds of Namaqualand Desert during wild flower season.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
