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 496: November 19th 2019
The Glorious Church:
These are words of life!
Ephesians 5:26-27 “He will sanctify and cleanse the church, with the washing of the water by the word, that He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that it should be holy and without blemish.”
This edition should be an encouragement to all believers, but it will also be shock to many!
Your future as a born-again believer is glorious. It is bright and shining, splendid and triumphant. Of course the intensity of those things will vary greatly depending on your response to God’s call and plan for you now. But even the one who barely scrapes into heaven will be eternally glorious.
It is the unbeliever whose future will inglorious, despicably grim and gloomy!
Glory: Strong’s H3519 – “Kabowd.” Meanings: Glorious abundance, honour, splendour, riches, dignity, reputation, majesty, brightness.
2 Corinthians 3:18 “We all with unveiled face, beholding as with a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.”
The breakdown of who you are:
We must divide the word of truth as required by the Bible. We must divide between spirit, soul and body, as revealed in the two verses below:
Hebrews 4:12 “The word of God is living and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit and of joints and marrow (the body) and is the discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
1 Thessalonians 5:23 “May the God of peace sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit soul and body be preserved blameless at the coming of the Messiah.”
So, it is our spirit that is born-again as a perfect being, right with God in every way. Our soul (mind realm) has to be renewed daily and our body awaits a future full glorification into a new supernatural, eternal, incorruptible existence.
At the end of the day, we will be 100% perfect in all three areas – spirit, soul and body.
The wonderful thing about this is that unlike all religions, we have already been made perfect through the new-birth (in spirit) and that now works from the inside to the outside. All religions try to work the other way around, from the outside in. Because unsaved man is fallen and impure, in all areas, he simply can’t do it!
That is trying to be good and right in your own strength –it is the doomed way! The unsaved are in fact trying to make themselves right with wrong!
Only the holiness of God can destroy and get rid of sin. No man can live right outside of God’s grace.
Fallen man nourishes, pampers and feeds self – He is feeding Satan in him, the author of his own coming destruction.
So, if you have been truly saved for one day, and you get run over by a bus, you will immediately land in heaven to be with our Lord, because of the 100% perfection of your saved state. But it is far better not to get run over by a bus and spend some time working your salvation out.
That is what you will be eternally rewarded for. The believer’s rewards are over and above the foundation of salvation itself.
Note in our key, leading verse at the top, that our Lord will present to Himself a glorious church, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing! It will happen.
Note that we are being transformed “from glory to glory” That mean from imputed glory in our spirit-being to outworked glory and holiness.
You may think that’s impossible, but it is God by His Spirit who does this work in us.
Maturity in Him is our common goal.
When you see and understand that the glory of God is already in your heart, it gives you great encouragement, expectation and dependence on our Lord, His word, and His kingdom.
This is what drives us forward in this terrible world. It’s a lot more real than a daydream or false expectation. It’s the way to a perfect paradise, an Eden of great promise.
The glorious church in heaven:
Physical death or rapture is the great eliminator of all things old and the dawn of all things new. But there are some rather startling facts about the glorified believer in heaven.
Here are some of them:
Psalm 149: 4-9 “The Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation. Let the saints be joyful in glory...Let the high praises of God be in their mouth and a two edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishment on the peoples...To execute on them the written judgement – This honour have all His saints.”
1 Corinthians 6:2 “Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more the things that pertain to this life.”
Matthew 19:28 “Assuredly, I say to you, that in the regeneration, when the Son of Man sits on the throne of His glory, you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.”
2 Timothy 2:12 “If we endure, we shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He will also deny us.”
Revelation 3:21 “To Him who overcomes, I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.”
Do you see the gravity and seriousness of these things? The Bible does not give us all the details about them, but there are enough to blow your mind.
In theses verses above, believers are told that they will: be involved in some way in the ●judgement of the nations, ●the judgement of angels, ●the judgement of Israel, ●ruling and reigning with our Lord, and ●sharing His throne of glory!
There is of course much more, that will fit in with “ruling and reigning.”
The resurrected church will be involved in ruling and reigning with our Lord in the Millennium, but as I have mentioned many times before, there is life out there in the universe; and the Bible hints at our involvement in a universal reigning as well.
To me, this is all a most humbling thing to even imagine, but here it is in the Bible, and there are more verses on the subject. The point is - it’s time to be deadly serious about your salvation!
The world get’s hammered:
Jeremiah 50:23-24 “How the hammer of the whole earth has been cut apart and broken! How Babylon has become a desolation among the nations! I have laid a snare for you. You have indeed been trapped, O Babylon, and you were not aware. You have been found and caught, because you have contended with the Lord.”
“Babylon” in the verse above is a clear reference to end-time Babylon, which is a type of the whole world system and not the original city which was cursed to “never rise again”, after its destruction as revealed in Jeremiah 51:64, Isaiah 13:20-22 and others.
Numerous verses speak of the judgement and final destruction of Babylon the great, which has a religious arm and a socio-political arm. The judgement of the nations gets underway and runs through the tribulation period.
Revelation 6:16-17 “They (kings of the earth, great and rich men) said to the mountains and rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come and who is able to stand?’”
When you go to a funeral, people always presume that the departed one has gone to a better place in heaven. But the truth is: It is appointed for man to die once, then to face judgement.” (Hebrews 9:27) The judgement seat of Messiah is the judgement for eternal rewards, exclusively for believers.
The Great White Throne judgement is exclusively for unbelievers, which sees them cast into hell. This too is an eternal judgement.
Don’t mess with the things that will decide your eternal future.
What constitutes a glorious church?
In one simple little discourse, I’m presenting you now with the full ingredients that are required for a successful, Spirit filled and led church. Of course there is more, but what follows is the foundation.
Hebrews 6:1-2 reveals the seven-fold foundational “doctrine of Messiah. All the doctrines of the Bible find their place somewhere amongst these seven. They are:
●Maturing to perfection, ●Repentance from dead works, ●faith towards God, ●baptisms (plural), ● laying on of hands (gifts of Spirit), ●resurrection of the dead, (end times), ●eternal judgement. (Heaven and hell)
A church is to “fully preach” the word, which would include all of the above doctrines and their related doctrines. (Romans 15:19)
Part of the “fully preached” word and doctrine of Messiah includes the practice of and experience of the baptism in the Spirit. Note in the verse below that the gifts of the Spirit are for the church until the coming of the Lord. They have not ceased, as many Spirit-less, dead churches teach:
1 Corinthians 1:7 “Do not come short in any gift, eagerly waiting for the revelation of our Lord.”
A church must correctly apply the division between the truth of our position in Messiah, and the truth of cross-bearing and the hard sayings of discipleship. (Temporal truth.)
►A church must be the “pillar and foundation of truth.” (1Timothy 3:15)
►A church must keep the cross central, and the individual’s personal cross to take up daily.
►A church must have God’s plans for Israel uppermost in their theology and teaching.
You dare not trust any Bible teacher who is silent on Israel or a proponent of replacement theology. Beware of that satanic spirit. It will devour you further down the line as it becomes more spiritually charged. Flee them.
Beware the church that is demonically silent on the big moral issues of the day.
The true glorious church glows in the dark!
Revelation 19:8 “To her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.”
The glorious church and Israel:
These verses below, speak of Israel’s future. They have not been fulfilled yet.
Isaiah 60:3 “The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.”
Isaiah 62:3-4 “You (Zion) shall also be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord and a royal diadem in the hand of your God. You shall no longer be termed – forsaken...”
Isaiah 58:8 “Your (Israel’s) light shall break forth like the morning, your healing shall spring forth speedily, and your righteousness will go before you. The glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.”
Israel will awaken to the Lord in tempestuous times. It will be the time of the tribulation – Jacob’s trouble, or Daniel’s seventieth week. It will come. It will happen. It is for sure.
Psalm 50:1-3 “The Mighty One, God the Lord has spoken and called the earth from the rising of the sun to its going down. Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God will shine forth. Our God shall come and not keep silent. A fire shall devour before Him and it shall be very tempestuous all around Him.”
Yes it will be in terrible times, but God will do it and bring it all to pass. In fact in this time of great trouble there will be an “early rain” and a “latter rain” at the same time. The verse below has a double reference to spiritual rain, the rain of salvation.
Joel 2:23 “Be glad you children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God, for He has given you the former rain faithfully, and He will cause the rain to come down for you - the former rain and the latter rain in the first month.”
Isaiah 49:3 “He said to me, ‘you are My servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.’”
Jeremiah 51:20 “You (Israel) are My battle axe and weapons of war, for with you I will break the nations in pieces. With you I will destroy kingdoms.”
Yes the Lord will be glorified in Israel, but it won’t be plain sailing. God will use His battle-axe – Israel to destroy nations and kingdoms. I wonder what the churches of replacement theology think of this.
The church of man’s glory:
Today, there are many wonderful churches out there led by great men of God, with a heart after the deeper things of God. They are a living, shining, glorious light in the dark.
Tragically, there are many churches that have more in common with a local circus. There are many that are pure frauds led by experts of manipulation. There are many churches led by proud ego-freaks, thieves and apostate apostles.
It is always the new believer, the uninformed, or the ignorant that fall for the counterfeits leaders. The severity will fall on theses church leaders.
Deuteronomy 27:18 “Cursed is he who makes the blind to wander out of the way of God.”
Hero-worship and the approval of man is a deadly trap that many fall into regarding their teachers and leaders. (John 12:43, Galatians 1:10)
The true church is not simply the minister and the Christians. It is them plus Yeshua the Messiah in them and the fullness of the Spirit at work in them.
Denominationalism (division) is man’s best effort to build the church! This is why in many respects; they are dead empty shells, with the sound of the sea-shore inside rather the voice of God.
John 7:18 “He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but he who seeks the glory of the One who sent Him is true and no unrighteousness is in Him.”
What a powerful safety-net this verse above is!
John 5:44 “How can you believe who receive honour from one another and do not seek the honour that comes from the only God?”
Do not seek the glory of men and the approval of others. Don’t compare yourselves among yourselves. (1 Corinthians1:10) It is a strong tendency. Render honour to whom it is due, but do not seek it. If it finds you - well and good – stay humble!
Much of the church has forsaken the truth and replaced it with stinking error. They are no longer the “pillar and foundation of truth”. They are built by an imposter; they are led by wolves, and fed by the doomed.
The remnant church:
I will be sharing more on this soon, but for now, let’s just look briefly at some issues.
The Bible defines in many places the remnant of Israel. It is not “all Israel will be saved.” It is all of the remnant. The word itself means the remaining, left over group, and not the masses.
Likewise, there is a remnant within the church. It is this smaller group that stand apart from the compromised, superficial masses and much of the church which has progressively become entrenched in deep error today. This is the real church of glory, arrested by the word of God and enslaved to our glorious kingdom of liberty!
It’s a great comfort to know that there is a remnant church out there, amidst all the confusion.
You can, and must be part of the remnant. I’ll share more on this soon. It is very exciting.
The victorious church of God’s glory:
This unshakable kingdom is coming by war and judgement! Everything that can be shaken will be.
The kingdom and its King must be seen in the church.
If you want peace it will only come through righteousness first. (Romans 14:17) There is no peace for the wicked says the Bible.
We are now at the start of the end-time climax of the outpouring of good and evil. The wheat and the tares are springing to life under the same climatic conditions. It must be so.
Isaiah 40:5 “The glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
There is so much pure glory that lies ahead. We can’t even imagine it. And we are preparing for it now. Don’t let the darkness flood in and take away your reward.
Do not shy away from the desire of, or pursuit of eternal rewards. A good way to think of it is: Rewards will be given, not to boost your eternal ego, but because of the glory that you added to the kingdom of God. Seek His glory and you are safe.
2 John 1:8 “Look to yourselves that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward.”
Revelation 3:11 “Behold, I come quickly. Hold fast what you have that no one may take your crown.”
Hebrews 10:35 “Do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward.”
These verses above (and more like them) reveal the fact that it is possible to lose your rewards. Not only is it fine to seek rewards, we are to protect and preserve them, by faith even now. How do we lose them? By being a big idiot.
In these days, you must know our Lord well. You must know and love His word.
Truly influential people are those that know God and His word. They will be vindicated.
God has a great and wonderful eternal plan for all His people!
Satan’s ace is to get people to trust in themselves and act in their own strength. It is not good enough to have the truth. It must all go through the cross, which is where all ulterior motives, manipulation and the like are stripped away and the pure truth receives power.
The Christian (and the church) can only be defeated by Satan from within. If you let him in yourself, you have only yourself to blame. Our Lord said - “Satan has nothing in Me.”
Satan’s works ways and attacks have a time stamp on them. As they end, the glory of all glories shines brighter and brighter. We have a wonderful future, don’t get discouraged now. Don’t give up!
I took the background picture of lichen on a rock and the stralizia flower in my garden and merged them together.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
