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

The spread-rate of the coronavirus is starting to turn down as can be seen in this graph for the US. What adds more weight to it is the fact that this is a repeating pattern in many other places. Its early days, and it is still spreading, but it seems to have peaked.
- Some tribulation verses imply that people will carry on as normal with marrying, commerce and industry and the like. This is not a picture of lockdown!
- Gordon Brown calls on world leaders to form a “temporary” world government to resolve the medical and economic crisis.
- Now that Netanyahu is finally confirmed as the President of Israel for the next 18 months, expect some action against Palestinian aggression.
- Jews and Bible believing (evangelical) Christians are being blamed for Covid 19 by an article in The New York Times albeit indirectly.
- Two nights ago I was awakened suddenly at 2.30am by a loud sharp alarm bell of sorts going off. It was nothing I had heard before, or was from the area. It was so loud and vivid it shook me. I have had a similar experience before with a trumpet blast. I’m no dramatist with things like this. The sense I got in my spirit was one of urgency!

Shabbat Shalom to all!
When the pressure is on:
What do you really do in thought and action when the pressure is really on and all things begin to shake?
It’s like the good -old toothpaste tube law: When you squeeze it, what’s inside comes out. This is when you see what’s really in your heart! “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” (Matthew 12:34)
Out of the heart under strain do you hear the mouth speak, shout, screech, swear, stress out, or be silent? Is your thinking stained, strained and stretched by stress?
Pressure sharpens your focus! It can cause you to curse or cause incredible blessing, if you change your focus to the things of God. Yes, a virus can change your focus to victory.
Tests create endurance, or in some cases cause people to give up.
Today we have a multitude of spiritually superficial, shallow shepherds, blind as a bat and deaf as a doornail to the voice of God, and with the mouth of many parrots leading their blind flock.
A lot of what you believe is related to the spiritual input from your spiritual fathers are and who you hang around with and identify with. In this day, you need to make sure who your spiritual friends are! You need to forsake many, and gather new ones.
I would feel a lot safer learning from a hell-fire and brimstone preacher of the cross than the modern, be blessed, be prosperous, be happy, positive-only preachers.
To construct this modern positive-only gospel, you have to remove all the “hard sayings and severity of the gospel. Their gospel becomes a half-baked ear-tickling tickle.
Endurance produces character. This is why a lot of the modern church is so spineless.
Some churches, you dare not walk into. They need a big sign outside saying “Enter at your own risk” or better still, “Danger, do not enter”
James 1:3 “Know that the testing of your faith produces patience (Lit=endurance) “
When the pressure is on beware of the pressure to err! Many times pressure causes you to run away and take the easy, wide road with the multitudes. That’s when you fall into error and then fear. When you have decided to take the easy erroneous road, don’t think God will help you along.
Isaiah 30:28 “His breath is like an overflowing stream, which reaches up to the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of futility; and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err.”
If your heart is not right with God, why should He lead you into all truth? The verse above applies to the world, but the principle is universal.
We are seeing a massive rise in deceptive teachings particularly relating to Israel, to the pre-tribulation rapture and the tribulation period.
As God prepares to move in new ways with Israel, there will be alarming and dramatic signs. The thrilling sounds of the shofar are shattering the midnight sounds of silence over Jerusalem even right now. (Literally!) The alarm of awakening is sounding; the ancient walls of Jerusalem are vibrating and reverberating with the breath of the Lion of the tribe of Judah – arising ready to roar onto the stage!
This is the time to reach out to the Jews with the good news of salvation in their Jewish Messiah – our Messiah. This is the time to throw out and destroy the obstacles to them coming in to the kingdom, created by the church.
If God has finished with the Jews, as many teach, how do you explain the great regathering to the land? Do you think that is just God having fun, or that it’s just meaningless coincidence?
In this day you are in trouble if you do not know how to discern the voice of truth.
You cannot obey the voice of the Lord if you can’t hear the voice of the Lord. The voice of the letter of the word is not the voice of the Lord. It is dead letter and produces death, legalism and bondage. (2 Corinthians 3:6, Galatians 5:9)
These are very dangerous days, not so much because of any virus, but because required repentance is being ignored and the source of “truth” for the people is the devil’s deceivers – the media.
A good starting presumption is not to trust the mass-media. Regard it with automatic suspicion. Obviously I’m not talking about a hard news event, but all their “exalted” opinion pieces.
Isaiah 2:12 “The day of the Lord of hosts shall come upon everything proud and lofty, upon everything lifted up.”
What follows is some of the sermon or book titles of my own spiritual fathers. I cut my spiritual teeth on this lot, starting in the late 70s. Some of these great men of God would be scorned and rejected today. But their work stands with transforming power, for the few that find them.
These wonderful discipleship teachers of old, pulled the rug out from under you, condemned the hell out of you, and often times left you floored, in surrender to our Lord, in a manner that caused you to be so very thankful! I would trust my life with them!
My aim is to show that just in the titles alone, you can see that they are of another glorious world: (My library contains thousands more.)
Derek Prince: ●Fierce times are coming. ●I will shake all things – the nations, the church and Israel. ●Facing the last days without fear. ●Living in a world falling apart. ●Evil forces of the end times. ●The Spirit of Antichrist ●Disasters that are about to come upon the earth. ●Facing God’s judgment.
Watchman Nee: ●Not I but Christ. ●The messenger of the cross. ● A living sacrifice. ●The spirit of judgement. ●Salvation of the soul. ●Love not the world.
Charles Finney: ●How to be free from the world. ●Victory over the world.
AW Tozer: ●That incredible Christian. ●The divine conquest. Gems from Tozer.
Looking at the titles should give you an idea of the content. How many of these titles do you hear preached today? By the way I have ‘devoured’ these books, tapes and teachings and thousand more about eight times each. I have about 300,000 pages of hand written notes from them.
Be blessed as you prepare your heart mind and soul for the glorious appearing of our Lord – soon and very soon!
Edition 500: December 17th 2019
Wisdom for the world today:
These are words of life!
This is edition 500! Thank you Lord – We have come a long way!
This edition is about the current fast-moving ways of the world and the stable ways of the word, or alternatively, the clash between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of the world. (The menorah, which I use images of frequently, is a symbol of the Light of the world.)
It’s of great importance to know where we are in the great scheme of things, and to know exactly where the world-system is going. We must know all about the kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness at this time. Knowing these things gives us stability and purpose.
Globalism is arising, and global anarchy is on the march. There is a reason behind it all. In this edition, I will identify some of these issues on the go now and where they are heading and why.
With spiritual blindness comes the death of discernment and a deadly false sense of security, which is a huge death-trap particularly at this time as spiritual forces intensify their warfare.
The biblically informed and Spirit-led will go through temporary hardship, but they can never be totally enslaved.
The attack on the cross:
The cross of Calvary was and is the only great instrument of salvation. It is the great sin-eliminator and holiness generator.
The cross of Calvary is the source of real power – resurrection power! (Philippians 3:10)
Sin is an affront to the holiness of God. It is an affront and attack on the cross of Calvary. Sin nullifies this all-important work of the cross and its power in the believer.
The agenda of the evil one is to desensitise the Christian to sin. Satan’s agenda is to obscure and remove the cross, creating a cross-less world religion, acceptable to the blind, deceived masses.
The spiritually blind can’t see the hidden agenda of the god of this world, because they can’t see him. They can’t see that the world is a kingdom with the sin-laden character of its god, which is to kill, steal, destroy, deceive and lie. (That is the same as the character of the the fallen self-life.)
It is only the cross of Calvary that removes all sin. Nothing else does. Unsaved people, who are essentially good, are full of good sin.
Globalism or internationalism has got rid of God’s definition of sin, so that a new world order can come in that would be universally acceptable. Sin is part of the new world order, because it has rejected the definition of sin, and the work of the cross.
Sin in fact is the world’s happiness. Ours happiness is holiness!
The new world’s definition of sin is godly holiness! All that God defines as holy is now the world’s unhappy unholiness.
The new world’s definition of “holiness or godliness” is enslavement to the ideals of its god - the god of the world!
To see these things and to see the kingdoms in conflict, you must have spiritual eyes. If not you cannot see them.
“You must be born-again to even see the kingdom of God,” and the kingdom of the world. (John 3:3)
When you can’t see either kingdom, you are doomed and you can’t even see it.
The cross of Calvary, the new-birth and the knowledge of God, supplies ongoing power, victory and deliverance from the grip of Satan and his world of sin.
The cross has destroyed sin, but as we know sin sneaks up on us when we refuse to take up our own cross. The results of the cross obscured are always seen in the manifestation of sin.
“Sin shall not have dominion over you.” (Romans 6:14)
Defining the course of the world:
We are seeing the final efforts of Satan to deceive the whole world ahead of the tribulation period. There is a universal, consistent theme playing out simultaneously all around the world today. Very few are aware of it!
Old school, hard-line Marxist / Leninism and communism, would have little chance of making any headway in most nations today. But we are seeing most of the deadly principles and strategies of these old systems, simply change face and come in the back door, camouflaged as a new ideal socio-political system.
Communism is in effect ‘commonism’ or materialistic equality. The god of socialism is equality, which can only be brought in through massive control mechanisms of the state. Equality sounds good, but being controlled does not. It is control that the world will get in the name of equality.
The goal of socialism / communism is the same as that of the antichrist. It is to make you one with sin and to get the masses to worship him and the powers that be in the state.
The end game of the antichrist / Satan is to exalt himself as God and to receive worship. He will do it through his evil methods. He comes to kill steal and destroy. He is the father of lies and the deceiver of the whole world.
Satan enslaves the masses by force or by their wilful surrender to him, led by the evil puppet-master, the mass-media.
Today, socialism is coming in through the ballot box. In the soon-coming tribulation it will come in through the bullet box and the brutal box. Brute force will be the order of the day.
We are seeing a growing attack on all the biblical principles that produce a nation under God. As these principles are cast down, the door is open for a nation under Satan!
The verse below is the tragic outcome of man’s best efforts, led by his wicked god. This will fully manifest in the tribulation period, but we are on the way already.
Isaiah 10:13-14 “By the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom, for I am prudent. I have removed the boundaries of the people and have robbed their treasuries...My hand has found like a nest the riches of the people and as one gathers eggs that are left, I have gathered all the earth, and there was no one who moved his wing, nor opened his mouth, with even a peep.”
Note that resistance to this socialism is crushed.
The world’s wisdom:
The world is led by politicians and they in turn are led by the world of intellectuals.
The world of academics and intellectuals are in fact great deceivers. Their wisdom in most cases is hostile to God. It is the wisdom from below and not above. (Obviously, I’m not talking about general education, which has no moral or biblical aspects to it.)
James 3:15-17 “This wisdom does not come from above, but is earthly (worldly), sensual (soulish), demonic...but the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.”
Note the descending path of the wisdom from below!
Intelligence grown in the seedbed of rejection of God’s word makes your intellectualism pure, real stupidity!
The masses are easily fooled by the world’s wisdom, because they are of the same root, and have no spiritual defences or discernment. The world’s wisdom has never endured and will be short-lived!
The world’s wisdom has a deceptive authority to it. A little old learned, bespectacled, highly educated man, redefining marriage, for example, carries this automatic reverence and unwritten authority in the eyes of the masses. But he is a leading champion of fools.
Isaiah 29:14 “...The wisdom of the wise shall perish and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hidden.”
1 Corinthians 1:19 “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
Jeremiah 8:9 “The wise men are ashamed, behold, they have rejected the word of the Lord; so what wisdom do they have?”
Our Lord is preparing for Himself a bride, whom He will love forever. The antichrist is preparing his bride, whom he will rule with force and then kill. What a terrible tragedy for the unsaved to find that out – when it’s too late!
As the world descends and deteriorates fast, how important it is to: ●“Love not the world.” (1 John 2:15) And to: ● “Hate your life in the world.” (John 12:25) And: ●“Not to find your life in the world.” (Matthew 10:39)
There was a time not long ago when many nations were under God to some degree. They were morally great! The same is true for the church worldwide! Now the pulpit has been taken over by the pew and the results are evident.
Because something is accepted by the masses does not mean it is biblically or morally right.
Socialist political orders have no patriotism or love for country in their belief systems. The goal of socialism is command economics, state control and a new one-world government.
The masses become a defined entity, with an illegitimate, stolen authority, not emanating from God.
The failure of democracy is that it has no inherent truth. Its truth is what a majority says it is. It always changes according to the changing times.
Democracy did not vote the Bible out of society. So, who did? It was Satan masquerading as a political VIP, an academic intellectual.
Corrupted sin-filled minds are blinded, pliable and easy to corrupt further and subjugate to the will of the state, and the traditions of the world and the fallen church.
The only hope of the nations is the light of the true, Bible-believing church, and that will soon be gone in a flash! Deep darkness full of terror will descend after our “ascension”!
One absolute, universal, truth is that man cannot run his own life outside of God. He is about to find that out the hard way - the too-late way!
Man’s conscience, is very important in creating his world. His conscience decides what he deems to be acceptable. A seared conscience is immediately filled with Satan’s no-conscience. In fact most people today including many Christians have a seared conscience. Doom is just down the road.
The mass-media have moved beyond being pure news reporters, and are now opinion makers, propaganda dictators, and have become Satan’s collective organiser, planner and agent. They are leading the world into a new socialist dictatorship, which will turn out to be worse than that of Hitler, Stalin, Marx and other mob maniacs.
The equality big lie:
The communistic / socialistic principle of redistribution of wealth in the name of equality kills the goose that lays the egg. It kills initiative and incentive and makes everyone equal – broke! It also creates a world in which people become dependent upon government and lose their motivation for personal betterment.
Equality is unfair, because people are not equal. Some are born entrepreneurs, some are born brilliant whizz-kids, some are born creative, some have a high IQ and others not. Some have success built into their DNA and others not. God has made us all different. Some have delivered themselves over to curses, others to blessing.
Equality robs people of their true intrinsic value and makes them dumb, slaves of the state. Equal opportunity yes, but that’s a different thing.
The answer of course is the distribution of the knowledge of God into society. This creates a strong nation under God and allows for people to become what they are born to be.
The free market principle is not the rich get richer and the poor getting poorer. It is the rich get richer and the poor get richer. (With the exception of those under the curse of poverty, or those who want to stay enslaved to poverty.)
Yeshua said, “The poor you will have with you always.”
Internationalism, globalism and socialism (all linked) brings everyone down to the lowest common denominator under the spirit of Satan while remaining slaves to sin. God brings us up to the highest value and seats us in heavenly places, holy, righteous and pure.
Socialism violates the biblical law of sowing and reaping. The overall goal of socialism is control and domination, the very goals of Satan.
The new world and Israel:
When a church won’t touch eschatology, by default it won’t touch God’s plan for Israel and they become ministers of social justice, and see things through Palestinian eyes.
Satan’s plan is to destroy Israel. God’s plan is to restore Israel! Satan’s plan is to defeat the church. God’s plan is to manifest her as “more than a conqueror.”
Israel can’t assimilate into the world because of God’s call and plan for her. The same is true for the church! This is why we are to come out of, and die to the world!
The new world has no place for Israel, who will be God’s chief evangelists in the tribulation period. The new world has no place for the church now either, except for the cross-less church as a political entity to further the aims of a one-world religion and the new-world state.
So, Satan uses the church to get rid of and replace Israel, just like Hitler did, but without gas ovens. Replacement theology is the devil’s weapon of choice for the compromised church, against Israel.
By the way, if the church has replaced Israel then the whole world is the Promised Land and can easily be moulded and controlled by the god of the world.
God will use Israel’s military in a major way and will include nations allied with Israel.
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.”
Isaiah 60:8-10 (Gentiles bless Zion) “Who are these who fly like a cloud, and like doves to their roosts? Surely the coastlands shall wait for Me...The sons of the foreigners shall build you up your walls.”
The future of the world:
There are two “worlds”. The future of the ungodly new world order is total destruction and annihilation. The future of the new world order under God – the Millennium is pure glory!
Here is how we are to deal with the world now:
“The world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” (Galatians 6:14)
But hang on a minute, the cross led to resurrection. So is the world going to rise again? Yes and no, is the answer. It is going to be destroyed and will rise again in total newness of life, God’s pure and holy life. The new world will be on the far side of the cross! What a wonderful world that will be!
If the world has been crucified to me, it means that it is dead to me. In death it has all its evil stripped out. But crucifixion is only one side of the coin. Resurrection is the other. Interestingly, no human being can create resurrection, so all eco-efforts are ultimately doomed until the Millennium.
The world can try as it may to create a new world order of peace. It can use the free market system, democracy, theocracy, socialism, communism, liberation theology, capitalism, tyranny or anything it likes, but it can’t get rid of sin! It is forever doomed to be united with sin until its destruction.
We are not called to reform the sin-filled world, or to redefine sin. We are called to die to it and come out of it. Our world is not of this world. Our world is perfect and sin free. It is called “The Kingdom of God.”
Our kingdom only shines into the world in its separation from the world.
The Spirit of truth reveals God, glorifies Messiah and convicts of sin righteousness and judgement.
Political leaders that have forsaken the ways of God, are a very great danger to the masses, and especially to Christians and to Israel.
►Job 12:24-25 “He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, and makes them wander in a pathless wilderness. They grope in the dark without the light; he makes then stagger like a drunken man.”
►Psalm 94:20 “Shall the throne of iniquity, which devises evil by law, have fellowship with You?”
Think about this:
There was not one liberal lefty in the Lords army of workers, disciples and close followers! That should tell you something!
Voting for the left wing parties of the world today is voting for ultimate tyranny, command economics, and domination. Beware there are spirits at work in all these things and they will soon manifest!
We are to judge ourselves now so that we will not be judged or condemned with the world.
There is little difference in the rebellion of Lucifer, Adam and Eve, Babylon, and all the godless empires right up until today.
The ultimate secret, hidden, non-said goal and agenda of Satan is to create an unrestricted road of “freedom” all the way to hell.
The world today is fast approaching tribulation readiness!
The Christian was born equal under the sin of Adam. Through the new-birth we are born-again, equal in terms of foundation. But what we build on our foundation is as different as the stars!
The unbeliever is born into the sin of Adam and there he stays, blinded to kingdoms in conflict and forever imprisoned, dominated and controlled.
Knowing what’s going on gives you some degree of stability. You can rest in God’s truth, even while the world is going to hell in a hand-basket of its own making. You can be that pillar of stability and truth for others to lean on. (1Timothy 3:15)
With God’s answers, under your belt, you can be His own missionary, evangelist, and warning light to many. And let me tell you – they need you!
I took these pictures flying over the Cathedral Peak range in the Drakensberg Mountains. The inset picture is the Dragons Back, also from the air. (If you look carefully, just above the Bell you can see two other choppers.)
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
