Psalm 78:31-34 “The wrath of God came against them...in spite of this they still sinned, and did not believe in His wondrous works, therefore their day He consumed in futility and their years in fear. When He slew them, then they sought Him; and they turned and sought diligently for God.”

Shabbat Shalom to all!
Seeing is not believing!
Message to committed Christians: Your presence in your nation is its light.
Isaiah 14:12 “How you have fallen from heaven O Lucifer, son of the morning and how you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations.”
In the verse above we see that one of the major desires of Satan is to weaken the nations. If he can do that, he has little obstruction to his big plans of disruption and control.
Satan was originally called Lucifer, which means “light bearer,” before his fall.
The same principle works in believers. We are the light of the world (nations) but be careful out there, if we fall we effectively weaken the nation because our light goes out.
Bear in mind that light always pushes darkness into retreat. Darkness can never push back the light, unless the light is not really light but darkness! (Luke 11:35)
There’s an old song that speaks of the things of the world growing strangely dim in the presence of the glory of the Lord. That is so true, but it works in reverse too. The things of the world become bright when there is no real glory of God.
There are many things that may leave you still a Christian, but will put your light out or make it dim and partially hidden. In the haziness and obscurity of dim light, devils and demons run riot.
Some factors that darken your light are: ●False or presumed doctrinal light. ●That which is of the spirit of error and pride. ●All forms of replacement theology, anti-Semitism will put your light out. ●Worldliness and imbedded sin will obscure your light. ●Ignorance of the truth is a sure way to be blinded. ●Church or even national traditions and customs can be a light killer (Not all are so.) ●The opinions of man, the world, your peers, friends and sometimes family, can be a hindrance. ●All forms of pride extinguish your light. That is pride of race, face, place, grace and more.
It is the light of God that gives sight. All other lights give sight of the material world.
Do you see the things not seen by the eye? Can you hear the things the not heard by the ear? (1 Corinthians 2:9) You see, what you see with your natural eye is temporary It will soon be gone. (2 Corinthians 4:18) What you see is therefore deceptive because it’s only partly real.
The world has eyes that cannot see and ears that cannot hear! (Jeremiah 5:21, 6:10, Psalm 135:16) Seeing is not believing! Believing is seeing!
The world is lost because it has ears that cannot hear. It needs ears of the heart! The world has eyes that cannot see. It needs eyes of the heart to see the kingdom of God and true light. They want to see and hear according to the wickedness of their fallen heart and of the world.
Sin, righteousness and judgement is what you must see and hear. (John 16:8) Your eyes and ears then become sensitive to God and His word.
The Spirit of wisdom and revelation is needed but is only known by revelation. (Ephesians 1:17)
Luke 24:45 “He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the scriptures.”
The world has made gods of what it sees and hears. That’s all from the voice of the fallen light bearer – Satan himself. This is the reason the world is against Israel. It just can’t see the truth.
Satan is increasingly producing voices of chaos, antagonisms and troubles in this world. He thrives on anarchy – that’s his best weapon for gaining control of the masses. The world thinks it can see clearly enough to fix its problems! That’s just why the world is destined for doom!
To be free from the knowledge and will of God is to be a prisoner of the knowledge of the world and the propaganda and proper evil of it. That’s the way to be a slave of sin.
There is a new heaven and earth coming where righteousness dwells. (2 Peter 3:13)
There is a new Babylonian world coming where wickedness and destruction dwells!
Being in right standing (righteousness) with God, and His way is deeply, heavenly refreshing with sensitivity to our Lord and majestic King.
Righteousness: Strong’s G1343, “Dikaiosyne”. Meanings: Acceptable to God, integrity, virtue, purity, holiness, correct thinking.
There are few people on this earth who do not take counsel from somewhere or someone.
Don’t be reasoned into being wrong because the counsel of the masses thinks they are right. They are building their own tower of Babel again.
Psalm 1:1 “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path with sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful.”
As the counsel of the ungodly comes into your life, so the counsel of God goes out.
Psalm 5:9-10 “There is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is destruction; their throat is an open tomb; they flatter with their tongue. Pronounce them guilty, O God! Let them fall by their own counsels...”
Psalm 26:5-6 “I have hated the congregation of evildoers, and will not sit with the wicked. I will wash my hands in innocence...”
Psalm 119:104 “Through the counsel of Your word I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way. Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
Jeremiah 15:16-17 “I found Your words and I ate them, and Your word was to me the rejoicing and joy of my heart; for I am called by Your name. I did not sit in the assembly of the mockers, nor did I rejoice. I sat alone because of Your hand, for you have filled me with indignation.”
How to be led astray:
- Ignore the necessity of being Spirit-filled, led and taught, with His inner witness.
- Don‘t discern between those of the Spirit of truth and those of the spirit of error.
- Give yourself to false prophets and those with a history of failed predictions.
- Just be a lazy slob and blindly follow what you’ve been taught without question.
- Exalt and elevate preachers and teachers, giving their words unchecked authority.
- Don’t check out and study the scriptures yourself; don’t pray over your study.
- Maintain an attitude of know-it-all pride. Go along the wide road with everyone else.
- Exalt church tradition and customs above God and His word and ways.
It’s time to be ready and let your light shine. Things are about to happen suddenly.
Pray for your light to shine brightly continuously. Pray for your nation to be open to light.
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!
