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 501: December 24th 2019
The End and the Beginning:
These are words of life!
This edition is about breaking with the past and moving into all things new. For new things to begin, old things must die and come to an end. We can’t build upon old foundations.
Jeremiah 1:10 “See I have set you this day over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out and pull down, and destroy and to throw down, to build up and to plant.”
“Babylon the Great” is the biblical title for the end-time world.(Revelation 18:2) It consists of a religious aspect with its customs, an economic aspect, a social aspect, and an environmental aspect. All is revealed in end-time Babylon verses in Jeremiah, Isaiah, the Revelation and others.
Just as the original city was destroyed, so is end –time Babylon going to be destroyed soon. It is up to us to destroy as much of it as possible from our lives now.
As a believer it is always good to have a point of identification or a milestone that we can look back to as a major turning point or beginning of a new dimension in our spiritual lives. This is a time to set new radical goals, objectives and plans for our lives because time is running out fast.
“Blow the trumpet in Zion.” Blow the trumpets of victory in your own personal life!
As we approach the end of this year, sit back and take stock. Have you really moved forward with our Lord? Have you cleared out the obstacles in your path? Are you spiritually clean? Have you removed pagan and occult-founded traditions and customs? Have you thrown out your idols?
The world-system is a powerful anaesthetic, but it is a tranquiliser of its soon coming great terror, which it is about to wake up to!
Personally, I believe we are on the edge of glory! If so, when we cross the line, bear in mind that you can’t go back and change things that you should have.
How wise it is to pay the price and get your life lined up with God’s word now!
In this edition, I’m going to challenge you using some biblical material I’ve not used before, and some plain logic.
My position is not to bring anyone under condemnation but simply to present the truth and leave it in your hands.
The mixed up church of today:
The word “Babylon” means “mixture.” Mixture of right and wrong, sin and holiness, truth and error, pagan customs and true biblical customs, light and dark and more are the big issues.
Mixing the sacred and profane does not produce blessing.
One thing you can never do is mix heaven and hell!
Many traditions are fine, but when tradition is founded in the occult, and has many dubious activities associated with it, you need to steer clear.
The majority of today’s churches are filled with worldliness of all descriptions. Many of them talk the right talk but have no power. That is because they have sidelined the source of power – the cross.
Sin and idolatry always obscures the cross and nullifies its power in the individual.
The two main products of Babylon in the church today are Christmas and Easter.
The problem with Christmas:
Christmas is the time when the world cries for world-peace. But the world is about to be destroyed in judgement. Have a look at the most Christmas-quoted verse below and note what it really says:
Luke 2:14 (Amp) “Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace among men with whom He is well-pleased, men of good will and of His favour.”
World peace is not for those who love Santa; it is for those who are His.
There is no doubt that the traditions, of Christmas and Easter, the names also, come out of Babylonian pagan worship. I’m not getting into all of that now. It’s undisputed. – Look it up.
There is also no dispute that Babylonian paganism, Baal worship and idolatry, and much about Christmas and Easter are directly associated - Look it up. (Just type into Google: “Christmas, Baal worship.” You will be shocked.)
1 Kings 18:21 “Elijah came to all the people and said, How long will you falter between two opinions? If the Lord is God – follow Him, but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered not a word.”
Christian leaders that celebrate and promote Christmas, Easter and other Babylonian Catholic pagan customs, and say that they’re just using the pagan names, then use all the pagan items like the Christmas tree, gold and silver balls, which represent sun and moon worship, the Christmas and Easter ham instead of lamb and much more.
The idolatry of Christmas and Easter is so hard for Christians to forsake because their leaders won’t forsake them, and in fact they justify them.
Now let’s look at some shocking verses relating to all forms of idolatry:
- Mark 7:13 “You make the word of God of no effect through the traditions which you have handed down, and many such things you do.”
- Jonah 2:8 “Those who regard worthless idols, forsake their own mercy.”
- Psalm 115:8 (Idols) “Those who make them are like them, so is everyone who trusts in them.”
- 1 Corinthians 10:14 “Beloved, flee from idolatry.”
- 1 John 5:21 “Little children, keep yourselves from idols.”
- Ezekiel 14:3-5 “Son of man, these men have set up idols in their hearts, and put before them that which causes them to stumble into iniquity. Should I (Lord) let Myself be inquired of at all by them?
- Zechariah 13:2-4 “In that day says the Lord of hosts, I will cut off the names of the idols from the land and they shall no longer be remembered. I will also cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to depart from the land...Every prophet shall be ashamed of his vision when he prophesies and speaks to deceive.”
- Luke 6:46 “Why do you call me Lord, Lord and not do what I tell you?”
Matthew 5:19 “Whoever breaks one of these least commandments and teachers others so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches other so will be called greatest.”
God is a jealous God. Idolatry of any sort separates you from God. (Isaiah 59:2)
I have never heard one single reason or justification from any of the Christmas clergy and teachers that makes biblical sense – not one.
What is the end of Christmas and Easter? Do you think our Lord will celebrate His own so-called birthday on the 25th December in the Millennium and beyond? You have got to be stark raving mad!
Isaiah 46:10 “...I am God and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand.”
The secret of your spiritual, power and position in the eternal kingdom to come is set by your radical determination to follow our Lord in cross-bearing and consuming of the word of God now.
The curse of Christmas:
Few are aware that Christmas is the Catholic Christes Maesse or Christ Mass. This Mass perpetuates the continuing, repeating death sacrifice of our Lord and has nothing to do with a birth.
The Catholic clergy believe that the Eucharist’s transubstantiation at communion, sees the bread and wine, literally become the body and blood of Christ, and is not just symbolic. This of course means that Christ is forever on the cross always dying.
In fact, “merry Christmas,” in reality then means - merry Christ’s continuing death – Ho, ho, ho!
It’s interesting that the Bible says that our Lord died as a sacrifice “once and for all.” (Romans 6:10) Then He was raised from the dead. I wonder why the Catholics always have Christ still on a cross forever dying?
So, the Christ Mass is about a Jesus who is forever dying! That is "another Jesus" (2 Corinthians 11:4, Galatians 1:8)
The church’s influence on Israel:
Hanukkah is in the Bible and was therefore pure. (John 10:22) Hanukkah is a celebration of the cleansing of the temple from all pagan influences which had come in. Hanukkah is about the survival of a remnant of Jews. Hanukkah celebrates the very survival of the Jewish people in their land.
The central message of Hanukkah is against assimilation, and cleanliness from all paganism.
The Hanukkah menorah is a symbol of the light of God to the world and of dedication.
In total contrast, Christmas is full of paganism in the church. Some of the Christmas pagan traditions have filtered through into Hanukkah, but they will be destroyed.
The Catholic church re-characterised the early church by the removal of the God-ordained feasts and traditions and replaced them with Babylonian-founded pagan traditions intended amongst other things, to keep the Jews out of the church.
You become what you believe and you influence others accordingly. If you believe mixing truth and error is okay, you will become a messenger of mixture – neutralised, with no power. Anything to do with paganism defiles you.
Over time, the Jews picked up many of the evil customs of the nations that hosted them in the diaspora. Even some of the idolatrous practises of Baal worship in the form of Christmas has entered Hanukkah and other Hebraic customs.
Psalm 106:35-36 “They mingled with the Gentiles and learned their works; they served their idols, which became a snare to them.”
Deuteronomy 12:29-32 “When the Lord your God cuts off the nations which you go to dispossess, and you displace them and dwell in their land, take heed to yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed, and that you do not enquire after their gods, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their gods? I also will do likewise.’ You shall not worship the Lord your God in that way...Whatever I command you be careful to observe it. You shall not add to it nor take away.”
But in these end times, the Jews are going to be made spiritually clean and free from all paganism and all forms of idolatry.
Hosea 2:17 “I will take from her mouth (Israel), the names of all the Baal’s and they shall be remembered no more.”
Ezekiel 36:24-26 “I will take you from among the nations, gather you from all countries and bring you into your own land. Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you. I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.”
Isaiah 43:12 “I have declared and saved, I have proclaimed, and there was no foreign god among you; therefore you are My witnesses.”
Israel in the tribulation period will be spiritually clean, and that will cause God to use them as His witnesses. How many lessons there in that!
If Israel is going to be cleansed from all forms of idolatry when she becomes “My witnesses,” don’t you think the same should apply to the church now?
The Xmas clergy are in fact throwing stumbling blocks in the way of the Jews, rather than “making them jealous”. They are contributing to keeping the Jews out of their Babylonian flavoured churches.
The seven Feasts of the Lord will be observed in the Millennium. The two pagan-filled “Christian” traditions, the Christ Mass and Easter will not! Think about that for a while!
Why the insane anger?
People with worldly traditions embedded in their lifestyle take great offence at those traditions being attacked or even questioned by the truth.
There is a particular, terrible hatred that comes from these people. Their traditions and customs have become sacrosanct and so much a part of their very existence that they rise to kill all opposition, if only by word.
They sought to kill our Lord because He didn’t follow their traditions!
John 5:18 “The Jews sought all the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God.”
By the way, I have no problem with people who are not aware of these things celebrating Christmas. What I’m speaking of here is those that know these things and still ignore them.
Can you separate yourself in heart and soul from the spirit of Christmas and still go and have a family gathering and meal? Sure you can if you don’t want to rock any boats.
The powerful, holy church of today:
In a nutshell, the powerful church is the clean and holy church with Babylon (the world) fallen from its lofty position.
How do you know when you are advancing in the Lord? You simply do know if you are taking up your cross daily or not. You will know by the things of the world getting dimmer and the things of the kingdom getting brighter. You will know by just getting sick and tired of the world and its ways.
You will know by your inner rejoicing at your own growing and expanding holiness.
The major work of God in the Christian is holiness, which is separation from the world’s ways. The word “holy” means – “apart or separate.” It’s really a heart thing.
In the final truth of God’s light all will be revealed, which includes your significance in God’s kingdom. Were you determined to follow Him and pay the price, is the question!
Job 17:9 “The righteous will hold to his way, and he who has clean hands will be stronger and stronger.”
A teacher must use wisdom to warn and win. Another thing worth considering is that before your works stand the test for eternity, they must stand the test of fire! This fire is fair! God gives rewards, but also His fire to test them!
Eden smashed and restored:
“Babylon the Great,” – the end-time world-system includes new-age environmentalism. It’s all around us. The world complains about global warming, destruction of habitat, extinction of species and the like.
So much of the natural world has already been smashed up by fallen man, and is now the world’s new political agenda. But so much is a natural phenomenon of which man can do nothing.
So much of the natural world will be destroyed in the tribulation period, but it will make way for Eden restored – worldwide, wonderful, a wonderland soon to dawn.
Nature, environment and all biodiversity must also be cleansed. It has the scars of Adam’s sin upon it, even though God pronounced it “good” at creation.
The world is about to be shaken to its foundation, including the environment.
Joel 2:3 “A fire devours before them and a flame behind them burns. The land is like the Garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness.”
The “triumph” of Satan-led man is the creation of a desolate wilderness, soon to be totally destroyed in the tribulation period.
Isaiah 51:3 “The Lord will comfort Zion, He will comfort all her waste places; He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord. Joy and gladness will be found in it, thanksgiving and the voice of melody.”
Ezekiel 36:35 “So they will say, “This land that was desolate has become like the garden of Eden; and the waste, desolate and ruined cites are now fortified and inhabited.”
Job 39:8 “The range of the mountains is His pasture, and He searches after every green thing.”
A world with the living God removed has no awe and wonder to it. You awaken fully to the beauty of creation in the light of the Creator. Remove God and nature comes down to man’s level. It is then essentially dead and open to miss-use and abuse.
When you are alive to God you see and hear nature’s pain. You see it abused by cruelty and the godless world. You join nature in “groaning”! (Romans 8:22)
Even now under the curse on the earth, nature still contains much glory. God can be seen in His creation. He is not the creation, but can be found in it. (Romans 1:19-20, Revelation 21:27) And once the curse has been lifted – it will be even more magnificent.
These things may be a dream to most, but dream on – dear dream-child. Dream on peace-child, a new world of peace beyond imagination is coming soon.
At the fall of man the earth sprang forth with thorns – a sign of the curse running through to nature itself. At the cross, our Lord, the King of the Jews, became King of the curse, taking the curse on nature upon Himself, in the crown of thorns – the symbol of the curse. (Genesis 3:18)
The tribulation is nature’s death convulsions and birth pangs before its “new-birth” in the Millennium. The crown of thorns will soon manifest in perfect environment.
Those who are enemies of the cross of Messiah are in fact also enemies of the coming liberty and redemption of all nature. It is only the cross that removes the curse.
Isn’t it interesting: The world’s environmentalists hate us Christians, but it is us Christians who carry the cross of the curse’s destruction, which will really set the environment free!
We have the answers! Please read Romans 8:18-22
It’s all going to come to a climax soon. (No you didn’t read it – go back and read it!)
The world is trying to find peace and acceptance and never will because they are looking in the wrong place. They are looking for peace in what is condemned of God and has the curse flowing in it.
If you are in tune with God and His Spirit, you will have a deep identity with, and compassion for nature. You will be sensitive to the agony of creation and astounded by its marvels.
Proverbs 12:10 “A righteous man regards the life of his animals, but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.”
Do you know about the New Covenant? Sure you do. Do you know about the new covenant God will make with Israel? I hope you do. Do you know about the new covenant God will make with nature? – Few do!
Hosea 2:18 “In that day I will make a covenant for them, with the beasts of the field and with the birds of the air, and with the creeping things of the ground. Bow and sword of battle I will shatter from the earth, to make them lie down safely.”
Job 5:23 “You shall have a covenant with the stones of the field and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with you.”
Isaiah 11:6-9 “The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the young goat, the calf and the young lion together; and a little child shall lead them...The lion shall eat straw like an ox.”
The very purpose of all creation is to glorify God. Satan has hijacked it, but God’s ultimate new eternal, perfect world is coming soon on the wings of destruction of the old.
We are to love God’s creation because He does. Only the saved can see that and do it.
The glory of creation must be received alongside art, music and other things of civilized culture. It is part of the soul of creation.
Have you ever noticed that it is an awesome thing to see into the future! It is shattering, fearful, terrifying, humbling and wonderfully encouraging.
Psalm 119:30-32 “I have chosen the way of truth. Your judgements I have laid before me. I cling to Your testimonies, I will run in the way of Your word. For You shall enlarge my heart.”
Isaiah 48:3 “I have declared the former things from the beginning, they went forth from My mouth and I caused them to hear it. Suddenly, I did them and they came to pass.”
In the soon-to-come glorious eternal future we will all be free of all sin. We will be like Him. (1 John 3:2) We will be holy and pure. How wise it is to go that path now.
One early morning while strolling along in one of our game reserves, looking for photographic matter, I came across these happy, harmless lions. Happy and harmless because they had just had their morning feed on a wildebeest they had killed earlier.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
