Shabbat Shalom to all!
But first: The American vote: A vote for the Democrats is a vote to rebuild Babylon (which God destroyed) and a vote for the Republicans is a vote for a reprieve for the world, and for many kingdom of God principles.
Walking right in a crooked world:
Romans 12:3 “I say to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one the (a) measure of faith.”
The original word used for a ‘measure’ of faith is “Metron,” meaning a determined, measured -off extent.
This applies particularly well to teachers, watchmen and the like. They get given a “spear” and sceptre of authority and influence, which is limited.
But God can change the limit or measure depending on the obedience of the subject.
Many in ministry have no “metron” of God at all but only presumption. There ‘metron’ is manipulative, deceptive, which has no authority or ‘spear’ behind it at all.
As a teacher, you can become the “deceiver of the brethren” and nothing but a control freak if you’re not within your limit of authority.
Many in ministry have had a spiritual gift imparted to them through the laying on of hands. That is perfectly biblical, but as with all things true, be careful, there is a counterfeit too. Laying on of hands can transfer the spirit of the imparter.
The laying on of hands by a false teacher also lays on you false words of false authority. I once heard a prophetic anointing being given to a minister by another false minister, who said at the time of laying on of hands that the recipient would have massive influence and authority around the world. Shortly afterwards he was dead!
Don’t let anyone “lay hands on you suddenly”, which means too quickly without full discernment. It is your job to see to that.
You can receive a false anointing, or mantle of demons from the laying on of hands by a false teacher.
Following a false leader will lead you astray eventually. You must test the spirits. When you come into agreement with a false teacher you have opened a door that you will find very hard to close.
As the world has left the word and is experiencing the dramatic consequences, so the same is true for a section of the church, which has left the word. It has left the literal interpretation and Spirit-led application of the word – disaster has come to those churches.
Those churches then operate in a false ‘anointing’, with no ‘metron’ at all.
Don’t underestimate the power of going off into error. It can wreck you. You will not live right on wrong doctrine. It’s progression will destroy you spiritually.
The only unified, universal message of the unsaved is that sin is okay and the Bible is not.
When you affirm that some sin like homosexuality is a basic human right and then go honestly to the Bible, you will notice that never the twain shall meet! (And I’m not talking of the Moody Blues!) You have to throw out one or the other.
Have you noticed that we are seeing so much fake news today? These things are all spiritually charged and on course – the wrong course.
Trust in the media is declining fast. The world’s mega media empires have been uniting and merging. This has seen a dramatic escalation in unified misinformation and fake news. But most people eventually see the hidden agenda behind the mass media and reject it.
The mass media have shot themselves in the foot. You can’t hoodwink people forever, except the uneducated, fools and the possessed.
Tragically, the same is happening in many churches who have a message that just doesn’t fly anymore, and disillusioned people just give up.
The image below is your key to a successful Christian life, even in these times. It is the light of life (to the Jew and Gentile) represented in the menorah, the truth of God’s word (all of it), and the application of the cross.
►Here is a most important sign to stay safe in these dangerous days of deception: Who else shares and agrees with what you have been taught. There is always a group of mature, deeply spiritual, highly informed Spirit-led pastors, leaders, and teachers out there. They are your spiritual measuring rod. They are your safety net.
In these days of much resistance, perhaps the greatest opportunities to grow your faith in our Lord, loom large!
You can change your future now. When you get there, it’s a done deal, over and out - no going back! There will be tears of regret, gnashing of teeth or wonderful relief in eternal victory. You will be met with: “Well done good and faithful servant, or the terror of “depart from Me, I never knew you!”
“The fire will test each one work of what sort it is.” (1 Corinthians 3:13)
The battle is for your mind. Your mind is the great aggregator, sifter and decider of what you think say and do. But inside your mind is your own “holy of holies” That is your choice-centre. If the devil can get in there he will defeat you.
You must fill your heart and mind with the word.
Your mind is the doorway to your spirit – the ultimate target and goal of the devil.
What often angers me no end, is the presumption by the shallow prophets that they are hearing God for you. You must listen to them, as though they, in all their error and failed predictions, hear God speaking to them. They think that others don’t have ears to hear God. In reality God is speaking to some of them and telling them to get out of ministry.
It’s a very serious thing to lead someone astray.
Be careful when you say you speak for God! Of course there is nothing at all wrong with saying that you believe, God is saying this or that, or that you feel impressed by Him about this or that.
So much of “the Lord told me to tell you,” and “I had a dream” is pure garbage.
If you put all the rapture dreams everyone and his auntie is having these days into a big aggregator machine, the machine would explode, because they’re all so different, with different time lines, accompanied with “the Lord told me, its 100% true.” The machine would spit smoke and say, “sorry, no comprehendo”. So you take out the instruction manual and it says: “This machine does not work and will self destruct if fed lies.”
Deuteronomy 13:1-3 “If there arises among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams and he gives you a sign and a wonder ...and it is in error, you shall not listen to his words.”
Jeremiah 23:25-32 “I have heard what the prophets have said who prophecy lies in My name, saying, ‘I have dreamed, I have dreamed!’...Indeed they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart...I am against the prophets who steal My words from his neighbour. I am against the prophets who use their tongue and say, ‘The Lord says.’ I am against those who prophesy false dreams, and tell them and cause My people to err...I did not send them...”
Don’t throw the baby out with the whiskey. There are occasions – few of them, where dreams may have some relevance.
The jury is still out on Pastor Dana Coverstone’s dreams as their fulfilment still lies ahead. He most certainly does not come across as one looking for self-affirmation though.
Edition 509: February 18th 2020.
Beware the Key of David!
These are words of life!
The image above is of the “Cyrus Cylinder” unearthed in the ruins of Babylon. It contains the decree permitting freedom for the children of Israel to return to their land.
Isaiah 22:21-22 “...He shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and to the house of Judah. The key of the house of David I will lay on his shoulders; so he shall open and no one shall shut, and shall shut and no one shall open.”
Revelation 3:7 “...These things says He who is holy, He who is true, He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts and He who shuts and no one opens.”
The key of David unlocks and opens doors and locks doors that no one can open. Beware; what God slams shut and locks, is impossible to open!
This amazing key of David is in God’s hands, but as we see in the verses above, He gives it to those who meet specific conditions.
What’s the key of David all about?
If we look at the verse above in Isaiah, we see that the key relates to those who have a heart for God’s will, work with the Jews (Judah), and Jerusalem. Those who have, a relationship and attitude like that of a father, to the Israel and Jerusalem have God’s key of David.
It is the church at Philadelphia who are given this key. (Revelation 3:7)
This powerful key locks out all those who stand against God’s will for Israel, which includes the churches of replacement theology and all other enemies of God’s plans for Israel.
Now, let’s look at some amazing facts about the king of Persia – Cyrus and his situation, in type relating to President Trump of the USA.
We will see how accurately the key of David applies.
I must warn firstly that this is application of Bible verses. When we apply aspects of the Bible to modern places, names or things, we must never be too dogmatic and never take the application beyond the initial surface meaning.
There is often amazing prophetic insight, in type and application. The Spirit of God must lead you.
Cyrus has a few startling parallel applications, in type to President Trump. Much has already been written on the subject, but I want to delve a bit deeper – for your benefit.
►The name “Cyrus” in the Bible is Strong’s H3566. Meaning: “Posses the furnace.” This is most certainly a strange and insightful name-meaning as we will see.
It was Cyrus who ended the Babylonian captivity of the Jews, releasing them from that furnace of affliction, to go back to their land and to rebuild the temple. In a sense, Cyrus possessed the furnace and could have kept who he wanted in it, or release them from it.
Bear in mind that Babylon is a type of the world-system. Today, the nations of the world are trying to hold Israel back, unjustly condemning her at every turn. If Israel does not fulfil God’s plans, willingly or not, they will come into the furnace of affliction again.
So, anyone coming against God’s will and plan has done themselves the great disservice of slamming and locking their own doors shut. They will be responsible for Israel’s further suffering. They themselves will be locked into a furnace soon to come!
Anyone who is with God’s plans for Israel, has the doors open and no one can shut them. In this case President Trump possesses the furnace and is leading Israel away from it!
There is another frightening aspect to the one who “possesses the furnace”. It could well be an application to the furnace which is the atom bomb - the furnace of fiery war! These things are in the hands of President Trump. He has the nuclear key, or code, the key to the nuclear furnace!
Modern day Persia – Iran is also seeking the nuclear furnace, and wants to destroy Israel, which will soon lead to war.
Isaiah 48:10-11 (Headed – Israel refined for God’s glory.) “For My name’s sake, I will defer My anger, and for My praise, I will restrain it from you, so that I do not cut you off. Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction...I will not give My glory to another.”
Isaiah 45:1-4 (Headed: Cyrus, God’s instrument.) “Thus says the Lord to His anointed, to Cyrus whose right hand I have held, to subdue nations before him and loose the armour of kings. To open before him the double doors, so that the gates will not shut. I will go before you and make the crooked places straight...I will give you the treasures of darkness (oil &gas) and the hidden riches of the secret places, that you may know that I the Lord, who calls you by your name, am the God of Israel. For Jacob My servant’s sake, and Israel, My elect, I have even called you by your name. I have named you though you have not known Me.”
Isaiah 44:28 “He (God) says of Cyrus, He is My shepherd, and He shall perform all My pleasure, even saying to Jerusalem, ‘You shall be built,’ and to the temple, ‘Your foundation shall be laid.’”
Cyrus was called “Messiah” and “Shepherd”, and was called to “Perform My desire”.
Bear in mind that Cyrus was not a godly man, but God chose to use him. That’s His choice because He is God and we are not and He knows things we don’t!
At the end of the original Babylonian captivity, Cyrus issued a decree, freeing the Jews. We are now in the same situation, with President Trump freeing Israel in many ways to be independent of the dictates of the world, and to fulfil God’s plans.
The Cyrus Cylinder 539 BC:
The Cyrus decree is forever recorded on the Cyrus Cylinder.
The Cyrus decree also removed the worship of false gods like Marduk, the patron god of Babylon. Marduk means “sun god” and his star is called “Nibiru,” who was the organiser of the constellations of stars. Everything to do with Nibiru is cursed. (This should be familiar to many of you!)
What Cyrus did was fulfil God’s will, giving him the key to the double doors of prosperity and much more. What Cyrus did in a way fulfilled his own name. He possessed the furnace and could have made things much worse for the children of Israel, but he led then away from the furnace.
Tragically, we know that Israel will fall for the great antichrist deceiver, and will again go through another Holocaust, before finally being totally free from the furnace!
Cyrus, king of Persia, modern day Iran, in fact had the key of David which opened the double doors. Iran today is forever locked out, by the same key! Europe today is locked out of God’s full blessing by the same key!
Meaning of the name Donald Trump:
Interestingly the name “Donald” means “Ruler of the world.” (Look it up if you don’t believe me.)
His middle name is John. This name means “God is gracious.”
The name “Trump” means “drum” or in biblical terms, means “trumpet”. Other meanings include: “To get the better of.” One rendition of the name is “Triumph.”
There is a mathematical gematria calculation out there identifying Donald Trump as “a son of David.” I think that is interesting when combined with the other meanings, but I would not place much emphasis on that alone.
►I am in no way promoting or suggesting that anyone vote for this person or that. It’s your choice. I am simply pointing out the biblical types and applications involved.
The mountains have eyes, ears and a key!
The hills are alive with sound of God’s music!
The incredible, unique prophecy of Ezekiel 36 is strange but gloriously true. It is a prophecy from the mouth of God Himself to no man. It is a most startling affirmation and demonstration of the key of David at work, buried in the ground of the mountains of Israel!
What follows is a summary of the whole chapter, I’ve put together for you benefit.
In this amazing prophecy we see God prophesying to the mountains, the hills, the valley and rivers of Israel. The area God is speaking to is the heights and valleys known as Judah and Samaria as well as the Golan Heights. These areas are Palestinian occupied territories (West Bank).
As God speaks, the land consumes the words, devours, ingests and absorbs them, and grows and rises in strength, thriving, prospering and blooming.
“Mountains, here the word of the Lord,” says God!
These mountains of Israel are now pregnant with the word of the Lord. The trumpet of God’s prophetic word is now sounding deep inside the mountains. If you go there and put your ear to the ground and listen carefully, you will hear the trumpets. (Do it quickly otherwise men in white coats will come and take you away to the funny farm!)
In Ezekiel 36:7 God says that He has lifted up His hand against the nations that try to capture this part of Israel. He has made a formal oath, a promise and pledge that He shall bring shame on them. He will shut and lock those nations out of His presence forever.
The people of the nations, the talkers and slanderers (UN) took these areas as plunder for themselves and caused the nations to mock Israel. (Ezekiel 36:3) They took the land with whole-hearted joy and spiteful minds. (Ezekiel 36:5) The Lord is angered because the enemies have caused Israel to bear the shame of the nations. (Ezekiel 36:6)
“But, O mountains of Israel, you shall shoot forth your branches and yield fruit to My people Israel, for they (Jews) are about to come (home). For indeed I am for you, (land) you are about to be tilled and sown with all the house of Israel inhabiting the land. It will be better than at the beginning”. (Ezekiel 36:8-11)
But Israel defiled the land, therefore God poured out His fury upon them and scattered them. But God will restore them, not for their own sake, but for His holy names sake, which He will sanctify before the nations. (Ezekiel 36:12, 22-23)
God will sprinkle clean water on them and give them a new heart and put His Spirit in them. (Ezekiel 36:25)Then they will dwell in the land given to them by the fathers and they shall be God’s people. God will multiply the produce of the land. (Ezekiel 36:28-30)
“From the day that I cleanse you from your iniquities, I will also enable you to dwell in the cities and rebuild the ruins...This land has become like the Garden of Eden...Then all the nations left all around will know that I am the Lord.” (Ezekiel 36:35)
So, now, we have God’s will and plan spoken directly by Him to the mountains, hills and heights of Israel (Judah and Samaria). We have God’s word planted in the soil, so to speak.
But what is really planted in the soil of Israel is the key of David.
Nations, leaders, presidents, prime ministers, kings and others, do you see the truth in Ezekiel 36? Do you see that Israel is untouchable by you? Europe – Europa, goddess of the devil, do you see that your way for Israel, is totally doomed? Do you see that God’s way is the opposite of yours? You have locked yourselves out in shame!
Nations of the world, let me inform you that God’s prophetic trumpet, His key of David, His word for Israel, is alive, in those mountains, stirring, rousing, agitating, ready to perform the world’s most shocking acts. This great, powerful word has been buried in those mountains for over 2000 years. You have been warned!
By the way, immediately after Ezekiel 36 comes 37, 38 and 39. This shows the prophecy of Israel’s “dry bones” coming to life, and 38 and 39 is the great war of the world, Gog and Magog against Israel, and her ally, God, being the ultimate victors!
They just can’t see the golden key of David!
Anti-Israel nations of the world, the tragedy is that you can’t see the key of David. You have too much cow dung in your eyes, mouth and minds.
Malachi 2:2-3 (To corrupt priests) “If you will not hear and take to heart, to give glory to My name, says the Lord, I will curse your blessings...I will spread dung on your faces...”
Job 18:5-7 “The light of the wicked indeed goes out, and the flame of his fire does not shine...The steps of his strength are shortened, and his own counsel casts him down.” (The key locks them out)
Job 11:20 “The eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope – loss of life!”
Isaiah 44:18-20 “They do not know nor understand; for He has shut their eyes, so they cannot see, and their hearts so they cannot understand...They feed on ashes; a deceived heart has turned them aside; and they cannot deliver their soul, nor say, ‘is there a lie in my right hand?’”
Dear believer, do you have the great lie of the world in your hand, or the key of David? You had better check!
So, what about President Trump dividing the land of Israel?
Under the” Deal of the Century”, President Trump has given Israel the green light to annex the so-called occupied territories. Only a section east of East Jerusalem, outside of official Jerusalem, is earmarked for a Palestinian capital. All of Jerusalem is recognised as the eternal capital of Israel. Golan and others are returned to Israel. Israel keeps the Jordan valley and only certain areas become consolidated as new Palestinian land. Bear in mind that Israel was divided long ago by the British.
This “Deal of the Century” is null and void anyway, until ratified and agreed by all parties. What is going ahead is the annexation of so-called Palestinian land to Israel.
I would not call any of this dividing the land and city in defiance of God. Yes, I’m aware that there are a lot of teachers and preachers screaming that this peace deal is now the antichrist seven-year peace covenant. I say to them – hogwash!
I am well aware that things can change fast, but right now, President Trump has in his hands the key of David and not the key of the antichrist.
In the final analysis, the land and city will be divided, by the antichrist, but this is not it.
Those of Europe, most Arab nations and the Palestinians, trying to steal the land God gave to Israel; it’s just like stealing a car with a hidden tracking device inside. Not very clever!
The big take-away:
The key of David is a fatherly caring attitude to God’s will and plans for Israel, the Jews and Jerusalem. This unlocks doors of blessing that cannot be shut. Those on the other side are locked out by the same key and cannot get in.
Those believers, who have the key of David, will also be locked out of the tribulation period and will be made a “pillar in the temple of God” in the New Jerusalem. (Revelation 3:10-12)
You too can and must hold your own key of David.
The key of David unlocks much more than the blessing that come to those who bless Israel. Its glorious benefits open many other doors of great blessing and security for you in these unstable days, and lock out many attacks and curses of the enemy.

Shalom and grow in His Grace!
