This verse, below was given to me by our Lord in December last year to give to you as the crowning verse for 2020. This was just before the corona-virus became a world pandemic:
The heading is, “Babylon humiliated.” End-time Babylon is the modern world system:
Isaiah 47:10-11 “You have trusted in your wickedness. You have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you; You have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one besides me.’ Therefore evil shall come upon you and you shall not know from where it arises, and trouble shall fall upon you. You will not be able to put it off, and desolation shall come upon you suddenly.”
Romans 14:11 “For it is written, as I live says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me and every tongue shall confess to God.”
Psalm 86:9 “All nations who you have made, shall come and worship before you, O lord and glorify Your name.”
Psalm 72:11 “Yes, all kings shall fall down before Him, all nations shall serve Him.”
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose of this report is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah.
31st July 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Transforming light, life and power:
How do you know that you are solidly in the Lord’s kingdom, saved and growing in Him? What is you measure of salvation and victory?
It really is all about your transformation and it’s working from inside your heart to the outside. Do you have a growing love for holiness or do you still secretly love evil?
So much in the world is falling apart and creating a nightmare of stress and strain.
Growth in the Lord encompasses standing securely, in victory, in times of troubled waters.
A deathly, dark, demonic deception has descended upon the world, painting its beauty with an unholy ugliness.
The raging nights are thick with sick! Even the stars seem sterile and twinkle-less, hiding behind wafts of mysterious mist as we await the great twinkling-eye signal in the clouds.
This is actually the calm before the storm, the storm before the eternal calm. Yes the storm is calm compared to what’s coming and very soon. In fact comparatively, the world is now a teddy bears’ pick nick – a Mickey Mouse party.
Sounds of sirens reverberate, but are gutted and defunded. Their terror has been stolen from them by the terror of insurrection, revolt, mutiny and anarchy.
Romans 13:3 Rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authorities? Do what is good and you will have praise from them...But if you do evil, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain, for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practises evil.”
The cops are to be a terror to evildoers. If not the terrible reversal takes place and the evildoers become the terror to the cops and all civilised society!
The incidents of insurrection are growing, worldwide. The numbers are growing too. Historically, God acts when many people are affected and influenced by an evil work.
There is no safety in the numbers of rebels. There is only real safety in truth, holiness and righteousness.
Like our Lord in hell as a victor, before His resurrection, so we await our resurrection in a world turned to hell on earth.
Why is the champion of love, the God of all grace and mercy hated so much these days?
There is “another Jesus” who is not hated by the world. He has no cross and no Spirit! (2 Corinthians 11:4)
John 7:7 “The world hates Me because I testify that its works are evil.”
John 15:18 “If the world hates you, know that it hated Me before it hated you.”
Psalm 97:10-11 “You who love the Lord, hate evil! He preserves the soul of His saints; He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked. Light is sown for the righteous...”
The modern materialistically orientated church teaches you to “find your life in the world.” (Luke 17:33) They teach you to accept all the things that Satan offered our Lord, and he rejected.
►But, there is great safety in and amongst the ministers of the gospel that are close to our Lord. Those who know Him well, and walk with Him are safe and secure. Their light shines in the dark.
As the world prepares for its new world ruler, soon to emerge, know that there are many that you cannot trust anymore. Politicians, billionaires, businessmen, medical men, media, scientific experts and many worldly religious leaders are all tools of the devil in these days.
The one thing you absolutely cannot do at all these days is trust the media. They are driven by a demon monkey on their backs.
The materialistic orientated churches and all the Spirit-less churches are mostly devoid of any end-time understanding. For that reason alone, you need to be careful of them. It’s also no coincidence that they avoid anything on Israel, and even come against God’s plans for Israel.
►Love for the world of necessity means rejection of Israel! The reason is because Israel is God’s chosen “weapon” to destroy the world.” People may not know that, but spirits do!
God’s light must shine by His Spirit to offer real insight into all things related to Israel.
There are tragic effects of coming against Israel: You will be blinded to the truth, made deaf, have your heart hardened, receive a voice of confusion, and be distressed. You will have your neck under God’s knee and laughed at and scoffed at by God and be broken by Him. (There are verses for all of those things)
It’s no good just having a collection of verses in front of you. You need the light of God to receive His sight and insight, especially today. This is the way of godly metamorphosis.
Only the resurrection power of God through the work of the cross produces godly light and sight which is revelatory and transforming. There is a deceptive light as well, born in pride. Dark light is emitted from the absence of the cross and the Spirit of God.
Lucifer means “light bringer” but his light is dark light. Dark light blinds. “Be careful that the light in you is not darkness.” (Luke 11:35)
Job 18:5 “The light of the wicked indeed goes out, and the flame of his fire does not shine.”
John 9:4 “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.”
1 Corinthians 2:7 “We speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory.”
Things today are headed for a climax. Can you see it?
The end of the new world order is a world built and formed by Satan and with the fruits of Satan: Killing, stealing, destroying and lying. The end of God’s new world – the Millennium is a world built on righteousness, peace, holiness and all things glorious.
►If the world is going to simply recover from the pandemic, which many are hoping for and even some Christians are praying for, and the riots will just go away, and the locust plagues will just disappear, and everyone can get back to their normal life of murdering the unborn, homosexuality and other sin, then that would obviously mean that the rapture / tribulation start is a long way off.
That would mean that “All things are going to continue as they have done.” (2 Peter 3:4)
No, world, your day is done, your cake is cooked, your song is sung!
Jeremiah 50:23 “How the hammer of the whole earth (Babylon / end time world) has been cut apart and broken! How Babylon has become a desolation among the nations!”
You have nothing to lose by surrendering to our Lord now, and everything to gain – for all glorious eternity!
Edition 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!
