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 514: March 24th 2020.
Know who to receive from.
►Don’t miss next week’s important edition – “Foreboding Forewarnings”!
It’s very important to know who to receive from in terms of spiritual things and who not. It can get you shipwrecked or get you sailing away to glory.
The first source of your spiritual knowledge, wisdom and growth is the Holy Spirit.
Stay on the straight and narrow road with the word of God exalted. This will be the road with few people on it. Avoid the wide and winding road with multitudes on it, and many opinions.
The word “doctrine” comes from the root word “dogma.” Yes, doctrine is dogmatic!
The Spirit of the living God has something to say about everything all the time. We need ears to hear and eyes to see. We desperately need the spiritual gift of discernment. (Jeremiah 5:21, Mark 8:18)
The great tragedy is to have eyes that do not see, and ears that do not hear. Sadly, those with no spiritual eyes and ears don’t know they don’t have them. If ever there was a day in which Spirit-led spiritual wisdom is needed, it is today.
In this edition I want to look at the importance of these things specifically related to these end times, and the critical prophetic issues of the day.
These are the days in which multitudes worldwide will be in the valley of decision, or great deception. (Joel 3:14)
We are on the verge of increasing catastrophes and a great spiritual revival.
Tools of the “trade”
The purpose of the teacher is to reveal the word of God by the Spirit of God. The teacher is to be a living revelation, relating God’s word, without changing it, to current situations.
Proverbs 29:18 “Where there is no revelation, (prophetic) the people cast off restraint, but happy is he who keeps the law (word).”
1 Peter 4:11 “If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God...”
Your spiritual food must cause you to grow well and accurately like a builder using a plumbline. (Amos 7:7-8). You must drink milk, eat meat and your vegetables and then ice cream. (1 Corinthians 3:2, 1 Peter 2:2)
Your food must be well prepared and not be mixed with any toxins. Mixture of truth and error nullifies the truth making it part of the pile of poison. It is the way of the world, and not God.
James 3:11 “Does a spring send forth fresh water and bitter at the same opening? Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Thus no spring can yield both salt water and fresh.”
Twisted doctrine makes you a twisted person, albeit a bit further down the road.
The teacher must not try to be the leading of the Spirit for others.
The teacher must be: ●one who is able to withstand hardship without complaining. ●He must not be a novice in the things of God. ●His lifestyle must be God-centred and humble before God. ●He must be unafraid of the opinions of man. ●He must be a man of prayer. ●He must be spiritually equipped in the operation of the gifts of the Spirit, particularly the revelatory gifts. ●He must be a radical oddball. ●He must have an air of the authority of God around him. ●He must not be an indecisive speculator offering variable alternatives or opinions. ●He will be known for knowing the word backwards and for being enlightened by the Spirit. ●He will be known by the many people that he has led to victory, and by others who hate him. ●He must know how to rightly divide and apply the word between spirit, soul and body, and between dispensations.
By the way, I reject everything being packaged as “rightly dividing the word” by some of the Revelation 12-sign teachers. It has the dangerous goal of dividing Israel out of the picture.
I reject even what they have right, because it is all of a wrong spirit. It is easy to use what is right in letter, with a wrong spirit of error, which causes great harm down the line.
A very big problem in ministry is personal pride, self-promotion and self-exaltation. You can easily spot a man of self-importance. You can see it in his mannerisms, his words and methods of manipulation, even in his dress.
Many are experts at hiding their pride, but it comes out in the end. That was the sin of Lucifer. “Whoever exalts himself will be abased”. (Matthew 23:12, Proverbs 29:23)
The teacher must know and see exactly where we are prophetically, and proclaim it, looking into it, warning and leading.
►You should always get the feeling that your godly teacher is there to exalt and glorify God and His kingdom firstly, and above all else.
On the Isle of Patmos John received the Revelation. “He fell as dead,” before the vision of the Lord.” Do you see your teacher fall in humility before the Lord? In chapter four John is caught up to heaven. In this single chapter the word “throne” is used fourteen times.
Does you godly teacher enthrone and exalt our Lord repeatedly? Does he speak of the eternal, almighty, holy, high and lifted up One?
The teacher is to transfer and impart knowledge, understanding and the wisdom of God. But know this: With the transfer of these things comes a transfer of spirits. Many times you will catch or pick up the spirit of the teacher, like a virus.
That may be just fine, but with some, you will pick up pride, prejudice, deception, error and the course to being shipwrecked.
The teacher must teach on Israel, rightly divided, which is Israel: ●Called ●Elected ●Rebelled ●Rejected ●Regathered ●Repented ●Accepted ●Received.
●He must be a regular teacher of the cross of Calvary and the taking up of your own cross daily. ●He must know the power of the resurrection and make it known. Where there is no cross preached, pride, self will, presumption and the spirit of error will be big. ●He must constantly look at the things not seen. ●He must constantly lead you to identify and overcome the world, the flesh (self) and the demonic. ●He must have a legacy of being right and not wrong with prophecy and other doctrine. He must seek the rewards of God and do what generates eternal rewards. ●He must look around at the news events of the world and know exactly what is relevant to prophecy now and what is not. He must have an excitement in him, especially in these days.
The duty of the teacher is to preach, teach and lead in areas of: Encouragement, repentance, correction, training, judgement, things to come, baptism in water and in the Spirit, faith, holiness and all the doctrines of Messiah (Hebrews 6:1-2)
John the Baptist had a message preceding the first coming of the Lord. It was “Repent and be baptised.” The message of Peter was “repent and be baptised. The message of Paul was, “repent and be baptised.” (Mark 1:4, Acts 13:24, 19:4) In some cases it is “repent and believe!”
Why was repentance and adult water baptism so important? It is because repentance is a turning away from, and death to sin and self. Water baptism represents a death to the world. Repentance opens the doors to holiness and pure belief.
These are essential ingredients in the believer’s life, even more so in light of the soon coming of the Lord. Today the worldly Christian is not interested in repentance because it spoils his pursuit of pleasure, and he is not interested in water baptism because he loves the world. He believes in himself above all else.
As we head for the season of the Feasts of the Lord, this should be a most dramatic time in world history – perhaps the culmination of, and change of dispensations.
We are right on the very verge of most significant and dramatic changes and developments in Israel. The godly teacher will know all about it, proclaim it, lead and stand with Israel in these times.
The job of the church has always been to take the gospel to the Jew first. Most teachers, especially of Catholic origin or the Spirit-less churches have done the exact opposite!
The reason the gospel is to “the Jew first” (Romans 1:16), is because God will bring blessing to the whole world through the Jew. Today, many Jews are getting saved, but the overall numbers are still very small. The church, except for a few isolated exceptions, has disobeyed God totally in this and obeyed the deceived Catholic leaders through the church age.
God is now raising up Jews to be the primary evangelists to the Jews. Hearing the gospel from your own people brings a powerful dynamic. (Ezekiel 34:11-13)
The godly teacher will bless God by blessing Israel and facilitating all these things.
As Jews begin to be saved in increasing numbers, so anti-Semitism is increasing rapidly worldwide. It did so just before the Holocaust too. It’s the longest irrational hatred.
No one in history, not one, has ever defeated God’s plans for Israel through the ages. In fact no one in history has ever proved God wrong on anything, and been right about it. Isn’t that food for thought?
The churches with an anti-Israel message or who are silent on Israel, are a stench in the nostrils of God.
The coronavirus message:
Your Bible teacher or church must have a message and response to this crisis. He must know and inform you of the cause, the effects and the solution. (More about that in the next edition)
“Have we been called to this world for a time such as this?” – You bet! (Esther 4:14)
In dealing with this virus be realistic, but do not add to the fear and panic out there.
Obey the authorities in this regard. We, as the church need to show the world that we can stand together and be strong and even offer stability when everything is shaking.
It is the true church that is the light of the world and must lead the way of repentance and turning to God.
As the church our message must cause people to surrender to our Lord. What we have now is a great evangelism opportunity.
The Prophetic Scroll is praying that our regular readers are protected from this virus.
►Watch for it to begin to level off and then start decreasing!
Do you know the way to safety?
It is the way of embracing the fullness of Gods revealed attributes and character including judgement. There is safety in a walk of repentance. This is all part of true deep love in action.
Have you encountered Yeshua as the judge – your judge, everyone’s judge? Do you know the terror of the Lord? (2 Corinthians 5:10) Do you know the fear of God? If you do, “do not be afraid,” you are safe.
I have compiled and summarised the following from the first chapter of the Revelation. Note that every major point speaks of judgement directly or symbolically!
“He washed us from our sins in His blood and He made us kings and priests. To Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. All the tribes of the earth will mourn at His coming. I saw the Son of Man clothed down to His feet and girded about the chest with a golden band, His eyes were like a flame of fire. His feet were like fine brass refined in a furnace and His voice like the sound of many waters. In His right hand were seven stars; out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword. His countenance was like the sun. He has the keys of Death and Hades.”
This is our Lord and Saviour. The Bible says that He knows you and your works. Do you see this Lord and know this God?
Does your teacher teach you all about holiness and its importance? In fact holiness is not difficult for the true Christian, because he is holy already – on the inside. It’s easy being holy when you are holy.
It is a most solemn thought that we are upheld and will be exalted by the victor over all sin evil and wickedness!
The deadly teacher:
Be careful out there! The main characteristic of the end-times as mentioned by our Lord is deception. (Matthew 24:4)
There is so much utter hogwash and dangerous deception out there. You need your armour!
Avoid any teacher that denies the baptism in the Spirit. They will be full of pride, blindness, self-will and error.
Avoid any teacher using Syncretism. This blends different spiritual beliefs into one. There are many in this boat. All those who mix the practises of Babylon and Catholicism into the church are guilty of it. Those who try to form a one world religion are guilty.
Right words can be of a wrong spirit and just as dangerous, because they seduce you with their supposed superiority. It is much more important to discern the spirit of the teacher than what he teaches.
Be very careful of people who say that you can’t receive from a particular section of scripture because it is not for the church. The Spirit of God can and does use all scripture to teach. (2 Timothy 3:16, 1 Corinthians 10:11, Romans 4:23, Romans 15:4, 2 Peter 1:20)
Christianity is not about information and religious knowledge. It is about the spirit in those things impacting and changing you.
Today more than ever, accurate true, Spirit inspired doctrine is essential, because of the rising opposition to it through the spirit of error.
Erroneous doctrine often builds upon itself and causes many to be led astray. A classic example of that was the deception of the Revelation 12-sign teachers. They did enormous damage. Some of them continue deceiving and being deceived.
Many ministers continue flogging a dead doctrinal horse, because it is what their denominations teach and require. They pass on dead letter to dead people! These people end up believing and fighting for their deception.
I have seen some who were deceived, with no spiritual gifts, get more and more deceived and end up far from the true God. If you are in error especially where biblical truth is available, it becomes a stronger and stronger stronghold in your life and more difficult to destroy as you go on.
Unforsaken and unrepented error will eventually destroy you spiritually.
I have seen people, my own father for one, who, in old age repented of his unbelief.
If you live till 90 and lived for the devil until 89, can you still live your last year without condemnation or regret? Of course you can. You can “redeem the time” (buy back) that which the devil has stolen.
Be very careful of any teacher, ministry or church that is silent on eschatology, or mocks the end-time message.
2 Peter 3:3-4 “In the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires, saying, where is the hope of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were.”
Imagine the regret of getting to heaven, being rewarded, and realising that you could have done so much more for the kingdom of God while on earth, and were called to do so much more.
This is the time to be right with God, right with doctrine and wrong with many people of the world.
This is the time to have spiritual eyes and ears seeing and hearing what God is doing.
I took this picture looking over a little waterfall on the Crocodile River, near my home.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
