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 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!
