|This ministry has a distinct kingdom vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for Israel and the church. My position is pre-trib! I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share with you the great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God, to bless Israel and her people and the kingdom of God.|

●The US election remains undecided as the legal battle gets underway. Anywhere God’s ways are revealed, it all comes under attack. The battle at the moment is for biblical principles in the land (at least some) and the ways of the wicked. The US has had the privilege of having God’s word define family. His word defines a male and female. His word defines where life begins. His word defines what sin is, righteousness and holiness is. The removal of the Bible from society opens people for the evil and wickedness to manifest and grow unhindered. (Jeremiah 17:9) Removing God removes restraint and puts the masses in terrible agreement, awaiting judgement. (Hosea 4:1-2) The US Democratic Party and all liberal left movements around the world are collectively orchestrating their own demise. There are far bigger things at work than politics!
Job 12:24-25 “He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, and makes them wander in a pathless wilderness. They grope in the dark without the light; he makes then stagger like a drunken man.” (So now you know why Joe must go!)
This election is far from over, and may spring a surprise soon!
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.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
What is the Salvation of a nation?
Isaiah 32:18 “My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places.”
1 Timothy 2:2 “Pray for kings and all who are in authority, that you may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.”
As Christians we are ambassadors for Messiah’s kingdom, sent to the darkness to shed God’s light in it. Of course, there is a limit to that, because Satan is the god of the world, but nevertheless we do need to be God’s torch-bearer.
Jeremiah 29:7 “Seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive and pray for it, for in its peace you will have peace.”
There’s a distinction between God’s requirements for personal salvation and for the salvation of a nation. The scriptures need to be applied to each. So many, including pastors go off into a ditch on one side of the road, and essentially loose the plot!
It’s not so much about Trump or Biden, but more about spirits and biblical issues.
It’s not so much about the personalities but the policies and principles they represent.
In supporting one candidate, by default you are rejecting the other. So if one candidate represents a whole lot of biblical issues and the other, the opposite, you are standing for the policies much more than the personality. You cannot support one candidate and not all of his policies.
What’s different now is that God’s judgement has entered front stage. The call for repentance on the big world-influencing issues like abortion and moral degeneration is being echoed by all men of God, in tune with God, and even most rabbis.
If the call for repentance goes unheeded, judgement is on the doorstep. The liberal left parties, worldwide are not only ignoring God’s call, but making the situation far worse, by intensifying their rebellion on the very issues that have caused God’s judgment.
Psalm 58:2 “In heart you work wickedness. You weigh out the violence of your hands in the earth.”
We as believers are to go into the world from a position of being separate from it. I heard one pastor say the other day: “O well let’s just forget about Trump and focus only on Jesus.” When you throw in the towel of your ambassadorship you are capitulating to the devil. (2 Corinthians 5:20)
I’m not by any means suggesting that Christians become politicians, or go overboard on these things.
The Bible divides us into spirit, soul and body. The Bible says we are in this world but not of it.
It is our soul and body that is in this world with the nations. It is our spirit that is born again and seated in heavenly places.
We are not to be in friendship with the world and entangled in it, but to operate as agents of the kingdom of God, bringing both light and warning to the nations.
Multitudes are in the valley of decision not just about politics but their eternal life. Many are going to come like a flood into the kingdom in coming days, and many will be swept away like a flood!
I have written much on this subject, but the Bible is full of it. Here are more appropriate verses:
Proverbs 24:21 (Amp) “My son, reverently fear the Lord and king, and do not associate with those who are given to change of allegiance, and are revolutionary.”
Proverbs 28:28 (Amp) “When the wicked arise, men hide themselves, but when they perish, the righteous increase and become many.”
Proverbs 28:2 (Amp) “When a land transgresses, it has many rulers, but when the ruler is a man of discernment, understanding and knowledge, its stability will long continue.”
Proverbs 29:16 (Amp) “When the wicked are in authority transgression increases, but the righteous shall see the fall of the wicked.”
Isaiah 60:12 “The nation and kingdom that will not serve you shall perish; those nations shall be utterly laid waste.”
Psalm 9:17 “The wicked shall be turned back into Sheol (hell), even all the nations that forget God.”
Nehemiah 4:14 (Amp) “Do not be afraid of the enemy, remember the Lord great and terrible, and imprint Him on your minds, and take from Him courage to fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives and your homes.”
1 John 4:4 “Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.”
If President Trump is returned to office, the world may get a respite and holding off of judgement for a while, but it won’t override God’s overall purpose of bringing the rebellious world to its knees! If Biden ends up on the throne, it will expedite and hasten the terror to come.
You can and must secure your salvation now. If you are not sure or not saved, now is the time – not tomorrow! As you will see in the new edition, “Contrasting new world orders,” we are on the very verge of some things that will shock, stagger, surprise and stun you!
Edition 521: May 12th 2020.
The spirit realm:
These are the words of life!
Real victory and success in your Christian life depends upon what you can’t see!
This edition is about the spirit realm of angels, demons and the workings of spiritual forces in the world the flesh or sin nature and the demonic, as they relate to today.
These were prophesied thousands of years ago for our information, and edification.
Beware, many will be caught unawares and will fall victim to devastating things they can’t even see. On the other hand, many will be set free from the clutches of these forces, and many will be well aware of the dangers, and take action, before they can even strike.
There is much fear around, but there is great excitement. Don’t let fear bring you down. There is a biblical principle: “What you greatly fear will come upon you.” (Job 3:25)
Fear can also let in the occult – especially good sounding occult practises. Don’t go there!
Fear makes you weak. Knowledge prepares you for battle. It gives you awareness of what you need for the battle and to stand strong.
In times of spiritual darkness, the Bible instructs the church to “give heed to prophecy.” (2 Peter 1:18-19) If you don’t you are in trouble. In this verse, prophecy is compared to a light shining in a dark place.
The Bible talks of progressing darkness: “Darkness, gross darkness, and increasing darkness.” In the dark you stumble, stagger, slip and slide. The answer is “giving heed to Bible prophecy”!
More real than real:
The spirit realm is more real than the physical, natural realm, and what you can see with your eyes. Our Lord spoke of this numerous times. (2 Corinthians 4:18, Romans 8:24)
The invisible Spirit of the living God is being poured out on all flesh right now, and will soon include a special outpouring on Israel. (Zechariah 12:10 Joel 2:28-29, Acts 2:1-4)
The great satanic outpouring of forces is found right here:
Revelation 12:12 “Rejoice O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows he has a short time.
So, we see here that there will be, and is already, a great outpouring of the Spirit of God bringing salvation to untold masses, and also an outpouring of the spirit of Satan, antichrist, sin and evil.
“If you are not born again, you cannot see the kingdom of God.” (John 3:3) You can legitimately extend that and say that neither can you see the kingdom of darkness, or the mystery of sin.
John 6:63 “It the Spirit who gives life, the flesh profits nothing. The words I speak to you, they are spirit and life.”
What an incredible thing! This verse above says that the words of God are not really words, as such. This includes the words of the Bible. They are actually spirit and true life. How amazing is that?
When you open your Bible, it can be stone dead or it can be full of supernatural life springing up. The Spirit gives life. No Spirit – no life!
The word of God in your mouth can be dead, or tingling with life, dripping off your tongue. Some people are hanging above hell by a thread of the word in their mouth. Their confession will take them down or a long way higher!
The world, a cage of wild demonic “birds”
Revelation 18:2 “He cried with a mighty loud voice, saying, ‘Babylon the Great is fallen is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean hated bird.”
The verse above refers to Babylon the Great, which is a reference to the end-time world system. It “is fallen, is fallen” refers to its original fall and its end time fall. But note that the characteristic of the end time world is spiritual and full of demons, and foul spirits.
All the troubles of the world are in fact a result of a war in the spirit realm.
In times of trouble, man needs to save man, so he finds the best man and still fails, because he is blind to the mega spiritual forces in play. If you can’t see the forces you can’t deal with them.
Then you will be tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine or every opinion of man, or every conspiracy theory, lie and error.
This is why we are to “love not the world” and “come out and be separate.”
Behind the veil:
As spiritual sight increases, we emerge from the veil, with new eyes, things become new, beautiful, holy and true. Demons give way to dancers, dancing a new dance of glory.
If you could have the invisible veil pulled open, you would see incredible things:
2 Kings 6:16-17 “Do not fear for those who are with us are more than those who are with them. And Elisha prayed and said, ‘Lord I pray, open his eyes that he may see.’ Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.”
Psalm 68:17 “The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of thousands. The Lord is among them as in the Sinai, in the Holy Place.”
Zechariah 6:1 “Then I looked and behold four chariots were coming from between the two mountains, and the mountains were mountains of bronze (symbol of judgement).
There is a huge battle on the go even now in the spirit realm. The battle in the spirit also manifests in the battle for truth against all error and deception, which is also intensifying.
The forces all around us are both angelic and demonic. Your life is under the influence of either and sometimes both together if you are unstable.
The huge positive potential in you is noted by the demonic realm causing them to attack you, but know that there are more godly spiritual forces with you than evil forces. They are dancing around you, invisibly right now!
Slaughter of the innocents:
If you could have the spiritual veil pulled aside, you will see the value of the unborn and the innocent youth. You will see the value of life because it is eternal. The reward state is eternal which is why early death is tragic. It cuts short that potential.
The Bible records the slaughter of untold millions of young children. ●Pharaoh killed all the firstborn young boys. ● Herod kills the young boys under two. ●Child sacrifice to the Egyptian god of Molec (Leviticus 18:21) included aborted children. In our times, The US Supreme Court spearheaded the ●worldwide slaughter of the unborn.
Right now we are on the verge of payback time. God does not forget one innocent life slaughtered by men of antiquity and modernity!
The plagues of reprisal are coming on the wings of flying horses of death!
You see, the world can’t see that pay-back time has started.
The satanic forces are in panic mode, because they see and know that their time is just about up, so they are revving things up.
As our Lord’s coming draws closer, the surrounding environment of godly fruit, truth and saving grace is evident to those who can see. At the same time the antichrist is drawing near with his encroaching environment of sin, error, deception and all things evil.
The work of the cross and Spirit opens eyes:
Isaiah 40:31 “Those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”
The phrase, “renew their strength” above, would be better translated “exchange their strength.” It is a deeper permanent exchange that takes place after we are born again. It is not a renewed old life but a radical new creation on the inside, and on the far side of the cross, from which our power to change is derived.
It is the power of death and resurrection through the cross, together with the baptism in the Spirit and the accompanying gifts of the Spirit, that give us eyesight, insight, foresight and victory.
We get eyes to see into the invisible realm by faith.
●We get to see rewards laid up for the spiritually diligent. ●We get to see glimpses of eternity and heaven. ●We get to see ourselves as dead, yet, more alive than ever. ●We get to see demons, angels and their workings. ●We get to see the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
●You get to see that you are a store of real wealth like gold. In the physical world, gold, silver and diamonds are the ultimate long-term store of value. Through the new birth, this is what you see in yourself and others born of the Spirit.
Today, so many are without hope, having their normal lives pulled out from under them. “What is your life?” (1 Thessalonians 4:13, Ephesians 2:12)
So many people are sinking like a brick in a sea of spiritual ignorance, with eyes that cannot see.
In my life as a journalist and photographer covering many wars, and news events with much death around, I often looked into the still-open eyes of a dead person, but they could see nothing. Some of the images were haunting to say the least and still engraved in my memory.
Today, those images of the dead with eyes open, for me speak volumes in type, of the unsaved, the walking dead, with eyes open that do not see! (Mark 8:18, Jeremiah 5:21)
Thank our Lord for giving us sight, understanding, wisdom and hope. – Thank you Lord!
The modern cowboy
The world, like a cowboy, has run God out of town and welcomed in sin on horseback. But listen, cowboy on your horse, if you ride God out of your town, He will oblige and leave, but you will be releasing four evil, destructive, horsemen far worse than you could ever imagine.
So, cowboy, you need to have your dead, blind eyes opened. Many will leave your world cowboy, as they get saved, and with new eyes, see untold magnificence that they never even knew existed.
2 Corinthians 4:18 “We do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
2 Corinthians 5:7 “We walk by faith and not by sight.”
Romans 8:24 “We were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope, for why does one hope for what he sees?”
Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
The verses above are powerful, but they are dead letter if not believed and acted on in faith. These verses come to life when you are following the risen Lord. When you see Him and walk with Him, amazing things happen and you can’t make them un-happen.
►When you have seen the risen Lord, you cannot un-see Him! You are permanently changed.
When you surrender to our Lord and fall before Him you are on the way to glory, as soon as you pick yourself up from the floor!
Bear in mind that those who had an encounter with the Lord of miracles, or the risen Lord, all fell before Him, like a useless Humpty Dumpty.
●Moses was left with a dazzling, scorched face. ●Jacob (Israel) was left limping. ●Isaiah fell before Him. ●Paul was floored and left blinded temporally. ● Peter fell before Him seeing his sinful self.
(Exodus 34:29, Genesis 32:28-31, Isaiah 6:5, Acts 9:4, 22:11, Luke 5:8)
The change in the disciples was so deep and radical that they all willingly gave their lives for our Lord in martyrdom, (except John who died of old age).
It is this experience of meeting the risen Lord, if only in faith, that empowers us to “perfect holiness” in us. It is the “pure in heart that shall see God.”
Even your thinking will be judged by our all seeing and knowing Lord. He sees and He knows it all. Yes the cross strips our sin away, but don’t think you can escape His assessment of you.
Isaiah 29:15 “Woe to those who seek deep to hide their counsel far from the Lord, and their works are in the dark. They say, ‘who sees us and who knows us?’”
You can fall before the Lord in surrender or you will fall before the Lord because he has cast you down to the ground. (Isaiah 14:12-17) At the end of the day of life, every knee shall bow before Him.
Job 42:5 “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my spiritual eye sees You, therefore I abhor myself and repent in dust and ashes.”
Isaiah 33:17 “Your eyes will see the King in His beauty; they will see the land that is very far off...Look upon Zion the city of our appointed feasts; your eyes will see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle that will not be taken down. Not one of its stakes will ever be removed, nor will any of its cords be broken.”
We have a powerful glimpse of our eternal state in the Lord Himself and His 40-day time period on and off the earth after the resurrection and before the ascension.
The glorious, majestic end:
Revelation 21:4 “God will wipe away every tear from their eyes, there shall be no more death and no more sorrow, nor crying, and there shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
2 Peter 3:11-12 “Since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of people ought you to be, in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the Day of God...”
A new world is coming believe it or not. It is coming for those that are saved.
All liars, thieves, cheats, money manipulators, murderers, abortionists, extortionists and every other crime you can think of will be gone. There will be no need for the police, the court room and the jail. There will be no more watchmen needed. There will be no religions, nor politicians. There will be no more idiots, fools and stupid people.
Due to space, I will deal with this another time. It is a subject that is very interesting, dealing with the demonic, strange people, as well as some surprising realities.
You can die in your sins or the Lord’s salvation, or don’t die ever because of the rapture. (So much for the idiots who continually chant: “The only sure thing is death and taxes!”)
You need to encounter the risen Lord and the majesty of the risen Messiah! Pray for the Lord to give you that experience. It will shake you break you and reconstruct you as a magnificent one.
The eyes have it – reopened by God, now with heavenly spiritual sight.
Guard your mind, your spirit, and your eyes with all your strength.
I blended these two pictures of mine together for a new effect.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
