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 525: June 9th 2020.
These are the words of life!
The word “reverberation” means: A persistent sound that makes things seem to shake and vibrate, or a booming repeating wave that follows the initial event.
The rapture will blow our socks off for sure. It takes place in a flash, in an “atomo” (atomic moment) It will occur mysteriously, in the air, silently and out of sight to all unbelievers left behind. (It is the Second Coming that will be seen by all).
The rapture of the true church will be the event that causes reverberation, repercussions and rumblings around the world like echoing thunder, in the hearts, minds and souls of the left behind masses, as the shock sets in and the seven-year tribulation begins.
There will be howling, yelling and shouting in disbelief. The world will be crying, “me too?” “Don’t you know, God – ‘my life matters’?”
Isaiah 13:6-8 “Wail and howl for the day of the Lord (tribulation period) is at hand! It will come as destruction from the Almighty. Therefore all hands will be limp, everyman’s heart will melt and they will be afraid. Pangs and sorrow will take hold of them...Their faces will be like flames.”
But, as the rapture approaches, the reverberations are already starting. Just the teaching and sharing of it is causing the fists of many in opposition, to shake in reverberating anger at the teachers, the Bible, and God!
This edition is about rapture musings, meditations, appraisals and approvals, and about making the rapture opponents mad and angry.
A rapture reverberation is being seen right now in the rejection of rapture teaching by many churches. The rapture rattles their cage.
The greatest proof ever of a pre-tribulation rapture:
In plain sight, is this great and powerful fact and reason for the pre-trib rapture.
The Bible confirms in plain language in four passages that God works differently with man in the different dispensations. (Ephesians 1:10, 3:2, Hebrews 1:1, Colossians 1:25)
The dispensation of the law had specific unique characteristics. Salvation was not through the new-birth experience, but by simply believing and having salvation imputed to them. There was no indwelling Holy Spirit. They were not “new creations” as they are in the New Covenant.
Without going into all the details of Daniel’s 70 weeks prophecy, it’s well accepted common knowledge that the Old Covenant dispensation is on hold for the church age, and will resume and be completed by the seven-year tribulation.
So, here’s the big thing: If the church is to go through just one second of the tribulation period, that would mean that the church would have to become un-born-again and un-Spirit filled and un-newly created! The true church would have to be de-churched and made tribulation saints. Do you think that’s going to happen? – It never will!
The destination of the church is heaven. Ultimately it will be the New Jerusalem, heaven, earth and the entire universe. But initially the destination of the church is heaven, and the destination of the tribulation saints is the Millennial earth. There’s a big difference!
Our Lord said: “I will come to receive you to be where I am.” (John 14:3) That is in heaven.
We see here proof supreme that the church cannot be part of the tribulation dispensation at all.
The relationship between the rapture and Israel:
Isaiah 66:19 “I will set a sign amongst them (Israel)...and they shall declare My glory amongst the Gentiles.”
Israel was born in a day on the 14th May 1948. (Isaiah 66:8) This foreshadows Israel’s spiritual birth, which will also begin in a day. Bear in mind that the entire tribulation period is also called “The Day of the Lord.”
What will be the grand sudden sign causing Israel to turn to their Messiah?
Zechariah 3:9 “...I will remove the iniquity of that land (Israel) in one day.”
The church was commanded by God to “take the gospel to the Jew first.” And, to “make the Jew jealous.” The church by and large ignored this and did the opposite.
It is the rapture of the church that will have the most dramatic reverberations amongst the unsaved Jews, left behind. They will immediately become angry and jealous that God has left them, the chosen people behind! (Romans 10:19)
So, finally, in its last breath on earth, every member of the true church suddenly obeys God’s command to take the good news to the Jew and make them jealous, through the rapture!
The rapture itself becomes the great, glorious sign and message. The rapture will shock the hell of the Jews. The rapture will make them instantly angry at God and jealous of the church.
But very quickly Israel will repent and suddenly recognise who their Messiah is, turn to Him, worship Him, clean their acts up, and become the world’s greatest evangelists, in the tribulation.
Isaiah 49:6 “I also will give you (Israel) as a light to the Gentles, that you should be My salvation to the ends of the earth.”
Isaiah 55:5 “You (Israel) shall call a nation you do not know, and nations who do not know you shall run to you, because of the Lord your God, and the holy One of Israel; for He has glorified you.”
The reverberations of Israel’s soon-coming awakening are being felt worldwide. Tragically, even many churches and teachers are coming against Israel with a new satanic passion.
By the way, you can prove a post trib rapture if you get rid of Israel!
Part of the very reason for Satan’s creation of a new world order, one world government, economy and religion is a reverberation against the coming glory of Israel and God’s triumphant plans for them, even through much tribulation.
If Satan and his people can create a new world order, reaching up to God, just like at Babel, God’s plans for a new world order called the Millennium would be defeated.
It is the satanic ‘triumph’ of globalism that will be defeated in the greatest conflicts the world has ever seen – soon!
We are about to see the annexation of Judah and Samaria. This will cause major upheavals and conflict. It may well lead to the unfulfilled wars in the Middle East. All of this is a reverberation of the coming glorification of Israel, and expansion of the land.
A major pre-tribulation rapture confirmation is seen in the fact that book of Revelation deals with the church in the first four chapters, and the church is not seen again except in heaven, during the tribulation chapters through the rest of the Revelation.
The absence of the church in the tribulation is a powerful reason for the rapture itself and a pre-tribulation rapture.
Interestingly, the birth of the church at Pentecost was marked by the indwelling Spirit, the placing of the law in believer’s hearts, and the giving of tongues.
We see that there is coming a time when “tongues will cease” and prophecy will vanish away or dissipate over time. (1 Corinthians 13:8) The original word for “cease” means to cease in an instant, while the “vanishing away” takes place over time.
It is widely believed (and by me) that the instant “ceasing” is due to the rapture. Tongues are not evident in the tribulation but are in the entire church age.
The world is going crazy:
The forerunners to the catastrophes of the tribulation are lining up right now. They are:
•Plagues (disease) •Famines (evident in many nations) •Pestilences (locust invasion striking like never before right now) • Nations (ethnic) rising against nations (riots and social unrest) •Lawlessness (rioting, defunding the police) •Removal of the restrainer (increase wickedness and evil •One world currency (collapse of earnings and economic hardship) •One world religion (churches joining the agenda of the world) •Still to come are the big wars and all the natural upheavals.
All the craziness in the world currently, is a reverberation of the soon coming rapture. The world’s current upheavals and troubles are just a small glimpse of things to come under antichrist.
The world’s god is preparing his world of criminals, idols, icons and idiots. The world is preparing for its ‘rapture’ into the tribulation with unrestrained, uncontrolled evil, wickedness and sin.
The world is trying to create peace through control. The world can’t create world peace because “there is no peace for the wicked.” (Isaiah 48:22) And “wickedness is in the heart of man.” (Jeremiah 17:9)
The world is not sustainable. Its days are numbered. The writing is on the wall!
Man as a god has failed, as in the Garden of Eden, and in the gardens of Babylon. Godless man can’t coexist with the God- filled man.
God and the Bible do not have the same agenda as the world and its word – the media.
If you are standing securely in the world, receiving its wisdom, you are about to have the carpet pulled from under you and great will be your fall – just like the tower of Babel.
Right now we are seeing the god of the world grooming untold millions of dumb puppets, for their final act. Their terrible curtain is squealing as it winds higher. There is an ill-omen in the air for them, and their great dilemma and tragedy is that they can’t see it!!
Man in all his wisdom, without God, is an unholy, blinded fool.
►Isaiah 44:18 “They do not know nor understand; for He has shut their eyes so they cannot see, and their hearts so they cannot understand.”
►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 problem with modern democracy is it champions human rights; but the human has become so much more a fountain of wickedness than ever before. So what we now have is open conflict between the wickedness of the human and God’s rights!
Proverbs 28:4 “If you forsake the word of God you will praise the wicked.”
My dear, beloved Christian friends, you need to sit back and take stock and be so thankful to our great God that He has saved you and given you sight, and eternal victory. Count your blessings – literally. Write then in a book of thankfulness. (Habakkuk 2:2) Thank the Lord that He has written your name into eternity.
The world hates holiness. Holiness is of God. It is the nature and character of God. The world, the flesh-nature, the demonic realm, all hate biblical holiness.
Worldliness normalises sin, by removing holiness.
The world and its mouthpiece, the media has an evil agenda. It is for a new one world order, united with sin entrenched in it. Their agenda is to promote globalism. This is also the agenda of many churches today, who are in reality, cross-less counterfeits.
But the true Christian is growing in holiness right now. The word “holy” means “separate and apart.” A growing revulsion at the world is causing us to grow stronger in holiness.
Of course immediately after the rapture all true believers will be forever holy, and set apart from all forms of sin and evil. What a day that will be.
Present and coming holiness in the believer is one of the reason the spirit of the world hates us.
The horror of counterfeit teachers today:
If you, or a ministry does not teach end times, and a pre-tribulation rapture in particular, you are creating a weakness and an end time deception.
If you are a God-ordained teacher, your job is to teach the “whole truth” and not ignore what you deem objectionable.
Be careful of who you get your information from and who you allow to be your spiritual watchmen. The deeper into error you go, the harder it is to get out. You become formed by them and a veil of blindness descends over you.
There is often an illegitimate power and authority in Christian group-think. And there is good, godly power in the words and ideas of the anointed of God. You need the spiritual gift of discernment in these days like never before.
Perhaps the biggest missing link to God’s anointing in these days is the fear of the Lord. Those with no fear of the Lord in them are dangerous teachers.
Psalm 36:1-4 “There is no fear of God before the wicked. He flatters himself in his own eyes...The word of his mouth are wickedness and deceit...He sets himself in a way that is not good...He does not abhor evil.”
An easy way to identify those with no fear of the Lord is seen in their silence on it. They never talk of it. Those with no fear of the Lord are always pride-filled. They never repent of being wrong.
I know some self-proclaimed ‘watchmen’ who have never been right! And they never repent, because they have no fear of the Lord.
The same is true of those who never speak of the cross. They are full of self, and hide their pride and self-importance well, in false humility.
Teachers incur a stricter judgement! (James 3:1)
Jeremiah 25:34-35 “Howl shepherds and cry! Roll about in the ashes, you leaders of the flock! For the days of your slaughter and dispersion are fulfilled; you shall fall like a precious vessel. The shepherds will have no way to flee, nor the leaders of the flock to escape.”
►Light expels darkness, but when the light is in the hands of teachers of error, truth hides in its darkness.
How to identify a teacher of error: He has a hobby horse that he won’t let go of, and he is not open to correction or change (repentance.) He is forever flogging the dead horse, and it just won’t go. He can’t move on and when he finally does, it’s into more error again – because his heart is still full of pride.
In times of shaking people look for stability, security and affirmation.
In a shaking people turn to the news to find out what’s going on. They don’t want fake news and a political agenda. Christians turn to Bible teachers, and watchmen. They don’t want to get a spirit of error.
There’s a sort of inner witness and relaxing fulfilment when you encounter the truth, and an uncomfortable disquiet when faced with error.
The spirit of error is like a devouring lion, with a reverberating roar, seeking whom to devour.
What Bible teachers need to know well is that every time they are wrong on some big biblical or doctrinal issue, it sticks in people’s mind. Each time they are wrong they further discredit themselves and what’s far worse is they damage the faith of many, especially young believers.
Distance yourself from teachers who are always wrong - spirits are using them!
In the midst of the reverberations of the coming rapture, antichrist, tribulation, and wrath of God, there are oceans of peace available now. This is where to anchor your soul. The lover of your soul, our Lord and Saviour has peace laid up for us all – that surpasses understanding.
Psalm 37:37 “Mark the blameless man and observe the upright; for the future of that man is peace.”
Isaiah 9:7 “Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end...”
Isaiah 32:17 “The work of righteousness will be peace and the effects of righteousness quietness and assurance forever.”
This is one of my old-style paintings. I did it with a pallet knife.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
