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 527: June 23rd 2020.
Man the god.
These are the words of life!
The title picture above, by Michelangelo originally shows God on the right reaching down to man. I’ve switched the order. Man is now enthroned, reaching down to Him!
Man as god is up against God in man.
Lucifer tried to exalt himself above God and was cast down to the earth to weaken the nations (pre-adamic). (Isaiah 14:12) Adam was told by Satan that he “could be as God.” (Genesis 3:5) But he ended up as a god, and he was cast out of Eden into a now cursed world.
The real God-man is the one who is a new creation born-again of God, set apart, seated in heavenly places and made the righteousness of God with a divine nature. He is more than a conqueror and a joint heir of all things with God.
The God-man is a walking temple of the Holy Spirit. This is our magnificent position in Messiah and in His kingdom.
We have been made “alive with Messiah” and are “complete in Him.”
But to get the fullness of Christian experience, we need to take up our cross and die daily. We must lose our soul life to find rewarding spiritual life. We must count all things as loss for the excellence of Messiah in us. We must decrease allowing Him to increase, and we must let His death to work in us. (Matthew 10:39, Philippians 3:8, John 3:30, 2 Corinthians 4:12)
We become full of His wisdom when our self-orientated wisdom is defeated and broken. We must see ourselves as unworthy, yet of immense value in Him and in His kingdom.
Our position in Him comes exclusively by Him and through the new-birth. The main characteristic or fruit is an inner purity and holiness, which then works from the inside, to manifest in the soul and flesh. Our position comes by birth and not by works of any sort.
Our position in Messiah makes us untouchable, undefeatable, full of victory, simply because we have already arrived! Oh yes we have. And that’s why the world and its god-man hate us.
The works of man as god:
Today we are seeing the futile manifestation of man as god driven by a satanic monkey on his back.
It’s all aimed at destroying the works of the true God and the true God-man - the born-again Christian.
Dethrone, defund or remove the authority of God and the biblically “terror to the wicked” of the cops (Romans 13:3) is to remove a part of God (in the institution) from society It removes biblical truth from society, and it takes the lid of the wickedness of man, making them a terror!
Weakening the cops is weakening God’s influence in the land and strengthening the reign of the sin-man, driven by Satan.
Man then becomes the illegitimate, wicked authority. He is replacing God and His word with Satan and his word, and preparing the way for the antichrist.
Noah yelled warnings at the wicked and evil world. They ignored them and mocked him. The flood of God’s judgment came and destroyed them. At the end, the ark landed on Mount Ararat. This word means: “The curse is reversed.” - It was so, after judgement!
Today modern Noah stands and yells for the world to repent. “Judgement is coming soon, he screams! What will be the outcome? Tragically, just the same, except it won’t be a flood of water this time; and yes it will end in the curse being reversed as the tribulation saints go into the Millennium, but to the world who ignored the warning – goodbye and good luck - you will need it!
The unsaved world today, in its sin and evil is speaking. It is telling “Noah” to shut up. It is announcing its own soon coming judgement!
Modern John the baptiser is also out there with the same message! He is saying to any who have ears to hear: “Make straight for the way of the Lord.” He is announcing to the church, the soon coming Messiah. Are they listening? Many are, but many are wilfully deaf and blind.
The command ahead of the coming of the Lord is “repent.”
●It’s just about time modern world, for you to “drown” in your judgement like the people of Noah’s day. ●It’s just about time modern Babel to topple and tumble, never to rise again! ●It’s just about time modern Sodom and Gomorrah to burn to the ground in a pile of ashes. ●It’s just about time modern Jericho to shake, rock and roll and all fall down, like a harrowing Humpty.
World – you will meet your maker who is coming - ready or not, and you are on the wrong side of grace! Right now grace still extends a hand of eternal friendship to you. The wise will take it.
All the world’s troubles are a great opportunity to see its heart and die to the world, and grow strong in the Lord and His kingdom. You can’t fix the world – don’t bother trying.
Today people are aiming at outer space. Man on the moon again, man on Mars and anywhere else in space, is the desire. But anywhere man goes, he takes sin with him. Man on the moon and Mars simply pollutes them with the sin of fallen Adam.
Exalting one’s self above God and rebellion to God is provably the most stupid thing anyone could do. It has never worked and always failed monumentally.
Man thinks he can be as God exalted and enthroned as God but without going God’s way. “Babylon the great” (the entire end-time world system) is the total summary of man trying to be God.
Interestingly the words Babel and Babylon are the same and mean “confusion”. But it is derived from the name in cuneiform script, “Bab-ili” which means the “gateway or bridge to God.” This is exactly what the Babylonians wanted to do with their tower. They wanted to build a bridge to God.
They wanted to reach God. But they took with them their sin, which was in their hearts and God destroyed them, the tower and the city.
That is what’s coming again, and very soon too!
Today we have the world trying to build a new world of peace - a clean, green, socialist world, with everyone equal. We have people trying to clone humans, modify their genetics and create hybrids and artificial intelligence mixed with human DNA. Man is trying to make a new man – a god-man.
But man’s new man and all his attempts are full of sin and unredeemed blood – all hell bound, all destruction bound, just like Babel.
The world is not getting better. It is in sharp decline; devolution is the order of the day. The youth of the world are being dumbed-down in this post-God era. The youth are dying the death of the godless, inflicted on them. They have been forever wrecked by their ‘clever’, godless, idiotic adults. (With some wonderful exceptions).
The preset evil world wants to break down individual thinking and create mass group-think and ex-God group-education.
But like a huge tragic army marching on to hell, commanded by Satan, in camouflage gear, they are off on their terrible journey, in step to the booming beat of a big bass drum echoing ominously through the universe.
The world wants equality for everyone. But it is an equality measured against its sin-filled, low, base-level of unrepented, repeated humanistic failure.
Equality must get rid of freedom! Think about that simple little yet profound sentence. Equality always has to be created and forced upon people. People are then no longer free to get rich from their labour, or free to be lazy slobs.
In one single sentence Yeshua destroyed the entire philosophy and practice of economic socialism or equality. He said: “The poor you will have with you always.” (Mark 14:7) Yes of course you can help the poor, but that is always from a voluntary basis and not a state instituted economic order.
The removal of the gospel from modern society is proportionate to the moral collapse, devolution and decline of society. The removal of the Bible from society has led it to nightmare captivity!
People want blessing in their choices, because their choice is their government-ordained human right. They want blessing in their sin and support of sin. They want blessing in their lives as rebels to God. So, they redefine sin and remove it from society. No sir; it doesn’t work like that! If you want blessing on your life, you get rid of sin and change your ways.
Psalm 37:12-15 “The wicked plots against the just, and gnashes at him with his teeth. The Lord laughs at him, for He sees that his day is coming...Their sword shall enter their own heart.”
Psalm 51:5 “Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me.”
The only answer to mans problems is to die and be born again. That is the way of the word and the way to eternal glorious new life. That is the way to victory.
God’s word and it’s intolerance of sin is becoming more offensive to modern man as he becomes more sinful and tries to overthrow God. As people reject the authority of God they blindly and automatically become slaves of sin and its god.
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.”
1 Samuel 2:9 (Amp) “The Lord will guard and protect the steps of His saints. The wicked shall be silent and perish in darkness. By (human) strength no man shall prevail.”
The only place of no injustice is in the kingdom of God. If you could create a world of no racism or violence or sickness, you would still go to hell, because you have not removed your sin.
If you can erase or change history your points of reference are gone and you can easily be manipulated with a “new” history that is far from the truth.
Blinded four times:
The Bible reveals four spiritual blindings. These relate to people with eyes to see but they are blind to the spiritual realm, its issues, the kingdom of God and the kingdom of the world.
God blinds man trying to see independently of Him, and in rebellion to Him, Satan blinds man to God, and personal wilful pride blinds man. Curses always blind man to their origins.
●Blinded by God. (2 Thessalonians 2:11, Deuteronomy 28:28) ●Blinded by Satan (2 Corinthians 4:3-4) ●Blinded by your own wilful blindness. (Zechariah 7:11, Jeremiah 5:21) ●Blinded by a curse. (Psalm 109:17, Deuteronomy 27:18)
Sometimes these blindings run concurrently and sometimes only one at a time. Either way if you are blinded by any of these you are grave, great danger. You are in far greater danger than you can ever imagine, especially at this point in time on the prophetic calendar.
It may come as a shock, but I tell you that most people today are blind in some areas and they don’t need to be, if they meet the godly conditions.
Can you see God’s agenda with Israel? Can you see the world’s agenda? Can you see great revival coming? Can you see the coming judgement? Can you see the need for repentance?
The tragedy with most of these blindings is that the victims don’t even know that they are blind. Their conscience is seared and they are deluded.
John 3:19 “This is the condemnation, that light has come into the world and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”
This means, people love blindness!
The biggest, universal cause of blindness is pride. That is so clearly seen in the proud false teachers in the church today. It’s a repeating pattern.
Proverbs 1:28-29 “Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; they will seek Me diligently, but will not find Me, because they hated knowledge (of God) and did not chose the fear of the Lord.”
Death is the great divider and decider. It is the great judge of right and wrong. Death lands you in judgement like it or not, with no place to hide.
But we as believers can and must die to self now, and partake in that dividing and deciding even now. We must judge ourselves in line with the word so that we won’t be judged. (1 Corinthians 11:31) This is a great privilege.
These end-times are creating faith and fear, to say nothing of excitement. Those who know our Lord grow in faith and strength. Those who don’t will grow in fear and then criticise God, adding to their problems.
Humility and brokenness makes us equal – dead to self. It brings us down to the same common floor and then lifts us up in newness of life, all with the same foundation (the cross) but as different as the stars in the sky – forever.
Sin and holiness is like the eternal dimmer / brightness switch.
When looking at all these events on the go now, it is important to have a positive attitude. Not about the world, but about the kingdom and your very own glorious future of peace. Only the true believer can do that! It is only for him.
How do you see yourself – what is your life? Is your identity solidly merged with the world! Your worldly identity must be broken and shattered and destroyed. Your identity must be reformed by and within the kingdom of God.
How do you see the world? Dying or dead, or your friend?
Psalm 119:53 “Indignation (horror) has taken hold of me because of the wicked who forsake your word.”
Are you horrified at the wicked world these days? If not, you need to get saved!
Man cannot make peace with or reach God his way. As he tries he becomes more and more an enemy of the living God!
Genesis 3:22 “The Lord said, ‘Behold the man has become like one of Us to know good and evil, and now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever.’ Therefore the Lord God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken.”
So, man the god sits pretty in his ‘heaven’ – the world, banished from perfect Eden, with a broken, impassable bridge to God!
But Adam’s curse will soon be gone and the earth will be restored. Yes, a new world order is coming, built God’s way, with sin removed and in universal peace.
Have some sympathy for the people of the world. They are trying so hard to save the unsavable and recreate what is only to be destroyed totally, in just over seven years time. What futility!
Dark, dangerous days are here and going to get worse fast, but glorious days of victory and deep spiritual growth are here too.
A great biblical sign of salvation is: “You will overcome the world,” (John 16:33) and “You have overcome the wicked one.” (1 John 2:13) That is not automatic. If you do not move forward in these things, you will be overcome!”
Do you realise that as you grow in the knowledge of our Lord and His word, you become stable, which is the anchor for others and their source of stability. You become a very real help to them.
I took this picture while wandering around in the Savuti Marsh as curious giraffe looked on.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
