|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.|
►We have now reached 47 million regular visitors.
►Next Edition, Lord willing: "Reasons for the tribulation."
- Due to the fast changing prophetic news environment, check back here for any new or urgent updates that are important.
- The event at the Washington Mall in front of Capitol Hill, by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn called “The Return” was a brilliant all day call to world, national and personal repentance for the sins of abortion, homosexuality and others. It was one of the largest ever Christian events, streamed worldwide and watched by many hundreds of millions. What a truly amazing, powerful event! You can watch the 12 hour event HERE
- The US moves to re-impose sanctions on Iran against the wishes of the UN and EU.
- The Arab nations lining up for normalisation deals with Israel are all enemies of Iran. Could this be the spark that lights the fuse? Hmmm!
- Various Arab nations line up to make peace deals with Israel. Interestingly they are not nations mentioned in the war of Ezekiel 38 & 39. (Neither are the Abrahamic Accord two, or Egypt and Jordan, who have existing peace deals with Israel.) The alignment forming divides between Iran’s foes and friends – right in line with Gog and Magog!
- Egypt and UAE push to be “pillars of stability” in Middle East, as Egypt signs new gas deal with Israel.
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.
25th August 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Accords make them mad!
The Abrahamic Accord recently signed at the White House, and those upcoming are NOT the Daniel 9:27 peace covenant. They are no covenant at all and make no reference to a temple, the land or Jerusalem. They were made between nations that were not major enemies of Israel in the first place. They are what would be called “normalisation agreements.
Far too many church leaders and teachers are following each other claiming that these agreements are the big one.
Let me tell you how this will all play out. These normalisation deals have already angered the Palestinians. They have angered Iran and they have angered Syria, Hezbollah and some other arch-enemies of Israel.
Once you get a whole lot of rabid, wild, angered dogs in a corner, you are likely to get your backside bitten if you try to pet them. These accords are not ‘Trump dividing Israel’, as the blind, always-wrong brigade keeps chanting.
They are instruments cleverly being used to freak-out the Palestinians and allies. It is designed to isolate the Palestinians, Iran and allies. Yet many in the church are the ones being angered! Of course we know it will ignite WW111, coming soon to stage near you. I say, “freak them out some more”, so we can get this show on the go, and over, and go home!
Are we heading towards the big prophetic events? Yes absolutely, but this is not it yet.
Some believe that a rather obscure verse now places Rosh Hashanah on the same day as Yom Kippur (28th) and this is now when the rapture will occur.
The problem with that is that requited, as yet unfulfilled events are still at large, so it changes nothing.
The other problem is that it is the always- wrong Revelation 12-sign teachers, putting it forward. They also claim that the Abrahamic Accord just signed, is the antichrist covenant of Daniel 9:27. They also claim the Deal of the Century was the antichrist covenant too.
Every single verse used by the Revelation 12-sign crowd is wrongly used. The verses are of replacement theology. This is important now because they seem to be making a resurgence, with this offence to the Jews continuing.
When Jews see their own scriptures perverted, turned on their heads and used to get rid of them, they react with horror. And those of the church who do this – know that there will be consequences.
Their replacement theology classics are: The Revelation 12 male Child (capitalised), is the church and not Messiah – Israel. They replace the Israel with the church in Isaiah 66:8 (read the surrounding verses), and others.
You may not be aware that the Catholic church invented replacement theology to get rid of the Jews. Here are some of the tenets of the Catholic Council of Laodicea in 363 AD:
●Outlawing of the keeping of the Sabbath. ●Changing the Sabbath to Sunday. ●Heretics and Jews were forbidden from entering the church. ●The 60th canon removed the entire book of Revelation from the New Testament. ●Communion was to be denied those who had been baptised by full immersion. ●Christians must not Judaize by resting on the Sabbath. ●It is unlawful to participate in any of the Feasts of the Jews, or to feast with them. ●Only baptism into the Catholic faith is allowed and to be accompanied with learning by heart of the Catholic creed. ●The laity may not read the scriptures.
Some of these (above) have changed since then, but some have not. The same spirit resides there.
We are now in the birth pangs of Israel’s spiritual birth. This is a most important and critical time.
In many ways Israel is like a pearl of great price, hidden in a field, or like a diamond in the rough! “Diamonds are forever,” sang Shirley Bassey and how right she is.
Israel will finally triumph over all her enemies in victory, with God’s help, in spite of those in and out of the church that place obstacles in her path.
Isaiah 26:17-18 “As a woman with child is in pain and cries out in her pangs, when she draws near the time of delivery, so have we (Israel) been in Your sight, O Lord...we have as it were, brought forth wind; we have not accomplished any deliverance in the earth, nor have the inhabitants of the earth fallen.”
Much of the church has been a stumbling block to Jews. As the Jews come to repentance, many will come to repentance for their evil against the Jews, but many will be led deeper into enmity by the spirits controlling their heritage of heresy.
Replacement theology leads the Jews away from the truth and their spiritual Promised Land. Messianic believers lead them to the truth and their spiritual Promised Land.
You should not be surprised to see that most false doctrine affects Israel in one way or another, and knocks on to other doctrines.
Israel is still in the birth canal. She has been born as a nation, but not spiritually yet. She is still blind to her Messiah and in rebellion. God has chosen some to speak to Israel, to call her to repentance and to encourage her.
The prophet Jeremiah was given a message from God to His people in rebellion.
Jeremiah 1:18-19 “I have made you (Jeremiah) this day a fortified city and an iron pillar, and bronze walls against the whole land...They will fight against you, but they shall not prevail, ‘for I am with you’, says the Lord.” (Isaiah 66:8-9)
The metals mentioned above have meaning. Iron = strength or crushing. Bronze= judgement on sin, and a pillar represents support and stability.
The Prophetic Scroll aligns totally with Jeremiah in this monumental endeavour.
Interestingly, at this particular time, many Christian churches and ministries are seeing and recognising the place of Israel in prophecy. And of course the division remains with those stuck in their ditch.
The repentance of Israel:
Micah 7:9-10 “I (Israel) will bear the indignation of the Lord because I have sinned against Him, until He pleads my case and executes justice for me. He will bring me forth to the light, and I will see His righteousness. Then my enemy will see and be covered with shame...”
God knows and we know that Israel will finally fulfil God’s purpose and calling for them as they repent in large numbers.
►In ancient Hebrew the word “repent” is made up of the two letters, ‘Shin and Beyt’ Shin is a picture of flames of fire or teeth. Beyt is a picture of a house or tent.
The word has the pictographic meaning of burning the house down as you leave and go forward. This means you have no intention of going back! You have burnt your bridges to sin! That’s what true repentance is. How amazing!
Anyone out there in the process of divorce, please don’t burn the house down as you leave. You’ll have a tough time explaining Beyt Shin to the judge.
Edition 528: June 30th 2020.
The end-time stage:
“I consider His word more than my necessary food.” (Job 23:12)
End-time event are speeding up. They are escalating in quantity, intensity and geographical scope.
This edition is about the setting of the stage for the greatest drama and spectacle of all time to play out in the grand theatre of God.
We are in the auditorium. The extravaganza’s theatrics have begun; the performance has morphed from a ballet to a battle. The drama has turned to tragic, but real melodrama. The nickelodeon has become the thundering trumpet of truth.
The footlights and floodlights are dancing the dance macabre, with screaming quadraphonic reverberations, shaking the dusty walls and very foundations.
No pen of any ready writer could have written this spectacle, without God Himself direction the pen.
Your ticket; your birth certificate, has brought you here, to the very edge of your chair!
The horror show:
The reality of this is that the show is not just a scary story, or a tale of terror, or a monster movie, but it’s all the real deal, prophesied indelibly in God’s pages and happening now.
How terrible to go forward into these dark days – blinded by God to the truth, (2 Thessalonians 2:11) and blinded by Satan to God! (2 Corinthians 4:3-4)
Deuteronomy 28:28 “The Lord will strike you with madness and blindness and confusion of heart.”
Those who are rebels to God on this stage are fools of all fools, twice blinded and motivated by the one who took the place of the God they rejected – Satan!
You can look at the news through you own eyes with your subjective interpretation, or you can look at it through the eyes of God, His word and Bible prophecy, with Spirit led eyes of understanding.
Bear in mind, dear reader, that while this horror show begins to roll out, a peace-train has pulled up at the station down the road.
The peace-train is about to take off to glory land – the land of the King and His supernatural, miraculous, eternal kingdom.
But your birth certificate is the wrong ticket. It won’t get you onto the peace train. You need a death certificate and a new born-again certificate! Yes sir, this great peace train is exclusive; it’s only for those who are dead once and born twice. (1 Corinthians 15:31, Galatians 2:20)
Act one of the play:
The world has devoluted into a smoky stench. Even its so-called peace is a satanic form of peace with the absence of any holiness, morality and resistance to evil. Peace to them is the absence of resistance to their evil.
These are strange days with happenings difficult to comprehend!
Telling people they are wrong has become a crime against human rights. The rights of unredeemed man and the world-system have become sacrosanct and above the right’s of God. But that’s not enough for this evil world. God Himself has been thrown out.
World, you are on the precipice of your great self-made fall into the abyss in a blaze of lying glory. Like a tragic Titanic, you are sinking fast and your band still plays on, and the dancers dance on in ignorant bliss.
This word above originated from the removal of icons from Catholic churches in the dark ages, because these icons were given special saving status. They were destroyed so that the truth would be replaced as the icons fell.
Today the word has been hijacked and now refers to one who removes and destroys statues, sculptures, street or city names, symbols, flags or anything that has an association with past history, especially anything with godly origins.
These things are to be destroyed so that even the memory of them is wiped out and a new communist ideology can come in.
An iconoclast is now seen as one righting “crimes against history”, who must destroy freedom, to establish control, which is the antithesis of freedom. It is censorship.
The history of America is rooted in people who pitched up with a Bible under their arm and with a love for Israel, creating a refuge for Jews in dispersion. This is what the iconoclast’s despise, and is at the root of the hatred.
So, the word means to come against and destroy so that the replacement can come in. This is the very definition of “antichrist”. ●The antichrist spirit comes against the true Christ and replaces Him with a false Christ.
The world is trying to create a world of equality. The true church is not equal and never will be with the world. We are far, far above the world! That is why they hate us.
Communism is the attempted creation of a common or equal society. Its goal is equality which in itself must destroy freedom. ●Biblical truth sets you free indeed. ●Communism sets in a prison indeed.
Do you see how many amazing parallels and similarities there are at work today? And the Bible has it all identified, condemned, and judged!
So this is where we are. Act one sees the world full of deception, plagues, sickness, famine, pestilence, ethnic troubles riots and the like. But it’s early days. This is all the beginning of sorrows.
BANGGG and in a blinding flash the rapture snatches the true church right out of the theatre with not even a puff of smoke left behind.
Act two of the play:
Identifying the antichrist:
Why should we have any interest in the antichrist if we are to be raptured before his revealing?
It is a major theme of the Bible and prophecy in particular, and therefore part of God’s truth. We need to have an interest because the spirit of antichrist is here now ahead of the person himself.
We must know the methods of the enemy. Ignorance makes you vulnerable. There is power, strength and stability in knowledge of the whole truth. (Acts 20:27)
We must know at least the basics, because we will see him coming. We won’t see the antichrist’s actual arrival, but we will see the events leading up to his arrival, which most importantly is a primary sign of the pre-antichrist rapture.
2 Thessalonians 2:3 “Let no one deceive you by any means, for that Day (tribulation period) will not come unless the departure (rapture) comes first and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition.”
So then, as we see the preparations for the signing of the Daniel 9:27 peace treaty, which identifies the antichrist, we will know that the rapture is about to occur.
Yes I agree fully, we don’t need to go overboard on the antichrist as many do.
►The antichrist will be a “prince of Israel.”
Ezekiel 21:25-27 (Babylon the sword of God) “Now to you, O profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day has come, whose iniquity shall end. Thus says the Lord God: Remove the turban, and take off the crown; nothing shall remain the same. Exalt the lowly and abase the exalted. Overthrown, overthrown, I will make it overthrown! It shall be no longer, until He comes whose right it is, and I will give it to Him.”
►The antichrist will come from the Hebrew tribe of Dan.
Jeremiah 8:16-17 “The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan. The whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they have come and devoured the land and all that it is in it, the city and those who dwell in it. For behold, I will send serpents among you, vipers which cannot be charmed, and they shall bite you says the Lord.”
Genesis 49:17 “Dan shall be a serpent by the way, a viper by the path that bites the horse’s heels so that its rider shall fall backwards.”
The tribe of Dan was cursed because of their rebellion to God and worship of false gods. This is why Dan is omitted from the 12 tribes that make up the 144,000 in the Revelation.
►The antichrist will not regard the God of his fathers, implying he is a Jew. He may be a homosexual:
Daniel 11:36-37 “The king shall do according to his own will; he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god and shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods and shall prosper until the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done. He shall regard neither the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall magnify himself above them all...
►The antichrist is referred to as the “Assyrian.” There was a time when Assyria incorporated present day Israel, within it, so that may settle that. Isaiah 14:25 “I will break the Assyrian in My land (Israel)” and Isaiah 31:8-9
►He may be a Muslim. If so he will be a Jew from the tribe of Dan who later converted to Islam. That may answer that.
►He may be a leader from the revised Roman Empire, which is present day Europe. This empire once incorporated Israel when the Roman Empire was at its peak. That may answer that.
►He may come from Turkey, which is likely. If so, it will be discovered in his genealogy that he is or was a Jew from the tribe of Dan somewhere in his history.
The antichrist will divide the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem in the tribulation period:
Daniel 11:39 “He shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god (Satan), which he shall acknowledge and advance its glory; and shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain.”
Joel 3:2 “I will gather all nations, and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat , and I will enter into judgement with them there (in the tribulation) on account of My people, My heritage, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations. They have also divided up My land.”
Zechariah 12:3 “In that day, I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples. And all who would heave it away (divide) will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations were gathered against it.
This event takes place well into the tribulation period if you read the surrounding verses, as does the dividing of the land.
Those who keep chanting that President Trump divided the land of Israel need to read these verses again! They happen in the tribulation and are done by the antichrist.
What we as believers need to be very aware of is the spirit of antichrist, which is at work today, and very much at work within the church.
Please take careful note of the following shocking verse:
1 John 2:19 “They (many antichrists in the spirit of antichrist) went out from us (the church), but they were not of us. If they had been of us they would have continued with us, but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.”
This verse above is headed “It is the last hour.” It relates to these end times and the spirit of antichrist in the church!
The spirit of antichrist comes against the truth and replaces it with the false! It is the antichrist spirit that comes against Israel to replace her with a godless new world order. ●All Christian ministries of replacement theology are of the spirit of antichrist!
Act three of the play:
As the tribulation moves forward there will be a frightening, specific release of hordes of terrible, destructive, tormenting demons from imprisonment. These particular demons are not around and about today.
At the same time ●the wrath of God, ●the wrath of Satan, ●the wrath of man and ●the wrath of nature will be running concurrently. They will be more severe than anything the world has ever seen or ever will see again. (Matthew 24:21, Jeremiah 30:7, Daniel 12:1, Joel 2:2, Revelation 16:18)
At the same time there will be a satanically led outpouring of great deception and blindness to the things of God, which people will not be able to prevent.
These things will be so severe that people will seek death (suicide) but it will flee from them! (Revelation 9:6, 6:16) There will be no place to hide.
Let’s add to William Blake’s great poem: “Tyger, tyger burning bright in the forests of the night, what immortal hand or eye could frame thy fearful symmetry?” Shall we say, ‘Satan, Satan burning bright in the forests of the end time night?’
Never walk alone in the forests of the night. I have – it’s not clever! You may wake a sleeping lion!
The lion does not sleep tonight. He is awake and He is hungry! You can hear His stomach growling like a disturbed symphony? Can you see His steaming breath? “When He roars, His children will come trembling from the west”. (Hosea 11:10, Hosea 3:5)
Satan lurks around in the poisonous forest like a lion seeking whom he may devour. But the Lion of the tribe of Judah (and Samaria) lurks around the streets of Israel and knows already just whom to devour and He will!
Act four of the play:
There is a white horse Rider, of all truth, judging and making war. His eyes were like a flame of fire and on His head were many crowns. He is the Lord of glory. This white horse rider has with Him many armies clothed in white, fine linen following, also on white horses! (Revelation 19:11-14)
This is the King of kings and Lord of lords returning from the wedding feast with His church, now His bride at His side at the Second Coming.
This magnificent white horse rider casts a terrible shadow of hell over the earlier white horse rider (Revelation 6:1) with the bow and no arrow, of deception, wearing a crown (corona) flying through the skies with terrible destruction in his wings - the antichrist.
The true fully equipped church will never be defeated by the world. Satan can’t get through God’s authority in the believer if exercised by the gifts. Satan hates the power in the believer’s life that comes through holiness and the use of the gifts.
Israel’s role throughout the grand play:
Why is Jerusalem, more important than Washington, Rome, London, Paris or any other?
Ezekiel 5:5 “See I have set you (Israel) in the midst of the nations.” Some call Israel the “navel of the earth.”
But it is all working towards the grand climax, the great conclusion:
Isaiah 42:6 “I the Lord have called you in righteousness, and will hold your hand; I will keep you and give you as a covenant to the people, as a light to the Gentiles.”
Acts 13:47 “I have set you (Israel) to be a light to the Gentiles that you should be for salvation to the ends of the earth.”
Haggai 2:6-7 “Once more, says the Lord, I will shake heaven and earth and sea and dry land, and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations (Israel)and I will fill this temple with glory, says the Lord of hosts.”
Haggai 2:19 “Is the seed still in the barn? As yet, the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate and the olive tree (types of Israel) have not yielded fruit, but from this day forward, I will bless you.”
Israel’s enemies, the world system, Islam, and counterfeit Christianity are headed for destruction:
Haggai 2:23 I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms; I will destroy the strength of Gentile kingdoms, I will overthrow the chariots and those who ride them. The horses and their riders shall come down, everyone by the sword of his brother.”
The above verse implicates the Arab nations as part of the Gentile kingdoms, who according to Genesis 27:40-42, use the sword on their brothers. (Obadiah 1:10 confirms)
All Gentile kingdoms who come against Israel in the tribulation period will be destroyed.
The Judeo Christian heritage and culture in the western world is under attack. Grave troubles have been a long time in the making, while the church was sleeping.
Psalm 43:3 “Send out Your light and Your truth; let them lead me and bring me to Your holy hill.”
John 18:37 “...Everyone of the truth hears my voice.”
Job 15:8 “Have you heard the (secret/hidden) counsel of God? Do you limit wisdom to yourself?”
Are you an alarm clock, a sounding siren, a trumpet of warning to others, or just going with the flow?
I took the picture of the orchid using the light-paint technique and superimposed it over some ethnic mud-cloth which I made.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
