|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.|

►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 530: July 14th 2020.
Censoring God is for dummies. So, this edition is about stupid, dumb people. How about that for a “politically correct” opener?
Censoring God uncensores the devil and releases a terrible symphony of evil on the world.
The definition of censorship is the suppression of, or removal of parts of news, a book or work. It involves the removal of information to change the meaning of the original and replace it with the thoughts and views of the censor or interpreter. Censorship is normally against what is deemed offensive.
Censorship takes many forms and is seen in many things like entertainment, politics, and religion. Perhaps the most sinister form of censorship is seen in skewed Bible interpretation. You can easily change the meaning of a doctrine by editing in or out various things.
In dealing with the Bible we must understand certain principles. Interpretation must be literal and exact except when obvious, as in a parable. Application of a verse is much broader. But in both cases the leading of the Holy Spirit is essential.
2 Peter 1:20 “Know this first, that no prophecy of scripture is of any private interpretation.”
The Bible itself absolutely forbids censorship of itself, and curses those who do so by changing the truth in any way.
Deuteronomy 4:2 “You shall not add to the word which I commanded you, nor take away from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord.”
Revelation 22:18-19 “I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues that written in this book and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part in the from the Book of Life, from the holy city and from the things written in this book.”
The end objective of censoring God is to silence His word and, replace His word with another god and another word masquerading as truth.
Today we see the destruction and removal of everything that is of God and was founded in God. The world is trying hard to censor God and get rid of His word and people, so that another god can come in unrestrained.
The non literal, allegorical, spiritualization of prophecy is censorship. It makes the presenter God’s editor! The success of the early church is traceable to its literal interpretation of scripture. It was the Catholics that brought in the allegorical method.
The unseen purpose of the allegorical method is not to interpret scripture, but to pervert its meaning, making it subject to the interpreter. The authority of scripture becomes the perverted mind of the sin-filled interpreter, opening the door for Satan.
The literal, uncensored, unchanged approach to prophecy does not rule out the use of allegory, symbols or figures of speech and types when obvious.
The great, classical evidence for the literal method of interpretation is seen in the use the New Covenant makes of the Old Covenant, which was literal, meaning that the literal method will continue.
The serious Bible student must not surrender to the ever-changing allegorical interpreter. He will then become handcuffed vulture-food.
You cannot unite man-made philosophy with Spirit inspired revelation. You cannot and dare not use interpretation to support local church orthodoxy.
Jeremiah 23:14-17 “I have seen a horrible thing in the prophets of Jerusalem...They strengthen the hands of the evildoers, so that no one turns back from his wickedness. All of them are like Sodom to Me and her inhabitants like Gomorrah ...Do not listen to the words of these prophets who prophesy to you. They make you worthless. They speak a vision of their own heart, not from the mouth of the Lord...They say, ‘you shall have peace’, to those who walk after the imagination of their own heart. ‘No evil shall come upon you’, they say.”
A friend of mine was recently bemoaning all the big troubles on the go in the world today. She is a half-baked, half- committed, liberal Christian of sorts. (But not a blonde) I asked her three questions:
Do you think homosexuality is a basic human right? Do you think abortion is a basic human right? Do you thing the Palestinians have a basic human right to part of Israel? She said ‘yes’ to all three.
The answer to these questions is: No they are not basic human rights, they are big-time sin.
I said to her, “With views like yours, do you see why these troubles are here and going to get a lot worse”. The big needed fix is repentance, which she could not even see!
Here is the sad state of just what is happening in the world now:
Jeremiah 11:19 (Jeremiah’s life threatened :) “I was like a docile lamb brought to the slaughter and I did not know that they had devised schemes against me...Let us cut him off from the land of the living, that Jeremiah’s name be remembered no more.”
They tried to get rid of the prophetic voice of Jeremiah, calling for repentance! In effect they tried to cut out and censor the voice of God!
Psalm 119:11 “Your word I have hidden in my heart so that I might not sin against you.” (Psalm 37:31)
Do you remember the word given to me by our Lord for the year of 2019? It was “If you forsake the word of the Lord you will praise the wicked”. (Proverbs 24:24) How appropriate that was and still is!
The modern world wants us not to question their wickedness, disinformation and lies! They want us to join them in praising and partaking in wickedness!
Proverbs 4:19 “The way of the wicked is like darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble.”
Job 18:5 “The light of the wicked indeed goes out, and the flame of his fire does not shine.”
Proverbs1:33 “Whoever listens to Me will dwell safely and be secure, without fear of evil.”
How to censor God just like a prime idiot:
●Remove the Bible from society. ●Shut or restrict church activity and evangelism. ●Change the Bible, and remove what you deem objectionable. ●Remove prophecy and introduce allegorical interpretation rather than literal interpretation. ●Introduce false teachers, false prophets and blind, proud watchmen. ●Keep the church divided. ●Reject what God loves and chooses. ●Get rid of Israel’s prophetic role. ●Remove the cross of Messiah and the need to take up your own cross. ●Remove the gifts of the Spirit and spiritual weapons of warfare. ●Give authority to the world and the mass media.
When God censors the devil all is well. When the devil censors God, hell lies just ahead.
Isaiah 30:1 “Woe to the rebellious children, says the Lord, who take counsel, but not of Me, and who devise plans, but not of My Spirit, that they may add sin to sin,” (Media)
Proverbs 17:15 “He who justifies the wicked and condemns the just, both of them alike are an abomination to the Lord.” (Media)
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.” (Media)
Matthew 7:29 “For He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.”(Media)
Luke 22:2 “The chief priests and the scribes (Media) sought how they might kill Him...” (The context here is because Yeshua did not do things their way!)
Censoring the things of God is also a form a brain washing. It is the brainwashing of the brainless and those without the fullness of the Spirit in them.
When your brain has been washed of the things of God, your brain is as dirty as a scummy, rabid rat.
Where’s it all going?
I know I’ve used this so many times but it is the truth and needs repeating.
All the big issues on the go now are important in that they are all a vehicle for ultimate control of the masses by a new world order which will create worship of the antichrist.
The virus and surrounding issues, the race riots, the anti-Semitism are all vehicles with Satan in the driver’s seat.
There is an unsurprising consistency in the radical left, the secularists, the socialists, Marxists, communists, atheists, agnostics, and globalists, since the same driver is in the seat of them all.
What an incredible shock they all have coming when they are run over by our driver, the King of kings, the King of all the earth, the King of the Jews, the King of Israel, the King of glory!
If your goal is to find your life in this God forsaken world, you had better start panicking.
Frankie said, “I did it my way”. God will say, ‘sorry, you should have done it My way, now go to hell.’”
You can’t lift yourself by your shoe strings!
Why can’t man save himself? Because he has Lucifer’s sin, transferred to Adam, in his heart and he can’t get rid of it. Man really wants to be like God. Satan, the liar, told Adam, he could be like God. The Babylonians built Babel to reach and be like God. But man can’t get rid of lingering, inbred sin.
What’s this I see? Who’s this emerging from the Garden with a crown of thorns on His head? Why, it’s the Second Adam, with salvation in His wings. Satan lied to man, and in his pride he bought it, but the Messiah tells the truth.
You can reach and approach God only through God’s ordained sacrifice – the cross and the perfection it creates in you through the resurrection.
One of my spiritual fathers, Derek Prince, often spoke of the five prides: The pride of race, the pride of grace, the pride of place, the pride of face and the pride of life. You can write a book on each of these, but in a nutshell they are the problem of modern man. Pride squeezes God out, and elevates himself. Humility before God, squeezes self out and enthrones God.
Pride universally blinds you. It blinds you to God and His ways, to God’s righteousness and to coming judgement. Pride separates you from God and unites you to the king of pride – Satan. (Job 41:34)
Censoring God on Israel:
How you see Israel and God’s plans for the land, the city and the people, identifies very much about you. What you don’t see, speaks volumes about you too.
If you are anti-Israel, anti-Zionist, anti-Jew, you are ignorant of the scriptures, ignorant of God’s will and plans and a simple fool possessed by the spirit of antichrist. You will be blinded to many things.
Far too many Christians today are dead to God’s word on Israel. Their eyes are shut tight; they are therefore pawns in a playground of demons.
As we look into the future through crucified eyes we see correctly and accurately.
It bothers me no more:
We all know about the soon coming war in which Israel destroys the city of Damascus and a few others in Syria and Jordan. The familiar story is that Damascus is the oldest continuing city in the world never to have destroyed in war. Therefore, prophetically, the war must still lie ahead.
That’s all fine, but there was one verse in the Isaiah 17 discourse that always bothered me. No more!
Isaiah 17:3-4 “The fortress also will cease from Ephraim, the kingdom from Damascus and the remnant of Syria will be as the glory of the children of Israel...”In that day it shall come to pass that the glory of Jacob (Israel) shall wane, and the fatness of his flesh shall grow lean.”
Since Israel’s independence she has not waned. In fact she has waxed strong in many areas. But suddenly Israel is in trouble. Covid-19 has devastated the country and the economy in particular. Israel is now sitting with an unemployment rate of 18% and it is worsening fast. Lockdown has done a deadly work (and it may be coming back).
Israel is better off than her neighbours and many other nations, but she is waning! Iran and Syria are just about at their all time worst economically and in other areas.
The stage is suddenly set.
But let’s look a bit further. The verse speaks of the “fortress (military) of Ephraim ceasing.”
Who is end-time “Ephraim”?
I’m not getting into all the details here and now, because it is lengthy. Most Bible interpreters / analysts (including me) believe that Ephraim and Manasseh, sons of Joseph, are end-time USA and Britain. This would include the commonwealth nations. Some believe that these two refer to the Christians of the West.
These are also the “young lions” of Ezekiel 38:13
The important issue is that as Israel is waning, it suggests that Ephraim will cease to be a military fortress at the time of this war.
I believe, with many others, that the Damascus war will not be isolated. It may be part of the Gog & Magog war of Ezekiel 38 &39, as well as part of the Psalm 83 war. Iran is most certainly included in the Psalm 83 war. (Verses 6 &7)
►Could it be that this terrible virus plays a part in the timing of this end-time war - WW111? I would say yes!
It may of course be the war itself that causes Israel and Ephraim to wane, but when combined with the other references in Jeremiah 49, it seems that a sudden external issue is the cause.
Hosea chapters 5 and 6 offer further insights into the relationship between Israel and Ephraim.
Obviously all those who have censored Israel out of their theology and the end-time scenario, would not see or understand any of this.
I do believe that as more of these end-time events begin to play out on centre stage, that more and more Christians wake up and come searching for answers. In repentance they will find them. Without repentance they will go deeper into the thick mud.
The popular, deadly, evil replacement theology is pure censorship of God’s prophetic word on Israel.
Get the garbage out of your eyes:
Revelation 3:18 “ I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in fire, that you may be rich, and white garments that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye-salve that you may see.”
Eye Salve: Strong’s G2854 “Kollourion.” Meaning: A preparation rubbed onto the eyes to clean them and prevent the eye lids from dropping closed.
This is our business today. We must all keep our eyes open and stop them from dropping off to sleep in the midst of great battle for the souls of man.
By the way, times of great persecution always see times of great revival.
This is all extremely serious business!! We are changing people, drawing them upwards with eternal consequences. The stakes are high very high, as high as heaven.
There is no such thing as a godless person! You have God or god in your heart. Heaven or hell is your future!
The true church has Spirit led and inspired watchmen as their guards, with wide open eyes. The counterfeit church has sleeping blind men as their guards!
As God’s editor and censor, you will become filled with the spirit of killing, stealing, destroying and lying - the primary characteristics of Satan! The mass-media are already victims, being supporters of the wicked.
Bear in mind that the ultimate goal of censorship in the wrong hands is the normalisation of sin and false doctrine.
The answer is humility before God, surrender in brokenness before God, and standing impenetrably against the wiles of the devil. Yield to God, resist the devil and you will grow strong in glory.
This is one of my abstract mixed-media paintings incorporating collage elements.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
