|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 531: July 21st 2020.
Who may abide in the secret place of God’s presence and dwell with Him in safety, security, protection and love in these times? Who may be hidden, secretly in Him and filled with His knowledge, understanding and wisdom?
There are many things hidden to man and kept secret, from the very foundations of the earth, that are to be revealed by our Lord to a few, qualifying people in these days?
These are days of great excitement!
Matthew 13:35 “...I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.”
Job 11:6 “That He would show you the secrets of wisdom...”
Job 15:8 “Have you heard the secret counsel of God? Or do you limit your wisdom to yourself?”
The Bible is full of secret, hidden wonderful gems and treasures of truth. All hidden from the pride and arrogance of man! Hidden from the Spirit-less big deals!
Secret: Strong’s H5641: “Cathar.” Meanings: hidden, concealed. Greek = “krypto”
The meaning of “secret” is krypto! And krypto means: Hidden. Not openly revealed. High quality marijuana of Florida. Superman’s superdog. Okay, you get the whiff!
You need to be well qualified to see, receive and understand these deep secrets. The qualifications are: humility before God, a passionate desire to know Him and them, a passionate desire to enter and dwell in the secret place of His presence.
There are many who meet these conditions for a deeper walk with our Lord, but not the majority by any means. When our Messiah becomes your all, all your troubles seem so far away! The things of the world grow strangely dim, and you will see what a wonderful new world is ahead for you.
Even the trees will dance before you!
But there are many bad things hidden in secret places as well.
Secret deadly horses:
I have spoken much about the forerunners of the four riders of the apocalypse, who release various sets of plagues and judgements upon the earth. It’s worth bearing in mind that we do not see the full effects of all the deadly forerunners yet, never mind the main riders.
But beware; when the starting gates fly open, all the forerunners will be riding into the storm suddenly!
We have seen the forerunner to the antichrist’s deceptions in many areas. We have seen his forerunner, the “crown” (Corona) given to him. (Revelation 6:2) We have seen the forerunner to plagues, diseases, to massive locust invasions, to nations rising against nations. (Ethnic)
Secretly waiting in the wings are the forerunners of war and of natures wrath.
Revelation 6:8 “I looked and behold, a pale (green) horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him, and power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with the sword, with hunger, with death and by the beast of the earth.”
Pale (green) horse: Strong’s G5515 – “Chloros.” Meanings: Green, tender green grass.
This word “chloros” is used in a number of other verses for green grass, shrubbery, trees or bushes.
The verse speaks undoubtedly about the soon coming wrath of nature and environment itself. Many other verses point to and confirm this.
The tribulation will see the wrath of God, the wrath of Satan, the wrath of man and the wrath of nature all on the stage together.
What we have been seeing in terms of nature’s upheavals over the last 2000 years or so, is nothing compared to this. These events will kill one fourth of the world population - a few billion people.
The rider of specific end-time war is still to come. This is of course reference to the big future wars of the Middle East and WW111.
Israel in the secret place:
It’s no secret that God has a chosen plan for His chosen people, the land and the city. But it is a deep hidden secret to the world and many Christians motivated by the blinding power of antichrist spirit.
It’s no secret that I reject totally the short-sighted philosophy doing the rounds today that all the virus problems, ethnic troubles and others are God’s judgement on the world because President Trump divided the land of Israel.
Bongo Bongo Land had no part in the Kushner / Trump Deal of the Century. Why would God bring Covid-19 on them as a judgement for Trump’s supposed action?
Legally, morally and from a common sense point of view, you can’t bring judgment on anyone for a crime that hasn’t been committed yet.
If all the current world troubles are because Trump divided Israel, then he is the antichrist, and on the stage already, because the dividing of Israel in these days becomes an issue when it is done by the antichrist as the tribulation begins. (Daniel 11:39, Daniel 9:27, Zechariah 12:3 Joel 3:2, Amos 1:13)
Study these verses above and their surrounding context. They are all tribulation verses.
If you are teaching and spreading the huge message that the corona virus etc is God’s judgement on the world because Trump divided Israel (which he has not done), you obviously have to have heard such big important news for the world from God.
Some of the teachers, who are repeatedly teaching this, have never been right once on prophetic utterances – never! Their track record is total failure.
If it’s all Trumps’ fault, you are uniting many people around a real false case and you are distracting from the real reason, which is where the attention needs to be.
What then is happening? What is causing the troubles with the virus, the civil unrest and the like?
►It is the attempts by Satan to pry open the hands of nations that hold the “key of David” which is friendship with Israel. Satan wants them to drop that key! (See edition 509 for more, HERE
You must bear in mind that the USA has a long standing, God-ordained and organised relationship with Israel. God has a long standing and organised plan for Israel and her blessed friends!
If you decide to assist the devil in breaking that relationship, by claiming that these big world troubles are because Trump divided Israel – you are going to need a lot more than good luck in the future.
Those constantly pushing the error that Trump divided Israel, thus causing all the world’s current problems are speaking a lie, designed to hurt, injure and bring down the US. These pastors and teachers are working for the downfall of the US.
►In fact I predict that many of those who are so anxious to see the US fall on its head because “Trump divided Israel” will become all out ministers of replacement theology and agents of Satan very soon!
I say it again: The Trump / Kushner Deal of the Century was not ratified or accepted. It is null and void at this stage. To become effective it will have to be largely renegotiated. It must be accepted by all parties to become effective. It is not the antichrist deal of Daniel 9:27, because we are not in the tribulation yet. The condemnation by God for dividing Israel takes place by the antichrist as the tribulation begins.
Let me also say that the Deal of Century may at some future time morph and mutate into a ‘dividing the land’ issue. It is not anywhere near it now. If anything, Trump has been un-dividing the land that the Turks and the British did.
So what is the big cause of all the big worldwide problems?
The call today is the same as in antiquity: “Let My people go!” Not “let My people go” into the arms of Islam, or the world-system (Egypt) But “Let My people go,” to the secret new spiritual Promised Land of salvation.
The reason for all the big trouble is the world and much of the church is holding Israel back. They are trying to wipe Israel off the map of God’s map of soon coming salvation.
Remember how the ‘clever’ people of Jericho tried to stand in the way of the children of Israel on their way to the Promised Land? That worked out well for them didn’t it!
God’s map of Bible prophecy wipes Israel’s enemies off the map!
It is the “father of lies” who has made the big lie acceptable in the world’s sight, which is, that the Palestinians and their religion, Islam have a legitimate right to Israel.
Goebbles, one of Hitler’s Nazi sidekicks and architects of the Holocaust, said “Speak a lie often enough to the masses and they will eventually believe it.” This is the method of the media today. It works!
Applied to Israel, the Jews and the Palestinians - nothing has changed. The EU, the UN and most of the world have fallen under the deadly spell of Satan’s repeating lie! The media is the mouthpiece.
The mass-media is Satan’s keyboard and megaphone.
At the end of the day, you will follow the spirits you have let into your life!
The greatest weapon and defence system Israel has is the Bible in their own hands and in the hands of their supporters, the Israel-friendly church and nations.
God’s word is a secret fiery light regarding Israel. It sheds light, and burns away the junk!
The secret fiery light of the temple menorah is beginning to reveal the cross of Calvary to Israel. Soon they will see it clearly. It will be out in the open – no more a secret for just a few! They will see their Messiah "pierced" for them. (Isaiah 53:5)
Israel’s great awakening is under threat. It is being challenged by the devil and may Christian ministers of the gospel. (Isaiah 52:1, Joel 3:12)
Secret evil places.
Today the church world is filled with terrible, increasing false teachers, charlatans, liars, frauds, false prophets / watchmen, leading the gullible into dangerous error. (But a lot more and that soon.)
The gullible are easy to find and manipulate. They are everywhere.
Proverbs 14:15 “The simple believes every word.”
But beware, Christian leaders who use the gullible:
Deuteronomy 27:18 “Cursed is he who makes the blind to wander out of the way of God.”
Psalm 64:5 “They encourage themselves in an evil matter, they talk of secretly laying snares; they say, ‘who will see them.’ They devise iniquities. ‘We have perfected a shrewd scheme...”
If you are a regular, willing receiver of the ministry of the Christian counterfeits and frauds, beware, they are soon going to be used for the final great deception, filled with evil spiritual power.
Do you really think that at this point in time on the prophetic calendar, God is going to suddenly allow everything to return to normal without large scale repentance in the church and secondly in the nations?
In the church age, God has not been judging nations and cities like He did in the Old Covenant. This has really been the age of grace in that regard. But things are about to change dramatically, with the soon coming dispensation change.
All these things now are the forerunner to the dispensation change.
Acts 17:30 “These times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands men everywhere to repent.”
Acts 14:16 “In past generations, He let all nations go their own way.”
Genesis 6:3 “My Spirit will not strive with man forever.”
►Shaking causes repentance and revival! Don’t miss the opportunity!
Will you keep and hold your faith asthe world falls apart? Don’t lose sight of the supernatural, and its sustaining power, which is going to be needed more and more.
In fact forgiveness of sin is supernatural. Freedom and liberty in Him in His secret place is supernatural. Healing is available and is supernatural. Financial provision is supernatural.
Comfort in distress:
For those in urgent need of psychological help or counsel, or know of people who are in need, please refer to the editions under the “Editions by subject” tab, on the right and under “Counsel.” Edition 83, which I wrote in 2011 is one of them which is most appropriate for today: “Counselling believers in perilous times.” HERE
The great secret to the Christian life is that you can’t do it. The secret is the indwelling God! He is the essence of life. Only He can live the Christian life.
The disciples soon saw the main thing. They noticed that Yeshua had someone else living inside of Him – God. “The Father abides in Me. It is He who does the work”, He said. (John 14:10) This is the secret. It is not performance or formulas, but God in you.
As you take up your cross daily, you die and you decrease and He lives and increases in and through you. It is only as you progressively die to self that you walk secretly in resurrection life, while all else around you falls apart.
Brain power and human reasoning must be defeated before God and in His presence. Brain power is fine in subjection to God otherwise it is the counterfeit of the leading of the Spirit.
The counterfeit of the power of the cross is mind games, intellect and human reasoning.
►Pride squeezes out the cross, and the cross squeezes out pride.
Talk about the biggest mistake the unsaved can make!! Here it is:
Psalm 10:13 “Why do the wicked renounce God? He has said in his heart, You will not require an account!” (Oops!)
1 Corinthians 2:6-7 “We speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory.”
Psalm 31:20 “You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence from the plots of man, you shall keep them secretly in a pavilion (shelter), from the strife of tongues.”
Proverbs 3:32 “His secret counsel is with the upright.”
►One who touches spiritual reality in the secret place will always have an air of difference about them. They will automatically identify with another who has touched the same.
You must at some time go willingly to your own secret Gethsemane. But remember that Gethsemane was part of the final journey to the cross. You must see your need to die successfully!
Only then can you say, “I have been crucified with Messiah.” And remember that crucifixion was for criminals. That’s what you are before crucifixion.
Too many are great spiritual failures because they think they are worthy and good.
Our death to self is not to pay for sins, but to pay for the salvation of our souls. (Mind)
Only in God’s light can you see yourself as one in desperate need, totally undone, and then glorious victory.
Now more than ever, you need to have your own special secret place.
Job 11:6 “Oh that He would show you the secrets of wisdom! For they would double your prudence! Know therefore that God exacts (requires) from you less than your iniquity deserves.”
There is a secret place of great peace in the truth with the King of kings available to you, or you can accept the world’s attempted peace plans which incorporate destroying God’s word and bringing Him under your judgement, with all your kings of fools!
Spirit inspired and led study of God’s word is your greatest hope and your great anchor of the kingdom of godly life. It is your sustaining power and the grace of God to keep you and preserve you.
This is a collection of some of my elephant pictures taken in Botswana.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
