●The US election remains undecided as the legal battle gets underway. Anywhere God’s ways are revealed, it all comes under attack. The battle at the moment is for biblical principles in the land (at least some) and the ways of the wicked. The US has had the privilege of having God’s word define family. His word defines a male and female. His word defines where life begins. His word defines what sin is, righteousness and holiness is. The removal of the Bible from society opens people for the evil and wickedness to manifest and grow unhindered. (Jeremiah 17:9) Removing God removes restraint and puts the masses in terrible agreement, awaiting judgement. (Hosea 4:1-2) The US Democratic Party and all liberal left movements around the world are collectively orchestrating their own demise. There are far bigger things at work than politics!
Job 12:24-25 “He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, and makes them wander in a pathless wilderness. They grope in the dark without the light; he makes then stagger like a drunken man.” (So now you know why Joe must go!)
This election is far from over, and may spring a surprise soon!
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.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
What is the Salvation of a nation?
Isaiah 32:18 “My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places.”
1 Timothy 2:2 “Pray for kings and all who are in authority, that you may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.”
As Christians we are ambassadors for Messiah’s kingdom, sent to the darkness to shed God’s light in it. Of course, there is a limit to that, because Satan is the god of the world, but nevertheless we do need to be God’s torch-bearer.
Jeremiah 29:7 “Seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive and pray for it, for in its peace you will have peace.”
There’s a distinction between God’s requirements for personal salvation and for the salvation of a nation. The scriptures need to be applied to each. So many, including pastors go off into a ditch on one side of the road, and essentially loose the plot!
It’s not so much about Trump or Biden, but more about spirits and biblical issues.
It’s not so much about the personalities but the policies and principles they represent.
In supporting one candidate, by default you are rejecting the other. So if one candidate represents a whole lot of biblical issues and the other, the opposite, you are standing for the policies much more than the personality. You cannot support one candidate and not all of his policies.
What’s different now is that God’s judgement has entered front stage. The call for repentance on the big world-influencing issues like abortion and moral degeneration is being echoed by all men of God, in tune with God, and even most rabbis.
If the call for repentance goes unheeded, judgement is on the doorstep. The liberal left parties, worldwide are not only ignoring God’s call, but making the situation far worse, by intensifying their rebellion on the very issues that have caused God’s judgment.
Psalm 58:2 “In heart you work wickedness. You weigh out the violence of your hands in the earth.”
We as believers are to go into the world from a position of being separate from it. I heard one pastor say the other day: “O well let’s just forget about Trump and focus only on Jesus.” When you throw in the towel of your ambassadorship you are capitulating to the devil. (2 Corinthians 5:20)
I’m not by any means suggesting that Christians become politicians, or go overboard on these things.
The Bible divides us into spirit, soul and body. The Bible says we are in this world but not of it.
It is our soul and body that is in this world with the nations. It is our spirit that is born again and seated in heavenly places.
We are not to be in friendship with the world and entangled in it, but to operate as agents of the kingdom of God, bringing both light and warning to the nations.
Multitudes are in the valley of decision not just about politics but their eternal life. Many are going to come like a flood into the kingdom in coming days, and many will be swept away like a flood!
I have written much on this subject, but the Bible is full of it. Here are more appropriate verses:
Proverbs 24:21 (Amp) “My son, reverently fear the Lord and king, and do not associate with those who are given to change of allegiance, and are revolutionary.”
Proverbs 28:28 (Amp) “When the wicked arise, men hide themselves, but when they perish, the righteous increase and become many.”
Proverbs 28:2 (Amp) “When a land transgresses, it has many rulers, but when the ruler is a man of discernment, understanding and knowledge, its stability will long continue.”
Proverbs 29:16 (Amp) “When the wicked are in authority transgression increases, but the righteous shall see the fall of the wicked.”
Isaiah 60:12 “The nation and kingdom that will not serve you shall perish; those nations shall be utterly laid waste.”
Psalm 9:17 “The wicked shall be turned back into Sheol (hell), even all the nations that forget God.”
Nehemiah 4:14 (Amp) “Do not be afraid of the enemy, remember the Lord great and terrible, and imprint Him on your minds, and take from Him courage to fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives and your homes.”
1 John 4:4 “Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.”
If President Trump is returned to office, the world may get a respite and holding off of judgement for a while, but it won’t override God’s overall purpose of bringing the rebellious world to its knees! If Biden ends up on the throne, it will expedite and hasten the terror to come.
You can and must secure your salvation now. If you are not sure or not saved, now is the time – not tomorrow! As you will see in the new edition, “Contrasting new world orders,” we are on the very verge of some things that will shock, stagger, surprise and stun you!
Edition 535: August 18th 2020.
Knowing the time (Part 2)
In the last edition (“Knowing the time Part 1”) I spoke of knowing the time through the prophetic times of the seasons, the Feasts of the Lord, the progressive revealing of end-time details, and more.
I want to continue the theme, but with an emphasis on what is about to break out.
But before we continue:
There is only one way to stay safe in these days. It is to know your Bible thoroughly and to know its author personally and have Him at work by His leading in your heart, through His gifts of the Spirit. All of this takes extreme diligence and a life of time. Many say that they don’t have the time for all of that. That’s exactly why they are a spiritual nothing!
More on the error of “no one knows the time:”
Now, all you end time teachers, and preachers of “No one knows the time” (Matthew 24:36) I’m going to rattle your cage – are you ready?
If you read the “Of that day and hour, no one knows” verse of Matthew 24:36 and the surrounding verses to get the context, you will note that they are all talking of the conditions prevalent during the tribulation. Then after our key verse, all the way to the end of the chapter, the subject remains the conditions of the tribulation period.
So Reverend minister; are you telling me that one single verse in the middle of an entire discourse of 51 verses dealing with the tribulation, suddenly switches to the church age and the rapture, when everything else is speaking of the tribulation?
In terms of Bible hermeneutics, exegesis and logical laws of interpretation, you can’t do that. You must keep things in context.
To be consistent with the context, “no one knows”, has nothing to do with the rapture. It is speaking of the conditions that will occur in the tribulation.
By the way, the entire seven-year tribulation is referred to in some verses as the Day of the Lord and the hour of trial. So there is your “day and hour.”
You can use this verse in application to the Feast of Trumpets, which is also called “The feast of which no one knows the day or hour.” But that is application and not interpretation.
But all is not lost. There will still be a pre-tribulation rapture. You just can’t use that verse for the rapture. If you do, you are wrong!
The real big sign for the rapture is the awakening of Israel and the approaching of the antichrist and his peace covenant. (This is absolutely not any previous covenant arising to be confirmed, or any existing deal, or anything close to the Deal of the Century.)
It is very important to know and understand what the antichrist peace deal will be and what it won’t be, because these things are all spiritually charged.
The peace plan of the antichrist: (Daniel 9:27, Daniel 8:25, Daniel 11:21-24)
Let’s look now at the antichrist’s peace plan, so that we can see what it contains, what is still needed to come about and what it is not.
●It will include the breaking of the Abrahamic, eternal covenant God made with Israel. (Isaiah 42:6, 28:18) ●It will include an international Jerusalem (all of it) with a temple on the Temple Mount. ●It will include peace with the Palestinians and Arab neighbours. ●It will include the end of war with Israel’s haters. ●It will involve dividing up the land in major divisions. ●Perhaps the greatest achievement of the antichrist deal will be the establishment of a temple on the Temple Mount and the conversion of Jerusalem into an international city. ●The main thing of the antichrist’s peace deal is that it will be accepted and immediately and come into play, right from day one. ●All nations will be in agreement with it.
The individual who gets this peace plan up and working will be revealed as the antichrist.
The Trump / Kushner Deal of the Century is no such thing.
If you claim that the Deal of the Century is it, then you are saying: ●Trump is the antichrist. ●The Temple Mount is ready for the new temple as per the agreement (of which there is no provision in the Deal of the Century). ●You are saying that all nations (“the many”) have already agreed to this Deal. ●You are saying that Palestinians have accepted the Deal. ●You are saying that peace in the Middle East has been achieved ●You are saying that Jerusalem proper (not a little spot east of East Jerusalem) has been divided out for a Palestinian capitol. And much more, that simply isn’t in the Deal of the Century!
Again, let me remind you that the Deal of Century is null and void because of its rejection by almost all nations, including the Palestinians.
Some say the antichrist deal will be the confirming of the Oslo accord. Others say it will be the confirming of the Deal of the Century. – Hogwash to both!
The original word used for “confirm a covenant” means “to establish a strong deal.” The word does not mean the resurrection of an old null and void deal.
The Oslo accord is so far dead in the water that it could never be resurrected. So many things have changed since then anyway. The Deal of the Century does not fulfil any of the requirements of the biblical, antichrist deal. It would also have to be totally re-negotiated. It is dead in the water.
The Deal of the Century, although rejected, may be revised, to some degree, or see some parts of it being implemented, but as a whole, it does not fit the bill at all.
We have just seen a peace deal between Israel and the UAE, brokered by the US come about. It too has been rejected by the Palestinians. Interestingly there is a peace deal being planned now between Saudi Arabia and Israel and some other smaller Arab nations, including Bahrain, Oman, Morocco and Qatar.
Lebanon may join the peace effort according to flying rumours.
These, collectively may become part of a bigger peace deal, but as said, the antichrist deal revealed in the Bible must include all of the items I’ve mentioned above.
►These individual peace deals with Israel are prepping the world for the big one, but none are the big one yet.
The coming Peace Covenant:
This is what may transpire: It may occur very suddenly – and probably will. It will bring the antichrist onto the stage. It will immediately produce a deceptive peace pact or covenant.
There will be a huge war called the war of Gog and Magog (Ezekiel 38 & 39). It may include the war of Damascus (Isaiah 17) and the Psalm 83 war altogether. It will be WW111.
The end of this war in which God and His Israel are the victors sees the beginning Israel’s eyes being opened to Messiah, which also signals the end or near end of the church age. It also marks the start of a great many of Gentile nations turning to the Lord in the tribulation. (Ezekiel 38:23, Ezekiel 39:29)
This war will break out very soon, and will be hugely devastating. It appears to be a very short and swift war in time. It does contain a familiar “seven-year” period of cleaning up after the war.
The war, in which Damascus and Amman, Jordan are destroyed, will be so intense and devastating that it will last one day. It will be when Israel’s economy is waning, as it is now. (Isaiah 17:4, 14) (See also Jeremiah 49:2, 23) There is much more on the destruction of Jordan (Moab) in Isaiah 16. This could all be part of the Ezekiel war.
Most wars lead to a peace treaty. Out of this war will come the Daniel 9:27 peace agreement and antichrist - inspired real peace deal!
By the way, many biblical scholars claim that these three wars are all separate events because some have different nations involved. All three wars have this phrase somewhere: “And many nations with them.” So you can’t separate the wars by identification of the participants, because many are unnamed. When you look at the geographic locations of the wars, they could quite easily all be the same war, just being spoken of differently by different authors.
A WW111 scenario is the most likely. That is what I sense the Spirit of the Lord is saying.
I have written about exactly this in numerous editions going back 20 years or more, so it’s nothing new for me. What is new is that we are seeing so many of the ducks all lining up in a row to get their heads blown off!
One big reason why these peace deals now can’t be the big one is because war is prophesied to be next on the prophetic agenda. Peace comes after war not before it.
Truth in these days:
In all these things we desperately need the full truth and the leading of the Spirit. We are in a world of growing deception and multitudes of opinions.
The truth is free, but it is of great cost. It will revolutionise you, shatter you and remake you. It will shine on you and give you glorious light. It is absolutely essential.
The ancient walls of Jerusalem are a very present “Bible” full of bullet holes of hatred. They are speaking the eternal truth of God. That truth is cast in those stones and hidden in the Dead Sea pots, now revealed, inscribed on rocks of ages and emblazoned in the Tzizi of the Hebrews.
All these things are coming to life now.
The truth of God’s word has stood securely since the day dot, and now speaks to millions who have ears to hear and eyes to see. Its ancient prophetic predictions are being revealed in our day.
Amazingly, the group-speak, in error, of the masses, and hordes of hell, led by evil spiritual forces, think they can nullify and overthrow the ancient truth and the Ancient of Days as well as the “Desire of All Nations”, (Israel) (Daniel 7:9-10, Haggai 2:7)
We are advised to return to the “ancient paths, where the good way is, where you will find rest for your soul.” (Jeremiah 6:16)
Job 12:24-25 “He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, and makes them wander in a pathless wilderness. They grope in the dark without the light, he makes then stagger like a drunken man.”
Truth makes you strong. Error makes you stupid. Removing God’s truth from society puts the masses in terrible agreement! (Hosea 4:1-2)
The masses are of an illegitimate, stolen authority, a lie! They are never right!
The stability of a nation and the whole world in fact, is seen in a number of factors. They are: ●A strong church. ●Strong family units defined by God. ●Protection of the unborn. ●A strong god-fearing government. ●Secure property rights and ownership. ●Strong borders. ●Business friendly laws. ●A strong police force and legal system. ●Strong godly morality in the nation. ●Freedom of worship in all forms for the church. ●Protection of the environment (and red setters)
If you look at what’s going on in the world today, do you see the spirit of Satan at work?
Things are coming together very fast:
Many things are falling into place very fast!
I have just seen a report indicating that a peace deal of some sort is about to come into being between Saudi Arabia and Israel. That’s a big one and would fulfil the prophecy of Ezekiel 38 in which “Sheba” (Saudi Arabia) is seen as an ally with Israel in WW111.
These peace deals with Israel are hated by the militant Arab nations and the Palestinians and their servants and slaves, the EU and UN.
They are important now, because of their frequency and timing, but as said, none are the antichrist peace treaty yet. But they all have a sinister, hidden agenda behind them.
When is the time?
Knowing the truth without the leading and enlightening of the Spirit by the gifts of the Spirit, is knowing “dead letter.” You will get as much inspiration as you’ll get from a Mickey Mouse comic.
2 Thessalonians 2:3-8 “Let no one deceive you by any means, for that Day (tribulation) will not come unless the falling away (departure of the church) occurs first and the man of sin is revealed...And now you know what is restraining, that he (antichrist) may be revealed in his own time...He (the church filled with the Spirit) will restrain until He is taken out of the way (rapture). And then (Lit=immediately after) the lawless one will be revealed...”
I’ve included (in brackets) some key explanations of the words used in the verse above. It paints an extremely dramatic picture doesn’t it? Please read it again and again!
So, what is coming next? When will these things take place?
It is war that is coming next and very soon. It is WW111.
Matthew 24:7-8 “Nation will rise up against nation and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pangs.” (Tribulation)
What this verse is saying is that the birth pangs will precede the tribulation. That is a perfect parallel with what I have called the forerunners of the four riders of the apocalypse.
We are now in the final stretch of birth pangs and forerunners!
►Note that the birth-pangs include war! This points to the fact the war comes first, then a peace deal as a result of the war and then the world goes into the tribulation.
The rapture takes place as this lot begins.
When the time is absolutely not!
The time is not when the “always wrong” brigades of YouTube ministries say it will be.
It will not be way off in the distant future sometime.
It will not be when anyone who says “no one knows the day or hour,” says it will be. It can’t be because of their own confession.
It is very important to properly distinguish between what is going on and what is not. Case in point: Many say the church is in great trouble and falling into apostasy. Many talk of great revival on the go right now, with some churches springing up with over 300,000 members. (India)
Both are true. Some of the churches, particularly in the western nations, and amongst the non-Spirit filled denominational churches, are already stone dead. But others are growing fast, particularly in the eastern nations.
Many are falling away and many are standing strong. It’s all a matter of focus. Don’t focus on one side only, it will mess your balance up and your objectivity.
You see that picture I made up at the top with all the clocks? One of them at the bottom is not a clock but a compass. Just as important as knowing the prophetic time, is knowing the direction you are going!
If we see no sign of the arriving of the antichrist, who will be pre-announced by a coming peace treaty, involving the biblical components mentioned here, within a few weeks, we will have to be prepared to wait another year!
So far we are on track for a “Trumpets” departure. (I hope)
This is one of my earlier paintings done with a palette knife and some softening techniques.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
