Shabbat Shalom to all!
But first: The American vote: A vote for the Democrats is a vote to rebuild Babylon (which God destroyed) and a vote for the Republicans is a vote for a reprieve for the world, and for many kingdom of God principles.
Walking right in a crooked world:
Romans 12:3 “I say to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one the (a) measure of faith.”
The original word used for a ‘measure’ of faith is “Metron,” meaning a determined, measured -off extent.
This applies particularly well to teachers, watchmen and the like. They get given a “spear” and sceptre of authority and influence, which is limited.
But God can change the limit or measure depending on the obedience of the subject.
Many in ministry have no “metron” of God at all but only presumption. There ‘metron’ is manipulative, deceptive, which has no authority or ‘spear’ behind it at all.
As a teacher, you can become the “deceiver of the brethren” and nothing but a control freak if you’re not within your limit of authority.
Many in ministry have had a spiritual gift imparted to them through the laying on of hands. That is perfectly biblical, but as with all things true, be careful, there is a counterfeit too. Laying on of hands can transfer the spirit of the imparter.
The laying on of hands by a false teacher also lays on you false words of false authority. I once heard a prophetic anointing being given to a minister by another false minister, who said at the time of laying on of hands that the recipient would have massive influence and authority around the world. Shortly afterwards he was dead!
Don’t let anyone “lay hands on you suddenly”, which means too quickly without full discernment. It is your job to see to that.
You can receive a false anointing, or mantle of demons from the laying on of hands by a false teacher.
Following a false leader will lead you astray eventually. You must test the spirits. When you come into agreement with a false teacher you have opened a door that you will find very hard to close.
As the world has left the word and is experiencing the dramatic consequences, so the same is true for a section of the church, which has left the word. It has left the literal interpretation and Spirit-led application of the word – disaster has come to those churches.
Those churches then operate in a false ‘anointing’, with no ‘metron’ at all.
Don’t underestimate the power of going off into error. It can wreck you. You will not live right on wrong doctrine. It’s progression will destroy you spiritually.
The only unified, universal message of the unsaved is that sin is okay and the Bible is not.
When you affirm that some sin like homosexuality is a basic human right and then go honestly to the Bible, you will notice that never the twain shall meet! (And I’m not talking of the Moody Blues!) You have to throw out one or the other.
Have you noticed that we are seeing so much fake news today? These things are all spiritually charged and on course – the wrong course.
Trust in the media is declining fast. The world’s mega media empires have been uniting and merging. This has seen a dramatic escalation in unified misinformation and fake news. But most people eventually see the hidden agenda behind the mass media and reject it.
The mass media have shot themselves in the foot. You can’t hoodwink people forever, except the uneducated, fools and the possessed.
Tragically, the same is happening in many churches who have a message that just doesn’t fly anymore, and disillusioned people just give up.
The image below is your key to a successful Christian life, even in these times. It is the light of life (to the Jew and Gentile) represented in the menorah, the truth of God’s word (all of it), and the application of the cross.
►Here is a most important sign to stay safe in these dangerous days of deception: Who else shares and agrees with what you have been taught. There is always a group of mature, deeply spiritual, highly informed Spirit-led pastors, leaders, and teachers out there. They are your spiritual measuring rod. They are your safety net.
In these days of much resistance, perhaps the greatest opportunities to grow your faith in our Lord, loom large!
You can change your future now. When you get there, it’s a done deal, over and out - no going back! There will be tears of regret, gnashing of teeth or wonderful relief in eternal victory. You will be met with: “Well done good and faithful servant, or the terror of “depart from Me, I never knew you!”
“The fire will test each one work of what sort it is.” (1 Corinthians 3:13)
The battle is for your mind. Your mind is the great aggregator, sifter and decider of what you think say and do. But inside your mind is your own “holy of holies” That is your choice-centre. If the devil can get in there he will defeat you.
You must fill your heart and mind with the word.
Your mind is the doorway to your spirit – the ultimate target and goal of the devil.
What often angers me no end, is the presumption by the shallow prophets that they are hearing God for you. You must listen to them, as though they, in all their error and failed predictions, hear God speaking to them. They think that others don’t have ears to hear God. In reality God is speaking to some of them and telling them to get out of ministry.
It’s a very serious thing to lead someone astray.
Be careful when you say you speak for God! Of course there is nothing at all wrong with saying that you believe, God is saying this or that, or that you feel impressed by Him about this or that.
So much of “the Lord told me to tell you,” and “I had a dream” is pure garbage.
If you put all the rapture dreams everyone and his auntie is having these days into a big aggregator machine, the machine would explode, because they’re all so different, with different time lines, accompanied with “the Lord told me, its 100% true.” The machine would spit smoke and say, “sorry, no comprehendo”. So you take out the instruction manual and it says: “This machine does not work and will self destruct if fed lies.”
Deuteronomy 13:1-3 “If there arises among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams and he gives you a sign and a wonder ...and it is in error, you shall not listen to his words.”
Jeremiah 23:25-32 “I have heard what the prophets have said who prophecy lies in My name, saying, ‘I have dreamed, I have dreamed!’...Indeed they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart...I am against the prophets who steal My words from his neighbour. I am against the prophets who use their tongue and say, ‘The Lord says.’ I am against those who prophesy false dreams, and tell them and cause My people to err...I did not send them...”
Don’t throw the baby out with the whiskey. There are occasions – few of them, where dreams may have some relevance.
The jury is still out on Pastor Dana Coverstone’s dreams as their fulfilment still lies ahead. He most certainly does not come across as one looking for self-affirmation though.
Edition 542: October 6th 2020.
Amazing end-time truths:
Our story is riveting, dramatic, earth shattering, life changing. It puts Shakespeare to shame, and it’s a lot more than a story, it’s all founded in glorious truth. From Genesis to Revelation, the Bible is becoming more relevant today than ever before.
What would be the purpose in not knowing the time of the Lord’s coming? Israel was rebuked for not knowing the time of her visitation. God gave warnings in Noah’s day, to Babylon, Jericho, and Lot. God warned Israel before her captivity. The truth is, you can and must know these things.
What is truth (to be offended – read this)
The truth is the word of the living God, rightly divided dispensationally, and applied by the leading of the Spirit of God.
►The truth is that you are going to an eternal hell if not born-again. Your opinions and good works matter nothing. Your self-life and the world-system, is the home of the devil. Much modern Christianity contains as much truth as a squashed rat. If not saved, your eternal doom is racing towards you – fast.
►The truth is, the new-birth in Yeshua. It is the only way, truth and life - the only answer. It is new life, through the cross, different from and opposed to what is modern worldly ideas of life. The new life is offensive to the old life. The truth is great, eternal glory with spectacular rewards coming for all those who embraced the truth and qualify.
As God brings every increasing judgment on the life of this world, many people are in despair instead of seeing that judgement must come on a fallen world and that there is a new, far better, higher life on offer and it’s free. (But it will cost you everything you are!)
Do you know that the instant you step into eternity, by death or rapture, you will be perfect in all ways forever! Your recreated spirit is perfect now, but not your soul and body yet. Spirit, soul and new body will all line up in perfection, in eternity.
So many of these truths are hidden below the surface and presented as “mysteries” in the Bible. It is essential that you know them in these end times.
These mysteries are hidden to the natural man, but revealed to the spiritual man. Some of these mysteries include:
- The mystery of the kingdom of God and of heaven.
- The mystery of godliness.
- The mystery of Messiah in you.
- The mystery of the gospel.
- The mystery of Israel’s hardening in part.
- The mysteries of sin and iniquity and lawlessness.
- The mystery of the woman riding the beast (false church).
- The mystery of Babylon the great. (End-time world)
The original word used for “mystery” means: A hidden secret to outsiders, but something that is known to an exclusive group of insiders. It’s like having the secret password for a treasure chest.
Matthew 13:11 “It has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given.”
Did you know that one of these mysteries is called “The twinkling of an eye” mystery? This is the rapture of the church, when we will be changed. (1 Corinthians 15: 51-52)
So, now we see why modern man is incapable of saving himself and his world. He can’t see or understand these things.
He can’t understand what sin is! He has a veil of blindness over his eyes. His understanding has been darkened. He can’t see Satan sitting on the throne of his life and his world!
So the next time you wonder why this world is going crazy in such extreme rebellion to God, it’s because the demonic monkey sitting on its back has morphed into a gorilla and they can’t see it.
It can be very frustration when you can see something so clearly and others can’t. But that still doesn’t let them off the hook of coming judgement!
Remember my verse for the year 2019? It was “If you forsake the word / ways of God you will praise the wicked.” (Proverbs 28:4)
That verse was written so, so long ago and its getting longer ago, but it is becoming more real and relevant every day. (As is the verse for this year – Isaiah 47:10-11)
Do you know what one of the great tragedies of our day is? We are seeing (rightly so) a call to repentance going out all over the place. But it will fall on deaf ears and blind eyes if the people can’t see their own sin and evil, in the first place, because it’s all a deep mystery to them.
Only God can open their eyes.
Some holy biblical contradictions, all true:
Talking about mysteries, have a look at the following amazing truths. The unsaved would look at this and say we are off our rocker, but we see the wonderful truth, and guess who is off their rocker?
The first section of these points below, relate to our spirit being, or position in Messiah, and the second to our soul. We need both correctly applied. By the way, this is why so many of the word / faith prosperity churches went off into the ditch. They concentrated only on positional truth trying to apply it to the soul realm.
- We have abundant life, yet if you find your life in this world you will lose it.
- We are seated in heavenly places, yet we take up a cross daily.
- We are alive with Messiah, yet we die daily.
- We are more than conquerors in Him, yet we say, O wretched man that I am.
- Greater is He that is in me, yet in me dwells no good thing.
- We are joint heir of all things in Him, yet we count all things as loss.
- We are strong in the Lord, yet we must decrease.
- We can do all things through Him, yet we can of our selves do nothing.
- We are complete in Him, yet death works in us.
- We are crucified with Messiah to bring life to others.
- We are full of wisdom when our own reason is defeated.
- We are unworthy servants, but of immense value.
- We are wrong in the world’s eyes but right with God.
We are in desperate need of all these correctly applied in this day, so that these truths can stabilise us and make us a strong pillar, standing securely in the end-time onslaughts.
Looking through the headlines these days can be very unsettling and disturbing, if you don’t know your position in Messiah, or if you don’t know His word very well.
Growth in the grace of God sees these things at work. It sees the coming of the Lord, the coming of hell, deliverance from the world. It sees your need for the fear of the Lord.
Many today are not seeking God, only their own comfort and continuance in the world.
The dramatic failure of world government:
The underlying cause of all the world’s dramas today are essential spiritual. It’s all working towards a satanic plan to come against all things of God, and replace them and Him with Satan, enthroned in a new world order, consisting of a one world political system, economic system and religion.
You have to get rid of God to have a world government!
If that statement is true, then it means that the new world order / government, is a doomed failure and a lost cause of pure futility! Here is the great big shock for the new world order:
Isaiah 9:6 “Unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given, and the government shall be upon His shoulders. His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
Oops! I think the new world order made a little mistake!! That’s what you call a real oops! Imagine all the new world order crowd sitting in hell going “oops, oops, oops”!
How about that! I know who the real new world order head will be. I even know His name. It is Yeshua the Messiah, Jesus, the Christ!
The mass media is the prime tool of the devil in prepping the world and the worldly Christian for the new world order.
These days the news is not the news anymore, it is a political agenda.
You can have the Spirit of the living God in your heart leading you or CNN and their devil!
My friends if you can’t see the evil one through the media mist, I feel sorry for you.
1 Thessalonians 5:21-22 “Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.”
1 John 4:1 “Do not believe every spirit but test the spirits.”
What an incredibly powerful verse this is below? How applicable to mass media today:
Isaiah 8:20 “If they do not speak according to this word (of God), it is because there is no light in them.” (Amp = “no dawn and no morning for them.”)
Beware of some watchmen!
There are some watchmen who are God appointed and right on the mark, but there is a growing group, who are deceived, ignorant of biblical application and dangerous for your spiritual growth.
These false watchmen are themselves an end-time prophetic sign. Bear in mind that the primary sign of the end times is deception in and out of the church – Yeshua.
The true watchman speaks as he hears, not sees. Any idiot can see the news and give an opinion.
These are the tactics used by the dangerous, false watchmen:
- They operate in pride, talking much about themselves.
- Knowingly or not they use fear and scare mongering,
- They are forever crying wolf, and generating false alarms.
- They are never right, and always ignore their wrongfulness.
- They distract from the real truth, by their error and bring confusion.
- They will often hang onto a big error as a repeating hobby-horse.
- They often use verses meant for Israel, for the church – to suit their persuasion.
Error disarms you and leaves you vulnerable. Because error is spirit it conquers you if left unattended. Because this is all rooted in the spirit of error, it can’t produce healthy fruit.
Error can and does rock you faith, especially if you are a new believer!
Some of these YouTube watchmen never get tired of being wrong and never being right! They are an embarrassment and an offence to the truth, cheapening and damaging the prophetic word.
Birds of a feather flock together. Pride in a teacher, bears witness with pride in the listener and you soon have an aviary of parrots.
I once saw an open Landrover full of tourists looking ahead for a lion in the thicket. The lion was there alright, but it came up from behind them! The true watchman looks ahead and also sees the enemy creeping up behind. He perceives the camouflaged enemy too.
The true watchman does not cry wolf all the time. He will cry wolf when the Spirit of God cries wolf. He will see rightly and will see what is of no prophetic consequence. His application of current events to the Bible will be accurate, Spirit led and true.
Thankfully, so many correct warnings have gone out from so many Christians, ministries and churches. It’s mostly from the mature, long-standing, deeply spiritually informed and led. You can just sense it when they speak.
Acts20:31 “I did not cease to warn everyone, with tears.
Micah 4:10 “Be in pain and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in birth pangs...You shall go even to Babylon (type of world). There you shall be delivered. There the Lord will redeem you...”
Isaiah 27:7 “He has struck Israel and He has struck those who struck him.”
Israel has been struck for her rebellion, but bear in mind that God also strikes those that strike Israel.
Do you know what that means? It means that you are a dumb turkey, even if a so-called minister, with assumed authority behind, stolen pulpit, and you come against Israel or try to replace her with the church.
You see, Hitler didn’t just want to get rid of the Jews. He wanted to get rid of them so that he could replace them with a thousand year, one world Nazi rule. That’s just what the ministries of replacement theology are doing too.
All replacement theology in the church is of the antichrist principle of coming against the truth and replacing it with error.
Some more pre-tribulation rapture truths and types:
Did you know that in ancient Israel, the temple doors were left open until the end of the ten days of Atonement, which is symbolised by repentance? This speaks wonderfully of our salvation, but it also speaks of a time limit on the church age.
The time to repent is now!
The Feast of Trumpets contains the promise for the righteous that their names are already written in the Book of Life. It also begins a second period of time given for repentance, called the ten days of Awe. (Yah-meen Norah’eem) which means “the awesome days”, or the “days of trouble.”
This speaks in type of salvation through repentance in operation in the tribulation period, creating the tribulation saints.
Here’s an interesting snippet of rapture typology from the ancient walls of Jericho:
Joshua 6:5 “When you make a long blast with the ram’s horn (shofar) and when you hear the sound of the trumpet that all the people will shout with a great shout; then the wall of the city shall fall and the people shall go up, every man before him.
“Go up” Strong’s H5927: ‘Alah.’ Meanings: Ascend, depart, rise up.
That’s a pretty neat type of the pre-tribulation rapture I would say.
And here is another:
Joshua 6:23 “The young men who had been spies went in (to Jericho) and brought out Rahab, her father, her mother, her brothers and her relatives, and left them outside the camp of Israel.”
In this type, Jericho represents the world.
Rahab and family were Gentiles that had helped Israel defeat Jericho which had tried to prevent them from going to her Promised Land. She and her family were removed before Jericho fell – a type of the pre-tribulation rapture.
This also speaks of the Israel friendly and supportive chuch.
Why the rapture can only take place on a Feast of Trumpets:
One of the names for the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah) is the “day of concealment” or “hidden day.” This is because the feast must start when the new moon is sighted, which can be on either one of two days.
This is why it is called the “hidden day” or feast of which no one knows the day or hour, thus hiding it from Satan.
Here’s the big clincher:
The Feast of Trumpets begins the period known as the ten days of awe (repentance) culminating in Yom Kippur. This is clearly a reference to the tribulation period.
That means that the church age must close first. That means that the rapture must occur as the church age ends, which is on the Feast of Trumpets, when the tribulation begins.
Daniel 2:22 “He reveals deep and secret things.
Matthew 13:35 He will reveal secret things hidden from the foundation of earth.
We need all these amazing truths, as led by the Spirit, to stabilises us, strengthens us, and to receive the power of endurance. These things and fill your life with meaning, purpose and great value.

Shalom and grow in His Grace!
