|This ministry has a distinct kingdom, Messianic vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for the Jewish people and the church. My position is pre-trib! Personally: I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share these great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God.|
►We have now reached 45 million regular visitors.
►Next Edition, Lord willing: "Golan Gaza and more."
•Live "Breaking News" tickers - click the button top left, or Here.
- Gaza is in the spotlight. Golan is about to be in the spotlight. You may be amazed to see what Bible prophecy reveals about these two regions, as well as the timing. Stay tuned!
- Israel attacks dozens of targets in Gaza in response to their rocket fire into Israel.
- President Trump signs declaration that Golan is Israeli territory, with Netanyahu watching.
- US Republican Party to introduce two new bills outlawing anti-Semitism as the Democrats welcome anti-Semites into their party.
Eternal enemies with an eternal hatred without reason are proof of God’s choice and plan. Satan would not bother with Israel if God had finished with her.
We are seeing a global eruption of the world’s most unfair, “ancient hatred”, now being perpetuated by Islam, The British Labour Party, much of the US Democratic party and almost all of Europe. (Ezekiel 35:5-6, 25:15-16) Ditto for the rising persecution of Christians.
Moses said to Pharaoh, “Let My people go”. The call today is just the same: “Let My people go from anti-Semitism, hostility, persecution and hatred.” Our job as Christian ‘My people,’ is to “Let My people know”!
Isaiah 57:14 “...Prepare the way, take the stumbling block out of the way of My people.”
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah and to identify the rift, and the needed restoration. There is much in the church that needs to change before it can be fully reconciled with the Jew. Likewise, changes in Jewish thinking are also needed.

Shabbat Shalom to all:
The devolution and decline of society:
We have just started the season of the feasts of the Lord, with Purim a few days ago. Purim is all about the failure of Israel’s enemies to defeat her. Purim is centred on Esther, who was chiefly responsible for saving her people. Are you called to be a modern “Esther?” Many readers are!
●Passover April 19-27. ●Pentecost June 8-10 ●Rosh Hashanah Sept 29th October 1st ●Atonement Oct 9. ●Tabernacles October 14-20
The spirit of error, untreated, advances like a cancer and mutates into a curse. Teachers or leaders who’ve fallen under a curse then become cult-like with an equally deceived following. I have witnessed many people fall right into this trap of late.
Some have turned on me with a vengeance calling me various names because I don’t and won’t support their doomed error, and because I warned them many times!
When you constantly resist and reject the things of God in favour of error, or rampant sin, you get “handed over.” (Romans 1:24-26) At this point, pride takes control and your conscience is seared and your free will becomes an enslaved, slave, controlled and dominated by the god of sin.
Enduring error, because it is a spirit, produces strife, stress and argument with God. “There is no peace for the wicked,” (Isaiah 48:22) no matter how much they cry, “Peace, peace!” (Ezekiel 13:10)
As goes the spiritual, so goes the natural! This is a spiritual principle. A lot of the reason for the chaotic, devolving world is the compromise of the modern church! For example the sequel or fallout of replacement theology in the church is seen in anti-Semitism in the world.
When God and His word are cast down by society, it has terrible knock-on effects. The nation begins to fall. A nation under God does not mean a born-again nation as such. It is a nation which has employed, elevated, and respects general godly biblical principles for a nation.
Throw God’s word out and the slippery slope of doom begins. Life becomes valueless except as a political football to score points, as we see so clearly in the mass-media.
The world walks over God’s word, which they have cast down. But the believer walks through God’s word ingesting it, consuming it and filling himself with wisdom and light!
In a world where God has been cast out, godless educational institutions become the gates of hell for the youth.
When God is removed from society, law becomes lawlessness driven by the law of sin and death. The church becomes a democracy and a dead tool of the system. When you forsake the law you are a law unto yourself and “yourself,” is fully blinded to spiritual reality.
When God and His word are cast down, Israel would have to fit in with the world-system and submit to the evil god of inter-faith and to Islam’s goal. The Jews would become nothing more than political chess-men, and Jerusalem becomes the devil’s pawn.
When God and His word are removed from society, the true born-again Christian must also be rejected or removed by persecution and martyrdom.
When God’s word is cast down, salvation becomes a mere, dead word and nothing more than a change in political ideology to suit the god of the world and his doomed hordes.
Right now we are seeing a massive worldwide spike in the martyrdom of Christians. The mass-media keeps their biased mouths closed, resulting in few being aware of it.
The mass-media hates God and His own. Their bias has turned from prejudice to hostility and now open hatred. This is clearly seen in their silence on the massive increase in the killing of innocent Christians worldwide.
►For the true Christian, martyrdom is the ultimate slap in the face for their murderers and supporters by the surrogation of silence. The martyr is promised special eternal reward, over and above other rewards he will receive.
The martyr dies, but receives the eternal Crown of Life!
It is the unsaved Jew, the Muslim, the counterfeit Christian, and the like, who should weep and howl and mourn with many tears when they are killed or die. They are not saved. Don’t cry for the true Christian martyr! Cry for yourself, lying mass-media, and destroyers - you are the ones who need a lot more than sympathy!
Here are just a few verses I’ve put together which succinctly describe the course of this present world. I’ve not included any comment. They speak volumes:
●Those who forsake the word (law of God) will praise the wicked”. (Proverbs 28:4) ●“There is no truth or mercy, or knowledge of God in the land, people break all restraint, with bloodshed after bloodshed and the land mourns.” (Hosea 4:1-2) ● Righteousness stands afar off, for truth has been cast down in the street”. (Isaiah 59:14) ●“Horror has taken hold of me because of the wicked who forsake your word (the law of God)”. (Psalm 119:53).
2 Thessalonians 2:11 “For this reason (not receiving the love of the truth), God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie.”
Job 38:15 “From the wicked their light is withheld...”
Psalm 36:9 “In your light we see light.”
You can’t live in peace in error! You can’t make peace with the devil, especially on his terms, and in violation of God’s word. There is a peace with the devil, which comes about when he has conquered a human heart, he has victory then, but it is the victory of hell. (Isaiah 14:9)
Psalm 43:3 “Send out Your light and Your truth; let them lead me and bring me to Your holy hill.”
Psalm 60:4 “You have given a banner to those who fear You, that it may be displayed because of the truth, that your beloved may be delivered.

May you be blessed of our Lord, Saviour, Father and Great God and be inspired in some way to move forward into the glorious things He has prepared for you.

●Dire USA warning
●Why the Iran election result was no surprise
Isaiah 62:1 "For Zion's sake I will not shut up and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until her Righteousness goes forth as brightness and her salvation burns as a lamp. The gentiles shall see your righteousness"
These are headlines and news snippets that have some prophetic significance, which I discuss briefly in the "commentary" section below. Very little of this will be found in the mass media.
●The US may stop supporting Israel at the UN. Obama says this may be the best way to punish Netanyahu because of his refusal to to meet his demands on the abolishment of settlements.(Israel Today June 1st)
●Obama reshuffles America's Middle Eastern allies
●US to send military team to Syria. This is to improve relations. But some analysts see it as a strategic move to further ring-fence Israel. (Reuters)
●Now the US tries to stop Israel from building a hotel on it's municipal owned land in Jerusalem, calling it a "settlement" (AP)
●Israeli PM says, "we will not stop settlements for natural growth, despite Obama's pressure" (Jerusalem Post)
●Obama says Iran has the right to have nuclear power (Washington Post June 2nd)
●Iran could have a nuclear bomb this year, says report in Israel Today (June 1st)
●Russian expert says nuclear bomb catastrophe "inevitable" (Professor Vladimir Kulagin, Moscow University)
●Iran now has enough low-grade uranium for a single nuclear bomb.(IAEA 5thJune)
●IAEA finds more uranium at second site in Iran (June 6th)
●Obama to Netanyahu: So, what about my peace plan? The US intends "strong arming" Israel into accepting their peace plan within two years. (Netanyahu aide)
●Israeli PM Netanyahu to make major policy speech within days. Hamas to make major policy announcement next week.
●Ahmadinejad wins Iran election.
Iran: The Iran election results were no surprise. Ahmadinejad is now back at the helm and ready to fulfil his ill-fated destiny. He believes that he is the forerunner to the coming of the Islamic Mahdi who will unite the Islamic world and form an army to defeat all the enemies of Islam.
His mystical pre-occupation with the so-called coming of the Mahdi and his desire to eliminate Israel places him in the same position as the Nazi dictator. This makes him an extremely dangerous character who could trigger all sorts of prophetic events.
Iran's Ahmadinejad seen skipping through the fields after his election win:
The headlines I have chosen above are only a small snippet of thousands all declaring much the same thing. When you see one or two headlines you may miss the significance and if you don't know at least the basics of Bible prophecy, you will definitely miss the significance.
I have deliberately chosen and presented these headlines like this, because they make the significance a lot clearer. It is not just this presentation though, there are so many other things all dove-tailing together now, that the situation is becoming a little more than URGENT. (Have a look at the headlines in previous editions as well, they add more weight to these issues).
America, be warned your days are numbered! "Mene, mene, tekel, upharsin" These strange words became known as the "writing on the wall " from God warning of Babylon's soon demise. Daniel interpreted them as, "God has numbered your days and brought you to an end, you are weighed in the balances and found wanting" Mighty unsinkable Babylon came to an end just after this.
Aspects of America could be described as modern Babylon. It's judgement is long overdue because it's modern Christians have become tolerant of all things evil. In the name of tolerance tyranny now awaits them. There has been one and only one reason why the USA has remained largely free, prosperous and secure in the face of their evil, and this is simply because they have been a bit more than a friend to Israel. They have the stood by Israel in their six wars since independence and in many other ways. God has blessed America for being Israel's primary friend and He has stayed long overdue execution for all their incredible evils. (God says if you bless Israel you will be blessed and if you cures Israel you will be cursed)
Now the story is changing before our eyes and it is changing fast! The one thing that has been the salvation of the USA is now being eroded. America, the writing is on the wall, for you now!
America's Obama is shifting allegiances in the name of world peace. He is not only turning his back on Israel, as he tries to befriend the Arab world, he is actually obstructing Israel's own future.
Another thing worth remembering is that peace means different things to different people. Peace to the world of Islam means, an Islamic world. Peace to Islam means surrender of everything that is not Islamic. Islam believes it is the final work of God and He is now finished with Moses and Jesus and therefore the Jews and the Christians have no legitimacy. You don't believe me? I dare you to research it!
Peace with the true, living God comes from knowing Him, being known by Him and following Him and His ways.
Don't get me wrong, I love America. It has done more for the world in terms of science, technology, medicine, evangelism, and just about everything you can think of, it's evils aside. But all of this is about to come crumbling down as they run headlong into the fury of God. No it won't happen in five minutes, but time is short!
The Bible declares that Gods anger will arise as the nations try to divide the land of Israel. This will bring war and not peace! (Joel 3) and dividing or "moving" Jerusalem will bring all nations into conflict (Zachariah 13)
It's not just America though, in fact they are late arrivals. Most of the nations of the world are now on this deadly road as they unite to pressurise Israel into a satanically inspired soon coming disaster. The nations of the European Union were the main instigators of the world's roadmap to peace, and have now been joined by the US.
Isn't it interesting that the EU headquarters as seen from above is in the shape of the satanic broken cross or so-called peace sign:
If you don't already know, let me remind you that this sign is not the peace -sign it is the hell-sign! It originates from satanic worship and occult practices where the arms of a cross are broken, representing rejection of the true cross and it's meaning.
The roadmap to peace is the roadmap to war:
Why then is the world's "roadmap" the path to war and not peace for the Middle East? Well, it's simple...God's word declares the land of Israel (all of it) was given by Him in an "eternal" covenant to the Jews. The covenant, which includes the blood line of our Jewish Messiah comes through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and not Ishmael (Arabs). Part of the plan of God for the close of the age involves the Jews in their land, coming to salvation and being the bearer of truth that they were originally called to be.
There is a often miss-applied portion of scripture in Romans 11 which speaks of the calling of God being without repentance. The correct application and context (derived from previous verses) is referring to the calling of God to Israel. It will be completed!
In the Bible we see the Abrahamic, Davidic covenants and others all with reference to the Jewish people in their God-given land and it's all for God's own grand purpose. Modern man's roadmap to peace is perhaps one the greatest deceptions of our day and flies in the face of God's choice.
Just have a look at these incredible portions of scripture relating to the land of Israel and Gaza! Talk about throwing a cat amongst the pigeons!
Joshua 15 speaks of the inheritance of the children of Judah which includes Gaza!
Amos 1:6,7 speaks of the destruction of Gaza because they (Philistines) tried to take it captive. vs13 widens this to include other Arab nations, who "will be destroyed because they tried to enlarge their territory" (The Philistines relate to the Palestinians. In fact in Greek the word Philistinos is the same as Palestinian)
Zech 9:5 and on speaks of the fact that Gaza will be very sorrowful and it further says that God will cut off the "pride of the Philistines"
Judges 2:1,2 "I led you from Egypt and brought you to the land which I swore to your fathers and said I will never break My covenant with you, and you shall make no covenant with the inhabitants of this land. You shall tear down their alters..."
This amazing portion of scripture foreshadows the terrible and tragic, soon coming peace treaty to be signed between Israel and the person who will be revealed then as the antichrist. This will launch the most severe judgements of God on the world ever known to man called the "tribulation". The first three and a half years will see terrible geological upheavals, with a dangerous socio-political peace and then all hell breaks out in every sphere for the remaining three and half years.
Ezekiel 11:17-19 "I will gather you from the nations and peoples where you have been scattered and I will give you the land of Israel...then I will put a new spirit within them and take out the stony heart out of their flesh"
A frightening portion of scripture declares that the person that will become the antichrist will "divide the land of Israel for gain" Dan11:39 This will most probably be related to the coming peace treaty.
Ps 83:4, "Come let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more." Oh yes, we will see!
The world has forgotten that the Bible also declares in Zechariah 51:19,20 "Israel is the tribe of His inheritance and you are my battle-axe and weapons of war, with you I will break the nations in pieces"
Zechariah 2:8 Speaking of Israel "He who touches you touches the apple of My eye"
Here is a very interesting snippet of information: The Nazi's tried to destroy the Jews and they were destroyed. The US actually helped in their destruction by putting an end to the second world war with an atom bomb or two. Germany was already finished by this stage, but the US was involved anyway. Very shortly afterwards, the US was involved in the most amazing fulfilment of prophecy by setting up the UN whose, first major act was to pass a resolution recognising a Zionist state...the nation of Israel. Yes that's right! The UN actually gave birth to the Israeli state.
A few days later the Arabs revolted and the war of independence broke out. A small ill-equipped rag- tag army crushed many invading Arab nations. The US came to Israel's aid then and in all the wars since. Israel with the help of God and the US won all six wars against incredible odds.
Now the story is changing fast as the US changes it's tune and the UN, the EU and the rest of the world all turn their backs on Israel.
We are now seeing the futile attempts of the whole world to bring about peace, which will result in catastrophic judgements from God and it's not far off!
Gods roadmap leads through the golden gate of His choosing into peace and glory now and in time to come.
I did say last time that I would present you this time with a teaching on the "the timing of the coming of our Lord and saviour. It is not quite ready, so you will get it next time.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and hang in there!
