These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
This verse, below was given to me by our Lord in December last year to give to you as the crowning verse for 2020. This was just before the corona-virus became a world pandemic:
The heading is, “Babylon humiliated.” End-time Babylon is the modern world system:
Isaiah 47:10-11 “You have trusted in your wickedness. You have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you; You have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one besides me.’ Therefore evil shall come upon you and you shall not know from where it arises, and trouble shall fall upon you. You will not be able to put it off, and desolation shall come upon you suddenly.”
Romans 14:11 “For it is written, as I live says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me and every tongue shall confess to God.”
Psalm 86:9 “All nations who you have made, shall come and worship before you, O lord and glorify Your name.”
Psalm 72:11 “Yes, all kings shall fall down before Him, all nations shall serve Him.”
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.
31st July 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Transforming light, life and power:
How do you know that you are solidly in the Lord’s kingdom, saved and growing in Him? What is you measure of salvation and victory?
It really is all about your transformation and it’s working from inside your heart to the outside. Do you have a growing love for holiness or do you still secretly love evil?
So much in the world is falling apart and creating a nightmare of stress and strain.
Growth in the Lord encompasses standing securely, in victory, in times of troubled waters.
A deathly, dark, demonic deception has descended upon the world, painting its beauty with an unholy ugliness.
The raging nights are thick with sick! Even the stars seem sterile and twinkle-less, hiding behind wafts of mysterious mist as we await the great twinkling-eye signal in the clouds.
This is actually the calm before the storm, the storm before the eternal calm. Yes the storm is calm compared to what’s coming and very soon. In fact comparatively, the world is now a teddy bears’ pick nick – a Mickey Mouse party.
Sounds of sirens reverberate, but are gutted and defunded. Their terror has been stolen from them by the terror of insurrection, revolt, mutiny and anarchy.
Romans 13:3 Rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authorities? Do what is good and you will have praise from them...But if you do evil, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain, for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practises evil.”
The cops are to be a terror to evildoers. If not the terrible reversal takes place and the evildoers become the terror to the cops and all civilised society!
The incidents of insurrection are growing, worldwide. The numbers are growing too. Historically, God acts when many people are affected and influenced by an evil work.
There is no safety in the numbers of rebels. There is only real safety in truth, holiness and righteousness.
Like our Lord in hell as a victor, before His resurrection, so we await our resurrection in a world turned to hell on earth.
Why is the champion of love, the God of all grace and mercy hated so much these days?
There is “another Jesus” who is not hated by the world. He has no cross and no Spirit! (2 Corinthians 11:4)
John 7:7 “The world hates Me because I testify that its works are evil.”
John 15:18 “If the world hates you, know that it hated Me before it hated you.”
Psalm 97:10-11 “You who love the Lord, hate evil! He preserves the soul of His saints; He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked. Light is sown for the righteous...”
The modern materialistically orientated church teaches you to “find your life in the world.” (Luke 17:33) They teach you to accept all the things that Satan offered our Lord, and he rejected.
►But, there is great safety in and amongst the ministers of the gospel that are close to our Lord. Those who know Him well, and walk with Him are safe and secure. Their light shines in the dark.
As the world prepares for its new world ruler, soon to emerge, know that there are many that you cannot trust anymore. Politicians, billionaires, businessmen, medical men, media, scientific experts and many worldly religious leaders are all tools of the devil in these days.
The one thing you absolutely cannot do at all these days is trust the media. They are driven by a demon monkey on their backs.
The materialistic orientated churches and all the Spirit-less churches are mostly devoid of any end-time understanding. For that reason alone, you need to be careful of them. It’s also no coincidence that they avoid anything on Israel, and even come against God’s plans for Israel.
►Love for the world of necessity means rejection of Israel! The reason is because Israel is God’s chosen “weapon” to destroy the world.” People may not know that, but spirits do!
God’s light must shine by His Spirit to offer real insight into all things related to Israel.
There are tragic effects of coming against Israel: You will be blinded to the truth, made deaf, have your heart hardened, receive a voice of confusion, and be distressed. You will have your neck under God’s knee and laughed at and scoffed at by God and be broken by Him. (There are verses for all of those things)
It’s no good just having a collection of verses in front of you. You need the light of God to receive His sight and insight, especially today. This is the way of godly metamorphosis.
Only the resurrection power of God through the work of the cross produces godly light and sight which is revelatory and transforming. There is a deceptive light as well, born in pride. Dark light is emitted from the absence of the cross and the Spirit of God.
Lucifer means “light bringer” but his light is dark light. Dark light blinds. “Be careful that the light in you is not darkness.” (Luke 11:35)
Job 18:5 “The light of the wicked indeed goes out, and the flame of his fire does not shine.”
John 9:4 “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.”
1 Corinthians 2:7 “We speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory.”
Things today are headed for a climax. Can you see it?
The end of the new world order is a world built and formed by Satan and with the fruits of Satan: Killing, stealing, destroying and lying. The end of God’s new world – the Millennium is a world built on righteousness, peace, holiness and all things glorious.
►If the world is going to simply recover from the pandemic, which many are hoping for and even some Christians are praying for, and the riots will just go away, and the locust plagues will just disappear, and everyone can get back to their normal life of murdering the unborn, homosexuality and other sin, then that would obviously mean that the rapture / tribulation start is a long way off.
That would mean that “All things are going to continue as they have done.” (2 Peter 3:4)
No, world, your day is done, your cake is cooked, your song is sung!
Jeremiah 50:23 “How the hammer of the whole earth (Babylon / end time world) has been cut apart and broken! How Babylon has become a desolation among the nations!”
You have nothing to lose by surrendering to our Lord now, and everything to gain – for all glorious eternity!
Edition 183. November 22nd 2013
Signs and you:
In this edition I would like to look at a comet, a festival, a tree, a coat and a boat! It’s important to see these things and know how to respond. There are many tragic examples in the scriptures of how people failed to respond to warning signs from God. My hope and prayer for you is that in this regard, history does not repeat itself!
As the coming of our Messiah nears, there will be more and more signs. But we must also be aware that there will be more and more deceptions and “lying signs” out there too; and more and more psychologically disturbed crackpots trying to entrap you.
The biggest “lying sign” that is and will confront the world is that it can have peace without the Prince of peace.
The Signs :
The Bible speaks of numerous signs of our soon-coming Messiah in the skies, on the earth, in the nations, in politics, and of course in Israel. Many of these are occurring right now. One third of the Bible is prophecy-related and most people don’t have the foggiest idea about any of it.
There have been what we could call “signs” many times before, but never have they all dovetailed together as they are now with the big pieces of the puzzle all in place simultaneously.
Here is a list of just some of them:
●Reborn Israel and restored Jerusalem. ●Jews beginning to be saved. ● Many Middle East nations in the birth pangs of their prophesied destruction ●Great deceptions and lukewarmness in the church. ●Natural upheavals intensifying. ●Signs in the skies. ●The arising of homosexuality and unrestrained sin. ●Numerous “Days of Noah and Lot” signs. ●The disinterest of people in their fast approaching judgement.
None of us knows all the signs and the exact timing, but they are speaking loud and clear now. Can you hear the shofar, the warning trumpets blowing, the voice of the Spirit of God speaking, and can you read the messages in the signs?
If not you are on shaky ground, which is all going to be shaken more severely than anyone can imagine, and very soon.
Hanukkah and Ison:
This important feast has two primary meanings: These relate to the great military victory over a Syrian / Greek attack on Israel and the miraculous supply of oil for the Temple menorah.
The incredible military victory occurred when the Maccabees beat the invading forces of the Syrian / Greek armies who tried to invade Israel and impose pagan worship on the Jewish people.
After the military victory, Temple worship was again instituted, but there was only oil enough for one lamp for one day. But a miracle occurred and the oil lasted eight days and nights. This is why Hanukkah is celebrated for eight days and is called the “festival of lights.” It is celebrated with a nine-branched menorah. The raised ninth centre-candle is used to light the other eight.
The festival of Hanukkah, although not a holy convocation, is very important and rich in symbolism. It celebrates God’s miracle working power with Israel. It symbolises the coming Light of salvation for the Jews. It symbolises the Jews being a separated people and has connotations relating to the coming Temple and future military victories.
Hanukkah also speaks of the fact that the Jews, although largely unsaved right now, even went to war to keep themselves separated from paganism. When they come to their Messiah, in large numbers soon, you can be sure that they will not become pagan-filled believers partaking in the likes of Christmas, Easter and other occult practices.
Hanukkah is the Festival of Light, but the Jews are still largely unaware that this feast heralds the coming of the Light of their salvation and the horrific Holocaust-like seven-year tribulation period.
Hanukkah now is very important.
It is no coincidence that comet Ison reaches its brightest at perihelion on Hanukkah this year.
It just may turn out to be the deadly harbinger that the true Light and Lion of destruction is about to return to this world. Sorry, did you think that Yeshua was returning as gentle Jesus meek and mild to offer love, bliss and forgiveness to everyone? You couldn’t be more wrong!
Both Ison and Hanukkah are symbols and signs of the Light returning as the Lion with righteous wrath and fury to this Messiah-rejecting world.
November 29th 1947, 66 years ago saw the signing of the first UN resolution confirming the partition plan (dividing the land). As we well know, dividing the land and the city does not bring peace but war!
So now here we are 66 years later, and the world led by the US is trying its damndest to divide Israel and the City of Jerusalem. Is it coincidence that God is warning now of war as a result. (Joel 3:2)
Jewish people, my friends, brothers and sisters in waiting, do not take these things lightly. Your Light is coming, but will you open your eyes to see, receive and welcome your Messiah? Hundreds of Bible verses prophecy that you will open your eyes, but most will only do so in the Great Tribulation.
The skies will present a cosmic countdown in which many “signs” of various sorts will become evident, but few will even see or understand the signs.
Nahum 1:8 “Darkness will pursue His enemies”.
The most amazing tree in history:
The tree in the image above is an ancient olive tree in Jerusalem. It has been cut off at the top and has new grafted-in wild olive branches springing out of the side (left).
Romans chapter 11 describes this tree. The nutshell version is this: God cut off the true olive branches who He says is the Jews, because of their unbelief. He then grafted in the wild olive branches whom He says are Gentile believers or the Church.
But then comes the gravity of it all. God says that He will again graft in the true olive branches, the Jews, and warns that He will cut off the wild olive branches, the church, if they come against what He is doing with the true olive branches.
This wonderful typology reveals the spectacular plan of God in these days, which is to bring Israel to salvation and join them to the original plan in the glorious tree of God. Gentiles come into the true olive tree; it is not the Jews come into the tree of the Babylon-infected church! Jews are not grafted into the wild olive tree! We all become one in the original true olive tree of God.
This portion of scripture in Romans 11 is a frightening discourse and warning to the growing number of churches now adhering to replacement theology. Your days are numbered!
I can’t tell you how many church leaders, especially those with an inter-faith, slant are anti-Israel in these days.
Joseph’s beautiful coat:
We all know the story of Joseph being sold into slavery and how it backfired on his brothers. But what was the meaning of the coat of many colours and the overall story? We don’t know exactly what colours the coat was made of, but most agree that it contained the seven colours of the rainbow, which are divided into red, blue, green and white. This is symbolic of God’s covenant promise and the seven fold Spirit of God. The red is symbolic of the shed blood of Messiah. The blue is symbolic of His deity and royalty. The green is symbolic of life and the white is symbolic of purity and holiness.
●Genesis 37:3 “Now Israel (Jacob) loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age, also he made him a coat of many colours.” In this verse the term “son of his old age” is literally “the son of the last days.”
This is not only some ancient story. The entire story is for these last days. It is being unfolded even now.
Much later in the story, the brothers came to Egypt and were warned of the coming seven-year famine.
Soon the Jewish people will again go through seven years of tribulation, but in the midst “Joseph” will appear to them and reveal His true identity. The Jewish people will then “put on” the blood-stained coat of great mercy and salvation, as they recognise Yeshua.
Joseph and comet Ison:
Last name: Ison
Sometimes the origin of a surname is quite easy to trace, although as to why it developed in a certain way is not always easy to explain - this is one of them! Recorded in the spellings of Isson, Ison, Izen, Jesson, Yesson, Ysson, and no doubt many others, this is one of the many spellings of the patronymic form of 'Joseph'.
What we have is an association with the name Ison and Joseph. Now we know that Joseph was a type of our Messiah. Comet Ison is already very bright, having the association with light, and we know that our Messiah is also called the “Light of the world.” Ison reaches perihelion on November 28th which is also Hanukkah, the feast or festival of Light.
The sign in this is plain to see, but we must as always be careful of extra-Biblical revelation or signs. Ison will only become a sign if it reaches perihelion without burning up first. It must be on the date.
What is most important is to see that Ison is Joseph, who is Messiah – symbolically of course.
Your response to warning signs:
If you deny or ignore the signs of these fast approaching times, you will obviously not be ready, but you will be in direct contravention of dozens of commands by our Lord. The result is that you will be blinded to the things of God and have eyes only for the world and its deceptions.
Ignore God’s signs and you will be blinded to them and have your eyes opened to see Satan’s signs, which will all be deceptive!
The greatest end time sign of Satan is that the world can have peace by dividing the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem. The deception that we can have world peace man’s way is not far behind.
1 Thessalonians 5:3 “When they say peace and safety, sudden destruction comes upon them as labour pains and they will not escape.”
Deception is the biggest problem of our age. Our Lord warned against deception five times in the Olivet (end-time) discourse!
The other day I had lunch with some old school friends. One of them said, “The Middle East has always been in trouble, there’s no sign in this. Things will carry on!” He is a classic “end-time scoffer”, but the tragedy is that this really is just the same as the majority of people out there.
Noah = comfort!
The Bible likens the end-time scenario to “the days of Noah”. One of the amazing facts about this is that people ignored the warnings. They carried on “living, buying, selling, and marrying” just as always, because they expected things to carry on normally. Their great deception was that they could carry on in their evil and sinful world.
Listen to the conversations of your friends, listen to the media, listen to the politicians – they all talk the rubbish of the continuing world. The world is their god and they can’t or won’t see any further than their noses. They are in bondage and full of all the turmoil and stress of the world. They have scorn for end-time warnings.
Just like the days of Noah they will fall under the judgement of God while those who heeded God’s warnings will ride safely above the judgement.
►Did you know that the meaning of the name Noah is “comfort or rest”? The Bible says that we are to comfort one another with the words of the blessed hope of the soon coming Messiah. What a comfort the rapture will be!
The funny thing is that the Noah story is one of the most scoffed at in the Bible even amongst Christians toady. In the coming days, as in the days of Noah all the rejecters will wish they had accepted “comfort” and “rest”!
Daniel 12:10 “Many shall be purified, made white and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly, and the wicked shall not understand, but the wise will understand.”
Don’t be an idiot because the crowd is!
What you must do:
Those who are awake to the coming of our Lord will be wise and be ready. 1 John 3:3 “Those who have this hope in Him purify themselves.”
In a tragic message to the “dead church” our God says, Revelation 3:3 “If you will not watch I'll come upon you as a thief and you will not know what hour I come upon you.” I hope you noticed who it is that will not know the hour!
●Get rid of your covenant with the Vatican and Babylon. You may not know that many religions including many denominational churches seriously condemn those that have been adult water- baptised. Some will even go so far as excommunication. They reject the identification with the Feasts of the Lord, but insist on the practice of the traditions of hell in Christmas and Easter.
What you need to do is get rid of all association you have with infant sprinkling. Many people when performing adult baptism get the participant to renounce the satanic infant “baptism” they went through, as they are now properly baptised. You need to excommunicate yourself from Babylon! You can do it in your own prayer.
“Leave the daughter of Babylon”. This is spoken ten times in the scriptures, three to Jews and seven to Christians.
Isaiah 47:1-5 “Come down and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon...your nakedness shall be uncovered and your shame will be seen when I take vengeance... Sit in silence and go into darkness.”
Zechariah 2:7 “Up Zion! Escape from the daughter of Babylon.”
Revelation 17: 18 “And the woman whom you saw is that great city (Rome / Babylon) which reigns over the kings of the earth.” The next section is headed “The fall of Babylon the Great.”
Those who will fly high with God are those who will the will and do the will of God.
Will you stand with Israel in her coming days of catastrophe? Ask yourself that question, because soon Israel will stand alone except for small groups of true believers. Will you stand with Israel? Some will say they will but won’t when the pressure is on because they are spineless pushovers and spiritual wimps. Some will stand against Israel believing its God’s will because their deceived, blind, satanically-charged ministers and pastors told them so.
The reason why true believers, Jew and Gentile, will be hated in these days is that they can’t assimilate into the world. Their separation alone speaks against the world. And the world hates them as a response.
Proverbs 29:27 “An unjust man is an abomination to the righteous, and he who is upright is an abomination to the wicked.”
Psalm37:12-13 (Amp) “The wicked plots against the uncompromisingly righteous, the upright who are in right standing with God; he gnashes his teeth at them. The Lord laughs at the wicked for He sees that their own day of defeat is coming.”
What does your life consist of? Do you make your days of eternal value? Most people, Christians included are media-made lovers of celebrity and full of the ways of the world.
My friends, please understand one thing and get it lodged in your heart and mind. You will soon stand before our Messiah. You will. Many will be saved, but will lose all reward as they discover in shock that they were filled with the demons of Hollywood, celebrity, the media and all their ways.
It is so wise to prepare now. Whatever pressures you are facing, they will either defeat you, or turn you into a most valuable diamond.
The suffering of our Messiah on the cross led to His spectacular, magnificent victory and transformation, which will also soon be seen in the glory of all creation as it is liberated. Unspeakable, un-comprehendible beauty and value is about to break forth, and all those who have gone through the cross will shine brightly forever.
Being ignorant of the signs has terrible implications for you. If you are ignorant of them, you will be deceived when the time comes. You will see all Satan’s lying signs.
The signs of the Lord’s coming are primarily found in Israel, simply because it all relates to the Second Coming and the close of the age. It is our job as believers to create and present to the Jewish people a pure Babylon-free gospel. This gospel is to go to the “Jew first,” says the Bible.
Our job is to walk in purity and holiness shaking off the dirt of the world. We are to be thoroughly different from those of the world. Our Messiah will use these ones in these days.
In closing, here are some verses of great importance:
Proverbs 29:18 “Where there is no vision (prophetic revelation) the people cast off restraint.”
Hosea 4:1-2 “There is no truth or mercy or knowledge of God in the land...they break all restraint...therefore the land mourns.”
Psalm 119:53 (Amp) “Burning indignation, terror and horror has taken hold of me, because of the wicked who forsake your law (word).”
Poverbs 25:28 “Whoever has no rule over his own spirit is like a city broken down without wall.”
1 John 3:3 “Whoever has this hope in Him purifies himself.”
Revelation3:3 “If you will not watch I will come upon you as a thief and you will not know what hour I come upon you.”
Isaiah 49:26 “I will feed those who oppress you with their own flesh and they shall be drunk with their own blood as with wine. All flesh shall know that I the Lord am your Saviour and Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.”
Isaiah 51:22-23 “Thus says the Lord your God who pleads the cause of His people; see I have taken out of your hand the cup of trembling, the dregs of the cup of My fury; you shall no longer drink it. But I will put it into the hand of those who afflict you, who have said to you “Lie down that we may walk over you.”
Amos 9:14-15 “I will bring back the captives of My people Israel; they shall build the waste cities and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and drink wine from them; they shall also make gardens and eat from them. I will plant them in their land and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord God.”
I took this picture of this huge Baobab tree with a 40m circumference in the northern regions of South Africa. I used various texture filters and superimposed the butterfly which I also created using various effects. This image speaks of the beauty of being rooted in God and maturing in Him. It also speaks of metamorphosis and transformation.
Psalm 104:24 “O Lord how manifold are Your works! In wisdom you have made them all. The earth is full of Your possessions.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
