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 523: May 26th 2020.
Great Mountain Peaks:
These are the words of life!
I have often stood on top of a high mountain and looked across the range, spotting the peaks towering out of the mist. Mountain peaks speak! They say, “Look at me”!
This edition is a broad, sweeping view across the major peaks of prophecy.
The mountains are always there, they represent stability, strength and beauty. From the mountains came the Law, the Sermon on the Mount, the Olivet discourse, the Ascension, the Transfiguration, and much more.
I’ve identified the progressing, great drama of all time, culminating in these end times, as seen by the prophets of old. Many of the prophesied dramas have come to pass. Many are occurring right now, and some are still ahead.
The best way to look at a fine painting is to stand back away from it, so that you can see the overall picture, not concentrating on all the finer brush strokes.
The unarguable conclusion in all of this is that Bible prophecy is real, true, trustworthy, inerrant, informative, and predictive with 100% accuracy.
What is your measure of truth? We know CNN’s measure is what the world and its god says. The Interfaith movement’s measure is unity. Islam’s measure relates to world domination. The new world order’s measure is control and resulting false peace.
The measure of most people’s truth is what they think, based on group think! It is – Me, myself and I. Me now – I am!
►Those who are spiritually led and wise, have as their measure and strong anchor, the mountain peaks of Bible prophecy.
The mountain peaks are:
●The Law given on Mount Sinai. ●The cross of Calvary. ●The church age born at Pentecost. ●The Rapture of the church, the rewarding of the church, and the marriage feast. ●The salvation of the Jews. ●The seven-year Tribulation and advent of antichrist and the wrath of God. ●The Second Coming of Messiah. ●The Millennium. ●The final new heaven and earth.
The mountain peaks are also echoed in the seven feasts of the Lord and their prophetic fulfilment:
●Passover (The cross). Unleavened bread (Sinless perfection). Firstfruits (Resurrection). (●Pentecost (Church age) (May 31) ●Rosh Hashanah (Rapture Trib start) (Sept 19th 20th) ●Atonement (Wrath of God) (September 28). ●Tabernacles (Second Coming / Millennium) (October 3)
●The great drama is reflected in the seven dispensations through which the world has gone. (Ephesians 1:10, Ephesians 3:2, Hebrews 1:1, Colossians 1:25.)
The great drama moves from:
●Fall of man at Eden to the cross to the resurrection and to re-creation.
●The drama is seen from the Exodus to the Second Exodus, to the Promised Land to the Promised Land of salvation for Israel.
●The drama is seen in the creation of the church to it’s great apostasy in the dark ages, to the failure of the church in its divisions (denominations). ●It is seen in the victory of the church in great evangelism and the ultimate victory of the church. ●It is seen in the broad sweeping view of paradise lost to paradise restored, from Genesis to Revelation.
The major mountain peaks for today are God’s plan for Israel, including their birth as a nation, suddenly, in one day in 1948. (Isaiah 66:8) The restoration of Jerusalem in 1967. The soon coming spiritual birth of Israel after the rapture, and a great worldwide revival.
The mountain peaks are seen in the mounting sin, evil and wickedness of man too:
They are seen from the Flood to Babel, to Rome, to the tribulation, to the Great White Throne judgement of all the wicked dead.
The mountain peaks of sin are also seen in:
●Hell. ●The bottomless pit. ●Hades. ●Sheol. ●The eternal lake of fire. ●Outer darkness. ●Torment. ●The prison of torment. ●The doom of sinners.
All of these events were seen and written down by the prophets of old in the Bible. They have all come to pass literally (except for those awaiting fulfilment), that is the pattern.
The great plan of God:
Bible prophecy must be your primary guiding force and light in these dark, dingy, dangerous days, through to eternal light of life. All the mountain peaks of prophecy collectively, are the plan of God for the ages and show us the way.
The kingdom of God is sin-free. It is holy, healthy, wealthy and well. It always has been and always will be. It is a kingdom of great victory. And it is you, judged, refined and made new, that will be part of this great eternal kingdom.
Did you know that you are great? You may have some rat characteristics in you now, but they are in the outer fleshly life, which is soon to go the way of all rats.
You are a piece of useless dirty rubbish. You are a most valuable, precious, spectacular being. The former is of the flesh unredeemed, and the latter of the Spirit.
That’s God’s plan for you!
The great plan of the devil:
Obviously the satanic forces out there attack the will, word and plans of God. Satan tries to bring in confusion, disruption, lies and error.
Satan is called the “god of this world.” His most effective tool of deception is the voice of the world – the mass media. Today it is becoming a huge mountain peak of evil.
The following paragraph is a compilation of verses relating to the mass media (scribes).) It paints a consistent, incredible, so relevant picture of the media today.
●They spoke against God. ●Woe to the scribes, full of dead men’s bones, you shut up the kingdom of heaven for men and neither do you enter. ●The scribes were indignant at the wonderful things the Lord did therefore they sought to kill Him. ●The Lord sent warnings to them by His messengers, but they despised the warning and scoffed at the prophets, until the wrath of God arose with no remedy. ●Look at the false pen of the scribe, they have rejected the word of the Lord, therefore they have no wisdom. ●The Lord has shut their eyes so that they do not understand. ●They do not speak aright, they went their own way. ●Truth has been cut from their mouth. ●Truth has fallen in the street.
Here are some of the verses I’ve used for the paragraph above:
Jeremiah 7:28, 8:6-9, Isaiah 44:18, Isaiah 59:14, Matthew 21:15, 23:13, 27, Luke 22:2 Psalm 78:19, 2 Chronicles 36:16, Proverbs 17:15
The mass-media will soon be caught in their own traps! - Watch and see.
The prognosis for the world is not good, but the Bible said exactly that numerous times, 4000 years ago, and then 2000 years ago, so what’s new! Of course that really upsets people who have and are finding their lives in the world.
We are just starting to enter extreme “perilous times” (2 Timothy 3:1). Interestingly the original word for “perilous times” is Strong’s G5467, meaning: “Fierce, harsh, savage times of stress.
The broad overview of the mountain peaks shows the failure of man to create a world of peace and victory. We are now on the brink of the greatest failure of man and his world ever. The cause is the incarnation of pride, rebellion, and failure to repent.
►We are on the brink of the great victory of the God-man – the true church.
Mountain peaks of deception:
The greatest end-time sign our Lord warned against was deception (Matthew24:34)
Did you know that the Bible speaks of truth and error travelling together.
There are two white horse riders, two lions, two lambs, two princes, two kings, two kingdoms, two crowned rulers, two Lords. Two brides, two raised from the dead, two banquets, two bloodlines.
You need to dig into these “mountains” to see truth and deception side by side.
One of the great mountain peaks of deception unfortunately is right in the church. It is the host of false prophets, false teachers, blinded in their pride. The most damaging being false prophecy and teaching relating to Israel.
In these end times the Bible speaks of the “Lord’s watchmen seeing eye to eye” as Israel is regathered. (Isaiah 52:8) At the same time, massive deception is striking the church, through false watchmen and teachers, forever getting it wrong.
The mountain peak called Israel:
Whatever Israel does, knowingly or not, it can’t assimilate into the new world order. God has ordained it to be so:
Numbers 23:9 “From the hills, I behold him, (Israel) a people dwelling alone, not reckoning itself among the nations.”
You see, Israel is a mountain peak hidden in the mist. But the mist is clearing. Many are awakening to God’s incredible plan for the close of the ages, and it’s all happening now. What a privilege we have to see it, and become part of it. Thank you Lord!
We are on the verge of great miracles occurring for Israel. Something is about to transpire, suddenly that will cause them to see, recognise and welcome their Messiah.
Don’t you think it’s interesting that the “sign” spoken of below, causes Jews to become evangelists to the Gentiles?
Isaiah 66:19 “I will set a sign among them (Jews)...they shall declare My glory among the Gentiles.”
Isaiah 66:8 “Who has heard of such a thing, shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once?”
Zechariah 3:9 “...I will remove the iniquity of that land (Israel) in one day.”
So, what could this “sign” be that causes such an awakening amongst the Jews? It can only be the rapture of the church, because evangelism is the duty of the church – now missing.
It’s because of the time period we are in prophetically, that everything is important and is adding up to paint a clear picture.
The big reason for the plagues of Egypt was because Pharaoh would not initially “let My people go.” Now we are faced with the coming of the same plagues, but now spoken of in the Revelation, and the reason is the same.
The world must get its hands off Israel.
The mountain peaks that were hidden in the mist are now emerging, to take part in the final role.
The new normal:
Many churches are prophesying that all these virus troubles will go away and we can return to normal. They want to go back to normal where ministers can fleece their flock, ignore the mass murder of the unborn, support the redefining of marriage and support the moral decay, and big sin of the world, and come against God’s plans for Israel.
What does the new normal look like: For the Christian the new normal is a repentant normal! That would be mainly repentance for accommodating the big sins of the world and being silent on them.
For the unsaved, the new normal is a life of continued, worsening sin and degeneration, pushing the limits of sin as if there is no God. God has held back until now, but now He answers with judgement.
The world’s view of wanting to return to normal, or the way things were is in fact nothing but defiance of God!
Acts 17:30 “These times of ignorance, God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent.” (Acts 14:16)
There is always safety in repentance, and danger in refusing to.
The mountain of temptation:
There is some significance to the temptation of our Lord on a mountain peak by the devil. Satan offered our Lord food, drink and all the material wealth of the world, which were his to give to Yeshua. Our Lord declined and rebuked Satan.
Far too many prancing preaches offering their flock all the materialism of the world. They are teaching their people to “find their lives in the world” (Matthew 10:39)
They are teaching their flock to glorify the flesh rather than crucify it.
Of course there is nothing wrong with material possessions, as long as it’s all kept in subservience to the cross.
It is the pride of life that motivates many of these preachers. (1 John 2:16)
The non-negotiable God:
There are many things that we can say are not cast in stone for us, in a legalistic manner. God’s will allows us to have much flexibility in what we do. But there are some things, especially the bigger issues of life that are not variable and are dogmatic.
Beware, our loving gentle Lamb is also the Lion of the tribe of Judah (Jews), and He is starting to roar.
On many occasions, sometimes on foot, I have looked at close range into the eyes of a lion, out in the wilds. I tell you this: A lion’s roar takes your breath away, but looking into its eyes at close quarters is thrilling, shocking and terrifying. You can see its soul! You immediately start questioning your salvation!
There is also something wonderful and terrifying about the walk of a lion in the wild. He just goes where he wants. His walk is a swaggering, strutting march! His walk is so confident its frightening!
There is something about that roar, those eyes and that walk! You don’t negotiate with them unless your name is Daniel!
Our Lord is a Gentle Giant. He is a Lamb, but He is a Lamb that roars, bites and devours too, if you get on the wrong side of Him and you have pushed Him to the limits of forgiveness.
He is a Lamb whose name is Lion!
Hosea 11:10 “They shall walk after the Lord. He will roar like a lion. When He roars then His sons shall come trembling from the west.”
Of course He is no Lion to His own. He is our God, our Father, out Friend and our Lover. But there must still be in us an awareness of His awesomeness and an understanding of His ways with a world running low on grace.
We are absolutely blessed, safe, secure, accepted and loved in the fear of the Lion!
2 Peter 3:11-12 “Since all these things will be dissolved what manner of persons ought you to be looking for and hastening the coming of the Lord”.
What sort of person are you? Are you preparing yourself in holiness and godliness, looking for the coming of God?
Possibly the corona virus will gradually dissipate and disappear on its own. People will be happy and return to their despicable normal. Possibly a vaccine will be discovered and people will rejoice worshipping their virus-saviour and return to their despicable normal. These scenarios will not divert our Lord. They will result in new terrors of judgement.
The winning scenario: Masses will repent and get saved (as they are already). Many casual Christians will return to the Lord like a prodigal with his pants on fire. All the stupid people of the world will continue in their despicable ways and judgement will fall on their heads. It is impossible for unsaved man to escape coming judgement.
The greatest mountain peak of prophecy seen by the patriarchs, the prophets, the apostles and our Lord Himself and revealed in the Old Covenant and New is the wonderful end for all true believers.
The conclusion in all of this is that your life is not on some haphazard journey. It is all a part of the grand prophetic scheme of things. You can trust Bible prophecy supremely.
Oh yes, did I say it? The rapture is very near!!
This is a mix of some of my pictures of a white rhino and baobab trees.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 522: May 19th 2020.
Love not the world:
These are the words of life!
Where do you live? If your home is on this earth, I have some bad news for you. If not, I have some wonderful news for you. Some of you are now thinking, ‘what is he talking about’, and some are thinking, ‘I know exactly what he is talking about’.
I borrowed the title “Love not the world” from a Watchman Nee book – one of the best. And he borrowed the title from the Bible. (1 John 2:15) But this is not a summary of the book, it contains some of the same principles, but this is very much for us today.
There is one safe place to live. It is in the secret place of the Most High with the knowledge, understanding and the wisdom of God, and His now-speaking word by His Spirit. (Psalm 91:1)
By definition the world is the socio-political, economic and life-style order adorning the earth, which is the physical planet
The world is reaching the culmination of the greatest drama of all time. The world teeters like a target tin, shot down, mortally wounded, moaning and groaning as it goes down.
The world will soon end up where it is heading!
Why are we to “love not the world?”
1 John 2:15 “Do not love the world or the things of the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”
Romans 12:2 “Be not conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind...”
1 John 5:19 “The whole world lies under the grip of the evil one”.
Revelation 12:9 “He (antichrist) has deceived the whole world.”
John 12:31 “Now is the judgement of this world; now the ruler will be cast out.”
The world was doomed the moment Adam sinned. The curse upon Adam went into the earth and the world-system created by Adam’s offspring. Nothing can fix it. You can make it look pretty, but that’s like putting a smile on a dead persons face before he goes into the crematorium.
We are to ‘love not the world’ because it has been hijacked by Satan and is devoid of the purifying work of the cross. It is at enmity with God.
The world is alive. Its spirit lives within it with a host of demons, and they all serve their god, Satan. The world was meant to be full of miraculous majesty and glory, but it has been locked up and imprisoned by Satan and his hordes of demons.
We are to ‘love not the world’, but we are to love its people in terms of getting them saved, and we are to love God’s natural creation, and dogs.
Forerunners of the four riders:
There are ominous fiery storm dark clouds surrounding the locked down world, now emerging into its soon-coming tribulation. Little horses are running, ahead of the big horrible horses.
God warns before judgement. The four big riders of the apocalypse in Revelation are metaphorical riders of enormous judgements on the world throughout the tribulation period.
The four riders of the apocalypse soon to ride are:
●The white horse, crowned rider, which speaks of great worldwide deception. ●The red horse who takes peace from the earth with the sword of war. ●The black horse rider carries a pair of scales, saying ‘A quart of wheat for a denarius and three quarts of barley for a denarius’, which speaks of famine induced hyper inflation. ●The pale horse speaks of worldwide death and hell and killing with the sword, plagues, hunger and death and by beasts.
At the Olivet discourse our Lord repeats these same signs as the primary signs of the end, with a few extras thrown in like earthquakes. Other passages also list the same signs.
The major signs of judgement are: deception, war, famine, hunger, pestilence, plagues, and economic trouble. Earths upheavals would fall under the general category of the rider of death.
We are now seeing the release of the forerunners to these catastrophes as a warning of things to come!
So, if these are the judgements soon to be released with far greater intensity than ever seen before, what on earth would be the cause?
The big universal sins that bring judgement are: ●The mass murder of the unborn or innocent. ●The destruction of God’s order for a strong nation under God, which includes God’s definition of marriage and family. ●Universal moral decay. ●Coming against Gods plan for Israel. ●The support of some of the church of these things.
The people of the world encourage each other to participate in these sins.
1 John 4:5 “They are of the world, therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them.”
The grand failure:
The world with all its intelligence, has tried to build the world since Adam.
●The Stone Age failed. ●The Babylonian Age failed. ●The Age of Noah failed. ●The Empire Ages failed. ●The Catholic-created Dark Ages failed. ●The Reformation failed. ●The Renaissance failed. ●The Industrial Revolution failed. ●The Age of Enlightenment failed. ●The Space Age and Atomic Age failed. ●The Information Age failed. ●The post-modern age failed and now ●The Post-God Age has failed.
(By the way, the Reformation did succeed in bringing the church out of the dark ages, but failed in that it produced division - denominations.)
Most of these ‘ages’ produced enhancements but failed to bring about world peace, unity and love.
We are now in the end stage of the last of these ‘Ages’ – the Post-God Age. Modern man has booted God out of society and now the boot is on God’s foot!
All through all the ages, another ‘age’ or kingdom has been there side by side all along. This is the eternal, invincible glorious holiness-based kingdom of God. You can only be born into this kingdom. You can’t even see it if not born again. (John 3:3)
It is not only the Adamic life that ends through the cross, but also the Adamic world. It is Adam’s proud flesh trying to build a new world order of peace and trying to reach God that dies with you on the cross. Nothing of the old world, to which you have died, is resurrectable.
The world can meet us and get along fine with us, until they meet Messiah in us. Then the waters are stirred! Sometimes the world in its hypocrisy tries to imitate the things of God, but their good works are soon seen to be dead and stinking, like filthy rags.
You need spiritually opened eyes and ears to understand these things. Note in the verse below that it is God who causes spiritual blindness upon the Messiah rejecting world.
John 9:39 “For judgement I have come into this world, that those who do not see may see, and those who see may be made blind.”
Attainable victory for some:
1 John 5:4-5 “Whatever is born of God, overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world - our faith.”
Most people today have moved so far off course they have a long hard journey to get back, and a huge amount to forsake and change in their lives and beliefs.
With too many the attachment to the world is too strong to break and they will go down with it.
Pride is the underlying reason for the refusal to accept a godly worldview.
In a world of increasing sin, stress follows. People are now under severe stress in many ways. Stress is a feeling of weight bearing down, a narrowing, constricted path with walls closing in, and the inability to get out, People have no place to hide, they have lost control. Stress lingers like a dark cloud over people. They feel locked up.
Here is the answer in one sentence: To find new resurrection life, you must lose your life in the world! Die to it through the work of the cross and the help of the Spirit. Then new life implanted in you will begin to arise with all its good fruits.
2 Corinthians 4:17-18 “Our light affliction which is but for a moment, is working for us a far exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen, for the things which are seen are temporary and the things not seen are eternal.”
The release of the antichrist:
The world will not only run into God’s wrath, it will run into Mr. Anti-God – the antichrist, soon to be released, in all his destructive wonder.
The world is now prepped for the great deceiver to walk onto the stage.
Daniel 11:21 “In his place shall arise a vile person (antichrist) to whom they will not give the honour of royalty; but he shall come in peaceably and seize the kingdom by intrigue.
Daniel 8:25 “Through his cunning he (antichrist) shall cause deceit to prosper...and shall magnify himself in his heart (pride). He shall destroy many in their prosperity. He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without human hand.”
The verse below is insightful as look into it. It contains an interesting hidden gem:
2 Thessalonians 2:7-8 “The mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains, will do so until He is taken out of the way. And then (immediately), the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth...”
►The restrainer is the Spirit-filled church. The phrase “and then” in the original contains the thought of immediacy. It is “and then, immediately.” That rules out the incorrect view that there will be a long gap between the rapture and the revealing of the antichrist, to say nothing of the mess that causes with dispensations, the feasts and other prophecies.
The antichrist is released immediately after the rapture, at the start of the tribulation.
The world will be responsible for its own destruction and will crash down like the final act of Samson, like the final Babel falling. The world is unable to walk on stormy water.
Isaiah 1:4-5 “Alas sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a brood of evildoers, children who are corruptors! They have forsaken the Lord...Why should you be stricken again? You will revolt more and more. The whole head is sick and the whole heart faints...”
Democracy is doomed -it will vote God out!
There is only one way the unsaved world can create and live in world peace: The world must kill God, because He identifies and judges sin, and He is bringing in true peace without sin in its core, to supersede all efforts of the world through the ages.
A biblical world-view sees a nation under God. Democracy sees a nation under man with the separation of church and state entrenched. (Jeremiah 17:9) A nation under man is a nation under Satan, at the end of the day.
It’s not good manners to call someone’s mother a whore. The world calls itself, “mother earth.” But look what God calls it:
God refers to the world as the “mother of all whores”! (Revelation 17:5) (If you haven’t discovered it by now – God cares nothing for political correctness!)
The god of modern man is democracy. It authorises the heart of man, which is “desperately wicked.” Truth is cast out in the street. (Isaiah 59:14)
Democracy continues to vote God out. That will very soon make way for the greatest dictator ever to take control of the democrats, left behind!
The kingdom is coming – God’s way!
The kingdom of God is coming on the wings of war and numerous great upheavals.
Just a taste of the age to come, the kingdom of God, is powerful. It produces loss of taste for the things of this world.
It is impossible to love this age and be a successful Christian. If you do, you must be an enemy of the cross, because it separates world from the kingdom. God won’t change or fix the world. He delivers us from it, boots and all.
●John 18:36 “My kingdom is not of this world.” ●John 3:3 “Unless you are born again you cannot see the kingdom of God” (or the world). ●1 Corinthians 15:50 “Flesh and blood cannot enter the kingdom of God” ●Hebrews 12:28 “The kingdom of God cannot be shaken.”
We can of course live successfully in this world, within our calling, with the cross at work keeping us neatly socially distanced from the corona (crown) of worldliness and its god, while we wear an invisible mask protecting us from the breath of the devil. Our great vaccine is the word of God infiltrating our blood with the pure sin-free blood of the Lamb.
At the new birth, you are not made a better person. You are killed in spirit and born anew! So too must the world be to you. At the new birth you have an automatic birth right to the eternal victorious kingdom of God.
A new holy world is coming but only after judgement. Holy Ground is the meaning of the word “Ararat”, on which the ark of Noah landed, after judgment.
Galatians 6:14 “...The world has been crucified to me and I to the world.” (John 8:23)
The cross kills the world to you. It’s a two-way death. The world thinks we are dead to it and useless to it, and we think of it, we are dead to it and it is useless to us.
Be careful of finding your life in the world. Be careful of ministries that have a money and materialism motivation or centrality. They are devoid of the cross! They are many!
When the world is under spiritual influence, material things fulfil their proper subordinate role. Released from this restraint, they manifest the illegitimate power behind them and become ripe for judgment.
The world is Satan’s tarnished masterpiece, flourishing in its rotten fruit, teetering on the edge of eternal hell. We must see the spirit of the world so that we are not drawn into it. Our heart has been delivered from it, now our thinking must be released from its grip.
When your life has come out of the world, your money and your materialism, as well as your desires becomes sanctified. Yes, the cross can sanctify your money too. (2 Corinthians 8:5)
We are the light of the world, not the world! Our light is not to make it look good, but to shine into its evil and darkness. Light exposes what is in the dark. The world has nothing but the sounds of silence to offer the true Christian. The world echoes with emptiness.
We have the sounds of orchestras of salvation to offer it.
The closer you get to our Lord the more clearly you see, hear, think, speak and do the things of God. But also, the more alienated from the world you become as it sees you as an alien!
So, we are not to love the world or the things of the world, because God says so, and because they are all due for soon coming destruction. The world –system has grown large in the soil of sin and evil, now inextricably a part of it. Its days are numbered.
We are to love the kingdom of God, not yet fully visible to our eyes, but it is there already triumphant and waiting in anticipation for us to walk in through its gates of glory, to meet its great cloud of witnesses cheering us on. (Hebrews 12:1-2)
Isaiah 55:6-7 “Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake His way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, and He will have mercy on him. He will abundantly pardon.”
It’s time to start looking to, and being concerned with things of eternal value and consequence. TPS is to help you prepare for what lies ahead.
How dumb to go forward unprepared to meet your maker, especially in these days!
This is a mix of some of my pictures of a white rhino and some trees.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 521: May 12th 2020.
The spirit realm:
These are the words of life!
Real victory and success in your Christian life depends upon what you can’t see!
This edition is about the spirit realm of angels, demons and the workings of spiritual forces in the world the flesh or sin nature and the demonic, as they relate to today.
These were prophesied thousands of years ago for our information, and edification.
Beware, many will be caught unawares and will fall victim to devastating things they can’t even see. On the other hand, many will be set free from the clutches of these forces, and many will be well aware of the dangers, and take action, before they can even strike.
There is much fear around, but there is great excitement. Don’t let fear bring you down. There is a biblical principle: “What you greatly fear will come upon you.” (Job 3:25)
Fear can also let in the occult – especially good sounding occult practises. Don’t go there!
Fear makes you weak. Knowledge prepares you for battle. It gives you awareness of what you need for the battle and to stand strong.
In times of spiritual darkness, the Bible instructs the church to “give heed to prophecy.” (2 Peter 1:18-19) If you don’t you are in trouble. In this verse, prophecy is compared to a light shining in a dark place.
The Bible talks of progressing darkness: “Darkness, gross darkness, and increasing darkness.” In the dark you stumble, stagger, slip and slide. The answer is “giving heed to Bible prophecy”!
More real than real:
The spirit realm is more real than the physical, natural realm, and what you can see with your eyes. Our Lord spoke of this numerous times. (2 Corinthians 4:18, Romans 8:24)
The invisible Spirit of the living God is being poured out on all flesh right now, and will soon include a special outpouring on Israel. (Zechariah 12:10 Joel 2:28-29, Acts 2:1-4)
The great satanic outpouring of forces is found right here:
Revelation 12:12 “Rejoice O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows he has a short time.
So, we see here that there will be, and is already, a great outpouring of the Spirit of God bringing salvation to untold masses, and also an outpouring of the spirit of Satan, antichrist, sin and evil.
“If you are not born again, you cannot see the kingdom of God.” (John 3:3) You can legitimately extend that and say that neither can you see the kingdom of darkness, or the mystery of sin.
John 6:63 “It the Spirit who gives life, the flesh profits nothing. The words I speak to you, they are spirit and life.”
What an incredible thing! This verse above says that the words of God are not really words, as such. This includes the words of the Bible. They are actually spirit and true life. How amazing is that?
When you open your Bible, it can be stone dead or it can be full of supernatural life springing up. The Spirit gives life. No Spirit – no life!
The word of God in your mouth can be dead, or tingling with life, dripping off your tongue. Some people are hanging above hell by a thread of the word in their mouth. Their confession will take them down or a long way higher!
The world, a cage of wild demonic “birds”
Revelation 18:2 “He cried with a mighty loud voice, saying, ‘Babylon the Great is fallen is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean hated bird.”
The verse above refers to Babylon the Great, which is a reference to the end-time world system. It “is fallen, is fallen” refers to its original fall and its end time fall. But note that the characteristic of the end time world is spiritual and full of demons, and foul spirits.
All the troubles of the world are in fact a result of a war in the spirit realm.
In times of trouble, man needs to save man, so he finds the best man and still fails, because he is blind to the mega spiritual forces in play. If you can’t see the forces you can’t deal with them.
Then you will be tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine or every opinion of man, or every conspiracy theory, lie and error.
This is why we are to “love not the world” and “come out and be separate.”
Behind the veil:
As spiritual sight increases, we emerge from the veil, with new eyes, things become new, beautiful, holy and true. Demons give way to dancers, dancing a new dance of glory.
If you could have the invisible veil pulled open, you would see incredible things:
2 Kings 6:16-17 “Do not fear for those who are with us are more than those who are with them. And Elisha prayed and said, ‘Lord I pray, open his eyes that he may see.’ Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.”
Psalm 68:17 “The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of thousands. The Lord is among them as in the Sinai, in the Holy Place.”
Zechariah 6:1 “Then I looked and behold four chariots were coming from between the two mountains, and the mountains were mountains of bronze (symbol of judgement).
There is a huge battle on the go even now in the spirit realm. The battle in the spirit also manifests in the battle for truth against all error and deception, which is also intensifying.
The forces all around us are both angelic and demonic. Your life is under the influence of either and sometimes both together if you are unstable.
The huge positive potential in you is noted by the demonic realm causing them to attack you, but know that there are more godly spiritual forces with you than evil forces. They are dancing around you, invisibly right now!
Slaughter of the innocents:
If you could have the spiritual veil pulled aside, you will see the value of the unborn and the innocent youth. You will see the value of life because it is eternal. The reward state is eternal which is why early death is tragic. It cuts short that potential.
The Bible records the slaughter of untold millions of young children. ●Pharaoh killed all the firstborn young boys. ● Herod kills the young boys under two. ●Child sacrifice to the Egyptian god of Molec (Leviticus 18:21) included aborted children. In our times, The US Supreme Court spearheaded the ●worldwide slaughter of the unborn.
Right now we are on the verge of payback time. God does not forget one innocent life slaughtered by men of antiquity and modernity!
The plagues of reprisal are coming on the wings of flying horses of death!
You see, the world can’t see that pay-back time has started.
The satanic forces are in panic mode, because they see and know that their time is just about up, so they are revving things up.
As our Lord’s coming draws closer, the surrounding environment of godly fruit, truth and saving grace is evident to those who can see. At the same time the antichrist is drawing near with his encroaching environment of sin, error, deception and all things evil.
The work of the cross and Spirit opens eyes:
Isaiah 40:31 “Those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”
The phrase, “renew their strength” above, would be better translated “exchange their strength.” It is a deeper permanent exchange that takes place after we are born again. It is not a renewed old life but a radical new creation on the inside, and on the far side of the cross, from which our power to change is derived.
It is the power of death and resurrection through the cross, together with the baptism in the Spirit and the accompanying gifts of the Spirit, that give us eyesight, insight, foresight and victory.
We get eyes to see into the invisible realm by faith.
●We get to see rewards laid up for the spiritually diligent. ●We get to see glimpses of eternity and heaven. ●We get to see ourselves as dead, yet, more alive than ever. ●We get to see demons, angels and their workings. ●We get to see the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
●You get to see that you are a store of real wealth like gold. In the physical world, gold, silver and diamonds are the ultimate long-term store of value. Through the new birth, this is what you see in yourself and others born of the Spirit.
Today, so many are without hope, having their normal lives pulled out from under them. “What is your life?” (1 Thessalonians 4:13, Ephesians 2:12)
So many people are sinking like a brick in a sea of spiritual ignorance, with eyes that cannot see.
In my life as a journalist and photographer covering many wars, and news events with much death around, I often looked into the still-open eyes of a dead person, but they could see nothing. Some of the images were haunting to say the least and still engraved in my memory.
Today, those images of the dead with eyes open, for me speak volumes in type, of the unsaved, the walking dead, with eyes open that do not see! (Mark 8:18, Jeremiah 5:21)
Thank our Lord for giving us sight, understanding, wisdom and hope. – Thank you Lord!
The modern cowboy
The world, like a cowboy, has run God out of town and welcomed in sin on horseback. But listen, cowboy on your horse, if you ride God out of your town, He will oblige and leave, but you will be releasing four evil, destructive, horsemen far worse than you could ever imagine.
So, cowboy, you need to have your dead, blind eyes opened. Many will leave your world cowboy, as they get saved, and with new eyes, see untold magnificence that they never even knew existed.
2 Corinthians 4:18 “We do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
2 Corinthians 5:7 “We walk by faith and not by sight.”
Romans 8:24 “We were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope, for why does one hope for what he sees?”
Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
The verses above are powerful, but they are dead letter if not believed and acted on in faith. These verses come to life when you are following the risen Lord. When you see Him and walk with Him, amazing things happen and you can’t make them un-happen.
►When you have seen the risen Lord, you cannot un-see Him! You are permanently changed.
When you surrender to our Lord and fall before Him you are on the way to glory, as soon as you pick yourself up from the floor!
Bear in mind that those who had an encounter with the Lord of miracles, or the risen Lord, all fell before Him, like a useless Humpty Dumpty.
●Moses was left with a dazzling, scorched face. ●Jacob (Israel) was left limping. ●Isaiah fell before Him. ●Paul was floored and left blinded temporally. ● Peter fell before Him seeing his sinful self.
(Exodus 34:29, Genesis 32:28-31, Isaiah 6:5, Acts 9:4, 22:11, Luke 5:8)
The change in the disciples was so deep and radical that they all willingly gave their lives for our Lord in martyrdom, (except John who died of old age).
It is this experience of meeting the risen Lord, if only in faith, that empowers us to “perfect holiness” in us. It is the “pure in heart that shall see God.”
Even your thinking will be judged by our all seeing and knowing Lord. He sees and He knows it all. Yes the cross strips our sin away, but don’t think you can escape His assessment of you.
Isaiah 29:15 “Woe to those who seek deep to hide their counsel far from the Lord, and their works are in the dark. They say, ‘who sees us and who knows us?’”
You can fall before the Lord in surrender or you will fall before the Lord because he has cast you down to the ground. (Isaiah 14:12-17) At the end of the day of life, every knee shall bow before Him.
Job 42:5 “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my spiritual eye sees You, therefore I abhor myself and repent in dust and ashes.”
Isaiah 33:17 “Your eyes will see the King in His beauty; they will see the land that is very far off...Look upon Zion the city of our appointed feasts; your eyes will see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle that will not be taken down. Not one of its stakes will ever be removed, nor will any of its cords be broken.”
We have a powerful glimpse of our eternal state in the Lord Himself and His 40-day time period on and off the earth after the resurrection and before the ascension.
The glorious, majestic end:
Revelation 21:4 “God will wipe away every tear from their eyes, there shall be no more death and no more sorrow, nor crying, and there shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
2 Peter 3:11-12 “Since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of people ought you to be, in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the Day of God...”
A new world is coming believe it or not. It is coming for those that are saved.
All liars, thieves, cheats, money manipulators, murderers, abortionists, extortionists and every other crime you can think of will be gone. There will be no need for the police, the court room and the jail. There will be no more watchmen needed. There will be no religions, nor politicians. There will be no more idiots, fools and stupid people.
Due to space, I will deal with this another time. It is a subject that is very interesting, dealing with the demonic, strange people, as well as some surprising realities.
You can die in your sins or the Lord’s salvation, or don’t die ever because of the rapture. (So much for the idiots who continually chant: “The only sure thing is death and taxes!”)
You need to encounter the risen Lord and the majesty of the risen Messiah! Pray for the Lord to give you that experience. It will shake you break you and reconstruct you as a magnificent one.
The eyes have it – reopened by God, now with heavenly spiritual sight.
Guard your mind, your spirit, and your eyes with all your strength.
I blended these two pictures of mine together for a new effect.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 520: May 5th 2020.
Identifying truth and error:
These are the words of life!
Modern end-time man is under attack from a terrible serial killer stalking the streets looking for the vulnerable. In his hand is a dagger of deception, stabbing the hearts of the unprotected. Are you one of the victims? Most people are and don’t even know that they have a satanic spear in their heart!
The dangerous dagger is invisible, yet it has dark intelligence. It has a poisoned tip. Your heart, the centre of your life, is the target.
Your defence is the truth of God’s word. It is pure, undefiled doctrine with no ulterior motives. It is the Spirit of God, the armour of God given to you as a gift of the Spirit. It is your renewed thought life, your words, your holy actions and even a brigade of angles!
In this edition, I want to look at the fast growing threat and danger of deception, false doctrine, and error, as well the way out if you are a victim and the way of protection.
But first: As the coming of the Lord draws nearer, I have noticed that many prophecy teachers, watchmen, and ministers are coming into a new fresh unity. Here it is:
►Isaiah 52:8 “Your watchmen shall lift up their voices, with their voices they shall sing together, for they shall see eye to eye, when the Lord brings back Zion.”
It is unity that produces strength. Note well what this unity is about: It is about God’s plans for Israel!
Days of shaking:
We have this deadly virus to contend and the outpouring of deception. Talk about a shaking – and it’s just started! And yes of course, the Spirit of the living God is also being poured out.
In days of shaking, trouble and danger, people look for stability, safety and peace. They want to know what’s going on. Shaking has a purpose: It is to shake off the sin. If that is not achieved, the shaking continues. It is also to bring correction and if not received judgement and punishment.
Some ask for biblical truth on the matters. They are on the way to salvation. Some ask the mass-media. They are on the way to surrender to the antichrist and his mark.
What is truth?
It is God-breathed, by His Spirit. It is His now-speaking word and His ancient written word. These things are the very essence of eternal life.
Doctrine comes from the root word “dogma” from which ‘dogmatic’ is derived. Biblical doctrine is unlike any other collection of words in the world. It sets you free – indeed.
Biblical doctrine can be alive and living or dead letter. It can produce life or bring death. It can bring growth or starve you when withheld. It lasts forever! The true word of God is delivered by the word of disciples, prophets, watchmen, and even a donkey thrown in.
God’s truth is changes you, and by the way the way, that change is soon going to manifest in an explosive atomic, flash that makes us just like our Lord!
What is deception?
Deception comes in on the back of error, heresy, or false doctrine. It includes the misuse or miss-application of the word of God. It comes in by people of pride or ignorance of the scriptures, and is always of the “spirit of error.” (1 John 4:6) It expands and grows and stunts your growth or even leaves you shipwrecked.
Deception and error kills the anointing.
Deception comes in different “strengths.” It is the primary end-time sign. (Matthew 24:4)
A biblical error or false belief about something may be of minor importance and not to get bent out of shape about. Some erroneous doctrines are more important, and the real big deceptions are generally those that affect people’s lives and knock on to other doctrines.
If you do not know your Bible well in these days, as led by the Spirit, you are in danger of not knowing what deception is, how it knocks on to other doctrines and how it affects people’s lives.
False doctrine and deception is a major cause of division in the church. In fact if the church was led by the Spirit, there would be no divisions, as it should be. There would be no denominations. The word means division. (1 Corinthians 1:10)
Everything with the cross removed is essentially deception. The cross separates sin from righteousness, good from evil.
Just like at Babylon, the world thinks it can produce peace without the cross. It can’t and won’t, and will be destroyed as a result of trying.
The cross purifies doctrine and kills false agendas and ulterior motives. Only the cross kills the spirit of error. Be careful of any ministry that does not have the cross central.
Just as important as having the cross central in your life, so is the baptism in the Spirit.
You will save yourself a lot of time and hassle when examining doctrine, if you look for the end goal of it. Look at the ultimate conclusion. Another important thing is to note what other main stream doctrines are messed up by them.
Deception is buss full of demons – don’t get on it.
Some modern day deceptions:
Beware of socio-political agendas in the church. In most cases they are pure deception.
Political parties worldwide were identified as right wing or left, free market or socialist, capitalist or communist. Today they have evolved into distinctly, godly or ungodly. We could add to that pro-Israel or Israel haters. They almost all have an agenda for God or against Him.
Beware of all interfaith efforts. Everything with the cross removed moves closer to hell.
Beware of all things Catholic, but be open to some of them who will seek genuine salvation.
The same applies to the other orthodox and denominational churches, although they are already the prime victims of a falling away, while Spirit-filled Christianity grows significantly.
I recently saw a report of an underground church in China with 300,000 participants.
Some modern false doctrines and errors that knock on to other doctrines:
■All replacement theology doctrines and their offshoots. ■All doctrines proclaiming that God has finished with Israel, and is beyond repentance are deception. ■This great error is seen in so-called “rightly dividing the truth.” Its bottom line contradicts a thousand scriptures. It is an old doctrine but is now resurfacing under the Revelation 12-sign teachers of deception. It includes the false doctrine that the seven churches of Revelation are Israel and not the church. That of course means that Israel will be “spat out” and cast into hell, which is the message from God for some churches. (Revelation 3:16, 2:22) ■One of the biggest, most wide-spread deceptions in and out of the church is that you can be saved by being good. ■The belief that the gifts of the Spirit are not for today is total deception, designed to weaken the church. ■Many use the truth of prosperity and healing to manipulate their flock – beware of them.
There are numerous other deceptions out there to steer clear of like hyper grace, all one world, one religion, one currency efforts. I have said a lot against the doctrines of Imminence, the so-called great apostasy in recent reports and editions, so I’ll leave them for another time.
►Be careful of teachers that can’t or won’t warn you of the pitfalls and deceptions around today.
Galatians 4:16 “Have I become your enemy because I tell you the truth?”
Ephesians 4:14 (Amp) “Be no more as children tossed to and fro between chance gusts of teaching and wavering with every changing wind of doctrine, the cunningness and cleverness of unscrupulous men, in ever shifting forms of trickery in inventing errors to mislead.”
“By any means” above means “Don’t give them the slightest opportunity.”
What’s going on?
Only spiritually informed Christians know what’s going on behind the scenes. Only they can see the instruments of global satanic control. The new-world order would be more than happy to get these Christians out of the way, because their god knows our God in us, can see them and their plans.
A world government, just like at Babylon, would eliminate so much confusion and bring in the strength of unity. (Genesis 11:6) But God will destroy it all.
You can’t have world peace with a world full of sin. By making sin irrelevant and relative, makes no difference to God. It is sin, due for destruction.
Science and facts are good and fine, but in whose hands? If they are in the hands of the media, they are often manipulated to fit their agenda. It’s easy to lie with statistics.
The world is looking for a corona-cure. We have it. The world has already shown its hatred for the victory-medicine. It is national and international repentance and a return to the principles of a nation under God.
We have another more certain cure as well. We are dead too the world and to the flesh and sin nature and the demonic. We are already seated above with our Lord.
Why is this corona virus striking the world, and is it a judgement of God?
The answer is found in the verse the Lord gave me in December last year to give to you as the crowning verse for 2020. Here it is:
This verse is headed, “Babylon humiliated.” In application, 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; and 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.”
Here is a parallel verse:
Ezekiel 14:13 “Son of man, when a land sins against Me by persistent unfaithfulness, I will stretch out My hand against it. I will cut off its supply of bread and send famine on it, and cut off man and beast from it.”
I see some in the field of medical science are now saying the corona virus will be around for years to come. That ties in clearly with Isaiah 47:11 above!
The truth in some glorious rapture revelations:
The great pre-tribulation rapture proof which many can’t see:
I shared some of these in the last Sabbath Report, but this is an extended version:
2 Thessalonians 2:7-8 “The mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. And then, shall the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume...”
Here are some interesting word meanings from the verse above:
- “Taken out”: Strong’s G1096: “Ginomai.” Meanings: “Arise, appear, of a miracle, be married to.”
- “And then:” Strong’s G5119 “Tote.” Meanings: “At that instant in time, immediately, thereupon.”
- “Revealed:” Strong’s G601: “Apokalypto” Meanings: “uncover, unveil, make manifest, disclose.”
Let’s now write the verse out using these words:
►►►2 Thessalonians 2:7-8 “The mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains (the Spirit-filled church) will do so until He miraculously arises to be married. At that instant, immediately, the lawless one (antichrist) will be revealed...”
This verse destroys the erroneous teaching that there will be a gap between the rapture and the start of the tribulation period of an unknown time, which they say could be up to ten years or more!
Besides being totally illogical and messing up dispensations, and other things, the verse simply and plainly says that immediately after the rapture the antichrist will be revealed. How can you have a period after the rapture where the antichrist has been revealed, but the tribulation hasn’t started?
Another way of looking at the pre-tribulation rapture is the pre-antichrist rapture.
This verse also destroys a post-tribulation rapture. The verse links the rapture and the revealing of the antichrist. ●How can the antichrist be revealed at the end of the tribulation – into the Millennium?
The truth behind the scenes of the corona virus:
Some people just want things to return to normal – a world full of sin! Others are talking about the new normal. Let me tell you that because of exactly where we are on God’s time clock, the new normal is going to be all the forerunners of the four riders of the Apocalypse galloping onto the stage.
Here is the great big ‘OOPS’ the world has made when legalising the government-approved mass murder of the unborn and all the legislation in favour of moral decay:
Psalm 10:11-13 “He (evil ones) have said in their hearts, ‘God has forgotten, He hides His face, He will never see it.’ ...Why do the wicked renounce God? He has said in his heart. ‘You will not require an account.”
God hides His face behind a mask, or veil from the wicked until the time of repentance.
This world corona-crisis and its off shoots have created increased national debt, personal debt and dependency on the state, healthcare dependency, poverty and its related diseases, re-education, and the creation of masses of useful idiots ready to be controlled.
An antidote or vaccine will make its creator and financier a superman. He will be the forerunner to the antichrist or even be him.
The one who finds the answer will be received and believed as a world hero, a true evil hero! The nations will willingly give their authority over to this superman.
The end objective of the new world order is a new world comfortably at peace with the devil and his sin. Beware; God will not let mankind off the hook that easily.
►The good news is that the bill gates of hell will not prevail against the church!
But the nations won’t give up their authority to the antichrist easily. They need to be unified, in one mind to do so. They need a vehicle. The corona virus is that vehicle. It is the corona (crown) arriving for the coronation of the antichrist, just before he arrives!
Revelation 17:13 “These (nations) are of one mind and they will give their power and authority to the beast.”
Both of the words ‘power’ and ‘authority’ above, are extremely insightful.
►“Authority”: Strong’s G1847 – “Exousia”. Meanings: Executive authority, jurisdiction, power of choice.
► “Power”: Strong’s G1411 – “Dynamis”. Meanings: Moral power and influence through wealth and riches. In some applications (not this one) it can also mean explosive supernatural power.
Do you see how well the word meanings above, fit the scenario that we see developing even now? Yes, this verse fully occurs in the tribulation, but we see it developing now. Read those word meanings again!
This, my fine friends, is what is happening behind the scenes right now!
Will the corona-crisis fizzle out? It’s unlikely. It may well ebb and flow, wax and wane, but because of the place we are at in prophecy, there just isn’t much time left.
Today the world is united against a common enemy – a virus. Soon that enemy will become the true church and Israel.
I fully expect Israel to blast back onto centre stage very soon. Watch and be amazed!
Don’t watch your life pass you by, and don’t waste your God-given valuable gift of time with false doctrine, heresy and error. There are far more important things on the go now.
The eternal dimension is close by. It is not far off. It will be an existence based on supernatural existence, holiness and love, with sin removed forever. What safety in that!
Many true Christians have met Him in faith, walked with Him, follow Him and are about to meet Him face to face and be changed to be just like Him, forever! Don’t waste your life now.
This is a mix of some of my pictures of trees in the deserts of Botswana and Namibia.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 519: April 28th 2020.
These are the words of life!
When the tribulation period gets underway soon, the world will burn. Of course that’s a metaphor, but it’s symbolic of a host of inescapable, very real events.
The world will wake up soon in a living hell. The time is called: ●The tribulation. ●The time of Jacob’s trouble. ●The seventieth week of Daniel. ●The Day of the Lord.
Suddenly great revival will begin. Untold millions of Jews and Gentiles will turn to the Lord grasping and gasping for salvation. They will find it.
Shaking causes changing:
A shaking causes cracks to form in people’s hearts through which God’s Spirit can enter. People look for hope in times of chaos and crisis.
Statistics show that suicide has dramatically increased; alcohol misuse and others have risen dramatically. This all demonstrates that modern man can’t live well without his idols.
In these troubled times many look to God as just another idol and sponsor, to be used in emergencies. Some even use these situations as money-grabbing opportunities.
Lying signs and wonders are good tools for money grabbing thieves.
Lying signs and wonders are a characteristic of the tribulation period too.
The true church must operate in the supernatural. But here is the defining verse: The early church operated in miracles “which no one can deny” (Acts 4:16). That’s not the description of a lot of churches and their ministers who are like a circus full of clowns.
Ministries full of manipulation and fraud do not have the Holy Spirit. Some of the frauds claiming “The Lord told me” are liars, to be avoided like the plague.
Deception is a spirit used as diversion tactic to let the devil in. That will be the prime method of antichrist in the tribulation period. The church must steer clear of all of it now.
Many churches and teachers are doing a wonderful job warning and preparing their flock for what lies ahead, others are dead silent, and others are totally deceived. Be discerning.
The tribulation period will be characterised by the celebration of unrestrained evil because the restrainer of evil will be gone. Deception will flourish like never before.
The deadly mark of the beast will come about on the wings of great deception. The mark is still unrevealed and therefore unknown at this point. It is likely to be a chip implant a smart tattoo of some sort, or a device-less instrument.
The mark will appear in the tribulation period. But the preparations for its arrival are being seen now. What we need to be aware of now, and avoid is any vaccination or implant coming along that is mandatory.
Those who reject the mark will be prevented from “buying or selling.”
But there is another “mark” that will be predominant in the tribulation, orchestrated by the same devil. It will be the mark of martyrdom!
If you test positive for salvation and being in close contact with God, you will be locked down and locked up and then beheaded. The funny thing is these dumb one-world idiots think that beheading believers, kills them – ha ha ha!!
As an unbeliever who takes the mark, God will practice social distancing from you forever!
Shutting down the entire world economy, to a degree, has now been shown to be easy. It’s on the stage already. But what does it lead to? It leads to a global world economy. The world is now primed for worldwide global measures to come about.
The object is control over every aspect of life, movement, activities, transactions, business, commerce, industry, tracking, surveillance and more. Even your own body will end up being a possession of the world-state.
Many will be fed and led by the father of lies working through the mass-media, the evil voice of the coming world government.
Once control has been achieved, worship of the antichrist will be mandatory.
The crown of God and the crown of hell:
This is the era of the corona virus.
The word “corona” means “crown.”
A crown can also have a “diadem” around it. This is ring of jewels completely encircling the crown. A diadem is also called a “coronet.”
The word “coronation” means a royal ceremony in which a crown (corona) is given as a symbol of regal authority.
The corona virus is a circular crown-like object with numerous protrusions sticking out, like a diadem around the crown. The corona virus is in fact a crown of disease and death.
Revelation chapter six speaks of the early days of the tribulation period and the release of the antichrist and the four riders of the apocalypse.
We see the antichrist released first, as the rider of the storms, on a white horse with a bow and no arrow (deception). We see him being given a crown (corona) as he rides onto the world’s stage to conquer. (Revelation 6:2)
The world is being groomed by the spouse of hell wearing a corona, with a diadem bedecked in death.
The corona virus is the crown of the antichrist. It has arrived on the stage, now just ahead of him, ready for the great coronation of wickedness.
Because of the timing of the corona virus, in the prophetic scheme of things, it is the “invitation” to the coronation of the antichrist, the bride of Satan.
A vaccination will be the forerunner of the mark of the beast. It is a way of conrol.
There is no vaccination for sin and never will be.
►But, and it’s a very big and important “but,” It is our majestic Lord of glory who is crowned King of the universe.
Shockingly, wonderfully, and incredibly, He has made us, His people, royal kings and priests. He will make Israel, now scorned, crowned kings and priests too.
●Isaiah 28:5 “In that day the Lord of Host will be for a crown of glory and a diadem of beauty to the remnant of His people.”
●Isaiah 62:3 “You shall be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.”
●2 Timothy 4:8 “Finally, there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not only ne, but all who love His appearing.”
A dirty, rotten peace:
Soon after the rapture the world will rejoice, believing that peace has arrived.
The world will think peace has arrived because Christians who would not make peace with sin have been removed.
There will be joy and celebrations because there is no more restraint of sin. The world will be happy and joyful, but then, four deadly demon riders will suddenly bring horror, terror and dread to the now flabbergasted masses.
Their binge of sin will now be an anchor of hell around their necks. The grandstands of hell will egg them on from below. Their jubilation will turn to shock. Revelry will turn to regret.
Bear in mind that true Christians arriving in heaven are met by “grandstands” of welcomers, and “such great clouds of witnesses.” (Hebrews 12:1)
Here is the tragic other side of the story:
Isaiah 14:9 “Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming; it stirs up the dead for you, all the chief ones of the earth, it has raised from their thrones, all the kings of the nations.”
The grandstands of heaven will meet you at your coming, or the grandstands of hell! Choose wisely!
You can’t stop the tribulation from coming. But you as a Christian must stay well informed and warned so that you do not step on the unseen, explosive mines of the devil, and so that you can snatch people into God’s kingdom now before these terrible events unfold.
The corona virus is globalist. It does not recognise international borders and does not submit to their political leaders. The virus has an international visa.
Some mainstream news media are reporting that some so-called experts are saying there is a chance that no cure will be found for Covid-19. If that turns out to be true, how would it fit in to the world scenario?
All things being equal, it would be a blow to the world. But if the world dives into the tribulation soon, it’s par for the course because the tribulation will be full of diseases.
The corona virus is a vehicle to bring about false world peace, once it has gone. But it will be a world full of the virus of sin, primed for the arrival of the man of sin.
They say a global challenge needs a global response.
WO2020060606 – the Gates patent number for his global vaccine is riddled with hell. “WO” stands for “World Organisation.” 2020 is the year. In numerology you drop the “0” so you are left with 666.
On May 14th (Israel’s birthday) ID 2020 launches. This is an initiative with Bill Gates involvement to identify all people with a micro-chip. Beware of the hidden agendas and conditioning behind the scenes!
Remember the Nazi /Hitler principle: “Make the lie big and keep saying it and the people will eventually believe it.”
Satan’s ultimate goal is worship as head of a new world, sin-filled order. Hitler’s ultimate goal was a 1000-year millennial world order with the Nazi Party as head. The Bible and the Jews got in the way.
Today the counterfeit anti-Israel church is in the same boat trying to bring in multi-faith world peace.
The modern Hitler in the church does not use gas ovens, but he uses false doctrine. Gas ovens will give way to beheadings in the tribulation. But even now the churches of replacement theology have “beheaded” the Jews with the deadly weapon of biblical doctrines like replacement theology.
All the opinions and doctrines of man must bow now to the foolishness of the cross of Messiah. They all will ultimately do so! The cross cleanses, purifies and makes holy whatever goes through it. The cross includes the power of resurrection, where all things resurrect in unity and love.
The cross is the way to the crown of God! No cross is the way to the corona of hell.
When will the rapture take place?
People say “no one knows the time or the day and hour.”
The Bible likens the coming of the Lord to a birth preceded by birth pangs.
Does a mother know when the baby is due? Of course she does. She has a “due date.” The birth occurs very close to the due time. She really is a fool if she has no idea when the baby is due, thinking it could be antime.
The grand coronation of the antichrist is of course the signing of the seven year peace pact, releasing him to ride the storms of tribulation disasters all the way to hell.
We will see preparations for the coming of the antichrist ahead of time.
The rapture happens just before the tribulation begins.
The coronation of the King of kings and Lord of lords, the Messiah, will occur in heaven at a great supper – the marriage feast of the Lord.
But when does it take place? It is a supper, so it takes place in the evening, just as the sun twinkles like an eye on the horizon as it sets.
The Feast of Trumpets, according to tradition begins at this “twinkling of an eye.”
►One of the many amazing tiles for the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah) is known as “The coronation of the King.” (Look it up)
The glorious surprise is that the coronation of the King of Kings sees all true believers raised to a position of co-rulership with our Lord from His throne! We rule and reign with our Lord as kings and priests.
At the same time on the earth the antichrist’s rule of death and destruction is in high gear. The rule of antichrist will end with a “triumphant” supper. It is a feast of death, called the feast of the vultures (Matthew 24:28)
The grand dividing line between heaven and hell is holiness or sin. Only the cross of Calvary generates and secures eternal holiness in you.
Why is holiness or sin the dividing line of the end times?
Holiness is the character or fruit of God. Sin is the character and fruit of Satan.
Without repentance, and belief in the resurrection, the new-birth is nothing more than a withering, tuned new leaf. True salvation is seen in regeneration and resulting change. Your life must condemn the world! A good argument against the veracity of the Bible is an unholy, worldly life.
►Salvation is not about words it’s about a person. The goal of the Christian life is not just salvation or heaven. It is an abundant entrance into the eternal kingdom.
Many will make it to heaven, but without an abundant entrance.
There is an easy way to tell if someone is really saved or even how deep your own salvation is. Do you hate what God hates and love what He loves? Have you overcome the world? (1 John 5:4)
The towers fell on 9/11 and man has built another one. His new tower of pride and self effort is crumbling. Modern man’s life is a tower of offence to God. It is a tower of pride, sin and rebellion on every front. It is bedecked and decorated with a diadem of idols. It is named Babylon the Great.
Revelation 17:1-18 18:1-8 Describes the great fall Babylon the great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth. These important passages refer to the destruction of false religion, primarily the Catholics, as well as the entire world economic, social and moral end-time world. “Her plagues will come in a day.”
Modern man is quietly screaming for release from the slavery of sin, the flesh and the world. His screams are futile falling on the ears of God deaf to man’s pride.
Ephesians 4:17-18 “...You should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardening of their heart.”
The conclusion is that after the rapture there will be great victory being celebrated by those now in heaven and great evil, sorrow and hatred on a world under the wrath of God, wrath of Satan, wrath of man and wrath of nature.
Psalm 112:1-2 “Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who delights greatly in His word. His descendants will be mighty on the earth; the generation of the upright will be blessed.”
The Bible says that biblical wisdom makes you wise in all things! The opposite is just as true. People with no biblical wisdom or knowledge of God, are the real, genuine stupid people, even though they may have university degrees and high social standing.
Be careful of the minister that won’t warn you of biblical things to come because they are not popular or may scare people. That minister is the one to be very scared of. He will have a lot of “blood on his hands.” (Ezekiel 3:18)
This is the time you need to know your Bible. It speaks on everything – every subject. Take heed what you hear and how you hear!
Giants of the wilds: I took the two pictures and merged them. The trunk of the baobab tree, to me, resembles the elephant trunk.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
