This website is distinctly Messianic, comprising the Abrahamic expression of faith, which is to the Jew and the Gentile with a Hebraic character. We affirm the fullness of absolute truth contained in the Bible, embracing the cross and identifying with the convocations of the Lord as seen in the Feasts, the Sabbath and Passover. We reject the legalism of many in the Messianic movement. We reject the Babylonian Pagan traditions of the church. We consider all people Jews and Gentiles and those in all churches who are truly born of the Spirit of the living God to be one family. We reject institutional organised denominationalism (division). We foresee a great falling away of much of the church in these days, while at the same time a great restoration of part of the church. We affirm and identify with God's plan and call to the Jewish people in these days and will support and stand with them as future brothers and sisters. We stand happily with pre / mid/ and post tribbers. Our slant is cautiously pre-trib, but hey, post tribber...you're still family! Today much error has been added to Christendom and much truth has been removed. The Prophetic Scroll's aim is to deal with these issues and assist you on your road to glory.
I was saved in 1976 and became extremely interested in Bible prophecy, being an ex war-correspondent and photographer. My calling and aim is to share the dramatic and all-important issues of prophecy relating to our day. This is a calling to unfold and share the wisdom of God as contained in His word. There is also much teaching in these pages for your heart. It’s not all prophecy! Please study these things further yourself and understand that the format is non-exhaustive. Please search the scriptures to “see if these be true.” This is a "watchman" and Bible prophecy teaching website.

●Russia warns Israel after air-strike in Damascus. (It seems Russia is the Middle East big-daddy)
●Israeli Air Force strikes Syria for the third in as many days. (The situation is escalating fast)
●Russia condemns Israel for retaliation over Hezbollah-desired land grab in Golan as tensions rise.
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah and to identify the rift, and the needed restoration. There is much in the church that needs to change before it can be fully reconciled with the Jew. Likewise, changes in Jewish thinking are also needed.
Edition 341: December 7th 2016
Where is the world going?
Where is the world going?
The world is racing towards destruction-destination at an increasing speed.
There are so many good, beautiful and right things about the world, but we must never lose sight of the fact that it is Satan’s domain and territory. Satan is the god of the world (2 Corinthians 4:4). The world therefore is like a breathing dragon, going the wrong way fast!
It is on course to fulfil its master’s voice. (Ephesians 2:2)
All the previous world empires were the empires of Satan. Our Lord will not save this world. He will destroy it and create a new world on the ashes of the old.
The earth is not the world. The earth is “adorned” with the world. The earth is “wearing” the world like a coat. The earth is the physical, sphere floating in space. The world is everything man-made. It is the socio-political, economic order, residing on the earth.
This is the Hebrew year 5777, which closes on Rosh Hashanah 2017 (September 21st.)
This year, 5777, the world’s greatest dramas will intensify very fast. It will all be wrapped up in seven years after the start.
We are on the eve of destruction:
They say that history repeats and we learn from history. They are wrong. History is on the verge of the greatest war, the greatest destructions and wrath. And mankind has learnt nothing. The world is heading for another world war.
What would you say if I told you Germany has learnt nothing from WW11 and the Holocaust, and is about to be a major player in the soon coming Holocaust of WW111? You would say, “I am mad”. No sir, you are wrong.
Germany and the new Holocaust:
The spirit of one of the most evil men, Hitler is alive and well. The same spirit lurks the dark streets of Germany. It is actually a host of demonic spirits, principalities and powers that are arising now.
Let’s look at some shocking, surprising, little-known facts of history:
The Aryan people came from the Nordic regions thousands of years ago and migrated down through parts of Europe and into what was Persia in those days. Some groups also ended up in parts of Asia, India in particular.
Persia is modern day Iran, extending a bit beyond as well.
“Aryan” means “Pride of nobility.” Not surprisingly the Aryans were all about human perfection.
The name Iran is a derivative of Aryan. They even sound similar.
Even today, “Aryan” is a common surname in Iran.
The Aryan people settled in a town called Kerman in Iran. Here it is today:
The coin in the image above depicts one of the sacrificial Aryan Fire Temples.
Over time these people became known as the Kermans. They were well-known for their intricate, ornate carpets and mosaics.
The Kerman people were also famous for their Zoroastrian Fire Temples. These were temples of worship to the fire gods. They believed that this sacrificial cult of fire was the cleansing agent to make one pure. They sacrificed many people in these fire-temples. They used “great fires” and “royal fires” to bring down the purifying angel of fire. The “holy, glory given fire” was the name of one of their ritual-purifying fires.
►The word “Holocaust” means “great sacrifice by fire.”
The Kerman people were originally the Aryans. Some also settled in what is today called Germany and others, as we have seen, in Kerman, Iran.
Germany took its name from the Aryan Kermans.
In some languages the word German and Kerman are the same.
►There is Aryan blood in the Germans!
The use of the Swastika in ancient Persia (Iran) is well documented. It’s visible on many old artefacts and in many museums. The Swastika was one of the symbols of the Aryans.
The Swastika was designed as an equilateral cross of four arms bent at right angles. It was always know as a symbol of world peace and the continuity thereof! Even today it is a sacred peace symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism.
There is an insightful meaning to the world “Swastika”: “Swa” means “self” and “Stika” meaning, “existing”. The word Swastika then means “self existence” or “unborn, originating from eternity.” It is rooted in Satan.
The Aryan salute comes in two forms. It is either an extended flat hand stretched out or a raised hand with two fingers raised. This was called the salute of Cyrus the Great an Aryan, and also became the Nazi salute. Interestingly, it is also used by many churches.
The top picture is a wall relief of Darius the Aryan performing the Aryan salute:
So now we have a clear historic link between ●the Aryans, ●the Kermans, ●the Germans, ●the Swastika, ●Sacrificial fire temples, ●the Aryan salute, the Nazi salute, ●WW11, ●WW111 ●and a New World Order of peace.
The historic connection and relevance of the fire temples lies in the use by the Nazi’s of the gas ovens of Auschwitz.
Are you surprised that Hitler was obsessed with the Aryans? His main objective was to create a thousand year rule of Nazi peace in a world filled with “perfect” Aryans! In his Satan-filled mind, he believed the Jews stood in his way, because they were not perfect Aryans. This was the main reason for the Nazi Holocaust.
We are now faced with a very similar thing. The Nazi Holocaust was one thing, but now we see the Magog Holocaust on the horizon! And isn’t it so interesting that so many of the original monster-players are in view again! Again the enemies of the God and the Jews will be wiped out, although at enormous cost to Israel.
Hitler first used the term “New world order” in 1941. It was the name he derived for the new Aryan world of physically perfect people, with no Jews in the lineage.
Few people are aware of this, but Hitler planned to kill all Christians as well. He would have started to do so, if he hadn’t gone the way of Judas!
Hitler’s belief in a New World Order and millennium of peace could only come about on the wings of destruction of the existing old orders and the Jews.
The “perfect”, evil, sin-filled global human of today:
The overall objective of the New World Order crowd is to set up a new world of peace, but with “perfect” people.
But today’s “perfect Aryan” is worldly, and morally evil. His “perfection” lies in the fact that he fits “perfectly” into the new world. He is simply called good, but he is evil. (Isaiah 5:20)
They are just like Hitler’s Aryans, full of outward human perfection, but full of sin, evil and wickedness. Again they will hate the Jews, because the Jews have the call of God on them. Like before, the Jews will stand in the way of the sin-filled, Satan-filled “perfect” people of the new world.
Do you see that nothing has changed? My friends, it is only the cross of Calvary that can make one perfect, pure and holy, acceptable to God and rejected by Satan.
Today the Jews stand in the way of the New World Order, because God’s call on them includes no assimilation into the nations in their dispersion and separation from the nations in the form of a Jewish State, now in the regathering.
1 Kings 8:53 “You separated them (Jews) from among all the peoples of the earth to be Your inheritance...”
1 Kings 10:9 “Blessed be the Lord your God, who delighted in you (Jews), setting you on the throne of Israel, because the Lord has loved Israel forever.”
Psalm 135:4 “For the Lord has chosen Jacob (Israel) for Himself, Israel for His special treasure.”
Where is Magog of Ezekiel 38 & 39?
There is some confusion as to what constitutes “Magog.” Where is this place? Some believe it is Russia. Some believe it is this land or that. If you look up the ancient maps of Magog, you will see that most of them differ from each other.
The map above is the most widely held identification of the WW111 players. Borders today may overlap and even be nonexistent in some areas, so, as said, you can’t cast this in stone. It’s a rough idea of where the nations are.
Thankfully, Ezekiel gives us an undeniable clue to the location. Ezekiel 38:15 “You will come from your place out of the far north...” Ezekiel 39:1-2 “Gog, prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal; I will turn you around and lead you on, bringing you from the far north against the mountains of Israel.”
A major nation to the far north of Israel can only be Russia. But it may include other modern nations around the borders of Russia as well. In fact it may also include some nations of Europe.
We need to add the other nations mentioned in Ezekiel who are allies of Magog to the big general map. The nations are: Russia, the Muslim nation of Turkey, the “Stan” nations, Germany, Ethiopia, Libya and perhaps a few other European nations.
So the big issue is that Russia will most certainly be the major constituent of “Magog.” Germany will also be right in there too!
So, now we have a conglomerate of nations attacking Israel, Germany being one of them.
So, has Germany learnt her lesson from the Holocaust of WW11? The answer is no! Isn’t it interesting that here we are on the verge of WW111 and many of the same nations of WW11 are again ready to line up in the battle fields and again with the same intention to attack and destroy Israel!
This war is inevitable. Ezekiel shows that the primary reason is to “take a spoil”. This contrasts with the reason for the Psalm 83 war, which is to “wipe Israel off the map.” This implies that the wars are not the same, which we can also deduce from the nations involved.
Magog (Russia and allies) will have no choice in the matter! God will “put hooks in their jaws” and draw them into conflict.
Be sure that major demonic forces will be involved in all of this.
Nations of the world, your days are numbered...the writing is on the wall, your doom is on the horizon.
Nations of the world, Isn't it interesting that you want world peace, but world peace is coming soon on the wings of your destruction! OOOps!
The year of the Olive Leaf:
This is the emblem and logo of one of the Jewish Rabbinical organisations. Are they right in their presumption? They may be right about the year being the “year of the olive branch or leaf”, but what about world peace?
They believe that this is the year of the coming of their Messiah who will bring in world peace. But they’re out by seven years! Yes, eternal peace is coming very, very soon, perhaps even next year for all who are born-again. This eternal peace will be exclusively for those who go in the rapture...Saved Jews and Gentiles!
World peace for the world itself, will only come on the total destruction of the existing world order in the seven year tribulation, to be ended by Messiah’s second coming.
Jews call this year 5777, the year of the olive leaf. The olive leaf is a universal symbol of peace. The olive leaf returned to the ark signifying the end of the waters of God’s judgement and a new dispensation of peace. Many Jews believe it will all happen now this year.
The rapture is the first phase of the Second Coming and the coming world of peace. It must occur first.
Unless you are born again now, world destruction, not world peace is on the horizon. Be careful, that dove with the leaf in its mouth, means it’s all very near, but the waters haven’t subsided yet.
If any group of people in the world want peace it is the Jews, and rightly so.
Jews were hated by the Nazi’s because they didn’t fit in with Hitler’s “perfect” Aryan idea of a new world order. Jews are hated today by the globalists, the UN and others, because they don’t fit in with their idea of a new world order.
Jews are hated by Islamic Arabs because they don’t fit in with Islam’s goal of world domination.
Like the futility of the fool King Herod, and all anti-Semites, they will all die in their quest to rid the world of the Jews and prevent the perfect, Jewish King of kings from soon appearing!
Globalism, by its very definition, must contain a global, world-human with a global identity and morality, acceptable to all in the global community. The global morality must meet the lowest common denominating factor. It must include the global, worldly, human rights of all the moral sin in the world, because it’s a human right.
Bear in mind that only the Bible correctly identifies moral sin and only the cross can deal with it. This is why the preaching of the law in the church is so important. I’m not talking about coming under the law, because we live by the law in our hearts. But the law identifies sin and shows that you can’t keep it, thus pointing to the answer who is our Messiah.
The world must remove the law because it identifies sin as sin. The world’s course is heading towards a “sinless” world, full of real sin, which can only be identified by the Bible.
The one-world agenda has suddenly marched onto the stage of the great end-time drama. One –world government, one-world religion, one- world morality, one -world currency are all modern idols lining up for destruction.
Nationalism has been turned into an evil sin by the world’s mass media, while it’s actually God’s way for the nations.
There is a big difference between God’s globalism and Satan’s. God’s way is exclusive. It includes only those who have gone through the purifying work of the cross, which strips out sin. Satan’s way is all-inclusive which leaves sin intact and strips out God’s holiness.
God’s way strips out Satan and Satan’s way strips out God. Pick your choice my friends! Shall I give you a clue as to which one to choose? “I set before you life and death, blessing and cursing, therefore choose life!” (Deuteronomy 30:19)
By the way, if you don’t want to choose, you have chosen! (Matthew 12:30)
Here are some very important anti-globalism verses:
Acts 17:26 “He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, so that they should seek the Lord.”
Isaiah 10:13-14 “By the strength of my hand (Satan), I have done it, and by my wisdom for I am prudent; I also have removed the boundaries of the people and have robbed their treasuries...My hand has found like a nest the riches of the people and gathered all the earth.” (This occurs in the tribulation.)
Nehemiah 9:22 “You gave them kingdoms and nations and divided them into districts.”
Genesis 11:6 “The Lord said, ‘Indeed the people are one and they all have one language and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.” (God’s destruction of Babel follows)
Revelation 17:13 “These (nations) are of one mind and they will give their power and authority to the beast. They will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings and those who are with Him are called chosen and faithful.”
Psalm 147:14 “He makes peace within your borders...”
1 Kings 8:53 “For You separated them from among the peoples of the earth to be Your inheritance as You spoke by Your servant Moses, when You brought our fathers out of Egypt.”
Ezra 9:1-2 “The people of Israel and the priests and the Levites have not separated themselves from the peoples of the lands, with respect to the abominations of the Canaanites...the holy seed is intermingled with the peoples...” (Judgement follows)
Inter -faith abominations:
The agenda of the inter-faith movement is globalism and world peace. The agenda of the liberals is globalism and world peace.
The cursed inter-faith movement has as its primary agenda, global peace, through coming together and mixing faiths.
The cross is the curse of the inter-faith movement and the globalist, but for true believers, it is power of our God!
Globalism outside of the cross of Calvary is pure hate, because it makes you an automatic enemy of the living God.
A world with separated nations, borders and boundaries on the religious, political, social and moral fronts is not hate. It is true love, because it keeps the hate out.
The only way you can have a true globalist agenda dominating the world is with the cross removed.
Staying safe in the onslaught:
Why do the nations rage, says the Bible? Why do so many Christians reject the Bible? Why are so many blind to the truth and cast it down? It’s because they have no fear of the Lord. You can’t see or understand the word of God without the fear of God!
Great terrifying fear is coming to the world soon. It will be a hopeless, tormenting fear. But the fear of the Lord required in us, His family, is safe, enduring, knowledge-building and full of blessed hope.
A beautiful surrender to our Lord and all His ways is the way of safety.
These issues have been thrust onto the world prophetic stage suddenly. The entire anti-globalist, anti-Muslim migration agendas are right before us. The US has spoken, Europe is speaking and other nations are lining up to speak.
The war machine is warming up. “Hooks” are waiting in the wings!
The stage curtain or veil continues to lift. The veil of blindness on the Jews continues to lift slowly.
What exciting times! (I just wish it would all hurry up already!)
As far as all these things go, bear in mind that where “sin abounds, grace does much more abound.” (Romans 5:20)
I took this picture, getting in close, of the old white rhino in the Umfolozi Game Reserve.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 340: November 30th 2016
In looking at the picture above and the title, don’t get the wrong idea!
This edition contains some deadly serious things, but in total, it is very liberating and positive.
Spiritual darkness is approaching fast. Spiritual light is still here but it is getting dim.
John 12:35-36 “A little while longer the light is with you. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you. He who walks in darkness does not know where he is going. While you have the light, believe in the light...”
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.”
Amos 8:11 “Behold the days are coming says the Lord God, that I will send a famine on the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord.”
It is very easy to fall in the dark. It is very easy to fall into darkness as well. Just do nothing and you will be in the dark!
In the previous edition, I pointed out some of the amazing qualities of light. Now I want to look at the character of darkness.
What is darkness?
Approaching darkness is all about spiritual darkness. We are talking about the symbolism of darkness and not necessarily physical darkness. The Bible is full of analogies, messages and warnings about spiritual darkness.
At the end of the day, darkness is about people. It is about morality, beliefs, traditions and practises. It is about worship. By the way, “worship” comes from two root words meaning work and bowing down in reverence. The Greek version of the word carries the idea of licking the master’s hand like a dog. It means to bow down before one and kiss their hand!
Darkened worship comes from a heart of pride and is all about illegitimate worship and the worship of “another Jesus,” who is all around us today. This “other Jesus” is a good close friend of the sin of the world.
Darkness is synonymous with evil, sin, wickedness, fear and the devil himself. It is also synonymous with ignorance, blindness, gullibility, deception, demon activity and spiritual death.
Darkness is the absence of light.
►The word “darkness” in Hebrew is “Choshek” (Strong’s H2822) It means: A dark place like Hades, misery, destruction, ignorance, wickedness or thick gloominess.
►The word for “darkness” in Greek is “Skotos” (Strong’s G4655) It means: darkened spiritual eyesight, blindness, ignorance of divine things. By extension it can mean: Spiritual ignorance resulting in ungodliness, immorality sin and hell.
►Another word for “darkness” is “Zophos” (Strong’s G2217) It means: Thick darkness of hell, or a dark, gloomy mist.
At the end of the day, everything that has not gone through the light - creating and generating cross of Calvary is darkness no matter how filled with knowledge, intellectualism, human reasoning, or any such thing it is.
The great cause of approaching darkness:
The biggest cause of universal darkness is pride. It always has been so, and still is today. It was the pride of Lucifer that turned him from the “angel of light” into the dark, death-angel! It was the sin of pride that caused the fall in the Garden, which has darkened the blood of mankind ever since.
Jeremiah 13:15-16 “Hear and give ear; do not be proud, for the Lord has spoken. Give glory to the Lord your God, before He causes darkness, and before your feet stumble on the dark mountains, and while you are looking for the light, He turns it into the shadow of death and makes it dense darkness.”
What a powerful verse this is above! What a warning to all who would care to read it and study it! In fact, a study of the original word meanings is a lot more than enlightening! The great tragedy and the subject of this edition, is that few will even bother with a verse like this, and continue their blind, dark march to hell.
The cause of today’s approaching darkness is the stupidity of intellectual presumption. But pride has blinded their eyes. They can’t see or hear the speaking word of God. Some even look for the light in their own strength and human wisdom. A dense shadow of spiritual death hangs over them like a dark shadow that they can’t get rid of.
Today the love of sin stands in the way of many seeing the light and getting saved. The love of sin blocks the light from coming in. The love of sin causes darkness. The love of sin comes through the removal of God’s truth.
The post-truth era, the modern world is in, has produced a digital age of instant everything. There’s nothing wrong with sliced bread and pop-up toast, but there is no such thing as instant pop-up Christians.
Many people subconsciously think that they’re okay because they aren’t as bad as this person or that one.
Many will receive a huge shock when they land in hell and discover that their idea of being “good” and acceptable to God, which was comparing themselves among themselves, is wrong.
This is the problem with many dark churches also.
2 Corinthians 10:12 “We dare not class or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they measuring themselves by themselves and comparing themselves among themselves are not wise.”
Darkness is approaching because the light of the church is getting dim.
The duty of the church is to keep itself pure and to keep deception out. The entire book of Acts is about establishing the church and coming against those who attacked it. Here is a classic:
Acts 13:8-11 “Elymas the sorcerer withstood them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the faith. Then Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit looked intently at him and said, ‘O full of deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord? And now indeed the hand of the Lord is upon you and you shall be struck blind not seeing the sun for a time. And immediately a dark mist fell on him, and he went around seeking someone to lead him by the hand.”
Hatred for God:
This includes many Christians and entire churches and denominations.
The problem today is that ignorance of God’s word and the Spirit of God as the author has left people without any real authority except that of man and his stupid opinions.
There is godly authority in truth enlightened by the Spirit of God.
The church has an authority problem because it has largely ignored many truths. Man and his opinions are now the new God.
Much of man’s authority today, with many truths removed, is no different to pure witchcraft.
People hate God and His word because they love sin and evil. But the Bible says there is pleasure in sin for a season only. How stupid can you be to reject eternal life, purity and holiness in favour of fleeting pleasures for five minutes?
What the world wants is equality between sin and holiness, right and wrong. People want God but not His ways. They want an unholy, sin loving God. They want an evil God. They want a God with no cross. They want Barabbas. They have him! His name is Satan.
Evil minds see things that don’t exist. Many people today have a God that does not exist. They have created him their way.
Remember what Satan said in the Garden? He said, “You can be as God”. You can decide what truth is. Adam bought the lie as do the masses today.
My friends, it’s a very stupid thing to interfere with God’s truth. Many would not believe the following verses for one second – to their eternal detriment:
Acts 28:26-27 “Go to this people and say: Hearing you shall hear and not understand; and seeing you will see and not perceive; for the heart of this people has grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing and their eyes have closed, lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, lest they should understand with their heart and turn, so that I should heal them.”
Romans 1:21-26 “Although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools...Therefore God also gave them up...they exchanged the truth of God for a lie...they became homosexuals (verse 26).”
Please note, that in this discourse in Romans chapter one, exchanging the truth of God for the lie (that homosexuality is okay) brings the wrath of God.
John 8:43 “Why do you not understand My speech (word)? Because you are not able to listen to My word. You are of your father your devil...”
John 8:47 “He who is of God hears God’s words; therefore you do not hear because you are not of God.”
Proverbs 4:19 “The way of the wicked is like darkness, they do not know what makes them stumble.”
In these incredible verses above, do you see that there are conditions to be met if you want to see the light? I hope you see that it is God Himself who blinds the eyes and makes people deaf to His word and ways, who refuse His conditions.
The church today is growing only in some quarters. In most of the western nations, the dying denominational churches continue to fall by the wayside. Most Spirit-filled churches are where the growth is. Large numbers, thankfully, are seeking to be identified as Christian Zionists and those with a Messianic character and flavour (without falling into the trap of coming under the law).
But the end-time church of Laodicea is growing like vomit in the stomach, about to be spewed out.
The problem is that many churches have changed the truth, watered it down, cast it out, interfered with it and interpreted it with the spirit of Adam, humanism and not the Spirit of God.
Matthew 6:23 “If the light in you is really darkness, how great is that darkness.”
This church has no authority in the world or with and against the devil. They are a cheap pushover, full of spineless, undisciplined, poisonous brats, calling themselves Christians. They are no more Christian than the devil himself.
Isaiah 7:9 “...If you will not believe, surely you will not be established.”
John 3:19 “This is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”
A life of spiritual substance is required by God, opposed to a life of spiritual emptiness and nothingness. People think that materialism is substance. How wrong they are! That is pure poverty. Of course there is nothing wrong with needed things, but in an empty life that poverty is intensified.
The fear of God:
You can’t fear God as required if your belief system about God is all messed up. You need to know the truth and believe the right things to be safe.
The fear of God is one of the most powerful attributes and requirements for a successful Christian life. It is taught very little these days, which is evident by the dark churches hidden in the bushes rather than up on the hill spreading light.
Many people have a totally false idea of who God is, largely due to being taught by blind wolves. Satan did not kill the homosexuals in the days of Lot, God did. Likewise it was God who destroyed Babel, Babylon and the whole world in Noah’s day – not Satan.
When you see and understand the coming wrath of God in the tribulation, that’s a wake-up call. When you see and understand that He has the keys for your eternal home, that’s a wake- up call.
Bible prophecy teaches and gives you many things. It gives you hope, encouragement, the fear of God and great eternal success and victory.
Proverbs 8:13 “The fear of the Lord is to hate evil; pride, arrogance and every evil way, and the perverse mouth I hate.”
Proverbs 14:26-27 “In the fear of the Lord there is strong confidence, and His children will have a place of refuge. The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to avoid the snares of death.”
Psalm 19:9 “The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever.”
The danger of darkness
The huge danger of spiritual darkness lies in the fact that the enemy can see clearly in the dark! You can’t unless you have the spiritual gifts required. Otherwise you are blind to the attacks of the enemy.
The mass media and their off-shoot, the social media, are today attacking from their homes of darkness. They are pouring out their deception and most have no idea.
But as a true believer walking in the light, you get miracle eyes to see in the dark if you meet the spiritual conditions.
Psalm 139:12 “Even the darkness is not dark to You; the night is as bright as the day, for darkness is as light within you.”
Psalm 18:28 “For You will light my lamp; the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.”
The ill-equipped Christian in these days is a sitting duck target for the devil, the god of this world.
My friends, we are in fast moving prophetic times. What many are unaware of is the battle on the go in the spiritual realm. There is a great, intensifying spiritual battle on the go in the heavens. There is a battle on the go for you and me. There is a battle on the go against the truth of God’s word.
Matthew 22:29 “You are mistaken not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.”
►Let me warn you with the same warning I’ve issued a number of times. I warn you, I warn you, I warn you: Dark deception is increasing fast. If you do not know it, see it and deal with it, through spiritual warfare, your deception will deepen to the point where you won’t escape from it.
It is knowing the truth of God’s word and knowing it well, that gives you power – even the power of God to live right in these days.
The tragic war to end all wars!
No it’s not WW111, although that will be so and soon. It’s the war on believers which is on the go even now. Christians are marching to war, blindfolded, with no spiritual weapons and no armour! Most don’t even know a war is on the go, others have surrendered already. Others do not know how to keep rank. Others think God has told them what’s going on, when they are really blind to the truth.
Some sit in the sin of silence on the sidelines with nothing to say, against the big sin issues of today, being a solid friend of sin. Like the Catholic church, silent during the Holocaust, so many think that their silence has absolved them. Their silence has in fact condemned them.
In the previous edition entitled “The light of life” I described the special light just for the Jews and the land of Israel. Now let’s look at their darkness and coming of the light.
What follows is most important indeed and is in fact the cause of the Holocaust, anti-Semitism and its Christian off-shoot, replacement theology.
●●Isaiah 42:16 “I will bring the blind (Jews) by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them...”
●●Micah 7:8-9 “Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; when I fall I will arise, when I sit in darkness the Lord will be a light to me...He will bring me forth to the light, and I will see His righteousness.”
●●Isaiah 29:18 “In that day the deaf (Jews) shall hear the words of the book and the eyes of the blind shall see out of the obscurity of darkness.”
The great key is this: The Lord brings the Jews back into their land – Israel in spiritual blindness and darkness. As you see in the all-important verses above, He brings them back, blind, then the veil begins to lift and they come to spiritual light and sight.
The world, including much of the church can’t see this and has no understanding of it. This is one of the reasons for their hatred of the Jews. They think that God has given up on them and replaced the Jews with the church, because they are still in the dark.
Replacement theology in the church is of an evil spirit. It is the same spirit as Hitler. Yes it is, and it is in these churches. It is the same spirit as Satan himself masquerading in his camouflage uniform. Ministers of replacement theology may just as well wear a Nazi uniform behind their dark pulpits.
Most of the churches of replacement theology will go into the tribulation period.
Romans 11:12-15 “If their (Jews) fall is riches for the world and their failure is riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness? If their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be, but life from the dead?”
The glorious answer:
2 Corinthians 6:14 “Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?”
Ephesians 6:12 “We do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in high places.”
1 Thessalonians 5:4 “You brethren are not in the darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.”
I hope you have noticed that this edition is essentially about the separation between light and dark, right and wrong, truth and error. As we walk in separation from worldliness and in the truth, all sorts of wonderful things happen. We are set free. We are free indeed.
The other side of the story is that spiritual darkness is a prison. There is no freedom inside. The keys to get into the prison are pride, arrogance, ignorance, deception and refusal to accept all of God’s word.
The keys to get out of the prison are humility, fear of the Lord, surrender to His Spirit and word, and love for the truth.
Proverbs 4:19 “The way of the wicked is like darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble.”
Great, deep spiritual darkness is coming. It will ensnare and trap many. You do not have to be one of them. You can and must apply the correct truth, verses and principles to be safe and free in these coming dangerous days.
Psalm 42:7-8 “Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; all Your waves and billows have gone over me. The Lord will command His loving kindness in the daytime, and in the night His song shall be with me.”
I took this picture of a large herd of springbok in the Kalahari Desert.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 339: November 23rd 2016
The Light of Life:
The Light of Life:
Psalm 119:130 “The entrance of Your word gives light and understanding to the simple.”
Light is alive! Light emits heat! Light has molecular substance to it! Light destroys darkness! Light has more qualities than you can imagine, some of which are the subject of this edition.
Both light and darkness are rich with meaning and symbolism. Some of it is a lot more than symbolism as you will see.
There are some things in this edition that will surprise you indeed!
There is a shocking theme in the Bible, which very few are aware of. It is that both God and the devil blind people. It is God alone who causes spiritual light, sight and understanding, but only to selected people for particular reasons with conditions met.
Who can see the light?
Anyone who is genuinely searching for our Lord and has a truly open heart will see the Light!
All those who are walking in surrender to our Lord, taking up their cross daily, can see the light.
All who have their own minds made up, have hard hearts to the truth and are full of themselves, are blind to the light and truth.
Psalm 69:32 “The humble shall see and be glad.”
John 18:37 “...Everyone of the truth hears my voice.”
Job 38:15 “From the wicked their light is withheld...”
The make-up of light:
Light, which is part of the electromagnetic spectrum, is vital for sight, both in the natural world and spiritually speaking. Visible light is made up of seven colours. When they are projected together through a prism, white light is produced. That is an enduring mystery.
The Hebrew and Greek languages contain many words that have a number of different meanings. You need the context to get the right one, and you need to study it as well.
►The word “Light” in Hebrew is “Owr.” (Strong’s H216). It has a few meanings and applications, some of which are: “The light of life”, “The light of the face”, “The light of Israel”, “The light of wisdom.”
►Another Hebrew word for “Light” is the word “Ma’owr.” (Strong’s H3974). It means a luminous light coming from within. (Bear that in mind as you read on.)
►The Greek word for Light is “Phos.” (Strong’s G 5457). It means: “A light emitted from a lamp.” “It also means a heavenly, supernatural, brilliant light”. It also means: “Creating understanding and spiritual enlightenment”. It also means: “The light of a stone or rock coming from within itself”. It parallels with G5316 and G5346, meaning luminous.
So, we see that light is likened to spiritual life, purity, holiness, sight and understanding. Light equates to the life of God and a rock that emits light from within.
A powerful exposition involving our old friend Noah:
God told Noah exactly how to build the Ark.
The word “Ark” in Hebrew is “Teva”. It is the same word for “word”. This speaks of the exactness of our words. God gave Noah the exact dimensions of the Ark. In a sense we can say that our words are arks, carrying and preserving God’s will and ways, while we float over all that is under the judgement of God.
God told Noah to make a window in the Ark. (Genesis 6:16) But in Hebrew it says, “You shall make a “brightness” in the Ark. The original word used is “Tzohar”, which can be translated as “window.” It is also one of the words for “light” or “brightness.”
The Ark had three levels in it, so would have been pretty dark, which is why God said to make a window in it.
Here is an amazing thing:
The word “Tzohar” means “window”. But it is also the word for a special stone that has its own light within it. So when we see the command of God in Genesis 6:16, to “make a window in the ark”, it also means to make a “brightness from glowing, luminous stones within it.”
These stones (Tzohar) giving off light, contain phosphorescence causing the luminous, glowing from within. The light of these stones is enduring, it never goes out. In Hebrew, these stones are also called the “Gems of Noah” or the “Lights of Heaven”. They are also called “Stones of Fire.”
So, now we see that the Ark of Noah had lights on the inside! – Isn’t that a surprise?
But don’t forget what I said earlier. The Hebrew word for Ark is “Teva”, which is also one of the words for “word.”
Do you see where we are going?
This means that we are to open a window into our words, so that they shine brightly from within! When words have the light of God within them, they are powerful, glowing, and enduring.
Have you ever wondered why when some people speak, you feel as though you are hearing from God? You feel refreshed, changed, and made new. And when others speak, they may as well be reading to you from the phone book! They have no light in their words!
This also sheds light on the difference between the two Greek words for “word”, which are, “logos” and “rhema.” Logos is ordinary words. Rhema is revelation word with spiritual understanding. We could liken these to the normal spoken words and words being generated from God’s own living word in our hearts.
The Hebrew word “Tzsohar” has a very similar derivative, “Tsahar”, which suggests the “glistening shine from pure olive oil”. This is another type of God-filled, anointed, words and ways!
Words infused with God’s light are to glow and shine out and up. They make your words “brilliant” and “glistening” in the true sense!
So here we see a dramatic link-up between words, light and the Ark of preservation. The major point to be made is that ordinary light coming into your life does not get you saved. Once you are born-again, you have that real internal light being generated of God right in your heart.
The glorious Menorah:
The Temple Menorah has 72 ornaments on it. There were 72 pure gold bells on the Temple Priest’s garment. There are 72 names of God in the Bible. The Menorah is a giant symbol of the light of God.
Like the Ark, God gave specific instructions for the making of the Temple Menorah.
It was to be made of one single, unbroken, enormous piece of pure 24 karat gold, weighing 3000 shekels .
This piece of pure gold had to be hammered into shape. There is a strong type and association with our Lord, whose symbol is gold, and who is the true Light, being “hammered” to His cross.
The Menorah stood in the Holy Place of the Temple, which was next to the Holy of Holies. The light source from the seven branches was pure olive oil, which was constantly filled by Temple Priests to keep the light going all the time, illuminating the inside of the Temple. (Exodus 27:20)
The central shaft and lamp had to be raised above the other six. It was used to light the others. It was called the “servant light”. It is our Lord, the servant of God who gives light to the world. He is the “Light of life.”
The Temple Menorah is similar to the story we have just seen on the light within the Ark. The light of the Menorah, as with the Ark, was not seen from the outside, but only by those inside the holy chamber.
The symbolism here is that we are hidden in the world. They can’t see our light, only the effects of it, and only if they want to.
Colossians3:3 “For you died and your life is hidden with Messiah in God.”
The Menorah represents our Lord Himself, who, in the Revelation, is seen walking between the seven candlesticks, which are the church. The olive oil represents the Holy Spirit and our salvation and ongoing power.
The Menorah symbolises light, life, purity, exactness, holiness, wisdom and divine inspiration.
Jewish tradition today still requires a Menorah to be lit and placed in every Jewish home on Chanukah.
You can contrast this with the witchcraft, pagan, occult tradition of the church, born in Babylon and Rome of hanging lights on Christmas trees to illuminate the gold and silver balls symbolising sun and moon worship.
Today, the Temple Menorah has been rebuilt and manufactured according to the specifications of God, with pure gold. It now stands awaiting instillation in the soon to come new Temple. It is valued at over $3million.
My friends, without the light and flame of the olive oil fire, the Holy Spirit – you are dead and dark, with dead, empty, meaningless words filling your life. You are a nothing! With the light of life in your heart, even if you are a nothing in the world’s eyes, you are a glorious king or queen of God, and will be forever!
Lucifer, the light bearer:
Lucifer was an archangel of God. The name itself means “light bearer.” He was God’s messenger of light to the nations! These were the nations upon the earth in pre-Adamic times. I’m not going to get into all of that now, except to say that when he appeared in the Garden, he had already fallen, been stripped of his light and was now Satan, the prince of darkness.
Isaiah 14:12 refers to Lucifer as “Heylel,” meaning “shining one,” or the “light bearer”. In the Greek the word is “eosphoros” meaning “the bringer of the dawn” or “the morning star (Venus).
Lucifer, the light bearer, because of his pride and rebellion, became the bearer of darkness, death and destruction. (There’ll be more on this in the next edition.)
Matthew 6:23 “If the light in you is really darkness, how great is that darkness.”
Lucifer, the light bearer was now the cursed deceiver, the one who now comes to the gullible as an “angel of light”, but bringing spiritual darkness.
1 John 1:5 “God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.”
John 8:12 “I (Yeshua) am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”
Light, life and blood:
“Life is in the blood,” says the Bible, (Leviticus 17:11.) But the blood of Adam flowing in us has death and the curse of God in it too. The sins of all mankind reside in this cursed blood, which produces the sin nature.
If you are not saved, you can try to be right and good all you like – until you are blue in the face, but you can’t because of your dark blood.
Thank the Lord that His pure, shed blood, full of light, is now imputed to us and “transfused” into our hearts. Through the new-birth, we have His pure blood in us, albeit spiritually. Our Lord’s blood is filled with light, because it is sinless and pure.
It was His shed pure and holy blood that paid the price for us and gives us salvation.
Through the new-birth, His sinless blood cancels out the sin-cursed blood of Adam in people.
The blood of our Lord is now the light-producing power, giving sight, enlightenment, revelation and the wisdom of God, just like those stones in the Ark and the light of the Temple Menorah.
John 8:47 “He who is of God hears God’s words; therefore you do not hear because you are not of God.”
Romans 13:12 “... Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.”
Spiritual light is “armour”. It destroys spiritual darkness and ignorance, but protects us also. It is required for our stability, strength and growth in our Lord. It is especially required now in these dangerous end-days.
Psalm 36:9 “In your light we see light.”
The light of God, or the darkness of the devil in Christians:
Do you want to know if you are in the light of God? If so, you will hate sin, love holiness and desire with all your heart to be pure, in the truth, and holy in all your ways. You may not be achieving it yet, but it will be your heart’s desire. Your words will prove it.
It is this that draws people to you and chases some away. That’s the way it must be.
If you as a Christian are in the darkness of the devil, you won’t be able to comprehend (understand) those in the light! You will be a supporter of the LGBT movement and other satanic issues designed to bring down a “nation under God.”
You will justify sin and love all sinners in their sin, with their sin and hate those of the truth. You will say that you love everyone, but you are a liar. You will love everyone but those of the truth, who speak the truth and take up their cross daily.
The temples that stood on the Temple Mount were very important in that they represented the presence of God in the Holy of Holies. It was all about holiness. The High Priest, the only one allowed in, would have been struck dead if he didn’t meet Gods holy requirements while inside.
Today we are the temple of the Holy Spirit. His holy presence is in our hearts. The light and life of God in us is holy and pure and without sin of any description. In and through the new-birth, we are 100% perfect, pure, sinless and holy.
If you are truly born of the Spirit of God, do you know why you sometimes have that ultra-exiting, strange, odd, glorious feeling that you’re not even here on this planet? Do you know why you sometimes feel like an excited, total oddball, unable to fit in with the world? Do you know why you sometimes feel like a cross between an insane weirdo and an excited madman?
Do you know why you sometimes feel like you’re standing on the very edge of the ledge on a cliff looking down to impending doom, and up to untold majesty and glory?
Do you know why some in your family hate you with a passion, especially the religious ones?
Do you know why some of your friends just can’t understand you and fit you into their box?
Do you know why some of your friends, just love you, even though they can’t box you?
Do you know why some of them secretly wish they could be like you?
Do you know why you are so important to them, even if they drive you up the wall sometimes?
It’s all because you have that perfect, pure, wonderful life and light of God in your hearts. It’s glorious, infectious, contagious, and offensive to the devil.
Proverbs 18:21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”
The light of Israel:
As we saw earlier the word “Light” in Hebrew is “Owr” (Strong’s H216). It has as one of its applications and meanings, “The light of Israel”.
It implies that the Jewish people have available to them a special light. This light is the word of God and specifically the prophetic word, written and detailed for them alone. It is a national light available only to them! If you don’t like that – tough luck, it’s the way it is.
●●Isaiah 42:16 “I will bring the blind (Jews) by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them...”
●●Micah 7:8-9 “Do not rejoice over me (Jews), my enemy; when I fall I will arise, when I sit in darkness the Lord will be a light to me...He will bring me forth to the light, and I will see His righteousness.
●●Isaiah 29:18 “In that day the deaf (Jews) shall hear the words of the book and the eyes of the blind shall see out of the obscurity of darkness.”
The following verses show how it all ends up. They are not politically correct (that’s why I love them!) They separate and distinguish between the Jews and the other nations. They kick globalism in the head.
Isaiah 42:6 “I the Lord have called you (Jews) in righteousness, and will hold your hand; I will keep you and give you as a covenant to the people, as a light to the Gentiles.”
Acts 13:47 “I have set you to be a light to the Gentiles that you should be for salvation to the ends of the earth.”
Isaiah 60:2-3 “Behold the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you (Jews), and His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.”
Isaiah 9:2 “The people who walked in darkness (Jews) have seen a great light; those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, upon them a light has shined.”
Bible prophecy and light:
2 Peter 1:19 “We also have the prophetic word made more sure, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts.”
The previous verses in the above segment speak of the certainty of hearing things with your ears and seeing with the eyes. Here, the Bible says that we have something even more sure and important than seeing and hearing. It is the realisation that prophecy is the most sure thing in the world.
When you come to this understanding, a great light has just been switched on in your heart. The morning star is the planet Venus, which shines in the darkest part of the night, saying that full daylight is on the horizon of your heart.
Bible prophecy brings to us the light of God. “Yeshua is the spirit of prophecy.” (Revelation 19:10)
The light is soon going to become unavailable. Today we are more than privileged to have a flood of light available to us, yet a great deal of the church is asleep in the light – sang Keith Green!
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.”
Revelation 2:5 “Remember from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lamp stand from its place, unless you repent.”
True light shines on every aspect of your life and shows you the need to repent and make the correct adjustments. If you do not, you are in danger of having your light removed, by God.
I took this picture of a section of the beautiful Mooi River Falls in Kwa Zulu/Natal. It’s an enormous waterfall, but difficult to find and 4x4 access. (“Mooi” means beautiful.)
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 338: November 16th 2016
The Bible isn’t exactly clear on what sort of political system a nation should have, but it does contain many vital principles. In politics we are essentially dealing with the world system, so a theocracy is not required for any nation, but a nation under God is!
In other words, a nation should always have God above its constitution and respect the law of God.
The Bible does come pretty close to spelling out the political system required for the State of Israel, which is what much of this edition is about – and the arising new monster threat to Israel, of which very few are aware.
In this edition I want to have a look at some surprising facts about the politics of God for the nations and for Israel.
I will also look at some of the big principles and philosophies of democracy and related issues.
I’ll also have a further look at some of the issues of the recent US election.
The destruction of globalism:
Globalism is the agenda of Satan and the world’s fiscal and political elite, the establishment, the world’s liberals and others. Globalism sounds so good. It means togetherness, unity and “let’s all love one another right now”. This is the way to build world peace they believe.
Everyone must all be one, in this brave new world, living side by side with LGBTs, university intellectuals, liberal democrats and all people. Globalism creates a strong new world, they believe!
Yes, you can even find globalism in the Bible:
Genesis 11:6 “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing they propose to do will be withheld from them.”
Do you see the power in unity (globalism)? “Nothing will be withheld from them.” That would include world peace. The rest of this portion of scripture goes on to describe God’s destruction of this effort at Babel, including the full destruction of Babylon.
The exact opposite of globalism, God’s way, is revealed in the hated instruction for nations in Acts.
Acts 17:26 “God has made from one blood, every nation (ethnic tribe) to dwell on the face of the earth, and determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, so that they should seek the Lord...”
The Bible is the only book whose system, when applied can make you truly free. All other political systems enslave you to man, under the false promise of peace, liberty and freedom.
There are two major sweeping themes to be aware of now. These are the rejection of globalism by the masses and the rejection of mass Muslim migration into Western nations. These two alone could cause a much bigger crack in the world than many think.
The UK’s Brexit and the US election shows the masses now voting against the establishment. Poland is about to do the same. Votes are coming up in Italy, France and others. They are all expected to show the same swing away from the globalist agendas.
●●●Politics in concert with the mass-media has a massive, deadly agenda which is not to give you peace or make you better. Its agenda and objective is to change you into one of them, so that the devil can walk in and have easy access to you. It is to insert into you their values, lack of virtues and make you a true world-human – a dead machine with God removed.
The agenda of the world’s politics, the mass-media and its rulers is to produce what’s best for Satan.
Liberalism believes that any truth must justify itself before the god of collective human reasoning. Toleration of all things in and with their sin is the highest value of the liberal.
True Christianity is rooted in the supernatural. Liberalism is rooted in naturalism with the “super” (God) missing, and sin at home within.
Liberalism has as its main objective – world peace, but Satan’s way. The uniqueness of the cross is that it separates, and divides between Godly ways and Satan’s.
The catch phrase of all liberals is: “Every day in every way we are getting better and better.”
They all have no answer for sin. They all reject the cross...they have a sin-filled “better.”
When you remove God from a nation or society a horror-inverse begins to take place. Here it is:
The cycle of doom:
There is a well identifiable, repeating pattern in history, which runs from liberty to tyranny. Liberty with God removed becomes tyranny.
Freedom is not real freedom if it allows freedom to be destroyed. That’s Satan’s way.
It is the knowledge of God in the land that produces restraint. (Hosea 4:2) Democracy with God removed becomes intrinsically evil and a system of Satan.
If you want to remain an ignorant, uniformed idiot, just let you primary source of everything be the politicians and mass-media. They are guaranteed to deceive you. If you want to be truly liberated, free, full of truth and holiness, let your primary source be the word of God, the Spirit of God, and put the mass media right down at the bottom of the list.
God’s word on politics:
For your benefit here are some important verses on the politics of God for the Christian:
1 Timothy 2:1-4 “Pray for Kings and all in authority that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour, who desires all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth.”
This verse above, gives us the very purpose of politics under God. It is that we may live a quite, peaceable life in an environment where the gospel can go out unhindered, to get people saved.
Psalm 33:12 “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, and the people whom He has chosen as His own inheritance.”
Note the word “blessed” in the verse above! It comes to a nation whose constitution has respect and reverence for God and His law. Now have a look at the exact opposite in the verse below:
Deuteronomy 28:47-48 “Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joy and gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things, therefore you shall serve your enemies, whom the Lord will send against you, in hunger and thirst, in nakedness and in need of all things; and He will put a yolk of iron on your neck until He has destroyed you.”
Do you see how poverty and failure comes to a nation in the verse above?
Now read the verse below. Note that a nation must have a pro-Israel stance. Do you know that every nation on earth ever, that has not done so, has collapsed or been destroyed somewhere down the line. Some are still awaiting their destruction which is coming soon.
Isaiah 60:12 “The nation and kingdom which will not serve you (Israel) shall perish, and those nations shall be utterly ruined.”
Genesis 12:3 “I will bless those who bless you (Israel) and I will curse those who curse you.”
Democracy will kill Israel, or will it?
That’s an emotive headline. It’s only partially true. Israel’s political system is a multi-party democratic Parliamentary system with an elected President and an independent judiciary.
But here’s the catch, and the reason why the world will go crazy over this issue. The Israeli electorate does not include the people of the so-called “occupied territories.” They do not have voting rights in Israel itself.
The people of the “territories” have their own internal political parties and system. This is why Israel is often (falsely) called an apartheid state.
There are 10.7 million Palestinians in these “territories.” 95% of them are Muslim. They have the fastest growing population in the world.
25% of the Israeli population are Arabs. 81% of them are Muslims. They have full, equal, voting rights if they are resident within the State of Israel itself and not the “occupied territories.” Arabs currently hold ten seats in the Knesset. It is not an apartheid state!
A full, all inclusive, one man, one vote system, including those of the “occupied territories,” would immediately destroy the Jewish State! Israel would become a Muslim state in five seconds, simply due to the numbers.
So what do we do with this conundrum?
Now, I’m again going to intentionally offend many of you.
You have raised democracy to God-status. You think man’s choice is the final answer if it’s in the majority. You blind fools. You deserve to be deceived!
You think that the majority is right, because they are the majority! You think you are wise and can see! In case you didn’t get it – you are blind, stupid fools!
You say (especially all you morons in the UN, EU and others) that the democratic way is to throw all of Israel, including the “territories” into one big melting pot and winner takes all. “That’s democracy”, you say!
Do you know what a constitution is? It is just the same as a covenant. Please go to the button at the top of the page entitled “Teachings” and read “Covenants and Promises” Here I have spelt out God’s eternal, political constitution for Israel. Here's a few:
Deuteronomy 4:40 “You shall keep His statutes and commandments that it may go well with you and with your children after you, and that you may prolong your days in the land which the Lord your God is giving you for all time.”
Deuteronomy 1:8 “See I have set the land before you; go in and possess (Lit=occupy) the land which the Lord swore to your fathers – to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give to them and to their descendants after them.”
Genesis 17:18-21 “Abraham said to God, ‘O that Ishmael might live before You!’ Then God said: “No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendant after him.”
God excludes the so-called Palestinian territories from His constitution!
The UN, EU and others are now looking at a new one-state solution for Israel in light of the continued failure of the two-state solution. But it is this one state, which includes the people of the “territories” as part of Israel.
This would be nothing but the transformation of all of Israel into an Islamic Palestinian State... just what Satan wants!
Israel’s three choices are: ●A One- State Solution. ●A Two- State solution. ●An independent democratic Jewish State excluding the “territories.” Only one, the latter, is God’s choice!
The Palestinians have repeatedly said (and demonstrated), that no Jew will be allowed into an “Islamic Israel”, if it ever came about. Interestingly, the blinded, biased, mass-media, the voice of Satan, has never questioned that extreme Nazi-like apartheid ever. The reason is because they are of the same spirit!
Yet they continuously condemn Israel for its obedience to God’s word and His covenant promises!
Mike Pence: “Israel is not hated for what she does wrong, but for what she does right. Israel is hated by terrorists and the failed states that support them. Israel is hated because she is free.”
You can be very, very sure that the mass media will inspire, influence and motivate the next Holocaust, which they will be partly responsible for creating and supporting!
►God commanded the Jews never to assimilate into the nations of the world in their dispersion. They have never been able to assimilate! Have you ever wondered why? The reason is to preserve their identity, biblical value system with the traditions and convocations of God.
Assimilation has always been forbidden by our Lord.
Zechariah 10:9 “I will sow them among the peoples (nations), and they shall remember Me in the far countries. They shall live together with their children, and they shall return.”
Understand that the dispersion does not mean that God is finished with the Jews or the land, yet the Palestinians today believe the land and the city is theirs! In fact the very purpose for the command not to assimilate, is for the great end-time Second Exodus and return.
What is coming now, very soon is an all out conflict between God’s will and choice and Satan’s.
Will the USA now stand with God’s will and choice? Will the USA facilitate God’s choice for Israel?
So far, it looks like it.
Here is terrible indictment upon the mass-media and the nations that turn from the ways of God:
***Jeremiah 7:28 “This is the nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God, nor receive correction. Truth has perished and has been cut off from their mouth.”
***Jeremiah 8:8-9 “How can you say, ‘we are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us’? ‘Look the false pen of the scribe certainly works falsehood. The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken. Behold, they have rejected the word of the Lord; so what wisdom do they have?’”
Biblical characteristics of Islam:
The following characteristics are derived from the verses listed. They apply to the people who became our modern day Arabs, which in turn is applied to Islam, although obviously not exclusively.
●They live by the sword. (Genesis 27:40-41)
●They live by violence against their brother (Israel). (Obadiah 1:10)
●They are wild men, unrestrained, with their hand against every man. (Genesis 16:12)
●They are scheming, betraying and jealous. (Genesis 25, Genesis 21:9)
Donald Trump is likely to be an end-time surprise, but Muslims will be the big spanner in the works.
The Muslim Brotherhood has already declared the Trump victory a “disaster.” Trump will in turn declare them a terrorist organisation!”
The 45th President of the US – Donald Trump:
►The biggest losers of the US election, without doubt were the mass-media – CNN in particular!
45 is written in Hebrew as “Gavle.” The word means “redemption.” Other meanings include “preservation” and “protection”. One of the numerics websites lists 45 as “world ruler.”
The Trump / Cyrus connection:
Picture above: Cyrus, who facilitated the return of the stolen temple vessels back to Jerusalem and gave the decree to rebuild the temple.
For more on the importance and significance of the Third Temple, see edition 324 HERE.
Cyrus was chosen and used by God for His purposes in spite of the fact that Cyrus was no saint and was a Gentile ruler.
Interestingly, this section below on Cyrus the king of Persia was sent to me from a Persian, (Iranian) Jewish believer!
Cyrus was the Persian king in power when the Jewish captivity in Babylon ended. He was responsible for the destruction of the Babylonian Empire and the return of the Jews, carrying the sacred temple implements and vessels that had been plundered and stolen by the Babylonians, back to Jerusalem.
It was this theft of the sacred temple vessels that caused the “writing on the wall.”
Cyrus was well known for his decree to allow the Jews to rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem.
The name Cyrus means “far-sighted.”
Isaiah 45 is interesting in this regard: (I’ve strung together the relevant verses from the chapter.)
Isaiah 45:1-25 “Thus says the Lord to His anointed, Cyrus, whose right hand I have held – to subdue nations and loose the amour of kings, and to open before him the double doors, so that the gates will not be shut...I will give you the treasures of the darkness and hidden riches of secret places...For Israel’s sake and My elect, I have called you by your name; I have named you though you have not known Me...I will direct all his ways, he shall build My city and let My exiles go free, not for price nor reward, says the Lord of Hosts. Israel shall be saved by the Lord. In the Lord all the descendants of Israel shall be justified and shall glory.”
Obviously we can’t align everything from this chapter 45 with Trump the 45th, but there is enough here, in double reference to draw attention. Here we see a Gentile leader called of God, before he even knows God to subdue nations (Arab nations / UN). He will cause their armour to fall and will open double doors and gates (prosperity). Treasure of the deep may refer to oil wealth. He acts for Israel. This leader will be directed by God at times. He will facilitate the continuance of the Second Exodus of Jews back to Israel and may even cause it, as wars with Muslim nations erupt. He will stand for the salvation of the Jews.
There is much more that is still to be revealed about this new leader’s role and involvement in the rebuilding of the temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
Does God choose perfect people to be political rulers? The answer is no, never.
Psalm 89:19 “...I have exalted one chosen from the people.”
Is it possible that Trump will end up a total disaster? Yes it is, but it’s unlikely. My point is simple. Due to the time period we are in, with all the signs before us, and prophetic fulfilment pointing to the very soon climax of all these things, there just isn’t enough time for this all to be but another brick in the wall.
Regular readers will know, I’ve often slammed the US, but always with a caution. The US may well have a reprieve now and a role in the end-time plan of God.
The US election has revealed a lot more than the winner. It has revealed the deep inner issues of the heart of man. Those who love sin and make political gods of it have been identified. Those who want a return to a more God-defined political world have been identified.
The Trump and Brexit issues have most certainly identified the world-issues, but more than that, they are in the process of polarising them and preparing for a great end-time battle of right and wrong, good and evil, God and the devil!
The new enemy is already emerging in the form of the liberal, one-worlders with the mass-media behind them, with a globalist agenda, an unrestricted pro-Muslim migration agenda. Their agenda is “the acceptable year of sin.” All supported by the blind counterfeit church...the true bastard (illegitimate) church!

Edition 337: November 9th 2016
The amazing messages of the 7 feasts and the 7 churches:
The amazing messages of the 7 feasts and the 7 churches:
Isn’t it amazing that a book written on average, 2000 years ago by a great many authors, is so full of truth and so relevant for us today? So many of its messages are only coming to light now.
For your benefit, in this edition, I’ve presented you with some of these amazing truths and messages that can only be of supernatural origin and design.
The number seven in the Bible means spiritual perfection and completion. We are going to look at the perfect and complete messages to the seven churches and to Israel in the form of the seven feasts.
Some of these messages overlap, but the main point is that they so accurately plot the course of church history and the course of Israel’s history, both culminating in either the tribulation, or heaven and the Millennium.
This is all about signs, symbols, word meanings, numbers, and hidden messages revealing the ultimate glory of God! It’s a message of trumpets, shofars, menorahs, swords, war-cries, rallying- cries, peace, rest and comfort.
There are many today, who deny that these messages have any relevance for the church or Israel today. They are WRONG!
The feasts of the Lord are divine appointments, with divine prophetic messages. The seven letters are divine prophecies.
The essence of the seven letters and the seven feasts:
The seven letters to the seven churches in Revelation chapters two and three, contain messages for those particular seven historic churches. They contain messages for all believers at any time.
But, amazingly they contain hidden messages that plot the entire course of church history, from its birth to its dual conclusion of some into the rapture and some cast into the tribulation.
The messages contained in the seven feasts of the Lord, likewise contain many wonderful messages for us and the Jews today. The feasts also have powerful symbolic messages for the Jews. But perhaps the most powerful, is the messages plotting the entirety of Jewish history from their birth through to the tribulation and the Second Advent and Millennium.
You can’t lump Israel and the church together. Many have tried and ended up in the satanic swamp of replacement theology, unable to get out. God has a central salvation plan for His people. He knew that His Jewish people would reject Him, rebel, fall, go into captivity and dispersion and then return to Him.
His plan takes all of this into account, and ends up being a great success, but it is not the plan for the church. It is only when you separate and distinguish between Israel and the church and apply the relevant verses that everything falls into place.
Church history in the seven letters:
Explanation of diagram:
This view is the plot of church history. The first three churches represent the time period from their beginning up to their end. The following four churches represent the time periods from their start up to the present and beyond.
Much more on the plot of church history is revealed and contained in the fullness of each message.
The first three now contain the “dead in Messiah” and will be part of the rapture. The last four represent the church world today.
●Ephesus: The word means “beloved.” It represents the early church from about 30AD to 100AD.
●Smyrna: The word means “myrrh” or bitterness. It represents the 10 successive persecutions of the early church by the Romans, in which almost the whole church was savagely killed. This was from around 100AD to 315AD and the advent of Constantine.
●Pergamos: The word means “thoroughly mixed.” This represents the beginning of the fall of the church into the dark ages as paganism was mixed into the church. It represents the time from 315AD to about 600AD and the birth of the Catholic church.
●Thyatira: The word means “Perpetual sacrifice.” This represents the perpetual crucifying of our Lord in the Catholic Eucharist. It represents the satanic, Jezebelic control of the church and the separation of the clergy above the laity. It represents the Catholic created dark ages of mass murder from 600AD through to and into the tribulation.
●Sardis: The word means “Escaping.” It represents the unsuccessful reformation era as the church tired to escape the Catholic, satanic darkness. This church is told “it has a name to live but is dead.” It represents the period from about 1500 through and into the tribulation.
●Philadelphia: The word means: “Brotherly love.” It represents the church that has a love for Israel, knows the word. It represents the period from about 1750 to the rapture. The Hebraic flavour of the church is revealed in Philadelphia church. This church also rejects the ministry of rabbinical Judaism.
●Laodicea: The word means “People ruled.” It represents the ecumenical, denominational, Spirit-less, blind, powerless, lukewarm church which is spat out by our Lord. This is the modern church where all is relevant, valid, greyed-out, and without absolutes. It is the time period from about 1900 into the tribulation.
Do you see the entire history of the church wrapped up here? Of course, if you take the trouble to read the seven messages, there is so much more, and it’s amazing indeed.
The course of Israel’s history:
The seven feasts are primarily for Israel, but contain vital messages for the church as well.
Leviticus 23:2 “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: The feasts of the Lord, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, these are My feasts.”
Leviticus 23:44 “So Moses declared to the children of Israel the feasts of the Lord.”
The seven feasts are:
●Passover: This feast has a double reference for the Jews and the church. For the Jews it represents the original Passover and release from Egyptian captivity. For us it is a reminder of that, but is fulfilled in the cross of Calvary – the complete Passover. Jews are still to see this.
●Unleavened bread: This represents sin as seen symbolically in leaven. This feast represents the cleansing of sin, in the eating of unleavened Matzos, which is “spiked and striped”. This is as far as the Jews see things. For us it represents our Lord’s burial.
●Firstfruits: Israel was called the firstfruits of God (Jeremiah 2:3). It represents the giving of the first offering of the harvest. Today this is as far as the Jews can see. For us it represents the resurrection of our Lord from the dead.
●Pentecost: For the Jews, this feast looks back to the first original Pentecost on the day Moses came down from the mountain with the tablets of stone. This was the original birthday of Israel as the law was given in stone. For us it represents the law being given in our hearts and the birthday of the church as seen in the coming of the Spirit.
●Rosh Hashanah: Now things change! This feast represents the end of the church age, the rapture, and the start of the tribulation period. From here on the church is not included in the following feasts because it has no place in the tribulation. This feast represents the start of the massive judgements upon the earth and Israel, as well as the beginning of their spiritual awakening.
●Day of Atonement: This represents the wrath of God and the second half of the tribulation. Some believe it will be fulfilled in the Second Coming. I have no problem with that, but prefer the wrath of God fulfilment, because of all the parallels. The church has no part in any of this.
●Tabernacles: This feast will be fulfilled in the completion of the salvation of the Jews, and the Second Coming, going through into the Millennium.
Do you see the plot of Israel’s entire history right here in these feasts?
Today there are many people who deny the messages of the feasts of the Lord, by saying that they were all fulfilled in and by the church and there is no further fulfilment coming.
These are people of replacement theology – “buyer beware.”
The unholy convocations of the church:
The church has largely ignored the warnings and messages in the seven letters to the churches. It has totally ignored the messages contained in the feasts of the Lord. Instead it has given reverence and all-importance to Satan’s convocations founded in Babylon.
The traditions of the Baal worshippers were taken, some slightly modified others not, by the Catholic church and infused into the church and presented as truth.
To create a Jew-unfriendly church the Catholics introduced many of these evil traditions, which today remain deeply rooted in the church. These include:
●Christmas, ●Easter, ●Lent and others.
The dual message of the seven churches and the seven feasts:
As we look at all these messages together, there are some startling facts we would all do well to take serious note of, because this is God’s view, summation, plot and plan!
We see that only two of the seven churches are safe, Philadelphia and Smyrna. The others are mixed with severe warnings like, “If you don’t repent, you’ll be removed.” If you read through the seven letters in one go you will be shocked to see just how severe and critical it all is.
As we look at the seven feasts we see that because Israel is still largely blind to and rejects the fulfilment of Passover (the cross) they go blindly, unsaved, into the tribulation period.
So here we see the severe destination of the spiritually blind both of the church and Israel.
Many other passages tell us that most (not all) of the Jews will believe in the Messiah in the tribulation, especially towards the close of it. Many, of the church who thought they were saved and land in the tribulation, will also respond positively, but too late to be included in the body called “the church.”
The main point of this exercise is to demonstrate how serious these things are. Do not take any aspect of your salvation lightly. If you are wise, you will often examine yourself against God’s word and the doctrine of Messiah to see if you are still on the right road.
Are you aware that it’s very possible, and probable that the tribulation period will begin next year, 2017? Are you aware that the rapture may well take place next year, 2017? Are you aware that the true born again believers in our Lord, may meet face to face with our great King, and Saviour next year, 2017?
Are you aware the greatest watershed of humanity may occur as early as next year, 2017, with the great majority of the so-called church and all the unsaved plunging headlong into the wrath of God?
Thoughts on a pure true and safe church:
As you can see, Israel without the Lord goes into the tribulation. Significant sections of the church will also go into the tribulation.
Has you minister taught you well?
The greatest aim of a Bible teacher is not to teach, but to break and melt the hearts of the people into the glory of the Lord. It is to exalt, extol, uplift, magnify, reverence and reveal the glory of the Lord. Today, most just teach words. Their words are dead letter filled with ulterior motives and methods of manipulation.
When the truth is properly presented and applied it will break you open and let in the resulting peace right into your heart now! The kingdom is within us, it has already arrived.
One of the great missing doctrines of the Bible today also happens to be the most powerful and is absolutely required to give you spiritual eyes, revelation and godly wisdom. It is the Fear of the Lord! It is one of my personal favourite doctrines.
90% of believers today, perhaps more, have no idea what the fear of the Lord is. The result is that they are unholy, complacent, compromised in their attitude to God. They are not radical for our Lord and are lukewarm, half-baked believers.
The fear of the Lord comes by choice. You must choose to learn it and know it. But it also comes other ways.
One way the fear of the Lord comes is by Bible prophecy. The great prophecies of the world and Israel’s judgement, punishment and coming Holocaust are an earth shattering fear.
Psalm 19:9 “The fear of the Lord is clean (pure), enduring forever.”
You can be saved by God, but never truly fulfilled and moulded into your calling without a great, great God and a solid reverence towards Him.
The lives of many today are a reflection of their ordinary God, invented by their teachers. They’re a spiritual wreck, a mess and more of a product of hell than heaven. Those with a great, monumental, majestic, supremely high and holy God are right with God.
The duty of the church:
A true church will be known by what it allows and by what it roots out, measured by the doctrines of the Bible and not church dogma.
The blood- soaked abominations of the Catholic church through the age have cast a dark, ugly, evil shadow over the church – especially in the eyes of the Jews. Much of this deep, anti-Semitism is prevalent in the church today. It has never been rooted out and spat out of the mouth of the church.
Yes, we know that much of the church will be “spat out” of God’s mouth! But if we spat out the garbage first, things would be a little different.
●We are commanded to “comfort My people (The Jews)” Isaiah 40:1-2. ●We are to make them jealous. (Romans 11:11, 14) ●The gospel is to go to the Jew first. (Romans 1:16) ●“The time to favour Israel has come” (Psalm 102:13)
Today, so much of the church is formed and fashioned by the mass-media. The church believes that to remain relevant to the world today, it must fit in with the beliefs of the world as commanded by the mass-media, especially on all things related to Israel.
The unseen agenda of the media is not to give you information or make you a better more informed person. It is to change you and change your thinking. Their agenda is to make you like them. It is to kill your conscience so that Satan himself has free, easy access to your soul. The agenda of the mass-media is Satan’s!
It is most dangerous to go into the world with no conscience. It is the media that is the great conscience killer.
Today the church highly esteems the heroes of the entertainment world and the voice of the media. They bow down to it. They may as well have them in the pulpit! They have not rooted out the very heart and soul of Satan from their midst.
They are destined for the Great Tribulation!
How to get ready for the Lord’s coming:
First and foremost get off your throne. Dethrone self! Change your thinking. Yes you can, the Bible says you can. Train and discipline your thought life to be a holy place. As you see yourself as “undone” repent and repent again of all known sin. In your thinking, uplift, exalt and embrace the cross of Calvary.
Pray with desperation and fervour to know our Lord more and more and make Him known by your life. Develop an almost automatic attitude of thankfulness to our Lord for all He has done and all He will still do for you. Thankfulness brings the grace of Messiah to you.
Write your progress down. Write your vision. Make it plain before your own eyes. (Habakkuk 2:2) Measure and mark your days. (Psalm 90:12) Be aware of watershed, big signpost areas of your life, where major spiritual accomplishments were achieved.
Psalm 90:12 “Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”
Psalm 39:4 (Amp) “Lord, make me to know my end, and to appreciate the measure of my days, let me know and realise how frail I am – how transient is my stay here.” Verse 7 “Now Lord, what do I wait for and expect? My hope and expectation are in you.”
You can never get true deep satisfaction, contentment and fulfilment in your life by indulging self or living for self, because you will always be outside of God’s plan. Self in the world is Satan’s playground. You can only be content and happy in the world, with self ruling, if you have a seared conscience. (1Timothy 4:2)
The true real gospel must chase you away or set you on fire for our Lord. “You” being self and all it entails.
John 14:16-17 “I will pray to the Father and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him for He dwells with you and will be in you.”
The reason why many people hate our Lord is because He is not like them! So what must they do? They must change their tune fast or try to change our Lord and make Him just like them!
The Lord that many preach is not hated, because He is a man made by the delusional power of evil wolves in the pulpit.
Today, many have never got passed arguing with God’s word, trying to modify it and replace it and make it fit them and their own ideas.
A major requirement in our lives is a simple attitude of thankfulness. True praise and worship emanating from your very heart is born in thankfulness, without which you’ll be able to sing songs, but you won’t be in praise or worship.
Romans 8:14 “Those who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God.”
