Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah and to identify the rift, and the needed restoration. There is much in the church that needs to change before it can be fully reconciled with the Jew. Likewise, changes in Jewish thinking are also needed.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
The tree-huggers delight:
The Bible uses plants, trees, colours, animals, birds, numbers and more to describe people and nations. It is the subliminal symbols that are of great significance and meaning, especially in relation to Israel.
Did you realise that the entire course of Israel’s history is plotted in the trees? There is much more to these symbols and metaphors - for another time.
Here are some amazing messages blowing in the wind, relating to Israel.
►The Olive tree: (Romans 11)
These trees have very deep, well established roots. They are sometimes called eternal trees, because they are so hardy; they live for many thousands of years. An ancient olive tree appears to die, but then miraculously, new shoots appear out of the dead wood continuing its existence.
The olive tree produces a rich olive oil which has numerous uses, but is also a type of the Holy Spirit. Olive oil is required to keep the temple menorah flames burning. This symbolises light. Olive tree leaves are symbols of peace. Remember the dove bringing back an olive branch to the ark after the flood of judgement.
The root of the olive tree is symbolic of God Himself. The root is called, “holy.”
Biblically, there are two olive trees of importance. The natural olive tree, is symbolic of Israel, and the wild olive tree, is symbolic of the church. The wild olive branch was “grafted” into the natural olive tree, thus partaking of the goodness of the root.
The national emblem of Israel includes two olive branches.
An ancient olive tree grove:
►The Fig tree:
The fig tree is symbolic of spiritual fruitfulness after severe pruning or judgement. It relates to Israel in the tribulation period, awakening to spiritual life.
The fig tree is unique in that its blossoms appear before the leaves. It should have fruit appearing before the leaves. This is why our Lord cursed the unfruitful fig tree, causing it to die. The root was not destroyed though, and a new tree full of fruit, is about to appear.
When the disciples asked out Lord what would be the sign of His coming, He listed a number of judgements to fall on the world. But one of these was the sign of the fig tree.
Matthew 24:32-34 “learn the parable of the fig tree: When is branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that the summer is near. So also you when you see all these things, know that it is near, even at the very doors. Assuredly, I say to you, ‘this generation (of Jews) will be no means pass away till all these things are fulfilled.’”
Present day Zionism and the awakening of the Jews, as well as modern anti-Semitism are signs of the fig tree putting forth leaves and about to produce much spiritual fruit.
►The Almond tree:
The almond is the first tree to flower in its season, which at the end of winter. The flower has five petals to it, five being the number of grace. The temple menorah, a symbol of light, has oil cups or containers in the shape of almond flowers.
The Hebrew word for “almond” is “shakeid” which also means to “awake” and “watch”.
The almond is symbolic of Messiah’s resurrection. It speaks of the supernatural power of God as seen in Aaron’s almond branch that budded in one day. (Numbers 17:8)
Jeremiah 1:11-14 “The word of the Lord came to me saying, ‘Jeremiah, what do you see?’ I said, ‘I see the branch of an almond tree.’ Then the Lord said, ‘you have seen well for I am about to perform My word.’ And the word of the Lord came to me a second time, saying, ‘what do you see? And I said, a boiling pot and it is facing away from the north.’ Then the Lord said to me: ‘Out of the north calamity shall break forth on all the inhabitants of the land.’”
The message here is that as the almond (Israel) flowers and buds she will be plunged into the tribulation period.
Jeremiah 31:28 “It shall come to pass that as I have watched over them to pluck up, to break down, to throw down, to destroy and to afflict them, so I will watch over them to build and plant says the Lord. In those days they shall say no more, ‘The fathers have eaten sour grapes...’”
Psalm 80:8-9 “You have brought a vine out of Egypt, You have cast out the nations and planted it. You prepared room for it, and caused it to take deep root and it filled the land.”
This vine, Israel, is described as “the choicest vine.” But it is a vine that also has within it a “winepress.” (Isaiah 5:1-2) The “winepress” speaks of the crushing tribulation to come!
God planted Israel as a “noble vine” of the highest quality, yet it became an alien, degenerate vine. This speaks of Israel's rebellion to Messiah. (Jeremiah 2:21)
As with the olive and the fig tree, the vine will bear its good fruit in its time, which is just around the corner!
►Other trees symbolic of Israel:
Joel 1:12 (Context: Israel is invaded in the tribulation period) “The vine has dried up and the fig tree has withered; and the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the apple tree. All the trees of the field have withered. Surely joy has withered away from the sons of men.
But we know that Israel's story does not end in the tribulation. Joy will return.
The Cedar: Symbol of power, royalty and majesty. The Oak: Symbol of strength and stability. The Palm: Symbol of military victory and victory in Messiah. The Pomegranate: Symbol of abundance and joyfulness. The Acacia: Symbol of beauty. The Myrtle: Symbol of God’s favour and blessing.
The grand summary:
Israel is: Deeply rooted in God with an eternal future. Israel contains the light-producing oil of the Spirit of God and soon will be Messiah’s light of the world! Israel will be at peace soon. The church is a “wild” family member of Israel through our joint root in God. Israel will become fully fruitful after pruning. Israel’s ripening fruit is a sign of Messiah’s coming. Israel will bud and come to life supernaturally in a day and then bring the light of salvation to the Gentile world. Israel will go through the winepress of tribulation, be attacked from the north and fall under calamity, because she was the choicest, noble vine and yet gave herself to paganism. (Baal) Finally Israel will fulfil God’s call and plan in power, majesty and strength, abundance, and blessing.
All of this is revealed in the nature of this forest of trees, and the corresponding Bible verses. How can you not be a tree-hugger!
Edition 470: May 21st 2019
These are words of life!
We are now in prophetic times of great importance with many powers, spiritual forces of deception and many spiritual dangers. What is your world-view and against what or whom is it measured? (2 Corinthians 10:12)
When you let a cat out of the bag, you can catch it and put it back again. When you let a genie out of the bottle, its smoke dissipates like a prowling, stalking ghost and you can’t put it back again.
Modern man, unrestrained is getting worse fast, and its spreading just as fast. (Hosea 4:1-2) Only active spiritual warfare will keep you safe. Don’t underestimate the dangers.
There is a new end-time hostility between the politics of the left, the right and the centre. There is another position though, and that is to be a non-participant! But you can and must always be a prayer warrior in these things.
The end of end-time politics will demonstrate perfectly the failure of the left, the right and the centre. It will demonstrate the failure of the god of democracy itself, because its major participant the true God has been replaced.
It will demonstrate the failure of super-weapons, the A-bomb, stealth and cyber technology. It will usher in great destruction, and it will demonstrate the full and final victory and triumph of the kingdom of God.
Of course God does use politicians for His purposes. He is using President Trump now. God raises up and brings down world leaders according to His will. (Daniel 2:21) Generally, they will all fail!
End-time politics will finally prove once and for all that fallen man is fallen and cannot save himself. It will demonstrate how incredibly dangerous it is to be in battle, blind as a bat and ignorant as hell.
For the believer the contrast could not be more startlingly different.
“We will be like Him” says the Bible, in supernatural, incorruptible, resurrection bodies. We will “know all things.” We will be totally invincible. We will have arrived!
People want to be right. True believer will soon be right, never wrong on anything again ever.
We as true believers are the right light shining in the world warts and all.
One of the main reasons the world must get rid of God and His people is so that no light shines into the world’s darkness.
Politics believes it can bring a better life, liberated from its problems.
The lie of the liars of liberation is that they can and will bring liberation to the masses. All they can and will do is bring deeper bondage and captivity of the masses to their cursed god of curses.
There are certain things that are politically and spiritually neutral, but there are some things that bring specific curses with them. How can a politician promise blessing from a cursed source? (Some issues that generate curses include: Promotion of homosexuality and LGBT, coming against Israel, all forms of witchcraft, legalism and much more).
The evil agenda:
The purpose of devil is to break the world (or a nation under God) free, from moral anchors of God.
Satan as the god of this world, (including politics) comes to “kill, steal, destroy and lie”. With these traits come the fruits of pride, stress, anxiety, guilt, hatred and much more.
The end of the socialist agenda and the work of the devil is control, but it is actually more than that. It is control so that he can kill and destroy that which is of God. He can’t get to the heart of the believer, but he causes his destruction all around and in the world.
Our Lord is the way the truth and the life. (John 14:6) With this come the fruits: Love joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. (Galatians 5:22-23) Humility before God and His word generates peace and calm.
Satan’s way (and the way of religion) is to work from the outside to the inside. It is to get the individual to do and obey certain laws, beliefs and principles of the world, so that he tows the line.
The born-again Christian has within him, the perfection of God in his spirit. The fruits of this then diffuse from the inside to the outside in our lives. If this is so, which it is, the rapture of the church will remove all of this in a blinding flash. Do you see what I see?
This is exactly what Satan wants in the world. He wants to destroy this perfection of God and its fruits and its people. Tragically, for the world left behind after the rapture, Satan will use those left behind to form his new godless world, rich in sin and evil and now with no resistance, because the church has gone.
Think about this: To “advance” Satan must get people to come together, believe and do the same things; all influenced externally, hence the media!
The curse of the media:
The media has is Satan’s mouthpiece to the masses, because he is the god of the world.
Today the media is a willing, leading participant in casting down the truth of God’s word, making a mockery of those who believe it. Here is a classic example of how the media twists things.
Choice involves discrimination. If you chose a purple balloon instead of a green one, that is discrimination against the green balloon. But it is only a “charged” issue when it is made a socio-political issue by the media. They believe in free choice, as long as the choice is theirs. If your choice is not their choice, you are accused of discrimination against green balloons.
Misinformation is a curse of the media, but no information is just as bad resulting in masses going astray. The mass-media are experts at selective journalism to paint their picture their way.
Spiritual ignorance will keep you in bondage to the world and its demons.
If the world knew what was good for it, it would preserve and protect biblical truth, even if they are not saved themselves!
Why should the world protect and preserve Christians and Jews: They have the blessing of God upon them and locked into them. That blessing spreads into families, businesses, entire communities and nations. It is contagious and can transform an entire nation from curse to blessing. God’s word has every answer to all your problems.
Yet today the politics of the world is coming against God and His own people!
►Godly wisdom, like gold, is the purest, oldest form of genuine wealth there is. It is an immense store of value that is indestructible. It pays great dividends! Follow those who have it.
Some churches today are doing wonderfully and serving the Lord for His glory, but many others, particularly in the west have become flea-ridden. (Fleas come from wolves)
There are two questions you should ask your pastor: “What are your views on homosexuality? What are your views on the Palestinians?” One relates to morality and the other to the socio-political prophetic realm. Both offer great insights into where he stands with God.
The answer to these two questions alone, demonstrates if he exalt human rights and the opinions of man above God’s word, which itself demonstrates much more about him.
If you go home after church scratching like crazy, you’ve got fleas, and you know where they came from! Time to find a clean church!
Today there is a big push to get rid of obstacles to Satan’s new world order of so-called peace. To them, peace is the absence of resistance and opposition, especially from God and His holiness.
The world has become dedoctrinated of God’s word, and indoctrinated with complacency mediocrity and evil. (The word “dogma” is the word for doctrine.) It is dogmatic.
The mass-media is not the defender of human rights. It is the defender of godless human rights. Have you ever heard the media criticise Satanism? The hidden agenda of the media is to create blindness, to all things spiritual and of God, so that a nation under God can be transformed into a nation under Satan, ready to be controlled, and then ultimately destroyed.
►Truth’s attackers, the mass-media, the liberal left, and offshoots like Hollywood, and the so-called intelligentsia, all have the same agenda born in the heart of Satan. It is to prepare the way to hell.
Politics can be a prison of pride and lies. Most politicians promise a paradise but deliver nothing but enslavement to more of the same. And the people buy it all because it is their god. Politics is the world’s way to management of itself. Today it is mostly spiritually bankrupt.
I’m not suggesting a theocracy here this side of heaven, but with God and His word on the outside – you are in a prison of your own making, with some pretty nasty comrades in sin inside with you.
You can’t destroy God and His word. You can try all you like, but like everyone from Lucifer, to Adam, to the antichrist and all in between, you will only destroy yourself. Not very clever!
As the doom of the devil approached his efforts to destroy and silence God are in high gear. We need to be aware of his evil devices and stand against them as prayer warriors.
A shocking new law from the US Democratic Party:
National religious freedom includes the right to worship freely, but also to express that worship in its manifesting fruits. We are now seeing what the Bible calls sin, enshrined in law in many nations. But like the smoke of the genie it is spreading further.
Acts 5:28-29 “Did we not strictly command you not to teach in this name? Look you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and you intend to bring this Man’s blood upon us. Then Peter and the other apostles said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.”
A new bill drawn up by the US Democratic Party been passed in the Democratic led House of Representatives called the HR5 Equality Bill. It still awaits confirmation by the Republican controlled Senate, where it is likely to fail.
►The bill normalises and legalises LBGT behaviour in private homes and businesses of all people, making them fully equal in all respects. But that is not the problem. The bill essentially criminalises opposition to it wherever it is expressed. That violates the believer’s conscience. That criminalises holiness!
Another problem with this evil bill is that if it is fully adopted by all, and becomes law, it will knock on to other nations, becoming the new norm of a nation / world under Satan.
Why is biblical holiness so hated? It is because, as a fruit of the new-birth, it is a ticket and key to God’s glorious eternal, exclusive, rewards and exaltation by Him. Holiness is also hated because the fruits of the world can never compare or produce even one of them.
Holiness is also hated because it is the way to pure peace of mind, which the world can’t achieve.
Russia: A new anti-terrorism law signed by Putin sounds good at face value. But there is something else smelly, smeared in this face! ●The law prevents foreign guests from speaking in Russian churches unless they have a work permit. ●Sharing your faith with non-believers will be punishable. ●Religious activity is no longer permitted in homes. ●Every citizen is obliged to report those who break these new laws. ●You may not pray or study the Bible in the presence of a non-believer. ●Church alter calls are no longer permitted. – And more.
7000 Russian evangelical churches and pastors have come together to pray and fast against these new laws. (Charisma News)
There is a new bill in the works in South Africa to regulate religion. It will have the same effects as some of these points above. (South African Christians did successfully pray into nullification, another similar bill a while ago.)
►At the end of the day, Christians around the world need to mobilise in prayer against all these similar laws coming about worldwide right now.
Remember my verse for year and just how appropriate it has been to multitudes of situations: “If you forsake the ways of God you will praise the wicked.” Proverbs 28:4
The veracity of Bible prophecy:
Satan removes God from society just when He is needed most. The reason is to blind the masses to his work of producing control, and also most importantly, to blind the people to the veracity of Bible prophecy, which is the ultimate proof of the truth.
If Bible prophecy is true, you are going to hell, if not born again! That is just as prophetic as other, regular prophesies. Likewise, if Bible prophecy is true, you are destined for unimaginable, eternal glory if you are saved.
Politicians are prophets in a sense (fallen ones). They promise what prophecy does. They say that if you vote for them, you will be “saved” from this or that and have a real good life, and if you’re not a supporter then you will suffer. They are all pitiful liars!
To get anywhere, the politician must be bound by the fear and approval of man and not necessarily God. They are spiritually destitute and have no prophetic insight. (With a few exceptions)
As peoples lives progressively fall apart we are presented with great evangelistic opportunities. “Where sin abounds, grace does much more abound!”
Powers that be:
We must see into the spirit realm that there is a giant spiritual conflict on the go. It is a conflict of powers. The Bible is full of these meanings.
To offer some insight, here are some of the original words and applications for “power.” There are many more right through the Bible:
Strong’s H 3581 “Koach” Meanings: Power of God, of angels, great strength,
Strong’s H3027 “Yad” Meanings: Power of man, fractional part of power.
Strong’s H6184 “Ariyts” Meanings: Political, violent oppressor, terror-striking.
Strong’s H2428 “Chayil” Meanings: Military power, force, valour, mighty strength.
Strong’s G1325 “Didomi” Meanings: Power to deliver one. To give over.
Strong’s G2904 “Kratos” Meanings: Dominion, strength, force.
Strong’s G1849 “Exousia” Meanings: Executive jurisdiction, authority. (Satan’s power)
Strong’s G1411: “Dynamis.” Meanings: Moral, miracle, explosive as in dynamite.
Here are a few applications: Proverbs 18:21 (H3027) 2 Timothy 3:5 G1411) Philippians 3:10 (G1411)
●All the power of politics can’t get rid of sin. ●The power found in science and technology can’t get rid of sin. ●Medicine can’t get rid of sin. ●Psychology and its words can’t get rid of sin. ●Strong, powerful emotions, can’t get rid of sin. ●Socio-political laws, actions and philosophies can’t get rid of sin. ●Ethnic culture can’t get rid of sin. ●Religion, keeping laws and doing works can’t get rid of sin.
So, you are doomed – or are you?
Yes you are doomed outside of the cross of Calvary. It is the only thing that gets rid of sin. But it is drastic! It kills you the sinner, dead! Then it raises you up to sin-free newness of life, in your spirit, with an internal power to work it all from the inside to the outside.
The greatest demonstration of supernatural power evervwill be at the rapture.
There is another eternal power still to be fully manifest. It is far superior and far above all we can imagine!
Hebrews 6:5 “...The powers of the age to come...”
There is power in light. But beware; there is an illegitimate power in darkness too:
Colossians 1:13 “He has delivered us from the power of darkness and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of His love.”
After the rapture, the Jews will be the “light of the world” and the “light to the Gentiles.” (Isaiah 49:6 42:6, 60:3) Satan wants these lights put out fast.
Israel will become holy in a flash. She will become the “light of the world” as quickly as it takes to hit the switch!
Deuteronomy 28:9-10 “The Lord will establish you (Israel) as a holy people to Himself...Then all the peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by My name, and they shall be afraid of you.”
Ezekiel 36:25-27 “Then I shall sprinkle clean water on you and you shall be clean...I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you...I will put My Spirit in you...”
Isaiah 4:3 “It shall come to pass that he who is left in Zion and he who remains in Jerusalem, will be called holy...”
Fulfilled Bible prophecy is one of the most powerful verifications of the veracity of God’s word. It has never failed. Logic dictates that it never will.
Have you ever sat down and thought about who controls your mind? Very few have.
Our Lord will be your Lord of glory forever, or your supreme, terrifying Judge!
Do you think our Lord will congratulate you the unbeliever, for all your excellent, good, loving, caring, compassionate, successful work you did in your life, as you are sent to hell for not having your name in the Lamb’s Book of Life?
The world calls itself a “brave new world.” Let me tell you- they are right! You need to be extremely brave to launch yourself on a one way journey to hell!
The problem with politics and the very core of democracy is that it has become the machinery of the god of this world and people treat it like a god. It has become the delivery vehicle of many cursed beliefs and practises.
The thinking is that if a majority agrees on any issue it is right. How wrong that is!
Many people think God is democratic and then equate democracy with God making the two one!
In these end-days, politics, like the media and entertainment world, is all a lot more evil, aggressive, confrontational and forceful than before. It is spiritually charged.
Democracy only works in a nation under God, because that is the constitutional, superior standard and backstop, albeit in the background.
The crowning glory of Satan’s seven-year triumph – the tribulation period, will be the destruction of free-will politics, democracy and the rise of the tyranny of one-worldism, all to be destroyed by the wrath of God.
Be sure of this one thing: The mass media will mutate and transform themselves into Satan’s promoters, advocates, ambassadors and publicist all the way to their fiery end.
Jeremiah 17:5-7 “Cursed is the man who trust in man and makes flesh his strength ...He shall be like a shrub in the desert and not see good when it comes. Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is in the Lord.”
Psalm 1:1-3, Psalm 92:12, Proverbs 3:33, Ezekiel 47:12
I took these two pictures in the beautiful Namib Desert.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 469: May 14th 2019
Israel – The Sign:
These are words of life!
Next in the great drama: The rapture of the church, the Lion of Judah is recognised by the Jews, as the seven-year tribulation period begins with wars and great turmoil.
The great shock will be when the Jews see that their Messiah is not a Catholic, but a Jew! I think the Catholic church will get as great a shock when they finally see that their Christmas Jesus is the antichrist and the real Messiah is a Jew!
The tribulation period is about to begin!
Jeremiah 30:3-7 “I will bring back from captivity My people Israel and Judah, says the Lord, and I will cause them to dwell in their land...Alas for that day is great, so none is like it; and it shall be the time of Jacob’s trouble. (Tribulation period)
Note in the verse above the link between the return of the Jews to their land and the tribulation period. We could accurately call the present return to the Promised Land, the spiritual awakening or return as well, which, in fact is just beginning now.
You have to correctly identify the major types and shadows of the Bible. If you don’t, you will miss-apply many scripture and in many cases land in error.
End-time Babylon can only be the world-system as a whole. That would include the political, commercial, military and religious elements. A clear reading of all the verses in the Bible relating to end-time Babylon absolutely proves this.
There are a few die-hards out there who continue to identify end-time Babylon as literal rebuilt Babylon in Iraq. Nothing could further from the truth. Don’t just take what others say.
The Bible also speaks of Jerusalem, in type as being “Babylon, Egypt and Sodom”.
Revelation 11:8 “Their dead bodies (2 witnesses) will lie in the street of the great city which is spiritually called, Sodom and Egypt where also our Lord was crucified.”
Egypt (with Babylon) is another clear type of the world system. Israel had become paganised with all sorts of worldly influences. Sodom is a clear reference to the sin of homosexuality for which Israel, particularly Tel Aviv, is renowned today.
The verse above refers in type to the work of the cross covering the sin of the world, and that Israel has become worldly, although her physical return to the land is still on the go.
Before we continue, please understand that the number seventy is the number of judgement. It is also connected with Jerusalem.
The number seventy one in Hebrew means: “Fullness, Holy Spirit, Dove!”
The declaration and the decree:
●Israel declared independence as a state on May 14th 1948. The declaration was confirmed by the UN (League of Nations back then). The very next day, six Arab armies attacked Israel, in what became known as the War of Independence. But it was only on January 25th 1949 that Israel became an official state with David Ben-Gurion being elected Prime Minister.
Yes, independence took place in May 1948, seventy one years ago, but the workings of it only came about in 1949, seventy years ago. So, is it seventy or seventy one years? I think it doesn’t really make that much difference, since both are significant.
Does this mean that the full seventy years are not quite up yet? My point is that in God’s scheme of things everything will work out perfectly. Our Lord always does things decently and in order and sometimes we only see this after the fact. (1 Corinthians 14:40)
Anyway, Israel has been a nation of the world for seventy years give or take an inch.
Here now is an item of great interest: Israel went into Babylonian captivity for seventy years due to her rebellion and sin. Babylon is always a type of the world.
So, we can accurately say that Israel has been in modern day captivity to the world and its ways for seventy years, hence the comparison.
●The decree of Cyrus: (Ezra 1:1-11, 5:17, 2 Chronicles 36:23 Isaiah 44:28, 45:1)
The Babylonian captivity ended with the decree of Cyrus. He ordered that the temple be rebuilt in Jerusalem on the Temple Mount and that the children of Israel return to their Promised Land.
The purpose of ending the captivity was related to the rebuilt temple. In other words, it was so that Israel could return to holiness. Don’t miss that point! At the same time, the walls of Jerusalem were ordered to be rebuilt.
During the exile many Jews had fallen into pagan worship. The return to the land with a new temple ended this.
We see the same principle in the great Exodus from Egypt: Exodus 7:16 “And you (Moses) shall say to him (Pharaoh) Let My people go, so that they may serve Me in the wilderness...”
So, now as we look at these powerful types and shadows, do you see what I see?
Immediately after the captivity the command to rebuild the temple comes along, for the reason of Israel’s return to holiness, just like the Exodus.
Now, with that in mind, have a look at this verse below and note the time frame.
Jeremiah 29:10 “Thus says the Lord: ‘After seventy years are completed at Babylon, I will visit you and perform My good word toward you, and cause you to return to this place.”
At the same time and perhaps part of the modern “decree of Cyrus” will come the fateful peace covenant with the antichrist, kicking off the seven year tribulation period as the restrainer – the true church, is removed from the earth, before the tribulation.
But something will cause Israel to immediately become jealous and angry (Romans 10:19). That can only be the rapture, with them being left behind. Whatever this great sign is it will also cause Israel to immediately repent and become holy.
Isaiah 66:19 “I will set a sign among them (Jews)...they shall declare My glory among the Gentiles.”
The word “sign” above, (Strong’s H226) means a supernatural, miraculous sign, event or warning. It is the same word used in the verse below:
Isaiah 7:14 “The Lord Himself will give you (O house of David) a sign: Behold the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son and shall call His name Immanuel.”
This is a parallel to the sign of Revelation 12:1-5 which is Israel giving birth to the Jewish Messiah (not the church.) A further great parallel is found in Isaiah 66:8 speaking of a nation (Zion) being born in a day. Again this is NOT the church as taught by the deceived. Verses 10, and 13 confirm this identifying the subject as Jerusalem, Israel and the not the church.
We don’t know exactly what this future sign will be that God will place in Israel, but we do know it has to be of supernatural origin.
I believe this sign to the Jews, will be the rapture of the church, and then sudden insight of who their Messiah is. The veil of spiritual blindness on the Jews is a supernatural mystery. (Romans 11:25) It will be removed suddenly.
At this time, the dreadful Revelation riders of the storm will ride into a dark, dark world. “Hello darkness my old friend,” will be the unsaid chant of the tribulation masses.
“I can see clearly now the veil is gone,” will be the song of the Jews! What incredible joy this time will be, (as well as suffering)! Tribulation arises and long awaited repentance falls on Israel – glory!
The sign is the rapture, but the more detailed sign is the Jews seeing a virgin-born Jewish Messiah, whom they “pierced.” (Zechariah 12:10) They will suddenly understand what that means. If there is no virgin birth, there is no Messiah and no salvation. They cannot look upon their Messiah and not see the virgin-born, sinless, crucified, risen and coming again Yeshua Ha Mashiach !
By the way, if you are born-again you are virgin-born, with no sin in your spirit. – Think about it!
The main point here is that if the Babylonian captivity is represented in Israel’s 70 years as a nation, we are right at the very end, and in fact on borrowed time. If this analogy is true, it also suggests that the time will end with a fresh “decree of Cyrus” to build the temple. It suggests that we are right on the very verge.
Add to this all the other requirements of prophecy like the war in Syria reaching its dramatic climax, the war of Gog and Magog (Russia, Iran and others) the war of Psalm 83 and much more.
The doom of the nations:
Be absolutely sure of one thing: God will deal severely in judgement with all the nations that have negatively influenced and affected Israel. Nations that have led them deeper into sin, will pay the price. Churches that have done the same, are in the same boat!
I strongly suggest that you read well and study out the following portions of scripture. They have a powerful prophetic message for today. You can’t join all the Spirit-less idiots of the world and say – you didn’t know about these things.
Isaiah 49:22-26 “Behold, I will lift My hand in an oath to the nations and set up My standard (Lit=banner /sign) for the peoples; they shall bring your sons (Israel) in their arms and your daughters shall be carried on their shoulders...they (the nations) shall bow down to you (Israel), with their faces to the earth, and lick up the dust of your feet. Then you will know that I am the Lord...I will contend with him who contends with you. I will feed those who oppress you with their own flesh...All flesh shall know that I the Lord am your Saviour, and your mighty Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob (Israel)
Jeremiah 30:11 “For I am with you (Israel) to save you; though I make a full end of the nations where I scattered you, yet I will not make a complete end of you.”
Jeremiah 30:14-17 “All your lovers have forgotten you...your sins have increased and your sorrow is incurable...Therefore all those devour you shall be devoured and all your adversaries, every one shall go into captivity...because they called you an outcast, saying: ‘This is Zion, no one seeks her.’”
Jeremiah 31:31-33 “Behold the days are coming says the Lord, when I make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah...I will put My law in their minds and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God and they shall be My people.”
A lot of people say (rightly) that the coming tribulation judgements are because of the sin of the world and that God’s grace has run out, but there is another overlooked, very important reason: It is because of the sin of the world against Israel, and the influence of the world’s sin on her!
Revelation 18:21-24 “A mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence the great city Babylon, shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore...For by your sorcery all the nations were deceived, and in her was found the blood of prophets and saints, and of all who were slain on the earth.”
By the way, if you are one of those who believe that end-time Babylon is literal Babylon in Iraq, please explain to me the above verse!!
The tribulation period sees a number of churches on earth serving Satan during this time. They are primarily the Catholic church and other orthodox churches as well as any and all that do not preach and teach salvation exclusively through the cross, which is the death, burial and resurrection.
The Feast of Trumpets:
The Feast of Trumpets is the next of the seven feasts to find its prophetic fulfilment.
Personally, I love classical trumpet music. I love the sound of the shofar properly blown. They are all spine tingling. No wonder the Bible is full of trumpets and shofars, they are sensational, producing sounds of warning, calling, and of freedom, liberty and glory!
We see what can only be a description of the rapture occurring with a trumpet blast in Revelation 4:1-2, 1Corinthians 15:52, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17.
There is so much of such value wrapped up in the Feast of Trumpets, but I will share some more as we get closer to the coming, last one. (September 29th) Yes I did say “last one.” That’s just to spark some debate and cause some arguments out there.
As we see this Feast approaching, we will know much more. It is of major importance.
There is a sign coming that will cause the metamorphosis of the Jews into children of God.
Ezekiel 37:25-28 “Then they shall dwell in the land that I have give to Jacob My servant...I will make a covenant of peace with them...My tabernacle (temple) also shall be with them. Indeed, I shall be their God and they shall be My people. The nations shall know that I the Lord sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forever more.”
The rapture of the true church, and Israel being saved is the milestone, the banner to the nations and the great sign.
False doctrines with dangerous tentacles:
Very often false doctrine becomes worse due to the knock on effects to other doctrines and verses, and tentacles of error that cause problems. Sometimes these knock effects are only seen further down the line when they actually knock on and appear.
Sometimes they are taught inadvertently. But almost always they are as a response to a spirit of error, in the teacher.
Some errors are just personal differences and no big deal. Others are curse producing, and others will land you in hell.
In these days, because we are in a highly spiritually charged environment, where Satan knows his days are numbered, (Revelation 12:12) we must be more vigilant.
Perhaps the biggest and worst false doctrine is replacement theology. It is highly toxic.
Replacement theology teaches that the church has replaced Israel. But, know this: This doctrine is not static. It is about to go through a revolutionary metamorphose into a far worse and deadly beast. It will swallow all of its present adherents and end up taking more than half the world to hell. I will soon share more on this terrible soon-coming deadly transformation.
If you, Mr. Wolf in the pulpit, preach and teach replacement theology in its current form, I have one very simple question for you:
Israel will soon repent and be saved. If the church is Israel, that then should mean that the church has to repent and be saved? How can the church, which has already been saved on repentance, be saved on repentance?
Know this and know it very well. Replacement theology is an evil spirit. It is a high ranking evil spirit with hordes of demons under its control.
Be warned again of the coming mutation of replacement theology, Satan’s spearhead.
Satan and his world will do all they can to get rid of Israel. He knows the plan of God to bring them to salvation and use them as His agents in the tribulation period. If Satan can neutralise the Jews, make Israel part of a normal godless world he will. He will use the compromised, spineless, weak church as one of his arsenal of weapons.
The pagan, Babylonian, Baal worship doctrines of Easter and Christmas are not only false doctrines and pure heresy but are deeply offensive to Jews. They are barriers, obstacles and stumbling blocks to the Jews and pollute their view of Messiah.
Be discerning! Do not touch the teachings of those who have been in great error and not repented and broken free.
Alternatively, deep repentance is a wonderful cleanser. Truth is the only solid foundation. All error is like quicksand! You need the fullness of the Spirit to lead you and guide you. (John 16:13) Don’t be afraid of those who have gone off the rails a little and repented, made right and come back. Many times they have a whole lot more to offer than before.
We could call the seventy years of Israel’s independence, their modern captivity to the world’s ways. But more than that it is their time of pregnancy and hibernation! It is their time of incubation.
Israel is on the verge of repentance. Repentance is a powerful regenerative force. It lifts you up and renews you and cleans you up. It makes you right now even when you were wrong. It is empowering. Above all, repentance produces acceptance and deep rest.
The entire world will soon see the results of large scale national repentance and renewal in Israel.
Even nature itself is anticipating and awaiting these things. It is groaning under the sin of man as it waits.
The beautiful, peaceful calls of the birds and insects and things natural are presently being subdued by the shattering piercing, howling sirens of sin. Soon – great peace!
The question is: Are you ready? If not why, and what are you going to do about it?
It’s a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God!
The trunk of the elephant and the baobab tree are similar. They are both beautiful giants of the African landscape and amongst my favourites! I took these two pictures in Botswana and the Limpopo region, respectively and blended them together.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 468: May 7th 2019
Israel under the bus:
These are words of life!
“Israel being thrown under the bus,” is a recent term, but the overall reality of it began when Pa fell off the bus, many ages ago!
The modern-day Goliath is in fact, Esau, with an ancient hatred, still trying to negate and reverse the sale of his birthright to Jacob / Israel, signed in porridge! Today, fiery rockets are his signature - the kiss of death to his brother.
Strangely, these fiery rockets are finding support for the Palestinian cause, making Israel the aggressor. That’s like Islam’s justification of rape in the name of expanding Islam. Those that obstruct the rape are the aggressors!
But as with Goliath, Israel’s missile defence system called “David’s Slingshot” combined with their smart “Iron Dome Defence System,” produces the protection against the terror.
Israel today is feeling extremely vulnerable! Here it is succinctly described thousands of years ago:
Psalm 57:4 “My soul is among lions; I lie among the sons of men who are set on fire, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.”
Psalm 64:5-7 “They (Israel’s enemies) encourage themselves in an evil matter, they talk of laying snares secretly; they say, who will see them? They devise iniquities; ‘We have perfected a shrewd scheme. The inward thought and heart of man are deep. But God will shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly, they shall be wounded. They will be made to stumble over their own tongue and all who see them shall flee away.”
By the way, it is the UN and EU nations specifically, have been, and are funding the Palestinians, while the US has killed its monetary aid to them, which of course lands up as rockets and bombs.
In this edition I will address the issues of throwing Israel under the bus.
I will also look at the terrible rise in Christian martyrdom, and the unifying force behind persecution.
What is the “bus?”
The bus is the vehicle going down the highway to hell! It is the collective ways of the world-system. It is the opinions of the world, especially related to Israel. Satan is the bus driver. He wants all nations on board, including Israel.
The bus is world domination and control under a new world political, religious and economic order, led by God’s arch-enemy – Satan.
Islam is already seated comfortably on the bus next to multitudes of religions including apostate churches. Churches of replacement theology are already on the bus, and the interfaith movement are in their seats. The Catholics the Anglicans and numerous Spirit-less churches are right up front next to the driver.
Satan uses his own tools, the media, the masses and the compromised cross-less church. The media’s message is the sacrosanct, consistent message – Do it my way!
Are all aboard and ready to roll? Yes they are, except Israel and the true church!
“The wheels of the bus go round and round, round and round. The wheels of the bus go round and round...and run you over flat, if you’re not on the bus!
Israel won’t get on the world’s bus, because she is already on another bus, driven by the King Lion.
Satan and his bloated busload of buffoons don’t like the fact that Israel won’t get on their bus, so they throw a fiery tantrum of rockets, and try to throw Israel under their bus.
In reality, you can’t throw Israel under the bus. You may be able to do so, when they, in their blindness tear up God’s bus ticket, given to them – His covenant promises, and replace it with Satan’s lying peace covenant. But that will only have limited, very short-term success.
The wheels of the bus go round and round, but remember - what goes around comes around! Those who try to throw Israel under the bus will soon find themselves under the bus. In the tribulation period, God will cast Satan’s entire bus into a flaming fire of His making!
If you try to throw Israel under the bus, you had better like the view from under the bus, because that is where you will land up, before being put on the train to tribulation.
What does it mean to throw Israel under the bus?
Throwing Israel under the bus includes all attacks against her that cause her harm. That would include verbal, political views, and church views of replacement theology in particular. It would include all military action, anti-Semitism and terrorism against Israel and the Jews.
Throwing Israel under the bus, includes throwing stumbling blocks in front of her.
Isaiah 57:14 “...Prepare the way, take the stumbling block out of the way of My people.”
This verse relates to the time period of Israel’s repentance and return to the Lord. Like any birth, this is a critical time. It speaks to the church and her influence on Israel now.
The church is commissioned to “Comfort My people” in these times. It is commissioned to make the “Jew jealous” and take the true clean, pagan-less gospel to the “Jew first!” (Isaiah 40:1, Romans 1:16, 10:19, 11:14)
Throwing Israel under the bus has been a favourite pastime of many churches, particularly those who are enslaved and dedicated to the evil pagan practises of Babylon and Baal worship. This includes the customs of Easter, Christmas and the like.
Don’t think that those convocations don’t identify you, especially amongst the Jews. Throwing Israel under the bus includes trying to poison them with paganism.
The blind church says: “Give the Jews an Easter egg, a hot cross bun and a ham sandwich. And present the children to ‘ho,ho, ho’, the satanic slob Saint Nick”!
●Hosea 2:17 “I will take from her (Israel) mouth the names of the Baals (Easter etc) and they shall be remembered by their names no more.”
Islam is a champion at throwing Israel under the bus. They believe in world domination. The surprise is that world domination will occur in the Millennium led by the Jews.
Who are you throwing under the bus?
Israel is God’s ●Child, ●Son, ●Wife, ●Bride, ●Husband, ●Divorced partner being reunited. ●Chosen people, ●God’s name is on them. ●Israel is God’s ●Servant, ●Army, ●Witness.
Israel is: ●Elected ●Rebelled ●Rejected ●Regathered ●Repented ●Accepted.
The above are found in the following verses (and others):
(Hosea 11:1, Exodus 4:22, Jeremiah 3:8-22, Hosea 2:19, Numbers 6:27, Isaiah 54:5-6, Isaiah 40:1, Jeremiah 31:4. Deuteronomy 7:6)
Israel is the “apple of God’s eye.” Zechariah 2:8)
Israel’s name is written indelibly on the palms of Messiah’s hands. (Isaiah 49:16)
Numbers 6:27 “So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.”
Throwing Israel under the bus makes you a champion of ignorance, or arrogant audacity!
Israel’s coming holiness:
One thing the world (and most of the church) can’t see or understand is that as the veil of blindness lifts from Israel, and they recognise their Messiah, they will be shattered right into a powerful holiness producing repentance.
Zephaniah 3:13 “The remnant of Israel shall do no unrighteousness and speak no lies, nor shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth...”
Deuteronomy 14:2 “For you are a holy people to the Lord your God, and the Lord has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth.”
Joshua 7:13 “...Thus says the Lord God of Israel: There is an accursed thing in your midst O Israel; you cannot stand before your enemies until you take away the accursed thing from among you.”
Isaiah 43:12 “I have declared and saved, I have proclaimed, and there was no foreign god among you; therefore you are My witnesses, says the Lord.”
Beloved brethren, it is part of your called duty to stand with Israel, to pray for them and to pray for their city. It your duty to stand before them pure and holy!
Church, you can repent for your brethren to be. Stand in the gap for them! Identify yourself with them now.
Job 22:30 “He will even deliver one who is not innocent; yes he will be delivered by the purity of your hands.”
The great bus crash.
As the world’s bus gets to the tribulation period it will crash. Untold millions of passengers will repent and come to the Lord in that time, betraying the bus driver – Satan.
Many will be killed in that great crash and end in an eternal prison, and many will rebel against God.
Isaiah 54:15-17 “Indeed they shall surely assemble, but not because of Me, whoever assembles (UN) against you (Israel) shall fall for your sake...No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgement, you shall condemn.”
Deuteronomy 30:7 “The Lord God will put all these curses on your enemies and all those that hate you and persecute you. And you (Israel) will again obey the voice of the Lord...”
Psalm 68:1 “Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: Let them that hate Him flee before Him.”
Isaiah 66:14-16 “The hand of the Lord shall be known to His servants and His indignation to His enemies. For behold the Lord will come with fire and with His chariots like a whirlwind, to render His anger with fury and His rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire and by His sword the Lord will judge all flesh; and the slain of the Lord will be many”
After the great bus crash:
“Father forgive them for they don’t know what they do.” “It is finished.” These were the words of the Lord from the cross to His own people. It still stands today! After the great world bus crash, the Jews will suddenly “Know what they have done!”
“They will look upon the One whom they have pierced and mourn for Him.” (Zechariah 12:10)
Exodus 6:6-7 “I will bring you (Israel) out from under the burdens (bus) of the Egyptians (type of the world), I will rescue you from their bondage and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm, and with great judgements. I will take you as My people, and I will be your God, then you shall know that I am the Lord...”
Daniel 12:7 “...It shall be for a time, times and half a time (3 ½ years) and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished.”
Isaiah 56:5 “...I will give them (Israel) an everlasting name that they should not be cut off.”
How stupid can you be to try and throw Israel under the bus when she is God’s agent of salvation in the tribulation? People need evangelists to show you how to be saved.
You can’t save yourself. All your good works mixed together can’t save you.
Human rights can do what it likes, but it can’t get God to save you. No human has any democratic human right to be saved.
Democracy, do you really think you will be able to vote on your eternal destiny? Do you think you will be able to vote yourself out of hell? You absolute fool!
It’s wise to choose the winning side! Our side may appear small and persecuted now, but it’s not going to stay that way forever!
God’s bus ride to glory:
God’s will, ways and word are the supreme eternal victor. All of man’s self-exalting ways, philosophies, and beliefs amount to a big zero in the face of the living God of all glory!
God’s glory will expand through the universe. True believers have the incredible privilege of working on our upcoming glory right now. You can make it grow and expand, and it will endure forever.
Isaiah 9:6-7 “Unto us a Child is born and Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder, and His name will be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father Prince of Peace. Of the increase (Lit=increasing greatness) of His government and peace there will be no end...”
Proverbs 4:18 “The path of the just (righteous) is like the shining sun that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day...”
Job 17:9 “The righteous will hold to his way, and he who has clean hands will be stronger and stronger.”
Daniel 9:24 (To be brought in): “An end of sin and everlasting righteousness...”
Daniel 12:3 “Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever.”
1 Corinthians 15:41-42 “There is one glory of the sun, another glory of the moon and another glory of the stars; for one star differs from another in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead.”
This group of verses above are so very deeply satisfying and stabilising in this forever deteriorating, devolving and forever dimming world.
The family of God are attacked when there is no longer restraint in the land. (Hosea 4:1-2) The reason is because God and His word are the authority of the universe and it is this restraining authority that is always attacked. When authority in the land breaks down, anything goes.
When people can’t turn on, and attack God because they can’t reach Him, they turn on His people and His word.
You cannot serve God and come against the Jews. You are serving a different foreign god headquartered in the offices of CNN.
Satan must remove all obstacles to him taking control of the world. Christianity is not an obstacle to Satan, It is the Spirit-filled, empowered, holy, separated Christian that is. Just as the Jews will be!
The true, born-again Christian is separated from the world by birth. He is holy by birth. The umbilical cord to the world has been cut!
Christians damage the world by getting people saved out of it. It will be the same for the Jews, who will be God’s evangelists in the tribulation.
One of the big reasons for the hatred of God and His people is that they are saved out of the world. Yes we are in it, but not of it. Satan wants us in his world and of it.
One of the unwritten, unseen reasons for persecution of Jews and Christians is the fact that God is a Jew! Many people can’t get their heads around that because their heads are in the sand with Satan!
One big reason the world hates Christians is because they have perfection in their hearts, while the world has a heart filled with sin, evil and wickedness, which they are married to and can’t get rid of.
Persecution of Christians worldwide, but particularly in the Middle East and Eastern nations has reached “genocide” proportions according to a number of reports from agencies independent of each other. The word’s media is silent, but not God’s media – the Bible!
●The Bible speaks of a church group “drunk on the blood of the martyrs.” (Revelation 17:6) Most analysts, me included, believe this speaks of the Catholic church in the tribulation period, killing the tribulation saint, who are Jews and Gentiles saved at that time.
Many times it is Catholics who are martyred. Those doing the killing don’t distinguish. They think they are killing ordinary Christians. Actually, we should stand in sympathy with Catholics who are martyred, because they are not being killed for being Catholics, but Christians. So that does put a different spin on it.
Persecution is a unifying force. The family of God will be increasingly united as persecution intensifies. Christians as the family of God will be increasingly united with Jews – the coming family of God!
One of the insane reasons the Catholic church keeps using for the hatred of the Jews, is that according to them, the Jews killed Jesus! Our Lord was no martyr. His death, burial, resurrection and ascension were the very reason He came, and the essence of salvation.
Today, we are seeing the spirit of martyrdom arising like never before. The world can’t get rid of God, but they can “martyr” the word of God and attack His people.
Genesis 22:18 “In you (Israel) all the nations shall be blessed.”
A prophetic word of warning:
Part of the new world that much of the church has become champion of, is a world of ever increasing sin and evil, justified, and sanctified by the sick, spineless, Spirit-less church.
- A prophetic word of warning to those in and under the spirit of replacement theology: Get out now! It is about to mutate into a more deadly, evil spirit. You will soon be trapped. The spearhead of anti-Semitism is replacement theology in the church. It always has been. The principle is: “As goes the spiritual, so goes the natural.”
- To those under the power of Babylonian customs and Baals: You will begin to weaken now.
- An appeal to teachers and preachers of the truth: Get you prayer warriors and teams to support, protect and strengthen you, to fortify and keep you in all truth. You are the foundation, custodian and pillar of truth in these dangerous days. (1 Timothy 3:15)
The world’s greatest, act of forgiveness is about to be seen. This will be the greatest act of triumph, mercy, grace and drama ever seen. Our Lord will pour out His forgiveness on Israel and open their blind eyes. They will dance in the streets as wildly as David did as they see their Messiah with arms outstretched.
The dance of delight:
Dance with Me Israel, O My lover, to the song of all songs, romance Me, lover of My soul to the song of all songs. To Me you have run, My beloved, you’ve captured My heart, with you I will go...dance with Me!
I took the background picture in the Drakensberg Mountains and the dead tree in the Namib Desert.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 467: April 30th 2019
Truth and Error today:
These are words of life!
The world is on a slippery slope. Truth and error are on a big collision course. The line of demarcation is being blurred. It is high time to know where you stand and where your enemy stands.
If you do not know what is going on now spiritually, and in the socio-political world, you are in much greater danger than you can imagine. Forces much greater then you are at work, which are already swallowing up untold millions in their ignorance.
This edition is about a few really big-ticket items that have the potential to destroy you spiritually, in these days, or to set you on fire with a new zeal, passion and holiness, after our Lord and His word.
We are in the season of our Lord’s coming. This is the season of intensifying great shaking, and of great stability for those who know their God! Pick your choice!
Major curses and blessings:
Much of the church today is fast becoming a great enemy of the truth of God’s word, and a friend and promoter of the world and its sin.
When people don’t see or understand the blessing of God before them, primarily in God’s word, a spiritual force causes them to turn against the blessing and curse it, thereby receiving the curse! This principle works with individuals and entire nations. Have a look at this extremely powerful verse:
Jeremiah 17:5-8 “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart departs from the Lord, for he shall be like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see when good comes...Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, for he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spread out its roots by the river, and will not fear when heat comes...It will not cease from yielding fruit.”
The sin of trusting in man, the media, your culture, and the like, is the qualification for you to walk, cursed into greater curses and not even see where you are going!
God’s word and work is blessed. It always has been. How wise it is to find it and align with it. The world will automatically find what is cursed and align with it. You must know the difference. It is being manifest today in very many areas of major importance.
God’s amazing family:
The entire Israeli / Palestinian issue is going to rock the world in world war, and great conflicts very soon, and into the tribulation period. It will all be the centre of world affairs and everyone will have an opinion. Most will side with the devil’s opinion.
The world today, including the churches of replacement theology, are all united in siding with the Palestinian cause because of what happened in 1948, 1967 and all the following pro-Palestinian choices of the UN, EU and others since then.
But, you really have to be a special sort of stupid to ignore previous history and truth, especially when it negates and cancels out all these modern solutions.
With this in mind, I will now wipe the floor with the stupid leaders of the world.
God has a great family!
All true born-again believers are the family of God. This includes saved Jews and Gentiles. This family was chosen before the foundation of the world!
Ephesians 1:4 “He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love...”
But because of God’s distinct plan for Israel, His family extends to Israel, even those who are unsaved at this stage (due to be saved later.)
Now, have a look at the amazing descriptions of God, for His own family – Israel:
►Israel is God’s ●Child, ●Son, ●Wife, ●Bride, ●Virgin, ●Husband, ●My people, ●Prodigal returning, ●Divorced partner, being reunited.
I have compiled the above list from the following verses:
Hosea 11:1, Exodus 4:22, Jeremiah 3:8-22, Hosea 2:19, Isaiah 54:5-6, Isaiah 40:1, Jeremiah 31:4.
On top of this, we see in numerous scriptures that Israel is: ●Elected ●Rebelled ●Rejected ●Regathered ●Repented ●Accepted.
On top of this, we see that out of Abraham came Isaac, Jacob, Israel and the Jews. Also out of Abraham came Ishmael, Esau, the Arabs (including Palestinians) and out of them, the religion of Islam. The former was the accepted line of promise, and the latter was the line of the flesh, rejected by God for His purposes.
Out of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Israel, and the Jews came the Messiah, the cross of Calvary, the new-birth and all the glories to come.
●Note well that not one of the family names mentioned above is given to, or imputed to the Arab nations – the Abraham-Ishmael-Esau line!
God’s family also includes a land and a city in which He has put His name forever!
Now let’s draw the grand conclusion, and this is earth shattering in importance, especially for world leaders including church leaders!
Note all the family names that God calls His people! Note that these names are given to the Jews ahead of their soon-coming salvation! Note that it’s all for God’s purposes.
Do you really think God would call His people all these family names if He didn’t have a plan to use Israel, just like He said He would?
It’s a very stupid thing to stick your finger in God’s eye! (Zechariah 2:8) But what about sticking your finger in the eyes of His sons, bride, wife, husband, child, and people? What about sticking your finger in the eye of God’s army with battle-axe? (Jeremiah 51:20)That really makes you stupid fools!
Obviously, the wolves in the pulpits of replacement theology must get rid of these family names for the Jews, and give them all to the church. No wonder their churches are dead.
If you have not realised it yet, Rev Wolf, in your pretty frock, replacement theology ends in the acceptance of, and elevation of the antichrist. And you are leading your blind flock into the everlasting arms of eternal terror!
Many ministers today are cowards when it comes to the things of God, but leaders when it comes to the things of the devil, especially as promoted by the mass-media.
Israel will soon face a very real terror! She will look eye to eye into the heart of the living and roaring God of the universe, the Lion of the Jews!
But God will bring Israel through, not unscathed, but to glory and His ultimate purpose, as all His enemies are finally destroyed.
Isaiah 33:17-21 “Your eyes (Israel) will see the King in His beauty; they will see the land that is very far off. Your heart will meditate on terror. Now where is the scribe (media)? Where is he who weighs and counts the towers? You will not see a fierce people anymore...Look upon Zion, the city of our appointed feasts. Your eyes will see Jerusalem a quite habitation, a tabernacle that will not be taken down...There the majestic Lord will be for us...”
Isaiah 49:15 “Can a woman forget her child, and not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surley they may never forget, yet I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you (Israel) on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me.”
Destroying and annihilating replacement theology:
Replacement theology is simply the term for the replacement of the call and plan of God on the Jews, with the church. It includes Jerusalem and the land of Israel, all collectively as part of God’s grand plan for the close of the age.
But replacement theology has been evident in many forms since the birth of the Jewish people and God’s covenant promises to them, and the land. It is a form of anti-Semitism.
Replacement theology replaces Israel with the church. But it cannot replace Israel with the true, Spirit-filled, informed and wise church, because they know better. So, in effect it tries to replace Israel with the Spirit-less, dead, compromised, conformist, worldly, interfaith church, in cahoots with Islam.
As soon as Israel is out of the way (if it could be), Islam would storm in! (Ask Iran)
So, in effect, replacement theology is replacing Israel with a dead church and militant Islam!
Replacement theology replaces God’s plans with Satan’s, and replaces Messiah with the antichrist.
These things are about to become supernaturally charged with a powerful spirit of evil – the spirit of antichrist. You must know these things now ahead of time and steer clear and lead others to steer clear too.
But here is the big take away item: Since the birth of Israel, Satan has tried and failed to destroy this work of God. He has failed every single time without exception.
Replacement theology aligns you with Satan’s purposes in these things.
If you are in it - say hello to your annihilation! It is coming, ready or not!
Big, dangerous errors:
One of the great threats to the true, spirit-filled church in these days is the Jezebel spirit. In many ways it is also a replacement theology or action. It replaces God’s authority with another.
The Jezebel spirit works primarily through women in the church, but not exclusively. It is a satanic spirit designed to bring down God’s authority structures and kill the work of God. It is a usurping spirit of control.
►It is a spirit that always tries to intimidate, introducing a fear of itself, thus nullifying the fear of the Lord in God’s workers.
Like Jezebel of old, the spirit must be identified and dealt with radically. Don’t negotiate with this spirit. Kill it, and throw it out of the church. If not, it will come back to haunt you. Jezebel comes in many disguises, camouflaged as the one who knows best. She is filled with sin and all manner of evil.
In the last 40 years or so, I have witnessed the Jezebel spirit destroy churches, families and other institutions of godly authority.
Today, institutions where godly authority is evident are being attacked all around the world simultaneously. Let me give you a simple, surprising example:
There is a concrete dustbin, outside on the sidewalk near my home. The other day, I saw someone walk past it, and through their empty tin on the ground right next to it.
That was a disrespectful disregard for God’s authority, which is in the dustbin! (Romans 13:1) Extrapolate this into the world and we see an attack of God’s authority structures everywhere.
But the problem is far greater. It leads to a usurping and pushing back of God’s ways, and replacing it with an illegitimate authority, of the devil.
The power of spiritual ignorance:
Spiritual ignorance is the license the devil sees in someone, before opening the floodgates of false doctrine. Be very sure of this fact: People who are not passionate about truth are fully open to error.
There is a dangerous force and power to be aware of in these days. It is the force of ignorance. I’m not talking about people who are of a lower intellectual calibre. I’m talking about those under the power of spiritual blindness caused by the god of the world and the true God.
If you do not know it yet, Satan blinds people and so does God. (2 Corinthians 4:4, 2 Thessalonians 2:11, Romans 1:28) But, it is always the fault of the individual. He is to blame for his own sorry spiritual state. It is their pride that is the problem.
As the end-time scenario escalates, so this power of ignorance becomes a plague.
►Ephesians 4:17-18 Amp “...You should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles do, in the vanity and emptiness of their souls and the futility of their minds. Their moral understanding is darkened and their reasoning is clouded. They are alienated, self-banished from the life of God.”
►Job 18:5-7 “The light of the wicked indeed goes out, and the flame of his fire does not shine...The steps of his strength are shortened, and his own counsel casts him down.”
►Isaiah 44:20 “He feeds on ashes; his deceived heart has turned him away; and he cannot deliver his soul, nor can he say, ‘Is there not a lie in my right hand?’”
Please read these three verses above, over and over! They are of profound importance.
The verse below is also amazing! How relevant it is to the world? It relates to culture, custom, tradition, the opinions of man and all his ways today. Look at the meaning of “snare!”
Proverbs 29:25 “The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever puts his trust in the Lord shall be safe.”
Snare: Strong’s H 4170 – “Mowqesh.” Meanings: Curse, trap, nose ring, bait, lure.
Did you know that a great big bull, with much power is not going anywhere, when a rope is tied to the bull-ring in its nose? It is too sore to pull away, so the bull stays put, or just follows where it is being led.
That is the idea of the curse / snare brought by the fear of man, or those seeking the approval of man. They are trapped by the spirits of man and the world.
This is the way of the whole world.
Contrast all this with the numerous verses and examples of the blessing of the fear of the Lord!
Truth and error and your response:
Recently we have seen giant errors of interpretation and application. YouTube and others like it lend themselves to unobstructed error. There are a few good things on YouTube – not many!
Sometimes a minister of the gospel will say or teach something that you don’t agree with. And you have chapter and verse to prove him wrong.
In many cases – so what!
I recently heard a faith, health, prosperity preacher say something that surprised me. He said that many years ago, God called him to teach faith to the body of Messiah. He said, it was his calling. If that is so, I tell you something...He has fulfilled his calling very well!
He is not preaching a false doctrine. He is preaching truth. It may over-balanced for my liking, but – so what!
The big bottom line is this: Are you in your calling? If so – well and good; it will be blessed.
Many times a minister in error on something comes right a little further down the road. In many cases, God uses a man in certain areas and not others. That’s all His doing.
But there is a line to be drawn.
The Spirit of truth will always lead a person into more truth and correct the error as he goes. There will be identifiable results. There will be godly fruits and an inner witness.
But a person under the spirit of error generally goes deeper into error. It all gets worse, which is evident in the fruits. Pride is the terrible twin that walks with the spirit of error.
Be careful of any ministry based on legalism and exalted pride.
There are some bottom-line, major issues, which we should avoid at all costs. I believe very few ministers who are in, or get into replacement theology, or are silent on it, will come out of it. That spirit of error leads to the antichrist, with powerful unseen spirits at work in them.
Be careful of ministries who won’t touch eschatology. (End-times) They will have to replace it with a doctrine of no end-times, teaching that “everything will continue as it always has.” (2 Peter 3:4)
They will be ineffective in ministering holiness and radical change to you.
The end-time outpouring of the Spirit of God is the outpouring of the Spirit of truth. The end-time outpouring of the spirit of religion is the spirit of error.
Faith and grace is the way to sell your soul to the living God of truth. Law and works is the selling of your soul to religion and the demon gods of hell.
What a verse:
I really love the verse below! It’s almost like a slap in the face to the world.
Revelation 22:11 (End-time context) “He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.”
May I share with you a personal testimony and ask you to consider joining me in this endeavour?
Looking at the verse above, we see God saying – “okay world, do you worst!” But He is also saying, in the face of these end-times - “be more righteous and holy.”
For me, holiness has become a wonderful, driving force. It has given me glimpses of eternity – by faith. It’s almost like the world’s evil is a driving force for me to distance myself from it more and more and be more holy.
I’m not talking about legalism, but I am talking about making a conscious deliberate, wilful effort to be more holy, of course led by prayer and fasting.
I tell you, something, it is not difficult and it is so worth it. It actually becomes your new normal after a while. It is gloriously empowering.
How to do it: Repent of all known sin. Fix and change your thinking, change what your eyes see and ears hear and your actions will follow. (1 John 1:9, Proverbs 4:25, Proverbs 27:20, Job 31:1, 2 Corinthians 10:5, Philippians 4:8)
You can do it! You will not regret it – ever!
Exodus 4:12-16 “Now go (Moses) and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall say...So he shall be your spokesman to the people and you shall be to him as God...”
Don’t you love that? God tells Moses He will be with his mouth!
You can be God’s spokesman for your very own life and of course for others. Imagine having our Lord as your spokesman, speaking out of your mouth instead of the cursed media-mouth full of its garbage.
This is a composite of some of my art works of the past, mixed together.
Shalom and grow in Hvis Grace!
Edition 466: April 23rd 2019
Prophecy in the Feasts:
These are words of life!
The devil would have great success if he could trip up and sidetrack true Christians on the last stretch of their race to glory. The real victory is at the finish line!
We are now in the last stage of the final lap of our race home. Beware of the present dangers!
There are always consequences for removing or changing biblical truths, convocations and, verses.
We are not to mix the word of God with the word of man! The word, “Babylon” means mixture. The words, “holiness”, “saint”, “sanctify” all mean, separation.
What you do, including the things you celebrate and participate in, as part of your life’s customs and belief -system, shows how sold out you are on the world or the word.
In this edition, I want to have a look at the very powerful biblical, prophetic symbolism contained in the seven feasts of the Lord. I will also touch on some other most interesting aspects of prophecy, which relate to us all now.
What was, is and will come
The seven feasts of the Lord:
The feasts are: ●Passover, ●Unleavened bread, ●First fruits, ●Pentecost, ●Trumpets, ●Atonement, and ●Tabernacles. The Bible calls the feasts – holy.
The order of the feasts is most important, as they plot the course of history, besides, God’s word condemns changing, or removing any part of the word or the feasts!
The feasts support dispensationalism and a pre-tribulation rapture.
It was, and still is the Catholic church and all those of replacement theology, who omit or change the feasts, as well as the order. This is primarily to attack God’s word of prophecy upon Israel and keep the “ancient hatred” alive.
Contained in the feats in symbolic form, starting at Passover is: ●The release of the Jews from Egyptian slavery. ●The deaths of Israel’s Egyptian captors, and gods. ●The Exodus, the Red Sea crossing and the destruction of the Egyptians in pursuit. ●The cross of salvation as seen in the death angel passing over. ●The remembrance of the law giving on Sinai and the dispensation change of the law now given in the hearts of believers at the birth of the church. ●The next dispensation change at the rapture and the entrance to the tribulation period. ●The awe-filled national repentance of Israel as they recognise their Jewish Messiah. ●The entrance into the new Promised Land, Millennium, with the Jews, as the boss.
Do you see why these feasts are so very important? They plot the course of God’s prophetic word right through to the Millennium. Please note the central theme of the feasts, which is the place of Israel in God’s entire plan. It is Israel that is the golden, scarlet thread through it all.
Of course the church is right here in the feasts too, but the prophetic fulfilments for the Jews is of major importance in the grand plan, from Egypt to the wilderness, to the Promised Land, to the great spiritual awakening, to the cross of Messiah, to the tribulation, the second advent and the Millennium.
In fact, for the false, lying doctrine of replacement theology to really work, they must get rid of the Jews, and obviously all these symbolic, prophetic references in the feasts.
In many ways the feasts are the blessing of God, now turned into a curse for the Jews by large sections of the church, who remove and change these things.
I hope you see the dramatic, significance and importance of all these things together.
Prophetic wonders of Passover:
Passover is always has and still is celebrated with Matzos, being unleavened bread, scarred and spiked. Leaven is a type of sin in the Bible. So this alone speaks wonderfully, albeit symbolically of the purity of the believer.
The last item of the Passover celebration meal is called the afikomen. It is a piece of matzos inserted in a three-compartment linen bag, and hidden away in the home, until the kids are sent to look for it, at the end of the meal. When found it is broken and each member gets a piece.
This speaks of the three days and nights of our suffering servant and His being broken, striped and whipped for us. Of course, the Jews, in their blindness, by and large have not seen this yet. But this practise and many others at Passover speak of great prophetic things to come.
Bear in mind that Easter celebrators reject all of this and send their kids out to search for hidden Ishtar (the sex goddess) eggs, which has nothing in the world to do with the cross.
Some say, well at least the children have fun with Easter eggs and hot cross buns. Well, you could just as well give them a bottle of Bells to go with the bun!
Passover also sees the tradition of “zeroa” take place in which the shank-bone of a lamb is placed on the table. (Note that Catholics use a pig in their Easter and Christmas meal celebrations.) The lamb obviously points to the Lamb of God – Yeshual
The Passover meal always has an empty chair at the table. This is called “Elijah’s chair.” It speaks of the prophecy saying that Elijah will appear and announce the coming of the Lord, just like John the Baptist did. As the meal end someone goes to the front door, looks both ways, comes back in and says to all: “No he’s not here yet.”
This speaks wonderfully of hope and expectation for the coming of the Jewish Messiah! It is all far removed from anything to do with Easter!
The Passover meal is ended with the participants saying, “Next year in Jerusalem.” Again it speaks prophetically and of course is missing in Easter.
Prophecy in the feasts of the Catholic church:
The Catholic church celebrates only some of the feasts, but greatly changed, and on the wrong days, with the wrong names and associations.
I’m not going to go into it all here, but most of these big changes and omissions were done by the Catholic church with the express purpose of keeping the Jews out of this so-called church. Those interested, jut look it up!
One of the edicts of the early Catholic church, which most blinded Christians faithfully observe, even today, came from the Council of Nicea in 325 AD: “Christians were to have nothing to do with the odious Jews by commemorating Passover.”
But here is what the Bible says:
1 Corinthians 5:7-8 “Let us purge out the old leaven, for indeed Messiah our Passover was sanctified for us. Therefore let us keep the feast...”
The Catholic wafer, used by most churches today, is not Matzos, with the spikes and stripes representing the cross on it. That speaks of a cross-less symbolism. It speaks of “another Jesus!”
The ten plagues of Egypt are represented in Passover, but we see then again appear in the tribulation period as part of the wrath of God. The Days of Awe are also called the ten days of repentance. I wonder why these are cast down in significance by the Catholic church?
It is primarily the Catholic church that will be the centre of the wrath of God in the tribulation!
Obviously, the removal of the Days of Awe is saying that there will not be a large scale repentance of the Jews.
The Days of Awe leads to the feast of Tabernacles, which represents the Millennium dwelling just after the Second Advent, which will be Jewish led.
►Let’s not forget that the Catholics created the occult feats: ●Halloween. ●Valentine’s Day, ●Easter, ● Christmas. (look it up!)
Pentecost occurs 50 days after Passover, by command of God. (Leviticus 23:16)
Catholic Pentecost is 50 days after Easter. This makes everything out of sync with the Bible command not to change the Bible, including the feasts in any way. Of course this is totally ignored and cast out by all Catholics and the majority of Christians.
The removal of the book of Revelation:
In the fourth century the book of Revelation was removed from Catholic liturgy because it, too closely identified the Catholic church under judgement, being cast into the tribulation. (Revelation 2:22) The Revelation also speaks of a Jewish led Millennium. That is an anathema to the Catholics! Today the Revelation is in their Bible, but greatly downplayed, discouraged and avoided.
The great veil:
Repentance produces awesome light and sight.
2 Corinthians 3:14-16 “Their (Jews) minds were hardened. For until this day, the same veil remains un-lifted in the reading of the Old Covenant, because the veil is taken away in Messiah...When one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.”
Isaiah 35:5 “The eyes of the blind (Zion) shall be opened and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.”
Isaiah 42:16 “I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, and crooked places straight, and not forsake them.”
The supernatural tearing of the temple veil was a great miracle. Most people think of some flimsy little chiffon bridal veil. The temple veil was 60 feet long, 30 feet wide and 4 inches thick. It took 300 priests to move it!
At the instant of the cross of Calvary this enormous veil was supernaturally torn from top to bottom, without hands. (Matthew 27:50-51) The veil was torn from top to bottom, indicating that no man, only God did this, now giving all of God’s people entrance into His presence. (Hebrews 10:19)
The greater miracle is the mystery of Israel’s blindness. The Jews, including the priests saw the veil was torn, yet they still refused to repent and remained blind to all of this.
But the day of light and sight is soon coming!
The supernatural call of God:
The Jews, Jerusalem and Israel, have the call and covenant promise of God upon them, for His incredible soon-coming prophetic purposes. God has put His name on them all. Of course the world hates this, because they hate God.
The world has tried to kill the Jews right from their very foundation, because the greatest drama of all time is wrapped up in them.
So, how do you get rid of the Jews? Well, you kill them. If that doesn’t work, like it didn’t with Hitler, and the mass-murdering popes of the Inquisitions, then you assimilate them into the nations.
And if that doesn’t work, like it never has, because the Bible says it is impossible, then, like the mass media, you continue talking a mixture of hogwash and garbage, and act like an ostrich, with your stupid head in the sand.
Likewise, how do you get rid of true Bible believing Christians, who love and stand with our Lord and Israel? Well, you kill them of course – just martyr them. If that doesn’t work, just assimilate them into the world and make them no different.
They must hide their light and shut their mouths. If that doesn’t work, they can assimilate into the dead, counterfeit, cross-less, spineless, flamboyant church of pomp and pride.
Perhaps, someone needs to tell CNN, the BBC, SKY, NBC and others that you can’t kill God or His word or work. All you can do is get yourselves destroyed for trying.
The Red Sea is about to close in on the world’s mass-media. I wonder how many can swim!
The spirit of antichrist is the spirit that comes against the Messiah, replaces Him, and also comes against the Jews Jerusalem and the land of Israel, because these have the name of God and work of God in their midst. This spirit also comes against all that is of God, including His authority structures in the nations of the world.
Daniel 8:23-25 “In the latter times of their kingdoms (world empires), when the transgressors have reached their fullness, a king shall arise, having fierce features, who understands sinister schemes (the antichrist) His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power. He shall destroy fearfully, and shall prosper and thrive; he shall destroy the mighty and also the holy people...He shall even rise against the Prince of princes, but will be broken without human hand.”
The genocide, mass extermination, and massacre of the Jews that became known as Hitler’s “final solution” – the Holocausts of history, are now fermenting in the world, and organisations like the US Democratic Party, the British Labour Party. It is fermenting in New Zealand and others. The ancient seeds are being sown again.
The forerunner to the Holocaust - Zeus:
The name Zeus is also associated with the name Satan.
The Holocaust did have a number of precedents in history.
The word, “Holocaustum,” means “sacrifice by fire.”
This evil Temple of Zeus was the place where Christians, like Antipas were martyred, by being burnt alive inside metal bull-shaped ovens, with fires beneath.
The Temple of Zeus, the crowning glory of ancient Pergamum, was later deconstructed and moved to Berlin, Germany, where it was commissioned by Hitler in 1930, just before the Holocaust.
Hitler staged a number of ‘light spectaculars” from the platform of the Temple of Zeus.
Hitler called one of them the “Cathedral of light,” with 150 search-lights all pointing skywards from the Zeus pulpit, where, just below, the “holy oath” of the Nazis was taken by the masses, to exalt Nazism and denigrate the Jews. The oath said: “Blazing flames hold us together into eternity.”
The tragedy is that it’s all coming back! The same spirits are still alive and being used.
Revelation 17:3 speaks of the mother of harlots being drunk on the blood of the saints and the blood of the martyrs.” Most commentators (including myself) believe that the “mother of harlots”, here is a reference to the Catholic church, and others like it, in the tribulation period.
Relating to these churches in the tribulation period, the Bible speaks of them as knowing the depths of Satan. (Revelation 2:24)
The angel of death passed over the Jews in Egypt, and again stood before Israel, in the form of ●Hitler’s final solution, ●Islam’s final solution – death to the Jews, and the ●Catholic church’s solution of replacing the Jews with themselves.
The trumpets are sounding, the shofar of warning is blowing and Israel’s captors, haters and enemies will soon fall into the same fate as all of them in antiquity. Why does the world not learn?
Teachers of light and of darkness:
Bible prophecy warns of perhaps the greatest end-time sign – deception!
Candidates for deception include: ●Those ignorant of the Bible, ●those who elevate their teachers, putting them on a pedestal. ●Those who elevate their traditions and customs above God’s word. ●Those who refuse to deny self, and take up their cross daily. ●Those who don’t have time to study and pursue our Lord and His word. ●Those who mix the occult into the truth and those who have given themselves thoroughly to false teachers.
False teachers have a false authority and illegitimate power, but there is an authority there, which you dare not submit to for one second.
All false teachers spread spiritual darkness, but do not see everyone that disagrees with you as a false teacher! False teachers are of a false spirit, which you should be able to identify.
Spiritual darkness is a driving force. It is alive.
There are a number of original words used for darkness. Here are some meanings:
Obscurity, destruction, heaviness, ignorance, wickedness, gloominess, and calamity.
Isaiah 8:21-22 “Then they shall be enraged and curse their king and their God and look upward. Then they will look to the earth and see trouble and darkness, gloom and anguish, and they shall be driven into darkness.”
Jeremiah 23:12 (False prophets) “Like slippery ways in the darkness, they shall be driven forward and fall; for I will bring disaster on them.” (Zephaniah 1:15)
God’s word turns darkness into light and sheds light in the shadows of evil and death.
The truth will set you free! It will set you free from yourself and your desire to be right and make God wrong. It will make you free from sin. It will set you free from the domains of invisible demons. It will make you free from oppressive ignorance, and make you wise!
Acts 26:18 “...Turn them from darkness to light and from the power of Satan, to God...”
Under whose authority does the mainstream church remove 27% of the Bible, which is prophecy, and doom their pew - warmers to pure ignorance? If you don’t know the full truth, how can you spot a lie? Or how can you prevent deception?
Acts 17:30-31 “Truly these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness.”
The intense hatred for Christians will manifest as they stand for Israel, when her time of trouble approaches. Much of Israel’s coming trouble in the tribulation period will be because of her own rebellion to God and His judgement, but much will be caused by the world, its god – Satan, and the counterfeit church.
It is time for the church to stand with Israel – now. It is time for the church to get rid of its paganism and be clean.
I’m not talking about getting into legalism. That is the ditch on the other side. I’m talking about seeing, knowing and standing with and for our Lord’s great works soon to intensify.
Exodus 6:6-7 “Say to the children of Israel: ‘ I am the Lord; I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, I will rescue you from their bondage, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and great judgements...Then you shall know that I am the Lord.’”
This is a composite of a few of my pictures, to create a dreamy effect.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
