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.

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 345: January 4th 2016
The Three Wars of WW111
The Three Wars of WW111
Most Bible prophecy teachers believe that the yet–to-be fulfilled prophesied wars of Isaiah 17 dealing with the destruction of Damascus, the war of Psalm 83 and the war of Gog and Magog are separate events, because the nations involved are different.
I agree that what I’m going to present to you now can’t be cast in stone, but I have compelling and surprising evidence that is going to change the way many have looked at these wars before. What I’ve done for your benefit, is gone back to all the verses including the parallel verses and studied them afresh, including word studies.
I am not presenting this as “new exclusive revelation”. It is food for contemplation. If you want to keep to the regular view...well and good.
We are all going to find out very soon anyway! A major purpose of this edition is to motivate you to get ready in heart and knowledge and be ready.
►Did you know that the gematria of the words “Gog and Magog” in Hebrew have the numerical value of 70? Did you know that the Torah speaks of 70 nations making up the world after the destruction of Babylon? Did you know that 70 nations are meeting in France on January 15th over the issue of ownership of Jerusalem and peace in the Middle East?
Did you know that the number 70 in the Bible means perfect spiritual order, but also means judgment and captivity, being associated with it in numerous places? The story is HERE.
Good luck France – you are going to need it...you’re about to run headlong into the fury of God!
Can these three wars be the same event?
The Bible often makes reference to one event by different authors in different books of the Bible. It’s like newsmen at an event. They see the same thing, but from different perspectives.
What if these three wars are one and the same, just seen differently by the different authors?
If these three wars are the same, it gives us a clear idea of when it will happen. It also sheds some new light on which nations will be involved. It also shows us just how close we are.
Why have the three wars been seen as separate events?
Psalm 83: This war has been traditionally seen as a separate event occurring some time before the fall of Damascus and the Magog war. The reason cited is that the nations of the Psalm 83 war are not found in the other wars.
The nations mentioned in the Psalm 83 war are: Edom and the Ishmaelites. The people of Moab, Ammon, Philistia, Tyre and Assyria. In modern terms, these are the nations of Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and an inclusive reference to the Palestinians, which by extension would be Hamas, Hezbollah and others.
Some of these will also be in the war of Gog and Magog, but Ezekiel extends it much further:
Ezekiel 38:6 (Magog) “...and many nations with you.” Verse 9: “...you and your troops and many nations with you.”
The Damascus war also includes many other nations:
Isaiah 17:12 “Woe to the multitude of many people who make a noise like the roar of the seas, and to the rushing of nations, that make a noise like the rushing of many waters.”
My point is, we can’t be totally dogmatic on the nations involved in these wars. The revealed nations are the major players, but as we have seen, they all include a great mixture of other nations.
You can’t eliminate nations, because they are not mentioned by name, when they may be implied in the general “many nations”.
Some teach that the Psalm 83 war was fulfilled in the “War of Independence” in 1948. You can apply some of it to that war, but when studying the passage, you see it is still in the future. This war ends this way: Psalm 83:16-18 “Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek your name O Lord...that men may know that You, whose name alone is Lord, are the Most High over all the earth.”
This implies that many of the participating Arab nations will seek the Lord and be found by Him at the end. This is a parallel with Isaiah 19:25, where many Arab nations get saved.
The participants of the Damascus war:
Let’s have a look at one of the parallel verses to Isaiah 17, which is the main chapter on the Damascus war. Amos 1:5-17 sheds additional light on this war.
Amos 1:5 “I will break the gate of Damascus and cut off the inhabitants from the valley of Aven and the one who holds the sceptre from Beth Eden. The people of Syria shall go captive to Kir, says the Lord.” Verses 7-8: “I will send fire on the wall of Gaza. The remnant of the Philistines (modern day Palestinians) shall perish, says the Lords.” Verse 13 “For the transgressions of Ammon (Palestinians today) I will not turn away its punishment...because they tried to enlarge their territory.”
So the Bible says that Syria will go captive to Kir. There are two possibilities for “Kir” One is a small outpost in Jordan and the other is a larger area in Iran with its city called Kerman.
If Syria is to go captive to Kir, it is very likely that it is Iran. Today, Iran, Syrian, Russia and all of these surrounding nations are in play.
So when the Damascus war comes to its bitter end, Amos places Iran as the final captor.
This means that the Damascus war could be part of the great Magog war, because Iran (Persia) is very much part of it.
If this is the case it also means that the entire inclusive conflict will begin before the tribulation begins or just into it, due to the seven-year clean up period. (See further down)
Ammon is in Jordan, but by extension includes many of the Palestinian people.
Some of these nations are also present in the war of Magog. Bear in mind that the Bible doesn’t have to name every nation. A huge horde of nations are implied in the term “And many nations with them.”
Bear in mind that the Damascus war has to place it at the end of these wars, because it is “never to rise again”. It can’t be destroyed, never to rise again, and then rise again to participate in either Psalm 83 or Magog.
The causes of the three wars, collectively called WW111:
War 1: Psalm 83:4 “Let us cut them off (Israel) from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.”
Psalm 83: 12 “Let us seize for our own use these pasturelands of God.”
War 2: Isaiah 17:14 (Damascus) “This is the portion (destruction) of those who plunder us and the lot of those who rob us.”
War 3: Ezekiel 38:12 “You will come to take plunder, to take booty (spoil)...to take livestock and goods. Verse 13: “To take silver and gold.”
So, now we see similarities between the causes of all three wars.
As we all well know, Israel is in the firing line now. It is greatly despised by many nations, but why? The Bible calls it an “ancient hatred.”
Israel is rich with economic abundance as well as being the bread-basket of the world in many respects. Israel has turned the desert into a fertile field! (Isaiah 35:1-2)
Most of Israel’s surrounding nations are in abject poverty especially as far as agriculture goes. They would love to get their hands on this abundance.
But there is a greater cause for the wars.
Ezekiel 35:5-6 “Because you (Arabs / Palestinians) have an ancient hatred, and have shed the blood of the children of Israel by the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, when their iniquity came to an end. Therefore, as I live, says the Lord God, I will prepare you for blood and blood will pursue you...”
Please note the timing of this ancient hatred. It manifests during the time of Israel’s “calamity” and when their “iniquity comes to an end.” This is in the tribulation period, but may begin beforehand. Either way it’s not hard to see that it is now or close to it.
We can easily understand the first revealed cause of WW111, which is to take over the economic wealth and agricultural abundance of Israel. But the second cause, which is to destroy Israel, is a bit more involved. It stems from the Arab / Palestinian / mass-media’s “ancient hatred.”
This hatred for the Jews includes resistance to their God-given covenant ownership of all of the land of Israel. The so-called “occupation” and the so-called “settlements” are the fuse that will set WW111 ablaze.
You see, a nation can’t just go in and claim the spoils of produce, economic wealth and agriculture without a good reason. The lie of the occupation is the very smoke-screen reason! (I’ll deal with this in greater depth in the next edition.)
The poverty of attacking Arab nations is also a reason. They may have oil wealth, but that’s the end of it. Russia is also pretty close to economic collapse and most certainly, food poverty.
Nothing is new! It’s the “eternal Arab hatred” and jealousy for God’s blessing on the Jews. It’s the hatred for God’s choice. It’s the conflict of the ages between God and Satan. It’s the satanic empowerment of the mass-media. It’s because the Jewish Messiah will soon come to Jewish Jerusalem! It’s because so many of the riches of the world, including the Bible came to us through the Jews.
This everlasting and ancient hatred must be seen in light of the contraposition of the everlasting and ancient covenants and promises of God to the Jews and their land and Jerusalem.
The mystery of the seven-year clean-up:
The Great war of Gog and Magog contains a mysterious seven-year clean up after the war.
Ezekiel 39:9 “Those who dwell in the cities of Israel will go out and set on fire and burn the weapons...and they will make fires with them for seven years.”
Here we are told that the clean up after the war will take seven years. The weapons are burnt, implying that there may have been some sort of contamination or residue upon them. The point is that the seven-year clean-up would not likely extend into the Millennium. In other words the war does not take place at the end of the tribulation period as many believe, but right at the beginning.
The war could and most probably will occur just before the tribulation begins. This would also “allow” the other two wars to be part of it.
Bear in mind that the clean-up takes seven years not the war. The war itself may be very short in duration.
This war could in fact be the subject or part of the subject of the Daniel 9:27 peace agreement.
I agree that there are many characteristics of this war that appear to indicate that it is a tribulation period war. It may end up being so, but I doubt it because of this seven-year clean-up.
This war is found in Ezekiel chapters 38 & 39. Bear in mind that in the original there are no chapter headings or division. This means that the war comes right after Ezekiel 37. This chapter is referred to as the “dry bones” chapter, in which the Jewish people begin to come to life spiritually. It is also when they are restored to their land and the “tabernacle” (temple) is set up.
The Jews are beginning to come to life spiritually right now. Yes there is a way to go, but these things can and will happen quickly. The Jews are back in their land and have been since 1948. Again the 2nd Exodus is far from complete, but it is on the go now. We still await the Temple, but that also could happen quickly and is already all over the Israeli media.
So it looks like many ducks are in a row already!
And what of Donald Trump?
In previous editions, I’ve said that the US may be indicated in the prophecy of Ezekiel 38:13. It speaks of nations called Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish and the young lions, implying that they are allies of Israel in this conflict, coming against those coming to “take plunder”.
“Sheba” is Saudi Arabia today, “Dedan” is Yemen and the “merchants of Tarshish” were people from Spain who traded fabrics and other products with what is today Britain. The lion is the symbol of Britain, so the “young lions” would be the commonwealth nations, including the USA.
There are already many signs of softening relations between Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Israel. This also implies that Donald Trump is walking onto the stage as an ally of Israel just at the right time!
Don’t go overboard on these identifications, but they are most certainly food for thought, and a bit more than speculation.
So who is the aggressor?
The media keeps telling the ignorant and uniformed, that it’s all the fault of the Jews and they are the aggressors. But the Bible reveals the opposite.
Joel 3:19 “Egypt shall be a desolation and Edom a desolate wilderness, because of violence against the people of Judah, for they have shed innocent blood in their land.”
The verse above is most important. It identifies Egypt, which is still the same today, but also “Edom” which is present day Jordan. It is also the root of many of the Palestinians today. So we can say that it refers to the Palestinian Arabs. The verse says that they (Palestinians) have shed innocent blood (Jews) in the land of Israel.
Psalm 137:7 “Remember O Lord against the sons of Edom, (Arabs / Palestinians) the day of Jerusalem, who said, ‘raze it, raze it, to its very foundations.’”
The Palestinian people today can trace their identity back to the people of Ishmael, those of the “house of Esau”, those of Edom, Ammon, and those of the Amalek peoples.
Bear in mind that there is no actual real Palestinian people. They came from numerous Arab nations, including Egypt. There never was a Palestinian state called Palestine with its own flag, national identity, language, currency and all the other things that constitute a nation state.
When the land of Israel was briefly called “Palestine” it was under the British mandate and Jewish ownership.
This is the year of WW111. It is also the year of world war against the truth.
The world has become immune to the shocking scenes of daily destruction in the cities of Syria. It seems that very little will shake the world out of their comfort zones and complacency. But beware! The Lord will begin to shake everything that can be shaken very soon. (Hebrews 12:26)
Prophecy watchers need to be full of the knowledge of God’s word and always ready for our Lord to reveal new things or aspects of prophecy as they unfold.
In a number of previous editions, I’ve suggested, always cautiously, that these wars may run into each other.
Some additional characteristics of WW111:
Ezekiel 38:16 speaks of the Magog war taking place in the “latter days” That does not mean the very end of the tribulation at the Second Coming. Ezekiel 38:19 speaks of a great earthquake in the region rocking the entire world including the fish, birds, beasts around the world occurring during this war. Some interpret this to be one and the same earthquake spoken of at the Second Coming.
But the word used here is not the normal word for an earthquake. This word should be translated, “a great shaking” This could also be a result of nuclear war. This war will affect the whole world; it does not mean a literal earthquake that will rock the whole world.
The original word used is “Raash” sometimes translated as “fierce commotion”, “great shaking and trembling”, “great confusion” and sometimes “earthquake.” The context suggests the previous words and not “earthquake.”
There will of course be many great intense earthquakes in the tribulation period.
If the word is a literal earthquake it presents some problems. Firstly, it occurs in the Middle East. How do you get an earthquake in that region to devastate the whole world including the fish, the vegetation and so on? The fall-out from a world nuclear war and its great shaking fits the bill much better.
Be careful out there:
Exactly when this Great War, WW111 takes place is not the central issue. Whether the three wars are one or separate again, is not the central issue. The big issue is the causes! It is really terrible news for the Arabs / Palestinians as a whole, but what about you?
Do you know that the Bible shows that we ain’t seen nuttin yet in terms of worldwide anti-Semitism and the fullness of replacement theology in the church?
Do you know that all the nations in the world will finally come against Jerusalem (Zechariah12:3)? This means that a great many people will end up turning against God, making war with Him!
Do you know that if you are not secure in the Lord, this may become the greatest deception ever, sweeping millions of Christians into the devils anti-Semitic and replacement theology camp?
They will fill the tribulation period with people of terror and great regret.
An outpouring of satanic spirits of error and deception will find a home in the hearts of all who are ignorant and arrogant.
►Ignorance of God’s word is the field full of satanic seeds. Arrogance is the drought that dries up all understanding of God’s ways and word.
As the 2nd Exodus gains momentum and comes to its completion in the salvation of the Jews, so the Exodus gains momentum of believers from the truth! We are already in a world war against truth!
As millions of Jews soon get saved, ushering in the Second Coming, so Satan will kill millions in these wars.
These three wars may end up being one and the same. If so, it’s soon – very soon. If not they will still be near enough to each other to spoil your whole day.
The cause of the war is the ancient hatred of anti-Semitism arising to devastating proportions, and their desire to kill, steal and destroy Israel’s blessings. Many ordinary people, the man in the street – many streets, will be swept away into the great deceptions that will surround these wars.
Don’t be one of them. Keep off the streets! My friends we are about to enter spiritually charged days like never before. It is time to know your God, His word and His way, and just where His blessings lie.

Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 344: December 28th 2016
What if you are not left behind?
What if you are not left behind?
New things lie before us in many more ways than one!
We all know the “Left Behind” series and the many other teachings out there on what to do if you are left behind at the rapture.
What if you’re not left behind at the rapture? Have you ever thought of the implications and the many things that will immediately set you into your unchangeable eternal state?
My objective in this edition is to provoke you to some serious thought and then serious action.
1 Corinthians 3:12-15 “If anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become manifest; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work it is...if it endures, he will be rewarded. If it is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.”
Can you be wrong on many issues and still be saved? What if you are wrong on many biblical issues and the rapture takes place and away you go?
What if the rapture takes place and you were quite right on many issues? What if your heart was wrong? What if your heart was right?
One thing you can’t do is go back and change things, make them right, and repent after you have gone in the rapture. You can change things now.
In this edition, I want to look at some of these eternal issues and what actually constitutes a truly successful Christian from God’s point of view.
Today we are in one of the worst times ever and one of the best times ever. The pressures to compromise are intense. Deception is rife. Sin and wickedness are advancing at a phenomenal rate. Hatred for the gospel and messengers of it is monumental.
But in the midst of all this “grace does much more abound.” (Romans 5:20). We can and must take the pressures and make them work for us. Cast off, reject and destroy from our lives all the evil and turn the tables and grow in purity and holiness.
The ways of the word:
The requirements for a truly successful life are just the same as they always have been.
“Study to show yourself approved to God”, or don’t study and show yourself approved to the world and man. Compromise will take the pressure off! You can Christianize and sanction the devil and make his ways your ways, but you will pay the price.
Jeremiah 15:16 “Your words were found, and I ate them, and Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; for I am called by Your name, O Lord God of hosts.”
Job 23:12 “I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.”
The way to grow in the Lord is revealed in the verses above and the tragedy of the modern spineless Christian is revealed in the verses below, which are the way to be a normal worldly Christian neatly fitting in with the ever-changing world.
John 12:43 “They loved the praise and approval of men more than the praise of God.”
Galatians 1:10 “Do I seek to please men? If I still pleased men, I would not be a servant of Messiah.”
My friends, most Christians today live with this tragic “machine” driving them – seeking the approval of the world! The world will and does welcome them, but they doom themselves to the shallows of spiritual bankruptcy.
You defy the devil or accommodate and appease him. If you are wise you will resist him, then he will flee from you. If you don’t, do you think he will flee from you? You are inviting him to stay – a very stupid thing to do.
You must learn to love and devour the truth and reject error. If you don’t or won’t, truth then becomes relative, which makes it not truth.
Truth of God’s word must burn you, cut you and hurt you. But then it sets you on fire with an unquenchable godly fire of His glory. It sets you truly free! Being a man pleaser, a world appeaser, a pagan participator (Christmas etc) nullifies the power of the cross in you and makes you weak, blind, enslaved and imprisoned. You will be too blind to even see it.
Many can’t forsake their worldly traditions because it makes them odd with the devil and his people, and right with God.
The terrible tragedy is that most people can’t see that they are just another brick in the world’s wall – all just the same and powerless. They may well be saved – but by the skin of their teeth!
When the world begins to hate you for your righteousness, then you know that you are on the right track. When the word reveals the world to you and you see it clearly as a kingdom of darkness, you are on the winning way.
This is the time for more and more spineless preachers of compromise to make the church darker and darker and more ineffective. It is the time for more and more appeasement of evil and sin and for many to come against the truth and the bearers of the truth.
You will be known by people and by God, by your fruits. You will be known by what you compromise on, sanction and allow, and on what you take a stand on and resist.
Are you one with your traditions like Christmas and Easter for example? The cross divides and separates between the holy and the unholy. If you are still one with your pagan traditions, you do not know the power of the cross. You can’t defeat enemies while you think they’re your friend!
Traditions work in the same way that Hitler did. He said: “Make the lie big enough and say it often enough and the people will believe you.” This is what the devil does. He has done it through Catholic invasions of truth and through the media.
The compromised church of today:
The mainstream church today is how not to be! The church’s love affair with the world, its traditions, its sins and evils are mainstream today and have even infiltrated into many Spirit-filled churches.
The love and acceptance of sin and evil in the church is pandemic. It is commonplace.
Do not compare yourselves among yourselves or among the churches. Your measure is the word of God and the fruits it produces.
What you take a stand on is the backbone of your beliefs and shows who and what you really are. What you compromise on reveals how spineless and world-dominated you are.
Do you want great success in your life, with eternal consequences? Seek out what God sees as successful. Seek out what and who God truly blesses. Seek out what God’s favour always falls on and what He chooses, and simply choose the same things.
If you go in the rapture, you will immediately see and know all things! You’ll immediately know every sin, every thought, every good motivation, every right and wrong thing.
Imagine the unbeliever’s shock of arriving in hell and discovering that none of their born-again friends are there. Imagine the shock of arriving in hell and discovering that it is all real and not a nightmare and that the Bible was true all along!
If your God is not great in all His holiness, purity and judgement, you will not endure in these days.
At this time of the year, people often say to me “happy Christmas”. I say thank you but don’t return it. Sometimes they ask why and I say that I have nothing to do with Christmas. Before even wondering why, they get offended that their idol is not being placated. They don’t think because they can’t.
Ministers themselves promote pagan-rooted traditions without question!
The basics of the Christian faith:
The following are the titles of some brilliant books by Watchmen Nee. I’ve read them about 5 times over: “Not I but Christ.” “Love not the world.” “The Messenger of the cross.” “Spiritual authority.”
There is actually a progression in those titles alone. As we realise that “I” must go to the cross and be crucified, then love for the world begins to decrease. We then become the “crucified” messenger of the cross...We become the message! This is what gives us spiritual authority to overcome the world and defeat the enemy.
If you are on the right track you will: ●“Hate your life in the world”. (John 12:25) ●You will see yourself as “undone”. (Isaiah 6:5) ●“Death will be at work in you”. (2 Corinthians 4:12) ●You will be “decreasing as He increases”. (John 3:30) ●You will be empowered by the inexhaustible resurrection power of the cross. (1 Corinthians 1:18)
1 Corinthians 2:2 “For I determined not to know anything among you except Yeshua Messiah and Him crucified.”
This is all elementary. It is foundational of our faith and the way forward. It is the way of cross- bearing.
Trying to live the Christian life always results in failure. It always results in a works orientated life and a legalistic approach to the things of God. But when you give up and throw yourself on your face before our Lord and say “I can’t do this,” God says thank you very much, now we can get started.
Jeremiah 10:23 “O Lord, I know the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man who walks to direct his own steps.”
Eternal rewards are given for:
One of the purposes for the judgement of reward is to have our lives evaluated. There will be shame and sorrow as we stand before our Lord, but it will be just for a moment. It is to set us in our eternal state. We will differ from each other as the stars do - forever. (1 Corinthians 15:41-42)
The rewards consist symbolically of crowns: The incorruptible crown, the crown of rejoicing, the crown of righteousness, the crown of life, the crown of glory.
Rewards are also referred to as: Heavenly treasure (Matthew 6:20, 1 Peter 1:4) Special blessings. Special responsibilities will be given to rule with our Lord in the whole universe. (Matthew 19:28; Revelation 2:26.)
●A reward is given for “A glass of cold water given in His name.” In other words it is many small seemingly meaningless things. Please note a reward is not given for a glass of cold water given! It is for what is done in His name, for Him and His kingdom.
●“Those who are born of God will overcome the world” (1 John 5:4). We will be rewarded for beating the rat race and ignoring the Joneses.
●Rewards will be given for circumspect, non-greedy living and living with less.
●Rewards will be given for denial of self through the taking up of our cross daily.
●Rewards will be given for defence of the truth (2 John 1:7-8)
●Rewards will be given for standing with Israel.
●Rewards will be given for knowing Him and making Him known.
●Rewards will be given for hearing God’s calling for our lives, and doing it.
●Rewards will be given for being a radical Christian in all ways.
●Rewards will be given for judging rightly and well. (1 Corinthians 2:15)
●Rewards will be given to those who are kind and compassionate to animals. (Red setters in particular – yes you Joanne)
●Rewards will be given for generous giving and hospitality (Luke 6:38 James1:17)
●Rewards are given for prayer and fasting (Matthew 6:6)
●Rewards will be given for compassion for the suffering. (Matthew 25:37-40)
●Rewards will be given for being hated. (Luke 6:22-23)
●Rewards will be given for loving your enemies. (Luke 6:35)
●Rewards will be given for endurance (2 Corinthians 4:17-18, 1 Peter 1:6-7)
●Rewards will be given for quality work in employment (Colossians 3:23-24)
Loss of reward (Unholy smoke!)
The Bible likens the believer’s rewards to gold, silver, precious stones and wood hay and straw, all being hit by fire. A puff of smoke is all that will be left of the second group. It also says that some will have no enduring reward, but be saved so as by fire.
So what causes the loss of eternal reward in our lives?
It would be pretty much the opposite of many of the things listed above, but also our wilful sin.
It will most certainly include the following of false doctrine. It will be for getting wrapped up in legalism and following pagan, unholy, Bible-condemned traditions.
What is your life?
If I were to ask you, “What is your life?” You would come up with many good things that you have done in this world. If God asks you, “What is your life?” What would be your response?
Imagine wasting your life. Most can’t or won’t imagine it because they believe that are happy, successful people, and that is their measure of success. The problem that I am talking about is more real than what your eyes can see.
Today very few can take correction without getting bent out of shape and biting back at the one bringing them correction. We are in a world of extreme, excessive pride where people refuse to repent and change. They are spiritually disabled and crippled and doing eternal damage to their eternal reward-state.
Psalm 55:18-19 “He has redeemed my soul in peace from the battle which was against me...They do not change, therefore they do not fear God.”
Proverbs 14:6-8 (Amp) “A scoffer seeks wisdom in vain, for his very attitude blinds him and deafens him to it, but knowledge is easy to him who is teachable and who understands. Go away from the presence of a foolish and self confident man, for you will not find knowledge in his lips. The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way, but the folly of self-confident fools is to deceive.”
Exodus 33:13-14 “I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know you, and that I may find grace in Your sight. And consider that this nation is your people. And He said, ‘My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.’”
The power of the fear of the Lord:
Psalm 60:4 “You have given a banner to those who fear You, that it may be displayed because of the truth, that your beloved may be delivered.”
Job 28:28 “The fear of the Lord, that is wisdom, and to depart from evil is understanding.”
The fear of the Lord implies sensitivity to God.
The fear of the Lord is the most powerful experience we can learn. Without it there is great danger! The unsaved world will fear the Lord in the tribulation period, but it will be too late. “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” (Hebrews 10:31)
The fear of the Lord comes by choice. (Proverbs 1:29) It then grows as you get to know God more and more, led by His Spirit.
In His presence your view of everything changes. You can’t create it or manufacture it.
This is the secret key. It is the way right into God’s presence. It is the way to genuine, real, deep knowledge, understanding and wisdom of God.
The fear of the Lord is a doctrine hated and resented by Satan his demons and the world. It is despised by lukewarm Christians and all wolves in pulpits.
One day all arrogant people will stand before God. One thing they will not do is say to God, “Now listen to me God, this is what I believed in life!”
Our Lord’s book of favourites:
Does our Lord have favourites? Is He a respecter of persons? He is not a respecter of persons in terms of who can be saved. But He most certainly is in the bigger picture. In fact He has His own special book of His special favourites. Here it is:
Malachi 3:16-18 A Book of remembrance: “Those who feared the Lord spoke with one another, and the Lord listened and heard them; so a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the Lord and who meditate on His name. They shall be Mine says the Lord of hosts, on the day that I make them My jewels. I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him. The Lord shall discern between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not.”
Examine yourselves to see if you are in the faith, says the Bible. But it actually goes further. We also need to examine the things in our lives that we think we need but really don’t!
Those who stand with and for Israel will be great in the eternal kingdom:
Much of the way we should be is contained in the letter to the church at Philadelphia in the Revelation.
In loving Israel, we are choosing to love the object of God’s love. This is the seal of truth of our love for our Lord.
The church always suffers the effects when it loses sight of its Jewish roots and heritage. When it disobeys Gods command to choose the Jews, its foundation is cracked.
When you reject Israel and chose the Palestinians in their place, you are rejecting God and choosing Satan. It is Satan who has tried to choose Jerusalem. So pick your choice! But pick it wisely otherwise you will most likely end in hell with the leaders of Satan’s choice – the mass media.
Don’t tell me you love God if you love Satan’s choices! – You liar!
What you really love is evident in your words, what you talk about and what you do about it.
Zechariah 3:2 (Amp) “The Lord said to Satan, ‘The Lord rebuke you, Satan!’ The Lord who has habitually chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you.’”
Zechariah 2:12 “The Lord shall inherit Judah as His portion in the Holy Land and shall again choose Jerusalem.”
2 Chronicles 6:6 “I have chosen Jerusalem, that My name may be there; and I have chosen David to be over My people, Israel.”
Zechariah 8:2-3 “I am zealous for Zion with great zeal; with great fervour I am zealous for her. Thus says the Lord: I will return to Zion, and dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. Jerusalem shall be called the City of Truth, the Mountain of the Lord of hosts, the Holy Mountain.”
The Spiritual Man:
Psalm 119:59 “I thought about my ways, and turned my feet to Your testimonies.”
Have you been examining yourself to see if you are in the faith? (2 Corinthians 13:5.) Have you been “numbering your days” (Psalm 90:12) to make them count with God?
If you are spiritual: ●You will know them by their fruits. ●You will know them by their liberty and freedom. ●You will know them by their judgements. ●You will know them by their hatred for the world. ●You will know them by the world’s hatred for you/them. ●You will know them by their fear of God. ●You will know them by their knowledge, understanding and wisdom of God and His word. ●You will know them by their identification of and rejection of error and deception. ●You will know them by their holiness. ●You will know them by their love for the eternal destiny and souls of men.
Your spiritual life is far more important than you may imagine. It has eternal unchangeable consequences wrapped up in every aspect of it.
My friends you are on the verge of becoming eternally valuable; don’t miss the opportunities.
1 Samuel 26:24 “As your life was valued much this day in my eyes, so let my life be valued much in the eyes of the Lord, and let Him deliver me out of all tribulation.”
I would rather be condemned, judged and rejected by the world for defying it, than be condemned by God for standing in defence of the world.
I took these pictures of the two giants – the baobab tree and the elephants in our neck of the woods. I’ve put the tree through some filter effects.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 343: December 21st 2016
Christmas is a Catholic-created Jew-killer! Their salvation killer! The Catholics say the Jews killed Jesus. They are wrong. The Catholics, even now, long after the Inquisitions are most responsible for the Jews rejecting their Messiah.
There is one thing no Christian pastor or leader who supports Christmas can do – impossible. That is to believe God’s word on these things. They say they believe the Bible. They don’t. They must dethrone it, re-interpret it, nullify it and cast it down in favour of the word of the devil! (Or as is the case with many, be ignorant of God’s word in these most important issues.)
Bear in mind that God’s anointing is always on the truth and never on error. There is great freedom in the truth!
Do you think Christmas will be celebrated under the rulership of the Jewish Messiah in the Millennium? You’ve got be crazy!
I’m not going to get into all the origins of Christmas (and Easter) in this edition. If you want to, just look it up. Type into your search engine: “Pagan roots of Christmas,” or any such thing. There is more than enough evidence out there proving that every single aspect of Christmas has pagan, occult roots in the heart of Babylonian devil-worship. (See resources at bottom. Please read the final verse at the bottom – 10 times!)
Christmas was born in the heart of Satan. Saint Nick in fact, is a title for Satan (look it up). Every single aspect, practice, convocation, of Christmas, without exception, is rooted in witchcraft, stemming from ancient Babylon. This includes:
The name Christ Mass, is the Catholic convocation of the Eucharist, in which they believe that the wafer becomes the actual body of Christ. (Transubstantiation)Thus, they crucify our Lord over and over. The Bible says He died “once for all.”
The date, the Yule log, the ivy, the Christmas tree, presents, the eating of ham and everything else is rooted in Babylonian occult practice. Even the gold and silver balls decorating the tree originate from sun and moon worship. The Babylonians would fasten a fir-tree to the floor and decorate it with these sun and moon-worship objects. (Jeremiah 10:2-4)
Christmas is one with Catholicism, which is rooted in Babylon – all the way through. By the way, all of these principles relate to Easter as well. In fact, the name Easter is the Babylonian sex-goddess Ishtar.
So the modern church comes along and says, well, we don’t believe the occult pagan stuff, we just use the names and the practises. You have to really wonder at the logic of that!
Exodus 23:13 “Be circumspect and make no mention of the name of other gods, nor let it be heard from your mouth.”
Deuteronomy 7:25-26 “You shall burn the carved images of their gods with fire; you shall not covet the silver and gold that is on them (Lit=decorations), do not take it for yourself, lest you be snared by it; for it is an abomination to the Lord your God. Nor shall you bring an abomination (Lit=pagan idol) into your home, lest you be doomed to destruction like it; but you shall utterly destroy it and utterly abhor it, for it is an accursed thing.”
Zechariah 13:2 “It shall be in that day, says the Lord of hosts, ‘that I will cut off the names of the idols from the land, and they shall no longer be remembered. I will also cause the prophets and the unclean spirits to depart from the land.”
Why did Constantine and later the Catholic church introduce occult, Babylonian tradition into the church?
There were two main reasons. Firstly it was because Constantine had made Christianity the official religion of the land and he knew that his subjects practised these occult traditions, as he did. So by mixing them into the church, he believed he would make Christianity more palatable for the masses.
Secondly and much more important, the first leaders of the Catholic church were anti-Semitic in the extreme and knew that by replacing the feasts of the Lord with Christmas, Easter and the like, they would keep the Jews out of the church, because they would not participate in Babylonian occult practises.
Christmas is fully occult and pagan – so what!
Most Christians would say – the world thinks it is okay and even participates, therefore it must be okay. What a stupid argument! Most Christians would say, “I think it is okay, therefore it is okay. These people obviously have no knowledge of the Bible or no fear of God, or both.
Christmas is so loved by so many people – empty, superficial people, many are the walking dead full of the love and toleration of all things worldly.
There is no acceptable or clean and sanctified paganism. Some Christians erroneously use the verse “Becoming all things to all people” to justify their participation in devil worship. That verse never includes participation is sin.
The problem with all forms of Babylon-rooted paganism is that it has dramatic, far-reaching results, especially with the Jews, who know all about being enslaved in Babylon.
Since I got into all these things back in the late 70s, every time I see a Christmas tree I cringe!
The dramatic Anti-Semitic effects of Christmas on the Jews:
Let’s first of all look at God’s ways and requirements for His people in dealing with paganism.
Why did God harden Pharaoh’s heart? (Exodus 10:1)
We know that the children of Israel when captive in Egypt had adopted their pagan practises.
Here is a great shock! Do you know that one of the reasons for the Exodus was so the Jews could keep the feasts of the Lord?
Exodus 5:1-2 “Thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘Let My people go that they may hold a feast to Me in the wilderness.”
God’s method of bringing His people to holiness is for them to willingly choose Him and His ways. But if they will not come out of paganism, judgement follows.
Most people are not aware that one of the reasons God hardened Pharaoh’s heart and destroyed him and his armies, was essentially because he would not “let my people go” to keep the feast to Him.
The command of Moses was to “Let my people go” - from Egypt and the pagan worship which had infiltrated into the Jewish camp of Egypt.
The command of God is always “Come out and be separate.” We as modern believers have not been saved from and brought out of the world, only to continue in its evil! And where are God’s people to go to in their separation? They are to go to the Promised Land where God’s holiness resides. It is to go into His presence of purity and holiness.
You can say that what I’m speaking is rubbish, – be my guest. But welcome to your new world of a rock-hard heart...hardened by God!
Job 9:4 “...Who has hardened his heart against Him and prospered?”
Did you know that God is still in the heart-hardening business! Study your Bible! (It’s always the unrepentant that God blinds.)
You don’t come out of the world with a half heart, trying to placate and accommodate God and the devil. You don’t come out with one foot in the truth and the other in the witchcraft of Christmas as so many blind ministers teach.
►If you think that’s the thing to do, I have one question for you. Do you remember Lot’s wife? She ended up good to be crushed and put in the sprinkler jar next to the pepper.
Noah’s world and paganism:
The Bible speaks of the condition of the world in Noah’s day as fully evil, filled with sin, paganism, violence and the like. God warned then destroyed.
Bear in mind that Noah spent a great deal of his life building a boat for tomorrow, which was to float through the judgement and destruction of God upon the world. He and his family “came out” and were separate from the world.
The new world was holy and pure, although it didn’t last for long.
Noah’s new world after the flood was just as much his “promised land” as that of the children of Israel. It was pure and separate from paganism.
Satan’s ace trump has always been to defeat God’s people from within.
A message to the Jews:
As the veil of your spiritual blindness begins to lift, many multitudes of you are going to be looking for the truth. Many are already. Here’s how to know which Christians still want you dead and which ones really do love you and want you spiritually alive as fellow brothers and sisters.
Do the Christians in view want you to join and participate in the convocations of Rome, Babylon? Do they want to remove from you, all traces of the godly convocations like the feasts of the Lord? Do they want to change your Hebraic character to one born in Rome / Babylon? Their interest in you is more about you becoming enslaved again than set free in holy, pure salvation.
Some Christian ministers want you to mix Babylonian practice with church, and its pagan customs. These people are nothing. They are a zero. They have nothing for you.
Is the church in which you have taken an interest an open door for you Jews, not only in word but in practise and even appearance? Are there some Hebraic items on display such as art or on the walls? Does the church strike a chord in your heart, my Jewish friends, or is it to you just another temple of Baal, Babylon?
Interestingly, most people want to know about and share their heritage. They have an attachment to it. I’ve just received an email from a US reader sharing proudly his roots. He is a descendant of the 12th US President, Zachary Taylor. He shared some similarities between him and Trump.
The point is that the church should be proud of and preserving of its heritage and roots in Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Israel) – the Jews and the early church, before Constantine.
If you had come to this planet from Mars, and went to most churches, you would say they were born in the evil lap of the Catholics, who themselves were greatly influenced and inspired by Babylon.
The traditional churches want nothing to do with you, my Jewish friends, in spite of the fact that our book, the New Covenant Epistles commands us to “make you Jews jealous” and says that our gospel is to go to the “Jew first and then the Gentiles.”
God’s convocations and traditions, the feasts in particular, are called “holy” throughout the Bible.
The paganism of Christmas is unholy in the extreme and is condemned, judged, rebuked by God.
The great mistake many make is dealing softly, softly with the devil and his traditions.
You can befriend the traditions of the world, rooted in Satanism, or you can defy the devil. Defend or defy the devil – that’s it, isn’t it? Should we have sympathy for the devil?
The early church lost its first love, which would have included holiness, purity and truth. Very quickly, mixture came in. Mixture of truth and error will always defeat you and nullify the truth.
There is an unseen powerful authority imputed to these evil traditions. There is the powerful force backed and empowered by collective group-speak!
The big, huge problem with Christmas is that it is not offensive to the world. The world loves it and partakes in it. Stupid Christians try to “put Christ back into Christmas” when He was never anywhere near it!
The holy Feasts of Lord on the other hand are offensive to and rejected by the world. They do not participate in any way or form in any of the seven feasts. Neither do most Christians! Doesn’t that speak volumes?
My friends, I’ve been shot down a dozen times over my anti-Christmas stance, Never once in all my years of opposition to it (since the late70s) have I ever heard one single holy, and truth-bearing argument for it –ever. They are all spiritually short-sighted and lame.
The return of the Jews to their Jewish Messiah in salvation:
Numbers 33:50-55 Instructions for the conquest of Canaan: “Moses, speak to the children of Israel and say to them: When you have crossed the Jordan into the land of Canaan, then you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, destroy all their engraved stones, destroy all their moulded images and demolish all their high places...but if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then it shall be that those who let remain, shall be irritants in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they shall harass you in the land where you dwell.”
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.”
When the Jews return to their land, they are to return in cleanliness and not with the traditions of the Gentiles, which is what got them banished and dispersed in the first place.”
Ezekiel 36:25 “Then (in their return), I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols.”
Ezekiel 44:23 “They shall teach My people the difference between the holy and the unholy, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.”
As they return to the land, as we well know, there’s been an ongoing onslaught of attacks on them by all manner of anti-Semites.
The same is true as they return to the Lord for salvation. There is a host of anti-Semites, including many Christmas supporting Christians just waiting to entrap the Jews again. Of course they don’t see Christmas as entrapment.
Jeremiah 51:45 “My people get out of the midst of her (Babylon) and let everyone deliver himself from the fierce anger of the Lord.”
Zephaniah 1:4 “...Against the inhabitants of Jerusalem, I will cut off every trace of Baal (Babylon) from this place, the names of the idolatrous priests, with the pagan priests.
Deuteronomy 12:30-31 “Take heed to yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed before you, and that you do not enquire after their gods, saying ‘How did these nations serve their gods? I also will do likewise.’ You shall not worship the Lord your God in that way...”
In all these things we are to seek the truth. That doesn’t mean we are to put others down who haven’t seen it yet. The motivation to put others down is wrong, but at the same time, we dare not join in the error if we have the revelation of truth.
There is a much greater condemnation upon pastors, teachers and leaders, especially when they have the knowledge of the truth and support a mixture with error.
2 Corinthians 6:17 “Come out and be separate, don’t touch what is unclean and I will receive you...”
Revelation 18:4 “Come out of her (Babylon the great) lest you share in her sins and receive her plagues.”
►What an incredibly powerful and spectacular verse this is below!!
2 Kings 17:32-41 “...Priests of the high places sacrificed in the shrines of the high places. They feared the Lord, yet served their own gods according to the rituals of the nations...to this day they continue practicing their former rituals; they do not fear the Lord... also their children and their children’s children have continued doing as their fathers did even to this day.”
►In the two verses below we see protection and blessing offered in keeping from evil:
Deuteronomy 23:9 “When the army goes out against your enemies, then keep yourself from every wicked thing.”
Psalm 24:3-4 “Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? It is he who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the Lord.”
►This discourse in the two verses below is a real shocker. It so perfectly sums up the rebellious heart of the modern church, led by modern wolves. Note how the ears (hearts) of these people are hardened as a result:
Jeremiah 6:16-19 “Stand in the ways and ask for the ancient paths, where the good (holy) way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’ Also I set watchmen over you, saying, ‘listen to the sound of the trumpet!’ But they said, ‘We will not listen.’ Therefore hear you nations and know, O congregation, what is among them. Hear O earth! Behold I will certainly bring calamity on this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not heeded My words, nor My law, but rejected it.”
Isaiah 30:1-3 “Woe to the rebellious children, says the Lord, who take counsel but not of Me and who devise plans, but not of My Spirit, that they may add sin to sin; who walk to go down to Egypt (type of the world), and have not asked My advice, to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shadow of Egypt. Therefore the strength of Pharaoh shall be your shame, and trust in the shadow of Egypt shall be your humiliation.”
Isaiah 30:10-14 (Amp) “They say to the seers ‘See not; and to the prophets, prophecy not what is right; speak to us smooth things, prophecy deceitful illusions. Get out of the true way, turn aside out of the path, cease holding up before us the Holy One of Israel. Therefore thus says the Holy One of Israel, because you despise and spurn My word and trust in cunning and oppression (of the righteous), in crookedness and perverseness, and rely on them; Therefore this guilt shall be to you as a broken high wall and ready to fall, whose crash will come suddenly and swiftly, in an instant.”
Opening the salvation-door for the Jews:
Isaiah 43:12 There was no foreign god among you; therefore you are My witnesses says the Lord.”
So, Mr. Minister of the gospel, you think you are God’s own witness? This may be so – I honour you if so. If you have not got rid of the foreign gods of Babylon – you are no witness of the Lord, no matter what you say and think – especially to Israel.
As a minister or ministry, are you opening the door for the Jews or slamming it shut in their face!
The messages to seven churches in the Revelation reveal God’s assessment of the church. The church of Thyatira is believed by most (including me) to refer to the orthodox churches like the Catholics, Anglicans and other orthodox churches, which are all filled with Babylonian practise. This church is greatly condemned by God.
There are only two of the seven that are just right with Him.
The church of Philadelphia is highly commended by God. But look at one of the reasons:
Revelation 3:7 “These things says He who is holy, He who is true, He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts and shuts and no one opens.”
What is the “key of David?” It is revealed right here:
Isaiah 22:21-22 “...He shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and to the house of Judah. The key of the house of David I will lay on his shoulder; so he shall open and no one shut and shut and no one open...”
Do you see it, do you see it? I hope you do. This is speaking of the call of the Messianic church, which is to the Jew and Gentile. It speaks of ministries or ministers with a father-heart for the inhabitants of Jerusalem – the Jews.
This church would obviously be Hebraic in character, rejecting all forms of paganism. Note that the promise includes the very real God-given authority to “open spiritual doors and close others”. Note also that in verse 10, this church is promised rapture!
The message of the true church to the Jews:
Hanukah, the festival of light is appropriately named. Christmas is the festival of darkness, celebrating the false, Catholic, Gentile Jesus created by the Catholics.
Babylon for the Jew represents captivity. Christmas for the Jew, and a growing number of Christians, represents Babylon and the Catholic church.
There is absolutely no denying that most of the modern church has more of the character and flavour of Babylon in its midst than that of the early church before the advent of Catholicism.
The simple display of Hebraic items goes a very long way to characterising that church and making it a welcoming place for Jews.
The end purpose of Christmas is to destroy the Jews.
Traditions become a comfort zone, then a secure prison, a binding force backed by pure legalism. There’s nothing wrong with some traditions, but as soon as you enter the spiritual dimensions, you are dealing with spiritual powers and forces.
Beloved friends, and Jewish brothers and sisters to be: As Moses called you out and you came out, and as you were finally released from Babylonian captivity – DO NOT GO BACK into Babylon or the participation of any paganism in the church.
Many people in the church love you and would die for you, but many love themselves supremely and want you to die for them! Those enslaved themselves by Christian paganism hate you, no matter what they say. Lurking behind the spirit of Christmas is Satan himself waiting to trap you again.
If you want to be right with your Lord as He lifts the veil from your eyes keep yourselves separate from the occult practises of Christmas and Easter.
Some powerful resources:
Jeremiah 23:25-26 “I have heard what the prophets have said; who prophesy lies in My name, saying, ‘I have dreamed, I have dreamed!’ ‘How long will this be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies? Indeed they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart, who try to make My people forget My name by their dreams which everyone tells his neighbour, as their father forgot My name for Baal.’

Edition 342: December 14th 2016
Idols of the mass-media!
Idols of the mass-media:
By mass-media, I’m referring to the mass news channels like CNN, SKY, BBC, the print media and the like. Included, is the social media and the world’s entertainment industry.
“Coincidently” many of these mass-media operations are owned by the same companies, covertly or overtly. The owners are the real decision-makers in terms of overall policy. Very few of them are independent in the true sense of the word.
There is of course one big boss ruling all of them from behind the scenes. His name is Satan, “the god of this world”. He is very clever, because he has successfully hidden himself from all of his employees, yet his dictates direct and influence them thoroughly.
Idolatry is the worship, admiration, love of, or reverence for something or someone generally forbidden by the scriptures. This can also include hero-worship or simply the worship of self. Idol-worship is characterised by obsession, and control. It is aimed at exalting and elevating something or someone to god-status.
Idolatry is mixed and rooted with all things satanic. It is akin to witchcraft in many respects.
Journalism comes from a root word meaning “to inform.” The written, spoken or visual word carries with it a sort of blind authority. People automatically give it importance and impute, ascribe and assign truth to it.
The first and most important thing to bear in mind when dealing with the mass-media is that their ultimate intention is not to inform you but to change you. It is to change you into a subject acceptable to Satan.
●Biblically there is a pattern of learning revealed in 2 Peter 1:12 “I will not be negligent to put you in remembrance of these things, though you know them.”
Here we see the pattern of repetition as a godly method of learning and becoming informed. The mass-media employs the same technique but in a godless form. With biblical truth removed and cast down, the mass-media’s method of informing the people becomes fully evil. It was in fact used extensively and successfully by the Nazis!
Adolf Hitler said this: “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.”
This could well be the silent, unwritten motto of the modern media! It most certainly is true in their dealing with the things of God and Israel in particular.
Do you see the similarity with the big Hitler, mass-media statement and the use of repetition to produce enslavement?
When you (or the media) remove God from the environment, very quickly the devil becomes manifest! When the law of God is present in society it acts as a general restrainer. (Double meaning intended!)
Don’t be fooled, the media and its god is at work today, and you are one of their targets. They intend using you to fulfil their ultimate evil plan, which they can’t even see or know exists! The media generally, does not acknowledge the existence of Satan, demons and hell.
►The media-created man is a god in the making, an idol awaiting destruction by God.
Genesis 3:4-5, (Satan to Adam) “You will not surely die...you will be like God.” (If you obey me.)
There is a new brotherhood of all mankind under the fatherhood of the world’s god in the federation of the new world, but it’s full of sin, evil, wickedness and ungodliness.
Sin desensitises you to the Spirit of God. Unbelievers are already fully desensitised with a sin-dead conscious. In their world of variables, anything goes.
In this most powerful verse below, we see that the work of the spirit of the nations (mass-media included) is to remove restraint and break the bonds or cords of God’s control within us, but note their end!
Psalm 2:1-5 (Amp) “Why do the nations rage and assemble with commotion and uproar and imagine an empty scheme? The kings and rulers of the earth take counsel together against the Lord and His anointed One –the Messiah. They say, ‘Let us break their bands of restraint and cast their cords of control from us. He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord has them in derision and supreme contempt. He mocks them. He speaks to them in His deep anger...”
At the end of the day, the mass-media is inextricably linked to the nations of the world and the entire world-system and it has a course!
The main idols of the media:
There are far too many to numerate here, but let’s have a look at some:
●The idol of pride:
This is one of the big indirect idols of the media. They subtly teach you to be strong in the power of self. The Bible condemns it in the form of “the pride of life.” (1 John 2:16) They want you to be filled with pride. They want you to glorify self and elevate self and self-love above God’s ways, will and word. They want you to have their values and morality (or lack of it).
When you are filled with pride, you are totally useless to God. You are dead to God and blinded in your pride. You have been brought down. The media has successfully blinded you and changed you into one of their own products.
Job 41:34 “He (Satan) is king over all the children of pride.”
●The idol of illegitimate sex:
The mass-media promotes this all the time. It is an idol of modernity.
Anything-goes sex with anyone, anytime, anywhere, anyhow is against God’s word and is an affront to His institution of marriage. The media has legitimised it all in the name of human rights – exalted above God’s “rights.”
●The idol of wasted time:
An idol of the mass-media is to waste your time. The Bible says that we are to count or number our days. (Psalm 90:12) That actually means to make our days meaningful in terms of eternal value and reward. It means that we should not waste our time in things of no spiritual value.
Today almost everything of the entertainment world is a pure waste of time. It is self-indulgence to the extreme. It is the worship of idols, to say nothing of the evil morality behind it all.
I don’t really have a problem with people following or participating in sport, although I don’t at all. However, there is a fine line between it being okay and it crossing into idolatry.
●The idol of Inter-Faith:
All roads lead to God, says the mass-media. Lately they have been extremely vociferous in this regard. True biblical Christianity will forever be separate from all other religions, due to the eternal, separating power of the cross.
The media changes this, by removing the cross. They end up with “another Jesus”, a cross-less Barabbas. Because a new one-world religion is revealed in Bible prophecy, the media must sponsor it, promote it and idolise it.
●The idol of Palestinian rights:
A powerful, big idol of the mass-media includes Palestinian rights above the rights of God.
Israel is much more than God’s choice; it is His workmanship. The mass-media actually really thinks they can destroy what God has made!
The new Jesus of the media is a Palestinian not a Jew.
The media is now involved in its great final, big end-time role as agent of Satan, rewriting God’s word, changing it to delegitimize the State of Israel and the Jews and to pour favour upon Islam. It is not only their pro-Palestinian stance that is the problem, but their growing attacks on Jews and Christian Zionists.
But Israel is far from perfect.
The following three verses reveal God’s judgement on Israel for their idolatry.
Ezekiel 23:30 “I will do these things to you (Israel) because you have gone after the Gentiles, because you have gone after their idols.”
Ezekiel 36:18 “I poured out My fury on them for the blood they had shed on the land, and for their idols which they had defiled it. So I dispersed and scattered them among the nations.”
Ezekiel 14:4-6 “...Everyone of the house of Israel who sets up his idols in their hearts, and puts before him what causes him to stumble into iniquity, and then comes to the prophet, I will answer him according to the multitude of his idols. Thus says the Lord God, ‘repent, turn away from your idols and all your abominations.’”
These verses are shocking and reveal the seriousness of these things. But has God forsaken His people? No never!
►We know that Israel will return and repent and be delivered.
►There is no indication that the Palestinians under Islam, will ever repent, except for odd individuals.
So why does the mass-media favour the Palestinians and Islam? Because “they are of their father the devil, and his will they will do!”
Smashing the Ten Commandments:
The mass-media has smashed the commands of God.
The mass-media has taken all the remnants of smashed-up truth and mixed it all together in a giant blender. It now includes: Truth, error, lies, true doctrine, false doctrine, idolatry, worship, witchcraft, sin, evil, right and wrong all mixed together.
The media think that by mixing all things together, they have the truth. What they have is their “truth” – fully judged and rejected by the living God!
Proverbs 17:13 “Whoever rewards evil for good, evil will not depart from his house.”
Proverbs 17:15 “He who justifies the wicked, and who condemns the just, both of the alike are an abomination to the Lord.”
Psalm 115:4-8 “Their idols are silver and gold, the work of man, they have mouths that do not speak, eyes that do not see, ears that do not hear...Those who make them (idols) are like them; so is everyone who trusts in them.”
The time has come to distinguish and separate, cut and break from the idols and lies of the mass-media. A foreboding, foreshadow and forewarning of destruction is all around us today. The writing is on the wall of the world. They have messed with the holy things of God.
Harbingers of gathering storm clouds are all around us. There are no words of wisdom, in the mass-media anymore. The modern graven images and golden calves of the mass-media are worshipped like idols today- and its getting far worse far more quickly.
We are now in the post- truth era!
The idols of error, sin, wickedness and all sorts of garbage promoted and loved by the mass-media has infiltrated into the church because spineless, blind pastors, bankrupt in spiritual weapons and gifts, have simply stood back and invited the devil in, disguised, right into the pulpit with them.
The condemnation on the deceivers:
Perhaps the greatest idol of the mass-media lies in their attempt to remove from you the fear of God. They proclaim and believe that we’re all in this together as humanists in a modern, post-truth era and no judgement is coming.
This is all a great deception.
Too many people love their deception. Of course they can’t see it, because deception has a powerful blinding force attached to it.
Too many hate those who bring them correction and point out their deception. They believe they’re above deception and correction.
Galatians 4:16 “Have I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?”
If you don’t know it, let me inform you that deception, evil, and sin has a strange beauty, appeal and attraction to them, but once you’re hooked – the beauty turns to horror and you get trapped.
The consistent, concerted cry of the media, all in agreement with each other, of necessity changes God’s word and removes God’s judgement. They set themselves up as people-leaders, and their influence sets the course of the world.
If you remove God’s judgment from His word, you have a happy all loving (in your interpretation of love) God of compromise, who is with you on the wide road of anything goes. You have nothing to fear! – You fool!
The Bibles speaks of the “goodness and severity of God”. With “severity” removed, there is nothing to fear.
Without the active fear of God in your life – you are on thin ice!
They think they are God’s editors.
The curse of social media:
The social media reveals exactly what happens when God is removed from society. Under the guise of anonymity, with no restraint within them, and no accountability to anyone including God, we have seen how values, virtues and morals are corrupted and destroyed.
The flood of fake-news websites has become pandemic. It influences, I would say, more than half the people on the various forums on the internet. It has become an open war on truth. It is a perfect example of the abuse and misuse of freedom and liberty by pure deceivers.
Freedom is not freedom if it abuses itself and allows itself to be destroyed.
Isaiah 59:13-14 “In transgressing and lying against the Lord, and departing from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood, justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off; for truth has fallen in the street and equity cannot enter. So truth fails, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey.”
God’s judgment is coming upon all these things. So what does the mass media do? Well they get rid of God’s judgment and say: “If there is a God, He is a God of love and accepts whatever we say He must accept.”
Hebrews 10:31 “It’s a fearful, terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”
2 Corinthians 5:11 “Knowing the terror of the Lord...”
People today including most Christians have no fear of the Lord. This is a great idol of the mass-media – a God who does not judge.
That’s in fact one of the reasons why they reject the end-time messages of the Bible. Eschatology reveals that God is a very fearful judge!
The media has proven themselves to be hopelessly biased. Their bias makes them betrayers of truth. They have betrayed your trust. They are betraying you now. They are telling you Satan’s “truth”. They are trying to make themselves your master.
They are trying to maintain their non-existent authority over you.
Be very sure of one thing, the mass-media puppets of their master will never escape the judgement of God that is coming upon them.
What a terrible indictment the following three verses are on the mass-media and the YouTube Jezebels, manipulators, liars, and deceivers.
***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?’”
Do you see what this verse above is saying? It is saying that the messengers of falsehood, who reject biblical truth, are fools! And the world elevates them and puts them on a pedestal!
***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.”
***Exodus 23:1-2“You shall not circulate a false report. Do not put your hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness. You shall not follow the crowd to do evil...”
►“You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32)
►You shall know the “truth” of the mass-media and be deceived and imprisoned.
Having said this, there are many wonderful, very good messages and ministries using YouTube social media and the Internet. It remains a powerful far reaching tool, if used correctly. If you look up at the “Visitor Map” at the top of this website, you can see that The Prophetic Scroll is now in every nation of the world in over 80 languages, with over 31 million regular viewers. (Available on my internal statistics generator.)
That would all be impossible without the Internet.
The incurable curses upon the mass-media:
The mass-media will be the ring-leader of the soon coming tribulation period. They will be hugely responsible for many people landing in the tribulation, who otherwise would not have. The world won’t suddenly have another voice in the tribulation.
The media will be right there as the ●wrath of man, ● the wrath of the Lamb, ● the wrath of nature, and ●the wrath of God are all poured out in seven years, which will see upwards of four billion people killed.
Individuals within the mass-media can come out and get saved, but they will have an enormous amount of forsaking to do if they want to get into God’s ways.
Most, especially today, are controlled and dominated by powerful Jezebel spirits and spirits of control. They are fully cursed.
Those of the mass-media who do not repent and come out of their idolatry will have a special severe place in hell.
Zephaniah 1:17 “I will bring distress upon men, and they shall walk like blind men, because they sinned against the Lord; their blood shall be poured out like dust, and their flesh like refuse.”
The mass-media want to be your discernment and want you to give over your gift of discernment to them. These are normally Jezebels, controllers, and people with seriously disturbed character traits. If you can see the devil lurking behind the mass-media in all its forms, you have gone a long way, and are well on the road to safety in these days.
Beware of any form of ministry that comes with sensationalism, manipulation, sales gimmicks, eye-catching claims, and the like. Things like, “you have to see this,” “It’s 100% for sure,” God told me in an audible voice”, “this will change you forever,” “Are you serious” and the like. This is all cheap manipulation to get you to “buy” into them.
The role of godly media is to use information and instruction wisely under the leading of the Holy Spirit. It is to create awareness, offer counsel, teaching, enlightenment, illumination, and guidance. It is to warn, rebuke correct and encourage.
It is to reflect the living God and His words and ways.
●John 14:29 “Now I have told you before it comes, that when it does come to pass you may believe.”
My friends, the media plays a far greater role in your life than you imagine. Be discerning, be selective, judge rightly, keep your spiritual armour in place and above all grow in your knowledge of God and His word, by His Spirit.
Global, worldly morality has as its idol the rights of the modern, new human. Its evil virtues and values are founded, written, spoken and inspired by the unholy mass-media. The media is the “Bible” of the globalist. It speaks its moral sin to its subjects, who impute authority to it.
They defend it and justify it all – all the time.
●Often to fight evil is more difficult than walking in truth. It’s easy to go with the flow and sometimes difficult to stand against the flow...but we must.

Shalom and grow in His Grace!
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!
