|This ministry has a distinct kingdom, Messianic vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for the Jewish people and the church. My position is pre-trib! Personally: I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share these great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God.|

Exodus 19:5-6 “If you (Israel) will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine. And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation...”
Amos 9:15 “I will plant them (Israel) in their land, and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord God.”
Isaiah 41:11 “Behold all those who were incensed against you (Israel) shall be ashamed and disgraced; they shall be as nothing, and those who strive with you shall perish.”
Isaiah 44:18 “They do not know nor understand; for He has shut their eyes so they cannot see, and their hearts so they cannot understand.”
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah and to identify the rift, and the needed restoration. There is much in the church that needs to change before it can be fully reconciled with the Jew. Likewise, changes in Jewish thinking are also needed.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
The tree-huggers delight:
The Bible uses plants, trees, colours, animals, birds, numbers and more to describe people and nations. It is the subliminal symbols that are of great significance and meaning, especially in relation to Israel.
Did you realise that the entire course of Israel’s history is plotted in the trees? There is much more to these symbols and metaphors - for another time.
Here are some amazing messages blowing in the wind, relating to Israel.
►The Olive tree: (Romans 11)
These trees have very deep, well established roots. They are sometimes called eternal trees, because they are so hardy; they live for many thousands of years. An ancient olive tree appears to die, but then miraculously, new shoots appear out of the dead wood continuing its existence.
The olive tree produces a rich olive oil which has numerous uses, but is also a type of the Holy Spirit. Olive oil is required to keep the temple menorah flames burning. This symbolises light. Olive tree leaves are symbols of peace. Remember the dove bringing back an olive branch to the ark after the flood of judgement.
The root of the olive tree is symbolic of God Himself. The root is called, “holy.”
Biblically, there are two olive trees of importance. The natural olive tree, is symbolic of Israel, and the wild olive tree, is symbolic of the church. The wild olive branch was “grafted” into the natural olive tree, thus partaking of the goodness of the root.
The national emblem of Israel includes two olive branches.
An ancient olive tree grove:
►The Fig tree:
The fig tree is symbolic of spiritual fruitfulness after severe pruning or judgement. It relates to Israel in the tribulation period, awakening to spiritual life.
The fig tree is unique in that its blossoms appear before the leaves. It should have fruit appearing before the leaves. This is why our Lord cursed the unfruitful fig tree, causing it to die. The root was not destroyed though, and a new tree full of fruit, is about to appear.
When the disciples asked out Lord what would be the sign of His coming, He listed a number of judgements to fall on the world. But one of these was the sign of the fig tree.
Matthew 24:32-34 “learn the parable of the fig tree: When is branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that the summer is near. So also you when you see all these things, know that it is near, even at the very doors. Assuredly, I say to you, ‘this generation (of Jews) will be no means pass away till all these things are fulfilled.’”
Present day Zionism and the awakening of the Jews, as well as modern anti-Semitism are signs of the fig tree putting forth leaves and about to produce much spiritual fruit.
►The Almond tree:
The almond is the first tree to flower in its season, which at the end of winter. The flower has five petals to it, five being the number of grace. The temple menorah, a symbol of light, has oil cups or containers in the shape of almond flowers.
The Hebrew word for “almond” is “shakeid” which also means to “awake” and “watch”.
The almond is symbolic of Messiah’s resurrection. It speaks of the supernatural power of God as seen in Aaron’s almond branch that budded in one day. (Numbers 17:8)
Jeremiah 1:11-14 “The word of the Lord came to me saying, ‘Jeremiah, what do you see?’ I said, ‘I see the branch of an almond tree.’ Then the Lord said, ‘you have seen well for I am about to perform My word.’ And the word of the Lord came to me a second time, saying, ‘what do you see? And I said, a boiling pot and it is facing away from the north.’ Then the Lord said to me: ‘Out of the north calamity shall break forth on all the inhabitants of the land.’”
The message here is that as the almond (Israel) flowers and buds she will be plunged into the tribulation period.
Jeremiah 31:28 “It shall come to pass that as I have watched over them to pluck up, to break down, to throw down, to destroy and to afflict them, so I will watch over them to build and plant says the Lord. In those days they shall say no more, ‘The fathers have eaten sour grapes...’”
Psalm 80:8-9 “You have brought a vine out of Egypt, You have cast out the nations and planted it. You prepared room for it, and caused it to take deep root and it filled the land.”
This vine, Israel, is described as “the choicest vine.” But it is a vine that also has within it a “winepress.” (Isaiah 5:1-2) The “winepress” speaks of the crushing tribulation to come!
God planted Israel as a “noble vine” of the highest quality, yet it became an alien, degenerate vine. This speaks of Israel's rebellion to Messiah. (Jeremiah 2:21)
As with the olive and the fig tree, the vine will bear its good fruit in its time, which is just around the corner!
►Other trees symbolic of Israel:
Joel 1:12 (Context: Israel is invaded in the tribulation period) “The vine has dried up and the fig tree has withered; and the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the apple tree. All the trees of the field have withered. Surely joy has withered away from the sons of men.
But we know that Israel's story does not end in the tribulation. Joy will return.
The Cedar: Symbol of power, royalty and majesty. The Oak: Symbol of strength and stability. The Palm: Symbol of military victory and victory in Messiah. The Pomegranate: Symbol of abundance and joyfulness. The Acacia: Symbol of beauty. The Myrtle: Symbol of God’s favour and blessing.
The grand summary:
Israel is: Deeply rooted in God with an eternal future. Israel contains the light-producing oil of the Spirit of God and soon will be Messiah’s light of the world! Israel will be at peace soon. The church is a “wild” family member of Israel through our joint root in God. Israel will become fully fruitful after pruning. Israel’s ripening fruit is a sign of Messiah’s coming. Israel will bud and come to life supernaturally in a day and then bring the light of salvation to the Gentile world. Israel will go through the winepress of tribulation, be attacked from the north and fall under calamity, because she was the choicest, noble vine and yet gave herself to paganism. (Baal) Finally Israel will fulfil God’s call and plan in power, majesty and strength, abundance, and blessing.
All of this is revealed in the nature of this forest of trees, and the corresponding Bible verses. How can you not be a tree-hugger!
Edition 465: April 16th 2019
The Court of the ages:
These are words of life!
These are the issues of eternal life. You will face them soon, like it or not. It is wise to know what’s coming, why, when and what you must do now to prepare!
This edition is primarily aimed at those in authority in various forms. That would be for political leaders down to leaders of their own family and even to you as leader of your own life. There is great responsibility in leadership and authority. We will be judged accordingly.
The Court of the ages: In the dock are all Presidents, Prime Ministers, Kings, Queens and all in governmental authority. In the dock are all the lawyers and judges of the world’s courts. In the dock is the mass-media of the world and all celebrities and entertainers. In the dock is everyone with influential authority – you too!
In the Judges seat is the King of kings and Lord of lords, and Judge of judges.
Daniel 7:9-10 “The Ancient of Days was seated. His garment was white as snow, and His hair was like pure wool. His throne was a fiery flame, its wheels a burning fire. A fiery stream came forth before Him. A thousand thousands ministered to Him; ten thousand times ten thousand, stood before Him. The court was seated, and the books were opened.”
Imagine the horror of getting to the end of your Christian life and discovering that you were in a race all along. Not so much against others but against yourself, and that there were huge rewards laid up for you, which no one had even told you about!
The Courts of God:
The Bible speaks of a number of courts of God, which each have eternal outcomes. The Bible also identifies a number of God’s record books.
Here are some of God’s record books and the things contained therein:
●Your physical features before you were even born. (Psalm 139:16) ●The number of the hairs on your head. (Matthew 10:30) ●All your tears. (Psalm 56:8) ●God’s plans for you. (Psalm 139:17) ●Every thought of man. (Psalm 139:2, Hebrews 4:12) ●Every word you have spoken. (Matthew 12:36) ●Everyone’s works. (Revelation 20:12) ●Your godly works and loves. (Hebrews 6:10, 1 Corinthians 3:14-15) ●Your life’s priorities. (Matthew 6:20) ●Those who have nurtured and developed the fear of God. (Malachi 3:16)
Unlike worldly courts, these will contain perfect judgements - absolutely pure and true. There will be no defence team in these courts, because the Judge will be all knowing! Those who have the work of the cross in their lives will be proclaimed – not guilty of all sin.
All humans are equal in that we are born of sinful Adam. Only true believers have the potential within them, through the new-birth to escape that anchor, and be set free. But the believer still has to work internal salvation to the outside, through correct application of the things of God.
If you commit a great crime and you get away with it for years and years, you may feel invincible. But don’t be fooled, you will stand before the all-knowing, all-seeing Judge of all. At the end of the day, no one gets away with anything, except true born-again Christians! We get away with everything – free, and no price to pay for all our sin!
People go to incredible lengths to justify themselves and cover their sins and lies. They see things only from their own perspective, but God sees even your thoughts and motivations.
In our lives, as Christians, we have to work out perfect inner salvation through to the outside. This begins even in our thoughts!
Some thoughts on thoughts:
“My thoughts are not your thoughts, says the Lord”. (Isaiah 55:8-9) “The thoughts that I have towards you are only good”. (Jeremiah 29:11) “Guard your thoughts”. (Proverbs 4:23) “Take every thought captive and cast down imaginations that exalt against God”. (2 Corinthians 10:5) “Think on these things”...All good and true! (Philippians 4:8)
Beware who you compare yourselves with, and who you aspire to in your thought life. The true Christian is to measure himself by the word of truth, its fruits and blessings. Not by the world, the church, modern man. This produces endless curses.
Proverbs 21:2 “Every way of man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the hearts.”
Proverbs 14:12 “There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is the way of destruction.”
Here’s a very short sweet extremely powerful verse for you. Put it into practise. (I have done so ages ago and renew it often – and it works wonders!)
Job 31:1 “I have made a covenant with my eyes; why then should I look upon a woman (with lust).” (Proverbs 4:25) Obviously this applies to men and women.
Make a covenant and decree with your eyes! By obvious extension, that would include your ears and your thought life. Don’t let your thoughts become a runaway train – it will crash!
This involves you become a strange oddball in the world’s eyes, but a dear, close, good, best friend forever, of the living God.
Let the Spirit of the Lord be your primary instructor:
The media’s men are Satan’s yes men. Hitler could tell you about that! In fact the mass-media are under the same control-spirits as Hitler, just in civilian clothes.
People put their leaders on a pedestal. They give their thoughts and lives to political leaders. They elevate them, just like gods, and it infuses into their psyche and culture.
As a true born-again, Spirit-filled Christian in these days, you need to consciously separate yourself from the spirit of the world, the counterfeit church, and the demonic. You must actively throw off your close identity with the world and its traditions and ways.
The world’s traditions are rooted in error, or the occult. You can’t feed and eat error, and stay spiritually healthy. Being released from it, releases you from invisible curses, and weights.
Applied truth changes you dramatically, making you strangely fireproof! Even as you step into eternity and your unforgiving works are hit by the fire of God’s judgement at the Judgement Seat of Messiah, it quickly dissipates into a puff of smoke! (1 Corinthians 3:14-15)
The importance of knowledge of true history is absolutely vital. Your history is the anchor and foundation of your culture and traditions. Some things within it are fine, others not.
Culture and worship are directly associated, make sure that the Spirit of God enlightens you as to what you may accept and what you must cast out! This is all dramatically important.
Proverbs 5:21-23 “The ways of a man are before the eyes of the Lord, and He ponders all His paths. His own iniquities entrap the wicked man, and he is caught in the cords of his sin. He shall die for lack of instruction, and for the greatness of his folly, he shall go astray.”
Reject Gods wise counsel, and the world will rule you:
I have included the mass-media in this section, because they are the voice of the world and its leaders. They are the voice of their ultimate leader – Satan:
●“The ruler of this world.” (Satan) (John 12:31) ●”The prince of the power of the air.” (Satan). (Ephesians 2:2) ●“The god of this world.” (Satan) (2 Corinthians 4:4). ●“The whole world is in the power of the evil one”. (1 John 5:19)
The media speaks many voices: ●Feeling – the feel-good voice of the body. ●Reason – the voice of “it seems right to me, it must be.” ●Conscience – the modern, variable voice of godlessness. ●Democracy - the collective voice of the masses.
The world and its god will not determine your destiny unless you turn away from the Lord. Hope in the future is in the heart of man. But what a futile hope it is when it is in the world.
Counterfeit Christianity perpetrated by the mass-media must be inoffensive, and cross-less, so that it can easily mix with other religions, rather than be separate.
Deception in all these things is at plague-level. It causes tunnel vision. You can only see your own stupid, cursed hobby-horse and its insane godless riders of demented destruction.
The judgement on the world’s leaders:
I don’t want to add any commentary to these profoundly important verses below. Just read them, simply as they are, taking specific note of the bold sections.
Proverbs 29:12 “If a ruler pays attention to lies, all his servants become wicked.”
Isaiah 14:9 “Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming; it stirs up the dead for you. All the chief ones (leaders) of the earth it has raised up from their thrones. All the kings of the nations shall speak and say, ‘Have you become like us?”
Isaiah 5:14 “Hell has enlarged itself and opened its mouth beyond measure; their glory (leaders)and their multitude and their pomp, and he who is jubilant, shall descend into it.”
Ezekiel 32:21 “The strong among the mighty shall speak to him out of the midst of hell...”
Psalm 110:6 “He shall judge among the nations, He shall fill the places with dead bodies. He shall execute the heads of many nations.”
Psalm 146:3 “Do not put your trust in princes (political leaders)...”
Isaiah 40:23 “He brings the princes to nothing; He makes the judges of the earth useless.”
Revelation 6:15-17 “The kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said the mountains and rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb, for the Day is great and who is able to stand?’”
The judgement upon Christian leaders:
1 Peter 4:17 “The time has come that judgement must begin in the house of God.”
James 3:1 “Let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we will receive a stricter judgment.”
Jeremiah 23:1-4 “Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture, says the Lord...I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all the countries where I have driven them and bring them back to their folds, and they shall be fruitful and increase. I will set up shepherds over them who will feed them; and they shall fear no more...”
Revelation 2:2 “I know your works, your labour and your patience, and you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who call themselves apostles and are not, and have found them to be liars.”
The court of great reward:
The judgment seat of Messiah is the grand court-room in which all believers (no unbelievers) appear before our Lord for eternal rewards. Everyone who appears in this court for judgement is already pure and perfect through the salvation of the cross.
All unbelievers appear at the Great White Throne Judgement, where there will be no believers. (Revelation 20:11-15)
This is a court for the exclusive issuing of eternal reward for works done in response to the call of God in the believer’s life.
This glorious court sees our majestic King of glory, enthroned and awarding spectacular rewards to perfect people! Oh yes, my friend, don’t let anyone tell you, that as a believer you are not perfect, through the work of the cross!
Hebrews 12:23 “To the general assembly of the church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the just Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect.”
2 Corinthians 10:17-18 “Let him who glories, glory in the Lord. It is not he who commends himself who is approved -but whom the Lord commends (judges).”
1 Corinthians 3:11-15 “If anyone builds on this foundation (Yeshua) with gold silver precious stones, wood, hay, straw, his work will become manifest in the Day. It will revealed by fire and the fire will test the quality. If anyone’s work endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss, but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.”
1 Corinthians 15:41-42 “There is one glory of the sun, another of the moon and another of the stars; for one star differs from another in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead...”
Daniel 12:3 “Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever.”
Do you think you will be rewarded for answering and obeying the devil’s call on you, and the call of the world and the media? Think again, buddy – and start crying!
Thieves of your reward:
These days you have to hunt far and wide for anything in the news media that is based on truth. The mass-media today are all totally blindly biased, and driven by a monkey on their back named Satan, with a frog in their throats named Diabolical Devil.
Deuteronomy 27:18 “Cursed is he who makes the blind to wander out of the way of God.”
Isaiah 9:16 “The leaders of this people cause them to err, and those who are led by them are destroyed.”
The mass-media are spiritually charged with the evil plans of their god and they don’t know it, nor can see it, but make no mistake – spirits are using them! They will lead you to miss God’s mark!
Even the compromised, sickly sweet church and its hordes of the deceived, will lead you to miss God’s mark for you!
Ezekiel 22:26 “Her priests have violated My law and profaned My holy things. They have not distinguished between the holy and the unholy, nor have they made known the difference between the unclean and the clean...”
Today we are in a world which neutralises right and wrong! If they can’t bring down your salvation, they will have their best shot at bringing down and neutralising your eternal reward state.
Throw them out of your lives.
The primary job of the mass-media, being the voice of the world, is to get rid of and devalue the pure, unadulterated truth of the Bible and replace it with the counterfeit lie of false, Christianity – that of “another Jesus.”
You must see the world as a ticking time bomb! If you don’t see it, you will befriend a big bomb, that will blow more than your head off.
The world is its own wrecking ball, with all its leaders swinging it like giant fools.
The US Democratic Party has become its own wrecking ball, as has the British Labour Party, and the EU, and the New Zealand government. The issue is that when God swings the wrecking ball, pop goes all the wacko weasels!
John 9:39 “For judgement I have come into this world.”
Isaiah 1:4 “Alas sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a brood of evil doers...They have forsaken and turned away from the Lord.”
Proverbs 29:16 “When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increases, but the righteous will see their fall.”
Did you know that there are some indications that saved, rewarded believers in heaven will witness in some way, the Great White Throne Judgement of all unbelievers? That’s a frightening thought! Imagine witnessing someone you have loved, but who remained unsaved, being cast into hell! – Yikes!
Judgement is the big comeuppance, the just punishment and retribution of those who reject His mercy and grace. It is the final merciless blow with hell to pay – and they will!
The world deemed fit to banish the Judge of all judges and in His place has come the god known as the one who comes to kill, steal, destroy, lie and deceive!
Here is the reward of the unsaved:
Romans 2:5 “In accordance with your hard and impenitent heart, you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgement of God.”
Psalm 9:8 “He shall judge the world in righteousness, He shall administer judgement for the peoples in uprightness.”
Psalm 9:19 “Arise O Lord, do not let man prevail; let the nations be judged in Your light.”
Know this: Don’t ever become blasé or apathetic about judgement. It is all part of righteousness and holiness. It is to be revered, feared, respected and honoured.
It is something we as believers have been through once for salvation, and will go through once for reward, and then never again.
An often heard criticism of Bible prophecy is that it puts fear in people. You can get rid of fear in your life now and live in ostrich land, but great, real fear will come your way soon.
I’ll chose the fear and terror of the Lord now, and be safe later!
Everyone will believe the Bible at judgement day, as they bow the knee to Messiah – too late for the unsaved! Too late for most – too late, too late!
World peace, like peace in your own life, is only possible with Satan, sin and evil removed, and that is only possible through the cross of Calvary and the application of it as you take up your own cross daily.
Colossians 3:23-24 “Whatever you do, do it heartily, as so to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord.”
How absolutely wonderful to go forward to glory with abundant confidence, hope, and anticipation! How wonderful to know that all our sins are forever gone and how wonderful to know that such great reward is laid up for the enduring believer!
I took the background picture of the Augrabies Falls, texturised a leaf and stuck in the flower.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 464: April 9th 2019
A world de-wormed:
These are words of life!
Babies have to be de-wormed sometimes, and so do dogs.
Psalm 22: 6-7 “I (the Lord) am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men and despised of the people. All those who see Me laugh Me to scorn...”
The word “worm” in the verse above is the original word “towla.” It is a specific worm found in the Middle East. In pupa from it clings to a tree and as it dies on the tree, it turns pure white. It was also used to dye very expensive cloth, a unique, rich crimson colour which oozed from it when crushed.
As you see this is no ordinary worm! Psalm 22 above is rich with descriptions of the crucifixion of our Lord, and these details of the “towla’ are pretty spectacular in type!
Yeshua, our Lord died for and paid for the sins of the world on the cross. (1 John 2:2) The unsaved world has to actively receive it for it to become personal salvation. But the price was paid for all.
There is a degree of rub-off in a nation relating to how much of the things of God they allow into society. This causes them to be a nation under God or not.
►You don’t want to de-worm the world of this worm, tuned King of kings!
De-worming the world of this worm is de-wording the world!
Hebrews 10:29 “How much worse punishment do you suppose will be for him who thought it worthy to trample the Son of God underfoot, and who counted the blood of the covenant a common thing and insulted the Spirit of grace?”
Isaiah 59:4-10 “No one calls for justice, nor does any plead for truth. They trust in empty words and speak lies to conceive evil and bring forth iniquity...They hatch viper’s eggs and he who eats them dies...Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they have not known...They have made themselves crooked paths, where there is no peace...Therefore they look for light but there is darkness for brightness, they walk in blackness...as dead men in desolate places.”
Isaiah 59:14 “...The truth is fallen in the street and cannot enter.”
Isaiah 5:20-23 “Woe to those who put good for evil and evil for good; who put darkness for light and light for darkness...Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes...Who justify the wicked for a bribe, and take away justice for the righteous man.”
Isaiah 10:1 “Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees, who write misfortune, which they have prescribed, themselves.”
Jeremiah 7:28 “You shall say to them, ‘This is the nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God nor receive correction. Truth has perished and been cut off from their mouth.’”
These verses above, when strung together, paint a terrible picture. It is a picture of the entirety of today’s world stripped of the things of God! How accurate the Bible is!
Remember my verse for the year: “When you forsake the word, you praise the wicked!”
Prophecy spells it all out:
Bible prophecy is thrilling. It takes you on a wonderful journey to great glory. It speaks now about now, and the near, and the distant future. It warns rebukes, encourages, strengthens, guides and sets the heart of man on fire, giving great, valuable wisdom. Without it you are thin ice!
The stupid, intellectual elite in the nations of the world have tried hard to remove the word of God from society and public life. It is the main gospel message of salvation that is under attack, simply because the god of this world does not want people getting saved and leaving his evil kingdom.
But it is also Bible prophecy that the devil’s world hates, because it plots the course of all things, including the demise of the devil, sin, evil and all enemies of God. It gives light and sight and shows what to avoid, and where to go, and what is coming and when.
Bible prophecy spells out the failure of man to save himself, and bring world peace to the planet in turmoil. (Revelation 12:12)
Bible prophecy gives us hope, sustains us, motivates us and fills our lives with purpose.
I expect that very soon we will see “multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision” because of the great shaking that is beginning now. (Joel 3:14)
Yes, many will remain blind and many will become outright enemies of God and His people, but exiting times are here!
As the turmoil in the world grows, you can grow in turmoil too, or you can see the world as “crucified to you”, and let it grow strangely dim as you grow brighter.
We lose interest in the world when we see that it is dead. It too loses interest in us when it sees us as crucified with Messiah. (Galatians 2:20)
Only those in darkness continue to live according to self and self’s reasoning in this world.
Do you think you will be rewarded in eternity for living for yourself? You have no chance!
One of the greatest terrors for the unsaved is that God knows their future. He knows exactly who will turn to Him for salvation and who will not!
Be careful of agreement with the world’s god and its voice, the media! There is unseen power in unity and agreement. (Genesis 11:6) The agreement of silence on many of the world’s major issues by much of the church, demonstrates spinelessness, but it does not exonerate it from blame.
Agreement with the world in many respects is agreement with hell.
The world is preparing its own destruction:
How to send the world the hell: Make them stupid. The word of God makes you wise. So, remove it and you become stupid, even as an intellectual. Perhaps you don’t know it, but clever, unsaved people go to hell, with clever, unsaved kings and those in authority.
Remove sin, even in word, and there is no need for a Saviour. What do you need to be saved from? The world thinks that they are okay and because human rights have been elevated above God, almost anything is acceptable.
Trying to make truth fit our modern culture is a minefield. You can’t do it. One has to give!
The light of the world and of Israel:
The world’s light is growing strangely dim as more and more of it is extinguished by society at large.
The light of the believer will never go out, and the light of Israel is about to be turned on brighter than ever!
Isaiah 62:1 “For Zion’s sake I will not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her righteousness goes forth like brightness and her salvation as a lamp that burns.”
Isaiah 42:16 “I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known, I will make darkness light before them and crooked places straight.”
Micah 7:8-9 “Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; when I fall I will arise, when I sit in darkness the Lord will be a light to me...He will bring me forth to the light, and I will see His righteousness.
Proverbs 4:18-19 “The path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day. The way of the wicked is like darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble.”
►I have constructed the following sentence purely from Bible verses strung together:●With God removed, the world praises the wicked. ●When there is no knowledge of God in the land, there is no more restraint and the land mourns. ●From the wicked their light is withheld. ●There is no peace for the wicked. ●The intensions of the heart of man are all deceitful and wicked. ●The world stumbles ahead in blindness. ●There is no more horror at the wickedness of the wicked.
The myth of man:
The myth of man is that he can save and manage himself! His own ways are manifest in the fruits of modern unsaved man. They are all the fruits of the law of sin and death. The fruits of Satan are “killing, stealing, destroying, lying and deceiving.”
The myth of man is a mystery. (2 Thessalonians 2:7) You can only see the mystery, when in Him!
People always look for acceptance and affirmation. They look inwardly and find only turmoil within. That is because fallen man is one with Satan in spirit. But when the true, practising Christian looks inwardly he finds the God of love who has accepted him through the forgiveness of the cross.
The problem for the unsaved is that they can search as deeply into themselves for answers as they like, but will always end up finding the deceiver. They can look outwardly to all sources in the world and will always find the deception of the deceiver, the god of the world.
The Bible believing Christian looks inwardly and finds our Lord enthroned on his life. He looks upward and finds all the glories of the kingdom of God.
Unsaved man cannot even see the kingdom of God. (John 3:3)
The myth of humanism says man is inherently good. If so the world would be a better place! If so, sin would be good, because sin resides in the heart of man. If so, man would be able to get better by looking internally to cure his psychological stress and anxiety.
►Secular psychology prescribes pills to get psychologically better! God prescribes the cross of Calvary, His word and repentance for all sin.
We need our living Saviour and His living doctrine to know and see sin and righteousness.
God’s anger at sin fell upon Yeshua on the cross. If you remove the cross, God’s anger must fall on you! David said: “Against You alone have I sinned.” (Psalm 51:4) Remove “You” and sin must fall upon you without “You” of Calvary as Saviour.
Why socialism is godless?
As the god of the world, de-worms the world and eliminates the things of God from society, a sick, diseased world full of maggots comes in. A new world order called humanistic socialism comes in.
The goal of socialism is control and domination. Socialism violates the laws of liberty and freedom. It also violates the law of sowing and reaping. Always bear in mind that the end result of Satan’s control, is to deliver you to hell.
Socialism in its various forms is man’s best effort to save himself .It replaces freedom with equality. It ‘elevates’ man to the lowest common denominator. It makes man a god, blind to god and God.
People have a built in need to be to be dependent on something, some system or someone. Socialism creates this dependence.
Internationalism, globalism and socialism (all linked) brings everyone down under the spirit of Satan and sin. God lifts us to the highest and seats us in heavenly places, holy, righteous and making us pure.
Religion without the true, living God is a dead, cursed, mechanism of control and domination, just what socialism needs.
Why would Satan be pro the interfaith movement as part of his one-world order? Every religion in the world can quite easily unite, except for the true born-again, blood-washed and cross-forgiven Christian. They are exclusive and forever separate from all religions.
Many “Christian” religions with the cross sidelined, can easily fit in with all religions. They are all counterfeits and born of Satan in the first place. They are his puppets. When they come together, they form a united front, which is easy for the devil to control.
Many churches are enemies of the cross. (Philippians 3:18)
A godless world in psychological turmoil:
Most people are feelings orientated and never go to the root of their problems. Psychologists are forever dealing with feelings (fruits) and the world’s opinions.
The self-life camouflages the sin-nature which is in its heart. It hides the enemy within.
►If you can’t see God because He has been removed from society, you can’t see the enemy either!
When you forsake the law of God, (His word) you are a law unto yourself and “yourself” is actually full of the law of sin and death, so how can you even see your problem, never mind fix it!
Pure unadulterated truth will corner you and then bring you down to your knees; then it will fill you with God and lift you up high, to the very throne of God. Have you been cornered and floored by God?
The problem of modern society is that it has been de-wormed and de-worded. It has stabbed itself in both eyes, and shot itself in both feet, and then in the head!
When you remove God from society, you also remove the very conscience of society. Have you notice the gradual change? There was once a time when people would fear getting caught in some sin or crime. Now, there is no more shame anymore!
It is primarily the liberal left and intellectual elite that have cast down the word of God in the nations and destroyed the virtues of God. Did you know that there were no liberal lefties in God’s workers?
The liberal left worldwide, US Democratic Party, British Labour Party, and others, together with their umbilicaly connected mess-media, have shot themselves in the foot for one big reason: They have underestimated how many Christians there are in their lands, with godly influence.
►They have not realised that you can’t kill God or His word! They will be devoured by the Lion of all lions! They think this Lion is a little harmless worm, or a fairy with a gruff voice!
The reality of the saved, righteous man is evident in his fruits, which are the fruits of the Spirit of life in Him. These godly fruits rub off and transmit into society and into a nation under God.
Today left wing and right wing politics are becoming polarised. They are both of the spirit of the world! Personally, I’m not a left winger, right winger or middle winger, I’m a God winger! That’s where the good fruits are.
We are to take every thought captive. (2 Corinthians 10:5) That is freedom and victory. And let me tell you something: It is not difficult to radically change your thinking.
Unity with the ungodly is easy - just cast down the word of God and your turmoil will begin. Once we die, or the Lord comes, we can’t go back and change things. Our eternal destiny is set, signed, sealed and delivered! Don’t underestimate the gravity of that!
If our Lord does not come first, we will all croak, (that does not mean standing in a corner making a noise like a frog.) We are getting older and hopefully wiser, but we will not go on forever in this life! Every day we live, we live for the potential to add height and stature to our eternal status.
Many years ago, I used to be a skydiver having great fun jumping out of aeroplanes. Now when I pull into a parking lot and jump out of my car and remain in the upright position – I have done well, and have more time to glorify our Lord.
Eliminating God’s influence from your life is the worst, most dangerous thing you could ever do. It may give you a fools euphoria and exuberance on your way to hell.
►I have put together the following two sections. They are pure verses with no commentary. It is very good to read them just as they are, one after the next, because they paint a very clear picture:
The nature of the World: ●It has a spirit. (1Corinthians 2:12) ●It cannot receive the Spirit of truth. (John 14:7) ●Its works are evil. (John 7:7) ●It lies entirely under the power of the devil. (1 John 5:19) ●It hates Messiah and Christians. (John 15:18) ●It is at enmity with God. (James 4:4) ●It is filled with tribulations. (John 16:33) ●It lives but is dead. (1Timothy 5:6) ●It is full of corruption. (2 Peter 1:4) ●It has a doomed philosophy and traditions. (Colossians 2:8) ●The world does not know us. (1 John 3:1) ●It is on course. (Ephesians 2:2) ●Its wisdom is foolishness. (1Corinthians 3:19) ●It has been judged. (John 12:31) ●As you gain the world, you lose your soul. (Matthew 16:26) ●The world is crucified to us. (Galatians 6:14)
Our response to the world: ●We receive not the spirit of the world. (1 Corinthians 2:12) ●We overcome the world. (1John 5:4) ●We escape the world’s corruption. (2 Peter 1:4) ●We love not the world, nor its things. (1John2:15) ●We hate our lives in the world. (John 12:25) ●We are in the world but not of it. (John 17:14) ●We have no friendship with it. (James 4:4) ●We live as exiles in the world. (1 Peter 2:11) ●Greater is He in us than he in the world. (1 John 4:4) ●We use the world, but do not abuse it. (1 Corinthians 7:31) ●We are not conformed to the world. (Romans 12:2) ●We pray not for the world. (John 17:9) ●For God so loved the world that He sent His Son. Salvation must be received or hell awaits; as revealed. (John 3:16-19)
I received an email from a reader recently. She said that she was “so done with the world.”
We are seeing the great push back of the ways of God like never before. The world, to its own terrible detriment, is de-worming itself of the Worm (Towla) of all life and filling itself with dirty rotten maggots of death and defeat.
Psalm 73:6 “Pride serves as their necklace; violence covers them like a garment.”
God is not going to save and redeem this world. We are called to come out of it because it is soon going to be destroyed in judgement – just like Lot had to get out.
We are to judge ourselves now so that we will not be judged or condemned with the world.
I took the background picture in the Mnweni region of the Drakensberg Mountains from a chopper and the black egret and merged them. (Mnweni means, “place of needles.”)
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 463: April 2nd 2019
Golan, Gaza and more.
These are words of life!
The Golan Heights, Gaza, the status of Jerusalem, the West Bank, Hezbollah, Hamas, Iran, Syria, Turkey and Russia are all on the stage at the moment. Some are still emerging from the sidelines, but it’s all coming to a head right now. Age-old prophecies are all lining up.
Those who don’t know Bible prophecy and those who scoff at, and mock it, are in the dark. They don’t see the significance in any of these things. It’s just like any old normal, blind day to them.
President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu have brought these to the fore, and amazingly, it’s all spelt out in Bible prophecy in detail, including the timing of soon-coming dramatic conflicts.
In this edition I want to reveal some amazing, little-known Bible prophecies about these things.
I’m not a military man, and you would know that The Prophetic Scroll (TPS) does not centre on the military as such. But for some odd reason, according to emails, many military top brass including generals are regular readers of TPS. I don’t know if they are all saved, but I do know that some are.
The issue is this. If you are a leader of a military force, you can go into your secret place and plan things your own way. Or you can study all the very public strategies of God, and His enemy, and then go into His secret place to get the finer details! Know this: That is the way it will go, like it or not.
How good it must be as a military strategist to know the end from the beginning and to know who wins and loses, and even to know where various battle grounds will be and why. (Isaiah 46:10)
We are now in the time when military preparedness is of utmost importance. So, military personnel and associates - read, study and know these things. You are going to need them very soon! It’s always a good idea to be on the winning side!
After Donald Trump signed a decree recognising Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan, Israel has responded immediately in kind, by granting a Golan Heights oil drilling licence to an American company. For some time now tests in the area have indicated that there are large oil and gas deposits right there. This could be a part of the reason for WW111.
There is something odd about the ancient Persian King – Cyrus. God used him to restore Israel and to restore the temple in Jerusalem. We see Cyrus appearing in a number of verses – prophetically. His doings will be related to the original.
Some say modern day Cyrus is President Trump. I don’t know of anyone else who fits the bill. To me that’s not coincidence! And please don’t give me the garbage that God can’t use Trump because he is not a holy man. Go and look in the mirror – turkey! Yes God can even use turkeys.
By the way, Netanyahu just referred to Trump as a modern Cyrus a few days ago, after the signing of the Golan recognition.
Isaiah 44:28 “He says of Cyrus, he is My shepherd, and he shall perform all My pleasure, even saying to Jerusalem, ‘You shall be built’ and to the temple, ‘Your foundation shall be laid.’”
Isaiah 45:1 “To Cyrus, who’s right hand I have held – to subdue nations before him and loose the armour of kings, to open before him the double doors...”
The destruction of Islam by Israel:
The Bible does not speak of Islam itself, but of the Arab nations, the Palestinians and the enemies of Israel, in the region. They are all Islamic, so, simply by extension when we see the prophesied destruction of these nations / peoples, it includes Islam.
Ezekiel 21:31-32 “I will pour out My indignation on you (God’s enemies); I will blow on you with the fire of My wrath, and deliver you into the hands of brutal men who are skilful to destroy. You shall be fuel for the fire; your blood shall be in the midst of the land (Israel). You shall not be remembered.”
Zechariah 9:13 “I have bent Judah, (Jews) My bow, fitted the bow with Ephraim, and raised up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece, and made you like the sword of a mighty man.”
Greece, in this verse is prophetically speaking of Europe and perhaps certain Arab nations.
The cause of the destruction of Islam and many Arab nations is their own evil heart. They have voiced their major desire for ages – to destroy Israel.
Turkey has just called for the 57 Muslim nations to unite in destroying Israel. Only a few months ago, the leader of the Palestinian Authority said: “The war to destroy Israel has started.” Iran has said numerous times that it wants to “wipe Israel off the map.” They do not mean destroying Israel only. In the capital of Iran there is a large sign saying: “Israel must vanish from the entire world.”
It is true that right now we are seeing some Arab nations beginning to align themselves with Israel. That is a miracle in the making, but also part of prophecy, which I won’t deal with now. (Isaiah 19)
Add to Israel’s enemies, all anti-Semites of the world and all Christians of replacement theology. They are all in God’s firing line!
Who are the occupiers?
Obadiah 1:19-21 “The inhabitants of the south shall possess (Lit=occupy) the mountains of Esau, and the inhabitants of the Philistine lowland...The saviours shall come to Mount Zion to judge the mountains of Esau, and the kingdom shall be the Lord’s.”
Joseph had a Gentile (Egyptian) wife who bore him two sons – Ephraim and Manasseh The name “Ephraim” means: “God has made me fertile.”
Ephraim is often seen as, and refers to the ten tribes of Israel, scattered abroad. By extension, Ephraim is also seen by many to be the Israel-loving church, because Ephraim has a spiritual side.
The failure of Ephraim to remove the Canaanites from the Promised Land as commanded by God, is the very reason for the present day Palestinian problem. It is also the tragic reason the church is filled with Babylon! (Exodus 23:24-25, Judges 1:29, Joshua 16:10.)
Ephraim’s brother Manasseh had the dubious reputation of rebuilding the pagan “high places” of satanic worship in the land of Israel. Again, this speaks of Babylonian, occult practices in the church, like Christmas and Easter.
Hosea 5:5-7 “The pride of Israel testifies to his face; therefore Israel and Ephraim stumble in their iniquity, Judah also stumbles with them...They have dealt treacherously with the Lord, for they have begotten pagan children. Now a new moon shall devour them and all their heritage.”
In the Bible we see the amazing power of God’s forgiveness. Ephraim becomes a major end time work of God, but not Manasseh!
If Ephraim relates to the end-time pro-Israel church, as it does, surprising things are coming. Manasseh may be identified with the anti-Israel end-time church, which by default is pro-Islam’s occupation of Israel.
Jeremiah 31:18 “I have heard Ephraim bemoaning himself after being chastised. Restore me and I will return...Surely after my turning, I repented...”
Ezekiel 37:16-17 “Son of man, take a stick for yourself and write on it: ‘For Judah and the children of Israel, his companions, then take another stick and write on it, ‘for Joseph the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel, his companions.’ Then join them one to another for yourself.” (The “companions” here are the pro-Israel church)
Zechariah 10:6-9 “I will strengthen the house of Judah, and will save the house of Joseph. I will bring them back because I have mercy on them. They shall be as though I had not cast them aside; for I am the Lord their God and I will hear them. Those of Ephraim shall be as a mighty man; and their heart shall rejoice as with wine. Yes the children shall see it and be glad; their heart shall rejoice in the Lord...they will remember Me in the far countries.”
Here now is the incredible thing: Israel is returning to the Lord. Israel will be attacked and suffer greatly. Israel will be used by God to bring salvation to the nations in the tribulation. Israel’s enemies will include a section of the pagan-filled Babylonian (worldly) church.
Who are you dear reader? Are you with us or against us? Make up your mind fast, because your eternal blessing or destruction depends on it. (Luke 11:23)
You will not be required to be God’s battle-axe as Israel will, unless you’re in the army. But you are in the army of our Lord and will and are required to stand with and behind God’s battle-axe – Israel. You will stand with or against God and Israel!
Be careful of ignorance in this day of these things. It will cause you to go the wrong way!
And you, churches of silence on these issues now, filled with the world’s goods. You make much shouting, noise about your prosperity, and you are silent on Israel. You are spineless sell-outs. Be happy now with your stupid Ferrari’s and jets. You have your reward. Go and hug your car.
Ezekiel 7:14 “They have blown the trumpet and made everyone ready, but no one goes to battle; for My wrath is on all their multitude.”
Jeremiah 51:19-20”...Israel is the tribe of His inheritance. The Lord of hosts (armies) is His name. You are My battle-axe and weapons of war; for with you I will break the nations in pieces; with you I will destroy kingdoms.”
- US President Trump moved the US Embassy to Jerusalem, giving it recognition as Israel’s capital. This was done on May 14th 2018, the day of Israel’s declaration of independence in 1948.
- The US recognition of Israel’s sovereignty of the Golan was done on Purim, the festival commemorating the defeat of Israel’s enemies!
Way back in ancient history the Golan Heights were given by God to the tribes of Israel. (Joshua 21:27) Today, Syria claims ownership of the territory, backed by the UN and others.
The US has now recognised the Golan Heights as part of Israel, much to the disgust of most nations, including all of Europe. The Golan Heights are strategic for Israel, being on the Syria border. Both Lebanon and Iran have access to Israel through the region. It has an ancient history of enmity towards Israel.
Did you know the Golan situation is part of major end-time Bible prophecy?
►In Bible times the town of Bashan was the centre of the Golan Heights. (A ruin today) It was under the rule of the Amorite king Og, who was slain by Moses. Og was a giant, like Goliath, known as the “long-necked one”. His name means: “Baked in ashes.”
Ezekiel 39:17-18 “Speak to every sort of bird and beast of the field: ‘Assemble yourselves and come together from all sides for My sacrificial meal on the mountains of Israel, that you may eat flesh and drink blood. You shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth...all the fatlings of Basham. (Golan)”
Isaiah 17 speaks of the war in which Damascus, Syria is totally destroyed. Now we see the Ezekiel 38 & 39 war of Gog & Magog, in which numerous nations led by Russia / Iran will result in fiery destruction, perhaps nuclear. Israel’s enemies end up “baked in ashes!”
Today there is much trouble over the Golan Heights. Hezbollah are in the area on the Syrian side, the Syrian army is right there with Russia behind her and Iran in the picture too.
Does the Bashan / Golan prophecy give us an idea when this will take place? It most certainly does!
Jeremiah 50:19-20 “I will bring back Israel to his habitation, and he shall feed on Carmel and Bashan. (Golan) His soul shall be satisfied on Mount Ephraim and Gilead...At that time the iniquity of Israel shall be sought, but there shall be none...for I will pardon those whom I preserve.
So, in these verses above (and others) we see that Bashan / Golan Heights belongs to Israel at the time of her soon coming salvation.
Ezekiel 36:2-5 “Because the enemy has said of you (Israel), ‘Aha, the ancient heights (Golan) have become our possession.’ Therefore prophecy, and say, thus says the Lord, ‘because they made you desolate, and swallowed you up on every side, so that you became the possession of the rest of the nations, and you are taken up by the lips of the talkers and slandered by the people’ – therefore, O mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord God...Surely I have spoken in My burning jealousy against the rest of the nations and against all Edom (modern Palestinians), who gave My land to themselves as a possession, with whole hearted joy and spiteful, scorning minds, in order to plunder its open country.’” Verse 12 “I will cause men to walk on you. My people Israel, shall take possession of you and you shall be their inheritance...”
Numbers 21:33-35 speaks of the king of Bashan coming down from the Golan Heights to attack the children of Israel, just as they were to enter the Promised Land. God told Moses not to fear them because He had prepared the way for Bashan’s utter defeat, with no one surviving. The children of Israel would then take control of Basham / Golan.
The verse above plays out historically, but has a prophetic double reference and application to these days now and Israel’s entry to the Promised Land of salvation.
This conflict may indicate that Syria will be part of the Ezekiel 38 & 39 war. Whichever way you look at it, all the players are on the field and ready to roll!
►The name of the modern leader of Syria is Bashar Hafez al-Assad. Assad means “Lion.” This family name was originally “Wahsh” meaning “savage.” So putting the two together we get a savage lion – an enemy of the Lion of the tribe of Judah (Jews)
Do you see the modern application? As the Jews prepare to enter their Promised Land of salvation, their enemies gather to attack from the Golan Heights. Syria and her allies will be destroyed.
This points powerfully to this war taking place before, or just as the Jews begin to be saved en masse, which is another indicator of a pre-tribulation rapture. It’s all on the doorstep!
At this time the ancient hatred of Esau for Jacob (Arab / Palestinian hatred for Israel) blasts onto centre stage. Gaza, Samaria (West Bank) and the so-called occupied territories are all ready to explode.
Ezekiel 35:5-6 “Because you 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 shall pursue you.” (See also Ezekiel 25:15-16)
Amos 1:6, 7 “For three transgressions of Gaza and for four I will not turn away its punishment, because they took captive the whole captivity, to deliver them up to Edom. But I will send fire on the wall of Gaza.”
Zechariah 9:5 “Ashkelon shall see it and fear; Gaza also shall be very sorrowful...I will cut off the pride of the Philistines (Palestinians).”
Amos 1:13 “To the people of Ammon (Part of the Palestinians today), I will not turn away its punishment, because they ripped open the women with child in Gilead, that they might enlarge their territory.”
Zephaniah 2:8 “I have heard of the reproach of Moab (Palestinians today) and the reviling of the people of Ammon, with which they have reproached My people, and made arrogant threats against their borders.”
We were here first!
This is the age old chant of the Palestinians relating to Israel. It has become the chant of many stupid nations, and their blinded leaders, thanks to the mass-media and their Hitler-like actions:
Since when is “we were here first” a legitimate argument for ownership of land? What hogwash! What if he land was legitimately sold to another? What if God destroyed the previous owners for His purpose and gave it to another? What if they are all simply, historically wrong?
There were various pagan tribes in the land of Israel before the children of Israel got there. But God’s command was to destroy them and for the children of Israel to occupy the land. That nullifies “We were here first.”
Besides that, Esau, the father of the Arabs and Palestinians by extension, sold his birthright to Jacob (Israel) by way of a legitimate, legal transaction. You can’t sell something and then claim it back because you had it first! God Himself recognised the sale!
“We were here first” in spite of a legal transaction is simply the devils method to force Islam into the entire land and destroy the work of God, as revealed in the verses in this edition.
It’s a numbers game. There are more Islamic Muslims all around Israel than Jews. If the land of Israel, by so-called right of return, and the inclusion of the so-called occupied territories was opened to all, Islam would be in the majority. Do you think God is going to allow that and allow Islam to crush His plans? Some idiot wolves in pulpits believe that!
This is all one of the reasons for the greatest conflicts the world has ever seen – about to break and begin in our day!
This is not an issue of modern style democracy, or what you think, or I think, or any nation thinks. It’s all a God issue and it will work out His way, like it or not. Personally, I like it!
Again, as said many times, I and The Prophetic Scroll stand with and for the Lord and His plan for Israel and against God’s enemies in and out of the church.
I took the background picture in the Drakensberg Mountains and the elephant in the Etosha Game Reserve and mixed them together.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 462: March 26th 2019
The deal of the ages:
These are words of life!
You are of enormous eternal value – potentially!
As the world races off faster and faster to its doom, stress, anxiety and all their offshoots are also racing ahead. The world is trying very hard to rescue the world! That’s like trying to lift yourself up by your shoelaces! You just can’t do it.
The “Deal of the Century” will be the world’s attempt to bring peace to the Middle East, the world’s way, but in the heart of the deal is Satan enshrined, enthroned, but camouflaged.
But the deal of the ages is another story!
Many Christians ignore Bible prophecy to their detriment. Many have been led that way by wolves in pulpits, and many have themselves to blame, being weakened by their neglect.
Most people live for themselves and their home – this world, and have no idea about eternity.
Many worldly Christians are not interested in the things of God. In fact if our Lord was here now in the flesh, they would reject Him for obstructing their fun in the sun. They would choose the criminal, Barabbas again!
Many are pursuing, the ways of Barabbas and his fruits! You can cast down the word of God in the street, or see it as your necessary food, to eat now! (Job 23:12, Jeremiah 15:16)
The deal of the ages begins by design, plan and promise in eternity past and moves through to the cross of Calvary, where the deal was signed in the blood of the Lamb, and on through to eternity, where believers will rule and reign in the universe with our Lord.
God’s deal of the ages:
It all began before the foundation of the world – when our Lord was crucified! (1 Peter 1:20) The deal of the ages is only for the saved.
In the eternal scheme of things, our Lord’s crucifixion runs through all ages. That’s not easy to understand, but it’s the way it is!
John 6:54 “Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood (the cross) has eternal life.”
►Eternal: Strong’s 166 – “Aionios,” Meanings: Ages, everlasting, without end, never ceasing.
Titus 1:2 “God, who cannot lie, before time began, promised us our hope in eternal life.”
Ecclesiastes 3:11 “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has put eternity in their hearts.”
John 10:27-28 “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me and I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.”
John 12:25 “He who loves his life (soul) will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.”
2 Corinthians 4:17-18 “Our light affliction which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things seen are temporary, but the things not see are eternal.”
2 Corinthians 5:1 “We know that if our earthly house, this tent (body) is destroyed, we have a building from God, not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.”
God’s deal of the ages is all about eternity!
No peace for the world:
The world cries “peace, peace,” as it works for world peace. There is a peace that the world gives. It is of the god of the world. It’s a lie and a fraud.
John 14:27 “Peace I leave you; My peace I give to you, not as the world gives...”
Isaiah 48:22 “There is no peace, says the Lord, for the wicked.”
John 16:33 “In Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation.”
The unsaved are infused with the fallen, sin-impregnated, unredeemed blood of Adam. The born-again Christian also has the blood of Adam in him, but in his blood is the invisible, sin-free, spiritual, supernatural blood of Messiah!
When you study all the verses relating to destruction of the world-system and compare them to the glory that lies ahead for believers, you can see how far apart these worlds are.
The promise of God to those who are saved is the metamorphosis from this life to glory!
That which God has attached to Himself by word, promise or covenant is of great value. God has placed His own name in Jerusalem, making it of great value, for His purposes. He has attached Himself to Israel, the remnant Jews and to Christians by covenant promise. We are of great value.
We see this in the parable of hidden treasure, where a man finds great treasure hidden in a field and goes and sells everything he has to buy the field, with the treasure therein. A man finds a pearl of great price and sells all that he has to buy it. (Matthew 14:44-46)
This is all about your priorities and what you attach value to.
Paul says that he considers the things of this world as dung compared to the excellence of the knowledge of God. That’s exactly what far too many Christians have attached value to – cow dung!
The Bible says that qualifying believers will receive eternal rewards described as great valuable treasure, gold and silver. The rewards are described as the brightness of the stars. They are also described as valuable, eternal crowns. They are described as the victory prize.
These rewards are not for all Christians. They are exclusively for those who meet the requirements. This is obviously not a salvation issue, but an issue of rewards for those who are already saved.
The five crowns:
●The incorruptible crown. (1 Corinthians 9:25). ●The crown of righteousness. (2 Timothy 4:7-8) ●The crown of life, also called the martyrs crown. (James 1:12 Revelation 2:10) ●The crown of joy. (Philippians 4:1 1 Thessalonians 2:9) ●The crown of glory. (1 Peter 5:4)
There are different degrees of punishment in hell as revealed in numerous verses.
Israel and the Millennium:
Israel is the main theme and subject of the Millennium. The Jews saved in the tribulation period go through into the Millennium, with Gentiles who are also saved then. But the Millennium is the crowning glory for Israel.
At the end of the Millennium all believers of all ages go through into the eternity of eternities.
Psalm 50:2-6 “Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God will shine forth. Our God shall come, and shall not keep silent. A fire shall devour before Him, and it shall be very tempestuous all around Him. He shall call to the heavens above, and to the earth that He may judge His people. Gather together My saints to Me, those who have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice. Let the heavens declare His righteousness. For God Himself is Judge.”
Isaiah 66:12 “Thus says the Lord: Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles, like a flowing stream...So I will comfort you; and you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.”
Ezekiel 37:26 “I will make a covenant of peace with them (Israel), and it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; I will establish them and multiply them and I will set My sanctuary in their midst forevermore...The nations also shall know that I the Lord, sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forevermore.”
Ezekiel 36:35 “They will say, ‘This land that was desolate has become like the garden of Eden.”
Job 5:22-23 “You shall not be afraid of the beasts of the earth, for you shall have a covenant with the stones of the field; the beasts of the field shall be at peace with you.”
Isaiah 65:24-25 “It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear. The wolf and the lamb shall feed together; the lion shall eat straw like an ox...”
In the Millennium: ●The Holy Spirit is poured out on all flesh. (Joel 2:28, Isaiah 32:15, Ezekiel 39:29) ●The knowledge of the glory of the Lord covers the whole earth. (Habakkuk 2:14) ●There is no more war. (Isaiah 2:4) ●The whole earth is in singing and praise. (Isaiah 14:7) ●The nature of animals is changed (Isaiah 11:6-9) ●There is perfect environment. (Isaiah 30:26, 35:6-7) ●The deserts will bloom. (Isaiah 35:1)Longevity will be the norm. (Isaiah 65:22)
In the Millennium Satan all demons, fallen angels and evil spirits are cast away. (Matthew 13:41)
Details of the deal:
Note in the verse below that the deal of the ages includes many things most people have no idea about at all. Please note the wonder and magnificence of what is to come.
Philippians 3:21 “He will transform our lowly body that it may be confirmed to His glorious body.”
Note in the verse above that our resurrection bodies will be as supernatural as our Lord’s was after His resurrection. Note in the verse below that the “host” implies various forms of intelligent beings out there in the universe.
Isaiah 45:12 “I have made the earth and created man on it. It was I – My hands that stretched out the heavens, and all their host I have commanded.”
“Host”: Strong’s, H6633 “army” “service”, “intelligent beings.”
1 Corinthians 15:40-49 “There are also celestial bodies and terrestrial bodies, but the glory of the celestial is one and glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun and another glory of the moon and another glory of the stars, for one star differs from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown in corruption and raised in incorruption...it is sown a natural body and raised a spiritual body...We shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.”
Authority, ruling and reigning in eternity:
Note in the verses below that only those who meet the conditions qualify. They all relate to our future. As you read them allow them to expand your faith.
2 Timothy2:12 “If we endure, we shall reign with Him.”
Daniel 7:18 “The saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever.”
Daniel 7:27 “Then the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall obey and serve Him.”
Revelation 3:21 “To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.”
“Throne”: Strong’s H3678 “Kicce”. Meanings: Seat of honour, authority, tribunal, royalty, power.
Isaiah 9:7 “Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end.”
Romans 8:19, 21 “For the earnest expectation of the creation waits for the revealing of the sons of God...because the creation itself will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.”
There is much glory in these verses above, that we don’t have understanding of, this side of resurrection. But one thing is clear: Believers who meet the requirements will have authority over all sorts of things in the entire universe.
The principle of authority in eternity is much the same as it is now. Only when we wilfully submit into God’s authority can we have authority. Those who seek and claim authority now have none.
You need to have spiritual eyes to see God’s authority. When you do you will see it in everything from the instinct of a puppy to a king on a throne.
Rebellion to authority is rooted in the fall of both Lucifer and Adam. Their sin was merely a fruit of their deeper rebellion to God’s authority. Rebellion is contagious! When you reject God’s authority you are on a slippery slope, driven by the devil and his demons.
How did Adam and Eve break God’s first covenant (The Edenic covenant)? They were promised many blessings in the garden, but forbidden from eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which would have made them wise.
There was nothing wrong with the tree! The lesson was that wisdom outside of God is fallen, unredeemed and develops into sin.
We see the great, majestic final triumph of the ages wrapped up the spectacular last chapter of the Bible. Here the forbidden Tree of Life becomes the essential tree of our eternal wisdom. It is seen together with the Book of Life – eternal life for the believer.
Revelation 22:1-3 “He showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of its street and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits each tree yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse...”
Revelation 2:7 “He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give to eat from the tree of life which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.”
The universal church – the kingdom of God is headquartered in heaven. It operates as a theocracy under the King of kings. True believers in local churches are automatically members of the universal church. There are no divisions of any sort.
The end of the Christians life is ascension to the throne of God and ruling and reigning in authority on the earth,and in the universe.
“We are joint heirs of all things”. (Romans 8:17)
“We are partakers of His divine nature”. (2 Peter 1:4)
Ephesians 2:6 “We have been raised up together and made to sit together in the heavenly places in Messiah.”
Matthew 19:28 “Assuredly I say to you, that in the regeneration, when the Son of Man sits on the throne of His glory, you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.”
1 Corinthians 6:2 “Do you not know that the saints will judge the world?”
God’s glorious, majestic deal of the ages is on offer. Some of God’s covenant promises are unconditional. Rewards are not. God will keep His side of the deal, but your participation is conditional on your own doings and response.
God’s glorious deal of the ages involves your eternal “brightness,” and how bedecked in gold, silver and jewels (symbolism) you will be forever.
Your body soul and spirit will all be perfect. Your new home in heaven will be perfect and magnificent beyond imagination. Your new home in your new world – heaven will not be made with hands but with glory. (2 Corinthians 5:1)
Your character and personality will be pure and holy and forever sin-free. In fact all your sin will be forever forgotten. You will have no sickness, stress, anxiety, depression and the like. You will live in eternal, tangible peace, in perfect environment.
You will be commissioned with authority to co-reign and rule with Messiah and perform tasks in the entire universe in which you will be able to travel at the speed of thought. The next time you look up at the stars, just remember that all of that is part of God’s kingdom and were created for us all.
Your body will be set as ageless at perhaps around the equivalent of our 30 yrs old. (This is where DNA stops growing) Your body will be able to transition between a natural state and a supernatural state in an instant.
There is much more coming that is beyond our imagination! When you consider all these magnificent things, and then you look to the world trying to construct a world of peace, but full of sin – then you know why the world hates us!
1 Corinthians 2:9 “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
Our Lord of glory:
Our Messiah is the essence, origin and very definition of life, light and wisdom. He is distant yet so very close. He is transcendent, and everywhere and yet removed. He sees all, knows all, judges, loves and shows mercy. He destroys and builds up. He is pure holy power.
He looks at you and into you. He knows you better than you know you. He knows all about you. He knows your every thought. He chooses to love you, forgive, you, show you mercy, raise you up, enthrone you, and give you great wonderful life forever.
We must rule and reign in our lives now too, but it’s all far removed from what is to come.
Be circumspect, examine yourselves as you go, flee all sin, pursue holiness, seek the Lord always, draw near to Him, and you will be on the right path.
The Bible surprisingly says, “Be diligent to enter His rest.” (Hebrews 4:11)
Who is building you? Who do you really hear from? Who do you see and follow?
Psalm 97:10-11 “You who love the Lord, hate evil! He preserves the souls of His saints; He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked. Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.”
This evil world will soon be destroyed, as in the days of Noah. The ark came to rest on Mt. Ararat. The word means: “The curse reversed.” As believers we are now dead to the world and in peace.
What lies ahead for the world is world war, whining, wailing, whimpering and conflict, terror and disaster. What lies ahead for the believer is peace that surpasses understanding, victory, triumph, exaltation, grandeur, jubilation and much more!
Spiritual beauty attracts and inspires and causes desire and emulation.
I took the background picture at sunset, flying above the clouds in the Drakensberg Mountains in a chopper, and the sunrise picture in the Namib Desert and mixed them for effect.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 461: March 19th 2019
Deal of the Century:
These are words of life!
This is also a message to presidents, kings, leaders and all in authority.
Peace in the Middle East and the ancient related prophecies of this event is the subject.
The Trump / Kushner “Deal of the Century” will be released just after the Israeli election in April. At this stage no one except a few insiders, know what the deal contains. There’s been much speculation, which I’m not interested in.
We do know for a fact that the deal will include a wider Middle East peace plan between the Arab nations, the Palestinians and Israel. We do know that it would include some form of land for peace arrangement. The timing of this is all very important.
Due to the details of Bible prophecy, we do know that this “Deal of the Century” cannot be the Daniel 9:27 peace treaty / covenant between Israel and “the many.”
But there is plenty of evidence to presume that this will be a pre-cursor to Daniel 9:27.
With that in mind, I believe it is timely to look into the subject now, ahead of time.
For some odd reason, many Christians believe that this peace deal will be of God. Perhaps that’s because of the Trump / Kushner involvement. Yes, I believe God has and will still use President Trump for many things; just He used the Persian king – Cyrus.
But make no mistake, this deal is pure satanic, and will lead to the unveiling of the antichrist.
We all know Jarred Kushner had his offices in number 666 Fifth Avenue New York. This was where he sat working on the deal when it all started up. That is a bit more than a subliminal sign! No, he is NOT the antichrist!
Due to original words used, this is NOT the reviving of an existing peace treaty like the Oslo Accord and others. They are all long gone and stone dead. Their details are not relevant anymore either, meaning they would have to be totally re-negotiated.
What we need to watch for, when the deal is released, and if accepted by the parties, is the response to it. Will it lead to the big Daniel 9 covenant, which could come within months afterwards, perhaps on Rosh Hashanah in September!
Daniel 9:27 “Then he (antichrist) shall confirm a covenant with many for one week (of years); but in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wings of the abomination shall be one who makes desolate...” (See also Daniel 8:25, 11:21)
The timing is important, because so many other prophetic ducks are lined up in a row too!
Bear in mind that we are in strange days these days. So far there has been rejection of any sort of deal with Israel, by the Palestinians. But as, said, these days are of supernatural occurrences. Something will cause them to melt!
The deal will include aspects relating to Jerusalem or parts of it. It will also include something relating to the rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem.
The biggest issue of all; and the very reason for the start of the tribulation period and God’s fury and anger, is the subject of the rest of this edition – a peace covenant.
The coming Deal of the Century and what it leads to will be a stumbling block for Israel!
Leviticus 19:14 “...You shall put no stumbling block before the blind, but shall fear the Lord your God. I am the Lord.”
The pre-existing, eternal covenant:
Ezekiel 37:26-28 “I will make a covenant of peace with them (Israel) and it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: I will establish them and multiply them and set My sanctuary in their midst forevermore. My tabernacle will be with them; indeed I shall be their God and they shall be My people. The nation s also will know that I, the Lord sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forevermore.” (The following verses describe the Gog and Magog war, or WW111.)
Please note very well that God has an existing, eternal peace covenant with Israel.
Tragically, prophecy reveals that Israel will break God’s covenant and replace it with the doomed, death, peace covenant with the antichrist.
The violation of God’s covenant:
Exodus 23:32-33 “You shall make no covenant with them, nor with their gods. They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against Me. For if you serve their gods, (Islam) it will surely be a snare to you.”
Isaiah 28:15 “You have said, ‘We have made a covenant with death, and with hell we are in agreement. When the overflowing scourge (tribulation) passes through, it will not come to us, for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood we have hidden ourselves.’”
The verses above and below reveal, Israel’s greatest mistake.
Isaiah 28:18 “Your covenant with death will be annulled, and your agreement with Sheol (hell) will not stand; when the overflowing scourge passes through, then you will be trampled down by it.”
Amazingly, we see from the two verses above, that Israel will make a covenant with the antichrist, thinking it will spare them from God’s wrath in the tribulation. But what happens is just what is revealed in numerous other prophecies: The covenant with hell gets broken and they do get “trampled” by the tribulation period!
Here are more of the tragic covenant-breaking verses:
Hosea 8:1-3 “Set the trumpet to your mouth! He shall come like an eagle against the house of the Lord, because they have transgressed My covenant and rebelled against My law. Israel will cry to Me, ‘My God, we know You!’ Israel has cast off the good; the enemy will pursue him.”
Daniel 11:32 “Those who do wickedly against the covenant, he (antichrist) will corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong and carry out great exploits.”
So, God has an existing eternal covenant with Israel, which Kushner and co. Have totally ignored and or rejected in favour of their own!
To accommodate Jews being saved, now before the tribulation, they come into the New Covenant, as revealed below.
Jeremiah 31:31-33 “Behold the days are coming says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel...I will put My law in their minds and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God and they will be My people.”
Isaiah 54:10 “My kindness shall not depart from you (Israel), nor shall My covenant of peace be removed.”
Preparation for the world ruler:
The coming world-ruler needs a world that he can rule. Socialism unites people offering the united masses to the devil on a tarnished silver platter, with true biblical freedom destroyed.
It’s all a centrally orchestrated move. None of what is happening is by chance. The world will, very suddenly, and powerfully snap into socialist unity the instant the Bible and its believers are silenced, or removed by rapture.
Islam will be an instrument to bring chaos to the world ahead of the release of the antichrist.
Let’s have a look at a picture painted by some word meanings:
►The word “Islam” means “submission or surrender”
►The word “Palestinian” comes from the root Hebrew word, “Plishtim” which means “Invaders.”
►The word “Hamas” is a Hebrew word meaning “violence.”
►The word “Jihad” means “The exertion of power,” “struggle by the sword, “holy war”.
►Abraham means: “Father of multitudes”.
►Isaac means: “Laughter”.
►Jacob means: “Supplanter” or replacement. (Jacob became Israel)
►Israel means: “Prince with God.”
In these name meanings we see a pathway of hatred, revenge, war, violence and hostility from Islam. And we see a totally different character in the Jews.
The world sees Israel as the aggressor and the Palestinians (Islam) as the victim! The Bible shows the opposite.
God’s will for Israel:
God has brought Israel to their knees and to captivity many times, because of their sin and rebellion. But He has never rejected them and will complete and bring His plan to pass.
Even when Israel was in captivity, God kept them as His own, knowing that there would come a time when they would repent on a massive scale.
►The place of Israel and the Jews in a nation is that nation’s own insurance policy from God. Israel is the safeguard. This is profound and far reaching. Israel is their safeguard because God has placed His name, word and will in the heart of Israel. His major work with Israel is still ahead.
Here is God’s word relating to the Jews in dispersion amongst the nations:
Jeremiah 29:7 “Seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace you will have peace.”
Here is the contrast as revealed in the Islamic Quran:
“I charge you to immigrate and wage jihad for the sake of Allah.” (Hadith 2863, the sayings of Muhammad.) Quran (Sura 8:74) “Those who believed and emigrated and performed jihad for the sake of Allah, and those who gave you help are the true believers. They will receive forgiveness.”
The purpose of Islamic migration is for subversion. It is for jihad to achieve ultimate world domination and to bring in world Sharia law.
Of the 99 names of Allah, none are “Father.”
Number 10 = “The most proud and dominant.”
Number 61 = “The destroyer and inflictor of death.”
Number 91 = “The distressor.”
Here is nature of the Arab’s (Islam) as revealed in the Bible:
Genesis 27:40-41 “By your sword you shall live, and you shall serve your brother, and it shall come to pass when you become restless, that you shall break his yolk from your neck. So Esau hated Jacob (Israel)”
Genesis 25:30-34 “Esau (father of the Arabs) said to Jacob, ‘please feed me with that same red stew, for I am weary.” Therefore his was called Edom (meaning red). But Jacob said, ‘Sell me your birthright today’...so he sold him his birthright...Thus Esau hated (rejected) his birthright.’”
The Deal of the Century will be a work to restore at least part of Esau’s birthright, which was sold to Jacob (Israel) in a legal transaction, confirmed by God’s covenant!
Right now, the world and its media puppets of their puppet master, Satan, can’t see through their deep, dark veil of blindness!
God’s will for Israel is to stand firm and separate from the world. The Deal of the Century will want to draw Israel fully into the world and separate them from God! Remember that Islam is forever advancing. It wants world domination and in particular domination of Israel.
The Deal of the Century will mobilise and facilitate Israel to become a slave of the world and its doomed peace.
God’s deal and the world’s deal:
Will the Deal of the Century affect any of the following, and what are the central issues within God’s covenant promise to Israel?
- God’s deal is eternal and must never be broken.
- God’s deal is to bring peace to Israel, through Messiah.
- God’s deal includes the land of Israel, its borders, the city of Jerusalem and the Jewish people.
- God’s deal is to prepare Israel to take salvation to the world.
Exodus 34:11-14 “Observe what I command you this day. Behold I am driving out from before you the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite. Take heed to yourself, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you are going, lest it be a snare in your midst. You shall destroy their altars, break their sacred pillars and cut down their wooden images, for you shall worship no other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous is a jealous God.”
In the verse above, we see God’s command to drive out various nations; some are the originators of the Palestinian people today. The instruction of God is not to make any sort of covenant with them!
Isaiah 9:16 “The leaders of this people (Philistines – modern Palestinians) cause them to err, and those who are led by them are destroyed.”
The deal will divide the land:
To appease and please the devil and his hordes, The Deal of the Century will have to include dividing some sections of the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem.
This does NOT bring peace but war and judgement!
Joel 3:2 “I will gather all nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat; I will enter into judgement with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land.”
Daniel 11:39 “Thus he (antichrist) shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god (Satan), which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory and he shall cause them to rule over many and divide the land for gain.”
Deuteronomy 27:17 “Cursed is the one who moves his neighbour’s landmark. And all the people say, amen!”
Leaders of the world:
If you are a leader of any sort in any nation, please read the following verses and note that they are addressed to you. Note and understand the severity of God upon you, and please note that you will pay for your choices, especially, but not exclusively, relating to Israel.
Job 12:24-25 “He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, and makes them wander in a pathless wilderness. They grope in the dark without the light; he makes then stagger like a drunken man.”
Revelation 20:12-15 “I saw the dead small and great, standing before God and books were opened, and another book was opened which is the Lamb’s Book of Life, and the dead were judged according to their works, by the things that were written in the books...And anyone not found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.”
Isaiah 14:9 “Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming. It stirs up the dead for you. All the chiefs of the earth it has raised up from their thrones and all the kings of the nations.”
Isaiah 24:21 “It shall come to pass in that day that the Lord will punish on high the host of the exalted ones, and on the earth the kings of the earth.”
Jeremiah 50:41-42 “Behold, a people shall come from the north, and a great nation and many kings shall be raised up from the ends of the earth. They shall hold the bow and lance; they are cruel and shall show no mercy. Their voice shall roar like the sea; they shall ride on horses set in array, like a man of battle, against you O daughter of Babylon.”
Lamentations 4:12-14 “The kings of the earth and all the inhabitants of the world, would not have believed that the adversary and the enemy could enter the gates of Jerusalem – because of the sins of her prophets and the iniquities of her priests, who shed in her midst the blood of the just. They wandered blind in the streets...”
Zechariah 12:2-3 “Behold I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem and it will happen in that day, that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples. All who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.”
Political leaders of the world, here is the crown and pinnacle of your creation and your doings. You are the cause of this:
Isaiah 24: 4-6 “The earth mourns and fades away; the world languishes and fades away. The haughty people of the earth languish. The earth is also defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinances, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore the curse has devoured the earth, and those who dwell in it are desolate...”
Part of the need for a Jewish state is for them to have a secure place away from anti-Semitism and domination by Islam, and the ways of the world.
Isaiah 51:18 “There is no one to guide her among all the sons she has brought forth; nor is there any who takes her by the hand among all the sons she has brought up.”
The constitution of a nation is an insight into its foundation. Here are two real examples of the opening preamble of two of them: ●“In submission to Almighty God, we declare that...” ●“We the people declare that...”
It’s interesting that most nations that have had a godly national constitution of some sort, have historically been pro-Israel, and the others not. It all has spiritual roots!
Right now, before it all begins, true Christians are God’s peace offering to Israel!
I hope you see why the peace of Jerusalem is only possible with the Prince of Peace resident and not the Peace deal of the Century!
The peace Deal of the Century is way to war, wrath, tribulation and judgement.
This is the end of man’s best efforts, -all cursed just like Adam’s best effort!
►I and The Prophetic Scroll, again affirm our commitment to stand with and for Israel in these dangerous days ahead.
Isaiah 49:3 “He said to me, ‘You are My servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.’”
Amos 9:15 “I will plant them (Jews) in their land, and they shall no longer be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord your God.”
Ezekiel 13:18 “...Will you hunt the souls of My people and keep yourselves alive?”
I took this picture of an immature crowned eagle in a forest nearby, and mixed it with a baobab tree.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
