But first: The American vote: A vote for the Democrats is a vote to rebuild Babylon (which God destroyed) and a vote for the Republicans is a vote for a reprieve for the world, and for many kingdom of God principles.
Walking right in a crooked world:
Romans 12:3 “I say to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one the (a) measure of faith.”
The original word used for a ‘measure’ of faith is “Metron,” meaning a determined, measured -off extent.
This applies particularly well to teachers, watchmen and the like. They get given a “spear” and sceptre of authority and influence, which is limited.
But God can change the limit or measure depending on the obedience of the subject.
Many in ministry have no “metron” of God at all but only presumption. There ‘metron’ is manipulative, deceptive, which has no authority or ‘spear’ behind it at all.
As a teacher, you can become the “deceiver of the brethren” and nothing but a control freak if you’re not within your limit of authority.
Many in ministry have had a spiritual gift imparted to them through the laying on of hands. That is perfectly biblical, but as with all things true, be careful, there is a counterfeit too. Laying on of hands can transfer the spirit of the imparter.
The laying on of hands by a false teacher also lays on you false words of false authority. I once heard a prophetic anointing being given to a minister by another false minister, who said at the time of laying on of hands that the recipient would have massive influence and authority around the world. Shortly afterwards he was dead!
Don’t let anyone “lay hands on you suddenly”, which means too quickly without full discernment. It is your job to see to that.
You can receive a false anointing, or mantle of demons from the laying on of hands by a false teacher.
Following a false leader will lead you astray eventually. You must test the spirits. When you come into agreement with a false teacher you have opened a door that you will find very hard to close.
As the world has left the word and is experiencing the dramatic consequences, so the same is true for a section of the church, which has left the word. It has left the literal interpretation and Spirit-led application of the word – disaster has come to those churches.
Those churches then operate in a false ‘anointing’, with no ‘metron’ at all.
Don’t underestimate the power of going off into error. It can wreck you. You will not live right on wrong doctrine. It’s progression will destroy you spiritually.
The only unified, universal message of the unsaved is that sin is okay and the Bible is not.
When you affirm that some sin like homosexuality is a basic human right and then go honestly to the Bible, you will notice that never the twain shall meet! (And I’m not talking of the Moody Blues!) You have to throw out one or the other.
Have you noticed that we are seeing so much fake news today? These things are all spiritually charged and on course – the wrong course.
Trust in the media is declining fast. The world’s mega media empires have been uniting and merging. This has seen a dramatic escalation in unified misinformation and fake news. But most people eventually see the hidden agenda behind the mass media and reject it.
The mass media have shot themselves in the foot. You can’t hoodwink people forever, except the uneducated, fools and the possessed.
Tragically, the same is happening in many churches who have a message that just doesn’t fly anymore, and disillusioned people just give up.
The image below is your key to a successful Christian life, even in these times. It is the light of life (to the Jew and Gentile) represented in the menorah, the truth of God’s word (all of it), and the application of the cross.
►Here is a most important sign to stay safe in these dangerous days of deception: Who else shares and agrees with what you have been taught. There is always a group of mature, deeply spiritual, highly informed Spirit-led pastors, leaders, and teachers out there. They are your spiritual measuring rod. They are your safety net.
In these days of much resistance, perhaps the greatest opportunities to grow your faith in our Lord, loom large!
You can change your future now. When you get there, it’s a done deal, over and out - no going back! There will be tears of regret, gnashing of teeth or wonderful relief in eternal victory. You will be met with: “Well done good and faithful servant, or the terror of “depart from Me, I never knew you!”
“The fire will test each one work of what sort it is.” (1 Corinthians 3:13)
The battle is for your mind. Your mind is the great aggregator, sifter and decider of what you think say and do. But inside your mind is your own “holy of holies” That is your choice-centre. If the devil can get in there he will defeat you.
You must fill your heart and mind with the word.
Your mind is the doorway to your spirit – the ultimate target and goal of the devil.
What often angers me no end, is the presumption by the shallow prophets that they are hearing God for you. You must listen to them, as though they, in all their error and failed predictions, hear God speaking to them. They think that others don’t have ears to hear God. In reality God is speaking to some of them and telling them to get out of ministry.
It’s a very serious thing to lead someone astray.
Be careful when you say you speak for God! Of course there is nothing at all wrong with saying that you believe, God is saying this or that, or that you feel impressed by Him about this or that.
So much of “the Lord told me to tell you,” and “I had a dream” is pure garbage.
If you put all the rapture dreams everyone and his auntie is having these days into a big aggregator machine, the machine would explode, because they’re all so different, with different time lines, accompanied with “the Lord told me, its 100% true.” The machine would spit smoke and say, “sorry, no comprehendo”. So you take out the instruction manual and it says: “This machine does not work and will self destruct if fed lies.”
Deuteronomy 13:1-3 “If there arises among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams and he gives you a sign and a wonder ...and it is in error, you shall not listen to his words.”
Jeremiah 23:25-32 “I have heard what the prophets have said who prophecy lies in My name, saying, ‘I have dreamed, I have dreamed!’...Indeed they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart...I am against the prophets who steal My words from his neighbour. I am against the prophets who use their tongue and say, ‘The Lord says.’ I am against those who prophesy false dreams, and tell them and cause My people to err...I did not send them...”
Don’t throw the baby out with the whiskey. There are occasions – few of them, where dreams may have some relevance.
The jury is still out on Pastor Dana Coverstone’s dreams as their fulfilment still lies ahead. He most certainly does not come across as one looking for self-affirmation though.
Edition 540: September 22nd 2020.
2021 is it!
2021-2022 is also the Hebrew year 5782. It begins on Tishrei 1st September 7th-8th next year at Rosh Hashanah / Feast of Trumpets, which marks the transition.
We have now just changed to the Hebrew year 5781 at Rosh Hashanah a few days ago.
Why is the two-day Feast of Trumpets next year so important? The rapture / tribulation start will occur on one of those two days!
You may say that I’m sticking my neck out! You are quite right! But as you will see it’s not without very good reason. Besides, it’s my neck, isn’t it, and I’m happy to risk it! (It won’t be the first time!)
God does things decently and in order. That includes numeric or mathematical order. It includes the order and majesty of nature, science and the like. It includes many things revealed in typology.
Hebrew is a remarkable language. It is alpha-numeric, meaning the letters have number values, allowing you to add up the number of a word. Numbers also have biblical meanings. Hebrew is also a pictographic language, meaning the shape of a letter forms a picture, which has meaning as well.
The new Hebrew year 5781 (leading into 2021) (ש)
A verse for the year:
Joel 3:16 “The Lord will roar from Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem. The heavens and the earth will shake; The Lord will be a shelter for His people and the strength of the children of Israel.”
This is the start of a major prophetic season. It’s the final countdown!
A Hebrew year is characterised by many things, some of which give insight into what that coming year will be like. The numbers 5781 have the following pictograph meaning in Hebrew:
5= eye (ayin). 7 = plough (zayin). 8 = fence (chet). 1 (aleph) = ox.
This will be the year of careful watching (eye). It will be the year of diligent hard work for the kingdom (plough). It will be the year separation from the world’s ways (fence), and it will be year in which much spiritual strength is needed (ox).
This is also the year characterised by the Hebrew letter “shin,” (ש) which bears the appearance of teeth, as well as flames of fire, according to Hebrew tradition. Shin is the 21st letter of the Hebrew alphabet, which is where the tie up with the year 2021 comes in. (Remember that 5781 runs through to September 2021. Hebrew tradition recognises both the Gregorian and Hebrew calendars)
“Shin” has the numeric value of 300. The ark of Noah was 300 cubits in length.
●The teeth of “shin” represent, power, crushing, and biting, great sorrow and anger (“gnashing of teeth”)
● “Shin” as flames of fire represents the power of the Holy Spirit, destruction, judgement, persecution, purification and refining.
Here is another amazing aspect to the year 5781:
One of the meanings of the Hebrew number 5781 is “pressed, oppression, distress. HERE
This year 5781 ends on Rosh Hashanah, September 7th through to the 8th 2021. That’s when the Hebrew year 5782 begins.
►The number 5782 means: “To open the eyes, arise or rouse oneself awake.” HERE
We are on the verge of the awakening of the true church in heaven after the rapture.
We are on the verge of the veil of blindness falling from the eyes of the Jews. They will arise, awaken and see the one whom they pierced and mourn! What drama!
Israel, it’s time to awake, open your eyes, look out from behind your veil, call on your Messiah and He will answer you. The time of your blindness is complete.
Isaiah 46:9-10 “...I am God and there is no other and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times, things are that are not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand.”
1 Thessalonians 5:20-21 “Do not despise prophecy, test all things...”
Amazing facts for Israel:
►1948 (5708) was the year of Israel’s birth as a nation in one day. (Isaiah 66:8)
The 5708th verse in the Bible is Deuteronomy 30: 5 “The Lord your God will bring you (Israel) to the land which your fathers possessed and you shall possess it. He will prosper you and multiply you more than your fathers.”
►1967 was the Hebrew year 5727. This was the year the Jews liberated Jerusalem in the Six Day war. The 5727th verse in the Bible is Deuteronomy 31:3 “The Lord your God Himself crosses over before you and you shall dispossess them...”
Coincidences? I think not!!
Some say a biblical generation is 80 years. (Psalm 90:9-10) So, if you add 80 to 1948 we come to the year 2028. We need to come forward seven years for the tribulation period, which brings us to 2021 for the rapture, tribulation and awakening of Israel.
2021 will be the year of Israel’s spiritual birth. It most certainly will be the start of it.
So, is the number 80 important relating to Israel’s release from spiritual death, and oppression by the world, to their spiritual Promised Land?
Meaning of the number 80: “Freedom from oppressors”. HERE
Here is something incredible:
►Moses was 80 when he told Pharaoh to “Let My people go from Egypt (type of the world).” (Exodus 7:7)
►Daniel was 80 when he interpreted the handwriting on the wall of Babylon (type of the world) leading to its destruction.
►The children of Israel were in captivity and slavery in Egypt for four generations. Four is the number of the world and is one of the reasons why Egypt is a type of the world.
The beginning and end of the tribulation period:
I have presented a very strong case for the start of the seven-year tribulation at the Feast of Trumpets next year.
If that is so, it means the tribulation ends seven year later. The tribulation is ended by the Second Coming at the great war of Armageddon. That would be the year 2028 or the Hebrew year 5788.
The year 5788 which would be the year of Armageddon, and end of the tribulation has a phonetic spelling meaning “A slaughter”, or “carnage.” HERE
The meaning of the 2028 is “Sharp, strong weapons of war.” HERE
Jeremiah 4:1 “If you return, O Israel, says the Lord, return to Me, and if you will put away your abominations out of My sight, then you shall not be moved.”
The fig tree generation:
When does fig tree generation end? Israel, as the fig tree began to put forth leaves in 1948. (The fig tree is a type of Israel revealed in a number of verses.)
Luke 21:29-32 “Look at the fig tree and all the trees, when they are already budding, you see and know that summer is near. So when you see all these things (tribulation events) happening, know that the kingdom of God is near. Assuredly, I say to you that this generation will by no means pass away until all these are fulfilled.”
This verse is very insightful. “The fig tree” is Israel. “All the trees” are the nations.
The budding fig tree is Israel being born as a nation in a day, (Isaiah 66:8). At that time, huge numbers of other nations became independent as well. That is “all the trees.”
This all speaks prophetically of the starting time for the final generation.
The next Shemittah year:
This applies more to Israel than the nations, but there is a universal principle here as well.
►The next Shemittah year is ushered in at Rosh Hashanah 2021. (Hebrew year 5782) This is also called the “Sabbatical Year.” (Exodus 23:10-11)
The word “Shemittah” means: “To let go and release.”
Deuteronomy 15:1-2 “At the end of every seven years (Shemittah) you shall grant a remission of debts. Jeremiah 34:13-14 reveals that every seven years Hebrew slaves were to be released.
The end of the Amelekites:
The Amalekites (leader – Amalek) were a tribe that hated Israel and tried to attack and obstruct Israel on their way to the Promised Land, as they left Egypt. (Exodus 17:8-16, 1 Samuel 30:1-2)
Amalekites are called the “first of the nations” (of the world). The name “Amalek” means “wickedness, sorrow, trouble.” Amalek was also known as the “one who licks the blood.”
In their attacks on Israel, what they did was hideous. They cut down and killed the weak, young and vulnerable of the children of Israel in the wilderness. The Bible says they did not fear God.
Today the modern Arab / Palestinians are a derivative of the Amalekites. But we could extend the principle to all those who hate Israel and want to destroy her on her way to redemption.
Amalek is the symbol of evil in the world today, obstructing the work of God. It is the symbol of anti-Semitism. The Jews are commanded of God to always remember evil of the Amalekites. Today Israel is being coerced into making a peace deal with them!
The Amalekites are also a clear type of the churches of replacement theology.
Exodus 17:16 “The Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.”
►I don’t have chapter and verse for this, but I am sticking my neck out and saying that we are on the verge of the total destruction of the modern Amalekites.
Hell’s great peace effort:
This will be the year of great things including the greatest deception ever. That will be Satan’s peace efforts. It will occur within Islam as well. It will all be designed to bring peace without the Prince of Peace, and peace without the cross of Messiah. It will be the great “peace” of hell.
The Catholic church and many others will also fall for the false peace – interfaith peace!
True love and peace are of God and therefore prime targets for great deception. That is where the world is right now!
Circumstantial evidence supports the reality on the ground:
In this edition I have given you a lot of what would be called in legal jargon, circumstantial evidence for the rapture / tribulation start in September next year. In fact the evidence is compelling and substantial to say the least.
Any look at any evidence for the rapture that does not include everything prophetic being aligned and in place, at the same time, has as much value as a squashed amoeba.
As I have said many times recently, there are too many ducks not lined up yet. I keenly looked at Trumpets just past, but also clearly said that we know more as we got closer. As we did, I said – “No not this year.”
But we are not far from the big ducks lining up fast. If they don’t – duck for dinner!
I say again, if the reality on the ground is not in line by Trumpets next year, then we will all have to line up for admission to the Looney Bin.
You see, things can’t go on forever. They have to reach their dramatic conclusion soon. So far the evidence on the ground is moving fast. It will soon fall into line with all this circumstantial evidence, and bang – Lekker, lekker, we will soon voetsak out of here. (South African Afrikaans slang)
The greatest drama of all time:
There is a very good reason why I maintain that the rapture / tribulation start can only occur on a Feast of Trumpets. If not, it would be left prophetically unfulfilled, with nothing else coming anywhere near close to fulfilling it. That would throw the present consistency way out and make a mockery of the prophetic importance of all the feasts in their order.
By the way, the Catholic Council of Laodicea in 365AD outlawed the “Feasts of the Jews” for the church. This was when they changed the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday, again to distance themselves from the Jews. (More on that pure evil soon.)
At the Second Coming, “every eye will see Him” for billions of people – too late. They will all suddenly know how wrong their entire lives have been. They will gnash their teeth and blaspheme the living God.
The wise will have heard the trumpet of all trumpets seven years earlier (2021), and transitioned into new incorruptible beings and teleported out of here faster than a thousand rocket ships, making superman look like a fried imbecile.
Summary of the main points:
This Hebrew year into September 2021 will be the most important prophetic time we have yet seen for Israel and the church.
This year ending on September 7th and 8th next year (Rosh Hashanah) will be a year of: ●Careful accurate watching for the things of God and the enemy. ●It will be a year of diligent work for the expansion of the kingdom. ●It will be a time to separate from the world and a time of increasing spiritual strength. ●It will be a time of crushing, regret and much gnashing of teeth. ●It will be a time of the fire of destruction and the fire of refining and the fire of the Holy Spirit at work. ●It will be a year of pressure, stress and distress. (Some of these relate to the church and some to the world.)
●As 5781 ends at Rosh Hashanah 2021 we move into the Hebrew year 5782 which is marked by “opening of eyes and awakening” for Israel, which will be the tribulation start and rapture.
●This will be a year in which the kingdom of this world will deteriorate into anarchy, chaos, rebellion to God and hatred for all things of God, at great speed.
●Good and evil with thrive side by side. One will be mistaken for the other by those who are not diligent and spiritually in tune.
●It will be the year of prophesied wars. It will be a year of false peace accords and more.
●It will be the year of the beginning of the unveiling of the wrath of nature.
●It will be a year of many Christians, particularly in the west, giving up hope. Many will give up in despair because they have been kept ignorant, and deprived of Bible prophecy by their church leaders. They have been denied knowledge and understanding of what is and must occur.
●This will the year of many false teachers, watchmen and ministries leading the unsuspecting astray.
●It will be the year of powerful revival particularly in the east.
●For many this will be their greatest time of spiritual growth and victory.
There is a fast growing trend amongst born again Christians who have been robbed of the Hebraic richness of their spiritual lives to return to, or seek the truth in all these things. Don’t be left out.
Many have been disappointed to see no rapture this Feast of Trumpets just gone.
I tell you this: It is far, far better to have an active hope and be disappointed, than to not have that hope in the first place!
Don’t give up now; we are on the verge of great glory and victory! Renew your hope and your strength.

Edition 539: September 15th 2020.
Goodbye and good riddance! Goodbye world, hullo Lord – next year!
The world stage is set for the greatest drama of all time!
For many of the Christian remnant, we said “goodbye cruel world” a long time ago! As part of the ingredients of the salvation of our soul, we have died to the world, the flesh / sin nature and the demonic influences and activities in the world - all through the cross.
Now many are suddenly jumping on the Christian dead-wagon to be carted off to the local dump. Dying to self and the world releases us from its grip and brings peace.
As a Christian we die and are born again (spirit). We die to self as an ongoing experience (soul). We will soon “die” as these mortal bodies are changed into immortal bodies in a flash. (body)
If you thought by “goodbye world” I meant now at the Feast of Trumpets in a week, you are wrong!
I did say weeks ago, that we will see if it is this year’s feast, as the time approaches.
I can safely say now, that it will not be this year but next.
►Don’t miss next week’s edition. I have some remarkable things to share!
These are tempestuous, violent times. As we approach the rapture of the true church the world approaches the tribulation period. As the Lord’s wrath approaches (Revelation 16:1), the wrath of Satan approaches (Revelation 12:12), the wrath of man intensifies and the wrath of nature waits in the wings.
These are crushing times! Did you know that the meaning of the Hebrew letters of their new year 5781, coming next week is: To be “pressed” or “crushed.”
The Feast of Trumpets:
►Firstly, there will be no blowing of the shofar / trumpets at this feast of trumpets next week. This is because shofar / trumpet blowing is forbidden when the feast falls on a Sabbath. (Look it up).
This Friday 18th at sunset, the feast begins and lasts to Sunday 20th. It’s been very encouraged to see so many wake-up to the fact that the Feast of Trumpets will herald the rapture and tribulation start. I have stood almost alone in this view since the 1980’s, except for a few of us die-hards.
The rapture / tribulation will begin on a Feast of Trumpets, but I need to share why I believe it is not this one, but the next one – Monday 6th September to the 8th 2021.
The two main requirements for the tribulation to begin are the revealing of the antichrist by and through the signing of a peace deal, revealed in Daniel 9:27, Daniel 8:25 and others.
The main biblical ingredients of the peace deal will be: ●Signing by the person to be revealed as the antichrist. ●The breaking of God’s eternal covenant with Israel. ●It must be a seven year covenant. ●The handing over of much of Jerusalem to the Palestinians. ●A temple to be built on the Temple Mount. ●A peace treaty with Israel and Arab neighbours. ●It will involve dividing the land of Israel.
Once again let me say that the US Deal of the Century does not fulfil any of these requirements and is in fact no deal at all, because it was not ratified and never came into being.
That Deal of the Century, did not divide Israel. Israel was and is already divided. Israel was divided by the Turks, the Jordanians, and the British. That’s what Gaza and the West Bank is! There is no other peace deal or covenant that fulfils the above requirements.
So if you say, as many do, the antichrist confirms an existing covenant (wrong interpretation), what covenant is that? The correct interpretation of Daniel 9:27 is the Amplified Bible’s position:
Daniel 9:27 (Amp) “He (antichrist) shall enter into a strong and firm covenant with many for one week (of years)...”
At the time, or very shortly after the tribulation begins, the ten-nation revised Roman Empire comes into play.
At the time, or perhaps just before the tribulation begins, the big prophesied end-time wars take place.
As you see, we are close to some of these things, but none are in place and ready to roll and there is one week to go! These things can all happen quickly, but there is too much that needs to be fulfilled.
The current peace initiatives between Israel and various Arab nations are not it either.
The peace deals on the go now with the minor Arab nations of the region are of no prophetic consequence on their own. All together, they point to a shifting tide in the Middle East, which is good. But beware - the heart of Islam has not changed.
These peace initiatives with smaller Arab nations have a sting in the tail!
The sting in the tail is this: It dupes the world into thinking it can create peace. But the world’s peace is always a deception awaiting destruction.
Some are saying that these mini-peace deals are the fulfilment of “When they say peace and security, sudden destruction comes.” (1 Thessalonians 5:3)
Not so! The peace that is being referred to here is the coming Daniel 9:27 peace deal, and that is not here yet. A whole bunch of Arab nations making peace deals with Israel would most certainly be significant and a forerunner of the big one to come, but it is not the big one yet.
The “sudden destruction” is most certainly the as yet unfulfilled prophesied wars in the Middle East.
The Bible speaks of “wars and rumours of wars” as part of the “birth pangs” and “beginning of sorrows,” and “the end is not yet.” (Matthew 24:6)
We are not seeing these wars just yet.
There is little sign of required repentance, especially in the church for the big culprits of the current upheavals, which is the mass murder of the unborn, aggressive, expanding homosexuality and the like. To say ridiculous things like all these troubles in the world are because Trump divided Israel is an outrageous misdirection.
There is danger in jumping the gun. We would all like to go home next week, me included, but beware that you don’t get on the wrong train and lose hope!
If you have none of the revelatory gifts of the Spirit operating in you, especially as a teacher or watchman, you will have no spiritual revelation of your own. You will then constantly have your own self and personal experience (“private interpretation”) to go on, and you will always be borrowing second hand revelation from others. You will be known by that!
Some are calling for the rapture at almost every turn and always fail like ghost riders in the sky!
Israel’s new Promised Land:
The most amazing, and little-known type in the Bible is seen in the journey of the children of Israel from Egyptian captivity, through the Red Sea, into the wilderness and finally into the Promised Land.
The type is this:
Israel was let go from Egypt, a type of the world.
The Red Sea crossing is a type of Israel’s miraculous victory in the War of Independence and subsequent birth as a nation. That occurred in 1948 when Israel became a nation in a day, perfectly fulfilling Isaiah 66:8.
The time in the wilderness is a type of Israel now. She is independent and free, but not in her spiritual Promised Land yet.
Along the way to the Promised Land, Israel had to deal with much opposition like Jericho which obstructed her path and journey. That is a type of all Israel’s opposition today including from the church in the form of replacement theology.
Did Israel finally make it to the Promised Land? You bet she did. Will she make it to her spiritual Promised Land? You bet she will!
I’ve included the following verses without commentary. A simple reading of these verses is very powerful, and paints a most dramatic picture. Read them!
Micah 7:19-20 “God will again have compassion on us, and will subdue our iniquities. You will cast our sins into the depths of the sea. You will give truth to Jacob (Israel)...”
Isaiah 60:21 “Your people (Israel) shall all be righteous; they shall inherit the land forever, the branch of My planting, the work of My hands, that I may be glorified.”
Hosea 14:4-6 “I will heal their backsliding. I will love them freely, for My anger has turned away from him. I will be like the dew to Israel...His beauty shall be like an olive tree.”
Zephaniah 3:13 “The remnant of Israel shall do no unrighteousness and speak no lies, nor shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth...”
Deuteronomy 14:2 “You (Israel) are a holy people to the Lord your God, and the Lord has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the earth.”
Numbers 23:9 “From the hills, I behold him, (Israel) a people dwelling alone, not reckoning itself among the nations.”
Jeremiah 24:7 “Then I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am the Lord; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God, for they shall return to Me with a whole heart.”
Isaiah 45:17, 25 “Israel shall be saved by the Lord with an everlasting salvation and shall not be ashamed or disgraced forever and ever...In the Lord all the descendants of Israel shall be justified and shall glory.”
Jeremiah 50:19-20 “I will bring back Israel to his habitation...In those days and at that time, says the Lord, the iniquity of Israel shall be sought, but there shall be none; and the sins of Judah, but they shall not be found; for I will pardon those whom I preserve.”
The coming US election:
Here is a likely scenario for the US: The Democratic Party has all but shot itself in the foot, handing victory to Trump. This is because the majority of people have a basic Christian worldview in them, even if not practiced actively.
One should never underestimate the importance of having a biblical worldview, which supports a nation under God. That does not mean that everyone who holds to those views is personally saved, but when the pressure is on it reveals what people are made of.
Big pressure is here with more coming, but don’t throw in the towel USA! Turn to those long held biblical principles which the liberals are trying to destroy.
USA, and nations with large Jewish populations, please bear this severe biblical principle in mind:
►There is a repeating principle revealed in the Bible: God punishes Israel for their rebellion by bringing them into captivity by the nations. But then when the job is done, God destroys the very nation that held the Jews captive.
The US and others are not holding the Jews physically captive, but they are in the sense of lifestyle and sinful behaviour, which is keeping them blinded.
The reason is simple. When in captivity, the children of Israel were influenced by the sin, paganism, and evil of the nations holding them captive.
Matthew 18:7 Woe to the world for its stumbling blocks (offences). They must come, but woe to that man through who they come.”
Ezekiel 23:30 “I will do these things to you, because you have gone as a harlot after the Gentiles, because you have become defiled by their idols.”
Deuteronomy 12:30-31 “Take heed to yourself (Israel) that you are not ensnared to follow after them (false gods) ...That you do not inquire after their gods saying we will do likewise. You shall not worship the Lord your God in that way.”
Today we see Israel captive to the western world system and being influenced by the entire world’s ungodliness. Soon the Jews will be released to enter their new spiritual Promised Land. They will be holy and clean. God will then destroy the current world system.
This has major implications for the world today. The ways of the world that have flowed into Israel have prevented them from going, holy and pure, into their new Promised Land of salvation.
Here is another amazing type revealed in the great Exodus:
►Pharaoh finally let God’s people go, but then changed his mind, pursued the children of Israel, and the Egyptian armies were killed in the Red Sea, as the Jews went on their way to the Promised Land. This is a type of the antichrist, making a peace covenant with Israel. He will then pursue them to his own detriment.
The Second Exodus is not complete yet. It will be soon, as Israel comes to salvation. Guess what is about to happen to the captors?
The world’s job in holding Israel back is just about done. Goodbye, cruel world!
This is one of the reasons why the world will not go back to normal, until it has been fully destroyed and then cleansed!
The world is about to get stoned, in a bit more than a puff of smoke. All the world’s empires are going to come crashing down suddenly as the Stone shatters their feet to pieces. (Daniel 2:34, Isaiah 60:12)
Isaiah 8:9-10 “Huddle together, O peoples, and be shattered; pay attention all you distant lands; prepare for battle and be shattered, prepare for battle and be shattered! Devise a plan, but it will be thwarted. State a proposal, but it will not happen, for God is with us.”
Zechariah 2:5 “For I, says the Lord, ‘will be a wall of fire around her (Jerusalem) and I will be the glory in her midst.’”
Tragically much of the western church has been dumbed down to the true things of God and of Bible prophecy, by their own dummies in the pulpit.
The youth of today have been dumbed down by the world and in many cases their own parents. They have been denied discipline and miss-educated, re-educated, with new age and new world thinking, devoid of God, creating a true lost generation, ready for hell.
The good news:
God makes things new! He made us new, He will make us newer. He will make Israel new. He will make the all things new. (Revelation 2:17, 3:12, 21:5)
The good news is God is just, holy and righteous and He is going to create just those characteristics forever in the entire universe, in which we will have full access.
In a constantly changing world you lose your sense of direction and stability. Only by hanging onto, and applying the age-old principles of the scriptures can this be fixed with peace and stability?
He is coming for a glorious church. Israel too will end up being glorious. He is coming soon! We will continue to watch and pray!
If there are any major, significant developments on the prophetic scene within the next week, I’ll report on them here in the “Prophetic News” section above. So stay tuned.
I will not report on or even mention, things that are of no prophetic consequence and there are many. I will also not report on the many things floating around today that are total error and a big distraction for the truth.

Edition 538: September 8th 2020.
Trumpets now or next!
The rapture, now or then!
Regular readers know that I (and many others) maintain that the rapture will take place on a Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah). In fact I have maintained that it is impossible for it to take place at any other time. Of course the big question is which Feast of Trumpets?
I began my journey into the Feasts of the Lord when I was about 2 years old! I grew up in a Jewish neighbourhood. My mother taught in a Hebrew nursery school, so I was thrust into Hebraic culture from the day dot. The fridge was often full of gefilter fish! But it really all came alive to me in the early 80s.
So the feasts are nothing new to me. I have shared on their importance since TPS began.
We are ten days away and closing in fast on this year’s two-day event.
It is still possible for us to fly away this Feast of Trumpets, but it is increasingly less likely.
The all important dispensation transition:
The seven feasts are in fact an astonishing, miraculous picture-type of the major world prophetic peaks. They reveal the great dispensation changes from the Old Covenant to the New, back to the culmination of the Old Covenant as seen in the seven year tribulation, and then the transition to the dispensation of the Millennium.
But here is the all-important, severe and critical point: The feasts annihilate and destroy anti-Semites and “Christians” in replacement theology!
Passover, Unleavened bread, Firstfruits and Pentecost, were prophetically fulfilled by the work of the cross, through to resurrection and the church age. These collectively relate to the church.
The Feast of Trumpets through Atonement to Tabernacles relates primarily to Jewish time, and the events of the tribulation, leading to the Millennium. (See diagram below.)
Many say that all the feasts were prophetically fulfilled by the church. You are then saying that the last three feasts (in blue below) have no required fulfilment by Israel. You are simply replacing Israel with the church, making you a pure proponent of cursed replacement theology.
We are now on the very doorstep of the great transition, just like the seasons, from one dispensation to the next. The big question now is: Are you truly saved?
The professing, confessing, non-born again, so-called Christians who will be left behind at the rapture will suddenly be faced with their most heart-wrenching question ever: “Why me? I’m not a Jew or a Muslim; I’m a Christian, why was I left behind?”
The rapture will reveal what real salvation is and isn’t. It will reveal how far from repentance the left-behind crowd are. It will reveal who truly loves the Lord and His word. It will reveal in an instant the shocking truth of God’s word. It will reveal who has sold their soul to the devil, knowingly or not.
Many Christian leaders say that the feasts are for the Jews and we have our own convocations, like Christmas and Easter. Of course they don’t know the origin of their pagan convocations. They were founded by the early Catholic church and introduced to keep the Jews out of the church.
The command of God is to make the Jews jealous and to take the gospel to them first, not keep them from the church! (Romans 1:16, 10:19)
Isaiah 57:14 “...Prepare the way, take the stumbling block out of the way of My people.”
The Bible speaks of one of the beasts of Daniel (Rome) being given power to deceive by changing times and seasons. This would refer to changing the Gregorian (Catholic) calendar, changing the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday and the introduction of Babylonian Christmas and Easter.
I was listening to a Messianic Rabbi the other day, bemoaning the terrible curse the church has inflicted on the Jews, by removing the feasts and replacing them with the pagan festivals of Easter and Christmas. He said there were very few Jews in Israel that would ever identify with and participate in these Babylonian pagan practises.
Jews had already been in Babylonian captivity once before!
Christians who participate in and support Christmas and Easter are participating in paganism. They do so because their good friend, the world does so very well.
The church has an amazing blind-spot in this area. The blind-spot has developed over time into a belief-bias. They think that Christmas and Easter are of God.
They have fallen for the group-speak of the world. Tragically, group-speak becomes group-permission and belief!
Here is one of many verses that kicks group-speak in the head:
2 Corinthians 10:12 “We dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves, but they, measuring themselves by themselves and comparing themselves among themselves are not wise.”
The verse below is the glorious opposite of the world’s group-speak, belief, and blind-spot bias:
Jeremiah 6:16-17 “Stand in the paths and see, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is, and walk in it, then you will find rest for your souls...They said, ‘we will not listen to the watchmen.’”
When Israel returns to the Lord, they will be pure and holy!
Zephaniah 1:4 “...Against the inhabitants of Jerusalem, I will cut off every trace of Baal from this place, the names of the idolatrous priests, with the pagan priests.” (Baal = pagan, Babylonian custom.)
Some key names and terms for the Feast of Trumpets:
The feast begins on one of two possible days, when the new moon is sighted. It is therefore called the feast of which no one knows the day or hour.
If I said to you that the rapture / tribulation start will occur on a Feast of Trumpets, I cannot be setting a day or hour!
Anyone who says the rapture will take place on a Feast of Trumpets can’t be accused of date-setting!
The feast takes place in the “twinkling of eye.” This is a Hebrew idiom referring to that brief time when the sun sets over the horizon, producing a last twinkling. Do you see the relevance?
The feast is also known as: The opening of the gates of heaven. (Psalm 118:19-20, Isaiah 26:2, Revelation 3:7) But Israel remains on earth to fulfil the final feasts prophetically, so who are the gates of heaven opened for? Hmmmm, I wonder!
The Feast of Trumpets always occurs on Tishrei 1st, the beginning of the Hebrew New Year. The word “Tishrei” means dissolving sins. It also means “you shall begin.” It is the time of the ultimate new beginning for Israel and the church in their new bodies and new locale – faaaaar away!
This feast is also known as the feast that confuses the devil, because of its variable starting date.
There are many more incredible factors, parallels and types. You will find some of them under the link on the right, headed “Editions by subject” and “Feasts of the Lord.”
The timing of the rapture / tribulation start:
Romans 11:25-26 “I do not desire brethren that you be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel, UNTIL the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And then all Israel will be saved.”
The word used for “come in” is Strong’s G1525: “Eiserchomai”. Meanings: To go into, as food enters the mouth; To arise and come into a new existence; To come to life.
We can write the verse this way: “Blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles (church) has gone in the rapture. And then all Israel will be saved...”
It is Israel that comes to life, and the church that comes to a new resurrection life – fully completed for ever!
The prophet Habakkuk asked the Lord: ‘How long, O lord, until these things (violence and treachery of the wicked) come about?’”
Habakkuk 2:2-3 “The Lord said, ‘write the vision and make it plain on the tablets that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak and will not lie...’”
We see that we can know the time. Note the Lord’s answer: “It will speak and not lie.”
That simply means that we are to wait until He speaks or shows us.
The Lord may speak within the next few days leading up to Trumpets. I am listening. I am also not going to lie and make up all sorts of things to make a case, when the Lord is silent on the issue right now.
Only the remnant few will be ready and go in the rapture. Many who think they are saved are not!
The glory of the Feast of Trumpets:
It is the only feast that recognises and identifies the end of the times of the Gentiles and the start of the time for the Jews.
It is the only feast that effectively condemns replacement theology.
The hidden gems in this ancient feast are truly marvellous and quite shocking for those who have been kept in the dark about it all by their church leaders.
The Feast of Trumpets is marked by 100 trumpet blasts in various patterns. The trumpet is the shofar. Some of these shofar blasts represent:
●The anniversary of the creation of the world. ●A call to repentance. ●Hearing God’s voice. ●Calling to Messiah to come quickly. ●The day of judgement to start. ●The ingathering of Israel. ●The awakening of the dead.
Have a look at this amazing, prophetic verse below. Note that masses will come to worship on the Temple Mount. That should tell you a thing or two about the future of the Mount!
Isaiah 27:13 “In that day, the great trumpet will be blown, they will come who are about to perish in the land of Assyria and they who are outcasts of Egypt, and shall worship in the holy mount at Jerusalem.”
Generally, I don’t put a lot of weight on things like this, but this is interesting so I will just touch on it:
From the Feast of Pentecost this year to the Feast of Trumpets, is 113 days. This number 113 represents the “long hot summer” and speaks symbolically of the length of the church age. Just to see what would come up, I typed into the search engine, “Prophetic meaning of 113” This is what came up: “The snatching away of the saints.”
Psalm 113:7-9 “He raises the poor out of the dust, and lifts the needy out of the ash heap, that He may seat him with princes – with the princes of His people.”
“Shortened day” – Wrong!
I have seen so many fancy, astronomical, mathematical, exercises of linguistic gymnastics trying to show how the days of the tribulation are shortened. (Matthew 24:22)
So severe will the tribulation be that people will seek death. It will be a time like never was, or ever shall be, in its terrible severity.
It will be so severe that the Bible says, the days will be “shortened” (That is an incorrect translation.) They will not be shortened. The days are clearly numbered, measured, given and determined. If it is shortened it is not seven years long.
The correct translation of the word “shortened” is “cut out in time.”
Once saved always saved – Wrong!
In these dangerous days where the suicide rate is dramatically escalating and many believers are giving up, it is important to address this subject now.
It’s always good to know what constitutes salvation and where the limits and boundaries are. It goes to your spiritual preparedness.
Those who claim ‘one saved always saved’ are doing you a disservice, as you drop your defences!
When you are truly born-again, the Bible says that nothing or no one can snatch you out of the Lord’s hands. This all goes to eternal security for the true believer. But there is one missing candidate in the verses that can cause you to lose your salvation.
It is you, yourself. You can willingly, by choice reject the Spirit of God from yourself.
You do not drift in and out of salvation. Sin does not cause you to lose your salvation, neither does a backslide. But beware of the following verse!
I have never heard an acceptable explanation for this frightening verse from any proponent of ‘once saved always saved’:
Hebrews 6:4-6 “It is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit (believers) and have tasted of the good word of God and powers of the age to come, if they fall away (complete), to renew then again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame.”
Not only does this verse show that you can lose your salvation, it shows that if you do, you can never get it back again! There are others like it too.
Revelation 3:5 “He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life, but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.” (This implies that you can have your name removed.)
Interestingly, the Bible says that sin has been removed by the cross. That is past tense. It is a done deal. The problem with sin in the believers life is that it resurrects what God has removed by the cross, effectively nullifying the work of the cross in that area!
Sin has been removed, but your resurrecting of it slowly eats into your very being. Walking in holiness is the way to go!
Too many come looking for salvation as a sort of sponsorship, or cheap insurance policy or some sort, like a commodity, but they will not die to self, the world and the demonic.
Then there are the untold masses who think they are saved, because they put their hand up in church and said a sinner’s prayer.
There are many fruits of salvation. “A tree is known by its fruit.” If you are truly saved it will be seen in your fruits and in your ongoing relationship to the world, the flesh and demonic, and of course, in your thinking:
►World: 1 John 5:4 “Whatever is born of God overcomes the world.”
►Demonic: 1 John 2:13 “You have known Him, and you have overcome the wicked one....”
► Flesh: Galatians 2:20 “I (self / flesh life) have been crucified with Messiah...He live through me.”
►Thinking: 1 Corinthians 2:16 “...We have the mind of Messiah.”
Salvation is free, but it is extremely costly. Salvation of the soul (not spirit) is where the work is required. Do you know the terror of the Lord? (2 Corinthians 5:11)
The good news is that when the blessed hope of our salvation is complete, we will be just like our Lord – fully glorified! (Romans 8:30, 1 John 3:2)
The trumpet / shofar of God is about to sound: Exodus 19:16 “The sound of the trumpet (shofar) was very loud, so that all the people that were in the camp trembled, and Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet with God...”
If it’s not this year, it will be next – stay tuned. I can assure that I will be keeping a very close, prayerful watch, and will keep you on the cutting edge too. Be blessed dear friends!

Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 537: September 1st 2020.
Knowing the time (Part 4)
The next few editions are critically important. I strongly suggest that you pay careful and close attention to every word. Of course, the previous “Knowing the time” editions are important as well. We are now in times of rapid prophetic fulfilment.
If you know your Bible very well, you will know the time!
●The Bible says our Lord will “show us things to come.” (John 16:13) ●The Bible says He will “show you things before they come to pass.” (John 14:29) ●The Bible says we are to “know the time” (It’s a command). (Matthew 24:32-33) ●The Bible says we are to “know the times and season.” (1 Thessalonians 5:1) ●The Bible says that a ripening fig tree (Israel) will show us when the end is near.” (Matthew 24:32)
●The Bible declares that the “secret things belong to the Lord, but other things He has revealed to us.” (Deuteronomy 29:29) ●The Bible says that He will “reveal these things to His sons, the prophets.” (Ephesians 3:5, Amos 3:7) ●The Bible says that “we are not in darkness that this day should overtake us.” (1 Thessalonians 5:4)
In this edition I will deal briefly with the arising of false prophets / watchmen. The duration and timing of the coming wars of prophecy, the nations involved, what weapons will be used, what the outcome will be and who is victor.
False teachers, prophets and watchmen:
The collective, compromised church has opened the door for the devil. They have empowered the god of this world to defeat the church if only partially.
The true church has an enormously high calling and responsibility. It is the guardian of morality, of culture and of truth. It is the light of the world.
1 Timothy 3:15 “That you might know how you ought to conduct yourself in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar, prop, support and foundation of truth.” (Amp)
Do you know what happens when you remove the pillar, prop, support and foundation of a building? It is not going to stand in the storms.
Over time the church has become consumed with the world’s materialism and how to be blessed with cars, boats, planes and lots of financial prosperity. Thankfully today, their superficial gospel has become so transparent it is exposing the mega-frauds in the pulpits.
(I believe in biblical prosperity and the need for certain material things, but it is the excessive over-balance and the manipulation involved that I’m at war with.)
With a focus on the very things Satan, as the god of this world, offered our Lord on the mountain of temptation, the church has accepted it all and failed to see the enemy coming in with his agenda.
The reason these days are dangerous is not just because of the onslaught of the evil one again Israel and the church, It is because the evil has secretly infiltrated some churches, like a cancer.
Vipers in the pulpits and their parrots in the pews have been singing “me, myself, I and my money.” The church has fought for money while its freedom is being eroded from under its nose.
How do you release the power of the devil into the church? – Just do nothing. As you lay down your spiritual armour and weapons, your focus shifts and the enemy becomes your friend. You become truly spiritually blind, and a sitting duck for the devil, or a falling Humpty.
Self is the god that displaces God in man. The un-crucified self has Satan in camouflage in the driving seat. A key to identifying self and his Satan in the church is the absence of the cross and holiness.
We are now seeing an abundance of false prophets and false watchmen, who see nothing but their own thoughts, in their blinded and confused eyes.
Identifying false prophets: They are seldom right. They never admit their error. They are self orientated, blind to the full truth, legalistic in opinions. They are soft on sin. They reject the authority of other mature solid men of God. They cause division. They do not have the fruit of the fullness of the Spirit. They use manipulative words. They are unable to see the damage they do to the prophetic word and the church. And much more!
Amazingly all these false watchmen never ever apologize for being continuously wrong and the damage they do.
Teachers must learn what is of prophetic significance and what is not.
The return of the cursed Nibiru:
The Revelation 12-sign teachers blindly followed each other in proclaiming that the world was to be annihilated by the planet Nibiru (twice the size of Jupiter) that was hurtling through space and due to strike the earth on some particular date, back then.
Of course it did not, or on any of the numerous other dates that they then put forward as impact date - because the planet does not exist.
Regular readers know that I warned of the curse attached to Nibiru over and over again.
Well, nothing has changed. Some watchmen / teachers have revived Niburu as a threat to the earth.
Nibiru is not a planet! It is a Babylonian satanic god who rides and arranges and organises the constellations to produce signs. He is the god of “crossing over” or “transition”. He was known in mythology as the “great heavenly sign”.
Nibiru is also known as Marduk, who brought the half human Annuaki hybrid humans to the earth when a giant planet approached and hung over the earth, to offload these hybrid humans in pre-adamic times. This is a counterfeit of the Adam and Eve story.
Marduk /Nibiru, was also known as “King of the earth,” because he stayed behind on the earth to create a “global human elite, with these new people when the UFO-like planet left the earth.
These Nibiru descendants were known in Egypt as the “guardian watchmen”. They were the watchmen of the signs in the stars. By the way, “Babylon” in Hebrew means “The gateway of the gods.”
One of gods of the Anunnaki people is “Anu” , known as the Great sky father, whose daughter was Ishtar (Easter)
There is much more to these myths and legends, but let me warn you that if you get into this stuff in any depth you are messing with strong curses. – Good luck!
So, why the return of the great Nibiru deception now, to the big fools?
It is because we are in the era of great deception, great evil signs, great misdirection, great lies and importantly, a UFO excuse for the rapture! “Nibiru took them”!!
Occultation is an astronomical term describing a situation when one object is obscured by another. It applies to the blind-spot area of the observer.
Many of these modern teachers and watchmen are under the spell of occultation!
Prophesied wars and Nuclear war:
Firstly, the coming wars, including WW111 are not the same as the war of Armageddon. The former occur just before or right at the start of the tribulation, while the latter is right at the end. But there are some similarities, which is why I have combined these wars in this discourse.
The reasons for the big wars to come are all related to Israel. In the war of Gog and Magog it is because the invading nations come to take plunder. This is primarily agricultural plunder, livestock and gold and silver, which relates to things of value.
But the primary reason is because God puts “hooks in the jaws” of Russia and draws them in! (Ezekiel 38:4)
By the way, many teachers are claiming that the nations allied with Israel, do nothing but sit on the sidelines and protest. (Ezekiel 38:13) But the protest “Have you come to take plunder,” can just as easily be a cause for their military involvement! In fact this is implied in the remaining verses.
The following verses speak of these prophesied, wars as taking place very suddenly.
Isaiah 29:5 “The multitude of your foes shall be like fine dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passes away, yes it shall be in an instant, suddenly.”
Jeremiah 6:26 O daughter of My people, clothe yourselves in sackcloth and roll about in ashes! Make mourning as for an only son, and most bitter lamentation, for the plunderer will suddenly come upon us.”
Revelation 18:8 “Her plagues will come in one day – death and mourning and famine, and she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.”
►The following verses imply nuclear warfare. If not, they relate to massive destruction:
Zechariah 14:12 “The people who fought against Jerusalem will be struck. Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, and their eyes and their tongues.”
Zechariah 5:1-11 The entire discourse relates to possible nuclear war. (More in Edition 206. HERE)
Isaiah 13:13 “I will shake the heavens and the earth will move out of its place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts in His fierce anger.”
Isaiah 66:15-16 “The Lord will come with fire and with His chariots like a whirlwind, to render His anger with fury and His rebuke with flames of fire...The slain of the Lord shall be many.”
Ezekiel 39:9, 12 “Those who dwell in the cities of Israel shall go out and set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and arrows, the javelins and spears, and they will make fires with them for seven years...For seven months the house of Israel will be burying them, in order to cleanse the land.”
Micah 1:4 “The mountains will melt under Him, and the valleys will split like wax before the fire...”
Joel 2:29-30 “...I will pour out My Spirit in those days, and I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, fire, and pillars (column) of smoke.”
The original word for “pillar / column” is: Strong’s H8490, “Tiymarah”. Meanings: Column, pillar with smoke at the top like a palm tree. (More in Edition 206. HERE)
Ezekiel 38:9 “You will ascend coming like a storm, covering the land like a cloud, you and all your troops and many peoples with you.”
Ezekiel 38:16 The war of Gog and Magog sees the enemy nations, “a mighty army coming against Israel like a cloud to cover the land.”
These two verses above are a clear reference to air-power.
Joel 2:20 “I will no longer make you (Israel) a reproach among the nations. I will remove far from you the northern army (Russia) and will drive him away into a barren and desolate land, with his face towards the eastern sea and his back towards the western sea. His stench will come up, and his foul odour shall rise, because he has done monstrous things.”
The duration and end outcome of the war:
The antichrist is not seen in WW111 (Gog & Magog) while he is at Armageddon. Yeshua is not seen at WW111, while He is at Armageddon, standing on the Mount of Olives.
►Ezekiel 38:8 Maintains that this war takes place when Israel is “dwelling safely”.
This original word is “betach” and can mean a feeling or sense of safety. Today those returning to Israel do so because they feel safe.
►Ezekiel 38:11 maintains that the war occurs when Israel is a “land of un-walled villages, without bars and gates.”
This term is comparative. In Ezekiel’s days, almost every city and village had a large wall around it with secure big heavy gates that were closed at night. This has not been the case for modern Israel at all. The verse in no way refers to the barriers to keep Palestinian militants out.
Ezekiel 39:9 speaks of a period of seven years for the burning of the weapons used in this war. That implies nuclear weapons, but it also gives us a substantial clue to the duration of the war. The war would obviously have ended at the time the seven year cleaning up begins. That means the duration of the war was extremely short.
The war occurs when Israel has been regathered in the later times / end-days. The results of the war see the spiritual awakening of Israel. (Ezekiel 39:29) So we know that it is in our day and has not happened yet.
We see the same outcome here with the Psalm 83 war, which is why I maintain that it has not occurred yet. It may well be part of the Ezekiel 38 &39 war. Note the outcome in the verse below:
Psalm 83:18 (End of war) “Men will then know that You, whose name alone is Lord, are the Most High over all the earth.”
Ezekiel 38:23 “I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the Lord.” (Ezekiel 39:7, 21)
We know that the tribulation period will be filled with war. We know that the end outcome of the tribulation will be the ultimate victory of our Lord and His “battle axe” – Israel. We know that the end outcome of the tribulation will be the Millennium of peace.
The Bible makes it clear that huge numbers of Jews and Gentiles will be saved in the tribulation. We know that the salvation of the Jews goes into overdrive right through the tribulation period.
The greatest end results of all these wars will be the sudden eye-opening, veil-removing and salvation of the Jews, so that they can become God’s great evangelists throughout the rest of the tribulation period.
The wars happen suddenly. The eye opening to Messiah happens suddenly! What incredible drama!
Isaiah 66:8 “Who has heard of such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? As soon as Zion travailed (tribulation) she gave birth to her children...Rejoice with Jerusalem...”
(Let me say again, that this verse above is not the church being born-again as the blind Revelation 12-sign teachers, and other proponents of cursed replacement theology teach. It speaks of Israel!)
Zechariah 3:9 “...I will remove the iniquity of that land (Israel) in one day.”
The ultimate victorious outcome of all future prophesied wars is right here:
Deuteronomy 33:29 “Happy are you O Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by the Lord, the shield of your help and the sword of your majesty! Your enemies shall submit to you, and you shall tread down the high places.”
Only a dispensational, Zionist Judeo Christian biblical worldview works, with all the pieces of the puzzle fitting together perfectly.
In this edition I have presented to you the very likely order of very soon-coming events, with numerous verses to back up each major point. There may be some variety in the order, but it won;t be much.
In all of this you can and must live in peace. Ultimate, everlasting peace is the final outcome of all the drama. But you can walk it now to an extent. Die to self, the world and the demonic and you are free and at peace!
This is one of my early elephant paintings combined with one of my eagle photographs.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 536: August 25th 2020.
Knowing the time (Part 3)
We are in the era of the forerunners of the four riders of the apocalypse. These four riders will bring with them great tribulation, troubles death and dramas. They are also seen as the “seal judgements” being opened by our Lord, for release, in the Revelation.
The Bible is a powerful road map showing us the end from the beginning. (Isaiah 46:10) God also reveals to a few of His servants the timing of these end-time things.
The characteristics of this time period:
It is very important to know the devil’s devices and to know what is about to transpire and why, so that we may know the time and know how to avoid the pitfalls. We must know and take hold of God’s provisions for us through His word and His gifts of the Spirit.
Things are dovetailing together now, or should we say, vulture-tailing!
The greatest end time sign is deception. Our Lord warned of it numerous times, specifically related to these end days. We are not in the tribulation yet, but we are in the forerunner period.
We are seeing deception increase at a phenomenal rate.
Matthew 24:24-25 “False christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders, so as to deceive, if possible even the elect, see I have told you beforehand.”
Daniel 8:25 “Through his cunning he (antichrist) shall cause deceit to prosper under his hand, and he shall magnify himself (pride) in his heart. He shall destroy many in their prosperity (peace). He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without human hand.”
Revelation 13:14 “He (antichrist) performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.”
Great signs and wonders are not always a sign of the truth. Correct doctrine is.
We are now in the post-God, me - now era. This of necessity means we are in the post-truth era. How true that is! It. Pride’s doctrine is: “I am”, “I will”, “me now.”
Biblical doctrine must be divisive. Truth must sting like a bee. It must take exception to a world of error! It must take you down, clean you up, reconstruct you, and then lift you up. That is the work of the cross.
Deceptions works through: Pride, Laziness, ignorance, renouncing the truth, false doctrine, demons, occult, curses, elevating traditions of man, elevating the group speak of peers and the world.
We need a plumbline of truth so that we can build our lives according to its truth.
Identifying deception’s food – pride:
At this time, the pride of man is a pandemic! That is a mark of the times. Today pride is ultra-dangerous. It is spiritually charged like never before.
Pride always rejects the work of the cross. It is, “you can do it, and yes you can.” It is, “me now” gone to pot. It is self glorified.
How to identify a minister or ministry full of pride: ●They have very little to say or teach on the power of the cross. ●They will speak a lot about themselves and what they think, and their own experiences. ●The living power of the Spirit of God will be absent. ●They will be full of error with no repentance. ●Normally, they are not baptised in the Spirit and even come against it.
You can tell which teacher of the word to trust. ●They must have a track record of being right and not wrong especially about prophecy. ●They must know the Bible backwards, but also know the author – the – the Spirit of God. ●They must be free from hobby-horse doctrines. ●They must produce healthy, good fruit that endures, amongst their flock.
They will be in agreement with other solid, safe Spirit-led Bible teachers and ministers.
Be careful of those who are never regarded but the deep, mature teachers and leaders. We need the plurality of mature elders, to be in agreement. (Not necessarily on every minor point.)
The Spirit of truth is your great friend, lover and comforter. The spirit of error is your secret enemy, masquerading as your friend. He truly hates you.
►The great big fruit of truth is being right with God.
►The big fruit of the spirit of error is being wrong!
►Error attaches itself like a virus to the pride in man.
►Humility opens the door for God. Pride shuts it and opens the door for Satan.
►There is always great peace in holiness, because holiness is of God.
►There is great stress in sin because sin is of its god Satan.
►Sin’s god is Satan. Sin is service to Satan.
If you think the truth will just descend upon you in these days, because you’re special or something, think again. You must fight for (contend for) the faith. (Jude 1:3)
A teacher in pride attracts like-minded little exclusive clublets called “the wrong brigade.” They feed off each other. They can’t take correction. They bite when rebuked.
In their pride these teachers can’t see their own failures. Far too many have a false idea of their self-importance, thinking that they are God’s voice for the entire church!
Most of the “always wrong brigade” never learns. They keep coming back with more harm to inflict on the gullible, and the new Christian. They think they are serving God.
►Do you really think God is going to give someone who is always wrong, and who is ignorant of the entire Bible a great message for the whole church?
Dressed up deception:
Deception has many dresses. The dangerous, ugly dresses have “truth” emblazoned all over the garment. It is only when the Spirit of God shows you the power of deception, in the various manifestation of pride, and its evil power – sin, then you can be free.
There is an available power that comes to believer through the application of the cross. There is a power of evil deception that comes through the failure to apply the cross. (1 Corinthians 1:18, Philippians 3:10)
Listen for the key words of deception in a minister. They will often be words or behaviour of pure manipulation. Be careful of people who always go outside of the scriptures for their “truth”. That amounts to condemned, “private interpretation.” (2 Peter 1:20)
100% of rapture dreams and rapture utterances prefaced with, “the Lord told me,” have been wrong. Every single one! None have come to pass in spite of the many who preface their garbage with: “It’s 100% for sure!”
Being repeatedly wrong on rapture predictions cheapens the entire doctrine and identifies you as a wolf-crier, not a watchman. It demonstrates perfectly that you have no biblical authority or Spirit leading.
If a watchman sees the wrong thing he shoots himself and the people in the foot.
1 Corinthians 14:8 “If a trumpet makes an uncertain sound, who will prepare for battle?”
Jeremiah 5:31 “The prophets prophecy falsely, and the priest rule by their own power; and My people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end.”
Those who don’t know the time of the Lord’s coming are described by God Himself in His word. He calls them “blind guides,” “the wicked servant”
But in all these things, don’t go into the ditch on the other side of the road, rejecting all watchmen. Keep a solid Spirit led approach and focus.
Replacement theology disguised:
At this time you need to steer clear of all those portraying doctrines of replacement theology, even in partial form, because there is a most powerful evil spiritual, demonic force behind it.
Firstly, I’m not into naming names, unless the Lord says so, but I most certainly will name, identify and come against false doctrine or the spirit of error.
The Revelation 12-sign teachers were all wrong. Today some still flog that dead dangerous horse of subliminal replacement theology.
Almost every verse used by the Revelation 12-sign crowd was in error. It was replacement theology from beginning to end, with many dangerous, cursed deceptions thrown in like Nibiru.
If you read the surrounding context of their verses, you will see that they apply to Israel and not the church. Isaiah 66:8 was the classic. (Read it and the following verses.)
The church is not in the book of Revelation after chapter 4. So why then has the church replaced Israel in chapter 12, according to the Revelation 12-sign teachers?
The warning is that replacement theology grows deadly ugly legs!
There is a danger in getting the feasts of the Lord wrong too.
Those who say the seven feasts have all been fulfilled in the events of the cross are obviously proponents of subliminal replacement theology. The Feast of Trumpets marks the dispensation shift from the church age to Israel’s time – the tribulation period.
Every single proponent of a post-tribulation rapture ignores the feasts, because they signal the dispensation shift at “trumpets.”
If you claim that the Feast of Trumpets has already been fulfilled, you are getting rid of Israel’s time.
If you dislike the Jews, be very careful, because you will be led to the Christian Hitler in the pulpit or on YouTube, where you will find many verses being stamped with an invisible Swastika. You will find no cross of Calvary being presented, but the modern gas chambers of replacement theology!
It’s a good idea to set your heart to love and choose what God has!
The only way to be truly safe and protected from becoming anti-Semitic with its terrible consequences is by knowing God’s prophetic word on Israel. If not, you do and will know the word of the world and its god, and him you will follow!
Joshua 11:20 “It was of the Lord to harden their hearts, that they should come against Israel in battle, the He might utterly destroy them, and that they might receive no mercy, but that He might destroy them, as the Lord had commanded Moses.”
The hookers are coming:
Israel, it’s your time. The great clock of ages is ticking. The great clock signalling the big dispensation change is casting its beautiful, fearful and golden light over your ancient walls and gates – about to open to your Messiah – our Messiah!
The Prince of peace is coming, but only after the hookers!
The hookers are coming with big hooks to hooks in the jaws, to draw the people into war! The fateful hooks of great terror will draw the nations into the battle ground of WW111. (Ezekiel 38:4, 29:4-5)
Whichever way you look at it, this war is coming, ready or not, peace treaty or not!
The world cries for peace, but I say: “Peace, peace when there is no peace.” (Jeremiah 6:14)
The true Christian can be likened to an invisible spy in the enemy’s war room! We know what is coming. War and then peace is the set of the clock.
We are now seeing a most important forerunner. It is the forerunner of the antichrist peace treaty. This is the smaller Arab / Israeli peace deals. It is a forerunner of the big one, but not the big one yet.
We have seen the forerunners of locust plagues, famine and disease. The big forerunner still to run is war. The big one, WW111, can blast onto the scene any day now.
Staggering insights into WW111:
Ezekiel 38 speaks of this war in which Russia and her allies come against Israel and her allies. But as we look further into Ezekiel 39, we see how this war will end and what will be the consequences. We see some remarkable things relating to the timing of it!
“Fire is sent on Magog and the coastlands. The dead bodies cover the mountains of the Golan. It takes seven years to clean up after the war and seven months to bury the dead, just where they fell, implying some sort of radiation. (Ezekiel 39:9, 12)
Ezekiel 39:22-29 “So the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day forward. The Gentiles shall know...I will not hide My face from them anymore, for I shall have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel.”
As this war ends, we see Israel being saved en masse. As the war ends, even some Gentile nations recognise the hand of God in it all.
This war is not Armageddon, which is ended by the Second Coming. This war is ended by Israel and the veil being lifted off the eyes of the Jews.
For this reason and others, I say that this war will take place right at the start of the tribulation period or just before. Hundreds of other verses reveal that the salvation of the Jews goes into overdrive for the seven-year period.
Do you see what this means? We are close! Israel, it’s your time!!
The wise will heed the warnings, and get, and be ready.
The world is about to get frog marched, with many doing the goose step, with controlling hooks in jaws, while wolves in pulpits, left behind, howl as they all ride the storm of tribulation, charging to disaster.
Isaiah 42:6 “I the Lord have called you (Israel) in righteousness, and will hold your hand. I will keep you and give you as a covenant to the people, as a light to the Gentiles.”
Isaiah 60:3 “The Gentiles shall come to your light and kings to the brightness of your rising.”
All the troubles today and soon to come are because of the world’s rebellion to God.
Life’s biggest mistake is to ignore the warnings of God.
The police, the military and all authorities are being made impotent, defrocked and defunded. “The office of the authorities is of God.” (Romans 13:1-2) What a surprise the liberal left brigade has coming: You don’t defund God!
The Spirit-less church is a dead temple made with dead stones and dead hands. Babylon and its tower were made with man-made bricks and mortar, while the temple in Jerusalem was made with stone not cut near the temple. This speaks of God made stone and man’s futility. (1 Kings 6:7, Acts 17:24)
Best is to do things God’s way!
Psalm 33:10-11 “The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing. He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect. The counsel of the Lord stands forever.”
Psalm 46:6 “The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved. He uttered His voice and the earth melted. The Lord of hosts, the God of Jacob (Israel) is our fortress.”
World, you will soon be lamenting: Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away!
World, the ominous writing is on the wall. You have been weighed in the balances and found wanting. The harbinger of your destruction has spoken.
The prophetic clock is ticking, chiming, and alarming, the pendulum swings ominously. The hour hand approaches the dreaded midnight hour and the minute hand proclaims the end.
I took the background picture in one of our giant sycamore tree forests and inserted the Namaqualand flowers.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
