RAPTURE RAMIFICATIONS

Hello again folks! Whether you are Pre-Trib; Mid-Trib; Post-Trib or [like me] Pre-Wrath; the mass media news stories regarding the [so-called] 'predicted' rapture time and date as espoused by one Harold Camping as 18:00 [in various time zones] on Saturday 21-May-2011 have certainly grabbed the attention of many.

But I will not join the chorus and ridicule this man. The Biblical test of a True Prophet of God is 100% accuracy and Mr. Camping has already failed this in 1994 when he falsely prophesied a similar event. Hence I an not in the least surprised. In other words; he is a false prophet and one of many to appear in these Last Days But what this gentleman has done [as did 'Pastor' Terry Jones when he threatened to burn a koran or two] is have the True tenets of Christianity [and by extension its eschatology] misunderstood and mocked by a deceived and lost world:


So; on one hand the world now has visibility of an event that is coming its way in reality; in yet future days. But on the other hand; many non-believers will now mock; ignore and frankly be totally inattentive to the coming chaos as detailed in Revelation [the book of 'revealings']. Sadly; many folks in their churches of 'Churchianity' are also ignorant and are not taught about future days Truthfully.

Hence any True prophet or prophecy will be mocked and ignored too; specifically those in the Word. Is it any wonder then that the LORD said: "... when these things occur ..." - folks being married and being given in marriage et al - the REAL event WILL take them by surprise in a 'Peter and the wolf' sort of fashion. They will then believe yet another lie and be further deceived by those 'leaders' left behind.

Indeed; those raptured or 'caught up' [rapizo] will be taken: "... in the twinkling of an eye ..." and that the LORD will come like: "... like a thief in the night ...". The terminology used here speaks of suddenness and speed and secrecy. It will not be pre-advertized on Twitter or Facebook or CNN or BBC news bulletins or most folks calendars. So when most folks wake up on Sunday morning still in one piece; they will lump True Christians in with the ilk of Harold Camping et al; making it just that bit harder to witness the Truth but at the same time leading some to rely ever more on the leading of the Holy Spirit than their own soulish endeavour and enthusiasm.

And as I always say folks: DECEPTION is the name of the game in the Last Days. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

God bless you and God bless Israel ... KJS ... 21-May-2011

A WORD FOR CONSIDERATION

Hello again folks! My uncle-in-law; friend and brother John Elson has asked me to publish this Word he received a while back for your perusal and Berean consideration; especially in light of my recent posting of Lance Lambert's prophecy and the death of David Wilkerson. As with all these things; please pray; test and seek the Lord yourselves with regard to these words:

"Time, like the hour glass, is approaching its end. The great awakening will hit the inhabitants of the world; All will experience the time of Jacob's troubles. All except the elect; the church who make up the Bride of Christ will surely be taken in the rapture. There has never been such urgency for My people to make themselves ready! Look up when you see all the events climaxing; for your Redeemer is near. Be not anxious or afraid but say in your heart: Come Lord Jesus." [end quote]

And as I always say folks: DECEPTION is the name of the game in the Last Days. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

God bless you and God bless Israel ... KJS ... 18-May-2011

ADDRESSING THE METHODIST CHURCH STANCE AGAINST ISRAEL

Hello again folks! With many thanx to my friend Sally Richardson. If ever you wanted an example of the absolute folly of what I term: 'Churchianity' and to see what happens when a movement that starts so well on the right motives and doctrine but then truly goes off the rails; then you only have to look at the stance of the Methodist Church in Britain against the Jewish state of Israel. They should be reminded that the LORD Jesus Christ is Jewish and of the role of Israel in the forthcoming 'last days'. But I think that this open letter to the "General Secretary of the Methodist Church and Connexial Team" by Gerald Oberman is fantastic and right to the point. I say this as someone who attended a Methodist church in the 1990's and was alarmed back then at the state of Wesley's heritage. Read on folks and applaud Mr. Oberman:

"Dear Sir, In your annual conference you have passed a policy calling for a boycott of goods from “illegal” Israeli 'West Bank' settlements”. You claim this is not anti-Semitic. But how else do you explain this strange obsession with Israel? What about the Chinese occupation of Tibet, or the Sudanese slaughter in Darfur, persecution in Zimbabwe and elsewhere?

Politically, one could probably compile a case for a boycott against just about every country on the planet, but the only country in the world being subjected to a call for a boycott is Israel. The so-called 'West Bank' has been Jewish for more than 3,000 years. A large part was known as Judea. Jesus, a Jew, was born there. Who do you imagine lived in Judea, if not the Jews? Who lived in Hebron but the Hebrews? The name Bethlehem is Hebrew. Only the Jews, of all the people in the world, living in their own land, are besmirched by being called illegal settlers.

Israel is monstrously depicted as Apartheid, notwithstanding the fact that one fifth of her population is Israeli Arab with full rights. The Palestinians claim the 'West Bank' as theirs and require the land to be Juden Frei. And just who are the “Palestinians”? Palestine has never existed as an autonomous entity. There is no language known as Palestinian. There is no distinct Palestinian culture. There has never been a land known as Palestine governed by Palestinians. There has never been a King of Palestine. Palestinians are Arabs, indistinguishable from Jordanians, Syrians, Lebanese, Iraqis, etc. The "Palestinian" leader Yasser Arafat was an Egyptian. They have no claim on the 'West Bank'. Israel is not wrongfully "occupying" or “settling” anything. Israel is currently the subject of a demonisation and misinformation campaign put out by Arab sources and propelled with a strong anti-Semitic undercurrent. The Arab world is spewing out anti-Semitism unequalled since the Hitler era. It is so pervasive, many Jews are being infected. Israel is portrayed as the most evil state on the planet.

Why are you so obsessed with Israel, yet say nothing about the persecution of Christians? According to Justus Reid Weiner, an international human rights lawyer, the dwindling Christian communities in Palestinian-run territories are likely to dissipate completely within the next 15 years as a result of increasing Palestinian maltreatment: "The systematic persecution of Christian Arabs living in Palestinian areas is being met with nearly total silence by the international community, human rights activists, and the media".

Your boycott of Israeli “settlements” is, of course, the prelude to a boycott of all Israel. I trust you are preparing a complete boycott of everything coming out of Israel. Check all your medications. An Israeli company has developed a simple blood test that distinguishes between mild and more severe cases of Multiple Sclerosis. So, if you know anyone suffering from MS, tell them to ignore the Israeli patent that may, more accurately, diagnose their symptoms.

An Israeli-made device helps restore the use of paralysed hands. This device electrically stimulates the hand muscles, providing hope to millions of stroke sufferers and victims of spinal injuries. If you wish to remove this hope of a better quality of life to these people, go ahead and boycott Israel. Young children with breathing problems will soon be sleeping more soundly, thanks to a new Israeli device called the 'Child Hood'. This innovation replaces the inhalation mask with an improved drug delivery system that provides relief for child and parent. Please tell anxious mothers that they shouldn't use this device because of your passionate cause. These are just a few examples of how people have benefited medically from Israeli research and developments. Boycotts often affect research. A new research centre in Israel hopes to throw light on brain disorders such as depression and Alzheimer's disease. The Joseph Sangol Neuroscience Center in the Sheba Medical Center at Tel Ha Shomer Hospital, aims to bring thousands of scientists and doctors to focus on brain research.

A researcher at Israel's Ben Gurion University has succeeded in creating human monoclonal antibodies which can neutralize the highly contagious smallpox virus without inducing the dangerous side effects of the existing vaccine. Two Israelis received the 2004 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Doctors Ciechanover and Hershko's research and discovery of one of the human cells most important cyclical processes will lead the way to DNA repair, control of newly produced proteins, and immune defence systems. The Movement Disorder Surgery program at Israel's Hadassah Medical Centre has successfully eliminated the physical manifestations of Parkinson's disease in a select group of patients with a deep brain stimulation technique.

For women who undergo hysterectomies each year for the treatment of uterine fibroids, the development in Israel of the 'Ex Ablate 2000 System' is a welcome breakthrough, offering a non-invasive alternative to surgery. Israel is developing a nose drop that will provide a five year flu vaccine. These are just a few of the projects that you can help stop with your Israel boycott.

Most of Windows operating systems were developed by Microsoft-Israel. So, throw away your computer. Computers should have a sign attached saying 'Israel Inside'. The Pentium NMX Chip technology was designed at Intel in Israel. Both the Pentium 4 microprocessor and the Centrum processor were entirely designed, developed, and produced in Israel.

Voice mail technology was developed in Israel. The technology for the AOL Instant Messenger ICQ was developed in 1996 in Israel by four young Israeli whiz kids. Both Microsoft and Cisco built their only Research and Development facilities outside the US in Israel. Get rid of your mobile phone. This technology was also developed in Israel by Motorola which has its biggest development centre in Israel. Most of the latest technology in your mobile phone was developed by Israeli scientists.

Part of your personal security rests with Israeli inventiveness, borne out of our urgent necessity to protect and defend our lives from the terrorists you support. A phone can remotely activate a bomb, or be used for tactical communications by terrorists, bank robbers, or hostage-takers. It is vital that official security and police have access to cellular jamming and detection solutions. Israel's Net line Communications Technologies has the security expertise to help the fight against terror. Israel has the highest concentration of hi-tech companies outside of Silicon Valley. Israel has more museums per capita. Israel has the second highest publication of new books per capita.

Relative to population, Israel is the largest immigrant absorbing nation on earth. These immigrants come in search of democracy, religious freedom or expression, economic opportunity, and quality of life. Israel is the only country in the world which had a net gain in the number of trees last year. Israel is making a massive contribution to the world, including the Palestinians - and to you - in science, medicine, communications and security. Pro-rata for population, Israel is making a greater contribution than any other nation on earth.

And what is the Arab world doing? Buying rockets and missiles and threatening to wipe Israel off the face of the earth. The call by your church to boycott Israel, which is the intention, reeks of the stench of anti-Semitism. You should all hang your heads in shame."
[end quote]

Well said and well written Mr. Oberman! And remember folks that the absolute worst deceivers are those who are already deceived themselves. DECEPTION is the name of the game in the Last Days. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

RECENT PROPHECY: LANCE LAMBERT [17/04/11]

Hello again folks! I would like to share this interesting Word given to and by Lance Lambert over in Jerusalem on Sunday 17-April-2011. These words should be taken very seriously ... Lance Lambert is a sound man of God in this writer's personal opinion. And ... as with ALL prophecies ... testing by the Word is required as is patience looking toward fulfilment:

"It is well with you that you intercede for Israel that she be saved, for it is My purpose to save her. I will complete the circle of Redemption that began with Abraham and My promise that a great nation would come forth from him, and that in him would all the families of the earth be blessed. And so it has happened! For Israel became the vehicle through which my Word has come to all the nations; and also My Salvation; and the knowledge of My Purpose. From this nation, above all, came the Messiah. Soon the fullness of the gentiles will have been saved, and I will turn again to Israel; to My Jewish People. They shall be re-ingrafted into their own olive tree, and My promise to Abraham will be gloriously fulfilled. Then their hardness of heart will melt, their blindness will be turned into sight, and their suffering to radiant Glory. This is my determined purpose, and I shall not be turned from it. It will be shortly begin to be fulfilled. I will turn all their weakness into unbelievable power, and I will use this nation as the last witness to the world as to Who I am.

Take very seriously what is taking place in the Arab world. It is no good for Israel! It is not a move toward freedom and democracy, but an enormous gain for militant Islam. They will seek to annihilate and liquidate Israel, but they will not only fail - their strength and power will be broken, and a huge harvest of souls will be saved amongst them.

Hear Me, I call you to intercession! It will not be easy. All the powers of My enemy are centred and focused on stopping this people from coming into My Redemption and Salvation. But he will fail! I look therefore for those who will stand in the gap, who will build up the wall; those who will stand in the place of intercession.

Shortly also I will begin more serious judgement on the Western nations. I will bring them to nothing; I will turn them upside down; I will grind them to powder. They will not know what has hit them. It will seem as if there is nothing left of what once I worked in those nations; especially the Super power. I will bring it to weakness; she will no longer be super, but a pity of the nations.

Hear this Word of Mine. I call you to intercede for those who belong to Me in those nations; that they will be saved from it! Hear this cry. My heart yearns for those who belong to Me, that they might be clear in their understanding, clear in the way they are to walk in the midst of all this. Do hear Me! For I speak to you who love Me, and who have this morning remembered Me. I do not desire judgement, but judgement of the most serious and devastating kind will fall upon those nations. Hear this Word from Me, and obey My call to intercession!"
[end quote]

I thought it of interest for you guys to read the above words and consider them prayerfully. DECEPTION is the name of the game in the Last Days. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

THE UNPEACEFUL PEOPLE

Hello again folks! I note with interest that the [so-called] 'palestinians' in the Gaza strip are decrying the death of one Osama Bin Laden. These are the self same people who openly celebrated on their streets the 9/11 terror attacks in the USA. They are the people who when recently polled about the vicious and cowardly murder [including the stabbing of a three [3] month old baby] of five [5] members of the Fogel family in Itamar [not unsurprisingly under-reported by the mass media]. These are also the folks who also voted in Hamas for their 'government' who then promptly threw members of their vanquished muslim compatriots Fatah from their own roof tops. May I also add that as of today; Hamas and Fatah have now signed a 'unity deal' to promote the destruction of the 'Zionist entity' in line with the goals and terminology of their islamic allies in Iran. The only unity that they can agree on is to follow the precepts of the koran to destroy the Jewish people and their allies.

It seems to this writer that the 'palestinians' delight to protest international justice but they celebrate international terrorism. Note that these are the people whom the UN; the EU; Tony Blair and the [so-called] Quartet want to be 'peace partners' with Israel!

But thank God that His Word shall prevail over the vain plotting and downright evil thoughts of fallen man as he himself is deceived by the enemy of their souls. Can you see the folly of man? Is it any wonder that the Lord shall hold them in derision one day soon.

DECEPTION is the name of the game in the Last Days. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

TEARS IN HEAVEN

Hello again folks! Most people look at the end-times prophecies of the Bible with either fear or trepidation. Some [quite rightly!] view it with hope and anticipation. A few years back; I preached on the subject of : "Tears in Heaven". And this last weekend I was reminded or urged or poked to present it again via this particular forum. Back in 2001 I asked this question: "What tears will need wiping away in Heaven?". Of course; these could be the tears of receiving full and True Salvation and/or the joy of meeting up with old friends et al. Now please read the following four [4] scriptures:

"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away."
[Revelation 21:4]

"The womb shall forget him; the worm shall feed sweetly on him; he shall be no more remembered; and wickedness shall be broken as a tree."
[Job 24:20]

Let them be before the LORD continually, that He may cut off the memory of them from the earth." [Psalm 109:15]

"For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind."
[Isaiah 65:17]

What I want to put across today is this. The Bible tells us that upon reaching the eternal state of Salvation; we will know all things fully [to paraphrase a portion of I Corinthians 13]. That sadly means that we will also remember unsaved family members; friends; colleagues and even enemies. Imagine the pain of remembering forever those beloved acquaintances who you encountered; lived with and loved during your lifetime who were not born again? It is my personal belief; that in part; the above scriptures are not meant to frighten and threaten. They are meant to comfort. I believe that it is possible that God in His mercy will wipe away our memories not only of pain and grief ... but He will also heal our recollections. He wants us to look forward and not backward.

The flip side of this is that those souls who end up in Hades may well remember their unforgiven sins and lives forever knowing that not only are they damned; but that they are doomed to be be forgotten for eternity too - and by all the [saved] folks that they lived their lives with. We are told of worms; fire; angst and regret in the Word but the possibility of abject loneliness and abandonment is - to this writer - just as bad; if not worse because God intended us for fellowship amongst other things. We are social beings.

I write this to comfort those who are saved and have a burden for all those unsaved folks who daily surround them. I also write this because in these truly dark days; we possibly require even further motivation to reach out and tell forth the True Gospel - while we still have the [so-called] 'freedom' to do so. If ever there were some new material for you to preach with - then here it is!

DECEPTION is the name of the game in the Last Days. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

SAINTHOOD; BEAUTIFICATION AND DECEPTION

Hello again folks! If ever one wanted to see just how unbiblical; downright Babylonian and spiritually dark the doctrines of the roman catholic church are then you must must shudder like me when you see all the hype in the news today over the 'beautification' of the former; deceased Pope John John Paul II:


Our ultimate Authority  and Source of reference is the Word. And the Word [The Holy Bible] tells us that: "... it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment ..." [Hebrews 9:27]. That judgement is by the Lord Jesus Christ and not a pseudo-religious organization of fallen men twisting and jerking the Word of God into "... doctrines of demons ...". Exhuming a coffin and then performing irreligious  mantras over it for the sake of false doctrine is indeed a stink in God's nostrils.

Karol Józef Wojtyła was a fallen man like you and me. None of us can earn credit[s] with God on our own merits. Indeed, True Salvation is the GIFT of God and you cannot earn a gift! The Bible teaches us that any believer who leaves this life in a right standing with their Maker is a saint. Honouring the dead in this fashion is no different than the practice of trying to talk to them and is wholly dishonouring to God.

I feel so very sad yet angry that such a huge multitude of folks will gather to 'celebrate' this grand deception today - in the presence of such 'dignitaries' as Robert Mugabe. The fields are indeed white for harvest. The problem is that there is a field of True Salvation and a field of destruction.

Roman catholics need True Salvation as much as Jews; muslims; Jehovah's Witnesses; Mormons; atheists et al. But are we up for it? Really?

DECEPTION is the name of the game in the Last Days. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

God bless you and God bless Israel ... KJS ... 01-May-2011
