In for the Kill

#374: Hello again folks! Some time ago I wrote a series of blogs on the subject of the ELO song "Honest Men" written by Eric Troyer. I was listening recently to the re-mastered 1986 ELO album "Balance Of Power"; specifically to a 'bonus' track called "In For The Kill". Some folks often comment on my like of the music of said band and any question is a good question. Watching the G20 Summit the other day and knowing what I know about the NWO; Illuminati and Biblical end-time prophecy about 'the kings of the earth' et al; I thought it of no coincidence that I listened to this particular song; written by Jeff Lynne. These lyrics are remarkably incisive:

"Listen to the money talk, Listen to it scream, Only lots of paper but it haunts them in their dreams, Doesn't matter who they are, doesn't matter where, Some people can't get enough that is their only care, Going in for the kill, in for the kill in for the kill, in for the slaughter, In for the thrill of the power game, In for the kill, in for the finish, They've got to win it's the only way, Sitting in a darkened room sharing out the land, Someone holds a document and smiles as they shake hands, Going in for the kill, in for the kill in for the kill, in for the slaughter, in for the thrill of the power game, In for the kill, in for the finish, They've got to win it's the only way, Everywhere you wander, wander where you will, Someone's making deals and going in for the kill in for the kill, In for the slaughter, in for the thrill of the power game, In for the kill, in for the finish, They've got to win it's the only way in for the kill, in for the slaughter, In for the thrill of the power game, In for the kill, in for the finish, They've got to win it's the only way in for the kill, In for the kill, in for the kill, in for the kill"

For a song; the words echo reality. Whether its the folly of the banking industry or the machinations of NWO-led politicians selling their souls for a slice of the world cake; sometimes in the lyrics of a secular song; you can receive a confirmation of a truth.

Superb Sunny September Saturday

#373: Hello again folks! Yesterday, on a rare Saturday off for Julie; the Sinclair Four [+ 1] visited Cadbury World and then the Clent Hills. It was a lovely sunny, warm day. Us Brits seem to have nad our summer this year in June and September!
It is interesting that Cadburys were founded by Quakers and the factory in Bournville; Birmingham is a good half-day out. It is also interesting that the Cadburys Christian ethic meant that their workers were not exploited but had a life outside of work. There is a Bible displayed in the 'Bournville Experience' open at Genesis Chapter One. Every lady Cadbury worker was presented with a Bible on their Wedding Day by the Company. I have to say that I was impressed ... and the family loved the chocolate! I couldn't resist buying a bar of dairy milk chocolate - rum and raisin flavour - of course!
Later we went for a ride to the Clent Hills past the now derelict and emptied Longbridge plant - another 'sign of the times'. It was so warm and sunny up there on the hills. So many folks walking their dogs or themselves. There's nothing like feeling the warm rays of the sun on your face. Yesterday; I could see clearly the Costwolds; the Malverns; Clee Hill and the Wrekin in one panoramic view. We just don't realise what's on our doorstep here in the Midlands or any other part of the UK. We [still] have the freedom [relatively speaking] to visit these places unhindered. A common thread of my ELO BEATLES FOREVER blog is "you never know what you've got until it's gone" for a variety of reasons. That thought kept coming to mind all day. I wonder if there's a message in it for me - and for you guys.

New World Rising

#372: Hello again folks! I was listening to various pundits commenting on the G20 Pittsburgh Summit this morning on one or two 'news channels'. A couple of them talked about the new financial world order that is being or has been constructed in wake of the so-called 'credit crunch:

That the words "new"; "world" and "order" are being cited and reported more and more in respect to the 'world's leading economies' policing not only the banking system but also the 'war on terror' should start some alarm bells ringing. And at the head of it is not US President Barack Hussein Obama but Gordon Brown. This is ironic in that his public ratings here in the UK are lower than low yet 'ol GB appears to be the leading man. But things are not always what they seem in this world. Remember to watch the periphery folks! Both Angela Merkel and Nicolas Sarkozy are also very active in this arena ... and in the Iran nuclear issue too. Is the Beast rising? The NWO is now on the lips of many commentators. Time to be wary me thinx.

As it is in the Natural

#371: Hello again folks! Going back to that lovely picture of the sunset at the North Pole that I posted twice earlier this week; I was musing on another theme relative to the crescent of the moon.
The Book of Genesis tells us that "God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day [the Sun], and the lesser light [the Moon] to rule the night" [Genesis 1:16]. The Moon has no light of its own but reflects the light of the Sun. As it is in the natural; so it is in the spiritual. "God is light" [I John 1:5] and the devil is the "prince of darkness" [but not Ozzy Osbourne!]. Satan is Lucifer fallen and has no light of his own save that he can deceive folks into believing that he is "an angel of light" [2 Corinthians 11:13-14]. The Moon crescent is often the 'symbol' of islam depicting the worship of a god who, at best, is only a shadow of the One Triune God. It's also interesting that in Malachi; the Messiah is termed as "the Sun of Righteousness ... with healing in His wings".
How tragic that the natural is a refection of the spiritual. All those followers of islam who are following the illusion of allah - the [created] moon god - instead of the Creator Himself. Muslims need True salvation too folks!

Hope for No Pope [Visit]

#370: Hello again folks! Please don't inflict another papal visit on us. It's as if we aren't already under enough judgement:

But to receive a man whose very title in Latin is an affront to the ONLY Mediator between man and God - the LORD Jesus Christ - and who has dedicated his papal tenure to the spiritual presence sometimes called 'Mary' [who is definitely NOT the humble Jewess Miriam who was the earthly mother of Jesus and a sinner like the rest of us].

Is it worth the remnant protesting against this visit? Would you join me?

This Crescent Darkness

#369: Hello again folks! Yesterday's article entitled SUNSET AT THE NORTH POLE has reminded me of an obvious fact and one we stare at right in the face daily. And that is that on the domes of most mosques or their rooftops; and on the national flags of mostly nominally muslim countries; you will find a crescent that represents the moon god allah. Take another look at the above photograph and then the two [2] images below that perfectly illustrate this truth:
I always remember and enjoy the film "Its a Mad Mad Mad Mad World" [1963]. In it, various sub-groups of desperate folks are looking for a giant 'W' marking the spot where $350,000 of stolen loot has been buried. It is obvious to everyone except those looking for it where it is. Until someone realizes what it is when they weren't looking for it!.

The islamic crescent is any and everywhere. Can you see it? Be Bereans; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED; watch the periphery! And remember that God wants to save muslims too!

Sunset at the North Pole

#368: Hello again folks! I want to share the above lovely photograph with you; courtesy of that [main] man Mr. Pete Nuttall. It was photographed during the week of 11th May 2009. This is the sunset at the North Pole with the moon at its closest point. A scene you will probably never get to see in person, so take a moment and enjoy God at work at the North Pole. You can also see the sun below the moon. An amazing photograph and not one easily duplicated.

You may want to pass it on to others so they can enjoy it. Evolution .. poppycock .... intelligent design ... not so ... magnificent creation by a superb and Holy Creator ... definitely!

Do You Know Your Theology?

#367: Hello again folks! I like this one: Who was the third man in history to walk on water? The first was Jesus. The second was the apostle Peter. Then there was this guy Jose ...

Watch Ireland [2]

#366: Hello again folks! Perhaps THE most important election of 2009 is fast approaching. Julie spotted this great editorial in today's The Sun newspaper [] written by its Deputy Editor; Fergus Shanahan entitled "10 days until we become EU-K".
In this factual piece which draws the wrong conclusion; Fergus identifies and explains in plain English what the second Irish Referendum on the 'Lisbon Treaty' [a.k.a. the EU constitution] will mean to not only our Irish friends - but also us here in the UK. Bible students please take note:
10 days until we become EU-K
Forget about the recession for a moment. Ten days from now, our future is likely to to change forever. On October 2, Ireland has its second vote on the wretched Lisbon Treaty. If, as expected, it says Yes, the Treaty - handing over our Parliament's ancient powers to Brussels - will almost certainly be law here before Christmas. Brussels will have won at last, and Tony Blair will be awaiting his expected coronation as EU President. To be sure, Europe has many great points - fantastic to visit, brilliant beaches, Carla Bruni, paella and pizzas, Eva Green, sunshine, Penelope Cruz, buzzing cities and football teams nearly as good as ours! So what's the problem? I don't think everybody grasps the extent of what we stand to lose. We are looking at the biggest shift in power in Europe since WW2. It would mean that from its plain beginnings as a trading group, the EU has finally achieved its ambition of a huge superstate where little Britain is allocated the status of a naughty boy told to stand in the corner. We have lost an awful lot of our national powers already. Now we will lose the final say over our immigration and asylum policy. Foreign policy will be decided by Brussels. The EU's new Foreign Minister will outrank our Foreign Secretary. The EU President will speak for all Europe to President Obama, undermining our historic personal alliance with America. The EU will take away charge of policing and justice from our Home and Justice Secretaries. For example, if you forget to pay a Spanish parking ticket, you could be arrested by an EU cop and be carted off abroad in handcuffs. Sinister EU paramilitary cops will have the right to walk British streets. We will lose our veto - the vital right to say No - in 40 key areas. British democracy and civil liberties going back 1,000 years, which millions have died for, will be extinguished forever. Presiding over this will likely be Tony Blair, cheered on by Mandy [Peter Mandelson] and [Gordon] Brown. We will pay the second-biggest EU cash contribution yet languish near the bottom of the table for grants. All this is being achieved through the back door by fraud and dishonesty. The Treaty is deliberately written in meaningless Double Dutch only Brussels nerds can understand. Labour promised us a referendum on it then shamefully broke their word. Brussels needs all 27 EU members to sign up to the Treaty. The Irish, God bless them, said No last year. Since then they have been bullied so hard by the EU that they are expected to cave in. What then? We have to trust in David Cameron. Dave must make his course clear at the Tory conference, which starts days after the crucial Irish vote. If Ireland says yes and the Treaty becomes law here, he must promise a referendum regardless, if he is PM. We'll say No, at which point we must rethink our relationship with Europe. We should keep sensible links, such as trade. And if we can make common cause in areas like pollution and the environment and science, then fine. But we will NEVER accept Brussels as our political masters."
It was correct for me to quote the whole article despite its Tory orientation. Unfortunately the conclusion is indeed wrong. The Tory party will not extricate us from the EU Beast. David Cameron and most up and coming 'big party' movers and shakers are Common Purpose people. Tools of the EU machine and the ODPM. More on that in a later blog.
One thing is for sure; an awful lot of deception is about. We need to pray for our dear Irish friends and for another 'surprise' result. On the other hand; the end times WILL play out as God has foretold us in His Word anyway. A level head is needed and much wisdom.

This is Not a Prophecy

#365: Hello again folks! This is not a prophecy but it may be a prediction! What have all these recent news headlines have in common:

Students face paying more for tuition fees
Homeowners of £1M value properties to pay 0.5% 'supertax'
Schools to be amalgamated to cut costs
Old age care to be preceded by £20,000 'charge'
Carbon tax pressure rises
Major cuts ahead for public spending round
All of the above news stories; in some way, will either by direct or indirect taxation &/or 'savage' spending cuts put a further squeeze on common folks' cash flow ... leading ultimately to a reduction or relinquishing of private ownership.

And as China & Co. subtly and slowly reduce their foreign reserves of debt notes [mainly USD & GBP]; gold and cash; the pressure on the US and UK economies to reduce debt levels of over $11 Trillion and £804 million respectively will be directly or indirectly levied on the serfs rather than their financial lords. Here, for your perusal, is the latest US Debt Clock:

Down the road; it will become increasingly more difficult for hard working; honest folk to not only save but also [a] enjoy their pension years and [b] bequeath their assets to the next generation. And as private ownership decreases, dependence on public provision will increase. Then you can imagine why; when cash is abolished some time yet future; that most folks will be most willing to accept the MoB ['666' 'Mark of the Beast'] ... and only a remnant will resist.

No-one will and nobody can, in their own strength, endure the oncoming storm pressure. Only those under the Bishopry of Messiah Yeshua [the LORD Jesus Christ] will endure ... and only if they submit to Him totally. Remember this is not a prophecy ... but it may be a prediction!

Meeting Announcement: Bill Randles

#364: Hello again folks! I've another meeting to announce for you today! I have dealt with CAM [Christian Alliance Ministries] on several occasions and can personally recommend this ministry.

My good friend Pastor Roger Winter-Smith is a fantastic preacher and expositor of the Word. And Bill Randles' books have greatly blessed me and my extended [believing] family. Here is a brief biography of Mr. Randles:
"Bill Randles is the founder and pastor of Believers In Grace Fellowship, a Pentecostal Church in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA since 1982. He and wife Kris have five children. He has done short term missionary work in India and Nigeria. Mr. Randles' books include "Weighed and Found Wanting", a superb analysis of the 'Toronto' phenomena [according to Philip Powell], and "Making War in the Heavenlies", which seeks to consider spiritual warfare from a Biblical point of view. He is a regular speaker at Philip Powell's annual CWM conference in Australia. We trust that his ministry in the UK will be greatly appreciated and much needed"

A Brief History of Evolution

#363: Hello again folks! Whilst being shown around a potential secondary school this week for my daughter Rebekah; I couldn't help notice the plethora of evolution-based and [man-made] global warming school textbooks and even that abomination of a 'documentary' by Al Gore called 'An Inconvenient Truth' [it has as much truth in it as pork in a halal butchers!]. I made this quip to Julie about the THEORY of evolution that I thought I'd repeat to you esteemed folks:

"... evolutionary THEORY holds that nobody used nothing to make something ..."
or, for any mathematicians among you:
[0 + 0] x 0 = 1

You need more faith to believe in this THEORY of fallen man than God Himself. Why not re-read Romans 1:22 afresh? Yes; God does have a sense of humour! Be Bereans; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel! DO NOT BE DECEIVED!

Going to Extremes

#362: Hello again folks! The word 'extremism' is always being flashed across our newspapers and television screens. It would be extreme for a pacifist to be a suicide bomber or a True Christian to blow up [murder] some believers in another religion at their meeting place. I would venture that it would be extreme for a Buddhist to fly an aeroplane into a building deliberately. Or for an animal activist to set fire to an active slaughterhouse. To me that would be extreme. But for a true muslim to carry out violent attacks in the name of allah; following literally texts from the koran or hadith in doing so; would not be extremist to me. Most westernized muslims do not do such things and are respectable and responsible members of society. They appear to be the extremists in islam to me.

A Christian who holds to the Bible is not a fundamentalist or an extremist - he/she is a Christian. How you label 'fundamentalist' or 'extremist' depends on your datum and what you are comparing against. If your norm is extremist; who knows what kind of 'fundamentalist' you are? It's worth considering isn't it as we hurtle toward the MoB and the UNity one world religion. I can see a day when True Christians who don't compromise are labelled as extremists or fundamentalists and they lose their head for it [read the Book of Revelation!]

Changing Gear

#361: Hello again folks! On the day that it has been reported that a 12-year old boy is to undergo a sex-change; something else of note on this sensitive subject has raised its head. And this is it:

For a religion that denies the deity of Christ; pronounces hand amputation for theft; stoning for adultery; discriminates against women [the article above is about a woman becoming a man because, partly, she perceives the censure of women in islamic society] and issues death edicts to those leaving it - islam permits, to a degree, transsexuality.

It seems odd, an idiom of islam if you will, that there is some 'tolerance' of 'minorities' here. It's a shame that this 'tolerance' doesn't extend to Christian 'minorities' in islamic countries. And transsexuality is a much more complex issue that it appears to be on the surface too. It's all down to the Fall and its generation-by-generation degenerational curse. Only God truly knows the heart and man the outward.

Bankrupt: Another Bad Decision

#360: Hello again folks! Today it has been announced that the UK Government borrowed £16.1 billion last month. We now have a mind-boggling national debt of £804 billion:

On top of that; this week the TUC finally voted through it's anti-Israeli agenda and has now made effective an Israeli boycott motion:

It's another case of cause and effect. Of years of built up bias against Israel and a national divorce from its Judeo-Christian roots. Time and time again both in the Bible and throughout history; judgement has fallen [eventually] on nations who leave God &/or nations who go against His people. A lot of ill-informed and bad decisions are being made by our leaders. You now know the reason why.

Moment of Truth

#358: Hello again folks! Here we are again whistling thru' September and marching into October at pace. Over the last year or so since I returned from my trip to Israel last May; I have used two [2] photographs as desktop backgrounds at work ... and both of them have engendered the odd query that has lead to a spot of witnessing - as you do. The top picture is of the coast of Israel to the west of Tel Aviv as I headed home on a BA 'plane. The bottom picture is of the eastern gate in Jerusalem as viewed from across the Kidron Valley from near the [claimed location of] the Garden of Gethsemane. 
Both pictures hold a special place in my heart. One shows the covering of clouds ending in near synchronicity with the land ... just as if the LORD were displaying His covering over the land He gave to Abraham and his descendants. The other shows a kind of garland over the place where the LORD will return and re-enter God's capital; Jerusalem; one day soon but yet future. Sometimes it is good to re-visit old trodden paths and be re-grateful for God's mercies - on all and many levels. These two [2] scriptures from either Testament stand out for me: 
"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." [Proverbs 3:5-6]
"Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." [Ephesians 5:20]

America: Watch Your Neighbourhood [3]

#357: Hello again folks! This is now the third blog in my series of articles entitled "America ... Watch Your Neighbourhood". I'm not claiming divine inspiration for alerting you guys to these articles but I do feel 'led' to share them with you. While all about you are losing their heads; a lot is happening on the periphery:

First it was Al-Qaeda in Venezuela; then it was Iran doing deals for petroleum and now Russia is lending a helping hand to arm the near neighbour of the US of A. Something just ain't right here ... a build-up is beginning in America's backyard. Forget Cuba - watch Venezuela. Ignore the main stage and visit the side show[s] that the mass media are not promoting other than in the 'Other News' sections.

When Time Stood Still

#356: Hello again folks! I thought that I'd wax lyrical today and share these wonderful words from the pen of Jeff Lynne. Although part of secular songs; they hint at eternity and other dimensions; they had a positive influence on me in my pre-Christian years:

ELDORADO OVERTURE [from ELO's "Eldorado"; 1974]
The dreamer, the unwoken fool, In dreams, no pain will kiss the brow, The love of ages fills the head, The days that linger there in prey of emptiness, Of burned out dreams, The minutes calling through the years, The universal dreamer rises up above his earthly burden, Journey to the dead of night, High on a hill in Eldorado.

PROLOGUE [from ELO's "Time"; 1981]
Just on the border of your waking mind, There lies ... another time, Where darkness & light are one, And as you tread the halls of sanity, You feel so glad to be, Unable to go beyond, I have a message, From another time ...

A lot of my school friends told me that I was "deep". I've spoken to a number of Christian and non-Christian friends and family about how, in some ways, my early intesrest in music kind laid the groundwork for my later life et al. We all have a different flavour ..."different strokes for different folks" ... and everyone of us in an individual, created in the image of God but with our own will and set of 'complications'!!! Thank God that we are not all robots and are free to choose ... Him!

Vanity Kills

#355: Hello again folks! One of the other bands that I always liked [besides ELO of course!] from the 1980's was ABC. I loved the production of Trevor Horn on "The Lexicon Of Love" and I always liked the bittersweet angst of Martin Fry's lyrics. See also my article entitled CALLING ALL JEWISH SINCLAIRS on the Trevor Horn connection:

One of the songs that stood out for me [besides "15 Storey Halo"] was a 1985 track entitled "Vanity Kills". As a Christian this always reminds me to the Holy Spirit-inspired wisdom of Solomon and the Book of Ecclesiastes. Even in secular music and with secular lyrics there is a faint glimmer of truth. Vanity does kill ... the soul ... eternally.
"The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.
Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.
What profit hath a man of all his labor which he taketh under the sun?
One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.
The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose.
The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.
All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full: unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.
All things are full of labor; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.
The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.
There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after." [Ecclesiastes 1:1-12]

"Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher; all is vanity." [Ecclesiastes 12:8]

Jesus stated the vanity [the pointlessness and fruitlessness] of a man gaining the whole world and losing his own soul; echoing the words of the above scriptures. The Living Word citing the written Word under the direction of the Holy Spirit in doing the work of the Father's Work. It's just so beautiful and succinct and it perfectly displays the Triunity of the Godhead. Folks ... it's all about Jesus y'know ... and moreover ... it always was! From Genesis to Revelation ... Praise Him!

America: Watch Your Neighbourhood! [2]

#354: Hello again folks! Here is something of note on this the ninth day of the ninth month of 2009 [what's all the fuss about today's date anyway?]:

In a nutshell; Venezuela is now going to import refined petroleum from its main ally; Iran. This is interesting because it is happening in the geographical and political neighbourhood of our American cousins in the USA. Iran often cites the US as 'the great satan' and Hugo Chavez is a bitter critic of the US. Remember that I wrote a blog about this scenario back on 28th August 2008? You can re-read it here; if you are so minded:

It may be well worth while that you continue to take my repeated admonitions to watch the periphery with regard to current world events. While the so-called 'main events' are being played out in and around Jerusalem and Israel et al; please ensure that you are not deceived and keep an eye on the side show[s]. Remember the tale of the Trojan Horse.

Another Prophecy to Consider

#353: Hello again folks! Following my posting of David Noakes' 1997 prophecy the other day; Sally Richardson [God bless her] has sent me the detail of another prophecy given by Stewart Dool of 'Intercessors for Britain' during week beginning 23rd July 2007. Please bear in mind its timing; ten [10] years on from the 'New Beginnings' prophecy and then consider what has transpired since [i.e. the 'credit crunch' et al]. I am told that it has been weighed and tested by others in senior positions of ministry and it is the same genre as yesterdays posting:

"I am about to send fire upon you, the fire of My judgment, and it will consume on the right and on the left. All who have spurned My ways and My words will reap what they have sown, for in My burning anger I will judge the gods in whom you have put your trust, the gods of materialism and covetousness. The gold and the silver will be taken from you, and your portion will be emptiness, desolation and vanity.

I will bring the stability of your currency into doubt, to show you that it is I alone who caused you to prosper in the past. I raised you to prominence among the nations and gave you authority over many peoples: so you became rich, and boasted in your wealth, but I will bring you low, and the nations over whom you once ruled will say "What has happened to this great nation?"

As you have feared other gods, and not feared Me, so I will visit your deeds upon you. Your idolatries have led you astray, and you have become like those before whom you bow down. I commanded your fathers that they should not fear the gods of the nations, but you have not obeyed Me. Therefore I have given you into the hands of abominations and all manner of uncleanness.

Darkness will envelope those who have led my people into false light, for I will no longer forbear in my wrath. I will blind them, and they shall stumble in the perversity of their ways. Many shall follow them into darkness and be taken in the snare of the wicked, for they have loved to wander, and they have not watched the path of their feet.

My people give heed to those who prophesy a lie, and they delight in the teachers of falsehood. They run to those who steal from them by their destructive heresies, for they cannot discern the paths of righteousness. A wave of deception is about to break forth that will sweep many away, therefore take heed to yourselves, and cling to the word of My truth. I am bringing My Church to a time of testing, and I will search the hearts of all who call upon My name, and I will know those who are mine, and they shall know their God.

My displeasure will be visited upon your Government, for those who rule over you have become offensive to Me, as they have set aside My laws and My statutes, exalting the wicked and despising My holy name. You have not abhorred bloodshed, therefore the blood of your sons and daughters will lie in your streets, until you learn that as the cry of the unborn calls to me for vengeance, so I shall require it of you.

All these things I will do, because you have rejected Me, and thought that your own power could save you. Yet even now, if you will cry out to Me, and turn from your wickedness, I will spare. Nevertheless, I will chasten you in measure, and you shall know that I am the Lord. My beloved ones, the hour of My patience will not continue much longer. I call your therefore to seek my face with earnestness and zeal, that I may extend compassion to your land and people."

Again; I need add no more. Please pray for David Noakes and Stewart Dool. True prophets are always unpopular and persecuted - on many fronts. Read both prophecies together and consider them.

Test all things; Prove all things; Be Bereans; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel!

A Prophecy to [Re]Consider?

#352: Hello again folks! Further to my previous blog; here is the prophecy given by David Noakes at the Moriel Conference "New Beginnings" on Saturday 1st November 1997:

"What you are now seeing is not the first wave of deception that is to come, nor will it be the last. Satan is establishing an increasingly strong and broad power base in the churches of your nation in order to draw my people away after false hopes of a cheap and illusory glory of the flesh in this age. Do not look to the men who seem to be the principal instruments of the deception. They are false prophets who come and go like shooting stars. Their judgement is in my hand and I will execute it in its season. They prophesy by Baal but I will surely vindicate my own Holy Name.
Be concerned rather with the faithless shepherds of the flocks of my people. For an illusion of glory and success they sell the sheep of my pasture into the hand of the deceiver. False and deluded, they do not know my voice, for they do not reverence my Word. Puffed up with selfish ambition and vainglory, they lead my people into false ways. Thinking that they see in their blindness, they lead those who trust them into a ditch. They are as the Pharisees of old who love the places of honour and the applause of men, and they gain it at the expense of leading gullible men and women into ways which have an appearance of light but are in truth are a highway into deepest darkness.
Beware of such men. False shepherds and blind guides, my flock. Surely I will require an accounting at their hands for the blood of those who are being misled into the ways of death. For it is they who encourage the false prophets, and import the doctrines of demons into the midst of my sheepfold. My anger burns hotly against them and surely if they do not soon repent I will give them up to the hardness of their heart and there will be no returning for them when that point has been reached.
Do not trust the compromisers who seek to draw together and reconcile that which cannot be reconciled; who seek to find a middle way. Surely between light and darkness there is no middle way, but only an abyss of confusion and bewilderment.
This wave of deception will recede and with it those who now falsely prophesy. But the false shepherds amongst my people will remain as a danger, ready to grasp hold of the next wave when it comes, for surely it will do so. Each wave will be deadlier than the last and will attract more of those whose feet are not firmly grounded on the rock of my Word. Through the deception my hand will be at work. I will refine and separate those who will not bow the knee to Baal from those who do not love the truth. I will have a refined remnant who will be my true voice to this nation and through their testimony I will bring in a harvest from the lost world but only those who hold to the truth and walk in my Spirit will be used in that purpose.
I will judge the faithless shepherds who seek their own ambitions and the adulation of men. They will go their own way to destruction, but I will appoint other shepherds for my people; men whom I am even now preparing in hidden places, walking unseen paths. They will be of humble and contrite spirit, repentant of heart and walking in awe of their God and in deep reverence of his Word.
Surely in the last days I will keep a people for myself who are true to me and will shine like the stars of heaven in the increasing darkness and turn many to the way of righteousness and salvation.
Contend for the faith steadfastly. Do not strive with those who will not hear, but declare my truth patiently and perseveringly. Expose the strategies of the adversary. Blow the trumpet of warning, that those who have ears may hear, but leave the results to me.
Pray that the deaf may hear. Pray that the blind shepherds may yet see. But remember that it is only my Spirit which convicts of sin and guilt and of judgement to come.
The task of the watchman is to warn. If you will fulfil that task you will have served your master well." 

The above prophecy was originally cited within my blog of 23-June-2008 entitled "WATCHMEN REQUIRED: APPLY WITHIN. I need add no more.

Be Bereans; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel!

Meeting Announcement: David Dolan

#351: Hello again folks! How are you today on this 6th day of September 2009: the 12th Wedding Anniversary of Keith and Julie Sinclair?
My friends at CFI [Christian Friends of Israel] have alerted me to a very interesting meeting that is taking place in North London on Sunday 18th October 2009.
David is a Christian journalist who has been based in Israel for over 25 years. He has written a number of interesting and informative book on all aspects of the [so-called] 'conflict' between Israel and the palestinians.
He has also appears on many occasions on Christian television here in the UK; most notably Revelation TV and Genesis TV [who also host Bob Mitchell's monthly discussion programme].
I remember him appearing with David Noakes a while back on RTV with Howard Conder and I have to say it was one of the best interviews and discussions that I have ever seen on 'Christian' telly here in England. This has prompted me to re-post an earlier blog later of a prophecy given by David Noakes at the Moriel Conference back on 01-Nov-1997 [my 30th birthday] that is still relevant and stirring.
In any case; I highly recommend this meet to any of you esteemed folks who happen to live in the London area. Who knows ... I might see you there? It would be a 250-mile round trip for me but may be worth the effort. Some feedback would be appreciated from any of you guys who attend!

So be Bereans; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel!

Tongue in Cheek!

#350: Hello again folks! My good friend Pete Nuttall [again] has sent me this thought provoker. It is NOT meant to offend but is meant to be "tongue-in-cheek" with a degree of truth:

"A muslim dies and finds himself before the pearly gates. He is very excited, as all his life he has longed to meet the prophet Mohammed. Having arrived at the gates of heaven, he meets a man with a beard.
'Are you Mohammed?' he asks ... 'No, my son. I am Peter. Mohammed is higher up.'
He [Peter] then points to a ladder that rises into the clouds. Delighted that Mohammed should be higher than Peter, he climbs the ladder in great strides, climbs through the clouds, coming to a room where he meets another bearded man.
He asks again, 'Are you Mohammed? 'No, I am Moses. Mohammed is higher still.'
Exhausted, but with a heart full of joy, he continues to climb the ladder and, yet again, he discovers an even larger room where he meets another man with a beard.
Full of hope, he asks again, 'Are you Mohammed? 'No, I am Jesus ... You will find Mohammed higher up.'
Mohammed higher than Jesus! The poor man can hardly contain his delight and climbs and climbs, ever higher. Once again, he reaches a larger room where he meets a man with a beard and repeats his question:
'Are you Mohammed?' he gasps, as he is by now, totally out of breath from all his climbing. 'No, my son. I am God. But you look exhausted ... Would you like a coffee?' ... 'Yes, please, my Lord'.
So God looks behind him, claps his hands and calls out: 'Hey, Mohammed, two coffees!'"
Keep your trust in God ... not man. Be Bereans; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel!

God bless you and God bless Israel ... KJS ... 05-Sep-2009

Fear of the World

#349: Hello again folks! Ah ... the folly of fallen man and the longsuffering of a gracious God. The fool has said in his heart "There is no God". Now; whilst I was on my vacation over in the Costa Blanca; Spain last week; I finally got to read this article:

Half of me wanted to laugh and the other half wanted to cry! Fallen man wanted to sue God for allowing "bad things" to happen. Nebraska US state senator Ernie Chambers had sought a permanent injunction to prevent the "death, destruction and terrorisation" [supposedly] caused by God. A quick check of yer Bible will tell you from the Book of Genesis that sin is man's fault; the decaying creation [including 'bad stuff happening'] is the fruit of sin but that redemption is the real business of the Almighty God. Another article that interested me was this one:

The detailed chemical structure of a single molecule has been imaged for the first time claim researchers. The physical shape of single carbon nanotubes had been outlined before. This new method shows the chemical bonds to hydrogen atoms. This same group reported the achievement of measuring the charge on a single atom back in July.

Yesterday I detailed the groundwork being laid for "ethnos against ethnos". Today I hope I've demonstrated that the arrogance of man is reaching its peak just in time for the arrival of the son of perdition and that knowledge truly is increasing exponentially; per Daniel 12:4 ...

So be Bereans; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel!

Ethnos Against Ethnos

#348: Hello again folks! A question for you today folks: How do you simultaneously collate a continent made up of many individual national entities and at the same time dilute their cultures and identities enough so as to take away their sovereignty and ensure they never return to their original constitution[s]? Answer: read this:

So the EU wants to admit more refugees from non-Christian 'third world' countries; thereby further diminishing its diminishing Christian heritage and embracing islam and other eastern religions in a prelude to that forthcoming one world religious soup. This is to occur at a time of recession; relative high unemployment; high national debt and excessive welfare provision for its current citizens. Sounds like a recipe for disaster?

The'... nation against nation' mentioned by the LORD Jesus Christ in His Olivet Discourse [why not check out Matthew: 24-25; Mark: 13 &/or Luke: 17 & 21 for yourself?] is taken from the Greek word 'ethnos'. So Jesus said that one of the signs of the times of these last days will be: 'ethnos against ethnos'. We get the English word 'ethnic' from 'ethnos'. You've heard of 'ethnic cleansing' and 'ethnic rioting' or 'ethnic prejudice'? Me thinx that the days spoken of by Messiah Yeshua are on their way.

Time to be Bereans; to be watchmen and most importantly - be evangelists - while True Christianity has a some degree of 'freedom' to reach lost souls!
