Clean and Unclean II
Receive the Aviv Anointing Now
Continued from Part 1
Shabbat shalom kol beit Yisra'el and may the grace of our Master Yah'shua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) on this second sabbath of the 12th and last month of the current year.
Prayer Intercession and a Vision
May I begin by thanking sincerely and from the bottom of my heart all of you who have been interceding for me in prayer in recent times. It has been personally very challenging physically as more than once I have wondered if I was about to depart this sphere. So to the many intercessors in Kenya, South Africa, America, Europe and elsewhere, may I once again say a big thank you. Some days ago I awoke to find this shimmering, vertically convoluted sheet of energy surrounding my bed like a curtain which immediatetey reminded of the time many decades ago when in Oxford as a single man I had a similar experience. At that time I awoke to find a curtain around me also, but this time of what appeared to be giant white interlaced petals. As the petals fell to the ground one by one I could see I was surrounded by men and women, hands joined, in prayer over me. It was a comforting and reassuring experience then as it was again to see the power of Elohim (God) once again surround me like a hedge of protection at a time when I felt most vulnerable and mortal. So thank you again. I am not over this present hurdle but don't feel like I am n death's door. Nevertheless I am having to take things slowly which is why this sermon is a day late. Our physical complaints are, however, the least of our worries at this time of cleansing, though of course they are not unimportant.
Preaching With Fire and Conviction: Ian Paisley
I have been listening to the the preaching of the fiery Northern Irish evangelist Ian Paisley, who died last year after a very colourful career as Ulster's First Minister as well as the founder of the Free Presbyterian Church, and though an ultra-Protestant with a lot of erroneous doctrines, he was a man of genuine faith and compassion for people. He was also betrayed by his own party and church which left him broken-hearted and is what may have sent him over the brink into death. I can certainly relate to him for satan will always seek to destroy any work of Elohim (God) from without, and when he fails in that, from within. Most of all, this man was on fire, and we cannot be the remnant if we are not similarly full of heavenly fire.
Facebook and Computers are Not Enough: Francis Chan
This armchair generation, glued to their seats by Satan's distractions and social programming devices, computers, Ipads and TV's, has got to get off their seats and as Pastor Francis Chan, another of the preachers I respect greatly said, have got to return to one-to-one ministry and to stop fooling ourselves into thinking that we can build the Messianic Community solely through Facebook and other social media. There's no real heart-to-heart contact in cyberspace, no really dealing with issues, because there we can all too easily wear masks and hide, and so fool ourselves into thinking we are something that we are not. And useful though these media are in getting the Word out, they can never substitute for the real feet-on-the-ground and eye-to-eye contact of personal ministry. Though cyberspace has been a lifeline to many unable to attend local fellowships, it can never substitute for them. It sanitises reality and superimposes a level of unreality. Face-to-face destroys the comfort zones we hide in and forces us to be uncomforable, because discomfort is part and parcel of repentance. So the Internet had brought mixed blessings to us.
No-Nonsense Witnessing: Leonard Ravenhill
Finally, so that you may know a little of where I have been in my own struggles and preparations for Aviv, I have been listening to the late Leonard Ravenhill, a no-nonsense man of Elohim (God) with a prophetic mantle, telling uncomfortable truths. These three men - and I know there are many more - are in the business of waking people up. It is so sad that Yahweh would have to mostly use antinomians for the task but the simple truth is most messianics are asleep too, absorbed with their own particular hobby horses whilst all the while spewing out self-righteousness and condemnation of others. All these men were, and are, called to simply wake Yahweh's people up to a lively sense of their owen responsibility. And that, right now, is the main problem. The Messianic Community (Church) is asleep - well and truly asleep. While fleshy believers occupy themselves with building organisations, Yahweh's men are concerned with getting the brainwashed souls of this generation out of their slumber! The rallying cry of the nevi'im (prophets) now, as before, remains the same:
Prepping and Famine
"AWAKE, SLEEPER, AND ARISE FROM THE DEAD, AND MESSIAH WILL SHINE ON YOU!" (Eph.5:15, NASB).
In this world where victimisation and destruction of the family and the local community has been caused by people being fooled by incessant Marxist propaganda and occult-steered government policy, we have got to get the family and messianic communities together again into vital, living fellowships of praise and prayer. That is out first priority. And whilst prepping is without a doubt vitally important too for physical survival, and whilst I am glad that some of you are taking this seriously - some are not and are going to starve and perish - may I remind you also that famine stalks the land of Kenya once more and that our brethren there are going to die in droves if we don't interceed for them and do what we can to practically help. Yahweh most forcibly reminded me at the end of last month of not only what He wants of us, limited in resources though we are, and what promises He gives to us if we will respond with generosity and sincerity of heart:
Taking Care of People
"Is it not to share your food with the hungry
and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter --
when you see the naked, to clothe him,
and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness will go before you,
and the glory of Yahweh will be your rear guard.
9 Then you will call, and Yahweh will answer;
you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.
"If you do away with the yoke of oppression, (Isa.58:7-12, NIV)
with the pointing finger and malicious talk,
and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the darkness,
and your night will become like the noonday.
Yahweh will guide you always;
He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.
Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins
and will raise up the age-old foundations;
you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls,
Restorer of Streets with Dwellings"
Famine is in East Africa, where our people are located, and it will get worse. And it is coming to us too - to the United States, to Europe, to the well-to-do nations. We are commanded to store up against this evil time, but we are also commanded to help our brethren who already lack. Moreover, there isn't much time left to do so. Do you see the promise made here in Scripture - the condition for revival - it is to physically take care of our people as well as nurture them spiritually. Sermons alone will not do it. Prayer alone will not do it because so often prayer can be our cop-out, our way of passing the buck to someone else to help practically instead of us. We can so easily hide in prayer too. And whilst prayer is an area where we still lack, it cannot be its own gospel hobby horse either - it has to be in concert with everything else we are commanded to do... with evangelism, with personal ministry, with taking care of those unable to take care of themselves.
No Time for Entertainment
So if you are using your resourses at this late hour for going on vaccation, entertainment and personal pleasure, know that this is not the time! This is the time to get ready and then, with your surplus, to help those who are in need the most. Remember also the admonition of Isaiah is that heads of households take responsibility to provide for their own flesh-and-blood whether they are believers or not, and their first responsibilty - if they are unbelievers or lapsed believers - is to urgently admonish them to repent! You may not see the crisis yet, because it is not at your doorsteps, and may not feel the need to respond, and if that is so, then it is because you are not in the Ruach (Spirit) who is most certainly telling us to get going, to make preparations, to complete those preparations. Do you think the countdown is some joke? Do you think I spent an entire afternoon making a calendar for each day and posting it online for my own entertainment or out of some misguided sense of doom? The clock is ticking, time is running out, and we know what we are to do because He has told us. And if you're still not sure, you need to get on your knees and find out the emet (truth) for yourself so that you too become urgent about these matters and warn others.
Vision of Benelux, North-West Germany and North-East France
I must mention here and now, while we're talking, in part, about Europe, that at 8.22 a.m. on the 12th day of the 12th month (2 March), right after I had seen the vision of the wall of energy around my bed which I mentioned earlier, that I saw another vision of a chunk of Europe. It was dark and it was as though it had been sliced out of the continent itself for it was entirely separate. It was as though someone had taken a large knife and, starting in Schleswig-Holstein, cut a curve that included Oldenburg, the Rhineland, Luxemburg and part of France, ending in the eastern part of Normandy (see map below). As I said, it was dark, I could see nothing on the surface, but I know Yahweh was drawing my attention to this region as a matter of some urgency. We need to pray for this region.
Taking It Step-wise in Obedience
We are in a personal cleansing season - the gathering at Aviv is for cleansed individuals to prayer for the Messianic Community! Now is the time for personal cleansing and you have got 44 days left in which to do it. I don't know what lies beyond 18 April, Yahweh hasn't told me save in the most general terms - all I know is what we have to do between now and then, and that is why I am urgently getting this message out. He reveals the steps one at a time and it is for us to take each step in emunah (faith). So please don't come to me on 18 April and say, 'World War III didn't start', or 'the Economy didn't Collapse' or 'Nibiru hasn't come', or anything like that (though these things may have happened or started by then - indeed I believe all three have started), and then walk away in unbelief, because that isn't even the point. The point is that Yahweh has a program for us to successfully meet all the emergencies that are going to befall us in the next couple of years and if we don't complete the steps in sequence we won't be able to make a sudden rush at the time to take Step #2 and suddenly squeeze in Step #1 too! Impossible! Just as it was impossible for the foolish virgins to get oil for their lamps when the time came to attend the Marriage Feast of the Lamb (Mt.25:1ff.), so we will be unable to do what we need to do in preparation for what is to come in the days ahead.
Become Prophets, Let Your Faith Grow
Do you understand what I am saying? Yahweh does not give us the whole Plan in detail in advance, but stepwise. It has always been that way and it will continue to be that way. And if you don't believe me, fair enough - find out for yourself, as others have done and are doing and are getting the same message. All are called to be nevi'im (prophets), there aren't supposed to be Moses-men in the New Covenant, even though there are because most believers are too lazy to take personal responsibility for revelation in their own lives. You are, in any case, always responsible for your own decisions so don't go and blame-shift. I am responsible for warning you, no more. And, yes, I have made mistakes in the past in the days of my spiritual immaturity and impetuousness, so by all means test what I say - it's your duty! Become your own witnesses, as it right. Do not lean on me but on Yahweh. And if he tells you the same, then join with me and get the message out yourself. I certainly can't supply any of my oil for your lamps, nor anyone else who has been obedient. And that includes physical prepping. So do it, and do it now. Yahweh will do for you what you cannot do for yourself if you will just trust in Him. Let your emunah (faith) grow!
The Point of Accurate Theology
People have a lot of readjustments to make still - a lot. That is why I am commissioned to give you in-depth teachings so that you can think straight and know how to respond appropriately in all the situations that are going to arise. I do not 'do theology' to titillate your minds. It doesn't exist for its own sake. I am not here to entertain you or compete with other theologies. Our theology is for spiritual and physical chayim (life), not for intellectual titillation. I don't give you new teachings to keep you in a denominational net - it's for everyone who will hear.
What Have You Been Saved For?
Some enjoy theology more than others - the point is that it is to teach you to walk in divine tavnith (pattern) so that you are prepared in season and out of it. We have to think, feel and walk like Yah'shua (Jesus) not just for our eternal salvation but so that we, and our families, can stay alive, be safe, and be productive for the Kingdom in the days ahead. False theology will trip you up, cause you to be doing the wrong things, trusting in the wrong prophetic markers and so endanger your lives. We look with horror at the massacre of Christians in Syria and Iraq and I know we ask questions. We look in helplessness and wonder - why? Why is this happening to them? Why has it been allowed? I cannot answer that fully, though I have thoughts as I am sure all of you do too, but I note that twenty or so thousand Christians fleeing murder, rape and enslavement have been given sanctuary in Lebanon. They have been chosen by Yahweh to live for a purpose. And when the wickedness and destruction there comes here, in whatever form that may be, many believers will perish but a remnant will be saved and taken to other 'Lebanons'. Ask yourself this question: what have they been saved for?
What Have You Been Saved From?
I like how Leonard Ravenhill used to ask that question. He used to ask people if they had been saved, to which they would reply, in vast numbers, 'Yes, we have been saved'. Then He would ask them: 'What have you been saved from?' This they would find hard to answer. And so he would ask then: 'Have you been saved from adultery? Have you been saved from intemperance? From fornication? From theft? From slothfulness?' And so he would recite a long list to them. Most could not answer him for they knew in their hearts they were not fully saved.
Have You Been Fully Delivered?
And that is the question you have to ask yourself today. What have you been saved from? And what have you been saved for? Now Ravenhill was an Evangelical Christian but he was also a navi (prophet) and he understood well that modern Protestantism has become vacuuous and empty. People don't know what salvation is, beyond the initial release, the initial deliverance from sin, and have let themselves remain in areas of undeliverance - of not being saved - and have believed the lie that it doesn't matter because they have their ticket to heaven anyway. Don't be so sure. That is why I bring this messianic evangelical message.
What are You Supposed to Be Doing Right Now?
Initial salvation is wonderful, good, necessary, blessed, but you can't stop there. There are seven annual festivals, not one. They're given to teach us the step-wise nature of salvation. You have to go on until you are saved from all sinning! Because if you aren't, how will you stand in the day of wrath? How will you stand when you find yourself in a life-threatening situation but don't know what to do because the devil has blocked off your lines of communication with Heaven because you allowed him to do so through uninhibited sinning? Yes, worry about the Judgment at the end of this life, but the end is not all - you have a life to live inbetween too. You have a need to hear Yahweh and respond to Him quickly. You won't be able to afford to delay or postpone when you find yourself in a life-threatening situation. You will need to know your escape route or else perish! And then, when you are done with worrying about what you need to be doing because you have finally understood that salvation is also about salvation from sinning, you will have the resources - the energy, the equipping - to know what it is you are called to do by Him and what you were saved for. You will be able to help other people save their lives though trusting in Messiah and obeying Torah whereas before you were only concerned about saving your own neck and had precious few resources to do anything else because of your own unresolved sinning. How can I put it more plainly to you so that you can wake up and get right with Him?!
Remember What King Messiah Expects
Maybe you need a reminder of what Elohim (God) expects. Maybe you need a reminder of what it is you are called to let go of that is holding you back so that you can take hold of that which will enable you to climb out of the spiritual gutter and more forward. You, we - me and you - we are the daughter commanded to listen:
Are You Being Fathered
"Your throne, O Elohim (God), will last for ever and ever;
a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.
You love righteousness and hate wickedness;
therefore Elohim (God), your Elohim (God), has set you above your companions
by anointing you with the oil of simcha (joy).
All your robes are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
from palaces adorned with ivory
the music of the strings makes you glad.
Daughters of kings are among your honoured wives;
at your right hand is the royal bride in gold of Ophir.
"Listen, O daughter, consider and give ear:
Forget your people and your father's house.
The king is enthralled by your beauty;
honour him, for he is your master.
The Daughter of Tyre will come with a gift,
men of wealth will seek your favour.
"All glorious is the princess within [her chamber];
her gown is interwoven with gold.
In embroidered garments she is led to the king;
her virgin companions follow her
and are brought to you.
They are led in with joy and gladness;
they enter the palace of the king.
"Your sons will take the place of your fathers; (Ps 45:6-17, NIV)
you will make them princes throughout the land.
I will perpetuate your memory through all generations;
therefore the nations will praise you for ever and ever"
Are you ready to be brought before the King, Yah'shua (Jesus), the Son of David? Are you "daughters of kings", the children of good fathers, or good congregational leaders? Has anyone fathered you? Have you allowed anyone to father you? How can you be represented to the "Everlasting Father" (Is.9:6) if you haven't come under the dominion and authority of good earthly fathers? "Forget your people and your father's house" - earthly fathers are but temporary guardians and their simcha (joy) is to hand over their "daughters" - their children in the flesh and/or the spirit - to the King, the "Everlasting Father", but you can't escape being properly fathered by earthly fathers either. Ian Paisley, Francis Chan and Leonard Ravenhill have been fathering me this last week. Do you want to be of the "royal Bride" - then you have to come to the King unblemished. There are many "honourable wives" but not all are unblemished, not all are the Remnant.
Be Careful of the Gifts from Tyre
A warning - "the Daughter of Tyre will come with a gift, men of wealth will seek your favour" - those of the world, those who are not the remnant, and others, will come with gifts. 'Beware of Greeks bearing gifts' because gifts can turn your head. Use the gifts for the Kingdom, not for your own glory, but for Yahweh's. The frightened Egyptians sent the children of Israel off with gifts and what did they do with them? Melted the gold down to make a Golden Calf. So be careful. One brother the other day had his car wrecked and was in the doledrums for a while but Yahweh had a purpose in this. But what purpose? The outcome of what appeared to be a tragedy enabled him to acquire the funds he so desperately needed to complete his prepping. Gifts come in many unexpected ways but we must also know what we are to do with them.
Leave Your Flag Behind
We're not gathering at Aviv to do anything other than prepare ourselves to be the "royal Bride" - that's who we are dedicating, the Bride who is willing to forsake everything for the King, leaving everything behind. Leonard Ravenhill, who was British before he emmigrated to the United States, once said that when he came to the Cross he left the Union Jack there - the British flag - not to take up an American flag but to take up the Banner of the Kingdom of Heaven. And he warned Americans to deposit their flags at the Cross too. He had no time for 'patriotism' and 'nationalism' because he understood, as all the nevi'im (prophets) did, that his one allegience was to the Kingdom of Heaven. That goes for the flags of your churches, messianic assemblies, alliances and denominations when He tells you to drop them off.
Foeget Your People and Father's House
That is why the messianic "daughter" in Psalm 45 is told to "forget your people and your father's house". For a wife to become fully her husband's she has to do that so that she has but one allegience. The Messianic Bride has to do them same, else her loyalties will be divided. Make no mistake about that. If you intend to continue clinging onto "your people and your father's house", if you intend to cling onto any part of your old life, or the world system, you cannot become the King's own. You just can't.
The High Road and Royal Way
Deep down you know it to be true but your flesh hates it and rises up in mock loyalty, plucking the strings of the passions, stirring emotions that seem spiritual but which are of the world. And remember, the feelings for both the world and for Heaven are the same type of experience - and that is why you cannot be guided by your feelingts but onloy by the Davar Emet, the Word of Truth. You can't be an existentialist. That is the hallmark of the Messianic Bride. Yes, you can choose to be among the other "honourable wives"  if you want - amongst those who are buffetted, blind and desperate because they don't know what to do - and find your way into Heaven on a second-class ticket, and you might even try to invoke false, prideful piety to make out that your inferior choice is superior when it isn't, but you would only be deceiving yourself. We aren't choosing the High Road, the Royal Way, because we want to exalt ourselves! We're choosing it because Yahweh wants us to so that we can give Him GLORY.
Submission and Glory
You wives must understand that the same principle applies to your marriages too - if your husband is true and wants the same thing, he wants everything not so that he can glory in himself but so he can give all the glory to his Heavenly Father! It may appear vain to the flesh - and the flesh will surely lie to you - but the goal is always the glory of the Father. Ask your husband why he wants your submission, and if he wants it so that he can give all the glory to the Father - for real - then you can safely trust yourself to him. That's why Yah'shua (Jesus) wants all of us too submit to Him - so that He can give glory to the Father.
No Longer Walk by Sight
Divine perspective means everything but you can never have it if you insist on walking by sight (2 Cor.5:7). You can seek for other ways to the Throne but you will never find it. You will be eternally disappointed. We walk by emunah (faith) and by emunah (faith) alone (Rom.1:17). So it's a simple choice - you know what you have to do. It isn't complicated. You don't need some involved education to comprehend or apprehend it. You just have to accept Scripture at face value and just walk by trusting Yahweh. Then you won't panic or flip out - you'll keep it together even if the flesh can make no sense of anything or see no way forward. Stop relying on the flesh. Put it finally to death. That's what we're here to do. You can do it and He will fully enable you.
Stop Listening to the Flesh
Now maybe you can tell I am full of the Ruach (Spirit) today. I certainly know it. I spent an hour in prayer last night taking counsel with the nevi'im (prophets) and simply bathed in the Ruach (Spirit) that was in them, and they fired me up and the Ruach (Spirit) flooded in. So I know what I am saying is true. I say this not to boast because I know this is not of me. My flesh hates this message as much as yours does, but I choose not to listen to that flesh. You see, I realised I was unsubmitted myself. I realised I was farther off the mark than I supposed. So I decided to do something about it. Will you?
This is a great adventure, Yahweh is doing a great work and a wonder in the Remnant, and all they have to do is submit, trust Him and listen carefully to His instructions. This is how the cleansing happens - daily responsiveness. So come up to the House of Yahweh, nothing doubting, and receive the Aviv anointing! Amen.
Continued in Part 3
 Nearly every Bible version dilutes this and substitutes "wives" for "women" because the Protestant and Christian (and most Messianic) translators are by default anti-polygynous, even though it is plain these are King David's wives being spoken of, who are a type of the Messianic Community. Before the 1611 King James Version the correct translation was used by the Geneva Bible (GNV) - King James was a homosexual who had no interest in monogamous heterosexual marriage, let alone polygamous marriage. James hated the Geneva Bible with its footnotes that contradicted his claim to the 'divine right of kings', a reason the KJV was ordered into production. The version, for all its excellence, therefore contains Anglican biases which have largely been followed through by all subsequent translations into the English language. In the GNV footnote to Psalm 45:9-10, it says:
We therefore see the essentialness if translating the word correctly, and without bias, in order to receive the full impact of its message
"Though he (David) had many kings' daughters among his wives, yet he loved Pharaoh's daughter best... Under the figure of Pharaoh's daughter, he showeth that the Church must cast off all carnal affections to obey Christ only"
