The Spirit of Truth is Now Exposing the Great Pretenders

by Veronica West

“My Spirit of Truth is now exposing the great pretenders from among you, the ravenous wolves in sheep’s clothing, for I AM stripping the evil rulers of the nations of their garments of corruption and perversion that have long covered them… and naked they shall stand before Me and before the world to see!”

I felt a pressing burden from The LORD in the early hours of the morning to go into my prayer closet, and as I went before The LORD, suddenly The Spirit of The Fear of The LORD came upon me.

I heard The Spirit say, “My Spirit of Truth is now exposing the great pretenders from among you, the ravenous wolves in sheep’s clothing, for I AM stripping the evil rulers of the nations of their garments of corruption and perversion that have long covered them, and naked they shall stand before Me and before the world to see.

For their evil works done in secret, cannot and will not be hidden from My Sight.

For what has been conceived and concealed in darkness, shall now be uncovered and revealed in the light.

And where My Glory once covered them and My Mercy once delivered them, now they shall be clothed with shame and dishonour, and crowns of bitterness and defeat shall adorn their heads and they will sit on the ash heap with no hope of restitution or redemption.

For their stiff necks shall be broken and their uncircumcised hearts shall be their downfall.  For I shall not be mocked, but I shall avenge My enemies with just one breath from My Nostrils.

Watch!  For sudden death and destruction shall come upon those who dare to stand in the way of My Governing Hand of Justice and Righteousness.

For I AM the great Judge over the Nations and My Courts have ruled for Life and Liberty over death and bondage.

So pay attention and listen!

For now there is a New Sound that is rising in the Nations, a sound of a roar, a roar of The Lion of Judah, a sound that will shake the wicked to their knees, and awaken My fearless Warriors to their feet!

Now watch and listen!  For in the midst of a great shaking, shifting and divine separating, a loud rattling sound shall be heard coming up from the valley as a mighty remnant army rises to take her place on the battlefield for the birthright and destiny of the nations.

For in great power and authority, this mighty Army shall advance and conquer the strongholds of the enemy.  And as the violent, they shall take The Kingdom by force!

Ha!  Who shall stop what I have begun and who shall restrain or contain what I have ordained?

For I tell you the truth my beloved, eyes have not seen, nor ear heard, nor have it entered the hearts of man what I have prepared for those that love Me!”

Blessings to you all.

An Undeniable and Amazing Miracle

Let me share an amazing story, truly miraculous, which has unfolded early this year.

My son has an IT business with Egyptian-born Atef. Atef and his Philippine-born wife, Emelie were living on the Central Coast of New South Wales with their three young boys when she became pregnant again.   

In November 2020, Emelie was given the most distressing news by doctors at the local hospital. She faced the most dangerous possible outcome because of the baby’s position. The placenta was growing in a verticle crevice left by a previous caesarean delivery. The thin wall of the placenta could easily puncture.

When my wife Joan and I heard this terrible news from Atef, we began praying and then we recruited others praying day and night for the blessing of God upon them, for a miracle. It had to be a miracle.

She was then referred to the Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney where she was told that the doctors would be assembling a team of specialists (not just obstetricians) to be on hand for a March delivery as the lives of both mother and baby would be in grave danger due to potential haemorrhaging. An all-day procedure would be necessary. When they asked the specialist about the odds of having a successful outcome, the doctors gave no reply. Could the situation rectify naturally? The specialist said that was impossible. They were told that even if the delivery was successful the growth of the child could be compromised.

Well, our prayers were about to be answered in an extraordinary way.

On the 7th of January, Atef and Emelie went to Sydney’s Royal North Shore Hospital for a scheduled scan of the pregnancy. Then they were told the most astonishing good news.

The scan at the Sydney Hospital revealed that Emeiie could expect to have a completely normal finish to her pregnancy. The specialist was stunned and said this was totally unexpected. He said the womb was completely normal and “it didn’t even look like she had undergone three previous C-sections”.

A few weeks later, the parents made another scheduled visit expecting Emelie to undergo an MRI scan. But after an Ultrasound was performed, the specialist they saw confirmed total normality! He had no explanation but had to acknowledge this was a miracle. There was no need to have the scheduled MRI, nor another visit to Sydney, and she was told she could have the baby at their local hospital.  Wow!

When they made the necessary arrangements for a March delivery at the local hospital, the medical staff were sounding very concerned that the procedure would not be without very serious results despite the recent scans at the Royal North Shore Hospital.  So they proceeded to have a team of specialists ready for the worst-case scenario, an all-day procedure. We kept trusting God and encouraged Atef as well.

The big day arrived. On 11th March, Emelie and Atef proceeded to the local hospital and there a beautiful, perfect baby girl weighing 3.5 kg was born by normal C-Section. There was no abnormal bleeding and the condition of the womb did not look as if there were any previous C-sections. They said, “there was not even any bad scarring visible!”

The climax of an amazing miracle.

Isn’t God wonderful! Atef and Emelie are over the moon. Excited. And so thankful to God and to all who joined in prayer. God loves us so very much. To God be the glory.

Surely, God intended the arrival of this precious little life and He intends many blessings for this family!

Rejoice with us and be encouraged in your faith and prayer life. Keep on asking!

Jesus died and rose and lives for us

Happy Easter! Christ is risen!

By Caleb Stephen and the team at CitizenGO

The everlasting message of Resurrection Sunday speaks life and love every calendar year. 

2021 is no exception. The world still faces a darkness that idolizes killing pre-born babies, destroying the family and promoting harmful curriculums in schools.  

The reality is that Christ has conquered death and given us immortality. We are made for eternity. 

This is why we rejoice: we as sinners have been redeemed. We have been saved at a high price – nothing less than God himself offered up to pay our debt. 

We have been released from the chains of mediocrity, sadness, hopelessness, fear, hunger, suffering, and even death. 

We do not deny that most of 2020 and 2021 have been difficult — with the health and economic crisis caused by COVID-19. Still, it is also true that our Hope transcends these current harsh realities.  

Because Christ has risen and has opened for us the doors of Paradise, a true homeland for you and for me. A place without darkness but also without hatred, bitterness, enmities, or unpaid debts. A homeland of joy, good humor, tenderness, and happiness. In short, a homeland of love for which we are created. To love and be fully happy.  

Do not let the difficulties of these present times rob you of that joy. Remember that Christ is stronger than death and, of course, the coronavirus.  

Happy Easter! Enjoy this Easter Sunday however you manage to spend it. 

There is nothing in this world that can change an empty tomb. 

Fake Christianity

As more people read their New Testament and see what it actually says about meeting together and what is God’s design for us in the New Covenant in contrast to the old they begin to long for something more authentic, more participatory–what God actually wants.

The Lord has clearly provided the most glorious pattern for us–the Lord Jesus, himself, his example, His commands, His works and His constant obedience to what the Father said. If He was so obedient then so must we also. Just ‘as Moses was faithful in all his house’ so Jesus was/is in His house which He is building and gathering not being built by human hands.

So we also in following Him, must be faithful.

Jesus never commanded his followers to start institutions, but to make disciples, and teach them all that he taught his little flock.

The believers we read about in the N.T., though not perfect yet obeyed the voice of the Holy Spirit and the instructions of the apostles, eg 1 Cor 1, 11-14. But since as early as 2nd Century and even earlier in some N.T. letters and the 7 assemblies of Revelation, men have had their own ideas and so we come to today with pharisaism, false teaching, mono-ministry, loss of supernatural, and ended up with mere religion devoid of the Holy Spirit

We have thought we could change from the word of God, that we could do better ourselves.

God calls this Disobedience.

It is a plain and simple need to repent, change our minds, humble ourselves, weep and begin to radically OBEY. To admit that we have disobeyed the plain words of Jesus (e.g., Matthew 18:17, 23). This will require humility, the will and searching to do only what the Father wants and to be willing to suffer reproach loss of friends and loneliness.

A Word… Not for the faint of heart!

By Veronika West


I heard The Spirit say these words, “I will not be mocked!

For those who have sought to sign the death warrant of the innocent shall soon see that they have signed their own death warrants, and be not dismayed nor deceived, for though My Justice may seem to tarry but for a moment.

Do not think that I have winked at their sin but rather in My Mercy I have given them time to repent and turn away from their evil deeds.

But watch and pay close attention, for My Anger will burn hot against the stiff necked, and the rebellious and those that have sown to the wind, shall swiftly reaep the whirlwind of My Wrath and Fury!

For surely I tell you, the blood of the innocent has cried out to Me night and day, and I now sit in The Courts of Heaven and I have pronounced these wretched ones as Guilty in My Sight, and they shall find no escape from My Judgment and Justice that is to come.

Listen! Do not think that I AM deaf, nor that I have turned a blind eye to their works of witchcraft and wickedness!

No! But I shall take vengeance on the enemies of the unborn! And I say to those who have sided and given support to these workers of darkness and inequity, and to those of you who have even offered up prayers and proclamations of blessings for these evil doers, you will have no part in Me!

Nor will you sit at My Table and taste and see of My Goodness in the land of the living!

But you shall be cut off and cast down, even as I will cut off and cast down those who have offered up the blood of the innocent as a sacrifice to the gods of Baal and Moleck.

Who will come to your rescue and who will come to save you from the trap and the dark pit that you yourselves have set and dug for the righteous?

I tell now, no one shall hear your cries and no one will give heed to your groanings for mercy and deliverance, but your names will be removed from the books of My Creation and remembered no more, and your generational lines shall be cursed to the dust and barrenness shall be your portion!”

Blessings to you all.

The Vaccine

Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.  It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible Ephesians 5:11-13

We are asked by the Lord to be children of light and to have nothing to do with the dark acts we see in the world.

Rather we are commanded to expose them.

OK. So, in fear and trembling . . .

A recent report by an independent journalist has just share information he obtained from the CDC of the United States on the Rate Of Adverse Reactions To COVID Vaccines. These are said to be “Already 50x Higher Than Flu Shots.”

https://www.zerohedge.com/covid-19/rate-adverse-reactions-covid-vaccines-already-50x-higher-flu-shot  Check it out

My wife and I have both decided we will not have this jab. In fact, we have never had the annual flu shots even though we were/are deemed ‘elderly’. Of course we take precautions. And we trust in God’s grace and protection!

We have observed that many who had those flu jabs in recent years still suffered the virus. We also note that there is no vaccine for the ‘common cold’.

Also we believe it takes many years to produce a safe and effective vaccine. We are aware that the approved vaccine has not been tested on animals.

We also know that in Australia (only in Australia?) no doctor is allowed to prescribe any of the known, proven and effective medicines which are safe and effective. Your local pharmacy has these on their shelves.

You don’t believe this?—do your own research. Your health is at stake

We were begun as Persons

That this is not a person at 12 weeks is just one of the many, many lies being told, believed and approved of by people in Australia as well as the USA. Perhaps the worst of all lies. We have a choice about what we believe–we are responsible as fellow humans made in the likeness of God. Judgment will come.

Believers After 70 AD

Were there any ORIGINAL disciples who survived 70 AD?

Preterist Jack Pelham says there were no believers left on the earth after 70 AD—they had been raptured! First, he quotes Matthew 28:20 I will be with you till the end of the age (aion) saying this would leave survivors of 70 AD out of this promise. But Jesus was assuring His audience, that He would be with them till the end of the age. He is not addressing believers 40 years hence, but those around 33 AD who will be His witnesses. That passage does not say anything about disciples after 70. Most believers by then would be Gentiles living well clear of Judea.

Believing Jews having escaped to Pella heeded Jesus’ warnings. Why would Jesus warn them to flee Jerusalem if they were going to be raptured outside Judea? You would expect Jesus to have said something quite different.

Then there are the remarks in John 21:21-24 regarding the beloved disciple being alive “until I come”. Note the discernment here about what Jesus actually said! Note the expectancy of the disciples about an imminent coming!

Paul at 1 Cor 11:26 says “we proclaim the Lord’s death” in the Lord’s supper “till he comes again”. Again there is nothing to suggest that disciples would cease this practice after 70 AD, is there? Paul expected a soon coming.

John 17:20.  “I pray not only for these, but also for those who believe in Me through their message.” Jesus prayer goes a lot further than for the 12 apostles but applies to all who will believe through them.

What changes did the disciples experience who lived after AD70?

In Mark 16:15 we read that He said to them, Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation—to go to everyone not just to Jews or to the current generation, and that He would work with them with signs following.

Some argue that the miraculous signs and wonders and gifts of the Holy Spirit were withdrawn sometime between 68 AD and 70. There is no evidence for this. This would mean that the apostles and believers alive at that time suddenly lost their power and authority of the Holy Spirit. That is unproven and ridiculous. Mark 16:17. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In My name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new languages. . . . . . .  lay hands on the sick, and they will get well.

It is unreasonable to believe Jesus would give us so many teachings and commands that these would only apply to ‘original’ disciples! Then there are all the passages in the Gospel of John where Jesus uses the Greek word kosmos, world. His teachings words apply to the world not just to Judea: e.g., John 1:29, 3:16, 16:8.

See also Romans 1:20, 4:13; 2 Timothy 2:2; Revelation 11:15, 17:8.

How did the events of 68-70 AD affect his disciples who were still alive?

  • It embolden them to see they were the true Israel, the Israel of God e.g., 1 Peter 2:4-10.
  • The great cleavage follows with ‘the Way’ now separate from the apostate Jews
  • Jesus’ people suffered horrific persecutions from apostate Jews—see numerous Acts passages.
  • Jewish Talmudic writers wrote against the rapidly multiplying Christians, cursing them.
  • John saw Israel as ‘the synagogue of Satan’ (Revelation 2:9) with no temple or priesthood.

There were reports of great earthquakes in the lead up to 70 AD. Scholar, John Gill comments that “at Crete, and in divers cities in Asia in the times of Nero: particularly the three cities of Phrygia, Laodicea, Hierapolis, and Colossae; which were near to each other, and are all said to perish this way, in his reign”[i]

There were wars, kingdoms against kingdoms during this time. See Josephus[ii] Jewish Wars, b. 6 chapter 9, section 3. Coffman[iii] concludes “Such things as famines, wars, and earthquakes seem to have been multiplied during that period”. Also see Albert Barnes Commentary[iv].

THE GREAT TRIBULATION

In Matthew 24:20-21 Jesus’ told his disciples that he would come immediately after “a great tribulation”: . .  pray that your flight will not be in the winter, or on a Sabbath. For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will.

Jesus told the disciples of His generation to flee Judea and escape the coming tribulation when they see the advancing Roman armies.

Many believe that this terrible time still lies in our future. I have met people who live in fear of this. Others hope they will be raptured away instead of facing this dreadful experience.  But as I will show, this unprecedented event took place long ago:

  • Jesus words are addressed to Jews, Sabbath keepers, Judeans, to flee Judea and escape this imminent tribulation. Luke (21:21) warns them to keep out of Jerusalem. They must be alert and watch for the signs Jesus indicated in order to escape (15-16) this great distress. How could this possibly apply to us?
  • Jesus’ warning is to the generation he is addressing—it is ‘your flight’. How can this refer to our future?
  • This tribulation would be like nothing previous—terrible suffering at the end of the age but Jesus’ term ‘nor ever will’ means life goes on afterwards. How can this be the end of the world?
  • The Jewish eyewitness historian, Josephus, described the incomparable horror of 68-70 AD– 3½ chaotic, awful years, in his famous work ‘Wars of the Jews’—it’s history! How can this not be what Jesus foretold?
  • Jesus warned His disciples that they would face tribulation in their witnessing about Him (Mat 24:9). In Luke’s Acts and Paul’s letters don’t we read how much the unbelieving Jews persecuted them constantly?
  •  Jesus said they were to remain faithful to the ‘end’, an end which they could clearly foresee—either the end of the current age or of their earthly lives. How could this possibly be about the end of the world?
  • On His way to the cross, Jesus said to the weeping crowds, Daughters of Jerusalem, stop weeping for Me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. For behold, the days are coming when they will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never nursed.’Then they will begin to say to the mountains ‘fall on us and to the hills ‘cover us’. (Luke 23:27ff). These people will face terrible times in their own generation, coming upon the apostate Jews—as Jesus had said, because these are days of vengeance, so that all things which are written will be fulfilled (Luke 21:22). This took place in 68-70 AD when the Jerusalem temple and city were destroyed. So how can this be the end of the world?

The word used in the Greek NT for ‘tribulation’ is thlipsis. Strongs’ Concordance lists these uses in the NT: oppression, affliction, tribulation, distress.  For example, note the following among the 45 occurances:

* Matthew 24:9 : They will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations . .

*Acts 14:22. We must enter the kingdom of God through many persecutions.

*2 Corinthians 1:4. [God ] comforts us in all our affliction so . . .

*Revelation 7:14. These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation . .

Finally, looking at Rev 7:9-14, John’s question about a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and the Lamb, is then told: These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation.” This is a different ‘great tribulation’.

So what great tribulation is this?

This is that great tribulation: The world takes it out on Jesus’ people with a vengeance. In all periods of history the most horrific things have been done to believers right up to the present day. In the world you will have tribulation (John 16:23). The awful suffering experienced now by many in China, North Korea, Iran and Muslim dominated nations—is this not for them “the great tribulation” of their lives? Won’t they all appear before the throne?

The ‘Futurist’ view I am addressing here insults and discredits these suffering saints, who can surely identify with Paul when he talks about his sufferings filling up what’s lacking in the suffering of Christ (Colossians 1:24).

The NT affirms that suffering (thlipsis, distress) is part of the Christian life and cannot be avoided. Show me any NT writer who wrote about future believers facing some great tribulation ending the world far away into the distant future.

They expected this event to happen in their generation.                         

Seeing the Son of Man

When you read Matthew 24, Jesus’ prediction that the Son of Man will come, do you believe as many do, that He will be seen with human physical eyes? In this short note I show how this does not line up with the scriptures.

The most common Greek word used for ‘see’ is horao. Strongs’ lists these uses for horao:

To see with eyes,  but also to see with the mind, to perceive, to know, to become acquainted with by experience, to experience, to look to, to take heed, beware, to care for, pay heed to.

For example in any of the following cases*, the word horao can be translated by any of the above uses.

*Mat 16:28. Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see [horaō] the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.”

*Mat 24:15. “So when you see [horaō] the abomination of desolation—spoken about by Daniel the prophet—standing in the holy place” (let the reader understand) “then those in Judea must flee . . . .

*Mat 24:30. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn. They will see [horaō] the Son of Man arriving on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

*Mat 24:33. So also you, when you see [horaō] all these things, know that he is near, right at the door.

*Mat 26:64. Jesus said to [high priest], “You have said it yourself. But I tell you, from now on you will see [horaō] the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Power and coming on the clouds of heaven.” 

 Check out Mat 24:37 and you will note that Jesus said His coming won’t be seen! Just the reverse:

Just like the days of Noah were, so the coming of the Son of Man will be . . .and they knew nothing until the flood came and took them all away. It will be the same at the coming of the Son of Man.

The Lord will not be seen! In Noah’s days they knew nothing,’ so the coming of the Son of Man will be’!

Not even Noah was said to have seen God.

And at Mat 24:43, Jesus says He comes like a thief—unexpectedly. The thief in the night conceals himself. 

But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into.

Is the thief seen? Does the thief tell you when he is coming? Does he make a noise and wake you up?

Can you show me from the scriptures where we read of the Lord coming in judgment and visibly? We can note the many visions of Daniel and John where they are unable to stand up in his presence, who ‘dwells in unapproachable light’.[1] The appearances of the Lord in the several theophanies[2] in the Old Testament are disguised or hidden from normal sight. Moses only ‘saw’ Him after He had passed (Exod 33:20-23)[3].

When Saul of Tarsus fell down at the sound of the voice of Jesus (Acts 9:7), he and his companions heard the voice but did not see Jesus—Saul saw the tremendous, glory light only.

Then Peter heard the voice only in that vision at Joppa (Acts 10:9ff). 

In Revelation, Jesus warned some gatherings of believers that he would come to them[4] but do you imagine that the Son of Man seated at the right hand of God in clouds of glory was then going to be visibly seen?

Finally, looking at Revelation 1:7b we have the same Greek word [horaō]: Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see [horaō] him . . . 

Now, can you see it? (I mean, do you get it?)
