New super-virus hits Mideast computers; Israel is prime suspect
Tuesday, May 29, 2012 | Ryan Jones

A new computer virus being described as the most sophisticated cyber-weapon in history has begun tearing through government and other computers in Iran, Syria, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the Palestinian-controlled territories.

Dubbed "Flame," the new virus contains 20 times more code than the Stuxnet virus that infected Iran's nuclear program two years ago, according to Internet security company Kapersky. Stuxnet was previously marveled over for its incredible ability to adapt and alter its attacks, and it was concluded that only a national government would have the resources to develop such a program.

Flame is said to contain some of the code for Stuxnet, creating a clear link between the two viruses. Flame may also have been introduced into the region at the same time as Stuxnet, but has remained dormant until now. All of this again points to Israel, which hinted in the past that it was behind Stuxnet.

Speaking to Army Radio on Tuesday, Israeli Minister for Strategic Affairs Moshe Yaalon would not give a definitive response as to whether or not Israel was behind Flame, but did say, "Israel has been blessed with a prolific hi-tech sector that opens possibilities in both the business and security fields."

Currently, Flame is believed to be conducting targeted attacks on specific data. The virus collects its target data and then deletes it. To date, most of the infected computer systems are in Iran.

The virus was discovered by Kapersky analysts, who were shocked that Flame remained hidden for so long despite its enormous 20 gigabyte size.
"It’s pretty fantastic and incredible in complexity," Kapersky's chief security expert, Alexander Gostev, told Wired magazine. "It will take us 10 years to fully understand everything."

At the same time Flame was discovered and made public, Israel announced that it would invest an additional $13 million in national cyber defenses. Much of those funds will be awarded to private Israeli companies that can demonstrate innovative methods for dealing with new cyber threats.

Netanyahu deputy hints at Israeli involvement in Iran cyber attack

In Israel's first official comment on Flame worm, which was revealed on Monday to have infected computers in Iran and various Arab countries, Vice PM Ya'alon says such steps 'reasonable' in face of Iranian threat.

By Haaretz | May.29, 2012 |
Vice Prime Minister and Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya’alon hinted on Monday at possible Israeli involvement in the Flame bug, which was revealed to have targeted computers in Iran and the West Bank on Monday.

"Anyone who sees the Iranian threat as a significant threat – it's reasonable [to assume] that he will take various steps, including these, to harm it," Ya’alon said Tuesday morning in an interview with Army Radio. "Israel was blessed as being a country rich with high-tech, these tools that we take pride in open up all kinds of opportunities for us," he added.

According to experts at internet security company Kaspersky who first detected the virus, Flame was most likely created by a state actor, and is capable of transferring files, screenshots, audio recordings and keystrokes from infected computers.

Ilan Proimovich, Kaspersky's representative in Israel, told Army Radio that the worm "does not operate independently, but is controlled by a remote computer, and thus only when it receives an order does it start working. For this reason, it is difficult to detect, because it is not always active." Calling it a "masterpiece of programming," he said it was sophisticated enough to change its characteristics and develop according to orders.

Kaspersky said on Monday that Flame shared certain characteristics with Stuxnet, the bug that attacked Iranian centrifuges and was discovered in 2010. Unlike Stuxnet, however, which was designed to cause damage to computerized equipment, Flame is meant to collect information. The source of the bug is as yet unknown.

Not everyone is comfortable about God speaking to them in dreams, but it does appear to be happening more and more in these latter days, and particularly in the Arab and Muslim countries, and again in Africa. Below is an article by Rick Wiles from "Trunews", and it is certainly thought-provoking at the very least, and possibly prophetic! (Neville).

"The Holy Spirit gave me a stunning vision in 1998 of America’s demise when He showed me American cities on fire and refugees staggering out of the burning urban centers. God commissioned me that day in April 1998 to warn the American people that time was running out for this nation to repent and return to obey God’s commandments and ways. I have spent the last 14 years in full-time ministry proclaiming that message.

Since the beginning of 2012, I have detected a marked intensity in the warnings from God. They are coming to me from various sources and ways. Many people are experiencing disturbing dreams. Others are seeing visions. In recent weeks the warnings have taken on an alarming new level of urgency. Reports of prophetic dreams and visions are flooding into our offices daily in recent weeks. Without a doubt, I am convinced that one or more catastrophic events will strike the USA before the end of 2012.

One reoccurring theme I have seen in these various prophetic warnings that have been forwarded to me recently are two general dates in 2012: July/August and November/December. Upon careful examination of these many warnings, it appears that God is telling His saints in America that they must have final preparations in place by late July or early August. I do not know the reason. Perhaps there will be travel restrictions imposed this summer. Again, I do not know the reason.

What I do know is that a growing number of mature, devout Christian men and women are privately telling me that God is strongly telling them to have everything in place in July or August. Many of them are selling everything and fleeing the USA.

The second date is fall 2012. Many of the dreams and visions indicate that great woe is coming to the USA in November – notably shortly after the presidential election. In particular, many of the prophetic dreams hint at trouble during the Thanksgiving holiday season.

Several days ago I received three more prophetic dreams from two people who listen to the Trunews radio program. They arrived in my email box simultaneously. I was stunned by the dire warnings of imminent judgment, bloodshed, and captivity. Unless God intervenes, I do not believe the USA will be a free nation beyond November 2012.

I contacted the two recipients of these dreams and asked for permission to release them to the general public. Both agreed on the condition that I do not release their names or places of residence.
The first person received two dreams three weeks apart. This person is a newly naturalized American citizen. The first dream arrived in the first week of May 2012. The second part of the dream came on Sunday night, May 20. Likewise, the second person received a prophetic dream on Monday night, May 21, 2012. All three dreams were sent to me on Tuesday May 22, 2012.

Below are the dreams. Do not dismiss these warnings. Instead, seek God with all your heart about what He desires you to do in the coming weeks. Please forward the dreams to everybody you know. You may have only weeks to prepare for a time of horrific violent bloodshed in the streets of America later this year.
Know this: America has forgotten the God who made the nation great. He will now strip away America’s greatness. Perhaps Americans will rediscover His greatness in their poverty and captivity.

Rick Wiles

FIRST PERSON: DREAM #1 – Received first week of May 2012

I saw patriots dressed in battle uniform (from the 1700's) perhaps they were pilgrims. They were on an island. Their leader was hoisting the American flag and it went half mast. Then I saw a man on a balcony looking through a telescope and I could see these patriots through his lens. He was a dictator, an evil man. The next thing I knew he had a canon and fired at the men. I didn't see them get hit but I knew they had died.

Then I was on another island. It was more like a forest. I saw a pilgrim woman dressed in a long black dress. She was with child and looked very distressed. She was gathering grain in her skirt. I asked her what she was doing. She replied that she was hungry and had to feed her baby, but there wasn't much food. She warned me "they" were watching her. There were eyes watching us. I felt we were encircled by something like a barbed wire fence or so, not sure, but I knew she couldn't leave the island and she was being watched.

Then I realized there were other islands and there were pilgrims/patriots on them and they were stuck there. They couldn't get out, and they were all being watched. It wasn't a good thing to be on those islands. Originally, I thought this dream meant that Christians would flee to islands, but would be trapped as they united to fight the dictator. The second dream, however, revealed they were not on literal islands, but instead, they had fled to places they thought were “safe zones” or “places of refuge.”

FIRST PERSON: DREAM #2 – Received May 20, 2012

My spouse and I were speaking with some old men. They were good men. Kind, very clever and very smart men. One talked about how he built his house with his hands. I saw the house it was made of massive beautiful wood, and it had an ocean front - it was so well built. He was proud of that house. Then another old man was referring to another friend who managed to save $1 million Dollars in his lifetime. He was very old. Then one of them said "they are coming to get our homes, you know" "yes, that's the first thing they're taking, our homes" and maybe I heard him say "when you hear rumors of that it will start to get very bad" or "when that happens it will get very bad". There was a feeling of anxiety but we were still very casual, having fun, even laughing. But all of a sudden everything changed as they were talking.

I suddenly saw hoards of people gathered together in some coastal area. In front of us was a city called "Christian City.” It was what everyone thought was a safe harbor, a city of refuge. There was a sandbar right outside the city - it was on an island. It was a city everyone fled to for safety. It was magnificent; it had huge buildings; it appeared to be fortified. We were assembled with a huge crowd. I knew all these people surrounding me and my spouse were kind people.  They had to be Christians.

We were, however, like cattle. There was so much chaos I had a hard time thinking, but I kept hearing a voice in my head saying "Go!" or "Leave" but I was so confused. The voices of the people were so much louder than the voice in my head. Everyone was saying something at the same time. Then something happened. All of a sudden I found myself in a vessel with my spouse and all these people. We were like cattle placed in that vessel against our will. There were evil men, I couldn't see their faces, but they surrounded us. They wore uniforms. They were armed and they were watching us. More people were forced into the vessel against their will.

None of us could believe what was happening. I was so very shocked. I then saw the same pioneer (pilgrim) woman in the black dress on the vessel with me. She was the woman I saw in my other dream. She and I were talking. She was telling me something but I can't remember a word she said, I don't even think I could hear what she was saying. Then I put my hand on her shoulder or her chest and I saw the future.
I saw her on a bed, she was ashen, like a Holocaust victim and I was there with her on her death bed. She must have died. I took my hand off her and I was where I was, back on the vessel. Suddenly the city in front of us was burning. There are no words to describe the feelings I felt in the dream, because my feelings were so intense. It was a feeling of complete and utter fear, grief - deep grief and disbelief all at once. Suddenly, I saw a multitude of hands from the people trapped in the vessel reach for the city. I reached too. We were all wailing, mourning, and reaching for that beautiful and beloved city. I didn't want to leave it. I remember thinking this is America, I just got here, I love this country so much, it's my home and now it's gone. It was as if my conscious mind connected that city to America in my sleep.

As our hands reached for the burning city, I saw there were children's hands, small hands, old people's hands, so many hands all reaching for the city. My spouse told me to not worry. He tried to assure me that we would escape from the vessel and run back to the island to hide somewhere. He was trying to calm me, but we were both very sad and scared. I knew we would die because there was no way out. There was an indescribable presence of evil.

Suddenly all the hands that were stretching forth to hold onto the burning city started waving goodbye. We all waved goodbye to the City of America that was burning to the ground. We knew the evil authorities were taking us away in the vessels. We didn’t know where they were taking us. We were very afraid. I couldn’t tell which emotion was stronger: grief, dread, or disbelief. I woke up from the dream crying for America.
Upon waking up, I was deeply disturbed by the dream. I spent the day (Monday May 21) in deep prayer and intercession. I believe this is the interpretation the Holy Spirit gave me. It must be God’s thoughts, but I can’t imagine me saying such things. I have never liked the “gloom and doom” message, but these two dreams have shaken me to the core of my soul. Here is what I believe the Lord told me.

Which kingdom do you belong to? The test that is here is the test of obedience. Are you bound to the conveniences of this world? Are you so wedded to the world’s luxuries you’ve known in your lifetime that you cannot let go of it?

When you said "Lord, I will follow You to the ends of the earth. I will do anything for you. I will lay down my life, everything!" Did you say that out of emotion or did you mean it? The test that is here is the test of true sacrifice. Will you follow the Lord wherever He leads you? Will you follow Him to an unknown land where you must learn another people’s culture and language that is so foreign to your lifestyle? Will you truly trust the Hand that leads you, or will you turn it away? The Lord's hand is outstretched. For now, His mercy is calling you. That time will soon end. His hand will still be outstretched – but for judgment. Which hand will you take? Mercy or judgment?

This is the test: To see if He truly is your Lord and if you truly are of His Kingdom. God weeps over this nation. His heart is broken. He has knocked at the hearts of your people, but they would not listen. Even those who profess to love Him in reality love this life more than Him. The dreams they claim are His are really their own. They suffer from a cacophony of confusion. Voices, there are so many voices. It seems too difficult to discern the Shepherd's voice. Voices in your head, voices from the enemy….voices of people who will not let go of this kingdom and will drag you down with them. Voices everywhere! Be still and listen to His voice.

Watch the time, watch the season. Judgment will strike when you least expect it. People will be merry. They will ignore the air of anxiety. They will speak of the good times of days gone by. Judgment will strike. Confusion…so much confusion! You will be taken captive against your will. Many good people will suffer. Many innocent people will be killed. Oh the children, the innocent children who will long to go home. (I cannot continue writing what I feel. It is too heavy).

The test that will soon be here will split marrow from bone. It will separate His true disciples who will follow Him and live from those who will die because of their greed. They follow false dreams and pride of their heart because in the deepest chambers of their hearts they refuse to surrender to Him. Listen! Listen while there is still time. The window is closing quickly. There will be no safe havens! Dreams of a better future…dreams of great achievements are now gone! They will never return. The veneer is ready to break.

There is no hiding place in the darkness. There is no future in God's judgment. He calls the righteous out. This is the test. It is the beginning of birth pangs. The world will soon change. Though the great change is near, people are in disbelief. They see only the glory of the past. They long for America’s past glory to be their future. This is the test that divides flesh and spirit. The true man – whether flesh or spirit – will decide his or her fate. This nation will soon witness its fall. God’s hand of mercy is stretched out for you. Which kingdom will you serve? Where your treasure is, there your heart will be too.

SECOND PERSON: Dream received May 21, 2012

I had this dream last night…early morning actually because it woke me up when it was finished.  It was around 5:30-6am.  It was very disturbing.  I felt a great deal of sorrow and mourning when I woke up.  It was very heavy.  The dream was a series of “scenes” in which I saw back to back.  It made me very sad.


Scene #1
A family was sitting at a dinner table.  Mom, dad, baby in high chair and 2 small children. They were enjoying a meal. A bomb was placed down in the middle of the table and they completely ignored it. The bomb was round and large – about the size of a basketball.  The family kept eating. At first the mother and father slightly glimpsed at it but then they ignored it. The children started drawing on it with crayons. The parents were interacting with their children and laughing. Then the bomb started ticking and the ticking became more intense, louder and faster. Their eating slowed down and the parents looked at each other in fear.Then the ticking stopped and the parents grabbed each other’s hands and held on to their children. The bomb exploded.

Scene #2
Men were in a yard throwing a baseball. They were playing a game of baseball together. It wasn’t professional baseball. It was like a bunch of family members together playing ball. In the middle of throwing the ball, the ball exchanged to a grenade. It looked like a grenade was thrown in to the game and the regular game ball fell by the side. The men at first looked at the grenade but paid no attention to it and continued to throw it….they continued with the game. Then it went off.

Scene #3
Men were running down a football field toward the goal. People in the stands were cheering. It was a professional football game. As they were running toward the goal a large missile came through the air, skidded in the dirt and dug in to the dirt right beside the goal. No one paid any attention to it being there…they were so engrossed with the amazing play and the game. The crowd was standing and cheering. I saw a couple of the football players (as they were running) look at each other and the missile that was buried half way in to the dirt. But they kept on running. Moments after the touchdown, the missile exploded. (The team was wearing a dark red color and I thought I saw something gold).

Scene #4
Children were playing on the school playground. A fence surrounded the entire parimeter of the school.  Suddenly men dressed in long white gowns and white head-dresses started coming out of the woods. Others got out of cars. They made their way to the fence and surrounded the school. The teachers on the playground watched the men gather. They had a look of uncertainty and worry but they said and did nothing. They just stood there and watched as the children continued to play. It seemed like a loud echoing sound was heard…then all at once in unison they jumped over the fence, pulled machetes from their gowns and began their terror. I don’t want to write what I saw.

Scene #5
Men and women that looked very ashen and thin were walking toward what looked like on the outside a bank. They walked up to the bank and put their money through a slot that was accepting their “deposit.”  They seemed sad and lifeless. Part of the bank became transparent so I could see in to it. It was totally destroyed on the inside….there was nothing. It looked like a bomb went off on the inside – it was a bottomless pit. There was nothing there – no floor. I saw the people putting their money into the slot. The money merely floated down into the bottomless pit.

I asked the Lord when these things will happen. I’m frightened. I don’t want this to happen to us and our children. The Lord said “Go back and look again.” I revisited every single scene. This is what I saw:
The family at the table:  They were dressed in sweaters and on their plates was cranberry sauce. The flowers on the table were not “spring or summer” flowers – they were darker in color – looked more fall.

The men playing ball were wearing jackets.The people in the crowds at the football game were wearing coats, some had scarves on, there was a light drizzle of snow that was dissipating on the ground.  I saw the breath of the players.

The children at the playground: The children were dressed warmly with heavy jackets. The men at the fence – their gowns were blowing heavily in the wind – the wind was very heavy.
The people at the bank were wearing coats and jackets.

The final scene:  I was using my hand to scrape away a thin layer of ice from a window so I could peer through….when I cleared the window I saw a large city with smoke coming from its buildings.  I remember saying in great sorrow, “My America!  My America!” 
I woke up immediately and felt a great sense of sorrow and mourning.

Its is with great sadness, that I have to announce that Canadian Bible Prophecy expert, Grant Jeffrey died over the weekend, aged only 64.

He was one of my favourite Prophecy teachers on television, and he often appeared on TBN, Daystar, God TV, and some of the other Christian stations.

I never quite understand why the Lord takes some of the best Christian speakers and teachers early, but what I do know is that earth is a sadder place today with the passing of Grant, and that Heaven has welcomed home another one of our modern day heroes.

He joins the likes of Barry Smith, David Watson, and Roger Price who were all taken from us "before their time", but we rest in the knowledge that God's Will has been done, and we will understand fully one day, when we stand before Him, the Perfect Judge.

Below is a fuller article from the excellent "Prophecy News Headlines":

"Grant Jeffrey, a Canadian Bible teacher known as an expert on Bible prophecies, an advocate of dispensationalism and host of TBN's "Bible Prophecy Revealed," passed away over the weekend after a cardiac arrest. He was 64.

"He is now without pain, he is healed and now with his Heavenly Father. He will be missed sorely," reads a statement published on the Grant Jeffrey Ministries website. The funeral will be held in Toronto, at a location to be announced soon, ministry officials said.

Jeffrey was hospitalized in Toronto, Canada, on May 7, in critical condition. The ministry said in a statement Saturday that Jeffrey died after suffering a cardiac arrest Friday night. He is survived by his wife Kaye, with whom he had been in full-time ministry since 1988.

Though a controversial figure, Jeffrey was popular and had many followers.

His 27 books, both fiction and non-fiction, were translated into 24 languages and sold an estimated seven million copies worldwide, according to the ministry. They were put out by giant publishing houses like Harper Collins, Zondervan and Bantam. Some of the best-selling titles include those focusing on prophecies, like Armageddon, Prince of Darkness, Final Warning or Countdown to Apocalypse, but also others, like Finding Financial Freedom (Jeffrey was an accredited financial expert) and The War on Terror (politics and history were other topics he indulged in). Among the latest titles are The Next World War, Shadow Government and The Global Warming Deception.

His novel based on prophetic theories, By Dawn's Early Light, co-authored by Angela Hunt, received a Christy Award for the Best Prophetic Fiction novel of 1999. The same year another of Jeffrey's books, The Millennium Meltdown, reached second on Publishers Weekly's bestseller list for religious paperbacks.

Jeffrey was working on a new book, One Nation Under Attack, at the time of his passing. It was to be released next year.

The popular author was a dispensationalist, who believes the Rapture – where the church will be caught up to meet Jesus – will occur right before a period of great tribulation; afterward, Jesus will return again with the saints for his final manifestation and reign for a thousand years.

He has argued, "Some critics have claimed that those who teach the hope of the pretribulation rapture are leaving Christians unprepared for the possibility of the coming persecution of the Tribulation period. However, in thirty-five years of teaching Bible prophecy, I have not witnessed pretribulation Rapture teachers instructing Christians that they are immune from end-time persecution. The prophecy teachers, myself included, who believe God promises that Christians will escape 'wrath of God' in the Tribulation often warn believers that persecution is coming, even in North America, if the Lord tarries much longer."

Other roles he has served in include chairman of Frontier Research Publications, Inc., for more than 20 years; public speaker at prophecy conferences around the world; part-time teacher of eschatology at several colleges; and host of the 30-minute show "Bible Prophecy Revealed" on TBN since 2007, which was broadcast twice a week. The show explored "the fascinating prophecies that point to the soon return of Jesus Christ" and demonstrated "the supernatural nature of the Scriptures." He also appeared often as a guest on other TV and radio shows.

The author embarked on multiple research trips to the Middle East and held interviews with military and intelligence experts, including Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Shimon Peres.

Jeffrey's passion for research led him to acquire a personal library of over 7,000 books on prophecy, theology and biblical archeology".

We were  very pleased to receive, at very short notice, the dynamic JACOB PRASCH from Moriel Ministries for just one meeting at our  ZION CHURCH in TALYWAIN, PONTYPOOL on his very busy schedule, last Sunday on May 13th.

Jacob, who is pictured in our photo gallery at the foot of this page, has suffered health wise recently and has had to cut down on his speaking engagements and overseas bookings. Despite this he took time out to perform a mini South Wales tour over the weekend, speaking at the Berean Fellowship in Mountain Ash on Saturday afternoon, then he spoke twice on the Saturday evening and the Sunday morning at The Church Of The Redeemer in Swansea, before travelling on to Pontypool to speak to our faithful saints in Talywain in the evening.

Jacob took as his subject the fabulous little book of RUTH from the Old Testament at ZION, and for over an hour and a half he had his audience of approx eighty saints gripped as he opened up this small portion of Scripture with an in depth exposition.

As well as expounding on the delightful story of the gentile Ruth being rescued and saved by her Kinsman Redeemer, the Jew Boaz, the Moriel teacher and broadcsater from New York gave us a marvellous "type and shadow" picture of how us gentiles (the Bride of Christ) are being saved by THE TRUE KINSMAN REDEEMER, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, the greatest Jew of all time (foreshadowed in our illustration by Boaz, the human kinsman redeemer), before we are married to JESUS at the Wedding Feast of the Lamb of God.

There was also a marvellous time of questions and answers from the excited audience, and it is quite amazing how this great man of God can answer just about every question thrown at him with a sound and solid Biblical answer, which no one can argue with! He answered questions on the state of the Church in the West today, and how apostasy  is rampant in most of the mainstream churches; on the state of current Israel, how two thirds of the nation will be destroyed in the Tribulation before MESSIAH YESHUA Returns to Jerusalem to redeem them; the state of Revelation Television and why he and many other good preachers and expositors have pulled out from teaching on this TV station, and many other fascinating questions and subjects.

He stayed on to join in the food and fellowship, as well as marketing many of the products and materials from Moriel Ministries. The Praise and Worship was led by the splendid Sheila Mather, the national prayer co-ordinator for Wales for the Ebenezer Operation Exodus organisation, and Sheila too had a stand where she was able to share her materials with many people.

All in all, it was a lovely and quite emotional occasion, and many people commented afterwards how much they enjoyed the ministry, the fellowship, and the warm feeling generated by the presence of the Holy Spirit. We give all the praise and glory to our great God and Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Shalom In Yeshua,

PS. Our good friend Tim Donnelly did a DVD recording of this meeting, and despite several small glitches, a watchable "freebie" is available. Please email me if you would like a copy.

The newly formed Swindon branch of the PWMI held their second meeting on May 12th, when the PWMI National Chairman, the Rev Glyn Taylor led the proceedings.

Even more people attended this gathering than the initial opening on the 25th February, and supporters travelled from Wales, Bristol, Cheltenham, Melksham and other surrounding areas to help Tony and Diane McLellan continue their new venture as they seek to do the Lord's will for them in Wiltshire.

Rev Taylor titled his address as"The Signs Of The Times", and proceeded to look at events that have happened in the world recently, and are still happening before our very eyes today before the Rapture takes place, followed by the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ to Jerusalem, in Israel.

He sub-divided his message into five sections, and talked in depth about International Signs; Political Signs; Providential Signs; Social Signs; and Spiritual Signs. He looked at well known passages from Matthew 24; Second Thessalonians Chapter Two; plus two sections from First and Second Timothy, to back up his claims from these five sections of the Word of God.

Good food and fellowship followed the meeting, which was held at the St. Aldhelm's Centre, Edgeware Road, Swindon, SN1 1QS. The third Swindon meeting is to be held at this same venue on Thursday, June 7th when the excellent Brian Gemmell from The Bible Prophecy Foundation will minister, starting at 7.30pm. Please phone Tony or Diane on 07931 421157 for more details.

Maranatha Blessings,


We were delighted to have Pastor Jon Ikin making his first appearances at our PWMI branches in Newport and Pontypool in May. Jon has ministered several times at our PWMI branches in Ebbw Vale, Caldicot, and Bristol, therefore it was a real privilege to have him with us over the weekend of May 4th and 5th. 

Jon, who is pictured in our photo gallery below, has just moved on from Pastoring the Ebenezer Evangelical Church in Weymouth, Dorset and is now in the process of putting the finishing touches as he prepares his new work for the Lord. He is taking over the Pastorate of the Union Chapel Evangelical Church, Combe Down in Bath in the near future, and he thanks all readers of this blog for their prayers following our advertisement for him several months ago.

On Friday May 4th, forty five saints assembled at the Salvation Army Hall in Central Newport to hear Jon deliver a dynamic message on "ANTICHRIST: SATAN'S RELIGIOUS WARRIOR", based on the fascinating prophecy in Daniel 11: 36-45.

On Saturday May 5th, Jon became the third speaker at our new PWMI branch in Talywain, Pontypool, and he gave two excellent addresses on the end times programme.

The first session was titled "THINGS THAT MUST PRECEDE THE TRIBULATION", based on 2Thessalonians Chapter 2, and he gave us an insightful glimpse into what is happening in the world today, and things to look out for in the near future as prophesied in the Bible before the Tribulation takes place. 

Jon's second session was named "GOD'S JUDGEMENT ON ANTI-SEMITISM", based on the small book of Obadiah from the Old Testament. The hatred of the Jewish nation, God's Chosen People, is on the rise again (see our video clip of this on this blog), and the young Pastor from Bath explained that things are going to get worse for this tiny nation, about the same size as Wales.

The Edomites were the main focus of his talk, but he stressed that all nations that come against Israel will be judged, and many destroyed (see Psalm 83, Isaiah 17, and Ezek 38 & 39) until Jesus returns to Jerusalem to redeem this nation when "All Israel Shall Be Saved". All three meetings were Powerful Powerpoint Presentations, which brought the sessions even more to life, there were some lively Q&A sessions, plenty of good food and fellowship, and we give thanks to the Lord for blessing Jon's ministry to us throughout the weekend.

Shalom In Yeshua,

Please read this heart-wrenching letter from a young Pastor and his wife in London, via the excellent website of my good friends Alan and Pat Franklin. It can be found at

It is quite a shocking letter, for it not only depicts the path many people are taking in our country these days, but many of the people he refers to are Christians and born again belivers! Quite alarming!

Alan writes:
This message came in from a young Christian friend:

“Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus! ….“Since we spoke I have become a student pastor at an independent Baptist church in London. The teaching and ethos of the church are great but I am really struggling with all that is going on in this country and I feel that there is nobody with whom I can share my views without being called a racist/bigot/fascist.

 “The borough I live in is extremely liberal and 'tolerant' and to openly admit to views like mine could land me in a lot of trouble. My wife understands me and shares all my views but we are feeling very isolated and lonely here. Even Christian friends whom we regarded as 'sound' believers seem to becoming more 'tolerant' towards things which they previously stood firm on.

 “A good example of this is the Baptist church which I grew up in which is shortly to have a vote on allowing women to be pastors. My wife and I are in our early thirties but we realize that this is a direct contradiction of the Bible's clear teaching. We fear for the church that we love and are dismayed that so many people seem to be wavering in their opinions and are becoming more 'open minded' when it comes to issues such as homosexuality, other religions, Israel etc.

“I know that all these things are hallmarks of the end times and that we should lift up our heads and wait for our Lord's return. However, I cannot tell you how grieved I am to see people I love and respect gradually departing from the truth whilst all along thinking that they are genuinely honoring God in doing so. I hate the way that this country is going, yet what makes it harder is that so many 'Christians' do not understand what is going on. I honestly believe that we are being sucked into a totalitarian state (as you describe in your books) but one which is made all the more sinister in that it wears the smiley face of 'tolerance.'

 “I hate to see the way that the way of life that I love is being destroyed and that our country is being meekly handed over to others who care nothing for its culture and Christian heritage. I find the way that London and other places is changing is oppressive and also the way that English people constantly have our identity mocked and derided by the elite.
“I imagine that you can identify with much of this. I know that I can be quite negative and depressive and that I should live in the joy of the Lord, not in fear of the future. All the same, I am struggling to cope at the moment.
“I hope that you don't mind me sharing all this with you. It has actually made me feel better already to be able to 'unload' in this way. I would just ask that you and Pat remember us in your prayers. We are coming to the end of our placement and are looking for a biblical church where we can serve the Lord as pastor and wife. At the moment life in London seems intolerable and it is exacerbated by the fact that whilst many Christians sail on by in blissful ignorance, we know something of what is going on in this country today and what some of the agendas are.
“May the Lord continue to bless you in your life and ministry,
Regards…. Alan adds: If any church wants a fine young pastor I will pass his name and contact number on!

As for my friend’s worry about women preachers, he is right. If those pushing the feminist agenda in churches read the Bible the SHEologians might find a few scriptures not to their liking. They think women can do anything men can do, but the Bible says: “Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.”  1 Timothy 2:11,12.

 As Pat writes in our book Goodbye America, Goodbye Britain (which you can buy from this website if you haven’t got a copy!): “These scriptures teach that women are not to have a public leadership ministry in the church, but there is still plenty we can do.  Jesus loves us and a woman (Mary Magdalene) was privileged to be the first person on earth to see Him after He rose from the dead.  Mary was on a mission of mercy, to take care of a practical need, and what divine favor she found!  There certainly is scope for merciful acts today.”

 The signs of the times are all around - money meltdown, (Spain, Greece etc) a great push for homosexuality to be accepted as just another lifestyle choice, the destruction of the family, the sewage-like surge of permissiveness and so on. Time is short. Men have no solutions but are just postponing the inevitable.
 Paul wrote to Timothy about the moral collapse the End Times would bring: “But know this, that in the last days difficult times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers  of God, having a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; and avoid such men as these.” 2 Timothy 3: 1-5.

Just as before the Flood and before Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed, life will carry on, with eating, drinking, marrying and money making  until the rapture suddenly takes us out of the increasing chaos (Luke 17: 26- 37).

In Luke 21: 34;36 The Lord warns believers to be careful of our priorities immediately prior to the rapture: “Be on guard, that your hearts may not be weighted down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day cone on you suddenly like a trap; For it will come upon all those who dwell on the face of the earth. But keep on the alert at all times, praying in order that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

The signs –as in the time of Noah - clearly indicate that we are on the threshold of what is going to be the most terrible time in human history — a time of unprecedented horror, the Great Tribulation. A one-world government will soon be established with total control over all commerce. During this time a dictator referred to in the Scriptures as 'the man of lawlessness’ , ‘The Man Of Sin’ etc will be responsible for killing around half the world's population during the first half of the Tribulation. And during the second half, he will murder two-thirds of the Jewish people. My estimate is that around three quarters of the world’s population will die in those seven years.

The Second Psalm speaks of the end times world of rebellion against God and this is what we are now seeing, plus Satanically-inspired worldwide anti-Semitism. But God laughs at their antics….verse 4:
The threat against Israel looms large and has immense prophetic significance. Israel’s Chief of Staff has pointed out that Israel is the only country in the world that another nation – Iran – has said must be destroyed, and which is building nuclear weapons to do just that. Will Israel make a pre-emptive strike on Iran’s numerous nuclear sites? If so, when? It could be this year, which could lead to a sequence of prophecies being rapidly fulfilled.

In his first letter the Apostle John wrote these words to the true believers: (I John 2:18) “ Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have arisen; from this we know that it is the last hour.”

 John wrote that over 1900 years ago yet it is significant how accurately they capture the spirit of these last days. If there is a peaceful interlude now it is an uneasy peace, just as Israel is even now awaiting the next onslaught, attacks which will continue and intensify. Jets are flying practice runs over northern Israel as I speak.

 The Apostle Paul warned that we must take heed when people babble about peace and safety. Their peace is an illusion, as Israel’s is. In Ist Thessalonians 5;3 he tells us: “While they are saying ‘Peace and Safety’ then destruction will come upon them suddenly like birth pangs upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.”

 Paul is speaking of the return of our Lord and was telling the church to be prepared – not to be lulled to sleep in the expectation of the rapture. The time of the antichrist is almost upon us and this is no time for us to rest. But there is good news in the midst of all this trouble, for the message of the Bible is that we who are believers are going to win in the end. The Tribulation will be cut short at the end of seven years with the triumphant return of Jesus. He will destroy the Antichrist and will replace him as the ruler of this world, bringing peace, righteousness and justice.
And that's not all the good news. The Bible teaches that believers are going to be taken out of this world before before the Tribulation begins. Christians will not have to face the Antichrist and his horrors.
The world is getting darker ands the antichrist spirit is abroad…in December the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution about combating intolerance, discrimination and violence on the grounds of religious belief. So far so good. But this was sponsored by the 57 nations of the Organization of Islamic Co-operation and is aimed at preventing slander of Islam- which means outlawing making statements any Muslim would dislike.

Later this year the EU is hosting a meeting to follow up on the Islamics’ bid to impose “blasphemy legislation” on all the EU to criminalize “defamation of Islam.” Yet Christianity is defamed every day on TV, radio and so on. Perhaps ten per cent of the EU population is now Islamic- and it is a young ten per cent.  Yet the good news is- Islam will not rule the world!

The Lord and his faithful church will do that for 1000 years! The church of Jesus Christ in these End Times is  a “remnant church,” which should not surprise or dismay us. Luke 18 verse 8: quotes Jesus asking: “However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?” The way the question is put suggests the answer is “not much.” When many of those who love their success-driven churches go broke and lose their jobs, when serious trouble comes, will they still have faith? It depends on what their faith is placed in.

These are people who give the impression they are on the side of Jesus but they do not act in accordance with His words, which is precisely how the antichrist spirit will be manifest. Antichrist will give the impression to many that he is Christ, by being a benefactor and bringing peace, before his true nature as a son of the devil emerges.

There are many people who call themselves “Christians” but some have believed another gospel, the wrong gospel, which is no gospel at all and which will not save anyone.  Some worship another Jesus, not the real Jesus. Only those who have believed the simple, true gospel and been born again of the Holy Spirit are Christians.

All the others are impostors who have rejected the narrow way of salvation and gone some other way.  If they have added anything at all (like sacraments or church membership) to the simple gospel, they are believing another gospel. Our salvation depends solely on our faith in Jesus, with nothing added and nothing subtracted.  If they are worshiping a communion wafer, they are worshiping another Jesus, not the real Jesus.

The wheat and the tares grow together and look pretty much alike at first glance, but they are not alike.  The wheat, representing those who have believed the true gospel, has useful “fruit.” (the spiritual fruits of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance – Galatians 5:22,23).   The tares (weeds), representing false Christians, look a lot like wheat, but they have no fruit.  They might have charm, but charm is deceptive, and that charming exterior will vanish when times of stress come.  They might do some good works, but good works are like filthy rags in God’s sight unless they are filtered through faith in Jesus – the real Jesus.  Only then will our good works count for anything in Heaven.

Around the world real Christians are under persecution. In Britain we are mainly just mocked at present. Our troubles are never greater than our Helper. Jesus said: (John ) “In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” The victor of Calvary is with us as John says in his first epistle (1 John 4:4) “You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.”The world is getting darker, closer to its destruction. It’s a few seconds to and we must learn to trust the Lord completely. God is still on the throne and prayer changes things.

In John 6: 16-20 we read of the disciples in grave danger.“Now when evening came, His disciples went down to the sea. And after getting into a boat, they started to cross the sea at Capernaum. And it had already become dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them. And the sea began to be stirred  up, because a strong wind was blowing. When therefore they had rowed three or four miles, they beheld Jesus walking on the sea and drawing near to the boat; and they were frightened. But He said to them, ‘it is I, do not be afraid.’ ”

Sometimes storms blow up, but Jesus’ disciples on the Sea of Galilee rowed into the dark. The storm scared them, but they a glorious destination, Capernaum – Jesus’ home during his time on earth.
Matthew 9:1 calls it “His own city.”

Fear and uncertainty will grow as it becomes more and more obvious that the world is out of man’s control.
Jesus spoke of his coming again in great power and glory but he said something else had to happen first (Luke )… “Men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming on the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken”.

However, Romans says that in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.
Time and again Christians in the End Times will turn to the Lord in prayer and be helped. Jesus is there at crisis points. The people of the world are often full of fear but have no comforter to turn to. The children of God can overcome fear in the name of Jesus.

However, Jesus did not promise us a small patch of heaven on earth, to quietly till until His return. This is actually an appealing prospect for me, as I look out on the garden. It is tempting to spend time there and while away the day.

However, we are given gifts to use. Jesus placed us- all of you- in this demon influenced world to spread the Gospel in word and deed to those who are not yet believers. Evil is increasing alarmingly in the world and ignorance and propaganda is promoted by our government, in the guise of learning. But we who are His are on our way to the Lord’s house, His home. On the broad path almost anything is tolerated. The only thing the world won’t tolerate is the Gospel Truth.The broad way, the world’s way, leads to destruction. It is based on lies. The narrow way is the Jesus way – He is the Truth. Absolute truth.

The Lord is preparing the believers for His soon coming. He is taking the true church out of the apostate church. Why? Because the spirit of Laodicea is at work in the nominal church.
Paul wrote to Timothy, in his first letter- (1 Timothy 4:1-3) “But the Spirit explicitly says that in latter times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, By means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience with a branding iron, Men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth.”

Here we see, among others, the Catholic church, a major part of the Great Whore Church of the last days – forbidding marriage, banning meat on Fridays and so on. God calls their ideas “doctrines of demons,” yet most of the church in Britain today will happily join with them in ecumenical events. If you disagree you will probably be called a bigot or worse. Look on our website for the Table of Truth, or get our book Cults and Isms: True or False? From our web shop. It examines and dismisses, with full scriptural references, the claims of cults and false religions.

The church at Laodicea was smug, self satisfied – a very purpose driven place. Revelation describes it like this: “Because you say I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing, and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked.

There are churches today which have  big numbers. Some are even good churches. Some are following business-like formulas for success, which means people in pews. But these established churches can be lonely places. And how good is the teaching? What do even the ministers really know about the Bible? True life and warmth can only be found with a personal relationship with Jesus. Trends like The Emerging Church bring the New Age and mysticism into what passes for Christianity today. We are warned to take heed that no man deceives us- deception is the hallmark of the End Times church.

Those who like labyrinths and mysticism should read Leviticus 10: 1-2: “Now Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took their respective firepans, and after putting fire in them, placed incense on it and offered strange fire before the Lord, which He had not commanded them. And fire came out from the presence of the Lord and consumed them, and they died before the Lord.”

This is how God judged two sons of the high priest! Yet there is strange fire in churches today. Fake blessings, fake revelations, fake prophecies, false manifestations of the spirit. We need to watch for it and beware. No church is safe from it.

The Lord made this offer to Laodicea: “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him and will sup with him and he with Me.” (Revelation 3:20.)
Although we seem small and unimportant, we are not alone. The Creator of the universe is with us, in us and watching over us. If we trust in Him we will have an eternal reward. Remember that the grass withers, the flower fades but the word of God shall stand forever, according to Isaiah 40:8.
Writing to the Corinthian church, Paul had this to say: “While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”

Visible reality all around us is often bad or just disappointing. But this world is not our home. We are in it but not of it.  In the pages of the Bible we read of “evidence of things not seen.”
In 2 Kings Elisha was in the city of Dothan and the King of Syria was surrounding the city with a great force of horsemen and chariots. Elisha’s servant is afraid, but Elisha tells him that there are more on the Israelites’ side than are against them. Elisha asks God to open the man’s spiritual eyes and he sees a mountain full of the chariots of fire and horses of Israel. When Syria, Iran or any other country  next attacks Israel it will discover this all over again.

Our five senses will die with us- they are temporary. The invisible is what counts – this is what the Bible is all about. Spiritual realities are a very different story to what we see in the world and right now, in Heaven, Jesus is preparing for His return in triumph. He is also preparing a place for us.

Maranatha- Come, Lord Jesus.
