The Vine

 

You brought a vine [Israel] out of Egypt;

You drove out the [heathen]nations and planted it [in Canaan ].

You prepared room before it,

and it took deep root and it filled the land.

The mountains were covered with the shadow of it,

and the boughs of it were like the great cedars [cedars of God ].

[Israel] sent out its boughs to the [Mediterranean] Sea and its branches to the [Euphrates] River.

Why have You broken down its hedges and walls so that all who pass by pluck from its fruit?

The boar out of the wood wastes it and the wild beast of the field feeds on it.

(Psa 80:8 -13 Ampl)

 

The Vine of the Lord

Remaining in the Vine

On the morning of the 9th of March 2002, 10 months after the Lord Yahshua the Messiah had called us, through signs in the heavens, we concluded that it was the Lord's will for us not to be part of any church. I had a dream during that same night, in which I saw the day break and the horizon was blood red just before sun rise. I did not know what this vision meant.

As I came out of the house and looked up into a beautiful, blue sky, I saw a very curious sign. I saw something, which looked like a v-shaped branch. The one branch was longer then the other. Then the word of the Lord came to me: "I am the vine. You are the branches!" I partially understood what the Lord Yahshua showed us, but it would take another 6 years, before I would understand what this sign, that day, meant. It was not revealed to us then, for it was not yet the Lord Yahshua's time to reveal those things to the earth. It would only be opened to me 6 years later. See the newsletter: The Lord's Times and Seasons - Part 3 - Taurus

Driven by the Holy Spirit, we went to a nearby park to pray and waited on the Lord. I took with me my brother and another young man. As we walked to the park, I prayed and asked the Lord God to give us wisdom and insight,

and that He would guide us in all that He desired to say to us. Then the Holy Spirit gave us the following word, as was written by Solomon: "Does not skillful and godly Wisdom cry out, and understanding raises her voice [in contrast to the loose woman]? On the top of the heights beside the way, where the paths meet, stands Wisdom [skillful and godly]; At the gates at the entrance of the town, at the coming in at the doors, she cries out: To you, O men, I call, and my voice is directed to the sons of men. O you simple and thoughtless ones, understand prudence; you [self-confident]fools, be of an understanding heart. [Isa. 32:6.] (Prov 8:1-5 Ampl)

The Holy Spirit was calling all the sons of man to be of discretion and to understand what God wanted to say to us, for He was about to give us understanding and insight, into all that God wanted to accomplish before His first coming in Yahshua the Messiah, our Lord. I asked the Lord Yahshua to shepherd and guide us as He spoke to us about His plan and will for this generation and its people.

Then, the Holy Spirit confirmed that He wanted to show us God's will, and gave us the word from the Lord Yahshua the Messiah, as was written: "I am the Good Shepherd; and I know and recognize My own, and My own know and recognize Me - Even as [truly as] the Father knows Me and I also know the Father and I am giving My [very own]life and laying it down on behalf of the sheep." (Joh 10:14-15 Ampl)

Then, as I continued to read, the Holy Spirit opened my mind to Yahshua's words, saying: "And I have other sheep [beside these]that are not of this fold. I must bring and impel those also; and they will listen to My voice and heed My call, and so there will be [they will become] one flock under one Shepherd. [Ezek. 34:23.] (John 10:17 Ampl)

The Lord reminded us through this scripture that He had not forgotten about the remnant of the Jewish people, and the covenant, which He had made with them, who still had to return to Him like sheep from another pen. While the Holy Spirit opened these things to us, my bother saw a vision of two boys, sitting on both sides of the Father, having their arms around His neck, and He having His arms around their waists. God treated us like little children, as He opened up these profound mysteries to us, which were about to unfold on the earth. Then I praised and glorified the Lord God of heaven and earth, as Yahshua once, full of joy exclaimed: "I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have concealed these things [relating to salvation]from the wise and understanding and learned, and revealed them to babes (the childish, unskilled, and untaught). Yes, Father, for such was Your gracious will and choice and good pleasure." (Luke 10:21 Ampl)

Then the Holy Spirit continued: "Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.]Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me. I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me]you can do nothing. If a person does not dwell in Me, he is thrown out like a [broken-off]branch, and withers; such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, and they are burned.If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you. When you bear (produce) much fruit, My Father is honored and glorified, and you show and prove yourselves to be true followers of Mine. (John 15:4-8 Ampl)

The Holy Spirit urged us to remain in the Father's love, just like Yahshua the Messiah also remained in His Father's love. Remaining in the love of the Lord Yahshua the Messiah is all that God in Yahshua the Messiah requires of us. He promises that if we do remain in the love of the Lord Yahshua, then we can ask the Father anything and He will answer our request according to His will.

The Wisdom of God is the foolishness of men

After this the Holy Spirit continued, guiding us to the Psalm of David, confirming what He was about to show us by divine revelation: <To the chief Musician, A Psalm or Song of David.> Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him. As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God. But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice. Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by His name YAH, and rejoice before him. (Psa 68:1-4) KJV Once more God was about to ride on the heavens or the clouds, by His Name YAH, showing signs, which would reveal mysteries to this generation of people.

Since God appeared to me the first time on the 9th of May 2001 and confirmed His word 3 days later to two of us so that we could be witnesses of these things, he chose to reveal Himself in a supernatural way, speaking through sign and symbols in the clouds.

God was about to shame the wise through the foolish. He Himself, was about to reveal things to this earth, through simple men, as was written by the apostle Paul: "For the story and message of the cross is sheer absurdity and folly to those who are perishing and on their way to perdition, but to us who are being saved it is the [manifestation of]the power of God. For it is written: "I will baffle and render useless and destroy the learning of the learned and the philosophy of the philosophers and the cleverness of the clever and the discernment of the discerning; I will frustrate and nullify [them]and bring [them]to nothing. [Isa. 29:14.]Where is the wise man (the philosopher)? Where is the scribe (the scholar)? Where is the investigator (the logician, the debater) of this present time and age? Has not God shown up the nonsense and the folly of this world's wisdom? For when the world with all its earthly wisdom failed to perceive and recognize and know God by means of its own philosophy, God in His wisdom was pleased through the foolishness of preaching [salvation, procured by Christ and to be had through Him ], to save those who believed (who clung to and trusted in and relied on Him). (1 Cor 1:18-21 Ampl)

It was as if God was mocking all the wisdom and intelligence of man. God revealed all these things to simple ordinary men, who were neither apostles, nor prophets, nor pastors nor shepherds. The only thing that Yahshua requires form us, was to always remain in Him, as branches remain in a vine, as He told His disciples to do.

God was about to glorify His own Name by revealing the most profound mystery, by means of signs in the clouds, as was prophesied by David: "Riding upon the heavens, by His Name YAH!"

Then the Lord God, by the Holy Spirit, told us what has true value in His sight, as was written by the prophet Jeremiah: "But let him who glories glory in this: that he understands and knows Me [personally and practically, directly discerning and recognizing My character ], that I am the Lord, Who practices loving-kindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth, for in these things I delight, says the Lord. [I Cor. 1:31; II Cor. 10:17.](Jer 9:24 Ampl)

Then the Lord encouraged us with His word to the prophet Isaiah, saying: Behold, I have created the smith who blows on the fire of coals and who produces a weapon for its purpose; and I have created the devastator to destroy. But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [peace, righteousness, security, triumph over opposition]is the heritage of the servants of the Lord [those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced ]; this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me [this is that which I impart to them as their justification ], says the Lord. (Isa 54:16-17 Ampl) The Lord Yahshua the Messiah, in His great mercy towards His servants, assured us that no weapon or word of judgment against those words, which He has told us to proclaim, shall prosper, but that He will refute their words, proving them to be false. He reminded us that many will reject that which He had shown us and that many will even be spiritually envious of all that He had for ordained to reveal to little children, who are foolish in the eyes of both the world and the church.

Then the Lord Yahshua, through the guidance of the Spirit of God, and His rhema word said: "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain and snow come down from the heavens, and return not there again, but water the earth and make it bring forth and sprout, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, [II Cor. 9:10.]So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless ], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. (Isa 55:8-11 Ampl) God had chosen this way of revealing things to people, so that hearts will be tested and sifted, so that His divine wisdom will bring about the desired response.

We praised the God of Heaven and earth, who granted us His righteousness, so that we may enter into His presence and grace, showing us unmerited favour and love, because of the cross of Yahshua the Messiah.

The Signs of the Anti-Christ

http://pastormikez.org/catholicceremonies.aspxThen as we looked up into the sky the Lord showed us many signs about the time of His coming. We saw the sign of the Glory of the Lord God in the heavens. While we looked we saw the sign of a German Swastika and the 'SS' appeared in the heavens. I was reminded how the Lord Yahshua had shown us a similar sign on the 10th of March 2002, 10 days earlier, of the Roman Catholic church, next to an upside down triangle.

SwastikaThen I asked my brother: "What does the Nazi's have to do with the Roman Catholics and with the upside down, demonic triangle?" We knew what these signs resembled, but did not know how it all tied together, but would find out, what the full implication of these things was, about 4 years later.

The Large Sign of the Vine of the Lord

Then we saw a large sign of something like a vine that grew out of South Africa's capital, Pretoria. We saw how this vine spread and became a huge vine that filled the whole earth. The vine grew towards the west and then the wind came and blew it back over towards the United Kingdom, Ireland and then towards Europe. As we looked at this vine coming out of South Africa, we saw how something like many olive trees sprouted out of the vine.

The wind continued to blow this large vine, which now covered the whole earth, until it grew into the north, into the Promised Land and into Israel. The Vine became a large bridge, connecting Southern Africa with Israel. While we looked, the young man who was with us, saw the sign of a bull or Taurus, appear over the vine. He sat on the vine and broke it in two. As the vine was broken off I saw a how room was made for it to be grafted back in. I was reminded how Paul in much detail explained to the church in Rome, saying: "What then [shall we conclude]? Israel failed to obtain what it sought [God's favor by obedience to the Law ]. Only the elect (those chosen few) obtained it, while the rest of them became callously indifferent (blinded, hardened, and made insensible to it). As it is written, God gave them a spirit (an attitude) of stupor, eyes that should not see and ears that should not hear, [that has continued]down to this very day." [Deut. 29:4; Isa. 29:10.](Rom 11:7-8 Ampl) After Israel hardened their hearts, by not accepting Yahshua the Messiah as their Messiah and God, their branch was allowed to be broken off, by the Spirit of the Anti-Christ - The Bull or Taurus or the Beast, as was written:

"You brought a vine [Israel] out of Egypt;

You drove out the [heathen]nations and planted it [in Canaan ].

You prepared room before it,

and it took deep root and it filled the land.

The mountains were covered with the shadow of it,

and the boughs of it were like the great cedars [cedars of God].

[Israel]sent out its boughs to the [Mediterranean]Sea and its branches to the [Euphrates]River.

Why have You broken down its hedges and walls so that all who pass by pluck from its fruit?

The boar out of the wood wastes it and the wild beast of the field feeds on it.

(Psa 80:8 -13 Ampl)

The eyes of the Jewish people were blinded and their hearts was hardened, until the second coming of Yahshua the Messiah.

Then we saw how the large broken vine, became two smaller vines - one for Israel and another for the bride of Christ. These vines grew, as if to reconnect with the original vine that was broken off, but then a strange thing happened. The one vine for Israel was grafted back into the original vine, but the other vine grew only until half way of the vine above, who resembled Israel and the church, and then seized to grow. Out of the one end of the vine that seized to grow, came two small vines or branches. We knew that these two small branches referred to the two witnesses, which were soon to be revealed. The vine or the bridge between Southern Africa and Israel was restored, but the vine and the branches for the bride of Yahshua the Messiah never became part of Israel, as was written by Paul the apostle of God: "Now if the first handful of dough offered as the firstfruits [Abraham and the patriarchs]is consecrated (holy), so is the whole mass [the nation of Israel]; and if the root [Abraham]is consecrated (holy), so are the branches. [Num. 15:19-21.]But if some of the branches were broken off, while you, a wild olive shoot, were grafted in among them to share the richness [of the root and sap]of the olive tree. Do not boast over the branches and pride yourself at their expense. If you do boast and feel superior, remember it is not you that support the root, but the root [that supports] you. You will say then, Branches were broken (pruned) off so that I might be grafted in! That is true. But they were broken (pruned) off because of their unbelief (their lack of real faith), and you are established through faith [because you do believe ]. So do not become proud and conceited, but rather stand in awe and be reverently afraid, for if God did not spare the natural branches [because of unbelief ], neither will He spare you [if you are guilty of the same offense ]. Then note and appreciate the gracious kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God's gracious kindness to you, provided you continue in His grace and abide in His kindness; otherwise you too will be cut off (pruned away). And even those others [the fallen branches, Jews], if they do not persist in [clinging to]their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God has the power to graft them in again, for if you have been cut from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and against nature grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much easier will it be to graft these natural [branches] back on [the original parent stock of] their own olive tree, lest you be self-opinionated (wise in your own conceits), I do not want you to miss this hidden truth and mystery, brethren: a hardening (insensibility) has [temporarily]befallen a part of Israel [to last]until the full number of the ingathering of the Gentiles has come in, and so all Israel will be saved. As it is written, The Deliverer will come from Zion, He will banish ungodliness from Jacob. [Isa. 59:20, 21.](Rom 11:16-26 Ampl)

This is the very same explanation, which God, through the signs in the heaven had shown us, opening up a new understanding of those things, which would soon come to pass, and how the time for the bride of Christ to depart from this earth was at hand. And the time for Israel to be grafted back into the original vine, has also now come, as was prophesied by the prophet Isaiah, saying: "Comfort, comfort My people, says your God. Speak tenderly to the heart of Jerusalem, and cry to her that her time of service and her warfare are ended, that [her punishment is accepted and]her iniquity is pardoned, that she has received [punishment]from the Lord's hand double for all her sins. A voice of one who cries: Prepare in the wilderness the way of the Lord [clear away the obstacles ]; make straight and smooth in the desert a highway for our God! [Mark 1:3.]Every valley shall be lifted and filled up, and every mountain and hill shall be made low; and the crooked and uneven shall be made straight and level, and the rough places a plain. And the glory (majesty and splendor) of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it. [Luke 3:5, 6.](Isa 40:1-5 Ampl) Once more God is sending Elijah, like he did in the time of Yahshua the Messiah, by sending John the Baptist, to prepare His people, the Jewish nation, to return to God in Yahshua the Messiah, with all their hearts.

Thus, God has a remnant which are left among the Jewish people, who will open their hearts and accept Yahshua the Messiah as their Lord and God, as was written by the apostle Paul: "So too at the present time there is a remnant (a small believing minority), selected (chosen) by grace (by God's unmerited favor and graciousness). (Rom 11:5 Ampl)

The Beginning of birth pains.

As we looked we saw what looked like a large womb in the heavens. I was reminded of the Word of our Lord Yahshua the Messiah, saying: "All this is but the beginning [the early pains] of the birth pangs [of the intolerable anguish ]. (Matt 24:8 Ampl)

As the Lord Yahshua showed us these things, He opened my heart to understand the scriptures. I understood that the sign of the womb in the heavens was the beginning of the tribulation that was prophesied by all the prophets, but that in the middle of this period, just before Israel will be grafted back into the vine, the bride will be taken away. At that time it will be like the parable of the 10 virgins that Yahshua once told about the kingdom of God, saying: "Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish (thoughtless, without forethought) and five were wise (sensible, intelligent, and prudent). For when the foolish took their lamps, they did not take any [extra]oil with them; But the wise took flasks of oil along with them [also]with their lamps. While the bridegroom lingered and was slow in coming, they all began nodding their heads, and they fell asleep. But at midnight there was a shout, Behold, the bridegroom! Go out to meet him! Then all those virgins got up and put their own lamps in order. And the foolish said to the wise, Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out. But the wise replied, There will not be enough for us and for you; go instead to the dealers and buy for yourselves. But while they were going away to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were prepared went in with him to the marriage feast; and the door was shut. Later the other virgins also came and said, Lord, Lord, open [the door]to us! But He replied, I solemnly declare to you, I do not know you [I am not acquainted with you ]. Watch therefore [give strict attention and be cautious and active ], for you know neither the day nor the hour when the Son of Man will come. (Matt 25:1 -13 Ampl)

The Lord Yahshua said that at the time of His coming, one half, 50% of His people, will be ready for His coming, while the other half, will be left behind. We must be warned to get ready, for the bridegroom is about to be revealed. We must be alert and be ready to meet the bridegroom with pure white garments.

After this the Lord showed us the great persecution that would break out and how the remaining 5 virgins will be percecuted for their faith. The Lord confirmed that many will be refined by fire and testing in those times. Thus only the bride will be ready, with her garments made white, but the general church will first be refined, through the great tribulation, as was written: "31 Behold, the [uncompromisingly]righteous shall be recompensed on earth; how much more the wicked and the sinner! And if the righteous are barely saved, what will become of the ungodly and wicked? [I Pet. 4:18.](Pro 11:31 Ampl)

In conculsion, after this, we saw another age that is soon to be revealed and will come after this current age. We saw the 1000 year millinium that was soon to arrive. We saw a magnificent sign in the heavens, of the new Jerusalem, coming out of the heavens, like a bride, beautifully dressed for her husband, in the most beautiful shades of pink. Yahshua wanted to have a deep and intimate relationship with His bride, all those who were refinded through the great tribulation, whether Jew or Gentile, as was prophesied by the aposlte John, saying, that 144 000 will be sealed out of every tribe of Israel and then: "After this I looked and a vast host appeared which no one could count, [gathered out]of every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages. These stood before the throne and before the Lamb; they were attired in white robes, with palm branches in their hands. 10 In loud voice they cried, saying, [Our]salvation is due to our God, Who is seated on the throne, and to the Lamb [to them we owe our deliverance ]! 13 Then, addressing me, one of the elders [of the heavenly Sanhedrin]said: "Who are these [people]clothed in the long white robes? And from where have they come?" 14 I replied, Sir, you know. And he said to me: "These are they who have come out of the great tribulation (persecution), and have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." [Gen. 49:11; Dan. 12:1.](Rev 7:9-10 & 13-14 Ampl)

A great persecution would break out against the christians in all the world, during this period called: The great tribulation. Many believers will be killed during this period for the sake of their faith and trust in Yahshua the Messiah.

After this another sign appeared in the heavens. The morning star appeared in the heavens and the word of the Lord came to us, as was written by the apostle Peter: "And we have the prophetic word [made]firmer still. You will do well to pay close attention to it as to a lamp shining in a dismal (squalid and dark) place, until the day breaks through [the gloom]and the Morning Star rises (comes into being) in your hearts. (2 Pet 1:19 Ampl) The Lord Yahshua the Messiah, through His word and by the Holy Spirit, urged us to pay close attention to these prophetic signs, for they were soon to be fulfilled. The Lord Yahshua also urged us not to lean on our own understanding, but to trust in Him with all our hearts.

As we walked home, we saw another sign appear in the sky, while the sun was setting in the west. We saw a cherub, with its wings pointed into the sun: "God lives between the cherubim!" I proclaimed. Then the wings of the cherubim split up into the four wind directions and linked with the original place where all had begun. God had shown us that He is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End and that He knows all ages and seasons, which will soon be revealed.

As we walked back home rejoicing, because God had appeared to us, once more, through great signs and wonders in the sky, the word of the Lord came to me, saying: "Look around you, among the nations and see! And be astonished! Astounded! For I am putting into effect a work in your days [such]that you would not believe it if it were told you." [Acts 13:40, 41.](Hab 1:5 Ampl)

The next day, a prophet stood up, in a large church in Pretoria and prophesied the very same scripture, saying: "Behold, I will do something in your days that you will not believe even if you are told!"

We need to learn to desirn the times and the seasons of the Lord Yahshua's coming. I hope that reading and studying these sign which the Holy Spirit wants to reveal to His church, in order to prepare a spotless bride, ready for the coming of her Heavenly bride groom. See the follow-up newletter: The Lord's Times and Seasons - Part 3 - Taurus.

May God bless you as you re-distribute these newsletters to as may other people so that they to may be made ready for the coming of Yahshua the Messiah.
