Nations Standing at the Crossroads!
Shalom Partner and Friend of Israel,
“Are they ashamed of the abomination they have committed? NO, they have NO shame at all; they do NOT even know how to blush! So, they will fall among the fallen; when I (God) punish them, they WILL collapse,” says the LORD. This is what the Lord says; ‘Stand at the crossroads and look, ask for the ancient paths; where is the good way? Then walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls!’ But they said; ‘We will NOT walk in it!’ I (God) appointed watchmen over you and said, ‘Listen for the sound of the ram’s horn.’ But they answered, ‘We will not listen!’ –Jeremiah 6:15-17.
Jeremiah told the people of his day to ASK for those “ancient paths” and to seek them out …and to walk in them. He urged his Nation, to return to the pathways of FAITH exemplified by Abel, by Enoch, by Abraham, by Moses. The “ANCIENT PATHS” refers to the good way that is morally good. The first word, “Stand” implies “strength.” As believers we don't fall down in the ways of the wickedness of the world but instead, we stand in them - strong in the Lord …NO matter what has come in our path of life. (Ephesians 6:10-13, 1 Corinthians 15:1-2; 16:13). Interestingly, we note that in the book of Acts, the teachings of the Lord are called "the Way" (Acts 19:9,23).
Jeremiah’s message in this verse must have sounded to Judah something …like “an out of tune instrument” in an orchestra. It happened when Judah was close to celebrating 1,000 years of existence as a nation and years of great progress. They had been “set free” from the slavery of Egypt …and Israel had risen above many of the nations around them. They had also made contact with these neighbouring nations and by this they had enriched their cultural life and economy. Now over all this advancement, like the unexpected “sound of a trumpet blast,” the Prophet warns; “Stand in the crossroads, LOOK (see the way that you will be/have taken) ask for the old (ancient) paths (the good way – God’s Way), walk therein …and only then will you shall find rest for your soul.” BUT they REFUSED! Of course, they indignantly turned down the Prophet Jeremiah. “We will NOT listen – NOT walk therein,” they said; “This Prophet does NOT know what he is talking about - he is behind the times - an ‘old fogey,’ living in the wrong age.” It had become foreign and a strange idea to them in days of prosperity and advancement!
And, how similar it is to this generation and especially the last decade? Today we live in an “age of advancement of Technology” (Big Tech) - a “modern” or “post-modern” age. In the “age of Science” becoming a godless new religion and where scientists/doctors and (Big Pharm) Medicine now control the Nations “like gods!” They are simply attempting to remove the Creator - Almighty God and His Word – the Bible! Yes, science and technology has done much good …but today it is being used for “wickedness” and love of mammon (money) is “greed” by the already wealthy who control world leaders having sold out their nations and people …and this evil has become clearer since 2020. The technology advancement is also in communication and travelling “to and fro” is just like the Bible warned it would be in the Last Days (Daniel 12:4) and final generation is the here!
Human knowledge apart from God, is flawed… The Bible also refers to it as "worthless" because it isn’t tempered by love (1 Corinthians 13:2). The knowledge mankind possesses tends to make one proud; "Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up" – 1 Corinthians 8:1. Therefore, the pursuit of knowledge for its own sake, without seeking God, is foolishness; "Then I applied myself to the understanding of wisdom . . . but I learned that this, too, is a chasing after the wind. For with much wisdom comes much sorrow; the more knowledge, the more grief" – Ecclesiastes -18. Worldly knowledge is a false knowledge that is opposed to the truth, and Paul urges us to; "Turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge, which some have professed and in so doing have wandered from the faith" – 1 Timothy -21. Human knowledge is opposed to God’s knowledge and therefore is NO knowledge at all - rather, it is foolishness!
This generation is also a time of "SELF" and an "age of recreation and entertainment, tolerance, peace and an age where technology in Churches match world advancement but this too has brought godless appeasement in which the way we worship or read the Word of God. Today it is viewed by many that there are… "many ways to God!" And, in all this, comes the Prophet’s Jeremiah’s word of warning to us today; "Stand in the way, ask for the old paths, walk therein." BUT, sadly, the answer of many is the same, "We will not walk therein!" For a true believer we have made a choice and our choice is simple …we Will Walk in God’s Ways and His PATH because it implies having a relationship with Abba Father, God and not the world and their godless ways. Therefore, to know Christ is to have FAITH in Him, to follow Him, to have a relationship with Him, to love and be loved by Him. (John 14:7; 1 Corinthians 8:3; Galatians 4:9; 2 Timothy 2:19. Increasing in the knowledge of God is part of maturity of every believer and is something we ALL are to experience as we "grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Yeshua - Jesus Christ! (2 Peter 3:18)
Miracles are NOT always measured by how fantastic and un-explainable or supernatural they are… sometimes the "miracle" is simply - God meeting us at a moment of need! Today the world has entered its 3rd year of a "plan-demic" (which by the way was in the making for many years before) instated by a virus manufactured in a laboratory in
Over these past 2-years we’ve seen chaos and unrest overtake the world... So, why is it so important that we the true Church - true Bible believing believers look to Biblical truth and the certainty of God’s authority and Faithfulness for comfort and encouragement in 2022? God tells us that everything that CAN be “shaken” WILL be “shaken” and this “shaking” is not necessarily a bad thing as it reminds us of what is sure and forever (Eternal) …and what is not! When things are calm, we tend to get comfortable and rely on the world and science. But “shaking” has the effect of bringing us closer to God! With all that has been shaken, the Word of God - the love of God - the promise of God …and the faithfulness of God - WILL remain the same, unmoved, and rock solid. So, in these End-times we must anchor ourselves all the more strongly to God and His promises just as a ship anchors itself to a rock in the midst of the waves. You see the waves WILL roar BUT there are times when calm returns because ultimately our Lord is in control of the waves as He controls the tides, seasons …and our lives too.
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people” - Proverbs . This generation has seen the continuation of what the Bible Prophesies will happen in the Last Days – “the great falling away” or “apostasy.” We see it especially in
The great falling away…? The Church which is soon to be “the Bride of Christ” has in many ways in recent years grown comfortable, apathetic, diluted, like the world and much of it (NOT all) has ceased to be an active agent and light for its people, Israel and the nations …BUT, instead has sadly been on the defence, affected and compromised by the world. The Lord wants that to change! Why? Because the anti-God forces that war against our FAITH, the Church, and religious FREEDOMS of believers are growing in strength and brazenness and persecution is on the rise since 2020. If we, the people of God – His Church, do NOT stand boldly against the dark forces of evil now …then we may NOT have that chance again! And, we are ALL called to stand with
Let’s examine the life of Elijah the Prophet (1 Kings 17:1) …
What happened when drought and famine spread through the land for 3-years? During this time, Elijah was in hiding and Jezebel had put the other Prophets of God to death. In the 3rd year - God told Elijah to return to Ahab and end the drought! God was upset about the EVIL ways of King Ahab of
The days of Elijah… We don't know the exact method God used for the Prophet Elijah and we also don’t know for sure WHY - God allowed this plan-demic in our generation? But clearly, in His own way since only God knows what lies ahead. God ministered to the needs of His despondent Prophet …and God will meet our needs too! However, God later questioned Elijah twice (1 Kings 19:9, 13) however Elijah responded with the same negative answer both times (verses 10, 14). In his state of “emotional distress,” Elijah was NOT very responsive to God! But, Abba Father - God was patient with Elijah and did what was necessary to bring him to a place where he could respond. You see, God is NOT the kind of God who beats us into submission …and He does NOT coerce is to respond to Him nor force our loyalty. That is our decision! God will work to bring us to a position where we can respond to Him …and sometimes He may work in unusual or unexpected ways …or He may work through very ordinary people in everyday circumstances.
What had happened to Elijah? Elijah had given up! He left his country in the north and travelled south. When he got to the border of
As Elijah journeyed toward Horeb he still had NOT fully recovered from his “emotional valley” …but he was moving! Sometimes that is enough and an encouragement for us too in these times! We cannot always expect a “quick fix” to our discouragements, or healing, or justice which may seem slow. Sometimes “beginning the process” is enough! As we wait upon our Lord as He WILL bring EVERY secret thing that is done in “darkness” into “light.” Daily we are now seeing that the EVIL committed by the Globalists (Jezebels) and their cohorts as God is revealing everything in His timing – NOT ours! Since September 2019 much EVIL is being exposed! In this Shemitah Year that ends in September, 2022 we believe more will be revealed!
The very name Mount “Horeb” or Mount “Sinai” evoked images of a powerful and awesome God who strode boldly into history overthrowing kingdoms and working fantastic miracles before the people's eyes… Elijah was on that very
God has acted …and continues to act …and will act in marvellous ways in our world even when we are unable to see it… Sometimes God works in wonderful miracles of healing or deliverance immediately …but not always - not even usually. Most of us will never see the “fire fall” like it did for Elijah on
God called Elijah back to involvement with the nitty-gritty-things of life as he was still God’s Prophet… God would anoint kings and stir up rebellion against Ahab and Jezebel. God was at work in their time– and He is at work in our time too! Much of it was done through the efforts of a restored Elijah and his apprentice Elisha. Yes, God is at work in unseen ways in our world and to us believers it would not always be in the spectacular. Where we may see only one Prophet (Elijah) who does spectacular feats God has 7,000 servants who quietly do His work in the world even today; “Yet I (God) reserve seven thousand in Israel - all whose knees have NOT bowed down to Baal and whose mouths have not kissed him.” – 1 King 19:18. How does God work in our world? This story does not have all the answers …but, it does have one - God works through ordinary faithful men and women who serve Him in all areas of life and in dark or hard times. God often speaks silently through people and some who not long before were ready to give up. There are more miracles performed where our humanity meets God's grace than this world dream of or realizes!

For the most part God's Prophets have been drawn into the wilderness away from civilization… And, it’s there in the rugged desolate place they are “set apart” for a special work of God. In the “wilderness” is where Almighty God fashions the character of His servants, making them obedient vessels, who, in season and out of season, are ready for the Masters use. They become under His Holy protection! For most of God’s people the “wilderness” is seen as - dense forests, deserts and mountains that is only for the adventurous in spirit. But it can also become vicious to all forms of life! It can become harsh for humans and a place of loneliness with animals and plants where only the strongest can survive. No soft disguises of civilization can survive here. “Wilderness life” reveals the nature of its captives until the true substance is exposed - be it good or evil. It is NOT a place for the foolhardy, or the faint-hearted. But for a few the wilderness becomes a place of communion …for there is another wind that moves amongst the hidden canyons and dry river beds. Just as the Eagle waits to feel “the breath of the desert” beneath his wings …so God’s Prophets retreat to the wilderness to await communion with the “Winds of His Spirit.”
The “wilderness” was the realm in which Old Testament Prophets such as; Elijah, Elisha, John the Baptist and even our Lord Yeshua (Jesus) moved “in the power of the Spirit of the Living God” … They mounted up “with wings as Eagles,” soaring into the unknown realms of God’s will and Word …and it is there that the rugged conditions of the wilderness became their moulding ground. Alone, they wandered chose to wander through their “desert experience” in forests and mountains, awaiting God's Command. Each of them was God’s chosen “mouthpiece” for the time in which they were living and afterwards when speaking they could clearly proclaim “…thus, said the Lord” to their Generation.”
Since 2020, Covid-19 has taught us all much! It has exposed the Globalists New World Order, it has exposed the lust of POWER and GREED for money in most World Government Leaders as the wealthy getting wealthier across the world at the people’s expense …and in a way “we the people” - were EXILED by them into our homes and for many it became a “desert” of loneliness, cut off from society, elderly parents and loved ones …whilst Globalists around the world were getting wealthier at the cost of lives, businesses and freedoms etc. Everything we ‘all once held dear or important to us were stripped away almost overnight. It happened simultaneously across the whole world pre-planned by evil people. Yet, as believers in Christ we saw God’s amazing protection, provision …and things of the world NO longer mattered! God has become the centre of our lives - our families lives and this is “God’s Heartbeat too!”
Today we stand at the precipice or CROSSROADS… A Global change or “RESET” is being orchestrated by the wicked wealthy Luciferin Globalists controlling “power-hungry” World Leaders and “corporations” planned by “secret societies” to fully enforce and/or eventually introduce everyone to a Universal Vaccination requirement Health Passport to “MARK” everyone with their Digital ID …and eventually a microchip in the hand with a consequent contact tracing of the populations of the entire world. Those who do NOT accept their measures (especially the Church) may eventually be confined in detention camps or placed under “house arrest” (Lockdown) …and/or their assets be confiscated. This is NOT science fiction! The Bible warned us this would take place in the End of Days! There will be the greatest separation of believers in the last of the Last Days - between those who appease and surrender to the secular culture and those who stand for righteousness, holiness and the Word of the Lord. The pressure to conform and to be liked by the world will be so intense! We MUST stand firm in truth and grace!
You see, those people calling for “a Great Reset” are wicked and are using the Wuhan Virus as a justification means to bring about complete overhaul of the GLOBAL Economy! They are also using it as an excuse to move quickly toward - “Global Governance Totalitarianism.” In this process the Globalists use the “promise of freedoms” with their untested vaccination/boosters’ shots …only if we are in compliance with their protocols. In reality, this is a battle between “good and evil,” …between the “light of Christ” and the “darkness of Satan.” Such tyranny of Totalitarian Control ultimately WILL lead to the rise of the Antichrist and the Empire of the Beast just as predicted in the Bible for the Last Days!
Today, we are ALL standing at ANCIENT crossroads… “Then those who feared the Lord talked with each other, and the Lord listened and heard. A scroll of remembrance was written in his presence concerning those who feared the Lord and honoured his name. “On the day when I act,” says the Lord Almighty; “they will be my treasured possession. I will spare them, just as a father has compassion and spares his son who serves him. And you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not!” – Malachi 3:16-18. Today we can clearly see the distinction between those who serve God and those who don’t! It’s not unusual that God’s people were drawn “mysteriously” in His Spirit to a “wilderness experience” in these Last Days. And, here lies the challenge for us all – the times in which we are living in need people who like Elijah will stand before God. People who will respond to the call of Yeshua (Jesus) from
The final judgement of God already casts a shadow in the “days of Elijah” – 3 ½ Years where God sent drought spoiled the plans of “economic growth” for the people of
The time for Christ’s return is closer than when we first believed… And “the Day of the Lord” is certainly closer than when Joel wrote his Prophecy to
As more and more things happen that move us closer to the return of Yeshua (Jesus) how should believers be preparing their hearts and engaging the world right now? We need to remind ourselves that the world is NOT our home - this is our mission field. We’re NOT here to worry or live in FEAR – we’re here to spread the Gospel and shine His light. And we need to remind ourselves that NO matter what is going on around us – in the world – it’s not the final story and that the last word belongs to God. We are each bound for Heaven. While we’re in this world, our job is to bring as many souls as possible to get there with us. “Blow a shofar in Zion. Sound an alarm on My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of the LORD is coming – surely it is near!” – Joel 2:1.
God’s Word is true! He IS watching to see how the nations are treating His people – Israel. God will have mercy on Israel through Gentile believers acting as mediators towards them! This is one of the most amazing revelations ever given to the Church – an opportunity to do something that carries the highest priority in the heart of God. Yet, sadly, so few have seen the potential and the rewards of serving God in this manner - as agents of mercy to Israel and the Jewish people! Israel was and still is despised today and a despised nation continually turning away from God BUT nothing ever altered the purpose of God for that nation. The despised element is always a noticeable element in the purpose of God. When the Saviour of the world came, He came of that despised nation; like Israel… He Himself was; “despised and rejected by men,” …and there is that despised element; “…things that are despised God has chosen,” 1 Corinthians 1:28. Now, more than at any time is the time to support Israel and the Jewish people - the Lord’s Brethren! We are witnessing the nations and people turning their backs on Israel. Thank you for your prayers and generous financial support especially during these very difficult times. With “lockdown” and difficult “recovery” still lying ahead we ARE reminded that the Wuhan Corona Virus has caused many dire needs and continue to increase here in Israel upon the already most vulnerable! Once again – Thank you!
We hope that you enjoy and become more informed by our work. We serve an awesome God and we are humbled by this opportunity to bring you this information. With Shalom to you and your family always,
