Holy Spirit (Restrainer) Taken Out of The Way…

The RestrainerWhat Happens After the Holy Spirit (Restrainer) is Taken Out of the Way

I had someone comment on DTW and ask what happens when the Holy Spirit (Restrainer) is removed from earth, what happens during the Tribulation.  He said;  “If your PTR doctrine was sound, how can anyone become a child of God if the Holy Spirit is taken away? Never! But still PTR doctrine indicate that the Holy Spirit is taken away.”    [DTW note:  PTR stands for Pre-Tribulation Rapture]

DTW reply:

How were people saved in the Old Testament? Does New Apostolic Reformation teaching imply that no one was saved until the Holy Spirit (the Restrainer) came to indwell believers at Pentecost 2000+ years ago?

Churchy Titbits – Overcome Satan in the Kingdom of God

Kingdom of God

Churchy Titbits:  How to overcome and rule over Satan in the Kingdom of God.

I thought it may be of some interest to those who would like to be updated on things pastors often say from their pulpits, things that do not pass the scrutiny of Scripture and are sometimes downright funny. Today’s “Churchy Titbit” comes from the pulpit of Pastor Callie Venter of the “Nuwe Lewe Kerk” (New Life Church) in Krugersdorp, South Africa. In his church’s morning service on 8th October 2017, Callie Venter said in essence that the Kingdom of God has already arrived on earth. The reasons he put forward are the following.

  1. In reference to several places where Jesus said, “The Kingdom of God is at hand” he interprets it as though it means that the Kingdom of God has already arrived on earth (also known as the Kingdom Now Theology).
  2. His reason for saying so is that fact the King of the Kingdom, Jesus Christ, lives in every believer which in turn makes every believer not only a resident in the Kingdom of God but the Kingdom itself. As such every believer is the bearer and the embodiment of God’s Kingdom and must preach the Gospel of the Kingdom so that every knee should bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord.

The Rapture and the Truth

The Rapture and the TruthThe Rapture: Context, Exegesis, Eisegesis and the Truth

The Rapture – Christians are exhorted to read and interpret biblical passages in their proper context and to avoid eisegetical interpretations of Scripture in favour of exegetical ones. Of course, all these tools are essential for an accurate understanding of many difficult passages in Scripture.

As a matter of interest, most of the present day false teachings and outright heresies are the results of context manipulation and eisegesis falsities. Nonetheless, blaming your misinterpretation of Scripture on your misunderstanding of the assumed complexities in Scripture will never exempt you from God’s righteous judgments. No one will ever be in a position to say “I misunderstood the context of such and such a passage and therefore you may not judge me.” Pay attention to what Brother Peter said,

Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. (2 Peter 3:14-16).

Jesus, would you mind stepping aside and leave us to our own resources to make a better place of our world? We have taken a mammoth task upon our shoulders and we really do not need you to achieve our ungodly and satanically inspired venture. We aim to restore all things in the world to its original Edenic state — all things include the entire creation, all things in heaven and on earth.

We are going to eradicate poverty, bring peace and stability to a war-torn and weary world and gain righteousness for all humankind. We are not merely concerned about the salvation of the soul so that people may escape this world (in the Rapture) but we are involved in the work of transforming societies on earth here and now.


Global Leadership Summit: Mega Synergy Energy Display (6-7 Oct 2017)

The Wikipedia Chosen Ones

The Global Leadership Summit at the Mosaïek Teatro (6-7 Oct 2017) in Randburg, South Africa – I have often wondered how Jesus would have chosen his disciples had He lived on our sinful little planet in 2017. He would probably decide to select three mega personalities from the corporate world, three mega best-selling authors, and three mega spiritual leaders from megachurches, and also consult one of the Internet’s most informative websites. Yep! You guessed it! I’m talking about Wikipedia.


Rhema Bible Church – Hands of Compassion, Curses you!

Rhema Bible Church - Hands of Compassion

Rhema Bible Church – Hands of Compassion

I was sent an email by someone who showed me something rather shocking regarding Rhema Bible Church’s Hands of Compassion.

She said:  “I was looking at drug rehab centers and came across Rhema Bible Church’s Hands of Compassion website, a drug rehab center run by Pastor Alan and Pastor Xana McCauley.  Rhema Bible Church is run by Pastor Ray Mccauley.

As you scroll down the page you are introduced to Hands of Compassion.  People who would search for a rehab center are people with serious dependency issues, be it alcohol, drugs etc.  On the front page they have a prayer for addicts, a pray that is supposed to be a Christian prayer but when you read it carefully you will see that this is a prayer to another god.

The first lines of each paragraph of the prayer are curses that you would pray over yourself, and these curses are hidden in plain sight.   Notice the words in CAPITAL letters.”




So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep. Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not. This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me. (John 21:15-19).

Usually, people only need to be asked once whether they love someone else, or at least once a day, and never thrice in close succession the way Jesus asked Peter. In fact, Peter was sorely grieved when his Master asked him a third time whether he loved Him. “Lord, you are the only begotten omniscient Son of God who knows everything. There is not a single thing hidden from you. In fact, you have known everything every single person would ever do and think before the foundation of the world. And yet you ask me whether I love you? Do I need to tell you that I love you when you already know all things?”

Marijuana, Christians and the Implications

Marijuana and Christians in South Africa

Marijuana Does It Cure Disease?

A while ago I was introduced to someone who has Crohn’s Disease – a chronic inflammatory autoimmune bowel disease that affects the lining of the digestive tract) it’s extremely painful.  He said that he takes marijuana oil that he gets from someone else (let’s call him a dealer) and he is sure he has been cured.  But after listening to him very closely for 2 hours I realised he was not cured.  He might have less pain or no pain, therefore he thinks he is cured.  I asked him if he gets high and he said “No, definitely not” or so he says.  He also told me that his Doctors told him if he stops taking his conventional medicine for his Crohn’s Disease and tries cannabis instead to cure him, that they were not going to treat him anymore and basically told him to not come back.

SDA Church – Seeking and Finding New Havens of Error and Deceit

SDA Church

Ellen G White

Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Horrors

We all know the idiom: “Out of the frying pan into the fire” which simply means, If you get out of one problem, but find yourself in a worse situation, you are out of the frying pan, into the fire.

Many Christians who have become disillusioned with the Dutch Reformed Church are abandoning their “mother church” and seeking new havens in other churches. Unfortunately, they have become so captivated by the friendliness, warmth, and congeniality of the members of other churches that they are inadvertently caught up in other and sometimes worse heresies and false doctrines without realizing it. No wonder the Bible warns:

So have I become your enemy by telling you the truth? These men [the Judaizers] eagerly seek you [to entrap you with honeyed words and attention, to win you over to their philosophy], not honorably [for their purpose is not honorable or worthy of consideration]. They want to isolate you [from us who oppose them] so that you will seek them. (Galatians 4:16-17; Amplified Bible).


What Greater Sign is there? Revelations 12 & Sep 2017

September 2017 - great signI have had quite a few questions about the Great Sign that will take place in the heavens in September 2017 over Israel.  Prophecy News Watch’s director Kade Hawkins and Global Watch Weekly (who publish all sorts of fantastical ‘prophetic’ information) have worked together previously, and have been pushing this story to the public and getting everyone extremely anxious and excited;  first about the pattern of the 4 blood moons or lunar eclipses falling on biblical feast days and now the Great Sign that will take place in the heavens on the 23rd September 2017.

Kade Hawkins (who worked for Chuck Missler and was on the board of Koinonia House for 16 years) started Prophecy News Watch publishing prophecy news only. They built up a massive database of people subscribing to their mailing list.  I made a remark years ago that Prophecy News Watch would soon start to advertise false teacher’s teachings to lead people astray, and within 2 years it happened – they started to advertise books and DVDs to all sorts of unbiblical teachers and their teachings.

Leuens kom hoofsaaklik in mooi geskenkies toegedraai. Sommige van hulle is selfs oordek met die beste Bybel leeromslag en is met potsierlike strikkies toegedraai, net om jou ingebore behoefte na aanvaarding te troetel. Paulus praat daarvan in Galasiërs 4. Die aanhaling kom uit die Amplified Bible omdat dit die kerninhoud van die gedeelte soveel beter omskryf.

17 These men [the Judaizers] eagerly seek you [to entrap you with honeyed words and attention, to win you over to their philosophy], not honorably [for their purpose is not honorable or worthy of consideration]. They want to isolate you [from us who oppose them] so that you will seek them. 18 Now it is always pleasant to be eagerly sought after [provided that it is] for a good purpose, and not just when I am with you [seeking you myself—but beware of the others doing it]. 19 My little children, for whom I am again in [the pains of] labor until Christ is [completely and permanently] formed within you— 20 how I wish that I were with you now and could change my tone, because I am perplexed in regard to you.


THE SHACK – William Paul Young (Part 2)


If you haven’t read “THE SHACK – William Paul Young (Part 1)” please do so here.

No other person on earth suffered as much as Jesus Christ when He was on earth. Are you going to say to Him. “ME TOO . . . ., Mr. Wise guy? We all endure some kind of suffering, pain, misery and various kinds of sorrows in this world. It is unavoidable, as the unpleasant saying goes. However, Scripture also says,

But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters. Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. (1 Peter 4:15-16).
