The Biblical Definition of “Truth”
Source: “Messiah – Volume 1 – Understanding His Life and Teachings In Hebraic Context” by Avi Ben Mordechai, pages 87-89. This book is no longer available from Coming Home - A Biblical Hebraic Outreach Teaching Ministry from Avi Ben Mordechai. It is out of print.
NOTE: I have added my comments in square brackets as such [ ].
We have all heard definitions given for different words written in the Scriptures. The Scriptures are our best source for defining its own words. In this Torah teaching, we will be looking at the word “Truth.”
Throughout this study, you will notice the use of Hebrew names and terms with the English term noted. The purpose of this is to expose you to some Hebrew names and terms to help you down the road to start thinking like a Hebrew. After all, our Scriptures were originally written in Hebrew and some parts in Aramaic. Recently, a scroll of the book of Mattityahu (Matthew) was discovered to be written in Hebrew. I have also been told that other New Covenant/Testament books have been discovered that were written in Hebrew. They are located in a hostile country and some people are looking for a way to bring them out. It is my opinion that all the Scriptures were originally written in Hebrew and then translated into Greek and other languages.
Not only is the Law (the Torah) a source of light but it is also the L-rd’s [Yeshua’s] embodiment of truth. All which is true, right, good, holy, and pure in this world is measured by the greatest truth that G-d [Yahweh] has displayed: Torah. Again, in our Tanakh [Old Covenant/Testament] dictionary we find this sampling of the biblical definition of truth:
Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and Thy law is truth. (Mizmor [Psalm] 119:142) [Emphasis mine]
The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity. (Malachi 2:6, KJV) [Emphasis mine]
Again, in Hebrew, the word “law” used in these passages is Torah:
(HaMelech [King] David said to Shlomo [Solomon]) … keep the charge of the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, to keep His statutes, His commandments, His ordinances, and His testimonies, according to what is written in the law of Moses, that you may succeed in all that you do and wherever you turn, so that the Lord may carry out His promise which He spoke concerning me, saying, “If your sons are careful of their way, to walk before Me in truth with all their heart and with all their soul, you shall not lack a man on the throne of Israel.” (Melechim Aleph [1 Kings] 2:3-4) [Emphasis mine]
And do not take the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, For I wait for Thine ordinances. So I will keep Thy law continually, forever and ever. (Mizmor [Psalm] 119:43-44) [Emphasis mine]
I will bow down toward Thy holy temple, and give thanks to Thy name for Thy lovingkindness and Thy truth; for Thou hast magnified Thy word according to all Thy name. (Mizmor [Psalm] 138:2) [Emphasis mine]
Thou art near, O Lord, and all Thy commandments are truth. (Mizmor [Psalm] 119:151 [Emphasis mine]
Established on the everlasting premise that the Moasic Torah of the L-rd [Master] is truth, HaMashiach [the Messiah] Y’shua [Yeshua/Jesus] prayed to His Father on behalf of His “students”;
Sanctify them in the truth; Thy word is truth. (Yochanan [John] 17:17 [Emphasis mine]
If the Father answered Y’shua’s [Yeshua’s/Jesus’] request, and I believe He did, then it means we who choose to receive Y’shua [Yeshua/Jesus] as HaMashiach [the Messiah] will also receive the Torah which in turn sanctifies us and sets us apart in the world. And what is the Torah? It is the Word. And what is the “Word”? It is truth. And what is “Truth”? It is the Torah! With this understanding the teachings of Y’shua [Yeshua/Jesus] come alive [Emphasis mine]:
Pilate therefore said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I come into the world, to bear witness to the truth (Moasic Torah). Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” Pilate said to Him, “What is truth?” (Yochanan [John] 18:37-38) [Emphasis mine]
Jesus therefore was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you abide in My word (Moasic Torah), then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free,” (Yochanan [John] 8:31-32) [Emphasis mine]
Just in case you missed it, notice that Y’shua [Yeshua/Jesus] also defined the word freedom for us when He said, “and the truth shall make you free.” Since we know Torah is truth then we know that Torah observance is true freedom; anything else is bondage. This explains Sha’ul’s [Paul’s] terminology in Galatians 5:1 which is a teaching on Yochanan [John] 8:31-32 and Mizmor [Psalm] 119:32, 45. [Emphasis mine]
Finally from the learned Torah scholars of ancient Judaism we have this sampling on the link between Torah and truth:
…[Thereupon] he said unto me: “Listen attentively [to] what you [are about to] hear.” And I heard them say: “Moses and his Torah are truth….” (Baba Bathra 74a)
R. Johanan said to him…He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, prosperity and honour. “Truth” is Torah, for it is said: Buy the truth and sell it not. (Berechoth 5b and Mishle (Proverbs) 23:23. Also see Avodah Zerah 4b.)
I hope this sheds some light upon the Biblical definition of “Truth” compared to what man has defined “Truth” to be. It makes a big difference when we use the Bible as our dictionary. Especially the Old Covenant/Testament since the New Covenant/Testament did not exist at the time Yeshua/Jesus was here.

WHO IS JESUS REALLY?
August 29, 2020
Job 9 – 10 Acts 3 +
Please compare these Old Testament statements with these of the New:
Job it talking about our CREATOR:
Job 9:8 Which alone spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea.
Matthew is also speaking of our CREATOR:
Matthew 14:26 And when the disciples saw HIM walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.
Matthew 14:27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
Matthew 14:28 And Peter answered HIM and said, Lord, if it be Thou, bid me come unto Thee on the water.
Matthew 14:29 And HE said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
Job is still talking about our CREATOR:
Job 9:11 Lo, HE goeth by me, and I see HIM not: HE passeth on also, but I perceive HIM not.
Luke is also talking about our CREATOR:
Luke 4:28 And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath,
Luke 4:29 And rose up, and thrust HIM out of the city, and led HIM unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast HIM down headlong.
Luke 4:30 But HE passing through the midst of them went HIS way,
and again in John:
John 8:59 Then took they up stones to cast at HIM: but Jesus hid HIMself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
Job speaks for you and me:
Job 9:32 For HE [Yeshua ha Mashiyach] is not a man, as I am,....
Precious ones, our Messiah/CREATOR IS unlike any other human being. If you will pardon me for saying so, here is my understanding of the “virgin birth.” I believe that Yeshua (Jesus) “passed through” HIS mother’s birth canal — unlike any other human being and that she was still a virgin when she and Joseph consummated their marriage — providing Joseph with undeniable evidence that she was INDEED a virgin at the conception and delivery of our CREATOR. Yeshua’s ½ brothers and sisters were sired by Joseph; however, Yeshua’s FATHER is not human, only HIS mother. The late Ron Eldon Wyatt excavated directly beneath the crucifixion site in Jerusalem and claimed to have found the Ark of the Covenant with Messiah’s BLOOD on the right hand of the Mercy Seat, as well as the dried BLOOD trail which flowed from the stake down through the rent ROCK (as stated in Matthew 27:51) down through the earthquake crack onto the Mercy Seat, and here is what Ron said about That BLOOD:
(4 ½ minutes of Ron’s you tube video presentation)
Ron Wyatt talking about JESUS blood sample
It is not my calling to convince anyone of Mr. Wyatt’s validity; however, his finding of the real Noah’s Ark location (in spite of great religious criticism) and the finding of the real Red Sea crossing sight (in spite of great religious criticism) and the finding of the real Mt Sinai (in spite of great religious criticism) each site being validated by MANY archeologists since Ron found them — these things strongly convince me that Ron is genuine in his finding of The BLOOD. I’ve been fooled many times and am not staking my salvation on this find; however, it is worth consideration :o)) Now, dearly Beloved, if we may get back to our Scripture:
Are we living in the “last days”? Frequent chit-chat on the street seems to suggest that this is the general consensus. Question: Is this planet millions and billions of years old and things have merely happened by chance OR is Isaiah a genuine Prophet of the CREATOR when Isaiah said:
Isaiah 46:8 Remember this, and shew yourselves men: bring it again to mind, O ye transgressors.
Isaiah 46:9 Remember the former things of old: for I am ALE [your CREATOR], and there is none else; I am ELohim [singular/plural your CREATOR], and there is none like ME,
Isaiah 46:10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: ....
“Declaring the end from the beginning” ??? Let’s quickly review:
Genesis 1:2 And the earth BECAME without form, and void; [very close to the “beginning” right?]
Possibly your translation says, “And the earth was without form and void;” and I would like to point out the problem with this. The word, “was,” is where Luciferians like to shoehorn in their evolutionary theory of millions and billions of years between solar day ONE and solar day TWO. Both words, BECAME and was, are translated from the same Hebrew WORD, as seen in the Dead Sea Scrolls:
And the definition of this WORD is given to us by James Strong:
A primitive root (compare H1933); to exist, that is, be or become, come to pass (always emphatic, and not a mere copula or auxiliary): - beacon [as the SIGNAL in these “last days”!], X altogether, be (-come, accomplished, committed, like), break, cause, come (to pass) [but, not yet, as Isaiah IS TELLING US!], continue, do, faint, fall, + follow, happen, X have, last, pertain, quit (one-) self, require, X use.
TODAY, global powers have enough nuclear warheads to make this earth BECOME
WITHOUT FORM AND VOID!! HELLO!!!
Again, (in spite of great religious criticism) I believe this planet is 6,000 years old, convinced by the limiting factors of the moon’s former closer distance from the earth, the earth’s former faster rotation, the size and rate of growth of the Great Barrier Reef, etcetera; not to mention the Sabbath (day) in conjunction with our Apostle Peter’s statement (of years):
2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with YHVH as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
Our Apostle Peter is telling us, emphatically! “be not ignorant of this one thing”!
Peter is telling us: Do NOT be stupid with religious deception of the last days!!! Millions and billions of years are a Luciferian fairy tale [even as the Vatican’s “Lucifer device” in the Large Binocular Telescope on Mt Graham Arizona! detecting space beings coming with a better gospel!! ya think? That’s Bovine Scatology!!!]. Coming back to REALITY, The WORD of GOD tells us EXACTLY how old this planet is, if by no other means than, by the ages of the dads and their genealogies in Genesis chapter 5: Adam to Noah/Abraham(Noah was still alive when Abraham was 10 years old) is 2,000 years. Noah/Abraham to Yeshua is 2,000 years, and Yeshua to you and me is 2,000 years. If my 3rd grade math serves me well, this is 6,000 years.
Job speaks to us; and then, his religious buddies rebut Job, and then Job speaks some more and I love him :o)) Job is our “eternal” Sibling in Yeshua, as Job speaks of Yeshua :o)))
Flipping the pages to the book of Acts chapter 3, the whole chapter is AWEsome; and yet, the last verse tells us:
Acts 3:26 Unto you first YHVH, having raised up HIS Son Yeshua, sent Him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.
“iniquities”? What, pray tell, are “iniquities ”?? Strong’s G4189 tells us that iniquity is sin and I have to ask, what is sin?? Is smoking cigarettes a sin??? Some religions say yes and some say no; BUT, what does the Bible say that sin is??? Sin is our violation of TORAH and 1 John 3:4 says, “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the TORAH: for sin is the transgression of the TORAH” [not the Takanot = man-made law = papal BULL].
The following teaching is beautiful :o))
1 John 3:4, as I have noted many times in the past, provides for us the primary biblical definition of sin, especially under the banner of the new covenant. Most English translations of the text render John’s statement something like this: Whoever commits sin transgresses the law, for sin is the transgression of the law or Whoever commits sin practices lawlessness, sin is lawlessness. But I prefer what the Messianic translation called the Complete Jewish Bible says: “Everyone who keeps sinning is violating Torah — indeed, sin is violation of Torah.”
Because most Christians have been wrongly taught to view Torah as “the Mosaic Law” or the “Laws of Moses”—terms that are grossly in error as it was Yahweh, not Moses, who gave Torah to the world—the words law and/or lawlessness as used in most translations of 1 John 3:4, and many other places in Scripture, can be easily misunderstood.
Having properly defined the word “sin” as violation of Torah, I decided to do a little experiment. As it is perfectly within the realm of acceptability to replace a word in a sentence with its proper definition, for the sake of clarity, I have selected passages from throughout the Gospels and Apostolic Writings, what many refer to as the “New Testament” (another misleading term from Christianity, as The Bible is to be rendered as one complete Book, the whole Word of God) and replaced the word “sin”, or some form thereof (such as “sinner”), with our biblical definition of sin. I believe that this simple study will help Believers to better understand why it is important to apply Torah to new covenant belief and practice as well as to see the errors of modern Christian interpretation of The Bible and the new covenant.
If you are not familiar with the term Torah or are not totally sure what it means (most Christians actually are not informed in this, so don’t feel bad if that’s you), allow me to give you the basics. Torah refers most specifically to the 613 commandments listed throughout the five books of Moses (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy). Some today argue that the entire Bible can be considered “Torah” in that the term simply means instructions (in a biblical application, referring to God’s instructions to His people). Others argue that Torah can refer to the totality of all of God’s revelation to humanity (even meaning that if you believe God speaks something to your spirit, that too is Torah). Regardless, even these broader applications MUST be built on the initial Torah found in the books of Moses, the 613 mitzvot. If you want to learn more, I would recommend reading my lengthier articles: Torah: The Foundation Of All Truth, Living By Torah: Why It Matters, and Is Torah Bondage?.
Chapter breaks were added to our English text for our reference convenience; however, the breaks often interrupt our train-of-thought. Acts 3:26 flows across the #7 chapter ID to continue:
Acts 4:1 And as they spake unto the people, the priests, and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees [who have their own man-made laws as most religions of TODAY], came upon them [Peter and John],
Acts 4:2 Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached through Yeshua the resurrection from the dead.
Acts 4:3 And they laid hands on them [Peter and John, who apparently could not “pass through them”], and [those religious thugs] put them [Peter and John] in hold [jail] unto the next day: for it was now eventide.
The question has arisen, is Yeshua deity and should we worship HIM as we do HIS FATHER YeHoVaH. I listen to the arguments and have concluded that even though The FATHER is echad (H259 ONE), John 14:10 tells us:
John 14:9 Yeshua saith unto him [and to you and to me], Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known ME, Philip? he that hath seen ME hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in ME? the WORDs that I speak unto you I speak not of MYself: but the Father that dwelleth in ME, HE doeth the works.
John 14:11 Believe ME that I am in the Father, and the Father in ME: or else believe ME for the very works' sake [like passing through the religious thugs and walking on water :o))].
And, one final note about the deity of our Messiah/Mashiyach:
In Greek and English, we do not see our Messiah in Genesis 1:1; but, in the original Hebrew, we DO! Please compare:
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
בְּרֵאשִׁית בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ
Transliterated: Bereshit bara Elohim et hashamayim ve'et ha'aretz.
In English, Jesus said, “Revelation 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending” and Jesus is NOT found in our English book of Genesis :o/ In our English Genesis 1:1 we do not see “alpha and omega”; however, in Hebrew [the pure language Yeshua speaks according to Acts 26:14], Yeshua calls HIMself The Aleph and Tav [אֵת the first and last letters of the Hebrew aleph-bet by which the world was created and by which our book of Genesis was originally written!] and we see HIM, YESHUA, in Genesis 1:1 IN THE BEGINNING GOD אֵת [Aleph Tav = Yeshua] CREATED THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH!
In closing, I love quoting our “eternal” Sibling in Yeshua, William Tyndale, who (among so many martyrs who were executed by the Roman Catholic church) as Tyndale was passing The WORD of GOD on to you and to me, and he is quoted as saying:
“I defy the Pope and all his laws. If God spare my life, ere many years I will cause a boy who drives the plough to know more of the scriptures than he does.”
And I am that boy!
YeHoVaH IS adding HIS blessing to the reading of HIS entire Holy Bible. Amen.
Shema (Hear & Obey) YeHoVaH's instructions for Yeshua is coming soon. Read ALL YeHoVaH'S BOOK!
Torah (Genesis–Deuteronomy) [Christophe Nihan and Julia Rhyder trace the process by which the Pentateuch (the first five books of the Hebrew Bible) became defined as the Torah of Moses.]
Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) [Marc Zvi Brettler explores how Judaism transformed Yom Kippur from the day in which the temple was cleansed of its sins to a day of personal atonement.]
Feast of Booths (Sukkot) [Sukkot, the most important biblical fall festival, originally celebrated the end of the harvest season. Marc Zvi Brettler examines t]he rituals associated with this festival.
Can we, "weigh a pound of fire," "measure a bushel of wind," or "call back a day that has passed," of course we can: Daniel, shut up these words and seal the book until the time of the end. Many will roam to and fro and knowledge will increase
Wide Is The Gate 1 (3 of 5) The Emerging New Christianity: The Evolving New Age
In Volume One, Caryl Matrisciana covers these topics:
The Counterfeit Church
Christianized New-Age Spirituality
The Evolving Old New-Age to New-Age Christianized Mysticism
Volume 1 Guests include Caryl Matrisciana, Jason Carlson, Eric Douma, Brian Flynn, Michael Gendron, Tom McMahon, Johanna Michaelsen, Roger Oakland, Chris Quintana, Warren Smith, Ray Yungen, and other cameos. Video journalist, Caryl Matrisciana, author of Out of India, interviews friends, well-known authors, and experts in this bold and challenging DVD. Caryl examines the intrusion of the 60’s and 70’s New Age Movement, steeped in its pagan eastern mysticism, and traces its morphing over the last four decades—from its repackaging as the “self help” psychology and holistic health movements of the 80s, to its seeker friendly, megachurch appearance in the 90s, to its coming out in the 21st century as “the new spirituality.” Today’s new brand of Christianity has a different gospel and is targeting the younger generation with a so-called hip, cool, experiential spirituality, much of which is embracing the mysticism of Roman Catholicism with its ecumenical philosophy of uniting people from all faiths to work together to bring about a new world of peace and harmony. The dangerous result of this new spirituality in the church is the rise of today’s “Christianized” occultism. It is stretching its tentacles around the souls of unsuspecting youth, setting them up for the lie that subjective emotions of “power” and “experience” are “feelings” to be held higher than an objective walk in the Christian faith, based on truth found in the pure Word of God. Learn what Scripture teaches about the times we live in, the ways in which Christians are being seduced away from biblical truth, and the methods used by the New Spirituality to usher in the counterfeit kingdom of God on earth. Wide Is The Gate: The Emerging New Christianity DVD Volumes 1, 2 & 3 are available at:
It is often understood that Yom Kippur, also known as the Day of Atonement, is considered a day of fasting. But is this simply tradition or a commandment?

The Millennial Generation, comprised of young people born in the 1980s and 1990s, receives a great deal of press because it is changing the face of America. Studies have shown that this massive block of citizens—rivaling the size of the Baby Boom Generation—has transformed, not just public matters like employment, education, and popular culture, but also private things like dating, marriage, parenthood, and well, religious life.
A new study by the Pew Research Center finds that Millennials are now just as likely to say they have no religion or that they follow a non-Christian religion as they are to identify as Christian. Just under half of Millennials (49%) describe themselves as Christians, while 40% are religious “nones,” and another 9% identify with non-Christian faiths. The half of Millennials who say they are Christians is the lowest among all adult generations (compared to 84% of Silents; 76% of Boomers; and 67% of Generation Xers). Over the last ten years, Millennials have exhibited the sharpest decline in Christian identity, down 16%.
Many Christians hoped that the Millennials would follow the traditional path and return to their religious roots once they began to accomplish various adult milestones like marriage, home-ownership, parenthood, and career advancement. Other generations had followed that track, so why not the Millennials?
But the evidence is mounting that, instead, they are leaving religion for good. As Millennials have aged, they have shown little indication of returning to church or organized religion in any way. In fact, the evidence points in the other direction; recent surveys find that Millennials are becoming less Christian, not more.
Why? A national survey by the American Enterprise Institute proffers a few reasons why Millennials may not return to the religious fold:
Many Millennials never had strong ties to Christianity in the first place. As children, then, they were less likely to develop habits or associations that would draw them into returning to church as adults.
Millennials are increasingly likely to marry a nonreligious spouse, reinforcing secularism.
Changing perspectives on the relationship between morality and religion have convinced many Millennials that religion is either irrelevant or even unnecessary in passing moral beliefs to their children.
Boomer and Gen-X parents are partially to blame, as they started this trend by failing to raise their children within an organized religion. While only 5% of Baby Boomers grew up without religion, more than three times as many Millennials (17%) had no religious upbringing. Half of young Boomers attended weekly church services, but only a third of Millennials did.
Demons and evil spirits in scripture: Dr. Michael Heiser 2019
Dr. Michael Heiser is back to discuss demons and the evil spirits found in scripture. The storyline of the Bible presents a populated spiritual world, full of creatures who are in rebellion against their Creator, just like humans. For lots of fascinating reasons, our modern conceptions of these spiritual rebels are based on serious misunderstandings of the Bible. So let’s go back to the book of Genesis and start over as we learn about the powers of spiritual evil in the story of the Bible.
We will discuss what the scriptures say about Satan and demons, we will talk about the governmental structure of these rulers of darkness, and hopefully, we will have time to discuss demon possession and the spiritual warfare Christians are commanded to participate in.

Censorship: the Anti-Bible Revolution in America
August 31, 2020
August 30, 2020
(OPINION) ETH – Another poll has been released this week that proves that the “Falling Away” of the Church is moving at breakneck speed! According to the Christian Post, More than half of American adults, including 30% of evangelicals, are now saying that Jesus isn’t God but most agree that he was a great teacher.
This was gathered from the recent results of the 2020 State of Theology survey. This belief comes despite the Bible and traditional teachings of the Christian Church revealing that Jesus truly existed as both man and God. The report stated that among the key findings of the biennial State of Theology survey that a shocking 52% of American adults believe that Jesus was a great teacher and nothing more.
What is this revealing about what is being preached and taught from behind pulpits across American Churches? What is this being said of those who even read the Bible? The survey went on to reveal that nearly a third of evangelicals also support this same view, a preliminary release on the findings of the study said Thursday.
Yes, read that again! “A THIRD of evangelicals believe that Jesus was merely a “good teacher” and nothing more. The complete report on the survey, conducted from March 10th to 18th among 3,002 U.S. adults including 630 professing evangelicals, is expected to be released on Sept. 8th. “Statistics like these from the State of Theology survey can give us quite a shock, but they also shed light on the concerns that many American Christians and churches have expressed for decades.
As the culture around us increasingly abandons its moral compass, professing evangelicals are sadly drifting away from God’s absolute standard in Scripture,” Stephen Nichols, the chief academic officer of Ligonier Ministries and president of Reformation Bible College, said in a statement. “It’s clear that the church does not have the luxury of idly standing by.
This is a time for Christians to study Scripture diligently, engage confidently with people in our culture, and witness fearlessly to the identity and saving work of Jesus Christ in the Gospel.” The study revealed that 65% of evangelicals surveyed were also found to agree with the statement, “Jesus is the first and greatest being created by God,” which theology experts say suggest a dire need for Christians to be taught Christology — the doctrine of the person and work of Jesus Christ.
It is a political, religious, social and even technological mishmash which cannot possibly fuse together. We have become, one or the other and never the twain shall meet in our complicated world: As Daniel prophesied our society is "Feet of mingled iron and clay."
Ezekiel 38: In the great battle of Gog and Magog Great Britain and the United States Of America, Tarshish and its "young lions," can only look on and muster only a polite, meek diplomatic protest rather than a threat of retaliation as the mass army of the North invade Israel
Prophetic Dream: We Are Out of Time – Prepare For Impact! Map of US covered in a Wave of Darkness Sweeping the Nation from Right to Left!
August 31, 2020
Monique Bizet just sent me a dream that she had back in May, and I would very much encourage you to read it.
So many prophetic voices have been given the word “prepare” in recent months, and I believe that time to prepare as we normally would is rapidly running out.
All of our lives are about to change in a major way, and I think that this dream is quite timely…
May 17, 2020
The Lord has been given me very strong prophetic dreams lately showing that we are out of time!
My dreams show that very strong things are coming to the Nation of America and the Lord is warning us to be ready and prepare for Impact!
In this 18:12 minute video I share what the Lord showed me in this dream.
We Are Out of Time - Prepare For Impact! Wave of Darkness Sweeping the Nation
Here is what the Lord showed me…
The dream begun with a man that I knew represented the devil. The man was visiting from house to house and had a big cunning smile on his face as he left each home and looked back with an evil grin. There was something very secretive and covert that this evil man was doing, it was some sort of a cover-up that affected the homes and families. Also a woman was talking to the man very secretive and involved in some way. I felt upset at the evil man and I tried to find out what the man was doing but she wouldn’t tell me.
At the same time in the scene, this woman comes up to me and she starts to talk to me.
She takes me thru a dark woods path towards the back of each home; I see that outside is very dark. As we stand outside a home, I hear an old man with long white hair inside talking and saying something. As we walk towards each home, I see golden grandfather clocks outside of each house.
The grandfather clocks got my attention and as she’s talking to me I’m really focusing in on these grandfather clocks. As I’m looking at the bob and pendulum of the grandfather clocks, this lady starts to say “God looks at the clock, God knows what time each one has, God knows what each one says, and God knows the time, only God knows the time”. Usually in dream symbolism grandfather clocks represents unbelievers and people that are lost, but I believe there is a deeper meaning here; like a play on words, because God is focusing my eyes like cameras so much on the clocks, signifying that we are out of time and what the lady said.
I did some research on grandfather clocks, and one of the keys of these clocks is the timing of a grandfather clock is very precise. I remember seeing the gears of of the clock itself and when it hits the hour, the alarm goes off with exactitude. I believe the Lord is warning us and showing us that the alarm is going off right now, for us to wake up and be ready.
I believe that rude awakenings are coming, that judgments from God are at the door and that the enemy is covertly planning major events to unleash on this nation that will affect every home and our lives drastically. It’s a time for us to intercede for this nation in prayer and arise as the warriors of Christ in this battle.
There is a time keeping piece on the clock called the pendulum, and this is where my eyes were fixated on. There are gears on the clock gear train called “the movement” I thought that was interesting as we’re seeing movements taking place in our nation spiraling cities into chaos.

(OPINION) ETH – Indiana-based preacher and online prophecy teacher Paul Begley recently told his followers in an online video to brace for apocalyptic signs in the heavens and the Earth as he reportedly linked biblical prophecy to the supposed passage of Planet X or Nibiru.
According to Express, Nibiru is an online doomsday hoax born in the 1990s that resurfaces every few years. Believers of the Nibiru conspiracy are convinced an apocalyptic planet 10 times bigger than Earth passes our planet every 3,600 years or so and when it occurs again in the near future the gravitational pressure of this alleged Planet X is going to wreak havoc and destruction upon our planet.
Despite these claims, no solid evidence of the existence of this Nibiru or Planet X exists and these conspiracy claims are deemed as elaborate hoaxes. A scientist for NASA named David Morrison recently stated: “There is no such planet. There never has been, and presumably, there never will be, but it keeps popping up over and over.”
Despite this, Begley is one of many ministers online who believe Nibiru is real and will soon reveal itself to the world. In one of Bagley’s latest videos on Youtube, he stated”Anytime you have a Sun event, you have an Earth event. “Anytime there’s a space event, it affects the Earth or even the Sun. “And right now we’ve been dealing with the coming Planet X, Nibiru, planet number nine, Wormwood, the dwarf star, the Goblin.
“Call it what you want to, a binary system that according to Mike from Around the World, of course, has been approaching us for the last seven years, getting closer and closer into sight. “It’s going to be soon that people are going to be completely freaked out with the events that are going to be hitting the Earth. “Now, one thing’s for sure.
The Bible says there will be great signs and fearful sights in the heavens, okay?” He then read from the Book of Genesis and stated that some of these apocalyptic signs are already happening. NASA has firmly stated “The planet in question, Nibiru, doesn’t exist.
“Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an internet hoax. “There is no factual basis for these claims. “If Nibiru or Planet X were real and headed for an encounter with the Earth astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye.”

So many people have been shown the great earthquake that is eventually going to rip North America in half along the New Madrid fault.
A few days ago, a wonderful woman named Donna Hazlett sent me a vision that God gave to her last year. In this vision, she was shown a highway that will instantly be submerged by water once this massive earthquake hits.
The good news is that this event will not happen immediately because so many others have been shown that it only happens after the U.S. government is involved in formally dividing the land of Israel.
But the bad news is that this event is coming someday, and what Donna was shown is perfectly consistent with what countless others have been shown…
Hi Michael, Last year, I had a vision during the day. I was wide awake and all of a sudden I was transported and was standing next to a man and I had peace with him. I don’t know who it was or if he was an angel. But I had perfect peace with him and knew I was safe. I felt calm standing next to him. Where we were standing, in front of us there was black asphalt like a small parking lot, but there weren’t any painted markings where cars would park, but it was an area of black asphalt and beyond that there were trees and hills. It was daytime. We stood and looked ahead. Then it was as if the earth began to wobble on it’s axis. Those were the exact words that came to my mind as it happened. In your book, someone described it as the ground rolling up and down. That’s how it looked. But underneath my feet, it felt as though the earth was wobbling on it’s axis. Then he showed me a highway with cars driving on it. It was still daylight and the highway was dry. One moment the cars were driving along like normal and the next moment they were completely engulfed underwater. It was all under water. The highway was suddenly under water. The cars were turning over underneath the water. I didn’t know for sure where this was at the time so I emailed a Pastor in Florida, because of the highways going under the water. I ordered your book and it arrived yesterday, August 24th. As I was reading the prophecies last night, I realized that it was my area that was being shown to me. I am minutes from the Mississippi River and the bridge to St. Louis. Our country was split in two and that’s why the water gushed over the cars and highway, the highway sank under the water. It was St. Louis sinking. Like it was swallowed up in the water. Our country was split in half and divided by the water.
Michael, I don’t know if this had anything to do with it, but it was shortly after that vision there were three separate times where Jesus was face-to-face with me and told me to stand. It happened three different times after that vision. I told that same Pastor about it in an email. I don’t know if it’s connected though. I’m going to finish reading your book and if there’s anything else I remember or the Lord speaks to me I will send it to you in an email. Thank you.
I can still see it all, even as I looked down at the ground, before the earth started to wobble, I can remember the little pebbles around our feet. Little rocks on the edge of the asphalt where we stood.
As soon as I hit send on that last email I felt convicted by the Lord about when I asked if you thought we would be raptured first. I know today has enough trouble of its own and we’re not supposed to worry. Like Jesus said, “Take no thought for tomorrow…” Matthew 6:34. I know God will never leave us or forsake us. I have peace about it.
