Part 1

The Measuring rod

1 A Reed, as a measuring rod was then given to me, shaped like a staff,

and I was told: “Rise up and measure the sanctuary of God and the altar of incense,

and number those who worship there.”

(Rev 11:1 Ampl)

YHWH has said He is laying a tested and precious corner stone in Zion. YHWH is a righteous judge who knows the hearts of all men as is written: 12 For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power, making it active, operative, energizing, and effective; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life or soul and the immortal spirit, and of joints and marrow, of the deepest parts of our nature, exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart. 13 And not a creature exists that is concealed from His sight, but all things are open and exposed, naked and defenceless to the eyes of Him with Whom we have to do. (Heb 4:12-13 Ampl)

When Yahshua comes, He will judge all men with righteousness and justice. No one will be able to reason or convince God that He has been unfair and unjust in His decision. Our hearts will be exposed to ourselves and to those around us, for in heaven nothing is hidden.

During a retreat in 2008, I was taken into heaven and saw many things. I also suddenly understood many things just as Yahshua said: 11 I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, We speak only of what we know, we know absolutely what we are talking about; we have actually seen what we are testifying to, we were eyewitnesses of it. And still you do not receive our testimony, you reject and refuse our evidence--that of Myself and of all those who are born of the Spirit. 12 If I have told you of things that happen right here on the earth and yet none of you believes Me, how can you believe, trust Me, adhere to Me, rely on Me, if I tell you of heavenly things? 13 And yet no one has ever gone up to heaven, but there is One Who has come down from heaven--the Son of Man Himself, Who is, dwells, has His home in heaven. (John 3:11-13 Ampl) YHWH opened my eyes and now even I can say: “I have seen and know what I am talking about for I was taken into the heavens and I know it is true.”

We interpret and reason about the interpretation of the word of God, until YHWH sends a prophet who knows and understands what is written, for in the mercy of Yahshua, he was shown me those things which happen in heaven.

The Scripture says: “Let every man be a liar!” And: “No one is righteous not even one.” Many speak of what they have learnt from others or have studied in the scriptures for themselves, yet came to a human interpretation. It is only Yahshua – Yahshua the Messiah – who can open the scriptures so that the hearts of men will burn and know it is truth!

Many have interpreted the scriptures to their own destruction, deceiving and being deceived. Many have twisted the scriptures to suit their needs and desires and many who have agreed those false teachers have run after them, drawing great crowds after themselves, as Paul said: 26 Therefore I testify and protest to you on this our parting day that I am clean and innocent and not responsible for the blood of any of you. 27 For I never shrank or kept back or fell short from declaring to you the whole purpose and plan and counsel of God. 28 Take care and be on guard for yourselves and the whole flock over which the Holy Spirit has appointed you bishops and guardians, to shepherd, tend and feed and guide the church of the Lord or of God, which He obtained for Himself, buying it and saving it for Himself with His own blood. 29 I know that after I am gone, ferocious wolves will get in among you, not sparing the flock; 30 Even from among your own selves men will come to the front who, by saying perverse, distorted and corrupt things, will endeavour to draw away the disciples after them, to their own party. 31 Therefore be always alert and on your guard, being mindful that for three years I never stopped night or day seriously to admonish and advise and exhort you one by one with tears. (Act 20:26-31 Ampl)

By that which we approve, our hearts are revealed; what we are willing to believe and accept as doctrine shows the way we think about our God. Yahshua once said to those who thought they knew YHWH, the God of Abraham, Isaac, Moses and Elijah: "You know neither me nor my Father; if you knew me, you would know my Father too."

Many claim to know the Father, but have accepted doctrines, which is not the Father’s heart and is an abomination in His eyes. Some of what men have accepted as truth is scripture which has been pulled out of proportion and twisted to suit their own heart’s desires and wickedness. Much of what we have believed shows our lack of understanding and knowing the heart of the Father and therefore we do not know His Son, whom He has sent to save us from such lies.

The hearts of men are exposed by the way they respond to those who do not believe or approve what they approve. Even Yahshua prophesied saying: 9 Then they will hand you over to suffer affliction and tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake. 10 And then many will be offended and repelled and will begin to distrust and desert Him Whom they ought to trust and obey and will stumble and fall away and betray one another and pursue one another with hatred. 11 And many false prophets will rise up, deceive, and lead many into error. (Matt 24:9-11 Ampl) Many people subtly opposing those who do not believe as they do. Brothers and sisters who disagree start to separate from one another.

The first question people always ask is: “which church are you in?”

Yahshua also prophesied, saying: 1 I have told you all these things, so that you should not be offended, taken unawares and falter, or be caused to stumble and fall away. I told you to keep you from being scandalized and repelled. 2 They will put you out of, expel you from the synagogues; but an hour is coming when whoever kills you will think and claim that he has offered service to God. 3 And they will do this because they have not known the Father or Me. (John 16:1-3 Ampl) Many will now in their zeal oppose God and those whom God will send to them and even persecute one another. Then I have this one question, just like Paul asked: “4 Who are you to pass judgment on and censure another's household servant? It is before his own master that he stands or falls. And he shall stand and be upheld, for the Master, the Lord, is mighty to support him and make him stand. (Rom 14:4 Ampl) Will we now judge our brother for whom Christ died just because he does not see the way I see?

We must start to test our doctrines and ourselves for they reveal our hearts. How do we test ourselves? God sends us prophets to measure us, as was prophesied would happen: 1 A reed, as a measuring rod was then given to me, shaped like a staff, and I was told: “Rise up and measure the sanctuary of God and the altar of incense, and number those who worship there. 2 But leave out of your measuring the court outside the sanctuary of God; omit that, for it is given over to the Gentiles, the nations, and they will trample the holy city underfoot for 42 months, three and one-half years. (Rev 11:1-2 Ampl) Yahshua, the Christ - Yahshua our Messiah, will now measure those who worship in the temple or the House of God. Therefore, the scripture says the judgment begins with the house of God.

YHWH said through the prophet Hosea: “O Ephraim, what shall I do with you?” says the Lord. “O’ Judah, what shall I do with you? For your wavering love and kindness are like the night mist or like the dew that goes early away.” “5 Therefore have I hewn down and smitten them by means of the prophets; I have slain them by the words of My mouth; My judgments, pronounced upon them by you prophets, are like the light that goes forth. 6 For I desire and delight in dutiful steadfast love and goodness, not sacrifice, and the knowledge of and acquaintance with God more than burnt offerings. 7 But they, like less-privileged men and like Adam, have transgressed the covenant; there have they dealt faithlessly and treacherously with Me. (Hos 6:4-7 Ampl) God is about to allow His battle axe to cut off or hew down those false teachings coming from false motives and idolatry. YHWH also said by the prophet Hosea: “I have also spoken to you by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions for you and have appealed to you through parables acted out by the prophets.” (Hos 12:10 Ampl) God has spoken to us through signs in the heavens so that all men may know it was not done by men so that. you the reader, may believe.

The Lord said by the mouth of the prophet Hosea: “And by a prophet the Lord brought Israel out of Egypt, and by a prophet was Israel preserved.” (Hos 12:13 Ampl) If this was the way He had done it in the past, would not God do the same in these last days? Has God changed?

We have all waited for the great falling away prophesied by the apostle as was written: 3 Let no one deceive or beguile you in any way, for that day will not come except the apostasy comes first, unless the predicted great falling away of those who have professed to be Christians has come, and the man of lawlessness or sin is revealed, who is the son of doom or perdition (2 Thess 2:3 Ampl) That falling away has already taken place and we do not even know it. We are that wicked and adulterous generation to whom this prophecy was given. Yes, the leaven has been thoroughly worked into the batch of dough. It has leavened all the believers and all the churches.

We have believed and done what Yahshua has never commanded us to do! Nor would we have believed or done such things, if we had known Him or His Father. Many who claim to know Him only know Him in knowledge and not in heart, for even the word of the prophet Isaiah is fulfilled in them: “Forasmuch as this people draw near Me with their mouth and honour Me with their lips, but remove their hearts and minds far from Me, and their fear and reverence for Me are a commandment of men that is learned by repetition, without any thought as to the meaning, 14 Therefore, behold! I will again do marvellous things with this people, marvellous and astonishing things; and the wisdom of their wise men will perish, and the understanding of their discerning men will vanish or be hidden.” (Isa 29:13-14 Ampl) Yahshua is going to shame both Jew and Gentile alike, for they do not know Him. He will shame them by choosing the foolish things of this world to shame the wise, revealing hidden secrets to little children. They are only children in our eyes, but in God’s sight they are mature, set apart and chosen to prepare God’s people for His coming.

Therefore, prepare your hearts that you will not be offended when your doctrine is hewn down. Test your doctrine for soon you will be hewn by the measuring stick of Yahshua. For look the axe is at the root of the tree and every tree that does not bear good fruit, will be cut down.

Messengers sent from God:

1 BEHOLD, I send My messenger, and he shall prepare the way before Me. And the Lord, the Messiah, Whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; the Messenger or Angel of the covenant, Whom you desire, behold, He shall come, says the Lord of hosts. 2 But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner's fire and like fullers' soap; 3 He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and He will purify the priests, the sons of Levi, and refine them like gold and silver, that they may offer to the Lord offerings in righteousness. (Mal 3:1-3 Ampl)

Our offerings to God have been defiled. We have brought our tithes to God in the hope that He may bless us and open the heavens and pour down so much blessing that we could not contain it, so that we may spend our blessings on our pleasure, but we have neglected those whom God has really called. We have given all our money to the store house of God, but those whom God sent were rejected by the store house, which we claim belong to God. Let it be a shame to all, for since God has called us as prophets to sent out a prophetic newsletter to over 3000 people, we have not received any blessing from your hand. I do however praise God for those few who have blessed us in any way they could. How will this message reach the ends of the earth if our hearts and hands are closed to those whom God sends to us to warn us?

We have sent out letters to pastors and churches to warn them to prepare their people. We have sent out this awesome witness, which God had granted in His mercy, but had no response. We have even sent letters to Angus Buchan and other men of God, but also had no response yet. Our words have been falling on deaf ears. We even went to some leaders and shared with them what God has foretold through all the prophets and has now also confirmed through us, but everywhere we get the same response: “We are not interested. May God bless your ministry, but leave me out of it!”

Many are not interested in what God really has to say. They think in the same way the apostle Peter prophesied it would be: Where is the promise of His coming? For since the forefathers fell asleep, all things have continued exactly as they did from the beginning of creation.” (2 Pet 3:4 Ampl) Many leaders of churches do not want anybody to teach their members about the end times, because of fear. “It is has been a very controversial topic and only confuse the people” they say. But what if God had sent them prophets to clear up the confusion so that the body of Christ could be unified and prepared for His coming? They would rather believe those prophets who prophecy peace and prosperity to them.

The message Yahshua – Yahshua the Messiah has given to us is not convenient and sounds like nonsense to many. For how could God speak to men, using the clouds? Someone even wrote to me and said: “You know you are making all this up!” Have we forgotten how YHWH led His people in the desert by a column or cloud in the day time? Did not the prophets, long ago, prophesy about these things, when they wrote: 4 Sing to God, sing praises to his name; extol him who rides on the clouds by his name, YAH; and be glad in his presence? And 7 God, when you went out at the head of your people, when you marched out through the wilderness, (Selah) 8 the earth quaked, and rain poured from the sky, at the presence of God. Even Sinai shook at the presence of God, the God of Isra'el. (Psa 68:4-7&8) CJB

Yahshua once said:My teaching is not My own, but His Who sent Me. 17 If any man desires to do His will - God's pleasure - he will know, have the needed illumination to recognize and can tell for himself whether the teaching is from God or whether I am speaking from Myself and of My own accord and on My own authority.” (John 7:16-17 Ampl) If any man or pastor or prophet would take the time to look at the way God had appeared to us, through signs in the heavens they would have realized this is the greatest miracle God had given, in His mercy, to this generation to warn and prepare His people, before He comes. It is absolute mercy from God to sent us prophets before the time to warn us of His impending judgment on the unbelieving and the wicked. He could have allowed all of us to fall asleep and come upon us as a thief in the night, cutting us in pieces, but He did not.

The whole world is fast asleep. Have you not read what Yahshua said about the 10 virgins: “5 While the bridegroom lingered and was slow in coming, they all began nodding their heads, and they fell asleep. (Matt 25:5 Ampl) All 10 virgins had fallen asleep before midnight.

A wicked and unbelieving Generation

This generation has become just like the generation in the time of Yahshua! The people refused to make up their minds and to accept that Yahshua is the Messiah. In the same way many have been cautiously sceptical and unwilling to recognize that God had appeared to us through signs in the heavens. They say like they said at that time: “How is it that this man has learning, is so versed in the sacred Scriptures and in theology when He has never studied?” Even our personal friends have not rejected us openly, but have just remained quiet, saying to themselves: “We will see what will be the outcome of this!”

I used to be part of a very large congregation in Pretoria - South Africa. In my zeal for God I had hoped that the leaders of that congregation would listen. Even a well known prophetess said to me: “The world is not ready for your teaching!” All though through this same prophetess’s mouth, the Lord prophesied and confirmed His calling, when she prophesied to me in 2008, saying: “2 And He has made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of His hand has He hid me and made me a polished arrow; in His quiver has He kept me close and concealed me.” (Isa 49:2 Ampl) Just because God has hidden us until now, does that mean we are any less than any other man’s ministry? Has not God polished us Himself to be an arrow in His quiver?

Many who are my acquaintances have helped other men and women to witness what YHWH had done for them, but have not opened their hearts to us. Just like the people in Yahshua’ time they knew that He was no ordinary man with no ordinary calling, yet they refused to go and learn from Him, as was written: 57 And they took offense at Him, they were repelled and hindered from acknowledging His authority, and caused to stumble.” But true is the saying of Yahshua: “A prophet is not without honour except in his own country and in his own house.” (Matt 13:57 Ampl)

The message of God were welcomed among the ordinary people in the small city of Tzaneen and surrounding area, although I was called in and questioned by the leadership of one of the larger churches in that city, because of false testimony against me and fear of deceiving their church members. At first I sensed the anger of the pastor who questioned me, but later when he saw that I came in humility and did not threaten of oppose him, his attitude changed and his anger subsided. He could say nothing against the message, which I had received from heaven, through awesome signs in the heavens. Yet I was not questioned regards my teaching, but was rather called in because of lying suspicions and bad report from my own home town.

Most who question us want to know: “Who released you?” and “Under who’s authority are you saying these things?” It is just like the time when Yahshua questioned the Pharisees about John’s baptism, saying: “30 Was the baptism of John from heaven or from men?” (Mark 11:30 Ampl) The Pharisees would not say that is was from heaven, then they would have had to accept John’s teaching and had to do what he had said. They also did not want to say it was not from heaven, because they wanted to please the people. So they said: “We don’t know!” The unwillingness of many, especially in leadership, to acknowledge that God has sent us has made it very convenient to ignore our cry! But even the leaders do not know how to treat us, especially because God did speak to us not though a vision or in a dream, but through signs made with clouds in the sky. Yet they refuse to humble themselves and ask what did God show you? Not one of those who are in a religious position has said: “We are willing to sit down and listen to you.” Many are unwilling to let go of their agendas and will not make room or time to listen to an ordinary man sent by God. Thus the hearts of men are exposed. The hidden agendas and subtle self appointed positions of authority have blinded them and they have forgotten that they once before also were nothing in the eyes of men.

If God did not reveal these things to us, where then did we get this insight? The worst consequence awaits those who blind themselves, deafen their ears and harden their hearts. They are not rejecting men, but God Himself.

When God does not come to us the shape and form and through the person whom we expected we are full of excuses why God did not speak. This was the same way they treated Yahshua, saying: “Can it be possible that the rulers have discovered and know that this is truly the Christ?” Most people will not make up their minds and listen to us, because their church or leadership has not accepted our teachings and revelations, which came from God. For so long, we have longed for prophets to come and help guide the church, but when God does has sent them to us we refuse them in our actions.

Whether any man does not believe that which God had shown us makes no difference to me. Our teaching is not some cleverly invented story, but a true and living witness that Yahshua is coming. And more than that God is confirming it through ordinary men. God will surely humble those who are proud in their own estimation of themselves. God will speak through ordinary men and women who will listen and obey Him.

Do not merely reject this message without paying thorough attention to that which God has revealed through signs in the heavens to us. Should not this very fact that God has spoken to us through signs in the heaven be a clear indication that the end is here? For the prophets said: 19 And I will show wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth beneath, blood and fire and smoking vapour; 20 The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the obvious day of the Lord comes--that great and notable and conspicuous and renowned day. (Acts 2:19-20 Ampl) God will do even more than this, to the shame of those who think they are something.

If you do not believe us then, as Yahshua said: 37 If I am not doing the works or performing the deeds of My Father, then do not believe Me, do not adhere to Me and trust Me and rely on Me. 38 But if I do them, even though you do not believe Me or have faith in Me, at least believe the works and have faith in what I do. (John 10:37-38a Ampl) If you do not believe that God has spoken to us then at least believe in the signs of warning and prophetic understanding which YHWH had given us to make us ready for the coming of Yahshua.

May the Spirit of Yahshua our Messiah open your eyes so that you may be ready on that Great day when Yahshua the Anointed One is revealed in heaven.

From His servant, called and set apart for this purpose before the world begun.
