Sifted and Setting Apart ~ pt 2

Listen to Audio Here

Today, 15th September 2020, the Abraham Accord is being signed in USA between UAE and Israel. Before I post part 2 of Sifted and Separated, I wish to share some very important information I received by email this morning which gives understanding of the times. Remember that on the 7th August, the Lord said to me, “In 40 days, tribulation begins’… well, that 40 day window ends TODAY, (IF YOU COUNT THE 7TH AUG AS DAY 1). Hear What the Spirit is saying to the churches. Brace yourself for what is coming. Be watchful and alert. It is not coming. IT IS HERE!!!

Many thanks to Lauren for emailing it to me:


This abominable coin is selling for $150.00 with a misinterpretation from the Prophet Jeremiah 14:13 written in Hebrew makes him the prophet who will give the lasting peace, when God says He will consume the ‘false prophets” who say peace!

 The complete article and coin photos;

On September 15, 2020, President Donald J. Trump will host the signing of the “Abraham Accord,” a groundbreaking Middle East peace treaty effectively normalizing relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.

Say what?  President Trump is hosting the signing of the “Abomination of Desolation” a groundbreaking “Covenant and Agreement” that fulfills Isaiah 28:18-19 wherein God “disannuls it with a 2 day storm that causes desolation upon the architect and the signatory, destroying them and desolating their countries who are vicariously linked to the “Accord”!

Here’s a quote from one of today’s typical Evangelical Pastor, who are praising the abomination, he said, “The Abraham Accord will prove to be the “moment” when the grievances of the past no longer overpowered the promises of the future in the Middle East.”  -Pastor Johnnie Moore

It sure will bring the “moment”! There are 2 things that will come upon the President and our nation “in a moment, in one day, the loss of children and widowhood…Isaiah 47:9 “Evil will rise up, he cannot put off and desolation shall come suddenly which he shall not know” Isaiah 47:11

The whole chapter is about the destruction of “virgin daughter of Babylon” living in the USA symbolically represented as the statue ‘Freedom’ on top of our Capitol dome now “sitting on the ground” for destroying His everlasting heritage covenant with Abraham. Genesis 17:8-10   


The commemorative coin, features a quote from the Prophet Jeremiah – “For I will give you lasting peace in this place” – that encapsulates the central teachings of the faiths of Abraham; Judaism, Christianity and Islam, that one has a moral duty to seek out and embrace peace.

The actual text: Jeremiah 14:13 Then I said, “Ah, Lord God! Behold, the prophets say, ‘You shall not see the sword, nor shall you have famine, but I will give you assured peace in this place.’ ”

 Paraphrasing; In Jeremiah 14:11-12 The Lord told Jeremiah not pray for this people and that when they fasted, He would not hear their cry or accept their burnt and grain offerings, but would consume them with the sword, famine, and pestilence.

 The “coin verse” Jeremiah responded in vs.13, saying, “Lord God” the prophets are telling the people they will have peace and not see the sword or have famine.

In Jeremiah 14:14-15 The Lord said to Jeremiah, “The prophets who prophesy lies in My name. I have not sent, commanded nor spoken to; they prophesy to you a false vision, divination, a worthless thing, and the deceit of their heart. The Lord said, concerning the prophets who say, ‘Sword and famine shall not be in this land’‘By sword and famine those prophets shall be consumed! 

The Abraham Accord coin is adorned on the front with the Israeli and UAE flags, flying over an intricate silhouette of the holy city of Jerusalem, Israel’s eternal capital, and Abu Dhabi skylines, which merge together in symbolic unity.

Immediately below the skyline are the words “Abraham Accord” inscribed in Arabic, Hebrew, and English. Abraham was the father of monotheism, and no person better symbolizes the potential for unity among all these three great faiths while the Seal of the President of the United States, an eagle holding an olive branch and arrows, completes the front design, with his signature ‘Donald John Trump’ rounding off the rear design. 

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “Peace is a good thing and peace unites moderates, two of the most advanced economies in the world – Israel and the United Arab Emirates… We’re fighting Iran and the radicals who are trying to overthrow our order in the Middle East, subjugate people and propagate terrorism.

So, this is good for peace, good for security, and good for prosperity. I think it’s good for the United States and good for Israel.

“When they shall say peace and safety; THEN sudden destruction shall come upon them as pain upon a woman in travail and they shall NOT escape” 1 Thessalonians 5:3

Please study the coins:


Sifted and Separated ~ Pt 2

We all see in part and we all hold pieces of the puzzle. I would like to thank Sabine for bringing to my attention the facts surrounding the offering of the firstfruits of the oil in ancient Israel. We are all familiar with the firstfruits offering of barley at Passover, wheat at Pentecost. The firstfruits of the wine was offered 50 days after the grain firstfruits and the oil firstfruits another 50 days after that. The Essenes record that the oil firstfruits festival was on 22nd Elul every year and the wood offering was for 6 days following that, from the 23rd to 28th Elul.

These firstfruits were brought to the temple for use in the prescribed worship practices of the temple. Because of the timing of the firstfruits oil festival shortly before Rosh Hashanah, I am convinced that it refers to pure olive oil for use in the continual burning of the 7 menorah lamps.

Lev 24:2  Command the Israelites that they bring to you pure oil from beaten olives for the light [of the golden lampstand] to cause a lamp to burn continually.

Pure oil is fresh oil, virgin oil of the first pressing. On 22nd Elul, 3 days before 25th Elul which is the anniversary of the day God said ‘Let there be light”, a vast amount of oil was brought to the temple in an act of worship and firstfruits offering. This is an amazing prophetic picture to me. In Genesis, God knows He is about to deal with the darkness on the face of the deep and it has to be done by release of a significant amount of a substance totally opposite in quality, in other words, LIGHT. The Hebrew for ‘let there be’ is hayar and one of the things it means is ‘appear’. So He announces the appearing of light, not natural light which we get from the sun, created on day 4, but spiritual light. It comes forth from Himself Who is Light. He releases a portion of the essence of Who He is into the earth.

In the same way, before the celebration of the Fall Feasts, the coming of the King and the wedding, there is required the appearing of vessels full of fresh oil to be presented at the temple as a firstfruits offering. It was accepted by the priests on duty and stored in an inner storehouse specially designated for the pure oil; the holy oil, set apart for producing light in the Holy Place.

On 22nd Elul as I prepared to spend time with the Lord, He said to me, “Present yourself as fresh oil”. So I lifted my hands and offered myself as fresh oil firstfruits offering. Now as I look back, I realize He was asking me to do a prophetic action as one of those vessels of pure fresh oil being brought to the temple for use in the year which was about to unfold. It is almost a ‘here am I, send me’ moment but for a specific use in a certain appointed part of the temple. These vessels of fresh pure oil carry the essence of Him Who is the Light of the World. They manifest Him. Jesus is poured out of them by their gestures and by their words. And their purpose is to dispel the darkness.

The Fall Festivals and Chanukah (which is like a second Tabernacles) require a large amount of oil to be available, especially as during Chanukah, there were four giant lamps lit in the women’s courtyard of the temple and the whole of Jerusalem was lit by their light. It is a feast filled with great joy and dancing because the celebration of the cleansed and rededicated temple is being remembered – not to mention the miraculous occurrence with the one measure of oil lasting for 8 days, while new oil was pressed. Another name for Chanukah is Feast of Dedication or Festival of Lights and it is the time at which Jesus, the light of the world was conceived. Later, Jesus participated in the Feast of Dedication according to John 10:22.

I asked the Lord why there was the oil festival (or Pentecost of oil) was celebrated first before the wood offering was carried out. He first highlighted the fact that the former was a celebration that was marked as a festival, but the second was just an offering without any celebration. The He pointed out that the oil was for use in the Holy Place but the wood was designated for use in the outer court during the burnt offerings on the brazen altar. First, pure remnant vessels full of oil would be presented and brought into the place of holy use i.e. they would be sealed and set-apart, not for common household use – and most importantly, they were not to be defiled. Then, once this receiving and setting apart had been accomplished with great joy and festivity in heavenly places, then the wood would be cut and provided for the brazen altar, delegated to the outer court and its workings.

Trees in the Bible always represent people (see psalm 1). The Lord indicated to me that in these days,the wood offering would be sourced from the trees who had suffered the axe to their root because no fruit of repentance had been seen in their lives. This included both individual lives and ministries, where the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Elijah had been calling for repentance and the call had been brushed off or flatly ignored. We see this principle of time being given for fruit of repentance to be borne in a parable Jesus told in Luke:

Luk 13:6  And He told them this parable: A certain man had a fig tree, planted in his vineyard, and he came looking for fruit on it, but did not find [any]. Luk 13:7  So he said to the vinedresser, See here! For these three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree and I find none. Cut it down! Why should it continue also to use up the ground [to deplete the soil, intercept the sun, and take up room]? Luk 13:8  But he replied to him, Leave it alone, sir, [just] this one more year, till I dig around it and put manure [on the soil]. Luk 13:9  Then perhaps it will bear fruit after this; but if not, you can cut it down and out.

The vessels brimful of freshly pressed oil, representing fruit of repentance produced after the pressing and chastising of the Holy Spirit during Elul are appointed holy service. The trees receiving the axe to the root are the unrepentant sinners among God’s people who are appointed the everlasting burnings (the brazen altar fire never went out). Yes, they are still of use in the outer court, but the judgement of fire is their portion.

Then He took me back to Samuel and the removal of Hophni and Phineas from the priesthood. Samuel represents the firstfruit offering of Hannah’s womb, set apart for holy use and brought to abide in the temple, his life poured out in ministering to the Lord. Hophni and Phineas are those in whom the axe is laid to the root of the tree. Sifting and separation is evident between the sons of oil and the fruitless trees whose end is to be burned. They are also described in Hebrews 6:4-8.

The parable Jesus told about the trees is based on God’s instruction in Leviticus:

Lev 19:23  And when you come into the land and have planted all kinds of trees for food, then you shall count the fruit of them as inedible and forbidden to you for three years; it shall not be eaten. Lev 19:24  In the fourth year all their fruit shall be holy for giving praise to the Lord. Lev 19:25  But in the fifth year you may eat of the fruit [of the trees], that their produce may enrich you; I am the Lord your God.

Let’s examine this by looking at the years mentioned as watches of the night. Remember that the Lord said to me that 5781 is the morning watch year and the year of preparation. This is the fourth watch of the night. The fruit of the first three watches was not to be tasted but by the end of the 4th watch, it is expected that there is fruit evident and this fruit is holy to the Lord. In Jesus’ parable, there was no fruit after 3 years/watches and by the end of the 3rd watch, which is the end of the year 5779, there were trees in danger of being cut down, but an intercessor, the gardener, who is none other than our Great Intercessor, Jesus, asked for a period of grace, one more watch, one more year of composting and working round the root issues and if no fruit had been borne by the time the firstfruit offerings were required, then the tree would be appointed the axe to the root. John the Baptist warned the Pharisees about bearing fruit in keeping with repentance and fleeing the wrath to come. He called them serpent’s seed. Sons of Belial is another way of saying that because Belial is one of the names of satan. This whole year of 5780 has been one of preparation of our hearts and lives, of cleaning and setting our spiritual houses in order. Have we surrendered to God’s counsel and conviction?

We literally have 3 days before Elul is complete and Rosh Hashanah begins. This is the cut-off for the sealing of the holy vessels, earmarked as vessels of honor for the endtime season ahead. Then the 10 days to Yom Kippur is the segment of time for those who still had things to deal with to be right with God and man. These are called the Days of Awe, days of final soul searching (considered useful to those neither fully righteous or fully wicked in the understanding of the Jewish faith), before the pronouncement of judgment over the year ahead is made on Yom Kippur for each soul. The Fall Feasts are a prophetic picture of the unfolding of the endtimes, with some sealed and set-apart and others relegated for judgment.

We see this whole season of Fall Feasts shadowed in the phrase in Daniel, ‘the court was seated and the books were opened’. This is what begins on Rosh Hashanah and ends on Yom Kippur. The books of people’s lives are being examined. Auditing is being done and areas where things do not balance are noted.

Remember that the only thing that balances the book of your life is the Blood of the Lamb. It is the only thing that wipes out debts of sin. But there must be true rending of the hearts and not just the rending of outward garments. Self-righteousness is a stench in God’s nostrils and He opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. A broken, contrite heart God will not despise. In a great house there are vessels of gold and silver, wood and clay; vessels of honor and vessels for ignoble purposes. Wooden vessels are for lowly purposes. Wood is used in the outer court. If we purify ourselves, we can be vessels of honor, useful to the Master. These words should be familiar parts of Scripture to you.

The Abraham Accord was signed on the fourth day of the wood offerings. The Spirit of the Lord said to me that now tribulation begins/breaks out/ becomes evident. Rosh Hashanah begins at 6pm on 18th of September. It is the day that kings begin their rule after anointing and crowning. It is also the day Noah released the dove from the ark for the final time and it did not return, The ground was drying and Noah could remove the cover of the ark and allow some fresh air and light in. The dove company, His precious Bridal remnant who have prepared themselves with extra oil are getting ready to fly to their portals. The year of preparation draws to a close for them and  the outpouring of their oil is appointed to begin in the Holy Place. For others, the day that burns like an oven is at the threshold.

First, the remnant saints of God are sealed in the Book of Revelation chapter 7, and then the judgments begin to be poured out. When the black horse begins to ride in Rev 6:6, there is a shout, “Do not touch the oil and the wine”. These two firstfruits offerings are holy to the Lord; these two groups of saints are hidden in the day of His anger. First the sealing of His bondservant saints, then judgment unleashed in the earth and the first one unleashed is the burning up of 1/3 of the trees!!!

Rev 7:2  Then I saw a second angel coming up from the east (the rising of the sun) and carrying the seal of the living God. And with a loud voice he called out to the four angels who had been given authority and power to injure earth and sea, Rev 7:3  Saying, Harm neither the earth nor the sea nor the trees, until we have sealed the bond servants of our God upon their foreheads.

Rev 8:7  The first angel blew [his] trumpet, and there was a storm of hail and fire mingled with blood cast upon the earth. And a third part of the earth was burned up and a third of the trees was burned up and all the green grass was burned up.

In natural terms, this speaks of a rain of asteroids bombarding the earth. spiritual terms, if we look at trees as representing men, one third of the trees are to receive judgment by fire. Some trees have been planted by the streams that make glad the city of God and bear their fruit in season. Others are unmoved by the waters calling for repentance and realignment. The transition bridge time has left them unmoved and unchanged. I cannot tell you how the fear of God grips my heart as I type these words.

The sifting and the separating is even now taking place. The vessels containing the oil offering are marked and celebrated even as they are filled, and the baskets of chopped wood are filling rapidly. Where will your life be counted? Amongst the holy or the unholy? The Holy Place and those who worship at the altar are measured with a measuring rod in Rev 11:1, but the outer court is not included. The place of the wood burning on the brazen altar is not included. This is appointed for trampling  for 3&1/2 years, for treading underfoot, like salt that has lost its savor. Oh, Spirit of the Living God help us all to be found face down at the altar of incense in these next 3 days!

Rev 22:11  He who is unrighteous (unjust, wicked), let him be unrighteous still; and he who is filthy (vile, impure), let him be filthy still; and he who is righteous (just, upright, in right standing with God), let him do right still; and he who is holy, let him be holy still. Rev 22:12  Behold, I am coming soon, and I shall bring My wages and rewards with Me, to repay and render to each one just what his own actions and his own work merit.

  1. Interesting!! I need to read again. I think you need to count the 40 days on the Hebrew scale, a day beginning at sunset. The suffering that God spoke of, is it Israel that now suffers? The $150 reminds me of the 150 days in Revelation. But yeh, quoting false prophets bodes very il for Israel.

  3. I suppose correctly speaking, Jerusalem belongs to Israel under King Melchizedek; hence why God shared the city between Benjamin and Judah.

    1 Kings 11:36 I will give one tribe (Benjamin) to his son so that David (Judah) my servant may always have a lamp before me in Jerusalem, the city where I chose to put my Name.

  4. Marcus, the Essenes would never have celebrated a feast to the golden calf. The wine feast was the new firstfruits of the year’s wine being brought to the temple 50 days after the wheat firstfruits. God commanded the firstfruits offerings of every harvest to be brought in because they belonged to Him. Therse you referenced in Hosea 2 says they lavished gold and silver on Baal. Not wine. Remember the Essenes came out of Babylonian style mixture worship being perpetrated and dwelt apart, preserving the standard originally given by God.

  5. We know very little about the Essenes, other than that they did not accept Jesus as Messiah…..Colossians 2:20 If with Christ you died to the elemental spirits of the universe, why do you live as if you still belonged to the world? Why do you submit to regulations, 21 “Do not handle, Do not taste, Do not touch”? 22 All these regulations refer to things that perish with use; they are simply human commands and teachings. 23 These have indeed an appearance of wisdom in promoting self-imposed piety, humility, and severe treatment of the body, but they are of no value in checking self-indulgence.

    1. Thank you, Sabine, the article was very interesting, especially the way the teachings of Jesus lined up with the way the Essenes lived. I read further and it seems that in the years between 12 and 30, he may have spent time in their community, studying to show himself approved with His Father’s Torah.
