This website is distinctly Messianic, comprising the Abrahamic expression of faith, which is to the Jew and the Gentile with a Hebraic character. We affirm the fullness of absolute truth contained in the Bible, embracing the cross and identifying with the convocations of the Lord as seen in the Feasts, the Sabbath and Passover. We reject the legalism of many in the Messianic movement. We reject the Babylonian Pagan traditions of the church. We consider all people Jews and Gentiles and those in all churches who are truly born of the Spirit of the living God to be one family. We reject institutional organised denominationalism (division). We foresee a great falling away of much of the church in these days, while at the same time a great restoration of part of the church. We affirm and identify with God's plan and call to the Jewish people in these days and will support and stand with them as future brothers and sisters. We stand happily with pre / mid/ and post tribbers. Our slant is cautiously pre-trib, but hey, post tribber...you're still family! Today much error has been added to Christendom and much truth has been removed. The Prophetic Scroll's aim is to deal with these issues and assist you on your road to glory.
I was saved in 1976 and became extremely interested in Bible prophecy, being an ex war-correspondent and photographer. My calling and aim is to share the dramatic and all-important issues of prophecy relating to our day. This is a calling to unfold and share the wisdom of God as contained in His word. There is also much teaching in these pages for your heart. It’s not all prophecy! Please study these things further yourself and understand that the format is non-exhaustive.

Temple Stones – Amazing Signs!
When we look into the history of Babylon and Jerusalem, we see some amazing things that are in fact signs for this generation. There will be no tribulation period start and no rapture until some of these things are at least in sight. Recent signs in the sky are a pure detraction, and a waste of time. All the pieces of the jigsaw must be in place together for anyone to proclaim the rapture or tribulation start.
Babylon – the world:
Up to the time of the tower of Babel there was one universal language. Part of the destruction of Babel (and Babylon), involved the confusing and mixing of language into many, so that the people could not work together, to reach God - man’s way.
The Greek form of the word “Babylon” in the New Covenant means “The gate of God” or the “crossing point to God.” In Hebrew the word Babel means “confusion or mixing together.”
In pagan belief systems, The Tower of Babel was seen as a transfer point between dimensions. It was the place of crossing-over into the heavenly dimension of stars and constellations.
Nimrod was the king of Babylon. He had a bloodline type that represented 666. He is also associated with the number 13, which is the number of rebellion. Nimrod’s symbol was a cross with a loop at the top, known as the “anck”, meaning “The symbol of life and fertility.” Yet he was death personified.
Nimrod had another well-known occult –inspired symbol. It was “X”.
In pagan belief, Nimrod was born on the 25th December – the “Sabbath of Babylon!”
Nimrod was referred to as the king of kings and lord of lords in the Egyptian “Book of the dead.” He was the ruler of a one-world empire system. He was the founder of the modern banking system. He was known as the “ruler of the world”.
To be a king you must have a city and a tower. The two together identify characteristics of the people of that city.
Nimrod defiantly went against God by saying, “We will build a tower, whose top will reach heaven, and we will make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered over the face of the earth,...” (Genesis 11:4) It was Lucifer who said “I will ascend to the throne of God.”
The people defied God again and said, “We will not be scattered.”
The name “Nimrod” originates from the Akkadian people who according to occult legend, embarked from the planet Nibiru when it visited the earth long ago. Nimrod was closely identified with the god Marduk, the god of Nibiru, and the constellations!
His name means “Rebellion.” Nimrod was known for his ongoing rebellion to God.
Nimrod’s name carries a much more serious meaning: It means the “right to rebel”, or the “right of revolution”. It is the right and duty of these people to rebel against God. It carries the idea of corporate rebellion.
The one thing that identifies end-time Babylon is corporate rebellion to God and rejection of His word and ways.
►The spirit of end-time Babylon is the spirit of antichrist and will always rebel against God’s ways.
The spirit of Babylon lives on in the world-system today. The spirits of Nimrod and other key figures continue today.
Jeremiah 50 & 51 describes the total destruction of end-time Babylon, never to rise again.
Jeremiah 50:39 “The wild desert beasts shall dwell there...it (Babylon) shall be inhabited no more – forever, nor shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation.”
Today there are many who teach that end-time Babylon is literal Babylon, in Iraq which will be rebuilt fulfilling the end-time prophesies of “Babylon the Great.”
If end-time “Babylon the Great” is to be a massive literal city of world commerce, industry and politics, built in Iraq, first you must get rid of Islam, then you need to wait 50 years or so for a city of that significance to be built. And then of course, real “Babylon the Great” – the world-system, gets off the hook of God’s judgement, because it will all fall on that city in Iraq.
You can’t fit all the end-time Babylon verses into one as yet un-built city in Iraq. They don’t fit.
“Babylon the Great” will arise very soon with a new supernatural power. It will be the entire world-system headed by the ancient gods, demons, and devils of old and the antichrist.
Some say Babylon has already been rebuilt.
No, Babylon has not been rebuilt! Saddam Hussein began rebuilding Babylon, but it was not on the original site. He gave up in 2004, and now what remains is a half built tourist centre the size of a shopping mall. – Look it up!
“Babylon the Great” of the end-times can only be the world-system, which would include the cities of the world like New York, Paris, Rome, London etc.
Its ultimate destruction will come about at the end of the tribulation period, as our Lord returns.
Jeremiah 51:8 “Babylon has suddenly fallen and been destroyed...”
Jerusalem - Israel:
In the end days God will restore to Israel a pure language – Hebrew. But look what for:
Zephaniah 3:9 “I will restore to the peoples a pure language, that they all may call on the name of the Lord, to serve Him with one accord.”
How amazing is that!
At the destruction of the tower of Babel God confused and divided the world into numerous languages, so that they could not work with one accord. Now, here we see the opposite.
God has brought the language of Hebrew out of obscurity for His end-time purpose which will include His people serving Him in one accord – His way! This is a reversal of Babel in a sense.
The Tower of Babel is called “The House of Nimrod” by the Hebrew Rabbis. How right they are! Babylon is the house of rebellion – the house of the antichrist.
The Rabbis believe that the opposite of the wilful rebellion of Babylon is seen in the building of the two Temples and the Third Temple soon to come in Jerusalem. That will be “God’s tower”, so they believe.
Bear in mind that Jerusalem means, “city of peace,” while Babylon means, “confusion”! Today the world of confusion wants to take over the city of peace! That’s also just what Satan wants for you personally – destruction of your peace with his confusion.
Mount Moriah is the spot on which the two previous temples were built and were destroyed. It is referred to by the Rabbis as “the centre of the world.” Today, the Western Wall is actually one of the foundation walls of the Second Temple and not the Temple itself, which was totally destroyed.
The meaning of Mount Moriah is, “heavenly light or vision”.
The Hebrew Sages teach that the Western Wall will never be destroyed. Yeshua said “Not one stone will be left standing upon another” applying that to the Temple itself and not the Western Wall which is the foundation.
Jerusalem has been destroyed and rebuilt nine times but the Western Wall remained. (Nine is the number of finality.)
When the last temple was destroyed, tradition maintains that all the gates of heaven were closed except the Gate of Tears. This is the “gate” or entrance to the “Wailing Wall,” another name for the Western Wall. Messiah Himself will open the Golden Gate further up the wall.
At the end of the Six Day War the cry went out with numerous shofar blasts from the Lion’s Gate, “The Temple Mount is in our hands.”
Isaiah 28:16 “Behold I lay in Zion a foundation stone, a tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation...”
Genesis 17:7-8 “I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you. Also I will give you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.”
The incredible “Pierced Stone.”
The greatest rock in the entire world lies under the covering of a golden Islamic Dome on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount. It is hidden from the Jews. They are not allowed by Islamic law to look upon it. No Jew can see this pierced rock!
This is the “Rock” of the Dome of the Rock. It is the rock on which Abraham laid Isaac to sacrifice him. It is the rock of the centre of Eden and upon which God created Adam. It is the rock over which the two previous temples were built. In one corner is a piercing or hole right through the rock, giving it its name.
This pierced rock was also believed to be the spot where John the Baptist, spoke of “preparing the way for the Messiah.”
The Rabbis call this the “Foundation Stone of the World.” It is on the spot the Rabbis call “The centre of the world.”
It is the most important rock in the world, but it is under Islamic occupation – for now!
The great veil in the Holy of Holies in the Temple was torn from top to bottom, supernaturally, as our Messiah was pierced and died on the cross. That opened the view to and of Messiah. But the Jews rejected Him and the work of the cross, leading to a supernatural “veil” of spiritual blindness upon them and a new “veil” – the Dome over the pierced rock.
Very soon the Jews will see all the real treasures of Jerusalem. They will see their Messiah, the Jew of all Jews. He is now the Lion of the Tribe of the Jews! A roaring Lamb of compassion to many, and a fearsome Lion of wrath and destruction to others.
It is the “Jews who seek a sign”, says the Bible. Do you see what I see? Oh, what a sign indeed!
It’s not just the Third Temple that is coming to the Temple Mount, but real sight of the Jewish, pierced and risen Messiah – King of Kings.
God placed a spiritual veil of blindness on the Jews because of their rejection of the pierced Messiah. Islam has placed a physical “veil” (the Dome) over the pierced rock, also to the Jews. Does this mean that as the spiritual veil is lifted, the physical Dome will also be removed?
As the Temple veil was torn in a moment, so the covering of the pierced rock will be removed in a flash. It may be by an act of war, or earthquake or it may be by an act of agreement!
Today there is an incredible secret move afoot within the Jewish Sanhedrin to accept plans by Muslims to rebuild the Temple on this spot! We may even see some sort of supernatural event occurring, as the veil was torn supernaturally!
Isaiah 29:5 “The multitude of your (Jerusalem) foes shall be like fine dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones, like chaff that passes away. It shall be in an instant, suddenly.”
Jeremiah 6:26 “O daughter of My people, clothe yourselves in sackcloth, and roll about in ashes! Make mourning as for an only son, for the plunder will suddenly come upon us.” (The context is an attack from the north – Gog / Magog)
One thing you can bet on, is that the full revealing of the pierced stone will be a massive sign to the Jews of just who their Messiah is!
This is why the location of the Third Temple is so important. It must be right in the very spot where the Dome of the Rock now stands over that stone of great significance – the foundation stone of the world!
This pierced stone is called “The Foundation of the world” by the Hebrew sages. The cross of Calvary is the real, true foundation of the godly world and the kingdom to come. It is the only foundation stone of personal salvation.
Today there are many who teach that the Third Temple does not have to be built exactly where the Dome stands today. They are wrong. The Temple Institute already has plans drawn up for the new Temple. They say they are waiting for this one spot to become available! They will not build it anywhere else.
Let’s take these glorious analogies a step further. If a satanic, Islamic Dome is the covering obscuring the pierced stone, could we say that it is the spirit of antichrist hiding the identity of the real Messiah from the Jews? Yes, we can.
Can we also say that the soon coming unveiling of the antichrist, will also trick many into believing that he, the antichrist, is the Messiah? Again, yes we can.
Many Jews will go into the new Temple and look upon the pierced stone and see Yeshua, their Messiah in salvation. Tragically, many others will go into that new Temple and see only a dead, pierced stone! But they will also see antichrist disguised as the true Messiah.
“He was pierced for our iniquities.” (Isaiah 53:5)
The “piercing” in the stone is the entrance to a cavern below it known by Jews as the “Well of the Souls.” The Muslims believe it is the waiting area for souls awaiting Judgement Day and hell. This well, according the Hebrew Talmud, is believed to be the source of the River of Paradise.
The Jews who continue to refuse their Messiah will think the antichrist is their Messiah, but he will be Babylon’s un-pierced messiah, driven by the spirits of Nimrod, all the popes, Hitler, and all the new world order leaders, manifest in the final antichrist.
The Great Catastrophe:
The Balfour Declaration was published on 2nd November 1917 – one hundred years ago. It was the original support document in which Lord Balfour of the British Government paved the way for the establishment of a Jewish State in the land of Israel.
It was the foundation document for the State of Israel which was birthed in May 1948. This is the day the Palestinians call the “great catastrophe.”
The Declaration loved by the Jews and hated by the Palestinians, remains controversial today, for one stupid short-sighted reason. The world and their Palestinian puppets believe that Lord Balfour had no authority to give the land of Israel to the Jews, because it was not his to give!
They all made one giant devil-inspired mistake! The land is God’s and He has the authority to give it to the Jews through whichever agent He chose! He declared many times, even by eternal covenant that He would give the land to the Jews. So, if you remove God and His word from the equation, then, yes, Balfour was out of line!
In these days you have to make peace with God’s word and accept it...or make peace with Satan’s word and reject God’s!
God gave the land of Israel to the Jews and made eternal covenant promises to them for one very simple reason. He knew, in His foreknowledge that they would eventually obey Him, come to salvation, and go on to take salvation to the world.
It is Babylon – the world-system and its religion that hates that, simply because they hate God!
So, we have an ongoing “Great Catastrophe” in the eyes of Islam (and Babylon – the world.)
Their “Great Catastrophe” is God’s blessing to the world! “The Foundation Stone of the World,” lying at the “Centre of the World,” is our pierced Messiah and out of Him comes salvation for the world, and pure and holy resurrection life.
As an evil imposter, Satan himself will dwell upon that pierced rock calling himself God and deceiving half the world – but only for a very short season!
Talk about exciting times!
Psalm 95:3 “The Lord is a great God, and the great King above all gods!”
The soon coming great sign will be seen on the Temple Mount. It will be something that will facilitate and allow for the new temple to be built right there.
The new temple is required by prophecy to be there at the midway point in the tribulation period. A pre-tribulation rapture means that we may not see any construction taking place, but we are very likely to see the forerunners to it.
Until there is at least sight of the beginnings of the Temple, there can be no tribulation-start and therefore no pre-tribulation rapture. So a lot hinges on this.
These things may occur very quickly. In the previous edition, I outlined why we will see the plans being made for the antichrist to be revealed. That is a major sign to watch for.
My friends, the tribulation period will not start without the antichrist. The antichrist will not arrive while the restrainer (the Spirit indwelt church) is here.
The major signs to watch for are the plans for the coming of the antichrist and his peace covenant, and the coming of the new temple. At this point in time, these signs are not on the stage, but as said, they can occur quickly.
I warn you again – looking for signs in the sky, watching and then predicting the rapture and tribulation start without taking note of these signs, will get you into big trouble with God – watch and see...that lot is just awakening now to its satanic role.
I hope you see the futility, meaninglessness and senselessness in seeking and pursuing all sort of signs in the sky while all of these things are not in place.
Today there are too many self-appointed watchmen out there with eyes full of mud. They watch for meaningless signs, failing repeatedly. They are becoming more in number, and more dangerous!
You can’t simply apply what meanings you want to scripture. Most times it knocks on to other verses or doctrines.
As said many times of late, I believe we are on the verge of great and exciting new things. Many churches and ministries will go with the prophetic flow in a new found unity...its coming. But be careful, great deception travels that highway too.
A soft, humble, broken heart before God and His word, and a hard, impenetrable heart to error, false doctrine and deception, will get you a real long way in the kingdom.
“Rock of ages, cleft for me! Let me hide myself in Thee”.
I took these pictures in KwaZulu/Natal. The background is a fever-tree forest. I took the zebra picture nearby and merged them all.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 390: November 7th 2017.
Why rapture dates fail?
When the rapture trumpet is silent, you have no right to speak for God, in this regard. What you are hearing is the sound of silence. Your words are your own presumptions.
There have been numerous famous, failed rapture dates, especially of late. They are nothing new. There are some big, glaring consistencies in the reasons for the failures. Take note of them.
It is no small issue. As I’ve said numerous times, failed rapture dates discourage many people, especially new believers. It makes a mockery of Bible prophecy, God’s word and the kingdom of God. It ultimately gives the devil fire-power.
We are not forbidden from looking and watching for all these end-time things including the rapture. We are to watch and pray about it all and, most importantly, we are to watch for wrong dates and the reasons why. That can also teach us plenty.
As regular readers would be aware, I distanced myself from all the recent rapture date sets and surrounding issues, especially everything to do with the Revelation 12 sign – the greatest deception to strike the church in recent times.
Before we go any further, let me say without any ambiguity, that I believe in the very soon coming pre-tribulation rapture of the church. I will continue to look, watch, seek and pray about it all. I will keep you informed, but I will not for one second, get on the disaster-train that many are still on!
Psalm 27:14 “Wait on the Lord, be of good courage, and He will strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the Lord.”
So, what’s the big reason for the failures?
Why have all the rapture dates failed?
There is one big overriding reason: God was not in them! If He was, it would have happened. Many people have for so many years beaten the rapture-drum and blown the rapture-trumpet, but God was not in it. It was all meaningless noise.
That’s the reason so many got so angry when their rapture date failed on September 23rd. I know all about it. I was on the receiving end of the fury of some who were so angry with me because I refused their date and then more dates.
In fact, when I publically distanced myself from all the recent rapture teachers and their reasons for it, the statistics on this website plunged. They are only now recovering. Many reading these words, still can’t believe how badly they were hoodwinked by the sounds of silence!
They simply could not believe and accept that God ignored their date. He was not in it!
God is absolutely faithful to His word, but not to man’s presumptions.
The Holy Spirit will show you things to come. (John 16:13) A failed rapture date means one absolutely sure thing: There was no Spirit of God in it at all!
Because the date setters had no godly authority, to set dates, they had to assert their own authority with arrogant, presumptuousness, to affirm their self-importance.
Be careful of people who ridicule you as a method of intimidation to get you to follow them. It often works, especially with young believers, but God is never in it!
More reasons for failed rapture dates:
Failed rapture dates come from people with no fear of the Lord. “It’s a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Lord.” (Hebrews 10:31) It’s a terrifying thing to fall into His hands with no fear of Him!
***2 Corinthians 5:11 “Since we know what it means to fear the Lord, we persuade men.”
There are far too many loose cannons out there, presuming to speak for God, some with a YouTube ministry, who have no fear of the Lord in them. Read that verse above again and note the ministry requirement to evangelise!
James 3:1 “Let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we will be judged more strictly.”
Too many rapture date setters are sensation seekers, looking for self-affirmation and self importance. Many are into it purely out of pride. ●“God told me”, ●“I had a dream.” ●“It’s 100% for sure,” was the repeated claim! – All manipulative hogwash!
They were all the deceived! Then you saw them pitifully grasping at straws, trying to save face, rather the doing the right thing – repenting.
After all the Revelation 12 drama, I saw one single individual teacher / author repent! Only one! To him I say, you are a real star – our Lord is going to use you in the future!
It’s not about proving yourself right and others wrong. It’s about being right with God and having some concern for multitudes in the valley of decision. Most rapture date setters care nothing at all about leading the masses astray – nothing! All they care about is the attention they get.
As always, there are some notable exceptions.
The harm of failed rapture dates:
Failed rapture dates desensitise you to the real thing. It’s like the one crying wolf. Right now, many people need to be re-sensitised to the soon-coming rapture.
Witnessing the gospel to the unsaved mostly involves explaining things, not making excuses for all the failed rapture teachers.
I received a number of emails from people who were long standing readers, who then rejected me because I rejected their rapture position. They were totally confused, dejected, cast down and ready to give up, after the big failure. Of course I did help them as best I could.
These failed rapture teachers cast doubt on God’s truth. They are particularly harmful to struggling or young Christians. You can say as many have done, “They shouldn’t have been putting so much trust in us.” You fool!
I have no problem at all with people making money out of selling Christian products, but I wonder how many made a lot of money out of failure!
The positive side of it all is it teaches a powerful lesson – first hand!
And it also gives us a fresh start, so to speak, as we put the past behind us and go refreshed, in repentance, into all the good things ahead.
“No man knows the time”...Oh yes?
The most popular well-known verse quoted by the saved and unsaved is “No man knows the time.” Yet it is totally wrongly applied. The Bible says no such thing! (Matthew 24:36)
All you have to do is read it and you will see...which I’m not going to do for you!
The verses preceding the “no man knows” verse in Matthew 24:36 are all speaking of the tribulation period. In fact there is a heading just before this verse saying “The Great Tribulation.” The verses afterwards also speak of the tribulation period.
So why would a church age, rapture verse be right in the middle? That is exegetically wrong. They must also be talking of the tribulation!
But here is the big thing: The verse in Matthew 24:36 says “Of this day and hour knows no man...” It is speaking of the horrific conditions of the tribulation period that no one knows!
The term “Of this day and hour” is also a reference or idiom to a tribulation event at Rosh Hashanah!
Sorry, you can’t use it correctly to say that no one knows the time of the rapture!
The soon coming rapture:
I have dealt with this in previous editions, but it is very important, so here goes again:
In dealing with the rapture: “Be not deceived” says Paul. So there is then apparently a deception in this whole issue!
One of my early spiritual fathers, Derek Prince, used to say: “Whenever the Bible says, “be not deceived,” it’s because God’s people are deceived on that very thing!
2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 “Concerning the coming of our Lord, Yeshua the Messiah and our gathering together to Him we ask you not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled in spirit or by word or by letter as if from us, as though the day of Messiah has come. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition.”
The above passage needs some exposition: “The Day of Messiah (Christ) referred to here is not the final day of the tribulation period. Some other verses do refer to the day of the Lord as the final day of the tribulation.
Others speak of the “day” as the entire church age. Most verses however, refer to that “day” as the full seven year tribulation. In fact there is one verse in Revelation 3:10, which refers to the whole tribulation as “the hour that will come upon the whole world.”
The term “falling away” (above), is also called the great apostasy in some translations. The original word is “apostasia.” It is used as a departure from the faith in some translations and as a departure from the law in others. But when it has the definite article in front of it, as it does here, it does not mean departure from the faith, but the departure – the rapture.
By the way, the greatest, monumental departure from the faith has already occurred. It was the Catholic created dark ages (spiritually).
So if we write the verse out correctly it says: “Don’t be deceived, for the tribulation period will not begin unless the rapture takes place first and the antichrist is revealed.
That makes perfect sense, and is consistent with other verses and is exegetically correct.
I hope you see how important this is! It means that the rapture and tribulation-start will occur before, or as the antichrist is revealed.
Now, here’s the big issue: According to all the verses relating to the coming of the antichrist, put together, we see that he will arrive making a peace covenant of sorts with Israel and the many for seven years. (This is most probably between Israel the UN or the Palestinians, or some world body.)
No big peace summit in history just happened. They were all planned months ahead of time. The Oslo accord for example, which some believed was this antichrist peace treaty, was planned and announced many months before.
Some say that this coming peace treaty is not a peace treaty because some verses don’t say so. Well, other verses do, so throw that out. Some say that this will be a renewal of an existing peace treaty. That’s rubbish. There was never a seven-year peace treaty! So, throw that out.
My point is simple, very simple: We will see this peace treaty / covenant coming about well ahead of time. It will be all over the news in the run up to the event. All parties will have been prepped, dates set and ready to roll, perhaps months before.
If you have been taking note of prophetic related news items that I have posted here on this website, you would have seen that we already have a significant peace treaty planed for 2018 – no date has been set yet.
If there is no sight of a coming peace covenant – forget about the rapture and tribulation start...it won’t happen until that happens – “be not deceived”! This is one of the big signs to watch for. (In next week’s edition, Lord willing, I’ll share with you another major sign to watch for.)
Avoid and steer clear of the unrepentant failed rapture date setters. They have been encouraging one another, but not in repentance for the damage they have done to the body of Messiah. They have discredited themselves.
Jeremiah 23:16 “Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophecy to you and make you worthless; they speak a vision of their own heart, not from the mouth of the Lord.”
Deuteronomy 18:20 “The prophet who presumes to speak a word in My name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die.”
You may be shocked to know that some, who you may have thought were trustworthy, are now removing Israel from their presentations. I warned of this a number of times.
Tragically, the Bible warns of a flood of false teachers presenting bigger and worse deceptions in time to come. It will be a mine-field for those who are not secure in the Lord.
A real dream or visitation or audible word from God will shatter and slay you. It will put the fear of God in you. You will see it in that broken individual!
Steer clear of the many Jezebel’s in the church with a “ministry.”
Isaiah 9:15-16 “The prophet who teaches lies, he is the tail, for the leaders of this people cause them to err, and those who are led by them are destroyed.”
The true prophet / watchman / biblical analyst:
Ezekiel 33:33 “When this comes to pass – surely it will come – then they will know that a prophet has been among them.”
Our Lord rebuked the Jews for not knowing the time of their visitation and commanded the early church to watch for and know the signs!
The watchers must know what to watch for, where and when. There will be numerous signs of the coming tribulation period and therefore the pre-tribulation rapture.
I give you my word that I will watch the church. I will watch Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews. I will watch social, economic and political issues. I will watch moral issues, and the media. I will watch false prophecies, false teachers, and deceivers. I will watch them all through the eyes of God’s word, in His Spirit. (In other words, not in my own efforts or ideas.)
By the way, do you know what the opposite of the rapture is? It is terrible regret!
Sometimes these things (failed dates and prophecies) can be a test from the Lord as well. In these days.
Ezekiel 7:14 “They have blown the trumpet and made everyone ready, but no one goes out, for My wrath is on all their multitude.”
Deuteronomy 13:1-3 “If there arises among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams and he gives you a sign and wonder and it comes to pass, leading you after other gods, which you have not known, you shall not listen to that prophet or dreamer, for the Lord your God is testing you to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and soul.”
1 Thessalonians 5:4-6 “You brethren are not in darkness that this Day should overtake you as a thief...Therefore let us not sleep as the others do, but let us watch and be sober.”
Not watching is equated to not knowing the time of visitation. (Luke 19:44)
Revelation 3:3 (To the dead church – Sardis): “Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief and you will not know what hour I will come upon you.”
When is the rapture?
My friends, it is soon. But we don’t have all the signs in place yet (Don’t miss next week’s edition!) God is not speaking or confirming anything on the rapture just yet.
In the past God always warned ahead of big judgements. I believe He will do so again. We will see the pieces begin to fall into place. We will see the signs – the correct signs and as the day approaches, our Lord will reveal more to those whom He chooses to.
We will see no signs at all for the rapture of the church itself, but we will see signs for Israel and signs of the tribulation period. Obviously, a pre-tribulation rapture means we simply have to make the application.
I’m sticking my neck out and saying, I believe it may well be this Hebrew year 5778 ending in September 2018. That is not the word of God, so don’t put undue trust on it yet. Just keep it in your head, and we will see as we move forward. God will confirm things in His time, if He wills.
Otherwise we wait - mutter, mutter!
The voice of the Lord:
If all the failed rapture dates through the church age were because God was not in them and He was silent. It means the answer is to know and hear the voice of the Lord.
This is a huge, glorious subject, but briefly, God speaks through His word correctly used and applied. God never speaks through the miss-use of His word. He does not always speak! Sometimes we need to wait on Him.
We need to cultivate, over time, the conditions in our lives to hear His voice. We need to learn to hear! We need to learn how He speaks and when He speaks and when He is silent. We need to learn how to hear the sounds of silence.
It takes a long time of desperate pursuit of our Lord in the fear of Him to know and hear His voice.
Occasionally, God can and does speak in unusual ways, unexpectedly – that’s His prerogative. That “still small voice” in our hearts will always be there, but many times we don’t hear it because we are not still, and it is drowned out with noise.
John18:37 "Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice."
Psalm 96:11-13 “Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar and all its fullness; let the field be joyful and all that is in it. The trees of the woods will rejoice before the coming of the Lord, for He is coming to judge the earth. He shall judge the world with righteousness and the peoples with His truth.”
We are on the verge of great developments prophetically. We are about to see major developments. Don’t get discouraged now! Don’t you dare throw in the towel because of another rapture date failure!
Be encouraged, stand firm in endurance. A spectacular future lies ahead for you.
This is a composite of a number of pictures I took of trees in Botswana with an observant lion!
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 389: October 31st 2017.
Deadly Disguised Deities:
Dangerous days lie ahead! Truth will be increasingly cast down. In its place will arises a new depth of dangerous deception, disguised as truth, but it will be a charade, and a counterfeit! It will be perpetrated mostly within the church, by some.
“Occultation” is an astronomical term describing a situation when one object is obscured by another that passes between it and the observer, like an eclipse for example. But the “occultation” refers not to the whole event, but to the blind-spot area of the observer. The term also has deep spiritual implications, as you can imagine! This is called “blind-spot bias in psychological terms.”
Many reading this will be shocked to see how severely they have fallen under the spell of “occultation” by the devil. It’s just beginning!
You need to test all things, judge all things, and receive the love of the truth. You must study to show yourself approved to God. Search the scriptures daily to see if these things be so. Take heed to yourselves. Do not believe every spirit and resist the devil.
Paul says in Acts 20:31 “I didn’t cease to warn everyone with tears.”
Today, things have changed. Many of whom you could trust before, are now to be avoided and it seems to be getting worse.
The deadly mixture:
The most dangerous thing is truth anointed by Satan. Mixture of truth and error poisons the truth.
One of his methods is “divide and conquer.” He brings in error to divide up your truth.
Truth is pure and clean, and can’t be mixed with untruth or error, except in wrong hands.
You can’t mix 2+2=4 with 2+2=5! The subtle, first step of the devil to gain access to the believer comes through acceptance of a little bit of error.
That then blinds you to the truth and the devil gets a lot more than a foot in the door, and walks right in! You have invited him in, unknowingly.
►In ancient mythology, the pinecone was seen as a source of spiritual illumination or the third eye of enlightenment. It is also called, “the eye of Ra” (God). The pinecone is the symbol of the creation of a enlightenment by mixing good and evil or truth and error. Pinecones are also pagan symbols of eternal life, common in occult practise. The pinecone is used in much Catholic culture.
This is the sky god of Nibiru, “Anu” (above) holding out a pinecone ahead of him.
Ancient gods and signs in the sky:
There are literally thousands of ancient pagan gods and so-called deities that were, and in some cases, still are worshipped in satanic traditions, originating from Egypt, Babylon and Rome.
We must have a brief look at some of them, because they are making a re-appearance now, in disguise, even in the church.
We need to look briefly at the gods: Nibiru and the Anunnaki, Anu, Enlin, Enki, Ishtar, Marduk.
●Nibiru: This is a so-called planet owned by a god. The god of Nibiru, according to Babylonian tradition was the god of “crossing over” or transition. That’s what the name, “Nibiru” means. He was known as the “Great Sign” and the “Heavenly sign”. He was the god who ordered and arranged the constellations. The “Nibiru point” was the point at which constellations produced a sign.
The god of the planet Nibiru is also known as Marduk. Nibiru is sometimes called “Marduk’s star.”
The Anunnaki, a half human, god-like hybrid people disembarked from the planet Nibiru when it visited the earth 450,000 years ago. They brought with them gold from outer space. Some believe it was the Anunnaki who built the Pyramids in Egypt.
In Egypt the Anunnaki were known as the “Neteru,” literally meaning the “The guardian watchmen!” They were the watchmen of the signs in the sky. Their symbol is an all-seeing eye, as well as a winged dove representing peace as you come into union with this god. Here it is:
The name “Babylon” in Hebrew means “Gateway of the gods.” Or the “Crossing transition point of the gods.” This is also the meaning of Babel. (The meaning of Babel and Babylon is generally referred to as “mixture”, but in its extended form, in Hebrew, it means “crossing point.”)
Nibiru means crossing over, the same as the meaning of the word Babylon, which also means “mixture”. A mixture of truth and error always nullifies truth.
●Marduk: He was the god-son of the Anunnaki. He was the god of Nibiru. He was also known as the “King of the Earth”, because he stayed behind on earth when some of the Anunnaki were taken off the earth by Nibiru later on. He stayed to create a “Global Elite.”
●Anu: “An” = sky. He is the Sumerian god of the sky, worshipped by the Anunnaki people.
The image above is of Anu, the sky god on his throne holding a ring and a rod. The “rod of authority” was commonly seen in representations of Anu. At the top is the Nibiru god riding the constellations from which the circular “celestial illuminator” hangs. Inset: Is another representation of Anu, the winged god with an “all seeing eye” on his head. The full image reveals 12 planets around his head.
The image above is another of the sky god Anu, seen here riding his flying disk, which odd people believe was his personal UFO!
Anu was known as the Great Sky Father, the “Lord of the Constellations.” He was also called the “King of Gods, Spirits, and Demons and the Supreme Ruler of Heaven.”
Anu’s mythological daughter was Ishtar. (Easter)
Ishtar was the goddess of sex. Her symbols were rabbits (symbolic of fertility) and eggs, also symbols of life and fertility. She is seen with another of her symbols, the rod of authority. She was worshipped by sex acts in front of her image. She was the god whom the Catholics replaced Passover with, calling it Easter.
The image above shows Ishtar, the queen of the night, naked, ready for sex, with a ring of eternity and rod of authority in her hand.
This is a poem supposedly written by Ishtar, entitled “Descent into the underworld”:
“If you do not open the gate for me to come in, I will smash the door and shatter the bolt. I shall smash the doorposts and overturn the doors. I shall raise up the dead and they shall eat the living. And the dead shall outnumber the living.”
●Enki: is one of the gods of the Anunnaki known as “the god of the waters.” This god was believed to be the one who created massive floods. Together with the god of the wind, Enlin, they would produce chaos through hurricanes and floods.
● Ishum: He was a minor god of the Anunnaki . He is the “god of fire” and is believed to have once used forerunners to a nuclear bomb. His name means, “scorched earth.”
Nibiru, the world’s great scapegoat!
As you should know, Nibiru (Planet X) has been prophesied by many ignorant, stupid people to hit the earth and annihilate it many times before. It has been directly linked to the rapture by many and became an integral part of the Revelation 12 sign – and still is.
Nibiru has failed to appear every time. Of course that’s because it doesn’t exist – but don’t tell them that, unless you want to start a fight with Satan.
If Nibiru, were to miraculously appear and strike the earth, (remember it is supposedly four times the size of earth) it would be the biggest blame-shift and scapegoat in world history.
People would blame all the catastrophes, shakings, storms, upheavals and destruction on Nibiru, not Satan. Remember that much of the great shaking in the tribulation period will be God’s direct doing as well, due to mankind’s sin.
If the great shaking and destruction soon to come, is all Nibiru’s fault, it’s not because of the evil, sin and the wickedness of mankind reaching a crescendo! So mankind, in his sin, gets off the hook!
The lunatic fringe say Nibiru is about to strike the earth! But no one can find it. Except me that is! I have found it! There’s a very good reason why others can’t find it. It doesn’t exist.
But when we apply the equation Nibiru = Satan, we have found him, and yes he is about to strike the earth in the form of the antichrist!
If you say “Nibiru is coming,” you are really saying Satan is coming. Yes, we know he is coming in the form of antichrist, but that’s not Nibiru! Miss-naming something or someone has huge implications. If you call Satan Nibiru, you have shifted blame and responsibility and you have been deceived.
The Sunday Express of Britain published a lead story on September 14th. The headline said: “Mysterious UK crop-circle is a sign Nibiru is coming on September 23rd 2017.” Hmm, apparently the god Nibiru doesn’t read The Sunday Express. Or maybe he just forgot to hit the earth on that great deception-date!
Signs in the sky send billions to hell:
The Roman Emperor Constantine, the founder of the Catholic church, saw a sign in the sky in a remarkable vision. He saw a cross with the words: “In this sign conquer the world.” This became one of the motivating forces behind the Catholic church, which when formed, led the world into spiritual darkness for a thousand years. Here is the sign of Constantine at bottom right, superimposed over the sign of the Sumerian sky god. Note how similar they are.
The gods of Babylon named Ishtar (Easter) and Nimrod, the lord of Christmas, struck the earth in the form of the Catholic church and blinded the world to truth. The dark-ages resulted. Now we have related demon-gods about to “conquer” the world again.
Mohammad also saw a sign in the sky, which led him to form the Muslim religion.
As Christians, the Bible tells us that there will be signs in the sky. But it says what the signs are, whom they are for, and what they mean, when and why they will appear! Funny thing is, you just have to read the surrounding verses and you will see exactly that!
Be careful following signs when a mass of false signs will strike the earth - according to prophecy.
The failed Revelation 12 sign announces the coming antichrist:
Demons live forever, so do fallen angels. All the ancient gods never actually existed, but the evil spirits and demons behind these so-called deities, and their names, do exist and are making a comeback right now.
They are coming back right now, disguised, cloaked and veiled.
The Revelation 12 sign was a failure, with one error built upon the next, but it was also an announcement. It was the point marking the start of great deception soon to come. It was the announcement of coming “occultation.”
It was the great widening divide, striking the unrepentant teachers.
There will shortly be a resurgence of attention given to Nibiru and these gods – mark those words!
Please remember our equation:
Nibiru = Satan (and all the gods mentioned above). Therefore Satan is coming to strike the earth in his new form as the antichrist! With him, and in fact, ahead of the antichrist, will come a flood of false gods, false beliefs and great disguised deceptions.
Much of what is coming will mutate into a new form of replacement theology and anti-Semitism.
The devil will gain access to many in the church through related Jezebel spirits in the church and so-called teachers, who promote a mixture of truth and error, knowingly or not.
To be right with God involves two major things affecting two areas. You must be right in heart and right in doctrinal truth. It’s no good saying, that your heart is right. You must have both at work in you.
Truth, inwardly shed abroad in your heart, and the love of the truth, makes you stable and right with God. It also prepares you to stand securely in the coming onslaught, in which truth will be increasingly perverted and cast down.
Isaiah 59:14 “...Righteousness stands afar off, for truth is cast down in the street...so truth fails.”
Nibiru, the world’s excuse for the rapture:
The Nibiru myth is that this giant planet, driven by its god, offloaded the godlike Anunnaki people on the earth 450,000 years ago. The legends claim that the Anunnaki evolved into the human race, but there were some who remained half god / half human and they could not stay on the earth. At some point they were “fetched” by Nibiru and removed from the earth, while the Anunnaki’s who had evolved into humans remained on the earth.
One legend proclaims that the Anunnaki left the earth from a “spaceport” on Mt. Sinai.
The story is obviously all a far-fetched lie of the devil, but why do some Christians who appear to have at least some basic form of education, believe in Nibiru today?
Occultation, and the curses produced by all these false gods, and Nibiru, will deliver you on a platter to the devil!
►If Nibiru, according to the legend, removed the half god / half humans from the earth before, do you see what I see? What a brilliant excuse for the real rapture when it occurs!
The world and the left-behind, so-called Christians, will yell, - “It was Nibiru that took them!”
How did these gods get into the Christian community?
How did other occult, pagan, Babylonian practises like Christmas and Easter get in? Well, they got in through the front door! The early church left its first love! That’s a dangerous thing to do!
“Wormwood”! They say! You see, Joel, Nibiru is in the Bible! Hogwash, you fool – I say! The verses relating to wormwood in the Revelation are the result of numerous meteorite strikes. (Try reading it.) None of the meteors or asteroids is a planet four times the size of the earth, racing through space to hit the earth. If you have any brains at all you would realise that any object anywhere near that size travelling at astronomic speeds would totally annihilate the earth, shattering it into billions of pieces.
The Bible indicates nothing of the sort!
The new breed of dangerous watchmen:
There are too many blind watchmen out there with eyes blinded by pride, and self-ambition and self-assertion, instead of eyes filled with pure truth! Some are just plainly ignorant of God’s word and fully disqualified for any form of ministry.
Watchmen of the Lord must be “arrested” by the truth. They are to see everything through the great measure of all things; the word of God, inspired, revealed and led by the Spirit of God.
Watchmen without the revelatory gifts of the Spirit are no watchmen at all – they are blind even though they think they are the kingpins. They are doomed to see things wrongly – it has to be so. The revelatory gifts come exclusively through the baptism in the Spirit.
Have you ever noticed that watchmen without the spirit always get things relating to the future wrong, while getting things relating to the past right?
Do you as a minister of the gospel have and demonstrate the voice and authority of God in your material, or are you a man-pleaser, seeking the “approval of man?” Are you influenced by the voice of the masses, or the voice of YouTube, with its numerous shallow messages of rank deception?
One of the numerous emails I received recently about my total rejection of the Revelation 12 sign said this: “I didn’t feel right all the way about the Revelation 12 sign. Something rang a bell, but everyone was into it, so I decided to go with their flow. After all, they couldn’t all be wrong!”
What an absolute classic!
My friends, the day you realise that not everyone is always right, (including me) is the day you are moving forward.
There are literally billions who are totally wrong – unsaved! There are billions out there who worship gods that are actually Satan in disguise – billions!
The spirit of error has a dangerous component. It mutates and spreads and contaminates.
The Christian world is primed now for great deception:
The failed Revelation 12 sign has primed the Christian world for the next level of deception – great delusion! Deception is rarely a one-off event, it finds an entrance and feeds and grows. If you kick it out, it comes back to see if it can get back in.
Unrepentant hearts and incorrect doctrine are a deadly, dangerous mixture.
Where all the Revelation 12 sign teachers have discredited themselves, is not so much in the giant errors they have presented as truth, but in their attempted discrediting and undermining of “Berean” truth seekers and those who would not get onto their crashing band-wagon.
In all of this, I’m not suggesting by any means that fellow teachers or watchmen of the Lord are into these pagan gods at all. But what we are dealing with are highly dangerous, invisible, but real spirits. Both truth and error are firstly spirits before anything else! (1 John 4:6) Evil spirits get in through false doctrine, or miss-used scripture.
►Today there is a huge surge in occult activity in the nations. The numbers are staggering. It is filtering through into sections of the church.
If you really want to know if any new doctrine or new interpretation of sections of the Bible is true, obviously, the Spirit of God will reveal it to you in your heart, if you have that connection through the gifts. As a double check, simply ask yourself this. What does it do to other existing, established doctrines of truth, and what does it do to Gods total, entire plan for Israel?
All the pagan, occult gods are Satan. Satan hates Israel. All the gods mentioned here and more have odd aspects that are anti-Israel, overtly or covertly.
Don’t say you haven’t been warned.
In the first paragraph of the previous edition, I said: “We are at the dawn of glory and the dawn of hell on earth.”
I say again, this is all a warning relating to things to come – soon!
These ancient gods don’t die and they are now on the doorstep again.
We are at a turning point in history. I may be ahead of things by a few months, but forewarned is forearmed! It’s easy to ignore tomorrow, because we don’t see it yet. But the wise will see and raise their armour now.
One thing you must do at this juncture in time is be selective in who you receive from. If your source is polluted, you will be affected. You must be enslaved to all truth and not truth mixed with other “truths” and error.
Don’t go on a witch hunt for demons behind every door. Don’t centre on these things. Know them and keep them as a spiritual shield, but pursue the truth.
Find and keep “few fathers” in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 4:15) Don’t have many spiritual fathers. Be selective and be discerning.
This is a composite of a few of my pictures. The background is Baines Baobabs, Botswana, mixed with sunset trees. I then superimposed the lion over some African mud-cloth, added feathers and put them all together as one.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 388: October 24th 2017.
A New Prophetic Dawn:
I have sat in the desert so many times and watched the dawn break. A beautiful, ethereal, tobacco-orange glow envelops everything. A stunning silence shouts from the four corners as the stars slowly evaporate. Now, desert insects and birds begin to awake, beautifully breaking the sublime quiet. The laugh of a hyena ending his night-prowl reverberates; the lone cry of a jackal pierces the serenity.
Luke 1:79 “The Dayspring from on high has visited us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.”
A dawn of glory, a dawn of hell on earth! The door to both is opening even now.
Job12:22-25 “He uncovers deep things out of darkness, and brings the shadow of death to light. He makes nations great and destroys them; He enlarges nations and guides them. He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth and makes them wander in the pathless wilderness. They grope in the dark without light, and He makes them stagger like a drunken man.”
Isaiah 24:20 “The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall totter like a hut; its transgression shall be heavy upon it, and it will fall and not rise again.”
In this edition, amongst a few other things, I want to contrast the call of The Prophetic Scroll and that of the world’s mass media in the days ahead.
The call of the Prophetic Scroll:
As we move into what may be the final year of the church age and the start of the tribulation period, there is so much that is about to break forth. This year, the Hebrew year 5778 may be it, or it may not. We will know as we move forward!
My call is firstly to know my Lord. It is to hear and reflect His voice and word. Secondly, it is to make Him known and relate His will, word and ways to our situation today and into the future. I have followed our Lord for over 40 years without ever backsliding.
In coming editions, I will share with you what signs to look for, what signs not to bother about, what to throw out, and how to stay safe and secure from the coming massive deceptions.
In spite of much attack and criticism, I will continue to scorn error, and write, led by our Lord with passion, truth, prophetic vision, anger and mercy, with many revelations thrown in here and there.
My aim is to see you dipped in heaven and to grow well and exactly, in our great God and Lord.
The Prophetic Scroll and the coming of the Lord:
If the next of the Feasts of the Lord to be fulfilled prophetically, is Trumpets, and if this feast marks the start of the tribulation that would mean that the rapture would take place then. The next Feast of Trumpets is on September 10th 2018.
That would mean that a lot of things need to occur beforehand. If they do not, forget about 2018. If they do, we’ve got it.
For me personally, this is the most likely scenario, as I have said numerous times. Is this the word of the Lord now for September 10th? No it is not! At this stage it is a presumed scenario. If it is going to be the real deal, you can be pretty sure that our Lord will speak and reveal these things as we get near.
Isaiah 18:3 “All inhabitants of the world and dwellers on the earth; when He lifts up a banner on the mountains, you see it; and when He blows a trumpet, you hear it.”
The verse above implies that our Lord will lift the banner for all to see and blow the trumpet for all to hear at the appropriate time.
Again, I give you my word that The Prophetic Scroll will be an appropriate “banner” and “trumpet”.
The verse below is profound indeed. It is and will be one of the main motivations of The Prophetic Scroll as we go forward into these severe times, especially relating to Israel:
Psalm 126:1-3 “When the Lord brought back the captivity of Zion, we were like those who dream...Then they (godly media) said among the nations, ‘The Lord has done great things for us, whereof we are glad.”
I and The Prophetic Scroll will stand with and for God’s word, plans, and way for Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews. This ministry will stand ferociously against those in all forms of replacement theology and anti-Semitism as things gear up for the final confrontation.
The call of the media:
They do not even know that they are puppets on a devil-string. What they believe and proclaim is the will and word of the god of the world – Satan, disguised, of course.
The entire mass-media is run by “ghost writers!” They are writers and presenters, driven by the living ghosts of Satan. They are Satan’s scribes and his will they do.
The mass-media will become more supernaturally charged with spirits of deception, presenting a fallacy and a giant distortion and lie that they are the ones who see the truth. Their new world of godless peace is a “paradise”, named hell.
You see, you can’t de-satanise the world! You must “come out of it and be separate” and “die to it”.
God’s new world of purity and holiness will be their great enemy, which they will try to destroy before it arrives. The mass-media are your worst enemy. I’m not talking about simple news coverage, but all opinion segments.
The mass-media will mismanage the lives of the masses, poisoning them with flawed hope of a great paradise. What will come is a fool’s paradise, a demon-filled, grim, gloomy, fiery “fairyland”.
The media will aim at the gullible, who will be tempted, tricked, trapped and trampled into the devil’s darkness.
The coming days will be a sensational, suspenseful tear-jerker, a spine-tingling thriller.
Personally, I’ve seen the media become more and more evil and dangerous in the last year or so.
Here are some psychological terms to bear in mind. They give a powerful understanding of the forces at work:
●Availability heuristic: If something can be recalled it must be important. It’s a mental shortcut relying on immediacy of information, especially in the media. The more times the topic has been in your face, the more important it must be. Frequency is important, not content or truth. The frequency and availability of information gives it value.
●Naive realism is the psychological term for the human tendency to believe that what they see and hear is real and true and must take precedence, because it is they who discerned it, and they are all-important. Those who disagree with them are branded irrational, biased or heretics and scoffers. Naive realism entrenches systematic error based on false, majority-consensus. They believe that they are the only really objective ones.
●Blind-spot bias: Simply, this is failure to see the impact of their own error and judgment, while seeing only their own view through tunnel vision. It often leads to other biases and problems of understanding.
●Band-wagon theology: This is the belief that if a selective group believes one thing, no matter how true or false it may be, it is right because there is a large, selective, identifiable group all going the same direction.
Please, also bear in mind the following important phrases:
Group speak, crowd psychology, confirmation bias. These are all terms for the collective thought and action of a crowd.
I have two words, for what those in the above psycho-categories believe: Hogwash, hogwash!
At the end of the day, the mass-media must proclaim their god! They must declare that there is only one god, the one whom they worship and don’t even know it. He is the god of universality, on the wide road of acceptance of everything. He is a multi-god with multi-values. He is the mixture-god of assimilation of all things.
This is the god of this world – Satan.
He is both good and evil, but he has one huge characteristic – he has no cross!
The media is the agent which releases the world from all biblical and spiritual influence. This results in a quick reversion of society to its basest evil, elements.
The great divide is widening. God’s will and plans for Israel are part of that great divide.
The final revival:
Out of a new revival in the hearts of many believers will flow revival to the masses.
Out of the dust and smoke, a new dimension of the Spirit of God will arise. The life-giving glory, majesty, splendour, and magnificence of our risen Lord will fill the temple like never before.
You, my friends, are that temple! Be prepared for a new, wonderful work of God about to break forth in the churches, in the nations, and in His people – Jew and Gentile.
Be ready to disclose and declare the saving power of our Lord through the cross of Calvary to the masses who, will awaken spiritually and come looking for salvation.
Be ready for a new wave of spiritual blockheads, birdbrains, muttonheads, lamebrains, morons, kooks and crackpots to flood the world with their garbage, at the same time.
We will see a worldwide outpouring of mass deception through Satan’s agent; his puppet-wolves in many pulpits.
The Spirit of the living God will move in this outpouring of the “early rain” and “latter rain” together. A new world revival is about to break out.
Discipled by the Internet:
Obviously this does not apply to everything on the net, but it most certainly does apply to a lot.
There are some great advantages in using the internet for ministry. But there are also many inherent flaws to be aware of. In many respects it is just like a visual telephone line, but that in itself, has problems. There is no better method of reaching far and wide with the gospel, right around the world in an instant.
Some problems are:
●It is impersonal. A digital person is just not the same as the real deal!
●With many ministries, particularly on YouTube there is no accountability.
●With many, there is no way of throwing some people out of the digital church. Some of these ministries are self-proclaimed and self-appointed. Some of them are run by people who are as spiritually ignorant as a squashed flea. Too many are inexperienced spiritually, and disqualified.
●The spread and dissemination of error, deception and delusion is streamlined and instant.
●It is a cesspool for Satan’s disguised disciples.
Great shakings to come soon:
There is power in great shaking. When you are asleep and someone comes and shakes you with shouting and yelling, you wake up fast. Well, in the same way the great shaking that is about to engulf the world, will shake many into repentance. Many sleeping Christians and churches will be shaken awake.
Of course it’s the Spirit of God that does the eye-opening, but his agent in times to come will be a great shaking of everything that can be shaken, (which excludes the kingdom of God!) Some of the shaking will be God’s doing, some will be natural events gone crazy and some pure satanic.
When things start shaking, people clamour for stability, and something solid to hold onto.
This great shaking soon to come will be far worse than the world has ever seen! It will produce fear, stress, and panic. Butterflies in the stomach will turn to vultures! Terror and horror will be the name of the nightmare!
Many, in a great shaking will harden their hearts, like true psychopaths. They will go on in non-repentance and turn away from God and His truth. Eventually they will turn on God.
Great shaking causes people to want to stand together. It causes an instant dropping of divisions. It causes unity. It causes a grasping for truth. It is a powerful cause of belief.
This will occur in supercharged form in the tribulation period, but we, the church, will see forerunners of it all, before the pre-tribulation rapture.
Here, in the following two verses we see the great shaking in the tribulation as the Second Coming approaches. Note in this verse below, we also see clearly what the Revelation 12 sign is!!
Joel 3:14-16 “Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. The sun and moon will grow dark, and the stars will diminish their brightness. The Lord will roar from Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem; the heavens and the earth will shake...”
Isaiah 13:13 “I will shake the heavens and the earth which will move out of its place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts and in the day of His fierce anger.”
There is little doubt that we will see numerous wars intensify and new ones break out very soon. But the big sign is Israel. There has been little of prophetic importance coming from Israel in the last few months or so. I expect this to change dramatically.
Israel will be thrust onto centre-stage very soon. We are not to jump the gun. We are to wait and watch. I have seen lately that some Christians can’t wait and are going to fortune tellers, clairvoyants and the like to find the time of His coming! (Much more on that in the next edition.)
Imagine the shock of one day arriving in heaven and seeing that your problem was that you were living under a curse and that it’s cure, the cross, was right in front of you all the time. Imagine the shock of seeing the spectacular rewards that were laid up for you – for eternity, disappear in a puff of smoke! All because you ran to the cursed occult!
Can you be saved if you go to a fortune-teller? Perhaps yes, but once you do, you have stepped onto a slippery slope that will curse you even as you try to break free from its python-grip!
Psalm 130:6 “My soul waits for the Lord, more than those who watch for the morning – I say more than those who watch for the morning.”
Frustration is a huge secret problem for most Christians. It causes people to jump the gun. Anger, resentment, rejection and many addictions come from frustration.
A friend of mine, known as the “Lion Whisperer”, has numerous lions and other wild animals on his game reserve not far from where I live. Someone did a documentary on him some years ago entitled “Dangerous Companions.”
Many believers have far too many dangerous companions in their lives, who will do them a lot more harm than a lion bite!
It’s very important to be selective in whom you ‘receive from' in these days! Be discerning my friends.
One classical “dangerous companion” you must not have as any part of your life or Christian experience in any form, is anything to do with Nibiru.
There are many shocking, largely unknown things about this great deception, still to be revealed. I will be sharing some amazing things on this front soon. (Next edition, God willing.)
Truth will walk with error for a while and try to persuade it, but at the end of the day truth will crush and annihilate all error. Keep truth in your heart and expel all error – now.
The eyes of our Lord:
Our Lord will soon look deeply into your eyes – face to face, with His all seeing and all knowing eyes. If you look into His eyes, you will see a furnace of golden flaming fire. His eyes will see you through the blood-stains of Calvary’s cross.
His voice will sound like many refreshing waterfalls, but emerging from the water will be a sharp two-edged sword. His countenance will glow like the sun shining in its strength. His feet are of bronze – judgement! His eyes look into your eyes and He sees His blood in you and He proclaims you perfect, holy and pure – forever!
All you can do is fall at His feet as dead!
Our Messiah is God in the flesh. He is the very essence, origin and definition of wisdom. He is love, mercy and forgiveness personified, yet a severe judge. He is distant, yet very close. He is transcendent, everywhere, yet far away.
He destroys wonderfully, and builds up magnificently, with a true, pure plum-line. He is all power. He is full of light, insight and ingenuity.
He is the essence of eternal beauty, glory, majesty and desire. One glance from His fire-filled eyes and you are healed, new and full of life. His great spiritual beauty attracts, inspires, and causes desire and emulation.
Those eyes will look into the eyes of every unbeliever and all who rejected Him. Those eyes will look, with unquenchable fire into the proud eyes of all – the fully unforgiven, who would not fall down before Him. What eternal terror! If He does not see His own blood in you, you are none of His – forever doomed!
Revelation 20:15 “Anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.”
Your name written in His Book is God’s hell-fire extinguisher!
Revelation 21:5 “He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new...”
There will be no more curse, no more sickness, no more sorrow, no more pain, no more tears and no more death – for those that are His.
Do you see the sin-burning fire in His eyes? Does He see your eyes, bloodshot, with His blood? Do you hear His roaring, loving voice? Do you see His bronze, judgement-feet thundering towards you to proclaim you innocent?
Revelation 22:4 “They shall see His face, and His name shall be upon their foreheads.”
I took this picture in the beautiful Namib Desert – over 1000kms of spectacular landscapes. The Namib Desert with its Skeleton Coast, the Kaokerland Desert with rare big-foot desert elephants, the Kalahari Desert with its huge black-maned lions, the Makgadigadi Desert of Botswana, the Great Karoo and Namaqualand Desert of South Africa – these are some of my favourite places. (In the days when I was still mobile!)
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 387: October 17th 2017.
Prophecy is “more-sure”:
2 Peter 1:19-20 “We have the prophetic word made more-sure, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts. Know that no prophecy of scripture is of any private interpretation...”
“More-sure” than what, is the question. Prophecy is more-sure than the things mentioned in the previous verses which are; seeing with your own eyes and hearing something with your ears! So in a sense Bible prophecy is more real and sure than reality!
Prophecy shines in a dark place says the verse above. The world today is increasingly dark! Much of the church is dark too. Even many so-called prophets are in fact prophets of darkness!
If you think you can live successfully in a dark place without light, you are a fool.
In this edition, I will look at the vital issue of knowing prophecy and its veracity, especially after the great harm done to it in the eyes of many, by the recent deceptive Revelation 12 sign interpretation.
This edition is an attempt to uplift Bible prophecy again to its rightful, elevated, exalted, holy, pure, more-sure, position of respectability.
The great error and the big lesson:
Before we go on, we need to identify the source of the problem. Bible prophecy has been dealt an enormous blow by many teachers of the recent Revelation 12 sign, its interpretation, and the side issues like the coming of Nibiru.
Every single point, presumption, and conclusion was wrong – totally wrong. Almost every verse used was used wrongly, out of context, dispensation or interpretive application. There were a million warning lights flashing.
But rather than break each one of these down and look at where they were so massively wrong, there is one very big, all inclusive, overall problem to consider, which you would do well to remember and apply in the future, because this entire issue is far from over.
This lesson is desperately needed in these prophetic times.
The big issue is that all of the Revelation 12 signers and their promoters – without exception had one big problem. It was all dead-letter. There was no Spirit of God in any of it. (2 Corinthians 3:6)
If you have an anointing of the Spirit of God upon you and your work, it will manifest as truth. (John 16:13) The Spirit of God will not “anoint” error. He never, operates through manipulation either.
The failed Revelation 12 sign interpretation produced confusion, discouragement, and suspicion about the veracity of the Bible. It damaged Bible prophecy itself in the eyes of many. It made yet another mockery of prophecy in the world’s eyes.
It exalted individuals (before the “so-called” rapture date). It placed some of the error-mongers in mocking judgement on all who rejected their work and claims. It elevated error, and has entrenched the un-repentant teachers in error. They are now in danger of being used by the spirit of error again.
If it were all of God, their major claim, presented with the worst manipulation I have ever seen, (the rapture) would have taken place. If it were of God, its fruits would not have been those mentioned above.
The great error is speaking and presuming things when God is not speaking. Many of the sign teachers were (and still are) looking for self-affirmation. They were trying to get God to issue a sworn statement, a stamp of approval, a green light to ratify His red light!
Sometimes God is saying – “wait!” Personally, I don’t like that, but if it’s God’s voice, we wait.
If you speak His word when He is not speaking, then, you are speaking your own word. We cannot order God around and make Him perform for us! He is not our sponsor!
The signers looked for confirmation from others on the same band-wagon of private interpretation.
►“Belief-bias” is a psychological term, describing one who uses beliefs of an invalid assumption to influence others. It was operating in overdrive! We saw the conditioning of the Christian masses with much manipulation. There was belief-bias, group-bias, and crowd psychology, all at work - all wrong!
Another time I’ll deal with some other powerful and very relevant psychological terms, which few are aware of, like: Availability heuristics, naive realism, Blind-spot bias and more.
Many, like myself, got verbally assaulted over and over for not being on their wrong-wagon.
Of course none of them thought they were wrong. But they were totally wrong, in that God was not in it at all. Yes, God can and will still use things that cause great damage and harm. He can and will turn them around for His ultimate good, but that does not justify error in the first place.
You can say that people repented before the sign. Maybe so, but where are they now, after the sign failure?
God never anoints error or false prophecy, though Satan does. (Isaiah 1:14-15)
When going off-track there should always be a little bell ringing in your heart, or red light of some sort. After all, it is God Himself who is in your heart.
More on Nibiru:
You may have noticed that the non-existing planet Nibiru, was closely associated with, and part of the Revelation 12 interpretation, identified as the “dragon.”
I’ve written on it a lot, so I won’t spend much time on it now, but consider this:
Nibiru is supposedly a planet travelling through the universe about to strike the earth. Numerous failed dates have come and gone. Only the very ignorant or totally deceived could believe any of it.
But this god- mythology is curse-producing, as is much of Babylonian origin.
Nibiru is the god of the constellations and planetary alignments. He would “shepherd the stars like sheep.” He was the shepherd-teacher of these planetary alignments. Nibiru was also Marduk the Babylonian sun-god. Nibiru was also known as the “great star” and the “heavenly sign.”
Some Sumerian texts refer to Nibiru as the planet Jupiter.
Marduk (Nibiru) would shepherd the stars to a position called the Nibiru point (tablet 5 of Babylonia). This was the point fixed in the constellations, which produced great signs.
I will leave you to your assessments.
(I have just heard this morning that a well-known Bible-code searcher has found Nibiru to hit the earth this Hebrew year 5778. He also found it for last year and the year before!!!) Ignore them!
On the brink of supernatural delusions:
2 Timothy 3:13 “Evil men and imposters will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.”
We are now on the doorstep of the tribulation period, which will be accompanied with huge supernatural miracles like never before. Some will be of God, and other great delusions, will be of the devil.
We will see forerunners of these things now before the tribulation begins.
All around us are: Horoscopes, fortune tellers, clairvoyants, and various false prophets of other religions. Do not mess with or go near them. You will get spiritually trapped like the prey of a python.
Acts 16:16-18 “A certain slave girl possessed with a spirit of divination (Lit=python) brought her master much profit by fortune telling, She said of Paul, ‘these men are servants of God most high, who proclaim the way of salvation. Then Paul, greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, ‘I command you in the name of Yeshua the Messiah, to come out of her.’”
Note that a servant of Satan acknowledged that these were men of the living God.
Note also that this slave girl was possessed by a certain type of evil spirit. The original word used is “python”. This is a spirit that captures a person tightly in deception and strangles the life of God out of them! The word also means a ventriloquist, or one who speaks from a different, secret, hidden source!
What a perfect example and description of the deceptions of Satan!
Have you been bamboozled by nice sounding words, when the origin is Satan?
These things are all going to intensify greatly and quickly in the days ahead. They will get “worse and worse.”
If you have been entertaining any of these occult things, you need to break free, repent and be delivered. You must then forsake them completely, including all physical contact-items, books, music and the like – burn them all.
In the days of the miracles of Egypt, two of Pharaoh’s magicians called down fire from above. They withstood Moses.
They are named as Jannes and Jambres in 2 Timothy 3:9.
●The name Jannes means: Gift from God
●The name Jambres means: Rebellion, bitterness and poverty.
My friends please be aware that Satan is a deceiver in camouflage. He comes as an “angel of light.”
Many supernatural things will shortly occur and appear to be a “gift from God.” They will catch the gullible!
You may think that this or that is a “gift of God” when in reality it is rooted in rebellion and produces bitterness and poverty – as all the works of Satan eventually do!
Any “gift of God” originating in rebellion or the occult will be like a python to you. It will be the voice of the great ventriloquist – Satan. He will bring you the gift of bitterness and poverty – all the life squeezed out!
Satan wants you as his legitimate servant and property. If you fall for these things you are giving him your permission.
Here’s another prime example of Paul dealing with an attack on the church:
Acts 13:8-12 (Shortened to main points) “Elymas the sorcerer withstood them, seeking to turn them away from the faith. Then Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit said, ‘O full of all deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord? Now, the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you shall be blind, not seeing the sun for a time. And immediately a dark mist fell on him and he went around seeking someone to lead him by the hand. Then they believed...”
Servants of Satan, which include false prophets, sought to keep believers from the truth! Your truth must not be moveable!
The deadly motivation of the spirits of error is to “draw away disciples after themselves.”
Bible prophecy killers:
Bible prophecy can’t be killed or changed, but it can be damaged in the eyes of some people. The unsaved often respond to fulfilled Bible prophecy in a powerful way. It offers great security to the saved. Satan knows it is a powerful tool of evangelism and the veracity of God’s word.
He tries to water it down, change it, nullify it, and discredit it. He will never be successful ultimately, but he can and does throw a spanner in the works, albeit temporarily.
Bible prophecy gets damaged when:
●Those with no fear of the Lord delve into it. ●Those whose teachings and claims have a pattern of non-fulfilment - it doesn’t come to pass. ●Those not filled with the Spirit of God and the gifts. ●Manipulation, ulterior motives, or self righteousness damages prophecy. ●Those, who are biblically ignorant, or unstudied, always mess up prophecy. ●Those pursuing preconceived agendas. ●The scripturally unbalanced – those with a hobby horse. ●Those with no or little interest in Israel and God’s plans for the Jews always get it wrong. ●Those who ignore dispensations are prophetically blind.
It’s a fearful thing to stand for our Lord and deliver His word. It’s a frightening thing to know of the consequences for missing it, just in the slightest, when speaking for God.
“Teachers will incur a stricter judgement than others.” (James 3:1)
Correct interpretation of God’s word is essential, but application of it prophetically, is the scary thing. You had better be right, not just for the sake of the people you will influence and impact, but because you are on God’s chopping block yourself!
Thankfully the Lord has given us that “still small voice” to lead us, to guide, and confirm.
Bible prophecy rightly divided, received and applied is a powerful revelatory indicator of numerous critical things in these days.
Prophecy is God’s ●barometer, ●measuring gauge, ● spiritual thermometer, ●light meter, ●clock, ●speedometer, ●seismometer, ●tension meter, ● microscope, ● telescope, ●stethoscope and ●radar.
Prophecy is God’s sustenance for you, your shield, shelter and bastion of protection, your weapons of war, your armoury, your secure protection, your hoodwink shield!
Evil end-time dangers:
Prophecy is a light that shines in a dark place. The darkness around and about us today is spiritually charged. It is demon-dark and is about to get double demon-dark!
Sin advances and gets worse, but a Satan brings in a new morality with it, and simply puts on a new face, and through gradualisation makes terrible sin, acceptable and respectable.
The only hope for the world is judgement unto destruction, and with a new world of glory arising out of the ashes.
The only hope for the church is for “judgement to begin in the house of God” and then a new fresh outpouring of the Spirit of God, to take us forward.
Bear in mind, that in times past when God judged His people, He always started with the prophets and those who spoke for God. If their interpretations were wrong, the people suffered.
Here are a few shocking examples:
Ezekiel 22:25-28 “The conspiracy of her prophets in her midst is like a roaring lion tearing the prey; they have devoured the people...they have not distinguished between the holy and the unholy or the unclean and the clean...the prophets covered these with untempered mortar, seeing false visions and divining lies, saying ‘Thus says the Lord, when the Lord has not spoken.’”
“Untempered mortar” is cement wrongly mixed. It is too watery and won’t stand the test of time.
Deuteronomy 18:20 “The prophet who presumes to speak a word in My name, which I have not commanded him to speak, shall die.” (In today’s terms that would mean reject him.)
Deuteronomy 18:22 “When a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if it does not come to pass; the prophet has spoken presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him (consider his words).”
Jeremiah 23:16 “Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophecy to you. They make you worthless; they speak a vision of their own heart, not from the Lord.”
Jeremiah 23: 21-22 “I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran. I have not spoken to them. If they had stood in My counsel and caused My people to hear My words, then they would have turned from their evil way.”
Jeremiah 23:25 “I have heard what the prophets have said who prophesy lies in My name saying, ‘I have dreamed, I have dreamed!’ How long will this be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies? They are prophets of deceit, of their own heart.”
These few verses above are a shocking indictment on false prophets, teachers, watchmen and those in ministry. For me personally, they send shudders down my spine! Am I scared of these verses? You bet!
The deceptive force of YouTube and some other internet ministries is that they create a false authority. “I heard it on the news or saw it in the paper, it must be true.” Rubbish, rubbish, rubbish!
These ministries can gain instant acceptance and so-called authority, without the anointing or call of God.
A great sign of who to trust and who to avoid in ministry: The person who will not repent when in error – run from them.
But don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater! The internet is also great for ministry. Be selective.
Righting the wrong:
We want it all and we want it now. That’s the way of the modern digital, pop-up world. But it takes some guts to wait. That does not mean waiting passively, doing nothing, but it does mean not jumping ahead of God.
“Lay hands on no one suddenly,” says the Bible. This actually means, be careful who you release into ministry. It also refers to a transfer of spirits. Be careful who you allow to touch you spiritually. There are far too many who should not be in ministry.
God holds the church accountable, to a degree, for the nation and in fact for the world.
I believe that we are now on the verge of moving into new exciting times. Prophetically, we are on the cliff-edge, and on the rapture-rocket step.
Many of the watchmen and Revelation 12 sign teachers will repent. I just wish they would hurry up. Then we can put all this behind us and go forward as though there was never a problem in the first place. There is too much at stake, and too many lives in the valley of decision.
Hearing God’s voice:
In these days, especially in dealing with all things of a prophetic nature, we desperately need to hear the voice of our Lord, by His Spirit in our hearts.
Jeremiah 7:23 “Hear and obey My voice then I will be your God and you shall be My people...it will be well with you.”
John 10:3-5 “His sheep hear His voice. He calls His own sheep by name...His sheep follow Him, for they know His voice... They will not follow a stranger’s voice.”
It is impossible to follow the Lord unless you hear His voice. Voices are unique. They are like fingerprints. Be careful of, and learn the voice of the evil ventriloquist, so that you can’t be hoodwinked!
The Bible uses this phrase a few times, “If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.” This is speaking of a hearing heart, which is a believing heart. It is conditional!
Psalm 95:7-11 “...Today, if you will hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, as in the day of trial in the wilderness...They do not know My ways’, so I swore in My wrath, they will not enter My rest.”
God’s voice obviously agrees with God’s word – all of it. Today many are in a sea of biblical ignorance and have no idea what the Bible says. Others have given themselves over to so-called men of God as their primary source.
The Bible itself is the word of God, but it is also “dead letter.” It needs the now, active, alive, Spirit of God to transform it into revelation.
Colossians 3:15-16 (Amp.) “Let the peace (soul -harmony) of Messiah rule and act as an umpire in your hearts, deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds...and be thankful, giving praise to God.”
I took this picture at Savuti, Botswana. – Elephant conference!
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
