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. Please search the scriptures to “see if these be true.” This is a "watchman" and Bible prophecy teaching website.

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!
Edition 386: October 10th 2017.
Pharaoh of Nineveh:
World, be warned, be warned!
The title of this edition may surprise you, but read on my friends!
Now that we’re well into the Hebrew year 5778, which will end in September 2018, and now that we have just witnessed one of the greatest worldwide deceptions, which spread faster than wildfire, - the Revelation 12 sign, and its prophetically meaningless connection to an astronomic alignment... we can go forward.
We are on the verge of great revival. The former and latter rain will come flooding in together. Masses will be saved like never before in the months ahead. The Spirit of the living God will do it.
But, much of this end-time revival will come on the back of great, severe shaking. The church will shaken to its roots as well!
●Our Lord is coming soon. ●So is Israel’s salvation. ●So is the antichrist!
In preparation for the arrival of the antichrist, his spirit is at work preparing people for great delusions and deceptions, some of the greatest ever, including great signs. Again, the church will not be excluded from the forerunners. (2 Thessalonians 2:11-12)
The antichrist spirit is preparing now to block the glorious, soon coming salvation of Israel. He is preparing to attack and destroy Israel. He will attack the Jews both physically and with spiritual deceptions.
One of his big attacks will be in the obscuring of, and attempted removal of Yeshua from the Jews.
Satan must put out the fire of God’s Spirit in all forms of revival so that he can advance. He must remove your weapons of intelligence (prophecy), discernment, knowledge, wisdom and your armour, as well as your weapons of war. He must remove your spiritual authority.
A very powerful tool of evangelism is the prophetic word. It is perhaps the most powerful tool today. But more than that, Bible prophecy also gives us spiritual intelligence, insight, stability, and an anchor of hope.
The recent Revelation 12 sign debacle and its worldwide deception, was a massive blow to the veracity of prophecy in the eyes of many people. The tool of prophecy has been weakened.
People, especially the unsaved who were ripe for salvation, will now always be suspicious of prophecy, and as a result are left blinded to its many vital, essential benefits. Many people will now be left defenceless in this highly spiritually charged world.
To go to war unprepared and in a cloud of ignorance is asking for trouble. Many churches will fall. Many believers will be left shipwrecked. Thankfully, a huge number will endure and win through, bringing masses of new believers with them in these exciting days.
Some powerful end-time attacks to be aware of:
●False watchmen cry wolf when there is no wolf, and are silent when the wolf prowls.
●False watchmen have a pattern of being wrong.
●False watchmen have clouded vision relating to Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews. They will not see or warn of imminent dangers Israel faces relating to the breaking of God’s eternal covenant. They will not watch or see anything relating to the dividing of Israel and the city.
●False watchmen will not see anything relating to the coming of the antichrist and how he will arrive on the stage. (The church will see the forerunners of that, but not the actual event.)
●False watchmen will spend their time pursuing meaningless signs, avoiding the real signs. A good example was in all the predictions and shouting about a prophetically meaningless eclipse, and YouTube videos by many “authorities” on the prophetically meaningless UN peace celebrations on the 23rd September. This occurs every year on Rosh Hashanah and has no relation to anything official, never mind a seven-year peace treaty. How many were caught out by that hogwash?
●Too many so-called watchmen can’t see because they have ulterior motives! What never ceases to amaze me is that most of these false watchmen never apologise for their long string of failed watches!
●The Bible says that prophecy is a light that shines in a dark place. Satan will continue to enshrine prophecy in darkness and confusion to the best of his ability.
●Replacement theology is currently morphing into a new animal...a satanic obstruction of God’s plans.
●The Jezebel spirit today is all around us. It operates through women in the church, but is not restricted to women at all. This is a usurping spirit that attempts to bring down church leadership and to bring down the work of God and nullify the authority of the believer in God’s structures.
●The antichrist may well arise on YouTube. Before he is fully revealed, he may well have a YouTube ministry! Beware of the fast growing dangers of many YouTube and other internet media ministries. The antichrist arises in association with the church! (1John 2:19)
●Curses in operation in the church: Today this is a fast growing problem of which many are unaware. Many Christians operate under the cloud of a curse. Believe it or not, it comes by their choosing! The Bible says that we are to “choose blessing or cursing.” (Deuteronomy 30:19) There are many things that automatically bring a curse if you venture into them. Anything to do with Nibiru will leave you under a curse. Please see Edition 375, “The curse of Nibiru” HERE
●Be careful of those who are obsessed! Obsession is connected with addiction, enslavement, preoccupation, delusion, pride, neurosis and the like. It controls you like a monkey on the back. It gives you tunnel vision, blinding you to other areas of doctrine. We need to be well balanced in the entirety of the doctrine of Messiah. (Hebrews 6:1-2) By the way, all doctrinal error is sin.
●There are many more!
Fruits of truth and error:
There are many signs and fruits of truth. You will be in peace about it. Perhaps the greatest sign that you are on the right track is the inner witness and the peace it brings. With it comes a deep inner rest. You don’t have to run around trying to prove yourself right and others wrong.
Another powerful way of knowing that you are on the right track lies in the confirmation of scripture rightly divided and applied. It will not violate other verses, requiring doctrinal changes. They will all fit together like a jigsaw puzzle.
Fruits of error are the opposite of the above. There is no inner witness except from your own mind. There is no inner peace and rest. Confusion abounds where error is at work.
Now let’s have a look at a great mystery and a powerful end-time revelation. This relates to the whole world, the church and to Israel:
Pharaoh of Egypt, Pharaoh of Nineveh:
►Please also see Edition 382: “The great Jonah sign for today.”
There are numerous, very important connections in these things I’m going to share with you.
●Let’s go to Egypt.
Pharaoh, the king of Egypt had many dealings with the living God. Moses, Joseph and the incredible judgements of God for his enslavement of the Jews were just a few.
The word “Egypt” means: “The high fortress or castle”.
The word “Pharaoh” means: “The son of Ra (sun)”.
It’s common belief that Egypt in the Bible is a type of the world. But it’s more than that. It’s a type of captivity and enslavement in the world. The “high fortress or castle” is very much a type of imprisonment, but also of the pride of life in the world.
The children of Israel were in captivity and enslavement in Egypt – the high castle!
We see that “Pharaoh” continues this theme. His name represents the worship of the illegitimate sun god. Pharaoh, in fact is a clear type of Satan himself. It is Satan who is the “god of this world.”
●Now let’s go over to Nineveh:
The name “Nineveh” originates from: “The abode of Ninus”. He was a Babylonian god, the son of Baal. The name “Baal” means Lord or a god. So “Nineveh” actually means “the son of a god”. Ninus also means: “To be in agreement with.” So we see “agreement with this son of god,” in the name.
Do you see the parallels with Egypt and Pharaoh?
Here’s a shocker: You may be surprised to learn that the god Ninus, was also the god of the Akkadian god-people who settled in Assyria after descending from the mythical planet Nibiru when it visited the earth long ago. (According to Babylonian history)
So now we see that Nineveh is connected by name to the cursed, mythical, non-existing – Nibiru! Of course, you should know by now, that the future “coming” of Nibiru is also connected with the common interpretation of the Revelation 12 sign.
Jonah is the universal prophet. He was sent to the Gentiles to call them to repentance for their sin and particularly for their sins of resisting and coming against Israel.
Nineveh becomes a type of the world, just as Egypt is.
●God sent Pharaoh of Egypt, Joseph, a powerful type of Messiah.
●The king of Nineveh was sent Jonah, a powerful type of Messiah.
Now, a bit of Jewish history:
We all know the story: Moses cried out to Pharaoh on behalf of God:
Exodus 9:13 “Let My people go that they may serve Me.”
Pharaoh agreed, and let them go, but then changed his mind and with his armies, pursued the children of Israel to kill them after he had let them go.
It is generally believed that Pharaoh himself was killed as the Red Sea closed in on the Egyptians. The verse says that Pharaoh’s army “followed them into the sea until no one remained”. But Hebrew scholars write the verse this way:
“They followed them into the sea until only one remained.”
So who was the one who was not killed in the Red Sea? Again the Hebrew scholars believe it was Pharaoh! They refer to this verse below:
Exodus 9:16 “Indeed for this purpose I have raised you (Pharaoh) up.”
So, if the Jew-hater, Pharaoh, was spared, why, and where did he go?
Now we come to something very interesting indeed. There is no verse saying this exactly, but again the Hebrew Rabbis believe that Pharaoh went off to the city of Nineveh, where he became king of Nineveh. He gave himself a new name there. (There are some ancient Hebrew records of this.)
The king of Nineveh divided the land of Israel, north from south. Was this Pharaoh? If so, as the Rabbis believe then he was also the same king to whom Jonah went, commanding him to repent.
That would explain the reluctance and anger of Jonah for having to speak to this Jew-hater and command him to repent. They say that Jonah, at that stage, knew that the king of Nineveh was actually, none other than Pharaoh of Egypt!
●The drama continues to unfold:
Pharaoh of Egypt repented when confronted by Moses and did let the Jews go, although it didn’t last. Pharaoh of Nineveh also repented at the command of Jonah, but that also didn’t last and Nineveh was eventually destroyed.
Pharaoh of Egypt had an encounter with Messiah, in the person of Joseph. Pharaoh of Nineveh had an encounter with Messiah in the person of Jonah, a powerful type of our crucified and risen Lord.
Egypt and Nineveh are types of the world. In both of these cities, representing the world today, we see satanic hatred for Israel, the enslavement of the Jews, and the dividing of the land.
Today some believe that the USA and Russia, Trump and Putin, are seen in these cities, people and their associations. That may be so, but the main point is that they represent the world and its satanic hatred for God’s people and His plans for the close of the age.
Applications for today:
The spirit of Pharaoh in the believer’s life is a relentless, pursuing and detracting spirit. He is a captivating spirit. He hardens the heart and feigns repentance. He turns on the Jews.
Pharaoh represents half-baked repentance and the ignoring of God’s complete word.
Today the world (Egypt) is hell bent on destroying and undermining God’s call and plan for the Jews, or at least to hand them over to Islam.
My friends, salvation went to Egypt in the form of Joseph, but they did not see it. They were blinded by their anti-Semitic hatred. Salvation went to Nineveh in the form of Jonah and they did not see it. They too were blinded by their anti-Semitism.
Salvation is of, and from the Jews. (John 4:22) Salvation went to Israel and they did not see Him, but they soon will and that’s the huge, big, wonderful issue!
Satan is trying again to hide Yeshua from the Jews.
Will you stand for Israel and the Jews as their salvation nears in the person of – Yeshua Hamashiach? He is knocking on the doors of Jerusalem now. Will you help them open the door?
Yeshua the King of Kings, Lord of lords, the One and only true, living God! Say no more!
The great, ancient key to unlock your own great success with our Lord lies in your treatment of Israel. It is the “key of David.” (Revelation 3:7, Isaiah 22:22) It is the key to great blessing here and in the life to come.
The ancient key was used by Moses to unlock the call of God for the Jews: “Let my people go.”
“Let them go” today means to get rid of obstacles in their way and in their march to salvation. The ancient key still unlocks the same doors with God.
The lesson is this: Pharaoh, a type of Satan, who is the god of this world, is arising with great hatred for God’s plans. He is preparing to walk onto his doomed, bedevilled, bewitched, and cursed stage.
He is already, subtly using many Christians; some with YouTube ministries, to remove and hide Yeshua as the agent for salvation from the Jews.
The actions of Pharaoh of Egypt and Pharaoh of Nineveh both represent the actions of the coming antichrist, ending in disaster. This entire, great drama is about to burst forth onto the world stage. This is the lull before the storm now.
A great ancient key is found in Israel’s entire existence and purpose, prophesied in the Bible. The key is the veracity and truth of all Bible prophecy, in spite of the damage done to it. The key is that Bible prophecy has been exactly fulfilled and will continue to be so.
My friends, you can safely trust Bible prophecy with your life!
Tragically, prophecy also reveals that Israel’s new found salvation is coming on the wings of a terrifying, evil bird with a great screeching voice!
“We have heard a voice of trembling and not of peace.” (Jeremiah 30:5)
Romans 9:17 “The scripture says to Pharaoh, ‘Even for this same purpose, I have raised you up, that I might show My power in you, and that My name might be declared in all the earth.’”
Imagine that! God is using Pharaoh to declare His name in all the earth in these days!
True, deep repentance brings victory, with many other fruits, inner peace being one of them. A lack of repentance compounds your problem and coming judgement. The way of the world is enticing and will swallow up millions of Christians, even in coming months!
The way of the world, especially presented by the mass media, will soon make it very reasonable and fashionable to come against God’s plans for Israel. Hell awaits the clever, bespectacled mass-media.
Flee everything that has any hint of obstructing God’s plans for Israel. Repent now and be free to move forward with new eyes, fresh vision and God’s supernatural power being poured out.
Our Lord is a God of second chances, and in fact many more! What a God we serve!
►I give you my word that I, and The Prophetic Scroll will always stand for God’s choice and plan for Israel. I will also stand against the many that will be on the other side.
I took the background picture of the giant baobab tree in the Limpopo region. I took the fish eagle picture in the Okavango, Botswana and the flowers in Namaqualand.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 385: October 3rd 2017.
The great revelation of you!
Why are you hiding? “God hid me away. It’s a mystery!”
But why are you hiding with your pet puppy, cat, budgie and duck? Because God also hid them away, and that’s a mystery too!
“I thought this was a wonderful world, so why is everyone hiding, and from whom. Is it a wonderful world, or what?”
What a wonderful world! Trees of green, red roses and red setters too, skies of blue, clouds of white. The bright blessed day...all about to go bang in destruction!
“The earth declares the glory of God”. But it is fallen. It has the curse of Adam’s sin in its veins. It and you are far from what you will soon be! The real you and the real world are very soon to be revealed and brought out of hiding by our great God, for the entire universe to see!
So, why are you hiding and why are all the animals hiding and “groaning”? We are all hiding from the devil, his demons, fallen angels and all residents of hell. No, not in our present form, it is our future form that is hiding.
God is also hiding the great mystery of His kingdom. It too, is fully to be revealed soon.
Hidden away, soon to be revealed:
The complete revelation of God includes the revelation of you, the revelation of nature, the revelation of the earth, the revelation of the heavens and the revelation of a true new-world order.
Only those with spiritual eyes and insight can see the kingdom of God beyond its present, masked veil, waiting in anticipation!
As a member of God’s glorious kingdom, you will be truly out of this world, marvellous and magnificent, exalted and elevated forever.
The word “reveal” is Strong’s G602 “Apokalypsis” Meaning: Revelation, manifestation, disclosing, or revealing that which was previously hidden, unknown or making something visible to all.
Colossians 2:3 “The mystery of God...in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”
1 John 3:2 “Beloved, now we are the children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.”
My friends, right now, you are a child of the living God, if saved. But when your salvation is complete, you will be an eternal sign to the universe of God’s glory. You will be a sign to the spirits of ages past and present history. You will soon be revealed in full, final victory.
The great revelation of you:
1 Corinthians 15:40-49 “There are also celestial bodies and terrestrial bodies, but the glory of the celestial is one and glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun and another glory of the moon and another glory of the stars, for one star differs from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown in corruption and raised in incorruption...it is sown a natural body and raised a spiritual body...We have borne the image of the man of dust (Adam), we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.”
We will all be equal in terms of foundation, but what each person has built (or not) on his foundation will be as different as the brightness of the stars – forever.
Revelation 21:4 “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death...”
As we step into eternity, we will be shocked beyond measure – positively shocked, at what God has laid up for us and what and who we will actually be.
A new name and a new face!
Do you wonder what you will look like in eternity? You will only know that when you look into the mirror God holds up in front of you, with spiritual eyes.
2 Corinthians 3:18 “We with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, by the Spirit of the Lord.”
Our future body will be made of glory! Now we live in a “body of humiliation”.
Many people have three names. The name their parents gave them. A name their friends give them (nickname) and we will have an eternal name, a new name given us by our Lord.
Revelation 2:17 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give some of the hidden manna to eat and I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.”
We cannot be measured by the world, but only by the word. We are in effect measured by our other-worldliness, our kingdom likeness.
What is your life? What have you done with it in biblical terms? What are your memories made of? Is today a reflection of memories of growth in our Lord?
Imagine the great shock of one day waking up in eternity to discover that your whole life was a waste of time! It was fully worldly ways, controlled by demon puppeteers pulling invisible strings.
Are your tears wasted tears in the desert of futility? Are they the dew of heaven, giving sustenance to others? Will they be tears of future torment and terrible regret, or tears of future joy and glory?
Are you a passing shadow in the shifting sands? Are you an object of eternal beauty, being fashioned with the invisible tools of God, into His glorious workmanship?
Ephesians 2:10 “We are His workmanship created in Him for good works...”
The word “workmanship” in the verse above is the word “Poiema,” Strong’s G4161, Meaning: “A poem, a poetic masterpiece”!
Did you know that you are a poetic masterpiece of the greatest Master-Poet ever?
The poem which is our lives is still being written by our Lord, but it’s just about complete, ready to be broadcast to the universe.
Have you had a good life with many wonderful memories? Has you life been hard with much suffering in and for the Lord?
►Romans 8:18 “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared to the glory that shall be revealed in us...”
►2 Corinthians 4:17 “For our light affliction, which is just for a moment, is working for us, a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.”
►1 Corinthians 2:9 “Eye has not seen nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those that love Him”
Did you meet God’s requirements and conditions?
How did you represent God in you, and His call on your life?
Will your pride and arrogance eat away at what would have been your reward? Teachers, will your deceptive errors that wrecked the spiritual lives of many now wreck your eternal reward-state?
The path to victory is the path of repentance, humility before God, and the fear of the Lord. If you truly have the Spirit of God in your heart, you are on a wonderful journey. You may go through many hard times, but you will endure and it will be more worth it than you can imagine.
God will never leave you in one place, unless you leave Him. He is always moving us forward.
If you have been wrongly treated in your life as a believer, good times are coming.
The great vindication of you and for you you is coming. You will be eternally exonerated and justified. The devil's world will want to continually accuse you of many sins you commited, but as you step into eternity, they will all suddenly evaporate into a puff of smoke. You can't pin down dematerialized smoke!
Your reward and recompense is coming.
The revelation of the natural world:
Romans 8:19-22 “For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. The creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself will also be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. We know that the whole of creation groans and labours with pangs together until now.”
The term “earnest expectation” in the verse above means “straining forward in an outstretched manner.”
My friends, natural creation is “leaning forward, stretching and straining” towards you and me in expectation of the glory to come!! The animals are groaning now, calling your name, anticipating your glorious liberty. You will be their new, holy, caretakers.
Revelation 22:3 “And there shall be no more curse.”
Isaiah 32:16-17 “Then justice will dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness will remain in the fruitful field. The work of righteousness will be peace and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever.”
Isaiah 55:13 “Instead of thorns shall come up the cypress tree, and instead of the brier, shall come up the myrtle tree; and it shall be to the Lord for a name and for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”
Isaiah 65:25 “The wolf and the lamb will feed together, the lion shall eat straw like an ox. Dust shall be the serpent’s food. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain.”
►Hosea 2:18 “In that day I will make a covenant for them (natural world) with the beasts of the field and the birds of the air, and with the creeping things of the ground...”
►Job 5:23-24 “For You shall have a covenant with the stones of the field and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with you. You shall know that your tent is in peace.”
What wonderful verses these are above! They speak of great wonderful things. Personally, I’m a tree-hugger, an animal-lover, a wildlife freak, a conservationist – so all of these give me dreams of real wild fantasy about to come true.
But did you spot the real big deal? Have a look again at Hosea and Job, above. Note that God will make a new covenant with all natural creation. God’s new covenant with nature will even include stones! That will be an eternal covenant!
God is green:
Job 39:8 “The range of the mountains is His pasture and He searches after every green thing.”
Due to the savagery and selfishness of modern man in many respects, the natural environment is wrecked.
Jeremiah 9:10 “I will take up a weeping and a wailing for the mountains, and for the habitation of the wilderness, a lamentation...both the birds of the heavens and the beasts have fled; they are gone.”
Revelation 11:18 “The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints, and those who fear Your name, small and great, and You should destroy those that destroy the earth.”
All those who were cruel to animals will be revealed as the scum of the earth to all creation. The animal world will get their vindication and revenge!
Proverbs 31:8 “Open your mouth for the speechless.”
But hold on animals and all nature, just a bit longer, and your groaning will soon turn to celebration. Even the trees will soon clap their hands! The rivers too, will clap their hands and the mountains and hills will sing. (Isaiah 55:12)
Isaiah 51:3 “For the Lord will comfort Zion, He will comfort all her waste places; He will make her wilderness like Eden, and the desert like the garden of the Lord; joy and gladness shall be found in it, thanksgiving and the voice of melody.”
God has turned Israel green with abundance in preparation of His soon coming. God has “built you, O virgin Israel! Again you will take up your tambourines and go forth to the dances of the merrymakers.” (Jeremiah 31:4)
To whom will we be revealed?
Hebrews 12:1 “We also are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses; let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.”
Daniel 7:27 "The kingdom and dominion and the greatness of the kingdomsunder the whole heaven, will be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom and all dominions shall serve and obey Him."
We will be revealed to the grandstands of heaven, clouds of witnesses, kingdoms, people and saints and angels. All will be revealed to all, from Adam to frogs, to kings, paupers, angels and dogs. You’ll be able to chat with David, Moses, Paul, Peter, Mary - and all.
Satan and all his host of fallen angels and demons will see you revealed in glory. They will know you – in their final shame.
Colossians 3:4 “When Christ who is our life appears; then you also will appear with him in glory.”
Daniel 12:3 “Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever.”
Daniel 7:18 "The saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom and possess the kingdom, forever even forever, and ever." Verse 22 "And the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom."
All things bright and beautiful:
Ephesians 3:8-9 “I preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Messiah, and to make all people see what is the dispensation of the fullness of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Yeshua the Messiah.”
The verse above speaks of a new dispensation in which the fullness of the kingdom of God will be manifest to all. Note how long this full revelation has been hidden. It has been hidden since the ages (eons) of time began.
We are now on the verge of the greatest revelation of all time! We are in the privileged position of partaking in all things being made truly bright and beautiful – forever.
The devil knows you by your past, but your future is hidden from him. God knows your future and has cast your past sins away and He will soon reveal the new you to that devil. He will reveal you and all creatures great and small in your final pure, holy and righteous state.
You are as beautiful diamonds in the sky, forever and ever. Our lives are a “passing vapour” now – but what a beautiful, aroma-filled, eternal, value-creating vapour this is!
Revelation 21:7 “He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.”
We have a hidden fuse burning in our souls. It’s going to ignite a nuclear explosion of glory. Suddenly we will see, and know all things. We will have an inheritance that we can’t even imagine, as we are changed into weighty glory.
We must never rest from our desire to know our Lord more and be like Him. As an artist, I can tell you that my best works were always in my head – not done yet. Soon we will all be “done”! The best creative work, the best poem ever, in the universe. And the whole universe will witness that great exhibition.
Now we see through a glass dimly, with dim eyes. We do get flashes of magnificent glory shining through, but then we have to go and wash the stupid dishes.
Psalm 91:14 “...I will set him on high because he has known my name.”
Today we walk with our head in the clouds, veiled and hidden, surrounded by a perfumed mist, but soon that veil will tear open, the mist will be gone and we will be revealed.
When you look in the mirror, you may think you’re beautiful, but you are seeing dust and ashes! As the veil is lifted, all creation will see the real you! We will put Superman to shame!
The beautiful work of the cross:
The cross is a terrible, ugly instrument of death. Our own cross is far from beautiful. But what it, and only it, produces, is pure beauty.
Today, there are few true disciples of our Lord out there, teaching on the wisdom of the cross. For the real true beauty of you to break out, the outer shell of self and its attachment to the cursed world must be broken.
Brokenness in and through the work of the Spirit is similar to cross-bearing. It is the road to victory.
Avoid the worldly man-pleasers, with a me-now message, saying that you don’t need to take up the cross. Be discerning – you do!
Look for those who will break you wonderfully!
2 Timothy 4:8 “Finally, there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord the righteous Judge shall give to me on that day, and not to me only, but also to all who have loved His appearing.”
The return of our Lord is the only hope for modern man. Man’s rebellion has completely shut out God’s mercy, grace and peace.
If you really love our Lord, you will see His hand wherever it is, even in the desert sands – and be thankful for those dry times too.
The revelation of the unsaved:
2 Corinthians 4:3-4 "Our gospel is hidden to them that are lost, in whom the god of this world has blinded the eyes of them who believe not."
Romans 2:5 “In accordance with your hardness and unrepentant heart, you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgement of God...”
When the unsaved of the world, in their darkness, see you revealed in glorious light, they will become instantly jealous and full of rage, but it will be too late for them.
All the unsaved of the world will be revealed, naked – without the cross of Messiah. They will have to say “amen” to their condemnation. They will be declared, disclosed and manifest as rejecters of God’s grace and mercy – the cross.
No apology will be accepted. They will be full of heartbreak, remorse and sorrow...too late to save them now! They will offer God their good works in payment for their sins. God will reject them all.
Some verses imply that all believers will witness the Great White Throne Judgement in which all unbelievers will appear before God to be cast into hell. That’s a frightening thought indeed!
Some Bible words describing the final end of the unsaved are: Terror, torment, sorrow, grieving, howling, weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth.
My friends, you will soon be revealed, publically displayed, disclosed, broadcast and manifest to the universe. You will be given certain roles, functions and authority in the future kingdom.
The enigma, the mind-boggler-mystery of the universe is finally revealed! And it’s no fantasy fairy-tale. Satan’s terrible failure will be seen in light of the great revelation of you and nature renewed.
We will be as purified pearls, refined gold, flawless, living diamonds – forever in a romance to end all romances.
Our true value, at this stage, is hidden as we are hidden in Messiah. We are a great, living secret, a poem being written by God Himself!
This began as one of my mixed media art works. I’ve used bits of photographs, gold leaf, air-brushing and texture techniques to create the end result.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 384: September 26th 2017.
Awakening to the man-Child!
Welcome to the New Year 5778!
Song of Solomon 8:5 “Who is this coming up from the wilderness, leaning upon her Beloved? I awakened you under the apple tree. There your mother brought you fourth; there she who bore you brought you fourth.”
I have some very exciting, and important things to share with you in coming editions!
The man-Child of Revelation 12 is not the church. He is Yeshua Hamashiach, King of Jews.
We have now just left the year 5777 and entered 5778. Seven is the number of spiritual perfection, but also the number of completion. Eight is the number of resurrection. Could this have reference to the fact that the church age is now on the threshold of completion, with resurrection / rapture on the horizon?
Is this the most exciting year in history which will see the Jews begin to awaken to their Messiah?
We are absolutely on borrowed time! There is little time left. We are about to see an explosion of many prophetic events. This will be an eventful year to say the least!
This is not “inspired” as the word of God itself is, but as with so many other peripheral biblically related things, there are often hidden messages to be found.
We have now just left the year 5777 and entered the year 5778. Consider these hidden messages:
●The 5777th verse in the Bible (Old Covenant) is:
Deuteronomy 32:18 “Of the Rock who begot you (Yeshua), you are unmindful and have forgotten the God who fathered you.
●The 5778th verse in the Bible (Old Covenant) is:
Deuteronomy 32:19 “And when the Lord saw it, He spurned them, because of the provocation of His sons and daughters.”
Is this suggesting that our Lord has now had enough of anti-Semitism and replacement theology and the Jews are about to look to the “Rock”?
Let’s read on as the same theme continues:
Deuteronomy 32:21 “I will provoke them (Jews) to jealousy by those who are not a nation; I will move them (Jews) to anger by a foolish nation (church).”
This incredible verse above is quoted again by Paul in Romans 10:19.
Something will happen with this mysterious “nation” that will cause the Jews to be jealous and angry together. It can only be a reference to the rapture of the church.
The Jews believe, rightly, that they are the chosen people. Imagine their jealousy and anger when God takes the largely Gentile church for Himself in rapture, and they are left behind!
Numerous other verses agree that the Jews will begin to be saved en mass as the tribulation begins.
Do these verses above imply that the Jews will begin to be saved as the tribulation begins, preceded by the rapture, which itself is one of the powerful “instruments” of God to spur the Jews to salvation? Could it be this year?
Again, this is not inspired as the Bible is, but many believe that there are messages in the Psalms relating to the years.
Psalm 118 is believed by some to be representative of 2018.
Psalm 118:19-28 “Open to me the gates of righteousness; I will go through them, and I will praise the Lord...the stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone. This was the Lord’s doing, marvellous in our eyes. This is the day that the Lord has made; we will rejoice in it and be glad...God is the Lord and has given us light.”
An incredible message from the Rabbis:
The Hebrew Rabbis set a verse for each new - year.
This year, 5778, they have found a verse which, in Hebrew, contains the gematria 5778 within the verse. (Bear in mind that unlike English, Hebrew is an alpha – numeric alphabet / language). It is the only verse in which these numbers 5778 are found.
It is our title verse:
Song of Solomon 8:5 “Who is this coming up from the wilderness, leaning upon her Beloved? I awakened you under the apple tree. There your mother brought you fourth; there she who bore you brought you fourth.”
The apple and the apple tree are symbols (amongst others) of Israel. In Hebrew, the apple tree itself is part of the “awakening.”
Who was it that came up out of the wilderness? It was the Jews after the Exodus from Egypt. They have now gone to sleep spiritually. In fact, with a few exceptions, they have been asleep for over 2000 years, putting sleeping beauty to shame! But more on her further down.
The Jews are the ones coming up from the wilderness, now leaning on the Lord, being spiritually awakened to Messiah within collective Israel – in 5778!
Song of Solomon 2:1-4 “I am the rose of Sharon and the lily of the valleys. Like a lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters. Like an apple tree among the trees of the woods, so is my beloved among the sons...He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.”
Amazingly the word “daughters” in the verse above is Strong’s H1323, “Bath.” Meanings: Young girl, apple, branches”
We see another verse describing the “withered”, spiritually sleeping Israel below:
Joel 1:12 “The vine has dried up, and the fig tree has withered; the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also and the apple tree – all the trees of the field are withered; surely joy has withered away from the sons of men.”
Israel, the “apple of God’s eye,” are you about to be awakened under the apple tree with all the others “apples”?
The Rabbis believe that this will be the year in which world peace breaks out. The dove of Noah has returned! I heard one Rabbi describe 5778: “This is the year of divine peace...Mashiach is coming, this is the year of our redemption.”
They may have part of that right, but instead of world peace, world war will break out first!
The warrior bride:
Some verses speak of the church as the bride and others of Israel in her future salvation as a bride.
This bride takes off her beautiful dress before her husband, but underneath she is wearing armour. She has weapons of warfare. She has fighter jets and nuclear bombs all around her. You don’t want to mess with this gentle, beautiful bride!
Imagine running up to pat and cuddle a nice soft lamb and suddenly it changes into an adult lion right in front of you? This warrior bride contains the same imagery and analogy.
Song of Solomon 6:4 “O my love, you are as beautiful as Tizrah, lovely as Jerusalem, awesome as an army with banners!”
Song of Solomon 3:6-8 “Who is this coming out of the wilderness like pillars of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and frankincense...the valiant of Israel all hold swords, being experts in war...”
►The word “pillars” in the verse above is Strong’s H8490. Meaning: “Spreading like a palm-tree top.” That is a perfect description of an A-bomb mushroom cloud! (It is also found in Joel 2:30)
This warrior bride is bedecked in splendid weaponry. She is the true “battle axe” of God. (Jeremiah 51:20) She moves, sings and dances like a bride, but this is a bride of war, married to the Commander in Chief, the Lord of hosts (armies). (Did you know that’s what “hosts” means?)
Tragically though, this beautiful, mysterious bride has gone to sleep under the apple tree – for a long, long time. Israel ate a poisoned apple, poisoned with the poison of a false belief that Yeshua is not their God - the man-Child! How will she awake?
Most of us know the story. This beautiful princess pricked her finger, and fell asleep for 100 years. Then a man-Child, a Prince, came along kissed her, and she woke up.
Isaiah 29:10 (Headed: “The blindness of disobedience.”) “The Lord has poured out upon you (Israel) the spirit of deep sleep, and has closed your eyes, namely, the prophets; He has covered your heads namely, the seers.”
When the Prince kissed the sleeping beauty she awoke, but if you know the story, everyone in the castle including the animals, awoke with astonished eyes. Suddenly, they could see the light!
Psalm 2:12 “Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish in your way, when His wrath is kindled. Blessed are those who put their trust in Him.”
Ephesians 5:14 “Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Messiah will give you light.”
Israel is the sleeping beauty! She is soon to be God’s warrior bride. She is about to be kissed by the Prince of all Princes – and what a kiss that will be! It will shake the whole world!
Romans 13:11-12 “Know the time, that it is now high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast of the works of darkness and let us put on the armour of light.” (This one is for the church, but can apply to Israel too.)
O, Israel, what a beautiful, unique, sleeping beauty, bedecked in diamonds, guns and bombs you are!
Soon, amidst a world-Holocaust of nuclear blaze, you will set the world 'ablaze' with the salvation of the living God through your Jewish Messiah – Yeshua! “The Gentiles will come to your light."
Isaiah 60:1-3 “Arise shine; for your (Israel) light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you...The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.”
Psalm 80:18-19 (Headed: “Israel’s cry for restoration.”) “We will not turn back from You; revive us and we will call upon Your name. Restore us O Lord God of hosts; cause Your face to shine, and we shall be saved!”
Isaiah 52:2 “Shake yourself from the dust, arise; sit down, O Jerusalem! Loose yourself from the bonds of your neck, O captive daughter of Zion.”
Again, the word “Daughter” above is Strong’s H1323: “Bath”. Meanings: Female child, branch, apple of eye.
But there are many, driven by invisible spirits who want to lead Israel astray.
Micah 3:5-8 (Headed: “Wicked prophets.”) “Concerning the prophets who make my people stray; who chant ‘peace’...Therefore, you shall have night without vision, and you shall have darkness without divination. The sun shall go down on the prophets, and the day shall be dark for them...for there is no answer from God.”
A diamond of great value:
Martin Luther, often quoted by Hitler, wrote that Jews must be burnt to a cinder! In fact the word Holocaust means: “Fiery sacrifice.” Satan has tried the same thing many times and failed. From the ashes of the Holocaust, comes a beautiful diamond, currently hidden, soon to dazzle the world, bringing salvation to the nations.
God’s plan always was and still is to bring the good news to the Jews and have them complete the task of taking it worldwide, in the tribulation.
Israel’s many fiery Holocausts and persecutions have failed to destroy them. It has backfired on every enemy of God’s plans, from Satan himself through world history. It will very soon turn the Jews into a spectacular diamond of great value.
The deadly return:
Arnold and Satan have both said “I’ll be back.”
If you do not root out error it grows into a monster. If you do, and are not vigilant, it returns to you often in a much more severe form.
Replacing Israel with the church is the cursed doctrine of replacement theology. It effectively gets rid of all God’s plans and promises to the Jewish people for their salvation and their end-time call.
But removing Israel from a verse and inserting the church, is another form of the same thing. It takes away the promises of God to the Jewish people. It removes Yeshua as the agent of salvation for the Jews in the tribulation period.
Because this is a spirit of error at work, its logical conclusion is horrific!
You can say that this is just a doctrinal belief, but for your information, doctrines grow legs. Doctrines of error speak and shout loud and long. Delusions and idols wield guns not roses.
The age old spirit of Satan has not changed at all. Until he gets forever cast into hell, he will be back. He knows who the cursed Nibiru agents are. He knows where the holes in your armour are. He knows how he used you to sow error before. He will be back. (If you let him!)
The future horror of the morphing Revelation 12 sign:
Now that the Revelation 12 sign has failed totally, as I expected (and wrote), its spirit is still here.
I believe that what was birthed on September 23rd (The Revelation 12 sign) was something deeply sinister and satanic! It was a landmark in mass Christian deception and a marker of much greater deceptions to come...ask our Lord!
Replacement theology is the replacing of Israel with the church. It has been present in various forms since the foundation of the church.
If you replace Yeshua with the church, as the signers do, (male-Child) the end result is the denial of the agent of salvation for the Jews – our Lord Himself.
●If the male-Child is our Lord, as the majority consensus rightly believes, it is He that is at work in the tribulation period bringing the Jews to salvation.
By the way, the word “Man” (man-Child) is Strong’s G730, “Arren.” Meanings: Male, man (singular). The word occurs 9 times in the NT, all consistent with a singular male – the man-Child. This word is never used to describe a corporate body, the church, not even once.
Now let’s look at other giant errors of the Revelation 12 sign interpretation:
●The claim is made that Isaiah 66:7-8 is a reference to the church being born again in a day. That’s the most horrendous bit of exegesis I have ever seen. The verse is clearly talking of Israel, the Jews and Jerusalem – it says as much in the rest of the verse!! Their view is out of context and dispensation!
But again here is the horror. They are replacing God’s work in Israel with the church. Does that matter? It most certainly will further down the line, ask all anti-Semites and replacement theologians.
Here are two parallel verses to the “nation born in a day” of Isaiah 66:7-8
Zechariah 3:9 “...I will remove the iniquity of that land (Israel) in one day.”
Isaiah 66:19 “I will set a sign among them (Jews)...they shall declare My glory among the Gentiles.”
The big sign for this year is the revelation of our Lord to His people in ever-increasing numbers. This is contextually accurate and lines up with other signs for the Jews.
The interpretation of the Revelation 12 sign we have just seen, is a threat and danger to Israel’s coming salvation. When it arises again in a new form, it will again be a new grave danger to Israel, and again coming from a section of the church!
Isaiah 7:14 “The Lord Himself will give you (Israel) a sign: Behold a virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.”
The great shaking and ingathering:
●We are on the verge of a great shaking – these will be birth pangs which will shake the whole world like never before.
Isn’t it interesting that whenever there are big disasters even unbelievers start praying or at least talking of God. Well, whatever it takes!
●We are on the verge of many Christians being shaken out of their complacency into great personal revival.
●We are on the verge of a massive outpouring of the Spirit of God resulting in salvation going forth to the nations like never before. This will be the “former and latter rain” together. (Hosea 6:3)
●We are on the verge of the Jews suddenly recognising their Messiah and coming to salvation.
●We are on the verge of great judgement falling on the spirit-less church.
●We are on the verge of the greatest deceptions ever in much of the church.
●We are on the verge of much of the church becoming Israel’s great enemy, while some become their true best friends forever!
●We are on the verge of the rapture, a dispensation change to the final seven years – the tribulation period.
Do you want the Lord’s coming to hurry up? I most certainly do. Well here’s how you can participate in the hastening of the Lord. You need to participate in the kingdom message being preached to the world and to Israel.
The end-time message is a kingdom message and not that of divided institutional churchianity.
The Jews are about to awaken to the man-Child – Yeshua and their great salvation. Will you stand with them and support them, or be against them?
Will you replace Yeshua, the man-Child, with the church, the man-Child, who can’t save the Jews because the church didn’t die on a cross for anyone?
My great desire for you is for you to have a soft and broken heart before our Lord in these days of rampant pride, and a teachable head, full of the knowledge, understanding and the wisdom of God. That is the way to peace.
My great desire is for you to feel safe and secure in the truth. Rest in peace in the truth, my friends. Of course you don’t have to. You can rest in the couch of your local shrink as stress and turmoil expands and intensifies with the great shaking to come.
Now we’re in 5778. I give you my assurance that I will continue to seek my Lord with all my heart. I will continue to seek to know Him and make Him known to you in the ways He shows me to.
I will continue to watch, pray, warn and encourage as we go into real exciting times. The things of a prophetic nature I will share with you, will come to pass, you will see it.
I took the background picture from a micro-light flying over the massive, incredible, 15,000sqkm Okavango Delta, and the inset picture of a white-tree with roots that grow out of the rock, in the Namib Desert.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
Edition 383: September 19th 2017.
Letter to devastated Christians:
Don’t neglect to read the last chapter!
Sigh, O sign of failure!
Firstly: I’m a pre-tribber. I believe in the rapture, and wish it was yesterday. But this is not it!
As regular readers know, I’ve rejected the interpretation of the Revelation 12 sign doing the rounds. At first, a few years ago, I did consider it on the condition that other Bible signs would be in place. This was all before praying over it and looking into it. I then quickly put it on the shelf, and then rejected it in total.
I came under a fair bit of attack from various Rev 12-sign manipulators and intimidators.
The Revelation 12 sign has been so popularised that the Washington Post, Boston Globe, CBN and others in the secular media have been reporting on it.
The sign interpretation:
The Revelation 12:1-5 sign and its interpretation is the belief that the “male-Child” of verse five, is the church, which will be “born again” in rapture. (harpazo). They claim that the church was not born at Pentecost only conceived. They claim that the sign is confirmed in verses describing signs in Joel 2:30, and elsewhere. Additional “confirmation” they say is found in Isaiah 66:8, referring to a “nation born in a day”. They claim that the male Child must be a reference to the church because Revelation 12 speaks of the church (at Thyatira) “ruling with a rod of iron”.
Then a giant leap is made to the software programme “Stellarium” (and others) which show a constellation alignment in the stars resembling the biblical sign, but now in astronomical terms. This event occurs on September 23rd 2017, which is presented as the rapture date, which is the same as Rosh Hashanah. They claim that the Stellarium alignment is a once in 7000 year event, making it extremely rare.
●The male Child can only be our Lord and not the church when considering all the surrounding context and other signs for the Jews in other verses. ●The word "harpazo"is used 14 times in the Bible. There is even a satanic harpazo. It can be used of our Lord as well. ●If the church was not born at Pentecost it messes up the relationship of the church age to the Feasts of the Lord. ●Joel 2:30 cannot be used at all because it says what sign it is speaking of, which is the sun, moon and stars going dark at the Second Advent. (Verse31) Besides, Joel is distinctly speaking of tribulation events and has nothing to do with the church age. The use of the term “before” the coming of the Lord does not mean before as in the church age. If you look it up you will see the word can also be translated “because of”!! ●Isaiah 66:7-9 is not speaking of the new-birth of the church. It is referring to the birth of Israel. It even says “Rejoice Jerusalem.” ●The “iron rod” rule refers to our Lord, although a secondary application may include the church in the Millennium.●7000 years in astronomical terms is a drop in the ocean. It is meaningless. The entire convergence is meaningless prophetically. ●The 23rd September is not Rosh Hashanah, which is the 21st – 22nd.
All of the above issues may seem small, but because they have been so dogmatically presented worldwide to prove the rapture date, people are going to be shipwrecked. It is a huge issue!
Because of this new, private interpretation, other doctrines have to be changed in accordance with the domino-effect. Changes are required in the meaning of the new-birth, the way the birth of the church at Pentecost fits the Feast of Pentecost. The meaning of the prophecy of Israel’s birth in one day is now null and void.
There are numerous other doctrinal knock-on problems.
No explanations are given by the signers for all the missing prophetic pieces like plans for a seven-year peace covenant / treaty.
All of this is presented as “100%” proof that the rapture will happen on the 23rd. The entirety of the sign and its interpretation is presented dogmatically as the truth, with the church having been wrong on many of these things all along.
The entire issue is a giant collective error.
Hundreds of new ministries have sprung up on social media promoting the sign. Having many agree with you does not make it truth. It only increases the guilt of all involved, as it damages the body of Messiah.
Collective deception is dangerous because of the contaminated confirmation-bias that runs within it.
Dealing with error:
Bear in mind that the anointing of God is never on error but only on truth. The end result of error is trouble!
Doctrinal error never produces trust. It destroys trust or at least make it very difficult for many to trust the truth once it has been blended with error and exposed as such.
People loose reverence and respect for the prophetic word, for the Bible, the watchmen and ultimately for God.
Doctrinal error is a playground of pride, ending in poisonous, relationship-destroying bitterness. Manipulation and intimidation are fruits of error and the authoritarianism of the devil himself.
The wise will see these traps from a distance, and steer clear.
We are to be guardians of the truth not apostles of error!
Too many are motivated by the need for, and love of self-importance and self-affirmation. The collective approval of man is always dangerous.
In these dangerous days you need to take heed you are not deceived. If you don’t, you will be deceived. Our Lord said so, so be vigilant. Almost every passage in the Bible relating to these end times is accompanied with warnings against deception and error. You can’t say you haven’t been warned!
Even miraculous signs and wonders do not mean that they are true. The only way to avoid deception is to know the Bible well, and the Spirit of truth – its author.
The Bible says of our Lord: “I am the truth.” Then it says, “Your word is truth,” and then, “the Spirit is truth.”
If you want to walk right with God in all truth, you need to walk closely with our Lord, His word and His Spirit, shed abroad in your hearts. You need the spiritual gifts as well, specifically of revelation and discernment. You need the whole package deal.
The Spirit of truth and spirit of error:
Both will eventually manifest with their fruits. You can already see the pride, anger and bitterness with many of the signers against us who reject the error.
The great danger of the spirit of error is that it progresses, deepens and worsens. It is a big deal simply because it kills the truth. You can’t really kill truth, but you can kill or obscure it in someone else’s eyes.
A person who has been infiltrated by the spirit of error in certain areas quickly becomes un-teachable, because you can’t reason with a spirit of error.
All error has damaging effects. Big errors can wreck people’s lives!
Make no mistake, you Revelation 12 signers, you are responsible for the damage you do, even if that was not your intention.
Many people are legitimately ignorant of the Bible because they are new believers. Many have a low IQ or are illiterate and easy prey for the spirit of error.
But there are heavy warnings for those who lead the vulnerable astray!
Isaiah 9:16 “The leaders of this people cause them to err, and those who are led by them are destroyed.”
Malachi 2:8 “You have departed from the way; you have caused many to stumble...”
The spirit of error will be back and many of the same people will be its new disciples – Blind disciples of YouTube, deceived and deceiving!
YouTube is a powerful platform for the dissemination of deception worldwide, quickly, intentionally or not.
Many lives may be spiritually lost or at least damaged because of this. Many will be thrown into confusion and despair.
When people use manipulation like “God told me” they are calling in God to back them up. They are giving themselves great self-importance and self-affirmation. But they will soon see that it is god and the spirit of error whom they’ve called in when their entire castle falls down.
The evangelists and defenders of the Revelation 12 sign have become an exclusive club, condemning others who don’t agree with them. They have elevated themselves, of course without admitting it.
If you join them, I tell you now, you are wrong.
They have become the mockers and scoffers of those who search the scriptures! Of course they say that we don’t search the scriptures because we don’t see what they do.
Bible prophecy is 100% accurate 100% of the time! Yes it is, but the Rev 12 sign version is about to be revealed. Will it be a product of the spirit of error? – Yes, it will!
When teachers come up with new revelation, they need to be especially on guard. It gives them a sense of importance and God-imputed spiritual authority, which has a powerful appeal to pride. That is just when the Spirit of truth leaves them and the spirit of error comes in with illegitimate authority.
I do not believe that the originators of the Revelation 12 sign and a few others have intended to deceive anyone. Their motives are right. But we are dealing with spirits!
The big bottom line in all of this is: Did it come to pass?
Candidates for deception:
Here is a list of the types of people who are candidates for continuing deception:
●Those who elevate an individual - If he said it, that settles it. ●Those who receive private, or personal interpretation of the Bible. ●Those who continue to be deceived over and over again. ●Those with personal ambition. ●Those who are unteachable. ●Those who are ignorant of scripture. ●Those with no fear of the Lord. ●Those who reject the fullness of Spirit.
There are many more – you can add your own favourites.
If you ignore Spirit-led Bible teaching, you have no right to hear from God and you won’t, but you will hear the voice of many other spirits sounding like God.
God has told us to judge all things and to judge prophets and prophecy. (1 Corinthians 2:15) Any prophet not willing to be judged must be avoided. The Revelation 12 signers have spewed judgement on all who reject their view and work, and are stone deaf to any judgement on their work.
Counter judgement or firing back obviously means no repentance is required!
Error sticks like glue, but it also protects itself in a dark cloud. If you can get rid of it, it knows you and how vulnerable you are to it, and it comes back. Error is as unyielding as concrete. It is born in a lie. The great Christian error of the Revelation 12 interpretation says: “You search the scriptures, but if you don’t find what we find, we will attack and condemn you!
The Bible does not say, “Study to show yourself approved to the Revelation 12 signers”.
Watchmen are watchmen of the Lord, not watchmen of YouTube! Watchmen are listeners as well. They listen to the still small voice of God in their hearts.
Repentance is a wonderful thing. It sets free from many prisons. Failure to repent is terrible, but a return to error after repentance is worse and a great entrapment.
Have you ever noticed or wondered why it’s always the same people who get hoodwinked and bamboozled into error? I say again – it’s because they have entertained and made welcome the spirit of error.
There is a powerful bewitching force behind the spirit of error. It seldom comes upon people in one big flash. Like a spell, it entices and progresses and becomes more and more attractive, deepening the blindness of the individual as it goes.
If you are really looking for our Lord, you will find Him in your godly fear, and it will produce in you brokenness, holiness and a leading into truth.
The big bottom line is the leading of the Spirit. Knowledge of the scriptures is absolutely vital.
The leading of the Spirit is not the approval of man! The Spirit of God never works through hype and manipulation – never! The hype created around this Revelation 12 sign is a tragedy and a perfect sign that it is not of the Spirit of truth.
Today like never before, people need people they can trust. Not people who go blindly from one deception to the next and most certainly not people who use hype, manipulation and intimidation to gain control.
To be doctrinally correct, you have to have all the pieces of the puzzle together and in their right place. There are still various end-time signs outstanding. You must obey the laws of interpretation and not cherry-pick from one dispensation to another.
Dispensational context is vital to correct interpretation. You can’t take verses from Joel, Isaiah or others in the Old Covenant, dealing with Israel and the Jews and use them for church-age signs.
Your doctrine must not violate other doctrines or contradict other verses, of scripture.
There is a great deal of importance in correct hermeneutics exegesis, application and interpretation. It’s a vital, vast subject and requires much study. But it is glorious and worth it.
In the past many have come up with revolutionary new private interpretations. Many of them have had similar characteristics surrounding them as we have here. They have all been crushed and killed by truth, standing as an eternal pillar.
The verse below is so relative to this situation and our time today:
Jeremiah 23:30-32 “’I am against the prophets’, says the Lord, who steal My words, everyone from his neighbour. I am against the prophets, says the Lord, who use their tongues and say, ‘He says’. ‘Behold, I am against those who prophesy false dreams,’ says the Lord, and tell them, and cause My people to err, by their lies and by their recklessness. I did not send them or command them.’”
My friends, you need to be discerning. You need the revelatory gifts, the gifts of spiritual warfare and protection in these deadly dangerous days, especially now that we are on the verge of it all getting far worse – quickly.
Now that the Revelation 12 sign has failed (if you’re reading this after the 23rd), you signers can’t say that you were right. You must say that you were wrong. If you say you were right or “I didn’t set a date,” you are relinquishing and renouncing responsibility. In effect you are handing over that responsibility to God and saying He is wrong.
Accountability is on language, intention and action. The problem with all the Revelation 12 signers is that there is no caution in their words.
Many are being prepared now to receive false prophecies in greater dimensions and lead God’s people astray. All teachers have a great responsibility upon them. Many have no right to be teachers. They are self-appointed!
Because error in the things of God is a spirit, it is alive and morphs into deception and then into a curse, which is much more powerful and difficult to get rid of. One of its terrible characteristics is that it always comes back and not necessarily in the same form.
Personally, I have no problem with looking at dates and will do so myself in the future again, because God’s word commands us to. But, in this case you can’t have it both ways. It’s simple linguistic logic. You can’t say that the rapture will occur on the 23rd but you’re not setting a date. That is not logical. It is trying to cover all your bases and relinquish responsibility.
What will be interesting to see on the 24th September and beyond are all the excuses. I somehow think few will repent. Some will. Some will disappear into the woodwork. The ones who don’t repent are guaranteed to be the ones that will be back with the next deception.
If its “100% for sure” and “God told me,” and now the 23rd comes and goes uneventfully, the Revelation 12 teachers must now blame God and criticise Him. Obviously it’s God’s fault!
It must be empty excuses, blaming God, or repentance. The latter being the only true way, but that will still leave many shipwrecked believers.
Many of these teachers need to do the right thing and get out of all forms of ministry. Many need to close their YouTube ministries down. In fact, I considered applying for some to be closed, but then I decided against it, due to the last chapter in this edition.
I’ve mentioned this before, but it bears repeating. Not all who have got into this Revelation 12 sign are false prophets. A false prophet is one who is of another, false spirit and not just someone who you don’t agree with or have a temporary problem with.
Also bear in mind that attacking an error is not always attacking the person.
But also please note the following two verses:
Romans 16:17 “Note those that cause divisions contrary to the doctrine which you have leaned, and avoid them.”
2 Timothy 4:3-5 “...They will heap up teachers for themselves and they will turn their ears away from the truth...But you, be watchful in all things...”
To those who have been devastated, hurt, injured or attacked by the signers:
So, now that the sign has failed, leaving behind a trail of devastation, what are you going to do?
Back in the 80s I read a book by Gene Edwards entitled “Letters to devastated Christians”, from which I derived the title of this edition. His main point was that it is primarily the responsibility of the individual for getting “devastated” in the first place.
That is largely true, but as I have said here, there is also a great responsibility on the teachers. So healing is needed in both quarters.
As you grow in our Lord, especially in these days, you need to grow in the discernment of spirits, knowledge of God, and understanding of all of His word and godly wisdom.
The way out is costly and is the opposite of man’s way of thinking. It is to forgive, release, let go and learn any lessons that are there to be learnt, and move forward.
In spite of devastation, have an attitude of thankfulness, that you are a child of God. Thankfulness always brings a spirit of grace into your life. Be thankful that things were not worse. Be thankful that you will soon walk in glory with our Lord. Humble yourself in God’s sight and He will lift you up and give you sight!
To the hurt, our Lord says: “I will be a father to you.” But you must meet the conditions: “Let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God”.
John 16:1 “These things I have spoken to you, so that you should not be made to stumble.”
There is always safety and security in the revealed word of God.
1 Peter 3:13-14 “Who is he who will harm you if you become followers of what is good? But even if you should suffer for righteousness sake, you are blessed. Do not be afraid of their threats nor be troubled.”
Okay, okay, enough said on all of this, but we can’t leave it here. Reconciliation is where to leave it. These things had to be addressed though. Hopefully we won’t have to deal with this again for another 7000 years.
Repentance is a wonderful, healing thing. Because many of the teachers (not all) involved in this are mature Christians, I just know that they would wish to make things right and be right with God and man.
I can only speak for myself. Based on their repentance, and letting things go, I must say to all the signers, that I love you. I want the best for you, as I do for me, so I’m burying the hatchet with no malice. I hold out an olive branch to you and wipe the slate clean.
Dear readers, if you look outside towards the horizon and see smoke rising – that’s a bunch of us smoking a big peace-pipe together.
We will continue to watch and pray. The coming of our Lord draws ever nearer. We will see and know the time.
Isaiah 52:8 “Your watchmen shall lift up their voices, with their voices they shall sing together. They shall see eye to eye when the Lord brings back Zion.”
I took these pictures out in our wilds. There is the remains of a 2000 year-old Camel-thorn Tree in the desert, a waterfall in the forest, and a girl. I superimposed them all into one just for fun!
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
