|This ministry has a distinct kingdom vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for Israel and the church. My position is pre-trib! I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share with you the great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God, to bless Israel and her people and the kingdom of God.|
►We have now reached 47 million regular visitors.
►Next Edition, Lord willing: "Meanderings and musings of my mind."
Why the pre-trib rapture is the only view that adds up and works.
- US Democratic Party diplomat calls for Nations with a Christian influence to come against Israel, saying “Jesus Christ came to save the whole world from the Jews...Jews are not chosen!”
- Report: “Obama tried to give the Golan to Syria.” But then came Trump who “gave” the Golan to Israel! And the difference is = The Bible!
- US Dems take followers further and further away from all things related to a nation under God.
- Russia warns Israel: "No more attacks on Syria or we will strike back."
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose of this report is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
War drums and trumpets:
Firstly I would like to really thank all those who have recently donated to this ministry. I must say I was amazed at the incredible response from so many. Thank you very much for your blessing to the kingdom of God, above all.
There’s a risk in giving out names that some will feel left out if I don’t name them. So please know that you are all being thanked and will be rewarded. You have encouraged me greatly with your gratitude. You are special! We go on to ever increasing glory!
I give you my assurance that I will continue to give you my best, in spite of wanting to go and live under a tree in the desert sometimes.
Please keep The Prophetic Scroll in your prayer, in that it stays open and unrestricted in these dangerous days. Also keep it as your essential go-to place for what is really happening, and for your deep spiritual growth.
The rumbling war drums:
Drum beats have many classifications. We have blues beat, disco beat, the jazz swing, the motown groove and more. But we also have a particular drum beat of war and battle. The drums of war actually originate from the repeating drum beat of the shaman or witchdoctor.
A certain drum beat would mean either dance or get ready for war. The drum beat would stimulate and strengthen the body and forge a sense of unity by the beat. They would unite the human and the spirit world. The drums of war were also referred to as the drums of death, especially when combined with trumpets.
I said all of that just for this: Can you hear the drums of war rolling? Can you hear the crescendo of drums and trumpets of great conflict echoing through the atmosphere?
This is where we are now. The drums and trumpets are only for those with ears to hear. Others would be wise to listen to those with ears to hear.
The terrible war machine of the nations is warming up to take control of the sleeping nations, who are led by the aged and wrinkled of mind, the pacifists and the true enemies of real liberty and freedom.
Russia is beating the war-drums as she threatens Israel with attack for attacking Iranian targets in Syria. Syria is beating new war drums covered with the ash of long-standing war. Iran is beating the war drum against Israel again, again, again!
Biden and his party are asleep to it all, including the blonde half-baked fairy from hell whose grand burning desire is to change the gender of kids.
It’s not just the US. Europe is worse in many areas.
It seems that insanity has suddenly been let out of the cage and is infecting the world so fast. Here is one of the succinct verses about those who have forsaken the Lord:
Deuteronomy 28:28 “The Lord will strike you with madness and blindness and confusion of mind.”
In the old days we would fight over God’s creative beauty - a girl, and the girls would fight over us – Oh the good ole-days!
The bigger wars are fought over property, religion, political systems and the like. But there is really only one war that is of importance and that is the war to eliminate God’s beautiful creative purpose for Israel. It comes in many guises, but that is the underlying reason. It’s purely spiritual. It is the devil against God, at the end of the day.
So now we sit on the brink of war – the big one! Drums are rolling, trumpets are blowing and madmen from hell are arising, struck with blinding confusion and their weapons of annihilation tucked into their big-bird, metal wings.
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall; Humpty Dumpty had a great fall, because an atom bomb blew him to smithereens. And all the king’s horses and all the king’s men took seven years to clean up the remnants of poor Humpty. What fun!
I can hear the drums of drama but I also hear the trumpet calling me to go and live under a tree in the desert! (Move over lions.)
The great war for God’s son – Israel, is prophesied. (Exodus 4:22-23) It’s all getting pretty hot in here. You need to know these things. You need to know why all things and people of God are targets.
People with no knowledge of the living God are fools, and easy to manipulate and turn into cannon fodder for every dumb gun in town.
You need to be anchored in the truth.
True living is living in truth.
If you try to befriend Satan and appease him, and walk in peace with him, you will automatically, by default, set yourself up as an enemy of God and you will pay the price!
Yes, Israel will miss it again and fall under punishment again, but the most stupid thing you can do is come against Israel in the bigger, overall picture.
Biden prepares to “kill” the Second Amendment right to bear arms in the US. Israel observes and compares this to Haman’s actions to try to destroy the Jews. Biden befriends the enemies of the west and of Israel in Yemen and Iran steps right in!
There was a time when God overlooked the ignorance of stupid, dumb politicians and people, but that day is gone (Acts 17:30, Acts 14:16)
Here’s a verse that should blow a lot more than your socks off:
Esther 9:1-2 “On the day that the enemies of the Jews had hoped to overpower them, the opposite occurred, in that the Jews themselves overpowered those who hated them...No one could withstand them because the fear of them fell upon all people.”
Take note, I say again take note, of the gravity of this verse above!!
The enemies of God and his son Israel, are united under Satan. The political parties, churches, inter-faith organisations and false religions of the world already have an unwritten unity between them – a hell bound unity!
The unity between true born-again believers is a unity based on truth and not lovey-dovey feelings.
As a believer, your culture must change! Your character and your personality must change as you grow in God. If not you will end up going with the flow of the wind.
Edition 72. March 8th 2011
In this edition:
●I will shake all things
●What Israel thinks of the Middle East upheavals.
What Israel thinks of the Middle East turmoil:
The current upheavals in the nations surrounding Israel represent a new paradigm shift. The speed with which the turmoil has spread is quite amazing. But what of the nation caught right in the middle?...What is Israel thinking?
Israelis are increasingly becoming worried about what this is all leading to. Some rabbis are talking of the forerunners to the great war of Gog and Magog. One rabbi said that this all shows that "our Messiah is soon to appear."
Israeli Jews are increasingly searching Google (in Hebrew) for their Messiah. Some 50,000 searches a month have been recorded and it's increasing all the time.
The 'stage' is being set. The 'furniture' is being re-organised and the 'actors' are waiting in the wings. What we are witnessing is the preparation for the greatest drama of all time which will begin to take centre stage soon.
The events in the Middle East and North Africa of late are unstoppable. It's like a genie being let out of the bottle. You can't put it back in. It's like there is a giant invisible puppeteer silently pulling the strings. People want to bring down their zombie dictators and rightly so, but what will follow is the problem.
The Arab / Islamic nations in conflict, may well present a new united face of opposition to Israel. The Muslim Brotherhood are no peace-loving harmless bunch as they're believed to be by many in the West. You will see their true colours emerge soon!
The changes sweeping the Arab world may appear to be pro-west, but this is a thin veneer. You can be sure that the barrel of a Kalashnikov held by Al Qaeda or others will come into play.
I will shake all things: Nations, Israel and the church
This is a very positive edition, but you'll have to read it all to get the full picture.
Luke 12:49 "I came to send fire on the earth and how I wish it was already kindled." These are the words of our Messiah!
Luke 21:25 "There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the seas and the waves roaring; mens hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming upon the earth, for the powers of heaven will be shaken."
Revelation 6:4 "Another horse, fiery red, went out and it was granted to the one who sat on it, to take peace from the earth..." God will remove peace from this earth! When He does this no one will find peace!
Isaiah 13:13 Therefore I will shake the heavens and the earth will move out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts and in the day of His fierce anger."
Nahum 1:2 "God is jealous and the Lord avenges; The Lord avenges and is furious. He will take vengeance on His adversaries, He reserves His wrath for His enemies."
Some like Rick Warren are casting down the Word of God and are pushing for global peace, while our Lord is promising global wrath. "For when they say peace and safety; then sudden destruction comes upon them as a woman in labour."- 1Thessalonians 5:3
Huge destruction is coming. The worst will be in the second half of the soon coming tribulation period, but we will see many forerunners or "birth pangs."
It's all about pride, arrogance and the rejection of God's word. The rejection of God's word always leads to its own problems and to ultimate failure. God is not some angry Man spewing judgement everywhere. He has a plan for the world. He knows best. His judgment is on His enemies and on those who follow Satan's plans of rebellion to Him.
For those who believe in our Lord, His ways and His word, there is no judgement except for reward. For those who humble themselves before our Lord there are oceans of peace now and in the future, even as all things get shaken.
Joel 3:16 "The Lord also will roar from Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem; the heavens and earth will shake; but the Lord will be a shelter for His people."
In Him is peace and joy that surpasses understanding.
Hebrews 12:26 "His voice has promised saying, yet once more I shake not only the earth but also heaven. This "yet once more" indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain." God will shake everything that can be shaken, so that which cannot be shaken will be strengthened and endure.
It's important to understand that only that which is of the kingdom of God is unshakeable.
God will shake the proud nations, the proud churches, the pride of Israel. God will shake all self assurance, arrogance and the pride of all people.
When what you put your trust in starts shaking violently, you automatically look for something stable to hold onto. This will be a time of incredible revival as people turn to the safety of the kingdom of God.
Arrogance against God's plans for Israel and the Jew:
One of the big reasons for the coming judgement is because of the world's collective actions against Israel, led by Satan himself.
Do you know why Pharaoh and the Egyptians came against the children of Israel as Moses led them to freedom? It was because God had said "Let My people go." Today the situation is the same. This is now the second Exodus! God is saying that His people will return to their land and to spiritual salvation. God says in His word that He will bring the Jews back into their land in blindness and then the veil of spiritual blindness will be lifted.
Modern day Pharaoh's in many guises will again pursue the Jews just like before.
Ezekiel 35:5 "Because you (Arabs) have had an ancient hatred, and shed the blood of the children of Israel, by the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, when their iniquity came to an end, therefore as I live says the Lord God, I will prepare you for blood and blood shall pursue you."
Ezekiel 28:25-26 "When I have gathered the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and am hallowed in them in the sight of the Gentiles, then they will dwell in their own land which I gave to My servant Jacob. And they will dwell safely there, build houses and plant vineyards; yes they will dwell securely, when I execute judgment on those around them who despise them. Then they shall know that I am the Lord their God."
Micah 4:11-13 "Now also many nations have gathered against you, who say, "Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion." But they do not know the thoughts of the Lord, nor do they understand His counsel; For He will gather them like sheaves for the threshing floor. Arise and thresh O daughter of Zion; For I will make your horn iron, and I will make your hooves bronze; You shall beat in pieces many peoples."
Isaiah 42:14-16 "I have held My peace a long time, I have been still and restrained Myself. Now I will cry like a woman in labour, I will pant and gasp at once, I will lay waste the mountains and the hills and dry up all their vegetation; I will make the rivers coastlands. I will bring the blind by a way they do not know, I will lead them in paths they may not have known. I will make darkness light before them. These things I will do for them and not forsake them."
Haggai 2:7 "I will shake all nations and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations and I will fill this temple with glory says the Lord of hosts (armies). "
Psalm 125:2-3 "As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds His people from this time forth and forever. For the sceptre of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous."
The above verses speak very strong words of warning against those who in their pride reject God's plans for Israel and in fact stand in His way.
But Israel will also come under God's judgement for her rejection of Messiah and God's plan. He chose them for a purpose, which will come about. Unfortunately, as with the nations their pride has got in the way and blinded them in the interim.
The pride of Israel:
Ezekiel 5:5-9 "This is Jerusalem I have set her in the midst of the nations. She has rebelled against My judgements by doing wickedness more than nations, and against My statutes, more than all the countries around her, for they have refused My judgements and they have not walked in My statutes. Therefore, thus says the Lord, because you have multiplied your disobedience, more than the nations around you...Indeed I even I am against you and will execute judgements in your midst, in the sight of the nations around you. I will do among you what I have never done and the like of which I will never do again, because of all your abominations."
This is staggering verse of scripture. This is the reason why the Third World War will soon break out starting in the Middle East and involving Israel. God will allow her to come under severe judgement. Israel will soon be involved in a terrible war, but God will cause the Jew to turn to Him in this shaking.
God will not allow Israel to be destroyed and will bring her to victory, but only after some serious damage has been done and His plans have been achieved.
The above verse is shocking. The verse below is as shocking, but on the positive side!
Micah 7:8-9 "Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; When I fall I will arise; When I sit in darkness, the Lord will be a light to me. I will bear the indignation of the Lord, because I have sinned against Him, until He pleads my case and executes judgement for me; He will bring me forth to light and I will see His righteousness."
The pride of people and the nations:
Jeremiah 50:32 "The most proud shall stumble and fall...I will kindle a fire in his cities and it will devour all around him."
Isaiah 2:12,19 "For the day of the Lord of hosts shall come upon everything proud and lofty, upon everything lifted up and it shall be brought low." "They shall go into the holes of the rocks and into caves from the terror of the Lord and the glory of His majesty, when He arises to shake the earth mightily."
Isaiah 13:9 "Behold the Lord comes, cruel with both wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate and He will destroy the sinners from it."
Isaiah 29:14 "I will again do a marvellous work among this people; for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hidden."
These verses above are frightening indeed for the unbeliever and the proud and arrogant. I've said a thousand times, that pride always blinds you and here we have clearly spelt out...right out of the mouth of God!
There is a very easy way to get rid of all of this ugly, heavy stuff. Just cast down the Bible. Throw it out and reject it. That way you can carry on blindly serving the god of this world. You can carry on having fun, fun and more fun, even 'good' Christian fun. It will bring the judgement of God upon you. It will make your eternal position worse.
There is safety in humility and surrender before our great God Lord and King.
The pride of the church:
"The gates of hell will not prevail against the church" says the Bible. But the very same Bible points out that not all of those who claim to be "the church" are the church. There is one section of the church that will be forever safe. It is the church that trusts supremely in our Lord and His word. The gates of hell will not prevail against this church.
Only the church of Philadelphia in the book of Revelation chapter three is completely commended with not one word of condemnation. This is the church that is told: "He opens the door and no one shuts." This church is assessed by God and told that it "keeps My word." This church is commended for having "little strength" (That would be self -orientated strength) This church has the "Key of David" which is referred to in Isaiah 22 as the "key that opens the door to Jerusalem" meaning that this church has a Messianic flavour.
Most of the other churches assessed by God in Revelation chapters two and three are in trouble in one way or another. They are not safe. One church is promised that it will "spewed out" of God's mouth. Another is promised by God "I will kill your children (offspring of the church) with death". Another is told that it will be cast into "great tribulation."
A great deal of the professing church of the this era will be swept away in judgement. They will fall for the devil's end time counterfeit plans. The Bible declares: "The love of many will grow cold". We are in the time period that is just starting to see the "great apostasy" of the church.
Cain and Able were brothers. They were a type of the true and false church. Cain's religion produced the first murderer and is a type of the church that has and will kill the true saints. Abel's religion, produced the first martyr.
In all of this there is tremendous safety, peace and security...but it's only for those who humble themselves into God's plans and will. All pride and rebellion to God will come tumbling down. The answer is to simply give up resisting God. Give up following the ways of the world and its god.
Pride and self assurance are the most dangerous qualities anyone can possess!
James 4:6 "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble."
The battle for the spirits and souls of people is intensifying. The battle against God's will is intensifying.
The story of David and Goliath is full of symbolism. David is a type of Israel and of Christ, while Goliath is a type of the world and of antichrist. Goliath had was six cubits high, had six pieces of armour, and his sword was six weights of silver. This identifies him with the number of Satan which is 666. This also identifies him with the world system of whom Satan is it's god. Goliath was large and from a large army. He had the odds stacked in his favour. David was small in comparison, but with God at his side, he defeated the much larger enemy.
Within the story of John the Baptist we see another type. He was God's prophet of things to come. He had his head taken off. It did no damage to Gods plans.
The world and its god, Satan will run headlong into the God of glory soon. This collision will cause the greatest shaking the world has ever seen. It will be a real event, but will also take place in the spirits and souls of all people.
The days are dangerous now, but they will become a lot worse soon.
John 9:4 "I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is still day; the night is coming when no one can work."
The greatest part of this shaking and the reasons for it relate to God's plans for the Jew, Israel and Jerusalem. This is all part of the way God will bring peace to the world, but it will all explode first, due to the playing out of the great spiritual conflict.
God has a plan and so does the devil and his world. Guess which one will persevere and prevail?
Psalm 105: 8-11 "He has remembered His covenant forever, the word which He commanded for a thousand generations, the covenant He made with Abraham and His oath to Isaac, and conformed it to Jacob for a statute, to Israel for an everlasting covenant, saying to you I will give the land of Canaan as the allotment of your inheritance.
Genesis 13:15 "For all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever."
Psalm 129: 5-8 "All who hate Zion will be put to shame."
Heaven or hell:
Pride is a prison of your own making. It will never set you free. It feeds off itself. "Be careful that the light that is in you is not really darkness" says the Bible. God always resists the proud. It cause blindness and deception. The end of all pride is hell.
Humility is the characteristic of those destined for heaven. Not only is the destiny heaven, but humility sets one truly free now. Of course humility needs to be combined with truth, but humility gives sight. With a humble heart truth is easy to find and walk in.
Here is a painting by Mikhail Turovsky. He was born in 1933 and is well known for his images of suffering during the Second World War. Here is one of them. we are now close to the Third World War.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace!
