18th September 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Watch the watchmen:
But first: Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s prayer meeting, “The Return” will be held on the Washington Mall, Washington DC, on the 26th September. This day is known as Shabbat Shuvah. Interestingly the Bible reading for the day is, “Return O Israel, to the Lord your God.”(Hosea 14:2-10 Micah 7: 18-20 Joel 2:15-27) It’s all centred on a global call for the church to return to the ways of God, and for Israel’s return to Messiah.
Today is the beginning of Rosh Hashanah / Feast of Trumpets, depending on the sighting of the new moon. ●This is NOT the rapture time and start of the tribulation.
The current peace efforts between Israel and some Arab nations is NOT the final antichrist peace deal - not by any means. What they are is incremental peace efforts.
This is NOT the “peace and safety, then sudden destruction” verse coming about. That verse relates to the Daniel 9:27 peace deal and the tribulation.
But these things collectively are important in that they present a new dawn for the Middle East. The knock-on effects and influence of these peace efforts are causing others to want to jump on the band wagon too.
Because these are such critical and dangerous times, this is a more important time than ever to be led correctly by men of God who are led by the Spirit and have a history of accuracy and stability. There are many amongst the riff raff.
So many wannabe watchmen and teachers are leading people astray with inaccurate, wrong pronouncements. Some are so outrageous! A watchman of the Lord is not one who watches for possibilities. He knows where to look and what to watch for and is led by the Spirit of God, therefore he is right.
I was given some “100% for sure” information in charts and numbers and various things as to why this would be the rapture time – for sure 100%! It didn’t sit right. When checking it out myself nothing added up!
Because a blind, always-wrong watchman says something is a sign; that does not make it so, by any means.
Being wrong destroys your authority and credibility, and damages the prophetic word and the faith of others, especially new believers.
Being wrong on major biblical things means one thing for sure – absolutely: You have not heard from God and you speak your own opinions.
The Spirit led teacher / watchman will have a history of godly stability and is therefore trustworthy.
Discernment is more critical than ever in the face of fast growing deception.
Ezra 3:13 (Temple rebuilt) “The people could not discern the noise of the shout of joy from the noise of the weeping of the people...”
Error becomes an immovable mountain if not dealt with, because it is formed and secured on the pillar of pride.
Spirit led, and inspired knowledge, understanding and wisdom endures and produces godly fruit.
One way to know a false teacher: When brought to correction, they will turn on you because you won’t join them in propping up their pride!
The Spirit of God in your heart is the umpire. He brings peace when you are on the right track. But you need the baptism of the Spirit. If not your umpire is you, yourself.
The condition of the end-time church:
There is a powerful prophetic message for the end-time church hidden in the messages to the seven churches in Revelation 2 & 3. They were seven historic churches. All seven contain truth for us, but prophetically, they also plot the course of church history.
The first three churches, Ephesus, Smyrna and Pergamos speak of the times gone by. The last four plot the course of the end time church and run concurrently. They are Thyatira, representing the Catholic and other orthodox churches. (They are cast into the tribulation) Sardis is the church that has a “name to live but is dead”. They are told that Lord will come upon them as a thief and they won’t know when! This represents the denominational Spirit-less churches. (With a few exceptions) Then comes the glorious church – the church of Philadelphia. They have the key of David, opening the doors to the Jews. (Isaiah 22:22) This church keeps the word and is promised to be kept out of the tribulation. Finally we have the lukewarm church of Laodicea, which is spiritually blind. God “vomits them out of His mouth.” “Laodicea”: Strong’s G2993, “Laodikeia” From two root words: ‘Laos’ = people and ‘Dike’ =Ruling. This is the people ruled” or “people/self opinionated church.
The pictures below show all that remains of Laodicea today. The Spirit of God flew away from this church and God spat them out of His mouth. (Revelation 3:16) The pillars still standing represent truth, but all else is gone.
1 Timothy 3:15 (Amp) “You know how people must conduct themselves in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and stay – the prop and support of the truth.”
So, what we see here is a very powerful and accurate picture of the end-time church. Some of it is the walking dead. Some are a horror of evil. Some are cast into the tribulation, spat out and condemned. And right in the midst is the church who keeps and loves the word and is pro-Israel.
Bear in mind that there is a terrible, tragic church and a glorious, growing powerful church side by side in these days. Don’t get tunnel vision for just one side of the coin.
The Bible speaks of a great end-time revival (the latter rain) in the last days. (Joel 2:23, Hosea 6:3) and in many other verses.
A major prophetic mark of the times is increasing deception in the church. You can’t have increasing deception without increasing deceivers and that’s where the problem lies.
Satan used deception to try to stamp out the early church because he knew it would wreck his kingdom. Now we have the same scenario again. Sometimes you have to be severe in your dealings.
Acts 13:9-11 “Then Saul, also called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit looked intently at him and said, ‘O full of all deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all unrighteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord? And now indeed 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 upon him...”
It is most important to know prophetic things to come, but also the timing of those things, to avoid deception. You must see with spiritual eyes today.
A Spirit-led and inspired watchman / teacher is always restrained in what he sees and says. He is led by the restrainer.
We are now at the start of the new Hebrew year 5781. It will end and change to 5782 on Rosh Hashanah 2021. That is September 7th - 8th 2021. That’s a very important date!!
This year, 5781 is going to be year like no other. It’s going to be a wild time of stress, strain and pressure. But in the midst there will be islands of peace amongst the pillars of truth.
The good news is that we are on the verge of great revival. We are seeing it in many nations of the east. Of course there will always be churches deteriorating and dying.
Many of those who have gone off into a ditch will repent and return. Many will continue to slip and slide further away.
As we enter the beginning of these wild times, I want to assure you that The Prophetic Scroll will be your place of spiritual stability and rest.
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!
