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 80. June 8th 2011
The deeper, glorious Christian life.
●See also edition 45 titled "Secret keys to spiritual success."
What a terrible thing it will be to face the horrible times we're going into without a deep knowledge of our great King and saviour Yeshua / Jesus. To know Him and be known by Him is the way to peace and joy and the knowledge of His amazing grace.
There's a very easy way to stay blinded to the need for a real active, deep relationship with our Lord and that's simply to do nothing and carry on as always.
Once you apply the cross of Christ into your life and set your heart and mind to know Him, a great awakening begins. You begin to see things in a whole new way...God's way! Radical changes begin. Evil starts to flee and visions of great glory and wonder start to dominate your life. A God-ordained identity crisis begins in every area of your life.
Victory over sin becomes much easier. Your entire life's focus changes from a 'me now' life to an outward focused life where a true genuine Biblical compassion for others takes over.
You begin to see what holiness is and what sin is. You begin to see and understand why God has, and will judge all sin and unrighteousness. You'll even see and understand why hell is a necessary creation of God to protect universal holiness.
You begin to see kingdoms in conflict, you see the war on the go in the spirit realm for the eternal lives of people. You'll see how evil works, how Satan operates.
Perhaps the most important and wonderfully devastating thing that happens when you embrace the cross, is God opens your eyes to see how much you need Him and how hopelessly lost you are without Him.
The cross is an instrument of death; as you take it up, it delivers you to death. It kills you and brings you down into brokenness and humility. It leaves you helpless and worthless. This is great enlightenment! From here God Himself begins to bring you to resurrection life; His life of victory. God will never bless you with this glorious life until He has conquered you.
Now of course, God brings us to spiritual salvation the moment the new-birth occurs, but we're talking about the salvation of the soul...the ongoing daily work in our lives.
You can't know this incredible resurrection life without the taking up your own cross willingly and dying to self and the world.. These keys to victory are conditional.
Satan operates in the life of the believer through the self or flesh nature, the world system and the demonic. You can't even see this without the destroying work of the cross in your life.
Yes our Lord paid the full price on His cross. We can't add to that. His cross positionally paves the way for us. But we must take up our cross daily. We must die daily. We must decrease so that He increases.
You can't defeat the devil or even see him and his ways in your own self effort or strength. The amazing thing is that it's impossible to live the Christian life! Nobody can live it. Our risen, resurrected Lord of glory can live this life perfectly. Paul the apostle, gives us the answer. He says..."its therefore not I that live but Christ who lives in me." So as "I decrease, He increases". This then brings me to increasing glory, victory and success.
With the power of the cross in your life you get eyes to see these things and the supernatural strength and authority to overcome the works of the devil. You quickly see the total futility of the world's ways.
Another aspect to taking up your cross is called self-denial. Self-denial outside of the kingdom is useless. That's the same as Buddhism. Self denial with God working in your life produces wonderful healthy God-created fruit. Outside of God it's pure, worthless humanism.
Self denial is not easy. It takes guts to stand against the forces of Satan in the world. But as we do it, a miracle starts to happen. It gets easier because we start seeing with new eyes...His eyes and Bible-based eyes.
The most incredible example of this is in the powerful discourse by the apostle Paul who after many years of cross bearing says; "I count all things as dung compared to the excellence of the knowledge of Him."
This is all contrary to the way of the world and also to much modern church doctrine.
Today we're in a world of superficiality, of cheap, shallow, cross-less Christianity. We're in a world of increasing evil where the church is unable to do anything about it, because it's become compromised, neutralised and forsaken the cross of Christ. Many Christians today are not enemies of Christ, but they're enemies of the cross of Christ. They are counterfeit Christians.
Yet in the midst of this evil generation our God has raised up some who are a beacon of light in the darkness.
The measure of growth:
There's a simple yet profound way of measuring or knowing if you're growing in the grace of God. Are you moving forward with our magnificent Messiah? Here's the measure:
●Do you still love the things of the world?
●Do you desire to be free from the dictates of the flesh.
●Can you see the devil at work in the good and bad in you and the world?
●Can you see and understand the brokenness produced by the cross working in you?
●Do you desire the exchanged life that come from the cross. Your life for His?
●Do you desire above all things to move forward with our Lord and to know Him more deeply?
●Do you love the pure truth of the gospel, all of it, with a growing passion?
Rightly dividing the truth.
It's important to understand that our lives are made up of three areas. These are body, spirit and soul. Many verses of scripture relate to one area and not another. We must rightly divide and apply these. Some seem to be contradictions, but they're not. They just apply to different areas of our lives.
We can call the divisions, positional truth and temporal truth. Positional relates to our spiritual position in Christ. It's all the "in Him" and "in Christ" scriptures, while temporal relates to the area of soul or self. Positional has been done for us already at the new birth. Temporal is what we have to do now.
Many get overbalanced in one area. For example the prosperity bunch don't like the temporal truth verses. Both are needed if we are to be Biblically balanced.
Here are some of the Holy "contradictions" between temporal and positional truth revealed in the Bible:
►I've come that you may have abundant life. / If you find your life you'll lose it.
►I'm alive with Christ. / I die daily
►We are new creatures in Christ. / Hate your life in the world.
►Greater is He that is in me. / In me dwell no good thing.
►We are free in Christ. / We are bond slaves of the Lord.
►I am strong in the Lord. / Death works in me.
►God so loved the world. / Love not the world.
►I can do all things thru Christ. / You can of your own selves do nothing.
Believing and applying both positional and temporal truth to the right areas of our lives is the way to victory. It's one of the great secret, powerful keys to the Kingdom. It's what we need now in these days, more than ever.
My friends, we're about to enter a time where everything that people put their trust in will be shaken. People's lives will be wrecked. Will you be ready to offer the way to victory?
The dawn of eternity
We are now very close to the dawn of eternity. The morning star has already arisen in the darkness.
What a tragedy it will be for many as they step into eternity and realise that they've stolen their lives from God and His purpose for which they were all created!
Isaiah 43: 7 "Everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes I have made him."
Many have stolen their lives for their own purposes and many have taken and given their lives to the evil manmade traditions of churchianity.
All the divisions and denominations on this earth are a result of manmade tradition. They're man's best effort. Many churches are no different to the local sports club. All manmade sectarianism will fail. In many cases it's already failed. Many church divisions are a dying dinosaur. Many are sitting ducks waiting for Satan's false prophet to empower them, fulfil his purpose, and ultimately lead them to hell.
The Kingdom of God is above division and sectarianism. It's ONE in perfection. On top of this, surprise, surprise...it has one doctrine!
●The true church of the living God is one in Christ.
●It is Messianic in character and nature. (That means it's expression is Hebraic with a heart for the Jew and the Gentile.)
●You can't join it, you can only be it.
●It will be powerful and controversial.
●It cannot be defeated.
●It will stand against the works of the devil in the world.
●It will be small in size but big in influence.
●It will uphold and preach the full gospel...all of it!
●Because it will see the coming judgement and hell itself, it will be full of deep real love, compassion and warning.
●It will offer no hiding place for those motivated by the love of money, the flesh and things that today are totally demonic.
●It will be hated by the world system and loved by many, who have a love for truth or even an awakening of that love for truth.
John 15:18 "If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of this world the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of this world it hates you".
There are many great catastrophes and monumental disasters coming very soon. The greatest catastrophe ever will be when many step into eternity and meet the Lord face to face. Do you know that our great Messiah created every single atom and molecule in your body. He create un-creatable life. He created every star and galaxy for His and our pleasure! He created you for a specific purpose. He had a plan for your life before the foundation of the earth.
Imagine the incredible shock of seeing our Lord's plan for your life, knowing that you ignored it and went your own way! You followed the crowd. You allowed group-think and group-speak to dominate you. You were a sheep alright, but the devil's sheep. You listened to the masses you did the done thing. Your life had more good than bad in it, so you think God will smile on you!
Imagine the shock of standing before our Lord who has the keys of heaven and hell in His hands and hearing Him say; "Depart from me I never knew you."
Imagine the incredible, magnificent wonder of standing before the Lion of the tribe of Judah and hearing Him say; "Well done good and faithful servant enter into the eternal Kingdom" There is so much out there in eternity that our human minds can't even imagine it!
Imagine the shock that many pastors, teachers and leaders will get when they stand before God and He says; "all you did was perpetuate manmade religion and the traditions of men, while I gave you My word and put the author in your heart!"
The most profound prophecy ever:
This website is dedicated to prophecy, but this edition speaks more to your heart. Let me tell you though, that this is the most profound gravity-filled prophecy you will ever hear. God created you for His purpose, and with a plan for His ultimate glory. Finding it, knowing it and fulfilling it is the way to a purpose filled life and one that will have rewards lasting for eternity. You can't go back and do it again! Now, this side of eternity is your only chance, but your choice will last forever!!
Don't waste your lives. Seek our Lord's purpose and plan for your life and walk in it. Just do it!
Job15:8 "Have you heard of the secret council of God, or do you limit your wisdom to yourself."
Psalm 25:4 "Show me Your ways Lord and teach me Your paths."
Isaiah 50:4..."He awakens my ear to hear as the learned."
Heaven or hell:
Young man, you are imprisoned by the teachings of your elders. Don't think that because there are many like you that you're safe. You've been led onto a road to hell. Luckily it's not a one-way road. You can repent and turn at any time, unless of course you reach the end of the road first. God's road for you will be found by you if you want to honestly search for it.
Woman you are veiled in deception. You're in a prison just like the young man next to you. You are God's enemy. Our Lord's love has a plan for you, which will set you free indeed, with wonderful eternal consequences. The cross of Christ will clean you and free you spiritually and empower you to bring others with you to glory.
We're at the dawn of eternity! This is one my own pictures which I shot at sunrise in the desert.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace!
