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.

●Russia warns Israel after air-strike in Damascus. (It seems Russia is the Middle East big-daddy)
●Israeli Air Force strikes Syria for the third in as many days. (The situation is escalating fast)
●Russia condemns Israel for retaliation over Hezbollah-desired land grab in Golan as tensions rise.
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah and to identify the rift, and the needed restoration. There is much in the church that needs to change before it can be fully reconciled with the Jew. Likewise, changes in Jewish thinking are also needed.
Edition 93. September 28th 2011
Is this it?
Is this it?
Please take some time to go over this edition and take in the video clips below and of course be blessed!
Is this the time for the tribulation to begin, and the rapture of the true church of the living God?
Firstly let's define what a date-setter is in the general view. It's one who says that they speak for God and the rapture will be on a particular day. Sometimes they even give an hour. Then they ask for your money. They're generally liars and thieves although some have been very sincere but simply wrong.
My position is different.
This is what I'm saying: The timing of these things is very near. Perhaps within days (maybe not). The probabilities are based on numerous portions of scripture. There is always a small chance that some of these things may be out by a little bit, so I'm making room for that in the sort of language I've been using.
I'm not setting a date, I'm saying these are the probabilities.
We are commanded to "know the time", "look", "watch", "be ready".
The verses below are a collection relating to our heart attitude in light of our Messiah soon to appear.
Psalm 84:10-11 "For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the Lord God is a sun and a shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly."
Psalm 95:6 "O come let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord God our maker."
Psalm 101:6 "My eyes shall be on the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with Me. He who walks in a perfect way he shall serve Me."
Psalm 128:1 "Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord, who walks in His ways."
Psalm 139:23-24 "Search me O God and know My heart; try me and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me and lead me in the way everlasting."
Psalm 147:6 "The Lord lifts up the humble; He casts the wicked down to the ground."
Psalm 149:4 "For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation."
2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done done in the body, according to what has been done whether good or bad. Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are well known to God..."
1 Corinthians 3:13-15 Each one's work will become manifest; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one's work of what sort it is. If anyone's work which he has built on endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone's work is burned, he will suffer loss, but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.
2 Corinthians 5:1"For we know that if our earthly house this tent (body) is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens."
John 14:2 "In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prpare a place for you."
2 Corinthians 3:18 "We all with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord."
Those, who've read through these editions know that I use the word "glory" a lot.
I've collected these definitions of the word "glory" from a number of dictionaries.
Glory: Great honour, holiness, pure, praiseworthy, pleasure, adoration. Majestic magnificent beauty and splendour. Resplendence, triumphant exaltation. Blessed, brilliant radiant beauty, high-holy honour, extreme value. To shine brightly. Peace and tranquillity.
Please take note of each of those words. This is our wonderful future!
Glory is directly related to holiness, which in itself is related to self judgement.
1 John 3:3 "Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure."
Perhaps the biggest reason why modern Christianity is a failure and has advanced the causes of Satan in the world, is because the church has stood by silently. They have befriended sin in the name of love. They teach no judgement or distinction between the holy and unholy. They have no glory.
Don't accept the watered down rubbish of modern Christendom. They've modified the cross to make it an instrument of fun. It must be allowed to kill you! In your heart is the throne of an imposter. He will keep coming back until his throne is destroyed and the throne of glory takes it's place.
Fun and self-indulgence have become a substitute for God's presence.
Holiness and humility are divine twins.
All heresy and false doctrine is rooted in pride
Psalm 25:9 "The humble He guides in justice and the humble He teaches His way."
The Kingdom of God is where His presence is and His authority is exersised!
If you live in a house full of cow dung long enough, you'll think that's normal.
Shallow shepherds produce shallow sick sheep! They've turned the King of Kings into their own servant.
Here's a quote by AW Tozer from the 1930s "The old cross slew men, the new cross entertains them. The old cross destroyed confidence in the flesh, the new cross encourages it."
See edition 14 titled "To judge or not to judge"
We are headed for indescribable glory, but only those that are in the family of God and have accepted the finished work of the cross will be there.
All of this is coming soon.
Here are some wonderful, inspiring, glorious clips, with beautiful visuals and quality sound, sit back turn your volume up...enjoy!
What if we're all wrong?
That's quite possible. I can't speak for others, but I have no ulterior motives. I'm presenting results of watching, studying and praying. If this is not the start of the tribulation and you have cleaned up your life and moved forward with our Messiah, what have you lost? ...You have gained greatly.
Someone asked me what I was doing in light of the soon coming of our Lord. I said, praying, repenting and I'm writing and publishing a new edition and I've gone out and bought a real big cheesecake. As in the video clips above, I have mixed emotions. I'm filled with excitement but also great fear.
I'm still brushing my teeth, but I wont buy new shoes now.
If this is not the time for the start of the tribulation period, it's very near.
There's a great danger in saying with the end time scoffer..."Where is the hope of His coming, everything will carry on as normal." (2 Peter 3:3-4) But now that we're in this time, I find myself thinking the same thing (without the scoffing) I've been looking for reason to be wrong and only found more that this is the time!
Please hear my heart. It is absolutely pure towards you. My entire motivation is for your benefit.
There may well be a chance that the various calendar changes over time may play a role and we will be wrong, but I don't think God want to catch us out unaware, that's not His style.
The Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah) is almost upon us.
●It's also known as the feats of the blowing of Shofar
●It's also know as: "Jacobs Trouble". (This is a term for the seven year tribulation period.)
●It's also know as: The awakening trumpet blast. (This relates to the salvation of the Jews in great numbers.)
●It's also know as: The day of judgement. (This relates to the tribulation period as well)
●It's also know as: The day of the opening of books (the believers reward)
●It's also know as: The hidden day. (The only feast which begins on the sighting of the new moon, therefore its exact starting time is unknown.)
●It's also know as: The day the gates are opened. (Relates to rapture)
●It's also know as: The day of the Messiah's wedding and coronation. (Relates to believers in heaven)
This feast the next of the seven to be fulfilled. The first three were fulfilled exactly on the day. The final three will be fulfilled the same way.
There is widespread agreement that the tribulation period will begin on a Feast of Trumpets.
Now is the time to get desperately serious about the things of God. We need to reject the word of the world and it's ministers and elevate the word of God.
I recall going through a stage in my life where I would get a photograph of myself, put in on the floor and stand on it, while at the same time holding my Bible, arms outstretched, above my head. Then I would walk around my home in prayer with my Bible held high above my head.
For me this was an outward symbolic representation of an inner occurrence and reality, which took place in the prayer that went with this odd act. The prayerful meaning was the dethroning of self and the elevation of God's word above every aspect of my life and my own word.
I don't know how many times I did that. It was a huge step and process in identity change. At first it was an identity crisis, later it was simply a new identity with no more argument against God word and ways.
It's natural to have a fear of death, but what's needed is a fear of life. The only way you can really fear having a life going the wrong way is by knowing and welcoming God's word in all it's ways.
Fear of the Lord is peace, security, strength, satisfaction and stability.
Psalm 19:9 "The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever. The judgements of the Lord true and righteous altogether."
The mark of the humble and the one that fears the Lord is essentially a desire to have a life honourable to our Lord at any cost!
The testimony of the modern church is shocking indeed. As an institution it is greatly lacking, divided and essentially a failure. Of course it's been successful in reproducing many deceived puppets.
The Catholic church, (which will be cast into great tribulation Revelation 2: 22) was responsible for the production of the dark ages. It's leaders were mass murderers. They were despised by the reformers. They realised that the Catholics were pure evil and came up with various reforms.
Calvinism is the most consolidated of the reforms all brought down into one. Their leader John Calvin was a mass murderer who refused to repent on his death bed. He hated the Jews. Is it any surprise that Calvinism simply carried over the central Jew repelling doctrines that the murdering Popes put in place to change the very character of the church so that the Jews would be kept out?
Today modern Christendom is still infiltrated by evil doctrines born in hell, designed to keep the Jew out of the church and salvation and thus fulfilling Satan's plan to delay the coming of the Lord. The coming of the Lord is associated with the salvation of the Jews as can be seen in numerous verses.
The Catholics changed the very core of the true Jewish and Gentile early church essentially to keep the Jews out. The reformers, now represented in all denominations, think that they're one up on the Catholics. Some like the Reformed church hate the Catholics, but they continue the very same pagan, occult traditions that the Catholics put in place, like Christmas and Easter.
Many of the charismaniac churches also do just the same thing too.
Thankfully there are some truly wonderful, Spirit filled and led churches that have identified themselves with the Messianic movement. The true Messianic church has broken from the evil Jew-repelling traditions like Christmas, Easter and others and returned to the true Biblical convocations of observing the Sabbath, the Feasts and the like. In other words, it is Hebraic in character and distinctly leans towards the Jew and the Gentile as one in Messiah
The answer is to return to the old ways of the Bible straight and neat! Shake off traditional churchianity!
Returning to truth is so liberating, fulfilling and joyful and will be eternally rewarding.
The reason why this is all important now is because we are on the verge of God's salvation going to the Jewish people in very large numbers.
This brings to mind a Messianic ministry with which I've been involved for many years. It's called Alon and here is the website:
The leader, Davit Ben Avi, is a true man of God with a heart and passion for the truth. Running a community-based ministry located in the mountains in a beautiful forest, full of wildlife, with numerous bases is no easy thing. He has come under much persecution, but always pushes on, always forward with our Lord.
I met him in the 1980s and have identified with him ever since. Interestingly way back then he was sold out on the Messianic, Abrahamic expression of faith, standing against the traditional church. Back then this Messianic move was still new. God had only just started to restore it after it was lost in the first few hundred years..
Having a heart after God and being willing to obey Him makes you a very distinctly different person! and gives you a Godly authority.
I've seen the ministry grow from one farm to a whole lot, all combined into one. I've seen it grow from just a few people to many hundreds, with an orphanage, a junior school, a high school, a hospice, restaurants and many businesses. Mission work is one of the ministry thrusts with regular trips to the neighbouring countries, as well to Israel, India, Egypt and others.
The Messianic character of the ministry makes it always welcoming for Jews, many who've come to salvation as a result.
I live some 400kms away with my home being the "Alon hotel" when they're in my area.
It's shocking, fearful and tremendously exciting to know that we are on the verge of eternal glory!
Jeremiah 29:13 "And you will seek Me and find Me when you seek for Me with all your heart."
Heaven or hell:
Young woman if you know our Lord and He knows you, you have a future of incredible eternal glory before you, greater than you could ever imagine. You will be forever become part of the glorious family of the living God.
Not knowing our Messiah personally will leave you in true depression, stressed out beyond belief. Once you cross the line into eternity it's too late, but right now you can still reverse your situation and becomes God's own kid. But you don't have mush time left!
Here's one of my own paintings representing the coming glory to environment. It's a mixed media collage in which I've used various layering and texture techniques.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace!
