This verse, below was given to me by our Lord in December last year to give to you as the crowning verse for 2020. This was just before the corona-virus became a world pandemic:
The heading is, “Babylon humiliated.” End-time Babylon is the modern world system:
Isaiah 47:10-11 “You have trusted in your wickedness. You have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you; You have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one besides me.’ Therefore evil shall come upon you and you shall not know from where it arises, and trouble shall fall upon you. You will not be able to put it off, and desolation shall come upon you suddenly.”
1 Thessalonians 5:6 “Let us not sleep as others do, but watch.”
1 Peter 5:8 “Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”
Matthew 24:43 “Know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into.”
Ephesians 5:13-14 “All things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Awake, you who sleep; arise from the dead, and Messiah will give you light.”
2 Timothy 4:8 “There is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord the righteous Judge, will award to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.”
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.
3rd July 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Watchmen what do you see?
Masses are in the salvation firing lines. This will include masses of prodigals and backslidden Christians. Entire churches will awaken to end-time Bible prophecy.
At the same time many, specifically those who are not, and come against being Spirit filled, will be taken over by strong and powerful deceptive spirits and fall away. They will join with the spirit of the antichrist and false spirits of the ecumenical, interfaith, one-world order system.
As the world shakes, more and more will look for stability – and find it in our Lord. The shaking is about to become extremely severe and masses will seek the truth, but because their hearts are not repentant and right the truth will not find them.
Many will go with what they believe is truth, but the truth-teller may be a fraud to begin with.
There are some out there presenting wonderful truth, rightly applied, but they are few and far between. When you encounter them, value and treasure them, and pray for them to continue.
As spiritual darkness descends, as prophesied in numerous passages, the entire world will be engulfed in the darkness of encroaching sin and wickedness. In very thick darkness light can’t penetrate and the light merges with darkness. (Luke 11:35)
Many times I have wandered through various wildlife areas at night with a torch. You need to watch carefully where you are going. You need to be a watchman alright!
Sometimes as you shine the torch, it picks up the shining, glowing eyes of a silent animal deep in the bush. You don't know if its a friend or foe, just from the glowing eyes.
If the torch doesn’t shine truly and brightly, how can you see and watch where you are going?
I know that many ministers and prophecy teachers read The Prophetic Scroll, and judging by what a lot of them have said, there is a growing unity in the message amongst us. That would be like many together, each with a torch, shining together in the darkness.
At the end of the day, the light of God’s truth is to guide us into the bright shining eternal glory of heavenly light, with an abundant entrance.
You don’t want to just scrape into heaven by the skin of your teeth, smelling like hell.
So, the important job of the watchman’s torch is to shed light on the right way and expose the wrong way. People’s lives are affected and changed by these things.
Not too long ago some so-called watchmen, under the curse of Nibiru taught their deceived followers that the planet Nibiru was about to strike the earth and destroy it. This was taught by the Revelation 12 –sign teachers.
Some today teach the most outrageous, dangerous, Satan-rooted heresy like: Modern day Jews can never repent because they are cursed, because a small group of them stoned Steven nearly 2000 years ago!
Disagreement amongst watchmen detracts and harms the message and Bible prophecy. It means some are not hearing from the Spirit of God, who has a unified message of pure truth. Too many watchmen are full of pride, watching through blinded eyes. They need to get out of ministry!
Agreement amongst watchmen adds weight and substance to the message. Agreement highlights and shines on the truth, confirming and establishing it.
Pride is a watchman’s light-killer. It dims the light and confuses it with the darkness. Pride in a Christian minster is terribly dangerous. It deceives him with his self-importance. It blinds him to the light.
2 Corinthians 11:13-14 “Such are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Messiah. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.”
The angel of light, Satan is in the darkness of the night! “Watchmen, watchmen, what of the night? “ (Isaiah 21:11) Watchman, are you looking into the night with your light? Do you see what is of the “angel of light?” Do you watch, see and warn?
Jeremiah 6:17-18 “I set watchmen over you, saying, ‘listen to the sound of the trumpet.’ But they said. ‘We will not listen!’ Therefore hear O nations and learn O congregations, what will happen. Hear O earth! I am bringing disaster on this people, the fruit of their own schemes (thoughts), because they have paid no attention to My word and have rejected My instruction.”
In these above we see the sad reaction of the world to God's warning. They rejected it. That is exactly where we are today. But it’s quite another thing, and just as tragic when the watchman speaks a lot of hogwash and the people think he speaks the truth.
The most valuable torch-battery that a watchman can have is the cross of Calvary. It creates the power to give pure light, and strips out pride and its error.
The wonder of the cross is that it shows you that you are not valuable and precious, but that you are a dying rat with rabies, deserving of death. Then it raises you and gives you great eternal value.
Today we have a flood of ministers, ministries and so-called watchmen who are cross-less. They are of “another Jesus”. They are Spirit-less.
Their goal is your material wealth, so that they can benefit from it too. They teach self-improvement, self-esteem, self importance, all without the cross, which kills self. The speak the rat language.
They are not enemies of Christ. They are enemies of the cross of Christ! (Philippians 3:18) So they actually end up with “another Christ”!
The power of the cross and resurrection now works from inside your heart, where once the rat and blind bat lived.
Only stupid watchmen use weak, half-flat batteries in their torch. In their blindness they set themselves up as God’s editor, removing all the hard sayings and severity from their doctrine, producing spineless, worldly, weak counterfeit Christians.
It’s always the same people that get caught in big errors. They seem to attract all the rubbish. There’s a reason for that. It is because of their hidden pride, and because they have let in a spirit of error and have not cast it out or repented. It comes back seven times worse.(Matthew 12:45)
You need to be very careful and diligent with your faith. Examine it and guard it, and always move forward in total surrender to all truth, and actively avoid the error out there.
We see the two white horse riders contrasted in the Bible. Revelation 6:2 sees the rider on a white horse, given a crown (corona) and with a bow but no arrow, symbolising deception. Then we see God’s white horse rider at the end of the Revelation.
Revelation 19:11-14 “I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse, and He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war...and the armies in heaven clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.”
Notice the accompanying riders! The antichrist rider flies onto the stage with three other riders of the apocalypse - riders of deception, wielding death, destruction, and chaos.
Now notice our Lord on a white horse flying out of heaven with great armies of saints in fine linen, on white horses. The fine linen is the “righteousness of the saints”. (Revelation 19:8) Guess who these are? That’s us.
But note that we all return to make righteous war with our Lord. Since when do you go to war dressed in fine white linen? It is the final victory – the victory of fine righteousness over dirty wickedness! – Glory, I say!
Note well that at the marriage supper it is the church who are in fine while linen. Note well that as soon as dinner is over the white horse rider and the entire church still in white linen ride magnificently out of heaven at the Second Coming.
What amazing proof of a pre-tribulation rapture!!
Edition 114. March 30th 2012
The David and Goliath prophetic parallel.
News events and comment.
►God willing, in the next edition I'll share some shocking facts with you on Easter and some wonderful facts on Passover.
● As said before, it's risky business trying to make news events fit into Bible prophecy. There are many things we can't be absolutely sure of until they occur, but also many things we can be sure of. Current news events in the Middle East are most certainly all forerunners to the tribulation period and the coming of our Lord and Messiah. We are in the countdown phase!
●The Obama administration refuses to call Jerusalem Israel's capital. (State dept. briefing)
●A number of people attending a recent Hezbollah rally were asked by a journalist what their biggest dream was. Most said: "To see Israel wiped off the map!" (CNBC)
The David and Goliath prophetic parallel.
The Bible is full of amazing parallels, which are far too incredible to be coincidences. from time to time I'll share some more of these with you, but for now let's have a look at some Bible stories and their shocking prophetic relationship and significance for our day.
The fateful giant Goliath
If you are using the New International Version (NIV) of the Bible, don't bother reading on. The NIV removes David from this story, changing the entire meaning and the prophetic significance. (See editions 110 and 111 for more on the NIV dangers)
The story of David and the Philistine giant, Goliath has many powerful parallels for us today.
Here is the story: 1 Samuel 17:14-58
Goliath has an ill-fated 666 connection.
Six is the Biblical number of man under sin and 666 is the number relating to the antichrist.
He was six cubits tall, had six pieces of armour and his sword was six hundred shekel of iron. (666)
Interestingly the Christian's armour has seven pieces. (Ephesians 6:14-18) Seven is the number of spiritual perfection.
What's in a name?
The word 'Philistine' (Strong's H6430) means 'immigrant' or 'migrant'.
►The word 'Palestinian' is a transliteration of the name Philistine! The David and Goliath story relates prophetically to Israel and the Palestinians today.
The name 'Palestinian' in Greek is 'Peleshet', which means 'dividers' or 'migrant invaders'. This word is found numerous times in the Bible which in English is translated Philistine.
Obviously there is a strong connection between the original Philistines and the modern Palestinians.
Neither the Philistines nor the Palestinians were born of Israel. They had no common descent. They are of different Arab decent. Arafat for example was born in Cairo, Egypt. In fact there is much proof of some Palestinian ancestry originating in Syria. Some of them came from nearby islands including Crete and some from surrounding Arab nations. The Philistines settled in the Gaza areas and were constantly at war with the children of Israel, the most famous conflict being that of Goliath and his armies against David and his army.
The first original name for Judea was Canaan and not Palestine as is claimed.
There was never ever an independent state called Palestine. This simply means that the immigrant Palestinians are the occupiers and not the Israelis. Besides, God in no uncertain terms, gave the whole land of Israel to the Jewish people in an eternal covenant!
Genesis 17:8 "Also I give you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan as an everlasting possession..."
This eternal covenant is also spoken of in Genesis 13:15. Genesis 15:18. Genesis 28:4. Genesis 48:4. Exodus 13:11. Exodus 32:13 Jeremiah 25:5. and many more.
And if you still think it's not an eternal covenant, here's the end of the story:
Amos 9:14-15 "I will bring back the captives of My people Israel. They shall build the waster cities and inhabit them. They shall plant vineyards and drink wine from them. They shall also make gardens and eat fruit from them. I will plant them in their land and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord your God."
It's interesting to note that Mr 666 - Goliath, stood in Gaza. He had intentions to conquer and occupy the land of Israel. He was an immigrant invader.
By the way, most Muslims today believe 666 is a holy and good number.
'Goliath' means 'shameless' or 'splendour' The word relates to human pride and arrogance.
Goliath came from "Gath" (1 Samuel 17:4) This word means "winepress". This has Armageddon connotations! The battle took place at Shohoh (also called Socoh) which means "shut in" This is in an area of ancient Judah and not in Gaza itself. Israel in many respects is "shut in" by God. There're many analogies that spring to mind, like Noah being "shut in" to the ark of God's protection.
The wider area where the battle took place was called the valley of Elah (1 Samuel 17:3) "Elah" is one of the ancient Hebrew words for an oak. It's also associated with "Elon" or "Alon" meaning "acorn". Out of a small acorn comes a big oak tree. The oak is associated in many places with Israel's repentance in times of threat. This is pointing to the time period we're in now.
The David and Goliath story culminates with the death of Goliath, but the threats all started 40 days before. 40 is a type of trial, probation and chastisement.
When the Philistines saw that Goliath was truly dead, with his head cut off, they turned and fled. Interestingly, Goliath's head was displayed at a place that became known as the "place of the skull' in Jerusalem. This was where our Lord was crucified.
The modern day Philistines are the Palestinians and they are giants simply because the whole world is behind them! Also bear in mind that the Palestinians have the whole giant Muslim world behind them.
Above is the Hezbollah flag (yellow) the fist clothed in the Palestinian flag and the flag of Israel.
Almost all of the Palestinians have settled in Israel in the last 150 years.
There are many British people now settled in the US. Can you really say that the US must now become a British state because there are a bunch of British settlers in the country? Of course not.
Please be aware that the real motive of Satan working through the Palestinians is to claim all of Israel as their own. The main reason for this is because God said the opposite
A slingshot guided by our Lord in the hand of His servant brought down the Philistine giant. A slingshot in the hand of God's enemy, trying to bring down the giant of Biblical prophecy, is useless.
Zechariah 9:6 "A mixed race shall settle in Ashdod (next to Gaza) , and I will cut off the pride of the Philistines."
Isaiah 8:7-10 "The Lord brings up over them the waters of the river strong and mighty, the king of Assyria (modern day Syria) in all his glory...Be shattered O you peoples and be broken in pieces ...take counsel together, but it will come to nothing...for God is with us."
The ill-fated Hamas organisation and people:
The name Hamas is found in Obadiah 10. In Hebrew it's the word Chamac meaning "violence" Hamas is simply the English transliteration of Chamac.
So, here we have an organisation born and bred in violence, living in violence now and will ultimately meet a violent end.
Here is the motto of the Muslim Brotherhood: "Allah is our objective; the Quran is our constitution, the prophet is our leader; Jihad (mass murder) is our way and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations."
The Muslim Brotherhood is a deceptive so-called peace loving organisation made up of mostly Palestinians. Their goal is to unite Palestinian causes and take over Israel finally.
Slings, stones, swords, bows, arrows and axes:
David will again destroy Goliath in these end times. Israel backed by God's plan of action will finally bring down the Palestinians backed by the god of this world. The image above shows the Palestinians using slingshots, but without God's guiding hand they are useless.
Jeremiah 51:20 "You (Israel) are My battle axe and weapons of war; For with you I will break the nations in pieces; with you I will destroy kingdoms."
Jeremiah 50:23 "How the hammer of the whole earth has been cut apart and broken..."
Isaiah 10:5 "Woe to Assyria, the rod of My anger and the staff in whose hand is My indignation."
Isaiah 34:5 "For My sword shall be bathed in heaven; indeed it shall come down on Edom (Arabs), and on all the peoples of My curse for judgment."
Isaiah 41:15 "Behold I will make you (Israel) into a new threshing sledge (implement) with sharp teeth..."
Zechariah 9:13-15 "For I have bent Judah My bow, fitted the bow with Ephraim and raised up your sons O Zion against your sons O Greece and made you like the sword of a mighty man. Then the Lord will be seen over them and His arrow will go forth like lightning. The Lord will blow the trumpet and go with whirlwinds from the south. The Lord of hosts will defend them; they shall devour and subdue with slings and stones..."
Do you think the world has learnt anything from David's victory over Goliath? Of course not. Have a look at the amazing parallels in these verses.
1 Samuel 17:46 "This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand and I will strike you and take your head from you and this day I will give the carcases of the Philistines to the birds of the air and the wild beasts, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.
Ezekiel 38:23 "Thus I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the Lord."
Revelation 19:17 "...to all the birds, come and gather together for the supper of the great God, that you may eat the flesh of kings, captains and mighty men..."
David is a type of Israel and of our Christ.
David represents Israel, but also represents Christ in many respects. Goliath and the Philistines represent the Palestinians backed by the whole world.
Goliath also represents the antichrist. Isn't it interesting that a stone brought down Goliath. In the book of Daniel we see the great image representing the world's kingdoms also being brought down by a stone! Except this "stone" striking the giant is none other than Christ Himself at the second coming!
Now here's an amazing fact:
Goliath is linked to 666. The golden image of Nebuchadnezzar is also linked to 666. Daniel 3:1 "Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was sixty cubits and it's width six cubits..."
The image represents the kingdoms of the world through the ages, with the feet mixed with iron and clay representing the final end-time period. The stone hitting the feet and bringing down the entire image is none other than our Lord Himself at His return. David's sling brought down one man and caused the Philistines to flee. This stone will bring down the whole world!
There are other 666 connections to Nebuchadnezzar's dream image in various languages, which I won't go into now.
Here's the parallels:
►Goliath / Daniel's image / Palestinians / antichrist / world destroyed.
►David / Israel / Christ / Millennium
Do you want to be so stupid as to support the Palestinians? Guess who will be brought down in the end? I'm not a gambling man, but the odds are 100 to 0 against the Palestinians.
The odds are also 100 to 0 in favour of our Lord bringing down the whole world system at His second coming.
The meaning of all of this for you is: be prepared to reject the giant of worldly persuasion in support of the devil's plans. Be prepared to stand with and for out great King...be prepared!!
A collection of verses dealing with the modern David and Goliath conflict.
Ezekiel 32:6 "I will also water the land with the flow of your blood; even to the mountains and the river beds, will be full of you. When I put out your light, I will cover the heavens and make its stars dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud and the moon shall not give her light."
Ezekiel 35:5-6 "Because you have an ancient hatred and have 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 say the Lord God, I will prepare you for blood, and blood shall pursue you."
Ezekiel 36:2-5 "Thus says the Lord God: "Because the enemy has said of you, Aha! The ancient heights have become our possession...Therefore thus says the Lord God: "Surely I have spoken in My burning jealousy against the rest of the nations and against all Edom, who gave My land to themselves as a possession, with whole hearted joy and spiteful minds, in order to plunder its open country."
Zechariah 12:2-3 "Behold I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; and all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it."
Zechariah 9:5-6 "...Gaza also shall be very sorrowful ...the King shall perish from Gaza. A mixed race shall settle in Ashdod, and I will cut off the pride of the Philistines."
Joel 3:1-2 "For behold in those days and at that time, when I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgement with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations. They have also divided up My land."
Amos 1:3-6 "For three transgression of Damascus, and for four, I will not turn away it's punishment, because they have threshed Gilead with implements of iron...For three transgressions of Gaza and for four, I will not turn away its punishment, because they took captive the whole captivity, to deliver them up to Edom. But I will send a fire on the wall of Gaza...and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish says the Lord God."
Understanding who Israel is and what the Bible has to say prophetically about Israel, changes your life's focus and allows you to see many things with new eyes.
I recently listened to a sermon by some preacher on David and Goliath. His entire thesis was that you can overcome the giants in your life. Although that's obviously true, he missed the entire prophetic message in the story, just as the world at large has learnt nothing and is missing the entire message.
The Palestinians are on a collision course with the rock of God's will, just as Goliath was. The world will support the loser, because it's god, Satan is the ultimate loser!
Exciting times...I would think!
Psalm 83:4 "They have taken crafty counsel against your people and consulted together against your sheltered one. They have said, "Come let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more."
Micah 4:11-13 "Now also many nations have been 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 shall gather them like sheaves for the threshing floor. Arise and thresh O daughter of Zion..."
Here's a painting by Rubens depicting David about to behead Goliath.
The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace
Shalom and grow in grace!
