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.

Deadly messages from antiquity:
Deadly messages from antiquity:
Daniel 2:43-44 “As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seeds of men; but they will not adhere to one another just as iron does not mix with clay. In the days of these kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to another people; it shall break in pieces and consume all those kingdoms and it shall stand forever.”
There are numerous hidden messages in antiquity that relate very much to us today. We would do well to take heed!
In this edition I want to bring to your attention some of these messages and show just how they relate to the church, the world and Israel today.
In the previous two editions I discussed how a great part of the church is going off-track fast.
The big bottom line is that God has a Church and the world has a church. The world’s church is the counterfeit, but it is the largest in number and looks good. The world’s god, Satan, his church and all its people have many common beliefs and working methods.
We must know the devices of the devil, especially now ,as the outpouring of these evil spirits is intensifying.
Many of the members of the world’s church think the jihad of ISIS, Al Qaeda, Al Shabaab, Boko Haram and other murdering Islamist terror organisations are terrible, but they are in the self- same boat. Read on and you will see just why!
Peace is the goal:
Everyone wants peace at the end of the day. People want world peace, they want peace in their lives, they want peace in relationships and if they believe in God, they want peace with Him. But there is only one way to true deep inner peace and peace with God. It is not the way of the world’s church.
Satan himself wants peace. He wants you to peacefully submit to him. He promises world peace, but he is a deceiver and liar in camouflage and disguise.
People come up with all sorts of ways to achieve peace – they always have. Many people who have given their lives for world peace will end in hell.
All of man’s efforts to build peace have and will fail. Man’s efforts must by their very nature deny God’s way to world peace. The twain shall never meet!
How is the world working for peace?
These are the big issues; obviously this all breaks down into numerous smaller issues.
The world uses its own variable-value, belief- system, world religions, good and evil to bring about ultimate peace. Let’s break this down:
►Here is the Roman god Janus (below). His two faces symbolise good and evil. His name means “Archway” and is believed to represent good and evil mixing together as the archway or bridge to world peace. (The month January is named after this god.)
Janus was also the god of war and resulting peace. Janus also represents the transition of time and the mixture of past and future. He represents the god of transition from war to peace by the fusion of good and evil. He is a powerful occult symbol.
Mixing good and evil will bring you ‘peace’ with Satan...for now!
The easy way to make evil attractive is simply to remove the Bible.
Babylon was a classical example. The people came together and tried to build a tower to God. They actually didn’t want God, but world peace, because of the violence of their day. This is symbolic of man’s works.
The original word used for “Tower” is Strong’s H4026 “Migdal”. The word means a tower or elevated stage or pulpit! There is no doubt that the tower of Babel was real, but according to Strong’s concordance, it has this secondary meaning.
Babylon was the place of mixture. In fact that is what the name means. It was the place of mixture of good and evil and a mix of religions, to try and achieve peace.
►The double- headed eagle.
The images above show the two-headed eagle in Babylonian times, as a symbol of the Nazis, as a symbol of the Catholic church and of the 33rd degree Free Masons. The bottom picture shows Putin entering the Kremlin for his second inauguration. Note the two-headed eagle behind him. The Kremlin is full of these symbols, which are also found in other Russian cities, as well as the official Russian coat of arms.
This ancient symbol represents the coming together of religion and the political world to produce peace.
The Roman emperor Constantine used the double headed eagle. It is also a symbol of the Jesuit order of Catholicism.
The grand end of all of this is religion, world politics, good and evil all mixed together to produce world peace. It’s like a giant witches brew!
Janus and the two-headed eagle together represent the coming together of good and evil and religion and politics. Both of these are before us again now.
Look at the Freemason logo again and note the words “Ordo Ab Chao” at the top. This is “order out of chaos” Of course it’s similar to the union of good and evil. This ‘order out of chaos’ is one of their belief systems.
“Order out of chaos” is the motto of the 33rd degree Free Masons. The two headed eagle and the slogan “order out of chaos” is also used in other new-age and New World Order organisations as well.
But what does it mean? Hitler believed and wrote about it. He believed that by creating chaos one could then easily force order onto the war-weary world. In other words it is a principle used to gain domination and control. Demoralisation leads to domination.
Many of the world’s secret organisations will use war to unify the planet and to gain political and economic control. Out of chaos comes this new world order!
Satan’s kingdom is one of disorder, so no matter how it comes about, the end of his kingdom will be chaos and not order.
Islam uses “order out of chaos” all the time. They don’t want peace. They want world- control and believe they can get it through the chaos they create. It is similar to the philosophy of “divide and rule.”
You may think that you would never support or agree with the cooperation of good and evil. O yes; so why do you support homosexuality, movies full of foul language and blasphemy. Why do you pay money to bow down to the satanic god of Hollywood and evil entertainment, and then you go to church?
There never will be a unity between good and evil. If that were possible, the cross of Messiah would have been meaningless. Those of interfaith persuasion know this: You must get rid of the cross to get unity and “peace.” In fact if you are a supporter of interfaith in any way or form, you have already got rid of the cross and you are lost in your sin and totally deceived.
Genesis 11:6 “The Lord said, ‘Indeed the people are one and they all have one language and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.”
In the verse above you can see the power of untiy! But the end of doing things man’s way brought swift destruction from God on Babylon.
Jeremiah 6:17-19 “I have set watchmen over you saying, ‘Listen to the sound of the trumpet!’ But they said, ‘We will not listen.’ Therefore hear you nations, and know O congregation, what is among them. Hear O earth! ‘Behold I will certainly bring calamity on this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not heeded My words.’”
There are none so blind as those who will not see nor none so deaf as those who will not hear. The verse above addresses just these people. Unfortunately this verse applies to every single leader of the world’s church. What an incredibly powerful verse. Note it speaks to the world and to the religions of the earth.
More messages from antiquity:
Acts 20:30 “Among yourselves men will arise, speaking perverse things to draw away the disciples after themselves. Therefore watch and remember that for three years I did not cease to warn everyone night and day with tears.”
Another classical Bible story was that of the “writing on the wall”. Because of the theft, disrespect and trivializing of the holy temple implements, God supernaturally wrote judgement on the wall. In terms of symbolism this speaks to us of the holiness of God being cast down and mixed with the world and its church. It speaks of sin coming into the holy place.
Pontifex Maximus was a title for Caesar and is now one of the titles for all popes. The word pontifex means, ‘bridge builder’ between faith and the world (pons+facere) and maximus means “greatest.” This title then means, “The greatest bridge builder between god and man.”
This title now bestowed on all the leaders of the Catholic church shows just where they are going and why you must distance yourself from the Catholic church and in fact all involved in ecumenism.
Ecumenism is centred on the creation of a world church. The World Council of Churches is in the forefront of this.
In the coming prophesied great wars, chaos and destruction will rule. Out of the smoke and stench of death a clamouring for peace and unity will emerge and Satan will be right there to oblige.
Like Nimrod in Babylonian times, a tower or bridge to God and world peace was the objective. Hitler’s desire was to create a thousand year rule of peace under the Nazis.
“The victor will never be asked if he told the truth.”
As Hitler believed the Jew stood in the way of his quest for world peace, so the true Church will always stand in the way of Satan’s quest for world control.
The quest for world peace out of the chaos of wars will be filled with the occult, evil and Satan himself.
The curse of Interfaith:
The goal is the unity of multiple faiths to produce a world of peace. It is by its very nature one with socio-economics / politics. Interfaith peace is of the world and therefore is of its god and will do the desires of its god and ultimately end with its god in judgement.
Interfaith is neutral on the sin or evil contained within other religions. Because the ultimate goal is love and world peace, how it gets there is a secondary issue. Essentially good and evil walk hand in hand in agreement.
It is only the cross and shed blood of Messiah that saves and makes us holy. The purity and holiness of the work of the cross must be side- lined in interfaith, but the evil and sinful aspects of the Christian religion like Christmas and Easter can co-exist with interfaith.
Today there are many powerful moves to create a new world interfaith religion. The most dangerous is Rick Warren and the emergent church movement.
To create and build unity amongst churches and other religions, he uses the tools and principles of visualisation. Whatever you imagine God to be, your meditation upon it will produce it. Creative visualisation is the building block of your desires! Create God in your mind and profess positive words over it. Use your mind’s eye and imagine it – you can have it. You can build a tower to God in the centre of your own life!
Actually these are the building blocks of the beast! What is missing from all of this is the cross, repentance, holiness, true righteousness and a thousand other Biblical things. In fact Warren is known for removing not only the cross from preaching, but actual physical crosses from church buildings within the emergent church group.
The churches that ignore eschatology or those that have recently removed it from their ministries like TBN, Joel Osteen and others will soon become inextricably linked into the Inter-Faith Movement.
Interfaith is a stench in the nostrils of God. It denies the work of the cross. Its fine for the world’s cross-less church.
The religions of the world coming together or even just working together for a common cause of world peace sounds good, but is born in hell. It is the spiritually gullible and blind who will fall for the devil’s trap.
The chant of the Inter-Faith movement is, “Religion is an agent of peace”. Sounds good, not so? Wrong. True Biblical religion is an agent of truth! What a huge and far reaching difference that is. (Please read the previous edition.)
The only way to peace:
What is the work of the cross? It was and is the removal of sin – that’s it. If you remove the cross from teaching and experience you are left dead in your sin. This is why multi-faith is such a curse.
The world’s love is without the cross, judgment and discipline! The world’s love is dirty and unholy. God’s love is with and through the cross, judgement and discipline. God’s love is clean and holy.
There is only one “religion”, for want of a better word, that can’t and never will fit in with the churches of the modern world. These are those of us who adhere to the exclusiveness of salvation through the blood and cross of Messiah, which separates us from all that is of the world and the evil one – including its church, religions and world orders.
The way to peace is the old fashioned way of the cross and separation.
1 Corinthians 14:33 “For God is not the author of confusion (mixture) but of peace...”
So, modern interfaith churches, these are your symbols. They are rooted in ancient paganism, the occult, mass murder, domination and control!
Today many who stick to the Bible are outcasts of the world’s church. Be careful, an internal enemy masquerading as “Christian” is often more dangerous than an external one.
“Eat this fruit and you shall have your eyes opened”, says Satan, but there is a huge and terrible price to pay for seeing things Satan’s way!
Deuteronomy 29:19 “It may not happen, when he hears the words of this curse, that he blesses himself in his heart, saying, ‘I shall have peace even though I walk in the imagination of my own heart- as though the drunkard could be included with the sober.” Vs.20 “Every curse written in this book shall settle on him.”
Perhaps one of the most powerful forces at work is that of “collective thinking,” to produce a one-world order under Satan. If you think what the masses think and what the media thinks, you are a fool in the true sense of the word.
Of course peace is better than war and it’s better to have peace with neighbours, friends, work colleagues and those around you. In cases like this wisdom might meaning yielding on certain issues, but I’m talking here more about the bigger issues of the day.
Where is world peace heading?
If you want to see where the world is headed just look at its past; history is speaking!
Ultimately it is heading for Jerusalem! Ultimately Jerusalem will be the city of peace. But it will be the city of God’s peace His way, as will all the cities of the world in that soon-coming day.
Right now we are seeing sectarian Islamic war heading away from Jerusalem towards Baghdad. We are seeing war brewing in the Ukraine and a number of other places, and Israel, ironically, is out of the picture now. Don’t hold your breath! Israel will soon blast onto the world stage with Jerusalem and the Temple Mount being the centre.
Wars are intensifying, preparing the way for “order out of chaos” You ain’t seen nuttin’ yet!
World war is coming very soon, perhaps within weeks or months. We are on the brink of new upheavals in the financial world, as well as the political and religious worlds.
Islam is preparing for its doomed Mahdi.
Revelation 12:12 “...For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows his time is short.”
God brings His order out of chaos:
God brings His order out Satan’s chaos, and destroys everything that is of Satan’s world-order in the process! True Godly order is coming soon. It is called the Millennium! Then, a thousand years down the line, the ultimate perfect, holy and truly glorious order will come about on the eternal destruction of Satan and all who are his.
The world and its church will try to produce world peace by the union of good and evil and it will fail. God brings perfection out of the eternal separation and destruction of all human good and evil.
God’s perfect order returns to perfection on the wings of Satan’s destruction.
In the process, Satan will draw billions into his kingdom and into the judgement ending in hell. God will draw many into His eternal kingdom of true peace, purity and glory forever.
For the Jew assimilation into the world is impossible. So, why does the church think it can dance with the devil in the world?
“Leave the daughter of Babylon and come out”. This phrase is mentioned ten times in the Bible. Three are to the Jews and seven to Christians.
The word “holiness” means “separation” or to be “apart from.” It means to be separate from the spirit of the world, Satan, the demonic and all such things. It means to be cleansed, set apart and different from all that has not gone through the cleansing cross of Messiah.
The great tragedy of our day is that many believe that holiness is doing what their mind decides is good. Joining all that is ungodly and unholy might seem right if the end is peace. But it is wrong.
What you must do:
2 Corinthians 10:4-5 “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for the pulling down of strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Messiah.”
●Come out and be separate.
●Making a new determined effort to seek our Lord and getting our lives lined up is always good, but what I have found often works very well for me, is to have or create a point of identity. This can be anything that acts as a point that you can always look back to or refer to as the decision time and place where this new move in your life began.
It should be something significant though. I always did something completely different or odd and then wrote it down, began a fast, or something to make it radical or out of the ordinary.
God’s order goes full circle from the Garden to the cross to the Gardens of eternity. Man’s order goes from the Garden to Satan to the flames of hell.
What is your life? What does it consist of and who has built you up? Too many are made by the media, Hollywood, celebrity and the values of the world. Their lives are a mixture of good and evil, religion and worldliness.
Isaiah 43:12 “There was no foreign god among you; therefore you are My witnesses says the Lord.”
2 Kings 17:32-34 “...Priests of the high places sacrificed in the shrines of the high places. They feared the Lord, yet served their own gods according to the rituals of the nations...to this day they continue practicing their former rituals; they do not fear the Lord...”
I took this picture in the wilds of Botswana in an area called Savuti. It’s one of my favourite places, totally wild, and full of spectacular wildlife. This was an incident where an elephant had just stopped a mock charge in front of me. I did have the Landy in gear, in case! (That’s my Hasselblad camera.) And the representation: Get out of the way of the charging evils of the age. If you want to see some more images of this amazing place click Here.
Wild 7:8 “You shall not tempt an elephant to charge you.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
