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.

Images of Israel:
For a change, especially at this time, I’ve designed this edition as a visual representation and tribute to the Israeli Defense Force.
The purpose of this edition is again to show my own personal rock-solid predilection in favour of God’s word for Israel and to identify myself and the Prophetic Scroll unambiguously with God’s word in this regard.
Amos 9:15 “I will plant them (Jews) in their land, and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord your God.”
Psalm 129:5 “Let them all be confounded and turned back who hate Zion.”
Some quick definitions that I will refer to:
●Déjà vu, means, “already seen” or that “Been there before” feeling.
●Jamais vu, means, “Never seen before”, or “not recognised.”
●Presque vu, means, “almost seen” or, “on the tip of recognition.”
All my life, even before I had been to Israel, I was in the “Presque vu” camp. I knew all about Israel. My mother had brought me up with a love for Israel and the Jews. I could always “see” Israel in my mind’s eye.
Then when I went there the first time, I had a dramatic experience. I can only describe it as a powerful Déjà vu. I had the sense that that I had been there before and everything was familiar. On top of this Déjà vu, I had a powerful Presque vu feeling as well, realising that I was on the edge of eternity, looking towards many powerful things to come.
I realised pretty quickly that I was seeing with a spiritual eye and seeing things from God’s point of view. Especially around Jerusalem, I had a powerful sense of excitement. I saw in my mind’s eye, terrible war, conflict and destruction. I “saw” the pride and resulting blindness of the Jews.
I “saw” the “eternal hatred” of the Arab people for the Jews. I saw their jealousy and their regret that they had “sold their birthright for a meal”.
In my mind’s eye I looked back to our Lord looking over Jerusalem with tears in His eyes, for His people who had rejected Him and what it would take to bring them to repentance.
Then just as quickly my fertile mind was in the future and I “saw” our Great King of Majesty, retuning to these dusty streets to welcome His now- repentant people, but not after great calamity, war and revolt.
The problem is that too many people in this world have only “Jamais vu” in their heads and can’t see or recognise anything at all relating to Israel. Their deceived teachers have taught them nothing of the Lord’s compassion for His people in the past and their dramatic coming to salvation in the near future.
Some people are just on the edge, in a world of “Presque vu” – on the tip of recognising God’s great plans for Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews.
The big enemy of Presque vu and Déjà vu is “Jamais vu” as perpetrated by the world’s mass media. They are the true enemies of God and friends of the world. As such they can’t see any of God’s plans for Israel. Their job is to inform the people, but because of their blindness, they do so with error, satanic prejudice and miss-information.
Israel’s journey has been like no other – it is almost at its most magnificent and dramatic conclusion! It’s been a journey of rebellion, obedience, love, punishment through wars, with all the odds stacked against her. But God has been there and still is there for her.
So with this in mind, I want to present and share with you some images of Israel in conflict now. These have been taken by some top press photographers. They reveal times of gravity, severity and drama.

A tribute to the girls of the Israeli Defence Force:
Israel, be strong and courageous, the near future is going to see intensifying conflict. Satan will turn up the heat as he sees you open your eyes to your Messiah of Glory – Yeshua.
These are dramatic days of destiny and the unfolding of God’s plans and the attacks of the devil.
A tribute to the steadfastness and glory of Hashem, our God of glory:
Zechariah 8:13 “It shall come to pass that just as you were a curse amongst the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you, and you shall be a blessing. Do not fear, let your hands be strong.”
Obadiah 1:10 “For your (Esau – a type of the modern Palestinians) violence against your brother Jacob (Jews) shame shall cover you, and you shall be cut off forever.”
Genesis 15:18 “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river Euphrates.”
Genesis 17:7-8 “I will establish My covenant between Me and you (Abraham) and your descendants for an everlasting covenant, also I will give to your descendants the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan as an everlasting possession and I will be their God.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
