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.

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 220. August 13th 2014
What is really going on now?
What is really going on now?
Today the mass media is true to the voice of its slave-god, Satan, and created confusion, distortion and a host of biased lies. The world’s mass- media has and is raping you. It is destroying and preparing its worshippers for hell.
The word “journal” means “to inform”. This is not the agenda of the mass-media. It is to change you, remake you and fashion you into a world citizen.
This edition is an attack on the mass- media but is also about where we are today on the grand prophetic map. This edition is the good news of God’s truth in this day.
The wonderful world of truth and peace:
The voice of our God is the essence of truth; it is alive and full of the fruit. Did you get that? It is alive. Or should I say it has the potential to be alive in your heart. Without the life-giving Spirit at work it is nothing but a dead letter, just like the Koran, CNN, the BBC, and Shakespeare etc.
Our Master’s voice produces deep peace when applied and obeyed. It is clean and holy.
Isaiah 26:3 “You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You.”
Psalm 119:165 “Great peace have those who love your word.”
What incredible promises those are especially in this time. “Perfect peace” and “Great peace.” But I hope you see the conditions involved.
The deceptive world of lies and error:
The devil is a beautiful smooth-talker and most people receive his words without even knowing it.
You must understand the mass-media. It is alive. It’s not a living organism as such, but its spirit and god is alive. The being behind the media is an evil god backed by a host of demons. The central tool of the mass-media is deception. In most cases the journalists can’t see it themselves. They are blind puppets of their god.
To make and re-create you into a world citizen, the living media must re-program your thinking and remove from you God-created values and virtues. The living media uses the smokescreen of “This is the way of the world, which is therefore right and okay. All will be well with you if you follow us! It all seems reasonable and right.”
But with God’s word removed from society, law, education, value-systems, entertainment and the like, everything is variable and left to the god of the world to create his counterfeit world-peace.
There’s an easy way to know if you are on the right track. Do you have deep inner peace in the centre of your heart? Do you have all the fruits of the Spirit of God springing up in your life?
►If you could have world-peace now, God and Satan would have to make peace. There is more profound truth wrapped up in that statement than you will see in a long time. Of course this is a meaningless statement to most, because they can’t see either.
If you can’t see or understand your enemy after God has given you the methods and ability to operate in discernment of spirit, and spiritual warfare – you are your enemy’s victim already.
►You must understand that Satan’s end game is the deceptive counterfeit of God’s. This is world-peace! But one ends in hell and the other in world peace forever.
Surely you’re not so stupid to believe that the media wants the best for you and wants you saved, set free, holy and ready for heaven?
The media has never met their boss, Satan face to face! They will soon, but it will be too late then.
Understand that Satan’s world-peace is world domination and control with freedom and liberty gone. If you do not understand what is going on you are in danger of being deceived in a much larger way.
Objectivity, bias and persuasion:
The media is infuriating indeed. I used to pray for the media to see the truth. How wrong I was. We need to apply spiritual warfare and pray to confuse and confound their wisdom and also that people see through them. We must pray for individuals with the media to be saved and come out of the beast’s mouth.
There was a time when many nations were under God in some way or form. In that situation, the media reflected the authority above them. That has all long gone.
These issues are all spiritually charged and becoming more so!
For your spiritual health you need a reliable news source. The word of God must be above you filtering down into you. In this day, you can’t live with your head in the sand. You must be opinionated. You must take sides. If you don’t you will take the wrong side by default, God and Satan will see to it!
If you can’t see the biased agenda of the media, you are one with it and will feed off it. I know pastors who love the media. They regularly go to the movies; they love the world’s entertainment. They are blind and then presume to be doing God’s work!
Proverbs 25:26 “A righteous man who falters before the wicked is like a murky spring and a polluted well.”
Isaiah 41:11-13 “Behold, all those who were incensed against you (Israel) shall be ashamed and disgraced; they shall be as nothing, and those who strive with you shall perish...Those who war against you shall be as nothing, as a nonexistent thing. For I the Lord your God will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘fear not, I will help you.’”
How does indoctrination occur?
In most cases you need to do nothing. Just give yourself to the media – that’s it!
How does the influence of the media work? It travels from your ears or eyes or both into your head and then either hits a filter or goes right into your head and heart, becoming part of your make up. The filter is God’s word cemented by the Spirit of God in your mind and heart. It is only there if you have consciously, deliberately put it there!
Most Christians have no filter keeping the devil’s world and influence out!
Biblical prophets were not a popular bunch. In fact they were hated by some. Today those who proclaim the messages of the prophets are also not loved and for the same reason. And what is that? Well, it’s simply because prophets and teaching of Bible prophecy sheds God’s light on the darkness of the world. The end of the world’s comfort zone is the message – and people don’t like that!
Gradualism is the method. Bring in moral and virtue-change gradually and keep it up.
Satan’s prophets today are the mass-media. They are your big enemy!
Only once you see them as your enemy, can you see through them. While they are your friends, you will never be delivered from them or their power.
The agenda of the agents of Satan – the mass media:
If the world system is alive and ruled by a god, that changes everything. Truth is always the primary casualty of war, but even more so when dealing with Satan. This is where we are right now. God’s truth stands supreme like a huge pillar in the Temple, while all around, evil, sin, error, and deception swim in a doomed sea.
The agenda of the media is to break down and change borders, barriers and boundaries of God and to encourage the breaking of godly restraint so that you can be a true world-citizen, a child of the devil.
Imagine the homosexual CNN news reporters as your guides and informers. Some of them have used CNN to “out” themselves and others openly flaunt their sexuality on the channel.
And what about Wolf Blitzer? I really like him, but the “wisdom” of his grey hair is a lie, because he keeps pushing for a “proportional response” by Israel to Hamas! What rubbish! These are voices echoing the will of Satan from the abyss.
And what about Ben Wedeman, CNN’s Middle East expert? He is a puppet of the world, but a puppet with a difference. Ben, you are one of the very few international journalists who will soon be truly saved! Ben, my friend, you will soon become my brother in Messiah, but it will be at great expense to your belief system. There is much you will have to forsake. May I ask all our prayer warriors around the world to pray for the salvation of CNN’s Ben Wedeman.
Hopefully as we move forward into these exciting end times, many mass- media journalists will forsake their media empires and get saved.
The media’s agenda is to change you. It is to blind you to all that is of the true and living God. It is to remove Godly virtues from your life. It is to remove and ridicule God’s judgement on sin and evil. It is to remove God’s warnings. It is to make you one of their devil-made masses! It is to ridicule and cast down the Bible.
Isaiah 59:14 “...Truth is fallen in the street.”
The agenda can be seen by simply looking at the Biblical principles and truths they have cast down. If it’s not a Bible issue the world’s mass media would not have interest one way or the other.
The agenda of God:
God’s agenda is all that is good, right, holy and pure. God is working to bring these things about in those who are His. In the midst of our crooked, perverse and evil world, our Lord is working wonderfully in His children saved by and through the cross and shed blood of Messiah.
I don’t expect the media to present God’s agenda. But their big tragic mistake is to come against God’s agenda as they present the devils.
Don’t be fooled by numbers. The Bible itself shows that the numbers of those who get saved will be few compared to the lost. Make sure you are on the right side!
Some Media Bible verses:
The following few verses are powerful indeed. You must know them well, especially in this day and in the context of the media.
Proverbs 28:4 “Those who forsake the law (word of God) praise the wicked.”
Matthew 6:22-23 “The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore when your eye is good, your whole body also is full of light. But when your eye is bad, your body also is full of darkness; therefore take heed that the light that is in you is not darkness, how great is that darkness.”
Psalm 101:3 “I will set nothing wicked before my eyes; I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cling to me.”
Romans 6:16 “Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness?”
1 John 2:15 “Do not love the world or the things of the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”
Isaiah 52:7 “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news...who proclaims salvation, who says to Zion, ‘Your God reigns’”.
So, what is really going on?
The world thinks that the Arab /Israeli conflict (and it sub-conflicts) are about land for peace, or about returning so-called stolen land to the Palestinians. They think it’s about the poor Arabs being subjugated by Israel. They think it’s about a two- state solution. They think it’s about what the media says it’s about.
Give the Palestinians what they want, and we will have world peace, they claim!
How unprepared Europe has become and how successful the media has been in brainwashing and blinding them to truth.
How far America has drifted from its faith-backbone!
And of course, how far the whole world has gone into the very clutches of the devil, led by the mass- media!
God is not sitting on the fence!
Has your church taught you what the Bible has to say about Gaza, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Russia? Has your church taught you about arising anti-Semitism worldwide?
Has your church taught you about the soon coming world economic collapse, the proposed reform of the EU to include the western Muslim leg? Has your church taught you about Egypt and Jordan in prophecy?
Putin’s move on Crimea was bad. His move on Ukraine was bad, his move on flight MH17 was bad, but his country loves him and thinks he is good. (He has an 80% popularity rating!) The west has hit the bad man with sanctions. Putin has hit back with sanctions against sanctioning countries. These sanctions involved mostly agricultural products, but are already spreading to travel and transportation.
Do you know who the big looser will be in all of this? It will be Russia and the bad man. You see, Russia was in a financial semi-crisis before all of this. Their economic growth has been falling. Now these sanctions will dramatically affect the economy much more. Inflation is already spiralling while the Russian market falls hard.
Do you see what I see? Suddenly, out of the blue the “hooks” of Ezekiel 38:4 have appeared! God says here that He will put “hooks in the jaws” of this great empire (Russia and allies) and will draw them into the land (Israel).
The reason is found a few verses on. Ezekiel 38:12 “You will come to take plunder, booty, livestock and goods and silver and gold.” (vs13.)
Do you see WW111 developing? Who would have thought that Russia would come seeking produce, agricultural goods and silver and gold representing economic wealth? Who would have thought that this lot would arrive on the world stage so quickly?
What are they fighting for?
If you listen to the mass-media Israel is the occupier, and the aggressor. If you listen to God, the Palestinians are the occupiers and the aggressors!
This question also contains the answer of who wins. If you listen to God, Israel wins!
If you listen to the mass-media they will tell you that Islam seeks peace and coexistence. But they seek domination and control. Conquest rather than compromise is the goal of Islam, but the blind media won’t tell you that. God will!
It’s all a war for your mind and soul! Some of the most momentous lies in history are being perpetuated now by the mass-media. The notion that Israel at some time in history forcibly displaced the Arabs of Palestine is the greatest lie in world history. The media rages in favour of this giant lie!
You can’t love God without loving His word and His plans for the Jewish people. If you say you do love our Lord, but not His plans for the Jewish people, you are either deceived or a blind liar who actually loves your own words and yourself supremely.
Today we are in a world where “multitudes, multitudes are in the valley of decision” (Joel 3:14.) There are spiritual forces at work and intensifying all the time, which most people are not even vaguely aware of. We are in a world where the opinions of the masses are at war with God.
I don’t know about you, but I feel the pressure growing all the time. I feel it; I see it and it causes me to repent again and again and to seek deeply, the things of God again and again.
Please understand that if you do not have a personal, active, alive relationship through the new birth, your opinions are worthless and valueless and empty.
A terrible example!
Genesis 25:32 “Esau said, ‘Look I am about to die; so what profit is this birthright to me?’” This man who becomes the father of the Arab people despised his birthright. He was full of arrogance towards God’s scheme of things. He sold his birthright to Jacob, and then tried to get it back again.
Today this situation is playing out in Israel. The message is, do not mess with God! Value, treasure, protect, nourish and love your birthright. It has enormous, incredible, magnificent, eternal consequences.
Do not take sides with the one who disrespected God and sold his birthright and is now fighting the Jews to get it back!
The place of safety in this day is the Word of God.
Purpose for life can only come in and through God’s plan for you.
The world’s governments, the mass-media and in fact almost every aspect of society have declared war on God and His word. The boss of the world-citizen speaks and the world falls in line. Our Lord is speaking now and we must fall in line with Him.

Psalm 36:9 “In Your light we see light.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
