- Turkey has allied herself militarily with Libya in the last few days. This echoes the war dubbed WW111 of Ezekiel 38 & 39.
- Ongoing troubles in the US and many other nations are causing large numbers of Jews to make enquiries about returning to Israel. (When the Lion roars, His children will return, trembling from the West (Hosea 11:10)
- Israel launches attack on Hamas in response to their rocket attack on Israel. Israel launches new spy satellite. Israel launches attack on Iranian bases in Syria. “Mystery” explosions continue in Iran.
- Bubonic plague identified in China.
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
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.”
Psalm 47:5 “God has gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.”
Psalm 17:15 “As for me, I will see Your face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied when I awake in Your likeness.”
Psalm50:5 “Gather My saints together to Me, those who have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice.”
Isaiah 26:19 “Your dead shall live; together with my dead body they shall arise. Awake and sing, you who dwell in the dust; for your dew is like the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.”
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.
10th July 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Dreams visions and watching:
Truth stands and endures – forever.
The biggest priority of life is getting right with God after your initial salvation. It takes all your life, but what a wonderful life it is!
More and more you should be feeling that you don’t belong in this world – how right you will be, and how right with God you will be. (1 John 5:4)
The uncorrupted, pure word of God inspired and led by the Holy Spirit is the believer’s prime source of spiritual food.
Other helpers include the work of the watchman, dreams and visions.
This is the final countdown! All these things are of critical importance now.
The office of the watchman is a unique high calling of the Lord. There are numerous qualifications and prerequisites, least of which is being right all the time. Of course you can be wrong regularly, but then you’re not a watchman of the Lord, you are a self- opinionated speculator.
Being right in watching and what you see is a prerequisite of your track record.
Other qualifications are: The application of the cross and being humble before God, with pride destroyed. Being Spirit filled and operating in the revelatory gifts of the Spirit. Not being a novice, and being extremely well versed in the Bible.
There are some so-called watchmen out there, who are purely self-seekers, using the office for their personal exaltation. They always talk about themselves and have an air of pride about them.
Job 27:18 “The watchman has a house made like a moth.” (Full of holes to see out of. It’s not permanent either, as he moves on to watch from other locales.)
Jeremiah 51:12 “Set up a standard on the walls of Babylon (end-time world) and make the guard strong. Set up the watchmen and prepare the ambushes, for the Lord has both devised and done what He spoke against the inhabitants of Babylon.”
If you kick God out of society, you are not left with a vacuum or a godless society. You end up ruled by the god of this world. Satan comes in like an unrestrained flood. Things end up seven times worse.” (Luke 11:26)
A nation under God includes the Godly institutions of authority and their laws.
The law of the land has the authority of God behind it. The law of self-will has the authority of Satan-filled self behind it. The law of the jungle has the law of apes behind it. This is where the world is!
The world is being led by the blind, declaring “I am,” and “Me now” and “Has God said.”
But they are soon going to run into all the King’s men (and women) and all the King’s horses! The King will declare “I AM and there is none like Me.” and all the King’s horses will say – “Amen.”
Dreams and visions:
Dreams and visions can take many forms. They may contain a personal message or a corporate message for the larger body of Messiah. They may contain a teaching snippet, a warning of things to come or an encouragement.
Dreams and visions are very much part of the unfolding of these end times. Spirits, both of God and the devil are and will use dreams. Discernment is needed like never before.
Personally, I’ve had dreams from the Lord about deep tranquillity and glorious peace, with numerous strange looking animals around and indescribable sounds. I’ve had many dreams that would get me committed to the Looney bin if I mentioned them.
I have also had a few very short encounters or incidents where I was awakened suddenly in the early hours with a dramatic loud trumpet blast and on another occasion, my name being called, and on another occasion, the sound of a loud alarm going off. None of these had any natural explanation.
These all had timely meanings for me. There are very many teachers out there with deep personality problems of insecurity, who use things like dreams and visions to create manipulation to give themselves the self-importance they look for. “Buyer beware!”
A vivid dream can be a powerful thing in your life. It can create a ‘reality’ that only dreams are made of! You can and should pray often for the Lord to give you godly dreams that are meaningful or even prophetic. As said, be discerning.
It is important to identify what is from God, and what is the normal rambling of a dream.
Dreams are always subjective and secondary to the written word. If not, reject them.
Be careful of the 100% ers! These are the people who put out a video and tell you with great glee that their dream or vision is 100% of the Lord. The moment you encounter the 100% crowd, know that it is 100% not of God. I recall dozens of 100% ers “confirming through a dream or vision, the hogwash of the Revelation 12-sign teachers! Apart from forever discrediting themselves, they caused enormous damage to body of Messiah and the word of prophecy.
I have never known one single dream or vision claimed to be 100% of the Lord, from anyone, that has come to pass – not one! They are manipulators.
Be careful also of the “God told me with an audible voice,” crowd – lairs all!
When it comes to anyone claiming to be a watchman or with regular dreams, visions, you can easily identify if he is called of the Lord by his track record.
Two important dreams / visions:
1) There is a video doing the rounds at the moment from Pastor Dana Corverstone, of three shocking dreams he had, which seemed to describe various events of the tribulation period, to occur within the next few months. His dreams seem to be genuine.
He did however exclude the rapture from the dreams and anything to do with Israel, which is central to prophecy. For this reason alone, I would be careful of putting too much weight on it. So what I have done is put it all on the shelf – and we will see!
Nonetheless there is severe, timely warning to the world in his dreams.
2) There is an Israeli Jew known only as Daniel, who has regular dreams about spiritual things. He reports on his latest dream with great urgency to the whole of Israel, though various media. He appeals, begs and pleads for the Jews of the world to return urgently to Israel, because those host nations are about to “explode.”
Here is the tragic drama: He says to all Jews – “Come home, Messiah is here already and He is waiting, but God will not give Him the sign to be revealed yet. He says that Jews living in America are preventing the revealing of Messiah, until they come home.”
If you see Messiah on the ground anywhere in Israel, you are seeing the antichrist! The true Messiah comes to the ground at the Second Advent, seven years from His coming in the air at the rapture.
So this dream and vision is setting people up to receive the antichrist!
Do you see how dangerous a dream / vision can be?
Don’t be led by dreams. Be led by the Spirit of God. Dreams are confirmers with few being primary messages from the Lord.
As we move forward into this darkening spiritual night let me again assure you that the purpose of The Prophetic Scroll is to inform your head, fill your heart, warn you, and warm you to God. It is to help you grow and be stable, so that you may be presented blameless to God. It is to support and back up the many ministries serving our Lord excellently. It is to identify frauds, fakes, flakes and counterfeits. It is to reveal with revelation, the glories that lie before us.
Isaiah 21:6 “...Go set a watchman, let him declare what he sees.”
Luke 12:36-37 “You yourselves (Israel) be like men who wait (watch) for their master, when He will return from the wedding, that when He comes and knocks, they may open to Him immediately. Blessed are those servants, whom the master, when he comes will find watching...”
Who is this returning from a wedding, and what wedding? Who are the people to whom He is retuning? The return after the wedding (where the church becomes the bride of Messiah) is at the Second Coming and the return is for the tribulation saints!
Edition 223. September 3rd 2014
God’s enemy, the church!
God’s enemy, the church?
Matthew 12:23 “He that is not with Me is against Me.”
Right up front let me explain, that only a part of the church is God’s enemy. A great part of the Church is with Him, for Him, in love with Him and His word. Much of the Church is His true, beloved, trusted friend! The true Church is the body of Messiah with Him being the head.
I have no aspirations to be the decider of who is who in the zoo! In fact, I really do believe that when the pressure is on many churches that are way out of line, will quickly fall in line.
The purpose of this edition is to examine numerous Bible verses to see what God has to say on the subject.
How can part of the church be God’s enemy you ask? Well, if you know your Bible, you will see just how true this is. We must delve into Bible prophecy, because these issues are of critical importance in this day particularly.
The true Church is the body of Messiah. It’ a living breathing super-intelligent, super-natural organism, made of spirit and flesh. It is not a traditional institutional organisation run by dead men and women posing as pastors.
My friends these are issues of great importance now. The pressures to fit in with the schemes of the devil are intensifying now. Your roots must be deep and secure.
What is the divider?
The big divider between those who are with our Lord and those not, is acceptance and belief in the whole of the Bible, led by the Spirit of God.
A large section of the church has become a great friend of God’s greatest enemy, the god of the world. Much of the church deserves to be deceived, because they have given themselves to the word of the devil instead of the word of God.
The modern sick, diseased church:
If Yeshua preached the same message today as the modern church does, He would not have been crucified!
When the church makes sense to the world it has fallen!
The dumbest thing by Joel Osteen’s wife:
Here is a tragic example (with a good ending) of a person who doesn’t know God, speaking for God to millions. Click Here.
This is an example of just how far the modern church has gone from the true gospel. This single video clip really summarises the tragedy of the modern church.
Here is Victoria Osteen’s new book:
Here is the word of God:
John 12:25 “He who loves his life will lose it and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.”
It is Satan’s work that glorifies self and the works of the world. The way of God is the way of death to self. Your life is only godly, once the cross has killed self and eliminated all that is of the old-life. Yes we are saved the moment we are born again, but that salvation is of the spirit and not the soul, which must be saved as an ongoing thing.
Satan is the god of the majority consensus and common thinking. Satan casts down the veracity of the Bible. He must get you to see that good is bad and bad is good and there are no absolutes.
He must get God out of the courthouse and schoolhouse and kill the incentive of the ambitious for God. He must get rid of extremism and especially those who are radical for God. What you see on TV is the way to be. He uses the mesmerising power of the media and group-speak. He fans the flames of hatred towards those who really love the Lord and His word.
Many must come to realise that their path is wrong, their course is wrong, their life is wrong with God. People can’t imagine that God isn’t sponsoring their lives. They can’t believe that their earthly successes are all a failure with God.
Every word of the message of Osteen, his wife and others like them are the exact opposite of truth.
►The very first job of any church leader is to teach you to die without dignity.
No you are not valuable and special and worthy. You are a rat! You are offensive to God and full of sin. You are worthless and an empty sounding gong with nothing of value to add to anything.
When you realise and see the extent of your own depravity, and that you are worthy of hell, you are on the wonderful road to glory. If you can’t see that you deserve hell (like me), you don’t know God. It’s only as the cross of Messiah does its deadly work in us and delivers us from the self-life to death and to resurrection life can we see our state.
Today we live in a superficial, celebrity-created world and sub-culture rather than a world of true holiness in the pursuit of God. Me now is the cry of the modern Christian. Self-glorification and self-motivation rather than stewardship and denial of self and the world, is the order of the day. Hedonism at all costs!
SELF-INDULGENCE is the norm today. It is not the way of God.
God’s enemy – a successful life!
You can’t live the Christian life – no one can; only our Lord can live His life in you. Your great life is an obstacle to God because, like those building the tower of Babel, it’s what you can do in and of your own self. It’s only through the glorious exchange of my life for His life that we can be truly successful.
The work of the cross is not to resurrect the old nature, but to slay the old life and deliver you into new life, stripped of sin, holy and right with God. Today there are many enemies of the cross of Messiah in the church. They are not enemies of Yeshua, just of the cross and its application.
Does your church teach you how to die? Does it teach the application of the cross? If it doesn’t it is teaching you to be a counterfeit Christian! It is an enemy of God’s ways and workings. All that emanates from the energy of the flesh is doomed. All that emanates from the energy of the Spirit is of God.
Only in the light of God can we truly see ourselves. All else is the light of lies and the deception and darkness of the devil masquerading as godliness.
Psalm 36:9 “In your light we see light.”
Job 38:15 “From the wicked their light is withheld...”
If you are really in the truth, the full truth, your life will be dramatic, spectacular, different, wonderful, and full of joy, hope, love and of course you are a weirdo compared to the world.
The truth is only offensive to those who have become a living lie. The truth is offensive to those ruled by self. The truth is offensive to those who love the world. The truth is offensive to the demonised.
Some say that the Yeshua took care of all sin on His cross and we don’t need to take up our cross. The funny thing is that these people, on top of denying dozens of scriptures, live worldly lives. Yes sin has been dealt with, removed and its power destroyed by the work of Yesuah’s cross, but we still have the propensity to sin deep in our flesh. We are right with God in Spirit, but must apply the cross to the world, the flesh and the demonic.
God has condemned all sin and its root, the un-crucified flesh. You can’t please God by being good. You can please God by dying to self, then your good is acceptable to God.
Much of the church is trying to make peace with what God has condemned and will bring to destruction.
Once you have tasted the goodness of God in His workings in our lives – how great it is!
Psalm 74:20-23 “Have respect to the covenant; for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitation of cruelty...The tumult of those who rise up against You increases continually.”
2 Corinthians 4:3-4 "Our gospel is hidden to them that are lost in whom the god of this world has blinded the eyes of them who believe not."
You become what you love. Today the deeper Christian life is all but impossible except for the few who are prepared to pay the price.
The modern church is an idol of its own making, devoid of the cross and its application. The true believer sits outside with our Lord! The true believer is the one who loves the entirety of the word of the Saviour.
A lot of the blame is upon the leaders. Sheep don’t stray too far from the shepherd by nature. The false church today is in a leader-created catastrophe. Its leaders are in decline, joining the worldly wolf-packs as the sheep are left to other beasts and are unable to get rid of their base desires and instincts, because their leaders won’t teach them how to apply the cross.
My friends be careful whom you follow in these days.
Separation from the world and to God is the first principle of the successful Christian life.
The spirit of the age:
The Spirit of the Church age has the characteristics of the Lamb and the Lion speaking from the word of God.
The religion of the world has a spirit contained in its religion which is a mixture of the things the world aspires to and promotes, simply packaged as church.
The counterfeit church and its false prophets always tell people what they want to hear.
At the end of the day, few will be saved compared to the many who will be lost, says the Bible. Not because salvation is hard, but because their own pride and self-righteousness has blinded them, and their stupid ministers never taught them properly.
Minister reading this; do you know that you are dealing with the eternity and eternal state of the sheep? Do you know that you are dealing with the subjects of the King? Do you know that you will be paid by this self-same King in eternal reward or loss of reward and possibly eternal hell?
O, Mr. Minister, please understand that you have an incredibly powerful role to play in God’s kingdom. You need to properly feed your sheep, nourish them, protect them, love them and transfer to them, the tools and power to walk in victory before our soon coming great King, Saviour and God.
Excuse me for sharing some personal testimony. I recall being brought down to the ground, literally, a dozen times in abject repentance during lengthy fasts, desperately seeking our Lord. The best times of my life, and I have had many spectacular experiences, have been as I ended a long fast of repentance and seeking our Lord.
In a certain way it’s like the end result of the cross doing its work, delivering you into a whole new life!
The spirit of the age, Satan himself has seduced too many leaders and neutralised them. They have been turned into dirty little puppets of the world.
Proverbs 28:4 “Those who forsake the law (word) praise the wicked.”
Beware the modern church! It has been infiltrated by hordes of wolves masquerading as sheep and shepherds. Many are trying to bring people under the law, while others are pushing demonic hyper-grace. False doctrine is everywhere; deception is growing, just as the Bible said it would.
The fact of the matter is that we are in a spiritual environment with truth and error, God and the devil at war and at work around and about us all the time.
Satan has always resisted Gods work right from the day dot! In our Lord’s time here on earth He had an unrepentant betrayer (Judas) in His midst and a repentant betrayer (Peter). One was eternally lost and the other saved.
Most people don’t know and can’t see that self is inextricably linked with the world and the demonic. Their lives are materialism, prosperity, holidays, movies and entertainment and a valueless, virtue-less existence of horror.
The spirit of the age goes together with the spirit of antichrist. This is the spirit at work in many churches today.
The spirit of antichrist is preparing the apostate church for the coming of antichrist. The world cannot receive the Spirit of truth, but can and does receive the spirit of error. The Spirit of truth leads into all truth. But when a person rejects truth God hardens their heart and their end is much worse.
The big problems today are ignorance of God’s word, the love of the world’s word and a hard heart before God and His word. These together will guarantee your free ride to hell.
The tragedy of God’s enemies:
Matthew 12:23 “He that is not with Me is against Me.”
God’s enemy, the counterfeit church, will attack the true Church. Because we are dealing with the Spirit of God and the spirit of the devil, you can be sure that the false church will make war with the true Church.
The counterfeit church will have enormous support in the mass-media and the sub-cultures of the world. The counterfeit church will betray God like a modern Judas and will make sure and good friends with their ‘good’ god – Satan the god of the world, posturing as God.
Exodus 23:27 “I will send My fear before you , I will cause confusion among all the people to whom you come and I will make all your enemies turn their backs to you.”
Nahum 1:12 “...The Lord reserves His wrath for His enemies.”
Where are the two churches headed?
The counterfeit church, God’s enemy, is headed for unity with world religions. It is headed for ‘peace’ – the peace only the world can offer. It is headed for self-glorification. It is headed for deep, fearless friendship with the world. It is headed for hell in its self-orientated blindness.
The true Church of the living God is headed for doctrinal unity with those who love the truth. It is headed for deep peace with God. It does not serve itself or the world system. It is full of the clean fear of God. It is headed for heaven full of knowledge, understanding and the wisdom of God and His ways.
The Church of truth:
The true Church of the living God is enveloped in His Spirit. It is only in and through the Spirit of God that we have the doorway, into God’s presence and the food of life.
The Holy Spirit is our close friend but He is a supernatural friend. If you lean on Him, He will set you on fire with love for our Lord and His word. If you lean on Him, He will transform you into someone your wildest imagination could not even vaguely comprehend! But there will be a cost! It will cost you everything you are!
If you lean on, trust in and know this incredible Holy Spirit, He will give you knowledge, understanding and the very wisdom of God. He will make your dead letter of the Bible alive with wonder.
The big thing is not so much the truth of the Bible, but that it is alive. The only thing that brings life to it is the Spirit.
God’s enemy and Israel:
John 4:22 “Salvation is of the Jews.” The One who is shortly to return is “The Lion of the tribe of Judah” (Revelation 5:5)
Salvation and all that it entails is of the Jew. The coming Messiah is a Jew. All the prophecies of the end time events centre on Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews!
God’s work now is centred on the salvation of the Jews. God’s enemies working with Satan, are working against all of this.
Isaiah 60:12 “For the nation and kingdom which shall not serve you (Israel) shall perish and those nations shall be utterly ruined.”
Exodus 23:22 “If you (Israel) indeed obey His voice, and do all that I speak, then I will be an enemy to your enemies and an adversary to your adversaries.”
2 Chronicles 20:29 “The fear of God was on all the kingdoms when they heard that the Lord had fought against the enemies of Israel.”
The majority of the false church will have a major part to play in the coming Holocaust. Even now many churches are silent in the face of Israel’s growing danger. Silence is appeasement!
Do you want to know which Church to go to or be associated with? Go with the Church that goes with God’s plans for Israel.
Much of the church today is working against God’s work with Israel. Much of the church today is God’s enemy.
Abraham had a child of the flesh and a supernatural child of the Spirit. The child of the flesh hated the child of the Spirit and still does today in the Palestinian / Israeli situation. The child of the flesh can’t see the work of God. Think about that, Palestinian supporter!
How many churches today are participating in BDS: Boycott of Israeli products, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel? The majority of the denominational churches are, and many Pentecostal churches as well. They are working for Satan against God. They are God’s enemy.
Isn’t the Church supposed to be concerned for the poor? Here it is: Matthew 25:40-41 “And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’ Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels...”
The context of the verse above is the feeding of the poor, or is it? Being cast into hell is a bit severe for not feeding the poor isn’t it? Well looking below the surface we see something very interesting. Who is “the least of these My brethren”? It is our Jewish Messiah speaking. The least of His brethren would most certainly be either the poor of the family of God or the poor of Israel or both!
Israel without her Messiah is poor. Do you see that this verse also has prophetic connotations? It is speaking to the believers, instructing them to stand with Israel, to open the doors for her to come to her Messiah and not stand in the way of God’s work to the poor of Israel, the yet unsaved.
Do you see the significance of standing against God’s work relating to the Jews and the terrible punishment for those who do?
The media today, specifically, CNN, BBC, Sky and others are fully behind the push for the destruction of the State of Israel. Israel is automatically portrayed as the enemy and just as Hitler used the media so the modern media becomes a perfect tool in the hands of the devil. If you can’t see this, you are in danger!
The job of the true Church:
It is to give yourself in total surrender and brokenness to our Lord and His word. It is to make the “Jews jealous”. It is to give the gospel to the “Jew first and then the Gentile”.
Is your church preparing you for what is coming upon this world very soon? Is it preparing you for a major attack on western culture and all the freedoms and liberty that Christianity has brought to us?
Is your church addressing the issues of the day that have a Biblical, prophetic aspect to them, like:
Gaza, Hamas, ISIS, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Russia, Ebola, coming world economic collapse, Reform of the EU to include the western Muslim leg. Arising anti-Semitism worldwide. Massacre of Christians by Muslims in many Islamic nations. Volcanoes and earthquakes increasing.
►A friend of mine, Yael Ecktein, Vice President of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, said this, “There are many that yearn for our destruction, but Israel’s Christian friends are the candle in the darkness. And this flame cannot be extinguished.”
Are you one of these “candles in the darkness”?
The true Church is alive with glory. It is a magnificent creation of God. It is eternal; it is the very essence of love, peace, joy and other such fruits. It is an exclusive creation only for those who have entered by the new birth. It is formed and sustained supernaturally.
The true Church of the Living God is holy, and pure, united in doctrine. It is the place of soft, broken hearts, right with God.
I took this picture in the wilds of KwaZulu/Natal. It’s my favourite, the cheetah caught in the early morning sun.
Job 12:7 “Now ask the beasts and they shall teach you.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
