18th September 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Watch the watchmen:
But first: Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s prayer meeting, “The Return” will be held on the Washington Mall, Washington DC, on the 26th September. This day is known as Shabbat Shuvah. Interestingly the Bible reading for the day is, “Return O Israel, to the Lord your God.”(Hosea 14:2-10 Micah 7: 18-20 Joel 2:15-27) It’s all centred on a global call for the church to return to the ways of God, and for Israel’s return to Messiah.
Today is the beginning of Rosh Hashanah / Feast of Trumpets, depending on the sighting of the new moon. ●This is NOT the rapture time and start of the tribulation.
The current peace efforts between Israel and some Arab nations is NOT the final antichrist peace deal - not by any means. What they are is incremental peace efforts.
This is NOT the “peace and safety, then sudden destruction” verse coming about. That verse relates to the Daniel 9:27 peace deal and the tribulation.
But these things collectively are important in that they present a new dawn for the Middle East. The knock-on effects and influence of these peace efforts are causing others to want to jump on the band wagon too.
Because these are such critical and dangerous times, this is a more important time than ever to be led correctly by men of God who are led by the Spirit and have a history of accuracy and stability. There are many amongst the riff raff.
So many wannabe watchmen and teachers are leading people astray with inaccurate, wrong pronouncements. Some are so outrageous! A watchman of the Lord is not one who watches for possibilities. He knows where to look and what to watch for and is led by the Spirit of God, therefore he is right.
I was given some “100% for sure” information in charts and numbers and various things as to why this would be the rapture time – for sure 100%! It didn’t sit right. When checking it out myself nothing added up!
Because a blind, always-wrong watchman says something is a sign; that does not make it so, by any means.
Being wrong destroys your authority and credibility, and damages the prophetic word and the faith of others, especially new believers.
Being wrong on major biblical things means one thing for sure – absolutely: You have not heard from God and you speak your own opinions.
The Spirit led teacher / watchman will have a history of godly stability and is therefore trustworthy.
Discernment is more critical than ever in the face of fast growing deception.
Ezra 3:13 (Temple rebuilt) “The people could not discern the noise of the shout of joy from the noise of the weeping of the people...”
Error becomes an immovable mountain if not dealt with, because it is formed and secured on the pillar of pride.
Spirit led, and inspired knowledge, understanding and wisdom endures and produces godly fruit.
One way to know a false teacher: When brought to correction, they will turn on you because you won’t join them in propping up their pride!
The Spirit of God in your heart is the umpire. He brings peace when you are on the right track. But you need the baptism of the Spirit. If not your umpire is you, yourself.
The condition of the end-time church:
There is a powerful prophetic message for the end-time church hidden in the messages to the seven churches in Revelation 2 & 3. They were seven historic churches. All seven contain truth for us, but prophetically, they also plot the course of church history.
The first three churches, Ephesus, Smyrna and Pergamos speak of the times gone by. The last four plot the course of the end time church and run concurrently. They are Thyatira, representing the Catholic and other orthodox churches. (They are cast into the tribulation) Sardis is the church that has a “name to live but is dead”. They are told that Lord will come upon them as a thief and they won’t know when! This represents the denominational Spirit-less churches. (With a few exceptions) Then comes the glorious church – the church of Philadelphia. They have the key of David, opening the doors to the Jews. (Isaiah 22:22) This church keeps the word and is promised to be kept out of the tribulation. Finally we have the lukewarm church of Laodicea, which is spiritually blind. God “vomits them out of His mouth.” “Laodicea”: Strong’s G2993, “Laodikeia” From two root words: ‘Laos’ = people and ‘Dike’ =Ruling. This is the people ruled” or “people/self opinionated church.
The pictures below show all that remains of Laodicea today. The Spirit of God flew away from this church and God spat them out of His mouth. (Revelation 3:16) The pillars still standing represent truth, but all else is gone.
1 Timothy 3:15 (Amp) “You know how people must conduct themselves in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and stay – the prop and support of the truth.”
So, what we see here is a very powerful and accurate picture of the end-time church. Some of it is the walking dead. Some are a horror of evil. Some are cast into the tribulation, spat out and condemned. And right in the midst is the church who keeps and loves the word and is pro-Israel.
Bear in mind that there is a terrible, tragic church and a glorious, growing powerful church side by side in these days. Don’t get tunnel vision for just one side of the coin.
The Bible speaks of a great end-time revival (the latter rain) in the last days. (Joel 2:23, Hosea 6:3) and in many other verses.
A major prophetic mark of the times is increasing deception in the church. You can’t have increasing deception without increasing deceivers and that’s where the problem lies.
Satan used deception to try to stamp out the early church because he knew it would wreck his kingdom. Now we have the same scenario again. Sometimes you have to be severe in your dealings.
Acts 13:9-11 “Then Saul, also called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit looked intently at him and said, ‘O full of all deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all unrighteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord? And now indeed the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you shall be blind, not seeing the sun for a time, and immediately a dark mist fell upon him...”
It is most important to know prophetic things to come, but also the timing of those things, to avoid deception. You must see with spiritual eyes today.
A Spirit-led and inspired watchman / teacher is always restrained in what he sees and says. He is led by the restrainer.
We are now at the start of the new Hebrew year 5781. It will end and change to 5782 on Rosh Hashanah 2021. That is September 7th - 8th 2021. That’s a very important date!!
This year, 5781 is going to be year like no other. It’s going to be a wild time of stress, strain and pressure. But in the midst there will be islands of peace amongst the pillars of truth.
The good news is that we are on the verge of great revival. We are seeing it in many nations of the east. Of course there will always be churches deteriorating and dying.
Many of those who have gone off into a ditch will repent and return. Many will continue to slip and slide further away.
As we enter the beginning of these wild times, I want to assure you that The Prophetic Scroll will be your place of spiritual stability and rest.
Edition 228. October 8th 2014
What the watchman sees:
What the watchman sees:
Jeremiah 1:7-12 “You shall go to all whom I send you, and whatever I command you, you shall speak...I have put My words in your mouth. I have set you over nations and kingdoms, to root out and pull down, to destroy and throw down, to build and to plant. Moreover the word of the Lord came to me saying, ‘Jeremiah, what do you see?’ And I said, ‘I see a branch of an almond tree.’ The Lord said to me, ‘You have seen well, for I am ready to perform My word.’” (And His Word cannot be broken. John 10:35)
The entire final purpose of Bible prophecy is to reveal and unveil our Messiah in all His magnificence as the King of kings, Lord of lords and the Lion of the tribe of Judah. It is to reveal and lay out all things associated with this. We must understand the difference between the Lamb-Lord and the Lion-Lord!
Time is marching on. It’s almost as though the clock is running faster. So many prophetic developments have come to pass and are upon us now. Where are we now in the grand prophetic picture? Let’s have an objective look.
The point and objective of this edition is to “know the time.”
The watchmen and the pastors:
►We are witnessing the rapid fall of much of the church. This is the biggest catastrophe occurring right now. We are also witnessing the purifying of a smaller part of the Church.
The watchman’s ministry is much the same as that of the Bible prophets of old. They must be called of God, equipped and anointed, but even then they must wait for God to place them on the wall.
A good relationship between the watchmen and the pastors of the Church is needed. They must work in harmony. The watchmen are on the wall above the people, not from a pride point of view but because that was the vantage position in the ancient towns where they could see a long way off because of their elevation. So it is today. The watchmen are the seers.
The church watchmen do not hang around inside the church. They are up above it where they can see. The ‘watchman’ inside the church is a fraud guiding the church along the route of tradition!
The church has lacked having watchmen, to its terrible detriment. The watchmen have lacked having pastors to hear them and lead the sheep to safety – to their detriment as well.
Many so-called watchmen in the church today are nothing more that despicable frauds and counterfeits leading the flock to the best place to buy Christmas decorations.
The church which has rejected the ministry of the watchmen has left itself blind. It has no eye-salve. Do you know what that means? This lukewarm church will be and is in fact even now being spat out of God’s mouth.
Revelation 3:18 (The Lukewarm church) “I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich and white garments that you may be clothed that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed, and anoint your eyes with eye salve that you may see.”
The watchmen will keep you safe, but not fully fed. You need the whole body working together for that.
There are many watchmen needing to be heard by the pastors of the church, but these pastors have rejected them and taken on that mantle themselves. This is why they have no authority in this regard and speak what they have not heard. God does things in His order. The pastor who has rejected Bible prophecy and the ministry of the watchmen is not to be trusted. His ministry will go off track fast.
Perhaps another reason why the watchmen are not always well received is because they tend to be a bit nuts, odd, strange and gloriously weird. They’re out there on the walls, watching for storms. They get rain-soaked, and then they stagger into the church half lightning-struck and yell all sorts of warnings while the flock sits inside, comfortable in a box.
The repentance of the pastor:
Many sheep will not respond to the watchmen but will respond to the shepherd. This is why the two must walk and work together
Now read these verses below carefully and note well what’s happening. Do you see the modern church here? It’s the duty of the pastor to lead the congregation to the “old paths” of the word of God and its warnings as presented by the watchmen.
Jeremiah 6:16, 19 “Ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘we will not walk in it.’ Also 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, 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, nor My law but rejected it.”
This is the tragedy of much of the modern church now – and it’s going to get a whole lot worse quickly! Do you see it? Look at what God says: Because you will not listen and heed His word, God will bring calamity. But look at the more frightening thing: God will destroy the fruit of their thoughts! Their thinking will lead them astray into calamity.
Do you know what that means? Even the thinking of these wayward ones will be given over and produce the fruit of rebellion. They will become one with god of this world – Satan.
A large part of the church today is sliding down the hill towards hell at great speed and they can’t see it. Their leaders have blinded themselves and their flock. The Bible predicts that a large part of the church will be “spat out, or vomited out by God”
Revelation 3:15 “I know your works that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish that you were either cold or hot. So then because you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you (lit-vomit) out of My mouth.”
It is happening now. It must intensify. It will intensify in the coming days and months. Many church leaders will drag their congregations into the mire of eternal vomit, because they have no eye salve!
The true Church of the living God is the bastion and protector of Truth. The true Church is the protector of pure Bible doctrine and the hearts of the kingdom family.
If only Satan could break down or even crack that barrier, he would get access to the heads and hearts of the children of God. Don’t for one moment think that it can’t happen because you’ve been taught so. It can and is happening now.
If Satan could put the light out that is the children of God, he can bring in deep darkness fast.
Revelation 12:12 “Rejoice O heavens and all who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows he has a short time.”
Revelation 6:4 “And another horse fiery red went out and it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth...”
The fall of the church and the fall of Israel!
In a sense we can say that God has two “chosen people” We all know that the Jews are called “the chosen people” and we know that the church is also called “chosen.” Obviously at the end of the day there is only one “chosen people” but that is not our subject now.
The children of Israel fell because they would not lift their eyes up out of tradition taught them by “dead men”. They could not see their crucified Jewish Messiah in their own scriptures or hear it from their Rabbis.
Amos 8:1-2 “The Lord showed me a basket of summer fruit. And He said, ‘Amos, what do you see?’ So I said a basket of summer fruit. Then the Lord said to me: ‘The end has come upon My people Israel; I will not pass by them anymore. All the songs of the temple shall be wailing in that day,’ says the Lord. ‘Many dead bodies everywhere, they shall throw them out in silence.”
The point is that if God could let His chosen people the Jews fall into terrible calamity because of their rebellion, do you not think God could let that happen to the church also?
Luke 19:44 “Not one stone will be left standing upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”
These two verses above are tragic, but a reality! We are now in the time period where Israel is going to be brought to repentance. Unfortunately it will be the hard way.
We are now in a time period where the watchmen-less, blind church does not know the time of her visitation!
The Jews could not see their Messiah. The church today cannot see her Messiah - soon to come. O, yes they see Him off in the distance, but they “don’t know the time of their visitation!”
On top of not knowing the time of its visitation, the church can’t see how deeply intermingled with the occult she is!
She can’t see where she is going. She is headed for calamity. It will intensify even now and within months. The modern church believes in gentle Jesus in a manger, who could not harm a flea. They believe in the power of tinsel, glitter, gold and silver balls and the sex goddess – Ishtar (Easter).
The watchmen-less tradition-bound church thinks gentle Jesus is coming back some day in the distant future to save them because they are more good than bad and have a nice averaged-out mix of religious beliefs. These half-baked, lukewarm, counterfeit Christians know nothing of the cross, the Lion, judgment, hell, Satan and demons.
Luke 18:8 “...When the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”
Let me assure of one thing. My deepest desire is not to prove this church or that wrong and myself right. God’s truth and eternity is much bigger issue. We are answerable to our Lord firstly and not some church!
What’s coming and when?
We are now at another milestone in the sky, with the next of the blood-moon tetrad of eclipses that fall on a Feast day. We are now at a Shemitah year on the Hebrew calendar and a jubilee of significance.
The last of the blood -moon tetrads is next year as the Shemitah year ends.
These are harbingers of big world troubles.
Now let’s have a look at something very interesting:
Isaiah 8:18 “Here am I and the children whom the Lord has given me! We are for signs and wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, who dwells in Mount Zion.”
Isaiah’s children were most certainly for signs! One of his sons was named Shear-Jashub, which means, “A remnant shall return.” (Isaiah 10:21) Another son named, Maher-shalal-hash-baz, means “plunder, hastening spoils”. God commanded Isaiah to write this long name on a tablet to give his son. The name is also a reference to the sudden attack on Damascus by the Assyrian.
So within the names of Isaiah’s sons we have significant end-time messages.
We are awaiting the swift destruction of Damascus according to Isaiah 17. The situation right now is fluid and we don’t know exactly how it will occur, but occur it will – in a flash and perhaps within months or less.
●We are now at 5775 on the Hebrew calendar and the very last days of a Bible generation, the spiritual awakening of the Jews, the arising of militant Islam, the defence of Islam by presidents and prime ministers. We are on the verge of a much wider world war between Islam and the West. We are on the verge of WW111 caused by Putin’s Russia and his invasion of Ukraine. Old style soviet expansionism is on the go. Iran is arising and making deals with Russia for nuclear technology and equipment. ISIS, a reflection of the true Quran, is on the march and being attacked by a coalition of forces. This will expand into attacks across the West. Iran continues to fund terror. Anti-Semitism has risen by 400% in Europe and is worsening worldwide. Many churches, specifically denominational, are coming against Israel by launching and supporting the boycotting of Israeli products. Beheadings and savage killings and crucifixions by Islamic organisations are intensifying. We are seeing the beginning of a world economic shaking, (early days). The next intifada is about to begin; the so-called West Bank, Gaza and the Golan are the hot spots. Israel’s enemies are surrounding her and becoming more militant. Ebola races onto the world stage as a new catastrophe spreads damaging confidence in the world economy.
●John Lewis, the big UK retailer, voted the best, says of Europe – “it’s getting worse fast”. Of France the CEO of John Lewis says; “I have never been to a country so ill at ease, nothing works anymore, and worse, nobody cares. If you’ve got investments in France – get them out fast,” he says.
Europe as a whole is not a pretty picture and slowing down again economically. Europe’s days are numbered!
The approaching night:
Isaiah 21:11 “The burden against Dumah: He calls to me out of Seir, Watchman what of the night, Watchman what of the night...”
The verse above is amazingly insightful and relevant to today. “Dumah” was the sixth son of Ishmael and therefore relates to the modern day Arabs and Palestinians. “Seir” (Petra) was part of the territory of Edom, which is present day Jordan, the true home of the Palestinian Arabs.
The word “Dumah” means silence. But it is not silence in the general sense. It means a stunned silence or silence in shock.
The verse above is addressed to the called watchmen. The fact that the call is made twice emphasises the importance. The verse suggests a coming darkness and a stunned shock.
1 Thessalonians 5:5 “You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We are not of the night, nor darkness. Therefore let us not sleep as others do, but let us watch and be sober.”
I tell you this: Here in the Prophetic Scroll, you will find timely warning – always. Not only analysis of the news, which you will get, but future looking warning of coming night.
David, Goliath, Israel and the Arabs:
The image above represents our new asymmetric war scenario. The West relies on sophisticated weaponry costing billions. The weaponry of the terrorist is simple and cheap comparatively and remains very effective indeed.
But we must be aware that Goliath (Palestinians) are arising again. Goliath seeks and may soon have nuclear weapons. David (Israel) will again have to trust on the Lord to guide her weapons to the target. Israel will suffer much in the coming conflicts, but will endure through and be ultimately victorious.
Do you think Israel is safe and God will protect her in these upcoming prophesied wars?
One third of the population of Israel will die in the tribulation. This may include wars just before the tribulation begins.
Interestingly, all the multi-billion dollar weaponry of the West has not been able to defeat ISIS, who have comparatively unsophisticated weapons.
Watching, praying and being ready:
The image above represents our situation as watchmen. We are to have the full knowledge of God’s word wrapped up in our hearts and minds. It is from this position that we look out into the world and beyond for signs, events, warnings and our Lord Himself. If you are filled with the knowledge and wisdom of this world, you are most unqualified and in fact disqualified as a watcher in our Lord’s kingdom.
If you were once filled with the knowledge of the world, you must dethrone it all and bring everything in your heart and head into the subjection of our Lord and His word. Only then are you qualified. But you still need to be called and placed on the world’s walls by our Lord.
Hebrews 12:14 “...Without holiness no one shall see the Lord.”
Be careful when the “watchmen begin to see eye to eye” and begin to say the same thing.
Isaiah 52:8 “...The watchmen will see eye to eye when the Lord brings back Zion.”
This is where we are now. (There is still a short way to go to get all watchmen seeing the same thing.)
As a sincere believer, you must be aware that you will almost always be under some sort of attack. In this day now, you need to be in a Church that proclaims the full word of God and not one that says they do. You need to have at least some exposure to reliable watchmen.
Let me ask you this important question. “When something large or significant breaks on the news, do you know how or if it fits into Bible prophecy? Do you know what news is of prophetic importance and what is not? Do you know that important breaking news in the US or many other countries has little prophetic consequence or importance?
Do you know where to get reliable, true, pure Biblical news on these issues, or do you just swallow up all the You-tube multitude of opinions?
We are now in a time of fast escalating prophetic fulfilment. We have one year or two to go, maybe less, but not longer. The signs will show us where are. It is time to make your life count in God’s kingdom. It is time to surrender all “rooms” of your life to Him.
But you can’t do that without ejecting, rejecting and distancing yourself from all the ways of the world and its god – Satan.
The watchmen are now seeing the escalation of all the Biblical prophetic events. We are now nearing the birth of the most glorious, wonderful, spectacular new world called the Millennium, which comes right after the tribulation, which we will miss in a pre-tribulation rapture.
But all of this is preceded by birth pangs and labour pains. This is where we are now. It is an extremely important and exciting time to be here in God’s kingdom as His servants.
Mark 13:37 “What I say to you I say to all: Watch!”
Amos 7:7-8 “Behold the Lord stood on a wall made with a plum line, with a plum line in His hand. And the Lord said to Amos, ‘What do you see?’ And I said, ‘A plumb line.’ The Lord said: ‘Behold I am setting a plum line in the midst of My people Israel; I will not pass by them anymore.’”
I took this picture in a private game reserve called Mabula, owned by a friend of mine. It’s a beautiful place not far from my home. This is him playing with the lions, which are okay with him but not others!

Shalom and grow in grace!
