24th January 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
More on 2020:
I have spoken on 2020 before, but this is an extension to my previous predictions.
I recently watched a compilation video of prophecies for 2020 by various Christian teachers, all put together. Let’s just say I rejected it all! It was nothing but pampering, financial promises for giving, man-pleasing, comfort-zone assuring, and of course all to the tune of “The Lord told me.”
They were all about “me, myself, and I”, the “me-now” materialistic, worldly church.
Of course they all missed the big prophetic events of our time – Israel!
So what is the Lord saying for 2020?
2 Chronicles 20:20 “O Judah and your inhabitants of Jerusalem, believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established. Believe His prophets and you shall prosper.” (Note the verse number above and below)
Exodus 20:20 “Moses said to the people, ‘Do not fear; for God has come to test you, and that His fear may be before you, so that you may not sin.’”
Our Lord is saying that this will be the year Israel becomes prophetically central.
This will be the year of the true church standing as a “foundational pillar.” (1Timothy 3:15) upon which the Israeli dimension of His kingdom may rest. He is saying that He will use certain “watchmen opposite watchmen at the gate.” (Isaiah 52:8, 62:6)
These selected watchmen will together watch out for Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews. They will watch for the coming fall of the world! End-time Babylon the great, is a type of the world-system and it is due for a great fall.
Jeremiah 51:10-11 “The Lord has revealed our righteousness, come let us declare in Zion, the works of the Lord our God...His plan is against Babylon to destroy it.”
Isaiah 21:6-9 (The fall of Babylon) “The Lord said to me: ‘Go set a watchman, let him declare what he sees’...Babylon is fallen is fallen...”
The call of the watchman is to watch over words of truth and to watch for the enemy on the inside. It is to watch for all things prophetic relating to Israel, the church and the timing of it all.
A watchman speaks guides and warns, but you cannot speak without seeing first. The true watchman sees God’s word with substantial knowledge of it and revelation-eyes.
They will watch for Israel’s coming sight of the lifted veil and the falling veil of blindness on much of the church in pride.
The section of the church falling deeper into blindness will have their own “watchmen”, united as champions of deceptive error, leading their people to “find their lives in the world”! (Matthew 10:39, John 12:25)
The big message for 2020 is the veil lifting and a veil falling.
God’s work with and in Israel will become predominant, central and in the forefront. It will also be the great divider. It will divide between those who love the truth unreservedly, and those who don’t.
The 2020 church that stands with God’s plans for Israel will be persecuted and attacked, by many inside the corrupted church, and those outside in the world. But it will be blessed of God.
2020 is also the Hebrew year 5780, which translates as the 17th Hebrew letter “Pey” which means “mouth.” It symbolises victory. It has secondary meanings: “Speak”, “Blow”, and “Scatter.” The numeric value of “pey” is 80, which is prophetically significant.
This is the year of the mouth of the prophets and watchmen seeing and speaking for God. It will be the year of prophets and watchmen delivering guidance and blows to those in perpetual error.
It will also be the year of the blabber-mouths of the false prophets, who scatter rather than unify, and those who just talk plain rubbish in the name of the Lord.
The start of Israel’s salvation:
Joel 2:32 (Addressed to Israel). “It shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. From Mount Zion and Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, as the Lord has said, among the remnant whom the Lord calls.”
Romans 10:9 (Heading: Israel needs the gospel) “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Yeshua the Messiah, and you believe in your heart, that God has raised Him from dead, you will be saved.”
Psalm 80:5-7 “You have fed them (Israel) with the bread of tears, and given them tears to drink in great measure. You have made us a scorn to our neighbours, and our enemies laugh amongst themselves. Restore us O God of hosts. Cause Your face to shine and we shall be saved.”
Hosea 14:1-2-3 “O Israel, return to the Lord your God, for you have stumbled because of your iniquity. Take words with you, and return to the Lord, and say to Him, ‘Take away all iniquity; receive us graciously, for we will offer the sacrifices of our lips. (Repentance)
The Prophetic Scroll:
The overall purpose of The Prophetic Scroll (TPS) and me personally, is to glorify our Lord and His kingdom. It is to bring knowledge, understanding and wisdom to you of these things, particularly through the prophetic word of God. It is to warn, inform and reveal.
Job 22:28 “You will also declare a thing and it will be established for you; so light will shine on your ways.”
The purpose of TPS is to present to you enlightened, spirit-led truth, without apology or the approval of man, denomination or institution, with no self-seeking. It is to stand with God’s exciting, dramatic plan for Israel and the church.
The problem today is that most churches don’t teach eschatology at all, so their congregations are largely in the dark.
There is a certain dryness and powerlessness in them, to say nothing of the fact that their spiritual ignorance lets the devil in with his “wisdom.” They won’t stand in the storms.
There’s a new church forming! It is doctrinally pure, with no mixture with Babylon, clean and glorious. This is just as the wide-road church plunges into deeper darkness.
Your own goals for the time ahead should include a greater depth of death to self and the world and strong determination to follow our Lord to glory, no matter what.
Don’t get bent out of shape with things that don’t matter. Don’t worry about pleasing others or what they will think. Don’t be one of those with regrets when you fly into the kingdom of glory.
Set your goal and focus on glorifying God in your life. These things you will never regret and be eternally thankful for.
O, yes – will it be Rosh Hashanah this year? Stay tuned!
Edition 231 October 29th 2014
Will He find faith on the earth when He comes?
Will He find faith on the earth when He comes?
Luke 18:8 “...When the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?” (Amplified = “Will He find persistent faith on the earth.”)
This is a very strange verse when you think about it. Who is it referring to?
Firstly it is THE faith being spoken of. Our Lord would never question the faith of the Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus, would He? Secondly, this is an end-time scenario. It is speaking of “when He comes.” And thirdly it is “real” or genuine faith being questioned? The implication is that the earth will be filled with those of little or no real faith in Messiah and His word.
There are many interpretations of this verse and a fair amount of disagreement, but in this edition I want to use it at face value and apply it to us now, and the soon-coming tribulation period.
We can be sure of one thing; if our Lord Himself asks the question in such a pointed way and it relates to our time period, it is worth taking note of, don’t you think?
Firstly, what is faith and the lack of it?
We all know the well-used regular definitions of faith used by the prosperity crowd. Of course any Biblical definition is correct, but I want to add another dimension.
The faith is all encompassing of the word of God. We are to have a growing active faith in the entire Bible correctly divided and applied into our lives. It is the summation of all that we believe spiritually and includes all of the doctrine of Messiah as revealed in the verse below. (There are numerous other parallel verses)
Hebrews 6:1-2 “...Let us go on to perfection after laying the foundation of repentance from dead works (new birth) and faith towards God, of the doctrine of baptisms (plural = adult water baptism and baptism in the Spirit), of laying on of hands (through which the gifts are imparted), the resurrection of the dead (includes all eschatology), and of eternal judgement (believers reward, and the doctrine of hell towards unbelievers.)”
All of the major doctrines of our Lord are found wrapped up in this short passage above.
We are to have faith, trust, belief and commitment to the entirety of the Bible as led by the Spirit of God.
The opposite of faith is faithlessness or lack of trust and commitment. Fear, doubt and unbelief also come into the picture. If faith comes by hearing and doing the word of God (Romans 10:17), faithlessness comes by not hearing, ignoring and not knowing the word of God. Faithlessness also comes by pure rebellion and rejection of God’s word. (Mark 9:19).
The Faith here, has little or nothing to do with the traditions of the church or following the faith of this denomination or that. And it has absolutely nothing to do with faith in the so-called church fathers and their beliefs. In fact you need to use your faith to rid yourself of all of that garbage.
Who is being referred to; “Will He really find faith on the earth when He comes.”
Those who are taken in the rapture of the Church would obviously have faith. So we can dismiss them as the ones being questioned by our Lord.
Those saved in the tribulation period, called ‘tribulation saints’, most of who will be martyred, will have persistent, real faith and be saved, so we can dismiss them as the ones being questioned by our Lord.
Unbelievers at the time of the rapture and the Second Coming obviously have no faith, so we can dismiss them as the ones whose faith is being questioned by our Lord. They however, may well be implicated in the negative. In other words, they will be faithless in answer to our Lord’s question.
So, who are we left with? It is those who profess to be Christians. It is those who are traditional Christians. It is also those who to their surprise, are left behind at the rapture.
The root of faithlessness:
We are talking about the “I’m okay” crowd of so-called Christians. We are talking about those who profess to be Christians. They go to church, they pray, they try to be good, they think and say that they have faith, but they are greatly lacking in saving faith and grace. They are even more lacking in “continuing, persistent, faith”. That is the faith needed to keep themselves on track with our Lord and forever moving forward with Him.
But our Lord says, “Do they really have faith.” He sees through them. He sees through their superficiality. He sees that they are lukewarm or spiritually dead.
These are church- goers who are consumed with self, the world and the demonic in ignorance. They live for self, to please and glorify self. They live to hear another cross-less sermon on how God loves them and how they can get rich and become successful in and of the world.
The people of great regret:
There is one company or group of people that will soon be the most regretful, shocked and saddened people ever. They will be stopped in their tracks. Some will become furiously angry, screaming the odds at God. Some will commit suicide, but most will ultimately be forced to look to themselves in shattering shock!
These are people left behind at the rapture. They thought they were Christians, because they went to church and made all the right noises, but their Christianity was nothing more than a veneer.
In terms of numbers, there will be few saved (a remnant) compared to those lost. That’s a consistent theme of the Bible! Do not take it lightly.
The imminent, great danger for the backslider:
There really are only two types of believers. There are those moving forward all the time with our Lord, following Him where He goes and those following the world system where it’s going. I am not referring here to the person who has not had an opportunity to grow in faith, but those who have fallen away, or are in that process of backsliding.
You will always be moving along with our Lord, or moving along with the world.
The Bible talks of God loving the backslider, but that doesn’t mean He loves the backslider’s spiritual position. It means there is hope for the backslider to slide-back to faith in our Lord.
But be warned. Backsliding is not static. It is an ongoing, developing journey. It ends in the rejection of faith in our Lord. It ends in hell.
The ‘church’ puts its faith in Satan!
Many years ago when I was involved in missionary work in the rural areas of some African countries, I was often surprised that the masses would easily put their faith in our Lord. Then I realised why. They had a host of gods and to add our Lord to the list was no problem. There were a lot fewer converts when these people were instructed to make our Lord their only God and reject all the others.
You may think that’s obvious. But the church has and is doing just the same thing except it’s not a witchdoctor but the world system and its god that are being blended into their beliefs.
Today the biggest problem is a lukewarm church believing in our Lord and dancing with the devil in the world at the same time.
Today the pressures to conform to and accept the doctrines of the world as presented by the mass- media are extremely powerful.
Most don’t know it, but the church is full of ancient doctrines of demons. Most of the traditions of the church were born in hell, and need to be rejected.
Evil spirits in the church:
The character of the true church has been so polluted with the demonic that in many respects it is unrecognisable. Much of the modern church is characterised by following occult, pagan practises and traditions:
Christmas, Easter, Lent, infant sprinkling and much more originated in Babylon. Powerful evil doctrines are prevalent like Replacement Theology, the elevation of the priesthood above the laity (Nicolaitanism); the elevation of the doctrines of the so-called church fathers and much more.
Evil spirits are also responsible for the removal of major doctrines like eschatology, teaching on Israel, the Jews and Jerusalem in prophecy.
The true Church is led by the Holy Spirit and Spirit-filled ministers.
The false church is led by deceived ministers, who themselves are led by their gods, CNN, the BBC, Sky and the mass-media.
The world’s mass-media and its twin, the world of celebrity, are the ministers to the masses. They are the ministers to the faithless church.
I’m not playing games with words! Think about it...everyone has faith in something or someone. Most have faith in the erroneous view that they are saved because they are more good than bad. If you don’t have real faith in our Lord, by default you do have faith in the world’s ministers, the media.
Has your faith been tested? Will you endure the very soon coming terrible hardships of the labour pains and forerunners to the tribulation? Remember that “real faith” means persistent or enduring faith!
Previously, I’ve seen much hardship, death and destruction as a newsman and war correspondent. Today I’m shocked to see how easily people get freaked out and have their faith rocked when only minor disasters come their way.
Many people have faith, but it won’t endure testing. The scriptures paint a shocking picture of shipwrecked faith, believers falling into deception and many falling from the faith in these last days. Please don’t be one of them.
Huge tsunami’s and earthquakes, in which hundreds of thousands get killed, are child’s play compared to what’s coming. Over 4 billion will die in the tribulation. True Christians won’t see that, but we will see the run-up to it all.
Today we are seeing a breakdown in morals and virtues. The infiltration of demons into the church is spreading like wild fire. We are seeing ever rising wars, rumours of wars, conflicts and terrorism. Diseases, pestilences, and natural upheavals are increasing dramatically. Israel, God’s time clock, is ticking away in the background.
Deuteronomy 32:20-26 “...They are a perverse generation, children in whom there is no faith. They have provoked Me to jealousy by what is not God; they have moved Me to anger by their foolish idols...I will heap disasters upon them; I will spend My arrows upon them. They shall be wasted with hunger, devoured by pestilence and bitter destruction; I will also send against them the teeth of the beasts, with the poison of the serpents of the dust. The sword shall destroy them outside; and there shall be terror inside...I will dash them in pieces.”
Will your faith be rocked?
If it will, perhaps it means that your faith is in your own self-preservation, self- indulgence and self- glorification. Is your faith dependant on the world continuing as always? If so, it is God Himself who is now warning you! He is saying to you now – “Your faith is questionable, it’s not real.”
Will you be one of those left behind? Will you be one of those “spat out” by our Lord? (Revelation 3:16). Will you be one of those told by our Lord, “You are dead though you live? (Revelation 3:1). Will you be one of those whom our Lord will “kill with death.”? (Revelation 2:23).
There is no harm in faith being tested. It is good. It proves sustainability and endurance. It secures us in His love. It makes us useable in His hands.
Which churches will die and why:
God has warned us in His word that may will lose faith, their love will grow cold, they will be spat out.
The single common denominator and cause is deception entering the church and leading it further and further off track. Our Lord warns five times alone against deception in His address to the disciples on the Mount of Olives.
False doctrine is not to be taken lightly!
The single biggest cause of deception and error entering the church is the removal or downplaying of the cross of Calvary. But there is much more to the story. God has provided “power tools” for His Church to use.
If you reject or will not use His provision, you will essentially be operating in your own strength. I would hate to be in the shoes of the churches that reject the baptism of the Spirit in these days of intensifying attacks and deception.
Jude 1:18-20 “There will be mockers in the last days who will walk according to their own lusts. These are sensual (lit=soulish) people, who cause division, not having the Spirit. But you beloved, building yourself up in your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit.”
A classic example is in the mess-up the denominational churches have made. They have created and spread discord and disunity in the name of our Lord. They have created doctrines of divisions. Those who accept and partake of the baptism of the Spirit have created a much more unified church.
The image above does not do the disunity justice. There should be 38,000 branches! What an abomination! Especially when our Lord requires unity and has provided the means to attain it!
Romans 16:17 “...Note those who cause divisions among you contrary to the doctrine you have learned and avoid them.”
Personally, I believe that as the end-time pressures intensify, so the wall of division will grow higher. But also, many will repent of their divisions and come in to a more unified Church like a flood.
Many within the Spirit-less church will come against the true Church in the end-times.
Matthew 24:10-12 “Then many will be offended, will betray one another and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will arise and deceive many and because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.”
The faithful Church:
1 Corinthians 1:10 “Now I plead with you brethren, by the name of our Lord, Yeshua the Messiah, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgement.”
The true Church speaks the same thing as others led by the Spirit. It is automatically one with all who are one in Spirit. The true Church is not concerned about all the divisions around and about and does not compare itself with them.
The true Church is and will be totally different from all man-made church denominations (the word means division.) It will have within it an element of the supernatural. It will be relevant to God’s word and not the world’s.
2 Corinthians 10:12 “For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.”
The faithful Church will be filled with “real persistent faith”. It is the faith of the Bible alone, interpreted and led by the Spirit of the living God. It is catastrophe-enduring faith and it is based on truth.
John 18:37 “Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”
So, “Will He find real faith on the earth when He returns?” The answer is, Yes He will and no He won’t.
The true Church which will be raptured will be found in real faith. Tribulation saints will be found in real faith. The professing church, left behind at the rapture will not be in real faith. Obviously all unbelievers will not be in real faith either.
Colossians 2:7 “So walk in Him, rooted and built up and established in the faith as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.”
Ephesians 3:17 “May Messiah dwell in your hearts through faith; being rooted and grounded in love.”
Jeremiah 17:7-8 “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord and whose hope is in Him. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river, and will not fear when the heat comes...nor will it cease from yielding fruit.”
I took this picture from my tent early in the morning in the Namib Desert, Namibia. That is a Gemsbok (Oryx). They can go for weeks without water.
