- Due to the fast changing prophetic news environment, check back here for any new or urgent updates that are important.
- The signing of the Abrahamic Accord at the White House later today is of no prophetic consequence on its own. Collectively with others it does have significance, but not Daniel 9:27
- Iraq (the home of Babylon) is reported to be lining up to make peace with Israel.
- There will be no talk of, or deal relating to the Temple Mount at this signing.
- Iran and friends threaten missile attack on Israel and the UAE because of their new friendship.
- Trump warns Iran of “1000-times harsher response” if Iran attacks US Ambassador to South Africa.
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.
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 243. January 20th 2015
What are the Israel signs now?
What are the Israel signs now?
The title image above shows the interior of the Holocaust Museum, Yad Vashem in Jerusalem and the exterior of the Shrine of Book museum in which the Dead Sea Scrolls are housed, also in Jerusalem.
The Shrine contains the words of prophecy that predicted the Holocaust, which are seen here in the victims now enshrined in Yad Vashem. The Shrine also contains the prophecies of the soon-coming Holocaust!
The Isaiah Scroll is one of the Dead Sea Scrolls. It is virtually the entire book of Isaiah, which goes a long way to proving the veracity of the Bible. Isaiah contains many prophecies of the sufferings of the Jews. It also contains the answer which is our substitute, the suffering servant, our Lord Yeshua in Isaiah 53.
Many of the prophecies of Isaiah contain a double reference and relate to times past and times now and just ahead.
This most certainly is the greatest drama the world has ever seen or known and it is all about to intensify. The stage is set, the actors are in place, the orchestra is warming up and the curtain is just starting to rise.
This drama sees more death and destruction upon this world than ever before, but it has a most glorious, wonderful conclusion, which we will have a brief look at. Unfortunately the political leaders of the day won’t be looking at this story of truth even though they the devil’s disciples are players themselves.
Whenever God moved with Israel in the past, Satan arose and tried to prevent it. This is the case now. The Jews are about ready to come to salvation in large numbers and we see Satan working through his chief agents - the mass-media and the world’s politicians.
Now have a look at this amazing prophecy:
Jeremiah 16:16 “Behold, I will send for many fisherman, says the Lord, and they shall fish them (Jews); and afterwards I will send for may hunters and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.”
The recent events of France and the soon coming anti-Semitic events of Europe and other nations are in fact the beginning of this verse of prophecy in Jeremiah. Fishermen lure and draw their prey, but hunters drive their prey. We are now at this changeover point. The Jews have been and are still being lured back to their land and hunted and driven back.
Wouldn’t it be something if a cartoon led to Jews returning to Israel in large numbers!
The shock of the nations and the Muslims:
Imagine going on a life’s journey and getting to the end and finding you were on the wrong road all along? I’m not talking here of a little mistake, but an enormous, massive mess-up that has resulted in millions of deaths and will result in many millions more!
This is the great mistake of the Pharaohs, the Caesars, all the Popes, Hitler, the denominational churches, many Charismatic churches, the world’s politicians, all the world’s mass media and all Muslims.
They all thought they could make world peace their way. In our day this is seen in the many efforts to divide and share Israel and Jerusalem among the peoples. Dividing the land in our day is seen in Joel 3:2. Note that it brings war and not peace. Dividing the city of Jerusalem is seen in Zechariah 12:2-3 and also brings war and not peace.
In a few previous editions, I’ve shared with you how the Muslim Quran instructs its followers to behead their enemies. I’ve shared on the Quran’s hatred for dogs. Now let me share with you what the Muslim Quran says about the ownership of Israel and who really owns the land, which would obviously include Jerusalem.
Here it is: “Allah gave the land of Israel to the Jews and will restore them to it in the end of days.” Sura 28: 5-6 “Allah gave the persecuted people (the Jews) dominion over the eastern and western lands, which we have blessed (East and west banks of Jordan River). Thus your Lord’s gracious word was fulfilled for the Israelites.”
Sura 17:104 “Before the end of days, God will bring the children of Israel to re-take possession of the land, gathering them from many different countries and nations.”
The two logos below, of the Palestinian Authority and Hamas are wrong by the confession of the Quran (above). Note the maps of Israel in green. They imply that all of Israel is theirs – the Palestinians!
Now let me give you a brief lesson from our Bible:
Ezekiel 20:41-42 “I will accept you (Israel) as a sweet aroma when I bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you have been scattered; and I will be hallowed in you before the Gentiles. Then you shall know that I am the Lord when I bring you into the land of Israel, into the country for which I lifted My hand in an oath to give to your fathers.”
Isaiah 11:11-12 “It shall come to pass in that day that the Lord shall set His hand a second time to recover the remnant of His people who are left...He will set up a banner for the nations, and will assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.”
There’s so much more to this story. If you want to look it up yourselves, you will see that the state of Palestine never existed. There are no real Palestinians from Palestine. These people are Arabs of numerous origins. There is no legitimate legal claim of the Palestinians to any territory within the borders of Israel. The borders of Israel will expand, not contract, by huge amounts in the near future. Do you think there’s a bit of controversy there? Go and look it all up – you will be shocked, and then excitied!
Genesis 17:7-8 “I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant to be God to you and your descendants after you. Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession, and I will be their God.”
Judges 2:1 “...I will never break My covenant with you.”
1Chronicles 16:17-18 “The covenant which God made with Abraham and his son Isaac and confirmed to Jacob as a statute, to Israel for an everlasting covenant, saying, to you I will give the land of Canaan as the allotment of your inheritance.”
So why do Muslims believe and act on the Quran’s command to kill the infidels, to kill dogs and yet they disbelieve its word on the ownership of Israel? You tell me! They will tell you that the later surahs and fatwas supersede the earlier ones, but nonetheless here we have it.
Wait! There’s more:
So now we see what our Bible has to say about God’s covenant promises to the Jews. But the Bible spells out just how it will take place as well. It speaks of the massive world-wide opposition in numerous verses, but also, much to the disgust of the mass-media, the mass-church, the masses of stupid politicians and all the world’s intellectuals, the Bible shows just how Israel will prosper while its Arab neighbours suffer.
Joel 3:18-20 “It shall come to pass in that day that the mountains shall drip with new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and the brooks of Judah shall be flooded with water...Egypt shall be a desolation and Edom a desolate wilderness because of violence (Lit-Chamac, Hamas in English) against the people of Judah, for they have shed innocent blood in their land. But Judah shall abide forever and Jerusalem from generation to generation.”
Obadiah 1:10 “For violence (Lit-Chamac, Hamas in English) against your brother Jacob (Israel) shame shall cover you and you shall be cut off forever.”
Isaiah 35:1-2 “The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them (Jews), and the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose; it shall blossom abundantly and rejoice...”
Ezekiel 36:35 “They will say, ‘This land that was desolate has become like the garden of Eden.”
Amos 9:13 “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him who sows seed; the mountains shall drip with sweet wine.”
And yes, there’s much more, but enough for now. You get the picture.
So, now we have an astonishing thing! The Quran and the Bible say exactly the same thing about the ownership of Israel. I wonder why CNN, BBC, SKY, NBC and the host of others dance to their own demonic tunes?
Imagine being so dumb, stupid, naive, blind, ignorant, and deceived as to think you know better than God! Let me tell you something CNN, BBC, SKY and others of the mass media – you are preparing the biggest killing fields in history.
Your boss, Adolf, would be very proud of you!
Here are two Hitler quotes that are so applicable to the modern media:
“If you tell a big enough lie, and tell it often enough, it will be believed.”
“How fortunate it is for leaders that the masses do not think.”
Appeasement and peace-making with Islam has never and never will work. The Bible tells me so!
Right now we see sympathy for the Jews because of the Paris attacks. It won’t last. The Bible predicts the exact opposite. Very soon the nations of the world will turn against Israel with a vengeance.
It was born in a day, just as the Bible said it would be (Isaiah 66:8).The pure language of Hebrew would be restored (Zephaniah 3:9). The Jews will return from the four corners of the world, first in their blindness. (Isaiah 11:11, Jeremiah 31:7-8). Jerusalem shall be restored to the Jews (Luke 21:24) All nations will come against Jerusalem to divide it. (Zechariah 12:2). Israel will be divided causing massive war (Joel 3:2). Israel will ultimately be invincible (Zechariah 12:6-9). The Jews will recognise their Messiah on their return to the land (Romans 11:25-26 and many others.)
As we look into the history of Israel and the Jewish people we see the supernatural hand of God at work. Do you think that’s suddenly going to stop now? Never – it is about to become even more miraculous, but with great trouble on the way, just as the Bible predicts.
The fall of Israel:
Exodus 34:11-14 “Observe what I command you this day. Behold I am driving out from before you the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite. Take heed to yourself, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you are going, lest it be a snare in your midst. You shall destroy their altars, break their sacred pillars and cut down their wooden images, for you shall worship no other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous is a jealous God.”
The people mentioned in the verse above are all the descendants and originators of the Arab peoples and through them the ‘Palestinians’ today. Do you see that section of the verse in “bold”? Look at it again. Netanyahu – go and look at the verse! Israel, do NOT make a covenant with them.
Exodus 23:32-33 “You shall make no covenant with them, nor with their gods. They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against Me. For if you serve their gods, it will surely be a snare to you.”
Unfortunately we know that Israel will make a deadly peace covenant of sorts with them. This will open the gates of tribulation, death and destruction on a massive scale.
This is where I believe the rapture takes place, just before the tribulation period begins. According to my calculations based on the scriptures, 4.5 billion people will die in the seven-year tribulation.
Micah 7:8-9 “Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; when I fall I will arise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord will be a light to me. I will bear the indignation of the Lord, because I have sinned against Him, until He pleads my case and executes justice for me; He will bring me forth to the light, and I will see His righteousness.”
Amos 9:15 “I will plant them in their land, and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord your God.”
Israel will soon fall hard, but she will arise – it’s coming soon.
Anti-Semitism will die:
Being on the losing side is such a failure. It’s fine to mess up, and fail and then get up, change direction and go the winning way. It’s not fine to fail and stay a miserable failure on the wrong course until you arrive in hell.
Today we are seeing a massive rise in anti-Semitism worldwide, but especially in Europe. You would think that Europe would have learnt from its past! No such luck! Europeans used to call Africa the “dark continent.” What an amazing turn of events. Europe today is more spiritually dark than the dark side of the moon!
With their dark demonic influences has come this new anti-Semitism and appeasement of the Muslims. We have not seen anything yet – it’s just starting up!
Of course it will backfire on them. It will simply chase the Jews back home, which the Bible predicts anyway. Europe, did you know you are helping God’s work?
Obviously it’s not just Europe. When the heat is really on it will be the whole world. Right now it’s Europe and the Muslim nations leading the anti-Semitism charge.
Do you want to see the futility of anti-Semitism? Let me show you the end of them:
Isaiah 60:14-15 “The sons of those who afflicted you shall come bowing to you, and those who despise you shall fall prostrate at your feet; and they shall call you the City of the Lord, Zion of the Holy One of Israel. Whereas you (Jews) have been forsaken and hated, I will make you an eternal excellence, a joy of many generations.”
Jeremiah 30:16-17 “All those who devour you shall be devoured; and all your adversaries, every one of them, shall go into captivity; those who plunder you shall become plunder, and all those who prey upon you, I will make a prey. For I will restore health to you and heal your wounds, says the Lord, because they called you an outcast.”
There are many more similar verses, but I hope, just from these two, you can see who the winning side is and who the big eternal losers are. Do you see the miserable end of anti-Semites here?
Why pray for peace of Jerusalem:
Psalm 122:6 “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May they prosper who love you.”
When we pray for the peace of Jerusalem we are praying for the return of our Lord and Saviour. The only way peace will come to Jerusalem is when the Prince of Peace walks in! So, in fact we are praying for all the events leading up to this to transpire quickly.
You can’t separate Jerusalem from Israel. The two are inextricably linked forever. All the covenants and blessing to Israel in the Bible obviously include Jerusalem even if it is not mentioned.
Genesis 12:3 “I will bless those who bless you (Israel) and I will curse those who curse you.”
Praying for the peace of Jerusalem is a critical prayer. It involves blessings and curses.
Psalm 132:13-18 “The Lord has chosen Zion; He has chosen it for His habitation: This is My resting place forever; Here I will dwell for I have desired it. I will abundantly bless her provision; I will satisfy her poor with bread. I will also clothe her priests with salvation...His enemies I will clothe with shame, but upon Himself, His crown shall flourish.”
Finally, praying for the peace of Jerusalem is not praying for a city. It is praying for the salvation of the people of Jerusalem – the Jews.
Why does the majority of the church sit back and have little or nothing to do with Israel especially in these days? It is because they are thieves. They have stolen all of God’s grace for themselves, thinking that they are the beginning and end of everything! They think that God has no real purpose for the Jews now or into the future.
Open your eyes church, there is so much more to the kingdom of God than your little institution.
The amazing, incredible, tragic, wonderful conclusion:
“Hell has opened her arms to receive you at your coming”, says the Bible. “Multitudes, multidudes in the valley of decision”, says the Bible. “I will open the spiritual eyes of the Jews, I will save you and you will be a blessing” says the Bible.
These are all critical issues – don’t underestimate them and don’t underestimate your own personal propensity to fall under the strong delusions and deceptions around today. You must use God’s provided weapons of spiritual warfare and you must know your Bible – led by the Spirit.
Zechariah 8:13 “It shall come to pass that just as you were a curse among the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you and you shall be a blessing.”
The Eye, the ear, the voice, the hand, and the sleeve:
Zechariah 2:8 “Thus says the Lord of hosts: He has sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you, for he who touches you (Jerusalem) touches the apple of His eye.”
Isaiah 55:3 Incline your ear, and come to Me. Hear and you shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you.”
Deuteronomy 4:30 “When you are in tribulation and all these things come upon you in the latter days, when you turn to the Lord your God and obey His voice, He will not forsake you, nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them.”
Isaiah 49:16 “See I have inscribed you (Zion) on the palms of My hands; your walls are continually before Me.”
Zechariah 12:10 “And I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me who they have pierced; they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son.”
Zechariah 8:23 “For thus says the Lord of hosts: “In those days ten men from every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, “Let us go with you for we have heard that God is with you.”
Today you can give yourself to the wisdom of the beast – the mass media (all of them) or to the wisdom of the living God. I tell you now, the words of the media are not just words; they are charged with the spirit of death and Satan himself.
In utter humility and with tears in my eyes, I say what a wonder it is to be on God’s side – the ultimate winning side.
O how I love my Lord and His word of truth and wisdom.
More and more, the mass- media is becoming the clear mouthpiece of Satan. They are Satan’s banner for the nations. You need to know these things.
But God has set up a banner for the nations. His banner is the opposite! His banner is everywhere the word of God is. It will prevail.
By the way, the reading of just these verses in this edition completely destroys the deadly deception of Replacement Theology.
I did this painting using various mixed media effects, blending abstract and organic themes together. I’ve used thin pieces of coloured glass in some areas.
I took this picture in a local game reserve close to my home. This is a White Rhino which is highly endangered but a little less so than the Black Rhino. It has a distinguishing big square lip and is quite docile compared to the aggressive Black Rhino. The horn is valued at $67,000 per kg. (More than gold). At the current rate of decline these magnificent animals will be extinct within a few years.
Shalom and grow in grace!
