|This ministry has a distinct kingdom, Messianic vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for the Jewish people and the church. My position is pre-trib! Personally: I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share these great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God.|

- The impasse continues, with very little new prophetic news right now.
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
Deuteronomy 7:6 “You (Israel) are a holy people to the Lord your God, who has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth.”
1 Chronicles 21:1 “Now Satan stood up against Israel...”
Zechariah 3:2 “The Lord said to Satan, the Lord rebuke you Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you.”
2 Chronicles 33:4 “...The Lord said, My name shall be in Jerusalem forever.”
Psalm 125:3 “The sceptre of wickedness will not rest on the land allotted to the righteous.”
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah and to identify the rift, and the needed restoration. There is much in the church that needs to change before it can be fully reconciled with the Jew. Likewise, changes in Jewish thinking are also needed.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
The word’s way:
Today it is very difficult to find a satisfactory church. It’s absolutely not because people are looking for a perfect church, or not out of rebellion either, although those problems have always existed.
It is simply because so few churches are preaching the entirety of the gospel (Hebrews 6:1-2) It’s because so many have fallen into the satanic trap of replacement theology and because so many are mixing the word of the world with the word of God.
So many who are filled with the Spirit and moving forward, get drawn back by their church and as a result they leave and try to fly alone.
Solitude is essential for the Christian at times, but not isolation. The church is not going away; it is built on the Rock. Organised, institutionalised churchianity, particularly denominationalism, is sinking and will continue to do so.
The big thing is don’t let your spiritual growth be stunted. If you have to leave a church, and you feel that’s the leading of the Spirit – that’s fine, but don’t then isolate yourself. Seek to find like minded believers, seek prayerfully to find people that can share deeply with and relate to as family.
Many times institutional churches hate you leaving them, because that then prevents them from controlling you. There’s a fine dividing line of error and truth behind control and church discipline!
The Prophetic Scroll will always have your absolute best godly interests at heart. You will always find food for your soul here. But be aware that this ministry can’t take the place of personal fellowship.
The Christian friends you make should be - forever friends. We are all going to meet in glorious unrestricted fellowship in eternity soon, so value the people who God brings into your life now.
I’m reminded of David lamenting at the loss of his son. Here is the story:
2 Samuel 12:23 “Now he is dead, why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him but he will not come to me.
Note that David sees the death of his son as a temporary event. He says that he will go to him again, which is in eternity.
You will see your family members again in heaven, if they were saved when they died.
Exactly the same thing applies to all true church members! So impute some value to them now, because we are all due for a meeting in glory!
Many people may think they have live a good life and gone to church on Sunday’s to crown it, but it’s all superficial with no enduring results; and many churchgoers have not even been born-again.
What a terrible thing to have lived a “successful” life and then find out that you wasted every second of it - remaining unsaved till death.
Colossians 3:23-24 “Whatever you do, do it heartily as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance, for your service to the Lord.”
As we look to our heavenly abode and not at the things of this earth that are seen, we see and hear some wonderful things – if only by spirit at this stage. (2 Corinthians 4:18)
Hebrews 13:14 “Here we have no continuing city, but we seek the one to come.”
God speaks from the mountains!
There is so much that was said and done by God on the mountains. Some of these include: Mount Moriah, Mount Sinai, Mount Ararat, Mount Carmel, Mount Nebo, the Mount of Olives and others. But it is the Mount of transfiguration (Tabor) I want to draw your attention to for a moment.
Yeshua went up the mountain with three of His disciples. Everything was normal, while they looked at the things they could see. Suddenly Moses and Elijah appeared with our Lord, and the disciples were stunned.
Have a look at this wonderful description:
Luke 9:29-31(Amp) “The appearance of His countenance became altered and His raiment became dazzling white, glistening – flashing with the brilliance of lightning, and behold, Moses and Elijah were conversing with Him, who appeared in splendour and majesty and brightness...”
This was a heavenly glory shining from within our Lord and all about Moses and Elijah too. This was something those disciples had never seen before.
If ever there was a description of the aspects of supernatural state - that is it!
Peter, James and John had no idea what they were about to see as the climbed the mountain, but it must have left them shocked beyond measure. Note also that they all knew it was Moses and Elijah, indicating that we will all know who’s who in heaven.
The point is that there is so much supernatural glory coming, that we cannot even begin to comprehend it all.
Whatever you do, don’t give up. Press ahead and go forward, my good friends.
No, you are not only human! You are human now and divine now and about to be filled with the very glory of God forever.
I have spoken a lot about rewards of late. Here are a few more items and also some indicators of what will cause the loss of eternal reward. Our reward state is fixed and is eternal.
Here are some key things that we will be rewarded for:
●Deeds or works, ●biblical wisdom, ●evangelism, ●giving in His name, ●confidence in Him, ●diligently seeking Him, ●prayer and fasting, ●endurance, ● seeing the unseen.
Here are some things that will cause the loss of rewards:
●Backsliding, ●trusting in your own self-effort, ●worldliness, ●submitting to the demonic or any form of witchcraft and legalism, ●rejection of the gifts of the Spirit, ●submission to false doctrine, ●attacking harming or causing God’s people to stumble. ●Measuring yourself by yourself and the modern world. ●Comparing yourself with modern churchianity. ●Seeing the seen.
Revelation 22:12 “Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me to give to everyone according to his work.”
2 Corinthians 4:6 (Amp) “For God who said, ‘let light shine out of darkness’, has shone in our hearts so as to beam forth the Light for an illumination of the knowledge of the majesty and glory of God in the face of Yeshua the Messiah.”
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!
