- Turkey has allied herself militarily with Libya in the last few days. This echoes the war dubbed WW111 of Ezekiel 38 & 39.
- Ongoing troubles in the US and many other nations are causing large numbers of Jews to make enquiries about returning to Israel. (When the Lion roars, His children will return, trembling from the West (Hosea 11:10)
- Israel launches attack on Hamas in response to their rocket attack on Israel. Israel launches new spy satellite. Israel launches attack on Iranian bases in Syria. “Mystery” explosions continue in Iran.
- Bubonic plague identified in China.
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
This verse, below was given to me by our Lord in December last year to give to you as the crowning verse for 2020. This was just before the corona-virus became a world pandemic:
The heading is, “Babylon humiliated.” End-time Babylon is the modern world system:
Isaiah 47:10-11 “You have trusted in your wickedness. You have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you; You have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one besides me.’ Therefore evil shall come upon you and you shall not know from where it arises, and trouble shall fall upon you. You will not be able to put it off, and desolation shall come upon you suddenly.”
Psalm 47:5 “God has gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.”
Psalm 17:15 “As for me, I will see Your face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied when I awake in Your likeness.”
Psalm50:5 “Gather My saints together to Me, those who have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice.”
Isaiah 26:19 “Your dead shall live; together with my dead body they shall arise. Awake and sing, you who dwell in the dust; for your dew is like the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.”
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose of this report is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah.
10th July 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Dreams visions and watching:
Truth stands and endures – forever.
The biggest priority of life is getting right with God after your initial salvation. It takes all your life, but what a wonderful life it is!
More and more you should be feeling that you don’t belong in this world – how right you will be, and how right with God you will be. (1 John 5:4)
The uncorrupted, pure word of God inspired and led by the Holy Spirit is the believer’s prime source of spiritual food.
Other helpers include the work of the watchman, dreams and visions.
This is the final countdown! All these things are of critical importance now.
The office of the watchman is a unique high calling of the Lord. There are numerous qualifications and prerequisites, least of which is being right all the time. Of course you can be wrong regularly, but then you’re not a watchman of the Lord, you are a self- opinionated speculator.
Being right in watching and what you see is a prerequisite of your track record.
Other qualifications are: The application of the cross and being humble before God, with pride destroyed. Being Spirit filled and operating in the revelatory gifts of the Spirit. Not being a novice, and being extremely well versed in the Bible.
There are some so-called watchmen out there, who are purely self-seekers, using the office for their personal exaltation. They always talk about themselves and have an air of pride about them.
Job 27:18 “The watchman has a house made like a moth.” (Full of holes to see out of. It’s not permanent either, as he moves on to watch from other locales.)
Jeremiah 51:12 “Set up a standard on the walls of Babylon (end-time world) and make the guard strong. Set up the watchmen and prepare the ambushes, for the Lord has both devised and done what He spoke against the inhabitants of Babylon.”
If you kick God out of society, you are not left with a vacuum or a godless society. You end up ruled by the god of this world. Satan comes in like an unrestrained flood. Things end up seven times worse.” (Luke 11:26)
A nation under God includes the Godly institutions of authority and their laws.
The law of the land has the authority of God behind it. The law of self-will has the authority of Satan-filled self behind it. The law of the jungle has the law of apes behind it. This is where the world is!
The world is being led by the blind, declaring “I am,” and “Me now” and “Has God said.”
But they are soon going to run into all the King’s men (and women) and all the King’s horses! The King will declare “I AM and there is none like Me.” and all the King’s horses will say – “Amen.”
Dreams and visions:
Dreams and visions can take many forms. They may contain a personal message or a corporate message for the larger body of Messiah. They may contain a teaching snippet, a warning of things to come or an encouragement.
Dreams and visions are very much part of the unfolding of these end times. Spirits, both of God and the devil are and will use dreams. Discernment is needed like never before.
Personally, I’ve had dreams from the Lord about deep tranquillity and glorious peace, with numerous strange looking animals around and indescribable sounds. I’ve had many dreams that would get me committed to the Looney bin if I mentioned them.
I have also had a few very short encounters or incidents where I was awakened suddenly in the early hours with a dramatic loud trumpet blast and on another occasion, my name being called, and on another occasion, the sound of a loud alarm going off. None of these had any natural explanation.
These all had timely meanings for me. There are very many teachers out there with deep personality problems of insecurity, who use things like dreams and visions to create manipulation to give themselves the self-importance they look for. “Buyer beware!”
A vivid dream can be a powerful thing in your life. It can create a ‘reality’ that only dreams are made of! You can and should pray often for the Lord to give you godly dreams that are meaningful or even prophetic. As said, be discerning.
It is important to identify what is from God, and what is the normal rambling of a dream.
Dreams are always subjective and secondary to the written word. If not, reject them.
Be careful of the 100% ers! These are the people who put out a video and tell you with great glee that their dream or vision is 100% of the Lord. The moment you encounter the 100% crowd, know that it is 100% not of God. I recall dozens of 100% ers “confirming through a dream or vision, the hogwash of the Revelation 12-sign teachers! Apart from forever discrediting themselves, they caused enormous damage to body of Messiah and the word of prophecy.
I have never known one single dream or vision claimed to be 100% of the Lord, from anyone, that has come to pass – not one! They are manipulators.
Be careful also of the “God told me with an audible voice,” crowd – lairs all!
When it comes to anyone claiming to be a watchman or with regular dreams, visions, you can easily identify if he is called of the Lord by his track record.
Two important dreams / visions:
1) There is a video doing the rounds at the moment from Pastor Dana Corverstone, of three shocking dreams he had, which seemed to describe various events of the tribulation period, to occur within the next few months. His dreams seem to be genuine.
He did however exclude the rapture from the dreams and anything to do with Israel, which is central to prophecy. For this reason alone, I would be careful of putting too much weight on it. So what I have done is put it all on the shelf – and we will see!
Nonetheless there is severe, timely warning to the world in his dreams.
2) There is an Israeli Jew known only as Daniel, who has regular dreams about spiritual things. He reports on his latest dream with great urgency to the whole of Israel, though various media. He appeals, begs and pleads for the Jews of the world to return urgently to Israel, because those host nations are about to “explode.”
Here is the tragic drama: He says to all Jews – “Come home, Messiah is here already and He is waiting, but God will not give Him the sign to be revealed yet. He says that Jews living in America are preventing the revealing of Messiah, until they come home.”
If you see Messiah on the ground anywhere in Israel, you are seeing the antichrist! The true Messiah comes to the ground at the Second Advent, seven years from His coming in the air at the rapture.
So this dream and vision is setting people up to receive the antichrist!
Do you see how dangerous a dream / vision can be?
Don’t be led by dreams. Be led by the Spirit of God. Dreams are confirmers with few being primary messages from the Lord.
As we move forward into this darkening spiritual night let me again assure you that the purpose of The Prophetic Scroll is to inform your head, fill your heart, warn you, and warm you to God. It is to help you grow and be stable, so that you may be presented blameless to God. It is to support and back up the many ministries serving our Lord excellently. It is to identify frauds, fakes, flakes and counterfeits. It is to reveal with revelation, the glories that lie before us.
Isaiah 21:6 “...Go set a watchman, let him declare what he sees.”
Luke 12:36-37 “You yourselves (Israel) be like men who wait (watch) for their master, when He will return from the wedding, that when He comes and knocks, they may open to Him immediately. Blessed are those servants, whom the master, when he comes will find watching...”
Who is this returning from a wedding, and what wedding? Who are the people to whom He is retuning? The return after the wedding (where the church becomes the bride of Messiah) is at the Second Coming and the return is for the tribulation saints!
Edition 254. April 8th 2015
Pay-back time for the world:
Pay-back time for the world:
Romans 12:19 “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay says the Lord.”
We are now very close to many prophetic things falling into place fast. We are approaching the most dramatic times the world has ever seen.
We are also approaching a major change in the ways and methods God deals with the world. The tribulation period is a new dispensation. Actually, it completes the dispensation of the Old Covenant, being the final seven years of Daniel’s 70 weeks of years. It signals the most demonstrative direct judgements of God on this Messiah-rejecting world. Nature goes crazy, God’s wrath is poured out with His direct judgements, and Satan goes crazy pouring out his wrath.
The people of the world turn in their wrath and hostility towards God because of His wrath. They finally wake up to the fact that God is a judge of sin and grace has run its course.
The true Church will not be here during this time, but we will see the forerunners of it all.
We are heading for dramatic events all at the same time. With all the world’s efforts to bring peace to the Middle East and the region – nothing at all has improved – nothing! In fact it’s all getting much worse very fast, just as the Bible predicts.
Hezbollah has recommitted itself to the destruction of Israel. Iran has committed itself to the destruction of Israel even while nuclear limitation talks were on the go. Hamas is committed to the destruction of Israel and is building new tunnels. Syria wants to destroy Israel. All the other off-shoot Palestinian organisations want to take over all of Israel.
Israel on the other hand has declared its desire to live in peace with the Arabs. Israel has never once said it wants to destroy these Arab peoples and organisations. Of course Israel has threatened to and has defended herself.
All of this has the potential to explode into world war – and it will. This is just why the nations of the world want peace in the Middle East. They have tried everything possible to bring peace and will continue to try.
Incredibly, the Bible shows how to do this. God has a plan to bring peace to the world. His plan is in His book for all to see. All they have to do is open it read it and do it.
But God’s plan also reveals what will happen to those who try to bring peace to the world their own way, just as at Babel.
God will pay back the world’s peace seekers with war and destruction.
God is going to pay back everyone for their sins. Everyone on this planet has to pay for sin. The entire world will pay and will not be let off the hook on the smallest most insignificant sin, even sins of thought.
There is no pay-back for our sins.
All true believers are forgiven and cleansed of all sin through the cross of Messiah. Yes there was a pay-back for our sins, but it was paid in full by our Lord.
Continued sin will get us out of fellowship with our Lord but not out of relationship. We are forever forgiven with our “sins removed as far as the east is from the west”!
Perhaps the most dramatic comparative study you can do is on the difference between the Judgement seat of Messiah, which is exclusively for born-again believers and is all about being rewarded, and the Great White Throne Judgement, which is exclusively for unbelievers and is all about them being cast into hell because they trusted in their ‘good works’ to be saved.
One of the wonderful things that makes us Christians unique is this fact that we are totally cleansed by the blood of the cross of Calvary. We have been made holy and pure in our born-again spirits. Yes our souls still need to be renewed, but we are right with God now.
What makes us unique is the fact that we are the only group of people on earth who are already fully right with God relationally, and we are becoming right experientially in thought and action. All other religions work from the outside in. They involve their slaves trying to be right with some big angry God. True Biblical Christianity works exactly the other way. We are made right in spirit first, right in the inside of our hearts and this works through to the outside.
All religions work on the cursed principle of salvation by law and works. We are saved by faith and grace and the difference is as big as the universe.
Perhaps the main reason the unsaved world hates true born-again believers is because we don’t pay for our sins and they do.
Although we as true believers through the shed blood of Calvary will never pay for our sins, there is an element of pay-back that we ought to take note of.
In eternity we will all be the same in terms of a sin-free foundation, but what we have built on that foundation now this side of heaven, will make us all forever different from each other. Our works don’t come into the picture for salvation, but our works after salvation do come into the reward picture. We will be rewarded for works done by and through the leading of our Lord and the rewards will be eternal.
So, who gets hit with the pay-back?
The punishment of God for all our sins has been poured out on Yeshua at the cross. If you don’t have the substitutionary work of the cross in you working its saving power, you are lost and you are going to pay for it.
The whole unsaved world is going to pay for their sins and its going to be soon. The great big shock is that no one will be able to afford to pay the price!
Those who are unsaved are also those who have no idea how to obey the word of God or even know what it says.
2 Thessalonians 1:5-7 “...That you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer; since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you, and to give those who trouble you rest with us when the Lord Yeshua is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God and on those who do not obey the gospel.”
What a shocking verse this is!
You may really desperately want the most expensive diamond in the world. But very few can afford such luxury. If you can’t pay for it, you can’t have it. If you try to buy the diamond with fake money or a hand full of cow dung, you won’t take delivery of it. What is needed is the full price in real true money.
You see, no one can pay the price for their salvation. All of your works are like a handful of cow dung says the Bible. (Philippians 3:8). Perhaps one of the greatest curses to befall mankind is the Catholic created idea of buying salvation. It’s not practiced much today, but the idea is still there in most people, albeit modified.
All your good works are rejected by God as payment for salvation. The enormous great cost paid by our Lord involved great sacrifice and suffering – so much so that we could never pay the price ourselves.
Pain and suffering does do us good, but it has no value at all in terms of salvation.
So now the world stands wanting the most valuable diamond in the world, but is unable to pay. At the Great White Throne Judgement the works of the unsaved are found to be imperfect. The people are found to be bankrupt, and they are cast into hell.
So it is only those with perfect works that can be saved, because that’s God’s standard. There was only One person who met the criterion. It was our Lord and Saviour and He offers us that salvation as a free gift – no payment required!
The unsaved world can’t afford the price for salvation and they have to pay up. So, no price no salvation. Imagine believing the lies of the Catholic church that you can be saved by being good and then landing in hell with all the other good but bankrupt, broke people!
Imagine the great tragedy of that, when someone was standing right next to you all along offering to give you the payment and you rejected it because your reverend, bishop or minister told you that you don’t need it.
The lion is coming:
God is very clear in His word about certain things that will bring the world under His judgment. How the world handles Israel and the Jews will bring pay-back on those who ignore His word.
The Lion of the tribe of Judah, our Messiah, is returning to this earth soon. He is King of the Jews. He’s actually King of the entire universe and everything in it. Thanks to one US president – the Muslim in the White House, a large schism has just been created, causing a terrible separation between the US and Israel.
This has never happened before. In fact the relationship between the US and Israel has been the primary cause of the blessing on the US all these years.
This division is going to widen into an impassable gulf and will set the Lion, and her child, Israel, against the US. The US will pay for the betrayal. In fact I expect it all to begin to escalate right now.
●On the 4th April (Passover), Netanyahu said that any final deal with Iran must include Iran’s acceptance of Israel’s right to exist. The US State Department speaking for Obama said, “no way”. Perhaps the most shocking thing about that was that 90% of the mass-media never even reported on it.
America’s new policies on Israel will backfire. The US is now on a collision course with Israel and the living God and Israel.
We have now seen Obama betray Israel to Iran. He is most certainly a type of Haman. The writing is on the wall for Obama!
The US has made a deal with the world’s biggest liar. You can be sure that Iran will find a way around this deal.
During the negotiation Iran said that one thing that was not negotiable was the destruction of Israel. Iran has repeatedly called for Israel’s destruction. That is the key issue and was not even on the radar screens of the negotiators!
One of the very real possibilities is that Iran simply gets her nukes from North Korea, Russia or China.
This nuclear deal is not the best deal. It is not a deal that assures the safety of the US, Israel or the world. It is a deal that will invoke the wrath and anger of the living God against the enemies of Israel.
Obama has perhaps the worst record of any US President ever on keeping his word. How many times has he made empty threats and drawn a don’t-cross red-line situation. He is absolutely spineless, a true nothing!
The US will pay for endangering Israel like never before and one of the numerous ways that the US will pay is economically. An economic collapse of monumental proportions is coming soon. It will not be based on the underlying fundamentals of the economy. It will be based on sudden fear and panic entering the markets through some geo-political external market event.
Will this be an event from which the US will not rise again? No it won’t. This paves the way for WW111 and the Gog and Magog war of Ezekiel 38&39. In this war Russia attacks Israel with a number of allies. One of Russia’s allies is Iran (Persia, Ezekiel 38:5-6). But Israel has a number of allies as well.
Surprisingly, it seems apparent that one of these allies is the US. Israel’s allies are called “the young lions.” The lion is the symbol of Britain and the young lions then would be the nations that are offshoots of Britain, the US being the leader.
This war is won eventually by Israel and her allies. There is also a possible identification of the US in the prophecy of Isaiah 18, which has a positive outcome.
So, a possible scenario is that the US gets clobbered economically and in many other ways for throwing Israel under the bus. But it seems that the US does come to their senses and ends up supporting Israel.
Let me add that this is a possibility, nothing more.
Also bear in mind that Israel has a huge number of US allies within the general public and in many churches. Obama is almost like a Muslim on an island acting against Israel. The number of believers in the US who support Israel is not inconsequential. They are the “light on the hill” and the “salt of the earth” in regards to Israel.
So we must be careful and look a little deeper and further than the US government alone, but of course what the government does is a big deal.
One hateful group of people:
Revelation 11:18 “Your wrath has come. It is time to reward your servants the prophets and the saints and those who fear Your name, small and great and those who destroy the earth.”
Since we are talking about pay-back, I have to get this in. The verse above includes a certain type of person who is to come under the wrath of God. These are they that “destroy the earth”. All poachers, hunters, and those destroying nature and wildlife will meet their pay-back!
As a lover of nature environment and all things wild, I must say I am thrilled by this verse.
Try as they may, the unsaved will not escape punishment:
Because judgement and punishment are coming, does this make it God’s fault?
There is no university or any amount of learning and study you can do to become right with God. You can’t learn your way into salvation. There are no works you can do to be right with God. You can learn every word in the Bible off by heart, or learn the content of every document ever written and you will not be saved.
The most brilliant minds ever to walk this earth are in hell except for the few who were genuinely born again. All the world’s heroes are in hell. They were not born again.
What about the verse saying that our Messiah has removed and taken the sins of the world? (1 John 3:5) Well, it’s simple. He has taken the sins of the world upon Himself, but if you reject Him you reject this wonderful work of salvation through the cross, and you stand in your sin and will pay for them yourself. You can’t afford the price and will be cast into hell.
What if I told you not to go down that road because there is a bridge missing. What if I told you to go down this road because it’s safe all the way? Whose fault is it if you choose the former?
God has given us everything we need for a holy, godly successful life. If we go our own way, we are doomed and it’s our own fault.
My favourite chapter in the Bible is 2 Peter 1. I have studied every word of it and prayed it over and over more than any other. Here are a few verses:
2 Peter 1:3-5 “His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”
The Bible says that the message of salvation is so simple a child or a wayfaring man won’t go wrong in it. (It is so simple it has become a stumbling block to countless minds.)
Do you want to try and enter eternity by paying for your own sins? Do you want to try to make it based on your wonderful great works and what a special person you are? Do you want to tell God how great you were? Do you want to trust some idiot reverend committing your soul to God at your funeral, as if he even could?
►Do you want to be met as you step into eternity by Mussolini, Mandela, Muhammad, Michael, Mercury and a host of world leaders and celebrities?
If your answer to these questions is yes, here are some most tragic verses for you:
Isaiah 14:9-11 “Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming. It stirs up the dead for you, all the leaders of the world it has raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations (to meet you). They all speak and say to you; ‘Have you also become as weak as us? Your pomp (pride) is brought down to Sheol ...”
You see, you can have these world leaders and celebrities arise to meet you. They will sit down with you and ask you questions about your life! But this is not a meeting you want to have anything to do with; it takes place in hell!
Here is the other side of this story:
Hebrews 12:1 “Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and sin which so easily ensnares us and let us run with endurance the race that is set us before us.”
My life’s objective and motivation is to help you prepare for eternity. Sometimes I don’t have the words to express myself, so all I can do is try. We can’t go back and do it again; we only get one shot at life. Yes we can “redeem the time” by changing course, but once we cross the line, that’s it. I have no desire to prove myself right and others wrong or any such thing.
My life’s motivation is to see you encounter God’s best. Understand that salvation is free but after that it will cost you everything you are! It may be costly, but it will be more worth it than you can ever imagine.
My friends, these are all important issues. Time is running out fast. Some people will make it into heaven “so as by fire” and have all their works go up in a puff of smoke. Of course they will have made it and be overjoyed at that. Others will have an “abundant entry into heaven.”
Unfortunately the majority of people will not make it at all because they were not saved, thinking that God will smile on them because they were more good than bad in this life and they had good motives.
This is one of my mixed media, collage creations. I’ve used organic themes and introduced an ethnic feel as well.
