- 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 255. April 15th 2015
The stormy, shifting desert sands:
The stormy, shifting desert sands:
Yemen is not in Bible prophecy, or is it? Well, it’s not in prophecy directly, but it most certainly is by implication and under previous ancient names. In fact the prophetic picture is frightening with implications for the whole world now!
The entire area is pure desert. Across the border in Saudi Arabia there are enormous stretches of desert. Across the western border in North Africa, again there are thousands of kilometres of desert sands.
These desert sands are soft and often blown about. Lately, the wind storms have been intensifying, blowing tons of desert dust across the entire region.
The image below, courtesy of NASA was taken on the 9th April and shows one of the massive sand storms sweeping the area of interest to us now.
These intensive dust storms transform the desert dunes, changing the whole landscape at times.
This is just what is happening on the socio-political scene in the area. We are seeing a dramatic shift in power bases. Right now we can’t see clearly through the “dust”, but we soon will!
You may be surprised to see and know just how this lot is working out and what the implications are for the world! Read on my friends.
Identifying the players:
Isaiah 21:1-2 “The burden against the wilderness of the sea. As whirlwinds in the south pass through, so it comes from the desert, from a terrible land. A distressing vision is declared to me; the treacherous dealer deals treacherously, and the plunderer plunders. Go up, O Elam! Besiege, O Media.”
Elam and Media are in territory that is today Iran. So this verse above is most certainly referring to Iran in these days. Elam is the area in which the nuclear reactor, Bushehr is located.
Yemen has been run by tyrants and madmen, and has been a home for terrorist organisations, but the government has had a slant towards the West. It has been seen as a shaky ally of the US.
Yemen’s neighbour, oil-rich Saudi Arabia has also been an ally of the US, but Yemen and Saudi Arabia have been arch enemies of each other. How quickly things have changed! Suddenly the Saudi King and leader is dead and Yemen is in violent war and turmoil with its leader and entire cabinet overthrown. These two prophetic events happened on the same day!
Further up the desert is Iran. As we know Iran is no friend of the US or Israel. But Iran is an ally of the forces now dominating Yemen. Iran hates Saudi Arabia and would love to see her humiliated and defeated as well.
In fact the current war in Yemen is a proxy war for Iran. They are sponsoring the rebels trying to overthrow Yemen.
But Iran has aspirations to bring the whole desert region under her control. Many believe that Iran will try to destabilise Saudi Arabia and turn it into a Shiite, Iran-controlled nation.
Iran’s apocalyptic worldview:
Iran’s worldview is centred on the appearance of the Islamic Mahdi and the spread and dominance of the Shiite sect of Islam.
This is what Iran said recently:
“Whoever guarantees the death of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, will guarantee the imminent appearance of the Mahdi. The establishment of a new Islamic civilisation is on its way.”
In a long intelligence video put out by Iran (which I have seen) they claim that soon after the death of the Saudi King the Islamic Mahdi will appear.
We must have at least a basic understanding of Sunni and Shiite hatred. The two sects of Islam have been at each other’s throats since the beginning of Islam. Nothing has changed. Most westerners don’t understand that there is an enormous fight on the go within Islam and between these two sects.
The common denominator is that they both hate Israel, the Jews and the West.
Enter Sheba and Dedan:
The great war of Gog and Magog also referred to as WW111 is outlined in Exekiel 38 & 39. The nations mentioned come against Israel and attack her. On the attacking side we see the nations of Gog &Magog, Rosh, Meshach, Tubal, Persia, Ethiopia, Libya, Gomer, and Togarmah.
Then further on in the chapter we see the defenders of Israel her allies -in this massive nuclear war.
Ezekiel 38:13 “Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish, and all their young lions will say to you, ‘Have you come to take plunder? Have you gathered your army to take booty, to Cary away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods and to take great plunder?’”
If you know Bible prophecy, the names Sheba and Dedan should be ringing bells! This prophecy is said to occur in the latter days. It is still to come. (Ezekiel 38:16)
►Sheba was the ancient name for Yemen and Dedan was the ancient name for Saudi Arabia. (See map above.)
“The merchants of Tarshish” can be identified in this map below:
Tarshish was a sea port in the south of Spain. The merchants traded by ship with a nation known for its tin in those days. It became known as Bri-tin or Britain today. The symbol of Britain is a lion. The “young lions” of this prophecy would then be the offshoot or commonwealth nations, The US, Canada, Australia, South Africa and the others.
Most Bible commentators and analysts agree with this exposition.
So, we see identified in this prophecy the modern main western nations on the one hand and the nations of Russia, Turkey, and surroundings on the other. Many of these attacking nations are Muslim.
The nations on the left in blue are the defending nations, allied with Israel, and the nations on the right in red are the attacking nations of this prophecy.
World War Three has already started. Well if this is it – it’s not much to worry about is it?
No, we are not yet at the full blown war, but we are seeing the players line up and start the shooting. So far, it’s just Sheba, and Dedan warming up and Persia (Iran) chirping in the background.
Here’s the big takeaway:
This is huge!
If the United States is correctly identified as one of the “young lions” in this prophecy, she will be an ally of Israel at the time this prophecy comes to pass.
This means Obama will fail in throwing Israel under the bus and joining hands with Iran! This means that if this prophecy occurs just before the tribulation starts, which I believe it will for various reasons, the US will be on the WW111 stage attacking the attackers of Israel in red (on the diagram above)and defending Israel with the nations in blue.
A possible outcome of the current war in the region is that Saudi Arabia remains intact and Yemen does not fall to Iran. Both must be allies of Israel when this prophecy comes about.
How about that for a spanner in the works!
Be careful not to write off the US. Be careful proclaiming her total defeat! God may still have a plan of success for the US and the west.
It’s easy to see the nations in red as enemies attacking Israel. It’s easy to see the nations in blue defending Israel except for the two Arab nations of Yemen and Saudi Arabia. The Bible has given us the end picture and the final outcome. Yemen and Saudi Arabia will unite with other western nations when the heat is on.
The obstacle to this prophecy coming to pass is Obama, trying to distance the US from Israel. A possible scenario is that he is removed or changes his tune!
The entrance of Russia as the big bad bear into this war may well be the thing that changes the whole picture and realigns the US with Israel.
What in fact we have now is the stage being set and prepared for WW111. Russia is in the wings. Iran is already on the battleground in a minor way; Israel is waiting.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the Iran-backed Houthi rebels now controlling the capital of Yemen are trying to build ties with Russia and China. They feel threatened by Western support for Saudi Arabia. The Houthis have just sent a delegation to Russia to build this relationship.
Is this an early-entrance of Russia into what looks like it could develop into WW111? Let’s remember that Russia is already at war in Ukraine and is already angering the west as a result.
Let’s also remember that Russia has just announced that she will stand by and help the Palestinians set up their desired state within the borders of Israel.
ISIS is expanding fast in Syria and is now just a short way from Assad’s residence in Damascus. Could this be a precursor of the Isaiah 17 war to come? Not yet, but it’s heading that way fast. The big key in the Isaiah 17 war and the Gog & Magog war is the involvement of Israel, which is not on the go yet.
We are all familiar with the prophecy of Isaiah 17, but here is a parallel prophecy from the pen of Jeremiah:
Jeremiah 49:23-27 “Against Damascus, Hamath and Arpad are shamed, for they have heard bad news, they are fainthearted; there is trouble on the sea - it cannot be quiet. Damascus has grown feeble and turns to flee, and fear has seized her. Anguish and sorrow have her like a woman in labour. Why is the city of praise not deserted, the city of My joy? Therefore her young men shall fall in the streets and all the men of war shall be cut off in that day, says the Lord of hosts. I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus and it shall consume the palaces of Ben-Hadad.’”
Do you see how close we are to all these going bang?
Right now we are seeing Islamic sects fighting each other for dominance and Israel is not involved. The Bible reveals that these prophetic wars involve Israel, so that’s what we must watch for. We can’t jump the gun and say that these are them just yet, but remember that this can all change in a flash.
Latest breaking news:
Yemen has named its former prime minister, Khaled Bahah as the new vice president in a move aimed at bringing a peaceful settlement to the war. He is a popular pro-west leader.
