This website is distinctly Messianic, comprising the Abrahamic expression of faith, which is to the Jew and the Gentile with a Hebraic character. We affirm the fullness of absolute truth contained in the Bible, embracing the cross and identifying with the convocations of the Lord as seen in the Feasts, the Sabbath and Passover. We reject the legalism of many in the Messianic movement. We reject the Babylonian Pagan traditions of the church. We consider all people Jews and Gentiles and those in all churches who are truly born of the Spirit of the living God to be one family. We reject institutional organised denominationalism (division). We foresee a great falling away of much of the church in these days, while at the same time a great restoration of part of the church. We affirm and identify with God's plan and call to the Jewish people in these days and will support and stand with them as future brothers and sisters. We stand happily with pre / mid/ and post tribbers. Our slant is cautiously pre-trib, but hey, post tribber...you're still family! Today much error has been added to Christendom and much truth has been removed. The Prophetic Scroll's aim is to deal with these issues and assist you on your road to glory.
I was saved in 1976 and became extremely interested in Bible prophecy, being an ex war-correspondent and photographer. My calling and aim is to share the dramatic and all-important issues of prophecy relating to our day. This is a calling to unfold and share the wisdom of God as contained in His word. There is also much teaching in these pages for your heart. It’s not all prophecy! Please study these things further yourself and understand that the format is non-exhaustive. Please search the scriptures to “see if these be true.” This is a "watchman" and Bible prophecy teaching website.

●Talk about Irony! Trump meets Abbas, (meaning father) the Palestinian leader in Bethlehem the place of the birth of the Prince of Peace to discuss a new peace effort and deal! But the Prince of Peace is again banished!
●While Trump tries to appease Islam in Saudi Arabia, and the mass media continues to lie to the world that Islam is peace; we see the heart of it being manifest in the savagery of the Manchester bombing. Trump says, “Drive out the terrorists” and they blow up the innocents!
●Iran’s re-elected Rouhani says we will continue with our missile development and tests. He dismissed Trump’s Arab summit and his remarks against militant Iran. So nothing has changed?
●The Trump visit to the Middle East has killed and buried the Obama policies, which all favoured the “other side.”
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.
Edition 267. July 8th 2015
The fall of Obama:
The fall of Obama:
►The verses which I’ve selected for this edition are very powerful, appropriate and relevant. They apply perfectly to this subject, but also in a wider sense to governmental powers in these days.
1 Samuel 15:23 “Rebellion (to God) is as the sin of witchcraft...Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, He also has rejected you from being king.”
The tragedy of the verse above is that it clearly shows God rejecting the rebels and why. That does not mean that the victim is suddenly overthrown, but it does mean that the individual is continuing in his own strength or even in satanic power.
Obama is in full rebellion to the revealed word of God on numerous fronts, he has already fallen, from God’s point of view, and been rejected.
He has on numerous occasions celebrated sin and perversion. In many ways he has led the US from a under God to a nation without God – a pagan nation. As Obama and his administration have gradually put out the light of God, so the darkness has flooded in.
I present this edition to you in humility and fear of my Lord. I have no personal ambition or desire to prove myself right or put anyone down. Tragically, this issue is of great importance now and has enormous prophetic ramifications. I present this simply as a warning to whoever would receive it.
Why is the USA, Obama in particular more important than other countries? After all, the whole world is in a big mess. The reason is simply because of the size of the US and its influence on the world and on Israel.
I do believe that we can separate the people of the US from the leadership to some degree. As I’ve said many times, I love the American people and have a special place for them in my heart. Unfortunately we can’t separate the people from the leadership too much. What the leaders do will affect the people in many ways.
There are so many prophetic things dovetailing together now, this makes the situation much more important than normal.
Establishing Biblical principles of government and political leadership:
Firstly we need to look at what the Bible says about governmental leadership, so we have a solid foundation.
There are dozens of verses about good government in the Bible, but here are just a few key verses.
Psalm 33:12 “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, and the people whom He has chosen as His own inheritance.”
Isaiah 60:12 “For the nation and kingdom which will not serve you shall perish, and those nations shall be utterly ruined.”
Psalm 75:6-7 “Exaltation comes neither from the east nor from the west nor from the south. But God is the judge: He puts one down and exalts another.”
The above verses are so plain and clear they need no explanation.
Accomplishments under the Obama administration:
These failures and disasters are from a Biblical perspective.
●Turning against God’s word on Israel and placating, appeasing and accommodating her enemies.
●Fully approving and supplying government funding (Obamacare) for all forms of abortion (murder).
Let’s break these down:
1) Homosexual marriage:
In a number of recent articles Obama has boasted of his accomplishments in the LGBT arena. He has taken the credit for these new changes.
Since the institution of marriage 6000 years ago, no judge, or political leader has redefined God’s decree of what marriage is.
Psalm 94:20-23 “Shall the throne of iniquity, which devises evil by law, have fellowship with You (God)? They gather together against the life of the righteous and condemn innocent blood. But the Lord has been my defence, and my God the rock of my refuge. He has brought on them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; the Lord our God shall cut them off.”
Galatians 6:7 “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that will he reap.”
2 Chronicles 36:14-16 “All the leaders of the priests and the people transgressed more and more, according to the abominations of the nations, and defiled the house of the Lord, which He has consecrated in Jerusalem. The Lord sent warnings to them by His messengers, rising up early and sending them, because He has compassion on His people and on His dwelling place. But they mocked the messengers of God, despised His words and scoffed at His prophets, until the wrath of the Lord arose against His people, until there was no remedy.”
Isaiah 3:9 “The look on their countenance witnesses against them, and they declare their sin as in Sodom; they do not hide it. Woe to their souls! They have brought evil upon themselves.”
1 Corinthians 10:11 “Now all these things happened (referring back to the sexual immorality of the time of Sodom), to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, on who the ends of the ages have come.”
2 Peter 2:6 “God turned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example (Lit=perpetual example) to those afterward who would live ungodly.”
Note that in the verses above, both God is mocked and His messengers!
One way to identify possible repentance in a homosexual is to simply observe their attitude to God’s judgement on Sodom and Gomorrah for its homosexuality. Do they now agree with God? Homosexuals believe that God needs to apologise to them.
Note that God did not separate homosexual sin from the people involved. The fiery judgment came on the people. So why say that God loves the homosexual but hates the sin? I have never found anyone who can explain that!
Of course God loves sinners, we all know that. But why or how do you separate the sin from the people? If there is someone out there who can explain that – please do. Sin is not a separate entity.
►The LGBT agenda is the legacy of Obama.
2) State funding of abortion:
The day before the Supreme Court ruling on same sex marriage Obamacare was officially instituted under law. Under these laws, state funding (in all states) for abortion is now part of the system.
There is one central issue here: When does life begin?
Luke 1:41“When Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary the babe leapt in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.”
Psalm 139:13 “You have formed my inward parts; You have covered (Lit=woven) me in my mother’s womb.”
The verses above (and there others) speak of life beginning before birth. That makes abortion murder. This means that under Obama, the US government not only sanctions but pays for murder.
3) Israel and the Middle East:
As of the 2nd July Obama’s administration rejected attempts by its Middle East allies to deliver heavy weapons to the Kurds and others fighting ISIS. The UK’s Cameron objected to this as did a host of other nations. A senior Arab leader said that they would now have to find other ways to deal with ISIS.
You can find more on this story HERE.
Israel has been protecting Jordan from Syria and now ISIS. Lebanon is Hezbollah controlled, with Israel on its border. Under Obama these alliances have changed adding pressure to Israel.
Moderate Muslim nations have been able to live with Israel as a neighbour. But Obama has gradually eroded this support in favour of Iran and other Islamic hardliners.
Causing Israel to stumble, fall or come into danger has always been a big issue from God’s point of view. No nation on this earth ever in history has prospered for very long after coming against Israel.
Israel is the cornerstone of stability in the Middle East, and Obama is hammering away at that cornerstone.
We are about to see big dramas in the Middle East. Lebanon, Hezbollah, Gaza, Hamas, The Golan, Syria, The West Bank, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Iran are all about to explode onto the stage and Obama will take the wrong side!
The US is mocking God in a way like never seen before. Playing with fire is a certain way to get burnt.
The big summary:
In spite of Obama’s Muslim connections, and his befriending of Islam, the world of Islam wants nothing but to destroy the US, the “Great Satan”. Obama and his supporters have infuriated the living God, and mocked Him.
Obama’s great fall has already occurred in the spirit realm, it will soon become manifest!
A huge economic collapse is coming soon. It will affect the whole world, but will be centralised in the US. The US economy will be hit the hardest simply because of its size and influence on the world financial stage.
Talk about having the odds stacked against you!!
Note that transgression or sin is not static; it grows on the wings of more and more sin. These modern day abominations of the world have also infiltrated a sleepy church. The word of the Lord is rejected, mocked, despised and scoffed at. It all continues until there is no remedy and the wrath of God falls.
Psalm 14:1“The fool says in his heart there is no God.”
The charge of the occult:
Today the big cry of the homosexual is, “We were born this way”. No they weren’t! At some point in time they gave themselves to perverted lusts, and then invisible demon spirits came in and took possession of them, leading them deeper into a demonically charged world.
At the time of Sodom and Gomorrah, there were giants or demonic aliens of sorts involved in the homosexual activity.
Jude 1:7 “As Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, in a similar manner to these having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”
Most commentators agree that the “strange flesh” in the verse above refers to aliens, or fallen angels or demons manifesting as humans.
There are numerous other verses of scripture also indicating demonic activity in the world of sexual immorality.
Where evil really intensifies, the occult is always present. We will now see a big increase in demonic activity with supernatural beings coming into the picture as well.
2 Timothy 3:13 “Evil men will grow worse and imposters (Lit= enchanters) will grow worse and worse deceiving and being deceived.” We could say it this way: “Evil men and occult enchanters will grow worse and worse.”
Be aware of the extremely powerful type in the story of Lot being removed from Sodom before its destruction. This is obviously one of the great pre-tribulation rapture types. What is happening now in modern Sodom is a tragedy, and a spectacular victory about to occur. It all points to our soon-coming supernatural escape!
Luke 10:18 “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.”
Do you think he fell like lightning and is staying down? Satan is intensifying his efforts now in a major way.
Revelation 12:12 “...For the devil has come down to you having great wrath, because he knows his time is short.”
What you must do: Immediately come out of Sodom, Babylon, and the world! Don’t wait. Don’t look back. Don’t justify the sins of the world. Repent in humility and brokenness before our soon-coming Messiah.
You are in great danger as a believer if you think you can withstand or fight off the onslaught of supernatural beings, devils and demons in your own strength. You need the fullness of the Spirit.
►I will shortly do something on the rising of the occult, UFO’s, aliens and other supernatural events.
I haven’t planned it this way, but for some reason many military men including Generals, Majors and other leaders from a few nations are now regular readers of this publication. They communicate with me regularly.
I have a brief message for you: I respect you especially in these days! You are going to be at war soon. You are greatly privileged to have our Lord and His word in your hearts and minds. In many ways, you are in fact His authority. You are His battle axe.
Be strong and courageous in the times ahead and remember that a time may come where you have to obey God rather than man! But you will know that in your hearts when and if the time arises.
Acts 5:29 “We must obey God rather than men.”
So many people are predicting the soon-coming destruction of the US for multitudes of reasons. But let’s bring in a word of caution. If God destroyed an entire country because of its sin, there would be no nations on this earth.
God destroys or lets a nation be destroyed when the light goes out. It is the churches fault that the light goes out in the nation, because that is one of the primary jobs of the church.
The US has been the world’s greatest missionary nation, distributor of Bibles and its message. No other nation has spent more money and effort on the spread of the gospel. No other nation has been such a large safe-haven for the Jewish people in their diaspora.
God has a whole list of reasons why He has not brought the US under judgement. But how much longer can it continue?
Can one man bring down a whole nation? There are numerous examples throughout history of exactly that! Right now, Obama has been readied by forces he can’t even see for his great fall.
Obama, the personification of evil today, and a sleepy church in the US are a dangerous combination!
I wish it were just the man himself who will fall, but I fear, he will bring down a great part of the country.
There may be little hope left for the US, but there is always personal, individual hope. Every person on this planet is living under coming wrath or grace! There is nothing in between.
My great hope for the US is that the true church of the living God steps up to the plate and delays the coming judgement.
There is hope, but it’s being eroded fast!
The world and its church have bought evil upon themselves:
Keith Green: (From a long ago song) “How can you be so dead when you’ve been so well fed? You are asleep in the Light. Heaven weeps and hell rejoices.”
Proverbs 8:13 “The fear of the Lord is to hate evil; pride and arrogance and the evil way and the perverse mouth I hate.”
The world has bought the lies of their political leaders. They love evil. They hate righteousness. They have succumbed to the influence of some of the most desperately wicked men in the world.
Hosea 4:4-6 “Now let no man contend or reprove another, for your people are like those who contend with the priest (question God) Therefore you shall stumble in the day; the prophet (false) will also stumble with you in the night; and I will destroy your mother (false religion). My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge (of God). Because you have rejected knowledge, I will reject you from being priest for Me. Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.”
The destruction of morality in the world has been a slow steady flow, creeping progressively deeper into the hearts of man. It has been indistinguishable, infinitesimal, inconspicuous. The master of gradualism, Satan has been very effective in his methods. Homosexuality and abortion are an excellent case in point. With the power of media craftily at work in Satan’s hands modern morality has changed completely. What was not okay is now the new normal.
A message from God to Obama:
Amos 2:13-14 “Behold I am weighted down by you, as a cart is weighed down that is full of sheaves . Therefore flight shall perish from the swift, the strong shall not strengthen his power, nor shall the mighty deliver himself.”
Hosea 10:13-14 “You have planted wickedness, you have reaped evil, you have eaten the fruit of deception and lies, because you have trusted in your own way, in the multitude of your mighty men. Therefore tumult shall arise among your people, and your fortresses shall be plundered.”
Deuteronomy 28:49 “The Lord will bring a nation against you from afar, from the ends of the earth, as swift as an eagle flies; a nation whose language you will not understand”
We all know that the homosexual movement is characterised by pride, but so is Obama. His actions and those of his administration can only be called supreme pride.
Proverbs 16:18 “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.”
Job 41:34 “He (Satan) is king over all the children of pride.”
Beware certain ministries:
Beware of any minister, church, or so called watchman who have nothing to say publically about these big issues of the day. Redefining marriage, murder of the unborn and endangering Israel are big important issues from God’s point of view now.
►Beware the ones with no interest in end-times! They will have an abundance of interest in the now-times, led by me now. End-times are all about our Lord, Now-times are all about me, myself I.
The end-time pressures are going to grow so strong that the unprepared will not be able to escape their grip.
Is there an answer?
Seventeen is number symbolising “overcoming the enemy” or “complete victory.” The Ark came to rest on Mt Ararat on the 17th of the seventh month on a Feast of Tabernacles. (Genesis 8:4). The name ‘Ararat’ means, “The curse reversed”.
The meaning of word ‘Noah’ means, “Rest, peace, comforter”.
The resurrection of our Lord occurred on the 17th Nissan.
Daniel’s 7 beasts have seven heads and ten horns, for a total of 17. This represents the world’s power and rule from of Daniel to the Second Coming.
The Day of Atonement occurs on the seventh Hebrew month on the 10th day. This equals 17.
17 represent God’s ultimate victory over the devil.
There is much more to this, which I’ll share sometime soon. The good news is that we win! The great news is that our victory is eternal and it’s all coming soon!
Are you moving forward? Are you on the road from Egypt (a type of the world) to the Promised Land or from the Promised Land to Babylon (captivity)?
Psalm 1:1”Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law of the Lord.”
It’s only as we obey God’s word that it really comes to life. But believing is not good enough!
James 2:19 “You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe and tremble.”
Truth must be applied, only then it works wonderfully.
I took this picture hanging out of a chopper high above the Cathedral Peak in the Drakensberg Mountains. (You can see one of our helicopters on the mountain at right.)
Shalom and grow in grace!
