- Iraq (the home of Babylon) is reported to be lining up to make peace with Israel.
- There will be no talk of, or deal relating to the Temple Mount at this signing.
- Iran and friends threaten missile attack on Israel and the UAE because of their new friendship.

Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose of this report is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah.
18th September 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Watch the watchmen:
But first: Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s prayer meeting, “The Return” will be held on the Washington Mall, Washington DC, on the 26th September. This day is known as Shabbat Shuvah. Interestingly the Bible reading for the day is, “Return O Israel, to the Lord your God.”(Hosea 14:2-10 Micah 7: 18-20 Joel 2:15-27) It’s all centred on a global call for the church to return to the ways of God, and for Israel’s return to Messiah.
Today is the beginning of Rosh Hashanah / Feast of Trumpets, depending on the sighting of the new moon. ●This is NOT the rapture time and start of the tribulation.
The current peace efforts between Israel and some Arab nations is NOT the final antichrist peace deal - not by any means. What they are is incremental peace efforts.
This is NOT the “peace and safety, then sudden destruction” verse coming about. That verse relates to the Daniel 9:27 peace deal and the tribulation.
But these things collectively are important in that they present a new dawn for the Middle East. The knock-on effects and influence of these peace efforts are causing others to want to jump on the band wagon too.
Because these are such critical and dangerous times, this is a more important time than ever to be led correctly by men of God who are led by the Spirit and have a history of accuracy and stability. There are many amongst the riff raff.
So many wannabe watchmen and teachers are leading people astray with inaccurate, wrong pronouncements. Some are so outrageous! A watchman of the Lord is not one who watches for possibilities. He knows where to look and what to watch for and is led by the Spirit of God, therefore he is right.
I was given some “100% for sure” information in charts and numbers and various things as to why this would be the rapture time – for sure 100%! It didn’t sit right. When checking it out myself nothing added up!
Because a blind, always-wrong watchman says something is a sign; that does not make it so, by any means.
Being wrong destroys your authority and credibility, and damages the prophetic word and the faith of others, especially new believers.
Being wrong on major biblical things means one thing for sure – absolutely: You have not heard from God and you speak your own opinions.
The Spirit led teacher / watchman will have a history of godly stability and is therefore trustworthy.
Discernment is more critical than ever in the face of fast growing deception.
Ezra 3:13 (Temple rebuilt) “The people could not discern the noise of the shout of joy from the noise of the weeping of the people...”
Error becomes an immovable mountain if not dealt with, because it is formed and secured on the pillar of pride.
Spirit led, and inspired knowledge, understanding and wisdom endures and produces godly fruit.
One way to know a false teacher: When brought to correction, they will turn on you because you won’t join them in propping up their pride!
The Spirit of God in your heart is the umpire. He brings peace when you are on the right track. But you need the baptism of the Spirit. If not your umpire is you, yourself.
The condition of the end-time church:
There is a powerful prophetic message for the end-time church hidden in the messages to the seven churches in Revelation 2 & 3. They were seven historic churches. All seven contain truth for us, but prophetically, they also plot the course of church history.
The first three churches, Ephesus, Smyrna and Pergamos speak of the times gone by. The last four plot the course of the end time church and run concurrently. They are Thyatira, representing the Catholic and other orthodox churches. (They are cast into the tribulation) Sardis is the church that has a “name to live but is dead”. They are told that Lord will come upon them as a thief and they won’t know when! This represents the denominational Spirit-less churches. (With a few exceptions) Then comes the glorious church – the church of Philadelphia. They have the key of David, opening the doors to the Jews. (Isaiah 22:22) This church keeps the word and is promised to be kept out of the tribulation. Finally we have the lukewarm church of Laodicea, which is spiritually blind. God “vomits them out of His mouth.” “Laodicea”: Strong’s G2993, “Laodikeia” From two root words: ‘Laos’ = people and ‘Dike’ =Ruling. This is the people ruled” or “people/self opinionated church.
The pictures below show all that remains of Laodicea today. The Spirit of God flew away from this church and God spat them out of His mouth. (Revelation 3:16) The pillars still standing represent truth, but all else is gone.
1 Timothy 3:15 (Amp) “You know how people must conduct themselves in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and stay – the prop and support of the truth.”
So, what we see here is a very powerful and accurate picture of the end-time church. Some of it is the walking dead. Some are a horror of evil. Some are cast into the tribulation, spat out and condemned. And right in the midst is the church who keeps and loves the word and is pro-Israel.
Bear in mind that there is a terrible, tragic church and a glorious, growing powerful church side by side in these days. Don’t get tunnel vision for just one side of the coin.
The Bible speaks of a great end-time revival (the latter rain) in the last days. (Joel 2:23, Hosea 6:3) and in many other verses.
A major prophetic mark of the times is increasing deception in the church. You can’t have increasing deception without increasing deceivers and that’s where the problem lies.
Satan used deception to try to stamp out the early church because he knew it would wreck his kingdom. Now we have the same scenario again. Sometimes you have to be severe in your dealings.
Acts 13:9-11 “Then Saul, also called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit looked intently at him and said, ‘O full of all deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all unrighteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord? And now indeed the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you shall be blind, not seeing the sun for a time, and immediately a dark mist fell upon him...”
It is most important to know prophetic things to come, but also the timing of those things, to avoid deception. You must see with spiritual eyes today.
A Spirit-led and inspired watchman / teacher is always restrained in what he sees and says. He is led by the restrainer.
We are now at the start of the new Hebrew year 5781. It will end and change to 5782 on Rosh Hashanah 2021. That is September 7th - 8th 2021. That’s a very important date!!
This year, 5781 is going to be year like no other. It’s going to be a wild time of stress, strain and pressure. But in the midst there will be islands of peace amongst the pillars of truth.
The good news is that we are on the verge of great revival. We are seeing it in many nations of the east. Of course there will always be churches deteriorating and dying.
Many of those who have gone off into a ditch will repent and return. Many will continue to slip and slide further away.
As we enter the beginning of these wild times, I want to assure you that The Prophetic Scroll will be your place of spiritual stability and rest.
Edition 286: November 18th 2015
The spirit world:
The spirit world:
In this edition I want to deal with an important issue. Most people don’t think so because they can’t see the world of demons, angels, the Spirit of God and Satan.
In fact the spirit world is very real indeed and although we can’t see them with our eyes, we most certainly do see the results of their works. The spirit world is going to become a lot more important as we head for major prophetic times.
In fact you are wall to wall spirit. If you were to step out of your body now, a spirit would be standing right there.
After resurrection you will live forever in a new body made up of spirit. It will be pure and holy, with all the impurities and faults removed. It will be a body that can manifest physically and then de-materialise at will. It will be a body with full, complete knowledge. You will know everything.
You will be a true time traveller and be able to travel at the speed of thought. You will not be bound to any of the laws of physics although you will be able to transcend both the physical and spiritual. You will be eternally young and totally healthy in every way possible.
You will be given authority over various situations or tasks or even other worlds.
Talk about putting science fiction to shame! My friends this is what is coming.
(Please see edition 197 HERE for more)
Spirits of truth and error:
God is a Spirit, Satan is a spirit and you are a spirit. All will live forever. All have doctrines and belief systems associated.
1 John 4:6 “We are of God. He who knows God hears us, he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.”
Note in the verse above that both truth and error are spirits! They manifest in the natural and physical realms, but they are essentially spirits. This means that they are alive! Obviously this also means that one is of the living God and the other of the devil.
The spiritual forces of truth and error have enormous power of persuasion, because they have real spirit beings behind them. This is why the unsaved and the unequipped Christian are sitting ducks for the devil.
You may know the following verse well, but please read it again and take note of the implications:
Ephesians 6:10-17 “Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armour of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood , but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age and against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places...take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God...”
The verse goes on to describe the main pieces of spiritual armour which the believer, especially in these end days of intensifying spiritual conflict, must wear. Three of these items are defensive and one, the sword, is offensive. But note what the sword actually is - it is the “word of God.”
So we are to go on the attack, using the word of God and not our own ideas or those of the mass- media and the world. Yes we do all in love, but sometimes that love must have a severe dimension to it. Cutting out cancer is painful, but is actually love in action.
The Bible commands us to “consider the goodness and severity of God” (Romans 11:22)
Today a huge number of churches are big trouble. They have capitulated to the god of this world. So many of them have rejected the fullness of the baptism of the Spirit, which includes the gifts the armour and the spiritual weapons needed to stand against the devil.
Their congregations are getting smaller as people fall away, while other spirit-filled churches are growing fast.
Have you ever noticed that those who come against the baptism in the Spirit never talk of or teach on spiritual warfare and the use of spiritual weapons?
Those who come against or are neutral to the baptism in the Spirit are always silent on casting out demons. You will rarely hear them address anything to do with spiritual warfare simply because they are blind to it all and ill-equipped to deal with it.
Mark 16:17 “These signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues.”
The teaching of these spirit-less Christians is always dead. There is no spark, no real life, its dead letter and it’s boring. Their teaching is never really pre-emptive or prophetic but in most cases backward looking. It’s always analysis after the fact.
The shocking thing revealed in the word of God about the church is that only a small part of it is doing just fine. The rest of the church is in great trouble as revealed in our Lord’s messages to the seven churches in the opening chapters of the Revelation.
Here are two verses that are a bit of a shock!
Revelation 2:13 “I know your works and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is...”
Revelation 2:24 “To you I say and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as who do not have this doctrine, and who have not known the depths of Satan...”
Do you see that these churches actually have a close identity with Satan himself! Of course they can’t see that, but God can!
Please don’t go chasing after angels, demons or any spirits all over the place. Don’t go looking for spirits behind every item of furniture. Just be aware of them. Let God show you what is needed.
Do not receive everything that comes dressed up in religiosity! Beware of many (not all) of the Youtube ministries. Some of them are deadly. Some appear to be so good but there are always tell-tale signs of false spirits at work.
These are normally seen in people who use manipulation to gain a following.
1 John 4:1 “Do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”
2 Corinthians 11:14 “Satan himself transforms himself into and angel of light.” (Context is ministers.)
The Spirit of truth:
The Spirit of truth will always manifest in you in pure holiness. He is a Holy Spirit. He will always have the characteristics revealed in the Bible. He will always be full of good fruit.
When He the Spirit of truth is at work there will liberty, freedom and peace. When the spirit of error is at work there will be bondage, evil, sin. James 3:15 “This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic.
If the Spirit of truth is in you, active and alive, you will always have a forward-looking orientation. You will always have an exciting dimension to your life, because our Lord will be showing you things to come! You will always be anchored and balanced in the truth.
John 16:13 “When He the Spirit of truth has come, He will guide you into all truth...and He will tell you things to come.”
My friends, the Spirit of truth is selective. He won’t share His truth with the devil. He won’t share or reveal to you His truth if He knows you won’t use and apply it.
Beware the spirit of Obama:
I’ve just noticed a subtle, but excellent example of what this edition is about, in US President Obama. He speaks with a forked tongue! He speaks pure rubbish, designed to appease the gods he serves and he most probably isn’t even aware of it.
Obama condemned the Paris terror attacks calling the perpetrators “terrorists”. Sounds good hey? But he said nothing of Islam or Muslims.
Yes they are terrorists, but that word is so nebulous and can refer to such a wide range of issues. You see, these were not just terrorists. They are people who love the jihad of the Quran!
Obama and his puppet, UK’s Cameron, speak the same ill-informed error coming right from the god of error. They repeatedly call Islam a religion of peace. If they took the trouble to look up what the Quran says in numerous places about killing the infidel, including beheadings and other such things, they would have a real tough time explaining it. So they lie!
They speak the words of the father of lies. They create an incorrect picture and understanding. They appease the very source of the trouble.
Please always remember that what Islam means by peace is the ultimate eradication of resistance!
What’s life all about?
Too many people look at their circumstances and say to themselves, “What’s life all about”? Life is making money buying some happiness for a while until it runs out and then doing it all again! People wonder why buying happiness never produces deep fulfilment.
It’s because whatever you can buy is essentially dead (unless you’ve just bought a puppy). All goods, even a red Ferrari is dead and empty. Your Ferrari can’t give you true deep love and comfort. It can only give five minutes of empty, shallow happiness. Even the Ferrari has no spirit – it’s dead.
How come very few very wealthy people have internal joy? Most people struggle to be happy and then they die. They say, “Surely there has to be more to life than this rat race to keep up with the rats next door – the Joneses.” The reason they will never find true deep joy is because they’re living for self and deep within the bowels of self is Satan! You can never satisfy Satan!
You see, Satan’s evil grows. It’s always hungry. It advances and it feeds on you and then advances some more. It eats into your very purpose for being. So like cancer, if you don’t remove it will kill you.
By the way, if anyone wants to buy me a red Ferrari (or any colour), I’ll say, thank you very much.
You were known before the foundations of this earth, says the Bible. What sort of madness is that? God knew you way back in the eternal past before you even thought of. Okay we can only superficially understand that, but stop and think about it for a moment.
If God knew you way back then, has He forgotten you now? Of course not! What this means is that God created you with a plan and purpose wrapped up in His will and plans. You are not some afterthought, you are not some afterbirth. You are not some random creation with no more meaning than a Walt Disney drawing.
If God knew you millions, billions trillions and quadrillions of years ago and here you are now walking around on this earth, that means you have incredible purpose to your life. You are much more than valuable and precious! You are part of an eternal plan that is just beginning.
So many people can’t see these things because they can only see the material, physical realm. They can only see the here and the now. They can’t see the reality of eternal spiritual life. They can’t see and don’t even believe that they are an eternal spirit!
1 Corinthians 6:19 “Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own.”
Next time you look in a mirror say hullo to the real you! Not that person looking back at you, the one you can’t see the real one who will live forever.
Next time you’re having a bad day, think about these things. Cast your thoughts way out into eternity. Cast your thoughts towards a future so majestic, spectacular, wonderful and eternal. Cast your thoughts way back to long before you were invented by God and remember that He knew you, was thinking about you; looking forward to meeting with you and coming to visit you in the most incredible home in the universe that He has made for you anyway.
All these things are coming.
If you don’t have eyes for the things of the Spirit, you are vulnerable and will lack endurance and stability.
Many people are and will continue to fall away from the truth in these days. They are being led by spirits they can’t see and can’t deal with because their stupid minister wearing a frock hasn’t taught them or prepared them.
1 Timothy 4:1 “The spirit expressly says that in the latter times, some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons.”
There’s a stirring in the air!
Right now spirits are becoming restless. They’re stirring and arising for battle. There is war in the heavenly realm. It’s beginning to intensify. The terror attacks of recent days are just the beginning. We are now going to see many of these things go into high gear.
Europe and the US are the main targets. It is all Satan’s work.
Because of the very limited time that is left before the coming of the Lord, these things have to intensify now. The world is about to be rocked by unseen spirits, devils, demons and their servants.
It’s time for true believers to examine themselves, to check their faith-status, to get their lives right.
It is time to cast off the sins that beset and to walk in holiness. It is time to surrender every area of your heart to the Lord. Open every door of your heart and clean out the garbage and let the Holy Spirit flood in.
It is time to know who you really are. It is time to realise that you have an eternal plan, destiny and reason for being here now. The least you can do is repent for all known sin and freshly dedicate your life to our King of kings and Lord of lords.
It is time to humble yourself before the mighty God, fall on your face in surrender to Him. It is time to harden your hearts to all the schemes of the devil.
Do not fall asleep in the light (That was the title of a Keith Green song.) The light will not be here or not be clearly visible for much longer.
At this time, I give you warning. The spirits of evil and deception are going to begin major deceptive works.
The works of deception will be powerful, strong and completely convincing. There will be people arising within the church claiming to be the two witnesses. They will be supernaturally empowered by spirits of pride and evil.
There will be major deceptions of sight and sound and signs in the sky.
If you have been involved in the occult, you need to seek complete and full deliverance, because you will have doors open! If you know beyond any doubt that you are clean and free – well and good, but know that you will targeted again much more powerfully.
Jihad, terror, and even WW111 are before us, can you see it stirring?
Finally the big prize of the devil is Israel. We are on the cusp of huge dramas with Israel. The Spirit of God is about to bring them to punishment for all their rebellion, even the great sins of Israel’s capital of homosexuality – Tel Aviv, will be brought down.
Satan will use the Arab nations, Europe, the UN and the US to cause much harm to Israel, as prophesied in numerous verses. Also as prophesied, these nations will in the process, bring wrath upon themselves.
In the midst of all of this God will lift the veil from the Jewish remnant bringing them to salvation.
What incredible drama this all is!
The voice of the devil:
Beware the mass media! They are inspired, orchestrated and led by Satan himself. They don’t even know that, but it is true. They are about to fulfil their tragic, deadly roles for which they were created. The mass media will be directly responsible for the biggest miss-information program, and all out lies the world has ever seen.
The mass media will contradict God again and again, making a mockery of His word. All the big-ticket items of God’s word they will come against. These are things needed for a strong nation under God. The attacks will be against God’s word on abortion, capital punishment, homosexuality and LGBT, discipline of children, the call of the Jews to salvation, their return to and ownership of all of the land of Israel, the dividing of land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem and much more.
Here’s a simple example of how the voice of the devil has infiltrated modern thinking: Today, the media says that homosexuals were born that way. No they weren’t! At some point they opened some doors to the devil in which there was vulnerability, then Satan and demon forces came in and took possession.
That’s how it works. That’s why these people can’t get free. There are a million hallmarks and characteristics of demon possession and activity in homosexuals. They need deliverance to be free.
The media will spear-head all of Satan’s plans.
Here is verse that will include the media. They will show and tell of these things. They will be involved in spreading the great deceptions of the end-times.
Revelation 13:13-14 “He (antichrist) performs great signs, so that he makes fire come down from heaven upon the earth in the sight of men, and he deceives those who dwell on the earth by these signs, which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast...”
Made by Israel, Made by Islam:
I saw a cartoon the other day with the above title. It got me to thinking. How come Israel has invented, constructed, made, manufactured, grown and produced more good stuff for the good of the whole world than any other nation on earth?
How come Islam has done nothing for the good of the world at all ever? If you can think of one thing, please let me know! Of course Islam has murdered as many as the Catholic church. Islam has created and manufactured great numbers of suicide vests, terror weapons, misery, domination and control of people’s minds and actions.
Bless Israel, you’ll be blessed. Curse Israel and you’ll be cursed, says the Bible. This verse and other like it show and demonstrate that God has His favour on what is of Him in the first place. That which comes from the Spirit of God has success and abundance attached to it.
1 John 3:2-3 “...We know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.”
There is such great glory coming to those who endure to the end. There are so many who will fall away who need not. They will be full of eternal regret.
I think the following few verses are amongst the greatest in the Bible. How amazing is this, and its all true!
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 "We do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction is but for a moment and is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things are seen, but at the things which are not seen, for the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal."
I took this picture with my Hasselblad remote controlled on the nest of a Black Eagle.
Shalom and grow in grace!
