- 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.
- Trump warns Iran of “1000-times harsher response” if Iran attacks US Ambassador to South Africa.
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 287: November 24th 2015
Israel, the drama to end all dramas:
►Notice: Next week’s edition will include a major prophetic announcement.
Israel, the drama to end all dramas:
As the scroll of Holy Scripture opens up, it unveils the greatest drama of all time. From beginning to end there is nothing but monumental drama, all with a majestic consistent theme throughout.
You will only get glimpses of this glory if you cherry-pick Bible verses. When you see it all, as a completed picture – it can do nothing but leave you shattered and transformed! Of course, the only way you can do that is the old-fashioned way, reading the Bible from cover to cover and studying it under the auspices of the Holy Spirit.
It is extremely helpful to read the read the prophets and minor prophets.
Unfortunately, for most, it’s all still a rolled-up scroll, leaving them at the mercies of their own multitudes of opinions!
In numerous verses the Bible describes and plots these great end-time dramas. Most of these events occur in the seven-year tribulation period, but there are also many forerunners.
●It compares and rivals the second Exodus to the first. (Jeremiah 23:7-8).
●It says that this will be a time the prophets of old looked forward to. (Acts 3:24.)
●It describes the return of the Jews as a time of riches for the world, (Romans 11:12) and a time of “life from the dead”. (Romans11:15.)
●It will be a time when a valley of dry bones comes to life, which are the Jews coming to salvation. (Ezekiel 37:13-14, (Jeremiah 31:31).
●The Bible describes this as a time of unprecedented war and conflict like never before. It will be a time of spiritual war in the heavenly realms. It will be a time when hell opens her arms to receive untold billions. (Isaiah 14:9), (Daniel 12:1).
●It will be a time in which one third of the people in Israel will be killed. (Zechariah 13:8) It will be a time of war for Israel, Jerusalem and the Temple Mount.
●It will be a time when false prophets will construct massive evil doctrines to oppose Israel and the coming mass salvation of the Jews. Replacement theology will arise with supernatural power – the power of the devil and will be utilised by much of the church. (Romans 9 & 11).
●Many churches with evil doctrines under their belts will become sceptics, scoffers and mockers of God’s plans for Israel in these days. (2 Peter 3:4-6), (Jude1:18).They will “cast down the truth in the street” (Isaiah 59:14). God will cut them (wild olive branches) off as He did to the true olive branches. (Romans 11:22).
●It will be a time when God kills off some of the church with death. (Revelation 2:23) These will be churches that have come against God’s plans for Israel, mostly orthodox churches like the Catholics and Anglicans.
●It will be a time when nations stumble over Jerusalem, trying to divide it, and all being crushed in the process. (Zechariah 12:2-3)
●It will be a time when nations try to divide the land of Israel, which will bring war and not peace (Joel 3:2).
●It will be a time when the nations of the world will rally behind the Palestinians and their attempted theft of what God has given to the Jews. (Zephaniah 2:8-10).
●It will be a time when Israel will finally defeat and bring an end to the Palestinians. (Obadiah).
●It will be a time when many will mysteriously disappear in the rapture opening the doors for the tribulation period to begin.
Each one of these points above is a great drama on its own. We are now in the privileged position to be on the brink of it all coming to pass.
There is such drama from the garden to the fall, to father Abraham and his offspring the Jews the Arabs the church the synagogue the mosque. From the Exodus to the wilderness to the Promised Land there is nothing but drama! From Israel’s rebellions, captivities to her victories and from wars and mass persecutions to her dramatic second Exodus back to the land – pure drama! From Israel’s coming punishment and then God’s plan to bless and bring salvation to the world, through them, there is nothing but drama. The giant rift between the church and Israel, the reconciliation, the fulfilled purpose, - drama of dramas!
Most amazingly, God has laid out His entire plan for all to see. See it; believe it or not, it’s all coming to pass anyway, just as He said. You know the story; if all else fails – read the instructions! But the world buries its head in the sand!
Who’s the fool?
Image if you had a friend who has never lied ever about anything and who can see into the future. He told you that a particular thing will happen, and the whole world comes against this and criticises it. Then these things come to pass exactly as your friend said. Now, you tell me - who’s the fool?
Did you know God is in the blinding business? He blinds those that come along in all their pride with all their own great ideas.
Jeremiah 13:15-16 “Hear and give ear; do not be proud, for the Lord has spoken. Give glory to the Lord your God, before He causes darkness, and before your feet stumble on the dark mountains, and while you are looking for the light, He turns it into the shadow of death and makes it dense darkness.”
Did you know God is also the building business? But when He builds He destroys too!
Jeremiah 1:10 “I have put my words in your mouth, see I have set you (Jeremiah) over the nations and the kingdoms, to root out and pull down, to destroy and throw down, to build and to plant.”
The same verse appears later on in Jeremiah 31:28, but here it is Israel, as God’s servant who does the destroying and building up.
If you try to make God fit into your ideas and obey you, especially in these big things which He has clearly spelt out, you are in trouble!
Proverbs 28:4 “If you forsake the law (word) of God, you will praise the wicked.”
How the West was won and lost:
The West, my friends was won by the people recognising, believing and accepting the word of the living God. The West is in the process of being lost for the exact opposite reason.
Islam is dark. True Christianity is light. Dark can’t overtake light. But if the light goes dim, the dark comes in automatically. In fact it has a God-given licence to do just that!
The West is being lost by stupid people who voted for their own destruction! If you remove the Bible and biblical principles from your world and then vote, you get the devil. You thought, trusted and believed in the goodness of man, and that he would ultimately make the right choice, even without God in the land and its institutions.
You kicked God out of your constitution and all your institutions. You trusted in the evil hearts of man (Jeremiah 17:9.) Because you were then blinded by God, you voted for a man who turned into a devil!
In deep dark spiritual blindness, all the nations of the world will again kick God’s word out. This time, rejecting His word on Israel! Again, the world will pay the price.
The price is Muslim terror.
National repentance will stop the emerging tragedy. But it’s been left very late and all signs are that it’s too late!
As pressure grows on Israel, God stirs and growls. But beware, O stupid nations, the growl is about to turn to thunder. From then on you want to run, but you can’t hide! Get your affairs in order; buy your little plot in the graveyard down the road.
The Muslim ideology of destroying the Jew and Christian, dominating and controlling the world has spread worldwide. It’s not just ISIS in Syria; it’s the ideology which is everywhere.
The world’s mass media has served Islam excellently by proclaiming and spreading the giant lie that Islam is peaceful and peace-loving. The media may condemn terrorism out of one side of their anatomy, but out of the other they blind the world to the truth.
The world’s mass media can’t see that Islam is inextricably linked to and part of the Quran. The world’s mass media can’t see that this is where the problem lies.
The world’s mass media is silent on the Quran’s hatred for Jews and Christians.
Why is the mass media silent on the 109 verses in the Quran calling Muslims to violence and war with “unbelievers?”
By the way, verses in the Bible commanding killing, never included any form of torture and were all part of a now closed dispensation. The Quran is open ended on all these torture and killing verses.
The Quran needs no radicalisation at all – it’s all there in plain sight, as any and all serious Muslims know. The big disconnect is between those who claim to be moderate Muslims and the Quran.
There’s a new version of the Quran out called “The study Quran” in which they try to explain away the verses commanding beheadings etc. They do a terrible job trying to justify it. They say that these verses are only relevant in a time of war. Beheadings, crucifixions amputations would be war crimes! Besides the Quran claims to be at war with “infidels” all the time!!
Here are a few verses from the Quran which you won’t see the mass media referring to:
2:191-193 “Fight and kill unbelievers until religion is Allah’s”
8:39 “Fight unbelievers until Islam reigns supreme.”
5:33 “Crucify or amputate the hands and feet of those make war against Allah and Muhammad.”
47:4 “Behead and slaughter the unbelievers; take others captive.” “Smite the infidel at the neck.”
In various other verses Jews and Christians are described as “apes, unbelievers, unclean idolaters, enemies of Allah, accursed, and much more.
Make no mistake, Islam is a worldwide ideology and agenda trying and succeeding to build Islamic states and to bring in Sharia domination and control by fear and force.
I don’t want to spend any more time on this vile subject, so just to say, this is the root of the real problem and the cause of Islamic terror worldwide.
Europe is already bowing to Islam in many respects and giving privilege to Muslims. The US will soon have to modify its liberty, behaviour and tolerance to placate the hatred of Islam.

Obama and his side-kicks, the mass media have misdirected you! They have pointed you away from the real problem.
The soon-coming glory of Israel:
In spite of Obama’s new antagonism to Israel, she has a spectacular, dramatic future. If you know what Bible prophecy predicts on an issue like this, should it make any difference to you? You see, it’s all coming about anyway! How much better to know what’s coming and adjust oneself accordingly.
You, my friends have the great privilege of knowing beforehand how it will all play out. You have the great privilege of adjusting and lining up your beliefs and actions with the word of the living God.
We all know that because of Israel’s rejection of her Messiah, God blinded her, leaving her in darkness, with a veil over her understanding. Have a look at these three incredible, amazing verses below:
Isaiah 29:18 “In that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of the obscurity of darkness.” Verse24 “These (Israel) who erred in spirit will come to understanding and those who murmured will learn (true) doctrine.”
Isaiah 9:2 “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, upon them, a light has shined.”
Isaiah 60:2-3 “Behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, (Israel) and His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.”
These verses speak of wonderful things, don’t they? Can you see the light? I can already see the light shining into the hearts of the Jewish people. Okay, there’s a long way to go, but here comes the light!
How can you participate in coming against Israel in any way, knowing how it is all going to play out? You can of course, if you are a Christian friend of the devil himself!
Obadiah 1:10 “For violence (Lit-Chamac, Hamas in English) against your brother Jacob (Israel) shame shall cover you and you shall be cut off forever.”
Keywords for you, Israel
The following paragraph is simply sections of verses relating to Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews, strung together:
You are to be a holy people. Open your hearts to your Jewish Messiah. The Lord has chosen you. You are a special treasure. You will be a light of salvation to the Gentiles. You are to shine and to roar; this is your time. You will arise from the valley of dry bones to the valley of decision for your Messiah. He has glorified you. (Isaiah 55:5, Acts 13:47 Deuteronomy 14:2). God has given you the land and the city for all time. Do not divide either of them.
A message to the Israeli Defence Force:
Deuteronomy 23:9 “When the army goes out against your enemies, then keep yourself from every wicked thing.”
Deuteronomy 23:14 “The Lord your God walks in the midst of your camp to deliver you and give your enemies over to you; therefore your camp shall be holy, that He may see no unclean thing among you, and turn away from you.”
Jeremiah 51:11 “Make the arrows bright! Gather the shields! The Lord has raised up the spirits of the Medes (Iran.)For His plan is against Babylon to destroy it...”
Israeli Defence Force (IDF) please take note of the verses above! You are now entering a new phase in your existence and survival. We know that God’s word reveals His favour upon you, but it’s not automatic. You must prepare yourselves now. Your military training and ability is excellent, but what about your hearts and souls?
Take note of the terrible verse below IDF! Do you want to be in the situation of this verse? I’m sure you don’t.
Judges 10:13-14 “You (Jews) have forsaken Me and served other gods, Therefore I will deliver you no more. Go and cry out to the gods which you have chosen; let them deliver you in your time of distress.”
Take note that the verse applies to a particular point in time. It is when “you are in your distress”. This time period is coming now.
IDF, you know as I do that many of you and your people at large are full of the worship of illegitimate gods. You must repent now! The favour of God will be upon you in your repentance. Yes you will make the right decisions, but make them fast and make them thoroughly and deeply!
Be strong and courageous IDF!
Deuteronomy 4:30-31 “When you are in distress and all these things come upon you in the latter days, when you turn to the Lord your God and obey His voice, He will not forsake you nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them.”
A banner for the nations::
Isaiah 11:11-12 “It shall come to pass in that day that the Lord shall set His hand a second time to recover the remnant of His people who are left...He will set up a banner for the nations, and will assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.” Verse 13: “The adversaries of Judah shall be cut off!”
A banner is big flappy thing in your face with a message written on it! In the verse above we see that our Lord is raising a banner for the nations of the world. What is written on it? Can you see the message?
The message is simple and plain. God will create a second Exodus bringing His Jewish people back to their land from the nations of the world.
But God is not doing this for fun. He is doing it for His great ultimate purpose of bringing the remnant of the Jews to salvation and gathering all the nations against her in one place for the great final destruction of all evil, sin and unrighteousness.
Zechariah 2:4-5 “Run speak to this young man, saying: ‘Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls because of the multitude of men and livestock in it. ‘For I’, says the Lord ‘will be a wall of fire around her, and I will be the glory in her midst.’”
Jerusalem’s amazing future is outlined in this verse above. Do you see that, Palestinians? Do you see that, world? Do you see what I see? – I see a wall of the Lord’s fire already burning around the walls of Jerusalem!
This edition is entitled, “Israel, the drama to end all dramas”. That, my friends is exactly what it will be. That’s exactly what is playing out right now. Bible prophecy has spelt it out and it’s happening just as proclaimed.
Let me give you the good news or the bad news! You do fit into the picture. You are one of the pieces of the giant jigsaw puzzle. Your choices will reveal exactly where you fit in, like it or not! Do you know that our Lord may be preparing rewards and a glorious eternal residence in everlasting peace with Him and the family of God for you right now?
Hebrews 12:1 “Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and run with endurance the race that is set us before us.”
2 Peter 1:11 “An abundant entrance will be supplied to you into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.”
Do you know that Satan may be preparing an abundant “cloud of witnesses” to welcome you? Isaiah 14:9 “Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming.”
You have before you great opportunities my friends, don’t squander them!
I took this picture with my Hasselblad fitted with an ultra-wide lens mounted on a tripod and the shutter controlled with a remote. This is a martial eagle.
Shalom and grow in grace!
