|This ministry has a distinct kingdom vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for Israel and the church. My position is pre-trib! I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share with you the great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God.|

The spread-rate of the coronavirus is starting to turn down as can be seen in this graph for the US. What adds more weight to it is the fact that this is a repeating pattern in many other places. Its early days, and it is still spreading, but it seems to have peaked.
- Some tribulation verses imply that people will carry on as normal with marrying, commerce and industry and the like. This is not a picture of lockdown!
- Gordon Brown calls on world leaders to form a “temporary” world government to resolve the medical and economic crisis.
- Now that Netanyahu is finally confirmed as the President of Israel for the next 18 months, expect some action against Palestinian aggression.
- Jews and Bible believing (evangelical) Christians are being blamed for Covid 19 by an article in The New York Times albeit indirectly.
- Two nights ago I was awakened suddenly at 2.30am by a loud sharp alarm bell of sorts going off. It was nothing I had heard before, or was from the area. It was so loud and vivid it shook me. I have had a similar experience before with a trumpet blast. I’m no dramatist with things like this. The sense I got in my spirit was one of urgency!

Shabbat Shalom to all!
When the pressure is on:
What do you really do in thought and action when the pressure is really on and all things begin to shake?
It’s like the good -old toothpaste tube law: When you squeeze it, what’s inside comes out. This is when you see what’s really in your heart! “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” (Matthew 12:34)
Out of the heart under strain do you hear the mouth speak, shout, screech, swear, stress out, or be silent? Is your thinking stained, strained and stretched by stress?
Pressure sharpens your focus! It can cause you to curse or cause incredible blessing, if you change your focus to the things of God. Yes, a virus can change your focus to victory.
Tests create endurance, or in some cases cause people to give up.
Today we have a multitude of spiritually superficial, shallow shepherds, blind as a bat and deaf as a doornail to the voice of God, and with the mouth of many parrots leading their blind flock.
A lot of what you believe is related to the spiritual input from your spiritual fathers are and who you hang around with and identify with. In this day, you need to make sure who your spiritual friends are! You need to forsake many, and gather new ones.
I would feel a lot safer learning from a hell-fire and brimstone preacher of the cross than the modern, be blessed, be prosperous, be happy, positive-only preachers.
To construct this modern positive-only gospel, you have to remove all the “hard sayings and severity of the gospel. Their gospel becomes a half-baked ear-tickling tickle.
Endurance produces character. This is why a lot of the modern church is so spineless.
Some churches, you dare not walk into. They need a big sign outside saying “Enter at your own risk” or better still, “Danger, do not enter”
James 1:3 “Know that the testing of your faith produces patience (Lit=endurance) “
When the pressure is on beware of the pressure to err! Many times pressure causes you to run away and take the easy, wide road with the multitudes. That’s when you fall into error and then fear. When you have decided to take the easy erroneous road, don’t think God will help you along.
Isaiah 30:28 “His breath is like an overflowing stream, which reaches up to the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of futility; and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err.”
If your heart is not right with God, why should He lead you into all truth? The verse above applies to the world, but the principle is universal.
We are seeing a massive rise in deceptive teachings particularly relating to Israel, to the pre-tribulation rapture and the tribulation period.
As God prepares to move in new ways with Israel, there will be alarming and dramatic signs. The thrilling sounds of the shofar are shattering the midnight sounds of silence over Jerusalem even right now. (Literally!) The alarm of awakening is sounding; the ancient walls of Jerusalem are vibrating and reverberating with the breath of the Lion of the tribe of Judah – arising ready to roar onto the stage!
This is the time to reach out to the Jews with the good news of salvation in their Jewish Messiah – our Messiah. This is the time to throw out and destroy the obstacles to them coming in to the kingdom, created by the church.
If God has finished with the Jews, as many teach, how do you explain the great regathering to the land? Do you think that is just God having fun, or that it’s just meaningless coincidence?
In this day you are in trouble if you do not know how to discern the voice of truth.
You cannot obey the voice of the Lord if you can’t hear the voice of the Lord. The voice of the letter of the word is not the voice of the Lord. It is dead letter and produces death, legalism and bondage. (2 Corinthians 3:6, Galatians 5:9)
These are very dangerous days, not so much because of any virus, but because required repentance is being ignored and the source of “truth” for the people is the devil’s deceivers – the media.
A good starting presumption is not to trust the mass-media. Regard it with automatic suspicion. Obviously I’m not talking about a hard news event, but all their “exalted” opinion pieces.
Isaiah 2:12 “The day of the Lord of hosts shall come upon everything proud and lofty, upon everything lifted up.”
What follows is some of the sermon or book titles of my own spiritual fathers. I cut my spiritual teeth on this lot, starting in the late 70s. Some of these great men of God would be scorned and rejected today. But their work stands with transforming power, for the few that find them.
These wonderful discipleship teachers of old, pulled the rug out from under you, condemned the hell out of you, and often times left you floored, in surrender to our Lord, in a manner that caused you to be so very thankful! I would trust my life with them!
My aim is to show that just in the titles alone, you can see that they are of another glorious world: (My library contains thousands more.)
Derek Prince: ●Fierce times are coming. ●I will shake all things – the nations, the church and Israel. ●Facing the last days without fear. ●Living in a world falling apart. ●Evil forces of the end times. ●The Spirit of Antichrist ●Disasters that are about to come upon the earth. ●Facing God’s judgment.
Watchman Nee: ●Not I but Christ. ●The messenger of the cross. ● A living sacrifice. ●The spirit of judgement. ●Salvation of the soul. ●Love not the world.
Charles Finney: ●How to be free from the world. ●Victory over the world.
AW Tozer: ●That incredible Christian. ●The divine conquest. Gems from Tozer.
Looking at the titles should give you an idea of the content. How many of these titles do you hear preached today? By the way I have ‘devoured’ these books, tapes and teachings and thousand more about eight times each. I have about 300,000 pages of hand written notes from them.
Be blessed as you prepare your heart mind and soul for the glorious appearing of our Lord – soon and very soon!
Edition 317: June 22nd 2016
The future of Israel and the Jews, Arab lands and the Arabs.
The future of Israel and the Jews, the Arab lands and the Arabs.
The conflict of the ages is about to erupt. You must know God’s work and the devil’s work now. Don’t miss the next edition entitled “World War 2016”!
There is a fast-growing, huge battle erupting and emerging now between truth and error and right and wrong. You had better know where you stand. Many, even some of your own friends and family will be swept away and handed over to the devil in these days.
Very few people know the Bible and its Author. If ever there is a time to know it well, it’s now. The great tragedy lies in the consequences of Biblical and spiritual ignorance. It is the very thing our Lord warned about over and over again, which is deception, especially related to end-time events.
Because most of the church has forsaken God’s word and choice around Israel and the Jews, she has become a very real enemy of God’s work in these days.
The Prophetic Scroll is the result of revelations from our Lord in 1980, which I entitled “The Greatest Drama of all.” This was a series of revelations that’s gone through a number of transformations and adaptations, all based on the culmination of greatest drama’s of all time.
I’ve been criticised, and shot down many times, by various church members and ministers. But in and through it all, I’ve seen the solid truth of our Lord shine through.
I have a growing excitement and a great sadness in my life, which has dramatically changed me in recent months. The sadness relates to many people in the church, who are spiritually destitute, who I know will be swept away, left behind and shipwrecked.
It also relates to many people who will be saved, but will suffer the loss of much reward that was potentially laid up for them, which they’ll miss out on, because of their compromise. They will just scrape into heaven.
The excitement relates to these great end-time dramas about to explode onto the world stage, the lifting of the veil of spiritual blindness upon Israel, and many believers, including many of you, dear readers and friends, who are coming into a deeper love for, and knowledge of our great King, Lord, Saviour and Messiah.
The ways of our Lord:
When you give your life to our Lord and Saviour, He gives you His life. But with it comes a better environment. This doesn’t necessarily mean that this all changes in a flash, although it can.
We can see this in the land of Israel over time, as their salvation draws near, the land itself responds with dramatic changes.
Isaiah 35: 1-8 “The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them (Jews), and the desert shall rejoice and blossom as a rose…The waters shall burst forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert. The parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water…A highway shall be there and a road, and it shall be called, The Highway of Holiness.”
Isaiah 27:6 “Those who come, He shall cause to take root in Jacob. Israel shall blossom and bud and fill the face of the world with fruit.”
In fact we can see this even more dramatically in the whole world and the whole universe, which will soon be released from the curse and delivered into the hands of the redeemed (Romans 8:21).
The exact opposite is also true. As a nation rebels and turns against our Lord and His people, the land itself mourns and a curse enters the land and intensifies. (Hosea 4:2-3)
So, the principle is this: God has a wonderful, glorious plan and a purpose for you and me and the Jews as a national group. His plan is automatically blessed with far reaching consequences. Attack and come against God’s word, His plans and people and you are cursed, again with far reaching consequences, which run right through into the land or the environment of your own life.
Jeremiah 23:9-11 “My heart is broken within me because of the prophets…for the land is full of adulterers; because of a curse, the land mourns. The pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up. Their course of life is evil, and their might is not right. For both prophet and priest are profane; yes in My house I have found their wickedness, says the Lord.” (What incredible words!)
Jeremiah17:5-8 “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart departs from the Lord. He shall be like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see when good comes, but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a land which is not inhabited. Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord and whose hope is in the Lord. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spread out its roots by the river, and will not fear when heat comes…”
Psalm 1:2-3 “His delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law (word), he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.”
Now let’s take this principle revealed in these verses above and apply them to the Middle East.
In Numbers 20:14-29 we see the story of Moses and the children of Judah being treated badly by the king of Edom who would not let them pass through his land, even though Moses promised to go straight through without even using Edom’s water. Numbers 20:21 “So, Edom refused to give Israel passage through his territory; so Israel turned away from him.”
Today, Edom is the general area in a section of Jordan. The king of Edom, in today’s terms can refer to the Arab peoples originating from Jordan and the Palestinians.
Ezekiel 25:12-14 “Thus says the Lord God: Because of what Edom did against the house of Judah by taking vengeance and avenging itself on them, ‘therefore, thus says the Lord God: ‘I will stretch out My hand against Edom, cut off man and beast from it, and make it desolate from Teman; Dedan shall fall by the sword. I will lay My vengeance against Edom by the hand of My people Israel that they may do in Edom according to My anger and fury; and they shall know My vengeance,’ says the Lord.’”
Do you see the future of these Arab peoples who come against God’s people and God’s plans, revealed in these amazing verses above – appropriate in application for today? It is in fact Israel, as God’s “battle axe” who takes vengeance on them! (Jeremiah 51:20).
In the verses below and others like it we see the use of the “Mount Seir” a mountain region in Jordan today. But here is the amazing thing: The word “Seir means, “hairy goat, or a demon.”
Ezekiel 35:1-11 “The word of the Lord came to me saying, Son of man, set your face against Mount Seir (in Jordan) and prophecy against it, and say to it, Thus says the Lord God: ‘Behold, O Mount Seir, I am against you; I will stretch out My hand against you, and I will make you desolate; I will lay your cities waste…then you shall know that I am the Lord. Because you have an ancient hatred, and have shed the blood of the children of Israel by the power of the sword, at the time of their calamity, when their iniquity came to an end, therefore I will prepare you for blood and blood will pursue you.’ Because you have said, ‘these two countries (Judah and Israel) will be mine and we will possess them’, although the Lord was there, therefore as I live says the Lord God, ‘I will do according to your anger and according to the envy which you showed in your hatred against them; and I will make Myself known among them when I judge them.”
These few verses above totally annihilate the entire modern two-state solution attempts!
Do you see when this will happen? It occurs “at the time of Israel’s calamity”. That is at or during the tribulation period! It is coming soon.
But also note in the verse above that God says He will make Himself known to these Arab peoples when He judges them. This implies that some of them will be saved. It will be in the tribulation period. (Isaiah 19:24-25)
The table below, in blue, outlines God’s choice. The family line in red represents the work of the flesh.
Out of this came the 12 tribes of Israel and the 12 tribes of Ishmael.
Eventually, the 12 tribes of Ishmael (mostly Arabs today) will be blessed by God Himself. But be sure of this – it will only be once the backbone and heart of Islam has been destroyed and the Arab peoples turn to the living God (not Allah) in surrender.
Esau was an angry, unforgiving, always roaming, unsettled man. He always had jealous eyes on God’s promises to Jacob (Israel). His ways and his people will not be blessed until they accept God’s choice.
Israel will not escape:
God’s blessing is upon His own choice and word. His blessing is upon Israel, but they will not escape discipline and correction.
He will bring Israel through punishment to salvation and He will destroy her enemies at the same time.
Jeremiah 2:13 “My people have committed two evils; They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, and hewn themselves cisterns – broken cisterns that can hold no water.”
A cistern is a container. Israel has containerized their rejection and forsaking of their own Jewish Messiah, Yeshua, into Rabbinical Judaism. But the cistern is broken! It is leaking all the errors of the Rabbis!
In the verses below we see Israel going into much suffering, but also Israel’s enemies being defeated.
Zechariah 13:8-9 “It shall come to pass in all the land says the Lord, that two thirds in it shall be cut off and die, but one third shall be left in it. I will bring one third through the fire, will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name and I will answer them. I will say, ‘This is My people’, and each one will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’
Isaiah 6:13 “Yet a tenth will be in it, and will return and be for consuming, as a terebinth tree or as an oak, whose stump remains when it is cut down. So the holy seed shall be its stump.”
Zechariah 2:8 “Thus says the Lord of hosts: He has sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you, for he who touches you (Jerusalem) touches the apple of His eye.”
Proverbs 25:11 “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold...”
Ezekiel 37:3-4 (Israel has become a valley of dry bones.) “Son of man, can these bones live?...’Prophesy to these bones and say to them, O dry bones hear the word of the Lord, surely I will cause breath to enter into you and you shall live.’”
Ezekiel 37:14 “I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land, then you shall know that I the Lord have spoken.”
So we can see that God has a glorious plan for the Jews. But right now we are still in the early days of their coming salvation.
Right now the Jews do not recognize their Jewish brother-Messiah, but what incredible drama is about to unfold!!
Genesis 42:8 “So, Joseph recognized his brothers, but they did not recognize him.”
Genesis 45:4 “Joseph said to his brothers, ‘Please come near to me.’ And they came near, and he said, ‘I am Joseph your brother, whom you sold into Egypt.”
Why is there all this obsession with the Jews? Why the importance? Why do some ministries like “The Prophetic Scroll” never shut up about Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews?
It’s because “blindness in part has fallen on the Jews”, and blindness in part has also fallen upon many Gentile Christians and churches, except for the growing number of Christian Zionists. Today we have a fast growing number of Christian anti-Semites and Christian Zionists!
God’s prophetic word is inextricably linked to the Jews – and it’s all unfolding now!
Roots are important: The roots of Christian Zionism come from the early, mostly Jewish church with its Hebraic character. The roots of Anti-Semitism come from Satan, the Catholic church, the early church fathers and most of the reformers. Examine your roots and cut off and cut down the roots of error.
The Jews are indestructible. They can never assimilate into the nations of the world, but they can and will assimilate into their own Hebrew-rooted religion, for want of a term.
The end of the story shows God’s work with the Jews coming to a successful conclusion as the spiritual life of God enters and works in and through them to complete what He originally called them to.
The end of the story shows the ultimate success of God’s work and choice and the ultimate failure of the work of the flesh in and through all who oppose Him.
The end of the story for the Jews is their recognition and acceptance of their Jewish Messiah, Yeshua.
The end of the story shows some Arabs getting saved, but the majority clinging to the religion of works, law and the flesh – Islam and being destroyed by God.
The future will speak and reveal the truth as it only can. But when the future reveals the truth, what will your position be? Will you stand securely in confidence with our Lord and His truth? Will you stand in eternal regret before Satan with all his masses? Will you stand with the hell-bound mass-media of the world?
Genesis 17:18-21 “Abraham said to God, ‘O that Ishmael might live before you’. Then God said: ‘No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call him Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him. As for Ishmael, I have heard you. I have blessed him and will make him fruitful and will multiply him exceedingly...But My covenant I will establish with Isaac.’”
The pilgrimage of truth:
Do you want to make a pilgrimage? Do you want to go and pay homage to Satan in the hell-hole called the Vatican of Rome? Do you want to go there and dance with demons and devils? Or do you want to go to Mecca and pay homage to Allah and the evil religion of hate – Islam?
Or do you want to go to Jerusalem and pay homage to the living God?
As true believers we have the Temple in our hearts and don’t need to go anywhere, but let’s look at what happens in the tribulation period and through into the Millennium:
Jeremiah 3:17 “At that time Jerusalem shall be called ‘The Throne of the Lord, and all nations shall be gathered to it.”
Zechariah 8:3 “Thus says the Lord, ‘I will return to Zion and dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. Jerusalem shall be called the City of Truth, the Mountain of the Lord of Hosts.’”
Zechariah 14:16 “It shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.”
Isaiah 56:7 “...My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.”
Joel 3:20 “Judah shall abide forever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation.”
Psalm 87:3 “Glorious things are spoken of you, O city of God.”
The city of Jerusalem is not mentioned once in the Quran. But if your source of information, like many blinded fools, is CNN, BBC, Sky and the international news media, you would think that their “religion of peace” would have Allah’s desire for Jerusalem at least in one verse!
We must stand up on our knees for the Jews, Jerusalem and Israel – God’s choice.
The amazing message of the deserts:
The deserts of the Middle East are expanding fast. We are seeing massive crop failures, water shortages, droughts and the creeping desert literally swallowing up towns.
What is called the Fertile Crescent in the Middle East is now seeing massive crop failures. Of course climate change is being blamed, but we know better.
This is in the oil-rich Arab nations of the Middle East. The oil wealth of these nations is not getting through.
Very soon, we will see poverty create social action, riots and wars. People suffer intensely in these growing deserts. I recently heard one secular analyst say: “It’s almost like an invisible curse is upon these desert lands!”
The other side of the story is the deserts of Israel. Yes the Negev is still there, but all along the outskirts are abundant farms producing massive crops. Israel is one of the most successful agricultural nations of the world. Israel is turning the desert into a production machine!
There is a great message of cursing and blessing right here!
So, God’s word will come to pass- exactly. His ways and choices are blessed and will endure. His word will be fulfilled in His people. The physical land of Israel has and will continue to see the approaching blessing and respond in kind.
Satan will oppose it all with his counterfeit plan working through the people of the flesh and the ways of the flesh. His physical lands will remain cursed, dry barren thirst-lands. His ways will leave a trail of death and destruction and torment, and amazingly, the whole world will buy it and choose it!
Will you be one of them? I can already name a number of my own friends who once walked as Christian Zionists, who have cast down God’s truth and who now walk with the devil on these issues!
I know many who have put their trust and their lives in the hands of CNN anchors and reporters, because they carry the majority, consensus view.
I took this picture of the south of the Namib Desert – a beautiful, breathtaking, harsh, barren, stunning place, one of my favourite places!

Shalom and grow in grace!
