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.

●Russia warns Israel after air-strike in Damascus. (It seems Russia is the Middle East big-daddy)
●Israeli Air Force strikes Syria for the third in as many days. (The situation is escalating fast)
●Russia condemns Israel for retaliation over Hezbollah-desired land grab in Golan as tensions rise.
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 318: June 29th 2016
World War this year!
World War this year!
That title may surprise you. Some of the reasons are also surprising!
This is not based on what I or anybody thinks. It’s not based on the news media and or the opinions of multitudes of politicians. This is based on a stirring deep in my soul and spirit. Yes there are a lot of logical reasons all around us why world war is not far off. But this is much more than that.
The world is about to shake, rock and roll to the tune of God’s judgment and righteous anger.
As regular readers know, I’m very cautious about saying the Lord told me this or that. I do it very rarely, because it is extremely rare. I know that throws a curved ball into many You Tube ministries and modern flashy, me-now ministries with little substance of their own. So to affirm their near-emptiness, they have to say, “The Lord told me.”
Right now, the Lord has told me nothing audibly. I do sense and feel an inner still-small voice of the Lord speaking. He has not given me dates or finer details. It’s an inner prompting with various confirmations, which I won’t go into.
If I say, “the Lord has told me” and it doesn’t come to pass, I am a false prophet (and so are all those out there who continuously say, “The Lord told me” and nothing happens.) But if I say, this is an inner voice or prompting, – yes I may be wrong and that does not make me a false prophet.
So, this edition is based on an inner voice, knowledge of the prophetic scriptures, a look at reality all around us, biblical calendars and timing of many things, but all with a word a caution. The caution is this: Don’t put undue weight on things that are not clear cut and always, always keep your central focus and eyes on our great King and Saviour, Yeshua our Messiah and God.
Europe teetering on the edge:
Europe has never truly repented of its anti-Semitism. In fact the disease is growing fast just as it did before WW11. Israel has few friends in Europe and a growing number of enemies. God’s blessing or cursing on friends or enemies of Israel has never been revoked. It stands and always comes to pass somewhere down the line.
Brexit will lead to big troubles.
It’s more about Europe than Britain. It will most likely lead to other nations pulling out of Europe as well, causing the ultimate collapse of Europe. The remnants of Europe will then be just in the right place for a great reformation into the prophesied 10-nation beast in the area of the old Roman Empire.
To get there, much upheaval, economic catastrophe, and political earthquakes are needed. Eyeing out the snake shedding its skin and putting on a new one will be the various components of Islam. The western leg of the new beast will be a number of current European nations and the eastern leg will be Turkey and some other Muslim nations.
As you should be aware (I’ve published it numerous times) the purpose of Muslim migration according to the Quran, is for jihad and Islamic takeover.
Do you think Quran-believing Muslims are going to sit back and watch as Europe implodes and then reforms?
My friends, one of the facets of coming world war will be the fall of Europe, the intervention of Islam, and the reforming of the European beast into its tribulation-ready role. In fact regular readers would know that I’ve predicted this numerous times and written entire editions on it before including edition 299 entitled “Europe is doomed” of 17th February.
Europe is about to begin morphing into a new beast ready for its tragic end-time role and host of Satan in the form of the antichrist. In its blindness, Europe loves Satan and hates the Jews.
Globalisation or nationalism:
Globalisation involves control where Nationalism is about self determination. Globalisation has many characteristics similar to Babylon of old. Globalisation is about attempting to build world peace through mixture of all things unholy.
I will be writing much more on these things as they develop before us.
But here is what God’s desire is:
Acts 17:26 “He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on the face of the earth, and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation.”
The globalists combined with inter-faith orientated churches will not sit back and let nationalism become the ruling force! They will cause a huge war to seize control.
Israel is solidly nationalistic, by God’s decree and will!
Why the soon-coming world war?
Every single world empire that opposed the Jews fell.
Nazi Germany orchestrated the Holocaust and they, as a nation, were almost immediately destroyed in WW11.
Nazi Germany tried to exterminate the Jews, but God birthed the modern nation of Israel in the smoke and stench of the death of the Nazi’s and their allies.
Many anti-Semitic Jew-haters look to the Holocaust as a victory, but they’re looking in the wrong place. The Holocaust failed to get rid of the Jews and God birthed the nation of Israel in May 1948, just after the war ended in 1945! The funny thing is that neither Europe, nor Islam nor the world, has learnt the lesson that out of Auschwitz, marched modern Jewish Israel!
Modern day Europe, including Germany have again turned anti-Semitic, pro-Palestinian, pro-Islam and pro-the BDS Movement. They have not yet paid for it! They will soon pay for it. My friends Europe is doomed. Don’t underestimate those words. It’s just a matter of time.
If you’re a Jew living in Europe, make plans to get out and return to Israel. DO it!
The US is teetering on the precipice of either cursing or blessing Israel. As such she is extremely vulnerable to God’s judgement, but has not yet crossed the line as Europe has. There is still enough salt and light in the US, and still enough supporters of Israel to swing the balance, but time is just about up.
As sure as Germany was destroyed because of the Holocaust, so Europe will soon hit the wall in a big way. It will then reform into a new beast, awaiting it’s collision with God’s judgement.
Don’t try to be a wise guy and outsmart God in things like this. Remember the great surprise of Exodus 9:16 where God raises up Egypt to bring her down and show His magnificent power! Only fools think that’s not politically correct!
Do you know that many European politicians support the leader of the Palestinian Authority (P.A.) Abbas? They finance the P.A. They support the P.A. in the UN and they support the plans of the P.A.
Here is a recent statement by Abbas: “The way to stop global terrorism is by ending the Israel occupation of Palestine.” (Jerusalem Post 22nd June.)
The two-state solution is coming to a head now. The P.A. continues to lie about almost everything. Hamas continues to construct numerous tunnels for the purpose of attacking Israel. Hamas and the PA have declared that not a single Jew will be allowed into the new nation, Palestine, which they intend creating.
●Israel has just announced that it will build a 100 km wall around Gaza for protection purposes. It will be ten meters high and ten meters underground! What do you think the world will say to that?
●Because of Europe’s financial support of the PA, watch Europe implode financially – soon.
The church and the coming world war:
You may have heard the term: “As goes the spiritual, so goes the natural.” The church is the light restraining the darkness. “If the salt loses its savour its good for nothing” says the Bible.
Much of the church has fallen asleep in the face of the coming storm.
Isaiah 5:13 “My people have gone into captivity because they have no knowledge ...” The word “knowledge” is Strong’s H1847 meaning “perceptive, discerning” knowledge.
This verse applies perfectly to all of God’s people, Jews and Gentiles.
It is the duty of the church to know Bible prophecy, identify it and warn its members of the dangers. It is the duty of the church to keep itself pure and holy, separate from the dictates of modern man and the opinions of the world.
A church divided is always weak. It is a “broken cistern” that cannot contain the power of God. Truth, life, light, and power – all leak out of a broken, divided cistern / church.
In so many ways the modern church fits perfectly into the category called “The days of Noah” in which the people were full of worldly compromise, evil, wickedness and blinded to their own coming judgement.
The real message of the “days of Noah” is terribly tragic. It is simply that in face of intense, worsening evil, wickedness, violence and trouble, modern man just doesn’t care and carries on as normal.
►The message of the “days of Noah” is that modern man has become truly psychopathic! He feels nothing. His conscience is seared. He is like a blind wild beast.
It’s as David says in Psalm 119:53 “Indignation (Lit=horror) has taken hold of me, because of the wicked who forsake Your word / law.”
The church should be a watchman to its own members and to the world!
Ezekiel 33:6 “If the watchmen sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, in his iniquity, his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.
Isaiah 21:11 “Watchman, what of the night? Watchman what of the night?”
The watchmen, except for a few, have ignored the coming night! In this deadly night, demons will roam every street and highway looking to enter the hearts of the people.
The church today is largely deaf to God, blind and ignorant to His now word. Many churches have blood on their hands. Their leaders are guilty of the doom of their sheep. They are all drenched in blood.
The Jews and the coming war:
The Bible shows that God will bring His people to salvation. But they will recognize their Messiah in times of great trouble and war.
Ezekiel 20:34-37 “I will bring you (Israel) out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you are scattered, with a mighty hand, with an outstretched arm and with fury poured out. I will bring you into the wilderness of the peoples, and there I will plead My case with you face to face…I will make you pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant.”
●●Micah 7:8-9 “Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; when I fall I will arise, when I sit in darkness the Lord will be a light to me...He will bring me forth to the light, and I will see His righteousness.
●●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.”
And then finally, Israel will herself become a beacon of light, God’s messenger of the good news to the nations:
Isaiah 49:6 “I also will give you (Israel) as a light to the Gentles, that you should be My salvation to the ends of the earth.”
But because of Israel’s stubbornness she will come to her Messiah in great world conflict.
●As God birthed Israel the nation, just after WW11, again in the dust and smoke of this coming war, God will birth Israel spiritually!
The Temple on the Temple Mount:
Daniel 9:27 and other portions of scripture require a new end-time (third) temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem at the earliest, at mid-point in the seven-year tribulation. The Temple Institute and even some in government are calling for and preparing for a new temple. There is in fact, a growing “temple movement” in Israel.
The plans have already been drawn up and every single temple item has already been made and is in waiting.
The Jews have yearned and prayed for a new temple for a long time.
Jewish and Gentile believers do not need a temple. It is here already. It is in our hearts by the work of the Holy Spirit. But it’s a different story for unredeemed Israel. In fact this will be the very temple in which the antichrist will set up his rule and reign.
There is another deadly side to the coming temple story. Today there is a strong movement amongst certain Jews, Muslims and Christians to turn this coming temple into a multi-faith house of worship for all nations, with the intention of bringing peace to the world.
If you know your Bible that is exactly what Satan will do in his short existence as the false prophet and the antichrist.
Personally, my only interest in this temple is the fact that Bible prophecy requires it and it’s coming existence will be yet another proof of the veracity of the scriptures.
But what has all of this got to do with a coming world war?
If we are heading for a tribulation start later this year or next, time is just about up for the building of the temple. This means that something very dramatic has to happen on that Mount very soon. A big war now may see the destruction of the Dome of the Rock, making way for the temple or some agreement may come about to allow it’s building on the open land just next to the Dome.
Most are not aware that there are a number of subterranean Muslim Mosques right underneath that open area.
Either way – time is of the essence. These things are very likely going to play out this year.
Keep in mind that war almost always ends with a peace agreement of sorts. We may well see this Temple Mount become the subject or part of a soon-coming peace agreement.
How and when will it all play out?
Of course it would be presumptuous to say that we know exactly how it will all play out. There are many variables that fit within Bible prophecy.
●We know that we are in the end-days. ●We know that the Jews are beginning to see their Messiah. ●We know that a temple on the mount in Jerusalem is required at the half way mark into the tribulation. ●We know that Satan knows his days are almost up and his attacks are increasing. ●We know that the earth itself is groaning and starting to shake. ●We know that homosexuality is a central key to end-time judgment. ●We know that many watchmen are “seeing eye to eye” on Israel. ●We know that many false watchmen, prophets and deceivers are running riot. ●We know that a number of wars are prophesied for these times.
So, all these things are coming to a head and a dramatic conclusion. How long can it all go on? Not much longer!
There are many of us watchmen who are very eager for things to begin rolling. I know some of us have a consistent inner feeling that it’s all starting up now. But I won’t put the horse before the cart or jump the gun.
The world is about to erupt into war. It will be this year. It will involve many nations. I don’t know exactly when but looking at probabilities September through October this year are likely to be monumental!
Right now the focus is on Britain and Europe. But Russia, Syria, and others are all in line for prophesied war very soon.
Yes Europe has been on the sidelines relating to war itself, but don’t hold your breath! Europe is about to be smacked hard!
The effects of war:
The effects of war are always terrible and far reaching. The first major effect, especially of world war is economic.
The world economy is far from strong. It is overvalued and swimming in debt. This situation can go on for a while simply because the governments of the world own the printing presses. But even in this case there is a limit. The cause or trigger of an economic collapse is always sentiment. It is a sudden dose of fear of the future. And that’s exactly what world war will produce.
World stock markets will deteriorate fast as fear rules. But gold equities and gold trading instruments as well as physical gold will fly high. Gold is always a hedge against fear, inflation and the dollar.
Other commodities will fall in value immediately including oil. Oil is very much linked to supply and demand, so the price could fall hard or go through the roof depending on this supply / demand equation. For example, if Middle Eastern oil supply is disrupted the price will go up. But if war causes the demand to drop, the opposite occurs. So it’s about which side tips the balance.
►Many people like to quote the verse saying that gold and silver will fall. (Ezekiel 7:19) They gleefully say, “You see the people will throw their gold and silver out because it will have no value.” But read the verse properly you will see that this occurs in the day of the Lord’s wrath, which is halfway through the tribulation.
Don’t sell your gold shares or throw out your gold and silver trading instruments. Gold will be the place to be. It is already rising fast.
Agricultural and food commodities will be slammed on the markets.
The good news:
War is one of those things that shakes things up. All the false securities that people put their trust will shake and fall, causing many to turn to our Lord in greater surrender.
Isaiah 55:6 “Seek the Lord while He may be found.”
John 9:4 “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.”
You see, as the spiritual darkness intensifies all around us, people can’t see. They are blinded by the living, evil darkness and this is the result:
Many will try to see the light, but will only see darkness.
Don’t wait until it’s too late. Seek, find, know and love our Lord now.
Even the wild animals have their “watchmen”! I took this picture at a waterhole in the dry desert of Etosha, Namibia.
Shalom and grow in grace!
