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

- There are prophetic messages in the two fires at exactly the same time, one in the Notre-Dame Paris and the other at the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount. I will deal them in an upcoming edition.
- Please don’t miss this coming Friday’s Sabbath Report (19th April). It will be a prophetic shocker! (Some will wish they had not read it, and some will fight with me!)
- The US / Israel / Bible alliance has been strengthened through the Netanyahu election win, much to the disgust of the unthankful, ungrateful, increasingly anti-Semitic, pro-Muslim, US Democrats and liberals worldwide. It’s all lining up!
There is huge symbolism in the burning of the Notre-Dame in Paris, with the Al Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount, Jerusalem burning at exactly the same time. It’s a sign of dying Christianity in Europe, but there is more. Notre-Dame was a refuse and centre of the planning and mass murder of millions of Jews in the inquisitions. Even today it is a centre of terrible anti-Semitic art. Europe, - you are on fire – the wrong sort!
Notre Dame is a symbol of pride and pomp, with a historic anti-Israel "flavour" all around it!
You don’t curse Israel and get away with it forever! It is time for “judgment to begin in the house of God.” (1 Peter4:17)
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.

Shabbat Shalom to all and happy Passover!
The hugely important difference between Passover and Easter:
This discourse offers great prophetic insight. It is vital that you see and understand this, because the pressures to conform to error are growing fast. The prophetic message is devastating!
Christian ministers, ignorant of the unadulterated scriptures have the potential to become a Judas.
Woe to those who put stumbling blocks in front of God’s people! We are to worship ourLord in spirit and truth!
(Isaiah 57:14, Leviticus 19:14)
The Bible proclaims the seven feasts of the Lord to be “holy convocations.” They are not to be changed or have the order changed, because they represent God’s course of history.
Passover, the first of the seven, found its prophetic fulfilment in the release of the Jews from Egypt, and their journey to the Promised Land. Passover also speaks of the destruction of the gods of Egypt (a type of the world and its god –Satan) Exodus 12:12-13.
Passover also speaks remarkably of the cross of Calvary and the shed blood of our Lord, in the sprinkling of the blood of the lambs, with hyssop on the doorposts, bringing salvation to those on the inside.
Hyssop: A leafy shrub used in ancient Hebrew purification rites.
Psalm 51:7 “Purge me with hyssop and I will be clean. Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.”
Revelation 7:14 “These are the ones washed white in the blood of the Lamb.”
But, and most importantly, the journey to the Promised Land is prophetic of Israel’s soon coming spiritual journey to the promised land of salvation.
So let’s be very clear, that Passover speaks of: ●Israel’s release from captivity, ●the destruction of the captors, ●and their pagan gods, ●the journey to the Promised Land and, ●the cross of Calvary, which took place over ●three days and nights. ●It speaks of Israel’s return to the land, and the coming salvation of the Jews.
Everything about Easter is of Babylonian, pagan, occult origin, created and inserted into church practice by the Jew-hating Catholics, as a replacement for Passover. (Look it up.)
Ishtar was the day of celebration of the resurrection of the evil god Tammuz, who was believed to have been immaculately conceived by sex between the sun and moon gods. – The moon goddess, had eggs of fertility named after her, called Ishtar eggs. A round bun with “T” on it was eaten as worship to Tammuz. The pagan worship leaders were to make the sign of the “T” over their hearts in honour of Tammuz. Rabbits, which were sex-symbols as well, were introduced.
The Bible commands the people of God to have nothing to do with this unholy lot.
Easter speaks of the sex symbols of Babylon – rabbits and eggs, which are seen in many ancient murals, sculptures, and wall-reliefs, at the feet of a nude sex goddess - queen Ishstar, who was associated with numerous other pagan gods. The word, “Easter” is a transliteration of “Ishtar.”
Today, supposedly, Easter has become a celebration of the events of the cross of Calvary, but not so fast!
Easter adherents claim the events of the cross fell over two days and nights, making a mockery of the truth of the Bible’s three days and nights. (Look it up) Easter is the counterfeit!
Here is the great big problem, and the identification of the presence of Satan in everything to do with Easter:
►According to Catholic tradition and Easter supporters, Easter does not speak of anything to do with Israel’s release from Egypt (the world), the destruction of the pagan gods, and the journey to the Promised Land. This then nullifies the symbolic message of coming salvation through the cross of the Jews.
Easter has surgically removed the powerful history of the Jews and their glorious future.
Do you see the problem? Do you see how clearly we have the modern history of replacement theology and anti-Semitism spelt out in these great omissions?
While I’m in the process of making a lot of people mad, let me take it further:
Have you noticed that Easter celebrators in the church, never have any Hebraic items in their churches? Have you ever noticed that almost without exception, those into replacement theology are Easter celebrators?
You see, there are spirits at work here and they are stirring, and rising now, because they know that just like at Egypt their days are numbered. These spirits are trying to get rid of God’s call on Israel.
So, what about the churches and ministries who say they support Israel, but also play with pagans in their pews, spewing the names of Baal and associates at Easter?
Last year, I heard a terrible statement from one teacher, whom I will keep my distance from, who said: “You must mix paganism with the church, because you can then reach more people”!
I say this almost every year, but here it comes again. The Bible commands a clear, distinct cut and break from all forms of paganism and the occult, including the names!
Far too many ministers teach the hogwash that they’re just using the names of the sex goddess, and others. They are either trapped by the hierarchy of their denomination rulers, too chicken to rock the boat, or bound by the traditions of their pew-warmers. Or of course they are totally blind.
So, Mr. Minister, you say, you only use the names of the pagan gods and teach others to do the same and spread it all far and wide!
Zephaniah 1:4 “...Against the inhabitants of Jerusalem, I will cut off every trace of Baal from this place, the names of the idolatrous priests, with the pagan priests.
Exodus 23:13 “Be circumspect and make no mention of the name of other gods, nor let it be heard from your mouth.”
Jeremiah 10:2 “Do not learn the way of the pagans.” (This goes on to condemn the cutting down of the fir tree, attaching it to the floor, and decorating it with gold and silver balls in honour of the sun and moon gods!)
Deuteronomy 12:30-31 “Take heed to yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed before you, and that you do not enquire after their gods, saying ‘How did these nations serve their gods? I also will do likewise.’ You shall not worship the Lord your God in that way...”
Do you see the prophetic element in the great difference between Passover and Easter? Never the twain shall meet!
Easter is full of intentional omissions and changes, incorrect days and is filled with the occult. Easter denigrates Israel.
Passover is a God-ordained, biblical convocation. Easter is pagan, occult, and of human tradition. The symbols and names of both are as far apart as heaven and hell.
There is a further dangerous thing here. It is about the evil, Babylonian, Egyptian influence on the Jews from the church, ahead of their great time of visitation.
Jeremiah 23:25-26 “I have heard what the prophets have said; who prophesy lies in My name, saying, ‘I have dreamed, I have dreamed!’ ‘How long will this be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies? Indeed they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart, who try to make My people forget My name by their dreams which everyone tells his neighbour, as their fathers forgot My name for Baal.’”
(Baal was a Babylonian pagan god of sex and fertility, who also went by the name: “The Shamen Lord of the Heavens”! The name, “Baal” means “lord or owner of the people.”)
The ancient gods, Baal, Ishtar, Nimrod, Tammuz, Semiramis and others are all connected, and are amongst the end-time gods arising in the world right now!
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.”
I strongly encourage you to read these verses here again – prayerfully and to obey them.
Here is the commitment of The Prophetic Scroll (TPS)
Joshua 24:15 “If it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served or the gods of the Amorites. But as for me and my house (TPS), we will serve the Lord.”
Edition 325: August 17th 2016
The Miracle of the Rapture:
The Miracle of the Rapture:
Most people who reject the rapture are so earthly minded that they are totally blind (and useless)!
The rapture will be the biggest miracle ever not-seen. It will be the biggest, supernatural miracle ever. But you see, most people don’t believe in miracles. They are bound up in the natural world with natural, physical explanations for everything. Apart from being such boring people, they all have a real nasty shock coming!
“Yeah, I’ll believe it when I see it”, they say. Well here’s the double shock: “You won’t see it”. It will happen in an “atomo” (atomic division of a second!) or “twinkling of an eye.” Secondly, even if you did see it, you won’t believe! (Luke 16:31.)
Regret is a terrible thing, because it means that which you regret, may have had the opposite result. You wish that you could turn the clock back!
Most people live for the present. “Me now” is their unsaid motto! They are self-made people with eyes for all things material.
Do you have a hope in Messiah in this worldly kingdom? – You miserable, pitiable idiot!
1 Corinthians 15:19 “If in this life only, we have hope in our Messiah, we are of all men most pitiable. (Lit=miserable).”
The miracle of the rapture also entails a miraculous future universe. It will have no curse, and will be perfect. The abode of the raptured saints is heaven, New Jerusalem, a renewed earth and the whole universe.
Rightly dividing the word of truth:
2 Timothy 2:15 “Be diligent to present yourselves approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
Incorrectly dividing the word of truth, as you can imagine, produces all sorts of doctrinal conflicts that work out as conflicts in reality.
Perhaps the most important (and resisted) doctrinal division is between those who believe in dispensations and those who reject them. What applies to the Jews, and what to the church, and when, is most important.
You must decide whether Daniel’s seventieth week is “determined upon My people” – the Jews or the church. (Daniel 9:24). You must decide whether the “time of Jacob’s trouble” is for Israel or the church. (Jeremiah 30:7). You must decide whether the tribulation saints, those saved in the tribulation, are the church or not. (Revelation 7:14).
Those three alone speak of the reality of dispensations. The church is not in view in those verses at all. They are clearly for Israel and the Jews – and I mean clearly!
They clearly distinguish between what is for the Jews and not for the church. You can’t say that the church is part of the seventieth week of Daniel. You can’t say that the time of Jacob’s trouble is for the church. If you do you are contradicting God to His face.
So now, here is the big issue: If you agree with God that “My people” of Daniels’ seventieth week is the Jews and if you agree with God that the time of Jacob’s trouble is for Jacob and His offspring, the Jews, then how can you say that the church will be the object of God’s wrath, Satan’s wrath, and man’s wrath throughout the tribulation?
In other words, how can you believe in a post-tribulation rapture? If you believe in a post -tribulation rapture and agree with God that tribulation is for the Jews, you need to make an appointment with your local shrink.
But here’s an even more scary thought: If you believe in a post-tribulation rapture, you do believe that there is no distinction between the church and Israel. In other words, you are of replacement theology!
You may protest that statement, but if you honestly think it through, it is so.
The post-tribber has many dilemmas with dividing the scriptures rightly, especially in the Revelation. They must put Revelation chapters four and five, dealing with the arrival of the raptured saints in heaven, after chapter nineteen, dealing with the end of the tribulation. They have many other similar problems.
Surprising rapture miracles:
The following verses describe various aspects of the rapture or results of the rapture. Note the words in bold and then the accumulated sentence I’ve compiled at the end.
Daniel 12:3 “Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever.”
1 Corinthians 15:35-42 “How are the dead raised up? And with what body do they come? ‘Foolish one, what you sow is not made alive until it dies...but God gives it a body as He pleases, and to each seed its own body. All flesh is not the same, but there is one kind of flesh of men, another of beasts, birds and fish. There are also celestial bodies and terrestrial, but the glory of the celestial is one and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, another of the moon and another of the stars, for one differs from another. So also is the resurrection of the dead...”
1 Corinthians 15:44 “It (the body) is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.”
1 Corinthians 15:49 “We have borne the image of the man of dust, so we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.”
1 John 3:2 “Beloved, now we are the children of God; and it has not been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him.”
1 Corinthians 15:51-55 “Behold, I tell you a mystery; we shall not all sleep (die), but we shall be changed – in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye, at the last trump (for the church age)...this corruption must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality...death will be swallowed up in victory...”
Philippians 3:20-21 “Our citizenship is in heaven, from which we eagerly wait for the Saviour, the Lord Yeshua Messiah, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body...”
Luke 24:36-43 “Now as they (disciples) said these things, Yeshua Himself stood in the midst of them and said to them, ‘Peace to you.’ But they were terrified and frightened, and supposed they had seen a spirit...He said to them, ‘behold My hands and My feet, it is I, handle Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bone...then He ate in their presence.’”
1 Corinthians 13:12 “Now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will know just as I am also known.”
2 Timothy 2:12 “If we endure, we shall also reign with Him...”
Daniel 7:18 “The saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom and possess the kingdom forever and ever.”
Isaiah 9:7 “Of the increase of His government and peace, there will be no end...”
Revelation 22:5 “There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever.”
►Here is a sentence I’ve made up of the key-words (in bold) from the verses above:
We as true believers in our Messiah will: ●Shine forever with different degrees of brightness. ●Our bodies will be spiritual and natural, just like the heavenly Man, able to eat as in the physical. ●We will be just like Him after His resurrection. ●We will be forever incorruptible, immortal, and never able to die or get sick. ●We will be conformed (made new) according to His body. ●We will be able to transcend the physical and spiritual at will. ●We will know all things, and all people with complete wisdom. ●We will rule and reign with Him in everlasting peace forever.
1 Peter 3:15 “...Always be ready to give a defence to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.”
The reason for the hope in me is that every atom, cell and molecule of me will soon be changed miraculously into an unimaginable glorious body that can transcend the physical and spiritual realms at will, and will be able to travel the universe at the speed of thought. It will be sinless, pure, holy, and totally wise.
Imagine some unsaved person asking you for the reason for the hope that is in you and you give that answer in the sentence above! No wonder people think we are mad in the head! But celebrate O mad ones – begin to dance for joy. This miraculous future is soon to be more real that the present world. Guess who will then be the ones truly mad in the head?
1 Corinthians 1:19 “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
So, who is the idiot now?
We will be in supernatural bodies forever, but we also will be superhuman! The Bible doesn’t give us clues as to exactly what we will be able to do or achieve, but we can presume that it will be far more and greater than our present state.
A supernatural body prepared for hell:
All people will live forever. The unsaved, logically, also have to get an eternal body, a resurrection body, at their resurrection – the resurrection of the damned. But the unsaved will be imprisoned in those bodies, in hell. I think that’s the most tragic thing I can think of.
Imagine being created by God for a purpose, ignoring it or rejecting it, dying and going to hell in a body that lives forever. It’s a terrible thought, but the truth.
Part of the wonderful reason for the creation of every human is to live forever in God’s will and purpose. Obviously no one can live forever in these natural bodies. So everyone gets a new eternal body.
The sceptic’s diary:
One of the sceptic’s objections to the rapture is that God would not do something like that because it would leave behind a path of destruction as Christians suddenly disappear from driver’s seats, pilot’s seats, and many other critical positions.
Well, I understand the sentiment, but the rapture has to happen. Besides, the rapture will be the greatest supernatural miracle ever, touching every single atom of the believer’s body. So, if it is to be that, would it not be possible for God to create a lesser miracle at the same time and have those who are to be raptured all in some safe spot, just for that fleeting moment?
Okay, that’s just speculation, but as said, the rapture will happen.
Besides this, the great shock awaiting many is that few will go in the rapture.
Some problems for the post-tribulation rapture adherents:
If you believe in a post-tribulation rapture you can’t be looking for and watching for our Lord. You must look for the antichrist, because, according to you, he must appear first. And by the way, when the antichrist has appeared and the tribulation has begun you will know the exact day of the Second Coming, because they are numbered.
The message to the seven churches of the Revelation plots the course of the church. It also gives us all very relevant messages for today. Most analysts agree that the message to the church of Thyatira applies to the Catholic church and other similar orthodox churches.
God condemns this church in the most horrific language and form. Here is just one verse from the discourse:
Revelation 2:22 “I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her, into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds.”
This church is promised that it will be cast into the great tribulation. In the original, the definite article is there. In other words, it is THE great tribulation and not tribulation in general, which we are all subject to.
Now, here’s the amazing, logical thing, which most people miss. This verse would be a mockery in light of a post-tribulation rapture. The verse by nature of the language used is conditional. In other words, if you repent, you will not go into the great tribulation. So if we have a post-tribulation rapture, what are you talking about John?
Do you see that amazing hidden gem in that verse?
Here’s another gem from the verse: Only a certain type of people are told that they will be cast into great tribulation. That implies that there are others who will not!
A post-tribulation rapture dilemma:
Revelation 7:13-14 “...Who are these arrayed in white robes and where did they come from? These are they who came out of great tribulation and have washed their robes...”
This is one of the key post-tribulation rapture “proof” verses. They say, “You see there, we are going through the great tribulation”
The original word used for “came out” is Strong’s G1537 “Ek” meaning “clean out away from” It is the same word used in other passages describing the pre-tribulation rapture, like Revelation 3:10.
Could we now write the verse this way? Revelation 7:13-14 “...Who are these arrayed in white robes and where did they come from? These are they who came clean out away from the great tribulation, and washed their robes...”
In other words, “these are they who escaped the great tribulation.” So rather than prove that we go through the tribulation, it implies that we don’t!
When will the rapture occur?
The answer to the question is, “I don’t know for sure”. The answer is not, “I have no idea.” Today there are many reputable Bible watchers and teachers seeking, looking, researching, studying and coming up with various answers. Some are consistent with each other, some are not, but almost all are very close to each other.
Some differ by a year or so. I think the very fact that so many watchers are so close, is a powerful thing in itself. It is proof of the nearness. Yes there are el-weirdo’s out there and many deceived men and women. Yes there are disciples of the devil, throwing in their normal spanner in the works. You must come against them or ignore them at least.
Genesis 7:1-4, 10 reveals that Noah goes into the Ark seven days before the flood. The door was supernaturally shut by God then.
As Noah and family had to repopulate the destroyed earth in what was now a new post- flood dispensation, so the saved Jews and Gentiles of the tribulation will repopulate the new earth in a new dispensation called the Millennium.
Joshua chapter six speaks of the sounding of the trumpets for seven days before Jericho fell. Remember that Rahab, a type of the church, was removed from Jericho with her family before the city fell.
Both Noah going into the Ark seven days before the flood and Rahab being removed from Jericho before it fell speak of a pre-tribulation rapture.
But here is something important to consider: Could we presume that we will know seven days before the tribulation begins, when it will begin? There may be a reference here in these two stories that we will know and “see the day approaching.”
Okay, that’s speculation, but it’s not too far out to be true. We will have to wait and see!
Having said all of this, we are most certainly in the time, season and generation of our Lord’s coming. Obviously this is not cast in stone, but the greatest probability is that it will be on one of the two days of the Feast of trumpets, which is the next to be fulfilled.
It is possible that this one in October, may be it, but many of the signs are not yet in place. It is most likely to be “trumpets” of September 2017 – again, not cast in stone.
Please bear this verse in mind:
Hebrews 10:25 “...As you see the day approaching.”
Today, tragically, we have many so-called ministers of the gospel out there who are guiding their sheep, but they are blind.
I’m continually amazed at how ignorant of the English language most Christian ministers, are. They don’t know the difference between date-setting and watching. In fact the command to “watch” in the Bible is exactly that. It is a command, not an option. And it is a warning if neglected!
As always, be careful of date setting, but you had better be a watcher!
There are also many who have no gifts of revelation and who don’t operate in the revelatory gifts of the Spirit. Many of them have no idea at all about any of these end times things. They can’t see or hear what the Spirit is saying now relating to these things and especially the urgency of the time.
There are many with deep personality flaws, rejection fears and other insecurities who come to the things of God and among the saints, find the gullible ones, whom they can manipulate to gain control of them, to elevate and prop up their own terrible weakness and hide their flaws.
These ones are all over YouTube and other media operating in techniques of manipulation to gain domination.
Romans 13:11 “Do this, knowing the time, it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.”
I’ve shared many times on the incredible revelation wrapped up in the Bible words “no one knows the day or hour.” I’m not going into that again now. But let me tell you what that verse does not say: It does not say “no one knows the week, month, year or season”! Think about that O sceptic.
The ten virgins of Matthew 25 are not five believers and five unbelievers. All ten are believers (virgins). Five run out of oil, which is always a type of the Holy Spirit. This is a clear reference to those outside of the baptism of the Spirit. They are not able to endure.
Let me add that those ministers of the gospel who avoid or play down eschatology, always have worldly leanings and lead their people the same way.
When I was at school I loved science. But let me tell you what science can’t do. It can’t transcend or cross the line from the natural world to the spiritual. In the natural world we all know what a vacuum is. There is nothing in it, no air.
But spiritually there is no such thing as a vacuum. There is no such thing as nothing. You are either in an environment where Satan is king, and rules or where our Messiah is king and rules in His invisible kingdom.
Job 41:34 “He (Satan) is king over all the children of pride.”
Because you can’t see either, doesn’t mean they’re not there. At the rapture, or at death, suddenly, in a blinding flash the veil into the spiritual will be opened for everyone!
The saved will immediately see, know and rejoice. The unsaved, at their “rapture” into hell will also see, but will scream in sorrow, horror and regret.
