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!
Help in troubled times:
The US economy is strong, as are the major world economies, but we are seeing critical cracks in then all as they slow! Technical indicators are pointing to a world recession. The most reliable indicator is the US bond-yield curve inversion. I won’t go into details, because, it’s not our thing. It is a reliable recession indicator.
The timing of this lines up with so many other prophetic events, soon to come. Once a recession begins it escalates into many other areas.
A recession does not mean a market crash is on the horizon, although that’s always possible, based on sudden falling sentiment, which spreads like lightning. It means hard times are coming.
Why mention this? It is because these things affect the whole world, including Christians. Are you able to withstand coming troubles? Yes, the worst will be in the tribulation, but we are in the forerunner period now.
Many believers will be casting out economic recession demons, to no avail. Many will be asking why, why, why! It’s often a different story when your own family is involved. Are we as believers all family?
It’s difficult to recognise other believers as such, and as part of our very own family, with who we will be spending eternity. Through the new birth, we are brought together by the blood of our Lord.
Troubles in the world demand your attention and focus, but if you let them eat into you, they will damage you, discourage you, lead you astray and rob you of your coming reward. These troubles in the world will be temporary and will soon make way for a new glorious eternity!
The things of the Spirit of God are real and alive. You can’t think through to spiritual reality with your intellect or understanding, but you can and must see and get rid of the obstructions to the Spirit of God being released in and through you to other people.
God’s word – the truth, is your anchor and your hope. It is your reality and it is the source of your help and for others in trouble. It is His ancient word, a miracle and a mystery that is still so relevant today, in interpretation and application! What is amazing to me is that God’s word is so ancient, yet so true. It outlines the very reason why fallen modern man will reject it. It shows that modern man has another, modern gospel, chopped and changed to suite the sin-loving, compromised masses!
Ancient metal Bibles found in Jordan:
John 6:63 “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you, they are spirit and are life.”
Proverbs 23:23 “Buy the truth and do not sell it, also wisdom, instruction and understanding.”
Psalm 62:5 “My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him.”
Note the amazing things in the verses above: Truth, wisdom, instruction and understanding are essential in these days. The source is exclusively, the Spirit of God, turning words to life!
In the face of troubles, people run to all sorts of sources for help, including the occult. There they find comfort and relief from Satan himself, in disguise, for a short while – then he kills!
But people also run to stable believers for help, are you able to really help them in the things of God and the things that will matter for eternity?
Whatever remains untouched by the work of the cross and the Spirit in of God in you, remains untouched in others too. It is the way of the mystery of the work of the cross that draws people to our King and Lord. These, the broken ones, carrying their cross, are the beautiful ones in these days.
Psalm 42:7 “Deep calls under deep!”
You can do many good things in life, all devoid of the Spirit of God and amounting to a big zero.
2 Corinthians 4:10 “We carry around in our body the death of Yeshua, so that His life may revealed in our bodies.”
What a staggering verse that is? We carry death to produce life!
Have you thought of the fact you are walking containers of the mystery of the death of our Lord – salvation for others?
Romans 6:5 “If we have been united with Him in His death, we will also be united with Him in resurrection.”
Are you able to accurately help seeking believers on all the issues of Israel, Jerusalem, the Jews and the plan of God for them? I tell you, we might know these things well, but the great majority of believers worldwide are in the dark on this incredible and exciting subject.
As a result of their darkness they are vulnerable to be Satan’s “light.”
Edition 342: December 14th 2016
Idols of the mass-media!
Idols of the mass-media:
By mass-media, I’m referring to the mass news channels like CNN, SKY, BBC, the print media and the like. Included, is the social media and the world’s entertainment industry.
“Coincidently” many of these mass-media operations are owned by the same companies, covertly or overtly. The owners are the real decision-makers in terms of overall policy. Very few of them are independent in the true sense of the word.
There is of course one big boss ruling all of them from behind the scenes. His name is Satan, “the god of this world”. He is very clever, because he has successfully hidden himself from all of his employees, yet his dictates direct and influence them thoroughly.
Idolatry is the worship, admiration, love of, or reverence for something or someone generally forbidden by the scriptures. This can also include hero-worship or simply the worship of self. Idol-worship is characterised by obsession, and control. It is aimed at exalting and elevating something or someone to god-status.
Idolatry is mixed and rooted with all things satanic. It is akin to witchcraft in many respects.
Journalism comes from a root word meaning “to inform.” The written, spoken or visual word carries with it a sort of blind authority. People automatically give it importance and impute, ascribe and assign truth to it.
The first and most important thing to bear in mind when dealing with the mass-media is that their ultimate intention is not to inform you but to change you. It is to change you into a subject acceptable to Satan.
●Biblically there is a pattern of learning revealed in 2 Peter 1:12 “I will not be negligent to put you in remembrance of these things, though you know them.”
Here we see the pattern of repetition as a godly method of learning and becoming informed. The mass-media employs the same technique but in a godless form. With biblical truth removed and cast down, the mass-media’s method of informing the people becomes fully evil. It was in fact used extensively and successfully by the Nazis!
Adolf Hitler said this: “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.”
This could well be the silent, unwritten motto of the modern media! It most certainly is true in their dealing with the things of God and Israel in particular.
Do you see the similarity with the big Hitler, mass-media statement and the use of repetition to produce enslavement?
When you (or the media) remove God from the environment, very quickly the devil becomes manifest! When the law of God is present in society it acts as a general restrainer. (Double meaning intended!)
Don’t be fooled, the media and its god is at work today, and you are one of their targets. They intend using you to fulfil their ultimate evil plan, which they can’t even see or know exists! The media generally, does not acknowledge the existence of Satan, demons and hell.
►The media-created man is a god in the making, an idol awaiting destruction by God.
Genesis 3:4-5, (Satan to Adam) “You will not surely die...you will be like God.” (If you obey me.)
There is a new brotherhood of all mankind under the fatherhood of the world’s god in the federation of the new world, but it’s full of sin, evil, wickedness and ungodliness.
Sin desensitises you to the Spirit of God. Unbelievers are already fully desensitised with a sin-dead conscious. In their world of variables, anything goes.
In this most powerful verse below, we see that the work of the spirit of the nations (mass-media included) is to remove restraint and break the bonds or cords of God’s control within us, but note their end!
Psalm 2:1-5 (Amp) “Why do the nations rage and assemble with commotion and uproar and imagine an empty scheme? The kings and rulers of the earth take counsel together against the Lord and His anointed One –the Messiah. They say, ‘Let us break their bands of restraint and cast their cords of control from us. He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord has them in derision and supreme contempt. He mocks them. He speaks to them in His deep anger...”
At the end of the day, the mass-media is inextricably linked to the nations of the world and the entire world-system and it has a course!
The main idols of the media:
There are far too many to numerate here, but let’s have a look at some:
●The idol of pride:
This is one of the big indirect idols of the media. They subtly teach you to be strong in the power of self. The Bible condemns it in the form of “the pride of life.” (1 John 2:16) They want you to be filled with pride. They want you to glorify self and elevate self and self-love above God’s ways, will and word. They want you to have their values and morality (or lack of it).
When you are filled with pride, you are totally useless to God. You are dead to God and blinded in your pride. You have been brought down. The media has successfully blinded you and changed you into one of their own products.
Job 41:34 “He (Satan) is king over all the children of pride.”
●The idol of illegitimate sex:
The mass-media promotes this all the time. It is an idol of modernity.
Anything-goes sex with anyone, anytime, anywhere, anyhow is against God’s word and is an affront to His institution of marriage. The media has legitimised it all in the name of human rights – exalted above God’s “rights.”
●The idol of wasted time:
An idol of the mass-media is to waste your time. The Bible says that we are to count or number our days. (Psalm 90:12) That actually means to make our days meaningful in terms of eternal value and reward. It means that we should not waste our time in things of no spiritual value.
Today almost everything of the entertainment world is a pure waste of time. It is self-indulgence to the extreme. It is the worship of idols, to say nothing of the evil morality behind it all.
I don’t really have a problem with people following or participating in sport, although I don’t at all. However, there is a fine line between it being okay and it crossing into idolatry.
●The idol of Inter-Faith:
All roads lead to God, says the mass-media. Lately they have been extremely vociferous in this regard. True biblical Christianity will forever be separate from all other religions, due to the eternal, separating power of the cross.
The media changes this, by removing the cross. They end up with “another Jesus”, a cross-less Barabbas. Because a new one-world religion is revealed in Bible prophecy, the media must sponsor it, promote it and idolise it.
●The idol of Palestinian rights:
A powerful, big idol of the mass-media includes Palestinian rights above the rights of God.
Israel is much more than God’s choice; it is His workmanship. The mass-media actually really thinks they can destroy what God has made!
The new Jesus of the media is a Palestinian not a Jew.
The media is now involved in its great final, big end-time role as agent of Satan, rewriting God’s word, changing it to delegitimize the State of Israel and the Jews and to pour favour upon Islam. It is not only their pro-Palestinian stance that is the problem, but their growing attacks on Jews and Christian Zionists.
But Israel is far from perfect.
The following three verses reveal God’s judgement on Israel for their idolatry.
Ezekiel 23:30 “I will do these things to you (Israel) because you have gone after the Gentiles, because you have gone after their idols.”
Ezekiel 36:18 “I poured out My fury on them for the blood they had shed on the land, and for their idols which they had defiled it. So I dispersed and scattered them among the nations.”
Ezekiel 14:4-6 “...Everyone of the house of Israel who sets up his idols in their hearts, and puts before him what causes him to stumble into iniquity, and then comes to the prophet, I will answer him according to the multitude of his idols. Thus says the Lord God, ‘repent, turn away from your idols and all your abominations.’”
These verses are shocking and reveal the seriousness of these things. But has God forsaken His people? No never!
►We know that Israel will return and repent and be delivered.
►There is no indication that the Palestinians under Islam, will ever repent, except for odd individuals.
So why does the mass-media favour the Palestinians and Islam? Because “they are of their father the devil, and his will they will do!”
Smashing the Ten Commandments:
The mass-media has smashed the commands of God.
The mass-media has taken all the remnants of smashed-up truth and mixed it all together in a giant blender. It now includes: Truth, error, lies, true doctrine, false doctrine, idolatry, worship, witchcraft, sin, evil, right and wrong all mixed together.
The media think that by mixing all things together, they have the truth. What they have is their “truth” – fully judged and rejected by the living God!
Proverbs 17:13 “Whoever rewards evil for good, evil will not depart from his house.”
Proverbs 17:15 “He who justifies the wicked, and who condemns the just, both of the alike are an abomination to the Lord.”
Psalm 115:4-8 “Their idols are silver and gold, the work of man, they have mouths that do not speak, eyes that do not see, ears that do not hear...Those who make them (idols) are like them; so is everyone who trusts in them.”
The time has come to distinguish and separate, cut and break from the idols and lies of the mass-media. A foreboding, foreshadow and forewarning of destruction is all around us today. The writing is on the wall of the world. They have messed with the holy things of God.
Harbingers of gathering storm clouds are all around us. There are no words of wisdom, in the mass-media anymore. The modern graven images and golden calves of the mass-media are worshipped like idols today- and its getting far worse far more quickly.
We are now in the post- truth era!
The idols of error, sin, wickedness and all sorts of garbage promoted and loved by the mass-media has infiltrated into the church because spineless, blind pastors, bankrupt in spiritual weapons and gifts, have simply stood back and invited the devil in, disguised, right into the pulpit with them.
The condemnation on the deceivers:
Perhaps the greatest idol of the mass-media lies in their attempt to remove from you the fear of God. They proclaim and believe that we’re all in this together as humanists in a modern, post-truth era and no judgement is coming.
This is all a great deception.
Too many people love their deception. Of course they can’t see it, because deception has a powerful blinding force attached to it.
Too many hate those who bring them correction and point out their deception. They believe they’re above deception and correction.
Galatians 4:16 “Have I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?”
If you don’t know it, let me inform you that deception, evil, and sin has a strange beauty, appeal and attraction to them, but once you’re hooked – the beauty turns to horror and you get trapped.
The consistent, concerted cry of the media, all in agreement with each other, of necessity changes God’s word and removes God’s judgement. They set themselves up as people-leaders, and their influence sets the course of the world.
If you remove God’s judgment from His word, you have a happy all loving (in your interpretation of love) God of compromise, who is with you on the wide road of anything goes. You have nothing to fear! – You fool!
The Bibles speaks of the “goodness and severity of God”. With “severity” removed, there is nothing to fear.
Without the active fear of God in your life – you are on thin ice!
They think they are God’s editors.
The curse of social media:
The social media reveals exactly what happens when God is removed from society. Under the guise of anonymity, with no restraint within them, and no accountability to anyone including God, we have seen how values, virtues and morals are corrupted and destroyed.
The flood of fake-news websites has become pandemic. It influences, I would say, more than half the people on the various forums on the internet. It has become an open war on truth. It is a perfect example of the abuse and misuse of freedom and liberty by pure deceivers.
Freedom is not freedom if it abuses itself and allows itself to be destroyed.
Isaiah 59:13-14 “In transgressing and lying against the Lord, and departing from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood, justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off; for truth has fallen in the street and equity cannot enter. So truth fails, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey.”
God’s judgment is coming upon all these things. So what does the mass media do? Well they get rid of God’s judgment and say: “If there is a God, He is a God of love and accepts whatever we say He must accept.”
Hebrews 10:31 “It’s a fearful, terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”
2 Corinthians 5:11 “Knowing the terror of the Lord...”
People today including most Christians have no fear of the Lord. This is a great idol of the mass-media – a God who does not judge.
That’s in fact one of the reasons why they reject the end-time messages of the Bible. Eschatology reveals that God is a very fearful judge!
The media has proven themselves to be hopelessly biased. Their bias makes them betrayers of truth. They have betrayed your trust. They are betraying you now. They are telling you Satan’s “truth”. They are trying to make themselves your master.
They are trying to maintain their non-existent authority over you.
Be very sure of one thing, the mass-media puppets of their master will never escape the judgement of God that is coming upon them.
What a terrible indictment the following three verses are on the mass-media and the YouTube Jezebels, manipulators, liars, and deceivers.
***Jeremiah 8:8-9 “How can you say, ‘we are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us’? ‘Look, the false pen of the scribe certainly works falsehood. The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken. Behold, they have rejected the word of the Lord; so what wisdom do they have?’”
Do you see what this verse above is saying? It is saying that the messengers of falsehood, who reject biblical truth, are fools! And the world elevates them and puts them on a pedestal!
***Jeremiah 7:28 “This is the nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God, nor receive correction. Truth has perished and has been cut off from their mouth.”
***Exodus 23:1-2“You shall not circulate a false report. Do not put your hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness. You shall not follow the crowd to do evil...”
►“You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32)
►You shall know the “truth” of the mass-media and be deceived and imprisoned.
Having said this, there are many wonderful, very good messages and ministries using YouTube social media and the Internet. It remains a powerful far reaching tool, if used correctly. If you look up at the “Visitor Map” at the top of this website, you can see that The Prophetic Scroll is now in every nation of the world in over 80 languages, with over 31 million regular viewers. (Available on my internal statistics generator.)
That would all be impossible without the Internet.
The incurable curses upon the mass-media:
The mass-media will be the ring-leader of the soon coming tribulation period. They will be hugely responsible for many people landing in the tribulation, who otherwise would not have. The world won’t suddenly have another voice in the tribulation.
The media will be right there as the ●wrath of man, ● the wrath of the Lamb, ● the wrath of nature, and ●the wrath of God are all poured out in seven years, which will see upwards of four billion people killed.
Individuals within the mass-media can come out and get saved, but they will have an enormous amount of forsaking to do if they want to get into God’s ways.
Most, especially today, are controlled and dominated by powerful Jezebel spirits and spirits of control. They are fully cursed.
Those of the mass-media who do not repent and come out of their idolatry will have a special severe place in hell.
Zephaniah 1:17 “I will bring distress upon men, and they shall walk like blind men, because they sinned against the Lord; their blood shall be poured out like dust, and their flesh like refuse.”
The mass-media want to be your discernment and want you to give over your gift of discernment to them. These are normally Jezebels, controllers, and people with seriously disturbed character traits. If you can see the devil lurking behind the mass-media in all its forms, you have gone a long way, and are well on the road to safety in these days.
Beware of any form of ministry that comes with sensationalism, manipulation, sales gimmicks, eye-catching claims, and the like. Things like, “you have to see this,” “It’s 100% for sure,” God told me in an audible voice”, “this will change you forever,” “Are you serious” and the like. This is all cheap manipulation to get you to “buy” into them.
The role of godly media is to use information and instruction wisely under the leading of the Holy Spirit. It is to create awareness, offer counsel, teaching, enlightenment, illumination, and guidance. It is to warn, rebuke correct and encourage.
It is to reflect the living God and His words and ways.
●John 14:29 “Now I have told you before it comes, that when it does come to pass you may believe.”
My friends, the media plays a far greater role in your life than you imagine. Be discerning, be selective, judge rightly, keep your spiritual armour in place and above all grow in your knowledge of God and His word, by His Spirit.
Global, worldly morality has as its idol the rights of the modern, new human. Its evil virtues and values are founded, written, spoken and inspired by the unholy mass-media. The media is the “Bible” of the globalist. It speaks its moral sin to its subjects, who impute authority to it.
They defend it and justify it all – all the time.
●Often to fight evil is more difficult than walking in truth. It’s easy to go with the flow and sometimes difficult to stand against the flow...but we must.
I took this picture on the banks of the Chobe River, Botswana.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
