18th September 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Watch the watchmen:
But first: Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s prayer meeting, “The Return” will be held on the Washington Mall, Washington DC, on the 26th September. This day is known as Shabbat Shuvah. Interestingly the Bible reading for the day is, “Return O Israel, to the Lord your God.”(Hosea 14:2-10 Micah 7: 18-20 Joel 2:15-27) It’s all centred on a global call for the church to return to the ways of God, and for Israel’s return to Messiah.
Today is the beginning of Rosh Hashanah / Feast of Trumpets, depending on the sighting of the new moon. ●This is NOT the rapture time and start of the tribulation.
The current peace efforts between Israel and some Arab nations is NOT the final antichrist peace deal - not by any means. What they are is incremental peace efforts.
This is NOT the “peace and safety, then sudden destruction” verse coming about. That verse relates to the Daniel 9:27 peace deal and the tribulation.
But these things collectively are important in that they present a new dawn for the Middle East. The knock-on effects and influence of these peace efforts are causing others to want to jump on the band wagon too.
Because these are such critical and dangerous times, this is a more important time than ever to be led correctly by men of God who are led by the Spirit and have a history of accuracy and stability. There are many amongst the riff raff.
So many wannabe watchmen and teachers are leading people astray with inaccurate, wrong pronouncements. Some are so outrageous! A watchman of the Lord is not one who watches for possibilities. He knows where to look and what to watch for and is led by the Spirit of God, therefore he is right.
I was given some “100% for sure” information in charts and numbers and various things as to why this would be the rapture time – for sure 100%! It didn’t sit right. When checking it out myself nothing added up!
Because a blind, always-wrong watchman says something is a sign; that does not make it so, by any means.
Being wrong destroys your authority and credibility, and damages the prophetic word and the faith of others, especially new believers.
Being wrong on major biblical things means one thing for sure – absolutely: You have not heard from God and you speak your own opinions.
The Spirit led teacher / watchman will have a history of godly stability and is therefore trustworthy.
Discernment is more critical than ever in the face of fast growing deception.
Ezra 3:13 (Temple rebuilt) “The people could not discern the noise of the shout of joy from the noise of the weeping of the people...”
Error becomes an immovable mountain if not dealt with, because it is formed and secured on the pillar of pride.
Spirit led, and inspired knowledge, understanding and wisdom endures and produces godly fruit.
One way to know a false teacher: When brought to correction, they will turn on you because you won’t join them in propping up their pride!
The Spirit of God in your heart is the umpire. He brings peace when you are on the right track. But you need the baptism of the Spirit. If not your umpire is you, yourself.
The condition of the end-time church:
There is a powerful prophetic message for the end-time church hidden in the messages to the seven churches in Revelation 2 & 3. They were seven historic churches. All seven contain truth for us, but prophetically, they also plot the course of church history.
The first three churches, Ephesus, Smyrna and Pergamos speak of the times gone by. The last four plot the course of the end time church and run concurrently. They are Thyatira, representing the Catholic and other orthodox churches. (They are cast into the tribulation) Sardis is the church that has a “name to live but is dead”. They are told that Lord will come upon them as a thief and they won’t know when! This represents the denominational Spirit-less churches. (With a few exceptions) Then comes the glorious church – the church of Philadelphia. They have the key of David, opening the doors to the Jews. (Isaiah 22:22) This church keeps the word and is promised to be kept out of the tribulation. Finally we have the lukewarm church of Laodicea, which is spiritually blind. God “vomits them out of His mouth.” “Laodicea”: Strong’s G2993, “Laodikeia” From two root words: ‘Laos’ = people and ‘Dike’ =Ruling. This is the people ruled” or “people/self opinionated church.
The pictures below show all that remains of Laodicea today. The Spirit of God flew away from this church and God spat them out of His mouth. (Revelation 3:16) The pillars still standing represent truth, but all else is gone.
1 Timothy 3:15 (Amp) “You know how people must conduct themselves in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and stay – the prop and support of the truth.”
So, what we see here is a very powerful and accurate picture of the end-time church. Some of it is the walking dead. Some are a horror of evil. Some are cast into the tribulation, spat out and condemned. And right in the midst is the church who keeps and loves the word and is pro-Israel.
Bear in mind that there is a terrible, tragic church and a glorious, growing powerful church side by side in these days. Don’t get tunnel vision for just one side of the coin.
The Bible speaks of a great end-time revival (the latter rain) in the last days. (Joel 2:23, Hosea 6:3) and in many other verses.
A major prophetic mark of the times is increasing deception in the church. You can’t have increasing deception without increasing deceivers and that’s where the problem lies.
Satan used deception to try to stamp out the early church because he knew it would wreck his kingdom. Now we have the same scenario again. Sometimes you have to be severe in your dealings.
Acts 13:9-11 “Then Saul, also called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit looked intently at him and said, ‘O full of all deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all unrighteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord? And now indeed the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you shall be blind, not seeing the sun for a time, and immediately a dark mist fell upon him...”
It is most important to know prophetic things to come, but also the timing of those things, to avoid deception. You must see with spiritual eyes today.
A Spirit-led and inspired watchman / teacher is always restrained in what he sees and says. He is led by the restrainer.
We are now at the start of the new Hebrew year 5781. It will end and change to 5782 on Rosh Hashanah 2021. That is September 7th - 8th 2021. That’s a very important date!!
This year, 5781 is going to be year like no other. It’s going to be a wild time of stress, strain and pressure. But in the midst there will be islands of peace amongst the pillars of truth.
The good news is that we are on the verge of great revival. We are seeing it in many nations of the east. Of course there will always be churches deteriorating and dying.
Many of those who have gone off into a ditch will repent and return. Many will continue to slip and slide further away.
As we enter the beginning of these wild times, I want to assure you that The Prophetic Scroll will be your place of spiritual stability and rest.
Edition 347: 18th January
7, 70 & 777 Unfolding!
7, 70 & 777 Unfolding
I did say that this edition would be on the “error of imminence”, but due to the urgency of the current events, this must take precedent.
The number seven is called the perfect number. It is the seal of God as found in numerous places in the Bible. It’s like the watermark of God. As always, don’t go overboard with these things. Numbers, signs and symbols should always be secondary to pure doctrine, but don’t go into the ditch on the other side of the road and throw it all out. Signs are important at the right time.
7 is important on its own. 70 is an important prophetic number as is 777. Each have their own meanings and applications.
I’ve reported before on the following, as have a number of others, but it bears repeating:
●2017 is the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, which paved the way for Israeli statehood. (100 is the number of promise.)
●2017 is the 70th anniversary of UN resolution 181 in 1947, again paving the way for Israel’s statehood in 1948. (70 is the number of the restoration of Israel, and is also seen many times in relation to punishment.)
●2017 is the 50th anniversary of Jerusalem being re-captured by the Jews in 1967. (50 is the number of the Spirit of God and Pentecost.)
►Donald Trump is the 45th US President. In Hebrew the gematria of the number is the word “Abi-albon” meaning “father of strength” (one of David’s heroes). 45 is also the biblical number of preservation. You can find more on this HERE and HERE.
►Some have pointed out the following in relation to Donald Trump: In his first day in office, he will be 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old.
2017 is the 70th jubilee since the Exodus, the 120th jubilee since Adam and the 40th jubilee since the cross. Yes, I know about the controversy of the timing of the jubilee. Some believe the last jubilee was last year, and some believe its timing is out by a year and will be over in the 2017 – 2018 time period. It’s interesting, but don’t put too much weight on the jubilees.
Numbers, glorious numbers:
Before we go further, let me explain the significance of the numbers in the rest of this article.
Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic, the original languages of the Bible, are alpha-numeric. This simply means that each letter of the alphabet has a numeric value. So you can in fact add up the numeric value of a word.
In the Bible numbers have meanings as well, which are derived from the uses of those numbers in the verses concerned.
Then when we come to Hebrew, we also have additional elements. For example the number “7” can be expressed like that or as “seven”. Then, by adding up the numeric value of each letter in “seven,” we get another meaning, which would be the gematria or the numeric value of “seven.”
On top of this, Hebrew contains pictograms within the letters and numbers. In other words each Hebrew letter looks in picture form like an object.
The picture at the top of this edition shows the number “zayin” (7), which is also a pictogram. It shows a crown on top of a sword.
God has done this. He has hidden many of these wonderful mysteries just below the surface for the diligent to dig them out.
Some of these numbers and meanings in scripture are so incredible and marvellous; they are an all out miracle, proving the veracity of the Bible.
1 Corinthians 14:40 “God does things decently and in order.”
The numbers 7, 70, and 777:
●The Hebrew number “7” is “Zayin.” The pictograph of the Zayin is remarkable. It has a crown on top of the base which looks like a sword. There is a straight line from the sword through to the crown. This is referred to as the light from God (crown) to man. So, “Zayin” represents the light of God and the sword of God towards man.
You can find more on Zayin HERE.
●The number “70” has a clear reference to Jerusalem (Jeremiah 25:11) Daniel 9:24 “Seventy weeks (of years) are determined for your people and for your holy city...”
The meanings of 70 are “completeness” and “judgement”. It is related to the punishment and restoration of Israel.
70 is also the number of nations and languages that were the origin of all nations of the world today. So, 70 is a reference to the nations of the whole world.
●777 has a number of meanings. It is associated with the genealogy of Yeshua.
The word Yeshua Messiah has the numeric value of 777.
The gematria of the words “God, heaven and earth” in the first verse of the Bible, adds up to 777.
The Hebrew sages don’t use the “thousand” part of the Hebrew year 5777. They simply say it is the year 777. So, this is the Hebrew year 5777 or simply 777 which ends on Rosh Hashanah in September.
Hebrew sages believe that this Hebrew year 5777 is the year of the sword, as mentioned above, but some of them also believe that this is the year of the “olive leaf”, believing that it is the year of the Messiah and world peace. I think all you can really say is that we are on the edge of many things playing out!
The unfolding of prophecy:
►Remarkably, the great war of Gog and Magog in Ezekiel 38 & 39, which many refer to as WW111, has the numeric value in Hebrew of 70! You can find much more on this HERE.
Do you see that the 70-nation UN meeting just ended in Paris, discussing the dividing of Jerusalem and Israel, may lead to the war of Gog and Magog very soon?
We are now just a few days beyond the “Fast of Tevet” (10th Tevet), which is a commemoration of Nebuchadnezzar’s siege of Jerusalem. This led up to the destruction of the Temple for the first time.
Bear in mind that Nebuchadnezzar was the king of Babylon. Therefore he was in fact king over the Jews for 70 years of captivity!
Ezekiel 37:27-28 “My tabernacle (temple) shall be with them (Israel); indeed I will be their God, and they shall be My people. The nations shall know that I, the Lord, sanctify Israel when My sanctuary is in their midst forever.”
Very few people understand what this verse above is actually saying! It is quite clear!!
My friends, the nations of the world, with many churches are ready to perform their fateful act of dividing Israel and Jerusalem.
Imagine being so incredibly stupid as to divide Israel for what will be very short-term, supposed gain, only to pay for your ignorance for eternity, while God’s will and ways continue “forevermore!”
Bear in mind that the Second Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed in 70 AD.
The 70-nation UN sponsored conference in Paris:
A few days ago (Friday 15th), 70 nations came together to decide what to do about ownership of Jerusalem and the age old Palestinian / Israeli conflict. The meeting ended up with no real substance to it and nothing new. It was just a bunch of taking hot-heads, seeking to delegitimize Israel and enthrone the Palestinians.
The much bigger problem though is what this meeting leads to. Firstly, it’s yet another brick in the wall of dividing Jerusalem and Israel. Their agenda is not a Palestinian state living in peace side by side with the state of Israel, but instead of Israel!
This spineless UN conference has already backfired in that the nations there have identified themselves fully with Satan and against God. And by the way, that goes for all the churches supporting the Palestinian cause above God’s.
The Paris 70-nation conference has produced a resolution that may be taken further at a later time.
But don’t jump the gun here. I’ve read the entire resolution which has been drawn up and is to be adopted. It really amounts to zero in terms of prophecy and just affirms the same old story of blaming Israel for everything.
There are no actions to be taken in the resolution. It’s just the re-affirming of the Two-State Solution and “need for a negotiated agreement” and all the same old hogwash.
But, we will watch to see what else this all leads to. One thing that is most certainly of importance is the timing of it all. If it leads to actual actions to be taken, which it may do, then it’s a different story.
Noah’s father speaks from the grave!
In the book of Genesis we see that Lamech (Noah’s father) was 777 years old when he died, which was 5 years before the flood. (Genesis 5:28-31). This can also be written then as 7775. Right now we are in the Hebrew year 5777. So here we have the number 7775 associated with the flood of Noah, which was the wrath of God on evil, and the mercy of God on Noah and his family and then the new dispensation which resulted.
The Bible says that the coming of the Son of Man will be “as in the days of Noah.” (Matthew 24:37)
7775 signalled a new dispensation. Will 5777 see a new dispensation, as in the days of Noah?
The number 7775 in Strong’s concordance is attached to the word “Shavah” which means “A cry for help.” If the world would sincerely cry for help from God now ahead of coming judgement, it would receive it, but it is crying for God to punish it in its rebellion!
The Rabbi’s believe that this year is the year of the sword, with some believing it is also the year of the olive leaf. So if we put them together, it was in fact the “sword” of God in the judgement of waters at the flood that produced the olive leaf and the new dispensation.
One thing the Rabbi’s are wrong about is that world peace, symbolised in the olive leaf, is not going to bring the Messiah onto the stage until the end of the tribulation.
Moving to divide, moving to secure:
We’re seeing some interesting moves right now!
The Vatican has recently opened an Embassy in East Jerusalem, which is the subject of disputed Palestinian territory. The Vatican has most certainly cast their lot in with the Palestinians and confirmed their enmity to God and His plans.
They are preparing for their role to divide Jerusalem!
And this applies to the other orthodox churches as well like the Anglicans.
Interestingly, Francis calls Abbas an “angel of peace.” In his explanation, just like the mass-media, he said that Abbas would be the mover and maker of peace.
In a reciprocal move, last week the Palestinians opened an Embassy right inside the Vatican. At the inauguration, the PA leader told Francis that Jerusalem is the capital of the Palestinians.
Did you know that the meaning of the word “pope” is “father” and the Bible forbids us to call anyone father! Did you know that the meaning of the word “Abbas” (PA leader) is “father?” So, here we have to fathers of error, deception working together!
So. Let’s just look at this again. These two “fathers” open Embassy’s in each other’s back yards, the one calls the other the peace making angel and the other calls out that “Jerusalem is ours”!
The Catholic church has begun its transformation into the tribulation-bound beast. No I’m not saying Francis is the antichrist beast, although I do believe he will become part of the beast trinity or at least some significant part thereof.
In case you were wondering, I have the utmost disrespect and contempt for the Catholic and other orthodox churches.
President Trump has indicated that he is going to move the US Embassy now in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem – a mighty symbol of identification with Israel’s eternal ownership of Jerusalem. He will move the US Embassy in solidarity with and to secure Jerusalem as Israeli property.
Do you see how quickly Jerusalem is becoming the centre of the world?
While the world tries to divide Israel and Jerusalem, God has brought Israel back to the land as one. Israel was divided between Judah and Israel, but in the regathering and return to the land, look what happens:
Ezekiel 37:16-17 “Son of man, take a stick for yourself and write on it: ‘For Judah and the children of Israel, his companions. Then take another stick and write on it, ‘for Joseph the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel, his companions.’ Then join them one to another for yourself into one stick, and they will become one in your hand.’”
Ezekiel 37:21-22 “Surely I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, wherever they have gone and will gather them from where they have gone to their own land; and I will make them one nation in the land...nor shall they be divided again.”
By the way, the verses above speak favourable of Israel’s “companions.” Who are they? It is the Gentiles, who are of God and His word. It is a reference to Christian Zionists.
Are you a companion of Israel and God’s will, word and ways? I hope you are, but if you are be prepared to stand as a hated minority. I know all about that first hand!
Your choice is God’s will and way, or the will, way and opinions of the scum organisation called the UN and its evil plans, and of course its spiritual leader – Satan.
What does it all mean?
●It means that God’s eternal peace treaty with Israel is under threat by Satan and his peace treaty.
●It means that Satan will soon create war so that he can make “peace” and deceive the world!
●It means we are about to see Jerusalem in conflict, the Temple rebuilt and the nations of the world becoming supernaturally charged with madness in relation to Israel like never before.
●It means the sword is about to fall.
●It means we are close to the veil of spiritual blindness lifting from the eyes of the Jews much faster.
●It means that the mass-media will become even more satanically empowered. It means that a great proportion of the church will fall for the multitude of deceptions out there.
●I expect to see things escalate quickly. Much prophecy still needs to be fulfilled, but it will happen fast now.
Any of these above-mentioned facts on their own, may not carry too much weight. But when combined and all put together in God’s giant blender – watch out.
You and I are called to be ready all the time. We are called to study to show ourselves approved unto God. We are called to keep clean from deception in all its forms. So it really doesn’t matter if all things are delayed. Be ready now and always.
You can ignore this if you want. The wise will not. This is a warning from God:
I warn you that we are now entering a time in which the spiritual conflicts and great deception around Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews will become so strong, powerful and intense that you will be sucked into an ever deepening decent, if you do not set your heart after God’s truth on these issues.
You must know, receive and believe all of God’s word on these vital issues now. This is the only way to safety.
Be warned: “God is not mocked” the world is about to learn many lessons very quickly – the hard way!
Some will not escape. They will become empowered by forces that they can’t see and didn’t even know exist.
Jeremiah 31:31-36 “Behold the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah...I will put My law in their minds, and write on their hearts; and I will be their God and they shall be My people...If those ordinances (the sun, moon, stars, roar of the seas) depart from Me says the Lord, then the seed of Israel will cease from being a nation before Me forever.”
This incredible verse above, speaks of God’s eternal will and plan for Israel. When last did your church minister preach and teach on this verse and others just like it?
If you want to mess with Jerusalem and God’s plans, you will get a lot more than your fingers burnt!
I took this picture of a magnificent kudu and a little impala in the Etosha Game Reserve, Namibia.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
