- 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 351: 15th February 2017
Rapture, Rams, Shofars and more:
Rapture, Rams, Shofars and more:
I have written about the Feast of Trumpets many times, but this is mostly new.
The Feast of Trumpets is perhaps the most wonderful of the seven feasts. It has so many meanings, applications, symbols, signs and idioms in and around it. It is richer with typology than any of the others. Some meanings are hidden and some are found only in ancient Hebrew tradition, being largely lost in today’s practices.
In this edition I will look at a few of these incredible signs. There are many more which I haven’t shared yet and will sometime soon.
People say that all seven of the Feasts of the Lord have been fulfilled and have no applications for the church today – Wrong!
The prophetic aspect of the feasts are still on the go right now and will be completely fulfilled in the Feast of Trumpets, the Feast of Yom Kippur and the Feast of Tabernacles at the Second Coming and into the Millennium.
The traditional, anti-Israel view is that all the feasts have been fulfilled. There is nothing left to be fulfilled because Israel is now the church. This view is founded in the Babylonian-influenced churches
The next Feast of Trumpets / Rosh Hashanah occurs on the 21st and 22nd of September.
Is Rosh Hashanah for the church or Jews or both?
Personally, I believe that the rapture will happen on one of the two days of the Feast of Rosh Hashanah / Feast of Trumpets, as do many others.
Some say or ask, why the rapture would happen on a Jewish feast day when the church is Gentile and not Jewish.
The question alone offers an incredible insight into the success of Satan in re-characterising the church through the Catholic rejection of the feasts and other Hebraic traditions.
We must see biblical things “rightly divided” in dispensational terms, which are part of the Bible’s own revealed method of division. Some things apply to Israel and some things to the church and some things to both. You need the Holy Spirit to lead you.
Everything that is in and of the Old Covenant has some sort of prophetic application to the New. Besides that, Jewish time in dispensational terms is not complete yet.
The next great (very, very great) biblical, prophetic event on the horizon is the great dispensation change closing the church age and sending the world into the seven year tribulation, which is in fact another dispensation completely.
The feasts that have been fulfilled were done so in order. The remaining ones will also be fulfilled in the continuing order. Remember that the feasts prophetically, plot the course of the ages.
One of the feasts would most certainly be assigned in fulfilment to this huge milestone and world-changing event, the start of the tribulation. Because the Feast of Trumpets is next, it is therefore this feast that will mark this massive dispensational change.
As we go on, you will see exactly why this feast fits the bill so perfectly.
But let’s presume the original question is legitimate and say that the feasts have no application for the church. That would mean the Feast of Trumpets will find its fulfilment in the start of the tribulation period, which is for the Jews.
Good point – that’s true! But hang on right there. If we believe in a pre-tribulation rapture, that means that the rapture would take place right here at the start of the tribulation for the Jews! So there you have it – rapture covered, either way!
Miracles of Rosh Hashanah, also called The Feast of Trumpets:
Some of the names of this feast are: ●Rosh Hashanah, or the head of the year. ●Yom Teruah, or the day of trumpet blowing. It is called: ●Zicharon Teruah, the day of the shout for joy. It is called: ●Yom Hazicharon, the day of remembrance of sins. It is called: ●Yom Hadin, The day of judgement.
Rosh Hashanah also speaks of: ●The return of the King. ●The coronation of the King. ●The call of alarm, judgement, tears, sacrifice, and introspection.
Some of the many associations of the Feast of Trumpets:
●It represents the birthday of the world at the day of the creation of the world.
●It also represents the birthday of Adam and sin!
●Also born on this day were Yeshua, Cain, Abel, Abraham, Elisha and Joshua.
●Cain killed Able on this day.
●Rachel conceived Joseph on Rosh Hashanah. Leah conceived on this day.
●The dry land appeared after the flood of Noah on this day.
●Isaac was offered up on this day.
●The First Temple was dedicated on this day.
Rosh Hashanah is the feast at which the shofar is blown. No other form of trumpet is to be used. But here is the amazing thing:
The word Shofar comes from a root word meaning beauty. The sound can be made to sound like a deep sobbing – relating to repentance. It can also be made to sound like an alarm of judgement. It can be made to sound triumphant as in joyous victory.
The Hebrew meaning of Shofar also means “incising” or cutting deeply.
The shofar is blown with 100 blasts on each of the two days of the feast.
When the shofar is blown, the people tremble. (Amos 3:6)
The shofar is also associated with calling the dead from the grave.
The shofar is associated with spiritual warfare (Number 10:9).
Within the 100 blasts are nine required staccato blasts of the shofar known as the Teruah. Their purpose is to “awaken the soul.” Interestingly the word “Teruah” means to shout and nine is the number of finality.
A ram has two horns!
Even the shape of the ram’s horn shofar is important. It is to be curved, representing bending over in humility or bowing. The bend in the shofar is believed in ancient tradition to represent the transfer between this world and the next.
►The Feast of Trumpets is associated with Abraham placing Isaac upon a rock to sacrifice him, before the angel stopped him and pointed to the scapegoat. That rock is currently under the Muslim golden Dome of the Rock on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
►The Torah reading for Rosh Hashanah is Genesis 22 where Abraham takes Isaac to sacrifice him and the ram gets its horn caught in the thorns representing the sins of the people. Remember that when Adam sinned the earth sprang forth with thorns symbolising the curse going through to nature itself and the whole world.
Tradition claims that the ram caught in the thorns was trapped by the curve in its horn, but it was only the left horn, with the right horn being free.
At the Feast of Trumpets two ram’s horns are to be blown. Both must come from the same animal.
The left-hand horn / shofar which was caught in the thorns, representing the sin of the world, was to be blown first. This first sounding symbolises judgement on sin. This symbolises the start of the tribulation period of God’s judgement upon the world. This shofar is called “The first trump.”
The right-hand horn / shofar is then sounded. The blasts are celebratory and symbolise victory and deliverance. This symbolises the rapture of the church. This is called “The last Trump.”
The first trump is a symbol of the final regathering to Messiah of the Jews and their judgement. The last trump is a symbol of the rapture and the resurrection of the dead.
By the way, a shofar trumpet is also used at the Feast of Pentecost. This is also known as the “first trump”. This tradition came about due to the fact that the original Pentecost was the day Moses came down from Sinai with the law of God in stone. That day became the original birthday of Israel.
For the church, our Pentecost, being the day the law was implanted in our hearts, was the birthday of the new dispensation, which began at the “first trump.”
So we have a “first trump” blown at the birth of the church. Would it be surprising that the “last trump” will be at the end of the church age?
So we are very likely to see the tribulation period begin on the Feast of Trumpets, which means that the rapture would also occur then.
I reject the new popular teaching that there will be a long gap between the close of the church age and the start of the tribulation. It is hogwash.
Now let’s move over to the New Covenant and one of the rapture letters of Paul.
1 Corinthians 15:51-52 “Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep (die), but we shall all be changed – in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”
Most who believe in a post-tribulation rapture use this verse, saying that Paul was referring here to the “last trumpet” in the book of Revelation, which closes the tribulation period or dispensation. They say that this is where the rapture takes place because that’s where the “last trumpet” is.
They are wrong.
►Paul could not have been referring to anything from the Revelation, because it was only written some 60 years after Paul! Again, Paul could not have been referring to this trumpet because it is not a shofar! A shofar is very specifically called for at the Feasts of Trumpets.
Paul had to have been referring to the “last trumpet” a shofar, of the Feast of Trumpets. The Greek word used in the verse above is “salpigx”, which the equivalent of the shofar in Hebrew.
But here’s the amazing thing: Paul is giving us a clue as to when the rapture will take place. There is absolutely no doubt in anyone’s mind that 1 Corinthians 15:51-52 are rapture verses, unless you’re stark raving mad!
►So, if these are rapture verses, and Paul says it will be at the “last trumpet” and he was referring to the Feast of Trumpets, guess when the rapture will take place?
Again bear in mind that the “last trump” of the Feast of Trumpets is the right hand horn / shofar, which is blown on the second day of the feast and it symbolises victory, release, joy.
It looks to me like the odds are stacked up for a “Trumpets” rapture!
The Temple and Trumpets:
Tradition claims that the shofar blasts are also a remembrance of the destruction of the Temple, causing the fear of God to arise. Numerous verses predict a rebuilt temple in the tribulation period.
The shofar blasts look back to the previous temples and forward to the next.
As we have seen, the Feast of Trumpets is associated with Abraham placing Isaac upon a rock to sacrifice him, before the angel stopped him and pointed to the scapegoat. Remember, that this particular rock is under the Muslim golden Dome of the Rock on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
The Dome is the imposter and will soon be destroyed in judgement, making way for the Third Temple.
The Dome of the Rock and the other Mosques on the Temple Mount have now gained a false legitimacy, while even the idea of the Third Jewish Temple, still to come, is scorned by the world today.
It would not be at all surprising that the new Third Temple on the original site would have some relation to the Feast of Trumpets. Isaac’s rock is speaking!
Israel, Jerusalem, the Temple Mount and the Jews have all become the modern scapegoat. Actually, it’s Bible prophecy that has become the scapegoat. Actually it’s truth itself that is the new scapegoat, allowing evil to flourish and ultimately Satan and the antichrist to walk onto the stage as God.
But, beware, the ultimate scapegoat is Yeshua, our Lord and Saviour, and although slain, He rose again in glory and power and is coming back not as a Goat or a Lamb but as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, to devour all that is illegitimate and cross-less in the world.
Dome of the Rock – your days are numbered as are all the enemies of the Jews.
Bible doctrines are cast in stone; many other biblical things can be a matter of interpretation. But there are some biblical things that are more-sure than anything.
The seven feasts will all find their complete fulfilment in huge events soon to play out. It is impossible that they won’t. It is also impossible that they won’t continue to be fulfilled until their prophetic completion, in order.
It is impossible that the next in line for fulfilment, Trumpets, will not find fulfilment in some major prophetic event. All of the characteristics of this feast point to the dispensation change beginning the tribulation, which would then also see the rapture.
We know when the next Feast of Trumpets is and the next and the next, just by looking at the Hebrew calendar.
Is this coming one it? It may be. It looks very much like it so far. This is what we don’t know for sure. It may be Trumpets of 2018. I hope not. If it is, we will wait with anticipation. But be sure that the tribulation / rapture is very close at hand.
As I have said many times and will continue to do; be careful putting all your eggs of hope in one basket. We must have all the signs of prophecy lined up like ducks in a row. Then we will have it. If not, it doesn’t matter what signs there are in the sky or in the feasts – its back to the drawing board.
What signs are in place and what signs are still to appear:
Signs largely in place:
●The gospel preached in all the world, (Mark 13:10)
●Exploding knowledge, travel, technology, is fulfilled, but ongoing (Daniel 12:4).
●Israel is back in the land as a nation since 1948 and Jerusalem restored to the Jews in 1967 (Isaiah 66:8, 11:10-12, Jeremiah 30:3-4, Zechariah 10:10 and many more). The regathering is not complete.
●Israel springs forth with natural abundance (Isaiah 35:1, Ezekiel 36:11, Isaiah 41:18-20, Isaiah 27:6).
●The love of many believers grows cold. (1Timothy 4:1).
●World moral decay, including arising violence, terror, and aggressive homosexuality as in the days of Noah and Lot (Genesis 6:4-11, Matthew 24:37, Luke 17:26)
Signs still to come:
●A global currency, world government and control system (the mark of the beast) headquartered in a revised Roman Empire (EU) with an Eastern leg and a Western leg. (Revelation 13:7).
●Signs appearing in the sun, moon and stars. (Luke 21:25, Revelation 12).
●The veil of spiritual blindness on the Jews to their Messiah must lift more speedily. (Matthew 23:39, Romans 11:25, Acts 15:14-16.)
●The building of the Third Temple on the Temple Mount is required by prophecy at the midway point in the tribulation, so it will need to be built early in the first half. (Isaiah 66:9 and many more.)
●The dividing of the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem. (Joel 3:2, Zechariah 12:3) This is partially done even now, but is far from the completed end-time prophetic requirement.
●A peace treaty or covenant between Israel and “the many” must occur on day one. (Daniel 9:27, 1 Thessalonians 5:3)
Some of these signs do not need to be in place before the rapture and start of the tribulation, but they need to appear very soon afterwards. We will see signs of the signs coming beforehand.
Will we see the rapture coming?
We know that Elijah was raptured alive into heaven. Here is the story:
2 Kings 2:2-3 “Then Elisha said to Elijah, ‘stay here, please, for the Lord has sent me on to Bethel.’ But Elisha said, ‘As the Lord lives, and as your soul lives, I will not leave you’! So they went down to Bethel. And the sons of the prophets who were at Bethel came out to Elisha and said to him, ‘Do you know that the Lord will take away your master from over you today?’ And he said, ‘yes I know; keep silent!’”
2 Kings 2:11 “Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.”
Do you see it? Elisha knew beforehand that the Lord was about to take Elijah in rapture.
I pretty much doubt that either of them had any idea, weeks, months or years beforehand. But Elisha knew that day.
Does this mean that as the time for our rapture draws near we will gain more knowledge of it and know very soon beforehand? I would say that’s a very real possibility. It already looks that way as more and more revelation is revealed to the Lord’s prophets and watchmen.
At the same time, more and more false prophets and deceivers are appearing as well, serving their god of confusion well.
Did Noah know the time of the coming judgement by flood, a type of the tribulation?
Hebrews 11:7 “By faith Noah being warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear and prepared an ark...”
It seems he did know. The Bible also gives the time pretty clearly. (Genesis 7:6, 11-13).
Does this mean that we can know when the tribulation will start and when the rapture will be? Yes! I believe that as the time approaches the Spirit of God will reveal more and more to us.
Those who continue to argue that “no one knows the time, or the day and hour”, don’t have the foggiest idea what they are talking about. Sometime soon, I’ll explain it with biblical exegesis and you will be shocked. Here’s a hint: It’s got nothing to do with time.
My Jewish and Christian friends, we are in a time of fast-approaching prophetic fulfilment. It’s all looming, gathering and threatening. The world and its god are on a collision course with the living God.
The left-hand shofar of judgement is about to sound. The right-hand shofar, the last trump, of victory and rapture will sound soon.
There are messages in the stars, in the air and in the book. They are there for all to see. Are you ready for eternity in your new glorified, heavenly, eternally beautiful bodies?
I took the background picture from a chopper in the Mweni cutback in the Drakensberg Mountains. “Mweni” is Zulu for “The place of the needles.” I also took the picture of the Black Ibis flying off into the sunset and combined the two for fun.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
