|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.
19th April 2019
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 408: March 13th 2018
The rapture, tribulation and dates:
We all know about the recent date-setting fiasco. That does not mean that dates are not significant in prophecy. That was all Satan’s attempt to distract from and derail interest in prophecy. The faith of many was rocked and shaken by the interpretive failures which caused many to give up. Some say we should now ignore the subject
I disagree! This edition is a fresh look at our glorious hope, dates, possibilities, probabilities, what to avoid like the plague, and what to dive right into. Please note carefully what I am saying and what I am not saying relating to dates.
In giving us glimpses into the prophetic future, God’s word gives us numerous indications in parables, dates, numbers, types and shadows, archaeology and much more.
Importance of Bible prophecy:
There is tremendous authority and importance in the prophetic word. (Matthew 26:56)
Deuteronomy 18:18-19 “I will raise up for you a Prophet (Yeshua) like you (Moses)...”It shall be that whoever shall not hear My words which He speaks in My name, I will require it of him.”
According to the verse above it is a very serious, and for most, tragic thing, if they will not hear the prophetic word of our Lord! Do you see how important it is?
Words spoken (and written) in the Spirit never die. They will live forever as you will with your words.
A most important prophetic insight:
The Torah is the Hebrew name for the first five books of the Bible. In Hebrew it does not contain chapter headings and breaks. It is continuous with each verse being numbered consecutively from beginning to end.
So, a Hebrew verse number has a corresponding chapter and verse number in the English Bible.
We know also that the Hebrew calendar is different to ours. We are now in 2018, which is 5778 on the Hebrew calendar.
Some scholars have noted that there a link between the Torah verse number and the Hebrew year.
Here are some incredible examples:
●The year 1938 was the beginning of the Holocaust during WW11. (The war itself began earlier.)This was the Hebrew year 5698. The 5698th verse in the Torah is this:
Deuteronomy 29:24 “All nations would say, ‘Why has the Lord done so to this land? What does the heat of this great anger mean?”
The previous verse speaks of the land burning, and the following verse gives the reason: It is because they have forsaken the covenant of the Lord God of their fathers, which He made with them when He brought them out of the land of Egypt.
●The year of Israel’s independence, May 1948 was the Hebrew year 5708. The 5708th verse in the Torah is:
Deuteronomy 30:5 “The Lord your God will bring you to the land which your fathers possessed and you shall possess it. He will prosper you and multiply you more than your fathers.”
●The year of Jerusalem’s recapture in the Six-Day War was 1967. It is the Hebrew year 5727. The 5727th verse in the Torah is:
Deuteronomy 31:3 “The Lord your God Himself crosses over before you; He will destroy these nations from before you, and shall dispossess them. Joshua himself crosses over before you just as the Lord has said.”
The three examples above are pretty amazing. They do set a precedent for looking further into this. But be warned; do not take these things too far.
Now we come to the present time. What does the year-verse principle tell us about 2018?
●The year 2018 is the Hebrew year 5778. The 5778th verse in the Torah is:
Deuteronomy 32:19 “When the Lord saw it (Israel’s unfaithfulness), He spurned them, because of the provocation of His sons and daughters. He said I will hide My face from them.”
But this verse is in the middle of a discourse, so we need to see it all together. The previous verse condemns the Jews because they have “forgotten God and the Rock that begat them. The following verse is incredible. Technically, it relates to the next Hebrew year which begins in September this year, so it is actually part of 2018 as well.
“But I will provoke them to jealously by those who are not a nation. I will move them to anger by a foolish nation.”
Who is the nation that is not a nation? It can only be the mostly Gentile church. What is it that suddenly makes the Jews jealous and angry at the same time? The Bible does not say, but the most logical explanation would be the rapture of the church.
There is a long-held tradition that Jews call Gentiles a “foolish nation” or “no nation,” because they were left out of the original calling of God.
The Jews believe that they are the chosen people, and rightly so, but can you imagine how jealous and angry they would be if God took the church in rapture and they were left behind?
So here we have a very possible and probable description of the rapture of the church, before the tribulation period begins...and we have a possible date or year at least!
Does this mean that the rapture and tribulation start will be in 2018? It most certain could and probably will. BUT the other ducks must be in line as well. At this stage they are lining up fast, but we’re not there yet. It could all happen quickly – come on ducks, make a move.
The verses following Deuteronomy 32:19 describe the tribulation. Here are some descriptions from verses: 22 to 29.
Fire is kindled in My anger, disasters will heap-up on them. Arrows will be upon them. They shall waste in hunger with pestilence and bitter destruction. The teeth of the beasts will be against them. The sword shall destroy with terror. They will be dashed in pieces. Oh that they would consider their latter end!
Romans 10:19 speaks of the Jews being provoked to jealousy by a nation that is not a nation and made angry by them. This verse is a quote from Deuteronomy 32:19 (above). The significance is that the discourse of the 5778th verse in the Torah, corresponds to the year 2018.
It is extremely significant that this verse is brought over into Romans and the discourse of the return and salvation of the Jews.
Here are a few more interesting things:
2018 BC was the year God made the first covenant with Abraham for the people. This was 70 years after Abraham’s birth in 1948 BC.
Psalm 90:10 “The days of our lives are seventy years, and if by reason of strength they are eighty years.”
This “seventy years” could also be applied to Israel. The year 5778 marks the 70th year from the rebirth of Israel. Could this have significance for Israel’s prophetic future? Yes sir!
Bear in mind that God does things “decently and in order.” (1 Corinthians 14:40)
Now we come to the end of the Hebrew year 5778 (Tishrei 1) or September 10th on our calendar.
Interestingly, the Torah reading (in their synagogues) for that day is:
Genesis 21:10 “Cast out the bondwoman and her son, for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, Isaac. (Jews)”
This verse above, relates to the Arabs, and thus the Palestinians today. This and other verses speak of the final destruction of the Palestinian efforts to take over Israel and Jerusalem. It will be Israel that “casts out the bondwoman.”
So as we look at these dates and factors above, it does look like we could be on the verge of major prophetic developments. If all the other biblically required things fall into place as well, we are ready to go. But be warned, I’m not setting this as the for-sure date. A lot must still fall into place. We will watch and pray.
Absolutely forget about looking for signs in the sky. Run away from that garbage. It is irrelevant, a waste of time, a distraction and a deception. The signs in the sky in the Bible occurred at the crucifixion and will again occur at the Second Coming. Don’t send me emails on this – simply read all the verses.
Oh, and of course you have to read them in dispensational context!
Jordan is the centre of the Hashemite kingdom which includes Syria and Iraq as well. The capital is Amman (Ammon in Bible times) The Hashemites are a brand of Muslims.
Jordan has a peace-treaty with Israel, which has lasted since 1994 and been reasonable successful.
The peace-treaty is now in peril as a new “Arab Spring” sweeps Jordan. Militants have one thing in mind and that is to break and nullify the peace-treaty, and set Jordan in place as an aggressive Muslim nation towards Israel.
Numerous large marches and demonstrations have been taking place in Jordan recently, calling for the overthrow of the present government and the nullifying of the peace-treaty.
We all know the famous prophecy of Isaiah 17 in which the city of Damascus, Syria is totally destroyed in one day. But this same event is also spoken of in Jeremiah 49, Amos 1, Zephaniah 2, and implied in other passages.
When we put them all together we see that cities within a radius of 200 miles or so, of Damascus are also destroyed. Amman, Jordan is one of them!
This destruction event is caused by Israel, in retaliation for attacks on her. So, right now it looks like these ducks are starting to line up for their fateful prophetic role.
The importance of blessing Israel:
Numbers 23:20 “Behold, I have received a command to bless (Israel), He has blessed and I cannot reverse it.”
The verse above is part of the discourse in which Balaam was hired to curse Israel. Note that you cannot reverse God’s blessing on Israel. Those who do try are cursed by God!
Today the UN is a cursed organisation. The Palestinians are a cursed people. Many nations are under the curse of God. (Including Canada under Trudeau) and of course many individuals are cursed by God. All the churches of replacement theology have the curse of God flowing in them.
So who do you think you are Joel Joseph, calling these nations and churches cursed? Read on.
It’s all about Israel’s right to their God-given land, city and existence in peace.
Jeremiah 31:10 “Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, ‘He who scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him as a shepherd does his flock.’”
Isaiah 40:1 “Comfort, yes comfort My people, says the Lord. Speak comfort to Jerusalem and cry out to her, that her warfare has ended, that her iniquity is pardoned, for she has received from the Lord’s hand double for all her sins.”
Who are they that are to “comfort My people”? Obviously it’s not My people comforting themselves. It can only be another group with a godly side to them. It’s you – the church!
Now let’s have a look at some godly wisdom for you:
Numbers 24:9 “Blessed is he who blesses you (Israel), and cursed is he who curses you.”
Genesis 12:3 “I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you.”
Psalm 122:6 “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May they prosper who love you.”
Can you imagine the Palestinians obeying these verses? Can you see why they are cursed?
The principle works for nations, businesses, families, and individuals.
Beloved brethren, there are powerful spiritual forces at work in these things. Take heed! God will allow certain Christians to be overcome by Satan on these issues.
At this time the spirit of antichrist is at work trying to derail the church and get rid of Israel. Most are not aware that he will arise in association with the church in some way. (1 John 2:18-19, 4:2-3)
The antichrist spirit has been working for a long time through spirit-less, deceived churches to destroy God’s plan for the Jews, and the Jews have taken note. These churches have been the very reason for the Jews staying away from the church!
The spirit of antichrist comes with a false, beguiling, seducing authority. He wants recognition, acceptance and worship and he finds it amongst defenceless, ignorant, worldly Christians.
Deuteronomy 27:18 “Cursed is he who makes the blind to wander out of the way of God.”
The Jews are the spiritually blind until the veil of blindness is lifted, but there is still a huge responsibility on the church for causing, or adding to their isolation. They are cursed!
But the Jews are not totally innocent.
There is a very dangerous belief among the Jews today, that the one who gives them their new temple will be their Messiah. Wrong, wrong, wrong! That will be the antichrist!
The churches that come against Israel in these days will land up in the tribulation period – guaranteed! Do you think not? I suggest you read the seven letters from God to the churches in the early chapters of the Revelation. (Revelation 2:22, Revelation 3:16)
Because of all these things we need to watch diligently and take heed of coming events.
Isaiah 62:6 “I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem, who shall never hold their peace day or night. You who make mention of the Lord, do not keep silent and give Him no rest till He makes Jerusalem a praise in all the earth.”
The verse above is profound indeed:
God says, “I have posted watchmen on your walls.” The office of the watchman is a specific, honourable, responsible, high calling of God. Please note that the true watchmen are called of God! They will be characterised by success in their watching and analysis, because it will be of God.
They will often be at odds with and hated by the world and many churches. They will be rejected by self-appointed watchmen. There is a time coming soon when the God-called watchmen will “see eye to eye”. (Isaiah 52:8)
Watchmen who continuously fail in their watching analysis are not of God. They are self-appointed counterfeits and should be rejected. They have no authority, except that of the spirit of error.
This is no light issue. Today there are dozens of so-called watchmen out there, repeatedly failing in their predictions and analysis. There are some on YouTube with a 100% failure rate. There are some who are full of pride, operating under the spirit of legalism which is witchcraft.
There are some presenting huge false doctrines leading the masses astray.
If you are not diligent and do not take heed, you will be beguiled, deceived and swallowed by protagonists of satanic hogwash.
Death and eternity:
We all know someone who has died. One thing it does is cause people to wonder where that person who has died is now.
In reality there is no death. It is the just the word we use for transition from one realm to another.
We all live forever. That is an extremely sobering statement! Yet today people live for self and their daily pleasures, with no thought or action in preparation for eternity.
As we approach the seven-year tribulation we should be aware that around 4.2 billion people will die in this short time period. Most will die violently.
Prophecy predicts the rapture of the church before the tribulation. At that point we will be translated into new, supernatural bodies that are incorruptible and glorious – just like the body of our Lord after His resurrection.
●But the unsaved will also end up in new eternal bodies. The difference is that they will in some way be supernaturally imprisoned forever.
Let’s have a look at just a few characteristics of our eternal, soon coming state:
What is coming for the born-again believer is beyond imagination in magnificence.
Numerous verses reveal that in resurrection, our personality continues, but perfected. There is recognition of people, remembrance of things on earth, and awareness of our environment and present position. We will have full memory and all knowledge.
Philippians 3:21 “He will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body...”
1 Corinthians 15:42-44 “The body is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption. It is sown in dishonour, it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power. It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.”
So, here we have new bodies of ●incorruption, ●glory, ●power, ●spiritual, but able to transcend into the physical realms as well, as our Lord did.
1 Corinthians 15:35-38 “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, and what you sow, you do not sow the body that shall be...God gives it a body as He pleases, and to each seed its own body.”
So, we have been sown. In a sense we are in seed- form now. Are you going to become a field of weeds or wheat?
1 John 3:2-3 “...When He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him like He is, and everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself.”
If you are looking forward to the resurrection and you are not purifying yourself – you are deceived.
The climax of earthly history will be the revealing of Messiah to the Jews. We are not far from it. The rapture will occur soon. Maybe this year! That will start the dispensation of Daniel’s seventieth week of years and the most tumultuous time the world has ever seen or ever will.
In all of this, the transition from this life to eternal life is right before us. Many will regret their wasted lives. Many will rejoice in their choice to obey God and put their lives right.
Beloved brethren, it’s all about one major thing: Is your life glorifying our Lord?
I took the background picture of the baobab trees at Kubu Island and the saddle billed stork in the Okavango Delta – Botswana.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
