|This ministry has a distinct kingdom vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for Israel and the church. My position is pre-trib! I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share with you the great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God, to bless Israel and her people and the kingdom of God.|
►We have now reached 47 million regular visitors.
►Next Edition, Lord willing: "Meanderings and musings of my mind."
Why the pre-trib rapture is the only view that adds up and works.
- US Democratic Party diplomat calls for Nations with a Christian influence to come against Israel, saying “Jesus Christ came to save the whole world from the Jews...Jews are not chosen!”
- Report: “Obama tried to give the Golan to Syria.” But then came Trump who “gave” the Golan to Israel! And the difference is = The Bible!
- US Dems take followers further and further away from all things related to a nation under God.
- Russia warns Israel: "No more attacks on Syria or we will strike back."
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose of this report is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
War drums and trumpets:
Firstly I would like to really thank all those who have recently donated to this ministry. I must say I was amazed at the incredible response from so many. Thank you very much for your blessing to the kingdom of God, above all.
There’s a risk in giving out names that some will feel left out if I don’t name them. So please know that you are all being thanked and will be rewarded. You have encouraged me greatly with your gratitude. You are special! We go on to ever increasing glory!
I give you my assurance that I will continue to give you my best, in spite of wanting to go and live under a tree in the desert sometimes.
Please keep The Prophetic Scroll in your prayer, in that it stays open and unrestricted in these dangerous days. Also keep it as your essential go-to place for what is really happening, and for your deep spiritual growth.
The rumbling war drums:
Drum beats have many classifications. We have blues beat, disco beat, the jazz swing, the motown groove and more. But we also have a particular drum beat of war and battle. The drums of war actually originate from the repeating drum beat of the shaman or witchdoctor.
A certain drum beat would mean either dance or get ready for war. The drum beat would stimulate and strengthen the body and forge a sense of unity by the beat. They would unite the human and the spirit world. The drums of war were also referred to as the drums of death, especially when combined with trumpets.
I said all of that just for this: Can you hear the drums of war rolling? Can you hear the crescendo of drums and trumpets of great conflict echoing through the atmosphere?
This is where we are now. The drums and trumpets are only for those with ears to hear. Others would be wise to listen to those with ears to hear.
The terrible war machine of the nations is warming up to take control of the sleeping nations, who are led by the aged and wrinkled of mind, the pacifists and the true enemies of real liberty and freedom.
Russia is beating the war-drums as she threatens Israel with attack for attacking Iranian targets in Syria. Syria is beating new war drums covered with the ash of long-standing war. Iran is beating the war drum against Israel again, again, again!
Biden and his party are asleep to it all, including the blonde half-baked fairy from hell whose grand burning desire is to change the gender of kids.
It’s not just the US. Europe is worse in many areas.
It seems that insanity has suddenly been let out of the cage and is infecting the world so fast. Here is one of the succinct verses about those who have forsaken the Lord:
Deuteronomy 28:28 “The Lord will strike you with madness and blindness and confusion of mind.”
In the old days we would fight over God’s creative beauty - a girl, and the girls would fight over us – Oh the good ole-days!
The bigger wars are fought over property, religion, political systems and the like. But there is really only one war that is of importance and that is the war to eliminate God’s beautiful creative purpose for Israel. It comes in many guises, but that is the underlying reason. It’s purely spiritual. It is the devil against God, at the end of the day.
So now we sit on the brink of war – the big one! Drums are rolling, trumpets are blowing and madmen from hell are arising, struck with blinding confusion and their weapons of annihilation tucked into their big-bird, metal wings.
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall; Humpty Dumpty had a great fall, because an atom bomb blew him to smithereens. And all the king’s horses and all the king’s men took seven years to clean up the remnants of poor Humpty. What fun!
I can hear the drums of drama but I also hear the trumpet calling me to go and live under a tree in the desert! (Move over lions.)
The great war for God’s son – Israel, is prophesied. (Exodus 4:22-23) It’s all getting pretty hot in here. You need to know these things. You need to know why all things and people of God are targets.
People with no knowledge of the living God are fools, and easy to manipulate and turn into cannon fodder for every dumb gun in town.
You need to be anchored in the truth.
True living is living in truth.
If you try to befriend Satan and appease him, and walk in peace with him, you will automatically, by default, set yourself up as an enemy of God and you will pay the price!
Yes, Israel will miss it again and fall under punishment again, but the most stupid thing you can do is come against Israel in the bigger, overall picture.
Biden prepares to “kill” the Second Amendment right to bear arms in the US. Israel observes and compares this to Haman’s actions to try to destroy the Jews. Biden befriends the enemies of the west and of Israel in Yemen and Iran steps right in!
There was a time when God overlooked the ignorance of stupid, dumb politicians and people, but that day is gone (Acts 17:30, Acts 14:16)
Here’s a verse that should blow a lot more than your socks off:
Esther 9:1-2 “On the day that the enemies of the Jews had hoped to overpower them, the opposite occurred, in that the Jews themselves overpowered those who hated them...No one could withstand them because the fear of them fell upon all people.”
Take note, I say again take note, of the gravity of this verse above!!
The enemies of God and his son Israel, are united under Satan. The political parties, churches, inter-faith organisations and false religions of the world already have an unwritten unity between them – a hell bound unity!
The unity between true born-again believers is a unity based on truth and not lovey-dovey feelings.
As a believer, your culture must change! Your character and your personality must change as you grow in God. If not you will end up going with the flow of the wind.
Edition 414: April 24th 2018
What is real Messianic faith?
“Real Messianic faith” implies there is an “unreal” or “untrue” side to the story too. We will look at that as we go. I am a Messianic believer – with many qualifications of that definition.
The times are exciting, the days are evil, and the time is short. We must know where we stand. We must purify ourselves now and be ready for the incredible things that lie ahead for the world, the Jew, the Christian and our eternal state.
There is soon to be great overpowering, supernatural forces at work. Some will be captivated by the glory of the living God and some will fall apart, as they are bewitched, beguiled and controlled by the consuming forces of darkness. Anguish of soul and many sorrows will swamp many.
Many others will lament in pangs of penitence and repentance, and will find wonderful release, forgiveness and freedom in these critical days.
We need purity of faith. We need clean doctrine. We need to be right with God on all fronts. We need to be right in heart, in head and belief.
Psalm 19:9 “The fear of the Lord is clean enduring forever.”
Many people today don’t like this verse above. They love the dirt.
Job 17:9 “The righteous will hold onto his ways, and he who has clean hands will be stronger and stronger.”
Ezekiel 36:25-27 “I will sanctify My great name, which has been profaned among the nations, which you (Israel) have profaned in their midst. The nations shall know that I am the Lord, when I am hallowed in you before them. I will take you from among the nations and gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land. Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you...I will put My Spirit within you...”
Please take careful note of the extreme severity of just what it is to be wrong with God, as revealed in the rest of this edition.
The big bottom-line definition of Messianic faith:
The short and sweet, simple definition is this: The Messianic believer is one who adheres to the Abrahamic expression of faith. This is the gospel to Abraham’s children, Jacob> Israel (the Jews) > the largely Gentile church > and the Arabs who become saved.
True Abrahamic faith sees God’s work beginning with Abraham and threading through to the ancient Jews and now through to the modern Jews to the completion of the age.
Catholic Christianity, the counterfeit, and much of denominational Christianity remove and reject the modern Jews from this equation and replace them with themselves. This is the essence of replacement theology - a fully cursed practise.
The impure Christian line:
Just as there is an impure, rejected line in the diagram above, there is an impure line, a counterfeit line within the church. The divisions all began when Constantine introduced and mixed Babylonian paganism into the church in 300AD. Here it is:
The line on the right, represents the pure un-paganised truth while the messy “failure of Christianity” on the left, represent Babylon-infested Christianity.
●I must clearly state that those in both lines who are truly born-again, are saved and part of the church.
The Messianic, Abrahamic expression of faith includes all Bible prophecy rightly divided and applied to the dispensations for the Jews and the church.
What Messianic belief is not:
Legalism in any doctrinal issue makes it similar to witchcraft. You may recall that the Judaising Pharisees “sought to kill our Messiah because He worked on the Sabbath” and therefore did not keep their rules their way.
There is no difference today – the same thing applies to all legalism. Some of them today, even have the audacity to decide for God, who is saved and who is not, based on their legalist use of Hebrew names!!!
Most people under the bondage of legalism hate and resist anything that tends towards liberty. The evil spirits in them want to control you! Flee from them all!
All forms of faith that exclude God’s end-time work with and for the modern Jews is not true Messianic faith of any description.
Repentance is a wonderful, powerful thing! You can be wrong on so many things, and one simple, sincere act of repentance can fix a lifetime of wrongs, all in a flash! Likewise the failure to repent can have disastrous, eternal consequences.
Hooks, hooks and more hooks:
Do you know what a fish-hook is? I think everyone does. It is a sharp hook that acts as a lure and lodges in the jaw of the fish. The fish is then entrapped, ensnared, and caught. God has a “tackle-box” full of hooks that are eternally deadly!
If God puts a hook in your jaw – that’s it – it’s a done deal, it’s all over. And let’s remember that God is eternally just. If He puts a hook in your jaw – it was the right thing! Understand that you will not escape from God’s hook in your jaw.
God puts His hooks in the jaws of certain types of people.
Anti-Semitism in the world, and its evil twin, replacement theology in the church causes God to put His hooks in their jaws.
At some point, God inserts the hooks. I don’t know where that point is, and neither do you, but there is a point! You will then be drawn to destruction and it will be the living God doing it. That may not agree with your theology, but who cares?
Having God put hooks in your jaw is similar to the New Covenant issue with homosexuality. At some point these people are “handed over” to Satan. (Romans 1:24, 26, 28) Once you have been handed over, that’s it. It’s now too late. It’s also similar to the New Covenant situation of being “handed over to strong delusion” (2 Thessalonians 2:11) because they were sold-out on the lies of the devil.”
Hooks in the jaws of Syria and Russia:
Isaiah 30:27-28 (Judgment upon Assyria /Syria today) “The Lord comes burning with His anger and His burden is heavy; His lips are full of indignation and His tongue like a devouring fire; His breath is like an overflowing stream, which reaches up to the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of futility and there shall be a bridle (hooks) in the jaws of the people, causing them to err.”
The discourse above relates to end-time Syria, prophetically.
Note the great horror in the verse: The nations who get involved will be caused by God to err! That is the result of the immovable hooks in their jaw placed there by God. Again, that may not tally with your theology – but who cares?
We don’t know exactly what the hook-caused error of the nations will be, but according to other prophecies, it will be something that will involve mass-destruction and perhaps, together with the Ezekiel 38 / 39 WW111, Psalm 83 and others will lead into the soon coming tribulation period.
Bear in mind that in the great Ezekiel war (Ezekiel 38:4) we also see “hooks placed in the jaw” of Gog / Magog (Russia). Again, this is God who “turns them around,” drawing them into the war with hooks in the jaw.
Hooks in Egypt’s jaw – the jaws of the unsaved!
The following verses relate in type to the unsaved of the world (Egypt), but amazingly, they relate to the hopelessness and utter destruction of the world’s participants in anti-Semitism, which would also include replacement theology.
Ezekiel 29:2-12. Here are some of the salient features of this incredible discourse:
“O Pharaoh, king of Egypt and all Egypt, I (God) will put hooks in your jaws. I am against you king of Egypt, (world-system in type) O great monster who lives in the Nile River, who has said – ‘This is my river; I have made it for myself.’ But I will put hooks in your jaws and bring you up out of the rivers...and I will leave you in the wilderness; you shall fall on the open field. I have given you as food for the beasts and the birds. Then all the inhabitants of Egypt shall know that I am the Lord, because they have been a staff of reed for the house of Israel, when they took hold of you with the hand, you broke and tore their shoulders. (Anti-Semitism / replacement theology)When they (Jews) leaned on you, you broke and made all their loins shake. Therefore, I will bring the sword upon you and cut you off and the land of Egypt shall become desolate.
This speaks of demon powers arising from the waters. It speaks of demon forces of hatred for God’s ways. It speaks of the enemies of God and the Jews.
Here are some headings from the rest of this discourse: “Egypt (unsaved world in type) and her allies will fall”. “Egypt will be cut down like a great tree”. “Egypt and her friends are consigned to the pit”.
I hope you see the severity of resisting God’s end-time plans for Israel. I hope you see the doom of anti-Semitism and the destructive desolation of replacement theology!
As the world and much of the church chooses to go the way of Satan, they can’t even see invisible hooks being placed in their jaws by God.
Esau will send you to hell!
►This is all-important – it is important, important, and important again!
God has a glorious plan. If you reject His plan and choose Satan’s counterfeit plan, you are on thin ice. If you don’t get off it – your destination is hell.
The godly line is Abraham> Isaac> Jacob> Israel of old> the church> Israel now> heaven.
The counterfeit line is Abraham> Ishmael> Esau> Palestinians> Islam> hell.
Of the twin brothers, Esau and Jacob, Esau was born first, giving him the traditional birthright. This birthright included: ●The physical land of Israel. ●It even extended to lordship of other nations. ●It included direct blessing from God and ●agricultural prosperity. ●It included divine protection. ●It included the city of Jerusalem.
Once the birthright blessing had been given by the father, he could not take it back. It was legal tender – a legal covenant. (Genesis 27:28-29) Read it!
We know the story: Esau (who became the Arabs and now Palestinians by extension), sold the birthright to Jacob for a single meal. This was a legal transaction and could not be reversed.
Esau, realising his far-reaching mistake, sought to reverse the transaction. “He sought repentance, but found no place for repentance though he sought it with tears.” (Hebrews 12:17) God rejected his tearful repentance attempt!
Beloved brethren, don’t mess with God. There are some limits to repentance, as revealed here. There are seven others. There are some things that will get you hooks in your jaw!
After the sale of the birthright to Jacob, the long list of blessings now fell upon Jacob / Israel and Esau was cut off. He did receive some other blessings, but nothing that was part of the inheritance that now went to Israel – the Jews.
●What if Esau sought repentance and found it? Would that remove Jacob / Israel / Jews from the birthright covenant? No sir, it would not.
●What if Esau just ignored the sale of the birthright and claimed the entire blessing upon Jacob / Israel / Jews as his, repentance or not? Would that restore the birthright to Esau? No never!
●What if Jacob / Israel / Jews themselves gave up their legal birthright and gave it back to Esau / Arabs / Palestinians in violation of God’s covenant and will?
That would not nullify God’s covenant with Israel, from His side, but it will break it from the Jewish side. That would immediately, before the ink on the signed paper was dry, infuriate, enrage, and madden God into wild wrath in a flash – the tribulation period.
Do you see where I’m going with this? I hope you do!
Almost all the nations of the world have sided with the unjust, immoral, illegal claims of Esau, against Jacob / Israel / Jews. That’s the whole story of the Palestinians! But tragically, and very soon, Jacob / Israel / Jews will enter the fray on the side of the antichrist.
Isaiah 28:15-18 “Because you have said, ‘we (Israel) have made a covenant with death, and with Sheol (hell) we are in agreement. When the overflowing scourge (tribulation period) passes through, it will not come to us, for we have made lies our refuge and under falsehood we have hidden ourselves’... (God says :) ‘Your covenant with death shall be annulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand. When the overflowing scourge (tribulation period) passes through, then you shall be trampled down by it.’” Verse 22 “Destruction is determined, even upon the whole earth.”
This is one of the most tragic portions of scripture in the Bible (above). It brings tears to my eyes!
Here the Jews sign a covenant which they believe will bring them peace and safety. But God calls it a “covenant with death” The Jews believe that this will keep them from the tribulation. God says that He will annul and cancel this covenant with the antichrist, and the result will be them (Israel) going headlong into the tribulation, and not being spared from it!
In a sense, God will put hooks in the jaws of the Jews and draw them into the tribulation because they violated God’s covenant of life and peace with them and instead chose the covenant of death and war with the anti-Semites of the world.
This death-covenant that the Jews will sign is also revealed in Daniel 9:27. This so-called peace covenant will in fact be a satanic attempt to roll back the birthright to Esau...The Palestinians!
What incredible drama – It’s just warming up!
By the way, the Palestinians came up with the slogan: “Kill the Jews.” It is actually saying – “Kill God’s ways and let Islam live!” It is saying, “Gods promise is to Ishmael, Esau, the Palestinians, and not Isaac, Jacob, Israel, and the Jews.
Here is the shock of all shocks: God’s way will endure. In the process He will put hooks in the jaws of the anti-Semitic nations of the world. He will put hooks in the jaws of the churches of replacement theology and draw them all onto the stage of slaughter in the tribulation period.
The true church will go to eternal peace. The counterfeit church will go into the tribulation and then eternal suffering if they do not repent in the tribulation.
Do you know that there is a giant sculpture in front of the UN building of a man beating a sword into plowshares? It has this Millennium verse cast in metal, on the side:
Micah 4:3 “...They shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.”
Poor anti-Semitic UN! Poor conglomerate of fools with hooks in their jaws!
The verse that comes first is this one:
Joel 3:9-10 “Proclaim this among the nations: ‘Prepare for war! Wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near, let them come up. Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears...’”
Do you know that God will have the last laugh? But His laugh will be the echoing, reverberating, shattering shock of all shocks to the nations!
Isaiah 60:14 “Those who afflicted you (including Germany) shall come bowing to you (Israel), and those who despised you, shall fall prostrate at the soles of your feet; and they shall call you, ‘the city of the Lord, Zion the Holy One of Israel.”
Numbers 23:20 “Behold, I have received a command to bless (Israel), He has blessed and I cannot reverse it.”
►May I address the political leaders of the world? Some of you have such nice sweet, smooth cheeks. Hooks in jaws will destroy you and your looks forever – and O boy – is it coming soon?
Who will God use?
God will use big guns and big fish -hooks to get His people, the Jews back into their land – firstly in spiritual blindness, and when all are back, He will open their eyes fully.
Jeremiah 16:16 “Behold, I will send for many fishermen, says the Lord and they shall fish for them; and afterwards, I will send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them...”
The fish-hooks lure the prey, and the hunter drives the prey with guns. Both will be at work in this huge regathering of the Jews. Today there are 8.8 million Jews back in the land. There are 14 million Jews worldwide, so a lot still have to come back.
God will use Israel as His “battle-axe,” His weapon of war. He will use hooks in jaws to entrap His and Israel’s enemies.
Our Lord will use His servants who are spiritually clean for evangelism to the Jews and Gentiles. He will use Israel in the tribulation period because they will be the only nation on earth who will be spiritually clean! Isn’t that a surprise!
God will approve, commend, exalt, favour, glorify, honour and use His own.
What we see now is a great falling away of multitudes of Spirit-less, denominational-type Christians and their leaders. They do not have the power or strength to endure. Why would God use them? Quite simply – He won’t. Satan is using them.
Why would God use any church that resists His plans for Israel? He won’t. Satan is using them.
God will only use those with hooks in their jaws to draw them to destruction!
God will use His people who know, accept and proclaim Bible prophecy.
True Messianic faith is the Abrahamic expression of faith – to the Jews old and new, to the true, clean church, to the coming salvation of many Arabs, to all of Bible prophecy rightly divided and applied. True Messianic faith rejects all anti-Semitism, replacement theology and has an eye on God’s tackle-box of big hooks!
True Messianic faith is an anchor for your soul in these troubled times.
Psalm 24:3-4 “Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? It is he who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the Lord.”
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 created this image, darkening it to give a moody, angry feel. This represents God, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, who has chosen Jerusalem.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
