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 444: November 20th 2018
A rapture ready heart:
Many people have tunnel vision as far as the rapture is concerned. They don’t want to pay the price to get their heart right before our Lord. It is much more important than you can imagine. Of course, the rapture is very important, but according to numerous (unpopular) verses, there will be far fewer that will be saved, and therefore rapture-ready than most people believe!
The soon-coming rapture will be a great shock for many who think they are right with God, who will be left behind to go through the seven-year tribulation period. Others will be saved, but will receive a puff of fast-disappearing smoke for their reward. Some will be richly, eternally, rewarded.
Don’t minimise the prize giving! “Run in such a way as to win the prize.”(1 Corinthians 9:24)
Job 27:6 “My righteousness I hold fast to, and I will not let it go. My heart shall not reproach me as long as I live.”
You can be rapture-ready or tribulation-ready! You are destined for the Throne or Rome!
Isaiah 29:15 “Woe to those who seek deep to hide their counsel far from the Lord, and their works are in the dark. They say, ‘who sees us and who knows us?’”
What a big mistake!
Presumption, based on the opinions of the masses, is a very costly mistake.
Many study the letter of the word (logos) and in their pride, gain much knowledge, “puffing themselves up.” They think they are seeking God, but they mix their knowledge in the blender, with worldly philosophy, and end up worse than before. (Colossians 2:8)
Job 40:8 (Amp) “Will you annul and render void My judgement? Will you condemn Me that you may appear righteous and justified?”
Note in the verse above that when people try to justify themselves and their worldly ways, they have to come against God.
Psalm 50:21 “You thought I (God) was altogether like you, but I will reprove you.”
Psalm 10:13 “Why do the wicked renounce God? He has said in his heart, ‘You will not require an account.”
These verses above are a shock indeed. They succinctly spell out the error of modern thinking. Tragically, a lot of these thoughts have come over into the church. In most cases, it is the counterfeit church, where these mistakes are found.
The pride of life:
A life of pride is a life exalted above God and His ways. It is deadly. (1 John 2:16)
Pride was the very sin that brought down Lucifer, Adam and numerous others. Lucifer was the highest of the arch-angels. He was the light-giver. Pride turned him into the deliverer of darkness, the chief of devils and demons, and the king of hell.
Pride in you gradually raises a veil of blindness over your understanding and squeezes the life of God out, leading you to destruction. (“God resists the proud.” James 4:6)
Pride distributes hell into your life, little bit by little bit.
Be aware that both pride and humility are active, powerful transforming agents. Practised humility has devastating effects on pride and its related sins.
Pride blinds and blindness leaves you with no light, and this sets you up for great deception!
Job 18:5-7 (Amp) “The light of the wicked indeed goes out and the flame of his fire does not shine. The light shall be darkness in his dwelling...The steps of his strength shall be shortened, and his own counsel in which he trusted, shall bring about his downfall.”
Job 18:18 “He is driven from light into darkness...”
Psalm 97:11 “Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.”
No rapture, they say!
One of the biggest deceptions is that there will be no rapture. “Everything will continue as it always has done!” (2 Peter 3:4)
Interestingly, many of those who believe these things also reject the reality of hell and eternal judgement. (Hebrews 6:2)
If people don’t teach on the rapture, or know about it, according to the scriptures, they will have no hope of His coming and no expectation. (1 John 3:3) You may think that’s fine. It is not! You will then have your hope anchored in the world!
Hebrews 6:19 (Amp) “We have this hope as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, which cannot break; a hope that reaches the Presence, behind the veil.”
“Reaching the Presence” here could well apply to the rapture!
Interestingly there are many consistencies amongst those who deny the rapture. Almost without exception they are absolutely wrong on all prophecy relating to Israel and that’s a huge amount! They normally have hearts in tune with the world, the media, the movies and the like.
They are products of a well mixed, wishy-washy, worldly, compromised gospel of hogwash.
Did you know that there is a rapture at the end of the tribulation – at the Second Coming? It’s a rapture to hell of all unbelievers. The Bible also refers to it as: “The feast of vultures!”
To be a victim of the vultures you just need to be yourself, and flow with the masses.
The rapture ready heart:
It is so important to have a ready heart. If we have to wait a little longer, we will be ready.
Psalm 24:3-4 “Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord, or stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart...”
Psalm 15:1 “Lord, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill? It is he who walks uprightly (holy) and works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart.”
Psalm 17:15 “As for me, I will see Your face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied when I awake in Your likeness.”
Hosea 10:12 “Sow for yourselves in righteousness; reap in mercy. Break up your fallow ground, (hard hearts) for it is time to seek the Lord, till He comes and rains righteousness on you.”
If saved, you are already right with God in spirit, but we all need to be right in soul as well. The key words from these verses above are: ●Clean hands, ●a pure heart, ●walking in holiness, ●working righteousness, ●speaking truth, ●living in His likeness ●breaking of hard hearts.
In search of quality!
Jeremiah 2:21 “I have planted you, a noble vine, a seed of the highest quality.”
1 Corinthians 3:13 “Each one’s work will become manifest: For the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work of what sort (Lit=quality) it is.”
As a believer, you are all called to change and transfer the quality in your heart to your soul.
If you seek the Lord and refuse to change, you won’t find Him. He is not there.
Quality people are those who have depth of experience with God. You transmit and impart what you are, which comes from whom or what you submit to and how much renewal you have achieved.
John 17:19 “For their sakes, I sanctify (set apart) Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth.”
The working “tools” God has given us are His cross and our own cross to take up daily. His tools include pure undiluted, Spirit-led truth – all of it.
Messing with the truth is one of the sure ways to blurred, hazy, foggy, neutralised, lukewarm Christian hogwash.
God gave us the cross and the cross applied, now gives us God, pure and holy.
Proverbs 27:7 “To a hungry soul even the bitter is sweet.”
“Be perfect” is the command of our Lord. It is not, become perfect, but be perfect. It is Messiah in you the hope of glory. He is in you and we are to reproduce the original!
Through the cross we as Christians died, were buried, were resurrected from the dead, are seated in heaven, justified and made holy. And technically, it all happened before the foundation of the world!
Here is good news to anyone who has been involved in curse-generating activities, or even has generational curses over them: “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree.” (Galatians 3:13) Our Lord has taken that curse upon Himself at the cross. You are now free indeed, through the cross.
To add to all of this, the kingdom of God has been deposited in our hearts as believers. This kingdom and its fruits must displace the kingdom of the world in us, through Adam.
The amazing Temple of quality:
The meaning of the word “temple” is: “Consecrated or sacred, a separated place” (Strong’s G2411)
This word meaning is incredible indeed. It relates to the physical temple in Jerusalem, but the Bible calls the believers heart – the temple of the Holy Spirit. (1 Corinthians 6:19) So, we are the temple of God. But please note the meanings!
Now let’s go a little further:
The word “Salvation” in Hebrew is “Yeshua.” In Greek it is “Stoteria.” It means “Set apart” or “deliverance.”
The words, Holy, Saint, Sanctify, Salvation, and Temple, all have the same root meaning which is: “Separate, Apart.”
Do you see the incredible consistency? Do you see why we have no truck with the world?
As true end-time temples of the Lord we are to be separate and apart from the world-system and its ways and influences. If you are truly born of the Spirit of God you will see and understand these things – you will overcome the world. (1 John 5:4)
It’s important to know that true biblical Christianity is radical and different, compared to the spiritual climate of the day. You won’t find it in many churches today. Our Lord Himself would not be welcome in many churches! They would throw Him and His radical ways out.
Everyone will have all their beliefs corrected by God soon. For many – too late!
You don’t have to have every last detail of your beliefs correct right now, although that is first prize, but you do have to bow your heart in humility and surrender now. Every knee will bow...every one!
►The new believer with a heart bowed to our Lord will be rapture ready. The Christian deeply rooted in the word of God, led by the Spirit, will be safe and rapture ready.
The cross roads:
The roads to eternity cross each other at the great wide gulf or chasm which is impassable. The cross stands right there at the edge. To cross the valley of destruction you have to embrace, wear, take-up, and eat the cross, getting it on the inside of you. (Jeremiah 15:16)
You can only be safe in the world in the cross!
We see this pathway in the Lamb, the Lion and the Dove. Our Lord went like a “lamb to the slaughter” and paid the extremely high price for our salvation. But He is also the Lion of the Jews and a Lion to all who won’t receive Him. The Dove of the Holy Spirit represents the coming of peace after judgement, as it was in the days of Noah.
Those who reject the Lamb, the Lion and the Dove, will by default receive the beast, the dragon and vultures.
Make sure you choose the right road!
The heart of the believer:
Hebrews 4:12 (Amp) “The word of God speaks, is alive and full of power – making it active, operative, energising and effective. It is sharper than any two edged sword, penetrating to the dividing of the breath of life (soul) and the immortal spirit and the body, exposing and sifting and analysing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.”
Today the very heart of Christianity is under attack. You must be aware of the devil’s devices and his methods of getting at your heart to bring you down. One of the powerful, evil spirits at work is the Jezebel spirit, which operates mainly through women but is also clearly evident in men and in church leadership.
●The Jezebel spirit is alive and well and at work in most churches today. This spirit is designed to bring down God’s authority structures and replace them with illegitimate ways.
●The word “Jezebel” (Lyzebel in Hebrew) means “Baal exalts.” The word, “Baal” means, “lord.” Obviously this is the false lord!
This spirit is all about control – exalted satanic control. It is identifiable (not exclusively) in some surprising ways.
2 Kings 9:30 “When Jehu had come to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it, and she put paint on her eyes and adorned her head...”
Hebrew word studies reveal that the “paint on her eyes” was a thick mascara of sorts, curving up an outwards from the corner of the eyes, giving a false sense of attention-demanding importance.
There is a spirit behind this form and style of make-up and dress.
You must renounce the spirit, seek deliverance from it, and cast it out, which most time involves throwing the individual out of the church, banishing them.
The Jezebel spirit is closely associated with the Nicolaitan spirit. Both want control and domination. This spirit is seen in the leadership. It operates in pride and lies, using false humility. It pits people against each other. It targets the gullible amongst the laity. It has an appearance of exalted authority.
●The Nicolaitans (Revelation 2:6, 2:14-15) were established in the church. The word means “to conquer the laity or people.” They taught that grace meant total liberty and licence. They were distinguished by clothing or appearances that separated them “above” the laity, giving them a false sense of pride-based authority.
The Nicolaitan spirit is seen in ministers who separate themselves above the laity in dress, titles, mannerisms or appearance or authority.
The Jezebel and Nicolaitan spirits are twins trying to usurp spiritual authority to bring down the work of God in an individual’s heart or the church corporately.
Note that our Lord says that “He hates the deeds and the doctrines of the Nicolaitans! (Revelation 2:6, 2:14-15)
Examine your heart
Jeremiah 17:9 “The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked, who can know it?”
Jeremiah 29:13-14 “You will seek Me and find Me when you seek for Me with all of your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord...”
Psalm 119:162 “...My heart stands in awe of Your word.”
There is a very sure way to examine and know your heart. Go to the Lord in sincere prayer and ask Him to show it to you. Tell Him that you are choosing the fear of the Lord in the process. You will soon see your own heart and what is required.
The heart of the world:
1 John 5:19 “We know that we are of God and the whole world lies under the power of the wicked one.”
It’s not parts of the world that are under the dominion of Satan – it’s the entire world system.
The world can never create true world peace. It is of the wrong spirit!
We pursue that which we value. “Where your treasure is there your heart will be." Too many have the world’s materialism and ways as their treasure! Their hearts are rotten.
Most are not living, they’re just existing in a superficial digital, automated world with no heart. They have no depth of life. Their lives are filled with illegitimate things. Their drugs, sex and rock and roll, can’t fulfil them, and never will.
These days so many are so shallow, but sometimes you find someone that really strikes you, and immediately your hearts bond.
The heart of Israel:
Deuteronomy 4:29-31 “You (Israel) will seek the Lord your God and you will find Him, if you seek Him with all your soul. When you are in distress (tribulation) and all these things come upon you in the latter days, when you turn to the Lord your God and obey His voice, He will not forsake you, nor destroy you, nor forget His covenant with you.”
Israel’s harlotry and disobedience is well documented in the scriptures. Because of it she has brought judgement on herself, BUT there is always a BUT!
Ezekiel 16:38 “I will judge you (Israel) as women who break wedlock or shed blood are judged: I will bring blood upon you in fury and jealousy!”
BUT, just a few verses on:
Ezekiel 16:60 “Nevertheless, I will remember My covenant with you in the days of your youth, and I will establish an everlasting covenant with you.”
Many say that Jews must convert to Christianity! Well if that is so, is it Catholicism, maybe Calvinism. Perhaps they must become Methodists or Anglicans or, or, or! Well, at least they must celebrate Christian Christmas and pagan Easter and eat a ham sandwich!
To the shame of Christianity, there are over 35,000 denominations (including the splits.) Most are full of Babylonian paganism of sorts.
No, Jews are to convert to their Jewish Messiah, who is our Messiah and return to pure sin-free, denomination (division)-free worship.
To be silent on Israel in these prophetic days is to side with God’s enemy.
►Israel’s anthem is beautiful.
I’ve adapted some of the phrases into the following “poem” for your benefit.
The ancient hope of Israel is not lost. As long as the precious wall remains and the humbled gates beckon, the eyes will well up with tears. The daughter of Zion, of Jerusalem speaks and calls for peace. The voice of God in the veins of Jewish blood, cries out for ultimate victory. The spilt blood of the defenders of God’s call to return; turns to dewdrops of coming fertility. The living God is your healer and peacemaker, O Israel.
Isaiah 8:14 Amp “He shall be for a sanctuary – a sacred indestructible asylum to those who reverently fear and trust in Him...”
Psalm 27:4 “One thing I have desired of the Lord, that I will seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord.”
1 Peter 1:8-9 “Now you do not see Him, yet believing you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith – the salvation of your souls.”
I took these two pictures at Etosha, Namibia and blended them together.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
