|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.|

Deuteronomy 7:6 “You (Israel) are a holy people to the Lord your God, who has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth.”
1 Chronicles 21:1 “Now Satan stood up against Israel...”
Zechariah 3:2 “The Lord said to Satan, the Lord rebuke you Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you.”
2 Chronicles 33:4 “...The Lord said, My name shall be in Jerusalem forever.”
Psalm 125:3 “The sceptre of wickedness will not rest on the land allotted to the righteous.”
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!
The course of Israel and the church:
The course of Israel has a number of parallels with the course of the church, and many direct opposites to the course of the world.
I have compiled a few of the many verses relating to God’s relationship with Israel and the church – for your benefit. In this day, pressure is mounting on both. In reality it is mounting on God’s relationship with the two. The course of the world must be considered too.
It’s of great importance to know these things and to know them well. Do not be neutral! If you are, you will succumb to increasing satanic pressure and are likely to turn and come against the work of God, beginning your ride down a slippery slope.
Have a look at these amazing verses below and note the progression, as seen in the words in bold.
Exodus 4:22 “Say to Pharaoh, ‘Israel is My son, My firstborn.”
Hosea 11:1 “When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called My son.”
Romans 9:26 “It shall come to pass where it was said to them (Israel), ‘you are not My people’, there they will be called, sons of the living God.’”
Numbers 6:27 “So they shall put My name on the children of Israel and I will bless them.”
Hosea 2:19 “I will betroth you (Israel) to Me forever; yes, I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in loving kindness and mercy.”
Jeremiah 31:4 “Again I will build you and you shall be rebuilt, O virgin of Israel...You shall be adorned.”
Isaiah 54:5-6 “Your maker (Israel) is your husband, the Lord of hosts is His name...He is called the God of the whole earth.”
There are many similarities in these verses with God’s work in the church, but please note that most of these verses and terms above relate to family. This indicates a warm, personal relationship. It is not a cold religious law and works-based relationship.
So, God has a family called Israel as well as the church. You don’t want to mess with God’s family! Only the blind or stupid would do so.
As we see in these verses above, the course of Israel goes from the call to leave Egypt to birth, to child, to son, to virgin, to marriage, to receiving His name, to husband. What an incredible journey!
Do you see the course of the church right here too.
The church is called out of Egypt (the world) as we are born-again. We begin life at this new-birth. We are the children of God, we are virgins in spirit, (and are born of the One who was born of a virgin). We are betrothed and soon to sit at the “marriage feast of the Lord.” We have received His name upon us – Christian (Acts 11:26) Christian = Christ in us. We are the bride of our Husband of glory.
In the verse below we see that the marriage relationship – a covenant, lasts for a thousand generations. In other words, it’s ongoing. No, God has not cast away His people. (Romans 11:2, 25)
Deuteronomy 7:9 “God is a faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations, with those who love Him and keep His word.”
The verse below shows that the world is on another course, but it is a planned and plotted course,
Ephesians 2:2-3 “You once walked according to the course of this world, according to the power of the prince of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience.”
The course of the world led by its prince of darkness, is into Egypt (the world-system) ending in hell. The course of the world is lined with disobedience and rebellion to God.
The course of Israel and the church is out of Egypt, which is a type of the world – to glory!
The course of saved Israel and the church, places us in family relationship now. The course and destiny of the church including born-again Jews is heaven, while those saved in the tribulation will be on course for the Millennium, but then at the end of it all – the grand eternal plan of God comes about, which is ultimate, union of God’s entire family forever in the eternity of eternities.
Set your eyes upon these things. Bow down your heart and mind to our Lord and His word and you will see great and mighty things! It’s all by divine design!
Edition 455: February 5th 2019
Messages from heaven:
Due to the lateness and urgency of the hour and the prompting of the Spirit of God, with confirmation from my main prayer partner, I must deal more fervently with Israel right now.
These messages are essentially for those left behind after the rapture, both Jews and Gentiles
So, I encourage you to save them, or print them out or do what you feel necessary for them to fall into the hands of people in the tribulation period. But they are also for us all now.
I received an amazing email from a friend, supporter and reader. She said: “The Prophetic Scroll will be very much recognised by the native olive branches (Israel) as they burst into bloom just after the rapture. I encourage you to be even more mindful of our Jewish brothers and sisters, almost like a baton being handed over to those who will run with it.”
The rapture ends the church dispensation and begins the final seven years of the Old Covenant period, now on hold, called Daniel’s 70th week. (of years) It is also called “The time of Jacob’s trouble” and the “tribulation.”
The seven-year tribulation marks huge dispensational changes in God’s dealings with the world. This is when Israel becomes the main focus of prophetic things. “All Israel will be saved.” (“All “being the entire remnant, and not every single Jew) Huge numbers of Gentiles will also be saved.
God has chosen you, Israel for a grand purpose:
Here is the purpose in a nutshell:
Israel: ●Elected ●Rebelled ●Rejected ●Regathered ●Repented ●Accepted.
But it does not end there. After the “acceptance” comes God’s grand finale, which is Israel being used as His instrument to bring salvation to the world.
Israel, stand strong and look to your God. As you repent, your eyes will open to your glorious Messiah and His grand plans for you.
Your calling is holy and sure. (2 Timothy 1:9) Be secure in that.
Yes, you were chosen ages ago to be God’s witnesses of His good news to the world. He has not forsaken that promise, and now it is your time, Israel.
Joshua 21:45 “Not a word failed of any good thing which the Lord had spoken to the house of Israel. All came to pass.” (Joshua 23:14)
Exodus 19:4-6 “You (Moses) have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagle’s wings, and brought you to Myself. Now therefore if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine, and you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation.”
God’s ultimate purpose for you Israel, and you, dear Christian, is to “bring you to Himself!”
The command from God to the world:
“Let My people go so that they may worship Me.” (Exodus 5:1, Exodus 8:1, Exodus 9:1)
The world, blinded by its pride and its god, will intensify its stand against you, Israel, but the world has chosen the wrong way, and you Israel, with God’s help will bring many in the world to their knees in salvation, and the rest to their knees in defeat.
We know the story of the birth of the Arab / Israeli conflict. It started in Rebecca’s womb at the birth of her twins Esau and Jacob. Esau, being the first born of the two, had the birthright, which included the land. Jacob had his name changed to Israel and became the father of Israel and the Jews.
Esau was the father of the Arab nations, which today would include the Palestinians. He did not respect his birthright and sold it (a legal transaction) to Jacob. (Genesis 25:23)
But now we have the arising problem: Esau wants his birthright back! The nations of the world in their blindness are assisting Esau’s lies claiming that they have a right to the land.
In this very simple, easy to understand situation, we have the entirety of the Arab (Palestinian) / Israeli issue encapsulated. It all began in Rebecca’s womb and will end at Armageddon!
The world wants Israel to capitulate to Arab / Palestinian demands for land, or do they? That’s the smoke screen! The world and its god, Satan wants to destroy God’s plan for Israel, to be saved, and to bring salvation to the world, and worship to the true God.
God’s divine election relating to Israel, smashes the god of democracy in the head. Modern, intellectual, liberal, humanism claims Israel for the world, but God claims Israel as His!
- Embezzlement: Misappropriation of another’s possessions to take ownership thereof.
- Larceny: Theft of property of another to permanently deprive the legitimate owner, under false pretences.
These terms could well be applied to the Palestinian claim to the land of Israel and Jerusalem. They call it the “occupation” of what they deem to be their land, by Israel. But God has occupied the land by His word and with His many promises to Israel.
Their well-used methods are simply indoctrination, propaganda, or revolution by gradualism!
So, world – “Let My people go,” from your insanity. Just like Christians, they will never be yours!
World, please read this verse below and note your great failure and who gets let go!
Zechariah 8:22-23 “Many peoples and strong nations shall come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the Lord. In those days, ten men of every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, ‘Let us go with you, for we heard that God is with you.”
You see world, you won’t “let My people go,” to fulfil their God-given call. But God will destroy you and they will go to Him. Then His eternal promise will come to pass as many within the nations come to Israel to be turned to the living God.
Say hello to your coming doom, world!
Psalm 114:7 “Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob.”
World peace... hell’s way:
- Lenin (One of the architects of communism): “World peace is communist world control.”
- Islam: “World peace is an Islamic world with no resistance, and Sharia law ruling.”
- Hitler: “World peace will come for a thousand years under Nazi rulership.”
- Catholics : We will bring world peace into being.”
- Antichrist: I will control the world, its religions, and its economy by strength and domination. (Isaiah 10:13-14, Revelation 17:17, 13:7)
The common denominator here is forced control with the Jews enslaved, removed or killed, so that God’s plan will be frustrated. That is the way of Satan, and nothing has changed.
►Hitler’s mentor, Dietrich Eckart, an occultist, when he first met Hitler said, “Here is the long awaited Messiah!” Eckart became known as the “High priest of the Nazis”. (With no Jews.)
►Interestingly, Constantine, the main architect of the Catholic church called himself Pontifex Maximus, meaning, the high priest of the heathen.
But God said of Israel (the Jews) “You will be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. (Exodus 19:6) (The true church also bears this title.)
Isaiah 61:6-7 “You (Israel) shall be named the Priests of the Lord, men shall call you the Servants of our God. You shall eat the riches of the Gentiles and in their glory you shall boast. Instead of your shame, you shall have double honour. Therefore in their land, they shall possess double; everlasting joy shall be theirs.”
World peace will arrive when God’s plans for Israel and Jerusalem are fulfilled.
World, you are soon going to make your great fatal, fateful mistake on the plains of Israel and in the city of Jerusalem! (Zechariah 12:3) World, why are you so stupid that you can’t even see the pattern in history which has already happened, never mind your future reflected in that history?
A message to the world’s mass-media:
You are and will do the works of your god. You are doomed.
King David had a trusted counsellor named Ahithophel. But he arose in pride and became bitter and gave David the wrong advice. In many ways Ahithophel was a type of the voice of the media.
2 Samuel 15:31 “They told David, ‘Ahithophel is among the conspirators with Absalom.’ So David prayed: ‘O Lord, turn the counsel of Ahithophel into foolishness.”
Interestingly, the name ‘Ahithophel’ means “Brother of ruin and foolishness.”
Mass-media, your proud counsel is your own ruin and foolishness!
►A wise believer will pray for the counsel of the media to be turned to foolishness in his own lifel, and not be influenced.
There is another important message here: Ahithophel was an insider. This is a powerful type of the churches of replacement theology and their evil counsel. They are a Trojan.
One of the main aims of the false church will be to obstruct God’s plans for Israel. This is why the mass-media loves false, fallen religion.
Being an ex media man myself, I have a heart for them. My prayer has always been that some get saved. I know some who have, but the great majority will not because of the nature of the industry and its connection to the world-system.
Those in the media who have seen the light, and will in the tribulation period – you will have a new powerful role, with new insight and understanding. Glory to you!
Where did the chariot go?
Elijah was walking along with Elisha and a whirlwind appeared, and suddenly Elijah was raptured up to heaven in a chariot of fire within a whirlwind! (2 Kings2 11-12)
But this was an odd chariot. Elisha, in his shock, called it the “chariot of Israel.”
This occurred just after Elijah’s miracle of the parting of the water, so that he and Elisha could cross on dry ground at a place called Gilgal (2 Kings 2:8)
Gilgal is where the Israelites crossed into the Promise Land (Joshua 4:1-9)
So what we have here is a type of the rapture, just as the children of Israel cross into their new, spiritual promised land.
The rapture is the shock that will cause the Jews to become jealous and angry, leading to their salvation. (Romans 10:19) The rapture is a “chariot” carrying a spectacular message to Israel!
The rapture is a “banner” and a baton!
The great danger for the world and the church:
It is a huge thing to come against the Jews and God’s plans for them. You will be cursed. That applies to individuals and entire nations. Anyone blessing Israel will be blessed, and anyone cursing Israel will be cursed. (Genesis 12:3, Numbers 24:9)
We see that Pharaoh refused to release the Jews when Moses commanded him to. This was the reason God hardened his heart. After God’s intervention he did “let My people”, but then still pursued the children of Israel, leading to the deaths of his own armies in the Red Sea.
Due to Israel’s rebellion they too had their hearts hardened, which is evident even today. (Ezekiel 3:7, Hebrews 3:8) What a terrible thing to have a hardened heart in these days!
Ephesians 4:17-18 “Do not walk as the rest of the Gentiles do in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardening of their heart.”
A hard heart is the open door for demons and spirits of anti-Semitism, replacement theology and Jew hatred in these days.
Beware; these are powerful, evil spirits at work. You can’t reason with them. You will succumb. You must cast them out of your own life.
The funny thing is the very opposite of replacement theology will be the order of the day, in the tribulation period. The Jews will be the main focus of the work of God and the left-behind religious elite become part of the false prophet.
The early church reached the whole known world then. (Colossians 1:23) Then came the Catholic-created dark ages, replacement theology, anti-Semitism and Jew hatred, by the fallen church. The Jews as God’s evangelists in the tribulation will reach the whole world with gospel!
The word “inextricable” means, “Impossible to be separated.” It applies perfectly, inextricably to Israel, Jerusalem, the Jews and God’s irrevocable call and plan. You can’t remove it. (Romans 11:29)
The world would like Israel to become part of their world – not called, and not chosen, with no separate, holy, godly, calling and destiny. That’s why the world hates them!
Israel’s birth-pangs and spiritual birth:
A birth is a painful experience, but produces victory. What the world is trying to do now is abort the process and kill God’s work in His people. No wonder Satan’s world supports abortion.
Israel, the people and the city have suffered much through history. The birth is about to manifest.
Suffering makes you beautiful! It may not make you pretty, but it makes you deeply beautiful.
Isaiah 52:1 “Awake, awake! Put on your strength O Zion; put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city.”
Yes, Israel, you are on the way to eternal, deep, spiritual beauty, but there are pains to endure.
Isaiah 61:3 “To them who mourn in Zion, I will give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning.”
Zechariah 13:8-9 “It shall come to pass in all the land, says the Lord, that two thirds of it shall be cut off and die, but one third shall be left in it. I will bring the one third through the fire, will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, and I will answer them. I will say; ‘This is My people’. And each one will say, ‘The Lord is My God.’”
Some say that above verse relates to various historic events and wars like the Holocaust, but not so. It is prophetic because of the fact that the remnant are brought to salvation in Messiah, which is still future.
This verse above, speaks of part of the coming new Holocaust in which Israel will suffer great loss, but only temporarily on her way to victory.
Today the majority of the world’s youth know nothing of the Holocaust, or of the Messiah. The youth of Israel know all too well about the Holocaust, but they don’t know the Messiah (yet)! That is all about to change.
Zechariah 2:8 “Thus says the Lord of hosts: He has sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you, for he who touches you (Jerusalem) touches the apple of His eye.”
As the birth approaches Israel repents.
Hosea 10:12 “...Break up your fallow ground (hard hearts) for it is time to seek the Lord, till He comes and reigns righteousness on you.”
Romans 11:25-27 “I do not desire, brethren that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that hardening in part has happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: The Deliverer shall come out of Zion, and He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob. For this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins.”
The world (Pharaoh / Egypt) will not repent of their hard hearts. Israel will repent!
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...”
Ezekiel 39:29 “I will not hide My face from them anymore; for I shall have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel, says the Lord God.”
Israel, today you are blind to the beautiful painting that you are. One day very soon, as the veil lifts you will see your own spiritual beauty! Jump for joy Israel!
Israel: Magnificent promises:
Isaiah 49:6 “I also will give you (Israel) as a light to the Gentles, that you should be My salvation to the ends of the earth.”
Isaiah 49:16 “See I have inscribed you (Zion) on the palms of My hands; your walls are continually before Me.”
Isaiah 62:4 “You shall no longer be termed forsaken, nor shall your land be termed desolate.”
Isaiah 62:12 “They shall call them (Israel) the Holy People, the Redeemed of the Lord; and you shall be called Sought Out, a City not Forsaken.”
Acts 13:47 “I have set you (Jews) to be a light to the Gentiles that you should be for salvation to the ends of the earth.”
Isaiah 60:2-3 “Behold the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you (Jews), and His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.”
The big, well-used (rightly so) chant of the Jews is “Never again” in relation to the Holocaust. But God is saying “Never again” too. He is saying; “Never again” will My people forsake Me. He is saying, “Never again” will I forsake them or their land or their city!
When the author walks onto the stage, the play is over.
I took the background picture in the Etosha desert and the white rhino in KwaZulu Natal and blended them together.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
