- Turkey orders new S-400 missile systems from Russia (17th June)
- Iran, Germany, France and UK set up trading and payment channel to circumvent US sanctions.
The new agenda for the “good" of all is a globalist, socialist, one world order, with an inter-faith religion, and the mass-media as its voice. All these have a powerful unifying spirit at work in them – the spirit of antichrist. Socialism, like the Stalinist is of Satanism. You can never get rid of poverty by giving someone money. Poverty is a spiritual force essentially rooted in a curse from which deliverance is needed.
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 walls of Jerusalem:
Poetry is not really my thing. But I do recall lots of poetic thoughts as I walked around the streets of Jerusalem some time ago. I was awe struck not by where our Messiah walked, but the thrilling thought of where He will walk. The dusty streets, stones and walls became the subject of some paintings I did later. But I’m now going to wax lyrical. I’ve put together a painting of words – for your benefit.
Ancient stones are whispering silent soliloquies, among the sun-burnt walls. Corner-stones of spiritual stability and strength, still stand secure, riddled with holes of the ancient hatred’s bullets, and stained with dried blood of ages past, and present times too.
These stones of Jerusalem’s protection are stones of separation – holy, immovable stones, seemingly dead, but breathing life of living history. The moss-dripping masonry are milestones, with living, green twigs in crags - walls of ruined relics, written into eternity’s word.
Listen to the stones; put your ear to the walls of wisdom. Do you hear the cries of the dead? Do you hear the shrieks of celebration? Do you hear the rocks, the great carved boulders, and the pebbles, anointed with glorious and fearful prophecy?
The scarred stones of poetic justice are again announcing judgement soon to fall. The ancient stones are echoing the warnings of God. No other city-stones speak thus.
Sin's offering, the offspring of evil, will soon yield frightful fruit: Fear, horror, terror and panic. Even the beautiful aged stones of Jerusalem will shiver and shake under earth’s soon quaking!
Yet the calm, confident, contentment of fearless holiness, and eternal beauty will stand secure amongst the strain and stress of destruction's dread.
Sin’s eternal separation from the victory and glory-producing suffering of Calvary will soon be the shock of all shocks to the sin-filled world of self-worship.
Do you see the lion on the wall? Do you hear the eternal Lion, and His severe message? Do you hear God’s trumpets under His Lion’s feet and in His roar?
Can you distinguish between the Lion of God and the roaring counterfeit lion frightening only the spiritually frightened and fragile?
Sound the trumpet! Sound the glistening terrible trumpet. Sound the trumpet of ingathering. Sound the trumpet of great victory! The world’s blinded ears see nothing – fools of tragic fools - deceived in the midst of God’s shining love – rejected!
Sound the trumpet! Sound David’s harp, and raise the golden sword of glorious victory!
The sword of Satan has pierced the Shepherd, but soon the Shepherd’s sword shall strike the roaring serpent and the people will scatter to a certain hell, with all the sin-filled nations drowning in their doomed sin. Babylon’s man-made, imposter-made,confused bricks of mortar will be no more.
Sound the trumpet. Raise the alarm, raise the sword of glory, and roar, Lion of Judah - roar! Awaken your people from fateful slumber, to their coming Lamb.
The stonework of the stonemasons of Jerusalem speaks of salvation past, present, and soon to come. The stones of Jerusalem contain a living message, a message of life, eternal life, freely given but of utmost cost and glorious value.
But you must bow your speak to the speak of these sculptured, weathered virtues. You must fall on your face in the dust before the message of these rocks of ages. As you do, salvation speaks, and soon shouts, lighting the core of your life with unquenchable, immortal fire – the fire of God!
These old speaking stones sing a new song of stern severity, of great gravity. They are sharp, hard stones, but soft and gentle to His own. They are stones of solid prophecy. They will fall on and crush the nations. They speak of things to come, and very soon too.
As we see the spectacular, dramatic, majestic message of the walls of Jerusalem, Let’s take a glimpse into the exclusive, holy, eternity of eternities:
There will be stones of pure silver, streets of glorious gold. All around, imbedded in gates and walls, always open, will be unimaginable jewels. They will be jasper, sapphire, emerald, pearls, topaz, beryl, amethyst, rubies diamonds, and more.
There will be no sun or moon - the light of God’s glory will be everywhere, forever – always.
There will be the tree of life, next to crystal rivers, each tree yielding fruit once a month and there shall be no more curse! Lions shall be your friends.
The army of the Lord will now be the bride of Messiah, bedecked in righteousness, with incorruptible crowns of untarnished magnificence, ready - forever and ever.
Isaiah 9:7 “Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end...”
The Lion of lions, the Lamb of God, the sword of pure peace, will be our very comfort and eternal grace. Stones once silent, will serenade and sing with a song of songs and a descant that will reverberate through the universe.
Are you ready for the great grandeur - the glory to come?
Edition 461: March 19th 2019
Deal of the Century:
These are words of life!
This is also a message to presidents, kings, leaders and all in authority.
Peace in the Middle East and the ancient related prophecies of this event is the subject.
The Trump / Kushner “Deal of the Century” will be released just after the Israeli election in April. At this stage no one except a few insiders, know what the deal contains. There’s been much speculation, which I’m not interested in.
We do know for a fact that the deal will include a wider Middle East peace plan between the Arab nations, the Palestinians and Israel. We do know that it would include some form of land for peace arrangement. The timing of this is all very important.
Due to the details of Bible prophecy, we do know that this “Deal of the Century” cannot be the Daniel 9:27 peace treaty / covenant between Israel and “the many.”
But there is plenty of evidence to presume that this will be a pre-cursor to Daniel 9:27.
With that in mind, I believe it is timely to look into the subject now, ahead of time.
For some odd reason, many Christians believe that this peace deal will be of God. Perhaps that’s because of the Trump / Kushner involvement. Yes, I believe God has and will still use President Trump for many things; just He used the Persian king – Cyrus.
But make no mistake, this deal is pure satanic, and will lead to the unveiling of the antichrist.
We all know Jarred Kushner had his offices in number 666 Fifth Avenue New York. This was where he sat working on the deal when it all started up. That is a bit more than a subliminal sign! No, he is NOT the antichrist!
Due to original words used, this is NOT the reviving of an existing peace treaty like the Oslo Accord and others. They are all long gone and stone dead. Their details are not relevant anymore either, meaning they would have to be totally re-negotiated.
What we need to watch for, when the deal is released, and if accepted by the parties, is the response to it. Will it lead to the big Daniel 9 covenant, which could come within months afterwards, perhaps on Rosh Hashanah in September!
Daniel 9:27 “Then he (antichrist) shall confirm a covenant with many for one week (of years); but in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wings of the abomination shall be one who makes desolate...” (See also Daniel 8:25, 11:21)
The timing is important, because so many other prophetic ducks are lined up in a row too!
Bear in mind that we are in strange days these days. So far there has been rejection of any sort of deal with Israel, by the Palestinians. But as, said, these days are of supernatural occurrences. Something will cause them to melt!
The deal will include aspects relating to Jerusalem or parts of it. It will also include something relating to the rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem.
The biggest issue of all; and the very reason for the start of the tribulation period and God’s fury and anger, is the subject of the rest of this edition – a peace covenant.
The coming Deal of the Century and what it leads to will be a stumbling block for Israel!
Leviticus 19:14 “...You shall put no stumbling block before the blind, but shall fear the Lord your God. I am the Lord.”
The pre-existing, eternal covenant:
Ezekiel 37:26-28 “I will make a covenant of peace with them (Israel) and it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: I will establish them and multiply them and set My sanctuary in their midst forevermore. My tabernacle will be with them; indeed I shall be their God and they shall be My people. The nation s also will know that I, the Lord sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forevermore.” (The following verses describe the Gog and Magog war, or WW111.)
Please note very well that God has an existing, eternal peace covenant with Israel.
Tragically, prophecy reveals that Israel will break God’s covenant and replace it with the doomed, death, peace covenant with the antichrist.
The violation of God’s covenant:
Exodus 23:32-33 “You shall make no covenant with them, nor with their gods. They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against Me. For if you serve their gods, (Islam) it will surely be a snare to you.”
Isaiah 28:15 “You have said, ‘We have made a covenant with death, and with hell we are in agreement. When the overflowing scourge (tribulation) passes through, it will not come to us, for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood we have hidden ourselves.’”
The verses above and below reveal, Israel’s greatest mistake.
Isaiah 28:18 “Your covenant with death will be annulled, and your agreement with Sheol (hell) will not stand; when the overflowing scourge passes through, then you will be trampled down by it.”
Amazingly, we see from the two verses above, that Israel will make a covenant with the antichrist, thinking it will spare them from God’s wrath in the tribulation. But what happens is just what is revealed in numerous other prophecies: The covenant with hell gets broken and they do get “trampled” by the tribulation period!
Here are more of the tragic covenant-breaking verses:
Hosea 8:1-3 “Set the trumpet to your mouth! He shall come like an eagle against the house of the Lord, because they have transgressed My covenant and rebelled against My law. Israel will cry to Me, ‘My God, we know You!’ Israel has cast off the good; the enemy will pursue him.”
Daniel 11:32 “Those who do wickedly against the covenant, he (antichrist) will corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong and carry out great exploits.”
So, God has an existing eternal covenant with Israel, which Kushner and co. Have totally ignored and or rejected in favour of their own!
To accommodate Jews being saved, now before the tribulation, they come into the New Covenant, as revealed below.
Jeremiah 31:31-33 “Behold the days are coming says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel...I will put My law in their minds and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God and they will be My people.”
Isaiah 54:10 “My kindness shall not depart from you (Israel), nor shall My covenant of peace be removed.”
Preparation for the world ruler:
The coming world-ruler needs a world that he can rule. Socialism unites people offering the united masses to the devil on a tarnished silver platter, with true biblical freedom destroyed.
It’s all a centrally orchestrated move. None of what is happening is by chance. The world will, very suddenly, and powerfully snap into socialist unity the instant the Bible and its believers are silenced, or removed by rapture.
Islam will be an instrument to bring chaos to the world ahead of the release of the antichrist.
Let’s have a look at a picture painted by some word meanings:
►The word “Islam” means “submission or surrender”
►The word “Palestinian” comes from the root Hebrew word, “Plishtim” which means “Invaders.”
►The word “Hamas” is a Hebrew word meaning “violence.”
►The word “Jihad” means “The exertion of power,” “struggle by the sword, “holy war”.
►Abraham means: “Father of multitudes”.
►Isaac means: “Laughter”.
►Jacob means: “Supplanter” or replacement. (Jacob became Israel)
►Israel means: “Prince with God.”
In these name meanings we see a pathway of hatred, revenge, war, violence and hostility from Islam. And we see a totally different character in the Jews.
The world sees Israel as the aggressor and the Palestinians (Islam) as the victim! The Bible shows the opposite.
God’s will for Israel:
God has brought Israel to their knees and to captivity many times, because of their sin and rebellion. But He has never rejected them and will complete and bring His plan to pass.
Even when Israel was in captivity, God kept them as His own, knowing that there would come a time when they would repent on a massive scale.
►The place of Israel and the Jews in a nation is that nation’s own insurance policy from God. Israel is the safeguard. This is profound and far reaching. Israel is their safeguard because God has placed His name, word and will in the heart of Israel. His major work with Israel is still ahead.
Here is God’s word relating to the Jews in dispersion amongst the nations:
Jeremiah 29:7 “Seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace you will have peace.”
Here is the contrast as revealed in the Islamic Quran:
“I charge you to immigrate and wage jihad for the sake of Allah.” (Hadith 2863, the sayings of Muhammad.) Quran (Sura 8:74) “Those who believed and emigrated and performed jihad for the sake of Allah, and those who gave you help are the true believers. They will receive forgiveness.”
The purpose of Islamic migration is for subversion. It is for jihad to achieve ultimate world domination and to bring in world Sharia law.
Of the 99 names of Allah, none are “Father.”
Number 10 = “The most proud and dominant.”
Number 61 = “The destroyer and inflictor of death.”
Number 91 = “The distressor.”
Here is nature of the Arab’s (Islam) as revealed in the Bible:
Genesis 27:40-41 “By your sword you shall live, and you shall serve your brother, and it shall come to pass when you become restless, that you shall break his yolk from your neck. So Esau hated Jacob (Israel)”
Genesis 25:30-34 “Esau (father of the Arabs) said to Jacob, ‘please feed me with that same red stew, for I am weary.” Therefore his was called Edom (meaning red). But Jacob said, ‘Sell me your birthright today’...so he sold him his birthright...Thus Esau hated (rejected) his birthright.’”
The Deal of the Century will be a work to restore at least part of Esau’s birthright, which was sold to Jacob (Israel) in a legal transaction, confirmed by God’s covenant!
Right now, the world and its media puppets of their puppet master, Satan, can’t see through their deep, dark veil of blindness!
God’s will for Israel is to stand firm and separate from the world. The Deal of the Century will want to draw Israel fully into the world and separate them from God! Remember that Islam is forever advancing. It wants world domination and in particular domination of Israel.
The Deal of the Century will mobilise and facilitate Israel to become a slave of the world and its doomed peace.
God’s deal and the world’s deal:
Will the Deal of the Century affect any of the following, and what are the central issues within God’s covenant promise to Israel?
- God’s deal is eternal and must never be broken.
- God’s deal is to bring peace to Israel, through Messiah.
- God’s deal includes the land of Israel, its borders, the city of Jerusalem and the Jewish people.
- God’s deal is to prepare Israel to take salvation to the world.
Exodus 34:11-14 “Observe what I command you this day. Behold I am driving out from before you the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite. Take heed to yourself, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you are going, lest it be a snare in your midst. You shall destroy their altars, break their sacred pillars and cut down their wooden images, for you shall worship no other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous is a jealous God.”
In the verse above, we see God’s command to drive out various nations; some are the originators of the Palestinian people today. The instruction of God is not to make any sort of covenant with them!
Isaiah 9:16 “The leaders of this people (Philistines – modern Palestinians) cause them to err, and those who are led by them are destroyed.”
The deal will divide the land:
To appease and please the devil and his hordes, The Deal of the Century will have to include dividing some sections of the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem.
This does NOT bring peace but war and judgement!
Joel 3:2 “I will gather all nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat; I will enter into judgement with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land.”
Daniel 11:39 “Thus he (antichrist) shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god (Satan), which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory and he shall cause them to rule over many and divide the land for gain.”
Deuteronomy 27:17 “Cursed is the one who moves his neighbour’s landmark. And all the people say, amen!”
Leaders of the world:
If you are a leader of any sort in any nation, please read the following verses and note that they are addressed to you. Note and understand the severity of God upon you, and please note that you will pay for your choices, especially, but not exclusively, relating to Israel.
Job 12:24-25 “He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, and makes them wander in a pathless wilderness. They grope in the dark without the light; he makes then stagger like a drunken man.”
Revelation 20:12-15 “I saw the dead small and great, standing before God and books were opened, and another book was opened which is the Lamb’s Book of Life, and the dead were judged according to their works, by the things that were written in the books...And anyone not found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.”
Isaiah 14:9 “Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming. It stirs up the dead for you. All the chiefs of the earth it has raised up from their thrones and all the kings of the nations.”
Isaiah 24:21 “It shall come to pass in that day that the Lord will punish on high the host of the exalted ones, and on the earth the kings of the earth.”
Jeremiah 50:41-42 “Behold, a people shall come from the north, and a great nation and many kings shall be raised up from the ends of the earth. They shall hold the bow and lance; they are cruel and shall show no mercy. Their voice shall roar like the sea; they shall ride on horses set in array, like a man of battle, against you O daughter of Babylon.”
Lamentations 4:12-14 “The kings of the earth and all the inhabitants of the world, would not have believed that the adversary and the enemy could enter the gates of Jerusalem – because of the sins of her prophets and the iniquities of her priests, who shed in her midst the blood of the just. They wandered blind in the streets...”
Zechariah 12:2-3 “Behold I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem and it will happen in that day, that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples. All who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.”
Political leaders of the world, here is the crown and pinnacle of your creation and your doings. You are the cause of this:
Isaiah 24: 4-6 “The earth mourns and fades away; the world languishes and fades away. The haughty people of the earth languish. The earth is also defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinances, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore the curse has devoured the earth, and those who dwell in it are desolate...”
Part of the need for a Jewish state is for them to have a secure place away from anti-Semitism and domination by Islam, and the ways of the world.
Isaiah 51:18 “There is no one to guide her among all the sons she has brought forth; nor is there any who takes her by the hand among all the sons she has brought up.”
The constitution of a nation is an insight into its foundation. Here are two real examples of the opening preamble of two of them: ●“In submission to Almighty God, we declare that...” ●“We the people declare that...”
It’s interesting that most nations that have had a godly national constitution of some sort, have historically been pro-Israel, and the others not. It all has spiritual roots!
Right now, before it all begins, true Christians are God’s peace offering to Israel!
I hope you see why the peace of Jerusalem is only possible with the Prince of Peace resident and not the Peace deal of the Century!
The peace Deal of the Century is way to war, wrath, tribulation and judgement.
This is the end of man’s best efforts, -all cursed just like Adam’s best effort!
►I and The Prophetic Scroll, again affirm our commitment to stand with and for Israel in these dangerous days ahead.
Isaiah 49:3 “He said to me, ‘You are My servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.’”
Amos 9:15 “I will plant them (Jews) in their land, and they shall no longer be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord your God.”
Ezekiel 13:18 “...Will you hunt the souls of My people and keep yourselves alive?”
I took this picture of an immature crowned eagle in a forest nearby, and mixed it with a baobab tree.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
