►Regular readers of The Prophetic Scroll are hereby informed that this Covid19 virus will not come near you. I and my prayer team are praying this as a specific prayer of protection over you.
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
This verse, below was given to me by our Lord in December last year to give to you as the crowning verse for 2020. This was just before the corona-virus became a world pandemic:
The heading is, “Babylon humiliated.” End-time Babylon is the modern world system:
Isaiah 47:10-11 “You have trusted in your wickedness. You have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you; You have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one besides me.’ Therefore evil shall come upon you and you shall not know from where it arises, and trouble shall fall upon you. You will not be able to put it off, and desolation shall come upon you suddenly.”
Romans 11:15 “If their (Jews) being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be, but life from the dead.”
Hosea 11:10 “They shall walk after the Lord. He will roar like a lion. When He roars then His sons shall come trembling from the west.”
1 Kings 8:56 “Blessed be the Lord, who gives rest to His people Israel, according to all that He promised. Not one word of His good promise, which He has promised through His servant Moses, has failed.”
Psalm 57:1 “Be merciful to me O God, for My soul trusts in You; and in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, until these disasters have passed.”
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.
22nd May 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
In honour of Jerusalem Day (21st – 22nd May)
This is the day set aside to mark the end of the Six-Day War in which Jerusalem was liberated from Arab occupiers and united as one Israeli city again.
Let’s expand on the familiar verse, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:”
Psalm 122:2-3 “Our feet are standing within your gates, Jerusalem – Jerusalem, built as a city compact together.”
●The term “compact together” means joined in solid unity, or “knitting together in unity, with no divisions or separations.
Psalm 122:6-7 “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. May they prosper who love you. Peace be (Shalom) within her walls.”
●The root word of ‘Shalom’ also means “complete”, or “paid for.”
This reuniting and “joining together” of Jerusalem in “completeness” took place as a result of the Six Day war in 1967.
Do you see that praying for the peace of Jerusalem includes praying against her being divided, and for her being united! Praying for the peace of Jerusalem means praying for the return of the Prince of peace, which occurs as the Jews recognise their Messiah.
Marked by the beast or by God!
As we get closer to the coming of the Lord it is most important to be right with God, right in heart and right with doctrine and truth. The spiritual environment is becoming super-charged. The forces of error are more dangerous now than ever before.
We need all our defences, gifts of the Spirit and God-given knowledge and wisdom. Error is a spirit that opens the door for more error and attacks from the enemy.
With the cross removed from society, truth is obscured and deception rules. People believe that what they believe is the truth because of their self-importance.
You need to be spiritually vigilant, in heart and discerning in doctrine. Of course you need to be right in the application of these things too. But with the leading of the Spirit of God – you are safe.
The world today is a dangerous place.
Be careful of those with a hidden agenda. Be careful of the mass-media, politicians and the authorities. They are all needed instruments of the new world order, and will soon be employed and empowered by spirits they can’t see.
To introduce the entire antichrist system, these powers must delegitimize the scriptures and replace them with their own ideas.
The control of your health is a powerful way to create subservience.
Are you praying for the kingdom of the world to go back to normal, or for “The kingdom of God to come?” The coming kingdom of God is the only permanent solution to the fall of this world. Don’t think the world is going to get better.
The instruction is to seek the kingdom of God first and not second, or when troubles hit the fan.
When you, a nation, or the world turns from God, and trusts in man, the journey from there on is a downward spiral.
What Satan wants is submission. He wants people to be blind, non-questioning bowing, puppets on a string – another brick in the world’s wall, a cog in the wheel.
Fear of an unknown future causes stress. Knowledge of it releases the stress and brings peace. Man is dependent upon peace and freedom for his sanity. This only comes through repentance and the following of God’s word and ways.
The corona virus has brought out the best in mankind, with many people helping each other, giving and showing much goodwill, but that is not repentance.
Even if a vaccine is found soon, it’s too late to stop the economic and social knock-on effects. The lies and manipulation have done their work. People are now primed to be controlled. They have been primed to accept their fallen, soon coming saviour!
The forces behind the scenes have already got a lot more than their foot in the door. It’s now not a matter of if but when the baby foal runners will give way to the big four riders of the apocalypse.
The mark of the beast:
This mark will only come about in the tribulation period. We may see the construction of it before, but it will only be implemented then.
Many are speaking of it now using fear tactics. Many are afraid they will be fooled into taking it.
There is no fear that you could take the mark. It will appear after the rapture. It requires deliberate worship, so those who take it will know what they are doing. God is not into tricking the innocent.
At this stage we don’t know exactly what it will be. We can assume that it will be connected in some way to tracking people, perhaps a vaccine or some sort of device-less implant. It will be connected to the 666 system and all things related to a new world order, currency, religion, and health system.
The mark of the beast could be some form of mark that identifies you as one who has already received a vaccination. (Revelation 13:16-17 19:20)
Don’t jump to all sorts of conclusions. One thing that makes this coming mark unique is that it will be placed on the forehead or right hand. No vaccination is ever given in the forehead.
I do believe that it will be physical mark of some sort and not just a symbolic metaphor.
The word “mark” is Strong’s G5480 “Charagma.” Meanings: Imprint, stamped, branded, carved.
The mark of God:
God’s tribulation saints are given a mark – the mark of the Lamb (Revelation 7:3; 14:1)
It is the 144,000 of Israel who are sealed with this mark on the forehead.
But we too are “marked” and sealed by God. This mark or seal for us is not necessarily physical, but it is stronger and more powerful than all the forces of darkness combined!
Ephesians 1:13 “In Him you also trusted after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of salvation, in whom also having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.” (2 Corinthians 1:22)
Revelation 22:3-4 “There shall be no more curse; but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. They shall see His face and His name shall be on their foreheads.”
Note well that we have the name of the living God on our foreheads. The unsaved will have the mark, the number of his name – 666 on theirs!
When we chose our Lord, He chooses us to be eternally set apart for great glory!
God is using these troubles cause us to grow in holiness.
Holiness is directly related to looking for the coming of the Lord (Titus 2:13) Expectation is a powerful force creating holiness.
Isaiah 29:18-20 “In that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book and the eyes of the blind shall see out of the obscurity of darkness. The humble shall increase their joy in the Lord, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel, for the terrible one is brought to nothing...”
Ephesians 5:13-14 “All things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Awake, you who sleep; arise from the dead, and Messiah will give you light.”
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!
