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

Shabbat Shalom to all!
War drums and trumpets:
Firstly I would like to really thank all those who have recently donated to this ministry. I must say I was amazed at the incredible response from so many. Thank you very much for your blessing to the kingdom of God, above all.
There’s a risk in giving out names that some will feel left out if I don’t name them. So please know that you are all being thanked and will be rewarded. You have encouraged me greatly with your gratitude. You are special! We go on to ever increasing glory!
I give you my assurance that I will continue to give you my best, in spite of wanting to go and live under a tree in the desert sometimes.
Please keep The Prophetic Scroll in your prayer, in that it stays open and unrestricted in these dangerous days. Also keep it as your essential go-to place for what is really happening, and for your deep spiritual growth.
The rumbling war drums:
Drum beats have many classifications. We have blues beat, disco beat, the jazz swing, the motown groove and more. But we also have a particular drum beat of war and battle. The drums of war actually originate from the repeating drum beat of the shaman or witchdoctor.
A certain drum beat would mean either dance or get ready for war. The drum beat would stimulate and strengthen the body and forge a sense of unity by the beat. They would unite the human and the spirit world. The drums of war were also referred to as the drums of death, especially when combined with trumpets.
I said all of that just for this: Can you hear the drums of war rolling? Can you hear the crescendo of drums and trumpets of great conflict echoing through the atmosphere?
This is where we are now. The drums and trumpets are only for those with ears to hear. Others would be wise to listen to those with ears to hear.
The terrible war machine of the nations is warming up to take control of the sleeping nations, who are led by the aged and wrinkled of mind, the pacifists and the true enemies of real liberty and freedom.
Russia is beating the war-drums as she threatens Israel with attack for attacking Iranian targets in Syria. Syria is beating new war drums covered with the ash of long-standing war. Iran is beating the war drum against Israel again, again, again!
Biden and his party are asleep to it all, including the blonde half-baked fairy from hell whose grand burning desire is to change the gender of kids.
It’s not just the US. Europe is worse in many areas.
It seems that insanity has suddenly been let out of the cage and is infecting the world so fast. Here is one of the succinct verses about those who have forsaken the Lord:
Deuteronomy 28:28 “The Lord will strike you with madness and blindness and confusion of mind.”
In the old days we would fight over God’s creative beauty - a girl, and the girls would fight over us – Oh the good ole-days!
The bigger wars are fought over property, religion, political systems and the like. But there is really only one war that is of importance and that is the war to eliminate God’s beautiful creative purpose for Israel. It comes in many guises, but that is the underlying reason. It’s purely spiritual. It is the devil against God, at the end of the day.
So now we sit on the brink of war – the big one! Drums are rolling, trumpets are blowing and madmen from hell are arising, struck with blinding confusion and their weapons of annihilation tucked into their big-bird, metal wings.
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall; Humpty Dumpty had a great fall, because an atom bomb blew him to smithereens. And all the king’s horses and all the king’s men took seven years to clean up the remnants of poor Humpty. What fun!
I can hear the drums of drama but I also hear the trumpet calling me to go and live under a tree in the desert! (Move over lions.)
The great war for God’s son – Israel, is prophesied. (Exodus 4:22-23) It’s all getting pretty hot in here. You need to know these things. You need to know why all things and people of God are targets.
People with no knowledge of the living God are fools, and easy to manipulate and turn into cannon fodder for every dumb gun in town.
You need to be anchored in the truth.
True living is living in truth.
If you try to befriend Satan and appease him, and walk in peace with him, you will automatically, by default, set yourself up as an enemy of God and you will pay the price!
Yes, Israel will miss it again and fall under punishment again, but the most stupid thing you can do is come against Israel in the bigger, overall picture.
Biden prepares to “kill” the Second Amendment right to bear arms in the US. Israel observes and compares this to Haman’s actions to try to destroy the Jews. Biden befriends the enemies of the west and of Israel in Yemen and Iran steps right in!
There was a time when God overlooked the ignorance of stupid, dumb politicians and people, but that day is gone (Acts 17:30, Acts 14:16)
Here’s a verse that should blow a lot more than your socks off:
Esther 9:1-2 “On the day that the enemies of the Jews had hoped to overpower them, the opposite occurred, in that the Jews themselves overpowered those who hated them...No one could withstand them because the fear of them fell upon all people.”
Take note, I say again take note, of the gravity of this verse above!!
The enemies of God and his son Israel, are united under Satan. The political parties, churches, inter-faith organisations and false religions of the world already have an unwritten unity between them – a hell bound unity!
The unity between true born-again believers is a unity based on truth and not lovey-dovey feelings.
As a believer, your culture must change! Your character and your personality must change as you grow in God. If not you will end up going with the flow of the wind.
Edition 464: April 9th 2019
A world de-wormed:
These are words of life!
Babies have to be de-wormed sometimes, and so do dogs.
Psalm 22: 6-7 “I (the Lord) am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men and despised of the people. All those who see Me laugh Me to scorn...”
The word “worm” in the verse above is the original word “towla.” It is a specific worm found in the Middle East. In pupa from it clings to a tree and as it dies on the tree, it turns pure white. It was also used to dye very expensive cloth, a unique, rich crimson colour which oozed from it when crushed.
As you see this is no ordinary worm! Psalm 22 above is rich with descriptions of the crucifixion of our Lord, and these details of the “towla’ are pretty spectacular in type!
Yeshua, our Lord died for and paid for the sins of the world on the cross. (1 John 2:2) The unsaved world has to actively receive it for it to become personal salvation. But the price was paid for all.
There is a degree of rub-off in a nation relating to how much of the things of God they allow into society. This causes them to be a nation under God or not.
►You don’t want to de-worm the world of this worm, tuned King of kings!
De-worming the world of this worm is de-wording the world!
Hebrews 10:29 “How much worse punishment do you suppose will be for him who thought it worthy to trample the Son of God underfoot, and who counted the blood of the covenant a common thing and insulted the Spirit of grace?”
Isaiah 59:4-10 “No one calls for justice, nor does any plead for truth. They trust in empty words and speak lies to conceive evil and bring forth iniquity...They hatch viper’s eggs and he who eats them dies...Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they have not known...They have made themselves crooked paths, where there is no peace...Therefore they look for light but there is darkness for brightness, they walk in blackness...as dead men in desolate places.”
Isaiah 59:14 “...The truth is fallen in the street and cannot enter.”
Isaiah 5:20-23 “Woe to those who put good for evil and evil for good; who put darkness for light and light for darkness...Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes...Who justify the wicked for a bribe, and take away justice for the righteous man.”
Isaiah 10:1 “Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees, who write misfortune, which they have prescribed, themselves.”
Jeremiah 7:28 “You shall say to them, ‘This is the nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God nor receive correction. Truth has perished and been cut off from their mouth.’”
These verses above, when strung together, paint a terrible picture. It is a picture of the entirety of today’s world stripped of the things of God! How accurate the Bible is!
Remember my verse for the year: “When you forsake the word, you praise the wicked!”
Prophecy spells it all out:
Bible prophecy is thrilling. It takes you on a wonderful journey to great glory. It speaks now about now, and the near, and the distant future. It warns rebukes, encourages, strengthens, guides and sets the heart of man on fire, giving great, valuable wisdom. Without it you are thin ice!
The stupid, intellectual elite in the nations of the world have tried hard to remove the word of God from society and public life. It is the main gospel message of salvation that is under attack, simply because the god of this world does not want people getting saved and leaving his evil kingdom.
But it is also Bible prophecy that the devil’s world hates, because it plots the course of all things, including the demise of the devil, sin, evil and all enemies of God. It gives light and sight and shows what to avoid, and where to go, and what is coming and when.
Bible prophecy spells out the failure of man to save himself, and bring world peace to the planet in turmoil. (Revelation 12:12)
Bible prophecy gives us hope, sustains us, motivates us and fills our lives with purpose.
I expect that very soon we will see “multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision” because of the great shaking that is beginning now. (Joel 3:14)
Yes, many will remain blind and many will become outright enemies of God and His people, but exiting times are here!
As the turmoil in the world grows, you can grow in turmoil too, or you can see the world as “crucified to you”, and let it grow strangely dim as you grow brighter.
We lose interest in the world when we see that it is dead. It too loses interest in us when it sees us as crucified with Messiah. (Galatians 2:20)
Only those in darkness continue to live according to self and self’s reasoning in this world.
Do you think you will be rewarded in eternity for living for yourself? You have no chance!
One of the greatest terrors for the unsaved is that God knows their future. He knows exactly who will turn to Him for salvation and who will not!
Be careful of agreement with the world’s god and its voice, the media! There is unseen power in unity and agreement. (Genesis 11:6) The agreement of silence on many of the world’s major issues by much of the church, demonstrates spinelessness, but it does not exonerate it from blame.
Agreement with the world in many respects is agreement with hell.
The world is preparing its own destruction:
How to send the world the hell: Make them stupid. The word of God makes you wise. So, remove it and you become stupid, even as an intellectual. Perhaps you don’t know it, but clever, unsaved people go to hell, with clever, unsaved kings and those in authority.
Remove sin, even in word, and there is no need for a Saviour. What do you need to be saved from? The world thinks that they are okay and because human rights have been elevated above God, almost anything is acceptable.
Trying to make truth fit our modern culture is a minefield. You can’t do it. One has to give!
The light of the world and of Israel:
The world’s light is growing strangely dim as more and more of it is extinguished by society at large.
The light of the believer will never go out, and the light of Israel is about to be turned on brighter than ever!
Isaiah 62:1 “For Zion’s sake I will not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her righteousness goes forth like brightness and her salvation as a lamp that burns.”
Isaiah 42:16 “I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known, I will make darkness light before them and crooked places straight.”
Micah 7:8-9 “Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; when I fall I will arise, when I sit in darkness the Lord will be a light to me...He will bring me forth to the light, and I will see His righteousness.
Proverbs 4:18-19 “The path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day. The way of the wicked is like darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble.”
►I have constructed the following sentence purely from Bible verses strung together:●With God removed, the world praises the wicked. ●When there is no knowledge of God in the land, there is no more restraint and the land mourns. ●From the wicked their light is withheld. ●There is no peace for the wicked. ●The intensions of the heart of man are all deceitful and wicked. ●The world stumbles ahead in blindness. ●There is no more horror at the wickedness of the wicked.
The myth of man:
The myth of man is that he can save and manage himself! His own ways are manifest in the fruits of modern unsaved man. They are all the fruits of the law of sin and death. The fruits of Satan are “killing, stealing, destroying, lying and deceiving.”
The myth of man is a mystery. (2 Thessalonians 2:7) You can only see the mystery, when in Him!
People always look for acceptance and affirmation. They look inwardly and find only turmoil within. That is because fallen man is one with Satan in spirit. But when the true, practising Christian looks inwardly he finds the God of love who has accepted him through the forgiveness of the cross.
The problem for the unsaved is that they can search as deeply into themselves for answers as they like, but will always end up finding the deceiver. They can look outwardly to all sources in the world and will always find the deception of the deceiver, the god of the world.
The Bible believing Christian looks inwardly and finds our Lord enthroned on his life. He looks upward and finds all the glories of the kingdom of God.
Unsaved man cannot even see the kingdom of God. (John 3:3)
The myth of humanism says man is inherently good. If so the world would be a better place! If so, sin would be good, because sin resides in the heart of man. If so, man would be able to get better by looking internally to cure his psychological stress and anxiety.
►Secular psychology prescribes pills to get psychologically better! God prescribes the cross of Calvary, His word and repentance for all sin.
We need our living Saviour and His living doctrine to know and see sin and righteousness.
God’s anger at sin fell upon Yeshua on the cross. If you remove the cross, God’s anger must fall on you! David said: “Against You alone have I sinned.” (Psalm 51:4) Remove “You” and sin must fall upon you without “You” of Calvary as Saviour.
Why socialism is godless?
As the god of the world, de-worms the world and eliminates the things of God from society, a sick, diseased world full of maggots comes in. A new world order called humanistic socialism comes in.
The goal of socialism is control and domination. Socialism violates the laws of liberty and freedom. It also violates the law of sowing and reaping. Always bear in mind that the end result of Satan’s control, is to deliver you to hell.
Socialism in its various forms is man’s best effort to save himself .It replaces freedom with equality. It ‘elevates’ man to the lowest common denominator. It makes man a god, blind to god and God.
People have a built in need to be to be dependent on something, some system or someone. Socialism creates this dependence.
Internationalism, globalism and socialism (all linked) brings everyone down under the spirit of Satan and sin. God lifts us to the highest and seats us in heavenly places, holy, righteous and making us pure.
Religion without the true, living God is a dead, cursed, mechanism of control and domination, just what socialism needs.
Why would Satan be pro the interfaith movement as part of his one-world order? Every religion in the world can quite easily unite, except for the true born-again, blood-washed and cross-forgiven Christian. They are exclusive and forever separate from all religions.
Many “Christian” religions with the cross sidelined, can easily fit in with all religions. They are all counterfeits and born of Satan in the first place. They are his puppets. When they come together, they form a united front, which is easy for the devil to control.
Many churches are enemies of the cross. (Philippians 3:18)
A godless world in psychological turmoil:
Most people are feelings orientated and never go to the root of their problems. Psychologists are forever dealing with feelings (fruits) and the world’s opinions.
The self-life camouflages the sin-nature which is in its heart. It hides the enemy within.
►If you can’t see God because He has been removed from society, you can’t see the enemy either!
When you forsake the law of God, (His word) you are a law unto yourself and “yourself” is actually full of the law of sin and death, so how can you even see your problem, never mind fix it!
Pure unadulterated truth will corner you and then bring you down to your knees; then it will fill you with God and lift you up high, to the very throne of God. Have you been cornered and floored by God?
The problem of modern society is that it has been de-wormed and de-worded. It has stabbed itself in both eyes, and shot itself in both feet, and then in the head!
When you remove God from society, you also remove the very conscience of society. Have you notice the gradual change? There was once a time when people would fear getting caught in some sin or crime. Now, there is no more shame anymore!
It is primarily the liberal left and intellectual elite that have cast down the word of God in the nations and destroyed the virtues of God. Did you know that there were no liberal lefties in God’s workers?
The liberal left worldwide, US Democratic Party, British Labour Party, and others, together with their umbilicaly connected mess-media, have shot themselves in the foot for one big reason: They have underestimated how many Christians there are in their lands, with godly influence.
►They have not realised that you can’t kill God or His word! They will be devoured by the Lion of all lions! They think this Lion is a little harmless worm, or a fairy with a gruff voice!
The reality of the saved, righteous man is evident in his fruits, which are the fruits of the Spirit of life in Him. These godly fruits rub off and transmit into society and into a nation under God.
Today left wing and right wing politics are becoming polarised. They are both of the spirit of the world! Personally, I’m not a left winger, right winger or middle winger, I’m a God winger! That’s where the good fruits are.
We are to take every thought captive. (2 Corinthians 10:5) That is freedom and victory. And let me tell you something: It is not difficult to radically change your thinking.
Unity with the ungodly is easy - just cast down the word of God and your turmoil will begin. Once we die, or the Lord comes, we can’t go back and change things. Our eternal destiny is set, signed, sealed and delivered! Don’t underestimate the gravity of that!
If our Lord does not come first, we will all croak, (that does not mean standing in a corner making a noise like a frog.) We are getting older and hopefully wiser, but we will not go on forever in this life! Every day we live, we live for the potential to add height and stature to our eternal status.
Many years ago, I used to be a skydiver having great fun jumping out of aeroplanes. Now when I pull into a parking lot and jump out of my car and remain in the upright position – I have done well, and have more time to glorify our Lord.
Eliminating God’s influence from your life is the worst, most dangerous thing you could ever do. It may give you a fools euphoria and exuberance on your way to hell.
►I have put together the following two sections. They are pure verses with no commentary. It is very good to read them just as they are, one after the next, because they paint a very clear picture:
The nature of the World: ●It has a spirit. (1Corinthians 2:12) ●It cannot receive the Spirit of truth. (John 14:7) ●Its works are evil. (John 7:7) ●It lies entirely under the power of the devil. (1 John 5:19) ●It hates Messiah and Christians. (John 15:18) ●It is at enmity with God. (James 4:4) ●It is filled with tribulations. (John 16:33) ●It lives but is dead. (1Timothy 5:6) ●It is full of corruption. (2 Peter 1:4) ●It has a doomed philosophy and traditions. (Colossians 2:8) ●The world does not know us. (1 John 3:1) ●It is on course. (Ephesians 2:2) ●Its wisdom is foolishness. (1Corinthians 3:19) ●It has been judged. (John 12:31) ●As you gain the world, you lose your soul. (Matthew 16:26) ●The world is crucified to us. (Galatians 6:14)
Our response to the world: ●We receive not the spirit of the world. (1 Corinthians 2:12) ●We overcome the world. (1John 5:4) ●We escape the world’s corruption. (2 Peter 1:4) ●We love not the world, nor its things. (1John2:15) ●We hate our lives in the world. (John 12:25) ●We are in the world but not of it. (John 17:14) ●We have no friendship with it. (James 4:4) ●We live as exiles in the world. (1 Peter 2:11) ●Greater is He in us than he in the world. (1 John 4:4) ●We use the world, but do not abuse it. (1 Corinthians 7:31) ●We are not conformed to the world. (Romans 12:2) ●We pray not for the world. (John 17:9) ●For God so loved the world that He sent His Son. Salvation must be received or hell awaits; as revealed. (John 3:16-19)
I received an email from a reader recently. She said that she was “so done with the world.”
We are seeing the great push back of the ways of God like never before. The world, to its own terrible detriment, is de-worming itself of the Worm (Towla) of all life and filling itself with dirty rotten maggots of death and defeat.
Psalm 73:6 “Pride serves as their necklace; violence covers them like a garment.”
God is not going to save and redeem this world. We are called to come out of it because it is soon going to be destroyed in judgement – just like Lot had to get out.
We are to judge ourselves now so that we will not be judged or condemned with the world.
I took the background picture in the Mnweni region of the Drakensberg Mountains from a chopper and the black egret and merged them. (Mnweni means, “place of needles.”)
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
