|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.|

The spread-rate of the coronavirus is starting to turn down as can be seen in this graph for the US. What adds more weight to it is the fact that this is a repeating pattern in many other places. Its early days, and it is still spreading, but it seems to have peaked.
- Some tribulation verses imply that people will carry on as normal with marrying, commerce and industry and the like. This is not a picture of lockdown!
- Gordon Brown calls on world leaders to form a “temporary” world government to resolve the medical and economic crisis.
- Now that Netanyahu is finally confirmed as the President of Israel for the next 18 months, expect some action against Palestinian aggression.
- Jews and Bible believing (evangelical) Christians are being blamed for Covid 19 by an article in The New York Times albeit indirectly.
- Two nights ago I was awakened suddenly at 2.30am by a loud sharp alarm bell of sorts going off. It was nothing I had heard before, or was from the area. It was so loud and vivid it shook me. I have had a similar experience before with a trumpet blast. I’m no dramatist with things like this. The sense I got in my spirit was one of urgency!

Shabbat Shalom to all!
When the pressure is on:
What do you really do in thought and action when the pressure is really on and all things begin to shake?
It’s like the good -old toothpaste tube law: When you squeeze it, what’s inside comes out. This is when you see what’s really in your heart! “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” (Matthew 12:34)
Out of the heart under strain do you hear the mouth speak, shout, screech, swear, stress out, or be silent? Is your thinking stained, strained and stretched by stress?
Pressure sharpens your focus! It can cause you to curse or cause incredible blessing, if you change your focus to the things of God. Yes, a virus can change your focus to victory.
Tests create endurance, or in some cases cause people to give up.
Today we have a multitude of spiritually superficial, shallow shepherds, blind as a bat and deaf as a doornail to the voice of God, and with the mouth of many parrots leading their blind flock.
A lot of what you believe is related to the spiritual input from your spiritual fathers are and who you hang around with and identify with. In this day, you need to make sure who your spiritual friends are! You need to forsake many, and gather new ones.
I would feel a lot safer learning from a hell-fire and brimstone preacher of the cross than the modern, be blessed, be prosperous, be happy, positive-only preachers.
To construct this modern positive-only gospel, you have to remove all the “hard sayings and severity of the gospel. Their gospel becomes a half-baked ear-tickling tickle.
Endurance produces character. This is why a lot of the modern church is so spineless.
Some churches, you dare not walk into. They need a big sign outside saying “Enter at your own risk” or better still, “Danger, do not enter”
James 1:3 “Know that the testing of your faith produces patience (Lit=endurance) “
When the pressure is on beware of the pressure to err! Many times pressure causes you to run away and take the easy, wide road with the multitudes. That’s when you fall into error and then fear. When you have decided to take the easy erroneous road, don’t think God will help you along.
Isaiah 30:28 “His breath is like an overflowing stream, which reaches up to the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of futility; and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err.”
If your heart is not right with God, why should He lead you into all truth? The verse above applies to the world, but the principle is universal.
We are seeing a massive rise in deceptive teachings particularly relating to Israel, to the pre-tribulation rapture and the tribulation period.
As God prepares to move in new ways with Israel, there will be alarming and dramatic signs. The thrilling sounds of the shofar are shattering the midnight sounds of silence over Jerusalem even right now. (Literally!) The alarm of awakening is sounding; the ancient walls of Jerusalem are vibrating and reverberating with the breath of the Lion of the tribe of Judah – arising ready to roar onto the stage!
This is the time to reach out to the Jews with the good news of salvation in their Jewish Messiah – our Messiah. This is the time to throw out and destroy the obstacles to them coming in to the kingdom, created by the church.
If God has finished with the Jews, as many teach, how do you explain the great regathering to the land? Do you think that is just God having fun, or that it’s just meaningless coincidence?
In this day you are in trouble if you do not know how to discern the voice of truth.
You cannot obey the voice of the Lord if you can’t hear the voice of the Lord. The voice of the letter of the word is not the voice of the Lord. It is dead letter and produces death, legalism and bondage. (2 Corinthians 3:6, Galatians 5:9)
These are very dangerous days, not so much because of any virus, but because required repentance is being ignored and the source of “truth” for the people is the devil’s deceivers – the media.
A good starting presumption is not to trust the mass-media. Regard it with automatic suspicion. Obviously I’m not talking about a hard news event, but all their “exalted” opinion pieces.
Isaiah 2:12 “The day of the Lord of hosts shall come upon everything proud and lofty, upon everything lifted up.”
What follows is some of the sermon or book titles of my own spiritual fathers. I cut my spiritual teeth on this lot, starting in the late 70s. Some of these great men of God would be scorned and rejected today. But their work stands with transforming power, for the few that find them.
These wonderful discipleship teachers of old, pulled the rug out from under you, condemned the hell out of you, and often times left you floored, in surrender to our Lord, in a manner that caused you to be so very thankful! I would trust my life with them!
My aim is to show that just in the titles alone, you can see that they are of another glorious world: (My library contains thousands more.)
Derek Prince: ●Fierce times are coming. ●I will shake all things – the nations, the church and Israel. ●Facing the last days without fear. ●Living in a world falling apart. ●Evil forces of the end times. ●The Spirit of Antichrist ●Disasters that are about to come upon the earth. ●Facing God’s judgment.
Watchman Nee: ●Not I but Christ. ●The messenger of the cross. ● A living sacrifice. ●The spirit of judgement. ●Salvation of the soul. ●Love not the world.
Charles Finney: ●How to be free from the world. ●Victory over the world.
AW Tozer: ●That incredible Christian. ●The divine conquest. Gems from Tozer.
Looking at the titles should give you an idea of the content. How many of these titles do you hear preached today? By the way I have ‘devoured’ these books, tapes and teachings and thousand more about eight times each. I have about 300,000 pages of hand written notes from them.
Be blessed as you prepare your heart mind and soul for the glorious appearing of our Lord – soon and very soon!
Edition 502: December 31st 2019
Words for the year:
These are words of real life!
Firstly, may I wish all readers a blessed and glorious new year.
This edition is about words I believe will apply and relate dramatically to the year ahead in some prophetic way. The verses I’ve used are relevant and from the Lord. These are exciting times – we are on the brink of eternal victory!
The word for the year 2019 was: Proverbs 28:4 “Those who forsake the law (word) will praise the wicked, but such as keep the word will contend with them.”
If ever there was a true word for the year that was it! We saw the values and virtues of the word cast down and rampant evil flood into every area of life like never before.
Will we get through the year 2020?
I don’t think we will make it through the year, but I’m not suggesting that is a word from the Lord (yet). That’s what I sense now. We will see as we go. I will not get ahead of things, nor will I capitulate to the error of “no one can know the time.”
I will not follow or repeat what others say in this regard, especially those with a track record of failed predications, and those seeking superiority through their manipulation.
Like never before it is time to know who you can trust. Know your worthy teachers.
The Prophetic Scroll (TPS) will always put God’s glory first. TPS is enslaved to Spirit led truth and the narrow road to glory.
Stay tuned right here.
The cross will put you on the narrow road, and make you an enemy of those on the wide road. Rejoice in that!
2020 – Generally speaking:
▪This will be a time of all things speeding up, being stepped up, and being magnified and intensified.
▪As our Lord draws nearer, so His provision, security and safety will be available for His people. His fruit of holiness will be seen more and more in those who are His.
▪As Satan draws nearer his works of deception will intensify in his people. His fruits of sin will be seen more and more in his people.
▪People will cast off restraint like never before. (Hosea 4:1-2) A new hatred will emerge for all things of God, including His people (both Israel and the church). Hate speech will become anything that does not conform to the world’s view of a common human good.
▪We will see the war in Syria finally reach its prophesied Damascus conclusion and the war of Gog and Magog get underway.
▪We will see global climate change become a hot, politically charged, rotten potato.
▪People-power and mob-rule will intensify worldwide and be crushed in many nations.
▪Natural upheavals and disasters will increase in intensity and frequency.
▪We will see the US and the UK stand with Israel in her time of trouble.
▪Israel will finally get a prophetically important new government.
▪Anti-Semitism will rise in the world, and in the church, like in the days prior to the Holocaust.
▪The peace “Deal of Century” will be released with a response that will lead to conflict.
▪There will be an outpouring of truth and of error, of angelic work and of demons.
▪There will be peace that surpasses understanding for some, and great stress, torment and despair.
▪There will be extreme sin and righteousness, wheat, tares, tears, sheep and goats.
▪There will be betrayers betraying and prodigals returning.
This will be the year of glory and terror!
►The glory of the Lord in His people is going to be revealed.
Romans 8:18 “I consider the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”
►The terror of the Lord in the world is going to be revealed.
2 Corinthians 5:11 “Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men...”
Glory and terror in the church:
The glory of the Lord will grow substantially in the church on the narrow road. This will be the church of the few. It will be the remnant church.
Colossians 3:4 “When Messiah who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.”
The word of God will be welcomed, received, studied, exalted and uplifted as the remnant church’s “necessary food.” (Job 23:12, Jeremiah 15:16)
The true, on fire, Spirit led believer will maintain his anchor in the Lord. His “template” will be the Spirit-led word of God. That will be his role model, his blueprint and pathfinder.
Psalm 16:11 “You shall show me the path of life. In your presence is fullness of joy, at your right hand are pleasures forever more.”
Psalm 5:12 “You O Lord will bless the righteous. With favour you will surround him as with a shield.”
The church on the narrow road will remain a friend of Israel, even as this is tested. The contrast between the churches who stand with God’s plan for Israel and those who don’t will become like bright light and deep darkness.
Let me do a detour here and mention this:
Churches reveal their identity visually as well as in word. You can walk into almost any church building and tell what sort of church it is by the decor. We as Christians are called to make the Jews jealous, especially now as the veil of blindness upon their eyes is being removed more and more.
Tragically, some churches have more in character with Babylonian and Roman customs as seen in their decor. Thankfully, there is a growing number who display various Hebraic items as well as Christian decor.
Churches which recognise that they are born out of Israel and our Jewish Messiah are far more open to being pro-Israel and visually Hebraic, but not Babylon / Rome churches.
Don’t go overboard with these things, but they do carry some weight.
Okay, back to the main subject:
There is already a growing terror in much of the church. It is going to intensify.
So many churches use the things of the world as their template, and yardstick. They mingle and mix the ways of the world into their ways and doctrine.
The majority of churches are already on the wide road to destruction. They have removed the centrality of the cross. Their gospel is of “another Jesus” – an all accepting and accommodating Babylonian Jesus. (Ho, ho, ho!)
The removal of the cross, removes the fear of God, and the awesome terror of God. It casts out the “hard sayings” and the “severity of God” in favour of mixture with the world.
Jeremiah 5:21-22 “Hear this now O foolish people, without understanding, who have eyes and do not see and ears and do not hear. ‘Do you not fear Me?’ says the Lord. Will you not tremble at My presence...But the people have a defiant and rebellious heart. They have revolted and departed.”
Jeremiah 13:15-17 "Hear and give ear; do not be proud, for the Lord has spoken. Give glory to the Lord your God before He causes darkness, and before your feet stumble on the dark mountains, and while you are looking for light, He turns it into the shadow of death and makes it dense darkness. If you will not hear, My soul will weep in secret for your pride; My eyes will weep bitterly and run down with tears, because the Lord’s flock has been taken captive.”
Pressure on pastors to compromise, will reveal what they’re made of, and who the counterfeits are.
Witchcraft, sorcery of many types, addictions and drug usage will be a fast-growing plague in the church worldwide.
The words of the false prophets in 2020:
We have far too many false teachers and prophets in the church toady. It is going to get a whole lot worse – quickly. Satan knows that he can dupe and deceive unarmed Christians with his authority. It’s plain simple logic that if Satan’s time is running out fast, he will intensify his works. (Revelation 12:12)
Psalm 56:5 “All day they twist my words; all their thoughts are against me for evil.
Jeremiah 23:21-22 “I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran. I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. If they had stood in My counsel and had caused My people to hear My words, then they would have turned them from their evil ways and doings.”
The true prophets and analysts of the prophetic word, will come under attack by those who do not “love the truth” deeply and unreservedly.
Jeremiah 18:18 “They said, ‘Come let us devise plans against Jeremiah; for the law shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come and let us attack him with the tongue, and let us not give heed to any of his words.’”
This will be the year of the false prophets. It will be a year of new, true signs and wonders and great deceptive, false signs that will sweep many away.
Psalm 36:1-2 “Concerning the transgression of the wicked: There is no fear of God before his eyes. He flatters himself in his own eyes.”
The terror of the world:
We are now very close to the dawn of the seven-year tribulation period for the world. The true church on the narrow road will not go through the tribulation.
The verse below is of the Lord for the year ahead:
►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; and 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.”
The verse below is a most appropriate verse for 2020. We are already seeing it manifest very powerfully in so many nations:
►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.”
People won’t come to God because He is holy and they love their sin. They will flock to the antichrist because he will be full of sin and require no holiness or repentance.
Any morality goes for the world except biblically induced holiness, because it’s the fruit of another root. The world does not require repentance because it rejects God’s definition of sin. But one thing sin always does is leave you under stress.
The only way you can have real peace is by drawing near to God. The only you can do that is in holiness producing repentance!
Invincible, unconquerable Israel – the Star!
This new-year will be the time the Star of Israel becomes God’s star! Israel, it’s your time!
So many world leaders, rulers, clergy, despots, academics, intellectuals, and other idiots have tried to destroy God’s plans for Israel, by destroying Israel or the Jews or certain aspects of them. They have all failed – every one, and will continue to fail.
The Nazi-prescribed and hated Yellow star, and armbands of identification which Jews were forced to wear under Hitler ahead of the Holocaust, are now long gone. The terrible yellow star has morphed and transformed into the rich cobalt-blue Star of David on the Israeli flag.
The star has come a long way, originating from God’s word, in the design of the crown (calyx) of the pomegranate. (Little golden ones were attached to the priestly garments). Then Satan’s word through Hitler transformed it to a dirty Holocaust-yellow.
But is the fiery hell-red Swastika about to return and bring back the hated yellow star?
Yes it is, but it won’t be in the same form. It is the ancient, age old hatred against Israel by many nations, Islam and much of the church, all led by the father of lies.
For your benefit I’ve put together this brief run through world history looking at this very thing: Note that the former item was or will be destroyed and the latter is of God.
●It’s the Nazi enforced Yellow Star transformed to the Blue Star of the Israeli flag. ●It’s the Swastika superseded by the Menorah. ● Its Hitler’s dead dream of a millennium of millions of Nazi’s, or Israel - numbered as the Sand of the Sea. ●It’s the Third Reich’s failed, final solution -the Holocaust, or Israel – God’ eternal people. ●It’s Islam’s repeated death chants to the Jews, or God’s – “You shall be My light to the Gentiles”. ●It’s the church’s evil replacement theology and God’s acceptance of the Jews and cutting off of those churches. ●It’s a one-world system or God’s One World with Jerusalem as its capital – at peace. ●It’s the antichrist’s false peace covenant and God’s eternal peace covenant with Israel. ●It’s Babylon the Great or the New Jerusalem.
So, church leaders of replacement theology (and the others mentioned above) do you think you can come against and defeat God’s plans and purposes for Israel? You fool of all fools!
The line of words below is the most important line of words you will ever find in the whole world. The working out of these words will be the cause of millions going to hell and millions to heaven. It will be the cause of the greatest wars and calamities ever.
But have a most careful look at the second line of words, and note the difference. That is the line for the churches of replacement theology!
►Israel: ●Elected ●Rebelled ●Rejected ●Regathered ●Repented ●Accepted.
►Israel: ●Elected ●Rebelled ●Rejected ●Israel remains rejected. ●Church replaces Israel.
The churches of entrenched replacement theology are no different to Hitler’s Nazis. Except that they kill the Jews with their words and verses.
The battleground for Israel is about to intensify like never before.
Ezekiel 34:11 “Thus says the Lord God: Indeed I Myself will search for My sheep and seek them out.”
Zephaniah 3:17 “The Mighty One will save you (Israel). He will rejoice over you with gladness. He will quite you in His love. He will rejoice over you with singing.”
Babylon and the New Jerusalem
Many erroneously teach that the original city of Babylon in present day Iraq, will be rebuilt and become the greatest trading, industrial and commercial city in the world. They are wrong. If Babylon the Great (end-time Babylon) is a rebuilt city in Iraq, firstly, it would contradict the verses that say Babylon will never rise again – ever, after her destruction, and secondly, that would mean that real end-time Babylon - the world-system get’s off the hook.
This would also mean that Iraq would have to become a world leader in economic, industrialisation, travel and all the trappings of modernity. That would take 50 years of more to accomplish.
There’s one major issue here and that is that Babylon the Great- the new world-system and its commercial and religious arms, are going to be totally destroyed, never to rise again, like their brother-in-arms, original Babylon.
Here are some of the many characteristics of soon to be destroyed Babylon the Great:
The nations and kings of the earth have drunk the wine of her wrath and committed fornication with her. Her plagues will come in one day. In one hour such great riches came to nothing. In one hour she is made desolate.
Witchcraft and sorcery were tools Babylon and are again tools of the tribulation trade! (Revelation 18:2-3, 7, 17-18.)
Now, I want to take you briefly to the New Jerusalem.
The New Jerusalem:
Do you know what the word, “anisotropic” means? I bet you don’t.
Anisotropic is a fairly new word describing just a handful of specific gems or precious stones. Anisotropic gems have the unique feature of reflecting the full spectrum of the rainbow under a beam of white light.
Amazingly, all twelve of these gems are the very ones – all of them, that make up the foundation stones of the New Jerusalem as revealed in Revelation 21:17-21. As said, this is a new discovery. And here it is in the Bible written ages ago! The mathematical odds of all twelve foundation stones being anisotropic would be astronomical!
But there is more: The Bible shows that the streets of the New Jerusalem are made of, pure gold.
But there is more: The gates of the New Jerusalem are made of pearl, but not lots of pearls, - one giant pearl for each gate! (Revelation 21:21) Have you ever looked at the beauty of a pearl?
But there is more: The city has a river of crystal clear water with proceeding from the throne of God. In the middle of the street and on either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve different fruits every month. Revelation 22:1-2) And there shall be no more curse!” Revelation 22:3)
Okay, so you think that’s all great, but how’s this: This city is about 2,200 miles long wide and high. (Revelation 21:16-17). It would be 600,000 stories high.
Then on top of this, the city is located in heaven now, but will soon “float” down to the earth and hover just above the earth. It will be no UFO! (I think I understand why some people think we’re mad).
But there is more: Yes there is much more that our natural minds can’t even imagine or comprehend the glory that lies ahead.
You see, the problem is that we can only think in terms of what we know now. This city, like our Lord, and like we will be in resurrection, has spectacular trans-physical properties. It’s a lot more than a Superman, super-city!
The New Jerusalem, some wonderful characteristics:
”There will be no more tears, no more death, and no more pain, no more curse.” (Revelation 21:4, 22:3) The city will have no need of the sun because the glory of the Lord will be its light. (Revelation 21:23) The city will be pure and holy. “Nothing that defiles shall enter it.” (Revelation 21:27) The city will be exclusively for those written in the Lamb’s Book of Life” (Revelation 21:27)
The New Jerusalem is also called, “The Holy City”, the “City of God”, the “Celestial City, the “Foursquare City” and the “Heavenly Jerusalem”
Note that the Vatican is also called “The holy city! What a revolting, ugly counterfeit!
It is perfectly biblical, and in fact commanded to know the time and to know the season. So, here at The Prophetic Scroll you will always find the results of looking, watching, praying, and studying for the signs of the Lords coming – and much more.
I took the background pictures of Baobab trees and the saddle-billed stork in Botswana’s Okavango and mixed them together into one.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
