18th September 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Watch the watchmen:
But first: Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s prayer meeting, “The Return” will be held on the Washington Mall, Washington DC, on the 26th September. This day is known as Shabbat Shuvah. Interestingly the Bible reading for the day is, “Return O Israel, to the Lord your God.”(Hosea 14:2-10 Micah 7: 18-20 Joel 2:15-27) It’s all centred on a global call for the church to return to the ways of God, and for Israel’s return to Messiah.
Today is the beginning of Rosh Hashanah / Feast of Trumpets, depending on the sighting of the new moon. ●This is NOT the rapture time and start of the tribulation.
The current peace efforts between Israel and some Arab nations is NOT the final antichrist peace deal - not by any means. What they are is incremental peace efforts.
This is NOT the “peace and safety, then sudden destruction” verse coming about. That verse relates to the Daniel 9:27 peace deal and the tribulation.
But these things collectively are important in that they present a new dawn for the Middle East. The knock-on effects and influence of these peace efforts are causing others to want to jump on the band wagon too.
Because these are such critical and dangerous times, this is a more important time than ever to be led correctly by men of God who are led by the Spirit and have a history of accuracy and stability. There are many amongst the riff raff.
So many wannabe watchmen and teachers are leading people astray with inaccurate, wrong pronouncements. Some are so outrageous! A watchman of the Lord is not one who watches for possibilities. He knows where to look and what to watch for and is led by the Spirit of God, therefore he is right.
I was given some “100% for sure” information in charts and numbers and various things as to why this would be the rapture time – for sure 100%! It didn’t sit right. When checking it out myself nothing added up!
Because a blind, always-wrong watchman says something is a sign; that does not make it so, by any means.
Being wrong destroys your authority and credibility, and damages the prophetic word and the faith of others, especially new believers.
Being wrong on major biblical things means one thing for sure – absolutely: You have not heard from God and you speak your own opinions.
The Spirit led teacher / watchman will have a history of godly stability and is therefore trustworthy.
Discernment is more critical than ever in the face of fast growing deception.
Ezra 3:13 (Temple rebuilt) “The people could not discern the noise of the shout of joy from the noise of the weeping of the people...”
Error becomes an immovable mountain if not dealt with, because it is formed and secured on the pillar of pride.
Spirit led, and inspired knowledge, understanding and wisdom endures and produces godly fruit.
One way to know a false teacher: When brought to correction, they will turn on you because you won’t join them in propping up their pride!
The Spirit of God in your heart is the umpire. He brings peace when you are on the right track. But you need the baptism of the Spirit. If not your umpire is you, yourself.
The condition of the end-time church:
There is a powerful prophetic message for the end-time church hidden in the messages to the seven churches in Revelation 2 & 3. They were seven historic churches. All seven contain truth for us, but prophetically, they also plot the course of church history.
The first three churches, Ephesus, Smyrna and Pergamos speak of the times gone by. The last four plot the course of the end time church and run concurrently. They are Thyatira, representing the Catholic and other orthodox churches. (They are cast into the tribulation) Sardis is the church that has a “name to live but is dead”. They are told that Lord will come upon them as a thief and they won’t know when! This represents the denominational Spirit-less churches. (With a few exceptions) Then comes the glorious church – the church of Philadelphia. They have the key of David, opening the doors to the Jews. (Isaiah 22:22) This church keeps the word and is promised to be kept out of the tribulation. Finally we have the lukewarm church of Laodicea, which is spiritually blind. God “vomits them out of His mouth.” “Laodicea”: Strong’s G2993, “Laodikeia” From two root words: ‘Laos’ = people and ‘Dike’ =Ruling. This is the people ruled” or “people/self opinionated church.
The pictures below show all that remains of Laodicea today. The Spirit of God flew away from this church and God spat them out of His mouth. (Revelation 3:16) The pillars still standing represent truth, but all else is gone.
1 Timothy 3:15 (Amp) “You know how people must conduct themselves in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and stay – the prop and support of the truth.”
So, what we see here is a very powerful and accurate picture of the end-time church. Some of it is the walking dead. Some are a horror of evil. Some are cast into the tribulation, spat out and condemned. And right in the midst is the church who keeps and loves the word and is pro-Israel.
Bear in mind that there is a terrible, tragic church and a glorious, growing powerful church side by side in these days. Don’t get tunnel vision for just one side of the coin.
The Bible speaks of a great end-time revival (the latter rain) in the last days. (Joel 2:23, Hosea 6:3) and in many other verses.
A major prophetic mark of the times is increasing deception in the church. You can’t have increasing deception without increasing deceivers and that’s where the problem lies.
Satan used deception to try to stamp out the early church because he knew it would wreck his kingdom. Now we have the same scenario again. Sometimes you have to be severe in your dealings.
Acts 13:9-11 “Then Saul, also called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit looked intently at him and said, ‘O full of all deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all unrighteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord? And now indeed the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you shall be blind, not seeing the sun for a time, and immediately a dark mist fell upon him...”
It is most important to know prophetic things to come, but also the timing of those things, to avoid deception. You must see with spiritual eyes today.
A Spirit-led and inspired watchman / teacher is always restrained in what he sees and says. He is led by the restrainer.
We are now at the start of the new Hebrew year 5781. It will end and change to 5782 on Rosh Hashanah 2021. That is September 7th - 8th 2021. That’s a very important date!!
This year, 5781 is going to be year like no other. It’s going to be a wild time of stress, strain and pressure. But in the midst there will be islands of peace amongst the pillars of truth.
The good news is that we are on the verge of great revival. We are seeing it in many nations of the east. Of course there will always be churches deteriorating and dying.
Many of those who have gone off into a ditch will repent and return. Many will continue to slip and slide further away.
As we enter the beginning of these wild times, I want to assure you that The Prophetic Scroll will be your place of spiritual stability and rest.
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!
