- Due to the fast changing prophetic news environment, check back here for any new or urgent updates that are important.
- The signing of the Abrahamic Accord at the White House later today is of no prophetic consequence on its own. Collectively with others it does have significance, but not Daniel 9:27
- Iraq (the home of Babylon) is reported to be lining up to make peace with Israel.
- There will be no talk of, or deal relating to the Temple Mount at this signing.
- Iran and friends threaten missile attack on Israel and the UAE because of their new friendship.
- Trump warns Iran of “1000-times harsher response” if Iran attacks US Ambassador to South Africa.
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.
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 504: January 14th 2020.
What’s really going on?
These are words of life!
The ticking clock is counting down; crunch time is coming, as your day of reckoning approaches. For whom does the bell toll? For whom is the alarm sounding and the shofar blowing?
It is time for your final preparations. At zero hour it is too late! At the point of no return, there is no turn-around; there is no recount, redo, remake or retake! Be ready now. Be holy!
Those who are wise will be repentant- ready. They will have a glorious flying start! Their words will have spoken and will be known by God, heaven and hell.
Don’t trivialise or underestimate your importance, value, and worth to His kingdom.
So, what’s it all about?
Why is everyone getting so hot under the collar? Why are the nations raging? Why all the new enmities and why are the world’s masses rebelling like never before? (Psalm 2:1)
It’s Satan’s attempt to preserve his world and his people his way. It’s Satan’s attempt to rise above God and receive the world’s worship. It’s the battle between truth and deceptive error. It’s kingdoms in conflict coming to a climax. It’s the depravity of the heart of man trying to dominate. It’s a world of demonic forces and powers fighting their last stand.
It’s all about the last days of the church and the approaching first days of Israel as God’s replacement of the church, as His evangelists in the tribulation period.
What is going on is the dumbing down and blinding of the masses to Satan’s works by Satan, as his time begins to run out. (Revelation 12:12)
What’s going on is the preparations for an enslaved world, controlled by the antichrist.
The devil’s quotes for today:
These quotes were said ages ago, but are so very relevant for the world today. They were all spoken by the devil himself in disguise!
They are all aimed at the ultimate goal of Satan which is to kill, steal and destroy, by creating a utopian world of “peace”.
Firstly, Socialism and communism are the same. They intend producing a common, society of equality, which would bring world peace – so they would have you believe!
The main architects of socialism and communism were, Marx, Lenin, and Stalin. Today, all the liberal left wing parties maintain a social agenda. Governments utilising massive state control are communist or a mix of socialism and communism.
“The goal of socialism is communism”. (Lenin)
Hitler said that the goals of Marxism, Leninism Stalinism will be our “achievable goal.”
“The devil is on my side” (Stalin)
“Communism must abolish biblical truth and morality.” (Communist Manifesto)
“Communism must destroy churches in favour of atheism, the opium of the people” (Marx).
“Communism must destroy all systems in which godly authority is instituted, so that the state can become supreme and all controlling.” (Lenin)
“Communism must destroy all hierarchy’s morality, tradition, and truth driving towards moral and social desolation, upon which the state seizes control.” (Lenin)
“The abolition of private property ownership, independent nations and independent thinking, including education of the masses is included in the goal of communism.”
“Conflict leads us forward” (Karl Marx)
►In effect both communism and socialism is the practice social, economic, and political failure by the demon possessed.
As you can see from these quotes, we are now in a world where many of these things, in various forms are now being implemented in many nations – right before our eyes.
So, at the end of it all, these systems are designed to bring about powerful executive control of the masses by a few. It is presented as a utopian dream, which is a giant lie, only believed by the ignorant or demon possessed! It is an offense to God and His ways.
The Bible predicts an end-time world socialistic government of mass control (Isaiah 10:13-14) Why this? It is because the masses don’t know any better. They have been dumbed down and blinded.
Taking from the rich and giving to the poor is the idealism of economic fools. It never works. Giving to the poor and needy is good, but always from a voluntary point of view, not a central, state-controlled thing.
Socialism seduces the spiritually ignorant, and in the end produces slavery to the state. Socialism will lift you up so that you can fall very far down!
Socialism promises peace and happiness but produces disaster and turmoil. The reason is because it is of the “father of lies.”
Ecclesiastes 10:2-3 “A wise man’s heart is at his right hand, but a fool’s heart is at his left. Even when a fool walks along the way, he lacks wisdom, and he shows everyone that he is a fool.”
What an amazing identification of the right and liberal left politically speaking!
Now we come to the god of the modern world – democracy.
The lie of democracy, that almost everyone falls for all the time, is that a majority of people are right. But what is right or wrong? If the absolute guide – the Bible has been removed from society, there is no right or wrong then, except in your own amoral, blinded mind’s eye.
Democracy is fine and works in a nation under God, where His values are still found.
At the end of the day, godless democracy will fall and fail – big time. The nations will vote Satan and his puppet, the antichrist into world power!
Democracy is actually a threat to the world. Satan is the god of the world and he is using democracy as a smoke-screen and shield to bring himself to power as the antichrist. He will not share rulership with anyone when he comes to world power! He will devour democracy.
Socialism and communism and democracy, ultimately has to be anti-Semitic, because God’s call for Israel is not to assimilate into the nations. God will deal with Israel separately and in a different manner to the world. In a sense Israel is going to become God’s new “church.”
Numbers 23:9 “From the hills, I behold him, (Israel) a people dwelling alone, not reckoning itself among the nations.” Zechariah 10:9
The mass media:
The media is Satan’s great tool for fools. It has speedily evolved into a monster of manipulation. It never used to be so spiritually charged and evil in earlier days.
Propaganda is a triumphant tool to seduce and control the ignorant, and properly ill-informed. So who wields the tool? It is the master of mankind and the world - Satan.
When you listen to Satan, you always lose your free will and choice. He rules you like a slave driver. Choice is under attack. When your choice becomes hijacked, you become a tool of the tool-wielder.
In the kingdom of God there is: Peace, righteousness and joy. It is as “valuable as a pearl”. It is not of the world, and it shall “break all other kingdoms in pieces.” (Various verses)
In the kingdom of the world there is: Sin, unrighteousness, unholiness, distress, disquiet, sorrow and more.
Yet the media attacks and belittles the things of God’s kingdom and exalts the things of the world’s kingdom!
So, what’s really going on with the mass-media?
The age-old Hitler-used principle “Repeat the lie often enough and the masses will believe it,” is the principle of the media today.
Satan makes you stupid, and he is working overtime to make the masses a gullible, defenceless instrument of his choosing. The price you pay for this is unimaginably high!
The easiest people to dupe are the spiritually ignorant, with no knowledge of God. The only way to be truly spiritually wise and ready for the kingdom, is to be grounded in the word of God.
Now is the time to know what’s going on, or at least the basics. It is vitally important to know the author and interpreter of the Bible - the Holy Spirit. These are the days of massive, growing ignorance fuelled by Satan.
Satan’s attacks on the true, awake church will not succeed, but his attacks on the spineless, unarmed, unprepared church will succeed! He is using many methods to neutralise the church and make it ineffective.
Watering down the gospel and making it appealing to the masses is occurring, and is the very reason for the decline of Christianity in the West.
Much of the church is sinking because it is being re-characterised as it loses its shining light of holiness in favour of all manner of evil.
The devil can’t stamp the true church out, but he can kill its fruits of holiness.
The rejection and persecution of Christians is primarily for the reason of their fruits of holiness. It is Satan’s attempt to strip Christians of their godly identity. This makes them fit in with the world.
It really is this holiness in you that the world hates with a passion. It’s their way of attacking our Lord. Holiness is a product of God, of the new-birth. Unrighteousness and sin is a product of fallen man and Satan himself.
Romans 6:22-23 “Now being made free from sin, and becoming servants of God, you have fruit unto holiness and the end everlasting life...”
►Holiness is the ground in which you grow in grace and glory!
Today we are in a world of unholy Christians – sold out to the spirit of the world, with a few verses added to give the right appearance.
Worldlifying churchianity is what is really on the go now. Much of the falling church is now identified with, and has more in common with sin than holiness.
Their yapping, prancing pastors and leaders have taught them that materialism is central.
The biggest idol in the world is the love of the world. This why the Bible says friendship with the world is enmity with God. You cannot be a friend of God and the world!
The warnings from God always come before judgement! Much of the church has ignored he warnings for too long. “Judgement begins in the house of God.” (1 Peter 4:17)
Do you want to know if you are on the right road? Just look at how many are on the road of mixture and how many stand separated. The right road is the narrow road with few on it. The wide road to destruction is the dark road in which the lights have gone out!
Are you amongst the Christian majority? If so, you are on the wrong, wrong road.
In fact a much more telling and deadly issue is the fact that those on the wide road have left the cross aside! They walk right past it every day instead of picking it up! The cross of Calvary together with your own daily cross, are the instruments of true, separate holiness and discipleship.
God wants you to be separate from worldliness in as many ways as possible. The devil and his wolves in pulpits want you to be joined together with worldliness – to fit in well and comfortably.
As a true, on fire believer, you will be known by your fruits, which are far different to those of the world. You will be a glorious, shining oddball. And yes you will be creating “sparks” which will set some on fire for our Lord, and cause great trouble with others!
Job5:7 “Man is born into trouble, as the sparks fly upwards.”
Many unsaved people that get to know you will hate you because you are a reflection of what they are not and can’t be no matter how hard they try.
Israel and the sign of earthquakes:
There are so many end-time signs, but there is one with a unique message to it. It is little known, but of great importance. It is the sign of earthquakes.
The earthquake sign is primarily for Israel and signals her repentance and salvation, when the shofar sounds at the twinkling of sunset.
“The stones will cry out” (Luke 19:40) and the earth will shake. The world will know that Israel’s dry bones are arising and coming to life.
God often uses earthquakes as a sign. Most are simply a natural phenomenon. But earthquakes, especially mentioned in the Bible have prophetic meaning.
Let’s have a look at this most interesting situation:
●When Israel left Egypt for the Promised Land in the great Exodus, an earthquake struck just as Moses was instructed to go up Mount Sinai.
Exodus 19:18 “Mount Sinai was completely in smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire. Its smoke ascended like the smoke of a furnace and the whole mountain quaked greatly.”
●At the crucifixion an earthquake struck, as the temple veil was split from top to bottom:
Matthew 27:51 (Amp) “At once, the curtain veil of the sanctuary of the temple, was torn in two from the top to the bottom. The earth shook and the rocks were split.”
●At the resurrection, an earthquake struck:
Matthew 28:2 (Mary came to the tomb) “And behold there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone from the door and sat on it.”
●At the dispensation change from the church age to the tribulation an earthquake strikes:
Revelation 6:12 (At tribulation start) “I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair and the moon became like blood.”
●At the start of the great war of Gog and Magog (WW111) an earthquake strikes:
Ezekiel 38:18-19 “It will come to pass at the same time, when Gog comes against the land of Israel, says the Lord God, that My fury will show in My face. For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath, I have spoken. Surely in that day there will be a great earthquake in the land of Israel.”
This earthquake occurs when Israel turns to the Lord en masse (Ezekiel 38:23, 39:7, 29)
●As the two Jewish witnesses are raised from the dead and raptured to heaven at some point beyond mid-tribulation, there will be a great earthquake:
Revelation 12:13 “They (two witnesses) heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them ‘Come up here.’ And they ascended to heaven in a cloud and their enemies saw them. In the same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. In the earthquake seven thousand men were killed, and the rest were afraid and gave glory to God of heaven.”
•We see an earthquake strike early in the Exodus as the children of Israel travel to the Promised Land. •We see an earthquake strike as our Lord was crucified. •We see an earthquake strike as the temple veil, which symbolises blindness on the Jews, is torn from top to bottom. •We see an earthquake strike as the resurrection occurred. •We see an earthquake strike as the church age ends and the tribulation begins. (Time of Jacob’s – Israel’s trouble) •We see an earthquake strike as the war of Gog and Magog gets underway, which is when the Jews begin to be saved en masse. •Finally we see an earthquake strike as the Jewish two witnesses are raptured.
All of this paints an incredible, amazing picture, of which you should take note! Do you see it? I hope you do!
►For Israel, the Promised Land is a type of their coming salvation. The cross is the only way of salvation and not the temple or law. The resurrection makes it all totally supernatural. The tribulation start, the war of Gog and Magog, and salvation of the Jews all occur in very close proximity to each other.
These events are all marked by an earthquake.
Gog and Magog – not yet:
Don’t jump the gun. I see many are saying that we are in the Gog and Magog war of Ezekiel 38 & 39 (WW111). We are not. We are in the build-up to it. We are in the forerunner period.
There are some very distinctive evidences of WW111 in the Bible. They are not here yet.
Egypt is always a type of the world and a type of Israel in bondage. “Let My people go” out of Egypt to the Promised Land, is a type of Israel’s salvation still to come.
Who starts WW111 (Gog and Magog)? It is not President Trump! It is God!! He (God) will put “hooks in the jaws” of Russia and her allies and draw them into the conflict. Note that it was God who drew Pharaoh and his armies to their death. It is God who starts WW111!
Pharaoh eventually did yield to Moses and agreed to “Let My people go.” That is a type of the antichrist’s peace treaty. God hardened Pharaoh’s heart so that he would go after the Jews to kill them after he had let them go. The antichrist will make a peace treaty with Israel, and then turn against them to kill them.
As Pharaoh and his armies were killed in the Red Sea, so the armies of the world will meet their fate too in a sea of blood, surrounding Jerusalem.
Yes we are seeing the convergence of, and aligning of nations and preparations for this great war, and it will begin suddenly, but it’s not just yet.
What is really going on?
God’s glory is arising, the world is falling, the counterfeit church is sinking; the media is becoming Satan’s mouthpiece. The true Christians are getting stronger and stronger even in weakness.
►You can’t kill the resurrected Lord and His word. You can only kill yourself trying! In fact, if the Bible is the word of God, it is the only resurrected book in history and you can’t kill it!
Only those with a small, insignificant God can criticise the things of God and His word.
We must have our spiritual eyes opened to see into the spirit realm, to see demonic attacks, to see the operations of the kingdom of the world, and to see into the word of God, to see prophetic things to come, and the timing of those things, and to see that we are the victors.
We must have spiritual eyes and ears in the face of the anti-God onslaught.
►The truth will set you free”, says the Bible. But the truth in the devil’s hands will bring you into bondage in the name of freedom!
In summary: The devil operates through the self life or sin nature of man, the world-system, and the demonic. All three are arising in their last stand of intensified rebellion against the living God, before their ultimate demise.
The god of this world and its media-voice are trying to strike a death blow to the godly principles of a nation under God.
Heaven is coming soon. Keep your spiritual eyes tuned in.
Think about this:
In heaven there will be no relationship breakdowns, no stress, anxiety, or trouble. There will be no loneliness, and no purposelessness. There will be no equality, except in that we all have the same foundation. We will be as different as the stars are from each other forever. We will be known by our differing brightness.
Be mightily blessed and stand strong.
I took these two pictures in the beautiful Namib Desert.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
