►Regular readers of The Prophetic Scroll are hereby informed that this Covid19 virus will not come near you. I and my prayer team are praying this as a specific prayer of protection over you.
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
This verse, below was given to me by our Lord in December last year to give to you as the crowning verse for 2020. This was just before the corona-virus became a world pandemic:
The heading is, “Babylon humiliated.” End-time Babylon is the modern world system:
Isaiah 47:10-11 “You have trusted in your wickedness. You have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you; You have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one besides me.’ Therefore evil shall come upon you and you shall not know from where it arises, and trouble shall fall upon you. You will not be able to put it off, and desolation shall come upon you suddenly.”
Romans 11:15 “If their (Jews) being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be, but life from the dead.”
Hosea 11:10 “They shall walk after the Lord. He will roar like a lion. When He roars then His sons shall come trembling from the west.”
1 Kings 8:56 “Blessed be the Lord, who gives rest to His people Israel, according to all that He promised. Not one word of His good promise, which He has promised through His servant Moses, has failed.”
Psalm 57:1 “Be merciful to me O God, for My soul trusts in You; and in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, until these disasters have passed.”
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose of this report is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah.
22nd May 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
In honour of Jerusalem Day (21st – 22nd May)
This is the day set aside to mark the end of the Six-Day War in which Jerusalem was liberated from Arab occupiers and united as one Israeli city again.
Let’s expand on the familiar verse, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:”
Psalm 122:2-3 “Our feet are standing within your gates, Jerusalem – Jerusalem, built as a city compact together.”
●The term “compact together” means joined in solid unity, or “knitting together in unity, with no divisions or separations.
Psalm 122:6-7 “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. May they prosper who love you. Peace be (Shalom) within her walls.”
●The root word of ‘Shalom’ also means “complete”, or “paid for.”
This reuniting and “joining together” of Jerusalem in “completeness” took place as a result of the Six Day war in 1967.
Do you see that praying for the peace of Jerusalem includes praying against her being divided, and for her being united! Praying for the peace of Jerusalem means praying for the return of the Prince of peace, which occurs as the Jews recognise their Messiah.
Marked by the beast or by God!
As we get closer to the coming of the Lord it is most important to be right with God, right in heart and right with doctrine and truth. The spiritual environment is becoming super-charged. The forces of error are more dangerous now than ever before.
We need all our defences, gifts of the Spirit and God-given knowledge and wisdom. Error is a spirit that opens the door for more error and attacks from the enemy.
With the cross removed from society, truth is obscured and deception rules. People believe that what they believe is the truth because of their self-importance.
You need to be spiritually vigilant, in heart and discerning in doctrine. Of course you need to be right in the application of these things too. But with the leading of the Spirit of God – you are safe.
The world today is a dangerous place.
Be careful of those with a hidden agenda. Be careful of the mass-media, politicians and the authorities. They are all needed instruments of the new world order, and will soon be employed and empowered by spirits they can’t see.
To introduce the entire antichrist system, these powers must delegitimize the scriptures and replace them with their own ideas.
The control of your health is a powerful way to create subservience.
Are you praying for the kingdom of the world to go back to normal, or for “The kingdom of God to come?” The coming kingdom of God is the only permanent solution to the fall of this world. Don’t think the world is going to get better.
The instruction is to seek the kingdom of God first and not second, or when troubles hit the fan.
When you, a nation, or the world turns from God, and trusts in man, the journey from there on is a downward spiral.
What Satan wants is submission. He wants people to be blind, non-questioning bowing, puppets on a string – another brick in the world’s wall, a cog in the wheel.
Fear of an unknown future causes stress. Knowledge of it releases the stress and brings peace. Man is dependent upon peace and freedom for his sanity. This only comes through repentance and the following of God’s word and ways.
The corona virus has brought out the best in mankind, with many people helping each other, giving and showing much goodwill, but that is not repentance.
Even if a vaccine is found soon, it’s too late to stop the economic and social knock-on effects. The lies and manipulation have done their work. People are now primed to be controlled. They have been primed to accept their fallen, soon coming saviour!
The forces behind the scenes have already got a lot more than their foot in the door. It’s now not a matter of if but when the baby foal runners will give way to the big four riders of the apocalypse.
The mark of the beast:
This mark will only come about in the tribulation period. We may see the construction of it before, but it will only be implemented then.
Many are speaking of it now using fear tactics. Many are afraid they will be fooled into taking it.
There is no fear that you could take the mark. It will appear after the rapture. It requires deliberate worship, so those who take it will know what they are doing. God is not into tricking the innocent.
At this stage we don’t know exactly what it will be. We can assume that it will be connected in some way to tracking people, perhaps a vaccine or some sort of device-less implant. It will be connected to the 666 system and all things related to a new world order, currency, religion, and health system.
The mark of the beast could be some form of mark that identifies you as one who has already received a vaccination. (Revelation 13:16-17 19:20)
Don’t jump to all sorts of conclusions. One thing that makes this coming mark unique is that it will be placed on the forehead or right hand. No vaccination is ever given in the forehead.
I do believe that it will be physical mark of some sort and not just a symbolic metaphor.
The word “mark” is Strong’s G5480 “Charagma.” Meanings: Imprint, stamped, branded, carved.
The mark of God:
God’s tribulation saints are given a mark – the mark of the Lamb (Revelation 7:3; 14:1)
It is the 144,000 of Israel who are sealed with this mark on the forehead.
But we too are “marked” and sealed by God. This mark or seal for us is not necessarily physical, but it is stronger and more powerful than all the forces of darkness combined!
Ephesians 1:13 “In Him you also trusted after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of salvation, in whom also having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.” (2 Corinthians 1:22)
Revelation 22:3-4 “There shall be no more curse; but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. They shall see His face and His name shall be on their foreheads.”
Note well that we have the name of the living God on our foreheads. The unsaved will have the mark, the number of his name – 666 on theirs!
When we chose our Lord, He chooses us to be eternally set apart for great glory!
God is using these troubles cause us to grow in holiness.
Holiness is directly related to looking for the coming of the Lord (Titus 2:13) Expectation is a powerful force creating holiness.
Isaiah 29:18-20 “In that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book and the eyes of the blind shall see out of the obscurity of darkness. The humble shall increase their joy in the Lord, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel, for the terrible one is brought to nothing...”
Ephesians 5:13-14 “All things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Awake, you who sleep; arise from the dead, and Messiah will give you light.”
Edition 511: March 3rd 2020.
Dangers facing Israel:
Today there are numerous, growing dangers facing Israel. This is due to God’s call upon Israel to be His chosen super-evangelists to the Gentile world in the soon-coming tribulation period and Satan’s resistance to it.
The dangers include wars and conflicts soon to break out in the Middle East, prophesied in the Bible, with Israel in the cross-hairs.
In this edition, I want to delve into some deep, sinister, dangers which are often obscured below the surface, but very real.
I want to look at the very real danger facing you becoming a danger to Israel! And I will look at how you can be a great friend of God and His servant Israel, in these days.
You can be a glory-rider or a blindfolded rider of the beast to destruction.
Christian history relating to the Jews is a sickening disgrace of extreme torture, mass murder and attempted extermination. It’s all a pure manifestation of Satan himself.
Today many in the church have constructed a new blood-libel of lies – Bible verses taken out of context and designed to get rid of the Jews again. Some of these teachers, with Bible in hand, may as well have a Swastika tattooed on their foreheads.
At Israel’s independence in 1948 (Isaiah 66:8), there were 30 Jewish believers in Yeshua in Israel. Today, the number of Jews coming to Messiah is growing very fast in every town and city, mostly caused by Jews evangelising Jews, while many Christians are still full of Catholic-created and inspired replacement theology.
Romans 1:16 “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Messiah, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek (Gentiles).”
“Teachers will incur a stricter judgment, therefore let not many of you be teachers!” (James 3:1) Some self-appointed teachers need to get out of ministry. You can tell who they are by them being in error over and over again.
Replacement theology – replacement reality:
Replacement theology legitimises and sanctions Jew-hatred. It puts God’s apparent stamp of approval on anti-Jew sentiment. But in reality it is Satan’s stamp of approval! It’s always the gullible, and ignorant who get caught out, and tragically, new believers.
Replacement theology developed by the Catholic church, uses Bible verses wrongly applied, to replace Israel with the church. Because it is of a powerful evil spirit, it leads to replacement reality!
Replacement theology has to nullify the prophesied great return to the land and regathering of the Jewish people. It must also deliver Jerusalem to the annals of obscurity, or at least make its status the same as any other city of the world.
Martin Luther refined the Catholic-created replacement theology. Hitler used these beliefs in his attempt to create a new world order with now Jews in it.
Hitler’s Nazi Holocaust was a manifestation of that spirit within replacement theology. The same spirit motivated the Catholic popes to torture and murder an unknown number, (many millions) of Jews in the Inquisitions. They wanted a new world Catholic order!
The ancient spirit behind the inquisitions, and the Holocaust is still lurking in the background, and is about to manifest again, within much of the so-called church.
►Replacement theology uses Bible verses wrongly applied, but also uses the ancient technique of demonising, discrediting and delegitimizing the “enemy,” and therefore makes them the target of attack.
Replacement theology flies in the face of God. It is an attack on the authority of God’s word and Bible prophecy itself.
In effect replacement theology replaces God’s word with pride.
I would like to share with you now a profound, shocking, example of how Satan is at work within a section of the church.
Gross, dangerous, error:
I will not name the individual concerned, because this is not a personal attack on him, and who knows, he may repent. This is a word of correction and warning.
Here is the false, erroneous doctrine presented in his teachings:
■The fall of the Jews began, he says, when “the Jews” stoned Stephen (Acts 7:59-60). Interestingly as Stephen died he prayed that God would not charge this against those Jews.
This was when God cut off the Jews – all of them, he claims – with no scriptural support!
There’s nothing new about this false belief. It is part of the new “blood libel”, anti-Semitic belief that the blood of Stephen now cries out for the Jews to be exterminated. It was a belief of Luther and Hitler.
Firstly, “the Jews” did not stone Stephen; only some did, led by the man who became the apostle Paul after his repentance.
Why cite the stoning of Stephen as a reason to come against and damage all Jews even today? If God set aside the Jews because of their stoning of Stephen, why did He then raise up a new apostle to the Jews? Likewise, how can Gentiles (wild olive branch) be grafted into the true olive tree if it had been cut down?
■Then he claims that the “great apostasy” or “falling away” of 2 Thessalonians 2:3 is not speaking of the church at all, but the Jews. He claims that their fall is total and complete.
■Then he presents the crown of error in his false doctrine:
Hebrews 6:4-6 “For it impossible for those once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God.”
His false doctrine claims that this passage above is speaking to the Jews.
This passage begins with the doctrine of Messiah for the church (verses 1 & 2). It is addressed to the church. It is addressed to people who were once partakers of the Holy Spirit and the work of the cross. It is speaking of Christians who have renounced Messiah. It is not addressed to Jews.
Our man of error says that this verse above means that the Jews can never come back to repentance. For them, it’s all over.
Romans 11:1 “Has God cast away His people? Certainly not!” Verse 11 “Have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not!”
■In other teachings, this same individual claims that the messages to the seven churches in the opening chapters of the Revelation are not for the church but for Israel. He then cites some of the condemnations in those letters claiming that they are for the Jews, when in fact they are for the churches.
Again his erroneous interpretation is specifically designed to put the Jews down.
■Like the Catholics, he claims that the Jews crucified Messiah, as if they are to be held responsible today. In fact you and I crucified our Lord. He laid down His own life for us.”
■There is another false doctrine doing the rounds that appears on the surface to be quite right. It is called “Rightly dividing the truth.” The bottom line, hidden to most, is that it wrongly divides Israel right out of the picture.
The summary conclusion of all these false doctrines has a collective outcome – cast down the Jews.
This is all a very clear succinct work of the spirit of replacement theology at its core!
At the top of this website I have a line a words, which carefully describes the entire great drama of all the ages – the journey of Israel from being elected, to rebellion, to being rejected, regathered, then repenting, being received and realising Gods plan.
►Here is the link to a presentation I put together, for you. I have included many verses on this miraculous, magnificent plan of God.
The deadly danger of biblical error:
Many smaller errors, especially unintentional through ignorance or presumption, are often no big deal, and come right as we go along the road with the Spirit of God leading us. There are some big foundational errors that are absolutely deadly.
Teachers amplify error and it spreads fast and influences the gullible and new believers.
Big error in teachers is of pride and leads to a big fall and big destruction for them as well as their followers.
What amazes me is how some teachers never seem to get tired of being wrong over and over again. They obviously have no concern for the people they lead astray.
The more times you are wrong, the more you will not be believed, and as a teacher, the more people you will be held accountable for leading into error.
Yes, as a teacher, you are your brother’s keeper!
There is another Holocaust coming to the Israel, soon. Will replacement theology, anti-Semitism and general-Jew hatred be a part of it again? You bet it will. It is already forming all around us.
The modern Christian Hitler uses Bible verses instead of gas chambers, but his objective is the same! It is to get rid of the Jews, if only theologically, for now.
There are many people out there who have become enemies of Israel over time because of their exposure to the teachings of other enemies of Israel, even in the pulpit.
Evidence does not persuade those with a fixated mind. Amazingly, the Bible says that “even though they see one raised from the dead they will not believe” (Luke 16:31). Israel is about to be raised from spiritual death. (Romans 11:15)
False doctrine or unbelief not repented of and forsaken, can be a powerful force. It becomes spiritually charged and develops into a stronghold and immovable curse.
Listen for and watch for the undercurrent of subliminal, give away signs and comments that point to the anti-Jew spirit. It’s deep inside their heart and leaks out of their mouth.
►I take this opportunity to distance and separate myself and The Prophetic Scroll from all those of replacement theology, anti-Semitism, and anti-Zionism amongst the church, YouTube ministries, and others. (Unless repentance is in sight)
►I also take this opportunity to align and identify myself and The Prophetic Scroll with God’s word, will and plans for Israel now and into the future. Israel, we stand with you, for you, and bless you.
Ezekiel 13:18 “...Will you hunt the souls of My people (Israel) and keep yourselves alive.”
Truth endures, my friends, error does not. Truth comforts, assures and protects, but also brings correction. Truth is your great eternal friend.
God’s will, will be done:
A big danger facing Israel is one very few are aware of or even believe. It is the danger that would prevent them from fulfilling God’s plan for them to be God’s primary evangelists to the nations during the seven-year tribulation period.
Israel is in danger of being drawn into the world-system as an ordinary member of the nations of the world. The truth is - Israel will forever be unique, because God has planned it that way.
Deuteronomy 14:2 “For you (Israel) are a holy people to the Lord your God, and the Lord has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth.”
Do you know that God commanded the children of Israel to affix knotted fringes (tzitzit) to the corners of the prayer shawl (tallit). This was to identify them, separately from the world and to remind them of His eternal word and promises tied to them. (Deuteronomy 22:12, Numbers 15:37-41) (That’s them in the image below under “Israel” on the right)
Know this: that those in all forms of replacement theology have tried to write Israel’s death certificate. Satan has directed their hand, but God has written their birth certificate (Isaiah 66:8) and they will live!
Israel has been born as a nation and is about to be born spiritually.
Throughout history Satan has used his people as enemies of Israel, to bring them down, eliminate them and kill them – nothing has changed.
Nothing has changed in the end result. As they proclaim Israel’s fall, they themselves have fallen and been locked out of God’s blessing by the key of David. They all fail and fall miserably and do themselves incredible damage. God’s will, way and word always comes through victoriously.
The tragic church:
A large part of the church has hailed venerated, and glorified many of their heroes. The church fathers (not all) were anti-Semitic hate-filled Jew-haters. Much of that evil spirit has simply infused into, and poisoned some of the church today.
Many people sit before pulpits starving for the reality of God and are fed poison instead.
The world has created a god in its fallen sin-filled image. The worldly church has succeeded in creating a God in its low Jew-less image. Some of these churches, as a result, have become a fraud and a counterfeit.
►Thankfully, many churches have a high and exalted view of God and His word, led by His Spirit, which lifts them up keeping them safe and secure in these dangerous days. Many churches, once in the dark on these things, are now seeing the light and being blessed.
Your church must understand and proclaim God’s word for Israel.
Here are some of the main points from the following verses: Micah 7:19-29, Hosea 14:4-6, Hosea 3:5, Zephaniah 3:13.
●God will have compassion on Israel and will give them the truth. ●He will heal their backsliding and cast their sins away. ●He will beautify them like an olive tree and give them dew and goodness in the latter days. ●The remnant of Israel will be holy.
The tragic nation:
Many nations of the world are anti-Semitic. Some are active and some not. The problem is that government policy rubs off on the masses, particularly those who are under-educated and easy to influence.
Often a government, at the stroke of a pen can cause almost an entire population to be swayed against Israel. I have seen it many times. It does happen the other way around.
Not only is that government distributing God’s curse on its people, but on themselves as well. (Genesis 12:3, Numbers 24:9)
Enlightened self interest is to be pro-God and His word on Israel; be it church or state.
The wise bless Israel.
Zechariah 12:9-10 “It shall come to pass in that day I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they have pierced and will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son...”
If you don’t have the eyes of your understanding enlightened by the living God, you will see things Satan’s way!
Satan wants Israel because God has chosen Israel.
1 Chronicles 21:1 “Now Satan stood up against Israel...”
Zechariah 3:2 “The Lord said to Satan, The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you!
My favourite animal – the cheetah. I took this picture during an operation to fit radio tracking collars to these cheetahs on their release into the wilds. This was in the years when they were endangered.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
