|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.|
►We have now reached 47 million regular visitors.
►Next Edition, Lord willing: "Reasons for the tribulation."
- Due to the fast changing prophetic news environment, check back here for any new or urgent updates that are important.
- The event at the Washington Mall in front of Capitol Hill, by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn called “The Return” was a brilliant all day call to world, national and personal repentance for the sins of abortion, homosexuality and others. It was one of the largest ever Christian events, streamed worldwide and watched by many hundreds of millions. What a truly amazing, powerful event! You can watch the 12 hour event HERE
- The US moves to re-impose sanctions on Iran against the wishes of the UN and EU.
- The Arab nations lining up for normalisation deals with Israel are all enemies of Iran. Could this be the spark that lights the fuse? Hmmm!
- Various Arab nations line up to make peace deals with Israel. Interestingly they are not nations mentioned in the war of Ezekiel 38 & 39. (Neither are the Abrahamic Accord two, or Egypt and Jordan, who have existing peace deals with Israel.) The alignment forming divides between Iran’s foes and friends – right in line with Gog and Magog!
- Egypt and UAE push to be “pillars of stability” in Middle East, as Egypt signs new gas deal with Israel.
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.
25th August 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Accords make them mad!
The Abrahamic Accord recently signed at the White House, and those upcoming are NOT the Daniel 9:27 peace covenant. They are no covenant at all and make no reference to a temple, the land or Jerusalem. They were made between nations that were not major enemies of Israel in the first place. They are what would be called “normalisation agreements.
Far too many church leaders and teachers are following each other claiming that these agreements are the big one.
Let me tell you how this will all play out. These normalisation deals have already angered the Palestinians. They have angered Iran and they have angered Syria, Hezbollah and some other arch-enemies of Israel.
Once you get a whole lot of rabid, wild, angered dogs in a corner, you are likely to get your backside bitten if you try to pet them. These accords are not ‘Trump dividing Israel’, as the blind, always-wrong brigade keeps chanting.
They are instruments cleverly being used to freak-out the Palestinians and allies. It is designed to isolate the Palestinians, Iran and allies. Yet many in the church are the ones being angered! Of course we know it will ignite WW111, coming soon to stage near you. I say, “freak them out some more”, so we can get this show on the go, and over, and go home!
Are we heading towards the big prophetic events? Yes absolutely, but this is not it yet.
Some believe that a rather obscure verse now places Rosh Hashanah on the same day as Yom Kippur (28th) and this is now when the rapture will occur.
The problem with that is that requited, as yet unfulfilled events are still at large, so it changes nothing.
The other problem is that it is the always- wrong Revelation 12-sign teachers, putting it forward. They also claim that the Abrahamic Accord just signed, is the antichrist covenant of Daniel 9:27. They also claim the Deal of the Century was the antichrist covenant too.
Every single verse used by the Revelation 12-sign crowd is wrongly used. The verses are of replacement theology. This is important now because they seem to be making a resurgence, with this offence to the Jews continuing.
When Jews see their own scriptures perverted, turned on their heads and used to get rid of them, they react with horror. And those of the church who do this – know that there will be consequences.
Their replacement theology classics are: The Revelation 12 male Child (capitalised), is the church and not Messiah – Israel. They replace the Israel with the church in Isaiah 66:8 (read the surrounding verses), and others.
You may not be aware that the Catholic church invented replacement theology to get rid of the Jews. Here are some of the tenets of the Catholic Council of Laodicea in 363 AD:
●Outlawing of the keeping of the Sabbath. ●Changing the Sabbath to Sunday. ●Heretics and Jews were forbidden from entering the church. ●The 60th canon removed the entire book of Revelation from the New Testament. ●Communion was to be denied those who had been baptised by full immersion. ●Christians must not Judaize by resting on the Sabbath. ●It is unlawful to participate in any of the Feasts of the Jews, or to feast with them. ●Only baptism into the Catholic faith is allowed and to be accompanied with learning by heart of the Catholic creed. ●The laity may not read the scriptures.
Some of these (above) have changed since then, but some have not. The same spirit resides there.
We are now in the birth pangs of Israel’s spiritual birth. This is a most important and critical time.
In many ways Israel is like a pearl of great price, hidden in a field, or like a diamond in the rough! “Diamonds are forever,” sang Shirley Bassey and how right she is.
Israel will finally triumph over all her enemies in victory, with God’s help, in spite of those in and out of the church that place obstacles in her path.
Isaiah 26:17-18 “As a woman with child is in pain and cries out in her pangs, when she draws near the time of delivery, so have we (Israel) been in Your sight, O Lord...we have as it were, brought forth wind; we have not accomplished any deliverance in the earth, nor have the inhabitants of the earth fallen.”
Much of the church has been a stumbling block to Jews. As the Jews come to repentance, many will come to repentance for their evil against the Jews, but many will be led deeper into enmity by the spirits controlling their heritage of heresy.
Replacement theology leads the Jews away from the truth and their spiritual Promised Land. Messianic believers lead them to the truth and their spiritual Promised Land.
You should not be surprised to see that most false doctrine affects Israel in one way or another, and knocks on to other doctrines.
Israel is still in the birth canal. She has been born as a nation, but not spiritually yet. She is still blind to her Messiah and in rebellion. God has chosen some to speak to Israel, to call her to repentance and to encourage her.
The prophet Jeremiah was given a message from God to His people in rebellion.
Jeremiah 1:18-19 “I have made you (Jeremiah) this day a fortified city and an iron pillar, and bronze walls against the whole land...They will fight against you, but they shall not prevail, ‘for I am with you’, says the Lord.” (Isaiah 66:8-9)
The metals mentioned above have meaning. Iron = strength or crushing. Bronze= judgement on sin, and a pillar represents support and stability.
The Prophetic Scroll aligns totally with Jeremiah in this monumental endeavour.
Interestingly, at this particular time, many Christian churches and ministries are seeing and recognising the place of Israel in prophecy. And of course the division remains with those stuck in their ditch.
The repentance of Israel:
Micah 7:9-10 “I (Israel) will bear the indignation of the Lord because I have sinned against Him, until He pleads my case and executes justice for me. He will bring me forth to the light, and I will see His righteousness. Then my enemy will see and be covered with shame...”
God knows and we know that Israel will finally fulfil God’s purpose and calling for them as they repent in large numbers.
►In ancient Hebrew the word “repent” is made up of the two letters, ‘Shin and Beyt’ Shin is a picture of flames of fire or teeth. Beyt is a picture of a house or tent.
The word has the pictographic meaning of burning the house down as you leave and go forward. This means you have no intention of going back! You have burnt your bridges to sin! That’s what true repentance is. How amazing!
Anyone out there in the process of divorce, please don’t burn the house down as you leave. You’ll have a tough time explaining Beyt Shin to the judge.
Edition 513: March 17th 2020.
The Incredible Journey:
Job 23:10 “He knows my journey; when He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold.”
Psalm 66:10 “You, O God have proved us; You have refined us as silver is refined.”
When you see that you are on an incredible journey, you are on the road to glory.
The world is temporary and due for destruction. (2 Corinthians 4:18) The spiritual dimension is more real than the physical world, and is eternal as you are, born for unimaginable magnificent majesty.
God planned and called you, before the foundation of the world! Your journey will never end, but it will be fulfilled as you go, culminating at the birth of the eternity of the eternities!
Our journey in a nutshell:
●Our journey begins before the foundation of the earth, when we were conceived and planned by God (Ephesians 1:4). ●It moves on to our natural birth into this fallen world. ●It moves on to our death on the cross with Messiah and resurrection in Him (2 Timothy 2:11). ●Then we die or are raptured, which sees our bodies instantly transformed into eternal spiritual bodies with all sorts of qualities and dimensions, too wonderful to express (1 Thessalonians 4:17). ●Our journey then goes on to ruling and reigning with our Lord on this earth, and in the universe (Revelation 20:4-6, 2 Timothy 2:12). ●Our journey “ends” in a new beginning called the eternity of eternities. (2 Peter 3:10-12 Isaiah 34:4)
So our journey begins before the foundation of the earth, and “ends” at the foundation of a new universe and creation.
On your journey you will encounter angels, strange and beautiful, magnificent creatures, pure sound, sight, smell, touch, taste, all knowledge of all things. You will share our Lord’s throne. You will participate in ruling and reigning in the entire universe with Him. You will encounter and experience life on other worlds, all pure and holy.
Please don’t think for one minute that you are unimportant in this grand scheme of things.
Colossians 3:2 “Set your mind on things above, not on things of this earth.”
1 Corinthians 2:9 “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for Him.”
The following verses speak of other worlds: Hebrews 1:1-2, Hebrews 11:3 Isaiah 45:12.
The often-used word “hosts” is Strong’s H6633, meaning “army, intelligent beings”.
How can we be alone in the universe when heaven is out there, angels and incredible beings?
The following verses imply our eternal future in the universe: (Hover your mouse over them)
2 Timothy 2:12, Revelation 22:5, Daniel 7:27, Isaiah 9:7, Hebrews 12:1, Romans 8:19-22.
The amazing benefits:
You are no accident and there is no trivial purpose for your existence...Be holy now it pays great, eternal, incorruptible dividends!
●Man’s way to holiness: Try to be good. Work it from the outside to the inside.
●God’s way to holiness: You are perfect inside by the new-birth, and now work it to the outside.
Man’s way is cursed and is a failure, and has been from the day dot.
God’s way is the way to eternal riches.
Psalm 119:142 “Your righteousness (holiness) is an everlasting righteousness...”
Psalm 111:3 “His righteousness endures forever.” (When it’s in us, we endure forever.)
So, to get that inner spiritual perfection from the inside to the outside we need to take up our cross daily, and put to death that which is not of God. The Bible way is death to self, the world and the sin created by the demonic forces.
If you die to self, the world and the demonic, what’s left? Nothing much is left, except all the marvels of the kingdom of God, holiness, and a grand, great, glorious future forever and ever.
The end of all things satanic is eternal destruction. The end of all things temporal is destruction. A life’s journey chasing material goods, pleasure, and happiness is the way to great regret.
Hebrews 11:25 “...There is pleasure in sin for season.”
A kingdom journey growing in the knowledge of Him has a deep peace surrounding it with many great eternal rewards soon to manifest.
Our incredible journey means that we have to change and re-prioritise many things as we go down this road of dramatic discovery. We must re-calibrate and re-adjust our lives and priorities. We must be prepared to fall flat (literally) on our faces in repentance and receive correction from the Lord.
The enemy of your journey:
Biblical Christianity is a danger to the world, the self-life and the demonic, all saturated with Satan.
The unsaved hate true biblical holiness, but it is absolute true love. You can only see that when your life is in Him.
We must tear our heart open to God and His word. That produces a change in your thinking and desires. That then changes your words which creates your reality.
You can’t just pray, name and claim prosperity for your greed. You can pray, shout, yell, scream swing from the chandeliers, and get nothing from the Lord. But when you have had your beliefs and thinking radically smashed and changed by the work of the cross, then you will be praying in line with God’s will for you.
When you have no active knowledge of God and His word, you are an island to yourself, adrift in an ocean of uncertainty and variables. Your conscience is in tune with the god of this world and his will you do. You are blind and deaf to the beautiful voice of God and the all the glories of holiness.
The biggest motivation of fallen man is to replace the things of God with materialism. Money is his faith! Modern man wants money, and possessions. He wants pleasure with no pain. “Me now”, is his chant. But true biblical truth and reality is to set your eyes and heart on that which is above.
The world of materialism is temporal. Yes we sanctify what we need to function as believers, but the world is not our source.
Proverbs 23:5 “Will you set your eyes on that which is not? For riches certainly make themselves wings. They fly away like an eagle towards heaven.”
Psalm 119:37-38 “Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things and revive me in Your way. Establish Your word to Your servant, who is devoted to fearing You.”
The big enemy attack on believers is against the truth. It comes from pulpits, teachers, YouTube ministries (not all), and others who are of the spirit of error.
When no one knows what truth is anymore, value goes out of the window. Truth and value go together. Truth is liberating and never confusing.
Blind acceptance of the world and its ways is a great enemy. Blind acceptance of much that comes from the pulpit is also your enemy. Today you need discernment like never before.
Too many are shallow, and superficial, with no depth, no strong solid foundation, and no cross. They are impersonators of each other, parrots and plagiarists. They are a fake knock-off of the original error, no different to a copy machine. They are phoney forgers with the insight of Polly the parrot.
These mimicking monkeys have a growing group of devoted disciples. They rehash and regurgitate error disguised as truth.
The biblical watchman has a vital role for the church today. In many ways, he is like the eyes and ears of the church, especially as we move into prophetic times like never before. Obviously, the watchman is an enemy of the devil and his world.
Tragically, the ministry of the watchman has become polluted by many false watchmen, and by attacks from within segments of the church itself – especially the denominational, Spirit-less churches.
Of the many rewards and crowns that will be given to believers who meet the conditions, one is specifically for the watchmen and others who watch for the coming of the Lord.
Those who come against the watchers, and there are many, including ministers, are in Satan’s service trying to rob the watchmen of their crown! They are sneaky thieves!
“Take heed no one robs you of your reward!” (Colossians 2:8, Revelation 3:11)
Are you a shining light?
■The world measures success in material terms. ■The Christian will have success measured by eternal brightness!
The ultimate measure of the success of your journey will be seen by everyone, for all eternity. The measure is likened to the brightness of a light.
Daniel 12:3 “Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever.”
Matthew 13:43 “The righteous shall shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He, who has ears to hear, let him hear!”
Proverbs 4:18 “The path (journey) of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.”
Ecclesiastes 8:1 “Who is like a wise man and who knows the interpretation of a thing? A man’s wisdom makes his face shine, and the sternness of his face is changed.”
Philippians 2:15 “Become blameless and harmless children of God, without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world.”
Job 11:17-18 (Repentance) “Your life would be brighter than noonday. Though you were dark, you would be like the morning, and you would be secure, because there is hope...”
The Christians measure of your success is seen biblically as your eternal brightness. (Daniel 12:3, 1 Corinthians 15:41, 1 Corinthians 3:13, Philippians 2:15)
Paul compares the things of the material word to cow dung! (Philippians 3:8)
The world’s measure of success is how much cow dung you have accumulated. Your material wealth is the world’s measure.
That’s quite a contrast: A bright godly light or cow dung!
I recall, a long time ago, someone being asked if he could have anything he wanted, what it would be? He said a red Ferrari. What an absolute idiot! I was not far behind in the “idiot” stakes! Shortly after that I did have a red Ferrari in my garage. It belonged to a friend whose driveway was too high for the low car, so I had it “beautifying” my garage, but without the keys. (At least I did sort-of have a Ferrari for a while!)
I can assure you that my priorities have long since changed – radically. Today if someone gave me a red Ferrari, I’d drive the hell out it and then sell it – now with it being sanctified!
Romans 8:6 “To be Ferrari (carnally) minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”
I have lived a thrill-filled life of many incredible journeys into the wilds, forests and deserts of Southern Africa, working on endangered species, always with an element of excitement. I have journeyed to many of the world’s most beautiful places, but none comes anywhere near this spiritual, eternal journey.
We will soon receive the full manifestation of our salvation, new bodies, holiness, righteousness and eternal victory as we are transformed.
1 Corinthians 15:41-42 (The glorious body) “How are the dead raised up? All are not the same...there are celestial bodies and terrestrial bodies. The glory of the celestial one and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars. For one differs from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead...”
Our rewards for what we did on this earth in response to God’s call, will be built into our very being for all to see forever. Our brightness will shine from within us
Job 5:8-9 “As for me, I will seek God, and to God I will commit my cause – who does great things and unsearchable, marvellous things without number.” (Job 37:5-15)
The end of our journey:
The end of our journey as believes is magnificent beyond description.
As we see all these things with our spiritual eyes, we get to the place where we bring others along the journey too. Our job is to assist them in having their eyes opened to this new holy kingdom of glory. We are pearls of great price, and jewels of tremendous value in God’s kingdom.
Malachi 3:17 (The book of remembrance) “They shall be Mine says the Lord of hosts, on the day that I make them My jewels.”
Isaiah 61:10 “I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation. He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorns herself with jewels.”
Time is your friend or foe:
Psalm 60:4 “You have given a banner to those who fear You, that it may be displayed because of the truth.”
Our time is running out fast. It’s not just that our time is running out, but that the opportunity to shine brightly forever is running out and our ability to influence others. Some will be saved with great reward and others with no rewards at all, but will still be saved. (1 Corinthians 3:15)
Our time here on earth is finite and it’s the “dial” to our eternal brightness!
The average person breathes 672,768,000 times in an 80-yr lifetime. Then he stops, but in reality he lives forever. Each breath can have accumulating value for you!
Our journey takes us more deeply into holiness, honour and beauty, and all things of God, with eternal consequences. It’s time to wake up!
Psalm 13:3 “Consider and hear me, O God; enlighten my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death.”
Psalm 119:18 “Open my eyes that I may see wondrous things from Your word.”
Job 22:28 “You shall declare a thing and it shall be established for you; so light will shine on your ways.”
I want to assure you that I and The Prophetic Scroll are in this with the main purpose of glorifying our God and His kingdom, and assisting you on your glorious journey.
Acts 20:24 “I do not count my life dear to me, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Yeshua, to testify to the grace of God.”
2 Peter 1:2-3 “Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord. His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue.”
This incredible journey is an amazing adventure.
Are you an incitement to others to join you on the incredible journey? Are you a “banner of truth to the nations?”
Mix of some of my pix, blended together.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
