- 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.

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 515: March 30th 2020.
These are the words of life!
Things are not out of control! God has ultimate control. God reveals His will in His word and law. He brings warning for the purpose of repentance and correction. If rejected, judgement comes and finally punishment comes.
In this edition I want to look at God’s judgement upon this world, culminating in the seven-year tribulation period, and then come forward to today, so that we can see just how accurately the forerunners to the tribulation, fit in to the big picture.
Right up front - we are not in the tribulation yet, as some are teaching, but we are not far off!
We are in the forerunner period. This is the time of foreboding forewarnings, foreshowing and foreshadowing the greatest nightmare the world will ever see. The things we are seeing now are an ominous omen, a harbinger and a precursor!
Before the unsaved world is horror and terror and great glory and peace for the Christian.
The way God works:
Again, God’s method to produce repentance and correction is: His law and warnings, then judgement and then punishment.
Jeremiah 6:10 “To whom shall I speak and give warning, that they may hear? Indeed their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot give heed. Behold the word of the Lord is a reproach to them. They have no delight in it.”
God’s law defines sin and holiness, and His word shows the way to be free from sin and the way into holiness. This is the work of the cross, but God also requires the nations to have a degree of righteousness in them, by upholding God in a more general way.
Throughout the scriptures we see examples of individuals, and entire nations repenting and turning to God in the face of His judgements. We also see many turning away from God, rejecting repentance and God’s ways.
So, it is repentance or rejection of it.
For all true believers, our Lord has paid the price for our sins through the judgement upon Yeshua at the cross, so we are free indeed. The age of grace has also affected the world. But be aware that the age of grace is coming to an end, and the world will fall under judgement and punishment.
Forewarning creates division between those who heed the warnings and those who reject them. It’s like the judge in a court room. The guilty can admit their guilt, repent, and may find some mercy.
If God defines sin and says there will be consequences for your indulgence in sin. You can’t blame God for the consequences. That’s the same as blaming gravity when you hit the ground after falling.
It really is the job of the church to bring notice to the world of what sin is, and their need to repent.
There is coming a time when the wickedness of man reaches fullness. That is when the grace of God runs out. Of course, personal, individual repentance always produces the goods. But worldwide sin will soon see warning change to judgement and then to disastrous punishment.
Many people will turn to God in repentance in the tribulation, producing the greatest revival in history. At the same time many others will turn against God and curse Him for spoiling their day, their lusts, pleasures and idolatry.
What is the time please?
We are now at a critical point in time! The Bible says that the Lord knows the time. (Zechariah 14:7) We are commanded of God to know the time of His coming. (Matthew 24:33)
We can see the numerous signs of the coming seven-year tribulation period all around us. That obviously means we can extrapolate from it, the time of the pre-tribulation rapture.
Any and all major world catastrophes at this point in time, are of major importance. It’s all because of exactly where we are on God’s prophetic time clock and map.
There continues to be a terrible deception created by many minsters who repeatedly screech like parrots that no one knows the time. That creates the impression that no one knows the time of any of these end-time events, so why bother even looking. Apart from that being a contradiction of verses like “I command you to know the time” it causes an end-time lethargy, denial and scoffing.
There are numerous signs of the coming tribulation, the arising of the antichrist and coming salvation of Israel. We are commanded to know both the “time” and the “season”.
I have said many times recently that things are about to develop suddenly. In fact Edition 503 is entitled “Suddenly” and was on this subject alone. I have mentioned in many Sabbath Reports that we are on the verge of these things breaking out suddenly.
Psalm 73:17-19 “When I went into the sanctuary, I understood their end, You set them in slippery places; You cast them down to destruction, O how they are brought to desolation suddenly. They are utterly consumed with terrors.”
God always warns before judgment (Amos 3:7-8). Legally, you can’t judge someone where there is no law to warn people. We see warnings with Noah, Lot, Babylon, Jericho, and Nineveh. In fact all the world empires were warned of their impending destruction.
The true believer is guilt-free through the cross, but still needs to repent when he falls. National repentance is also required, albeit slightly different.
Here is an example of national repentance in Israel. First we see her condition and then the answer in the verse below it:
Isaiah 59:9-10 “...We look for light, but there is darkness! For brightness, but we walk in blackness...We are as dead men in desolate places.”
Micah 7:19-20 “God will again have compassion on us, and will subdue our iniquities. You will cast our sins into the depths of the sea. You will give truth to Jacob (Israel)...”
In the verse below we see rebellion and rejection of the word of God by Egypt’s leader. We know where that ended!
Exodus 5:2 “Pharaoh said, ‘Who is the Lord that I should obey His voice to let Israel go.’”
That verse above has such profound prophetic implication for today as well!
Here is the shocking end result of proud arrogant end-time man and his rejection of warnings and repentance, and the love of himself and his sin, during the tribulation:
Revelation 9:21-22 “The rest of mankind who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone and wood which can neither see nor hear nor walk; and they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.
Revelation 16:11 “They blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores and they did not repent of their deeds.”
Today masses of people are turning to the occult for solutions.
Isaiah 47:12-15 “Stand now with your enchantments and the multitude of your sorceries in which you have laboured from your youth...You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators (fortune tellers) stand up and save you from these things that shall come upon you...The fire shall consume them...No one shall save you.”
Genuinely stupid people blame God for bringing or allowing judgement and for upsetting their lifestyles. Wise people repent.
Revelation 18:4 “I heard another voice from heaven saying, ‘Come out of her My people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive her plagues.”
Acts 2:40 “...He (Peter) exhorted them, saying, ‘Be saved from this perverse generation.”
Wisdom from ancient times is your refreshing, loving friend full of promise and victory.
When it comes to big worldwide catastrophes we need to look at the cause, and the effects as revealed in the Bible.
The ultimate cause of the judgements and wrath of God in the tribulation period is the sin and rebellion of man to God, His word, as well as their treatment of Israel.
We are now on the very verge of the long-suffering of God coming to an end.
Genesis6:3 “My Spirit will not strive with man forever...”
I’ve compiled this insight of God’s view of fallen man reaching his catastrophic end:
Isaiah 24:1-23 (Summarised) “The Lord makes the earth empty and distorts its surface and scatters its inhabitants. It will be so, with the people, so with the priest...The earth mourns and fades away, the haughty (proud) people of the earth languish. The earth is defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the laws (of God) and broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore the curse has devoured the earth and few are left. All joy is darkened and the mirth of the land is gone. In the city, desolation is left...The foundations of the earth are shaken and the earth is violently broken. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard. Its transgression shall be heavy upon it and it shall fall and not rise again. It shall come to pass in that day that the Lord will punish on high the exalted ones (demonic) and on the earth, the kings of the earth...The Lord of hosts will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem and before His elders gloriously.”
Now, along the same lines, let’s look at the four riders of the apocalypse in Revelation 6:1-8.
This remarkable passage begins with the white horse rider which is widely held to be the antichrist, representing deception. Then we see the immediate release of the other deadly riders. They are: The rider on the fiery red horse who takes peace from the earth and causes masses of people to kill each other in war. Then we see the black horse rider with a pair of scales in his hand representing world-wide scarcity and poverty. Then we see the pale horse rider whose name was “death,” and hell followed him and power was given to him to kill a fourth of the inhabitants of the earth with hunger, and the beasts.
Let me summarise for you the main points of the four riders:
Deception is the first big one. This parallels with the first warning of the end times from our Lord – “Take heed that you are not deceived.” (Matthew 24:4) Today we are seeing deception amongst the masses really intensifying. Many will fall for the antichrist. Then we have peace taken away and war arising, killing many. Right now, the wars we are seeing are Mickey Mouse affairs compared to what’s coming. Then we see large scale starvation, pestilence and the like. These are arising now, but again in a limited form compared to what’s coming.
The four riders of the apocalypse are the riders of the ultimate storm – a perfect storm. Many people will send out a mayday call to God, some will call to the devil and some will just give up and go with the flow.
These events above, clearly take place in the tribulation period, from which the church will be spared due to the pre-tribulation rapture.
But many of the events of the tribulation have forerunners.
The effects of forerunners are a call to repentance now and a warning of coming judgement and punishment. This is where we are now!
What comes next?
The effects of the Covid 19 virus are already being seen in a call for a new world order by some, a cashless society and population marking and control mechanisms. These are all tribulation occurrences, but we see them appearing in infancy now.
A new one-world-system with a united world religion reaching to ‘victory’, just like Babel, is the goal.
●Isaiah 10:13-14 Speaks of the worldwide massive economic control system instituted by the antichrist in the last days. ●Deuteronomy 28:15-68 speaks of the curses that come about as a result of disobeying God. ●Matthew 24:7-8 Speaks of nations rising up in war, and the ●increase of pestilence and earthquakes.
These all have forerunners to them. Can you see them?
If our Lord is coming soon, so is the tribulation period and the arrival of the antichrist. That means the forerunners are: An outpouring of the Spirit, tribulation-like judgements in infancy, and the spirit of antichrist deception.
The next big thing to strike the world will be a sharp rise in food prices causing starvation – thanks to the effects of Covid 19 and massive locust plagues beginning now from North Africa, through to the Middle East, Asia and India.
Earth’s upheavals will continue to increase.
The guns of war worldwide have been silent during the pandemic. That is about to change.
Israel is about to blast back onto centre-stage again.
A principle was established by God, bringing diseases and calamities on the Egyptians because they had held the children of Israel captive. (Exodus 9:14-16, Deuteronomy 28:22)
Only a deceived idiot messes with God’s plans for Israel.
It is inconceivable that with all the judgements that are here and coming, that there will not be a huge world revival. It is in fact evident already in the east. Combined with the coming salvation of the Jews – exciting times are around the corner!
We must “discern the times” (Luke 12:56).
Yeshua says you’re a hypocrite if you don’t discern the times!
Esther 4:14 “For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”
The key, main points of this edition are:
God’s law warns; then comes judgement, which then morphs into punishment when no repentance is achieved.
Many individuals and many nations will repent. Many will not. Many people feign repentance simply to return a life of pleasure in sin. Many will curse God for the coming troubles. The wise will curse their own wickedness!
Many will suddenly see that they have been nothing but a cog and a pawn in the machinery of Satan’s agenda, and will repent.
The easiest people to deal with are those who repent big and believe big. The two are related!
Time is running out fast. Forerunners are forewarning now!
Things are not going to get better; they are going to get far worse suddenly! Yes the Covid19 virus will go away, but many more catastrophes are lining up at the door!
Psalm 56:3-4 David: “When I’m afraid, I will trust in You. In God I will praise His word. In God I have put my trust. I will not fear. What can flesh do to me?
The above is a heart cry from none other than David in the fearful face of trouble. Make this a proclamation, a confession and decree.
The good news for a little while longer is: “Where sin abounds grace does much more abound”.
I mixed some of my old pictures together to form this new image.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
