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 516: April 7th 2020.
The Feast Season:
These are the words of life!
We are now at the start of the feast season. These are the seven feasts of the Lord. This will be a most dramatic, extraordinary and “theatrical” feast season!
This feast season begins with Passover on April 8th (Wednesday)
As Passover begins Israel goes into lockdown because of a modern plague!
The stage is set for the spectacular drama to begin, but for most the performance will be a shocking tragedy of terror. For them it will be a heart-arresting and heart-stopping, spine-tingling, plague in their playhouse!
Dress rehearsals are over; the Maestro is warming up for His magnificent masterpiece!
This edition is of great importance, although it will be shocking for many. For those flowing with the Spirit of God, it will excite you and give you great comfort and assurance.
The profound purpose of the seven feasts:
The unsaved are legally, spiritually unable to see the future from God’s perspective. This includes the Spirit-less churches and those of replacement theology and all anti-Semitism.
You need to have spiritual eyes to understand the foreknowledge of God, which is absolutely required in examining the feasts, otherwise your source of information is the cursed news media and the traditions of man.
The seven feasts plot the major peaks of prophecy through the ages. Each feast points to and has a prophetic fulfilment. There is and must be a required order in which the feasts occur. (For example, you can’t have the resurrection before the cross.)
The feast season as an entity, has an overall prophetic message. I will deal with that further down.
Here are the feasts and their prophetic representation, in their biblical order:
●Passover (The cross) (April 8). ●Unleavened bread (Sinless perfection). (April 9), ●Firstfruits (The resurrection) (April 12). ●Pentecost (Church age) (May 31). ●Rosh Hashanah (The rapture and start of tribulation) (Sept 19th 20th). ●Atonement (Wrath of God) (September 28). ●Tabernacles (Second Coming / Millennium) (October 3).
The feasts are not exclusively for Israel. They are for anyone interested in God’s plan of the ages. The church age itself is indicated by the middle feast of Pentecost.
If you deny, replace or interfere with the feasts you are in fact denying God’s plan for Israel. Yes the feasts are symbolic, but they point to a very dramatic reality!
The overall prophetic message of the entire feast season:
The feasts broadly deal with and plot Israel’s course through history as revealed in the powerful line of words below:
►Israel: ●Called ●Elected ●Rebelled ●Rejected ●Regathered ●Repented ●Received.
These words above are the peaks of prophecy. They occurred in reality up to the word “Regathered.” That’s where we are now.
The last two words, repented and received, are still future and are encapsulated in the fulfilment of the last three feasts .
Passover and the counterfeit:
The Passover blood of the lamb saved Israel, and pointed to the blood of the Lamb of God, our Lord slain for us all.
At Passover the blood of lambs was sprinkled on the doorposts of the Jewish homes to protect and preserve them.
The life is in the blood of the Lamb (Leviticus 17:11)
With Passover being the first of the feasts on the 8h April and Easter, the counterfeit, on the 12th April, It is good to contrast the two next to each other.
►Passover is exclusive! That may shock some, but it is not for any unbeliever to participate in. Passover is all about salvation in the shed blood of the Lamb of God. Salvation is exclusive. Of course it’s for anyone who wants to get saved, but it is exclusively through the cross.
Here it is in type, which speaks of the exclusivity of salvation through the cross:
Exodus 12:43 “The Lord said to Moses and Aaron , ‘This is the ordinance of the Passover: No foreigner shall eat it.’”
►Easter (and Christmas) is not exclusive. The unsaved world participates in them fully.
Jeremiah 23:13 “I have seen the folly in the prophets of Samaria. They prophesied by Baal and caused My people to err.” (Baal represents all the pagan practices of Babylon, including the origin of the practises of Easter and Christmas.)
The Passover meal is rich in symbolism, with every item of importance, and all pointing to the cross.
The Passover meal is called the Seder. This word means “order” The entire meal must be conducted in a specific order. All elements point towards the prophetic fulfilment in the cross. It is preceded by the “Haggadah” meaning “the telling” (of the Passover story and the Exodus).
The “telling” is the story of Passover to the children. Contrast this with Easter adults telling their children to look for pagan eggs in the garden!
The central items of the Passover meal are the lamb, the red wine and unleavened bread.
According to the Bible, the Passover wafer (Matzos) must be striped and spiked, representing the work of our Lord on the cross, in Him being whipped and pierced.
Passover is all about the lamb (Ezra 6:20) and not the swine / pig.
Easter and Christmas are united by the blood of the pig. (Eating of the Easter ham and the Yule ham.) Lamb may be eaten at the traditional Easter meal as well as the pig. But this represents the mixture of the clean and unclean, truth and error – always cursed.
Symbols of Easter: The pig (Easter ham), rabbit, (fertility sex symbol) eggs (pagan fertility symbols), un-spiked and un-striped wafer, and numerous other Babylonian customs.
Symbols of Passover: Lamb, the wafer, spiked and striped and much more that makes up the Seder meal all pointing to the cross.
The Bible says that we are to eat the body of the Lamb – not the Catholic counterfeit swine. This is further seen in the Catholic wafer, which they say becomes the actual body of Christ at communion (Eucharist), called transubstantiation.
Thankfully, there is no Eucharist at Passover.
If the Catholic un-stripped and un-spiked wafer becomes the actual body of our Lord that means He is forever dying. No, no, no, “He died once and for all.” (Romans 6:10)
The Catholic Jesus is most certainly “another Jesus!!”
It’s worth noting that the Catholic church replaced Passover with Easter to keep the Jews out of their tradition and church.
So, with Easter replacing Passover, for much of the careless church, this now knocks out the entirety of the feasts of the Lord, and their required order. It destroys the message of all seven feasts as one.
Getting rid of the feasts and replacing them with an occult, pagan-originated, cursed custom, actually perpetuates the goal of the Holocaust, albeit in the form of anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism, replacement theology of the church, and Jew-hatred.
Passover represents the protection and survival of the children of Israel as seen in the blood of the lamb on the doorposts. If you remove Passover, and replace it with Easter, you are denying the work of the blood on the doorposts which is symbolic of the soon coming blood of the Lamb in the hearts of the Jews when they are saved en mass.
You may say that the use of paganism in the church (even just the names) is harmless. That well-used argument defies intelligent logic! Besides, the Bible condemns the use of all paganism including, just the names! (Zephaniah 1:4, Exodus 23:13)
Easter, symbolically sprinkles paganism over the doorposts of the Jews, and should we say the blood of the pig! Easter curses God’s prophetic plan for Israel.
Of course the Easter lovers will again accuse me of heresy. They will say we don’t have anything to do with paganism, while they use the name of the pagan goddess of sex – Ishtar (Easter) and sit eating their Easter ham and kids chasing pagan-fertility eggs.
Again, I remind you of some ministers who teach that the church should mix in pagan practises, so that it will have a greater reach!!
By the way, my objective here is to present the truth, undefiled and not tear into individuals.
In these days of great worldwide trouble we as Christians have the answers. We are the victors or are we? Tragically much of the army of the Lord today is full of paganism!
Deuteronomy 23:9 “When the army goes out against your enemies, then keep yourself from every wicked thing.”
***The end-time army of the Lord must be clean pure and holy to be successful.
The abomination of desolation:
Most people have no idea what the “abomination of desolation” is and why it is important.
The abomination of desolation is revealed in these verses: Daniel 11:31, 12:11, Daniel 9:27 Jeremiah 7:30, Matthew 24:15.
The abomination of desolation contrasts the holiness of God (Matthew 24:15)
The original abomination refers to Antiochus Epiphanes, the evil Jew-hating and mass-murdering Syrian king. He took on the name “Theos Epiphanes” meaning “God manifest.”
He desecrated the Temple by sacrificing a pig and shedding its blood on the altar and forcing the priests to eat its flesh. He then set up in the Temple an idol statue of Zeus the pagan depiction of Satan, which he believed to be of himself.
I’m not saying the eating of the Easter ham is this abomination of desolation. I’m simply pointing out that there is a connection! Take it or leave it.
Satan loves false teachers and “blesses” them with error. These errors may be small, but they grow into big monsters.
We are now at the time when all things relating to Israel prophetically are about to take centre stage and the enemy, even hidden in some of the church, wants to kill God’s work.
The other feasts:
After the three feasts that make up the full work of the cross through to resurrection, comes Pentecost representing the church age. Then we go into the “long hot summer” representing the whole church age, and a long gap before the first of the fall feasts, representing the rapture, the tribulation start, the wrath of God and the Second Coming, going through to the Millennium.
Rosh Hashanah (the Feast of Trumpets) is coming!!
Watch for the ducks. Ducks will start lining up in a row. They are already, but expect the ducks to goose-step into line at double time!
You will never get all people to repent. Many will when things shake and many won’t. Tough luck for the “won’t” brigade.
I have noticed more calls for repentance during the Covid19 plague than ever before. I’ve noticed many nations calling for prayer. And remember that this corona virus story is a Mickey Mouse event compared to what’s coming!
►I don’t foresee a great apostasy. I foresee a great, grand, glorious revival coming soon and very soon. (More very exciting revelation on this in the next edition.)
The message of the feasts for today:
It is totally impossible for all seven of the feasts not to be fulfilled in their order.
The feasts awaiting a prophetic fulfilment will see dramatic things occur on those feast days. Watch and see. If not this year, it will be next year.
My friends, we are in exciting times. They are going to get a lot more exciting fast. Make sure your spiritual anchor is secure. Set your heart to love the truth and reject the error.
Why is the salvation of the Jews so important? It points to the nearness and time of the coming of the Lord. It means the world will be evangelised like never before - in the tribulation. It means your time is running out fast!
Pharaoh, Herod, Rome, Hitler, the popes, and many church leaders are of the same spirit because they reject the true work of the Spirit of God today.
But in reality it is this very rise of anti-Semitism worldwide today, that is a sign of the soon coming of the Lord and the rapture.
You, dear reader can fall under God’s curse, or you can become part of the blessing of God, just on this issue alone. Don’t for a moment think its okay to go with the crowd.
Silence on the Israel issue carries the same curse. (Genesis 12:3)
May I share with you a snippet of recent personal testimony?
Some time ago I was awakened in the early hours by someone calling my name. It was vivid, loud and alive. It was real and not a part of a dream. I awoke, sat up and there was no one there. So I put it on the shelf, so to speak.
Then a few months ago, I was likewise awakened in the early hours by a sudden, very loud trumpet blast. (I think I did mention it here) Again there was no one nearby. Again, I put it on the shelf. It was not a dream.
A few nights ago a similar thing occurred. This time the loud, real sound was some sort of unearthly alarm bell. Again it was not a dream. It shook me awake.
Now the whole lot comes together. The sense I have from the Lord is that He is calling me, to bring attention to and to alert His people that the trumpet of their salvation is about to blast and they are to awaken. Finally, the sense I have is that the alarm bells are ringing for the world – the unsaved world at large. Your time is up!
The Prophetic Scroll will keep you on the pulse of these things as the clock ticks. They are imminent and on the door step.
Roll on Rosh Hashanah! (Regular readers know what I mean.)
Tick-tock, time flies by and is spent! Your time-keeper’s ticking clock is a stopwatch. It’s also an alarm clock, and a chiming Big Ben, and the pendulum of your heart. You are a living finite, yet infinite timepiece.
Tick tock, your time on earth is running out. It’s about to switch to eternal daylight time! Fleeting earthly time will fly away and universal time will come into play.
Many are fast asleep while awake; their clock is tick tocking a lullaby of hell just ahead!
When your time is spent, what did you buy with it? What do you have to show? Did you buy the truth? (Proverbs 23:23)
Tick-tock, world - your time is almost up!
In many ways the church is now at the crossroads. For some a dead end lies just ahead. For others the road twists and curves, but makes it to glory. For others, they are already on the edge of glory.
It is time to feast on the Lord and His wonderful word.
It is time to protect yourself, your thinking and your coming reward! “Let no one rob you of your reward.” (Colossians 2:18, 1 Corinthians 9:24, Philippians 3:14)
What is your spiritual trademark, your branding imprinted in your heart? You can choose the brand name of the God of Israel or the god of the Catholics. You can choose Rome or Jerusalem. You can choose the Spirit of Adonai or the spirit of Adolf!
True love is the work of the cross of Messiah. It is the main underlying symbol of the feasts in their entirety. When you see the big picture from the godly, biblical perspective you see that everything culminates in the biblical definition of love.
All anti-Semitism, replacement theology, Jew-hatred and Israel-denial is the killing of love and replacing it with true hatred.
The first feast is the work of the cross, the last feast, Tabernacles, is the presence of God and everything in between is the greatest, unparalleled drama of all time!
►Exodus23:25 “You shall serve the Lord your God and He shall bless your bread and water, and I will take sickness away from the midst of you.” (Obeying the Lord here refers to observing the first three feasts, which point to the events of the cross)
I took the lion picture while on foot in the Savuti area of Botswana and mixed in the trees.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
