- 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 536: August 25th 2020.
Knowing the time (Part 3)
We are in the era of the forerunners of the four riders of the apocalypse. These four riders will bring with them great tribulation, troubles death and dramas. They are also seen as the “seal judgements” being opened by our Lord, for release, in the Revelation.
The Bible is a powerful road map showing us the end from the beginning. (Isaiah 46:10) God also reveals to a few of His servants the timing of these end-time things.
The characteristics of this time period:
It is very important to know the devil’s devices and to know what is about to transpire and why, so that we may know the time and know how to avoid the pitfalls. We must know and take hold of God’s provisions for us through His word and His gifts of the Spirit.
Things are dovetailing together now, or should we say, vulture-tailing!
The greatest end time sign is deception. Our Lord warned of it numerous times, specifically related to these end days. We are not in the tribulation yet, but we are in the forerunner period.
We are seeing deception increase at a phenomenal rate.
Matthew 24:24-25 “False christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders, so as to deceive, if possible even the elect, see I have told you beforehand.”
Daniel 8:25 “Through his cunning he (antichrist) shall cause deceit to prosper under his hand, and he shall magnify himself (pride) in his heart. He shall destroy many in their prosperity (peace). He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without human hand.”
Revelation 13:14 “He (antichrist) performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.”
Great signs and wonders are not always a sign of the truth. Correct doctrine is.
We are now in the post-God, me - now era. This of necessity means we are in the post-truth era. How true that is! It. Pride’s doctrine is: “I am”, “I will”, “me now.”
Biblical doctrine must be divisive. Truth must sting like a bee. It must take exception to a world of error! It must take you down, clean you up, reconstruct you, and then lift you up. That is the work of the cross.
Deceptions works through: Pride, Laziness, ignorance, renouncing the truth, false doctrine, demons, occult, curses, elevating traditions of man, elevating the group speak of peers and the world.
We need a plumbline of truth so that we can build our lives according to its truth.
Identifying deception’s food – pride:
At this time, the pride of man is a pandemic! That is a mark of the times. Today pride is ultra-dangerous. It is spiritually charged like never before.
Pride always rejects the work of the cross. It is, “you can do it, and yes you can.” It is, “me now” gone to pot. It is self glorified.
How to identify a minister or ministry full of pride: ●They have very little to say or teach on the power of the cross. ●They will speak a lot about themselves and what they think, and their own experiences. ●The living power of the Spirit of God will be absent. ●They will be full of error with no repentance. ●Normally, they are not baptised in the Spirit and even come against it.
You can tell which teacher of the word to trust. ●They must have a track record of being right and not wrong especially about prophecy. ●They must know the Bible backwards, but also know the author – the – the Spirit of God. ●They must be free from hobby-horse doctrines. ●They must produce healthy, good fruit that endures, amongst their flock.
They will be in agreement with other solid, safe Spirit-led Bible teachers and ministers.
Be careful of those who are never regarded but the deep, mature teachers and leaders. We need the plurality of mature elders, to be in agreement. (Not necessarily on every minor point.)
The Spirit of truth is your great friend, lover and comforter. The spirit of error is your secret enemy, masquerading as your friend. He truly hates you.
►The great big fruit of truth is being right with God.
►The big fruit of the spirit of error is being wrong!
►Error attaches itself like a virus to the pride in man.
►Humility opens the door for God. Pride shuts it and opens the door for Satan.
►There is always great peace in holiness, because holiness is of God.
►There is great stress in sin because sin is of its god Satan.
►Sin’s god is Satan. Sin is service to Satan.
If you think the truth will just descend upon you in these days, because you’re special or something, think again. You must fight for (contend for) the faith. (Jude 1:3)
A teacher in pride attracts like-minded little exclusive clublets called “the wrong brigade.” They feed off each other. They can’t take correction. They bite when rebuked.
In their pride these teachers can’t see their own failures. Far too many have a false idea of their self-importance, thinking that they are God’s voice for the entire church!
Most of the “always wrong brigade” never learns. They keep coming back with more harm to inflict on the gullible, and the new Christian. They think they are serving God.
►Do you really think God is going to give someone who is always wrong, and who is ignorant of the entire Bible a great message for the whole church?
Dressed up deception:
Deception has many dresses. The dangerous, ugly dresses have “truth” emblazoned all over the garment. It is only when the Spirit of God shows you the power of deception, in the various manifestation of pride, and its evil power – sin, then you can be free.
There is an available power that comes to believer through the application of the cross. There is a power of evil deception that comes through the failure to apply the cross. (1 Corinthians 1:18, Philippians 3:10)
Listen for the key words of deception in a minister. They will often be words or behaviour of pure manipulation. Be careful of people who always go outside of the scriptures for their “truth”. That amounts to condemned, “private interpretation.” (2 Peter 1:20)
100% of rapture dreams and rapture utterances prefaced with, “the Lord told me,” have been wrong. Every single one! None have come to pass in spite of the many who preface their garbage with: “It’s 100% for sure!”
Being repeatedly wrong on rapture predictions cheapens the entire doctrine and identifies you as a wolf-crier, not a watchman. It demonstrates perfectly that you have no biblical authority or Spirit leading.
If a watchman sees the wrong thing he shoots himself and the people in the foot.
1 Corinthians 14:8 “If a trumpet makes an uncertain sound, who will prepare for battle?”
Jeremiah 5:31 “The prophets prophecy falsely, and the priest rule by their own power; and My people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end.”
Those who don’t know the time of the Lord’s coming are described by God Himself in His word. He calls them “blind guides,” “the wicked servant”
But in all these things, don’t go into the ditch on the other side of the road, rejecting all watchmen. Keep a solid Spirit led approach and focus.
Replacement theology disguised:
At this time you need to steer clear of all those portraying doctrines of replacement theology, even in partial form, because there is a most powerful evil spiritual, demonic force behind it.
Firstly, I’m not into naming names, unless the Lord says so, but I most certainly will name, identify and come against false doctrine or the spirit of error.
The Revelation 12-sign teachers were all wrong. Today some still flog that dead dangerous horse of subliminal replacement theology.
Almost every verse used by the Revelation 12-sign crowd was in error. It was replacement theology from beginning to end, with many dangerous, cursed deceptions thrown in like Nibiru.
If you read the surrounding context of their verses, you will see that they apply to Israel and not the church. Isaiah 66:8 was the classic. (Read it and the following verses.)
The church is not in the book of Revelation after chapter 4. So why then has the church replaced Israel in chapter 12, according to the Revelation 12-sign teachers?
The warning is that replacement theology grows deadly ugly legs!
There is a danger in getting the feasts of the Lord wrong too.
Those who say the seven feasts have all been fulfilled in the events of the cross are obviously proponents of subliminal replacement theology. The Feast of Trumpets marks the dispensation shift from the church age to Israel’s time – the tribulation period.
Every single proponent of a post-tribulation rapture ignores the feasts, because they signal the dispensation shift at “trumpets.”
If you claim that the Feast of Trumpets has already been fulfilled, you are getting rid of Israel’s time.
If you dislike the Jews, be very careful, because you will be led to the Christian Hitler in the pulpit or on YouTube, where you will find many verses being stamped with an invisible Swastika. You will find no cross of Calvary being presented, but the modern gas chambers of replacement theology!
It’s a good idea to set your heart to love and choose what God has!
The only way to be truly safe and protected from becoming anti-Semitic with its terrible consequences is by knowing God’s prophetic word on Israel. If not, you do and will know the word of the world and its god, and him you will follow!
Joshua 11:20 “It was of the Lord to harden their hearts, that they should come against Israel in battle, the He might utterly destroy them, and that they might receive no mercy, but that He might destroy them, as the Lord had commanded Moses.”
The hookers are coming:
Israel, it’s your time. The great clock of ages is ticking. The great clock signalling the big dispensation change is casting its beautiful, fearful and golden light over your ancient walls and gates – about to open to your Messiah – our Messiah!
The Prince of peace is coming, but only after the hookers!
The hookers are coming with big hooks to hooks in the jaws, to draw the people into war! The fateful hooks of great terror will draw the nations into the battle ground of WW111. (Ezekiel 38:4, 29:4-5)
Whichever way you look at it, this war is coming, ready or not, peace treaty or not!
The world cries for peace, but I say: “Peace, peace when there is no peace.” (Jeremiah 6:14)
The true Christian can be likened to an invisible spy in the enemy’s war room! We know what is coming. War and then peace is the set of the clock.
We are now seeing a most important forerunner. It is the forerunner of the antichrist peace treaty. This is the smaller Arab / Israeli peace deals. It is a forerunner of the big one, but not the big one yet.
We have seen the forerunners of locust plagues, famine and disease. The big forerunner still to run is war. The big one, WW111, can blast onto the scene any day now.
Staggering insights into WW111:
Ezekiel 38 speaks of this war in which Russia and her allies come against Israel and her allies. But as we look further into Ezekiel 39, we see how this war will end and what will be the consequences. We see some remarkable things relating to the timing of it!
“Fire is sent on Magog and the coastlands. The dead bodies cover the mountains of the Golan. It takes seven years to clean up after the war and seven months to bury the dead, just where they fell, implying some sort of radiation. (Ezekiel 39:9, 12)
Ezekiel 39:22-29 “So the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day forward. The Gentiles shall know...I will not hide My face from them anymore, for I shall have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel.”
As this war ends, we see Israel being saved en masse. As the war ends, even some Gentile nations recognise the hand of God in it all.
This war is not Armageddon, which is ended by the Second Coming. This war is ended by Israel and the veil being lifted off the eyes of the Jews.
For this reason and others, I say that this war will take place right at the start of the tribulation period or just before. Hundreds of other verses reveal that the salvation of the Jews goes into overdrive for the seven-year period.
Do you see what this means? We are close! Israel, it’s your time!!
The wise will heed the warnings, and get, and be ready.
The world is about to get frog marched, with many doing the goose step, with controlling hooks in jaws, while wolves in pulpits, left behind, howl as they all ride the storm of tribulation, charging to disaster.
Isaiah 42:6 “I the Lord have called you (Israel) in righteousness, and will hold your hand. I will keep you and give you as a covenant to the people, as a light to the Gentiles.”
Isaiah 60:3 “The Gentiles shall come to your light and kings to the brightness of your rising.”
All the troubles today and soon to come are because of the world’s rebellion to God.
Life’s biggest mistake is to ignore the warnings of God.
The police, the military and all authorities are being made impotent, defrocked and defunded. “The office of the authorities is of God.” (Romans 13:1-2) What a surprise the liberal left brigade has coming: You don’t defund God!
The Spirit-less church is a dead temple made with dead stones and dead hands. Babylon and its tower were made with man-made bricks and mortar, while the temple in Jerusalem was made with stone not cut near the temple. This speaks of God made stone and man’s futility. (1 Kings 6:7, Acts 17:24)
Best is to do things God’s way!
Psalm 33:10-11 “The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing. He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect. The counsel of the Lord stands forever.”
Psalm 46:6 “The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved. He uttered His voice and the earth melted. The Lord of hosts, the God of Jacob (Israel) is our fortress.”
World, you will soon be lamenting: Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away!
World, the ominous writing is on the wall. You have been weighed in the balances and found wanting. The harbinger of your destruction has spoken.
The prophetic clock is ticking, chiming, and alarming, the pendulum swings ominously. The hour hand approaches the dreaded midnight hour and the minute hand proclaims the end.
I took the background picture in one of our giant sycamore tree forests and inserted the Namaqualand flowers.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
