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 537: September 1st 2020.
Knowing the time (Part 4)
The next few editions are critically important. I strongly suggest that you pay careful and close attention to every word. Of course, the previous “Knowing the time” editions are important as well. We are now in times of rapid prophetic fulfilment.
If you know your Bible very well, you will know the time!
●The Bible says our Lord will “show us things to come.” (John 16:13) ●The Bible says He will “show you things before they come to pass.” (John 14:29) ●The Bible says we are to “know the time” (It’s a command). (Matthew 24:32-33) ●The Bible says we are to “know the times and season.” (1 Thessalonians 5:1) ●The Bible says that a ripening fig tree (Israel) will show us when the end is near.” (Matthew 24:32)
●The Bible declares that the “secret things belong to the Lord, but other things He has revealed to us.” (Deuteronomy 29:29) ●The Bible says that He will “reveal these things to His sons, the prophets.” (Ephesians 3:5, Amos 3:7) ●The Bible says that “we are not in darkness that this day should overtake us.” (1 Thessalonians 5:4)
In this edition I will deal briefly with the arising of false prophets / watchmen. The duration and timing of the coming wars of prophecy, the nations involved, what weapons will be used, what the outcome will be and who is victor.
False teachers, prophets and watchmen:
The collective, compromised church has opened the door for the devil. They have empowered the god of this world to defeat the church if only partially.
The true church has an enormously high calling and responsibility. It is the guardian of morality, of culture and of truth. It is the light of the world.
1 Timothy 3:15 “That you might know how you ought to conduct yourself in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar, prop, support and foundation of truth.” (Amp)
Do you know what happens when you remove the pillar, prop, support and foundation of a building? It is not going to stand in the storms.
Over time the church has become consumed with the world’s materialism and how to be blessed with cars, boats, planes and lots of financial prosperity. Thankfully today, their superficial gospel has become so transparent it is exposing the mega-frauds in the pulpits.
(I believe in biblical prosperity and the need for certain material things, but it is the excessive over-balance and the manipulation involved that I’m at war with.)
With a focus on the very things Satan, as the god of this world, offered our Lord on the mountain of temptation, the church has accepted it all and failed to see the enemy coming in with his agenda.
The reason these days are dangerous is not just because of the onslaught of the evil one again Israel and the church, It is because the evil has secretly infiltrated some churches, like a cancer.
Vipers in the pulpits and their parrots in the pews have been singing “me, myself, I and my money.” The church has fought for money while its freedom is being eroded from under its nose.
How do you release the power of the devil into the church? – Just do nothing. As you lay down your spiritual armour and weapons, your focus shifts and the enemy becomes your friend. You become truly spiritually blind, and a sitting duck for the devil, or a falling Humpty.
Self is the god that displaces God in man. The un-crucified self has Satan in camouflage in the driving seat. A key to identifying self and his Satan in the church is the absence of the cross and holiness.
We are now seeing an abundance of false prophets and false watchmen, who see nothing but their own thoughts, in their blinded and confused eyes.
Identifying false prophets: They are seldom right. They never admit their error. They are self orientated, blind to the full truth, legalistic in opinions. They are soft on sin. They reject the authority of other mature solid men of God. They cause division. They do not have the fruit of the fullness of the Spirit. They use manipulative words. They are unable to see the damage they do to the prophetic word and the church. And much more!
Amazingly all these false watchmen never ever apologize for being continuously wrong and the damage they do.
Teachers must learn what is of prophetic significance and what is not.
The return of the cursed Nibiru:
The Revelation 12-sign teachers blindly followed each other in proclaiming that the world was to be annihilated by the planet Nibiru (twice the size of Jupiter) that was hurtling through space and due to strike the earth on some particular date, back then.
Of course it did not, or on any of the numerous other dates that they then put forward as impact date - because the planet does not exist.
Regular readers know that I warned of the curse attached to Nibiru over and over again.
Well, nothing has changed. Some watchmen / teachers have revived Niburu as a threat to the earth.
Nibiru is not a planet! It is a Babylonian satanic god who rides and arranges and organises the constellations to produce signs. He is the god of “crossing over” or “transition”. He was known in mythology as the “great heavenly sign”.
Nibiru is also known as Marduk, who brought the half human Annuaki hybrid humans to the earth when a giant planet approached and hung over the earth, to offload these hybrid humans in pre-adamic times. This is a counterfeit of the Adam and Eve story.
Marduk /Nibiru, was also known as “King of the earth,” because he stayed behind on the earth to create a “global human elite, with these new people when the UFO-like planet left the earth.
These Nibiru descendants were known in Egypt as the “guardian watchmen”. They were the watchmen of the signs in the stars. By the way, “Babylon” in Hebrew means “The gateway of the gods.”
One of gods of the Anunnaki people is “Anu” , known as the Great sky father, whose daughter was Ishtar (Easter)
There is much more to these myths and legends, but let me warn you that if you get into this stuff in any depth you are messing with strong curses. – Good luck!
So, why the return of the great Nibiru deception now, to the big fools?
It is because we are in the era of great deception, great evil signs, great misdirection, great lies and importantly, a UFO excuse for the rapture! “Nibiru took them”!!
Occultation is an astronomical term describing a situation when one object is obscured by another. It applies to the blind-spot area of the observer.
Many of these modern teachers and watchmen are under the spell of occultation!
Prophesied wars and Nuclear war:
Firstly, the coming wars, including WW111 are not the same as the war of Armageddon. The former occur just before or right at the start of the tribulation, while the latter is right at the end. But there are some similarities, which is why I have combined these wars in this discourse.
The reasons for the big wars to come are all related to Israel. In the war of Gog and Magog it is because the invading nations come to take plunder. This is primarily agricultural plunder, livestock and gold and silver, which relates to things of value.
But the primary reason is because God puts “hooks in the jaws” of Russia and draws them in! (Ezekiel 38:4)
By the way, many teachers are claiming that the nations allied with Israel, do nothing but sit on the sidelines and protest. (Ezekiel 38:13) But the protest “Have you come to take plunder,” can just as easily be a cause for their military involvement! In fact this is implied in the remaining verses.
The following verses speak of these prophesied, wars as taking place very suddenly.
Isaiah 29:5 “The multitude of your foes shall be like fine dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passes away, yes it shall be in an instant, suddenly.”
Jeremiah 6:26 O daughter of My people, clothe yourselves in sackcloth and roll about in ashes! Make mourning as for an only son, and most bitter lamentation, for the plunderer will suddenly come upon us.”
Revelation 18:8 “Her plagues will come in one day – death and mourning and famine, and she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.”
►The following verses imply nuclear warfare. If not, they relate to massive destruction:
Zechariah 14:12 “The people who fought against Jerusalem will be struck. Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, and their eyes and their tongues.”
Zechariah 5:1-11 The entire discourse relates to possible nuclear war. (More in Edition 206. HERE)
Isaiah 13:13 “I will shake the heavens and the earth will move out of its place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts in His fierce anger.”
Isaiah 66:15-16 “The Lord will come with fire and with His chariots like a whirlwind, to render His anger with fury and His rebuke with flames of fire...The slain of the Lord shall be many.”
Ezekiel 39:9, 12 “Those who dwell in the cities of Israel shall go out and set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and arrows, the javelins and spears, and they will make fires with them for seven years...For seven months the house of Israel will be burying them, in order to cleanse the land.”
Micah 1:4 “The mountains will melt under Him, and the valleys will split like wax before the fire...”
Joel 2:29-30 “...I will pour out My Spirit in those days, and I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, fire, and pillars (column) of smoke.”
The original word for “pillar / column” is: Strong’s H8490, “Tiymarah”. Meanings: Column, pillar with smoke at the top like a palm tree. (More in Edition 206. HERE)
Ezekiel 38:9 “You will ascend coming like a storm, covering the land like a cloud, you and all your troops and many peoples with you.”
Ezekiel 38:16 The war of Gog and Magog sees the enemy nations, “a mighty army coming against Israel like a cloud to cover the land.”
These two verses above are a clear reference to air-power.
Joel 2:20 “I will no longer make you (Israel) a reproach among the nations. I will remove far from you the northern army (Russia) and will drive him away into a barren and desolate land, with his face towards the eastern sea and his back towards the western sea. His stench will come up, and his foul odour shall rise, because he has done monstrous things.”
The duration and end outcome of the war:
The antichrist is not seen in WW111 (Gog & Magog) while he is at Armageddon. Yeshua is not seen at WW111, while He is at Armageddon, standing on the Mount of Olives.
►Ezekiel 38:8 Maintains that this war takes place when Israel is “dwelling safely”.
This original word is “betach” and can mean a feeling or sense of safety. Today those returning to Israel do so because they feel safe.
►Ezekiel 38:11 maintains that the war occurs when Israel is a “land of un-walled villages, without bars and gates.”
This term is comparative. In Ezekiel’s days, almost every city and village had a large wall around it with secure big heavy gates that were closed at night. This has not been the case for modern Israel at all. The verse in no way refers to the barriers to keep Palestinian militants out.
Ezekiel 39:9 speaks of a period of seven years for the burning of the weapons used in this war. That implies nuclear weapons, but it also gives us a substantial clue to the duration of the war. The war would obviously have ended at the time the seven year cleaning up begins. That means the duration of the war was extremely short.
The war occurs when Israel has been regathered in the later times / end-days. The results of the war see the spiritual awakening of Israel. (Ezekiel 39:29) So we know that it is in our day and has not happened yet.
We see the same outcome here with the Psalm 83 war, which is why I maintain that it has not occurred yet. It may well be part of the Ezekiel 38 &39 war. Note the outcome in the verse below:
Psalm 83:18 (End of war) “Men will then know that You, whose name alone is Lord, are the Most High over all the earth.”
Ezekiel 38:23 “I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the Lord.” (Ezekiel 39:7, 21)
We know that the tribulation period will be filled with war. We know that the end outcome of the tribulation will be the ultimate victory of our Lord and His “battle axe” – Israel. We know that the end outcome of the tribulation will be the Millennium of peace.
The Bible makes it clear that huge numbers of Jews and Gentiles will be saved in the tribulation. We know that the salvation of the Jews goes into overdrive right through the tribulation period.
The greatest end results of all these wars will be the sudden eye-opening, veil-removing and salvation of the Jews, so that they can become God’s great evangelists throughout the rest of the tribulation period.
The wars happen suddenly. The eye opening to Messiah happens suddenly! What incredible drama!
Isaiah 66:8 “Who has heard of such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? As soon as Zion travailed (tribulation) she gave birth to her children...Rejoice with Jerusalem...”
(Let me say again, that this verse above is not the church being born-again as the blind Revelation 12-sign teachers, and other proponents of cursed replacement theology teach. It speaks of Israel!)
Zechariah 3:9 “...I will remove the iniquity of that land (Israel) in one day.”
The ultimate victorious outcome of all future prophesied wars is right here:
Deuteronomy 33:29 “Happy are you O Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by the Lord, the shield of your help and the sword of your majesty! Your enemies shall submit to you, and you shall tread down the high places.”
Only a dispensational, Zionist Judeo Christian biblical worldview works, with all the pieces of the puzzle fitting together perfectly.
In this edition I have presented to you the very likely order of very soon-coming events, with numerous verses to back up each major point. There may be some variety in the order, but it won;t be much.
In all of this you can and must live in peace. Ultimate, everlasting peace is the final outcome of all the drama. But you can walk it now to an extent. Die to self, the world and the demonic and you are free and at peace!
This is one of my early elephant paintings combined with one of my eagle photographs.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
