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 539: September 15th 2020.
Goodbye and good riddance! Goodbye world, hullo Lord – next year!
The world stage is set for the greatest drama of all time!
For many of the Christian remnant, we said “goodbye cruel world” a long time ago! As part of the ingredients of the salvation of our soul, we have died to the world, the flesh / sin nature and the demonic influences and activities in the world - all through the cross.
Now many are suddenly jumping on the Christian dead-wagon to be carted off to the local dump. Dying to self and the world releases us from its grip and brings peace.
As a Christian we die and are born again (spirit). We die to self as an ongoing experience (soul). We will soon “die” as these mortal bodies are changed into immortal bodies in a flash. (body)
If you thought by “goodbye world” I meant now at the Feast of Trumpets in a week, you are wrong!
I did say weeks ago, that we will see if it is this year’s feast, as the time approaches.
I can safely say now, that it will not be this year but next.
►Don’t miss next week’s edition. I have some remarkable things to share!
These are tempestuous, violent times. As we approach the rapture of the true church the world approaches the tribulation period. As the Lord’s wrath approaches (Revelation 16:1), the wrath of Satan approaches (Revelation 12:12), the wrath of man intensifies and the wrath of nature waits in the wings.
These are crushing times! Did you know that the meaning of the Hebrew letters of their new year 5781, coming next week is: To be “pressed” or “crushed.”
The Feast of Trumpets:
►Firstly, there will be no blowing of the shofar / trumpets at this feast of trumpets next week. This is because shofar / trumpet blowing is forbidden when the feast falls on a Sabbath. (Look it up).
This Friday 18th at sunset, the feast begins and lasts to Sunday 20th. It’s been very encouraged to see so many wake-up to the fact that the Feast of Trumpets will herald the rapture and tribulation start. I have stood almost alone in this view since the 1980’s, except for a few of us die-hards.
The rapture / tribulation will begin on a Feast of Trumpets, but I need to share why I believe it is not this one, but the next one – Monday 6th September to the 8th 2021.
The two main requirements for the tribulation to begin are the revealing of the antichrist by and through the signing of a peace deal, revealed in Daniel 9:27, Daniel 8:25 and others.
The main biblical ingredients of the peace deal will be: ●Signing by the person to be revealed as the antichrist. ●The breaking of God’s eternal covenant with Israel. ●It must be a seven year covenant. ●The handing over of much of Jerusalem to the Palestinians. ●A temple to be built on the Temple Mount. ●A peace treaty with Israel and Arab neighbours. ●It will involve dividing the land of Israel.
Once again let me say that the US Deal of the Century does not fulfil any of these requirements and is in fact no deal at all, because it was not ratified and never came into being.
That Deal of the Century, did not divide Israel. Israel was and is already divided. Israel was divided by the Turks, the Jordanians, and the British. That’s what Gaza and the West Bank is! There is no other peace deal or covenant that fulfils the above requirements.
So if you say, as many do, the antichrist confirms an existing covenant (wrong interpretation), what covenant is that? The correct interpretation of Daniel 9:27 is the Amplified Bible’s position:
Daniel 9:27 (Amp) “He (antichrist) shall enter into a strong and firm covenant with many for one week (of years)...”
At the time, or very shortly after the tribulation begins, the ten-nation revised Roman Empire comes into play.
At the time, or perhaps just before the tribulation begins, the big prophesied end-time wars take place.
As you see, we are close to some of these things, but none are in place and ready to roll and there is one week to go! These things can all happen quickly, but there is too much that needs to be fulfilled.
The current peace initiatives between Israel and various Arab nations are not it either.
The peace deals on the go now with the minor Arab nations of the region are of no prophetic consequence on their own. All together, they point to a shifting tide in the Middle East, which is good. But beware - the heart of Islam has not changed.
These peace initiatives with smaller Arab nations have a sting in the tail!
The sting in the tail is this: It dupes the world into thinking it can create peace. But the world’s peace is always a deception awaiting destruction.
Some are saying that these mini-peace deals are the fulfilment of “When they say peace and security, sudden destruction comes.” (1 Thessalonians 5:3)
Not so! The peace that is being referred to here is the coming Daniel 9:27 peace deal, and that is not here yet. A whole bunch of Arab nations making peace deals with Israel would most certainly be significant and a forerunner of the big one to come, but it is not the big one yet.
The “sudden destruction” is most certainly the as yet unfulfilled prophesied wars in the Middle East.
The Bible speaks of “wars and rumours of wars” as part of the “birth pangs” and “beginning of sorrows,” and “the end is not yet.” (Matthew 24:6)
We are not seeing these wars just yet.
There is little sign of required repentance, especially in the church for the big culprits of the current upheavals, which is the mass murder of the unborn, aggressive, expanding homosexuality and the like. To say ridiculous things like all these troubles in the world are because Trump divided Israel is an outrageous misdirection.
There is danger in jumping the gun. We would all like to go home next week, me included, but beware that you don’t get on the wrong train and lose hope!
If you have none of the revelatory gifts of the Spirit operating in you, especially as a teacher or watchman, you will have no spiritual revelation of your own. You will then constantly have your own self and personal experience (“private interpretation”) to go on, and you will always be borrowing second hand revelation from others. You will be known by that!
Some are calling for the rapture at almost every turn and always fail like ghost riders in the sky!
Israel’s new Promised Land:
The most amazing, and little-known type in the Bible is seen in the journey of the children of Israel from Egyptian captivity, through the Red Sea, into the wilderness and finally into the Promised Land.
The type is this:
Israel was let go from Egypt, a type of the world.
The Red Sea crossing is a type of Israel’s miraculous victory in the War of Independence and subsequent birth as a nation. That occurred in 1948 when Israel became a nation in a day, perfectly fulfilling Isaiah 66:8.
The time in the wilderness is a type of Israel now. She is independent and free, but not in her spiritual Promised Land yet.
Along the way to the Promised Land, Israel had to deal with much opposition like Jericho which obstructed her path and journey. That is a type of all Israel’s opposition today including from the church in the form of replacement theology.
Did Israel finally make it to the Promised Land? You bet she did. Will she make it to her spiritual Promised Land? You bet she will!
I’ve included the following verses without commentary. A simple reading of these verses is very powerful, and paints a most dramatic picture. Read them!
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)...”
Isaiah 60:21 “Your people (Israel) shall all be righteous; they shall inherit the land forever, the branch of My planting, the work of My hands, that I may be glorified.”
Hosea 14:4-6 “I will heal their backsliding. I will love them freely, for My anger has turned away from him. I will be like the dew to Israel...His beauty shall be like an olive tree.”
Zephaniah 3:13 “The remnant of Israel shall do no unrighteousness and speak no lies, nor shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth...”
Deuteronomy 14:2 “You (Israel) are a holy people to the Lord your God, and the Lord has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the earth.”
Numbers 23:9 “From the hills, I behold him, (Israel) a people dwelling alone, not reckoning itself among the nations.”
Jeremiah 24:7 “Then I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am the Lord; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God, for they shall return to Me with a whole heart.”
Isaiah 45:17, 25 “Israel shall be saved by the Lord with an everlasting salvation and shall not be ashamed or disgraced forever and ever...In the Lord all the descendants of Israel shall be justified and shall glory.”
Jeremiah 50:19-20 “I will bring back Israel to his habitation...In those days and at that time, says the Lord, the iniquity of Israel shall be sought, but there shall be none; and the sins of Judah, but they shall not be found; for I will pardon those whom I preserve.”
The coming US election:
Here is a likely scenario for the US: The Democratic Party has all but shot itself in the foot, handing victory to Trump. This is because the majority of people have a basic Christian worldview in them, even if not practiced actively.
One should never underestimate the importance of having a biblical worldview, which supports a nation under God. That does not mean that everyone who holds to those views is personally saved, but when the pressure is on it reveals what people are made of.
Big pressure is here with more coming, but don’t throw in the towel USA! Turn to those long held biblical principles which the liberals are trying to destroy.
USA, and nations with large Jewish populations, please bear this severe biblical principle in mind:
►There is a repeating principle revealed in the Bible: God punishes Israel for their rebellion by bringing them into captivity by the nations. But then when the job is done, God destroys the very nation that held the Jews captive.
The US and others are not holding the Jews physically captive, but they are in the sense of lifestyle and sinful behaviour, which is keeping them blinded.
The reason is simple. When in captivity, the children of Israel were influenced by the sin, paganism, and evil of the nations holding them captive.
Matthew 18:7 Woe to the world for its stumbling blocks (offences). They must come, but woe to that man through who they come.”
Ezekiel 23:30 “I will do these things to you, because you have gone as a harlot after the Gentiles, because you have become defiled by their idols.”
Deuteronomy 12:30-31 “Take heed to yourself (Israel) that you are not ensnared to follow after them (false gods) ...That you do not inquire after their gods saying we will do likewise. You shall not worship the Lord your God in that way.”
Today we see Israel captive to the western world system and being influenced by the entire world’s ungodliness. Soon the Jews will be released to enter their new spiritual Promised Land. They will be holy and clean. God will then destroy the current world system.
This has major implications for the world today. The ways of the world that have flowed into Israel have prevented them from going, holy and pure, into their new Promised Land of salvation.
Here is another amazing type revealed in the great Exodus:
►Pharaoh finally let God’s people go, but then changed his mind, pursued the children of Israel, and the Egyptian armies were killed in the Red Sea, as the Jews went on their way to the Promised Land. This is a type of the antichrist, making a peace covenant with Israel. He will then pursue them to his own detriment.
The Second Exodus is not complete yet. It will be soon, as Israel comes to salvation. Guess what is about to happen to the captors?
The world’s job in holding Israel back is just about done. Goodbye, cruel world!
This is one of the reasons why the world will not go back to normal, until it has been fully destroyed and then cleansed!
The world is about to get stoned, in a bit more than a puff of smoke. All the world’s empires are going to come crashing down suddenly as the Stone shatters their feet to pieces. (Daniel 2:34, Isaiah 60:12)
Isaiah 8:9-10 “Huddle together, O peoples, and be shattered; pay attention all you distant lands; prepare for battle and be shattered, prepare for battle and be shattered! Devise a plan, but it will be thwarted. State a proposal, but it will not happen, for God is with us.”
Zechariah 2:5 “For I, says the Lord, ‘will be a wall of fire around her (Jerusalem) and I will be the glory in her midst.’”
Tragically much of the western church has been dumbed down to the true things of God and of Bible prophecy, by their own dummies in the pulpit.
The youth of today have been dumbed down by the world and in many cases their own parents. They have been denied discipline and miss-educated, re-educated, with new age and new world thinking, devoid of God, creating a true lost generation, ready for hell.
The good news:
God makes things new! He made us new, He will make us newer. He will make Israel new. He will make the all things new. (Revelation 2:17, 3:12, 21:5)
The good news is God is just, holy and righteous and He is going to create just those characteristics forever in the entire universe, in which we will have full access.
In a constantly changing world you lose your sense of direction and stability. Only by hanging onto, and applying the age-old principles of the scriptures can this be fixed with peace and stability?
He is coming for a glorious church. Israel too will end up being glorious. He is coming soon! We will continue to watch and pray!
If there are any major, significant developments on the prophetic scene within the next week, I’ll report on them here in the “Prophetic News” section above. So stay tuned.
I will not report on or even mention, things that are of no prophetic consequence and there are many. I will also not report on the many things floating around today that are total error and a big distraction for the truth.
I took the background picture from a chopper in the Drakensbeg Mountains and a martial eagle with my motorised Hasselblad.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
