- Covid 19 virus is still spreading worldwide. Watch for this to level off. Watch for the infection rate to begin to decline. It will happen and soon. Watch for many leaders to turn to God. Some are!
- China is to lift lockdown on April 8th as 1.5 billion worldwide go into lockdown.
- This pandemic is going to take a large chunk out of world economic growth and set back nations and people already struggling.
- Interestingly the word “Corona” means “crown” it is also a fiery ring surrounding the sun visible at an eclipse. Does it symbolise a crown of fiery judgement?

Watchmen who spy with their little eye:
A major goal of The Prophetic Scroll (TPS) is to be ahead of the curve. It is to have eyes looking into the future. It is to hear the word of the Lord and to inform and warn of things to come.
Here at TPS you will find teaching and encouragement for your heart and your head. You will be kept safely in the arms of our Lord, through the work of the Spirit of God.
The spread and growth of the coronavirus is often represented as a curve in a graph, with the largest numbers at the peak of the curve.
I have some good news for you:
The coronavirus has run its course and is over! You might think I’m mad! Well, there are two issues here. Firstly, that is the sense I get from the word of the Lord. Secondly that is what the graphs and charts are saying.
Of course it’s not over in reality yet, but the curve in most places has peaked. You may surprised to know that China’s Wuhan Province where the virus started and killed many is already back to normal with all services, factories transport and industries back to normal operation. (Look it up) Other nations are seeing a flattening of the curve after the peak. A few are still seeing an increase.
We are to look out into the future and not right at our noses. Yes I do believe there is going to be a lot of difficulty ahead, but the human spirit has strong bounce-back ability.
Stock markets are always anticipatory of future economic fundamentals. They price in the future now. We have seen world markets crash and then crash again. But in the last week or so they have registered repeated record runs higher, including the largest ever one day point gain in history on the Dow.
Markets create many signals including the reliable “key reversal signal” which is a capitulation to the downside and a “V” shaped spike higher forming a number of higher highs on the charts. This is just what we have now.
Can the markets still go down? Yes they can take another hit, but the main, furious downside is over.
All the pessimists including Christian pessimists can only see the reality of sick, dying and dead people everywhere! They can’t see the light in the tunnel because they are the dark tunnel.
The mass media have created a no-man’s land riddled with mine-fields saying, ‘don’t resist our opinions’. They have created a fortified ‘city’ full of so-called giants of their own opinions.
Let’s put this into spiritual terms with our two good friends of antiquity – Joshua and Caleb.
Joshua and Caleb:
These were two of the twelve spies sent by Moses to spy out the Promised Land of Israel.
This story relates prophetically to Israel’s future salvation, and also applies to God’s promises for the Christian.
We should all know the story. All the spies saw the same thing which was a land flowing with milk and honey, but with big giants and fortified towns. Ten came back and accurately reported what they saw and thought. They said that it was impossible to defeat these giants and the fortifications.
Joshua and Caleb saw the same things but in faith, looked beyond and came back with an outrageous, radical, good report in light of all the bad things. It defied eyes, ears and logic!
We have exactly the same picture with David and Goliath, which speaks very much of Israel’s fight for survival today.
Joshua and Caleb refused to see themselves as submitted grasshoppers controlled by evil.
The ones who went into the Promised Land had wholeheartedly followed God.
The ten evil spies had significant influence. They held the majority consensus, because they thought they could see with their eyes. The Bible says that the caused the entire congregation to murmur. (Numbers 14:17-38)
The ten with the evil report led the entire camp of the children of Israel to banishment by God in the wilderness, where they all died of the plague. Joshua and Caleb were the ones to lead the new flock into the land.
The ten spies are represented in the mass-media. They see with eyes that cannot see.
Tragically, much of the church today not only carries the virus of the ten evil spies relating to Israel, they actually facilitate it with their anti-Semitism and replacement theology.
You must have spiritual eyes to hear God’s trumpet warnings, or the holy, golden, shining sword is coming your way fast. (Deuteronomy 32:41, Ezekiel 21:9)
I believe that’s not politically correct today to say a sword is coming! – Voetsak!
Two pretty neat watchmen!
The twelve spies were sent to spy out the land. Only two of the ten were God's watchmen.
●The word “spy” is Strong’s H8446 meaning to seek, search and explore.
●The word “watchman” is Strong’s H6822 meaning to keep watch, or to spy out and observe. Note that the meanings are almost identical.
Today we have many self-proclaimed watchmen. They are part of the ten evil spy network! They spy out what they see. They report on what they see and speculate with variables. They are repeatedly wrong. (I heard of one who recently claimed that the rapture would take place on Purim, because that’s when Jews get drunk in the streets! – What garbage!)
Some people are so thickly deceived that even if you show them the truth, they will still believe a lie. That is because deception is primarily an evil spirit, which becomes imbedded if not cut out.
So, if the Covid 19 story is on the way out, have we learned the lesson? Many have. Many are talking of national repentance. Many joined for urgent prayer and still are. But many have not. These are those who never will. They are the doomed ones. Please don’t be one!
How many large biblical abominations present in the nations, that led to their national curses will go? Very few will!
What is important and coming soon is the next round of catastrophic judgment on this world. This is because of the overall place we are in prophecy. It will speed up.
The truly blind media and their blind sheep have denied God and His word. They have by extension denied mankind the ability to see sin, wickedness and abomination.
►Here is a most powerful lesson for you in these days:
Deuteronomy 8:2 “The Lord your God led you all these forty years in the wilderness to humble you and test you, to know what was in your heart. Verse 16: He might humble you and test you to do you good in the end.”
Psalm 106:14-15 “They soon forgot His works, they did not wait for His counsel, but lusted exceedingly in the wilderness and tested God in the desert, so He gave them their requests, but sent leanness into their soul.”
Some of these end-time things are great surgical tools for your heart!
Psalm 71:20-21 “You have shown me great and severe troubles, You shall revive me again, and bring me up again from the depths of the earth. You shall increase my greatness and comfort me on every side.”
2 Kings 6:16 “Do not fear, for those that are with us are more than with them.” The Lord opened their eyes to see mountains full of chariots of fire all around Elisha!
Welcome to TPS – your very own Joshua and Caleb for today’s exciting and unique times!
Edition 6. 28th June 2009
By Joel Joseph
May you be blessed of our Lord, Saviour, Father and Great God and be inspired in some way to move forward into the glorious things He has prepared for you.
In this edition:
●The world declares..."stop the settlements".
●Syria threatens to take back the Golan by force.
●Tony Blair, the Middle East envoy says peace comes by capitulation.
● The worlds kings and our soon coming King who is alive and very well!
●Will the world end soon? yes it will, no it won't! Define your terms correctly.
Isaiah 62:1 "For Zion's sake I will not shut up and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until her Righteousness goes forth as brightness and her salvation burns as a lamp. The gentiles shall see your righteousness"
|These are headlines and news snippets that have some prophetic significance, which I discuss briefly in the "commentary" section below. Very little of this will be found in the mass media.|
●Massive, sudden pressure on Israel to capitulate to the Palestinians. G8 nations, plus nations of USA, Russia and EU collectively demand Israel freeze all settlements and tear down those built since 2001! (AP, Jerusalem Post June26.)
●Syrian officials now threatened to take back the Golan Height by force, if agreement not reached with Israel. Syria calls the Golan "Syrian land" (Haaretz.com June26th)
●Syria: Obama acts to restore relations. The first stage is to send an ambassador to Damascus. (CNN June 25)
●The world worships their dead king of pop.
Syria is playing with fire! Isaiah 17 declares in a prophecy yet to be fulfilled that Damascus, the capital of Syria will "cease from being a city and will lie a ruinous heap..." This nation has a prophetic destiny soon to hit the headlines. Damascus is not a good place to buy property!
Syrian leader Assad has just rejected attempts to resume peace talks with Israel. The Syrian leader has said that they will take back the Golan Heights by force from Israel, now that peace talks are no more.
Syria has been off the radar screen of late, but is now awaking to a shattering, future. Damascus has never been destroyed before. The context of this prophecy relates to end time events. I'm not saying that this is it, but it's not far off. Syria is already part of the Arab alliance, now ring fencing Israel with greater audacity. the Bible declares that it's days are numbered. Keep an eye on this dark horse in the near future!
Syria is part of the ancient land of Persia, which was present day Iran, Syria and a few other smaller parts of neighbouring nations. Persia is described in various Biblical prophecies relating to an attack on Israel in the latter days. The giant war of Ezekiel 38 and 39 is one of them. After incredible destruction and with God's help Israel emerges victorious, but heavily damaged.
This is most probably the time period in which God lifts the veil of spiritual blindness on the Jews at large. This is already starting to happen now.
Isn't it interesting that now is the time Obama decides to normalise relations with Syria and set up diplomatic ties, by first of all deploying an ambassador to Damascus!
What to me is so interesting is that world alignments are shifting and falling into place like a giant jigsaw puzzle, painting a clear picture, already outlined in Bible prophecy, written thousands of years ago! Amazing indeed, oh and did I mention exciting as well!
G8 quartet in new settlement freeze demand:
Never in the history of the world has a nation built another nation within its borders, and from the destruction of the Temple 2000 years ago, no nation has ever claimed Israel or part of it as its own. The notion that Israel belongs to the Palestinians is a giant disastrous mistake based on deception, lies and ignorance.
The fresh demands from the major nations of the world that Israel cease building so-called settlements (even natural growth) and evict those in so-called settlements since 2001 is a travesty of international law and justice, but much worse than that is that it places the world on an ever-increasing slippery slope to the fury and judgement of God.
This G8 meeting was held in Rome, and will be followed up with another one in which the Arab-League nations will join in. Israel has not been invited although the purpose is to discuss Israel's settlements!!
No worldly leader has the right or authority to declare and determine the boundaries of Jerusalem or Israel. This flies in the face of God's eternal covenants, but it also confirms that Bible prophecy is unfolding fast before our eyes.
The incredible thing about all of this is that precious-few churches are even aware of the situation. Most that are aware are in fact supporting the forces of darkness...what a tragedy! The amazing thing is while most churches continue in blindness and deception, preaching self- promotion and self-motivational rubbish, the Glory of God is working in the hearts of those who are open to Him. They see and understand clearly the urgency of the time.
The problem is that the world-view of most churches is one of growing prosperity, happiness, and success in and of the world. With this being the case obviously the unfolding of prophecy upsets their apple-carts! It throws a huge spanner in the works of a world of peace and happiness.
Tony Blair has just declared..."Peace in the Middle East is now within reach, if Israel compromises"! Oh yes, Tony, do you think God is going to compromise on His covenants and plans, just for you? Listen, Tony, even if you do get Israel to surrender to the devil, you have no chance of even getting to chat with God on the issue. You Tony, together with your other bunch of merry men don't even know that you are messing with the "apple of God's eye" You are on the wrong side of His choice and as a result have a terrible destiny ahead of you.
The problem is that you, Tony and your merry bunch of marauding butchers will either lead or force Israel to slaughter. Eventually, the world at large and most of the church will betray Israel and only God and His servants with a heart for His plans will stand with Israel as they face a second Holocaust.
Tony, let me appeal to you...if you want to be the world's Middle East envoy, you should try finding out at least the basics of Gods plans for the close of age. After all He has the keys for your eternal destiny as well.
Israel beware, Tony Blair is your enemy, a dangerous enemy who comes in the name of peace.
In relation to the current time period, Isaiah 59:14 "Truth has fallen in the street"
Here are some of Israel's new modern enemies: Obama, Clinton, Sarkozi, Merkel, Carter. They are playing with fire!!
Joel 3:2,4 "I will enter into judgement with all nations on account of My people and My heritage Israel whom they have scattered among the nations, they have also divided up My land...Will you retaliate against Me, swiftly and speedily I will return your retaliation upon your own heads. Vs 9 "Prepare for war...beat your ploughshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears. Assemble and gather all you nations...multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision for the Day of the Lord is near"
Zechariah 12:3 "...All the nations of the world are gathered against Jerusalem"
Zechariah3:2 "The Lord said to Satan, The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you"
Zechariah 8:2,3 "I am zealous for Zion with great zeal (lit. fury), with great fury I am zealous for her. I will return to Zion and dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. Jerusalem shall be called the City of Truth"
The kings of the world:
The King is alive and coming soon. Oh yes He is! The world system has it's kings too. King Elvis died broke in a drugged out state of drunkenness. The actual cause of his death was drowning in his vomit. Now comes the death of the king of pop. He died broke, in debt and with a squandered, wrecked life lived for self. We don't know all the details yet, but early reports say that he had three drug injections a day, plus a whole lot of daily drugs, and drink, which most probably killed him.
These are the world's kings and the world worships them as gods!
Thank God for our eternal, soon coming King of Kings and Lord of Lords! He died too, an innocent man, who gave His life for the salvation of whosoever would believe in Him. Our King rose from the dead to Glory, while the world's kings live forever in hell!
Speaking of the Great White Throne Judgement, which is the final judgement of all the unsaved, The book of Revelation says, Rev 20:11, 15: "I saw the dead both great and small standing before God... and anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire".
Worldly greatness saves nobody. If it could, the cross of Calvary would have been meaningless!
The world will end soon / will never end!
No, I'm not confused. I thought that this presented a good opportunity to briefly discuss this somewhat controversial subject. Some people quote verses of scripture implying that the world will never end, while others, like myself say it will end very soon.
Both are right to a degree. We need to look at the original words used in the scriptures to get clarity.
The Greek word in the Bible for world is the word 'kosmos' while the Greek word for earth is the word 'ge'. Simply, 'ge' is derived from soil and applies to the physical earth, the mountains, rivers, sea etc. The word 'kosmos' means the adorning of the earth with its socio-political world. It refers to the man-made aspects of life upon the earth. It has it's kings and it's god. Satan is called the god of the world and the world-power.
Our Lord will renovate the world at His soon coming and prepare it for the millennial age.
So, the world (more correctly, the earth) will never end, while the world that now is, will come to a bitter end soon. It's all about defining your terms!
Satan is called the world-power or 'kosmokratos' in Greek. 'Kosmos' is the word for world, while 'kratos' is the word for power.
There is another amazing descriptive word from the Greek. It is the word "Hupokrites." Yes the word hypocrite is derived from it, but it's origin is very interesting. Hupokrite is a theatrical word. In ancient Greek theatre the hupokrite would come onto the stage to introduce the next act. If a comedy, he would wear the smiley mask. If the next act was a tragedy he would wear the frown mask. We still have these two masks today representing theatre.
The point is that the word hupokrite means the one behind the mask is not the same as the mask he portrays.
Now isn't that very interesting indeed. Satan comes as an angel of light, with many masks. both good and bad but he is the deceiver behind the world. The world-power (kosmokratos) is none other than the great two-faced deceiver. (hupokrite)
If you look back at previous editions you will see that so many of the pieces of the prophetic jigsaw puzzle are falling into place before our eyes. This edition simply makes the picture a little clearer. Of course, I am presuming that you have at least a basic understanding of prophecy in the first place. If you are new to our Lord's Kingdom, I encourage you to study God's Word with urgency.
If you are a long-standing believer who has neglected these things, I encourage you to repent and get your priorities sorted out and study God's Word now.
Job says "I consider Your Word more than my necessary food."
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and hang in there!
