This website is distinctly Messianic, comprising the Abrahamic expression of faith, which is to the Jew and the Gentile with a Hebraic character. We affirm the fullness of absolute truth contained in the Bible, embracing the cross and identifying with the convocations of the Lord as seen in the Feasts, the Sabbath and Passover. We reject the legalism of many in the Messianic movement. We reject the Babylonian Pagan traditions of the church. We consider all people Jews and Gentiles and those in all churches who are truly born of the Spirit of the living God to be one family. We reject institutional organised denominationalism (division). We foresee a great falling away of much of the church in these days, while at the same time a great restoration of part of the church. We affirm and identify with God's plan and call to the Jewish people in these days and will support and stand with them as future brothers and sisters. We stand happily with pre / mid/ and post tribbers. Our slant is cautiously pre-trib, but hey, post tribber...you're still family! Today much error has been added to Christendom and much truth has been removed. The Prophetic Scroll's aim is to deal with these issues and assist you on your road to glory.
I was saved in 1976 and became extremely interested in Bible prophecy, being an ex war-correspondent and photographer. My calling and aim is to share the dramatic and all-important issues of prophecy relating to our day. This is a calling to unfold and share the wisdom of God as contained in His word. There is also much teaching in these pages for your heart. It’s not all prophecy! Please study these things further yourself and understand that the format is non-exhaustive. Please search the scriptures to “see if these be true.” This is a "watchman" and Bible prophecy teaching website.

●Russia warns Israel after air-strike in Damascus. (It seems Russia is the Middle East big-daddy)
●Israeli Air Force strikes Syria for the third in as many days. (The situation is escalating fast)
●Russia condemns Israel for retaliation over Hezbollah-desired land grab in Golan as tensions rise.
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah and to identify the rift, and the needed restoration. There is much in the church that needs to change before it can be fully reconciled with the Jew. Likewise, changes in Jewish thinking are also needed.
Edition 15 November 1st 2009
In this edition:
●The coming New World Order
●The church and the New World Order
New World Order overview
This is a huge extensive subject. The following is a brief summary of some of the major points.
The Bible speaks of a ten nation confederacy controlling the world at the time of the tribulation period. The first three and a half years begins with a deceptive political world peace. Then all hell breaks loose. The major scriptures dealing with it are in The Revelation and Daniel. This ten nation world power will be the revived, revised Roman Empire, so its presumed that it will be the EU. This may be true, but a more likely scenario is that it will be headed by the EU from Brussels, but will incorporate, control and dominate the whole world.
There is a proposal on the table within the European Union for a ten nation central controlling ring or core of the biggest nations within Europe, with other member nations in the outer core.
Either way, very shortly we will see a new world order made up primarily of ten regions.
The fast approaching new world order or world government will become the satanic counterfeit of the coming age of peace called the millennium. It will only last for seven years though and will then be destroyed by our wonderful Messiah at the second coming. It will fail miserably to give it's promised peace!
God has declared prophetically in His word that the current age will come to a climactic end centred around Israel and the Jewish people. It will happen His way. In fact as prophecy unfolds like a giant jig-saw puzzle most of the pieces have already fallen into place. Only the blind, ignorant and deceived can't see it!
The world rejects Gods order and is attempting to bring about its own new world. To do this successfully it has to get rid of Israel. Can you see it? All of the prophetic word relating to Israel stands in the way of a global new order
The nature of the new world government:
Ephesians 2:2 speaks of the "course of the this world, which is according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience" The world order is on course, but it's leader is Satan himself
In a nutshell, the new world government (order) will be an attempt to produce a world of peace. It will be like rebuilding Babylon.
The Revelation speaks in numerous places of 'Babylon the great'. This is a double reference originating in the character of Babylon which is now re-emerging in the new world order. It's good to keep in mind the end of Babylon. Revelation 14: 8 "Babylon is fallen is fallen"
God's word isn't prescriptive in terms of exactly what sort of government a nation should have. But there are many principles throughout the scriptures relating to a nation under God. When a nation, or in this case the world forsakes the knowledge of God it is wide open for destruction.
The Bible is primarily written for believers, but it also has much to say to the unsaved and world at large.
Hosea 4:1-3 "Because there is no knowledge of God in the land, the land will mourn" The rest of this portion of scripture goes on to describe various forms of destruction that follow.
The people of the world came into unity and tried to build a world order of peace in Babylon. They tried to reach up to God. The people had all sorts of evil religions mixed with the true. Genesis 11 says that because of the unity of the people in purpose, that "nothing they proposed to do would be withheld from them" Yes there is power in unity, but an ungodly mix with other religions got them all destroyed by God.
The kingdoms of man are based on pride and what man can do independent of God. Job 41: 34 "He (Satan) is king over all the children of pride"
This new world government will come about through intensive deception on a mammoth scale, sucking a great part of the church into itself as well. It will come about on the wings of promised peace for the world. It kicks off with the signing of a deceptive peace treaty.
Satan will come onto the stage offering world peace! It will be a humanistic peace. Daniel 11:21 "...he will come in peaceably and seize the kingdom by intrigue"
Numerous verses of scripture in the Revelation speak of the kings of the kingdoms of the world, (world leaders) giving their nations over into the control of the antichrist.
The new world order will operate in three areas: The socio-political headed by the antichrist; the religious headed by the false prophet and a computerised system of control.
Revelation speaks of the fact that commerce will be greatly restricted and controlled in the new world order. Revelation 13:17 says that "no one will buy or sell unless they have the mark of the beast on their foreheads or arms". This speaks of control. Any who do receive this mark will go to hell.
The "mark" will most probably be a powerful very small chip implanted just under the skin. These micro chips are already around today.
It will be all about control. Control of the world economy, population control, control of the worlds resources and commodities and ultimately control of the mind and spirit.
The Assyrian king in Isaiah 10 is a double reference to Satan himself. The context of this portion of scripture places it right at the close of the age, after Israel has been re-gathered.
Isaiah 10:12-14 "By the strength of my hand I have done it...I have removed the boundaries of the people and robbed their treasuries...my hand has found like a nest the riches of the people...I have gathered all the earth and there was no one who moved his wing nor opened his mouth with even a peep"
Character of control:
A key way to identify the Satanic at work is in the way he works. He wants control and to get this he works through manipulation, intimidation, domination. Manipulation is the first stage and is quite light. If control is not achieved then comes intimidation which is heavier. If that doesn't work then comes the big heavy, domination. God works the opposite way. He wants us to do His will but He never uses these ways, He waits for voluntary submission. Forced submission and control is the devils way. Manipulation, intimidation and domination will be key factors in the formation of the new world order.
World domination is nothing new. Many have tried and all have failed. The Babylonians tried. The Roman emperor Nero tried. Islam has tried and will try again. The Nazis tried and communism tried. They all used force or control to achieve their goal, but they all failed.
The coming new world order will get very close to success, but will fail in the end. Control will be achieved not by men with guns in uniform, but by men in black suits . Intelligent well dressed globalists coming in the name of world peace are the most dangerous people today.
1 Thessalonians 5: 3 "When they say peace and safety then sudden destruction comes upon them"
The construction of the new world government:
It will be centred on trade, commerce and the financial world. The stock markets of the world have been shaken hard in recent times as recession plunged most nations into a survival struggle. Right now we are emerging from this financial crisis, but it will return again soon.
When the things that you put your trust in are shaken, you tend to look for things to hold you up. This is exactly what has been happening. Some big nations like China and Russia have been calling for a new world currency. They want to break away from dependence on the US dollar. The call for a new world currency has been growing.
The US dollar is on a one way ticket to hell. It has been losing value against all currencies since 2001 It's slide has been speeding up lately. The problem is that many countries who have large investments in dollar denominated things are now seeing their investments go up in smoke. A break from the dollar as a world currency would stop this.
Interestingly the call for a new global currency is just starting to gather momentum now as the formation of a political new world order gathers momentum at just the same time.
The Telegraph of London reported on September 7th 2009: "The UN wants a new global currency to replace the dollar" The UN Conference on Trade and Development outlined this in a new 218 page report.
Any further deterioration in the dollar will speed up this call for a new currency.
A new book by Michael Carlberg titled International Economic Policy Coordination, deals with the creation of ten monetary regions for the world. The EU has a similar map of the world divided into ten economic regions on their website. The regions are the same as the one below.
A world currency and other aspects of the new world order are actually really needed. It's a brilliant plan and would solve many global problems. BUT it's not God's plan and just like Babylon will be destroyed.
The new world order in the news:
●Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd appealed to world leaders, specifically to US President Obama, to act now and form a dynamic and effective driving centre to create a new world order." - The Australian September 24, 2009
●The article below was published a few weeks ago and refers to Gordon Brown's new call for a new world order.
● Iran's Ahmadinejad calls for a new world order as the US dollar retreats.
●Sarkozy, Merkel call for a new world order, "There is no other possibility or alternative"
● World Bank President Robert Zoellick openly admitted that it's "time to eliminate national sovereignty and impose a global government." - speech to the G20
● China and Brazil join Russia in call for a global currency.
● Henry Kissinger: "Obama primed to create new world order."
● Pope Benedict calls for a new world order and a radical new approach to the global economy.
● Many other world leaders in the political and economic spheres have been saying similar things of late.
● Obama and Oprah are deceived leaders of the coming new world order.
● Some organisations that have been involved in the early planning of the new world order include: The Council of Foreign Relations, The Trilateral Commission, The Bilderberg Group, The Club of Rome, The Aspen Institute, The World Bank, The United Nations and the International Monetary Fund.
The world is being primed for the coming new world order. Isn't it interesting that the Bible prophesied these things 2000 years ago! What is amazing is that many of these things are all dove-tailing together now at an ever intensifying rate!
The role of the church in the new world order:
The false church:
Let me begin with a shocking statement. Much of the church will have a major role in the new world order. It will participate fully in collaboration with other religions. It will work with Satan, thinking he is God for the creation of this counterfeit, worldly organisation.
The antichrist will have working with him a deadly sidekick called the false prophet. This individual will be the head of a counterfeit religion. It could be a new form of the world council of churches, but one thing is for sure he will be closely associated with the church.
1 John 2: 18 speaks of the "antichrist going out from us but is not of us". In other words he is associated with the church in some way
Today, many believers are in a deadly trap. They have never been taught how to be separate from the world. In fact today most don't even know what the world is or how to identify it.
Jeremiah 7:11 ...From the prophet to the priest...they have healed the hurt of My people slightly, saying peace, peace when there is no peace"
2Theselonians 2: 9,10 The coming of the lawless one (antichrist) is according to the working of Satan with all power, signs and lying wonders...with deception among those who are perish because they did not receive the love of the truth that they may be saved. For this reason God will send them strong delusion that they should believe the lie."
How to stay safe and know that you are in the true church:
Amos 8:11 "Behold the days are coming says the Lord, that I will send a famine on the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord"
The above verse is staggering and profound. How true it is! Today we are in dangerous days. Today you hear one minister after another saying "don't worry about doctrine" This is the most dangerous statement any leader can make. Now of course I know "the letter kills while the Spirit gives life" But let me tell you that the Spirit gives life to doctrine as well! We need both.
2Timothy 4:3 says that the "time will come when they won't endure sound doctrine, but according the desires of self, with itching ears they will heap up for themselves teachers of the untrue.
The only way to stay safe in the face of the coming new world order is to keep a soft and broken heart before Our Lord and to know doctrine backwards! If you don't you are in great danger!
I absolutely love the verse of scripture in Job 23:12 "I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food" Necessary food is what you need to stay alive!
We are in dangerous times alright. There is immense pressure on every front to compromise with the world. I know many believers who are in love with the world and its ways.
Here are just a few verses I have merged together: Satan is the god of this world. We are in the world but not of it. Love not the world nor the things of the world. Come out and be separate. Hate your life in the world. If you find your life in the world you will lose it, but if you lose your life in the world for My sake you will find it.
It is the work of and application of the cross that delivers us from the world the flesh and the demonic and keeps us safe.
While much of the church gets swept away into believing it can save the world and bring about a new world order of peace, many believers will not follow the god of this world. They know that peace is coming under the headship of THE Prince of Peace. He will return to Jerusalem, not Brussels! He will answer the prayer of believers praying for the "peace of Jerusalem" but only after He has destroyed the world order, as it tries to bring Israel into its fold.
The tragedy of the soon coming antichrist-led new world order is that it will be joined by much of the church. A large part of the church will fall hook line and sinker for promised peace of the devil and will work side by side with him to bring about this doomed short-lived new world order.
One of the key ways to stay safe in the face of all of this is to identify and be removed from all forms of the satanically inspired replacement theology, prevalent in much of the church today.(See edition 7 for more) Replacement theology will become a rising 'fence' and will separate the true from the doomed.
Our wonderful Messiah will set up the true new world order which will last for a thousand years, before the creation of the eternity of eternities.
Isaiah 34:1,2 Come near you nations and hear...let the earth hear and all that it is in it, for the indignation of the Lord is against all nations and His fury against all armies, He has utterly destroyed them and given them over to slaughter"
The new world order will come together in a powerful unity against Israel, but this is where they will meet the fury and anger of our Lord.
Imagine being so stupid and ignorant to think that you can come against God!
Proverbs 1 : 23-30 "I will make My words known to you. Because I have spoken and you have refused...I will also laugh at your calamity, I will mock when your terror comes like a storm...Then they will call on Me but I will not answer...because they hated knowledge and didn't choose the fear of the Lord, they would have none of My counsel"
My friends, the way to stay safe is to have a broken and contrite heart before our Lord and to love, study and receive the fullness of His Word.
But don't believe or study the Word with sectarian glasses on.
When will this all happen:
It is already happening fast! The whole world stage is being set now on the financial, political and religious fronts. My personal belief (with many reasons) is that these things will kick off in 2011. Please read Edition 9 for more on this.
The above image is a composite of the Brussels headquarters of the EU and the interior. Note that the building is designed in the shape of the broken cross or peace sign. This is an ancient Babylonian occult symbol! It was also known as "the cross of Nero" This Roman emperor used it believing that he could bring about world peace. To do this he firstly had to get rid of believers (many were Jews in that day), so he embarked on a mass killing spree of believers. It was also used extensively on the tomb stones of Hitler's troops. By the way, the Nazi swastika was also a Babylonian occult symbol. Hitler's goal was also to create a new world order of peace and he believed that he had to kill all the Jews first. How interesting is all of this?
There are more parallels between Babylon and the new world order than I could begin to list.
There are also very many parallels between religious Babylon and many modern religions including large sections of the church today.
In the midst of this our Messiah is building and preparing a glorious church, true, holy and separate from the spirit of the world and its fast coming hell- bound new world order.
I encourage you to read edition 12 titled "The glory which shall be revealed".
In closing here is a wonderful painting by Marc Chagall of the prophet Jeremiah clinging to the Scroll of God. The way to know God, be known By God and stay safe in this evil age is to "cling" to the Word of God. We need to keep it and the Spirit of God alive and active in our hearts.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace and glory!
