- 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.

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 176 September 25th 2013
Our greatest end-time enemies:
Please note that this news section deals only with news events, which have a Biblical or prophetic aspect to them.
►Peace Talks update:
Isaiah 59:8 “The way of peace they have not known, and there is no justice in their ways; they have made themselves crooked paths; whoever takes that path will not know peace.”
There are rumours that the peace talks have broken down for now. That’s just a rumour so no comment.
Just recently I’ve read a number of reports saying, “Here comes peace.” There is now talk that Obama may even initiate some sort of peace effort with Iran. The Bible declares: “When they say peace, peace and when they say peace and safety, then sudden destruction comes.”
It’s good to bear in mind that you can’t make peace with the devil – ever! Any peace that is made is only a strategic deception.
►General news items:
Our greatest end-time enemies:
Many of you will be offended at this edition and others will simply ignore it. Some will take it to heart and move into the depths of experience with and of God.
We are currently in the forerunner time-period leading up to the monumental end-time events of Bible prophecy.
These times are specifically dangerous for believers as many evil forces intensify. If you are not well grounded in the things of our Lord you are in danger.
With God and His word removed from much of society today a new morality has come in. It is the morality of the other god, Satan lurking in the shadows of the true God.
Today people compare themselves among themselves and with Satan’s camouflaged morality and think that they’re okay.
Do you know what your biggest enemy is in these days?
It is you yourself!
As a believer we are saved in spirit but not in mind. Renewal of the mind is progressive and occurs when the right “tools” are used. Satan attacks the believer through the self life, the world system, and the demonic. In these days you had better know that the attacks are intensifying a great deal!
It is only the cross of Yeshua, and its application into our own lives that presents a barrier strong enough to keep us safe.
Today most churches teach you how to be self-fulfilled, self-important, self-sufficient, self-indulgent, self-preserved and self-fulfilled. They teach you how to be happy in and of the world. They are blind to the demonic in these areas. Of course they throw in a few miss-used verses to justify the glorification of self in the world. These ministers produce self-obsessed, worldly, demon-oppressed Christians!
These very same believers are in confusion, distress, torment, and most unprepared for the coming climactic end-time onslaughts.
They are easy to identify. They have no “horror” at the world and its morality. (Psalm 119:53) They are friends of the world. (James 4:4).
As believers you need to be really diligent to seek and apply the Bible to self, the world and the demonic. It does not come automatically.
As you move into deliverance in these three areas, you will be gloriously changed. Your love for our Lord will become unrestricted and you will be a light full of true wisdom.
Isaiah 43:12 “There was no foreign god among you; therefore you are My witnesses says the Lord.”
The “foreign gods” in the verse above obviously refer to actual gods like those of Babylon, but it can equally refer to the gods of worldliness, self obsession and the demonic.
Proverbs 25:26 “Whoever has no rule over his spirit is like a city broken down without walls.”
Your own heart:
To prepare yourself for the days ahead you must know your own heart. You must know that you can’t save yourself. You must allow, invite and welcome the cross of Messiah to continue to do its work in you.
The verse below is so short and so profound, far reaching and tragic! It is the cry of many in the world and the cry of many Christians and their deceived leaders.
Mark 15:30 “Save yourself and come down from the cross.”
I had an interesting talk / argument with a woman the other day. She proclaimed herself to be a Christian. She said that Theresa, Obama, Mandela, and Ghandi would all be in or go to heaven because they did such great works.
The Judgement Seat of Messiah reveals the rewarding of believers exclusively. The Great White Throne judgement reveals the judgement of all unbelievers exclusively. The first lot are rewarded for their Spirit-led works while second lot are cast into hell for their self-led works!
If you want to be saved on your good works, you need 100%. If you have ever sinned even in thought, you have failed. You can take the 100% freely given by our Messiah to you and find your name in His book.
Don’t think that you or anyone else is saved because you are a good person.
The shed blood of Messiah is the antithesis of the blood of Adam. The unrighteous, unredeemed blood of Adam is in fact the “blood” of Satan. It flows in the unsaved automatically by natural birth. Only the new birth through the shed blood of Messiah sets us free.
In these days we are to “guard our hearts”. There is great spiritual conflict in the unseen world and extra vigilance is needed. Satan knows what your weaknesses are and he will use them to bring you down.
Beware of unprepared disciples and ministers who know nothing of taking up their own cross daily.
You will know them not by their ministry or by their persuasive garbage, but by their fruits.
Shallow disciples draw and attract shallow people to them. In this day there are very few who are true, holy, separated, broken, humble, cross-bearing believers out there. Most Christian leaders today live for self and worldly gain. Their motto is “Me Now” and this is what they teach their deluded flock.
Matthew 24:12 “Because of the increase of wickedness the love of many will grow cold”. Some translations use the word “most” instead of “many”.
What a frightening verse! Do you see it? There is a direct relationship between wickedness and growing cold in the Lord. We could just as accurately say that to keep yourself secure in Messiah, you must get rid of the influence of evil and wickedness all around. Don’t tolerate it and live with it...it will destroy you!
Revelation 12:9 “So that great dragon was cast out- that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world.”
Revelation 12:12 “...For the devil has come down to you having great wrath, because he knows that his time is short.”
Revelation 13:4 “So they worshipped the dragon who gave authority to the beast, saying who is like the beast?”
The verses above are tribulation verses, but we are in the forerunner period now and the principle still applies. Note the incredible deception! The whole world will worship Satan (the antichrist) thinking he is the real deal!
You must understand that the end-time conflicts and evils are spiritual in source and nature. If you do not know and understand this you will be operating in the flesh in all your opinions and actions. If you do not have the gifts of the Spirit in your life, you will not see the evil spirits at work and you will be incompetent in dealing with spiritual conflict.
The tragedy today is most believers can’t see the devil lurking in most of the things they esteem highly. The world and its ways have so infiltrated modern, superficial Christians that they are spiritually blind.
The reason for this is that today’s Christians want instant results and instant gratification. They want pop-up results now. They are ignorant of God’s word and are blind to its author.
Pr 28:4 “Those who forsake the law (word) praise the wicked.”
Today many church leaders are more experienced in computer games than discipleship. They are very well equipped to lead their flock to hell. Shallow shepherds produce shallow sheep and wolves produce little wolves.
What you believe defines you. Your worldview and which leader produced it, defines your depth with God or your stupidity. If you are a true believer with your heart set on fire for our Lord, you have selected to have the Living God as your teacher, and judge. If not have you selected, by default, to have Satan as your teacher, god and judge. He will judge you with great love, liberty and all inclusiveness. He will tell you how valuable you and your opinions are to the world. He will allow you anything you want. But he, with you, will end in hell.
The church as your enemy:
Before I go any further let me add that there are many wonderful Churches out there being led by the Spirit of God and producing radical disciples of the Lord.
There are close to 40, 000 Christian denominations. Every one is a creation of man. (Check it out in Wikipedia – it is shocking)
Why this is so terrible is because it flies in the face of God’s word.
1 Corinthians 1:10 “I plead with you brethren, by the name of our Lord Yeshua that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and judgement.”
You can be very sure that all these man-made denominations will become more and more devil-made in the times ahead.
The big identifying mark in all man-made churches is that they adhere to Babylonian customs and traditions. These are the evil spirit-inspired convocations of Christmas, Easter and the like. This will be one of the big dividers of our day between those who go with the flow of God and those who will go with Satan.
The word or the world:
Satan, Godless editors and managers, fuel the world’s media today. They are enemies of God’s ways and word. Do you know God’s word very well? Many Christians today do not know their Bible. They do know what the world’s media is saying and what’s on at the movies and the world’s temples of entertainment.
If this is you, I have some news for you. You will be caught in the satanic outpouring of deception and evil. If you do not change course, you are in great danger.
Do you know something interesting about the Olivet discourse? This was the occasion where some of the disciples privately asked our Lord what would be the signs of His coming? Five times in this single discourse He warned of deception! In fact that was the very first “sign.”
It is only diligent Spirit-led study of the word, and a contrite spirit before God that will keep you from deception in the coming days.
May I share with you some testimony? In 1980 I began to read my Bible through cover to cover. I did it three times. I am so grateful that my Lord led me to do this. In fact that is what inspired perpetual ongoing Bible study in my life since then. Today I have the entire Bible on 53 CD’s playing in my car.
By the way, you need to study your Bible without your church doctrine glasses on and especially without the glasses of the so-called church fathers. This will make you their enemy, but so be it.
Coca Cola Jesus is the product of the Christian media. It has created multiple-images of our Lord, enough to fit every taste. This god would dare not offend anyone. He is a presented as a god, but the non-interfering type. You know, the one that you can keep in your pocket or hang on your wall until a rainy day. You can have a dose of Coca Cola Jesus for some nice refreshment!
TBN: Trinity Broadcasting Network has evolved over time into a terrible institution full of superficiality. That is not discipleship! TBN has long since removed the only end-time teachers they had on. They decided that a great deal of the Bible is not to be touched. (One third of the Bible relates to end-time events).They have decided to keep their people ignorant of these great truths. They decided that no minister on their network is permitted to say anything negative about Islam.
TBN and many churches of the same brand call themselves Bible believers and will stress the importance of being Bible-based. Yet they are not. They preach and teach only what they deem to be “positive”, out of the Bible. They avoid all the “difficult sayings” and the “severity” of the Bible.
The Bible is hugely positive for those who are His, with much severe corrective instruction. The Bible is a terror for unbelievers, counterfeit Christians and all false religions.
It is an offense to remove the “severity” from the Bible. This produces spineless, disobedient, shallow, unbalanced, untrustworthy, gullible people. (Romans 11:22)
TBN is fast becoming an institution that is dangerous for your spiritual growth and health. It is far too one-sided and materialistic.
YouTube and the social media bring out many psychologically disturbed people trying to be God’s ministers. They catch onto every bit of wacky pseudoscience and bit of fanciful garbage that has a hint of spirituality. In their quest for self-importance they claim “great proofs”. It is not so much their messages that are the problem, but that they themselves are in desperate need of ministry, or the local mental home. Unfortunately they are the very ones who cheapen the internet and make almost everything suspect.
Many of these people presenting YouTube video teachings or messages are not messengers of the cross. They are in many cases people suffering from rejection, looking for acceptance. The true messenger of the cross has the marks of the cross all over his life. You have no right being in ministry if you have not been well-broken and prepared by the cross of Messiah. Only these are the called of God. All the others are called by themselves.
That said, there is some very good material available on some of these channels and sites, but they are few and far between. The real good and safe messengers are normally from the old-school disciples who have been following our Lord for a long time. You can just sense it.
Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater though!
YouTube and other internet-based media offer a wonderful method of spreading the good news far and wide instantly, but you need to be discerning so that you can sort between the wolves and the sheep. Beware the wolf-criers out there. There are so many on various internet media who are crying wolf at every insignificant end-time thing. They have no spiritual discernment. Many are secret Jezebels led by a host of evil spirits.
There are many Christians proclaiming to be God’s messengers who are suffering from many modern-day “diseases” originating from not knowing God and His word.
The world as your enemy:
When walking in truth God will often times cause even your (and His) enemies to be at peace with you. But most certainly not all the time.
It’s good to remember that the spirit of Satan is resident in the world system and the Spirit of God is resident in the Kingdom of God. There will always be varying degrees of enmity and attack by the evil world system on the people of the Kingdom of God.
The world will attack true Christians more and more in the coming days. The homosexual world will be an attacker. Islam will be an every growing attacker. Spirit-less churches will attack those with and in the Spirit. We can expect a wide range of attacks, simply because the flesh and the Spirit are always at war.
What is God’s main message now:
Why is it that very few of the old-school giants of the Kingdom seldom preached on end times? It is because it was not on their radar, because God didn’t put it there. Quite simply the end-time issues were far from them back then. There was no reason for them to know it and teach it besides the odd few messages.
But now that we are very close, it is the Spirit of God revealing and unfolding many revelations on the subject. Now that we are in the season, God is informing, teaching and warning now.
Daniel 12:4-9 “But you Daniel, shut up and seal the words of this book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro and knowledge shall increase...Go your way Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.”
According to the verses above, knowledge of end time events will be unsealed in these days. This is exactly what we see all around us. I have never seen so many wonderful preachers and teachers revealing so much on the issues of eschatology!
If you are standing on a long straight railway line and the train is way off near the horizon, you have no need to get off just yet. But once the train gets close, you had better take action! The same is true relating to the coming of our Lord, the coming of antichrist and the host of related issues.
This is what God is saying now! Ignore His now-voice at your own peril! And do you know what? There are untold numbers of churches out there about to be run over by a giant speeding locomotive named Satan!
Because we are in the season, God is revealing His in-season word. If you are in a church that won’t touch the subject, you had better find out why. If your church has decided to keep you ignorant of one third of the Bible’s content, you are in danger of being swept away by all sorts of doctrines of demons that will flood in, in the place of what should be there.
You can judge a book by its cover. You can also judge a church by its cover. What it preaches and what it avoids speaks volumes. Paul said, “I have not shunned to preach to you the whole gospel.”
Of course I’m not suggesting that eschatology should be the only message preached, but it must be a major part of your “diet” in these days.
The identifying marks of the “bride of Messiah” and the bride of Satan.
There is a visual element to belief. People wear a visible cross around their necks because they want to identify albeit superficially, with the cross of Calvary. Likewise, other Biblical items related to convocations or worship are also important items of identification.
Hebraic items are clean, and founded in the Bible, both New and Old Covenants. Hebraic items as in the image above plot the path from the Old into the New Covenant. (The prayer shawl, the menorah and the shofar are found in both.)
Babylonian items are dirty, being founded in the heart and mind of Satan and should have no place in the true believer’s life. These are all things related to Christmas, Easter, “Nicolaitan” dress (minister’s collars, robes and anything that separates the clergy above the laity.)
You may think these are not big issues, but they relate very much to identification which itself speaks of who you are.
The true born again, water and Spirit baptised believers will be in love with our Lord and His word, but the Christians who simply profess belief in the Lord will see the things of God as foolishness and will be self-obsessed and driven. They will identify with the world and all its ways.
There will be no clear, distinct division between God’s kingdom and the kingdom of the world.
When the pressure is on they will turn against the true Spirit-formed and led believers.
The main identifying marks of the true born again believer will be the imprints of the cross of Messiah on every aspect of his or her life. They will be known by the fruit of the work of the cross in their lives.
●Galatians 5:22 “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self -control. Against such there is no law.”
The fruits of the flesh will be the identifying marks of the counterfeit or superficial believer.
●Galatians 5:19-20 “The works of the flesh are evident, which are adultery, fornication, uncleanness, rebellion to God, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissentions, heresies, envy, murder, drunkenness, revelries and the like...”
Proverbs 11:2 “When pride comes, then comes shame; but with the humble is wisdom.”
What you can do:
Jeremiah 15:16 “Your words were found and I ate them, and your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; for I am called by your name, O Lord God of hosts.”
Titus 2:12-13 “Denying ungodliness and worldly lust, we should live soberly, righteously, and Godly in this present age, looking for the blessed hope and appearing of our great God and Saviour Yeshua.”
The two verses above relate to diligence in our study and application of the word of God and secondly to our lifestyle. Both are needed.
We are in a most wonderful time, but it is full of severity, gravity and all seriousness. This is the time of dividing. The true are going one way and the superficial counterfeits are going the other. In this time now our Lord is opening the eyes of His family to many glorious truths. Many are engaged in radical transformation.
In the middle of it all, the enemy is at work too, but he has no power over those who have risen on the far side of the cross!
Isaiah 42:16 “I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them...”
Isaiah 60:15 “Whereas you have been forsaken and hated so that no one went through you, I will make you an eternal excellence, a joy of many generations.”
Isaiah 51:3 “For the Lord will comfort Zion, He will comfort all her waste places; He will make her wilderness like Eden, and the desert like the garden of the Lord; joy and gladness shall be found in it, thanksgiving and the voice of melody.”
I took this picture in the Namib Desert and manipulated it. I superimposed the girl over the tree. This was the foundation for one of my art works in paint. It symbolises one staring out of a baron, dry desert, which is the modern world devoid of God’s Spirit.
1 Corinthians 2:9 “Eye has not seen nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those that love Him”
Shalom and grow in grace!
