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 Christendomand 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.

Bible prophecy gives us many clues and pointers as to just where we are on the prophetic map. We are commanded to know the times and season. It’s a command of God, not a suggestion!
There are many watching for these developments and many looking, but looking in the wrong places. Many are asleep and not looking at all. Many are watching and looking in all the right places and coming up with a pretty consistent view – in line with the Bible and what the Spirit of God is saying now.
In this edition I want to share some of these things and some very exciting revelations and discoveries from my own prayer, study and thoughts.
We must know the voice of the Spirit of God in all these things and respond to Him and not man-made, man-pleasing motivations of spiritual pride. We must also be ready to change our opinions when we discover that we were wrong, or new revelation comes along.
It’s good to bear in mind that when people use the terms “100% certain” or “God told me” – that’s the give-away clue to avoid them and what they are saying.
●Please be aware that certain Rabbis have placed curses on those attempting to find the time of the Messiah’s coming from the book of Daniel. Spiritual warfare, the gifts and the prayers of binding and loosing are needed in this regard.
What about 2016?
I would like nothing more than for these things to all get wrapped up by Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets) this year. It may be, but it looks more likely that it will be 2017. Of course that may be wrong too. I’m not date-setting but date-watching. I’m not trying to prove anything except that you need to be ready!
I am looking at possibilities and probabilities.
As we approach Rosh Hashanah in October this year – we will know and see if it’s possible for the tribulation / rapture to occur by the signs.
If it is going to be this year or next, the signs will speak and give us warning beforehand. As you will see from this edition, the evidence for next year is becoming very strong.
Again, don’t put all your trust in a date. Put all your trust in our great King and Lord, but don’t be an idiot and ignore the evidence either.
If you get ready, abandoning a life of sin, and walking in holiness, you have lost nothing. The devil has lost you and you have gained greatly, even if our Lord tarries.
Incredible insights into cycles, generations and time-spans:
The word “generation”, in the New Covenant is very interesting. The word is Strong’s G1074, “genea” meaning: “Those of the same stock or family, or a multitude living at the same time.”
So the word “generation” in Matthew 24:34 relates to a group of people, the Jews in this case. The word can also have a time element contained in its meaning as well.
As we look at the time factor of a generation, we are right at the end of a biblical generation, whichever counting method you use. We are on borrowed time already!
With this in mind let’s have a look now at some incredible, alarming and amazing facts about the generation called Israel and various time spans of major prophetic importance:
2017: Israel will mark four major milestone anniversaries:
Next year is 2017, but because the Hebrew year changes at Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets) on the 21st September on our calendar, we have to refer to the time as 2017 /2018. This is also the change from 5777 to 5778 on the Hebrew calendar.
So, just bear in mind that prophetically, 2017 runs into 2018 as 2016 runs into 2017.
In the Bible, many numbers have important spiritual meanings, some with distinct prophetic implications. Some of these prophetic numbers are, 120, 100, 70, 50 and 40. The prophetic significance of each is derived from the verses in which they are used.
●120 = Divine probation. ●100 = Completeness of suffering, election. ●70 = Perfect spiritual order, restoration of Israel. ●50 = Pentecost, Jubilee and Divine Revelation. ●40 = testing and trial.
Now let’s have a look at something that is a bit more than a coincidence!
●The First Zionist Congress was held in 1897. That will be 120 years ago in 2017. This congress saw the birth of Zionism and the original preparations for the foundation of the State of Israel.
●The Balfour Declaration, giving the Jews the legal right to return to the land took place in November 1917 making it 100 years old in 2017. Genesis 15:13-16 speaks of the generation of Israeli bondage in Egypt lasting 400 years, coming to an end in the 4th generation (100 years).
●In November 1947 the UN General Assembly passed the “Partition Resolution” allowing for the creation of the Jewish State of Israel in 1948. This will be 70 years ago in 2017. 70 is the number of completeness and restoration. It is the time of Daniel’s monumental prophecy of the 70 weeks. It was the time of release from captivity in Babylon.
●The liberation and reunification of Jerusalem in the Six-Day War occurred in June 1967 making it 50 years old in 2017. 50 is the number of release. It is the number of Pentecost and Jubilee. This number is also associated with judgement. Noah’s flood lasted for 150 days, which is 50x3.
●There are 40 jubilees from the cross to 2017.
We know that the entire end-time period is referred to in the Bible as “the days of Noah”. Interestingly Noah warned the world for 120 years of impending judgement! (Some say it was 100 years).
From this amazing convergence, which is all harmonizing and interlocking now, we see a pattern of agreement that we dare not ignore.
2017 is going to be a monumental year in world history!
Jubilees are very difficult to count and come up with a totally trustworthy conclusion. Some use the number 49, some 50, and some include leap years, other don’t. Some take into account changes in the calendar, some don’t. Some include the times God does not count Jubilees (when Israel was out of favour), others do.
Some calculations put this year, 2016 as a Jubilee start, and others put it next year. Either way, it’s very close indeed. Some calculate a Jubilee as being every 50 years and others believe it is 49 years with the 50th being the first of the next count. This would account for some of the differences.
Either way we can still get some important insights, as many of these things are dovetailing now with many other timing methods and factors.
If Jubilees are counted continuously and using 50, not 49 then 1917 (Zionist Congress) was the start of the 68th Jubilee. 1967 (Jerusalem restored) was the 69th Jubilee and the 70th Jubilee is 2017 / 2018. This 70th Jubilee is from the Exodus.
The 120th is the Great Jubilee measured from the beginning of creation. It begins in 2017 /2018!
So, it is both the 70th and 120th dovetailing into 2017! Remember the meanings of the numbers.
There were 50 jubilees from creation to the Exodus (1483). There are 70 jubilees from the Exodus to 2017. There are 120 jubilees from creation to 2017.
Interestingly 120 Jubilees (120x50=6000) using the continuous method brings the 6000-year history of man under sin to a close in 2017 according to the Torah Calendar. (There are some discrepancies here.)
The Jubilee prophecy of Rabbi Judah Be Samuel:
Note that this prophecy dovetails exactly with the abovementioned Jubilee discussions.
In 1217 this Rabbi made a number of startling prophecies, which he claimed came from the Lord. He said that the Ottoman Turks would rule over Jerusalem for eight jubilees. He made a number of other prophecies which all came to pass. Another was that Jerusalem would become a no-man’s-land after the ninth jubilee which did happen. It was from 1917 to 1967 that Jerusalem was exactly a no-man’s land.
He said that the 10th Jubilee would see Jerusalem back in Jewish hands and then the Messiah would come. The end of this time period is in 2017.
Can we rely on a prophecy from such an individual, who would not have been saved in our terms? Well, God can speak through whom He wishes. He chose a donkey once. His prophecies did come to pass. The fact that there is a great convergence of so many other factors adds more weight to it.
The incredible Metonic cycle:
We can’t see these things in our normal calendar. We must use the Jewish calendar and time frames, which are based on the lunar calendar. Just like our normal calendar has months of different lengths, so does the lunar calendar.
The tribulation period is made up of two halves, one being 1260 days long and the other 1290 days (Daniel12:11) This makes a total of 2250 days.
With this in mind there are only certain seven-year periods containing 2550 days, with the start time being Rosh Hashanah or the Feast of Trumpets.
The tribulation is often called the seventieth week of Daniel. That is a week of years and not days in context. So people using the term seventieth week are talking of the seven-year tribulation period.
You can see that only certain seven-year periods qualify for the seventieth week by having a careful look at the two diagrams below:
This Metonic Cycle (corrected according to NASA) was originally a bit different and has now been updated and corrected. It is now consistent with many other counting methods giving us the required number of moons making up the seven year tribulation period.
Note that the table below shows the same thing, just in a different format.
The unique, amazing 2017 sign in the sky:
Revelation 12 contains beautiful imagery of a woman clothed with the sun (Israel) and on her head was a garland of 12 stars (the 12 tribes of Israel), with the moon at her feet. A red dragon (Satan) stood before the woman as her child was born (Messiah).
The interpretation is the woman clothed with the sun is Israel, who gives birth to our Messiah and then immediately Satan as the red dragon resists and attacks Israel and our Messiah.
In September 2017 there is a precise configuration and alignment within the astronomical constellation of Virgo.
Using the program “Stellarium” which is free to download, going back over 7000 years in time or 7000 years forward in time, this configuration only occurs this single time which is in 2017. According to some experts, this is extraordinary and unique.
NASA’s program, “SkyView is a virtual observatory and also shows this, but it has a feature in which the actual colours appear as they really are, according to certain wavelengths. In September 2017 the area around the dragon anomaly goes red.
The alignment has been visible since 2015, but it moves on and becomes spot on in 2017.
●By the way, Google has blocked out the view of this anomaly in their program “Google Sky.” Perhaps they think they have now got rid of God!
All of these things would be of no real consequence if the things of the world were not all pointing to the same thing – a very soon coming catastrophic judgement!
One simply has to ask – how much longer can the sin, evil and wickedness of the world thrive without running headlong into judgement?
As we approach 2017, the very existence of Israel is being threatened, undermined, questioned and challenged by Islam, many churches and almost the whole world. Jerusalem is up for partition and division. Declarations in the UN, by the EU and hosts of demon possessed church leaders are all singing the same “Hitler” songs.
Here are some of the signs that we need to watch for:
●Firstly forget about any rapture or tribulation start without a peace treaty of some sort signed by the person who will be revealed in that act, as the antichrist. So we need to see a deal between Israel and the Palestinians come about.
Some say previous peace accords account for this. Not true. None of the previous accords were ratified and are in operation today. None of them revealed the antichrist. If any of them were to be ratified, they would have to be fully re-negotiated.
●We need to watch for anything and everything to do with a new Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. It is required at mid- tribulation. Right now it would not be surprising to see something along these lines suddenly come to light. The Temple Institute has everything required, already made, prepared and waiting.
●We need to watch for the one-day destruction of Damascus and the entry of Israel into the situation militarily. We also need to watch for the situation with Russia, Iran and others to intensify.
●We need to watch for Quran-based Muslim invasions and migration turning to jihad.
●We need to watch for Europe’s downfall preparing the way for a new beast to arise. Europe is not ready yet.
●The “king of the north” and the “king of the south” have not yet made their appearances. We need to watch for this.
●We need to watch for a global economic collapse, preparing the way for an antichrist takeover and domination of the world’s finances.
●The earth is getting angry! Earths upheavals in the form of earthquakes, volcanoes, storms and the like will intensify greatly as we approach the time.
Many of these things can occur very quickly.
Time is running out fast:
I would not put a lot of weight on any one of the mentioned factors here, but collectively, the evidence is compelling to say the least.
I’ve been asked a few times if people should make long-term plans for their lives in light of time being so short.
This is something I can’t and won’t speak to. It is up to you. It all depends on what and how you see things. Pray about it, seek the word of the Lord.
I can only speak for myself in this regard. No, I would not be making long-term plans, but that’s for me only. Besides, there are many things I have not shared yet relating to the whole end-time scenario.
The Bible says that we are to “occupy until He comes” This doesn’t mean sit and do your knitting until He comes. The word “occupy” is a military term and means to make spiritual advances against the kingdom of the world and for our Lord. We are to occupy spiritual territory for our Lord.
The world is approaching a frightening time. In the tribulation people will die from pure shock! Masses will try to kill themselves, but death will flee from them. (Revelation 9:6)
Revelation 6:15-17 “The kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in caves and in the rocks of the mountains and said to the mountains and rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come and who is able to stand.”
Note that even the “best” of society are reduced to a quivering mess of fear and panic in the coming times!
Some other parallel verses speaking of similar things are: Luke 23:30, Isaiah 2:19.
►BUT, please remember to read next week’s edition entitled “The logic of a pre-tribulation rapture.”
Yes there is a huge amount of real bad, terrible things about to occur, but in next week’s edition there will be all the good news!
The signs will speak. I can’t and will not try to make things fit my ideas. When I see the biblical signs line up, harmonise, then I’ll start yelling.
So now we see that Jubilee counts point to 2017, and the prophetic numbers; 120, 100, 70, 50 and 40 have convergences in 2017. This is far more than a coincidence.
As the time approaches, I fully expect our Lord to reveal more and more. I expect His warnings to grow louder and stronger.
It is totally consistent of God to warn of coming troubles. He always has, and now that we are on the verge of the greatest ever trouble, why would He not warn the world?
Jeremiah 30:11“For I am with you (Israel) to save you; though I make a full end of all nations where I have scattered you, yet I will not make a complete end of you. I will correct you in justice and will not let you go altogether unpunished.”
US, UK, Europe and others have done well largely because they have had a large population of Jews. Soon the Jews will flee anti-Semitism back to their land. Then beware nations of the world – your doom will be upon you. And it will be a “full end!”
Note in that verse above that all host nations of Jews in the diaspora will be destroyed!
I took the background picture in a forest near my home. I added some texture to it and superimposed the butterfly over it to create the overall effect.
Shalom and grow in grace!
Edition 309: April 27th 2016
The miracle of the Bible:
The miracle of the Bible:
1 Corinthians 2:12-14 “We have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. These things we speak not in words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. The natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
In the invisible realm are spirits of truth and spirits of error. They are spirits and not just belief systems! (1 John 4:6) We are to test these spirits (1 John 4:1).
Everything about being a true child of the living God, born into His family by the new birth is supernatural and miraculous. We don’t always see the miraculous but it’s there, and it all comes from a book spewing death or life to its readers.
In many cases it is the church minister or hierarchy that kills the word, transforming it into an instrument of dead letter that kills. But at the end of the day, it’s always up to you personally, to meet the requirements for the Bible to come to life.
2 Corinthians 3:6 “He made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.”
John 6:63 “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words I speak to you are spirit and life.”
The church minister is not a minister of words. He is a steward of the supernatural Spirit of God. Today, very few ministers are properly equipped stewards of the supernatural, contained in the words of the Bible.
Matthew 22:29 “You are mistaken (lit=deceived), not knowing the scriptures nor the power of God.”
Do you see the incredible importance in this one single verse above, of knowing the truth? All deception and gullibility comes in on the wings of ignorance of God’s Spirit-breathed word.
Many times in your quest for the truth, the Spirit of God will lead you out of organised, institutional churchianity. But be careful; make sure the Spirit of God is leading you.
The miracle Bible must make you a living miracle. It has the power to do just that. If it’s not, you need to go and check your sources.
The Miracle of the Bible:
There are so many miracles around and about the Bible. The very existence and survival of the Bible after some 4000 years is one of them. The greatest miracle of all is the fact that it has and still does change lives totally and dramatically.
●The Bible has been the cause of more wars, killing and bloodshed than any other book. More people have been killed as a result of the Bible, or should we say the misuse of the Bible than any other book.
●No other book ever has been more popular since its creation than the Bible. No other book has stood securely in the face of so many attacks upon it through the ages.
●No other book ever written has been described as a book bringing death to its readers or the life of God, depending on how you approach it.
●No other book ever written looks into the future and tells you just what is coming – and it does!
●No other book ever written has a 100% success rate in fulfilled prophecy.
If the Spirit of the living God is alive and active in your heart, you have the author of the Bible right there in your heart! He’s not out there in some pub or behind some pulpit.
The Bible is 4000 years old in all, with the New Covenant just under 2000 years old. It has a consistent harmony in message. It was written by 66 authors, but actually, One single author – the Holy Spirit. The real name is the Holy Bible! Countless attacks against it and part of it have failed to do it any harm.
God and His word are One.
God transferred the word to the Son and the Son to the Spirit. The word is now shed abroad in our hearts. We must make the word of God our close and personal, deep, eternal friend, just like our Saviour.
There are so many wonderful mysteries still to be revealed in the Bible. There are many that have been revealed like hidden messages in codes, colours, languages, numbers and mathematics.
There is so much evidence available out there on the supernatural content and workings of the Bible. In our day, so much is being discovered proving the miracle of the Bible. We see much in the realms of science, technology, history, archaeology and so many other fields, proving the Bible to be true.
Different types of codes have been discovered and are being used by some men of God to come up with the most amazing discoveries.
For me, one of the most amazing is the code, for want of a better term, identifying incredible mathematical patterns in the Bible. The original Bible was written in Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek, all alpha – numeric languages. In other words, each letter of the alphabet also has a corresponding number associated with it.
This means that you can simply add up the numeric value of a word. In the Bible, numbers also have meanings, derived from verses using the numbers. This is widely held. For example: ●One = unity. ●Two = division. ●Three = trinity. ●Four = the world. ●Five = grace. ●Six = man under sin. ●Seven = spiritual perfection. ●Eight = resurrection. ●Thirteen = rebellion to God.
Amazingly every single name and title for our Lord in the Bible adds up to a multiple of eight, with the exception of one, which is the title nailed to the cross, “Yeshua of Nazareth, King of the Jews”, which adds up to a multiple of thirteen (rebellion to God). This is because on the cross, He became our sin and rebellion! (There is much, much more about this, which I can’t get into now.)
Not surprisingly, every single title and description for all enemies of God in the Bible, including Satan, adds up to a multiple of thirteen, which is rebellion.
Consider the following:
Here’s another miracle revealed in the original texts of the Bible. In the Old Covenant the titles for God and some of the people involved in the flood story, all have meanings. In fact the meanings, when written out in table form and read from top to bottom, paint the entire story of salvation!
The very survival of Israel and the Jewish people is itself a spectacular ongoing miracle.
We are brothers in arms with the Bible and its supernatural word on Israel.
You can’t grow spiritually in isolation from the Bible – the full and complete Bible!
The Bible and its relationship to the world, self, and the demonic:
Because the Bible contains the Spirit of God within it, and its words are potentially “spirit and life”, it is in conflict with and on a collision course with everything of the spirit of the devil, demons and the coming antichrist.
As we know, the devil works through the sin nature or self-life (flesh), the world and the demonic. So, obviously, all of these areas are going to need the word of God applied to them. The Bible tells us that these are the main key areas of our lives that need to have the cross applied to them on an ongoing basis, subsequent to our salvation.
These three areas (self, world and demonic) will be the areas that you will be able to look at objectively, from God’s point of view, to see if you are on the right track. “I have been crucified to the world” says the Bible. (Galatians 6:14)
1 John 2:15 “Do not love the world or the things of the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”
1 John 5:4 “Whoever is born of God overcomes the world.”
Those who are truly born of God, and desperate to change, and to get to know our God more, will go through a conflict and identity crisis. The supernatural power of the devil to keep his people blinded and trapped will start losing its grip and influence.
As you take up your cross daily and apply it to these areas, you will see miracle-changes begin to occur in your life.
You won’t see it all in one go, but see it you will and must.
One of the dramatic changes that you will undergo is in the area of self orientation and domination. You must apply the words of the Bible – “I (self) have been crucified; it’s no longer I who lives, but our Messiah who lives in me.” (Galatians 2:20)
As you do this, your life’s orientation changes from me, myself, I, to an outward looking orientation. Your life will begin to desire to live for God, obey Him and serve Him and others. With many, this comes as a shock. I know it did with me. For a long time I couldn’t understand what this new power was in me that made me desire my God and His people. I was extremely worldly in all my ways, and quite quickly, all of that changed.
1 John 2:3 “By this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments (word.) He who says ‘I know Him but does not keep His word, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know we are in Him.”
What of the demonic?
1 John 2:18-19 “Little children, it is the last hour; and you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but were not of us; for if they if they had been of us, they would have continued with us, but they went out that they might be manifest, that none of them were of us.”
People who are not “of us” or “of God” will not endure. The forces of the demonic will cause them to ultimately fall away and turn back to the home of demons – the world. It will become manifest that they are not of us. There will be no supernatural power of God in them to cause them to endure and attain the many victories that are required.
The work of the demonic in a believer will always manifest with the same or similar fruits. They will not endure. They will be full of stress. They will not be at rest. They will be filled with legalism and judgmentalism. They will ignore the work of the cross or play it down. They will be full of pride and love for materialism. They will love their lives in the world.
1 Corinthians 3:19 “The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God...He catches the wise in their craftiness...The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise are futile.”
1 Corinthians 14:33 “God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.”
2 Timothy 3:15-17 “You have known the Holy Scriptures which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in our Messiah. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
The above portion of scripture is so very powerful. Note that it is knowledge of the Holy Scriptures that are able to make you wise. More than this, they are able to make you endure; give you hope, faith, peace, victory and so much more!
The word is a light and lamp:
Psalm 119:105 “Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light to my path.”
Psalm 43:3 “Send out Your light and Your truth! Let them lead me; let them bring me to Your holy hill and to your tabernacle.”
Do you think our Lord knows where we are prophetically? Of course He does. His light is shining on His path now in terms of where we are prophetically. He leads and guides us according to our time now. If your minister is not shedding any light on the most important, dramatic issues of our day, which have eternal consequences, he is speaking his own useless words.
Do you want to know if your church is on the right track? Is it a light and lamp now? Are you receiving the now-word? Are you being taught Bible prophecy?
The messy church and its leaders:
With so many people ill-taught and half taught today, and so many in love with the world, when the pressure is on and the shaking begins (which will be very soon), they will all see how far behind they have been left, and how much they need to catch up!
When you meet fellow believers, you can immediately tell, which one’s experience comes from many hours, months and years of Spirit led study of the word and you can also tell which one’s experience is shallow, superficial, second hand, and mixed with worldly ideas.
I cut my spiritual teeth on the old-school, hell- fire and brimstone preachers whose knees were scarred from praying and who had spent 40 years or more pursuing our Lord. There are none like that today, especially the young so-called ministers.
2 Timothy 4:2-3 (Amp) “Preach the word! Keep your sense of urgency...show people in what way their lives are wrong. Convince, rebuke, correct, warn and encourage them. For the time is coming when people will not tolerate and endure sound and wholesome instruction (doctrine), but having ears itching for things pleasing and gratifying, they will gather to themselves one teacher after another, chosen to satisfy their own liking and to foster the errors they hold, and will turn aside from hearing the truth.”
Is your church open to the moving of the Holy Spirit? Let me share with you a little secret. Quite amazingly, you’ll find that churches which don’t teach, preach and experience the full moving of the Spirit (through the baptism of the Spirit), don’t teach or preach Bible prophecy.
Even in this day of fast moving prophetic fulfilment many churches are silent on the subject. Do yourselves a favour...get out and run away! Not from the Lord, but those who ignore what the Spirit is saying now.
1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 “Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast to what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.”
2 Peter 1:21 “Prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God, spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.”
Truth is always attacked by error! Isn’t it interesting that those that are in the Spirit, and open to the full 27% of the Bible which contains prophecy, are almost always attacked by the dead, Spirit-less, blind- to- prophecy bunch?
I would rather go to the planet mars than some of those churches. At least I don’t think the devil indwells the men on mars.
My friends, you must understand that moving forward in and with our Lord can be quite a fight sometimes. That’s because we are in a spiritual universe.
1 Timothy 6:12 “Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
Jude 1:3 “...I exhort you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.”
A supernatural hatred:
People have tried to water the Bible down, change it and make it un-holy – all to their own eternal detriment. Anyone who even wants to change it, is demon possessed and to be avoided. Of course there are translational errors and differences in the Bibles out there, but they are mostly not major doctrinal changes and were not made by intention.
You need to reject totally, throw away, any Bible that changes foundational doctrines. Today as Satan sees his days are short, he is at work in this regard!
The Catholic church produced the dark ages. A time of mass murder and hatred to put Hitler to shame! They removed the Bible from society during this time. Wherever the Bible was cast down or reinterpreted, the result was advancing evil, sin and wickedness.
►In fact, a Spirit-less Bible causes division – denominations! (Jude 1:19)
True believers will receive not one but a number of different eternal crowns for various things. Excuse me for going off on this tantrum: Kings or queens don’t wear their crowns all the time. The crown is a symbol of their authority. They wear the crowns at important events.
At important events the leaders of the Catholic and Anglican churches, since their foundation, wear their crowns. You’ve seen it many times. Their crowns are called the mitre. It is a fabric embroidered crown made in the shape of a fishes head with the mouth open.
The origin of the mitre (without any question, universally believed), is the crown worn by Babylonian priests, at important events in dedication to the satanic, pagan, fish-god Dagon.
Doesn’t that speak to you? Doesn’t that send a million warning signs to you about every single thing originating from the Catholic church. Next time you see the Catholic leader wearing this crown, remember that he is confirming and affirming the authority of the satanic fish god Dagon and all the evil ensuing from it. (The Anglicans too)
Interestingly, the Bible is all about love, forgiveness, peace, joy, victory, new eternal life, purpose, release from stress and a million other godly things, yet the Bible is the only book hated without cause – just like our Messiah of love.
The Bible offers the only life and lifestyle that works! You don’t believe me? Okay, I’ll answer you in a million years time – the answer will still be the same and valid then.
The Bible contains within its pages the greatest “I told you so” ever. Prophecy has and is still proving that. Changed lives continue to prove its supernatural origins, existence and being. You can’t prove it wrong like many think they can.
It changes you and you can’t change it.
The Bible is and contains the greatest drama of all time. It must become your best friend.
These are two of my pictures which I merged into one to create the effect. I’ve manipulated the Baobab tree with a few filters. I shot the flower picture at night with strong backlighting and front lighting as well.
Shalom and grow in grace!
Edition 308: April 20th 2016
The drama of Passover:
The drama of Passover:
The purpose of this edition is to show the importance, significance and drama of Passover, its richness, major messages and the incredible satanic attack on it by a large part of the church.
You must see and know just what it is, that the church has thrown out.
We are now at the start of the biblical season of holy feast days starting with Passover.
In considering the momentous damage done to the holy convocations of the Lord, by the Catholic church through the ages, you might like to consider that the name “Vatican” means “divining serpent.” And the word “Catholic” means “universal.” So here we have a religion trying to become universal, as it always has, empowered by the divining serpent.
The seven Feasts are called “The Feasts of the Lord.” They are not the Jewish Feasts. If you say, like many deceived ministers that they are the Jewish Feasts, then you must say that Passover is of and for the Jews! Perhaps you think then, that Easter is for the Gentile church!
Leviticus 15:31 “You shall separate the children of Israel from their uncleanness, lest they die in their uncleanness when they defile My tabernacle that is among them.”
1 Corinthians 5:8 “Let us keep the feast (Passover), not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”
Of course the seven feasts are for the children of Israel, but they are more than that, they are not limited to the Jews, they are for the people of the Lord.
The drama of Passover:
●Passover marks the original birth of the nation of Israel. Isn’t it interesting that as the children of Israel fled Egypt, the enemy came after them immediately?
●In our times, the day after the modern birth of the state of Israel in 1948, they were attacked by numerous Arab nations in the “War of Independence.” These Arab nations were all defeated, by Israel’s rag-tag volunteer army, one day old!
●Now as Israel is about to enter her final and most important birth, the new birth, – the whole world (including much of the church) is pursuing and attacking her! Do you want to bet what the outcome will be?
Passover is really about the greatest, most dramatic story ever conceived, and told!
It is about the escape from the slavery of sin, the world system, the control of demons, the sacrifice for all sin by our Lord of glory, the rising to newness of holy life, the ultimate defeat of all pursuing enemies, and the glory of all things to come.
The depths of Passover:
Hosea 13:6 “...They were filled and their heart was exalted; therefore they forgot Me. So I will be to them like a lion.”
There is much more to Passover than meets the Gentile, Christian, Roman, Babylon-influenced, chocolate and marshmallow egg-eyes of the church.
Passover is inextricably linked to the original Passover from which the name is derived.
The original Passover was the liberation of the children of Israel by God, through supernatural means from Egyptian slavery.
Stop right here. The children of Israel are the present day Jews, forever linked to the biblical land of Israel (the Promised Land) and the city of Jerusalem. Egypt is always a type of the world - system devoid of God. God’s deliverance of the children of Israel speaks of the supernatural power of God.
So, in today’s terms, Passover is directly linked and associated with Jews and their land, their captivity by the world system, its ways and evils. Today, Passover is directly associated with the very soon - coming supernatural acts of God to deliver His people from the death-wishes of Islam, Europe and much of the world and some of the church.
Passover is forever directly associated with the coming salvation of the Jews in large numbers as the veil of blindness is lifted.
Passover is directly associated with the deaths of billions of people in the tribulation period who reject and pursue the Jews again.
Amazing Passover practises:
One of the Passover practices is to clean out your home of all breads, cakes and everything made with yeast, which is type of sin. Unleavened bread is yeast-free bread. This unleavened bread, matzos, must be spiked and striped when made. This speaks in type of our Messiah being whipped and crucified. (Isaiah 53:5, Matthew 26:26)
The Passover meal must be of lamb, wine, unleavened bread and bitter herbs – all with their amazing types.
Traditionally, three pieces of matzos are used at the meal. The middle one is broken, and one of the two pieces is hidden until after the Passover meal of lamb and the wine has been consumed. This middle broken piece of matzos must be wrapped in a napkin when is hidden, to be sought for after the meal. Do you see the incredible types in this biblical practice?
Amazingly, in the church this has all been replaced with the Easter ham, the pig being a symbol of the antichrist.
Biblically, the pig, swine, or wild boar, is a type of demon spirits, the devil, the antichrist, the base, beastly, unclean, unholy or carnal attributes of mankind.
During Passover a copper tag was put around the neck of the lamb bearing the name of family so that their lamb could be identified when it was sacrificed. After the sacrifice they would say, “It is finished”.
This is symbolic of the “tag” nailed to the cross, saying, “Yeshua of Nazareth, King of the Jews.” He became the Lamb of sacrifice for all that are named believers. The triumphant cry “It is finished” signalled the end of the sacrifice and completion of the work of salvation.
Passover culminates in the Feast of Firstfruits commemorating the resurrection three days and nights after the crucifixion. Easter crams this into two days and nights in defiance of God’s word.
Let my people go:
The Jews cried out to God for deliverance from Egyptian captivity / slavery. Moses cried out “Let my people go”. Pharaoh refused to let them go. God then spoke with Moses telling him that He would strike every Egyptian home with the death of their firstborn.
The Jewish captives were to slay a lamb and take some of the blood to mark their doorposts. They were to eat the sacrificial lamb. The promise from God was that He would pass over and spare the homes marked with the blood of the lamb.
The great Passover led to the great Exodus and the death of those coming after the Jews, now free and heading into their Promised Land. (Jeremiah 16:14-15)
The great cry of Moses to Pharaoh, “Let my people go” is only now reaching its catastrophic crescendo.
The second Exodus from “Egypt” (the world), is on the go now. A nation has been born in a day. Isaiah 66:8 “Who has heard of such a thing, shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once?” A pure language, Hebrew, has been restored. Zephaniah 3:9 “Then I will restore to the peoples a pure language that they may all call on the name of the Lord, to serve Him with one accord.”
Pharaoh and his armies represented by Satan, the BDS Movement, all anti-Semitism, replacement theology in the church, fool politicians of the world and the blind masses, are all in pursuit of the Jews fleeing to their glorious new - found deliverance and soon coming mass salvation.
Passover, version two:
Passover version two is about to go into force.
You can’t separate Passover from the Exodus or the Second Exodus. You can’t separate the deaths of the pursuing Egyptian armies from the Passover. You can’t separate the soon coming slaughter of the modern Jew-haters from Passover. You can’t separate the soon coming deaths of the armies of the world in the modern “Red Sea” of blood, which will be the whole world!
Today the modern church is already “killing” the Jews by hindering their salvation. By refusing to “go to the Jews first” and refusing to “make them jealous”, as commanded in the Bible. They are trying to make the Jew jealous with insane, satanically poisoned chocolate bunny rabbits, marshmallow eggs, ham-eating rituals and other practices of the sex-goddess Ishtar (Easter) all creeping out the Babylonian temple of witchcraft.
Many blind ministers say that they don’t participate in the evils of Babylonian witchcraft; they just use the names and practices of the pagans.
Exodus 23:13 “Be circumspect and make no mention of the name of other gods, nor let it be heard from your mouth.”
Zephaniah 1:4 “...Against the inhabitants of Jerusalem, I will cut off every trace of Baal from this place, the names of the idolatrous priests, with the pagan priests.
Zechariah 13:2 “It shall be in that day, says the Lord of hosts, ‘that I will cut off the names of the idols from the land, and they shall no longer be remembered. I will also cause the prophets and the unclean spirits to depart from the land.”
Judges 10:13-14 “You have forsaken Me and served other gods. Therefore I will deliver you no more. Go and cry to the gods to which you have chosen; let them deliver you in your time of distress.”
2 Kings 17:32-34 “...Priests of the high places sacrificed in the shrines of the high places. They feared the Lord, yet served their own gods according to the rituals of the nations...to this day they continue practicing their former rituals; they do not fear the Lord...”
Jeremiah 10:2 “Do not learn the way of the pagans.” (This goes on to condemn the cutting down of the fir tree and decorating it with gold and silver!)
Isaiah 43:12 There was no foreign god among you; therefore you are My witnesses says the Lord.”
All of these verses above are shocking, but just this one directly above should be the lead verse in the anthem of all ministers!
Easter my friends, is filled with the stench of death, sin and all that is unholy. It has no roots in the Bible – only in the mass murdering popes and leaders of the Catholic church and all their councils, and it's still continuing today.
The attempted murder of Passover by the Easter bunny:
The Easter bunny is dead! Don’t cry for the demon - filled rabbit! The demonic rabbit tried to kill God’s chosen convocation, Passover. Like all God’s enemies the rabbit has been slaughtered. But be careful, its empty, dead shell still has demons of deception all around it.
Smash the Easter bunny; tramp on and squash the Easter egg. Throw the Easter ham into the fire!
When you blindly submit without question to the demon-filled, pagan, occult, traditions of Babylon brought into the church by the Catholics, you are opening yourselves to be led, into ever increasing deception.
Exodus 13:3 “Moses said to the people: ‘Remember this day in which you went out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage, for the strength of the hand of the Lord brought you out of this place. No leavened bread shall be eaten.” This speaks of holiness.
The Catholic sacramental meal incorporates the vile doctrine of transubstantiation and the continuing sacrifice of the cross. There is no “it is finished” in the Catholic-created Easter.
Passover was forbidden by the Catholic church. This has filtered down through the ages, taken on by the reformers and is today entrenched in the church. It has been replaced by Babylonian, pagan Easter, or Ishtar, the name of the goddess of sex.
Here is one of a number of terrible utterances from the Catholic church councils many hundreds of years ago:
(From the Catholic Council: Eusebius, Vita Const., Lib. iii.)
“It was declared to be particularly unworthy for this, the holiest of all festivals, (Easter) to follow the custom of the Jews, who had soiled their hands with the most fearful of crimes, and whose minds were blinded. In rejecting their custom, we may transmit to our descendants the legitimate mode of celebrating Easter… We ought not, therefore, to have anything in common with the Jews, for the Saviour has shown us another way…. we desire, dearest brethren, to separate ourselves from the detestable company of the Jews…”0)
1 Corinthians 10:20-22 “The things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons. You can’t drink of the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you can’t partake of the Lord’s Table and the table of demons. Do we provoke the Lord? Are we stronger than He?”
Ezekiel 44:23 “They shall teach My people the difference between the holy and the unholy and cause them to discern between the clean and the unclean.”
Why is Passover so important?
The Jews are very soon to be saved in large numbers. The whole world will be astounded. Jews and true Christian Gentiles must unite in the truth. They must come together in all that is of the Lord and reject all that is not, especially that which is harmful and a serious abomination to the Jews.
Easter must die fast in the minds, lives and practises of anyone vaguely interested in the truth.
We as believers have a glorious, spectacular, wonderful heritage and future. We are destined to become one in Messiah with the Jewish believer. (Ephesians 2:15)
We are not one new man with Babylon, the Catholics, the Pagans, the occult, Easter bunnies, chocolate eggs symbolising sex with the high priestess of sex – Ishtar (Easter).
Let me make myself very clear. I separate myself and The Prophetic Scroll totally and completely from every single form of, belief or practise of every convocation, ritual and celebration originating in Babylon and the Catholic church.
If you haven’t realised it by now, Passover is the great separation. It makes true biblical Christianity with its Hebraic flavour removed and unreachable for all outside of the cross.
If you have been crucified with Messiah – you have died. You have also been raised to newness of life. This process, death to resurrection is the great purifier and cleanser. It strips away sin, evil and wickedness. So, why then do so many think they can replace the remembrance and celebration of this event with the occult?
►Passover symbolises coming out of Egypt not going into Babylon. There is no Passover in Easter.
Passover was nothing but the deliverance of the Jews by the sprinkling of blood on their doors. If you reject Passover and replace it with Easter, you are in fact proclaiming death to the Jews. The symbolism of Passover includes the sacrifice of a lamb. The symbolism of Easter includes the sacrifice of a pig –a type of the antichrist.
Easter is the sign of Satan in the church. It is the sign (with Christmas) of the world church. Easter and Christmas are a sign to the Jews to keep out, both originating in the place the Jews were held captive – Babylon.
The world will not practice Passover, but will participate in Easter. True believers will not participate in Easter and will identify with Passover.
Remember that this entire issue is supernaturally charged with the Spirit of God and the spirits of demons and devils.
Requirements for Israel’s victory:
If you want to walk in victory and freedom with God’s help and backing, you need to meet His conditions! These verses were written to Israel, but most certainly apply to all believers:
Deuteronomy 23:9 “When the army goes out against your enemies, then keep yourself from every wicked thing.”
Deuteronomy 23:14 “The Lord your God walks in the midst of your camp to deliver you and give your enemies over to you; therefore your camp shall be holy, that He may see no unclean thing among you, and turn away from you.”
Exodus 23:13 “Be circumspect and make no mention of the name of other gods, nor let it be heard from your mouth.”
Participating in any way with or in these evil rituals (or just using the names) will nullify God’s power in you.
My friends we are now on the verge of great spiritual battles. Do you think that a church that is full of paganism will be protected? Just read those verses above again!
A most important summary:
Passover is about the supernatural deliverance from slavery to sin. It is about being taken out of Egypt, which is the world. It is about supernatural cleansing and being made holy and pure through redemption. It is about being made God’s own precious people. It is about going into the Promised Land, the Millennium and heaven.
Passover is also about the Second Exodus, on the go now, the land of Israel, the city, and the people about to be saved, all through the supernatural power of our God, and the destruction of God’s enemies.
Easter is about supernatural captivity by Satan to paganism. It is about a false resurrection in two days instead of three days and nights. It’s about the false Messiah, the antichrist. It is about the attempted forced return of the Jews to captivity in Babylon. Easter is all about evil and wicked supernatural forces of entrapment.
Remember how God destroyed the nations in which the children of Israel were captive? Egypt, Babylon, the Roman Empire and others were all destroyed, even though God’s purposes for the Jews were accomplished.
Bear in mind that Egypt had to deal with massive plagues before the Exodus. Will we now see plagues strike the world (Egypt) ahead of the full completed Second Exodus from the nations of the world? You bet! Just read the Revelation!
By the way there is one frightening extension to this. As God destroyed the enemies of Israel, He will now do the same in the churches of replacement theology and anti-Semitism. Spiritual plagues are coming to many pulpits and pews.
Philippians 3:10 “That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death.”
Our Lord has supplied and given us power to walk right and in holiness before Him, but don’t think that it’s all automatic with no resistance and attacks.
We have before us the choice to know and identify with the great journey from Torah through the law, to grace and the purity of the New Covenant epistles. Or we could choose the paganism of Babylon, Rome and the perversions of the Roman Catholic church, the reformers and the lukewarm modern church in all its sin and evil.
One way is the way of God based on Spirit led truth. The other is the way of man, the world, and the demonic.
I took these pictures in the Okavango, Botswana. I’ve messed around with filters to create the background effects with the baobab tree. It is one tree, but I’ve applied different effects.
Shalom and grow in grace!
Edition 307: April 13th 2016
The information highways:
The information highways:
We are all products of the information highway that we are on.
It was Clark Gable as Rhett in the 1939 classic movie, Gone with the Wind, who was the first to utter a swear word on the big screen. He famously said, “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn.” In those days, that was outrageous and caused a public stir.
I would like to presume that it was this event that signalled the world’s one giant step onto a slippery slope from which it can never recover.
That incident very quickly became acceptable and then the standard. Then the acceptable norm was stretched further and further, as the Bible was removed more and more, and now we’re in a world with no restraint, no biblical values or virtues, all in the name of human rights. But its human rights without God and His rights.
Evil, unchecked, will always advance, speaking great words of tolerance, until it is dominant. Because evil and error are spiritual forces they must always silence opposition to themselves as they gather momentum.
Psalm 74:20-23 “...For the dark places of the earth are full of the habitation of cruelty...The tumult of those who rise up against You, increases continually.”
Subtly, and un-announced, evil of all forms with no restraint is here. The people of the world blindly accept what the media highway decides is normal.
The great tragedy, which everyone will soon wake up to, is that “normal” has been decided for them by Satan, the godless standard setter, who is the god of this world.
Often when I look into the face of a complete stranger I wonder to myself if that person will go to heaven or hell. Every time I look into the face of a CNN, SKY, BBC or other mass media anchor, I know I’m looking at someone destined for hell.
Sometimes I think...if only they knew. If only I could get them to see it!
Yes, some of them might get saved, but none will be secure in salvation if they remain a product of their media industry and bosses.
A very simple daily analogy is this: Almost everywhere there are escalators with one going up next to one going down. The same is evident on every highway – one lane goes one direction, right next to one going the other way.
This is a reflection of everyone’s lives. People are going one way or the other whether they admit it, know it, or not. Its heaven or hell and everyone is on one of those two highways.
Modern science, technology, medicine, education, communications, and just about every aspect of life has really advanced and matured, making our lives so much better and more convenient. But one thing modern man has not been able to improve, is the heart and morality of mankind.
Hearts can be fixed by heart surgeons, but the moral heart of man remains “desperately wicked” and is getting worse fast. (Jeremiah 17:9) The heart of fallen man pumps the sin-filled blood of Adam.
The highway to hell has upon it many, many more people than the highway to heaven.
How do I get onto the right highway?
To get onto the big highway to hell, with the great majority of people on it – do nothing.
To get onto the highway to heaven, you must make the conscious, wilful choice, get saved, which is free and then spend everything you have and are to keep going along the highway to heaven to the wonderful destination.
Don’t get me wrong, yes there is a heavy price to pay, but what you get in return is priceless beyond measure!
Check and guard your influences:
1 Corinthians 15:33 “Do not be deceived, evil company corrupts good habits.”
2 Corinthians 10:12 “We dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves, but they measuring themselves by themselves and comparing themselves among themselves are not wise.”
John 12:43 “They loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.”
The fear or approval of men, friends, peers, or the world is a deadly force. It creeps up on you. A great big bull with a ring through its nose and rope tying it to a pole is going nowhere. The bull has the strength, to break free, but the nose-ring does the job. It’s too sore to pull away, so it stays put.
That’s just like far too many people. They are attached to opinions of man, the ways of the world and the group-speak of the media and they can’t break free because it’s too sore for their ego and pride.
The highway to heaven has you attached by a nose-ring to God and His truth, but the spectacular difference is that it reforms, reconstructs and changes you into a glorious instrument of the living God.
The world’s nose-ring is dirty, evil, sin-filled, wicked and tormenting. God’s nose-ring is a graceful, majestic, pure, instrument of wonderful transformation into holiness.
Proverbs 13:20 “He who walks with wise men shall be wise, but the companion of fools will be destroyed.
Psalm 26:4-5 “I have not sat with idolatrous mortals (people), nor will I go in with hypocrites. I have hated the congregation of evildoers, and will not sit with the wicked.”
John 5:41 “I do not receive honour from men.”
Acts 5:29 “We ought to obey God rather than men.”
Too many measure themselves among and by themselves instead of the entire pure doctrine of the Bible itself.
Psalm 119:160 “The entirety of Your word is truth, and every one of your righteous judgements endures forever.”
Too many are products of their church minister and the church denominations and divisions, none of which are of God. (1Corinthians 1:10-11)
The calling of The Prophetic Scroll:
This publication is an information highway. It’s loved by most readers and hated by some. It is designed to fill many missing gaps in today’s modern ministries. It’s aimed at your head and your heart! It’s designed to stand as a ministry of watching and warning relating to all things prophetic and more as our Lord leads.
Part of the call is to present the Spirit of truth to today’s world and attack the spirit of error.
Part of the call of The Prophetic Scroll is to offer the stability of the truth. It is to present the knowledge of what’s going on and why and how to find your way to victory. It is to dispel and cast out fear with knowledge and understanding of the truth, led by the Spirit of God.
Part of the call is to look for repeating patterns in history, signs, numbers, dates and more all as the Spirit leads. It is to deal effectively with the 27% of the Bible which constitutes prophecy – and much more.
●To be on the cutting edge of all things prophetic as revealed in the scriptures.
●To feed you with this rare food.
●To help you prepare for eternity, not just in terms of salvation, but eternal reward.
●It is to attack, criticise, warn, and rebuke the great errors of our day. It is to come strongly against the works of the devil in many false doctrines. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
●It is to confront and clash with religion, the biggest lie of the age and to warn others to flee.
●It is to say what the Holy Spirit is saying now in these critical days. It is to present the depths of the love of God in biblical goodness and severity.
●It is to be straight, honest and personal with no airy fairy, wishy-washy, half-baked hogwash in these perilous times.
●Above all it is to present the offence of the cross in your face, so that you can only accept it or reject it.
●It is to identify, stand with and walk with other watchmen as led by the Spirit.
1 Chronicles 26:16 (Temple Gatekeepers) “...At the West Gate, on the ascending highway you shall have watchmen opposite watchmen.”
If you have “watchmen opposite watchmen” you fill in the gaps. What one does not see the other will, so you will have full, well-rounded coverage and insights into the things of God.
The call of the Prophetic Scroll to Israel:
This part of the call is to stand with and make known God’s word to Israel in these days. It is to stand with Israel and to come against their enemy, as our own.
Israel is the only nation on earth with a direct clear title deed from God to ownership of the land and city. This is one of the reasons why they are hated with a supernatural hatred.
The deepest and longest hate campaign in the world is against the Jews. It is so because it is also the deepest and longest love story in the world, with soon-coming great and dramatic results!
The central key verses of this section of the calling are:
***Ezekiel 3:17 “I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel, hear My word and give warning for Me.”
***Esther 4:14 “For if you remain silent at this time; deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for a time such as this?”
***Isaiah 62:1 “For Zion’s sake I will not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her righteousness goes forth like brightness and her salvation as a lamp that burns.”
Very soon there will be great danger, terror and judgement upon all who oppose and come against God’s work with Israel today. Almost the whole world will be on the receiving end! Many churches, even some ministers reading these words, are about to be cut off by God ahead of the terror that awaits them.
The future of the BDS Movement and everyone in the camp of replacement theology are in for the greatest shock they will ever have. It will send shudders of shock, through them. It will soon be too late for them to change course.
Isaiah 41:11 “Behold, all those who were incensed against you (Israel) shall be ashamed and disgraced; they shall be nothing, and those who strive with you shall perish.”
Psalm 129:5 “Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.”
What to me is simply outrageous and tragically funny is to hear so many ministers proclaim that they are Bible believers, blessed by God, doing His work while at the same time proclaiming replacement theology or support for the BDS Movement or other anti-Semitic activity.
They are blessed alright – blessed of the devil himself.
What is your life?
Do all roads in your life lead to the cross? Is self, the world and the demonic crucified in your life?
The most important question you can ever ask yourself is the same question God will ask you! “What is your life?”
Psalm 144:3-4 “Lord what is man that You take knowledge of him? Or the son of man that You are mindful of him? Man is like a breath; his days are like a passing shadow.”
Yes our lives are like a breath and passing shadow, but this is in terms of time in the universal, eternal scale of things. We have the opportunity now to create eternal jewels out of “shadows” and pure gold out of “breath”.
Colossians 3:4 “When Messiah who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.”
Why are so many careless and unconcerned about their eternal state and spiritual lives, when truth is actually so exciting, revolutionary and radical? It’s because their leaders, church, peers or close friends are spiritually lukewarm or dead!
When dealing with spiritual issues there is no neutrality.
If you as a minister present a half truth, or half of the gospel, the other half will be filled with presumption and error.
Ephesians 5:15-16 “See that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.”
Proverbs 19:8 “He who gets wisdom loves his own soul; he who keeps (acquires) understanding will find good.”
Proverbs 15:24 “The way of life winds upwards for the wise; that he may turn away from hell below.”
Why it’s all so important today:
It’s always important to have spiritual eyesight and know where you are and what’s going on. But there is one point in time identified in scripture as the most decisive and critical time ever in history and that is now.
We all get the news from our choices of media. The mass media is the only place we can get world news from. Receiving pure hard news from these sources is fine, but we dare not receive into our hearts the opinion-reports.
If you know your Bible well as taught by the Holy Spirit, you will see how deceived mass-media news anchors are. You will have a true measure of all things in your heart and you will not fall for the garbage-opinions of the media.
If you are ignorant of the Bible, you have no measuring standard, and you are in a world of variables where anything goes. You are then gullible and open to being led and formed by the devil-led opinions of the media.
Bear in mind that the mass-media has to keep itself in business and make itself believable. Bear in mind also that the opinions of the media are in fact the opinions of their bosses and their boss-Satan. Don’t underestimate the power of the media.
All forms and sources of input into your heart must be filtered through and measured by the word of God and the living Holy Spirit.
I’ve shared this many times before, here it comes again:
In the ancient Greek the word “hoopocrites” is the origin of the word “hypocrite”. The “hoopocrite” was the person in ancient theatre, who would come onto the stage to introduce the next act. If it was to be a tragedy, he would wear the reverse-smile mask. If a comedy, he would wear the smiley mask. We still have these two masks today representing theatre. But, the real meaning of the word is the person behind the mask is not the same as the mask.
The biblical original word “kosmokratos” means “world power”. It is used to describe Satan.
It is Satan who is the world power, the original “hoopocrite” wearing a smiley mask or a tragedy mask. He is the world power behind the masks. He is not the same as the masks. He is the true hypocrite, the master of camouflage.
Satan is so clearly seen as this world power and “hoopocrite” in the mass media.
One day we will all stand before the living God in judgement, not some swine media boss or reporter. Your eternal destination and your eternal reward-state, depends on which highway you are on.
Bear in mind that truth and error often travel the same highway with error camouflaged as truth.
Truth and error are not matters of opinion. They are not matters of some private interpretation. Have you ever listened to critics of the truth declare that it’s all a matter of interpretation and opinion – fools! Next time you hear that take note that the next thing out of that person’s mouth will be support for the devil.
We are on a narrow highway of and to the beauty of holiness righteousness and purity. Most are on the wide-road, the highway to hell!
***Isaiah 5:14-16 “Sheol (hell) has enlarged itself and opened its mouth beyond measure....”
***Isaiah 14:9-11 “Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming; It stirs up the dead for you, all the chief ones of the earth; it has raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. They all shall speak and say to you: ‘Have you become as weak as us? Your pomp (pride) is brought down to Sheol (hell).’”
The dark, deadly highway:
The verse below (and others like it) speaks of a frightening time that lies ahead:
John 9:4 “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.”
The majority of this will be fulfilled in the tribulation period, but we could see a fair amount beforehand.
What event could prevent the gospel from going out? It could be mass government control. It could be the results of an EMP attack. It could be a result of any number of large geo-political events. Let’s remember that Satan is alive and well and is intensifying his works in these days, because he knows his time is just about up. (Revelation 12:12)
The big bottom line is, are you ready? Do you know our Lord and His word? Do you know how to stand against the devices of the devil?
The true, full, undiluted gospel is the super, super-highway! It is the greatest and most powerful source of all truth, righteousness and holiness. Church doctrine is a highway as well, but the way the gospel is treated, cut, edited and selected is where the problems lie.
My friends, the kingdom of God is so much bigger, larger, deeper and richer than any church and its doctrine.
Of course churches are fine that see themselves as part of this giant enormous kingdom rather than through churchy tunnel vision.
The deadly media:
Today the mass media is a different animal. It is deadly dangerous. It operates in your life in what we call gradualism. Little bit by little bit, it changes your beliefs and values.
►You must know and understand how the spirit of antichrist works. It must come against and replace the true Messiah, and then the door is open for the false Messiah. That’s how replacement theology works. It comes against the truth that God has a wonderful plan for the Jews and then it replaces them with the church. That is also how anti-Semitism works. It comes against God’s plan for Israel and then replaces Israel with the Arabs / Palestinians.
That, my friends is just how the mass media works today. It comes against the truth then fills it in with all their satanic deceit, lies, presumptions and garbage.
Don’t underestimate this...don’t do it!
I’ve said this a dozen time recently. I don’t know exactly what is coming and exactly when, but I have a very strong inner witness, feeling that something big is about to break on the world prophetic front.
I’m not one who goes around saying, “the Lord told me”. But I know when I have this strong inner witness in my heart, not to ignore it. It’s always right.
Now is the time to stand strong. Now is the time to fully surrender all aspects of your lives to our Lord. Don’t wait till the shaking starts. Do it now.
Proverbs 27:19 “...A man’s heart reveals the man.”
I took this picture of the giant Makuku Makete Baobab tree, some 3000 years old in one of our private game reserves. That’s my niece, to offer some perspective. This tree had a 40m circumference! This tree and many others in the area are no more. They died due to local drought.

Edition 306: April 6th 2016
Oceans of peace in a world of violence:
Oceans of peace in a world of violence:
Today there are many major end-time pressures including stress, torment, anguish, misery, suffering, unhappiness, self righteous pride, rebellion against God and many other such things affecting people personally, and it’s getting worse fast!
On a wider level, violence, terrorism, mass murder, torture and the like are reaching shocking depths of depravity and it’s getting worse fast – all as prophesied in the Bible.
Of course there is the other side of the story all around us too. The outpouring of the Spirit of God is at work and on the go. Masses are getting saved especially in the Asian nations and the Middle East.
We must be aware of both. We need to take end-time pressures and make them work for us. We need to be conduits of the Holy Spirit in His work. We must be aware that our lives, when stable and full of God’s fruit are a living testimony to others around us, who are falling apart.
Oceans of internal peace are available and right before us, in this insane world, but there are conditions to be met.
Let’s identify the world of violence firstly:
There are many masses of people out there who love killing, and death. “War is in their hearts.” Islam is particularly a major problem today, because it combines the Qurans instructions to murder, kill and rape with its deceptive religion. It is all coming to its great end-time prophetic fulfilment and conclusion.
Violence and terrorism today:
Violence: Strong’s H 2555 = Chamac (Hamas –derivative). The meanings are: Violence, terrorism, cruelty, damaging, destruction, injustice.
Genesis 6:5-13 “The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. The earth was corrupt before God and the earth was filled with violence...and God said to Noah, ‘The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence...I will destroy them with the earth.”
That’s quite an amazing verse, which at that stage was prophetic. We know the story, it came to pass exactly. But, we are now in the “days of Noah,” version two! Do those verses above in Genesis describe our world today? They do exactly.
Today the word of God has been so universally rejected and cast down by governments, society, educational institutions, entertainment, religious institutions, even commerce and industry.
The effects of casting down God’s word on a national or even an international scale are extremely dramatic to say the least. The single big effect is the casting off of restraint.
Rather than give you my explanations, I’m presenting you now with a whole bunch of Bible verses on this exact subject. Don’t gloss over them, read them, study them and let them speak to you:
Hosea 4:1-3 “There is no truth, or mercy or knowledge of God in the land. By swearing, lying, killing and stealing and committing adultery, they break all restraint, with bloodshed after bloodshed. Therefore the land will mourn and everyone who dwells there will waste away with the beasts of the field, the birds of the air and the fish of the sea.”
Psalm11:5 “The Lord tests the righteous, but the wicked and the one who loves violence, his soul He hates.”
Psalm 73:6 “Pride serves as their necklace; violence covers them like a garment.”
Obadiah 1:10 “For your violence against your brother Jacob (Israel), shame shall cover you and you shall be cut off forever.”
Proverbs 6:17 (Seven things that are an abomination to God.) “A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood.”
Proverbs 28:28 “When the wicked arise, men hide themselves; but when they perish the righteous increase.”
Psalm 9:17 “The wicked shall be turned into hell and all the nations that forget (forsake) God.”
Psalm 68:30 “...Scatter the people who delight in war.”
Psalm 140:1-2 “Deliver me O Lord, from evil men; preserve me from violent men, who plan evil things in their hearts; they continually gather together for war.”
Psalm 55:21 “The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart; his words were softer than oil, but they were drawn swords.”
Isaiah 60:12 “For the nation and kingdom that will not serve You shall perish, and those nations shall be utterly ruined.”
Note the central points of the verses above in bold. You tell me, do they relate to today?
“My glittering sword”
Deuteronomy 32:41-43 “If I sharpen My glittering sword, and My hand takes hold of judgement, I will render vengeance to My enemies, and repay those who hate Me. I will make My arrows drunk with blood, and My sword shall devour flesh...rejoice O Gentiles with His people; for He will avenge the blood of His servants...He will provide atonement for His land and His people.”
These three verses above are most profound and important. Firstly they are a slap in the face for the pacifists. Secondly, they imply spectacular judgement coming from God. Perhaps the full extent of this sort of judgement will only come about in the tribulation period, but there will be birth pangs and forerunners.
Now let’s examine the main message: God speaks here about His people (Jews) and His land (Israel). But note that there is also a group of Gentiles mentioned here who are rejoicing with His people the Jews.
Who is this group of Gentiles? It can only be those who stand with Israel and God’s end-time saving work with the Jews. It can only be true Gentile Christians with a heart for Israel. It can only be Christian Zionists.
Note who God’s enemies are! They are those who hate Him, but would most certainly include those that hate His people and His work with His people and the land! His “enemies” would be the anti-Semites of the world, including those within the church. His enemies would most certainly include those of replacement theology. (If you would like to see much more on the subject of replacement theology, just have a look in the “Index by Subject” link.)
If God has selected and chosen a “glittering sword” to be drenched in the blood of His and His people’s enemies, don’t you think it’s worth getting on the right side of God?
I say again: The vengeance and judgement of God, according to this verse above, is coming not only on His enemies, but on the enemies of His people and land!
If the living God has decided to bring severe judgement into a situation, that makes it an act of righteousness, and in fact holiness. His judgement is always upon sin, evil and wickedness. His judgement always has the end purpose of restoring or establishing holiness.
If you want to know what sin is from God’s perspective – and you should, just look at what God brings vengeance and judgement on.
What an incredible shock awaits so many people!
Isaiah 48:22 “There is no peace, says the Lord, for the wicked.”
Matthew 10:34 “Do not think I came to bring peace on earth, I came to bring a sword.”
Oceans of peace:
So now we see an end-time world of violence, terror and many evils, but in the midst of it all there is another wonderful world available. It’s hidden to most, but it’s there...its right here!
As we get closer to our Lord we encounter His character, His ways and fruits.
There is always something mysterious and majestic about knowing God deeply and intimately.
You can’t draw near to, and experience God without a dramatic encounter with deep peace and all the other fruits that are of Him and in Him. So even in world shaking, and about to be judged, peace can be your lot.
Now have a look at the verses below; they are so comforting and true. These verses must become more than words on a page – they can and must become your lot. Again don’t gloss over them, read and study them.
It’s a good idea to take these verses, and your own and make them regular prayers and proclamations:
Isaiah 48:18 “Oh that you had heeded My commandments! Then your peace would be like a river and your righteousness like the waves of the sea.”
Psalm 147:11-14 “The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him, in those who hope in His mercy...He makes peace in your borders.”
John16:33 “These things I have spoken to you that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
Philippians 4:7-9 “The peace of God which surpasses understanding will guard your hearts and minds through Yeshua Messiah....the things which you leaned and received and heard and saw, these things do, and the God of peace will be with you.”
Romans 8:6 “To be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”
1 Corinthians 14:33 “God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.”
Isaiah 66:12 “Behold I will extend peace to her (Israel) like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream.”
Psalm 4:8 “I will sleep and lie down in peace, for You alone O Lord, make me dwell in safety.”
Job 5:23 “You shall have a covenant with the stones of the field, and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with you.”
Job 22:21 “Acquaint yourself with Him and be at peace. Thereby good (prosperity) will come to you.”
Proverbs 16:7 “When a man’s ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.”
I’ve called this edition “Oceans of peace” simply because oceans are so big and so deep. They have so much to them that is hidden and below the surface.
There is no limit to the experience of God. There are no limits to the depths of joy, peace and stability in Him.
A little known, or spoken of fruit of knowing Him is restraint in your life. Restraint then produces peace. This is the opposite of the fruit of the world. – The exact opposite!
Let me say it again. Knowing God produces restraint and restraint produces peace.
The only way to live in real deep peace is to know the word of the Lord inspired and led by the Spirit.
Looking in the wrong place:
Most people look in the wrong place for peace and relief from stress. They think that money and worldly goods will produce the spiritual goods. Remember that verse above? “In the world you will have tribulation, but in Me you will have peace.”
Too many think that if only they can be successful in the world and have lots of money they will be in peace. I know many who think that, but not one ever has ever encountered the deep peace of God, by looking for it in the world.
The more you fill your life with the ways and things of the world, the more of an idiot you are. You will never ever get free from stress and be in godly peace!
The funny thing is people in stress and torment try to pull us down who live in peace! They want us to become stressed out just like them. If that’s you – listen up. I’ve been there, just where you are. Do you think I don’t know what a lot of rubbish your worldly lives are? Sorry – been there, done that – you’re too late to try and bring me down into your heap of worldly cow dung!
Of course I’m not suggesting that we don’t need the things of the world. We are in the world but must beware of being trapped by it or consumed by it. We must see and know its spirit!
Your life is a testimony to many. With some, you are the only “Bible” they will ever read. Many times people don’t like or won’t believe the verses of the Bible, but they like the fruits they see in you. Often it’s the fruit of peace that they can’t get their heads around, but are attracted to.
Peace comes from fitting your life into the truth. It’s really frustrating trying to make a jigsaw puzzle piece fit that doesn’t. But when the right piece is in place, you rest and go ahh – that’s it. Now I see the picture!
Personally, I gave up looking for peace in this world ages ago. I live in peace and would not exchange it for anything, thank you very much.
Light, darkness, peace and torment:
The Bible talks of the “truth being cast down in the street,” in these last days! (Isaiah 59:14) But what this really means is that the truth will be cast down in people’s hearts. They will reject the truth and its vital life-line and messages for today.
When you cast down the truth you have no direction finder or indicator. You are lost!
You don’t have to believe this, but it’s the truth. In these days very few people know the Bible adequately enough to give them vital direction.
My friends the time is coming soon where spiritual darkness and accompanying torment will be here. It just may come suddenly. You need to know our Lord now. You need to be deeply rooted in Him now, not when the shaking begins.
It’s too late to look for the light when the darkness is here.
Jeremiah 13:15-16 “Hear and give ear; do not be proud, for the Lord has spoken. Give glory to the Lord your God, before He causes darkness, and before your feet stumble on the dark mountains, and while you are looking for the light, He turns it into the shadow of death and makes it dense darkness.”
John 9:4 “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.”
Psalm 74:20-23 “Have respect to the covenant; for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitation of cruelty...The tumult of those who rise up against You increases continually.”
Romans 13:12 “The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armour of light.”
The peace of forgiveness:
Being unforgiven creates a force or weight of stress. Even if you are not aware of it, the pressure is there. You know that when you are out of favour with someone for some reason, it creates stress. But when forgiveness is spoken out or requested, the situation calms down and peace comes along.
The same is true with God. The unsaved are not right with God. They are unforgiven. There is an inner stress that they might not even be aware of. Coming into the experience of forgiveness produces peace with God.
The unforgiven have an inner fear in their lives whether they can identify it or not. Fear, especially enduring fear always produces stress.
Ecclesiastes 10:4 “...Conciliation pacifies great offences.”
Peace in this day of violence:
The world is not getting better and better. The world has shot itself in the foot by kicking God out. It will never be healed. But oceans of peace are available and will get better and better as we grow in His grace and die to the world.
Violence, terror and all manner of horrors will be the world’s adorning. Like that verse says above, “Violence will be the world’s necklace and garment.” The story will be radically different in the Millennium. That will be because Satan will be bound and out of the picture. The world will then be a world of glorious peace.
The principle works now too. You can live in a “Millennium” of peace now, with Satan largely out of your personal picture. We can’t be rid of him now completely, but with the spiritual weapons and armour supplied through the gifts of the Spirit we can go a long way towards living in peace.
This day of violence will soon come to a bitter end, but this day of peace is endless.
Personally, I live in peace. Very little rocks that boat. I don’t allow it to, but what about living in a physical place of peace?
We all need to live somewhere. It’s really not so much about where in the world we live, but where we live with our experience of God. He can and will bring peace into our homes and dwelling places.
For me, I have a number of regular prayers as well other daily prayers as led. One regular prayer is over my home – to keep it safe and in peace. You can have a dwelling place of peace even in a place where war is on the go.
1 Timothy 2:1-2 “I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and the giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all in authority, that we might live a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence .”
The verse above is actually the will of God for governments. It is their duty to set up and create an environment of peace. You can add Romans 13 to this, speaking of the powers of governmental authority, even the death penalty, to preserve a nation of peace under God.
Many world leaders will soon arrive at a destination with a big banner out front saying – “Welcome to hell.”
In the bigger picture there are some places where nothing but trouble is coming because they have capitulated to the enemy and kicked God out insulting His word. (Remember that “glittering sword”)
Europe has not paid yet for its modern-day anti-Semitism and pressure on Israel to capitulate to Islam. God has not turned a blind eye. Europe is about to pay a very heavy price. The “glittering sword” is coming your way Europe!
The current wave of Islamic terror is just the very beginning. Europe can do very little about it, because they have thrown down and thrown out God and His word. In Europe we see an expression of the wicked heart of man, now taking over in the form of violence.
The amazing, incredible thing is that Europe has kicked out the living God and His word and invited in the inherently violent with their evil word of death and destruction. Europe has kicked God out so who do they have as their defender? Only their enemy Satan, whom in their blindness, they have befriended.
Freedom is not freedom if it allows freedom to be destroyed. You can’t have freedom or peace, by welcoming in your worst nightmare!
Colossians 1:20 “He has reconciled all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross.”
At the end of the day, the most violent act of torture, death and bloodshed, the cross of our Messiah was the actual instrument of life and peace. There is no alternative or other way to peace with God.
Without the cross you have the devil in numerous forms of disguise that you need special, supernatural glasses to even see, never mind deal with.
