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.

Edition 297: February 3rd 2016
Why The Prophetic Scroll will never be main-stream:
Why The Prophetic Scroll will never be main-stream:
The Prophetic Scroll will never be mainstream simply because God’s word will never be mainstream!
I recently received an email from a regular reader. He was bemoaning the state of the church. He said that he loved The Prophetic Scroll and saw it as his spiritual “food”. He said that he wished The Prophetic Scroll was more mainstream, so others could also partake.
That got me to thinking about this whole issue of mainstream Christianity.
►If I ever become mainstream will someone please shoot me!
I never planned not to become mainstream. I just write as I am led and inspired and from personal experience.
So, for your benefit I am presenting you with some of the thoughts and revelations that formed my early Christian life. My hope and prayer is that they are a testimony for you. What follows is why The Prophetic Scroll will never be mainstream!
What do we mean by “mainstream”?
There is a mainstream of biblical truth that runs throughout history, which is of the Spirit of the living God. This is the supreme standard, which is holy, unmovable and eternal.
1 Timothy 3:15 “...The house of God, is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth.”
But there is also a “mainstream” within the church that has become infused with tradition and error. This is essentially the “majority consensus”. It is the major beliefs of the church and its leaders and is not necessarily biblical truth at all.
The mainstream church has become a prostitute, selling itself to the gods of the so-called church fathers and the god of this world. Its main biblical characteristic is lukewarmness. In its quest not to offend anyone, it has become a rotten stench in the nostrils of God.
It has become relevant, and compatible to the modern climate of the world, conforming to current evils and sin. Its values and virtues have become variable with the absolutes of doctrine and biblical truth being cast down and in many cases becoming the enemy.
In fact pure biblical truth has become the new enemy to many mainstream churches.
Flexible, feel-good, ear-tickling doctrine is the way of the mainstream church.
Mainstream is what the masses want and demand. Mainstream is what the devil wants and demands.
Mainstream must seek the approval of men. In other words the masses call the shots! After all, that’s what democracy is all about!
Galatians 1:10 “Do I now persuade men or God, or do I seek to please men? For, if I still pleased men, I would not be a servant of Messiah.”
John 12:43 “They loved the praise (Lit= approval) of men more than the praise of God.”
Mainstream must fit in with the world because the world is the essence of real mainstream!
Mainstream has many doctrinal components of truth missing. The biggest is the preaching, teaching and application of the cross.
1 Corinthians 1:18 “The message of the cross is foolishness to them who are perishing, but to us who are being saved, it is the power of God.”
1 Corinthians 2:14 “The natural man does not receive the things of the Sprit of God, for they are foolishness to him, nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
The power to move forward and be led into all truth comes from the cross.
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.”
This will always be the central message and power behind The Prophetic Scroll.
There are very many ministries and churches, mostly spirit-filled, who are still in the dark about God’s plans for Israel in these end times. You can be sure that many of them will turn in favour of Israel as the Spirit of God is poured out more and more.
There is nothing wrong with being ignorant of a biblical truth and then coming into it and going with the flow when the truth is revealed and becomes known.
There is a new wind blowing in some of the spirit-filled churches. Some of them are notorious for going overboard on the prosperity message and self-glorifying, motivational teaching. Some of these are now starting to wake up to the hard school, discipleship message. They are starting to preach end-times and beginning to favour Israel.
Will you stand in the way of these churches re-joining the fold of balanced truth because you had a problem with them in the past? Don’t do it.
The big, irreconcilable and dangerous problem, comes from those ministries, mostly non-spirit filled, who stand in the way of God’s revealed will and directly oppose what He is doing. In most cases these churches have already been handed over to false spirits.
How is your heart?
The ministry of The Prophetic Scroll will always have two sides to it. It is aimed at your head and your heart! As regular readers are aware, this ministry deals with Bible prophecy and your heart before our Lord.
Psalm 39:3 “My heart was hot within me. While I was meditating, the fire burned.”
Again, how is your heart?
Are you on fire for our Lord while, meditating, being in prayer, or just thinking about all things eternal?
Jeremiah 20:9 “...His word was in my heart like a burning fire shut up in my bones; I was weary of holding it back, and I could not.”
Being in and led by the Spirit of truth is the most exciting thing ever. Very seldom do I wake up without a sense of excitement in me for the day ahead.
Is your heart dancing before our Lord? Do you feel that you are “flying” high with our Lord?
For me, the most exciting thing is to see so many of you move forward with our Lord in heart and truth.
An amazing discovery:
Genesis 28:16 “Surely the Lord is in this place and I did not know it.”
Before I was saved, I recall believing I knew more than God. After all, He was not keeping up with the times. His word spoilt my fun. He was such a big-deal, telling people to love Him.
After I was saved I was presented with two options from two church types. The first told me that God thought I was so special and valuable and precious and would never harm me or offend me. He only wanted me to be happy and wealthy, having it all together.
The second path before me was from the church that taught me that I was a big fool, idiot, imbecile, presumptuous arrogant jerk, and a simple-minded moron. They told me that I deserved to go to hell, because I was full of sin and a worthless piece of nothing just like a worm.
I was instantly drawn to this second hard-school, real deal discipleship crowd who pulled the carpet out from under me. It wasn’t long before I rejected most of the me-centred, motivational, self- elevating ministry and went full on with the heavy stuff.
I recall swallowing everything I could on dying daily and taking up my cross. I went overboard on fasting, studying, praying and worshiping this great God whom I thought I had known, but had not even started to know.
Only as I began to die to self, and in proportion to it, did I begin to see the value, the magnificence and glory of our Lord and His kingdom.
Of course I believe in financial prosperity, because it’s all over the Bible. Of course I believe in some of the motivational ministry for the same reason. What I reject out of hand is riches, honour and glory for me, myself and I, – for the un-crucified self to have fun, fun, fun in the world.
Before being filled with the Spirit of God you must be emptied of self. We must go through the soul agony of loss of all our ideas and idols. We must become detached and removed from our self- will and exaltation. We must go to the school of silence and be shut up before God.
Matthew 21:44 “Whomever falls on this stone (Yeshua) will be broken; but on whom it falls will be grinded to powder.”
The message of brokenness is the most powerful of all. It leads to eternal wholeness and holiness before God. It is the message of the cross.
You see, your self-life will be broken. You can do it now or have it done by our Lord when you stand before Him at the “bema” (judgment) seat for rewards or loss of reward. (2 Corinthians 5:10.)
Most Christians today know all about prosperity, but know nothing of soul-poverty in the deeper pursuit of God. We have difficulty paying the price of soul-poverty because we don’t see the value. The local mainstream minister says a Ferrari is valuable – idiot! (Actually I did once have a beautiful Ferrari in my garage. It wasn’t mine. A friend bought a new home and couldn’t get it up the ridge in his driveway, so until it was lowered, my garage was full of red pride)
In your quest for riches and pleasure you will not find God. You’re looking in the place of peril, pride, death, arrogance, evil imaginings, greed, idolatry. The esteem of the world is not worth the effort. The more at home you are in this world, the greater your problem and the greater the work you will have to do to die to it.
In all of our hearts there is a throne of pride and a cross lying on the ground in front of us. You have to get off the throne to pick up the cross.
Some great eternal thoughts:
Ecclesiastes 12:9-11 “The Preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge, yes he pondered and sought out and set in order many proverbs. The preacher sought to find acceptable words; and what was written and upright – words of truth....The words of the wise are like well-driven nails of one Shepherd.”
Jeremiah 6:16 “Stand in the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is, and walk in it.”
The beliefs of modern man are going further and further away from the truth. Because truth is being cast down, there is no restraint in the world. The wicked heart of man is now free to fill the world with evil.
You can choose to be arrested by the truth or by the evil errors of the world. The former will set you free in spirit while the latter will imprison and trap you in bondage.
Beware; the world wants you for itself. It wants you to be like them! They want you to join their “club” and believe everything they believe. The world church is no different.
If you turn away from God and forsake His ways and word, in these days you are on thin, thin ice! You will automatically see things the world’s way. You will come against Israel! You will also become pro-Palestinian. That outrageous statement actually has many roots in the Bible.
Proverbs 28:4 “If you forsake the law / word of God, you will praise the wicked.”
But think about this: What does it mean to “praise the wicked?” The Bible says that the heart of man is “desperately wicked” (Jeremiah 17:9)
It is the heart of man or the self made man and the self-life, outside of the new birth and the cross where evil resides. So, could we say then that if we forsake the word of God (or any part of it), we will elevate and glorify self and self-will and the ways of the world? – Yes absolutely!
Some more great and eternal thoughts:
Isaiah 28:7 “...They err in vision, they stumble in judgement.”
Prophecy, my friends creates true biblically based vision in your life. Without it you are floating around, being tossed around with every wind of doctrine. Prophecy is the anchor of your vision and hope.
Without it, the result is unrestrained sin and wickedness. People judge anything and everything to be okay.
The Spirit of God has been replaced with multitudes of other spirits masquerading as the truth of God.
When truth is of the Spirit you can trust it supremely, even if it hurts at first. You can trust and respect it. If you choose to love this godly truth come hell or high water, it will love you back with an eternal, deep, never-ending love.
►Many people hate the truth, because it knows them! Do you know that the truth is alive and it knows everything about you? The truth is one with the living God. It knows where you went when no one was looking.
It even knows your thoughts of good and evil. You can’t get away from it – ever. Imagine having someone looking over your shoulder all the time. That is what the truth is like. This is why the truth is not liked by so many.
But if your thoughts and resulting actions are right in heart and truth, you can freely love the truth as your best eternal friend.
When you reject the truth you are on thin ice – no you are doomed! You will believe many lies in its place. You will fall for the devil. An inversion takes place and error, lies and deception become part of you.
Some great thoughts on prophecy:
Amos 3:7 “Surely the Lord God does nothing unless He reveals His secrets to His servants, the prophets. A Lion has roared! Who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken!”
Isaiah 45:11 “The Holy One of Israel, his maker says ‘Ask Me of things to come concerning My sons, and the work of My hands.”
John 14:29 “I have told you before it comes about that when it does come to pass you may believe.”
John 16:1 “These things I have spoken to you that you should not be made to stumble.”
If you have not done so, please read those wonderful verses above and take note of the gravity and major importance of what they are saying.
●Firstly, prophecy is scary as revealed in Amos. That is because the world has gone astray and is at enmity with God, which is a lot more scary!
●Secondly, Isaiah says that we can know things to come if we ask and seek, especially related to Israel, which is the context here.
●Thirdly, John reveals that prophecy is a brilliant tool of evangelism causing people to “believe.”
●Lastly, John says that prophecy reveals obstacles and where we should not go.
Bible prophecy is the great “I told you so.”
The desire and objective of The Prophetic Scroll:
We are entering a time of universal darkness, emptiness, barrenness and dryness. But there are those who hunger and thirst for the purity, holiness and the righteousness of God. My great desire is to see you advance with our Lord.
Many want to be saved but won’t surrender fully. They end up as twilight Christians half in the shadows. Their sick religion offers plenty and demands nothing. They can’t advance with our Lord. The truth they have soon erodes away as it must. How can you compromise with a cross? They have not gone all the way with the Lord. They have moved forward until they reach their cross lying in front of them!
You’ve heard that the gospel is good news. No it isn’t!
It is very bad news for the unrepentant sinner. It is bad news for me, myself and I and for my ego. It is bad news for my connection and relationship with the world. We are eternal pessimists and the greatest optimists. For it all to become the greatest news ever we must take up our cross, deny ourselves, hate our lives in the world, then the triumphant resurrection works its wonders in us.
Do yourself a favour, put to death and mercilessly kill your reason, logic and knowledge. Let the severe sword of the Spirit of God help you in this great exchange of your life for His.
An incredible, powerful, majestic exchange will begin to take place. You will see that your clever head knowledge was the essence of stupidity and now the very knowledge, understanding and wisdom of the living God will begin to fill you.
Our Lord has won the most incredible victory for us, but He will never force it on anyone. You can live for the devil if you choose, with the Lord’s victory lying on the ground under your feet.
Too many have a convenient Messiah, as significant as washing powder. They have a sponsor -Messiah that they can put away when necessary and call on when needed.
So, is the gospel good news? Absolutely no and absolutely yes!
Some more desires and objective of The Prophetic Scroll:
We are entering a time when a great many will come seeking our Lord and His truth. Many churches will become part of this great, exciting drama as they return from their excesses into the fullness of truth.
As revealed in prophecy, many enemies including large numbers from churches forsaken by the Holy Spirit will attack truth-seekers and those of the truth.
The fence is rising, the divide is becoming greater. Soon it will become an impassable gulf! There are characteristics evident in the lives of those on both sides of the fence.
On the one side there are people not satisfied with what the world can offer them. They desperately want to go deeper with our Lord – and they will!
Then there are the superficial ones with a need for entertainment. They are spiritually bankrupt. They are parasites on the world with the saving blood of Messiah in them, but they are sitting there sucking up the blood of the devil!
Satan hates the true, real Christian because He is now separated from his grip and control. The believer is now a member of the family of the living God and he was once in that family of Satan. He hates us because we were once his bond-slave and we’ve been freed to become bond-slaves of our Lord.
Some keys: Set your heart’s desire on holiness rather than happiness. Seek ways, means and opportunities to take up your cross daily. Make eternity judgements rather than time judgements.
If you are a scholar and not a seer, you have missed it totally. Don’t seek head knowledge primarily. Seek to see.
Are you in a state of being, just existing from day to day or are you in a state of becoming and are you in a radical, revolutionary, exciting transformation?
The winds of the world are blowing towards hell at an ever increasing rate. Soon they will be the worst hurricane ever. You don’t need to do anything to go with these winds, just lift your feet and do nothing. You will arrive at your dreaded, terrible destination. A yacht must set its sail in a particular determined manner to track and make headway into the wind.
Is your Lord a Lion and a Lamb? Is He wonderful and terrible?
Self and sin is the hazy veil that hides the face of God. Too many have a blurred fog for truth and doctrine because they are too lazy or demon filled to be radical with their lives. You can’t bring light and darkness together.
John 1:23 “This is the voice of one crying in the wilderness; make strait the way of the Lord”.
I took this picture in the Drakensberg Mountains. This is the Cathedral Peak with one lone tree on the way up.
Shalom and grow in grace!

Implications of the lifting veil!
Implications of the lifting veil!
Jeremiah 31:3-4 “I have loved you (Israel) with an everlasting love; therefore with loving-kindness I have drawn you in. Again I will build you and you shall be rebuilt, O virgin Israel! You shall again be adorned with your tambourines and go forth and dance with those who rejoice.”
Romans 11:12-15 “If their fall (Jews) is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness!...If by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and save some of them. For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?
In the previous two editions I looked at the reason and objections the Jews have to Yeshua as their Messiah. In fact there are no biblically sound reasons at all. The Bible reveals that the Jews will soon see and recognise their Messiah as the veil is lifted. Then I looked at the coming destruction of Israel’s arch-enemy, Islam, from a biblical point of view. All of this leads to the great climax of the age as God Himself lifts the veil of spiritual blindness upon the Jews, leading to their mass recognition of their Jewish Messiah – Yeshua.
But there are many implications of this for the Jews, for the church and for the unsaved world.
You can’t say that you love the Lord or love God, if you don’t love His word and His choices. If you think you do – you are great big blind liar!
This wonderful and frightening drama:
As the veil of spiritual blindness lifts, the Jews will begin to see their Messiah. But at the same time Satan knows that this spells his own imminent, total, eternal, defeat. So of course he goes into high gear to try and stop this from happening, and spread confusion around the whole issue.
This is why Islam is about to become even more deadly than it has been. This is where the age-old attack of the spirits of Babylon, Rome, Hitler and now Islam all arise to try to defeat God’s purposes.
Those of us who have become privileged of God, and so extremely fortunate to know Him and His word, know that it will all work out just as He said.
There are many things you can do to stand with and help Israel as her time of great reckoning gets closer.
You can ignore it all and go with the blind crowd or you can do something.
●You can stand against the UN. Take the opposite view even if it’s only in prayer. After all, the UN does not speak for you. They speak against Israel on everything all the time.
●You can take a stand against the churches attacking Israel economically in the BDS movement. If you are part of those churches get out now, run, and flee from them. They have cursed themselves to judgement and destruction.
The veil of spiritual blindness is about to be whipped away. Many wonderful prophetic things will happen fast now.
Zechariah 3:9 “...I will remove the iniquity of that land (Israel) in one day.”
Isaiah 49:19 “For your waste and desolate places (land of Israel) and the land of your destruction, will even now be too small for the inhabitants.”
Isaiah 10:21 “The remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, to the mighty God.”
Isaiah 45:17 “Israel shall be saved by the Lord with an everlasting salvation...”
Hosea 6:1-2 “Come let us return to the Lord; for He has torn us, but He will heal us; He has stricken us but He will bind us up. After two days He will revive us; on the third day He will raise us up, that we may live in His sight.” (2 Peter 3:8 “A day with the Lord is as a thousand years.)
Implications of the lifting veil for Israel
2 Corinthians 3:14-16 “Their (Jews) minds were hardened. Until this day, the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Covenant, because the veil is taken away in the Messiah. Even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. When one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.”
In the verse above we see how the veil is taken away. My Jewish friends, please keep in mind that your Messiah-rejecting Rabbis will keep the veil of blindness over you. It is only in Messiah that the veil is lifted.
You need a radical change – it is coming!
Isaiah 5:13 “My people have gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge (of God).”
Jeremiah 3:14-15 “Return, O backsliding children, says the Lord; for I am married to you. I will take you one from a city and two from a family and I will bring you to Zion and I will give you shepherds according to My heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding.”
Israel you will be getting “new shepherds” according to the verse above. You will see your Jewish Messiah – Yeshua. But don’t accept new shepherds of Babylon!
Isaiah 48:20 “Go forth, get out of Babylon, flee from the Chaldeans, ‘The Lord has redeemed His servant Jacob (Israel).”
Who are the shepherds of Babylon? They are the ministers of the churches formed and moulded by the Catholic church. They are full of pagan Babylonian practises, convocations and traditions.
An easy way to identify a Babylonian church or ministry is in its rejection of the biblical convocations like the Feasts of the Lord and the replacement of them with occult convocations like Christmas and Easter.
Here is a message to the Jews: The Catholic church is your enemy. They do not love you, they want you to obey their laws and do their works and give them your money. They want to control you! They hate you. They do not want you to honour your God and your Hebraic traditions and convocations. They want you to accept their abominations. Don’t do it.
Big changes will and must come to you, Jewish friends. Your Messiah will show you and lead you, but you must be open to change.
Jeremiah 3:16-18 It shall come to pass when you are multiplied and increased in the land in those days, says the Lord, that they will say no more, ‘The Ark of the covenant of the Lord’, it shall not come to mind, nor shall they remember it, nor shall they visit it, nor shall it be made anymore. Jerusalem shall be called, the Throne of the Lord...In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north...”
Isaiah 62:2-4 “The Gentiles shall see your righteousness and all kings your glory. And you shall be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord will name...You shall be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord...You shall no longer be termed forsaken...You shall be called Hephzibath and your land Beulah, for the Lord delights in you.”
The name “Hephzibath” is an ancient Hebrew name meaning: “My delight is in her.” The name “Beulah” means: “The land shall be married.”
Hosea 14:4-6 “I will heal their backslidings, I will love them freely, for My anger has turned away from them. I will be like the dew to Israel; He shall grow like a lily...His beauty shall be like an olive tree...”
Isaiah 54:14 “In righteousness, you shall be established.”
What should the Jews do as the veil is lifted?
Your sins led you into Babylonian captivity for 70 years, but don’t feel alone. The church, due to her sins, was led into Babylonian captivity for much longer and in many cases is still trapped right there. They can’t get out because they can’t see their captivity, and they don’t have the power to escape.
Jeremiah 4:1 “If you return O Israel, says the Lord, return to Me; and if you will put away your abominations out of My sight, then you shall not be moved.”
Jeremiah 4:14 “O Jerusalem, wash your heart from wickedness, that you may be saved. How long shall your evil thoughts lodge within you?”
Keeping the laws of the Rabbis, Mohammed, or the popes brings a curse not a blessing. You love your own child don’t you? He will obey you because he loves you, not because he has to by law.
It is only the living God who really loves you, and all those born into His family by birth.
Matthew 23:39 “I say to you, you shall see Me no more till you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’”
My Jewish friends, the time is approaching fast when you say, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.” Then your eyes will open and you will see your Messiah whom you pierced.
Implications of the lifting veil for the church:
The verses below are indeed dramatic and revolutionary. Few people know they exist or what they actually say. They are not addressed to unbelievers. They are addressed to people who have “forsaken the Lord”, implying that they once had the Lord. They are referring to people who once could “hear the word of the Lord.”
They are referring to those who have now chosen what God hates. These verses fit perfectly with those within the dead churches and others, who now come against God’s plans for Israel. These are the churches of replacement theology!
***Isaiah 65:11-12 “You are those who forsake the Lord, who forget My holy mountain (Israel)...therefore I will number you for the sword and you shall all bow down to the slaughter; because when I called, you did not answer, when I spoke you did not hear, but did evil before My eyes and chose that in which I do not delight.”
***Isaiah 65:13-14 “Behold, My servants shall rejoice, but you shall be ashamed; behold, My servants shall sing for joy of heart, but you shall cry for sorrow of heart, and wail for grief of spirit.”
***Isaiah 65:15-16 “You shall leave your name as a curse to My people (Jews), for the Lord God will slay you, and call His servants by another name....He shall bless himself in the God of truth.”
Isaiah 62:2-4 “The Gentiles shall see your righteousness (Jews) and all kings your glory. And you shall be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord will name...You shall be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord...You shall no longer be termed forsaken...You shall be called Hephzibath and your land Beulah, for the Lord delights in you.”
The name “Hephzibath” is an ancient Hebrew name meaning: “My delight is in her.” The name “Beulah” means: “The land shall be married.”
My friends, these verses alone (above) should forever silence the evil ministries of today that come against God’s plans for Israel and who support the Palestinian cause above God’s plans.
If you want to mess with God’s truth – let it be upon your own head. It will anyway, and you will regret it forever.
Churches and Christians in the anti-Israel camp and the camp of replacement theology, you still have a chance to repent, although the damage you are causing is becoming more severe and satanically charged. Change your tune now and fast, or reap what’s coming, but don’t say you were not warned!
I warn, warn, warn, warn you now.
Romans 11:21-22 “If God did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either. Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God; on those who fell, severity; but towards you goodness; if you continue in His goodness, otherwise you also will be cut off.” (Like Israel was cut off from their own olive tree.)
Genesis 12:3 “I will bless those who bless you (Israel), and I will curse him who curses you.”
Isaiah 60:14 “Those who afflicted you shall come bowing to you, and those who despised you, shall fall prostrate at the soles of your feet; and they shall call you, ‘the city of the Lord, Zion the Holy One of Israel.”
Ezekiel 35:13-14 “With your mouth you have boasted against Me and multiplied your words against Me and I have heard them. Thus says the Lord God, the whole earth will rejoice when I make you desolate.” (This staggering verse is addressed to the Arab people of today and their friends who come against God’s plans.)
Psalm 129:5 “Let them all be confounded and turned back who hate Zion.”
Psalm 68:1 “Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: Let them that hate Him flee before Him.”
Israel-attacking, hate filled churches, here is the word of the Lord complied from the verses above for you:
You are already and will be: Scattered, confounded, cut off, made desolate, not spared, God’s severity is upon you, you are cursed.
It’s not my business to tell anyone what church to go to or not to. I never do that. I put out warnings and leave things to you. We are commanded to examine ourselves to see if we are in the faith. We are commanded not to compare ourselves amongst ourselves, but against the full doctrine of Messiah. We are not to entertain any false doctrine, but avoid it. We are to judge with spiritual judgement.
That all said, I warn you against all churches of replacement theology (including all churches who support and participate in the BDS Movement). They are on such incredibly thin ice. They are going down. They will be handed over to powerful spiritual forces of deception and evil. Get out now!
***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.”
If all this Israel truth is new to you or you haven’t been taught any of it, you can and must ask our Lord to open your eyes and give you a love for Israel and the Jews. It will come just like a new birth.
Implications of the lifting veil for the nations of the world;
Isaiah 60:12 “For the nation and kingdom which will not serve you (Israel in this context) shall perish, and those nations shall be utterly ruined.”
Zechariah 2:8 “He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you (Israel); for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye.”
The lifting of the veil of spiritual blindness upon the Jews will absolutely infuriate the god of this world, Satan and his hosts. The full intensity of this takes place throughout the seven year tribulation period, with forerunners now.
The unsaved world will have no idea what’s actually going on in the spirit realm, and won’t be able to see the veil of spiritual blindness being lifted from the Jews by God. They will however fulfil Satan’s word, will and plan, by coming against it all.
All the nations of the world will come against Israel in the days of the lifting veil because it is the final proof of all Bible prophecy and essentially separates the saved Jews from the world forever. It is the final great failure of the world and its god.
We see powerful repeating patterns from the Bible.
Perhaps the most powerful story is that of Pharaoh releasing the Jews from Egypt to go to the Promised Land, only to pursue them to kill them, and getting himself and his army killed in the process!
All the Roman Emperors tried to wipe out the Jews as did Hitler, only to have themselves defeated. The Roman Catholic church tried to wipe out the Jews in successive Inquisitions, but they have not been destroyed yet. They await a very great and final destruction as part of God’s plan revealed in the Revelation. The Arabs tried to destroy Israel in six successive wars, only for themselves to be defeated each time.
We will soon see an Arab confederacy try to destroy Israel (Psalm 83). They will be destroyed. We will soon see the nations of the north (Gog and Magog) with many allies try to destroy Israel. They will all ultimately be destroyed.
The unrighteous and the unsaved and even the saved but rebellious will not see any of the signs of these things coming. As always they are walking around like blind men and women, not knowing where they are going or what lies ahead of them.
“Sing for joy of heart, or cry with sorrow of heart, and wail for grief of spirit.”
Church, this is the choice before you. You can be a singing friend of God’s choice and plan or reject it. If you reject it, you have chosen sorrow and grief. It is coming your way. It will be on your doorstep soon.
Do you think that statement above is true, or just a few empty words? Have you noticed the choice of Europe? Have you noticed how they have rejected God’s plans for the Jews for a long time now and chosen to let in hordes of Quran-based Muslim migrants?
Have you noticed that Europe must now live with their choices and welcome in rape and murder? Have you noticed that Europe is on the edge of “sorrow of heart and grief of spirit?” Have you noticed how Europe is making the situation worse daily?
Israel, repent and open your eyes. In all sincerity repent. As you do, the immensely powerful spirit of forgiveness will flood into your lives. The power of God will be in you to help you.
You, Jews, will soon be singing for joy of heart to your God and many Christians who love our mutual Jewish Messiah will be rejoicing with you. It will all be like life from the dead!
Both remnant Jew, soon to be saved, and Christian bless yourselves in the God of truth!
Home away from home! This is my rather basic, simple home in the bush. It has no running hot or cold water, no electricity, no toilet (except a spade) no air conditioning, no sound proofing, no furniture, no carpets, no kitchen sink, or no shower. But it has elephants, lions, leopards, cheetahs, buffalos, hyenas, thousands of birds and insects that make a symphony of sound better than any orchestra.

Edition 295: January 20th 2016
Shocking Obadiah! (The destruction of Islam.)
This edition is essentially about the coming fall and destruction of Islam. I’ve used the prophet Obadiah as the base, because it’s just so clear and unambiguous. But there are many other parallel verses which I’ve looked into as well.
Islam, the religion only came about in 600AD, long after the Bible was written, but we can still identify the religion surprisingly clearly in the Bible.
The people I will identify as the modern Muslims are essentially derived from the various Arab peoples, although not exclusively, and the father of the Arab nations, Abraham.
The Quran and it’s hatred of Israel and the Jews:
In numerous verses, the Quran calls for the killing of Jews and Christians in the cruelest methods.
The Hamas Charter declares: “We will destroy Israel.” The charter is based on the tenants of Islam.
As we will see, the truth is the exact opposite. It is Israel who will destroy Islam!
Muslims through the ages have hated Israel and the Jews and sought to kill them. Every war fought by Israel since the War of Independence has been against numbers of attacking Arab, Muslim nations, and Israel has won all of them.
Most people are not aware that the Quran specifically refers to the return of the Jews to the land of Israel before the last judgement! Furthermore, the Quran itself recognises the land of Israel as a Jewish state! Look it up if you don’t believe me.
Islam is the king and champion of anti-Semitism and has been since its birth.
But more than this is Islam’s quest for world domination and control. We have all heard stupid, ignorant politicians and other deceived academics and wolf-church leaders say that “Islam is a religion of peace.” Well, what Islam believes by “peace” is the absences of resistance to Islamic domination! Then Islam will be free to control and dominate in any way it desires.
Control and domination is what they mean by peace!
God has a different view. The big problem with God is that He has not kept quiet and listened to these brilliant all-knowing, so-intelligent politicians. He has not listened to CNN, SKY, the BBC and others. Does God think He is God or something?
So, yes of course Islam has its eyes set on the destruction of Israel and the Jews as well as their own occupation of the entire land, and the world.
Islam believes that “everywhere they put their feet, they will rule” This is why we are seeing the invasion of Quran-based, Islamic migrants throughout Europe and into the west. They are warriors for Islam in waiting!
Although there are terror events in Israel, because of all the vigilance, she is seen as a safer place than Europe, the US and many other nations.
Islam to be defeated by Israel:
At the end of the day, it will come down to a giant clash between the Book of Truth and the book of error. These two ancient enemies will clash with one being forever destroyed and the other standing securely forever.
But before Islam meets its match, our Lord will use it as one of His “hunters” to drive the Jews back to their land. (See Edition 288 entitled “Transition from Fishermen to Hunters.”)
Islam will be defeated by Israel and not the US or Europe or any other nation. It will be defeated when the savagery of the Quran is fully exposed and presented. This is when it calls its believers to violence 109 times against our believers. Many of these calls are for beheading, dismembering, crucifixion and other forms of torture.
The shocking message of Obadiah! (It is only one chapter.)
Obadiah opens with a discourse on the coming judgement of Edom. “I will make you small” The pride of your heart has deceived you.”
The people called “Edom” and “Esau” are the people who today would be Arabs of the religion of Islam.
Verse 5: “Oh how you will be cut off, how Esau will be searched out.”
Verse 8: “I will destroy the wise men of Edom and them from the mountains of Edom.”
Verse 10: “For your violence against your brother Jacob (Israel), shame shall cover you and you shall be cut off forever. In the day that you stood on the other side (territories) when foreigners entered his gates and cast lots for Jerusalem, even you were one of them.”
Verse 12: “You should not have gazed (Lit=gloated) over your brother Jacob’s (Israel) day, in the day of his captivity, nor should you have rejoiced over the children of Judah, in the day of their destruction; nor should you have spoken proudly in the day of distress (tribulation).
Verse 13: “You should not have entered the gate of My people (Jews) in the day of their calamity (tribulation). Indeed you should not have gazed on their affliction in the day of their calamity (tribulation), nor laid hands on their substance in the day of their calamity (tribulation.)
Verse 15: “For the day of the Lord is near; as you have done, it shall be done to you. Your reprisal shall return upon your own head.”
Verse 17: “But on Mount Zion there shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; the house of Jacob (Israel) shall possess their possessions.
Verse 18: “The house of Jacob shall be a fire and the house of Joseph a flame; but the house of Esau shall be stubble...and no survivor shall remain of the house of Esau.”
Verse 20: “The captives of this host of the children of Israel shall possess the land of the Canannites.
Verse 21: “Then saviours shall come to Mount Zion to judge the mountains of Esau, and the kingdoms shall be the Lord’s.”
It is clear to see that in this discourse the Muslim peoples are destroyed by Israel.
Note that these people and their religion will be “cut off forever.” Note that it is Israel and no other nation who causes this military defeat.
Note also that the final destruction occurs in the time of Israel’s distress, or the tribulation period. We will see a run up to this beforehand though.
Now let’ look more deeply into this incredible drama.
Identifying the religion of Islam from the Bible:
In all the Bible verses I am using here and many others; it is the descendants of Ishmael who became the modern Arab peoples.
In the table above, the bottom row also includes the Palestinians. This bottom row is also where we find Islam.
The great majority of the people groups surrounding Israel are Muslims.
The Islamic crescent moon and star symbol is the identical symbol of ancient Baal worship.
The image composite above is made up of various depictions of Baal, all from antiquity. Each has a crescent moon and star. From this alone we see the link between Baal and Islam. But numerous other practises and traditions also confirm the link.
It can be demonstrated that Allah is in fact Baal. There is a huge amount of excellent study material on this easily available by a simple search.
Islam is Baal worship today. The moon god is connected to Baal worship. The god Molech is also connected to Baal.
There is much evidence that the Moabites (Arabs) worshipped Baal. In fact, the children of Israel infuriated God by also getting involved in Baal worship.
Numbers 25:3 “So, Israel was joined to Baal of Peor and the anger of the Lord was aroused against Israel.”
There are also many connections between Baal worship and the Catholic church.
One of the Hebrew words for Lucifer is “Heylel” (Strong’s - H 1966). The term Heylel Ben Shachar means “Lucifer son of the dawn.” (Isaiah 14:12) The word “Hilal” is an ancient Arabic word which means “crescent moon.” A derivative, the word “Halal” is found on all Islamic food products to identify them. It is closely associated in origins with the crescent moon and Lucifer.
Muslims believe that the black Kaaba stone in Mecca to which they all bow, will one day speak and give wisdom to all who touch it. They believe it is the remnants of a star which fell from heaven at the feat of Adam. Isaiah 14:12 says it was Lucifer who fell from heaven.
When Israel went into the Promised Land the command of God was for them to destroy Baal worship and all other forms of paganism in the land which they were to dispossess. They only partially fulfilled God’s command and now they are haunted by the results of disobedience.
►Numbers 33:50-55 Instructions for the conquest of Canaan: “Moses, speak to the children of Israel and say to them: When you have crossed the Jordan into the land of Canaan, then you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, destroy all their engraved stones, destroy all their moulded images and demolish all their high places...but if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then it shall be that those who you let remain, shall be irritants in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they shall harass you in the land where you dwell.
Exodus 34:11-14 “Observe what I command you this day. Behold I am driving out from before you the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite. Take heed to yourself, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you are going, lest it be a snare in your midst. You shall destroy their altars, break their sacred pillars and cut down their wooden images, for you shall worship no other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous is a jealous God.”
But Israel is about to enter the new Promised Land! This is the Promised Land of spiritual awakening and salvation. As this occurs, will Israel wipe out Baal worship, now manifesting as Islam as originally commanded? Yes they will!
By the way, who was in the land first? This is a childish argument with no substance to it. But let’s look at it anyway.
When the children of Israel were commanded to enter the Promised Land, they were to disposes it from various people groups, mostly those of the descendants of Ishmael (Arabs) who were there already, as shown in the verses above. So does the land belong to them and the religion of Islam?
Well actually, God was there first.
Ezekiel 35:5-9 “Because you (modern Arabs)have an ancient hatred, and have shed the blood of the children of Israel by the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, when their iniquity came to an end, therefore as I live says the Lord God. I will prepare you for blood and blood will pursue you...I will make you perpetually desolate, because you have said, ‘These two nations Israel and Judah shall be mine and we will possess them, although the Lord was there.’”
So that’s the end of that argument. God owns the land and He gave it the children of Israel as an eternal inheritance and not to the Arab nations as we see in this verse below:
Genesis 17:18-21 “Abraham said to God, ‘O that Ishmael might live before You!’ Then God said: “No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant and with his descendant after him.
God’s soon coming Holocaust, His final solution!
How does that headline make you feel? Does it fit in with your perceptions of God? Perhaps you need to modify your ideas. Do you know that God will reverse the whole horror story of the Nazi Holocaust? The ovens will be opened for Islam? I must say, just the thought gives me the shivers.
The word “Holocaust” literally means, “Great sacrifice by fire!”
►Psalm 21:8-12 “Your hand, (God) will find all Your enemies; Your right hand will find those who hate You. You shall make them as a fiery oven in the time of Your anger; The Lord shall swallow them up in His wrath, and the fire shall devour them. Their offspring You shall destroy from the earth, and their descendants from among the sons of men. For they intended evil against You; they devised a plot that they were not able to perform. Therefore You will make them turn their backs; You will make ready Your arrows on Your string towards their faces.”
Amos 1:6-7 “I will send fire on the walls of Gaza...and the remnants of the Philistines (Palestinians today) shall perish.”
Whether these fires above are literal or not, do you see that it’s not such a good idea to reject God’s word and listen to the word of Obama, Cameron, the European politicians, the leaders of the Muslim nations, university academics, many churches and celebrities?
The destruction of the religion of Islam:
God’s command to cleanse the land of Israel of false gods and false religion still stands, and we see in prophecy that it will finally come about.
Please understand that moderate Islam is still based on the Quran and when the pressure is on all Islam will become violent.
Because of the extreme hatred and violence of the Quran, and the apocalyptic destruction promised on all infidels, Islam is totally incompatible with the West. It will never integrate successfully, besides that, Israel, with God’s help will destroy it at the right time.
Now, we have identified Baal worship with Islam. Have a look at the following incredible verses.
►Zephaniah 1:4-5 “...Against the inhabitants of Jerusalem, I will cut off every trace of Baal (modern Islam)from this place, the names of the idolatrous priests, with the pagan priests– those who worship the stars of heaven on the housetops; those who worship and swear oaths to the Lord, but who also swear by Milcom (Lit=Molech).
Here’s the drama! Who is “Milcom”? This is the name for an Ammonite god, the same as the god Molech, linked today to Allah.
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.”
1 Kings 18:40 “Elijah said to them, ‘seize the prophets of Baal! Do not let one of them escape!’ So they seized them and Elijah brought them down to the Brook of Kishon and executed them there.”
In these verses above we see the destruction of Islam. We know also that the Bible says that Israel is the Lord’s “battle-axe and weapons of war” (Jeremiah 51:20.)
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.”
What is the “Sceptre of wickedness?”
Psalm 125:3 “The sceptre of wickedness (Islam) shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous, lest the righteous reach out their hands to iniquity.”
Most commentators agree that this sceptre was Ball worship and today is nothing but Islam. The world renowned Christian Zionist, the late Derek Prince did numerous teachings identifying the sceptre as Islam.
In fact there is no other suitable candidate anyway.
Zechariah 3:9 “...I will remove the iniquity of that land (Israel) in one day.” (This refers to Israel’s blindness, but, by extension can also include the iniquity which is Islam.)
Other incredible verses:
►Ezekiel 35:12-14 “...I have heard all your blasphemies which you have spoken against the mountains of Israel, saying, ‘They are desolate; they are given to us to consume.’ Thus with your mouth you have boasted against Me and multiplied your words against Me. ‘I have heard them.’ Thus says the Lord God; the whole earth will rejoice when I make you desolate.’
Now here’s the all important question. Who is the whole world rejoicing at? Whose desolation is being celebrated by the whole world?
There is only one answer. It is the Quran-believing Islamists, including the Palestinians. It is ISIS, it is all the anti-Israel Muslims of the world. The chapter is addressed to the people of Mount Sier, the Edomites, who are our modern day Muslim Arabs.
►Ezekiel 36:5, 8, 12, 15 “Surely I have spoken in My burning jealousy against the nations and against all Edom (Arabs), who gave My land to themselves as a possession, with whole-hearted joy and spiteful minds in order to plunder the country...But you O mountains of Israel, you shall shoot forth your branches and yield your fruit to my people Israel, for they are about to come home....Yes I will cause men to walk on you, My people Israel (will walk on you, mountains) they shall take possession of you, and you shall be their inheritance...Nor will I let you hear the taunts of the nations anymore, nor bear the reproach of the peoples anymore, nor shall you cause your nation to stumble anymore, says the Lord God.”
How accurate are these verses above in today’s terms! Who gives God’s land to themselves by dividing it?
Joel 3:18-20 “It shall come to pass in that day that the mountains shall drip with new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and the brooks of Judah shall be flooded with water...Egypt shall be a desolation and Edom a desolate wilderness because of violence (Lit= Hamas) against the people of Judah, for they (Edom / Arabs) have shed innocent blood in their land. But Judah shall abide forever and Jerusalem from generation to generation.”
The word “violence” in the verse above is the original word “hamas”. Isn’t it interesting that this verse talks of the shedding of innocent blood. This is the hallmark of Islam and the terror group Hamas.
Psalm 129:5 “Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.”
Do you think the coming destruction of Islam is impossible?
Don’t mess with God. He birthed Israel in a day. He will destroy the Catholic church in a flash. He will see to it that Damascus is totally destroyed in a day (Isaiah 17) Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed in an hour. Babylon was destroyed in a day as was Jericho.
All anti-Semitism is based on the hatred of God and His word. It is based on the pride of putting down God’s choice and exalting your own choice, which automatically becomes the devil’s choice.
All anti-Semites of all forms will be destroyed before or at the Second Coming.
If you want to do God a favour, yourself a favour, Israel a favour, get in line with God’s will and His word.
The coming salvation of numerous Arabs:
Interestingly many Muslims are coming to our Lord even now. They are not coming to salvation with Islam in their hearts! They are not being born-again as Muslims. They are being born-again as true Christians.
Many of them are seriously sick and tired of Islam. Many are seeking truth. The thing is that they are unanimously forsaking the Quran. This is obviously required in the repentance scheme of things for true deliverance.
Isaiah 19:24-25 “In that day Israel will be one of three with Egypt and Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land, whom the Lord of hosts shall bless saying, ‘Blessed is Egypt My people, and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel, My inheritance.”
This will take place in the tribulation period, but we are already seeing the start of it.
This is an amazing testimony of many Muslims coming to salvation. Click HERE
Don’t you think it’s interesting that Satan has been trying to destroy God’s plan for the Jews since their beginning and he has failed every time. Guess what the outcome of Islam’s attempt is going to be?
The ancient evil spirits of Baal, Babylon, and Rome, Hitler, Islam and their assistant spirits of the counterfeit church, are once again doomed to destruction, this time eternal destruction.
I took this picture in the Etosha Game Reserve, Namibia – one of the biggest in the world (22,000sq kms.) and by far the most spectacular.

Edition 294: January 13th 2016
Why do the Jews not see their Messiah?
Why do the Jews not see their Messiah?
●This edition is directly related to the next two – don’t miss them.
The question is why do the Jews not see their Messiah YET?
It’s a very important and critical question. The answer has so many massive consequences for the whole world!
In this edition I want to examine the cause of the spiritual blindness, and when and how it will be lifted. What will be the dramatic consequences and what does it mean for the world?
This is a very important and timely issue, please don’t take any of this lightly, your very salvation may depend upon it!
The falling away and resulting blindness upon the Jews was prophesied succinctly by our Jewish Messiah way back when Pa fell off the bus.
Matthew 23:39 “I say to you (Jews), you shall see Me no more till you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’”
And with that the veil of spiritual blindness came down on the Jewish nation.
Our Lord stood looking over Jerusalem and wept, because He wanted to gather the Jews into His kingdom then, but they rejected Him.
This was, and still is, in most cases, the biggest saddest rejection and betrayal of all time, with such great consequences for the world, but as Matthew says above, it is “till” a point in time!
Jewish objections to Yeshua:
The fault lies with most of the Rabbis and the people themselves who have blindly given themselves to the word of the Rabbis, presuming that they are right and speak for God. These Rabbis have taught their people that Yeshua is not the Jewish Messiah and can’t be for the following reasons.
To be recognised as the Jewish Messiah, He must fulfil the following conditions:
●He can only appear when the ingathering of the Jews from world exile is complete. ●The Messiah will be King of Israel. ●The temple must be rebuilt. It was still standing in the days of the first coming. ●There must be worldwide peace. ●The Messiah will reign when all Jews observe the full Torah. ●All people of the world will worship this Messiah. ●The Messiah must be from Judah, a descendant of King David. ●They say that theSecond Coming is proof of the failure of the first.
A most powerful answer:
At the first coming our Lord actually did fulfil everything and a lot more than the Jewish Rabbis could imagine!
You see, He fulfilled everything at His first coming spiritually. The kingdom of God came spiritually first before it comes in the natural and physical to the earth. He is King now of His kingdom, but it’s a spiritual kingdom now. He has made us the temple of the Holy Spirit now, but it’s a spiritual temple, “built in three days and nights.” He has made peace with us, His people, by the new-birth and work of the cross and shed blood, but it’s essentially still spiritual. He is ruling and reigning now as the King and Prince of peace, but it’s a spiritual rule. And we could on and on.
Basically all the conditions have been met – spiritually. They will all be completely fulfilled in reality at the Second Coming. In answer to the Rabbi’s condemnation that if there is to be a Second Coming, the first was a failure...what absolute hogwash, hogwash, hogwash!!!
The first advent was the greatest act of victory, success and triumph ever. But the world (all the unsaved) can’t see it because it’s still primarily a spiritual victory and they are blind to this kingdom now.
Isaiah spoke this tragic word prophetically to his people the children of Israel:
Isaiah 59:10 “We grope for the wall like the blind and we grope as if we had no eyes; we stumble at noonday as at twilight; we are as dead men in desolate places.”
The error of the Rabbis:
As spiritual leaders of the Jewish people the Rabbis, being blinded themselves, have contributed and passed on the blindness to the people.
They think they know the Torah, but they can’t see their Messiah, the suffering Jewish Servant almost on every page!
The verses below, paraphrased, explain the difference between true salvation and those who think they are saved. This is one of the reasons why the Jewish Rabbis can’t see their Messiah. “Unless you are born again, into the kingdom of God by the new birth, you can’t even see the kingdom of God.” (John 3:3).
The Rabbis are on the wrong side of the impassable gulf and are blinded.
Luke 16:23-26 ”Being in torment in Hades (hell), he lifted eyes and saw Father Abraham (on the other side) and said to him, ‘have mercy on me, I am in torment in this flame...Besides all this, between us and you there is a great impassable gulf fixed between us.”
Thankfully, today there are many Rabbis who are awakening to the truth, but many still remain vicious enemies of the fullness of the gospel.
God Himself, not you or me will cause them to awaken and give them new spiritual eyes. We can help along the way, but the mass salvation of the Jews will be a sovereign act of God Himself.
Isaiah 7:14 “The Lord Himself will give you a sign, ‘Behold the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and you shall call His name Immanuel.”
The wrecking ball of the church:
The church has done enormous damage to the Jews, more than you could ever imagine.
There is one huge almost universal, consistent problem that arises from Jews when confronted about or considering Yeshau as their Messiah. They all object because Jesus, they say, is some Catholic, Gentile creation. They object to Christmas and Easter also saying that they are Gentile Catholic creations.
They are quite right. The Catholic church has been very successful in keeping the Jews out of the church, which has been their aim since their formation. And will lead to their great fall, destruction and casting into hell. (Except for a few individuals, as revealed in the message to the church at Thyatira in the Revelation.)
When Jews get saved and discover that Jesus is actually Yeshua, the Jew of all Jews and the New Covenant is Jewish in its character, written by Jews (except one), they are most shocked!
As I’ve said a million times and will continue to say, The Bible says that the “Gospel is to go the Jew first”, and the Gentile church is to make the “Jew jealous.”
In most cases, the church has done the exact opposite.
Amazingly, most churches exclude the Biblical truth (or deny it) of the Jews coming to salvation soon.
In many ways, much of the church has been the wrecking ball of the Jews coming to salvation. They have stood in the way for many, many years.
The spirit of the Nazi party:
Why has there been such a long sustained attack against the Jews throughout history? If Satan can keep the Jews from salvation by killing them, or any other means, he has proved God wrong. But all Satan’s attempts will soon backfire on him and God will lift the veil over the Jews and complete His original calling upon them!
►The above image is a trilingual stone engraving from the Persian / Babylonian era. The inscription calls for the killing of the Jews!
In this dead rock of antiquity we see a host of living spirits! Do you see them? I see them all over the place!
Spirits live forever. This includes demon spirits. These evil spirits are arranged in the spirit world in a similar way to an army. There are top leaders equivalent to military generals. They’re called “principalities.” It is these spirits which have possessed many of the world’s worst despots through the ages.
Hitler and the leadership of the Nazi Party were possessed and inhabited by major, powerful demon forces. They were not possessed by new, fresh spirits. They have been around for ages and are still around today seeking new hosts. They have found ready and willing hosts in Islam and many world leaders, including the mass media - their puppets.
Interestingly, this Babylonian stone of death to the Jews became the will and desire of the Babylonians and the church of Rome, which became and still is so deeply entrenched in all things Babylonian.
It’s arguable who killed more Jews, the Catholics in the Inquisitions or Hitler. It actually doesn’t make any difference because the real killer is those demon spirits behind that stone.
The same evil spirits wanting to kill the Jews throughout history are working in the churches of replacement theology.
Tragically, the Bible reveals that Jews will experience another holocaust on their way to salvation. It is the same spirits at work.
Because the false or counterfeit church is a spiritual entity it is already an available tool in Satan’s hands to do his deadly will. These churches are of course blind to their god in disguise and camouflage!
Why is the salvation of the Jews so important?
You can forget about the rapture, or any part of the Second Advent coming about until the prophecies of the coming salvation of the Jews at least begin to come to pass.
Biblically there is a clear link between all the prophecies of the Bible for the Jews coming to pass and the tribulation period, and everything associated with it. This includes a pre-tribulation rapture and the Second Coming itself.
All the great prophecies come to completion when the following conditions are met:
Israel must be host to the greatest part of the second exodus back to the land. Israel must be in a contentious land divided between Jew and Palestinian. Jerusalem must be a divided city. These are the main pieces of the puzzle which must be in place. They are contrary to God’s will, but His word reveals that they will come about.
In and through Israel’s great turmoil and distress caused by Satan, God will bring salvation and victory to the Jews.
The Jews have a wonderful plan born in the heart and mind of God, which will come to pass.
How will it play out?
I will deal with this a lot more in the next two editions, but the short answer now is that it will all end in victory for the Jew and the true church.
Jewish people, do you think that God has prevented you from assimilation into the nations of the world for no reason? Do you think you have and are being brought back to your covenant land for no reason? Do you think that the spiritual veil being lifted upon many of you is just a coincidence?
Jewish people, do you think your nation was born in a day in 1948 for no reason (Isaiah 66:7-8) By the way, in the next edition I’ll deal with how Islam is to be destroyed in a day.
The real big reason that you, Jews can’t see your Messiah is pure pride, which always blinds. In fact, pride causes blindness for anyone – always! That’s why homosexuals can’t see their own special Sodom and Gomorrah coming soon!
So, now you know what you have to do my Jewish friends. You need to seek your Jewish Messiah afresh with all pride dethroned.
Romans 11:29 “The gifts and calling of God are irrevocable.”
What gifts and what calling are these? If you read the previous verses of Romans 11, you will see they all speak of the Jews coming to salvation, while some of the Gentile church is cut off for resisting this call of God.
Do you see the wonderful clue here, my Jewish friends and future family? God’s call upon you to salvation can’t be reversed. It is irrevocable. It is forever. It is unchangeable. It is cast in stone. It is certain, permanent, final, settled and done!
Now have a look at these incredible verses:
Acts 13:47 “I have set you to be a light to the Gentiles that you should be for salvation to the ends of the earth.”
Isaiah 42:6 “I the Lord have called you in righteousness, and will hold your hand; I will keep you and give you as a covenant to the people, as a light to the Gentiles.”
Do you see your calling and purpose, my Jewish friends? So what are you waiting for...open your spiritual eyes, repent for you many years of rebellion. Your Jewish Saviour awaits you.
Zechariah 3:9 “...I will remove the iniquity of that land (Israel) in one day.”
Jews, let me inform you that a great deal of the church is your enemy. Beware of them! Let me also inform you that a fast growing sector of the church are your eternal friends and will stand with you and for you in these days as your veil of blindness gets lifted.
The true churches, Christian Zionists, the Messianics and numerous other Gentile believers, have stood with you and have been a light to you. They have given you the Gospel in all its Hebraic glory. Now the tables are soon to be turned!
You, Jews will become the light to the Gentile nations, bringing the good news of the death, burial and resurrection of the King of the Jews to all nations. (Of course this opens up the pre-tribulation rapture story, which I won’t go into now.)
The great tragedy, revealed in the Bible for a great deal of the church is that just like you were cut off Jews, they will also be cut off as the come against your awakening and re-grafting back into the olive tree.
Romans 11:12 If their (Jews) fall is riches for the world and their failure is riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness?”
Romans 11:15 “If their (Jews) being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be, but life from the dead.”
I took this picture in the spectacular Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana. (There’s a hippo in the water). Moremi is part of the 15,000 sq km Okavango delta, the biggest inland delta in the world. It is wonderfully wild and full of more species big and small that you can ever imagine. I’ve travelled these islands and waterways in boats, dugouts, planes, 4x4s, foot excursions, and micro-lights more times than I can remember since the 1970s. Many times I would camp out in the wilds not seeing another person for days on end.

Shalom and grow in grace!
Edition 293: January 6th 2016.
2016 – a great shaking!
2016 – a great shaking!
This is my promise, my desire and my intention for you through this ministry, The Prophetic Scroll for 2016: Acts 20:24 “I do not count my life dear to me, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Yeshua, to testify to the grace of God.”
The light of the living God, lights everything that is of Him, and for Him in the midst of universal darkness.
Both the light and the dark that I am referring to here are spiritual forces with their consequences, fruits and out-workings.
2015 was a momentous year prophetically with so many pieces of the puzzle falling into place and many other pieces aligning themselves for their placement!
It was a year of massive Christian persecution, opposition and martyrdom.
We also had a year in which the sceptics, the scoffers, the nay-sayers, the doubters, the deceived and the biblically ignorant all had a field year. The enemies of eschatology all seemed to unite and come out of their holes in the ground together.
The reality is that we are drawing ever closer to the close of this age, now at an alarming rate. The tragedy is that few can see it. The unrighteous, the unsaved and spiritually ill-equipped will never see the signs and how they fit into the big prophetic picture. They are spiritually blind to prophecy being unfolded and deaf to the word of God. The god of this world is their hero although they can’t see him either.
If the train is scheduled to arrive at 9am and it’s a bit late, don’t you think the right thing to do is watch and look for it, rather than say, it’s never coming and go home? Think about that very simple, succinct analogy, which the scoffers and sceptics have no answer to. In fact the later the train is, the closer its coming is. If the time is 9.05 and it’s still not here yet, its coming is sooner than before. If it’s 9.10, its even sooner. Get the point?
Romans 13:11-12 “And knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the Day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.”
Ecclesiastes 8:5 “A wise man’s heart discerns both time and judgement.”
Another important thing to think about is that the scoffers and sceptics may be Christians but they really don’t want the Lord to come soon or quickly. They’ve said so by their own actions. They love the kingdom of the world and are too busy with all their programs to be concerned about the soon coming of the kingdom of God.
May I warn you? If your minister or the one you are listening to is an end-time scoffer and criticises eschatology, be careful of him. He will harm you greatly.
The fullness of the kingdom of God is coming a lot sooner than many think and most will not be ready. They will be too busy playing their little insignificant games, and building their own churchy empires.
What a kick-off!
The first few days of the year saw some pretty big rumblings between Saudi Arabia and Iran, which could throw a rather big spanner in the works. Fears are growing that Iran will close the Straits of Hormuz which is a major route for oil tankers and world supply. Russia has its eyes keenly on this spot!
World stock markets got off to a terrible start with huge falls based on the China slow-down and a few other factors. China fell 8%, European markets were down 4%. On the opening trading day and the Dow fell over 420 points and then closed down 275 points.
Reading the signs:
The Bible is full of prophetic signs, but it’s not that simple putting the whole puzzle together. Firstly, we must know the Bible backwards. We must know what signs are for today and which ones were for yesterday, but have a double-reference relating to these end-times.
We must know the order in which many pieces fall into place. You can’t build and fit the ejector seat first. You must first build the rest of the aircraft. The ejector seat goes in last! (I think).
We must know what is biblical in origin and what is extra-biblical. We must know what is pure deception and error. At the end of the day we must know the voice and leading of the Spirit of God in interpreting and putting these things together.
Prophetic things began to take –off in 1948 and in 1967, and now things are really speeding up.
Let me ask you this. If prophetic things to come are speeding up massively, don’t you think that’s all leading to the culmination? You wouldn’t believe so if your source of teaching is most modern churches and their sceptical, scoffers in the pulpit.
By the way, I say to this to the shame of many. There are hundreds of thousands of ministers, bishops, pastors, teachers, self proclaimed apostles and others out there who are more ignorant of the prophetic word than a pile of cow dung.
2016 is the year in which the Hebrew year changes to 5777 on Rosh Hashanah, which this year is on October 3rd. Is there significance to the numbers 5777? Five is the biblical number of grace and seven the number of spiritual perfection or completeness. Does this indicate that the age of grace, the church age is about to be competed? The signs will speak as we move closer.
●This is the time of escalating troubles, the arising of many false prophets, strong deception and delusion. ●It is the time when “truth is cast down in the street”. ●It is the time of scoffers, mockers, and sceptics. ●It is the time of self-obsessed wild wolves in the pulpits leading a blind charge of mass deception. ●It is the time of the cutting off of many withering, wild olive branches (churches) as the Spirit of God moves out. ●It is the time of many nations beginning to “stumble of Jerusalem.” ●It is the time Islam must prepare for its inevitable prophesied defeat. ●It is the time of God’s favour to Israel as the “desert blooms in reality and begins to bloom in their hearts.” ●It is the time of the stirring of the “valley of dry bones.” ●It is the time of the outpouring of the Spirit of God and the resistance to it.
Acts 3:24 “All the prophets from Samuel, and those who follow, have foretold of these days.”
So many people out there, many reading these words too, think that God is politically correct. Read the verse below!
Ezekiel 14:13-14 “Son of man, when a land sins against me by persistent unfaithfulness, I will stretch out My hand against it; I will cut off its supply of bread, send famine upon it and cut off man and beast from it. Though these three men, Noah, Daniel and Job were in it, they would deliver only themselves by their righteousness says the Lord God.”
Do you see the principle revealed in this incredible verse above? There are many others like it. Few will be saved at the end of the day. Are you one of them? Are you sure about your salvation? Have you checked out your foundation?
2 Corinthians 6:17 “Be separate don’t touch what is unclean and I will receive you...let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”
Touching what is unclean relates to so much today. Almost the entire entertainment world is unclean in the extreme. It is the definition of scum. If you come into contact with these things by choice it is your problem. You don’t have to expose yourselves to what is unclean and things that will defile you.
Easy- believism is the plague of the western world. The problem is an easy life of excessive materialism, liberalism, greed, self-seeking, worldliness and the like, which has crept into the church. But you don’t need to live on the salt mines of Siberia to escape easy-believism. You can do it now on your own, in your own life wherever you are.
Isaiah 5:8 is headed: “Impending judgement on excesses.” It’s an earth shattering read from there onwards!
You can forsake and deny many things. You can “throw off the weights that so easily beset.” (Hebrews 12:1)
If our Lord preached the same easy message today as most churches, He would not have been crucified. He would be welcomed by the world just like Jolly Slob Santa, Saint Nick’s Satan. Do you want to see the shocking connection? Look up “Saint Nick Satan.”
Because of all the other pieces of the jigsaw puzzle that are in place and falling into place now this has to be the year of increasing wars, martyrdom, economic collapse, increasing deception and many other things.
The year of wars:
We will see huge wars and conflicts this year. This may be the year of Ezekiel’s Gog & Magog, the war of Psalm 83 and the attempted destruction of Israel. It may well be the year in which Isaiah 17 (destruction of Damascus) is fulfilled. It is very likely to be the year of numerous other smaller wars. It will be the year in which migrants turn to hunters!
One of the verses to be fulfilled in the tribulation declares that “peace will be taken from the earth” (Revelation 6:4.) We are now most certainly in the forerunner period to that.
As I write, we are seeing Saudi Arabia and Iran begin to make dire threats against each other. This could very quickly spread into major conflict.
The year of mass martyrdom:
Sound dramatic? Well, yes it would be if you live almost anywhere in the western world. But if you are in Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and other Islamic states, you would know that this headline is par for the course! It’s already happening on a massive scale.
This will be the year it increases dramatically and comes to the west as well.
We are now seeing the forerunners of Revelation 20:4
The year the world economy collapses?
The world economy is set to grow by 3.5% for 2016. This is lower than before and reflects a slow-down, but not a catastrophe by any means. Some nations are already in recession and others are heading that way. The big guys like the US, UK and EU are forecast to grow, but minimally.
This all applies essentially to the corporate world and not smaller to mid-sized businesses where the stress is strong. The problem is the rate of slow-down in other nations like China, Russia, Brazil and others.
World stock markets are expected to reflect tepid growth for the year, or even a slight decline.
That’s what all the educated wiz-kids and wise-guy analysts have to say. But then they are uneducated and blind to many things we are not blind to! They don’t know that their judge is about to appear – our Saviour! They think we are mad – they will soon see and so will we!
What the world economy and stock markets will not like is any degree of uncertainty created by extra-economic events like socio-geo-political dramas. They are coming by the bucket load!
So will we see a world economic collapse? I believe so, when taking the timing and all other factors of eschatology into consideration.
The clash of light and darkness:
One of the main characteristics of the end-times is massive deception. Our Lord warned of it five times in the end-time discourse on the Mount of Olives. All you need to do is spend some time on You Tube and you will see how much satanic garbage there is dressed as truth, being presented by proud, arrogant fools with a hidden agenda.
My friends, time is running out. Just consider the severity and gravity of the following few verses:
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.”
Isaiah 55:6 “Seek the Lord while He may be found.”
Amos 8:11 “Behold the days are coming says the Lord God, that I will send a famine on the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord.”
John 12:35-36 “A little while longer the light is with you. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you. He who walks in darkness does not know where he is going. While you have the light, believe in the light...”
Amos 5:18 “Woe to you who desire the day of the Lord! For what good is the day of the Lord to you? It will be darkness and not light!”
Proverbs 1:28-29 “Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; they will seek Me diligently, but will not find Me, because they hated knowledge and did not chose the fear of the Lord.”
This will be the year in which the clash of living light will intensify greatly with deadly darkness. This will manifest in the clash of truth and error, right and wrong, Godly good and worldly good, values and virtues born of God and those born of the devil.
This will be the year in which satanically driven hatred for the true church of the living God will arise from the counterfeit church and the institutions of the world.
Four wraths and three valleys:
As we approach the tribulation period, there will be numerous forerunners. As the world enters the tribulation period it will be rocked and shaken by the ●wrath of God, ●the wrath of man, ●the wrath of Satan and ●the wrath of nature, all running together. Some 4 billion people will die in the seven-year tribulation.
The Bible also uses the expressive term of “valleys” for some of the things that occur in the tribulation period, of which we are seeing the beginnings even now.
But bear in mind that as we get nearer to the tribulation period, the forerunners or “labour pains” will also intensify. So although I believe in a pre-tribulation rapture, I also believe that this time period, specifically now in 2016 is going to be perhaps the most tumultuous and dramatic year the world has seen.
Psalm 60:4 “You have given a banner to those who fear You, that it may be displayed because of the truth.”
Are you a “banner” of the truth? I tell you, that you are a banner! You decide what is written on your banner for all to see!
The valley of great slaughter:
Jeremiah 7:32 “The days are coming says the Lord, when this place shall be called the Valley of Slaughter, for they shall bury in Tophet (Judah and Jerusalem) until there is no room.”
This will be the year in which the “valley of dry bones” begins to come to life and the so-named Christian valley next door, fills up with more and more dead bones, never to arise.
Please study your Bible and know that God’s great work in these end days is to bring His people the Jews to salvation and to cut off and kill much of the church especially those of replacement theology.
Those offended by my statement above need to read the following verses: Start off by reading the whole Bible, then study Romans 11:21-23, Revelation 2:22-23, Ezekiel 20:41-42, Jeremiah 31:31.
The valley of dry bones:
Ezekiel 37:1-14 “The Lord set me down in the midst of a valley and it was full of bones...and indeed they were very dry and He said to me, ‘Son of man, can these bones live? Prophecy to these bones and say to them, O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord...Then you shall know, O My people when I have opened your graves, I will put My Sprit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land, then you shall know that I have done it.’”
Isaiah 9:2 “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, upon them a light has shined.”
Acts 13:47 “I have set you (Jews) to be a light to the Gentiles that you should be for salvation to the ends of the earth.”
Isaiah 42:6 “I the Lord have called you in righteousness, and will hold your hand; I will keep you and give you as a covenant to the people, as a light to the Gentiles.”
This is an extremely dramatic picture of the Jewish people coming to salvation as the veil of blindness is lifted.
The powerful imagery here represents the final and complete purpose and calling of God upon His people all coming to pass in a very short period of time.
This glorious program of God, resisted by the devil, and much of the church, will go into high gear this year in the run-up to the tribulation.
Isaiah 5:26 “He will raise up a banner to the nations from afar and will whistle to them from the end of the earth; surely they will come with speed, swiftly.”
Note from the verse above that the second Exodus will speed up once it has started!
The valley of decision:
Joel 3:14 “Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.”
This familiar verse above is really like a lifeline being thrown out. God is about to shake everything that can be shaken including everything that modern man esteems highly and puts their trust and security in.
When the ground shakes people with any sense look around for stability. This is also the time in which the Spirit of the Lord is being outpoured more and more. So, yes many will make the right decision, but it will be few in terms of overall numbers.
The year the hunters run!
I refer you back to Edition 288, entitled “The transition from fishermen to hunters.” This will be the year the hunters appear on the stage. The exodus back to the land of Israel will intensify massively.
The collective name for the hunters is “Anti-Semitism” in all its forms, but specifically from Quran-based Islam.
All the nations of the world in which there are resident Jews will host hunters, bringing ultimate destruction on themselves. (Jeremiah 16:16)
Personally, I have a strong, arising sense of doom for this year. Of course there is always the exact opposite running at the same time. So I expect huge doom on one hand and great glory on the other, for the few that are His.
At this stage I don’t know exactly what it is, and I will not stick my neck out just yet. As soon as I have the word of the Lord, you will know.
It may well be the convergence and culmination of all these things, rising to a crescendo, winding up towards the climax.
The year of the rapture?
Maybe! We will see, won’t we?
I must confess that the book on the rapture, which I have been writing is almost finished, but I did get sidetracked, or perhaps led to put it on hold until now. I am again writing and it will be ready soon! It has lots of things in it which I’m sure you have never heard of or thought about.
Proverbs 20:15 “There is gold and a multitude of rubies, but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.”
This will be the year of great opportunity for many believers. A yacht moves forward into the wind by the set of the sail. Likewise, we can use all the opposition and troubles thrown at us to turn the tables on the devil, for God. This is my prayer for you this year.
Be strong in the Lord, stand securely like a giant mountain!
►Job 17:9 “The righteous will hold onto his ways, and he who has clean hands will be stronger and stronger.”
I took this picture early one morning from a chopper flying over an area called “The Rockeries” in the Drakensberg Mountains.
Shalom and grow in grace!
