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.

Today Israel is at the crossroads of her history and is faced with a dilemma of direction. Which road will she take? The road of appeasement will bring more troubles. The road of resistance to Islam will be the road of God’s favour.
US General Dempsey says of ISIS: “This is an organisation that has an apocalyptic, end-of-days strategic vision that will eventually have to be defeated.”
ISIS says it wants to destroy Hamas for not being tough enough.
ISIS is expanding across the Middle East with purpose and vision. Their ultimate goal is to set up an Islamic State and to destroy Israel. As part of their world conquest goal, the US, UK, EU and others are to be brought into submission and control.
The US is in an awkward situation dealing with the Middle East Trying to find allies in the Muslim world is the problem. They are damned if the do and damned if they don’t! Any true Muslim is not a moderate. In fact it is the moderates and nominal Muslims who are way out of line with the Quran.
Here are some verse that Obama, CNN and other blind men and women have no idea even exist.
The Quran commands its followers to “slay Christians and Jews wherever you find them” 2:191-193. In 5:33, “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and his messenger is that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands or feet cut off on opposite sides.”
►The New York Times published an insightful story a few days ago entitled, “US General says raiding Syria is the key to halting ISIS. It requires the application of all the tools of national power.” (Some of you can already hear prophetic bells ringing!)
The US is on the doorstep of being drawn into conflict with ISIS and with a spineless, half-baked Muslim as President!
Edition 222. August 27th 2014
Open your eyes and your heart:
Open your eyes and your heart:
We are on the verge of great things. The prophetic pieces of the giant jigsaw puzzle are falling into place rapidly. As we approach the final act of the greatest drama of all time, we will see an escalation in prophetic fulfilment.
Unfortunately only those with spiritual eyes to see will see it. Many others will only see these things as we move into them and many others still – those with hard hearts, will see nothing at all from God’s prophetic word.
The greatest prophetic event is and will be the salvation of the Jews in large numbers. This will intensify and reach its climax in the seven-year tribulation period, but we are now in the “forerunner” stage.
The salvation of the Jews:
We are now on the verge of this great move of God. But there are many problems and objections which the Jews hold onto. They still largely reject Yeshua as the Messiah. There are many reasons for this, but let’s have a look at a few of the main ones.
The Roman Catholic church has been very successful in keeping the Jews out of the church, by re-characterising the church and making it foreign and hostile to them. The traditions and convocations originated by the Catholics and perpetuated by them and the reformers are very real reasons why many Jews want nothing to do with the church or the Santa Claus Messiah. The Jews have been in Babylonian captivity before and are very suspicious of all the Babylonian trappings brought into the church by the Catholics.
Here’s just one little example. Have you ever wondered why Passover and Easter never fall on the same day although they are just a few days apart? Over a thousand years ago the Catholics invented a “movable” system in which Easter would simply be shifted so that it doesn’t ever fall on the same day as Passover. And what was the reason for this? It is to keep the convocations of the church separate and foreign to the Jews, so that they would stay out of the church! (If you don’t believe me look it up.)
Jewish objections to Yeshua as the Messiah:
●They believe the Messiah would have set up the kingdom of God on earth and Yeshua didn’t. ●They believe the Messiah will destroy all evil and Yeshua didn’t. ●They believe the Messiah will usher in world peace and Yeshua didn’t. ●They believe that Messiah will end all war and Yeshusa didn’t do this. ●They believe that Messiah will return to the Mount of Olives and enter Jerusalem through the Golden Gate and Yeshua didn’t. ●They believe that there will be no Second Coming, because that would mean that the first was a failure. And many more, but you get the picture.
So, what about these objections? What happened and are they right? They couldn’t be more wrong!
Let’s break it down and see what the truth is.
●Yeshua did set up the kingdom, but it is an internal kingdom in the hearts of those who accept and believe in Him.
●Yeshua did destroy evil, by removing the power of sin in our hearts, delivering us into holiness in spirit, which we then work to the outside.
●Yeshua did usher in a world of peace, but it is internal peace with God in our hearts through the work of the cross. Peace is a fruit of reconciliation with God.
●Yeshua did deliver us from war. His kingdom is one of peace, but it is internal, of the heart.
●The First Coming was no failed mission. The death, burial and resurrection of our Lord was the greatest victory of all time over all the forces of darkness, and delivering salvation to those who believe and accept it as a free gift. Accepting free redemption is a great stumbling block to many.
Our Lord will fulfil all the Biblical expectations of the Jews at the Second Coming, but how much better to understand the Suffering, Servant- Messiah now – Yeshua the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Messiah ben Yoseph is the suffering Messiah who came as redeemer and died; Messiah ben David is still to come – exalted as King eternal.
There are many more objections, but all have a similar response. The Jews can’t see their Messiah because they are looking in the wrong place. They can’t see that the major work of their Messiah was internal in our hearts and the external work is still to come.
The title of this edition, “Open your eyes and open your hearts” is very powerful and far reaching. If you don’t have an open, soft, broken, repentant heart before our Lord and His word, you will not see the Messiah. In fact you will never understand the Bible.
►Here are some powerful verses of scripture relating to these things:
2 Corinthians 3:14-16 “Their minds were hardened. For until this day the same veil remains un-lifted in the reading of the Old Covenant, because the veil is only taken away in Messiah. Even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.”
What an incredible verse this is! Do you want to really know and understand the deep things of God? Good – then come to Him in surrender! But now let’s look at a few equally powerful verses relating to God’s dealing with Israel:
►Here comes the light! God brought the children of Israel back into their land in spiritual darkness and once this is complete they are brought into spiritual light by their repentance.
Isaiah 42:16 “I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them.”
Isaiah 29:18 “In that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book and the eyes of the blind shall see out of the obscurity of darkness.”
Jewish people, if you await your Messiah at our Second Coming and it’s the First Coming for you – it just may be too late!
The Jews also hold to the mistaken belief that salvation is attained by the keeping the works of the law of the Old Covenant. This is a huge error that has to be dealt with. Please see the teaching “Under the law or not.” It is Here.
Psalm 118:19-22 “Open to me the gates of righteousness, I will go through them and praise the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord through which the righteous shall enter. I will praise You for You have answered me and become my salvation.”
The cause of Israel’s blindness:
Once before Israel did not recognise her Messiah! This was because pride had blinded them and caused them to hold to mistaken beliefs that the work of the Messiah would only be external and physical in nature.
Luke 19:42-44 “If you had known (the time of your visitation), especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes... Not one stone will be left standing upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”
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.”
Luke 13:34-35 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem the one who kills the prophets and stones the ones sent to her. How often I have wanted to gather your children as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, but you were not willing! See your house is left to you desolate; and assuredly I say to you, you shall not see Me until the time comes when you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name (HaShem) of the Lord!’”
The verse above is truly amazing! Do you see what it is saying? Do you see its application to where we are right now? Do you see that it is saying Israel will see who her Messiah is as soon as she turns in repentance?
Israel, do you see that once before, you “killed” the prophetic word spoken to you and your eyes were blinded? Don’t let it happen again. The prophetic word is speaking to you again now!
Dense spiritual darkness is always directly related to a hard proud heart. “God gives grace to the humble and resists the proud.” (James 4:6) And that relates to everyone – Jew and Gentile!
In Israel’s case every time they rebelled against God’s word and ways they fell, went into captivity or ended up spiritually blind.
The cause and timing of Israel’s coming enlightenment:
If pride and rebellion causes blindness then humility and repentance brings spiritual sight.
Joel 2:13 “Rend your hearts and not your garments. Return to your Lord, for He is gracious and compassionate...”
Deuteronomy 4:30-31 “When you are in distress and all these things come upon you in the latter days, when you turn to the Lord your God and obey His voice, He will not forsake you nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them.”
The cause of Israel’s repentance will come about as a result of the great troubles facing Israel from the international community. We are now in the period known as the forerunner to the tribulation. We are seeing only small numbers of Jews coming to salvation now, but once the tribulation begins, the Jews will recognise their Messiah nationally.
Israel’s national repentance will occur when they have been brought back to the land of Israel!
Ezekiel 37:11-14 “He said to me, ‘Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel’. They say, ‘our bones are very dry, our hope is lost and we are cut off!’ Therefore prophecy and say to them, ‘thus says the Lord God: Behold O my people, I will open your graves and bring you into the land of Israel’. Then you shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up from your graves. I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I shall place you in your own land...”
Jeremiah 16:16 “Behold I will send for many fishermen says the Lord, and they shall fish them; and afterward I will send from many hunters and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.
A fisherman lures his prey with bait and a hunter drives his prey from behind. The typology here reveals that God had been fishing and luring the Jews back. But if they don’t respond, they will be hunted and driven back into God’s plan. Either way, they will come back! How much better to respond to the fisherman!
The great Second Exodus is on the go now. It is not complete but it is well underway.
We are now very close to the period called “the end of the times of the Gentiles” (Luke 21:24.)This is the period when Gentile rule of Jerusalem comes to an end. The time began in 1967 when Jerusalem was restored to Jewish rule. We must now be at the very end of this period.
Pointing to the time period is the birth of the nation of Israel, the city of Jerusalem falling under Jewish control, the start of the Jewish spiritual enlightenment. We are close to the end of a Biblical generation, whichever numbers are used. We are in the middle of the blood-moon tetrad of lunar eclipses. We are seeing major prophetic developments with wars, conflicts and re-alignment of nations.
The worldwide effects of Israel’s repentance:
The gathering of Israel back to her land and her soon-coming salvation is and will be a “banner to the nations.” A banner is a big sign up in your face. How many can see the banner now? Unfortunately most do not have eyes to see it.
Isaiah 11:10-12 “In that day there shall be a root of Jesse, who shall stand as a banner to the people; for the Gentiles shall seek Him and His resting place shall be glorious... He will set up a banner for the nations (Gentiles), and will assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.”
Isaiah 49:6 “I also will give you (Israel) as a light to the Gentles, that you should be My salvation to the ends of the earth.”
Zechariah 8:23 “For thus says the Lord of hosts: “In those days ten men from every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, “Let us go with you for we have heard that God id with you.””
The soon coming tribulation period will have a strongly Jewish flavour to it. The 144,000 male Jews of Revelation 7 will be involved in large scale evangelism with the two witnesses.
In fact God’s initial call upon the Jews was for them to be the deliverers of the good news to the world. They will complete this job as originally called to.
Here is the Jewish Messiah:
Isaiah 53:3-5 “He is despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief and we hid as it were our faces from Him; He was despised and we did not esteem Him. Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows, yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God and afflicted. He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.”
Jewish people, this verse speaks of your Messiah. His name is Yeshua. He is not the Gentilised blonde, blue-eyed celebrator of occult, pagan, Babylonian traditions like Christmas and Easter. He is no despiser of the Feasts and Hebraic characteristics of true Biblical Christianity. He is the Jew of all Jews, the lover of your soul. He is the Hebrew Jew identified in the Old Covenant and revealed in the New.
A final word of warning to Israel:
Israel, if you reject the “Suffering Messiah” you are lost. If you reject all that was entailed in the first coming of the Lord, you are lost. There is only salvation in and through the death, burial and resurrection of Yeshua.
The entirety of your Tenach, the Old Covenant, points to the coming Saviour of the New Covenant.
Israel, rend your hearts, repent of your rejection of the Messiah. Israel open your eyes and seek your King, He is very nearby, loves you and wants you to do His will, for which He created you.
Micah 7:8-9 “Do not rejoice over me, my enemy: when I fall I will arise, when I sit in darkness the Lord will be a light to me...He will bring me forth to the light, and I will see His righteousness.”
A final word of warning to the church:
Catholic church, instead of blessing Israel you cursed Israel all your life. You are beyond repentance. To the few within it who may be saved – get out of the whore of Babylon, before you come under her judgement with her.
Many churches have been instrumental in obstructing God and standing in His way relating to Israel. All those who are deeply into replacement theology, unless you repent fast, and change your way, you are lost, even though, in your pride, you think you have God’s favour (Matthew 7:21-23). What you have is the deceptive favour of the devil! While proclaiming belief in the Bible, you have massacred it and blocked God’s work!
Romans 11:25-26 “I do not desire, brethren that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that hardening in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved.”
Job 38:15 “From the wicked their light is withheld...”
Much of the church will stand against Israel and be responsible for half the world becoming enslaved by and to Islam in the very near future.
The timing of all of these things is critical. It’s all beginning to unfold now! Israel – now is your time. Your enemy, the mass media, Islam and the apostate part of the church, knows it and they are trying to destroy you through crafty humanism and sheer force.
In fact, Israel, your real big enemy, Satan himself, is the one who using many to try to destroy you.
Israel, know this: There is a growing number of Christians who love you and stand with you. Know that there are many within the true Church who will die for you if called to do so. Know that the pressure on you is about to intensify and many will remain faithful in standing with you and for you.
Israel, you will never be alone.
Israel, repent and open your spiritual eyes now.
Matthew 27:50-52 “Yeshua, when He had cried out again with a loud voice, yielded up His spirit (crucifixion.) And behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked and the rocks were split, and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised.”
Zechariah 9:9 “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, lowly and riding on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey.”
Zechariah 12:10 “I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they have pierced, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for an only son and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.”
Israel, you must pray for our great God to open your eyes as He has promised He will. Pray that He lifts the veil of blindness. He has said He will. Pray in broken repentance for your pride and rejection of Yeshua the Messiah.
I took these pictures in the various locations in the deserts and mountains of southern Africa.
Luke 19:40 “I tell you that if they (the multitude of disciples) keep quiet, even the stones will cry out.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
Edition 221. August 20th 2014
What must Israel do?
What must Israel do?
(See the section entitled, “The glorious amethyst”, below, for an explanation of the image above.)
These are days of doom, glory, demonic deception, truth, the end of an era and the early days of God’s new world.
These are days of excitement and the spiritual awakening of the sleeping giant, Israel. King David is stirring in his grave. He is about to stand up and once again face Goliath! Any bets or guesses who will win again?
Our modern day David is under great threat. His very existence is threatened on multiple fronts.
What must Israel do now? I don’t care what you think, or I think or the mass-media thinks. What God thinks and says is the bottom line.
The wisdom of Issachar:
1 Chronicles 12:32 “Of Issachar, men who have understanding (Lit= to have insight) of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, 200 chiefs, and all their kinsmen were under their command.”
Issachar was the ninth son of Jacob. The name Issachar means “He will bring a reward.” These selected men within the tribe of Issachar had knowledge of astronomy and celestial cycles. They knew when the Feasts of the Lord were to be kept and they knew all about times and seasons and the calendar. The sons of Issachar had knowledge of things past, present and future relating to Israel.
The sons of Issachar are also associated in the Bible with a donkey lying down between two heavy burdens. The symbolism here is taking the easy way out! (Genesis 49:14)
1 Chronicles 12:18 “Then the Spirit came upon Amasai, (means “to carry a heavy burden”) chief of the captains and he said: ‘We are yours, O David; we are on your side, O son of Jesse! Peace, peace to you, and peace to your helpers! For your God helps you. So David received them, and made them captains of the troops.”
1 Chronicles 12:33 “Of Zebulun (means “to dwell gloriously”) there were fifty thousand who went out to battle, experts in war, with all the weapons of war, stouthearted men who could keep ranks.”
1 Chronicles 12:38 “All these men of war, who could keep ranks, came to Hebron with a loyal heart, to make David king over all Israel; and all the rest of Israel were of one mind to make David king.”
These verses reveal the switch of the troops from Saul to following David. Those who remained with Saul died. These verses speak of David’s military men standing with him and relate today to Israel’s military machine!
The glorious Amethyst:
The image right at the top is an amethyst overlaid on many small amethysts.
The gemstone of the tribe of Issachar is the amethyst, which has a beautiful royal purple / violet colour. It is rich in symbolism. This is God’s colour.
The ninth stone in the priest’s breastplate is the amethyst. The belief is that the amethyst prevents intoxication. So, drinking cups were made of amethyst. The Hebrew meaning is to dream and gain wisdom. It is also the 12th foundation stone of the New Jerusalem.
So, wrapped up in this stone is sobriety, royalty, preciousness, and dreams from God.
Nine is the number of finality. It is also the gestation period of the human baby. It is also associated with the nine fruits of the Spirit. The amethyst is also associated with judgment.
Exodus 28:15-19 “You shall make the breastplate of judgment ...the third row – an amethyst.”
Deuteronomy 33:18-19, 24 “They (Zebulun and Issachar) shall call the peoples to the mountains; There they shall offer sacrifices of righteousness; for they shall partake of the abundance of the seas and the treasures hidden in the sands.” Verse 24 “Asher is the most blessed of sons; let him be favoured by his brothers and let him dip his foot in oil.”
This speaks of the fact that oil wealth will play a part in the end-time events.
The Issachar summary:
Okay, so let’s put this lot together and see what we come up with.
●The sons of Issachar knew the celestial signs. This applies to the prophetic importance of the lunar cycles and the Feasts of the Lord and would include signs such as the lunar eclipse tetrad.
●We can apply the meaning of the name, Issachar, “he will bring a reward,” to Israel and the reward who is the Messiah Himself.
●Israel will be presented with “the easy way out”. That will be the way of the world and the two-state solution etc.
●The military leaders with their “heavy burdens” will remain or become loyal to David (Israel).
●The military machine of Israel will be highly disciplined “people who can keep rank”. In other words they will be loyal to God’s covenants and not be influenced by the opinions of the world in favour of the Palestinians.
●We see in the amethyst messages of sobriety, wisdom, dreaming of victory, finality and judgment.
●In relation to Issachar, Zebulun and Asher we see associations with the treasures of the deep and of the sands. We see a “foot dipped in oil.” This relates perfectly to oil wealth and could also extend to agriculture and other riches also. The recent massive oil and gas discoveries by Israel fit in well here.
The Feasts of the Lord:
The sons of Issachar knew the celestial signs and their relationship to Israel. The Feasts of the Lord are based on the lunar calendar. They would have known all about the importance of the Feasts to Israel and their meanings.
Of the seven Feasts of the Lord, the first four have already been fulfilled in the events of the cross, resurrection and coming of the Spirit at Pentecost. The remaining three are still to be fulfilled. They will be fulfilled in the same order as the others. They will be fulfilled in the events of the tribulation period, wrath, and judgement leading up to the Second Coming and the Millennium.
The next Feast to be fulfilled is the Feast of Trumpets, also called Rosh Hashanah (and known as the Jewish New Year.) It will be fulfilled at the start of the tribulation.
This Feast is celebrated over the first two days of the Jewish New Year. Do you see the importance of that? If we are going to have a tribulation start, then this could also be the time of the rapture. But, “no one knows the day or hour”. Well, if Trumpets is a two-day Feast that means the rapture could take place here and qualify for “no one knowing the day.”
The Feast is characterised by self-judgement and repentance. This also relates to the Jews on a much wider scale.
This Feast is characterised by numerous trumpet or shofar blasts all having meaning. It is also when the names of the “righteous” are written in the Book of Life.
Many are not aware that this Feast marks the sixth day of creation. In terms of the seven dispensations of God, this means that the Feast of Trumpets this year could be on a day marking the end of one dispensation and the start of another. This would be the end of the Church era, and the start of Daniel’s seventieth week, (the tribulation), completing the Old Covenant.
Amongst the different trumpet blasts are nine staccato blasts signifying awakening, with nine being the number of finality.
The Torah portion for day two of the Feast is usually Jeremiah 31:1-19 which amazingly includes the “time of Jacob’s trouble” – the tribulation period, which is the judgement of God.
The Feast of Trumpets is primarily associated with judgement. It is coming soon. It is all about judgment on the world. The one thing the world hates and has removed from society is judgement and the very definition of sin. The tribulation is about to bring modern man down, down, down!
At the same time we have the next of the four blood moon tetrad eclipses.
At the same time Israel will be brought under extremely severe judgment, but the Jews will repent en mass.
So, now these are the messages from the sons of Issachar. Let’s go further and see what else the Bible has to say about what Israel must do now.
God’s promises to Israel:
You had better know these things and know them well in this day!
Understand that Esau, Ishmael, the Philistines and the tribes with an “ite” in their names are the source and root of the Arab peoples and by extension the Palestinians. Edom and Amman are modern day Jordan and are also a type of the Palestinians.
Malachi 1:3-4 “Jacob I have loved and Esau I have hated, and laid waste his mountains and his heritage for the jackals of the wilderness. Even though Edom (Esau) has said, we have been impoverished, but we will return and build the desolate places, thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘They may build but I will throw down; they shall be called the Territory of Wickedness, and the people with whom the Lord will have indignation forever. Your eyes shall see, and you shall say, The Lord is magnified beyond the border of Israel.”
Ezekiel 35:5-6 “Because you 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 blood and blood shall pursue you.”
Genesis 17:7-8 “I will establish My covenant between Me and you (Abraham) and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you. Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession, and I will be their God.”
Genesis 17:18-21 “Abraham said to God, ‘O that Ishmael might live before You!’ Then God: “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.”
Genesis 27:40-41 “By your sword you shall live, and you shall serve your brother, and it shall come to pass when you become restless, that you shall break his yolk from your neck. So Esau hated Jacob (Israel)”
Obadiah 1:10 “For violence (Lit-Chamac, Hamas in English) against your brother Jacob (Israel) shame shall cover you and you shall be cut off forever.”
Amos 1:6-7 “I will send fire on the walls of Gaza...and the remnants of the Philistines (Palestinians today) shall perish.”
These verses above are of vital importance as they clearly spell out God’s will and way in the eternal covenants He made with Israel. Who owns the land of Israel? Who has a legitimate right to it? It’s all very clear in these verses.
In these verses we see the origin of the Israeli / Palestinian troubles today.
What Israel should have done:
What powerful verses these are:
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 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.”
Here is the cause of the entire Israeli / Palestinian problem! Here it is all wrapped in these incredible verses above!
Note that God’s command to the children of Israel going over into the Promised Land was for them to destroy these people and their gods and religion. These people were the ones from whom the modern Arabs and Palestinians originated.
Note what God said would happen if they did not destroy them all!
We know from history that the children of Israel did not completely destroy these people as they went into the Promised Land. Now the Palestinians are “irritants in their eyes” “Thorns in their side harassing them.”
Summary of the above verses and key phrases:
The world has coined the term “The Territories” relating to so-called Israeli-occupied territory. But note what God calls them. He calls them “The Territory of wickedness!”
So, we see in God’s covenants with Israel and in these verses above, who owns the land, and the city of Jerusalem. We see the gravity and severity of God’s word on these issues. This all applies to the current situation.
What you must do is stand with God’s word for Israel and stand against God’s and Israel’s enemies, especially the mass media.
What I’ve done for your benefit now is simply grouped some of the key phrases from this edition into those that relate to the Palestinians and those that relate to Israel.
●The territory of wicked. ●The Lord will have indignation on them forever. ●They shall be irritants in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they shall harass you. ●They shall be cut off forever. ● I will prepare you (Palestinians) for blood and blood shall pursue you.
●Do not take the easy way out. ● I have made with you an everlasting covenant and given the land to you as an everlasting possession. ●Make no covenant with them. ●Destroy these people and their gods.
Jeremiah 31:13 “Then shall the young women rejoice in dance and the young and old men shall be merry. I will turn their mourning into joy. I will comfort them and give them gladness for sorrow.”
Israel will dance the dance of God! One thing that I’ve always noticed is that the Jews are a very “dancy” people! Soon, like David, they will dance before the Lord with all their might. But it will be a dance like no other! It will be a salvation dance!
Psalm 89:15 “Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! They walk, O Lord, in the light of Your countenance.”
What Israel must do now is do what it should have done ages ago! If Israel had done what God commanded her way back in the Exodus times the picture would be different! But God knew that they would rebel and provided for it in His word.
The shocking thing is that God’s requirements for Israel today are the same as back in antiquity. It is military conquest that Israel needs to perform and not repeated cease fires and peace deals.
We know from God’s word that Israel will be victorious in the end. What is really amazing is that all of these things are starting to unfold before us right now and few can see it. Yet God has shown it to us in His word.
What will Israel actually do?
Ezekiel 39:21-29 “I will set My glory among the nations; all the nations shall see My judgment, so the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day forward. The Gentiles shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity; because they were unfaithful to Me, therefore I hid My face from them. I gave them into the hand of their enemies and they all fell by the sword... Now I bring back the captives of Jacob and have mercy on the whole house of Israel; and I will be jealous for My holy name after they have borne their shame...Then they shall know that I am the Lord their God who sent them into captivity...And I will not hide My face from them anymore; for I shall have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel says the Lord.”
The above verses and many like it show that Israel will endure and finally repent nationally and respond to God’s word in obedience. At the same time they will see and recognise their Messiah.
Israel will ultimately do what God has said and told them to do. Israel will ultimately become the Messiah-messenger to the world.
But it won’t be without going through incredible and terrible war, conflict hardship and suffering due to their rebellion against God.
Today there is so much disagreement on the Palestinian / Israeli issue. Amazingly it is all laid out right here in the scriptures. Not only is God’s plot and plan laid out for all to see, how it will play out and the end is also right here!
Unfortunately only the few compared to the many will see it and rest in the truth.
What must you do?
At the end of the day what Israel must do and what you must do is open your heart and mind to our Lord. Open your spiritual eyes and your heart. Gain knowledge, understanding and wisdom of the things of God and do it with a soft repentant heart before our Lord.
Toughen up your defences. Close your mind and heart to the will and way of the devil trying to lead you away from God’s truth.
Spit on the opinions of the mass-media and reject their influence.
It’s very wise to get yourself on God’s side, to say nothing of the beautiful rest and peace it creates.
How stupid, thick and dumb it is to line yourself up with the losers, God’s enemies and the world’s demon-possessed politicians.
Ezekiel 36:26 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a new, soft heart.”
Ezekiel 11:19 “I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within them and take the stony heart out.”
I took the pictures below in the deserts of Southern Africa.
Psalm 63:1 “O God, my soul thirsts for you; my flesh longs for you in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
Edition 220. August 13th 2014
What is really going on now?
What is really going on now?
Today the mass media is true to the voice of its slave-god, Satan, and created confusion, distortion and a host of biased lies. The world’s mass- media has and is raping you. It is destroying and preparing its worshippers for hell.
The word “journal” means “to inform”. This is not the agenda of the mass-media. It is to change you, remake you and fashion you into a world citizen.
This edition is an attack on the mass- media but is also about where we are today on the grand prophetic map. This edition is the good news of God’s truth in this day.
The wonderful world of truth and peace:
The voice of our God is the essence of truth; it is alive and full of the fruit. Did you get that? It is alive. Or should I say it has the potential to be alive in your heart. Without the life-giving Spirit at work it is nothing but a dead letter, just like the Koran, CNN, the BBC, and Shakespeare etc.
Our Master’s voice produces deep peace when applied and obeyed. It is clean and holy.
Isaiah 26:3 “You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You.”
Psalm 119:165 “Great peace have those who love your word.”
What incredible promises those are especially in this time. “Perfect peace” and “Great peace.” But I hope you see the conditions involved.
The deceptive world of lies and error:
The devil is a beautiful smooth-talker and most people receive his words without even knowing it.
You must understand the mass-media. It is alive. It’s not a living organism as such, but its spirit and god is alive. The being behind the media is an evil god backed by a host of demons. The central tool of the mass-media is deception. In most cases the journalists can’t see it themselves. They are blind puppets of their god.
To make and re-create you into a world citizen, the living media must re-program your thinking and remove from you God-created values and virtues. The living media uses the smokescreen of “This is the way of the world, which is therefore right and okay. All will be well with you if you follow us! It all seems reasonable and right.”
But with God’s word removed from society, law, education, value-systems, entertainment and the like, everything is variable and left to the god of the world to create his counterfeit world-peace.
There’s an easy way to know if you are on the right track. Do you have deep inner peace in the centre of your heart? Do you have all the fruits of the Spirit of God springing up in your life?
►If you could have world-peace now, God and Satan would have to make peace. There is more profound truth wrapped up in that statement than you will see in a long time. Of course this is a meaningless statement to most, because they can’t see either.
If you can’t see or understand your enemy after God has given you the methods and ability to operate in discernment of spirit, and spiritual warfare – you are your enemy’s victim already.
►You must understand that Satan’s end game is the deceptive counterfeit of God’s. This is world-peace! But one ends in hell and the other in world peace forever.
Surely you’re not so stupid to believe that the media wants the best for you and wants you saved, set free, holy and ready for heaven?
The media has never met their boss, Satan face to face! They will soon, but it will be too late then.
Understand that Satan’s world-peace is world domination and control with freedom and liberty gone. If you do not understand what is going on you are in danger of being deceived in a much larger way.
Objectivity, bias and persuasion:
The media is infuriating indeed. I used to pray for the media to see the truth. How wrong I was. We need to apply spiritual warfare and pray to confuse and confound their wisdom and also that people see through them. We must pray for individuals with the media to be saved and come out of the beast’s mouth.
There was a time when many nations were under God in some way or form. In that situation, the media reflected the authority above them. That has all long gone.
These issues are all spiritually charged and becoming more so!
For your spiritual health you need a reliable news source. The word of God must be above you filtering down into you. In this day, you can’t live with your head in the sand. You must be opinionated. You must take sides. If you don’t you will take the wrong side by default, God and Satan will see to it!
If you can’t see the biased agenda of the media, you are one with it and will feed off it. I know pastors who love the media. They regularly go to the movies; they love the world’s entertainment. They are blind and then presume to be doing God’s work!
Proverbs 25:26 “A righteous man who falters before the wicked is like a murky spring and a polluted well.”
Isaiah 41:11-13 “Behold, all those who were incensed against you (Israel) shall be ashamed and disgraced; they shall be as nothing, and those who strive with you shall perish...Those who war against you shall be as nothing, as a nonexistent thing. For I the Lord your God will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘fear not, I will help you.’”
How does indoctrination occur?
In most cases you need to do nothing. Just give yourself to the media – that’s it!
How does the influence of the media work? It travels from your ears or eyes or both into your head and then either hits a filter or goes right into your head and heart, becoming part of your make up. The filter is God’s word cemented by the Spirit of God in your mind and heart. It is only there if you have consciously, deliberately put it there!
Most Christians have no filter keeping the devil’s world and influence out!
Biblical prophets were not a popular bunch. In fact they were hated by some. Today those who proclaim the messages of the prophets are also not loved and for the same reason. And what is that? Well, it’s simply because prophets and teaching of Bible prophecy sheds God’s light on the darkness of the world. The end of the world’s comfort zone is the message – and people don’t like that!
Gradualism is the method. Bring in moral and virtue-change gradually and keep it up.
Satan’s prophets today are the mass-media. They are your big enemy!
Only once you see them as your enemy, can you see through them. While they are your friends, you will never be delivered from them or their power.
The agenda of the agents of Satan – the mass media:
If the world system is alive and ruled by a god, that changes everything. Truth is always the primary casualty of war, but even more so when dealing with Satan. This is where we are right now. God’s truth stands supreme like a huge pillar in the Temple, while all around, evil, sin, error, and deception swim in a doomed sea.
The agenda of the media is to break down and change borders, barriers and boundaries of God and to encourage the breaking of godly restraint so that you can be a true world-citizen, a child of the devil.
Imagine the homosexual CNN news reporters as your guides and informers. Some of them have used CNN to “out” themselves and others openly flaunt their sexuality on the channel.
And what about Wolf Blitzer? I really like him, but the “wisdom” of his grey hair is a lie, because he keeps pushing for a “proportional response” by Israel to Hamas! What rubbish! These are voices echoing the will of Satan from the abyss.
And what about Ben Wedeman, CNN’s Middle East expert? He is a puppet of the world, but a puppet with a difference. Ben, you are one of the very few international journalists who will soon be truly saved! Ben, my friend, you will soon become my brother in Messiah, but it will be at great expense to your belief system. There is much you will have to forsake. May I ask all our prayer warriors around the world to pray for the salvation of CNN’s Ben Wedeman.
Hopefully as we move forward into these exciting end times, many mass- media journalists will forsake their media empires and get saved.
The media’s agenda is to change you. It is to blind you to all that is of the true and living God. It is to remove Godly virtues from your life. It is to remove and ridicule God’s judgement on sin and evil. It is to remove God’s warnings. It is to make you one of their devil-made masses! It is to ridicule and cast down the Bible.
Isaiah 59:14 “...Truth is fallen in the street.”
The agenda can be seen by simply looking at the Biblical principles and truths they have cast down. If it’s not a Bible issue the world’s mass media would not have interest one way or the other.
The agenda of God:
God’s agenda is all that is good, right, holy and pure. God is working to bring these things about in those who are His. In the midst of our crooked, perverse and evil world, our Lord is working wonderfully in His children saved by and through the cross and shed blood of Messiah.
I don’t expect the media to present God’s agenda. But their big tragic mistake is to come against God’s agenda as they present the devils.
Don’t be fooled by numbers. The Bible itself shows that the numbers of those who get saved will be few compared to the lost. Make sure you are on the right side!
Some Media Bible verses:
The following few verses are powerful indeed. You must know them well, especially in this day and in the context of the media.
Proverbs 28:4 “Those who forsake the law (word of God) praise the wicked.”
Matthew 6:22-23 “The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore when your eye is good, your whole body also is full of light. But when your eye is bad, your body also is full of darkness; therefore take heed that the light that is in you is not darkness, how great is that darkness.”
Psalm 101:3 “I will set nothing wicked before my eyes; I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cling to me.”
Romans 6:16 “Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness?”
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.”
Isaiah 52:7 “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news...who proclaims salvation, who says to Zion, ‘Your God reigns’”.
So, what is really going on?
The world thinks that the Arab /Israeli conflict (and it sub-conflicts) are about land for peace, or about returning so-called stolen land to the Palestinians. They think it’s about the poor Arabs being subjugated by Israel. They think it’s about a two- state solution. They think it’s about what the media says it’s about.
Give the Palestinians what they want, and we will have world peace, they claim!
How unprepared Europe has become and how successful the media has been in brainwashing and blinding them to truth.
How far America has drifted from its faith-backbone!
And of course, how far the whole world has gone into the very clutches of the devil, led by the mass- media!
God is not sitting on the fence!
Has your church taught you what the Bible has to say about Gaza, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Russia? Has your church taught you about arising anti-Semitism worldwide?
Has your church taught you about the soon coming world economic collapse, the proposed reform of the EU to include the western Muslim leg? Has your church taught you about Egypt and Jordan in prophecy?
Putin’s move on Crimea was bad. His move on Ukraine was bad, his move on flight MH17 was bad, but his country loves him and thinks he is good. (He has an 80% popularity rating!) The west has hit the bad man with sanctions. Putin has hit back with sanctions against sanctioning countries. These sanctions involved mostly agricultural products, but are already spreading to travel and transportation.
Do you know who the big looser will be in all of this? It will be Russia and the bad man. You see, Russia was in a financial semi-crisis before all of this. Their economic growth has been falling. Now these sanctions will dramatically affect the economy much more. Inflation is already spiralling while the Russian market falls hard.
Do you see what I see? Suddenly, out of the blue the “hooks” of Ezekiel 38:4 have appeared! God says here that He will put “hooks in the jaws” of this great empire (Russia and allies) and will draw them into the land (Israel).
The reason is found a few verses on. Ezekiel 38:12 “You will come to take plunder, booty, livestock and goods and silver and gold.” (vs13.)
Do you see WW111 developing? Who would have thought that Russia would come seeking produce, agricultural goods and silver and gold representing economic wealth? Who would have thought that this lot would arrive on the world stage so quickly?
What are they fighting for?
If you listen to the mass-media Israel is the occupier, and the aggressor. If you listen to God, the Palestinians are the occupiers and the aggressors!
This question also contains the answer of who wins. If you listen to God, Israel wins!
If you listen to the mass-media they will tell you that Islam seeks peace and coexistence. But they seek domination and control. Conquest rather than compromise is the goal of Islam, but the blind media won’t tell you that. God will!
It’s all a war for your mind and soul! Some of the most momentous lies in history are being perpetuated now by the mass-media. The notion that Israel at some time in history forcibly displaced the Arabs of Palestine is the greatest lie in world history. The media rages in favour of this giant lie!
You can’t love God without loving His word and His plans for the Jewish people. If you say you do love our Lord, but not His plans for the Jewish people, you are either deceived or a blind liar who actually loves your own words and yourself supremely.
Today we are in a world where “multitudes, multitudes are in the valley of decision” (Joel 3:14.) There are spiritual forces at work and intensifying all the time, which most people are not even vaguely aware of. We are in a world where the opinions of the masses are at war with God.
I don’t know about you, but I feel the pressure growing all the time. I feel it; I see it and it causes me to repent again and again and to seek deeply, the things of God again and again.
Please understand that if you do not have a personal, active, alive relationship through the new birth, your opinions are worthless and valueless and empty.
A terrible example!
Genesis 25:32 “Esau said, ‘Look I am about to die; so what profit is this birthright to me?’” This man who becomes the father of the Arab people despised his birthright. He was full of arrogance towards God’s scheme of things. He sold his birthright to Jacob, and then tried to get it back again.
Today this situation is playing out in Israel. The message is, do not mess with God! Value, treasure, protect, nourish and love your birthright. It has enormous, incredible, magnificent, eternal consequences.
Do not take sides with the one who disrespected God and sold his birthright and is now fighting the Jews to get it back!
The place of safety in this day is the Word of God.
Purpose for life can only come in and through God’s plan for you.
The world’s governments, the mass-media and in fact almost every aspect of society have declared war on God and His word. The boss of the world-citizen speaks and the world falls in line. Our Lord is speaking now and we must fall in line with Him.
I took this picture from a chopper flying over the Dragon’s Back in the Drakensberg Mountains.
Psalm 36:9 “In Your light we see light.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
Edition 219. August 6th 2014
All about judgment:
All about judgment:
Malachi 3:18 “Then you shall again discern between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not.”
The issues of today are defining of the prophetic time we are in.
Today most of the church is an ineffective dead duck. Its pastors and leaders are excellent propagators of Satan’s “dance in the dark with the world.” They have produced a flock of puppets of the world.
As we charge forward into the early stages of end-time prophetic fulfilment there are many things we must know very well and be sure of. There are many things we need to judge. Some of these things we must judge for our own benefit and others that we must judge to take a larger stand on certain issues.
Amongst your greatest enemies are those who say “Do not judge.”
One of the biggest lies in town is “Do not judge.” Many ignorant people, saved and unsaved have seen or heard about some verse somewhere that says something like that. The spirit of pride in them jumps on the bandwagon and now you have a bunch of blind puppets participating in this dangerous deception.
Matthew 7:1 “Judge not that you be not judged.”
This verse above is the one! But what does it really mean? In the original, the verse has a “continuous tense” aspect to it. Quite simply it means that we should not get into a continuous judgment of people in which we put them down and elevate ourselves. It is all about being self-righteous, proud and arrogant on a continuous basis.
It does not mean don’t judge between right and wrong, truth and error or even certain people.
Here is “judgment” from our Lord’s point of view:
John 5:30 “I can of My own self do nothing. As I hear I judge; and My judgment is righteous because I do not seek My own will, but the will of the Father who sent me.”
John 7:24 “Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.”
1 Corinthians 2:15 “The spiritual man judges all things, but he himself is judged by no one.”
So, we see now that there’s much more to the subject.
Who must judge?
1 Corinthians 2:15 “The spiritual man judges all things, but he himself is judged by no one.
You don’t want a little kid running around with a loaded firearm. The verse above says it is the “spiritual man” who is to judge. Obviously this relates to the bigger issues of life and where other people are involved.
As far as we ourselves are concerned personally, we must all judge ourselves against the word of God.
2 Corinthians 13:5 “Examine (judge) yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Prove yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Yeshua the Messiah is in you, unless indeed you are disqualified?”
1 Corinthians 11:31“For if we would judge ourselves we would be not judged.”
There are over 700 Bible verses dealing with our needs to judge!
So, all of us need to judge ourselves regularly against the word of God in faith and it is only the spiritually mature who are to judge “all things.”
What we must judge:
Quite simply we must judge all the things that the Bible commands us to judge. Most believers today are ignorant of their Bible except of course for “Do not judge!”
The most important and biggest thing is doctrine. Contrary to popular belief, the Bible has plenty to say on this and it is extremely strong! It must be the cause of separation. Did you know that? Here are some shocking verses for you:
2 Timothy 3:5 “Having a form of godliness, but denying its power, from such turn away.”
1 John 4:1 “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”
Romans 16:17 “Now I urge you brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.”
1 Corinthians 1:10 “Now I plead with brethren by the name of our Lord, Yeshua, that you all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and judgment.”
We must judge current affairs. We must judge the moral issues of our day. We must speak God’s word into these things and be separate from the evils of the world. We must judge into the most important issue of our day, which is Israel, Jerusalem, the Jews and God’s word on the issues.
The terrible danger of not judging:
Matthew 12:30 “He that is not with Me is against Me.”
Isaiah 59:8 (A Psalm of separation from God). “The way of peace they have not known, and there is no justice in their ways; they have made themselves crooked paths; whoever takes that path shall not know peace.”
Why is it that not judging is so dangerous? It is simply because God requires that we do. You will be wide open to all manner of error, false doctrine and other garbage if you do not judge rightly.
In this day we are seeing an outpouring of deception, which our Lord warned against many times. One of the major characteristics of the end time scenario is deception.
But more than that we are also in a world of moral collapse, where Biblical virtues are being attacked and thrown out. If you do not judge / discern into these situations, you are complicit by your silence and a spineless push-over for the devil. He will capitalise on your capitulation and you will regret it forever!
Let me share with you a terrible example from hell itself. I know this individual who believes that all people want peace. He believes that peace is the big thing and everything must be bent and twisted so that world peace can be created! Sounds good hey?
►If it is possible to have world peace now, God and Satan would have to make peace! Think about that for a while. Peace will never come to this world until the world’s “peace-maker”, Satan is destroyed.
Here is the only way to world peace. Do you see that peace of any description, especially world peace can only be achieved through the cross of Messiah?
Colossians 1:20 “He has reconciled all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of the cross.” Anything or anyone that has not gone through the work of the cross is impure.
The safety of judgment:
Psalm 37:30 “The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom, and his tongue talks of justice.”
When you are in a world that has borders and barriers, you feel safe, unless you’re a skydiver!
The one who knows experientially the judgment of God is pure and of great value in God’s hands. Taking God’s word and judging yourself in line with it, will make you different, glorious, wonderful, safe, secure, confident and give you great insight into so many things. God Himself will open to you the secrets of His wisdom.
The word in your heart is your greatest comfort and security. Inviting the word into every aspect of your life is the best thing you can ever do. Apart from the safety it creates, it gives you confidence to go forward, knowing that you are clean and holy.
In fact holiness, righteousness and judgment are synonymous in many respects.
I warn you:
What you believe and allow into your life now in terms of the Middle East situation is a rising fence between heaven and hell. It is all a deadly, dangerous spiritual conflict that most people are blind to. If you are blind to a very big enemy, you are in trouble.
There are very big judgements coming from God on the whole world in relation to these things very soon. You had better be on the right side! We are in a situation where God is pouring out His grace and goodness on those who are His. He is also delivering “strong delusion” on those who are not with Him.
Please bear in mind that there is no middle ground. Our Lord says, “If you are not with Me, you are against Me. Do you want to be against God in these days?
You must know your Bible well in these days. You must see with spiritual eyes and you must see the hosts of demons at work to bring you to great success with the god of the world. If you can’t see spiritual forces at work you are in danger and you know what you must do to get spiritual eyes.
Your biggest enemy:
You feed from your biggest enemy every day! Of course its fine to get the news in the broader sense from the mass media, but most people have no idea at all that they are dealing with Satan himself in his “angel of light,” disguise!
The most dangerous people on earth today are the journalists, editors and bosses of the mass media. They are driven by disguised gods, and demons to influence and change you. I will have much more to say about this in the next edition.
It is the Godly, the strong and those who are right with God who judge rightly all the time. It is the spineless and weak who do not judge.
You must be different! Not in the energy of the flesh, but by and through the Spirit of God working in you. What you tolerate and what you allow into your life speaks volumes.
2 Corinthians 6:17 “Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you.”
I took this picture in spectacular Namaqualand. This area springs to life with billions of wild flowers for a short time over an area stretching more than 1000 kms.

Edition 218. July 30th 2014
Images of Israel:
Images of Israel:
For a change, especially at this time, I’ve designed this edition as a visual representation and tribute to the Israeli Defense Force.
The purpose of this edition is again to show my own personal rock-solid predilection in favour of God’s word for Israel and to identify myself and the Prophetic Scroll unambiguously with God’s word in this regard.
Amos 9:15 “I will plant them (Jews) in their land, and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord your God.”
Psalm 129:5 “Let them all be confounded and turned back who hate Zion.”
Some quick definitions that I will refer to:
●Déjà vu, means, “already seen” or that “Been there before” feeling.
●Jamais vu, means, “Never seen before”, or “not recognised.”
●Presque vu, means, “almost seen” or, “on the tip of recognition.”
All my life, even before I had been to Israel, I was in the “Presque vu” camp. I knew all about Israel. My mother had brought me up with a love for Israel and the Jews. I could always “see” Israel in my mind’s eye.
Then when I went there the first time, I had a dramatic experience. I can only describe it as a powerful Déjà vu. I had the sense that that I had been there before and everything was familiar. On top of this Déjà vu, I had a powerful Presque vu feeling as well, realising that I was on the edge of eternity, looking towards many powerful things to come.
I realised pretty quickly that I was seeing with a spiritual eye and seeing things from God’s point of view. Especially around Jerusalem, I had a powerful sense of excitement. I saw in my mind’s eye, terrible war, conflict and destruction. I “saw” the pride and resulting blindness of the Jews.
I “saw” the “eternal hatred” of the Arab people for the Jews. I saw their jealousy and their regret that they had “sold their birthright for a meal”.
In my mind’s eye I looked back to our Lord looking over Jerusalem with tears in His eyes, for His people who had rejected Him and what it would take to bring them to repentance.
Then just as quickly my fertile mind was in the future and I “saw” our Great King of Majesty, retuning to these dusty streets to welcome His now- repentant people, but not after great calamity, war and revolt.
The problem is that too many people in this world have only “Jamais vu” in their heads and can’t see or recognise anything at all relating to Israel. Their deceived teachers have taught them nothing of the Lord’s compassion for His people in the past and their dramatic coming to salvation in the near future.
Some people are just on the edge, in a world of “Presque vu” – on the tip of recognising God’s great plans for Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews.
The big enemy of Presque vu and Déjà vu is “Jamais vu” as perpetrated by the world’s mass media. They are the true enemies of God and friends of the world. As such they can’t see any of God’s plans for Israel. Their job is to inform the people, but because of their blindness, they do so with error, satanic prejudice and miss-information.
Israel’s journey has been like no other – it is almost at its most magnificent and dramatic conclusion! It’s been a journey of rebellion, obedience, love, punishment through wars, with all the odds stacked against her. But God has been there and still is there for her.
So with this in mind, I want to present and share with you some images of Israel in conflict now. These have been taken by some top press photographers. They reveal times of gravity, severity and drama.

Israel, be strong and courageous, the near future is going to see intensifying conflict. Satan will turn up the heat as he sees you open your eyes to your Messiah of Glory – Yeshua.
These are dramatic days of destiny and the unfolding of God’s plans and the attacks of the devil.
A tribute to the steadfastness and glory of Hashem, our God of glory:
Zechariah 8:13 “It shall come to pass that just as you were a curse amongst the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you, and you shall be a blessing. Do not fear, let your hands be strong.”
Obadiah 1:10 “For your (Esau – a type of the modern Palestinians) violence against your brother Jacob (Jews) shame shall cover you, and you shall be cut off forever.”
Genesis 15:18 “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river Euphrates.”
Genesis 17:7-8 “I will establish My covenant between Me and you (Abraham) and your descendants for an everlasting covenant, also I will give to your descendants the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan as an everlasting possession and I will be their God.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
