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 287: November 24th 2015
Israel, the drama to end all dramas:
►Notice: Next week’s edition will include a major prophetic announcement.
Israel, the drama to end all dramas:
As the scroll of Holy Scripture opens up, it unveils the greatest drama of all time. From beginning to end there is nothing but monumental drama, all with a majestic consistent theme throughout.
You will only get glimpses of this glory if you cherry-pick Bible verses. When you see it all, as a completed picture – it can do nothing but leave you shattered and transformed! Of course, the only way you can do that is the old-fashioned way, reading the Bible from cover to cover and studying it under the auspices of the Holy Spirit.
It is extremely helpful to read the read the prophets and minor prophets.
Unfortunately, for most, it’s all still a rolled-up scroll, leaving them at the mercies of their own multitudes of opinions!
In numerous verses the Bible describes and plots these great end-time dramas. Most of these events occur in the seven-year tribulation period, but there are also many forerunners.
●It compares and rivals the second Exodus to the first. (Jeremiah 23:7-8).
●It says that this will be a time the prophets of old looked forward to. (Acts 3:24.)
●It describes the return of the Jews as a time of riches for the world, (Romans 11:12) and a time of “life from the dead”. (Romans11:15.)
●It will be a time when a valley of dry bones comes to life, which are the Jews coming to salvation. (Ezekiel 37:13-14, (Jeremiah 31:31).
●The Bible describes this as a time of unprecedented war and conflict like never before. It will be a time of spiritual war in the heavenly realms. It will be a time when hell opens her arms to receive untold billions. (Isaiah 14:9), (Daniel 12:1).
●It will be a time in which one third of the people in Israel will be killed. (Zechariah 13:8) It will be a time of war for Israel, Jerusalem and the Temple Mount.
●It will be a time when false prophets will construct massive evil doctrines to oppose Israel and the coming mass salvation of the Jews. Replacement theology will arise with supernatural power – the power of the devil and will be utilised by much of the church. (Romans 9 & 11).
●Many churches with evil doctrines under their belts will become sceptics, scoffers and mockers of God’s plans for Israel in these days. (2 Peter 3:4-6), (Jude1:18).They will “cast down the truth in the street” (Isaiah 59:14). God will cut them (wild olive branches) off as He did to the true olive branches. (Romans 11:22).
●It will be a time when God kills off some of the church with death. (Revelation 2:23) These will be churches that have come against God’s plans for Israel, mostly orthodox churches like the Catholics and Anglicans.
●It will be a time when nations stumble over Jerusalem, trying to divide it, and all being crushed in the process. (Zechariah 12:2-3)
●It will be a time when nations try to divide the land of Israel, which will bring war and not peace (Joel 3:2).
●It will be a time when the nations of the world will rally behind the Palestinians and their attempted theft of what God has given to the Jews. (Zephaniah 2:8-10).
●It will be a time when Israel will finally defeat and bring an end to the Palestinians. (Obadiah).
●It will be a time when many will mysteriously disappear in the rapture opening the doors for the tribulation period to begin.
Each one of these points above is a great drama on its own. We are now in the privileged position to be on the brink of it all coming to pass.
There is such drama from the garden to the fall, to father Abraham and his offspring the Jews the Arabs the church the synagogue the mosque. From the Exodus to the wilderness to the Promised Land there is nothing but drama! From Israel’s rebellions, captivities to her victories and from wars and mass persecutions to her dramatic second Exodus back to the land – pure drama! From Israel’s coming punishment and then God’s plan to bless and bring salvation to the world, through them, there is nothing but drama. The giant rift between the church and Israel, the reconciliation, the fulfilled purpose, - drama of dramas!
Most amazingly, God has laid out His entire plan for all to see. See it; believe it or not, it’s all coming to pass anyway, just as He said. You know the story; if all else fails – read the instructions! But the world buries its head in the sand!
Who’s the fool?
Image if you had a friend who has never lied ever about anything and who can see into the future. He told you that a particular thing will happen, and the whole world comes against this and criticises it. Then these things come to pass exactly as your friend said. Now, you tell me - who’s the fool?
Did you know God is in the blinding business? He blinds those that come along in all their pride with all their own great ideas.
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.”
Did you know God is also the building business? But when He builds He destroys too!
Jeremiah 1:10 “I have put my words in your mouth, see I have set you (Jeremiah) over the nations and the kingdoms, to root out and pull down, to destroy and throw down, to build and to plant.”
The same verse appears later on in Jeremiah 31:28, but here it is Israel, as God’s servant who does the destroying and building up.
If you try to make God fit into your ideas and obey you, especially in these big things which He has clearly spelt out, you are in trouble!
Proverbs 28:4 “If you forsake the law (word) of God, you will praise the wicked.”
How the West was won and lost:
The West, my friends was won by the people recognising, believing and accepting the word of the living God. The West is in the process of being lost for the exact opposite reason.
Islam is dark. True Christianity is light. Dark can’t overtake light. But if the light goes dim, the dark comes in automatically. In fact it has a God-given licence to do just that!
The West is being lost by stupid people who voted for their own destruction! If you remove the Bible and biblical principles from your world and then vote, you get the devil. You thought, trusted and believed in the goodness of man, and that he would ultimately make the right choice, even without God in the land and its institutions.
You kicked God out of your constitution and all your institutions. You trusted in the evil hearts of man (Jeremiah 17:9.) Because you were then blinded by God, you voted for a man who turned into a devil!
In deep dark spiritual blindness, all the nations of the world will again kick God’s word out. This time, rejecting His word on Israel! Again, the world will pay the price.
The price is Muslim terror.
National repentance will stop the emerging tragedy. But it’s been left very late and all signs are that it’s too late!
As pressure grows on Israel, God stirs and growls. But beware, O stupid nations, the growl is about to turn to thunder. From then on you want to run, but you can’t hide! Get your affairs in order; buy your little plot in the graveyard down the road.
The Muslim ideology of destroying the Jew and Christian, dominating and controlling the world has spread worldwide. It’s not just ISIS in Syria; it’s the ideology which is everywhere.
The world’s mass media has served Islam excellently by proclaiming and spreading the giant lie that Islam is peaceful and peace-loving. The media may condemn terrorism out of one side of their anatomy, but out of the other they blind the world to the truth.
The world’s mass media can’t see that Islam is inextricably linked to and part of the Quran. The world’s mass media can’t see that this is where the problem lies.
The world’s mass media is silent on the Quran’s hatred for Jews and Christians.
Why is the mass media silent on the 109 verses in the Quran calling Muslims to violence and war with “unbelievers?”
By the way, verses in the Bible commanding killing, never included any form of torture and were all part of a now closed dispensation. The Quran is open ended on all these torture and killing verses.
The Quran needs no radicalisation at all – it’s all there in plain sight, as any and all serious Muslims know. The big disconnect is between those who claim to be moderate Muslims and the Quran.
There’s a new version of the Quran out called “The study Quran” in which they try to explain away the verses commanding beheadings etc. They do a terrible job trying to justify it. They say that these verses are only relevant in a time of war. Beheadings, crucifixions amputations would be war crimes! Besides the Quran claims to be at war with “infidels” all the time!!
Here are a few verses from the Quran which you won’t see the mass media referring to:
2:191-193 “Fight and kill unbelievers until religion is Allah’s”
8:39 “Fight unbelievers until Islam reigns supreme.”
5:33 “Crucify or amputate the hands and feet of those make war against Allah and Muhammad.”
47:4 “Behead and slaughter the unbelievers; take others captive.” “Smite the infidel at the neck.”
In various other verses Jews and Christians are described as “apes, unbelievers, unclean idolaters, enemies of Allah, accursed, and much more.
Make no mistake, Islam is a worldwide ideology and agenda trying and succeeding to build Islamic states and to bring in Sharia domination and control by fear and force.
I don’t want to spend any more time on this vile subject, so just to say, this is the root of the real problem and the cause of Islamic terror worldwide.
Europe is already bowing to Islam in many respects and giving privilege to Muslims. The US will soon have to modify its liberty, behaviour and tolerance to placate the hatred of Islam.

Obama and his side-kicks, the mass media have misdirected you! They have pointed you away from the real problem.
The soon-coming glory of Israel:
In spite of Obama’s new antagonism to Israel, she has a spectacular, dramatic future. If you know what Bible prophecy predicts on an issue like this, should it make any difference to you? You see, it’s all coming about anyway! How much better to know what’s coming and adjust oneself accordingly.
You, my friends have the great privilege of knowing beforehand how it will all play out. You have the great privilege of adjusting and lining up your beliefs and actions with the word of the living God.
We all know that because of Israel’s rejection of her Messiah, God blinded her, leaving her in darkness, with a veil over her understanding. Have a look at these three incredible, amazing verses below:
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.” Verse24 “These (Israel) who erred in spirit will come to understanding and those who murmured will learn (true) doctrine.”
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.”
Isaiah 60:2-3 “Behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, (Israel) and His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.”
These verses speak of wonderful things, don’t they? Can you see the light? I can already see the light shining into the hearts of the Jewish people. Okay, there’s a long way to go, but here comes the light!
How can you participate in coming against Israel in any way, knowing how it is all going to play out? You can of course, if you are a Christian friend of the devil himself!
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.”
Keywords for you, Israel
The following paragraph is simply sections of verses relating to Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews, strung together:
You are to be a holy people. Open your hearts to your Jewish Messiah. The Lord has chosen you. You are a special treasure. You will be a light of salvation to the Gentiles. You are to shine and to roar; this is your time. You will arise from the valley of dry bones to the valley of decision for your Messiah. He has glorified you. (Isaiah 55:5, Acts 13:47 Deuteronomy 14:2). God has given you the land and the city for all time. Do not divide either of them.
A message to the Israeli Defence Force:
Deuteronomy 23:9 “When the army goes out against your enemies, then keep yourself from every wicked thing.”
Deuteronomy 23:14 “The Lord your God walks in the midst of your camp to deliver you and give your enemies over to you; therefore your camp shall be holy, that He may see no unclean thing among you, and turn away from you.”
Jeremiah 51:11 “Make the arrows bright! Gather the shields! The Lord has raised up the spirits of the Medes (Iran.)For His plan is against Babylon to destroy it...”
Israeli Defence Force (IDF) please take note of the verses above! You are now entering a new phase in your existence and survival. We know that God’s word reveals His favour upon you, but it’s not automatic. You must prepare yourselves now. Your military training and ability is excellent, but what about your hearts and souls?
Take note of the terrible verse below IDF! Do you want to be in the situation of this verse? I’m sure you don’t.
Judges 10:13-14 “You (Jews) have forsaken Me and served other gods, Therefore I will deliver you no more. Go and cry out to the gods which you have chosen; let them deliver you in your time of distress.”
Take note that the verse applies to a particular point in time. It is when “you are in your distress”. This time period is coming now.
IDF, you know as I do that many of you and your people at large are full of the worship of illegitimate gods. You must repent now! The favour of God will be upon you in your repentance. Yes you will make the right decisions, but make them fast and make them thoroughly and deeply!
Be strong and courageous IDF!
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.”
A banner for the nations::
Isaiah 11:11-12 “It shall come to pass in that day that the Lord shall set His hand a second time to recover the remnant of His people who are left...He will set up a banner for the nations, and will assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.” Verse 13: “The adversaries of Judah shall be cut off!”
A banner is big flappy thing in your face with a message written on it! In the verse above we see that our Lord is raising a banner for the nations of the world. What is written on it? Can you see the message?
The message is simple and plain. God will create a second Exodus bringing His Jewish people back to their land from the nations of the world.
But God is not doing this for fun. He is doing it for His great ultimate purpose of bringing the remnant of the Jews to salvation and gathering all the nations against her in one place for the great final destruction of all evil, sin and unrighteousness.
Zechariah 2:4-5 “Run speak to this young man, saying: ‘Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls because of the multitude of men and livestock in it. ‘For I’, says the Lord ‘will be a wall of fire around her, and I will be the glory in her midst.’”
Jerusalem’s amazing future is outlined in this verse above. Do you see that, Palestinians? Do you see that, world? Do you see what I see? – I see a wall of the Lord’s fire already burning around the walls of Jerusalem!
This edition is entitled, “Israel, the drama to end all dramas”. That, my friends is exactly what it will be. That’s exactly what is playing out right now. Bible prophecy has spelt it out and it’s happening just as proclaimed.
Let me give you the good news or the bad news! You do fit into the picture. You are one of the pieces of the giant jigsaw puzzle. Your choices will reveal exactly where you fit in, like it or not! Do you know that our Lord may be preparing rewards and a glorious eternal residence in everlasting peace with Him and the family of God for you right now?
Hebrews 12:1 “Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and run with endurance the race that is set us before us.”
2 Peter 1:11 “An abundant entrance will be supplied to you into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.”
Do you know that Satan may be preparing an abundant “cloud of witnesses” to welcome you? Isaiah 14:9 “Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming.”
You have before you great opportunities my friends, don’t squander them!
I took this picture with my Hasselblad fitted with an ultra-wide lens mounted on a tripod and the shutter controlled with a remote. This is a martial eagle.
Shalom and grow in grace!
Edition 286: November 18th 2015
The spirit world:
The spirit world:
In this edition I want to deal with an important issue. Most people don’t think so because they can’t see the world of demons, angels, the Spirit of God and Satan.
In fact the spirit world is very real indeed and although we can’t see them with our eyes, we most certainly do see the results of their works. The spirit world is going to become a lot more important as we head for major prophetic times.
In fact you are wall to wall spirit. If you were to step out of your body now, a spirit would be standing right there.
After resurrection you will live forever in a new body made up of spirit. It will be pure and holy, with all the impurities and faults removed. It will be a body that can manifest physically and then de-materialise at will. It will be a body with full, complete knowledge. You will know everything.
You will be a true time traveller and be able to travel at the speed of thought. You will not be bound to any of the laws of physics although you will be able to transcend both the physical and spiritual. You will be eternally young and totally healthy in every way possible.
You will be given authority over various situations or tasks or even other worlds.
Talk about putting science fiction to shame! My friends this is what is coming.
(Please see edition 197 HERE for more)
Spirits of truth and error:
God is a Spirit, Satan is a spirit and you are a spirit. All will live forever. All have doctrines and belief systems associated.
1 John 4:6 “We are of God. He who knows God hears us, he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.”
Note in the verse above that both truth and error are spirits! They manifest in the natural and physical realms, but they are essentially spirits. This means that they are alive! Obviously this also means that one is of the living God and the other of the devil.
The spiritual forces of truth and error have enormous power of persuasion, because they have real spirit beings behind them. This is why the unsaved and the unequipped Christian are sitting ducks for the devil.
You may know the following verse well, but please read it again and take note of the implications:
Ephesians 6:10-17 “Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armour of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood , but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age and against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places...take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God...”
The verse goes on to describe the main pieces of spiritual armour which the believer, especially in these end days of intensifying spiritual conflict, must wear. Three of these items are defensive and one, the sword, is offensive. But note what the sword actually is - it is the “word of God.”
So we are to go on the attack, using the word of God and not our own ideas or those of the mass- media and the world. Yes we do all in love, but sometimes that love must have a severe dimension to it. Cutting out cancer is painful, but is actually love in action.
The Bible commands us to “consider the goodness and severity of God” (Romans 11:22)
Today a huge number of churches are big trouble. They have capitulated to the god of this world. So many of them have rejected the fullness of the baptism of the Spirit, which includes the gifts the armour and the spiritual weapons needed to stand against the devil.
Their congregations are getting smaller as people fall away, while other spirit-filled churches are growing fast.
Have you ever noticed that those who come against the baptism in the Spirit never talk of or teach on spiritual warfare and the use of spiritual weapons?
Those who come against or are neutral to the baptism in the Spirit are always silent on casting out demons. You will rarely hear them address anything to do with spiritual warfare simply because they are blind to it all and ill-equipped to deal with it.
Mark 16:17 “These signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues.”
The teaching of these spirit-less Christians is always dead. There is no spark, no real life, its dead letter and it’s boring. Their teaching is never really pre-emptive or prophetic but in most cases backward looking. It’s always analysis after the fact.
The shocking thing revealed in the word of God about the church is that only a small part of it is doing just fine. The rest of the church is in great trouble as revealed in our Lord’s messages to the seven churches in the opening chapters of the Revelation.
Here are two verses that are a bit of a shock!
Revelation 2:13 “I know your works and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is...”
Revelation 2:24 “To you I say and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as who do not have this doctrine, and who have not known the depths of Satan...”
Do you see that these churches actually have a close identity with Satan himself! Of course they can’t see that, but God can!
Please don’t go chasing after angels, demons or any spirits all over the place. Don’t go looking for spirits behind every item of furniture. Just be aware of them. Let God show you what is needed.
Do not receive everything that comes dressed up in religiosity! Beware of many (not all) of the Youtube ministries. Some of them are deadly. Some appear to be so good but there are always tell-tale signs of false spirits at work.
These are normally seen in people who use manipulation to gain a following.
1 John 4:1 “Do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”
2 Corinthians 11:14 “Satan himself transforms himself into and angel of light.” (Context is ministers.)
The Spirit of truth:
The Spirit of truth will always manifest in you in pure holiness. He is a Holy Spirit. He will always have the characteristics revealed in the Bible. He will always be full of good fruit.
When He the Spirit of truth is at work there will liberty, freedom and peace. When the spirit of error is at work there will be bondage, evil, sin. James 3:15 “This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic.
If the Spirit of truth is in you, active and alive, you will always have a forward-looking orientation. You will always have an exciting dimension to your life, because our Lord will be showing you things to come! You will always be anchored and balanced in the truth.
John 16:13 “When He the Spirit of truth has come, He will guide you into all truth...and He will tell you things to come.”
My friends, the Spirit of truth is selective. He won’t share His truth with the devil. He won’t share or reveal to you His truth if He knows you won’t use and apply it.
Beware the spirit of Obama:
I’ve just noticed a subtle, but excellent example of what this edition is about, in US President Obama. He speaks with a forked tongue! He speaks pure rubbish, designed to appease the gods he serves and he most probably isn’t even aware of it.
Obama condemned the Paris terror attacks calling the perpetrators “terrorists”. Sounds good hey? But he said nothing of Islam or Muslims.
Yes they are terrorists, but that word is so nebulous and can refer to such a wide range of issues. You see, these were not just terrorists. They are people who love the jihad of the Quran!
Obama and his puppet, UK’s Cameron, speak the same ill-informed error coming right from the god of error. They repeatedly call Islam a religion of peace. If they took the trouble to look up what the Quran says in numerous places about killing the infidel, including beheadings and other such things, they would have a real tough time explaining it. So they lie!
They speak the words of the father of lies. They create an incorrect picture and understanding. They appease the very source of the trouble.
Please always remember that what Islam means by peace is the ultimate eradication of resistance!
What’s life all about?
Too many people look at their circumstances and say to themselves, “What’s life all about”? Life is making money buying some happiness for a while until it runs out and then doing it all again! People wonder why buying happiness never produces deep fulfilment.
It’s because whatever you can buy is essentially dead (unless you’ve just bought a puppy). All goods, even a red Ferrari is dead and empty. Your Ferrari can’t give you true deep love and comfort. It can only give five minutes of empty, shallow happiness. Even the Ferrari has no spirit – it’s dead.
How come very few very wealthy people have internal joy? Most people struggle to be happy and then they die. They say, “Surely there has to be more to life than this rat race to keep up with the rats next door – the Joneses.” The reason they will never find true deep joy is because they’re living for self and deep within the bowels of self is Satan! You can never satisfy Satan!
You see, Satan’s evil grows. It’s always hungry. It advances and it feeds on you and then advances some more. It eats into your very purpose for being. So like cancer, if you don’t remove it will kill you.
By the way, if anyone wants to buy me a red Ferrari (or any colour), I’ll say, thank you very much.
You were known before the foundations of this earth, says the Bible. What sort of madness is that? God knew you way back in the eternal past before you even thought of. Okay we can only superficially understand that, but stop and think about it for a moment.
If God knew you way back then, has He forgotten you now? Of course not! What this means is that God created you with a plan and purpose wrapped up in His will and plans. You are not some afterthought, you are not some afterbirth. You are not some random creation with no more meaning than a Walt Disney drawing.
If God knew you millions, billions trillions and quadrillions of years ago and here you are now walking around on this earth, that means you have incredible purpose to your life. You are much more than valuable and precious! You are part of an eternal plan that is just beginning.
So many people can’t see these things because they can only see the material, physical realm. They can only see the here and the now. They can’t see the reality of eternal spiritual life. They can’t see and don’t even believe that they are an eternal spirit!
1 Corinthians 6:19 “Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own.”
Next time you look in a mirror say hullo to the real you! Not that person looking back at you, the one you can’t see the real one who will live forever.
Next time you’re having a bad day, think about these things. Cast your thoughts way out into eternity. Cast your thoughts towards a future so majestic, spectacular, wonderful and eternal. Cast your thoughts way back to long before you were invented by God and remember that He knew you, was thinking about you; looking forward to meeting with you and coming to visit you in the most incredible home in the universe that He has made for you anyway.
All these things are coming.
If you don’t have eyes for the things of the Spirit, you are vulnerable and will lack endurance and stability.
Many people are and will continue to fall away from the truth in these days. They are being led by spirits they can’t see and can’t deal with because their stupid minister wearing a frock hasn’t taught them or prepared them.
1 Timothy 4:1 “The spirit expressly says that in the latter times, some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons.”
There’s a stirring in the air!
Right now spirits are becoming restless. They’re stirring and arising for battle. There is war in the heavenly realm. It’s beginning to intensify. The terror attacks of recent days are just the beginning. We are now going to see many of these things go into high gear.
Europe and the US are the main targets. It is all Satan’s work.
Because of the very limited time that is left before the coming of the Lord, these things have to intensify now. The world is about to be rocked by unseen spirits, devils, demons and their servants.
It’s time for true believers to examine themselves, to check their faith-status, to get their lives right.
It is time to cast off the sins that beset and to walk in holiness. It is time to surrender every area of your heart to the Lord. Open every door of your heart and clean out the garbage and let the Holy Spirit flood in.
It is time to know who you really are. It is time to realise that you have an eternal plan, destiny and reason for being here now. The least you can do is repent for all known sin and freshly dedicate your life to our King of kings and Lord of lords.
It is time to humble yourself before the mighty God, fall on your face in surrender to Him. It is time to harden your hearts to all the schemes of the devil.
Do not fall asleep in the light (That was the title of a Keith Green song.) The light will not be here or not be clearly visible for much longer.
At this time, I give you warning. The spirits of evil and deception are going to begin major deceptive works.
The works of deception will be powerful, strong and completely convincing. There will be people arising within the church claiming to be the two witnesses. They will be supernaturally empowered by spirits of pride and evil.
There will be major deceptions of sight and sound and signs in the sky.
If you have been involved in the occult, you need to seek complete and full deliverance, because you will have doors open! If you know beyond any doubt that you are clean and free – well and good, but know that you will targeted again much more powerfully.
Jihad, terror, and even WW111 are before us, can you see it stirring?
Finally the big prize of the devil is Israel. We are on the cusp of huge dramas with Israel. The Spirit of God is about to bring them to punishment for all their rebellion, even the great sins of Israel’s capital of homosexuality – Tel Aviv, will be brought down.
Satan will use the Arab nations, Europe, the UN and the US to cause much harm to Israel, as prophesied in numerous verses. Also as prophesied, these nations will in the process, bring wrath upon themselves.
In the midst of all of this God will lift the veil from the Jewish remnant bringing them to salvation.
What incredible drama this all is!
The voice of the devil:
Beware the mass media! They are inspired, orchestrated and led by Satan himself. They don’t even know that, but it is true. They are about to fulfil their tragic, deadly roles for which they were created. The mass media will be directly responsible for the biggest miss-information program, and all out lies the world has ever seen.
The mass media will contradict God again and again, making a mockery of His word. All the big-ticket items of God’s word they will come against. These are things needed for a strong nation under God. The attacks will be against God’s word on abortion, capital punishment, homosexuality and LGBT, discipline of children, the call of the Jews to salvation, their return to and ownership of all of the land of Israel, the dividing of land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem and much more.
Here’s a simple example of how the voice of the devil has infiltrated modern thinking: Today, the media says that homosexuals were born that way. No they weren’t! At some point they opened some doors to the devil in which there was vulnerability, then Satan and demon forces came in and took possession.
That’s how it works. That’s why these people can’t get free. There are a million hallmarks and characteristics of demon possession and activity in homosexuals. They need deliverance to be free.
The media will spear-head all of Satan’s plans.
Here is verse that will include the media. They will show and tell of these things. They will be involved in spreading the great deceptions of the end-times.
Revelation 13:13-14 “He (antichrist) performs great signs, so that he makes fire come down from heaven upon the earth in the sight of men, and he deceives those who dwell on the earth by these signs, which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast...”
Made by Israel, Made by Islam:
I saw a cartoon the other day with the above title. It got me to thinking. How come Israel has invented, constructed, made, manufactured, grown and produced more good stuff for the good of the whole world than any other nation on earth?
How come Islam has done nothing for the good of the world at all ever? If you can think of one thing, please let me know! Of course Islam has murdered as many as the Catholic church. Islam has created and manufactured great numbers of suicide vests, terror weapons, misery, domination and control of people’s minds and actions.
Bless Israel, you’ll be blessed. Curse Israel and you’ll be cursed, says the Bible. This verse and other like it show and demonstrate that God has His favour on what is of Him in the first place. That which comes from the Spirit of God has success and abundance attached to it.
1 John 3:2-3 “...We know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.”
There is such great glory coming to those who endure to the end. There are so many who will fall away who need not. They will be full of eternal regret.
I think the following few verses are amongst the greatest in the Bible. How amazing is this, and its all true!
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 "We do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction is but for a moment and is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things are seen, but at the things which are not seen, for the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal."

Shalom and grow in grace!
Edition 285: November 11th 2015
As real as gravity and as unseen as gravity are the colliding worlds of God and Satan. The affects of kingdoms in conflict are what we need to observe and know how to deal with.
We do know that as we move on closer to the coming of our Lord, the coming downfall of Satan comes closer too, and the upheavals, the attacks and the troubles intensify. (Revelation 12:12)
Almost all colliding worlds stem from Satan’s attacks on the Bible. This is essentially what this edition is about.
Colliding ideologies, religious beliefs, and entire kingdoms in conflict are rooted in the spiritual. In fact even the very divisions within the church are rooted in spiritual conflict and Satan’s attacks on the word of God.
We are going to look primarily at the enormous problems created by miss-translated words in various translations of the Bible.
Right up front let me say that there is one translation, the New International Version (NIV) that you should never use. Throw it out if you have one.
Some translations are much better than others. Some have only one or two minor, unimportant errors and some like the King James Version are riddled with giant errors as you will see.
There is only one Bible that is pure and true, all the way through, which is called the Holy Spirit anointed cannon of scripture, and that is the original texts in Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic, of which there are some 20,000 surviving manuscripts.
Some translation, like the King James Version has been translated and revised numerous times from the Latin, then into old English and contains slanted Catholic church doctrine within it.
I have found through my studies that the New King James Version (NKJ) is the best of the bunch. It dismisses the King James Latin translation all together, but keeps a bit of the “flavour” of it. It does have a few minor unimportant translation errors or differences. The New King James is a word for word translation from the original texts and is therefore a good study Bible.
Our friend Alan Horvath uses a number of translations, but does his word studies out of the Hallelujah Scriptures, which expands on the original word meanings. This is an excellent study Bible, but will rock your boat.
A translation error may be of no consequence at all if it’s a minor issue. But a single word miss-translated can create an entire false doctrine. In fact sometimes a single word wrongly translated can lead masses to hell and shipwreck entire nations, as you are about to see.
Just think about this: If the word of God is exactly that, wouldn’t it be a prize target of the devil? And you would be quite right. Satan has resisted and tried to change God’s word right from the Garden. Do you remember what Satan said to Eve? He said, “Has God said you shall not eat of every tree in the garden?” Questioning, resisting and changing God’s word has always been his ace trump.
Of course there is one very, very big issue in all of this. We as believers have the privilege of inviting the very author of the scriptures into our hearts through the baptism of the Spirit. This opens to us a whole new world and transforms the Bible from dead letter to living word, giving us supernatural guidance.
How deception works:
What causes deception? The attacks are going to come like it or not, but there are some keys we need to bear in mind.
Deception is always on a collision course with true, established biblical doctrine, inspired and led by the Spirit of God.
Deception and false doctrine is a slippery slope! Once you get onto it, you are slipping and sliding away. I know a number of people who were doing well in their walk with our Lord. They opened a door just a little and Satan kicked it wide open and they slipped away into metaphysics and all sorts of other trash. Now they condemn the truth and exalt the error!
2 Timothy 4:3-4 “The time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers and they will turn their ears away from the truth.”
Deceptive doctrines appeal to pride. Many people have a secret pride in their lives. They are proud of their religious standing, or their own intellect, or even what the Lord has done for them. Many people have a secret desire to control and dominate others. These people will always have many doors open to being deceived.
Self will, self elevation, pride of life, and self importance, are all conditions which open doors to deception and even the demonic. Failure to close those doors solidly will always leave you vulnerable.
Being ill-equipped to deal with spirits of error will also leave you vulnerable. Rejection of the gifts of the Spirit leaves you wide open to defeat. Ignorance of the scriptures in these days abounds and is so very dangerous.
Bear in a mind this very powerful, far reaching verse: “God resists the proud and gives grace to the humble.” (James 4:6) If you are a believer and full of pride, God is resisting you and you are blind. You are a target for deception. If God is resisting you, you are wrecked.
Many believers have an open outright arrogance to them, which has never been defeated or brought down by God. They are open receptacles’ for deception. Many people get totally discouraged, beaten down and defeated. They are in many cases also open for deception.
Primarily, the cause is pure pride and arrogance. With some it’s in your face and with others it’s secret, subtle and hidden behind all sorts of masks.
Deception comes on the wings of false doctrine. When a doctrine is taken out of its biblical context it can become false. When any doctrine is presented by a man or woman full of self-will, it’s dangerous and can morph into false doctrine.
When any doctrine is taken out of the hands of the Holy Spirit or a person not surrendered fully to the Holy Spirit, it has the potential of going off track.
Doctrine becomes polluted and false when used by an ignorant person, or a novice or someone without much knowledge of the entirety of the scriptures.
Some people have a normal, natural propensity for false doctrine. They are eternally gullible and will believe anything dressed up in religiosity. They have un-surrendered hearts.
We must know that the Bible and all true doctrines are under primary attack right now. As a believer, you must know your Bible in these days and you must know the author, the Holy Spirit personally.
Have a look at these shocking verses:
Galatians 1:8 “If we or an angel from heaven preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.” False doctrine brings a curse!
Romans 16:17 “I urge you brethren, note those who cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine you have learned and avoid them.”
Be careful of new truth, or new revelation or new doctrines. New truth means the old truth was not sufficient all these years, and now you need to add to it and change it. Modernising truth never ever works!
Jeremiah 6:16 “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old (ancient) paths, where the good way is and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls.”
Do you think finding or changing Bible verses to accommodate homosexuality will ever work or be accepted by God? – If you do, you giant, blind fool!
Emphasising certain doctrines or truths at the expense of others will upset your spiritual balance – always.
Half truths make you a half-baked, gullible sucker with doors wide open to the devil.
Now let’s have a look at major translational errors in two versions of the Bible.
The errors of the King James Bible (KJV):
Firstly, there is a clear-cut cult who believes that only the KJV is the inspired actual word of God and all other translations are of the devil. The KJV onlyists are to be avoided. Of course there is nothing wrong with using this Bible for general reading etc. but there are enough translational errors to make it a dangerous study Bible.
Thou shalt not kill:
The KJV uses the phrase, “Thou shalt not kill” (Exodus 20:13). The original word for “kill” is “ratsach,” which means murder or homicide. There is a very big difference. Genesis 9:6 “If you shed man’s blood (murder) by man your blood must be shed.” That speaks of capital punishment. We see the same thing in Romans 13:4 “He is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practises evil.” Again, this is referring to capital punishment.
So now, if the KJV says, “thou shalt not kill”, we have an irreconcilable contradiction. Tragically, this single word mistranslated has been the actual source of the abolition of capital punishment movement worldwide. One word wrongly translated has led to many not being executed who should have been.
Most other translations say, “You shall not murder,” which is correct.
Now let’s do a slight detour and look at a modern heresy and false doctrine that has emerged out of this wrongly translated word:
Today there is a dangerous false doctrine doing the rounds called the Humane Gospel. It believes that God ordered His people to be vegetarians. They use this verse as one of their “proofs” saying that “thou shalt not kill” also refers to meat-eating.
So, if the Bible teaches that we should not eat meat, how come God ordered the eating of lamb at the Passover meal? (Exodus 12: 3-46). It is the Passover lamb, not the Passover cauliflower! How come God fed the children of Israel with manna and quail which is a bird? (Psalm 105:40, Exodus 16:13). How do you explain the following verse?
Romans 14:1 “Receive one who is weak in faith, but not to disputes over doubtful things, for one believes he may eat all things, but he who is weak eats only vegetables.
The funny thing is that the protagonists of the Humane Gospel are mostly angry men. Shouting to create manipulation is their method. They have to use manipulation and intimidation to get gullible people to fall for them. This is always a key in identifying ulterior motives.
Sorry, Humane Gospel and your protagonists of deception, you are WRONG, deceived and charging down a road indefensible in the Bible.
Deuteronomy 27:18 “Cursed be he who makes the blind (gullible) to wander out of the way of God. Bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of our Messiah.”
An important thing to remember in identifying deception and false doctrine is that the practitioners always use selected verses at the exclusion of others that contradict them. And they always use manipulation or intimidation to trap and control their victims.
Again do you see how one word wrongly translated can cause so much trouble?
The KJV uses the word Easter (Acts 12:4). The original word is “Pascha” meaning Passover. (Pesach in Hebrew.) If you are a regular reader, you would be well aware that Easter is the name of the Babylonian sex goddess, Ishtar. Easter is simply the English transliteration. Easter was designed by the Catholic church to be a floating convocation, so that it could be moved so as never to fall on Passover.
The reason for this was the hatred of the Catholic church for the Jews and all things Hebraic in origin. There is so much more to this, which I won’t get into now because it’s only part of our subject. I’ll give you a taste: Did you know Easter has its own number, which reveals very much? I’ll deal with that another time.
Here’s the big thing. If the KJV is the actual inerrant word of God, with no errors, do you think God would name the feast of commemoration of the cross, the whipping the torture and suffering of Messiah, after the goddess of sex? – You have to be mad in the head!
Tragically, this single word and its usage and meaning became part of the church’s secret hatred for the Jews through the ages. The blind church just swallows all the garbage originating from Babylon and Rome and they think they’re just fine!
The NIV also uses the word “Easter” instead of “Passover.”
If, like many most Rome-persuaded ministers you say, “we just use the name Easter”, please answer these verses:
Exodus 23:13 “Be circumspect and make no mention of the name of other gods, nor let it be heard from your mouth.”
Zephaniah 1:4 “...Against the inhabitants of Jerusalem, I will cut off every trace of Baal from this place, the names of the idolatrous priests, with the pagan priests.
►The secret cryptic clue: A witch in a wicker basket is coming very soon!
A falling away:
The KJV uses the word “A falling away” instead of “the falling away, from the original. This has major implication for the rapture of the church. “A falling away” could refer to many things including a falling away from the faith, which has become the presumption of the verse.
“The falling away” refers to a specific event. It has nothing to do with a church falling away from the faith, although that is happening in the denominations. Other verses suit that much better. “The falling away” refers to the actual rapture of the church, which will “fall away” fast from the earth! It should be “The departure.”
There are numerous other translation errors in the KJV, which have resulted in entire false doctrines or at least incorrect leanings.
The errors of the New International Version: (NIV.)
You should never use the NIV not for a moment. It is a true counterfeit Bible.
The NIV has 64,000 words omitted in total.
It yields to modernism, liberalism, and many modern evils. It removes the deity of Messiah. It is pro-abortion. The NIV attacks the Trinity, the virgin birth, eternal punishment, God’s call upon Israel, flesh theology, supports replacement theology through the use of the word Easter. (See KJV above)
The problems can be seen right up front in the translation committee who are made up of Anglicans, Lutherans, Methodist, Presbyterians and other spiritually dead ministers of denominations. “The first thought of the translators is to the thought of the writers and not the original texts.”
One of the translators is an open homosexual while an advisor is an active lesbian who has written books like “Is the homosexual my neighbour?” She says, “God is female, the mother of us all.”
The NIV uses some of the corrupt Alexandra manuscripts written by the blasphemer Origen and some of the Byzantine original manuscripts which are the truth.
Here are just a few of the major translational errors:
Luke 2:33 “Joseph and His (Yeshua) mother marvelled...” The NIV says, “The child’s father and mother...” This is a subtle removal of the deity of Messiah. Yeshua never had a human father!
Luke 1:15 “He will be filled with the Holy Spirit even from His mother’s womb.” The NIV says, “He will be filled, even from birth.” This presumes that life begins at birth and not in the womb! If life begins at birth and not in the womb, abortion is not murder!
Colossians 1:14 “We have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.” The NIV removes the word “blood”!
Luke 11:4 “Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.” The NIV omits “deliver us from the evil one.”
Revelation 11:17 “...The Lord God almighty, is the One who is and was and is to come.” The NIV omits “who is to come.”
I’m sorry; I get so angry even writing about this, so I’ll stop. I’ll just mention some of the other problems without going into them. If you are interested – look them up!
The NIV removes “Satan” from many verses. The NIV removes and changes the doctrine of hell in numerous verses. The NIV interferes with prophecy all over the place. The NIV changes many verses and omits some completely in the Revelation. The word “flesh” as it relates to the sin nature is removed throughout the NIV. The NIV refers to our Lord as he, instead of He in numerous places, obviously diminishing His deity.
The NIV is used as the pew Bible in most denomination churches. It is used by most denominational ministers. It is corrupt and rotten.
Can you get saved using these Bibles? You are not saved by a Bible or a church. You are saved by the work of the Holy Spirit, so yes of course you can get saved using almost any Bible. But after salvation you must pursue the truth!
Hosea 14:9 “...The ways of the Lord are right; the righteous walks in them, but transgressors stumble in them.”
Personally, I use the New King James version (NKJ) which many students of Greek and Hebrew believe to be the best of the bunch, with only a few minor unimportant errors. I also use other study Bibles as aids. By the way, I do most of my work the old fashioned way. I write thousands of notes, read books and study the physical Bible.
The glorious Menorah:
I love the sculptural, geometric form of the menorah. Many years ago I spent a long time making a large silver and gold menorah, which still stands in my lounge. But it is the symbolism that is really important.
The menorah symbolises light, wisdom, and divine inspiration. Six of the candle branches represent the knowledge and wisdom of man while the middle one represents the knowledge and wisdom of God, bringing enlightenment to man. The construction of the menorah is commanded in the Bible. It is obviously Hebraic in nature.
In the Revelation, our Lord is seen walking amongst the seven candles of a menorah, here representing the churches, as He pronounces spectacular commendation and condemnation on the churches.
Today we need to have a menorah in our hearts, lighting our paths in these dark days. This is the way to stability in these days. The way of God’s wisdom is needed more desperately today.
It is only the active work of God’s wisdom in our lives that brings true fulfilment and purpose. It brings rest and calmness in an angry world.
The triumph of truth is eternally inevitable. Truth does not borrow from error. There is nothing but purity in truth. Truth is deep, it is separate from error and it is full of love. Truth is a bastion and pillar of stability for believers. God is at work right now restoring truth to the true church. He is restoring the tabernacle of David, while an entire section of the church falls away. Truth has and will always collide with error.

Edition 284: November 4th 2015
My friends, eternity is one thing no one will ever escape from. The second you die or are called in rapture it’s a done deal. If you live for today, live for self, live for materialism and the acceptance of the world, it will all end in a nightmare of monstrous proportions for you.
You can live for our Lord, live for the devil, commit suicide, get run over by a bus, be successful or a failure – eternity is coming and you will be more awake than ever and fully aware of everything.
Obviously preparing yourself for eternity, God’s way is real wisdom, but what you believe and do about it will also have dramatic effects on your life now.
There are so many people out there including Christians who are unstable. They are prone to stress, depression, distress, dejection, despondency and discouragement.
The opposite of the above is a life of stability, calm, peace, blessing, grace, security, maturity, soundness and confidence.
These two sets of conditions mark and identify who you really are.
My friends, eternity is forever and there is no going back to have a second try! You can have your second try now. Backslider, come back to our Lord, He will take you back. He will forgive you. He will give you a second chance. But the second you step into eternity it’s all over.
There will be no atheists in hell – not one! Every knee shall bow to our Lord Yeshua. The saved have already bowed the knee. The unsaved will do so at their eternal judgment. What an incredible tragedy, to have to bow the knee to the living God knowing that it’s too late and eternal judgement is your lot.
The trumpets are sounding the alarm:
Can you hear the trumpets of warning? Cup you hands behind your ears, maybe you can hear them now. Don’t feel alone if you can’t; only a small handful of people compared to the world population can hear the trumpets.
You who can hear the trumpets; do you hear their message?
1 Corinthians 14:8 “If a trumpet makes an uncertain sound, who will prepare himself for battle?”
Ezekiel 33:4-9. This is a discourse in which the watchman blows the trumpet of warning. If the hearer does nothing about it, his blood is upon himself. But if the trumpet of warning was not sounded the blood of the people will be upon the watchman who did not warn of impending judgement!
Today there are numerous trumpets sounding. Most are warning, but some are informing the Christian that everything is alright. All is fine. No sword is coming...continue as always, tomorrow is another day just like today! Some nice happy, smiley, motivational trumpets are actually trying to silence the trumpets of impending judgement and coming doom!
This is so typical of our day. Many in fact do hear the warnings, but just like in the days of Noah and Lot, they don’t care at all.
If you know our Lord and are seeking to know Him more, and you know your Bible, including prophecy, you are on the way to victory. If you know what is going on and why and when, then you are on stable ground.
If you have correct doctrinal truth about eternity active in your life, it will give you meaning and purpose, it will be one the anchors of your life in a an increasingly unstable and shaking world.
Who is the church?
If eternity in a universal paradise is the end for the true believer, it is very important to establish just what and who the church is and is not.
The counterfeit Christian: ●Believes in Yeshau / Jesus. ●He was infant sprinkled as a kid, which the lying minister called baptism. ●He believes selected parts of the Bible. ●He lives for self and to glorify self and avoids self-denial and cross-bearing. ●He loves the world and its ways. ●He can’t see anything of approaching prophecy. ●He can’t see the demons in his life. ●He has a variable value system with no biblical holiness in his life. ●He worships the great god, Hollywood and the entertainment world. ●He idolises celebrities. ●He goes to church once in a while, serves the sex-goddess Ishtar (Easter). He just loves Chrrrisssmisss. ●He has nothing to do with the biblical convocations and feasts of the Lord. ●He hates and rejects biblically based correction. ●He moves forward in life comparing himself to his friends and neighbours, keeping up with them.
The true Christian: ●Believes in Yeshua / Jesus. ●He is baptised by full immersion in water, by choice as an adult. ●He is baptised in the Spirit as an event subsequent and separate to the new birth and water baptism. ●He believes and loves the entirety of the Bible, rightly dividing and applying it to his life. ●He takes up his cross daily, putting to death the works of the flesh. ●He hates the world and its ways. ●He is well informed about prophecy and what is coming. ●He sees very clearly the eternal gulf and rift between the kingdom of the world and the kingdom of God. ●He has a value system of absolutes with God’s own virtues. ●He steers clear of the satanic gods of entertainment today. ●He identifies with the Hebraic customs and traditions of Messiah and rejects with contempt all that comes from Babylon / Rome. ●He gives attention to moving forward with our Lord.
What is your life?
What is your life? Most are blinded by mediocrity and the security of materialism and a continuing world. Most are blinded by the “I’m okay” syndrome. Most are trapped in the rut of living for self. Most are trapped in what the world has made them. Most don’t question things they just receive, swallow up and accept everything.
There are so many more important things in life than sticking to your opinions and being right with the world. Dying with your own opinions in tact may just make you an eternally wrong person. Dying full of our Lord’s opinions, words and beliefs will make you an eternal VIP.
“Who do you say I am?” asked our Lord. “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God” said Peter. Believing and saying that Yeshua is Lord is not going to help you much although it’s a start. It’s the dramatic reply that is the stunning answer! Our Lord tells Peter that this reply came by divine revelation! This is one of the great secret keys to the Christian life. We receive divine inspiration and understanding as we surrender to our Lord.
Believing that He was Lord, a lord, a good person, a great teacher, a profound man and any such thing makes you a good, unsaved person.
It is the curse of religion, all religion, including Christianity that tries to be good and tries to believe and tries to overcome and always fails because it is not God’s way.
The life of Messiah is alive in us by the Spirit. That’s why the world can’t touch you. It can kill your outward body, but it can’t kill the Kingdom of God, of which you are an inseparable part.
Love for God precedes the love of God. If you say you love God, unless your life is an expression of love for God, you’re a liar. Your love for God will change you radically. The love of God will then be in you and operate through you.
Love for God involves loving all His ways and all of His word and includes dramatic 180 degree turns and radical changes in your life. Then the love of God is “shed abroad in your hearts.”
What if you have been wrong with God all along, while you could have been right with Him all along? Do you think it matters? You see, we are to examine ourselves to see if we’re in the faith. We are to count our days. Days following Him are important. Days of change are important. We are not to compare ourselves amongst ourselves. One day in the near future, you will not stand before your reverend, your minister, your bishop, your priest for reward. You will stand before the living God. He will judge and measure you according to the absolute truth of His word!
It does not matter how good you were or how sincere you were or what good motivations you had. What matters will be your response to God’s word and you application of all of it.
I warn you, today there are so many wild deceptions out there and so many new subtle deceptions starting up right in the family of God, just like the Bible predicted.
►In the next edition I’ll share some of these shocking deceptions and how they started and are growing. Some of them I have watched with my own eyes, knowing the individuals concerned and knowing that they are heading for disaster, taking many with them.
Doom and gloom, hope and heaven:
Many short-sighted and blind preachers and teachers repeatedly say that they’re not into doom and gloom. In their ignorance they have just removed half the Bible. You know of course, what that does? It curses you! So the self motivation, no doom and gloom preachers have in fact doomed themselves.
If you come to The Prophetic Scroll, you will find no such thing. I will always present to you doom and gloom, hope and glory, rightly divided and applied. They are both part of the Bible and are needed for a balanced Christian life. In fact did you know that the Bible has more references to hell than heaven?
Now let me share with you a few verses of what is coming very soon to this world:
Isaiah 13:6-13 “Wail for the day of the Lord is at hand! It will come as destruction from the Almighty. All hands will be limp, everyman’s heart will melt, and they will be afraid. Pangs and sorrows will take hold of them. They will be in pain as a woman in childbirth. They will be amazed at one another; their faces will be like flames. Behold the day of the Lord comes, cruel, with both wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate; and He will destroy its sinners from it. The stars of the heavens and their constellations will not give their light; the sun will be darkened in its going forth and the moon will not shine. I will punish the world for its evil and the wicked for their iniquity; I will halt the arrogance of the proud...I will shake the heavens, and the earth will move out of her place in the wrath of the Lord of hosts and in the day of His fierce anger.”
My friends, heaven and hell are before us. Severe judgement is coming upon the whole world soon. Only those who are truly saved will go to heaven.
The curse of religion:
All religion is cursed. The Christian religion is cursed, Judaism is cursed, Islam is cursed and I could go on.
Some are thinking they can’t believe that! How can Christianity be cursed?
So, what then is the difference between cursed Christianity and true Christianity?
All religion is based on law and works rather than faith and grace. A works based outlook always brings a curse.
There are numerous things that generate curses in the lives of believers. Coming under the law is one of them. Indulging in any of the numerous occult practices is another.
Many are on the wide road rather than the narrow road. They are open to and practice the occult. They believe in fortune telling, astrology, and other eastern religious observances. They are seeking power in these things. They seek wisdom, but because their hearts are not surrendered their wisdom comes from below.
James 3:14-17 “Self-seeking is wisdom that does not come from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic...the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality or hypocrisy.”
Deuteronomy 18:10-11 Condemns the practice of all witchcraft, soothsayers, interpreters of omens or sorcerers or those who conjure spells, mediums, spiritists or those who call up the dead.
Job 24:13 “There are those who rebel against the light; they do not know its ways nor abide in its paths.”
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.”
Job 38:15 “From the wicked their light is withheld...”
Rebellion is as witchcraft says the Bible. Today the church is full of rebels even in the pulpits. Witchcraft has a secret, seducing but evil power. These people feel empowered. This is why they continue in it. They are all cursed.
Deuteronomy 7:25-26 “You shall burn the carved images of their gods with fire; you shall not covet the silver and gold that is on them (Lit=decorations), do not take it for yourself, lest you be snared by it; for it is an abomination to the Lord your God. Nor shall you bring an abomination (Lit=idol) into your home, lest you be doomed to destruction like it; but you shall utterly destroy it and utterly abhor it, for it is an accursed thing.”
These are big things today. You would be shocked and amazed at how many church goers mess with these things.
Deuteronomy 13:13 “Certain corrupt men have gone out from among you and enticed the inhabitants of the city saying, let us go and serve other gods, gods whom you have not known.”
Ezekiel 13:18-19 “Woe to the women who sew magic charms on their sleeves and hunt souls! Will you hunt the souls of My people and keep yourselves alive? Will you profane Me among My people for handfuls of barley and pieces of bread, killing people who should not die and keeping people alive who should not live, by your lying to My people who listen to lies.”
Today many cursed ministers are leading their flock into a world that is inoffensive to the world. They are leading people to find comfort and acceptance in the world. Their churches have not identified the accelerating moral decline of the world. They have not kept up with resistance to the ever worsening world. So, they surrender to it.
Your anchor in a shaking world:
Hebrews 6:19 “This hope (in God) we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil.”
Isaiah 33:6 “Wisdom and knowledge (of God) will be the stability of your times, and the strength of your salvation; the fear of the Lord is His treasure.”
Isaiah 32:17 “The work of righteousness will be peace and the affect of righteousness, quietness and peace forever.”
Look at those key words above: ANCHOR, STEADFAST, STABILITY, STRENGTH, PEACE, and QUIETNESS FOREVER.
As you grow in the Lord, His way, with Him leading you and opening your eyes, you begin to fulfil His ultimate plan and call for your life. You become strong and stable. You become filled with knowledge, understanding and wisdom – the very wisdom of God.
Incredible, deep peace and internal quietness floods your life. Notice in the verse above that it’s forever! In many cases the peace that engulfs you is almost tangible.
Excuse me for this; I say it only as testimony and not with any other motives. Many people who have come into my home over the years for one thing or another have commented on a feeling of peace all around. The odd thing is that many have said the exact same thing without me saying anything about it beforehand.
The anchor of your soul will calm the waters, silence the storms and stress of life and deliver you into glorious light – the light of God!
The secret key:
What is the biggest key to the successful Christian life? What is the greatest thing you can ever do as a believer? What is the most powerful thing necessary for success and an abundant entry in the eternal kingdom?
It is all wrapped up in the one most powerful verse:
Corinthians 5:15 “He died for all that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.”
You see, you are wasting your time coming to salvation and then cherry-picking a few verses and essentially carrying on as you always have. It is a waste of your time getting saved and then deciding what you want to do for our Lord.
As this verse above says, we are to live for our Lord. We are to give ourselves to Him fully. We are to give ourselves to Him in surrender. This includes laying down every aspect of our lives and becoming a prisoner to His Spirit and His word.
The secret key to the Christian life is – you can’t do it so stop trying. Give up and die! Give up and give yourself fully and completely to Him under the leading and power of the Holy Spirit.
As you do this, so you see new things. Now you see and begin to understand His word. Now you can see hell and you can see heaven and you see what is of the kingdom of God and what is of the kingdom of the world. Now you begin to see the great rift between the two.
You can’t do it on your own. You can’t try to be a good Christian – you will fail. You must fail. All the disciples failed trying to do it until they died to self and gave their lives to our Lord so that He could open their eyes.
Until the power emanating from the cross has done its work in you, you are a failure from God’s point of view, and you are living for self. You are living for your ways and your own ways are filled with self. The un-crucified self is the playground of Satan. You are living for Satan and you can’t see it!
Only our Lord can open your eyes to see His kingdom. Only our Lord can show you the real meaning of love and why it includes the rejection of all evil. True love is enveloped in holiness. Love for a sinner includes his repentance. If not, you are loving that sinners sin.
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.”
It is costly to prepare your life for eternity. Seeking and obeying truth is not easy or automatic once you become a believer. Much sacrifice is needed. Much forsaking is needed. Many changes, radical changes are needed in your life. You need to open all the doors to every “room” in your life and let our Lord in.
In many cases you need to walk alone, stand separate and removed from ways of the world and your friends. In some cases you need to stand removed from and separated from the ways of the church.
You need to be radical in your pursuit of God. The word “radical” comes from the root word “radix” meaning “root.” When you start at the root and root out all the garbage and error in your life and then begin building right from the root – then you are on a solid foundation and growing just right.
You will then be ready for eternity, God’s eternity. You will make an abundant entry into the everlasting kingdom. You will welcomed by masses of angels, friends and family who have gone before you. You will immediately encounter so many things you could never even begin to imagine.
I took this picture in the spectacular desert, Namaqualand. For just a few weeks over a thousand kilometres of barren landscape springs to life with millions of wildflowers as far as the eye can see.

Shalom and grow in grace!
Edition 283: October 28th 2015
A message and warning to the Nations:
A message and warning to the Nations:
We must know that God deals with individuals, families, entire nations and the world as a whole. There are many verses that apply to each one. God deals with believers and unbelievers differently and He also deals with Israel separately. You can’t lump them all together.
In this edition, I want to deal with the major Bible messages and warnings to the unsaved world and their leaders in particular. This would include government institutions, organisations like the UN, the financial institutions, the religious institutions and the masses of the people as well.
This message is for Presidents, Prime Ministers, Kings, Queens, Princes, Heads of State, UN leaders, Ambassadors, Senators, Governors, Sultans, Sheikhs and all VIP’s with governmental authority and influence.
There is one very big, enormous message and warning to the nations. Of course all the warnings about moral decline are relevant, but the big one relates to the treatment of Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews.
Believe it, like it or not, this is the great divide of the era. In fact this is the most important issue in the world. This will be a fast-rising fence and will be the cause of many going to hell and many being saved. You don’t know how important this is!
Leaders of the world, almost without exception, you are now fulfilling Bible prophecy, written thousands of years ago as you turn against Israel, many in unison and some one by one like demon-dominos tumbling.
Leaders of the world, your influence among your people has and will spread. In many cases, like a tragic Pied Piper, you are leading your people to hell. You are beyond help.
What is going on in the world?
The world is not moving along in a random fashion. It is on its deadly course! Likewise, God’s kingdom is on course as well, exactly as planned. (Ephesians 2:2)
If God has established and set something clearly in His word, and if it is a big issue, you can be sure that Satan will oppose it.
The problem with the world is that it has decided in favour of the Palestinians and against Israel. But why the universal hatred, why are all nations against God’s word on Israel? The reason is because the world hates God. But why is this the case? It is because the world is one with its god – Satan, and it follows its lover of evil. (2 Corinthians 4:4). It is because the world has Satan in its heart even though it can’t see him, know him, or even acknowledge that he exists. (John 15:18-19)
The world hates God because He dares to choose. God says homosexuality is evil. The world says it’s a democratic choice. The world thinks it is right because it has the majority consensus is on its side. The world thinks democracy is God.
And while on the subject of homosexuality and its very telling choice of the rainbow flag:
The rainbow, my friends, is a two sided sword with three central messages incorporated into it. ●It’s a beautiful reminder of God’s promises of new beginnings and blessing after judgement. ●It’s a beautiful reminder that God judges sin and that untold terror is coming to the whole world again. ●It incorporates homosexuality into the category of sin.
A message to world leaders:
Dear Presidents and Prime Ministers of the world and all the world’s leaders. This is for you, although most of you will not read it. But many of your subjects will. O let me add, that many of you, world leaders, will soon be in great company. You will soon meet with the world’s most famous people and leaders of all time.
Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini and Mao will be there, so will Saddam Hussein and Bin Laden. John Lennon and George will be there – imagine! Pol Pot and Attila the Hun will be there. Vlad the Impaler, Vlad Dracula and Vlad Lenin will be at the meeting and so will Ivan the Terrible. Nero, Caesar, Herod. Judas the betrayer, Nimrod, Jezebel and your own favourites – they’ll all be there and you’ll meet them face to face.
Obama, after you’ve crossed the deadly line drawn by God, you’ll be able to sit down with Hitler and get to know him. You’ll have lots of time.
Netanyahu, unless you get saved first, you’ll be joining that chat with Obama and Hitler!
Queenie, you’ll be able to sit down with Diana and Napoleon and have tea with them. The tea will be fiery hot though!
The message for you, dear world leaders is this. Do you know that your influence flows through to your people? Do you know that what you do and say influences the beliefs and practises of your subjects? Do you know that they follow you in many respects? Do you know that you have huge influence within the masses?
Have a look at these shocking verses from the book of my Leader, personal God and Saviour:
Proverbs 29:12 “If a ruler pays attention to lies, all his servants become wicked.”
Jeremiah 8:9 “The wise men are ashamed and dismayed. Behold they have rejected the word of the Lord; so what wisdom do they have?
Rulers of the nations, you are the fools with no wisdom revealed in the verse above! You are the servants of lies born in the god of lies. You have led untold millions down the road to the coming wrath of God. You have no true wisdom. Your wisdom comes from the camouflaged father of deception, the giver of dark light.
Rulers of the world, you rule with all the authority of the joker in the pack, except it’s not so funny! You rule with the wisdom of Satan himself, the powerful deceiver, and worker of miracles.
Political leaders of the world, you are failures. Your failure may not be apparent now, but very soon it will all become evident. You have failed at your jobs, and failed in leading your people safely to healthy pastures! You have failed before God and failed His word. Your eternal future is failure in the extreme (unless you repent before your die.)
World rulers, you have the blood of many masses on your hands. You are the failures and fools responsible. World rulers, read that verse again in Proverbs 29:12 above!
There is a new big thing happening around the world now – you can’t see it or know it unless you are born-again and Spirit filled. There is a new outbreak and intensity of demonic powers in operation especially in world rulers.
These are major controlling demon principalities, which operate specifically in rulers and leaders.
Let me just add, that you can’t get rid of any demons in your life outside of the gifts of the Spirit.
The great deception:
Today the greatest deception of all is found in the Israeli / Palestinian “question” and its related issues.
The occupation of the territories and the Temple Mount are perhaps the biggest issues where the strongest deceptions are to be found.
God ordered the occupation! Shall I say that again? God ordered the occupation! Shall I say it again? God ordered the occupation.
What right do you have, world leaders, to defy God?
Exodus 23:32-33 “You (Israel) shall make no covenant with them (Arabs), nor with their gods. They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against Me. For if you serve their gods, it will surely be a snare to you.”
Genesis 17:7-8 “I will establish My covenant between Me and you 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.”
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 let remain, shall be irritants in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they shall harass you in the land where you dwell.
These verses above show and demonstrate clearly that God, by covenant decree, ordered the children of Israel to occupy the land which is Israel today. By the way, there are dozens more similar verses.
World leaders, your attention should be energised against the real occupation and occupiers – the Palestinians!
The Temple Mount:
The Temple Mount is not only significant from a prophetic point of view, but it is of major importance from a historic, cultural and religious point of view. The history, worship and very identification of the Jewish people and the Temple Mount go back over 3000 years, long, long before Islam was ever invented in 600AD.
The problems with the troubles surrounding the Temple Mount are really, Israel’s in the first place. Once you let the Genie out of the bottle, you can’t put it back in. And when the Genie turns into a monster, you have a big problem. Israel could have annexed the Temple Mount in 1967, and they could do it now. But to placate and appease Islam and the Palestinians they now have an enormous problem.
World leaders are now trying to defy God by not only dividing the land of Israel, the city of Jerusalem, but the Temple Mount as well. In fact it is already divided.
Temple Mount, may I address you directly? (Yes I do speak to stones sometimes and I do wish that the stones of the Temple Mount would speak – what a dramatic story they would tell!) Your ancient stones are about to see fire, judgement, the fury of God, war, conflict, and all that emanates from defying the living God! Perhaps, some peace deal will emerge afterwards and as a result.
Dividing the land (two-state solution) brings war and not peace. (Joel 3:2) Dividing the city of Jerusalem brings world war and not peace. (Zechariah 12:3) Dividing the Temple Mount brings war and not peace, and then the man of peace, the antichrist comes right into the heart of the new temple to declare himself as God. (Daniel 9:27)
The Temple Mount is the only place where God commanded His name to dwell. (Deuteronomy 12:11) It is also the very spot where the world’s greatest deception will take place. It will be Satan himself indwelling the antichrist who will declare himself as God in the Temple. God commanded His name to dwell there; the counterfeiter in camouflage declares that he is God from there!
You see, as long as Islam has a presence on the Temple Mount it legitimises, affirms and attests to the very existence of Palestine and its ownership claim of all Israel, which is all a lie. That’s just why war is coming, and we already know who the victor will be!
These verses declare that our Lord has chosen Zion, He has chosen Jerusalem and He has chosen the Jews! (For the sake of space, hover your mouse over the verses). Psalm 132:13, Zechariah 3:2, Deuteronomy 14:2, Psalm 135:4.
And if you think those verses are not clear enough, this is the breakdown of God’s covenant with the children of Israel, which specifically excludes the Arabs (modern Palestinians.)
Genesis 17:18-21 “Abraham said to God, ‘O that Ishmael (father of the Arabs) might live before you!’ Then God said, ‘No Sarah your wife shall bear you a son and you shall call his name Isaac (father of the Jews). I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant and with his descendants after him. As for Ishmael, I have heard you. Behold, I have blessed him and made him fruitful and will multiply him exceedingly...but My covenant I will establish with Isaac.’”
World rulers, you will dance with the devil in the new temple! You will screech his tune. In fact you are already serving him!
World leaders and rulers, did you know that there is a special high-ranking category of demons which inhabit you? Do you know that they are manoeuvring you all into order for your great end-time, tragic, horror-roles?
Acts 15:16 “I will return and I will rebuild the tabernacle of David (temple) which has fallen down. I will rebuild its ruins and I will set it up, so that the rest of mankind may seek the Lord, even all the Gentiles who are called by My name.”
The temple may well become the headquarters of the new world religion or at least the HQ of the interfaith movement with false Christianity, Judaism and Islam united.
An unchangeable heart of war:
The heart of man is desperately wicked says the Bible. (Jeremiah 17:9). Every man has a heart! Every heart has the wickedness of Adam in his blood and it can only be changed by getting new-blood, the blood of Messiah by the new-birth through faith.
The sin problem in mankind comes by birth, and can only be fixed by the new-birth, but there are some who will never repent or change.
Like the divisions of authority within an army there are simply some people out there who are satanically driven leaders. They are ruled by equally powerful demons deep in their hearts. These are people who love crime, who love war, who love hatred. They are beyond help.
Psalm 140:1 “Deliver me, O Lord, from evil men. Preserve me from violent men who plan evil things in their hearts; they continually gather together for war.”
Psalm 55:21 “The words of His mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart.”
Psalm 68:30 “Scatter the people who delight in war.”
Psalm 120:7 “I am for peace, but when I speak they are for war.”
Do these verses relate to the Palestinians today? Of course they do. If you say they don’t, you are most probably from Europe, or perhaps an Obama fan.
Today, many world leaders call the Palestinians innocent victims of Israel aggression.
Obama, it’s your evil heart that causes you to throw Israel under the bus! Abbas, Hamas, Hezbollah, ISIS and your allies the world’s mass media, it’s your evil, wicked hearts that cause you to hate the Jews.
“Prepare for war, wake up the mighty men” (and machines) (Joel3:9)
The world’s mass-media will unite the opinions of the world and all Israel’s enemies. Unknowingly (most of the time) they are preparing the stage for great war and conflict, which is all about to break out. They will be the very ones who facilitated it.
Israel’s journey to victory and her Messiah will not be without enormous bloodshed. The world’s rulers are complicit with the devil and the media in this regard. But you, my friends, what will your attitude be?
Micah 7:8 “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.”
Amos 9:15 “I will plant them in their land; and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord.’”
The above two verses are extremely profound, far reaching and relevant today. Israel has and will fall again. Do not rejoice! Israel will arise again and fully complete God’s original call, purpose and plan with them.
Also note that once Israel is back in her God-given land, that’s it. She will never be uprooted again. Do you see that you fool politicians and world leaders? You can’t divide Israel or Jerusalem. You can’t give Israel or any part to Islam.
You, leaders trying to divide the land, you can’t ultimately defeat God and His word.
As a believer, you don’t need to be on the front lines, but you must not be silent either.
“Silence in the face of evil is evil itself” Never a truer word spoken!
In a previous edition, I said, “Israel it’s your time”. Now I say to true believers, “It’s your time to take a stand. It’s your time to stand with God’s word for Israel”.
Only God’s choice will endure:
Psalm 33:12 “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, and the people He has chosen as His inheritance.”
Isaiah 60:12 “For the nation and kingdom which shall not serve you, shall perish and be utterly ruined.”
Isaiah 28:22 “Do not be mockers...a destruction is determined upon the whole earth.”
Psalm 2:1-5 “Why do the nations rage and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves (and take their places) and the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and against His anointed...He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall hold them in derision. He shall speak to them in His wrath, and distress them in His deep displeasure.”
These verses above give you a little clue as to your choices!
God’s irrevocable plan and call to Israel:
Romans 11:29 “The gifts and calling of God (upon the Jews) are irrevocable.”
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 (Jews) 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.”
Ezekiel 20:41 “I will accept you (Israel) when I bring you out of the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you have been scattered; and I will be hallowed in you before the Gentiles.”
Zechariah 8:22-23 “Many peoples and strong nations shall come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the Lord. In those days, ten men of every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, and ‘Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you”.
Jeremiah 30:17 “I will restore you (Israel) and heal your wounds, says the Lord, because they called you an outcast saying: This is Zion; no one seeks her.” But verse 22 says: You Israel shall be My people and I will be your God.”
Do you see God’s plan for Israel in these verses above? Please read them again and let them sink in. The dramatic, glorious summary is this:
God brings His called and chosen people back to the land of Israel in spiritual blindness, then opens their eyes and saves them. Now with Messiah in their hearts the Gentile nations of the world come running to the Jews for salvation! This all reaches its climax in the tribulation period. What great drama! What a spectacular turn of events! What a wonderful God we serve!
Israel, prepare for your surprising future! Israel, prepare for war and bloodshed, Israel prepare for a new covenant with God, written in blood – His blood!
Imagine the shock of arriving in hell and finding out that Satan is real and he was in you and leading you and influencing you. Imagine the shock of arriving in hell and finding out that your political heroes and rulers are all there and were the tools of Satan all along. Imagine the shock of arriving in hell and finding out that you were wrong and on the wrong road all your life because you swallowed the poison of the media and world rulers!
Imagine the shock of arriving in hell and discovering that salvation was only a few words and actions away and you knew this but ignored it all!!
Our Lord created you with a majestic plan for your life, made before the foundation of the earth. He created every single atom in your body. He has the keys of heaven and hell and controls your eternal destiny. Do you think it’s a good idea to take heed of His word?
