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 Christendom and 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.

●The recent US-led airstrike on Syria has led to a big zero again – so far. Israel was not involved in any way and no involvement came from Russia or Iran. Prophetically, it leaves us watching and waiting again. Of course, Russia may respond militarily at any time. We will watch. But for now it’s a waiting game again, and not the big event many are saying. It does however consolidate the players, identifying them. But they are still in the wings of the stage. There have been many threats and rhetoric from some nations, including Iran, but no action. Do bear in mind that this entire issue is volatile and can change in a flash...and probably will.
●As Israel warms up for its 70-year birthday celebrations, census numbers have been released. The population inside Israel now stands at 8.842 million. This is 43% of world Jewry. I wonder when it will hit the important biblical number of 888. Pretty soon I think!
●Funny thing this: The UN has just celebrated “International Day of Happiness.” Israel ranks highest in the “happiness” stakes – (BIN)
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah and to identify the rift, and the needed restoration. There is much in the church that needs to change before it can be fully reconciled with the Jew. Likewise, changes in Jewish thinking are also needed.
Edition 28. February 6th 2010
In this edition:
●Startling prophecies still to be fulfilled!
The prophet Isaiah by Raphael 1511
Prophecies about to be fulfilled.
This edition should be seen in light of the previous one dealing with fulfilled Bible prophecy. The bottom line is that prophecy was fulfilled in a literal and exact manner in the past, which means that this pattern will continue into the future. We are now on the doorstep of many earth shattering prophecies coming to pass. Unfulfilled prophecy must be seen in light of fulfilled prophecy.
2 Timothy 3:16 "All scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete." "All" includes prophecy!
Isaiah 66: 2 "On this one shall I look; on him who is poor and of a contrite spirit and who trembles at My word."
Prophecy points the way ahead:
The world is racing at great speed to it's terrible destiny, while true believers in Messiah are racing ahead to their glorious destiny. The prophetic calendar shows that there is very little time left. Dear reader, please be aware that knowing about prophecy can't save you. It must all lead you to knowing our Messiah more deeply and intimately.
The King and the Kingdom of God:
The Kingdom of God is not the church! "Ahg, how can you speak such rubbish", I hear some very reverends saying! No the Kingdom of God is not the church. It includes the true church, but it is much larger and bigger than the church. The Kingdom of God is everything that does and will fall under His Kingship. This includes true Gentile believers, Messianic Jews, all of heaven, the future (true) new world order, and the universe including all of its currently unknown-to-us aspects. We need to see with prophetic eyes beyond our little worlds.
The sceptics nightmare.
This beautiful building, below, in Jerusalem is called the Shrine of the Book. It houses the 900-odd Dead Sea Scrolls. Many sceptics say that Bible prophecy may have been manipulated and the Bible itself has changed much since its original. Some of the Dead Sea Scrolls contain writings of many descriptions, but a number of them are accurate transcripts from the ancient Biblical texts. The Great Isaiah Scroll contains the entire book of Isaiah word for word. This copy predates the Christian era by a long way. It is identical in every word to Isaiah of our day. These scrolls show that not one single word has changed. It proves beyond doubt that Bible is authentic and can be trusted.
The image below with "Things to come" overlaid on it, is the actual Great Isaiah Scroll now kept in the Shrine of the Book.
There are many modern translations of the scriptures that are terribly flawed in many foundational areas. I will do an edition on this soon. Be warned ahead of time. The coming New International Version (NIV) to be released soon, will be the worst in history! It is nothing but blasphemy through and through. After looking at what's coming, it angers me so greatly!
I will deal with unfulfilled prophecies relating to the soon coming millennium reign of our King in an upcoming edition.
Some unfilled, well known prophecies include the many relating to the signs of the end of this age or era. ●The great war of Gog and Magog in Ezekiel 38 & 39 (also called the Third World War by some) ●The destruction of Damascus ●The Rapture of the true church. ●The completion of the revised Roman Empire or one world government. ●The arise of the antichrist. ●The arising of a monetary control system. ●Many relating to the judgements of God on this world during the tribulation period.
The Great Isaiah Scroll.
Startling prophecies that will come to pass soon:
What I want to do now is reveal to you some little known, but startling and profound unfulfilled prophecies, soon to be fulfilled. Unless you are a keen student of God's word, you would not be aware of most of these.
I have intentionally chosen many prophecies that are unfamiliar to the casual Christian or Jew. These all have far reaching implications for the world and believers at large. These are only a small handful of many hundreds. They are extremely exciting and of monumental importance. They are earth shattering and fly in the face of modern theology and socio-political world views.
The coming temple in Jerusalem:
Zechariah 1:16 "I am returning to Jerusalem with mercy, My house shall be built in it says the Lord" 2 Thes 2:4 Speaks of the man of sin (antichrist) setting himself up in "the temple of God" in Jerusalem. Other verses indicating the rebuilding of the temple include: Amos 9: 11, 12 Acts 15:16 Isaiah 2:1-3 and Revelation 11:1,2
A message to Germany, and all others who came against Israel and will in the future:
Isaiah :60 14, 15 " The sons of those who afflicted you, (Israel) shall come bowing to you and all those that despised you shall fall prostrate at the sole of your feet and they shall call you 'The City of the Lord'...You have been forsaken and hated, I will make you an eternal excellence, a joy of many generations."
Micah 7:9 "I (Israel) will bear the indignation of the Lord because I have sinned against Him until He pleads my case..He will bring me forth to the light and I will see His righteousness. Then she who is my enemy will see, and shame will cover her who said to me, "Where is the Lord your God?"
Isaiah 49: 16,17 "See I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands, your walls are continually before Me. Your destroyers and those who laid you waste shall go away from you."
Isaiah 54: 17 "No weapon formed against you (Israel) shall prosper and every tongue which rises against you in judgement, you shall condemn."
Coming worldwide respect of the Jews:
Zechariah 8:13 "It shall come to pass that just as you were a curse among the nations O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you and you shall be a blessing . Verse 23 "In those days ten men of every nation shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying "let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you."
Isaiah 14:1 "For the Lord will have mercy on Jacob and will still chose Israel and settle them in their own land. The strangers (Gentiles) will be joined with them and they will cling to the house of Jacob."
Isaiah 60: 1-12 "Arise shine for your light has come and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you (Israel)...His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light...The wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you...For the nation and kingdom which will not serve you shall perish."
Isaiah 49:1-8 "Listen O coastlands to Me and take heed, you peoples from afar...You are My servant O Israel in whom I will be glorified...I will give you as a light to the Gentiles...I will preserve you and give you as a covenant to the people to restore the earth."
Isaiah 49: 19 "For your waste places and the land of your destruction will now be too small for the inhabitants. Verse 22-26 "Behold I will lift My hand in an oath to the nations and set up My standard for the peoples...Kings shall be your foster fathers and their queens your nursing mothers; They shall bow down to you with their faces to the earth and lick up the dust of your feet...All flesh shall know that I the Lord am your Saviour Israel, and your redeemer the Mighty One of Jacob."
Isaiah 61:7 "Instead of your shame (Israel) you shall have double honour and instead of confusion, they shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall have double. Everlasting joy shall be theirs."
Isaiah 66:10-12 "Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad with her, all you who love her; Rejoice for joy with her all you who mourn for her...Behold I will extend peace to her like a river and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream."
Hosea 2: 14-19 "I will allure her (Israel) and bring her into the wilderness...she shall sing there and it will be in that day says the Lord that you will call me 'My Husband and no longer call me My Master. I will betroth you to Me forever."
Hosea 14:4-6 "I will heal their backslidings, I will love them freely, for My anger has turned away from him. I will be like the dew to Israel, His branches shall spread. His beauty will be like an olive tree."
Isaiah 54: 7 "For a brief moment I have forsaken you, but with great mercies I will gather you
Psalm 102:13 "For the time to favour Zion has come."
Coming judgement on the Palestinians and their supporters: (The Biblical people of Ammon, Edom, Moab, Gaza and the Philistines, in prophetic terms would be Arab Palestinians. See edition 16 for more on this)
Zephaniah 2: 8,9 "Moab and Ammon (Arabs) have made arrogant threats against the borders of My people, therefore says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, surely Moab shall become like Sodom and the people of Ammon like Gomorrah."
Ezekiel 36 :2 -27 "Because the enemy has said of you (Israel), 'Aha the ancient heights have become our possession ...therefore thus says the Lord God, surely I have spoken in My burning jealousy against the rest of the nations and against all Edom, who have given My land to themselves as a possession with joy and spiteful minds." verse 25 " Then I will sprinkle clean water on you and you shall be clean...I will give you a new heart and will put a new spirit within you. I will put My Spirit within you,"
Amos 1:6,7 "For the transgressions of Gaza, because they took captive the whole captivity to deliver it to Edom, I will send fire on Gaza...and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish." Verse 13 "That they might enlarge their territory."
Zechariah 9:5,6 "Gaza shall be very sorrowful...and I will cut off the pride of the Philistines."
Ezekiel 28 :25 "When I have gathered the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and I am hallowed in them in the sight of the Gentiles...I will execute judgement on all those around them who despise them."
Jeremiah 30:16,17 "Therefore all those who devour you (Israel) shall be devoured...I will heal your wounds, because they called you an outcast saying: This is Zion, no one seeks her."
Isaiah 26:15 "You have increased the nation (Israel) O Lord, You are glorified; You have expanded all the borders of the land
The prophet Malachi
Coming judgements on the people of the world:
Isaiah 24:1-23 "The Lord distorts the surface of the earth". The earth is defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the laws and broken the everlasting covenant...therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned and few are left...The earth is violently broken and split open and is shaken exceedingly...The Lord will punish the high host of exalted ones."
Jeremiah 51:20 "You are My battle-axe (Israel) and weapons of war. For with you I will break the nations in pieces, with you I will destroy kingdoms".
Jeremiah 30:11 "For I am with you says the Lord, to save you; though I make a full end of all the nations where I have scattered you, yet I will not make a complete end of you.
The above verses fit in perfectly with all the more familiar prophecies, but these bring in details that are generally not well known. These are the exact opposite of what is taught in much of the church today and the exact opposite of the view of the world.
These prophecies also reveal that the Palestinians will be destroyed for trying to steal God's inheritance given to Israel. Most traditional churches are in the same situation.
The above verses collectively reveal that God has a spectacular, incredible, amazing, wonderful plan for Messianic Jews, true gentile believers and the land of Israel. These prophecies reveal that all who come against God's plans for Israel will ultimately be destroyed.
Many perhaps most of these prophecies will see their fulfilment in the tribulation period, but some do relate to the period in the run-up to the tribulation, which is where we are now.
Isn't it interesting that Hitler's final solution was to wipe out the Jews. The traditional, lukewarm church also has the same solution in a presently more humane form called the replacement theology. (See edition 26) But God has a final solution that replaces all these works of the devil with Himself ultimately Glorified in the Jews! How about that for a turn of events!!
What a great God we have. One who knows the end from the beginning and declares it to us before time. Unless you are a giant fool you can do nothing but be humbled before this great God.
There is no other religion that has within its evil confines anything prophetic, never mind such a carefully laid out plan that has come to pass and is and will, just as the prophets declared! I said this in the last edition; I say it again: You are gambling against immeasurable odds if you reject prophecy!
As with the flavour of the entire Prophetic Scroll, these prophecies show the importance of balance from Gods point of view and the desperate need to break from traditional views.
Much of the church has grabbed the Jewish fruit and rejected the Jewish roots. Today the church has taken all the promises to the Jews for themselves and replaced, rejected and condemned Israel. It has despised Zionism. It has a blind spot towards Messianic Jews. The truth is the exact shocking opposite as revealed in these prophecies! You can't be lukewarm to these issues and you can't be neutral.
Revelation 3: 16 "Because you are lukewarm (the Laodicea church) I will spew you out of My mouth.
Dear reader please understand this: If you bless Israel and give her the dues God gives her, you will be blessed. If you join much of the church in coming against Israel you are cursed of God and on a crowded road leading to a disastrous conclusion.
●Prophecy reveals that believing Jews and Gentiles have their destiny entwined. The restoration of Israel has already started and a new Messianic Community of Jew and Gentile as One new man is underway now.
Please be aware that we are entering incredible times. There will be mass confusion amongst many and unfortunately many believers will betray one another over these issues. Mathew 24:10 "Many will be offended and betray one another in that day...and the love of many will grow cold." We are entering times where it is critical to have your hearts right before our Lord and to be right in doctrine. False doctrine or error is no small issue, it always leads to wrong actions.
Isaiah 50:5 "He awakens my ear to hear as the learned, the Lord has opened my ear."
Ezekiel 3: 6, 27 "Receive into your heart all My words that I speak to you...When I speak to you I will open your mouth and you shall say, Thus says the Lord."
The above prophecies all come from the word of our Lord, can you hear Him speaking to you? If so, you need to speak His Words to as many as He leads you to.
Heaven or hell:
It's really all about what and how you see things isn't it? Who do you look to for your life's food? Do you look to the world and its evil gods. Are you a worshipper of the great Satanic god Hollywood? Do you let the ways of the world fill your heart and soul. Do you see things the way the great majority of the world does? If so, I'd hate to be in your shoes when our Messiah looks into your eyes on judgement day!
Your eyes are a window into your soul and God can see clearly right into your heart! He sees and knows every detail about you. As He looks in through your eyes, He knows if you've made right with Him. Are you His own child destined for heaven? If you are, your eyes will see Him face to face with confidence. You'll enter a world where you'll see so many things too wonderful to describe...forever. If not your eyes will see Satan up close and personal as you move in with him.
In closing here is wonderful painting by Marc Chagall titled "Solitude" It shows the prophet clinging to the Torah scroll. I think it actually represents hope and promise. One thing I love about Chagall's work is that it shows, like all of us artists, that he was touch mad!! Who in their right mind would put a smiling cow playing a violin behind the prophet? I love it!! (By the way his paintings today sell in the $6 million region.)
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace!
