|This ministry has a distinct kingdom vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for Israel and the church. My position is pre-trib! I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share with you the great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God.|
►We have now reached 46 million regular visitors.
►Next Edition, Lord willing: "The Prophetic Scroll PeacePlan"
- Riots rage across major US cities as anti-Semitic incidents rise worldwide.
- Military threats escalate along Israel’s borders.
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
This verse, below was given to me by our Lord in December last year to give to you as the crowning verse for 2020. This was just before the corona-virus became a world pandemic:
The heading is, “Babylon humiliated.” End-time Babylon is the modern world system:
Isaiah 47:10-11 “You have trusted in your wickedness. You have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you; You have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one besides me.’ Therefore evil shall come upon you and you shall not know from where it arises, and trouble shall fall upon you. You will not be able to put it off, and desolation shall come upon you suddenly.”
Romans 14:11 “For it is written, as I live says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me and every tongue shall confess to God.”
Psalm 86:9 “All nations who you have made, shall come and worship before you, O lord and glorify Your name.”
Psalm 72:11 “Yes, all kings shall fall down before Him, all nations shall serve Him.”
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose of this report is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah.
31st July 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Transforming light, life and power:
How do you know that you are solidly in the Lord’s kingdom, saved and growing in Him? What is you measure of salvation and victory?
It really is all about your transformation and it’s working from inside your heart to the outside. Do you have a growing love for holiness or do you still secretly love evil?
So much in the world is falling apart and creating a nightmare of stress and strain.
Growth in the Lord encompasses standing securely, in victory, in times of troubled waters.
A deathly, dark, demonic deception has descended upon the world, painting its beauty with an unholy ugliness.
The raging nights are thick with sick! Even the stars seem sterile and twinkle-less, hiding behind wafts of mysterious mist as we await the great twinkling-eye signal in the clouds.
This is actually the calm before the storm, the storm before the eternal calm. Yes the storm is calm compared to what’s coming and very soon. In fact comparatively, the world is now a teddy bears’ pick nick – a Mickey Mouse party.
Sounds of sirens reverberate, but are gutted and defunded. Their terror has been stolen from them by the terror of insurrection, revolt, mutiny and anarchy.
Romans 13:3 Rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authorities? Do what is good and you will have praise from them...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.”
The cops are to be a terror to evildoers. If not the terrible reversal takes place and the evildoers become the terror to the cops and all civilised society!
The incidents of insurrection are growing, worldwide. The numbers are growing too. Historically, God acts when many people are affected and influenced by an evil work.
There is no safety in the numbers of rebels. There is only real safety in truth, holiness and righteousness.
Like our Lord in hell as a victor, before His resurrection, so we await our resurrection in a world turned to hell on earth.
Why is the champion of love, the God of all grace and mercy hated so much these days?
There is “another Jesus” who is not hated by the world. He has no cross and no Spirit! (2 Corinthians 11:4)
John 7:7 “The world hates Me because I testify that its works are evil.”
John 15:18 “If the world hates you, know that it hated Me before it hated you.”
Psalm 97:10-11 “You who love the Lord, hate evil! He preserves the soul of His saints; He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked. Light is sown for the righteous...”
The modern materialistically orientated church teaches you to “find your life in the world.” (Luke 17:33) They teach you to accept all the things that Satan offered our Lord, and he rejected.
►But, there is great safety in and amongst the ministers of the gospel that are close to our Lord. Those who know Him well, and walk with Him are safe and secure. Their light shines in the dark.
As the world prepares for its new world ruler, soon to emerge, know that there are many that you cannot trust anymore. Politicians, billionaires, businessmen, medical men, media, scientific experts and many worldly religious leaders are all tools of the devil in these days.
The one thing you absolutely cannot do at all these days is trust the media. They are driven by a demon monkey on their backs.
The materialistic orientated churches and all the Spirit-less churches are mostly devoid of any end-time understanding. For that reason alone, you need to be careful of them. It’s also no coincidence that they avoid anything on Israel, and even come against God’s plans for Israel.
►Love for the world of necessity means rejection of Israel! The reason is because Israel is God’s chosen “weapon” to destroy the world.” People may not know that, but spirits do!
God’s light must shine by His Spirit to offer real insight into all things related to Israel.
There are tragic effects of coming against Israel: You will be blinded to the truth, made deaf, have your heart hardened, receive a voice of confusion, and be distressed. You will have your neck under God’s knee and laughed at and scoffed at by God and be broken by Him. (There are verses for all of those things)
It’s no good just having a collection of verses in front of you. You need the light of God to receive His sight and insight, especially today. This is the way of godly metamorphosis.
Only the resurrection power of God through the work of the cross produces godly light and sight which is revelatory and transforming. There is a deceptive light as well, born in pride. Dark light is emitted from the absence of the cross and the Spirit of God.
Lucifer means “light bringer” but his light is dark light. Dark light blinds. “Be careful that the light in you is not darkness.” (Luke 11:35)
Job 18:5 “The light of the wicked indeed goes out, and the flame of his fire does not shine.”
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.”
1 Corinthians 2:7 “We speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory.”
Things today are headed for a climax. Can you see it?
The end of the new world order is a world built and formed by Satan and with the fruits of Satan: Killing, stealing, destroying and lying. The end of God’s new world – the Millennium is a world built on righteousness, peace, holiness and all things glorious.
►If the world is going to simply recover from the pandemic, which many are hoping for and even some Christians are praying for, and the riots will just go away, and the locust plagues will just disappear, and everyone can get back to their normal life of murdering the unborn, homosexuality and other sin, then that would obviously mean that the rapture / tribulation start is a long way off.
That would mean that “All things are going to continue as they have done.” (2 Peter 3:4)
No, world, your day is done, your cake is cooked, your song is sung!
Jeremiah 50:23 “How the hammer of the whole earth (Babylon / end time world) has been cut apart and broken! How Babylon has become a desolation among the nations!”
You have nothing to lose by surrendering to our Lord now, and everything to gain – for all glorious eternity!

Wise words of old:
This is a follow on from edition 17.
Many people are very interested in end time prophecy, but their own hearts are far from God. The Prophetic Scroll is obviously centred around eschatology, but not exclusively. What use is it knowing about many prophetic issues and not being ready in heart for our Messiah at His coming. In fact the very purpose of prophecy is not to tickle our ears but to turn us, heart and soul to Him. As our Messiah nears, our hearts should leap for joy with burning passion and enthusiasm.
With this in mind, I want to present to you a collection of quotes and wise words for your heart, from some wonderful old-school preachers and teachers. (No modern preachers here). As you read through these, please soften and open your heart and mind prayerfully to the voice of God. These are the very issues and fabric of life!
I've chosen these to see you and help you advance in the things of God and be ready for Him at His coming.
Many of these quotes are from memory, so they may not be exactly to the original letter. The content is what's important.
Derek Prince. (1915-2003)
He was born in India educated at Eton, Kings and Cambridge, London. His ministry began in World War 11. He was the most well known Christian Zionist. He was loved by millions and hated by many. He loved and stood for God's plan for Israel and the Jews. He lived in Jerusalem, but his ministry is headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, with ministry offices in most countries of the world. A true apostle of God!
●"The only source of real strength, stability, wisdom and power in this world of variables is the knowledge of God, which only comes through cultivating the fear of God." Anything not rooted in God will be swept away and overcome by evil."
●"Teach-ability comes from humility and bowing yourself down before our Lord."
●"Major evil forces that will intensify before the coming of the Lord: Apostasy in the church. Overthrowing of law and order with social unrest. Permissiveness, materialism and tolerance of evil in the church. Upsurge of the occult and witchcraft. Arising of anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism. The arise of Islamic extremism. The arising of secular humanism."
●Godliness originated form knowing Him is a life of profound meaning and reality. The one who has touched this spiritual reality will automatically identify with another who has also touched the same. At the same time you will be delivered from all spiritual obsession. You can't "manufacture" this spiritual reality."
●"The prophet Isaiah speaks of "Preparing the way of the Lord" For us that means preparing our lives and hearts. Paul the apostle says "To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord." This also relates to our lives this side of death. The more dead we are to the world, the flesh and demonic...the more we are alive to God and the more His presence will be a reality.
●"Too many Christians are enemies of the cross of Christ, not willing to die to earthly and worldly things."
●"The body is good servant, but a terrifying, fearful master."
●"The fear of death is natural, but we need a fear of the life of this evil world."
●"If something doesn't demand or cost a lot, it's worthless. Jesus doesn't demand a lot, He demands everything, but this challenge, commitment and sacrifice, makes life worth living." If you are not totally committed in these days, you will be spiritually vulnerable."
●"The beauty of spiritual holiness corresponds to beauty in the natural world."
●"The deep waters of the Bible will drown it's opponents and cleanse it's lovers."
●Time can take nothing from the Bible."
●"When you fear God, you fear nothing else."
●"Soldiers who take the Bible into battle with them, know its the most powerful weapon of all."
●"This Bible is the most hated book in history. It's been banned, burned, attacked, discredited and outlawed, yet it ends up the most beloved of all and the world's all time best seller."
●"Walking in the beauty of holiness comes from the application of the cross, the Blood, the Word and all by the Spirit through our faith."
●"The fear of the Lord is seldom mentioned, little understood, but most rewarding. Without it you will never know God. You might know things about Him, but you cannot know Him."
●"The antichrist hates the subject of eschatology (study of end time things). It will become more and more important and more and more despised. A major aspect of the Christian life is conflict. We need courage to get to heaven."
●"The one and only hope for worsening, suffering humanity, nature and environment is the return of our Lord."
●"In the last days there will be an outpouring of deception and evil. Pride is the most deadly sin. It will blind you and you will fall into the trap. Humility before God will open your eyes give you sight and keep you safe."
●"Many in the state of Israel are now recognising that their firmest and most influential friends are Bible believing Christians."
A.W. Tozer (late 1800s)
He was a prolific author and champion of truth. He was a prophet of his time, despised and loved but never neutral towards anything at all. A remarkable spiritual giant!
●"The deeper Christian life should be normal. It's only deeper because the average Christian today is so shallow."
●"We don't wear a cross, the cross wears us." "Too many are on stolen thrones"
●"The un-crucified flesh of the believer will rob him of purity of heart, Christ like character, spiritual insight, fruitfulness, vision of God's glory and the hearing of God's voice."
●"Sin can and does alter it's appearance without changing it's nature. Remove it, don't refine it."
●"We need a healthy bit of unbelief. Don't gulp down everything that comes dressed in religiosity."
●"Make your thoughts a clean sanctuary." Compromise with the world's ways will take the pressure off, but the cost will be immense."
●"Whatever keeps you from the study of God's Word, and lets in the cares of this world is your big enemy."
●"An average view of God is the cause of hundreds of lesser evils. Withdraw yourself to meet and know God in adoring silence and solitude." "You can't 'think' God down to your level."
●"The new cross of popular evangelism doesn't slay the sinner, it re-directs him to a cleaner, jollier way of living and saves his self respect. The life God offers is not an improved old life, but a liquidated life, then raised to newness."
●"The cross must be invited to do it's deadly work of destruction in us, then we are free." "Before fullness there must be emptiness."
●"A persons love for God is evident in the daily choices he makes. We may be know by: What we want most in life; what consumes our thoughts; what we use our money on; what we do with our leisure time; the company we keep; whom we admire; our average talk
●"The esteem of this world isn't worth the effort."
●"In the midst of growing universal darkness there are those who will never be satisfied with the lukewarm church or the world's offerings. They're athirst after God Himself."
●"With the world's light in us we will have difficulty paying the price required by God, because we will not see the value. The winds of the world are blowing towards hell. You need the wind in your face."
●"Shallow lives, and shallow philosophies are products of shallow shepherds. Many churches are hiding places for weak, spineless characters."
●"God's anger and wrath is as holy and pure as His love." "To be right with God, often means being wrong with man." "The church of today is in the darkness of Babylonian captivity."
●"In Christ you died, yet you're more alive than before. You lose your life to save it. You're on earth, but seated in heaven. You live here, but you're not at home here. You're strongest when weakest and though poor, infinitely rich. You're wisest when your own reason is defeated."
●"Christ is a friend to the repentant sinner, but a frightful terror to the proud. The proud and worldly will never find true rest. Humility and holiness are the paths to peace."
●"All heresy and false doctrine is rooted in pride and a lack of the application of the cross." Truth not lived and experienced is no better than error and equally as dangerous."
●"What we will is what we are."
●"If you don't know the lamb turned lion you are in more danger than you know."
Watchman Nee: (1903- 1972)
He spent most of his life in prison for spreading the gospel in China. He smuggled hundreds of hand written notes out of prison, which were then distributed and collaborated into hundreds of books. Prison authorities ripped his tongue out of his head trying to silence him. He was finally martyred in prison.
●"God's way of deliverance from sin is not by making us stronger and stronger, but weaker and weaker. I's not by strengthening the old nature, but by crucifying him." The cross strikes at the root."
●"Whatever remains untouched by the cross in us, remains untouched in others." "Ministry is life transference."
●"Humility and meekness of character is a sign of the work of the cross in that one's life. Pride is sign of the absence of the cross."
●"We will lose interest in the world and it in us when the cross is at work in us. Only through the power of the cross can we see the doom of the world."
●"When the world meets Christ in us it instantly becomes antagonistic and hostile."
●"Our light is not to make the world look good, but to expose it's darkness, hollowness, emptiness and God defying rebelliousness."
●"There is a Satanic power behind every worldly thing. The world is Satan's masterpiece."
●"God's valuation on a person is seen in the revelation given. This revelation brings authority. Only the one under authority can be an authority. Don't seek authority, seek to take up your cross and die, then God will give you what He wills, which will be perfect."
●"If Christ is your life, you are the most blessed, successful person on this earth."
●"Resurrection life presupposes passing through death and death is always the great eliminator. We're too quick to want life but not the eliminating power of the cross. The cross is the great subtractor. Christ and the cross is our destroyer and builder."
●"If we have really seen the light we will fall to the ground. The light of God enlightens but also slays. How hard it is for the proud to be humble. They have no light. Doctrine doesn't cause us to fall, except when mixed with light!"
●"Only brokenness through the cross makes us fit to see our Lord, hear His word and live a victorious life."
This is just a very small collection of quotes. They are life-changing if received and applied. May you be encouraged to move ever forward with our wonderful great and soon coming Messiah. May you be ready for Him at His coming for you.
I cut my spiritual teeth on the material from these men of God whom I consider my spiritual fathers. I began to study the many hundreds of books etc back in the late 1970s and still regularly do so today. I can testify that these are the words of a wonderful life.
Proverbs 4:18 "The path of the righteous is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day."
Psalm 62:5,6 "My soul, wait silently for God alone. My expectation is from Him, He only is my rock and my salvation. He is my defence, I shall not be moved."
Heaven or hell:
Little boxes all the same. It doesn't matter where you live, or does it? Actually, it really does! If you are living in the reality of God's will for you, you will never be able to be truly at home anywhere here on earth. Some think they will be happy if they lived in Hawaii. If you are not born of the Spirit of God you had better enjoy your home now, wherever it is, because you will shortly be moving to a new abode, infinitely worse than anyone can imagine...Hell
Don't follow what the traditions of the masses say and do, simple because it's tradition. You may think there is safety in numbers, but be very careful with that. History shows over and over that the majority is most times not right! To be safe and secure, follow our Lord and His Word. The Bible is the one and only really safe source of truth and life, especially in these days. It will pave your way to heaven!
In closing this is an oil paintings done by yours truly. It's my old style. Now I use a lot more collage and mixed media.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace!
