- Covid 19 virus is still spreading worldwide. Watch for this to level off. Watch for the infection rate to begin to decline. It will happen and soon. Watch for many leaders to turn to God. Some are!
- China is to lift lockdown on April 8th as 1.5 billion worldwide go into lockdown.
- This pandemic is going to take a large chunk out of world economic growth and set back nations and people already struggling.
- Interestingly the word “Corona” means “crown” it is also a fiery ring surrounding the sun visible at an eclipse. Does it symbolise a crown of fiery judgement?

Watchmen who spy with their little eye:
A major goal of The Prophetic Scroll (TPS) is to be ahead of the curve. It is to have eyes looking into the future. It is to hear the word of the Lord and to inform and warn of things to come.
Here at TPS you will find teaching and encouragement for your heart and your head. You will be kept safely in the arms of our Lord, through the work of the Spirit of God.
The spread and growth of the coronavirus is often represented as a curve in a graph, with the largest numbers at the peak of the curve.
I have some good news for you:
The coronavirus has run its course and is over! You might think I’m mad! Well, there are two issues here. Firstly, that is the sense I get from the word of the Lord. Secondly that is what the graphs and charts are saying.
Of course it’s not over in reality yet, but the curve in most places has peaked. You may surprised to know that China’s Wuhan Province where the virus started and killed many is already back to normal with all services, factories transport and industries back to normal operation. (Look it up) Other nations are seeing a flattening of the curve after the peak. A few are still seeing an increase.
We are to look out into the future and not right at our noses. Yes I do believe there is going to be a lot of difficulty ahead, but the human spirit has strong bounce-back ability.
Stock markets are always anticipatory of future economic fundamentals. They price in the future now. We have seen world markets crash and then crash again. But in the last week or so they have registered repeated record runs higher, including the largest ever one day point gain in history on the Dow.
Markets create many signals including the reliable “key reversal signal” which is a capitulation to the downside and a “V” shaped spike higher forming a number of higher highs on the charts. This is just what we have now.
Can the markets still go down? Yes they can take another hit, but the main, furious downside is over.
All the pessimists including Christian pessimists can only see the reality of sick, dying and dead people everywhere! They can’t see the light in the tunnel because they are the dark tunnel.
The mass media have created a no-man’s land riddled with mine-fields saying, ‘don’t resist our opinions’. They have created a fortified ‘city’ full of so-called giants of their own opinions.
Let’s put this into spiritual terms with our two good friends of antiquity – Joshua and Caleb.
Joshua and Caleb:
These were two of the twelve spies sent by Moses to spy out the Promised Land of Israel.
This story relates prophetically to Israel’s future salvation, and also applies to God’s promises for the Christian.
We should all know the story. All the spies saw the same thing which was a land flowing with milk and honey, but with big giants and fortified towns. Ten came back and accurately reported what they saw and thought. They said that it was impossible to defeat these giants and the fortifications.
Joshua and Caleb saw the same things but in faith, looked beyond and came back with an outrageous, radical, good report in light of all the bad things. It defied eyes, ears and logic!
We have exactly the same picture with David and Goliath, which speaks very much of Israel’s fight for survival today.
Joshua and Caleb refused to see themselves as submitted grasshoppers controlled by evil.
The ones who went into the Promised Land had wholeheartedly followed God.
The ten evil spies had significant influence. They held the majority consensus, because they thought they could see with their eyes. The Bible says that the caused the entire congregation to murmur. (Numbers 14:17-38)
The ten with the evil report led the entire camp of the children of Israel to banishment by God in the wilderness, where they all died of the plague. Joshua and Caleb were the ones to lead the new flock into the land.
The ten spies are represented in the mass-media. They see with eyes that cannot see.
Tragically, much of the church today not only carries the virus of the ten evil spies relating to Israel, they actually facilitate it with their anti-Semitism and replacement theology.
You must have spiritual eyes to hear God’s trumpet warnings, or the holy, golden, shining sword is coming your way fast. (Deuteronomy 32:41, Ezekiel 21:9)
I believe that’s not politically correct today to say a sword is coming! – Voetsak!
Two pretty neat watchmen!
The twelve spies were sent to spy out the land. Only two of the ten were God's watchmen.
●The word “spy” is Strong’s H8446 meaning to seek, search and explore.
●The word “watchman” is Strong’s H6822 meaning to keep watch, or to spy out and observe. Note that the meanings are almost identical.
Today we have many self-proclaimed watchmen. They are part of the ten evil spy network! They spy out what they see. They report on what they see and speculate with variables. They are repeatedly wrong. (I heard of one who recently claimed that the rapture would take place on Purim, because that’s when Jews get drunk in the streets! – What garbage!)
Some people are so thickly deceived that even if you show them the truth, they will still believe a lie. That is because deception is primarily an evil spirit, which becomes imbedded if not cut out.
So, if the Covid 19 story is on the way out, have we learned the lesson? Many have. Many are talking of national repentance. Many joined for urgent prayer and still are. But many have not. These are those who never will. They are the doomed ones. Please don’t be one!
How many large biblical abominations present in the nations, that led to their national curses will go? Very few will!
What is important and coming soon is the next round of catastrophic judgment on this world. This is because of the overall place we are in prophecy. It will speed up.
The truly blind media and their blind sheep have denied God and His word. They have by extension denied mankind the ability to see sin, wickedness and abomination.
►Here is a most powerful lesson for you in these days:
Deuteronomy 8:2 “The Lord your God led you all these forty years in the wilderness to humble you and test you, to know what was in your heart. Verse 16: He might humble you and test you to do you good in the end.”
Psalm 106:14-15 “They soon forgot His works, they did not wait for His counsel, but lusted exceedingly in the wilderness and tested God in the desert, so He gave them their requests, but sent leanness into their soul.”
Some of these end-time things are great surgical tools for your heart!
Psalm 71:20-21 “You have shown me great and severe troubles, You shall revive me again, and bring me up again from the depths of the earth. You shall increase my greatness and comfort me on every side.”
2 Kings 6:16 “Do not fear, for those that are with us are more than with them.” The Lord opened their eyes to see mountains full of chariots of fire all around Elisha!
Welcome to TPS – your very own Joshua and Caleb for today’s exciting and unique times!
Edition 100. November 19th 2011
The tragedy of a failed church.
News events and comment.
●Leaks from a closed meeting in Jerusalem a week ago now conclude that Iran will have five nuclear weapons by April 2012! This means that window of prevention is closing fast. There has been much behind-the- scenes diplomatic activity as a result.
●Russia warns Israel that it would be making a "big mistake" if it attacks Iran.
●The suspension of Syria from the Arab League and the international focus on Iran's nuclear program will cause both nations to take a hostile "injured" stance like a wild animal cornered.
●Beware there is a new Hitler in the Middle East and just like Hitler of old, the world couldn't care. This new Hitler has many friends all with the motive of ridding the world of Jews. Ahmadinejad of Iran is his name.
●Hizbullah cancels leave of all militants and prepares war.
●Kenya, Tanzania, South Sudan and other central African countries form alliance to support Israel and help prevent the spread of Islam in their nations. Kenyan Prime Minister meets with Netanyahu and promises support. This represents some 138 million people. (Debka file)
●Abbas calls on Palestinians to start a new resistance against Israel.
●Palestinians accept the UN bid for statehood has failed, but they say will pursue it anyway.
●Saudi Prince Surki al-Faisal warns Israel not to attack Iran, saying it will have "catastrophic consequences."
The tragedy of a failed church.
Of course God doesn't fail and the "gates of hell will not prevail" over what He has and is building. The message to the church of Philadelphia in the Revelation of Jesus Christ is a picture of glorious success and victory, but that's only one small section of the church.
If you read God's own assessment of the church in chapters two and three of the Revelation, you be shocked!
Of course all those who are born of the Spirit of the living God in all churches are His family. He only has one body, not many. But we also need to look deeply into the scriptures and heed the many warnings of impending doom for a large part of the church.
One of the big reasons why the true church of the living God will forever be hated by the false church, and the world for that matter is because it forever stands exclusive, separate and holy unto God. It will never assimilate and merge with the multi-faith movement. There is an impassable gulf (Luke 16:26) between heaven and hell, the saved and the unsaved The cross of our Lord is the great divider.
The reason why the antichrist will be accepted with open arms is because he comes making peace, offering love acceptance, coexistence and tolerance of all religions. If all religions are equally valid, then the cross of Christ and shed blood of our Messiah was meaningless!
2 Corinthians 6:15-16 "What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever ? and what agreement has the temple of God with idols, for you are the temple of the living God."
You see, the world has elevated democracy to such a high level that the church has simply adopted it into the realm of religion as well. Because the majority thinks all religions are equally valid does not make it so. Of course we respect the people of other religions, but that's a different thing.
The great tragedy is that the world together with a great multi-faith religious movement will welcome the antichrist onto the world stage and give themselves to him. But if you think he will uphold true democratic values, have a look at these verses showing that he will quickly introduce a system of domination and control:
Isaiah 10:14 "By the strength of my hand (antichrist) I have done it, and by my wisdom for I am prudent; I have removed the boundaries of the people, and have robbed their treasuries...My hand has found like a nest the riches of the people, as one gathers eggs that are left. I have gathered all the earth; and there was no one who moved his wing, nor opened his mouth with even a peep."
Revelation 13:17 "He caused all both small and great, rich and poor, slave and free to receive a mark...and that no one may buy or sell except the one who has the mark..."
Rather than universalism, equity, democratic values and equality of all faiths, the antichrist will form a massive system of world control and domination, perhaps even worse than Marxist /Leninism. The nations of the world will be fooled by this "christ" and run to give their nations over to his control.
The multi-faith church will spearhead Satan's plan to control the world, but those who are truly born of the Spirit of God and are following Him, will see red lights flashing and separate themselves.
Yeshua / Jesus says "If you're not with Me and for Me you're against Me. (Matthew 12:30)
You cannot serve two masters. (Luke 16:13) You will love one and hate the other.
Note this very important issue in this amazing verse below. People can and will pretend to be true believers. They know all the right words and sayings, but their hearts are wrong.
Psalm 81:15 "The haters of the Lord would pretend submission to Him, but their fate would endure forever."
The Bible itself is God's handbook and instruction manual on how the church should be run.
1Corinthians 1:10 "Now I plead with brethren by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and same judgement." Verse 13 "Is Christ divided?"
Amos 3:3 "How can two walk together lest they be agreed". Disunity in the church is the largest cause of its failure.
One of the great tragedies of the failed church is that it is deaf to God's warnings!
Truth unites all those that love it, but truth in this modern day and age offends many people.
The truth is designed to offend. It offends the pride of life, so that it can be dealt with.
1 Peter 2:7-8 "The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone, a stone of stumbling and a rock of offence."
Truth shows how helpless you are in and of your own self effort. Truth illuminates Satan in the world and his host of demons. Truth shows that you need the cross of Christ. So what does the church do? It removes the offence. Galatians 5:11...The offence of the cross..."
I've said many times, it's very easy to spot the counterfeit. He has no cross, nor the marks of the cross on his daily life!
If you remove the cross and its effects on your life, you will easily fit in with the world and its traditions, religions, entertainment, and its ways. You will soon become accepted as one of them. You won't even see who's really pulling the strings in the background.
Luke 6:26 "Woe to you when all men speak well of you."
Proverbs 21:27 "The sacrifice (works) of the wicked is an abomination".
2John 1:6 "This is love, that we walk according to His commandments (truth / word)". What a staggering verse! How amazing is that? You know how many times people come up with, "that's not love". I don't know how many times I've been accused of not walking in love because I won't join my Christian friends worshipping the great Satanic god Hollywood! Well, here's one of the great definitions of what it means to walk in love! To walk in love is to walk in truth!!!!
Joshua 24:14-15 "Now therefore fear the Lord and serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods that your fathers served...Serve the Lord."
An easy way to get rid of counterfeits and troublemakers in the church is simply to preach the true gospel of offense. Preach Christ and Him crucified. Preach the need to take up your cross daily. They will quickly leave. Who is left behind is who you can really walk with on our journey.
The way of the truth is narrow...not wide all encompassing and universal. (John 14:6) The way of the modern church is all accommodating...destined for the wide open arms of the antichrist and an eternal hell.
There is only one narrow road to heaven, but millions of wide open roads to hell. (and Rome of course)
The entirety of the work of God with man starting in Eden all culminates in the cross of Calvary. It is the cross that is the great divider. It is the ongoing work and power of the cross that gives true insight, understanding and power to live a successful life God's way!
The way of God is this. Take up your cross daily and follow our Lord (Matthew 16:24)
"The message of the cross is foolishness to them that are perishing". So they remove it and become "enemies of the cross of Christ." (1 Corinthians 1:18) You can easily remove the cross, but you can't remove "the perishing" as a result!
Luke 11:35 "Beware that the light that is in you is not really darkness". Many preachers today preach Jesus in the church, but it's another Jesus! It's a jolly Santa Clause Jesus
If you set off on a very important one way once-in-a-lifetime very long journey, wouldn't you like to know that you're on the right road? Too many today are blind sheep, following their leaders in hope that he knows where he is going.
John 4:24 "Those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."
Mark 7:7 "This people honours Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. In vain they worship Me teaching as doctrines the commandments of men."
Oh Europe your eternal doom is before you!
►Here is an absolutely shocking, revolting, sickening program broadcast on BBC a few weeks ago on the state of the church in Europe, the new dark continent. (There's a video clip of some of the program on this website as well, just click play.) As I watched the full program on BBC, I could continuously almost hear the future screams from hell of the people and counterfeit ministers in the program.
This is all about atheists in the pulpit: (click the link below)
This program is shocking indeed, but it is all prophesied in the scriptures.
Here is another shocking bit of news on the state of the modern church. This link will take you to a story on the move from Christian Zionism to Christian Palestinianism.
The move away from God's plans for Israel, the Jews and Jerusalem is really speeding up. The Methodist, Presbyterian, Lutheran and many others are at the forefront.
A very easy way to get rid of all the confusion and to allow atheists in the pulpit, and to basically allow anyone to have their own democratic voice in the church is simply to say "Don't judge"
Those who say don't judge, have only one motivation and that is to allow evil and sin to flourish. Imagine saying to a judge "Don't judge." The Bible does not say "don't judge" It says "don't judge after the flesh"
(Please have a look at Edition 14 tilted "To judge or not to judge")
The truth is being cast down.
Isaiah 59:14 "...Righteousness stands afar off for truth is fallen in the street."
We are heading fast into a world of tremendous evil. The truth has been "cast down in the street" The cross is being removed more and more so that evil can flourish.
The church has failed in its responsibility to restrain evil.
Is your church teaching truth and growing in holiness and the fear of the Lord, or is it acceptable to the world?
We are to grow in the fear of the Lord and not the fear of the church fathers, reformers and the like.
Beware: Matthew 24:12 "Because lawlessness shall abound the love of many will grow cold."
Jeremiah 5:31 "The prophets prophecy falsely, and the priests rule by their own power; and My people love to have it so."
2 Corinthians 10:12 "We dare not compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they measuring themselves by themselves and comparing themselves among themselves are not wise."
Matthew 6:23 "If your (spiritual) eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is really darkness, how great is that darkness.!"
Isaiah 5:20 "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness."
The word 'contaminate' means to mix with the impure and unclean. That's the state of much of the modern church!
Deuteronomy 12:29-32 "When the Lord God cuts off from before you the nations which you go to dispossess, you shall displace them and dwell in their land, take heed to yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them...and that you do not inquire after their gods saying "How did these nations serve their gods? I also will do likewise. You shall not worship the Lord your God in that way...whatever I command you, be careful to observe it; you shall not add to it nor take away from it."
Leviticus 18:30 "Therefore you shall keep My commandments, so that you do not commit any of these abominable customs (traditions)"
Truth is not variable, it's absolute.
The old ways
The old ways are the new ways for many who've left the old ways and gone of astray. The old ways are the new ways for many who want to liven up and invigorate their spiritual lives. Isn't it amazing that here we are in 2011 talking about how radical the 2000 year-old Bible is. You see, the major issues of life don't change or get old and out of date. Life and it's principles are eternal. "The word of God is life"
Jeremiah 6:16 "Stand in the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls..."
We have an immensely important and enormous responsibility to God to the unsaved, to saved and to Israel. We dare not interfere with the truth and make it relevant to a fallen world
●The truth may hurt but lies will comfort you on your journey to hell. A classical example of this was the work of mother Theresa. Her philosophy was to comfort people of other faiths, dying in her hospice, without even attempting to convert them.
There are many churches who are led by mature men who know our Lord and His word. They are doing their job very well. They are able to see the attack of the enemy and defend themselves and their flock. They are well able to lead many people into all truth. They are becoming the minority.
It's a real blessing and privilege to know our Messiah, to follow Him and His ways. In this day that will make you a minority and a complete oddball, but it will make you a friend of the living God.
In closing you might like to (please do) watch / listen to this clip by Grace Williams tilted "Hide me now." it's a beautiful piece of music.
Psalm 118:19 "Open to me the gates of righteousness; I will g through them, and I will praise the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord, through which the righteous shall enter."
Psalm 119:1-2 "Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord! Blessed are those who keep His testimonies , who seek Him with a whole heart."
Heaven or hell:
Young woman you had better be worried if you have not accepted the finished work of the cross of Calvary. You friends may tell you that there are many ways to be saved. They may tell you that God would not send anyone to hell. They are wrong. Now while you are alive you can change your mind, not afterwards!
The way of our Lord is the way to glorious victory now and in time to come. It really is a celebration. Oddly, submitting to God is the way to real liberty and freedom.
Here's a painting by El Greco done in 1580 depicting Christ carrying His cross.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace!
