|This ministry has a distinct kingdom, Messianic vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for the Jewish people and the church. My position is pre-trib! Personally: I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share these great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God.|

- Uranium found at new undeclared Iranian site. They are pushing the buttons alright! (The world, particularly the EU’s inability to bring Iran to book is giving them license to continue their march towards their repeated intended goal of attacking Israel.)
- Israel comes under heavy rocket attack from Gaza after the killing of Islamic Jihad terror leader. This morning (13th) rockets continue to fall on Israel. Palestinian Preseident says, "Israel must stop its aggression!"
- Islamic Jihad says, "We're going to war with Israel." (12th November)

These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
The following verses apply well to the mass media:
Job 9:4 “Who has hardened his heart against Him and prospered?”
Isaiah 43:13 “...I work and who can reverse it?”
Philippians 1:9 “I pray that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and all discernment...”
Jeremiah 7:28 “You shall say to them, ‘This is a nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God, nor receive correction. Truth has perished and been cut off from their mouth.”
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.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
The evil “I am”:
This is the ‘me now’ generation, ruled by ‘me, myself, I.’ It is the generation where the cry of the masses is “I am, and there is no other”. Here it is written in ages past:
Isaiah 47:10 “You have trusted in your wickedness. You have said, ‘no one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you; and you have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one else besides me.’”
One of the titles of our Messiah is “I am.” So, which ‘I am’ are you going to serve?
In the last few weeks I had two dramatic, most insightful encounters with two individuals, who had professed to be believers for years. Let’s call them Mr A. and Miss B.
Mr A has a foul mouth. I asked him to watch his language, and then spoke of something I had written here in The Prophetic Scroll (TPS). Well, Mr. A exploded and condemned me and TPS, with a tirade of swearing. To be honest, I was shocked to see the sudden extent of his antagonism.
Miss B then came along and exploded because I pointed out that the Bible condemned some of her witchcraft practises which she had tried to mix into her so-called Christianity. She instantly yelled like an electrified Jezebel, rejecting everything I said including the words of the Bible.
These two events are indicative and symptomatic of the world today, including some of the modern compromised churches.
Firstly, let’s analyse the events:
Both Mr A and Miss B were challenged to repent of sin. Both had a violent reaction to the conviction. It was not me or TPS or the Bible that they were offended at, but the personal application of conviction repentance and change, which was now on the table.
It was the conviction that they tried to get rid of by choosing the way of confrontation, and hostility. The way of spineless love would be to say nothing and tolerate it. The way of real godly love is the way of rebuke, and correction. (2 Timothy 3:16) If the individual will not receive it, so be it.
In the light you see the truth, but you also see sin. The light of God will reveal it and what to do about it. The darkness will hide it and attack the light! You can only repent from sin. If you remove what is called sin, re-name it, or water it down, no repentance is required and anything goes.
A hazy spiritual light will give you unclear half truths.
There are a number of bad things at work within many people. They want nothing standing in the way of self’s sin. They want no conviction. They are their own “I am.”
They want to bring people, ministries and the Bible down because it correctly identifies sin and opposes their participation in it. They try to exalt themselves above all authority.
They must tear down the things of God to give expression to their sin-nature.
The world and its god, fallen man and his god, are speeding down the road to soon coming doom.
●These end-times are bringing our Lord closer. ●The antichrist is also getting closer.
●The Man of holiness is drawing near. ●The man of sin is drawing near.
But for sin to flourish, holiness must be cast down. This is the state of the world today.
The problem with many today is that they are deceived, ignorant, don’t care, are proud, with no knowledge of God, and no restraint and discipline.
Most people today are a living offence to God. Of course, they can’t see that, because they are in the dark. It is the responsibility of the church to shed God’s light into this fallen world now.
As the end of the age approaches, the true church is becoming clearly visible in the light of God’s truth, and so is the false church! The eternal glorious kingdom of God, which will be the real survivor, is becoming more evident all the time, but it is exclusive.
By the way, the false church is not destroyed by God in the tribulation. It is destroyed, by its own god, the false Messiah!
The false church is becoming easier to spot. It is designed to make you comfortable in the world and in sin. It hides and obscures sin and its consequences. When the cross is obscured, sin is elevated.
The comfort of the world is not worth the effort of seeking. The world will comfort you in your sin and say, ‘it’s all okay now’. The word of God will not comfort you in your sin. It will condemn and convict you, and then empower you to change and become holy. That is what real true love is all about!
The well used term “There is now no condemnation,” is greatly misused in the church. In reality it is associated with repentance. It is conditional. Here it is:
Romans 8:1 “There is no condemnation to those who are in Messiah, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”
The woman caught in adultery was forgiven by our Lord. (John 8:10-11) But He said to her, ‘Now go and sin no more.’ This was the command of repentance and correction. She was not forgiven to continue in adultery.
Tradition holds that this was the “woman of sin” in Luke 7:37 and in fact was Mary Magdalene. If it was her, that means that her repentance led to her being the first one to see our Lord resurrected. It is a repentant attitude and life that cause spiritual sight.
May I say, that if you want a healthy spiritual life, break from the world’s ways and join and receive the word’s ways. Repent of sin now, but be advised, that a walk of repentance will do you more good than any exercises ever will!
Yes be free in your God-given liberty, but always keep an eye on the old sin nature and its desire to self-resurrect and trip you up.
Above all, in these dangerous days - exalt, uplift, revere and magnify the word of God in your life.
Be encouraged, stand strong – you can and must!

Review of the Prophetic Scroll and what’s ahead.
This website has become very popular and grown from a few hundred members and regulars to seven million in a short time. It has been a labour of love and a privilege to be at your service.
We are now in almost every nation in over fifty languages. The website is growing fastest in the eastern nations of Asia. The US, Canada, Australia, and South Africa are high up on the list, with Europe being the lowest.
The website now has audio updates included for your benefit. They will be updated from time to time.
The website has led to many incredible testimonies as well as invitations. I do a regular one hour (sometimes two hour) slot on Radio Preacher Man in the US, which is internet radio so it’s worldwide. This is part of the Christian Broadcasting Network.
When I refer to “we” that’s the website and me! I do this alone and will not bring it under the influence of any particular church and its doctrine. I receive no salary or compensation. In fact I often sit into the early hours working on this publication after a day involved in other things needed to bring in some money.
I must just add that I would really like to give myself fulltime to this endeavour, but financial support / donations are needed to keep the wheels turning!
I have had wonderful help and encouragement from a number of people. Joanne Smith of Rabbi Jonathan Chan’s Messianic Fellowship (Author of world best seller, The Harbinger) came along out of the blue, and has set up a prayer ministry for me and the Prophetic Scroll, for which I am very thankful. Other ministries have also undertaken to pray for me regularly at their own initiative. I have a close association with a number of Messianic ministries.
Some of the earlier editions had a number of style and grammar errors, which drove one of the regular readers up the wall, so he came along and offered his editing services free. Thank you Stan Fourie, you’ve been a great help.
In the near future I will be setting up a regular audio conference with a number of prophecy teachers worldwide.
I will be bringing you news soon of an affiliation with a number of ministries in Israel. I can’t share any more on that yet.
The big bottom line is that The Prophetic Scroll is a calling of God. It is His work. As such it will always remain directly submitted to Him and His word. His ancient scriptures will remain central, unchanged and interpreted literally unless the context is obviously allegorical. I will endeavour to bring you the wisdom and full spectrum of the scriptures as God leads. There is great safety and security in truth and an open heart. My mission and purpose will always be to help you along this way.
This ministry was birthed in my heart by God back in 1980, and took various forms. In 2009 it took on its present form.
The central vision and purpose is to bring to you the prophetic word as revealed in the scriptures. It is to unfold this, the greatest drama of all time as we progress to the climax of the ages. The purpose is to outline truth, warn against error and reveal what has been removed or added to the scriptures in modern times.
This ministry will always stand with and for truth affirming God’s ways and will always come against error and deception. We will move forward on the highway of holiness. Many will be eternally shocked when they realise that they have not been running the race of maturity, but running the race to keep up with the Joneses! Many will expect to go to the marriage feast of the Lord, but will end up at the feast of whores and vultures.
The purpose is to continuously mix ministry for your head and your heart. It is also to challenge and warn against some of the huge and fast growing deceptions out there.
The purpose is not to take the place of church, but to fill the huge gaps in modern churchianity! Today very few churches have any interest whatsoever in prophecy, end-times and related issues. They are the blind leading the blind.
Above all, the purpose is to help you to be prepared to stand before our great God and Saviour in confidence.
This ministry is a call to anyone open to the truth and keen to move forward with our Lord. It is call to all to get ready. It is a call to the lost sheep of Israel, as well as all the unsaved. It is a call to the backslider to come back fast. And it is a call to much of the church to break free from enslavements to Babylon.
This ministry is a call to the believing children of Abraham, Jews, Gentiles and Arabs to be reconciled as one in Messiah. This is the true Messianic vision.
This ministry is a warning to churches propagating replacement theology. It is a warning to others like the emergent church movement and it is a warning to some within Messianic Judaism who are becoming exclusive and legalistic, although many are doing just fine. This ministry will always warn you against one of the most dangerous and deceptive forces today, the Multi- Faith movement.
By the way, the Messianic movement includes Jew and Gentile. Messianic Judaism is the group becoming too exclusive.
The Prophetic Scroll will continue to be filled with quality imagery. Many of the pictures are my own. I would also like to embark on video creation and production, but that will depend on the appropriate money coming in.
The “News and Commentary” section at the top of each edition is not designed to bring you current news in a more general way. I select recent news items from many sources that have a particular relevance to Bible prophecy or spiritual things on the go now.
The Prophetic Scroll; persecution and testimonies!
This website continues to come under attack from certain types. Most people have been very positive and thankful, but some have chosen to use all sorts of means to cause trouble. At the moment the website is being attacked every day by hackers using auto responders.
I have had some people driven by incredible hatred try to bring me down with the most outrageous personal email attacks.
I have had the miserable duty of “handing some over to Satan for destruction” as required by the scriptures. These have been people with a relentless attack. They’ve disappeared afterwards.
Many of the attacks have come from people of other churches, simply because I challenge them.
Some churches really don’t like anyone rocking their comfortable sleepy cradles. As you would be aware, I am no fan of institutionalised, organised denominationalism.
Sometimes the attacks are discouraging, but I soon realise that that is the purpose of the enemy and I then rise up in anger. That’s normally when I have to apologise afterwards!
On the other hand I have had so many wonderful testimonies. Many have really been over the top and others have been calm collected thank-yous. A number of churches have let me know that they have changed course completely as a result of the Prophetic Scroll.
I’ve had some outrageous requests. The worst has to be the email from some individual who presumed that I lived in his city. He said we had to meet urgently because the Lord had told him that he was one of the two witnesses and I was the other! He was either in fellowship with the wrong Lord or had eaten too much pizza.
I’ve been so privileged to meet (albeit online) so many incredible and wonderful people and really been thrilled that there are so many who have such a hunger for our Lord and His truth in these days.
Unfortunately there are some who are so arrogant, proud and obnoxious they’re beyond help.
I’ve often wondered what it is that causes some people to receive the truth and others to reject it. It is a heart attitude. When confronted with truth some will not lay aside their pre-formed self-orientated opinions and agendas. These will never find the truth.
On a personal level:
My background in the media has given me a desire to know the news and what’s behind it. The only difference now is that I really have a desire to share it all, knowing that God here, I have little interest in worldly and self orientated things. My total purpose and desire is to know my God, be known by Him and make Him known.
Early in my Christian life, I developed a desperation to know our Lord more. I resigned from the newspaper and began reading my Bible through cover to cover, which I’ve done three times. I cut my spiritual teeth on the old school hell and brimstone, fiery preachers, for which I’m eternally grateful and still read their material often. I went to Bible schools and set myself on this new spiritual journey.
Long ago I used to collect antiques. I got rid of most of them in the early 80s but I kept a few items. Recently a friend sitting in my lounge remarked that these items reflected much of my calling and spiritual life. I had not realised that.
I kept an antique hand operated printing press, a candle powered magic lantern (forerunner to the projector). I kept two trumpets from the 1800s. I kept a gold- plated compass and a gold and silver chemical balance or set of scales.
The printing press and the magic lantern relate to publishing and photography. The trumpets relate to God’s judgement and His call to gather and get ready. The compass relates to direction finding and the scale relates to God’s justice.
Here they are:
I’m not fully Jewish, but have Jewish blood in me. I grew up in a Jewish neighbourhood. From my very early days I had a strong Jewish influence in me through my mother who taught all her life in a Hebrew junior school. We grew up celebrating the feasts. As kids we went to Sunday school as well. So thanks to my mom, I had an exposure to both Christianity and Jewish life in my younger days. I was a typical teenage rebel, but in 1976 had a dramatic conversion into our Lord’s family and kingdom.
I’ve never backslidden, sometimes foreword slidden too slowly, but since salvation, always had a passion for the truth.
Over the years this has become one of my favourite verses:
●2 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.
If you set your heart, mind and soul to live firstly for our Lord all your priorities will fall into place. Living for God gives you purpose, vision and victory and allows you to then live for others as He directs.
In fact the biggest problem with the world today is the antithesis of this verse. Most people live for themselves all the time.
In my much younger wilder days, I broke my neck and was badly injured in a skydiving accident as well as others incidents in my days as a war correspondent. Recently, things have deteriorated and I’m partially crippled now, battling to walk and constantly in pain. I need to have two new knee joints, but I’m kind of attached to my present ones! I’ve been trying to get a “disabled parking” licence. Man, that’s not easy!
Anyway, I’m privileged to still be mobile and in my Lord’s service.
The way ahead:
My friends, we are right at the dawn of some of the most exciting, wonderful and terrible times the world has ever seen or ever will. The future will be a mine field of false doctrines, attacks and deceptions. At the same time it will be a time of safety, growing glory and stability in Messiah, for those who are His and have set their minds hearts, souls and everything else on Him.
The Prophetic Scroll will be there to help you through whatever lies ahead. I will be identifying great troubles even before they hit and present to you the way of escape and victory.
Our Lord has a plan for you, especially tailor made just for you. I will help you to find it and walk in it. I will be encouraging you to share whatever God shows you to share with others. Together we will go into this dark night, with God’s light in our hearts. We will walk forward in confidence and security even in the face of death.
I will be sharing with you a lifetime of amazing revelations that our Lord has given me over the many years. These still come along regularly. As we draw near to our Lord He draws near to us with inexhaustible revelation and wisdom.
I have so much more and so many amazing “revelations” to share with you that I have never touched on before.
I will be sharing with you dramatic exciting visions of the glory-filled future for us.
Because we are now in a fast changing and developing spiritual environment, both good and bad, The Prophetic Scroll will adapt, change and move on with God as He leads. We will never get stuck in a rut.
Even now I sense prophetically, that we are approaching the outpouring of the Spirit of God like never before and the spirit of evil at the same time. Untold masses will be saved and untold masses will die. Peace or torment will be the order of the times that lie ahead.
God has a call and plan for your life. That may sound like a cliché, but it is all part of His purpose. In fact it is the very reason you were born. You may not see it all now but you will. As we head into ever intensifying “birth pangs” people will come looking for you. They will give up on the world and want the Kingdom of God. Multitudes will be in that valley of decision. This is where you come in!
Some upcoming editions will be:
►Timing: What we can and can’t know.
►Israel, you are not alone.
►The Fruits of truth.
►Why so many will go to hell.
►Revisiting the rapture (this will be a shocker.)
►How to use end-times in witnessing.
►Amazing revelations in numbers and colours. (This will rattle many cages!)
►I will do new appropriate editions as the world situation changes.
Please look into this website often for new editions news and updates.
Today very few people are even slightly aware or interested in these end-time events. They’ve been very successfully fashioned after this world by its god, Satan. Many are filled with friendly demons and have no idea. If God opened the veil and they could see; they would be dumb struck with horror.
On the other hand there are many who light up with real genuine interest when presented with these things. These ones at least have an open heart and are prepared to question. They are the ones who will go forward to salvation.
And by the way, the masses of Jews who will look upon our Messiah and see their Messiah soon, will be saved to the Jewish Messiah, the King of the universe. They will not become nice little blind products of the Babylonian Christ as presented in most luke-warm pagan-possessed churches, with their Satan-filled traditions of the occult like Christmas and Easter!
It is our Lord who’ll open their eyes and lift the veil. He will open their eyes to Himself and a Messianic, Hebraic belief and practice. The best many Christians can do is stand with and for God’s work in this regard, but back out personally and shut their mouths. Don’t try to reintroduce Jews to Babylon. They’ve been there before!
There is one huge big common detonator running through all church history since the advent of Constantine and that is that all the church fathers including those of the reformation were anti-Semites.
No sir, the Jewish Messiah, Yeshua is King of the Jews, in holiness and all glory! He is the one and only great God.
O, my friends, it is so well worth it to follow our Lord. Please never give up nor turn away from Him even if there are things difficult to understand (and there will be more of those coming along.)
Stand for truth, stand for our Messiah, stand for Israel and the Jewish people in these days. Stand against the god of this world and all half-heartedness. Be radical, be different, be a child of glory!
I took this picture of my friend, game lodge owner Willie Joubert, easing out with one of his friends out in the African bush.
Job 39:8 “The range of the mountains is His pasture and He searches after every green thing.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
