|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.|

What the world wants is a better place. They are working to try and bring peace to the world. They want a better life. Satan will oblige – for a while! Then comes swift, sudden destruction. The funny thing is that the people of God have already found what they’re looking for: Eternal peace, victory and joy. God’s “better place” is already here! The kingdom of peace is here, in our hearts and is soon coming in full universal manifestation!
Colossians 3:1-3 “If then you were raised with Messiah, seek those things which are above...set your mind on things above, not on things of the earth.”

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 devolution and decline of society:
We have just started the season of the feasts of the Lord, with Purim a few days ago. Purim is all about the failure of Israel’s enemies to defeat her. Purim is centred on Esther, who was chiefly responsible for saving her people. Are you called to be a modern “Esther?” Many readers are!

The spirit of error, untreated, advances like a cancer and mutates into a curse. Teachers or leaders who’ve fallen under a curse then become cult-like with an equally deceived following. I have witnessed many people fall right into this trap of late.
Some have turned on me with a vengeance calling me various names because I don’t and won’t support their doomed error, and because I warned them many times!
When you constantly resist and reject the things of God in favour of error, or rampant sin, you get “handed over.” (Romans 1:24-26) At this point, pride takes control and your conscience is seared and your free will becomes an enslaved, slave, controlled and dominated by the god of sin.
Enduring error, because it is a spirit, produces strife, stress and argument with God. “There is no peace for the wicked,” (Isaiah 48:22) no matter how much they cry, “Peace, peace!” (Ezekiel 13:10)
As goes the spiritual, so goes the natural! This is a spiritual principle. A lot of the reason for the chaotic, devolving world is the compromise of the modern church! For example the sequel or fallout of replacement theology in the church is seen in anti-Semitism in the world.
When God and His word are cast down by society, it has terrible knock-on effects. The nation begins to fall. A nation under God does not mean a born-again nation as such. It is a nation which has employed, elevated, and respects general godly biblical principles for a nation.
Throw God’s word out and the slippery slope of doom begins. Life becomes valueless except as a political football to score points, as we see so clearly in the mass-media.
The world walks over God’s word, which they have cast down. But the believer walks through God’s word ingesting it, consuming it and filling himself with wisdom and light!
In a world where God has been cast out, godless educational institutions become the gates of hell for the youth.
When God is removed from society, law becomes lawlessness driven by the law of sin and death. The church becomes a democracy and a dead tool of the system. When you forsake the law you are a law unto yourself and “yourself,” is fully blinded to spiritual reality.
When God and His word are cast down, Israel would have to fit in with the world-system and submit to the evil god of inter-faith and to Islam’s goal. The Jews would become nothing more than political chess-men, and Jerusalem becomes the devil’s pawn.
When God and His word are removed from society, the true born-again Christian must also be rejected or removed by persecution and martyrdom.
When God’s word is cast down, salvation becomes a mere, dead word and nothing more than a change in political ideology to suit the god of the world and his doomed hordes.
Right now we are seeing a massive worldwide spike in the martyrdom of Christians. The mass-media keeps their biased mouths closed, resulting in few being aware of it.
The mass-media hates God and His own. Their bias has turned from prejudice to hostility and now open hatred. This is clearly seen in their silence on the massive increase in the killing of innocent Christians worldwide.
►For the true Christian, martyrdom is the ultimate slap in the face for their murderers and supporters by the surrogation of silence. The martyr is promised special eternal reward, over and above other rewards he will receive.
The martyr dies, but receives the eternal Crown of Life!
It is the unsaved Jew, the Muslim, the counterfeit Christian, and the like, who should weep and howl and mourn with many tears when they are killed or die. They are not saved. Don’t cry for the true Christian martyr! Cry for yourself, lying mass-media, and destroyers - you are the ones who need a lot more than sympathy!
Here are just a few verses I’ve put together which succinctly describe the course of this present world. I’ve not included any comment. They speak volumes:
●Those who forsake the word (law of God) will praise the wicked”. (Proverbs 28:4) ●“There is no truth or mercy, or knowledge of God in the land, people break all restraint, with bloodshed after bloodshed and the land mourns.” (Hosea 4:1-2) ● Righteousness stands afar off, for truth has been cast down in the street”. (Isaiah 59:14) ●“Horror has taken hold of me because of the wicked who forsake your word (the law of God)”. (Psalm 119:53).
2 Thessalonians 2:11 “For this reason (not receiving the love of the truth), God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie.”
Job 38:15 “From the wicked their light is withheld...”
Psalm 36:9 “In your light we see light.”
You can’t live in peace in error! You can’t make peace with the devil, especially on his terms, and in violation of God’s word. There is a peace with the devil, which comes about when he has conquered a human heart, he has victory then, but it is the victory of hell. (Isaiah 14:9)
Psalm 43:3 “Send out Your light and Your truth; let them lead me and bring me to Your holy hill.”
Psalm 60:4 “You have given a banner to those who fear You, that it may be displayed because of the truth, that your beloved may be delivered.

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!
