- 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 188. December 29th 2013
The earth in danger:
The earth is not the world. A definition is required. The original word used for earth (ga’) means the physical earth made up of all the land, water, plants etc. The word for world (kosmos) refers to the social, political, economic systems of man and all his doings. We could accurately say that the earth is adorned with, or wearing the world. The Bible sometimes merges them together but most times separates them distinctly.
The earth will not end, but the world will end soon and be replaced by God’s new world upon the restored curse-free earth. The crown of thorns positionally, took the curse on nature, but it still has a future completeness coming just like our salvation.
In this edition I want to deal primarily with the earth and not the world although we obviously need to touch on the world a little as well, because they are inextricably linked.
These are just some of the earth - events and dangers:
●We are due to go through the remnants of the nucleus of Comet Ison in the next few weeks. The main nucleus has fragmented into thousands of smaller pieces. Some of these pieces still remain very big. They have fanned out into a very wide field, through which the earth will be passing until mid- January.
It has also been recently discovered that this debris field is being accompanied with a poisonous dust field. Prion dust, full of heavy metals and also full of diseases-causing particles is on the way too.
We are already seeing a large increase in meteor showers.
●Oxygen from plankton and kelp in the sea is being depleted at a rapid rate due to the effects of the Fukishima nuclear disaster. Carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere are not normal.
●We are seeing a spike in volcano and earthquake activity. 2013 broke the record for volcanic eruptions. Earthquakes are intensifying in frequency and strength.
●We are about to see a polarity flip in the sun’s magnetic field. This is not new or rare, but does cause extra solar flares and weather as well as communication problems.
●We are seeing extreme weather of all types all around the world. Australia has just recorded its hottest ever year. Weather is going crazy in the UK, Europe, the US, Asia, Israel and in most nations. All-time records are being broken all over the world.
●Floods and famines are intensifying.
●God uses natural events to get the attention of the people, but few will listen and some will even rebel against the living God for bringing judgement rather than looking at the reason in their own lives for the judgement.
Why is the earth beginning to “crack”?
Let’s presume that the seven-year climax of all time, the tribulation period, will begin on the Feast of Trumpets 2014 (and it is looking more and more likely). The Bible speaks of labour pains and beginning of sorrows before the time, so we can expect many labour pains beforehand.
These labour pains will be a minor version of the much greater events of the tribulation.
The tribulation will include the greatest upheavals, judgments and catastrophes the world has ever seen in all fields. These will be social, political, military, wars etc and of course the earth itself in massive upheaval – our subject for this edition.
If the tribulation is not due to start any time soon, then we won’t see labour pains will we? The big question is – are these labour pains we are seeing now going to intensify, or are they just normal events? You be the judge.
What lies ahead for 2014?
There is a hidden pattern in the Psalms that loosely relates prophetically to the recent years. The last two digits of the Psalm corresponds to the last two digits of the year. For example Psalm 48 correspond to 1948, and so on. Don’t go overboard on this; let the Spirit of God show what is of significance and what isn’t.
Here is Psalm 114, which corresponds to and has prophetic significance for 2014.
Psalm 114:3 “The Sea saw it and fled; Jordan turned back, the mountains skipped like rams, the little hills like lambs. Verse 7-8 “Tremble O earth at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob, who turned the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a fountain of waters.”
This Psalm is frightening indeed and is a harbinger of terror for the New Year. It speaks prophetically of a “sea fleeing.” This could be a reference to the sea receding a few minutes before a massive incoming Tsunami. “Jordan turning back” could be a reference to this nation turning back on its peace covenant with Israel, which has been in force for many years. We know from Isaiah 17 that Jordan will be one of the nations destroyed with Syria.
“Mountains skipping and trembling” refers to earthquakes and volcanoes. Yes we have always had these things, but we are now in a time of massive escalation.
The phrase, “who turned the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a fountain of waters” refers to God’s miracle working power with and for Israel, which will no doubt be in operation this new year as the world and her priests come against God’s plans for Israel.
This Psalm has an ominous message whichever way we look at it.
If we are heading for the tribulation period, 2014 is going to be a year of massive earthly upheavals and troubles. This will be the year in which God supernaturally provides for Israel, refreshes and sustains her in her time of growing trouble.
Watch for developments relating to the soon-coming new Temple to be built on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. It is very likely that this will be part of the peace accord now being worked out. It may also come about because of a sudden war. Either way it is coming soon!
We are commanded to watch and pray and this is what I am doing. I am not setting dates for the rapture. I am watching and always will. What I see is the pieces of the puzzle falling into place fast.
●The birth pangs and labour pains will tell us how close we are.
They will tell us if we are heading for a tribulation start at the Feast of Trumpets (25th September.) The Spirit of the living God will shed His light on these things as we get closer. He will speak and “show us things to come.”
It has always been in God’s character to warn before His judgements fall. He speaks and warns through His servants. We are now seeing more and more of God’s servants, with a ready ear, warning and speaking of judgment to come.
In coming editions I will share with you what I am seeing and hearing. This is going to be a very exciting year.
The early months of 2014 will be the harbinger. They will speak of what is coming later in the year - or not!
What or who is the cause of this terrible judgement?
Isaiah 24:5 “The earth is defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance and broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore the curse has devoured the earth, and those who dwell in it are desolate. Therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned and few are left". Verse 19-20 “The earth is violently broken, the earth is split open, and the earth is shaken exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and it shall totter like a hut; its transgression shall be heavy upon it, and it will fall and not rise. It shall come to pass in that day that the Lord will punish on high the host of the exalted ones and on the earth the kings of the earth.”
Verse 20 above says: “The earth will fall and not rise again.” This does not mean it will be forever destroyed. It means it will not rise again in its present form. Once the tribulation period is over, the earth will rise again in its new curse-free form.
Isaiah 13:11-13 “I will punish the world for its evil and the wicked for their iniquity; I will halt the arrogance of the proud, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. I will make a mortal more rare than fine gold. Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth will move out of its place in the wrath of the Lord of hosts and in the day of His fierce anger.”
Hosea 4:1-9 “There is no truth or mercy or knowledge of God in the land...they break all restraint with bloodshed after bloodshed. Therefore the land will mourn; and everyone who dwells there will waste away...your people are like those who contend with the priest...your prophet will stumble with you. Because you have rejected knowledge (of God), I will reject you from being a priest for Me...And it shall be like people like priest.”
In these three powerful passages above we see the great key as to why all the judgements are coming. Let’s list them:
The “people of the world” transgress against God’s laws and covenants (this includes God’s land covenant with Israel – the one-state solution). The host of the “exalted ones” are principalities, powers and demonic spirits. The” kings of the earth” is a reference to the world’s leaders in various fields, including politics.
We see “evil” and “wickedness”, “arrogance”, “pride” and” haughtiness”. This is against God and His word. If you remove God’s word, there is no such thing as sin and everything becomes variable. But not with God!
Finally in Hosea we see the chief culprits for the judgements to come upon the earth. These are the priests and their false prophets. This refers to church leaders who have watered down the word, and have a message that is a mixture of occult, sin and truth all thrown together.
This is why all the big judgements of God are coming. It is the people, the priests, the demon spirits, the world’s leaders, the evil, pride and arrogance against God and His word all together. Perhaps the most significant culprits of all are the church leaders who reject the simplicity of God's word in its fullness.
You see, the world’s leaders- political social and in the entertainment fields- have spurned the gospel, so that their love of sin and evil can go forth unrestrained. This has created a world-people who love to have it so. Now the sick church leaders come and give the people just what they want. In fact they are guilty for the sin in the world, because they have not been “light and salt” to the world.
►I’m not going to go into this now, because I have so many times before, but of course one of the big reasons for the coming judgments is the peace covenant soon to be made with Israel and the antichrist. It brings war and not peace. So, watch for this event.
What the world is ignorant of is that you do not “mock God” and get away with it!
As this earth begins to go through massive upheavals, shaking and convoluted destruction, many will repent, but many will turn on God screaming the odds at Him in their stupidity and deception.
Dreadful regret will pass over the peoples of the world, terror and horror will fill them to overflowing in the face of God’s judgements and His glorious victory over all sin.
Joel 3:14 “Multitudes, multitudes are in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.”
Why does God judge the earth?
The earth has not sinned. The world has. So why judge the earth? The reason is simply because the earth and the world are inextricably linked. The earth is the home of the world. The earth is the kitchen cupboard of the world. The earth is the beautiful gift of God to the world. The world can go nowhere but to and into the earth!
Yes, I also think it’s unfair because I love this earth (and hate the world) but this is the high and holy, eternal, all knowing, holy God that we are dealing with. His ways are right and supreme.
Some may protest and say, “God is love” so He would not cause or allow these things to occur.
Is God love? No He is not. He is love His way. His love includes hatred for sin and evil! His love is not all- embracing of sin. His love is holy, righteous, pure and clean. His love includes the cleansing of the world and the universe. His love is the essence of the cross and its purifying work. His love includes the creation of hell for the above mentioned reasons. This is true LOVE.
There’s a very easy way to tell how close to our Lord you really are. It’s shocking, but it’s real! Can you say “amen” to God’s righteous judgements and His word coming to pass for this earth and world? If you can’t it is because you love this world and are too deeply rooted in it and the cross has not done its work in you.
The end of it all:
Daniel 7:18-22 “But the saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever.”
Romans 8:21 “The creation itself will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.”
The earth is about to go through its dramatic end-time shaking, rocking, quaking destruction, but it will not be totally destroyed. God will supernaturally restore it to its pre-Adamic, curse-free glory for the thousand-year Millennium.
The world will be destroyed. Every person not saved in the tribulation period will be cast into hell at the Second Coming. Every single ordinance, tradition, socio-political, economic and other orders that make up the world system will be destroyed and replaced by a world under the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He is the Warrior of all warriors and will soon destroy all warriors against His works.
Personally I say a great amen to the coming judgement of all those who are cruel to animals and who destroy nature and the environment.
So at the end of the day we get a new world and a new earth without sin, evil, wickedness, pride, arrogance and the like. We get a new world, earth and universe of purity and holiness forever.
I don’t think any of us can even begin to comprehend the glory that lies ahead. Just trying to get your head around those two verses above is quite something!
What you must do:
It doesn’t really matter exactly when the rapture occurs and the tribulation begins. What does really matter is your response to these things. Most people are “days of Noah” types, but some are awake, hearing and seeing the warning signs. For me personally these issues are of such gravity.
You must be prepared to strengthen your faith. If we are on course for dramatic end-time developments this New Year, you can be very sure that persecution against Christians will arise from almost every corner of the earth.
Hebrews 12:1 ”Let us lay aside every weight and sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.”
2014 is the year for endurance in our faith and it is also good to know the following verse:
1 Thessalonians 1:10...”He delivers us (true discipels of Massiach) from the wrath to come.”
We are close to the last call to get our lives right in holiness and purity before our God and King.
This is my prayer for you and for me: Just and true are Your ways, King of the saints, we glorify Your name and fear and tremble at your presence. You are set apart and holy. My strength and courage is in You, My God, Lord, King, Saviour and great Friend.
Isaiah 8:14 “He will be as a sanctuary, but a stone of stumbling and a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, as a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem. And many among them shall stumble; they shall fall and be broken, be snared and taken.”
Deuteronomy 4:30-31 “When you are in distress (Lit=tribulation) and all these things come upon you in the latter days, when you turn to the Lord your God and obey His voice, He will not forsake you nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers, which He swore to them.”
Ezekiel 36:22-27 “Thus says the Lord God, “I do not do this for your sake O house of Israel, but for My holy name’s sake, which you have profaned among the nations, wherever you went. And I will sanctify My great name which has been profaned among the nations and the nations shall know that I am the Lord, when I am hallowed in you before their eyes”, says the Lord God. “For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all the countries and bring you into your own land. Then I will sprinkle clean water on you and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from your filthiness and from your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new Spirit within you. I will take the heart of stone out of you and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgements and do them.”
I took this picture in the magnificent Etosha Game Reserve, Namibia. It represents our need in these days. We need to cling to and be entwined in God’s truth and His ways. We need to cling to each other and be involved in each other’s ways and lives – nourishing and supporting one another.
Job 17:9 “The righteous will hold onto his ways, and he who has clean hands will be stronger and stronger.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
