This website is distinctly Messianic, comprising the Abrahamic expression of faith, which is to the Jew and the Gentile with a Hebraic character. We affirm the fullness of absolute truth contained in the Bible, embracing the cross and identifying with the convocations of the Lord as seen in the Feasts, the Sabbath and Passover. We reject the legalism of many in the Messianic movement. We reject the Babylonian Pagan traditions of the church. We consider all people Jews and Gentiles and those in all churches who are truly born of the Spirit of the living God to be one family. We reject institutional organised denominationalism (division). We foresee a great falling away of much of the church in these days, while at the same time a great restoration of part of the church. We affirm and identify with God's plan and call to the Jewish people in these days and will support and stand with them as future brothers and sisters. We stand happily with pre / mid/ and post tribbers. Our slant is cautiously pre-trib, but hey, post tribber...you're still family! Today much error has been added to Christendom and much truth has been removed. The Prophetic Scroll's aim is to deal with these issues and assist you on your road to glory.
I was saved in 1976 and became extremely interested in Bible prophecy, being an ex war-correspondent and photographer. My calling and aim is to share the dramatic and all-important issues of prophecy relating to our day. This is a calling to unfold and share the wisdom of God as contained in His word. There is also much teaching in these pages for your heart. It’s not all prophecy! Please study these things further yourself and understand that the format is non-exhaustive. Please search the scriptures to “see if these be true.” This is a "watchman" and Bible prophecy teaching website.

●Israeli / Iran relationship heats up as Iran warns Israel to respect the nuclear agreement. Iran unveils new “smart missiles”. This while an ISIS terrorist is discovered plotting chemical attacks in Israel (Israel National News, 20th February)
●Syria fires missile into Israel which lands harmlessly in the Golan, but infuriates Israel. (19th February)
●Israel attacked with missiles fired from Sinai region. (There has been a large increase in missile attacks on Israel, since Netanyahu declared “A new day of friendship with the US.”)
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.
Edition 195. February 19th 2014
What on earth is the world saying:
What on earth is the world saying:
In edition 188 I shared with you what the earth, as opposed to the world is saying. You can read it here: “The earth in trouble.”
This message may be difficult to receive for many. I have tried to simplify it and present the basics, but I know it will be rejected by many. This message is for those who really want to move forward with our great King, Saviour, Warrior, and God -Yeshua Ha-Mashiach.
The world is making a distorted sound. But this distortion is all part of its plan, which is right on course! O, you didn’t know the world has a course and an intelligent powerful force behind it!
Ephesians 2:1-2 “And you He made alive. Who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience.”
The earth is generating many labour pains. It is just starting to groan, but what of the world? The world system, which is not the physical earth, is also generating many signs now.
The course of the world:
Don’t look to the youth of today to save the world later. They are being groomed by Satan himself to fulfil all of his purposes. Today’s youth have, and are subtly being forged into, a “world-community” which to them is sacra-saint. They are agents of change, but change to what and how? The new world’s change is all for the common good, says consensus opinion. But it includes the destruction of the old ways. New consensus-building involves behavioural modification and change.
The neutralisation of opposition is the world’s hidden agenda. No one’s reality is real. Values are not absolute anymore. An astounding unity is being forged all around the world involving these issues. Globalisation of new values, harmonisation, standardisation and uniformity are the order of the day. Global totalitarian restructuring of the world is secretly on the go nation by nation, city by city – all for the ‘common good’!
The areas of religion, population control, immigration, environment preservation, biometrics, medicine, science, technology and finance are all involved. A giant invisible Trojan horse is the problem. Inside the horse is the devil and his demons.
The world’s mass media are the biggest tools in the hands of the devil. And what the world deems right becomes the majority consensus, and the new norm. Incredibly, it’s as though there is a giant, invisible hand doing it all. And how right you are! It is the hand of Satan.
Right now, many of the issues of world-community are fragmented, but don’t underestimate the power of Satan to pull everything together very quickly.
Satan’s plan was to deceive mankind into thinking he could be “as God” by disobeying God in the garden and partaking of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Nothing has changed!
The great enmity between the Godly and the godly will be intensified and manifest in the conflict between Godly good and human good.
The working of chaos and destruction:
That may be a surprising headline, but let me explain. Terrorism in the western world produces much chaos. The deterioration of roads, bridges, infrastructure, all produce much unhappiness. Wild weather and its destructive force produce many dramas.
But the god of this world has a hidden agenda. What is the one universal thing that these destructions do? They cause people to turn to and look to government for their salvation. They make people dependant on big government. In fact they turn government into a god. Many hate government itself and therefore open themselves up to a new saviour – a new, better, one-world government.
Be careful of opening your mind to what seems reasonable and right in the world!
The World Peace Bells: There are now 20 around the world. These bells have inscriptions on them commemorating the major events of the last 1000 years. The theme of the World Peace Bells is centred on the UN’s Declaration of Human Rights. The bells were originally called the “Millennium bells”.
They are to be rung when important world-peace events take place.
Sorry world, your Millennium is coming – in hell.
Revelation 12:9 “The great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world...”
It is most important to understand the world and the power behind it. The Greek word “kosmokratos” is the word meaning “world power.” If you understand just this one word you are well on the way to victory.
1 John 5:19 “We know that we are of God and the whole world lies under the power of the wicked one.”
This world power is none other than the “god of this world” Satan himself. He is the world’s angel of light, knowledge and power.
The world can imitate the fruits of the Spirit of God and look good. Satan is a counterfeiter. BUT the world can’t produce one true Christian. It can only produce warmed up death.
We are not the light of the world, making it look good. That is an incorrect mistranslation. The correct version is: We are light in the world. We are not of it in any way. Our job is to shed God’s light in it and expose its deadly satanic darkness, its hollowness and empty evil.
The “right” of the world is mostly wrong. The tragedy is that many people mistake holiness for towing the line of the world’s value system. They think that to follow the world makes them good.
The word “holiness” means “separation” or to be “apart from.” It means to be separate from the spirit of the world, Satan, the demonic, and all such things. It means to be cleansed, set apart and different from all that has not gone through the cross of Messiah.
The great tragedy of our day is that many believe that holiness is joining together with all that is ungodly and unholy.
1 John 5:4 “For whoever is born of God overcomes the world...”
Too many voices:
There are many voices and opinions in this world; it’s all a confused mess, or is it? Well, of course there is so much division and confusion out there, but even that becomes a motivating force for change. It produces a unanimous cry for unity and one world value system with one voice.
1 Corinthians 14:8 “If a trumpet makes an uncertain sound, how can you prepare for battle?”
This is the work of Satan. He is the organiser. He uses division, confusion and chaos to cause people to turn to a ‘saviour’, and that is what the people do, but they look to what seems right to them, created by the wrong saviour. Their assessment of truth is the essence of error.
You may surprised to know that Satan wants unity. He wants the world to unify in worship and adoration of himself, but he is the master of disguise. In fact his disguise is very powerful. Don’t get onto his turf, he will fool you and kill you in the name of love.
The world’s voices proclaim the messages of its heroes:
The three architects of the world’s modern kingdom are these three above. Of course there are many more, but these are the chief architects of the road and pathway to eternal doom and destruction. The work of these three is cursed.
Darwin sowed the seeds of humanistic, evil, evolution and other things related to environmentalism. Freud sowed the evil seeds of humanistic modern thinking and Marx sowed the evil seeds of economic socialism in its various forms.
We all know the un-provable, unscientific theory of evolution, which has been shattered and destroyed by modern scientists, objective scientists, without subjective agendas. Evolution is the theory of the foolish world. It is the underlying theory of the ungodly, and the humanistic.
In spite of the fact that so many true experts have debunked it, the damned theory continues. This is because Satan has not died and is alive and well. It is one of the underpinning foundations of his system, built on the sands of the new world order.
If your father is a monkey and his father is an amoeba and the end of all things is nothingness, then of course anything goes. I think those that believe in evolution actually do have the brains of a monkey.
Evolution is presented in such a way as to mock those who believe in creationism. It is presented as undeniable truth. The spirit behind it wants to control the masses. It is a cursed theory.
Marx was a godless puppet of the devil. But his creation has spread far and wide in various forms, from hard line Marxist / Leninist communism to milder forms of socialism. The Western world has been free from this, but according to the Bible the whole world will shortly be brought under the economic model of hell.
The new Marxism will be loving Marxism, but with the same end result of producing control.
Isaiah 10:13-14 “By the strength of my hand (Satan) I have done it, and by my wisdom for I am prudent; Also I have removed the boundaries of the people, and have robbed their treasuries; so I have put down the inhabitants like a valiant man. My hand has found like a nest the riches of the people, and 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.”
This is economic control. It is the exact opposite of the free enterprise system which is to be found throughout the Bible.
This terrible verse above, speaks of the economic conditions in the tribulation period. Right now the world’s economic systems are varied, but in the tribulation – watch out! Of course I believe that the true believers won’t be here then, but the point is that the satanic humanistic system born in the heart of devil worshipper, Marx, is coming back with a vengeance, and a new loving face.
The biggest enemy facing modern man is ignorance; it compounds man’s problems, opening the door for Satan to come in like a flood. Ignorance itself generally has a spiritual root.
Let’s have a deeper look into this all-important issue full of spiritual gravity!
Every human is responsible for his own actions and sins. Sin compounds into demon activity if not confronted and checked early. Modern thinking believes that the inorganic problems of modern man are psychosomatic and not caused by sin.
Man is a spirit, has a soul and lives in a body. The world only recognises soul and body. The world doesn’t recognise the human spirit and therefore tries to deal with spirit related problems in the soulish realm. The world tries to fix spirit related problems with drugs and pills. There is no pill to fix sin. There is no pill for repentance. There is no pill to substitute the work of the cross.
Instead of operating in spiritual discernment the world operates in psychoanalysis.
If you go to a modern psychologist you are in danger of compounding your problem. Their aim is not to make you better, but to change your personality and value system.
Sigmund Freud, the father of modern psychology said that the biggest culprit and cause of mental illness is the Bible and the values of the church! He believed that the soul constantly wanted to express itself, but these Bible values suppressed the urge.
Freud’s big claim was that the values of the Bible caused guilt feelings in people. The answer according to him was to get rid of the source of the guilt feelings and give expression to your inner lusts and feelings. Guilt feelings originating from Bible based values are the cause of mental illness, he believed.
Freud believed that the patient is not responsible for his actions; childhood issues and the church are to blame. The problem is external and not the patient’s fault. They are not responsible.
To alter and change your value system, is the secret drive behind modern psychology. The psychologist takes sides with and encourages the sin nature to express itself, only they don’t call it the sin nature. Essentially they are taking sides with the devil. This is exactly why very few people are ever healed by psychologists and why psychologists have the highest suicide rate in any profession.
Please see edition 83 for more on this subject. “Counselling believers in perilous times.”
Yielding to the sin-nature always compounds problems, so their very healing method is actually the cause of greater problems.
According to Freud you should be more healthy when you give expression to your inner desires, because there is no such thing as sin.
Sin and resulting guilt, can’t be cured by a pill or fancy words. It can only be cured by the forgiveness of the shed blood and cross of Messiah!
Proverbs 28:13 “He who covers his sins will not prosper, but who confesses them and forsakes them will have mercy.”
►The end- result of all psychology is not to see you restored to normal, but to change your value system to a new normal; to the new world’s normal; the normal of the Messiah-less world.
The new world’s gods, the modern media, are the damned orchestra of hell, conducting a symphony of doom - a symphony to put Wagner to shame! They are speaking the exact same things as Freud, Skinner, Rodgers, Engles, Darwin, Marx and other puppets of the devil. Hollywood and the entertainment world are also speaking the same thing. They are all chanting the modern world’s doctrine of the devil which is:
There is no sin, there is no absolute value system. Do what you will and what feels good and right to you. Think what the world thinks. Become a partaker of modern consensus. They are all making popular the belief that the Bible is not only irrelevant, but the cause of all the world’s problems because it commands restraint and has a value system based on the knowledge of God. Satan’s biggest lie to an unsuspecting world is that he doesn’t exist.
This is what the world has created. It has taken the soft, loving? heart of flesh out of modern man, leaving a cold metal-like machine of a man, falling apart. Our new-world man is stone dead to all the things of God and alive to the whims of the world’s god, Satan.
Modern mankind works well with his boss, fulfilling his every desire. Modern man – you are dead even while you live, but you are about to be raised to eternal life in hell.
There is a big universal consistency between the works of Marx, Darwin and Freud and this is that they were all godless atheists. How can such evil produce anything good? It can’t.
James 3:11 “How can a fountain produce sweet water and bitter?”
The work of these men joins the work of the new world – all cursed.
The shocking, surprising, little known, glorious answer:
Today the answer to this terrible man-made world is just the same as it has been since the time of Messiah, but it is little known or understood in today’s world-friendly church of the devil’s puppets.
The answer is hatred! Are you surprised? You shouldn’t be! Before we go on, read the verse below:
John 12:25 “He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.”
There is a wonderful play on words here: “Love your life” uses the original word ‘psuche’, which means soul-life, it is the word from which psychology is derived. “He who hates his life”, uses the word ‘zoe’, which means spirit-life. Can you see how brilliant this is?
To find the depths of real blessed spiritual life, you need to hate your soul life’s connection to and enslavement by the world. How great that is, and how few know it!
Don’t try to change the world – die to it and come out of it!
James 4:4 “Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever then wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.”
Keep these things in perspective though. There is nothing wrong with making your own world excellent. Living decently and in order, neatly and tidily and doing your best at work etc.
But we do not love the world or the things of the world in an unrestrained manner.
The world cannot create anything sustainable. It cannot create peace – ever.
Isaiah 59:8 “The way of peace they have not known, and there is no justice in their ways; they have made themselves crooked paths; whoever takes that path will not know peace.”
God will not allow the world to produce a new world of peace even if it could, because it is without the true God and His values. Just like Babylon, the new world system is doomed. The world can never be good enough or holy enough.
1 Corinthians 3:19 “The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.”
Of course we must always bear in mind that our great God is the God of perfection and holiness. His is ultimately in absolute control of His creation and evil can only progress as far as His permissible will allows. His perfect creation of great glory will soon fill the universe.
What you must do:
●People say, what regret there will be in hell. I agree, but what regret there will be in heaven when many get there by the skin of their teeth, and discover how they missed out on God’s best for them. What regret there will be when people see that they missed God’s plan for their lives by believing and following the true God just a bit and the god of the world a lot!
●You must sharpen your spirit weapons in these days. You must look with spiritual eyes into the world’s kingdom.
●Strengthen your spiritual defences and stand strong, holy and right with God.
●Pray that our Lord grants you special discernment in these evil days – And He will!
●Get rid of the great sin of self-indulgence and excess.
●Prepare for a collapse of the world’s house of cards – its economy.
●Do not put your trust and faith in anything rooted in the foundations of the world. They are all cursed and will soon be shaken down.
What is the world saying? It is saying “follow me, dance with me, sing to my tune”. It is saying that it wants you. It is calling you to be a puppet and a sheep of the wolves. The world is calling you to fit in, add to its hordes and strengthen it. It is calling you to cast down God’s truth. It is calling you to hell eternal.
What is the world saying? It is saying, “do it my way, follow me and I will make you disciples of the devil.”
Amos 8:11 “Behold the days are coming says the Lord God, that I will send a famine on the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord.”
Proverbs 9:10 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”
Isaiah 26:12 “Lord, you will establish peace for us, for You have done all our works in us.”
This is the beautiful King Protea. I set the flower up at night, left the camera shutter open for two minutes and “painted” the flower with the light of a little halogen torch. Our soon coming King is supreme, above all kings and lords.
Romans 1:20 “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
