►Regular readers of The Prophetic Scroll are hereby informed that this Covid19 virus will not come near you. I and my prayer team are praying this as a specific prayer of protection over you.
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
This verse, below was given to me by our Lord in December last year to give to you as the crowning verse for 2020. This was just before the corona-virus became a world pandemic:
The heading is, “Babylon humiliated.” End-time Babylon is the modern world system:
Isaiah 47:10-11 “You have trusted in your wickedness. You have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you; You have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one besides me.’ Therefore evil shall come upon you and you shall not know from where it arises, and trouble shall fall upon you. You will not be able to put it off, and desolation shall come upon you suddenly.”
Proverbs 24:21 (Amp) “My son, reverently fear the Lord and king, and do not associate with those given to changing allegiances and revolution.”
Proverbs 28:28 (Amp) “When the wicked arise, men hide themselves; but when they perish, the constantly righteous increase and become many.”
Proverbs 28:2 (Amp) “When a land transgresses, it has many rulers; but when the ruler is a man of discernment, understanding and knowledge, its stability will last long.”
Psalm 9:17 (Amp) “The wicked shall be turned back into premature death, into Sheol (hell), even all the nations that forget God.”
Psalm 120:7 “I am for peace, but when I speak, they are for war.”
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose of this report is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah.
5th June 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Why and when God judges:
But first: What’s happening now is the attempted overthrow of God, His authority structures and the creation of the new world order system of false gods, idols, icons and release of hosts of demons.
The world is redefining God and His word to their standards and values, but it is the standards and values of Satan, their unseen god.
Here is a profound verse which I am applying to the current riots and upheavals:
Isaiah 59:6-8 (Separated from God) “...Their works are works of iniquity, and violence is in their hands. Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood. Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. 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 way shall not know peace.”
I have spoken a lot lately about where we are on the prophetic clock and what is happening now and why. I’ve used the analogy of the forerunners of the four runners of the apocalypse. We are not in the tribulation period yet, but in the time of birth-pangs and forerunners.
The big judgements upon the world of the tribulation period are seen in the events brought onto the stage by the four riders of the apocalypse.
But now I would like to look into the reasons for the big judgements of the tribulation, which are obviously the same reasons for the troubles being brought on now in the form of forerunners.
Big historic judgements of God:
The big judgements from God in the Old Covenant were for these reasons:
●Molech the evil god of child sacrifice: This god was worshipped by the offering of infants, including those from abortions as a sacrifice in fires under his outstretched bronze hands. This occurred in the Valley of the son of Hinnom, (Gehenna). The place became known as cursed for these murders. Today it is still believed to be cursed. (Jeremiah 32:34-35, 2 Kings 23:10) Gehenna is identified with Armageddon.
●Noah: The world then was destroyed by flood for rampant sin, including homosexuality, complacency in the face of predicted judgement, and mocking of judgement to come.
●Sodom & Gomorra: These cities were destroyed by fire for persistent, aggressive homosexuality and refusal to repent.
●Babylon & Babel: Babylon and the tower of Babel were destroyed by God for rampant sin, humanistic unity, false religion, and trying to reach God and be like Him, – man’s way. “Babylon was never to rise again.” (Jeremiah 51:64, Isaiah 13:20) But end-time Babylon is here again, as revealed in many verses. It is NOT the original city. It is now the end-time world system. End-time Babylon has its religion Catholicism and similar orthodox beliefs. The true church is commanded to “flee from Babylon.” (Jeremiah 51: 6-9, and Revelation 17&18)
●Jericho: Was destroyed for rampant sin, and for obstructing the children of Israel on their journey to the Promised Land.
Here are the reasons collectively: ●Rampant unrepentant sin and wickedness. ● Homosexuality which today includes the redefining of God’s institution of marriage and family. ●Abortion. ●Complacency in the face of coming judgement. ●Mocking God’s ways and coming judgement. ●Humanism which includes the philosophy of “I am,” and there is no other. ●False religion of all sorts. ●Coming against Israel.
Here’s the big question: Do you see these sins in the world today? Do you see the world repenting of these things?
Let’s be clear on one thing. The world will not repent, because that’s what the Bible shows. But many individuals in the world will and are repenting even now.
Do you see how difficult it is for the world to repent? These sins have become so normalised and entrenched in modern society that they have become a human right! And even some deceived churches are supporting these judgment-bringing sins!
The gradual normalisation of sin has been done mainly by the mass-media.
So, the four riders of the apocalypse are ready to ride, for the above reasons. When they do, they will race swiftly onto the stage – suddenly!
Because of unrepentant, continuing and worsening sin, God has blinded the minds of the unbeliever and Satan has blinded their minds to the salvation of God.
Matthew 11:25 “I thank You Father Lord of heaven and earth because you have hidden these things from the wise (in self) and prudent, and have revealed them to babes.”
The sin of obstructing Israel:
►But first: Interestingly the organisation “Black Lives Matter (BLM) contains a foundational document rejecting the right of the Jews to their homeland and other anti-Semitic statements.
●Why did God destroy nations and kingdoms that came against the children of Israel, and those that attacked Jerusalem in the Old Covenant?
●Why did God not destroy the nations that divided Israel and Jerusalem in the days since the cross? (For example Jordan, Turks, Britain).
●Why did God not destroy Germany after the Holocaust?
●Why has God not destroyed the many churches including the Catholic church that formed, promoted and practise replacement theology, which is simply the theology of dividing Israel and Jerusalem?
It is because we are in the church age of grace and the longsuffering of God. (2Peter 3:9, Acts 17:30) This is the era of God overlooking these things. (Read those two verses).
But woe to them all when the age of grace ends and the world returns to the Old Covenant ways of doing things. God’s severe, immediate, demonstrative judgement is the main characteristic of the tribulation.
The main verse used by many against dividing Jerusalem is Joel 3:2. But this occurs in the tribulation period if you read the surrounding context. That is not in the church age, but the next dispensation, the seven year tribulation or closing of the Old Covenant.
If this is the case, which I challenge anyone to dispute, then, the current virus troubles and riots are not because the US divided Israel or Jerusalem, which it did not do anyway.
If you recall, I applied the key of David, which no one can remove, to President Trump for his biblical moves on Jerusalem. (Revelation 3:7, Isaiah 22:22) He still holds that key! The world is trying its damndest to get the key out of his hands!
I have mentioned this many times but it bears repeating. The next big thing on the prophetic agenda is war. It will be war against Israel and in the Middle East, as the war-rider rides out of the starting gates.
►►►Jeremiah 4:19 “O my soul, my soul! I am pained in my very heart. My heart makes a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because you, O my soul, have heard the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war.”
Once the four riders race out of the starting gates, the world will cry for peace, but this is what they will get:
Revelation 6:4 “Another horse, fiery red went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth and that people should kill one another, and there was given to him a great sword.”
Do you see why it’s not a good idea to go to the races?
It is of utmost importance to know what is going on behind the scenes in all these things.
My friends, true deep, glorious peace and rest is only for the true believer, going deep with the things of God!
Edition 202. April 9th 2014
What does it mean to be ready?
What does it mean to be ready?
Revelation 19:7-8 “Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready. To her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.”
I’ve dealt with this subject many times, but in this edition I want to focus specifically on the occult and its devastating effects on believers.
Time is short my friends. This edition is to help you move closer and faster into the will and purpose of our Great King and Lord. I hope it sets your heart on fire for our God with greater passion.
Many people battle to move forward with our Lord, because their source is the Bible. The Bible says of itself “The letter kills, the Spirit gives life.” Trying to grow in maturity with “inert?” food is a problem, yet it’s the story of all those outside of the fullness of the Spirit.
You can choose to be led by your own intellect and knowledge or by the Spirit. One way produces a mixture of worldliness and Godliness, the other is the way to real success with and in God.
God has made the” wisdom of the world foolishness with Him”. Today the church is content with foolishness and a life full of worldliness, which the Bible describes as “Cow Dung”, compared to the “excellence of the knowledge of Him.”
So dead letter, the foolishness which is the world’s wisdom (a heap of cow dung) is the source of life for many Christians. It’s all polluted!
What is the measure of success? What is true spirituality and pseudo-spirituality?
It was Derek Prince who defined the fear of the Lord. He said, “It means to fear Him”! Because there is no fear of God in the church it has become a mess. The fear of God causes humility, restraint, respect and leads to obedience.
If you have no fear of God you will develop a fear of the devil. You will reverence, respect and honour his ways because it’s too awkward to stand out from Satan’s new age values.
I really feel sorry for the youth of today. The tragedy of children brought up with the virtues, values and principles of the world is that they are so, so far from God’s ways. Most of the church today is in a crisis but is unaware of it because they compare themselves among themselves and with the world.
Godly authority is gone for them and human-based power is all that remains. There is a very big difference. Many churches today operate in the power and energy of the flesh rather than the Spirit. They haven’t even noticed that the Spirit has moved out!
No dying for me:
Our Lord does not expect you to be good and holy in your own effort. He expects you to die! The great majority of Christians today will never be free, holy and right with God, because they don’t see the need to die. They think, “Jesus died for me, no dying for me”. They think that they are too special – because that’s what the faith preacher told them.
The reason why many believers will never be free is because they can’t see that criminals get executed. They think they are worthy and therefore reluctant to go the way of the cross.
The body of Messiah is not those who proclaim to be believers. The body is where the cross has done and is doing its deadly work and the authority of the living God is present.
Neither the world nor the counterfeit church will ever produce one true Christian.
Matthew 5:30 “If your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you. It is more profitable for you that one of your members perishes, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.”
This is not talking about literally cutting your hand off; it is talking about being severe on yourself in dealing with sin.
If you are graduating from university on a particular day, you know it’s coming, and you get yourself ready before leaving for the ceremony. You walk in, ready, but you don’t know the exact time the ceremony will start. But you got ready ahead of time.
In numerous passages the Bible commands us to “watch”, “pray” and “be ready” in relation to the coming of our Lord.
There is so much being fulfilled on the prophetic stage right now. We may have a few months left or a few years at the utmost. It is time to get ready!
The infiltration of the world:
Psalm 119:53 “Horror has taken hold of me because of the wicked, who forsake your law (word).”
Are you horrified at the wickedness of the world?
The world system has infiltrated the church at a staggering rate in recent years and it’s getting far worse quickly. Few people have any idea! They are drifting blindly with the flow of the world.
We need to identify the wiles of the god of this world – Satan.
What follows is an analysis which I hope will shock you.
Friedrich Nietzsche 1875: Founded existentialism and the philosophy that there are no absolutes in life and no right or wrong. To further his beliefs he came up with the “God is dead” theory and that people are firstly world-citizens belonging to the world and not individual nations. He campaigned against morality and had a vicious hatred of Christianity. Interestingly, he died as a result of a severe mental break down caused by syphilis. “The madness letters” were his last deranged writings. Philosophers, psychologists and other godless types hold him in high regard. He was truly an individual in the spirit of antichrist as were Freud, Darwin and Marx.
His deranged satanic philosophy is deeply ingrained in New World Order thinking and in fact very deeply rooted in most people today. Oh, you think that’s an exaggeration do you? Today even conservative people believe homosexuality is okay. Most believe living together is okay. Most believe most things that God is against are okay.
We will be judged on God’s basis - not the world, or the lukewarm church, or the opinions of modern man! Today what’s right and wrong is up to the individual and human rights take precedence over God’s rights! Obama and Cameron have even legislated it so!
There is a subtle move today to portray all that stems from the occult as the door to freedom and liberation. I used to think that it is the gullible who are always susceptible to these occult influences. Now I think that AND it is the highly educated, sophisticated and civilised who are as easily and equally possessed.
The neo-Gnostic agenda of the new age is not new at all. It began in the Garden of Eden.
The world began in a perfect earth and rebellion occurred. Do you know that the same thing occurs at end of Millennium? After a thousand years of perfect environment there will still be a whole bunch of people who will rebel and choose Satan’s word.
Today people believe that if society can be perfected, man can be perfect and a perfect world of peace will arise.
People at end of the Millennium will come against our Lord because in the Millennium He will rule with a rod of iron. People don’t like that; they believe that they have the brains to run their own lives and create a perfect world.
Please understand this well. Satan invented and perpetrated humanism in the Garden; man fell for it. At the end of the Millennium we see the same thing again. And right now we have almost the whole world blinded and charging down the same road.
Beware, the further you go from the standard which is God’s, the further you have to go in repentance to return. Some will never make it because their journey away from God’s truth has been so far. Remember that when you or the world as a whole remove God’s virtues and values you are not left in a vacuum. All manner of demonic spirits led by the chief evil spirit and counterfeiter, the angel of light, Satan comes right in and moves a lot more than the furniture around in your life.
My friends, neither you nor I have the brains to run our own lives ourselves. We were designed that way!
2 Timothy 3:1-2 “Know this, that in the last days, perilous times shall come. For men will be lovers of their own selves”. True Godly character is seen in one who denies the power of self in his life.
1 Corinthians 1:18 “The message of the cross is foolishness to them who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”
The New World Order is here:
World government is still coming, but its inner workings are here already in the hearts and minds of the whole world.
To achieve world government it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family traditions, national patriotism, andreligious dogmas.
Modern entertainment and movies in particular are the most powerful weapons in Satan’s hands. They are powerful means of mass control. Very few people realise that they bow down to the great satanic god of Hollywood when they participate. (By the way, the last movie I went to was in 1980.)
►I strongly advise that you watch the following incredible clip, especially if you have younger children. It’s an hour and a half long. Pause it and come back if you can’t watch it in one session. I do not necessarily sanction the other clips in the sidebars. Click the title: “The New World Order, evil, occult and the fashion industry.”
All these occult things have become open and in your face. They have become not only acceptable but desirable, especially for the youth.
Signs and symbols are surface messages of deepand hidden spirits.
Many believe God exists but not Satan! Sorry you can’t have it that way. Most people believe they are fine with God, when in reality they are fine with Satan.
Perhaps the greatest fraud of Satan is the deception that neither he nor his demons exist.
You can cut God out of your life or cut the devil out of your life, the choice is yours and the consequences eternal. If you cut neither out of your life you will only have one, because God doesn’t dwell with Satan.
Human good is full of sin. Human knowledge is nothing but Gnosticism. If you don’t know it by now – human nature is fallen! You can’t lift it up. You can’t dress it respectably. You can’t make it look and sound good. It must die. The only solution to sinful human good is death – the death of the cross.
“My people perish for a lack of knowledge” does not mean that you must get knowledge. It means that you must get the knowledgeof God.
Does this god rule your life?
The pagan gods of the media have programmed the thought life of most. People unwittingly subscribe to all the writings and presentations of the world. By “writings” of the world, I include visual and audio as well.
The written and audio visual world has a sort-of authority to it. People believe what’s in a book or on the news. People give themselves to this authority in the entertainment world all the time. But the authority is always of the world and its god, Satan, unless it a Godly inspired work.
►Thoth was the Egyptian god of knowledge, good, evil and magic. He was also the god of writing and became known as the “scribe of the gods of the underworld.” Thoth was also the god of the arts. He was also a lunar deity identified with the peopleof the night. He was also a powerful magician causing people to fall under his dominant spell. In Egyptian mythology Thoth was responsible for maintaining the universe.
There is so much more about this evil god. But what we must know is that Thoth is alive and well in the minds and hearts of almost everyone in the media world. Through the media this demon principality is now in most people!
He attempts to maintain the universe under his authority through the entire media world. Mankind under the spell of this demon god, or any other, will ultimately fail miserably in “maintaining the universe.”
Most people are completely blind to the spirit world. They would look at the image above and think, “That’s some ancient irrelevant depiction”. It is more alive than you know! The self same demon spirits are at work today. Your favourite celebrity, author, movie director, or playwright, are all filled with the demons of Thoth!
Hosea 7:8 “Ephraim has mixed himself among the people; Ephraim is a cake unturned (half-baked).”
1 Corinthians 15:33 “Be not deceived; evil communications corrupt good morals”.
Proverbs 13:20 “He that walks with wise men shall be wise, but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.”
As we prepare for the coming of our Saviour and God, we need to go a lot deeper into all these things, so that we can walk free and clean. When you understand the spiritual roots of all these things you will be much more able to deal with them.
“The axe is laid at the root of the tree,” says the Bible. If you don’t see, know and understand how and why these things are working, you will just be cutting off bad fruit, which will come right back again.
So what’s the big deal about being ready for our Lord?
2 Corinthians 10:12 “For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they measuring themselves by themselves and comparing themselves among themselves are not wise.”
We must have measures in our lives. We must carefully measure our lives and progress against God’s word, led by His Spirit.
The very first thing we must know is that getting ready involves preparing our lives for the Lord’s coming from the day we are saved. Of course as we “see the day approaching” there are many urgent things to do. We must fine-tune our lives fast!
2 Peter 1:4 “Whereby are given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that by these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”
2 Corinthians 10:5 “Cast down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of our Messiah.”
The way of the counterfeiter:
Luke 21:34-36 “Take heed to yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the cares of this life, and that Day come upon you unexpectedly. For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the earth. Watch therefore and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass and to stand before the Son of Man.”
Compromise (sitting on the fence) will take the pressure off. Satan will not bother you. You must allow our Lord to fully conquer you. Today people tolerate everything and think that they’re not accountable for anything.
The counterfeit way to get ready for our Lord is to try to be good. Or it is to go the way of the Judaisers who say, “now that you’re saved keep the law to become holy.” The counterfeit way is to mix worldliness into your life. Don’t be radical and don’t stand out from the crowd.
The counterfeit way is to follow the crowd and the opinions of man and the local spineless church down the road.
The way of the counterfeit is, “Yes I can.” It is the way of positive motivational confession and belief. It is the way of the prosperity preacher with luxury homes, cars and jets. It is the way that has no cross in it.
Resting in your faith
The way of God’s truth is an impossible way. You can’t do it, no one can. It’s not “yes you can”, it’s “no you can’t.” So give up and die. As you do this God says, “Thank you, now I can empower you with My clean, holy and glorious resurrection life”.
This is the way to rest. It is not the way of works; it is the way of the cross. The day you realise that you can’t live the Christian life is the day of victory. It is the day of deep satisfaction. It is the day your sins lose their power and begin to drop off one by one.
It is the day of rest in God. As you take your hands off your life it is the day of new excitement. Is your Christian life full of excitement?
Only in Messiah, in the work of the cross, do we experience the highest life of freedom, liberty and deep rest in God.
1 Corinthians 15:38-42 “God gives it a body as He pleases...There are also celestial bodies and terrestrial bodies, but the glory of the celestial is one and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars. For one star differs from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown in corruption and it is raised in incorruption.”
Revelation 21:3 “I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, Behold the tabernacle of God is with men and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people and God Himself will be with them and be their God.”
● Watch that video clip above!
Getting ready and being ready at this particular point in time involves all these things and much more, but we must know the depths of the occult and it’s infiltration into modern society, the church and the majority of Christians.
We must see things through God’s word and through the eyes of His Spirit in our hearts.
2 Corinthians 2:15“We are to God the fragrance of Messiah among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.”
1 Peter 2:11 “Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul.”
Isaiah 57:15 “I dwell in the high and holy place with him who has a contrite and humble spirit...”
I took this picture (and the one above) on one of my numerous excursions deep into the Namib Desert. This is “dead tree pan”. It speaks of the fact that we are dead in and to this world!
Isaiah 40:3 “A voice of one crying in the wilderness, “Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
