|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.|

- Ironically, the UN passed a resolution yesterday with 154 nations voting in favour of the Temple Mount falling under full Muslim control, rejecting Israel’s ownership.
- Israel attacks numerous Syrian targets near Damascus in response to Syria / Iran rocket attacks on Israel - all shot down by Israel's Iron Dome (20th Nov.) Israel says will now respond to every attack. "Its a new day."
- One in four Europeans now hold Anti-Semitic views (new poll 21st Novemeber)

The following verses apply well to the mass media:
Job 9:4 “Who has hardened his heart against Him and prospered?”
Isaiah 43:13 “...I work and who can reverse it?”
Philippians 1:9 “I pray that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and all discernment...”
Jeremiah 7:28 “You shall say to them, ‘This is a nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God, nor receive correction. Truth has perished and been cut off from their mouth.”
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah and to identify the rift, and the needed restoration. There is much in the church that needs to change before it can be fully reconciled with the Jew. Likewise, changes in Jewish thinking are also needed.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
The evil “I am”:
This is the ‘me now’ generation, ruled by ‘me, myself, I.’ It is the generation where the cry of the masses is “I am, and there is no other”. Here it is written in ages past:
Isaiah 47:10 “You have trusted in your wickedness. You have said, ‘no one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you; and you have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one else besides me.’”
One of the titles of our Messiah is “I am.” So, which ‘I am’ are you going to serve?
In the last few weeks I had two dramatic, most insightful encounters with two individuals, who had professed to be believers for years. Let’s call them Mr A. and Miss B.
Mr A has a foul mouth. I asked him to watch his language, and then spoke of something I had written here in The Prophetic Scroll (TPS). Well, Mr. A exploded and condemned me and TPS, with a tirade of swearing. To be honest, I was shocked to see the sudden extent of his antagonism.
Miss B then came along and exploded because I pointed out that the Bible condemned some of her witchcraft practises which she had tried to mix into her so-called Christianity. She instantly yelled like an electrified Jezebel, rejecting everything I said including the words of the Bible.
These two events are indicative and symptomatic of the world today, including some of the modern compromised churches.
Firstly, let’s analyse the events:
Both Mr A and Miss B were challenged to repent of sin. Both had a violent reaction to the conviction. It was not me or TPS or the Bible that they were offended at, but the personal application of conviction repentance and change, which was now on the table.
It was the conviction that they tried to get rid of by choosing the way of confrontation, and hostility. The way of spineless love would be to say nothing and tolerate it. The way of real godly love is the way of rebuke, and correction. (2 Timothy 3:16) If the individual will not receive it, so be it.
In the light you see the truth, but you also see sin. The light of God will reveal it and what to do about it. The darkness will hide it and attack the light! You can only repent from sin. If you remove what is called sin, re-name it, or water it down, no repentance is required and anything goes.
A hazy spiritual light will give you unclear half truths.
There are a number of bad things at work within many people. They want nothing standing in the way of self’s sin. They want no conviction. They are their own “I am.”
They want to bring people, ministries and the Bible down because it correctly identifies sin and opposes their participation in it. They try to exalt themselves above all authority.
They must tear down the things of God to give expression to their sin-nature.
The world and its god, fallen man and his god, are speeding down the road to soon coming doom.
●These end-times are bringing our Lord closer. ●The antichrist is also getting closer.
●The Man of holiness is drawing near. ●The man of sin is drawing near.
But for sin to flourish, holiness must be cast down. This is the state of the world today.
The problem with many today is that they are deceived, ignorant, don’t care, are proud, with no knowledge of God, and no restraint and discipline.
Most people today are a living offence to God. Of course, they can’t see that, because they are in the dark. It is the responsibility of the church to shed God’s light into this fallen world now.
As the end of the age approaches, the true church is becoming clearly visible in the light of God’s truth, and so is the false church! The eternal glorious kingdom of God, which will be the real survivor, is becoming more evident all the time, but it is exclusive.
By the way, the false church is not destroyed by God in the tribulation. It is destroyed, by its own god, the false Messiah!
The false church is becoming easier to spot. It is designed to make you comfortable in the world and in sin. It hides and obscures sin and its consequences. When the cross is obscured, sin is elevated.
The comfort of the world is not worth the effort of seeking. The world will comfort you in your sin and say, ‘it’s all okay now’. The word of God will not comfort you in your sin. It will condemn and convict you, and then empower you to change and become holy. That is what real true love is all about!
The well used term “There is now no condemnation,” is greatly misused in the church. In reality it is associated with repentance. It is conditional. Here it is:
Romans 8:1 “There is no condemnation to those who are in Messiah, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”
The woman caught in adultery was forgiven by our Lord. (John 8:10-11) But He said to her, ‘Now go and sin no more.’ This was the command of repentance and correction. She was not forgiven to continue in adultery.
Tradition holds that this was the “woman of sin” in Luke 7:37 and in fact was Mary Magdalene. If it was her, that means that her repentance led to her being the first one to see our Lord resurrected. It is a repentant attitude and life that cause spiritual sight.
May I say, that if you want a healthy spiritual life, break from the world’s ways and join and receive the word’s ways. Repent of sin now, but be advised, that a walk of repentance will do you more good than any exercises ever will!
Yes be free in your God-given liberty, but always keep an eye on the old sin nature and its desire to self-resurrect and trip you up.
Above all, in these dangerous days - exalt, uplift, revere and magnify the word of God in your life.
Be encouraged, stand strong – you can and must!
Edition 205. April 23rd 2014
The tragic church of the last days:
The tragic church of the last days:
The last days are characterised by a huge false or counterfeit church, which is part of the satanically led interfaith movement. It will contain the members of the World Council of Churches, the denominational churches, those of the Inter-Faith Movement, Chrislam and many others. It will be the majority with many members.
At the same time there will be a solid, Godly, pure, holy, true, glorious Church led by the Spirit of the Living God. It will have few members compared to the false- indeed, just a remnant.
Because the tragic end-time church avoids and won’t have anything to do with God’s plans for the last days it will become a significant participant of Satan’s plan. Blindly, it will follow the devil’s devices.
While preparing their flock for the wolves of the world, modern ministers shield and protect the flock from solid Biblical truth and the cross of Messiah and its revolutionary work.
Gone are the days when the religious churches tried, albeit half- heartedly to overcome the world; they now happily join the world using their own reasoning and intellect, thinking that this is the right way to go. Because the effervescing life of Messiah is not in their hearts, the doomed devil is their guide!
Many churches are spiritually blind, but the big mistake they make is being blind to the fact that Satan is not! If you are spiritually blind because of your own doings you will be led into error. When you are in error you are on Satan’s territory and God is not obliged to “lead you into all truth.” (John 16:13).
Obadiah 3 “The pride and arrogance of your heart has blinded and deceived you.”
The character of these times:
The curse of instant everything is today’s hallmark. It’s very easy to get instant knowledge with the advent of digital everything. It most certainly makes study a lot easier. But godly character doesn’t come that way. It can take years to get one single verse into your head, heart and character!
The big mistake the modern church is making is that it wants people to feel good. Its primary motivation is for its blind sheep to carry on carrying on, and to have a nice motivational uplifting Sunday sermon to give them assurance that they can carry on regardless.
Modern Christianity is so incredibly far below the New Covenant standard that the ways of the world in the church are no longer even disguised! True Biblical Christianity has been so infected that it is poisonous. The modern church has created a world and a god in its image.
Before you sit there and say “don’t be critical”, let me share with you a few of the many verses of heavy criticism of the end-time church from our Lord.
Matthew 24:12 “...The love of many will grow cold.” Revelation 3:16 Those of the “lukewarm church of Laodicea will be spat out.” Romans 11:22 The wild olive branches, grafted in, will be cut off as they come against God’s work of restoring the true olive branch (Israel.) 2 Timothy 4:3 “The time will come when people will reject sound doctrine and heap up for themselves teachers of their own.” Timothy 4:1 “In the latter times some will depart from the faith giving heed to seducing doctrines of demons.” 2 Thessalonians 2:11 “God will send them strong delusion because they did not receive the love of the truth.”
Now here are some key words from some of these verses relating to the end-time church: ●Love grows cold, ● lukewarm, ●spat out, ●depart from the faith, ●cut-off, ●deceived, ●doctrines of demons, ●perilous times, ●apostasy, falling away, ●strong delusions, and ●end-time scoffers.
Our Lord warns five times in the Olivet discourse of end-time deception!
Romans 16:17 “Now I urge you brethren, note those who cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.”
2 Timothy 4:3 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine...”
Be aware that the devil makes Christians too. They are full of love but not truth.
We are in a world where love of the world is the all encompassing big thing. The deception is – forget the details, for the greater good of the world. What the world thinks, believes and does is sacrosanct! This is the doctrine of CNN and the world’s media...and many churches!
Malachi 2:17 “You have wearied the Lord with your words...in that you say everyone who does evil is good in the sight of the Lord and He delights in them.”
The call of the Berean:
Acts 17:10-11“The brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea. When they arrived they went into the Synagogue of the Jews. These were more fair minded that those of Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.”
The duty of the church is to produce Bereans not those who blindly follow wolves. The duty of the Church is to lead people into all truth and not just aspects of it:
Acts 20:27-29 “For I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God...For I know that after my departure, savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock.”
The duty of the Church is to lead you to glory. It is to lead you to experiential Passover, then to Pentecost and to Tabernacle with God. The duty is to lead the people into the experience and presence of the living God now – right into that secret place where no one outside of the cross can go.
Psalm 27:5-6 “For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock. And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes I will sing praises to the Lord.”
The biggest danger to your Christianity is some of today’s churches. Many people give themselves to the wisdom of the minister, but in many cases he doesn’t even know the difference between God and the devil! How many preachers do you know who blindly support the occult practices of Christmas and Easter and reject participation in the Feasts?
True discipleship is cross- bearing and brokenness and the application of it. It is getting self off the throne of your own life. Only these will experience the depths of Messiah.
Brokenness means sorrow for sin and all the pride of life. It is only after the alabaster box of perfume was broken that the fragrance filled the air. Brokenness is not an end but the start of a wonderful journey full of glory.
The secret key to an incredible, purpose-full Christian life is taking all of God’s word at face value and applying it.
The prime aim of the church is not to meet the needs of the people and keep the institution going. The aim is not to tickle the ears of the members and give them peace, peace and more peace. The aim is not to give them prosperity so that they can finance the excessive, exorbitant, luxury lifestyles of Mrs Barbie Mascara and her friends.
2 Corinthians 5:15 “He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves, (cross bearing) but for Him who died for them and rose again.”
1 Corinthians 1:18 “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved, it is the power of God.”
The way to receive truth is to want it and then to be open to it, and then be open to change accordingly. God will not give you His truth without you meeting His requirements. This is exactly why many minsters of the gospel can do nothing but lead you astray. They themselves are driven by the ulterior motives of their own worldly financial success.
The blind and deaf will not give you the news. They will give you what they think you need /want to hear, so that they can continue to be elevated in their office.
This may sound odd, but do you know what one of the secret keys is to evaluating a pastor or minister? It is how passionate he is for the things of the Lord, and how filled with hatred he is!
You can’t love everything and you mustn’t. You must love and hate the opposite. Your love attachment to our Lord must burn away all the rubbish in your life. That won’t happen until you hate the evil in your life. If the Holy Spirit is at work, He will do just that. If not, you have other spirits at work in you.
Those who say they love everyone are liars. Everyone outside of the cross hates the cross of Messiah and people who are of the cross!
The church has moved in line with the virtues and values of the world so that it can stay relevant. Do you think that’s of God? Do you think that has helped the church? It has turned the church into “Laodicea”; ready to be spat out of the mouth of God. The secularisation of the church is never justified and always weakens it. Christian compromise is everywhere. It has a deadly price!
The ecumenical and interfaith movement does not strengthen the church it weakens it and seperates it from the Godly power, which only comes through the cross.
Mixture of truth and error is a deadly, dangerous disease. That’s like mixing milk and petrol. Your car will not go.
Deuteronomy 27:18 “Cursed be he who makes the blind to wander out of the way.”
Romans 1:18 “The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness.”
Romans 2:8 “To those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness – indignation and wrath.”
The ministers of many churches intend to keep the people stupid, simple and uniformed. This enslaves the people to them. The Catholics have perfected this for 1500 years! In fact they are preparing their people to open wide their arms for the antichrist!
To be part of the bride of Messiah you must divorce the god of this world and his agents.
Most people who don’t believe in hell don’t believe in sin! They can’t see what sin is because they are in spiritual darkness.
Let me tell you that hell and sin go together. If you remove hell from your doctrine, as most church ministers do today, you are automatically playing down sin and their world is then full of sin and evil. And if you don’t believe in sin and hell, why bother to believe in heaven?
Psalm 97:10 “You who love the Lord, hate evil! He preserves the souls of His saints; He delivers them from the hand of the wicked.”
The church’s end-time duty:
Think of a three act play. You go in and sit through the first act, which is the Old Covenant. Then you go and get popcorn at intermission. Now you come in and watch the second act which is the New Covenant. Then its popcorn time again. But what’s this I see? You now get in your car and go home before the third act which is where the greatest drama of all time is wrapped up. The third act is the culmination and completion of the Old Covenant and the New all in seven years.
The final act of the greatest drama of all time is just beginning. The curtains have opened, the actors are on the stage and the monumental events are starting to unfold. The play is on! And you Mr. Idiot have walked out and gone home before the curtains went up!
Now what’s this I hear? You sit at home and bark at those who sat through the whole play. You have your dumb, stupid ideas of what you know nothing about because you were too much of a slob to watch the third act.
Let me ask you, why did you walk out of the theatre before the third act? Whaaaat! You walked out because your minister told you not to get into that end- time stuff! – You really are an idiot! O, and by the way, your minister is a wolf- pack leader. He was a shepherd of sheep, and then he became a wolf-leader of sheep. Now he’s a wolf-pack leader of wolves! You gave yourself to wolves, just when the climax of the ages was being unfolded!
You got deceived just as magnificent, perfect peace, righteousness and holiness were breaking out on the world-stage for a thousand years!
Do you know how to spot a wolf-pack leader? He listens to other wolves and studies under them. He leads you to and leaves you with the other wolves! He makes sure you are unprepared for our Lord at His coming, and are well prepared for the false prophet. He ignores and teaches you to ignore all that end-time stuff!
The end-time Church’s attack on the Bible:
The Bible says more about the end- time scenario than any other subject including the life of Messiah on earth. About 27% of the Bible relates to and contains end -time prophecy.
Amazingly most of the professing church today cuts out end-time prophecy. This is far more common than you believe.
The most bizarre example was when the new head of TBN, the wife of the now deceased head, barred all end-time preaching and teaching by any participants on TBN. As I’ve said before this amounts to nothing but stabbing yourself in the eyes.
Sound doctrine is impossible with one third of the Bible removed. Sound living is even less likely! There is a spiritual ulterior motive in removing end-time teaching. They want their people to continue supporting their exorbitant lifestyles.
When you get saved you come into a package deal. The Bible is not only part of the deal, but it is in fact one with Messiah. If you remove parts of the Bible you have massacred the Lord Himself. How can you say you love someone, but not all of His word – you raving hypocrite! You must say you only love the aspects of the Lord that suit you!
It is our job to search for, to receive with joy, and to apply all of God’s word. There are always consequences for not doing so.
The image below is a composite of direction finding and searching instruments:
Beware the King James only cult:
There is a large group of Christians out there who have fallen prey to the cult of King James Onlyism! They teach and believe that the King James Version of the Bible is the only inspired version. But they don’t stop there; they then go on to claim that all other translations are the work of Satan. They don’t stop there either. They go on to claim that anyone who does not use the King James Version is not saved and goes to hell.
This cult is born in extreme pride and arrogance. They effectively throw God off His throne and put themselves there deciding who goes to hell based on what translation they use. I know this sounds comical, but you would be surprised at how many are totally deceived by this unbelievable ignorance and arrogance.
The single greatest characteristic of this cult is that they are blind. They have been blinded by God. They can’t see the depths of their error. I don’t want to go into the origins here because it makes me so angry and I want to have a good day.
The danger is that they influence other people and try to bring them into their evil web of judgementalism and control. They are evil control freaks – all of them.
When you encounter King James onlyism, switch off, run away, shut them up, don’t have anything to do with them.
How to pick a church:
●It must have all three acts of the play (above)! It must preach and teach the centrality of the cross, the fear of the Lord, hell, and repentance. ●It must preach the full doctrine of Christ as represented in Hebrews 6:1-2. ●God’s church must take a stand and be against replacement theology. ●It must have all five of the ministry gifts in operation especially the prophet / watchman in this day. ●The Church must set you on fire for our Lord and the knowledge of God. ●It must ground you in Biblical wisdom for life today. ●It must come actively against the major work of the devil today which is interfaith. ●The minister must know he is not employed by the people, but by God. ●He must not be relevant to the world but to God’s word. ●God’s Church must create in you a broken, humble and soft heart before our Lord and His word. ●There must be a clear distinct cut and separation from false doctrine. ●Do you know that the Bible has many “hard sayings” within it? God’s Church will not remove them.
Today there are a fast growing number of people who legitimately can’t fit in with their local church. It is the fact that many churches have become nothing more than institutions, rather than living organisms. In essence there is no such thing as the un-churched. We are all members of the Church of the living God. Are you moving forward with our Lord? That is the prime issue.
A snippet of testimony:
All my life I’ve been a searcher for beauty and perfection. I’ve looked for it in many places and through many experiences. My understanding of what that even is has gone through a radical metamorphosis. Only in the last 25 years or so, have I seen glimpses of the magnificence of God’s perfection.
Of course there is a danger of going overboard, but then don’t fall into the ditch on the other side! You may have heard the well-known cliché, “God is not looking for perfect people, just forgiven people.” It’s not so much, “are you perfect”, but do you want to be. I most certainly do want to be perfect. That set’s you on the right road.
That love as with any love, must be tempered, disciplined and refined by the Spirit of the living God. Love matures as we move forward in holiness. Sin begins to drop off and becomes repulsive. Joy fills our lives. Experience of the glory of God is exclusive and costly. It takes time to develop and requires radical, deep change, but it is so, so worth it!
Psalm 119:63 “I am a companion of all those who fear You and of those who keep Your precepts.”
Psalm 15:1-2 “Lord who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill? He who walks uprightly, and works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart.”
Psalm 25:14 “The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him and He will show them His covenant.”
What you must do:
●There are two distinct churches in the end days. One is a tragic counterfeit and the other is a glorious masterpiece! Decide for yourself which one you want to be part of!
●Many will repent in these days, but scripture warns that the majority won’t. Do you want to go with the flow of the majority? Do you want to sail with the wind or set your sail against the wind of the world?
●Do you want to fit in with the majority, or do you want to be part of Gods glorious “few”?
●Do you feel connected to and with the world – you need to be disconnected.
●Do not have a servant attitude to Satan and his world and word.
The tragic church of the last days is blind to the last days. They are unprepared for Messiah and well prepared for the counterfeit Messiah. They are full of a mixture of truth and error. They are on the broad way full of human rights and reasoning at the expense of God’s rights. They are of the spirit of darkness and the god of this world.
The modern church has become relevant to the world by becoming relative in doctrine. Absolutes have gone out of the window and in their place has come the absolute authority of the human based on human experience, grown and nurtured in the world system.
The modern church has the power of persuasion, but lacks the authority of God! Hell from beneath is excited to meet you at your coming! (Isaiah 14:9)
The great end-time tragic church, empowered by the god of this world, is ready for its final rebellion against God.
1 Peter 4:7 “The end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayer.”
2 Samuel 22:28-29 “You will save the humble people; but Your eyes are on the haughty, that You may bring them down. For You are my lamp O Lord; The Lord shall enlighten my darkness.”
Psalm 97:11 “Light is sown for the righteous and gladness for the upright in heart.”
Psalm 89:15 “Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! They walk O Lord in the light of Your countenance.”
I took this picture sitting at a waterhole in the Etosha desert as thousands of zebras streamed in over the horizon. The symbolism is: Are you a blind follower, or a follower of our Lord and His herds?
Isaiah 43:20 “The beasts of the field honour Me, the jackals and the ostriches, because I give waters in the wilderness and rivers in the desert, to give drink to My people, My chosen.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
