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.
►We have now reached 38 million regular visitors.
►Lord willing, the next edition will be entitled “Signs of maturity."
Ezekiel 33:6 “If the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself, and he who takes warning will save himself.”

●We continue in the prophetic impasse, with no major prophetic developments. There have been numerous threats of military action from Israel, Syria and Iran and a few minor skirmishes here and there. They are significant in setting the tone, but we sit and wait. This is called learning patience!
●For this publication, I’m not really interested in all the little news items around the world. It’s only the events and issues that have a direct relationship to Bible prophecy. These things can change fast!
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 206. May 7th 2014
The New Holocaust. A-bomb edition.
The New Holocaust: A-Bomb edition!
For all those who have bought my book “The Coming Holocaust” – this is not a summary of it. My original manuscript was 300 pages, while my book is 150 pages. This edition contains much of the unpublished material and more.
I’m also putting on the “prophet’s” hat.
The word Holocaust comes from the root word “holokauston” which means “great sacrifice by fire.”
The new Holocaust will be centred in Israel, but it will be worldwide.
Many of the soon-coming events will fall in the tribulation period, but many will also fall in the run-up period. We will be encountering great natural upheavals and great supernatural events. We will be encountering massive socio-political events, economic events and spiritual events. We will be encountering worldwide mental anguish, paranoia and fear on an unprecedented scale.
Some of these things are difficult to deal with, but this is where we are in prophecy and we must be realistic and prepared. As you will see, these terrible times have a very bright side also. It all leads to the repentance of Israel and the ‘parousia’ of Messiah. Multitudes of Jews around the world will repent and get saved as they search urgently and desperately for their Messiah.
This grand repentance and coming to salvation of Jews as well as masses of Gentiles, heralds the Second Coming. The outpouring of the Spirit of God will sweep great numbers from all tribes and tongues into the Kingdom.
Great conflict and great grace will be operating side by side, eternal enemies, but bedfellows for a short time.
Will these things rock your faith or strengthen your faith? For many, these things will be the great divide!
The overall picture:
Let’s summarise recent world events and see what we have.
We have now seen the US- led Israeli / Palestinian peace talks fall apart. They may still be resurrected, but so far, they appear to be dead.
Make no mistake, the tribulation period can’t begin until we have a peace pact or deal on the table. That does not mean that there will be peace, just a peace agreement.
Conflict will be the main factor that goes with the collapse of these peace efforts. That in itself may lead to resumed peace talks.
We see many Arab and Islamic nations in civil war right now. These will soon consolidate at least against their common enemy, Israel.
Many nations, organisations, companies and individuals are siding with the Palestinians. What the world says has become sacrosanct, but it has the power of the devil behind it. They will all become satanically charged and empowered as they come against God’s word.
At exactly the same time we have seen a new unity agreement between two major Palestinian factions that have been opposed to each other. These uniting factors, present a much larger threat to their common enemy, Israel.
At the same time Syria is deteriorating fast and Iran is moving ahead with its nuclear weapons aspirations.
A new supernatural anti-Semitism hatred is here. It is unjustified in the extreme, but because its origin and power is of the living devil it is here! The tragedy is that many can’t see this enemy. They are blind and open to deception and defeat.
Today anti-Semitism is growing worldwide. The world’s media is leading it. “The world is right”, says CNN relating to the dividing of the land of Israel and the Palestinian issue. “It is the way of the world,” they say, and they believe that they are right because it’s the majority consensus of the world.
If you do not understand these things you are in danger of being used by spirits you can’t see and don’t believe exist. You are on thin ice. This is the era of the final onslaught of demons, principalities and powers of great influence and force.
The incredible sin of being an innocent bystander is no longer innocent, valid or acceptable!
Signs of the time:
We have just had the first tetrad of blood moon eclipses. These have traditionally been seen as harbingers of troubles for Israel and the world. Within days we saw the breakdown of the peace talks, the Russian / Ukraine situation expand and this new unity within the Palestinians. What will follow?
The Russia / Ukraine situation is fast moving. It is very likely to develop into the big prophesied war of Gog and Magog in Ezekiel 38 & 39. But we won’t jump the gun; we will wait and see. (Daniel 12:1)
We are seeing so many things dovetailing right now making the prophetic jigsaw clearer.
In all of these things we don’t know the exact timing of many prophetic events, but we most certainly can see the approximate time, as the events begin to unfold. The issue is to be forewarned and prepared.
I now want to share with you some profound truths.
Do you know why there is war in the world? The great majority of wars have been fought over territory. It is one group wanting the territory of another. This has been and is now the consistent theme behind almost all wars. Now look at these verses of immense importance:
Acts 17:26-27 “He has made from one blood (Adam) every nation (Lit= “ethnos”, ethnic) of men to dwell on the face of the earth, and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, so that they should seek the Lord in the hope that they might find Him, though He is not far from each of us.”
God’s way is to have borders around nations based on ethnicity. This is obviously not racist but simply His way for the world. The world says we need one-world with no borders. Oh yes – that has really worked well! Nimrod, Pharaoh, Herod, the Roman emperors, Hitler, Churchill, Kennedy, and all the worlds Mickey Mouse leaders since, have been unable to make internationalism work. They have all been playing ring-a-ring of roses – all fall down!
Note that God has set boundaries around different peoples. This flies in the face of one-world universalism. When nations stick to their God- ordained territory there is peace. Note the answer to all wars in Acts 17. It is the way of real universalism! As you “seek the Lord in the hope of finding Him” what happens? You come into His kingdom – the only place of true universalism and ethnic internationalism with no war!
So, the unsaved masses are to have nations with borders defined on ethnicity. The saved are already in another world!
Now let’s go one step further:
Joel 3:1-2 “In those days and at that time, when I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat (Lit-God will judge). I will enter into judgement with them there, on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land.”
Do you see exactly the same principle at work for the land of Israel? You see, God has chosen the land of Israel for the Jewish people and as the world tries to divide it, it brings war.(Its worth bearing in mind that Churchill also gave away large chunks of the land, but the issue now is that the Palestinians want all of Israel!)
The two verses above (Acts 17 and Joel 3) are absolutely revolutionary and staggering in their importance and relevance to today. Every single human being on this planet is involved!
I’m always very careful with things like this, but I thought I would share it anyway. Years ago I covered many wars as a journalist and photographer. I got a phone call the other day from the previous editor of one the top news agencies. I worked with him covering the wars of southern Africa. He has just published a coffee-table book containing hundreds of my images (including the front cover.) I have just received my copy of the book and it reminded me of many of the experiences. The pictures of shattering death, destruction and devastation, brought back many memories. The word of the Lord came to my spirit saying, “Nothing has changed for you – buddy.” Okay, today I’m not running around like a mad idiot anymore, chasing the best picture and story. But now I sit behind my desk in my beautiful home office, with two beautiful Red Setters at my feet, and find myself looking ahead through the prophecies of the Bible to monumental wars and conflicts to come. But now there is so much more purpose and meaning in it all, and I have been given the privilege of sharing these things with you, and give you my word, I will do so with great enthusiasm and deep compassion and deep sorrow!
It is written:
The image above symbolises the fact that God has written all these things in His book. He has trumpeted warnings to the world, and the world ignored Him moving on from simple warfare to nuclear.
The most dramatic nuclear warfare imaginable will soon break forth.
The following discourse on nuclear warfare is perhaps the worst thing you can imagine. It is written in the scriptures. It is part of Bible prophecy, soon to be fulfilled. Thankfully a great deal of it will occur in the tribulation period, but we may see the beginning of it all very soon.
The Nazi Holocaust is not in the Bible directly, but this new coming Holocaust is all over the scriptures!
The Prophet Joel’s amazing view of the Atom-Bomb:
Joel 2:30 “I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke.
►The original Hebrew word used in the verse above for “pillars” is: Strong’s H8558, which means “spreading like a palm tree top.” The entire context of this passage in Joel is end-time warfare.
Have you ever seen a closer description for the atomic-bomb? Of course the prophet Joel had no idea of what an atom bomb mushroom cloud looked like 2500 years ago, but that’s an impressive future-looking allegory he used isn’t it?
Nuclear conflict will be worldwide:
Please read the section entitled “The most shocking verses of scripture you will see in a long time.” It is in Edition 147.
It is a powerful and shocking description of nuclear conflict worldwide as seen by a woman in a flying basket with the “flying Megillahs”. Click Here.
The verse below implies nuclear conflict. There is no other modern weapon that can produce that sort of result on a human body. Note that this comes upon “all the people”, implying worldwide destruction.
Zechariah 14:12 “This shall be the plague with which the Lord will strike all the peoples who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, and their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths.” These are symptoms of atomic radiation as evidenced in Japan during WW11.
We can conclude that nuclear conflict is coming to many nations, Israel included. We can conclude that this will be in the run-up to the tribulation period and inside the tribulation period. It will all occur within the next seven to eight years.
Syria: The A-bomb
Isaiah 17 deals with the sudden, one-day destruction of Damascus, the capital of Syria. The destruction is so severe it includes neighbouring Amman, Jordan and a wide radius. The descriptions used can only imply a nuclear bomb. This does not mean Syria has the A-bomb – it doesn’t. The bomb will possibly come from Israel.
Iran: The A-bomb
“It has built underground facilities for the enrichment of uranium and is establishing a plutonium-production facility” – Benjamin Netanyahu (27th April 2014).
Iran is going ahead clandestinely with its nuclear bomb aspirations. It may be there already, if not very close to having one. Israel will not allow Iran to threaten them with a nuclear device! This will most likely end in the incredible destruction viewed in Ezekiel 38 & 39, also referred to as WW111.
Russia: The A-bomb
The war-talk between Russia and Ukraine has led to war-drums and the outbreak of war – what is next?
Ukraine got rid of their nuclear weapons in 2000. Today they are trying to get a new batch of A-bombs! Russia is not going to let that happen, but it may add to the conflict.
This situation is very likely going to develop into and become part of WW111. Right now it is contained within a small area. Of course it may all fizzle out, but because of the timing, it looks ominous.
Israel: The A-bomb
Israel has never admitted that it has the A-bomb, but most people in the know, believe it has. Israel has never and never will use such weapons offensively. When attacked in the near future the tables may well turn!
Believe me; you don’t want to mess with Israel on these things!
In the times that lie ahead we will see many natural disasters and as the world enters the tribulation these will be accompanied with supernatural disasters. God Himself is at work in these times.
The word “mega-seismos” means great earthquake. It can also mean a great volcano. It means a massive earth-shaking just like or worse than the A-bomb.
Here a few verses of God’s “mega-seismos” bombs, which will put man’s A-bombs to shame by comparison. These are end-time verses:
Nahum 1:5-6 “The mountains quake and the hills melt and the earth is burned at His presence...His fury is poured out like fire and the rocks are thrown down by Him.”
Micah 1:4 “The Mountains shall be molten under Him and the valleys shall be cleft as wax before the fire.”
Psalm 144:5 “Bow thy heavens, O Lord and come down: touch the mountains and they shall smoke.”
Psalm 104:32 “He looked on the earth and it trembled; He touched the hills and they smoke.”
Joel 2:3 “A fire devours before them, and behind them a flame burns; the land is like the Garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; surely nothing shall escape.”
The verses above clearly refer to mega-earthquakes and volcanoes.
God’s A-bombs will include meteorite impacts as well as larger asteroid impacts. A large asteroid hitting the sea will cause the biggest tsunamis ever known to man. Hurricanes and other extreme weather events will also be the order of the day. (Isaiah 13:13, 24:1, 19-20)
Jeremiah 51:42 “The sea has come up over Babylon; she is covered with a multitude of its waves.”
Psalm 107:25 “He commands and raises the stormy winds, which lifts up the waves of the sea.”
The Bible gives us the number of people who will be killed in Israel in the tribulation period. It also gives us the number who will be killed worldwide.
These numbers are staggering almost beyond imagination, especially considering the very short period of time in which they occur.
One quarter (25%) of the earth’s population will die during the seal judgements, leaving three quarters. (Revelation 6:8)
One third (33%) of the remaining population will die in the trumpet judgments (Revelation 9:15.) This means one third of the three quarters die leaving one fourth. The total therefore is one half (50%) of the world’s population will die in the seal and trumpet judgements combined.
In 2010 there were 7.4 billion people on earth. Today we could easily presume the number to be 7.8 billion. 50% equals 3.9 billion people. This is how many will die in these two judgements alone. The Bible does not give us the number for the whole tribulation period. But we could presume that the number would be in the region of 4 billion.
Israel will see two thirds (66%) of its population die. (Zechariah 13:8-9.) There are currently 7.9 million people in Israel. This means 5.2 million will die. This is close to six million. It may be more when all is said and done! Familiar?
I do not support the international efforts led by the Catholic church and others to abolish nuclear weapons. That would only work if all nations together complied fully and there is no chance of that. The only nations that would participate in the complete removal of all their nuclear weapons would be the western nations, leaving themselves completely exposed and vulnerable to the savage nations. The possession of nuclear weapons is a deterrent in itself. Take away the deterrent and you’re a sitting duck!
Today there is a danger in rising anti-Semitism worldwide, but the much bigger danger is the position that will be taken by the government leaders of the world relating to Israel when the pressure is on. There’s a big difference between an idiot with a spray can and idiot with an Atom bomb!
It is important to note that the repentance of the Jews en-mass will include those of the diaspora. There are numerous verses showing this. Ezekiel 20:34-43 is a good one. Jews worldwide will come to salvation. Anguish of soul, intense sorrow for the sin of rejecting their Messiah will consume them as they repent.
As the spiritual veil of blindness is removed, miraculously, out of their own scriptures will arise the Jewish Messiah – King of the universe, Lord of Glory. He has been there all along, but now He will ascend, unveiled and revealed to His people.
Isaiah 29:10-18 “For the Lord has poured out on you the spirit of deep sleep...The whole vision has become like a book that is sealed...In that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity and out of darkness.”
Ezekiel 37: The entire chapter is prophetic – the famous vision of “dry bones” coming to life is a spectacular picture of Israel coming to salvation.
Romans 11:25-26 “I do not desire, brethren that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion (pride), that hardening in part has happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved.”
The unspeakable glory:
Much of the terror of what is coming will be swallowed up in amazing love, peace, joy, and untold glory for those who respond to God. The salvation of the Jews will be like “life from the dead.” The salvation of the Gentiles including some reading this will overwhelm them with wonder. Many who are saved will be strengthened in a major way. Many backsliders will forward-slide fast and many who have heard about these things in the past, but not responded will come to glorious salvation.
These are earthshaking days of monumental drama. They are about to begin. The great escape is coming soon – are you ready?
The world has over 20,000 A-bombs, but they can’t shake your salvation. They can only strengthen it! (It was reported back in 1970 that America and Russia has sufficient A-bombs between them to blow the world 4000 times!)
What you must do:
●Our Lord will soon be presenting many of His chiselled disciples with wonderful opportunities to work with Him in preparing and bringing in a great end-time harvest of Jews and Gentiles.
●Some reading these words have a special calling. Be prepared! God is saying to some, “Because you have prepared yourself – I will use you for My great eternal purposes.”
●Reach and stretch your heart, mind and soul out to our Lord of truth and majesty. Turn to Him and let your life fall before Him and be consumed by the fire of His word.
Daniel 12:3 “Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever.”
It really is not wise to come against the living God and His word. Right now, His outstretched hand of salvation, forgiveness, love and grace is on offer to all who would receive it.
According to Genesis 12:3, there are two types of Gentiles: Those who are blessed and those who are cursed. The one who blesses God’s agent of blessing to the world is and will be blessed. The Gentile worshipper of the true God must line up with God’s ways and purposes. He must bless Israel.
It’s the cursed Gentiles who have the problem! The word “cursed” means that they are under the sway and power of a spiritual force that they can’t see.
God has a final solution that will confound all enemies and it will come about. God is not a democrat and will not ask you your opinion. He will do His will, His way, in His time and ignore you completely. How wise it is to line up with Him.
Those who have a problem with God have no problem with the devil. My friends, this entire issue is spiritually charged and going to get dramatically more so in the near-days.
Ezekiel 35:5-6 “Because you (Palestinians)have an ancient hatred and have shed the blood of the children of Israel by the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, when their iniquity came to an end, “therefore as I live” says the Lord God, “I will prepare you for blood , and blood shall pursue you.”
Ezekiel 38:19 “For in My jealousy and in My wrath I have spoken: Surely in that day there will be a great earthquake in the land of Israel.”
Jeremiah 31:1-2 “At that time, says the Lord I will be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be My people. The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness.”
I took this picture from my tent in the Namib Desert early in the morning, as these Gemsbok (Oryx) wandered by. We are at the dawn of a new beautiful world!
2 Samuel 23:4 “He shall be like the dawn of the morning when the sun rises, a morning without clouds, like tender grass springing out of the earth, by clear shining after the rain.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
