|This ministry has a distinct kingdom vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for Israel and the church. My position is pre-trib! I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share with you the great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God, to bless Israel and her people and the kingdom of God.|

●With more and more Covid vaccines being developed, we could be close to the objective of the World Health Organisation of getting the whole vaccinated! This brings up all the issues of massive control and the coming of the mark system. The control aspect will only come into force in the tribulation period, but we are seeing what could turn out to be the forerunner of it all.
●The next of the major forerunners still “run” is war. It is coming soon.
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.

Most people, since the invention of the pop-up toaster want their Christianity the same way, which is instant, pop-up results without going through the discipleship and maturing process, and without having the carpet pulled out from under them, defeating their self-life, ego and dethroning their pride.
The ministry office of the evangelist throws the seed out and it brings the people in to the kingdom. But you can’t live there. You need to move on to the ministry of the teacher / pastor, and become a disciple, which is much more than a convert.
This is where you have to sit down, shut up and be taught the deeper things of God. You need to move from milk to meat. This is where you pay the price, and it costs you everything you are.
The problem is that either the modern teacher is too shallow and spineless, or the recipient is, and he just doesn’t want to pay any price at all.
Matthew 28:19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations...teaching them all things I have commanded.”
Luke 9:23 “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me.”
Luke 14:33 “Whoever of you does not forsake all that he has, cannot be My disciple.”
The original word for “Disciple” is Strong’s G3101, ‘Mathetes’. Meanings: Subjected pupil learner.
We could rightly say that the word means to be subjected under the authority of another, for instruction, correction, and training in righteousness.
The Lord makes converts and then disciples of those converts. Being a subjected pupil learner takes time and it takes sacrifice. Note the conditions for discipleship in the verses above. They are foreign to today’s pop-up superficial, clown-like Christian.
The image below is a compilation I put together of various artist impressions of the disciples. (I will share the other six soon) Bear in mind that these men gave their lives to serve our Lord and finally were all martyred in horrific manners, except for John. I have to say that the renaissance artists captured perfectly the drama and emotion of it all. (Brings tears to my eyes.)
The Prophetic Scroll has always endeavoured to bring you a mix of exciting prophetic material, relevant to today, as well as with a lot of “hard sayings” thrown in, for your edification and growth. “Consider both the goodness and severity of God”, says the Bible.
But, you see, too many want their ears tickled and are only interested in flashy, shouty, stage-stomping entertainment with a few pretty verses thrown in. And of course bright lights and sound effects too - to manipulate the masses.
Main stream Christianity is for those going with the flow. Present worldly Christianity is their measure. True Bible-based Christianity is for those going against the flow, with their ‘sail’ tacking into the wind!
A yacht can go fast with the flow of the wind with its spinnaker up. But it can also move forward into the wind with the sail set correctly. Evangelism is fast, discipleship is slow.
The winds of the world are blowing towards hell, and many lukewarm, compromised, half-baked, partly counterfeit churches too.
Those with the wind in their face are few in number. It’s always been that way. But remember the ultimate, great assessment by our Lord is coming up. No one will escape it.
Is the wind at the back of your head as you go with the flow, or in your face? Oooo – it’s so nice and cool with the wind in your face as you go forward with our Lord at the helm.
I once heard an ill-equipped minister, Rev, Harry Halfbaked, who produced a great many Christian failures (that he thought were a success) teach graduating ministers how to evangelise. He used all the methods of self promotion, self exaltation, self-esteem and worldly ways of promotion, all designed to manipulate and entertain the masses.
The ministry of the cross, brokenness and repentance were totally foreign, as they are in so many churches today.
Those who have cut their spiritual teeth on the old-school teachers and the hard sayings of hell-fire and brimstone preachers of old, or no-compromise teachers are the ones who grow into stable Christians. The big thing is to have the carpet pulled out from under you early in your walk.
If not you will always be a squirmy half dead Christian living in a cloud-cuckoo – never never land, in the realm of the half-baked wishy-washies.
Don’t be afraid to be hard on yourself, particularly in these days. Don’t be afraid of the cross, it is the only way to glory. Surrender and submit to the leading of the Spirit and follow His prompting.
There is a fatal satanic attraction in the error of superficiality. When it manifests it’s like glue, and the majority get stuck in the rut. Don’t mess with it!
No one will ever approach God on their own terms! Even though there is little time left, God will not compromise on the character of His disciples.
Edition 218. July 30th 2014
Images of Israel:
Images of Israel:
For a change, especially at this time, I’ve designed this edition as a visual representation and tribute to the Israeli Defense Force.
The purpose of this edition is again to show my own personal rock-solid predilection in favour of God’s word for Israel and to identify myself and the Prophetic Scroll unambiguously with God’s word in this regard.
Amos 9:15 “I will plant them (Jews) in their land, and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord your God.”
Psalm 129:5 “Let them all be confounded and turned back who hate Zion.”
Some quick definitions that I will refer to:
●Déjà vu, means, “already seen” or that “Been there before” feeling.
●Jamais vu, means, “Never seen before”, or “not recognised.”
●Presque vu, means, “almost seen” or, “on the tip of recognition.”
All my life, even before I had been to Israel, I was in the “Presque vu” camp. I knew all about Israel. My mother had brought me up with a love for Israel and the Jews. I could always “see” Israel in my mind’s eye.
Then when I went there the first time, I had a dramatic experience. I can only describe it as a powerful Déjà vu. I had the sense that that I had been there before and everything was familiar. On top of this Déjà vu, I had a powerful Presque vu feeling as well, realising that I was on the edge of eternity, looking towards many powerful things to come.
I realised pretty quickly that I was seeing with a spiritual eye and seeing things from God’s point of view. Especially around Jerusalem, I had a powerful sense of excitement. I saw in my mind’s eye, terrible war, conflict and destruction. I “saw” the pride and resulting blindness of the Jews.
I “saw” the “eternal hatred” of the Arab people for the Jews. I saw their jealousy and their regret that they had “sold their birthright for a meal”.
In my mind’s eye I looked back to our Lord looking over Jerusalem with tears in His eyes, for His people who had rejected Him and what it would take to bring them to repentance.
Then just as quickly my fertile mind was in the future and I “saw” our Great King of Majesty, retuning to these dusty streets to welcome His now- repentant people, but not after great calamity, war and revolt.
The problem is that too many people in this world have only “Jamais vu” in their heads and can’t see or recognise anything at all relating to Israel. Their deceived teachers have taught them nothing of the Lord’s compassion for His people in the past and their dramatic coming to salvation in the near future.
Some people are just on the edge, in a world of “Presque vu” – on the tip of recognising God’s great plans for Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews.
The big enemy of Presque vu and Déjà vu is “Jamais vu” as perpetrated by the world’s mass media. They are the true enemies of God and friends of the world. As such they can’t see any of God’s plans for Israel. Their job is to inform the people, but because of their blindness, they do so with error, satanic prejudice and miss-information.
Israel’s journey has been like no other – it is almost at its most magnificent and dramatic conclusion! It’s been a journey of rebellion, obedience, love, punishment through wars, with all the odds stacked against her. But God has been there and still is there for her.
So with this in mind, I want to present and share with you some images of Israel in conflict now. These have been taken by some top press photographers. They reveal times of gravity, severity and drama.
A tribute to the Israeli Air Force:
A tribute to the Israeli Defence Force:
A tribute to the girls of the Israeli Defence Force:
Israel, be strong and courageous, the near future is going to see intensifying conflict. Satan will turn up the heat as he sees you open your eyes to your Messiah of Glory – Yeshua.
These are dramatic days of destiny and the unfolding of God’s plans and the attacks of the devil.
A tribute to the steadfastness and glory of Hashem, our God of glory:
Zechariah 8:13 “It shall come to pass that just as you were a curse amongst the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you, and you shall be a blessing. Do not fear, let your hands be strong.”
Obadiah 1:10 “For your (Esau – a type of the modern Palestinians) violence against your brother Jacob (Jews) shame shall cover you, and you shall be cut off forever.”
Genesis 15:18 “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river Euphrates.”
Genesis 17:7-8 “I will establish My covenant between Me and you (Abraham) and your descendants for an everlasting covenant, also I will give to your descendants the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan as an everlasting possession and I will be their God.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
