|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.|

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 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!
