- Iraq (the home of Babylon) is reported to be lining up to make peace with Israel.
- There will be no talk of, or deal relating to the Temple Mount at this signing.
- Iran and friends threaten missile attack on Israel and the UAE because of their new friendship.

18th September 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Watch the watchmen:
But first: Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s prayer meeting, “The Return” will be held on the Washington Mall, Washington DC, on the 26th September. This day is known as Shabbat Shuvah. Interestingly the Bible reading for the day is, “Return O Israel, to the Lord your God.”(Hosea 14:2-10 Micah 7: 18-20 Joel 2:15-27) It’s all centred on a global call for the church to return to the ways of God, and for Israel’s return to Messiah.
Today is the beginning of Rosh Hashanah / Feast of Trumpets, depending on the sighting of the new moon. ●This is NOT the rapture time and start of the tribulation.
The current peace efforts between Israel and some Arab nations is NOT the final antichrist peace deal - not by any means. What they are is incremental peace efforts.
This is NOT the “peace and safety, then sudden destruction” verse coming about. That verse relates to the Daniel 9:27 peace deal and the tribulation.
But these things collectively are important in that they present a new dawn for the Middle East. The knock-on effects and influence of these peace efforts are causing others to want to jump on the band wagon too.
Because these are such critical and dangerous times, this is a more important time than ever to be led correctly by men of God who are led by the Spirit and have a history of accuracy and stability. There are many amongst the riff raff.
So many wannabe watchmen and teachers are leading people astray with inaccurate, wrong pronouncements. Some are so outrageous! A watchman of the Lord is not one who watches for possibilities. He knows where to look and what to watch for and is led by the Spirit of God, therefore he is right.
I was given some “100% for sure” information in charts and numbers and various things as to why this would be the rapture time – for sure 100%! It didn’t sit right. When checking it out myself nothing added up!
Because a blind, always-wrong watchman says something is a sign; that does not make it so, by any means.
Being wrong destroys your authority and credibility, and damages the prophetic word and the faith of others, especially new believers.
Being wrong on major biblical things means one thing for sure – absolutely: You have not heard from God and you speak your own opinions.
The Spirit led teacher / watchman will have a history of godly stability and is therefore trustworthy.
Discernment is more critical than ever in the face of fast growing deception.
Ezra 3:13 (Temple rebuilt) “The people could not discern the noise of the shout of joy from the noise of the weeping of the people...”
Error becomes an immovable mountain if not dealt with, because it is formed and secured on the pillar of pride.
Spirit led, and inspired knowledge, understanding and wisdom endures and produces godly fruit.
One way to know a false teacher: When brought to correction, they will turn on you because you won’t join them in propping up their pride!
The Spirit of God in your heart is the umpire. He brings peace when you are on the right track. But you need the baptism of the Spirit. If not your umpire is you, yourself.
The condition of the end-time church:
There is a powerful prophetic message for the end-time church hidden in the messages to the seven churches in Revelation 2 & 3. They were seven historic churches. All seven contain truth for us, but prophetically, they also plot the course of church history.
The first three churches, Ephesus, Smyrna and Pergamos speak of the times gone by. The last four plot the course of the end time church and run concurrently. They are Thyatira, representing the Catholic and other orthodox churches. (They are cast into the tribulation) Sardis is the church that has a “name to live but is dead”. They are told that Lord will come upon them as a thief and they won’t know when! This represents the denominational Spirit-less churches. (With a few exceptions) Then comes the glorious church – the church of Philadelphia. They have the key of David, opening the doors to the Jews. (Isaiah 22:22) This church keeps the word and is promised to be kept out of the tribulation. Finally we have the lukewarm church of Laodicea, which is spiritually blind. God “vomits them out of His mouth.” “Laodicea”: Strong’s G2993, “Laodikeia” From two root words: ‘Laos’ = people and ‘Dike’ =Ruling. This is the people ruled” or “people/self opinionated church.
The pictures below show all that remains of Laodicea today. The Spirit of God flew away from this church and God spat them out of His mouth. (Revelation 3:16) The pillars still standing represent truth, but all else is gone.
1 Timothy 3:15 (Amp) “You know how people must conduct themselves in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and stay – the prop and support of the truth.”
So, what we see here is a very powerful and accurate picture of the end-time church. Some of it is the walking dead. Some are a horror of evil. Some are cast into the tribulation, spat out and condemned. And right in the midst is the church who keeps and loves the word and is pro-Israel.
Bear in mind that there is a terrible, tragic church and a glorious, growing powerful church side by side in these days. Don’t get tunnel vision for just one side of the coin.
The Bible speaks of a great end-time revival (the latter rain) in the last days. (Joel 2:23, Hosea 6:3) and in many other verses.
A major prophetic mark of the times is increasing deception in the church. You can’t have increasing deception without increasing deceivers and that’s where the problem lies.
Satan used deception to try to stamp out the early church because he knew it would wreck his kingdom. Now we have the same scenario again. Sometimes you have to be severe in your dealings.
Acts 13:9-11 “Then Saul, also called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit looked intently at him and said, ‘O full of all deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all unrighteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord? And now indeed the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you shall be blind, not seeing the sun for a time, and immediately a dark mist fell upon him...”
It is most important to know prophetic things to come, but also the timing of those things, to avoid deception. You must see with spiritual eyes today.
A Spirit-led and inspired watchman / teacher is always restrained in what he sees and says. He is led by the restrainer.
We are now at the start of the new Hebrew year 5781. It will end and change to 5782 on Rosh Hashanah 2021. That is September 7th - 8th 2021. That’s a very important date!!
This year, 5781 is going to be year like no other. It’s going to be a wild time of stress, strain and pressure. But in the midst there will be islands of peace amongst the pillars of truth.
The good news is that we are on the verge of great revival. We are seeing it in many nations of the east. Of course there will always be churches deteriorating and dying.
Many of those who have gone off into a ditch will repent and return. Many will continue to slip and slide further away.
As we enter the beginning of these wild times, I want to assure you that The Prophetic Scroll will be your place of spiritual stability and rest.
Edition 219. August 6th 2014
All about judgment:
All about judgment:
Malachi 3:18 “Then you shall again discern between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not.”
The issues of today are defining of the prophetic time we are in.
Today most of the church is an ineffective dead duck. Its pastors and leaders are excellent propagators of Satan’s “dance in the dark with the world.” They have produced a flock of puppets of the world.
As we charge forward into the early stages of end-time prophetic fulfilment there are many things we must know very well and be sure of. There are many things we need to judge. Some of these things we must judge for our own benefit and others that we must judge to take a larger stand on certain issues.
Amongst your greatest enemies are those who say “Do not judge.”
One of the biggest lies in town is “Do not judge.” Many ignorant people, saved and unsaved have seen or heard about some verse somewhere that says something like that. The spirit of pride in them jumps on the bandwagon and now you have a bunch of blind puppets participating in this dangerous deception.
Matthew 7:1 “Judge not that you be not judged.”
This verse above is the one! But what does it really mean? In the original, the verse has a “continuous tense” aspect to it. Quite simply it means that we should not get into a continuous judgment of people in which we put them down and elevate ourselves. It is all about being self-righteous, proud and arrogant on a continuous basis.
It does not mean don’t judge between right and wrong, truth and error or even certain people.
Here is “judgment” from our Lord’s point of view:
John 5:30 “I can of My own self do nothing. As I hear I judge; and My judgment is righteous because I do not seek My own will, but the will of the Father who sent me.”
John 7:24 “Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.”
1 Corinthians 2:15 “The spiritual man judges all things, but he himself is judged by no one.”
So, we see now that there’s much more to the subject.
Who must judge?
1 Corinthians 2:15 “The spiritual man judges all things, but he himself is judged by no one.
You don’t want a little kid running around with a loaded firearm. The verse above says it is the “spiritual man” who is to judge. Obviously this relates to the bigger issues of life and where other people are involved.
As far as we ourselves are concerned personally, we must all judge ourselves against the word of God.
2 Corinthians 13:5 “Examine (judge) yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Prove yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Yeshua the Messiah is in you, unless indeed you are disqualified?”
1 Corinthians 11:31“For if we would judge ourselves we would be not judged.”
There are over 700 Bible verses dealing with our needs to judge!
So, all of us need to judge ourselves regularly against the word of God in faith and it is only the spiritually mature who are to judge “all things.”
What we must judge:
Quite simply we must judge all the things that the Bible commands us to judge. Most believers today are ignorant of their Bible except of course for “Do not judge!”
The most important and biggest thing is doctrine. Contrary to popular belief, the Bible has plenty to say on this and it is extremely strong! It must be the cause of separation. Did you know that? Here are some shocking verses for you:
2 Timothy 3:5 “Having a form of godliness, but denying its power, from such turn away.”
1 John 4:1 “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”
Romans 16:17 “Now I urge you brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.”
1 Corinthians 1:10 “Now I plead with brethren by the name of our Lord, Yeshua, that you all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and judgment.”
We must judge current affairs. We must judge the moral issues of our day. We must speak God’s word into these things and be separate from the evils of the world. We must judge into the most important issue of our day, which is Israel, Jerusalem, the Jews and God’s word on the issues.
The terrible danger of not judging:
Matthew 12:30 “He that is not with Me is against Me.”
Isaiah 59:8 (A Psalm of separation from God). “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 path shall not know peace.”
Why is it that not judging is so dangerous? It is simply because God requires that we do. You will be wide open to all manner of error, false doctrine and other garbage if you do not judge rightly.
In this day we are seeing an outpouring of deception, which our Lord warned against many times. One of the major characteristics of the end time scenario is deception.
But more than that we are also in a world of moral collapse, where Biblical virtues are being attacked and thrown out. If you do not judge / discern into these situations, you are complicit by your silence and a spineless push-over for the devil. He will capitalise on your capitulation and you will regret it forever!
Let me share with you a terrible example from hell itself. I know this individual who believes that all people want peace. He believes that peace is the big thing and everything must be bent and twisted so that world peace can be created! Sounds good hey?
►If it is possible to have world peace now, God and Satan would have to make peace! Think about that for a while. Peace will never come to this world until the world’s “peace-maker”, Satan is destroyed.
Here is the only way to world peace. Do you see that peace of any description, especially world peace can only be achieved through the cross of Messiah?
Colossians 1:20 “He has reconciled all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of the cross.” Anything or anyone that has not gone through the work of the cross is impure.
The safety of judgment:
Psalm 37:30 “The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom, and his tongue talks of justice.”
When you are in a world that has borders and barriers, you feel safe, unless you’re a skydiver!
The one who knows experientially the judgment of God is pure and of great value in God’s hands. Taking God’s word and judging yourself in line with it, will make you different, glorious, wonderful, safe, secure, confident and give you great insight into so many things. God Himself will open to you the secrets of His wisdom.
The word in your heart is your greatest comfort and security. Inviting the word into every aspect of your life is the best thing you can ever do. Apart from the safety it creates, it gives you confidence to go forward, knowing that you are clean and holy.
In fact holiness, righteousness and judgment are synonymous in many respects.
I warn you:
What you believe and allow into your life now in terms of the Middle East situation is a rising fence between heaven and hell. It is all a deadly, dangerous spiritual conflict that most people are blind to. If you are blind to a very big enemy, you are in trouble.
There are very big judgements coming from God on the whole world in relation to these things very soon. You had better be on the right side! We are in a situation where God is pouring out His grace and goodness on those who are His. He is also delivering “strong delusion” on those who are not with Him.
Please bear in mind that there is no middle ground. Our Lord says, “If you are not with Me, you are against Me. Do you want to be against God in these days?
You must know your Bible well in these days. You must see with spiritual eyes and you must see the hosts of demons at work to bring you to great success with the god of the world. If you can’t see spiritual forces at work you are in danger and you know what you must do to get spiritual eyes.
Your biggest enemy:
You feed from your biggest enemy every day! Of course its fine to get the news in the broader sense from the mass media, but most people have no idea at all that they are dealing with Satan himself in his “angel of light,” disguise!
The most dangerous people on earth today are the journalists, editors and bosses of the mass media. They are driven by disguised gods, and demons to influence and change you. I will have much more to say about this in the next edition.
It is the Godly, the strong and those who are right with God who judge rightly all the time. It is the spineless and weak who do not judge.
You must be different! Not in the energy of the flesh, but by and through the Spirit of God working in you. What you tolerate and what you allow into your life speaks volumes.
2 Corinthians 6:17 “Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you.”
I took this picture in spectacular Namaqualand. This area springs to life with billions of wild flowers for a short time over an area stretching more than 1000 kms.

Shalom and grow in grace!
