|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.|
►We have now reached 47 million regular visitors.
►Next Edition, Lord willing: "Meanderings and musings of my mind."
Why the pre-trib rapture is the only view that adds up and works.
- US Democratic Party diplomat calls for Nations with a Christian influence to come against Israel, saying “Jesus Christ came to save the whole world from the Jews...Jews are not chosen!”
- Report: “Obama tried to give the Golan to Syria.” But then came Trump who “gave” the Golan to Israel! And the difference is = The Bible!
- US Dems take followers further and further away from all things related to a nation under God.
- Russia warns Israel: "No more attacks on Syria or we will strike back."
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.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
War drums and trumpets:
Firstly I would like to really thank all those who have recently donated to this ministry. I must say I was amazed at the incredible response from so many. Thank you very much for your blessing to the kingdom of God, above all.
There’s a risk in giving out names that some will feel left out if I don’t name them. So please know that you are all being thanked and will be rewarded. You have encouraged me greatly with your gratitude. You are special! We go on to ever increasing glory!
I give you my assurance that I will continue to give you my best, in spite of wanting to go and live under a tree in the desert sometimes.
Please keep The Prophetic Scroll in your prayer, in that it stays open and unrestricted in these dangerous days. Also keep it as your essential go-to place for what is really happening, and for your deep spiritual growth.
The rumbling war drums:
Drum beats have many classifications. We have blues beat, disco beat, the jazz swing, the motown groove and more. But we also have a particular drum beat of war and battle. The drums of war actually originate from the repeating drum beat of the shaman or witchdoctor.
A certain drum beat would mean either dance or get ready for war. The drum beat would stimulate and strengthen the body and forge a sense of unity by the beat. They would unite the human and the spirit world. The drums of war were also referred to as the drums of death, especially when combined with trumpets.
I said all of that just for this: Can you hear the drums of war rolling? Can you hear the crescendo of drums and trumpets of great conflict echoing through the atmosphere?
This is where we are now. The drums and trumpets are only for those with ears to hear. Others would be wise to listen to those with ears to hear.
The terrible war machine of the nations is warming up to take control of the sleeping nations, who are led by the aged and wrinkled of mind, the pacifists and the true enemies of real liberty and freedom.
Russia is beating the war-drums as she threatens Israel with attack for attacking Iranian targets in Syria. Syria is beating new war drums covered with the ash of long-standing war. Iran is beating the war drum against Israel again, again, again!
Biden and his party are asleep to it all, including the blonde half-baked fairy from hell whose grand burning desire is to change the gender of kids.
It’s not just the US. Europe is worse in many areas.
It seems that insanity has suddenly been let out of the cage and is infecting the world so fast. Here is one of the succinct verses about those who have forsaken the Lord:
Deuteronomy 28:28 “The Lord will strike you with madness and blindness and confusion of mind.”
In the old days we would fight over God’s creative beauty - a girl, and the girls would fight over us – Oh the good ole-days!
The bigger wars are fought over property, religion, political systems and the like. But there is really only one war that is of importance and that is the war to eliminate God’s beautiful creative purpose for Israel. It comes in many guises, but that is the underlying reason. It’s purely spiritual. It is the devil against God, at the end of the day.
So now we sit on the brink of war – the big one! Drums are rolling, trumpets are blowing and madmen from hell are arising, struck with blinding confusion and their weapons of annihilation tucked into their big-bird, metal wings.
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall; Humpty Dumpty had a great fall, because an atom bomb blew him to smithereens. And all the king’s horses and all the king’s men took seven years to clean up the remnants of poor Humpty. What fun!
I can hear the drums of drama but I also hear the trumpet calling me to go and live under a tree in the desert! (Move over lions.)
The great war for God’s son – Israel, is prophesied. (Exodus 4:22-23) It’s all getting pretty hot in here. You need to know these things. You need to know why all things and people of God are targets.
People with no knowledge of the living God are fools, and easy to manipulate and turn into cannon fodder for every dumb gun in town.
You need to be anchored in the truth.
True living is living in truth.
If you try to befriend Satan and appease him, and walk in peace with him, you will automatically, by default, set yourself up as an enemy of God and you will pay the price!
Yes, Israel will miss it again and fall under punishment again, but the most stupid thing you can do is come against Israel in the bigger, overall picture.
Biden prepares to “kill” the Second Amendment right to bear arms in the US. Israel observes and compares this to Haman’s actions to try to destroy the Jews. Biden befriends the enemies of the west and of Israel in Yemen and Iran steps right in!
There was a time when God overlooked the ignorance of stupid, dumb politicians and people, but that day is gone (Acts 17:30, Acts 14:16)
Here’s a verse that should blow a lot more than your socks off:
Esther 9:1-2 “On the day that the enemies of the Jews had hoped to overpower them, the opposite occurred, in that the Jews themselves overpowered those who hated them...No one could withstand them because the fear of them fell upon all people.”
Take note, I say again take note, of the gravity of this verse above!!
The enemies of God and his son Israel, are united under Satan. The political parties, churches, inter-faith organisations and false religions of the world already have an unwritten unity between them – a hell bound unity!
The unity between true born-again believers is a unity based on truth and not lovey-dovey feelings.
As a believer, your culture must change! Your character and your personality must change as you grow in God. If not you will end up going with the flow of the wind.
Edition 225. September 17th 2014
Rest in peace!
Rest in peace:
The biggest most tragic lie in the world is found on the tombstones of untold millions of people. Rest in Peace or RIP is an absolute lie, except for the few who were genuinely saved. There is no rest for the wicked, says the Bible and there is no peace in hell.
The great majority of those in the graves under the sign “RIP” are in great torment in hell.
Because you place “RIP” on a tombstone, do you think that makes any difference to the person’s life while he was here? Who do you think you are – God?
Do you think a person rests in peace in death because he or she was a good person as proclaimed by the minister at the funeral?
We are heading fast for the seven-year tribulation. About 4 billion people will die unnatural deaths in the seven year period! I believe, in a pre-tribulation rapture, but we will all still see the birth-pangs and forerunners.
With all this in mind, in this edition I want to direct you into your own heart, beliefs, experiences and actions in preparation for our Lord.
The power of the cross:
The greatest deceiver in the world is your own self. Self will always tell you that you’re okay and you can do it. You don’t need the cross, no dying for you, have fun in the world. Do you know that anything in this world can be turned into an idol by a self-ruled heart, and every idol needs to be destroyed! It will either be destroyed by you or ultimately by God.
The false, counterfeit minister will always lead you away from cross-bearing into idolatry. The true minister will see your need for the cross, brokenness and surrender.
Today the cry of the shallow shepherds is “come to God and have a jolly good time, full of worldly pleasures.” They say, “Come to God and find self-fulfilment, self-love, self motivation, self esteem, and self glorification – all with God, your sponsor leading the way!
Yes, come to God for salvation, but don’t think He owes you anything and don’t think that you’re coming to God because you’re so special that He needs you! You must come to Him in helpless surrender and repentance, and then God will kill you!
He will say to you, “You are useless to Me.” He will say to you, “That cross lying there is what you must take up daily. You must die daily”!
Don’t get me wrong, if you have sincerely come to our Lord for salvation and you get run over by a bus before you even touch your own cross, you will be saved. What I’m talking about here is discipleship and moving along the road to deeper victory through and in the salvation of the soul.
You must consciously apply the cross of Messiah to your life and take up your own cross daily. The cross is the great killer. It is the killer of death itself. It is the killer of sin and evil. Yes, the power of sin has been defeated by the cross of Calvary, but we still need to deal with the lingering effects of sin in our lives by taking up our own cross.
● In a certain sense, we are going from His victory in us to our victory in Him.
●You must see and sense that you are moving from death into resurrection life. The cross is the killer; the resurrection is the life- giver.
●We must see our Lord on the cross paying the price for our sin, and be co-crucified with Him. We must then see our Lord on the throne; this is the way to victory forever.
A major characteristic of self on the throne is that it will keep you from taking up your cross and denying self! You can’t take up a cross while self is seated on the throne! This will keep you under the sway and power of the devil.
Are you becoming holy? Are your sins dropping off? Is your life moving from cross-death to the reality of resurrection life? My friends, resurrection life is all about a new world of rest and peace forever.
You see, as the cross saves us, destroys self-love, world-love and the demonic in us; we are delivered to holiness and His resurrection life. This is true power. This is why people who have gone this way are hated by the devil and those who are enemies of the cross of Messiah.
Holiness has a very special beauty and attraction to it, but it is hated by the counterfeit Christian and the disciples of the devil.
The army of God is a bride of purity. These are the ones who are needed in this day. God will not use people who worship the true God and the god of this world.
Exodus 33:13-14 “If I have found grace in Your sight, show me now your way, that I may know You and that I might find grace in your sight...And He said, ‘My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.’”
Those who have found their lives in the world have missed it! They unwittingly present to everyone this false “salvation”. Success in the world is the way to be, they say!
The success of the atheist is failure. The success of the celebrity is failure. The success of the whole world is failure, because it has not been purified by the cross.
Imagine driving down a road to an expected destination, and you’ve been on the wrong road all along, with a map book on the seat next to you which you didn’t even open.
Far too many are trying to attain all the promises of God - His goodness and provision - but they are ‘thieves’. They think they can get all the good fruits of knowing God without coming to God His way. The reality is that you can’t steal anything from God. Almost all the unsaved of the world want God’s salvation, but they don’t want God’s interference in their lives. They want forgiveness without repentance.
People spend their lives striving for their own breed of perfection, success and happiness. It’s mostly based on materialism, but essentially on what the media says you must be. Imagine striving all your life for perfect peace and landing in hell! Measuring up to the world does not crack it with God!
If you’re not preparing yourself for Messiah with the leading of the Spirit, you will be led and prepared by the apostate spirit of the false church, for the antichrist!
Isaiah 44:18 "They do not know nor understand, for He has shut their eyes so that they can't see and shut and darkened their hearts so that they can't understand."
2 Corinthians 4:3-4 "Our gospel is hidden to them that are lost in whom the god of this world has blinded the eyes of them who believe not."
When the church makes sense to the world it has fallen!
To know truth you must want to know it, and be prepared to change your tune.
Believing will not get you saved. Millions go to church every Sunday believing that they are saved because they believe in Jesus. You must be born again. There is a huge difference between believing and being born-again. All those who are born-again are believers, but not all those who believe are born-again! Believing happens in your head while the new-birth happens in your heart with a new creation being the result, filtering through to the mind.
Even the devils and demons believe, but are most certainly not saved! (James2:19)
Believing, for the true born-again Christian is all about a broken contrite heart and Spirit- led truth. Believing, for the professing non-born again Christian is a doorway for all manner of spirits of error and demons especially in this day.
2 Corinthians 5:15 “He died for all that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.”
John 12:43 “They loved the praise (approval) of men more than the approval of God.”
Galatians 1:10 “Do I now persuade men or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a servant of Messiah.”
Rest and peace in these end-times:
The soon coming tribulation period will be exactly that – a time of unprecedented trouble, tribulation, war, conflict, death and destruction. As regular readers know, I believe in a pre-tribulation rapture (See editions dealing with this in the “Editions by subject” index.) I also believe, as do many others, that the tribulation will begin on a Feast of Trumpets. It could be this one on the 25th, but now looks more likely to be the next.
Either way, it’s all rolling along very soon. With these terrible times will come terrible times in the hearts and minds of most people.
Are you living for our Lord or for yourself? Our deep rest lies in surrender and looking to our Lord away from yourself. It’s a liberating great thing when you discover that you are no longer your own but His, for His purposes.
When you realise that you were created for a purpose, you are on the way to living with purpose. (And no I’m not talking about the damned “purpose driven life” of the cursed emergent church frauds.)
As you realise you were created for a purpose, God begins to prepare you for that purpose. What a wonderful story. Your eyes are opened more and more, the veil is parted more and more and magnificent things begin to happen in the core of your being.
1 Corinthians 2:16 “To one we are the aroma of death to death and to the other the aroma of life.”
Think of everything God has done, think of every atom in the universe. Think of time, space, judgment, love, holiness. Think of the One who knows everything that there is to know. Think of God’s grace and mercy. How can you not be dramatically affected forever by an encounter with this God?
As the world races towards its greatest and most tragic appointment and encounter with the Judge of all judges, turmoil, tragedy, stress and conflict will intensify and be the order of the day.
Revelation 6:4 “The fiery red horse went out and it was granted to him who sat on it to take peace from the earth.”
Revelation 12:12 “Rejoice O heavens and all who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea, for the devil has come down to you having great wrath, because he knows that his time is short.”
Into this great drama you are appointed to do the work of the great King and bring the rest and peace of God to multitudes in the valley of decision.
Peace in these days:
In these days of turmoil, you can be and must be different. You must be our Lord’s messenger, but you must be the message yourself! What an amazing privilege we have bestowed on us!
Have a deep look into these verses:
Psalm 119:165 “Great peace have those who love Your word and nothing causes them to stumble.”
Isaiah 48:18 “Oh that you had heeded My commandments! Then your peace would be like a river and your righteousness like the waves of the sea.”
Isaiah 26:3 “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You.”
Psalm 147:11-14 “The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him, in those who hope in His mercy...He makes peace in your borders.”
Proverbs 3:13-17 “Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding...All her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her and retain her.”
John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither be afraid.”
No peace in these days:
Christianity has been so infiltrated with the spirit of the world that it’s poisonous. Motivational self-orientation and superficial stimulation is needed to keep the so-called converts content. These self-confident, sorrow-less fools masquerading as Christians claim to have power, but they are full of evil and a counterfeit power.
The worldly wolves behind the pulpit have modified the cross to suit their own golden-calf pleasures.
God is the author of truth and He leads into truth. Self, the world, the media and the demonic create error and lead you into it.
God is not confused. So how did we end up with 30,000 ‘Christian’ denominations? It’s a result of the cross being cast aside and self-will ruling the roost.
Today there is no restraint, because there are no absolutes or consequences. The preaching of the law as a schoolmaster has long gone. In its place has come the preaching of tolerance of sin and excessive grace and liberty.
Jeremiah 14: 13-14 “The prophets say to them, you shall not see the sword nor famine but I will give you assured peace in this place. And the Lord said, ‘the prophets prophesy lies in My name. I have not sent them...”
Here are a few tragic verses of great significance:
Proverbs 29:18 “Where there is no vision (prophetic revelation) the people cast off restraint.”
Deuteronomy 29:19-20 “I shall have peace even though I walk in the imaginations of my own heart...The Lord would not spare him.”
Isaiah 57:20-21 “The wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no peace says my God for the wicked.”
Isaiah 59:8 “The way of peace they have not known, they have no justice, their paths are crooked; whoever takes that way shall not know peace.”
Daniel 8:25 “Through his (antichrist’s) cunning he will cause deceit to prosper under his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart. He shall destroy many in their peace and prosperity. He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without human hand.”
1 Thessalonians 5:3 “When they say peace and safety, then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labour pains upon a pregnant woman, and they shall not escape.”
How to know if you’re saved and on the right track:
●You know that you’re different and something changed in your heart.
●Your thought life changes. You are willing to repent. A pure heart with pure thoughts leads you to a holy and pure life.
●You begin to see the word of the world and its mouthpiece, the mass media, as your enemy.
●There must be a noticeably devastating effect on your relationship with the world, self and the demonic.
●You will be led to have no relationship with the super dragon-church with two horns like a lamb, the vampire blood drinkers and cannibal flesh-eaters (Eucharist), the sex-goddess worshipers (Ishstar or Easter) and sun god of Christmas. You will be led to identify and remove what that the evil Catholic church has brought into the world. (Oh did you know Saint Nick is an ancient title for Satan?)
●You will see the darkness. Being in the light, you will see clearly where you are going and how to get there.
●You will be growing and glowing in holiness. The word ‘holiness’ means “separation”, or to be “apart from.” It means to be separate from the spirit of the world, Satan, the demonic and all such things. It means to be cleansed, set apart and different from all that has not gone through the cross of Messiah.
●If God is at work, He will lead you with others in unity into all truth. It is truth that creates peace. When you discover that 2+2=4 and not 5 you rest in peace.
●You will be a great friend to Israel and the Jewish people in spite of their warts and in spite of the majority of churches turning against them.
Here are a few powerful verses for your meditation:
Revelation 18:4 “And I heard another voice from heaven saying, ‘come out of her (Babylon) My people lest you share in her sins, and let her receive of her plagues.’”
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.”
Philippians 3:10 “That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death.”
Psalm 55:18 “He has redeemed my soul in peace from the battle which was against me, for there were many against me.”
The shed blood of Messiah is the antithesis of the blood of Satan flowing in the veins of all who are outside of the cross of Messiah. The shed blood of Messiah can only come into your life and bring with it its dramatic effects by choice at the new birth. The unrighteous blood of Satan flows in the unsaved automatically, by natural birth. The difference is as far as distance between heaven and hell.
One comes by natural means and the other by supernatural means. One sets truly free while the other is inbred slavery. One loves the other, while the other hates the One!
Do you think you will be saved because you are good? You fool! Satan has tried to get mankind to “be as God” since that day in the garden! So many are full of the knowledge of the tree of good and evil, they are full of knowledge and wisdom. That good will get you a one way ride to hell.
If you are on the right track, you will be moving forward with our Lord from the dimension of rest and peace to the next – forever forward!
The pursuit of God is easy if you want to. Many people secretly love sin and have no chance of getting near God in that state. If you look for the truth you will find comfort. If you look for comfort you will find neither.
What must you do?
There is so little time left. As the things of this world begin to shake, masses will come looking for the truth.
Can God use you? Is your life usable in a true Biblical sense? Are you prepared to pay the price to become one of God’s servants at this exciting time?
What is your life? Who are you? Have you come to God’s kingdom to find His purpose for creating you? Or have you been moulded and created by the media for hell?
Acts 20:24 “I do not count my life dear to me, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Yeshua, to testify to the grace of God.”
I took this picture in a mangrove swamp. Those are roots and a new plant springing up.
Ephesians 5:8 “You were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of the light.”
Shalom and grow in grace!
