- Uranium found at new undeclared Iranian site. They are pushing the buttons alright! (The world, particularly the EU’s inability to bring Iran to book is giving them license to continue their march towards their repeated intended goal of attacking Israel.)
- Israel comes under heavy rocket attack from Gaza after the killing of Islamic Jihad terror leader. This morning (13th) rockets continue to fall on Israel. Palestinian Preseident says, "Israel must stop its aggression!"
- Islamic Jihad says, "We're going to war with Israel." (12th November)
- Bible prophecy is about to take another leap forward!
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
Exodus 19:5-6 “If you (Israel) will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine. And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation...”
Amos 9:15 “I will plant them (Israel) in their land, and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord God.”
Isaiah 41:11 “Behold all those who were incensed against you (Israel) shall be ashamed and disgraced; they shall be as nothing, and those who strive with you shall perish.”
Isaiah 44:18 “They do not know nor understand; for He has shut their eyes so they cannot see, and their hearts so they cannot understand.”
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 243. January 20th 2015
What are the Israel signs now?
What are the Israel signs now?
The title image above shows the interior of the Holocaust Museum, Yad Vashem in Jerusalem and the exterior of the Shrine of Book museum in which the Dead Sea Scrolls are housed, also in Jerusalem.
The Shrine contains the words of prophecy that predicted the Holocaust, which are seen here in the victims now enshrined in Yad Vashem. The Shrine also contains the prophecies of the soon-coming Holocaust!
The Isaiah Scroll is one of the Dead Sea Scrolls. It is virtually the entire book of Isaiah, which goes a long way to proving the veracity of the Bible. Isaiah contains many prophecies of the sufferings of the Jews. It also contains the answer which is our substitute, the suffering servant, our Lord Yeshua in Isaiah 53.
Many of the prophecies of Isaiah contain a double reference and relate to times past and times now and just ahead.
This most certainly is the greatest drama the world has ever seen or known and it is all about to intensify. The stage is set, the actors are in place, the orchestra is warming up and the curtain is just starting to rise.
This drama sees more death and destruction upon this world than ever before, but it has a most glorious, wonderful conclusion, which we will have a brief look at. Unfortunately the political leaders of the day won’t be looking at this story of truth even though they the devil’s disciples are players themselves.
Whenever God moved with Israel in the past, Satan arose and tried to prevent it. This is the case now. The Jews are about ready to come to salvation in large numbers and we see Satan working through his chief agents - the mass-media and the world’s politicians.
Now have a look at this amazing prophecy:
Jeremiah 16:16 “Behold, I will send for many fisherman, says the Lord, and they shall fish them (Jews); and afterwards I will send for may hunters and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.”
The recent events of France and the soon coming anti-Semitic events of Europe and other nations are in fact the beginning of this verse of prophecy in Jeremiah. Fishermen lure and draw their prey, but hunters drive their prey. We are now at this changeover point. The Jews have been and are still being lured back to their land and hunted and driven back.
Wouldn’t it be something if a cartoon led to Jews returning to Israel in large numbers!
The shock of the nations and the Muslims:
Imagine going on a life’s journey and getting to the end and finding you were on the wrong road all along? I’m not talking here of a little mistake, but an enormous, massive mess-up that has resulted in millions of deaths and will result in many millions more!
This is the great mistake of the Pharaohs, the Caesars, all the Popes, Hitler, the denominational churches, many Charismatic churches, the world’s politicians, all the world’s mass media and all Muslims.
They all thought they could make world peace their way. In our day this is seen in the many efforts to divide and share Israel and Jerusalem among the peoples. Dividing the land in our day is seen in Joel 3:2. Note that it brings war and not peace. Dividing the city of Jerusalem is seen in Zechariah 12:2-3 and also brings war and not peace.
In a few previous editions, I’ve shared with you how the Muslim Quran instructs its followers to behead their enemies. I’ve shared on the Quran’s hatred for dogs. Now let me share with you what the Muslim Quran says about the ownership of Israel and who really owns the land, which would obviously include Jerusalem.
Here it is: “Allah gave the land of Israel to the Jews and will restore them to it in the end of days.” Sura 28: 5-6 “Allah gave the persecuted people (the Jews) dominion over the eastern and western lands, which we have blessed (East and west banks of Jordan River). Thus your Lord’s gracious word was fulfilled for the Israelites.”
Sura 17:104 “Before the end of days, God will bring the children of Israel to re-take possession of the land, gathering them from many different countries and nations.”
The two logos below, of the Palestinian Authority and Hamas are wrong by the confession of the Quran (above). Note the maps of Israel in green. They imply that all of Israel is theirs – the Palestinians!
Now let me give you a brief lesson from our Bible:
Ezekiel 20:41-42 “I will accept you (Israel) as a sweet aroma when I bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you have been scattered; and I will be hallowed in you before the Gentiles. Then you shall know that I am the Lord when I bring you into the land of Israel, into the country for which I lifted My hand in an oath to give to your fathers.”
Isaiah 11:11-12 “It shall come to pass in that day that the Lord shall set His hand a second time to recover the remnant of His people who are left...He will set up a banner for the nations, and will assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.”
There’s so much more to this story. If you want to look it up yourselves, you will see that the state of Palestine never existed. There are no real Palestinians from Palestine. These people are Arabs of numerous origins. There is no legitimate legal claim of the Palestinians to any territory within the borders of Israel. The borders of Israel will expand, not contract, by huge amounts in the near future. Do you think there’s a bit of controversy there? Go and look it all up – you will be shocked, and then excitied!
Genesis 17:7-8 “I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant to be God to you and your descendants after you. Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession, and I will be their God.”
Judges 2:1 “...I will never break My covenant with you.”
1Chronicles 16:17-18 “The covenant which God made with Abraham and his son Isaac and confirmed to Jacob as a statute, to Israel for an everlasting covenant, saying, to you I will give the land of Canaan as the allotment of your inheritance.”
So why do Muslims believe and act on the Quran’s command to kill the infidels, to kill dogs and yet they disbelieve its word on the ownership of Israel? You tell me! They will tell you that the later surahs and fatwas supersede the earlier ones, but nonetheless here we have it.
Wait! There’s more:
So now we see what our Bible has to say about God’s covenant promises to the Jews. But the Bible spells out just how it will take place as well. It speaks of the massive world-wide opposition in numerous verses, but also, much to the disgust of the mass-media, the mass-church, the masses of stupid politicians and all the world’s intellectuals, the Bible shows just how Israel will prosper while its Arab neighbours suffer.
Joel 3:18-20 “It shall come to pass in that day that the mountains shall drip with new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and the brooks of Judah shall be flooded with water...Egypt shall be a desolation and Edom a desolate wilderness because of violence (Lit-Chamac, Hamas in English) against the people of Judah, for they have shed innocent blood in their land. But Judah shall abide forever and Jerusalem from generation to generation.”
Obadiah 1:10 “For violence (Lit-Chamac, Hamas in English) against your brother Jacob (Israel) shame shall cover you and you shall be cut off forever.”
Isaiah 35:1-2 “The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them (Jews), and the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose; it shall blossom abundantly and rejoice...”
Ezekiel 36:35 “They will say, ‘This land that was desolate has become like the garden of Eden.”
Amos 9:13 “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him who sows seed; the mountains shall drip with sweet wine.”
And yes, there’s much more, but enough for now. You get the picture.
So, now we have an astonishing thing! The Quran and the Bible say exactly the same thing about the ownership of Israel. I wonder why CNN, BBC, SKY, NBC and the host of others dance to their own demonic tunes?
Imagine being so dumb, stupid, naive, blind, ignorant, and deceived as to think you know better than God! Let me tell you something CNN, BBC, SKY and others of the mass media – you are preparing the biggest killing fields in history.
Your boss, Adolf, would be very proud of you!
Here are two Hitler quotes that are so applicable to the modern media:
“If you tell a big enough lie, and tell it often enough, it will be believed.”
“How fortunate it is for leaders that the masses do not think.”
Appeasement and peace-making with Islam has never and never will work. The Bible tells me so!
Right now we see sympathy for the Jews because of the Paris attacks. It won’t last. The Bible predicts the exact opposite. Very soon the nations of the world will turn against Israel with a vengeance.
It was born in a day, just as the Bible said it would be (Isaiah 66:8).The pure language of Hebrew would be restored (Zephaniah 3:9). The Jews will return from the four corners of the world, first in their blindness. (Isaiah 11:11, Jeremiah 31:7-8). Jerusalem shall be restored to the Jews (Luke 21:24) All nations will come against Jerusalem to divide it. (Zechariah 12:2). Israel will be divided causing massive war (Joel 3:2). Israel will ultimately be invincible (Zechariah 12:6-9). The Jews will recognise their Messiah on their return to the land (Romans 11:25-26 and many others.)
As we look into the history of Israel and the Jewish people we see the supernatural hand of God at work. Do you think that’s suddenly going to stop now? Never – it is about to become even more miraculous, but with great trouble on the way, just as the Bible predicts.
The fall of Israel:
Exodus 34:11-14 “Observe what I command you this day. Behold I am driving out from before you the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite. Take heed to yourself, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you are going, lest it be a snare in your midst. You shall destroy their altars, break their sacred pillars and cut down their wooden images, for you shall worship no other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous is a jealous God.”
The people mentioned in the verse above are all the descendants and originators of the Arab peoples and through them the ‘Palestinians’ today. Do you see that section of the verse in “bold”? Look at it again. Netanyahu – go and look at the verse! Israel, do NOT make a covenant with them.
Exodus 23:32-33 “You shall make no covenant with them, nor with their gods. They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against Me. For if you serve their gods, it will surely be a snare to you.”
Unfortunately we know that Israel will make a deadly peace covenant of sorts with them. This will open the gates of tribulation, death and destruction on a massive scale.
This is where I believe the rapture takes place, just before the tribulation period begins. According to my calculations based on the scriptures, 4.5 billion people will die in the seven-year tribulation.
Micah 7:8-9 “Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; when I fall I will arise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord will be a light to me. I will bear the indignation of the Lord, because I have sinned against Him, until He pleads my case and executes justice for me; He will bring me forth to the light, and I will see His righteousness.”
Amos 9:15 “I will plant them in their land, and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord your God.”
Israel will soon fall hard, but she will arise – it’s coming soon.
Anti-Semitism will die:
Being on the losing side is such a failure. It’s fine to mess up, and fail and then get up, change direction and go the winning way. It’s not fine to fail and stay a miserable failure on the wrong course until you arrive in hell.
Today we are seeing a massive rise in anti-Semitism worldwide, but especially in Europe. You would think that Europe would have learnt from its past! No such luck! Europeans used to call Africa the “dark continent.” What an amazing turn of events. Europe today is more spiritually dark than the dark side of the moon!
With their dark demonic influences has come this new anti-Semitism and appeasement of the Muslims. We have not seen anything yet – it’s just starting up!
Of course it will backfire on them. It will simply chase the Jews back home, which the Bible predicts anyway. Europe, did you know you are helping God’s work?
Obviously it’s not just Europe. When the heat is really on it will be the whole world. Right now it’s Europe and the Muslim nations leading the anti-Semitism charge.
Do you want to see the futility of anti-Semitism? Let me show you the end of them:
Isaiah 60:14-15 “The sons of those who afflicted you shall come bowing to you, and those who despise you shall fall prostrate at your feet; and they shall call you the City of the Lord, Zion of the Holy One of Israel. Whereas you (Jews) have been forsaken and hated, I will make you an eternal excellence, a joy of many generations.”
Jeremiah 30:16-17 “All those who devour you shall be devoured; and all your adversaries, every one of them, shall go into captivity; those who plunder you shall become plunder, and all those who prey upon you, I will make a prey. For I will restore health to you and heal your wounds, says the Lord, because they called you an outcast.”
There are many more similar verses, but I hope, just from these two, you can see who the winning side is and who the big eternal losers are. Do you see the miserable end of anti-Semites here?
Why pray for peace of Jerusalem:
Psalm 122:6 “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May they prosper who love you.”
When we pray for the peace of Jerusalem we are praying for the return of our Lord and Saviour. The only way peace will come to Jerusalem is when the Prince of Peace walks in! So, in fact we are praying for all the events leading up to this to transpire quickly.
You can’t separate Jerusalem from Israel. The two are inextricably linked forever. All the covenants and blessing to Israel in the Bible obviously include Jerusalem even if it is not mentioned.
Genesis 12:3 “I will bless those who bless you (Israel) and I will curse those who curse you.”
Praying for the peace of Jerusalem is a critical prayer. It involves blessings and curses.
Psalm 132:13-18 “The Lord has chosen Zion; He has chosen it for His habitation: This is My resting place forever; Here I will dwell for I have desired it. I will abundantly bless her provision; I will satisfy her poor with bread. I will also clothe her priests with salvation...His enemies I will clothe with shame, but upon Himself, His crown shall flourish.”
Finally, praying for the peace of Jerusalem is not praying for a city. It is praying for the salvation of the people of Jerusalem – the Jews.
Why does the majority of the church sit back and have little or nothing to do with Israel especially in these days? It is because they are thieves. They have stolen all of God’s grace for themselves, thinking that they are the beginning and end of everything! They think that God has no real purpose for the Jews now or into the future.
Open your eyes church, there is so much more to the kingdom of God than your little institution.
The amazing, incredible, tragic, wonderful conclusion:
“Hell has opened her arms to receive you at your coming”, says the Bible. “Multitudes, multidudes in the valley of decision”, says the Bible. “I will open the spiritual eyes of the Jews, I will save you and you will be a blessing” says the Bible.
These are all critical issues – don’t underestimate them and don’t underestimate your own personal propensity to fall under the strong delusions and deceptions around today. You must use God’s provided weapons of spiritual warfare and you must know your Bible – led by the Spirit.
Zechariah 8:13 “It shall come to pass that just as you were a curse among the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you and you shall be a blessing.”
The Eye, the ear, the voice, the hand, and the sleeve:
Zechariah 2:8 “Thus says the Lord of hosts: He has sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you, for he who touches you (Jerusalem) touches the apple of His eye.”
Isaiah 55:3 Incline your ear, and come to Me. Hear and you shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you.”
Deuteronomy 4:30 “When you are in tribulation and all these things come upon you in the latter days, when you turn to the Lord your God and obey His voice, He will not forsake you, nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them.”
Isaiah 49:16 “See I have inscribed you (Zion) on the palms of My hands; your walls are continually before Me.”
Zechariah 12:10 “And I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me who they have pierced; they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son.”
Zechariah 8:23 “For thus says the Lord of hosts: “In those days ten men from every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, “Let us go with you for we have heard that God is with you.”
Today you can give yourself to the wisdom of the beast – the mass media (all of them) or to the wisdom of the living God. I tell you now, the words of the media are not just words; they are charged with the spirit of death and Satan himself.
In utter humility and with tears in my eyes, I say what a wonder it is to be on God’s side – the ultimate winning side.
O how I love my Lord and His word of truth and wisdom.
More and more, the mass- media is becoming the clear mouthpiece of Satan. They are Satan’s banner for the nations. You need to know these things.
But God has set up a banner for the nations. His banner is the opposite! His banner is everywhere the word of God is. It will prevail.
By the way, the reading of just these verses in this edition completely destroys the deadly deception of Replacement Theology.
I did this painting using various mixed media effects, blending abstract and organic themes together. I’ve used thin pieces of coloured glass in some areas.
I took this picture in a local game reserve close to my home. This is a White Rhino which is highly endangered but a little less so than the Black Rhino. It has a distinguishing big square lip and is quite docile compared to the aggressive Black Rhino. The horn is valued at $67,000 per kg. (More than gold). At the current rate of decline these magnificent animals will be extinct within a few years.
Shalom and grow in grace!
