- ”America has finally decided the Bible is not illegal!” (Jerusalem Post) The US, in a historic move has declared that it will not use the term “settlements” anymore, legalising and legitimising Jewish control over Judea and Samaria.
- Ironically, the UN passed a resolution yesterday with 154 nations voting in favour of the Temple Mount falling under full Muslim control, rejecting Israel’s ownership.
- Israel attacks numerous Syrian targets near Damascus in response to Syria / Iran rocket attacks on Israel - all shot down by Israel's Iron Dome (20th Nov.) Israel says will now respond to every attack. "Its a new day."
- Iran continues to break all rules in pursuit of nuclear weapons. Very soon, someone (US and Israel) will bring her to book!
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
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 246. February 11th 2015
Startling facts about Israel’s new enemies:
Startling facts about Israel’s new enemies:
Where did the idea and plans for the Holocaust come from? You may be shocked to know that it was the Palestinians. Read on my friends.
Just like the title image, Israel today is staring at her assassins! They are out to kill her. It’s not just about land, property and religion. There’s a satanic, eternal hatred in many for Israel and the Jews.
Ezekiel 35:5 “Because you have an eternal hatred, and have shed the blood of the children of Israel by the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, when their iniquity came to an end, therefore as I live says the Lord God, ‘I will prepare you for blood and blood shall pursue you.’”
The above verse is addressed to the people of Jordan who amongst others became the Palestinian people. And note the time frame involved! It is when Israel is starting to see who her Messiah is, which is right now.
And here is another:
Ezekiel 25:15-16 “Because the Philistines (modern day Palestinians) dealt vengefully and took vengeance with a spiteful heart to destroy, because of the ancient hatred, therefore thus says the Lord, ‘I will stretch out My hand against the Philistines. I will execute great vengeance on them.’”
But world, be aware of this: Your eternal hatred is firstly for God and His choice and you are getting deeper into the eternal mire every day!
World, do you know that God does not care if He offends you. He laughs at your stupidity! After all: He has given you His word and plan and you ignore it! He will laugh at you while pouring His wrath out on you!
Psalm 2:1-6 “Why do the nations rage and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth and rulers take counsel together and set themselves against the Lord...He who sits in the heavens shall laugh...He shall speak to them in His wrath and distress them in His deep displeasure. Yet I have set My King on My holy hill of Zion.”
It is very wise to get on and stay on God’s side!
Matthew 12:30 “He who is not with Me is against Me...”
The Grand Mufti to the Imam Mahdi:
Consider the Second World War (WW11). Initially it was really not about killing Jews. It was about the advance of Germany and world domination. So how did the mass - murder of six million Jews become the central factor and issue of the war? Very few people are aware of the Islamic Arab influence and their direct role in the war.
The plan to eliminate the Jews did not come from Hitler. It came from the Palestinians! You may be surprised at such a statement. If you are it shows how much of a puppet of the mass media you are.
The Grand Mufti, Hajj Amin Al Husseini Is the recognised father of the Palestinian movement. He was a friend of the Nazis and Hitler himself. It was Husseini who sat down one day with Hitler and whispered to him about a grand new “final solution”. At that time Hitler had no plans for a Holocaust. He wanted to deport the Jews, but not kill all of them. It was Husseini who planted the idea of the Holocaust in Hitler’s head. According to Nazi minutes of the meeting: Hitler made the following statement after meeting with Husseni:
“The Fuhrer would give the Arab world the assurance that its hour of liberation had arrived. Germany’s objective would now become the sole destruction of the Jewish element residing in the Arab sphere under the protection of the British.”
The images below are of Husseni and some of meetings with the Nazis.
Husseini became a close partner, colleague and friend of Adolf Eichmann as well as Hitler. At the Nuremberg War Crime Trials evidence proved how deeply Husseini was involved in the extermination of the European Jews. He considered this a “comfortable solution to the Palestine problem.” He constantly pushed the Nazi leadership to accelerate the extermination.
Husseini also had much to do with influencing Arafat and even Abbas in his younger days.
We know well that it was not Husseini whispering in Hitler’s ear, it was Satan himself. How do we know that? I put it to you that almost the whole world has no idea that they are listening to the whispers of Satan right now.
Far too many people are children of a disguised, camouflaged, whispering god named Satan. They are deaf to the word of the living God clearly before them but alive to the word of the world.
So, what’s the point of this? It is simply because nothing has changed! The same old devil is whispering in the ears of his servants the mass-media and their puppets and slaves.
Today the Islamic Palestinians have the same goal. Their allies are not Nazi Germany, but all of Europe and in fact the world, of which Satan is its god.
Can we blame the Palestinians for the Holocaust? No, they didn’t do it, the Nazis did. But the founder of the Palestinian movements did implant the idea in Hitler’s head, simply because he and the Palestinians wanted to destroy the Jews.
Have they changed? Do the Palestinians want to live in peace with the Jews? I tell you their eternal hatred is still there, and hasn’t changed one bit. The Palestinians have never repented for one single outrage against the Jews.
The Palestinians have never repented for their eternal hatred.
I’ve used these quotes many times before and will again, because they are so powerful. These are Hitler quotes. They related perfectly to the mass media of today:
●“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.”
●“A real leader is one who can move the masses.”
●“The victor will never be asked if he told the truth.”
In numerous previous editions I’ve spoken of the signing of the fateful covenant between Israel and the antichrist, which starts the tribulation period. I’ve spoken at length about the evils of dividing the land of Israel, the city of Jerusalem and all things related to the world’s two-state solution.
I’ve used the regular verses like Joel 3:2 and others, but now have a look at these little known verses below:
Numbers 33:50-55 “Now the Lord spoke to Moses in the plain of Moab by the Jordan, across from Jericho, saying, ‘Speak to the children of Israel saying; when you have crossed the Jordan into the land of Canaan, then you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, destroy all their engraved stones...and high places. You shall divide the land by lot as an inheritance among your families ...But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then it shall be that those who you let remain shall be irritants in your eyes and thorns in your sides and they shall harass you in the land where you dwell.”
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.”
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.”
These verses are shocking! You see, the world wants peace in the Middle East. The world thinks that dividing the land and making peace covenants will bring peace. No sir, not at all! Here is the way to peace:
Isaiah 54:10 “...My kindness shall not depart from you, nor shall My covenant of peace be removed, says the Lord who has mercy on you.”
The coming Iman Mahdi could most probably be the antichrist. He fits the bill on every front. He will most probably be the one to sign the fateful peace covenant of Daniel 9:27.
P.S. Abbas has claimed in an old 1984 book that received no recognition, that Hitler and Ben-Gurion were “good friends”. He quoted from Holocaust deniers. This was a futile attempt to link Nazism to Zionism. He is trying to promote the book again.
The origin of the Palestinians:
There is much on this subject – too much to deal with here. It’s well worth looking it up.
Essentially there is no, and never was, a State of Palestine with indigenous Palestinian people who had later been displaced by Israel. The Palestinian people originated in many nations including Egypt, Jordan and some Mediterranean countries. But they are all Arabs.
The world and its god, Satan, created the cohesive nationalist group called the Palestinians. The world and its mouthpiece the media then said they needed a state and a capital city. The world’s god Satan planned the two - state solution as a step to the Islamic take-over of all of Israel.
Israel too has a God who has planned and spoken His plan by eternal covenant in His word. This is exactly why Satan wants to mess this up. The further we go down the road, the nearer we get to the demise of Satan.
Imagine one day arriving in hell as all those of the world will, and discovering that they were following perfectly the will and plan of Satan and they now have no way of redeeming themselves. Imagine arriving in hell and discovering that the true God of Israel had planned, written and presented His plans right in their face, and again you now have no way of redeeming yourself ever.
Who are Israel’s modern enemies?
The main enemy is of course Satan himself. But he has chosen many of his servants to work through. It is very helpful when looking at these enemies to understand that they are themselves victims of the greater enemy.
It goes without saying that the Palestinians are the main enemies. They have chosen for themselves what God has chosen for the Jews and have chosen to ignore God’s warnings.
The great majority of Bible verses speaking of Israel’s enemies in the end-time scenario refer in some way to the Arab / Palestinians.
The nations of the world have also become Israel’s enemies and God’s enemies by default.
The world created the Palestinian people and then decided that they must have part of Israel as their homeland, which we all know is just a step towards total conquest of all of Israel including Jerusalem.
Now the world attacks Israel for not lying down and playing dead to the commands of the god of this world. Israel cries – “Anti-Semitism” and rightly so, as the world attacks them left, right and centre. The world attacks Israel for standing in the way of their own demise. Then the world wonders why Israel defends itself! World – you really have fried brains!
The nations of the world don’t want Israel for themselves. They want Israel for the Palestinians. Unfortunately much of the church, especially those adhering to replacement theology, are enemies of God and His plans for Israel.
During the Holocaust many churches were participants by their indifference in this oldest, ancient hatred. Today it is increasing at an alarming rate. Many churches today have a secret anti-Semitic heart, which will manifest when the pressure is on!
Know this – the whole world will be brought into this massive soon - coming conflict. It will be a fire-filled war like never before.
Nahum 1:6 “Who can stand before His indignation and who can endure the fierceness of His anger? His fury will be poured out like fire.”
Isaiah 34:2 “For the indignation of the Lord is against all nations, and His fury against their armies; He has utterly destroyed them and given them over to slaughter.”
The advance of the devil:
If we as believers in Messiah get out of fellowship with Him and begin to backslide, it is a journey. And it ends in a far worse state than when it started – always. Spiritual forces come into play and lead you further and further away, making the return that much harder.
The same is true for this whole world on a grand scale. It is moving further and further away from the mostly godly value system it once had. As the light of spirituality goes dim so the darkness of the devil advances.
Blind Christians who are nothing more than puppets of the world love to have it so, and their useless preachers even prepare and encourage them to be mixed in with the world.
We end up in situations where almost everything founded in the Bible is ridiculed, rejected, scorned and replaced with the word of the devil.
The word of the devil and his plans come disguised. It’s not long before all that is ungodly becomes the accepted norm of the world. The deadly advance becomes “good” and “right” because the mass media – Satan’s mouthpiece - proclaims it so.
Today we are seeing this on many fronts, but it’s a terrible situation as far as Islam goes.
Today the mass media is brainwashing the world. They together with the world’s political leaders are pushing hard to distinguish between radical Islam and nominal peace-loving Islam. The result is that the whole world thinks it’s only the radical extremists that are the problem. Today the whole world thinks that there are Muslims who will tolerate living in peace with Jews and Christians.
Take the time to have a look at this excellent video clip:
“The Three Stages of Jihad” is an excellent short teaching and can be found HERE.
Now after watching that, you can see just what is going on!
By the way a few days ago Obama told Christians not to name radical Islam as the enemy!!
When Muslims are outnumbered they must preach tolerance and peace. But their true intentions are concealed. You see, as I’ve said many times, the heart of Islam is peace, but it is peace by having no opposition to themselves. They believe peace is Islamic domination and control!
The Quran itself says that Allah is the greatest of all deceivers! (Sura 19:37, 8:30)
Some of the names for Allah in the Quran include: “The most proud”, “The destroyer,” and similar.
The origin of the hatred:
You may be surprised to know that the origin of the hatred against Israel and the Jews is the same within the church and the world. It is only the true, Spirit led Church that is free from this hatred and in fact loves God’s word for the Jews.
Enmity for Israel and in fact the roots of the Holocaust and coming Holocausts began with three words uttered in the Garden of Eden. After God had said to Adam that he could not eat of the fruit of every tree in the garden, Satan said to Adam, “has God said...?”
This is the tragic great lie and deception motivating every unbeliever on the earth! It is the lie behind all anti-Semitism.
God has a clear distinct plan for Israel in these days. The modern media-fuelled world can’t handle or tolerate the fact that God would dare to choose without consulting them. God’s choice runs contrary to their god – democracy.
Democracy without salt is doomed. The salt of the earth adds flavour, preservation and judgement.
It’s all about the world thinking that they have a better idea than God...a better plan. Shakespeare himself is a blithering, brainless idiot compared to God - the playwright and conductor of the greatest most glorious drama of all time.
Obama, Cameron, the EU, and the entire world’s top think-tank intellectuals and leaders, are all brainless compared to the glory of our Lord and His masterful plans.
Why do the nations want to see the demise of Israel? It’s simply because they have a satanically inspired eternal hatred for Israel, because Israel has God’s choice, hand and love upon her.
Why do most of the nations of the world hate Israel and placate and appease the Palestinians? It’s the same reason!
Do not give yourself to the mass media. They are masters of daggers, smoke, mirrors and pure manipulation. The mass-media will lead you to hell.

An earth-shattering probability:
Israel is going to be brought to the Lord the hard way. She is going to be humbled. Only then will Israel repent en-mass. Of course we know that Israel will ultimately survive and be the blessing she was called to be. But war will bring a new Holocaust to Israel.
I hate writing those words, but I must. Israel, please know and understand that on a personal level, I love you and stand with you.
The Holocaust of WW11 saw about two thirds of the Jews die. We know that the war ended with nuclear fire.
Now we come to the final Holocaust. The word Holocaust comes from the word “Holokaustum” and means “Great sacrifice by fire.”
Zechariah 13:8-9 “It shall come to pass in all the land (Israel) says the Lord that two thirds of it shall be cut off and die, but one third shall be left in it. I will bring one third through the fire, I will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name and I answer them. I will say, ‘This is My people’, and each one will say, ‘The Lord is My God.’”
Do you see the terrible situation here? This prophecy lies ahead in the near future. Again two thirds of the people of Israel will die and they will die of some sort of fire. It may be nuclear as hinted at in the verse below.
Zechariah 14:12 “This is the plague with which the Lord will strike all people who fought against Jerusalem. Their flesh will dissolve while they stand on their feet, their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets and their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths.”
Amos 4:11-12 “I overthrew some of you as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and you were like a firebrand plucked from the burning, yet you have not returned to Me says the Lord. Therefore, thus will I do to you, O Israel, and because I will do this to you, prepare to meet your God, O Israel.”
This is a story of horror and great glory. If only the Jews would repent now, they would avoid the horror side of the equation.
It can be demonstrated from the scriptures that in times past God has always prevented Israel from being destroyed. Many times Israel came under extreme pressure and looked as though she was going to be defeated but ended up the victor.
The War of Independence in 1948 was very interesting. One day after Israel’s miraculous birth as a nation, she was attacked by six Arab forces, all with advanced weapons of the day. Israel had a small civilian, rag-tag army with very basic weaponry YET Israel destroyed the invading armies.
The six wars after this were all very interesting. Israel suffered some losses, but she won them all.
There are numerous stories of something odd, something supernatural, happening in these wars. God Himself had His hand on Israel.
At the War of Independence in 1948 Israel had very basic simple weapons. In all the other wars the tables had turned and Israel was left with superior weaponry, while many of the invaders had less sophisticated weapons.
In all the Palestinian uprisings internally, they had unsophisticated weapons while Israel had top of the range weaponry and God on her side.
My point is simply that you can’t defeat God and His plan and choice! It’s very stupid to try!
The Holocaust was not a defeat for Israel; it was a victory albeit painful. Look at Israel today! Does that look like a defeated nation?
I created the image below to illustrate ancient weapons and modern sophisticated weapons. Slings, stones, swords, bows, arrows, super jets and atom bombs are all aimed at God’s plans for Israel. They will be defeated and crushed. Only those on God’s side will achieve their purpose.
The grand summary:
As Satan working through the leader of the Palestinians, whispered in Hitler’s ear the “final solution”, so Satan working in his servants the mass - media and political leaders of most of the world, is whispering a new “final solution” in their ears.
This new “final solution” will indeed be the final solution, in which the world will be destroyed and Israel will survive and thrive.
Coming persecution for those who stand with Israel:
A dear brother in Messiah, Wayne Hilsden, the senior pastor of the Kings of Kings Messianic Community in Jerusalem has just founded the Fellowship of Israel Related Ministries (FIRM). Pastor Jack Hayford, speaking at the three-day launch a few days ago, said that Christians who stand with Israel in the coming days will be persecuted.
You can find more on FIRM HERE
My question to you is, will you stand with and for our Lord’s plans for Israel? There is coming a time not far from now, where it will be a costly decision! The Bible predicts that a great many will become betrayers!
The plan of our Lord for you:
The material I’ve presented to you in this edition is shocking and full of gravity. It is deadly serious stuff – eternally so! My aim is not to scare. It is simply to present to you the earth shattering truth! You take it or leave it.
In all of these things God’s will and plan will come to pass fully and completely.
Apart from it being wise, lining up with our Lord and His word, it is deeply satisfying and comforting. It draws Him near to you and you near to Him. What a wonderful life, to be God’s family and friend!
Exodus 33:13-14 “I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know you, and that I may find grace in Your sight. And consider that this nation is your people. And He said, ‘My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.’”
Isaiah 40:1-2 “Comfort, yes comfort My people says your God. Speak comfort to Jerusalem and cry out to her that her warfare has ended, that her iniquity is pardoned; for she has received from the Lord double for all her sins.”
