- 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."
- One in four Europeans now hold Anti-Semitic views (new poll 21st Novemeber)

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 250. March 11th 2015
The prophetic future of Iran:
The prophetic future of Iran:
We have heard what Netanyahu has to say about Iran and we know what Obama has to say. But what does God have to say? You may be shocked and amazed!
It is of course more important to know what our Lord says on any issue. Most times, especially on important biblical issues it’s the opposite of what CNN, the mass-media and the world thinks and believes.
Identifying Iran in the Bible:
Many say that Iran is ancient Persia in the Bible. That is true, but the Bible also breaks it down into smaller areas which are within modern day Iran. In fact Iran is a modern name. The nation was always called Persia until 1935.
Elam is within modern day western Iran, in the region of the Persian Gulf.
Jeremiah 49:34-39 “The word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah the prophet against Elam...Behold I will break the bow of Elam, the foremost in their might. Against Elam I will bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and scatter them towards all those winds; there shall be no nations where the outcasts of Elam will not go. For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies, and before those who seek their lives. I will bring disaster upon them, My fierce anger says the Lord; and I will send the sword after them until I have consumed them. I will set My throne in Elam, and will destroy from there, the kings and the princes, says the Lord. It shall come to pass in the latter days.”
The last part of the verse above gives the time frame. It is to occur in the “last days”. All commentators agree that this verse has not yet been fulfilled.
Our Lord says, “He will break the bow of Elam (Iran). “Bow” would refer to weapons of warfare. In modern terms, it could be a missile launcher or the like. “The four winds” could be literal, but are more likely to be a reference to international military forces including air forces. The verse says that the people of Iran will flee to all nations. It is very clear that the Lord’s fierce anger is involved here and the result will be huge destruction, but not the complete destruction of Iran.
Iran your days are numbered!
The above verses relating to Elam may be added to the verses of Ezekiel 38 & 39, which describe what is well known as WW111. Persia (Iran) is the subject of these verses as well, but here we see Iran completely destroyed, while the verses in Jeremiah imply a partial destruction.
Another significant difference between the wars of Jeremiah and Ezekiel is the fact that Israel is the main defender in Ezekiel while Jeremiah does not name Israel.
The ‘Elam’ war verses above may occur before WW111, but may also be part of it...we will have to wait and see.
Elam includes the area where the Iranian nuclear power generator is. This is a highly active seismic spot with numerous earthquakes. The power station has been down more than it has been operating due to many technical and other problems. Any big accident or even attack on the power station would cause a huge Chernobyl-type event
Zechariah 1:14 “The angel spoke with me and said proclaim, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘I am zealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with great zeal. I am exceedingly angry with the nations at ease...”
What’s in a name?
The name Iran comes from the word “Aryan”, the two even sound similar. “Aryan” should be ringing bells.
1935 was the year the Nuremberg race laws in Germany were introduced against the Jews. These laws identified the Jews as an “inferior race” that could never be part of the Aryan race.
The proposal to change the name of the country then called Persia to Iran was in 1935 but didn’t become official until 1939. Now isn’t that incredible? That’s just when World War Two (WW11) was getting underway (1939 – 1945). So, Persia became Iran or ‘Aryan’ just as Hitler was preparing to create an Aryan world by exterminating the Jews.
You may be interested to know that the Swastika is a well used symbol in Iran. It was used by the ancients Aryans 3000 years ago!
You may be very surprised to know what the word ‘Swastika’ means!
Actually, it’s made up of a number of root words, “su,” “asti,” and “ka.” These words mean “good to be.” In other words it means, “To be good.” The word has within its root-meaning the humanistic attempt to be good or have a good future world. It became the symbol of an ongoing world of peace.
The symbol is rooted in the occult, ancient paganism and devil worship.
The Swastika originally represented the revolving sun of Mithra’s wheel. This Aryan symbol occurred first in ancient Persia where it represented infinite, continuing recreation producing a good future. In fact the Swastika even looks like a revolving turning wheel.
Another meaning of the Swastika is “Evolution of the universe.”
Here’s the amazing thing. It represents the Aryan evolution to a perfect world of peace! It represents peace and well-being in revolving, evolutionary transition.
In some pagan beliefs the four arms represent the revolving sun. In others, the four arms represent the four corners of the world and the four stages of life toward perfection.
In ancient Persia among the Aryans, the Swastika also represented the power of “sacred fire” in sun-god worship. Their worship demanded sacrifice by fire to their sun-god, so they could come to ultimate perfection. By the way, the word ‘Holocaust’ comes from the root word ‘Holokaustum’ meaning ‘great sacrifice by fire.’
In Buddhist theology the Swastika represents the harmony and balance of opposites and the coming together of good and evil to produce ultimate world peace.
So now we have a fateful connection between Iran / Aryan / Nazi Germany / the Swastika and our present situation. Can you see how significant this is? Is it all coincidence? I think not!
●The flag of Iran has the words “Allah Akbar” repeated 22 times above the central sword. In Bible numerics the number 22 refers to ‘disintegration’. (22 is also 2x11, with 11 being a key occult number.)
Have you ever wondered why Iran wants to wipe Israel off the map? We know that it’s tied up in the ultimate goal of Islam, but it’s also because Iran has the same visions of grandeur that Hitler had, which was to produce a perfect world and in their eyes the only way that can be done is without Jews.
The various sects of Islam hate each other, but they’re united in their hatred for Israel and the Jew. In fact the source of the hatred is Satan himself.
The signs and what Israel must do:
1 Chronicles 12:32-33 “Of Issachar, men who have understanding (Lit= to have insight) of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, 200 chiefs, and all their kinsmen were under their command. Of Zebulun there were fifty thousand who went out to battle, experts in war with all weapons of war, stouthearted men who could keep ranks.”
The sons of Issachar knew the celestial signs. This applies to the prophetic importance of the lunar cycles and the Feasts of the Lord and would include signs such as the lunar eclipse tetrad, solar eclipses and the like.
Israel’s military machine will be “experts in warfare”, highly disciplined “people who can keep rank”. In other words they will be loyal to God’s covenants and not be influenced by the opinions of the world.
Israel will be brought to our Lord and Messiah soon, but it will be through great catastrophe. The following verses are monumental, tragic, frightening, exciting, and full of gravity and severity:
Isaiah 31:5, 9 “Like birds flying about, so will the Lord of hosts defend Jerusalem. Defending, He will also deliver it; passing over He will preserve it...The Lord’s fire is in Zion and whose furnace is in Jerusalem.”
Isaiah 48:10 “Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction.”
Ezekiel 22:20-21 (Israel in the furnace) “I will gather you into the midst of Jerusalem. As men gather silver, bronze, iron, lead and tin into the midst of a furnace to blow fire on it to melt it, so I will gather you in my anger and in my fury and I will leave you there and melt you.” (The rest of this portion of scripture speaks of the unholy priests and prophets leading Israel into un-holiness like wolves.)
These verses above, and there are many more like them, show the rough road Israel will go down to meet her Messiah. At times it will appear that it’s all over for Israel. But we know the wonderful outcome!
Please don’t believe the many out there who are saying that God will just destroy all Israel’s enemies and bring her smoothly through. Yes that will be the ultimate outcome, but it will involve great tribulation to get there and a second Holocaust.
What Obama, Kerry and his friends are missing is Iran’s repeated statements on wiping Israel off the map. This desire was renewed by Iran only a few days ago. Interestingly the current nuclear negotiations with Iran are about her uranium enrichment desires, but not about her desires to ‘wipe Israel off the map.’ Shouldn’t that be the foremost issue and focus?
That’s like sitting around negotiating on what calibre of gun to give an unrepentant psychopathic mass-murderer.
I notice that Iran has not once been brought to book for these statements. What is really shocking is that Kerry and the European negotiators are trying to strike a deal with a nation whose immediate intentions are out there for everyone to see.
Let me give you a little clue – you can’t make peace with the devil...it will backfire on you!
Iran’s big nuclear lie swallowed by the Muslim liar in the White House:
Iran does not need nuclear power. It has more than enough oil. It needs fuel for its single nuclear generator. It does not need to produce this fuel. All countries with nuclear power, besides the few producers of the fuel, can and do buy their nuclear fuel commercially from any one of a number of suppliers.
So why then does Iran have to create so much controversy over its enrichment program and desires? None of the other countries running peaceful nuclear plants have the same dilemma on the go, not one!
If your intentions are for peaceful nuclear power, what is there to negotiate over?
Iran is a liar. Its intentions are to create weapons grade nuclear fuel. That is what the negotiations have been about – to limit this. And then Kerry, Obama and his brigade of liars tell the world it’s all for peaceful purposes. Those who are discerning would have noted the big slip by Obama when he admitted on the news that Iran was enriching to “dangerous” levels.
Do you want to see it yourself? The relevant section starts at 2.38 minutes in the clip HERE.
In terms of Iran’s intentions here is another shocker:
Iranian Finance Minister says of Netanyahu; “He sees peace as an existential threat.” What a perfect example of what I’ve been saying for many years: Peace in Islamic terms is the absence of resistance to itself and the implementation of Sharia law worldwide! Please remember that. Peace is the absence of resistance to Islam, in their eyes.
The Obama administration has now thrown Israel under the bus and befriended Iran. These giant shifts in allegiance will have drastic, dramatic effects on the US, the Middle East, Israel and the world!
Within the US there are many who will stand with Israel. Do not change that position. The next few months are going to be monumental – be prepared and strengthen your faith and friendship with Israel.
Nukes in the Bible:
“Megaseismos” is the Biblical word meaning “great shaking” It can be used for great earthquake, or volcano, or atom-bomb!
Here are some verses where this could be the case:
Isaiah 29:6 “You (Jerusalem) will be punished by the Lord of hosts with thunder and earthquake and great noise, with storm and tempest and the flame of devouring fire.”
Ezekiel 38:19 “For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath, I have spoken: Surely in that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel.”
Zechariah 14:12 “This shall be the plague with which the Lord will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, and their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths.”
Some nuclear facts: Pakistan created 18 nuclear bombs with 6000 centrifuges. Iran is being allowed to run 6500 centrifuges. According to Kerry and Obama this is not enough to make a nuclear bomb! Someone is lying!
The image below came to me as a real shock. It was taken on the day of Purim (a few days ago) and shows Netanyahu holding a silver megillah, with the scroll of Esther protruding from it. The megillah is the container for the biblical scrolls. But it has a secondary meaning which is why it came to me as a shock at this particular time. There is a tragic message wrapped up here.
For the sake of space and so as not to repeat the whole story, I refer you to edition 147 on this website, where I discuss the entire story of the flying megillahs. It is under the headline “I have found WMD” and you find it HERE.
The biggest lie in the world coming from Iran, the Palestinians, other Arab nations, Obama, Kerry, CNN and others of the mass-media is that they want peace with Israel.
My friends, time is running out. We could be on the doorstep of monumental prophetic events. There is so much on the go now. Wait until you see what is going to be happening in September? I’ll share some of those things with you soon.
I did a few paintings similar to this, mixing and matching the various elements. I think the best description would be, abstract, ethnic, organic.
I took the picture below on the edge of the giant salt pan at Etosha, Namibia.
