|This ministry has a distinct kingdom, Messianic vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for the Jewish people and the church. My position is pre-trib! Personally: I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share these great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God.|

- 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.)

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 269. July 22nd 2015
Not in my name:
Not in my name:
•Breaking: Netanyahu's advice to the Presbyterian church. Click HERE
The true born-again church of the living God is to be the bastion and pillar of truth. It is to know it, love it and defend it.
1 Timothy 3:15 “...The house of God is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth.”
Today this custodianship has been thrown aside, ignored, rejected and watered down by many churches. The Bible says it will be this way in these end days.
The two most important aspects of our lives are our hearts before the Lord, and our biblical doctrine. The two are as important as each other. If one of them is faulty, you will fall hard further down the line.
Today, biblical truth is under attack in a major way from outside and inside the church. The attack has many manifestations, but perhaps the most severe is upon the biblical position of Israel, Jerusalem and the Jewish people and their coming end-time salvation and role in the world.
Of course all the major doctrines of Messiah are under attack, but for this edition, I want to lay out my position and that of The Prophetic Scroll so that there is no ambiguity at all.
The purpose of this edition is to identify and maintain the gulf of separation and division between God’s truth and the dangerous deceptions and errors of these days. The purpose is to highlight this great gulf and to cut, sever, and break relationship with the counterfeit and the error.
I can and do walk happily with many believers of different persuasions. I also associate happily with many unbelievers. There is a line to be drawn though, and this is just what this edition about.
As you will see, great supernaturally inspired evil and error have ramification against Israel and the Jewish people today.
“Not in my name” can also be put this way: I affirm these things, and I reject these things. The person or church that affirms and believes many things and rejects little or nothing will end up rejecting the truth. Mark those words!
I encourage you to look into your own hearts and deeply into God’s word to anchor your own position and separate yourselves from these great dangers, errors and attacks on God’s word.
We are at war:
Economic warfare is war. We are in a largely invisible war. We have been given numerous spiritual weapons of attack and defence. This satanic warfare is aimed against God and His word and ways.
If you are a true Christian you are a target of the devil. Who you are is also seen in whom or what you support and stand with. If you are neutral and don’t really care, you are still in a war. You are just useless in God’s hands – asleep on the battlefield.
Ezekiel 13:3 “Thus says the Lord God: ‘Woe to the foolish prophets, who follow their own spirit and have seen nothing.’”
Zechariah 11:17 “Woe to the worthless shepherd who leaves the flock! A sword shall be upon his arm and against his right eye; His arm shall completely wither, and his right eye shall be totally blind.”
The verse above may have had a literal application, but for us in these days it has a shocking application that is very real indeed. Today many shepherds have left their flock to the wolves. The result is that the shepherds now have no strength left; they are leaving the ministry en-mass! Their spiritual eyes have been blinded by God and they can’t see for themselves, never mind the flock!
Isaiah 30:1“Woe to the rebellious children, says the Lord, who take counsel, but not of Me and who devise plans but not of My Spirit, that they may add sin to sin.”
Today as the Bible is being cast down in the street. (Isaiah 59:14) The result is that sin, which is identified in the Bible is becomes nebulous. There is no more Biblical identification of what sin is if you cast down the Bible. Sin then becomes acceptable and in fact elevated. Sin is then brought into equality with holiness!
Establishing the essence of replacement theology and the BDS movement:
Understand that replacement theology and the BDS movement have their roots in satanically inspired anti-Semitism and Satan himself. Economic warfare, in most cases is the forerunner to all out war.
Replacement theology is the evil theology that claims God has finished with Israel and the Jewish people and has no further plans for them in these end-times. It claims that the church has replaced Israel and the Jews.
It allegorises the scriptures claiming that all verses relating to Israel and the Jews must now be applied to the church and Christians.
It is a viciously anti-Semitic theology originally developed by the so-called church fathers.
The theology is flawed in the extreme and will again be lead to war in Israel.
I’ve said many times that replacement theology leads to replacement reality!
The fact that so many churches now participate in replacement theology against Israel and God is a sickening disgrace.
●Replacement theology...NOT IN MY NAME! I cut and sever all relationship with churches of replacement theology, except for those with a repentant attitude wanting to get out of the trap.
For more on replacement theology and dangers for Israel, created by these churches, see Edition 106 HERE.
The Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement (BDS)
The modern attack on Israel called Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) is a terrible economic attack. It is conducted by almost the entire Islamic world, but a large section of the church is fully on-board.
BDS is economic warfare; it has cost the Israeli government in lost revenue, taxes, and jobs. It is of course also moral warfare. It is extremely dangerous because it leads to bigger things as does its evil twin, replacement theology.
●Please harm the BDS movement by doing the opposite of what they want. Buy and support Israeli products.
One would naturally expect the Muslim world to participate in economic warfare against Israel, but the church? This is more than a sad, great tragedy!
●BDS...NOT IN MY NAME! I cut and sever all ties and relationship with churches supporting BDS, except for those who are repentant and want to get out of this prison.
Which churches support replacement theology and BDS?
Churches that support the attack on Israel through the BDS movement include:
●The World Council of Churches as an entity as well as most of their members.
●The Presbyterian Church. ●The US Methodist Church. ●The United Church of Christ. ●The United Church of Canada. ●The US Quakers. ●The British Quakers. ●The US Mennonite Church. ●The Episcopal Peace Fellowship. ●The Church of England. ●The Lutheran Church.
Many of these churches in other nations besides the US and Europe are also BDS supporters.
Note that all of these churches are non-Spirit filled denominational churches. There are no Spirit-filled churches within the BDS movement that I am aware of, according to BDS published material.
Churches supporting Replacement Theology include:
●The World Council of Churches and most of their member churches.
●The Roman Catholic Church. ●The Church of England (some individual exceptions). ●The Methodist Church. ●The Lutheran Church. ●The Presbyterian Church. ●The Episcopal Church. ●The Greek Orthodox Church. There are numerous other independent churches that are adherents to replacement theology.
Unfortunately some Spirit-filled churches have become deceived and fallen for this error, but they are few in number. The great majority of those into replacement theology are the non-Spirit-filled churches.
The terrible consistency:
Have you noticed the amazing consistencies in those who reject the fullness of the baptism of the Spirit (Cessationists)? They are the biggest group supporting homosexuality and the mass-murder of the unborn. They are the biggest group supporting BDS. They are biggest group practising replacement theology. Yes there are some wonderful exceptions, but not many!
Have you noticed again that there is a consistency among these in that they reject the pre-tribulation rapture? I could go on and list numerous doctrines of the Bible that they consistently reject.
Of course I’m not implying that the Spirit filled churches are without fault, but again, have you noticed that there are many biblical consistencies amongst the majority, especially when it comes to Israel?
Error always has companions. I often say, “Show me your friends and I’ll tell you what sort of person you are.” Looking into this companionship of major biblical error offers great insight.
John 17:17 “Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.”
Zechariah 1:14-17 “Proclaim, saying, ‘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...I am returning to Jerusalem with mercy; My house shall be built in it, says the Lord of hosts...My cities shall again be spread out through prosperity; The Lord will again comfort Zion and will choose Jerusalem.’”
The spineless, surrendered church:
The true church must uphold, teach and support the full gospel in purity and holiness. Spirit inspired and created holiness is words apart from man-made holiness.
Because something is done in the name of Christianity or in their perception of love, does not make it right, or true.
It is inconceivable that a church or denomination can be wrong on so many major biblical issues at once. That speaks of a foul spirit of error at work.
BDS, replacement theology, homosexual rights, abortion, messed up eschatology, casting down God’s word on Israel, worldliness in so many areas and so much more are all the nails in the coffin!
The big question is why does a great part of the church remain silent in the face of BDS and replacement theology?
Silence from those who claim to speak for God, in the face of these attacks, is as bad as the attack itself. Silence by a large part of the church during the Holocaust was a damnable crime committed by the Catholic church and others.
●The word Acquiescence means; “The knowing, but reluctant acceptance of something without opposition or protest”. It is similar to the meaning of the word Appeasement which means; “To make concessions to an enemy. It’s also similar to Placate, which also means; “Make concessions to an enemy.”
Acquiescence is the word to describe the majority of the denominational churches. No wonder so many people are leaving them.
The Presbyterian church of the US voted to “erase Israel” from all prayers some time ago. Never mind that the Bible commands us to pray for Israel and the peace of Jerusalem! Isn’t it interesting that this same church supports BDS, practices replacement theology, appoints lesbians as pastors, supports homosexual marriage and much more that is against the scriptures?
How do they think they will escape hell!
The deadly Inter-faith conglomeration:
Not in my name! The Prophetic Scroll separates itself from and cuts relationship with the inter-faith movement in all its forms.
Inter-faith makes a mockery of the work of the cross and shed blood of our Lord, which makes true Christianity eternally unique. It is no different to the various world attempts to bring peace to the world man’s way. Babel was the prime example. Hitler also tried to bring in a 1000 year rule of peace. Islam is trying to do the same thing.
It is the Jews and God’s call on them that stands in the way of man’s / Satan’s way of bringing peace to the world. The inter-faith movement has to be anti-Semitic and of replacement theology. It must lay aside the cross.
The inter-faith movement is a movement of cross-less apostasy and evil satanic power, getting worse in its manifestations all the time. It is an attempt to bring world peace and unity into being. But without the cross you can’t have true, godly holiness, so it’s a work trying to create a new-world order, but full of sin and Satan. God will destroy all of it at the Second Coming!
The true church of the living God, born out of the death burial and resurrection of our Lord and the sacrifice of the early church disciples was never ever designed to be inter-faith and it never was.
The early church:
Our salvation has been bought with the great price of our Messiah’s crucifixion. But that incredible purchase has been confirmed with the violent deaths, suffering, bloodshed and crucifixion of all but one of the apostles. They were all murdered as old men for their belief and experience as Christians.
The composite image below of the apostles is made up of representations by Rembrandt and one or two other artists. Obviously no one knew what they looked like, so I’m not putting any names to them. I absolutely love these images, especially the large originals. Just looking into their faces and eyes speaks volumes. Thank you apostles for laying such an incredible foundation for us all!
These apostles were the founders of the church. Other disciples came after them and added to the church in the face of incredible opposition, and martyrdom. Ten successive Roman emperors tried to stamp out the early church through the mass murder of disciples and Christians. This had the opposite effect, seeing the church grow stronger and stronger and in great numbers.
Now nearly 2000 years later, a section of the church continues to thrive and grow while a great number are falling away. A great many are becoming God’s enemies, attacking His word, and His people in the name of Christianity.
●A great many churches and their leaders today are disciples of the betrayer Judas! They have chosen Jesus Barabbas, the son of his father.
Not in the name of the original true wonderful Apostles you don’t!
After the apostles came the apostles of deception:
Soon after the Apostles, men who became known as the Church Fathers came along. They were fathers alright, but fathers of anti-Semitism. Without exception (and yes including Augustine), they all tried to change the character of the early church. They removed the Hebraic custom and character of the church. As early as 300 AD Constantine began to infuse the church with Babylonian customs and traditions, to keep the Jews out.
Some of these deceived anti-Semitic so-called church fathers included. Ignatius Bishop, Justin Martyr, Origen, Irenaeus, Tertullian, John Chrysostom, Jerome, Augustine and others. If you look up their views on the Jews you will be shocked!
The Catholic Council of Elivira in 305 AD was the first to prohibit Christians from sharing a meal with Jews, marrying a Jew, blessing a Jew or observing the Jewish Sabbath.
The Catholic Council of Nicea in 325 AD was the first to change Passover to Easter, the Babylonian goddess of sex.
As the dark ages came to an end, the reformers came along. All but the Wesley brothers were vicious anti-Semites, Calvin being the worst. The reformers further entrenched anti-Semitism in the church.
These anti-Semites were all the founders and roots of replacement theology and we could add the BDS movement as well.
What’s in a word?
Very often Hebrew words have a few meanings, but these are normally associated in some way.
In the Bible, the Hebrew word for watchmen is “notzrim”, which is a derivative of the word “natsar” (Strong’s H5341). It means to watch on behalf of, to keep, preserve and guard from danger. This is also the origin of the Hebrew word “Nazareth.” Here’s an amazing thing: This word “notzrim” also just happens to be the same word Hebrew Jews today use for “Christian.”
►►►This speaks of the fact that in these last days, God will have people with some association with Nazareth, the ones who the Jews call Christians, operating as “watchmen” watching out for Israel and the Jews, so that they would be kept safe, preserved and protected. What amazing drama is that!
Are you a notzrim? Or are you a fraud and a counterfeit, a fake and false watchman with eyes blinded by God and seeing just what Satan wants you to see? Are you watching praying for Israel’s protection and safety, or are you working with your father the devil to bring harm, damage and injury to the Jews, like the Christians of replacement theology and BDS?
Notztrim – yes, in my name. Counterfeits – not in my name!
I find it very difficult to even think thoughts of goodness towards the counterfeit shepherds involved in BDS and replacement theology. I love fighting with them. But I suppose I should try to have some sympathy for them because it’s both God and Satan who has blinded their eyes. Their minds have been darkened and their discernment blunted by God and the devil!
John 12:40 “He (God) has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, lest they should see and have understanding.”
2 Thessalonians 2:10 “For this reason (not receive the love of the truth), God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie.”
2 Corinthians 4:4 “The god of this world (Satan) has blinded the minds of those who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Messiah should shine in.”
But now here we see the same problem with the Jews:
Romans 11:8 “God has given them (Jews) a spirit of stupor, eyes that they should not see and ears that they should not hear.”
This was because of their rejection of Yeshua the Messiah. But it doesn’t end there. Here is the spectacular, incredible end-time purpose. As the Jews begin to believe, so the veil of darkness will be lifted.
Romans 11:25 “I do not desire brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that hardening in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. So, all Israel will be saved.”
It is the same for the churches involved with Satan in the BDS movement and replacement theology. They can have their spirit of stupor and blindness lifted and removed, but to qualify, they must repent, reject their garbage, and believe and do the things of God.
I encourage you to be active in God’s war. Use your spiritual weapons and pray against these satanic attacks. Identify yourself with the truth and against these dangerous errors. Make your own personal stand.
