►Regular readers of The Prophetic Scroll are hereby informed that this Covid19 virus will not come near you. I and my prayer team are praying this as a specific prayer of protection over you.
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
This verse, below was given to me by our Lord in December last year to give to you as the crowning verse for 2020. This was just before the corona-virus became a world pandemic:
The heading is, “Babylon humiliated.” End-time Babylon is the modern world system:
Isaiah 47:10-11 “You have trusted in your wickedness. You have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you; You have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one besides me.’ Therefore evil shall come upon you and you shall not know from where it arises, and trouble shall fall upon you. You will not be able to put it off, and desolation shall come upon you suddenly.”
Proverbs 24:21 (Amp) “My son, reverently fear the Lord and king, and do not associate with those given to changing allegiances and revolution.”
Proverbs 28:28 (Amp) “When the wicked arise, men hide themselves; but when they perish, the constantly righteous increase and become many.”
Proverbs 28:2 (Amp) “When a land transgresses, it has many rulers; but when the ruler is a man of discernment, understanding and knowledge, its stability will last long.”
Psalm 9:17 (Amp) “The wicked shall be turned back into premature death, into Sheol (hell), even all the nations that forget God.”
Psalm 120:7 “I am for peace, but when I speak, they are for war.”
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose of this report is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah.
5th June 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Why and when God judges:
But first: What’s happening now is the attempted overthrow of God, His authority structures and the creation of the new world order system of false gods, idols, icons and release of hosts of demons.
The world is redefining God and His word to their standards and values, but it is the standards and values of Satan, their unseen god.
Here is a profound verse which I am applying to the current riots and upheavals:
Isaiah 59:6-8 (Separated from God) “...Their works are works of iniquity, and violence is in their hands. Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood. Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they have not known, and there is no justice in their ways. They have made themselves crooked paths; whoever takes that way shall not know peace.”
I have spoken a lot lately about where we are on the prophetic clock and what is happening now and why. I’ve used the analogy of the forerunners of the four runners of the apocalypse. We are not in the tribulation period yet, but in the time of birth-pangs and forerunners.
The big judgements upon the world of the tribulation period are seen in the events brought onto the stage by the four riders of the apocalypse.
But now I would like to look into the reasons for the big judgements of the tribulation, which are obviously the same reasons for the troubles being brought on now in the form of forerunners.
Big historic judgements of God:
The big judgements from God in the Old Covenant were for these reasons:
●Molech the evil god of child sacrifice: This god was worshipped by the offering of infants, including those from abortions as a sacrifice in fires under his outstretched bronze hands. This occurred in the Valley of the son of Hinnom, (Gehenna). The place became known as cursed for these murders. Today it is still believed to be cursed. (Jeremiah 32:34-35, 2 Kings 23:10) Gehenna is identified with Armageddon.
●Noah: The world then was destroyed by flood for rampant sin, including homosexuality, complacency in the face of predicted judgement, and mocking of judgement to come.
●Sodom & Gomorra: These cities were destroyed by fire for persistent, aggressive homosexuality and refusal to repent.
●Babylon & Babel: Babylon and the tower of Babel were destroyed by God for rampant sin, humanistic unity, false religion, and trying to reach God and be like Him, – man’s way. “Babylon was never to rise again.” (Jeremiah 51:64, Isaiah 13:20) But end-time Babylon is here again, as revealed in many verses. It is NOT the original city. It is now the end-time world system. End-time Babylon has its religion Catholicism and similar orthodox beliefs. The true church is commanded to “flee from Babylon.” (Jeremiah 51: 6-9, and Revelation 17&18)
●Jericho: Was destroyed for rampant sin, and for obstructing the children of Israel on their journey to the Promised Land.
Here are the reasons collectively: ●Rampant unrepentant sin and wickedness. ● Homosexuality which today includes the redefining of God’s institution of marriage and family. ●Abortion. ●Complacency in the face of coming judgement. ●Mocking God’s ways and coming judgement. ●Humanism which includes the philosophy of “I am,” and there is no other. ●False religion of all sorts. ●Coming against Israel.
Here’s the big question: Do you see these sins in the world today? Do you see the world repenting of these things?
Let’s be clear on one thing. The world will not repent, because that’s what the Bible shows. But many individuals in the world will and are repenting even now.
Do you see how difficult it is for the world to repent? These sins have become so normalised and entrenched in modern society that they have become a human right! And even some deceived churches are supporting these judgment-bringing sins!
The gradual normalisation of sin has been done mainly by the mass-media.
So, the four riders of the apocalypse are ready to ride, for the above reasons. When they do, they will race swiftly onto the stage – suddenly!
Because of unrepentant, continuing and worsening sin, God has blinded the minds of the unbeliever and Satan has blinded their minds to the salvation of God.
Matthew 11:25 “I thank You Father Lord of heaven and earth because you have hidden these things from the wise (in self) and prudent, and have revealed them to babes.”
The sin of obstructing Israel:
►But first: Interestingly the organisation “Black Lives Matter (BLM) contains a foundational document rejecting the right of the Jews to their homeland and other anti-Semitic statements.
●Why did God destroy nations and kingdoms that came against the children of Israel, and those that attacked Jerusalem in the Old Covenant?
●Why did God not destroy the nations that divided Israel and Jerusalem in the days since the cross? (For example Jordan, Turks, Britain).
●Why did God not destroy Germany after the Holocaust?
●Why has God not destroyed the many churches including the Catholic church that formed, promoted and practise replacement theology, which is simply the theology of dividing Israel and Jerusalem?
It is because we are in the church age of grace and the longsuffering of God. (2Peter 3:9, Acts 17:30) This is the era of God overlooking these things. (Read those two verses).
But woe to them all when the age of grace ends and the world returns to the Old Covenant ways of doing things. God’s severe, immediate, demonstrative judgement is the main characteristic of the tribulation.
The main verse used by many against dividing Jerusalem is Joel 3:2. But this occurs in the tribulation period if you read the surrounding context. That is not in the church age, but the next dispensation, the seven year tribulation or closing of the Old Covenant.
If this is the case, which I challenge anyone to dispute, then, the current virus troubles and riots are not because the US divided Israel or Jerusalem, which it did not do anyway.
If you recall, I applied the key of David, which no one can remove, to President Trump for his biblical moves on Jerusalem. (Revelation 3:7, Isaiah 22:22) He still holds that key! The world is trying its damndest to get the key out of his hands!
I have mentioned this many times but it bears repeating. The next big thing on the prophetic agenda is war. It will be war against Israel and in the Middle East, as the war-rider rides out of the starting gates.
►►►Jeremiah 4:19 “O my soul, my soul! I am pained in my very heart. My heart makes a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because you, O my soul, have heard the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war.”
Once the four riders race out of the starting gates, the world will cry for peace, but this is what they will get:
Revelation 6:4 “Another horse, fiery red went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth and that people should kill one another, and there was given to him a great sword.”
Do you see why it’s not a good idea to go to the races?
It is of utmost importance to know what is going on behind the scenes in all these things.
My friends, true deep, glorious peace and rest is only for the true believer, going deep with the things of God!
Edition 272. August 12th 2015
Do you see it, do you hear it?
Do you see it do you hear it?
There are always two conflicting words out there. The word of the living God has been delivered and is always alive now through His Spirit. It’s always available to those who meet the conditions. The word of the god of this world, Satan is also always out there and available, no conditions needed!
Which word do you hear? Who do you see at work in these days of unfolding prophecy?
There’s a reason why people see and hear only one.
The unsaved automatically hear the word of their god and can’t hear the word of the living God.
Believer, try as you may, you can’t know God, see Him, understand Him without certain conditions being met. Oh yes you can know general things about Him, but that deep sustaining revelation only comes to the few!
You can scream the odds against that, but the better thing to do is become one of the few!
First of all let me clear up the one thing that rattles the cages of many. Yes salvation is free, but the salvation of the soul is not!
It is vitally, critically important to know, hear and see the Spirit of God at work today....more so than ever before.
Global deception is here already.
It is impossible for many people to see or hear the things of God in these days because they have been twice blinded.
Isaiah 44:18 "They do not know nor understand, for He (God) has shut their eyes so that they can't see and shut and darkened their hearts so that they can't understand." (The context of this verse relates to false worship and idolatry.)
2 Corinthians 4:3-4 "Our gospel is hidden to them that are lost in whom the god of this world (Satan) has blinded the eyes of them who believe not."
Talk about being blinded! Here we have people whom God has blinded for many reasons. They have also been blinded by Satan from seeing the road to salvation.
Let’s dig a bit deeper:
There are far too many verses dealing with spiritual blindness and the causes to list here. So what I’ve done for you benefit, is list just a few of these verses. For the sake of space, I’m not writing them out. Just hover your mouse over them to see the full verses.
I’ve then compiled one big profound statement extracted from the verses.
Exodus 23:1-2 , Exodus 23:32-33, Job 38:15, Jeremiah 1:16, Jeremiah 2:21, Jeremiah 6:10, Jeremiah 6:17-19, Jeremiah 8:9, 2, Jeremiah 13:15-16, Chronicles 36: 15-16, Zechariah 7:12-13, Romans 1:26-28, Romans 2:8, Isaiah 1:15, Isaiah 28:2, Isaiah 44:18, Isaiah 57:20-21, Isaiah 59:2, Isaiah 59:8.
A most powerful compilation from these verses:
If you forsake God or His word, or His messengers, you will be full of wickedness, sin and evil. If you harden your heart and turn a deaf ear to our Lord, you will become dark and degenerate and God will not hear you. You will become an unrighteous witness. If you embrace idolatry and exchange the truth of God for the lies of the world, both God and Satan will blind your eyes and minds. If you are self-seeking, with no fear of God in you, your future is terror, disaster and destruction. If you are disobedient to the truth, and are lacking in faith and do not endure, you will go down the crooked path with no light, no peace, stumbling along and becoming ensnared by sin and unrighteousness.
I’ve compiled the answer to these problems from other verses:
It is Godly sorrow that leads to repentance. It is the wilful choosing of the fear of the Lord that draws Him to you and opens the eyes of your understanding and comprehension of the scriptures. It is walking in the beauty of holiness that empowers you, giving you endurance. It is being separate from sin and the ways of the world that endears you to our Lord and causes you to be fruitful. It is walking in humility before God that causes His grace to fall on you. Being upright opens to you the secret council of God.
The importance of seeing, knowing and hearing God’s word on Israel:
The entire issue surrounding Israel, Jerusalem and the Jewish people is not only about them. It is about you! You will rise or fall depending on what you see now! The fence of division is rising higher and higher and you will fall one side or the other. You spiritual future depends on what you see now!
Great, powerful spiritual forces are at work and we can’t see them. The entire issue is spiritual first and physical second. Leaders of demon forces – generals so to speak, are at work in the unseen realm.
God has revealed his plans clearly for all to see in His word and made them alive by His Spirit.
We are right on the doorstep of the Middle East exploding:
Do you know how wrong the world is and its church? Do you know how ignorant most people are on this subject?
Just take the following word meaning as an example!
The word ‘Palestinian’ in Hebrew is “Plishtim” which means “Occupier” or “thief”! The name in Greek is the word “Peleshet” and means “migrant invader”.
Neither the original Philistines nor the modern Palestinians were born in the land of Israel.
If you listen to the mass media and their church, you would have thought that Israel is the “occupier” and “thieves of Palestinian land”!
Do you see it? The Bible proclaims the exact opposite!
The two-state solution is another perfect example of a massive delusion, contradicting God to His face! (Joel 3:2).
Goliath of Gath:
Goliath of the city of Gath is believed to be a myth just like Noah and his Ark according to many, or should we say most! Even many Christians see Bible stories like this as allegorical. The story is found in 1 Samuel 17:4-23.
A week ago, a giant gate was unearthed at the recently discovered remnants of the city of Gath, the home of Goliath and numerous other giants of the day. The archaeological discover is important because it goes to proving that the city did exist and it was the home of giants.
The meaning of name Goliath (Gala) is found in Strong’s H1555. It means “splendour”. Some Lexicons list the meaning as “to remove”.
Goliath in his splendour tried to remove David and the children of Israel. We know the story: David picked up five stones (five is the number of grace.) One of those five stones backed by the grace of God brought down the giant.
Gath was a Philistine city. It was a city of giants. Gath comes from the root word “Gat” meaning “winepress”. (Strong’s H1661) ”. This has Armageddon connotations!
1 Chronicles 20:6-8 reveals that another giant of the city of Gath who had 12 fingers and 12 toes defied Israel. Jonathan, the son of Shimea David’s brother killed him.
Goliath and the giants of Gath were Philistines. The name Palestinian is a transliteration of the word Philistinos. The Philistines were undoubtedly Arabs. Today it would be no injustice to align the Philistines with today’s Arab Palestinians.
The Bible also identifies Goliath the fateful number 666. He was six cubits tall, had six pieces of armour and his sword weighed six hundred shekels of silver. In contrast, the believer has seven items of spiritual armour. Seven is the number of perfection.
Muslims believe 666 to be a holy number. In fact there’s much linking the Quran and Allah to 666.
Why is this important now?
The “winepress” has just been discovered! The gate to Gath has risen from the dust. Goliath is arising again, linked with 666 again. The giant of world opinion against diminutive David (Israel) is getting louder and louder, fuelled by Mr. 666.
David will again destroy Goliath in these last days. Israel backed by God’s plan will finally bring down the Palestinians backed by their false god. It’s all about to explode onto the world stage now.
Isaiah 34:5 “For My sword shall be bathed in heaven; indeed it shall come down on Edom, (original home of most Palestinians) and on the people of My curse for judgement.”
The world has learnt nothing from the story of David and Goliath. The world and its church are totally blind to it all even though they are the real “giants” ready to attack again. The “giants” of world opinion, the giant size of the Arab nations surrounding Israel and all the giant enemies of Israel are doomed. It’s always been that way!
David represents Israel, but also our Messiah, while Goliath and the Philistines represent the Palestinians backed by the whole world. Goliath also represents the world in all its proud glory and its blind rebellion to God.
Yes, the stone of David’s sling will again bring down giant opposition to Israel. But another stone will soon bring down all the kingdoms of this world!
Daniel 2:31 speaks of the beauty of Nebuchadnezzar’s giant image / statue. It says it that this great image was full of “splendour”. Do you see the parallels with Goliath?
The image of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream represents the empires of the world through the ages. A stone, just like with Goliath, brings it down. This stone is none other than our Lord at His return!
Nebuchadnezzar’s statue represents the destruction of the world at the Second Advent of our great Jewish Messiah, while Goliath represents the destruction of the Arab world coming against Israel.
David represents Israel today while Nebuchadnezzar’s giant represents the whole word. David’s stone represents the will, word and plan of God, while the stone destroying Nebuchadnezzar’s giant is our Lord and saviour at the Second Advent – no one will escape.
The odds of the unsaved world escaping eternal destruction and judgment are zero. The odds of the Palestinians overthrowing God’s word are zero. But Israel will very soon make its biggest mistake ever, although it will be short-lived.
Tragically, the world backed by its god will soon force or trick Israel to make a fateful covenant with the one who will be revealed as the antichrist in the process!
Look at what God says about making covenants against His will.
Exodus 23:32-33 “You shall make no covenant with them, or with their gods. They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against Me. If you serve their gods, it will surely be a snare to you.”
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 alters, 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.”
God is about to turn up the heat:
This time period is characterised by the final death throes of Satan in his conflict with the living God. It is a time when this great battle, invisible to us, manifests all around us in the world.
It is a time of mass confusion, and mass falling away of believers. It is also a time of great victory for many believers and the mass salvation of Jews and Gentiles.
It is the time of Bible prophecy unfolding and escalating like never before. It is a time of war and destruction as the worldwide call for peace grows stronger. It is the time of stress, desperation and despair in the lives of many.
What if the world is wrong?
What if the word of the world is wrong and God’s word is right?
That little statement has enormous implications for most people in this world today. They have been led astray and made slaves of god of the world and they can’t even see it!
What if the world led by its god Satan is wrong? Many think that there’s safety in numbers. They think that the world must be right, because they have the majority in their camp! What if this assumption is wrong? What if you have been on the wrong road all along and God is right?
What a frightening thought!
As a believer you can chose to hate your life in the world or hate the life God has laid out for you.
If all your life you have believed that 2+2=5 because someone told you so, imagine the shock of discovering that 2+2=4! Although you would feel like an idiot when you actually see it, this is nothing compared to the shock that many will have when they discover that God and His word was absolutely right all along and your entire life’s belief system and journey has been wrong.
You will discover that truth is truth. Everyone will. There is no greater truth than that! It all depends when you discover it. If it is one second after you step into eternity, it is too late. If it is one second before you die and you manage to call on our Lord in repentance, you will be very lucky indeed.
It’s actually quite humiliating discovering that you have been wrong on something that you were very sure you were right about. Most people have thrown their lives away.
►So what are some of the big things the world is wrong about? They are the big things the Bible is clear and strong on. Homosexuality is wrong, condemned and judged in both the Old and New Covenants. Abortion is murder according to the Bible. The abolition of the death penalty is wrong. Failure to physically discipline young children is wrong. Appeasement of the Palestinians is wrong. The Two-State solution is wrong.
The world’s course / agenda is a world of peace, but without sin removed.
To create world unity and peace the world’s way, you must remove judgement, severity, separation, restraint, holiness and the like so that it can all unify with sin, evil, error and all that is of the god of the world.
There are two types of unity. One is unity with God, His word and ways of love, holiness and purity. The other is unity with man and his word and ways of love, sin and evil. One is heaven bound the other is hell bound.
People will always look for the cheap way to God, the easy way with no price to pay. They never find or enter the depths of experience with our Lord and are vulnerable to falling away or backsliding as a result. In these days you need some depth of root.
God’s word contains everything that we need in life. It defines holiness, sin, evil error, truth, and instructions in righteousness. It includes within its pages the victory of all victories, the cross and its power. If you cast down or water down God’s word these are the things that you will battle with.
The world church’s Bible is nearly the same as God’s Bible. It has all the verses on love, unity, peace, forgiveness, tolerance and mercy. But it has all the verses on correction, severity, judgement, discipline and separation removed.
If you change or water down any doctrine of Messiah, what happens is that you will have to remove many other verses or at least ignore them, because so much of God’s word is inter-connected. What will also happen is you will have to add the word of the god of the world in its place!
The world’s word has a powerful unseen but evil authority behind it.
The world church’s Bible enshrines the word of CNN, BBC, Sky, NBC, ABC, Hollywood, entertainers, authors, academics and educated intellectuals, the opinions of housewives sitting around a restaurant table, the opinions of work friends and neighbours. In fact the world’s Bible includes the opinions of everyone outside of true Spirit-led biblical Christianity.
The world church’s Bible has no end-time prophecy in it because it is world-now, focused.
The world church’s Bible allows undisciplined children to rule the roost at home. It tolerates and even encourages Jezebel wives and daughters.
A tragic testimony:
A friend of mine whom I’ve known for many years always appeared to be a strong a believer. After her marriage fell apart, her spiritual life also began to shake. Suddenly, out of the blue, she started questioning even the Bible’s basics.
On the brink of suicide she went to see a secular psychologist. By now she had forsaken much of God’s word and council as she stepped onto a slippery slope. Things went from bad to worse quickly. She then started talking about metaphysics and other practises of spirit strange spirits. Right now she is a total wreck.
Coming great repentance:
For many it will all be too late and for many they will carry on motivated, empowered and led by Satan himself, headlong into conflict with God.
But many people, in fact great masses, will soon turn in repentance to our Lord. What is it that causes people to repent? It is the goodness of God, but it also judgment and shaking of everything once secure.
We don’t know if the goodness of God or the severity of God will cause someone to repent. So what’s the best option? Present both!
Psalm 145:18 “The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth.”
Trying to prove other wrong and yourself right seldom works, but when people see and understand truth, that is what gets them!
I created this picture from one of my originals taken in Botswana, in honour of the rhino, currently on the brink of extinction thanks to the psychopathic hunters and savage poachers. They are being slaughtered at one every eight hours.
Shalom and grow in grace!
