|This ministry has a distinct kingdom vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for Israel and the church. My position is pre-trib! I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share with you the great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God, to bless Israel and her people and the kingdom of God.|
►We have now reached 47 million regular visitors.
►Next Edition, Lord willing: "Meanderings and musings of my mind."
Why the pre-trib rapture is the only view that adds up and works.
- US Democratic Party diplomat calls for Nations with a Christian influence to come against Israel, saying “Jesus Christ came to save the whole world from the Jews...Jews are not chosen!”
- Report: “Obama tried to give the Golan to Syria.” But then came Trump who “gave” the Golan to Israel! And the difference is = The Bible!
- US Dems take followers further and further away from all things related to a nation under God.
- Russia warns Israel: "No more attacks on Syria or we will strike back."
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.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
War drums and trumpets:
Firstly I would like to really thank all those who have recently donated to this ministry. I must say I was amazed at the incredible response from so many. Thank you very much for your blessing to the kingdom of God, above all.
There’s a risk in giving out names that some will feel left out if I don’t name them. So please know that you are all being thanked and will be rewarded. You have encouraged me greatly with your gratitude. You are special! We go on to ever increasing glory!
I give you my assurance that I will continue to give you my best, in spite of wanting to go and live under a tree in the desert sometimes.
Please keep The Prophetic Scroll in your prayer, in that it stays open and unrestricted in these dangerous days. Also keep it as your essential go-to place for what is really happening, and for your deep spiritual growth.
The rumbling war drums:
Drum beats have many classifications. We have blues beat, disco beat, the jazz swing, the motown groove and more. But we also have a particular drum beat of war and battle. The drums of war actually originate from the repeating drum beat of the shaman or witchdoctor.
A certain drum beat would mean either dance or get ready for war. The drum beat would stimulate and strengthen the body and forge a sense of unity by the beat. They would unite the human and the spirit world. The drums of war were also referred to as the drums of death, especially when combined with trumpets.
I said all of that just for this: Can you hear the drums of war rolling? Can you hear the crescendo of drums and trumpets of great conflict echoing through the atmosphere?
This is where we are now. The drums and trumpets are only for those with ears to hear. Others would be wise to listen to those with ears to hear.
The terrible war machine of the nations is warming up to take control of the sleeping nations, who are led by the aged and wrinkled of mind, the pacifists and the true enemies of real liberty and freedom.
Russia is beating the war-drums as she threatens Israel with attack for attacking Iranian targets in Syria. Syria is beating new war drums covered with the ash of long-standing war. Iran is beating the war drum against Israel again, again, again!
Biden and his party are asleep to it all, including the blonde half-baked fairy from hell whose grand burning desire is to change the gender of kids.
It’s not just the US. Europe is worse in many areas.
It seems that insanity has suddenly been let out of the cage and is infecting the world so fast. Here is one of the succinct verses about those who have forsaken the Lord:
Deuteronomy 28:28 “The Lord will strike you with madness and blindness and confusion of mind.”
In the old days we would fight over God’s creative beauty - a girl, and the girls would fight over us – Oh the good ole-days!
The bigger wars are fought over property, religion, political systems and the like. But there is really only one war that is of importance and that is the war to eliminate God’s beautiful creative purpose for Israel. It comes in many guises, but that is the underlying reason. It’s purely spiritual. It is the devil against God, at the end of the day.
So now we sit on the brink of war – the big one! Drums are rolling, trumpets are blowing and madmen from hell are arising, struck with blinding confusion and their weapons of annihilation tucked into their big-bird, metal wings.
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall; Humpty Dumpty had a great fall, because an atom bomb blew him to smithereens. And all the king’s horses and all the king’s men took seven years to clean up the remnants of poor Humpty. What fun!
I can hear the drums of drama but I also hear the trumpet calling me to go and live under a tree in the desert! (Move over lions.)
The great war for God’s son – Israel, is prophesied. (Exodus 4:22-23) It’s all getting pretty hot in here. You need to know these things. You need to know why all things and people of God are targets.
People with no knowledge of the living God are fools, and easy to manipulate and turn into cannon fodder for every dumb gun in town.
You need to be anchored in the truth.
True living is living in truth.
If you try to befriend Satan and appease him, and walk in peace with him, you will automatically, by default, set yourself up as an enemy of God and you will pay the price!
Yes, Israel will miss it again and fall under punishment again, but the most stupid thing you can do is come against Israel in the bigger, overall picture.
Biden prepares to “kill” the Second Amendment right to bear arms in the US. Israel observes and compares this to Haman’s actions to try to destroy the Jews. Biden befriends the enemies of the west and of Israel in Yemen and Iran steps right in!
There was a time when God overlooked the ignorance of stupid, dumb politicians and people, but that day is gone (Acts 17:30, Acts 14:16)
Here’s a verse that should blow a lot more than your socks off:
Esther 9:1-2 “On the day that the enemies of the Jews had hoped to overpower them, the opposite occurred, in that the Jews themselves overpowered those who hated them...No one could withstand them because the fear of them fell upon all people.”
Take note, I say again take note, of the gravity of this verse above!!
The enemies of God and his son Israel, are united under Satan. The political parties, churches, inter-faith organisations and false religions of the world already have an unwritten unity between them – a hell bound unity!
The unity between true born-again believers is a unity based on truth and not lovey-dovey feelings.
As a believer, your culture must change! Your character and your personality must change as you grow in God. If not you will end up going with the flow of the wind.
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!
