Proverbs 24:24-25 “He who says to the wicked, ‘You are righteous,’ him the people will curse; nations will abhor him. But those who rebuke the wicked will have delight, and a good blessing will come upon them.”
Jeremiah 7:23-24 “Obey My voice and I will be your God and you shall be My people, and walk in the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well with you.’ Yet they did not obey nor incline their ear, but walked in the counsels and the imagination of their evil heart, and went backwards and not forward.’”
Psalm 33:10-12 “The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect. The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the plans of His heart to all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, and he people He has chosen as His inheritance.”
Isaiah 54:15-17 “Indeed they shall surely assemble, but not because of Me. whoever assembles against you (Israel) shall fall for your sake...No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgement, you shall condemn.”
Matthew 27:1 “All the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Yeshua to put Him death.”
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. Much needs to change with the church and the Jew!

Shabbat Shalom to all!
The word’s way:
Today it is very difficult to find a satisfactory church. It’s absolutely not because people are looking for a perfect church, or not out of rebellion either, although those problems have always existed.
It is simply because so few churches are preaching the entirety of the gospel (Hebrews 6:1-2) It’s because so many have fallen into the satanic trap of replacement theology and because so many are mixing the word of the world with the word of God.
So many who are filled with the Spirit and moving forward, get drawn back by their church and as a result they leave and try to fly alone.
Solitude is essential for the Christian at times, but not isolation. The church is not going away; it is built on the Rock. Organised, institutionalised churchianity, particularly denominationalism, is sinking and will continue to do so.
The big thing is don’t let your spiritual growth be stunted. If you have to leave a church, and you feel that’s the leading of the Spirit – that’s fine, but don’t then isolate yourself. Seek to find like minded believers, seek prayerfully to find people that can share deeply with and relate to as family.
Many times institutional churches hate you leaving them, because that then prevents them from controlling you. There’s a fine dividing line of error and truth behind control and church discipline!
The Prophetic Scroll will always have your absolute best godly interests at heart. You will always find food for your soul here. But be aware that this ministry can’t take the place of personal fellowship.
The Christian friends you make should be - forever friends. We are all going to meet in glorious unrestricted fellowship in eternity soon, so value the people who God brings into your life now.
I’m reminded of David lamenting at the loss of his son. Here is the story:
2 Samuel 12:23 “Now he is dead, why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him but he will not come to me.
Note that David sees the death of his son as a temporary event. He says that he will go to him again, which is in eternity.
You will see your family members again in heaven, if they were saved when they died.
Exactly the same thing applies to all true church members! So impute some value to them now, because we are all due for a meeting in glory!
Many people may think they have live a good life and gone to church on Sunday’s to crown it, but it’s all superficial with no enduring results; and many churchgoers have not even been born-again.
What a terrible thing to have lived a “successful” life and then find out that you wasted every second of it - remaining unsaved till death.
Colossians 3:23-24 “Whatever you do, do it heartily as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance, for your service to the Lord.”
As we look to our heavenly abode and not at the things of this earth that are seen, we see and hear some wonderful things – if only by spirit at this stage. (2 Corinthians 4:18)
Hebrews 13:14 “Here we have no continuing city, but we seek the one to come.”
God speaks from the mountains!
There is so much that was said and done by God on the mountains. Some of these include: Mount Moriah, Mount Sinai, Mount Ararat, Mount Carmel, Mount Nebo, the Mount of Olives and others. But it is the Mount of transfiguration (Tabor) I want to draw your attention to for a moment.
Yeshua went up the mountain with three of His disciples. Everything was normal, while they looked at the things they could see. Suddenly Moses and Elijah appeared with our Lord, and the disciples were stunned.
Have a look at this wonderful description:
Luke 9:29-31(Amp) “The appearance of His countenance became altered and His raiment became dazzling white, glistening – flashing with the brilliance of lightning, and behold, Moses and Elijah were conversing with Him, who appeared in splendour and majesty and brightness...”
This was a heavenly glory shining from within our Lord and all about Moses and Elijah too. This was something those disciples had never seen before.
If ever there was a description of the aspects of supernatural state - that is it!
Peter, James and John had no idea what they were about to see as the climbed the mountain, but it must have left them shocked beyond measure. Note also that they all knew it was Moses and Elijah, indicating that we will all know who’s who in heaven.
The point is that there is so much supernatural glory coming, that we cannot even begin to comprehend it all.
Whatever you do, don’t give up. Press ahead and go forward, my good friends.
No, you are not only human! You are human now and divine now and about to be filled with the very glory of God forever.
I have spoken a lot about rewards of late. Here are a few more items and also some indicators of what will cause the loss of eternal reward. Our reward state is fixed and is eternal.
Here are some key things that we will be rewarded for:
●Deeds or works, ●biblical wisdom, ●evangelism, ●giving in His name, ●confidence in Him, ●diligently seeking Him, ●prayer and fasting, ●endurance, ● seeing the unseen.
Here are some things that will cause the loss of rewards:
●Backsliding, ●trusting in your own self-effort, ●worldliness, ●submitting to the demonic or any form of witchcraft and legalism, ●rejection of the gifts of the Spirit, ●submission to false doctrine, ●attacking harming or causing God’s people to stumble. ●Measuring yourself by yourself and the modern world. ●Comparing yourself with modern churchianity. ●Seeing the seen.
Revelation 22:12 “Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me to give to everyone according to his work.”
2 Corinthians 4:6 (Amp) “For God who said, ‘let light shine out of darkness’, has shone in our hearts so as to beam forth the Light for an illumination of the knowledge of the majesty and glory of God in the face of Yeshua the Messiah.”
Edition 305: March 30th 2016
The danger of gullibility:
The danger of gullibility:
Proverbs 14:15 “The simple (Lit=gullible) believes every word (anything). But the prudent man considers well his steps.”
A gullible person can be described as one who is easily tricked, cheated, manipulated or deceived. These are people who are naive, easily taken in, or hoodwinked. They repeatedly fall hook, line and sinker for anything presented as truth. They are susceptible, ignorant suckers.
The opposite is a person who is astute, knowledgeable, with deep understanding, caution and wisdom...one who is discerning, perceptive and solid as a rock.
We are now in dark days of deception and its going to get a lot worse very fast. We are now in days of the outpouring of the spirit of Satan, with all his tricks, schemes and plans to keep people unsaved and to neutralise certain believers.
We are in days of extreme evil because the heart of man is wicked internally, and Satan is at work externally, because his days are just about up. (Revelation 12:12)
We need more than ever to go deep in experience with our Lord. We need to go deep into the knowledge and understanding of His word as led and inspired by the Spirit. We need to become radical.
We are in a world that operates on instant, pop-up results. Digital everything lends itself to high-speed results. But it’s all shallow in character.
Our Lord will never compromise on the character of His servants.
The cause of gullibility:
Proverbs 1:32 “...The complacency of fools will destroy them.”
Of course there are many causes of, and different degrees or depths of gullibility, but there are a few big causes that are consistent in most victims. The verse above identifies complacency as one of these causes.
Complacency is really a sense of smugness or security in ones present state of ignorance. Today, huge numbers of people fit the ‘complacent’ bill. Are you content and complacent in your present position? Do you want to push ahead with our Lord, forever forward? If you don’t you just might get stuck in a rut of your own making, going nowhere fast.
The gullible never mature properly, which takes time and effort, because they want it all now and are too shallow to submit to God. There is no depth of spiritual root in them. As a result they are tossed about with every wind of doctrine, fancy idea and error of the devil. (Ephesians 4:14)
Proverbs 14:18 “The simple (naive) inherit folly, but the prudent are crowned with knowledge.”
“Prudent” means: Wise, well-judged, well advised, acting with care and thought for the future.
An inheritance is something that is your birthright, bequested to you. Note in the verse above that simple, naive people inherit foolishness, but you don’t have to take the inheritance! You can choose to leave it aside and be “crowned with knowledge”. How much better that is!
My friends, knowledge understanding and the wisdom of God don’t come cheaply. They will cost you everything you are, and ultimately reward you more than you can imagine.
The verse below is tragic indeed. Do you see how dangerous it is to be influenced by the unsaved world or unsaved friends? This is a certain cause of gullibility.
Habakkuk 1:4 “For the wicked surround the righteous; therefore perverse judgment proceeds.”
Whatever the world esteems highly soon becomes the esteem of the church... in a short time! That’s if you’re not diligent.
There is another frightening cause of gullibility – God Himself! (2 Thessalonians 2:11). (See further down for more on this.)
Why is gullibility such a dangerous problem today?
Proverbs 1:22 “How long, you simple ones (naive ones), will you love foolishness? Scorners (mockers) delight in their scorning and fools hate knowledge.”
The above verse is a perfect description of the workings of pride. How many people do you know who love to mock, they rise up in their scorning. It’s so easy to mock and scorn something or someone that you don’t understand.
The biggest problem facing the unsaved and the gullible Christian today is spiritual blindness. Pride always causes spiritual blindness. Our Lord is coming soon. The world’s lord is coming soon too. Can you see them? Can you see the signs of both approaching?
I have such a perfect example here in my home. I have a beautiful dog that recently went blind. She now has full sight restored. But in her blindness, which came about suddenly, I often watched her walk right into a wall, or a hedge, and saw her fall into my pool twice. She was totally blind to all dangers and obstacles. Thankfully, the story now is the opposite.
But that’s the case for the spiritually blind – no different! How absolutely shocking to be in that position! How amazing it is to see people blunder on ahead straight into the obstacle and trap the devil has lain.
If you get your news from the deceived, spiritually blind, news media, please tell me what’s going on with Islamic terror at the moment? Well, you would say what the media says. It’s all about a few who have been radicalised. But not one of them knows why.
We, who know the Bible and the Spirit of our God, know that all who believe the Quran must ultimately become radical enforcers of Sharia law. We know that a grand Islamic strategy is on the go to spread fear so that Sharia law can come in without too much resistance. We know that a grand strategy is on the go to “soften” and deal with other Muslim nations, to bring them all fully into their fold.
We also know that this is all a pre-cursor strategy to their great overall, end-time purpose of defeating Israel, and the Jew, which is on hold right now, while these other strategies take precedent.
We know that the USA is a key target of Islam and will soon experience terror like never before. We know that it’s all part of the grand strategy of Satan to control and dominate the world. We also know that Islam will be defeated by Israel in the tribulation period – how about that!
We know that all of this means our Lord is coming very soon. It’s all a fast approaching glory story!
You see, if you know these things and can see them, you will not be filled with fear. You will not be gullible and fall for all the clever rubbish of the media and the self-motivation ministers.
Knowing God’s word and Spirit is the way to victory. It is the hope of the world. It is the answer.
Proverbs 21:10-11 “The soul of the wicked desires evil...when the wise is instructed he receives knowledge.”
There is something in the hearts of the unsaved, but also in many believers that secretly loves evil. They reject God’s wisdom. And they remain trapped in their evil, full of blindness and gullibility.
Don’t let the pride of the gullible stand in the way of your growth in the Lord.
More on gullibility:
Perhaps one of the most powerful revelations you can receive from our Lord and His word is that truth and error are spirits. Gullibility is a form a deception and a spirit of error.
Isaiah 5:13 “My people have gone into captivity because they have no knowledge ...” The word “knowledge” is Strong’s H1847 meaning “perceptive, discerning” knowledge.
Proverbs 1:28-29 “Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; they will seek Me diligently, but will not find Me, because they hated knowledge (discerning godly knowledge) and did not chose the fear of the Lord.”
Job 17:9 “The righteous will hold onto his ways, and he who has clean hands will be stronger and stronger.”
The tragedy of our day is that most Christians live on second-hand revelation, that of others and not necessarily from the Spirit of the Lord speaking to them directly in their own studies and prayer. You can’t live on other people’s revelation for long.
Some examples of modern deceptions that the gullible fall for include the new Christian belief in a flat earth (not a joke – look it up). Nibiru (Planet X) is a fast growing modern internet hoax with no scientific or astronomical supporting evidence.
There are many other doctrinal heresies and imbalances out there.
We are commanded to “take heed” that we are not deceived.
You can’t hide gullibility. Eventually it will show and identify you. You will be known by the friends you keep. The gullible are always drawn to others who are in the same boat, because the same spirit is at work.
One of the main characteristics of the gullible is that they ignore the facts and the truth as they build their hobby-horse. Their hobby-horse becomes their supreme god, but it is a Trojan horse with the deception of the devil inside. They end up being blind to all but their hobby-horse.
There are no gullible, deceived people who know their Lord well and who know the word very well.
The closer you get to the living God the more clearly you see Him. You will see a Lamb change into a Lion. You will see the depths of His love and severity. You will see truth and error clearly. You will not be gullible.
The further away from our Lord you move the more difficult it is to see Him and His characteristics, His requirements and His holiness. Because you are now in relative darkness, your world now becomes a polluted, poisonous mess, and you can’t even see it. Truth and error become blurred.
It’s a great tragedy to have someone behind a pulpit present to you a Jesus that He himself can’t see because he is too far from Him on every front. So the Jesus you are presented with is manufactured by church doctrine.
The person, who knows our God well, is marked by that knowledge. He is a mystery in many ways. He is attractive and to be feared. He is humble and a strong, fighting defender of truth. He is everything but gullible!
Why do some have a propensity for gullibility? One of the reasons is that some believers have a real desire to serve the Lord and they get in there too quickly and they’re not ready yet. The Lord has not released them, so they are open to all sorts of presumptions, errors and false spirits.
Others have been plagued with rejection all their lives and now find acceptance in the family of God. But they are really there for the ulterior motive of getting rid of rejection. So they don’t mature in the Lord. They stay in realms of superficiality.
The following verses are insightful in regard to our walk with our Lord:
2 Timothy 4:3-4 “The time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves, teachers; and turn their ears away from the truth.”
Colossians 2:8 “Beware lest anyone cheat you (take you captive) through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the traditions of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Messiah.”
Psalm 119:130 “The entrance of your words gives light. It gives understanding to the simple.”
1 Corinthians 3: 19 “The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. It is written – He catches the wise in their own craftiness. The Lord knows the thoughts of the (worldly) wise, that they are futile.”
Many will be shocked:
●What an incredible shock to die and immediately find out that you were on the wrong road all your life.
●What a shock to find out that the Bible was true and right all along and available to you.
●What a shock to find out that heaven was so close and is now too far.
●What a shock to find that there are no human rights and no democracy in hell and you are there forever.
●What a shock to know that you were born with a magnificent plan and purpose of God, thought out before the foundation of the world, and you rejected it in your ignorance!
●What a shock to find out that you have stolen and wasted your life on self and the devil’s world!
●What a shock to discover that you are the subject of God’s judgement without an advocate or Saviour.
●What a shock to meet up with all your very “clever” unsaved friends who have passed on.
●What a shock to find out that your close friends were all wrong and that the media, which you trusted is really the word of the devil.
●What a shock to find out that you will not rest in peace for one second.
Of course none of this needs to be your lot!
The beauty of growth and stability while the world is shaking:
When the pressure is on you will see where people’s hearts really are. It’s like the toothpaste tube law: When you squeeze it, you see what’s inside!
How to know if you are growing, being led by the Spirit of God:
●You will always be led into all truth. You will grow in a love for the truth. You will identify with the truth and others who love it. You will delight in doing it, and be free as a result.
●You will see and know many things to come, both personally and on the big, world, prophetic stage.
John 16:13 “When He the Spirit of truth has come, He will guide you into all truth...and He will show you things to come.”
●The beauty of holiness will be your lot.
Psalm 96:9 “Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before Him all the earth.”
●You will begin to see the world for what it is, and you will overcome it. You will see self and it’s “doctrines” as your enemy and you will see devils and demons.
1 John 5:4 “Whoever is born of God overcomes the world...”
As we draw nearer to our Lord, so we overcome the world more and more. Yes it’s all done already in the spirit, but not in the soul. Overcoming the world and worldliness is a most wonderful thing. It lifts you into another world!
The world system is doomed. All sin is doomed. All wickedness will soon be gone. All evil has a time-stamp on it! The terror of man and the terror of God are about to collide. Those who know their God and live in holiness are safe.
The way to victory:
2 Thessalonians 2:8-11 “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs and lying wonders, with all unrighteous deception among those who did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. For this reason God will send them strong delusion...”
Right from the beginning of this edition you would have noticed that the main problem and causes behind gullibility are foolishness, ignorance, error, naivety, and spiritual blindness. We are dealing primarily with spirits. Truth and error are spirits.
We need and must have the revelatory gifts of the Spirit at work in us to see and identify evil spiritual forces so that we can deal with them properly.
You can try until you are blue in the face to fix and deal with these issues with ordinary head knowledge. Even if you do find the answer, it will have a death-spirit over it and will not lead you into full and true deliverance.
God did not give us the gifts of the spirit to deal with the works of the devil for us to say we don’t need them.
Some idiot ministers of the gospel repeatedly say that the gifts of the Spirit were only needed in the apostolic era to establish faith and the word of God. The gifts then passed away with the last apostle. What absolute hogwash!
If ever there is a time when faith, and the truth of the word needs to be established it is now. It is under attack now more so than ever before.
By the way, the church really did well after the last apostle died and the gifts “ceased”! Without the gifts, especially the revelatory gifts, the church became hijacked by Rome, Babylon and all manner of evil. The popes all became mass murderers of note, killing millions in the inquisitions. The church without the gifts became an institution of mass control and domination, no different at all to ISIS. Without the gifts, the churches of the reformation produced over 30,000 denominations! (God’s requirement is unity!)
Without the gifts the church became a seed bed of anti-Semitism and hatred for the Jew and God’s plans for them, their city and land – just like the Spirit-less BDS Movement today and the other anti-Semitic denominations and churches.
If you are a Christian in today’s world without the gifts of the Spirit – good luck. You are going to need it in coming days. Luck will be your big helper.
My friends, to escape the trap of gullibility, you need to study your Bible well under the guiding and inspiration of the Holy Spirit. You need to turn in repentance, surrender and humility to our Lord. You need the full complement of the gifts, especially the revelatory gifts.
You need to separate yourself and study the word well for much time.
You can be free from gullibility. You must strengthen yourself, studying the word for much time and getting to know our Lord well. This will pay wonderful dividends.
The answer to gullibility is knowledge, understanding and the wisdom of God built up into your life. Draw near to Him and away from the world and its ways.
You must apply and use the gifts of the Spirit, especially the revelatory gifts.
I took this picture deep in the Tsitsikamma Forest of the beautiful Fraser Falls. There are no paths here, so it was all arm-ripping thorns and glorious mud.
