This website is distinctly Messianic, comprising the Abrahamic expression of faith, which is to the Jew and the Gentile with a Hebraic character. We affirm the fullness of absolute truth contained in the Bible, embracing the cross and identifying with the convocations of the Lord as seen in the Feasts, the Sabbath and Passover. We reject the legalism of many in the Messianic movement. We reject the Babylonian Pagan traditions of the church. We consider all people Jews and Gentiles and those in all churches who are truly born of the Spirit of the living God to be one family. We reject institutional organised denominationalism (division). We foresee a great falling away of much of the church in these days, while at the same time a great restoration of part of the church. We affirm and identify with God's plan and call to the Jewish people in these days and will support and stand with them as future brothers and sisters. We stand happily with pre / mid/ and post tribbers. Our slant is cautiously pre-trib, but hey, post tribber...you're still family! Today much error has been added to Christendom and much truth has been removed. The Prophetic Scroll's aim is to deal with these issues and assist you on your road to glory.
I was saved in 1976 and became extremely interested in Bible prophecy, being an ex war-correspondent and photographer. My calling and aim is to share the dramatic and all-important issues of prophecy relating to our day. This is a calling to unfold and share the wisdom of God as contained in His word. There is also much teaching in these pages for your heart. It’s not all prophecy! Please study these things further yourself and understand that the format is non-exhaustive. Please search the scriptures to “see if these be true.” This is a "watchman" and Bible prophecy teaching website.

●Israeli / Iran relationship heats up as Iran warns Israel to respect the nuclear agreement. Iran unveils new “smart missiles”. This while an ISIS terrorist is discovered plotting chemical attacks in Israel (Israel National News, 20th February)
●Syria fires missile into Israel which lands harmlessly in the Golan, but infuriates Israel. (19th February)
●Israel attacked with missiles fired from Sinai region. (There has been a large increase in missile attacks on Israel, since Netanyahu declared “A new day of friendship with the US.”)
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.
Edition 338: November 16th 2016
The Bible isn’t exactly clear on what sort of political system a nation should have, but it does contain many vital principles. In politics we are essentially dealing with the world system, so a theocracy is not required for any nation, but a nation under God is!
In other words, a nation should always have God above its constitution and respect the law of God.
The Bible does come pretty close to spelling out the political system required for the State of Israel, which is what much of this edition is about – and the arising new monster threat to Israel, of which very few are aware.
In this edition I want to have a look at some surprising facts about the politics of God for the nations and for Israel.
I will also look at some of the big principles and philosophies of democracy and related issues.
I’ll also have a further look at some of the issues of the recent US election.
The destruction of globalism:
Globalism is the agenda of Satan and the world’s fiscal and political elite, the establishment, the world’s liberals and others. Globalism sounds so good. It means togetherness, unity and “let’s all love one another right now”. This is the way to build world peace they believe.
Everyone must all be one, in this brave new world, living side by side with LGBTs, university intellectuals, liberal democrats and all people. Globalism creates a strong new world, they believe!
Yes, you can even find globalism in the Bible:
Genesis 11:6 “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing they propose to do will be withheld from them.”
Do you see the power in unity (globalism)? “Nothing will be withheld from them.” That would include world peace. The rest of this portion of scripture goes on to describe God’s destruction of this effort at Babel, including the full destruction of Babylon.
The exact opposite of globalism, God’s way, is revealed in the hated instruction for nations in Acts.
Acts 17:26 “God has made from one blood, every nation (ethnic tribe) to dwell on the face of the earth, and determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, so that they should seek the Lord...”
The Bible is the only book whose system, when applied can make you truly free. All other political systems enslave you to man, under the false promise of peace, liberty and freedom.
There are two major sweeping themes to be aware of now. These are the rejection of globalism by the masses and the rejection of mass Muslim migration into Western nations. These two alone could cause a much bigger crack in the world than many think.
The UK’s Brexit and the US election shows the masses now voting against the establishment. Poland is about to do the same. Votes are coming up in Italy, France and others. They are all expected to show the same swing away from the globalist agendas.
●●●Politics in concert with the mass-media has a massive, deadly agenda which is not to give you peace or make you better. Its agenda and objective is to change you into one of them, so that the devil can walk in and have easy access to you. It is to insert into you their values, lack of virtues and make you a true world-human – a dead machine with God removed.
The agenda of the world’s politics, the mass-media and its rulers is to produce what’s best for Satan.
Liberalism believes that any truth must justify itself before the god of collective human reasoning. Toleration of all things in and with their sin is the highest value of the liberal.
True Christianity is rooted in the supernatural. Liberalism is rooted in naturalism with the “super” (God) missing, and sin at home within.
Liberalism has as its main objective – world peace, but Satan’s way. The uniqueness of the cross is that it separates, and divides between Godly ways and Satan’s.
The catch phrase of all liberals is: “Every day in every way we are getting better and better.”
They all have no answer for sin. They all reject the cross...they have a sin-filled “better.”
When you remove God from a nation or society a horror-inverse begins to take place. Here it is:
The cycle of doom:
There is a well identifiable, repeating pattern in history, which runs from liberty to tyranny. Liberty with God removed becomes tyranny.
Freedom is not real freedom if it allows freedom to be destroyed. That’s Satan’s way.
It is the knowledge of God in the land that produces restraint. (Hosea 4:2) Democracy with God removed becomes intrinsically evil and a system of Satan.
If you want to remain an ignorant, uniformed idiot, just let you primary source of everything be the politicians and mass-media. They are guaranteed to deceive you. If you want to be truly liberated, free, full of truth and holiness, let your primary source be the word of God, the Spirit of God, and put the mass media right down at the bottom of the list.
God’s word on politics:
For your benefit here are some important verses on the politics of God for the Christian:
1 Timothy 2:1-4 “Pray for Kings and all in authority that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour, who desires all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth.”
This verse above, gives us the very purpose of politics under God. It is that we may live a quite, peaceable life in an environment where the gospel can go out unhindered, to get people saved.
Psalm 33:12 “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, and the people whom He has chosen as His own inheritance.”
Note the word “blessed” in the verse above! It comes to a nation whose constitution has respect and reverence for God and His law. Now have a look at the exact opposite in the verse below:
Deuteronomy 28:47-48 “Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joy and gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things, therefore you shall serve your enemies, whom the Lord will send against you, in hunger and thirst, in nakedness and in need of all things; and He will put a yolk of iron on your neck until He has destroyed you.”
Do you see how poverty and failure comes to a nation in the verse above?
Now read the verse below. Note that a nation must have a pro-Israel stance. Do you know that every nation on earth ever, that has not done so, has collapsed or been destroyed somewhere down the line. Some are still awaiting their destruction which is coming soon.
Isaiah 60:12 “The nation and kingdom which will not serve you (Israel) shall perish, and those nations shall be utterly ruined.”
Genesis 12:3 “I will bless those who bless you (Israel) and I will curse those who curse you.”
Democracy will kill Israel, or will it?
That’s an emotive headline. It’s only partially true. Israel’s political system is a multi-party democratic Parliamentary system with an elected President and an independent judiciary.
But here’s the catch, and the reason why the world will go crazy over this issue. The Israeli electorate does not include the people of the so-called “occupied territories.” They do not have voting rights in Israel itself.
The people of the “territories” have their own internal political parties and system. This is why Israel is often (falsely) called an apartheid state.
There are 10.7 million Palestinians in these “territories.” 95% of them are Muslim. They have the fastest growing population in the world.
25% of the Israeli population are Arabs. 81% of them are Muslims. They have full, equal, voting rights if they are resident within the State of Israel itself and not the “occupied territories.” Arabs currently hold ten seats in the Knesset. It is not an apartheid state!
A full, all inclusive, one man, one vote system, including those of the “occupied territories,” would immediately destroy the Jewish State! Israel would become a Muslim state in five seconds, simply due to the numbers.
So what do we do with this conundrum?
Now, I’m again going to intentionally offend many of you.
You have raised democracy to God-status. You think man’s choice is the final answer if it’s in the majority. You blind fools. You deserve to be deceived!
You think that the majority is right, because they are the majority! You think you are wise and can see! In case you didn’t get it – you are blind, stupid fools!
You say (especially all you morons in the UN, EU and others) that the democratic way is to throw all of Israel, including the “territories” into one big melting pot and winner takes all. “That’s democracy”, you say!
Do you know what a constitution is? It is just the same as a covenant. Please go to the button at the top of the page entitled “Teachings” and read “Covenants and Promises” Here I have spelt out God’s eternal, political constitution for Israel. Here's a few:
Deuteronomy 4:40 “You shall keep His statutes and commandments that it may go well with you and with your children after you, and that you may prolong your days in the land which the Lord your God is giving you for all time.”
Deuteronomy 1:8 “See I have set the land before you; go in and possess (Lit=occupy) the land which the Lord swore to your fathers – to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give to them and to their descendants after them.”
Genesis 17:18-21 “Abraham said to God, ‘O that Ishmael might live before You!’ Then God said: “No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendant after him.”
God excludes the so-called Palestinian territories from His constitution!
The UN, EU and others are now looking at a new one-state solution for Israel in light of the continued failure of the two-state solution. But it is this one state, which includes the people of the “territories” as part of Israel.
This would be nothing but the transformation of all of Israel into an Islamic Palestinian State... just what Satan wants!
Israel’s three choices are: ●A One- State Solution. ●A Two- State solution. ●An independent democratic Jewish State excluding the “territories.” Only one, the latter, is God’s choice!
The Palestinians have repeatedly said (and demonstrated), that no Jew will be allowed into an “Islamic Israel”, if it ever came about. Interestingly, the blinded, biased, mass-media, the voice of Satan, has never questioned that extreme Nazi-like apartheid ever. The reason is because they are of the same spirit!
Yet they continuously condemn Israel for its obedience to God’s word and His covenant promises!
Mike Pence: “Israel is not hated for what she does wrong, but for what she does right. Israel is hated by terrorists and the failed states that support them. Israel is hated because she is free.”
You can be very, very sure that the mass media will inspire, influence and motivate the next Holocaust, which they will be partly responsible for creating and supporting!
►God commanded the Jews never to assimilate into the nations of the world in their dispersion. They have never been able to assimilate! Have you ever wondered why? The reason is to preserve their identity, biblical value system with the traditions and convocations of God.
Assimilation has always been forbidden by our Lord.
Zechariah 10:9 “I will sow them among the peoples (nations), and they shall remember Me in the far countries. They shall live together with their children, and they shall return.”
Understand that the dispersion does not mean that God is finished with the Jews or the land, yet the Palestinians today believe the land and the city is theirs! In fact the very purpose for the command not to assimilate, is for the great end-time Second Exodus and return.
What is coming now, very soon is an all out conflict between God’s will and choice and Satan’s.
Will the USA now stand with God’s will and choice? Will the USA facilitate God’s choice for Israel?
So far, it looks like it.
Here is terrible indictment upon the mass-media and the nations that turn from the ways of God:
***Jeremiah 7:28 “This is the nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God, nor receive correction. Truth has perished and has been cut off from their mouth.”
***Jeremiah 8:8-9 “How can you say, ‘we are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us’? ‘Look the false pen of the scribe certainly works falsehood. The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken. Behold, they have rejected the word of the Lord; so what wisdom do they have?’”
Biblical characteristics of Islam:
The following characteristics are derived from the verses listed. They apply to the people who became our modern day Arabs, which in turn is applied to Islam, although obviously not exclusively.
●They live by the sword. (Genesis 27:40-41)
●They live by violence against their brother (Israel). (Obadiah 1:10)
●They are wild men, unrestrained, with their hand against every man. (Genesis 16:12)
●They are scheming, betraying and jealous. (Genesis 25, Genesis 21:9)
Donald Trump is likely to be an end-time surprise, but Muslims will be the big spanner in the works.
The Muslim Brotherhood has already declared the Trump victory a “disaster.” Trump will in turn declare them a terrorist organisation!”
The 45th President of the US – Donald Trump:
►The biggest losers of the US election, without doubt were the mass-media – CNN in particular!
45 is written in Hebrew as “Gavle.” The word means “redemption.” Other meanings include “preservation” and “protection”. One of the numerics websites lists 45 as “world ruler.”
The Trump / Cyrus connection:
Picture above: Cyrus, who facilitated the return of the stolen temple vessels back to Jerusalem and gave the decree to rebuild the temple.
For more on the importance and significance of the Third Temple, see edition 324 HERE.
Cyrus was chosen and used by God for His purposes in spite of the fact that Cyrus was no saint and was a Gentile ruler.
Interestingly, this section below on Cyrus the king of Persia was sent to me from a Persian, (Iranian) Jewish believer!
Cyrus was the Persian king in power when the Jewish captivity in Babylon ended. He was responsible for the destruction of the Babylonian Empire and the return of the Jews, carrying the sacred temple implements and vessels that had been plundered and stolen by the Babylonians, back to Jerusalem.
It was this theft of the sacred temple vessels that caused the “writing on the wall.”
Cyrus was well known for his decree to allow the Jews to rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem.
The name Cyrus means “far-sighted.”
Isaiah 45 is interesting in this regard: (I’ve strung together the relevant verses from the chapter.)
Isaiah 45:1-25 “Thus says the Lord to His anointed, Cyrus, whose right hand I have held – to subdue nations and loose the amour of kings, and to open before him the double doors, so that the gates will not be shut...I will give you the treasures of the darkness and hidden riches of secret places...For Israel’s sake and My elect, I have called you by your name; I have named you though you have not known Me...I will direct all his ways, he shall build My city and let My exiles go free, not for price nor reward, says the Lord of Hosts. Israel shall be saved by the Lord. In the Lord all the descendants of Israel shall be justified and shall glory.”
Obviously we can’t align everything from this chapter 45 with Trump the 45th, but there is enough here, in double reference to draw attention. Here we see a Gentile leader called of God, before he even knows God to subdue nations (Arab nations / UN). He will cause their armour to fall and will open double doors and gates (prosperity). Treasure of the deep may refer to oil wealth. He acts for Israel. This leader will be directed by God at times. He will facilitate the continuance of the Second Exodus of Jews back to Israel and may even cause it, as wars with Muslim nations erupt. He will stand for the salvation of the Jews.
There is much more that is still to be revealed about this new leader’s role and involvement in the rebuilding of the temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
Does God choose perfect people to be political rulers? The answer is no, never.
Psalm 89:19 “...I have exalted one chosen from the people.”
Is it possible that Trump will end up a total disaster? Yes it is, but it’s unlikely. My point is simple. Due to the time period we are in, with all the signs before us, and prophetic fulfilment pointing to the very soon climax of all these things, there just isn’t enough time for this all to be but another brick in the wall.
Regular readers will know, I’ve often slammed the US, but always with a caution. The US may well have a reprieve now and a role in the end-time plan of God.
The US election has revealed a lot more than the winner. It has revealed the deep inner issues of the heart of man. Those who love sin and make political gods of it have been identified. Those who want a return to a more God-defined political world have been identified.
The Trump and Brexit issues have most certainly identified the world-issues, but more than that, they are in the process of polarising them and preparing for a great end-time battle of right and wrong, good and evil, God and the devil!
The new enemy is already emerging in the form of the liberal, one-worlders with the mass-media behind them, with a globalist agenda, an unrestricted pro-Muslim migration agenda. Their agenda is “the acceptable year of sin.” All supported by the blind counterfeit church...the true bastard (illegitimate) church!
