The following verses apply well to the mass media:
Job 9:4 “Who has hardened his heart against Him and prospered?”
Isaiah 43:13 “...I work and who can reverse it?”
Philippians 1:9 “I pray that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and all discernment...”
Jeremiah 7:28 “You shall say to them, ‘This is a nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God, nor receive correction. Truth has perished and been cut off from their mouth.”
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah and to identify the rift, and the needed restoration. There is much in the church that needs to change before it can be fully reconciled with the Jew. Likewise, changes in Jewish thinking are also needed.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
The evil “I am”:
This is the ‘me now’ generation, ruled by ‘me, myself, I.’ It is the generation where the cry of the masses is “I am, and there is no other”. Here it is written in ages past:
Isaiah 47:10 “You have trusted in your wickedness. You have said, ‘no one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you; and you have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one else besides me.’”
One of the titles of our Messiah is “I am.” So, which ‘I am’ are you going to serve?
In the last few weeks I had two dramatic, most insightful encounters with two individuals, who had professed to be believers for years. Let’s call them Mr A. and Miss B.
Mr A has a foul mouth. I asked him to watch his language, and then spoke of something I had written here in The Prophetic Scroll (TPS). Well, Mr. A exploded and condemned me and TPS, with a tirade of swearing. To be honest, I was shocked to see the sudden extent of his antagonism.
Miss B then came along and exploded because I pointed out that the Bible condemned some of her witchcraft practises which she had tried to mix into her so-called Christianity. She instantly yelled like an electrified Jezebel, rejecting everything I said including the words of the Bible.
These two events are indicative and symptomatic of the world today, including some of the modern compromised churches.
Firstly, let’s analyse the events:
Both Mr A and Miss B were challenged to repent of sin. Both had a violent reaction to the conviction. It was not me or TPS or the Bible that they were offended at, but the personal application of conviction repentance and change, which was now on the table.
It was the conviction that they tried to get rid of by choosing the way of confrontation, and hostility. The way of spineless love would be to say nothing and tolerate it. The way of real godly love is the way of rebuke, and correction. (2 Timothy 3:16) If the individual will not receive it, so be it.
In the light you see the truth, but you also see sin. The light of God will reveal it and what to do about it. The darkness will hide it and attack the light! You can only repent from sin. If you remove what is called sin, re-name it, or water it down, no repentance is required and anything goes.
A hazy spiritual light will give you unclear half truths.
There are a number of bad things at work within many people. They want nothing standing in the way of self’s sin. They want no conviction. They are their own “I am.”
They want to bring people, ministries and the Bible down because it correctly identifies sin and opposes their participation in it. They try to exalt themselves above all authority.
They must tear down the things of God to give expression to their sin-nature.
The world and its god, fallen man and his god, are speeding down the road to soon coming doom.
●These end-times are bringing our Lord closer. ●The antichrist is also getting closer.
●The Man of holiness is drawing near. ●The man of sin is drawing near.
But for sin to flourish, holiness must be cast down. This is the state of the world today.
The problem with many today is that they are deceived, ignorant, don’t care, are proud, with no knowledge of God, and no restraint and discipline.
Most people today are a living offence to God. Of course, they can’t see that, because they are in the dark. It is the responsibility of the church to shed God’s light into this fallen world now.
As the end of the age approaches, the true church is becoming clearly visible in the light of God’s truth, and so is the false church! The eternal glorious kingdom of God, which will be the real survivor, is becoming more evident all the time, but it is exclusive.
By the way, the false church is not destroyed by God in the tribulation. It is destroyed, by its own god, the false Messiah!
The false church is becoming easier to spot. It is designed to make you comfortable in the world and in sin. It hides and obscures sin and its consequences. When the cross is obscured, sin is elevated.
The comfort of the world is not worth the effort of seeking. The world will comfort you in your sin and say, ‘it’s all okay now’. The word of God will not comfort you in your sin. It will condemn and convict you, and then empower you to change and become holy. That is what real true love is all about!
The well used term “There is now no condemnation,” is greatly misused in the church. In reality it is associated with repentance. It is conditional. Here it is:
Romans 8:1 “There is no condemnation to those who are in Messiah, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”
The woman caught in adultery was forgiven by our Lord. (John 8:10-11) But He said to her, ‘Now go and sin no more.’ This was the command of repentance and correction. She was not forgiven to continue in adultery.
Tradition holds that this was the “woman of sin” in Luke 7:37 and in fact was Mary Magdalene. If it was her, that means that her repentance led to her being the first one to see our Lord resurrected. It is a repentant attitude and life that cause spiritual sight.
May I say, that if you want a healthy spiritual life, break from the world’s ways and join and receive the word’s ways. Repent of sin now, but be advised, that a walk of repentance will do you more good than any exercises ever will!
Yes be free in your God-given liberty, but always keep an eye on the old sin nature and its desire to self-resurrect and trip you up.
Above all, in these dangerous days - exalt, uplift, revere and magnify the word of God in your life.
Be encouraged, stand strong – you can and must!
Edition 343: December 21st 2016
Christmas is a Catholic-created Jew-killer! Their salvation killer! The Catholics say the Jews killed Jesus. They are wrong. The Catholics, even now, long after the Inquisitions are most responsible for the Jews rejecting their Messiah.
There is one thing no Christian pastor or leader who supports Christmas can do – impossible. That is to believe God’s word on these things. They say they believe the Bible. They don’t. They must dethrone it, re-interpret it, nullify it and cast it down in favour of the word of the devil! (Or as is the case with many, be ignorant of God’s word in these most important issues.)
Bear in mind that God’s anointing is always on the truth and never on error. There is great freedom in the truth!
Do you think Christmas will be celebrated under the rulership of the Jewish Messiah in the Millennium? You’ve got be crazy!
I’m not going to get into all the origins of Christmas (and Easter) in this edition. If you want to, just look it up. Type into your search engine: “Pagan roots of Christmas,” or any such thing. There is more than enough evidence out there proving that every single aspect of Christmas has pagan, occult roots in the heart of Babylonian devil-worship. (See resources at bottom. Please read the final verse at the bottom – 10 times!)
Christmas was born in the heart of Satan. Saint Nick in fact, is a title for Satan (look it up). Every single aspect, practice, convocation, of Christmas, without exception, is rooted in witchcraft, stemming from ancient Babylon. This includes:
The name Christ Mass, is the Catholic convocation of the Eucharist, in which they believe that the wafer becomes the actual body of Christ. (Transubstantiation)Thus, they crucify our Lord over and over. The Bible says He died “once for all.”
The date, the Yule log, the ivy, the Christmas tree, presents, the eating of ham and everything else is rooted in Babylonian occult practice. Even the gold and silver balls decorating the tree originate from sun and moon worship. The Babylonians would fasten a fir-tree to the floor and decorate it with these sun and moon-worship objects. (Jeremiah 10:2-4)
Christmas is one with Catholicism, which is rooted in Babylon – all the way through. By the way, all of these principles relate to Easter as well. In fact, the name Easter is the Babylonian sex-goddess Ishtar.
So the modern church comes along and says, well, we don’t believe the occult pagan stuff, we just use the names and the practises. You have to really wonder at the logic of that!
Exodus 23:13 “Be circumspect and make no mention of the name of other gods, nor let it be heard from your mouth.”
Deuteronomy 7:25-26 “You shall burn the carved images of their gods with fire; you shall not covet the silver and gold that is on them (Lit=decorations), do not take it for yourself, lest you be snared by it; for it is an abomination to the Lord your God. Nor shall you bring an abomination (Lit=pagan idol) into your home, lest you be doomed to destruction like it; but you shall utterly destroy it and utterly abhor it, for it is an accursed thing.”
Zechariah 13:2 “It shall be in that day, says the Lord of hosts, ‘that I will cut off the names of the idols from the land, and they shall no longer be remembered. I will also cause the prophets and the unclean spirits to depart from the land.”
Why did Constantine and later the Catholic church introduce occult, Babylonian tradition into the church?
There were two main reasons. Firstly it was because Constantine had made Christianity the official religion of the land and he knew that his subjects practised these occult traditions, as he did. So by mixing them into the church, he believed he would make Christianity more palatable for the masses.
Secondly and much more important, the first leaders of the Catholic church were anti-Semitic in the extreme and knew that by replacing the feasts of the Lord with Christmas, Easter and the like, they would keep the Jews out of the church, because they would not participate in Babylonian occult practises.
Christmas is fully occult and pagan – so what!
Most Christians would say – the world thinks it is okay and even participates, therefore it must be okay. What a stupid argument! Most Christians would say, “I think it is okay, therefore it is okay. These people obviously have no knowledge of the Bible or no fear of God, or both.
Christmas is so loved by so many people – empty, superficial people, many are the walking dead full of the love and toleration of all things worldly.
There is no acceptable or clean and sanctified paganism. Some Christians erroneously use the verse “Becoming all things to all people” to justify their participation in devil worship. That verse never includes participation is sin.
The problem with all forms of Babylon-rooted paganism is that it has dramatic, far-reaching results, especially with the Jews, who know all about being enslaved in Babylon.
Since I got into all these things back in the late 70s, every time I see a Christmas tree I cringe!
The dramatic Anti-Semitic effects of Christmas on the Jews:
Let’s first of all look at God’s ways and requirements for His people in dealing with paganism.
Why did God harden Pharaoh’s heart? (Exodus 10:1)
We know that the children of Israel when captive in Egypt had adopted their pagan practises.
Here is a great shock! Do you know that one of the reasons for the Exodus was so the Jews could keep the feasts of the Lord?
Exodus 5:1-2 “Thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘Let My people go that they may hold a feast to Me in the wilderness.”
God’s method of bringing His people to holiness is for them to willingly choose Him and His ways. But if they will not come out of paganism, judgement follows.
Most people are not aware that one of the reasons God hardened Pharaoh’s heart and destroyed him and his armies, was essentially because he would not “let my people go” to keep the feast to Him.
The command of Moses was to “Let my people go” - from Egypt and the pagan worship which had infiltrated into the Jewish camp of Egypt.
The command of God is always “Come out and be separate.” We as modern believers have not been saved from and brought out of the world, only to continue in its evil! And where are God’s people to go to in their separation? They are to go to the Promised Land where God’s holiness resides. It is to go into His presence of purity and holiness.
You can say that what I’m speaking is rubbish, – be my guest. But welcome to your new world of a rock-hard heart...hardened by God!
Job 9:4 “...Who has hardened his heart against Him and prospered?”
Did you know that God is still in the heart-hardening business! Study your Bible! (It’s always the unrepentant that God blinds.)
You don’t come out of the world with a half heart, trying to placate and accommodate God and the devil. You don’t come out with one foot in the truth and the other in the witchcraft of Christmas as so many blind ministers teach.
►If you think that’s the thing to do, I have one question for you. Do you remember Lot’s wife? She ended up good to be crushed and put in the sprinkler jar next to the pepper.
Noah’s world and paganism:
The Bible speaks of the condition of the world in Noah’s day as fully evil, filled with sin, paganism, violence and the like. God warned then destroyed.
Bear in mind that Noah spent a great deal of his life building a boat for tomorrow, which was to float through the judgement and destruction of God upon the world. He and his family “came out” and were separate from the world.
The new world was holy and pure, although it didn’t last for long.
Noah’s new world after the flood was just as much his “promised land” as that of the children of Israel. It was pure and separate from paganism.
Satan’s ace trump has always been to defeat God’s people from within.
A message to the Jews:
As the veil of your spiritual blindness begins to lift, many multitudes of you are going to be looking for the truth. Many are already. Here’s how to know which Christians still want you dead and which ones really do love you and want you spiritually alive as fellow brothers and sisters.
Do the Christians in view want you to join and participate in the convocations of Rome, Babylon? Do they want to remove from you, all traces of the godly convocations like the feasts of the Lord? Do they want to change your Hebraic character to one born in Rome / Babylon? Their interest in you is more about you becoming enslaved again than set free in holy, pure salvation.
Some Christian ministers want you to mix Babylonian practice with church, and its pagan customs. These people are nothing. They are a zero. They have nothing for you.
Is the church in which you have taken an interest an open door for you Jews, not only in word but in practise and even appearance? Are there some Hebraic items on display such as art or on the walls? Does the church strike a chord in your heart, my Jewish friends, or is it to you just another temple of Baal, Babylon?
Interestingly, most people want to know about and share their heritage. They have an attachment to it. I’ve just received an email from a US reader sharing proudly his roots. He is a descendant of the 12th US President, Zachary Taylor. He shared some similarities between him and Trump.
The point is that the church should be proud of and preserving of its heritage and roots in Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Israel) – the Jews and the early church, before Constantine.
If you had come to this planet from Mars, and went to most churches, you would say they were born in the evil lap of the Catholics, who themselves were greatly influenced and inspired by Babylon.
The traditional churches want nothing to do with you, my Jewish friends, in spite of the fact that our book, the New Covenant Epistles commands us to “make you Jews jealous” and says that our gospel is to go to the “Jew first and then the Gentiles.”
God’s convocations and traditions, the feasts in particular, are called “holy” throughout the Bible.
The paganism of Christmas is unholy in the extreme and is condemned, judged, rebuked by God.
The great mistake many make is dealing softly, softly with the devil and his traditions.
You can befriend the traditions of the world, rooted in Satanism, or you can defy the devil. Defend or defy the devil – that’s it, isn’t it? Should we have sympathy for the devil?
The early church lost its first love, which would have included holiness, purity and truth. Very quickly, mixture came in. Mixture of truth and error will always defeat you and nullify the truth.
There is an unseen powerful authority imputed to these evil traditions. There is the powerful force backed and empowered by collective group-speak!
The big, huge problem with Christmas is that it is not offensive to the world. The world loves it and partakes in it. Stupid Christians try to “put Christ back into Christmas” when He was never anywhere near it!
The holy Feasts of Lord on the other hand are offensive to and rejected by the world. They do not participate in any way or form in any of the seven feasts. Neither do most Christians! Doesn’t that speak volumes?
My friends, I’ve been shot down a dozen times over my anti-Christmas stance, Never once in all my years of opposition to it (since the late70s) have I ever heard one single holy, and truth-bearing argument for it –ever. They are all spiritually short-sighted and lame.
The return of the Jews to their Jewish Messiah in salvation:
Numbers 33:50-55 Instructions for the conquest of Canaan: “Moses, speak to the children of Israel and say to them: When you have crossed the Jordan into the land of Canaan, then you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, destroy all their engraved stones, destroy all their moulded images and demolish all their high places...but if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then it shall be that those who let remain, shall be irritants in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they shall harass you in the land where you dwell.”
Joshua 7:13 “...Thus says the Lord God of Israel: There is an accursed thing in your midst O Israel; you cannot stand before your enemies until you take away the accursed thing from among you.”
When the Jews return to their land, they are to return in cleanliness and not with the traditions of the Gentiles, which is what got them banished and dispersed in the first place.”
Ezekiel 36:25 “Then (in their return), I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols.”
Ezekiel 44:23 “They shall teach My people the difference between the holy and the unholy, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.”
As they return to the land, as we well know, there’s been an ongoing onslaught of attacks on them by all manner of anti-Semites.
The same is true as they return to the Lord for salvation. There is a host of anti-Semites, including many Christmas supporting Christians just waiting to entrap the Jews again. Of course they don’t see Christmas as entrapment.
Jeremiah 51:45 “My people get out of the midst of her (Babylon) and let everyone deliver himself from the fierce anger of the Lord.”
Zephaniah 1:4 “...Against the inhabitants of Jerusalem, I will cut off every trace of Baal (Babylon) from this place, the names of the idolatrous priests, with the pagan priests.
Deuteronomy 12:30-31 “Take heed to yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed before you, and that you do not enquire after their gods, saying ‘How did these nations serve their gods? I also will do likewise.’ You shall not worship the Lord your God in that way...”
In all these things we are to seek the truth. That doesn’t mean we are to put others down who haven’t seen it yet. The motivation to put others down is wrong, but at the same time, we dare not join in the error if we have the revelation of truth.
There is a much greater condemnation upon pastors, teachers and leaders, especially when they have the knowledge of the truth and support a mixture with error.
2 Corinthians 6:17 “Come out and be separate, don’t touch what is unclean and I will receive you...”
Revelation 18:4 “Come out of her (Babylon the great) lest you share in her sins and receive her plagues.”
►What an incredibly powerful and spectacular verse this is below!!
2 Kings 17:32-41 “...Priests of the high places sacrificed in the shrines of the high places. They feared the Lord, yet served their own gods according to the rituals of the nations...to this day they continue practicing their former rituals; they do not fear the Lord... also their children and their children’s children have continued doing as their fathers did even to this day.”
►In the two verses below we see protection and blessing offered in keeping from evil:
Deuteronomy 23:9 “When the army goes out against your enemies, then keep yourself from every wicked thing.”
Psalm 24:3-4 “Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? It is he who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the Lord.”
►This discourse in the two verses below is a real shocker. It so perfectly sums up the rebellious heart of the modern church, led by modern wolves. Note how the ears (hearts) of these people are hardened as a result:
Jeremiah 6:16-19 “Stand in the ways and ask for the ancient paths, where the good (holy) way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’ Also I set watchmen over you, saying, ‘listen to the sound of the trumpet!’ But they said, ‘We will not listen.’ Therefore hear you nations and know, O congregation, what is among them. Hear O earth! Behold I will certainly bring calamity on this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not heeded My words, nor My law, but rejected it.”
Isaiah 30:1-3 “Woe to the rebellious children, says the Lord, who take counsel but not of Me and who devise plans, but not of My Spirit, that they may add sin to sin; who walk to go down to Egypt (type of the world), and have not asked My advice, to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shadow of Egypt. Therefore the strength of Pharaoh shall be your shame, and trust in the shadow of Egypt shall be your humiliation.”
Isaiah 30:10-14 (Amp) “They say to the seers ‘See not; and to the prophets, prophecy not what is right; speak to us smooth things, prophecy deceitful illusions. Get out of the true way, turn aside out of the path, cease holding up before us the Holy One of Israel. Therefore thus says the Holy One of Israel, because you despise and spurn My word and trust in cunning and oppression (of the righteous), in crookedness and perverseness, and rely on them; Therefore this guilt shall be to you as a broken high wall and ready to fall, whose crash will come suddenly and swiftly, in an instant.”
Opening the salvation-door for the Jews:
Isaiah 43:12 There was no foreign god among you; therefore you are My witnesses says the Lord.”
So, Mr. Minister of the gospel, you think you are God’s own witness? This may be so – I honour you if so. If you have not got rid of the foreign gods of Babylon – you are no witness of the Lord, no matter what you say and think – especially to Israel.
As a minister or ministry, are you opening the door for the Jews or slamming it shut in their face!
The messages to seven churches in the Revelation reveal God’s assessment of the church. The church of Thyatira is believed by most (including me) to refer to the orthodox churches like the Catholics, Anglicans and other orthodox churches, which are all filled with Babylonian practise. This church is greatly condemned by God.
There are only two of the seven that are just right with Him.
The church of Philadelphia is highly commended by God. But look at one of the reasons:
Revelation 3:7 “These things says He who is holy, He who is true, He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts and shuts and no one opens.”
What is the “key of David?” It is revealed right here:
Isaiah 22:21-22 “...He shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and to the house of Judah. The key of the house of David I will lay on his shoulder; so he shall open and no one shut and shut and no one open...”
Do you see it, do you see it? I hope you do. This is speaking of the call of the Messianic church, which is to the Jew and Gentile. It speaks of ministries or ministers with a father-heart for the inhabitants of Jerusalem – the Jews.
This church would obviously be Hebraic in character, rejecting all forms of paganism. Note that the promise includes the very real God-given authority to “open spiritual doors and close others”. Note also that in verse 10, this church is promised rapture!
The message of the true church to the Jews:
Hanukah, the festival of light is appropriately named. Christmas is the festival of darkness, celebrating the false, Catholic, Gentile Jesus created by the Catholics.
Babylon for the Jew represents captivity. Christmas for the Jew, and a growing number of Christians, represents Babylon and the Catholic church.
There is absolutely no denying that most of the modern church has more of the character and flavour of Babylon in its midst than that of the early church before the advent of Catholicism.
The simple display of Hebraic items goes a very long way to characterising that church and making it a welcoming place for Jews.
The end purpose of Christmas is to destroy the Jews.
Traditions become a comfort zone, then a secure prison, a binding force backed by pure legalism. There’s nothing wrong with some traditions, but as soon as you enter the spiritual dimensions, you are dealing with spiritual powers and forces.
Beloved friends, and Jewish brothers and sisters to be: As Moses called you out and you came out, and as you were finally released from Babylonian captivity – DO NOT GO BACK into Babylon or the participation of any paganism in the church.
Many people in the church love you and would die for you, but many love themselves supremely and want you to die for them! Those enslaved themselves by Christian paganism hate you, no matter what they say. Lurking behind the spirit of Christmas is Satan himself waiting to trap you again.
If you want to be right with your Lord as He lifts the veil from your eyes keep yourselves separate from the occult practises of Christmas and Easter.
Some powerful resources:
Jeremiah 23:25-26 “I have heard what the prophets have said; who prophesy lies in My name, saying, ‘I have dreamed, I have dreamed!’ ‘How long will this be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies? Indeed they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart, who try to make My people forget My name by their dreams which everyone tells his neighbour, as their father forgot My name for Baal.’
