- Iraq (the home of Babylon) is reported to be lining up to make peace with Israel.
- There will be no talk of, or deal relating to the Temple Mount at this signing.

18th September 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Watch the watchmen:
But first: Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s prayer meeting, “The Return” will be held on the Washington Mall, Washington DC, on the 26th September. This day is known as Shabbat Shuvah. Interestingly the Bible reading for the day is, “Return O Israel, to the Lord your God.”(Hosea 14:2-10 Micah 7: 18-20 Joel 2:15-27) It’s all centred on a global call for the church to return to the ways of God, and for Israel’s return to Messiah.
Today is the beginning of Rosh Hashanah / Feast of Trumpets, depending on the sighting of the new moon. ●This is NOT the rapture time and start of the tribulation.
The current peace efforts between Israel and some Arab nations is NOT the final antichrist peace deal - not by any means. What they are is incremental peace efforts.
This is NOT the “peace and safety, then sudden destruction” verse coming about. That verse relates to the Daniel 9:27 peace deal and the tribulation.
But these things collectively are important in that they present a new dawn for the Middle East. The knock-on effects and influence of these peace efforts are causing others to want to jump on the band wagon too.
Because these are such critical and dangerous times, this is a more important time than ever to be led correctly by men of God who are led by the Spirit and have a history of accuracy and stability. There are many amongst the riff raff.
So many wannabe watchmen and teachers are leading people astray with inaccurate, wrong pronouncements. Some are so outrageous! A watchman of the Lord is not one who watches for possibilities. He knows where to look and what to watch for and is led by the Spirit of God, therefore he is right.
I was given some “100% for sure” information in charts and numbers and various things as to why this would be the rapture time – for sure 100%! It didn’t sit right. When checking it out myself nothing added up!
Because a blind, always-wrong watchman says something is a sign; that does not make it so, by any means.
Being wrong destroys your authority and credibility, and damages the prophetic word and the faith of others, especially new believers.
Being wrong on major biblical things means one thing for sure – absolutely: You have not heard from God and you speak your own opinions.
The Spirit led teacher / watchman will have a history of godly stability and is therefore trustworthy.
Discernment is more critical than ever in the face of fast growing deception.
Ezra 3:13 (Temple rebuilt) “The people could not discern the noise of the shout of joy from the noise of the weeping of the people...”
Error becomes an immovable mountain if not dealt with, because it is formed and secured on the pillar of pride.
Spirit led, and inspired knowledge, understanding and wisdom endures and produces godly fruit.
One way to know a false teacher: When brought to correction, they will turn on you because you won’t join them in propping up their pride!
The Spirit of God in your heart is the umpire. He brings peace when you are on the right track. But you need the baptism of the Spirit. If not your umpire is you, yourself.
The condition of the end-time church:
There is a powerful prophetic message for the end-time church hidden in the messages to the seven churches in Revelation 2 & 3. They were seven historic churches. All seven contain truth for us, but prophetically, they also plot the course of church history.
The first three churches, Ephesus, Smyrna and Pergamos speak of the times gone by. The last four plot the course of the end time church and run concurrently. They are Thyatira, representing the Catholic and other orthodox churches. (They are cast into the tribulation) Sardis is the church that has a “name to live but is dead”. They are told that Lord will come upon them as a thief and they won’t know when! This represents the denominational Spirit-less churches. (With a few exceptions) Then comes the glorious church – the church of Philadelphia. They have the key of David, opening the doors to the Jews. (Isaiah 22:22) This church keeps the word and is promised to be kept out of the tribulation. Finally we have the lukewarm church of Laodicea, which is spiritually blind. God “vomits them out of His mouth.” “Laodicea”: Strong’s G2993, “Laodikeia” From two root words: ‘Laos’ = people and ‘Dike’ =Ruling. This is the people ruled” or “people/self opinionated church.
The pictures below show all that remains of Laodicea today. The Spirit of God flew away from this church and God spat them out of His mouth. (Revelation 3:16) The pillars still standing represent truth, but all else is gone.
1 Timothy 3:15 (Amp) “You know how people must conduct themselves in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and stay – the prop and support of the truth.”
So, what we see here is a very powerful and accurate picture of the end-time church. Some of it is the walking dead. Some are a horror of evil. Some are cast into the tribulation, spat out and condemned. And right in the midst is the church who keeps and loves the word and is pro-Israel.
Bear in mind that there is a terrible, tragic church and a glorious, growing powerful church side by side in these days. Don’t get tunnel vision for just one side of the coin.
The Bible speaks of a great end-time revival (the latter rain) in the last days. (Joel 2:23, Hosea 6:3) and in many other verses.
A major prophetic mark of the times is increasing deception in the church. You can’t have increasing deception without increasing deceivers and that’s where the problem lies.
Satan used deception to try to stamp out the early church because he knew it would wreck his kingdom. Now we have the same scenario again. Sometimes you have to be severe in your dealings.
Acts 13:9-11 “Then Saul, also called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit looked intently at him and said, ‘O full of all deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all unrighteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord? And now indeed the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you shall be blind, not seeing the sun for a time, and immediately a dark mist fell upon him...”
It is most important to know prophetic things to come, but also the timing of those things, to avoid deception. You must see with spiritual eyes today.
A Spirit-led and inspired watchman / teacher is always restrained in what he sees and says. He is led by the restrainer.
We are now at the start of the new Hebrew year 5781. It will end and change to 5782 on Rosh Hashanah 2021. That is September 7th - 8th 2021. That’s a very important date!!
This year, 5781 is going to be year like no other. It’s going to be a wild time of stress, strain and pressure. But in the midst there will be islands of peace amongst the pillars of truth.
The good news is that we are on the verge of great revival. We are seeing it in many nations of the east. Of course there will always be churches deteriorating and dying.
Many of those who have gone off into a ditch will repent and return. Many will continue to slip and slide further away.
As we enter the beginning of these wild times, I want to assure you that The Prophetic Scroll will be your place of spiritual stability and rest.
Edition 346: Special Edition. January
The truth behind “Settlements” and “Occupation”
The truth behind “Settlements” and “Occupation”
Is the whole world, led by the mass media, right or wrong on the so-called “occupation” of “territories” in Israel and the so-called Israeli “illegal settlements”? East Jerusalem today is also considered to be part of the “occupation”.
The whole world is about to be rocked by this single issue!
The term “occupied territories” or “West Bank” is a media-created and disseminated lie. The areas are called Judea and Samaria, and have been since biblical days. I will refer to both in this article.
This edition contains some vital information that if Presidents, Prime Ministers, and military leaders knew about, it would change their course! One day they will know all about it – but too late!
This edition contains the very causes of WW111, and one of the major reasons for the soon-coming tribulation period.
You had better know all about this now because it’s about to be blasted onto centre-stage of Bible prophecy. It will set you up, even as a believer, as God’s supreme enemy, or His friend. It may well decide your eternal future.
Many reading this will be absolutely shocked to see just how far and deeply into the heart and will of Satan they have descended. Many will be shocked to see that God knew it all along and He warned and warned and warned! Many will fall in repentance.
Destruction of the nations is on the agenda. The mass deaths of billions will soon occur. It can’t be prevented, but you can prevent yourself from becoming one of the victims. Please do!
The world is accountable for its own soon coming destruction in the tribulation period.
An Islamic truth amidst all the lies:
The media has created the world’s biggest lie ever. They have surpassed the propaganda lies of Hitler. They are joined by most of the world’s politicians, and the world’s leaders, teachers and ministers.
Amazingly, The Israeli / Palestinian issue has a big central, in-your-face fact behind it, that the mass-media would never dare mention (because it is the truth). This is what is contained in the Quran.
The Muslim Quran says that “Allah gave the land of Israel to the Jews and will restore them to it at the end of days.” You don’t believe me? – Look it up!
Of course we know the hundreds of Bible verses declaring that the land of Israel was given by God to the Jews. This includes all of Jerusalem.
The great, big, spectacular cause behind the world’s biggest problem today!
Why is this little nation, Israel the centre of the world? Why is it always in the news? Why is it soon to be the cause of World War? Why is it the subject of the “ancient, eternal hatred”? Why will this nation and the surrounding issues be the cause of the destruction of nations and billions of people?
**Now, you had better listen up. (Please read the following passage a few times!)
The reason is actually simple. It is because God has chosen to bring the Jews back to their land in spiritual blindness, then He will open their eyes to their Jewish Messiah and then use them, the Jews, to bring salvation to the Gentile world.
Did you spot the hidden truth? Evangelism is the job of the church, but in the tribulation period we see that it is exclusively the job of the Jews! I hope you understand why this is the case!
If the world, led by Satan’s mass-media, get’s their way, the opposite of all this will take place. The Jews will be eradicated, driven out and Islam will take root in all of Israel. From where Islam will be taken to the world, creating a so-called 1000-year rule of Islamic “peace.”
All of these things should be ringing a million bells in your head, including Hitler bells.
►So the bottom line is this: It's salvation to be taken to the world by saved Jews, or Islam taken to the world by Muslims, with the Jews eliminated. Are more bells ringing?
(Salvation in the tribulation period will not be the same as it is now for those who make up the born-again church, but it will still be distinct.)
In all of this we have the eternal conflict between God’s word, and the will of the devil represented by the nations of the world, the media, Islam and many churches.
“This is all rather outrageous Joel” you say. Okay let’s see what the Bible says:
Isaiah 42:16 “I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them...” (Salvation)
Micah 7:8-9 “Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; when I fall I will arise, when I sit in darkness the Lord will be a light to me...He will bring me forth to the light, and I will see His righteousness”. (Salvation)
Romans 11:12-15 “If their (Jews) fall is riches for the world and their failure is riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness...If their (Jews) being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance (Salvation) be, but life from the dead.”
Isaiah 60:2-3 “Behold darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you (Jews), and His glory (Salvation) will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light (Jews), and kings to the brightness of your rising.”
Zechariah 8:22-23 “Many peoples and strong nations shall come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the Lord. In those days, ten men of every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, ‘Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.” (Salvation)
Isaiah 49:6 “I also will give you (Israel) as a light to the Gentles, that you should be My salvation to the ends of the earth.”
There are dozens of similar verses, but I think you get the picture!
This is so important, let me summarise it again: The purpose, plan and will of God is to bring His people, the Jews back into their land, lift the veil of spiritual blindness upon them and then use them as His chief evangelists to bring salvation to the Gentile world.
That’s why this entire issue is so important and so hated, even now. But it will come to pass exactly as stated.
The problem is that those who don’t know the Bible can’t see the end from the beginning! They live in a world of “me now” and “I think!”
So, the “occupation”, the “settlements”, the dividing of Jerusalem, and the entire Israeli / Palestinian issue is all Satan’s smokescreen to bring Islam to the world and get rid of God’s call upon the Jews.
God’s plan for the land of Israel and the devils:
PA leader, Abbas says; 2017 will be the year of Palestinian statehood! Of course this is the exact opposite of God’s word! Why does the mass media never ever speak of this? It is simply because they are the devils disciples, and his will they do.
If this headline came to pass it means that Yeshua, the Jew of Jews, would be banished from Israel.
Genesis 17:7-8 “I will establish My covenant between Me and you (Israel) and your descendants after you, in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you. I will give to you and your descendants the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan (Israel) as an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.”
Note in the verse above that “all” of the land of Israel has been given by God to the Jews. Note again the statements by PA leader Abbas, above this.
In dealing with this subject a lot depends on where you begin. If you begin with what you think – you are a prime idiot. If you start with what the world thinks, again you are an idiot and fool. But if you start with what God thinks and does as revealed in His word – you are on the right course.
The Jewish claim now supported by Christian Zionists, is that the Palestinians are an “invented people and state.” If that is so, who invented them and why?
The West Bank is a lie. The green line identifying the border was never a border-line, it was a cease-fire line and nothing more. Today it has been elevated to an official political border.
►It is this invented people the Palestinians who are the settlers and occupiers in Israel.Their aim according to their own numerous statements is eventually to take over all of Jerusalem and Israel.
What Islam is doing now is absolutely incredible and astounding! The Jews have had a clear, well-proven, well-documented, archaeologically fact-based, history-packed, totally undeniable 3000 year old ownership and presence in the land of Israel, authorised by God and written in the Bible in numerous covenant promises and comments.
It is also written into the Quran as Jewish-owned!
Now Islam and the UN, using the Hitler / mass-media tactic of “Repeat the lie as often as possible and eventually the people will believe it,” Comes along and says “Jerusalem is ours.”
The “occupation”, “settlements” and the “great catastrophe:”
The Palestinians call Israeli Independence, “The great catastrophe.” This is what they call God’s choice.
Let’s see what the Bible says about who is to occupy which land:
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, (Jews) to give to them and to their descendents after them.”
1Chronicles 23:25 “David said, The Lord God of Israel has given rest to His people, (Jews) that they may dwell in Jerusalem forever.”
1Chronicles 16:17-18 “The covenant which God made with Abraham and his son Isaac and confirmed to Jacob as a statute, to Israel for an everlasting covenant, saying, to you I will give the land of Canaan as the allotment of your inheritance.”
Zechariah 2:12 “The Lord will take possession of Judah as His inheritance in the Holy Land and will again choose Jerusalem.”
Nehemiah 2:19-20 (Nehemiah comes to Jerusalem and views the wall to be rebuilt) “But when Sanballat the Horronite, Tobiah the Ammonite official and Geshem the Arab heard of it they laughed us to scorn and despised us saying, ‘What is this thing that you are doing? Will you rebel against the king?’ So I answered them and said to them, ‘The God of heaven Himself will prosper us; therefore we His servants will arise and build, but you have no heritage or memorial in Jerusalem.”
Note that the Arabs mocking the Jews, Nehemiah and his party, in the verse above, are told in no uncertain terms that they have “no heritage (inheritance) or memorial in Jerusalem.” No memorial in Jerusalem! What is this? And it’s right out of the Bible! Of course this has major prophetic implications for today!
Zechariah 2:4-5 “‘For I’, says the Lord ‘will be a wall of fire around her (Jerusalem) and I will be the glory in her midst.’”
Do you want to mess with Jerusalem – media, Muslims, church and the world? Read that verse above again. I hope you have fire insurance! Actually it won’t help you!
Psalm 125:2-3 “As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds His people from this time forth and forever. For the sceptre of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous.”
Most commentators, including myself, believe that this “sceptre of wickedness” is Islam.
The single cause of the world’s biggest problem is about to explode. It is not Jewish “settlements” or “occupation” it is the Palestinian desire to settle in and occupy Jerusalem and Israel and to destroy the Jews and the salvation that they will bring to the world.
Now the mass-media is starting to use phrases condemning Israel like, “perpetual occupation”, planting these lying seeds in the minds of the gullible masses.
I see a Palestinian spokesman on CNN saying the “settlements” are a “war crime.”
Have a look at this brief clip of CNN exposing their short-sighted ignorance: HERE
Like it or not, the mass-media is now the official spokesman of Islam and the Palestinians claims to the land. They are in fact Satan’s spokesman.
What has happened recently is the mass-media has delegitimized themselves. A new spiritual force of evil has taken over them all. Beware of anything the mass-media says on Israel!!!
And the disgusting wolves behind many pulpits say nothing. Their silence has condemned them.
There is one and only one way for peace in the Middle East and Israel in particular, and that’s for God’s will and choice to be done.
Today the Bible has been “cast down in the street” (Isaiah 59:14) and rejected, so what do the people do? They turn to the mass-media for their information and guiding and its devilish authority.
The lies of the media are designed to delegitimize Israel in the eyes of the world, but they do not realise that they are trying to delegitimize God! Talk about getting yourself burnt!
The immovable landmark:
●●●Deuteronomy 19:14 “You shall not remove your neighbour’s landmark (border), which the men of old have set, in your inheritance which you will inherit in the land that the Lord is giving you to possess.”
This incredible verse above refers to the land given by God through eternal covenant to the tribes of Israel. If you look up the commentaries on this verse, you’ll see that it has a dual application and is prophetic for today as well. The verse means that no one is to mess with Israel’s borders and change them. There is no such thing as the “occupation”, or the West Bank or “settlements.”
A parallel verse to this one above specifically curses anyone who moves Israel’s borders!
Deuteronomy 27:17 “Cursed is the one who moves his neighbour’s landmark (border). And all the people shall say Amen,”
How can Jews “occupy” their own land? All of Israel and Jerusalem is God-given land – to the Jews!
Malachi 1:3-4 “I have laid his (Esau/Edom-origin of Palestinians) mountains waste. Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘They may build but I will throw down; they shall be called the Territory of Wickedness, and the people with whom the Lord will have indignation forever. Your eyes shall see, and you shall say, The Lord is magnified beyond the border of Israel.”
Amos 9:15 “I will plant them (Jews) in their land, and no longer shall they be pulled from the land I have given them, says the Lord God.”
This amazing verse above implies that once Israel is back in her land, that’s it. She will never again be uprooted from the land. It doesn’t mean there won’t be huge resistance to it.
Isaiah 41:11 “Behold, all those who were incensed against you (Israel) shall be ashamed and disgraced; they shall be nothing, and those who strive with you shall perish.”
Genesis 17:18-21 “Abraham said to God, ‘O that Ishmael (origin of Arabs) might live before You!’ Then God: “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.”
Romans 11:29 “The gifts and calling of God (upon the Jews) are irrevocable.”
The Trump Presidency:
What about the new Trump administration and these issues? The nutshell version is this: Trump will freak out the Muslims, the Muslims will freak out the Jews around the world and Jews will go home to Israel. God will say, “thank you very much, now we can get moving!” Okay, I know I’ve said that before, but that is likely to be just what will happen.
The Palestinians say that only the hand-over of the “territories” and cessation of “settlements” will bring peace. Russia says only direct talks will bring peace. It’s not worth reporting on what the UN says. We still wait for what the new US administration will say, but we have a pretty good idea.
God says, only obedience to My word will bring peace! Guess where my choice lies?
The pressure today is to kill the call of God. Pharaoh, Nebuchadnezzar, Pilate, Constantine, all the popes, Hitler, Obama and other world leaders have all discovered the hard way, that you can’t kill the call of God on the Jew or Gentile!
Amazingly the world and its poisonous puppet, the media think that settlements and the occupation is an obstacle to peace! It is an obstacle to the total Islamic take-over of Israel. The very words of the media are a cursed part of the cause of the coming war.
The GREAT pre-tribulation rapture proof!
And it is great indeed!
Since the late 70s, I’ve written out by hand every single verse dealing with the salvation of the Jews. (Some are presented here above). They are all consistent in one major theme. The majority of the Jews are saved in the tribulation period. There are some 14 million Jews in the world.
Evangelism is the job of the church. Yet in not one of these verses, and there are dozens, is the church present. So who brings the masses of Jews to salvation? If the church is not here in the tribulation period, who is it that does the church’s job?
Who gets the Jews saved first before they can bring salvation to the Gentile world?
Well, guess who? It’s God Himself and His angels. Here it is:
Ezekiel 34:11-13 “Thus says the Lord God: Indeed I Myself will search for My sheep and seek them out...I will bring them out from the peoples and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land; I will feed them on the mountains of Israel, in the valleys and in all the places (Lit= settlements) of the country.”
1Chronicles 17:21-22 “Who is like Your people Israel, the one nation on the earth, whom God Himself went to redeem for Himself as a people...for You have made Your people Israel Your very own people forever, and You Lord have become their God.”
After the Jews are saved, why is it that the Jews take the Jewish Messiah to the Gentile world for salvation in the tribulation? Have a guess!
You may have noticed that very few Jews are saved in regular churches. Most are saved in Messianic Fellowships or as a result of their own searching.
It is the Jews and not the church that act as agents for God’s salvation to the world in the tribulation. The reason is because the church is not here during that time.
Have you ever wondered why the Jews are the main subject of Satan’s wrath in the tribulation and not the church? The answer is the same as above!
The tragedy of the coming peace deal:
The coming peace covenant of Daniel 9:27, by its very nature must break God’s existing eternal covenant with Israel. It will happen and it will throw the whole world into God’s wrath – the tribulation.
Here it is right out of the mouth of God:
Isaiah 24:1-6 “Behold, the Lord makes the earth empty and distorts its surface. It shall be; as with the people, so with the priest...The earth mourns and fades away, the world languishes and fades away; the haughty (proud) people of the earth languish. The earth is defiled under its inhabitants...they have broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore the curse has devoured the earth...therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned and few are left.”
If you support the Palestinian / Islamic claims to Israel, you are a Jew hater. Don’t say – “no I’m not.” Read this edition again. You are a Jew hater and killer. In fact you are a God killer and Satan lover. The tragic thing though, is that you can’t kill God or His choice. You only kill yourself in the process!
Talk about shooting yourself in the foot!
This is all just like Satan’s operations in the believer’s lives. He comes in and settles. Then he occupies ever greater areas and then takes over completely. Unless of course, you exercise your God-given rights to recognise him and cast him out!
“Give no place to the devil” (Ephesians 4:27).
The goal of Islam is world domination through deception, terror and hate, backed by the mass-media.
The goal of God is to save the world through love and life, while hated by the mass media.
Islam is the settler and occupier, creeping in under the mask of peace, to meet its destruction on the hills of Israel.
The Palestinians are Islam’s smokescreen.
Much of the church has abandoned Israel and will do so more and more in the coming times. Will you be one of these spineless devil-sympathisers?
How wonderful our Lord is to have blessed so many people with the truth to lead, direct and comfort them in a world of error, deception and the hogwash opinions of the masses.
My friends these are severe and critically important times.
I took this picture in the Drakensberg Mountains.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
