|This ministry has a distinct kingdom vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for Israel and the church. My position is pre-trib! I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share with you the great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God, to bless Israel and her people and the kingdom of God.|
►We have now reached 47 million regular visitors.
►Next Edition, Lord willing: "Meanderings and musings of my mind."
Why the pre-trib rapture is the only view that adds up and works.
- US Democratic Party diplomat calls for Nations with a Christian influence to come against Israel, saying “Jesus Christ came to save the whole world from the Jews...Jews are not chosen!”
- Report: “Obama tried to give the Golan to Syria.” But then came Trump who “gave” the Golan to Israel! And the difference is = The Bible!
- US Dems take followers further and further away from all things related to a nation under God.
- Russia warns Israel: "No more attacks on Syria or we will strike back."
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose of this report is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
War drums and trumpets:
Firstly I would like to really thank all those who have recently donated to this ministry. I must say I was amazed at the incredible response from so many. Thank you very much for your blessing to the kingdom of God, above all.
There’s a risk in giving out names that some will feel left out if I don’t name them. So please know that you are all being thanked and will be rewarded. You have encouraged me greatly with your gratitude. You are special! We go on to ever increasing glory!
I give you my assurance that I will continue to give you my best, in spite of wanting to go and live under a tree in the desert sometimes.
Please keep The Prophetic Scroll in your prayer, in that it stays open and unrestricted in these dangerous days. Also keep it as your essential go-to place for what is really happening, and for your deep spiritual growth.
The rumbling war drums:
Drum beats have many classifications. We have blues beat, disco beat, the jazz swing, the motown groove and more. But we also have a particular drum beat of war and battle. The drums of war actually originate from the repeating drum beat of the shaman or witchdoctor.
A certain drum beat would mean either dance or get ready for war. The drum beat would stimulate and strengthen the body and forge a sense of unity by the beat. They would unite the human and the spirit world. The drums of war were also referred to as the drums of death, especially when combined with trumpets.
I said all of that just for this: Can you hear the drums of war rolling? Can you hear the crescendo of drums and trumpets of great conflict echoing through the atmosphere?
This is where we are now. The drums and trumpets are only for those with ears to hear. Others would be wise to listen to those with ears to hear.
The terrible war machine of the nations is warming up to take control of the sleeping nations, who are led by the aged and wrinkled of mind, the pacifists and the true enemies of real liberty and freedom.
Russia is beating the war-drums as she threatens Israel with attack for attacking Iranian targets in Syria. Syria is beating new war drums covered with the ash of long-standing war. Iran is beating the war drum against Israel again, again, again!
Biden and his party are asleep to it all, including the blonde half-baked fairy from hell whose grand burning desire is to change the gender of kids.
It’s not just the US. Europe is worse in many areas.
It seems that insanity has suddenly been let out of the cage and is infecting the world so fast. Here is one of the succinct verses about those who have forsaken the Lord:
Deuteronomy 28:28 “The Lord will strike you with madness and blindness and confusion of mind.”
In the old days we would fight over God’s creative beauty - a girl, and the girls would fight over us – Oh the good ole-days!
The bigger wars are fought over property, religion, political systems and the like. But there is really only one war that is of importance and that is the war to eliminate God’s beautiful creative purpose for Israel. It comes in many guises, but that is the underlying reason. It’s purely spiritual. It is the devil against God, at the end of the day.
So now we sit on the brink of war – the big one! Drums are rolling, trumpets are blowing and madmen from hell are arising, struck with blinding confusion and their weapons of annihilation tucked into their big-bird, metal wings.
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall; Humpty Dumpty had a great fall, because an atom bomb blew him to smithereens. And all the king’s horses and all the king’s men took seven years to clean up the remnants of poor Humpty. What fun!
I can hear the drums of drama but I also hear the trumpet calling me to go and live under a tree in the desert! (Move over lions.)
The great war for God’s son – Israel, is prophesied. (Exodus 4:22-23) It’s all getting pretty hot in here. You need to know these things. You need to know why all things and people of God are targets.
People with no knowledge of the living God are fools, and easy to manipulate and turn into cannon fodder for every dumb gun in town.
You need to be anchored in the truth.
True living is living in truth.
If you try to befriend Satan and appease him, and walk in peace with him, you will automatically, by default, set yourself up as an enemy of God and you will pay the price!
Yes, Israel will miss it again and fall under punishment again, but the most stupid thing you can do is come against Israel in the bigger, overall picture.
Biden prepares to “kill” the Second Amendment right to bear arms in the US. Israel observes and compares this to Haman’s actions to try to destroy the Jews. Biden befriends the enemies of the west and of Israel in Yemen and Iran steps right in!
There was a time when God overlooked the ignorance of stupid, dumb politicians and people, but that day is gone (Acts 17:30, Acts 14:16)
Here’s a verse that should blow a lot more than your socks off:
Esther 9:1-2 “On the day that the enemies of the Jews had hoped to overpower them, the opposite occurred, in that the Jews themselves overpowered those who hated them...No one could withstand them because the fear of them fell upon all people.”
Take note, I say again take note, of the gravity of this verse above!!
The enemies of God and his son Israel, are united under Satan. The political parties, churches, inter-faith organisations and false religions of the world already have an unwritten unity between them – a hell bound unity!
The unity between true born-again believers is a unity based on truth and not lovey-dovey feelings.
As a believer, your culture must change! Your character and your personality must change as you grow in God. If not you will end up going with the flow of the wind.
Edition 353: March 1st 2017
Sky signs, earth signs, heart signs!
Sky signs, earth signs, heart signs:
The Bible talks of many end-time signs in the sky relating to our Lord’s coming. It speaks of numerous signs on the earth and in the world. It speaks of the condition of the heart of man in these times, both of the saved and the unsaved.
This edition is to inform you, help you, bless you and warn you of the pitfalls and dangers now and in the short time ahead, which are all escalating and intensifying.
Impending, ominous, doom looms large for many, and they can’t see it. At the same time, great joy, glory, majesty, honour, triumph and exaltation from our Lord is fast approaching for many.
Signs are to warn us, but also to show us which way to go. Signs are not to be ignored as most of the church does today, thanks to their blind guides. But we must not get the signs wrong either and go off in the wrong direction.
Thankfully we have seen that the Bible signs and prophecies that have already come to pass and been fulfilled, have done so perfectly with not one miss. So we can absolutely trust every word. If we are on the right road, it will be seen and be evident in the hearts of those on the journey.
The hearts of those who are right with God and on the right road will be full of good fruit and their lives will in fact be a banner and a sign to the world as well.
A bad or wrong heart will absolutely get you to see the wrong thing in the signs and go the wrong way, taking others with you.
1 Chronicles 26:16 (Temple Gatekeepers) “...At the West Gate, on the ascending highway you shall have watchmen opposite watchmen.”
Psalm 119:148 “My eyes are awake through the night watches, that I may meditate (know) on Your word.”
What is most important is to know and understand that we are to be watchful for all the signs. We are to know the signs in the sky, the signs in the world and in our hearts!
There is a very great danger evident in so many right now. I’ve mentioned it before. It is that too many are putting all their eggs in one basket. Far too many are looking at the coming signs in the sky, specifically the Revelation 12 sign, with tunnel vision.
If the earth and world signs are not running parallel to the Revelation 12 sign, as we approach the time – forget any message in the sky!
I am watching the Revelation 12 sign cautiously. I have not thrown it out, but I see some very real dangers that many are simply ignoring.
Personally, in the past I’ve looked at, and presented you with rapture-time scenarios and possibilities. With every one, I’ve said that they are possibilities and, if memory serves, I’ve also said just what I’m saying here now: All the ducks must be lined up in a row!
Amazingly, so many in the past have found this or that great secret as to when they think the rapture will be, and held to it right up to the day – but the other main signs have been missing! They all end up with a bit more than egg on the face!
I recently saw a video clip by some fool-Jezebel type woman who claimed that Nibiru would hit the earth this last Christmas day, but it would be okay because the rapture would happen right then too.
The incredible thing was that so many deceived, blind, fools bought right into her satanic garbage.
When something is of our Lord, there will be confirmations in the Bible itself as well as amongst certain types of mature believers. I can’t stress how important this is.
Let me start by offending many. If you look at those who confirm, accept and promote the Nibiru / Planet X deception, you are more gullible than you can imagine. Only a certain type of gullible, person falls into those traps with an occult source.
Most of the Nibiru supporters have no idea of the occult origins and involvement.
Many people are also falling into the trap of “private, personal interpretation”, relating to many other things, which is not only wrong, but forbidden in 2 Peter 1:20-21.
Look for what finds acceptance and bears witness with mature believers with a track record of stability and endurance. Beware of that which changes long accepted, Bible-proven interpretation. That's not to say a new revelation can't come along, but if it's of God it will be confirmed by the right people.
The Revelation 12 sign dangers:
There are a few big problems with the general interpretation of and application of the Revelation 12 sign, which require a lot of explanation, so I won’t go into it all now.
The biggest issue of all lies in the fact that the “great sign” of Revelation 12 may well turn out to be a supernatural sign and event in the sky and have nothing to do with any computer program called Stellarium or any other.
Many say that the Bethlehem star was a comet. I reject that. Many say that the darkness that fell when our Lord was crucified was an eclipse. Since when do eclipses last for nine hours? Both were supernatural events.
People don’t like that idea, because it takes them out the picture, and they like to have a natural, physical explanation for everything, so that they can put it to rest in their simple minds.
So, what I am saying is – be careful out there, don’t put your entire trust in one thing that may or may not turn out as expected.
I have said and will say again and again that all the other signs must be in place, and then we’ve got it – not before or without them all lining up.
The earth signs:
I have mentioned these signs in previous editions, so this is a brief overview of what must be in place at the same time as the sky signs.
By the way, the Bible says “I will not be negligent to remind you always of these things, though you know them...” (2 Peter 1:12) So, repetition and hearing things a few times is a good method of learning!
●A pre-tribulation rapture requires the start of the tribulation period as a new dispensation at the same time. There is no inter-dispensational time period – that’s biblically impossible.
Therefore we must have some sort of international peace agreement on the table ready for signing. That is a major world-sign. (Daniel 9:27, Daniel 11:21, 1 Thessalonians 5:3)
This coming peace treaty must be new and not some old agreement revived, as many teach. It must be new because it is a seven-year agreement. No other, like the Oslo Accord, or any other, was specifically a seven-year agreement.
All other older peace agreements are null and void because they were never ratified and would have to be re-negotiated, because so much has changed since.
There will be no rapture and no tribulation start without this major world-sign in place, no matter what any sign in the stars or anywhere else points to.
●We must see the ten-nation European confederacy with an eastern and western leg in place or at least close to being formed. It is required by prophecy soon into the tribulation.
●We must see the emergence of a one-world, one-currency, and one-religion system. These things don’t happen overnight. They are tribulation events, but must be at least in sight, being prepared at the tribulation start.
●We must see the preparations for the building of the Third Temple on the Temple Mount. It is required at mid-tribulation, so must be in sight well before.
There is very little time left for all of these signs to appear. Yes things can happen fast, but they need to happen very, very fast.
There are numerous other signs that need to be in place too.
Signs in the heart of man:
Proverbs 27:19 “...A man’s heart reveals the man.”
Perhaps the biggest end-time sign in the heart of man is pure deception!
A soft, broken and teachable heart is a pre-condition for seeing correctly and being led into all truth.
The end-time heart signs revealed in the Bible are: People being in love with themselves, in love with money, despisers of the ways of God, superficial, filled with great continuing and steadily worsening deception.
People will be worshipping the gods of Babylon and Baal and all its offshoots. People will ignore, or be ignorant of the word of God, even though it’s more available now than ever before, and is right in front of them!
A big and real end-time sign is more and more people becoming more and more involved in the occult, witchcraft, fortune telling, spiritism, sorcery, and the like. (Deuteronomy 18:9-12).
The Bible is the source of the signs we are interested in. But there are different levels of Bible understanding.
●Firstly there is the dead-letter version, which the Bible itself describes as spirit-less understanding. (2 Corinthians 3:6). This way has produced all the divisions we have in the dead denominational churches.
●Then there is spirit-led and informed understanding and interpretation, which is absolutely necessary. This is where our Lord proclaims that “He will show you things to come.” (John 16:13).
●Then there is the understanding coming from the living words of the living God speaking now in your own heart, which is only available to those who qualify and meet the conditions.
Job 28:12-28 “Where can wisdom (of and from God) be found? And where is the place of understanding? Man does not know its value, nor is it found in the land of the living. Behold the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom, and to depart from evil, that is understanding.”
Proverbs 9:10 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”
Psalm 25:14 “The secret counsel of the Lord is with those who fear Him and He will show them His covenant.”
Today we are in a world with no fear of God. The result is ignorance of God, presumption, man-made doctrines and idiots with no revelation knowledge of God.
No one can know God without the fear of God and this has many evidences in your life. In many respects, the fear of God compares to taking up your own cross. Today many have removed the cross and others have modified it to suit themselves.
The cross of self-denial is before all believers. You can take it up or flee it.
Cross-less Christianity is a modern curse and a sign of hearts being far from the living God.
In all of our hearts there is a throne of pride and a cross lying on the ground in front of us. You have to get off your throne and bow down to pick up the cross.
We must go through the soul-agony of loss of all our ideas and idols. We must become detached and removed from our self-will and exaltation. We must be silent before God and shut up, before we can know and speak His revelation-word.
To really encounter the living God is shattering. It breaks you down, so that He can lift you up without all your garbage, presumption, sin and un-holiness.
Job 42:5 “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my (spiritual) eye sees You and I abhor myself and repent in dust and ashes.”
We are entering a time of universal darkness, emptiness, barrenness and dryness. But there are those who hunger and thirst for the purity, holiness and righteousness of God. They will be filled.
Self and sin and the world’s ways is the veil that hides the face of God. Only the cross breaks these enemies in our lives.
Many want to be saved but won’t surrender fully. They end up as twilight Christians half in the shadows. Their sick religion offers plenty and demands nothing.
The truth they have soon erodes away as it must into the mist of this universal darkness and a religious, hazy half-light. It is like lukewarm light! It will poison and kill you!
The more at home you are in this world, the greater your problem and the greater the work you will have to do to die to it.
Many of today’s “successful” preachers are failures and leading others to failure. They teach that a Ferrari is valuable.
In many cases, the problem is not so much the signs or the content of the message, but the messenger! They are not messengers of the cross! Many are superficial frauds, looking for the approval of man. I always automatically reject the messages from these types, without question.
Most times I can tell in the first sentence whether a person is to be switched off or not.
Israel as a signs:
***Isaiah 66:19 “I will set a sign among them (Jews)...they shall declare My glory among the Gentiles.”
The “sign” in the verse above is the miracle people, the Jews themselves! This sign has other implications as well, which I won’t go into now, except to say that it relates to war of Gog and Magog). I’ll share more on this another time.
Here we have a magnificent, far reaching verse, with so many dramatic implications attached to every word!
Do you know that the many fulfilled prophecies relating to Israel are a great sign in themselves? (Isaiah 11:12) Israel’s birth, Jerusalem’s restoration, the Second Exodus, the land never to be lost again, and many more have all been fulfilled in our day. What a sign!
But the sign continues to speak! The Jews will be God’s chief evangelists to the Gentiles in the tribulation period. That means a pre-tribulation rapture. All from a few words in that incredible verse!
A message for the Jews: You are going to return to your Messiah. You will soon see with new eyes. It was written ages ago in Bible prophecy...it will happen. But when you return be careful not to return to the old ways. Return to your Lord who has many new things for you.
Church and Gentiles in general, know that to stand with and for Israel and the Jewish people is to be God’s own personal, close friend!
Psalm 60:11 “Give us help from trouble, for vain is the help of man. Through God we will do valiantly, for it is He who shall tread down our enemies.”
1 Samuel 2:9 “The Lord will guard the feet of His saints, but the wicked will be silent in darkness. For by strength no man shall prevail.”
Israel, Your God has been with you through the ages, even when you turned against Him, and were blinded as a result. But your eyes even now, are opening to your soon coming Jewish Messiah. Many forces, led by Satan, even some which you may think are too big for you to handle, will come against you. But fear not!
Look at that verse above again. “By (human) strength no man shall prevail against you". You have already won, so to speak! You are already the brothers and sisters of all Christian Zionists, who love you and stand with you.
My Jewish friends, you are God’s great sign in this world, of His soon return in judgement and love.
Anti-Semitism and its religious twin, replacement theology, are intensifying today. It is such a huge problem for its adherents because our Lord and Saviour is Jewish! That makes salvation a real obstacle for them. So, the anti-Semitic world is really shooting themselves in the head!
On the eve of destruction, most church ministers are playing ostrich, ostrich and wouldn’t dare pull their wolf-heads out of the sand to teach, inform and warn their blind sheep about the soon coming disasters.
The “Jerusalem” pictogram sign:
Amazingly, the pictograms of each Hebrew letter of the word “Jerusalem” paints a stunning picture. When the pictograms are put together this is what is contained in the name:
“A Prince is coming to do a mighty work, to accomplish a divine deed. It is to crush and destroy the voice of authority that is causing chaos confusion and death.”
That’s all hidden below the surface in the name alone...and people want to mess with Jerusalem!
●This is a short video clip on the meaning of Jerusalem: HERE
Signs will arise:
Be confident of this: It’s not our Lord’s character to catch us out or leave us uninformed. The signs will arise at the right time. It may be this year. If not, I doubt it would be longer than next.
The Revelation 12 sign may turn out to be right on the mark, as all the other ducks line up in a row. If not, it would not rock your boat because; you would not be putting all your trust in it. – Not so?
Please do yourself a favour and broaden your vision as far as the signs go and be honest with yourself. Look for all the signs together.
This great end-time drama is like a huge jig-saw puzzle. All the pieces must be there, and in place.
Please be discerning in these days!
Psalm 139:23 “Search me O God, and know my heart; try me and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
Jeremiah 29:13 “You will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all of your heart, I will be found by you says the Lord.”
Titus 2:13 “We look for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Saviour Yeshua the Messiah.”
We have so much, of such incredible value and importance lying just before us, don’t give up!
Our bodies will be transformed in a flash and conformed to the body of glory of our Lord. It will be incorruptible, full of power. It will be a spiritual body able to transcend the physical and spiritual dimensions at will. We will have full and complete knowledge of all things. We will “bear the image of the heavenly Man.” (1 Corinthians 15:42-49, Philippians 3:21)
Our future eternal bodies will be sickness and deformity free, ageless, never to see death.
Psalm 139:16-17 “Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they were all written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them. How precious are Your thoughts towards me, O God!
If you reject Bible prophecy and its signs, apart from rejecting one third of the Bible, you will receive the devil’s prophecy! Do you know what the devil’s prophecy is?
It’s anything you want it to be!
It’s the word of man, the word of the world and the word of the demonic. It’s all around us today!
Psalm 119:160 “The entirety of Your word is truth, and every one of your righteous judgements endures forever.”
I took this picture in the desert section of Etosha Game Reserve.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
