●With more and more Covid vaccines being developed, we could be close to the objective of the World Health Organisation of getting the whole vaccinated! This brings up all the issues of massive control and the coming of the mark system. The control aspect will only come into force in the tribulation period, but we are seeing what could turn out to be the forerunner of it all.
●The next of the major forerunners still “run” is war. It is coming soon.
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.
20th November 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
What is the Salvation of a nation?
Isaiah 32:18 “My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places.”
1 Timothy 2:2 “Pray for kings and all who are in authority, that you may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.”
As Christians we are ambassadors for Messiah’s kingdom, sent to the darkness to shed God’s light in it. Of course, there is a limit to that, because Satan is the god of the world, but nevertheless we do need to be God’s torch-bearer.
Jeremiah 29:7 “Seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive and pray for it, for in its peace you will have peace.”
There’s a distinction between God’s requirements for personal salvation and for the salvation of a nation. The scriptures need to be applied to each. So many, including pastors go off into a ditch on one side of the road, and essentially loose the plot!
It’s not so much about Trump or Biden, but more about spirits and biblical issues.
It’s not so much about the personalities but the policies and principles they represent.
In supporting one candidate, by default you are rejecting the other. So if one candidate represents a whole lot of biblical issues and the other, the opposite, you are standing for the policies much more than the personality. You cannot support one candidate and not all of his policies.
What’s different now is that God’s judgement has entered front stage. The call for repentance on the big world-influencing issues like abortion and moral degeneration is being echoed by all men of God, in tune with God, and even most rabbis.
If the call for repentance goes unheeded, judgement is on the doorstep. The liberal left parties, worldwide are not only ignoring God’s call, but making the situation far worse, by intensifying their rebellion on the very issues that have caused God’s judgment.
Psalm 58:2 “In heart you work wickedness. You weigh out the violence of your hands in the earth.”
We as believers are to go into the world from a position of being separate from it. I heard one pastor say the other day: “O well let’s just forget about Trump and focus only on Jesus.” When you throw in the towel of your ambassadorship you are capitulating to the devil. (2 Corinthians 5:20)
I’m not by any means suggesting that Christians become politicians, or go overboard on these things.
The Bible divides us into spirit, soul and body. The Bible says we are in this world but not of it.
It is our soul and body that is in this world with the nations. It is our spirit that is born again and seated in heavenly places.
We are not to be in friendship with the world and entangled in it, but to operate as agents of the kingdom of God, bringing both light and warning to the nations.
Multitudes are in the valley of decision not just about politics but their eternal life. Many are going to come like a flood into the kingdom in coming days, and many will be swept away like a flood!
I have written much on this subject, but the Bible is full of it. Here are more appropriate verses:
Proverbs 24:21 (Amp) “My son, reverently fear the Lord and king, and do not associate with those who are given to change of allegiance, and are revolutionary.”
Proverbs 28:28 (Amp) “When the wicked arise, men hide themselves, but when they perish, the righteous increase and become many.”
Proverbs 28:2 (Amp) “When a land transgresses, it has many rulers, but when the ruler is a man of discernment, understanding and knowledge, its stability will long continue.”
Proverbs 29:16 (Amp) “When the wicked are in authority transgression increases, but the righteous shall see the fall of the wicked.”
Isaiah 60:12 “The nation and kingdom that will not serve you shall perish; those nations shall be utterly laid waste.”
Psalm 9:17 “The wicked shall be turned back into Sheol (hell), even all the nations that forget God.”
Nehemiah 4:14 (Amp) “Do not be afraid of the enemy, remember the Lord great and terrible, and imprint Him on your minds, and take from Him courage to fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives and your homes.”
1 John 4:4 “Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.”
If President Trump is returned to office, the world may get a respite and holding off of judgement for a while, but it won’t override God’s overall purpose of bringing the rebellious world to its knees! If Biden ends up on the throne, it will expedite and hasten the terror to come.
You can and must secure your salvation now. If you are not sure or not saved, now is the time – not tomorrow! As you will see in the new edition, “Contrasting new world orders,” we are on the very verge of some things that will shock, stagger, surprise and stun you!
Welcome to the prophetic scroll edition 1
By Joel Joseph
In this edition:
● Why launch The Prophetic Scroll today?
●Our website is at www.thepropheticscroll.org (live but under construction)
●Outline of the nature of the "Scroll"
●Amazing news events
In future editions I will bring you:
Interpretation of scripture.
Why prophecy is the most important subject of our time and a grand overview.
Why Israel is so important now.
Many mini-teachings on related subjects.
A World Watch in relation to prophetic events.
Key portions of scripture...and more.
A hearty welcome to this the first edition of The Prophetic Scroll. Before I share with you details of the publication, let me share why it is launching today.
Today is called The Great Shabbat. This 10th day of Nissan was the day the children of Israel showed great defiance to Egypt (type of the world) by taking lambs into their homes for the Pesach offerings. The Egyptians hated this because they worshipped lambs and other animals as gods.
This day occurs rarely. It is happens when Shabbat occurs on the 10th of Nissan with Pesach.
The Great Shabbat also refers to the coming millennium. It was also the day our Messiah rode into Jerusalem and presented Himself as King of the Jews, to become the ultimate sacrificial Lamb. It also points towards the recognition of the Messiah by the Jews and the lifting of their blindness in this regard.
What's it all about?
Today marks the prayerful launch of this new exciting, informative and relevant multi-facetted publication.
This e-newsletter will go out once a week to you as a subscriber (free), with special editions sent out at any time if needs be. Each edition will be archived on the website, which has also just launched today.
The style will be short and to the point. Further in-depth teachings and articles will be presented on the website.
The content will be relevant to the current world macro-situation as reflected in some way in Bible prophecy, with the overall objective of bringing you knowledge, wisdom and understanding of these things. This will give you the opportunity to be ready in heart and soul and to be able to participate in the now-unfolding GREATEST DRAMA OF ALL TIME. This drama, which will put a thousand Shakespeare's to shame will be a great tragedy for many and for some it will be great glory!
The modern financial Babel!
Before I share with you many interesting items lets have a brief look at why these items are of interest now.
In the city of Babylon, (Genesis 11) the people of the world came together as one and tried to build a tower to reach God. What's wrong with that you may ask! Well, plenty simply because they tried to do it without going Gods way. Babylon was also the first home of banking so relates to the financial systems of the world as well. Babylon is also a type and shadow of the world at large and appears in numerous other portions of scripture relating to the modern world. There are also many double references where Babylon refers to the ancient city, but also to modern worldly or kingdom dominionist religion.
Today many people are trying to build a new world order, form a new world currency and do it all without God. As in the days of old, again God will destroy modern Babylon in all it's forms. "Babylon the Great is fallen is fallen" says Revelation
None of the following news items are actual complete fulfilments of prophecy, but are fore-runners, designed to soften and prepare the world for the final fulfilment.
Recent new world order and global currency headlines:
Robert Zoellick openly admitted the plan to eliminate national sovereignty and impose a global government during a speech on the eve of the G20 summit. AP
"Time for a New World Order"
says Australian PM...
Sarkozy,Merkel and Blair call for a NEW WORLD
..."there is No Other possibility...." Back in the 1930's, Adolf Hitler was talking about a New Order. On September 11, 1990, Bush Sr spoke about his "big idea, a New World Order". It's even on the dollar bill.
It is hard to believe, but a majority of Americans (including Christians and conservatives) seem oblivious to the fact that there is a very real, very legitimate New World Order (NWO) unfolding. In the face of overwhelming evidence, most Americans not only seem totally unaware of this reality, they seem unwilling to even remotely entertain the notion.
BERLIN, Germany (CNN) -- The world needs a "Global New Deal" to haul it out of the economic crisis it faces, Prime Minister Gordon Brown of the United Kingdom said Sunday.

|Obama about to betray Israel, says former intel officialA former top US intelligence official warns that the Obama Administration is about to break America's long ties of friendship with Israel, and maybe even take steps toward the dissolution of the Jewish state. Speaking on condition of anonymity to Douglas Hagmann of the Northeast Intelligence Network, the source said: "I have every reason to believe, based on what I’ve seen at my level of [security] clearance especially over the last several years, that Israel will soon be completely on their own… or worse." He went on to note that the betrayal likely won't happen in one dramatic moment, but rather subtly, behind the scenes, and over the course of several years.|
Iran leader says world can't stop nuclear progress ReutersPsalm 83 predicts this scenario: Obama et al are aware that The Two State ''solution'' is NO SOLUTION but an assured '' ISRAEL NATIONAL SUICIDE PLAN''
The attempts to pressure Israel into adopting this so called ''solution'' is a guise in the satanically inspired hidden agenda to solve ''the JEWISH PROBLEM'' - NOT The Israeli/ Palestinian Problem''
It is the same Satanic, Antichrist Agenda manifested throughout Israel's existence via various human agencies. It is reaching its all time climax in fulfilment of Palm 83...
'''' Let us destroy them as a nation that the Name of Israel
is remembered no more''''
But .. GOD will arise.. even as His Word predicts this whole scenario!

U.S. May Cede to Iran's Nuclear Ambition
U.S. officials are considering whether to accept Iran's pursuit of uranium enrichment, which has been outlawed by the UN and remains at the heart of fears that Iran is seeking nuclear weapons capability. As part of a policy review commissioned by President Obama, diplomats are discussing whether the U.S. will eventually have to accept Iran's insistence on carrying out the process, which can produce both nuclear fuel and weapons-grade material. (Daniel Dombey, Financial Times-UK, April 4, 2009
The first act Obama performed after taking office escaped all but a few who are sensitive to the heart of God!
First act: Murder of untold thousands! Yes that's true. He ordered government financing for abortions in the US and reversed the bill allowing Christian doctors and nurses not to participate in abortions. In other words this now forces Christians, by law to participate in murder.
Obama declared "If my daughter made a mistake I would not want her to be punished with a child! (This became a well-known T-shirt slogan)
Summary:The above is a collection of news items and snippets from a wide variety of media over the last few weeks. Many of these items have been repeated in other media as well, so the issues are worldwide and not from just a few isolated publications.
Anyone with even a slight knowledge of Bible prophecy would be amazed at these news items...not so? Unfortunately no, not at all. The tragedy is that the great majority of believers have little or no interest in these things.
As in the days of Noah people were carrying on with life as normal and were not in slightest bit interested in the warnings coming from some old man building a huge boat in the desert!
War in the Middle East is coming soon:
Iran is talking of opening diplomacy with the US, while at the same time pursuing its nuclear aspirations. Netanyahu is determined not to let Iran get anywhere near to a nuclear weapon. The problem is that Ahmadinejad has the capacity to cripple the already injured world economy. 40% of the world's oil goes through the straits of Hormuz, controlled by Iran. Upheavals here will send oil flying and the world economy tumbling!My sense is that concessions made by Obama and his team will be seen by the Muslim world as weakness and only a strategy to gain further control. We are on the verge of a large war!This will consolidate the world against Israel and prepare the way for some of the most exciting times ever!Another great tragedy is that most believers do not understand that dividing the land of Israel and Jerusalem will not bring peace but war. This is revealed clearly in the book of Joel3:1,2 "In those days and at that time, when I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat and I will enter into judgement with them there, on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land." It is further revealed in Zachariah 12:3 "And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples, and all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it."The "destiny" players:Iran's Ahmadinejad, Israel's Netanyahu and Obama of the US
One of the big wars of Bible prophecy still to be fulfilled is found in Ezekiel 38 and 39 which relates to an incredible assault on Israel by Rosh (Russia today) and various allies. Today these allies are perfectly aligned as enemies of Israel. I will deal with this in greater detail in another edition, but one of the very interesting enemies of Israel in this war is Libya. Interestingly Gaddafi apparently made some sort of peace initiatives with the West some year ago. This was a pure front. He is now the new head of the African Union (AU). Here are a few recent quotes from Gaddafi:
"The Bible is a forgery". "Christianity is not for Africa". "Israel must cease to exist.","Jews must be driven into the sea." "Obama must negotiate with Bin Laden"
In closing this edition I would like to share with you some words of wisdom, for your prayerful thought:
Being right with God means being right in heart and in doctrine.
Jn16:13 "When He the Spirit of truth has come, He will guide you into all truth...and show you things to come"
Hebrews 9:28 "To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time"
Finally, here is one of the many wonderful paintings of the crucifixion done by world renowned artist, a Jewish believer Marc Chagall:
I have walked with our Lord and saviour since 1976 and would like to testify to the fact that He is eternally faithful, all loving and ultimately the very essence of life itself. Things get better, deeper, richer and fulfilling as we go forward into all the new things that He has laid up for us.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and hang in there!
