Shabbat Shalom to all!
When the pressure is on:
What do you really do in thought and action when the pressure is really on and all things begin to shake?
It’s like the good -old toothpaste tube law: When you squeeze it, what’s inside comes out. This is when you see what’s really in your heart! “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” (Matthew 12:34)
Out of the heart under strain do you hear the mouth speak, shout, screech, swear, stress out, or be silent? Is your thinking stained, strained and stretched by stress?
Pressure sharpens your focus! It can cause you to curse or cause incredible blessing, if you change your focus to the things of God. Yes, a virus can change your focus to victory.
Tests create endurance, or in some cases cause people to give up.
Today we have a multitude of spiritually superficial, shallow shepherds, blind as a bat and deaf as a doornail to the voice of God, and with the mouth of many parrots leading their blind flock.
A lot of what you believe is related to the spiritual input from your spiritual fathers are and who you hang around with and identify with. In this day, you need to make sure who your spiritual friends are! You need to forsake many, and gather new ones.
I would feel a lot safer learning from a hell-fire and brimstone preacher of the cross than the modern, be blessed, be prosperous, be happy, positive-only preachers.
To construct this modern positive-only gospel, you have to remove all the “hard sayings and severity of the gospel. Their gospel becomes a half-baked ear-tickling tickle.
Endurance produces character. This is why a lot of the modern church is so spineless.
Some churches, you dare not walk into. They need a big sign outside saying “Enter at your own risk” or better still, “Danger, do not enter”
James 1:3 “Know that the testing of your faith produces patience (Lit=endurance) “
When the pressure is on beware of the pressure to err! Many times pressure causes you to run away and take the easy, wide road with the multitudes. That’s when you fall into error and then fear. When you have decided to take the easy erroneous road, don’t think God will help you along.
Isaiah 30:28 “His breath is like an overflowing stream, which reaches up to the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of futility; and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err.”
If your heart is not right with God, why should He lead you into all truth? The verse above applies to the world, but the principle is universal.
We are seeing a massive rise in deceptive teachings particularly relating to Israel, to the pre-tribulation rapture and the tribulation period.
As God prepares to move in new ways with Israel, there will be alarming and dramatic signs. The thrilling sounds of the shofar are shattering the midnight sounds of silence over Jerusalem even right now. (Literally!) The alarm of awakening is sounding; the ancient walls of Jerusalem are vibrating and reverberating with the breath of the Lion of the tribe of Judah – arising ready to roar onto the stage!
This is the time to reach out to the Jews with the good news of salvation in their Jewish Messiah – our Messiah. This is the time to throw out and destroy the obstacles to them coming in to the kingdom, created by the church.
If God has finished with the Jews, as many teach, how do you explain the great regathering to the land? Do you think that is just God having fun, or that it’s just meaningless coincidence?
In this day you are in trouble if you do not know how to discern the voice of truth.
You cannot obey the voice of the Lord if you can’t hear the voice of the Lord. The voice of the letter of the word is not the voice of the Lord. It is dead letter and produces death, legalism and bondage. (2 Corinthians 3:6, Galatians 5:9)
These are very dangerous days, not so much because of any virus, but because required repentance is being ignored and the source of “truth” for the people is the devil’s deceivers – the media.
A good starting presumption is not to trust the mass-media. Regard it with automatic suspicion. Obviously I’m not talking about a hard news event, but all their “exalted” opinion pieces.
Isaiah 2:12 “The day of the Lord of hosts shall come upon everything proud and lofty, upon everything lifted up.”
What follows is some of the sermon or book titles of my own spiritual fathers. I cut my spiritual teeth on this lot, starting in the late 70s. Some of these great men of God would be scorned and rejected today. But their work stands with transforming power, for the few that find them.
These wonderful discipleship teachers of old, pulled the rug out from under you, condemned the hell out of you, and often times left you floored, in surrender to our Lord, in a manner that caused you to be so very thankful! I would trust my life with them!
My aim is to show that just in the titles alone, you can see that they are of another glorious world: (My library contains thousands more.)
Derek Prince: ●Fierce times are coming. ●I will shake all things – the nations, the church and Israel. ●Facing the last days without fear. ●Living in a world falling apart. ●Evil forces of the end times. ●The Spirit of Antichrist ●Disasters that are about to come upon the earth. ●Facing God’s judgment.
Watchman Nee: ●Not I but Christ. ●The messenger of the cross. ● A living sacrifice. ●The spirit of judgement. ●Salvation of the soul. ●Love not the world.
Charles Finney: ●How to be free from the world. ●Victory over the world.
AW Tozer: ●That incredible Christian. ●The divine conquest. Gems from Tozer.
Looking at the titles should give you an idea of the content. How many of these titles do you hear preached today? By the way I have ‘devoured’ these books, tapes and teachings and thousand more about eight times each. I have about 300,000 pages of hand written notes from them.
Be blessed as you prepare your heart mind and soul for the glorious appearing of our Lord – soon and very soon!
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 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!
