- Covid 19 virus is still spreading worldwide. Watch for this to level off. Watch for the infection rate to begin to decline. It will happen and soon. Watch for many leaders to turn to God. Some are!
- China is to lift lockdown on April 8th as 1.5 billion worldwide go into lockdown.
- This pandemic is going to take a large chunk out of world economic growth and set back nations and people already struggling.
- Interestingly the word “Corona” means “crown” it is also a fiery ring surrounding the sun visible at an eclipse. Does it symbolise a crown of fiery judgement?

Watchmen who spy with their little eye:
A major goal of The Prophetic Scroll (TPS) is to be ahead of the curve. It is to have eyes looking into the future. It is to hear the word of the Lord and to inform and warn of things to come.
Here at TPS you will find teaching and encouragement for your heart and your head. You will be kept safely in the arms of our Lord, through the work of the Spirit of God.
The spread and growth of the coronavirus is often represented as a curve in a graph, with the largest numbers at the peak of the curve.
I have some good news for you:
The coronavirus has run its course and is over! You might think I’m mad! Well, there are two issues here. Firstly, that is the sense I get from the word of the Lord. Secondly that is what the graphs and charts are saying.
Of course it’s not over in reality yet, but the curve in most places has peaked. You may surprised to know that China’s Wuhan Province where the virus started and killed many is already back to normal with all services, factories transport and industries back to normal operation. (Look it up) Other nations are seeing a flattening of the curve after the peak. A few are still seeing an increase.
We are to look out into the future and not right at our noses. Yes I do believe there is going to be a lot of difficulty ahead, but the human spirit has strong bounce-back ability.
Stock markets are always anticipatory of future economic fundamentals. They price in the future now. We have seen world markets crash and then crash again. But in the last week or so they have registered repeated record runs higher, including the largest ever one day point gain in history on the Dow.
Markets create many signals including the reliable “key reversal signal” which is a capitulation to the downside and a “V” shaped spike higher forming a number of higher highs on the charts. This is just what we have now.
Can the markets still go down? Yes they can take another hit, but the main, furious downside is over.
All the pessimists including Christian pessimists can only see the reality of sick, dying and dead people everywhere! They can’t see the light in the tunnel because they are the dark tunnel.
The mass media have created a no-man’s land riddled with mine-fields saying, ‘don’t resist our opinions’. They have created a fortified ‘city’ full of so-called giants of their own opinions.
Let’s put this into spiritual terms with our two good friends of antiquity – Joshua and Caleb.
Joshua and Caleb:
These were two of the twelve spies sent by Moses to spy out the Promised Land of Israel.
This story relates prophetically to Israel’s future salvation, and also applies to God’s promises for the Christian.
We should all know the story. All the spies saw the same thing which was a land flowing with milk and honey, but with big giants and fortified towns. Ten came back and accurately reported what they saw and thought. They said that it was impossible to defeat these giants and the fortifications.
Joshua and Caleb saw the same things but in faith, looked beyond and came back with an outrageous, radical, good report in light of all the bad things. It defied eyes, ears and logic!
We have exactly the same picture with David and Goliath, which speaks very much of Israel’s fight for survival today.
Joshua and Caleb refused to see themselves as submitted grasshoppers controlled by evil.
The ones who went into the Promised Land had wholeheartedly followed God.
The ten evil spies had significant influence. They held the majority consensus, because they thought they could see with their eyes. The Bible says that the caused the entire congregation to murmur. (Numbers 14:17-38)
The ten with the evil report led the entire camp of the children of Israel to banishment by God in the wilderness, where they all died of the plague. Joshua and Caleb were the ones to lead the new flock into the land.
The ten spies are represented in the mass-media. They see with eyes that cannot see.
Tragically, much of the church today not only carries the virus of the ten evil spies relating to Israel, they actually facilitate it with their anti-Semitism and replacement theology.
You must have spiritual eyes to hear God’s trumpet warnings, or the holy, golden, shining sword is coming your way fast. (Deuteronomy 32:41, Ezekiel 21:9)
I believe that’s not politically correct today to say a sword is coming! – Voetsak!
Two pretty neat watchmen!
The twelve spies were sent to spy out the land. Only two of the ten were God's watchmen.
●The word “spy” is Strong’s H8446 meaning to seek, search and explore.
●The word “watchman” is Strong’s H6822 meaning to keep watch, or to spy out and observe. Note that the meanings are almost identical.
Today we have many self-proclaimed watchmen. They are part of the ten evil spy network! They spy out what they see. They report on what they see and speculate with variables. They are repeatedly wrong. (I heard of one who recently claimed that the rapture would take place on Purim, because that’s when Jews get drunk in the streets! – What garbage!)
Some people are so thickly deceived that even if you show them the truth, they will still believe a lie. That is because deception is primarily an evil spirit, which becomes imbedded if not cut out.
So, if the Covid 19 story is on the way out, have we learned the lesson? Many have. Many are talking of national repentance. Many joined for urgent prayer and still are. But many have not. These are those who never will. They are the doomed ones. Please don’t be one!
How many large biblical abominations present in the nations, that led to their national curses will go? Very few will!
What is important and coming soon is the next round of catastrophic judgment on this world. This is because of the overall place we are in prophecy. It will speed up.
The truly blind media and their blind sheep have denied God and His word. They have by extension denied mankind the ability to see sin, wickedness and abomination.
►Here is a most powerful lesson for you in these days:
Deuteronomy 8:2 “The Lord your God led you all these forty years in the wilderness to humble you and test you, to know what was in your heart. Verse 16: He might humble you and test you to do you good in the end.”
Psalm 106:14-15 “They soon forgot His works, they did not wait for His counsel, but lusted exceedingly in the wilderness and tested God in the desert, so He gave them their requests, but sent leanness into their soul.”
Some of these end-time things are great surgical tools for your heart!
Psalm 71:20-21 “You have shown me great and severe troubles, You shall revive me again, and bring me up again from the depths of the earth. You shall increase my greatness and comfort me on every side.”
2 Kings 6:16 “Do not fear, for those that are with us are more than with them.” The Lord opened their eyes to see mountains full of chariots of fire all around Elisha!
Welcome to TPS – your very own Joshua and Caleb for today’s exciting and unique times!
Edition 407: March 6th 2018
God’s truth / Satan’s truth:
This edition may be shocking to some.
I will deal with some of the big underlying spiritual moves and forces at work in the world today. Some of these include: Globalism, Universalism, Post-truth and Interfaith. These things are flooding the world now at great speed, together with many other dangerous false doctrines. Be aware of what is going on, so that you can be pro-active.
Defining the term:
God’s truth is unchanged and has always been revealed in His word by His Spirit. It has the goal of leading us to the cross and beyond, defining our walk, and much more. It comes with defined fruits of the Spirit.
Satan’s truth is just the same! Satan uses pure error, but his big deception lies in his use of biblical truth, but always with the cross missing. It comes with fruits of his spirit – poison.
The cross is the holiness-creator for us. The word “holiness” is rich in meaning:
Holiness: Strong’s H6944 “Qudesh”. Meanings: Apartness, separation, sanctification, pure.
Satan’s truth can include many biblical concepts like love, peace and unity, but all without the cross and the holiness it creates.
Cross-less, unholy Christianity is Satan’s counterfeit.
●The cross is the greatest obstacle to globalism, a new world order, and world peace simply because the cross is the great separator. It only unifies those who have received it and now embrace it.
●The second greatest obstacle to globalism is Israel. Like the cross of God, the call of God to the Jews, indentifies and separates them from the nations of the world, for God’s exclusive plan. The Bible forbids the Jews from assimilating into the nations, even in their dispersion.
Globalism must get rid of the cross and God’s call for Israel.
We, as true believers, must be led by the Spirit, but in this day that must include the Sword too! The Sword of the Spirit is severe. It is two edged, separating and dividing.
Today, too many are led by the Sprit of truth mixed with Satan’s truth and purposes, too many are misrepresenting pure biblical truth, and bringing it into disrepute. (2 Peter 2:1-3) A mixture of God and the devil will never ever work or produce godly results.
●The end goal of God’s truth is the coming of Messiah and a new world, pure and holy.
●The end goal of Satan’s truth is the coming of his messiah and a new world full of sin.
Satan’s authority to create his world is a well camouflaged lie and a deception. His selective use of scripture is in fact the essence of heresy. He uses many minsters and platforms like YouTube.
Satan’s use of teachers:
Some teachers of the gospel may have started well, but somewhere down the line, pride came in and the deception-door was opened! In these last days there will be thousands of them!
The nature of the false teacher is to draw away disciples after themselves. (Acts 20:30) But what they are doing is drawing people into the clutches of Satan.
The false teacher will try to get you to be led by him.
There are only two sources of revelation. One is the Holy Spirit and the other is Satan. Revelation correctly used, produces knowledge, understanding and wisdom by grace, with accompanying biblical fruits.
Revelation used by someone backed by Satan produces legalistic, judgemental control. It is actually the power of witchcraft at work.
“Witchcraft is the control of people by a spirit, which is not the Spirit of God”. – (Derek Prince)
Satan’s teachers are inside and outside of the church.
The mass media like CNN, Sky and all the others, are no longer news channels. Now, they shape the news, so that they can shape you. But it’s their big boss, Satan doing the shaping! Satan is shaping you to fit in with his globalist, evil agenda.
Part of the globalist world-agenda is to de-moralise society. They do this by constantly moving the acceptable limits of morality a bit further down, then a bit more. The world, in its ignorance, buys it all. Then they say it’s all acceptable, because the world thinks so.
Before Satan can change your morality, he must alienate your affections for God, His word and His holiness, which are all inextricably linked. He does this gradually, although now it’s all speeding up. You must know God’s word extremely well in these days, and apply it.
The word of the media and all the institutions of the world, traditions, and cultures, take pre-eminence when God is removed from society.
Politics, property, money, materialism, entertainment and all the ways of the world, become a god when God is gone. Culture and tradition takes the place of faith. They require no moral repentance and are therefore unholy in nature. People these days don’t like anything that requires deep repentance!
Ignorance of the word of God, led by the Spirit of God, is a most dangerous thing, today.
Biblical truth comes with a package which including morality. People don’t like that. They want the truth, but the not the lifestyle of the truth.
The true teacher will not yield to that. He will teach the truth with its morality and the severe consequences of avoiding it.
God’s true teachers will be led by the Spirit and therefore will be led into all truth. They will be expositors of real, complete truth. (Acts 20:27) They will preach and teach all of the truth and not selected items.
The true teacher will show you the right way, which is through repentance, to the cross, and on to glory! He will present to you the goodness and severity of God. (Romans 11:22)
A true, Spirit-led teacher will always leave you changed. You will feel clean and right.
The principle of cross-created and inspired repentance is that it creates holiness inside, and is a border and barrier keeping evil out. Repentance is a daily walk.
Globalism, war and sin:
A satanically created globalist world must be amoral. It must cast down the values, virtues and holiness of the word of God. Holiness comes exclusively from God. It has no place in Satan’s world.
Remember the great prophecy of Isaiah 59:14 “I looked and saw the word (law) cast down in the street.”
You do not cast the word down without consequences! The tragic result is that the word of the world and its god, Satan, is then exalted in the streets of the world!
Not too long ago we had many nations “under God.” Today many of those nations are under Satan. You can see it in the fruit.
Hitler had a globalist agenda. He wanted to create a thousand-year Nazi-ruled world in which they would dominate. The Jews stood in his way, because they are biblically and prophetically destined never to assimilate into the world.
The purpose today of all churches of replacement theology and various forms of anti-Semitism is no different than that of Hitler!
When you go into a church of replacement theology, do you see the swastika on the pulpit? If you don’t, you need to open your spiritual eyes! It’s right there.
Globalism involves a great change from nations under God, to nations under Satan and a hot church to a lukewarm institution of devils and demons.
Please bear in mind that globalists don’t just want you on board with them. They want to change and shape you into a piddly little creature that fits nicely into a slot in hell.
●War is a tool of globalism.
Wars are essentially fought over territory or religion. War creates chaos, fear and anarchy. The answer is a one-world system and a one-world religion. That then, gets rid of independent territories and religions. That should open the door for peace, they think!
War creates fear which creates the desire for peace. When the war is severe enough, it will be peace at any cost that will be accepted. That will include surrender to Satan’s antichrist.
Satan’s global, new world order will never be able to get rid of sin, so it is simply renamed and removed as an issue. Sin is gradually accepted and enshrined and becomes a basic human right.
The final end result of Satan’s new one world order is the enthronement of sin. No wonder the Bible calls the antichrist, “the man of sin.”
Guard your life:
Guard your hearts. What is in your heart sets and determines the course of your life!
Like never before, we need to be vigilant. We need to be discerning in identifying all the attacks upon us, and we need to be personally thorough and severe in removing the dangers.
Proverbs 4:20-23●“Give attention to My words. ● Incline your ear to My sayings. ●Do not let them depart from your eyes and ●keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all your flesh. ●Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it springs the issues of life.”
The two verses below are so profound and far reaching. They should be on top of your “Daily Bread” promise-box!
Job 20:5-6 “The triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite (Lit=godless) is but for a moment. Though his haughtiness mounts up to the heavens, and his head to the clouds, yet he will perish forever like his own refuse.”
Job 17:9 “The righteous will hold to his way, and he who has clean hands will be stronger and stronger.”
A Post-Truth World!
►The “Word of the Year” for 2016, according to the Oxford Dictionary was “Post Truth.” Their definition is: “Circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.”
The graph below shows the increasing frequency of the term “post truth” in recent years:
“Post truth!” You have to be totally stark-raving mad, and insane to believe that! Yet this is the way of the world’s deluded intellectuals, crackpot clever people, mass-media mugs, lamebrain liberal politicians, and other blinded, devil-deceived and empowered fruitcakes.
The true, repentant, faith-filled believer, on the other hand, stands securely in the temple of glorious, unchangeable, eternal truth, celebrating its awesome wonder, splendour, majesty and miraculous magnificence, transforming us from glory to glory!
Psalm 60:4 “You have given a banner to those who fear You, that it may be displayed because of the truth.”
You can’t redefine truth because it’s absolute and of God. You can only redefine yourself. It is modern humanity that is the fast-deteriorating problem.
Truth is not words and concepts although they are involved. Truth is a living Spirit – the Spirit of God. Truth is alive and well and will endure forever!
A “post truth” world of necessity means a sin-filled world of variables where anything goes. It is only God’s truth that identifies sin and deals with it through the cross. A post-truth world implies that truth is obsolete and something else has replaced it.
What has replaced it? No-truth, no absolutes, no authority structures based on God’s word. No family values, no virtues, no manners, no restraint from evil, and no Jewish Israel!
The Ten Commandments are of God. They define sin and point the way to the answer – the cross. A post-truth world rejects them and contains the commandments of Satan and points the way to hell.
Here are just a few of Satan’s commandments:
Do what you will.
Isaiah 14:13-15 “I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will sit on the mount of the congregation. I will ascend above the clouds. I will be like the Most High.’ Yet you shall be brought down to hell.’”
Today, many people would take God to court for violating their rights in this new post-truth world.
Post-truth is for brainless, hell-bound fools and politicians. Tragically many churches and their wolf-leaders are wallowing in the post-truth cow dung too.
The damage done:
A move away from God and His word kills your conscience. A damaged conscience is dangerous and makes you a moral psychopath. Actually, it’s like leprosy killing your feelings and emotions – preparing you for your ride to hell. (That’s just why leprosy is a type of sin in the Bible.)
●God’s new world order is full of holiness. ●Satan’s new world order is full of sin. Satan’s work is to make his new world order acceptable to all. The problem though is that sin almost always comes with many other satanic commodities like sickness, depression, stress, poverty and more.
Pride causes rebellion to God and refusal to repent. Humility causes submission to God and repentance. Have you ever noticed that proud and arrogant people are so blind to truth and often filled with many hang-ups, and obsessions?
Many people want to be saved, but they don’t want holiness. They are so deeply entrenched in sin that it’s normal to them. In fact it draws them forever downward. The funny thing is that holiness is powerful in its attraction. It draws you higher and fills you with all things good.
Matthew 23:12 “Whoever exalts himself will be abased, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
Obadiah 1:3 “The pride of your heart has deceived you...”
Psalm 10:4 “The wicked in his proud countenance does not seek God; God is in none of His thoughts.”
Be careful what you let into your heart, because it will grow and expand. Error grows. The Bible says “tend your heart.” That is an agricultural term meaning that we are to tend our hearts as a gardener. Rip out the weeds and nurture the good.
Most Christians are more concerned about the approval of their peers, finding favour with the world, measuring themselves amongst themselves, with the media as their standard, rather than the requirements of God.
God’s requirements have not changed one bit. They are the cross applied to the flesh, the world and the demonic! They are humility before our Lord, brokenness, surrender and an ongoing walk of repentance.
●The world’s no-cross is the great evil-maker. No-cross leaves you full of sin. Even your good is sin. ●The cross is the self - killer and holy - maker.
There is a unique power available exclusively to Christians walking in fellowship with our Lord. It’s a secret, hidden, but glorious power. It is called the power of the cross. (Philippians 3:10) This power gives us the strength die self and to walk free from sin.
Dead, hell-bound digital truth:
Today we are in a world of digital data and artificial intelligent design. Algorithms and centralised processing is being set up to produce digital dictatorships! Who controls data controls humanity!
The digital world is amoral they say. No it is not!
Satan has access to wherever God has been removed.
The digital world does what its creators make it do. It therefore takes on the morality of its creator. It is engineered to suit the globalist agenda. The control of data is a powerful means of controlling the future of humanity and the masses. Data is a control mechanism in the wrong hands!
The digital data world is and will become the power of the 666 system.
Hacking human brains is the next big thing.
For you, dear believer, the globalist agenda will not get’s its hands on you. For you it will fail miserably. The rapture will take care of that. For the unsaved it will be a huge success, only for a short time!
God’s response to Satan’s “truth”
Satan’s use of God’s truth to deceive the masses will not last. But being aware of the problem and how it works, gives you a huge advantage. God’s age old word is more than enough to defeat the devil on every front.
Proverbs 1:25-27 “If you disdain My counsel, I will laugh and mock when your terror comes. When you call on Me, I won’t answer because you did not choose the fear of the Lord. Whoever listens to Me will dwell safely and securely.”
Isaiah 5:20-24 “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness...Woe to those that are wise in their own eyes...Therefore as fire devours stubble, and flames consume the chaff, so their root will be a rottenness, and their blossom will ascend as dust; because they have rejected the law (word) of the Lord.”
Psalm 139:21-24 Do I not hate your enemies...I hate them with perfect hatred, I count them my enemies...Search me, O God and know my heart; try me and know my anxieties; see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
Satan once before got the masses to accept the way of peace without the sin-removing cross. The world will again receive Barabbas, but they won’t see that he is the antichrist!
The opposite of the cross of Calvary is worldly humanism. The cross slays self-effort, humanism glorifies it.
As we go forward nearer and nearer to our glorious eternity, we must remain vigilant, holy, pure and wise to the devil’s devices. Stay clear of globalism in all its forms including liberal politics. Let you life be an impenetrable barrier and border to all of these globalist endeavours.
Thankfully a number of churches and ministries are teaching and preaching some excellent material on these things. Others continue like stupid ostriches with their heads in the sand.
I took the background picture of a giant baobab tree in the Limpopo Province and combined it with one of my own art works also of a baobab. (I guess you’ve figured out that I love these trees!)
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
