- Uranium found at new undeclared Iranian site. They are pushing the buttons alright! (The world, particularly the EU’s inability to bring Iran to book is giving them license to continue their march towards their repeated intended goal of attacking Israel.)
- Israel comes under heavy rocket attack from Gaza after the killing of Islamic Jihad terror leader. This morning (13th) rockets continue to fall on Israel. Palestinian Preseident says, "Israel must stop its aggression!"
- Islamic Jihad says, "We're going to war with Israel." (12th November)
- Bible prophecy is about to take another leap forward!
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
Exodus 19:5-6 “If you (Israel) will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine. And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation...”
Amos 9:15 “I will plant them (Israel) in their land, and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord God.”
Isaiah 41:11 “Behold all those who were incensed against you (Israel) shall be ashamed and disgraced; they shall be as nothing, and those who strive with you shall perish.”
Isaiah 44:18 “They do not know nor understand; for He has shut their eyes so they cannot see, and their hearts so they cannot understand.”
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah and to identify the rift, and the needed restoration. There is much in the church that needs to change before it can be fully reconciled with the Jew. Likewise, changes in Jewish thinking are also needed.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
The evil “I am”:
This is the ‘me now’ generation, ruled by ‘me, myself, I.’ It is the generation where the cry of the masses is “I am, and there is no other”. Here it is written in ages past:
Isaiah 47:10 “You have trusted in your wickedness. You have said, ‘no one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you; and you have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one else besides me.’”
One of the titles of our Messiah is “I am.” So, which ‘I am’ are you going to serve?
In the last few weeks I had two dramatic, most insightful encounters with two individuals, who had professed to be believers for years. Let’s call them Mr A. and Miss B.
Mr A has a foul mouth. I asked him to watch his language, and then spoke of something I had written here in The Prophetic Scroll (TPS). Well, Mr. A exploded and condemned me and TPS, with a tirade of swearing. To be honest, I was shocked to see the sudden extent of his antagonism.
Miss B then came along and exploded because I pointed out that the Bible condemned some of her witchcraft practises which she had tried to mix into her so-called Christianity. She instantly yelled like an electrified Jezebel, rejecting everything I said including the words of the Bible.
These two events are indicative and symptomatic of the world today, including some of the modern compromised churches.
Firstly, let’s analyse the events:
Both Mr A and Miss B were challenged to repent of sin. Both had a violent reaction to the conviction. It was not me or TPS or the Bible that they were offended at, but the personal application of conviction repentance and change, which was now on the table.
It was the conviction that they tried to get rid of by choosing the way of confrontation, and hostility. The way of spineless love would be to say nothing and tolerate it. The way of real godly love is the way of rebuke, and correction. (2 Timothy 3:16) If the individual will not receive it, so be it.
In the light you see the truth, but you also see sin. The light of God will reveal it and what to do about it. The darkness will hide it and attack the light! You can only repent from sin. If you remove what is called sin, re-name it, or water it down, no repentance is required and anything goes.
A hazy spiritual light will give you unclear half truths.
There are a number of bad things at work within many people. They want nothing standing in the way of self’s sin. They want no conviction. They are their own “I am.”
They want to bring people, ministries and the Bible down because it correctly identifies sin and opposes their participation in it. They try to exalt themselves above all authority.
They must tear down the things of God to give expression to their sin-nature.
The world and its god, fallen man and his god, are speeding down the road to soon coming doom.
●These end-times are bringing our Lord closer. ●The antichrist is also getting closer.
●The Man of holiness is drawing near. ●The man of sin is drawing near.
But for sin to flourish, holiness must be cast down. This is the state of the world today.
The problem with many today is that they are deceived, ignorant, don’t care, are proud, with no knowledge of God, and no restraint and discipline.
Most people today are a living offence to God. Of course, they can’t see that, because they are in the dark. It is the responsibility of the church to shed God’s light into this fallen world now.
As the end of the age approaches, the true church is becoming clearly visible in the light of God’s truth, and so is the false church! The eternal glorious kingdom of God, which will be the real survivor, is becoming more evident all the time, but it is exclusive.
By the way, the false church is not destroyed by God in the tribulation. It is destroyed, by its own god, the false Messiah!
The false church is becoming easier to spot. It is designed to make you comfortable in the world and in sin. It hides and obscures sin and its consequences. When the cross is obscured, sin is elevated.
The comfort of the world is not worth the effort of seeking. The world will comfort you in your sin and say, ‘it’s all okay now’. The word of God will not comfort you in your sin. It will condemn and convict you, and then empower you to change and become holy. That is what real true love is all about!
The well used term “There is now no condemnation,” is greatly misused in the church. In reality it is associated with repentance. It is conditional. Here it is:
Romans 8:1 “There is no condemnation to those who are in Messiah, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”
The woman caught in adultery was forgiven by our Lord. (John 8:10-11) But He said to her, ‘Now go and sin no more.’ This was the command of repentance and correction. She was not forgiven to continue in adultery.
Tradition holds that this was the “woman of sin” in Luke 7:37 and in fact was Mary Magdalene. If it was her, that means that her repentance led to her being the first one to see our Lord resurrected. It is a repentant attitude and life that cause spiritual sight.
May I say, that if you want a healthy spiritual life, break from the world’s ways and join and receive the word’s ways. Repent of sin now, but be advised, that a walk of repentance will do you more good than any exercises ever will!
Yes be free in your God-given liberty, but always keep an eye on the old sin nature and its desire to self-resurrect and trip you up.
Above all, in these dangerous days - exalt, uplift, revere and magnify the word of God in your life.
Be encouraged, stand strong – you can and must!
Edition 430: August 14th 2018
The media, you and Israel:
The mass-media shouts a lot about the “occupied territories” in Israel. They don’t know that they themselves are true “occupied territory” – occupied by the devil himself! They are of their father, the “father of lies.”They are doing the will of their father – “the god of the world”.
Fake news, post truth, alternative facts, lies, and deception are the plagues of our day. Biblical truth has long since been “cast down in the street”. (Isaiah 59:14) So, we are now in a world of variables where anything can masquerade as truth.
In this edition, I’m not concerned with normal media coverage of news events and the like, neither am I referring to the media that is involved with neutral issues, like gardening.
Some occupations are pretty harmless, but others are heavily, spiritually super-charged, especially those that influence masses of people.
There is a biblical principle saying “teachers will incur a stricter judgement.” (James 3:1) We can apply that as a principle, to the mass-media as well.
Luke 20:46 “Beware of the scribes...They will receive greater condemnation.”
In redefining sin and biblically based law, the world and its voice, the media, think there are no consequences of their actions, but they have a terrible surprise coming!
Freedom of the press does not mean that they are free to dominate and control people with their brand of new state-owned and media-owned “truth.” Beware of state-owned “truth” and media-owned “truth.” It is a viper.
Freedom is not freedom if it allows freedom to be destroyed.
Jeremiah 6:10 “To whom shall I speak and give warning that they may hear? Indeed their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot give heed. Behold, the word of the Lord is a reproach to them, they have no delight in it.”
Whichever way you look at it, there is very little time left before the rapture and the start of the seven-year tribulation period. (Revelation 12:12)
This obviously means that Satan’s mouthpiece, the media, is already going into overdrive with the proliferation, propagation and perpetration of propaganda, disinformation and brainwashing.
The world media have set themselves up as the creators of a new morality, and its monitor.
Make no mistake the rage, fury and wrath of God will respond!
When the media does speak the truth, it is still a matter of whose truth? Can Satan speak the truth? No never. Even his best “truth” is slanted, biased and a deception with poison in it somewhere.
All the end-time events are beginning to consolidate and dovetail into a monumental, magnificent and terrible concerto. Believers now need to fortify the truth, and stand securely in it.
The mass-media are backed by the very same spiritual forces that worked behind the scenes of the media throughout history. In the Bible, the “scribes” were the journalists of the day.
“Scribes:” Strong’s, G1122 – “Grammateus”. Meanings: Recorder, writer.
If ever there was an occupation condemned in the scriptures it was the scribes. They were the mouthpiece of the devil. They always had close affiliations with illegitimate religion.
As an ex-media man, I have watched the media devolve into a deadly beast over time.
Matthew 23:13-27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in...Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which appear beautiful outwardly, but inside, are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.”
Note the damage done by the scribes in the verses above.
Matthew 7:29 “He (Yeshua) taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.”
The spirits behind the media hate God and the things and ways of God. It’s really all coming to the surface in our day. The media today are the ultimate fallen-man pleasers!
Luke 22:2 “The chief priests and the scribes sought how they might kill Him, for they fear the people.”
Matthew 27:41 (At the cross) “The chief priests, with the scribes mocked...”
Truth stands securely as a pillar. The church is the custodian and defender of truth (1 Timothy 3:15)
The primary work of the mass-media:
The word “antichrist” comes from a number of root words. The meaning is to “get rid of” and to “replace with.”
The most powerful example of the spirit of antichrist at work is seen in the western world today. With the help of the media, the nations have come against the word of God, specifically in relation to morality. They have replaced what they have come against, with their own godless value system.
Jeremiah 6:15-19 “Were they ashamed when they had committed abominations? No they were not at all ashamed; nor did they know how to blush. Therefore they fall among those who fall at the time I punish them, they shall be cast down, says the Lord...I also set watchmen over you, saying, ‘Listen to the sound of the trumpet! But they said, we will not listen...I will bring calamity on them, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not heeded My words.”
Because the media have taken the place of God’s word, by rejecting it, they make sin “godly” by elevating it and giving it preference.
The media are masters of social engineering. They are designers of new thinking and a new sterile man, producing a new social equality around the values of Satan himself.
Satan comes in gradually by coming against truth and then replacing it. He then comes in officially, but camouflaged as truth to the blind and unsaved.
The media is the spearhead of the antichrist spirit. It is an image of the beast.
►The media will announce the arrival of a new one-world leader, the messiah of hell.
Peacocks in a bottle:
Talk about a message in a bottle!
Amazingly, the symbol for numerous media companies worldwide is a stylised peacock or peacock feather. This is a symbol of ancient Egypt, Babylon and Rome, all types of the world-system. It is also called the “all-seeing eye” because the feather looks like an eye.
But this symbol has powerful occult and pagan connections. It seems that this ‘symbol in a bottle’ keeps getting washed up on modern day shores!
The all-seeing eye originates from Egyptian devil worship. The Pharaohs often used a headdress of peacock feathers. The peacock was worshiped as a deity in these nations.
The peacock is a symbol of pride in many nations of antiquity and even some now.
One of the many legends is that the peacock will never go anywhere near gold, because it hates gold. Interestingly, gold is one of the biblical types of the deity of our Lord.
Israel and the mass-media:
There is a biblical law of blessing that comes upon nations, and people who bless Israel, and also curses that come upon those who curse Israel. If this is so, which it is, then the media are the champions of spreading cursing to the whole world.
Today Israel is under attack on many fronts especially relating to information emanating from the media, and it’s about to get far worse.
Many churches today, thankfully, are the stay of execution, because they stand with Israel.
►Israel, please know that many churches worldwide are standing with you, as closely as family.
Nehemiah 4:1 “So it happened, when Sanballat heard that we were rebuilding the wall (of Jerusalem) that he was furious and very indignant, and mocked the Jews.” (Sanballat was a leader of the empire that is today Iran. His name means: “The secret enemy.”)
Matthew 21:15 “When the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying out in the temple and saying, ‘Hosanna to the Son of David’, they (the scribes) were indignant.”
Note that the spirit of the scribes even today, is indignant at God’s work, and supports God’s enemies.
The command of God to the children of Israel was and is to “settle” in the Promised Land.
Isaiah 14:1 “The Lord will have mercy on Jacob and still choose Israel, and settle them in their own land. Strangers (Gentiles) will be joined to them and they will cling to the house of Jacob.”
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.”
We, as believers who stand for God’s word on Israel have a secondary very important role. Our stand is God’s media-message to the world! Don’t underestimate your job.
We are the modern media messengers of God’s truth, word and ways. We are messengers of the coming peace of Jerusalem, and the opening of the eyes of the Jews to their Messiah, and the good news of the lifting veil. We are messengers of the cross, messengers of judgement upon the world, messengers of grace, mercy and the love of God. We are messengers to the prodigals – come home now! We are messengers of condemnation to the churches of replacement theology. We are messengers to the world and the media that the land of Israel will soon be 100 times its size!
Pregnancies of note:
●Genesis 16:11-12 “Behold you are pregnant with child, and you shall bear a son. You shall call him Ishmael. (Father of the Arabs) He shall be a wild man; his hand shall be against every man...”
● Genesis 17:18-21 “Abraham said to God, ‘O that Ishmael 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.”
The media supports Ishmael (Arabs, Palestinians, Islam) and comes against Isaac (Jews with eternal covenant). Isn’t that interesting?
●The world is pregnant with the antichrist, who comes like a roaring lion. The media is the midwife!
●Israel is pregnant with a Lion – the Lion of the tribe of Judah. (Jews) Suddenly they will see their child – a Lamb and Lion, their Messiah, our Messiah!
The Jews and their newly found Child – Messiah, will bring salvation to the world in their new found holiness. The media and their new found child – the antichrist, brings slavery to sin, and hell.
The Jews, in their repentance will soon see with new sight, their Messiah, as God lifts the veil.
The media, in their pride and blindness will see their great leader, a messiah of madness, but won’t see Satan himself behind the veil.
We are the days of lifting and falling veils! Don’t mess with these things!
Lions of note:
●The Bible speaks of Satan going around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. (1 Peter 5:8) I think you could also include the media with Satan right here!
The above lion scatters and destroys.
●Hosea 11:10 “They (Israel) shall walk after the Lord. He will roar like a lion. When He roars then His sons shall come trembling from the west.”
The above lion is of God, and He gathers. This is the Lion of the Jews and He destroys the counterfeit lion, Satan and his loud voice the media.
I have personally witnessed lions in the wilds, spring a loud, dusty, terrifying, surprise attack on the unsuspecting. I have witnessed many lion kills. The point is that it’s not very clever to mess with a lion, especially if that Lion is God!
The pen, the sword and the trumpet:
Major constituents of our lives as believers are the pen, the sword and the trumpet.
●The pen must inscribe God’s word on our hearts and in our minds - The prophetic word too. God uses beautiful, calligraphy and handwriting upon the walls of our hearts and not a scrawly, scribe-like scribble. You are a master-manuscript of poetic magnificence. You are not fake-news!
●The blade of God’s two edged sword in our mouths is a superior weapon and an instrument cutting and dividing between truth and error. It springs attacks on devils and demons like a severe switchblade. It surgically cuts into sin like a sharp scalpel. God’s sword gives us the cutting edge!
●God’s trumpet in our lives is a shiny shofar calling an ingathering. It is a warning of attack on the enemy, of announcement of victory. It is a pure, thrilling shrill - a sign and a signal.
God’s presumptuous editors:
The media are more dangerous than you can imagine at this time in world history. Be warned!
Sin is the greatest abuser of man ever. It is your great enemy, yet the world and its media-mouth, want you to love it and accept it! They promote it, and legislate for it, and against opposition to it. They are the gods of sin, of censorship of God, and creators of apartheid from God.
The media are on a throne of pride like a Pharaoh or a Caesar, wearing a crown of peacock feathers.
You have to be the bravest person in the world or the dumbest thick-head ever, to set yourself up as God’s editor-in-chief and His judge, especially when you’re not even saved in the first place!
When you change God’s word you are cursed! No one in their right mind would curse themselves with an irrevocable curse leading to their own great failure on many fronts, yet they do just that.
The media are masters of manipulation, because their boss is. One of their methods to be aware of is selective editing. They are just as guilty for what they don’t say and leave out, as for what they do say. You can paint a picture this way.
It’s also good to bear in mind that the media can’t see truth even if they wanted to. This is conveyed so succinctly in these verses below and many others like it:
John 14:17 “The world cannot receive the Spirit of truth, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.”
Matthew 13:11 “It has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given.”
As a Christian, what you see and read must go through your eyes to the filter of the word of God in your heart to be accepted, cleansed or rejected.
An absolute classic I saw recently was a comment by a CNN anchor arguing about the occupied territories with an Israeli politician. She said, “Well this is what the world has decided and wants!”
Today we are surrounded by the evil of the world and its ungodly media mouth.
Habakkuk 1:4 “There is strife and contention, therefore the law is powerless, and justice never goes forth, for the wicked surround the righteous; therefore perverse judgment proceeds.”
Today, many churches, mostly counterfeit churches, have aligned themselves with the world’s media. They are a conscience sin-soother, backsliden in heart.
Spiritual conscientious objectors are objects of discouragement, as are those that object to us who take a stand for Israel in these days.
Numbers 32:6-7 “Moses said to the children of Gad and Rueben: “Shall your brethren go to war while you sit here? Now why will you discourage the hearts of the children of Israel from going over into the land which the Lord has given them?”
Psalm 64:2-3 “Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked, from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity, who sharpen their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows – bitter words.”
Genie in a bottle:
You can’t put the Genie back in the bottle once released, says the legend.
The media has opened the lid and let the evil out like spreading smoke. Like an invisible Trojan, sin has wafted into the cities like a stink bomb.
The media is engaged in the equal distribution of slavery to sin. The media is enlightened by deep darkness and is inflicting it on the masses.
The goal of the media is to corrupt and conquer by gradual, creeping acclimatising to their godless standards and ways.
Malachi 2:17 “You have wearied the Lord with your words; you say, in what way? In that you say, everyone who does evil is good in the sight of the Lord, and He delights in them.”
Media friends of God:
Isaiah 43:10-12 “You are My witnesses (media) says the Lord, and My servant whom You have chosen. And there was no foreign god among you; therefore you are My witnesses...”
There are some in the media today who are friends of God and fly His banner!
Isaiah 11:12-13 “He will set up a banner for the nation, and will assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth...and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off.”
Many churches and their people today are sending a clear message to the world, that they are not for sale and neither is their relationship and friendship with the living God.
Solid believers and godly media speak the truth boldly, but doubters and the uniformed confer, negotiate and capitulate to the best sounding idiot.
We are not God’s PR agents, making Christianity acceptable to the masses. We are the light of the world, not a mirror of society!
Yeshua is His own “media.” “It is written,” He said. Not, “Let’s have a discussion.” But you need special ears to hear and see His word. “Those who have ears let him hear what the Spirit says.”
As living media, always bear in mind that our message is written in the scarlet blood of the Lamb.
We must keep, protect and contend for pure doctrine especially in these days of blurred truth, sin filled, intellectual garbage, posing as truth, perpetrated by enemies of the cross of Messiah.
Negotiation and democratic discussion never defeats sin or produces holiness. When you mix dark and light you get a messy, foggy, boggy, blurry, hazy, hell-filled “truth.” God is nowhere near it!
John 16:13 “When He the Spirit of truth has come, He will lead you into all truth!”
I took the background picture in a forest of giant sycamore trees at Ndumu in KwaZulu / Natal, and the elephants at Etosha.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
