|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 438: October 9th 2018
Psychological victory for today:
This edition flies in the face of much modern thinking.
I have written extensively on this subject in numerous editions, which you will find under the “Editions by Subject” button. But this is mostly new material (with oceans more still to come). The deep psychological problems of today will intensify greatly. A correct diagnosis is needed for a correct cure.”
The principles contained in this edition are age old and well-tested. I have fine-tuned them for today and the dayssoon to come. As we approach the end of this age of grace, these issues will multiply at an astounding rate. There is wonderful, glorious victory, exclusively for those who are of God.
Blessing, calm collected confidence, contentment, peace, tranquillity are here!
Sin, evil wickedness, judgement, truth, righteousness, holiness:
The headline, above and the image below, very succinctly describe and define the entire problem, solution, answer and the result.
The cross is the barrier, the impassable gulf, which separates the red from the blue. If you remove the cross you can’t get to the blue - ever! (Luke 16:26)
●The word sin means, “to miss the mark”, or “wander from the path” or “to violate God’s law.”
●The word evil means, “rooted in sin, bad, morally diseased, blind in a spiritual sense.”
●The word wicked means “guilty one, criminal, morally wrong, condemned, ungodly”.
These are not just word meanings! These, in particular have a powerful evil ‘anointing’ behind them creating slavery!
So, that’s man’s problem and everyone is born into the problem. The only way to deal with it all is through judgement. The cross is the instrument of judgement to salvation for the believer. Unbelievers await a terrifying judgement with no salvation, still to come.
Evil is essentially a person. His name is Satan. He does not like being restrained. That’s like keeping him in hand-cuffs.
Evil has many ‘sons’ which rear their cursed heads along the way. It is our job to behead them. If not they escape detection and cause much chaos.
The oldest son of Evil is named ‘pride.’ He is sneaky and deadly.
Pride is Satan’s ‘anointing’ on people! It flows down, lubricating the victim to serve Satan.
Many Christians mistake pride in a minster for anointing. They will both fall in the ditch.
Even the disciples did not see or recognise the proud traitor Judas, in their midst. (Joh17:12)
The world will fall for the antichrist. They will think his pride is God’s anointing! (1 John 2:18)
The wonderful, hidden safety net for today:
The world is going crazy. Many Christians are jumping on the crazy-wagon too. If ever there is a time for urgent, protective armour it is now. If you do not have this spiritual armour, I wish you the best of luck on your journey to crazy-land - psychological hell!
Spiritual armour is kept for distribution at God’s military depot called “The Armoury of Gifts.”
A most important, critical, yet largely ignored, piece of armour is your conscience. It is part of the “helmet of salvation.” (Ephesians 6:17)
A godly conscience is one of the convicting forces in your heart. Set it over your thoughts.
Your conscience is your very own judge residing in your heart. You can accept its ruling, or reject it. It doesn’t make decision for you, it just enlightens or condemns. A seared conscience is a most dangerous thing. It leaves you aimlessly adrift in this crazy world. (1Timothy 4:2)
A seared conscience is like leprosy, which deadens your nerve receptors to pain, leaving you vulnerable to much injury.
How do you sear your conscience? You do so by turning away from God’s word and comparing yourself with others and the world around you. You use your intellect and reason, above God’s word, and you do it often. You refuse to repent and obey the still-small voice in your heart.
If you have seared your conscience as a believer, it will be replaced with Satan’s conscience, which will alert you to the will of the masses, while you turn against God.
The believers conscience is one with the Holy Spirit, and alive to God. But when seared, you become alive to Satan’s will and program. A godly conscience is one of your saving graces in this day!
This is especially evident in teachers of the gospel. Once they have seared their conscience, their hearts are hardened in their pride. They then change established doctrine and attack those not in their sinking ship with them.
The majority of Christians today have a seared conscience. You can see it by what they listen to, watch, spend their time on, and by their neutrality on the big sin-issues of the day. They have no compunction, remorse, contrition and no repentance. They have stabbed their own conscience in the heart.
A seared conscience makes you delusional with a propensity to become a moral monster. It gives you a false sense of security, a false peace, and keeps guilt entrenched in you. The end result is that you will be totally useless to God and His kingdom.
A seared conscience opens the door to much demonic activity, and leads you right into many curses. If you are silent in the face of so much evil and error today, that is proof enough that your conscience is seared and you are on the doorstep of hell.
We see a classic case of people with a seared conscience in Romans 1:18 and onwards, where these people who practise or support homosexuality have been handed over to be controlled by their lusts. Three times in this one chapter they are handed over! Their conscience is gone.
In the tribulation period we see masses tuning on God and cursing Him because of the judgements, – all a sign of people with a seared conscience!
Here is a great description of a person with a seared conscience (In contra-position):
Psalm 119:53 “Indignation (Lit=horror) has taken hold of me because of the wicked who forsake your word.”
That shows David with a godly conscience. Those with a seared conscience have no horror at the world’s wickedness and are therefore totally useless to God’s kingdom, although they dance and prance around the pulpit, leading their blind ones.
Today the world is speeding into unrestrained evil and doom, and yet most of the church sits idly by, giving silent, moral support to the devil, because they have no conscience anymore. With your conscience seared you are well on the way to becoming a Christian psychopath!
The good news is that you can get a godly conscience back again, if you have seared it. But it is very costly. You will have to change your ways, your friends, your thinking and all your priorities. Our Lord is the God of many second chances!
The restrainer of evil:
The well-taught Christian knows well that they themselves are the biblical “restrainer”. The true church, filled with the Spirit of God restrains the antichrist from being released into the world, which is soon to come. (2 Thessalonians 2:6)
In a certain wonderful sense, a godly conscience is our own personal restrainer. Do you see why a seared conscience is so dangerous? It’s because the family of Satan – sin, evil and wickedness, come in like a flood.
I hope you see where else this takes us!
A pre-tribulation rapture of the restraining force – the church, must occur before the antichrist can even appear on the world stage.
The rapture leaves the world with no conscience and no restraint of evil! Yes, Israel will take over the great commission in the tribulation, but in the face of terrible evil.
The heart of the criminal mind is to come against its restrainer of evil, which to them is the law. If you remove the restraining law, you have anarchy and a world of evil and sin. In this regard, the law of the land is a type of the Spirit-filled church – the restrainer.
The Old Covenant law was also a restrainer of evil. On the day of Pentecost, it was removed and shifted into the hearts of believers. What happened then? The dispensation changed to the church age. Now we are on verge of the rapture of the church – those with the law in their hearts. What will happen? How right you are! Yes, the dispensation will change again, completing Daniel’s 70th week, amidst unrestrained evil and wickedness!
The end result of the effects of the cross and the Great White Throne judgment is: An end of transgression and sin and everlasting righteousness. (Daniel 9:24)
Modern man – with the heart of a dumb turkey:
Jeremiah 10:23 “O Lord, I know the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man who walks to direct his own steps.”
Jeremiah 17:5 “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart departs from the Lord.”
Note the two verses below:
**Isaiah 7:9 “...If you will not believe, you will not be established.”
**Isaiah 54:14 “In righteousness you shall be established.”
Note the two verses below:
**Isaiah 59:8-9 “They have made themselves crooked paths; whoever takes that way shall not know peace. Therefore justice is far from us. We look for light, but there is darkness! For brightness but we walk in blackness.”
**Isaiah 32:17 “The work of righteousness will be peace and the effects of righteousness quietness and assurance forever.”
So, in these four verses above we see two clear cut distinct ways and options, with no middle ground and with clear results.
I often wonder why God said in His word “I set before life and death, blessing and cursing – choose life.” (Deuteronomy 30:19) Well, isn’t that obvious! Why say “choose life”? Apparently people are dumb turkeys and need a little help from their God.
The value of the counsel of the secular psychologist is no more than gobble, gobble, gobble!
Biblical psychology blows secular psychology out of the water – never the twain shall meet!
At the end of the day, secular psychology makes you hard-hearted. Biblical psychology makes you humble-hearted and a recipient of the miracle workings of the cross.
The main thing with all forms of secular psychology is not to make you better, but to change your value system under the auspices of the chief shrink – Satan. All modern psychology tries to take you back into the recesses of your mind to find things, situations or people to pin the blame on for your erratic behaviour or stress.
We go back too, all the way to the cross. We pin all the blame for all our sin on that cross and we are free indeed – forever!
The only way you can fix all the psychological problems of mankind is by going back – far back and being unborn of Adam and then being born-again of the “last Adam.” Then you can receive and know the counsel of God and His wonderful ways.
Psalm 50:15 “Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you and you shall glorify Me.”
No matter how far back you go, you run into Adam! His unredeemed blood is actually the root of the problems and only the blood of Messiah at the cross can fix it. That’s why secular psychology fails totally – they go back and look in the wrong place!
When your psychologist takes you back to find someone to blame, you end up blaming them and holding them in unforgiveness. You charge them and hold them guilty, but it makes you a monster, because unforgiveness makes you guilty and that eats you alive and makes you a hot-head!
Bear in mind that the believer going to the unbelieving psychologist receives a transfer of illigitimate spirits as well, further compounding his problems. When, in counsil, we go back to our Lord and His word, we receive the additional transfer of His pure Spirit.
Only the Bible under the leading of the Spirit of God has all the answers to man’s problems.
Man is accountable for his own actions. People don’t like that. They want to pin the blame on others so that their own sin-nature can go free.
Psalm 18:1-6 “I will love You, O Lord my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; my God, my strength...In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried out to my God. He heard my voice from His temple and my cry came before His ears.”
Psalm 18:20 “The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands, He has recompensed me.”
If you are born again of the Spirit of God, learn to beat a path to your heart. There you will find a wellspring of pure undefiled holy truth, stillness and quiet. It’s there – right in your heart.
The unbeliever beats a path to his heart and finds it pumping Adam’s sin-filled blood, polluted with the law of the sin-nature, which is sin and death.
With a clear, well-defined, biblical point of reference in our lives for all things we can fly high and right. Our world view becomes clear and we are free.
I recall in my younger days as a pilot, we were taught always to turn to, and trust our instruments when we couldn’t see the horizon clearly, due to imbedded clouds. Sometimes as I looked out of the cockpit, I would see false horizons in the clouds, which normally cause you to trim the aircraft wrongly. But the instruments said: “Hey watch out buddy, your eyes are deceiving you!”
In this day of many dark dangerous clouds, only the ‘instruments’ of God’s word are truly correct and safe to keep you secure and right with God. He is our glorious reference point for all things.
Isaiah 33:6 “Wisdom and knowledge (of God) will be the stability of your times and strength of salvation; the fear of the Lord is His treasure.”
What an amazing verse (above.) We need this stability in these end-times! That word “stability” comes from the root word for “gyro.” Gyroscopic instruments are used to set the course of an aircraft as well as giant ships, sailing through the storms.
Human rights and the media:
People get easily offended and become a lit fuse when their human rights, especially the ones given by Satan, are challenged.
You may get your rights, but beware, one of these days you will be shown no mercy. You will get justice for all your hidden sin!
When you yield to a situation it brings in grace. It releases forgiveness and makes right. When your self-life is offended try yielding!
Obviously we don’t yield to the devil, but in personal relationships, it works wonders.
When you won’t let an offence against you go, you are harbouring bitterness, and it will bounce back on you. A root of bitterness poisons many! (Hebrews 12:15)
Psalm 119:165 “Great peace have they that love Your word and nothing causes them to be offended.”
The mark of godly maturity is when we don’t please self, but deny and die to self. Taking up our cross means laying down our lives for others.
The mass-media teaches you unforgiveness and revenge. They make you hard hearted and proud. They lead you to the heart of the devil. The true work of the cross does not enter the hard-hearted. Ask Israel about that!
Isaiah 30:1 “Woe to the rebellious children, says the Lord, who take counsel, but not of Me, and who devise plans, but not of My Spirit, that they may add sin to sin.” (Media)
“Taking counsel, not of Me,” is taking counsel from the media and the masses. Note that the sin they produce expands, grows and intensifies!
Jeremiah 7:28 “You shall say to them, ‘This is a nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God, nor receive correction. Truth has perished and been cut off from their mouth.’” (Media)
The media can only lead you the wrong way because they are born of Adam and driven by the proud god of this world – Satan. They are 'annointed' by him!
How do you know whether you are on the right track? ●You will overcome Satan, sin, the world, the flesh and the demonic. ●You will live with a deep inner contentment and inner peace. ●Your lifestyle will be holy. ●You will be led out of all error and into all truth and ●see things to come.
In my own case, personally, because I believe we are very close to all these end time events breaking out, I have spent a lot of prayerful time in general repentance, fasting, and examining my faith, with special emphasis on cleaning up every aspect of my thought life.
Those going the wrong way will always be unstable, have an inner restlessness, and never be satisfied. They will be unable to overcome sin and the world, and will be blind to biblical things to come.
A wrong diagnosis will result in a wrong cure, which exacerbates the problem!
Genesis 6:5 “The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continuously.”
Man is accountable. The secular psychologist will never use the word sin. They pass no judgement on sin. Renaming sin is legitimising it.
Psalm 51:4 David: “Against You only have I sinned.”
Renaming sin does not remove its heart and change it to righteousness. Only the cross removes sin and delivers you to righteousness. If you remove the cross, you have to replace it with something. Psychologists replace the cross with useless psycho-babble!
If the psychologist could have total success with someone, that person would still end in hell.
1 John 3:21 “If our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God.”
Satan, with his agents, the media and the secular psychologist, camouflage the sin-nature and disguises it, making it your great friend! But that nagging guilt hangs in there, refusing to go, and wreaks havoc.
Modern thinking has simply removed the word sin, or rationalised it, but its heart remains evil, full of Satan and his ways!
If you reject the ways of God, you have to believe that man is inherently good.
The fear of God is the way to stability. The fear of God includes the fear of hell! That is the way to mental health.
The closer to God you get, the more dramatic the changes will be in you and the more rocked, shocked and astounded you will be...all for glory!
It’s a true glory story!
Psalm119:108 “Teach me your judgements, Lord and I will learn righteousness.”
There is a way out of stress, strain and anxiety. You can leave your mental ball and chain behind. Stop playing the blame game – there are no winners.
Our Lord is calling you to a new holiness a new dimension of your walk with Him. You must be different, above, flying higher than before. Turn your back on the cowards of the word walling in the cow-dung
Isaiah 43:13 “...I work and who can reverse it?”
So, just join the winners! – Choose life.
I took the background picture in the Okavango Delta and combined it with one of my elephant sunset pictures.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
