|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.|

- 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 450: January 1st 2019
We get ready, the world get’s “ready”
The Bible verse for the year 2019 is:
Proverbs 28:4 “If you forsake the word of God you will praise the wicked.”
That verse above, can be applied to so many situations. I am applying it to 2019
Isaiah 30:8 “Now go and write it before them on a tablet, and note it on a scroll that it may be for time to come – forever and ever.” (This verse was foundational for this ministry – still is.)
We get ready because we see our Lord’s coming getting closer every day. We also see the world’s god, Satan getting closer. The world gets ready for the antichrist in total blindness. They don’t even acknowledge his existence, nor see our Lord’s soon coming.
The unsaved don’t know that they are getting ready! They don’t know that spiritual forces of wickedness are leading them, and driving them down, down, down. They “praise the wicked.”
Their “readiness” leaves them unready, empty, exposed and open for the coming slaughter!
The year ahead for the world:
The defining moment of 2018 is the announcement of the US withdrawal from Syria.
It has profound 2019 implications. It will result in a most important war prophetically. It will end in the destruction of Damascus, (Isaiah17) which will lead to the Ezekiel 38&39 war dubbed WW111, which will be just before or just into the tribulation period.
As regular readers know, I place the rapture of the true church here, before the tribulation.
Both of these wars, and others prophesied for this time period, will involve Israel and see the start of her large scale spiritual eye-opening and veil-lifting.
2 Chronicles 20:29 “The fear of God was on all those kingdoms of those countries when they heard that Lord had fought against the enemies of Israel.”
This will not be a year of love and peace for the world. It will be a year of hate and war – intensified. Hatred by the unsaved for the saved, and for Israel, will escalate dramatically.
This will be the year of war! It will be war amongst nations, war against Israel, war against the true church and its truth, and war for your soul.
This will be the year of an increase in witchcraft and occult activity of various sorts. These satanic activities have the goal of controlling people. Much of it will filter into the compromised church.
“Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft.” (1 Samuel 15:22-23) Where there is rebellion to God witchcraft follows. This is the lot for the end-time world.
Witchcraft is a cursed work in the church too. (Galatians 3:1-10) “Who has bewitched you?” It substitutes grace for rules. The result of all manifestations of legalistic witchcraft in the church is a curse, not just an error. You don’t get free without specific spiritual deliverance.
Man thinks that man’s problems are due to his environment, both on a personal and a macro level. But the truth is; all man’s problems are due to sin in the heart and this is increasing dramatically in these days.
This will be the year the mass-media manifests the beast in its heart shamelessly and blatantly. The world is programming its own, through the media, with its own “truth” emanating from the “father of lies.”
For world peace, the world’s way, the cross which is exclusive, must be removed and the law of God must be cast down so that the law of the world and its god can come in.
The law of the world is: “Do what you will” and “Me now.”
This is going to be a year of upheavals in the natural world like never before.
The only solution is the cross.
The year ahead for believers:
John 12:13 “They took branches from the palm trees and went out to meet Him crying, ‘Hosanna, blessed is the king of Israel that comes in the name of the Lord.”
●Hosanna (Strong’s G 5614): The word comes from the Hebrew root word - Strong’s H 3467, “Yasha.” Meanings: Salvation, set us free, victory, preserved, avenged!
The palm tree and branches are biblical symbols of victory, triumph and eternal life. Do you see how the symbol of the palm ties up with the word meanings above?
Hosanna is forever tied to our Lord’s entrance to Jerusalem.
2019 will mark the entrance of our Lord into Jerusalem, not physically yet, but by His Spirit in relation to His saving work with Israel. Hosanna to the Lord!
This will be the year for many Christians to experience “Hosanna” in its fullness.
As we get near to Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets) we will see and know if all theses word meanings above are about play out in rapture. I think so!
Revelation 7:9 “After these things I looked and behold, a great multitude, which no one could number, of the nations, tribes, peoples and tongues, standing before the throne of the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands.”
Palm branches are etched into the Millennium temple (not the third temple) Ezekiel 40 – 44.
Many believers will move forward in leaps and bounds with our Lord this year, the wave of salvation sweeping the eastern half of the world, and the Middle East will increase.
Job 36:7 “He does not withdraw His eyes from the righteous; but they are on the throne with kings, for He has seated them there forever, and they are exalted.”
Many sleeping Christians will awake with a huge jolt, but others will go to satanic sleep!
Many will backslide and fall away due to the intense pressures of this year. (Applied pressure strengthens some, and causes some to give up.)
Backsliding always begins in the heart.
Job 8:12-13 “While the plant is yet green and not cut down, it withers before any other plant. So are the paths of all who forget God. The hope of the hypocrite shall perish.”
The judgement of rewards for believers will show how much you have been conformed to Him.
This will be the year of a clash of truths -The real truth and the watered down compromised truth, which is a real lie. The true wisdom of God has stood forever and will continue to stand. All those who mess with it will fall.
1 Corinthians 2:7-8 “We speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew, for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.”
We have been hidden in Messiah. (Colossians 3:3) When He appears we will be like Him. (1 John 3:2) We will appear fully saved, body, mind and spirit and full of glory.
Be careful of the company you keep! It does have effects on you. Be careful of the customs and traditions you participate in – they do have effects on you. Even the city you live in may have effects on your spiritual progress.
It is vital as a believer, especially a young believer, to have a spiritual father, be it a church a ministry or a person.
The greatest problem in the Christian world today – by far, is ignorance of the word of God, inspired and led by the Spirit. This creates an ill-prepared and equipped army in the face of the biggest troubles ever to hit the world.
The root cause is no fear of the Lord.
Don’t water down the fear of the Lord or change its meaning as many do. You will never even see the benefits if you do. When you put all the verses together relating to the fear of the Lord, it will produce in you: The terror of the Lord, trembling, repentance, and brokenness.
Multitudes of incredible, deeply rooted benefits stem from the fear of the Lord.
You don’t go to heaven in the rapture because you believed everything correctly about the rapture! You go to heaven because your heart is right. Your heart can be right with God from day one of salvation, while other things get in line and follow along.
One of the beautiful aspects, of the glory of eschatology is not just the coming of the Lord, but it is also the destruction of the final enemy which is death itself and Satan’s fruits of sin, temptation, disease, war, hatred, murder, lies, and all things not of God.
Isn’t it wonderful when you meet someone and discover that they’re a brother or sister in the Lord? It’s as though you’ve known them all your life. Then you discover that they know nothing about eschatology and have no interest because their church has formed them that way! It spoils your day.
It’s becoming quite rare to find people with a fully open heart to God and all of His word.
Treasure people that strike you in the heart! It is God’s doing.
The year ahead – Admonitions and warnings:
As the birth of our Lord approached, the message from the prophets was “Repent for the kingdom is at hand.” (Matthew 3:2) That is the case now. There is no neutrality. Repent or perish. (Luke 13:5)
Repentance, much like the fear of the Lord, produces many wonderful things including stability.
This year will see a flood of false prophets, false teachings and heresy, all trying to attack God in you.
Beware of those with private and new interpretations of scripture, especially when they contradict other doctrines or verses. Beware of those who blindly follow other blind guides. “Fools feed on foolishness.” (Proverbs 15:14)
Beware of new doctrines. New doctrines are always false!
Beware of those in pride seeking admiration. They and their wolflings are in grave danger.
Beware of all teaching and doctrine that interferes with Gods’ call and plan for Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews. In many cases it’s subliminal.
Beware of all ministries that are silent on God’s plans for Israel. Run, run as fast as you can to get away from all ministries of replacement theology! If you get on the wrong side of God on this issue at this time, it will have eternal consequences for you!
Don’t join or follow a cut-off, severed branch – there are many, especially on YouTube!
Beware of ministries not centred in the New Covenant epistles. Beware of ministries of pride, in legalism and trying to bring you under the law. They are cursed, and will get worse.
Beware of ministries that won’t touch eschatology.
Beware of complacency with God. We are at the very tail end of the grace of God in terms of a dispensation. We are close to the transition time to wrath. God can, does, and will cause an entire rebellious nation to fall into greater error! Have a look at the verse below!
Isaiah 30:28 “His breath is like an overflowing stream, which reaches 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.
The “bridle” above, is their own pride and rebellion to God.
God’s response to the world’s rebellion is most politically incorrect. He laughs at the nations raging at Him. (Psalm 2:1-5) He does not open a dialogue of discussion, After a good laugh at them, He destroys them in His wrath!
Beware of love and good: The modern humanism-based church has set up good as God and love as a means to salvation.
People talk a lot about love. They say – all you need is love. Then everything will be okay.
People say that love is of God and God is love, so that’s all we need. They are right, but so wrong! Love is a person. In fact more than that, love is a crucified and resurrected person. If God is love, without the cross that love is hatred and ends in hell.
What is love? The Bible says: “Greater love has no man than he lay down his life for another.” So love is the cross of Calvary – the only, exclusive instrument of salvation.
Goodness and love are fruits. Fruits do not save you because they didn’t die for you.
The new church in line with new world thinking, does not recognise absolute truth. It has no fear of the Lord. It has no division between the holy and the unholy. It has no repentance, no obedience. It believes more in Santa Clause than the cross of Calvary! It is inoffensive to all but God.
There is an amazing principle of deterioration revealed in Ezekiel 22:25-29. It shows corruption setting in from the prophets to priests to princes to the people! How amazing, and how true!
It’s good to always bear in mind that as goes the spiritual, so goes the natural!
Israel is awakening:
Proverbs 25:11 “A word fitly (timely) spoken and in due season is like apples of gold.”
Israel, here is your apple of gold:
Israel, it is your time. Your enemies surround you, but your God is with you and for you and on your side. You, together with your God, will have the last laugh! (Psalm 2:4)
Psalm 17:8-9 “Keep me as the apple of Your eye; hide me under the shadow of Your wings, from the wicked who oppress me, from my deadly enemies who surround me.”
Zechariah 2:8 “He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you (Israel) touches the apple of His eye.”
The “church” never defended the Jews when they were persecuted, particularly in the Holocaust. In fact, the Catholic church murdered millions of Jews in the inquisitions.
The silent churches have shown their colours – the flag of surrender and capitulation to the world and its god. (Luke 11:23)
Now, you spineless churches - don’t stand in Israel’s way when they, with God’s backing, defend themselves! In fact many churches today are stumbling blocks to Israel.
I see many believe that the USA will not stand with Israel when she is in conflict. I do not believe that. Yes President Trump has ordered the Syria pullout. But when things really heat up the US will be there. Either way, Israel will prevail.
Ezekiel 37:10 “So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them (dry bones), and they lived and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.”
Note in this amazing verse above, of the valley of dry bones (Israel in rebellion) coming to life, we see more than that. They arise as a great army. The timing is not coincidental.
In 1948 one day after Israel’s miracle birth in a day, (Isaiah 66:8) five Arab armies attacked her in what became known as the War of Independence. Israel, surprisingly won with a rag-tag volunteer army. This was an exact parallel of the Egyptian armies pursuing the children of Israel immediately after they were let go by Pharaoh.
This will be the case again as Israel comes to salvation, beginning in one day. The world will immediately attack, beginning the seven-year tribulation in which the whole world will lose.
Remember that God directed David’s stone to the head of Goliath, killing him. The same will be true as God defends Israel in coming conflicts.
The two verses below show the tragedy of Israel’ rebellion causing them to become a “reproach” and then the spectacular turn around as she is regathered and comes back to life:
Daniel 9:16-17 “O Lord, according to Your righteousness, I pray, let Your anger and Your fury be turned away from Your city, Jerusalem, Your holy mountain; because of our sins and the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and Your people have become a reproach to all who are around us...Cause Your face to shine on Your sanctuary, which is desolate.”
Zephaniah 3:20 “At that I will bring you back and gather you. For I will give you (Israel) fame and praise among all the peoples of the earth...”
Let’s have a look at another incredible portion of end-time scripture relating to how God will bring Israel back, save her and use her as an instrument of destruction and war on many nations:
Micah 4:11-13 “Many nations have gathered against you (Israel), who say ‘Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion.’ But they do not know the thoughts of the Lord, nor understand His counsel. He will gather them like sheaves to the threshing floor. Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion; for I will make your horn iron, and I will make your hooves of bronze; you shall beat in pieces many peoples. I will consecrate their gain to the Lord, and their substance to the Lord of the whole earth.”
“Iron” in the verse above is a type of crushing strength in the Bible and “Brass” a type of judgement.
Jeremiah 31:4 “Again, I will build you, and you shall be rebuilt, O virgin of Israel! You shall again be adorned with your tambourines, and shall go forth in the dances of those who rejoice (Lit= dance of the merrymakers.)
Isaiah 35:10 “The ransomed of the Lord will return and come to Zion with singing, with everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.”
Please don’t ever forget this simple, yet most profound collection of just a few words. These few words are more important than all the books on world history ever written! These few words will have massive, eternal consequences for those that believe them and those that reject them:
Israel:●Elected ●Rebelled ●Rejected ●Regathered ●Repented ●Accepted ●Used of God.
►Pray, praise and proclaim the word of God .Prayer must be warlike but with tears! Be vigilant, watchful, defensive and offensive to the enemy in your prayer.
Be eagerly expectant of the Lords coming. That rules out the majority!
Daniel 11:32 “...The people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.”
Eschatology is absolutely vital for your spiritual health. It is becoming more and more significant and important now, even as it is attacked and cast down.
To ignore prophecy is to ignore God. There is a great danger in ignorance of prophecy. “If you won’t hear Yeshua the prophet – you will be utterly destroyed! “(Acts 3:23)
Our rewards are compared to a number of things in the Bible. One of them is a wedding garment! Some will have a pure white wedding garment full of big holes!
Hosanna, hosanna – many blessing to you!
Strength for the year! This is a mix of an elephant and baobab tree picture of mine.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
