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!
Help in troubled times:
The US economy is strong, as are the major world economies, but we are seeing critical cracks in then all as they slow! Technical indicators are pointing to a world recession. The most reliable indicator is the US bond-yield curve inversion. I won’t go into details, because, it’s not our thing. It is a reliable recession indicator.
The timing of this lines up with so many other prophetic events, soon to come. Once a recession begins it escalates into many other areas.
A recession does not mean a market crash is on the horizon, although that’s always possible, based on sudden falling sentiment, which spreads like lightning. It means hard times are coming.
Why mention this? It is because these things affect the whole world, including Christians. Are you able to withstand coming troubles? Yes, the worst will be in the tribulation, but we are in the forerunner period now.
Many believers will be casting out economic recession demons, to no avail. Many will be asking why, why, why! It’s often a different story when your own family is involved. Are we as believers all family?
It’s difficult to recognise other believers as such, and as part of our very own family, with who we will be spending eternity. Through the new birth, we are brought together by the blood of our Lord.
Troubles in the world demand your attention and focus, but if you let them eat into you, they will damage you, discourage you, lead you astray and rob you of your coming reward. These troubles in the world will be temporary and will soon make way for a new glorious eternity!
The things of the Spirit of God are real and alive. You can’t think through to spiritual reality with your intellect or understanding, but you can and must see and get rid of the obstructions to the Spirit of God being released in and through you to other people.
God’s word – the truth, is your anchor and your hope. It is your reality and it is the source of your help and for others in trouble. It is His ancient word, a miracle and a mystery that is still so relevant today, in interpretation and application! What is amazing to me is that God’s word is so ancient, yet so true. It outlines the very reason why fallen modern man will reject it. It shows that modern man has another, modern gospel, chopped and changed to suite the sin-loving, compromised masses!
Ancient metal Bibles found in Jordan:
John 6:63 “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you, they are spirit and are life.”
Proverbs 23:23 “Buy the truth and do not sell it, also wisdom, instruction and understanding.”
Psalm 62:5 “My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him.”
Note the amazing things in the verses above: Truth, wisdom, instruction and understanding are essential in these days. The source is exclusively, the Spirit of God, turning words to life!
In the face of troubles, people run to all sorts of sources for help, including the occult. There they find comfort and relief from Satan himself, in disguise, for a short while – then he kills!
But people also run to stable believers for help, are you able to really help them in the things of God and the things that will matter for eternity?
Whatever remains untouched by the work of the cross and the Spirit in of God in you, remains untouched in others too. It is the way of the mystery of the work of the cross that draws people to our King and Lord. These, the broken ones, carrying their cross, are the beautiful ones in these days.
Psalm 42:7 “Deep calls under deep!”
You can do many good things in life, all devoid of the Spirit of God and amounting to a big zero.
2 Corinthians 4:10 “We carry around in our body the death of Yeshua, so that His life may revealed in our bodies.”
What a staggering verse that is? We carry death to produce life!
Have you thought of the fact you are walking containers of the mystery of the death of our Lord – salvation for others?
Romans 6:5 “If we have been united with Him in His death, we will also be united with Him in resurrection.”
Are you able to accurately help seeking believers on all the issues of Israel, Jerusalem, the Jews and the plan of God for them? I tell you, we might know these things well, but the great majority of believers worldwide are in the dark on this incredible and exciting subject.
As a result of their darkness they are vulnerable to be Satan’s “light.”
Edition 463: April 2nd 2019
Golan, Gaza and more.
These are words of life!
The Golan Heights, Gaza, the status of Jerusalem, the West Bank, Hezbollah, Hamas, Iran, Syria, Turkey and Russia are all on the stage at the moment. Some are still emerging from the sidelines, but it’s all coming to a head right now. Age-old prophecies are all lining up.
Those who don’t know Bible prophecy and those who scoff at, and mock it, are in the dark. They don’t see the significance in any of these things. It’s just like any old normal, blind day to them.
President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu have brought these to the fore, and amazingly, it’s all spelt out in Bible prophecy in detail, including the timing of soon-coming dramatic conflicts.
In this edition I want to reveal some amazing, little-known Bible prophecies about these things.
I’m not a military man, and you would know that The Prophetic Scroll (TPS) does not centre on the military as such. But for some odd reason, according to emails, many military top brass including generals are regular readers of TPS. I don’t know if they are all saved, but I do know that some are.
The issue is this. If you are a leader of a military force, you can go into your secret place and plan things your own way. Or you can study all the very public strategies of God, and His enemy, and then go into His secret place to get the finer details! Know this: That is the way it will go, like it or not.
How good it must be as a military strategist to know the end from the beginning and to know who wins and loses, and even to know where various battle grounds will be and why. (Isaiah 46:10)
We are now in the time when military preparedness is of utmost importance. So, military personnel and associates - read, study and know these things. You are going to need them very soon! It’s always a good idea to be on the winning side!
After Donald Trump signed a decree recognising Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan, Israel has responded immediately in kind, by granting a Golan Heights oil drilling licence to an American company. For some time now tests in the area have indicated that there are large oil and gas deposits right there. This could be a part of the reason for WW111.
There is something odd about the ancient Persian King – Cyrus. God used him to restore Israel and to restore the temple in Jerusalem. We see Cyrus appearing in a number of verses – prophetically. His doings will be related to the original.
Some say modern day Cyrus is President Trump. I don’t know of anyone else who fits the bill. To me that’s not coincidence! And please don’t give me the garbage that God can’t use Trump because he is not a holy man. Go and look in the mirror – turkey! Yes God can even use turkeys.
By the way, Netanyahu just referred to Trump as a modern Cyrus a few days ago, after the signing of the Golan recognition.
Isaiah 44:28 “He says of Cyrus, he is My shepherd, and he shall perform all My pleasure, even saying to Jerusalem, ‘You shall be built’ and to the temple, ‘Your foundation shall be laid.’”
Isaiah 45:1 “To Cyrus, who’s right hand I have held – to subdue nations before him and loose the armour of kings, to open before him the double doors...”
The destruction of Islam by Israel:
The Bible does not speak of Islam itself, but of the Arab nations, the Palestinians and the enemies of Israel, in the region. They are all Islamic, so, simply by extension when we see the prophesied destruction of these nations / peoples, it includes Islam.
Ezekiel 21:31-32 “I will pour out My indignation on you (God’s enemies); I will blow on you with the fire of My wrath, and deliver you into the hands of brutal men who are skilful to destroy. You shall be fuel for the fire; your blood shall be in the midst of the land (Israel). You shall not be remembered.”
Zechariah 9:13 “I have bent Judah, (Jews) My bow, fitted the bow with Ephraim, and raised up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece, and made you like the sword of a mighty man.”
Greece, in this verse is prophetically speaking of Europe and perhaps certain Arab nations.
The cause of the destruction of Islam and many Arab nations is their own evil heart. They have voiced their major desire for ages – to destroy Israel.
Turkey has just called for the 57 Muslim nations to unite in destroying Israel. Only a few months ago, the leader of the Palestinian Authority said: “The war to destroy Israel has started.” Iran has said numerous times that it wants to “wipe Israel off the map.” They do not mean destroying Israel only. In the capital of Iran there is a large sign saying: “Israel must vanish from the entire world.”
It is true that right now we are seeing some Arab nations beginning to align themselves with Israel. That is a miracle in the making, but also part of prophecy, which I won’t deal with now. (Isaiah 19)
Add to Israel’s enemies, all anti-Semites of the world and all Christians of replacement theology. They are all in God’s firing line!
Who are the occupiers?
Obadiah 1:19-21 “The inhabitants of the south shall possess (Lit=occupy) the mountains of Esau, and the inhabitants of the Philistine lowland...The saviours shall come to Mount Zion to judge the mountains of Esau, and the kingdom shall be the Lord’s.”
Joseph had a Gentile (Egyptian) wife who bore him two sons – Ephraim and Manasseh The name “Ephraim” means: “God has made me fertile.”
Ephraim is often seen as, and refers to the ten tribes of Israel, scattered abroad. By extension, Ephraim is also seen by many to be the Israel-loving church, because Ephraim has a spiritual side.
The failure of Ephraim to remove the Canaanites from the Promised Land as commanded by God, is the very reason for the present day Palestinian problem. It is also the tragic reason the church is filled with Babylon! (Exodus 23:24-25, Judges 1:29, Joshua 16:10.)
Ephraim’s brother Manasseh had the dubious reputation of rebuilding the pagan “high places” of satanic worship in the land of Israel. Again, this speaks of Babylonian, occult practices in the church, like Christmas and Easter.
Hosea 5:5-7 “The pride of Israel testifies to his face; therefore Israel and Ephraim stumble in their iniquity, Judah also stumbles with them...They have dealt treacherously with the Lord, for they have begotten pagan children. Now a new moon shall devour them and all their heritage.”
In the Bible we see the amazing power of God’s forgiveness. Ephraim becomes a major end time work of God, but not Manasseh!
If Ephraim relates to the end-time pro-Israel church, as it does, surprising things are coming. Manasseh may be identified with the anti-Israel end-time church, which by default is pro-Islam’s occupation of Israel.
Jeremiah 31:18 “I have heard Ephraim bemoaning himself after being chastised. Restore me and I will return...Surely after my turning, I repented...”
Ezekiel 37:16-17 “Son of man, take a stick for yourself and write on it: ‘For Judah and the children of Israel, his companions, then take another stick and write on it, ‘for Joseph the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel, his companions.’ Then join them one to another for yourself.” (The “companions” here are the pro-Israel church)
Zechariah 10:6-9 “I will strengthen the house of Judah, and will save the house of Joseph. I will bring them back because I have mercy on them. They shall be as though I had not cast them aside; for I am the Lord their God and I will hear them. Those of Ephraim shall be as a mighty man; and their heart shall rejoice as with wine. Yes the children shall see it and be glad; their heart shall rejoice in the Lord...they will remember Me in the far countries.”
Here now is the incredible thing: Israel is returning to the Lord. Israel will be attacked and suffer greatly. Israel will be used by God to bring salvation to the nations in the tribulation. Israel’s enemies will include a section of the pagan-filled Babylonian (worldly) church.
Who are you dear reader? Are you with us or against us? Make up your mind fast, because your eternal blessing or destruction depends on it. (Luke 11:23)
You will not be required to be God’s battle-axe as Israel will, unless you’re in the army. But you are in the army of our Lord and will and are required to stand with and behind God’s battle-axe – Israel. You will stand with or against God and Israel!
Be careful of ignorance in this day of these things. It will cause you to go the wrong way!
And you, churches of silence on these issues now, filled with the world’s goods. You make much shouting, noise about your prosperity, and you are silent on Israel. You are spineless sell-outs. Be happy now with your stupid Ferrari’s and jets. You have your reward. Go and hug your car.
Ezekiel 7:14 “They have blown the trumpet and made everyone ready, but no one goes to battle; for My wrath is on all their multitude.”
Jeremiah 51:19-20”...Israel is the tribe of His inheritance. The Lord of hosts (armies) is His name. You are My battle-axe and weapons of war; for with you I will break the nations in pieces; with you I will destroy kingdoms.”
- US President Trump moved the US Embassy to Jerusalem, giving it recognition as Israel’s capital. This was done on May 14th 2018, the day of Israel’s declaration of independence in 1948.
- The US recognition of Israel’s sovereignty of the Golan was done on Purim, the festival commemorating the defeat of Israel’s enemies!
Way back in ancient history the Golan Heights were given by God to the tribes of Israel. (Joshua 21:27) Today, Syria claims ownership of the territory, backed by the UN and others.
The US has now recognised the Golan Heights as part of Israel, much to the disgust of most nations, including all of Europe. The Golan Heights are strategic for Israel, being on the Syria border. Both Lebanon and Iran have access to Israel through the region. It has an ancient history of enmity towards Israel.
Did you know the Golan situation is part of major end-time Bible prophecy?
►In Bible times the town of Bashan was the centre of the Golan Heights. (A ruin today) It was under the rule of the Amorite king Og, who was slain by Moses. Og was a giant, like Goliath, known as the “long-necked one”. His name means: “Baked in ashes.”
Ezekiel 39:17-18 “Speak to every sort of bird and beast of the field: ‘Assemble yourselves and come together from all sides for My sacrificial meal on the mountains of Israel, that you may eat flesh and drink blood. You shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth...all the fatlings of Basham. (Golan)”
Isaiah 17 speaks of the war in which Damascus, Syria is totally destroyed. Now we see the Ezekiel 38 & 39 war of Gog & Magog, in which numerous nations led by Russia / Iran will result in fiery destruction, perhaps nuclear. Israel’s enemies end up “baked in ashes!”
Today there is much trouble over the Golan Heights. Hezbollah are in the area on the Syrian side, the Syrian army is right there with Russia behind her and Iran in the picture too.
Does the Bashan / Golan prophecy give us an idea when this will take place? It most certainly does!
Jeremiah 50:19-20 “I will bring back Israel to his habitation, and he shall feed on Carmel and Bashan. (Golan) His soul shall be satisfied on Mount Ephraim and Gilead...At that time the iniquity of Israel shall be sought, but there shall be none...for I will pardon those whom I preserve.
So, in these verses above (and others) we see that Bashan / Golan Heights belongs to Israel at the time of her soon coming salvation.
Ezekiel 36:2-5 “Because the enemy has said of you (Israel), ‘Aha, the ancient heights (Golan) have become our possession.’ Therefore prophecy, and say, thus says the Lord, ‘because they made you desolate, and swallowed you up on every side, so that you became the possession of the rest of the nations, and you are taken up by the lips of the talkers and slandered by the people’ – therefore, O mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord God...Surely I have spoken in My burning jealousy against the rest of the nations and against all Edom (modern Palestinians), who gave My land to themselves as a possession, with whole hearted joy and spiteful, scorning minds, in order to plunder its open country.’” Verse 12 “I will cause men to walk on you. My people Israel, shall take possession of you and you shall be their inheritance...”
Numbers 21:33-35 speaks of the king of Bashan coming down from the Golan Heights to attack the children of Israel, just as they were to enter the Promised Land. God told Moses not to fear them because He had prepared the way for Bashan’s utter defeat, with no one surviving. The children of Israel would then take control of Basham / Golan.
The verse above plays out historically, but has a prophetic double reference and application to these days now and Israel’s entry to the Promised Land of salvation.
This conflict may indicate that Syria will be part of the Ezekiel 38 & 39 war. Whichever way you look at it, all the players are on the field and ready to roll!
►The name of the modern leader of Syria is Bashar Hafez al-Assad. Assad means “Lion.” This family name was originally “Wahsh” meaning “savage.” So putting the two together we get a savage lion – an enemy of the Lion of the tribe of Judah (Jews)
Do you see the modern application? As the Jews prepare to enter their Promised Land of salvation, their enemies gather to attack from the Golan Heights. Syria and her allies will be destroyed.
This points powerfully to this war taking place before, or just as the Jews begin to be saved en masse, which is another indicator of a pre-tribulation rapture. It’s all on the doorstep!
At this time the ancient hatred of Esau for Jacob (Arab / Palestinian hatred for Israel) blasts onto centre stage. Gaza, Samaria (West Bank) and the so-called occupied territories are all ready to explode.
Ezekiel 35:5-6 “Because you have an ancient hatred and have shed the blood of the children of Israel by the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, when their iniquity came to an end, “therefore as I live” says the Lord God, “I will prepare you for blood , and blood shall pursue you.” (See also Ezekiel 25:15-16)
Amos 1:6, 7 “For three transgressions of Gaza and for four I will not turn away its punishment, because they took captive the whole captivity, to deliver them up to Edom. But I will send fire on the wall of Gaza.”
Zechariah 9:5 “Ashkelon shall see it and fear; Gaza also shall be very sorrowful...I will cut off the pride of the Philistines (Palestinians).”
Amos 1:13 “To the people of Ammon (Part of the Palestinians today), I will not turn away its punishment, because they ripped open the women with child in Gilead, that they might enlarge their territory.”
Zephaniah 2:8 “I have heard of the reproach of Moab (Palestinians today) and the reviling of the people of Ammon, with which they have reproached My people, and made arrogant threats against their borders.”
We were here first!
This is the age old chant of the Palestinians relating to Israel. It has become the chant of many stupid nations, and their blinded leaders, thanks to the mass-media and their Hitler-like actions:
Since when is “we were here first” a legitimate argument for ownership of land? What hogwash! What if he land was legitimately sold to another? What if God destroyed the previous owners for His purpose and gave it to another? What if they are all simply, historically wrong?
There were various pagan tribes in the land of Israel before the children of Israel got there. But God’s command was to destroy them and for the children of Israel to occupy the land. That nullifies “We were here first.”
Besides that, Esau, the father of the Arabs and Palestinians by extension, sold his birthright to Jacob (Israel) by way of a legitimate, legal transaction. You can’t sell something and then claim it back because you had it first! God Himself recognised the sale!
“We were here first” in spite of a legal transaction is simply the devils method to force Islam into the entire land and destroy the work of God, as revealed in the verses in this edition.
It’s a numbers game. There are more Islamic Muslims all around Israel than Jews. If the land of Israel, by so-called right of return, and the inclusion of the so-called occupied territories was opened to all, Islam would be in the majority. Do you think God is going to allow that and allow Islam to crush His plans? Some idiot wolves in pulpits believe that!
This is all one of the reasons for the greatest conflicts the world has ever seen – about to break and begin in our day!
This is not an issue of modern style democracy, or what you think, or I think, or any nation thinks. It’s all a God issue and it will work out His way, like it or not. Personally, I like it!
Again, as said many times, I and The Prophetic Scroll stand with and for the Lord and His plan for Israel and against God’s enemies in and out of the church.
I took the background picture in the Drakensberg Mountains and the elephant in the Etosha Game Reserve and mixed them together.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
