|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.|

►Next Edition, Lord willing: "Foreboding Forewarning."
- 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 465: April 16th 2019
The Court of the ages:
These are words of life!
These are the issues of eternal life. You will face them soon, like it or not. It is wise to know what’s coming, why, when and what you must do now to prepare!
This edition is primarily aimed at those in authority in various forms. That would be for political leaders down to leaders of their own family and even to you as leader of your own life. There is great responsibility in leadership and authority. We will be judged accordingly.
The Court of the ages: In the dock are all Presidents, Prime Ministers, Kings, Queens and all in governmental authority. In the dock are all the lawyers and judges of the world’s courts. In the dock is the mass-media of the world and all celebrities and entertainers. In the dock is everyone with influential authority – you too!
In the Judges seat is the King of kings and Lord of lords, and Judge of judges.
Daniel 7:9-10 “The Ancient of Days was seated. His garment was white as snow, and His hair was like pure wool. His throne was a fiery flame, its wheels a burning fire. A fiery stream came forth before Him. A thousand thousands ministered to Him; ten thousand times ten thousand, stood before Him. The court was seated, and the books were opened.”
Imagine the horror of getting to the end of your Christian life and discovering that you were in a race all along. Not so much against others but against yourself, and that there were huge rewards laid up for you, which no one had even told you about!
The Courts of God:
The Bible speaks of a number of courts of God, which each have eternal outcomes. The Bible also identifies a number of God’s record books.
Here are some of God’s record books and the things contained therein:
●Your physical features before you were even born. (Psalm 139:16) ●The number of the hairs on your head. (Matthew 10:30) ●All your tears. (Psalm 56:8) ●God’s plans for you. (Psalm 139:17) ●Every thought of man. (Psalm 139:2, Hebrews 4:12) ●Every word you have spoken. (Matthew 12:36) ●Everyone’s works. (Revelation 20:12) ●Your godly works and loves. (Hebrews 6:10, 1 Corinthians 3:14-15) ●Your life’s priorities. (Matthew 6:20) ●Those who have nurtured and developed the fear of God. (Malachi 3:16)
Unlike worldly courts, these will contain perfect judgements - absolutely pure and true. There will be no defence team in these courts, because the Judge will be all knowing! Those who have the work of the cross in their lives will be proclaimed – not guilty of all sin.
All humans are equal in that we are born of sinful Adam. Only true believers have the potential within them, through the new-birth to escape that anchor, and be set free. But the believer still has to work internal salvation to the outside, through correct application of the things of God.
If you commit a great crime and you get away with it for years and years, you may feel invincible. But don’t be fooled, you will stand before the all-knowing, all-seeing Judge of all. At the end of the day, no one gets away with anything, except true born-again Christians! We get away with everything – free, and no price to pay for all our sin!
People go to incredible lengths to justify themselves and cover their sins and lies. They see things only from their own perspective, but God sees even your thoughts and motivations.
In our lives, as Christians, we have to work out perfect inner salvation through to the outside. This begins even in our thoughts!
Some thoughts on thoughts:
“My thoughts are not your thoughts, says the Lord”. (Isaiah 55:8-9) “The thoughts that I have towards you are only good”. (Jeremiah 29:11) “Guard your thoughts”. (Proverbs 4:23) “Take every thought captive and cast down imaginations that exalt against God”. (2 Corinthians 10:5) “Think on these things”...All good and true! (Philippians 4:8)
Beware who you compare yourselves with, and who you aspire to in your thought life. The true Christian is to measure himself by the word of truth, its fruits and blessings. Not by the world, the church, modern man. This produces endless curses.
Proverbs 21:2 “Every way of man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the hearts.”
Proverbs 14:12 “There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is the way of destruction.”
Here’s a very short sweet extremely powerful verse for you. Put it into practise. (I have done so ages ago and renew it often – and it works wonders!)
Job 31:1 “I have made a covenant with my eyes; why then should I look upon a woman (with lust).” (Proverbs 4:25) Obviously this applies to men and women.
Make a covenant and decree with your eyes! By obvious extension, that would include your ears and your thought life. Don’t let your thoughts become a runaway train – it will crash!
This involves you become a strange oddball in the world’s eyes, but a dear, close, good, best friend forever, of the living God.
Let the Spirit of the Lord be your primary instructor:
The media’s men are Satan’s yes men. Hitler could tell you about that! In fact the mass-media are under the same control-spirits as Hitler, just in civilian clothes.
People put their leaders on a pedestal. They give their thoughts and lives to political leaders. They elevate them, just like gods, and it infuses into their psyche and culture.
As a true born-again, Spirit-filled Christian in these days, you need to consciously separate yourself from the spirit of the world, the counterfeit church, and the demonic. You must actively throw off your close identity with the world and its traditions and ways.
The world’s traditions are rooted in error, or the occult. You can’t feed and eat error, and stay spiritually healthy. Being released from it, releases you from invisible curses, and weights.
Applied truth changes you dramatically, making you strangely fireproof! Even as you step into eternity and your unforgiving works are hit by the fire of God’s judgement at the Judgement Seat of Messiah, it quickly dissipates into a puff of smoke! (1 Corinthians 3:14-15)
The importance of knowledge of true history is absolutely vital. Your history is the anchor and foundation of your culture and traditions. Some things within it are fine, others not.
Culture and worship are directly associated, make sure that the Spirit of God enlightens you as to what you may accept and what you must cast out! This is all dramatically important.
Proverbs 5:21-23 “The ways of a man are before the eyes of the Lord, and He ponders all His paths. His own iniquities entrap the wicked man, and he is caught in the cords of his sin. He shall die for lack of instruction, and for the greatness of his folly, he shall go astray.”
Reject Gods wise counsel, and the world will rule you:
I have included the mass-media in this section, because they are the voice of the world and its leaders. They are the voice of their ultimate leader – Satan:
●“The ruler of this world.” (Satan) (John 12:31) ●”The prince of the power of the air.” (Satan). (Ephesians 2:2) ●“The god of this world.” (Satan) (2 Corinthians 4:4). ●“The whole world is in the power of the evil one”. (1 John 5:19)
The media speaks many voices: ●Feeling – the feel-good voice of the body. ●Reason – the voice of “it seems right to me, it must be.” ●Conscience – the modern, variable voice of godlessness. ●Democracy - the collective voice of the masses.
The world and its god will not determine your destiny unless you turn away from the Lord. Hope in the future is in the heart of man. But what a futile hope it is when it is in the world.
Counterfeit Christianity perpetrated by the mass-media must be inoffensive, and cross-less, so that it can easily mix with other religions, rather than be separate.
Deception in all these things is at plague-level. It causes tunnel vision. You can only see your own stupid, cursed hobby-horse and its insane godless riders of demented destruction.
The judgement on the world’s leaders:
I don’t want to add any commentary to these profoundly important verses below. Just read them, simply as they are, taking specific note of the bold sections.
Proverbs 29:12 “If a ruler pays attention to lies, all his servants become wicked.”
Isaiah 14:9 “Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming; it stirs up the dead for you. All the chief ones (leaders) of the earth it has raised up from their thrones. All the kings of the nations shall speak and say, ‘Have you become like us?”
Isaiah 5:14 “Hell has enlarged itself and opened its mouth beyond measure; their glory (leaders)and their multitude and their pomp, and he who is jubilant, shall descend into it.”
Ezekiel 32:21 “The strong among the mighty shall speak to him out of the midst of hell...”
Psalm 110:6 “He shall judge among the nations, He shall fill the places with dead bodies. He shall execute the heads of many nations.”
Psalm 146:3 “Do not put your trust in princes (political leaders)...”
Isaiah 40:23 “He brings the princes to nothing; He makes the judges of the earth useless.”
Revelation 6:15-17 “The kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said the mountains and rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb, for the Day is great and who is able to stand?’”
The judgement upon Christian leaders:
1 Peter 4:17 “The time has come that judgement must begin in the house of God.”
James 3:1 “Let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we will receive a stricter judgment.”
Jeremiah 23:1-4 “Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture, says the Lord...I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all the countries where I have driven them and bring them back to their folds, and they shall be fruitful and increase. I will set up shepherds over them who will feed them; and they shall fear no more...”
Revelation 2:2 “I know your works, your labour and your patience, and you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who call themselves apostles and are not, and have found them to be liars.”
The court of great reward:
The judgment seat of Messiah is the grand court-room in which all believers (no unbelievers) appear before our Lord for eternal rewards. Everyone who appears in this court for judgement is already pure and perfect through the salvation of the cross.
All unbelievers appear at the Great White Throne Judgement, where there will be no believers. (Revelation 20:11-15)
This is a court for the exclusive issuing of eternal reward for works done in response to the call of God in the believer’s life.
This glorious court sees our majestic King of glory, enthroned and awarding spectacular rewards to perfect people! Oh yes, my friend, don’t let anyone tell you, that as a believer you are not perfect, through the work of the cross!
Hebrews 12:23 “To the general assembly of the church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the just Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect.”
2 Corinthians 10:17-18 “Let him who glories, glory in the Lord. It is not he who commends himself who is approved -but whom the Lord commends (judges).”
1 Corinthians 3:11-15 “If anyone builds on this foundation (Yeshua) with gold silver precious stones, wood, hay, straw, his work will become manifest in the Day. It will revealed by fire and the fire will test the quality. If anyone’s work endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss, but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.”
1 Corinthians 15:41-42 “There is one glory of the sun, another of the moon and another of the stars; for one star differs from another in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead...”
Daniel 12:3 “Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever.”
Do you think you will be rewarded for answering and obeying the devil’s call on you, and the call of the world and the media? Think again, buddy – and start crying!
Thieves of your reward:
These days you have to hunt far and wide for anything in the news media that is based on truth. The mass-media today are all totally blindly biased, and driven by a monkey on their back named Satan, with a frog in their throats named Diabolical Devil.
Deuteronomy 27:18 “Cursed is he who makes the blind to wander out of the way of God.”
Isaiah 9:16 “The leaders of this people cause them to err, and those who are led by them are destroyed.”
The mass-media are spiritually charged with the evil plans of their god and they don’t know it, nor can see it, but make no mistake – spirits are using them! They will lead you to miss God’s mark!
Even the compromised, sickly sweet church and its hordes of the deceived, will lead you to miss God’s mark for you!
Ezekiel 22:26 “Her priests have violated My law and profaned My holy things. They have not distinguished between the holy and the unholy, nor have they made known the difference between the unclean and the clean...”
Today we are in a world which neutralises right and wrong! If they can’t bring down your salvation, they will have their best shot at bringing down and neutralising your eternal reward state.
Throw them out of your lives.
The primary job of the mass-media, being the voice of the world, is to get rid of and devalue the pure, unadulterated truth of the Bible and replace it with the counterfeit lie of false, Christianity – that of “another Jesus.”
You must see the world as a ticking time bomb! If you don’t see it, you will befriend a big bomb, that will blow more than your head off.
The world is its own wrecking ball, with all its leaders swinging it like giant fools.
The US Democratic Party has become its own wrecking ball, as has the British Labour Party, and the EU, and the New Zealand government. The issue is that when God swings the wrecking ball, pop goes all the wacko weasels!
John 9:39 “For judgement I have come into this world.”
Isaiah 1:4 “Alas sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a brood of evil doers...They have forsaken and turned away from the Lord.”
Proverbs 29:16 “When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increases, but the righteous will see their fall.”
Did you know that there are some indications that saved, rewarded believers in heaven will witness in some way, the Great White Throne Judgement of all unbelievers? That’s a frightening thought! Imagine witnessing someone you have loved, but who remained unsaved, being cast into hell! – Yikes!
Judgement is the big comeuppance, the just punishment and retribution of those who reject His mercy and grace. It is the final merciless blow with hell to pay – and they will!
The world deemed fit to banish the Judge of all judges and in His place has come the god known as the one who comes to kill, steal, destroy, lie and deceive!
Here is the reward of the unsaved:
Romans 2:5 “In accordance with your hard and impenitent heart, you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgement of God.”
Psalm 9:8 “He shall judge the world in righteousness, He shall administer judgement for the peoples in uprightness.”
Psalm 9:19 “Arise O Lord, do not let man prevail; let the nations be judged in Your light.”
Know this: Don’t ever become blasé or apathetic about judgement. It is all part of righteousness and holiness. It is to be revered, feared, respected and honoured.
It is something we as believers have been through once for salvation, and will go through once for reward, and then never again.
An often heard criticism of Bible prophecy is that it puts fear in people. You can get rid of fear in your life now and live in ostrich land, but great, real fear will come your way soon.
I’ll chose the fear and terror of the Lord now, and be safe later!
Everyone will believe the Bible at judgement day, as they bow the knee to Messiah – too late for the unsaved! Too late for most – too late, too late!
World peace, like peace in your own life, is only possible with Satan, sin and evil removed, and that is only possible through the cross of Calvary and the application of it as you take up your own cross daily.
Colossians 3:23-24 “Whatever you do, do it heartily, as so to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord.”
How absolutely wonderful to go forward to glory with abundant confidence, hope, and anticipation! How wonderful to know that all our sins are forever gone and how wonderful to know that such great reward is laid up for the enduring believer!
I took the background picture of the Augrabies Falls, texturised a leaf and stuck in the flower.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
