- 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 473: June 11th 2019
The Rapture and replacement theology.
These are words of life!
Replacement theology is the erroneous teaching that the church has replaced Israel. Wherever you find Israel, or Jerusalem mentioned in the Bible, especially in a prophetic sense, you replace them with the church. It also presumes that all the blessings, promised to the Jews, now come upon the church, while the curses come upon the Jews.
This heretical teaching was first developed by the early Catholic church, to keep the Jews out. An extension to this was the replacing of the Saturday Sabbath with Sunday, and the replacement of the Feasts of the Lord with the pagan feasts of Christmas and Easter – again for the reason of keeping the Jews out of the church. (Look these things up if you don’t believe me.)
Replacement theology is of the same spirit as Nazism. The former gets rid of the Jews theologically and the latter physically. But it’s the same spirit at work. In fact it is of the same spirit as Judas and ultimately of antichrist, which is seen when you put all its workings and conclusions together.
Why replacement theology?
The reason is of course spiritual in origin. The word “antichrist” means to come against and replace with the false Messiah. In the same way, replacement theology must do both. It must come against the truth and replace it with error.
God’s great work of grace is the glorious church. But it’s not His only work. He has, is, and will complete His biblically revealed and promised work with the Jews. Many in the church, due to their pride can’t or won’t see that. They are blinded by their pride and hence deceived.
God’s final work of the ages includes regathering, saving and using Israel to bring salvation to the world in the tribulation and the defeat of Satan and the world's armies. Satan obviously does not like this and tries to stop it, especially as his defeat approaches.
The satanic purpose of replacement theology is to get rid of the God-chosen vehicle of Satan's defeat – Israel. (Jeremiah 51:20)
The Catholic desecration of the Jews:
A major purpose of the Catholic church from its foundation, has been to get rid of the Jews. It has had an obsession with domination of the world at the expense of the Jews. The reason is the same as that of the Nazis and Hitler, whose desire was world domination and to create a one thousand year Nazi-ruled millennium of peace.
The Catholic obsession with the removal of the Jews reached its climax in the inquisitions during which millions of Jews were murdered by the popes.
But the precedent began long before this.
In 170BC Antiochus arose to power with a satanic hatred for the Jews. His full name was Mithridates Antiochus which means: “Given by the deity Mithra”. Mithra is believed to be one of the angels cast out of heaven at the fall of Lucifer. He is closely associated with the satanic god, Zeus and also the popes. He is also believed to be linked to the coming antichrist. (That’s another story, which I’m not getting into now.)
For three years the temple was desecrated by Antiochus who also erected an altar to Zeus (a type of Satan) ordering that pigs be sacrificed on it. Antiochus hated the Jews and introduced other measures to humiliate them and prevent Jewish custom from spreading, including the burning of all copies of the Hebrew law.
Burning Bibles owned by Jews, the laity and other religious books was an active pastime of the Catholic’s in the dark ages.
The practises of Antiochus were a type in some respects of the coming “abomination of desolation” to be set up in the new third Temple in Jerusalem.
It’s interesting that the practice of sacrificing a pig to Zeus instead of a lamb is still seen today in the form of the Easter Ham and the Christmas Ham, instituted by the Catholics. There is much more on the sacrificing of pigs in many Babylonian customs too. That’s the origin of the glazed ham on the table.
So, the next time your piggy pastor instructs you to prepare the Easter or Christmas ham for the family table, you know the origin of the evil tradition. We need obedience to God and His word and not to Catholic deception.
By the way, this has nothing to do with the discussion of eating ham generally, just this specific custom and tradition born in hell.
I have maintained before that replacement theology is about to mutate into a much more vicious, virile, dangerous beast. We’re already seeing the manifestation of it in many churches.
But why now? The answer is simple: Soon and very soon it will be the time of Jacob’s trouble – the tribulation period. We are very close. This will be the time when Israel replaces the church, not the other way around, because the church will be gone.
There is no way theologically, that replacement theology can accommodate a pre-tribulation rapture, or even a mid-trib rapture. The only view that works doctrinally for them is post trib.
As the church disappears in rapture, Israel becomes the central focus of God’s work, as He brings them to salvation through glorious awakening, as well as many tribulation judgements. But if the church replaces Israel, that means that the church will be awakened to be saved in the tribulation! It does not make sense!
But a large part of the church has become pro-Israel and pro-God’s plans for them. The rapture is coming soon, with the big swing to Israel. So, these pro-Israel churches, many who will even put their own lives on the line for Israel, must be seen as a very great threat to the replacement crowd!
If you believe in replacement theology, you must get rid of Bible dispensations. You then have a problem with the verses themselves speaking of, and identifying dispensations. (Ephesians 1:10, Hebrews 1:1, Colossians 1:25) You then have a great problem with numerous end-time verses and cannot make them fit. This is why churches of replacement theology are absolutely useless in the area of eschatology.
Replacement theology is Spirit-less and spirit-full. (No Spirit of God and of the spirit of error.)
Replacement theology, because it is a giant error, will rob you of your alertness, awareness and kill your defences. It will in fact cause you to change sides, from God to the devil, further down the line.
Replacement theology is a powerful blinding force. It blinds you to a huge amount of Bible prophecy.
Replacement theology creates doubt in the uninformed and spiritually ignorant. In the tribulation period Israel will be of most importance and significance. The doubt created only plays into the hands of the enemy – just what he wants!
The way of replacement theology ends with acceptance of the antichrist. The pro-Israel view ends with a pre-tribulation rapture and a marriage feast with our Lord in heaven.
Error + repentance = the road to truth. Error +pride = the road to antichrist.
Replacement theology and its evil twin anti-Semitism:
The two portions of scripture below relate to the tribulation period and the Satan-empower antichrist. If ever there were two clear scriptures outlining end-time anti-Semitism, these are them.
Revelation 12:17 “The dragon was enraged with the woman (Jews) and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Yeshua the Messiah.”
Daniel 8:23-25 “In the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors have reached their fullness, a king shall arise, having fierce features, who understands sinister schemes. His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power, he shall destroy fearfully, and shall prosper and thrive. He shall destroy the mighty, and also the holy people. Through his cunning he shall cause deceit to prosper...he shall destroy many in their prosperity. He shall even rise against the Prince of princes, but shall broken without hand.”
Note the course and the cause of the events:
In the Revelation verse, the cause is God’s protection upon Jews fleeing persecution. This enraged the antichrist and he went off to kill more Jews, and by implication, Gentile tribulation saints, who are have become believers.
In the Daniel verses we see that the time period is when sin in the world has reached a pinnacle. He turns on and makes war with the holy people. Note the contrast: It is the fullness of the world’s sin and the holiness of the trib saints.
Revelation 13:7-8 “It was granted to him (antichrist) to make war with the saints (trib) and to overcome them, and authority was given him over every tribe tongue and nation, and all who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb, slain from the foundation of the world.”
Who replaces whom?
The list below flies in the face of replacement theology – totally:
Israel is: ●Elected ●Rebelled ●Rejected ●Regathered ●Repented ●Accepted.
The rapture replaces the church with Israel and the Catholic church goes into the tribulation period, with other similar orthodox churches. (Revelation 2:22, 17:5)
As the church is removed from the earth at the start of the tribulation, Israel sees and recognises her Messiah and becomes God’s chief agent for His work in that time.
But at the same time, the compromising, and counterfeit church, which most certainly includes those of replacement theology, goes right into the tribulation period. Remember that replacement theology also claims that all the blessing come upon them and the all the curses upon the Jews.
This is what you call a grand oops!
Yes those in the tribulation do get the chance to be saved and become tribulation saints, but many actually become Satan’s workers killing the saints!
While the tribulation is on the go the true church are in fact spectators from heaven. (Revelation 3:10)
Many have tried to replace Israel using their own demon-inspired intellect, just like all the clever idiots today. Israel still stands and thrives – with a few bullet holes!
Isaiah 18:3 “All inhabitants of the world and dwellers on earth: When He lifts up a banner on the mountains, you see it; and when He blows a trumpet, you hear it.”
There are a number of different trumpet types in the Bible and a number of different uses. You can’t lump them all together. In some cases the original words used differ, and in some cases you need to apply correct context and historic precedent in your application.
Here is an excellent example of what I mean:
Numbers 10:2-3 (Amp) “Make two trumpets of silver, of hammered, turned work (from one piece of silver), that you may use them, to call the congregation together and for the breaking of camp. When they both are blown, all the congregation shall assemble before you at the door of the tent of meeting.”
Two priests, who were sons of Aaron, were to blow the silver trumpets.
The name “Aaron” means, “Light bringer.” (H 175) Today the sons of the light bringer are ready to sound the alarm! Can you hear them yet? Can you see the light? Can you understand their message?
The temple menorah was to be hammered from a single, piece of gold. Only Aaron and his sons could light the menorah. (Exodus 25:31-37 Numbers 8:1-2, Revelation 1:12-20, 4:5)
Here we see Aaron and his sons were involved in the construction of both the silver trumpets and the golden menorah, both out a single huge piece of pure silver and of gold. This symbolises unbroken holiness, righteousness and purity. It symbolises extremely great value.
Both silver and gold are precious metals, of great value. They are reflective of God’s glory and it represents righteousness in the Bible. (Proverbs 10:20, 12:6, 25:11)
Bear in mind that the two silver trumpets were initially used to call the assembly together for the journey to the Promised Land. That speaks symbolically of Israel entering her spiritual promised land of salvation beginning at a Feast of Trumpets.
The two silver trumpets are blown on Rosh Hashanah, the Feast of Trumpets. They are the initial gathering call of the great assembly of God’s people.
Then as we go into the various celebrations and messages of this incredible significant and symbolic feast, the shofar trumpets are blown in sequence. I (I won’t go into all the amazing details now, but will keep it all for a later edition as we approach the feast.
The reason for sharing these things up to this point is because I and numerous other Bible teachers, scholars and analysts place the rapture right here at Trumpets.
We have the Feast of Trumpets coming up on September 29th / Ocober 1st
The Feast of Trumpets is the next in line of the seven feasts to find its prophetic fulfilment. It will mark the end of the church age, the beginning of the tribulation period and the rapture.
As always, the prophetic events on the ground all need to dovetail together before we can look at anything related to timing. What we can say now, is that we are close. Many things are in line, but some things are not.
I would safely say – we are close and it’s time to be ready one way or another. If we have to wait, so be it, (mutter mutter)
Psalm 130:5-6 “I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His word do I hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning – I say, more than those who watch for the morning.”
A rapture note of interest:
As we get closer, the details of the rapture and surrounding events become more important. With this in mind, I am going to do a fairly in-depth look at the pre-tribulation rapture, the mid-trib view and the post trib view for a soon-coming edition or two.
I can tell you now that I have no belief at all in the post trib view. I reject it all. The mid-trib view has some very convincing arguments in favour of it, but for me the scale tips to the pre-trib position.
This entire area requires some hefty diligent, study, prayer and knowledge, and a head with some empty spaces that God can fill.
1 Corinthians 15:52 “In a moment, in a twinkling of an eye, at the last trump, for the trumpet shall sound and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”
The peace treaty:
The coming peace “Deal of the century” has been thrown a curved ball by the upheaval in Israeli politics right now. I don’t believe that the Kushner / Trump plan is the Daniel 9:27 deal, but I do believe it may be a path to it.
However there is another very real possibility, which I have mentioned before.
The Kushner / Trump deal may end up being irrelevant.
If there is a big outbreak of war in the Middle East now involving Israel and her neighbours, that is always in itself, a call for peace. That could result in a peace deal being struck of which we know nothing right now, because it hasn’t happened.
So, what I’m saying is the “Deal of the Century” is not cast in stone, as the only one to look out for.
The cost of replacement theology is great. It knocks on to so many other doctrines, creating confusion and in fact nothing but a curse. It is a ‘glue’ from evil spirits, entrapping many.
Those of replacement theology will go into the tribulation period. Some will become persecutors of the tribulation saints. They are enemies of God’s ways and workings today and into the near future.
The rapture will replace the church with Israel as they fill out their prophetic destiny and ultimately become one with all true believers.
These are dangerous days of great deception. The ill-informed are most vulnerable.
The truth will bless you or crush you. Error will crush you or crush you!
Please bear in mind that history repeats itself, when written in the Bible, and modern man learns nothing from God’s history book. Israel wins!
You will be known by your fruits that remain. (John 15:16)
I took this picture of the fish eagle on a river bank nearby.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
