|This ministry has a distinct kingdom vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for Israel and the church. My position is pre-trib! I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share with you the great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God, to bless Israel and her people and the kingdom of God.|

●With more and more Covid vaccines being developed, we could be close to the objective of the World Health Organisation of getting the whole vaccinated! This brings up all the issues of massive control and the coming of the mark system. The control aspect will only come into force in the tribulation period, but we are seeing what could turn out to be the forerunner of it all.
●The next of the major forerunners still “run” is war. It is coming soon.
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose of this report is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah.

Most people, since the invention of the pop-up toaster want their Christianity the same way, which is instant, pop-up results without going through the discipleship and maturing process, and without having the carpet pulled out from under them, defeating their self-life, ego and dethroning their pride.
The ministry office of the evangelist throws the seed out and it brings the people in to the kingdom. But you can’t live there. You need to move on to the ministry of the teacher / pastor, and become a disciple, which is much more than a convert.
This is where you have to sit down, shut up and be taught the deeper things of God. You need to move from milk to meat. This is where you pay the price, and it costs you everything you are.
The problem is that either the modern teacher is too shallow and spineless, or the recipient is, and he just doesn’t want to pay any price at all.
Matthew 28:19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations...teaching them all things I have commanded.”
Luke 9:23 “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me.”
Luke 14:33 “Whoever of you does not forsake all that he has, cannot be My disciple.”
The original word for “Disciple” is Strong’s G3101, ‘Mathetes’. Meanings: Subjected pupil learner.
We could rightly say that the word means to be subjected under the authority of another, for instruction, correction, and training in righteousness.
The Lord makes converts and then disciples of those converts. Being a subjected pupil learner takes time and it takes sacrifice. Note the conditions for discipleship in the verses above. They are foreign to today’s pop-up superficial, clown-like Christian.
The image below is a compilation I put together of various artist impressions of the disciples. (I will share the other six soon) Bear in mind that these men gave their lives to serve our Lord and finally were all martyred in horrific manners, except for John. I have to say that the renaissance artists captured perfectly the drama and emotion of it all. (Brings tears to my eyes.)
The Prophetic Scroll has always endeavoured to bring you a mix of exciting prophetic material, relevant to today, as well as with a lot of “hard sayings” thrown in, for your edification and growth. “Consider both the goodness and severity of God”, says the Bible.
But, you see, too many want their ears tickled and are only interested in flashy, shouty, stage-stomping entertainment with a few pretty verses thrown in. And of course bright lights and sound effects too - to manipulate the masses.
Main stream Christianity is for those going with the flow. Present worldly Christianity is their measure. True Bible-based Christianity is for those going against the flow, with their ‘sail’ tacking into the wind!
A yacht can go fast with the flow of the wind with its spinnaker up. But it can also move forward into the wind with the sail set correctly. Evangelism is fast, discipleship is slow.
The winds of the world are blowing towards hell, and many lukewarm, compromised, half-baked, partly counterfeit churches too.
Those with the wind in their face are few in number. It’s always been that way. But remember the ultimate, great assessment by our Lord is coming up. No one will escape it.
Is the wind at the back of your head as you go with the flow, or in your face? Oooo – it’s so nice and cool with the wind in your face as you go forward with our Lord at the helm.
I once heard an ill-equipped minister, Rev, Harry Halfbaked, who produced a great many Christian failures (that he thought were a success) teach graduating ministers how to evangelise. He used all the methods of self promotion, self exaltation, self-esteem and worldly ways of promotion, all designed to manipulate and entertain the masses.
The ministry of the cross, brokenness and repentance were totally foreign, as they are in so many churches today.
Those who have cut their spiritual teeth on the old-school teachers and the hard sayings of hell-fire and brimstone preachers of old, or no-compromise teachers are the ones who grow into stable Christians. The big thing is to have the carpet pulled out from under you early in your walk.
If not you will always be a squirmy half dead Christian living in a cloud-cuckoo – never never land, in the realm of the half-baked wishy-washies.
Don’t be afraid to be hard on yourself, particularly in these days. Don’t be afraid of the cross, it is the only way to glory. Surrender and submit to the leading of the Spirit and follow His prompting.
There is a fatal satanic attraction in the error of superficiality. When it manifests it’s like glue, and the majority get stuck in the rut. Don’t mess with it!
No one will ever approach God on their own terms! Even though there is little time left, God will not compromise on the character of His disciples.
Edition 479: July 23rd 2019
Great end-time conflicts:
These are words of life!
Fortify the wall, get your spiritual weapons lined up and cleaned up ready to be brought into service.
You need to have defensive and offensive weapons on all sides, except your back! It is the Lord Himself that will be “your rear guard.” (Isaiah 52:12)
The greatest error of our time is not to see. It is to be blinded by the light! It is the error of seeing things from the wicked world’s point of view. In the sanctuary of darkness, your conscience will be seared, and you will be a vulture’s prey.
It’s okay to have spiritual hiccups for a short season and lose focus, but be careful out there, get rid of those hiccups quickly. They’re dangerous in these days.
Those who draw from polluted waters will themselves become polluted and then pollute others, and end up with more than a frog in the throat, or spiritual hiccups!
Many are inwardly drawn to error and have a natural propensity to be at home with it is. It’s always the same ones! You can be very sure that they are drawing form a polluted source!
Many of you out there would do well to throw out the polluted waters of your spiritual source.
A broken and clean heart before our Lord and the full acceptance of the work of the Spirit of God is the way to see clearly and with purity.
I recall way back in the 70s being fascinated with a piece of paper that had a silver emulsion on one side. When it was exposed to a controlled light and placed in developer, suddenly an image began to appear. You could manipulate the image intensity in various ways, but you were stuck with it once it had gone into a bath of fixer and then washed.
Back in those days that was the essence of how photography worked. Today we do most of these things digitally.
It is the Light of God that enlightens the image. But He shuts off its making as well.
The point for us all is that once the image of our lives has been reflected onto God’s eternal “paper” and been fixed, it’s a signed, sealed and delivered situation.
This, my friends is like the light of your glory. It will appear and it will last forever. It will not fade! Once your glory has been revealed by God’s light – that’s it, you can’t do it again.
Silver-coated photographic paper works only once!
Colossians 3:4 “When Messiah who is our life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.”
Isaiah 60:20 “Your sun shall no longer go down, nor shall your moon withdraw itself, for the Lord will be your everlasting light and the days of your mourning shall be ended.”
1 Thessalonians 5:5 “You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We are not in the night or darkness, therefore let us not sleep as the others do, but let us keep watch and be sober.”
Don’t waste your time on the rubbish the world has to offer. We don’t know how long we have? Of course there are some whose focus must legitimately be in success in the world, but it is always with the kingdom of God as a priority in their lives.
Personally, I have just had a terrible health “encounter” that I did not think I would come out of. Only a week or two later, after some cracking prayer from friends and my prayer partners, I’m almost back to normal again.
I would like to thank those who selflessly stood in the gap for me.
In fact I can now see the other side of the story. I have endeavoured to turn this around on the devil’s head and come out stronger for our Lord.
So, to me it is now already like a new milestone. I dedicate myself afresh to serving you.
Conflicts are ramping up!
The Straits of Hormuz are becoming the battle-waters of coming great conflict.
It’s not so much about oil-tankers carrying black gold from the deep to the west. It’s not so much about Iran and the US or Islam against Israel. It is about Satan and God!
Satan knows that one little spot – a choke-hold, a strangle-hold sees about 30% of the world’s oil need flow through Hormuz. That can disrupt the world economy in a flash if interfered with.
I’ve said for many years and do so again, this will be the nasty trigger to Gog and Magog and the other wars of prophecy in the region.
The question is not what you or I think on these issues, but whose side are you on in spiritual terms. (Revelation 12:12-13)
Where God goes and is acknowledged, and recognised, upliftment comes along. New vision and understanding comes along. It always works in the larger picture too. In other words, upliftment of society as a whole takes place – all for the betterment of mankind.
The source can even be one small ministry, which then spreads outwards. It is evil spreads in a lack of godliness in the nation.
Think of this: The USA has always been a “nation under God” to some degree. The US has always stood with and for Israel. You could see it in the inventiveness and success through their times.
Pretty soon the Space race began.
“Reach for the stars – reach for the final frontier” they said, and off they went in funny space suits to the final frontiers, the conquest of paradise, even though it amounted to not much more than a paradise ball of cheese in the sky!
►But the godless reject the ways of God and are drawn down! Relating to Israel we have the final frontier now being turned by the world-system to the “final solution again”!
As God’s glorious plan of salvation for the world flies through history, we see the wonderful plan encapsulated in:
Israel is: ●Elected ●Rebelled ●Rejected ●Regathered ●Repented ●Accepted.
On May 14th 1948, the Lion nation, soon to release the Lion of the tribe of Judah, became a nation, which was part of this process above. Israel reached for her lost Star in blind obedience to God’s prompting. The final frontier beside one arrived - their national Promised Land. (Their salvation in Messiah being the last frontier.)
But what happened the very next day? On May 15th 1948, the Palestinians declared it “Nakba” day. Meaning: “The day of catastrophe.”
If you seriously look at these two issues you can see those who have chosen heaven and those who have chosen hell!
It is: “Bless Israel and be blessed” – God. Or “Let’s wipe Israel off the map.” – Iran.
Who do you think will come out on top here? A lot more half the world have become thicker than 26 planks. – And many churches too.
Today, more and more, people have become so junk-filled that they can’t distinguish between what is right, holy and what is of the devil anymore.
Many times when you are an advocate and practitioner of God’s holiness, and His ways, people look at you funny! But don’t be concerned about that. God will look at them through eyes of fire and fury – soon – not very funny!
Rend you hearts! Be clean...you are in conflict even now.
Joel 2:13 “So, rend your hearts and not your garments; return to the Lord your God...”
Job 17:9 “The righteous will hold to his way, and he who has clean hands will be stronger and stronger.”
Psalm 24:4-5 “He who has clean hands and a pure heart and has not lifted his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully, will receive blessing from the Lord.”
2 Samuel 22:21 “The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness and according to the cleanness of my hands.”
Don’t ever get the idea from anyone that all you do even in sincerity is of God and will be rewarded. Those who are carnally minded and have built their lives on the errors of the day will have it all stripped away – forever.
Many people are storing up a pile of rotten, dead works in their lives. It actually goes frighteningly further “Being carnally minded makes you an enemy of God!” (Romans 8:6-8)
For the active believer caught up in glorious truth – great glory awaits. Even nature itself is stirring ahead of the revealing of the saints!
When you are on the right path, you will have an inner witness and peace will be your end.
This is a mix of a cheetah picture, a lion and a baobab tree. I took the the pictures in Botswana some years ago.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
