|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.|
►We have now reached 46 million regular visitors.
►Next Edition, Lord willing: "Peace or torment"
- Sovereignty / annexation of Judea and Samaria now on hold. Will proceed later in July according to Israeli government sources. Opposition to it grows.
- Virus growth continues to expand at alarming rate. Lockdown and restrictions return to some areas.
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
This verse, below was given to me by our Lord in December last year to give to you as the crowning verse for 2020. This was just before the corona-virus became a world pandemic:
The heading is, “Babylon humiliated.” End-time Babylon is the modern world system:
Isaiah 47:10-11 “You have trusted in your wickedness. You have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you; You have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one besides me.’ Therefore evil shall come upon you and you shall not know from where it arises, and trouble shall fall upon you. You will not be able to put it off, and desolation shall come upon you suddenly.”
Psalm 5:10 “Pronounce them guilty, O God! Let them fall by their own counsels. Cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions, for they have rebelled against you.”
Psalm 83:3 “They have taken crafty council against Your people, and consulted together against Your sheltered (treasured) ones.”
Psalm 64:2 “Hide me from the secret plots of the wicked, from the rebellion of the workers of iniquity.”
Isaiah 60:2-3 “ Darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people, but the Lord will arise over you (Israel) and His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your light.”
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.
3rd July 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Watchmen what do you see?
Masses are in the salvation firing lines. This will include masses of prodigals and backslidden Christians. Entire churches will awaken to end-time Bible prophecy.
At the same time many, specifically those who are not, and come against being Spirit filled, will be taken over by strong and powerful deceptive spirits and fall away. They will join with the spirit of the antichrist and false spirits of the ecumenical, interfaith, one-world order system.
As the world shakes, more and more will look for stability – and find it in our Lord. The shaking is about to become extremely severe and masses will seek the truth, but because their hearts are not repentant and right the truth will not find them.
Many will go with what they believe is truth, but the truth-teller may be a fraud to begin with.
There are some out there presenting wonderful truth, rightly applied, but they are few and far between. When you encounter them, value and treasure them, and pray for them to continue.
As spiritual darkness descends, as prophesied in numerous passages, the entire world will be engulfed in the darkness of encroaching sin and wickedness. In very thick darkness light can’t penetrate and the light merges with darkness. (Luke 11:35)
Many times I have wandered through various wildlife areas at night with a torch. You need to watch carefully where you are going. You need to be a watchman alright!
Sometimes as you shine the torch, it picks up the shining, glowing eyes of a silent animal deep in the bush. You don't know if its a friend or foe, just from the glowing eyes.
If the torch doesn’t shine truly and brightly, how can you see and watch where you are going?
I know that many ministers and prophecy teachers read The Prophetic Scroll, and judging by what a lot of them have said, there is a growing unity in the message amongst us. That would be like many together, each with a torch, shining together in the darkness.
At the end of the day, the light of God’s truth is to guide us into the bright shining eternal glory of heavenly light, with an abundant entrance.
You don’t want to just scrape into heaven by the skin of your teeth, smelling like hell.
So, the important job of the watchman’s torch is to shed light on the right way and expose the wrong way. People’s lives are affected and changed by these things.
Not too long ago some so-called watchmen, under the curse of Nibiru taught their deceived followers that the planet Nibiru was about to strike the earth and destroy it. This was taught by the Revelation 12 –sign teachers.
Some today teach the most outrageous, dangerous, Satan-rooted heresy like: Modern day Jews can never repent because they are cursed, because a small group of them stoned Steven nearly 2000 years ago!
Disagreement amongst watchmen detracts and harms the message and Bible prophecy. It means some are not hearing from the Spirit of God, who has a unified message of pure truth. Too many watchmen are full of pride, watching through blinded eyes. They need to get out of ministry!
Agreement amongst watchmen adds weight and substance to the message. Agreement highlights and shines on the truth, confirming and establishing it.
Pride is a watchman’s light-killer. It dims the light and confuses it with the darkness. Pride in a Christian minster is terribly dangerous. It deceives him with his self-importance. It blinds him to the light.
2 Corinthians 11:13-14 “Such are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Messiah. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.”
The angel of light, Satan is in the darkness of the night! “Watchmen, watchmen, what of the night? “ (Isaiah 21:11) Watchman, are you looking into the night with your light? Do you see what is of the “angel of light?” Do you watch, see and warn?
Jeremiah 6:17-18 “I set watchmen over you, saying, ‘listen to the sound of the trumpet.’ But they said. ‘We will not listen!’ Therefore hear O nations and learn O congregations, what will happen. Hear O earth! I am bringing disaster on this people, the fruit of their own schemes (thoughts), because they have paid no attention to My word and have rejected My instruction.”
In these above we see the sad reaction of the world to God's warning. They rejected it. That is exactly where we are today. But it’s quite another thing, and just as tragic when the watchman speaks a lot of hogwash and the people think he speaks the truth.
The most valuable torch-battery that a watchman can have is the cross of Calvary. It creates the power to give pure light, and strips out pride and its error.
The wonder of the cross is that it shows you that you are not valuable and precious, but that you are a dying rat with rabies, deserving of death. Then it raises you and gives you great eternal value.
Today we have a flood of ministers, ministries and so-called watchmen who are cross-less. They are of “another Jesus”. They are Spirit-less.
Their goal is your material wealth, so that they can benefit from it too. They teach self-improvement, self-esteem, self importance, all without the cross, which kills self. The speak the rat language.
They are not enemies of Christ. They are enemies of the cross of Christ! (Philippians 3:18) So they actually end up with “another Christ”!
The power of the cross and resurrection now works from inside your heart, where once the rat and blind bat lived.
Only stupid watchmen use weak, half-flat batteries in their torch. In their blindness they set themselves up as God’s editor, removing all the hard sayings and severity from their doctrine, producing spineless, worldly, weak counterfeit Christians.
It’s always the same people that get caught in big errors. They seem to attract all the rubbish. There’s a reason for that. It is because of their hidden pride, and because they have let in a spirit of error and have not cast it out or repented. It comes back seven times worse.(Matthew 12:45)
You need to be very careful and diligent with your faith. Examine it and guard it, and always move forward in total surrender to all truth, and actively avoid the error out there.
We see the two white horse riders contrasted in the Bible. Revelation 6:2 sees the rider on a white horse, given a crown (corona) and with a bow but no arrow, symbolising deception. Then we see God’s white horse rider at the end of the Revelation.
Revelation 19:11-14 “I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse, and He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war...and the armies in heaven clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.”
Notice the accompanying riders! The antichrist rider flies onto the stage with three other riders of the apocalypse - riders of deception, wielding death, destruction, and chaos.
Now notice our Lord on a white horse flying out of heaven with great armies of saints in fine linen, on white horses. The fine linen is the “righteousness of the saints”. (Revelation 19:8) Guess who these are? That’s us.
But note that we all return to make righteous war with our Lord. Since when do you go to war dressed in fine white linen? It is the final victory – the victory of fine righteousness over dirty wickedness! – Glory, I say!
Note well that at the marriage supper it is the church who are in fine while linen. Note well that as soon as dinner is over the white horse rider and the entire church still in white linen ride magnificently out of heaven at the Second Coming.
What amazing proof of a pre-tribulation rapture!!
Edition 484: August 27th 2019
Deadly doctrines developing:
These are words of life!
Biblical doctrine, unlike other dogmas is spiritually charged. It is the safe, steady, secure foundation of our faith. Its source is our Lord Himself, His Spirit, His word and His teachers. But it can easily be hijacked by those led by the spirit of error, demons and false teachers.
We are exposed to many false doctrines on our growth-journey, but they normally hit the garbage can soon, as the Spirit of truth leads us forward. However doctrine is fast becoming the main playground of end-time enemies of our Lord. It is predicted to get steadily worse.
We must be aware of it, how it operates, why it is intensifying now, through whom it comes and how to deal with it.
I have touched on some of these things before, but the entire spiritual environment is in a state of flux right now. It’s time to put on your armour and use your spiritual gifts.
Don’t become a false-doctrine hunter:
Never make chasing false doctrine a priority. Chase the truth as a priority and deal with false doctrine when necessary, and then move on.
Many people are insecure in their faith, full of the fear of rejection and other psychological problems. The spiritual environment is an easy place to look for and find acceptance. False doctrine attracts many people like flies!
Often proponents of false doctrines are looking for self-importance and affirmation. When they find it they “imprison” it becoming ultra-protective over their “catch” so as not to be left out in the cold again. Control gives them a false sense of security.
You must also be aware that in dealing with false doctrine you are often open to the transfer of spirits, so you have to have your armour on!
In most cases false doctrine rises to a point where you can identify it clearly, and cut its head off.
Be well aware of the real purpose and great danger in false doctrine or biblical error:
- It leads to erroneous living.
- The aim of false doctrine is to lead you to a false spirit and a false Messiah.
How does false doctrine arise?
In almost every case, pride is the root of false doctrine. The world is now exalting itself against God in almost every imaginable way. This is just like Lucifer exalting himself above God with his string of “I will” statements. (Isaiah 14:12-14) And the fall of Adam and Eve as they bought into the great lie – “You will be as God.” (Genesis 3:5)
Pride is the fuel of much evil. It is the fuel of ultimate discontent! It is the fuel and root of rotten fruit in the believer’s life.
Be careful out there! False doctrine is grows and spreads. It knocks on to other doctrines like wildfire. It is far more difficult to get out of than to get into!
It is a deadly plague in the church with consequences, especially for young believers.
False doctrine can discourage believers from moving on. Seeking Christians tend to get inoculated against the truth, when constantly bombarded with the next, new big, pile of garbage camouflaged as good food.
The problem with getting into false doctrine is it makes you a betrayer. Only deep repentance can fix that, otherwise you become totally untrustworthy in our Lord’s kingdom.
By their fruit and their doctrine you will know them!
Deadly, developing doctrines:
Because of the time period we are in, many false doctrines will arise related to the main, specific issues of these end-times. Some are old and maturing false doctrines, with a new evil face, some are developing now and some will fully manifest in the tribulation period.
The big issues of these end-times are:
Attempts at a one-world government. (Revelation 17:13) ●Attempts to break down borders between nations. (Isaiah 10:13, Acts 17:26) ●Attempts at a one-world currency. (Isaiah 10:14) ●Attempts at a one-world religious order. (Revelation 18:3) ●Attempts to “sanctify” the world. (Luke 16:15, Proverbs 21:2) ●Attempts to control the masses. (Isaiah 10:14, Revelation 13:4) ●Attempts to get rid of godly virtues, holiness and truth. (Isaiah 5:20, Ezekiel 22:26 Hosea 4:1-2) ●Attempts to bring in the antichrist. (1 John 2:18, Revelation 6:2-4) ●Attempts to get rid of Israel. (Psalm 83:4)
(Please hover your mouse over the verses above and read them. There are many more on each subject.) Now, you tell me how many new false doctrines are emerging in direct relation to all these points above?
Beware of new doctrines. Beware of doctrines with fancy new interpretations. Beware of doctrines glorifying and exalting man. Beware of doctrines with “private interpretation.” (2 Peter 1:20)
A powerful key in identifying false doctrine is to look to the final presupposition of the doctrine. What is its ultimate goal? Many times that goal is hidden.
All false doctrine is alive with an anti-God agenda.
The biggest false doctrine of all:
This, the biggest false doctrine of the lot is nothing new. It has been around in the church since its inception. But it now has a new evil face!
It is the belief that you do not need to be born-again to be saved. It is the belief that a loving God will not send anyone to hell. It is the belief that your inherent, basic good will save you.
This is the doctrine taught and believed in by thousand of churches and billions of people!
You may be surprised at what follows – read on!
The events that we collectively call the cross, includes the death burial and resurrection of our Lord. It was during these events that our Lord descended and defeated Satan and his host, triumphing over them and making a show of them. (Colossians 2:15)
Please remember that as a born-again believer, you were crucified with Him. You were and are in Him. Your salvation includes victory over the very source of mans problems – the enemy.
This is why the self-ruled world can never be right for heaven. They have in their hearts the undefeated enemy – Satan and a host of demons. Man can’t save himself because he did not die for himself. Man can’t save himself because he never defeated the devil in his own heart.
Self has a sin-splurting “engine” within its heart, which is in Satan’s service, by birth into Adam’s family.
It was our Lord, exclusively who defeated the enemy and we are in our Lord!
Those not born-again have an undefeated foe in their heart, called “self” or the “sin-nature” and they can never get rid of it. They can be good but they will go to hell.
Those not born-again have an undefeatable foe in their hearts!
This undefeatable foe changes like a chameleon, but bear in mind that even its good is unredeemed! With an undefeated enemy in your heart, even your good times are bad in God’s view.
This undefeatable foe can only be defeated by the full work of the cross!
The new deadly doctrine is that self is a god. Self does not need to die on a cross. Cross-death is meaningless and powerless they say. It is you, you, you that counts. You can do it, yes you can!
They believe that the resurrection is in fact you arising to a new socio-political order and direction in life.
All the new “self” orientated doctrines attempt to justify the sin-nature with a flavouring of self-esteem and self importance.
A very good measuring stick of your growth in the Lord is seen in how much of the world you have and are overcoming? (John 16:33, 1John 5:4)
You will often find that the real counterfeit Christian (even in leadership) is one who has a secret love for the world. It always goes hand in hand with pride and a secret love for the self-life. It eventually manifests, normally bringing many people down too.
So, billions of people think they’re good enough for heaven. They have been taught by false teachers!
You can’t go to heaven or into the Millennium without being saved. To be saved you need judgment. The cross is the believer’s judgment and the tribulation period is the judgement that turns those who will enter the Millennium, to our Lord.
Godly holiness and victory over the devil is required for salvation. In Messiah, it’s all a done deal! But man without Messiah can’t do it, so he invents new doctrines to accommodate him and his devil.
Here we see the deep meaning and extent of salvation.
Through Adam, Satan polluted the self-life, but also the whole world-system.
The world can never be truly holy for the same reasons as above. It cannot defeat the devil in its heart. Man cannot get rid of his own devil in his heart. The world can’t get rid of the devil in its heart! If they could, that would be like lifting themselves up by their own shoelaces. It doesn’t work.
If you are on the right road, the world will hate you, because you have the world’s enemy in your heart. (John 15:18-22)
What a wonder our salvation in Messiah is!
Damnable dangerous doctrines:
One of the modern damnable doctrines is that doctrine itself is not important. Of course, doctrine on its own is dead letter, but Spirit-filled doctrine is alive and well and goes hand in hand with love, mercy and joy and all the fruits of the Spirit.
What do you think – God gave us glorious doctrine for us to say we don’t need doctrine!
Those who reject or downplay the importance of Spirit enlightened doctrine, by default replace it with the doctrines of the world and self.
Because you reject God and His word, changes nothing except you. It turns you into a slowly morphing beast.
Another powerful key in identifying false doctrine is: What is its effect on the plan of God for Israel?
All doctrines that are not consistent with God’s place and call for Israel are false. There are many new one just emerging now.
Sometimes you would be surprised at just how stupid and ignorant some people are!
I recently saw a woman present what must be the world’s top, stupid false doctrine. She was predicting the hour of the coming of the Lord last month (which didn’t happen). She said: “No man knows the day or hour. So that means that a woman will know”! (Unfortunately, I can’t write what I think!)
The terrible thing about that is that she has followers!
As we look at the establishment of the early church, we see the monstrous attacks against it and what the early disciples did about it. We need to bear this in mind now.
Counteracting false doctrine:
Acts 6:10 “They were not able to resist the wisdom and the Spirit by which he (Stephen) spoke.”
Do you realise that your Spirit-filled words and wisdom of God, shuts people up. Obviously not all people, but it does dramatically affect some people. Notice from the verse above that resistance to our Lord crumbled by the confrontation!
Have a look at this shocking picture:
Simon the sorcerer apparently got saved and the people said of him: “This is the great man and power of God and they heeded him.”
Acts 13:8-12 “Elymas the sorcerer withstood them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the faith. Then Saul (Paul) filled with the Holy Spirit, looked intently at him and said, “O full of deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all unrighteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord? Now, indeed the hand of the Lord is upon you and you shall be blind, not seeing the sun for a time.” And immediately a dark mist fell on him, and he went around seeking someone to lead him by the hand. Then the proconsul believed...”
Note the very strong words and attack by Paul on those trying to mess up the building of the early church. We are now in much the same situation again.
Acts 20:27-30 “I have not shunned declaring to you the whole counsel of God...Also, from among yourselves men will rise up speaking perverse (lit=misleading) things to draw away the disciples after themselves.”
Mark 4:24 (Amp) “He said to them, ‘be careful what you are hearing. The measure of thought and study you give to the truth you hear, will be the measure of virtue and knowledge that comes back to you.”
Romans 16:17 “Now I urge you brethren, note those who cause divisions and offences, contrary to the doctrine which you learned and avoid them.”
These verses above are very insightful. They are words of warfare.
Be equipped for today’s onslaught:
Much of the church is in fact the true church’s great enemy, in that they deny the gifts of the Spirit, the supernatural weapons of warfare and the full armour of God as provided in the scriptures for believers. Walk away from them.
What we need to complete the church and create fully balanced believers in this particular time is: Gifts, armour, weapons, and doctrine. Here they all are in a nutshell:
►Gifts of the Spirit: Prophecy, serving, teaching, exhortation, leadership, mercy. The word of wisdom, word of knowledge and special faith. Healings, miracles, discernment of spirits, tongues, interpretation of tongues. (Romans 12:6-8 1 Corinthians 12: 8-10 1 Peter 4:11)
►Armour to stand in battle: Belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, shoes of the gospel, shield of faith, helmet of salvation. (Ephesians 6:11)
►Weapons: Sword of the Spirit. (2 Corinthians 10:4-6)
►Doctrine: Hebrews 6:1-2 reveals the full seven doctrines of Messiah: ●Going forward to perfection, ●repentance from dead works, ●faith towards God. ●The doctrine of baptisms (plural), ●of laying on of hands, ●of resurrection of the dead and ●of eternal judgement.”
Finding a church:
Look at the points above from “Gifts” down to “Doctrine.” In those short few words you will find everything required of a church. A church does not have to be called a “church” as such. It does not need to be an organisation contained in a building. It can be a “congregation,” or even a smaller group of believers.
It’s often very insightful to look for what they won’t preach. If it is out of line with what I have mentioned above, all sorts of problems will be evident in that ministry.
All error knocks on to other doctrines down the line and leads to an error in lifestyle as well as a loss of eternal reward for those involved.
Going down with the ship:
Today churches are failing, falling away and sinking at an alarming rate. Of course there are many doing very well too.
It might be an admirable act for a ship’s captain to go down with the boat, but don’t take an analogy too far! If the ship is sinking – get off fast!
When people are being shaken to the core they look for stability. Multitudes are and will be looking for stability and salvation. (Joel 3:14)
The Bible warns of “another gospel” and “another Christ”. And although the church will not encounter the antichrist, they will and are encountering the spirit of antichrist in many instances.
The Bible has some deadly warnings for those who teach and spread false doctrine, intentionally or not! False doctrine has the power to shipwreck the faith of new believer, starting out on their journey!
Jeremiah 14:14 “The Lord said to me, ‘The prophets prophesy lies in my name. I have not sent them...”
Deuteronomy 27:18 “Cursed is he who makes the blind to wander out of the way of God.”
So the real big specific end time false doctrines developing now relate to the false Messiah, the false gospel, the false cross and the place of Israel and the Jews.
Check your food and clean the house out!
False doctrine blinds you to the truth and you need the truth like you need your necessary food. (Job 23:12, Jeremiah 15:16.)
Our spiritual food is the sustenance of our spirit and soul.
Tradition and culture are often like far reaching tentacles of a nasty beast that won’t let you go. Throw out traditions that do not exalt God.
What you repeatedly consume and give yourself to, will influence your entire spiritual life. It will also be the licence for error and false doctrine to get under your skin.
I love this verse below. It speaks volumes, which we can extend to our spiritual food.
Proverbs 24:4 “By knowledge rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.”
We are not in a static environment. We are in spiritual warfare. Be careful who you receive from! There are some out there trying to feed you birdie num nums!
Doctrine that is really effective is that which has become a reality in your life.
A lot more than war drums are beating right now! The Middle East is on the verge of going bang! Much of the church is under attack too. The church is very close to its completion and rapture. False doctrine is an ongoing attack. It’s like the devil having his last throw at Christians.
As Israel nears her appointed time, much false doctrine surrounds her. Only true Spirit led doctrine will guide you safely through these critical times.
Stand strong, don’t waver, seek the truth and love the truth, be holy, and glorious days are just ahead!
I took the background picture in the beautiful Moremi Reserve in Botswana. I inserted one of my pictures of a black eagle.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
