►Regular readers of The Prophetic Scroll are hereby informed that this Covid19 virus will not come near you. I and my prayer team are praying this as a specific prayer of protection over you.
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.”
Proverbs 24:21 (Amp) “My son, reverently fear the Lord and king, and do not associate with those given to changing allegiances and revolution.”
Proverbs 28:28 (Amp) “When the wicked arise, men hide themselves; but when they perish, the constantly righteous increase and become many.”
Proverbs 28:2 (Amp) “When a land transgresses, it has many rulers; but when the ruler is a man of discernment, understanding and knowledge, its stability will last long.”
Psalm 9:17 (Amp) “The wicked shall be turned back into premature death, into Sheol (hell), even all the nations that forget God.”
Psalm 120:7 “I am for peace, but when I speak, they are for war.”
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.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
Why and when God judges:
But first: What’s happening now is the attempted overthrow of God, His authority structures and the creation of the new world order system of false gods, idols, icons and release of hosts of demons.
The world is redefining God and His word to their standards and values, but it is the standards and values of Satan, their unseen god.
Here is a profound verse which I am applying to the current riots and upheavals:
Isaiah 59:6-8 (Separated from God) “...Their works are works of iniquity, and violence is in their hands. Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood. Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they have not known, and there is no justice in their ways. They have made themselves crooked paths; whoever takes that way shall not know peace.”
I have spoken a lot lately about where we are on the prophetic clock and what is happening now and why. I’ve used the analogy of the forerunners of the four runners of the apocalypse. We are not in the tribulation period yet, but in the time of birth-pangs and forerunners.
The big judgements upon the world of the tribulation period are seen in the events brought onto the stage by the four riders of the apocalypse.
But now I would like to look into the reasons for the big judgements of the tribulation, which are obviously the same reasons for the troubles being brought on now in the form of forerunners.
Big historic judgements of God:
The big judgements from God in the Old Covenant were for these reasons:
●Molech the evil god of child sacrifice: This god was worshipped by the offering of infants, including those from abortions as a sacrifice in fires under his outstretched bronze hands. This occurred in the Valley of the son of Hinnom, (Gehenna). The place became known as cursed for these murders. Today it is still believed to be cursed. (Jeremiah 32:34-35, 2 Kings 23:10) Gehenna is identified with Armageddon.
●Noah: The world then was destroyed by flood for rampant sin, including homosexuality, complacency in the face of predicted judgement, and mocking of judgement to come.
●Sodom & Gomorra: These cities were destroyed by fire for persistent, aggressive homosexuality and refusal to repent.
●Babylon & Babel: Babylon and the tower of Babel were destroyed by God for rampant sin, humanistic unity, false religion, and trying to reach God and be like Him, – man’s way. “Babylon was never to rise again.” (Jeremiah 51:64, Isaiah 13:20) But end-time Babylon is here again, as revealed in many verses. It is NOT the original city. It is now the end-time world system. End-time Babylon has its religion Catholicism and similar orthodox beliefs. The true church is commanded to “flee from Babylon.” (Jeremiah 51: 6-9, and Revelation 17&18)
●Jericho: Was destroyed for rampant sin, and for obstructing the children of Israel on their journey to the Promised Land.
Here are the reasons collectively: ●Rampant unrepentant sin and wickedness. ● Homosexuality which today includes the redefining of God’s institution of marriage and family. ●Abortion. ●Complacency in the face of coming judgement. ●Mocking God’s ways and coming judgement. ●Humanism which includes the philosophy of “I am,” and there is no other. ●False religion of all sorts. ●Coming against Israel.
Here’s the big question: Do you see these sins in the world today? Do you see the world repenting of these things?
Let’s be clear on one thing. The world will not repent, because that’s what the Bible shows. But many individuals in the world will and are repenting even now.
Do you see how difficult it is for the world to repent? These sins have become so normalised and entrenched in modern society that they have become a human right! And even some deceived churches are supporting these judgment-bringing sins!
The gradual normalisation of sin has been done mainly by the mass-media.
So, the four riders of the apocalypse are ready to ride, for the above reasons. When they do, they will race swiftly onto the stage – suddenly!
Because of unrepentant, continuing and worsening sin, God has blinded the minds of the unbeliever and Satan has blinded their minds to the salvation of God.
Matthew 11:25 “I thank You Father Lord of heaven and earth because you have hidden these things from the wise (in self) and prudent, and have revealed them to babes.”
The sin of obstructing Israel:
►But first: Interestingly the organisation “Black Lives Matter (BLM) contains a foundational document rejecting the right of the Jews to their homeland and other anti-Semitic statements.
●Why did God destroy nations and kingdoms that came against the children of Israel, and those that attacked Jerusalem in the Old Covenant?
●Why did God not destroy the nations that divided Israel and Jerusalem in the days since the cross? (For example Jordan, Turks, Britain).
●Why did God not destroy Germany after the Holocaust?
●Why has God not destroyed the many churches including the Catholic church that formed, promoted and practise replacement theology, which is simply the theology of dividing Israel and Jerusalem?
It is because we are in the church age of grace and the longsuffering of God. (2Peter 3:9, Acts 17:30) This is the era of God overlooking these things. (Read those two verses).
But woe to them all when the age of grace ends and the world returns to the Old Covenant ways of doing things. God’s severe, immediate, demonstrative judgement is the main characteristic of the tribulation.
The main verse used by many against dividing Jerusalem is Joel 3:2. But this occurs in the tribulation period if you read the surrounding context. That is not in the church age, but the next dispensation, the seven year tribulation or closing of the Old Covenant.
If this is the case, which I challenge anyone to dispute, then, the current virus troubles and riots are not because the US divided Israel or Jerusalem, which it did not do anyway.
If you recall, I applied the key of David, which no one can remove, to President Trump for his biblical moves on Jerusalem. (Revelation 3:7, Isaiah 22:22) He still holds that key! The world is trying its damndest to get the key out of his hands!
I have mentioned this many times but it bears repeating. The next big thing on the prophetic agenda is war. It will be war against Israel and in the Middle East, as the war-rider rides out of the starting gates.
►►►Jeremiah 4:19 “O my soul, my soul! I am pained in my very heart. My heart makes a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because you, O my soul, have heard the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war.”
Once the four riders race out of the starting gates, the world will cry for peace, but this is what they will get:
Revelation 6:4 “Another horse, fiery red went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth and that people should kill one another, and there was given to him a great sword.”
Do you see why it’s not a good idea to go to the races?
It is of utmost importance to know what is going on behind the scenes in all these things.
My friends, true deep, glorious peace and rest is only for the true believer, going deep with the things of God!
Edition 490: October 8th 2019
The destruction of freedom:
These are words of life!
I could sub-title this: The destruction of liberty and peace.
Freedom is not freedom if it allows itself to be destroyed, as we are seeing in the world now.
It is the gospel, exclusively which brings true freedom and liberty. And it is the message of the cross, within the gospel that does this. But biblical freedom is not the world’s freedom by any means.
Real freedom is being free from sin, self, the world and the demonic. Worldly freedom is an attempt to be free within the environment of sin with no constraints.
In this edition I will deal with freedom on a national as well as personal level. I will look at a nation under God and the great pushback by Satan, the lawless one, to destroy those advances and bring nations under Satan’s power.
Essentially, when the basic principles of the word of God are applied in a nation, that land will free and will prosper. When they are not, that land will come under all sorts of curses leading to failure.
Bear in mind that Satan is referred to as the “god of this world,” as well as the god of fallen man or the self-life dominated by the sin-nature. Man is not born free. He is born into Adam’s cursed, fallen sin-nature, with sin-laced blood in his veins. He needs the blood sacrifice of Messiah to fix him up.
The Bible calls Satan “The lawless one.” (2 Thessalonians 2:8) His definition of freedom is: “Do what you will.” The greatest deception of man is that he is a god without God. His great deception is that he is okay and he rules his universe.
►What man and his world wants is freedom with no restraint or rules. What Satan wants is freedom to rule, unhindered.
True biblical freedom comes packaged with liberty and peace. The world’s so-called freedom comes with enslavement and bondage.
The heart of man is full of evil and must be killed and born again. Today man thinks he is the centre of the universe, and he controls his destiny, and has the source of good within him, but the Bible reveals that the heart of man is desperately wicked.
Only those who are born-again are truly free, and free indeed. (John 8:36)
The failed church:
The true, solid, born again church will endure, grow brighter, and end up very successfully. A large part of the church will fall into gross error and ultimately fall away, as revealed in many Bible prophecies.
Israel will be one of the major stumbling blocks for the half-baked church. These end times will be another stumbling block. Many issues of morality will be another. Witchcraft, submission to the Jezebel spirit and other such things will be rife in the church. There is growing support amongst many churches for the erroneous philosophy of evolution.
Today there are even monkeys in some pulpits proclaiming that we come from baboons!
The churches of replacement theology, will be the new Hitler, and partner with anti-Semitism, empowered by evil forces, but extended to include the true, Bible believing church as victims.
Many churches are dying. The numbers are escalating amongst the non-Spirit filled churches. ●They die because they do not have the fullness of the Spirit to empower them. ●They die because of lack of prophetic vision and therefore drift into the already dead world. ●They die because they are subservient to the dead masses. ●They die because their spiritual diet is rotten to the core. ●They die because they love the world more than God. ●They die because they are alive to the flesh.
If you listen to someone talk of spiritual things and quickly you can tell how much time they have spent in the word. The knowledge and wisdom of God in you is impossible to counterfeit.
God’s spiritual end-time army is well equipped with knowledge of the enemy, and spiritual weapons of attack and defence. But sneaking, creeping in the backdoor are the Christians who reject the spiritual gifts. These are the ‘members’ of the army that will let it down and let the devil in. They are the church’s conscientious objectors and the traitors - when the pressure is on. (Numbers 32:6)
The shallow lives of many Christians today, are products of shallow shepherds, and preachers of polished personality; shouting shepherds like chameleons, and fed birdie nums nums like parrots.
Tragically, many teachers are leading their flock to the lord of flies, the god of this world. “Accept the Lord” they say, but it’s another Lord, another Jesus with no cross and full of worldliness.
We are to forsake the esteem of the world and its approval. We are not to compare ourselves amongst ourselves or the world. (2 Corinthians 10:12, John 12:43)
The curse of the mass-media:
The mass-media creates an apparent reality that creates a false authority. It is a lie built on illusions of its own grandeur and fallen creation. The media is no substitute for spiritual truth, knowledge, understanding and wisdom. It is a huge danger dishing up disservice from which you need spiritual protection.
Error becomes idolatry then people idolize it by eulogizing it the media. It is then virtually cast in stone, and then the masses feed on it like frenzied flies and vultures.
The problem becomes more severe when the church is involved in the error. That gives an evil, blind authority to the error. But know and understand that the church leader or teacher of error, is more accountable than the people he leads astray.
Zechariah 11:17 “Woe to the worthless shepherd, who leaves the flock! A sword shall be against his arm and against his right eye. His arm shall completely wither and his right eye shall be totally blind.”
The removal of the word of God from society with the help of the media, is the removal of that society’s conscience, true knowledge and wisdom and the replacement thereof with the world’s ways filled with sin.
The removal of God from society has one major objective and that is to legitimise and legalise sin, make it acceptable and to destroy holiness and godly virtues.
As the world pushes the limits of morality, it is in ignorance, blindly pushing God to anger.
If God created humans with a place in their hearts for Him to dwell after the new-birth, how can you find fulfilment and peace with an imposter living in your heart?
A world with no restraint gets worse and worse, not better. Only a deceived fool says that worse is better. A world with no restraint manifests the fruits of Satan - killing, stealing, destroying, lying and deceiving, in a haze of confusion.
Crowd psychology or the group speak of the media gives people affirmation. This is cultural and spiritual collective communism. It creates people subservient to the masters of the media and the master of the media’s masters.
The collective masses become a customised entity, with a stolen authority. When God is removed from society it reverts to its base level with its evil fruits.
The media must mock God, cast down His authority and delegitimize His word. They must destroy the opposition to the devil sitting on their shoulder! What they are in fact doing is destroying the very essence of true freedom, so that chaos and anarchy rule.
Destruction, war and peace:
As we race at great speed towards the close of this age, and the great judgements of God the battle is intensifying and the battle lines are drawn.
►Godly war is coming because a satanic peace treaty is coming! Godly peace is coming because satanic peace will soon be destroyed.
The soon coming peace treaty will produce “sudden destruction” (1 Thessalonians 5:3). Because this peace covenant will violate God’s eternal pre-existing covenant with Israel, great wars will result – suddenly and will occur right through the tribulation period.
Before the wrath of God destroys Satan and his armies, the wrath of Satan, the wrath of man and the wrath of nature will wield their swords of destruction.
At the same time the antichrist and his sidekick the false prophet will be trying their utmost to destroy God’s word, and its veracity.
►At the end of the day, man and his world will have to ban the Bible itself, because it is the true dragon slayer and destroyer of sin, evil and wickedness.
A dark, dark world:
We see even now great attempts by the political liberal left around the world, to create chaos and disorder. To bring down and change the eternal laws of God upon which the foundations of the nations were built.
We are witnessing nations, once under God now falling and becoming nations under Satan. We see this in many nations in Africa. We see it in Venezuela, and other South American nations. We see it in Asia, Australia, New Zealand and many others.
We are seeing a bit more than a battle-royal on the go in the US. It is nothing more than the forces of darkness trying to extinguish the light of God’s plans. It is a spiritual battle – out in the open! Rest assured Americans, God’s will, will be done.
A hardened criminal hates the cops and the law, because they get in his way. He wants freedom to continue his criminal activity. He rejoices when the law and its godly freedom is destroyed, dethroned or neutralised. That’s the same principle on the go in the wider socio-political sense.
Unredeemed man is one with Satan, fallen and full of wickedness and blinded by God as a result. Because he has been blinded, he can’t see. He thinks he is right and fine. He is even blind to the fact that he has been blinded!
Jeremiah 17:9 “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?
John 9:39 “For judgement I have come into this world, that those who do not see may see and that those who see may be made blind.”
John 3:19 “Men loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil”
These three verses above are a total horror and fly in the face of modern thinking.
Regular readers know well this verse dealing with the control of the antichrist:
Isaiah 10:14 “My hand has found like a nest the riches of the people...I have gathered all the earth and there was no one who moved his wing nor opened his mouth with even a peep.” (Acts 17:26)
Globalism is the desire of the devil. He will try to bring it about through massive control mechanisms. He must destroy national sovereignty and the freedoms of a nation under God. Social justice has become nothing but a slave to globalism.
Borders are a threat to world unity and so-called peace. The world wants a shared world conforming to the dictates of the ultimate dictator.
A new humanism is the world’s agenda with a common cause and goal. Global thinking in a global village is the order of the day – Satan’s day!
In pursuit of globalism, its dictators will hate all opposition to their deceived ways. Martyrdom of Christians even today, is rife and growing and will become endemic in the tribulation. But within this category are the Christian traitors, the Israel haters and the Judas sell-outs. Here they are:
Jeremiah 9:5-6 “Everyone will deceive his neighbour, and will not speak the truth. They have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity. Your habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know Me, says the Lord.”
When God is removed from society, there is no accountability for sin, because it is now re-defined, and is variable. What a terrible state to be in! But the big shock coming is that everyone will give an account of everything in their lives. “It is appointed unto man to die once and then judgement.”
The three pillars of a nation under God are family, state and church. All three are under the same attack! Satan’s globalism endeavour is to remove the boundaries. He is trying to remove the boundaries of what family is. He is trying to remove the boundaries of the nations (Acts 17:26) He is trying to remove the boundaries of the church with inter-faith efforts
If you could create a massive world-wide boundary-less unity, who would set the global rules and what would they be. What would be the values?
The freedom cycle:
Freedom and liberty generally operate as a cycle through time. It is well illustrated in this diagram, which I created for your benefit. The cycle begins its fateful plunge whenever a society (or individual) forsakes the principles of the word of God. A nation under God quickly becomes a nation under Satan when God is removed.
This freedom-cycle is about to become a very different picture. A true horror, because of the time period we are in. The cycle will work the same way for those saved in the tribulation period, but for all others and the nations of the world generally, this is how it will work out:
►Freedom, liberty, license, wickedness depravity, destruction, wrath, rage and hell!
What is the end goal?
Satan’s end goal in all these things is to create a new world order of massive control. He would call that world-peace.
The world would have been well indoctrinated and taken over by then. The end result would be all credit going to the antichrist (Satan) which would then produce the worship Satan desires.
That is the end goal. It is worship. But we know how this all works out don’t we?
We must resist all forms of control by illegitimate authority. If not, the devil will get in through holes in your armour. Holes in your armour catch up with you later if you don’t make them whole.
You don’t break God’s law. It breaks you. Removing it only delays the inevitable. When you rationalise your evil, you have opened the door for much worse to come in.
Darkness is destroyed by light, not political or social action. Our job is to shine and do what the Lord leads us to, but to see that we are to come out of and die to the world, and leave it to its own devices. (2 Corinthians 6:17, John 15:19, John 12:25, Revelation 22:11)
The world system and the sin-nature in man are indestructible by man’s methods.
Sin is in your genes or should we say – jeans! In fact it is in your blood. When you look into yourself inwardly and introspectively for peace and answers to problems, unless saved, you will meet the architect of peace, the grand deceiver – Satan.
Satan is enthroned on the throne of the unbeliever’s life, even though he can’t see it and won’t admit it. Satan is enthroned on a throne on top of the world!
He will always help you, just enough to bait you! God’s way is to kill you and blow up your world, then to create a new born-again you and an all new world of untold glory with Satan cast down.
Please don’t forget my verse for the year: “As you forsake the word of God, you will praise the wicked!” (Proverbs 28:4) How incredibly true that has been so far.
The real deal of all centuries was the deal Satan made with Adam and Eve. “You will be as God if you eat of the tree.” In other words, you will be free and in liberty as God is.
The coming “Deal of the Century” is the same as the deal of Adam and Eve with Satan. It will break God’s eternal covenant with Israel, Satan’s deal with Adam and Eve rocked the whole world until now. This coming peace covenant will rock the world right into great wrath and tribulation! Talk about history repeating itself!
The main reason for destruction in Noah’s day and the days of Lot was because there were only a handful of righteous people in the world and in the city. The primary reason was not sin no righteous people. Of course that is one of the major reasons for the increase in sin. But don’t lose sight of the major responsibility of the church to be holy in these days.
Proverbs 2:10-13 (Amp) “Skilful and godly wisdom shall enter into your heart, and knowledge shall be pleasant to you; to deliver you from the way of evil, and the evil man, from men who speak perverse things and are liars, men who forsake the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness.”
The Christian world view is all about restraint and the knowledge of God in the land. (Hosea 4:1-2) If Satan can destroy the righteous he can operate unrestricted. The Spirit-filled church as the restrainer, stands in his way, and guess how that’s going to work out!
True biblical freedom comes out of the mouths of those who know and understand the things of God. This is why Satan must silence their mouths! He will not succeed.
Our goal in this day is godly quality, which spreads to others. Like produces like!
Interestingly, the fall of Adam into the curse, got all of nature cursed too, but at the revealing of the saints in their new resurrected state all of nature is released from the curse into the glorious liberty (and freedom) of the children of God! (Romans 8:25)
John 8:36 “Whom the Son sets free is free indeed.”
I took this picture while sitting at a waterhole in the beautiful Etosha Game Reserve.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
