►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.
5th June 2020
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 491: October 15th 2019
The mystery tour:
These are words of life!
“Roll up roll up, the magical mystery tour is waiting to take you away, waiting to take you away.” (The Beatles 1967)
Roll up roll up, the biblical mystery tour is waiting to take you away, take you away. (God)
The former mystery tour will take you away to hell. The latter will take you away in rapture!
This is an odd edition. It’s about a coming mystery, a severe secret that when it manifests, will rock the world. It’s odd because I have no idea what it is or will be, and yet I feel led to write about its coming now, ahead of time. You could say: “This guy does not know what he’s talking about!”
I have had a strong sense in my spirit that something big is coming and that there will be a spectacular message of warning within it. So, I now have my spiritual eyes and ears open, as I await the revealing of the mystery. And let me tell you, that it may not be only me who receives it.
This then is an appropriate time to expand on the incredible subject of Bible mysteries, signs and secrets. It is a treasure trove of profound importance, full of hidden messages and life-changing truth.
But it is also a haunt of devils and demons, great error, and nightmarish spiritual quicksand!
Many have gone out on the mystery tour, only to be shipwrecked by hidden rocks. Many on the trail of magical mysteries have gone into forbidden territory, never to come out.
Some like Rabbi Jonathan Cahn have delved deep into numerous Bible mysteries and come out with many books and brilliant Spirit-led teachings on the subject, opening the eyes of all who would take the trouble to look beyond the surface.
The parables of the Bible are mysteries of sorts. They reveal a deeper underlying truth.
There is however, an important issue relating to Bible mysteries. Why do they exist?
Why does God hide His face from man? Why does He conceal powerful truths? Why does he speak in mysterious parables? Why not just lay it all out in the open, clear and simple?
The reason is because the deeper things of God are always exclusive. They are only for those who diligently search for them. They are only for the Spirit-led few who come in faith and pay the price.
Amos 3:7 “Surely the Lord does nothing unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.”
Job 15:8 “Have you heard the secret counsel of God? Do you limit your understanding to yourself?
Beware of getting sidetracked by signs, wonders and mysteries, but don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater. “The secret things belong to the Lord, but the revealed things to you.” (Deuteronomy 29:29). Do lean on and trust the Spirit of God to show you and bring to life what He desires.
1 Corinthians 2:7 “We speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom of God, ordained before the ages for our glory.”
The seven mysteries:
I recently shared with you the importance of the hidden messages contained in the seven feasts of the Lord. There are many parallels with the seven mysteries. There are numerous other groupings of seven in the Bible: The seven-fold Spirit of God, the seven churches, the seven gifts of the Spirit, the seven eyes – and more.
The Bible has a lot to say about mysteries. There are a number of original words used for “mystery.” The one I’m interested in now is Strong’s G3466 - “Mysterion.” It means a hidden secret revealed only to insiders in the know. Those on the outside cannot see or understand the mystery. It does not mean it’s a mystery to everyone. It’s like having a password to come into a secret place. It’s only for those with the password.
Colossians 1:26 “The mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations has now been revealed to the saints.”
Here are the seven biblical mysteries:
●The Kingdom of God (Matthew 13:11). ●Tongues (1 Corinthians 14:2). ●The rapture (1 Corinthians 15:51). ●The gospel (Ephesians 6:19). ●Sin (2 Thessalonians 2:7). ●Godliness (1 Timothy 3:16). ●Israel’s blindness (Romans 11:25.)
Note that these “mysteries” above are not a mystery to true believers. They are a total mystery to unbelievers. This is why the Bible says you need to be born again to even see the kingdom of God! (John 3:3)
Many times, as most Christians know, it is most frustrating trying to get unbelievers to see spiritual things. They can’t see or understand the things of the Spirit outside of the new birth.
If you are not saved, you can’t see the kingdom of God, but you will see buildings, pews and men in pretty revolting frocks, behind elevated pulpits and choirs singing to ancient organs. You will think the church is a place like that, just like the one down on the corner.
Note in the list of mysteries that they all relate to the true born again church, except the last one, “Israel’s blindness”. This one is very important, which I’ll discuss in more detail a bit further on.
Let’s go on the mystery tour:
The kingdom of God: is a mystery. You can’t even see it or participate in it unless born-again. It is a kingdom ruled by a King in which all true believers will co-rule and reign with our Messiah. It is above and removed from the kingdoms of this world. The kingdom of God includes the kingdom of heaven, the church on earth, saved Israel, the Millennium and will in future include all domains in the universe, cleansed and re-created.
Tongues: This is another big mystery to outsiders and even for many Christians who reject the baptism in the Spirit, with the evidence of tongues. The gift of tongues was the immediate identifying mark of the birth of the church age and the end of the Old Covenant. Tongues are inextricably linked with the gifts of the Spirit, spiritual warfare, and success over the world. Speaking and praying in tongues is a wonderful, powerful, mysterious key to success. The use of tongues will come to an end at the end of the church age and not before.
The rapture: The rapture of the church is a mystery that relates to the true church exclusively. It is the instant catching away of believers transporting them in a flash to heaven in their new resurrection bodies. The rapture ends the church age or dispensation, and gives way to the seventieth week of years of Daniel 9:27 also called the tribulation period, and the time of Jacob’s trouble. The rapture is called a mystery because it bookends the mystery of the church age.
Why the rapture matters: It triggers the final restoration of the Jews. The two are inextricably linked. Teachers and preachers that don’t touch the rapture are by default of replacement theology, even if in their ignorance.
The gospel: The gospel is called a mystery because it is of the Spirit of God – its author and revealer. It is the revelation of God’s words for us the church, which is also a mystery. The gospel is “dead letter” to those outside the kingdom of God, but to those on the inside and who are Spirit filled, it is alive and life giving. (2 Corinthians 3:6)
Sin: There would be no such thing as sin if there were no law of God or gospel. Unbelievers do not have a sin consciousness stemming from the knowledge of God. To them sin is relative, mostly a pleasure, and with no eternal consequences. Outside of the Spirit of God, sin is a mystery. Only true believers can see the mystery and do something about it.
Godliness: True godliness is a virtue which is indentified by the Spirit of God. In many respects it is the antithesis of sin. Godliness is a powerful driving characteristic of the Spirit of God. It is all a mystery to outsiders. That is why they think we are mad! They think godliness is doing a few good deeds so that some angry God somewhere will smile on them. Little do they know that even their good is bad, outside of the kingdom!
What is the common thread through these mysteries? They are all under attack by the devil.
Now, as we near the end of our mystery tour, the real drama ignites! (I want to spend a bit more time on this mystery of Israel’s blindness):
This mystery is a limited partial blindness with a “sell-by” time-stamp on it. Soon, the Jews will see their crucified and risen Messiah. They will come through the cross of Calvary to glory.
Romans 11:25 “I do not desire brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that hardening in part has happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.”
There are so many glorious prophecies in the Old Covenant relating to the identity of the coming Messiah; it really is a mystery that the Jews are blind to Him. There are Old Covenant prophecies of His birth place, Bethlehem, His virgin birth, His crucifixion and manner of death, His burial and resurrection, and much more. And they remain blind!
Shockingly many deceived Bible teachers and church leaders, teach that God used the Jews to bring in Messiah and now that the Jews have rejected Him, and been blinded, that is where the story ends for them. They teach that the Jews are not the called or the chosen people anymore.
Isaiah 11:11-12 “It shall come to pass in that day that the Lord shall set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people who are left...He shall set up a banner for the nations, and will assemble the outcasts of Israel...from the four corners of the earth.”
Romans 11:29 “The gifts and calling of God are irrevocable.” This is not talking about a calling. It is a reference to the calling of God on Israel.” (Check the context)
There is coming a time, which has already started, when this mystery-blindness will disappear, like a veil blowing in the Spirit’s wind. It will happen when the full number of Gentiles has come in. (Romans 11:25)
There is another beautiful application of this verse (Romans 11:25). The fullness of the Gentiles coming in, is a reference to the rapture and the church coming into heaven.
So, Israel’s mystery blindness is about to disappear!
Beware church, when Israel gets her sight back! That will the exact time many so-called Christians will be blinded. (Romans 11:20-23)
Let me ask you this in all honesty:
If God is finished with Israel because of their hard hearts, which caused their blindness, why is He bringing them back in their blindness? The following two verses (and there are many more) clearly show God bringing the Jews back in their blindness and then opening their eyes!
Isaiah 42:16 “I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known, I will make darkness light before them and crooked places straight.”
Isaiah 29:18 “In that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of the obscurity of darkness.”
What incredible drama!! What a wonder this all is!!
Don’t get caught on the wrong side of God when He begins eye surgery on the Jews. Don’t get caught on the wrong side when the wind of the Spirit blows the veil aside! You will regret it forever.
The coming secret mystery, which I have alluded to:
Psalm 74:9-10 “We do not see our signs. There is no longer any prophet, nor is there any among us who knows how long. O God, how long will the adversary reproach us and the enemy blaspheme Your name?
In the verse above we see the importance of prophetic insight into the timing of the coming of the Lord, Israel’s awakening and the tribulation.
This soon to be revealed secret mystery, will rock the world, but the world will not understand it for the same reason as the seven mysteries I’ve outlined above.
As said, I don’t know what it will be just yet, but I do have a sense that it will have something to do with the veil of blindness being lifted from Israel and a God-inflicted blindness coming upon certain sections of the church.
What will lift the veil of blindness upon the Jews? A wind of the Spirit will, but there will be an event to cause it.
What is it exactly that produces light and sight – for Israel?
Have a good look at the following two verses relating to Israel’s release from Egypt:
Jeremiah 32:21 “You have brought Your people Israel out of the land of Egypt with signs and wonders and a strong hand and an outstretched arm, and with great terror.”
Exodus 7:3 “I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and multiply My signs and wonders in the land of Egypt.”
Note that God hardened the heart of Pharaoh to the demand by Moses to “Let My people go.” He then relented and let them go, but later changed his mind and pursued the Israelis only to get his armies drowned in the Red Sea.
God used many signs and wonders at that time.
Today, Israel is almost ready to leave Egypt (the world) again and enter her glorious Promised Land of salvation. Interestingly the antichrist is a type of Pharaoh in this instance. He (the antichrist) will make peace with Israel, but it will be to bait them. Then he will pursue them, as they are saved en mass. He will again meet his fate!
Isaiah 43:19 “Behold, I will do a new thing. Now it shall spring forth, Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert, to give drink to My people, My chosen. This people I have formed for Myself; they shall declare My praise.”
Romans 10:19 “I say, ‘did Israel not know?’ First Moses said, ‘I will provoke you to jealousy by those who are not a nation, I will anger you by a foolish nation.’”
Romans 11:11 “Have they (Jews) stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Jews.”
God would not use unbelievers to provoke His people to jealousy. Those who are not a nation would refer to the multi-racial and cultural nature of the church. The foolish nation would have to be those who are born of the Spirit of God. It would be the true, non-Babylon influenced church, including born-again Jews, now part of the church.
The enemies of God’s people:
These enemies will naturally be enemies of God’s word as well.
Psalm 12:8 “The wicked prowl on every side, when vileness is exalted among the sons of men.”
Amazingly, many churches can’t see that the one on the cross in their stained glass windows is a Jew! They don’t see that the “Banner for the nations” (Isaiah 11:11-12) is a signpost stained with Jewish blood!
This banner for the nations is a short, encapsulated word to the nations. The banner from God speaks of His re-gathering of His people from the nations to their land ahead of their salvation. But what does the banner from the churches say? What does the banner from your church say?
The banner from the churches of replacement theology says: God has finished with the Jews; they are now just like any nation of the world.
The churches of replacement theology, in reality, also desire to “wipe Israel off the map” - their map! Their “final solution” gets rid of God’s call and plan for the Jews. According to them all the curses are now for Israel and all the blessings are for the church only!
Anti-Semitism is the most unfair, and unreasonable discrimination in the world ever. Replacement theology, although with the same goal as Hitler, has a host of Bible verses, all taken way out of context, and flying in the face of reality, is the spirit of error motivated by the spirit of Satan.
Psalm 44:13-14 “You make us (Jews) a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and a derision to those around us, you make us a swear word among the nations, a shaking of the head among the peoples.”
Zephaniah 3:19-20 “Behold at that time (regathering) I will deal with all who afflict you...I will bring you back and gather you, for I will give you fame and praise among all the peoples of the earth.”
Zechariah 8:23 “In those days ten men from every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, ‘Let us go with you, foe we have heard God is with you.’”
Take note from these verses above: Those of anti-Semitism and replacement theology say of the Jews: “reproach, a scorn, derision, a swear word and a shaking of the head.” These ignominious terms are all in one verse! But then God turns it around wonderfully to fame and praise and more!
Note well, very well, how your Bible teacher speaks of the Jews, even in little seemingly innocuous ways. They reveal his heart and his knowledge of God, his closeness to God, or his lack of it. They reveal his closeness to the spirit of Hitler, or the living God.
This is no minor issue! The Bible says: “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” (Matthew 12:24) Don’t tell me I don’t know your heart. You have revealed it yourself, by your words for all to see.
There is no difference between the Jew and the Gentile in Him. And so it will be at the end of the ages with all who are in Him united as one.
As the world steps into hell, they will finally see! All mysteries will be cleared up suddenly, but too late for them to do anything about it.
Don’t mess with your eternal future.
