- 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 504: January 14th 2020.
What’s really going on?
These are words of life!
The ticking clock is counting down; crunch time is coming, as your day of reckoning approaches. For whom does the bell toll? For whom is the alarm sounding and the shofar blowing?
It is time for your final preparations. At zero hour it is too late! At the point of no return, there is no turn-around; there is no recount, redo, remake or retake! Be ready now. Be holy!
Those who are wise will be repentant- ready. They will have a glorious flying start! Their words will have spoken and will be known by God, heaven and hell.
Don’t trivialise or underestimate your importance, value, and worth to His kingdom.
So, what’s it all about?
Why is everyone getting so hot under the collar? Why are the nations raging? Why all the new enmities and why are the world’s masses rebelling like never before? (Psalm 2:1)
It’s Satan’s attempt to preserve his world and his people his way. It’s Satan’s attempt to rise above God and receive the world’s worship. It’s the battle between truth and deceptive error. It’s kingdoms in conflict coming to a climax. It’s the depravity of the heart of man trying to dominate. It’s a world of demonic forces and powers fighting their last stand.
It’s all about the last days of the church and the approaching first days of Israel as God’s replacement of the church, as His evangelists in the tribulation period.
What is going on is the dumbing down and blinding of the masses to Satan’s works by Satan, as his time begins to run out. (Revelation 12:12)
What’s going on is the preparations for an enslaved world, controlled by the antichrist.
The devil’s quotes for today:
These quotes were said ages ago, but are so very relevant for the world today. They were all spoken by the devil himself in disguise!
They are all aimed at the ultimate goal of Satan which is to kill, steal and destroy, by creating a utopian world of “peace”.
Firstly, Socialism and communism are the same. They intend producing a common, society of equality, which would bring world peace – so they would have you believe!
The main architects of socialism and communism were, Marx, Lenin, and Stalin. Today, all the liberal left wing parties maintain a social agenda. Governments utilising massive state control are communist or a mix of socialism and communism.
“The goal of socialism is communism”. (Lenin)
Hitler said that the goals of Marxism, Leninism Stalinism will be our “achievable goal.”
“The devil is on my side” (Stalin)
“Communism must abolish biblical truth and morality.” (Communist Manifesto)
“Communism must destroy churches in favour of atheism, the opium of the people” (Marx).
“Communism must destroy all systems in which godly authority is instituted, so that the state can become supreme and all controlling.” (Lenin)
“Communism must destroy all hierarchy’s morality, tradition, and truth driving towards moral and social desolation, upon which the state seizes control.” (Lenin)
“The abolition of private property ownership, independent nations and independent thinking, including education of the masses is included in the goal of communism.”
“Conflict leads us forward” (Karl Marx)
►In effect both communism and socialism is the practice social, economic, and political failure by the demon possessed.
As you can see from these quotes, we are now in a world where many of these things, in various forms are now being implemented in many nations – right before our eyes.
So, at the end of it all, these systems are designed to bring about powerful executive control of the masses by a few. It is presented as a utopian dream, which is a giant lie, only believed by the ignorant or demon possessed! It is an offense to God and His ways.
The Bible predicts an end-time world socialistic government of mass control (Isaiah 10:13-14) Why this? It is because the masses don’t know any better. They have been dumbed down and blinded.
Taking from the rich and giving to the poor is the idealism of economic fools. It never works. Giving to the poor and needy is good, but always from a voluntary point of view, not a central, state-controlled thing.
Socialism seduces the spiritually ignorant, and in the end produces slavery to the state. Socialism will lift you up so that you can fall very far down!
Socialism promises peace and happiness but produces disaster and turmoil. The reason is because it is of the “father of lies.”
Ecclesiastes 10:2-3 “A wise man’s heart is at his right hand, but a fool’s heart is at his left. Even when a fool walks along the way, he lacks wisdom, and he shows everyone that he is a fool.”
What an amazing identification of the right and liberal left politically speaking!
Now we come to the god of the modern world – democracy.
The lie of democracy, that almost everyone falls for all the time, is that a majority of people are right. But what is right or wrong? If the absolute guide – the Bible has been removed from society, there is no right or wrong then, except in your own amoral, blinded mind’s eye.
Democracy is fine and works in a nation under God, where His values are still found.
At the end of the day, godless democracy will fall and fail – big time. The nations will vote Satan and his puppet, the antichrist into world power!
Democracy is actually a threat to the world. Satan is the god of the world and he is using democracy as a smoke-screen and shield to bring himself to power as the antichrist. He will not share rulership with anyone when he comes to world power! He will devour democracy.
Socialism and communism and democracy, ultimately has to be anti-Semitic, because God’s call for Israel is not to assimilate into the nations. God will deal with Israel separately and in a different manner to the world. In a sense Israel is going to become God’s new “church.”
Numbers 23:9 “From the hills, I behold him, (Israel) a people dwelling alone, not reckoning itself among the nations.” Zechariah 10:9
The mass media:
The media is Satan’s great tool for fools. It has speedily evolved into a monster of manipulation. It never used to be so spiritually charged and evil in earlier days.
Propaganda is a triumphant tool to seduce and control the ignorant, and properly ill-informed. So who wields the tool? It is the master of mankind and the world - Satan.
When you listen to Satan, you always lose your free will and choice. He rules you like a slave driver. Choice is under attack. When your choice becomes hijacked, you become a tool of the tool-wielder.
In the kingdom of God there is: Peace, righteousness and joy. It is as “valuable as a pearl”. It is not of the world, and it shall “break all other kingdoms in pieces.” (Various verses)
In the kingdom of the world there is: Sin, unrighteousness, unholiness, distress, disquiet, sorrow and more.
Yet the media attacks and belittles the things of God’s kingdom and exalts the things of the world’s kingdom!
So, what’s really going on with the mass-media?
The age-old Hitler-used principle “Repeat the lie often enough and the masses will believe it,” is the principle of the media today.
Satan makes you stupid, and he is working overtime to make the masses a gullible, defenceless instrument of his choosing. The price you pay for this is unimaginably high!
The easiest people to dupe are the spiritually ignorant, with no knowledge of God. The only way to be truly spiritually wise and ready for the kingdom, is to be grounded in the word of God.
Now is the time to know what’s going on, or at least the basics. It is vitally important to know the author and interpreter of the Bible - the Holy Spirit. These are the days of massive, growing ignorance fuelled by Satan.
Satan’s attacks on the true, awake church will not succeed, but his attacks on the spineless, unarmed, unprepared church will succeed! He is using many methods to neutralise the church and make it ineffective.
Watering down the gospel and making it appealing to the masses is occurring, and is the very reason for the decline of Christianity in the West.
Much of the church is sinking because it is being re-characterised as it loses its shining light of holiness in favour of all manner of evil.
The devil can’t stamp the true church out, but he can kill its fruits of holiness.
The rejection and persecution of Christians is primarily for the reason of their fruits of holiness. It is Satan’s attempt to strip Christians of their godly identity. This makes them fit in with the world.
It really is this holiness in you that the world hates with a passion. It’s their way of attacking our Lord. Holiness is a product of God, of the new-birth. Unrighteousness and sin is a product of fallen man and Satan himself.
Romans 6:22-23 “Now being made free from sin, and becoming servants of God, you have fruit unto holiness and the end everlasting life...”
►Holiness is the ground in which you grow in grace and glory!
Today we are in a world of unholy Christians – sold out to the spirit of the world, with a few verses added to give the right appearance.
Worldlifying churchianity is what is really on the go now. Much of the falling church is now identified with, and has more in common with sin than holiness.
Their yapping, prancing pastors and leaders have taught them that materialism is central.
The biggest idol in the world is the love of the world. This why the Bible says friendship with the world is enmity with God. You cannot be a friend of God and the world!
The warnings from God always come before judgement! Much of the church has ignored he warnings for too long. “Judgement begins in the house of God.” (1 Peter 4:17)
Do you want to know if you are on the right road? Just look at how many are on the road of mixture and how many stand separated. The right road is the narrow road with few on it. The wide road to destruction is the dark road in which the lights have gone out!
Are you amongst the Christian majority? If so, you are on the wrong, wrong road.
In fact a much more telling and deadly issue is the fact that those on the wide road have left the cross aside! They walk right past it every day instead of picking it up! The cross of Calvary together with your own daily cross, are the instruments of true, separate holiness and discipleship.
God wants you to be separate from worldliness in as many ways as possible. The devil and his wolves in pulpits want you to be joined together with worldliness – to fit in well and comfortably.
As a true, on fire believer, you will be known by your fruits, which are far different to those of the world. You will be a glorious, shining oddball. And yes you will be creating “sparks” which will set some on fire for our Lord, and cause great trouble with others!
Job5:7 “Man is born into trouble, as the sparks fly upwards.”
Many unsaved people that get to know you will hate you because you are a reflection of what they are not and can’t be no matter how hard they try.
Israel and the sign of earthquakes:
There are so many end-time signs, but there is one with a unique message to it. It is little known, but of great importance. It is the sign of earthquakes.
The earthquake sign is primarily for Israel and signals her repentance and salvation, when the shofar sounds at the twinkling of sunset.
“The stones will cry out” (Luke 19:40) and the earth will shake. The world will know that Israel’s dry bones are arising and coming to life.
God often uses earthquakes as a sign. Most are simply a natural phenomenon. But earthquakes, especially mentioned in the Bible have prophetic meaning.
Let’s have a look at this most interesting situation:
●When Israel left Egypt for the Promised Land in the great Exodus, an earthquake struck just as Moses was instructed to go up Mount Sinai.
Exodus 19:18 “Mount Sinai was completely in smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire. Its smoke ascended like the smoke of a furnace and the whole mountain quaked greatly.”
●At the crucifixion an earthquake struck, as the temple veil was split from top to bottom:
Matthew 27:51 (Amp) “At once, the curtain veil of the sanctuary of the temple, was torn in two from the top to the bottom. The earth shook and the rocks were split.”
●At the resurrection, an earthquake struck:
Matthew 28:2 (Mary came to the tomb) “And behold there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone from the door and sat on it.”
●At the dispensation change from the church age to the tribulation an earthquake strikes:
Revelation 6:12 (At tribulation start) “I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair and the moon became like blood.”
●At the start of the great war of Gog and Magog (WW111) an earthquake strikes:
Ezekiel 38:18-19 “It will come to pass at the same time, when Gog comes against the land of Israel, says the Lord God, that My fury will show in My face. For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath, I have spoken. Surely in that day there will be a great earthquake in the land of Israel.”
This earthquake occurs when Israel turns to the Lord en masse (Ezekiel 38:23, 39:7, 29)
●As the two Jewish witnesses are raised from the dead and raptured to heaven at some point beyond mid-tribulation, there will be a great earthquake:
Revelation 12:13 “They (two witnesses) heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them ‘Come up here.’ And they ascended to heaven in a cloud and their enemies saw them. In the same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. In the earthquake seven thousand men were killed, and the rest were afraid and gave glory to God of heaven.”
•We see an earthquake strike early in the Exodus as the children of Israel travel to the Promised Land. •We see an earthquake strike as our Lord was crucified. •We see an earthquake strike as the temple veil, which symbolises blindness on the Jews, is torn from top to bottom. •We see an earthquake strike as the resurrection occurred. •We see an earthquake strike as the church age ends and the tribulation begins. (Time of Jacob’s – Israel’s trouble) •We see an earthquake strike as the war of Gog and Magog gets underway, which is when the Jews begin to be saved en masse. •Finally we see an earthquake strike as the Jewish two witnesses are raptured.
All of this paints an incredible, amazing picture, of which you should take note! Do you see it? I hope you do!
►For Israel, the Promised Land is a type of their coming salvation. The cross is the only way of salvation and not the temple or law. The resurrection makes it all totally supernatural. The tribulation start, the war of Gog and Magog, and salvation of the Jews all occur in very close proximity to each other.
These events are all marked by an earthquake.
Gog and Magog – not yet:
Don’t jump the gun. I see many are saying that we are in the Gog and Magog war of Ezekiel 38 & 39 (WW111). We are not. We are in the build-up to it. We are in the forerunner period.
There are some very distinctive evidences of WW111 in the Bible. They are not here yet.
Egypt is always a type of the world and a type of Israel in bondage. “Let My people go” out of Egypt to the Promised Land, is a type of Israel’s salvation still to come.
Who starts WW111 (Gog and Magog)? It is not President Trump! It is God!! He (God) will put “hooks in the jaws” of Russia and her allies and draw them into the conflict. Note that it was God who drew Pharaoh and his armies to their death. It is God who starts WW111!
Pharaoh eventually did yield to Moses and agreed to “Let My people go.” That is a type of the antichrist’s peace treaty. God hardened Pharaoh’s heart so that he would go after the Jews to kill them after he had let them go. The antichrist will make a peace treaty with Israel, and then turn against them to kill them.
As Pharaoh and his armies were killed in the Red Sea, so the armies of the world will meet their fate too in a sea of blood, surrounding Jerusalem.
Yes we are seeing the convergence of, and aligning of nations and preparations for this great war, and it will begin suddenly, but it’s not just yet.
What is really going on?
God’s glory is arising, the world is falling, the counterfeit church is sinking; the media is becoming Satan’s mouthpiece. The true Christians are getting stronger and stronger even in weakness.
►You can’t kill the resurrected Lord and His word. You can only kill yourself trying! In fact, if the Bible is the word of God, it is the only resurrected book in history and you can’t kill it!
Only those with a small, insignificant God can criticise the things of God and His word.
We must have our spiritual eyes opened to see into the spirit realm, to see demonic attacks, to see the operations of the kingdom of the world, and to see into the word of God, to see prophetic things to come, and the timing of those things, and to see that we are the victors.
We must have spiritual eyes and ears in the face of the anti-God onslaught.
►The truth will set you free”, says the Bible. But the truth in the devil’s hands will bring you into bondage in the name of freedom!
In summary: The devil operates through the self life or sin nature of man, the world-system, and the demonic. All three are arising in their last stand of intensified rebellion against the living God, before their ultimate demise.
The god of this world and its media-voice are trying to strike a death blow to the godly principles of a nation under God.
Heaven is coming soon. Keep your spiritual eyes tuned in.
Think about this:
In heaven there will be no relationship breakdowns, no stress, anxiety, or trouble. There will be no loneliness, and no purposelessness. There will be no equality, except in that we all have the same foundation. We will be as different as the stars are from each other forever. We will be known by our differing brightness.
Be mightily blessed and stand strong.
I took these two pictures in the beautiful Namib Desert.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
