- 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 506: January 28th 2020.
Israel and the nations:
These are words of life!
Many people seek to find the best place in the world to live. The problem is that the heart of man is the same everywhere. There may be variables, but be sure, “finding your life in the world” isn’t wise. Be where God wants you to be.
There’s a principle contained in Genesis 12:3 promising that if you bless Israel you will be blessed and if you curse Israel you will be cursed, which extends far beyond the individual.
God deals with individuals, families, businesses, ethnic nations and governments of the world. Amongst other things, God deals with them based on how these entities deal with Israel.
Obadiah 1:15 “The day of the Lord upon all nations is near; as you have done, it shall be done to you; your reprisal shall return upon your own head.”
This is a most exciting subject in which there is great biblical, prophetic insight, that people and nations would be wise to take note of. Political leaders – take note!
Nations, take careful note of the repeating patterns and how nothing has changed.
The big mistake:
The big mistake in some Christian thinking is that they can transform the world. You can’t get rid of the world’s evil heart no matter how good you make it look on the outside. You must die to the world. The same applies to the self-life. (Galatians 6:14)
There is a degree of betterment and blessing that comes to a nation under God, but it still remains part of the world-system, and these days it’s all a lot more spiritually charged!
The world’s problems can never be solved by those in and of the world, because the world cannot see the truth. There is no way to know truth apart from knowing the God of all truth. (Except for the basics)
Only when you are truly born of God do you hear His word for yourself, the nations and for Israel. When you know God and His word you can also see those who don’t.
When you are truly born of God, hearing His voice becomes instinctive. If not, you are in trouble, or you have a lot of forsaking and growing ahead of you.
It is imperative that nations know the basics of God’s plans for Israel, especially now while they are all being unfolded before our eyes. But, as we know, few do or even care – to their terrible detriment! (Unfortunately that includes a large part of the church.)
God hardened the heart of the already rebellious Pharaoh, so that he would pursue the Jews after he let them go, and God puts hooks in the jaw of anti-Semitic Russia to draw her into war with Israel.(Ezekiel 38) Do you think he will do nothing to the rebellious church that comes against Israel? He will cut them off! (Romans 11:22) In fact many of them are already cut off and they haven’t even noticed!
It’s not very clever, to come against Israel or Jerusalem. That makes you an enemy of God, inspired by Satan.
1 Chronicles 21:1 “Now Satan stood up against Israel...”
Zechariah 3:2 “The Lord said to Satan, The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you!
God brings judgment on nations not so much for their sin, but because their spiritual light has gone out, and then what follows is an anti-Semitic stance leading to their judgement.
The united assembly of fools:
Please read the following verses. They paint a dramatic and powerful picture of end-time nations – playing out right now. These verses alone put any Shakespeare plot to shame!
Isaiah 54:15-17 “Indeed they (nations) shall surely assemble, but not because of Me. Whoever assembles against you (Israel) shall fall for your sake...No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgement, you shall condemn.”
Psalm 83:2-5 “Behold Your enemies make a tumult; and those who hate You have lifted up the head. (Pride) They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, and consulted together against Your sheltered ones. They have said, ‘come, let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more’. For they have consulted together, with one consent; they form a confederacy against You.”
Psalm 21:11-12 “Many (nations) intended evil for you, they devised a plot. You will make them turn back. You will make ready Your arrows on Your string towards their faces.”
Micah 4:11 “Many nations have gathered against you (Israel), who say, let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion. But they do not know the thoughts of the Lord, nor do they understand His counsel; for He will gather them like sheaves to the threshing floor”. (Tribulation)
Note this string of words from the above verses: ●Crafty counsel, ●Consulted together x2, ●One consent, ●Confederacy, ●A plot devised, ●Let’s defile Israel.
This is the collective, assembled course of the nations united in demon possession!
The nations “swear an oath” against Israel, causing her to “eat ashes and mingle her drink with tears.” (Psalm 102:8-10) But God will make these nations a “firepan in the woodpile – a fiery torch,” and will save Jerusalem” (Zechariah 12:6)
As the tribulation of great judgement gets underway, we see the great tragedy of the nations in rebellion to God, giving their power and authority to Satan – the antichrist.
Revelation 17:13-14 “These (nations) are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. These will make war with the Lamb and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are called chosen and faithful.”
Ultimately these foolish nations gather under their new world leader – the antichrist, and make the most futile attempt in all history to make war against the living God.
Revelation 19:19 “I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army.”
Zechariah 12:2-3 “Behold I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding nations, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; and all who would heave it away (divide it) will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.”
Zechariah 12:9 “It shall happen in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.”
Zechariah 2:8 “...He who touches you (Israel) touches the apple of His eye.”
The mass-media, the mouthpiece of the god of the world, will promote and spread the terrible, horrendous, hideous, assembled, plot and counsel of the nations against Israel.
God defends Israel:
The history of Israel and Jerusalem has been of satanic attempts to stamp out God’s calling on Israel, which is all culminating and dovetailing in these days.
The scary scars of war are etched all over Jerusalem, engraved, incised, inscribed, impaled and imprinted forever upon her stones. The brandings of the Holocaust are burned into the psyche of every Jew. The saving wounds of Messiah’s bloodshed, currently rejected, are soon to be seen with clarity and great joy – more than Israel’s companions. (The church!)
Psalm 45:7 “You love righteousness and hate wickedness therefore God, your God has anointed you, with the oil of gladness, more than your companions.”
The nations of the world think they can “hunt the souls of My people and keep themselves alive” (Ezekiel 13:18-19). They are world champion fools!
Ezekiel 39:3 (WW111) “I will knock the bow out of your left hand (Russia) and cause the arrows to fall out of your right hand. You shall fall upon the mountains of Israel, you and all your troops and peoples who are with you. I will give you to the birds of prey and beasts to be devoured.”
Isaiah 66:14-16 “The hand of the Lord shall be known to His servants and His indignation to His enemies. For behold the Lord will come with fire and with His chariots like a whirlwind, to render His anger with fury and His rebuke with flames of wrath, and the fire shall devour them.”
Man’s inhumanity to man at the Holocaust was the result of the Nazi party, the military leaders, Hitler and Satan – all in that order. Today we are seeing the same thing in the nations of the world. It’s going that way exactly. It just hasn’t reached its climactic manifestation in the coming Holocaust.
The glorious end for Israel:
Deuteronomy 28:37 “You shall become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword (curse-word) among all the nations where the Lord will drive you.” (Anti-Semitism)
Zephaniah 3:20 “At that time I will bring you back. I will gather you and give you fame and praise among all the people of the earth, when I return your captives before your eyes, says the Lord.”
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, for we have heard that God is with you.”
Psalm 68:13 “Though you (Israel) are down among the sheepfolds, yet you will be like the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold.”
Isaiah 17:7 “In that day a man will look to his Maker, and his eyes will have respect for the Holy One of Israel.”
►Where is America in Bible prophecy? If the US remains a friend of Israel it will survive, allied with Israel, and be blessed. If not – goodbye cruel world – USA!
The Star of David:
The Israeli Star of David, their eternal symbol, has a very interesting history. It is no coincidence that it, like the menorah, was chosen to represent the nation of Israel. Even the blue colour of the star on the flag has biblical origins.
The Star of David is synonymous in many respects with the pomegranate. The star’s pattern comes from the crown (calyx) of the pomegranate, which has numerous other spiritual meanings.
Pomegranate: ●It is an ancient symbol of new birth and life representing the blood line of the Jews. ●It has numerous seeds in it which represent Israel with numbers like the sand of the sea. There are usually 613 seeds in the pomegranate corresponding to the 613 Hebrew laws. ●It is a symbol of victory and prosperity. ●Pomegranate blossoms were embroidered on the High Priest’s ephod. Small golden pomegranate-shaped bells were sown onto the base of the High Priest’s garment, so that when he walked in the Holy of Holies, people outside the veil could hear him walk, meaning he was alive and God had accepted the sacrifice for the sins of Israel. ●The little pomegranate bells were called, “The bells of life.” (One was recently unearthed near the Temple Mount). ●Pomegranates are one of the foods used at Rosh Hashanah – the Feast of Trumpets. They are traditionally eaten on the second day of Rosh Hashanah, being called the “new fruit”, symbolising the new-year and a new dispensation.
What a lot of exciting, relevant symbolism!
David and Goliath today:
Like Goliath, the nations that mess with Israel, don’t know what they’re up against!
The Arab nations including the Palestinians, if we could call them a nation (which they are not), have historically come against Israel, to their own detriment. Goliath is a type of the Palestinians today with their world of supporters against Israel (David).
The outcome will be the same!
Interestingly the name Goliath, means “splendour”, coming from a root word meaning to “reveal.” The revelation of his affront against Israel was and is today, splendid in the sight of Israel enemies.
Goliath came from Gath, next to Gaza. Gath means “winepress.” (Strong’s H1661) The tribulation period is also called God’s winepress! (Revelation 14:19-20, Isaiah 63:2-3)
Goliath was six cubits high, had six pieces of armour and had a sword weighing six hundred shekels. In other words 666! (The number of the antichrist). David buried the head of Golaith in Jerusalem. Legend says at Galgotha, which name means “the skull.” (The name Calvary also means “skull”) This was where our Lord was crucified, crushing the head of Satan in the overall process.
Interesting the Bible says the sword of Goliath was wrapped in cloth and kept hidden behind the ephod – the High Priests garment. (1 Samuel 21:8-9)
There is a lot of prophetic symbolism here. We have not seen the end of Goliath and his sword of attack against Israel yet! But the world’s “swords” must first get through God’s holy ephod – His word, where they will again be doomed!
The big take away is that Goliath was blind to God and therefore weak, and David, who knew God, was deadly! Shall I say that again: David (Israel today) is deadly! David today is already the victor!
How exciting and amazing it is to be child of David’s offspring – not a child of Rome!!
The nature of the coming peace treaty:
I will be writing more on this after the “deal of the century” has been revealed today.
The antichrist rides out onto the world’s stage with a bow, but no arrows. (Revelation 6:2) Contrast this with our Lord at the Second Coming - Revelation 19:11-13. A bow and no arrows speak of deception and the coming peace covenant.
The word “bow” (above) is the same word as the rainbow in the sky at the end of Noah’s flood. The ark came to rest on Mt. Ararat as the flood subsided. Ararat means: “The curse is reversed.” But be very careful here, because there is a great deceptive peace covenant coming that will promise that the “curse” of Israel will be reversed! The true promise of peace comes at the end of the tribulation, after judgement, the same as at the end of the flood – not at the start.
Daniel 11:32 “Those who do wickedly against the covenant (existing), he will corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong and carry out great exploits.”
We are fast approaching the critical time of great disaster for many nations as well as a time of reprieve for some nations who will support God’s plan for Israel.
Your source of information on these things is of vital, importance. You don’t want to be on the wrong side, which is the side of most nations and their deceived, blinded leaders and media.
Jeremiah 31:10 “Hear the word of the Lord O nations (Gentiles) and declare it in the isles afar off and say, ‘He who scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him as a shepherd does his flock.”
Psalm 33:12 “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, and the people whom He has chosen as His inheritance.”
This is one of my older art works representing Jerusalem. There are a number of hidden symbols in the mixed media painting, which is a collage with some gold leaf and cement.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
