- 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 507: February 4th 2020.
Covenant of death:
These are words of life!
If painted today, Michelangelo’s legendary masterpiece of God reaching across to touch the open handed finger of Adam, would require Adam to have a clenched fist of defiance, resistance, revolt, contempt and confrontation.
Joseph Stalin, on his death bed was seen to sit up and shake his fist at the ceiling.
It is the love of God that has reached down to lost humanity in salvation with outstretched, open arms. To refuse His love, ways and word is to refuse and reject His eternal covenant promises.
Right before us now, is the clenched fist of the world’s contempt for God’s word and His eternal covenant promises to Israel.
This edition contains some powerful revelation from the heart of God, and some little known facts of fury to come, from our Lord. Many of these things will be a shock.
This is of major, momentous importance and significance for Israel, the church and the world.
How did it all begin?
To effectively look at the Israeli / Palestinian problem today, we have to look at its origin.
The diagram below succinctly, unquestioningly explains it all.
In a nutshell, God chose the top line in blue for His work and rejected the bottom line in red. The Palestinians are essentially Arabs stemming from Ishmael and Esau.
The promises and blessing of God through eternal covenant went to the blue line and not the red line. Remember that Esau sold his birthright to Jacob / Israel in a legal transaction.
Here’s the big thing: God’ covenant promise to Israel includes the land, but the Palestinians now want to reverse this and claim their birthright to the land, which they sold to Israel. Do they have any rights to the land? NO.
Bit Israel messed up really badly. God told them to clear out the Promised Land of all its inhabitants and their idols and false religion, when the moved in. But they only did this partially, creating the entire problem even today.
Here it is laid out by our God:
Numbers 33:50-55 “Speak to the children of Israel saying; ‘when you have crossed the Jordan, into the land of Canaan, then you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, destroy all their engraved stones and high places. You shall divide the land by lot as an inheritance among your families...but if you do not drive them out, then it shall be that those you let remain shall be irritants in your eyes and thorns in your sides and they shall harass you in the land where you dwell.”
The nature of the Palestinians:
Ishmael and Esau were the fathers of the Arab nations, and by extension are types of the Palestinians today, who, in reality are a man-made nation.
What follows applies generally to all of the red line in the diagram above:
Genesis 16:12 “He (Ishmael) shall be a wild man; his hand shall be against every man, and every man’s hand shall be against him and he shall dwell (on the borders) with his brethren.”
Genesis 27:40-41 “By your sword (Esau) you shall live, and you shall serve your brother. It shall come to pass that when you become restless, that you shall break his yolk from your neck. So Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing with which his father blessed him and Esau said in his heart, ‘The days of mourning my father are at hand, then I will kill my brother Jacob / Israel.”
Ezekiel 35:5-6 “Because you have an ancient hatred, and have shed the blood of the children of Israel by the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, when their iniquity came to an end, therefore as I live says the Lord God. I will prepare you for blood and blood will pursue you.
Summary of the nature of the Palestinians: ●Wild man, ● against everyone, ● lives by the sword (violence / terrorism), ●hatred for Jacob / Israel. ●Ancient hatred ●Kill Jacob (Jews)
Do you see how incredibly accurate these descriptions are? You can extend them into the entire Arab / Palestinian situation today! The end goal is to kill the Jews, thus killing God’s plans for them!
This is essentially why the Palestinians will never be able to make genuine peace. This is also a description of the spirit of anti-Semitism.
By the way, Jordan is the ancient land of Edom the home of the original Palestinians. (Esau). Edom means: “Red.”
The great, grand return:
So now we have briefly seen that the problems all began because Israel did not obey God and fully cleanse the Promised Land when they entered in. Israel’s rebellion to God led to their dispersion amongst the nations.
2 Kings 17:15-18 “They rejected His statutes and His covenant that He had made with their fathers...Therefore the Lord was very angry with Israel, and removed them from His sight.”
Now comes the great prophesied return of the Jews to their land. (Isaiah 42:16, Isaiah 29:18) The return has been on the go for some time, but is not complete yet.
Here is an amazing thing, which you and the world’s leaders would do well to take serious note of:
►There is only one time that God refers to doing something with His “whole heart and whole sole” and it is in connection with the restoration of Israel:
Jeremiah 32:37-41 “Behold, I will gather them (Israel) out of all countries where I have driven them in My anger...They shall be My people and I will be their God...And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from doing them good...I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will assuredly plant them in this land, with all My heart and all My soul.”
Leviticus 26:9 “For I the Lord will be leaning towards you, rendering you fruitful, multiplying you, and establishing My covenant with you” (Israel).
The phrase “leaning towards you” is beautiful. It pictures a person turning to you, leaning forward, and giving attention to you, with favour and closeness. It is the opposite of what happened at the dispersion, when God turned away from Israel.
What to me is so amazing is that we have verses like these two above, with their profound meaning, and yet so many world leaders, and church leaders, in their deep, dark blindness resist God’s plans!!
The return to the land is nullified in significance by the evil doctrine of replacement theology.
The great obstruction:
The key words in the verses below are in bold. They clearly show that Israel and not the Palestinians have God’s authority, and choice in the form of inheritance of the land and the city. All else is an ungodly obstruction to the great return of Israel to their land and soon to their Lord – our Lord!
Jeremiah 12:14-17 “Against all My evil neighbours who touch the inheritance which I have caused My people Israel to inherit. Behold, I will pluck them out of their land and pluck out the house of Judah from among them. Then it shall be after I have plucked them out that I will return and have compassion on them (Israel)...and bring them back to their land.”
Nehemiah 2:19-20 (To people who represent the origin of the Palestinians) ‘What is this thing that you are doing? Will you rebel against the king?’ So I answered them and said to them, ‘The God of heaven Himself will prosper us; therefore we His servants will arise and build, (in Jerusalem) but you have no heritage or memorial in Jerusalem.”
1 Kings 8:53 “For You separated them (Israel) from among the peoples of the earth to be Your inheritance as You spoke by Your servant Moses, when You brought our fathers out of Egypt.”
1Chronicles 16:17-18 “The covenant which God made with Abraham and his son Isaac and confirmed to Jacob as a statute, to Israel for an everlasting covenant, saying, to you I will give the land of Canaan as the allotment of your inheritance.”
The entire Palestinian question right here – based on these four verses above!
As far as the Holocaust goes, Israel says, “We shall never forget”, and the anti-Semitic world says, “We shall never remember!” By the way, if you look at the German Nazi Party of WW11 and Israel today, who won? And talk about a win- even out of the ashes, of despair!
You see, you can’t kill or silence God’s work, ways and plans, especially those He is doing, with “His whole heart and soul”, while “leaning forward” attentively to Israel. You will only get yourself killed!
God’s double whammy will be the destruction of the Palestinians, and the judgement upon Israel for her rebellion against Messiah, the latter ending in great victory.
God’s instructions for the land and city:
The verse below shows the exact opposite of the issue today with the so-called settlements and territories. It’s not Israel who are the occupiers, it’s the Palestinians!
Malachi 1:4 “...Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘They (Edom – Palestinians today) may build but I will throw down; they shall be called the Territory of Wickedness, and the people with whom the Lord will have indignation forever. Your eyes shall see, and you shall say, The Lord is magnified beyond the border of Israel.”
2 Chronicles 33:4 “...The Lord said, My name shall be in Jerusalem forever.”
Zechariah 2:12 “The Lord will take possession of Judah as His inheritance in the Holy Land and will again choose Jerusalem.”
Joel 3:20 “Judah (Present day West Bank) shall abide forever and Jerusalem from generation to generation.” (Note is Judah and not the West bank that abides!)
Proverbs 22:28 “Do not remove the ancient landmark (border peg), which your fathers have set.”
Do you think our Lord is going to share His name with Islam? You have to be insane!
There are 9 million residents of Israel now. 6 million are Jews. There are 13 million Palestinians (all Muslims) including the so-called refugees. A simple one man one vote situation would vote Islam into power! Do you see why the one-state / two-state solution is a little complicated?
Biblically, prophetically that won’t happen.
The covenant of death:
Isaiah 28:15-18 “Because you have said, ‘we have made a covenant with death, and with Sheol (hell) we are in agreement. When the overflowing scourge (tribulation period) passes through, it will not come to us, for we have made lies our refuge and under falsehood we have hidden ourselves’... *God says) ‘Your covenant with death shall be annulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand. When the overflowing scourge (tribulation period) passes through, then you shall be trampled down by it.” Verse 22 “Destruction is determined, even upon the whole earth.”
This means that to come into the new antichrist peace covenant, Israel has to break God’s eternal covenant with them. Israel will think that this new covenant with death will give them peace and they will not be clobbered by the tribulation!
Why does the tribulation’s wrath spread to the whole world? Because all the nations are in with the deal and push Israel to make a peace deal with the antichrist.
The comeuppance and retribution of rebellion to God has terrible “rewards” of wrath. The reprisal of well-earned justice will be vengeance upon the pride of the nations.
The political left, worldwide today, is not what it was; it has been taken over by spirits of evil, particularly the Jezebel spirit. They are all working to bring the antichrist onto the stage. They are co-workers to bring in the covenant of death!
At some point, very soon, Israel will be coaxed and hoaxed into breaking God’s eternal land covenant with them and signing the antichrist peace treaty of Daniel 9:27.
The Trump / Kushner peace plan is not the Daniel 9:27 covenant, but may turn out to be a step on the way to the antichrist covenant.
God’s peace plan was revealed long before the Palestinian state was even a thought in the devils mind. But before God’s peace rolls out, tragically Israel will fall for the devils peace treaty of death!
But as we see in the verse below, end-time pride in the heart of man causes him to choose the antichrist’s peace covenant and brings terrible destruction.
Isaiah 24:4-6 “...The haughty (proud) people of the earth languish. The earth is defiled under its inhabitants...they have broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore the curse has devoured the earth...therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned and few are left.”
The covenant of life:
In talking about covenants, I am in no way implying that believers need to come under the Law.
Note in the verses below that God, from His side, keeps His covenant:
Psalm 89:34 “My covenant I will not break, nor alter My word that has gone out from My mouth.”
Romans 11:29 “The gifts and calling of God (upon the Jews) are irrevocable.”
This verse above is written to the Jews, not the church, although it can be applied to the church.
Malachi 2:5 “My covenant was with him, one of life and peace, and I gave them to him that he might fear Me, so he fears Me and was reverent before Me.”
Romans 11:27 “This is My covenant with them (Israel), when I take away their sins.”
Note in the verses above that the true covenant of life from God is not “peace and safety” but “life (risen life) and peace, and it involves sin being removed by the cross – the only thing that can do it.
The antichrist covenant of “peace and safety,” swims in putrid sin, with no cross, which is why it is the covenant of death and hell. (Isaiah 28:15)
So, it’s the covenant of death or the covenant of life and if you chose neither, you have chosen the covenant of death.
The grand summary:
The key words from this edition are: ●Evil neighbours. ●They (Palestinians) will be thorns in your side. (Israel) ●No Palestinian inheritance in Jerusalem. ●Territories of wickedness. ●Covenant of death and hell. ●Covenant of life. ●Destruction is determined on the whole earth. ●Broken the everlasting covenant. ●Make no covenant with them. ●God brings Israel back with all His heart and soul.
The bottom line revealed in this edition is that the Palestinians will never be honest peace makers, and that no Palestinian state will bring peace. Rather it will bring war and wrath.
You really have to be a totally dumb idiot, or totally demon controlled to see a sign saying “Bridge Missing” and then drive over the cliff!
There is enough scripture right here in this edition to be a great sign! Yet in the “wisdom” of the world’s foolish intellectuals, not only have they ignored the signs, but thrown them right out. The funny thing is that it changes nothing. In fact that very rejection is prophetic as well!
Watchmen: Watch, look well, wait, observe, preserve, beware and, save.
Isaiah 49:19 “For your waste and desolate places (land of Israel) and the land of your destruction, will even now be too small for the inhabitants.” (In the completed return)
Mountains in the mist! I took this picture from a chopper some years ago, flying over the Champagne Castle area of the Drakensberg. Beautiful, but hard things in those clouds!
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
