►We have now reached 46 million regular visitors.
►Next Edition, Lord willing: "Peace or torment"
- Sovereignty / annexation of Judea and Samaria now on hold. Will proceed later in July according to Israeli government sources. Opposition to it grows.
- Virus growth continues to expand at alarming rate. Lockdown and restrictions return to some areas.
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.”
Psalm 5:10 “Pronounce them guilty, O God! Let them fall by their own counsels. Cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions, for they have rebelled against you.”
Psalm 83:3 “They have taken crafty council against Your people, and consulted together against Your sheltered (treasured) ones.”
Psalm 64:2 “Hide me from the secret plots of the wicked, from the rebellion of the workers of iniquity.”
Isaiah 60:2-3 “ Darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people, but the Lord will arise over you (Israel) and His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your light.”
Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose of this report is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah.

Shabbat Shalom to all!
Watchmen what do you see?
Masses are in the salvation firing lines. This will include masses of prodigals and backslidden Christians. Entire churches will awaken to end-time Bible prophecy.
At the same time many, specifically those who are not, and come against being Spirit filled, will be taken over by strong and powerful deceptive spirits and fall away. They will join with the spirit of the antichrist and false spirits of the ecumenical, interfaith, one-world order system.
As the world shakes, more and more will look for stability – and find it in our Lord. The shaking is about to become extremely severe and masses will seek the truth, but because their hearts are not repentant and right the truth will not find them.
Many will go with what they believe is truth, but the truth-teller may be a fraud to begin with.
There are some out there presenting wonderful truth, rightly applied, but they are few and far between. When you encounter them, value and treasure them, and pray for them to continue.
As spiritual darkness descends, as prophesied in numerous passages, the entire world will be engulfed in the darkness of encroaching sin and wickedness. In very thick darkness light can’t penetrate and the light merges with darkness. (Luke 11:35)
Many times I have wandered through various wildlife areas at night with a torch. You need to watch carefully where you are going. You need to be a watchman alright!
Sometimes as you shine the torch, it picks up the shining, glowing eyes of a silent animal deep in the bush. You don't know if its a friend or foe, just from the glowing eyes.
If the torch doesn’t shine truly and brightly, how can you see and watch where you are going?
I know that many ministers and prophecy teachers read The Prophetic Scroll, and judging by what a lot of them have said, there is a growing unity in the message amongst us. That would be like many together, each with a torch, shining together in the darkness.
At the end of the day, the light of God’s truth is to guide us into the bright shining eternal glory of heavenly light, with an abundant entrance.
You don’t want to just scrape into heaven by the skin of your teeth, smelling like hell.
So, the important job of the watchman’s torch is to shed light on the right way and expose the wrong way. People’s lives are affected and changed by these things.
Not too long ago some so-called watchmen, under the curse of Nibiru taught their deceived followers that the planet Nibiru was about to strike the earth and destroy it. This was taught by the Revelation 12 –sign teachers.
Some today teach the most outrageous, dangerous, Satan-rooted heresy like: Modern day Jews can never repent because they are cursed, because a small group of them stoned Steven nearly 2000 years ago!
Disagreement amongst watchmen detracts and harms the message and Bible prophecy. It means some are not hearing from the Spirit of God, who has a unified message of pure truth. Too many watchmen are full of pride, watching through blinded eyes. They need to get out of ministry!
Agreement amongst watchmen adds weight and substance to the message. Agreement highlights and shines on the truth, confirming and establishing it.
Pride is a watchman’s light-killer. It dims the light and confuses it with the darkness. Pride in a Christian minster is terribly dangerous. It deceives him with his self-importance. It blinds him to the light.
2 Corinthians 11:13-14 “Such are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Messiah. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.”
The angel of light, Satan is in the darkness of the night! “Watchmen, watchmen, what of the night? “ (Isaiah 21:11) Watchman, are you looking into the night with your light? Do you see what is of the “angel of light?” Do you watch, see and warn?
Jeremiah 6:17-18 “I set watchmen over you, saying, ‘listen to the sound of the trumpet.’ But they said. ‘We will not listen!’ Therefore hear O nations and learn O congregations, what will happen. Hear O earth! I am bringing disaster on this people, the fruit of their own schemes (thoughts), because they have paid no attention to My word and have rejected My instruction.”
In these above we see the sad reaction of the world to God's warning. They rejected it. That is exactly where we are today. But it’s quite another thing, and just as tragic when the watchman speaks a lot of hogwash and the people think he speaks the truth.
The most valuable torch-battery that a watchman can have is the cross of Calvary. It creates the power to give pure light, and strips out pride and its error.
The wonder of the cross is that it shows you that you are not valuable and precious, but that you are a dying rat with rabies, deserving of death. Then it raises you and gives you great eternal value.
Today we have a flood of ministers, ministries and so-called watchmen who are cross-less. They are of “another Jesus”. They are Spirit-less.
Their goal is your material wealth, so that they can benefit from it too. They teach self-improvement, self-esteem, self importance, all without the cross, which kills self. The speak the rat language.
They are not enemies of Christ. They are enemies of the cross of Christ! (Philippians 3:18) So they actually end up with “another Christ”!
The power of the cross and resurrection now works from inside your heart, where once the rat and blind bat lived.
Only stupid watchmen use weak, half-flat batteries in their torch. In their blindness they set themselves up as God’s editor, removing all the hard sayings and severity from their doctrine, producing spineless, worldly, weak counterfeit Christians.
It’s always the same people that get caught in big errors. They seem to attract all the rubbish. There’s a reason for that. It is because of their hidden pride, and because they have let in a spirit of error and have not cast it out or repented. It comes back seven times worse.(Matthew 12:45)
You need to be very careful and diligent with your faith. Examine it and guard it, and always move forward in total surrender to all truth, and actively avoid the error out there.
We see the two white horse riders contrasted in the Bible. Revelation 6:2 sees the rider on a white horse, given a crown (corona) and with a bow but no arrow, symbolising deception. Then we see God’s white horse rider at the end of the Revelation.
Revelation 19:11-14 “I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse, and He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war...and the armies in heaven clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.”
Notice the accompanying riders! The antichrist rider flies onto the stage with three other riders of the apocalypse - riders of deception, wielding death, destruction, and chaos.
Now notice our Lord on a white horse flying out of heaven with great armies of saints in fine linen, on white horses. The fine linen is the “righteousness of the saints”. (Revelation 19:8) Guess who these are? That’s us.
But note that we all return to make righteous war with our Lord. Since when do you go to war dressed in fine white linen? It is the final victory – the victory of fine righteousness over dirty wickedness! – Glory, I say!
Note well that at the marriage supper it is the church who are in fine while linen. Note well that as soon as dinner is over the white horse rider and the entire church still in white linen ride magnificently out of heaven at the Second Coming.
What amazing proof of a pre-tribulation rapture!!
Edition 508: February 11th 2020.
Amazing Rapture facts
These are words of life!
It’s amazing how new rapture facts just appear in the air all the time. This is because we are getting closer all the time and the true light is getting brighter!
In this edition I want to present you with a number of facts about the rapture all put together, which gives a clearer understanding. I have not shared some of this before.
I will look at some amazing facts and revelation contained in the Feasts of the Lord, particularly Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets.)
This relates to the time of the rapture of the church. So if you are bound in hand-me-down, “no one knows the day or the time,” erroneous church tradition, you better click out of here now, or be prepared to have you cart of apples overturned.
Let me give you some food for thought: God warned Jericho before the coming destruction. He also warned Sodom and Gomorrah, and the people of Noah’s day, and many others.
Would it be that God also warns of the soon coming world-wide destruction called the tribulation period? Of course it is so. Then a logical presumption is that we will know by these warnings when the pre-tribulation rapture will take place.
Many people just can’t and won’t believe their traditional view has been faulty.
Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets)
This is one of the seven feasts of the Lord, which plot the course of world history, Israel and the church, and into the Millennium in their prophetic parallels. The first five have been fulfilled. The remaining three will be fulfilled in the same manner, which is literal.
Rosh Hashanah is the next in line to be fulfilled. (The Feast of Pentecost, the start of the church age was the last one.)
The previous five fulfilled feasts have no trumpet blast associated with them. Rosh Hashanah (Trumpets) has 100 trumpet blasts associated with it and the following two feasts also have trumpet blasts. This means that Rosh Hashanah signals something new on the go.
It is so. It signals the end of the primary dealings of God with the church and a switch-over back to dealings with Israel, completing the Old Covenant (Daniel’s seventieth week).
Rosh Hashanah is unique in that it begins on an unknown day, either one of two, when the new moon is sighted. The feast lasts two days. So, although no one knows the exact day and hour, it’s within a very short period of time – two days.
This is gaining acceptance amongst solid Bible believers.
There are many titles for Rosh Hashanah, all with significant meanings. Here are some:
Rosh Hashanah is called or associated with: ●The hidden day. ●The day of judgement (tribulation period). ●The day of the awakening trumpet blast. ●The last trumpet blast ●The day of remembrance . ●The opening of the gates of heaven. ●The day of the raising of the dead ●The Coronation of the Messiah.
■The hidden day:
The name, “hidden day”, (Yom Hakeseh) is most interesting. This is a parallel with the term “no one knows the day of hour.” The start of Rosh Hashanah and its events are secretly hidden because of its unknown starting point.
Psalm 27:5 “In the time of trouble, He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle, He shall hide me. He shall set me high upon a rock.”
Hebrew scholars relate the verse above to the “time of Jacob’s trouble” or the tribulation period. But it is also closely affiliated with the hidden day of Rosh Hashanah. Many believe (me too) that Rosh Hashanah will be the kick off of the tribulation.
■The opening of the gates of heaven:
Isaiah 26:2 Open the gates that the righteous nation that keeps the truth may enter in.” (Psalm 118:19-20)
Hebrew tradition maintains that these gates will open on Rosh Hashanah. They will open on Yom Hakeseh, the hidden day that no one knows the exact day or hour of.
This relates to the saved believers at the rapture entering the gates of heaven, but also to the gates of heaven being opened for Israel in the broader sense of their salvation during the tribulation.
■The trumpet of awakening speaks of the awakening of Israel to the Messiah which occurs in fullness in the tribulation period. It also is a double reference to the church awakening in resurrection at the rapture.
The term, the “last trumpet” relates to the last trumpet for the church age. There is also a last trumpet for Israel at the Second Coming.
The shofar trumpet was also used at the Exodus (Exodus 19:19). It was also used at the battle of Jericho (Joshua 6:20) and at the Ingathering of Israel (Isaiah 27:13), Most importantly the shofar blast is used to signal the repentance of Israel! (Isaiah 58:1)
■The coronation of Messiah and the wedding relates to the events for the church and our Messiah in heaven after the rapture. (More on this another time).
The point that I have often made and do so again, is if Rosh Hashanah is not fulfilled by the rapture and tribulation start, then what else would find such accurate and amazing fulfilment in this feast? The answer is nothing.
Amazing Hebrew idioms:
We must bear in mind that the Bible was written by Jews to Jews of the Old Covenant and a mostly Jewish early church. There are dozens of Hebrew idioms used in the New Covenant. Not surprisingly many of them relate to our subject – the rapture of the church.
Here are some rapture idioms to throw you into a tail spin:
■No one knows the day or hour. This is actually a Hebrew idiom meaning no one knows the day or hour of the start of Rosh Hashanah because it could be one of two days. But two days is the limit, not a general - no one knows!
Do you see how that changes the well used traditional customary belief? (And it makes such perfect sense!)
If you want to get rid of the Rosh Hashanah connection then the plain use of language means a very short defined period of time and not a wide unknown time.
Day: Strong’s G2250, “hemera.“ Meanings: One single day between light and dark.
Hour Strong’s G5610, “hora.” Meanings: A defined short point in time.
Day and hour means a specific short point in time.
■The twinkling of an eye: The rapture will occur incredibly fast – in a “twinkling of an eye”. (1 Corinthians 15:51)This is another insightful idiom. In Hebrew tradition, the twinkling of an eye is that time period at sunset when the sun hits the horizon and appears to twinkle for a moment.
Does that mean that the rapture will occur at sunset? – Yes, I would say so - Jerusalem time.
These, below are not really idioms, but are misconceptions about the word meanings:
■The last trump is often thought to be the last trump of Revelation 11:15-18. It is not. It is the last trump for the church age. Besides, John wrote the Revelation many years after Paul wrote of the last trump. He could not have been referring to the last trump of Revelation.
■The great apostasy / falling away must come before the rapture, so they say. But the apostasy could also be referring to the rapture itself! It does not have to mean a “falling away from the faith.” In the original, it simply means “departure.” Context must be applied. There are other verses speaking of churches becoming lukewarm and apostate, but on this occasion it refers to the departure of the church – the rapture.
Some rapture facts:
●Come up here:
Revelation 4:1 “After these things, (continuous thought) I looked and behold a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, ‘come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.”
“After these things” and “after this,” refers to what is immediately after the previous three chapters on the church age. From here on the church is not see on earth again during the tribulation period, but Israel is and so are the saints who are saved during the tribulation.
“Come up here” Strong’s G305, “Anabaino”. Meanings: Spring up. Rise up, enter in, or ascend.
John was raptured at this point, just before the tribulation begins – a type for the church.
Psalm 47:5 “God has gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of trumpet.”
Romans 11:25 speaks of salvation going to the Jews when he full number of Gentiles has come in. The term “come in” is Strong’s G1525, “Eiserchomai.” Meanings: Come in, enter into existence, or come to life.
The meaning of this is normally seen to be the full number of Gentiles being saved. That is true, but the word meaning also applies perfectly to the rapture. In other words, when the full number of Gentiles (the church) has been raptured, all Israel will be saved!
How and amazing is that?
If we take it a step further, who is it that acts as God’s evangelists in the tribulation period? It should be the church, but the church is nowhere to be found. It is Israel and God Himself.
Note: In the tribulation period there will be a huge apostate Babylonian-influenced church, left behind at the rapture that will be trying to win people to their false-prophet led false church.
The rapture will be a hated thing because it separates forever. The world church will have no rapture, because they are not separated from the world in the first place. Even their Jesus is a cross-less unholy, fictitious Jesus – another Jesus!
2 Kings 2:11 “Then it happened, as they continued and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.”
The rapture is the great separator! By the way, the word “holy” means separate, apart, pure.
The rapture will be hated because it will remove people who are 100% perfect from the unholy, unrighteous, sin-loving masses. Yes, true believers are 100% perfect in their re-born spirit, not in soul or body. Unbelievers have no re-born spirit. They are one with their father the devil.
●“It was given to Satan to overcome the saints”! (Revelation 13:7) But how can this be? As born-again, Spirit-filled believers, Satan can’t get to “God in us.” The reason is because those being referred to hear are a different sort of saint. These are the tribulation saints, who are not born-again in the same way as the church is.
This means that believers of the church age and of the tribulation will have certain fundamental difference to them. This is a pre-tribulation rapture proof.
●At the rapture we get new bodies that will never marry or die. (Matthew 22:30) At the Second Coming, those saved during the tribulation get longevity restored and the curse lifted, but they will marry and will still die in the Millennium.
So if you believe in a post-tribulation rapture, you have to accept that the church will be those who have longevity restored, and still marry. (1 Corinthians 15:52)
Dramatic rapture changes to our bodies:
●Corruption puts on incorruption. ●Dishonour becomes glory. ●Weakness gives way to great power. ●The natural becomes spiritual and supernatural. ●Mortal becomes immortal. ●Our limited knowledge changes to all knowledge and pure wisdom. ●This body of humiliation changes to exaltation. ●This temporal life becomes eternal. ●We become like Him – holy.
The rapture and Israel:
It is vitally important to know that there is an unbreakable connection between God’s plans for Israel and the rapture. The rapture ends the church age and begins the dispensation of Daniel’s seventieth week of years – the tribulation period.
There is not one verse of scripture indicating that Israel in the tribulation is the church. If you try to make it so, you will have endless problems fitting the prophetic scriptures together.
Israel today is effectively a sad “bread-basket of tears” but will be turned to joy and celebration, as they finally fulfil what they were called and chosen for in the beginning.
Isaiah 65:19 “I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in My people; the voice of weeping shall no longer be heard in her nor the voice of crying.”
The speed of the Rapture:
One of the reasons the Bible defines the rapture and the Second Coming so differently is to maintain a dispensation difference, and to warn of the great danger of people falling for the antichrist.
At the rapture of the true church, the Lord descends to snatch and grab believers up into the air and on to heaven at lightning speed. At the rapture believers go immediately to heaven without coming back to this earth for anything, not even to finish their cheesecake.
This is not how it happens at the Second Coming, where our Lord descends slowly as He left, and touches down on the Mount of Olives, from where He goes into Jerusalem. The world will see this event through the media, but not the rapture.
If you mix these up and say, as many do, that there is only one event, you are in danger of receiving the antichrist, because he will walk around Jerusalem where he will proclaim himself to be God. He does not descend to snatch anyone into the air at lightning speed.
If replacement theology or the post-tribulation rapture doctrine is correct, the church replaces Israel and therefore goes through the tribulation period. This is when Israel will be saved en masse. That would mean that the church gets saved in the tribulation en masses! That is insanely illogical.
Will the rapture be a surprise?
It will be to most and won’t be to true believers who are informed watching and ready.
Revelation 3:3 (Headed - message to the dead church)...”If you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I come upon you.”
Matthew 24:43 “If the head of the house had been awake, he would have watched and known what hour the thief would come.”
This is effectively saying: If you wake up I will not come to you as a thief and you will know the time.
Was Noah surprised by the flood? No, but the masses were.
Luke 12:56 Jesus rebuked those for not knowing the signs of the weather in relation to the signs of time of His coming.
Matthew 24:33 “So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near, at the very doors.”
I get so excited about the thought of all the glory that is coming. I can’t wait, but have to. In the mean time set your focus on eternity and not on this world. Make proclamations and decrees and write them out. Make many prayers about it all.
Wonderful things are coming soon!
