- 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 509: February 18th 2020.
Beware the Key of David!
These are words of life!
The image above is of the “Cyrus Cylinder” unearthed in the ruins of Babylon. It contains the decree permitting freedom for the children of Israel to return to their land.
Isaiah 22:21-22 “...He shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and to the house of Judah. The key of the house of David I will lay on his shoulders; so he shall open and no one shall shut, and shall shut and no one shall open.”
Revelation 3:7 “...These things says He who is holy, He who is true, He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts and He who shuts and no one opens.”
The key of David unlocks and opens doors and locks doors that no one can open. Beware; what God slams shut and locks, is impossible to open!
This amazing key of David is in God’s hands, but as we see in the verses above, He gives it to those who meet specific conditions.
What’s the key of David all about?
If we look at the verse above in Isaiah, we see that the key relates to those who have a heart for God’s will, work with the Jews (Judah), and Jerusalem. Those who have, a relationship and attitude like that of a father, to the Israel and Jerusalem have God’s key of David.
It is the church at Philadelphia who are given this key. (Revelation 3:7)
This powerful key locks out all those who stand against God’s will for Israel, which includes the churches of replacement theology and all other enemies of God’s plans for Israel.
Now, let’s look at some amazing facts about the king of Persia – Cyrus and his situation, in type relating to President Trump of the USA.
We will see how accurately the key of David applies.
I must warn firstly that this is application of Bible verses. When we apply aspects of the Bible to modern places, names or things, we must never be too dogmatic and never take the application beyond the initial surface meaning.
There is often amazing prophetic insight, in type and application. The Spirit of God must lead you.
Cyrus has a few startling parallel applications, in type to President Trump. Much has already been written on the subject, but I want to delve a bit deeper – for your benefit.
►The name “Cyrus” in the Bible is Strong’s H3566. Meaning: “Posses the furnace.” This is most certainly a strange and insightful name-meaning as we will see.
It was Cyrus who ended the Babylonian captivity of the Jews, releasing them from that furnace of affliction, to go back to their land and to rebuild the temple. In a sense, Cyrus possessed the furnace and could have kept who he wanted in it, or release them from it.
Bear in mind that Babylon is a type of the world-system. Today, the nations of the world are trying to hold Israel back, unjustly condemning her at every turn. If Israel does not fulfil God’s plans, willingly or not, they will come into the furnace of affliction again.
So, anyone coming against God’s will and plan has done themselves the great disservice of slamming and locking their own doors shut. They will be responsible for Israel’s further suffering. They themselves will be locked into a furnace soon to come!
Anyone who is with God’s plans for Israel, has the doors open and no one can shut them. In this case President Trump possesses the furnace and is leading Israel away from it!
There is another frightening aspect to the one who “possesses the furnace”. It could well be an application to the furnace which is the atom bomb - the furnace of fiery war! These things are in the hands of President Trump. He has the nuclear key, or code, the key to the nuclear furnace!
Modern day Persia – Iran is also seeking the nuclear furnace, and wants to destroy Israel, which will soon lead to war.
Isaiah 48:10-11 (Headed – Israel refined for God’s glory.) “For My name’s sake, I will defer My anger, and for My praise, I will restrain it from you, so that I do not cut you off. Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction...I will not give My glory to another.”
Isaiah 45:1-4 (Headed: Cyrus, God’s instrument.) “Thus says the Lord to His anointed, to Cyrus whose right hand I have held, to subdue nations before him and loose the armour of kings. To open before him the double doors, so that the gates will not shut. I will go before you and make the crooked places straight...I will give you the treasures of darkness (oil &gas) and the hidden riches of the secret places, that you may know that I the Lord, who calls you by your name, am the God of Israel. For Jacob My servant’s sake, and Israel, My elect, I have even called you by your name. I have named you though you have not known Me.”
Isaiah 44:28 “He (God) says of Cyrus, He is My shepherd, and He shall perform all My pleasure, even saying to Jerusalem, ‘You shall be built,’ and to the temple, ‘Your foundation shall be laid.’”
Cyrus was called “Messiah” and “Shepherd”, and was called to “Perform My desire”.
Bear in mind that Cyrus was not a godly man, but God chose to use him. That’s His choice because He is God and we are not and He knows things we don’t!
At the end of the original Babylonian captivity, Cyrus issued a decree, freeing the Jews. We are now in the same situation, with President Trump freeing Israel in many ways to be independent of the dictates of the world, and to fulfil God’s plans.
The Cyrus Cylinder 539 BC:
The Cyrus decree is forever recorded on the Cyrus Cylinder.
The Cyrus decree also removed the worship of false gods like Marduk, the patron god of Babylon. Marduk means “sun god” and his star is called “Nibiru,” who was the organiser of the constellations of stars. Everything to do with Nibiru is cursed. (This should be familiar to many of you!)
What Cyrus did was fulfil God’s will, giving him the key to the double doors of prosperity and much more. What Cyrus did in a way fulfilled his own name. He possessed the furnace and could have made things much worse for the children of Israel, but he led then away from the furnace.
Tragically, we know that Israel will fall for the great antichrist deceiver, and will again go through another Holocaust, before finally being totally free from the furnace!
Cyrus, king of Persia, modern day Iran, in fact had the key of David which opened the double doors. Iran today is forever locked out, by the same key! Europe today is locked out of God’s full blessing by the same key!
Meaning of the name Donald Trump:
Interestingly the name “Donald” means “Ruler of the world.” (Look it up if you don’t believe me.)
His middle name is John. This name means “God is gracious.”
The name “Trump” means “drum” or in biblical terms, means “trumpet”. Other meanings include: “To get the better of.” One rendition of the name is “Triumph.”
There is a mathematical gematria calculation out there identifying Donald Trump as “a son of David.” I think that is interesting when combined with the other meanings, but I would not place much emphasis on that alone.
►I am in no way promoting or suggesting that anyone vote for this person or that. It’s your choice. I am simply pointing out the biblical types and applications involved.
The mountains have eyes, ears and a key!
The hills are alive with sound of God’s music!
The incredible, unique prophecy of Ezekiel 36 is strange but gloriously true. It is a prophecy from the mouth of God Himself to no man. It is a most startling affirmation and demonstration of the key of David at work, buried in the ground of the mountains of Israel!
What follows is a summary of the whole chapter, I’ve put together for you benefit.
In this amazing prophecy we see God prophesying to the mountains, the hills, the valley and rivers of Israel. The area God is speaking to is the heights and valleys known as Judah and Samaria as well as the Golan Heights. These areas are Palestinian occupied territories (West Bank).
As God speaks, the land consumes the words, devours, ingests and absorbs them, and grows and rises in strength, thriving, prospering and blooming.
“Mountains, here the word of the Lord,” says God!
These mountains of Israel are now pregnant with the word of the Lord. The trumpet of God’s prophetic word is now sounding deep inside the mountains. If you go there and put your ear to the ground and listen carefully, you will hear the trumpets. (Do it quickly otherwise men in white coats will come and take you away to the funny farm!)
In Ezekiel 36:7 God says that He has lifted up His hand against the nations that try to capture this part of Israel. He has made a formal oath, a promise and pledge that He shall bring shame on them. He will shut and lock those nations out of His presence forever.
The people of the nations, the talkers and slanderers (UN) took these areas as plunder for themselves and caused the nations to mock Israel. (Ezekiel 36:3) They took the land with whole-hearted joy and spiteful minds. (Ezekiel 36:5) The Lord is angered because the enemies have caused Israel to bear the shame of the nations. (Ezekiel 36:6)
“But, O mountains of Israel, you shall shoot forth your branches and yield fruit to My people Israel, for they (Jews) are about to come (home). For indeed I am for you, (land) you are about to be tilled and sown with all the house of Israel inhabiting the land. It will be better than at the beginning”. (Ezekiel 36:8-11)
But Israel defiled the land, therefore God poured out His fury upon them and scattered them. But God will restore them, not for their own sake, but for His holy names sake, which He will sanctify before the nations. (Ezekiel 36:12, 22-23)
God will sprinkle clean water on them and give them a new heart and put His Spirit in them. (Ezekiel 36:25)Then they will dwell in the land given to them by the fathers and they shall be God’s people. God will multiply the produce of the land. (Ezekiel 36:28-30)
“From the day that I cleanse you from your iniquities, I will also enable you to dwell in the cities and rebuild the ruins...This land has become like the Garden of Eden...Then all the nations left all around will know that I am the Lord.” (Ezekiel 36:35)
So, now, we have God’s will and plan spoken directly by Him to the mountains, hills and heights of Israel (Judah and Samaria). We have God’s word planted in the soil, so to speak.
But what is really planted in the soil of Israel is the key of David.
Nations, leaders, presidents, prime ministers, kings and others, do you see the truth in Ezekiel 36? Do you see that Israel is untouchable by you? Europe – Europa, goddess of the devil, do you see that your way for Israel, is totally doomed? Do you see that God’s way is the opposite of yours? You have locked yourselves out in shame!
Nations of the world, let me inform you that God’s prophetic trumpet, His key of David, His word for Israel, is alive, in those mountains, stirring, rousing, agitating, ready to perform the world’s most shocking acts. This great, powerful word has been buried in those mountains for over 2000 years. You have been warned!
By the way, immediately after Ezekiel 36 comes 37, 38 and 39. This shows the prophecy of Israel’s “dry bones” coming to life, and 38 and 39 is the great war of the world, Gog and Magog against Israel, and her ally, God, being the ultimate victors!
They just can’t see the golden key of David!
Anti-Israel nations of the world, the tragedy is that you can’t see the key of David. You have too much cow dung in your eyes, mouth and minds.
Malachi 2:2-3 (To corrupt priests) “If you will not hear and take to heart, to give glory to My name, says the Lord, I will curse your blessings...I will spread dung on your faces...”
Job 18:5-7 “The light of the wicked indeed goes out, and the flame of his fire does not shine...The steps of his strength are shortened, and his own counsel casts him down.” (The key locks them out)
Job 11:20 “The eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope – loss of life!”
Isaiah 44:18-20 “They do not know nor understand; for He has shut their eyes, so they cannot see, and their hearts so they cannot understand...They feed on ashes; a deceived heart has turned them aside; and they cannot deliver their soul, nor say, ‘is there a lie in my right hand?’”
Dear believer, do you have the great lie of the world in your hand, or the key of David? You had better check!
So, what about President Trump dividing the land of Israel?
Under the” Deal of the Century”, President Trump has given Israel the green light to annex the so-called occupied territories. Only a section east of East Jerusalem, outside of official Jerusalem, is earmarked for a Palestinian capital. All of Jerusalem is recognised as the eternal capital of Israel. Golan and others are returned to Israel. Israel keeps the Jordan valley and only certain areas become consolidated as new Palestinian land. Bear in mind that Israel was divided long ago by the British.
This “Deal of the Century” is null and void anyway, until ratified and agreed by all parties. What is going ahead is the annexation of so-called Palestinian land to Israel.
I would not call any of this dividing the land and city in defiance of God. Yes, I’m aware that there are a lot of teachers and preachers screaming that this peace deal is now the antichrist seven-year peace covenant. I say to them – hogwash!
I am well aware that things can change fast, but right now, President Trump has in his hands the key of David and not the key of the antichrist.
In the final analysis, the land and city will be divided, by the antichrist, but this is not it.
Those of Europe, most Arab nations and the Palestinians, trying to steal the land God gave to Israel; it’s just like stealing a car with a hidden tracking device inside. Not very clever!
The big take-away:
The key of David is a fatherly caring attitude to God’s will and plans for Israel, the Jews and Jerusalem. This unlocks doors of blessing that cannot be shut. Those on the other side are locked out by the same key and cannot get in.
Those believers, who have the key of David, will also be locked out of the tribulation period and will be made a “pillar in the temple of God” in the New Jerusalem. (Revelation 3:10-12)
You too can and must hold your own key of David.
The key of David unlocks much more than the blessing that come to those who bless Israel. Its glorious benefits open many other doors of great blessing and security for you in these unstable days, and lock out many attacks and curses of the enemy.

Shalom and grow in His Grace!
