►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.
3rd July 2020
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 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!
