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.”
1 Thessalonians 5:6 “Let us not sleep as others do, but watch.”
1 Peter 5:8 “Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”
Matthew 24:43 “Know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into.”
Ephesians 5:13-14 “All things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Awake, you who sleep; arise from the dead, and Messiah will give you light.”
2 Timothy 4:8 “There is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord the righteous Judge, will award to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.”
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 517: April 14th 2020.
The Departynge First!
These are the words of life!
I have shared on some of these things before, but it is so important, it must be more fully explained. As always an erroneous doctrinal belief knocks on to other doctrines as well. We are now at a point in time where these things are of major importance.
And yes that is how the “departynge” is spelt in old English!
2 Thessalonians 2:3 “Let no man deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come, unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition.
The original early Bibles were consistent in their translation of this verse as follows:
2 Thessalonians 2:3 “Let no man deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come, unless the departynge comes first...”
Note how dramatically “departynge” changes the entire meaning. Read the top verse and then the bottom rendition of it again.
Here are the early, original old English Bibles and their use of that verse. Note the consistency:
- Wycliffe Bible (1330), "departynge first"
2. Tyndale Bible (1525/26), "departynge first"
3. Coverdale Bible 1535), "departynge first"
4. Crammer Bible (1539), "departynge first"
5. Beeches Bible (1583), "departing first"
6. Beza Bible (1583), "departing first"
7. Geneva Bible (1608), "departing first" 8. King James Bible (1611) “falling away.”
The 1611 King James Bible, which many claim is the only inspired, totally accurate Bible, which is absolute hogwash, changed “departynge first, to “falling away” from the faith.
The “departynge (departure) is of the course the rapture of the church – how logical!
Note that the word “Day” is capitalised. This is a reference to the entire tribulation period, or if you like, the Second Coming.
“Departynge first” places the rapture before the tribulation period (Day of the Lord)
Bear in mind that you can’t have both opinions. The “falling away from the faith” is not the “departynge first”. It’s one or the other.
Number 8 (above) marked the introduction of error, which has permeated and predominated since then, fuelled by the knock-on effect of the error.
I know all the arguments in favour of “falling away from the faith”, but if any are true, I ask you then, how do you explain the consistency of “departure” in all the early Bibles?
If you are looking for the great falling away from the faith, as a sign, instead of the soon-coming rapture, you will obviously be looking in the wrong place, to say nothing of the contradiction to the verses speaking of a great end-time revival. (See the next edition!)
►I see quite a few reputable Bible teachers are now also teaching on this “departure” instead of “falling away from the faith.” That is just great!
In the types revealed in the feasts, we have now moved from Passover (the cross) to the resurrection. But bear in mind that Passover is also about Israel leaving Egypt (the world), which has enormous prophetic implications.
The group speak of herd mentality:
Many generations of church leaders and Bible teachers have been playing “blind man’s buff.” They have been following the blind man who says he can see, right into a tree.
Herd mentality, especially amongst blind, parrot pastors has joined Catholicism in replacing Passover with Easter. This destroys Bible prophecy albeit symbolically. The seven feasts, in their fulfilment, succinctly plot the major prophetic peaks of the ages.
The feats conceal and reveal the skeleton of all prophecy. Passover, the first of the feasts is the head of the skelton. All the Passover rejecting, Easter loving Christians have beheaded prophecy. No wonder they are running around like headless chickens.
This love of and receiving of paganism (Easter) is the very cause of most of those churches being ignorant of prophecy, with some exceptions.
There are so many churches that won’t touch or teach Bible prophecy, but they will venerate paganism and forever argue useless arguments in favour of their mixture of Babylon into the truth.
Okay, so now we see that the “falling away” is the rapture of the church. That leads to the obvious question, when will this occur?
Imminence is for the wicked:
So, if the departure of the church comes first, it is appropriate to address the error of imminence, which knocks on to other doctrines too.
The presumption behind imminence is that the Lord’s coming for the church at the rapture will occur without any preceding signs and could happen at any time, because “no one knows the time”.
There are numerous preceding signs and forerunners of the coming of the tribulation period. Obviously those signs would also be relevant to a pre-tribulation rapture.
The argument in favour of imminence is based largely on a verse misunderstood:
Matthew 24:36 “Of that day and hour no man knows...but as the days of Noah were so shall the coming of the Son of Man be.”
What people have done is presumed that this verse says “no one knows the time.”
1 Thessalonians 5:2 “You yourselves know that the day of the Lord, so comes as a thief in the night. When they (the world) say ‘peace and safety, then sudden destruction comes upon them as labour pains...”
The thief in the night full of darkness will not know – it is a reference to the wicked.
1 Thessalonians 5:4 “But you brethren are not in darkness that this Day should overtake you as a thief...Let us not sleep as other do, but let us watch and be sober.”
Matthew 24:36-37 “As in the days of Noah, so also will it be at the coming of the Son of Man...They (the wicked) will be eating, drinking, marrying and giving in marriage...and they did not know until the flood came and took them all away.”
Matthew 24:48”But if the evil (wicked) servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming...the master will come on a day when he is not looking.”
If no one knows the time, the following verse is a real problem. How can you look for something that’s unknowable?
Titus 2:13 “Looking for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of our great God and Saviour.”
The thief in the night is wicked and does not know. The believer is not in darkness and does know. It is the wicked servant who says no one knows!
The awakened believer is commanded to “know”, “watch,” “pray” and “look” for the appearing”.
Matthew 24:33 “You also, when you see all these things, know that it is near, at the very doors.”
The word “know” above is in the imperative tense, meaning it is a command, similar to a military command.
The problem with the doctrine of imminence is that it is always, extended to mean, “no one knows the time.” (So don’t bother trying.)
Yes, Acts 1:7 says, “It is not given to you (the disciples) to know times or seasons...” But this is talking to those particular disciples at that time and not to end-time believers generally.
1 John 2:18 “Little children it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even, may antichrist have come, by which we know it is the last hour.”
So, when will the departing take place? Regular readers know my view all too well. It will occur on a Feast of Trumpets, when all the other required signs are in place. But more exciting material on that, not shared before, in coming editions.
Today God’s shofar is sounding an alarm, and ringing bells of urgency. God’s menorah is shining its light on the cross of salvation and its resurrection power. Can you hear the sound, can you see the light? Can you feel and sense the power?
Births X 3:
Pregnancy always leads to birth-pangs. That’s where we are now.
■The church is pregnant with a glorious resurrection body. ■The world is pregnant with the coming antichrist. ■Israel is pregnant with the Millennium.
The resurrection body is coming before the tribulation, the antichrist is coming in the tribulation, the true Christ is coming at the end of the tribulation and the Millennium is coming after the tribulation.
Be thankful and full of praise that you have not been left out in the spiritual cold.
Covid-19 is a birth!
Covid-19 has birthed worldwide mass fear and confusion. Is it of God or of the devil? Confusion is not of God, but is of the devil. But God uses these events caused by the devil for His purposes.
This shaking is leading to repentance for many people. God uses the tests to see who are really His, and who His disciples are.
Bear in mind that this virus is a “birth” of worse things to come in the tribulation period.
►The shaking has started now, before the tribulation. The shaking is for the shakeable. The kingdom of God is unshakable.
The tragedy of the biblical Jews was that they “did not know the time of their visitation”. (Luke 19:44)Today, much of the church and the world do not know what’s going on. They do not know their time of visitation and required repentance.
Did President Trump “divide the land” and cause the virus? (Joel 3:2)
I believe some teachers, the left-over deceived, Revelation 12-sign teachers, and others are teaching and claiming repeatedly that the coronavirus in the US is a result of President Trump dividing the land of Israel, through the “Deal of the Century.”
That is absolutely NOT the case at all! Do not believe it. Dismiss it as short-sighted rubbish.
Daniel 11:39 “He (antichrist) shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god (Satan) which he shall acknowledge and advance its glory; and shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain.”
Joel 3:2 “I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat and I will enter into judgment with them there, on account of My people, My heritage Israel...They have also divided up My land.”
The condemned dividing of the land comes in the tribulation period. Both of these verses above clearly occur in the tribulation period.
If President Trump is responsible for dividing the land and the coronavirus is the result, then why did God not do the same when the land was divided many times before?
If the coronvirus is a result of President Trump dividing the land of Israel, why would God bring this virus on the whole world?
There is another side to dividing the land which most are not aware of because of their blinkers. It’s all about numbers. An undivided Israel would bring all the Palestinian territories refugees and exiles into one united land.
There are an estimated 14 million Palestinians who would instantly become part of Israel. That would make Israel an Islamic state overnight. Do you think God will allow that? You have to be mad in the head! Besides, that is not what the prophetic word reveals at all!
The best way to deal with this is to have separate, divided political entities with their own internal independence, as there is today. There is no other workable solution.
It was the children of Israel themselves who caused the land of Israel to be divided. In disobedience to God, they failed to drive out all the occupying people (Arabs). So now the best solution to prevent Israel from becoming fully Islamic is to create Palestinian territories of autonomy.
Here it is, and note the last sentence:
Numbers 33:50-55 Instructions for the conquest of Canaan: “Moses, speak to the children of Israel and say to them: 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, destroy all their moulded images and demolish all their high places...but if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then it shall be that those who 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.
So, the situation is a bit more complex than people think.
God is legally bound to operate within His own legal framework. You cannot be accused of, or held responsible for something you didn’t do. President Trump’s “Deal of the Century” is null and void, not being implemented. Except for a few issues that are very pro-Israel in the first place.
If anything, President Trump holds a “key of David” in his hands, and not the cause of the coronavirus! (See edition 509 “Beware the key of David.”)
What comes next?
In the midst of plagues, Passover (not Easter) led to the Exodus of the children of Israel, as Pharaoh “let them go.” That led to war as the Egyptian army then changed their mind and pursued them. That led to the supernatural defeat of the Egyptians in the Red Sea. That led Israel to the Promised Land.
Moses commanded Pharaoh to “Let my people go.” He finally did, which is a type of Israel becoming a nation in 1948, even sanctioned by the League of Nations which became the UN. This fulfilled Isaiah 66:8.
Yes, Pharaoh changed his mind and pursued the Jews, right into God’s trap – the Red Sea. This is a type of the UN changing its mind after Israel’s independence in 1948 and becoming a staunch enemy of Israel, pursuing her on every front.
If the UN could only see that their feet are already wet in the modern Red Sea of blood that will befall them in the tribulation period!
So what is next? It is war as Israel enters the God-parted Red Sea, prepared for her as she approaches the God ordained Promised Land of salvation.
At the same time, modern unsaved man is already teetering like the tower, about to fail and fall.
There is a reason why God said the city of Babylon (the world-system), and the tower, will never rise again! The reason is because it was man’s sin-filled attempt to create peace and reach God. That is a type of today’s world trying to reach God with sin intact.
Jeremiah 50:39 “...It (Babylon) shall be inhabited no more forever...”
Jeremiah 51:26 “They shall not take from you (Babylon) one stone for a foundation, but you shall be desolate forever, says the Lord.”
End-time Babylon is the world-system and not the original, cursed and doomed city in Iraq, which will never rise again according to these prophetic verses above.
But end-time Babylon the Great, which is the world, will rise to meet its destruction even as it is trying to do so now.
Isaiah 13:11,20 “I will punish the world for its evil and the wicked for their iniquity...It (Babylon) will never be inhabited, nor will it be settle in from generation to generation, nor will the Arab pitch tents there, nor the shepherds bring their sheep there.”
The tower is about to fall again, it is doomed; it like a thief in the night does not know the hour of its visitation. It – Get out of the way!
In the midst of all these things, the end of our salvation draws nigh. Can you say, “I love you Lord with all my heart and being?” He is pure, pristine, true and exalted, like a glimmering, shining diamond forever, full of light and love.
Our Lord has risen; we will also rise soon to glory. This truth of is so exciting, invigorating and bears witness in our hearts.
If He is risen and is alive – that has profound, consequences for you. It should stop you in your tracks and cause you to fall on your face before Him in total surrender – immediately.
Revelation knowledge, understanding and wisdom is life that leaps off the page, hits you in the heart, and changes you!
In these days of shaking you need to identify where your source of spiritual stability and value is, and treasure those spiritual gems – they are rare, which is why they are of value.
I lay down flat to take this picture of a cheetah in one of our game reserves and blended the tree in.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
