- Iraq (the home of Babylon) is reported to be lining up to make peace with Israel.
- There will be no talk of, or deal relating to the Temple Mount at this signing.
- Iran and friends threaten missile attack on Israel and the UAE because of their new friendship.

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.
18th September 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Watch the watchmen:
But first: Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s prayer meeting, “The Return” will be held on the Washington Mall, Washington DC, on the 26th September. This day is known as Shabbat Shuvah. Interestingly the Bible reading for the day is, “Return O Israel, to the Lord your God.”(Hosea 14:2-10 Micah 7: 18-20 Joel 2:15-27) It’s all centred on a global call for the church to return to the ways of God, and for Israel’s return to Messiah.
Today is the beginning of Rosh Hashanah / Feast of Trumpets, depending on the sighting of the new moon. ●This is NOT the rapture time and start of the tribulation.
The current peace efforts between Israel and some Arab nations is NOT the final antichrist peace deal - not by any means. What they are is incremental peace efforts.
This is NOT the “peace and safety, then sudden destruction” verse coming about. That verse relates to the Daniel 9:27 peace deal and the tribulation.
But these things collectively are important in that they present a new dawn for the Middle East. The knock-on effects and influence of these peace efforts are causing others to want to jump on the band wagon too.
Because these are such critical and dangerous times, this is a more important time than ever to be led correctly by men of God who are led by the Spirit and have a history of accuracy and stability. There are many amongst the riff raff.
So many wannabe watchmen and teachers are leading people astray with inaccurate, wrong pronouncements. Some are so outrageous! A watchman of the Lord is not one who watches for possibilities. He knows where to look and what to watch for and is led by the Spirit of God, therefore he is right.
I was given some “100% for sure” information in charts and numbers and various things as to why this would be the rapture time – for sure 100%! It didn’t sit right. When checking it out myself nothing added up!
Because a blind, always-wrong watchman says something is a sign; that does not make it so, by any means.
Being wrong destroys your authority and credibility, and damages the prophetic word and the faith of others, especially new believers.
Being wrong on major biblical things means one thing for sure – absolutely: You have not heard from God and you speak your own opinions.
The Spirit led teacher / watchman will have a history of godly stability and is therefore trustworthy.
Discernment is more critical than ever in the face of fast growing deception.
Ezra 3:13 (Temple rebuilt) “The people could not discern the noise of the shout of joy from the noise of the weeping of the people...”
Error becomes an immovable mountain if not dealt with, because it is formed and secured on the pillar of pride.
Spirit led, and inspired knowledge, understanding and wisdom endures and produces godly fruit.
One way to know a false teacher: When brought to correction, they will turn on you because you won’t join them in propping up their pride!
The Spirit of God in your heart is the umpire. He brings peace when you are on the right track. But you need the baptism of the Spirit. If not your umpire is you, yourself.
The condition of the end-time church:
There is a powerful prophetic message for the end-time church hidden in the messages to the seven churches in Revelation 2 & 3. They were seven historic churches. All seven contain truth for us, but prophetically, they also plot the course of church history.
The first three churches, Ephesus, Smyrna and Pergamos speak of the times gone by. The last four plot the course of the end time church and run concurrently. They are Thyatira, representing the Catholic and other orthodox churches. (They are cast into the tribulation) Sardis is the church that has a “name to live but is dead”. They are told that Lord will come upon them as a thief and they won’t know when! This represents the denominational Spirit-less churches. (With a few exceptions) Then comes the glorious church – the church of Philadelphia. They have the key of David, opening the doors to the Jews. (Isaiah 22:22) This church keeps the word and is promised to be kept out of the tribulation. Finally we have the lukewarm church of Laodicea, which is spiritually blind. God “vomits them out of His mouth.” “Laodicea”: Strong’s G2993, “Laodikeia” From two root words: ‘Laos’ = people and ‘Dike’ =Ruling. This is the people ruled” or “people/self opinionated church.
The pictures below show all that remains of Laodicea today. The Spirit of God flew away from this church and God spat them out of His mouth. (Revelation 3:16) The pillars still standing represent truth, but all else is gone.
1 Timothy 3:15 (Amp) “You know how people must conduct themselves in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and stay – the prop and support of the truth.”
So, what we see here is a very powerful and accurate picture of the end-time church. Some of it is the walking dead. Some are a horror of evil. Some are cast into the tribulation, spat out and condemned. And right in the midst is the church who keeps and loves the word and is pro-Israel.
Bear in mind that there is a terrible, tragic church and a glorious, growing powerful church side by side in these days. Don’t get tunnel vision for just one side of the coin.
The Bible speaks of a great end-time revival (the latter rain) in the last days. (Joel 2:23, Hosea 6:3) and in many other verses.
A major prophetic mark of the times is increasing deception in the church. You can’t have increasing deception without increasing deceivers and that’s where the problem lies.
Satan used deception to try to stamp out the early church because he knew it would wreck his kingdom. Now we have the same scenario again. Sometimes you have to be severe in your dealings.
Acts 13:9-11 “Then Saul, also called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit looked intently at him and said, ‘O full of all deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all unrighteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord? And now indeed the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you shall be blind, not seeing the sun for a time, and immediately a dark mist fell upon him...”
It is most important to know prophetic things to come, but also the timing of those things, to avoid deception. You must see with spiritual eyes today.
A Spirit-led and inspired watchman / teacher is always restrained in what he sees and says. He is led by the restrainer.
We are now at the start of the new Hebrew year 5781. It will end and change to 5782 on Rosh Hashanah 2021. That is September 7th - 8th 2021. That’s a very important date!!
This year, 5781 is going to be year like no other. It’s going to be a wild time of stress, strain and pressure. But in the midst there will be islands of peace amongst the pillars of truth.
The good news is that we are on the verge of great revival. We are seeing it in many nations of the east. Of course there will always be churches deteriorating and dying.
Many of those who have gone off into a ditch will repent and return. Many will continue to slip and slide further away.
As we enter the beginning of these wild times, I want to assure you that The Prophetic Scroll will be your place of spiritual stability and rest.
Edition 523: May 26th 2020.
Great Mountain Peaks:
These are the words of life!
I have often stood on top of a high mountain and looked across the range, spotting the peaks towering out of the mist. Mountain peaks speak! They say, “Look at me”!
This edition is a broad, sweeping view across the major peaks of prophecy.
The mountains are always there, they represent stability, strength and beauty. From the mountains came the Law, the Sermon on the Mount, the Olivet discourse, the Ascension, the Transfiguration, and much more.
I’ve identified the progressing, great drama of all time, culminating in these end times, as seen by the prophets of old. Many of the prophesied dramas have come to pass. Many are occurring right now, and some are still ahead.
The best way to look at a fine painting is to stand back away from it, so that you can see the overall picture, not concentrating on all the finer brush strokes.
The unarguable conclusion in all of this is that Bible prophecy is real, true, trustworthy, inerrant, informative, and predictive with 100% accuracy.
What is your measure of truth? We know CNN’s measure is what the world and its god says. The Interfaith movement’s measure is unity. Islam’s measure relates to world domination. The new world order’s measure is control and resulting false peace.
The measure of most people’s truth is what they think, based on group think! It is – Me, myself and I. Me now – I am!
►Those who are spiritually led and wise, have as their measure and strong anchor, the mountain peaks of Bible prophecy.
The mountain peaks are:
●The Law given on Mount Sinai. ●The cross of Calvary. ●The church age born at Pentecost. ●The Rapture of the church, the rewarding of the church, and the marriage feast. ●The salvation of the Jews. ●The seven-year Tribulation and advent of antichrist and the wrath of God. ●The Second Coming of Messiah. ●The Millennium. ●The final new heaven and earth.
The mountain peaks are also echoed in the seven feasts of the Lord and their prophetic fulfilment:
●Passover (The cross). Unleavened bread (Sinless perfection). Firstfruits (Resurrection). (●Pentecost (Church age) (May 31) ●Rosh Hashanah (Rapture Trib start) (Sept 19th 20th) ●Atonement (Wrath of God) (September 28). ●Tabernacles (Second Coming / Millennium) (October 3)
●The great drama is reflected in the seven dispensations through which the world has gone. (Ephesians 1:10, Ephesians 3:2, Hebrews 1:1, Colossians 1:25.)
The great drama moves from:
●Fall of man at Eden to the cross to the resurrection and to re-creation.
●The drama is seen from the Exodus to the Second Exodus, to the Promised Land to the Promised Land of salvation for Israel.
●The drama is seen in the creation of the church to it’s great apostasy in the dark ages, to the failure of the church in its divisions (denominations). ●It is seen in the victory of the church in great evangelism and the ultimate victory of the church. ●It is seen in the broad sweeping view of paradise lost to paradise restored, from Genesis to Revelation.
The major mountain peaks for today are God’s plan for Israel, including their birth as a nation, suddenly, in one day in 1948. (Isaiah 66:8) The restoration of Jerusalem in 1967. The soon coming spiritual birth of Israel after the rapture, and a great worldwide revival.
The mountain peaks are seen in the mounting sin, evil and wickedness of man too:
They are seen from the Flood to Babel, to Rome, to the tribulation, to the Great White Throne judgement of all the wicked dead.
The mountain peaks of sin are also seen in:
●Hell. ●The bottomless pit. ●Hades. ●Sheol. ●The eternal lake of fire. ●Outer darkness. ●Torment. ●The prison of torment. ●The doom of sinners.
All of these events were seen and written down by the prophets of old in the Bible. They have all come to pass literally (except for those awaiting fulfilment), that is the pattern.
The great plan of God:
Bible prophecy must be your primary guiding force and light in these dark, dingy, dangerous days, through to eternal light of life. All the mountain peaks of prophecy collectively, are the plan of God for the ages and show us the way.
The kingdom of God is sin-free. It is holy, healthy, wealthy and well. It always has been and always will be. It is a kingdom of great victory. And it is you, judged, refined and made new, that will be part of this great eternal kingdom.
Did you know that you are great? You may have some rat characteristics in you now, but they are in the outer fleshly life, which is soon to go the way of all rats.
You are a piece of useless dirty rubbish. You are a most valuable, precious, spectacular being. The former is of the flesh unredeemed, and the latter of the Spirit.
That’s God’s plan for you!
The great plan of the devil:
Obviously the satanic forces out there attack the will, word and plans of God. Satan tries to bring in confusion, disruption, lies and error.
Satan is called the “god of this world.” His most effective tool of deception is the voice of the world – the mass media. Today it is becoming a huge mountain peak of evil.
The following paragraph is a compilation of verses relating to the mass media (scribes).) It paints a consistent, incredible, so relevant picture of the media today.
●They spoke against God. ●Woe to the scribes, full of dead men’s bones, you shut up the kingdom of heaven for men and neither do you enter. ●The scribes were indignant at the wonderful things the Lord did therefore they sought to kill Him. ●The Lord sent warnings to them by His messengers, but they despised the warning and scoffed at the prophets, until the wrath of God arose with no remedy. ●Look at the false pen of the scribe, they have rejected the word of the Lord, therefore they have no wisdom. ●The Lord has shut their eyes so that they do not understand. ●They do not speak aright, they went their own way. ●Truth has been cut from their mouth. ●Truth has fallen in the street.
Here are some of the verses I’ve used for the paragraph above:
Jeremiah 7:28, 8:6-9, Isaiah 44:18, Isaiah 59:14, Matthew 21:15, 23:13, 27, Luke 22:2 Psalm 78:19, 2 Chronicles 36:16, Proverbs 17:15
The mass-media will soon be caught in their own traps! - Watch and see.
The prognosis for the world is not good, but the Bible said exactly that numerous times, 4000 years ago, and then 2000 years ago, so what’s new! Of course that really upsets people who have and are finding their lives in the world.
We are just starting to enter extreme “perilous times” (2 Timothy 3:1). Interestingly the original word for “perilous times” is Strong’s G5467, meaning: “Fierce, harsh, savage times of stress.
The broad overview of the mountain peaks shows the failure of man to create a world of peace and victory. We are now on the brink of the greatest failure of man and his world ever. The cause is the incarnation of pride, rebellion, and failure to repent.
►We are on the brink of the great victory of the God-man – the true church.
Mountain peaks of deception:
The greatest end-time sign our Lord warned against was deception (Matthew24:34)
Did you know that the Bible speaks of truth and error travelling together.
There are two white horse riders, two lions, two lambs, two princes, two kings, two kingdoms, two crowned rulers, two Lords. Two brides, two raised from the dead, two banquets, two bloodlines.
You need to dig into these “mountains” to see truth and deception side by side.
One of the great mountain peaks of deception unfortunately is right in the church. It is the host of false prophets, false teachers, blinded in their pride. The most damaging being false prophecy and teaching relating to Israel.
In these end times the Bible speaks of the “Lord’s watchmen seeing eye to eye” as Israel is regathered. (Isaiah 52:8) At the same time, massive deception is striking the church, through false watchmen and teachers, forever getting it wrong.
The mountain peak called Israel:
Whatever Israel does, knowingly or not, it can’t assimilate into the new world order. God has ordained it to be so:
Numbers 23:9 “From the hills, I behold him, (Israel) a people dwelling alone, not reckoning itself among the nations.”
You see, Israel is a mountain peak hidden in the mist. But the mist is clearing. Many are awakening to God’s incredible plan for the close of the ages, and it’s all happening now. What a privilege we have to see it, and become part of it. Thank you Lord!
We are on the verge of great miracles occurring for Israel. Something is about to transpire, suddenly that will cause them to see, recognise and welcome their Messiah.
Don’t you think it’s interesting that the “sign” spoken of below, causes Jews to become evangelists to the Gentiles?
Isaiah 66:19 “I will set a sign among them (Jews)...they shall declare My glory among the Gentiles.”
Isaiah 66:8 “Who has heard of such a thing, shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once?”
Zechariah 3:9 “...I will remove the iniquity of that land (Israel) in one day.”
So, what could this “sign” be that causes such an awakening amongst the Jews? It can only be the rapture of the church, because evangelism is the duty of the church – now missing.
It’s because of the time period we are in prophetically, that everything is important and is adding up to paint a clear picture.
The big reason for the plagues of Egypt was because Pharaoh would not initially “let My people go.” Now we are faced with the coming of the same plagues, but now spoken of in the Revelation, and the reason is the same.
The world must get its hands off Israel.
The mountain peaks that were hidden in the mist are now emerging, to take part in the final role.
The new normal:
Many churches are prophesying that all these virus troubles will go away and we can return to normal. They want to go back to normal where ministers can fleece their flock, ignore the mass murder of the unborn, support the redefining of marriage and support the moral decay, and big sin of the world, and come against God’s plans for Israel.
What does the new normal look like: For the Christian the new normal is a repentant normal! That would be mainly repentance for accommodating the big sins of the world and being silent on them.
For the unsaved, the new normal is a life of continued, worsening sin and degeneration, pushing the limits of sin as if there is no God. God has held back until now, but now He answers with judgement.
The world’s view of wanting to return to normal, or the way things were is in fact nothing but defiance of God!
Acts 17:30 “These times of ignorance, God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent.” (Acts 14:16)
There is always safety in repentance, and danger in refusing to.
The mountain of temptation:
There is some significance to the temptation of our Lord on a mountain peak by the devil. Satan offered our Lord food, drink and all the material wealth of the world, which were his to give to Yeshua. Our Lord declined and rebuked Satan.
Far too many prancing preaches offering their flock all the materialism of the world. They are teaching their people to “find their lives in the world” (Matthew 10:39)
They are teaching their flock to glorify the flesh rather than crucify it.
Of course there is nothing wrong with material possessions, as long as it’s all kept in subservience to the cross.
It is the pride of life that motivates many of these preachers. (1 John 2:16)
The non-negotiable God:
There are many things that we can say are not cast in stone for us, in a legalistic manner. God’s will allows us to have much flexibility in what we do. But there are some things, especially the bigger issues of life that are not variable and are dogmatic.
Beware, our loving gentle Lamb is also the Lion of the tribe of Judah (Jews), and He is starting to roar.
On many occasions, sometimes on foot, I have looked at close range into the eyes of a lion, out in the wilds. I tell you this: A lion’s roar takes your breath away, but looking into its eyes at close quarters is thrilling, shocking and terrifying. You can see its soul! You immediately start questioning your salvation!
There is also something wonderful and terrifying about the walk of a lion in the wild. He just goes where he wants. His walk is a swaggering, strutting march! His walk is so confident its frightening!
There is something about that roar, those eyes and that walk! You don’t negotiate with them unless your name is Daniel!
Our Lord is a Gentle Giant. He is a Lamb, but He is a Lamb that roars, bites and devours too, if you get on the wrong side of Him and you have pushed Him to the limits of forgiveness.
He is a Lamb whose name is Lion!
Hosea 11:10 “They shall walk after the Lord. He will roar like a lion. When He roars then His sons shall come trembling from the west.”
Of course He is no Lion to His own. He is our God, our Father, out Friend and our Lover. But there must still be in us an awareness of His awesomeness and an understanding of His ways with a world running low on grace.
We are absolutely blessed, safe, secure, accepted and loved in the fear of the Lion!
2 Peter 3:11-12 “Since all these things will be dissolved what manner of persons ought you to be looking for and hastening the coming of the Lord”.
What sort of person are you? Are you preparing yourself in holiness and godliness, looking for the coming of God?
Possibly the corona virus will gradually dissipate and disappear on its own. People will be happy and return to their despicable normal. Possibly a vaccine will be discovered and people will rejoice worshipping their virus-saviour and return to their despicable normal. These scenarios will not divert our Lord. They will result in new terrors of judgement.
The winning scenario: Masses will repent and get saved (as they are already). Many casual Christians will return to the Lord like a prodigal with his pants on fire. All the stupid people of the world will continue in their despicable ways and judgement will fall on their heads. It is impossible for unsaved man to escape coming judgement.
The greatest mountain peak of prophecy seen by the patriarchs, the prophets, the apostles and our Lord Himself and revealed in the Old Covenant and New is the wonderful end for all true believers.
The conclusion in all of this is that your life is not on some haphazard journey. It is all a part of the grand prophetic scheme of things. You can trust Bible prophecy supremely.
Oh yes, did I say it? The rapture is very near!!
This is a mix of some of my pictures of a white rhino and baobab trees.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
