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 524: June 2nd 2020.
Why am I here?
These are the words of life!
Statistics reveal that there is a huge surge in suicides worldwide in these days. For some biblical advice on it: Click HERE.
I wrote this edition in March last year well before the virus or these present troubles hit: “Disorder out of chaos” Click HERE.
What is the purpose of life and why am I here? All the craziness is accelerating. So many things are in upheaval, but in the midst there is available peace beyond measure.
All the psychologists, psychoanalysts, shrinks and bespectacled intellectuals in the world, can’t answer the question: “Why am I here?” But God has the answer and it is right here!
Modern life is like a confining, constricting maze and the pressure is increasing ever day! It’s like a dark cloud is hanging over the world.
At the end of the day it is all going according to revealed prophecy. That should speak volumes to you. God’s Spirit is being poured out and satanic spirits are becoming more entrenched in society, and it’s all heading to a grand, sudden climax!
The fallout is stress, depression, despair, despondency, desperation, discomfort, dejection, discouragement, downheartedness, disquiet and more.
But the fallout can also be peace, calmness, hope, joy, comfort and more.
The inevitability of Bible prophecy:
Firstly, everything that is going crazy now is prophesied in the Bible. God, in His foreknowledge, knew it all and said this is the way it will be. That alone is comforting.
Bible prophecy is inerrant. It has never been wrong. There are a few prophecies that contain a degree of variability and conditionality, but most are cast in stone and will transpire.
Bible prophecy so succinctly reveals the end of man the rebel, going his own way.
“The whole world lies under the power of the evil one.” (1 John 5:19) “Satan deceives the whole world.” (Revelation 12:9)
You must be born again to even see the kingdom of God and that goes equally for the kingdom of the world. The world doesn’t want you to see its god. If you can’t see the true God because He has been removed from society, you can’t see the world’s god either, and you doomed.
Job 12:24-25 “He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, and makes them wander in a pathless wilderness. They grope in the dark without the light, he makes then stagger like a drunken man.”
Unsaved man is equal under the sin of Adam. All man’s works good and bad can’t save you. With a heart full of sin, including all your good sin, you can’t fix the world or anything at all in the kingdom of God, because you will poison it, with your fallen nature.
All the opinions of man are in fact a powerful force of influence, if you are not strong in the Lord, and tragically, few are in these days when it is needed more than ever.
The values of hell are arising in the world and taking root on the elimination of the values of God’s word. New, wicked, behaviour and actions always arise on the acceptance of ‘new’ revolutionary theory, which is disguised and dispensed to the masses by the media.
●The spirit of the world is one with the spirit of evil. It ridicules the things of God, glorifies man and the world-system, and blinds people to sin, righteousness and coming judgement.
●The Spirit of truth reveals God, glorifies Messiah and convicts of sin, righteousness, and judgement.
Jeremiah 10:23 (Amp) “O Lord, I know the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man, even a strong man and man at his best to direct his own steps.”
Like two railway tracks incorrectly laid, with a growing distance between the widths, they soon end up far apart. This is the lot of modern man. He is so far from God, and getting further apart, and he doesn’t even know it.
Life’s big question:
Okay, so, the modern post-God world has created a new godless world, but it is stressed out, afflicted, anxiety-filled, like a freaked out monster of a man, in distress and disquiet.
Modern man sits back and asks – why? What’s it all about? Is it worth carrying on? Why am I here, and in so much anguish? ‘There must be a better way’, he says to himself.
He thinks: “If only I could have some delight, joy, peace, calmness and blessing in my life. If only I could have some assurance that I have some value and worth. Why am I here in this mess”?
The big answer to the question is: We are here because we are destined to ‘drip’ with the abundance of all things glorious, to rule and reign with our Lord forever. We are here because we have a grand purpose, beyond our wildest imagination. We are here being preparing for it all now.
The devil and his people know that, although they won’t say it. They create the opposition that we must face and overcome, making us strong in the process.
We are to overcome all obstacles to our faith. There is nothing laid up for the non-over comer. Great reward is laid up for the victor.
Seeking reward out of selfish ambition is wrong, but seeking reward because it fulfils God’s purpose is right. It is a powerful motivation for service, holiness, endurance.
The church today is on the brink of its greatest victory ever. Many will get shot down and fall by the wayside in the attacks, but many will arise as strong as a lion and do great exploits for our Lord.
Everyone who enters heaven will be extremely grateful, but there will be regret also, as some look back and see that their entrance was not as “abundant” as it could have been. (2 Peter 1:11)
The answer to the big ‘why’ question lies in the stunning, wonderful, prophesied future, which is what we must look to now. (2 Corinthians 4:18)
The soon coming Barabbas:
The same people that cried “Hosanna” to our Lord riding a foal cried “give us Barabbas!”
The name “Barabbas” means ‘son of his father.’ One Bible manuscript indicates that his first name was, “Jesus.” But this Jesus, son of his father, came to kill, steal and destroy. These were the things he was in prison for. These are the very characteristics of Satan.
Nothing has changed! Today the world is again crying, ‘give us Barabbas’. They don’t know that they are crying for the Satan himself. And they will get him with all his lies, killing, stealing and destroying!
The world is trying to re-define God and His truth, on their terms while kicking out the true God and His ways. The spirit of Barabbas, the antichrist himself, with no cross of cleansing is soon to ride into a world crying for him in there thick blindness.
“If you forsake the word of God, you will praise the wicked.” (Proverbs 28:4)
It is Yeshua, the sin free One with the cross of salvation, or Barabbas, the sin-filled one, with no cross and a counterfeit salvation for his followers. Imagine being so blind as to pick Barabbas!
It is Yeshua or Barabbas, the Christ or the antichrist, the white horse rider (Revelation 6:2 )or the white horse Rider. (Revelation 19:11)
People reject the cross of Calvary and God the Judge. They condemn God for bringing judgement. They want a god who does not judge sin. They need a true sinner for that. They end up with the murderer, thief and destroyer, the one who judges God!
There is extreme danger in rejecting God and His word, because you also reject His love and His judgement. You therefore become the supreme judge – doomed!
●Mankind without God is in command of his future and destiny – or so he thinks, but he will run into God the judge of all.
●Man without God is in command of his money and the economy, but he will run into God the judge and the banks and the economy will collapse.
●Man without God is in command of his entertainment, education and information, but he will run into rejection from the true God and become a subject of Satan.
●Man without God is a blind, machine, being driven by hosts of spirits.
Isaiah 30:1-2 “Woe to the rebellious children, says the Lord, who take counsel, but not of Me, and who devise plans but not of My Spirit, that they may add sin to sin. They go down to Egypt (world in type) and have not asked My advice. They strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh (antichrist in type)
Please take note of the gravity of this verse above!
To have a truly godly life in these days you must separate yourself from the spirit of the world and from the cry for Barabbas.
Psalm 94:20 “Shall the throne of iniquity, which devises evil by law, have fellowship with You?”
Why the outpouring of sin and wickedness now?
The current world situation of chaos on so many fronts is interesting. I have maintained for some time now that we are seeing the forerunners to the four runners of the apocalypse. If there are forerunners to the big four horsemen, it would not be surprising that there are forerunners to other tribulation events too.
The Bible speaks of the restrainer of evil being removed so that antichrist can be revealed. The restrainer is the Spirit-filled church and the removal is the rapture. Our presence in this world, with the indwelling Spirit in us, is a form of restraint of evil.
What we are seeing now is the forerunner of the removal of the restrainer. What we are seeing is a very light taste of the release of evil, compared to what is coming in the tribulation!
Here is one of the tribulation riders. We are now seeing the forerunner to this:
Revelation 6:4 “Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another, and there was given to him a great sword.”
When you remove God from society, you remove God’s law which defines what sin is and you become the judge. But it is you who is one with Satan, if not born again! So in fact Satan in you becomes the judge of God, and sin flourishes!
Where we are today is a Mickey Mouse situation compared to what’s coming in the tribulation. If you are not saved and you have any common sense in you, you need to get saved now.
The search for answers:
People now are searching for answers. This means there is a great responsibility on Bible teachers to be right and led by the Spirit. There is also great condemnation on false teachers, prophets, false watchmen, and frauds, and there are many!
It is the false shepherds, false prophets and teachers that talk much about love, but without corresponding correction, judgement and holiness.
The more you set yourself to be in line with God’s truth, word and Spirit, the more meaning and purpose you find to your life. The more you do it, the stronger you become and the more of a bright shining light of wisdom available through you, for other to benefit from.
To be truly, successful with eternal results you must set your heart mind and soul to return to ancient paths. This is where the great keys to the kingdom lie. (Jeremiah 6:16)
Jeremiah 31:21 “Set up signposts, make landmarks, set your heart towards the highway...turn back to these your cities (of truth).”
There are certain ancient keys to spiritual success and answers that only they will unlock.
The ancient keys open the doors to the correct course of your life. The keys of the kingdom lead to the good road of eternal glory.
The more you get into the Bible, led by the Spirit, the more you see how well Satan has deceived the world. We are not called to win the world to a world-like church! We are called to testify against the world and to expose its evil.
We shine Gods light into its dirt, which causes the dirt to flee. Reassuring the world that everything is fine is how to curse it and yourself!
The times they are a changing! This is the season of sudden shocks and you must be prepared to stand strong, even though the time is very short.
Someone said of the astronauts who have just left the earth – ‘Good choice!’ Well, I say of all true believers, we are not astronauts, we are astro-somethings and where we are going shortly comes by our good choice and, you can’t come unless you have the right ticket!
Poor astronauts, they go to a stupid tiny, wonky space station and then they have to come back to a broken, hell-filled earth. We come back to a fixed, holy, pure, godly, glorious earth after seven years in heaven.
Even nature itself is barking with joy, in anticipation of our return and we haven’t even left yet! (Romans 8:18-19)
Beware of finding your answers for life with the masses. The masses become a defined entity, with an illegitimate, stolen authority. They are seldom right!
Beware of finding your purpose for life with the materialistic, money mad preachers of today.
Biblical salvation is the new birth, which comes with purity, holiness, perfection and God’s glory. Satan’s ‘salvation’ is an awakening to his godless ways, and life, with sin and evil entrenched.
- The true Christian has “peace that surpasses understanding”! (Philippians 4:7)
- “There is no peace for the wicked.” (Isaiah 48:22)
- “Wickedness is in the heart of man.” (Genesis 6:5, Jeremiah 17:9)
We are to judge ourselves now so that we will not be judged or condemned with the world.
The majority consensus is a lie. The masses are always blinded by their prejudice and tunnel vision, based on group think and speak.
Isaiah 7:9 “...If you will not believe, you will not be established.”
Isaiah 54:14 “In righteousness you shall be established. You shall be far from oppression and you shall not fear, nor from terror for it will not come near you.”
Today’s watchmen, Bible teachers and counsellors.
I encourage you to read and study the following verses. Know them well!
Joel 3:14 “Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision, for the day of the Lord is near.”
Proverbs 14:25 (Amp) “A true witness delivers souls, but a deceitful witness speaks lies and endangers lives,”
Proverbs 11:14 “Where there is no counsel the people fall; but in the multitude of counsellors (godly) there is safety.”
Isaiah 33:6 “Wisdom and knowledge (of God) will be the stability of your times, and the strength of your salvation. The fear of the Lord is his treasure.”
Genesis 6:3 “My Spirit will not strive with man forever.
►On the subject of the current social unrest and riots, Romans 13 says that the office of the authorities is of God. If an authority messes up, deal with it, but do not disrespect the office of the authorities.
What we are seeing is the rejection of God’s authority structures, which is in itself a rejection of God. This of course, makes way for the acceptance of evil and the antichrist.
It’s not about cops or criminals, or black lives matter or human rights. It’s not about Covid-19, lockdown, economic collapse, or any of these things. It’s about the vehicles for control, preparing for the antichrist to ride onto the stage.
When we see and know these things we know the answer to big question - Why?
When we know why, we rest, and instead of being stressed out. We have peace.
Why are you here? You are here to fulfil God’s call and plan for you and it is a plan of great glory. You cannot live in the peace of God and be fulfilled, if you live for self. Remember that self’s home is the world, and both have been infiltrated by Satan. We are to die to self and the world.
Psalm 18:32 “It s God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect.”
Isaiah 43:7 “Everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him.”
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace, not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
This is a combination of some of my pictures and my semi-abstract art.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
