|This ministry has a distinct kingdom vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for Israel and the church. My position is pre-trib! I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share with you the great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God, to bless Israel and her people and the kingdom of God.|

●With more and more Covid vaccines being developed, we could be close to the objective of the World Health Organisation of getting the whole vaccinated! This brings up all the issues of massive control and the coming of the mark system. The control aspect will only come into force in the tribulation period, but we are seeing what could turn out to be the forerunner of it all.
●The next of the major forerunners still “run” is war. It is coming soon.
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.

Most people, since the invention of the pop-up toaster want their Christianity the same way, which is instant, pop-up results without going through the discipleship and maturing process, and without having the carpet pulled out from under them, defeating their self-life, ego and dethroning their pride.
The ministry office of the evangelist throws the seed out and it brings the people in to the kingdom. But you can’t live there. You need to move on to the ministry of the teacher / pastor, and become a disciple, which is much more than a convert.
This is where you have to sit down, shut up and be taught the deeper things of God. You need to move from milk to meat. This is where you pay the price, and it costs you everything you are.
The problem is that either the modern teacher is too shallow and spineless, or the recipient is, and he just doesn’t want to pay any price at all.
Matthew 28:19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations...teaching them all things I have commanded.”
Luke 9:23 “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me.”
Luke 14:33 “Whoever of you does not forsake all that he has, cannot be My disciple.”
The original word for “Disciple” is Strong’s G3101, ‘Mathetes’. Meanings: Subjected pupil learner.
We could rightly say that the word means to be subjected under the authority of another, for instruction, correction, and training in righteousness.
The Lord makes converts and then disciples of those converts. Being a subjected pupil learner takes time and it takes sacrifice. Note the conditions for discipleship in the verses above. They are foreign to today’s pop-up superficial, clown-like Christian.
The image below is a compilation I put together of various artist impressions of the disciples. (I will share the other six soon) Bear in mind that these men gave their lives to serve our Lord and finally were all martyred in horrific manners, except for John. I have to say that the renaissance artists captured perfectly the drama and emotion of it all. (Brings tears to my eyes.)
The Prophetic Scroll has always endeavoured to bring you a mix of exciting prophetic material, relevant to today, as well as with a lot of “hard sayings” thrown in, for your edification and growth. “Consider both the goodness and severity of God”, says the Bible.
But, you see, too many want their ears tickled and are only interested in flashy, shouty, stage-stomping entertainment with a few pretty verses thrown in. And of course bright lights and sound effects too - to manipulate the masses.
Main stream Christianity is for those going with the flow. Present worldly Christianity is their measure. True Bible-based Christianity is for those going against the flow, with their ‘sail’ tacking into the wind!
A yacht can go fast with the flow of the wind with its spinnaker up. But it can also move forward into the wind with the sail set correctly. Evangelism is fast, discipleship is slow.
The winds of the world are blowing towards hell, and many lukewarm, compromised, half-baked, partly counterfeit churches too.
Those with the wind in their face are few in number. It’s always been that way. But remember the ultimate, great assessment by our Lord is coming up. No one will escape it.
Is the wind at the back of your head as you go with the flow, or in your face? Oooo – it’s so nice and cool with the wind in your face as you go forward with our Lord at the helm.
I once heard an ill-equipped minister, Rev, Harry Halfbaked, who produced a great many Christian failures (that he thought were a success) teach graduating ministers how to evangelise. He used all the methods of self promotion, self exaltation, self-esteem and worldly ways of promotion, all designed to manipulate and entertain the masses.
The ministry of the cross, brokenness and repentance were totally foreign, as they are in so many churches today.
Those who have cut their spiritual teeth on the old-school teachers and the hard sayings of hell-fire and brimstone preachers of old, or no-compromise teachers are the ones who grow into stable Christians. The big thing is to have the carpet pulled out from under you early in your walk.
If not you will always be a squirmy half dead Christian living in a cloud-cuckoo – never never land, in the realm of the half-baked wishy-washies.
Don’t be afraid to be hard on yourself, particularly in these days. Don’t be afraid of the cross, it is the only way to glory. Surrender and submit to the leading of the Spirit and follow His prompting.
There is a fatal satanic attraction in the error of superficiality. When it manifests it’s like glue, and the majority get stuck in the rut. Don’t mess with it!
No one will ever approach God on their own terms! Even though there is little time left, God will not compromise on the character of His disciples.
Edition 527: June 23rd 2020.
Man the god.
These are the words of life!
The title picture above, by Michelangelo originally shows God on the right reaching down to man. I’ve switched the order. Man is now enthroned, reaching down to Him!
Man as god is up against God in man.
Lucifer tried to exalt himself above God and was cast down to the earth to weaken the nations (pre-adamic). (Isaiah 14:12) Adam was told by Satan that he “could be as God.” (Genesis 3:5) But he ended up as a god, and he was cast out of Eden into a now cursed world.
The real God-man is the one who is a new creation born-again of God, set apart, seated in heavenly places and made the righteousness of God with a divine nature. He is more than a conqueror and a joint heir of all things with God.
The God-man is a walking temple of the Holy Spirit. This is our magnificent position in Messiah and in His kingdom.
We have been made “alive with Messiah” and are “complete in Him.”
But to get the fullness of Christian experience, we need to take up our cross and die daily. We must lose our soul life to find rewarding spiritual life. We must count all things as loss for the excellence of Messiah in us. We must decrease allowing Him to increase, and we must let His death to work in us. (Matthew 10:39, Philippians 3:8, John 3:30, 2 Corinthians 4:12)
We become full of His wisdom when our self-orientated wisdom is defeated and broken. We must see ourselves as unworthy, yet of immense value in Him and in His kingdom.
Our position in Him comes exclusively by Him and through the new-birth. The main characteristic or fruit is an inner purity and holiness, which then works from the inside, to manifest in the soul and flesh. Our position comes by birth and not by works of any sort.
Our position in Messiah makes us untouchable, undefeatable, full of victory, simply because we have already arrived! Oh yes we have. And that’s why the world and its god-man hate us.
The works of man as god:
Today we are seeing the futile manifestation of man as god driven by a satanic monkey on his back.
It’s all aimed at destroying the works of the true God and the true God-man - the born-again Christian.
Dethrone, defund or remove the authority of God and the biblically “terror to the wicked” of the cops (Romans 13:3) is to remove a part of God (in the institution) from society It removes biblical truth from society, and it takes the lid of the wickedness of man, making them a terror!
Weakening the cops is weakening God’s influence in the land and strengthening the reign of the sin-man, driven by Satan.
Man then becomes the illegitimate, wicked authority. He is replacing God and His word with Satan and his word, and preparing the way for the antichrist.
Noah yelled warnings at the wicked and evil world. They ignored them and mocked him. The flood of God’s judgment came and destroyed them. At the end, the ark landed on Mount Ararat. This word means: “The curse is reversed.” - It was so, after judgement!
Today modern Noah stands and yells for the world to repent. “Judgement is coming soon, he screams! What will be the outcome? Tragically, just the same, except it won’t be a flood of water this time; and yes it will end in the curse being reversed as the tribulation saints go into the Millennium, but to the world who ignored the warning – goodbye and good luck - you will need it!
The unsaved world today, in its sin and evil is speaking. It is telling “Noah” to shut up. It is announcing its own soon coming judgement!
Modern John the baptiser is also out there with the same message! He is saying to any who have ears to hear: “Make straight for the way of the Lord.” He is announcing to the church, the soon coming Messiah. Are they listening? Many are, but many are wilfully deaf and blind.
The command ahead of the coming of the Lord is “repent.”
●It’s just about time modern world, for you to “drown” in your judgement like the people of Noah’s day. ●It’s just about time modern Babel to topple and tumble, never to rise again! ●It’s just about time modern Sodom and Gomorrah to burn to the ground in a pile of ashes. ●It’s just about time modern Jericho to shake, rock and roll and all fall down, like a harrowing Humpty.
World – you will meet your maker who is coming - ready or not, and you are on the wrong side of grace! Right now grace still extends a hand of eternal friendship to you. The wise will take it.
All the world’s troubles are a great opportunity to see its heart and die to the world, and grow strong in the Lord and His kingdom. You can’t fix the world – don’t bother trying.
Today people are aiming at outer space. Man on the moon again, man on Mars and anywhere else in space, is the desire. But anywhere man goes, he takes sin with him. Man on the moon and Mars simply pollutes them with the sin of fallen Adam.
Exalting one’s self above God and rebellion to God is provably the most stupid thing anyone could do. It has never worked and always failed monumentally.
Man thinks he can be as God exalted and enthroned as God but without going God’s way. “Babylon the great” (the entire end-time world system) is the total summary of man trying to be God.
Interestingly the words Babel and Babylon are the same and mean “confusion”. But it is derived from the name in cuneiform script, “Bab-ili” which means the “gateway or bridge to God.” This is exactly what the Babylonians wanted to do with their tower. They wanted to build a bridge to God.
They wanted to reach God. But they took with them their sin, which was in their hearts and God destroyed them, the tower and the city.
That is what’s coming again, and very soon too!
Today we have the world trying to build a new world of peace - a clean, green, socialist world, with everyone equal. We have people trying to clone humans, modify their genetics and create hybrids and artificial intelligence mixed with human DNA. Man is trying to make a new man – a god-man.
But man’s new man and all his attempts are full of sin and unredeemed blood – all hell bound, all destruction bound, just like Babel.
The world is not getting better. It is in sharp decline; devolution is the order of the day. The youth of the world are being dumbed-down in this post-God era. The youth are dying the death of the godless, inflicted on them. They have been forever wrecked by their ‘clever’, godless, idiotic adults. (With some wonderful exceptions).
The preset evil world wants to break down individual thinking and create mass group-think and ex-God group-education.
But like a huge tragic army marching on to hell, commanded by Satan, in camouflage gear, they are off on their terrible journey, in step to the booming beat of a big bass drum echoing ominously through the universe.
The world wants equality for everyone. But it is an equality measured against its sin-filled, low, base-level of unrepented, repeated humanistic failure.
Equality must get rid of freedom! Think about that simple little yet profound sentence. Equality always has to be created and forced upon people. People are then no longer free to get rich from their labour, or free to be lazy slobs.
In one single sentence Yeshua destroyed the entire philosophy and practice of economic socialism or equality. He said: “The poor you will have with you always.” (Mark 14:7) Yes of course you can help the poor, but that is always from a voluntary basis and not a state instituted economic order.
The removal of the gospel from modern society is proportionate to the moral collapse, devolution and decline of society. The removal of the Bible from society has led it to nightmare captivity!
People want blessing in their choices, because their choice is their government-ordained human right. They want blessing in their sin and support of sin. They want blessing in their lives as rebels to God. So, they redefine sin and remove it from society. No sir; it doesn’t work like that! If you want blessing on your life, you get rid of sin and change your ways.
Psalm 37:12-15 “The wicked plots against the just, and gnashes at him with his teeth. The Lord laughs at him, for He sees that his day is coming...Their sword shall enter their own heart.”
Psalm 51:5 “Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me.”
The only answer to mans problems is to die and be born again. That is the way of the word and the way to eternal glorious new life. That is the way to victory.
God’s word and it’s intolerance of sin is becoming more offensive to modern man as he becomes more sinful and tries to overthrow God. As people reject the authority of God they blindly and automatically become slaves of sin and its god.
Psalm 36:1-4 “There is no fear of God before the wicked. He flatters himself in his own eyes...The word of his mouth are wickedness and deceit...He sets himself in a way that is not good...He does not abhor evil.”
1 Samuel 2:9 (Amp) “The Lord will guard and protect the steps of His saints. The wicked shall be silent and perish in darkness. By (human) strength no man shall prevail.”
The only place of no injustice is in the kingdom of God. If you could create a world of no racism or violence or sickness, you would still go to hell, because you have not removed your sin.
If you can erase or change history your points of reference are gone and you can easily be manipulated with a “new” history that is far from the truth.
Blinded four times:
The Bible reveals four spiritual blindings. These relate to people with eyes to see but they are blind to the spiritual realm, its issues, the kingdom of God and the kingdom of the world.
God blinds man trying to see independently of Him, and in rebellion to Him, Satan blinds man to God, and personal wilful pride blinds man. Curses always blind man to their origins.
●Blinded by God. (2 Thessalonians 2:11, Deuteronomy 28:28) ●Blinded by Satan (2 Corinthians 4:3-4) ●Blinded by your own wilful blindness. (Zechariah 7:11, Jeremiah 5:21) ●Blinded by a curse. (Psalm 109:17, Deuteronomy 27:18)
Sometimes these blindings run concurrently and sometimes only one at a time. Either way if you are blinded by any of these you are grave, great danger. You are in far greater danger than you can ever imagine, especially at this point in time on the prophetic calendar.
It may come as a shock, but I tell you that most people today are blind in some areas and they don’t need to be, if they meet the godly conditions.
Can you see God’s agenda with Israel? Can you see the world’s agenda? Can you see great revival coming? Can you see the coming judgement? Can you see the need for repentance?
The tragedy with most of these blindings is that the victims don’t even know that they are blind. Their conscience is seared and they are deluded.
John 3:19 “This is the condemnation, that light has come into the world and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”
This means, people love blindness!
The biggest, universal cause of blindness is pride. That is so clearly seen in the proud false teachers in the church today. It’s a repeating pattern.
Proverbs 1:28-29 “Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; they will seek Me diligently, but will not find Me, because they hated knowledge (of God) and did not chose the fear of the Lord.”
Death is the great divider and decider. It is the great judge of right and wrong. Death lands you in judgement like it or not, with no place to hide.
But we as believers can and must die to self now, and partake in that dividing and deciding even now. We must judge ourselves in line with the word so that we won’t be judged. (1 Corinthians 11:31) This is a great privilege.
These end-times are creating faith and fear, to say nothing of excitement. Those who know our Lord grow in faith and strength. Those who don’t will grow in fear and then criticise God, adding to their problems.
Humility and brokenness makes us equal – dead to self. It brings us down to the same common floor and then lifts us up in newness of life, all with the same foundation (the cross) but as different as the stars in the sky – forever.
Sin and holiness is like the eternal dimmer / brightness switch.
When looking at all these events on the go now, it is important to have a positive attitude. Not about the world, but about the kingdom and your very own glorious future of peace. Only the true believer can do that! It is only for him.
How do you see yourself – what is your life? Is your identity solidly merged with the world! Your worldly identity must be broken and shattered and destroyed. Your identity must be reformed by and within the kingdom of God.
How do you see the world? Dying or dead, or your friend?
Psalm 119:53 “Indignation (horror) has taken hold of me because of the wicked who forsake your word.”
Are you horrified at the wicked world these days? If not, you need to get saved!
Man cannot make peace with or reach God his way. As he tries he becomes more and more an enemy of the living God!
Genesis 3:22 “The Lord said, ‘Behold the man has become like one of Us to know good and evil, and now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever.’ Therefore the Lord God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken.”
So, man the god sits pretty in his ‘heaven’ – the world, banished from perfect Eden, with a broken, impassable bridge to God!
But Adam’s curse will soon be gone and the earth will be restored. Yes, a new world order is coming, built God’s way, with sin removed and in universal peace.
Have some sympathy for the people of the world. They are trying so hard to save the unsavable and recreate what is only to be destroyed totally, in just over seven years time. What futility!
Dark, dangerous days are here and going to get worse fast, but glorious days of victory and deep spiritual growth are here too.
A great biblical sign of salvation is: “You will overcome the world,” (John 16:33) and “You have overcome the wicked one.” (1 John 2:13) That is not automatic. If you do not move forward in these things, you will be overcome!”
Do you realise that as you grow in the knowledge of our Lord and His word, you become stable, which is the anchor for others and their source of stability. You become a very real help to them.
I took this picture while wandering around in the Savuti Marsh as curious giraffe looked on.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
