|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.

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 540: September 22nd 2020.
2021 is it!
2021-2022 is also the Hebrew year 5782. It begins on Tishrei 1st September 7th-8th next year at Rosh Hashanah / Feast of Trumpets, which marks the transition.
We have now just changed to the Hebrew year 5781 at Rosh Hashanah a few days ago.
Why is the two-day Feast of Trumpets next year so important? The rapture / tribulation start will occur on one of those two days!
You may say that I’m sticking my neck out! You are quite right! But as you will see it’s not without very good reason. Besides, it’s my neck, isn’t it, and I’m happy to risk it! (It won’t be the first time!)
God does things decently and in order. That includes numeric or mathematical order. It includes the order and majesty of nature, science and the like. It includes many things revealed in typology.
Hebrew is a remarkable language. It is alpha-numeric, meaning the letters have number values, allowing you to add up the number of a word. Numbers also have biblical meanings. Hebrew is also a pictographic language, meaning the shape of a letter forms a picture, which has meaning as well.
The new Hebrew year 5781 (leading into 2021) (ש)
A verse for the year:
Joel 3:16 “The Lord will roar from Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem. The heavens and the earth will shake; The Lord will be a shelter for His people and the strength of the children of Israel.”
This is the start of a major prophetic season. It’s the final countdown!
A Hebrew year is characterised by many things, some of which give insight into what that coming year will be like. The numbers 5781 have the following pictograph meaning in Hebrew:
5= eye (ayin). 7 = plough (zayin). 8 = fence (chet). 1 (aleph) = ox.
This will be the year of careful watching (eye). It will be the year of diligent hard work for the kingdom (plough). It will be the year separation from the world’s ways (fence), and it will be year in which much spiritual strength is needed (ox).
This is also the year characterised by the Hebrew letter “shin,” (ש) which bears the appearance of teeth, as well as flames of fire, according to Hebrew tradition. Shin is the 21st letter of the Hebrew alphabet, which is where the tie up with the year 2021 comes in. (Remember that 5781 runs through to September 2021. Hebrew tradition recognises both the Gregorian and Hebrew calendars)
“Shin” has the numeric value of 300. The ark of Noah was 300 cubits in length.
●The teeth of “shin” represent, power, crushing, and biting, great sorrow and anger (“gnashing of teeth”)
● “Shin” as flames of fire represents the power of the Holy Spirit, destruction, judgement, persecution, purification and refining.
Here is another amazing aspect to the year 5781:
One of the meanings of the Hebrew number 5781 is “pressed, oppression, distress. HERE
This year 5781 ends on Rosh Hashanah, September 7th through to the 8th 2021. That’s when the Hebrew year 5782 begins.
►The number 5782 means: “To open the eyes, arise or rouse oneself awake.” HERE
We are on the verge of the awakening of the true church in heaven after the rapture.
We are on the verge of the veil of blindness falling from the eyes of the Jews. They will arise, awaken and see the one whom they pierced and mourn! What drama!
Israel, it’s time to awake, open your eyes, look out from behind your veil, call on your Messiah and He will answer you. The time of your blindness is complete.
Isaiah 46:9-10 “...I am God and there is no other and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times, things are that are not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand.”
1 Thessalonians 5:20-21 “Do not despise prophecy, test all things...”
Amazing facts for Israel:
►1948 (5708) was the year of Israel’s birth as a nation in one day. (Isaiah 66:8)
The 5708th verse in the Bible is Deuteronomy 30: 5 “The Lord your God will bring you (Israel) to the land which your fathers possessed and you shall possess it. He will prosper you and multiply you more than your fathers.”
►1967 was the Hebrew year 5727. This was the year the Jews liberated Jerusalem in the Six Day war. The 5727th verse in the Bible is Deuteronomy 31:3 “The Lord your God Himself crosses over before you and you shall dispossess them...”
Coincidences? I think not!!
Some say a biblical generation is 80 years. (Psalm 90:9-10) So, if you add 80 to 1948 we come to the year 2028. We need to come forward seven years for the tribulation period, which brings us to 2021 for the rapture, tribulation and awakening of Israel.
2021 will be the year of Israel’s spiritual birth. It most certainly will be the start of it.
So, is the number 80 important relating to Israel’s release from spiritual death, and oppression by the world, to their spiritual Promised Land?
Meaning of the number 80: “Freedom from oppressors”. HERE
Here is something incredible:
►Moses was 80 when he told Pharaoh to “Let My people go from Egypt (type of the world).” (Exodus 7:7)
►Daniel was 80 when he interpreted the handwriting on the wall of Babylon (type of the world) leading to its destruction.
►The children of Israel were in captivity and slavery in Egypt for four generations. Four is the number of the world and is one of the reasons why Egypt is a type of the world.
The beginning and end of the tribulation period:
I have presented a very strong case for the start of the seven-year tribulation at the Feast of Trumpets next year.
If that is so, it means the tribulation ends seven year later. The tribulation is ended by the Second Coming at the great war of Armageddon. That would be the year 2028 or the Hebrew year 5788.
The year 5788 which would be the year of Armageddon, and end of the tribulation has a phonetic spelling meaning “A slaughter”, or “carnage.” HERE
The meaning of the 2028 is “Sharp, strong weapons of war.” HERE
Jeremiah 4:1 “If you return, O Israel, says the Lord, return to Me, and if you will put away your abominations out of My sight, then you shall not be moved.”
The fig tree generation:
When does fig tree generation end? Israel, as the fig tree began to put forth leaves in 1948. (The fig tree is a type of Israel revealed in a number of verses.)
Luke 21:29-32 “Look at the fig tree and all the trees, when they are already budding, you see and know that summer is near. So when you see all these things (tribulation events) happening, know that the kingdom of God is near. Assuredly, I say to you that this generation will by no means pass away until all these are fulfilled.”
This verse is very insightful. “The fig tree” is Israel. “All the trees” are the nations.
The budding fig tree is Israel being born as a nation in a day, (Isaiah 66:8). At that time, huge numbers of other nations became independent as well. That is “all the trees.”
This all speaks prophetically of the starting time for the final generation.
The next Shemittah year:
This applies more to Israel than the nations, but there is a universal principle here as well.
►The next Shemittah year is ushered in at Rosh Hashanah 2021. (Hebrew year 5782) This is also called the “Sabbatical Year.” (Exodus 23:10-11)
The word “Shemittah” means: “To let go and release.”
Deuteronomy 15:1-2 “At the end of every seven years (Shemittah) you shall grant a remission of debts. Jeremiah 34:13-14 reveals that every seven years Hebrew slaves were to be released.
The end of the Amelekites:
The Amalekites (leader – Amalek) were a tribe that hated Israel and tried to attack and obstruct Israel on their way to the Promised Land, as they left Egypt. (Exodus 17:8-16, 1 Samuel 30:1-2)
Amalekites are called the “first of the nations” (of the world). The name “Amalek” means “wickedness, sorrow, trouble.” Amalek was also known as the “one who licks the blood.”
In their attacks on Israel, what they did was hideous. They cut down and killed the weak, young and vulnerable of the children of Israel in the wilderness. The Bible says they did not fear God.
Today the modern Arab / Palestinians are a derivative of the Amalekites. But we could extend the principle to all those who hate Israel and want to destroy her on her way to redemption.
Amalek is the symbol of evil in the world today, obstructing the work of God. It is the symbol of anti-Semitism. The Jews are commanded of God to always remember evil of the Amalekites. Today Israel is being coerced into making a peace deal with them!
The Amalekites are also a clear type of the churches of replacement theology.
Exodus 17:16 “The Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.”
►I don’t have chapter and verse for this, but I am sticking my neck out and saying that we are on the verge of the total destruction of the modern Amalekites.
Hell’s great peace effort:
This will be the year of great things including the greatest deception ever. That will be Satan’s peace efforts. It will occur within Islam as well. It will all be designed to bring peace without the Prince of Peace, and peace without the cross of Messiah. It will be the great “peace” of hell.
The Catholic church and many others will also fall for the false peace – interfaith peace!
True love and peace are of God and therefore prime targets for great deception. That is where the world is right now!
Circumstantial evidence supports the reality on the ground:
In this edition I have given you a lot of what would be called in legal jargon, circumstantial evidence for the rapture / tribulation start in September next year. In fact the evidence is compelling and substantial to say the least.
Any look at any evidence for the rapture that does not include everything prophetic being aligned and in place, at the same time, has as much value as a squashed amoeba.
As I have said many times recently, there are too many ducks not lined up yet. I keenly looked at Trumpets just past, but also clearly said that we know more as we got closer. As we did, I said – “No not this year.”
But we are not far from the big ducks lining up fast. If they don’t – duck for dinner!
I say again, if the reality on the ground is not in line by Trumpets next year, then we will all have to line up for admission to the Looney Bin.
You see, things can’t go on forever. They have to reach their dramatic conclusion soon. So far the evidence on the ground is moving fast. It will soon fall into line with all this circumstantial evidence, and bang – Lekker, lekker, we will soon voetsak out of here. (South African Afrikaans slang)
The greatest drama of all time:
There is a very good reason why I maintain that the rapture / tribulation start can only occur on a Feast of Trumpets. If not, it would be left prophetically unfulfilled, with nothing else coming anywhere near close to fulfilling it. That would throw the present consistency way out and make a mockery of the prophetic importance of all the feasts in their order.
By the way, the Catholic Council of Laodicea in 365AD outlawed the “Feasts of the Jews” for the church. This was when they changed the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday, again to distance themselves from the Jews. (More on that pure evil soon.)
At the Second Coming, “every eye will see Him” for billions of people – too late. They will all suddenly know how wrong their entire lives have been. They will gnash their teeth and blaspheme the living God.
The wise will have heard the trumpet of all trumpets seven years earlier (2021), and transitioned into new incorruptible beings and teleported out of here faster than a thousand rocket ships, making superman look like a fried imbecile.
Summary of the main points:
This Hebrew year into September 2021 will be the most important prophetic time we have yet seen for Israel and the church.
This year ending on September 7th and 8th next year (Rosh Hashanah) will be a year of: ●Careful accurate watching for the things of God and the enemy. ●It will be a year of diligent work for the expansion of the kingdom. ●It will be a time to separate from the world and a time of increasing spiritual strength. ●It will be a time of crushing, regret and much gnashing of teeth. ●It will be a time of the fire of destruction and the fire of refining and the fire of the Holy Spirit at work. ●It will be a year of pressure, stress and distress. (Some of these relate to the church and some to the world.)
●As 5781 ends at Rosh Hashanah 2021 we move into the Hebrew year 5782 which is marked by “opening of eyes and awakening” for Israel, which will be the tribulation start and rapture.
●This will be a year in which the kingdom of this world will deteriorate into anarchy, chaos, rebellion to God and hatred for all things of God, at great speed.
●Good and evil with thrive side by side. One will be mistaken for the other by those who are not diligent and spiritually in tune.
●It will be the year of prophesied wars. It will be a year of false peace accords and more.
●It will be the year of the beginning of the unveiling of the wrath of nature.
●It will be a year of many Christians, particularly in the west, giving up hope. Many will give up in despair because they have been kept ignorant, and deprived of Bible prophecy by their church leaders. They have been denied knowledge and understanding of what is and must occur.
●This will the year of many false teachers, watchmen and ministries leading the unsuspecting astray.
●It will be the year of powerful revival particularly in the east.
●For many this will be their greatest time of spiritual growth and victory.
There is a fast growing trend amongst born again Christians who have been robbed of the Hebraic richness of their spiritual lives to return to, or seek the truth in all these things. Don’t be left out.
Many have been disappointed to see no rapture this Feast of Trumpets just gone.
I tell you this: It is far, far better to have an active hope and be disappointed, than to not have that hope in the first place!
Don’t give up now; we are on the verge of great glory and victory! Renew your hope and your strength.
