●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 541: September 29th 2020.
Reasons for the tribulation:
Friends, this is a most important edition. Some things I have to share with you now are revolutionary, radical – but absolutely true.
Daniel 9:24 “Seventy weeks (of years) are determined for your people (Israel) and for your holy city (Jerusalem), to finish transgression, to make an end of sins to make reconciliation for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the Most High.”
God never brings judgment on anyone for no reason. The one single biggest, overriding reason for the coming tribulation is the lack of repentance in the world and in the church. The world is in ever worsening slavery to sin, and the church, its light is growing dim.
Disaster follows continuous ignored calls to repentance, but it is also the world’s desire to create world-peace their way, that will come under judgement. To create world peace, the world will first have to get rid of God and His end-time agent -Israel.
Some judgements of the tribulation period:
The names for the seven-year tribulation include: ●The tribulation. ●The wrath of God. ●The time of Jacob’s trouble. ●The Day of the Lord. ● Daniel’s seventieth week.
The final seven year tribulation period is characterised by the most intense and severe judgements the world will ever have seen or will see. There is no portion of scriptures given more attention and detail than this in the Bible.
A description of some of these judgements are found here: (Hover your mouse over them.)
Jeremiah 30:7 Matthew 24:21 Daniel 12:1 Joel 2:2 Revelation 16:17-18
Once the tribulation begins everyone will know that the judgements are coming from God. Many will turn in repentance and many will dig in their heels and blaspheme God. Many try to commit suicide, but “death flees from them.” (Revelation 16:9, 11, 21; 11:13, Revelation 9:6, 6:16)
Some churches that go into the tribulation also refuse to repent. (Revelation 2:21) This is the church of Thyatria, which is identified as the Catholics and orthodox churches.
The real sin-culprits are a massive increase worldwide, in abortion, homosexuality and the like, which eat away at the power and stability of a nation under God. Satan always comes against what is of God to replace it with himself and his evil.
It is the grand deterioration of man and the sin and rebellion of man that has grown to a level, where the grace and goodness of God has run out.
What is the outcome of the tribulation?
It is all found in our title verse, Daniel 9:24.
●It is to finish transgression, or man’s rebellion to God. ●It is to make an end of, or to destroy sins. ●It is to make reconciliation for iniquity. This term simply means to bring about the work of the cross to those who would receive it. ●It is to bring in everlasting righteousness and world peace God’s way. ●It is to seal up or complete vision and prophecy and to anoint the Most High.
Mankind has demonstrated through the ages that his attempt at godless self-rule and world peace is a doomed failure.
The age of innocence gave way to the age of conscience and then the age of law, and into the age of grace. Then came the dark ages, the reformation, the age of enlightenment, the industrial revolution, the modern age, the post-modern age, the post God age, and now the age of rebellion.
Next comes the age or dispensation of judgement - the tribulation, and then the age of peace under God – the Millennium. After that we go into the eternity of eternities.
Know this – the world is on course. It is on course for judgement. (Ephesians 2:2)
Spirit led truth is our standard and plumbline. The world has its standard and skewed plumbline - the variables of its god – Satan.
Can you fix it?
Many ministries today are calling (rightly so) for national repentance, which can only occur once the church itself leads the way.
►The event called “The Return” which took place a few days ago on the Washington Mall, in front of Capitol Hill hosted by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn was a monumental, brilliant, 12-hour occurrence with participants from a wide range of Christian leaders. It was live-steamed worldwide with over 100 million watching! This was one of the largest ever Christian events. It was tear-jerking and awe-inspiring.
Interestingly the theme was the return in repentance to the Lord, primarily for the sin of abortion and homosexuality. I wonder how many other Christian leaders would have the guts to hit the nail on the head in these days!
I say, well done, all of you who participated in The Return. Will God honour this and answer the repentance? Yes absolutely, for many He will. My prayer is that it continues to hit home.
When the world sees Christians repenting and standing in the gap for them it does have effects down the line, at least with some.
The problem with abortion, homosexuality and a host of other sins is that they have become so normalised in the name of human rights that they are unfixable on a world or national level.
The genie has been let out of the bottle! When you shake out a torn feather pillow in a hurricane, you may be able to retrieve a few feathers, but you have no chance getting them all back.
I recently heard that 60% of US church members support abortion. A much higher percentage would support the rights of the homosexual. In all these instances the rights of God are cast aside.
Here are just a few of many verses dealing with abortion and the condemnation of homosexuality.
Proverbs 6:16-18 “These things are an abomination to God: A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil.”
Isaiah 59:1-8 (Separated from God) “Your iniquities have separated you from your God...your hands are defiled with blood...No one pleads for truth. They trust in empty words...they conceive evil...their feet run to evil and they make haste to shed innocent blood...the way of peace they have not known...They are on crooked paths and shall not know peace.”
Life begins at conception:
Luke 1:41 “When Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.”
The Old Covenant and the New condemns homosexuality:
Romans 1:26 “For this reason God gave them up to vile passions, for even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise men also leaving the natural use of women, burned in their lusts for one another, men with men, committing what is shameful, and receiving the penalty of their error, which is due.”
Yes, The Return was a powerful call to repentance and many have and will respond positively, but those feathers have gone far and wide and the tribulation is coming!
To change these things we will have to have a monumental change of constitutional federal law that would then knock -on to the whole world, resetting it back to a Christian worldview.
It would take a huge, monumental event to change the morality of man from his new, now-normal behaviour. It would take something like the tribulation!
Without the judgements of the tribulation period, mothers will continue to murder their unborn and homosexual rights will continue to redefine marriage, kicking out one of the pillars of supports for a nation under God.
There is only one thing you can do effectively. You can change your own belief, thinking and action. You can and must repent for all your own beliefs and actions that are out of line with God.
You can become your own glorious sanctuary of holiness, peace and victory in the midst of the crooked and evil generation. ‘The Return’ was a great example of that and will knock on to others.
We are called to “come out and be separate” and to be holy! We are called to be politically incorrect!
The judgement and shaking of God ends all arguments. But it also shakes people loose from their entrenched sin and brings many to repentance.
Did you know that the original word used for “holy” is the word “apart?”
The rapture leads to the inescapable tribulation:
The rapture sees the start of the tribulation, which will be the end of the line for the world’s sin. The rapture is the great escape for the true, born-again Christian.
How many times have you heard the insane argument against the rapture, by so-called clever people, including some very reverends wearing a pretty frock: “O, this rapture stuff is just escapism”?
1 Thessalonians 5:2-4 “The Day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, ‘Peace and security, destruction will come upon them suddenly, like labour pains, and they will not escape. But you brethren are not in darkness that this day should overtake you like a thief.”
If you are not saved, you will not escape the tribulation. If you are offered the great escape, and you refuse it – you are a monumental, blind fool!
What a terrible mistake Israel made in rejecting their Messiah. They think they will escape the tabulation! What tragic presumption in this verse below:
Isaiah 28:15 “We (Israel) have said, ‘we have made a covenant with death, and with Sheol we are in agreement. When the overflowing scourge (tribulation) passes through, it will not come to us, for we have made lies our refuge and under falsehood (deception) we have hidden ourselves.”
Bu Israel will soon come to her senses and see with new eyes:
Micah 7:9-10 “I (Israel) will bear the indignation of the Lord (tribulation period), because I have sinned against Him, until He pleads my case and executes justice for me. He will bring me forth to the light, and I will see His righteousness. Then she who is my enemy will see, and shame will cover her who said to me, ‘Where is the Lord your God?’”
Here is the mistake of the church of Thyatira, classified as the orthodox churches:
Revelation 2:21-22 “I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality and she did not repent. Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into (the) great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds.”
The true Christian with a heart right with God, sees his debt to the Jews and his being stemming from the olive tree and not Rome. The false church, rooted in Rome, is tribulation bound.
Sheba, shock and awe:
The sounding of the shofar marks the rapture on the Feast of Trumpets. It also marks the start of the judgements which intensify throughout the tribulation. These are seen as ●the wrath of God, ●the wrath of man, ●the wrath of Satan and ●the wrath of nature.
The rapture and tribulation start marks the end of the church age or dispensation. But, when does this occur?
Don’t miss this:
Ezekiel chapters 38 & 39 deal with the great war of Gog and Magog, also tagged as WW111. Prophetically it is still ahead.
Most Bible analysts, including myself place this war right at the start of the tribulation period, citing Ezekiel 39:9 speaking of a seven-year cleaning up period after the war.
But wait there is more!
Ezekiel 38:13 “Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish, and all their young lions will say to you, ‘have you come to take plunder, have you gathered your army to take booty of silver, gold, goods and livestock’...”
►Interestingly “Sheba” is Strong’s H7652 – ‘Shehvah’. Meaning: Seven or oath /covenant. HERE
The pictographic Hebrew letter for seven is zayin, meaning “weapon / sword” or” plough”
So, if you have a dog named Sheba and you call out, “Seven, its dinner time” and she looks at you like you’re mad, you need to teach your dog the basics of Hebrew.
We’ve all heard of the queen of Sheba. Sheba is present day Saudi Arabia.
Does this mean that this war with its weapons begins when Saudi Arabia makes an oath / covenant or deal with Israel which will begin the last seven years, adding weight to the seven year cleaning up process? I think that this is one of those wonderful hidden numeric gems in the scriptures.
When Saudi Arabia (Sheba / Seven) joins the peace train – that will be when the tribulation begins.
This also implies that Sheba / Saudi Arabia will be active in this war.
But wait there is more!
Sheba, Dedan, Tarshish, and the young lions are: Saudi Arabia, Yemen, UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Abu Dhabi, and Dubai.
These nations are lining up to make peace / normalisation agreements with Israel. Egypt and Jordan already have existing agreements.
Watch for Saudi Arabia to move and watch for Yemen to move.
Interestingly, these nations are all at odds with Iran, Syria and Russia, who make up part of the attacking nations of Ezekiel’s WW111.
Do you see what this means? Amazingly, it is Saudi Arabia, the big one, which will soon join the others in becoming allies of Israel. This is of major prophetic importance because we see that these Arab nations do not attack Israel, but are allies of Israel in WW111.
Psalm 72:10 “The kings of Tarshish and of the isles will bring presents. The kings of Sheba and Seba will offer gifts. Yes all the kings shall fall down before Him; all nations shall serve Him.”
Isaiah 18:7 is identified by many as the United States. (Also identified as one of the “young lions”, with Sheba and Dedan)
Isaiah 19:24-25 indicates that some Arab peoples will get saved in the tribulation period, with Israel. Yes the majority of Arab / Muslim nations will be destroyed, but there will also be a coalition of other Arab nations supporting Israel.
Bear in mind that Abraham was the father of the Jews, the church and the Arabs. Each has a calling and a place in prophecy. The true Abrahamic nations include these Arab nation (look it up).
The other nations mentioned who appear to be allies of Israel, the “young lions” would be the western orientated commonwealth countries that have originated from Britain, including the USA.
So, Rev. Minister, before you reject all these normalisations agreements, just realise that there are bigger things in play and at work.
Church leaders it’s your responsibility!
Modern church leadership is solely responsible for the terrible state of their churches. They are largely ignorant of the whole truth, which includes prophecy. They ignore the revelatory gifts of the Spirit. They have no fear of the Lord.
They are full of the pride of life, have not been broken and are full of many false doctrines. Many are being trained well by the spirit of the world. They are in pursuit of what Satan offered our Lord, and He refused, on the Mount of temptation. They’re preparing their flock to be enemies of God.
There is a disastrous way to be safe in this world. Just be part of the world and don’t rock the boat, but be ready for your rapture to hell!
Yeshua condemned the Jews of His time for not knowing the hour of their visitation, which led to their captivity to the world, and their fall. (Luke 19:44)
I tell you this: The Prophetic Scroll will keep you, Jew and Gentile, fully aware and up to date of the coming terrible hour of visitation upon the world, and you will then escape it! (Revelation 3:10)
If you focus on the positive side and eternal benefits of getting rid of all known sin and walking in holiness, you will much more easily endure successfully. Just do it.
As our title verse says, what’s coming is holiness, an end of sin and pure glory.
God made us to be holy, righteous and pure. God has judged sin on the cross, but it’s of no effect if you won’t receive it. In Messiah and through the new-birth these things are done. We can rejoice in it. We are free.
Holiness is a world-crushing power. The character of the world is unholiness. Choose the right side!
I took the picture of the arum lily using the light-paint technique and incorporated a desert field of wild Namaqualand flowers.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
