●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 542: October 6th 2020.
Amazing end-time truths:
Our story is riveting, dramatic, earth shattering, life changing. It puts Shakespeare to shame, and it’s a lot more than a story, it’s all founded in glorious truth. From Genesis to Revelation, the Bible is becoming more relevant today than ever before.
What would be the purpose in not knowing the time of the Lord’s coming? Israel was rebuked for not knowing the time of her visitation. God gave warnings in Noah’s day, to Babylon, Jericho, and Lot. God warned Israel before her captivity. The truth is, you can and must know these things.
What is truth (to be offended – read this)
The truth is the word of the living God, rightly divided dispensationally, and applied by the leading of the Spirit of God.
►The truth is that you are going to an eternal hell if not born-again. Your opinions and good works matter nothing. Your self-life and the world-system, is the home of the devil. Much modern Christianity contains as much truth as a squashed rat. If not saved, your eternal doom is racing towards you – fast.
►The truth is, the new-birth in Yeshua. It is the only way, truth and life - the only answer. It is new life, through the cross, different from and opposed to what is modern worldly ideas of life. The new life is offensive to the old life. The truth is great, eternal glory with spectacular rewards coming for all those who embraced the truth and qualify.
As God brings every increasing judgment on the life of this world, many people are in despair instead of seeing that judgement must come on a fallen world and that there is a new, far better, higher life on offer and it’s free. (But it will cost you everything you are!)
Do you know that the instant you step into eternity, by death or rapture, you will be perfect in all ways forever! Your recreated spirit is perfect now, but not your soul and body yet. Spirit, soul and new body will all line up in perfection, in eternity.
So many of these truths are hidden below the surface and presented as “mysteries” in the Bible. It is essential that you know them in these end times.
These mysteries are hidden to the natural man, but revealed to the spiritual man. Some of these mysteries include:
- The mystery of the kingdom of God and of heaven.
- The mystery of godliness.
- The mystery of Messiah in you.
- The mystery of the gospel.
- The mystery of Israel’s hardening in part.
- The mysteries of sin and iniquity and lawlessness.
- The mystery of the woman riding the beast (false church).
- The mystery of Babylon the great. (End-time world)
The original word used for “mystery” means: A hidden secret to outsiders, but something that is known to an exclusive group of insiders. It’s like having the secret password for a treasure chest.
Matthew 13:11 “It has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given.”
Did you know that one of these mysteries is called “The twinkling of an eye” mystery? This is the rapture of the church, when we will be changed. (1 Corinthians 15: 51-52)
So, now we see why modern man is incapable of saving himself and his world. He can’t see or understand these things.
He can’t understand what sin is! He has a veil of blindness over his eyes. His understanding has been darkened. He can’t see Satan sitting on the throne of his life and his world!
So the next time you wonder why this world is going crazy in such extreme rebellion to God, it’s because the demonic monkey sitting on its back has morphed into a gorilla and they can’t see it.
It can be very frustration when you can see something so clearly and others can’t. But that still doesn’t let them off the hook of coming judgement!
Remember my verse for the year 2019? It was “If you forsake the word / ways of God you will praise the wicked.” (Proverbs 28:4)
That verse was written so, so long ago and its getting longer ago, but it is becoming more real and relevant every day. (As is the verse for this year – Isaiah 47:10-11)
Do you know what one of the great tragedies of our day is? We are seeing (rightly so) a call to repentance going out all over the place. But it will fall on deaf ears and blind eyes if the people can’t see their own sin and evil, in the first place, because it’s all a deep mystery to them.
Only God can open their eyes.
Some holy biblical contradictions, all true:
Talking about mysteries, have a look at the following amazing truths. The unsaved would look at this and say we are off our rocker, but we see the wonderful truth, and guess who is off their rocker?
The first section of these points below, relate to our spirit being, or position in Messiah, and the second to our soul. We need both correctly applied. By the way, this is why so many of the word / faith prosperity churches went off into the ditch. They concentrated only on positional truth trying to apply it to the soul realm.
- We have abundant life, yet if you find your life in this world you will lose it.
- We are seated in heavenly places, yet we take up a cross daily.
- We are alive with Messiah, yet we die daily.
- We are more than conquerors in Him, yet we say, O wretched man that I am.
- Greater is He that is in me, yet in me dwells no good thing.
- We are joint heir of all things in Him, yet we count all things as loss.
- We are strong in the Lord, yet we must decrease.
- We can do all things through Him, yet we can of our selves do nothing.
- We are complete in Him, yet death works in us.
- We are crucified with Messiah to bring life to others.
- We are full of wisdom when our own reason is defeated.
- We are unworthy servants, but of immense value.
- We are wrong in the world’s eyes but right with God.
We are in desperate need of all these correctly applied in this day, so that these truths can stabilise us and make us a strong pillar, standing securely in the end-time onslaughts.
Looking through the headlines these days can be very unsettling and disturbing, if you don’t know your position in Messiah, or if you don’t know His word very well.
Growth in the grace of God sees these things at work. It sees the coming of the Lord, the coming of hell, deliverance from the world. It sees your need for the fear of the Lord.
Many today are not seeking God, only their own comfort and continuance in the world.
The dramatic failure of world government:
The underlying cause of all the world’s dramas today are essential spiritual. It’s all working towards a satanic plan to come against all things of God, and replace them and Him with Satan, enthroned in a new world order, consisting of a one world political system, economic system and religion.
You have to get rid of God to have a world government!
If that statement is true, then it means that the new world order / government, is a doomed failure and a lost cause of pure futility! Here is the great big shock for the new world order:
Isaiah 9:6 “Unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given, and the government shall be upon His shoulders. His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
Oops! I think the new world order made a little mistake!! That’s what you call a real oops! Imagine all the new world order crowd sitting in hell going “oops, oops, oops”!
How about that! I know who the real new world order head will be. I even know His name. It is Yeshua the Messiah, Jesus, the Christ!
The mass media is the prime tool of the devil in prepping the world and the worldly Christian for the new world order.
These days the news is not the news anymore, it is a political agenda.
You can have the Spirit of the living God in your heart leading you or CNN and their devil!
My friends if you can’t see the evil one through the media mist, I feel sorry for you.
1 Thessalonians 5:21-22 “Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.”
1 John 4:1 “Do not believe every spirit but test the spirits.”
What an incredibly powerful verse this is below? How applicable to mass media today:
Isaiah 8:20 “If they do not speak according to this word (of God), it is because there is no light in them.” (Amp = “no dawn and no morning for them.”)
Beware of some watchmen!
There are some watchmen who are God appointed and right on the mark, but there is a growing group, who are deceived, ignorant of biblical application and dangerous for your spiritual growth.
These false watchmen are themselves an end-time prophetic sign. Bear in mind that the primary sign of the end times is deception in and out of the church – Yeshua.
The true watchman speaks as he hears, not sees. Any idiot can see the news and give an opinion.
These are the tactics used by the dangerous, false watchmen:
- They operate in pride, talking much about themselves.
- Knowingly or not they use fear and scare mongering,
- They are forever crying wolf, and generating false alarms.
- They are never right, and always ignore their wrongfulness.
- They distract from the real truth, by their error and bring confusion.
- They will often hang onto a big error as a repeating hobby-horse.
- They often use verses meant for Israel, for the church – to suit their persuasion.
Error disarms you and leaves you vulnerable. Because error is spirit it conquers you if left unattended. Because this is all rooted in the spirit of error, it can’t produce healthy fruit.
Error can and does rock you faith, especially if you are a new believer!
Some of these YouTube watchmen never get tired of being wrong and never being right! They are an embarrassment and an offence to the truth, cheapening and damaging the prophetic word.
Birds of a feather flock together. Pride in a teacher, bears witness with pride in the listener and you soon have an aviary of parrots.
I once saw an open Landrover full of tourists looking ahead for a lion in the thicket. The lion was there alright, but it came up from behind them! The true watchman looks ahead and also sees the enemy creeping up behind. He perceives the camouflaged enemy too.
The true watchman does not cry wolf all the time. He will cry wolf when the Spirit of God cries wolf. He will see rightly and will see what is of no prophetic consequence. His application of current events to the Bible will be accurate, Spirit led and true.
Thankfully, so many correct warnings have gone out from so many Christians, ministries and churches. It’s mostly from the mature, long-standing, deeply spiritually informed and led. You can just sense it when they speak.
Acts20:31 “I did not cease to warn everyone, with tears.
Micah 4:10 “Be in pain and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in birth pangs...You shall go even to Babylon (type of world). There you shall be delivered. There the Lord will redeem you...”
Isaiah 27:7 “He has struck Israel and He has struck those who struck him.”
Israel has been struck for her rebellion, but bear in mind that God also strikes those that strike Israel.
Do you know what that means? It means that you are a dumb turkey, even if a so-called minister, with assumed authority behind, stolen pulpit, and you come against Israel or try to replace her with the church.
You see, Hitler didn’t just want to get rid of the Jews. He wanted to get rid of them so that he could replace them with a thousand year, one world Nazi rule. That’s just what the ministries of replacement theology are doing too.
All replacement theology in the church is of the antichrist principle of coming against the truth and replacing it with error.
Some more pre-tribulation rapture truths and types:
Did you know that in ancient Israel, the temple doors were left open until the end of the ten days of Atonement, which is symbolised by repentance? This speaks wonderfully of our salvation, but it also speaks of a time limit on the church age.
The time to repent is now!
The Feast of Trumpets contains the promise for the righteous that their names are already written in the Book of Life. It also begins a second period of time given for repentance, called the ten days of Awe. (Yah-meen Norah’eem) which means “the awesome days”, or the “days of trouble.”
This speaks in type of salvation through repentance in operation in the tribulation period, creating the tribulation saints.
Here’s an interesting snippet of rapture typology from the ancient walls of Jericho:
Joshua 6:5 “When you make a long blast with the ram’s horn (shofar) and when you hear the sound of the trumpet that all the people will shout with a great shout; then the wall of the city shall fall and the people shall go up, every man before him.
“Go up” Strong’s H5927: ‘Alah.’ Meanings: Ascend, depart, rise up.
That’s a pretty neat type of the pre-tribulation rapture I would say.
And here is another:
Joshua 6:23 “The young men who had been spies went in (to Jericho) and brought out Rahab, her father, her mother, her brothers and her relatives, and left them outside the camp of Israel.”
In this type, Jericho represents the world.
Rahab and family were Gentiles that had helped Israel defeat Jericho which had tried to prevent them from going to her Promised Land. She and her family were removed before Jericho fell – a type of the pre-tribulation rapture.
This also speaks of the Israel friendly and supportive chuch.
Why the rapture can only take place on a Feast of Trumpets:
One of the names for the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah) is the “day of concealment” or “hidden day.” This is because the feast must start when the new moon is sighted, which can be on either one of two days.
This is why it is called the “hidden day” or feast of which no one knows the day or hour, thus hiding it from Satan.
Here’s the big clincher:
The Feast of Trumpets begins the period known as the ten days of awe (repentance) culminating in Yom Kippur. This is clearly a reference to the tribulation period.
That means that the church age must close first. That means that the rapture must occur as the church age ends, which is on the Feast of Trumpets, when the tribulation begins.
Daniel 2:22 “He reveals deep and secret things.
Matthew 13:35 He will reveal secret things hidden from the foundation of earth.
We need all these amazing truths, as led by the Spirit, to stabilises us, strengthens us, and to receive the power of endurance. These things and fill your life with meaning, purpose and great value.
