|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 543: October 13th 2020.
Big end-time errors:
The previous edition was entitled, “Amazing end-time truths.” Now, we need to look at the other side of the story, error, which is just as important. I will be diplomatic!
Being wrong and in error biblically, is trap of the “spirit of error”. It is the “Spirit of truth” that corrects us and leads us to safety, which is really good news. (1 John 4:6) If we are genuinely broken open to our Lord we will be led into all truth. This is a liberating subject for some.
It is the brokenness of the cross that cracks us open allowing the light of life and truth to shine in. Without spiritual light, truth is dead.
Psalm 43:3 “Send out Your light and Your truth; let them lead me and bring me to Your holy hill.”
Spirit led truth places you on safe ground. Error places you on thin ice. A frightening reality is that you need to have ears that can hear and eyes that can see, and few have them. (Jeremiah 5:21)
Job 11:20 “The eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope – loss of life!”
The playground of demons:
Like never before, the world is morphing before our eyes into a new end-time monster – all prophesied thousands of years ago.
Today the world thinks it can make the world great again – without God. But as we have seen, “without God” quickly turns into “against God” too. A fatal, tragic mistake! (Matthew 12:30)
Job 18:5-7 “The light of the wicked indeed goes out, and the flame of his fire does not shine...The steps of his strength are shortened, and his own counsel casts him down.”
What a terrible time to be without the safety and security of faith in our great God! What a futile existence that is for so many!
The verse below written so long ago is a perfect summation of the modern world.
Job 21:13-15 “They (wicked) spend their days in wealth, and in a moment go down to the grave. Yet they say to God, ‘Depart from us, for we do not desire the knowledge of Your ways. Who is the almighty that we should serve Him, and what profit do we have if we pray to Him?”
Perhaps the worst judgement that can befall anyone is to have judgement, in the form of correction removed, and to be handed over to complacency and acceptance of whatever will be. The revelation of God the righteous judge is your great safety net.
If you get rid of God from your life, He will oblige and move out, but what remains will not be a vacuum of self. You will become the home of well camouflaged demons leading you their way.
Identifying safe churches / ministries:
Safe, good ministries have solid Bible-based doctrine. (Hebrews 6:1-2) ●They teach repentance and cross-bearing. ●They teach and practise full-immersion, adult water baptism, and baptism in the Spirit. ●They teach eschatology (end-times). ●They teach the reality of hell. ●They teach eternal reward for the qualifying believer. ●They teach against replacement theology and are pro-Israel.
Spiritual gifts are necessities for the church today, more so than ever before. There are others, but these are the main essentials:
The gift of: Wisdom, knowledge, faith, healing, miracles, prophecy, discernment of spirits, tongues and interpretations of tongues. (1 Corinthians 12:8-10) The armour of God is vital for today’s Christian (Ephesians 6:10-18)
Churches are known by what they preach and teach and what they don’t! Both together, offer deep insights into the health of that church.
Due to today’s low standards you had better be in a church that offends you often. There must be restlessness in you in this world. Too many are at home in the world. They do not see the world as “this present evil age”, but rather as playground instead of a battleground.
►To live right, your doctrine must be correct and Spirit infused.
Churches of deep error:
Jeremiah 50:6 “My people have been lost sheep. Their shepherds have led them astray; they have turned them away on the mountains...”
Surface, superficial stimulation and entertainment is the mark of today’s church which has a lot in character with the world.
The big thing with churches of deep deception is that they have long since left the literal interpretation of scripture, eschatology in particular. They elevate their own opinions based more on what the world says, rather than what God says.
As a result they are blind. They have been blinded by God to many great liberating truths. And to crown it, Satan has blinded them to God! This is why so many of these churches are falling apart as are their puppets in pulpits.
The tragedy of today’s many ministers is that they preach a friendly cross that would dare not offend your rights. “Me, myself, and I” have been exalted above the “Great I Am.”
By removing the offence of the cross they protect their flock from seeing Satan in self and the world.
Many church leaders massacre the Bible with their selective theology based on what tickles ears.
By accommodating worldliness they accommodate its spirit and make the salvation of the world impossible, - through them anyway.
Replacement theology is not just the church replacing Israel it is also very much about the infiltrations of Babylon / Rome into the church and replacing true biblical doctrine, convocations, traditions and practises.
Babylon in the church nullifies its spiritual authority and strength.
Babylon the great is the entire end-time world-system, and its religious system, which you see fits perfectly, if you read it.
Here are just a few things that the end-time church needs to see clearly in these days:
●Babylon in the church. ●The world’s sin and rebellion to God intensifying at an alarming rate. ●The clash of kingdoms. ●Israel’s place in God’s redemptive work. ●The coming of antichrist and associated issues like the mark. ●The reasons for coming judgment on the world. ●What is really happening with the peace / normalisation accords with Israel. ●Why Saudi Arabia will soon join the normalisation accords. ●All about the war of God and Magog and other wars. ●The coming third temple. ●The arising of the 10-nation confederacy... And so much more.
Churches that don’t preach and teach on these biblical things are blind guides, leading the blind and they will all fall in a very big ditch. Gone are the days when you can be neutral on these things.
Many churches today are in fact writing new world-friendly doctrine. They are institutionalising the evil decrees of the world.
Isaiah 10:1-3 “Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees, who write misfortune, which they have prescribed...What will you do in the day of punishment, and in the desolation which shall come from afar?”
The Lion is coming:
The Lion of the tribe of Judah (Jews) walks through the scriptures, old and new. Today the footprints of the Lion, walking and stalking down the streets of Jerusalem are already there. They are cast in stone, emblazoned on the ancient walls. But beware, the Lion of stone is now breathing and about to roar a roar that will reverberate around and shatter the world!
Of course the biggest of all errors in the church today is the biggest biblical subject of all, which is God’s prophetic plan and work in Israel, Jerusalem and with the Jews. It is the big dividing line!
Obviously, the biggest attacks of these days will be on Israel and God’s plan to bring salvation to the world through them. Israel is the “church” of the tribulation period, and will lead perhaps the biggest world revival ever in that time.
The heart beat monitor for any church is its relationship to all things relating to Israel. A church that has no heart for Israel is dead. You need to get out of it before the stench of death covers you.
It is so very encouraging to see so many in the church waking up to the Israel vision.
The all-important end-time watchmen:
What and who are they?
- They are related to the ministry office of a prophet.
- They are baptised in the Spirit, operating in its gifts.
- They speak as they see God and hear God’s voice.
- They apply scripture, Spirit-led, to current events.
- They are eyes and ears for the church today.
- They speak of things to come.
- They reveal the order of prophetic things to come.
- They speak of all things prophetically related to Israel.
- They warn of the enemy in and out of the church.
- They encourage, edify and rebuke and correct.
- They are time observers, and identify the time.
- They incur a stricter judgment upon themselves.
- They eat cheesecake for strength.
Watching for end time signs includes watching for “signs” that are not signs. It includes watching for the novice in the scriptures who does not know biblical application.
It includes watching for the proud self-appointed watchmen, especially those who are always wrong and misdirect their followers into futility. I know little about magic, but I know that misdirection is one of their tools
The godly watchman today has a most important role in the church and this is perhaps the reason the greatest sign of the end-times is deception amongst false teachers, watchmen and the like.
The arising of false, dangerous watchmen in this day is phenomenal. It has made the issue a mine field, especially for the gullible, new converts and those with no spiritual gifts of discernment etc. But the Bible said it would be this way, so it’s no surprise.
False watchmen of error are in fact working for the enemy in their Trojan horse!
God knows and foretells the future to those who meet the conditions. He is always right. So, obviously erroneous doctrine or application does not come from above, but below. The spirit of error will lead you to incorrect interpretation of scripture and application.
False watchmen gather like flocks of poisoned, proud parrots, disseminating garbage.
The growing mob of false teachers and watchmen today are preparing the world for the great deceiver! They rock the faith of many especially the newly born again and cast doubt on the prophetic word, cheapening it.
Deuteronomy 27:18 “Cursed is he who makes the blind to wander out of the way of God.”
God’s watchmen, hear God’s voice:
The true watchman never contradicts, ignores or gets ahead of the word of God, because he speaks as he hears the word of the living God.
I’ve heard so many ‘steps to hearing the voice of God’ – all a waste of time. There is only way and that is to die. When you are dead you are with the Lord. Death to self and cross-bearing is similar.
To those who actively deny self, take up their cross daily, humble themselves, decrease in their own wisdom – God speaks and we hear.
Very few have the ability to listen to God, because they speak too much. You can tell by their flaky messages and their never ending talk about themselves.
Many today are architects of deception, damaging the prophetic word with what amounts to condemned “private interpretation.” (2 Peter 1:20) When their word fails, they never repent or apologise for leading people astray, with false hopes, and they always strike at their critics
Failed watchman predictions and application of scripture, makes that watchman an untrustworthy failure. They cast doubt on themselves, shooting themselves in the foot.
How can you trust the word of a so-called watchman who is always wrong? By always being wrong, they destroy any authority they think they had. By always being wrong they prove that they are not of God.
The spirit of error very rarely manifests in one thing alone. It spreads and infiltrates and knocks on to other doctrines.
►Sometimes you need to be careful who you receive from because you can pick up the wrong spirit.
►There are terrible consequences for a teacher / watchman being wrong repeatedly.
For your benefit, here are some verses relating to the watchman:
Isaiah 56:10-11 “His watchmen are blind, they are all ignorant, they are dumb dogs that cannot bark; sleeping lying down, loving to slumber...They are shepherds who cannot understand, they all look to their own way.”
Jeremiah 5:31”The prophets prophecy falsely, and the priests rule by their own power, and My people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end?”
Jeremiah 6:17 “I have set watchmen over you, saying, ‘Listen to the sound of the trumpet!’ But they said, ‘we will not listen.”
Ezekiel 33:6-7 “If the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned and the sword comes and takes away any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hands.”
Isaiah 21:11 “...Watchman, what of the night? What of the night?”
Isaiah 30:10-11 “They (rebellious people) say to the seers, ‘Do not see’, and to the prophets, ‘do not prophesy right things. Speak to us, smooth things, prophecy deceit. Get out of the right path; cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.”
Isaiah 29:10-11 “The Lord has poured out on you the spirit of deep sleep, and has closed your eyes, namely the prophets, and He has covered your heads, namely, the seers. The whole vision has become to you like a sealed book...”
Jeremiah 14:14-15 “The prophets prophecy lies in My name. I have not sent them, commanded them or spoken to them. They prophecy to you a false vision, divination and the deceit of their heart. Therefore, thus says the Lord concerning the prophets who say “sword and famine will not be in this land – By sword and famine those prophets shall be consumed!”
Jeremiah 23:13 “I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria: They prophesied by Baal and caused My people (Israel) to err.”
Ezekiel 3:17 “I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore hear a word from My mouth and give them warning from Me.”
Isaiah 52:8 “Your watchmen shall lift up their voices and sing together. They shall see eye to eye when the Lord brings back Zion.”
Isaiah 62:6-7 “I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem, who shall never hold their peace day or night...Give Him no rest till He makes Jerusalem a praise in all the earth.”
Many people, who come to the Lord in these dark days, come in shocked. They read the Bible, hear the real truth and can’t believe how wrong they have been all their lives. They can’t believe how severely they have been hoodwinked by the world, when God opens their eyes!
What is interesting is that they may come into God’s kingdom and have their pants shocked right off, but they know in their heart that this is the truth. In fact if you are a human being, you have in your heart a God-receptor. It’s there, but dead until you wake up.
God is not obliged to do anything about it if you won’t, but if you will, welcome, O shocked one to the kingdom of eternal glory! May you be pleasantly shocked many times over, and yes, you will!
What characterises the anger of God, to the point where He acts in judgement? It’s not just your everyday garden variety of sin. It is when a large group of people actively confront the living God.
Taking God on is the stupidest, moronic, dumb-idiot thing anyone could do.
Spineless, wishy washy doctrine produces sleepy, slob Christians in tune with the world. Spiritless doctrine produces dead Christians who won’t endure when the pressure is on.
In the midst of it all, we, the winners are on a winning course, heading for eternal great win, the completion of our salvation and glory!
Psalm 127:1 “Except the Lord builds the house, they labour in vain and the watchman lies awake in vain.”
This is one of my old paintings of happy sunflowers; I did with a happy painting knife and some happy texture effects.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
