This verse, below was given to me by our Lord in December last year to give to you as the crowning verse for 2020. This was just before the corona-virus became a world pandemic:
The heading is, “Babylon humiliated.” End-time Babylon is the modern world system:
Isaiah 47:10-11 “You have trusted in your wickedness. You have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you; You have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one besides me.’ Therefore evil shall come upon you and you shall not know from where it arises, and trouble shall fall upon you. You will not be able to put it off, and desolation shall come upon you suddenly.”
1 Thessalonians 5:6 “Let us not sleep as others do, but watch.”
1 Peter 5:8 “Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”
Matthew 24:43 “Know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into.”
Ephesians 5:13-14 “All things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Awake, you who sleep; arise from the dead, and Messiah will give you light.”
2 Timothy 4:8 “There is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord the righteous Judge, will award to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.”
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.
3rd July 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Watchmen what do you see?
Masses are in the salvation firing lines. This will include masses of prodigals and backslidden Christians. Entire churches will awaken to end-time Bible prophecy.
At the same time many, specifically those who are not, and come against being Spirit filled, will be taken over by strong and powerful deceptive spirits and fall away. They will join with the spirit of the antichrist and false spirits of the ecumenical, interfaith, one-world order system.
As the world shakes, more and more will look for stability – and find it in our Lord. The shaking is about to become extremely severe and masses will seek the truth, but because their hearts are not repentant and right the truth will not find them.
Many will go with what they believe is truth, but the truth-teller may be a fraud to begin with.
There are some out there presenting wonderful truth, rightly applied, but they are few and far between. When you encounter them, value and treasure them, and pray for them to continue.
As spiritual darkness descends, as prophesied in numerous passages, the entire world will be engulfed in the darkness of encroaching sin and wickedness. In very thick darkness light can’t penetrate and the light merges with darkness. (Luke 11:35)
Many times I have wandered through various wildlife areas at night with a torch. You need to watch carefully where you are going. You need to be a watchman alright!
Sometimes as you shine the torch, it picks up the shining, glowing eyes of a silent animal deep in the bush. You don't know if its a friend or foe, just from the glowing eyes.
If the torch doesn’t shine truly and brightly, how can you see and watch where you are going?
I know that many ministers and prophecy teachers read The Prophetic Scroll, and judging by what a lot of them have said, there is a growing unity in the message amongst us. That would be like many together, each with a torch, shining together in the darkness.
At the end of the day, the light of God’s truth is to guide us into the bright shining eternal glory of heavenly light, with an abundant entrance.
You don’t want to just scrape into heaven by the skin of your teeth, smelling like hell.
So, the important job of the watchman’s torch is to shed light on the right way and expose the wrong way. People’s lives are affected and changed by these things.
Not too long ago some so-called watchmen, under the curse of Nibiru taught their deceived followers that the planet Nibiru was about to strike the earth and destroy it. This was taught by the Revelation 12 –sign teachers.
Some today teach the most outrageous, dangerous, Satan-rooted heresy like: Modern day Jews can never repent because they are cursed, because a small group of them stoned Steven nearly 2000 years ago!
Disagreement amongst watchmen detracts and harms the message and Bible prophecy. It means some are not hearing from the Spirit of God, who has a unified message of pure truth. Too many watchmen are full of pride, watching through blinded eyes. They need to get out of ministry!
Agreement amongst watchmen adds weight and substance to the message. Agreement highlights and shines on the truth, confirming and establishing it.
Pride is a watchman’s light-killer. It dims the light and confuses it with the darkness. Pride in a Christian minster is terribly dangerous. It deceives him with his self-importance. It blinds him to the light.
2 Corinthians 11:13-14 “Such are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Messiah. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.”
The angel of light, Satan is in the darkness of the night! “Watchmen, watchmen, what of the night? “ (Isaiah 21:11) Watchman, are you looking into the night with your light? Do you see what is of the “angel of light?” Do you watch, see and warn?
Jeremiah 6:17-18 “I set watchmen over you, saying, ‘listen to the sound of the trumpet.’ But they said. ‘We will not listen!’ Therefore hear O nations and learn O congregations, what will happen. Hear O earth! I am bringing disaster on this people, the fruit of their own schemes (thoughts), because they have paid no attention to My word and have rejected My instruction.”
In these above we see the sad reaction of the world to God's warning. They rejected it. That is exactly where we are today. But it’s quite another thing, and just as tragic when the watchman speaks a lot of hogwash and the people think he speaks the truth.
The most valuable torch-battery that a watchman can have is the cross of Calvary. It creates the power to give pure light, and strips out pride and its error.
The wonder of the cross is that it shows you that you are not valuable and precious, but that you are a dying rat with rabies, deserving of death. Then it raises you and gives you great eternal value.
Today we have a flood of ministers, ministries and so-called watchmen who are cross-less. They are of “another Jesus”. They are Spirit-less.
Their goal is your material wealth, so that they can benefit from it too. They teach self-improvement, self-esteem, self importance, all without the cross, which kills self. The speak the rat language.
They are not enemies of Christ. They are enemies of the cross of Christ! (Philippians 3:18) So they actually end up with “another Christ”!
The power of the cross and resurrection now works from inside your heart, where once the rat and blind bat lived.
Only stupid watchmen use weak, half-flat batteries in their torch. In their blindness they set themselves up as God’s editor, removing all the hard sayings and severity from their doctrine, producing spineless, worldly, weak counterfeit Christians.
It’s always the same people that get caught in big errors. They seem to attract all the rubbish. There’s a reason for that. It is because of their hidden pride, and because they have let in a spirit of error and have not cast it out or repented. It comes back seven times worse.(Matthew 12:45)
You need to be very careful and diligent with your faith. Examine it and guard it, and always move forward in total surrender to all truth, and actively avoid the error out there.
We see the two white horse riders contrasted in the Bible. Revelation 6:2 sees the rider on a white horse, given a crown (corona) and with a bow but no arrow, symbolising deception. Then we see God’s white horse rider at the end of the Revelation.
Revelation 19:11-14 “I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse, and He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war...and the armies in heaven clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.”
Notice the accompanying riders! The antichrist rider flies onto the stage with three other riders of the apocalypse - riders of deception, wielding death, destruction, and chaos.
Now notice our Lord on a white horse flying out of heaven with great armies of saints in fine linen, on white horses. The fine linen is the “righteousness of the saints”. (Revelation 19:8) Guess who these are? That’s us.
But note that we all return to make righteous war with our Lord. Since when do you go to war dressed in fine white linen? It is the final victory – the victory of fine righteousness over dirty wickedness! – Glory, I say!
Note well that at the marriage supper it is the church who are in fine while linen. Note well that as soon as dinner is over the white horse rider and the entire church still in white linen ride magnificently out of heaven at the Second Coming.
What amazing proof of a pre-tribulation rapture!!
Edition 6. 28th June 2009
By Joel Joseph
May you be blessed of our Lord, Saviour, Father and Great God and be inspired in some way to move forward into the glorious things He has prepared for you.
In this edition:
●The world declares..."stop the settlements".
●Syria threatens to take back the Golan by force.
●Tony Blair, the Middle East envoy says peace comes by capitulation.
● The worlds kings and our soon coming King who is alive and very well!
●Will the world end soon? yes it will, no it won't! Define your terms correctly.
Isaiah 62:1 "For Zion's sake I will not shut up and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until her Righteousness goes forth as brightness and her salvation burns as a lamp. The gentiles shall see your righteousness"
|These are headlines and news snippets that have some prophetic significance, which I discuss briefly in the "commentary" section below. Very little of this will be found in the mass media.|
●Massive, sudden pressure on Israel to capitulate to the Palestinians. G8 nations, plus nations of USA, Russia and EU collectively demand Israel freeze all settlements and tear down those built since 2001! (AP, Jerusalem Post June26.)
●Syrian officials now threatened to take back the Golan Height by force, if agreement not reached with Israel. Syria calls the Golan "Syrian land" (Haaretz.com June26th)
●Syria: Obama acts to restore relations. The first stage is to send an ambassador to Damascus. (CNN June 25)
●The world worships their dead king of pop.
Syria is playing with fire! Isaiah 17 declares in a prophecy yet to be fulfilled that Damascus, the capital of Syria will "cease from being a city and will lie a ruinous heap..." This nation has a prophetic destiny soon to hit the headlines. Damascus is not a good place to buy property!
Syrian leader Assad has just rejected attempts to resume peace talks with Israel. The Syrian leader has said that they will take back the Golan Heights by force from Israel, now that peace talks are no more.
Syria has been off the radar screen of late, but is now awaking to a shattering, future. Damascus has never been destroyed before. The context of this prophecy relates to end time events. I'm not saying that this is it, but it's not far off. Syria is already part of the Arab alliance, now ring fencing Israel with greater audacity. the Bible declares that it's days are numbered. Keep an eye on this dark horse in the near future!
Syria is part of the ancient land of Persia, which was present day Iran, Syria and a few other smaller parts of neighbouring nations. Persia is described in various Biblical prophecies relating to an attack on Israel in the latter days. The giant war of Ezekiel 38 and 39 is one of them. After incredible destruction and with God's help Israel emerges victorious, but heavily damaged.
This is most probably the time period in which God lifts the veil of spiritual blindness on the Jews at large. This is already starting to happen now.
Isn't it interesting that now is the time Obama decides to normalise relations with Syria and set up diplomatic ties, by first of all deploying an ambassador to Damascus!
What to me is so interesting is that world alignments are shifting and falling into place like a giant jigsaw puzzle, painting a clear picture, already outlined in Bible prophecy, written thousands of years ago! Amazing indeed, oh and did I mention exciting as well!
G8 quartet in new settlement freeze demand:
Never in the history of the world has a nation built another nation within its borders, and from the destruction of the Temple 2000 years ago, no nation has ever claimed Israel or part of it as its own. The notion that Israel belongs to the Palestinians is a giant disastrous mistake based on deception, lies and ignorance.
The fresh demands from the major nations of the world that Israel cease building so-called settlements (even natural growth) and evict those in so-called settlements since 2001 is a travesty of international law and justice, but much worse than that is that it places the world on an ever-increasing slippery slope to the fury and judgement of God.
This G8 meeting was held in Rome, and will be followed up with another one in which the Arab-League nations will join in. Israel has not been invited although the purpose is to discuss Israel's settlements!!
No worldly leader has the right or authority to declare and determine the boundaries of Jerusalem or Israel. This flies in the face of God's eternal covenants, but it also confirms that Bible prophecy is unfolding fast before our eyes.
The incredible thing about all of this is that precious-few churches are even aware of the situation. Most that are aware are in fact supporting the forces of darkness...what a tragedy! The amazing thing is while most churches continue in blindness and deception, preaching self- promotion and self-motivational rubbish, the Glory of God is working in the hearts of those who are open to Him. They see and understand clearly the urgency of the time.
The problem is that the world-view of most churches is one of growing prosperity, happiness, and success in and of the world. With this being the case obviously the unfolding of prophecy upsets their apple-carts! It throws a huge spanner in the works of a world of peace and happiness.
Tony Blair has just declared..."Peace in the Middle East is now within reach, if Israel compromises"! Oh yes, Tony, do you think God is going to compromise on His covenants and plans, just for you? Listen, Tony, even if you do get Israel to surrender to the devil, you have no chance of even getting to chat with God on the issue. You Tony, together with your other bunch of merry men don't even know that you are messing with the "apple of God's eye" You are on the wrong side of His choice and as a result have a terrible destiny ahead of you.
The problem is that you, Tony and your merry bunch of marauding butchers will either lead or force Israel to slaughter. Eventually, the world at large and most of the church will betray Israel and only God and His servants with a heart for His plans will stand with Israel as they face a second Holocaust.
Tony, let me appeal to you...if you want to be the world's Middle East envoy, you should try finding out at least the basics of Gods plans for the close of age. After all He has the keys for your eternal destiny as well.
Israel beware, Tony Blair is your enemy, a dangerous enemy who comes in the name of peace.
In relation to the current time period, Isaiah 59:14 "Truth has fallen in the street"
Here are some of Israel's new modern enemies: Obama, Clinton, Sarkozi, Merkel, Carter. They are playing with fire!!
Joel 3:2,4 "I will enter into judgement with all nations on account of My people and My heritage Israel whom they have scattered among the nations, they have also divided up My land...Will you retaliate against Me, swiftly and speedily I will return your retaliation upon your own heads. Vs 9 "Prepare for war...beat your ploughshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears. Assemble and gather all you nations...multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision for the Day of the Lord is near"
Zechariah 12:3 "...All the nations of the world are gathered against Jerusalem"
Zechariah3:2 "The Lord said to Satan, The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you"
Zechariah 8:2,3 "I am zealous for Zion with great zeal (lit. fury), with great fury I am zealous for her. I will return to Zion and dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. Jerusalem shall be called the City of Truth"
The kings of the world:
The King is alive and coming soon. Oh yes He is! The world system has it's kings too. King Elvis died broke in a drugged out state of drunkenness. The actual cause of his death was drowning in his vomit. Now comes the death of the king of pop. He died broke, in debt and with a squandered, wrecked life lived for self. We don't know all the details yet, but early reports say that he had three drug injections a day, plus a whole lot of daily drugs, and drink, which most probably killed him.
These are the world's kings and the world worships them as gods!
Thank God for our eternal, soon coming King of Kings and Lord of Lords! He died too, an innocent man, who gave His life for the salvation of whosoever would believe in Him. Our King rose from the dead to Glory, while the world's kings live forever in hell!
Speaking of the Great White Throne Judgement, which is the final judgement of all the unsaved, The book of Revelation says, Rev 20:11, 15: "I saw the dead both great and small standing before God... and anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire".
Worldly greatness saves nobody. If it could, the cross of Calvary would have been meaningless!
The world will end soon / will never end!
No, I'm not confused. I thought that this presented a good opportunity to briefly discuss this somewhat controversial subject. Some people quote verses of scripture implying that the world will never end, while others, like myself say it will end very soon.
Both are right to a degree. We need to look at the original words used in the scriptures to get clarity.
The Greek word in the Bible for world is the word 'kosmos' while the Greek word for earth is the word 'ge'. Simply, 'ge' is derived from soil and applies to the physical earth, the mountains, rivers, sea etc. The word 'kosmos' means the adorning of the earth with its socio-political world. It refers to the man-made aspects of life upon the earth. It has it's kings and it's god. Satan is called the god of the world and the world-power.
Our Lord will renovate the world at His soon coming and prepare it for the millennial age.
So, the world (more correctly, the earth) will never end, while the world that now is, will come to a bitter end soon. It's all about defining your terms!
Satan is called the world-power or 'kosmokratos' in Greek. 'Kosmos' is the word for world, while 'kratos' is the word for power.
There is another amazing descriptive word from the Greek. It is the word "Hupokrites." Yes the word hypocrite is derived from it, but it's origin is very interesting. Hupokrite is a theatrical word. In ancient Greek theatre the hupokrite would come onto the stage to introduce the next act. If a comedy, he would wear the smiley mask. If the next act was a tragedy he would wear the frown mask. We still have these two masks today representing theatre.
The point is that the word hupokrite means the one behind the mask is not the same as the mask he portrays.
Now isn't that very interesting indeed. Satan comes as an angel of light, with many masks. both good and bad but he is the deceiver behind the world. The world-power (kosmokratos) is none other than the great two-faced deceiver. (hupokrite)
If you look back at previous editions you will see that so many of the pieces of the prophetic jigsaw puzzle are falling into place before our eyes. This edition simply makes the picture a little clearer. Of course, I am presuming that you have at least a basic understanding of prophecy in the first place. If you are new to our Lord's Kingdom, I encourage you to study God's Word with urgency.
If you are a long-standing believer who has neglected these things, I encourage you to repent and get your priorities sorted out and study God's Word now.
Job says "I consider Your Word more than my necessary food."
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and hang in there!
