- Iraq (the home of Babylon) is reported to be lining up to make peace with Israel.
- There will be no talk of, or deal relating to the Temple Mount at this signing.

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.
18th September 2020
Shabbat Shalom to all!
Watch the watchmen:
But first: Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s prayer meeting, “The Return” will be held on the Washington Mall, Washington DC, on the 26th September. This day is known as Shabbat Shuvah. Interestingly the Bible reading for the day is, “Return O Israel, to the Lord your God.”(Hosea 14:2-10 Micah 7: 18-20 Joel 2:15-27) It’s all centred on a global call for the church to return to the ways of God, and for Israel’s return to Messiah.
Today is the beginning of Rosh Hashanah / Feast of Trumpets, depending on the sighting of the new moon. ●This is NOT the rapture time and start of the tribulation.
The current peace efforts between Israel and some Arab nations is NOT the final antichrist peace deal - not by any means. What they are is incremental peace efforts.
This is NOT the “peace and safety, then sudden destruction” verse coming about. That verse relates to the Daniel 9:27 peace deal and the tribulation.
But these things collectively are important in that they present a new dawn for the Middle East. The knock-on effects and influence of these peace efforts are causing others to want to jump on the band wagon too.
Because these are such critical and dangerous times, this is a more important time than ever to be led correctly by men of God who are led by the Spirit and have a history of accuracy and stability. There are many amongst the riff raff.
So many wannabe watchmen and teachers are leading people astray with inaccurate, wrong pronouncements. Some are so outrageous! A watchman of the Lord is not one who watches for possibilities. He knows where to look and what to watch for and is led by the Spirit of God, therefore he is right.
I was given some “100% for sure” information in charts and numbers and various things as to why this would be the rapture time – for sure 100%! It didn’t sit right. When checking it out myself nothing added up!
Because a blind, always-wrong watchman says something is a sign; that does not make it so, by any means.
Being wrong destroys your authority and credibility, and damages the prophetic word and the faith of others, especially new believers.
Being wrong on major biblical things means one thing for sure – absolutely: You have not heard from God and you speak your own opinions.
The Spirit led teacher / watchman will have a history of godly stability and is therefore trustworthy.
Discernment is more critical than ever in the face of fast growing deception.
Ezra 3:13 (Temple rebuilt) “The people could not discern the noise of the shout of joy from the noise of the weeping of the people...”
Error becomes an immovable mountain if not dealt with, because it is formed and secured on the pillar of pride.
Spirit led, and inspired knowledge, understanding and wisdom endures and produces godly fruit.
One way to know a false teacher: When brought to correction, they will turn on you because you won’t join them in propping up their pride!
The Spirit of God in your heart is the umpire. He brings peace when you are on the right track. But you need the baptism of the Spirit. If not your umpire is you, yourself.
The condition of the end-time church:
There is a powerful prophetic message for the end-time church hidden in the messages to the seven churches in Revelation 2 & 3. They were seven historic churches. All seven contain truth for us, but prophetically, they also plot the course of church history.
The first three churches, Ephesus, Smyrna and Pergamos speak of the times gone by. The last four plot the course of the end time church and run concurrently. They are Thyatira, representing the Catholic and other orthodox churches. (They are cast into the tribulation) Sardis is the church that has a “name to live but is dead”. They are told that Lord will come upon them as a thief and they won’t know when! This represents the denominational Spirit-less churches. (With a few exceptions) Then comes the glorious church – the church of Philadelphia. They have the key of David, opening the doors to the Jews. (Isaiah 22:22) This church keeps the word and is promised to be kept out of the tribulation. Finally we have the lukewarm church of Laodicea, which is spiritually blind. God “vomits them out of His mouth.” “Laodicea”: Strong’s G2993, “Laodikeia” From two root words: ‘Laos’ = people and ‘Dike’ =Ruling. This is the people ruled” or “people/self opinionated church.
The pictures below show all that remains of Laodicea today. The Spirit of God flew away from this church and God spat them out of His mouth. (Revelation 3:16) The pillars still standing represent truth, but all else is gone.
1 Timothy 3:15 (Amp) “You know how people must conduct themselves in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and stay – the prop and support of the truth.”
So, what we see here is a very powerful and accurate picture of the end-time church. Some of it is the walking dead. Some are a horror of evil. Some are cast into the tribulation, spat out and condemned. And right in the midst is the church who keeps and loves the word and is pro-Israel.
Bear in mind that there is a terrible, tragic church and a glorious, growing powerful church side by side in these days. Don’t get tunnel vision for just one side of the coin.
The Bible speaks of a great end-time revival (the latter rain) in the last days. (Joel 2:23, Hosea 6:3) and in many other verses.
A major prophetic mark of the times is increasing deception in the church. You can’t have increasing deception without increasing deceivers and that’s where the problem lies.
Satan used deception to try to stamp out the early church because he knew it would wreck his kingdom. Now we have the same scenario again. Sometimes you have to be severe in your dealings.
Acts 13:9-11 “Then Saul, also called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit looked intently at him and said, ‘O full of all deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all unrighteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord? And now indeed the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you shall be blind, not seeing the sun for a time, and immediately a dark mist fell upon him...”
It is most important to know prophetic things to come, but also the timing of those things, to avoid deception. You must see with spiritual eyes today.
A Spirit-led and inspired watchman / teacher is always restrained in what he sees and says. He is led by the restrainer.
We are now at the start of the new Hebrew year 5781. It will end and change to 5782 on Rosh Hashanah 2021. That is September 7th - 8th 2021. That’s a very important date!!
This year, 5781 is going to be year like no other. It’s going to be a wild time of stress, strain and pressure. But in the midst there will be islands of peace amongst the pillars of truth.
The good news is that we are on the verge of great revival. We are seeing it in many nations of the east. Of course there will always be churches deteriorating and dying.
Many of those who have gone off into a ditch will repent and return. Many will continue to slip and slide further away.
As we enter the beginning of these wild times, I want to assure you that The Prophetic Scroll will be your place of spiritual stability and rest.
Edition 5. 22nd 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 Temple in the news!
● The soon coming Temple on the Temple Mount.
●So many prophetic things dove-tailing together at once!
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.
●Former US president Carter says he loves the Palestinians so much and will encourage Obama to remove Hamas from the "terrorist organisation" list. Attempt to blow up Carter foiled as he entered Gaza.
●Now Iran's Ahmadinejad, joins the world leader chorus calling for a new world order. He says the US is in decline and a dramatic new deal is needed. He makes agreement between Russia, China and Iran to trade using their own currencies and not the dollar any more. (Press TV June17)
●Brazilian president calls for a new world order (June 17 AP)
●Russia to increase nuclear weapons four fold. Obama launches effort to reduce US nuclear arms (Msnbc)
●Obama promises the Palestinians, "Jerusalem will be yours" (Newsvine). Netanyahu says Jerusalem will never be divided. (Jerusalem Post)
●Only 6% of Americans now consider Obama pro-Israel (Jerusalem Post 19 June)
●Netanyahu says Obama will try to internationalise the Temple Mount. (Arutz Sheva)
●Jewish leaders are worried Obama will force us to divide Jerusalem and will cede the Temple Mount to the Palestinians. (Ynet News June 5)
●Netanyahu wants to re-build the Temple on the Temple-mount, says Palestinian sheik. He says there was never a Jewish temple on the mount. (June18 Arab News.com)
●Islamic leader Raed Salah says at Haifa University conference, "Netanyahu wants to rebuild the Temple. If they want us to give up our holy sites, we would rather die and we will welcome such death." (Ynet News 17 June)
The calls for a new world order and a new form of currency are growing almost daily now. What is happening is that this is "priming" the world to accept it when it becomes a major move of the devil. After all, look how often it has been spoken of and look at how many world leaders support it! Perhaps what is most shocking is that nobody so much as raises an eye- brow anymore. This says to me that, as in the days of Noah, untold millions or even billions are on the very brink of hell.
I outlined this in a previous edition, so I'll just briefly explain again. Building a new world order of peace is exactly what the Babylonians tried to do. God destroyed it than and will do so again, only this time the coming destruction will be a lot more widespread. The Bible shows that this new world order will work initially, but then all hell will break out further down the line. You need to build God's way and using His plans. Peace without the Prince of Peace at the helm will never endure!
The soon coming Temple:
Before we go on let me dismiss a myth being taught in many churches now. This dangerous deception is actually part of the whole "replacement theology" doctrine, which in a nutshell presumes that the church had replaced Israel and as such there is no place for Israel and the Jews besides them becoming part of the church.
No sir! God has a wonderful plan for both Jew and gentile that has distinctly different characteristics.
Many churches teach that God has no need of another temple, because we the church are that temple. They go on to teach that there is no need for the re-introduction of temple sacrifices, because our Messiah was the sacrificial lamb.
Yes true we are living temples and He was our once for all sacrifice, but we need to understand the prophetic scriptures. The Bible declares that God will bring the Jews back to the land of Israel first in their blindness and then this veil of blindness will be lifted and they will see that their Messiah has indeed paid the full price for redemption.
Besides this the re-introduction of sacrifices in the Temple may be a backward looking Holy convocation similar to our communion. We break the body and drink the blood of our Messiah in communion, but we do this as a convocation looking back to the full and complete work of our Messiah. No we don't believe that the actual breaking of bread and drinking of wine saves us. It was His sacrifice that saves us. In a similar way this could be what will be meant by the re-introduction of sacrifices in the coming temple.
Today there 12 groups working in preparation for the rebuilding. Even genetic line testing has been done to verify those that would become the priests. God anointed Aaron and his sons to be the priests. Aarons family name was HaCohen. Today the Cohen lineage has been traced back to Aaron!
They have already re-instituted the Sanhedrin, just recently. The job of the Sanhedrin will be to decide on the exact location of the new temple and to oversee the entire process.
Preparations for the coming temple to be built on the Temple Mount are well under way. In fact every item to be used has already been made and is simply waiting for the day. Here are some pictures from the Temple Institute of some of these items. On the left is David's harp, then is the pure gold Menorah (60kgs of pure gold) and inset is the pure gold crown (tzitz) just completed, to be worn by the High Priest in the temple. All the other temple items, implements, Holy vessels, garments etc have been made perfectly according to Jewish law. They can be seen on the Temple Institute's web site.
The Ark of the Covenant was the only object in the Holy of Holies in the temple. There are a dozen stories around of what happened to it. I think the most probable is that which is upheld by the Temple Institute, who say that after King Josiah had it removed fearing it's capture, it was hidden in a chamber deep beneath the Temple Mount. They maintain that its exact location is known.
An exact replica of the Ark of the covenant:
The Temple Mount:
Could this be a before and after situation? Here is an artist's mock-up of the new temple (below). Note the golden gate at the extreme right of the wall. This is the gate which the Bible says will be closed until the Messiah comes and walks through it into the temple at His second coming. The golden gate has been sealed shut for hundreds of years. The Muslims did this believing that this would prevent this portion of scripture from being fulfilled! The top picture is of the current dome of the rock on the Temple Mount. The bottom picture is the artists impression of the soon-coming temple.
I think what is interesting about both of these pictures is that they have a very stormy sky! We are going to see a lot more big storms over this issue!
The current dome of rock has the words "God has no Son" around the inside, cast in stone.
Ps125:2,3 "The sceptre of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous forever."
Today the world's attention is pointing to and zooming down from Israel to Jerusalem to the Temple Mount. This will be a growing centre of conflict, ultimately resulting in the manifestation of the Glory of God
There is of course one remaining major issue at stake, with the potential for a major conflict and this is the exact location of the new temple. This will be a major obstacle, because of Muslim domination of the Temple Mount today, but it's worth remembering that God has worked side by side with Israel on many occasions in the face of major odds and obstacles. The story of David and Goliath comes to mind.
Goliath the 666 enemy:
Oh, and by the way that story is very interesting. Goliath was six cubits tall, had six pieces of armour and had a sword weighing six hundred shekels. In terms of type and shadow, Goliath who represents the satanic enemies of Israel was therefore attached to 666, while tiny (in comparison) David, who represents Israel won the victory, with God's help. The modern David and Goliath battle has not ended, but I know won and who wins in the end!
All that remains of the last temple (above)...the Western Wall on the side of the Temple Mount.
What the Bible says about the coming third Temple:
Amos 9:11,12 and repeated in Acts 15:16 (relating to the restoration of Israel in the last days) "I will raise up the tabernacle of David which has fallen down and repair its damage. I will raise up the ruins and rebuild it as in the days of old. vs15 "I will plant them in their land and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord."
Revelation 11:1,2 speaking of the soon coming tribulation period, "Rise and measure the temple of God and the alter and them that worship therein, but the court that is outside the temple do not measure it, for it has been given to the gentiles and they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty two months"
2Thes 2:1,4 Let no one deceive you by any means, for that day will not come unless the falling away comes first and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition...who sits as God in the temple of God showing himself that he is God." vs 8 "And then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will consume with the brightness of His coming"
Isaiah 2:1-3 "Now it shall come to pass in the latter days, that the mountain of the Lords house shall be established on the top of the mountains and shall be exalted above the hills and the nations shall flow to it, many shall say come and say let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob..."
The Bible teaches that the antichrist will declare himself as God in the temple. It also teaches that our Lord, at His second coming will go straight to the Temple and destroy the antichrist. Believe what you like, there will be a temple on the Temple Mount soon...one of the great signs of the soon coming of our Messiah.
What is very important here is that we are not far off from these things being fulfilled. As with previous editions, I am drawing your attention to the urgency of the time. You can disregard all of these things...at your own peril!
It really is amazing how so many things are dove-tailing together and starting to fall into place like a giant jigsaw puzzle. The picture is becoming more and more clear and the time is getting shorter. Please go back and look at previous editions and note how many prophetic things are lining up.
The world today is being primed for the soon arrival of its lord and god, Satan himself, who will manifest as the antichrist god of peace. Thankfully there are more and more believers being primed for the soon arrival of our great God King and Saviour!
The powers of deception are great and growing. We are fast entering a period which will see a growing outpouring of the spirit of antichrist and the Spirit of our Lord, King and Saviour. I appeal to you from the bottom of my heart, don't underestimate the evil powers at work and do soften your heart to our Lord and His word and ways.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and hang in there!
