- Covid 19 virus is still spreading worldwide. Watch for this to level off. Watch for the infection rate to begin to decline. It will happen and soon. Watch for many leaders to turn to God. Some are!
- China is to lift lockdown on April 8th as 1.5 billion worldwide go into lockdown.
- This pandemic is going to take a large chunk out of world economic growth and set back nations and people already struggling.
- Interestingly the word “Corona” means “crown” it is also a fiery ring surrounding the sun visible at an eclipse. Does it symbolise a crown of fiery judgement?

Watchmen who spy with their little eye:
A major goal of The Prophetic Scroll (TPS) is to be ahead of the curve. It is to have eyes looking into the future. It is to hear the word of the Lord and to inform and warn of things to come.
Here at TPS you will find teaching and encouragement for your heart and your head. You will be kept safely in the arms of our Lord, through the work of the Spirit of God.
The spread and growth of the coronavirus is often represented as a curve in a graph, with the largest numbers at the peak of the curve.
I have some good news for you:
The coronavirus has run its course and is over! You might think I’m mad! Well, there are two issues here. Firstly, that is the sense I get from the word of the Lord. Secondly that is what the graphs and charts are saying.
Of course it’s not over in reality yet, but the curve in most places has peaked. You may surprised to know that China’s Wuhan Province where the virus started and killed many is already back to normal with all services, factories transport and industries back to normal operation. (Look it up) Other nations are seeing a flattening of the curve after the peak. A few are still seeing an increase.
We are to look out into the future and not right at our noses. Yes I do believe there is going to be a lot of difficulty ahead, but the human spirit has strong bounce-back ability.
Stock markets are always anticipatory of future economic fundamentals. They price in the future now. We have seen world markets crash and then crash again. But in the last week or so they have registered repeated record runs higher, including the largest ever one day point gain in history on the Dow.
Markets create many signals including the reliable “key reversal signal” which is a capitulation to the downside and a “V” shaped spike higher forming a number of higher highs on the charts. This is just what we have now.
Can the markets still go down? Yes they can take another hit, but the main, furious downside is over.
All the pessimists including Christian pessimists can only see the reality of sick, dying and dead people everywhere! They can’t see the light in the tunnel because they are the dark tunnel.
The mass media have created a no-man’s land riddled with mine-fields saying, ‘don’t resist our opinions’. They have created a fortified ‘city’ full of so-called giants of their own opinions.
Let’s put this into spiritual terms with our two good friends of antiquity – Joshua and Caleb.
Joshua and Caleb:
These were two of the twelve spies sent by Moses to spy out the Promised Land of Israel.
This story relates prophetically to Israel’s future salvation, and also applies to God’s promises for the Christian.
We should all know the story. All the spies saw the same thing which was a land flowing with milk and honey, but with big giants and fortified towns. Ten came back and accurately reported what they saw and thought. They said that it was impossible to defeat these giants and the fortifications.
Joshua and Caleb saw the same things but in faith, looked beyond and came back with an outrageous, radical, good report in light of all the bad things. It defied eyes, ears and logic!
We have exactly the same picture with David and Goliath, which speaks very much of Israel’s fight for survival today.
Joshua and Caleb refused to see themselves as submitted grasshoppers controlled by evil.
The ones who went into the Promised Land had wholeheartedly followed God.
The ten evil spies had significant influence. They held the majority consensus, because they thought they could see with their eyes. The Bible says that the caused the entire congregation to murmur. (Numbers 14:17-38)
The ten with the evil report led the entire camp of the children of Israel to banishment by God in the wilderness, where they all died of the plague. Joshua and Caleb were the ones to lead the new flock into the land.
The ten spies are represented in the mass-media. They see with eyes that cannot see.
Tragically, much of the church today not only carries the virus of the ten evil spies relating to Israel, they actually facilitate it with their anti-Semitism and replacement theology.
You must have spiritual eyes to hear God’s trumpet warnings, or the holy, golden, shining sword is coming your way fast. (Deuteronomy 32:41, Ezekiel 21:9)
I believe that’s not politically correct today to say a sword is coming! – Voetsak!
Two pretty neat watchmen!
The twelve spies were sent to spy out the land. Only two of the ten were God's watchmen.
●The word “spy” is Strong’s H8446 meaning to seek, search and explore.
●The word “watchman” is Strong’s H6822 meaning to keep watch, or to spy out and observe. Note that the meanings are almost identical.
Today we have many self-proclaimed watchmen. They are part of the ten evil spy network! They spy out what they see. They report on what they see and speculate with variables. They are repeatedly wrong. (I heard of one who recently claimed that the rapture would take place on Purim, because that’s when Jews get drunk in the streets! – What garbage!)
Some people are so thickly deceived that even if you show them the truth, they will still believe a lie. That is because deception is primarily an evil spirit, which becomes imbedded if not cut out.
So, if the Covid 19 story is on the way out, have we learned the lesson? Many have. Many are talking of national repentance. Many joined for urgent prayer and still are. But many have not. These are those who never will. They are the doomed ones. Please don’t be one!
How many large biblical abominations present in the nations, that led to their national curses will go? Very few will!
What is important and coming soon is the next round of catastrophic judgment on this world. This is because of the overall place we are in prophecy. It will speed up.
The truly blind media and their blind sheep have denied God and His word. They have by extension denied mankind the ability to see sin, wickedness and abomination.
►Here is a most powerful lesson for you in these days:
Deuteronomy 8:2 “The Lord your God led you all these forty years in the wilderness to humble you and test you, to know what was in your heart. Verse 16: He might humble you and test you to do you good in the end.”
Psalm 106:14-15 “They soon forgot His works, they did not wait for His counsel, but lusted exceedingly in the wilderness and tested God in the desert, so He gave them their requests, but sent leanness into their soul.”
Some of these end-time things are great surgical tools for your heart!
Psalm 71:20-21 “You have shown me great and severe troubles, You shall revive me again, and bring me up again from the depths of the earth. You shall increase my greatness and comfort me on every side.”
2 Kings 6:16 “Do not fear, for those that are with us are more than with them.” The Lord opened their eyes to see mountains full of chariots of fire all around Elisha!
Welcome to TPS – your very own Joshua and Caleb for today’s exciting and unique times!
Edition 4. 13th 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:
●Dire USA warning
●Why the Iran election result was no surprise
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.
●The US may stop supporting Israel at the UN. Obama says this may be the best way to punish Netanyahu because of his refusal to to meet his demands on the abolishment of settlements.(Israel Today June 1st)
●Obama reshuffles America's Middle Eastern allies
●US to send military team to Syria. This is to improve relations. But some analysts see it as a strategic move to further ring-fence Israel. (Reuters)
●Now the US tries to stop Israel from building a hotel on it's municipal owned land in Jerusalem, calling it a "settlement" (AP)
●Israeli PM says, "we will not stop settlements for natural growth, despite Obama's pressure" (Jerusalem Post)
●Obama says Iran has the right to have nuclear power (Washington Post June 2nd)
●Iran could have a nuclear bomb this year, says report in Israel Today (June 1st)
●Russian expert says nuclear bomb catastrophe "inevitable" (Professor Vladimir Kulagin, Moscow University)
●Iran now has enough low-grade uranium for a single nuclear bomb.(IAEA 5thJune)
●IAEA finds more uranium at second site in Iran (June 6th)
●Obama to Netanyahu: So, what about my peace plan? The US intends "strong arming" Israel into accepting their peace plan within two years. (Netanyahu aide)
●Israeli PM Netanyahu to make major policy speech within days. Hamas to make major policy announcement next week.
●Ahmadinejad wins Iran election.
Iran: The Iran election results were no surprise. Ahmadinejad is now back at the helm and ready to fulfil his ill-fated destiny. He believes that he is the forerunner to the coming of the Islamic Mahdi who will unite the Islamic world and form an army to defeat all the enemies of Islam.
His mystical pre-occupation with the so-called coming of the Mahdi and his desire to eliminate Israel places him in the same position as the Nazi dictator. This makes him an extremely dangerous character who could trigger all sorts of prophetic events.
Iran's Ahmadinejad seen skipping through the fields after his election win:
The headlines I have chosen above are only a small snippet of thousands all declaring much the same thing. When you see one or two headlines you may miss the significance and if you don't know at least the basics of Bible prophecy, you will definitely miss the significance.
I have deliberately chosen and presented these headlines like this, because they make the significance a lot clearer. It is not just this presentation though, there are so many other things all dove-tailing together now, that the situation is becoming a little more than URGENT. (Have a look at the headlines in previous editions as well, they add more weight to these issues).
America, be warned your days are numbered! "Mene, mene, tekel, upharsin" These strange words became known as the "writing on the wall " from God warning of Babylon's soon demise. Daniel interpreted them as, "God has numbered your days and brought you to an end, you are weighed in the balances and found wanting" Mighty unsinkable Babylon came to an end just after this.
Aspects of America could be described as modern Babylon. It's judgement is long overdue because it's modern Christians have become tolerant of all things evil. In the name of tolerance tyranny now awaits them. There has been one and only one reason why the USA has remained largely free, prosperous and secure in the face of their evil, and this is simply because they have been a bit more than a friend to Israel. They have the stood by Israel in their six wars since independence and in many other ways. God has blessed America for being Israel's primary friend and He has stayed long overdue execution for all their incredible evils. (God says if you bless Israel you will be blessed and if you cures Israel you will be cursed)
Now the story is changing before our eyes and it is changing fast! The one thing that has been the salvation of the USA is now being eroded. America, the writing is on the wall, for you now!
America's Obama is shifting allegiances in the name of world peace. He is not only turning his back on Israel, as he tries to befriend the Arab world, he is actually obstructing Israel's own future.
Another thing worth remembering is that peace means different things to different people. Peace to the world of Islam means, an Islamic world. Peace to Islam means surrender of everything that is not Islamic. Islam believes it is the final work of God and He is now finished with Moses and Jesus and therefore the Jews and the Christians have no legitimacy. You don't believe me? I dare you to research it!
Peace with the true, living God comes from knowing Him, being known by Him and following Him and His ways.
Don't get me wrong, I love America. It has done more for the world in terms of science, technology, medicine, evangelism, and just about everything you can think of, it's evils aside. But all of this is about to come crumbling down as they run headlong into the fury of God. No it won't happen in five minutes, but time is short!
The Bible declares that Gods anger will arise as the nations try to divide the land of Israel. This will bring war and not peace! (Joel 3) and dividing or "moving" Jerusalem will bring all nations into conflict (Zachariah 13)
It's not just America though, in fact they are late arrivals. Most of the nations of the world are now on this deadly road as they unite to pressurise Israel into a satanically inspired soon coming disaster. The nations of the European Union were the main instigators of the world's roadmap to peace, and have now been joined by the US.
Isn't it interesting that the EU headquarters as seen from above is in the shape of the satanic broken cross or so-called peace sign:
If you don't already know, let me remind you that this sign is not the peace -sign it is the hell-sign! It originates from satanic worship and occult practices where the arms of a cross are broken, representing rejection of the true cross and it's meaning.
The roadmap to peace is the roadmap to war:
Why then is the world's "roadmap" the path to war and not peace for the Middle East? Well, it's simple...God's word declares the land of Israel (all of it) was given by Him in an "eternal" covenant to the Jews. The covenant, which includes the blood line of our Jewish Messiah comes through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and not Ishmael (Arabs). Part of the plan of God for the close of the age involves the Jews in their land, coming to salvation and being the bearer of truth that they were originally called to be.
There is a often miss-applied portion of scripture in Romans 11 which speaks of the calling of God being without repentance. The correct application and context (derived from previous verses) is referring to the calling of God to Israel. It will be completed!
In the Bible we see the Abrahamic, Davidic covenants and others all with reference to the Jewish people in their God-given land and it's all for God's own grand purpose. Modern man's roadmap to peace is perhaps one the greatest deceptions of our day and flies in the face of God's choice.
Just have a look at these incredible portions of scripture relating to the land of Israel and Gaza! Talk about throwing a cat amongst the pigeons!
Joshua 15 speaks of the inheritance of the children of Judah which includes Gaza!
Amos 1:6,7 speaks of the destruction of Gaza because they (Philistines) tried to take it captive. vs13 widens this to include other Arab nations, who "will be destroyed because they tried to enlarge their territory" (The Philistines relate to the Palestinians. In fact in Greek the word Philistinos is the same as Palestinian)
Zech 9:5 and on speaks of the fact that Gaza will be very sorrowful and it further says that God will cut off the "pride of the Philistines"
Judges 2:1,2 "I led you from Egypt and brought you to the land which I swore to your fathers and said I will never break My covenant with you, and you shall make no covenant with the inhabitants of this land. You shall tear down their alters..."
This amazing portion of scripture foreshadows the terrible and tragic, soon coming peace treaty to be signed between Israel and the person who will be revealed then as the antichrist. This will launch the most severe judgements of God on the world ever known to man called the "tribulation". The first three and a half years will see terrible geological upheavals, with a dangerous socio-political peace and then all hell breaks out in every sphere for the remaining three and half years.
Ezekiel 11:17-19 "I will gather you from the nations and peoples where you have been scattered and I will give you the land of Israel...then I will put a new spirit within them and take out the stony heart out of their flesh"
A frightening portion of scripture declares that the person that will become the antichrist will "divide the land of Israel for gain" Dan11:39 This will most probably be related to the coming peace treaty.
Ps 83:4, "Come let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more." Oh yes, we will see!
The world has forgotten that the Bible also declares in Zechariah 51:19,20 "Israel is the tribe of His inheritance and you are my battle-axe and weapons of war, with you I will break the nations in pieces"
Zechariah 2:8 Speaking of Israel "He who touches you touches the apple of My eye"
Here is a very interesting snippet of information: The Nazi's tried to destroy the Jews and they were destroyed. The US actually helped in their destruction by putting an end to the second world war with an atom bomb or two. Germany was already finished by this stage, but the US was involved anyway. Very shortly afterwards, the US was involved in the most amazing fulfilment of prophecy by setting up the UN whose, first major act was to pass a resolution recognising a Zionist state...the nation of Israel. Yes that's right! The UN actually gave birth to the Israeli state.
A few days later the Arabs revolted and the war of independence broke out. A small ill-equipped rag- tag army crushed many invading Arab nations. The US came to Israel's aid then and in all the wars since. Israel with the help of God and the US won all six wars against incredible odds.
Now the story is changing fast as the US changes it's tune and the UN, the EU and the rest of the world all turn their backs on Israel.
We are now seeing the futile attempts of the whole world to bring about peace, which will result in catastrophic judgements from God and it's not far off!
Gods roadmap leads through the golden gate of His choosing into peace and glory now and in time to come.
I did say last time that I would present you this time with a teaching on the "the timing of the coming of our Lord and saviour. It is not quite ready, so you will get it next time.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and hang in there!
