►We have now reached 46 million regular visitors.
►Next Edition, Lord willing: "Peace or torment"
- Sovereignty / annexation of Judea and Samaria now on hold. Will proceed later in July according to Israeli government sources. Opposition to it grows.
- Virus growth continues to expand at alarming rate. Lockdown and restrictions return to some areas.
These will change on Sundays or as the Lord leads.
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.”
Psalm 5:10 “Pronounce them guilty, O God! Let them fall by their own counsels. Cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions, for they have rebelled against you.”
Psalm 83:3 “They have taken crafty council against Your people, and consulted together against Your sheltered (treasured) ones.”
Psalm 64:2 “Hide me from the secret plots of the wicked, from the rebellion of the workers of iniquity.”
Isaiah 60:2-3 “ Darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people, but the Lord will arise over you (Israel) and His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your light.”
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 14. October 18th 2009
In this edition:
●To judge or not to judge
Principles of judgement
"Don't judge, don't you know the Bible says don't judge" How many times have you heard that?
The tragic issue here is that you can be very sure that those who say this don't know anything at all about the Bible and are in a very dangerous place of deception and rank ignorance. In fact they are preparing the way for the antichrist.
This really is a wonderful subject. It is clean and full of glory, holiness and righteousness.
Let's have a look now at what the Bible does say, what it doesn't say and the correct application. We'll also look at how the miss-application has ruined the world and will set the stage for coming cataclysmic judgements of God on this evil world.
If I've heard it once I've heard it a thousand times..."don't judge, just walk in love" The problem with this is that this is equated with tolerance, which is the last evil virtue of a collapsing society!
The verse that says "don't judge lest you be judged" uses the word judgement in the continuous present tense, which is only evident in the original Greek. In other words it is saying don't be a continuous nit-picker over every little thing.
I was sitting in a restaurant the other day and this group of women were sitting at a table next to mine. They were continuously judging. "Did you see what she was wearing, did hear what she said, how could she" and so they went on for an hour. This is what the verse is talking about.
The key for us in the area of judging can be found with our Messiah Himself. Jeshua / Jesus says in John 5:30 "I judge and My judgement is righteous because I seek not My own will." This is the key. If you are out there trying to prove others wrong and yourself right you are as guilty as the other. If you are putting others down all the time and exalting yourself you are wrong. But if you are standing for the truth of God, it's a different story. Judgement from a point of view of pride or self-elevation is wrong.
John 7:24 "Don't judge according to outward appearance, but judge with righteous judgement." In other words, don't worry about what she was wearing. righteous judgement involves standing up for God and his Word.
1 Corinthians 2:15 "He who is spiritual judges all things" This implies judging into many matters, but only by those who are spiritual. In other words a baby believer has no business getting involved in judgement.
The above two verses need no explanation, but it's worth saying that most of the modern church today has laid this aside. This is the reason the church is so divided and compromised today.
It is largely because there is no more judgement in the church that a lot of it has lost its calling. Much of the church now tolerates most worldly things that have in the past brought the judgement of God on the world and will again do so.
Romans 1:1,2 declares that God's judgement is "according to truth"
The principle of judgement is actually love in action. The children of Israel went through the Red Sea while the judgement of God closed in on Egyptian opposition. Judgement is punishment yes but it is love and grace in the sense that it creates purity and holiness. God uses judgement to save and bring victory to His own.
Judgement in the church:
The duty of the church is to keep itself lined up with truth and to set the truth-standard as a banner for all to see. A part of the church will keep the standard which is the Word of God and judge between right and wrong keeping itself pure.
As we move closer to the coming of our Lord and Saviour, the attacks on the church will intensify. "Truth will be cast down in the street" Isaiah 19:14.
1Corinthians 1:10 "Speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but be perfectly joined in the same mind and judgement"
1Peter 4:17 "Judgement is to begin in the house of God"
1 John 4:1 "Don't believe every spirit, but test the spirits"
A simple reading through the book of Acts shows clearly that much of the work of the early church leadership was to judge and keep error out.
It was the introduction of error that produced the dark ages.
Judgement and discernment are very closely associated and are desperately needed today. I encourage you to read edition no 11 which deals with Gods view, opinions and judgement on the church.
Judgement in line with truth destroys error and sin while bringing unity and maintaining the glory of God.
Error and sin is not corrected by discussion and argument, but by judgement according to truth.
Judgement on a individual level:
One of the most powerful and glorious factors of the believers life is that we have been judged. The cross has done its deadly work and created within us a pure clean new life in the spirit at the new birth. But our lives also have a soul realm which has to be renewed daily. Here judgement is our own responsibility. "Judge yourselves that you be not judged" This relates to our daily lives as we walk through this evil world. It relates to repentance of sin.
Today repentance from sin is not easy, simply because many believers don't even know what sin is. it has been so watered down and made so acceptable by spineless preachers. There is no standard or absolutes anymore. Everything is variable and relative in today's evil world.
I once got my 4x4 vehicle stuck in thick mud after a rain storm in a desert. We had to dig it out. I was covered in this thick stinking mud, which dried on my skin. There was no water around for 500kms. I felt dirty. In fact it affected my mood as well. Finally we made it to the camp site where a good shower cleaned everything off.
The feeling was incredible. I was clean, so I could now go on in peace! This simply illustrates what self judgement does. It cleans us spiritually, sets us right with God and lets us become a pure vessel of His glory.
Only people that live in darkness, live in the world peacefully. In the glory of God's light no one can live in sin. God brings beauty and joy and peace out of the ashes of judgement.
The cross brings a believer deliverance from the world the flesh and the demonic. Only an enormous fool goes into eternity trusting in himself
In fact the power of the cross enables you to break what you were unable to break or overcome. It brings deliverance and victory.
Judgement relating to the world:
Isaiah 26:9 "When His judgements are in the world, people will learn righteousness.
Hosea 4:1 "There is no truth, mercy or knowledge of God in the land" The rest of this portion of scripture lists the symptoms: "Swearing lying, killing, stealing, adultery, no restraint, bloodshed after bloodshed. The land mourns, authority is questioned...My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge"
God always judges sin. For believers this has already happened in the form of the cross and self judgement as we go on. For unbelievers there awaits the fearful Great White Throne judgement from which all unbelievers will be cast into hell. For the world at large, due its ever increasing sin, it is about to go into the most severe forms of judgements the world has ever seen. In the past God judged the world for its sin of homosexuality on a few occasions. He judged the world for its general wickedness on a few other occasions. He judged Israel for her rebellion on many occasions.
What is coming very soon will put all the above to shame.
One great purpose of judgement is to create an environment of holiness. So although judgement itself is a negative the outcome is positive and is in fact love in action.
Think of it like this. If we had no judicial system there would be anarchy. The sending of one bad criminal to jail purifies the environment a little. So the coming monumental judgements of God will purify the universe and fill it with the glory of God.
The presence of God is incompatible with sin and evil. You either go through the cross to purity, or into hell which, in the process purifies the world of all sin and evil.
The judgement of God on this world is about to begin. It will start with forerunners and intensify through the seven year tribulation period to the cataclysmic final conflict of the ages. Many in this time period will refuse to repent, blame God and continue in rebellion, resulting in ever increasing judgements, but an enormous number will repent and come to salvation in this time period.
It's worth bearing in mind that judgement produces great opportunities for the gospel. When God shakes everything that can be shaken, everything that people put their security in shakes and falls. This causes many to look to unshakable eternal security...The Kingdom of our Great God, Lord and Messiah.
For the believer, glory lies on the far side of the cross. The unbeliever is on this side of the cross and awaits a terrifying future judgement.
For additional study on the subject please read:
Eternal Judgement by Derek Prince
The Spirit of Judgement by Watchman Nee
In closing here is a composite relating to the two comings of our Lord. He came the first time as the Lamb of God, to be judged condemned and slaughtered in our place. He is coming again soon as King of the universe, the Lion of Judah to judge, condemn and purify the world of all the unsaved and all sin.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and hang in there!
