- 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 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!
