|This ministry has a distinct kingdom vision, identifying with God’s call and plan for Israel and the church. My position is pre-trib! I was saved in 1976 while working as a war correspondent, journalist, photographer, artist and environmentalist. My calling is to share with you the great end-time dramas, to stand as a watchman and above all, to glorify my God.|
►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 17 November 17th 2009
In this edition:
●Wise words of old. (Part one)
Wise words of old for today
●This is a collection of some very powerful quotes relating to many things. They are from old-school preachers dating back from the 1700s to the early 1900s. None are from today's preachers and teachers. As you well, know I am no fan of modern preachers with few exceptions. Many of these quotes are shocking in today's terms, but this is because 'today' has moved so far away from yesterday. If these were appropriate hundreds of years ago, they are much more so today!
You can be part of the great apostasy or the great awakening. Both are gathering momentum today. To be part of the prophesied great apostasy (falling away from the faith) you need do nothing...just drift along with the flow. To be part of the great awakening, you need to set your heart and soul after our great Messiah with determined purpose and everything in you.
We are entering a time period where many things will be shaken. Ignorance will be the breading ground of great deceptions. The wrath of God, the wrath of the devil and the wrath of man will all hit the world together. To be ready and to be able to stand securely, you need a lot more than simply to know the truth. You need to have it forged and fired into the very core of your existence. To be safe and right with God you need a soft and broken heart before Him and to know deep spiritual truth backwards!
I've selected a very small handful of quotes from A.W Tozer, Watchman Nee and Charles Finney. They're in no particular order. These are from many books, perhaps a few hundred in all, which I've meticulously and lovingly digested over the last 30 years. I cut my spiritual teeth on the material from these guys and consider them my spiritual fathers. With the addition of Derek Prince. Paul the apostle said that it's good to have many instructors but few fathers.
I have so many of these quotes that from time to time I'll present you with more in some future editions. I'll space them out a fair bit because this is a departure from prophetic subjects, but nonetheless of great importance today.
Books and other publications by these three are available through the 'Resources' link at the top.
Jeremiah 6:16 "Ask for the old paths, where the good way is and walk in it; Then you will find rest for souls."
Tozer, Nee, Finney (below)
The words of life:
A.W Tozer (late 1800s) The Old Cross and the New and some other books: He was a prophet of his time, and a prolific author. His legacy reaches well beyond his grave and has impacted countless millions calling them to a deeper life in God.
"All unannounced and mostly undetected there has come in modern times a new cross into popular evangelical circles....From this new cross has sprung a new philosophy of the Christian life and a new type of meeting. The old cross would have no truck with the world. For Adam's proud flesh it meant the end of the journey. The new cross is not opposed to the human race, rather it's a friendly pal. It's the source of oceans of good clean fun and innocent enjoyment. It lets Adam live without interference. His life motivation is unchanged; he still lives for his own pleasure"
"God offers life, but not an improved old life. The life He offers is life out of death. It stands always on the far side of the cross. God salvages the individual by liquidating him and then raising him again to newness of life"
"Truth is the daughter of God. If you look for truth you may find comfort in the end. If you look for comfort, you'll get neither"
"Nothing less than the whole Bible can make us a whole Christian."
"Today we need those with a baptism of clear sight, who can see through the mists of confusion with prophetic vision"
"The neglected heart will soon be overrun with worldly thoughts, his life will soon become a moral chaos as the creeping wilderness takes over. Complacency is a deadly foe of spiritual growth"
"We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum."
"Refuse to be average. Let your heart soar as high as it will. Many Christians today have wasted their lives"
"The idea that this world is a playground and not a battleground has now been accepted by the vast majority of Christians...they are no different to dressed up drunks"
"Whatever a person wants badly and persistently enough will determine that person's character"
Sound Bible exposition is an imperative MUST in the church. Without it no church can be a New Testament church. Christianity today is man-centred and not God-centred"
"The way to deeper knowledge of God is through the lonely valleys of soul poverty and abnegation of all things."
"The thoughtful soul to solitude retires. Modern civilization is so complex as to make the devotional life all but impossible. It wears us out with multiplying distractions and destroys our solitude"
"The idolatrous heart assumes that God is other than He is, and substitutes for the true God one made after its own likeness. This God will conform to the image who created it - a monstrous sin. People today have modified God and created Him in their own image."
"Many today have an imaginary Christ to keep them satisfied, but they also have an imaginary salvation"
"Among the plastic saints of our times Jesus has to do all the dying and all we want is to hear another sermon about His dying. No cross for us, no dethronement, no dying. We remain king within the kingdom of mansoul and wear our tinsel crown with all the pride of a Caesar; but we doom ourselves to the shallows and weakness of spiritual sterility."
"Before the church goes into eclipse, there must first be a corrupting of her simple basic theology. The masses of her adherents come to believe that God is different from what He actually is; and that is heresy of the most insidious and deadly kind"
"Christianity has become so entangled with the world that millions never guess how radically they have missed the New Testament pattern. Compromise is everywhere. The world is whitewashed just enough to pass inspection by blind men posing as believers."
"There is scarcely anything so dull and meaningless as Bible doctrine taught for its own sake. Truth divorced from life is not truth at all"
"People who refuse to worship the true God now worship themselves with tender devotion. Every person is as holy as he wants to be"
"Too many Christians want to enjoy the thrill of feeling right, but are not willing to endure the inconvenience of being right"
"We become what we love"
"The Lord will not fully bless a man until He has fully conquered him."
"In Christ I have died yet I'm more alive now than before."
"I live here but I'm not at home here."
"I lose my life to save it."
"I am wisest when my reason is defeated."
Watchman Nee 1903 - 1972: The Normal Christian Life. The Salvation of the Soul. He was thrown into prison in China for his beliefs where he spent most of his life. Of the 100s of Nee books only one was written by him. All the others were collections of his notes smuggled out of prison. Prison authorities tore his tongue from his mouth in an attempt to silence him. He was a man of incredible suffering.
"Whatever is produced by the mind lacks spiritual power"
"Our end is God's beginning. Too many have gone too far for the world to use them and not far enough for God to use them. The Christian life is not a changed life but an exchanged life."
"Separation to God and from the world is the first principle of the Christian life."
"We will lose interest in the world and see it's doom and it in will lose interest in us when the power of the cross is at work in us."
"With complete consecration comes perfect peace. I want nothing for myself and everything for my Lord"
"Are you living for the Lord or for yourself. Rest lies in looking to the Lord and not ourselves. It's a great thing when I discover I am no longer my own, but His"
"The soul renounced shall abound in the boundlessness of God's life."
"There is nothing more tragic than to come to the end of one's life and then know that we have been on the wrong course"
"Unless self love is abandoned the believer will forever shrink back when called to take up the cross for Christ"
"God's way of deliverance from sin is altogether different from man's way. Man's way is to try and suppress sin by seeking to overcome it. God's way is to crucify the sinner"
"He who is able to accept everything gladly from the Lord - including dryness and barrenness and completely disregard self, is he who lives for Him"
Charles Finney 1792 - 1875: Revival Lectures (No preacher since New Testament times has ever had as many converts remain faithful until death as those converted under Finney)
"Christians are more to blame for the lack of revival than sinners for not being converted"
"Revival pre-supposes that the church has sunk so low. Revival is then a return of the church from its backslidden state. Only then can sinners be converted. True revival breaks the power of the world and sin over Christians. The salvation of sinners follows revival in the church"
"When a worldly spirit is in the church it is seen in Christians conforming to the worlds ways in dress, talk, reading of novels and their music, it shows that they are far from God. Even their prayer is an abomination to God"
"Today's Christians are half-converted and their conversion is of their own minds.".
"The unsaved are affected by the conviction of truth seen in its believers."
"Christians are to testify to the guilt and danger of sinners, the reality of hell, the necessity of a holy life, denying self and the soon coming of the Lord"
"Christians today make the impression that Christ loves the sinner so much and with such compassion, that they have nothing to fear. The church has given many a false comfort and hope."
"All sinners are on the very verge of hell and in a danger far greater than they can imagine. The sinner must be made to feel distressed. The comfort full of death relieves this blame."
"God comes to the sinner with pardon in one hand and a sword in the other; repent and live or refuse and perish."
"If Christians accommodate a love for the world, they make the salvation of the world impossible"
"Most ministers today are rocking the cradle of a sleepy church, compromised with the world"
"Today's Christians make their vows to God and then go and bow down at the shrine of fashion and other worldly pursuits and then wonder why there is no revival. Christians declare by their conduct that there is no truth in the gospel"
"Millions of souls will meet you on their judgement day and if permitted to speak, would curse you for leading them to hell by your practical denial of the truth"
"The evils of gay balls must be condemned"
"Revival will cease when the doctrine shifts from truth, when there is disunity in the church, when the church no longer honours the Sabbath and when the church takes the neutral ground on morals."
"You can't obey God and error. The church needs more division. If they are not agreed on truth keep them out."
"True doctrine is indispensible to growth in grace. Rightly instructed and trained the Christian will take the right road, if not they will backslide."
"A want of entertainment and a lack of spiritual conversation is evidence of a backslidden heart."
"Where there is no revival it is all the fault of the church."
In closing, I took this picture of this magnificent giant Baobab tree some 3000 years old and 40m in circumference. (There is another similar tree in the 'God's Garden section) To stand strong through time in the face of many storms, droughts, and upheavals we need to be deeply rooted in the things of our Messiah!
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace!
