|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 20 December 6th 2009
In this edition:
●Coming great deceptions.
Truth and error travel the same highways:
There is a principle evident in the scriptures especially in Proverbs. The Bible speaks of knowledge, understanding and wisdom. Knowledge is the intake of information, understanding is the digesting of it and wisdom is the application of it.
Knowledge on its own can be dangerous and puff you up in pride, but when it's being done in the spirit, this knowledge becomes revelation knowledge. The original word for knowledge is gnosis, but the word epi-gnosis means knowledge that is above ordinary knowledge.
My job in these editions is to bring you knowledge, which has come to me over a long period of time. It is to me epi-gnosis. It is your job to take it further and transform it to into understanding and wisdom.
There is one very important issue that we need to know in our pursuit of knowledge, understanding and wisdom and this is; It is impossible to know God or His ways outside of His family. If you are not born of the Spirit of God, all the knowledge in the world will still land you in hell.
The Bible declares that the things of the Spirit are spiritually discerned. We need to go through the cross of Calvary to enter the family of God and then we still need to apply the cross to the realm of our intellect. This is the way the knowledge and truth of God comes to us.
To give us further access to the deeper things of God we need to be baptised in water and the spirit. The foundation of salvation is like a tripod and we need all three legs. The new birth, adult water baptism, and spirit baptism. If one or more legs are missing the tripod will fall over.
Isn't it interesting how many believers with one or two of these legs missing just can't see the impassable gulf between the world and the kingdom of God.
The ways of deception:
Deception has spiritual roots but it grows in the ground of ignorance.
Truth, on the other hand, is always rooted in the knowledge, understanding and wisdom of God.
The first thing that deception always does is it obscure the cross. When the cross is obscured, the things and ways of God become nebulous and variable. When the cross is obscured, the ways of the world, the flesh, and the demonic become strong, simply because the application of the cross into our lives on a daily basis, breaks and separates us from the power of the world the flesh and the demonic.
When the cross is obscured our minds becomes the playground of all sorts of great ideas...all devoid of God.
When the cross is obscured, people become very worldly, filled with the sins of the flesh and a home for the demonic. When the cross is obscured, try as you much as you like, but you can't see that Satan is the god of the world and the ways of the world.
When the cross is being applied into our lives we receive sight to see clearly and we receive the power to walk in victory.
Today deception is growing on all fronts. It is becoming very powerful and widespread. In many instances it is blatant and in your face. In some cases it is subtle and lurks like a snake in waiting for its prey. Deception is dangerous in all its forms and has immense power.
It is a surprising and shocking thing to read what God thinks of the church, as revealed in the seven letters in the Revelation. Here we see just how successful deception becomes, with many churches falling into the trap of the devil. (Please read edition 11 for more on this)
Deception is essentially a spirit. With this being the case, it's almost impossible to identify it or deal with it outside of the gifts of the Spirit. 1 John 4: 1-6 "Do not believe every spirit but test the spirits, whether they're of God...We are of God and he who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error."
Candidates for deception:
The proud: Personal pride or ego will blind you to the things of God. Pride is essentially trust in self. Humility before God and His Word always gives clarity of spiritual sight. How can you have sight and understanding if God is resisting you. James 4:6 "God gives grace to the humble and resists the proud" Jeremiah 17:9 "The heart is deceitful above all things and is desperately wicked."
The self seeking: James 3:14 "If you have envy, self seeking in your hearts...this wisdom is worldly, soulish and demonic"
The ignorant: Ignorance is a playground for demons. 2 Corinthians 11.14 "Satan transforms himself into an angle of light." In this day and age we need to have spiritual discernment and insight into the fact that Satan can and does appear in many forms. Ignorance of the prophetic word will also set you up for deception. In fact ignorance is one of the curses which comes upon people for failure to obey God's Word. Deuteronomy 28:28. The Lord will strike you with blindness, madness and confusion of heart. This is brought out further in Hosea 4:1-6 which is an amazing discourse on the rise or fall of a nation. It says "Because there is no truth mercy or knowledge of God in the land, the land will mourn...My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge."
Deception of customs and traditions in the church:
False doctrines and idolatry:
There are so many false doctrines in the church today, it would take a book to deal with them all. Some of the big ones that are hugely damaging include replacement theology. These are playgrounds of demons.
Colossians 2:8 "See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception according to the traditions of men".
2 Peter 2:1,2 "There will be false teachers and prophets among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies...and many will follow their destructive ways, because of who the way of truth will be blasphemed".
The way and plan of God for the church is to be in unity. There is only one church. Our Messiah doesn't have many different bodies growing from His neck all divided (denominations) from each other.
1 Corinthians 1: 10 This condemns all sectarianism (denominationalism) as sin! We are to be "perfectly joined together in the same mind and judgement, speaking the same thing" Some may be thinking now that you can't believe I just said that. Well no I didn't...God did!
Sectarianism, denominationalism and division is deception.
Calvinism, Catholicism and other denominations which all have their own different divided sectarian beliefs and ways are all deceived. How can God be divided against Himself?
Bibles: (I will do a separate edition on this some time soon as it is a huge and very important subject)
The Bible is the Word of God or is it? Yes it is in it's original form. It is absolutely vital and of major importance to all true believers who love our Lord. Wouldn't it be logical then that Satan, who is the chief counterfeiter would want to bring confusion into the Bible itself.
Today there are many differing Bibles around. In fact choosing a Bible could be like walking through a mine field.
Very few people know this but as the Spirit of God moved over a group of people who compiled the Word of God, so the spirit of deception moved on another group of people to produce Spirit-less Bible. The two are irreconcilable.
An early church conference dealing with the Byzantine manuscripts (20,000 surviving) became the canon of scripture, inspired by God. The second was the Alexandra conference which authorised manuscripts which were essentially re-written by Origen and viewed as corrupt.
Bibles originating from Byzantine are the truth. Then a latin version came about and then The King James Version in English (which has some minor translational issues) The New King James version, which by-passes the latin version and goes back to the root of the the original manuscripts but is in modern English. It is the best by far.
Bibles originating in the corrupt Alexandra manuscripts include the New International version and many other modern Bibles.
The New International Version yields to modernism. It has 64,000 words omitted (compared to the Byzantine manuscripts) Many of these omissions and changes relate to major doctrines. It has numerous verses completely removed. Revelation 22:18 warns against changing the Word. Deuteronomy 4:2 and 12:32 also warns of the same thing.
The NIV will soon have a newer version called TNIV. (Today's NIV) This new version has even more changes including a host of changes making it gender-neutral. References to the Son, Father, He, Him and thousands of others have been removed.
The NIV is an exercise in translational treason and has led to much deception today.
You may think these issues are not important. They are the seeds of deception and error, which are becoming more and more dangerous as we move on towards the close of the age.
Very few Christians today know their Bibles never mind which ones are right.
Let me share with you a tragic example.
A friend of mine a while ago came running in with a big smile on his face yelling: "Did you hear...they've found out that Jesus was married and had kids" It just so happens that this individual doesn't know his Bible at all.
Isaiah 59: 14 "Truth is fallen in the street"
Believer, if you love our Lord, you need to love His Word as well. 2 Thessalonians 2:10 Speaks of those that "God will send strong delusion so that they believe the lie, because they didn't receive the love of the truth."
Romans 1: 18 is one of the few verses of scripture in which the wrath of God is evoked. "For the wrath of God is revealed against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness."
At the end of the day, deception is always the fault of the recipient. God has given us the answer, which is His Word and the tools needed to walk in truth and victory.
Deception is progressive. This is just the same as our walk with our Lord. It is progressive as well.
Luke 21: 8 "Take heed that you are not deceived"
Daniel 8:25 The coming of the antichrist will be shrouded in deception. "Through his cunning he will cause deception to prosper under his hand."
Deceptions of the world:
The Blue Beam Project will deceive many. Essentially, its a technology simulated second coming. Tests have already been done involving a holographic projection of a "Christ Image" Blue Beam promotes a new world order, one world religion. Holographic images projected from satellites of Christ, Mohamed, Buddha and others will 'merge' into one to produce a new 'One God'
The first step will be to cause a collapse of archaeological and other scientific understanding by bringing in supposed new discoveries that will falsify evidence already in existence supporting the Bible. The purpose will be to cause the masses to reject their foundational beliefs and undermine them, paving the way for a new multi-faith God encompassing all beliefs in a new powerful globalist movement.
The second stage will be a huge world-wide simultaneous staging of optical holograms and lasers with sound in 3D. NASA is involved secretly at this stage. These strong holograms will give the appearance that they have come from the sky, when in fact they will have been projected from satellites. This new unique divinity will in fact be the devil at work. He will explain that the Bible has been misinterpreted and misunderstood on a massive scale, setting the stage for his acceptance.
Some of you may be wondering if there was something wrong with the pizza I've just eaten. This is just ridiculous you say. Oh yes, I say! Well then please tell me why it has been so incredibly easy for someone like dan brown to deceive untold millions of Christians with his "Jesus was married and had kids" story.
By the way, if Jesus was married and had kids, then that blood line is still around today. If you know your Bible the blood of our Lord was supernatural. It was pure and without the Adamic sin-line in it. This sets the stage for someone in our day to declare that he is the new Messiah being the continuation of the pure blood line of Jesus.
It is only the blood of Jesus that cleanses from sin. Can you see the deceptive power of the devil in dan brown? The world stage is now set for another Christ to declare that he has supernatural powers originating in the blood line of Jesus.
The Blue Beam Project may sound out of this world, but actually its exactly the sort of thing of the devil would do to set the stage for his entrance. It may itself be a big deception.
Weather it comes off this way or not isn't really the issue, what is of critical importance is that need to have ourselves well armed and prepared to stand in the face of many coming deceptions.
The Bible warns of end time "lying signs and wonders"
The sheer numbers that are and will be deceived according to Bible prophecy are enormous to say the least.
Some other deceptions.
Perhaps the biggest most widespread and dangerous deception is that which is adhered to by most unsaved people, but is also very widely manifest in the church. Most unsaved people believe that if there is a God He would not send them to hell, because they are basically good. Many who are not truly born again of God, but do go to church, think the same thing. Well, going to church can't save you simply because it didn't die for you!
God saves no one , neither Jew nor gentile because they are good. He only saves those that gone through the cross.
Neutrality is a curse. The agnostic believes that the truth is unknowable, so they're neutral. Many others believe that absolutes are old fashioned. Isaiah 5:20 "Cursed are those who call evil good and good evil; who put light for darkness and darkness for light...woe to those who are wise in their own eye."
Many believe that truth is not important is relative and open to interpretation. This was the very first sin recorded in the garden of Eden. Satan said to Adam "Has God said you shall not eat of every tree" In other words...question God's authority...a very stupid thing to do!
The purpose of prophecy:
The purpose of prophecy is to give us eyes to see where we are, where not to go and where we should go. It is ultimately to glorify our risen Messiah. It is hated in many circles today, simply because it is in conflict with the ways and goals of the devil and his world. He always slams and brings confusion into whatever is against him.
The prophets of old were often despised by the people back then because they warned people that they were on the wrong track. These prophets of old were often loners, spending long periods of time in the deserts, seeking the face and wisdom of God. They were granted spectacular insight into Gods plans and purposes as they separated themselves from the masses. Today Bible prophecy is more important than ever. It a lot more important that hardly anyone can imagine! Ignore Bible prophecy at your own peril.
Masses will be saved:
One of the most interesting factors relating to the soon coming of our Messiah and the surrounding events is that untold masses will turn to the Lord. The Spirit of antichrist will intensify, but at the same time the Spirit of the Lord will be poured out causing many to get saved.
Joel 3:14 "Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision, for the Day of Lord is near."
What is most important these days is to question things. Not in a big deal way, but to look for the truth. Truth can stand scrutiny without any problem. The problem is that so many just accept and receive anything and everything blindly.
Truth stands victorious:
One of the churches mentioned in the seven letters of the Revelation is without a single word of condemnation levelled against it by our Lord. It is highly favoured and commended. It is told; "Because you have kept My Word to persevere, I will keep you from the hour of tribulation coming on the whole world to test it." The church of Philadelphia is a glorious church free from deception, powerful and victorious.
Truth always leads to correct living while error always leads to wrong choices and a life set on the wrong road.
Truth is the road and path to the presence of God while error eventually leads to hell.
James 3: 17 The wisdom that is from above is pure, peaceable, gentle, yielding, full of mercy and with good fruits.
Heaven or hell:
Old man before you died you had every opportunity to make Yeshua / Jesus the Lord of your life. Did you? You know all about it now, but from your eternal home. Where are you now old man? You're not in your grave, that's just the remains of your body! If only you could speak to the living, what would you say? I wonder if it would make any difference.
Young girl, you're alive now, you have your life before you. Are you going to waste it? Heaven or hell is before you and what you do now with the salvation offered by our Messiah of Glory will determine your eternal abode! Don't gamble with eternity!
In closing here is a woodcut impression by Gustave Dore of Lucifer overlooking the Garden of Eden. It is part of a series entitled "Paradise Lost" Yes, paradise was lost as a result of deception, but what is coming will be "Paradise regained and its coming soon!(Thanks to the Adelaide University Library)
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and grow in grace!
