The Opened "Little Scroll" is in fulfilment of the scripture: "Then they said to me, 'Once again you must utter prophecies over peoples and nations and languages and many kings.'"  For this is "the Spirit of [The Christ's] mouth".  (Rev 10:11 NEB.  2 Thess 2:8).

In 1976, while in a "sackcloth" condition, I began writing the "Little Scroll" in fulfilment of the Revelation to the apostle John. (Rev 11:3. 10:8-10). In January 1979 I fled into the "wilderness" condition of Revelation 12:14 to be spiritually "fed" and to continue writing. The work began with Page 777 and continued through to Page 887. While in the "wilderness" pages 666A to 666X were written. Further Divine discernments have continued since then and are recorded in the "Little Scroll".

The Supreme Spirit Almighty God did say to His Spirit Son: "Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness". (Gen 1:26). Their "image" and "likeness" is a Spirit image and likeness, and is not the image or likeness of flesh. A man begins to be Spirit created in their likeness only when he is willing to be subjected to God through His Son The Christ. (1 Cor 15:22-28). Adam, like many of his descendants today, was not willing to become a subjected spirit being. But Abel and many others of the "seed" were subjected by Holy Spirit while they lived on earth in the flesh. Besides these, through the "new covenant" by The Christ a further 144,000 anointed sons of God have been gathered. (Rev 7:4).  And there are "other sheep, which are not of this fold" that are similarly being gathered into the Spirit likeness of God and His Son.  (John 10:16).

Today there has proven to be two kinds of worshippers of God: Those who worship Him through true active faith, and more recently, those who experience or witness the power of the anger of God and who give glory to Him out of fear of physical calamity (as in the case of the survivors of the Mexico City earthquake in 1985). (Rev 11:13). Certain events have served as indicators in fulfilment of particular prophecies of God, leading up to the commencement of His Kingdom Rule.  (Rev 11:15).

Prophecies of God fulfilled by such events just before and including the Mexico City earthquake indicated that the opportunity to acquire faith through the "good news" of The Christ had ceased. (Rev 10:7). The purpose of the "good news" by The Christ was for people to be spiritually subjected to God through accurate knowledge and the exercise of faith in Him before His Christ's Second Coming. After the period and related events of the "appointed times" of the nations were fulfilled, this opportunity ceased. (Eph 1:10). Thereafter, salvation could only be achieved by the giving of glory to God out of fear     that is to say, through witnessing and believing that the fear-inspiring calamities taking place on earth are the work of God. (Rev 11:13). The spirit subjection of such ones will be the future work of the 144,000 anointed heavenly temple slaves of God.  (Rev 5:9,10.  20:6).

The creation of one's spirit will ultimately lead to immortal spirit life for all subjected worshippers of God. It is achieved by the exercise of faith according to the written Word of God made known through His apostles, prophets and anointed ones, by holy fear of God, and an earnest desire to serve His Will rather than one's own will. By His removal of the "veil" of ignorance that once shrouded the hearts and minds of all His potential servants, we are able to clearly see the extent of His mercy to us and the wonders of the Divine Will expressed in His written Word the Holy Bible.  (2 Cor 3:16-18).

The revelations of The Opened "Little Scroll" revealed during the "time of the end" of the present system of things were only briefly described to the Apostle John. (Rev Ch.10). This Scroll reveals the last bitter denunciations of God against instituted error within all nations and The Christ's exposure of them through many warnings sent before the impending anger of God upon all spirit rebellion. It has been particularly directed against the "final rebellion" in Christ's congregations, manifest as the composite "man of lawlessness" and described as the "disgusting thing... standing in a holy place". (Matt 24:15.  2 Thess 2:3-12 NWT & NEB). These are men who apostatized and "trampled" on those whom God inhabits by Holy Spirit.  (Rev 11:2)  (1 Cor 3:16,17.  Dan 8:13,14).

The "Little Scroll" are heavenly Spirit communications channeled through one of His anointed "two witnesses" that are faithful members residing on earth of the "body" of Christ. (Rev 11:3). It is a contribution both in word and deed toward the legal case that has been conducted to vindicate the Holy Name of God, both in heaven and on earth. Thereafter, the Heavenly Court will sit in Judgement in connection with this legal case concerning the rulership of all kingdoms on earth. (Dan 7:25-27).  This Court will administer punishment to all those who harassed and "trampled" on holy sons of God. The methods and means will then be revealed by which beloved people of God were harassed during the "appointed times" by the composite "man of lawlessness" who tried to mislead chosen ones of God  ("if such a thing were possible").  (Matt 24:24 NEB.  2 Thess 2:3).

This composite "man of lawlessness" (made up of many) was invested with satanic authority and was promoted by  those receptive to this particular kind of satanic activity; changing the "times and Law" of God to "try  making  a  vision come true"      their own. (Dan 11:14.  7:25). They were active just before, and during, the "appointed times" and related events of that period. (Dan 8:13,14. 12:11). They fabricated fulfilments of prophecies to fulfil their own vision of self-appointed 'times' during the years preceding and leading up to the reality of the "appointed times" of God, and thus in every aspect fulfilled the prophecy that describes the activities of the "man of lawlessness". They got to "believing the lie"     their own! The "Little Scroll" provides more than ample evidence to expose their "Lie".  (2 Thess 2:11).

The "Little Scroll" helps to spiritually refine servants of God, but to others who have sworn falsely in His Name it is a curse. (Zech 5:1-4. Ezek 3:1-21). The power that inspired the "Little Scroll" was an anointing by Holy Spirit from Almighty God through His Christ the Firstborn Son of God; and included many communications in visions of the night.*  (1 John 2:20,27.  2 Cor 4:6.  *Job 33:15,16).

The spiritual knowledge contained in the "Little Scroll" is to refine the spirits of people of all nations by its application in their lives for spirit readjustment. This knowledge will be administered at the incoming celebrations of the festivals of booths, the pilgrim-feast of Tabernacles. These gatherings will be for the survivors of each nation     particularly for those who have warred against heavenly "Jerusalem".  (Zech 14:16  21). Nations that refuse to obey this arrangement from God will receive no "pouring rain" upon them, and persistent refusal will lead to those individuals being accursed by God. (Isaiah 65:20 NEB). African nations experiencing the "four families" of destruction sent by God is a case in point.  (Jer 15:2,3).  For so will the aspect of each nation be judged.

Concerning those parts of the "Little Scroll" that are often repeated, this is done for emphasis: "For by those stammering with their lips and by a different tongue He will speak to this people". (Isaiah 28:11). "These things we also speak, not with words taught by human wisdom, but with those taught by the Spirit, as we combine spiritual matters with spiritual words." #

# Or: "as we match spiritual matters to spiritual men."  (1 Cor 2:13 Large Print NWT).

The "Little Scroll" was not written merely for academic study. This work is aimed at one's heart, and is bitter only to heartless ones. (1 Cor 13:1-3). Only by obedience to each of the scriptural teachings of the Word of God    which are in agreement    are they distilled into one's spirit, enabling one to acquire righteousness now, and life everlasting thereafter.

To understand the symbolic language of God through His prophets addressed to people of this generation, it is necessary to view certain scriptural passages as "shadows" describing future realities in the "time of the end" of this  "Esau" age before the imminent spirit age of "Jacob" begins. (Heb 10:1.  2 Esdras 6:7-10 NEB). Therefore The Opened "Little Scroll" comprises a large number of transformations of literal scriptural events of the past into their intended spiritual reality taking place between the spirit heavens and mankind. The spiritual work and authority to "prophesy again" the "Little Scroll" concerning the nations has been given to the Heavenly Assembly of God.  (Rev 10:11).

It is of the utmost importance that as individuals and as a people we live according to the Way that pleases our Heavenly Creator, that He may bless us with all goodness. (Isaiah 35:8-10). The alternative would be to displease Him and to suffer under His constant discipline. Or worse, to ignore His advanced warnings and suffer the "plagues" of adverse Judgement upon self destructive spirit activities that damage one's wellbeing and happiness. (Rev 18:4,5). An angel of God told Ezra that those contemptuous of the Word of God will have to "learn the truth through torments after death." (2 Esdras 9:9-12 NEB). Surely it is wiser to learn the truth of the Will of God for us now, in this life, and live according to it, than to learn the truth through torments after one's death.

For one to gain a thorough understanding of a particular subject in this Scroll, readers are advised to view all the pages on that subject under the relevant heading in the Subject Index. While progressively reading from the first page has its merits, to gain a thorough understanding of a particular subject it is advised that all pages listed under the relevant subject heading are studied. Some teachings are repeated, but with additional new information. As it is written: "For  by  those stammering with their lips and by a different tongue He will speak to this  people".  (Isaiah 28:11). "Stammering" means repetition, and a "different tongue" means a different way of teaching.

For one's spiritual enlightenment, scriptural prophecies describing past events should now be considered as to their spiritual reality today (spiritual fulfilment). Indeed, in many cases such prophecies should be understood as having both a literal and a spiritual fulfilment. Please note: Unless otherwise stated, scriptures quoted in this Scroll are from The New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures (NWT). In order of frequency, the Bible translations used in this Scroll are as follows:

  The New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures  (NWT).
  The New English Bible (with the Apocrypha)  (NEB).
  The Moffatt Translation of the Bible.  (Moffatt).
  The Revised Standard Version.  (RSV).

This translation has been used in for two very important reasons: That although this particular translation is the one used by the apostate sect falsely calling themselves Jehovah's Witnesses    whose wickedness the Lord is now revealing    the translators of it were not of their sect. It was compiled by Westcott and Hort, and is for the most part an accurate rendering. However, within the pages of the many books compiled and printed by the sect of JWs there are many "lying signs and portents", in fulfilment of the prophecy of 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12. And while this sect has misused this translation in their books to change the "times and Law" of God, I have used this same translation to overturn their false reasonings     "every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God".  (2 Cor 10:4,5.  Dan 7:25).

In every detail the sect falsely calling themselves Jehovah's Witnesses have fulfilled the evil work of the composite "man of lawlessness" described in 2 Thessalonians chapter 2. Their usurpation and removal of anointed members of Christ's congregation and the 'shifting' of their responsibilities to unsealed men is no longer a mystery. For by the "Spirit  of his mouth" uttered through his anointed servants on earth our Lord Jesus has revealed them. From  14th  December 1976 they have been publicly exposed in print.  Members of this "man of lawlessness" the Lord Jesus will destroy by the "Spirit of his mouth" and "annihilate by the radiance of his coming."  (2 Thess 2:8 NWT & NEB).  The Opened "Little Scroll" is also the legal case of our Lord against all other sectarian religions described as the "harlots" of spiritistic "Babylon".  (Rev 17:5).

The spiritual work that The Christ Michael our Lord has ordered his anointed brothers to carry out is to prophesy The Opened "Little Scroll". (Rev 10:8-11). The spiritual knowledge of this Scroll has been made known to Spirit anointed brothers of The Christ during the "time of the end" of the present systems of this spiritual "darkness".  (Eph 6:12). It has been revealed to us over the past three decades, before the recent and continuing destruction of Babylon/Iraq. We now await the glorious Rule of God. (Rev 19:6). It has been sweet to receive the "Little Scroll", but  the public response to its proclamation has been bitter. The reason for this, during these "last days", is as prophesied through the apostle Paul:

"You must face the fact: the final age of this world is to be a time of troubles. Men will love nothing but money and self; they will be arrogant, boastful, and abusive; with no respect for parents, no gratitude, no piety, no natural affection; they will be implacable in their hatreds, scandal-mongers, intemperate and fierce, strangers to all goodness, traitors, adventurers, swollen with self-importance. They will be men who put pleasure in the place of God, men who preserve the outward form of religion, but are a standing denial of its reality. Keep clear of men like these. They are the sort that insinuate themselves into private houses and there get miserable women into their clutches, women burdened with a sinful past, and led on by all kinds of desires, who are always wanting to be taught, but are incapable of reaching a knowledge of the truth. As Jannes and Jambres defied Moses, so these men defy the truth; they have lost the power to reason, and they cannot pass the tests of faith. But their successes will be short-lived, for, like those opponents of Moses, they will come to be recognized by everyone for the fools they are."  (2 Tim 3:1-9 NEB).
