Mid-East Prophecy Update – December 31st, 2017

Mid-East Prophecy Update – December 31st, 2017


for today’s prophecy update I want to talk about how 2017 was arguably one of
the most significant years in recent history certainly prophetically and I
think you would agree with me at the beginning of the year I made the
assertion that the Trump presidency would rev up I chose those words
deliberately the fulfillment of Bible prophecy the reason I chose the words
rev up is because of what Jesus said in Revelation chapter 20 he said behold I
come quickly and that’s an interesting word in the original language of the
Greek New Testament it’s the Greek word tachos where we get our English word for
tachometer it’s a measurement of revolutions per minute or rpms and what
Jesus was saying here in effect was behold
I come at a time when things are revving up things are speeding up as I look back
on this year what a year it’s been one of the things that is striking to me is
just how fast it went I know we say that every year but on God’s prophetic
calendar it just seems like this was a profound prophetic year and just how
swiftly everything happened so now well nigh a year later it does seem that this
is beginning to come to pass and I believe it has profound implications for
and in 2018 I spent some time this last week going over all that’s happened
in the last year and in the interest of time I’ve condensed it to what I see as
four of the most significant prophetic developments of the year and what’s
interesting about them is that they all interconnect or perhaps better said
intersect like puzzle pieces or oh thank you bless you going to have to do a pardon me I asked
the Lord on the way here I said Lord you know as long as I can still talk it’s
okay you know I don’t even need to stand I could sit on a stool but just so I can
just talk just keep my voice so anyway pardon me if you will imagine this
picture in your mind Bible prophecy is like a crossword puzzle everything
connects and intersects it’s like pieces to a puzzle that all
fit together perfectly as the picture comes together I want to begin with this
first one and it’s that of the unprecedented natural disasters that are
increasing in both frequency and intensity I realized that and this is
commonly what I’m asked about in the comments that are made but haven’t we
always had earthquakes and natural disasters absolutely we have but it’s
becoming irrefutable that today they are the likes of which we have never seen
before in human history the size and the scope of
them like birth pains continue to intensify and they’re more frequent it’s
almost like here comes this major storm and then oh my we don’t even catch our
breath and there’s another one oh and then there’s another one and then while
that’s happening this is happening over here on Tuesday CNBC pardon me I’m so
sorry I hope it’s trying to make it not a distraction CNBC published a report
titled 2017 a year of disaster let me just quote briefly from the report 2017
was a devastating year with natural disasters such as catastrophic floods
wildfires and earthquakes affecting millions across the globe Sigma recently
estimated that disasters this year caused an estimated 306 billion with a B
dollars in total economic losses and that’s not to even mention the loss of
life because of these storms even as we speak
flooding this fire in California the worst in history the worst in
recorded history taking place as we speak in Matthew’s Gospel the 24th
chapter the disciples asked Jesus what are going to be the signs of Your return
and of the end of the age and in verse 4 Jesus answers this way He says watch out
that no one deceives you for many will come in My name claiming I am the
Messiah and will deceive many you will hear of wars and
rumors of wars but see to it that you are not alarmed such things must happen
but the end is still to come nation will rise against nation and
Kingdom against Kingdom there will be famines and earthquakes in various
places and then He likens them in verse 8 to a woman in labor and He says all
these are the beginning of birth pains and what do we know to be true about
birth pains they come in greater frequency and in greater intensity and
certainly we’re witnessing this take place in this the last days this ties
into our second one as it relates to wars and rumors of wars specifically
concerning the geopolitical developments in Damascus Syria 2017 certainly brought
about a massive shift surrounding who’s in Syria and perhaps more importantly
why they’re in Syria if you were to ask me which bible prophecy I thought was on
the cusp of being fulfilled it would have to be the prophecy concerning
Damascus Syria in Isaiah 17 verse 1 let me just read it a prophesy against
Damascus see Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins
it’s believed that in a day there will come sudden destruction upon Damascus
that will be so destructive that the city of Damascus will no longer be
inhabitable this has never happened before is Damascus a heap of ruins today
yes it is but the worst is yet to come because something is going to happen
some believe a strike at the hands of Israel who already heretofore
has sent many missiles into specifically Damascus where it’s
believed Bashar al-Assad has weapons of mass destruction keyword hidden beneath
these hospitals and schools and so it makes it very difficult but all it takes
is one strike on one location in Damascus and that city is completely
destroyed never to be inhabited again and I would
suggest that everybody is now at the ready in Damascus in Syria exactly as we
were told they would be now someone might want to let the Russian President
Vladimir Putin know about this Isaiah prophecy because according to Al Arabiya
he told his Syrian counterpart Bashar al-Assad in a New Year’s greeting that
Russia will continue supporting Syria’s efforts to defend its sovereignty now
this again like a crossword puzzle connects and intersects with this third
development and it’s that of the prophetic alignment of Nations with
Russia and Iran at the helm and now Turkey and more recently even Sudan but
especially and perhaps more interestingly Saudi Arabia in November
of this year we witnessed what some have dubbed a tectonic shift with Putin’s
so-called victory summit in Russia this is where he met with both Iran and
Turkey and this was historic in the sense that it had
ever happened before and this alignment was and is very exciting for students
and teachers of Bible prophecy because it’s exactly what we were told would
happen in Ezekiel over 2500 years ago and of course I’m referring to Ezekiel
38 a prophecy that we’ve talked about often during the last year I won’t take
the time to read it but let me just give you the gist of it I am going to just move
forward with the presupposition that you know about this prophecy but it’s
basically an alliance of Russia Iran Turkey Sudan in that area a lot of the
-stans as they’re called Ethiopia these Islamic nations under the lead of Russia
and Iran will launch a nuclear attack against Israel and they’ll do so to take
a spoil in other words they want what Israel has what does Israel have oh
they have spoil or as one said just take the SP off and you have oil and they
have natural gas and they have technology and they have prosperity and
they have all of the above and that’s what they want and that’s what we’re
told they’re going to do in verse 13 well we also have a very fascinating detail in
this prophecy about Sheba and Dedan which is the modern day area we know
today as Saudi Arabia and here’s what’s interesting they’re not aligned with
Russia Iran Turkey et al they protest this allied attack and in their protest
with the merchants of Tarshish and all their young lions they question
in protest asking have you attacked because you want to take plunder have
you gathered your army to take booty or a spoil to carry away silver and gold to
take away livestock and goods to take great plunder is that why the
implication being is that Saudi Arabia is not only not aligned with Russia and
Iran but actually it would seem that they’re more on the side of Israel who
knew who knew on Monday the Jerusalem Post published an article that virtually
reads like Ezekiel 38 I mean you can’t make this stuff up the the article is
titled Israel’s future looks bright save for the rising Iranian threat let me
just share a little bit about what they had to say they talk about the movement
of Saudi Arabia under the young Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman toward Israel
and how it’s a major positive factor for Israel in facing Iran is that is it
just me or is that verse 13 of Ezekiel 38 they also talk about Israel’s bright
future economically and they quote statistics here’s one Israel’s GDP
capita has soared from three thousand dollars in 1948 to almost 39,000
dollars in 2017 here’s another Israel’s foreign exchange
reserves have soared from less than 1 billion
in 1960 two years before I was born to 100 billion let me just repeat that 1960
1 billion today 100 billion a hundred times more today here’s another one
Israel’s high tech industry is in the top five in the world and home to the
R&D work of over get this 300 foreign companies oh that’s why they’re
interested you know that Israel can make water drinking water out of air how’s
that one well you know that cell phone that’s in your pocket that I hope you
silenced or turned off you know the technology in that that cell phone in
our pockets you know where it came from came from Israel time does not permit me
to grocery list all of the things that comes out of Israel and this one of 300
companies foreign companies Mobileye was sold to Intel for 15 billion with a B
dollars Israel is very prosperous today very prosperous today they then go on to
talk about how Israel’s military is the most powerful in the Middle East and
truly it is and among the top ten in the world it’s reported to have nuclear
weapons ultra-modern missile defense systems and first-class
air planes and pilots and its intelligence forces are also among the
best in the world did you know that well here’s their conclusion overall then the
future seems bright save for the Iranian threat to someday use nuclear weapons
against a country that has only some twenty thousand square kilometers 58% of
which that’s over half is desert but then Israel has multiple strengths and
Iran has serious problems at home and increasingly abroad I don’t know if
you’ve heard what’s going on in Iran we’re four days into this this is really
interesting I had to take a second look at this this morning it was on Fox News
it’s kind of interesting the commentary this is very different than
the protests in 2009 these Iranians and by the way let me preface this by
letting you know I hope you know this that the Iranians are coming to a saving
knowledge of Jesus Christ by the multitudes did you know that by the
multitudes in the Middle East Muslims are coming to Christ by the
multitudes and I praise God for that well these Iranians are actually in
their protests calling for the removal of the Islamic regime of the Ayatollah
they didn’t ask for that in 2009 well now wait a minute my Bible says that Iran is going to with
Russia and these other nations attack Israel so it doesn’t make sense to me
that they will succeed in toppling this Islamic regime
but now think about that is it possible now that the regime realizes the clock
is ticking when there’s a revolution they’re actually calling for the son of
the Shah get this I mean prior to 1979 and the overthrow of the Shah
Iran was Israel’s friend can you even wrap your mind around that I was 16
years old in 1979 I graduated high school barely not proud of that but in
1980 and I remember it even at a young age but Israelis would actually go to
Iran to vacation on Thursday nights we’re in the book of Esther it is very very
interesting one of the one of my I know I say this about every book but it’s one
of my favorite books in all of the Bible and it’s so fascinating how God in His
sovereignty orchestrated the circumstances using Esther and Mordecai
to deliver His people the Jewish people from the hands of an antichrist type
named Haman and by the way the typology in the book is just off the charts and
this is in the Persian Empire the Persian Empire and here we are today
fast-forward and by the way it wasn’t until the last century that they changed
the name from Persia to Iran and then in 1979 it became the Islamic Republic of
Iran and now the protestors four days in without any real signs of it dissipating
are calling for the toppling of this Islamic regime that could be a game
changer it certainly bears watching in the days
ahead I believe it has profound prophetic implications but it’s really
interesting because the protesters are protesting chiefly because of the
economy in Iran and Ynet News reported that they are urging their
government to of all things let go of Palestine
it seems that Iranians are protesting Iran’s costly involvement in regional
conflicts and providing financial aid to Assad in Syria Hezbollah Hamas and the
Houthi rebels while at home the country suffers
pardon me from an economic crisis well again this intersects with our fourth
and final one which is the intoxicating obsession with dividing Jerusalem under
the banner of a two-state solution with Jews and so-called Palestinians living
side by side in peace and security this of course is First Thessalonians 5:3
Paul writing says for a while they are saying peace and security and here’s
those two words that I believe we’re going to be hearing a lot of in the year
to come sudden destruction while they are saying peace and security sudden
destruction comes upon them and here’s that analogy again as labor pains upon a
pregnant woman and they shall not escape the implication being they are not we we
are not they I know that’s deeply profound we will escape we will escape
in the Great Escape the Blessed hope the only hope and
that’s when that trumpet sounds and the dead in Christ rise first and we who are
alive and remain will be caught up that’s how we escape we are
the we they are the they they will not escape when the sudden destruction comes
down I truly believe and becoming
increasingly convinced that when sudden destruction comes down we go up we go up
to which I say bring it bring it okay to me one of the most significant if not
the most significant prophetic developments in 2017 was the recent
declaration by President Trump that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of
Israel and that the United States is going to move its embassy from Tel Aviv
to Jerusalem I have to say and you’ll forgive the abrupt close here but to me
this one development this declaration I believe has set in motion the beginning
to come to pass of Bible prophecy and it’s again the likes of which I don’t
think we’ve ever seen before now we are already hearing the rumblings if I can
say it that way the threats that are coming as a result
and this came right at the end of 2017 so I want to close with a question with
that in mind the question on this the eve of our countdown to 2018 as we say
goodbye to a very interesting year in 2017 so here’s the question if so much
has happened so fast in 2017 wouldn’t it stand a reason that
more will happen in 2018 and not only more
will happen but wouldn’t it also stand to reason that it will also happen
faster in 2018 you know once the birth pains start they
don’t stop you’re never going to have the doctor come
into that room and say you know what I promised my staff a lunch today so can
you just hold off and then we’ll what no I cannot once they start they don’t stop
not only do they not stop they continue to increase in frequency and intensity
and such is the case I believe with all that is happening let me if you don’t
mind take it one step further and ask this question wouldn’t it also stand a
reason that is Christian’s we would do well to get serious and be ready stop
playing around stop playing church wouldn’t it stand to reason that it’s
now time for us to look up and lift up our heads knowing that our Redemption
draws nigh you know what John said about this he said that those who have this
hope of His soon return purify themselves you know what that means they
get their affairs in order it’s like if you go into the doctor’s office and the
doctor says I’ve got some bad news it’s terminal you don’t have much time
you need to get your affairs in order that’s what we’re talking about here we
need to get our affairs in order one last question and it’s for those who
have never called upon the name of the Lord to be saved
here’s the question in a word why are you kidding me with everything that is
happening in the world today I’m not trying to be clever or cute or coy or anything
I’m just genuinely why would you put it off the most important decision you’ll
ever make in your life for eternal life if you’ll just give me two more minutes
I want to share with you the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ by way of
the ABCs of salvation the A is for admit that you’re a sinner and acknowledge
your need for a Savior Romans 3:10 says there is no one righteous not even one
Romans 3:23 says all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God we were
all born sinners which is why we must be born again
spiritually to see the kingdom of heaven Romans 6:23 says for the wages of sin is
death it’s the death penalty but and this is the good news the gift of God
and pardon me is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord
the B is for believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is Lord this is Romans 10:9
and 10 it says if you believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the
dead you will be saved and then the C lastly is for call pardon me upon the
name of the Lord this is Romans 10:9 and 10 which also says if you confess with
your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the
dead you will be saved for it is with your heart that you believe and are
justified and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved and then
lastly this is what seals the deal if you will it says all who call upon the
name of the Lord will be saved I can’t think of a better day and a better way
than today on this last day of 2017 to get right with God why don’t you all stand
and we’ll pray Father in heaven I thank You so much
Lord I thank You as You said as John records that you’re going to tell us what’s
going to happen before it happens so when it happens we’ll believe well Lord we
believe and when believers who believe begin to see these things come to pass
then Lord it’s time to look up and lift up our heads knowing our Redemption
draws nigh could 2018 be the year that you return Lord certainly could and so
Lord we would just simply pray Maranatha Lord come quickly in Jesus’ name Amen

  1. God bless Pastor JD Farag. Ive been tyning in for a year now and i appreciate your insight. Its helped me very much thank you. Recently ive been dealing with a subject that may be to long to explain by typing. Is there any way i can communicate a question to you and here your thoughts on this teaching. I hope its not an onconvenience. Whenever you have a chance i can drop you my phone number or however you choose. Thx again my brother im reaching out because its important to me and i believe God has vested his spirit in you and you could answet an unbiased answer

  2. Praise Jesus that the Iranians are coming to Christ, what amazing news! Let us all pray for the Iranian woman who took off her head dress as they say she may have gotten arrested. Happy new year everyone, I'm in 2018 here already! God bless you all and Maranatha, Come quickly Lord Jesus!

  3. Another great prophecy update as always Pastor JD! I was just now thinking that another possibility regarding Russia coming to take spoil in Israel during the Gog/Magog invasion could be that when Russia and the U.S./NATO get into any kind of a forthcoming war, then perhaps most of Russia's own natural gas/oil fields will have been 'obliterated.' I see this scenario as a possibility also. God bless and Maranatha!

  4. Bless you and your message. Your word has reached me in CT. I’m a Christian that feels your outreach to all of God’s sheep. I also lost a child, a. Son who was 17. Yes God has led me through the valley of death but he’s never abandoned me. My strength is from the lord. Thank you for preaching from your heart.

  5. Pre-trib or what-not. For my part I guess it doesnt matter. Im a believer, but not born again, and a continous sinner (im sorry Jesus). I think my escape from the second death will be through suffering and pain. I pray im strong enough when my time come.

  6. Thank you J.D Farag for an excellent Prophecy Update. I hope you feel better. I do believe that in 2018 the birth pains will become more frequent and with much greater intensity!

  7. God bless and keep you our dear brother JD. The Lord is so amazing and gracious to us and never leaves us without encouragement. Msranatha, we are looking up for our Bridegroom. A blessed and phenomenal 2018. Your brother in Jesus… Walter

  8. Thank you so very much, your ministry has been a wonderful blessing! Prayers for you, your family, your church and my brothers and sisters in Christ! May Gods will grow in 2018!

  9. I have always believed a generation was as Psalm 90:10 says The days of our lives are seventy years; And if by reason of strength they are eighty years. Today I was to an end times video and it said Genesis 6:3 And the Lord said, My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years (120). So add 70 to 1948, 80 to 1948 or 120 to 1948? I hope we are out of here during my time, for I can't imagine this continuing until 2068!

  10. Let's all remember on God's calendar 2017 ends March 18th , so the Rapture can totally still be in 2017 , the jubilee year ! Amen ! Let's all stay strong and occupy till our Lord's coming !!!

  11. Coat mouth and throat lightly.  Swallow. Repeat as needed-not often. JD, you will see how changing the PH balance in your throat [nostrils if sinus-not pleasant but-works] does NOT allow the bacteria and/or virus to succeed.  MUST begin at aura's start.  If you wait-will be too late. [Metal Mug-hot herbal tea at podium-w/malt straw for aim! :)]

  12. Am a retired nurse.  Singer and Speaker.  Health weakness WAS my voice.  Found a great solution that works!  Carry very tiny spray bottle – filled with mouthwash.  At the disconcerting moment the 'aura' of a cold, flu, chest cold or sinus bacteria or virus attack begins – begin to spray the mouthwash.  Improvement is immediate!

  13. Happy New Year JD!
    love your studies…I hope you feel better soon!
    your neighbors in Vancouver BC Canada 😊
    Shalom😙😘😚

  14. Praise God our Father in Heaven I can remember in my younger days of being taught in church that there was going to become a great awakening on people from all over the world the Holy Spirit would go through the nations to call on the ones who believe upon our Saviour Jesus Christ the great I Am the way the truth and Life. Happy New years brother and sisters.

  15. It has also been reported that the US and Israel have agreed on a pact to work together to remove the Iranian threat.
    Could it be that certain CIA and Mossad people are stirring the good people of Iran to protest? In a last ditch effort to over throw the regime? If successful that would certainly put a flaw into everyone's EZ 38-39 prediction now wouldnt it.
    I also think Saudi Arabia , the US, and Israel will stand against the PA and Turkey, Jordan and others, so that the new Temple can be built on the Temple Mount next to the mosque. That could begin latter this new year or the year after. Esp. if Iran is not around to cause trouble. This could mean the hook in Russia might cause THEM to blow up Damascus as a false flag blaming Israel, to jump start everything, so that the rest of Isa17 comes into play, the destruction of Northern half of Israel. DONT just read Isa 17:1 read the rest of the story as well! That would certainly put an end to Israel's "peace and security".

  16. My baby daughter passed away July 31st, so along with everything else going on it is a year I will never forget. It should have been me, she was only 38 and her baby turned 8 in August. My heart still hurts for her hugs. I feel so lost without her. I have her two babies now, I think without them I don’t know how I would make it. Pray for me and my grandchildren, please.

  17. the Iranian people want to break the chains of Islam and American liberals want to bring Islam to America.

  18. We were watching you and saw you were coughing and asked people to pray for you . My husband prayed for you to be touched by God, and he said to let you know he felt God did touch you as you did not cough again until the very last …… so you could complete your prophecy update to encourage the body of Christ tonight !

  19. Happy New year pastor!!!! Praying for you and your family. Please pray for mine i need it so bad. I sure hope Jesus comes soon!!!

  20. I'm not going back to sleep anytime soon. 4 blood moons 2014-2015 then total solar eclipse Aug 2017. Then revelation 12 celestial sign in Sept. God is shouting that the trumpet is about to sound. Michael is about to stand up and cast satan and his buddies to the earth, we go up at that moment and all Hell breaks loose on this planet.
    34And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. 35For as a SNARE shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the WHOLE EARTH. WATCH ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to ESCAPE all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
    I emphasize the "whole world", that's alot of real estate man😨

  21. God bless you brother JD! You have been a tremendous encouragement in 2017. I'm praying for continued strength and God's direction to be so bright in your life for 2018!

  22. I’ve studied this prophecy for years and I’ve come to the conclusion that it has to be something new every time I hear it I think about Kim clement having a vision of a new energy that will come soon to Gods people

  23. Looking forward to spending Gods New Year in Heaven. Nissan is his New Year so we are in 2017 on Gods calendar. 2017 is the year of the rapture . Praise his holy name.

  24. Thank you for your commitment to building up God's people: even those of us many miles away in South Africa. God bless you and keep you

  25. Prayers and Blessings to all of Christ's people. Thank you for your ministry. Looking forward to this online Church especially study of each book of the Bible. AMEN.

  26. Hi there pastor JD from Hawaii God bless you and your family and your ministry and thank you for keeping us updated and informed because you are absolutely right about everything and you are a blessed the best pastor I know because you have been preaching the truth without sugar coating your sermons you tell it like it is

  27. Just want to thank you for your great work in the old year! May you and your family and ministry be blessed until we meet in the clouds! Greetings from Germany!

  28. Thank you. I just heard that plains were leaving Iran with destiny unknown. In other words no “ log in” as to where they were going was made.

  29. Pastor JD, I hope that you feel better soon!  Charlie Garrett is sick, too!  I told Charlie that I'm just too mean to get sick.  You are just too nice, Brother!  Thanks for the great update. See you soon…  "Here, There or In the Air!"

  30. It’s interesting you use the term”tectonic shift” at 10:33. The title of Benjamin Faircloth’s sermon on December 10 was the same “tectonic shift”. Featuring Jeremiah 19.

  31. May blessings and happiness, bounty and glory envelope all those like you brothers and sisters who follow our beloved Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ

  32. God wasn't kidding when He said Israel would be a BLESSING to this world! R&D is a world wide blessing, especially in medicine and resources like water development, etc. we are blessed to know the God of Blessing, the Lord God of Israel ( and all who are grafted into His tree of life).
    Iran is being given a wake up call, and its people are waking up!! Adonai is the only God of life!
    Thank you bro JD, from here in NZ!!

  33. Happy New Year JD! Awaiting His return with great Joy. My neighbor tried to stone me to death yesterday, LOL. We are the aroma of death to the perishing. Keep looking up!

  34. The City of Damascus, already a ruinous heap, could no longer be inhabitable (8:19) simply due to lack of water resources or the expense to bring in or treat sufficient water stocks is just too high. That is, the long-term trends and projections indicate the business case to rebuild isn't worth it.

  35. Love you Pastor JD ! No matter how bumpy this ride gets (and it can be very bumpy) I can exhale and have His Peace because I know our Deliverer is coming. 💙 BUT GOD !!!! Happy New Year to you pastor JD and all you saints out there. Lin Torrance California 🎆 I'm looking up 🙌

  36. We were so blessed today hearing both you and Amir. I so thank God that you are two Godly men of our time, in this crazy world! You have no idea what that means to God's people. Especially me.
    I woke up thinking on Dec.31, "2018 year of our King" Hopefully it is so and we are with you,
    MARANATHA! P.S. I love when you go off track in your sermons, I feel it is all God inspired.

  37. Yes, Maranatha! I don't think pre or post trib. I think "while." In other words, I expect the rapture to happen as missiles are on their way between Russia and the U.S.A. Both will be destroyed. This of course leaves no friend to Israel, setting the stage for the anti-christ.

  38. Glory to God! Rejoice saints!!! Hallelujah!!! We're STILL in the Jubilee and our bodies WILL be redeemed this Year 2018!!! The Trumpet for the 120th Jubilee Year sounded on the 12th of October 2016, on the Day of Atonement. The Jubilee Year started six months later on the 28th of March, 2017, and will end on the 16th of March 2018. Hence we read "…you shall consecrate [that is, set apart] the fiftieth year [Spring 2017 – Spring 2018], and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you…" The Jubilee year we're now in is the time-frame within which the Lord Jesus Christ is going to bring about the redemption of our bodies and return us to our glorious homes in heaven! "Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality." [1 Cor.15:51-53]

    "…each of you shall return to his possession…" [Lev.25:10] For each of us to return to our possession means to have all our good deeds returned to us in heaven. Because we have eternal life, nothing we do by the Spirit of God is destroyed. Our good deeds, that is, the righteousness we practice here on earth, are gifts we continuously receive from the Lord through His Holy Spirit. These are all being transformed into possessions like garments, jewelry, furniture, mansions, etc, and we'll be returning to them in heaven after the Rapture. "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." [Matt.6:19-21]

    We don't do things for the Lord because we want Him to reward us. We do things for Him because He first loved us and we earnestly want to love Him back. Every righteous act causes the Lord to bless us more and more. "…the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.” And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints." [Rev.19:7,8] How many of us can remember every single thing we did for the Lord 5, 10 or 20 Years ago? We've forgotten most of them. The good news is that the Lord hasn't forgotten any of them, for He's storing them up for us and is using them to prepare a place for us in His heavenly Kingdom. The Lord is going to return each of us to our deeds [that is, to our possessions] in this Jubilee Year, [2017-2018]. "…I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also." [John 14:2,3]

    "…each of you shall return to his family." [Lev.25:10] The Lord is a perfect record keeper, and He can trace our fathers family line all the way back to Adam through Noah! Some of our ancestral fathers would have made it into heaven and others would have not. Of those who made it into heaven we are their promised descendants. Sometimes Christians make the mistake of thinking that because their parents and grandparents are not Christians they came to Christ out of the blue. This is not the case at all. They don't realize that they came to Christ because their great great great grandfathers loved the Lord and are in heaven interceding for them. This is because the Lord promised to give them descendants that will stand before Him in these Last Days. In many cases our ancestors had to wait for many generations before finally receiving descendants in their family line that will stand before the Lord in righteousness. We are the answer to their prayers! "Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.” [Luke 21:36]

    "…Jeremiah said to the house of the Rechabites, “Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: ‘Because you have obeyed the commandment of Jonadab your father, and kept all his precepts and done according to all that he commanded you, therefore thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: “Jonadab the son of Rechab shall not lack a man to stand before Me forever.”’” [Jer.35:18,19] Think about it. Jonadab from the house of the Rechabites, loved the Lord and taught his children to love Him too. Because of this the Lord blessed him with descendants who are standing before Him to this very day. We're in the final Jubilee of this Age and the Lord is getting ready to reunite us with our ancestral fathers that link us all the way up to Adam through Noah. These are the families we all descended from over the last 6,000 Years! 2017/2018 is the 120th Jubilee since the beginning of time, and the 40th Jubilee since the death and resurrection of Christ in 17/18 AD, which was also a Jubilee Year.

    According to the Scriptures the Rapture will ONLY occur this Jubilee year, AFTER a Total Solar Eclipse and a Total Lunar Eclipse. A Total Solar Eclipse already occurred on the 21st of August 2017. And a Total Lunar Eclipse will occur on the 31st of January 2018!!! "The sun shall be turned into darkness [21st August 2017], and the moon into blood [31st January 2018], BEFORE the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord. And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved." [Acts 2:20,21] My dear brothers and sisters get ready to be part of the greatest family reunion of all time!

  47. The Persian populace, aka, Iranian people are at it again. But this time, in the USA, we have a real President in power with Cojones that will help the Iranian Citizens carry on their complaints about the Iranian Leaders not helping the Citizens in whole!
    When Spineless Obama was in the White House, and the Iranian People complaint, Obama did nothing to help them! On the contrary, Obama sent the Iranian Government 150 Billion Dollars!

  50. Hello JD. Good update on 12-31. Thank you for your ministry. I was touched by the Spirit on your comment encouraging us to purify ourselves according to 1Jn 3:3. I and many I know have had life issues over the past few years with seemingly increasing frequency and severity. It is common for us (me especially) being "fix it' or "understand it" people to want an answer. Maybe, God is just helping us get purified (ie I "told you" about purifying yourself, NOW, with the end approaching, I will SHOW you about purification…). Finding many reasons to be grateful…

  51. Hello, Pastor JD. Thank you so much, again, for these prophecy updates. I was wondering whether you have an opinion on Babylon in Iraq, becoming an international trade hub. Perhaps you could do a prophecy update on this?
    I include links below, that contains information about UNESCO adding the Ahwar to its world heritage list; tours are going to Babylon and there seem to be a tourist resort now, in Babylon! (although, you probably already know about this….)
