Mid-East Prophecy Update – February 28th, 2016

Mid-East Prophecy Update – February 28th, 2016


Alright, I want to get right to our prophecy
update today. There’s actually added a lot of stuff this morning when I got up. I want to talk about what I see as three key indicators which I would argue prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Bible prophecy is being fulfilled. The first indicator has to do with where the
world is headed economically. The second indicator has to do with where the world is headed religiously.
And the third is where the world is headed governmentally. Now it’s important to understand that all three, which we’ll look at, are going in the same direction. Just as we’re told in
the Bible that they would; but they do so with the backdrop of what’s happening in the Middle East. You’ll forgive me for sounding a little sensational when I say this, I hope it doesn’t come off like that, but what’s happening in the Middle East today is the likes of which
we’ve never seen before in human history. Now please know that whenever I, and I usually write it out so that I say it right, I think it through and I pray it through to make sure: is what I’m saying right? That’s a good thing right? To make sure that what you’re saying
is true and right. t’s not just some, you know sensational, you know statement. It’s not rhetorical certainly, but think about what I just said and I’m going to say it again. What we see happening today in the Middle East is the likes of which we have never seen before in human history. Think about that. As I was pondering all that’s happening just within the last two weeks, what struck
me was that US politics have all but drowned out any news coverage concerning the Middle East. It almost seems, and I don’t want this to sound like conspiracy, but it almost seems that the powers to be, as it were, are timing everything knowing that it will be under the radar for
such a time as this. I mean it is unprecedented. In fact I actually had to sort of condense
everything that I added this morning just in the interest of time. But if you really
dig, and if you get past all of the political coverage for this year’s election; again not to in any way suggests that this year’s election is unimportant; it certainly is and arguably the most important of our lifetime; but when it blankets and covers wall-to-wall everything at the expense of
what I believe are more important news stories taking place in the Middle East, that is
concerning; that’s concerning; that’s disturbing; that’s disturbing to me. And I know we’ve talked about this before, but I think about this, how do we even know we’re going to have an election this year. I know that stirs up all kinds of
conspiracy thoughts and theories too; but I say that more from the perspective of
tomorrow’s not guaranteed; tomorrow’s not guaranteed. James says, you know, be careful you who say we’re going to go to such and such a city and do business that will make a profit there; you should say Lord willing. And man’s life is but a vapor; here today, gone tomorrow. You cannot put stock guaranteeing that tomorrow is yours. You don’t know that. You know how much can happen between now and November. We look at how much
is happened just since the beginning of the year since January 1. It’s only what, tomorrow’s last day of February, right? Because it’s a leap year. Why are you looking at me like that. Tomorrow’s the 29th, right? Tuesday is March 1. Okay, Amen. Can I get a witness on that. Alright, at least I’ve got that. Well we’re two months into the year and look at what’s happened already, just in the first two months of the
year. It seems that with every passing day the prophecy of Isaiah 17 about Syria, specifically Damascus becoming a ruinous heap inches closer to fulfillment. I mean I’m not being, you know, what’s the word I’m looking for, when I say with each, I’m talking literally with each passing day, not
figuratively with each passing day; literally with each passing day it seems that this prophecy is inching closer to fulfillment. Consider this Jewish press article on Wednesday in
which they reported that the US Secretary of State John Kerry had warned the world community that may not be able to save Syria, what was once Syria anyway, if the current fighting continues much longer; and that it may get much uglier. Let me just quote from the report ,“Kerry had a grim outlook for the future of Syria. …Even if the regime’s Russian-backed forces re-take the northern city of Aleppo – the largest commercial hub in the country – Kerry said it is hard to hold territory in Syria at this point. For starters, the Secretary told the committee that he cannot guarantee that Russia will stick to the newcease-fire signed this week between the regime of President Bashar al-Assad and moderate opposition forces. Moscow and Washington also signed on to that truce, which excluded the Islamic State, Al Qaeda and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist groups.” Of course. The article
goes on to say, “Gulf nation governments and that of (listen) Saudi Arabia have already
warned their citizens to leave Lebanon if they haven’t already. As early as last week
rumors (interesting word) were flying that Turkey and Saudi Arabia were preparing their troops fora ground invasion of Syria to deal with the Islamic state terrorist threat on their own.”
Interesting, Saudi Arabia and with them Turkey. I would suggest that not only does it appear Isaiah 17 is on the cusp a fulfillment, but so too is Ezekiel 38, which is why we talk
about these prophecies now on a weekly basis. I believe they are in play, in real time. I
see Russia and Iran’s involvement, in concert with now Saudi Arabia’s threat of war, reminds me of what Jesus said: there will be rumors of wars, wars and rumors of wars, threats and threats of wars. But I see that as an intersecting prophecy, if I can call it that; and by intersecting I mean that both prophecies along with many others, and there are many others, they seem to cross paths one with the other. And this in the sense that Syria is the path, or if
you prefer catalyst to the prophesied attack against Israel; which we know will not succeed.
Isaiah says, “No weapon forged against thee will prosper.” I found this Jerusalem Post article from just this morning, very interesting. It confirms that Israel is keenly aware of
what’s really going on in Syria. For those of you went to Israel with us this last time,
we were there on the Golan heights, and our tour guide said they have surveillance from
the Golan right into Syria. And they’re not exaggerating. That was the word I was looking for; they’re not exaggerating when they state that they can literally see the paper that Bashar Al Assad is reading in
the morning. That’s how they are able to see everything that’s going on in Syrian,
that clearly, literally, by the way. Now why do I say that? Because make no mistake about it, Israel is watching Syria very, very, very, very, closely. Did I say very closely? Very closely.
So much so that cease-fire or no cease-fire, and what I was going to say was this is not going to be a cease fire, are you kidding me. Netanyahu has made it very clear, in no uncertain terms that they stand
at the ready on the Golan Heights. You know you would think that the surrounding people that Zechariah 12 refers to, which in the original language of the Hebrew Old Testament, it carries with it the idea that the surrounding people are not only close in proximity geographically,
they’re also close in proximity genetically. This would include all of the people groups
that even today are surrounding Israel; and what’s really interesting is that you would
think they would’ve learned their lesson from, namely 1967 and then 1973. In other words every time Israel has been attacked by the surrounding people, Israel comes up with more land. You know if I’m Israel, and I say this, you know hypothetically, and kind of humorously. If I’m Israel, I’m thinking to myself: hey, attack us. God is for us, and if God is for us who can be against us. And every time you attack us we get more of our land back. Back. That’s our land back. So well, it’s with this
geopolitical backdrop which is super busy that I want to turn our attention to what I like to call the big three. I believe that the world is now ripe and ready for the antichrist
to control a one world government, a one world economy, and a one world religion. And again truth be known this is what everything in the Middle East is now pointing to. This is what I believe everything is, the direction everything is headed. Let’s start with this one world government, which I believe is now on the brink are coming to pass by virtue of the world’s willingness
to like never before accept a charismatic leader who can provide what they see as a
solution to the world’s problems. And the world has serious problems. Both Daniel
seven verses 16 to 24, and Revelation 13:1 describe a world system that will be unveiled by the beast as the most powerful horn. And this powerful figure will in effect defeat
the other nine horns; and then commence with an all-out war on all of God’s people. We also have a description of this 10 nation confederacy, as it’s called. It’s in Daniel two verses 41 and 42, which is a prophetic picture of this final one world government. Both Daniel and John received this vision, this revelation of this final ruling world empire under the control
of none other than the antichrist himself. By the way let me parenthetically say that
some prophecy experts are suggesting that we’re also now possibly witnessing the fulfillment of Daniel 11. What’s Daniel 11 about. Daniel 11 is about the king of the South and the
king of the North; and specifically what today is known as the northern thunder. What’s northern thunder. Well it’s a military exercise that is now underway in the northern reaches of Saudi Arabia just below the border with Iraq. Did you about this? You probably didn’t; but you did hear about the latest poll. You did hear about the Republican and the Democrat front runners; and you did hear about what they’re saying about each other and to each other. You heard about that, right? Yeah. According to the Russia Times, back on February 15; this was prior to the
launch of this military exercise; it’s the largest in history in that region. And on the
on 15 February they were reporting that 20 countries were to be involved. This is huge.
One source reported that there are actually now more than 25 countries that are part of this military effort, which has already been launched. And it’s unlikely that, I know I had to dig to find this. I had to go to a lot of my different newsfeeds and plow through
all of the political stuff in order to find out what’s was going on with that the Syria
so-called cease-fire. What’s happening with Saudi Arabia. They were threatening to invade Syria and here’s all these threats coming from Russia: don’t even think about it. Saudi Arabia saying we are thinking about it, we’re going to do it. And Russia’s saying it’s going to be the beginning of World War III. And everybody else is a well, bring it. This is all going on. Oh, by the way, did you hear about this? Probably not. Ynet news on Wednesday reported that Israel’s natural gas potential was triple
the amount they originally thought. Now let me put this into perspective. The amount they
originally thought was colossal; and now it’s believed that it’s triple that. You know this to me is looking a lot like it has got to be the hook, the hook that God himself puts in the
mouth of this Russian, Iranian led alliance, who will fail in their nuclear attack against
Israel, in Ezekiel 38. And here’s another reason why we’re virtually talking about Isaiah 17
and Ezekiel 38 every week. In verse 13 of Ezekiel 38 it mentioned that Saudi Arabia will protest this Russian, Iranian led attack against Israel; which is for the purpose we’re told of taking a spoil. So would’t it stand to reason that the hook that is placed in their mouth is that
of this natural gas find, which is now as of last week believed to be three times, triple
the amount. Remember when I shared, this a while back. I actually had heard it from Amir Tsarfati. He’s a Jewish brother in Christ. This is a Bible prophecy teacher. You can get his, you can download his app: “Behold Israel”, “Behold Israel”. I love this guy.
He was privy to some information. This is a couple years ago now where Putin had a meeting
with Netanyahu; and Putin was willing to throw Assad and Syria with him under the bus,
so to speak, in order to get a stake in the natural gas that Israel had found. And Netanyahu rejected his proposal, and so Amir Tsarfati made the comment, he said,
“so now what Putin could not get from Netanyahu, he will take by force.” Hence the Russian, Iranian led attack against Israel for the purpose of, as one suggested, take the SP off of spoil and you get oil. You remember back in 2008 when out of nowhere Russia invades Georgia. I’m not talking about the US Georgia. I’m talking about Georgia in that region, the country. And the
question was, why? Well because the major natural gas line that supplies natural gas to that
whole area, geographically is located in Georgia. He wanted it. He wanted it. Don’t ever underestimate
this Vladimir Putin. Don’t ever underestimate this Vladimir Putin. I know some people speak very favorably of him. He’s a very dangerous man. He’s a very dangerous…oh I heard that he bought his Jewish teacher an apartment in Israel, and you know he’s very pro-Israel. Not, he’s very pro-Israel’s natural gas and oil; that’s what he’s pro-Israel about. Well suffice
it to say it’s can be very interesting to see what develops in the upcoming days and weeks. I’m sorry if I’m kind of all over the place here, but I want to get back to the antichrist controlling a one world government, religion, and economy. I would suggest that once the antichrist has gained power he will also use this power to control the world economically and religiously.
In other words when he gets this governmental control he will also control the world economically
and religiously. As for a one world economy, Revelation 13 verses 16 and 17 tells us that he will implement a mark without which nobody can buy or sell; and it will be on or in the
forehand, on or in the forehead. Now two things that point to this prophecy, I believe being
fulfilled, is first the technology exists today for such a mark to be implemented; and it has. The technology has been available for this and it’s just a matter of implementing it. Here’s the second one. I believe that what we’re witnessing with regard to the collapse of the world’s
currencies, which I would argue seems imminent; and which will in turn usher in this cashless
system; I believe that is the telltale sign that we are so close to this prophecy being
fulfilled, and the antichrist being revealed. Back on February 8 Forbes published an article titled, “Cheap Oil Edging Us Toward Global Economic Collapse”. Now connect these dots, yeah, cheap oil and economic collapse. Everything we read about it’s all inter-connected. All of these prophecies are intersecting prophecies because all of these geopolitical developments are interconnected. Interestingly on the same day February 8, CNN ran an article titled: Global Currency Collapse: Winners and Losers”, in which they state, and I quote, “global currencies are crashing left and right”. Well you have that, Pastor JD, the stock market was back up this last
week; and there there was some gains, you know this last. Okay, yeah, well let me
just say this in love, my hope is not in the stock market, and my hope is not in this world, and my hope is certainly not in money. My hope is in the Lord and his soon returned for his bride. Well this brings us to revelation 17 verses one through 18, which is a description of the one world
religion using the metaphor of the great harlot. Now speculation abounds as to what this one world religion will be like; but one thing is certain, it will be under the control of
the antichrist. I have a scenario that I think is very plausible, that the antichrist when
he by force enforces the seven year agreement, peace agreement, he will allow Israel to rebuild their temple and somehow, specifically centered in Jerusalem; this one world religion will be such that Muslims can worship. The Christians on Sunday can worship. The Muslims on
Friday; the Jews on Saturday in their temple, and the Christians on Sunday. And it will all be centered there in Jerusalem on the Temple Mount. Somehow, I don’t know exactly the details of how
that’s all the play out; but that’s what it would seem to indicated. And by the way there was a video that was produced in January where the Pope, Pope Francis had all but stated that the world now needs to come together as one world religion. And he, of course made the statement, which was not a surprise; Pope John Paul II before him, I have photos of him kissing
the Quran, kissing the Quran; and he is made, in fact in 1995 Pope John Paul II brought together all the world’s religions to all pray to the same God; and here’s Pope Francis in January
saying that Muslims and Christians worship the same God. So somehow there’s going to be this one world religion where all of a sudden now, it’s all universal. And one final thought,
the word Catholic means universal. You know how I found that out? You learn something new everyday, right? This was many years ago, I was taking my wife out. It was on Valentines day and I took her to dinner before our Saturday night of prayer meeting at our church. And the waiter was like, hey are you guys doing anything special for Valentine’s Day? You know, and I said well after dinner we’re going to go to church. He was kind of like, Church? And then he said, are you Catholics? I was dumbfounded. What? Is there something that? I have ashes on my forehead. What? I mean, you know why would you ask that question? And he said, well Catholic means universal, all religions. and it was one of those moments where I bit my tongue. I wanted to go into this whole… I was going to give the guy a prophecy update right then and there. Dude, do you know what you’re saying. But I didn’t. My wife was giving me that look. Don’t do it. You’re…The chef will spit in our food. Don’t do it. Don’t do it. Well it does seem that there’s going to be some form of
a world universal religion under the control of the antichrist. Now here’s the thing. For
those of us who are born again of the Spirit of God, we’re not going to be here when all of this comes about. And this because we’re going to be raptured first. Let me say this, and I’ve said
this before, I’ll never tire saying this actually, it’s been said that actually the rapture is a signless even. And what that means is there’s nothing that has to happen before the rapture happens. This is why we call it the doctrine of imminence. But there are things that need to happen
before everything else happens. Example: before the one world economy is implemented by the antichrist, not only do the global economies have to collapse first, but also before the
one world government is brought under control the antichrist the global governments need
to collapse as well. Now I ask you this question, just here in the US; and by the way there’s going to be elections in Iran as well upcoming; but I ask you in terms of the government of the United States of America, do you see that as being possible for the United States of America, governmentally and economically could collapse? I do. I do. I think of what Jesus said in Matthew 24, these things must come to pass. In other word it has to happen. And not only does it have to happen, it has to happen first. If you were ask me what one of the main reasons was that I was so convinced that we’re so close to the rapture, this would still be at the top of my list. And here’s why say that: I need you to think this through with me. What we are witnessing in real time, right before
our very eyes, is just the beginning of what’s ultimately fulfilled during the seven-year
tribulation. Now stay with me. If we’re witnessing that which finds its fulfillment during the
seven-year tribulation now begin to come to pass; and the rapture has to happen first; then how close are we really. Is this not Luke 21:28, one of my favorite verses, where Jesus says, when you see these things, key words, being to come to pass; look up and lift up your
head for your redemption draws nigh. What things is he talking about? All of these prophecies
that we’re given where Jesus said, I tell you what’s going to happen before it happened,
so when it happens, you’ll believe. And believers when you see it begin to happen that you’ll look up and lift up your head, because that means I’m coming to take you out, first. Well pastor I had a friend, of a friend, of a friend tell me that their rethinking the pre-tribulation
rapture. Just as I said that I looked at the clock and I realize I shouldn’t have said that, looking at the clock because I don’t have enough time to refute it. I get emails and comments all the time from people saying, you know there’s this battle going on; I don’t know what to say, they’re
telling me that you know being pretrib is a false teaching. And that those who believe in the pre-tribulation rapture are going to the really disappointed when it doesn’t happen; and a lot of them are going to fall away from the Lord. To which I just would say, no I won’t tell you what I would…What I would simply say is, that’s not what my Bible says,. That’s not what my bible says. And if you really believe that the rapture takes place at any time other than prior to the seven
year tribulation, then God forbid you do this; but here’s what you have to do; you would
have to tear out of your Bible large portions of Scripture, Old and New Testament, Old and New Testament, to come up with that. Yeah but I heard that it was just back in the 1800s that they started talking about the rapture. To which I just sort of again, I’ll be nice; I just say well that’s
that’s a surprise, I didn’t know the apostle Paul was alive in 18th and 19th century, because it was the apostle Paul who first talked about the rapture. Oh but not the pre-tribulation
rapture. Oh well you said the 1800s. Is that BC or AD, because in my Old Testament of my Bible I actually see a pre tribulation rapture in the book of Genesis. Yeah, his name Enoch who walked with God and was no more, for God took him. And Enoch was pre-flood. Enoch was raptured pre flood. Israel, Noah and his family, a picture of Israel; they go into the flood and are saved in the midst of the flood, just like Shadrak, Mishak, Abednego in the midst of the, by the way, Seven times hotter furnace, Seven not 6, not 8; you’ll forgive my cynicism, Seven. Shadrak, Mishak, and Abednego are saved in the midst of the Seven times hotter fiery furnace just like Israel will be saved in the Seven year tribulation. Where’s Daniel? Oh, he’s pre-furnace, yeah. Again you’ll forget my silliness but Daniel prior to the Seven times hotter furnace is exalted, taken up to a high place, and as such he’s not there; a picture of the church. Oh, how about Joseph, you want to go back to Genesis? Let’s go back to Genesis. How about Joseph. He takes a Gentile bride. Wow, a Gentile bride. Sound familiar? Yeah, pre-famine. Pre-flood, pre-famine, pre-furnace and that’s just three of many types in the Old Testament where the pre-tribulation rapture is mentioned and taught in Scripture. I shouldn’t have done that, it’s too late. I love my chest. Maybe I should just close, yeah. The rapture of the church of Jesus Christ has to happen before the seven-year tribulation. So help me God, it has to happen. I feel better now. Let’s close with Romans 13, because this tells us what to do about it. If the rapture is this close, and it is, by virtue of the fact that we see prophecies that are ultimately fulfilled in the seven year tribulation coming to pass now, and they are. What are we going to do about it? Do this, understanding the present time. The hour has come for you, and I’ll try not to blow out anybodies speakers online, WAKE UP, WAKE UP from your slumber. Here’s why: because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is nearly over. The day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness, and put on the armor of light; and I’ll add before it’s foo late, before it’s too late. It’s almost here. Our salvation is nearer now. Our redemption draweth nearer now. You need to wake up. Wake up from your spiritual slumber. The hour has come. Don’t hit the snooze button. If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, and you hear the sounding of the alarm; you need to wake up to the reality of this present time. We are at the last moments, the last seconds of human history as we know it. And the next event on God’s prophetic clock is the rapture of the church, which can happen at any time. Jesus said at an hour you expect not. Why don’t you all stand, we’ll pray. Appreciate your patients, by the way. Loving Heavenly Father I’m so thankful to You for the privilege that is mine every week to talk about Bible
prophecy. And Lord I’m so thankful to You that when I teach Your
word I can teach about the blessed hope that when that trumpet sounds, soon and very soon, the dead in Christ will rise first and we who are alive and remain will be caught up to meet You in the air. Lord I don’t think there’s a one of us that can hardly wait for You to return and take us out of this world. But Lord I’m also aware of those to whom this is terrifying, and
it’s terrifying because they’re not right with You. I pray that today whoever they are, whether they’re here in this church or are watching by some other mean online, I pray that today
they would get right with You. That they would repent, wake up, call upon You, believing in
their heart and confessing with their mouth that you Jesus are Lord of lords, and King
of kings; that you rose from the dead paying in full for all of our sin. Lord I pray that
they will today, in Jesus name, Amen.

  1. Dig in folks and do not slumber in battle! Time is short and we need to keep praying for those still needing redemption. Love you all in Christ!

  2. Why not analyze the situation from another angle? What are the chances of anyone surviving the 6 trumpets and 7 bowls? If most are dead, then the rapture becomes redundant. Jesus can then skip the rapture and initiate '1st resurrection'.

  3. Oh Pastor JD thank you so very much for a GREAT prophecy update. Your faithfulness will be rewarded. We as your online church always in prayer for you, your family, and your ministry. You just don't know how blessed we are by your teaching , so we wanna bless you and calvary chapel kaneohe financially and prayerfully ,faithfully to further God's kingdom that through your ministry many souls be saved in these last hours before the rapture….. Indeed the Lord's return is very close . MARANATHA , O LORD JESUS PLEASE COME QUICKLY !!! Our ONLY hope is YOU and Your coming again to remove us out of this world NOT our home….

  4. Thank you Pastor J D for todays update!!  You are a gift to us all.  Your understanding of God's Word and what it says greatly edifies many of us who are yearning and waiting for our Lord to snatch us up and to take us home so we can be with HIM for all of eternity.  We are all weary, we groan within our inner most being from not being with our FIRST LOVE!!!!  We see the hand writing on the wall.  No science degree or rocket science credentials needed to see that things are spiraling down into the very depths of no return, end game, it's over.  Keep preaching brother/PASTOR J D!  God Bless and keep you always and forever!  May you be uplifted knowing that you are loved by many and your service for Christ Jesus will surly be rewarded.  Love you!

  5. As Pastor JD spoke "the dead in Christ shall rise first" at 36:36, a door creaked open. Then again as he said "and we who are alive and remain will be caught up to meet you in the air" Many blessings to you Pastor JD, well done! Praise Jesus for your passion and love of the Lord and His TRUTH!

  6. Ok as Christians we are saved, getting saved and will be saved. If you put your faith in Jesus you saved. And when you die or when the rapture takes place you will be saved. Getting saved is the hard part because it is all to do with the now factor. It does not matter in terms of being saved regarding pre-mid-post tribulation beliefs as long as you hold tight to the core beliefs. I believe in mid trib rapture! Why!! Just a few things that signify this. Christ ministry was 3.5 before He went up, Enoch lived to 365 before he went up. Gabriel said to Daniel the time if Jacobs trouble is 3.5 years times, time and half a time. The question is not if but when the rapture will take place? The first half of the tribulation is a time of testing and the faithful will be raptured on the eve of the last 3.5 yrs the great tribulation, referring to a lessor tribulation.

  7. Pastor Farag, I believe you'll find this interesting.
    Sandy Hook incident was a "test" or transitional town.. influenced by the Bahai faith… TOTAL NWO agenda!!
    Since 1983, it has influenced the U.N..

  8. Thank you Pastor JD for this message.

    As we ARE SO CLOSE to His return for His bride, wouldn't it be expedient and wise to return to TWO prophecy updates EVERY week?

    Maranatha!

  9. Pastor JD did a teaching on falling away, he said the original King James said departure . So it would say departure instead of falling away

  10. Thank you Pastor J.D …………I've been following faithfully not to miss your prophecy update for years now and also commenting on your video for the first time….The Lord is marking the foreheads of His people as we speak……..and will remove the HELPER very soon…..I'll refrain from dates setting but as for urgency level ………………THIS IS IT…..Shalom

  11. Thanks Pastor JD, excellent update, you nailed it, prophecy is coming to pass everywhere we look now. I believe in the Pre-Tribulation Rapture for 3 primary reasons – 1. scripture overwhelmingly supports this. Post tribers hold to some verses that seem to be ambiguous but God has provided these verses to give hope to those (Jews and Gentiles) that were not ready and must face the Tribulation eg.        "Come my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you. Hide yourself, as it were for a moment, until the indignation is past. For behold, the Lord has come out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity, the earth will also disclose her blood, and will no more cover her slain"     Isaiah 26.20-21   I also believe the God put some 'confusing' verses, regarding the Rapture, in the Bible to test the hearts of men to find out what their true feelings toward Him are. 2. When you look at Biblical eschatology, the Pre-Tribulation Rapture is the only scenario that makes any sense 3. I know God is a loving Father and I believe in His mercy for His children.

  12. PASTOR!!! YOU MUST READ THIS PLEASE…………….( YOU WON'T REGRET IT! ) ( Someone, please pass it to Pastor JD…thks! )

    You are that FAITHFUL SERVANT who is giving the "right food at the right time" concerning the SUDDEN RETURN OF THE MASTER and the rest of the "WICKED SERVANT'S" non pre-tribulation Rapture position are attacking yours ( its scriptural )…..PASTOR, THE LORD JESUS HIMSELF TAUGHT THE PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE and not someone teaching it only in the 1800s or the Jesuits invented it etc…etc…AND it can be PROVEN in the scriptures as follows:

    Jesus taught it to Martha in John 11:21-26! It is SOOOO descriptive of 2 groups of believers and what will be happening to them on that "last day" ( Rapture day! ) because one group who are already dead will be raised and the other group who are alive at that same moment will "NEVER DIE" on that same "last day"!!! ( Changed in the twinkling of an eye just as the dead are being raised to NEVER EXPERIENCE DEATH EVER! ). ISN'T THAT THE RAPTURE??

    AND, just a week or two later, Jesus Himself DEMONSTRATES A TYPE of the 7 years tribulation period by HE HIMSELF going into Jerusalem to finish up His LAST 7 DAYS OF "TRIBULATION" ( Nisan 10 to Nisan 17 ) AFTER HE HAS RAISED LAZARUS FROM THE DEAD TO SHOW THAT THE RAPTURE MUST HAPPEN FIRST AND after that, have the book of Romans chapter 6 tell His Church that those who believes in Him have already been "crucified" and "rose" together with Him during that final 7 days of His tribulation and THEREFORE, WILL NOT HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE 7 YEARS TRIBULATION AS HIS BODY!!!!!!!

    In other words, those who are actually preaching and teaching contrary to what Jesus Himself had taught in John 11;21-26 ARE actually the ones who are preaching LIES and not you OR anyone who is preaching and teaching the same pre-tribulation Rapture as you……( of course there are also those who ARE preaching the pre position who are in error with their TWISTED OSAS teachings as well, I understand that, which does show how Satan has infiltrated the Church from many angles, which is another thing altogether no need to be discussed here )

    I really hope you see and get this, as you can now "CORRECT" WITH FULL "AUTHORITY", ALL your critics about their erroneous positions which can tantamount to even indirectly calling Jesus a liar if they call you a liar about teaching the pre-tribulation Rapture!!!!! God Bless you!!!!!

  13. Job 41:1 "Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook?" The name of Israel's gas field is called Leviathan. Coincidence? Is this the hooks of Ezekiel?

  14. I have noticed a gradual lock out of info about whats going on in the east.Soon the only news bit will be what the Gov wants to tell us.It will become harder and harder as we go along to get the truth .I really hate to throw in Hitler ,etc but this is axactly how he did it.I pesonally just put my confidence in the Lord .I know he is not fooled and he is in control .

  15. One thing is clear that we will be going thru a time of great trouble and persecution,A great testing of your faith.Many will fall away. The time for sitting on the fence is over.Draw close to God and be part of a purified body of Christ.Also history shows that during a time of persecution the church has grown.Satan just can't win ,Praise the Lord.

  16. When you talk oil ,Think about Saudi Arabia puting up to 49% of there oild holdings onto the stock market.If you think about it,that is amajor game changer that they would give up that much power,when they have enjoyed a monopoly for so long.

  17. The argument is that some think triblation starts and then mid way the great triblation starts,If I remember right the first part of tribulation there is a false peace .Wether we go at the beginning or the middle I know he is faithfull.But will we enter in with out trials of great testing,I can only say ,be ready for trials if they come.Will some be matyred? We know some all ready have.

  18. Are children of the world all raptured? Is Matt 24: 19 got something to do with children being raptured that it would be dreadful for mothers.

  19. If Obama became head of UN wouldn't that be highest seat since under the TPP deal we've surrendered our sovernty and become the N American Union.

  20. Love you brother for your clarity in your teaching as it lines up with current events I'm finding most in my church don't want to hear these truth,that scares me because you can't warn those who won't listen.

  21. Pastor JD, another great prophecy update. Please seek the Lord about speaking more on the pre-trib rapture. Many Christians are being ridiculed by surprisingly other Christian, (this is completely ridiculous and its a tool of Satan). Anyway great job. I look forward each week to your updates and share with all my brethren. Bro. Kenny

  22. Thank you Pastor for your preaching, I was far from Jesus Christ and He pulled me back a few weeks ago, I wanted to be closer to Him and a few weeks ago a number of sins of which I was committing had to be sacrificed on Jesus altar, these sins where only given up because Jesus knew I was series and only then did My Heavenly Father give me the power through The Holy Spirit for me to do just that, I am free from them because of Him and Him alone, I have give Jesus Christ my life my heart and my soul, and I no that He has brought me back because I believe as you do and many Pastor that Jesus is coming back soon to get His own, us His children, I want to thank you for your teaching and your Godly stance, from Lawrence in Northern Ireland God Bless

  23. Just something to think on. The 3 in the furnace, were saved from the flames while in the furnace, Daniel was saved from the lions while in the den. I do believe we will be saved from tribulation while in the tribulation, then the rapture takes place prior to the wrath.
    Love your Prophecy updates and look forward to meeting you!

  24. Pastor your thesis statement and updates settles my spirit, provides clear vision as I stand watch and I am grateful for your messages.  My favorite song lately is "I Can Almost See the Lights of Home".  Much Love to the Church!

  25. Hi Pastor J.D.
    One question I like to ask you, hope it won't offend you. You mention about Valentine. Do you still believe in that pagan celebration. Shalom!

  26. Every week I look forward to hear what Pastor J.D speaks about. I have found that same conclusion that this election is covering up so much that is going on in the area's of prophecy that it is absolutely amazing. Thanks for digging Pastor J.D.

  27. Enoch walked faithfully with God; then he was no more, because God took him away.
    Also Believers who are in Christ Jesus God, then we will be no more, because we will be taken for the marriage supper of the Lamb.

  28. Pastor JD…I'd love to spend a morning with you sometime and discuss things…like what Heaven may be like!  You are a voice of calm and common-sense in a world of idiocy and panic.  Thank you, Brother!As far as "The Mark of the Beast" is concerned…have you every considered that the follow-on to ISIS and its leader may be the Antichrist, and "The Mark" may be the ISIS headband and armband?  If this were the case, you could not buy or sell in a marketplace, that may be "technologically backward" due to EMP or other world-wide disasters, unless you convert to Islam.  Think about it.  Is it a possibility?  It could be other things, but perhaps this is another scenario.

  29. I have not been drunk in at least 30 years but I am right now. It's hard to key this with my bad eyesight. To say the least I'm struggling. Please pray for my wife. The world has turned against us and I'm thinking bout bugging out. This world is not my home.

  30. Pastor, I believe if you will look at the map of Turkey on the Syrian border you will see the hook which must be flown over to the north of Alepo. This I believe is the complaint Turkey has used to shoot down the Russian plane. Just sayin' it's already happened.

  31. Thank you again, Pastor Farag!  Thank you for the news that is not being told.  You are one of two pastors on line that I can find who are talking about the rapture, and I don't know of any other Christians talking about it.  If I mention it, there just isn't the interest, as if people are not wanting their hopes up?  I have always longed for Christ's return and my hope has never been disappointed.  So thank you for your updates, since not many other pastors are interested.  God bless you!

  32. We have a political fiasco that is hijacking all of us by the crappy media trying to push hillary over the finish line as the next presidente and the trumpster being to me just a bad actor as a white privileged moron! come lord jesus..there is no solid person to run this government! this is perfect for the antichrist to be soon on the scene and were gone'!

  33. Secrets of the 10 lost tribes…..WALLS, LAND, LIVESTOCK and Taxes: (There’s Judah, then there’s Ephraim Northern House of Israel.) Daniel 11:39 He will deal with the strongest fortresses with the help of a FOREIGN god. He will confer honor on those he acknowledges, causing them to rule over many and distributing LAND as a reward.
    Ezekiel 38:10 “Adonai ELOHIM says: ‘When that day comes, thoughts will well up in your mind, and you will devise a sinister scheme. 11 You will say, “I am going to invade this land of UNWALLED villages; I will take by surprise these people who are at peace, living securely, all in places without WALLS, bars or gates. 12 I will seize the spoil and take the plunder.” You will attack the former ruins that are now inhabited and come against the people gathered from the nations, who have acquired LIVESTOCK and OTHER WEALTH and are living in the central parts of the land.
    LAND: Obama administration’s Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal and remember the Nevada-Bundy ranch, the Oregon standoff, and the acquisition of the largest, over 50%, American pork producer and packer by the Chinese, New National Monuments and this list keeps growing.
    Matthew 21:43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
    (Conclusion: A sinister scheme, how about 911? Unwalled Villages: how about that non-existent wall between Mexico and USA? Seize the spoil: How about shipping jobs out of the country: NAFTA; seizing land and livestock illegally; How about drowning people in debt? Is there any gold in the US Treasury left: no audits so how would anyone know?
    What nation has God been gathering people to? There's Judah, modern Israel, then there's the USA where 2 million Jews came out of Russia and Europe after 1892 until 1922 before the German Holocaust so that their lives could be preserved just like Joseph in Egypt.)
    Genesis 45:5 Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life.
    Genesis 48:19 And his father refused, and said, I know it, my son, I know it: he also shall become a people, and he also shall be great: but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become a multitude of nations. 20 And he blessed them that day, saying, In thee shall Israel bless, saying, God make thee as Ephraim and as Manasseh: and he set Ephraim before Manasseh. 21 And Israel said unto Joseph, Behold, I die: but God shall be with you, and bring you again unto the land of your fathers. 22 Moreover I have given to thee ONE PORTION ABOVE thy brethren, which I took out of the hand of the Amorite with my sword and with my bow.
    (Conclusion: Ephraim got a double portion of the blessing for land and wealth. What country has been the blessing for wealth and land for many years now? The "go to" country that everyone still wants to be in?)
    If there is any doubt left that we ARE in the latter days, maybe this post will help you understand. Wake up people, get some Eyes to see: Read the Bible)

  34. Who are the Two (2) witnesses of Revelation 11? Complete Jewish Bible used to quote verses below:
    1st: Written WORD: Torah (Old Testament) and the Bible, the WORDS of God: (Eyes to see for the ones that can Read the WORD.) 2nd: Spoken WORD: People that speak the WORDS of God: (Ears to hear for the Hearers of the WORD)
    (The Bible, both Old and New Testament will always have two (2) witnesses, contained within itself, to speak of anything Prophetic.) 2 Corinthians 13:1 This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three WITNESSES shall every WORD be established. Isaiah 44:8 Don’t be frightened, don’t be afraid — Didn’t I tell you this long ago? I foretold it, and YOU are my WITNESSES. Is there any God besides me? There is no other Rock — I know of none.” (Spoken WORDS of God)
    Exodus 20:1 Then God said all these words:….. (The 10 Commandments)
    Exodus 34:1 ADONAI said to Moshe, “Cut yourself two tablets of stone like the first ones; and I will inscribe on the tablets the Words that were on the first tablets, which you broke.
    Exodus 34:27 ADONAI said to Moshe, “Write these Words down, because they are the terms of the COVENANT I have made with you and with Isra’el.”
    Exodus 34:28 Moshe was there with ADONAI forty days and forty nights, during which time he neither ate food nor drank water. [ADONAI] wrote on the tablets the Words of the Covenant, the Ten Words.
    Isaiah 29:18 On that day the deaf will HEAR the WORDS of a Book, and out of gloom and darkness the eyes of the blind will SEE.
    John 1:1 In the beginning was the WORD, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
    1 John 1:1 The WORD, which gives life! He existed from the beginning. We have heard him, we have seen him with our eyes, we have contemplated him, we have touched him with our hands! Colossians 3:16 And be thankful — 16 let the WORD of the Messiah, in all its richness, LIVE in you, as you teach and counsel each other in all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude to God in your hearts.
    Hebrews 4:12 See, the WORD of God is ALIVE!
    Revelation 1:3 Blessed are the reader and hearers of the WORDS of this prophecy, provided they obey the things written in it! For the time is near! (Jesus parable of the 10 virgins, the OIL spoken of is God's WORDs.)
    Revelation 11:3 “Also I will give power to my two witnesses; and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, dressed in sackcloth.” 4 These are the two olive trees (OIL-WORDS (the Old and New)) and the two menorahs (LIGHT-(Old and New) standing before the Lord of the earth. 5 If anyone tries to do them harm, fire comes out of their mouth and consumes their enemies — yes, if anyone tries to harm them, that is how he must die. 6 They have the authority to shut up the sky, so that no rain falls during the period of their prophesying; also they have the authority to turn the waters into blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they want.
    Revelation 19:13 He was wearing a robe that had been soaked in blood, and the name by which he is called is, “THE WORD OF GOD."

  35. April 30, 1789 is when America was consecrated to G-d by POTUS Washington and Congress at St. Paul's Chapel in New York. That same day is Iyar 4 on the Hebrew Calendar: Israel Independence Day.

  36. Year of Yeshua's (Jesus) return
    (2 Witnesses: John and Daniel)
    1967 Arab–Israeli War, or Third Arab–Israeli War, was fought between June 5 and 10, 1967
    1967 +46 =2013
    2013 + 3= 2016
    John 2:19 Yeshua (Jesus) answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up again.” 20 The Judeans said, “It took 46 years to build this Temple, and you’re going to raise it in THREE days?” 21 But the “temple” he had spoken of was his body.
    1 Corinthians 6:19-20 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
    1 Corinthians 12:27 Now you together constitute the body of the Messiah, and individually you are parts of it.
    Numbers 14:33-34 "And your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms, until your carcasses be wasted in the wilderness. After the number of the days in which you searched the land, even forty days, each DAY for a YEAR, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years…" (Day for a year principle)
    1967 (6 Day War- Israel gained the city of Jerusalem)
    Daniel 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. 25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem (1967, 6 day war) unto the Messiah the Prince (anointed-one governor in Hebrew) shall be seven weeks (7×7=49 years).
    1967+49=2016 Think Hebrew calendar, it starts in Sept. Feast of trumpets.
    Genesis 5:23 and all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years: (day for a year principle. One year with the Bride, then He returns and sets up His kingdom)

  37. How long was Yeshua’s (Jesus) ministry?
    Exodus 21:1 “These are the rulings you are to present to them: 2 “If you purchase a Hebrew slave, he is to work six (6) years; but in the seventh (7), he is to be given his freedom without having to pay anything. 3 If he came single, he is to leave single; if he was married when he came, his wife is to go with him when he leaves. 4 But if his master gave him a wife, and she bore him sons or daughters, then the wife and her children will belong to her master, and he will leave by himself. 5 Nevertheless, if the slave declares, ‘I love my master, my wife and my children, so I don’t want to go free,’ 6 then his master is to bring him before God; and there at the door or doorpost, his master is to pierce his ear with an awl; and the man will be his slave for life.
    Genesis 31:41 These twenty years I’ve been in your house — I served you fourteen years for your two daughters and SIX years for your flock; and you changed my wages ten times!
    (Jacob served six (6) years for the sheep)
    (Exodus 21: 1-6 has many deep spiritual insights. Ears to Hear! John 10:27…my sheep know my voice…. Sod in Hebrew)
    (Yeshua (Jesus) was purchased as a slave. He already served in His ministry for six (6) years and he was set free in the beginning of the seventh (7th) year. He will return and take the Bride, spend one (1) year with her (Deut. 24:5), then the kingdom of God will be set up for 1000 years under his leadership.)
    Matthew 27:5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.6 And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood. 7 And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in.8 Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day. 9 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value; 10 and gave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord appointed me.

  38. ok, cliff note version: And these are the keys to understanding:
    Deuteronomy 20:7 “‘Is there a man here who is engaged to a woman, but hasn’t married her yet? He should go BACK HOME; otherwise he may die fighting, and another man will marry her.’ (Yeshua went home, right hand side, sitting with God.)
    Deuteronomy 24:5 “If a man has recently married his wife, he is not to be subject to military service; he is to be free of external obligations and left at home for ONE year to make his new wife happy.
    (One year with the bride, then he can go out to war, All the events of Revelation: Seals, Trumpets, Thunder, Wrath happen in that one year, and YES things are being set up for it now.)
    Daniel 9:24 “Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and for your holy city for putting an end to the transgression, for making an end of sin, for forgiving iniquity, for bringing in everlasting justice, for setting the seal on vision and prophet, and for anointing the Especially Holy Place. 25 Know, therefore, and discern that seven weeks [of years] (7×7=49) will elapse between the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until an anointed prince comes. (1967 the 6 Day War, gained the City of Jerusalem) 1967+49=2016. …..It states rebuild Jerusalem, not Israel. (for anointing the Especially Holy Place-the hearts of HIS believers, HIS bride).
    Daniel 9: 27 And he (JESUS, Yeshua) shall confirm the covenant (the New Covenant) with many for one (1) week: and in the MIDST of the week he (JESUS, Yeshua) shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even UNTIL THE CONSUMMATION (wedding), and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
    (Jesus had to be the one to stop the sacrifices, He WAS the sacrifice).
    Jesus ministry lasted 6 years! It had to be 6 years, he worked to gain the sheep!
    Genesis 31:41 These twenty years I’ve been in your house — I served you fourteen years for your two daughters and SIX YEARS for your flock; and you changed my wages ten times!
    (Jacob served six (6) years for the sheep)
    Jeremiah 50:6 My people have been LOST SHEEP. My shepherds made them go astray, turning them loose in the mountains. As they wandered from mountain to hill, they lost track of where their home is.
    Matthew 15:24 He said, “I was sent only to the LOST SHEEP of the house of Isra’el.”
    Yeshua (Jesus) was purchased as a slave. All of the rules of a Hebrew slave applied to him. He already served in His ministry for six (6) years and he was set free in the beginning of the seventh (7th) year. He will return and take the Bride, spend one (1) year with her (Deut. 24:5), then the kingdom of God will be set up for 1000 years under his leadership.)
    Exodus 21:1 “These are the rulings you are to present to them: 2 “If you purchase a Hebrew slave, he is to work six (6) years; but in the seventh (7), he is to be given his freedom without having to pay anything. 3 If he came single, he is to leave single; if he was married when he came, his wife is to go with him when he leaves. (Judah was never divorced, think on that a bit, its deep.)
    4 But if his master gave him a wife, and she bore him sons or daughters, then the wife and her children will belong to her master, and he will leave by himself. (JESUS left to prepare us a home)
    5 Nevertheless, if the slave declares, ‘I love my master, my wife and my children, so I don’t want to go free,’ 6 then his master is to bring him before God; and there at the door or doorpost, his master is to PIERCE HIS EAR with an awl; and the man will be his slave for life. (Jesus was brought to the Door,(think Passover) and pierced).
    (Exodus 21: 1-6 has many deep spiritual insights if you have PIERCED EARS TO HEAR! John 10:27…my sheep know my voice).
    Matthew 27:5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.6 And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the PRICE OF BLOOD. 7 And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in.8 Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day. 9 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value; 10 and gave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord appointed me.

  39. Please be in prayer on this: 3 Witnesses: Matthew, Mark, John
    Matthew 24:20 Pray that you will not have to escape in WINTER or on the Sabbath.
    Mark 13:18 Pray that it may not happen in WINTER.

    March 9, 2016 is a Full Solar Eclipse and a New moon, and a Super moon.

    John 11:9 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve (12) hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world. (12 hours, Spring Equinox)

    John 11:14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead. 15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him. ……17 Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four (4) days already. ….40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest SEE the GLORY of God?
    This upcoming March 20, 2016, a Sunday is the Spring Equinox with a 12 hour day. Three (3) days later is Wednesday. The 13th day Adar 2 is March 23, 2016 is a Full moon, Partial Lunar eclipse, and The Fast of Esther (Ta’anit)

    March 20, 2016 is the first day of spring; then the 21, 22, then March 23 would be the 4th day. (Lazarus: 4 days in the tomb).

    Esther 3:12 Then were the king’s scribes called on the thirteenth (13th) day of the first month (Nisan), and there was written according to all that Haman had commanded unto the king’s lieutenants, and to the governors that were over every province, and to the rulers of every people of every province according to the writing thereof, and to every people after their language; in the name of king Ahasuerus was it written, and sealed with the king’s ring.

    April 2, 2015 was also Nisan 13th … What happened that day? ….. https://www.whitehouse.gov/…/statement-president-framework-… USA POTUS: THE PRESIDENT: Good afternoon, everybody. Today, the United States — together with our allies and partners — has reached a historic understanding with Iran, which, if fully implemented, will prevent it from obtaining a NUCLEAR WEAPON……

    Esther 3:13 And the letters were sent by posts into all the king’s provinces, to destroy, TO KILL, and to cause to perish, ALL Jews, both young and old, little children and women, in one day, even upon the thirteenth (13th) day of the twelfth (12th) month, which is the month Adar, and to take the spoil of them for a prey.

    This year, 2016, If the extra month Adar 2 had not been added, then March 23rd would have been Passover, (Nisan 14).

    13th day Adar 2 is March 23, 2016: Purim Ta'anit the Fast of Esther. A Hebrew Leap year is called a “pregnant year” because of the extra month of Adar II, so 2016 is the pregnant year. Normally the year of the 16th is NOT a leap year; however, in 2016 it is the end of a lunar cycle, therefore Hebrew calendar calculating REQUIRES the addition of an extra Adar or Leap year. The upcoming year 2017 is NOT pregnant on the projected Hebrew calendar. Normally, for the Hebrew lunisolar calendar, the years 3, 6, 8, 11, 14, 17, and 19 are the pregnant or long (13-month) years of the Metonic (Moon) cycle.

    I am wary of setting dates, but I also hold the view that we who search are rewarded, and as the time closes in on His return, more understanding will be given. Given that, I try to keep an open mind and seriously consider every option when it comes to these things. Insight is a gift in the area of study of prophecy. Yeshua is the Spirit of Prophecy and I strive to know Him more each day. God doesn’t have to do anything when we think He will, He is sovereign. That being said, consider all of this carefully.

    Rev. 19:10 Worship God! For the testimony of Yeshua is the Spirit of prophecy.”

    March 9, 2016 is a Full Solar Eclipse, a New moon, and a Super moon.
    On Sept. 1, 2016 Full Solar Eclipse happens again, 6 new moons/months apart.

    March 22, 2013 to Sept 1, 2016 is 42 New moon months:
    Obama Swearing in dates: Jan. 20, 2009 and 2nd term: Jan. 20, 2013 From October 9, 2009 Nobel Peace Prize to March 22, 2013 Obama enters Jerusalem Israel on 10 Nisan (March 20, 2013 Spring Equinox- leaves before Sabbath which starts on March 22, 2013 =1260 days (or 42 months). (A Test run in 2013, and now the real one coming?)….
    Revelation 11:2 But the court outside the Temple, leave that out; don’t measure it; because it has been given to the Goyim, and they will trample over the holy city for forty-two months.
    Revelation 13:5 It was given a mouth speaking arrogant blasphemies; and it was given authority to act for forty-two months.

    2 Witnesses: Matthew and Mark
    Matthew 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
    Mark 13:20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
    A few other thoughts about the times: Revelation 6:2 I looked, and there in front of me was a white horse (Bronco Stadium Democrat Acceptance speech of Obama in 2008) ); its rider had a BOW (White House Rainbow on June 26, 2015) and was given a crown (Authority); and he rode off as a conqueror to conquer (Arab Spring).

  40. Thank You Pastor Farag for your recent Prophecy Update!! I first heard of "Operation Northern Thunder" from William Mount on YT. (Everyone thinks he's delusional…but I think some of what he has to say relating to "current events" is revealing). Also,first heard of the idea of "Muslims & Christians worshipping the same God" from Rick Warren and there are other pastors who signed some kind of document upholding that idea! Obviously there is "Delusion Everywhere" not just the media! I appreciate ALL your Silliness as I'm SURE most Christians would LOVE to hear more of your OT illustrations (& Confirmations) regarding the Rapture!! We need that today…but hear little of the Truth concerning it! I Pray "The Followers of Christ"to have Faith to Believe as there is Much to deflate our faith in that area!! Mainly due to current affairs in the ME! Thank You So Much for your Teaching Ministry & the Love you have for Christ & Bible Prophecy & sharing it with us!! We are Blessed because of You!! His Blessings to You, Yours & Your Congregation!! 🙂

  41. Thank you for your informative and inspired teaching.  Will you consider doing one on just the rapture and those who go into the tribulation.  I think it is much needed as there is much confusion and controversy on the matter.

  42. Pastor, I am a long-time subscriber. I concur with your discernment and teaching as I believe, world events are moving directly toward the final hours of pre-rapture world history. Today's prophecy update has really sharpened my realization of just how close we are to Christ's return.

  43. Pastor JD, The Angel with millstone is very close to being dropped. You can see it around the world on webcams. http://www.webcamsdemexico.com/ if you could comment on this subject, I would be very grateful. God Bless ♥

  44. Pastor, I think you might have mentioned this in one of your prophecy update videos, about the pope recently speaking up about "open borders" and what impact this means for the sovereign nation of Israel? To me, this "open borders" is a ploy for all nations to comply with, which mean Israel would have to, and we know that is not in God's promise or plan for Israel. This mentioning of "open borders" or "opening our hearts" to immigrants is causing a great division within the Catholic church and is causing more anti semitism like I have never seen. The word that is being thrown around by Catholic proponents, or whoever is for these open borders, is the word "nationalism" as being "immoral."   I was reading an article earlier, "Why anti-Catholicism will rise", and in the comments section a few Catholics mentioned they were appalled by the mentioning of the "open borders" by the pope, but this one Catholic proponent for open borders said, "Catholic is by its very name universal. Any conscientious Catholic must find borders immoral. A necessary immorality perhaps in an imperfect world, but no more than that." Someone responded to him and said, "But the Romans don't agree and don't allow the Greeks to be Catholic….." in which he replied, "That may be on the way to change, but of course not everyone can be Catholic. Yet, anyone who takes the concept of Catholicism seriously must at the very least be highly skeptical of nationalism." So, to me, it looks like this anti-nationalism will be the key enforcer to the one world government and religion. Eventually, everyone will have to comply to this new system of global governance by taking the mark of the beast. I wonder if this is one of the reasons Israel allows a peace agreement.

  45. thank you for posting this.the word of Enoch as a type of the pre-trib rapture is great, so great.

  46. The Jews were not taken up during the curses placed on Egypt, which is a type of the end time judgments. They were however protected. The Passover is a type of God's protection of his sheep as well. Jesus comes at the last trump, the SEVENTH trump. He that endures to the end, the same will be saved. The souls under the alter are those that were beheaded for their testimony of Christ, during the tribulation. Those standing before Christ that no man can number, the angel tells John they are the Saints that came up out of the tribulation. Christ is coming back for a bride without spot or wrinkle. That's not what he would find if he came back before the trials and tribulation!

  47. I love listening to pastor farag excecpt when he says that the so-called born agains have some kind of monopoly in heaven. Not even the Son knows the day or time , definitely not this pastor also.

  48. all those who are true followers of Jesus will see him no matter your denomination. He came to call sinners.

  49. Thank you for teaching us truth from YHWH's words written in the Holy Scriptures. Yahshua said he knows his sheep and his sheep know him and no man will take even one from him.

  50. I am really very encouraged by your updates. Sometimes I feel like a dinosaur for believing in the pre tribulation rapture. Good to hear your reinforcement. God richly bless you and your family /assembly.

  51. To be absent from the body is to present with the Lord, one would do good to look at the Hebrew wedding process of old, because Jesus goes to prepare a place for you

  52. We noticed in the late 60's and 70's that when world events got in highest gear, Israel was the important AND IGNORED News – not by "TIMING" but by Devil design to hide Israel and God's Timetable from our eyes. By use of Theatrics – cheap eye candy.

    1.) Distraction – 2.)Distortion – 3.)Destruction!

    What does the Magician do when he is pulling off his Big Tricks!??? WATCH THE OTHER HAND!

  53. Praise the Lord! Glory to the Living God. Blessed be His Holy Name!
    Thank you so much, Pastor J.D. Farag – God bless and keep you, Sir.
    Thank you!

  54. I w a s reading luke 12 and verse 36 grabbed my attention could this be referencing the wedding of the bride!remember he's talking to Jews.

  55. Jesus says: You shall not know the Day, nor the Hour.
    __
    The above scripture is fulfilled in the most true spirit via a Pre-Trib rapture scenario. Why do I say this? Because Mid-Tribbers will certainly be calculating the day- after the antichrist comes to power- to see when they think that the rapture will happen… probably along with the hour. Same for Post-Tribbers. Not gonna happen like that! Mid / Post is too deterministic.

  56. this would understand why there is almost no news coming out concerning Israel. But i love the gifting on your life.

  57. nz pm is really trying to get rid of our flag which also comes with the anthem God defend New Zealand. Tppa is already in nz now john key is adamant on getting rid of the flag, the throne of david of which the english flag comes off plus our anthem and the treaty of waitangi in one swoop.

  58. I would like to remind my brothers and sisters in Christ in the West to be patient about our Lord's return, but keep watching and praying for our Christian brothers and sisters around the world, and for our leaders. There are many people coming to faith in Christ, especially in Iran, and we need to pray for them. I heard one Iranian woman, who has converted to Christianity, say (with tears in her eyes) to ""pray for the leaders of Iran to come to Christ." Also, there are pastors and this one Iranian pastor say there are not hundreds that are coming to Christ but millions. So keep praying, watching and always be ready for our Lord and Savior.

  59. BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST , LET'S ALL PRAY FOR '' HARVEST AMERICA '' THAT WILL BE THIS SUNDAY MARCH 6, 2016 IN DALLAS , TEXAS . THAT IT WILL TRULY BE A HARVEST OF SOULS IN AMERICA FOR JESUS CHRIST . THAT THIS COUNTRY AND IT'S PEOPLE ARE READY FOR THE VERY SOON RETURN OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST . EVEN IF THEY CAN'T BE THERE PERSONALLY IN TEXAS BUT THEY CAN LISTEN AND WATCH ON THE INTERNET AND CAN PRAY TO RECEIVE JESUS AS LORD AND SAVIOR AND BE SAVED .

  60. -pretribulation-rapture is true. Let people think what they may. We will be gone.King James Bible
    For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.Acts 15:13 And after they had held their peace,

    James answered, saying, Men and brethren, hearken unto me:

    14 Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name.

    15 And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written,

    16 After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up:

  61. Amen brother, keep preparing the masses for our Lord and Savior Jesus's imminent return. Blessings to you and yours in Jesus name.

  62. Great message.  I have been 'slumbering'.  Sure, I have been witnessing and sharing the Gospel and watching what is going down in the M.E., but the inner man has been asleep but is being rewoken.

  63. JD you are right on. This whole political media clamor is designed to take the attention away of what is going on world wide. A) all this political humbug is a farce because the possible candidates are predestined by the powers that be.
    B) Think of the Green revolution times with Michael Jackson's death and ensuing endless news coverage distracting away from Iran.

  64. please check out the newest release from pope, just google " El nuevo video del papa que esta causando sensación" It's in spanish but…there is no need to understand the language!!

  65. I've been feeling like this too just everyone calls you a conspiracy theorist but it's crazy ! And it is disturbing your right everything your sayin is true

  66. God bless you JD Farag. Your Mid-East Prophecy Update is a total blessing. I am so happy with your YouTube videos. I discovered your ministry a few month ago.

  67. Thinking about Ezekiel 8 & 44:7 makes me agree that they are going to put up a multi-religious facility in a perverse version of creating a "house of prayer for all nations" Isaiah 56:6&7.

    I'm never going to be able to read John 3:29 with a straight face EVER again 😀

  69. "Chrislam" or "Christlam", the merging of Christian and Muslum, is already on the move in the larger "christain" movements.
