Mid-East Prophecy Update – February 14th, 2016

So yesterday, I usually do the prophecy
updates on Saturday; I just completed the preparation of today’s prophecy update
when all of a sudden all of my TV screens lit up with the breaking news
that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Scalia had died. This is huge; and the
implications are huge. It was reported that he died in his sleep of natural
causes while on a hunting trip at a West Texas ranch. Very interesting, very
untimely death; and as you might imagine this deals a devastating blow to
conservatism in America. I don’t know how well you’re acquainted with this
particular justice, but this was a man who stood on the word of God. I have to
confess that I was a little taken aback when shortly after the news of his death
the president of the united states had a press conference; and made it very clear
in no uncertain terms that he would nominate a replacement. That
to me represents, and this is an understatement, a worst-case scenario. I
think it’s going to be a vicious political battle in this an election year, as if it’s
not already vicious enough. I think this is something that we really need to
commit to prayer. You might remember that he was the one that had the scathing
rebuke in his dissenting opinion on the Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex
marriage. I want to share just a couple of quotes. I actually have a PDF file of the
dissent; and his dissent is just, I mean, this was a very brilliant man; and
he was really a purist in the sense of constitutional law. In his dissent he
said: “‘Today’s decree says that my ruler, and the ruler of three hundred and
twenty million Americans coast to coast, is the majority of the nine lawyers on
the Supreme Court.” Most notable were his closing comments, where he said this:
“Hubris is sometimes defined as o’erweening pride; and pride, we know, goeth before a fall.”, referring to the Proverb, “The Judiciary is the “least dangerous” of the federal branches because it has “neither Force nor Will, but merely judgment; and must ultimately depend upon the aid of the executive arm” and the States’ “even
for the efficacy of its judgments.” With each decision of ours that takes from
the People,” listen, “a question properly left to them-with each decision that is
unabashedly based not on law, but on the “reasoned judgment” of a bare majority of this Court—we move one step closer to being reminded of our impotence.” Lastly I want to share with you one
of his most famous quotes in which he said: “Have the courage to have your
wisdom regarded as stupidity. Be fools for Christ. And have the courage to
suffer the contempt of the sophisticated world.” That’s first Corinthians, ‘God has chosen the foolish things of this world to confound the wise,’ and to be courageous
when, not if, that happens;. And he was a model of that. Very courageous in his
dissent and his scathing rebuke. I was online on Twitter and other social media,
and some people arre even going as far as suggesting that it’s kind of peculiar
and suspicious. He was 79 years old, and he’s there on a hunting trip; and he
dies in his sleep of natural causes? You know I’m keenly aware that
conspiracies abound; and I think I’ve been relatively careful over the years
to not err on the side of being too conspiratorial. I hope that’s the right way
to say that. I don’t know even how to pronounce the word, so there you go. But sometimes there is I think merit to
that which is often dismissed as conspiracy. The only thing that I’ve been
able to sort of reconcile within my own heart concerning conspiracies is, God knows. I
heard one Bible teacher say one time: “Is there a grand conspiracy?” Of course there
is but God knows, and everything is going according to
God’s perfect prophetic plan. Nothing takes God by surprise. Some are sounding the alarm and pronouncing the doom of the United States of America with the death of Justice Scalia. I think
time will tell; but again I think we would do well to pray that God would be
merciful to this nation. One suggested that with his death we also have the
death of the United States of America; and that’s a pretty sobering thought.
Well let’s get to today’s prophecy update. I’m going to begin by talking about
some important news that for the most part either went underreported at best,
or unreported at worst; and of course because of the presidential election.
coverage. You know this last week I was once again reminded of how a
presidential election year can eclipse significant news, news that has prophetic
significance. And I was once again reminded of that this last week. Now
don’t get me wrong I realized, and I said as much; that this year’s election is
arguably the most important of our lifetime; and I think more so now in
light of Justice Scalia’s untimely death. But the problem I’m having is that
I think we do well to consider that so much can happen between now and then.
What do you mean? Well think about this, the election isn’t until november, and a
new president doesn’t take office until January. That’s basically for the most
part a year from now. James says, be very careful you who say
we’re going to go into such and such a city, and do business there, and make a
profit there. You should say Lord willing, because you do not know; tomorrow is not
guaranteed; our lives are a vapor. I think about how
much is given to and devoted to covering; oh my goodness they had another debate
last night; I can’t take it anymore. I don’t know what it is. I cannot take it
anymore; and I don’t know if you watched it, I did. How do I say this? I was really
grieved. I was embarrassed. It was like nothing I’d ever seen before. The
back and forth between the candidates. I was embarrassed for the process, the
process. and I was thinking to myself here we are on February the 14, yesterday
the 13th, and it’s not till, what is it January the 20th, or 21st ,or 22nd (2017). Think about this, and how much has
happened since last January. Are you kidding me? And why do we think that
nothing’s going to happen between now and next January. So much can happen. Truth be known,
as I look around it’s starting to look a lot like there maybe all-out, not war,
but World War by November. The Telegraph on Friday reported that Russia is
warning that there could be a quote, new World War starting, in of all places
Syria. It should probably come as no surprise, on the same day; the Times of
Israel published a report quoting Jordan’s King Abdullah as saying that
the two-state solution is the key to defeating the Islamic state. He even took it
a step further; this was at the Munich Security Conference last week; and stated
that fighting the Islamic state is a quote “Third World War by other means.” By the
way this was on the heels of a report that Saudi Arabia had sent troops and
fighter jets to a military base in Turkey in order to prepare for an
invasion of Syria. They’re threatening, Saudi Arabia is threatening to invade
Syria. I can’t even begin to tell you how prophetically complex this is, if I can
say it that way; complex to us but not to God. This is
exactly what we’re told what happen. And it all centers around Syria; and in Syria
which is the Nexus, or if you prefer the catalyst to Israel. Other news related that either went
unreported or underreported, was concerning Russia and Iran. Yesterday The
Jerusalem Post published an interesting analysis stating that Russia’s alliance
with Iran, and their proxy Hezbollah was a threat, keyword, to strategic Israeli interests.
And speaking of threats, I don’t know if you saw this. This from Iran on Friday.
The Jerusalem Post also reported that Iran marked the anniversary of the 1979
Islamic Revolution, when the Shah was overthrown; and they did this by holding
death to America, and death to Israel signs. And are we surprised, are we
surprised. If this weren’t bad enough Iranian students reenacted a scene from
the arrest of the american sailors by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard during this
ceremony. They had, you know, them dressed up as the american sailors, these
iranians students, put them there on the stage with the Revolutionary Guard
having guns to their heads. And it was spread all over Iran, and not just Iran,
over the entire Middle East as propaganda, The common denominator with all of these
news reports is that they speak to a prophecy from the Savior himself in
Matthew 24 concerning wars and rumors of wars; and one should note that in the
original language this idea of rumors of wars also carries with it the idea of
threats, threats of wars. Let me read Matthew 24 verses three through eight. “As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen,”. Just got done prophesying that no stone on
this magnificent temple would be standing one upon the other. “What will be the sign of your coming.” So they’re basically asked him a three fold
question; ‘When will the temple be destroyed?’ One; ‘What will be the sign of your
coming?’ Two; and ‘What will be the sign of the end of the age,’ Three. It’s very very important to delineate
between those three. When you don’t do that you end up getting all twisted up.
And Matthew 24 you’re going to end up all over the place. One of which is the
false teaching of preterism, which has the audacity to suggest that
everything’s already been fulfilled. If that’s the case, you might as well just pack up and go home. What’s the point? Where is the hope? Well that’s another topic for another
time. Preterism is in my book on the list with the likes of replacement
theology, that teaches that the church replaces Israel as God’s elect. That God is
through with the Jew. And by the way, when you buy into that lie, and that’s false
teaching; and by the way to churches are buying into that, sadly. You then have to put the church in
the seven-year tribulation. If the church replaces Israel then the church has to
go through the seven-year tribulation, because the purpose of the tribulation
is for the salvation of the Jewish nation; and if the church replaces Israel
then we’re in the tribulation, there’s no getting around it. Well three questions: When will this
happen? When will be the sign of your coming? And when will be the end of the
age? This is Jesus answer, verse four: “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,” verse 6, “of wars and rumors of wars”, or threats 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.” That’s happening. “Now there’ll be famines and earthquakes
in various places.” Have you seen the charts on earthquakes just in recent
days? Off the charts, increase in various places, in a variety of places. And verse 8
is key, and if you have a King James translation it will say that this is the
beginning of Sorrows, which back then meant what some other translations
render it as birth pains. In other words all of these Jesus says, are the
beginning of birth pains. That changes the whole complexion of the prophecy,
because Jesus likening all of these aforementioned things to a woman in
labor; the birth pains coming with greater intensity and shorter frequency.
And this is exactly what we see happening exactly as Jesus said it would
happen. Well to me the most egregious news
report that was overshadowed, and as God is my witness I had to search online to
even find out what really happened, because of the wall-to-wall presidential
coverage. Did you hear about this? An Islamic terrorist attack at a Middle
Eastern restaurant. The name of the restaurant Nazareth, Nazareth. It’s in
Ohio. It happened on Thursday. This was a horrifying Islamic terrorist attack. Of
course are not calling it that. It was carried out by, get this, a Muslim migrant;
an immigrant from Africa, who used a machete apparently to behead people. And
actually the target was the owner of the restaurant. The owner is a Christian Arab
Israeli; What? Yeah; In Nazareth, that’s where my grandmother was born, was Nazareth.
That is so cool. I can say my grandmother was born in Nazareth where Jesus was from.
Is that bad? That’s bad. Ok so. But Nazareth is really
for the most part a Christian Arab town right now; and it is and they’re are called
Arab Israelis, and they’re Christian Arabs. They are not Muslim Arabs. And so this was an
Arab Christian who was an Israeli. His name is Hany Baransi, and he was the
owner of the restaurant. And here’s the thing, no one was killed. This is what I was able to find, four people were wounded in the machete attack. Sadly one was in critical condition. But
according to one source he was sick; the Arab Christian owner was sick. He had a
migraine headache and he took Thursday night off, and wasn’t there. That’s the
Lord. Now here’s the thing, he’s a proud supporter of Israel. He even, and I saw
the video of it, you can see it online, he has an Israeli flag right there in his
restaurant. I have an Israel flag in my office. I brought it from the mainland. I
have the U.S.-flag and I have the Israel flag. We used to have it in our
church because we could. We owned the building, but there on the stage in Coeur
d’Alene Idaho. Now the reason I mention that is because Hayden Idaho, and Coeur
d’Alene Idaho, basically a stone’s throw away, is white supremacy capital of the
world. You might have heard of an incident where they had a shooting, and it made
national news, this white supremacist group, very anti Israel. In fact there was
a white supremacist to was in my church handing out white supremacist anti-Israel pro Ishmael books. Needless to say he didn’t last very long. We got rid of him
pretty quick. But that was white supremacist capital of the United States
of America; and God has a sense of humor; he calls a pro-israel Arab to plant a
church in white supremacist capital of the United States of America; and we
had the Israel flag and the US flag there on the stage in our church. And
this what he was doing; and here’s an interesting quote, and I want to read it to you. Again it’s
on the video. If you search you can find it. But he describes himself as: “the
minor minor minority of the minority.” I feel his pain and he says: “so nobody
likes me anyway. But thank God we’re in america, amen to that one”. I thought
about that statement and i wonder to myself how much longer can pro-israel
Americans say thank God we’re in America? I don’t know. Well, here’s where I’m going with this and try
to bring it in for a landing here. I’m going to make a statement, and it’s one of
those that I’ve through and prayed through, I’m just going to make this
statement, and then I’ll try to explain it a little bit why I say this. I believe that never before
in history has Bible prophecy been as important as it is today. Let me say
the same thing again. There’s never been a time in the history of mankind where
Bible prophecy has been as important as it is today. And I realize that’s a
pretty big statement but the reason I say that is because absent a biblical
understanding of eschatology, eschatology meaning end times events, we’re not going
to realize just how close it is that we really are the Lord’s return. If I don’t
believe Bible prophecy is being fulfilled then here’s what happens: the
result will be that I’ll become misled to believe that Jesus is not really coming back that
soon. I still have time. There’s no hurry. There’s no worry. Matthew 24 again this
time at the end of the chapter, which really introduces the three parables in
the 25th chapter of Matthew, but there’s this parable at the end of Matthew 24. I want to begin reading in verse 42. “Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour
your Lord is coming; but know this, that if the master of the house had known what
our the thief would come he would have watched and not allowed his house to be
broken into. Therefore”, verse 44, “you also be ready for the Son of Man is coming”, listen, “at an hour you do not expect.” Now
here’s the parable. “Who then is a faithful and wise servant whom his master made ruler over his household;
to give them food in due season. Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he
comes will find so doing. Assuredly I say to you that he will make him ruler over
all his goods. But”, verse 48, “if that evil servant says in his heart: my master
delays his coming; and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with
drunkards; the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not
looking for him, and at hour that he is not aware of, and will cut him in two, and
appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and
gnashing teeth.” This is perhaps one of the most
powerful parables of Jesus ever taught; at least as it relates to the imminence of
the rapture of the church. The point of the parable is to contrast the servant
who believes that his master could come at any time, and he wants to be ready, and
he’s watching, and faithfully serving knowing that his master could return at any
moment. And that servant, that righteous servant, is contrasted with the wicked
servant who does the polar opposite. No he’s not coming back .I got plenty of time, party on. He lives up rowdy partying life.
He drinks, he parties. Why? Because my master delays his coming. No hurry, no worry . Reminds me of that fictitious account one commentator tells
of this meeting in hell, Satan and his demons; we’ve got a problem, we’re losing
ground to the kingdom of God. We’re losing ground from the kingdom of
darkness. What are we going to do? One of the demons says, hey I know let’s launch a
campaign that there’s no heaven. To which the devil responds, no we can’t do that. The
whole creation declares of a creator, and a heaven, and a God. That’s not going to work. Another demon says, I know let’s say there’s no hell, yeah. The devil says nah, that won’t work either. Innate within man there is an understanding of the sin nature. That’s not going to work either. Satan says, here’s what we’re going to do, we’re not going to say no heaven or no hell; we’re just going to simply say, no hurry, no hurry. You’ve got time. You’ve got time. You can
just party. Enjoy life, sow your wild oats, is that how the saying goes, I don’t know. I don’t remember how that saying goes. You can just do what you want because he’s not coming. And then we’re
told that when the master does return it will catch that servant off-guard, not
the righteous servant. The righteous servant has been looking for, watching
for, waiting for, the Masters return. Enter in good and faithful servant. Well done. Good job. Good job. Let me say this, thinking Jesus delays his coming can happen; if I’m led to believe that something needs to happen before the rapture of the church can happen; a
while back I mean the comment that if there was ever a time to believe why it
is that the Rapture has to happen before the seven year tribulation it is now;
because if you, don’t you’re in trouble. If the Rapture isn’t before the seven
year tribulation then that means that my master delays is coming. That means that something has to happen
first; and he’s not coming back right away, you delay my masters coming. If I
don’t believe that the rapture is prior to the seven-year tribulation, then
instead of watching for Jesus Christ I’ll be looking for the Antichrist
because now the Antichrist has to come on the scene first. Then all these things
have to happen first. Jesus can’t come back, because these things have to happen
first; so you just delayed my master’s coming. Don’t delay my master’s
coming. I want him to come quickly. Maranatha Lord, come now. If I don’t see
that prophecy is being fulfilled, I’m going to be deceived, and I’ll have believed
that my master is delaying His coming. And what’s the result of that? I’m going to just
live my life. No hurry, no worry, He delays His coming. Let me say this last, and I
appreciate your patience. This is why we devote time every week to Bible
prophecy. This is why we do this. This is the why behind what if you will. We want to be amongst the wise
servants who are longing for our masters return, and the crown that awaits
those who long for his appearing. And here’s the other thing lastly, those that do are
found faithful. Why? Because we know that he could come at any time. This just came
to me. This will be the last last thing. On Thursday night we’re in Second Kings
two, and Elijah is caught up, a picture of the rapture, to heaven; leaving Elisha
behind; who had saw it, and as such would get the double portion of the blessing
of Elijah. And Elijah is caught up, fiery chariots, horses of fire, chariots of fire, and
the whirlwind catches him up. He and Elisha are walking together, talking
story together, and then boom he’s taken up, just like that. Just like it’s going to be for us. Now why do I
point that out? Because he knew that that was the day that he was going to be caught
up in that way. And what does he do different, knowing that this was his last
day on earth, that he’s about to go to be in the presence of the Lord; oh my
goodness Elijah you don’t have much time left, what are you going to do; it’s your last day
on earth do; you know what he does? Absolutely nothing. You know why? Because he was ready. This is the question: if you knew that
the Rapture could happen today, or you knew that this was the last day did you had on earth what would you do differently?
Oh my goodness. I would call them. I would do this. I would do such an thus. I
would call so and so. Really? Well you best be doing it now. You best be doing it
now. Elijah did absolutely nothing different because he was ready. Would to God that we would be ready not knowing when our master
returns, only knowing that he will come quickly at an hour we expect not. Please stand, we’ll pray. Lord, thank You Lord in Your grace You have enabled us to have a far reach prophecy updates, and it’s for that reason that I want to extend the invitation to anyone
who has never called upon You to be saved. Lord they pray that today, believing in their hearts confessing
with their mouths they would call upon the name of the Lord; and that today
would be the day of their salvation. And Lord for those of us who know you, are
walking with You, Lord forgive us if in any way we have believed that somehow
You’re delaying Your coming, there’s no urgency, this isn’t the last hour, we have
more time Lord forgive us for that; but also
protect us from that, we pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.

  • It was on the Lexington Ky local chnl,  they said it was a Muslim attacking 4 people at a restaurant,  they wouldn't call it a Terror Attack…

  • Father God, thank you for giving us eyes to see and ears to hear. We are aware of the time in which we live. Father, give the true remnant of believers in your Son Jesus the courage and strength to occupy until your coming. We see your coming is near, very near. Give us the Boldness to reach others with the saving grace of your Son Jesus. For you did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Amen

  • America Died last night with Justice Scalia, Obama will make sure of it…

  • pastor J. D., thank you for your courage in these perilous times.

  • You and your church devote every week to bible prophecy because you long for His appearing along with 42,786 of your subscribers! Thank you for your weekly updates. One of these days it will be your last update!

  • I love these updates. I wish the sound guy would either 1. Turn the mic down just a little or 2. Put a compressor on the mic to smooth out the peaks. Pretty much every week there is intense vocal clipping. Just trying to help my brothers and sisters with a little constructive criticism.

  • Thank you again, Brother, for your steadfast commitment in doing your weekly prophecy updates in addition to your regular teachings. You bless each and every one of us with the Truth, in love, in the precious and matchless Name of our Saviour, Yeshua Ha'Mashiach. Shalom!

  • 2 Corinthians 5:20-21 (KJV) Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

  • He was screaming Allah Akbar too

  • To all the brethren, II Thessalonians ch.2:1-3, the son of perdition revealed ."Did Jesus give us the name of the anti Christ"?you tube ppsimmonsRejoice our redemption  drawth nyePraise JesusOmega Watchman

  • Brethren consider this "The Azusa Street Mission Revival, the greatest Move of GOD in modern history, was the birth of the modern Pentecostal Movement. During that revival, it was prophesied that in 100 years another, but greater outpouring would begin and the SHEKINAH-GLORY would return: Azusa Prophecy (1909-1910)." Some say millions in America will be saved. Any thoughts on this?

  • Jesus tells us in Luke 12:51 "Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division" The world is already keenly divided in their differing beliefs.
    How many more divisions are there within religions that claim to believe in Jesus Christ?
    The pre-tribulation rapture of the church will be the single most astonishing display of the awesome power of God in human history – and will represent His ULTIMATE DIVISION of the people who posess the Spirit of TRUTH and all the rest. Maranatha!
    Praise Messiah

  • I think God had it all but there comes a time when you need to show the people hell

  • Is what JD is saying that if a christian is not looking for the rapture they will be left behind?

  • Pastor JD I did not know you lived in CDA and Hayden ID. I live there. You should come back to visit sometime.

  • I am one who immediately believed foul play was involved in Scalia's death. He was found with a pillow over his face/head. My prayer is that God Almighty will bring out ALL the truth because our very lives depend on its exposure. Thank you, again, Pastor JD for preaching the truth.

  • These are no doubt the last hours of the Church age,i believe that the Faithful in Christ and there prayers are what holding America together now,the Bible says the prayers of a righteous man avail much,that goes for countries on every part of the globe,Jesus says it will be like the days of Noah,people did not listen so God moved Noah in his family and then Judgement came,today,God is using the Church to speak to the world but people are not listening,so when God moves the Church then judgement will follow,its very possible that the Rapture is the trigger….

  • 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3King James Version (KJV)

    2 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

    2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

    3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

    So if the Bible says that the coming of The Lord shall not come until the falling away and the antichrist revealed, then why we are not going to see this???? Please explain, because the Bible cannot contradict itself. And I know we all want out of here, because sadly if we are not taken, most who call themselves christians wont be able to stand firm. But the more I read and don't let anyone press their belief in my mind, the more I see the probability of pre-trib not possible. So please, give me scripture

  • no hurry, no worry, no beef curry…

  • Thank you pastor.

  • Thank you so much for your updates! God bless you abundantly!

  • The single biggest thing that I cannot reconcile to a pre-trib rapture is 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4. There isn't any ambiguity in "that day shall not come until…" I would appreciate it if someone could point me to a resource that addresses that particularly passage. I WANT there to be a pre-trib rapture, if that is God's will, but I just can't get around "that day shall not come until…"

  • Thank you Pastor JD and God Bless you and your family.

  • I understand why we put so much attention on the rapture. However Pastor, shouldn't the fact that death at any moment being a potentiality should also cause us all of us to walk uprightly before Yeshua? People are facing a horrible existence forever if they die in their sins!

  • As in the days of Lot !


    In our lifetime we have heard what is introduced as the National Anthem 1000's of times at sporting events and other festive occasions as recently as the "super bowl". Only the first verse is sung! What follows has NEVER been heard; NEVER!, at such occasions.

    The last verse of the National Anthem of the United States of America

    " O, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand,
    Between their lov'd homes and the war's desolation;
    Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land
    Praise the Pow'r that hath made and preserv'd us a nation!
    Then conquer we must, when our cause is just,
    And this be our motto: "IN GOD IS OUR TRUST"
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
    O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

    In 1814, Francis Scott Key wrote the poem, Defense of Fort McHenry. The poem was later put to the tune of (John Stafford Smith's song) The Anacreontic Song, modified somewhat, and retitled The Star Spangled Banner.

    Congress proclaimed The Star Spangled Banner the U.S. National Anthem in 1931.

    How can God answer our prayer? How can he bless America? Psalm 33:12 is the answer: "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord."


    Jesus loves us. Rev.1:5. He came to earth born of a virgin, Mary; Isaiah 7:14; by the power of God the Holy Spirit, and lived a sinless life as Emmanuel, God, in human flesh and bones with us! Mt.1:18-25. That life He gave for us, John 10:11, and our sins He paid for by His sinless blood, Rom.5:8, on a cross of shame. 2 Cor.5:21; He was buried and rose from the dead the 3rd day.1 Cor.15:3-4. By His finished salvation Jesus delivered those who believe in Him from an eternal judgment on sins. John 5:29; Rev.20:11-15. He is our High Priest above in ministry for us, Hebrews 4:12-16; 7:25; 9:24 ***and our sins 1 John 1:5-10; 2:1-2. He is returning for His blessed Bride.John 14:1-3. He can come AT ANY MOMENT.Titus 2:12-14. Nothing can stop Him. Heb.1:13; Col.1:16 He is God The Son, Lord and Savior of all repentant believing sinners; Rom.10:9-10, we are His sheep, His Family in the faith by the grace of Almighty God. Eph.2:8-10. And He promised us He would never leave us nor forsake us; Heb.13:5. He is IN us now by the Holy Spirit; 1 Cor.6:19 and that one FINE day He would personally come for us, Rev.22:12; and that He would COMPLETE OUR SALVATION, 1 John 3:1-3; Phil 3:21 by calling us up from the heavens above the earth to be with Him as His Bride,1 Thess.4:16-17 in His Heavenly Kingdom, John 18:36 and the golden city He built for us, Rev.21:2-5, the New Jerusalem above, forever! ***John 14:1-3… AMEN!

  • The powers that be likely killed him.

  • The attack in the restaurant was in the city where Fellowship Bible Chapel is located. John Haller's weekly youtube prophecy update referenced it.

  • Thank you, Pastor JD! LOVE your update's!! <3

  • Great message, Pastor. I was so depressed, but am feeling encouraged now, having listened to your message. Thank you for addressing these issues. God bless you!

  • Excellent as always. May God bless you for your faithfulness.Looking forward till next week, unless were out of here. In which case we will talk further all be it in different surroundings.

  • Thank you, Pastor JD. Many people don't know there's mass Animal/Sea life dying around the World too.

  • Justice Scalia's death raises some serious questions about the nefarious determinations of those in power at this time. Truth no doubt will be revealed to those with discernment and who are awake and watching. Keep your eyes to the skies our King is coming very soon!

  • I watch every week. Thank you for doing these. Maranatha!!!

  • Thank you Pastor Farag.

  • Amen Pastor

  • Brother JD I look forward to your messages every week. I usually watch you on Roku.I would like to know if I could purchase the messages that you preached on the book of Joshua as that is one of my favorite books of the bible. I love every book and word of the bible but that is one of my favorites.I am a widow who is caring for my son who is 48 years old and has severe autism and it seems everytime I try to watch a whole chapter I have to stop and care for him.If I could purchase the cds then I could listen to them at night with my head phones and it wouldn't disturb him.Thank you again for your ministry as I am a prophecy watcher also and I love my Lord so very much and I pray daily that he will come soon and take us to heaven. Oh hallujah I just praise him and I can hardly wait to see him face to face in all his glory and majesty.Brother JD and all your followers please keep my son and me in your prayers as it sometimes gets hard and trying caring for my son but I took him out of a group home because of neglect and my husband was bedridden for 4 years before he went to heaven and I could not care for both of them so we placed him in the group home.He was in there for almost 6 years and things got worse and worse for my son. I am 67 years old and I have to bath, shave, brush his teeth and dress him and he is non verbal.He is doing so much better being at home and just pray that the Lord will give me the energy and strength each day to care for him as I love him so much.Also, if Jesus tares and my time is up on earth that the Lord will take my son before me or take us together but that he wont leave him here to have to go through another group home. Please tell me if I am wrong to ask the Lord for this..I know this is a prophecy site but I don't know where else to post this.Thank everyone in advance for your prayers and I love everyone.Barb

  • Justice Scalia was the last unimpeachable Old-school Christian in our government. His statements mark him as a brother we can look forward to meeting.

  • And Jesus is the Love of my life too!!!!!!

  • God's timing is perfect. I's no matter how Sclalia died, God is in charge and as I said God's timing is perfect.

  • Thank you Pastor JD for another great prophecy update , we as your online church could not thank you enough for your faithfulness in preparing the body of Christ and for the unbeliever to come to Jesus now and be saved , to escape the coming judgement and wrath of God. Church it's not much longer , we are going home very soon. I am exited everyday knowing that my Jesus is coming any day now . Thank you Lord Jesus for your promise to us that we will not be appointed to wrath BUT to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ . MARANATHA , PLEASE COME QUICKLY LORD JESUS !!!

  • Please pray for me. My name is Rich and I am an alcoholic. I'm 46 and had a heart attack last year. I accepted JESUS CHRIST as my SAVIOUR as an 8 year old boy. I was baptized at 10. I have lived my adult life as a lukewarm Christian and not for CHRIST. I know we are in the last days yet I dont change my ways. Please pray the LORD will help me to quit drinking and live for him. Pray he makes me healthy again. Pray he uses me to reach others. I believe the LORD answers prayer and hears the prayers of the righteous. I often doubt my salvation because of my lifestyle. I do not want to be spewed out. Please pray!! GOD BLESS YOU and Thank You!!

  • Why are so few pastors preaching about waiting, watching, and being ready for Christ's return?  Lord, please forgive our pastors who are not preaching on this doctrine.  We ask that You pour our Your Holy Spirit to convict these pastors so they repent and start warning the flock to warn others. Lord, please forgive us. Thank You for Franklin Graham's effort to raise prayer in each state's capitol.  Please cause Americans to turn to You, Lord, repent, and be a blessing to others.  In Jesus' name. Amen.  I am ready for the rapture!  Thank you for this message.  May God, by His grace, cause more Christians to be waiting, watching and ready!

  • Pastor, I do not believe in replacement theology, I am not a pretorist, I am not foolishly wasting time as though Jesus' coming is delayed, and I see how prophecy is being fulfilled. I am watching! But I still see that there is a possibility and even a probability that Jesus will come after the revelation of the anti-christ; after the tribulation has begun. Can you say beyond the shadow of a doubt that we will be raptured before these things? Believe me, I hope that it does! But what if we are waiting for Jesus to come first and we end up getting the anti-christ? I see danger in writing off this as a possibility. Please elaborate!!

  • What took me aback was the fact that the POTUS did not even give condolences to the family or friends of this man.. but announced his right to assign a replacement a.s.a.p. No respect for this man was very clear. God bless you brother/pastor Farag…I am not an American.. but I know the sadness felt by many Americans who were so grateful for a Godly man being in such a position, an important one… we felt the same loss, however not as final by losing our Prime Minister Stephen Harper.. and attaining a muslim one. Indeed God does know and allows these things ultimately for His purpose and implementation of His ultimate plan for this earth. Come soon Lord Jesus – Maranatha

  • The political spirit is super strong all over the world now.

  • Pastor, will you please address this news… NETANYAHU: WE WILL SURROUND ISRAEL WITH WALLS 'TO DEFEND AGAINST WILD BEASTS' ,in light of Ezekiel 38 concerning "unwalled villages"? If that scripture is a literal interpretation, then does it mean an attack is imminent? (before the walls go up?) I would so love to hear you speak on this! Thanks Pastor! Does anyone else have thoughts on this?

  • Thank you for the message, very informative!

  • Pastor JD, I have followed your phrophecy updates faithfully for two years. A few weeks ago, and again today, you sited Matthew 24 in reference to the Rapture. My understanding of the Olivet Discourse is that Jesus is speaking of what will immediately occur before He returns to set up His Kingdom. I know that the Rapture and the Second Coming ae two separate events. Can you explain to me how these verses directly apply to the Rapture? Thank you for speaking on a subject most pastors don't want to discuss. Maranatha!

  • Nice shirt JD ! Keep up the good work, I look forward to hearing your message each week.

  • Watching from Meridian Idaho. Thank you for staying the course Pastor!

  • I thank the Lord our God, that it is only by His grace that I live today, and every day. He saved me and as been the Lord of my life every single day of my life. No i am not perfect, but I strive to do my best not to be as the world is, but as the Holy Spirit leads me. It is by the blood of the Lamb, and His grace that I am saved, and not of myself, that I should, or would boast.I think about this every day , and night of my life. Yes, I am anxiously waiting for our Lord and Savior to call us home, but, I strive to be busy in all I do , to do my Lords work. I will be ready, even though I know not the day and hour, because I love the Lord our God, so , very, very much. Jesus loves us , yes I know, because the Bible and His Holy Spirit tells us so. This is how I live my life. Shalom my brothers, and sisters, please do not despair!

  • Another Holy Spirit inspired update by our favorite prophecy pastor! Wake up world!!!

  • Reality has become insanity and if you think you know reality your insane. The Satanic deception will consume you if you don't arm yourself with the Bible and truth that Jesus is our Lord and Saviour. The Western world is ignorant because they have taken Gods blessings for granted and are willing to accept Islam for the sake of 'peace' which is a religion of unspeakable evil.

  • Who would you recommend explaining Pre-trib rapture (by website, book, or youtube)? I want set it in my spirit without a doubt what I believe on this. Would also like to know if there is anything outlining all the prophecy that has already been fulfilled. I don't want to do a Google search, but would rather have recommendations from other believers and the discernment of the Holy Spirit. Thanks and be blessed!

  • I do not believe he died Natral! The corner requested a autopsy but his Wife and other said No. The corner stated on ABC news (if there is suspicious reasons that is why we request it).

  • You can say your grandmother was born in Nazareth 🙂 …. I do so love you my brother, love your humour too! thanks for this info again, I so look forward to it each Monday…. I listen closely! I'm ready… and God bless you and your family my brother!


  • God's judgment isn't just for this country, it is on the world to all mankind who are left behind. The delusion God has sent to those who have no love for the truth is why some of mankind have been given the delusion. Those of us who see the evil things happening now, we love the truth and therefore see the evil. We will be saved from the wrath of God.

  • Thank you Pastor J.D. for this prophecy update. I have to admit that I'm longing for HIS return to gather us home. It grieves me to know of and see so many suffering in this world. I know all HIS plans are perfect. I know HIS will is perfect. I know all things work to the good. But, I still pray it's soon so the suffering of others will end. Halleli-Yah.

  • wow thank you for the word you are a blessing

  • Thanks, Pastor JD.  I always get a lot out of your messages, but this was very special to me.  I am with you, Brother…waiting for Jesus to come, prepared and yet so anxious.
    Blessings to all there…

  • Many have been commenting about Matthew 24 not applying to the church as Pastor JD is teaching. Matthew 24 is not about the church, (tried putting in a link and can't) Go to Grace thru Faith and put Matthew 24 in the search box. It is a clear teaching that it is very good at explaining that this chapter is for Israel and the Jewish people. Teaching it otherwise creates confusion.

  • I am watching for Jesus Christ, the Messiah – not the Anti-Christ. Soon and very soon – Blessings – Sherry

  • God will continually strengthen you as God is using you to prepare the hearts of the Saints for the second coming of our Lord. Come quickly, Master Jesus Christ.

  • Be right for the flight, so we can all be airborne and celebrating, at the great dinner supper of the Lamb.

  • Yep – Columbus, OH – the restaurant is named NAZARETH for Mediterranean food.  They never mentioned the owner's background; just that it was "a localized terrorist" attacking the restaurant.  Two guys formed a "wall" and one of the guys fought him off with a chair……the Muslim guy stopped and just walked away as if nothing happened.  It was like it was demonic!  The police have labeled it a hate crime.  We need people like JD to help with these headlines.  Secular news isn't giving us the full story.  Even news links online are lacking.  We need discernment.

  • http://worldrevivalnetwork.blogspot.com/2013/07/more-than-just-timelines.html

  • I would like to respectfully disagree with you pastor (I too am a pastor 'Down Under') – only in this – that there was a time 'as important' as now to know Bible Prophesy, and that was 2000 years ago when our Lord held Israel accountable to know the time of His arrival – and because they did not – for 2000 years they have lived in blindness rather than living in The Kingdom. It is a warning to us – to be prayerfully and actively watchful – for which I am grateful to you for your program.

  • It felt like the Enoch pronouncement, "His Death Brings It."
    To me.
    When Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead of Questionable Causes "with a pillow on his head" but "bedclothes not wrinkled".
    I have no clue what I think that means.
    I know what Enough meant in the short term as Methuselah died after the Ark was finished, before God told Noah to get aboard, and before the rains started.
    But that phrase came strongly to my mind when I heard of Justice Scalia's death.

  • 2 Chronicles 7:13-15

  • We live roughly an hour away from Columbus Ohio. The tentacles of evil Islam are spreading everywhere.
    Come quickly, Lord!

  • In speaking of Israel, JD wondered how long those who support Israel can continue to do so in America. To me this illustrates the divide between Godly and ungodly that seems to be growing by the day. There is a hatred against Israel that is becoming more and more pronounced. It used to be that the world looked on Israel favourably, even those who weren't believers, but NOW the campaign to demonize Israel has ramped up to the point where even students and pop culture are participating in it. Society is to the point where Israel is the evil one, the Palestinian terrorists attacking Israelis every day are just misunderstood people who are fighting for their 'homeland', and everyone is sick of the 'burdensome stone' of Jerusalem and the whole peace process. It seems to me that when we are finally taken out of the way that the world will be so divided anyway that the slide into complete and utter darkness will be tragically easy as evil abounds freely.

  • Is it wrong to become a Christian because you have a fear of hell? I used to feel so apathetic about the concept of hell, yet now it terrifies me. I have tried to pray, but I never feel anything, or get any answers.

  • i'm uncomfortable and feel challenged to change, but have that inner knowing that it's not an impossible task… great time listening to the word!

  • Thank you pastor J D!

  • Ultimately the antichrist will reveal himself when the rapture takes place. Because when Christ comes in a cloud to save his people from the great tribulation, last 3 1/2 years (WW3) there goes the salt of the earth. But Christ will return on a cloud before the whole world and reap the final harvest the wheat (new believers that endured WW3) and the grapes (evil doers).

  • A very BIG amen Pastor… Cant wait to celebrate with you in Heaven!!

  • Well except for not knowing that Israel and Jew are not synonymous, this is a good lecture… and Jew is a Talmudic religion and Israel is both a Nation and the People from Jacob Isaac, who were divinely renamed "Christian" in the book of Acts. Professor Truth

  • shady buisness ,and our president seemed tore up over his death.

  • Scalia once said that the destruction of the American constitution is just one Supreme Court Justice away. Well maybe here we go!

  • the machete attack was in my city. Columbus Ohio. They reopened and the public turned out to support the owner. I watch your updates all the time thank you.

  • Always look forward to this brother's update and am looking forward to saying :thankyou; when we are up in Heaven!

  • Our nation is at a crossroads. Heavenly Father, may you help your servants to speak your Word with great boldness and to live lives of integrity for your honor and glory. Amen.

  • @1900… At the time of this attack I was about 200 yards away, in a nursing home next door

  • What a great brother in Christ! You can tell he has the love of Jesus in his heart.

  • I live in Ohio and had to find out about a terrorist attack in my own state through the pastor in Hawaii??
    God bless you all =)

  • If judgement hits America and all the children of Jehovah are praying, he will make a hedge of fire around them to protect them. Don't worry about what is happening to your country just focus on Jesus and do what he has asked you to do i.e. his kingdom work

  • Birth pains are increasing rapidly. Already America has more rains and crazy weather more than ever before

  • pastor…are you in honolulu? I just moved here and i know you are in Hawaii. I have been listening to you for a while now. Every time I watch one of your services…it speaks right to my heart. This is on purpose from the Lord. If your church is in Honolulu…my family and I would like to attend.

  • Thanks Pastor, for keeping us informed on events the media gives little coverage to but is significant to prophecy..

  • So your telling me that the Tribulation is for the Jew only?

  • Something to always remember.. even though we here in America are steeped in the political system,, treating elections as "normal",, and even preachers and Christian leaders telling us we are obligation to vote,, it is still a system of man…. maybe this offends and some would say we should vote or take part,, I see God's Word as a template for something very opposite.. Jesus said: ""my kingdom is not of this world"…."we are pilgrims and strangers in a strange land",, "love not the world or the things that are of this world" …… there are many references in the Word of God that separate true believers from the systems of this world….which will eventually lead to the evil beast system which we will have no part of— am I unpatriotic??? I think I am loyal to a kingdom that has no earthly flag—

  • Another Obama Murder!!!

  • Yes, pray, God is in control of things completely. God bless.

  • Poor Syria is being killed. All these nations fighting against this one country to get their oil and riches over there. It is in the Bible.

  • You said it, JD! This is what I think is going to happen. Knowing the narcissist that Obama is, he will wait till after the 'election' because I believe he is curious as hell to see who is 'chosen' to be the next president. Then, he will create his crisis and declare martial law, cancelling out the election making him president permanently.

  • I wonder who invited justice Scalia hunting?

  • Thank you xo
