Bible Prophecy Update – April 28th, 2019


alright time for our prophecy update I want to talk with you today about what I
would argue is the undeniable fact that Christians are the most persecuted
people of faith in the world and it’s getting worse doubtless you know about the massacre of
Christians in Sri Lanka that took place on Resurrection Sunday last week the
last report the death toll had reached 253 Christians plus many more that were
injured even yesterday as I was preparing the prophecy update for today
the breaking news was this Poway California synagogue shooting where I
guess a 19 year old went in and killed one young lady and then I guess there
were others who were injured what I’m hoping to do today is address this
matter from a prophetic perspective then perhaps more importantly talk about our
response as Christians I’ll begin with this CBN News article about how in spite
of the warnings emerging of new Sri Lanka Church attacks that global
Christian persecution is still obscured here’s some of what it had to say last
Sunday’s bombings were one of the world’s worst terrorist attacks but
there’s still a sense that Americans don’t grasp that Christians around the
world are so targeted in fact the New York time
ran an opinion piece this week asking this question listen to this are
Christians privileged or persecuted Doug Bandow an analyst at the CATO Institute
answers that question writing Christianity’s dominant role in American
culture has obscured the fact that it is the most persecuted faith globally I
want you to hang on to that we’re going to talk a little bit more about that but
certainly this is true for us living here in Hawaii and I’ll explain why I
say that we’re sort of insulated and isolated and it does seem that we’re so
far removed too far removed from what is happening to our brothers and sisters in
Christ in other places around the world particularly in the Middle East where
I’m from see my Arab brothers and sisters are being martyred for their
faith in Jesus Christ by the multitudes they go to any of these countries in
fact the statistics bear this out and I’m certain you’ve heard these
statistics about the persecution of Christians being more in the last
several years than it has been since the early church 2,000 years ago combined
more Christians have died for their faith in recent years than in the
history of the Church of Jesus Christ try to get your mind around that yet
here we are in America certainly here in Hawaii I don’t say this to beat up on
anybody I mean it just is what it is let’s be honest let’s face it we have it
pretty good don’t we the freedoms that we have even this church this
beautiful church building and property that we have that God gave us by His
grace they said it’s a miracle what a blessing
it is a blessing that is foreign to our brothers and sisters in Christ in other
parts of the world you know they they meet they have to limit the numbers
because otherwise they’ll draw attention to themselves they’ll meet underground
in obscurity when they get together and when they worship you have to turn up
the AC in order to drown out the lifting up of their voices they have to come at
different times so that’s not all at the same time and they have to come together
again so there’s no attention drawn to them they have to meet in secret to
worship the Lord because if they are found out that’s it they’re dead they’re
beheaded they’re killed for their faith in Christ you know I’ve said this before
and I I guess now is as good of a time as any to say it again and I don’t
mean to say this to create any kind of a condemnation on us I include myself in
that but where you find the Church of Jesus Christ growing and thriving and on
fire for Jesus Christ today are in those areas where the church is persecuted the
most you want to grow the church persecute the church we have it so good
we have it too good and it is true I believe that the fact that Christians
are the most persecuted people in all of the world is obscured here in America
and certainly here in Hawaii Fox News to their credit
had a segment on the rise of anti Christianity around the world noting the
number of recent attacks just in Africa these are attacks on Christians I don’t
want to take the time I don’t have the time to go into this today but I think
I’d be grossly remiss were I not to point out that the attacks against Jews
and Christians come chiefly from Islam this because the Quran commands commands
it’s a command to the Muslim to strike terror in and kill the people of the
book you know who that is oh this book the Bible people of the
book are the Old Covenant Israel the New Covenant the Christian Jews and
Christians I suppose it should come as no surprise according to this Arutz
Sheva report that the Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the Sri Lanka
bombings notice I am not referring to them as ISIS the acronym nor will I ever
refer to them as ISIL and here’s why first of all when you use an acronym you
gut out the true meaning of what it is that you’re saying when I say ISIS you
just kind of say okay ISIS wait wait wait no this is the Islamic State of
Iraq and the greater Syria the S Islamic State of Iraq and the
greater Syria you know why and I’m going to you’ll forgive me
you have to because but you might remember former President Barack Obama
emphatically stated that the Islamic state was neither Islamic nor a state do
you remember that and whenever he would refer to ISIS or the Islamic state he
would always say without exception ISIL L L
what’s the L wait I thought it was ISIS no no no the Islamic State of Iraq and the
Levant why is that important because the Levant to the Muslim is verbatim the
borders of the promised land given to Israel that includes Syria and Iraq
Lebanon in part my birthplace Jordan Egypt and the whole area that they refer
to as the Levant is Israel the promised land you see how subtle that is every
time and I used to for all those years for those of you who have been with us
during that time you you understand it was just horrific and I had such a hard
time because I know the truth and so do you and this was a very anti-semitic
subtlety of saying that there’s no Israel it belongs to and it’s the Levant
it belongs to Islam well on Monday the Washington Times this is a
really good read and I would really encourage you to read it in its entirety
it’s a very interesting well-written article about Obama and Hillary Clinton
and their anti-Christian response to the Islamic massacre of Christians in Sri
Lanka quoting The Times Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton avoided using the word
Christians while commenting on Twitter about the horrific attacks on yes let’s
call it what it is please Christians on Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka that left
hundreds dead and injured instead still quoting the ex pres and
former Secretary of State called the victims Easter worshippers that’s not
just strange and unnatural it’s a political calculation here’s what Obama
tweeted the attacks on tourists and Easter worshipers in Sri Lanka
are an attack on humanity on a day devoted to love redemption and renewal
ah so nice doesn’t it we pray for the victims and stand with the people of Sri
Lanka and Clinton wrote this on this holy weekend for many faiths wait wait
wait wait what Islam does not celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ Buddhists
don’t celebrate the resurrection of Jesus this is many faiths I’m sorry there’s only one faith there’s
only one way there’s only one way to the Father Jesus said I am the way the truth
and the life and there’s no way to the Father except through Me
Muhammad did not die for me Buddha did not die for me in fact I
could go visit where they’re buried they’re still there
I’m sorry I’m yelling I just hit a so again quoting on this holy weekend for many
faiths I’m sorry we must stand united against hatred and violence I’m praying
for everyone affected by today’s horrific attacks on Easter worshippers
and travelers oh we were just tourists still quoting my gosh people it was an
attack on Christians it was an attack on Christianity calling them Easter
worshippers is a political ploy designed to tamp down realities of radical
Islamic terror targeting of Christians and Christianity and by the way these
are true Muslims they are being obedient to what the Quran commands them to do okay I’m going to turn a corner and talk
about something that I just violated if you’re anything like me and I would
suspect that many of you are you’re just as prone as I am to react with anger I
mean I always try to couch my anger in terms of righteous anger it’s a righteous
anger yeah oftentimes we react with anger because
we’re full of fear think about that the anger is the reaction because we’re
fearful and fear can also lead to discouragement which oftentimes can give
way to despair if this is an apt description for how you feel when I
share what I just shared or when you watch the news like I do every week and
see on your newsfeed things as incredible as this well I have some good
news and I need to practice what I preach when I need to say this but we
need not react in any of these ways in these the last days I don’t see anywhere
in the scriptures where the Apostle Paul or the early church got angry at Rome
protested Rome I mean they were under Caesar I mean we’re talking about a man
that was so demon-possessed that he would cross dress and ride around in
his chariots with his homosexual lovers and he would burn alive Christians
by pouring this hot tar and wax on them and lighting them on fire and ride
around the chariots screaming where are you now oh light of the world I’m
speaking to myself what was their response
these persecuted Christians in that day I want to suggest three and the Lord has
ministered these truths to me and encouraged my heart in a powerful way
He’s kept me in check I have to again confess that when I find myself just
getting angry and how could you say such a thing I’m reminded of these three
truths the first is to be patient the second be encouraged and the third and
this is the one I want to spend just a little bit of time on be Godly let’s
start with be patient James chapter 5 beginning in verse 7 therefore be
patient brethren until the coming of the Lord
see how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth waiting
patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain you also be
patient establish your hearts for the coming of the Lord is at hand do not
grumble against one another brethren lest you be condemned that’s interesting
isn’t it that it almost seems out of place he’s talking about being patient
until the Lord comes back and he says by the way
stop grumbling against each other stop backbiting and gossiping about each
other whoa you know why well he’s going to answer that
behold the judge is standing at the door my brethren take the prophets who spoke
in the name of the Lord as an example of suffering and patience indeed we count
them blessed who endure you have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the
end intended by the Lord that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful if
you’re here this morning or watching online and you’re really struggling and
going through a very difficult and painful trial I want to encourage you
with those who went before us like Job in particular who said though He slay me
yet will I trust Him he said to his wife who told him to curse God and get it
over with and die he said to her shall we only accept good from the Lord and
not bad yeah but you say pastor I don’t know how much longer I can hang on I’m
hanging on by a thread I just don’t know how I’m going to get through this or
endure this I want to encourage you because the endurance is found in the
very trial that you’re going through I wish there was another way but you need
that strength and that endurance to get through what you’re going through guess
what you get that endurance and strength by going through what you’re going
through I know that sounds kind of simple but there’s no other way
the only way for you and I to get through those painful trials in our life
and endure them to the end is by going through
them and keyword through you know my favorite words in all of the Bible are
it came to pass didn’t come to stay it came to pass you’re going to get through it
oh but I wanted God to get me out of it no here’s the thing if He gets you
out of it you’re going to have to retake the test oh I hated retaking tests I
took a lot of tests a lot of times when I was in school I want to pass the test
I want to get through it and endure it because the endurance that I need to get
through what I go through is found in the very thing that I’m going through
you’re going to get through it you’re going to make it I know it doesn’t seem like it
I know the situation seems perilous and hopeless and you’re helpless but God
remember that from Philippians where did where do you place your B U T secondly
be encouraged First Thessalonians chapter 4 verses 14 through 18 my
favorite passage in all the Bible I know I say that about every one of them but
this one in particular the Apostle Paul writing to the church who thought they
missed the rapture they were so discouraged even in despair because of
their loved ones who died in Christ they thought what’s going to happen to them
so Paul says to them for we believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we
believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him
speaking of death according to the Lord’s word we tell you that we who are
still alive who are left until the coming of the Lord will certainly not
precede those who have fallen asleep in death
for the Lord Himself will come down from heaven with a loud command with the
voice of the Archangel and with the trumpet call of God and the dead in
Christ will rise first after that we who are still alive and are left will be two
words caught up in the original language of the Greek new testament it’s the
Greek word harpazo in the Latin it’s the word rapturous which
transliterated is where we get the English word rapture so the next time
somebody says the word rapture isn’t even in the Bible I’m sorry I need to
stop doing that I’m sorry Lord you need to buy a Latin Bible and then just show
them the Latin word because it’s in there in the English it takes two words
to translate and it still doesn’t really capture it no pun intended but it
carries with it the idea of snatched away caught up with great force that’s
what it means yeah I like the Latin word better than the Greek word you know
harpazo sounds kind of slow her pa zo whereas rapture oh rapture so much faster
I’ll stick with rapture over harpazo just a personal preference but I
digress we who are still alive and are left will
be caught up raptured up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in
the air and so we will be with the Lord for ever therefore encourage one another with
these words I’ve heard it said this way when you have this to look forward to it
makes whatever you’re going through easier to get through be encouraged that
Trump is going to sound and when it does oh oh oh a ha ha no really
for real no more rent no more traffic no more cockroaches no that that alone that
alone I’m telling you right there not to mention no more sorrow no more pain no
more suffering no more death no more death lastly bear with me we’re almost done
be Godly this is the example of the early church this was the response of
the early church in the face of unthinkable evil evil that by any
stretch of the imagination would be incomparable to that which we encounter
today even in Hawaii especially in Hawaii listen to what Peter says in his
second epistle chapter 3 verses 10 through 12 but the day of the Lord will
come like a thief the heavens will disappear with a roar the elements will
be destroyed by fire and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare
now he asks this question since everything will be destroyed in this way what kind
of people ought you to be another translation renders that how then ought
you to live your life in light of this knowing this he answers it you ought to
live holy and Godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed it’s
coming that day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire and
the elements will melt in the heat how do I say this without please don’t
misunderstand my heart when I say this we need to let our light shine in a
world that is getting darker by the minute John says that the one who has
this hope purifies themselves in other words they get serious about the things
of God this to me is the number one impact for lack of a better way of
saying it that teaching and studying Bible prophecy has on the life of a
Christian it has this effect of waking us up to where we get serious about the
things of God and the return of the Lord stop playing around if I could say it
that way we get serious we stop playing church we stop playing around with the
things of this world which are passing away and we get serious about the soon
return of the Lord you know the people that I find that have the most impact in
furthering the kingdom of God are those that are watching for the Lord’s return
at any minute it creates an urgency doesn’t it here’s
the bottom line Christ’s return for His bride is at the
door and it’s our only hope not just our Blessed hope as Peter says it’s our only
hope for salvation and redemption and this is why we do these weekly prophecy
updates and it’s also why we do these ABCs of salvation and if you’ll just
give me a couple of more minutes I know I’m preaching to the choir and many here
today are already saved but you never know when the Lord might bring somebody
into your path for you to share the simple childlike way to be saved with
the ABCs of salvation see the ABCs of salvation really is the bad news first
and then after we understand the bad news we are presented with the good news
of salvation found in the person of Jesus Christ that’s what the ABCs are
the A is for admit or acknowledge that you’re a sinner that you are in need of
the Savior this is Romans 3:10 it says there is no one righteous not even one
no one is good we might be good but we can never be good enough and Romans 3:23
tells us why all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God Romans 6:23 is
this again packaging of the bad news first with the good news the bad news is
is that the wages of sin is death it’s the death penalty that’s the bad news
now here’s the good news but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our
Lord Ephesians 2:8 & 9 says you are saved I am saved by grace through faith
it is not of works it’s the gift of God lest any of us should ever try to boast
as if we somehow had earned it the only thing we’ve earned is death
eternally separated from God for all eternity but the gift of God is eternal
life in Christ Jesus our Lord the B is for believe in your heart that Jesus
Christ is Lord and that God raised Him from the dead this is Romans 10:9 and 10
it says if you believe in your heart that God
raised Jesus from the dead you will be saved the verdict’s in the jury’s not out
it’s not you might you could you should know you will will be saved and then
lastly and then it’s for call upon the name of the Lord or as Romans 10:9 and
10 also says if you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your
heart that God raised Him from the dead you will and here it is again you will be
saved and we’re going to see it one more time in Romans 10:13
all all I’m and all are you an all all means I know this is deeply profound all all who call upon the name of the Lord
will be saved it’s that simple you might think it’s too simple I don’t I am so
glad that 37 years ago it was this simple because if it wasn’t this simple
I don’t know if I would have been saved it had to be simple for me
it had to be childlike simple Jesus said unless you become like a little child
you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven I implore you if you’re here today or
watching online and you’ve never called upon the name of the Lord I want to say
with all due respect and I do need to ask this question and maybe for somebody
here today when you see what’s happening in the world and how the world is waxing
more and more evil seemingly with each passing hour this is a sincere question
why would anyone want to delay making the most important decision of your life
for eternal life you know tomorrow’s not promised just give me one more minute
here maybe this is for somebody here today are watching online tomorrow’s not
promised you have no idea life is but a vapor James says you know
how many people I’ve shared this in the past I’ll just maybe this is again for
somebody here I had the occasion many years ago when I was a very young
believer I volunteered at a boy’s home and I shared the gospel with this young
just this so he was so cool this african-american
teenager 14 years of age I think 13 or 14 and just the Lord really impressed
it heavily upon my heart that I was to share the gospel with him and invite him
to make the most important decision of his life and I did and I asked him I
said if you were to die today do you know for sure that you would go to
heaven he said no I don’t I said do you want to be sure you can you can know
John says that you have eternal life and he said yes and he prayed with me that
day and was born again by the Spirit of God I could not have known nor could he
have known that that week they would take a field trip as a boy’s home and he
would go swimming and he would drown you never know please don’t write me off or
blow me off as being morbid I’m speaking the truth to you as God is my witness we
don’t know this is to be taken seriously do not delay this is the most important
decision you will ever make in your life please stand let’s pray thank you for
your patience by the way Father in heaven thank You Lord I pray for anyone who has never
called upon You believing in their heart confessing with their mouths
acknowledging their sin before You their need for You that today would be the day
of their salvation and Lord for those of us who have been walking with You some
for many years I pray that there would be a strengthening and an encouraging of
our hearts as we patiently like that farmer wait for Your return Lord thank
Tou that Tou are at the door Maranatha come quickly in Jesus’ name Amen

    My fellow sister's and brother's in Christ. Please, DO NOT let the Devil to DISCOURAGE us. The Devil tries to work over time by taking our joy. We ALL must REBUKE the Devil in the name of Jesus!! Our Lord and Saviour will be arriving much sooner than we think. HALLELUHA!!

  • Tom David says:

    Thanks so much Pastor J.D. for your heartfelt passion to warn people outside of Christ about the truth and then to give a simple explanation on how we must be saved. I pray for the Lord's protection and His guidance for you and your family and your church. Baruch Hashem Adonai ! Blessed be the Name of the Lord !

  • Bluesparkles Patriot says:

    Thank you JD!! I’ve had a very trying weekend, your words of God has uplifted me today. Just this past weekend, I could have been dead.

  • Cathy Kaplan says:

    I'm sorry pastor. I truly love you and your teachings. I attend a Calvery church and appreciate the the way they teach, straight out of the bible. However it is difficult for me to even say the word easter. A pagen goddes. We go to church and say Happy easter to one another then go home and open our easter candy, do our easter egg hunts and think were covered. I feel the same way about Christmas. It's about time to teach where these pagan holidays actually came from. It's time to put away our candy, our baskets, and just worship God for his RESURRECTION and stop saying the word easter concerning the day.

  • larry craddock says:

    JUDE verse 14: Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, Prophesied about these men also, saying '' Behold the Lord comes with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgement on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him"

  • J.P. Walker says:

    You are blessing people around the world! (That includes this Canadian)
    Still watching and waiting on our blessed hope, God be praised and may He bless you and your family.
    Maranatha!

  • Charlotte Kearn says:

    Ive said it before pastor JD, yell and scream your head off if you want. Im from a family of yellers, really loud ones. We are passionate, so are you, perfectly fine with me. We love you!!!! Yes, it is getting more evil, minute by minute, not hour by hour or day by day. I listen to the news, i read behind the news, then I'm done and put on some stupid tv show that makes me forget for a half hour. And i totally agree with you that the previous president and secretary of state are unbelievable in what they say. You didn't use the word evil, but i will. It is so hard living in this world but we have to because what choice do we have until we die or get raptured. I vote for rapture because then everyone gets to go at once. Hallelujah

  • Wendy McCreery says:

    Thank you, God bless you!

  • Alice Rovney says:

    lol JD. You're awesome.

  • DV Phil says:

    The attacks were a sacrifice, for 1 other religion does have this weekend scheduled on their calendar. Satanist. The 19th is reserved for an adult male human sacrifice. Their plan was to use Notre Dame, but the fire happen on the 15th throwing them into a back up plan.
    Sounds completely crazy, right.
    Do Your Own Research, look into the darkest of all religions. they do publish a calendar, that is ignored by most people responsible for stopping crimes, many participate.in the events

  • dell says:

    And like the Lord said All those whose name was not written in the book of life worshipped the Beast. That's why we do not worship the god of Islam.

  • Pam Bowdon says:

    I feel the pain and compassion in Pastor JD’s voice. I love to listen to him.

  • Stephen Zaffarano says:

    READ READ READ READ READ READ READ YOUR BIBLES!!! The Word of God is ALIVE and it is your defense, your covering, and contains all the wisdom needed to live a Godly sanctified life. The truth is there and the Holy Spirit will help you understand! But we MUST stay in the WORD to keep the world/enemy from deceiving or dividing us. God bless you all, brothers and sisters. Praying for you all!!

  • Susanna Jacobi says:

    I am really concerned about your blood pressure, pastor! Just for the possibility that the Rapture is not in the next week – take care of your health….be blessed and thank you so much for your constant work!!

  • Paul Ripley says:

    OK, so this may not be accepted by some, but not all non-muslims ( in this case Roman Catholics) are born again believers. Yes, there are many Christians who have and are still being persecuted.
    Is it grievous that there is hatred towards all outside of Islam, so we pray for our enemy.

  • Tammy Driver says:

    Please come soon Lord Jesus!

  • Geoffrey Rudd says:

    Love your work.

  • Cat Sat says:

    Some time a thread must be burnt in order not to run when your faith is in the beginning and end stand for the Lord Jesus for that is truth in all things for you will unravel if you fear the fire

  • Cherri Blackmore says:

    God bless you Pastor Farag for these great teachings and for mentioning the coming Rapture. There are no pastors in my area who will speak of the last days.

  • Darrell Moore says:

    The Great Deception, if you'll read all of this, I'd like to explain. References cited at the end.

    First, The Heavenly Father's Name is YaH, not "God" (YHVH – YH "Hand Breath" forms the Creators Name YaH and VH (Nail Breath), YaH's Sacrifice, the Nail through YaH's Hand, for those who call YaH Savior, His Breath brings forth life. That's what YaH's Name means… LIFE

    So why does our Bible not say what the original Hebrew says?

    The Deception and its been their OATH since Isaiah 14, where Azaz'el, LUCIFER, told YaH, "the world would follow him, bow to him instead of YaH", which is exactly what this world is doing.

    When the Greek King Ptolemy II brought the Jewish Scribes from Jerusalem to translate the Paleo Hebrew into Koine Greek (Septuagint), as the Greeks could not read Hebrew, under penalty of death, both to them and all of their families, they were ordered to change YaH's Name to the Greek god Zeus.

    Jeremiah 8:8
    How do you say, We are wise, and the law of YaH is with us? But, behold, the false pen of the scribes has worked falsely.

    I understand "christianity", however, what the Hebrew, the ORIGINAL, says is not what is in your Bible.

    Example. The English Bible, Isaiah 9:6 says "unto us a child is born", yet that's not what the Hebrew says.

    From the Dead Sea Scrolls

    Isaiah 9:6

    כִּי־יֶלֶד יֻלַּד־לָנוּ בֵּן נִתַּן־לָנוּ וַתְּהִי הַמִּשְׂרָה עַל־שִׁכְמוֹ וַיִּקְרָא שְׁמוֹ פֶּלֶא יוֹעֵץ אֵל גִּבּוֹר אֲבִיעַד שַׂר־שָׁלוֹם

    Which reads:

    For unto us a lad is given, the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty El, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. (El – Hebrew means "The Mighty One")

    The EVERLASTING FATHER, not the "SON". YaH is the Everlasting Father, YaH is El (The Mighty One), not this "jesus".

    So how does YaH arrive, if not through childbirth?

    YaH arrives via the Tent of Meeting, same way YaH arrived to Moses and spoke to him FACE to FACE as one speaks to a friend (Exodus 33:7-11), NOT childbirth…

    YaH does not have a child with a human woman.

    In Genesis 6, the be'ne Elohim, the Fallen, were having children with human women and for that evil, YaH cast them out of Heaven and sent the flood killing everyone but Noah and his family (7 people), yet the English Bible and these churches teach that YaH turned right around and did the very same thing with a human woman named Mary and that is BLASPHEMY.

    Isaiah 45:10
    Woe to the one who says to a father, 'What have you begotten?' or to a mother, 'What have you brought to birth?'

    YaH does NOT have offspring, YaH has Creation as YaH Created Adam from the dust of the Earth and Eve from Adam's rib…

    John 14:9
    "Don't you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, 'Show us the Father'?

    FATHER = YaH

    John 10:33
    "We are not stoning you for any good work," they replied, "but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God."

    God = YaH

    Acts 14
    15 … turn away from these worthless things to the living God, who made the heavens and the earth and the sea and everything in them

    "who made the heavens and the earth and the sea and everything in them"?

    YaH made the heavens and the earth and the sea and everything in them, NOT this jesus/yeshua NO ONE BUT YaH!!!

    It's been YaH all along. That's the Parable, that's the Riddle.

    HalleluYaH is Hebrew, it means "Praise YaH", not Hallelujesus or HalleluYeShua and I pray that makes sense.

    Oh you preach so well pastor. Truth, laughter,knowledge wish I was in your church, oh well got you here. I loved that part about testing. Is it it about the people who are doing horrible things, is it them being tested or me who it happens to. And I like that it will come to pass. Rapture is soon, my generation 9/24/48.
    I know and seen many things, don't get discouraged he really is coming honest. God bless Tom Tracy

    Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never fails…love casts out fear…

  • Adam Head says:

    Thank you Brother Farag for your words of wisdom that keep us, the believers, updated on the things that are happening in the world prophetically. I am a firm believer that Christ is coming soon for His bride. It is exciting to the child of God to see all these scriptures being fulfilled before our very eyes. My eyes have been opened more in the past months than ever before to just how evil this world has become. It is inconceivable how many people(lost souls) around the world have openly rejected our Lord based on the lies of the enemy. God have mercy on them and may your sweet Holy Spirit reach them and draw them to Calvary before it is too late. My soul cries out with in me "EVEN SO LORD JESUS COME". I'm kind of homesick, longing for a country to which I've never been before. Beulah Land…God bless you brother as you encourage us every week. By the Grace of Almighty God my prayer is that your weekly message will find it's way into the soul of someone unsaved and another soul will make it into the kingdom before it is too late. God bless my brother.

    I will point out that worshippers is spelled wrong. It would appear Clinton and Obama are not only bereft spiritually, they can't spell either. And they want to rule the universe?

  • Pam Burt says:

    Dear Warren Anderson, hang on in there, even when family scoff at you, try to return it with love, now I know how painful, hard and almost impossible that is, keep lifting them up to The Precious Lord of Lords, King of Kings and plead the precious blood of the Saviour for each of them. I believe that faithful prayer is the most powerful tool we have, and I don't believe that our Lord will ignore your pleading – He loves you so much, so cling on, do not let go, even if you are hanging on by a thread. God Bless you xx

    It might cut down on some deaths if Christians would go armed to church. Self defense is Godly. In countries where the people cannot have weapons, I understand that. I know more than one church in US where they have such security. Would pay attention to death threats.

  • Teresa Kerr says:

    Call on the Heavenly Father and of the Lord Jesus Christ… Ask them to take your Will and replace it with theirs… Allow Jesus to lead you, Teach you, and bring you back to perfection for 1000 yrs so that you may be presented to the Father washed clean and pure 🌹❤️🙏

    Why don't you talk about that? Satan isn't going to come at you like a serpent but like a Christian.

  • Christopher Patty says:

    Hang in there buddy. My family left me to die 5 years ago when my wife left me for another man she met online. I was a great father and husband yet she still divorced me and left me for sex with a man she had never met in person in her life. Please pray for my kids. My ex-wife is sick in the head so please pray for her too. God bless you!

  • Marsha Perez says:

    The persecutors of the Christians in your story knows now where the light of the world is as I'm sure he met HIM face to face on his departure from this very short and temporary world in which we live…, and it will not be much longer before these present day persecutors will be standing before their maker giving an account of their own lives unto Him.
    God is not mocked nor can He lie.
    Whatsoever a man sows…, that same thing…, shall he also reap.
    To the merciful GOD will show mercy. Every person will give an account of their ownselves before a HOLY GOD!!!
    GOD is LOVE!!!
    GOD hates violence and He hates evil. We are TRULY in the last days of time.

  • Java Stone says:

    You are missing the main point. Faith without works is dead. Perfect example of what you said about the church being built. You saw it being built. You planned on it being built. You organized for it to be built. After it was built you gave God the glory for it. Same with Islam and the persecution of Christians. Work.

  • Bruce Askin says:

    I beg to differ on the Easter thing, the word easter comes from esther, the pagan goddess of fertility. Eggs were originally painted with the blood of sacrificed children. The Vatican merged the two celebrations. Important we Christians don't taint the most important moment in history

  • Bruce Askin says:

    What you said about Caesar, aligns with a theory I heard recently about Caesar being the first beast

  • Kim Rose says:

    Thank you so much for this sermon. The last part of this sermon I needed to hear. I am on the path on trying to get through my pain and, suffering. I am on the path of trying to complete the test. I wish you could see my face, I have a huge smile on my face. I am Baptist but, I am glad you saw this sermon.

  • eropa kalpani says:

    Yes, I'm 🇱🇰 Christian woman, we are still in shock, in that brutal incident. Condemn that attack all over the world. Our hope is not in this world, our redemption is near. Lord! You said do not be afraid, You overcome in this world, & as soon You definitely come to caught us. Amen

  • joe k says:

    Most christians give no thought to the fact that we (people) were never ment to die. In the garden Gods' whole intention was for man to live forever, the tree of life. Do you remember the moment you were consived? We were created in His image, we know not our begining, nor do we know our end (timeless) as eternal as the Father in heaven. No I'm not preaching "you are gods" as some do. I'm simply showing another way in which we can see how we are made in His image

    Thank you pastor JD. I am from Sri Lanka and listen to your updates for years. Things here are quite bad, but there are brothers & sisters who go through this daily for years in other countries. I have been warning the believers here, to see this happen.. Let us all gladly await for the return of our Lord. No other hope for us.

    I worship Jesus.

  • Annie Oakley says:

    I love your passion! Thank you for all you do!

  • Chris Wallis says:

    Slaughter of worshippers is evil and can never be condoned – killing of man by man is murder, whether those killed be Bible-believing Christians, nominal believers, Roman Catholics or members of some other cults – the world will classify them all as “Christians” BUT WHY, OH WHY, do we do the same? Most, not all, of those killed in Sri Lanka were Roman Catholic whose doctrines lead its adherents to hell. I pray nonetheless that some knew the Lord and some who survived may find Him in their distress but lets get away from encouraging the already widespread impression that the wicked, evil RC church is just another branch of Christianity – as a former Catholic and altar boy, I know it is not His church. The RC church is readying itself to serve Satan during the Tribulation but all true believers should be looking up, ready at any moment for the Rapture.

  • USAFA06MOM says:

    As much as I hope and pray for an early Rapture, I see more scripture about Christians enduring or murdered during the tribulation.

  • ZygoticGoose says:

    Amen

  • Frances Smith @ Healing Poems says:

    No true person of God goes against the commandments. The commandments are for Moral Love to prevail for God's Love to be made whole and One in us.

    Jesus says by their fruits we know them and blessed are the peacemakers for they are all children of God.

    Somehow I think the weapon manufacturers are using divide and cause war because all religions teach peace and enlightenment where people don't want to war.

    People want welfare not warfare and people are suffering because of warfare and fear and stress. Love is not a cortisol but an endorphin blood made whole in us for Healing for All Nations and Heaven on Earth as promised by God who is Love through Jesus Christ , The whole spirit of Love Anointed, The Anointed One who causes Love to be Anointed in us. Amen Ameen Shalom Peace to All Nations in accord with God's promise to wipe away every tear and to remove pain and suffering from man and woman to make them kind in His Love Amen Ameen Shalom Namaste peace to All Nations as promised for twofold peace and Heaven on Earth as promised by God who is Love through Jesus Christ, Love made whole and One in us. 🕊💖🕊

  • Lori Irons says:

    We were stationed at Kaneoehe Marine Corps Air Station from 1982 to 1984, about the time you gave your life to the Lord Pastor JD. I would love to come back and visit someday, but if not, I hope to meet you in the clouds instead! God bless you and your family and the love and faith you have in Jesus, it helps the rest of us to remain watching and waiting for Him to rapture us and take us out of this sorry world. Give us the opportunities to share the Good News with all that we can in the meantime! I can relate to the rent and the cockroaches by the way as well! Our rent was 750 for 400 square feet in 1982 and Hawaii is where I first saw a cockroach for the very first time in my life, they are everywhere!

    I am not so angry with the attacks themselves. I do not expect Christian behavior from pagans. What makes me angry is the deliberate media and politicians squelching of the fact that this is most certainly mastodon of the Bride of Christ by Muslims…it is not a random attack of nonspecific people’s. 😡

    With the current outbreak of measles (700 here in the first quarter of the year, 32000 in Europe) I've heard that Congress is thinking of suspending the freedom of religion where vaccinations are concerned. It sounds good to stem the measles, but if they do this what is to stop them from suspending other freedom of religion or other Constitutionally protected rights? Just something to ponder.
