Bible Prophecy Update – June 17, 2018 - End Times Fatigue

Show Video

All right so. Before. We get, to our, prophecy, update I want to take just a moment as we. Do every. Father's Day we also do this on Mother's. Day the only thing is is that I wasn't here, last. This. Last Mother's Day in May and actually. I got to tell you why okay you want to know why. Okay. I'll tell you I'm so glad you asked why so. I. Took. Mother's, Day Off. For. My wife. Because. It was the first Mother's. Day that. I wasn't in the pulpit, in over 20 years and that was my Mother's Day gift. To. Her isn't. That what. A godly, husband, I am no no that's alright it's okay. Stop. Okay. So. But what I failed, to do was I failed to tell Pastor, Mac who filled in for me that. I always do the tribute, to mothers on Mother's Day and fathers on Father's Day prior, to. The. Video. That's going to be uploaded. On our. YouTube, channel and viewed by you, know many. Many people and, so he. Did it and it. Wasn't on the video and all, of, the comments, were, like how, a, surgeon. You, know where's, the Mother's, Day tribute, and I just want you, to know. Look. At me look at me. Pastor. Mac did a beautiful. Tribute for, mothers you just didn't get to see it so. We're, gonna make. Up for it now I guess, for Father's, Day, all. Right. Why. Are you looking at me like that okay. I, won't take another mother's day off ever. Fuck. Did. I get an amen on that or. For. Me personally Father's, Day holds. A. Special. Significance because. It, was founded, by a sonorous. Smart Dodd in Spokane. Washington, which. Is where I lived, for most of my life it's where I met, my wife actually, in church, 32. Years ago, was. In Spokane, Washington. His first celebration, was. In the Spokane, YMCA. On June. 19. 1910. Senora's. Father, Civil. War veteran, William, Jackson smart, was. A single, parent who. Raised his, six, children in, Spokane. After. Hearing a sermon, about, Jarvis's. Mother's day at Central. Methodist, Episcopal. Church. In, 1909. Sonora. Told, her pastor, that fathers should have a similar holiday, honoring them, yeah. Although. She initially, suggested. June. 5th. Which. Was her father's. Birthday the, pastor's, did. Not have enough time to prepare their sermons I feel their pain and the. Celebration. Was deferred, to the third, Sunday. Of June. To. Which we celebrate to. This day, and that's, just a little bit of history about how Father's. Day came. About every. Year on Father's Day I like to share. Some. Of my favorite quotes, and I'm, gonna start with one of my favorites, which is from. Mark Twain who. So, humorously. Quipped, when. I was a boy of 14. My. Father was, so, ignorant, I could. Hardly stand to, have the old man around. But. When. I got to be 21 I was. Astonished. At. How, much he had learned in, seven years. By. The way I made my two sons memorize, that one so. Along. That same, line of thinking. Margaret. Truman said, it's. Only when you, grow up and, step, back from him or leave. Him for. Your own home it's. Only then that you. Can measure his greatness and fully. Appreciate, it. The. Late Billy Graham is quoted, as saying a good. Father is one. Of the most unsung. Unpressed. Unnoticed. And yet one. Of the most valuable, assets, in our. Society. It's. This last one that, gets. Me I think it says it all. The. Story is told of how, one night a. Father. Overheard, his son praying. And. The. Son prayed this, dear. God. Make. Me the kind of man my daddy is. Later. That night the. Father prayed, dear. God, make. Me the kind of man my. Son thinks, I am. The. Prophet Malachi in. The first part of verse 6 of chapter 4, writes he. Will turn the hearts of the fathers, to their children and, the, hearts. Of the children, to. Their fathers, proverbs. 23, verse, 24, says the. Father of the righteous, will, greatly, rejoice and. He. Who father's, a wise son, will, be glad in him. Lastly. Psalm, 103. Verse, 13, as a, father, has compassion. On his children.

So. The Lord has compassion, on those who, fear Him. That's. Really. The connection between. Us. As children, of God and he. As our loving, Heavenly. Father, so. At this time I we're. Certainly going to honor our Heavenly father on this Father's Day but, I would like to have all of you fathers stand and remain standing so, we can thank, you and bless you and, honor you and pray, as well. Thank. You. Fathers. We matter, we. Matter. We're. Very important. Let's. Pray. Loving. Heavenly father. On. This. Father's. Day we. Want. To honor you, first. And foremost and, glorify. You as. Our. Heavenly father and. In. So doing Lord, we, want. To also thank you for. All, of the, fathers, of which I am one who. Are standing, here in this beautiful church, that I'm privileged to pastor, today. And. Like. Never before. We. Need you, as our, Heavenly, Father. To. Empower us. To. Enable us to. Even. Encourage. Us as. Earthly. Fathers. To. Be a good representation, of, who you are as our Heavenly Father. Thank. You Father. For. Its in Jesus name that we pray. Amen. And, amen god bless you thank you. Alright. So. For. Today's update I'm gonna, again. Do something just a little bit different we usually look at. Current. Events from the previous. Week and their. Significance. In terms of, what, the. Bible says and. What. Will take place in the last days. But. I sensed, that the. Holy Spirit would. Have, me address something, that the. Lord had put, on my heart. Actually. For, quite, some time now having. To do with, what's. Being, called, end times. Fatigue. End, times. Fatigue. It's. Been my, experience that. Any. Mention. Of the, Lord's return is. Met. With this. Weariness. And. Even. In some cases a. Li. Rhiness and certainly. This. Is true on the part of, non-christians. But, perhaps. Even more concerning, it's, also. On, the part of professing. Christians. As well. Now. It's. My belief that this. Is happening, for a number, of reasons but not. The. Least of which and maybe chief of which is that. There. Have been many false predictions. Giving. People, this. Hope, of. When. The rapture could. Or. Would. Happen. But. Didn't. And. I. Think of the proverb, that says, that, Hope deferred. Makes a heart, sick. But. A month ago now a, brother. In Christ Brian, trogir of the Jerusalem. Journal. Who. Lives in Israel sent. Me a very interesting article. But. I have to confess that after reading, through, it I I. Found. Myself becoming, a. Little. Upset okay. Not really I I got angry so. Much, so that I. Just. Chose to archive, it and. Pray. About it. Then. Last. Week as I was seeking, the Lord concerning today's. Update which I always do I. Revisited. It and I. Reread. It but this time I did so through. A different, lens of, sorts. And. In. So doing. The. Lord just has, only he can and, as he's, so faithful to. Just. Really blessed and, encouraged. My heart and. Settled. My heart and. So. My, hope and my prayer is, that, he. Will do, the same for, you today especially, if, you're. Just weary. And. Discouraged. And. You want the Lord to come back. And. It. Seems like he. Tarries. As, it. Were. Well. I'll.

Begin By sharing. A few excerpts, from, the article. Which. Was published in The Guardian back on may 19th. In. It the. Writer suggests, that. For. Many on the Christian, Right. The. State of Israel has. Been seen as a key, to, fulfilling. Prophecy. However, a. New. Generation, has. Other ideas. The. Article, was written, the week that, the. Trump administration completed. Its move of the u.s. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and. I'll. Quote some. Of what, the article had to say, at. The opening ceremony. Two. Of the American, speakers, were, evangelical. Superstars. I don't, like that. Pastor. Robert, Jeffress the. Author of several, doomsday. Books about, Israel, and. John. Hagee, who interpreted. Recent, lunar eclipses, as evidence. That the end times were nigh. The. Fox News personality. Jeanine, Pirro, meanwhile. Declared. That, Trump. Had. Quote. Fulfilled. Biblical. Prophecy. Close. Quote. The. Writer goes on to say that in, the, 1970s. Millions. Purchased. A book called the. Late great, planet Earth, by. Helen Z, which. Interpreted, events, in Israel as. Evidence. That the, great war of Armageddon would. Happen, it. Was followed by the wildly. Popular end, times. Conspiracy. The. New world, order, by. The televangelist. Pat, Robertson. And then. The. Left Behind novels and, films, which, concerned, violent. Clashes in Israel, that, would bring about Biblical. Prophecy. To. Outsiders. These. Pieces. Of, doomsday. Pop-culture. Seem. Like far-fetched. Lunacy. For. Millions of Christians, they. Are a roadmap to, the end of the. World. We've. Been through, all this before. Said. Bruce, mcCluggage. A. Former. Evangelical. Who now. Identifies. As, a. Follower. Of Christ he. Identifies, as a, follower. Of Christ. Throughout. His youth in. The 1970s. And 80s. McCluggage. Was a part. Of the Christian, movement that. Interpreted. The signs of, Israel, as evidence. Of the last days but. From. A Klug egde after. A slow, burn, of things. Not, coming, to pass. That. Conviction, slowly, faded. It. Was a classic, tool used to witness to people he recalled, we'd. Asked if, Jesus, returned, today would you go to heaven. It. Was kind of a threat. And. We thought with Israel, coming together we, could hasten, the return of Jesus. He. Still looks like a member, of the California. Jesus. People a movement, of post. Hippie Christians, who were obsessed, with. End. Times prophecy. He. Still attends church, prays. And reads. His Bible but. Has. Slowly, distance. Himself. From. The Christian, Right. Today. He. Sits in, a, venue known, for. Its post. Evangelical. Post, evangelical. Or. Progressive. Evangelical. Contingent. As. You can see I'm still trying to wrap my mind around this new terminology. The. Venue, looks, like any other hip modern, coffee, house serving. Expensive. Pour over coffee and, craft, beers, to an indie. Rock soundtrack. Books. With titles like, Christianity. After religion. And, the. Rebirthing. Of God. Line. The shelves. Events. Like what. Would Jesus, brew. Beer. Centric. Bible, study. Regularly. Take. Place. The. Writer then. Goes on to say. The. Shop. And. I want you to know that when I say it made me angry it was a righteous. Anger from, a broken heart I. Hope. You. Understand. That this. Is, what's heartbreaking listen, to this. The. Shop is representative. Of a shifting, shifting, attitude. Toward, Christianity. One. That doesn't have much interest, in the apocalyptic. Rhetoric. Surrounding Israel. I want, to say. I'm, gonna make a couple of comments if you'll just bear with me just to, kind of fill, in some of the blanks. The. Word apocalypse. That. Actually, that's the. Revelation. Is the apocalypse. You. Know what the word apocalypse, means. Unveiling. Revealing. And. It's. Seemingly. Come, to mean something, entirely, different. And. And. Even, has, this, this. Negative. Connotation. To it. Quoting. There. Are plenty, of young, and this is where it's really heartbreaking. There, are plenty of young, Millennials. Downtown. That. Would call themselves, evangelical. Even conservative. But are a very. Different. Breed from their, parents, who, grew up. Evangelical. But no longer and here's that word again identify. That, way. They're. Mostly, not Trump, supporters. They. Have a spectrum. Of views on LGBT. Issues and. They're. Not, on board. With end, times, theology. There. Is definitely. A kind, of end, times, fatigue. With. This generation, let, me. If. You'll again just indulge me let me provide, a. Commentary. Because I in, all fairness I appreciate the honesty. Because. It is what it is let's be honest. This. This generation. The younger generation. Wants nothing to. Do, with. Anything. Related. To. Bible. Prophecy I have. A, thought. As to why, and. I'll just share it with you. It's. From my heart, me. And I've talked with my, two. Sons age, 20, and soon-to-be. 18, about, this and. One. Of the questions, that. Gets. Asked, is, from. The young people is. Well. Let, me. Let. Me just be really, honest, the. First thing they say to someone, like me is you're old. In. Jesus. Name I receive that and I am.

What. They're saying is you've. Lived your life. I've. Got my whole life before me I want. To get my go to college, I want. To get married. I want, to have children I. Want. To you know, live. The American, dream and buy, a house and have 2.5. Children and, then you know two. Cars sir you know if you're in Hawaii you got one car in one garage but anyway. And. So of, course you, want the Lord to come back I mean just look at you they. Got a point. But. I got my whole life ahead, of me. So. What. Do you say to that, no. I'm asking, what what do you say, to. A young person. Who. Comes to you. With. That type of a discussion and question. What do you say to them. Well. Here's. What I say to them and, you. Can use it if. You want if. The Lord puts. It on your heart to. There. Is never gonna be. Anyone. In, heaven. Young. Or old. That. Will ever say, oh I. Wish. The Lord wouldn't have. Come, back before I got married. Just. Ask a married person on that one. I'm. Sorry. No. Young person is gonna be in heaven in, glory. Where. There's no more sorrow, no more pain no. More suffering no, more tears and certainly. No more death for, all eternity, saying. I wish I would have went to college, and. Took out a student loan for five hundred thousand, dollars that I pay back for the rest of my life. No. For real. Nobody's. Gonna say that my. Daughter in our devotions, one day, says. You know I I. Want. The Lord to come back but you. Know I want, to you. Know live my life. I said Sevilla. Here's. The thing if. The Lord were to come back when, you're this young oh my. Goodness. Think. Of what in life, you, will have been, spared. From. No. Right, I mean. Come on we here's. The the subtlety. And in. The satanic. Success, if I can say it that way the. The, the the, enemy, has succeeded. In can. And it's really. God's. Holding, out on you it's the same life from the garden. That. God. Is withholding. From. You. He. Doesn't want you to have, and you fill in the blank. It's. The same old lie, with, new wrapping, paper it's been repackaged, and, reinvented. God's. Holding out on you. God. Doesn't want you to I, did a wedding yesterday it was kind of interesting I it. Was the first time I'd ever actually, prayed this. Or even said this especially, in the context, of a wedding it was one of the funnest weddings, I've ever done and, I. Was on the North Shore and. It. Was really interesting because I. Said. Lord we. Just want to have fun and. We. Know that you want us to have fun because you invented fun. Well. That turns some heads I so, afterwards, I'm sitting at the table the guy looks at me and goes what. Kind of a pastor, are you, I've. Never heard that before. You know but, again reason, I share that is because is that not what we do, we. Misrepresent. The Lord's sight come to Christ and, be, the frozen, Chosin. Really. And that's, gonna be attractive. And inviting, to a young person, in this generation, are. You kidding, me. I'm. I'm, I'm, sorry I don't mean to please. No I'm not yelling. At you. In, my cell like I'm, not I'm. Just, this. Is this, gets me this, gets me. Because. You got to know that I I pray, I say Lord there's so many young people on this island and, they need Jesus. I'd. Better keep, moving here. This. Post, evangelical. Generation. Was. Raised on us post, evangelical. Generation. Was. Raised on a steady diet of low-budget, movies, I'll. Give him that and. Pulp. Novels, that injected. A potent. Fear, of the coming, rapture a. Dynamic. Most eloquently. Described. By the late Billy Graham, quote. I pick. Up the. Bible in one hand he said and. I. Pick up the newspaper in, the other and I. Read almost, the same words in the newspaper, as I read in the Bible it's, being fulfilled every. Day round. About, us in the. 1990s. Christopher's. Stroup was. One such, evangelical. He, has now. Abandoned. His faith which. Makes me wonder if he was ever born again to begin with just. Saying, and. Leaves. A, social. Media, campaign. Seeking. To galvanize. Quote. X. Van. Jellicle. 's x, van. Jellicle. X' with. Hashtags. And by the way. Fellow. Old-people. Fellow. No hair grey hair whatever, hair, people, I. Love. You. But. You got to understand, something. The. Young generation. This is where they live. This. Is where they live we. Have no idea, you know I heard someone say and I'm gonna have to check into it maybe somebody can I'm.

Limited, On time he, made this comment that, we hold more. Technology. In our phones in our pockets, which shouldn't be there by the way for health reasons but anyway we'll put him there. We. Have more technology in, our pockets, then, we, as a nation did. On. September. The 11th, 2001. Let. That sink in oh. Yeah. I saw a picture. On social media and it, had a. Smartphone. And then, next. To it was this. Big, dinosaur. Camera, this big you know dinosaur. Computer. This, big, fax, machine, this, you know big whatever, and, it, was all on this desktop, and it said all, of that and more is now in here. Kind. Of put it into perspective. What. Am I saying here's what I'm saying please, hear. Me. This. Is where they're living. This. Is where they're living they're living in the social. Media world that's. Where they live so. He's. Seeking to, galvanize. X van, Jellicle, x' with hashtags. Like. Hashtag. Empty. The pews and. How. About this one. Hashtag. Rapture. Anxiety. Rapture. Anxiety. What. Troubled, me the most. About. This article is. That. It speaks to what I'll call, an. Antagonistic. Shift. Away. From. Bible. Prophecy. And. And here's. The. Concern, here's. The the problem I'm just again I'm sharing. My heart the. Shift, comes, at a time when, Bible, prophecy, like never, before is beginning. To come to pass with breakneck speed. In the, enemy knows it. Jesus. Said the devil comes to steal, kill. And destroy and. He's stealing, especially. From the, hashtag--, generation. The. Blessed hope, the only, hope that we, and they have. I've. Said, it before I'll say it again were, it not for the hope that that, trumpets, gonna sound and the dead in Christ, will, rise first, and we who, are alive and remain will. Be caught up raptured. Up to, meet the Lord in the air were it not for that, hope and the anticipation. Of that hope I would literally, this is not hyperbole, I would lose my mind. As. The world waxes, more and more evil, by the day I. Can't. Even listen to, the. News anymore. And. Even locally, I had a brother. Send me an article I couldn't read it. This. Is this it's, like, Paul said in our text, in Ephesians, it's unthinkable, it's. Unspeakable. What's. Happening, to little children in, this, world today. At. A time, when. The Blessed hope, can. Bring the, hope. For. A hopeless, generation. And, the. Enemy, has, robbed, them, of that. It's. An exciting, time to be alive isn't. It. This. Is the generation. I'm. Almost done so. Don't. Leave yet. And. Don't look at your watches either. Too. Late for some of you right. Which. Is on your phone now so don't even need a watch but anyway. There's. This growing, disdain. For. Those who dare talk. About the, Lord's imminent, return in, the. Rapture of the church and it's getting worse. But. God. But. God as, only. He can. Settles. Our. Troubled. Hearts. With.

A Much-needed. Reminder, that. This. Antagonistic. Disdain. Is, actually. Yet. Another. Prophecy. That's. Being fulfilled. Which. Indicates. Just. How close, we are to, the. Lord's return. Second. Peter chapter 3, turn there and we'll bring. It to an end. The. Apostle, Peter verse, 3 chapter 3, and a second epistle says above all you. Must first, understand. That in, the last days, scoffers. Dare. I say hashtag scoffers. Will. Come. Scoffing. And, following their. Own evil, desires. They. Will say where is this, coming, he promised. Ever. Since our ancestors. Died, everything. Goes on as it has since the beginning, of creation. But. Verse. 5, they. Deliberately. Deliberately. Forget. That. Long ago by. God's Word the, heavens, came into being, and the earth was formed, out of water and, by water by. These waters, also the, world of that time was deluged, and, destroyed. By. The same. Word, verse, 7 the, present, heavens and earth, are reserved. For fire being. Kept, for the day of judgment, and destruction of. The. Ungodly. Listen. Judgment. Is coming. Judgment. Is coming. You'd. Be hard-pressed to, find a, church that talks about the judgment, of God. He. Has to he, is just. He. Is going to judge and. Destroy. This. World. Not. By a flood this time but by fire. But. Verse, 8 do. Not, forget, this one thing dear friends. With. The Lord a day is like a thousand. Years and, a, thousand. Years are, like a day the. Lord is not slow in keeping his promise as, some understand. Slowness by. The way, from. Creation. To the present. 6,000. Years do you realize, from when. He created Adam and Eve it's only been six days. No, that's. Trying. To put. It into perspective it's. Been six thousand years but. A thousand, years for us is like one day for the lowest moment six days that's. Not slow. That's. Not small. Instead. Listen. Very carefully he, is patient with you not wanting, anyone. To perish but everyone to, come to repentance 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. Since. Everything. Will be destroyed in, this way. What. Kind. Of people ought you to be. You. Ought to live holy and. Godly. Lives, as, you, look forward, to the day of God and, speed. It's. Coming, don't get tripped up on speeding. The Lord's coming because if you're anything like me you're like wait we can speed it up. How. Cuz. Let's. Get the show on the road, mm-hmm. Right. Kind. Of get a witness here somewhere. Yeah, good thank you. Here's. A thought, again I'm not dogmatic. About, this I'm sure there are Bible scholars that have a better, exposition. And explanation. For this but. You. Know how it is that when you're busy time. Goes by fast and. Conversely. When, you're. Not busy time. Just. Drags. On, and. I. Think. That's what he's saying, no. No stay with me and, think this through with me, be. Busy, about the. Things of God. As. You live as the. People you ought to. Be holy. And, godly. Lives, looking. Forward, to and, that'll. Make the time go, by. Fly. By. That's. How. Let. Me close. Some of you are saying this. Is your third closing okay so my third closing. There's. Gonna be one. Of two responses to. What. I've just shared with you today. First. Instead. Of being discouraged and. Disheartened. By what's. Happening, some. Will, respond, with excitement, and, this. Expecting. Of, his. Coming. However. It's. The second, response that, I would. Lock like to talk about in closing. And it's. That of the. Anxiety. And fear. Okay. Hashtag, anxiety. Hashtag, fear is that better I. Don't. Mean to be, facetious. I. Want. To be. Loving. And honest and, speak the truth in love and. Say. That if. That's your response, then, I. Need. To, tell. You that. It. May very well be an indication, that, you.

Need To get right with the Lord. Maybe. It's. An indication, that you need to come. Back to the Lord. Like. The Church of of Ephesus. 35. Years after the Apostle. Paul wrote the Epistle, to the Ephesians which. We're studying through now. 35. Years later Jesus. Has John. Write. A letter to the. Church of Ephesus who, had not. Lost. Left. Their. First love and. They're. Told to do three things to. Remember. Repent. And. Repeat. Remember. What. It was like. When. Jesus, was your first love. Need. To repent which. Means do a 180 and, you. Need to repeat, the first works. What. What worked at first when you first came to Christ you, were, on fire for the Lord you were sharing the. Lord with others, you. Were close with the Lord. But. Now. You've. Kind of wandered away. You're. Backslidden. The. Cares and the affairs of this life have. Sort. Of choked out and. Competed. With. That. Love that you once had for the Lord. Maybe. It's a thing of loving. The world and the, things of the world. God. Is jealous for you not of you, jealous. For you. And. He wants you to come home. Well. If. That, describes, you then. Maybe. For. Some. This. Is a. Day. Of recommit. Meant. Rhe. Committing your you know I got saved in 1982. Kind. Of Baxley, went through a couple of weird things in my life in about 1986. I. Rededicated. My life to the Lord and I'll. Never forget it it was on. Independence. Day which is coming up July 4th and I, remember, writing a letter. To the Lord on. Independence. Day about. My. Independence. From. The world and my dependence, upon him, as I rededicated, my, life to Him and. From. That point I never looked back maybe. That's you today a. Rededication. Maybe. For others. It's. Not a rededication. It's. Salvation. And a dedication, of your life to Jesus Christ today and, I. Want to share with you if you just give me. Two. Or. Three. Or maybe four minutes just okay, four minutes, what. Are you gonna say no I. Want. To share with you, the. Gospel or, the good news of salvation. In. Jesus. Christ first let. Me answer the question of what is the gospel the, gospel, is that Jesus, was. Crucified that, he was buried, that he rose from the dead and that. He's coming back again to. Deliver us from the hour of tribulation, that, is coming upon, the, whole earth. That's. The good news that's. The good news the bad news is judgments, coming God's. Wrath will be poured out the, good news is those. In Christ will be taken out, in. First Thessalonians. 1:10. The. Apostle, Paul summarizes. The gospel, when he, mentions, how well. He, and the. Gospel, message was. Received by, the church there in Thessalonica. Saying. That they, were expectantly. Waiting for. His. Son from. Heaven whom. He raised, from the dead even, Jesus. Who. Delivers. Us from the wrath to, come. So. Now the question becomes. Have. You received the Gospel message and. Called. Upon. The name of the. Lord Jesus Christ, to be saved. If. Not I want. To share with you the, childlike. Simple. ABCs. Of salvation. The. A, is. For admit. Or acknowledge that. You're a sinner, in need. Of the. Savior that you've fallen short of. God's. Perfect standard of, righteousness, in. Romans 3:10, it says as it. Is written there, is no, one righteous, not even one.

Romans. 3:23, says all, have, sinned and fallen. Short of, the, glory of God we were all born sinners which is why we, must be born again Jesus. Said, to, enter the. Kingdom of heaven Romans. 6:23, says, for. The. Wages of, sin is death this is the death penalty, this is you could say the bad news the, bad news is, that you were born a sinner and you, are under, the, death sentence, that's the bad news here's the good news, somebody. Went. To, and paid, for your. Death penalty, in your stead his, name, Jesus. The Christ, and. Here's. The good news he paid, for it in full so. That it could be freely, given as the. Gift of God, which. Is, eternal. Life in. Christ. Jesus our, Lord. That's the good news that's the gospel. The. B, is. For believing your heart that. Jesus Christ is, Lord and that God raised him from the dead this is Romans 10:9, and Tenace says if you, believe in your heart that. God raised, Jesus from, the dead you. Will. Be, safe, why is that important. Because Jesus. Need to needed, to resurrect. From the grave in order, to defeat, death and pay, in full, the death penalty, for all of mankind sin. Without. Which, it. Would not have been paid for in, full he. Had to, be raised from. The. Dead and, the. Sea lastly. Is for. Call, upon. The name of the Lord, or if you prefer confess. With your mouth I, assured. This last week I got some interesting, comments. Listen. Every. Single one of us here and every single one of you watching online you, will confess, with your mouth. One. Day. Because. One. Day every. Knee is gonna bow, and. Every. Tongue is, gonna. Confess, that. Jesus. Christ is. Lord. You'll. Forgive me for the way that I say this but more, better do, it now no. More, better do. It now because. Well. Use. Your imagination. Because. At that point it's too late. At. That point you'll be confessing, with your mouth. But. It won't be, so. That you can be saved, which. Is what 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 be saved, for, it is with your heart that you, believe and are, justified and. Is with your mouth that you, confess and. Are saved and. Lastly, Romans 10:13. All. And. I always like to contrast, the all in Romans 10:13 with, the all have, sinned, and. Fallen. Short all have. Sinned but all who. Call upon, the. Name of the, Lord will. Be. Saved. Please stand I. Thank. You so, much for your patience. I know. I went a little bit. Over okay, I went a lot over. I've. Airy much appreciate, your patience, with me I I. Hope. You're encouraged let's pray. Father. In heaven I. Want. To say thank you but it, just seems so, it. Always does just, seems so. Insufficient. And. Inadequate. I mean. How can. We possibly thank, you enough. Certainly. Not this, side of heaven. Maybe. Our consolation. Is that we'll have all eternity to. Praise. You and thank you and worship you lord. I. Just want to. Pray. For anyone here in this church or watching online that. Has. Never. Called. Upon you. It. Is, not right with you it. Is, not ready, for you. That. They would settle that today right, now. And. Lord. For those and you know every heart you see. The heart we only see the our two parents. But. Maybe from. Someone. Who, has. Their. Heart far away from you lord I pray, that they'll come back to. Your. Open loving arms. Lord. Just, minister. To them that you're not angry with them. There's. No condemnation. That. You love them and, you, miss them and. You. Want them back, I pray. They'll come back today in. Jesus. Name Amen.

Thank you for this message. God Bless You !

Am through with this world and look forward to my new life. A life with my beloved Savior, with my family in a truly perfect life in Christ. No fear of the future, no conflict, no hate, no evil, no more hearbreak, no more tears.

Hey J D you do see the FIRE is. pretty close on one of your islands. Just how far away is the FIRE brother? Yep "get the show on the road dear Jesus". We are readying. Got that "READYING", should teach on that PLEASE?

The thing about keeping the sabbaths that is difficult to achieve by following the Gregorian calendar is that the sabbaths do not occur exactly every seven days..if we follow the true calendar of new moon observations, there is a reset of the sabbath every month on the new moon which moves the sabbath day. So therefore, the sabbath will eventually fall on every day of the week throughout the year.

~21: 08: JD, you made me laugh out loud...only because I CAN SO RELATE...

Bless you pastor

That ancient serpent is working overtime to Deceive and Distract the Millennials !!!

Colossians 3 v 1~2 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ , Set your hearts on things above , where Christ is, Seated at the right hand of God! Set your minds on things above , Not on earthly things!

god will be with us

When I die and they lay me to rest Gonna go to the place that's the best! Spirit in the SKYYYYYYYYY I heard that on the radio this morning. Made my day. Completely recharged me.

Do u believe in pre trib rapture? So many different beliefs on that

I have recently returned into the arm's of Jesus, mostly because looking around and remembering what I read from the bible. Realizing that Jesus is at the door, I repented and know can't wait for Jesus return... but I fear for the rest, thankfully God gave me grace, I don't want to be selfish, so I will wait and do His Will tell He returns... thank you Jesus

I know the lion will lay down with the lamb but now the words in my Bible say the wolf will lay with the lamb. In my memory it was also wild ox and not unicorn. But not w unicorn is in my Bible 8 Times. I’m confused!!

I’ve been an online member for many years and trust you as truth. Am i the only one who sees verses have changed? Please investigate as I trust you!

Dear pastor, thank you for these words. I often feel weary and surrounded by lies. I cannot believe what I hear or read in the news or in science anymore. I long for Jesus to return soon, but feel disapointed every day He hasnt. I pray for the people, but want the suffering to end. Hope to see you soon in the sky.

You allready done your best sir, thank you so much for the efforts. Here i am ,your listener and watchmen from indonesia, 21yo. Godbless you and your family especially your kids. Amen.

Taketa Cell — Greetings!

Pastor JD, Hi from South Africa and a big thanks for your unique, stirring preaching which I love to hear. Your Fathers' Day message reminded me of a tract I've had in my Bible for over 50 years! It had this beautiful poem: A Father's Prayer by B H Impey Last night, my little boy confessed to me some childish wrong, And kneeling at my knee he prayed with tears, “Dear God, make me a man like Daddy, Wise and Strong, I know You can.” Then while he slept, I knelt beside his bed, Confessed my sins and prayed with low-bowed head, “O God, make me a child, like my child here, Pure, guileless, trusting Thee, With Faith Sincere.” The South African Presbyterian Minister who wrote it was from Cape Town, and I should think he has long gone to be with the Father, so I'm sure you can quote it next Fathers' Day if Jesus hasn't come before that! God bless you and your ministry. Jenny Hides

JENNY HIDES — Beautiful! Thanks for sharing.

We need a day of correction !!!

It seems like evil has changed ?

When you look how quickly the weeks are going and how fast the centuries have gone, i have found the days are going very fast and seem to go faster as the days go by

My two sisters are like that they are schoffers, sadly

Linda Tucker — that’s so hard! Blessings to you.

Thank you for the message. Blessings

THE Clock Has Stopped Ticking The End Is Now Clear. The Trumpets Will Soon Sound As Our Savior Is Near. The Signs Were All Evident Some Set in the Sky. The Truth Was Foretold It Couldn’t Be Denied. A Country So Strong, Once Standing United Now Kneels In Disgust God Tell Me Please What Has Happened To Us? How Can Man Be so Corrupted And Blind? Always In His Ever Twisted Sense Of Rhythm And Time. Oceans Have Roared In Anger Upon Beaches. Devastating Lives Passed Beyond Human Reaches And All The While The Earth Was Shaking. Buildings Came Down Crumbling From Quaking. Fire Dancing With Furious Flames. Devouring Everything Without Any Shame. Our people Cry Out In Terror And Fear. For The Joys We Once Shared Now End In Despair. Bullets Now Fly And Knives Pierce The Flesh. Our World Has Become Such A Heartbreaking Mess. Does The Life Of A Human No Longer Have Value ? Or Have Are Hearts All Grown Hard As Statues ? And Now World War 3 At The Tip Of Our Tongues. With Chemicals That will Disintegrate More Then Our Lungs. And Still So Many Go On With Blinded Eyes. Believing In Wolves Dressed As Sheep Disguised. Jesus Is Coming And Is Calling His Own. As The Children Of God Anxiously Await To Go Home. There Is No Need To Be Left Behind. Jesus’ Invite Was Extended to All Mankind. He's Calling All His Children Will You Hear His Call ? This Is Your Invite Maybe Once And For All. Invite Him In As Your Savior And Lord. For He Will Forgive And Open His Door. Your Sins Are Forgiven JESUS Died On The Cross. It Was Never God’s Desire For His Children To Be Lost. The Clocks Have Stopped Ticking The End Is Now Clear. The Trumpets Will Sound As Our Savior's Coming Is Near !!!! Written By Chrissy McCalmont Inspired By ELOHIM

christian mccalmont .... thanks for sharing that. God bless you and yours

Pastor JD, I have listened to many of your videos, but this one, BY FAR, contains a passion you have for the lost that I've not witnessed before.  Your conversation with Sabia is an all too familiar conversation... I've had a similar conversation with a young man.  He was saying that he wanted to grow up, get married and have children of his own.  My response is, "If you look at everything that is going on in the world, and then see what Yeshua declares He is preparing for those who love Him, WHY would you rather stay in this world and pass up what Yeshua is offering?"  That's when the look of puzzlement comes on their face, and the subject is changed.  Hang in there, brother.  Soon and VERY SOON, we're going to see the King!  Maranatha and Shalom.

Repent, repent, repent! The day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night to those who are not watching, who are not expecting Him. But those who know the times (the *appointed times*) will not be taken by surprise. Keep your eyes on Messiah, walk like Him, DO what He did, keep His commandments, and Live! He that hath ears to hear...

The power of the smart phones of today hold MORE computing power than the super computers of yester-year ever had!

I always enjoy listening to his lessons.

Absolutely great message. Was commenting as i was going along listening. Great message spoke volumes xx

Heres a thought i had the bible tells us to keep praying if you switch it around then 41 years is only an hour in heaven. So when you have gone an hour without praying that's 41 years God hasnt heard from us. Just a thought. Ive shed so many tears for all the children of this world being killed and suffering. But one tear is not wasted right. We do cling to the blessed hope that Jesus will return soon. Another thought i just had didnt God make the world in 6 days and rested on the 7th??? If the world has been here 6.000 years then thats 6 days in heaven. So if we get to know Gods ways shouldnt he rest on the 7th day??? My idea is hes been working behind the scenes since the word was created So surely it will all be over soon and we can go home soon. The 7th day is coming???

I have heard the same from my children. I told them i guarantee when you go to heaven there is no way on this earth you would want to come back here. Heaven is a place of nothing but Glory we will be awestruck but its beauty. I am only 41 and i am ready to go home. I watch the end times prophecys and end times videos because in a strange way they encourage me because i know the Lord is coming soon. And i so look forward to that day cant come soon enough for me. Thank you for another great message. Really thank you so much. Your videos and messages are so encouraging. May God bless you and your family x

Pastor Farag, I can only salute you for being so forthright. Young people are not able to grasp the significant changes, because they live in a different dispensation to old folks like me .Interesstion is all we have to rely on to my children and grandchildren

In reality, without God you have @ got nothing


The church limits God to their mindset which mostly has many wrong understandings of scripture. Sure the younger generation have been bought up on the technology culture but God knows that and there is nothing new under the sun. What the enemy works for bad God turns for good. No matter what we think the younger generation thinks of end time prophecy God calls with the gospel not prophecy and in reality 90% of end time teaching is just nonsense. There will come those that will bring correction about wrong understandings scripture, those who will be walking in the season of spiritual Tabernacles where they will bring correct teaching of the word. Not new things outside of the word but correct meaning. The church today has camped at the spiritual Pentecost and has a self focused Christianity about what they need to do for God as a ministry but there is only one ministry and one message. Following Jesus pattern in the gospels is the ministry and the message is the gospel. No matter what you think the enemy is doing to influence the younger ones my God is greater and not limited to the mindsets of Christians.

I've waited since 1972. I am not sure if it is in my lifetime or not, but one way or another I will get that new body.

Here’s what I say, better one day in Your courts, better one day in Your house than a thousand elsewhere!

Maria G. — Amen and hallelujah!!

Hi Pastor J.D. I am from Brazil and I've never seen so many evangelical young american declaring be the Left party. This is so scary!

This is your last update, I feel it in my spirit

Jason Smith — wow! I hope you’re right!!!

I am getting close to the point where I am going to stop saying Jesus is returning, only because he will have returned so I will have no need to keep saying it.

Thanks JD for brilliant message, mind you keeping yourself holy as you mentioned sounds like works and quite rightly so! Not in ourselves, but through Jesus Christ and His strength through the Holy Spirit.

Sad for those. Got to keep the oil filled in your lamps

I live on Bible prophecy.....the Blessed Hope, Jesus coming soon literally keeps me alive. I could not continue in this life without that hope and absolute certainty of His return. Thank you Pastor JD.

Unfortunately the young generation will wake up when it's too late….a life in a totalitarian, AI-controlled, fallen world? This is NO option at ANY age!! Thank you for your great work. I am waiting every week for the Update. Be blessed.

What a blessing you are pastor! MARANATHA

My dear brother and pastor Farag, a brother in the Lord wanted me to share this video with you. He gives you mention here and wants to share the "Watchman's Last Call" with you. I do pray that he is correct.. in that case we will meet soon in the Lord's kingdom.. Maranatha!

Hello Pastor Farag! God bless you for all you do! Praise God! I enjoy listening to your sermons! I truly do! Thank you! We are indeed close to the end! Please humor me if you would and read this. You might just enjoy it. Just prior to the clock striking midnight upon the turn of the new year, it came to me that MML means something. So I looked it up on line and found that in Roman Numerals, MML means 2050. The first letter of each of the Synoptic Gospels just so happens to mean 2050 in Roman Numerals. I truly feel that the end of days is sooner than 2050, but who knows! God's time is not like our time, as you and all true Christians know! Also, we all received these signs concerning the Anti-Christ coming: Please humor me and watch this short clip -4 significant things about Harvey, Irma, and Maria. First, 3 hurricanes look like 666, the first letter of Harvey, Irma, and Maria spell HIM, and another biggey is that Harvey was headed right for Corpus Christi (the Body of Christ). And these signs are very huge to me and my husband because my husband was given the date of the Harvey hurricane upon giving his life to Jesus Christ, which really made us pay attention to all three of these hurricanes. We just happen to live in Tampa, FL and felt like we witnessed a miracle when Irma came up on us and then disappeared. And pretty crazy how the Irma caused the waters to recede along the shorelines. Then there was the flood that happened right before Burning Man - that horrible pagan festival they have in the desert in Nevada where they actually worship a tall burning effigy and also, during this last festival, a man ran into the enormous burning effigy and committed suicide. And for many years now, the people at the Burning Man Festival builds temples so everyone of the festival attendants can bring gifts to the altar. It's absolutely insane! We are indeed close to the end. Thank you so much for sharing all your wonderful wisdom with us by way of the Holy Spirit! Praise God! The Book of Daniel says, and everyone knows, knowledge shall increase in the end, and it surely is, and we are all coming together, Glory and Praise be to God, to share with one another what we are all seeing, in gentleness and kindness. My husband and I became born again just a little over 2 years ago and I have never felt this much excitement and hope in my entire life. It has been truly mind blowing. I was never an avid reader and now I cannot put one particular Book down. Glory and Praise be to God in the name of Jesus Christ! I am simply sharing these things with you because you seem to be someone that would appreciate it. I hope that no one reads this thinking that I feel like only God speaks to me. I think sometimes many Christians may come across like that, but they dont mean to and I certainly do not either. I know that all my brothers and sisters in Christ have eyes to see and ears to hear! Hallelujah! Peace and Love be with you and yours and to all my brothers and sisters in Christ on here! Thank you again for your extremely exciting sermons! I love them! Praise God!

Apocalypse revelation unveiling etc will most certainly be complete when Jesus returns in power. No one will be left in the darkness of ignorance.

Thank you and God bless you.

No Pastor you are not shouting at us..youre just Passionate people!!!

I can't imagine anyone wanting to be on this sin ravaged earth more than they want to be with Jesus, the most fantastic pleasure on this earth is garbage compared to being with Jesus. I can't wait for Jesus to come for me.

Amen Indeed ! Any one who wants to remain on planet earth and get wrapped up with earthly things ..... It is Needful for them to Examine themselves to see whether they are in the faith...... 2 Corinthians 13 v 5

sharron fuller Amen.

8:22 Is when the update its self starts. last day prophet Rev.11

Even my son in law, a high theology professor, says, "Oh, people always say it's about to happen, but it never does." What a shame people can lose the excitement of knowing, "any moment" it can come about. I know it could be decades from now, but I still want to think it can happen even before I put the last period in this paragraph.

You are a great "daddy" :) ~ God Bless you and your Loved ones JD. Amen May the Lord help, and guide, and protect my Loved ones. Amen Amen ~ if you see this... please say a little prayer for them too. Thank You

#Jesus Matters! God Bless Ya'll from Ga.You're one of my favorite Pastors ever thank you for all you do!

Yes, so great a message. You nailed it. I'm so happy to have heard this message.

thank you for your infor

Behold I come when things are revving up!

Judgement is due!! Otherwise Gods judgement on Sodom and Gomorrah would seem harsh!

Pastor Farag, This sermon was AMAZING!!! EVERYTHING you said, is so true. I myself have been awaiting for our Lords return, and in excitement. I too look at this world and am so sad at how and where we are on one hand, however, on the other hand I get giddy knowing the time is coming soon. My children are exactly as you described in this sermon, as many of the millennial's are. Even though my children were brought up as Christian, this world has got a hold of them....but we as parents stay strong in our belief and they see that. Thank you for the updates...we so love watching you and pray for you daily.

I have had that same conversation with my children ages 24 & 25, I tell them you will still get to experience marriage, children etc, in the millennial reign, except the world will not have evil in it and it will be better actually than doing all that in a fallen world. Ps- I too am weary, this wicked world is frustrating and exhausting. Willing to suffer longer though , because I see my kids and mother getting closer to God as time goes on, and knowing there are many others that the Father has to complete the good work He has begun, so they too will be ready ! Knowing that Jesus is coming back soon is my hope---we are almost done.♥

I've got my whole life ahead of me? No one is promised that. My life is hidden with God in Christ.

I only feared hearing this when my soul was not right with Christ. After getting saved and accepting Christ, that fear melted away! Now I am like an excited kindergartner waiting for his coming.

Somehow I have a feeling that when it comes time for us to "blast off" we will be very thankful. I think we have never experienced yet the awful times ahead. We will be glad when Jesus calls us "come up here." It may be that when Noah and his family were entering the ark they could already hear the thunder.

Good message pastor, but that reporter was part of the Fake News media with an obvious agenda.

Thank you Pastor for your passion. I was born again in 1975 at age 24. Now I am 67. I have not changed my thinking, thank God. I see clearly everything coming together like never before. People who profess to be Christians don't want to hear about end time prophecy, to the point of anger when it is mentioned. Sometimes I just really need to have someone that believes it like I do to talk to. It can be a lonely reality. How can I not believe the truth when it is right in front of me.

Part of why a 20 year old doesn't want the rapture to interrupt their life is because they are very idealistic about what their life is going to be. In the book of Ecclesiastes it says "mans days are few and full of trouble". If God wants to take me to heaven I am ready to go.

"exvangelicals & rapture fear" !!!!!! I hear you, brother !!!!! I remember how I felt at 14 at the CUBAN MISSLE CRISIS !!!

Come, Lord Jesus, come!!! I would love to see His face for the first time. Wouldn't it be interesting to be talking to Him and then{BAM} you are standing right in front of Him? Of course it probably wouldn't happen that way but it's fun to think about it.

Wow this message was so for me!!!! I’ve been praying wondering when the Lord will have finally enough and praying that He would bring all of the elect in!!! I’m not fatigued though. Even though hardly anyone will talk to me about Yashua’s soon return at least my children, husband, mother and brother will!! God has given me that great blessing. All friends and neighbors do not want to hear it. Even in laws, one who happens to be a pastor himself. Has no patience for me in talking about the harpatzo. I got rebuked by an elder of the church saying I was taking part in being manipulative. And another who said, “things like this should be handled with delicacies as to not scare people away from God. “ I replied, “why should I consider Hell’s feelings? If you do not have the fear of the Lord, you are not wise. “ he mumbled and walked away. I study non stop. I’m watching. But so worn out. I’m a disappointment to myself in this time as I’ve felt my heart fighting so so so hard to stay warm. I want a warm heart!!!! I needed this message and I cried through it thanking Yashua for sending it to me all the way from Hawaii to Michigan. I want to go home but I want to keep living however much and how ever small, for Him. I can’t imagine one day hearing His voice and Him Walking me through the memories of my life and healing me forever. To have good health and to be with my King!!! I live here but this place is just a passing country and my body is just a tent. Lord, send out your Spirit on to the youth, send them dreams and visions. You knew Satan would attack us now with this scoffing and mocking. You will defeat him!! Amen!!!


Thanks JD for this powerful message. I really needed to hear that. I remember as a kid in the 1970's a large mural on a wall outside of Calvary CM which they have long taken down. I wonder why, wish they would redo it.

Please do NOT apologize for your passion! do not need harvey milktoast.

Stay Rooted in Jesus and his love

Remember Enoch preached "the flood" for 120 years. Noah also preached "the flood" for decades. People mocked them too! People got weary then, too! But, the FLOOD still happened! So, JESUS will return too. HE said it and that settles it.

I so agree with you that without our Blessed Hope I would melt down. I hope this makes sense: I am hopeless except for our Blessed Hope. Thank you for this message Pastor JD. I have many friends that mock and scoff at me. Even saying I am part of a cult. I say ok let it be.

So encouraging, so wonderful. Thank you for this message to the body of Christ! Happy Father's Day (belated) to you!

still watching every week on YouTube from Canada

Madness :( oh Jesus come quickly ... we are in trouble and so lost !

do you want your life or do you want you inheritance and a 1000's years a new heaven and a new earth ??? just so you know a generation is 70 yrs. 80 with strength ... ? ;)

Well said

My ten yr old son can't wait to get raptured- we keep the hope alive by constantly talking about how great its going to be during the wedding feast! This helps us to keep going and keep telling people about Jesus. But I can see how other ex-evangelicals are disillusioned by the churches in the US- too much compromise, too much law and not enough love, too much outwardly appearance of holiness without the substance.

YOU should all be saying happy dad's day.There is only one father who is in heaven, come on ppl its in the bible.

Pastor J.D., what a message! You certainly hit the nail!

Ye have wearied the LORD with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the LORD, and he delighteth in them; or, Where is the God of judgement? Malichi 2:17

I never knew the man who was my father. The woman who gave birth to me and later to eight other babies, only got pregnant by MARRIED men. I never lived with my so-called 'mother' because she gave me away to my Grandparents. She also gave her other eight children away to other family members to raise. She never lacked for anything, she would go to the fathers and say "If you dont give me money ( or clothes or pay her rent and even a car ) I'm going to tell your wife that this is your baby." I didnt even know this woman was my 'mother' until I was six years old, when she needed money from my Grandmother and if she didnt get it, she was going to take me away! My Grandmother gave her the money and when I asked why that woman would take me away, Grandma said "She's your mother." After I was grown and married, I learned all about my 'mother'. I, along with my eight other siblings, never once met our different fathers. It is hard for me even now at 68 years old, to think of God as my father. I dont know what a father is supposed to be, since I never really had one. But I trust in Him and call Him Father and have done so since 1967 when I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. And I am surprised that I even wrote this! I've NEVER told ANYONE about this! And here for the first time....I'm telling the world about my story. Sorry this is so long but I can only think that for some reason God wanted me to put this here. Bless you, Pastor! I attend your Church every day and night through your Youtube channel and you give me hope and peace with your words. Again...may God bless you.

Pastor JD there are sooo many young people and young soldiers in Tel-Aviv... they need YESHUA their own Messiah

Elijah will come in the Tribulation and God will do as God says in Malachi 4: 1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. 2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. 3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts. 4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. 5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

Happy Father's Day to you Pastor JD. I attend a wonderful bible-based church (Calvary Chapel Morris Hills, NJ) which shares the message of salvation, especially now. I look forward to your videos.

Pastor I agree that the evil in this world is so depressing you no longer want to know what's going on in the world. Praise the Lord for our blessed hope and thankyou for your beautiful and uplifting message. God bless you and your family brother! Xxxxxxxxxxxxx

My God my God, why hast thou forsaken me. He hasn’t. That’s why it’s called faith. Pretending He doesn’t exist won’t keep Him from coming again. Amen.

Pastor please do a message for those still on for Jesus but are discouraged, Thank you!

When you were reading that article, why sound so cynical?

I thought Hallmark created Mother’s/Father’s day so we had to buy cards and gifts. ( And to make us feel guilty if we didn’t ‘do’ enough)

I understand. I'm 21 and none of my friends want to hear about anything related to Christianity or Bible prophecy. My friend was upset the other day, and was reflecting on the kind of crazy activity happening in our town Seattle. I said "it's been said it would be this way. We've already been warned." But they don't want to accept that. My other friends don't even like HEARING Christian music. They skip right over the station on the radio and scoff when I started singing- saying, " I can't stand Christian music." It makes me really sad. Not only that- but my older sister has started mocking Christianity and constantly taking Jesus's name in vain. It hurts to see people I care about going down this way. I see the's so heartbreaking.

Keep fixing your eyes on Jesus , the Author and Perfecter of faith ....... Hebrews 12 v 2

Yes, hang in there Kalyssta. God will guide your path every day. He will strengthen and give you wisdom to deal with family and friends. Most importantly, they will see you living for Christ and it will be a witness to them. Stay strong!

Kalyssta Drentwett Hang I there, you are on the right path with Jesus Christ. Stay in prayer and let the Holy Spirit guide you on how to handle your friends, family and all the other mockers and scoffers you will come across. May God bless you. Oh and watch previous videos of JD Farag. -Jeff

@ J.D. Farag Yes, that article could very well make one upset whether righteous anger or not it is sad...BUT, it is spot on! Both of my children as teenagers to young adults accepted Jesus and were following Him and I was sooooo happy feeling that I did my part of it and God did His part of it and my children were set for eternity. Then, their mother died at a young age of 50 unexpectedly. They were in pain wondering "Where is God"? Then my daughter decided she was in love and went against all she had previously believed AND PREACHED and moved in with a man who, and get this, actually wanted to get her pregnant and she went along with it and got pregnant and at least that spurned her on to go and get married. She still professes Christ but she is caught up in the things of this world. And my son, who says it was before their mother died that he began feeling that the bible can't be true but is a book of fables. I groan in my heart! He subsequently followed his sister's footsteps and lives with a lovely young woman and has taken over as dad of her two boys and now his own child is due any day now. But he hasn't and neither of them wish to marry. But that doesn't bother me too much because of the love and the fact they are in love and a family I believe the Lord sees them as married. I am so hopeful that family life may open his eyes back up to the Lord. He recently on Father's day confessed to me that he has done some growing up and maturing now and thanks me for being a role model (Hopefully a good one) and perhaps on that day of the miracle of birth before his eyes and they count 10 fingers and toes, he will come back to Jesus. All that to say, this generation is not like OUR generation. Just as the article states, they feel that they will be cheated if Jesus returns before they get married, have kids, etc and have this feeling about heaven as playing harps all day! And social media is the devils advocate, spreading lies and misinformation like wildfire leading our children into dark corners. We need to pray for this generation that the veil will be lifted if even only a little bit so they can get a glimpse of heaven. They need to learn from us, what you were trying to say, that they will be SPARED so much pain and anguish that they just do not realize that it would be a good thing and who know, God may give them children in heaven, the children that they WOULD have had if the rapture had come later. Nothing, NO THING is beyond the scope and power and glory of our wonderful Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ His Son and our Lord. Thank you for revisiting that article and speaking and teaching on it. I think it is a #wordfitlyspoken #GodBless :)

Yes , I'm going through the same thing, End times Fatigue!

last year on fathers day my mother died.

Amen pastor! I can’t imagine living in this broken, evil world without our blessed hope! Come Lord Jesus Come!

Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Lets all finish this race strong..Love you all

I agree. I have to keep my eyes fixed on Jesus. I’m looking for my blessed hope. This world is so wicked.

I cannot wait for the Lord to come back!! Come Lord Jesus come!!! I want nothing in this world, nothing.


Why is it pastor that this social media generation with all their smart technology, as you said, right there in front of them..... Are dumb and ignorant in the things of God?.. I pray for my family, I pray for my son and daughter in law who don't believe in God, I pray for my youngest son who is gay, and for my daughter who says she loves Jesus but never opens her Bible and is so in the world of things and worries. So, yea, I pray daily and have many brothers and sisters in Christ on you tube and a couple at my work place. I busy myself with loving Jesus and relish my evening study times. I really feel, some great plan of Gods to wake up the many is coming along any moment now and praise God, I hope it's soon. God Bless you and your family . Let us stay prayed up, armored up, reading His word and no matter what others do, stay walking in righteousness and holiness, Amen

I'm a "fellow old people". Either you're born again and the Lord is constantly navigating your life or you're not Born Again, it's a LIFE THING. PERIOD! This is crazy, Wow! I was saved in the same year you were Pastor JD

I feel ur sermon Pastor JD, God Bless & i keep looking up

Daniel 7:25 King James Version (KJV) 25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

Just turned 20 years old myself, I am excited for the Lord's return for the same reasons you said... I feel as I would be spared from much pain of this world.

Dear Saints, Please pray for my Dad Irvin's head, that it may grown bigger and is healed , Thank you very much.

# (hashtag) for us old people use to be the pound sign. LOL

This is sermon right on target. I am a UM pastor that studies and teaches bible prophecies. Not long ago i was asked to Dona revival at a church on end times. After the first night there was a lot of young people with kids, or expecting to have kids. They didn’t want to hear about the future, how the news relates to the events in the Bible. They have their whole life to live. They have buried their head in the sand thinking things will be the same as when they grew up.

m m ....He does

Jason Smith oh and I don’t have 0 content you weirdo I just have my playlists set to private so I don’t have creepy old men like you looking at my stuff.

Jason Smith I’ll come back and say hi after he posts his next update

Jason Smith lol you wish I was a web bot. That’s how you probably explain away anyone and anything that disagrees with you. That’s a sad defense mechanism. You’re going to have a disappointing year man.

Thank you for that web bot of Satan, 0 content AI, LOL, in Jesus name go fry your circuits

Jason Smith oh and when he posts his next update please understand that means you have no intuition or discernment and the things your “feel in your spirit” are just plain random useless thoughts you had.

Jason Smith ha lol you have 0 discernment. Have a nice June 22nd. Escape the cult.

josh smith classic cherry picking. Ecclesiastes 9:5 also says “For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.” And Ecclesiastes 9:10 says “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom in the grave” But ya just choose the verses that suit your personal agenda, that’s what Christians love to do.

I'm sorry that you think that. We don't have any fear. Why do you spend your time commenting on this channel if you don't believe?

J T ha well you’re making a future atheist because by the time he’s 25, there still will be no magic rapture and he will realize his parent was a cult fanatic fearmonger who filled his childhood with paranoid delusions.

So awesome to see your beautiful people ❤️ and the fathers

Sharing far and wide. This was a very heartfelt teaching JD, full of His LOVE. I shared this with my son and his friend, 17 and 18 respectively. This I believe spoke to them. Please direct more of your sermons towards capturing the hearts of our children...they so desperately need Jesus.

Jesus Christ will return to the earth when God wants Him to return to the earth, not a second sooner or a second later.

so ready but God ........thank you for these Bible Prophesy Updates

Thank you Pastor J.D. for exposing your message to this present generation of young people who refuse to even try to understand this Season of Time!

Nothing gonna happened.....This July and next July too. To much thinking and To much working...

i will admit that I feel like I am loosing my mind...I watch daily as people are becoming more disgusting in words, gestures, thoughts is the 21st and I feel more weery today than before...I am find that I am withdrawing into myself and just praying more and more daily hoping for Jesus to come and take me and my family especially the employees are surely showing signs of the devils way and my business partner is yelling and screaming at me daily as the end of the day I am I have shortened these events so that many don't feel alone...I do not loose my faith in Jesus no matter how rough my life is getting, I don't want anyone to feel like giving up....Jesus is coming, he loves us and no matter what just keep the "faith"...blessings and look up...God bless us all even the those who do not believe...

"I got my whole life ahead of me" Kid, you don't know what life is!  This place is a cesspool. Seek His kingdom not just in a spiritual way but know that His world is more real and exciting than this old world will ever be.

Finaly HE that Is ~ HU ~ is Now in Me and I in HE ... As Indeed By my Strong Faith , the Messiah or HE that showed the Way to arise from the Grave , has helped me to do the same ... As the Grave is our current vessel of flesh ( 1th dead or Spiritual disconnected from the Tree of immortal life , from the Almighy or HE that Is , whom Pre-exist before All came into existence ), which therefore we have to pick Up our own piece of wood , via the Mind as its precious gift as HE already made the real time act , and to nail the flesh ( the Sin , dark unclean matter ) onto it , to let die of the Old man or foolish and blinded Adamas , once deceived by the counterfeit deity to enter its own Dome , as by the promise we then would become our own creator or god-like , our own father and mother , yet our own creations ain't ours ... As the earth cloth is corrupt and mortal ( dark matter with absence of Pureness and devinity ) , doomed for decay and death , as like an apple whom fell off from the Tree of Life ! Hence why i also feel ashamed , once my eye truly could See again , that through me an Innocent and Pure fruit of the Almighty , descended here as well into a new made vessel ( or Earth Adam ) , as an apple whom shall undergo the same suffering as I did undergo ... As this realm is Not Paradise nor even close to the Garden of Eden , au contrary , merely a life of struggle , as only a walk in the woods , jungle or at the Beach is for free , a daily battle against dirt and dust / rust as slaves , a weak and fragile flesh , a more refined animal form yet to feel or stay hu-man it requires a daily maintenance by soaps / body care , as even the food resources are no longer for free and also requires special treatment to not get poisioned nor get ill , as only the fox and birds have their natural hole/nest here ! As therefore I was ready to nail it onto the cross , already Resurrected from that grave , still Alive , still in it but no longer of it ! Yet already as the Pure wheat , as my own fruitful joy , which means already detachted from the Illusionaire pleasures/material needs of this world ( as to fill in the inner void ) , as to not even call myself a parent No more , as the Almighty already punished this previous Sin ! As to even allow the counterfeit deity ( by its own earthly minions ) to take the earth children away from me , as true , they were never mine , as only part of its own fruits ( Adam creation ) to fill this Dome and to be called a god itself , ... As to merely collect the Pure from the Original Garden as its trophees to Humiliate the Almighty or to devour them as a wild beast , as blood sacrifices to eliminate the Pure , or to set them asleep and blinded to merely fall in love with this realm , and then to pull all into their final and 2nd death or Abyss ! While Now I fully follow the Messiah , as the Light in this Great Darkness , I as the Child of the Heavenly Father and Mother , while in the Here and Now to already live sober ( less food , only organic ) , humble ( as pure linnen set free from idolitry brand-marks fe ) and at simplicity ( no longer to follow the Path of Man which only is the fake BroadWay and with an eye view on the fake " Holy " wood which only can promise an Illusionaire , temporary escape via the Reflection through a black mirror or to let ye act as a copy cat as to also want to live as so called " happy " millionaires or billionaires while their white powder use they shall hide as the only mean to stay sane in their Insane reality to want to be or live/look like gods ) ... So I do No longer have to wait for its Return , as HE already did , as his mission is already finished ( Now Glorified at the Holy Dome ) , yet by simply to follow its paved Path , able to also endure with a Heart of Courage and Bravery the rough trials and traps by the Devil , even willing to feel our own nails and crown of Rose thorns , we then shall be blessed to truly understand the meaning of the cross , of the silver set a few times into the fire as to get completely Purified , molded and Reshaped as NEW , as the perfect shimmering form , as the Original and Glorified Adamas ( again ) , as how it always was meant from the Beginning , while Now while here as also the Living (s) Word ... ! And until the Almighty shall scroll away the Sky/Firmament like a curtain , our own cruxification of the flesh and Patience shall be rewarded , and to invite us to may enter the Holy Dome , the Pure Garden ( again ) ... Whereover its own Pureness and Bliss is poured out over Us , its Throne by precious gems reflected in the Garden as the Rainbow colors , We in HE and HE in us , light as a feather , all noble , as Glorified Adam and Eve bodies in a respectful and equal Union as One , dressed with exquisite garments , ageless , joyful as children , and to may enjoy the beauty and precious gifts of the Garden and all for FREE ... Haleluyah , ~ * ~

Hey pastor J.D. I’m experiencing “end times fatigue” a little bit. I’m tired of waiting. I want to go home. I guess it might be more home sick. Please pray for me to finish the race strong because I feel like I’m going to barely crawl across that finish line.

Amen. Thank you once again. You hit the nail dead center. It is exactly how so many of us feel, as we desire to go home so badly. But we understand, so many do not know salvation yet. Thank you . WE needed this message! And we have a chance now to gloify God by honoring His will. Soon my friends, Maranatha. Lets spread the gospel.

Ther's so much evil, how much longer will we have to whitness the suffering and lawlessness, and oppression, until God says enough and comes to rescue us????

excellent preaching!! Judgement is coming, thank you, Pastor!

@PASTOR FARAG: My daughter feels this way because she wants to get married first, and she is sad to hear that there is NO marriage in Heaven---I know we have no idea about all of the mysteries about Heaven, but do you have any advice that I could give her concerning that?

Thank you pastor JD...

I don’t want to be in this earth any more. I feel helpless, and hopeless, and angry. There is nothing I can do, I can’t change my circumstances or my feelings. God can, but will not. I am trapped, and it’s my fault. There is nothing I can do. I hate it. If only things were different. I’m unworthy, I’m lousy. I’m in despair. I usually numb myself, but it’s buried deep inside. So much hurt is buried, too much to feel with. Please pray for me, please pray I would draw near to Christ, please pray, that God would be my strength and my hope. Please pray that I would be delivered from my circumstances.

Hi God bless you pastor. #prophecynrapture

90% of the people, young and old alike are in this group! Without being criticle this is what the scripture calls " the great falling away" and we are all guilty.

I missed this BPU but boy am I glad I caught it today, for WHAT A POWERHOUSE MESSAGE!!! If there was an opportunity for a rating, I’d give a *****+++! absolutely perfect - you spoke every word golden in what you were trying to express - and as per usual it is always your delightful Hawaii fiery creativity that I KNOW comes through Our Precious Lord - how do I know? Before my death then rebirth in Holy Spirit I was a ridiculously judgmental snob to put it lightly; but now through Him my snobbish judge has been, as a blessed gift from My Beloved Jesus,converted to being able to see Truth when it is present and shining...and you were certainly shining with it here on this special Fathers Day BPU...your message could not have been brought forth more effectively and yet with SUCH LOVE AND PASSION, something I just love with your very precious sessions of Bible Prophecy Updates that I eagerly await every the way... you are the ONLY PASTOR in a search of MANY years that has “caught my heart” to follow towards our blessed True Paradise - I have been with you now for THREE YEARS... a miracle find you are for me, my blessed Pastor Farag - you are a Pure and Most Beloved Child in His Heart ❤️ this is for sure...and how much Joy He must have with your enormous “catch” of His precious once-lost lambs now found! Love you so, and hope to see you someday “here” before we meet at Home which I know is imminently “...just around the bend...”(remind me to tell you something kinda special and certainly meaningful about that last phrase for our journey with you all there in Hawaii on the island of Oahu,)

Same with me!

I loved my dad, but sadly he died when I was 8 years old. However, I have always had the love of my heavenly Father and for that love I am eternally thankful and blessed.

What does "the parable of the talents" mean??

I have believed in Jesus as long as I can remember. But in my teens until last year I was backslidden... I'm 32 now and I am rededicating my life to Him but I am still feeling severe anxiety.... idk what's wrong...

I certainly want the Lord to come yesterday! But I am not discouraged. I am one who was and still is convinced that the Rev. 12 Sign 9-23/24-18 was indeed the Great Sign written about in Rev 12. While many did predict the rapture on that date, that does not negate that the actual sign came and is a sign that the end is soon.

Dear Prayer Warriors, Please pray for my Dad Irvin's head, that it is healed , Thank you very much. - Daniel from Maryland

Man this guy is spot on. Love this guy.

Summing it all up: Be ready in season and out of season. . Great sermon, pastor.
