Bible Prophecy Update – March 1st, 2020

let’s get to our prophecy update I suppose it’s not going to come as any
surprise as to what it is that we’re going to talk about today a sense that the
Lord would have me to address this coronavirus the spread of the coronavirus
I spent a lot of time seeking the Lord in prayer this week and what I want
to do is take a different approach to what many see as the beginning of a
catastrophic global pandemic I mean the news is just terrifying if you’re
reading the same news feeds that I am and I think you are then it’s abundantly
clear that this is causing much in the way of fear and just the headlines alone
I mean when I sit down to start working on the prophecy update I usually spend
some time in prayer just kind of seeking the Lord okay Lord what direction would
you have me to go I’ll spend a little bit of time on the news feed I’ll go
into the scriptures and this last week I mean it was just wall-to-wall
coronavirus coronavirus coronavirus just the headlines alone I actually had to
condense even those because they foretell this terrifying tale of what
may be coming in the weeks and months ahead so if you’ll just bear with me I
want to read some of these headlines and I have a method behind the madness if
you will here’s the first one world must prepare for potential pandemic World
Health Organization China faces the possibility of a financial crisis
which would send a shockwave through the world how about this one
coronavirus crash wipes 5 trillion with a T of world stocks coronavirus wipes
out 1.7 trillion in US stock market value in just two days Thursday marked
the largest one-day drop in Dow Jones history we this is just the headlines
again we just witnessed the fastest stock market correction on record
coronavirus fears caused mortgage rates to plunge to eight year low white house

but when CDC says CDC urges Americans to prepare for coronavirus outbreak this
might be bad severe disruption to everyday life CDC warns Americans of

World Health Organization raises global virus risk to maximum level I think this
was just yesterday Americans are canceling their domestic
travel over coronavirus fears photos of deserted nearly empty airports around
the world show how coronavirus has decimated air travel Olympics officials
wrestle with threat of coronavirus coronavirus I’m sorry I’m if I’m
laughing I this is serious I don’t mean to laugh at
this one but it’s kind of funny a little bit coronavirus may turn the 2020
presidential campaign upside down I think it’s already upside-down but
anyway I just I’m sorry in unprecedented move Israelis advised to avoid all travel
over virus fears Israel election which by the way is tomorrow
special polling stations set for coronavirus patients El Al this is the
Israeli airline El Al official warns airline could go under in weeks due to
coronavirus and then closer to home here in Hawaii and you’ll forgive me again
for laughing it’s a sanctified laughter okay run on toilet paper in Hawaii over
coronavirus fears and then this last one by the way have you noticed that there
have been no documented cases of anyone here on the islands with coronavirus
did you notice that do you know why because nobody’s been tested so have a
nice afternoon no one in Hawaii has been tested for corona virus as health
officials wait for kits from CDC that was out of the Star Advertiser
and by the way there are some reports about even the test kits that have been
sent out as being faulty and so even those cannot be relied upon how you
doing how you doing aren’t you so glad you came to church today what is going
on what’s going to happen what does all this mean well we don’t know is that fair to say
we really don’t know and the experts they don’t seem to know either it’s so
striking to me how much not just the lack of information but the
misinformation concerning this virus and certainly there is no shortage of those
who suggest that it’s man-made the molecular structure of this particular
virus is such that it is not organic in nature that it’s been weaponized there’s
also speculation as to whether or not it was accidentally released or was it
released deliberately and if it was released deliberately what’s the purpose
in releasing something like this deliberately well there’s so much that
we don’t know about this and you’ll forgive me for saying this but I think
it’s a good thing really wow pastor you are one sick individual just no pun
intended stay with me okay to me this is textbook in the sense that
when you don’t know you can turn to that which you can know namely the Word of
God and the God of the Word and I would submit to you that people are doing just
that because man doesn’t have the answer I mean though the whole world now is
fearful about this virus and the potential of this virus to spread and
make no mistake about it this could be catastrophic but that’s a good thing
because sometimes the bad thing can be the catalyst for the good thing and if
this is the bad thing that turns people to the Lord then it’s a good thing would
you agree with me I was thinking about this on
in fact I mentioned it just briefly on Thursday night I’m not fearful I am not
fearful and I want people that I come into contact with to also notice that
I’m not fearful because I want them to ask me why I’m not fearful the reason
I’m not fearful is because I know exactly what’s happening here well
what’s happening here well if this is that virus that ends up being
catastrophic and so many lives are lost because of it well I’m not fearful
because I know what God’s Word says about this and what God’s Word says about this is
that at the time of the end mankind will be capable of destroying all life vis a
vis nuclear chemical and or biological weapons so much so that were it not for
God Himself intervening no one would survive no flesh would survive this
unparalleled and unequaled global catastrophe listen to what Jesus said in
Matthew 24 I’ll read verses 21 and 22 by the way let me just parenthetically say you can take somebody and turn them in
your Bible they need to see it too this passage here in Matthew 24 and you can
tell them that what we’re seeing in the world today was we were told would
happen in Scripture in places like Matthew 24 listen to what Jesus said He
said for then there will be great distress unequaled from the beginning of
the world until now and never to be equaled again and then He says this
speaking of the second coming the end of the world at the end of the seven year
tribulation He says if those days had not been cut short no one would survive
but for the sake of the elect who’s the elect Israel for the sake of the elect
those days will be shortened you know what’s interesting the greater
concern is not so much the coronavirus as much as it is the fear and the panic
because of the virus and that’s the problem because as believers were not
given a spirit of fear and Jesus says that there’s going to be people that
have heart failure men’s hearts failing them for fear because of all of this
this is what’s going to mark the time of the end we’ve not been given a spirit of
fear but of power and of love and of a disciplined mind a sound mind some of
your translations render it better translated it’s a discipline mind we’re
very strict and disciplined with what we allow into our thought life you know the
battleground of our mind here’s the thing I’m either going to be full of
fear or full of faith it’s not going to be both it’s either one or the other now
let me ask you as a Christian and think about this as a Christian you got this
coronavirus now that is causing so much fear do you think God is in heaven going
oh my goodness what’s happening here what it’s spreading more what are we
going to do when Jesus said oh ye of little faith
I don’t imagine Him saying that with a harsh or angry tone I think it was a
almost just a sympathetic tone of why is your faith so little when your God is so
big yeah but God it’s did you hear about its spread people are
dying I know this is really bad I know this is
really fearful I know well God what do I do
oh I’m so glad you asked for the last probably three weeks maybe going on a
month now the Lord has impressed so heavily upon my heart that we today are
living at a time where we have the greatest and grandest of opportunities
to share our faith not our fear because people are freaking out and then here
you are you shake their hands oh we’re not supposed to do that
I mean do cover your if you cough do this (elbow to mouth) okay I mean that’s just common
courtesy you’re you’re out and about and there’s no fear you have faith you trust
the Lord and they’re looking at you going why are you not freaking out Oh
let me tell you why I’m not freaking out a couple of reasons the first of which
is this means the Lord’s coming is drawing nearer than any could ever
imagine because we were told in the Bible that this is exactly what would
happen at the time of the end during the seven-year tribulation this is exactly
what’s going to happen things like this these pestilences these plagues will
come upon the whole earth it’s exactly what’s going to happen so why why are
you so calm because I know the Lord and the Lord knows me and I’m at perfect
peace because the Lord is going to take me as that rat
our Second Thessalonians teachings out of that water before i perish the Lord
is going to take me out of this world before all of this happens well what do
you mean oh that’s the Blessed hope that’s the
the hope that I have I know it’s I want to be accurate when I say this but it’s
not even so much a hope I know it I don’t hope I know it I know the Lord’s
coming back I know this is the truth I know God is in control I have nothing to
fear God rules over all and overrules all and there’s no fear here’s a
question why are we so surprised
that this is happening throughout the pages of Bible prophecy we have dire
warnings about catastrophic events that will come upon the whole world at the
time of the end I mean these things must come to pass that the end will come
famines diseases pestilences Wars natural disasters economic collapse and
even heart failure from the fear this is Luke 21 verses 25 through 28 listen to
what Jesus says and there will be signs in the Sun in the moon and in the stars
and on the Earth distress of Nations with perplexity the sea and the waves
roaring many believe a reference to the earthquakes that will cause these Tsunami
in verse 26 he says this men’s hearts failing them from fear heart
attacks and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth for
the powers of the heavens will be shaken and then again speaking of the second
coming then verse 27 they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power
and great glory and then verse 28 my favorite verse
along with all the other favorite verses in the Bible I quote it off and you hear
it often now when these things begin to happen look up and lift up your heads
because your redemption draws near I guess I you we could be rightly accused
of being giddy when we see things like this happen so driving to church this
morning I there was a just this moment of wow Lord you know and then you’ve got to
be careful because people look at you like what’s the matter with you I don’t
know I’ll tell you what’s the matter with me
what’s the matter with me is it’s that we’re told in the Bible what’s going to happen
before it happens for this purpose so that when it begins to happen we’ll know
just how close His return is I want to ask you this question it’s not a
rhetorical question it’s sincere do you want to stay here do you do you want
to do you want to go home do you want the Lord to come back and when things
like this happen doesn’t that get you excited because that means that
you get to go home pretty soon what’s faith faith is the substance of
things hoped for the evidence of things not yet seen sight is the antithesis of
faith and faith the antithesis of fear do you see where I’m going
isn’t this what we call our faith what do you mean your faith my faith in
Christ what’s your faith in Christ my faith in Jesus Christ salvation in Jesus
Christ and by the way as we talk about the gospel
let’s as Paul Harvey would say talk about the rest of the story what’s the
rest of the story oh the gospel the good news is that Jesus Christ came He was
crucified He was buried and He rose again on the third day and here’s the
rest of the story spoiler alert and He’s coming back again to take us
out of this world not our home so stop trying to dig your roots down so
deep in the temporal soil of this earth because it’s passing away do not love
this world or the things of this world this is not your home I did not create
you for time I created you for eternity and it’s not My will that any should
perish but that all should come to repentance and God is going to stop at
nothing and do everything to get every everyone’s attention and if it’s the argh
easy for me to say if it takes the coronavirus so be it
so be it you know maybe this is that wake-up call that the church in
particular needs maybe this is the this is God saying
warning warning warning and you look at this thing and saying wow this is really
bad yeah this is really really bad I know what are we going to do oh maybe it’s
time to turn to the Lord because if this continues going as it is now now there
are some that are suggesting well you know hopefully there’ll be a vaccine and
and you know it’s not going to continue to spread we can you know it’ll start to
dissipate and praise the Lord if that if that happens okay well we’ve got more time
fine we’ve got more work to do fine but what if
it doesn’t you know this whole thing of the economy the global economy I
mean look at the impact one week on the global economy now we know right that
during the seven-year tribulation there’s going to be a one world economy
which implies that the global economies have to collapse and crash we’re told that it’s going to be this
new world order which again implies that the world order now or better said
disorder again I’m thinking of that headline about the election 2020
election here in the US being turned upside down you know actually when I
first started preparing for the update the Lord led me to James we actually saw
it on Thursday night in Proverbs chapter 27 where the Proverb says do not boast
about tomorrow because you don’t know you have no idea
James is very blunt he says don’t boast about
tomorrow and say hey we’re going to go into such and such a city and we’re going to do
business there buy and sell make a profit earn a living don’t do that
say Lord willing Lord willing because your life here on earth is but a vapor a
mist that’s here today and gone tomorrow there’s no guarantees and so you know
this has been an interesting political week a lot of things going on by the way
besides the coronavirus in concert with the coronavirus in the Middle East right
now there’s some escalating tensions between Turkey and Russia in Syria over
Syria we know about those prophecies as well it’s all coming at the same time
and so it’s it’s how do I say this without I’m going to get in trouble I know
I will that’s okay I’m used to it bring it on I’m watching the whole Democratic
thing and by the way God is not a Republican He’s not a
Democrat either there’s no Democrat Republican right
left liberal conservative none of that okay but I’m watching this whole
Democrat you know the debates and you know the candidates and the primaries
and Super Tuesday and you know what comes to my mind how do you know there’s
even going to be an election oh Pastor don’t do that now you’re starting to
sound like those conspiracy guys well no no no that’s an honest question isn’t it
November this is March First today right March April May June July August
September October eight months oh my goodness
think about it let me ask you this think about what’s happened in just the last
eight months anything could happen in the next eight months we don’t know we
don’t know and here the world’s all caught up in this and that again I I
might get in trouble when I say this I thank God for the coronavirus pastor you
really are sick and you need help okay fine no I thank God for it
because it’s that much-needed reminder and warning ah you better hold on
loosely doesn’t mean you don’t have plans but hold on loosely to those plans
Lord willing I mean I have in my own personal life I have long-range plans
for the church we have long-range plans but we hold on to them like this not (open hand) like
this (clenched fist) because as Corrie ten Boom once famously said I’ve learned to hold on
loosely to the things of this life where I know not when they will be required of
me and she wasn’t talking about material things she was talking about family
loved ones during the Holocaust hold on loosely Lord willing Lord willing
if the Lord wills if we’re still here because I’m looking at this thing and
the potential for this thing if ever there was a time to preface everything
in our lives with Lord willing it’s now it’s now this is why we do these updates
every week and I wanted to try I want to do the ABCs of salvation I want to try
because I don’t want to rush through the communion
today especially because I think it has a special meaning concerning what we’re
talking about and seeing in the world because to me the emphasis is more on
don’t get too comfortable because I’m coming back don’t get too comfortable
down there because I’m coming back what is the gospel the gospel is good news
that your debt has been paid and that you’re free because somebody else has
paid your debt and that someone else that has paid your debt is Jesus Christ
and He offers to us the gift of eternal life and that is what the gospel is and
our response to the gospel and to what Jesus did will determine whether or not
on that day we will enter into the kingdom of God it won’t be because we
were a good person it won’t be for any other reason except for what we did with
the person of Jesus Christ so the first is the A and it’s for admit or
acknowledge that you’re a sinner that you’ve sinned that you need the Savior
Romans 3:10 says there is no one righteous not even one and Romans 3:23
tells us why it’s because all have sinned and fall short of the glory of
God Romans 6:23 says that the wages of sin is death this is the death penalty
that’s the bad news we’ve all sinned and now the penalty for
all sinning is death but here’s the good news the gift of God is eternal life in
Christ Jesus our Lord that’s the A here’s the B the B
is for believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is Lord and as Romans 10:9 and 10
says if you believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead you will
be saved and then lastly the C is 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 be
saved for it is with your heart that you believe and are justified and it is with
your mouth that you confess and are saved and Romans 10:13 lastly this seals
the deal all who call upon the name of the Lord will be saved it’s that simple
its childlike simple well I’m going to have the worship team come up and I’ll have
you stand we’ll pray and then if again if you’re able to stay we’d certainly
encourage you to do so we’re going to partake together today of the Lord’s
table the communion table and I would really encourage you if you are able
to stay and partake with us let’s pray thank You Lord so much Lord it’s my prayer
and I would venture to say that my brothers and sisters here today would be
in agreement with me when I pray this but Lord I pray that this coronavirus
would be a catalyst that would bring so many people into Your kingdom Lord I
pray that for us as believers it would be that which we would see as a
much-needed reminder to loosen our grip on this world the things of this world Lord I pray that it would create with
in us an urgency of the lateness of the hour and even more more importantly that
we would be light in the midst of such darkness that we would be those who can
give an answer of that hope that we have that there’s not fear well sure there’s
concern a healthy concern but it’s not a fear it’s faith and so Lord thank You in
Jesus’ name Amen and Amen

  1. Corona virus…hoax or fact? Is this a ploy to crash the stockmarket to make President Trump look bad? Sensationalism?? One is more likely to die from another virus …..see below. Major cause of death anywhere is the killing of innocent babies in the womb!

  2. You aren't sick at all for saying that the coronavirus is a good thing, I was thinking exactly the same thing.People will seek out our Lord Jesus Christ in this time of panic.

  3. Corona virus thrive in colder climates. The virus is said to die under hot sun and cannot survive in highly humid conditions. That's probably why no case has been
    reported in Hawaii. According to a Chinese doctor who has been treating Coronavirus patients stated that Vitamin C was shown to be highly effective in treating Coronavirus patients. Indeed strong immune system will be key in prevention. Also have you noticed how the media is overwhelmingly causing fear with this virus? Who owns the media? What is their agenda? There may be an agenda with this virus more than that meets the eye. There may be a plot to crash the economy and to cause issues to Trump during this election year. Take note of how the media will use this Corona virus to blame the president. The flu has killed more people. The coronavirus is like a very mild flu. Only people with immune system challenges or people with health conditions are really at high risk. Most healthy people will overcome.

  4. What is going to happen? Well, we are going to be snatched out of Harm's Way. That's what's going to happen.

  5. Just returned yesterday from a nine day trip to Israel. I was blessed to join 126 others from Fresno, Ca. The corona virus was never discussed among us and for the most part, we put everything out of our minds, enjoying the reality of where we were and sensing the nearness of Christ in every place we visited. I will never forget it. This was a life-changing bucket list item for me and I had my 65th birthday while walking through the ruins of Masada. But then we got back to the reality on our return to the States, being asked by airport officials in each stop or through each security checkpoint if we had been to Asia in the last 14 days. Forty people from our tour had purchased a Rome extension and they waited down to the wire, checking in with the CDC and the State Department about southern Italy. They decided to go. The rest of us get back to the U.S. customs at LAX and not one person asked us if we had been to Asia (weird, huh). So as I was once again thrown into the world of fear, having taken a respite for 9 days, noticing our retirement funds are headed south, I could become consumed with worry and fortunately I tuned into this message. It made my morning, thank you. Jesus is coming soon. The same Jesus I meant while worshipping on the Southern Steps, the same Jesus I felt in the garden tomb, the same Jesus I experienced as I walked step by step through the old city of the Jerusalem, and the same Jesus who reminded me of His love when I when I touched the thorn branch (the same typed of plant used 2000 years ago to make His crown of thorns) is soon returning for us, church. By the way, isn’t it interesting it’s called the Corona virus? That means crown. The devil is trying usurp God’s crown, throwing the world into chaos so it will bow down to the antichrist. I choose one crown only, the one I will throw at the Lord’s feet. Maranatha!

  6. Thanks Pastor for sharing your heart. It makes me feel so much better that I’m not the only one who is so glad to see what’s happening in this world.

  7. Thank you for your un-fearful message pastor JD. So be it. If it is the will of the Lord, then all we need – believers – to do is to come to Jesus for strength and protection because He is our Rock and Salvation. Let us all be ready and welcome Jesus second coming.

  8. Titus 2:13
    13 looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,

  9. I don't hold one hundred percent dogmatically to these ideas but I believe that they are very compelling

    The story surrounding the birth of Christ is actually a picture of the Rapture of the church. The whole story actually gives the timing of the rapture. It might not give the exact day and hour, but it gives a very clear time frame.

    Luke Chapter 2 gives the account of the birth of Christ and the story of the Shepherds. There is no account of the three Magi in Luke Chapter 2.

    Matthew Chapter 2 gives the account of the birth of Christ and the story of the Three Magi. There is no account of the Shepherds in Matthew chapter 2.

    Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the SIGN to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”
    Luke 2:10‭-‬12 NKJV

    The sign that the Shepherd's received was that they would find a newborn baby wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in a Manger.

    At the same time, the three Magi received the sign of the Star of Bethlehem that appeared in the east and in which they followed, first to Jerusalem, and then to Bethlehem. These two groups of people received their respective signs at the same time, at the very moment that Jesus was born. 

    Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, Then Herod, when he had secretly called the wise men, determined from them what time the star appeared.
    Matthew 2:1‭, ‬7 NKJV

    In this account Herod was diligently inquiring of the Wiseman exactly when the star appeared because he was trying to determine when the child was born.

    And when they had come into the house, they saw the Young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
    Matthew 2:11 NKJV

    By the time the three Magi came to Bethlehem, Jesus was at least two years and 3 months old, if not a bit older than that.
    We note from this passage that they didn't come to the stable to see a newborn baby, they came into the house and found the young child with Mary his mother.

    Then Herod, when he saw that he was deceived by the wise men, was exceedingly angry; and he sent forth and put to death all the male children who were in Bethlehem and in all its districts, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the wise men.
    Matthew 2:16 NKJV

    Herod knew how old the child was because he had determined his age by talking to the Wisemen and diligently inquiring when the star had appeared which signified the moment of his birth.

    Now this is how all of this ties in with the Revelation 12 sign of September 23rd 2017 and the day in which we are living right now.

    We know that the three major characters of the Revelation 12 sign have dual representation.

    The woman first represented Mary, giving birth to Jesus and in modern days represents the nation of Israel which gave birth to the body of Christ. The woman giving birth was portrayed by the constellation Virgo, the virgin. The Rapture of the church is literally portrayed by a woman giving birth in many places throughout the scriptures.

    For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, (Israel) as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

    1 Thessalonians 5:3 KJV

    The male child first represented Jesus and now represents the body of Christ. The male child of course was portrayed by the planet Jupiter.

    The Great Red Dragon represented Herod who tried to destroy the male child and now the great red dragon represents Satan along with the Antichrist and the Beast system who will try to destroy the body of Christ.

    Just like Jesus when he was 2 years old was forcefully and violently snatched out of Harm's Way (harpazo) by Joseph as he fled into Egypt with the child and his mother, so, in the same way, the male child represented by the body of Christ being birthed, portrayed by the Revelation 12 sign, will be forcefully and violently snatched out of Harm's Way (harpazo) and caught up to the throne of God. (raptured)

    At the time that I write this post it's Christmas. At Christmas 2019 it is 2 years and 3 months past the Revelation 12 sign which signified the birth of the male child.

    Just like Jesus was snatched out Of Harm's Way sometime between his second and third birthday when he was 2 years old, I believe that the church will be also be snatched out of Harm's Way sometime between it's second and third birthday signified by the Revelation 12 sign.

    If this type and Shadow holds true we must be raptured before September 23rd of 2020.

  10. I am not overconfident about these ideas not going to be 100% dogmatic concerning these but I think you'll find them interesting if you haven't read them before.

    I believe the Rapture cannot  at this point, be more than 7 months away, according to the Fig Tree generation prophecy.

    Just like Jesus fulfilled the first three spring feast days or appointed times, all in the same year all one after another, I believe that he is going to fulfill the last three feast days in like manner all in the same year and all one after another.

    I also believe that since these feast days are called Moedim, Appointed Times, they must be fulfilled by Jesus.

    The Rapture of the church cannot and will not fulfill the Feast of trumpets and then expect the other 2 fall feasts to be fulfilled in like manner as the three spring Feasts.

    The most likely scenario for those three feasts to be fulfilled one after another would be for the second coming of Christ, The Return of Christ to Earth to fulfill the Feast of trumpets.

    10 days later, the Day of atonement is fulfilled when Christ redeems His People Israel.

    We take into consideration that Israel in that day, has just recently had the blindness lifted from their eyes when the fullness of the Gentiles had come in. The fullness of the Gentiles will happen when the last Gentile believer/tribulation saint is martyred.

    After that, the Feast of Tabernacles would be fulfilled by Christ as we move on into the Millennium and the Jewish people inherit the Kingdom prepared for them, the millennial Kingdom.

    If the return of Christ fulfills the Feast of trumpets immediately after the tribulation of those days, then that means that the tribulation must start 7 years earlier sometime around the Feast of trumpets which happens to be in September.

    The 80-year cut off point for the generation who sees The Rebirth of the nation of Israel is May 14th 2028.

    There must be enough time after the Rapture happens and before the tribulation starts for the Antichrist to be revealed, and rise to a position of power where he has the authority to confirm the Covenant with many (Daniel 9:27) for 7 years. That event is what starts the tribulation. That event must happen around September or October, probably no later than early November.

    If it happens in 2020, it means that the tribulation would end around September of 2027.

    If the Rapture were to happen in spring or summer of 2021, it means that the tribulation would end around September of 2028 which is 4 months past the deadline of May 14th 2028.

    In my estimation, the Rapture of the church must happen no later than the summer of 2020 for the fig tree generation prophecy to be properly fulfilled.

    “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near.  So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors!  Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place.
    Matthew 24:32‭-‬34 NKJV

  11. Pastor JD you have such a way of "saying like it is", and we are so grateful for that. Our time IS running short and our Blessed Hope WILL soon be returning. So there is no need for us to FEAR the Coronavirus. We'll be here till our Lord returns, or he will take us home. It's a win-win!! God bless you and keep you always!

  12. We are seeing the WORD come to PASS , and also we are observing the NEW WORLD ORDER using viruses to control the population, after all China who probably has the highest amount of people living there have had various forms of child control before , so now they have targeted the population

  13. Hi JD…I have been following you for some time along with other CC Pastors…could I ask please that if Covid 19 starts to affect the meeting of your church …could you carry on preaching online so we can still get the teaching.
    Sorry if that sounds cheeky but here in the UK we don't get this kind of teaching and really…we need this…it keeps us going in these tough times.
    Christian love and GODs blessing to you …your family and the church from Norfolk UK.
    Praying you keep well …see you guys in Heaven.
    Gilly wife of Mark

  14. Predictably—fear mongering to affect elections and market by the globalists.

  15. Just read the 91psalm and pray to the Lord for his protection and keep your faith in him. Thanks Pastor for the update.

  16. Thank you, JD. You are such a blessing. That’’s one of my fav Bible verses in James. “Life is like a thin vapor that appears for a little while and then it vanishes away.”

  17. are there a lot of people leaving the services early in Hawaii? i just noticed him continuing to encourage people to stay. just curious

  18. Thank you Pastor J.D. . I pray that one day soon you will lead an online communion so that we can partake with you. Thank you for your updates. God Bless.

  19. I pray all of this causes people to turn to Jesus and be saved!

  20. We are called to preach the Gospel. Time is short. Copy/Paste/Customize and send this out to family, friends & neighbors. JESUS IS COMING SOON!
    Dear_____ ,
    I love you and I am honored to call you my _______. Having you In my life has truly been a blessing. I have recently been given a great truth that I wanted to share with you; God is Real. Our eternal destiny depends on believing in him and relying on him completely. The simplest way to explain Salvation through Jesus Christ can be found below. I wanted to send you this information in case you haven’t quite seen it expressed this way before.

    Rom ‪3:10‬ As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
    Rom ‪3:23‬ For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
    Rom ‪6:23‬ For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Rom 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
    Joh ‪3:16‬ God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    Eph 1:7  In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

    Rom 10:9 If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
    Rom ‪10:13‬ For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
    Act 4:12  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

    I pray that you will come to the loving knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and I implore you to CALL ON HIS NAME, TODAY. I hope we can spend eternity together, joyfully giving him thanks and praise for his saving grace and mercy. All glory to God His love endures forever.


  21. It's so wonderful to listen to you!! I hope you'll preach in heaven, too!

  22. If only I could find a preacher like pastor JD around knoxville TN but I'll keep looking

  23. This is an article I saved back in 2014 naming the virologist who created this virus…for some reason I knew I would be hearing about it again…

    I found this article on the same day…this was back when Ebola was crossing our borders..

  24. I live in Washington state , 11 miles from where the first person in the US has died of the virus, Kirkland, Wa. People here are freaking out. I don’t buy it. It’s all hype. What is angering me if people and the government preying on people’s fears. I also think how scary things like this must be for unbelievers. They have no hope, no peace, they are swayed by the fears of the world. I need to get out and spread the gospel. The ABC’s.

  25. Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,whose mind is stayed on Thee:because he trustees in Thee. Trust ye in the Lord for ever: For in THE LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength. Isaiah 26:3&4

  26. I think the virus is a good thing as well. I've felt this way from the very beginning. GOD will use this for His good and His glory to draw people toward Him. What a loving and merciful GOD we serve.

  27. I believe the news is magnifying this Coronavirus. Let me explain, influenza which is here already, kills 10,000-12,000 in the U.S. EVERY flu season. Where's the common flu in the news?? 10,000 to 12,000!

  28. "He is risen! Hallelujah!" The best news in the history of the lost world!

    We are sent by God to all the earth! We have good news! Jesus Christ sent us. He empowers us by God the Holy Spirit in us.

    There is no greater praise for the Glory of God than the blessed truth of his word.

    Romans chapter 10: verse 17 Then faith comes from hearing and hearing by the word of God.

    Romans 10:
    13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
    14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
    15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!


    And he said to them: Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark chapter 16: verse 15


    Isaiah chapter 7: verse 14:
    Therefore, the Lord himself will give you a sign; Behold, a virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel, which means: Hebrew: עִמָּנוּאֵל, "God with us" in human flesh as man but without sin. His shed blood would eventually pay the price of all sins of all sinners! And he would be crucified and die and rise from the dead on the third day. Jesus had to die. His death, burial, resurrection and shedding of his sinless blood were necessary to pay all sins once and for all. (See * 1 Cor. 15: 3-4 and * Ephesians 1: 7 below)

    John 3
    16 For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him can be saved.

    " For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" Romans chapter 3: verse 23

    "The wages of sin is death, but God's free gift is eternal life in Christ Jesus, our Lord." Romans chapter 6: verse 23

    "I am the way, the truth and the life: nobody comes to the Father except through me." (John 14.6)

    "… Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and was buried, and on the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures" 1 Cor. 15: 3-4

    "In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace." Ephesians 1: 7

    " For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins." Matthew chapter 26: verse 28

    Ephesians 2: 8-9 "Because it is by grace that you have been saved by faith, and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God, not by works, so that no one can boast."

    Romans 10:
    9 If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God raised him from death, then you will be saved.
    10 For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
    13 For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

    Salvation, the forgiveness of sins, is available to anyone who trusts in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Those who have rejected the free gift of salvation (see John 3: 16-17 above) according to the Gospel of Jesus Christ will suffer the judgment on their sins and the eternal separation from God and the Family of God on earth and in Heaven forever.

    "Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." Romans 5: 1

  29. Trust Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Things will be fine. Proverbs 3:5-6.

  30. God is allowing this to get people on board….what plagues that come next will put this one to shame.
    Man (Satan) made this…..God is allowing this.

  31. We wrestle not……

    The fear may be the real danger of this virus.

  32. Pre-Trib rapture doctrine could possibly lead millions of Christians to take the mark. Hope for pre-trib plan for post trib.

  33. If Covid-19 makes it to southern IN and I catch it, well I know what will happen to me because I have underlying health condition. Does that scare me? Not at all because my Lord and Savior holds my soul and I know I’ll go home if that is God’s Will.

  34. Wa state Costco shelves empty on water, tp, meat empty

  35. I would hope we dont have another 20 years, let alone 5. I want Him to come NOW! This world is awful

  36. Something happened today… it scared me so bad, my heart was beating out of my chest for hours my hands were shaking even now nearly 9 hours later I'm still rattled. I was woken up by something falling in the attic of my house. It was small at first but it was loud enough to wake me. After I got up I just kept hearing the sounds. It seemed to move up and down one side of the house over my bathroom and bedroom. Like things falling. It terrified me. I had calls to make things to do and I just couldn't my heart was beating so hard I was worried it might trigger a heart attack. I was shaking and crying scared that it was either rats, they had been on the news that they were getting into peoples homes all over the valley the guy on the news said that it wasn't IF they would get into your home but WHEN so I was scared it might be them or maybe my house was falling down. I called everyone I knew most never answered I just got there machines. The one that did answer said he couldn't come and that he didn't do that, I asked him if he would go look up there to see if he could see anything he said no. I didn't know what to do so I did the only thing I could think to do I called the police. The girl on the other end of the line stayed with me till the police came. They came with guns, shot guns out standing behind there open police car doors that was just as scary. They thought I was telling them that there was someone up in the attic but I told them no I didn't think there was a person up there at least I hoped there wasn't a person up there. The cops absolutely did not want to go look in my attic. The one cop asked if I had a ladder I did it was short so he barely went up moved the covering to the attic and couldn't really see anything. While here I told 2 of the officers, the one who went up and another one both of whom believed in God about the miracle that the Lord did for me with my pool both were amazed and thanked God for that miracle too. They stayed a while told me to call an exterminator and left but here's the thing… while standing out there talking to them I felt water hit me. I said is it raining??? They said yeah can you believe it its sunny out yet its raining too. It wasn't coming down hard at all just a few drops. Even before I called them while in my bathroom I noticed what looked like streaks water streaks I thought it rained??? Noooo it couldn't have rained but it did. Then after the police left I came back in and turned on the news and…. they said we had hail!!! I thought hail???? :O Could THAT have been what I had been hearing??? Hail??? But only on one side of the house for 3 plus hours??? I dont know I pray that it was just that hail. I have seen rain come down only on one side of the street before so I know that that's possible but hail today on a sunny day in Arizona?? Why have I put this story here on this page? For one reason only but before I get there let me fill you in on several other things first… first today is 9 months to the day I watched my Mom die at the hands of quacks to are responsible for her death and last night I was crying about that. Then yesterday I again woke up to the sound of a door bell ringing only it wasn't my bell but it sounded exactly like it. Then for the last 2 days I have been wondering if I should tithe this month since my Mom died with no life insurance things have been worse then bad. As bad as things have been for the last 2 months I tithed anyway and God has given me more then what I gave. So last night I got my Bible and like always I asked the Lord was there anything in particular that He wanted me to see. He said go to Malachi. I asked where in Malachi He said just start reading. That's when I saw it, the Lord answered me on whether or not to tithe. Malachi 3: 6….. on Robbing God of tithes and offerings…. I said out loud I hear You Lord I got that ok Lord. Its funny as I'm writing this its raining right now. All of this??? This is the Lord dealing with me isn't it? What do you guys think I really need some feed back from my Christian Brothers and Sisters. Thank you I love you Peace.

  37. I bless all the believers and also unbelievers right now. Time is almost up and we need to keep the faith and pray for all who still hasn’t come to Jesus yet. Judgment is coming and you don’t want to be left behind. Our redemption is so very near now and we all must be ready keeping the faith in the Lord.

  38. Living in Northern Thailand​ I can say this with complete confidence…the Western media back home there is responsible for over-sensationalizing this nonsense. Buy yourself some hand sanitizer and wash more often, and enjoy your day. The common Flu has a higher mortality rate that Covid-19. God bless.

  39. Sound the Trumpets, Father God says we are ALMOST HOME SAINTS in Jesus mighty name. Amen

  40. The world wide spread of Corona will be blaimed on the physical handling of cash. Next implementation will be a cashless society bringing in the official implementation of the Mark of the Beast.

  41. God is not only warning the world, he’s warning his Church. I’ve been feeling down in the pit and instead of drawing closer to God, I shied away. But God, as always, by his Spirit kept calling me back to himself. My wife gave me prophetic word, her aunt did the same and then Sunday, God spoke to me again. I don’t fear the Coronavirus, I take it seriously, but I don’t fear. I am not of this world and neither is my family. These things and more shall come to pass, but the end is not yet. I know my Redeemer lives and I know our redemption draws very near. I truly have enjoyed watching and sometimes just listening (eyes closed) to these prophecy updates by Pastor Farag. Everything has always been shared by him, in light of Scripture and not personal opinion, Biblical context and not media hype. Thank you for your dedication to the Lord and for bringing these updates for us online viewers to enjoy (with great opposition I suppose). This is a huge wake up call to the Church of Christ, get ready and be steadfast, for we don’t know the hour in which the Master will come. Even so, come quickly Jesus! Amen! Blessings to all my brothers and sisters!


  43. The Lord has given us a strong mind. Lower the pH in your body to fight a virus. Here is a study on the Coronavirus.

    Conformational change of the coronavirus peplomer glycoprotein at pH 8.0 and 37 degrees C correlates with virus aggregation and virus-induced cell fusion.

  44. Sake of the elect: those during tribulation who put faith in Jesus Christ.

  45. The virus doesn't bother me as much as the hideous immorality, killing the unborn and now trying to legislate after being born?!!! The drag queen story hour movement… We are giving evil power by how we vote! Guess what? God is moving by lifting his mighty hand of protection for our choices.

  46. It's part of God's judgment the coronavirus. People aren't turning from sin. Matthew 24:1-8 comes to mind the times we are in now.

  47. Praise God for Jesus Christ how died for us. We stand on the Word of God. Ps 103 : He forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases.

  48. Yes JD, you are sick. With the JESUS FLU! Hahah.
    And that's no virus. It's a vaccine.

  49. yes i agree. what the enemy meant for bad , God can use for good… (harvest)

  50. This channel is stealing your videos and asking for donations to support his

  51. I'm not worried about what's happening today. God told us, fear not. I don't fear the virus either. Whatever happens, happens. God is in control.

    Ministry Revealed – takes a few minute for the video to start. This will bless you tremendously.

  53. I went to visit another church to find one closer to me. I asked the Pastor a few questions. I asked him if he preaches about the END TIMES? since we are in the LAST DAYS. I WAS IN SHOCK THAT HE SAID JESUS CAN COME TODAY OR 2000 YEARS FROM NOW. I SAID HUH??? 2000 YEARS FROM NOW?? How can any Christian, more a Pastor not know the lateness of the hour? Too bad its a great church and he had a powerful sermon when I visited.

  54. May the Lord help you get better soon ALL GLORY AND PRAISE TOGOD AMEN


  56. Amen.. Pastor JD, I'm not fearful either… We know where we are going.. I love your prophecy updates.. God bless you and your family….<3

  57. It’s Said It’s Like The Influenza Flu 😷 That is Here Every Yr, They Just Want U To Panic, And No Pres Trump Didn’t Do It,,,

  58. Folks. We are in the Brink going Home … in a Twink of an eye! Maranatha! Come QUICKLY LORD!!

  59. "And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven." (Luke 21:11)

  60. There was a great sign in the Heaven that happened that was talked about in Revelation 12 (KJV)1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

    This happened as of Sept. 23rd 2017


    Luke – 21: 28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

    They are telling us that we need to look up. that’s when it all starts, a time clock. When we see these things begin look up for our redemption draws nigh.

    So taking Daniels time line (I’m Not date setting.) just a thought. Something to watch for.

  61. look at this!

  62. Love your update! I look forward to this every week, it's the highlight of my week! Thank you!

  63. Thank you, pastor Farag, for keeping us UPDATED!
    I do believe that ALL EVIL on the Horizon is working for GOOD to those who LOVE God.
    I am really NOT AFRAID of that Virus since the beginning of.
    The Lord took my thoughts to the Plagues of Egypt and focused my attention on the LAST Plague – the Angel of Death, remaining me how the Israelites were preserved by the blood of the Lamb's Sacrifice on their doors.
    🐑 It was far enough to understand that the House of the Lord, God's Family, will be SAFED during this Plague named "Coronavirus" because of the blood of Jesus -the Lamb of God, which is on the door of their Hearts.
    I DO BELIEVE all Newborn Believers will be SAFED!
    Glory to God!

  64. Hey Pastor JD! Love you Brother! Would you talk about Jeremiah 49 34-39, the prophecy against Elam? Blessings! – Daytona Beach, FL.

  65. JD, I'm a teenager aspiring to be a Navy SEAL and am wondering how to seek the Lord concerning my future. Any thoughts?

  66. Its like God is giving the mini versions of what will be happening in the tribulatio
    .. Exciting times to say the least!

  67. 1999/2000 I saw Jesus coming on a cloud in a dream and I was standing I think in a crowd and I said I didn't want to go to hell I was snapped up out of sleep afraid and curious to be honest

  68. Be at peace and don’t worry for God is in control.

    Pandemics have come and gone. Stock markets go up and down. Civilizations rise and fall. People are born and people die.

    Only the Lord our God stays true and strait.

  69. Coronavirus is being used to control people. It is that plain and simple.

  70. True…..many Aussies have gone mental being toilet paper in bulk. 🤤

  71. "Before him went the pestilence, and burning coals went forth at his feet. " (Hab 3:5)

    Covid-19 may be the start sign for the 7 years tribulations. The day of the lord draw close every belieiver should do what is written in :
    "Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD'S anger."
    (Zep 2:3)

    "Ye shall be hid" = raptured.

  72. Pastor JD. Are the Jews still God's people?? If so why is the Israelites now mentioned and not the Jews. What is the difference??

  73. The virus is man made, it's not even a question and no one is debating that. The Institut of Technology in New Delhi printed out a report on that about a month ago, there is no doubt that it is man made. Just don't know if it was spread intentionally or by accident.

  74. I don't read any 'news' feed. I know when I'm being lied to, and that's all they do. I get my news via Patriot Soap Box here on YT & know what's really going on. But I also know the time is short for us to share Jesus with the lost. We also do your sermons at night on PSB! The host is Criss Croix, but that is her screen name. Thank you for allowing us to share your word together!*•`•.¸¸.•´• 💜🌸💚❥༺✿.•

  75. I believe you Pastor and what the world is preaching in support of the Prophecy.

  76. Dear Pastor, With all due respect, we have an even worse "virus" spreading in our country and that's the "Trump Virus." He has downplayed the coronavirus because as a Narcissi and lover of money. He's worred that the Stock Market will crash so he downplays the virus for the sake of a "Vote." He has taken our troops out of "Syria" and ten of thousands of men, women and children are fleeing..No hope. He's a wicked man who lies on a daily basis. When no man says there is no "Global warming, Or a, "Serious virus" is satanic. Republics will not look to the truth. They turn there heads to the realism of what's happening. Trump gave a man (Rush Limbaugh) the "Metal of honor." Rush is a ruthless and nasty man. He's a bigot and the list goes on. Were living in a "Godless World." How can we condone what's happening to this planet? Why, for crying out loud, is the Church not speaking up.. It's sad to see the "Evangel gal Christians" back these wrongdoings.. It's greed and lust for money. The bible says, "Not to store our treasures on earth." Who can follow a president who puts up walls and destroys the families who have lost their children. Did you know over ten thousand children were ripped from their parents because of this "Wall?" There is so much evil and God said, "Even the Christian will be duped." It saddens me that so many have developed a blind eye to what's happening. We are in the "Last days." I just wanted to speak from my heart and share what I believe to be the "Truth."

  77. Thank you brother JD. Faith completely opposite of Fear. Maybe this is a wake up call to all. I know in my own heart that my commitment to Him (Jesus) must increase. Lord be Merciful to me a sinner. Thank you Holy Spirit for Convection that comes to us. Lord please help me to be a better servant. Lord I need you, oh how I need you every hour of every day. My One Defence / My Righteousness oh how I need you.

  78. Whatever did people do before toilet paper? Uuuuuhh. Cloth wipies !!!!

  79. My granddaughters mother passed away almost 2years ago & she misses her mother. My granddaughter who was 3 and a half @ her mother's passing now @ 5 asks her father if they could drive 2 heaven & visit her mother. My son, her father tells her it's not possible. People don't realize how important it is to be saved. U never know what 2 morrow brings.
