A Transgender lifestyle is not Biblical

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: In the Scriptures we find that God created the animals in pairs with just two genders and he also created humans in the same way.

DJ: Well that’s right and we find this in two very clear accounts. One with regard to the animals in Genesis chapter 6 leading up to the flood. In verse 18 of Genesis chapter 6 God says, I will establish my Covenant with you and shall go into the Ark and of every living thing of all flesh you shall bring two of every sort into the Ark to keep them alive with you, they shall be male and female.

Then going back to Genesis one concerning men and women in verse 27, so God created man in his own image in the image of God he created him male and female he created them. It’s men and women together that most fully express the image of God.

JD: I recall that you brought out a great point and that has to do with the resurrection of the body.

DJ: Well we understand that the first resurrection will be at the rapture of the church. All believers will have a resurrection into a physical body. But we also know there is a second resurrection spoken of in Revelation chapter 20 in conjunction with the great white throne judgment. Unbelievers will also be resurrected in a physical body. So, that means that no matter what somebody might do to their body for example, taking hormones to alter their physical appearance or even going through sex reassignment surgery to alter their physical bodies. 

The fact is this, that they are conceived and they are the gender that they are when they were born; their DNA, their genetics correspond to that gender. And at the resurrection whatever has been done to our physical bodies whether they be tattoos or any other modification the fact is we will be resurrected with the physical gender that we had at birth. And so we will spend all eternity with the gender that corresponds to what came into being at conception.

JD: David James with a Biblical prospective to the transgender lifestyle.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

David James basically gave us the Biblical insight into the transgender lifestyle. Today it is not politically correct to speak against that alternative lifestyle of the transgender. But in reality it doesn’t matter if I’m politically correct or not as a Christian I must be Biblically correct.

Let me remind you that the death spiral of humanity which is found in Romans chapter 1 is key to understanding this issue. As well as that passage in Luke chapter 17 where the Lord says as it was in the days of Lot so shall it be in the days that I return to the earth.

The transgender lifestyle that is spreading across the world today is indeed setting the stage as it was in the days of Lot for the return of Jesus Christ.

President Trump says that Jerusalem is Israel's Capital City

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Since 1948 Tel Aviv has been the capital of the Jewish state according to world leaders that say they do not recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish state. At the announcement of the state by then Prime Minister Ben-Gurion Jerusalem immediately became the capital of the Jewish state and that was on May 14, 1948.

However, the truth be known Jerusalem has been the political capital of the Jewish people for over 3,000 years. II Samuel chapter 5 indicates that the Lord gave Jerusalem a Jebusite stronghold to King David at that time 3,000 years ago. After the battle Jerusalem became the political capital of the Jewish people. This is information that you need to know as you try to understand current events in light of Biblical prophecy.

The word Jerusalem is used 764 times in the scripture. It is a key city and a major component in understanding Bible prophecy. In fact, going back to Zechariah he says in chapter 2 that Jerusalem is the apple of his eye. He loves the city of Jerusalem. Now Jerusalem today may not be what you think of as a capital city for the Messiah to come and rule from but remember that’s in the millennial kingdom yet to come during that 1,000-year period of time when Jesus Christ not only builds the Temple. He will refurbish the city of Jerusalem make it instead of 8 1/2 square miles 2,500 square miles and he will lift up that Temple Mount to put a Temple on that sacred piece of real-estate called the Temple Mount which actually is the original site of the Garden of Eden. This is one of the reasons Jesus Christ loves the city of Jerusalem so much why he chose it to dwell among his people forever and this is something that each and everyone of us who are students of Bible prophecy must learn and understand.

God has a plan for the city of Jerusalem. That plan is laid out in his prophetic passages of God’s word and all of those prophecies will be fulfilled. That is an absolute. We need to grasp the fact that Jerusalem will be in the hands of God forever. The announcement by Donald Trump that today Jerusalem is recognized by the United States as the political capitol of the Jewish people is great to hear and is very historic in its nature but God’s word already told us that would be the case.

The Iranian army chief says that the next war will eradicate Israel

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: The Iranian army chief said the next war is going to eradicate Israel. Well now that’s a prophetic scenario but is it reality?

KT: Well it’s a boast and we know that the Iranian’s are quite prone to boasting but there’s an awful lot of grounding to that boast in fact. We know for example the Israeli’s have acknowledged this that Iran has shipped over a hundred thousand possibly as many as a hundred and fifty thousand missiles and rockets to Hezbollah and Lebanon that’s arsenal. Its bigger than Israel has ever really faced I think even in its most dire wars against five Arab armies. I don’t think they’ve faced the kind of missile long slot of that nature.

So, the Iranian’s are not just talking through their hat. They know that they’ve shipped Hezbollah pretty dramatic weaponry and huge quantities. They know also that Hezbollah has been tunneling beneath the Golan Heights that you will recall from our previous discussions that Israel has on a red line with the Russian’s in particular saying we don’t want Iran or Hezbollah anywhere near the Golan Heights that is a red line to us. And so far we thought that the Russian’s had agreed and were pushing Hezbollah and Iran back. That does not appear to be the case. It seems that they’re still tunneling beneath the border and many people I’ve spoken to recently who have just been to Israel and spoken to top Israeli military leaders know that the Israeli defense force is seriously concerned that a future with Hezbollah could begin with a land incursion through these tunnels into northern Israel by Hezbollah forces.

JD: Ken Timmerman with the details about the Iranian army chief’s statement that the next war will eradicate the Jewish state of Israel.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

For years the Iranian’s have been saying that they are going to wipe Israel off the face of the earth. By saying that so often the Iranian leadership is starting to believe what they are talking about. Bible prophecy does say that Iran will be a part of a coalition that will endeavor to try to destroy the Jewish state of Israel, that is found in Ezekiel 38:5 where Persia is modern day Iran.

The alignment of many Islamic states will indeed try to destroy the Jewish state. However, the Bible does tell us that Iran and these other Middle Eastern states will be destroyed themselves, that’s Ezekiel 38:18-39:6. The stage is set for these prophecies to be fulfilled.
