Islamic State is not dead and could be revived very quickly

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: They’re going to make a return, a revival of Islamic state. What do you know?

KT: Jimmy this is exactly what many annalist now are warning about. They’re estimate that there are still between 20,000 - 30,000 Islamic state terrorists in Syria and Iraq. They are not longer organized in the way that they were before. They don’t hold territory; they do not have a capital. But they have gone to ground they return to the state where they are a vast powerful underground network terrorizing people in towns and villages. They don’t come out and engage in open war fair as they had been doing before. They do not occupy territory as they did before but they are there as a latent force. This is very dangerous and it’s going to be difficult for the US Military and our allies to route them out.

JD: Is the Islamic State ready to push for another caliphate? Can they come back that powerful again or not?

KT: That is the question isn’t it? And you have the Islamic State pairing with other groups and moving to other places. They’re now going into Khorasan Province in Afghanistan and there are several thousand of them there. We’ve seen a recent state of terrorist attacks in Afghanistan many of them carried out by Islamic State gorilla forces. They have definitely not given up the notion of establishing an Islamic caliphate. But for the time being they don’t yet have the territory in which to declare it. My guess is that they are seeking a foothold, a solid foothold in Afghanistan and that is where you will see the next emergence of an Islamic State with territory on the ground.

JD: Ken Timmerman with a report that Islamic State has not been defeated and could be revived very quickly.

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

No matter what the politicians may say Islamic State has not been defeated and could become an Islamic power very quickly. Ken’s report reveals that this satanic terrorist organization is preparing to return to its goal of a worldwide caliphate with a caliph. I say that Islamic State is satanic because I John chapter 2 says that anyone or any group who says that Jesus Christ is not the son of the true God who came to earth in living flesh is an antichrist; a satanically energized being the antichrist, Revelation 13:1-3. The truth be known Islamic State has not been defeated and this is evidence for the end time scenario to be played out in the very near future.

The United States is not a Christian nation

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Earlier we were looking to the past and discussing the Christian heritage of our country with Paul Blair. So I’d like for you to consider the present and the future especially with regard to dispensationalism.

DJ: And I think that’s important discussion to have. I would say that we are not necessarily a Christian country but there are certainly Christian underpinnings. But what is interesting is that the early founder were talking about, not the Founding Fathers but going back to the Puritan’s and Pilgrims, they were looking to actually establish a new Jerusalem. So they were not dispensational in their theology even though they had a Christian foundation for the way that they lived and even the way that the country ended up being founded in terms of what we more recently called a Judeo Christian ethnic.

But dispensationalism really didn’t become systemized until John Darby came along the Plymouth brethren in the 1830s it began to be I would say recovered because dispensationalism is as old as the New Testament and in fact as old as the Bible but it was lost over the course over the millennia. John Darby and others who joined with him began to recover it in about the 1830s.

And actually I would say that Christianity in the United States beginning in the late 1800s and on through much of the 20th century was largely dispensational and dispensationalism actually laid the foundation for the breakaway from what happened to schools like Harvard, Princeton, the IV league schools. What happened to them is they departed from the word of God. Men wanted to have a Biblical foundation for church planting, missions, Christian education. And so it was actually it was largely led by dispensationalist who first started the Bible institute movement then they established conservative independent seminaries that were independent for mainline denominations and out of that came the independent Bible church movement and then worldwide missions that were largely fueled by dispensationalism. So, it’s really interesting how this all developed and it’s interesting that we’re talking about this in light of your discussions with Paul Blair. 

JD: David James explaining the statement that America is not a Christian nation and how we should approach our study of the Bible.

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

Many people say America is a Christian nation. I agree with David James, it is not a Christian nation. However, it was established based upon Christian principles. These were Biblical principles from a dispensational approach of interpreting the word of God. That method of interpretation of the prophetic passages helps us to understand God’s plan for the future. That plan at a time that seems to be very quickly approaching.
