The recently passed Congressional Economic Relief bill may be opening the door for a one-world currency

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: They're talking about using the digital dollar as a way to distribute to the US citizens and the small businesses. Talk to me about this digital dollar. How will that operate?

RM: Yeah, Jimmy we've known about this since November 2019. The Federal Reserve has been working to develop a digital currency but we're shocked to hear that the House version of the Congressional Relief Bill Package included paying people with it. So that is our indication that even though it did not make it into the final bill Central Bank digital money is ready to go.

JD: Is this a wave of the future, the digital dollar as you see it?

RM: Essentially the digital dollars is an electronic entry on a bank leaguer. Like paper money it's only backed by the full faith credit of the issuer. The digital dollar could prevent a run on banks and provide a instant entry to a person's bank account and give them credit that can be used through a credit card or Paypal. The infrastructure for digital transaction is called block chain is already in place. Just last week it was used by China in over a hundred cities.

JD: So you're talking about it being international, is that correct?

RM: Yes, yes it is Jimmy.

JD: Well the Bible does call in the revival of the Roman Empire. It has to be very similar to the Old Roman Empire and they had a common currency. Are we saying basically this digital dollar could become that common global currency?

RM: Jimmy the short answer is yes. Last week the Federal Reserve announced they were considering confiscating dollars coming from Asia because of virus germs on the paper currency. So a digital currency would solve that problem. The whole system of paper money could change quickly to global digital world money that could replace the dollar as world currency. According to the report Jimmy the switch could even happen over night.

JD: Ron Morro explaining how the digital dollar could become a one world currency.

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

Ron's report does lay out a scenario that could set the stage for a one world currency. This potential possibility could help set the stage for the prophecies of Daniel and Revelation to be fulfilled. Daniel chapters 2 & 7 calls for a Revived Roman Empire. Chapter 2 the ten toes and chapter 7 the ten horns.
In Revelation 17:12 once again it speaks of the ten horns representing the Revived Roman Empire.

This political power will come about during the Tribulation period because the Old Roman Empire had a one world currency. Once again a political decision setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

It looks like Israeli political leaders have agreed to form a coalition government

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: It looks like Benny Gantz is going to join Prime Minister Netanyahu to form a unity government. Can you believe that and what's the latest on it?

DD: Well Jimmy not only do I believe it but you might remember I was predicting this in early January already on a national emergency government then because of the eminent threat of war with Iran. After Soleimani was killed the Al Quds chief there was cause then for the postponement of the March elections and for Gantz to just join Netanyahu in an emergency government. That didn't happen. We had the elections, still not quite enough as we all know to form a majority government with Netanyahu. So the calls began again for an emergency government this time because of the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the world and very much effecting Israel. Benny Gantz finally vowing to wide spread public pressure for the formation of a real government. Come on guys, there's a crisis out there, we now have our soldiers falling ill from a virus and have our hospitals filled. And so Benny Gantz in the end agreed to that breaking up his Blue & White alliance.

The people's opinions will show are very happy at this development. It looks like Netanyahu will remain Prime Minister for the time being and Gantz will then take over after an unspecified, they're still working out all these details, but an unspecified period of time. Mean while he's been elected speaker of the Knesset, speaker of the Parliament Benny Gantz has. So he has a high position but he will probably come in as Prime Minister later. They're saying he'll soon resign as speaker and take over the defense ministry portfolio but there's some resistance to that. I won't go into all the details. But a bit of a mess but at least it looks like for the next few days Israel will have a government as the coronavirus continues to spread very very rapidly Jimmy in Israel.

JD: David Dolan with the details on the agreement of Israeli political leaders agreeing to form a coalition government.

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

God's plan for leading the nations of this world is in the institution of human government which the Lord actually created, that's Genesis 9:6. God has used human government to direct these nations down through history and will do so even in the times of the end as foretold in Bible prophecy, that's Revelation 17:17.

With the coronavirus crisis in Israel political minds made the correct decision and will form a government which the Lord will use to take the Jewish state into the future.

The coronavirus crisis should not cause divisiveness in the Church but unity in God's purpose for the Church

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: It seems like this present crisis is presenting a lot of difficult challenges. However, would you not say David, it's also providing some unique opportunities for believers in the future?

DJ: Yeah, I really think you're right Jimmy. You know one of the things that I frequently say to people when unexpected things happen is you know this didn't catch the Lord by surprise. Things often catch me by surprise, I didn't see things coming but the Lord certainly did. And that being the case that leads us with a couple of main questions. That would be what would the Lord have me to learn from this, and then what does He want me to do in the midst of this.

You know among the things we always need to learn about the Lord are He is always in control and that He is loving, gracious, and kind. So we know that we can trust Him in every situation even the most difficult ones meaning that there's no reason to be anxious for anything. We can also spend more time in prayer and make our needs known to Him but we always need to do it with thanksgiving as Paul says in Philippians 4.

Then, concerning what we can do. We can learn to be a blessing to others in some very tangible ways. In our churches for example especially for those who are being effected the most which could include not only the elderly but families with children that can't go to school, those who have jobs in jeopardy and others. And you know a lost world can see that we're truly Christ's disciples by our love for one another. Speaking of the lost world, there are a lot of people out there who are hurting and afraid right now. They don't know what to think about how to handle this situation. We can meet the physical and emotional and spiritual needs of unsaved family, friends, co-workers and neighbors. We can have a genuine ministry in their lives and the results of that can be eternal. We need to keep an eternal prospective in mind. 

JD: David James with details on how the church can unite in God's purpose and not be divisive.

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

My conversation with David James I think was a positive approach on how the church can indeed be united in God's purpose for the church in the midst of this coronavirus crisis. I would also say that everything which is happening in our world today seems to be the stage setting for His plan for the end times. What a time for the Rapture to take place.

Remember II Peter 3:9 Jesus says He will keep His promise of the Rapture but at the same time Jesus is not willing that any should perish but all come to know Him for salvation. Please use this time of crisis and fear to lead people to the Lord for salvation and for comfort and peace.

An Israeli Rabbi says that if the Vatican does not return Temple furniture to Jerusalem, the Coronavirus in Rome will intensify

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: In 70 AD when General Titus came into Jerusalem from direction by his father Vespasian who was the Roman Emperor at the time to destroy the city of Jerusalem, devastate the Temple and disperse the Jews to the four corners of the Earth that they took a number of vessels back into Rome with the purpose of being able to take the treasuries of the Temple and rebuild the Roman Empire. In fact in 71 AD the Roman Empire did build that wonderful Colosseum there located in Rome. Is that factual that they did take these implements back into Rome?

WM: Well let's put it this way Jimmy, we do know that the Colosseum was built with a lot of the money and property that was taken after the revolt in Judea. Whether or not the implements or any of the parts of the Temple. I know that many believe it and I know that the Vatican has not been open enough about saying well come on in to our archives. So this remains as a question. I cannot say whether it is wrong or right.

I would think that if anything was found they would have taken it back. It happened with Babylon about 500 years earlier. It happens all over the world. Conquering armies where they plunder and took things away so it's not out of the ordinary. Unfortunately though we do not know because the Vatican as far as I know has not been open completely about it. I have read denials but I can't fully believe them because I don't think there's full proof that they are not there.

JD: Winkie Medad with details behind the Vatican's refusal to return Jewish Temple furniture to the Jews in Jerusalem.

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

Winkie's report is the latest update on the battle by Israel to have them return to the Jewish people the Jewish Temple furniture so that these items can be placed in the next Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. Having visited Rome I can testify that on the Arch of Titus in the Old City of Rome there is engraved on that arch two silver trumpets, the table of showbread, and the Menorah the seven branched candelabra. These Temple implements are evidence that the Vatican at least has these three items in their basement. There are reports of 50 tons of gold and silver brought by Titus back to Rome to be used to rebuild the Roman Empire in 70 AD.

This report is evidence of Bible prophecy being fulfilled.

In the Middle East today there is pestilence and swarms of locusts as in Biblical times

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Very interesting activities going on in the Middle East. You have the Coronavirus pandemic and then there's a report coming out of the horn of Africa. There's a swarm of locusts arriving in the Middle East just in time for the Passover. Now it's a couple of weeks away. Passover April 8 - 16. But boy that swarm of locusts they don't need that in Israel.

DD: Jimmy, it's very Biblical. Let's face it they're talking about a closure just for the next 2 weeks but with the number of cases doubling everyday and of course it's happening elsewhere. Israel took strong steps and that's part of the reason Netanyahu's popularity ratings have gone up. He's been very quick to even with the economic damage to ban tourism and do these other things.

But yes, now we have locusts coming up. So the Passover is going to be very very different. Many of the rabbis who have called for the Jews to go up to the Temple Mount and then in the synagogues around the world and to pray for God's mercy because they do point to several incidents in the Bible where it says that plagues were unleashed by the Lord or at least he allowed them to come. One was when King David of course disobeyed God and launched a census. One of the options God gave him was a plague. A short period of time but a very deadly thing. We know in the Exodus that this occurred as well. So add locusts to the midst and you really have something.

Many are saying this is not just a coincidence that this is happening and has disrupted life so much. But as you said people are falling on their knees. The good news is it's gotten everybody's attention and life has altered and that's all over the world. Hopefully many people will cry out to God and come to God as a result of this. But boy, it's looking very much like the period of Exodus again.

JD: David Dolan with the details from the Middle East on the Coronavirus pandemic and swarms of locusts.

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

Jesus referred to the pandemic in the Tribulation period as pestilence as recorded in Matthew 24:7. In Joel chapter 1 the invasion of locusts is a record of an historic event and the invasion of locusts on the Jewish people in Biblical times. In Joel 2 & 3 the prophet is speaking of enemy armies that will invade Israel in the time of the end. Joel's reference to locusts is used to describe the enemy armies that will invade the Jewish state in the Day of the Lord. And by the way that Day of the Lord starts after the Rapture of the church. This pestilence and the swarms of locusts spoken of by Matthew and Joel refer to the time during the Tribulation period.

An Iranian high ranking official is calling for Iranians to spread the coronavirus in order to bring the Mahdi, the Messiah

Listen to Today's Program Play 

JD: Iran official is calling for a deliberate spread of the Coronavirus worldwide and he said for the purpose of bringing the Mahdi the Islamic Messiah on the scene.

KT: Low and behold comes an Iranian Talisman who encourages Iranians to spread this virus around the world to bring about the Mahdi and the end times. It is in keeping with Shiite eschatology. This particular individual heads a think tank that is sponsored by the Supreme leader. He is saying that the Coronavirus pandemic is the prelude to the emergence of the expected Mahdi.

JD: People don't realize sometimes that the Muslims and in particular Iran have an eschatology. They believe that Mahdi will come up out of Iran itself. But at the same time there are other officials that are warning that the virus will probably kill millions there in the Islamic Republic. This is going to be a real hard time for them as well.

KT: It is going to be a hard time because up until just this past week they were allowing Pilgrims to go to religious shrines in Mashhad and then Qom where they have the particular habit of licking these shrines. It's no coincidence that the pandemic has broken out in both of those towns and in particular Qom where tens of thousands of Iranians have been infected. They could have hundreds of thousands of deaths in the coming months. People are starting to warn about that in Iran, public health officials are starting to warn. They're getting mixed messages from the very top.

JD: Ken Timmerman with his report on the Iranians calling for the Iranian people to spread the Coronavirus in order to bring the Mahdi the Muslim Messiah.

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

Shiite Muslim eschatology believes that a catastrophe for example a pandemic like the Coronavirus will bring the Muslim Messiah, the Mahdi, to power and he will be the leader of a worldwide kingdom the caliphate. Remember that is Islamic eschatology an end time scenario in the Islamic world. It is not the scenario for a true Biblical eschatology.

This pandemic is what Jesus referred to in His Olivet Discourse, that's Matthew 24:7 when He said prior to His second coming there will be pestilence, pandemic disease throughout all of our world. What is happening today is not the pandemic that Jesus spoke about. That will happen in the future Tribulation period.

Christians must obey the laws of man if they do not contradict the laws of God

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Sam, you and your team what are you recommending to these pastors as it relates to their services or how they should continue to minister in their churches?

SR: Jimmy we're first of all saying that this is when the understanding of a Biblical world view in talking and preaching about the Bible in times of prosperity and peace actually becomes a very practical application once we move into a time where we now have government actually passing regulations, laws varying degrees of levels of the civil authority that limit the gathering together of churches.

Pastors across the country are struggling with that as services are having to be redirected because civil government says we don't want 50 or more people together or 100 or more. Now as many cases 10 or more. Where can we go and find the bottom line Biblical principles? And for us that takes us back how has God set up society? Where you have a family. You have civil government authority and you have church authority. We are to submit ourselves to the civil authorities. We do that as long as and up until the point that civil authority crosses the line and tries to confront what God has said for us to do. That's always been the principle through time. So if government says because of the need of being concerned for the lives of people we are asking everyone not, for a temporary period of time that is the key, stay away from each other. Then in fact that being a law of civil government that the church in fact ought to try and observe that. So observe the laws of government to the extent that they do not cross or contradict the laws of God.

JD: Sam Rohrer the host of the Stand in the Gap Today and Radio Television programs explaining how Christians must obey the laws of man as long as these laws do not contradict the laws of God.

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

Sam in consultation with many pastors across America came up with some very practical suggestions for pastors in light of the Coronavirus crisis and what churches need to be doing during these troublesome times. This crisis can also be used to remind all lost people, those without Jesus Christ as their Savior to consider Jesus as their hope for today. What we see happening today is the prophetic scenario for tomorrow in the Tribulation period. All of us must prepare today for tomorrow.

The TV Evangelist Jim Bakker is not only a false teacher, some claim that he is also a criminal

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Today's topic because of claims made on the Jim Bakker television program. Talk to us about that David.

DJ: Well you're right Jimmy and whether could be causing these kinds of problems with this world wide panic or not that's kind of a different question. We can't deny the fact that it is affecting both of our ministries. I know its already affecting trips to Israel for you. I was scheduled to teach in Ukraine in a couple of weeks but it looks like that trip won't happen.

To your question and now we're seeing criminals adding to the problem. And I use that term intentionally. We're seeing criminals like Jim Bakker and others taking advantage of this crisis to line their pockets by scamming, hurting, frightened and unfortunately some gullible people. As far as I can tell Right Wing Watch which is a radical leftist website first broke the story about Jim Bakker using a guest to hawk a supposed cure for the Coronavirus and then that story was picked up by other media outlets. We can get into some more of the details in a few minutes.

The bottom line is this that the New York State Attorney General issued a warning to Bakker and that was followed by a cease and desist order by both the Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Trade Commission to immediately cease making all such claims. And now the Attorney General of Missouri where Bakker's organization is located that Attorney General's office has announced that they have filed a lawsuit against Jim Bakker and Moringside Church Productions Inc. for misrepresentations about the effectiveness of a product called silver solution as a treatment for Covid-19.

JD: David James explaining the headline today with his report of possible criminal activity by the TV Evangelist Jim Bakker.

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

Dave's report is alarming. A report on a TV Evangelist who has already served jail time for criminal activity. That's not to say that Bakker is guilty. The states of New York and Missouri will determine his guilt or innocence. We do know however that he is a false prophet as described by Jesus Christ in His Olivet Discourse, Matthew 24, and the Lords Servant on The Mount, Matthew 7.

Jesus gave a warning of false prophets and false teachers and even false Christ in the last days. As we see the time of the Rapture quickly approaching we see more and more false teaching. Allow God's word to approve all Biblical teachers and these the last days.

The Palestinian Authority TV preacher says that the coronavirus is a weapon of almighty Allah

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: The Palestinian Authority TV preacher is making the statement that the Coronavirus is one of almighty Allah's soldiers. In other words he's saying that this world is facing this epidemic or pandemic with the Coronavirus because Allah is using this. What are your thoughts?

DD: Well I don't know what source he has, but whether it has divided in sanction or not is anybody's opinion really. It's a virus. The politics that come in are sad. But it is spreading very very rapidly to Iran and that's another reason that the Israeli's are taking such measures. All of the Arab Gulf countries now have cases as well.

Iran they're worried basically Jimmy that they will lash out to try to divert attention from what's going on inside. There is concern that Iran may see this as an opportunity to attack Israel, physical attack with the United States preoccupied and with its allies in Europe and elsewhere preoccupied with the crisis at home that they might feel that this is the right time. So the Israeli's remain very vigilant against an actual war while we have this war against the germs coming into the country.

JD: Seems like the Palestinians hate the Jewish people enough they'll use any excuse to go after them. They are saying that Allah is using this. We're not sure that's the case are we David?

DD: First of all you and I know that Allah is not god of the Bible but if you have a pipe line you might hear something on those lines. But it just seems like these sorts of statements are not helpful there's no need to do that. But it does indicate as you said the deep animosity towards Israel that anything that comes along they'll use as sort of a reason to bash Israel and again call for its destruction.

JD: David Dolan with the details behind the Palestinian Authority TV preacher and the statement that he made which was that the Coronavirus is a weapon of Allah the Islamic god.

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

The Palestinian media is going to be used to insight the Palestinian people to kill the Jews. Now the Palestinian Authority TV preacher is saying that the Coronavirus is a weapon of Allah and he is using it to kill the Jewish people.

The Bible speaks of Palestinian hatred for the Jewish people, that's Ezekiel 35. God has said He will have ending nation against the Palestinian people forever, that's Malachi 1. With the Palestinian preacher saying that Allah is using the Coronavirus to kill Jews it is evidence of this hatred by the Palestinians for the Jewish people.

In Syria, Turkey and Russia are reevaluating the next best move for both Russia and Turkey

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: We've been talking about the on going conflict there in Syria at the Turkish-Syrian border. They've agreed to some type of a cease fire there in Idlib, what can you tell us about it?

KT: Well that's right and Erdogan made the pilgrimage to Moscow to workout this agreement. In theory they're conducting joint Russian-Turkish military patrols to insure that the cease fire holds. There have been violations but it does seem to be holding and that's because its in both countries best interests. The Russians don't want an all out shooting war with Turkey and the Turks don't really want to get into a big conflict with Syria. So the cease fire does serve every parties interest for the time.

JD: I would imagine and there was a headline, Can Turkey defeat Russia's army in Syria? The best alternative was a cease fire.

KT: I think you're right about that. But again this cuts both ways. The Russians have their own vulnerabilities in Syria that we don't often pay attention to. For example, they must resupply their troops by sea and those resupply ships have to go through the Bosphorus. The Bosphorus obviously by Istanbul controlled by Turkey.

The second vulnerability the Russian's have is they have a single air base in Syria. Now that could also be the target of either the Turks or Jihadi groups. It hasn't been so far. So the Russians are not invulnerable. They have a couple of thousand troops on the ground. The Turks have about 7,000 but remember Turkey is just next door. So to resupply its troops it just has to drive trucks across the borders; for the Russians it's a lot more complicated.

JD: Ken Timmerman explaining why Russia and Turkey decided on a cease fire in Syria.

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

Ken's report is evidence of how Russia will fulfill the prophecy of Ezekiel found in Ezekiel 38:2. That passage tells of the Gog Magog war. Gog being the personality, Magog being the location Russia and how Russia will lead a coalition of Islamic states in an effort to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth.

The Russian-Turkish conflict in Syria is a precursor for how Russia will take that leadership role. Daniel 11:40 reveals that Syria the other player in Ken's report will make the first move of the coalition to attack the Jewish state. This prophetic stage is being set so that Bible prophecy can be fulfilled.

This is an update on the effects of the coronavirus and the price of crude oil on our economic world

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: I want to talk to you about the Coronavirus and its effect on the Stock Market and also crude oil. But let's go to Coronavirus first. How much of an effect is that having on the Stock Market and the ups and downs that are taking place?

RM: Basically the Coronavirus is fear and uncertainty. Jimmy, there was a game show some years ago where contestants were asked questions that could grow to a million dollars in prize money. The contestants were given three options to find an answer and one was to poll the audience. The audience is much like the Stock Market. It's sometimes 100% right and sometimes it overshoots or undershoots and drops to 95% right. An external shock like the Coronavirus is likely to create overshoots and undershoots. So right now the Coronavirus is just causing some chaos.

JD: Well Ron I do know that the price of crude oil which is basically determined by OPEC which is an association of oil producing countries and basically the major two would be Russia and Saudi Arabia. They're having some problems. Russia and Saudi Arabia really not agreeing on what they should do, produce more oil or cut down on the supply of oil. Is that a big game changer as it relates to the Stock Market as well Ron?

RM: It really is Jimmy. This is an interesting but very dangerous game of who is in charge. Russia rejected OPEC's proposal to cut 1.5 million barrels per day of production. OPEC wanted to raise the oil price by cutting supply. So in response Saudi Arabia not only cut its forward crude to Chinese customers by six or seven dollars. But it also reportedly is looking to raise it's daily crude output by as many as 2 million barrels. The move by the Saudi's is supposed to market, share, grab and allow signal to Moscow that they are in charge.

JD: Ron Morro explaining the effects of the Coronavirus and the price of crude oil on the Stock Markets of the world.

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

Ron's report helps us to see better how the end times scenario of Bible prophecy will come into play. Pestilence which is pandemic disease and a hit on the financial world will put the world in a place for someone to appear with a plan to solve these problems. My study of Bible prophecy indicates to me that person will be the Antichrist. This world is quickly moving into place to accept that world leader. Revelation 13 is the most detailed passage of scripture on how this scenario will unfold. May I suggest you take time to read Revelation 13 and study that passage and compare it to our world's situation today.

Political parties in Israel may break up which could help form an Israeli coalition government

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Actually can you give us the latest on the elections? As of today what's going on?

WM: Well Jimmy for those who are our veterans and faithful listeners they know that you and I have discussed many times the possibility that it would be a break up in some of the parties. We are beginning to see the beginning of that. At the present moment 3 members of Knesset, 2 from the Blue & White faction and one from the United Democratic faction who have indicated that they are not willing to go along with a minority government that is bolstered up or supported from the outside by the Arab joint list. If this holds Jimmy, even if they don't completely vote their parties and go over to the Likud which of course would be the next stage. That dashes Benny Gantz's chances of even setting up a minority government.

JD: But Winkie does that allow him to be any closer to forming a coalition. Are they leaning towards coming to Likud and becoming a part of that 61 members of Knesset they need to select a Prime Minister?

WM: I'd have to say no at the moment that you and I are talking. And I want to make it clear to the listeners so they understand the background of this crisis of political inability to get a coalition set up. The Blue & White party as everyday goes on. I'm now linking up what I just said a few moments ago Jimmy. Netanyahu is being seen to be a magnificent leader in times of crisis. What's happing is that he is greatly increasing his chances of pulling over people onto his side or threatening Blue & White. But if they go to elections again they have no chance. He will completely to use the phrase I once used in America, wipe the floor with them because the people again are very impressed.

JD: Winkie Medad explaining how Israel may form a coalition government by the political parties breaking up and then being able to form a government after the third try in 3 elections.

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

Winkie was able to explain how the people of Israel may be able to form a government. It's not going to be by party partnership but instead by people leaving their political parties and moving ahead on principal. An Israeli state without a government is opening a door for Israel's enemies to enter that vacuum to fill it with terror attacks that could destroy the Jewish state. God's plan of human government is the way into the future. It's God's way into the future.

The State of Alabama has passed an abortion law that has the pro-choice people in an uproar

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: The Alabama State Legislator sent the most restrictive abortion bill in the nation to the Governor’s desk and she signed it into law; talk about it.

DJ: Well as you noted Alabama’s Republican Governor a lady named Kay Ivey did sign into law the nation’s strictest abortion ban to date. It was passed by the Republican lead Senate 25 to 6 so that’s a very strong passage by the Senate.

This new law follows on the hills of a heartbeat bill that was passed in Georgia just last week. And that law prohibits abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected which is usually around 6 weeks into a pregnancy. Now Alabama’s new law makes it a felony to preform an abortion in nearly all cases. The law will go into affect in 6 months unless it’s blocked by legal challenges which it most certainly will be. It could be tied up in the courts for years.

JD: Is this a heartbeat bill or something more? Most abortion bills have exemptions for rape and incest. What exemptions are there in this Alabama bill?

DJ: First of all Alabama’s bill is more restrictive then a heartbeat bill. The current laws in effect in both Georgia and Alabama outlaw abortion after 20 weeks and that before these recent bills were introduced. Heartbeat bills generally take that time frame down to 6 weeks but Alabama’s new law would make it illegal to preform abortions at any stage in the pregnancy with only three explicit exceptions and these exceptions do not include cases of rape or incest. What they do include if the baby had some type of lethal anomaly meaning that it will definitely die or if there’s a serious health risk to the mother. 

Also it’s more strict with regard to penalties for doctors who preform abortions. The Alabama bill makes it a felony punishable from 10-99 years or even life in prison for those doctors involved in preforming abortions. Even though this would in affect make abortion essentially a murder crime women seeking abortions under this law would not face that charge. It’s strictly for the abortion providers.

JD: David James with a look at the Alabama abortion law and the uproar caused by its contents.

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

Though the law of the land in America allows for most types of abortion at any time in the life of the unborn this law actually does contradict the law of God found in the Bible. Jeremiah 1:5 states that life does not begin at birth even at the time of conception. But life begins in the mind of God. Psalm 1:39 reveals that same principle. The Lord does not allow for murder, Exodus 20:13. These verses are God’s absolute word. We report, you decide.

An Iranian leader says that the Coronavirus is a Chinese biological weapon of mass destruction

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Soleimani of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard core is saying that the Chinese Coronavirus is actually biological warfare. What do we know about this?

KT: It's a bizarre statement. It's a very bizarre statement especially because Iran desperately needs China as an ally. They need China to continue to buy Iranian oil on the black market and they need Chinese technology. So for General Soleimani who is the new head of the IRGC the Islamic Revolutionary Guard's Core to call Coronavirus a biological weapon when everybody knows that its come from China is something I think very strange and very bizarre. It shows that this virus has really hit the Iranian regime much harder than people realize.

The Deputy Health Minister was on National Television earlier this week saying they had everything under control and he was coughing on the program and the next day he was diagnosed with the Coronavirus. You have a top aide to the Ayatollah, a guy name Mirmohammadi who died this past week from the Coronavirus. It is far more lethal in Iran than any place else in the world. So what we don't know is that it would appear that there are many many more cases of Coronavirus in Iran and it has even senior people like General Soleimani very worried.

JD: Ken Timmerman explaining why the Coronavirus is not a Chinese biological weapon of mass destruction.

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

General Soleimani's statement that the Chinese Coronavirus is a biological weapon of mass destruction does not seem to be true according to the reasoning of Ken Timmerman in his report. However it is real. This pandemic disease is a game changer in Iran and may well be the same thing around the world in the near future.

Jesus Christ in the Olivet Discourse mentioned pestilence, that's Matthew 24:7. That word pestilence mean infectious disease happening on a pandemic scale. As the Coronavirus continues to spread from nation to nation and town to town we must realize that Jesus could have very well meant this time in history that he was referring to. Iran's pandemic of the Coronavirus in this Islamic country should alert the world where we are in God's prophetic scenario for the future.

The historic third elections may lead to a fourth Israeli election in one year

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Winkie, what do you know about the results from this recent election and what's going to happen in the future?

WM: Well Jimmy as far as I can read the results and understand the political divisions we have not yet reached that magic number of 61 not even 60. Mr. Netanyahu pulled out a tremendous campaign victory for himself and pulled it up to 36 seats for his party where as his competitors the Blue & White party came up 3 less. So that was a resounding defeat of the party. And Jimmy I must remind you and our listeners that party really doesn't have much of a platform except we don't want BB. It's not that they haven't said anything but obviously to everybody else its just not BB is their line.

The Arab party has improved itself to 15. And again our Russian friend Mr. Avigdor Lieberman has managed to hold on to 7 seats and again he becomes what we call in Hebrew the edge of the scales. He's the one who can award this way or that way. Even with his 7 seats the best they can do is block Mr. Netanyahu. He can join Netanyahu and give them a government but he doesn't like Netanyahu.

So I have to say that we're called into another daring prosperous of political pandemonium. Going to elections for a fourth time is really not in the books but as we say in Israel never say never. Everybody knew exactly Netanyahu's legal problems and they still gave them a resounding uplift in fact. So obviously the people said until the guy is proven guilty in court we don't care we want him. But the parties are saying no we don't like him. Therefore as Netanyahu was trying to portray it you're portraying the popular confidence that most of the people voted for the block that wants Netanyahu at its head.

JD: Winkie Medad telling us that Israel may go to a fourth election in one year.

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

There is so much hatred among the political leaders of Israel that they will not work together to form a coalition government in the Jewish state. This actually is a slap in the face of God who formed human government and uses human government to direct nations in our world to do the will of God for the future. That is a plan that the Lord has used for some 4,500 years and will continue to do so in the future, that's Revelation 17:17.

If the Jewish Holy day of Purim had not happened, there would have been no Jesus

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: We're talking about Purim. I want to remind everybody this is not one of the seven feast found in Leviticus 23 but this is a different feast. Purim as recorded in the book of Esther is a very special holy day for the Jewish people. You know that book of Esther Steve is very very unique. Share from a Jewish background what's unique about Esther.

SH: The unique part of the book of Esther and one to me that actually makes it very powerful is the fact that God's name is not mentioned even once in the book nor is it ever mentioned that is the book in the New Testament. Yet I would submit to you that it is a very important book because it speaks of the providence of God.

The book of Esther is one that depicts what I call a one minute to midnight moment for the particular person. In this book we have Esther who is a cousin to Mordecai. Haman says there's a certain people to King Ahasuerus they are unique and we have to get rid of them because they are no good for you. What was Esther going to do? That was a one minute to midnight moment. Purim is really a celebration of the saving of God even though His name wasn't even mentioned. It's a marvelous story Jimmy.

If Purim didn't happen, in other word if Haman was successful you and I know very well the Lord Jesus would have never been born because Haman would have succeeded and wiped out all the Jews and the seeds that God promised back in Genesis 3 would not have been born. So this particular feast day or holiday for the Jewish people though God's name wasn't mentioned His name was at stake. You and I know there's victory.

JD: Steve Herzig telling us the details of the Jewish holy day of Purim and why Purim had to happen so that Jesus could come to this world.

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

The history of Purim in the Old Testament book of Esther is key to why this Jewish holy day is a time of remembrance on how a Jewish lady who was married to a Gentile king for such a time as that some 2,500 years ago was able to save the Jewish people from total annihilation. Though Esther feared for her life she decided if I perish I perish. And that attitude saved the Jewish nation so that Jesus Christ could come to be the Messiah of the Jewish people and their King forever, which is God's plan that if found in Bible prophecy.

Russia, "Peacemaker or War monger"

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Hamas has had a relationship with Russia in the past. It looks like they're trying to continue to develop that relationship.

DD: Well yes and we talked about Vladimir Putin and his drive to make Russia a great Middle Eastern power again as it once was under the Soviet Union. They've been building their ties with the Saudi's and with others in the area and with Egypt again, and with the Palestinians. So they're cozying the Palestinians are back up to the Russians but not just the radical groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Of course we know scripturally that Russia will be a major player in the end days in the region and so it's developing.

JD: You brought up the fact that Russia, that would be Magog found there in Ezekiel 38, is going to be the leader of coalition of Islamic states trying to destroy the state of Israel. Meanwhile the Palestinians will be a part of that plan and want Vladimir Putin to lead the peace process. That's ironic. They're going to be the leader to destroy Israel. How in the world could Vladimir Putin play a role as a peace maker?

DD: Yes it is ironic to say the least. All of the pieces though of that alliance are not in place things are not yet there. But we do see the trends and you know where as 10 years ago Russia was basically out of the region and its influence had weighed considerably. It had more or less closed down its naval base in Syria and its air base there near the coast and now they're all back and thriving. They're taking over more land and setting up more bases. And as we know they even took over some of the evacuated US bases in northern Syria a few months ago. So they're back on a role and it's going to continue I'm sure.

JD: David Dolan with details on Russia in the Middle East, peacemaker or war monger.

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

David Dolan laid out the potential leadership role for Russia in the future, peacemaker or war monger. The Palestinians want Russia and President Putin to lead the peace process in the Middle East. However the ancient Jewish prophets pre-wrote history in the prophetic books. Russia will be the war monger according to Ezekiel 38. That passage mentions Magog which is modern day Russia who will lead a coalition of Islamic states to destroy the Jewish state of Israel. This is a prophecy that actually was pre-written history. Combined Ezekiel 38 with Daniel 11 and Psalm 83 and you can see the partners with Russia and led by Russia who want to remove Israel from the Middle East that scenario is at the point of being fulfilled.

Are signs, wonders, and miracles for today?

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Another point made by our listener David is one that we hear all the time when either you or myself suggest that the sign gifts have ceased. Here's the statement, Jesus the same yesterday, today, and forever. Now that's quoting Hebrews 13:8. And with the idea that if this was happening in the first century then it must be happening today.

DJ: Well first of all we know from John 1:3 and Colossians 1:16 and other passages that Jesus is the creator which means we can't start this discussion in Acts chapter 2. We must go back to Genesis chapter 1. So while the Lord doesn't change the way He does things does change as He carries out His plan in history. This can be seen by the fact that the Lord started giving tongues and other sign gifts of the spirit just 2,000 years ago after over 4,000 years of history had already past.

If we go back to the beginning of history there's a clear pattern that emerges concerning when and why the Lord intervenes with what I call verse of Revelation and signs and wonders. We find that after long period with little or no revelation and even fewer miracles profits arose and signs and wonders happened and they were often connected with judgement against wickedness and unbelief. This happened with the Flood, the Tower of Babel, the Exodus, Elijah and Elisha and it will happen again in the future with the judgments of the Tribulation period after the Rapture.

Also Bible teachers often call the time between the testaments from Malachi to John the Baptist the era of silence and the reason is there's no record of revelation or miracles during that time. So if the Lord has established this pattern concerning His work and history then the question is is it possible or even likely that we're living in such a time in history and I would suggest that it is.

JD: David James, Bible in hand with some Biblical thoughts about signs, wonders, and miracles for today.

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

Let me remind you what Jesus said in the Olivet Discourse, Matthew 24. In verse 24 Jesus said that signs and wonders would be used by false prophets and false Christ to deceive the world in the last days. The Apostle John who wrote the book of Revelation said in chapter 13 that the Devil, Antichrist, and the false prophet, the satanic trinity will also be able to do signs, wonders, and miracles. You'll want to check out Revelation 16:13-15 for that same type of Satanic activity as well.

God's word the Bible warns us of deceptive signs and wonders in the last days.

The world financial situation is key to the end times scenario that is found in Bible prophecy

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: The stock market has lost about 2,000 points. Explain it to a layman how that does take place.

RM: Mostly what we're seeing especially this past week is uncertainty and fear. And those are two things the market always reacts rather violently to. This stock market is seeing three 1,000 points in the past few days. So there's definitely people on edge.

JD: What about the Coronavirus what part is it playing in this economic situation not only here in America but actually across the world?

RM: There are several market annalist that I follow that are starting to think there's more than just a virus going on here. One particular annalist who said that he believed that the market is looking at a 50% chance of the Socialist coming into the Democratic nomination which is causing a lot of fear on top of the virus.

JD: And what about China's economic power? Since they're the major supply line is that going to have an effect on the economies of the world?

RM: It will. You know China is a major manufacture of everything from clothing to microchip to prescription drugs. A disruption in that supply chain will cause corporate earning to drop; the future earnings will be effected. The big thing to watch here is the Federal Reserve. Another thing to watch is that the stock market often prices in worse case scenarios. At some point will be over sold and rallies can happen at a time and often when people least expect them. The most important thing Jimmy is that a diversified balanced portfolio made of quality stocks-bonds and alternative investments will protect investors. You know I would like to borrow from the book of Ester and say for such a time is this.

JD: That's R.C. Morro a new broadcaster partner for us here on Prophecy Today with details on how the world's economic situation is key to the understanding of God's plan for the future.

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

R.C. said that the falls in the US stock market are driven by fear. And then he also mentioned that the fear may be of the Coronavirus. That may well be the case but remember that though the Coronavirus is dangerous we've had over 50,000 deaths here in America due to the Flu this last year.

I actually believe that the financial situation in this world today is a precursor to the prophetic truth of the appearance of Antichrist who will lead a one world economic, political, governmental system in Babylon. And I mean literal Babylon, that's foretold in Revelation 18 and it will come to pass.

The Trump Peace Plan could take the Temple Mount from the Moslems and give it to the Jews

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: I'm hearing that there's a possibility the plan could actually take the Temple Mount away from the Moslems and give it to the Jews. In other words they're going to transfer the site to Israeli sovereignty, remove the Jordanian custodial responsibilities and end the ban on non-Moslem prayers. This could be a real change as it relates to the Temple Mount.

DD: Well it could Jimmy but again these plans are what the Peace Plan would allow eventually are just that they're just proposals and plans. We certainly know the Arab world, the Moslem world totally rejects any concept like that. And in fact Thursday we had 8 European Ambassadors meet with Israeli officials in Jerusalem to condemn the plan basically and to warn Israeli leaders not to annex any territory and particularly not to build the new neighborhood that we talked about last week south of Jerusalem near Har Homa. They're opposing that so what would they say to the Temple Mount it being transferred to full Israeli control. It would create a huge upheaval there's no question about it. It can't in my opinion Jimmy ever happen as part of any peace deal.

It will never be agreed to by the Muslim world never at all. It would only happen in my estimation in the midst of a war forced upon Israel and of course that's as great of a reality probably a greater possibility. In fact a probability as opposed to that we'll get a final piece of accord that will give Israel what it really really wants and that is full total sovereign control over all of Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria. A lot of Israeli's want that and the government does but you can't just declare that without there being a huge backlash.

JD: David Dolan with the details on how the Trump Peace Plan could take the Temple Mount from the Moslems and give it to the Jewish people.

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

The Trump Peace Plan could indeed give Israel sovereignty over the Temple Mount and take custodial responsibilities away from the nation of Jordan. In fact if prayer rights on the Temple Mount were given to all faiths Islam, Judaism and Christianity that move would actually give Temple Mount control to the Jewish people. However as David said that would start a religious war at this sacred piece of real estate. That scenario is prophetic and will happen according to Zechariah 6:12 and 12:2. Temple Mount control is key to the end of times scenario.

Russia has moved their warships to the Syrian Coast to deal with Turkey

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Ken it looks like in Syria and in fact Russia has just sent two of their warships with cruise missiles there into the coast of Syria. What is going on?

KT: Well Jimmy first of all I've got to really thank you for the coverage that you give to this issue. We don't hear that much about it in the national media in the United States. You are filling that gap. This was just Friday the Russians have sent one of their newest most powerful warships the Frigate Admiral Makarov off the coast of Syria. It's equipped as you mentioned with cruise missiles. These are missiles that can hit targets on the ground as they're ground attack cruise missiles giving them a deadly strike and a very accurate strike capability.

The reason the Russians have done this is to warn President Erdogan of Turkey to back off in his attack in Idlib Province in the northern part of Syria. The Syrians are still claiming as their own and guess what it happens to be part of Syria it's not part of Turkey. There are thousand of Turkish troops now inside Syria. Erdogan has moved in his Jihadi groups some of the Jihadi terrorist groups. He claims he's only moving in the so called moderate ones. But I've got to tell you Jimmy try to find the difference between the moderate terrorist and the really radical terrorist. It might just depend what side of bed they get up on the day or who they're looking at across from them.

Russia's position is simply this, they say Syria for all of this and for all the Civil war all these years since 2012 of Civil war is still a sovereign nation and they have the right under the UN charter to defend their territory. And that's what the Syrian army is now doing with help from Russia. They're moving up towards Idlib where the Turks are ensconced. Erdogan has had gotten the surprise of his life with the past couple of weeks to find that the Russians are backing Syria and not him.

JD: Ken Timmerman with details on why Russia moved its warships to Syria to deal with Turkey.

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

Ken's report is information that the main stream media is not covering. However it is key for the understanding of the prophetic scenario that is found in Bible prophecy. The three nations mentioned Syria, Russia and Turkey are part of a coalition of nations that align themselves to destroy the Jewish state, that's Ezekiel 38 and Daniel 11. Though in conflict today they will form a coalition in the last days and that will be done to fulfill the afore mentioned prophetic passages. God's word is absolute and it will be fulfilled.

Israeli's go to elections for the third time in one year

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: And it's going to be the third time people try to get together and vote for members of the Knesset so they can form a coalition government. I mean is that what the Constitution calls for or is this just a freak of nature?

WM: Well Jimmy you hit on one of the main problems. We don't have a Constitution in this country. We have a set of basic laws and one of them of course is elections. Elections in Israel is a parliamentary system. In other words you vote for the parties and whoever is able to manage a 61 seat majority out of the 120 seats in the Knesset will then gain the confidence of those 61 majority and become Prime Minister.

The past two elections Jimmy were able to gain that 61 threshold mainly because we have this one party led by Avigdor Lieberman who refuses to join either block. The trends of the last couple of days are bringing some surprises.

JD: Well talk to us about those trends. As of today where do we stand?

WM: The Likud has between one and two seats advantage over Blue and White. That is because I'm going to guess three issues. One, Mr. Netanyahu himself for the past two weeks has been on the road. Every night he has been pumping up the enthusiasm I guess you want to call it and he's running a tough field campaign out there.

Secondly, people are getting tired. They don't want to go to elections a fourth time I'm guessing so they're beginning to come down on Likud's side because of the obvious advantages. Mr. Netanyahu is a friend of President Trump. He's opened up diplomatic vistas all around the world. The economy is booming. Security is relatively speaking for the past 10 years is excellent etc etc.

The third element is people are beginning to leave Lieberman's party. The polls are showing a drop of at least one going on to two seats. And I know Netanyahu, BB as we call him has been targeting the Russians in Russian language electioneering. It may be working.

JD: Winkie Medad with the details on the third Israeli elections in one year.

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

Modern day human government was brought into existence by the Lord as recorded in Genesis 9:6. Today and into the future the Lord will use human government to direct this world the way He wants it to go. Revelation 17:17 says that the Lord will put into the hearts and minds of political world leaders the desire to make political decisions in line with the Lords will and that will happen until His will is accomplished.
