Russia and Saudi Arabia are trying to flood the world with oil

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: I want to ask Ron is Russia and Saudi Arabia both trying to flood the market and one or the other come out on top of this whole struggle or battle?

RM: It's no secret that the growth of US shell oil has been a thorn in the sides of both Saudi Arabia and Russia. They both have seen their market shares erode as the shell boom made the US the worlds largest crude oil producer. OPEC and Russia finally agreed to production cuts on April 10th. You know Jimmy oil wells can't simply be turned off and on like tap water. It can take weeks to shut down one. It costs lots of money to shut one down and even more money to start them up again and there's a good chance the well can fail.

JD: Is this Russia trying to ultimately destroy US economy with the oil fight that's going on?

RM: Both Russia and Saudi Arabia would like to put an end to the oil shell miracle because the strangle hold on the world oil market. There's a concerned effort there by both to get rid of the shell problem as they see it.

On Tuesday President Trump announced, "we will never let the great US oil and gas industry down". Sadly that may make the situation worse by keeping all the shell oil producers in operation means they'll produce more oil and possibly exacerbate the glut and drive prices even lower.

JD: That's how it would hurt the United States and I understand all of your reasoning there, but this will also have an impact on Middle East oil producing companies as well. Could it put them into bankruptcy, which would maybe motivate them to get quicker into action against the Jewish state of Israel since they won't have the money to pay for their military operation?

RM: You know the continued disruption and supply and demand will affect the companies of every oil producing nation and especially Iran since exports are its main economic life line. You know maybe this is why there are so many headlines of Iranian aggression this past week that caused a rise in the oil price from below 0 to $17 per barrel on Friday. So we're seeing a lot of geo political moves out there.

JD: Ron Morro with the details on how Russia and Saudi Arabia are endeavoring to drive the price of oil down so they can gain leadership in our world today.

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

Ron's report reveals how Russia could push the United States possibly into bankruptcy and then use its power position to lead the Middle Eastern nations into a coalition of Arab and Islamic states who will endeavor to destroy the Jewish state of Israel. This end time scenario was foretold in Ezekiel 38, Psalm 83, and Daniel 11.

Russia and Saudi Arabia flooding the oil market is indeed setting the stage for these prophecies to be fulfilled.

The modern day State of Israel is 72 years old

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Just talk to me about the uniqueness of this reality of the Jewish state of Israel being a nation among the nations once again.

DD: Well Jimmy that's a great topic, one I love to speak about. You know as well as I do that pretty much every prophet in the Bible certainly most of them spoke about the Jews returning to their land after being exiled after being punished by God. That's in Ezekiel, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Zechariah, on and on. Prophesied by Moses actually first. But the Jews would be scattered from their land due to sin and then in the end times would be re-gathered actually twice re-gathered Isaiah says and that has happened. First of course after the Babylonian-Syrian dispersions. The Jews came back and rebuilt the Temple. We have that in Ezra and the Nehemiah. Then of course the Romans a few centuries later came in and destroyed the city and the Temple and scattered the Jews once again. This time as the prophet said to the literal four corners of the Earth. Jews in New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa and the farthest reaches South America and North America from Israel.

As you said about 100 years ago the Jews started to return in significant numbers. Just over 70 years ago in 1948 the state of Israel declared after of course the horrendous Holocaust of World War II and they're back. There's over 8 million Jews living there now. More of them were killed in the Holocaust and they are surrounded enemies but they are strong. They have a strong military. And of course they remember on Memorial Day the fallen soldiers. Over 20,000 soldiers have fallen in wars and in terror attacks over the years but they remember them. And then switch on Wednesday evening at sundown to celebrations of the fact that there is a Jewish state born through the blood of those soldiers and others. A strong state that stands tall in the world despite a lot of opposition to it.

JD: David Dolan with the details on the 72nd Birthday of the modern day state of Israel.

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

Dave's reporting on the Independence Day for the Jewish state of Israel is not only news worthy but it is the announcement of fulfilled prophecy in our day. May 14, 1948 marked the announcement by David Ben-Gurion of the Jewish state in modern day times. This prophetic event was foretold in Ezekiel 37. The re-gathering of the Jewish people and the restoration of a Jewish state that would be verses 7 & 8. Ezekiel 34 confirms that prophecy some 18 times. God's prophetic word is absolute and has and will be fulfilled.

President Trump tells the United States Navy to destroy the Iranian "fast attack boats"

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: A little bit of saber rattling going on in the Persian Gulf and because of that President Trump gave a direct order to the United State Navy destroy Iranian ships if they harass the United States there in the Persian Gulf.

KT: Well its a pretty interesting situation. The Navy sailors took video of this recent encounter with something like a dozen Iranian fast attack boats. These are big boats and they have a 50 caliber machine gun mounted on the bow. So they are not just out there cruising in the sunshine in the Persian Gulf or the Strait of Hormuz. They came within about ten yards off the bow of one of our ships. I mean ten yards thats a first down, right? We were a first down away from one of our ships in the Persian Gulf.

The reason this is so dangerous Jimmy is because the Iranians are practicing what they call a swarming attack where they will circle our ships with 10 to 15 or 20 of these fast attack boats. We'll think they're just playing and think they're just thumbing their nose at us and then all of a sudden the last one peels off loaded with explosives and runs into the ship. That's what our Navy is really worried about. These swarming attacks because they are so close off the bows of our ships could really be a warm up run if you wish for an actual attack with a boat laid with explosives.

JD: The Iranians responding to the order by President Trump. Iran said that US war ships are going to be destroyed if they mess with the Iranians.

KT: Well they can take one of our ships for sure. They can do it but just watch out what happens afterwards.

JD: Ken Timmerman with the details behind the Trump order to the United States Navy to destroy the Iranian fast attack boats.

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

Ken's report revealed a possible scenario for the Iranian fast attack boats in the Persian Gulf that are harassing the United States Navy ships. This American action is evidence that the Iranians are fearless in their military actions against any of their enemies and the United States must stop this aggressive Iranian military action.

Again let me remind you why we report this type of Iranian military action. Remember Iran referred to as Persia in Ezekiel 38:5 Iran is a key player in the end times. Iran believes that if they wipe out America, the big satan, then they have a clear shot at the little satan, that's Israel. Ezekiel 38 is the absolute prophecy for telling this end of time scenario that will indeed come to pass.

Even though the Jews say on an annual basis, "Never Again", there will be another Holocaust

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: I understand from my study of history that the first Holocaust Remembrance Day was December in 1949. Why was this special day put in place back then?

WM: Over 200,000 survivors what we call in a Biblical sense the remnant of Israel that survived the camps and the Holocaust had come to Israel. Many of them were broken spiritually and physically. After two or three years it became apparent to many people that the country should find some way to make this an established event. They called it in Hebrew the Day of Heroism and Holocaust. We put together the two elements and so the country thought, don't forget Jimmy, Jews have a very long memory.

Most of our holidays are built in memory of events that happened 3,000 years ago. It's not too difficult today we have to remember what happened between 1933 and 1945 when the Nazi's came to power and then of course the Holocaust and the crematory itself. The wise people at the helm of the government said let us have a day in which we honor and recall and memorialize what happened during that time.

JD: However Winkie with the possibility of the enemy surrounding the Jewish state of Israel today, can you really say never again? And as the Psalmist said, Psalm 83:4, to try to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth another time.

WM: We take in Israel very seriously the threats that either come from Iran, Hezbollah or other nations that think it is their right to do us harm. As a state with its own military despite the threats any talk of a Holocaust or a major conflagration of this stature would not be probable. Any talk of a second Holocaust is not on the agenda.

JD: Winkie Medad explaining why the Jews on an annual bases say never again.

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

It is sad for me to tell my Jewish friends that in their future they will face a second Holocaust. That Holocaust will be worse than the first one during World War II. The ancient Jewish prophet Zechariah wrote in Zechariah 13:8 that during a time of Jacob's trouble there will be two out of every three Jews killed. That will be from the present population which is 14.7 million Jews. That number killed in this next Jewish Holocaust will be nine million, not six million killed under Hitler. God's word is absolute. The prophecy of Zechariah will be fulfilled.

With the corona virus pandemic there are those who would like to see the Rapture happen today

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: We're now in the third month of the coronavirus pandemic and about a month into a shutdown for much of the country. David, you and I have both been teaching that the Rapture could happen at any moment. We've been doing that since we basically been in ministry. And to be honest I think there are many more that really want everything that's happening today be the time when that Rapture is going to take place. I still believe that and I'm sure you do as well that the Rapture could happen at any moment. But things could actually get a lot worse before that happens and we still have a lot of work to do before it happens as well don't we?

DJ: Yes we do. Back when I was saved in the 1980s there was sort of a popular idea in evangelical circles that believers would be raptured out of here before things got too bad. That actually became something that we were attacked for by those who don't hold to a pre-Trib Rapture. We were accused of having an escapist mentality and you know maybe to some degree they were right. I think its sort of an American thing because we've been sheltered from much of the persecution that's happened and continues to happen in many parts of the world. 

As you said I still firmly believe the Rapture could happen at any moment. I would also caution that things could get far worse than anything the world has ever seen before the Rapture happens including here in this country. We as believers have been promised to be spared from experiencing the wrath of God during the Tribulation, but we know from history and even daily headlines just how evil man can be especially when inspired by demonic forces.

Last week we talked about the hope we have in Christ because of His resurrection and that includes His return. Believers alone we have the message of good news of forgiven sin and eternal life and we must continue proclaiming this message until we hear that trumpet sound that you so often talk about. We all have family, friends, neighbors and colleagues whom we don't want to see left behind.

JD: David James, Bible in hand explaining the headline, people wanting the Rapture to happen today.

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

David and I both believe that the Rapture could happen today and in fact at any time. We must remember however that Jesus said in II Peter 3:9 that He is not slacked concerning His promise of the Rapture but He told us in that same verse He is not willing that any should perish but all come to know Him as Savior before the Rapture does take place.

In II Peter 3:12 Jesus says that we can hasten the Rapture by leading lost people to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. As we do that the Rapture will take place sooner rather than later.

Major faults have been found in the biological laboratories in Wuhan, China

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Did China start the coronavirus pandemic?

BM: Well certainly it would appear. In Wuhan there was a neurology lab that perhaps was doing experiments to try to develop either a vaccine or some detection mechanisms or therapies. The evidence at this point suggest that it was some how inadvertently released and as a result spread throughout Wuhan and the Chinese government in Beijing failed to notify the rest of the world in time and it spread as it has across the world.

JD: They did keep this news from the rest of the world once they realized what had happen.

BM: It would appear to be that way Jimmy. The early cases were discovered in November of 2019. So this is a very disturbing development and one that demonstrates that the communist Chinese will do whatever to foster their development economically and militarily into the future.

JD: Was this a planned decision by the leadership of communist China so that they could become number one militarily and economically?

BM: It's a bit premature to come to that conclusion, but I know the President has launched an investigation that will kind of piece all of this together. Unfortunately the World Health Organization failed to do its job. And of course for years we have been trying to send scientists and did in some cases to Wuhan to look at their neurology lab there to see if it was up to snuff. Our conclusions based on the variety of cables that Secretary of State Pompeo has released indicates that they found a major fault in their laboratories and that may in fact be the reason this was accidentally or otherwise released.

JD: Colonel Bob Maginnis with the details on the investigation of whether the coronavirus originated in a bio lab in Wuhan China.

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

This report is not conclusive that the coronavirus pandemic did have its origins in a bio lab in Wuhan China. What is absolute is that China will be a major player in the end of times scenario that is found in the Bible.

The kings of the east referred to in Revelation 16:12 will include the most populated nation in the world red China. China will be in partnership with the antichrist, Revelation 18, in a one world economy. The results of the coronavirus pandemic are actually setting the stage for that prophecy to be fulfilled.

After 17 months and 3 Israeli elections, they now have a unity government

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: It looks like they have formed an Israeli government. What can you tell us about it? What's the deal?

WM: What happened now was that Mr. Gantz who's head of the Blue & White decided to join up with Mr. Netanyahu and make a I guess you can call it a national emergency government. But the situation is as I speak to you that a coalition agreement has been signed. There's still about two weeks of negotiations until there's presented before the Knesset in order to gain a 61 member majority. So its something to be optimistic about.

JD: Is there any possibility in these next couple of weeks that this thing could fall apart?

WM: Well the only thing at the present moment that could do that, I just want to make a point, that Mr. Gantz basically has crossed his rubicon here. He can't go back. In other words if he's dissatisfied with the rate that if something happens he can't go back to his own party. So he's out in the political world in this and no one wants to go to elections again so it would be a very difficult situation.

Then Mr. Netanyahu being under a charge sheet of three different criminal charges should not have the right to become a Prime Minister. The law doesn't say that; actually it says just the opposite. That actually seem to hold up some of that talks because Mr. Netanyahu wanted to make sure that he would be able to serve the first year and a half of the rotation between him and Mr. Gantz as Prime Minister.

JD: Winkie Medad on the details of an emergency unity government now in place in Israel.

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

Even as outside elements of the Jewish state try to stop Prime Minister Netanyahu from serving the first half of the agreed to government the basic law of Israel says that cannot happen. This agreement is a witness to God's plan for human government and God's method of directing human government into the future.

God's creation of human government has prevailed for 4,500 years and will be his mode of operation today and into the future. Genesis 9:6 is the record of God's establishment of human government and Revelation 17:17 reveals His plan to use human government to direct the future as well. God's plan also includes who serves in the leadership of human government to direct His plan, that's Romans 13:1. Israel's newly formed government is evidence of that truth.

The coronavirus crisis may change the Israeli observance of Holocaust Remembrance Day, Memorial Day and Israel's Independence Day

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Holocaust Remembrance Day upcoming this week. They're not going to have the open activities normally they do there at Yad Vashem the Holocaust Memorial location. They've already pre-tapped them. They're going to put them on television. This is a unique way of doing it but they still want to remember Holocaust Remembrance Day.

DD: Well and Jimmy it is an annual event that is mostly televised. There's always a state ceremony and that has various guest and that sort of thing and that's televised every year. So that's how it normally functions. But they're a little more concerned a little further on this month of course we have Independence Day coming right after the Fallen Soldiers Remembrance Day.

Of course Holocaust for the victims of the World War II Nazi Holocaust and then the next week for all of the fallen soldiers, and then immediately followed by Independence Day. Well just as in the States that's normally a day when families go out into the parks. How to change that custom this year is going to be a real challenge. Do they just try to forbid all of these gatherings or is that just too much? They're asking around and checking.

JD: These special holy days, and they're not dictated by the Bible to be observed by the Jewish people. These are special times when the Jews want to remember. And of course Holocaust Remembrance Day they want to remember never again will they allow that to happen. So these are special occasions they're not going to quit thinking about this. They want to keep it that up most in everybody's mind. They don't want it to ever happen again do they?

DD: They don't Jimmy but as you suggest they're not really religious in nature so the synagogues are not normally filled with people. There's not big groups gathering to pray like there is at Passover and the other holy days; so that's good. There's a reason they call it community spread you get a bunch of people together that don't normally hang together and that virus goes real fast or so says the experts.

JD: David Dolan with the details on why Israeli's may observe national holidays different this year however they will not forget them.

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

Jews in Israel stop to honor certain days annually. They do this because of the significance of these special days in the life of the Jewish state of Israel. They observe Holocaust Remembrance Day to be able to say never again will they allow such a Holocaust to take place. Memorial Day honors all of the fallen soldiers that have died during the wars of the modern day state of Israel. Independence Day this year marks the 72nd birthday of the Jewish state. These dates all mark a fulfillment of Bible prophecy.

China is hiding its biological warfare program through deception and propaganda

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: I've read a report recently that China has been actively involved in promoting biological warfare for over 20 years. Now if that be the case I'm concerned even much more so about the reports coming. China has been very very shady in what they have been doing to say the least.

KT: To say the least they have been shady. But you're right they have a biological weapons program in China. It is active. It is widely believed that the category 4 biological laboratory in Wuhan where the United States now believes the virus originated was engaged in both civilian studies, you know virus prevention, pandemic prevention but also biological warfare techniques and strategies and equipment.

The Chinese really have not been forth coming. They only recently have started to change their estimates of how many people actually died. You know they've been saying only 3,000 people died. It's ridiculous. They delivered 4,000 urns containing the cremated remains of people to their families.

So yeah, the Chinese really have a lot to answer for. They are going to be threatened I believe also with lawsuits from millions of Americans that could potentially shut down their economy. Members of the US Senate are currently exploring legislation that would lift China's sovereign immunity and allow the government to be sued for propagating the Wuhan virus, this coronavirus that began in Wuhan China. So these are very serious things. The Chinese have a lot to answer for and they haven't even began to provide answers. Instead they are just sending out propaganda.

JD: Ken Timmerman giving us the details on China's biological warfare activity that is going on under deception and propaganda.

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

Ken's report on China's biological warfare activities over the last 20 years helps to give us a better picture of how communist China may have been the originator of the coronavirus pandemic. All of the facts have not been accumulated yet but China has much to answer for as it relates to this global coronavirus crisis, that's the political prospective. The prophetic prospective comes from Revelation 16:12 where China is referred to as the kings of the east who will be the major player in partnership with the antichrist, Revelation 18. The stage is being set for these prophecies to be fulfilled.

With four words Jesus Christ brought one hundred billion galaxies into existence

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: I know that the Lord Jesus Christ who created everything, Galatians 1:16, by Him are all things created said simply four words, "and the stars also". Was that not amazing? That was in a 24 hour day on that fourth day of creation when He spoke the stars into existence.

DD: Yes Jimmy, the stars also is a majestic statement. After all that is the vast majority of the physical creation, the Heavens above us.

JD: Talk to me about how many stars He did create and then how many galaxies there are out there.

DD: Well certainly the number of stars is beyond what we can number, but what we have been able to photograph and then with statistics come up with some numbers. We know that we live in a galaxy called the Milky Way. These are world pools of stars. They're like islands that God has spread across the universe. Our Milky Way holds on the order of one hundred billion stars, that would be 100,000,000,000. Then in addition to that the very same number for galaxies that we've seen is one hundred billion also. So then when you add up the grand total of all the observed stars in all the galaxies we end up with the number one followed by twenty-two zeros. A number beyond of course what we can comprehend.

JD: And for sure I cannot tell you what that number is but it is awesome as you think about it and what God has done. Jesus said it in four words, "and the stars also". Wow.

DD: Yes, the work of His fingers. He just spread them across the sky.

JD: Don DeYoung explaining this incredible fact that Jesus with only four words created all the stars and the galaxies in our universe.

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

As I listened to Don DeYoung realizing that he is a scientist and an astronomer my mind was almost incapable of assimilating the facts that he was giving me. Now I realize what the Psalmist meant in Psalm 19 where he says the heavens declare the glory of the Lord. That is the glory that brought the worlds into existence. Jesus Christ, Galatians 1:16, was the one who created the heavens and the earth and all that is in them. Revelation 1:8 states that Jesus is not only the beginning, the creator, but the end as well. He not only created everything He can reveal how the future an eternity will unfold.

The Jewish people, in the land that God gave them, is tangible evidence of the fact that the God of the Bible is real

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Why did God choose the Jewish people?

EM: The best we can do is answer it in scripture. He said that these were not the most numerous people on the earth. They weren't the wises people on the earth. They weren't the most honorable people on the earth. But He says this Jimmy, I love them and I chose them. He chose the Jewish people to be singularly a witness to the world and the eye on the future and the things to come. When we read the Psalms about the glory of God, about the Heavens, about His handiwork we must see Him. Thank God. Through the Jewish people we have the provision to do that. When God said you're going to be my witnesses, Isaiah 43, you're going to be my witnesses when He talks about a light to the nations look to Israel that's the light.

JD: People can spend time reading God's word from Genesis to Revelation and recognize how He has loved these people and protected these Jewish people and set them in a special place. Now He has set them into a land. Now they stand out to all of the world of the fact that God has put them now back into the land that He chose to give them and that land forever.

EM: This is such a strategic moment in history. God has brought these people uniquely into their land given to thousands and thousands of years ago a land in their hearts. Today they're in Jerusalem. Israel gives the Jewish people a home to which they can go in their time of trouble. And God is going to finish things up for all of us with them there in that land.

JD: Dr. Elwood McQuaid explaining why the Jews in the land that God gave them is tangible evidence of a true almighty God who is in charge.

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

As Elwood explained to us God chose the Jewish people, not because they were the most people on the earth and not because they promised to be good, but because they had not been good. God chose the Jew because He loved them, that's Deuteronomy 7:6-8. In fact that love is why He chose any of us. God has a plan for the Jewish people which has not been completed. That plan will be fulfilled.

Even during Holy week in Jerusalem, Israel's enemies are preparing to kill the Jews

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: This is holy week in Jerusalem, Passover and of course resurrection Sunday, but it's totally different this year isn't it?

DD: Very very different Jimmy and of course we knew it would be with all the closures that were ordered in Israel over the last few weeks.

JD: But at the same time Hamas which is located there in the Gaza Strip, the southwestern corner of the state of Israel there on the coastline. Hamas is threatening to suffocate six million Jews if indeed the Palestinians should acquire this coronavirus. Boy, that's a pretty tough threat.

DD: Well and there are cases again in both Gaza and certainly in Judea and Samaria the West Bank, Bethlehem area in particular. There are cases, the European Union announced that its giving over ninety million euros to the Palestinians to help them in the situation. But yes Hamas continues to talk about Israel's destruction as Iran does and as Hezbollah does and these other parties that as we know the Shiites at least see this as part of the end time struggle which Islam will come out on top basically to summarize what they believe. And that this may be another tool in destroying Israel.

Jimmy they've announced that they're putting up almost over night two new military outpost right along the Jordan River. We talked about that last week whether that would be annex or not. The Prime Minister wants annex it to Israel. But there's already some military installations down there even though its not formally Israeli territory. There adding two and they're putting them up overnight so that these nearly three thousand soldiers who are in isolation because they have been exposed to the virus. Not all of them have it but some of them do. They're young and most of them are ok. But they're going to put them in these new bases basically this weekend. So, the whole situation is very very weird, very odd.

JD: David Dolan reporting on holy week in Jerusalem where Israel's enemies are preparing to kill the Jews.

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

The prophetic scenario that is found in the Bible reveals that the enemies of the Jewish state will not stop until they wipe all of the Jews off the face of the Earth, that's Psalm 83:4. Even during holy week the time of Passover and resurrection Sunday these preparations are being made. These enemies of the Jewish state, Hezbollah, Iran and Hamas are foretold in Psalm 83:7, Ezekiel 35:10 and Ezekiel 38:5. These enemies of God's chosen people are today making preparation to kill the Jews so that their name will be forgotten forever.

Russia and China have expanded their economic and strategic cooperation against America

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Ken, what about China? Looks like a growing relationship with Russia, what's going on there?

KT: It's been building for a couple of years now. With most recently you see that the Chinese has helped the Russians build a new Siberian gas delivery system so they can sell natural gas to China. Why is this important? Because the United States is trying to limit Russia's gas deliveries to Europe as part of the sanctions on Russia. Russia and China have expanded pretty dramatically their economic and strategic cooperation over the past couple of years. Putin has stated openly that he will not stand in the way of China's growing world power of China's thirst to be the hegemon of the world and in exchange the Chinese have been supportive of Russia.

So you have these two major powers who remember they were both communist for many many decades. They have been rivals. They have been allies. Now it seems they are once again allies against the United States. This is an alliance which is directed against the United States both leaders acknowledge it. We have a President in the United States who understands it as well. The President has understood the goal of Chinese communist party and of their leadership which is to replace America as the worlds dominate power.

JD: Ken Timmerman explaining how Russia and China has been expanding their economic and strategic cooperation against America.

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

In Ken's report he gave us details on three nations that are key players in our world today, Russia, China and America. Two of these nations are mentioned in Bible prophecy. America however is not ever spoken of in the pages of the prophetic passages of God's word. Russia and China are both prominent players in prophecy. Ezekiel 38:2 speaks of Russia referred to in the passage as Magog and in Revelation 16:12 the King of the East is referring to China. The Ezekiel passage where Russia is key happens at the beginning of the Tribulation period that seven year period time. The Tribulation concludes with the Kings of the East, that's China as the leading actor on the stage at the end of that time of Jacobs trouble. These two powers are front and center today in fact, ready to fulfill God's prophetic plan.

Belief in the resurrection of Jesus Christ comes from a logical, historical and Biblical understanding of the facts

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: David, would you not say at least some Biblical reasons are also historic and logical reasons as well?

DJ: Without a doubt. The scriptures are historical documents. In fact there are thousands more copies of them then any other comparably old literary work.  And also I would say that while faith involves more than logic it doesn't contradict logic and it's never less than logic. The resurrection was recorded by all four gospel writers and among them was Luke who was not only a doctor but he was a historian who carefully researched everything he wrote about. Then in Acts chapter 9 we see Saul of Tarsus encountering there is a Savior. He went from being a mortal enemy of Christians to the for most missionary church planner and theologian of the first century. He suffered for what he did for this change including an attempted execution by stoning. How do we explain that if Jesus wasn't really alive?

Then in I Corinthians 15 Paul offers the historical and logical argument that the resurrected Christ was seen by as many as 500 people at one time. So there were eyewitnesses who would have been from all over the known world at that time. There are many other things that we can talk about but another important one is that contrary to cultural norms of the day the gospel writers used the testimony of women as an apologetic for the resurrection. This doesn't make any sense at all if it didn't really happen.

JD: David James with Bible in hand explaining why we must believe in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

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

My conversation with David James helped each of us from a logical, historical, and Biblical understanding to come to the conclusion that Jesus Christ the son of God did die on a cross, was buried, and then three days and three nights later did rise from the dead. This resurrection is the corner stone of our salvation, that's I Corinthians 15:1-5. Revelation 1:18 records the words of Jesus, His own testimony of His resurrection. His statement is followed then by Jesus telling John the Revelator to write down the things that he had seen, things which were happening at that time, and things which would happen in the future. Jesus Christ told John the future. Jesus because of His resurrection is also the foundation of Bible prophecy, Revelation 1:19. By the way Jesus Christ is the spirit of Bible prophecy, that's Revelation 19:10.

Millions of Americans say that the coronavirus pandemic is a wake up call from God

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: David, I think one of the reasons so many seem to be taking this seriously is because they are connecting it to the end times judgments of God.

DJ: God's prophetic clock is currently on pause until the Rapture of the church. That means God is sovereignly moving history toward the time when all remaining prophecies will be fulfilled even though no specific prophecies must be fulfilled until after the Rapture.

So when people say prophecy is being fulfilled right now there usually thinking about the Olivet Discourse in Matthew 24. Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives the disciples came to Him privately saying, tell us when will these things be and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age. So the answer Jesus gives is about the period of time just prior to His return which we refer to as the Tribulation. It's obvious why people think prophecy is currently being fulfilled but I would say there's a difference between what's happening now and the things that Jesus was warning about.

JD: Explain to us how would you tell the differences between these global events we're watching right now and God's coming judgments.

DJ: First of all earthquakes, volcanos, storms, famines, diseases and disasters in general and the suffering and deaths they bring are just a part of life in a sinful fallen world and have been since the fall in the Garden of Eden for millennia. We also know that believers in the church have been persecuted, tortured, and killed for their faith beginning in the first century. But what's coming after the Rapture of the church will make those things pale in comparison. Jesus said that the seven year Tribulation will be like nothing the world has ever seen. Perhaps the most important difference is that the prophesied future events will be a result of God's intentional and direct intervention in the affairs of men when He begins pouring out His wrath and judgment against the world. We've then promised that we won't experience a wrath in judgment of God. There will be international conflict, war, destruction, and famine that results in the death of one-fourth  of the worlds population. Things are going to get progressively worse over those seven years until the world becomes uninhabitable just prior to Jesus's return and no one wants to be around for that.

JD: David James explaining on why many Americans believe that the coronavirus pandemic is indeed a wakeup call from God.

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

The article that Dave used for his report is truly though provoking. The entire world seems to be alert to what the Lord is doing as He uses the coronavirus pandemic as a wake up call for each of us. I admit that the Lord has my attention. I realize that the pandemic Jesus spoke of in Matthew 24:7 is yet in the future. However, that excite me about the next event on God's calendar the Rapture of the church which by the way could happen today.

Iran is ready to strike Israel even during the United States sanctions and the coronavirus pandemic

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: I get word out of Israel that they fear that Iran may take this time when the focus is on the coronavirus crisis to go about putting together their nuclear weapon of mass destruction. It's a possibility that could be happening would you not say?

KT: The reason Iran itself is a lawless state. The government itself is an international pariah. They have not respected any of the suggestions of the World Health Organization. They've not put people under lock down. Some of their members of Parliament have died of the coronavirus.

The Supreme leader Ali Khamenei bazaar terminology in his address to the nation suggesting that the coronavirus was the work of the United States. Would they use this as an occasion to step up their enrichment of nuclear weapons grade fuel is an open question. We know already that they have enough highly enriched uranium to make a single weapon. They could have a bunch more because the International Atomic Energy Agency the IAEA has suspended its inspections. So we don't really know the current state of Iran's nuclear weapons program. We know what they had available to them a month ago and that was enough weapons grade fuel for a single bomb.

We know from the Supreme leaders speech that he is extraordinarily paranoid and is willing to accuse outside forces to help its own people. I think that's what we are really looking at here. We're looking at a regime that's on the ropes. They can't deal with the health situation. They can't deal with the needs of the people in Iran. People are increasingly panicked over the coronavirus in Iran and the regime is not facing up to that. So yes they could strike out against foreign target. We don't know what they are capable of doing. We only know what the International Atomic Energy Agency has told us about the nuclear capabilities but we don't know what they could do with them.

JD: Ken Timmerman with details on the fact that Iran could strike Israel even during these times of US sanctions and the coronavirus pandemic.

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

A study of Ezekiel 38 is evidence that Persia, modern day Iran mentioned in verse 5, that Iran is ready to strike at any time the Jewish state of Israel. That prophetic scenario written some 2,500 years ago could be fulfilled very quickly. Even during the troublesome times in which we find ourselves. In fact, maybe more so today than later. Remember first the Rapture takes place and then this Iranian prophecy to be fulfilled.

Passover is the first of the seven Jewish Feasts which God gave the Jewish people to foretell the Jewish Messiah, Jesus Christ

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Explain the seven Feasts days from God which are given to the Jewish people there in the book of Leviticus 23.

SH: The first Feast that God gives is Passover which of course talks about redemption. The children of Israel redeemed out of bondage from Egypt. Immediately following without any break what's so ever is the Feast of unleavened bread and that's why Jewish people often call Passover one name for the two Feasts. The Feast of unleavened bread is a reminder to the Jewish people to continue what they did that first night which happened only once, the Passover, the slaying of the lamb, the eating of the unleavened bread. They head out in a hurry. So we remember that 8 day Feast really two separate Feast.

Following that is three days later is the Feast of First fruits. First Fruits is a harvest Feast. And Jimmy we know as Christians First Fruits we know that Jesus rose from the grave. He's the first fruits and more will follow. Fifty days later we're reminded in the New Testament of the Feast of Pentecost. Then we come Rosh Hashanah the first of the civil New Year, the head of the year, Rosh Hashanah. Ten days following that is Yom Kippur and then following that is the Feast of Tabernacles. These Feasts tell a story. They tell a story of redemption and consummation to the Jewish people as a people and a land that God has selected for His vehicle to bring redemption to man kind. And of course for the Church of Jesus Christ this tells us the same thing, redemption to consummation. It's a wonderful story.

JD: Steve Herzig with the details of the seven Jewish Feast days that reveal the Jewish Messiah, Jesus Christ.

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

In the Old Testament book of Leviticus 23 the Lord gave a prophecy to the Jewish people to reveal the true Jewish Messiah, the person of Jesus Christ. As we study God's word in chapter 27 of Matthew we read how Jesus fulfilled the first three of the Jewish Feasts. Christ was crucified on Passover, buried on unleavened bread, and he resurrected on the Jewish Feast of First fruits, that's foretold in Leviticus 23 and a record of fulfillment in Matthew 27. Jesus will also fulfill the last three Jewish Feast as well. His second coming on Trumpets, He enters the Temple on Yom Kippur and he starts the Kingdom period on the Feast of Tabernacles. God's plan will be fulfilled.

Because of the coronavirus crisis in Israel, it will be a different Passover this year, in fact even the plans for the Sanhedrin to reenact the Passover sacrifice has been cancelled

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: The Sanhedrin had made a plan to reenact the Passover sacrifice. I know they have a temporary alter that they could set up very quickly. What's the status on that? Are they going to be able to go ahead with that or not?

WM: All houses of worship shall I call it, whether they're churches, mosques, whether they're the Temple Mount or even the Western Wall are basically closed.Various Protestant churches in the Old City, the Western Wall Plaza and I said the Temple Mount are virtually empty. There's a special permission for 10 people only to approach the Western Wall at of course the social distance spacing and that's it. The watch guards have about maybe 40 or so guards up on the Temple Mount to maintain the place. I don't know the real details about the church or anywhere else but everything is going is going to shut down and I don't think it's going to happen this year.

Of course the Temple Mount groups are publishing details about it and trying to keep the issue in the mind but this virus is a Biblical proportions Jimmy. If you and I at times and you especially talk about Biblical prophecy there's also Biblical history that we have to remember. People have to take care of plagues or other virus and other diseases that we read about in the Bible or in history and make sure we're healthy and safe for ourselves and our children.

JD: Winkie Medad reporting on a different Passover in Israel and cancelation of the Passover sacrifice by the Sanhedrin.

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

In Biblical times the Passover sacrifice was a major sacrifice in the life of the Jewish people. Even though there is no Temple in Jerusalem the present day Sanhedrin had planned to reenact that sacred sacrifice. Now due to the coronavirus crisis in Israel the Sanhedrin has canceled that reenactment which is a reminder that in the kingdom period that important sacrifice will be preformed by the Prince the resurrected King David, that's Ezekiel 45:21-22. That prophecy will be fulfilled during the kingdom period at the Temple that Jesus Christ, the Messiah, will build in Jerusalem, that's Zechariah 6:12 & 13. These prophecies yet to be fulfilled will in fact be fulfilled hopefully in the not too distant future.

Holy Week, Passover and Resurrection Sunday, will be different in Jerusalem this year

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Up coming this next week, Passover, it's the holy week. Passover beginning on Wednesday evening and then you have Easter on Sunday. It doesn't look like it's going to be a normal holy week in Israel, not this time.

DD: Quite a number of the rabbis though are pointing out that it's actually probably going to be the most authentic Passover since the original one in Egypt because of course there were plagues swirling around outside. The worst one, the first born dying was about to take place and God said take some of the Passover lambs blood and put it on your door post and then I'll passover your house, your family, and then you won't be affected by this plague. And so they were alone. There weren't big groups of people. It wasn't a congregational thing. It wasn't oh everyone went off to prayer like it has become over the century since then.

It's very much a holiday where you invite your friends and neighbors and you have everybody in but not now. You alone or your family alone and that's it; keep everyone out. So it's quite a situation to say the least. Definitely no tourist, no public gatherings, none of the usual things you would see going on for Passover and of course Easter following as you said right after that the same thing. The churches will be empty, they'll be closed. The synagogues are closed. The Prime Minister is urging everybody to observe this. And again the rabbi's pointing out it's kind of like the original Passover you're just staying at home sheltered from some evil thing that's out there. In this case of course it was the evil that the pharaoh was doing and God unleashed the plagues upon them so that he would release the people of Israel to go back to their promised land which thankfully did happen.

JD: David Dolan with his report on holy week in Jerusalem.

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

David's report on holy week in Jerusalem and his comparison to how Passover this year is very similar to the original Passover 3,500 years ago is strikingly amazing. But also I want you to notice how holy week some 2,000 years ago at the time of Jesus Christ and His crucifixion is also similar as well. Passover at that time in history took place starting on Wednesday evening as it does this year and Christ was crucified on Passover the next afternoon. Remember the Jewish day begins in the evening at sundown and ends the next sundown.

2,000 years ago Jesus Christ resurrected on the Jewish feast of first fruits which is Sunday. This is evidence that Jesus Christ was the fulfillment of Bible prophecy, the prophecies of the Jewish Feast days.

Christians are misusing an Old Testament promise for the coronavirus crisis

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: I've got to say right now that I think this all brings us to another passage of scripture that we're hearing frequently especially right now as we've hear before and other times of crisis and that is II Chronicles 7:13 & 14. That is concerning judgment, repentance and restoration. Give us your thoughts on that David.

DJ: Well of course I dealt with the use of that passage by Jonathan Cahn in the Harbinger when he linked the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 to God's judgment as well. The very familiar passage says this, when I shut up heaven and there is no rain or command the locusts to devour the land or send pestilence among my people, if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

So the coronavirus pandemic would fall under the category of pestilence in the Bible. It's something that God can use to bring judgment. However, the context of that passage is the dedication of the first Temple and the Lord's words of both warning and comfort to Solomon. So this is a promise made to Israel that God will restore His people as a nation if they repent in the face of judgment. But Jimmy neither American nor any other country can claim these promises. This isn't a guarantee to us as a nation. But on the other hand the Lord is gracious and He's loving and kind and so we can take comfort in who He is as reflected in this passage. We can find refuge in our personal relationship to Him. If there is sin there is forgiveness when we repent.

You know Jesus rebuked the disciples for their lack of faith in the storm but that rebuke wasn't because they didn't believe Jesus would save them. The problem was they weren't trusting Him for the outcome for whatever if might be. And you know sometimes, even for believers, sometimes the boat does sink even when we have great faith rather than fear.

JD: David James, Bible in hand explaining how Christians are misusing the Old Testament promise from II Chronicles 7:14.

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

The promises of God's word are absolute when used in the proper context. As we study the Bible we must remember that we interpret the Lord's promises from a technical interpretation. Who was He speaking to and for what purpose? There is also a spiritual application for each promise as well.

We must use God's method of interpretation especially as we study the prophetic passages to know for sure God's plan for the future.

The coronavirus crisis in Rome, Italy and the actions of Pope Francis may be a precursor for the fulfillment of Bible prophecy

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: The focus of the world basically has been Rome for the coronavirus outbreak. Have you been able to monitor any of the activities by the Pope that would possibly displease the Lord at this time?

MG: Well very much so Jimmy, I've been monitoring it very closely because as you know that's the epicenter center. He has made some very bazaar statements but this is very consistent with his 7 years in the Papacy. He is asking the Virgin Mary to protect the city of Rome and all of Italy. But it's really interesting his focus is on Mary instead of Christ. He offered a prayer to the Virgin Mary for this crisis and he wanted to intrust not only the city of Rome but also the Roman Catholic Church.

I just want to share part of his prayer just to give you an idea. "We intrust ourselves to you, you salvation of the Roman people know what we need. We are certain that you will provide help for us, we seek refuge under your protection o'holy mother of God, we ask you to deliver us from every danger o'glorious and blessed virgin."

You know as I looked at that prayer Jimmy the verse that came to my mind was king David writing under the inspiration of the holy spirit in Psalm 62:6. He said, God alone is my protector and deliverer. He is my refuge. So if God alone is our refuge then why is the Pope praying to Mary. But he's been exulting Mary to the level of godhood giving her all the attributes of God.

JD: Are not all these moves enhancing the prophetic scenario that's found there in Revelation 17, the false church?

MG: Well very definitely. Satan will use lying signs and wonders to deceive the world. Satan is using this to bring about what you see in Revelation 17 the global church.

JD: Mike Gendron helping us to understand how the coronavirus crisis in Rome and the activities of Pope Francis may be a precursor to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.

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

Mike's report gives us insight into the prophetic passage of Revelation 17. This passage foretells of a one world church that will be headquartered in Rome. This is what John the Revelator wrote some 2,000 years ago. Along with Mike's input and the religious world's actions in concert with the Pope helps us to see how the false church will come to power. Remember that prophecy happens after the Rapture of the church which could take place today.

The coronavirus pandemic seems to be slowing down the conflicts of our world today

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Ken from your vantage point there in Southern France talk to me about the fact is this coronavirus slowing the world's conflicts or seemingly intensifying them?

KT: Well I think for the time being it's slowing things down because you know NATO and the United States and our allies in NATO are forced to reduce our military operations. We've done that in Iraq. You hear very little about Western military operations in Syria. The truce that the Russian's negotiated with Turkey in Northern Syria that went into affect on March 6th still seems to be holding more or less. There has not been massive violations of the truce. While that is going on of course you have Iranian backed militias in Syria. Surly with the wink and the nod from the Syrian government and probably from the Russians themselves, they have been moving up weapons and material and men closer to Idlib in the north west of the country in preparation for a future battle. That battle has not happened yet.

One has to wonder how this Chinese virus came about. How it left China, infected Europe, infected the United States and infected Iran as well. But essentially left almost all of the Middle East, Africa and Russia unaffected. Even Beijing was not hit with the virus. They closed down Province where Wuhan is but Beijing was not particularly affected. They had some cases but they were pretty much shut down.

JD: Ken Timmerman with his analysis of how the coronavirus pandemic seems to be slowing down the growth and intensity of the conflicts around our world.

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

Ken's report on the conflicts of this world today seemingly slowing down is very interesting in light of the prophetic scenario that is found in the pages of Bible prophecy. In Matthew 24, the Olivet Discourse Jesus spoke of events that will happen during the Tribulation period, that's that 7 year period of time between the Rapture and the second coming. Jesus mentions deception in Matthew 24:4, 5, 11, 24. He speaks of wars and rumors of war. In verse 7 of Matthew 24 He mentions pestilence, pandemic disease.

As we watch all of these things happening we must remember they happen during the Tribulation period after the Rapture. Today's events are only a precursor to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
